Overts' Snub College Riot Penalties


This article reports that no student participants in the demonstration against George Wallace had come forward to admit their involvement to the Undergraduate Council Judiciary Committee after 17 days of having the opportunity to do so. James E. Topinka ’68, chairman of the Judiciary Committee remarks that he doubted if any students would turn themselves in under risk of temporary suspension but hoped “the community... learned a lesson from the whole affair and that’s what’s important.”
