Fitzhug-h pointed out in his letter that thousands attended Parents Day activities. Thomas C. Fitzhug-h III says it shows “the other side of the coin” in the current series of campus disturbances. The junior g-eophysics major used the recent Parents’ Week end program as an example of the A&M students’ expression of feelings. His letter said, in part: “Sunday afternoon (May 10) there was a demonstration on our campus which probably escaped the attention of your office.

William C. Westmoreland, Army chief of staff, serving as commissioning speaker and re viewing officer. “It will indeed be interesting to see if this ‘demonstration’ will pass as unnoticed as those in the past. “If it does , it will not alter the ideas and beliefs of the par ticipants. They do not thrive on publicity and their faith and sin cerity will remain constant in even the most difficult of situa tions. “Nonetheless, it would be re freshing if such an event were to be in the spotlight for once. .
