Radicals in the Heartland

The Committee to End the War in Vietnam (CEWV) formed, antiwar “gripe-ins” began in the Union, protesters demonstrated against military recruiting stations, and freshman activist Keven Roth wrote about it all in a letter home. The DRU brought a draft resister to speak in the Red Herring, SDS did the same with a national organizer, and the student senate invited antiwar activist Staughton Lynd to speak in the Union. SDS announced they were planning a protest, specifics to be determined, against the presence of the Dow Chemical Company, scheduled to visit campus in October.
