In may this year, a meeting was held among members of the district Committee at the camp in Pengkalan Besar to discuss means of saving the civil movement organisation in Tangkak district from collapse. It was pointed out that with the constant attack by the Security Forces, the pe ople had become af raid and would not help us for fear that they might be betrayed by those who sur rend e red to the Police. Moreover, the morale of our men was very low and unless something was done , more and more men would give up like FOO YONG CHUAN ( A ) who had surrendered to the Police in April, 1950. It was decided at this meeting to re-organise the District Committee so as to get more closer to the pe ople and at the same time to increase the morale of the men. the District Committee as follOWS :- The plan was to set up various sections in Organising Section Racial Work Propaganda Section Treasurer Communication SIONG POO BOON CHIEW and AH WET CHAN AH PHIANG TAN HUAT KIAM CHIEW : This proposed re-organi sation was intended to be sent to the Circle Committee member, SIOW CHOON for anproval. no changes had been made at the time of my surrender.
