Title

Article "Students Drop Reinstatement For Bob Cotten"

Description

The article discusses the proposal to reinstate Bob Cotten back after his suspension for one of his famous Cotten Pickin's article. The Student Body, even though being pushed by various members of the administration, denied the reinstatement of Bob Cotten. Cotten, through his very controversially named column was openly racist and if the administration was fighting to reinstate him, it speaks volumes about the white supremacy mentality at that point in time.
