Throughout the remaining days of April, members of the AHFG sat down with administrators, members of the Majority Coalition and the strikers themselves in an attempt to end the standoff. They met with little success. By April 28, the AHFG put forward a set of conditions that many referred to as "The Bitter Pill Resolutions." Drafted by five members of the AHFG steering committee - Immanuel Wallerstein, Daniel Bell, David Rothman, Robert Fogelson, and Allan Silver - these resolutions included: calling upon the students to vacate the buildings in exchange for Columbia withdrawing from IDA; the cancellation of the gym construction; the imposition of tripartite disciplinary procedures; and the provision for collective and uniform disciplinary action, intended to preclude serious reprisals against protest leaders. Both the administration and the striking students rejected the AHFG’s Bitter Pill Resolutions.
