Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 4 A The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Wed., November 20, 1974 72.2% Pay Hike Sought by OfPossible Bank ofFertiL?"96 WASHINGTON (UPI) Elderly Warned    ii    Court    Action Area School Instructors Sen. By Judy Daubenmier A group headed} by a Kirkwood Community college instructor Tuesday asked the governor to recommend an appropriation for 12.2 percent supplemental salary increases for area school instructors. Bill Grove, Kirkwood electronics instructor and president of the Iowa Higher Education Assn. (IHEA), and five other IHEA representatives met briefly with Gov. Robert Ray to outline their proposals for post-high school education. Grove said the group asked for the 12.2 percent increases for each year of the coming^ biennium. They also requested equip-ment replacement appropri ations to allow the area schools to replace IO percent of their equipment each year. Salary Discrepancies? In addition, Grove said, the group sought an appropriation to look into allegations of sex discrimination in salaries among area school instructors and correct the discrepancy if any is found. The IHEA charged during the closing days of the last session of the legislature that women instructors are paid less than their male counterparts at area schools. Grove said Ray “seemed reluctant to have the state look into the charges, so I suppose our group would have to do that. “What we’re looking for is a way to remedy the situation if it j Police received a report Tues- exists without going through the day f a„ 89.

That total is about 4 percent of the world fertilizer use, he said. “If utilized efficiently, this fertilizer could result in almost enough additional production to eliminate this year’s 18-million ton grain shortage,” Clark said in a statement issued here. “If a substantial portion of this fertilizer can be diverted to agriculture, it could result in a significant increase in world food production in the coming year.” Linn Jury Returns 13 Indictments The Linn county grand jury has returned 13 indictments and three no bills. The following are subject to trial now on these charges as a result of indictments returned against them: James L.
