Palme, a 1943 Kenyon graduate, did not seem per- turbed. He kept with his text ex- cept at one point when he spoke of academic freedom. Then he said that academic freedom "also includes the right to be heard." His remark brought cheers from the crowd. The longshoremen said they came to protest the treatment of U.S. ambassador lo Sweden Dr. Jerome H. Holland, who has been the target of several anti-A- merican demonstrations. Sweden has also been criti- cized for offering aid to North Vietnam and for harboring U.S. military deserters. The longshoremen, wearing steel helmets inscribed "We Love America" had marched in military fashion from a parking lot through the audience, led by a security officer. Then they fanned out to circle the audience. They began shout- ing and jeering as Palme began to speak, and kept it up until he finished. The demonstrators then marched away, boarded their buses and left, just as Kenyon President William. G. Caples 'Underdog' Kennard Wins at Fort Worth By LEE JONES Associated Press Writer Liberal Sen.

Finch, the youngest and most politically glamorous member of President Nixon's Cabinet, became the first to go Saturday. Finch, 44, relinquished his (rouble-ridden post at the De- partment of Health, Education and Welfare and was appointed one of three principal counse- lors to President Nixon. The President designated Un- dersecretary of Slate Elliot Hi- chardson to succeed Finch in the HEW hotspot. Richardson will be returning (o a department where he served as an .assistant secretary for congressional affairs during the Eisenhower adminislralion, Senale confirmation is required but this seems likely to be a routine matter. Finch, whose (enure has been marked by employe challenges to his leadership and by some- times bitter intra-administra- tion battles, moves to an uncer- tain future as an adviser to his longtime friend at the White House. Nixon, referring to Finch as his "oldest friend and associate within the said the onetime California lieuten- ant governor would advise him on a broad range of domestic and foreign-policy questions. The job shuffle, the President told reporters, "will bring In HEW a man who has great ad- ministrative experience." The chief executive appeared lo allude to the widespread com- plaint among lop administration officials that Finch lacks tha managerial skills fo tame (he traditionally unruly HEW. Finch lakes a salary cut of a year in moving from his Cabinet job. It ap- pears likely he will also lose some of (he political visibility lie reportedly is counting on lo propel him inlo (he Senate. "It's a higher calling but a lower Finch quipped. Finch joins Daniel P. Moynl- han and Bryce N. Harlow as presidential highest designations on the While House staff. Harlow and Moynihan, howev- er, are often obscured by two technically lower-ranking advis- ers believed to have greater power: H. R. "Rob" Haldeman, chief of staff; and John D. Ehr- licliman, domestic-affairs chief. Finch referred lo the shift as "coming home to be with Bob and John.1' The appointment of Finch, generally regarded as one of the more liberal administration offi- cials, appears to have been de- signed in part to blunt criticism that (he President relies too much on the advica of his con- servative attorney general, John N. Mitchell. Nixon suggested (hat Finch will serve as a major adviser, silling on the Domestic Affairs Council and (raveling regularly wilh (he President on foreign visits or on working vacations in California and Florida. The President Indicated to newsmen there are policy areas (AP Wlrtphotai) ROBERT H. FINCH llrst lo go where he has not been receiving the full range of counsel Jte ex- peels from Finch. Reports of a White House shift for Finch firsl cropped up sev- eral weeks ago, but Finch's closest aides dismissed them at the time, describing any While House job as a politically unac- ceptable comedown for their boss. Finch has been In close con- tact with Nixon since his hospi- tafeation three weeks ago, shortly before he was to con- front dissident HEW employes. ELLIOT RICHARDSON takes hotspot But the final decision was made only Friday, administra- tion officials said. Many of Finch's top aides had not been informed as late as Saturday morning. Finch has been resting In Florida and speaking in (be West since being released from the hospital with a diagnosis of extreme fatigue.

But the line held-partly, one radical muttered, "because we really don't want to beat up or burn up our brothers and si> ters." It was the same site where a student, Kevin Moran, 22, died apparently trying to protect (he bank from being burned during a confrontation in April. A. coro- ner's inquest ruled that he had been killed when an officer's gun accidentally fired. The predecessor of the bank building was destroyed in a fire last Feb. 25 during four days of demonstrations cenlered at the nearby campus of the University of California at Santa Barbara. The current replacement, a bungalow prefa- bricated structure, has been re- peatedly threatened since Its con- struction. Officials of the Bank of Amer- ica have declared they won't intimidated into leaving despite radicals' displeasure with its presence in Isla Vista, the mile- square community of adja- cent to the university. Late Friday night and Satur- day morning, the youths again moved on the bank in what they called retaliation in the wake of 17 Santa Barbara County Grand Jury indictments for the origi- nal bank burning.

The result, they say, is mathematical gib- berish. Counly Auditor-Controller Maurice Uhlcr said he was on the "verge" of solving the prob- lem Friday night when news- men entered the computer area and ruined his "train of thought." After 26 hours on the job, Chief Programmer James Mc- Cltisky finally went home Fri- day night. Four other program- mers, including men from a computer firm, went lo work.
