"MY FEELING in taking this action
on my own is not in violation of the law.
I have not put myself in jeopardy," he
Gold also said he doesn't think his
position is in conflict with the Univer-
sity's stand on the issue.
"I don't feel I'm in opposition to
University policy (on providing
replacement funds). The University is
doing what it thinks is proper," he said.
GOLD'S WORK finding alternative
funds has been independent of the civil
liberties board he heads, but he will
recommend that members support his
proposal at a, meeting Friday in the
Fleming Administration Building.
In May, the board wrote a letter to
University officials and the faculty

port a repeal of the law in Congress.
Since the law was enacted a year ago,
University officials have kept a low
profile on strongly criticizing it,

has previously criticized the law for
being an administrative burden and
inappropriately making the University

stronger stand such as backing a
Unlike other schools nationwide such
as the University of California, Yale
and Stanford Universities, which have
moved to replace lost federal aid with
their own funds, University officials
have refused to take such action.
University officials have maintained
that using University funds to replace
lost federal aid would be unfair to those
students who comply with the law.
Yet officials say they support Gold's
action. "If private sources want to sup-
port students, that's terrific," said Billy
Frye, the University's vice president
for academic affairs and provost.
Frye, who called the law a "lousy
regulation," said it would be inap-
propriate for the University to circum-
vent a federal law.

But the Soviet propaganda effort is

Leonid Zamyatin, and Deputy Foreign
Minister Georgi Kornienko.
Throughout, the Soviet propaganda
approach was "a tried and true one,"
the American diplomat said.
