    IN MUNICH TODAY (FRIDAY) THERE WERE CLASHES BETWEEN STUDENTS AND SUPPORTERS OF THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY (NPD), CITY AUTHORITIES BANNED THE NPD FROM MEETING IN A CIRCUS ARENA AND THE CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS HELD THEIR FINAL RALLY BEFORE THE BAVARIAN STATE ELECTIONS OF SUNDAY.

    THE CLASHES FOLLOWED A DECISION BY A MUNICH COURT TO ORDER A CIRCUS COMPANY TO OPEN ITS ARENA FOR AN NPD MEETING AND A DECISION IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS BY CITY AUTHORITIES TO BAN THE MEETING. AFTER THIS RULING, THE PARTY TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY FOR A HEARING AT THE ADMINISTRATIVE COURT.

    EARLIER TODAY, ABOUT 2,000 STUDENTS CAUSED TRAFFIC CHAOS BY MARCHING THROUGH THE CITY CENTRE IN PROTEST AGAINST THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATS. THEY BORE SLOGANS WHICH READ "WE WANT NO FOURTH REICH" AND "MUNICH SUFFERS NO NAZIS."
    ALSO IN MUNICH TODAY, THE CHRISTIAN SOCIAL UNION, THE BAVARIAN WING CHANCELLOR ERHARD'S CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATS, HELD ITS FINAL RALLY IN A CITY STADIUM.

    THE CSU LEADER IS HERR STRAUSS, THE FORMER MINISTER OF DEFENCE HIS BAVARIAN VOTES PLAYED AN IMPORTANT PART IN THE RECENT SELECTION OF DR. KIESINGER TO SUCCEED DR. ERHARD.

    HERR STRAUSS TOLD THE RALLY THAT PEOPLE MUST STOP RAKING THE FILES TO FIND AWKWARD FACTS IN THE PAST OF THEIR POLITICAL OPPONENTS. HE SAID THE DAY OF FORGIVENESS HAD COME.
