I had just returned to my fraternity house after a KU basketball game. The lottery numbers were being announced on the radio. As the numbers were drawn the mood changed dramatically as those with low numbers realized their lives were immediately changed. Girlfriends were crying because their boyfriends might be leaving. Some people immediately talked about leaving for Canada. Others started to seek options in the National Guard. Those with high numbers expressed relief while those with numbers in the middle were in a state of flux as to what to do. Several did leave for Canada never to be seen again. It was an era of great unrest. The campus was in turmoil and a hotbed for protests.
