RegentisStudents MulAim tekee

In the aftermath of the crises at Berkeley last fall, the Uni-
versity of California Regents appointed a committee to evaluate
and assess the blame for the crises. At the same time, the student
group which had led the protests headed toward a period of
reorganization and transition.
The committee has now reported to the Regents, and the
reorganization of the student group is underway. Neither the
Regents nor many of the students seemed pleased with the result
of their efforts.
The findings of the Byrne report to the Regents came after
extensive investigation of the Berkeley situation and of the
events leading to it and the institution's handling of the protests,
its policies and its organization.
Highest on the list of the report's recommendations are those
seeking to provide a system capable of dealing with administrative
and governmental problems of the gigantic, geographically scat-
tered university, now numbering more than 70,000 students, more
than 27,000 of whom are located on the Berkeley campus alone.
The report, devoted a considerable portion of its 85 page
length to the idea of a decentralization of the administration of
the university's ten campuses. The Regents would be deprived of
much of their present power. The report recommended that most
legislative and judicial powers be delegated to the chancellors
of the individual campuses.

The Board of Regents would become merely-a general policy
making body and a sort of coordinating committee for the entire
The Board has not accepted without criticism the somewhat
radical provisions of the Byrne report. One Board member com-
mented, at the time of the first revelation of the report's contents,
that most members would not "take the report very seriously."
The Regents have appointed another group to evaluate uni-
versity policies in relation to the Berkeley crisis-the Meyer
committee. Most observers feel that the new committee will
probably come up with much more conservative recommendations.
A principal topic of the Byrne report and a concern of the
Regents over the last year-the radical and militant Free Speech
Movement, a coalition of student groups united to fight university
regulations-dissolved recently, only to be replaced the next day
by the Free Students Union.
The Free Students Union has as its aim a more permanent
and stable Berkeley student movement-a movement which can
eventually act as a collective bargaining unit for the students.
The FSU has run into criticism from students who charge
that it can never maintain the momentum needed to effect reforms
at Berkeley. Other critics have held that it can never muster
the membership needed to bargain with the administration.
FSU leaders recently set up a meeting with two Regents
through the cooperation of University of California President
Clark Kerr. The meeting is scheduled for some time in the next

FSU members will meet with Regents Edward Heller and
Donald McLaughlin to discuss FSU feelings on the necessity for
students and student representatives to speak in person with the
entire Board of Regents.
The FSU delegates are expected to ask the two Regents to
completely withdraw the uncompleted Meyer Report and give
the Byrne Report more careful consideration.
In a telegram to the Regents sent last Friday, the FSU
assembly demanded open negotiations with the Regents concerning
the Meyer and Byrne Reports.
The Berkeley crises of last fall are still not out of the public
eye.' In a recent statement to a Congressional committee, Federal
Bureau of Investigation Director J. Edgar Hoover rained criticism
on the now-defunct Free Speech Movement.
He charged that Communists were directly involved in the
demonstrations in the fall.
Hoover testified that individuals with "subversive backgrounds"
who participated in the demonstrations included five faculty
members and 38 students or others connected in some way with
the university.
He did not identify the individuals in his testimony.
The protests were cited by the FBI chief as an example of
"a demonstration which, while not Communist originated or
controlled has been exploited by a few Communist for their own
Student leaders at California have repeatedly blasted Hoover's
statements as inflammatory and at times as slanderous.

By The Associated Press f
WASHINGTON - The first
naval gunfire attacks on Viet
Cong targets ashore raised the
possibility yesterday that the
United States Navy might aug-
ment the air strikes against North
Viet Nam by bombarding ports
and shipping.
This was the first time since
the end of the Korean War that
U.S. Navy guns had been used
against an enemy shore target.
However, China and some neu-
tral observers charged during the
1950's that the U.S. often shelled
the coast of China in retaliation
for Chinese bombardments of Na-
tionalist-held Quemoy and Matsu.
Defense Department authorities
avoided directly answering wheth-
er any basic policy would prevent
destroyers and cruisers of the
fleet from laying down shellf ire
eeon North Viet Nam ports or costal
by areas. It is out of these ports that

1o- ments for the Viet Cong come.

