SAIGON (R) - North Vietnamese forces overran two more
South Vietnamese bases below the demilitarized zone yes-
terday, and drove to within seven miles of the provincial cap-
ital of Quang Tri.
Yesterday's attack, part of a six day thrust by Communist
forces into the South, brought to 14 the number of outposts
abandoned by South Vietnamese troops.
In Washington, Defense Department officials condemn-
ed the attack, but hinted privately that there was little the
United States could do about it. From a military standpoint,
officials said, it is plain that stepped-up air attacks are the
main recourse left for U.S. forces in Vietnam.

Political analysts were proven
starkly mistaken on two major
counts by the results of Mon-
day's City Council election: the
newly enfranchised young voters
are both capable of turning out
in large numbers and will not
automatically vote like their
parents do.
A few months ago, experts
across the country had pre-
dicted that only 25 to 30 per
cent of the new voters would
actually cast ballots. Monday's

figure - in a local election -
was well over 50 per cent of
those registered.
In addition, students provid-
ed a surprise by turning, in
large majority, to the Human
Rights Party. The party's can-
didates averaged close to 60
per cent of the vote in student
dominated precincts of the First,
Second and Third wards.
The student vote, alone, how-
ever is not large enough to have
electedaHRP in any of the city's
five wards.

The Regents decided to close
CRCR last summer because a lit-
erary college Executive Commit-
tee recommendation cited its "fail-

support."
The University contributed
about $30,000 annually to the
center. It also received a sizable
grant from the Carnegie Foun-
dation.

ple, HRP candidate Jerry De-
Grieck's vote in largely non-stu-
dent - neighborhoods was well
above the margin of his victory.
A certain amount of this old-
er HRP vote can be ascribed to
such aberrations as what is
jokingly referred to as "the
grandmother vote" - the can-
didate's appeal to voters on a
purely emotional level.
In both Wechsler's and De-
Grieck's campaign, however,
there appear to have been a
considerable number of voters-
mostly Democrats-who turned
to HRP out of disaffection with
three years of Democratic ad-
ministration in the city.
Mayor Robert Harris yester-
day maintained that "a smat-
tering of disillusioned liberals"
was in part responsible for the
IHRP victory.
The other surprise story in
the election was the strong
Democratic showing in the
Fourth and Fifth Wards - tra-
ditionally Republican turf.
Based on recent elections, the
Democrats gained considerable
ground on the Republicans in
both these wards - despite the
large portion of the student
vote captured by HRP.
In the Fourth Ward, Demo-
cratic contender Mona Walz
fell only 80 votes short of Re-
publican victor Bruce Benner.
In contrast, Gilbert Lee, a
Democrat, last year lost by 574
votes in the same ward to Re-
publican opponent Richard
Hadler.

policies,

By JAN BENEDETTI
"The University should be run
like a democracy. Instead it's
run like a business, like a mill
to move people up the elite lad-
der," says history Prof. Sam
Warner.
Warner, a faculty member for
five years, will leave the Univer-
sity at the end of the term for a
teaching position at Boston Uni-
versity in history and urban
studies.
He is an outspoken critic of
the present University structure
calling for extensive changes in
the way of "democratization."
"The people that large in-
stitutions are supposed to serve
usually aren't raenPRn+.C1 i

ly to solve problems in the Uni-
versity.
"The students and faculty
must function as a community.
Others think these ideas are rad-
ical, but actually they're quite
ancient, dating back to the first
colleges," he says.
A major- obstacle to change,
according to Warner, lies in self-
imposed isolation by both stu-
dents and faculty.
"The standard faculty notion
is to say how can we keep this
little world for ourselves, while
students say 'I'm only here for
four years, what can I do?'."
Warner has been actively in-
volved in the controversial Pro-
gram for Educational and Social

Singer also said academic prob-
lems, the political science depart-
ment chairman's "dim view of
pacifists," and poor management
contributed to the center's demise.
Singer said center workers stud-
ied such problems as race rela-
tions, nationalism, and the econ-
omic consequences of disarma-
man.
