Blame it on the weather, television or because it's
the second time, but Pope John Paul II's pilgrimage is
drawing smaller-than-anticipated crowds.
The pope, however, can take some consolation as
protests that were threatened for each of his stops have
For the fourth day in a row Sunday, the crowds
coming out to see the pope on his second tour of the
United States were smaller than organizers had hoped.
An estimated 300,000 people attended John Paul's
open-air Mass in San Antonio, Texas, the fourth stop
in his nine-city pilgrimage. That was the largest crowd
yet to see him so far this trip, but far fewer than the
half-million organizers had hoped for.
The papal tour has been bedeviled by the weather
since the start. Even in San Antonio, where skies were
clear Sunday, bad weather had left its mark last week
when a windstorm toppled two 21-story towers erected
as part of the altar for the Mass.
In Miami, for the first time on one of John Paul's
36 foreign trips, worshippers were sent home during a
Mass. This happened Friday when the Secret Service
low for Pope
advised that winds and lightning during a thunderstorm
posed a potential hazard to the people gathered in
Attendance at the Miami Mass was officially
estimated at 250,000, but the Miami Herald reported
Saturday that 150,000 was a more realistic figure,
based on analysis of aerial photos and detailed grids.
Later Friday, crowds were sparce along the pope's
route through Columbia, S.C., where city officials had
braced for 250,000 visitors.
City officials said Saturday that the totoal turnout
was about 1000,000, counting some 60,000 who
attended an ecumenical prayer service at the University
of South carolina stadium.
The bad weather kept up Saturday in New Orleans,
where a thunderstorm drenched 150,000 people
awaiting the pope's arrival to celebrate Mass.
Organizers had hoped as many as 277,000 would
turn out for the Mass at the University of New
Orleans, but Tom Finney, spokesman for the New
Orleans archdiocese, said church officials were not

- Oscar-winning Mervyn Le Roy,
who produced "The Wizard of Oz"
and directed scores of films including
"Mister Roberts," died of heart
failure Sunday, his manager said. He
Le Roy died in his sleep at his
Beverly Hills home, said his
business manager, Given Eaton. Le
Roy had Alzheimer's disease and had
been ill since Christmas with
respiratory problems, Eaton added.
"I would say he was one of
Hollywood's greats." said Eaton. Le
Roy won a best director Oscar in
1942 for the film "Random
Harvest," an honorary Oscar in 1945
for the short subject film, "The
House I Live In," starring Frank
Sinatra, and the Irving G. Thalberg
Memorial Award in 1975.
It was Le Roy who introduced
Ronald Reagan to Nancy Davis. He
was also the man who brought Lana
Turner to the attention of the Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer studios in 1938.
As Pope John Paul II delivers Mass in Tamiami Park in Miami, Fla., rain drenches the estimated crowd
of 240,000 people last Friday. The Pope, forced by the untimely storm to cut his services short, finished
with a blessing before leaving Miami for his next stop, Columbia, S.C,
