No one is safe in this county. It's just that simple....no one
is safe. (Departs.)
PRODUCTION NOTE: While the lights are down, the enlisted Guardsman
steps to curtain edge. He is at parade rest, rifle extended to
the front. Allison enters. She is a tall, beautiful brunette,
minus makeup and brassiere, wearing blue jean bell bottoms. She
places a blossom stem stemstemin the barrel of his rifle. He doesn't respond.
The reporter is not on stage.
Flowers are better than bullets. (She goes to dock.)
(The Reporter enters carrying a picket sign with the peace symbol.
He crosses the stage and leans the sign against anything handy.)
Two facts. Evidence. This girl did walk up to a Guardsman and she
did place a flower stem in the barrel of his rifle. This girl also
carried this sign .... many times.
I am one of the accusers. My name was Allison Krause. I do confess
to having strong feelings about the war in Vietnam. I confess to
being a part of the organized opposition to that war.
You in the fifth row there....if you could ask this witness about
her whereabouts last October....
