    M/S as crowds in the street wave at a car passing in a cavalcade. It stops at a building. A man in a wig gives speech. Webster, in uniform, stands on a small platform amid the massed crowd. The mayor presents the award or plaque. The crowds cheer and wave hands and hats. It looks like a sunny day. Webster poses, looking rather serious, with his mother.
