                                           PANGERAN DIPONEGORO

          When he was still a child he was called Raden Mas Ontowiryo. He was the son of Sultan Hamengkubuwono III, but he spent most of his time not in the palace, but at Tegalrejo, a small village outside the capital of the sultanate. There, at the small village, he lived with his grandmother, who first imbued him with knighthood and the love for religion. Raden Mas Ontowiryo grew up to be a knight and a religious man, and since he was the son of a sultan, he was entitled to the title "pangeran", prince. Prince Diponegoro was as brave as he was pious.
          The prince hated the' Dutch very much because too often they interfered with the internal affairs of the sultanate. People became poorer and poorer because of the Dutch policy. Various taxes were levied. People had to pay a tax for crossing the bridges. They had to pay a tax for walking along main roads. Prince Diponegoro did not like this. His heart was always with the common people. His love was for them; his hatred was towards the Dutch and the nobilities who sided with foreigners.
          The Dutch knew that Prince Diponegoro hated them. It might not have been a coincidence that, without the prince's permission, they had stakes planted in his field at Tegalrejo to mark the building of a road. This was a good enough reason for the Dutch to seize him. But he did not surrender himself, of course. The Dutch attacked; the prince and his followers counter attacked. Thus the Diponegoro war broke out. The year was 1825.
          More and more people sided with the prince. Most of them were common people who loved him. Most of them were people who believed that he was fighting against the Dutch for a holy cause, namely to drive the foreigners away from his beloved country. Thus the war went on and on, taking a heavy tool on both sides. It was only by trickery that the Dutch were eventually able to end the war. The prince was invited to attend the negotiation in Magelang. There he was seized. The year was 1830. He was exiled to Manado. In 1834 he was moved to Ujungpandang and in 1855 he died there. But his spirit continued, and still continues, to live. He died as a hero, he died as an old soldier. Do old soldiers die'? No. Old soldiers never die; they just fade away, until young soldiers appear to replace them.

                                             POPULATION PROBLEMS

          Indonesia, having the world's fifth largest population and endowed with extensive and varied natural resources, has the potential to become a dread and prosperous power. But for the time being she is facing mains problems: how to cope with her population growth, how to produce enough food, how to provide people with jobs and how to organize enough exports so that the country can pay her way in the world. Indonesia's most valuable resource is her people. But for Indonesia, as with other developing countries, the possession of this particular kind of resource can prove to be a severe impediment to economic development. The government is endeavoring to cope with the population problem in two ways; on the one hand by encouraging people to move, either spontaneously or under the official transmigration programme from densely populated Java, Madura and Bali to the wider open spaces of the outer islands of Sumatera, Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Irian Jaya, and on the other hand by fostering family planning. Transmigration is more than a response to population growth, it also carries profound implications for balanced national development and for national security.
          In its response to the population growth, however, Indonesia must continue to rely upon family planning objectives, the establishment of happy and prosperous
small families and the reduction of the population growth to 1% by 1990. The country's family planning can indeed offer valuable lessons for other parts of the world - in terms not only of result achieved but also of the democratic way in which they have been achieved. Indonesia's family planning programme has become one of the most remarkable of all attempts to institute birth control on a massa scale. Fertility has been declining even faster than Indonesia's own population planners had anticipated. Although the country's population had by 1979 reached almost 142 million, the rate of increase by 1979 had been brought down to less than 2%.
          One of the most heartening aspects of the programme lies in the fact that the great majority of those accepting family planning come from the rural areas. It is indeed in the rural areas that the great breakthrough has occurred. The successful outcome derives largely from the initiative taken by dedicated and imaginative officials in moving the programme out of the clinic.

A.economic development
