Bob Berdahl's office is in an ivory tower. Not just any ivory tower, either, but the landmark 307-foot University of Texas tower. The one that served as a perch for the crazed gunman who killed 16 people and injured 31 others during a random shooting spree in 1966. If that's a daunting image--the sort of architectural barrier that could symbolize an administrator's distant relationship with his school--don't tell Berdahl.

Wrapping up a seven-year fund-raising campaign, UC Berkeley announced last week that it has raised $1.44 billion--hundreds of millions of dollars more than the initial goal. Berkeley Chancellor Robert M. Berdahl called the sum "the largest amount ever raised by a public university," but acknowledged that UCLA soon may shatter that record if it reaches its five-year campaign goal of $1.6 billion by 2002.

Re "Physics Program's Star Dims at Berkeley," July 14: I am a retired UC Davis biology professor. The decline of physics at UC Berkeley is only one manifestation of a problem that pervades the entire University of California system. In all their wisdom, a long succession of UC administrators has followed the line that bigger is better, continually adding campuses to the system until it is now one of the largest in the world. In this effort, they lost sight of the fact that no state, nor country for that matter, can afford to support more than two or three top-level campuses.

White applicants to the University of Texas Law School in 1992 were unconstitutionally discriminated against by an affirmative action policy that evaluated minorities separately, a federal judge has ruled. U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks upheld the school's right to use affirmative action but said that it "does not imply that the individual rights of non-minorities should fall by the wayside or be ignored."
