(Studio) Students riot at University California Santa Barbara campus.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Santa Barbara, California) Demonstration described. Bank of American burned; money and important records survived. Cause of disturbance thought to be conviction of Chicago Seven; students deny direct connection between riot and campus speech by Chicago Seven lawyer William Kunstler. [KUNSTLER - says doesn't consider minor violence a good tactic, but can't condemn those who do it.] [Student Bryan DOHERTY - says Kunstler presence coincidental; Bank American symbolizes United States imperialism.] California Governor Ronald Reagan flies to Santa Barbara to consider local requests for national guard troops. May be more trouble tonight.
