Students Call on Marshal Xu

At about 9:00 P.M. on May 21, seven students of the Science and Technology University called on Marshal Xu Xiangqian at his residence. They were received by Marshal Xu's staff workers.

A representative of the students said: The troops are going to suppress the students, and it is highly possible that a bloody incident will occur tonight. They asked Marshal Xu to say a few words.

A staff worker of Marshal Xu told the students: The troops are carrying out the martial law tasks to restore the capital's normal order and safeguard the situation of stability and unity. These tasks are by no means targeted at the students. Army comrades are, under no circumstances, willing to see a bloody incident and will do everything to avert such an incident. Please do not listen to rumors. It is hoped that the students will return to school as quickly as possible and help the government to calm down the situation with a rational attitude.

The staff worker reported to Marshal Xu what he had told the students, and Xu agreed with what he told them. After hearing the staff worker's words, the students left Marshal Xu's residence immediately.
