The Justice Department said last night it will allow Vietnam protestors only a "small symbolic parade" from the Capitol to the White House on November 15 because of a possible outbreak of violence.
The department said it has "reliable reports" that a minority "may be planning to foment violence" during the planned massive march of an expected 500.000.
However, the department said it would grant the permit for the 40-hour "March Against Death" planned to start late November 13 and end just before the mass march. The plan is for about 50,000 to march in a file of twos from Arlington National Cemelery, past the White House to the Capitol.
The New Mobilization Committee, the group planning the protest, said the Justice Department had refused to grant permits for the march up Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House.
