A PLEASANT SATURDAY AFTERNOON. Chicago sometimes gets a decent spring day in March, which was the case last Saturday. The weather was favorable for a war protest; it was also favorable for graduation day at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center. Sailors, family members, and protesters mingled at the North Western Station and in the shopping districts. At least in the part of Chicago that I observed, I saw none of the in-your-face attitude some commentators observed elsewhere.
