A-6-INDEPENDENT (AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM Lo«s Beach, Calif., w«j., Feb. Strike Not s Over, Says Hayakawa »' Students Block Teachers' Demand for State of Peace LOS ANGELES (UPI) -- Acimg President S. 1. I I.i\\ikawa said Tuesday hi doubted "very much" thai a proposed agreement to end a six-week strike by union teachers at San Francisco College would end their walkout at the embattled campus. Hayakawa told newsmen that after a college official signed the agreement Monday, the American Federation of Teachers had injected a condition to return to the classroom only if "a peaceful and free academic atmosphere prevails on campus." "I expect only a fraction to come hack because the students are still on .strike," the famed seman- lic'ist said. THE STUDENT action would prevent a peaceful atmosphere, he said. A showdown on the agreement appeared to be nearly certain Wednesday when Gov. Ronald Reagan, who voiced opposition to the proposed settlement, SAN FRANCISCO (Jfl -- Teachers and students picketed peacefully Tuesday at San Francisco State College. r meets in Los Angeles with others on the State College Board of Trustees, to consider the agreement. Reagan said Tuesday in Sacramento he would not agree to the proposed settlement if its terms were those contained in the news media. H a y a k a w a , despite knowledge of Reagan's announced opposition, predicted tiie trustees would approve the settlement, which was conditionally signed by a trustees representative and a San Francisco State official. Commenting on the governor's two-fold reason for opposing the agreement, Hayakawa said striking teachers would receive pay only for time worked and the agreement did not stipulate the AFT as a bargaining agent for state college faculties. REAGAN said the San Francisco State pact would have the effect of making the AFT the bargaining agent. He said the AFT had been repudiated by a majority of the faculty members. The governor also objected to what be said was a provision that t h e . professors could ret u r n to work w i t h o u t being docked for days they were net teaching. FACULTY VOTE HITS AT DUMKE LOS ANGELES (fft -More than 5,000 California State College faculty members have voted nearly 2-1 in favor of asking lh» resignation of Chancellor Glenn S.

K1DDER From Our National Bureau LONDON - - If Presi- dem Richard M. Nixon has achieved noihing else on his current European t r i p he has at least made a good impression upon the British press.

The Nixon-Wilson d i n - ner talk was the last extended session between the two men since Nixon arrived Monday night-talks that have taken up more than a quarter of the President's 40 hours in Britain. He leaves for Bonn Wednesday morning on the next stage of his lightning European tour. Trevor Lloyd-Hughes. Wilson's spokesman, said there were "very constructive conversations" on the Atlantic Alliance, (he Middle East and Western relations with the Communists. The decision to exchange information on race relations was a surprise. It arose out of a spontaneous conversation that must have touched on Britain's current concern over the high rate of colored immigration into this country. IN EARLIER talks with Wilson, Nixon pledged U.S. dedication to European unity and to NATO. He again voiced support for British entry into the European Common Market. Nixon thus obliquely signaled U.S. opposition to French President Charles De Gaulle's reported plan for reshaping the framework of a united Europe. U.S. officials played down the trouble potential in De Gaulle's proposals, saying his idea was "a pretty preliminary suggestion" and insisting it would cause no particular problem when Nixon meets Friday with the French president. Outside the political arena, Nixon seemed keen to mingle with the friendly crowds in the misty streets of the capital. Time and again he left his security men behind and got in among the people to shake hands and exchange greetings. He lunched with Queen Elizabeth It at Buckingham Palace, placed a wreath in Westminster Abbey and paid a surprise visit to the House of Commons.

I am in a senior citizen's club and am having an argument with the club president. Can you please tell us on which side, of the speaker's stand the U.S. flag should be displayed. Does it make a difference if the flag is on a platform or on the floor? S.M., Bellflower. A. When the U.S. flag is displayed on a platform or on a stage, it should be placed on a staff to the right of the speaker as he faces the audience. Any other flag should be on his left. When the U.S. flag is displayed on the same level as the audience, the flag should be to the right of the audience as it faces the speaker. Any other flag should be to the audience's left.

