IiAWBRNCB, Mom., Oct. 12. Between
5.000 find 30,000 men, women nnd children
tramped through tho Ann bedecked
Htreots of Lawrence to-day to protest
acnliiPt tho "NoOodl no mosterl" motto
of tho Industrial Workers of tho World.
Probably lno.noo other persons, Includ
ing many thousands from tho neighbor

spectacle. Only ono emblem was in

in addition to each marcher bearing nt

These wero answered by the cheers of
tho crowds that lined tho htreets and i
sldowalks and crowded every building '
along tho lino of march. i
It was a dull, gray day and the streets I
wero mildriv. hilt thla timrlrt nn tftrrntH 1
to the puraders nor to tho crowds every

the colebration, and only about 500 of the
I. W. W attended tho 'Competition
Picnic," arranged by that organization
and held at Pleasant Valley, although
20,000 wero expected.
Tho I. W.W. got out n big circular early
in the day, headed "Ood and Country,"
and explaining why this phrase is used
to attack tho I. W. W. It says:
The nmters and upholders of the masters
condemn the I. W. W. in the nnmo of Ood
and country. Theso questions have no
benrlni: on the I. W. W We hnve never

Practically all clas ses in tho commu- j

ties. There wero operatives from tho i

to give distinction to any particular race
and practically all the religious denomi
