Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

By fall 1965, an additional 800 male students were enrolled at FJC to escape the military draft. Initially, these students were labeled unpatriotic, and there was anger that the “draft dodgers” were adding to an already crowded campus, taking classes and parking spaces needed for others. The 1966 Torch included a one-act limerick (“The Draft of Kraft”) which featured a draft dodger with a 2S card in various locations around campus accompanied by a series of ditties: “A wandering young man named Kraft/Was deathly afraid of the draft/’It’s quite simple,’ he said/I’ll just go to JC/And my board will be driven quite daft.’”
