The gathering of about 300 Latino professors, administrators and students from the UC system ended with militant warnings. "Something must be done (to get better Latino representation)," said Roberto P.

There is an intelligent solution to the teaching assistants' complaints at the University of California: adjunct faculty. We hold PhDs, we are not apprentices, we are experienced and flexible. We are many; many the products of the UC system, especially the humanities and social sciences. And we earn about $18,000 a year, about what UC spends on TAs. THURBER D. PROFFITT PhD Adjunct, History Department Cerritos College

Rather than uselessly attempting to force Chancellor Jack Peltason to break away from the UC system's policy of allowing only married students to reside in the family housing complex, why don't they address the basis of the problem and lobby the state Legislature to legalize the marriage of gays and lesbians?

Re "Reagan and the fall of UC," Opinion, May 10 Seth Rosenfeld argues that then-Gov. Ronald Reagan's opposition to the 1960s radicalization of the University of California campuses - Berkeley in particular - was the main driver in the decline of the UC system. He overlooks that this very radicalization has diminished the value of a UC education. In the 1950s, when the UC system was at its peak, students were "well groomed and complacent" (to use Rosenfeld's words). They were in college to learn, not to protest.

Congratulations to Sadia Saifuddin, who will be the first Muslim to serve as student representative to the University of California Board of Regents. Her resume for the post is a strong one: Since arriving at Berkeley, she has worked to increase the amount of financial aid available to students, to secure funding for the UC Berkeley Food Pantry and, as head of the student Senate's finance committee, to allocate money to student groups. But there's one glitch. She is also a critic of Israel.

The UC Board of Regents voted Friday to establish a humanities think tank at UCI, the second approved for the university in three months. The regents, meeting in Riverside, unanimously agreed to a proposal by UC President David Gardner to create a new Critical Theory Institute at UCI. The institute stems from a campus study group begun at UCI about five years ago. The cost, now about $45,000, will be absorbed by the entire UC system.
