Bercgovoy had followed the unmanned ship in tandem around the earth for two days and during this period had ma- neuvered his Soyuz 3 so as to approach Uie pilotless sister ship. If any attempt was made to link up the manned and un- manned ships, something Uie Russians have not done, it was not announced. Tass, Uie Soviet news agency, said Soyuz 2's "program for checking its sys- tem and for joint mmeuveriiiE and approach of Uie spaceships Soyuz 2 and Soyuz 3 was fully carried out." Meanwhile, Beregovoy was reported to have completed his 33rd orbit of Uie earth, and "all the systems of Uie ship continue to function Tass said. Tass said a retro engine was switched on aboard Soyuz 2 on command from earth and 26 minutes later Uie spaceship "en- tered the dense layers of the at- mosphere, made a controlled descent wiUi aerodynamic quali- ty and landed. It was pararturt- ed down wlUi Uie use of a soft- landing system. at Uie last stage." The announcement did not give the location of the landing. Earlier today a Soviet scien- tist said the purpose of Berego- voy's flight is to develop dock- ing systems, essential for Rus- sla's announced program oC eventually constructing huge or- biting platforms In space serve as launch pads for rockets to the moon and planets.

World Community Day Observance On Sunday Czech Youths Demonstrate In Prague PRAGUE (AP) Several hundred Czechoslovak students shouting "better dead than shame" marched on Prague Castle today as President Lud- vlk-Svoboda was presiding at a celebration of the 50th anniver sary of Czechoslovakia's inde- pendence. Police hastily formed and blocked Uie students while the gates to Uie palace courtyard were padlocked. Several times the crowd, which included many girls, rushed against Uie police lines but they held. There had been concern among Uie leaders of Czechoslo- vakia's Communist party that students and others might use the anniversary to demonstrate against Soviet occupation of their "country ;and -that -this would provoke reaction from the Russians. The leaders went to great lengths to make clear that demonstrations might bring Soviet tanks back into the capl tal.

Gas Line To Serve Eastalco New Project Extends From Clarksburg To Frederick By BILL GRAFFAM Montgomery Burenu Chief CLARKSBURG A new 8 Inch natural gas transmission line which will In part supply neces- sary fuel to Eastalco is ex- pected to be completed on its mid November schedule, a Washington Gas Light official said Friday. A portion of the new lino will run from Old Baltimore Road here to the Montgomery County Line and then on to the City of Frederick. The plans for the Montgom- ery county portion of the one were recently approved by the Montgomery County Planning Board. The new line will tie into the 30 inch supply line of the At- lantic Seaboard Company al Clarksburg. The gas line will insure an adequate supply of gas to the Frederick Gas Company which, In turn, will serve the Eastalco facility at Buckeystown which will need the fuel in the first phases of its operation. Eastalco will use the fuel in Its first preparations of one of the necessary components of the "pots" in which alumina is re- duced to aluminium. Such components, v.-hich must be made continuously at Eastal- co, have to be in adequate sup- ply before the major production of the new facility can start. Plant Manager Charles A. Schroer said this work was ex- pected to commence in mid 1969. The gas fuel will also be used by Eastalco in other processes involved in maintaining proper temperatures of metals used as alloys with aluminum. The approval by the Montgom- ery Planning Board now leaves the Washington Gas Company with Nixon Defends Agnew Against Conflict Charge NEW YORK (AP) Richard M. Nixon, appearing suddenly embattled in the final week of tils presidential campaign, is de- fending running mate Spiro T. Agnew against conflict-of-inter- est charges. Nixon, making his first net- work television interview ap- pearance in two years, also sug- gested directly Sunday night that "people within the White House not President trying to achieve a Vietnam bombing halt in an llth hour effort to boost the can- didacy of Democrat Hubert H. Humphrey. He did this in trying to explain an earlier public statement that stirred contro- versy. The defensive stance of the GOP candidate, generally re- garded as the frontrunner in the campaign, was further under- scored by public statements from two top aides attacking a national public opinion poll that, it was suggested, will soon indi- cate a Humphrey spurt. Nixon, heading for rallies to- day in Albany, N.Y. and Pitts- burgh, was questioned about Agnew's past business dealings on "Face the Nation" on CBS. Asked to comment on an edi- torial Saturday in The New York Times accusing Agncw of "clear and repeated conflicts of and controversial real estate deals, Nixon said: "This is the lowest kind of gutter politics that a great newspaper could possibly en- gage in. It is not news that's fit to print..." Agnew, campaigning in San Francisco, had no comment Sunday night. Contending that the charges against Uie Republican vice presidential candidate were stale and had been answered two years ago, Nixon said, "A retraction will be demanded of Times legally" today. He I said he was sure any retrac would be printed "back with corset ads or Uie classifieds to- ward Uie end of Uie week when' nobody will pay any attention." The Times, in its news pages, subsequently printed a :ommcnt by John B. Oakes, edi- :orjal page chief: 'The editorial was a moderately worded expression of some of the reasons for the Times' belief that Mr. Agnew is indeed unfit to be vice president of the United States. "Amidst all his verbal denun- ciation Mr. Nixon denies no statement of fact in the editorial except one detail on which he is quite imprecise. As soon as we know exactly which one of Mr. Agnew conflicts of interest it is that Mr. Nixon challenges, we Mill of course reinvestigate. If any statement of ours should prove to be in error, we will say (Continued On Page Five) Anti-War Mob Attacks U.S. Embassy In London he coordination of its plans with the State Roads Commission and he Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission.

