The hushed courtroom was packed with students and pro- lessors from the Berkeley campus as Kerr testified coolly and confidently for two hours. He testified on his activities during last fall's student-administration crisis that led up to the Dec. 3 Unruh, Burns to launch probe of UC SACR.AMENTO (UPI) — Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Unruh and Senate leader Hugh Bums today announced they would shortly launch a legislative investigation of higher education, especially the University of California. The two top Democrats told their joint news conference last week that (hey wanted the investigation but would not proceed if the plcin encountered widespread opposition. Today, Bums said that he had received "considerable encour- ascment from the public at large and individual members of the (university) Board of Regents." The president pro tern of the upper house said the individuals represented "a good cross-seclion of the board. Unruh, a regent himself, said that he also had heard favorably from regents "ranging broadly from liberal to conservative." He also said that he had heard of no opposition from University P r e s i dent Clark Kerr. Unnih said the necessary resolution was being dratted and would be introduced shortly. The original plan called for a on campus sit-in which resulted in 773 arrests. The 155 defendants are bang tried in municipal court as a representative group for the approximately 750 persons who have pleaded innocent to charges of trespassing, resisting arrest and failure to disperse from an unla-ttntul assembly. Defense attorney Stanley Golde aggressively questioned Kerr, but many of his questions were ruled out of order by Judge Rupert Crittenden, who is hearing the case mthout a jury. Kerr, $45,000 - a - year chief executive of the vast nine-cam pus university, said he felt the Berkeley administration had been wrong in closing off a strip of the campus near Satli- er Gate to the students \vithout first consulting the students. Kerr was in Japan at the time. He testified that as university president he had control over campus police only "in a very indirect fashion." When the sit- ins' attorneys asked him if he could order the police to make arrests, the question was over- raled by Judge Crittenden. joint-house study, completed in 1967. to be com- TREASURE HOUSE Your unused furniture or appliances will find a ready market through Classified Ads. Elizobeth inspects British troops SENNELAGER, Germany (UPI) — Queen Elizabeth Wednesday inspected British and Canadian armed forces in Germany on the eve of her visit to West Berlin and her first look at the Communist waU. The announced trip to the divided city today had brought Communist charges that West German politicians are using the royal visit to Berlin for political purposes. They warned it could have "severe consequences" but observers predicted no Communist harassment of the queen during her five-hour visit to West Berlin. The Queen is to return to Hannover Thursday night and then leave Hamburg for home Friday to end her historic 11- day visit to Germany. By DE VAN L. SHUMWAY United Press International S.A.CRAMENTO (UPI) — The Assembly Oiminal Procedure Committee voted today to liberalize California's abortion laws. For the first time, a bUl reached the Assembly floor to allow abortions when a prospective mother's life was not in jeopardy. The action came after a four- hour hearing that lasted until after midnight and despite a plea from a Lutheran minister that to do so would be to consent to murder. By a divided voice vote, the committee cleared a bill by Assemblyman Anthony C. Beilenson, D-Beverly HiUs, legalizing abortions in cases where the mother was a victim of forcible or statutory rape or where the child's birth woiUd "gravely impair" the mother's physical health. Present law allows abortions only in cases where necessary to preserve the mother's life. Otherwise, abortion is punishable by two to five years in prison. Kov. Amim H. Polster, a Lutheran, minister from Daly City, who opposed the bill, told the committee that the "ultimate question was when does life begin—at the moment of conception, at birth or sometime in between?" Pike Approves Among the parade of witnesses favoring the bill was the Rt. Rev. James A. Pike, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of California. He said that the "positive factors in terms of the well bemg of the persons involved far outweight any objections" to the bill. Rabbi Sanford Rosen of San Mateo also testified in favor of the bill. He said the Jewish tradition maintains a baby is not living imtil it is actually bom. But before sending the measure to an imcertain fate on the floor, the committee watered it down at Beilenson's request to limit abortions for statutory rape victims to those under 14 years of age. The bill also was modified to trim out provisions that would have allowed abortions when the birth endangered the mother's mental health. Other action in 'the legislature: Good smaritan — The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a "good Samaritan" bill, setting up a procedure for the state to repay citizens for losses they might incur in helping prevent a crime or catch a criminal. It was by Sen. George Miller Jr., D-Martinez, and now goes to the Finance Committee. Welfare — Senate Social Welfare cleared a biU to pump $25.7 million in new state money into counties to alleviate local taxes for welfare. The bill by Sen. James A. Cobey, D- Merced, went to finance. Reapportionment — Assemblyman Don A. AUan, D - Los Angeles, made public an opinion of the legislature's lawTers saying that the Senate - approved reapportionment plan "presents certain constitutional questions" but the legislative counsel refused to say categorically that the courts would not uphold it at least on an interim basis. Inheritance— Senate Judiciary Tuesday night cleared a bill to overhaul the state's inlieritance tax collection system. The bill, by Sen. Cobey, was backed by Controller Alan Cranston, who now appoints the appraisers, tlie sj-stem has been characterized as a built-in i)olitical ma- chme for the controller.

The force would be available to take action in fast moving events," he said. Rusk told a news conference that the United States was encouraged by the fact that the Communist threat had decreased on the island. The secretary declared tlial the Communist threat in the Dominican Republic had been "substantially reduced but not entirely eliminated." He said he was "encouraged to beUeve" tliat most Dominicans now realize their problem must be settled by "discussion, and not violence." The secretary expressed hope that a meeting of the OAS here Thursday, which he and several foreign ministers of other states will attend, would make progress on both political US planes attack Horth Viet Ham and military problems involved in bringing order out of chaos. Rusk rejected suggestions that the United States might have "over-reacted" by branding the Dominican rebellion Communist - controlled" three weeks ago and then watering down this position. He said it would be foUy to underestimate what might have been done in a condition of chaos "by a few highly organized people who know what they are about." Rusk contended that the United States had support from other foreigners for its extreme reaction — the sendmg in of more than 20,000 troops — to early events in Santo Domingo.

Meanwhile, U.S. military authorities pressed an investigation into the misdirected American jet attack on a South Vietnamese outpost near the border with North Viet Nam. More than 24 hours after the accidental raid, officials said they were unable to ascertain whether the planes were Navy craft based on carriers in the South China Sea or land-based Air Force jets. The attacking planes strafed the Vietnamese outpost with 20 mm cannon fire, wounding five government soldiers and damaging two bulldozers. Almost 40 American planes were in the air over North Viet Nam Tuesday for a series of raids against Communist transportation and fuel storage targets. Thurs., Fri.
