The dual flight of Soyuz 10 and the unmanned space station Salute appears to be a major Soviet step toward a manned space station. The first scheduled U.S. space station is two years away and three years behind schedule. Moscow sources had hinted earlier that a second manned ship might go up in connection with the Salute-Soyuz 10 flight. The Soviet agency Tass said the three cosmonauts were well and the spacecraft had com- Protest .

The demonstration, held in front of wire barricade shutting off the crowd from the Capitol steps, began about 12:30 p.m. EST, an hour and a half after the marching began, and ran on until about 5:30. Despite the conflicting estimates of its size, the crowd to most observers of such events here easily revaled and possibly surpassed the previous record for a protest rally, generally granted to the Nov. 15, 1969 New Mobilization demonstration. The "New Mobe" crowd was first pegged by the government at about 300,000. but later was revised to about 320,000. pleted Its "program of studies. " Soyuz 10 landed about 80 miles from the town of Kara- ganda in Kazakhstan at 2:40 a.m. Sunday Moscow time— 6:40 p.m. Saturday EST, Tass said. Soyuz 10 pursued Salute for more than 41 hours before docking with It at 4:47 a.m. Saturday Moscow time—8:47 p.m. Friday EST-after the cosmonauts had.taken a nap, Tass said. Soviet television said the Soyuz 10 made a "rigid mechanical docking" with the Salute. Soyuz, which means union in Russian, drifted away after S/ 2 hours, Tass said. The news agency said studies "checkingthe efficiency of perfected systems for the mutual search, long distance approach, berthing, docking and separa- "Laborfor Peace," "Teachers for Peace," "FederalEmployes for Peace." The more-mioitant elements which have marked and sometimes even dominated past demonstrations clearly were a small minority Saturday. These have promised another demonstration next Saturday and a series of civil disobedience Incidents aimed at disrupting the city's and the government's normal functions.

Dr. Boris Ryabov, professor at the Moscow Aviation In* stitute, claimed a first for the Soviet Union, reaffirming Russia's "mastery of cosmic space." He said it was the first time a manned craft and unmanned vehicle controlled from the ground had maneuvered independently and linked up in outer space. This, he said, was the "principal novelty of the experiment." "In previous flights of cosmic ships both approaching and docking were carried out, but it was docking and approaching of piloted cosmic ships," Rya» bov added. Speaking on a television broadcast which was beamed tc Eastern Europe as well as the Soviet Union, Ryabov outlined the mission of the Soyuz-Salute flight. He said it Included the stabilization of the manned ship and the space station, "the mutual linking of two massive bodies, one of which is under a regime of automatic control," the sever ing of the link and further approaches and docking. The experiment is aimed at completing a high Soviet space priority construction of the world's first orbital space laboratory. The cosmonauts aboard Soyuz 10 had a 0/2 -hour nap before the hookup, which took place somewhere along the sweeping elliptical path which carried the two craft to an orbital apogee 137.9 miles from earth and brought them to within 124.2 miles of the planet at their lowest point. Salute was launched on Monday; Soyuz rocketed off the ground at the Baikonur cosmo- drome Friday morning.

I feel we've been successful. "I am particularly pleased with Margaret and feel she adds much to our sound," Lunkley said. The choir, which won world-wide acclaim on a European tour more than a decade ago, has been invited to perform in the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin as a part of the tour.

Ceylon (AP) Hundreds of bodies of rebels, many of "Ihem headless, are drifting down rivers from the jungles to the sea In a grisly procession demonstrating the savagery of Ceylon's cl«tt war. Security forces fighting nationwide insurrection by youthful Maoist insurgents have taken to burning the bodies in huge funeral pyres away from centers of population. But the muddy waters ana swamps of this tropical island. Few residents of Colombo are unaware of the river-borne cas- ualties although local newspapers are forbidden by government censors to publish any descriptions. Buses runningfrom the international airport to the capital regularly pause by river banks while drivers point out drifting bodies to passengers. Ceylon's military command says 450 rebels are positively known dead by body count In nearly three weeks of fighting but this estimate is regarded as massively understated, since the youthful rebels always try to carry off corpses of their comrades.

While the antiwar message was the same as that preached in at least one mass march in Washington each year since 1965, the audience was probably the most Inclusive of all. A matron who said she had marched for peace since she protested the Spanish Civil War In 1938, viewed a "diversity here that didn't used to exist." "The American People know, even If their President does not," said Sen. Vance Hartke, > °•said from the CapitolSteps, "that we have stayed too long in Vietnam and bled too much and committed too many horrors, and the time to get out is now." The faces were mostly young. They smiled, laughed or chanted peace slogans. They sweated in the 70-degree sun. But there were all ages. too. Mothers pushlngbaby strollers. Middle-aged couples holding hands. A businessman marched in a blue cap that said he was a former commander of a New England American Legion post. On the grimmer side, some veterans who had been lobby- Ing against the war all week joined the larger throng. Some hobbled on crutches and canes and kept the pace despite missing limbs. Tight-lipped servicemen and veterans, some with chests full of medals,, stopped the route. A Teamsters Union contingent from St. Louis was led by its international vice president, Harold Gibbons.

(AP) - The bodies of two copilots of an F111E supersonic fighter bomber were found Saturday a few hundred yards from the crashed wreckage of their plane, an Air Force spokesman said. The advanced swing-wing jet crashed while on a test flight Friday in the Mojave Desert near Death Valley National Monument. It was the 18th plane of the Fill series to crash. Officials said the two crew* men apparently tried to eject. The F111E eject mechanism provides for an entire capsule containing the pilots to separate from the jet and parachute to the ground. The spokesman said the capsule separated, but the parachute failed to open. The dead officers were Maj. James W. Hurt, 34, the aircraft commander, formerly of In- dianapolis, and Maj. Robert J. Furman, 31, originally of New York City. There was evidence the craft had caught fire either before or after the crash, the Air Force said. The $9-million twin-engined jet, built by General Dynamics Corp., was undergoing flight tests before delivery to the military. under the direction of Mrs. Ross E.
