Creston News Advertiser (Newspaper) - September 21, 1957, Creston, Iowa Creston news advertiser vol. 77. A number 148. Daily since dec. 5,1881 Creston Iowa saturday september 21,1957. Six cent Faubus removes troops to Appeal capital improvements is key legislators to discuss special session foe and Revenue Bond plan. Next governor Loveless recommended a similar program in his budget message to the legislature last feb. 5. A to carry this pro Grom capital improvements Forward i strongly urge the 57th general Assembly to enact the necessary legislation to enable the Board of regents to Issue Revenue Bonds to finance future con str Tion. This legislation will make it possible for the state of Iowa to spread the costs of urgently needed capital improvements Over a longer period and reduce the need for capital appropriations in future biennium a Loveless told the lawmakers. A Bill along these lines was drawn up and on March 28 passed the Senate by a vote of 42-7. However the measure died in the House sifting committee. per year Back in 1956 the Board of regents told the tax study committee a during the next ten years an average of $10,412,000 must be appropriated each of the five biennial to finance the capital improvements needed at the three state institutions of higher learning under the Board of regents if existing needs Are to be met by the present method of direct continued on Page 6 lege Are essential if Iowa is going to continue to Prosper. 3 Revenue proposals on feb. 16 of last year the state Board of regents told the Iowa taxation study committee of three ways in which Revenue could be obtained for this enormous building program. A direct method of state appropriation has been used in recent years. In the past Iowa has also used the proceeds from a millage Levy on the assessed valuation of the taxable property of the state to pay for the buildings. Now comes a third proposal. This proposition Calls for a portion of the tuition and fees paid by students be allocated to a special fund at each institution to be used to build and equip buildings and that the Board of regents be permitted to borrow Money pledging these funds to Complete the improvements As needed. This idea is not new As pointed out by the Board of regents in one of their appearances before the tax study committee. A other states have floated general Revenue Bonds supported by state revenues of various kinds to construct capital at their state institutions of higher learning a the Board stated. Actually this method would be similar to the one now used by the institutions to finance the construction of dormitories. One question in the minds of Many iowans is How did the state get in this predicament. The answer is three fold. 1. The average capital appropriation for All three institutions during 1930-40 was less than $150,-000 a year. 2. From 1945-55 the total amount appropriated by the legislature to the three institutions was a less than 20 per cent of the amount urgently needed and 3. Only $550,000 was appropriated for All three institutions during 1940-45 because of the War. But what makes the matter Ever More pressing is the fact that enrolments Are expected to double by 1970. Some political experts believe once the legislature meets it will decide on a Bond raising program. At least one thing is fairly certain a definite building program should materialize from the next legislative session. Ito Iid plan Why Are some people so positive that this Type of arrangement will be enacted into Law first it has had the proper study. The tax study committee named a special sub committee to make an analysis of the plan. This sub committee consulted financial experts who approved the bonding program. Later the tax study committee recommended the student building Ike Calls action step in right direction Quot experts differ on How effective it will be Little Rook Ark. Ltd a gov. O r v a 1 Faubus in a lightning move withdrew the National guard from Central High school last night and president Eisenhower today Caho i it a necessary step in the right Faubus action came shortly after issuance of a Federal injunction comma Ding him to cease using troops to Block school integration. Ilis attorneys immediately began various avenues of Legal Appeal. A was Long As this order is in effect and until its certain reversal it i Appeal i will comply a Faubus said. A Ces Ary step Eison Hewer com menting at Newport r i., or the development in the Little Rock integration dispute said a the action by the governor of Arkansas in withdrawing the detachment of Arkansas National go Iii from the Little Rock High school is a necessary step in the right direction. A i am confident that the citizens of Little Rosk and the state of Arkansas will Welcome this Opportunity to demonstrate that in their City and in their state proper order of a United states court Wall be executed promptly and without rep.

Hill Appeal the governor in announcing Hil decision to remove the troops from the High school added with jut Jawed determination that he will Appeal the Federal injunction j less than an hour later a few state troopers and one automobile carrying two Little Rock policemen were parked beside the school. But the officers said they were not ordered there. A just happened to Stop by a they said. Meanwhile people in l i t t 1 e Rock Are anxiously awaiting Faubush next move and looking to monday morning when classes re a sume at Central High school and the question of whether the negroes will try to enter. In a televised address Faubus said a i have instructed my attorneys to exhaust every Legal remedy to Appeal this he was referring to the ruling Friday by u. S. District judge us n. Davies who said Faubus had a a thwarted the plan for integration advanced by the school Board and approved by two Federal courts. The question you hear on every Street Corner now is a will they come to school monday a the negro students say they dont know. Their attorney Wiley Branton said a i Avo ulant want to say just yet what we will do. So in a single almost incredible Day the whole character of the Little Rock Story has changed from what seemed an Iron deadlock to a very fluid situation. Rules against Faubus. Judge Ronald n. Davies works in ids office at Little Rock Ark. The judge Friday issued an injunction ordering gov. Orval Faubus of Arkansas to Stop interference with integration of schools at Little Rock.
