Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 28, 1972, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Demo: Elect Republican So Hell Inherit Money Mess By Valiant E. Corley DES MOINES (AP) -Iowans should elect a Republican governor for the next two years so he’ll have to contend with the depleted state treasury created by the current Republican administration, says Assistant Senate Minority Leader James Schaben (D-Dunlap). “If we elect a Democratic governor, we are going to hand him ... a mess,” Schaben said, “a problem he didn’t help to create.” The Democratic leader predicts the state of Iowa will be in worse financial straits at the end of the current biennium — June SO, 1973 — than at the end of the last biennium. Schaben said the state ended the last biennium — June 30, 1971 — with a $40 million deficit. “I don’t intend to support a Republican for governor, but they are entitled to this mess,” Schaben said. “I don’t think it would be a healthy situation for any Democratic governor to have to live with,” Schaben continued. Surplus Estimate After receiving pressure from legislative leaders for a Coed at Cornell To Be Fulbright Scholar in 1973 Two Utilities Share Blame For Any Shortages-Ray The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., March 28, 1972 Sen. James Schaben projected general fund balance at the end of the current biennium, Comptroller Marvin Selden estimated the state’s general fund would have a surplus of $5,600,000. The general assembly then appropriated more than $3,600,000 of that estimated surplus, leaving less than $2 million in working capital projected for the end of the biennium. Schaben called Selden’s prediction “an over estimation of revenue.” “The growth factor is so accelerated for the next two years, there is no way” the state can end the biennium with a surplus, Schaben said. “I looked at the projections a year ago,” Schaben said. “It’s alarming the way they are projected. When you’re spending $50 million a month, how do you know the current balance?” Principal-Coach Again Blocks Firing by Board ALLISON (UPI) - For the second time in less than a week, the principal of Allison-Bristow high school Monday used legal maneuvers to keep the local school board from firing him. Last week Dale Fogle, who is also the school’s highly successful girls basketball coach, got a court injunction to keep the school board from delivering a hotice advising him that steps had been taken toward his dismissal, and Monday he used another court injunction to keep the school board from meeting to discuss his firing. The injunction ordering the board not to meet was issued by Butler county district court Judge B. C. Sullivan, who also issued last week’s injunction prohibiting delivery of the notice of dismissal. Preliminary hearings for both injunctions have been set for April 3. Fogle asked for the more recent injunction on the grounds that iwo members of j until the school board had not been legally sworn in, according to earlier minutes of the school board. Sullivan granted the earlier injunction last Tuesday when school board members emerged from a closed meeting with the news that they were firing the principal, who is also football coach and physical education teacher at the Allison school. Fogie has been a girls basketball coach for 16 years, and has taken four Allison-Bristow squads to the state tournament in his nine years here. He has an over-all coaching mark of 351-58. Walters To Fill Sheriff's Post VINTON — The Benton board of supervisors Monday appointed Jim Walters to fill the unexpired term of Harold Burch, Benton county sheriff. Walters, 28, is a resident of Vinton and presently is second deputy in the office. Burch’s resignation takes effect May I. He will become police chief at Clarksville. Walters will serve after the November election. The supervisors named John Garbers of Van Horne as weed commissioner to serve from March 27 until Dec. 31 this year. His duties include control of Fogle claimed the board had (noxious weeds and clearing of violated the state open meeting brush and weeds from roadsides law the night before when I and spot spraying. Schaben complained that when the state’s working balance became low, stocks in the state liquor stores were allowed to dwindle, income tax refunds and gasoline tax refunds were slowed. He said that when the surplus had dipped in the past, the Republican administration had “borrowed money from appropriations” and had ig-n o r e d the programs the money had been appropriated for. “We don’t know how much we’re floating,” Schaben said. The Democratic leader said he believes the next session of the Iowa legislature could begin to solve the state’s financial problems — without a general tax increase. Schaben said there are several areas in state government that could be trimmed with little if any adverse effect. He said the legislature should “take a look at the Office for Planning and Programming first,” saying that department started as a small office only a few years ago but has now boomed into a large department. Regents, Too “I personally favor the employment of an economy or efficiency expert to take a look at all of our board of regents institutions,” Schaben said. Following examination of the state universities, the Dunlap Democrat thinks the efficiency expert should examine all facets of state government. “I’m convinced that state employes are entitled to a raise,” Schaben said. “But there are also places we can consolidate. Sometimes those raises should be made by reducing the number of employes.” “I don’t see any need for a general tax increase,” Schaben said. “We could consider the possibility of some tax revisions — lessening taxes in some areas and raising them in others,” Schaben continued. “But I don’t know what we will do if the cost of government continues to pyramid like it has, and if the deficit spending continues at the alarming rate it has recently,” Schaben said. MT. VERNON — Cornell college senior Rebecca Gaul, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Gaul of route 3, Tipton, has been notified that she will receive a full scholarship under . the German-American Fulbright | Eastern Iowa this summer Program for study in Germany because proper steps were not By Jerry Mursencr    |    the    ecological    balance    of    the DES MOINES (UPI) — Gov. river * Robert Ray said Monday two giant utility firms will share the blame for any power shortages next academic year. Miss Gaul plans to study German literature at the University of Kiel, located in the northern Rebecca Gaul part of West Germany near the Danish border. She will be there from Oct. 15 of this year to July 15, 1973. Ray said that state agencies involved should not be blamed for the delay because the “burden of proof really rests with them (the firms).” He said Iowa-Illinois and Commonwealth Edison should have had their case prepared to guarantee that no damage will be done.

MT. VERNON — Elmer C. Gast, a 1947 Cornell college graduate who is now superintendent of the Ardsley, N.Y., public schools, has established an annual $200 award to the education department of his alma mater. Half will be given to the department for its unrestricted use as a budget supplement. This amount is being reserved to defray expenses of students attending educational conferences. The rest, will provide annual $50 awards to two Cornell seniors, one specializing in elementary education and one in secondary. Awards will be based on excellence in student teaching, and winners must also be student members of the Iowa State Education Assn. and the National Education Assn. Recipients of the first two Gast awards will be named at the end of this school year. Gast said he established the departmental and individual awards “to repay the specific depa r tment of the college which really did the most to enable me to be successful today.” A native of Steamboat Rock, Iowa, Gast taught in Dysart and served as school superintendent in the Keystone, North Fayette and Keokuk school districts before accepting the New York position in 1971. Oelwein City Audit Received by Council OELWEIN — The city council here Monday night received a report on a 1971 state audit of city books, the first to be done in 19 years. State Auditor Lloyd Smith said his auditors found no discrepancies in city accounts, but he included some 12 pages of comments and recommendations in the audit report. All dealt with procedural matters. The council, in other business, voted to move some 30 parking meters from the east city parking lot to a new lot on the site of the old city hall. The latter site is closer to the downtown area. (EID program.
