SEABROOK, N. H. (AP) - Hundreds
of sign-carrying protesters walked]
peaceful picket lines outside the
Seabrook nuclear power plant yester-
day in a change of tactics aimed at
preventing workers from re-entering
the construction site.
About 800 of an original 1,500-strong
anti-nuclear force remained at the site
after state troopers and National Guar-
dsmen thwarted repeated attempts to
occupy the facility over the weekend.
THE PROTESTERS massed at the
main gate yesterday, walking picket
lines or blocking the gate and saying
they would try to keep workers from re-
entering the plant. The workers,
however, were not scheduled to return
to work until today following the
Columbus Day holiday.
A 30-person contingent from a
Massachusetts group called
"Amesbury Parents Against Nukes"
joined the protest. Many pushed baby
carriages.
Nearby shops reported a booming
business from protesters seeking dry

socks and flannel shirts as the tem-
perature dropped to the low 30s during
the night and the low 50s yesterday.
"I THINK we'll tolerate this for a
while," said state Attorney General
Thomas Rath, standing behind the gate
with a contingent of troopers and guar-
dsmen.
He said he was "not terribly concer-
ned about it" as long as order was
maintained and traffic was kept
moving on U.S. 1 outside the coastal
plant site.
A single, brief attempt to occupy the
plant yesterday failed after troopers
chased away about 15 people who
managed to rip down a large section of
the eight-foot chain-link fence surroun-
ding the 140-acre construction site.
SATURDAY AND Sunday, the
protesters made repeated attempts to
get inside the compound but were
driven back by 500 helmeted state
troopers and guardsmen, using tear
gas, Mace, riot clubs and dogs. It was
the largest show of force in five years of
protests at the controversial nuclear
plant-site.
About 600 demonstrators blockaded
the gate Sunday and refused to move
although they were sprayed wlth water,
Mace and smoke from a generator.
No serious injuries had been reported
during the three days of protests, but 20
demonstrators were arrested, 19 of
them charged with trespassing and one
with criminal mischief.

NEW DELHI, India (AP) - Tens of
thousands of bereaved Indians flocked
to the home of Jayaprakash Narayan
yesterday to mourn the death of the 76-
year-old national hero.
Narayan, an independence fighter
who later adopted a non-violent
philosophy, climaxed his public life by
rallying the forces that toppled Indira
Gandhi from power.
THE U.S.-EDUCATED Narayan died
of a heart ailment in his sleep early
yesterday at his home in the eastern
Indian city of Patna.
After his death was announced, 50,000
mourners gathered outside the"house,
the news agency United News of India
reported.
Later, with thousands of weeping.
men, women and children trailing
behind, the body was taken in a flower-
bedecked vehicle through Patna's
streets to a hall where it was to lie in
state until a state funeral and
cremation today.-
HUNDREDS OF thousands were ex-
pected at the funeral, likely to be the
biggest in India since the death of
Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in
1964.
Prime Minister Charan Singh
eulogized Narayan as the "conscience
of the nation."

Born in a small village in eastern In-
dia, Narayan as a young man dabbled
briefly in India's independence struggle.
before setting out to complete his
education in theUnited States. By the
time he graduated from Ohio State
University in 1929, he had become a
communist, but on his return to India
he did not associate with communist
groups.
JOINING NEHRU and Mohandas
Gandhi, he rose to eminence in the
movement to end British colonial rule
of India.
He was arrested with other indepen-
dence leaders in 1942, but escaped and
organized a Marxist guerrilla band
called the "Freedom Brigade." He was
captured and spent 1943-46 in, jail. On
his'release'he again took up the Gan-
dhian philosophy of non-violence, foun-
ded 'the Indian Socialist Party and
denounced Soviet influence in India.
After independence in 1947, he turned
his back on politics, though at one point
Prime Minister Nehru viewed him as a
potential successor.
NARAYAN LED a campaign to win
donations of land for the landless, per-
suaded wanted bandits to surrender
and earned the respect - rare for a
plains Indian - of the rebel Naga
tribesmen.
But the tall, square-jawed Narayan

may be remembered most for his role
in bringing down the regime of Prime
Minister Indira Gandhi.
He helped lead a budding student
movement in the early 1970s that
focused on corruption and suspected
authoritarian tendencies in Gandhi's
government. Narayan, whose charisma
and public stature caused the nation to
take notice, demanded Gandhi's
resignation after a high court found her
guilty of corrupt election practices, in
June 1975.
He was among the first batch of Gan-
dhi's critics jailed before she assumed
dictatorial powers in a state of
emergency that lasted 19 months. He
suffered kidney failure during his five
months' detention and never fully
recovered.
Confident of national support and
disarray among oppositioq groups,
Gandhi called for a general election in
1977. But Narayan helped unite factions
opposed to Gandhi's rule into the
Janata Party which brought down her
government in a stunning victory at the
polls in March 1977.
