The steamy 80-degree-phis weatlier brought out thousands and they filled eveay nook and cranny along 13th SI. N1. and downtown streets. The young settled down on (lie top of business buildings; the pre- pared brought out lawn chairs and munched on hot (fogs and orange drinks sold out on the street by a department store.

The picketcrs greeted with silcnee and then hursts of applause although it was diffi- cult to tell who the crowd was clapping for; the six girls on the float or the demonstrators. Another first was Hie pre- sence of three provincial candi- dntcs in the running for the two ridings.