Viets materials, and other devices de- signed to encourage Individual discovery in mathematics. According to Lambdln, some of the computers are of a fairly sophisticated nature. By the addi- tion of a programming device, the computer has the ability to accept a program of up to 80 steps. The computers are de- signed expressly for high school use and a workbook Is provid- ed which enables Die teacher to coordinate the curriculum with specific sections In the book. The computer can be used to supple- ment Un curriculum atall levels, from the general mathematics classes In the ninth grade to the advanced math of the twelfth grade.

Nixon advocates "an increasing militarization of American life and American foreign policy." To begin his stretch-drive for the presidency, the Increasingly optimistic Democratic candi- date led his forces into a state rich with electoral votes but one which many surveys In dlcate as Nixon country. But the vice president, ap- pearing on television Sunday, said private surveys, show he has better Uian a 50-50 chance to win in Ohio and he added: "You know we do not get these surveys to please ust We get Uiese voter surveys anc polls to give us some sense oi direction I believe the trends indicate wo are on the move and one of the sure things In politics that's vital and im- portant is what Is the trend as you move to Election Day. Am I believe the trend Is absolutely Incur favor." Humphrey, in remarks pre- pared for a rally In this tire- making center, turned his fire once again on Nixon's assertion that the Johnson and Kennedy administrations had permitted a security gap which Nixon would correct as president, Humphrey charged that his Republican opponent Is playing fast and loose with our national security." Humphrey accused Nixon of "urging a mad escalation of the nuclear arms race. And he is advocating an increasing mili- tarization of American life and American foreign policy." Humphrey said that the fig- ures his opponent has used on American arms strength are "phony and his facts are wrong." Humphi ey said that the "real Nixon" is emerging In these final days of the campaign and he declared: "So batten down the hatches -for the most desperate and and 200 to 300 extremists broke way for a flying wedge attack in the big white building. f As thick cordons of police arred their way, the red-hel- meted Maoists and anarchists threw firecrackers at mounted xrtice waiting In reserve. Some mrled banner poles as spears. Then they charged the police ines wlUi iron pipes. The police slowly pushed and shoved the militants back, pen- ning them into the southwest corner of the square and stop- ping any attempt to break out. Sradually the young demonstra- tors ran out of steam and drift- ed away. London was quiet again by 9 p.m. Casualty figures were low. Five policemen and about 40 demonstrators received medical treatment, although hundreds more had minor cuts and bruises. Thirty-nine 1. demonstrators were for carrying chains, sticks and bottles as "of- fensive weapons" and for a brief burst of window-smashing and bottle-throwing in the exclu- sive Mayfair district around the embassy as the crowd broke up. Defending the British tradi- ion of peaceful protest, Home Secretary James Callaghan had resisted strong pressure to ban the demonstration, Later Callaghan issued a statement: "This was a demon- stration of British good sense. Self-control was shown by the mass of demonstrators, and by the police who remained com- pletely calm under the provoca- tion of disorderly charging. I doubt this sort of demonstration could have taken place as peacefully In any other part of the world." The demonstration had been billed by Uie organizers as a "day of revolution." Militant circles had buzzed wiUi rumors that government buildings, banks, the stock exchange and conservative newspapers would be stormed and occupied. None was.
