In what the Reverend Carl McIntyre would have undoub-
tedly looked upon as the hand of fate, the rain started almost
concurrently with the first steps of the recent anti-war march
in Detroit, while the sun emerged only moments before the
explosion at Amchitka, thousands of miles away. There was
more substantial evidence, however, that the demonstrations
were not of just passing interest, that they reflected the diverg-
ing trends and difficulties in the peace movement today. The
participants were both older and younger, and along with the
labor leaders were the high school students, some experiencing
the exhilaration of taunting a policeman for the first time;
and there was an air of futility, for while protest leaders at
Kennedy Square urged an already angry crowd to continue
the fight, organizers at the Ambassador Bridge entreated the
seemingly passive gathering to avoid instances of violence. One
thing was clear amid the rain and cold; the conspicuous ab-
sence of the college students who had come en masse to dem-
onstrations in the past.
