Editorial "We the Students"
This editorial discusses a Letter to the Editor the had been published in the Collegian a week prior to this article. The letter was regarding an incident where an African American speaker was not permitted to eat with students in the dining hall after his lecture. This article states that the petition created to combat this incident was "met with enthusiastic response from the campus." This document states that students had gathered on their own to create these petitions to submit to the administration. This article also includes a copy of the petition. It is stated that the purpose of the petition was to protest the unkind and "unchristian" racial attitude in many aspects of the University and in particular the treatment of the speaker, Russell Jones. It also states that the policy that African American guests may not be invited to eat in the dining hall is "priggish and provincial". The students stated that the policy lowers the dignity of the University even though racial issue are "complex". Finally, the petition states the University should get rid of any "bigotry" and the outdated policies.
