Social services, or the lack of adequate funds for them, occupied much of the morning. The board of social services asked for an increase in the amount being paid for welfare patients housed in nursing homes. Foster Parents Increased amounts for costs borne by foster parents also was suggested. Development of state standards for day-care licensing also was suggested by the social services department. This would permit the receiving of federal funds. An -increase in foster parents' clothing allotments for incoming foster children also was suggested.

Trooper Bob Kinseth of Grin-nell said Friday he found nine Mexican nationals who didn't have passports. He said five persons were seated in the car and only one had a passport. Trooper Mark Davis of Brooklyn, who arrived to assist, said he saw a hand sticking out of the car trunk. Inside the patrolmen found four more Mexican nationals, .plus another walking down the h ghway. The troopers said the ten persons, who- range in age from 16 to 58 years, were taken to the Johnson county jail in Iowa City where Spanish language instructors from the University of Iowa assisted in translating.

Spring Recess Aired by By Randy Minkoff IOWA CITY (UPI) A member of the state board of regents Friday suggested that the spring recess at the three state universities be eliminated because of the energy %rd of Regents and the refund policy change from 100 percent to 70 percenl for two months' registration. At present, the U. of I. charges 517 per semester hour for correspondence study, for. enrollment fee and for extension of course is Biirned in WHAT CHEER-Mclvin Fau- bert was hospitalized at Iowa City today with second and third degree burns suffered in a fire here Friday night.

State Rep, Joan IJpsky said the need is greater for custodial homes. Una Supervisor -We need a more home-like atmosphere for this type of pa- she said. Linn Supervisor Jean Oxley asked that the ratio of fine money collected under the uni- fied court system be increased from 10 to 50 percent for coun- ties. County Auditor Merle Kopel also urged the legislators to seek more of the fine money for counties. Retail business men in the au- dience spoke against the nine percent limit on interest rales to be charged customers for credit buying. He cited loan companies, banks and car dealers as ex- amples of firms which charge a higher percentage. ISPIRG Claim ..Gary Goldstein, a represent- ative of the Iowa Student Public Interest Research Group decried the lack of public debate on the environ- ment impact of nuclear energy. He said his group is planning to hold public hearings on the matter. He claimed serious health hazards are involved in nuclear energy production. All of the legislators at the meeting agreed the state legis- ature- is powerless to regulate in the nuclear energy field. State Sen. .Tom Riley said he :avored the study, proposed by !ov. Robert Ray, to look .into the use of Iowa coal- for a source of energy. Existing Coal ..He (Ray) said the state could supply its own energy for 400 years with coal known to exist in Iowa. Riley also urged the study of lolar energy :as another source of power. Such devices as windmills were used in the past for generating energy, but electricity replaced the wind- mill because it was cheaper, he added. State Rep. John Palchett liked a suggestion from the audience ,hat a public referendum be permitted concerning use of nu- clear energy. County Auditor .Kopel also suggested a change in the county government's accounting ;ystem. Better methods of ransferring funds must be used, net said, and no major changes have been made in the accounting system since 1923. Down by Reports Boyd Complains IOWA CITY (AP) Univer- sity of Iowa 1'residcnt Willard Boyd complained Friday that the universities must make so Imany reports that there is ime to teach. Boyd said that if the univer- sity administration's purpose is basically "the business of pub- ic disclosure, we can not ex- pect too much educational lead- ership." So Hie slate board of reg- ents decided not to begin a new faculty management an- nual report. Instead, the reg- ents asked the three state uni- versities to furnish copies of other relevant reports already underway. Boyd believes the public should know what teachers arc doing, but "I sometimes think we're going to be so busy col- lecting data, it's going to com- pel us into a non-academic" function. The original proposal would :iave been an expansion of a Faculty workload1 study made ay the three universities since 1970. Regents president Mrs. H. Rand Peterson, Harlan, said those workload studies showed that the university faculties "work hard." Civil Service Provisions State Sen.

Gannon said he would favor veto action "unless the sumer credit industry provides the people of Iowa with full and complete information on the costs and revenues derived from the extension of the various kinds of credit and unless such information justifies a higher credit rate." igating a Friday night robbery of the First Securities and Trust Bank here.

But he noted that anti-trust officials say that so far they have found little evi- dence of such collusion. The Exxon Co. announced it is increasing its gasoline prices 0.7 cents a gallon and home heating oil 5.1 cents a gallon immediate- ly. A Japanese official said Arab oil supplies are reaching the U.

The ruling would apply to vir- tually all corporations with an- nual sales of million or more. The oil industry, for instance, would have to disclose not only revenues from individual opera- tions but also from specific re- fined products with large sales volumes under the ruling, said Peter Schuck of Consumers Union. A n t i -1 r u s t enforcers and groups trying to monitor eco- nomic controls programs have long been interested in more de- tailed figures on big corpora- tions. Deadline Friday To Apply for Tuition Grants Students interested in obtain- ing an Iowa tuition grant to at- tend-a private college or univer- sity next year have until Jan. 18 to file their applications, ac- cording to Richard Voss, direc- tor of financial aid and place- ment at Coe college. Students are eligible for up to per year, based on the ability of the family to contrib- ute, and is given by the state to help defray the higher costs of tuition and fees at Iowa's pri- vate colleges and universities. "Each year many students i who would be eligible fail to ap- I ply for the Iowa tuition grants." Voss said. "Many students are not thinking of attending a irivate school now, then later, it is too late to receive a grant. "Therefore, even if there's a remote chance of a student, ap- Jlying to a private school, they should apply for the grant now." Coe has about 200 students on campus this year who are recip- ients of the grants. Because of ihe expanded appropriation by the Iowa general assembly last year, many recipients of the [rant are coming from middle class families, Voss said. Application forms and infor- mation on the Iowa tuition grant are available through high school counselors and college fi- nancial aid officers. All Fords affected large or intermediate models.
