Judge Martin Pulich gave the 36-year-
old Newton one week to prepare a case
opposing the bail hike.
Newton was freed Thursday night on
$50,000 bail in the Santa Cruz County
bar brawl case.
The murder case involves the death
four years ago of a 17-year-old
prostitute on an Oakland street. He is
charged with assault for allegedly
pistol whipping his tailor in his pen-
thouse apartment.
Newton, chief theoretician of the
Black Panther Party, returned to
Oakland last year to face the murder
and assault charges. He had jumped

bail and spent 2 years of self-imposed
exile in Cuba.
Santa Cruz officials refused yester-

stressed that the new program has two
"unique dimensions" since it will affect
all departments in LSA, high schools
and junior colleges as well as upper-
level instruction in each department.
Fader explained that the rigorous
writing assessment will encourage high
schools to better prepare their students
for college-level writing courses. He
said communities should start putting
pressure on secondary schools to
decrease the teachers' normal load
from 150 students to 100 to give pupils
more individual attention.
Next year will be an "experimental
year" for the ECB program. Students
with writing disabilities will be recom-
mended for tutorials taught by
specially-trained teachers, but not
required to attend. Barbra Morris,
assistant director of the ECB, ex-
plained that under the new program the
tutorials will be mandatory for Univer-
sity students placed in them, because
"those students who need tutorial help
most tend to seek it least."
JOHN RUSS, director of the Coalition
for theUse of Learning Skills (CULS), a
program which gives academic support
to disadvantaged and minority studen-
ts, said many CULS students who
haven't had proper writing instruction
in high school will attend the optional

tutorials this fall.
According to Michael Clark of the
English department, members of the
ECB will spend this summer deciding
"what makes the best essays better
than others," so that the faculty will
have some standard criteria for
judging students' papers.
The program has essentially five par-
ts: assessment, tutorial, introductory
composition, writers' workshop, and
upperclass writing. Barbey Dougherty
of the English Department's Writing
Workshop, a service which provides in-
dividual writing help to students of any
level, said the philosophy of the
workshop is "developmental, as op-
posed to the remedial."
Dougherty explained that the
technique used in the workshop is one of
asking the student questions about his
or her writing, helping students help
"A writer has to focus attention on
the process of writing as well as the
product," said Dougherty. "Writing is a
social act where the writer tries to
reconstruct for the reader his image of
Fader said he blames society for
many students' poor writing. "What
television has done to students is made

Dayan: 'I'm
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -
Moshe Dayan stormed out of a news
conference yesterday after a
questioner implied the Israeli foreign
minister could be labeled a terrorist.
"I am no terrorist. No one ever told
me I'm a terrorist," Dayan retorted af-
ter a journalist from the radical London
newspaper Time Out referred to
charges that Dayan and Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin engaged in
terrorist acts in their early years.

no terrorist'
Both were members of Jewish un-
derground organizations in the 1940s
before the end of British control of
Palestine and Israel's independence.
After that question, Dayan took one
more - telling a reporter Israel seized
the West Bank of the Jordan River
"because King Hussein of Jordan en.
tered the 1967 war despite our war-
nings. There was no alternative" -
then cut short the news conference
saying, "Thank you and goodbye," and
stalked out.
