Students reading chalk writing

 Close up of writing  

Throughout the day, Sept. 14, students and faculty stopped to read Section 2 (c) of the War Powers Act of 1973, which someone had written in chalk on the walkway near Sprau Tower. The final 18 words were highlighted in a different color of chalk.

"The constitutional powers of the President as Commander-in-Chief to introduce United States Armed Forces into hostilities, or into situations where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances, are exercised only pursuant to a declaration of war, specific statutory authorization, or a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces."
