Stanford University's Gerhard Casper was the fourth-highest-paid president in the nation in the 1994-95 school year, according to an annual survey of private colleges and universities released today by the Chronicle of Higher Education. Casper's total compensation reached $527,533 in that year partly because the university reimbursed him for capital gains taxes he paid after selling a house in Chicago, where he worked previously.

The Los Angeles Board of Education will be asked today to ratify a $195,000 severance package for former chief operating officer Allen Solomon, who left the giant school system after only two months, a district source said. Supt. Roy Romer, who declined to confirm the amount, said a payout is necessary because Solomon gave up his job as an associate vice chancellor at UCLA to run the district's business operations.

The board voted 4 to 1 for the three-year pact, which covers principals, assistant principals and some central office administrators.

The best paid jobs in state government are at the University of California, particularly those held by the school's premier physicians, several of whom had annual incomes above $500,000 last year. The university president, the chancellors at the nine university campuses, hundreds of physicians and other professors, and scores of top administrators are included on a list of university faculty and staff who were paid more than $100,000 in 1994.

The UC Board of Regents on Friday decided to eliminate three of its nine meetings each year, but postponed any action on how to handle salaries until next month, so that Gov. Gray Davis can review proposals before the board. "The governor asked that we hold off," said John Davies, chairman of the Board of Regents, adding that he would abide by those wishes as a courtesy to the state's chief executive.

Salaries for the presidents of top private colleges and universities are pushing well into six figures, with two surpassing the half-million-dollar mark, according to a survey to be released Monday by the Chronicle of Higher Education. That kind of pay is rare, however. It's for those who run complex, prestigious schools. Even then, experts say, it's still well below comparable salaries in the corporate, profit-making world.

Desperate to solve this school district's budget crisis, the acting superintendent has offered to have 20% slashed from his $8,000 monthly pay, while other workers have volunteered to take 5% cuts. Laguna Beach Unified School District officials face a Nov. 30 deadline to resolve a $1.2-million budget deficit or see the county take over the district's finances.

Hundreds of teachers, bus drivers and lunchroom workers went on strike Monday, protesting a $30,000 raise for the city school superintendent at a time of meager pay increases for other school system employees. Many of the system's 75 schools were virtually empty as teachers picketed the school board office. School officials said 1,264 of the 2,100 to 2,200 teachers in the system were absent--as were about 30,000 of its 38,000 students.

The UC Board of Regents today will consider raises of $20,000 or more for each of its nine chancellors and $40,000 apiece for senior vice presidents, all of whom make more than California's governor. Six-figure salaries are always a touchy topic at a public university, which receives an annual infusion of money from state taxpayers. Even so, the regents will also revisit the question of how much they, as defenders of the public purse, should be concerned about such salaries.

The University of California handed out salary raises averaging 18% for its chancellors last week and the California State University system handed out raises averaging 10% to its campus presidents. The pay hikes, university officials said, were needed because the salaries of UC and Cal State leaders lag behind those offered by comparable institutions elsewhere in the nation. *--* University of California Chancellors Campus Old Salary New Salary J.
