18 The Arizona Republic ML nib Phoenix, Sat., Sept. 21, 1968 Black Panther lecture OKd at VC AP Wlrcphol* This Is P&rt Of Wall Street Crowd Of 10,000 That Vainly Waited For Francine Gottfried Yesterday Just an ordinary (43-25-37) little 'ol girl NEW YORK (UPI) - Francine Gottfried, the girl the girlwatchers watch on Wall Street, took the day off yesterday, and if the market didn't crash it buckled. Police estimated the crowd at 10,000 along the crooked streets near the New York Stock Exchange, on rooftops, FRANCINE GOTTFRIED Wall Street Figure in windows. The metal roofs of four cars crumpled under the .weight of staid stockbrokers who climbed on top for a better view. They waited in vain for Francine, a 21-year-old computer operator from Brooklyn whose 43-25-37 figure has driven Wall Street daffy. On Thursday, 5,000 turned out to watch her stroll in a tight yellow sweater and red skirt from the VBMT subway station to her job in a nearby bank. But for sanity's sake, she stayed home yesterday. "It's all crazy," the 5-foot- 4 brunette said. "These people have all the responsibility of handling millions of dollars and they act like they're out of their minds." Many of the 10,000 drank beer and munched hot dogs. Extra police were ordered in to control the good-natured crowd. Ticker tape floated from skyscrapers. "How could they do that? "Francine asked from her home. "I don't know them. I haven't done anything. You know, it was so bad yesterday, I was crying." She was rescued from the mob Thursday by two plainclothes policemen who pulled her to safety in a lobby and out a back door. I'm not going to work again until Wednesday," Fran- cine said. Her boss gave her time off to ease tension. "The bank which employs me is going to send a car for me," she said. "But they say I must try to find another way to get to work without using the subway station." Francine said she has had inquiries from film studios, talent agents and television shows, including a TV talk show. "They asked me to wear the same sweater, I wore yesterday and to bring in a knitted dress as well," Francine said. "It's insane. There are thousands of girls on Wall Street and they act as though I'm the only one.

"Why should they? I'm just an ordinary girl." Most of the 10,000 persons who caused traffic jams for blocks around the corner of Wall and Broad streets were men. But many women also waited to see Francine. "We're just as curious as the men are," said one pretty secretary. "We're just as nice as she is — just not as big." LOS ANGELES (UPI) the Board of Regents of the University of California yesterday rejected a demand by Gov. Ronald Reagan that they ban Black Panther leader Eldridge Cleaver from lecturing at the Berkeley oampus and voted to permit the militant "minister of information" to appear one time in a classroom. At a stormy open session at UCLA, the regents turned down Reagan's emotional plea that the people of California were as aroused as at any time in his memory at the prospect of Cleaver instructing students at a university supported by their taxes. REAGAN SAID bringing in Cleaver "made as much sense as it would have to invite the late Tommy Manville as a marriage counselor." Reagan warned that approval of Cleaver's appearance could lead to a legislative investigation of the University of California "from top to bottom." At a news conference after the session, Reagan was asked whether he considered the regents' action a repudiation of him. "Well, if it was a repudiation of me it was a repudiation of the people of California and of the whole legislature of California." lie said. "IF THERE WAS a victory, it was a pretty hollow one since the small faculty group wanted him 10 times and they're getting him once. They lost considerable, too," the governor added. Reagan said he would have to consider what further steps, if any, he might yet take to prevent Cleaver's appearance. The regents voted 10 to 8 for a motion proposed by President Charles Hitch, head of the nine.universities in the system, which in effect would permit Cleaver to make one appearance. It voted down, 9 to 9, a motion backed by Reagan which stated that Cleaver not be permitted to participate, instruct or teach any class on a campus of the University of California. CLEAVER ORIGINALLY. had been appointed by a faculty committee to deliver 10 lectures over a 10-week period at Berkeley. One of Reagan's most vehement backers was Superintendent of Public Instruction Max Rafferty, Republican candidate for U.S. senator, who characterized Cleaver as a "racist bigot" and said if he was approved it would demonstrate that the California educational system was in need of complete reform. The regents supporting the Hitch proposal to let Cleaver appear once made it plain they opposed him as a qualified lecturer, but felt it was a dangerous course to have the regents start banning individuals as guest lecturers. REAGAN SAID that of the first 4,500 communications he had received, only 13 supported the appearance by Cleaver. There were about 300 public spectators in the UCLA auditorium, many of them hippies, and they hissed and applauded in registering their opposition to Reagan and support of Cleaver's appearance. Six uniformed University of California police officers and a half-dozen plainclothesmen kept a watchful eye on the crowd, but there were no disturbances. Cleaver, an ex-convict, was in Los Angeles but did not appear at the campus, nor were any of his black panther adherents in evidence. HASSELBLAD HEADQUARTERS Arliofti't •r* Shop.
