Special a the University Board of trustees provisionally approved the Transfer of funds to allow salary hikes averaging five per cent for University employees beginning next month in its meeting Here Friday and okayed general guidelines for the allocation of the salary hikes among the various groups of University employees. The trustees approval is still contingent on final approval of a $2.1 million fund Transfer from equipment purchases into salary allotments a Transfer which passed the Illinois legislature last week and is expected to be approved soon by gov. Richard b. Ogilvie. In addition to the $2.1 million fund Transfer made possible by legislative action the trustees approved transfers from other University funds chiefly unspent research overhead funds to provide the total amount needed for the salary hikes. Those transfers do not need prior legislative approval. The guidelines which the administration proposed which will be subject to final approval by the Federal pay commission and the Cost of living Council Call for salary hikes to average five per cent within each of the following groups regular academic staff. Teaching and research assistants part time student employees nonacademic staff paid by prevailing wage formulas nonacademic staff whose wages Are determined through negotiations and other nonacademic staff. Within each of these groups however salary hikes will be made on the basis of Merit although rises in the Cost of living should be taken into account the guidelines state. Dividing the University staff into groups each of which will receive pay hikes averaging five per cent will mean that for example faculty can not get a higher average pay hike at the expense of part time students. A generally speaking a he reportedly stated newly appointed staff members Are not eligible for. Salary for those employees for whom pay hikes were negotiated before the beginning of the recently ended wage Price freeze the increases took effect nov. 15, the memo stated. The rest of the increases will become effective with the pay period beginning dec. 1 if the necessary payroll changes can be made by then. If they cannot the memo to the trustees stated the pay increase which would have been paid in december a paycheck will instead be added into the next pay period by Polly Anderson daily Vuini staff writer Monticello 111. Special a University president John e. Corbally or. Recommended tuition be raised $50 per semester for Illinois residents and $116 for non residents next year As the University Board of trustees met Here Friday. Resident and non resident students Are now charged $198 and $627 per semester respectively. The trustees referred the recommendation to their general policy committee and said they plan to hold hearings on the recommendation before voting on it probably at their next meeting dec. 17. Price Board of any tuition hikes would be subject to the approval of the presidents Price commission Corbally said. The commission has stated it will try to hold annual inflation nationally to 2.5 per cent. Corbally said even with the tuition hikes University tuition would be lower than most big ten schools and other schools the University compares itself with when figuring tuition rates salary rates and the like. Even though he knew that comparison would not be meaningful to persons facing the higher tuition rates Corbally said a in terms of the fiscal need of the state and the University it appears summer hike the tuition hike Corbally proposed would go into effect during summer school term of 1972, Corbally said. The hike for summer school students would be half of the regular semester rate hike. Corbally said the rate hike would be made in the summer because that term Falls primarily within fiscal year 1972-73, which begins july 1. Corbally a tuition hike recommendations were the same As those advocated by the Illinois Board of higher education. Corbally had said last month that he would try to hold his tuition recommendations somewhat below the figures the higher Board advocated. He said Friday it was decided to follow the higher boards recommendations in order to annualized a five per cent salary increase which the trustees approved Friday for the last seven months of the current fiscal year. Special funds that raise was made possible through a special fund Transfer okayed last week by the state legislature and by spending part of a Reserve of accumulated research overhead funds. In order for that higher salary rate to be funded for 12 months next fiscal year new funds will be needed Corbally said and the tuition hike will help create those funds. Corbally said the Illinois state scholarship commission Issac had indicated it will request funds next year to cover higher tuition rates at the University and other state universities and to provide funds for a greater number of students. R. J. Godzicki Issac administrative director of Agency operations confirmed Corbally a statement later Friday. The Issca a budget request for next year is $51.4 million enough to provide funding to 70,000 students at the higher tuition rates Godzicki said. This year the Issac received $39.4 million enough to fund 59,000 students at lower tuition rates. Because of last minute cuts made in the Issac budget by gov. Richard b. Ogilvie in july about 4,000 qualified students were turned Down by the Issac and the rest of the scholarship recipients received an average 4 per cent Cut in their Grants he said. One third Cost the higher tuition rates proposed by Corbally for Illinois residents will be one third of the undergraduate instructional Cost As determined by a 1968-69 Cost study conducted by the higher Board and for non residents the full Cost of undergraduate instruction As determined by the study. In academic year 1968-69, tuition for Illinois residents was $85 per semester. In fall 1969, it was raised to $123 per semester and in january 1971 it was raised to the current level of $198 per semester. During that same period nonresident tuition went from $375 per semester to the current $627 per semester. Union facing Large loss service alterations studied.

By Larry Ingrassia daily Vuini staff writer the Vuini Union is faced with the possibility of losing Between $125,000 and $150,000 this year according to Earl finder Lollini Union director. Finder said the financial crisis has Arisen because of a drop in student enrolment of 1,700 this year no increase in student fees for the Union since 1962 while salaries increased 75 per cent during this time and the changing life style of students who no longer depend on the Union food service As their main source of meals. Faced with dilemma the Union is faced with the dilemma of continuing its Low priced services for food entertainment and guest rooms while costs for these have increased at a High rate during the past few years because of inflation finder said. Price increases last year were the first increase in eight years he noted. Union officials must now decide whether the Union has the responsibility to continue the services it offers even though students staff faculty and guests no longer use them to the extent they once did he said. Food service finder added he did not know the cause of the loss of business but noted a we can not take another significant All services besides the food service cover both their indirect and direct operation costs he said and the unions deficit comes from its food service losses. He noted that a food service has never been a Money maker and in the past two or three years business has been even reductions in daily labor costs and an increase in food prices last year have Only offset the loss of business he added. Changes implemented in june on the recommendation of a consulting firm who studied the unions financial problems in january have not been sufficient to eliminate the deficit finder said. As a result the firm is returning this month to conduct another study and make More recommendations to alleviate the financial problem he noted. Any losses incurred this year must be paid for from the unions Reserve fund of approximately $140,000, so some changes will have to be made in services offered or in prices in order to avoid a loss this year and retain the necessary reserves finder said.
