(Convention Hall) Security is to head off demonstrations by protesters.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Chicago, Illinois) 20 injured and 12 arrested in clashes with police last night. 500 march on police headquarters to protest arrest of new left leader, Tom Hayden; they carry Viet Cong flag. Hayden charged with disorderly conduct. Police moved in to enforce 11 p.m. curfew in Lincoln Park where protesters want to sleep. Police clear park and strike several reporters [Yippie Stewart ALBERT - says doesn't trust Republican or Democratic parties or American government Asking for United Nations observer to come here.] [US attorney Thomas FORAN - says police were mostly well-disciplined and restrained. 1 incident involving 4 police seemed unjustified; matter being studied. No club swinging, tear gas, mace, pushing or police vilification.] Marchers more serious. Many fear few revolutionaries will provoke more serious conflict.
