University Officials



Roger W. Heyns, chancellor of
the University of California at
Berkeley, yesterday called for a
"new authoritarianism" on the
part of university administrators.
This "new authoritarianism
will be different from the old in
that it does not arise out of thej
divine right of kings tradition, but
reflects a mature decision on the
part of the university community
for its own self-interest," he said.
Speaking in Rackham lecture
,hall as part of the psychology de-
partment's Sesquicentennial cele-
bration, Heyns, vice-president for
academic affairs at the Univer-
sity until 1965 when he assumed
the Berkeley post, endorsed the
centralization of decision-making
with university administrations.
No One in Charge
The "frustration of the modern
university is that there is no one
in charge," Heyns continued. "We
must, with proper controls and
restraint identify decision-mak-
ing responsibility and authority."
In the decision-making process,
Man "optimum balance between
shared and individual decisions"
must be maintained, and this
balance changes with the external
threats and internal weaknesses
affecting, the university.
The modern university, accord-
ing to Heyns, "is caught between
increasing responsibility in the
public sphere and decreasing
financial support'" from state
legislatures. Another major threat
to the university is the advan-
cing alienation that has taken
place between the university com-
,nunity and the rest of the so-

channel that holds responsibility,;
universities can make better use
of faculty consultation and ad-
University administrators "must
be more than consensus seakers.
They must have the authority to,
go with the ideas," Heyns con-
Heyns requested that student
participation in the decision-
making process be re-examined.j
"Someone should decide the areas
in which students can decide, ad-
vise and be able to exert in-
fluence," Heyns said.
"The instruments of studentk
participation are in danger be-
cause basic agreement on goals
and purpose are not there. Stu-
dent participation is then just a!
competition for power."
Heyns feels that students arej
really concerned with influence
and therefore should not think
that an advisory capacity is "a
frivolous waste of time."

'inadequate Notice'
The University conceded the
major point of contention yester-
day of 171 tenants in married stu-
dent housing who withheld a
$10 rent hike from their Septem-
ber payments.
The 171 said the University
had not given them adequate
notice of the increase.
A letter from housing director
John Feldkamp received by ten-
ants yesterday said that "while
the University lease reserves the
right to raise rents at any time
the rent increases formerly ef-
fective Sept. 1, 1967 are now ef-
fective Oct. 1, 1967.
Penalties Waived
"Those of you have paid in
full the previously established
September rent will have your
accounts adjusted with a $10
credit. Late payment penalties in-
current pending resolution of this
matter will be waived upon writ-
ten authorization from this of-
fice," the letter continued.
The tenants who didn't include
the $10 hike in their September
payments claimed that because
they had to give the University
1 60-day notice before moving out.
the University should give them
60-day notice before increasing
the rent.
The rent hike was announced
on Aug. 1, 30 days before it was
to have taken effect.
r Shortly after announcement of
the increase, the Northwood
Tenants Association was formed
to protest the action.

Senator Eugene McCarthy (D-

support of the academic commun-

American policy on the war in
Vietnam during the upcoming
election year.
These three groups, he said, are
more deeply involved in the issues
today than at any time in the past
