CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) _ At least five Oklahomans have joined a growing peace vigil outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas.

What started Saturday as a California woman's solo demonstration has swelled to encampment of at least 50 supporters.

Serena Blaiz of Oklahoma City says the crowd might number 100, but that it's hard to tell the peace activists from the media.

Melissa Rabe of Blanchard says she came to support Cindy Sheehan, the California mother whose son was killed in Iraq last year.

The Peace House of Oklahoma City says other Oklahomans at the vigil are Peggy Johnson of Lexington and the Reverend Kathy McCallie of Oklahoma City, whose son has orders to go to Iraq this fall.
