   The festival had its fair share of busts and hassles, but it was not broken up by the police and despite the relatively small numbers , it gave those who attended some valuable experience in how to outsmart the police .This would of course have rankled and probably helped sow the seeds for the nasty confrontations that took place in 1974...........
