CELEBRITY - Comedian, civil rights activist, former write-in presidential candidate, anti-war protestor, vegetarian and natural living author - Dick Gregory gave Congress attendees a generous measure of his views in all these fields of endeavour, on Monday and Tuesday evenings of the 2nd week.

He is seen above and below. At right below, he is shown with Jay, presenting a check for $727 - the proceeds from famine-relief fund-raising activities during the Congress - to Brian Gunn-King of the IVU; the funds were then forwarded by IVU to Vegfam, the British Isles based vegetarian famine-relief and food development organization.
