A present Yale student sent a questionnaire to members of the class of 
1970 asking what it was like on campus during the height of the antiwar 
movement and the Black Panther Party demonstrations of May 1-3, 1970.

Although 
Whiteman is puzzled over the absence of a similar student response to 
Iraq

<<<<<>>>>>

no puzzle re. above, haven't kept up with figures for some years, but large 
% of college students attending part-time, working while going to school,
attending night classes, commuting to campus, attending community colleges
(with their 'impoverishment' of campus life), living in parents' home, and/or
parenting is norm today, school is not focal point of life for contemporary 
college/university students...

in contrast, student activists tend to live near campus and outside home of their 
parents, are generally full-time students without responsibilities of parenthood...
