Radicals in the Heartland

University of Illinois Press

In a quiet end to a tumultuous year, Jim Kornibe was elected student-body president on a platform of increased student control. Daily Illini writer Linda Picone asked if the campus New Left had run out of steam with its year-long focus on teach-ins, gripe-ins, pray-ins, and educational days of protest, events high on edification but low on excitement. Some campus leaders shifted focus to CRJ, while others questioned the way forward, as student rebellions raged in France, China, and Mexico. Chancellor Peltason spoke with pride of the Project 500 program, likening it to university efforts for the handicapped.
