Description: A huge crowd of students rally on the UC Brkeley campus in support of Univeristy president Robert Sproul. Many of them carry signs, some of which read, "We howl for Sproul," "Hey Stay," "RGS," and "Sproul is all right." There are many, many more men than women in the crowd. It is nighttime. Photo caption reads: This is the throng of students to which President Robert Gordon Sproul of the University of California announced his decision to remain as head of the univeristy and reject a proferred bank persidency at a far higher salary. Placards and yells told the students' hope that Sproul would decide as he did."
