KAUFMAN Enquirer Religion Reporter ' The Divine Word district assembly at Riverfront Stadium is a family affair. - Although anyone walking through the assembled Jehovah's Winesses would think that most of them were youngsters from all the movement, "only:' half of them are under 21. 1 Some were still nursing, others were just old enough to be a bother, as their parents followed talks wd tried to keep microphones up right as youngsters milled around and tangled tape recorder cords. "If head counts by Witness attendants were accurate, that meant half the crowd of more than 24,000 was too young to vote when they arrived, (although the change in the voting age to 18 doesn't affect Witnesses whose beliefs keep them away from the polls.) The neat, clean-cut children and teen-agers were everywhere, emulating, their parents In study or repose,-or simply running around away from the seated crowds, to avoid disturbing the Bible study that brought .their . families, to Cincinnati for five days.
