The Compton College Board of Trustees voted Wednesday to extend college President Warren Washington's contract by only one year instead of the usual three, prompting the threat of a recall by citizens angered by the action. Targeted by the recall would be board President Emily Hart-Holifield and recently elected members Ignacio Pena and Kent Swift. The three voted for the shortened contract over the protests of dozens of speakers at an emotional 6 1/2-hour meeting attended by about 300 people.

The Compton Community College Board of Trustees has voted to place beleaguered President Warren A. Washington on paid administrative leave while it investigates how hundreds of thousands of federal dollars were mismanaged and misspent at the college. The Tuesday night vote makes Washington the fifth administrator to be placed on paid leave since a Coopers & Lybrand audit released last month found improper spending of money earmarked for low-income students.

The embattled president of Compton College spends a lot of Sundays speaking to packed audiences at local churches. Warren A. Washington's message is usually the same--that the college is doing a good educational job for its community and that he deserves to stay on as its president. "Everywhere I go people stop to shake my hand," says Washington. "I feel like running for political office." In fact, he is at the center of a storm that threatens his job.

Dorothy Warren Knight, 55, one of three daughters of the late U.S. Chief Justice Earl Warren, died of cancer Sunday at her home in Falls Church, Va. She had suffered multiple sclerosis for the last 20 years. Mrs. Knight was a native of Oakland, Calif., and a graduate of UCLA. For many years in the late 1940s and early '50s, when their father was governor of California, the social activities, engagements and marriages of the three Warren girls were dutifully reported in the Western press.
