            Brooklyn College students will return in time for their fourth hour classes. According to statements made at the Council meeting, this demonstration is not an isolated movement since colleges all over the United States have decided that the week beginning April 6 will be devoted to organired, orderly activities directed against The motion for Council support of the movement was opposed by only one dissenting vote, by Phoebe Dare, Council Representative of the upper senior class.

            Selma Mushkin, chairman of Junior-Freshman Committee, proposed that a committee, to consist of two members from each of the eight classes, one a Council member and one a non-Council member, be formed to coordinate the general "walk out." Sylvia Wence, representative for the lower junior class, was unanimously chosen to head this committee.
