Yale won't divest South African holdings

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (UPI) - Yale
University trustees said yesterday they
have decided not to sell the university's
$175 million in stock in 69 American
corporations that do business in South
Africa.
The trustees, known as the Yale
Corp., said in a statement for release
yesterday they will instead use their
leverage as stockholders to encourage
an end to racial discrimination in that
country.
THE BOARD MADE a separate

decision on stock in American banks
and other financial institutions that
have dealings in South Africa. They
said the banks will be told not to in-
crease present loans or make new ones
to South Africa.
The trustees said the corporations
will be told to abide by the so-called
"Sullivan principles" to prohibit
discrimination in living and working
conditions among their South African
employees.
If the corporations do not follow the
guidelines drafted by black clergyman
Rev. Leon Sullivan, the trustees said

they then will consider selling that por-
tion of Yale's portfolio.
THE PRINCIPLES include ending
segregation in work and dining and
equality in employment and pay,
supervisory training and additional
supervisory jobs for non-whites and
improvements in housing, transpor-
tation, education, health and
recreation.

Students from several colleges, in-
cluding Dartmouth, Harvard and
Amherst, rallied at Yale in April,
demanding that their colleges divest
themselves of any stock in U.S. cor-
porations that do business in South
Africa.
Yalesaid its Advisory Committee on
Investor Responsibility will keep watch
over the university's South African in-
vestments.

The vice will tighten."
Proposition 13's passage prompted
extensive last-minute cuts in the state
budget as Brown and the Legislature

rates.
THE LEGISLATURE cut an ad-
ditional$500 million from the budget to
free more funds to aid local gover-
nments, and Brown vetoed an additonal
$38$.5 million from the $15.1 billion bill
the lawmakers sent to him Wednesday.
Brown said the money saved by
freezing state employee salaries and
welfare grants and his other budget
cuts will help local government reduce
layoffs of employees. The state is using
its surplus and funds saved from the
budget for a $5 billion rescue bill for
cities, counties and schools.
California's largest state employee
association immediately issued a
statement saying' employees are "bit-
ter and disheartened" at what it con-
sidered unnecessary cuts in pay raises.
Despite Brown's call for a freeze on
salary increases for public employees,
the Legislature included 2.5 per cent
raises for 224,000 state employees and
increases of 2.5 to 3.7 per cent for 2.1
million welfare recipients.
