The bill includes a provision which will make it necessary for the regents to increase tu- ition of nonresident graduate and undergraduate1 students al the universities by a year starting this fall. Before taking the 45 to 0 vote for the bill, the senate added to the. million in the original bill to finance a research project at Iowa State. The is to be a continu- ing appropriation to research methods of preventing- and cur- ing transmissible gastro-enteri- tis and other enteric diseases affecting swine. It was original- ly contained in a separate bill. Of the million, million is for capital improve- ments at Iowa, Iowa State anc Northern Iowa universities, the Iowa Braille and Sight-Saving school at Vinton and the Iowa School for the Deaf at Council Bluffs, The remaining more than million includes slightly more than million for pay raises for more than ac- a d e m i c and non-academic personnel with the rest to meet rising operational costs above the 1974-75 appropri- ations to the institutions by the 1973 legislature.

The new head of the Federal Energy Office, John Sawhill, said his agency would analyze oil profits "to see if price in- creases have led to increased investment, especially in drill- ng and development rather than in marketing."

Without such action and a reduction of fiscal' burdens on mlroleum imports, producer :ountries see no reason for re- considering their pricing poli- cies, he said in an interview vith the influential newspaper teie Zuercher Zeitung.