Prof. Eric R. Wolfe of the an-

on what he said was one of the
most positive aspects of the
group. He referred to the "total

Since it lacks a central directorate,
he said, there are no people at the
top who simply give orders and do
not act.
As a result, the University
teach-in exemplified the drive and
spontaneity of, those taking part
in it; Wolf explained. The Wash-

Second, they are sensitive. They
certainly do not enjoy the name-

a mistake. Even they have doubts

The other three stood up and

Miss Hayes, of Chicago, was the

poenaed to give their versions of

During questioning of Versta
Miller of Chicago, Nittle intro-
duced the name of Mrs. Hall. He
asked Miller if Mrs. Hall was a
member of the Regional Board of
American Youth for Democracy in
1945. Nittle charged the organiza-
tion was founded by the Commu-
nist Party.
This brought objection from Al-
bert E. Jenner, Jr., counsel for
Mrs. Hall, and from Stamler.
Attend Meeting
Later, Nittle asked Miss Hayes
if she and Stamler had attended
together a meeting of the Ameri-
can Youth Peace Crusade Sept.
12, 1952 in Chicago. Nittle asked
if Miss Hayes knew Stamler was
Illinois youth coordinator for the
American Youth Peace Crusade.
Jenner objected to these ques-
tions and asked that any question-
ing dealing with Stamler and Miss
Hall be conducted in a closed ses-
sion. The objection and request'
were turned down.
Nittle also said Stamler had
addressed a National Committee
Conference of the American Peace
Crusade in Chicago March 14-15,
1953. He said the committee had
information that both the Ameri-
can Peace Crusade and the Amer-
ican Youth Peace Crusade had
been designated Communist front
Nittle later told newsmen that
the American Peace Crusade had
been cited as a Communist front
in 1956 by the Senate Subcom-
mittee on Internal Security. He
also told them that the American
peace Crusade had been listed as
a Communist front organization
in 1957 by the Subversive Activi-
ties Control Board.

HOWELL-Circuit Court Judge
Leonal'd Bebau ruled yesterday
that the two warring factions of
the Livingston County Democratic
Party must hold a second con-
vention in late July because prop-
er convention procedures were noti
followed last September.
Bebau's verdict settled a unique

situation in nearby Livingston
County where the two factions
each claimed that its candidate
was the legally-elected Democrat-
ic County chairman.
This occurred because of the
confused, violence-torn conven-
tion on Spt. 12 that turned into
two separate "rump conventions."
Not Binding
Bebau ruled that the elections
made during the "rump conven-

tions" held by each faction wE
not binding. One faction, led

Getting an Education:
A Never-Ending Process

The need for continued edu-
cation is becoming increasingly
important in the field of engi-
neering, Raymond Carroll, co-
ordinator of Engineering Sum-
mer Conferences, said recently.
In some areas, the total
amount of technological infor-
mation has doubled in the last
ten or 12 years. For this rea-
son, many engineers are find-
ing a need to go back to school
after five or ten years for addi-
tional learning.
"With technical information
increasing at such a rate it is
impossible for people who are
working in some areas to keep

nology is relatively new, and
for this reason practicing en-
gineers who obtained degrees
10 to 15 years ago received
little or no training in the use
of computers. Therefore some
return to school regularly for
updating their knowledge.
Carroll estimated that out of
more than half'a million prac-
ticing engineers, 100,000 are in
need of more education. The
others have either graduated
recently, are nearing retire-
ment or are working in areas
where technology is not de-
veloping at such a rapid pace,
he said.
Carroll said that this year,

until the new chairman is elected.
No One Won
"Actually," Bebau said, "no one
won this case."
Late yesterday, Bebau said that
the court would not concern itself
with the validity of precinct dele-
gate lists, which the Rettinger
faction had questioned. He said it
was not the place of his court.
Bebau had some words of ad-
vice for both sides shortly after,
he announced his decision. "I

court to come down and carry

The Hero': Interpretation of Society

I --

Tonight the University Players will present the premiere of
"The Hero," by Carl Oglesby. "The Hero" is the third of a trilogy
which won the Hopwood Award for Drama in 1960-61. The other
two plays, "The Season of the Beast" and "The Peacemaker," have
been presented by the University Players here in past seasons.
"The Hero" is a study in human evil and guilt, a portrait of a
perverted Christ figure within the framework of the structure of
Greek tragedy. But the symbolism reaches beyond this structure
into a more abstract interpretation of- the tragedy of the society
in which we live.
"This is not a simple play," Arnold Kendall, director of the
play, said yesterday. "It is deeply symbolic, complex in plot and
