Jan Robertson:

Alright, Segregation and integration were not an everyday topic of conversation on the campus. Um, of course once application for Meredith was filed, in the weeks leading up to his arrival on the campus, it did become quite a topic of conversation, but I think a lot of students frankly did not consider um, whether they would be involved in integration. Um, there were some who felt very strongly and some of those students were involved in, in the rioting. I think probably the large majority of the students were not involved. There was a curiosity factor. Um, but again, it was not the hot topic of conversation. You talked, you heard much more talk about how the football team was doing than about that issue.
