President Henry’s office offered to meet with two student leaders. A crowd of six hundred on the quad voted down the offer, demanding a public group meeting. Henry declined, also stating he would not offer an opinion on the Clabaugh Act. Millet invited twenty student leaders to meet, suggesting that Henry, too, would be willing to meet with them. At a noon rally the crowd voted to turn down the Henry meeting, but later in the week at a follow-on rally more moderate views predominated and the crowd voted to accept Henry’s offer. Letters poured in to administrators.
