Tom Hayden on the Stump

Goldman, Ivan
May 1980
National Review;5/2/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 9, p534
The article reports on the student recruitment initiated by activist Tom Hayden for his Students for Economic Development (SED) movement in California in 1980. The SED movement was designed as springboards for the senatorial campaign for Hayden in 1982. During his speech, Hayden slips deftly through his contention that doing away with nuclear plants is a way to conserve energy. No one in his audience wishes to tamper with his welcome message. Hayden made his usual campus-site pitch for increased student power in university administration.
