Ada Evening News (Newspaper) - May 13, 1970, Ada, Oklahoma Funds Increase For Colleges Next Year---But Don't Meet Requests OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)—All 18 of Oklahoma's state universities and colleges got less than they asked for as the Board of Regents divided $69.5 million in education funds Tuesday. But thanks to about $10 million in new money, they all received more than they had to The University of Oklahoma received the biggest share of the funds, $13.8 million, which was $4.7 million short of the $18.5 million the university had asked for. Oklahoma State University received the next largest appropriation, $13.4 millon. OSU officials had requested $17.9 million. However, the new Tulsa Junior College actually fared best of all the schools. Regents appropriated $1,100,000 to the Tulsa school, which was more than even the legislature had asked for them and was only $59,750 short of what the school officials had asked themselves. After funds for special projects were allocated, regents had only $8 million of the $10 million in new money to distribute among all the state schools. Regents distributed the remainder by giving each of the 18 schools about 27 per cent of their requested budget increases. “Each institution shares in the new money to the same degree, proportionately, that he (sic) had shared in the original request for money,” said Dr. E. T. Dunlap, chancellor. However, to meet that 27 per cent figure, regents had to reject a $40,000 request for the Southwest Center for Safety Education and Research at Oklahoma State University. They also cut from $40,000 to $20,000 the amount of money for tick research at OSU. They further rejected a $60,-000 request for a conservation and aviation program at Southeastern State College. Finally, they turned down a $500,000 allocation to increase enrollment at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center. Regents were East Central’s allocation amounts to $1,626,481. The amount requested was $1,746,-538. This year’s allocation is $82,612 more than last year’s. told the increase could be made without the new money. However, regents did set aside $650,000 for support of community junior colleges. Midwest City’s Oscar Rose Junior College will get $250,000; Altus Junior College will get $100,000. Seminole, Poteau, El Reno, and Sayre junior colleges will split $300,000. Dunlap said the support funds represented state aid equal to 52 per cent of per capita cost spent at state junior colleges. The legislature passed a bill increasing state aid from 50 to 75 per cent of per capita cost. Dr. Dunlap said, however, that there was not enough money available to give full three-fourths aid. The board did approve a proposal to increase enrollment fees at community junior colleges from $6.25 to $7.25 to bring them in line with regular junior colleges. Regents also: —Continued state accreditation of Cameron College in Lawton for two more years. —Authorized allocation of $90,-000 in building bonds funds to modernize physical education facilities at Oklahoma Military Academy to reach coed status. —Conditionally accepted a site on which the Altus Junior College could be brought under the state system. —Extended for one year the $3 per semester hour fee currently charged students at the University of Oklahoma Law School. The Senate debate on Cambodia is likely to last until Ll. S. troops have been withdrawn, according to a news item today. It would be just like the Senate to solve the Cambodian problem by July 2.

Each of the victims was hacked, stabbed or shot multiple times, far more times than necessary to kill.
