Depiction: Three girls sit in the sun directly in front of armed National Guardsmen who stand almost three rows deep. The men hold bayonetted rifles and wear gas masks. The girls each wear a black armband and sit crosslegged. The middle girl has a balloon tied to one wrist. Photo is taken from behind the girl's back. Photo caption reads: National Guardsmen stand on the Univeristy of California faced by seated demonstrators with black arm bands and some held balloons in silent vigil for a man fatally wounded in Thursday's rioting over People's Park.
