Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - December 28, 1970, Winnipeg, ManitobaWinnipeg free press monday december 28. 1970 Polo Park City Berkeley confounds i Simpsons Sears after Chris Massy Abb i prophets of doom by Charles Foley Berkeley California Spe Cial owns Berkeley is destroying for six years now the prophets of doom have been shaking their Heads Over this most famous of California University campuses its students and the University town that relies for its Well be ing on the 11 million Dollar a month educational payroll. But Berkeley lives in spite of rallies riots and bombings that have made its name a byword around the world in talk of the . Revolutionary ferment. The past year has been relatively Calm and the University is in Good academic form. With its astonishing blend of innovation and tradition of intellectual Power ardor it is considered in academic circles to be the equal of any in the country and the peer of most. A Brand new million Art museum of unique architectural interest opened this month to join Berkeley s Superb volume Library and the great Lawrence radiation Laboratory As Pride of the Campus. The tourists who gape at Candle hawkers the organic food Sellers the yellow Robed Sha Ven headed Krishn aites and other assorted freaks in Sproul Plaza May depart with All their prejudices confirmed. But Sproul s Homespun guerrilla theatre is about As relevant to the University As Hyde Park Corner to the houses of Parlia ment. A fair slice of Berkeley s troubles arise from the Street As they Call them selves the thousands of Young people drop outs and dissidents who have left their Homes out of a variety of Dis contents and headed in traditional . Style for the promised land of California. They say that if one turned the . On its Side everything Loose would fall into the Golden state and much of it ends up in Berkeley. The City pop. Lies on the Eastern Shore of san fran Cisco Bay. The wooded canyons that Rise from the water Are crowded with the White houses of the academic Community. On the waterfront Industry rears its oily head. And in Between is a very Ordinary Small Ameri can town Replete with Gas stations plastic dinettes bars and billboards. Melting pot City administration and therefore fears it. Letters flow into gov. Ronald Reagan s educational offices in Sacra mento the state capital expressing rage and bewilder ment i voted against the school Bond Issue because that was the Only Way i could say what i feel about says one. And gov. Reagan himself with his financial Cut a a c k s in higher education seems to feel much the same Way. A Bronze plaque that hangs in his study epitomizes his attitude obey the rules or get what specifically is it in Berkeley s record that raises conservative tempers Well Berkeley is blamed for starting the wave of student turmoil in the 1960s with its free speech movement. The Media magnified what today seems a very mild protest a few sit ins and rallies and no broken Heads. There was the uproar Over the offer of a lecture platform to Black Panther chieftain Al d r i d g e Cleaver. There was above All the people s Park Battle. A handful of Street people it turned out that Only one of the so called people s Park committee was an undergrad uate took Over a vacant site belonging to the University but Well outside the Campus. They wished to create a symbolic Patch of Green. Police using riot Gas and guns dispersed them even tear gassing the Campus from a National guard is the rather proud of Berkeley s reputation is a melting pot a Crucible o f experimentation and it struggles valiantly to strike balance Between maximum Freedom for the individual and the need to control the Lunatic fringe. The Campus itself seems often a reflection of the larger problems of the United states. Recently the american Council of education said that its Stu Dies indicated that Berkeley Campus is the Best balanced distinguished University in the rating it slightly above Harvard. And sociologist Robert Bullah in his new Book beyond belief explains that he came to Berkeley in preference to its great rivals because it evinces the intensity the immediacy and the openness of an Emer gent social in an increasingly unsympathetic environment the University is bound to have its tensions but for one trying to grapple with and define what the order is it is a Good place to Ultra conservative California of course hates it. The Public generally cannot understand what a going on at Berkeley helicopter. A Young Man was killed and More than 700 people arrested. Many of them were roughly handled and molested by angry police. Once again the cry went up the University is destroying it permissive professors were to blame of course and gov. Reagan swore to restore the balance by bringing his nominees into California University s Board of regents. He deposed University president Clark Kerr on election and this month his other Arch enemy Chancellor Roger Heyns of Berkeley has resigned. Or. Heyns was a fairly firm disciplinarian but gov. Reagan wants someone firmer. Mention is made of one of his present education advisers prof. Alex Sherriffs himself a former Ber Keley vice Chancellor and a sup Porter of the permissive pro Fessor theory. Why talk of student revolution when the faculty is to blame for the unrest the he says were not against society be fore they went to the universe Many fear that they would turn still further against it should a hardliner like or. Sherriffs take control. Easy to smile As for the Street people it is easy to smile at the Wilder enthusiasms of the Young Devo tees of the drug culture to Nail their political naivety and fanaticism and to Brand them All with the Mark of the criminal hangers on and the embittered anti social f a i 1 u r e s in their midst. Their Mecca is Telegraph Avenue and boarded windows on a few shops the barricaded Bank of America testify to their desire to smash the sys misguided wrong headed and just Plain dumb they Proba Bly Are. Yet the Avenue is one of the most fascinating streets in the . Amid the pushers and the panthers the dazzlingly painted protest Walls covered with revolutionary slogans you sense a Flo Wering of things not Only new but worthwhile an Atmo sphere of idealism and Hope.
