If any income sources were estimated too low, the college would lose those funds.
The budget includes an additional $90,(XXI in tuition, raised in a $10 quarterly tuition hike approved by the board Thursday also.
'I’he college’s directors expressed dissatisfaction with the way community colleges were treated by the legislature this! year.
Director Wayne Newton of Luzerne recommended “putting! the heat on the appropriations committees of both the house and the senate to keep them from treating the community colleges like th** orphans of education. The school districts all have their budgets settled, and here we are at the eleventh hour.’’
Board President B A Jensen suggested the problem may have stemmed from a weak lobbying voice by the community colleges in the state legislature
He laid part of the blame on the Iowa Council of Area School Boards. In considering a proposal from the ICASB of an incease in dues for members from $2.4(X) to $10,470. Jensen said:
“It’s too much. It’s not the 'dollars that bothers me. Its what we’re getting for those dollars. Ifs quite a sum to pay in view of the kind of representation we get at the legislature.’’
Jensen said he will attend the !organization’s monthly meeting in June, and “I won’t come back as a member of that organization without some very substantial changes in that organization.”

He referred to the portion of Bowling street SW leading from highway 30 south toward thc college. The highway commission plans to make a small stretch of the road near the intersection four lanes w ide.
About three-fourths of a mile of Bowling will remain two-lane until the point near Kirkwood where Bowling is already four lanes wide.
Ballantyne said studies indicated that when highway 30’s widening is completed. 7.000 cars will be moving by the Bowling-highway 30 intersection at peak hours so traffic on Bowling will have to bi1 kept moving rapidly.
“It iooks to me like somebody tried to plan how many people they could kill in thc first few days,” Ballantyne said.
He said he is working with Cedar Rapids city officials to have the remaining portion of Bowling street widened to four lanes.
