It appeared a case of school property defacement, likely the work of a prankster. Years ago, an assistant coach at Claremont McKenna College came upon an old desk while cleaning out a weight room in the athletic department. The culprit had carved into the wood, the way lovebirds might scrawl a heart into a tree. Except this inscription was curious: it read "I Love This College" and was signed "John Zinda." The assistant reported what he thought was an act of mockery to the football coach.

As board chairs and presidents of the six Claremont Colleges, we salute the policy recommended in your comprehensive editorial. We endorse the editorial's message: Full funding for Cal Grants is surely in the best interests of both the taxpayers and California students. We would like to make two additional points to augment the editorial's persuasive arguments. First, the cost savings associated with using Cal Grants to encourage students to attend the 68 accredited private colleges and universities in the state is understated in the editorial.

In an unusual investment move, Claremont McKenna College, a tiny, private liberal arts school near Pomona, has purchased a $5-million stake in Irvine Co., Orange County's largest landowner. Earlier this year in a confidential prospectus sent to potential investors, Howard P. Marguleas, an Irvine Co. director since 1977, said he was selling his 5.05% minority stake in the privately held company--shares for which he was seeking about $94 million--to raise money he needed to meet other obligations.

Presidents of private colleges and universities in California were paid handsomely in 1995-96, yet none of them commanded as much as USC football coach John Robinson's compensation package of $505,016. Nor did they earn as much as the leaders of many Eastern schools--or even some professors, particularly in medical schools--according to a nationwide survey of federal tax returns by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Here are the cash compensation and benefits for the top 10 private college presidents in the nation and for some of California's higher education leaders.
