The issue is simple on the side of the Free Sneech Movement led bv Mario Savio, New York East Side native and philosophy junior. The group wants freedom to recruit members anil collect funds anywhere on the campus for off-campus political action. The action chiefly has supported Negro civil rights causes. Second Sit-In A notice that Savio and three other campus rebel leaders were being summoned before the Faculty Commitice on Stu- dent Conduct precipitated the second sit-in in two months at Sproul Hall in a bitter contro- versy over new university regu- lalions restricting political ac- livty to designated campus ar- eas. As the last student was taken from the debris-littered build- ing, Prof. John H. Reynolds, Berkeley chapter chairman of University Professors, issued the slntement demanding re- moval of Chancellor Edward W. Strong. "The present crisis cannot be stilled unless there is a com- plete amnesty and a new chief campus official appointed who lias the complete confidence of (he said the state- ment approved by the chapter's board of directors.

They persisted in defiance by going limp when arrested. Karen Taylor, 24, of Roches- ter, N.Y., a senior in bacteriolo- gy, was the last student arrest- ed.

Taylor leaded back Thursday night to Viet Nam to shape new teps for strengthening the war Hurt against Communist guer- illas but without sending nore U. S. personnel to the be- eaguered little nation, Taylor is due back in Saigon n Sunday to begin urgent con erences with South Vietnamese fficials to implement decisions eached here in a week of dis- ussions with President Johnson nd his top diplomatic and mili- ary advisers.

S. forces in South Viet Nam. These currently number nearly welcomes international support to help South Viet Nam with technical, engineering, medical and logistical support. The big question remaining unanswered as Taylor left is vhethcr strikes will be made against supply: lines of the Viet Dong guerrillas outside South Viet Nam. On this subject, Tay- or would say only that, "We alked about everything you can hink of." Air Strikes Loom Dispatches from Saigon saM here are growing signs that'the Souih Vietnamese air'force, U. S.-trained and using American- supplied aircraft, soon -will be striking at Red infiltration routes outside South Viet Nam. These reports said that such probably would not; be against communities in Commu- nist North Viet Nam or in Laos but more likely would be against supply depots in jungle mountains and valleys. After a second meeting of one wur with the President, which followed a 214-hour conference with the President and his'top advisers the former chairman of the U. S. Join Chiefs ot Staff told newsmen that U. S. policy in South Vie Nam remains the same, bu that "we change our tactics and methods of ultimately reaching that objective."
