SAM MILLER TALLAHASSEE Fla UPI The state's 28 community colleges are pleading with Florida residents as well as the state legislature in an effort to get more money but the tion subcommittee of the Senate Ways and Means Committee sees little chance in heeding the pleas noting the money just ain't there The Florida Association of Community Colleges has purchased advertising in the state's major newspapers noting as many as students will be denied admission next year unless the schools get more than Gov Reubin Askew has allocated in his proposed state budget About half of the 28 ty college presidents warned the education subcommittee Friday about what would happen if proposal million for the colleges was adopted The stale Education Department is seeking million Herbert Swede Phillips the colorful president of Lake City Community College said the cut would do more than cause the turning away of students Our college nurse will go Our director of student activities will go We've abandoned in- instruction and eliminated foreign Phillips said The grass at Lake City Com- munity College is going to be up to your waist this summer We've cut out one librarian and we're going to buy no new library books next year if we get this kind of Phillips said The pleas from Phillips and others drew little sympathy from members of the subcommittee You should pray that state revenues next fiscal year don't get worse than they are supposed to said Sen Phil Lewis D- West Palm Beach We're going to do everything we can to help you but I gotta tell you it may not be what you want We're going to have to do the best we can This is going to be the greatest session for prioritizing setting priorities of state money in many years The dough just ain't Lewis said A House appropriations

scheduled to hold a news conference today to an- specifics of the tax recommendation which he said would be only good for one year The FEA claims schools will be forced to cut teachers and reduce the quality of education unless it receives more money from the state than last year Gov Reubin Askew has in- legislators not to go over spending levels for schools while preparing the coming budget The House predicts neither Askew nor lawmakers will en- dorse the FEA proposal I see little chance of legislators approving the in- House Speaker Don Tucker said This is one of those situations we'll have to make do with what we have I'd be against a sales tax in- Tucker added And it might be too early to ask for an increase From the indications I've seen and heard from the ex- perts it looks like the economy is headed for an upswing so an in- crease wouldn't be necessary budget proposal for the community colleges represents about per student the same as now and a continuation of present funding is
