Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 21, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Regents To Seek Appropriation of Million for Next Biennium By Charles Roberts AMES state board of regents trod what they hoped was a line between inflation and orderly progress while working up a firm ap- proprialions request of J338.6 million'for the next two years. The figure approved Friday is more than million more lhan funding for 1973-75. Thc money request pre- pared for the Iowa legislature is firm, said regents' Presi- dent Mary Louise Peterson, Harlan, barring "extreme changes in circumstances." She said the board must try to help ease inflation instead of contribuling to il, bul musl be fair to its institutions, too. The general operating budget would actually amount lo million, but it was anticipaled income for the Iwo years would be million. The regents said they would need million from Ihe legislature for 1975-76 and for 1976-77. The Increases The appropriation increases would be 16.9 percent and 13.1 percent over current biennial funding. While no breakdown of fin- alized figures by institution were immediately available, many of the regents' staff rec- ommendations for operating budget ingredients remained substantially unchanged. At thc University of Iowa, the budget would total million, breaking down into an appropriation request of million. For Iowa State uni- versity, the operating budget figures totaled million, of which million would come from a legislative appro- priation. Thc University of Northern Iowa's budget would be million, of which would be appropriated by thc legis- lature. The Iowa School for thc Deaf recommendation was million and in ap- propriations, and for the Iowa Braille and Sight-Saving School the budget reached of thai funded through an approprialion. 12% Raise Also approved was million in askings for capital improvements such as build- ing construction. If lawmakers approve the request substantially as of- fered, teachers, their super- visors and scientists at Ihe Ihree universities would gel a 12 percent raise next year and 8 percent more (he following year. Bul approval for such pay raises will not continue forev- er, indicated regent Donald Shaw, Davenport, because in private industry raises aver- age 6 to 7 percent. "I don't think we can go too long with 10 to 12 percent in thc public sector when 6 to 7 percent is the average'In the private he warned. Nonetheless, he 'Said the proposed figures would proba- bly do no more than "cope wilh inflationary factors." Falling Behind Shaw quoted from business magazines which reported that, "People jus; aren't keep- ing up with inflation. People arc falling 3 percent behind thc cost of he said. The regents were unsure If the 12 percent year should be first or second in the coming biennium. "I go with the theory thai they should have a significant ly higher increase the first year than the said Regent S.J. Brownlee, a form- er legislator. He said he was not sure inflation will continue at current high levels for very much longer. The board concurred and placed Ihe 12 percent raise next year. Some Misgivings The regents, with some misgivings, also approved a 1 percent additional pay hike for'teachers, instructional of- ficers and scientists at the University of Northern Iowa. 'That would bring their rate- to 13 percent to help catch up wilh salary levels at compara- ble Institutions. "1 hate to think we're jeop- ardizing our credibility with Ihe legislature by asking 13 Brownlee said. The price lag for the 1 percent at UNI is said the regents' executive secretary, II. Wayne Rlchey, who said he recommended the expenditure "rather strong- ly." UNI faculty is "relatively below its competitive mar- said. Among approved capital askings was million for Phase II of the Lindquist Learning Center at thc Uni- versity of Iowa, a building earmarked for most of the college of education there. Moved Project The regents also moved the project from a No. 22 position in a list of priorities to fourth place. That brought a lengthy objection from Iowa Stale uni- versity, which has library construction in lllh place. The regents were reminded that they were generous in providing funds for acquisi- lion of many volumes for the library, bul now space is a problem and a new building must be planned. The budget includes 000 earmarked for student aid. "I'm disappointed lhal the figure is as small as il said Shaw. But he was assured by Kichey thai aid money budget- eel in oilier would swell the figure lo The regenls frankly admit- ted they did not know how much money (he legislature gave their institutions for the current biennium. Other Factors Although Initial appropria- lions'for thc current two years was million atjd respectively, Regent John Baldridge, a Chariton publish- er, said other factors were involved. He said the regents received supplemental funding because of cost increases for one thing, and had funding adjusted for rises in the cost of fuel and electricity. he said, "we've never seen that total, but there's no secret" about current funding. In other action, preliminary plans and budgeting for a million meats laboratory at ISU were approved. But the regents were warned thc amount allocated by the legislature for the project may be insufficient. DCS Moines Architect Dave Frevert, designer of thc pro- ject, said construction cost increases may make it im- possible lo build the plant for million. Bidding for the project is scheduled for next spring with completion by Iho fall of 1976. The board also approved preliminary plans for Ihe firsl phase of ,1 million fprwh- arl building al UNI. Phase II, planned for a capital request lo the 1975 legislature, would cost million. Vietnam Becomes Remote To Thinking in Pentagon Marion The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat., Sfpt. 21, 1974 7 By Warren L. Nelson WASHINGTON (UPI) Vietnam is becoming more remote in Pentagon thinking than the American revolution. It is a popular belief that the military always prepares In fight the last war. The U. S. military, however, wants In forget the last war. It is preparing to re-fight the lasl popular war and (hut was in Europe. The military has put Viet- nam aside and embraced America's long standing NATO commitment with the same dedication and fervor i! employed in the 1950s. HEATHCLIFF Gazelle Want results everyday.

