They could not, and so they march

school, many were deprived of at
tending a college of their choice,
and so they marched. After the
hard trial of struggling through col

any positions, whereas, they were
not permitted, and so they march
“When completing • hard day’s
work, many wanted to spend their
leisure in some places that they
were not allowed to enter, end so
they marched. For enjoyment, many
wanted to attend a opectol movie
to see a good picture but were not
given the privilege of going there,
and so they marched. For recrea
tion, some wanted to participate In
special events In sports, but they
were not permitted to sit in on the
games, and so they marched.
