    EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS FROM EVERY TOWN AND CITY OF VIETNAM CONVERGE ON THE CAPITAL SAIGON, TO HOLD AN EXHIBITION OF PHYSICAL CULTURE.

    THIS YEAR TOO, AT THE SAIGON STADIUM THE YOUTHS THRONGED IN THEIR UNIFORMS CARRYING THE FLAGS OF THEIR SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES.

    THE EXHIBITION WATCHED BY TENS OF THOUSANDS PARENTS AND PHYSICAL CULTURE FANS BEGAN WITH VIETNAMESE NATIONAL ANTHEM. SPEECHES FOLLOWED.

    THEN IT WAS A FIELD DAY FOR THE YOUNG GIRLS AND BOYS. THEY PARADED THEIR PHYSICAL BEAUTY, SENSE OF TIMING AND CONTROL OF THEIR LIMBS.

    NOT ONLY STUDENTS BUT BOY SCOUTS, NAVY VOLUNTEERS JOINED THE IMPRESSIVE MASS DISPLAY OF PHYSICAL CULTURE.

    IN VIETNAM THE GOVERNMENT TAKES A KEEN INTEREST IN THE YOUTHS. IT HAS A MINISTRY TO TAKE CARE OF THEM.
