Subject: FSM on other campuses
Martin Schaaf, replying via my partner's account cause mine is F***ed up...

I was in Edna McGuire Junior High school (Mill Valley) at the time. We had
a "closed" campus. Two girls, as a lark, spread the rumor that there was
going to be a walk-out at lunch time. Several hundred kids walked off
campus onto the little league field next door. The administration freaked out!
As they herded the kids back onto campus, I stood just inside the gate
saying, "Donations to the Free Speech Movement." The principal ordered me
to "get back on campus" (!!!) and threatened to suspend me.
I don't thing the girls would have had the idea, nor would it have been so
successful if the FSM hadn't been in the news at the time.
