    IN PRAGUE LAST NIGHT (THURSDAY), THOUSANDS OF CZECHOSLOVAKIANS FILLED CITY STREETS TO SHOW THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE RESULTS OF THE CIERNA TALKS BUT ALSO TO SHOW THEIR CONCERN OVER LACK OF INFORMATION.

    MANY OF THEM CARRIED BANNERS, AND DEMANDED THE PARTICIPATION OF RUMANIA AND YUGOSLAVIA IN THE BRATISLAVA TALKS. EARLIER IN THE DAY, SEVERAL HUNDRED HAD MARCHED ON PRAGUE RADIO DEMANDING THAT CZECH LEADERS BE GIVEN TIME TO EXPLAIN THE CIERNA TALKS.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS GATHERED IN CITY SQUARES AND CHANTED AND CLAPPED. POLICE WERE NOT IN EVIDENCE BUT IN GENERAL THE RALLY WAS PEACEFUL. THE CROWDS STOOD AND CHEERED OUTSIDE A PRAGUE HOTEL UNTIL A MEMBER OF THE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN PRESIDIUM, MR. SMIRNOVSKY, CAME TO THE BALCONY AND ADDRESSED THEM.
