Article "Recent Student Activism Cools As Puzzling Quiet Takes Hold"

Description

This article by staff writer, Jeb Hockman, discusses the decline of activism on campus against the Vietnam War as compared to the year before. Cook, the Head Resident of Lakeside Dormitory, attributed it to the lack of an organized leadership because of the ongoing search for a new university president. A sophomore Richmond College Senator Elwood Elliot stated that other incidents such as the Kent State killings occupied the students more than the Vietnam War.
