"The Last Straw!!!"

Produced by the W.E.B. DuBois Club of Queens College, a local chapter of a nationwide anti-war group, this flier brings attention to proposed budget cuts and their consequences at the college's School of General Studies. Attributing the slashed funding to the government's spending in the Vietnam War, the club's flier bemoans the impact that the cuts will have on the school's black and Puerto Rican populations. In response, the flier calls for, among other measures, an expansion of daytime classes, steps taken to improve racial equality on campus, student control of academic employment, and an end to required courses.
