Administrators at Pomona College were back in their offices Wednesday after students ended a two-day occupation of Alexander Hall that secured a commitment from the five Claremont Colleges to push minority recruitment for faculty positions. A group of students who seized the administration building and slapped on banners and signs declaring the offices closed "due to racism" vacated the premises at 1 a.m. Wednesday after a series of negotiating sessions with college administrators.

Juan David DeLara, a student at Pitzer College, misrepresents a great deal about Pomona College in his article, "Where Affirmative Action Has Failed to Mute White Power" (Campus Correspondent, March 12). One would never guess from his report that the percentage of Pomona's permanent faculty positions held by minorities has risen from 7% to 17% in the last decade, or that the percentage of such positions held by women has risen from 22% to 33%. In a small college that normally hires only a few people each year for permanent faculty positions, this is a remarkable rate of growth.

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.

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.
