On Saturday evening, May 18, 1946, forty fired municipal workers who were war veterans demonstrated outside Eastman Theater, where an "I Am an American Day" program was being held. A riot alarm was called in when Labor Council president Anthony Capone and other demonstrators entered the theater to address the audience about the city firings. More than one hundred audience members left when Vice Mayor Van Lare denied Capone the floor.
