ATLANTA, Ga. - A thousand
marchers rallied yesterday at the
State Capitol in a traffic-tangling
protest to the refusal of the Geor-
gia House to seat Negro Rep.-elect
State patrolmen shoved about
50 sign-wielding demonstrators
from the Capitol steps in the aft-
ermath of the rally. The group
flailed officers with picket signs,
pocketbooks and umbrellas.
The protest was aimed at the
House refusal last Monday to seat
Bond, 26, a Democrat from Atlan-
ta. The refusal followed Bond's
endorsement of a statement which
described U.S. involvement in Viet
Nam as "aggression."
