witharmored riot police today as President Ford arrived in Japan and about half of them were arrested Another 2000 demonstrators shouted antiFord slogans The outbursts took place two miles from the airport where Ford landed for the briefest of welcomes and did not mar the ceremonies Ford then took a helicopter to downtown Tokyo for an overnight rest in heavily guarded palace After a 15hour flight from Washington across the Inter national Date Line the first American president to visit Japan scheduled a 17hour respite to rest up before calling on Emperor Hirohito Tuesday and opening talks with Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka To minimize the chance of interference by radical leftists opposed to the Presidents visit neither the emperor nor Tanaka went to the airport and Hie arrival ceremony there lasted only 11 Busloads of carefully screened Japanese waved American and Japanese flags and applauded as Ford left Air Force One and shook hands with US Ambassador James Hodgson
