"What Really Happened?"
Their initial march on May 29, in protest of an ROTC review scheduled on campus at Lewisohn Stadium, escalated with the arrival of police officers who had been called in by City College (CCNY) President Frederick B. Robinson. By protest's end, several left-leaning student organizations and publications were shut down, and Robinson was accused of attacking students with his umbrella. Much to the activists' chagrin, the circumstances surrounding Robinson's actions were revised by newspapers in the days following the demonstration.
