began arresting any demonstrators who so much as touched the soldiers.

Sunday, 8:00 a.m. - The Aftermath:
Early Sunday morning, workmen began to clean up the beer cans,
food, shoes, shirts, pants, sweaters, placards, and of the rubble of a
riot. Other workmen white-washed the Pentagon walls, erasing the
obscenities and other riot stains. All around them, a few
determined demonstrators remained the rest of the day in an exhausted
cry for peace.
