Document Description

Cilley, a student in his sophomore year, conveyed his appreciation for Sitterson's response to the BSM "for having preserved Carolina's integrity." Reflecting on the quiet majority of students who shared in his appreciation, Cilley wrote, "Apathy may be an old and honorable institution at UNC, but this is no Columbia, for a handful of loudmouths to hold at bay with impunity."
