Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 23, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette; Tiies., April 23, 1974 Senate Group Adds Million to Regents' Budgets "rSHK rtVC Ion -anfnnrl tticntinU An nm nnn _c it. t. By Frank Nye DBS MOINES Two sure signs that the legislature is nearing adjournment are (I) appointment of a house sifting committee and (2) committee approval of appropriation bills for board of regent institu- tions. House Speaker Andrew Var- ley (R-Stuart) appointed the sifting committee last week. Monday, the senate appropria- ations committee approved two bills adding a total of to the 1973-75 budg- ets of the regents institutions. One bill contains mil- lion for capital improvements at the five institutions. The other contains million, including mil- lion to raise salaries of regent academic and nonaca- demic employes and to pay in part for disability insurance. The salary increase aver- ages about 7.5 percent for academic personnel and 6.5 for non-academic personnel, plus a 3.5 increase for non-; academic personnel under the merit system. Also included in the bills are reductions totaling from the 1974-75 appropri- ations to the University of Iowa, Iowa State and the Uni- versity of Northern Iowa by the 1973 legislature. These must be made up, the senate commit- tee agreed, through an in- crease of a year in tuition charged nonresident graduate and undergraduate students beginning this September. There will be no increase in tuition of resident tuition this year, for either graduate or undergraduate students, the committee decided, in view of the regents' recent statement that such an increase is in prospect for the 1975-76 school year. Yearly Costs The annual increase if voted by the legislature and instituted by the regents will send tuition to a year at Iowa for undergrad- uates, at Iowa State and at Northern Iowa. Graduates will have to pay a year at Iowa, at Iowa State and at Northern Iowa. Present rates for resident students are a year at Iowa, and at both Iowa State and Northern Iowa.

Move Launched For Adjournment By House Friday DES MOINES (AP) A move for final adjournment of the 1974 legislature at 5 p.m. Friday was launched in the Iowa house Tuesday by Rep. Harold Fischer He accused the leaders of the house and senate of "playing games" which have had the result of prolonging the session. "I think we have the votes to adjourn the house and just leave the senate sitting there, unless they'll come to their senses very Fischer declared. The whole session has been marred by a behind the scenes struggle over session priorities. One faction has been pushing Gov. Hobert Ray's 44-point pro- gram. The house and senate leader- ships have had their own priori- ty lists. Each has been waiting until the other house passes cer- tain priority bills before taking up bills the other house wants.

Kent Peters, 19, and his brother, Scott, 18, said Monday they launched their four-pas- senger-sized raft about three blocks upstream from the main dam in downtown Waterloo. The drop 'over the dam is only about two feet because of water held back by construction work on a new bridge just below the dam.

By law, an early withdrawal automatically forces any interest earned to be paid at the lower rate. In addition, 3 months of interest is forfeited as a penalty! So, money withdrawn early from certificate ac- counts actually earns less than it would have in a regular passbook account We point out this fact and others that could affectyour earnings you save.
