A-8--INDEPENDENT (AM PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM ixtt («dv c»m., Fri., rtt. a, $575,000 College-Aid Bill Loses Democrats Vole Down Measure Hacked by Keagun SACRAMENTO (/?) -A bill to grant $575,000 to California state colleges for extra spring enrollment failed Thursday to win approval in the Assembly, where Democrats sought a $2-million campus appropriation. The ' measure was sent to a Senate-Assembly conference to attempt to agree . on a compromise figure. Gov. Reagan supported Hie §575.000 appropriation contained in the original bill but raised by Assembly Democrats. Earlier this week, the Senate passed the bill after reducing it to.the original amount. * * * * THE ASSEMBLY'S vote on the Senate version was 26 : 17, 15 short of the required 4] votes. Republicans voted for the measure and Democrats voted against it, after saying Reagan should have appropriated the money last year. College officials said the appropriation would pcr- ariit financing for some 4,000 to 5,000 unexpected students next spring. But they also said the amount wouldn't serve all qualified applicants, and many have been turned away. Democrats increased the appropriation after Legislative Analyst A. Alan Post said the Legislature would be in conflict with its; own policy if it didn't attempt to handle all qualified students. " : . * + * + 'IN REPLY TO Democrats' complaints, Assemblyman Pete Wilson, R- San Diego, the bill's author:, said, "Let us dis- peijse with these fine points and let the state colleges get on with the education of students." Highway Policy Hit by Monagan SACRAMENTO UP) -Assembly Speaker Robert T: Monagan called Thursday for a drastic overhaul of California's "auto syndrome" and freeway-oriented transportation policies. At v i r t u a l l y the same time, the Reagan administration defended the present outlay for highway construction and a Senate committee approved a financial boost for the debt- plagued $1-billion San Francisco area transit system. Monagan, a Tracy Republican, particularly was critical of the traditional concept -- supported by the so-called "freeway establishment" -- of earmarking all gasoline tax- revenues for highway construction and maintenance. The state fuel tax, seven cents a gallon, brings in more than SGOO million a year. IT WOULD take a State Constitutional amendment voted on by the people to change the highway fund system. "The single-minded use of gas tax revenues for h i g h w a-y construction alone is no longer justified," Monagan said in a San Francisco speech. "It must be changed." He said he would not support spending "une extra dime" to build any more metropolitan freeways. "We have literally strangled our cities with roads.". But at virtually the same time, Republican Gov, Reagan's transportation' agency chief, Gordon C. Luce, said he would fight any attempt to raid the present highway construction fund for other uses, such as rapid transit. "We are behind in our highway system in this elate," Luce told a news briefing on the accomplishments of his agency: NEW TRUSTEES NAMED Reinecke: No Reagan Strike-Stand Switch POLITICS STILL EDMUND G. BROWN'S BAG Ex-Governor Chats With Newsmen at State Capitol. --AP Wlrcohoto Brown: Tough UC Stand Aids Reagan SACRAMENTO /T» -Former Democratic Gov. Edmund G. Brown returned to the Capitol Thursday and conceded that Republican Gov. Ronald Reagan's popularity has increased because of his tough stand against campus violence. "The inadequacies of his administration are completely smothered by his stand against violence," Brown told a news conference. + * + * BROWN, WHO lost to Reagan in 1966, said: "I would say he would be a tough man to defeat" in 1970. "I think the people are inclined to give a governor a second chance if they think he is doing a good job," Brown said. Brown said he still is holding the door open to a 1970 comeback, either for governor or U.S. senator. However he said Assembly Democratic leader Jesse M. Unruh and San Francisco Mayor Joseph Alioto are the best possibilities for the Democratic governorship nomination, and Rep. John Tunney of $1,521 Cash Stolen Richard Town, 547 W. First St., told Long Beach police Thursday that his car, parked in a lot near Pier 10, was looted of $1,521 in cash from the glove compartment. Riverside senator. the hesl bet for TUNNEY, he said, would be "a great U.S. senator." Would he enter a governorship primary against Alioto and Unruh? "I don't think so, in view of the fact that either one of them would be a good governor," Brown said. "But in February. 