(AP) Staggered by the surprise firing of President Clark Kerr of the University of California, leaders of students on nine UC campuses planned mass meet- iogs today to decide student ac- tion in the crisis. Also, the quest begins for Kerr's successor. The Board of Regents, by a vote, last Friday ended the 8ti-year career of Kerr as president of the nation's biggest university system. Gov. Ronald Reagan, an ex-officio regent, voted against Kerr, 55. Reagan said during Ms elec- tion, campaign that Kerr permit- ted campus political activity in behalf of Reagan's Democratic opponent, then Gov. Edmund G. Brown.

The Morris fire was discov- ered about a.m. by a police- man who heard a window break from the heat. The two-story homed oat sec- tion contained a basketball court and auditorium section. No one was in the building at the time. Firewalls protected sections housing National Guard trucks, a war memorial collection and Morris police and fire depart- ments. Police alerted firemen and volunteers and area residents when the frozen village fire siren failed to operate. Firemen from nearby Hancock assisted Morris volunteers in fighting the blaze. William Myers, Morris City manager, gave a preliminary loss estimate of Cause of the blaze was not known. In Mound, near Minneapolis, Mrs. Louis M. Rasmussen, 58, died in a fire that destroyed the interior of her home Saturday night. A coroner's report said she died of smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Mrs. Earl Rokala broke a win- dow, climbed inside her burning home and handed her daughter Kathleen, 18 months, to Verline Belfanz, 57, Hamel, who had been working on a nearby barn.

Should protests of this kin materialize, it would be the firs time in two demonstration wracked years that Kerr wou: hear militant student support himself. He has come under fir for the demonstrations tha have hit Berkeley, and som believe this unrest contribute to the regents' decision to fir him. Most of the student leaden appeared to take Mclntosh discussion-first view.

Japanese newsmen, quoting Peking wall posters, said Chou's announcement at rally in Pe- king Sunday was the first state- ment by a top government offi- cial that troops would be used against Mao's foes. The posters said Chou de- clared: "The People's Libera- tion Army is the most important tool of the dictatorship of the proletariat. It will resolutely suppress the handful of counter, revolutionary elements who are trying to destroy the proletarian great cultural revolution." Japanese correspondents In Peking also reported purge chairman Chen Po-ta and Mao's wife, Chiang Ching, had ordered the people of the capital to es- tablish a revolutionary city gov- ernment composed of workers, peasants, soldiers, revolu- tionary students and teachers. Quoting wall posters, the cor- respondents said 40 Maoists were injured, 10 captured and many were missing after a clash with students and workers supporting President Liu Shao- chi. in the Manchurian industrial city of Chang Chun Jan. 21. The posters said the "reactionaries" were assembling a force of 000 persons from the Manchuri- an provinces of Kirin, Liaoning, and Heilunkiang to give battle to "revolutionary rebels" con- verging on Chang Chun. Chinese arriving in Hong Kong from Kwangtung said Mao's opponents there had been encouraged by reports that an anti-Mao army of peasants, workers and former soldiers had seized control of much of neighboring Kiangsi Province. Western Kong said sources In Hong there were strong indications of sharply increased opposition to Mao in some areas of Kwangtung but cautioned that the reported "army" prob- ably was no more than a group of Mao's opponents armed with clubs and hand weapons fash- ioned from farm and factory tools. The arrivals from Canton also reported continued fighting be- tween anti-Mao and pro-Mao forces in Kiangsi Province and the arrest or capture of some anti-Mao leaders in Nanchang, provincial capitol fo Kiangsi. They said the Kiangsi news had been received in Canton, via radio broadcasts from Nan- chang Sunday night. The government radio In Kiangsi, organized some of China's earliest Com- munist uprisings 40 years ago, said Sunday that Mao's enemies have won control over much of the province after violent clash- es in which a number of persons were hurt. The broadcast de- manded the "instant arrest" of what it called an army of anti- Maoists but admitted that police and regular army units were not obeying the order. Peking's official New China News Agency, quoting the Com- munist party newspaper Peking People's Daily, said party chairman Mao's five-month-old of his foes was meeting atmosphere has become tense Opposition parties have been unsuccessful in their attempt to get the elections postponed for a year. The leading presidential can didate is Gen. Anastasio (Tachi- tp) Somoza, of the ruling Na- tionalist Liberal party. He is one of the two heirs to the oldesi political dynasty in Latin Amer- ica. His father, who was assas- sinated in 1956, founded it in 1932 with U.S. support. Tachito's brother, Luis, is an ex-presi- dent. Tachito also is boss of the Na- tional Guard, which serves as the country's police force and army. Aguero, an eye specialist, withdrew from the 1963 presi- dential contest to leave the field clear for Rene Schick Gutierrez, the candidate of the Somoza- controlled Liberal party. Guerrero, one of three vice presidents, was picked to serve out the term after Schick died of a heart attack Aug. 3. Presidents and members of :heir immediate family are >arred from the presidency for he succeeding term, so when Somoza completed his erm in 1963, the Somozas chose Schick to fill in for the next four Aguero, who has a following among the peasants, has ex- pressed concern that the elec- ion will be fraudulent, but he nsists he will not pull out again. A third candidate is Alejandro Abaunza, a lawyer, who was hosen by another Conservative iarty which Aguero's group laims is a "legal fiction" reated by the government par- y to divide the Conservatives.

He also asked Congress ti revise rate increased already scheduled, going from 4.4 to 4.1 per cent in 1969 and from 4.85 per cent in 1973 to 5 per cent. Johnson recommended thai the amount Social Security re- cipients can earn without losing benefits be increased to a year and that the amount above that for which a benefici- ary can retain in payments for each in earnings be in- creased to The increased benefits hac been sketched in broad outline in Johnson's State of the Union message.

The State ofthe Union mes- sage did not go into the tax in- Tease to pay for the increased benefits. The proposed increase in So- cial Security taxes would in- crease the maximum amount paid by an Individual to in 1968 and to in 1969. Johnson had announced ear- ier that his proposals would cost billion during the first year. The tax rise is expected to come under fire in Congress, especially from Republicans vho have urged an 8 per cent ncrease plus a cost-of-living escalator clause without raising axes.

The administration spokes- men are expected to run into critical questioning from both hard line and soft line foreign policy advocates. In advance of the Foreign Re- ations Committee session, Sen- ate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said he hopes tha committee will act "on the merits of the convention" and not be swayed by a mail cam- paign mounted by conservative groups opposing the agree- ments. The committee approved the convention regulating U.S.-So- viet consular affairs in 1965. But Uansfield said in an interview hat he held up Senate action 'on my own responsibility1' in the last Congress. Mansfield tald he had been concerned then that any chance or the Soviet Union to bring tha Vietnam war to the negotiating able "would be dashed if the debate became too bitter." But he acknowledged that it ras doubtful the measure could iave won the two-thirds approv- al required for the Senate to give its consent. Results of the consular debate may indicate how receptive the Senate is this year to other ad- ninistration attempts to build 'ridges to the East, such as the ecently signed space treaty ind proposals for increasing trade with the Soviet bloc. The State Department re- eased Friday the text of letters xchanged last fall between tusk and FBI Director J. Ed- ar Hoover. The Hoover letter, Ithough carefully worded, ap- eared to indicate that he no onger opposes the consular con- ention. When Hoover testified before House committee in 1965, he aid the agreement could make le FBI's work more difficult in ealing with spies and sabo- eurs. Many critics of the conven- on, which includes a contro- ersial provision granting diplo- atic immunity to consular of- cials, pointed to Hoover's ear- er objections as reasons for >posing the agreement.
