But thus it also was that, thanks to the weekend's preparations, and the leafleting and on-the-spot picketing, about one third of the senior class at Alexander Hamilton High School -- including a certain young man named Baron -- decided they didn't want to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, at least until they knew a lot more about the test and what might be done with their scores.

And thus it further was that the test scheduled for that morning was postponed.

The school principal told hustling young Heather Ames-Becker (who would soon get a long hoped-for date with a certain young lawyer) "We will re-schedule the ASVAB after our students have received a better understanding of the vital importance of this test to their careers here at Hamilton High as well as their careers in the larger world."
