(1)Merdeka Magazine Clipping,Rosihan Anwar, p-74,Jakarta ,Feb.1946.

In Sunday, August 19th 1945, 12.00 pm ,  I have sat in the meeting room of Independece Committee in the KOMONFU (?) building. Two days after the Indonesia Nation Independece Proclamation had done.

Now they have talked about the problem of the Government’s administrations , how many the ministaries ? How to countered the Japanese’s power that still existed.?

They meeting very slowly   and  very difficult to got the  decision. I looked the face of the mambers  one  by one, who sat around the the long desk , they were  behalfed of the people from all over Indonesia.

Mr Poedje from Bali not much talked , Dr Amir from Sumatra have seen didn’t have interested , Kiai Wahid Hasyim ( the father of the 4th Indonesia Presiden Abdulrahman Wahid-auth) always standed from his chair , walked in and out the room.

The meeting was went  on with the chief was   Ir Soekarno, since Saturday (wrong Friday-auth),He was choosed as The President of Republic Indonesia.

The meeting not so clear (tersendat-sendat) , and not stable (gelisah) , maybe because the unfixed future situations.

I didn’t know why in the important day of August 17th 1945  when the Independent of Indonesia nation proclaimed to all over the world , oh why I didn’t in Djakarta that day ?

I don’t blame that everything went  suddenly , I just took a bed rest in Soekaboemi Hospital . The Atomic Bom also suddenly .

The President have stood up, the hammer was sounded, What was that ?The meeting Off ,because the Sajoeti Melik’s   unanswer-ed questions , dimmissed!

Outside the meetingroom, I have met Mr Kasman Singadimedjo. H e brought the unlacky informations, The Homeland Guard (PETA=Pembela Tanah Air, read “Dai Nippon in Java” about PETA-auth ) must be dismiss-ed.(Dibubarkan) because noused anymore.

Everybodied who hearded this informa-tions were silenced (diam) and St Makmoer was cried like a baby, he sat down and put his handkerchief.

The wether very hot, no wind flowed and I went back to my office . In the Car I have thinked:” Were impossibbled my Homeland passed all of the future’s difficulties? Very heavy the duties were waiting ?
