She was 44. German leftists try to dictate campus policy By GEORGE VINE BONN (Reuter) Univer- sity professors in West Ger- many no longer live in an ivory tower. The temples of learning are more like belea- guered fortresses as the radi- cal minority of left-wing stu- dents pursue their "march through the institutions." Taking advantage of the wide degree of academic free- dom traditional in German university life and the pow- erlessness of the authorities to expel them, the New Left is openly trying to dictate what will be taught and who will teach it. The president of Frankfurt University, Erhard Kantzen- bach, recently cancelled all lectures and teaching in the economics classes for first- and second-year students, confessing he was unable to control the extremists. The president, a Social Democrat, was earlier forced to call in riot police to protect a professor of economics from Marxist students. HOWLED DOWN For weeks the radicals had prevented the professor from lecturing by making such a tumult that he could not be heard. They tore the micro- phone out of his hand, scat- tered his lecture papers in the air, threw stink bombs, shouted, screamed and kept up a rhythmic hand-clapping to drown his voice. What makes the situation ironic is that the professor, Wolfram Engels, 40, is a de- scendant of Friedrich Engels, the man who, together with Karl Marx, laid the founda- tions of communism in the 19th century. The present-day Engels holds different political and economic views from his fa- mous ancestor. At last Octo- ber s general elections he stood as a candidate for the conservative Christian Demo- cratic party. Ever since then he has been a marked man. Students wav- ing banners inscribed "Drive Out Engels With Marx" have invaded his lectures. In a re- cent newspaper interview, the professor revealed that his wife Marianne, who used to be one of his students, tele- phoned several times a day to find out if he was still un- harmed. GUARDED BY POLICE Since October he had been able to give only one lecture. His audience consisted of 25 students and 100 police while outside another 200 police with clubs, shields and crash barriers stood guaid in a cor- don around the building. "It sends me into a cold fury to see how a few radicals can destroy the he said. "My teaching value is practically nil. Nonetheless I am not going to give up." A second Frankfurt Univer- sity professor, psychologist Fritz Suellwold, who had been similarly treated by student- agitators for months, can- celled his lectures and said he was negotiating for a post at Mainz University. Frankfurt University has a long liberal and left-wing tra- dition and is located in the "red" state of Hesse which has been ruled by the Social Democratic party since the Second World War. Hesse has a particularly tolerant univer- sity law. SEEK STIFFER LAWS The Federation for Free- dom of Learning, formed by hundreds of professors and. lecturers alarmed at the trend, issued a statement in Bonn condemning "radical terror acts" by students at Frankfurt and calling' for changes in the university law so that students who use force to disturb the work of the uni- versity can be expelled. Frankfurt is only one of the hotbeds of political agitation. Heidelberg, Bonn, Munich, the Free University in West Berlin and many others all have their quota of radicals. In Lower Saxony, which has five universities and educa- tional institutes of the same level, the interior ministry said recently that the New term covering scores of Communist and Maoist or- near- ly all the student bodies al- though they form only a small minority of the total number of students. Kennedy No. 1 NEW YORK (AP) The Gallup and Harris polls both show Senator Edward Kennedy (Dem. Mass.) gaining strength as a potential candidate for the United States presidency in 1976. Pollster Louis Harris said Kennedy now leads Republican Vice-President Gerald Ford in popularity by 49 to 45 per cent. In November, Ford led Kennedy by 48 to 44 per cent.

By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) Two of tto most cantteaa vokea In the United State Senate have hem prMariftf the America! public for the growing possibility that their president will be pat on trial in the Senate for "high tat misdemeanors." Recent by Mike Minefield, leader of the Demo- cratic majority in the Senate, and by Robert Griffin, the Re- publican whip, are a sure indication that the tide of Mntiment hat turned In dramatic fashion President Niion in the last few wccltn Mansfield told reporters that he been talking to members of the House of Representatives and "they think the votes are there" to impeach the president. Griffin says the likelihood of impeachment "seems much greater today than it did a month or two ago." Until recently, the prevailing view in Washington was that the House would prove too timorous to vote impeachment, even if own judiciary committee ripnmmeadid it. House would away from an aetioB that mfalrt phwsje fee country Into months of laaderieas chaos. The change In opinion seems to have occurred without any of those heartftepping licHsnti that marked earlier slept In the Watergate saga, such as the firing of special prosecutor Archi- bald Cot or the disclosure of aa U-mteute gap in a crucial White House tape. No single action of the president's Is being dted now, al- though White House resistance to requests for additional tapes and documents for prosecutor Leon Jaworski and for the judiciary committee are reported to have ruled some con- gressmen. But congressional observers note that neither Mansfield nor Griffin give voice to wild speculation, nor do they tend to step ahead of colleagues on a sensitive issue. Their natural caution is> one reason for the respect each In his at of to reflect a carefel .Their staNmimli are .btttreated by fehMnsdfc MDWvWV MTO eVIVMj HI IMu Hflflf 10 1 trial of L_______ Andrew Johnson more than IN yean ago-aad preparing the ijonndwoit for a Senate trial of Richard Nlzon. The shift of congressional opinion has its iKstaialH aspects. The House judiciary committee has still not received all the evidence it says is needed, let alone weighed the evidence already in its hands. There is not even any agreement yet on which alleged pres- idential actions may fit the constitutional formula of "high crimes and misdemeanors."
