"I wish I would have been at the first he said. "I was born too late. I loaded up my '66 Bonneville and headed out." "It wasn't peace and love your neighbor like we heard the first one was. But they did get Mr. Heald said, adding that he joined a roll in the mud. The others said they didn't par- ticipate. Walking was tricky, and sloppy enough for them. G.T.

"They weren't allowed because police feared they would be used as he said. Kirk Zigler, 20, of Middletown, described the scene when they left the site early Monday: "They (police and organizers) had glazed looks on their faces. I know they're glad it's he said. Mr. Zigler said he was looking forward to a shower. "I haven't had a shower in five days, but I did brush my teeth he laughed. Scott Keplinger, 26, of Bethesda, said among his favorite groups were Red Hot Chili Peppers and Aerosmith. "Bob Dylan was good, too, even though we had to wait to hear him." The men agreed that they'd go again tomorrow if a third Woodstock was organized. Suspect arrested in priest's abduction ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) An Anne Arundel County woman told police her estranged boyfriend kid- napped, raped and tried to choke her in a 10-hour ordeal during which he admitted he had earlier kidnapped a priest and receptionist, police said today. Derrick Sellman, 25, was charged Monday in both kidnappings, said county police spokesman Sgt. Bob Johnson. He was being held this morning in the Western District station in Odenton on charges of first- degree rape, kidnapping, assault with intent to murder and armed robbery. The woman told police Sellman forced his way into her car in An- napolis about a.m. Monday as she was taking their 18-month-old child to day care. After forcing her to drive to Laurel, Mr. Sellman allegedly had the woman drive to his uncle's home on Fowler's Drive in Annapolis, where he raped and attempted to choke her, Sgt. Johnson said. He stopped when the baby started crying, Sgt. Johnson said.
