protest leader, who refused to give his
name. Some protesters said they would
return today and try again to seize con-
trol of the plant.
As high tide began to flood the mar-
shes, protesters began retreating,
saying they would regroup on dry land
and map new strategy. The more
militant vowed to stay.
"We're staying until we get the plant,
no matter what," said Lea Segal, 22, of
Lexington, Mass.
Others, like Bob Sanders, 24, of
Philadlelphia, were discouraged.
"WE'LL JUST have to get more
numbers and use a better strategy the
next time," he said.
AKRON, Ohio (AP)-An educational
exhibition tracing the history of tire
development is scheduled to tour 84
cities in the United States during the
next few months.
The show, which opened in. Akron,
uses multimedia techniques and
features an X-ray machine that shows
the internal construction of a steel-
belted radial tire.
It is sponsored by the Firestone Tire
& Rubber Co.

The Boston-based Coalition for Direc-
tion, an anti-nuclear splinter faction
which organized the protest, had hoped
to draw up to 10,000 demonstrators to
the site where the $2.6 billion twin
generator plant is being built:
The demonstrators have said that if
they were arrested they will refuse to
identify themselves in an effort to clog
the courts.
GOV. HUGH GALLEN had said all
demonstrators who trespassed at
Seabrook this weekend would be

arrested. He called in extra judges to
process cases quickly.
Armed with wire cutters and two
'days worth of food; the protesters left
their campsites on private property
shortly after dawn yesterday, sloshing,
through marshes that surround much of
the plant.
Approaching from all directions, the
protesters-chanting "Sin-ergy" and
singing anti-nuclear songs-snipped
through the fences and dragged the
barricades down with ropes.

BATON-WIELDING troopers from
five New England states quickly moved
in, hosing down the demonstrators with
fire hoses, mace and tear gas and
driving them back. German shepher'dI
attack dogs kept the protesters at bay:;
as construction crews replaced the torn
down fence sections.
Covering their faces with plastic"
sheets and makeshift gas mask*'
groups of up to 60 demonstrator9°"
-redoubled their efforts and charged thie
fence again.

Princeton dedicates Kent State statue

PRINCETON, N.J. (Reuter) - A life-size sculpture
commemorating the 1970 killings of four Kent State Univer-
sity students by National Guardsmen was dedicated yester-
day on the Princeton University campus after being spurned
by Kent State officials.
The sculpture, by New Jersey artist George Segal, is en-
titled, "Abraham and Isaac: In Memory of May 4, 1970." It
was commissioned by the Mildred Andrews Foundation.in
Cleveland for installation at the Ohio university to com-
memorate the killings at an anti-Vietnam war demon-
BUT OFFICIALS at the university, where the shootings
nearly a decade ago stunned the nation, turned down the gift.
They had said it was inappropriate to remember the killings
with a sculpture depicting an act of violence.

The sculpture, in bronze which has been painted black,,
depicts Isaac pleading on his knees, his hands tied, as
Abraham stand menacingly before him with a knife. Unlike'
the Biblical scene, there is no angel to warn Abraham to sto,
or a ram for him to sacrifice instead of his son.
"I think it's time to look at that sad situation in persyr
tive and see it not as politics, radical left against ra ia
right, but see it instead in moral and ethica terms, war bet-
ween generations," said Segal. He is known for life-likp
sculptures depicting people in ordinary situations.
SARAH SCHNEUER, whose daughter Sandra was among-
those slain, said at the dedication ceremony: "I wasn't sure
prised Kent State rejected it. They always tried to cover upc
the facts."
A Kent State spokesperson has said: "We'd lose no matter,.
what we did."

TWO SATURDAY AFTERNOON shoppers at the People's Produce Co-op, located on Fourth Ave. next to the Wildflour
Bakery and the Fourth Ave. Food Co-op, leave the store empty-handed. Due to financial difficulties, the co-op's stock is
diminishing, and workers must collect at least $500 to keep it from closing down this week.

timistic the co-op will get the loan.
"It's my personal opinion that if we..,
can get the loan, we're a viable enough=
institution that. . we're good for
paying itack," said Seidman.
Seidman said she thinks the co-op'sF
main difficulty is poor business-
management. "The basic problem is
that we don't have one full-time person'
to coordinate everything - it's got to b6
run as a business forit to work."
THE CO-OP never has been able to
afford a paid staff.: The two salaried'
coordinators are paid through federal
Comprehensive Employment Training
Act (CETA) funds, and one of those -+
Foy - is leaving for another job nex$
week. Due to a government freeze on
CETA funds, the co-op can't hire a

The store has collected $68 in
donations since the sign was-posted by
