WAR WALKOUT

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

EXHORTING U.S. college and high school students to fight for peace and to damn international conflict, an estimated 1,000,000 undergraduates two weeks ago paraded on '700 college and 200 high school campuses in their fourth annual "Peace Strike." Generally peaceful was the strike on most campuses, with only scattered reports of violence. Not unusual were the jeers and jokes of skeptical collegians, and at Vassar College they held a "strike" against the "peace strike."

Reports from college campuses indicate that the Oxford Oath not "to support the government of the United States in any war it may conduct" was somewhat more popular than it was in previous years. Tied up with the peace strike were protests against dictatorships and enemies of academic freedom, and resolutions for the outlawing of military training.
