Berkeley Report

4 Reaction raged on both sides yesterday after a University of
California regent-appointed committee published a study of the
Berkeley student disorders that turned around and criticized the
"It hardly deserves more consideration than a magazine article,"
one administrator said.
"It's a great report," Mario Savio, student leader of the uprising
at its peak last fall, countered.
"Everybody here is laughing. We were sure that the regents were
sitting back expecting a confirmation of what they had already said,"

Trimester System Incurs Sporadic Successes

The trimester experiment has turned out to be a success in the
opinion of many of University department heads.
Pre-registration had caused doubts as to whether or not en-
rollment would be large enough to justify the enlarged summer
However, late registration filled the classes very desirably.
Although some departments were hampered by the unexpected
popularity, or unpopularity, of certain courses, in general, their
predictions turned out to be quite accurate. A few departments had
trouble getting enough personnel, while others did not.
The Romance Languages and Literature department were not
forced to add or drop any classes from the time schedule.
Most of the classes had about half the fall and winter term
enrollment. In the elementary courses which normally have 22
students, there were from 10 to 16 in French 'and from 5 to 13 in
Spanish. In intermediate courses which usually contain 15 students
there is an average of six or seven. The more advanced courses
also are about half the normal size, Prof. J. C. O'Neill, chairman
of the department, said.
All undergraduate courses run through the full term II, with

one exception, Italian 101. The graduate courses are taught during
IIIB. O'Neill explained that they had neither the staff nor the
funds to conduct a sizable number of classes during IIIA.
He doubted that IIIA would be as successful as the others for
a long time, because of difficulty in hiring teachers and because of
lower student attendance. It is somewhat difficult to hire regular
staff for the full term, because the need for teachers is greater
during the regular fall and spring terms and because the faculty
is allowed to teach all three trimesters.
But fortunately, O'Neill said, they were able to hire excellent
foreign teachers to replace the regular staff. "The trimester has
been very successful so far and I think it is very worthwhile," he
On the other hand, Prof. C. K. Pott, chairman of the Germanic
Languages and Literature department, said that, as in past summer
sessions, they had no difficulty in hiring regular faculty for the
From past experience, therefore, he is optimistic about IIIB. He
had been worried about IIIA. Therefore, his department offered a
"cautious but suitable" program for IIA.
The German department is not offering a program for the full

term, because they felt that all courses offered in IIA could be
followed up by the next course during IIIB. Pott said that he was
"quite pleased with the way the trimester system has turned out
and that, for the German department, it has been a success."
Not all the departments met with such success. The English
department was forced to cancel English 447, because only three
students had enrolled in it. They also had to add six sections for
English 123, 231 and 269.
Robert D. Marble, office manager of the English department,
said that some classes are approximately the same size as the fall
and winter term classes. They had tried to reduce class size during
the summer, because of the shorter time alloted for course mate-
rial. However, because of erratic enrollment and the unpredicta-
bility of what the students will sign up for, overcrowding resulted.
The political science department did not have to drop or add
courses for the summer. They did not expect a large enrollment in
their department, so they offered a limited number of courses.
The small enrollment in the mathematics department was
expected and is normal for summer session. The chemistry depart-
ment, experiencing a 50 per cent increase in enrollment, did not
have to add or drop courses.


Protest U.S.
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (A)
-- A demonstration protesting
U nited Stateseintervention in the
Dominican Republic touched off
violence between factions in the
demonstrators' ranks last night,
as one person was reported killed
and three others injured.
The casualties apparently oc-
curred when shooting broke out
among the crowd of 5000 in a
square facing the congressional
Witnesses said the clash involv-
ed Communist and anti-Commu-
nist elements within the crowd.
The demonstration was jointly or-
ganized by the pro-Peron General
Labor Federation (CGT) and the
leftist university students' groups.
The fighting demonstrators de-
manded that.. the U.S. wAthdraw,
its troops from the Dominican
Republic and that Argentina
should not send any troops there
as part of a proposed inter-Amer-
ican force.
Foreign Minister Miguel Angel
Zavala Ortiz told newsmen while
the demonstration was still going
on that President Arturo Illia's
administration was thinking of
issuing a decree to dispatch "pro-
tective" and not "fighting" forces
to the Dominican Republic.

David Newcomb, who is covering
the report for the student news-
paper at Berkeley, commented.
Committee Liberal
Newcomb said that most people
felt the regents did not realize
that committee head Jerome
Byrne was so liberal when they
appointed him to the committee
three months ago.
An important question mark re-
mains in the controversy: will the
board of regents accept and take
action upon the report? Although
the committee was expressly form-
ed by the regents, there were in-
dications that it would not.
The chairman of the board of
regents had said "in my personal
opinion" that "I doubt they'll
treat most of the recommenda-
tions with great seriousness."
Newcomb said he had no idea
what action the .board would take
on the report.
The nine-man committee's 85-
page report is probably not what
the regents had expected. It sug-
gested a large number of sweep-
ing changes including:
-Decrease in the "enormous
powers" of the regents;
-A student referendum to de-
cide on the degree to which stu-
dents can engage in political ac-

