Senate Group Adds $28 Million to Regents' Budgets
By Frank Nye
DES 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 institutions.
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 $28,324,000 to the 1973-75 budgets of the regents institutions.
One bill contains $14,202 million for capital improvements at the five institutions.
The other contains $14,122 million, including $10,322 million to raise salaries of 15,174 regent academic and nonacademic employes and to pay in part for disability insurance.
The salary increase averages 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 $700,000 from the 1974-75 appropriations to the University of Iowa, Iowa State and the University of Northern Iowa by the 1973 legislature.
These $700,000 must be made up, the senate commit
tee agreed, through an increase of $100 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.
The $100 annual increase — if voted by the legislature and instituted by the regents — will send tuition to $1,450 a year at Iowa for undergraduates, $1,430 at Iowa State and $1,200 at Northern Iowa.
Graduates will have to pay $1,600 a year at Iowa. $1,580 at Iowa State and $1,350 at Northern Iowa.
Present rates for resident students are $620 a year at Iowa, and $600 at both Iowa State and Northern Iowa.
A breakdown of the operational appropriation bill voted by the senate shows that Iowa would receive $3,783,000, Iowa State $3,613,000, Northern Iowa $1,005,000, Iowa Braille and Sight-Saving School at. Vinton $58,000 and Iowa School for the Deaf at Council Bluffs $183,000.

No matter what amount you save, you want the same thing every other saver wants. 'Hie highest possible return on your money.
At Bohemian Savings & Loan, well see that you get it. Whether you’re considering a 5% account, a 7-1/2% certificate, or one of the three savings options in between, we’ll make sure you /u//y understand the terms of each. So your money can always carn its maximum.
A lot of people actually lose money by going for the high certificate rates, thinking they'll come out ahead even if they withdraw their money before the scheduled time. Not so!
By law, an early withdrawal automatically forces any interest earned to be paid at the lower passbook rate. In addition, 3
months of interest is forfeited as a penalty! So, money withdrawn early from certificate accounts actually earns less than it would have in a regular passbook account.
We point out this fact — and others that could affect your earnings — before you save. As a result of this extra interest we take in you, you can often end up with extra interest in your pocket!
And once you decide to save, TRANS MATIC service can help you save regularly. You decide the amount you wish to save each month, and your authorized deposit is automatically transferred from your bank checking account to your savings account at Bohemian.
