The report devoted a consider-

to the idea of decentralizing the
administration of the university's
ten campuses-an idea implement-

that each campus be the equiva-

much local autonomy.

government, political activity and
off-campus speakers. They also
give the chancellors increased gov-
ernmental authority.
Prohibition'
The new regulation on student
freedom of activity-the issue that
was the main cause of the fall pro-
tests-prohibits the student from
"conduct which significantly in-
tereferes with university teaching,
research, administration, and the
university's subsidiary responsibil-
ities," or which endangers the
safety of the university commun-
ity or of campus visitors for uni-
versity-related events.
A university spokesman said the
language was. intentionally vague
so that the chancellors could in-
terpret the rules in keeping with
the needs of each campus. Previ-
ous rules were far more explicitly
restrictive 'on student political
freedom, for example in one case
prohibiting all political activity
which had ramifications off-cam-
pus.
Protestors complained that such
restrictions forced students to be-
come "second-class citizens" in or-
der to get a diploma.
The new regulations stemmed
from the recommendations of the
Byrne report, which was done at
the request of the Regents. It was
the result of an extensive investi-
gation of the Berkeley situation
and of the events leading to it and
the institution's h'andling of the
protests.
Highest
Highest on the list of the re-
port's recommendations were those
eeking to provide a system' cap-
able of dealing with administra-
tive and governmental problems of
the gigantic, geographically scat-
tered university, which now num-
bers over 70,000 students, more
than 27,000 of whom are located

report's release, that most mem-
bers would not "take the report
very seriously."
However, the Regents finally ap-
proved many of its ideas-em-
bodied in the new regulations-
after a short power fight in which
moderate members outvoted a
conservative bloc.
Topic
A principal topic of the Byrne
report and a concern of the reg-
ents over the last year-the Free
Speech Movement-dissolved early
this summer, but was immediately
replaced by an organization called
the Free Students Union.
The new Free Students Union
has taken as its aim, a more
permanent and stable Berkeley
student movement-a movement
which can eventually act as a col-
lective bargaining unit for the stu-
dents.
