BAN THE BOMB: Young protestors, many of them Community High School students, staged a "die-in" at downtown Ann Arbor intersections Wednesday. Joining hands in circles in the streets, they fell to the ground, symbolically simulating death by nuclear war. They walked through the downtown area chanting: "No, no, we won't glow." Somewhere along the way, they were joined by members of other groups protesting U.S. involvement in Central America. Ann Arbor police arrested two protestors on charges of disorderly conduct.

20,000 Gather At 'M' Stadium In Moratorium Highlight Yesterday's "moratorium" protest against the Vietnam war remained peaceful through its climax last night with a Michigan Stadium rally, where approximately 20,000 persons, mostly University students and faculty, cheered a dozen speakers including Sen.Philip A. Hart, D-Mich. U-M class attendance was estimated by U-M officials as 60 per cent below normal for a Wednesday, usually a busy day on the U-M academic Schedule. Local expressions of criticism of the "moratorium" were also peaceful, consisting mainly of a few dozen porchlights and auto headlights turned on in daylight hours, a statement by the local Veterans of Foreign Wars commander, and a number of "Win the War" signs in store windows.