History's Dustbin The turnauoui starte'rt even before the war ended. Throughout Ihe long years of Ihen Defense Secretary Laird was slowly trying to consign the war to (he- dustbin of history. If asked a question about Vietnam, Laird was likely to brush il aside and counter wilh a talk on Europe. He would ask his audience to look al the1 really important area, Ihe only parl of Ihe world where Sovicl military might face the1 U. S. armed forces directly. Vietnam is now just a little country, a long way away. II was a painful and embarrass- ing experience- for the American military as well as for the American people. All would like to forget il. Jerry Friedhe-im, Hie prin- cipal spokesman for l lie- defense department, was asked recently if Air America, a CIA-financed airline, was fly- ing supplies to Vietnamese units in combat areas. "1 don'l Friedheim said. "We're a little hit out of touch wilh Vietnam al Ibis stage of history since we don't have anybody (here other lhan those thai work in Ihe Thai, of course, was con- siderable hyperbole since the services are still supplying Saigon with equipment and ammunition at the rale of billion a year. But it did sum up thc Pentagon's attitude. Defense Secretary Schle- singer has continued Laird's European orientation and ad- ded a dash of nuclear weaponry. He expounds readily on missile accuracy and warheads, on nuclear strategy and concepts, on arms limita- tion philosophy and prospects. But Vietnam is a subject he generally touches only when he must defend the budget for aid lo Saigon. Thc European emphasis is by no means purely a cosmetic design to avert eyes from unpleasant and niemsy things. In the minds of most defense planners, Europe is the prin- cipal commitment. Thai is Ihc area where U. S. interests are exposed far more than in Southeast Asian jungles. Europe! Degrade- Also, in order to fight in Vietnam, thc U. S. forces in Europe had been degraded. The-ir equipment was taken from them; they were used as a dumping ground for men awaiting or completing tours in llu1 war Morale- ft-ll, readiness plummeted. There- was a real need lo focus alien- lion and effort on rebuilding the- forces there.

I am now working in a factory for an hour. My first encounter with HACAP was six years ago. I was 25 years old with a ninth grade educa- tion. I had not held a job for longer than three months and had never earned more than a month. "I was married and had two children. Many agencies had provided services but a HACAP worker was the first person who had enough failh in me lo spend time gaining my confi- dence and making me feel worthwhile so that I would attempt some training. "For the first time someone motivated me to stick with something. I obtained my GED certificate in' six months. I spent one year in Vocational training. I stuck with a low pay- ing job per hour) for one year to establish a work rec- ord. Because I'm a happier person I feel I'm a better hus- band and father now. "My wife was also helped. She enrolled in Ihc operation mainstream training program. She obtained a high school diploma. Due to an improved self-image she was able lo give a speech which resulted in a job offer. She took this job four years ago and is still working. Our combined income is 700 a year. Two years ago our income was the most we had earned in our lives. Thanks to HACAP my whole life style has changed. Your United Way, contribution helped. Thanks to you it's working.

Bailey said in extreme cases the remote-controlled plane could carry an explosive charge to demolish doors behind which criminals might be hiding. He said the plane can fly 60 miles per hour and "under the guidance of an experienced controller would be difficult lo shoot down from the air."
