Brandt to join protest against US A-missiles

A West German campaign against new US nuclear missiles drew only scattered demonstrations Tuesday, but it received a boost from former Chancellor Willy Brandt, who said he would join the protests.

The peace movement announced that Brandt, chairman of the opposition Social Democrats, would speak at a rally Saturday climaxing the 10-day effort. The move all but seals the party's rejection of deployment, which it agreed to in 1979. Armed forces recruiting offices and arms manufacturers were the targets of Tuesday's demonstrations.
