student protest

Indexer Notes

A rare reference to student protests of the era, as Archie and Fred watch a news report from a University campus where students are shouting "Kill the fuzz" and "burn, pig, burn!" Unlike the few other Archie stories where this was mentioned, Archie here expresses approval of the protests: "Demonstrations turn me on!"
