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.
