The Minnesota Daily reports on a large student protest organized to pressure the University administration into making a declaration on student rights and housing. President Coffey refused to make a statement on the closing of the International House when white students moved into a segregated house exclusively for African American men, or “the Negro problem”, despite a petition with over 1,000 student signatures calling for his reversal of longstanding discrimination policies on campus.
