    THE RUSSIAN COSMONAUTS PAVEL BELYAYEV AND ALEXEI LEONOV, ENDING A TEN-DAY VISIT TO EAST BERLIN, CROSSED TO THE WESTERN FRENCH SECTOR YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AS THE GUESTS OF THE COMMUNIST-SPONSORED GERMAN-SOVIET FRIENDSHIP ASSOCIATION AND GAVE A LECTURE ON THEIR SPACEFLIGHT.

    WHEN THEY LEFT THE LECTURE HALL, IN A CINEMA AT WEDDING, A SMALL GROUP OF DEMONSTRATORS BOOED THEM, THREW PAINT AT THE WIDESCREEN OF THE SPACEMEN'S CAR, AND WRECKED AN EAST GERMAN CAR. AFTER A TUSSLE, WEST GERMAN POLICE BROKE UP THE DEMONSTRATORS.

    THE LECTURE WAS GIVEN A HALF-TIME (ONE KILOMETRE) FROM THE BERLIN IN WALL. THE SPACEMEN CROSSED THE FRONTIERS AT CHECKPOINT CHARLIE AND WERE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ESCORT OF FRENCH MILITARY POLICE.
