TextCentral Coast Campus OK Full Speed (SOMEBODY GOOFED—It was apparent to travelers along the old Santa Cruz highway thiat someone doesn't know how to spell. A sign has been erected on a telephone pole near the proposed Cabrillo college site. The author has carefully painted the word, "Cabrio" on the directional sign. It wasn't known Monday who the misspelling culprit was.) BERKELEY (UPI) A study team Monday unfolded its blueprint for new campuses of the University of California and the state colleges to handle surging enrollments expected in the next decade. The team of educators, appointed to prepare a master plan for orderly expansion, recommended that new state colleges be built before 1965 in the Los Angeles International airport area and the San Bernardino-Riverside area. They approved proposals for new University of California campuses at La Jolla, Orange county and the Monterey-Santa Cruz-San Benito-San Mateo-Santa Clara general area. These university campuses, planners said, should be completed without delay and "in any event started not later than 1962." The study team's recommendations were presented to a liaison committee of the university's board of regents and the state board of education, which directs the 14 State colleges. Both boards were told by the 1959 legislature to set aside mutual suspicions and present a harmonious master plan 'to the 1960 session. The study team's working draft of the plan will be thrashed out here for three days, aad then will be submitted to the full boards here Dec. 18 for final approval before submission to the legislature. The survey team was reported "very near agreement" on the two thorniest issues between the state colleges and the university—whether the colleges should grant the doctorate and whether some form of budgetary control could be imposed over both systems. Team members were to meet here Monday night to smooth out the rough edges of their proposal before turning it over to the liaiison committee. Their plan also called for tighter admission requirements at both the university and the state colleges to siphon off some 50, 000 students a year to junior colleges. It called for development of new junior colleges in more than 20 areas throughout the state. Planners estimated that a new Inglewood area campus in Los Angeles would enroll 19, 900 students by 1975, and a new San Bernar- no-Riverside campus would handle 12, 800. They urged a continuing review of priorities for new state colleges and recommended that in 1965, close attention be paid to the Griffith park area of Los Angeles, the Redwood City area, Contra Costa county, Bakersfield, Monterey bay and the Ventura area. They said the Berkeley UC campus should not enroll more than 27, 500 students, and that some 19, 000 overflow students eventually would have to be diverted to Davis, to the proposed central coast campus and to two proposed small branch installations.