Dean H. McLaughlin of the uni-

plus Byrne, the report is obviously

properly wide range.
"Little opinion is presented

Genuinely Concerned
The committee report lacked
strong censure of protesting stu-
dents. On the contrary, it said
they "were genuinely and deeply
concerned about off-campus po-
litical and social action and their

property as a base for the organi-

oviet Lunik Fails
'Soft Landing' Test
By The Associated Press
MOSCOW-The Soviet Union announced yesterday that its space-
craft Lunik 5 hit the moon but indicated it had failed to make a
"soft landing" on the lunar surface.
Such a landing would have put the Russians at least half a
year ahead of the United States in the race to put a man on the moon.
The first announcement distributed by the Taas news agency

It said "a great deal of infor-
mation was obtained" as the 3,250
pound craft approached the moon.
The purpose of a soft landing
is to continue to allow the craft
to continue to emit radioed in-
formation after it lands on the
moon. 1
Partial Failure
By saying information was ob-
tained only in the approach, the
announcement indicated t h e

did not say-that the spacecraft
had failed to lower itself gently
onto the moon.
With indications of a soft land-

their announcement of the results
so as to emphasize the accom-
plishments in gathering data.
It said information obtained was
necessary "for the further elab-
oration of a system for soft land-
ing on the moon's surface."

A Western observer suggested
this meant they had learned what
went wrong this time and hoped
to avoid that trouble the next

U.S. Forces Needed To Prevent Crisis

Special To The Daily
DETROIT-"U.S. aids in South-
east Asia are necessary to prevent
a large conflict from developing,"
Thanat Khoman, Minister of For-
eign Affairs of Thailand, said at
a press conference here yesterday.
The Thai foreign minister went'
on to say that the U.S. military
stepup in South Viet Nam will
be shown as justified in the course'
of future events.
Thanat is visiting this country
in order to present a "Report
from Free Asia" in several large
American cities. The report is a
statement of Thailand's position
regarding the growth of com-
munism in Southeast Asia.
Thailand, according to minister
Thanat, is "not adverse to nego-

tiations that will insure a lasting
peace in Southeast Asia," but so
far "no indication of desire to
hold such talks has come from the
other side.
The foreign minister felt that
Thailand might be the next target
for communist aggression and
pointed out that infiltration by
communists across its borders is
already taking place.
Thanat said that precautions
against communist action are al-
ready being undertaken in Thai-
land, including "Bracing up" bor-
der protection, making sure that
any troop movements across Thai
borders will be communicated
quickly and effectively,

night as the probable vehicle to
preside over a hopeful return to
peace in the Dominican -Republe.
The goal would be free elections
within about six months.
The United States is giving futll
support to efforts by the Organi-
zation of American States to es-
tablish such a governmei*.
Latin American diplomatic
circles reported it may be in sight.
And Col. Francisco Caamano
Deno, head of the Dominican
rebels and their designated Presi-
dent of the Republic, was reported
possibly more amenable to such a
plan than he has been in the past.
This optimism about eventual
rebel agreement was based partly
on a statement yesterday by rebel
Foreign Minister Jottin Cury in
Santo Domingo after a meeting
there of two OAS peace officials
with Caamano.
"There is every reason to hope
we are near a settlement," he said.
Hopes here were also fed by
Msgr. Emmanuele Clarizio, the
Papal Nuncio in Santo Domingo,
who reported Tuesday he was
highly optimistic after meeting
with Caamano.
Straw in the Wind
There was perhaps one other
straw in the wind, too, in a letter
Caamano sent to the Organization
of American States yesterday.
He called on the OAS to make
an urgent on-the-spot investiga-
tion to determine whether Com-
munists have control or influence
over his movement as some have
And then he said he would ac-
cept the establishment of an inter-
American police force in the Do-
minican Republic-a key element
in moving toward a solution.
But he coupled this acceptance
with the proviso that such a force
"might act as soon as the con-
stitutional government (his rebel
government) is recognized by the
OAS governments."
There appeared no likelihood
this requirement would be accept-
ed, but there were hopes here it
would be dropped.
Caamano suggested that former
Presidents Romulo Betancourt of
Venezuela and Jose Figureres of
Costa Rica and ex-Gov. Luis
Munoz Marin of Puerto Rico help
the OAS conduct the investigation
on Communism in his movement.

sity would take a financial loss.
There are some additional fac-
tors that must be considered, Bur-
roughs explained. In the first
place, indirect costs are difficult
to determine. They can be deter-
mined on an overall basis but not
in terms of a specific project.
In the same sense it is difficult
to determine how much of an ad-
ministrator's time is spent work-
ing on one specific project, but it
is possible to determine how much
time he spends on all research
Another factor which creates
difficulty is that many grants do
not make allowances for indirect
costs. For example, Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare Department
grants do not allow even 20 per
cent of direct costs to pay for
these indirect costs, Burroughs ex-
It is because of the inadequacies
of several types of grants and the
inadequacy of the federal govern-
ment's reimbursement for indirect
payments that Burroughs claims
the change is an advantage.
Assuming that the 20 per cent
limitation is not replaced with
something equally as bad, or
worse, the University has made
a gain, Burroughs said.
