A small army of police, national guardsmen and police reservists had little to do because--up to noon at least -- tho massive gathering was one of the most orderly on record. The police estimated the turnout at 110,000 persons at noon. And still more were on ihe way. Deputy Police Chief Howard Covell reported in early afternoon there were many buses still en 1 route through distant avenues in j northwest Washington. | Advance crowd estimates had ningcd as high as 250.000. The inarch of less than a mile, from the monument to the Lincoln Memorial, actually got under way in impromptu fashion nearly half a hour before thc 11:30 scheduled time. Inny Placards Some of the placards read:. "Before we'll be d slave, /e'll be buried in our grave." "Segregation disunites the United States." "No U.S. douah to help Jim Crow."