(McCarthy nor was lie readily accepted by f o r - eign writers during his years as U.S. vice president. REPRESENTATIVES of the foreign press who covered the election of 1900 were enchanted by John F. Kennedy and in their view as opposed to Kennedy, Nixon cut but a sorry figure. In the years of his political exile, so to speak, Nixon traveled much but made little dent on the press of the countries which he visited. Nixon is basically not the type of man to whom reporters are drawn nor is he particularly drawn to them. Nixon is an operator rather than a thinker, a doer rather than a philosophizer. He has a straight line approach to problems, both in deed and in word. He has none of the wit of Kennedy nor the eloquence of that darling of t h e international p r e s s corps, Adlai E. Stevenson. Yet the British press in the past couple of days have become surprisingly pro-Nixon. One uses the word surprisingly because of all the newspapers which in the past of shown contempt for Nixon the British press has been in the forefront. In the past, they have derided his appearance, his style, his manner and his words. They had measured him and found him wanting. Now suddenly it is another story. The British press is cheering him on, wishing him well and speaking most effusively of his first month as President of ihe United States. London papers are talking of his "sure-footed- ness" of the deliberate way in which he is handling his new job and of the calm, rational way in which he appears to be conducting himself as President. The London papers which heretofore have been considerably less than friendly to Nixon have reversed themselves and are applauding him with vociferous enthusism. There are of course a number of reasons for that which have little or nothing to do with Nixon's personality. The British are for the moment in a row with General Charles De Gaulle and they see Nixon as the strongest ally t h a i might come to their aid. The British being a f u n - damentally sentimental people are more than willing to give the new President a chance, especially as they recognize that their future is almost inextricably entwined with that of the United States. But there is one other element in the curious reversal of the British at- liludc ' towards Nixon. That is that he undoubtedly is a more personable and more attractive man as President. The Nixon who is President is quite different from the Nixon who wanted to be president. HAVING achieved his own personal summit, he Is more relaxed, more certain and considerably less tense than he once was. Comforts L.A. Legion ~ 'We Lost the Election, but We Won the Issues By BOB HOUSER Political Editor Prolesior Hubert H. Humphrey flies back tu his Minnesota teaching du- lies today after 2% days in Los Angeles comforting his late legions with the theme, "We lost the election but we won the issues." The former vice president scored cordially with some 2,000 UCLA students in their student union Tuesday noon, telling that "now generation" to concentrate their energies on the national ills which they can help correct. They cheered, too, when, in reference to minorities, he said "people who have been denied for a century must have an extra dose of opportunity -- more than equal opportunity." POVERTY is a "now" largft, he said. "It's not just an occasional b l i g h t , but i t ' s here, indigenous, cancerous, malignant and in substantial measure." Money is the answer, he said, but legislators and more of the public have to be convinced. Humphrey appealed for suffrance for the poor, who are asked to manage some of their own programs but who sometimes do it poorly because they've never had a chance at respon^ibilitv "Be as toleratnt of them as you would of a doctor who has made one mistake after another over 25 to 30 years experimenting toward a Nobel prize." He askec, Is it any wonder inner-cities are bewildered and frustrated when those people see a hundred-story b u i l d i n g rise, and in its shadow the filth of humanity." r l he crises the nation speaks of, said Humphrey, "are the worst schools in areas where they need the best; the fewest garbage collectors where they're most needed; the highest crime rates where there are fewer and lower grade policemen." * * * * THE POOR are more poorly housed today than they were 10 years ago because legislators didn't believe the public wanted the massive housing prescribed 20 years ago by conservative Sen.

Palm Springs Tram summit station had a total of eight feet as of Tuesday night, and snow showers were perdicted to continue through this afternoon in Southland ranges before the storm rolled eastward.
