After the Albert Weisbord speeches, striking workers paraded through the community. According to one report, it was one of the biggest demonstrations of the strike. Approximately 350 members of the union paraded throughout the Loray section. They marched for almost an hour, singing and cheering at intervals. The most significant event of the day was an announcement by local officials that they would begin enlisting the support of special deputies to assist in maintaining order.
