Students feel apathy has finally ended. "DT tells it all. The front page of the Daily Trojan for May 7, 1970 reflected what probably was the true peak of student unrest in USC. Protesting both President Nixon's Cambodia involvement and the killing of four students at Kent State University in Ohio, USC students organized a strike which led to modifying University program for four days. Joined in many cases by faculty members, the students turned outpourings of their discontent into duologue during teach-ins, rallies, and parades. The administration supported the movement and ruled no one would be penalized for joining the strike which became "The Days of Concern" -- The Trojan gallery, p. 209
