THIS DAY IN DAILY HISTORY

Sept. 16, 1971

A Central Student Judiciary trial began to inquire into the
actions of members of the activist group Students for a Democratic
Society.

Allegedly, SDS members “locked-in” a group of DuPont
recruiters in the West Engineering Building by crowding the hallway
and preventing the recruiter from reaching his interviews.
University Security Officer Russell Downing reported that “75
to 100 came in one group and completely filled the
corridor.”

The group faced a four month suspension from student government
and a $250 fine for their actions.
