B1rez nev in
summit talk
By The Associated Press
President Nixon landed in Moscow yesterday and began
a series of summit talks with Soviet leader Leonid Brezh-
Nixon's visit, which marked the first state visit ever
by an American president to the Soviet Union, finally
ended speculation that U.S. bombing of North Vietnam's
harbors might endanger the talks.
Nixon was greeted at the Moscow airport by a band,
Soviet President Nikolai Podgorny and Premier Alexei
Kosygin. U. S. officials had expected Brezhnev, the Com-
munist Party chief to be present.
The President sped in a motorcade to the Kremlin
along a wide boulevard lined with thousands-possibly
100,000 Muscovit e s- -- -
watching him go by.
The President met with
Brezhnev at the Kremlin for

Pentagon, beaten back

Special To The Daly
ARLINGTON, Va.-Police used
horses and clubs to drive back
anti-war demonstrators trying to
enter the Pentagon yesterday
after their parade permit had
expired. Some 250 arrests cul-
minated a weekend of anti-war
actiivty in the nation's capital.
Yesterday's rally at the Penta-
gon began in the morning when
600 marchers, including Dr. Ben-
jamin Spock and Father James
already assembled on the Penta-
gon steps.
Waiting for the protesters
were about 80 riot-equipped
police. And inside the building
itself were 400 military police
who had been sent down from
Fort Beloir, Md. on alert.
The marchers assembled for
3 their rally soon after they ar-
rived at the Pentagon. Their
permit allowed them to be in
the area until early afternoon.
Members of the Vietnam Vet-
erans Against the. War moved
to the front of the group. Sev-
eral of them burned army jack-
ets and asked others to turn in
their draft cards. At least ten
draft cards were ignited with
flames from the blazing army

Speakers discussed what the
demonstrators should do after
their permit expired. The final
vote indicated an even split be-
tween those who wanted to sit
and await arrest and those who
wished to try to walk single file
into the building.
Demonstrators who attempted
to enter the building were ar-
rested, frisked, and placed into
army buses which transported
them to the Alexandria Jail.

At first there was little vio-
lence as guards blocked the for-
ward push and began hauling
off the demonstrators. But as
the effort continued, guards

didate. She attends Tappan Jun-
ior High School.
The board refused to p 1 a e e
Taco's name on the ballot be-
cause state law requires that a
candidate be 18 years of age.
The suit claims that the state,
by denying Yaco's right to run
for the school board, violates
the 14th amendment, which
guarantees equal protection un-
der the law to all citizens.
A three-judge panel will rule
on the case immediately. If the
panel rules against Yaco, the
case will be appealed immediate-
ly to the Supreme Court.
Because the school election
is only three weeks away, at-
torney Gabe Kaimowitz has re-
quested the issue of temporary
and permanent injunctians to al-
low Yaco's name to appear on
the ballot.
Yaco, a member of the Tap-
pan Junior High School S t u-
dent Union, the Ann Arbor Stu-
dent Union, Youth Liberation,
and the Student Advisory School
Board, said that the c a m -
paign "is not meant to threaten
or test" the Ann Arbor school
system, but to make it "face
the students' demand fhr power
over their lives."
The HRP platform calls for the
age of majority to be reduced to
14 years. This is based partly
on Gov. Milliken's Commission
on the Age of Majority, which
found last year that Jost rdult
characteristics are reachrd at
approximately age 14.

which HRP has challenged the

for one year before .'unning for
office there.
