SF State Set to Open And Stay Open Today

SAN FRANCISCO--Gov. Ronald Reagan said last night that San Francisco State College should be kept open "at the point of bayonet if necessary."

The college, which opens today after a three-week Christmas recess, was the scene of almost daily violence and police confrontation during the first two weeks of December.

"This confrontation must be won," said Reagan.

Acting college president S. I. Hayakawa announced over the weekend a ban on rallies in the central campus area, while setting aside the athletic field for rallies by permit. He said that police would be called only if classes are disrupted, but that some officers will be stationed inside several buildings.

The violence, in which more than 80 were arrested and four seriously injured, was touched off by demands of the Black Students Union and the Third World Liberation Front for creation of an autonomous division of ethnic studies.
