    PRESIDENT JOHNSON WILL WATCH THE INAUGURAL PARADE IN WASHINGTON ON JANUARY 20 FROM A SPECIALLY BUILT BULLET-PROOF STAND. ALREADY CARPENTERS ARE BUSY CONSTRUCTING THE STAND, WHICH HAS ARMOUR PLATE ON THE BOTTOM SECTION AND AT THE SIDES. FOR SECURITY REASONS THE BOX WILL ALSO HAVE BULLET-PROOF GLASS AT THE FRONT, SIDES AND REAR.

    SECRET SERVICE SPOKESMEN SAID THE REASONS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION WERE OBVIOUS. THEY ADDED THAT THEY HOPED TO PREVENT A REPETITION OF THE INCIDENT WHICH OCCURRED DURING PRESIDENT EISENHOWER'S INAUGURAL PARADE. AT THAT TIME A COWBOY RIDING IN THE PARADE ACTUALLY CAUGHT THE PRESIDENT WITH A LARIAT.
