News Tribune, The (Newspaper) - November 26, 1975, Fort Pierce, Florida The News Tribune, Wednesday, November 26, 1975 Page 2 Perry Explains Low Salaries at Florida By MICHAEL GOLDMAN TALLAHASSEE. Fla. (DPI) Florida University President Ben Perry says a desire to maintain small classes has forced FAMU to pay lower salaries to its professors. "Some schools have large classes with few professors, but it has never been our philoso- phy to teach that way." Perry told a Board of Regents evaluating committee Tuesday. "Now. we are being penalized for trying lo give students a good education. We lack funds lo pay salaries at Ilie levels of other universities." The regents are evaluating Perry's peformance as FAMU president. All state university presidents, holding office five years or longer, face regent evaluation. Perry has served as president of the predominately black university since September, 1968. Regent Marshall Harris said FAMU has been forced to use funds to hire extra professors for the smaller classes instead o! spending the revenues on faculty pay increases. Harris sharply denied conten- tions by some FAMU faculty and administrators of the legislature discriminating against the school of students. "Although historically there is evidence of funding discrimi- nation al Florida it is not occurring said Harris. "1 would like to clear up (his misconception because it was mentioned lo me during my interviews of Florida staff members. Florida in recent years has been funded on the same equal distribution level as the other eight state universities." Perry told the his achievements as president are keeping good relations with students and faculty, creating an atmosphere for student to get quality educations and maintaining good communica- tion with the legislature and other government branches. Perry said his weak points include poor bookkeeping and lack of time to conduct long- range planning. Florida has been criticized for its use of federal grants and stale appro- priations. "You can't allocate funds and follow a model or pilot program for the said Perry. "Every school should be able to adapt grants lo its own programs." Perry said Auditor General Ernest Ellison has noticed improvements in FAMU's ac- counting techniques. "The auditor was jusl here yesterday, and while 1 don't think Mr. Ellison has given us a clean bill of health, he stated he has found us a lot better off than in 1969."

Wind-whipped snow blasted western Kansas early today, making most major highways hazardous but passable.

Another major wintry storm New England's first of the season was blamed for at least two traffic deaths before tapering off Tuesday. Denver residents complained of icy streets following a snowstorm early Tuesday and received a word of advice from John Granato, city director of snow clearing operations: "II you can't gel away from the curb, you should stay home." flea collars, dusts and sprays. Wright warned that pet- owners themselves are liable to come under attack from the fleas if they get rid of their flea-infested dogs and cats too abruptly. "They cause bites and sores and some people have an allergy to Dr. Wright said. "Some people are highlj susceptible to them." "We've had children who come in to us (from the schools) with flea said Dr. Cowdery. "There are diseases that fleas can carry, but they're a nuisance rather than a health hazard at present." Allen blamed the outbreak of fleas, which he called "a flea on five straight winters in the past five plus an increase in the number of animals and the fleas' remarkable ability to reproduce. According to Allen, one female flea is capable of laying 350 eggs in her lifetime and a buildup of thousands of fleas can occur within a two or three-week period. HALLANDALE, Fla. (UPI1 Basking in the warmth of receptions in Tallahassee and in Ihe Tampa Bay area. Sen. Henry Jackson. car- ried his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomi- nation to south Florida today. He was scheduled for recep- tions at Hallandale, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood and Miami before an evening reunion with his family at the Diplomat Hotel here, aides said. Thanksgiving day will include a visit at the Miami Beach home of Sen. Abraham Ribicoff. D-Conn. Reporters said Jackson was given a standing ovation at a reception for Tampa Bay Democratic party leaders Tues- day night evai though an estimated 40 per cent are pledged to the campaign of former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carler. Jackson was given a cordial reception earlier Tuesday by Florida Gov. Reubin Askew. Even though Askew emphasized he was holding firm in his resolve o! neutrality in the presidential sweepstakes, the governor took lime to praise Jackson as one of the moving forces in Florida's successful light lo save Ihe Big Cypress Swamp. "His committee support actu- ally was the Askew said. Jackson stopped off at the Florida capitol to become the first candidate to enter Flori- da's March presidential prefer- ence primary. He would have been entered on the ballot anyway along with all others considered "serious can- didates" by the media and the staff of Florida Secretary of State Bruce Smathers. In talks with Florida report- ers and party leaders, Jackson hit hard at economic issues and predicting that Alabama Gov. George Wallace won't show up as strong in the Florida primary this time. Wallace won all but one delegate in the 1972 Florida primary which was a district winner-take-all vote. This time, a new primary law will give delegates lo candi- dates who carry at least 15 per cent of a district's total vote. Jackson said Wallace's cam- paign will be hurt more by Ronald Reagan's conservative bid against President Ford on Ihe Republican side than by any Democrat. Jackson said ho would rather run against Ford than Reagan because "it's always easier to run against the guy who caused Ihe problems." Jackson kept telling all listeners that the major issues in Florida are "the economy and unemployment. And when you're talking about economy, you're talking about utilities.

Reubin Askew says serving a hot orange juice sipper to visiting presidential candidates gives him something lo talk about and promotes Florida citrus. Askew says he can't talk politics because he is staying neutral in the March 9 Democratic presidential prima- ry So he pours each hopeful a cup of hot juice that tastes a little like russian tea with orange juice added. The recipe, which serves five, calls for a six ounce can of frozen orange juice concenlrate that has been thawed, a half cup of sugar, one-fourth tea- spoon of ground cloves, one- third teaspoon of ground cinnamon and three teaspoons of instant tea. This mixture is poured into five cups of boiling water. HOMESTEAD, Fla. (UPI) Dade County agricultural offi- cials say the recent near- freezing temperatures in the southern parts of the county have damaged isolated pockets of vegetable crops. Dr. William Stall, a member of the county agricultural extension office, said Tuesday that scattered frost conditions have damaged some tomato, cucumber and squash crops while other plants have suf- fered wind-burn damage. He said growers in the southern part of the county do not appear to have been caught totally by surprised, but added that it was difficult to guard against frost damage "when the forecast is in the mid-40s and it goes down to 34 in some places." A cold spell from Nov. 13-15 dropped temperatures into the 40s and as low as the 30s in some parts of the county. The tempera lure Tuesday also dropped into the 40s. Stall said there has been no need to worry about cold temperatures in November in Ihe past. "Normally, we start to worry about the vegetables from the middle of December to the middle of he said.

Gurney Retrial Not Expected To Take as Long as First One By DAVID L. LAN'GFORO ORLANDO, Fla. The wheels have been set in motion for a re-trial of former Sen. Edward J. Gurncy but prosecutors say they don't expect the second proceedings to "take the five months it took" the first. U.S. District Judge George C.

"If he pays us in Ihe rest of his life, he'll be doing well." Sullivan told the court, "This is a case of great complexity, of great size.
