Description

The Cornell Daily Sun is an independent newspaper published by Cornell University students in Ithaca, New York. The newspaper was established in 1880 by William Ballard Hoyt to challenge the weekly Cornell Era. Of particular note in this issue is coverage of the arraignment of eight SDS members – Henry Mendell, Michael Goldberg, Jonathan Miller, Stephen Parsons, Charles “Chip” Marshall, Paul Kaye, Andrew Griggs and Jeffrey Dowd – who led a protest against ROTC on campus. SDS members issued three demands from the university: 1) End ROTC on campus, 2) drop charges against all ten students arrested in connection with the protest, and 3) grant a leave of absence to Rev. Daniel Berrigan, associate director of the Cornell University United Religious Work (CURW), if jailed. Another article focuses on continuing campus demonstrations nationwide, damages to Straight Hall after black student occupation, and an editorial on the pill.
