Long Island Chancellor Plans
Review of Provost Incident

Chancellor A. Gordon Hoxie of
the Long Island University Brook-
lyn campus yesterday agreed after
a meeting with students and fac-
ulty to reconsider acceptance of
the resignation of the school's
! provost, William M. Birenbaum.
Birenbaum admitted that he re-
signed in a dispute with the
chancellor over tuition and fee
The action followed demonstra-
tions Monday by 1,500 students
against the departure of Biren-

baum in which Hoxie's coat was
torn. Students say he has infused
the center with a new spirit, abol-
ished dress codes, and advocated
fr'ee debate.
Dr. Hoxie will make a state-
ment next Monday on the future
status of Birenbaum, according to
student leader Dennis Georgeoglu,
who participated in the unruly,
Facufty members had voted
145-38 Monday to approve a reso-
lution requesting Hoxie to rescind
his acceptance of Birenbaum's


During the demonstration stu-
dents chanted, "We want Bill,"
and harassed the chancellor as
he left his chauffeur driven car.
Afterwards Hoxie said, "This is a
day of infamy in the life of the
student body." He did not elabo-
rate. He called for a meeting with
Birenbaum as soon as possible.
Denies Duress
Hoxie denied that "duress was
used to make the provost resign"
and said; "It was an action taken
in the best interests of all parties."
Dr.. Birenbaum's resignation
brought into the open what many
Istudents and some faculty mem-
bers regard as basic differences
between the two officials over
such' matters as tuition, salaries
and building plans.
Although both officials have re-
fused to comment on their differ-
ences, it was known that Biren-E
baum opposes tuition hikes with-
out which Hoxie claims the uni-
versity will "have a $3 million
Nears Ivy League
The tuition is presently $1,580,
fairly close to that charged .by
most Ivy League schools.
Another source of friction re-
portedly has been over salaries
and also over building plans for
the Brooklyn Center campus,
which serves about 7,300 students.I
Birenbaum also favors the con-
struction of a library, that he en-
visions as the focal point of the
campus and of service also to the
downtown Brooklyn community.
Hoxie, however, has indicated he
would be more impressed if con-
struction were already under way.
Police called the Monday dem-
onstration little more than "youth-
ful exuberance." Students at the
protest had agreed, displaying
placards saying, "Birenbaum is
fresh and everyone else is tired,"
and, "Hoxie is an administrative7
