    Background: PRESIDENT COSTA E SILVA OF BRAZIL AND THE VISITING PRESIDENT EDUARDO FREI OF CHILE REVIEWED SOME 30,000 ARMY, NAVY AND AIR FORCE SERVICEMEN AS THEY MARCHED PAST IN RIO DE JANEIRO ON SATURDAY AS PART OF BRAZIL'S INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS. BRAZIL RECEIVED INDEPENDENCE FROM PORTUGAL AS A MONARCHY IN 1822, AND BECAME A REPUBLIC IN 1889.

    TRAFFIC OF NON-MILITARY VEHICLES IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA OF RIO WAS SEALED OFF FROM THE PARADE ROUTE FROM THE TIME THE TWO PRESIDENTS ARRIVED AT ABOUT 9 A.M. STRICT SECURITY PRECAUTIONS WERE MADE FOLLOWING REPORTS THAT STUDENTS PLANNED TO STAGE "LIGHTNING MEETINGS" DURING THE PARADE IN SEVERAL PARTS OF THE CITY. SOME 1,500 SECURITY AGENTS WERE PLACED AT STRATEGIC POINTS.

    PRESIDENT FREI ARRIVED IN RIO BY AIR YESTERDAY WITH HIS WIFE AND A GROUP OF TOP CHILEAN OFFICIALS. HE'S BEEN HAVING MEETINGS IN BRASILIA WITH PRESIDENT COSTA E SILVA, WHO PRECEDED HIM TO RIO IN ANOTHER AIRCRAFT. THE MILITARY PARADE, REVIEWED BY BOTH PRESIDENTS FROM THE PRESIDENTIAL GRANDSTAND, IS THE TRADITIONAL HIGHLIGHT OF THE CELEBRATIONS.
