Dean of Students Millet assumed the point position on the DuBois issue, making public statements regarding the status, reviews, analyses, and delays in decision-making. A faculty committee recommended club recognition. Campus activists, from Young Socialists to student senators, declared the DuBois issue one of “Free Speech” (mimicking Berkeley), created an ad hoc committee, and birthed a campus free-speech movement. Henry declared a reorganization, creating a new chancellor position to manage the main campus and named Jack W. Peltason to the job. The first campus antiwar speak-out was organized. Phil Durrett and Vic Berkey advanced as movement leaders.