1969, I wouldn't rule it out completely." BROWN disagreed with the flood of punitive bills against campus disorder proposed by legislators and Reagan, calling them " p u r e , unadulterated bunk." He said Reagan and the Legislature were repeating the mistake that he and lawmakers made in 1961, when they passed a series of tough narcotics laws -and then saw drug and narcotic use increase. "I just caved in on the passing of the narcotics penalties," said Brown. "They were absolutely unnecessary." Combined News Services SACRAMENTO /P -Lt. Gov. Ed Reinecke said Thursday that "Gov. Reagan did not at any time change his position" and agree to a proposed settlement of the San Francisco State College teachers' strike. In Los Angeles Wednesday, Reagan voted with a majority of state college trustees to accept new faculty discipline appeals procedures. A representative of the American Federation of Teachers union local included the new rules among the necessary conditions fur teachers to return to work. But Reinecke told a news conference, "Acceptance of those new rules has nothing to do with teachers' strike." He was asked if he had any objection if the new discipline rules helped end the strike. "I would like to see the teachers go back to work," Reinecke said. Reinecke said he called the news conference "to clarify misunderstandings" in published reports of the trustees' meeting. The news conference was held minutes after an announcement from Reagan's office disclosed the governor had replaced Louis Heilbron of San Francisco as a member of the trustees. Heilbron was a key figure in negotiations to end the six-week walkout. Reagan named William O. Weissich, 4S, San Rafael lawyer and former Marin County district attorney, as Heilbron's replacement. He also named E. Litton B I v a n s , Glendale, owner of an automatic ma- c h i n e manufacturering firm, as a member of the trustees, replacing Paul Spencer, San Dimas. Terms of both outgoing members' had expired. Reinecke disputed published newspaper and wire service reports that a 15-2 vote for establishing the grievance procedure for teachers constituted settlement of the San Francisco strike.

Sartori Ave. A had been under study for three years, was originated by the academic senate and "does not involve settlement of the strike." Ke repeated Reagan's statement at his Tuesday news conference that "there was no authorized negotiations" for the San Francisco strike because the strike was illegal. Reinecke said the original Heilbron committee was authorized only to hold "discussions" and not "negotiations" with lead- ers of the striking American 1'ederation of Teach- i ers. ; The trustees voted 13-5 Wednesday in favor of a motion by Reagan reaffirming the trustees' resolve not to negotiate with the strikers. The proposed settlement was announced earlier in the week. It had been worked out during a series of meetings between the committee headed by Heilbron, labor leaders and local civic leaders. Striking Teachers Meet-No Decision SAN FRANCISCO (UP!) -- Striking San Francisco State College teachers met for five hours Thursday to discuss going hack to work, hut a spokesman said at the end of the session they had not made up their minds. Gary Hawkins, president of the college local of the American Federation of Teachers, said another meeting would be held Sunday, "at which time we will decide where we stand." The AFT, representing about 300 of the college's 1,200 faculty members, reached a tentative settlement of its dispute earlier this week. The college Board of Trustees ratified a part of the settlement dealing with grievance procedure. The rest of the proposed settlement terms were left "in some doubt" according to Hawkins. He said the teachers were especially concerned about going back to work while police remain on the campus. The AFT strikes had linked a settlement of t h e i r dispute to a settlement of student strike demands. The student strike continues with no sign of an early si'lf.iement, ami the teachers now must decide whether to abandon the students and return to work. In order to obtain sanction for their strike from the San Francisco Labor Council, the union said its strike was strictly over faculty grievances and not tied to student demands. When asked whether the teachers would go back to work while the students remain on strike, Hawkins replied: "As long as the students are on strike and unsatisfied, the administration will keep police on the campus even though there has been no violence for a while. As long as that exists and free speech is impaired, we cannot go back." BILL.
