massed in front of the Lincoln Memorial Wednesday that their demonstration was no more than a beginning Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content said the Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr will have a rude awakening if the na tion returns to business as usual The estimate of the size of the audience came from Police Chief Robert V Murray He de scribed it as the largest crowd of participants in any Washing ton event in his memory and possibly the greatest number taking active part in an event in the capitals history Demonstrators and their leaders made it clear that one sign of progress in their view would be congressional approval of Presi dent Kennedys civil rights bill Biit there was no evidence that the demonstration would move the Congress into any faster consid eration of the bill Kennedy like the civil rights leaders also talked in terms of a beginning He met with King and the other civil rights leaders after the demonstration and said We
