Tight security will accompany this weekend's campus visits by Chinese President Jiang Zemin and U.S. Vice President Al Gore '69.

Annenberg Dining Hall will close and will not serve breakfast to first-years and their parents Saturday morning as part of the security preparations for Jiang's 11 a.m. speech in Sanders Theatre, the University announced Wednesday.

And entrance to Harvard Yard all day Saturday will require University identification.

The Chinese President's motorcade is expected to arrive at Harvard between 10:00 and 10:30 Saturday morning, according to published reports of his itinerary.

And Gore will begin a campus visit Friday afternoon with a 3 p.m. speech at the John F. Kennedy School of Government's Arco Forum.

To top it all off, more than a thousand first-year parents, including Gore, are expected to flood Harvard Yard for first-year parents' weekend.
