As head of the small liberal arts college in Eagle Rock, Gilman has pursued an exhaustive schedule of travel and fund-raising aimed at bringing a measure of Ivy League status to a school once considered a place where good local students could find a homier alternative to USC.

Moved by concern about AIDS, Occidental College is joining a small circle of colleges and universities that have installed condom dispensers in men's and women's restrooms. Next week, workers at the Eagle Rock campus will bolt 54 condom vending machines to restroom walls in the student union, library, athletic building and residence halls. The condoms, at 50 cents each, will generate enough income to pay for the dispensers, said Ann Stromquist, associate dean of students.

Occidental College faculty members are pressing for removal of two 35-foot-high iron crosses on exterior walls of the campus chapel as part of an effort to fully secularize the school. "It's not a rejection of Christianity or an anti-religious move," said the Rev. Doug Gregg, campus chaplain, a Protestant who supports the removal. "It's simply one of public presentation . . . an honesty and fairness issue."
