    Times have changed. When we at CCNY picketed in 1933 protesting the 
    president's invitation to the commanding general of the NY Corps Area 
    as featured speaker at the college's annual commemoration of its 
    founding, the president, in top hat and tails, was so outraged by the 
    perceived insult to his guest that he stopped their open limousine, 
    got out and attacked the 200 of us with his umbrella. Many were 
    expelled, including me.
