AGREE TO RETURN
Accept Resolution by Parents
to End Revolt. Investiga
Clemson students who have been
in revolt the last two weeks will re
turn today and tomorrow if the res
elation adopted here yesterday at the
indignation meeting held by parents
prevails with the students.
The resolution favored by the
more than 50 parents, guardians or
representatives of students does not
admit "the full justice" of the reen
trance requirements as formulated
by the board of trustees, but the stu
dents are called upon to return to the
college and purge themselves of con
The disciplinary pill which the
boys must take in the oath of renew
ed allegiance to the college and
pledge of obedience? to the rules and
regulations is made more palative by
a softening clause of reservation put
in by the anxious parents. This
"It being distinctly understoon by
us that while we recommend the re
nunciation of a deliberate intent to
defy duly constituted authority, we
do not recommend nor do we under
stand that in so doing they are re
nouncing their purpose to protest
against what has been shown to be
The resolution also calls for a full
investigation at the April meeting of
the board of all grievances "which
may be filed. Also for a committee
to go to Clemson today to urge stu
dents to comply with the resolution
and reenter. Dr. J. S. Summers of St.
Matthews, who presided during thc
day, appointed D. W. Robinson, J. P.
Derham and George T. Bryant to
serve on the committee to meet with
the boys at Clemson tomorrow.
Because the majority of the mem
bers of the board have been named
for life came in for some criticism.
Senator Banks thought it an anomaly
that "the institution should be con
trolled by a dead man," referring to
the fact that when the college was
created a stipulation was that cer
tain members of the board of trus
tees should serve throughout their
lives. It was brought out that seven I
are life members and six elective.
This criticism of the fact that cer
tain members are named for life
found echo in a later talk by Dr.
Summers. The people were getting
tired of such a procedure and the pa
Tents would see that there is an im- j
provement at Clemson or "VWU see I
that Clemson is wiped out. We are
going to touch the life trustees and
touch them in such a tender spot
that they will rectify existing wrongs.
We are going to have a president the
boys can look up to r.nd respect," he
said. A capable leader would have
been able to prevent the recent up
Had Long Conference.
The conference yesterday began
at 1:30 o'clock in the afternoon and
continued until after 6 o'clock, when
the resolution was adopted unani
mously after an amendment proposed
by D. W. Robinson of Columbia to
omit the word "full," qualifying
justice, had been defeated by a vote
of 22 to 30. Just prior to the adop
tion of the resolution the dozen or
more Clemson students who were
present were asked if they would
comply with this recommendation or
quest, "which was not a command."
No student voted in the opposition.
The parents then having obtained
full consent of the boys to the reso
lution, supported it unanimously.
Dr. Summers will appointe a com
mittee in April. Dr. Riggs yesterday
sent a telegram requesting that such
a committee be appointed. The re
quest for the appointement of such a
committee was made through W. D.
Barnett of Columbia. trustee and
alumnus of Clemson. His suggestion
was hearitly approved, although it
was not known at the time that such
action had been asked by the head of
the college, who was subjected to
some sharp criticism during the day.
The resolution adopted yesterday
"The parents and guardians of the
students of Clemson college, in'vcon
vention assembled in the city of Co
lumbia the 19th day of March, 1920,
while not admitting the full justice
of the reentrance requirements, rec
commend as follows:
To Return to Stay.
"That the students return to and
Temain at the college and purge
themselves of contempt; it being dis
tinctly understood by us that while
we recommend the renunciation of a
deliberate intent to defy duly consti
tuted authorities that in so doing
they are renouncing their purpose
to protest against what have been
shown to be real grievances.
"That the authorities allow the co
operative committees of the senior,
junior sophomore and freshman
classes to formulate and file a list of
"That the board of trustees at
their next meeting investigate these
grievances and correct them as far
"That the student who shall file
any grievance, whether such griev
ance is proved or disproved, it shall
be held against him as an offense.
"We further recommend the ap
pointment of a committee to repre
sent this body at Clemson college on
the occasion of the reentrance of the
The following are the re-entrance
requirements as stipulated by the
board of trustees, in addition to a
signed statement renouncing a de
liberate intention of defying consti
tuted authority and again subscrib
ing to an oath to obey the rules and
regulations of the college:
Conditions To Be Met.
"The board will require of each in
dividual of the senior and junior
classes who signed the petition, or
more properly, ultimatum, heretofore
referred'to, to sign and file with the i
president of the college for the board
of trustees by 11:30 p. m., March 21,
unless excused by the president, a
written withdrawal of approval of
the last papagraph of the document
signed by them and filed with the
board of trustees. Such members of
these classes as have failed or refus
ed to file with the president of the
college for the board the statement
herein required in the time required
unless in the opinion of the president
unavoidably detained, shall be deem
ed to be in a state of insubordination
and shall be dropped from the rolls
of the college without the privilege
of reinstatement at any time in the
"And such of these classes who do
not return in accordance with the
terms of their present leave without
sufficient excuse, in the opinion of
the president of the college, shall be
adjudged deserters and dropped from
the rolls of the college as such.
"Such members of the freshman
and sophomore classes who do not re
turn by 11:30 p. m., March 21, 1920,
shall be adjudged to have violated
paragraph 325, cadet regulations,
ar.d their names shall be dropped
from the rolls of the college."
What was apparently most galling
to the students was the renunciation
of any attempt to defy the constitut
ed authorities. This precipitated con
siderable debate. H. R. Turner, presi
dent of the freshman class, and J.
Garvin, a senior, occasionally putting j
forward the sensitiveness of the boys
to signing the statement that would
thus be required. The students did
not act hastily, it was pointed out.
They were in open rebellion and to
sign a statement that they were not
defying the authorities would be ad
