Up until the time the Vigils began their selling campaign, the average student was neutral and indifferent toward Jerry and his refusal to participate in the fundraiser.  After the Vigils began their campaign, however, the attitude of the students became hostile and resentful, as evidenced in the roll-call confrontation started by Harold Darcy, who was ordinarily low-key and anonymous, just "a regular kid" (Chapter 30).
