News Tribune, The (Newspaper) - April 28, 1975, Fort Pierce, Florida The News Tribune, Monday, April 28, 1975 Page 2 i i i w vi it; TTiunwa Jf My I II 1.01 r aye t Community College 'Ain't There' C The weather J By 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 educa- 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 communi- ty college presidents warned the education subcommittee Friday about what would happen if AsVew's 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- dividualized 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 Jusl going to have to do the best we can. "This is going to be the greatest session for prioritizing (setting priorities forspending of state money) in many years. The dough just ain't Lewis said A House appropriations sub- committee tentatively added million to Askew's recommenda- tion for the community colleges, but that's far from certain now that Appropriations Chairman Ed Fortune, D-Pace, has ordered all subcommittees to come up with million to fund pay raises for state employes. Lieutenant Governor Jim Williams argued recently FEA Tax Plan Given Little Chance TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (UPI) Top House leaders say a move by the Florida Education Associa- tion lo increase the state sales tax from four to five cents per dollar for public school and university budgets stands lit lie chance of being approved. FEA president Richard Balchelder is scheduled to hold a news conference today to an- nounce 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- structed legislators not to go over 1974-75 spending levels for schools while preparing the up- 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." Askew's budget proposal for the community colleges represents about per student, the same as now, and a continuation of present funding is all public schools and universities can ex- pect for the time being. Division of Community Colleges Director Lee Henderson does not agree with Williams' contention. Henderson told the education subcommittee Williams did not include in his estimates that the colleges used million in carry- over money from the previous year and million in interest from investments to reach the current level of per student. He said this million will not be available next year. Henderson and Education Commissioner Ralph Turlington also argue that Askew's recommendation is based on a total enrollment of students next year, below the estimated current enroll- ment.

James Monroe, fifth president of the United States, was born April This Is entertainer Ann-Margret's 34lh birthday. On this day in history: In 1788, Maryland was ad- mitted to the Union as the seventh state. In 1945, Fascist leader Benlto Mussolini was executed by Italian patriots. In 1952, the war with Japan was officially ended with signing of a treaty by the United States and 47 other nations. In 1969, French Presldem Charles de Gaulle resigned after being defeated in a referendum. A thought for the day: Presi- dent James Monroe, author of "The Monroe said, "National honor is national property of the highest value." Fatal Experiment In his travels through the Persian Gulf area and Mesopotamia, Alexander the Great heard tales of a kind of "water" that seeped out of the ground and burned. He didn't believe it until he tested it by pouring the strange fluid over a boy, then igniting him with a torch. Petroleum Is now the area's chief product.
