W. Budget Cuts MADISON, Wis. (AP) The University of Wisconsin's re- quests for construction money face a fiscal trimming because they do not correspond with en- rollment levels, Gov. Patrick J. Lucey says. Not only does the error forecast reductions in UW's capital improvments plans, he said it may be economically wise to dose part of the com- munity-based UW center sys- tem. The Board of Regents has sent to tie State Building Com- mission a capital improvements budget of million for the 1973-75 fiscal biennium, about SB million more than requested for the current biennium and about million more than the legislature approved for 1971-73. "I don't believe that they really expect me to take this all that Lucey, the commission chairman, said of the regents' bid- "The budget includes at least one new building for each of the major campuses, even where the enrollment has di- he told an inter- :ewer. The regents, system includes nine state colleges which were merged with UW in hope of creating economic effi- ciency, said the million package would get S25 million from grants and other sources, but would need S94 million from state taxpayers. "This is one place where the spirit of merger has been se- r.ously violated." governor remarked. He cited a 512.5 million rec- ommendation for the Mil- waukee campus as typical of "excessively high and said there may be a slow-down in work on a UW medical cen- ter in Madison. Lucey said he has not studied the regents' billion oper- ating budget "as thoroughly as I plan to." "But I do find it hard to jus- tify a 25 per cent increase being asked of taxpayers when the university institution has had no proportionate increase in its he continued. UW has reported a .03 per cent enrollment increase throughout its system, with particular descreases on seven of the campuses which have a four-year curriculum. Lucev said there may be good reason to close one of 'he system's two-year centers, re- marking: "If we were staring from scratch now. we would never create 13 campus- es." It would be difficult to close a four-year campus, he said, be- cause of college-town links w-'th the units. But the "two-year carp.pi'ses with no deep-seated Traditions" may qualify for economic cur- tailment, although it would "have to be studied very hard, he said." Another possibility, he said, would be to merge the center system with the state's commu- nity-based vocational, technical and adult education system. I; is "not my recommenda- tion, but just a thought." he said. By STEVE SANDBERG (Reporter SUM Writer! The Fond du Lac Education Association (FEA) and the board of education of Joint School District No. 1 have petitioned the Wisconsin Employment Relations Com- mission for a mediator, ac- cording to an announcement made this morning by Dennis Vetter, FEA president, and Ken Grove, chairman of the school board's negotiating team. In a letter sent to WERC this morning, the FEA and school board have once again requested a mediator to help solve unresolved issues be- tween the two groups. In February of this year an impasse was also reached negotiations for the 1972 teacher contract. Teachers worked without a contract this year until March when an agreement was reached "It is to be emphasized that this step has been taken after nearly six months of continu- ous negotiations and after 16 negotiating meetings with the Vetter said. Negotiating teams for the two organizations agreed to seek a WERC negotiator last Thursday night after a n impasse was declared by the FEA. Petitioning for a nego- tiator conforms to the terms of the present agreement, which state that in the case of an impasse, both panics agree to be bound by the provisions of the Wisconsin Statutes 111.70. FEA issues remaining unresolved include m a i n- tenance of standards, class size, binding arbitration, reduction in staff, disruptive student, unprofessional conduct, insurance, state teachers' retirement fair share agreement, teach- ers aide policy, 1973-74 calen- dar and base salary. According to Grove, board issues remaining unresolved include grievance procedure, individual contracts, board rights policy and base salary. Both Vetter and Grove said this morning that they were aware that many mediators have been petitioned from the WERC this year. Grove said, m fact, that he doubted if the matter could be resolved the next six weeks.

The 14-man raiding squad piled 83 automatic rifles and 21 submachine guns with 1.300 rounds of ammunition into an army truck and escaped with- out firing a shot But the army reported after a massive security dragnet i: had recovered 61 nfles. 8 sub- machine guns and most of the ammunition hidden on the golf course at Portadowr.. a pre- dominantly Protestant r.dustr- al town 30 miles south of Bel- fast. The one of the most daring arms-grabbing strikes in the British province since sec- tanan fighting erupted three years ago, fueled fears that Protestant and Roman Catholic extremists are squaring for an- other round of feuding. It came amid reports the two rvai wings of the Irish Re publxan Army' had moved to set aside their ideoJog-.cal dif- ference to plan the defense of Cathohc enclaves against any a-tack by Protestant ex- tremists.

(AP) A three-member study panel said today it isn't impressed with the curing qualities reported by practitioners of chiropractic. The study group said "over- whelming evidence exists to demonstrate that chiropractic theory and practice have no scientific validity, and do have the potential for doing substan- tial physical harm." The remarks are in a 44-page study report, being submitted to the governor's Health Plan- ning and Policy Task Force by a committee comprising a law- yer, a pharmacy professor and a labor leader. Chiropractors, whose traditional art concerns mani- pulation of the spine, reported success with treating a broad field of ailments from asthma to cancer, the report said. The panel estimates the state's 585 licensed chiroprac- tors have about patients, about 2 per cent of the state's population. "It is beyond the panel said, "that substantial numbers of people believe themselves to have been helped by chiropractic treatment." It said about 46 per cent of the state's chiropractors grad- uated from Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa, which the committee toured. The members of the study panel were Milwaukee attorney Gilda Shellow, the chairman; and Robert Durkin, vice presi- dent of the Milwaukee County Labor Council, and William Btockstein, a University of Wis- consin pharmacy professor.
