Issue Statements To
Protest Regents, Fight
Reagan's Budget Cuts
By The Associated Press
BERKELEY-University of Cali-
fornia students began to nobilize
last night to fight Gov. Reagan's
proposals for a state budget cut
and condemn the' firing of Clark
The mood of-discontent was re-
flected by the actions of student
leaders who held meetings on all
nine campuses yesterday. Buttons
reading "Don't blame me, I voted
for Brown" were in evidence.
Students at Berkeley last night
passed a five part resolution and
called on the faculty to follow suit
today. The resolution demands
that the regents:
-issue a statement that the
regents affirm their confidence in
the administration, the faculty,
and students in 'olving problems
peculiar to each campus;
-enact future changes in ad-
ministrative personnel only after
consultation with representatives
of the university;
-support continued free higher
education within the university;
-maintain the present univer-
sity budget 'at present levels if
not higher; and
-maintain present admissoas
In another unanimous action, the
Berkeley students sent letters to
regents who voted to fire Kerr
condemning their actions as "pre-
cipitous and irresponsible." The
letters praised Kerr as one of the
pation's "leading educators and
claimed the resulting damage will
take years to repair."
To pro-Kerr regents, they sent
"admiration for courageous and
responsible attitude" and conclud-
ed with the words "We trust your
sanity has prevailed,"
A press conference was sched-
uled for tomorrow in Los Angeles
which will bring together the stu-
dent leaders of all the campuses.
Classroom boycotts or a one-day
strike are planned for today in
protest. Demonstrations yesterday
were minor.
The Berkeley Associated -Stu-
dent Organization has, reserved
the steps of Sproul Hall for a
noon rally today and has called
for an all-day "silent vigil" on be-
half of Kerr.
Meanwhile, the regents have al-
ready begun a search for. Kerr's
successor. 'They have named a
screening committee, but no action

Reagan follows through with his
budget cuts and there is no tuition
charge or cut in admissions, the
quality of instruction at the
school will tumble because of the
lack of adequate funds. On the
other hand, if Reagan does not
cut the budget his campaign
promise to cut state spending
drastically will be violated.
The irony of this adamant re-
sistance to Reagan's tuition pro-
posal is that most state universi-
ties accept as a matter of course
that tuition will be charged stu-
As it is now students who ar'e
state residents are charged no
tuition but pay about $240 per
academic year in incidental fees.
Although Reagan initially talked

about charging $400 tuition for
students le is now hedging on
that figure.
Administration officials are still
afraid that the $234 million allo-
cated to the regents in his pro-
posed budget includes $22 million
from tuition and $20 million from
special regents funds.
This would mean that the "real"
state allocation would amount to
only $192' million. This year the
university requested a "real" allo-
cation of $278 million. Last year
the system received $240 'million.
Who ever wins the current bat-
tle over educational policies, it
is clear that the school is deeply
embroiled , in state politics and
that the autonomy of the univer-
sity system will suffer irreparable
