It was a smaller than usual

youth, sitting in the evening shade
under a tree while a few hun-

men on motor scooters drove in
circles around the slowly swell-
ing throng.
"Anybody got any acid?" ask-
ed a long-haired youth, his gaze
wandering through the crowd.
The only acid he got was in the
looks of his companions, few of
whom seemed ready to defy the

a policeman.
"Yet." responded the officer.

"You'd better not try it," re-

"Don't be so sure cop," re-

"That don't mean shit,"
scowled the policeman.
"Profanity in the park, arrest
him," gleefully shouted the youth,
moving away.

Radical mum before jury

(Continued from page 1)
federal judge quash the sub-
poenas after a morning series of
31 questions directed at Taube,
which he claimed were based on
illegal electronic surveillance.
Federal District Court Judge
Cornelia Kennedy reiterated her
ruling of last week that the grand
jury could- proceed, denying
Weinglass' request that she order
the government to confirm or
deny the existence of wiretaps,
and if necessary reveal the con-
tent of the wiretaps to the court.
During the brief lunchtime re-
cess, the anti-war activists, who
termed themselves the "Psyche-
delic Scapegoat 6," held a rally
and rock concert in Kennedy
Square, at which they made
speeches attacking the consti-
tutionality of the grand jury in-

Upon returning to the grand
jury hearing, the activists cre-
ated a carnival-like atmosphere
which persisted throughout much
of the afternoon.
When a General Services Ad-
ministration policeman, standing
watch over the six and their sup-
porters, forbade the playing of
harmonicas and the game of
penny - tossing, radical Colin
Neiberger, 20, of Boston asked,
"didn't you ever toss pennies
when you were young?"
"Yes," replied the policeman.
"Well, we're young," Neiberger
The other activists subpoenaed
to testify before the grand jury
have indicated, like Taube, that
they will refuse to answer ques-
tions beyond their name and ad-
dress, even though they run the
risk of being cited for contempt
and jailed.
The six - Taube, Neiberger,
Ken Kelley, 20, of Detroit; Larry
Canada, 29, of Bloomington, In-
diana; his ex-wife Katherine
Noyes, 25, also of Bloomington;
and Charles Tolan, 20, of Chapel
Hill, North Carolina - were or-
dered late yesterday afternoon to
return this morning to the grand
jury hearing.
Several of the activists wore
Vietcong flags and Avery Canada,
the blond two-year old daughter
of two of the activists, was clad
in a white t-shirt upon which was
written the slogan "subpoena me
