"Given a light ed beach, most of them will be satisfied." Dr. Granville C. Fisher, psychology professor at the University of Miami, entertained 40 of the visiting collegians in his home and he sees no mystery in their longing for the beach—or their in clination to rebel against police restrictions. "Roughing it on the beach un der the moon and the palm trees is a satisfying thing," he said "They don't mean to raise hell," he added. "The demonstra tions were just their declaration of independence." Mayor Edward H. Johns agrees that "I don't think we can crit icize the kids. A lot of people for get they were young once."
