Radicals in the Heartland

At its next meeting the board reacted to mounting pressure from the legislature and the public, voting to rescind its DuBois Club decision and disallow university approval for the club. The trustees attributed the reversal to “new evidence” brought forward by Stanton Millet. Faculty expressed severe disappointment and voted to condemn the action as Clabaugh crowed in Springfield. Tension in SACA between student-government types and SDS members caused the beginnings of a split. The meeting with Henry and SACA leaders proceeded as planned and was surprisingly amicable; however, frustration was mounting in the new student movement.
