REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(Berkeley, California) 76 students seize Moses Hall. Barricade built. Outside crowd grows; fires built; students dance. Original intent to get credit for racism class by Eldridge Cleaver seems lost. Police move in; students taunt them. Injuries result. Confrontation shown. 76 arrested. Other students call for end to violence for now.
