Successor to Carbonda It Fret Press Herrin Dally JMirnM Murphyiboro IndepimiMt THURSDAY JUNE 13 1974 Wholesale prices jump Washington AP Despite falling farm and food prices widespread increases on a broad range of industrial pro ducts pushed wholesale prices up sharply again in May the government said today The Labor Department re ported that wholesale prices rose a seasonaDy adjusted 13 per cent last month about the same as the rates in March and April but not as much as in the DecemberFebruary period Unadjusted the increase last month was 15 per cent Prices for farm products processed foods and feeds fell 22 per cent in May the third consecutive monthly decline Industrial commodities were up 27 per cent Consumer finished goods rose sixtenths of one per cent The rise in tiie industrial prices was described by the government as substantial and widespread It seems to prom ise for consumers a continuation of doubledigit inflation for at least the next few months since higher wholesale prices usually are quickly reflected at the retail level However the de cline in wholesale food prices frequently is not passed on to consumers in full as middlemen seek to retain profits Higher prices for metals fuels machinery and chemicals accounted for nearly three fourths of Jhe rise in industrial products last month the gov ernment said The decline in farm products was led by lower prices for livestock eggs milk fibers and grains Last months increase in prices pushed the Wholesale Price Index up to 1550 meaning that it cost wholesalers to purchase a variety of goods that cost in the 1967 base peri od Overall wholesale prices last month were 164 per cent higher than a year ago Industrial pro ducts were up 201 per cent and farm products processed foods and feeds were up 81 per cent over the year Mansfield and Scott defend wiretapping Henry Kissinger Washington AP Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield and Senate Re publican Leader Hugh Scott to day defended wiretapping in the interest of national security Meanwhile four senators in cluding Scott added their names to a Senate resolution praising Secretary of State Henry A Kissinger as a patriotic Ameri can whose integrity and ve racity are above reproach The new signatures brought the number of senators cosponsor ing the resolution to 43 Mansfield and Scott were asked about the wiretapping issue in connection with a con troversy over Kissingers role in national security wiretaps Kis singer said this week that he will resign if attacks on his in tegrity are not cleared up If tied to national security it wiretapping might be nee Trustees promise SIU campuses autonomy1 By Dave Butler Of The Southern Illinoisan Edwardsville The Southern Illinois Uni versity Board of Trustees to day approved maximum au tonomy for the Garbondale and Edwardsville campuses The board repeatedly decid ed against any effort to rein stitute a system president or chief executive officer for the SIU system The resolution proposed by Margaret Blacksbere of Madi son calls on the board to est ablish a procedure to revise the current administrative document to assure maximum autonomy within the system Todays action formalizes the process of decentraliza tion and separation of Cam puses that began in 1970 At that time SIU had a system president and chancellors at each campus In its action today the board does not call for a se parate board of trustees for either campus The action also retains the current system wide board of trustees staff In a second motion the board agreed to form a 20 person committee to recom mend how the maximum au tonomy can be attained Late this morning the board still was trying to decide which campus groups should be re presented on the committee Early plans call for 10 mem bers from each campus to be named by campus leaders 1 Todays action by the board lets the committee recom mend what future role the board staff will have with re gard to the two campuses The committee will make its recommendations to the board by September The boards action today implies that Brown and the board staff may not have power over the two campuses once complete autonomy is at tained Todays action came after more than two hours of dis cussion during an open hear ing on whether to change the current administrative setup The current plan gives James M Brown chief of board staff some direct power and authority over the two cam pus presidents However Brown does not have the sweeping powers of a system president Board Chairman Ivan A El liott Jr of Carmi was the only trustee opposing the statement on autonomy He said that the current arrange provides for campus au tonomy and that todays ac tion makes no substantial changes The leaders of several cam pus groups recommended a range of options for the board The options ranged from com plete autonomy te a system president Leasure reappointed Keith Leasure vice presi dent for academic affairs and provost of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale was reappointed today by the SIU Board of Trustees meeting in Edwardsville The vote was five to two In favor of Leasures appoint ment Trustees Willis Moore of Carbondale and Margaret Blackshere of Madison oppos ed the appointment Student trustees Matthew Rich of Carbondale and Don ald Hastings of Edwardsville also opposed the appointment although their votes do not count The boards action today al lows Leasure to begin his sec ond year as vice president despite vigorous objections from the SIUC faculty Todays action followed dis cussion of Leasures appoint ment during a sixhour closed executive session of the board held Wednesday night During that session repre sentatives of the SIUC Facul ty Senate appeared before the board to speak against Lea sures appointment Leasure and other top SIUC adminis trators were in the closed meeting during the faculty presentation Moore read a statement to the board today opposing Lea sures reappointment and stressing that the faculty could not work with him The faculty officials con cerns about Leasure stem Substantial evidence of sex bias unit rules There is substantial e v i dence that Southern Illinois University at Carbondale dis criminated on the basis of sex against foreign language in structor Ingrid Gadway the Illi nois Fair Employment P r a c tices Commission has ruled The commission meeting in Chicago made the ruling Tues day as a result of charges filed by Mrs Gadway last August She charged she was hired in 1970 at a minimum monthly salary of and failed in re peated attempts to have her salary adjusted Male colleag ues with similar qualifications hired during the same period as Mrs Gadway received con siderably higher salaries she contended The commission will now ar range a conciliation hearing be tween Mrs Gadway and SIUC to attempt to settle the com plaint Mrs Gadway isseeking back pay retroactive to August 261971 The hearing will probably be scheduled for this month and will probably be held in Carbon dale Mrs Gadway is oneof 104 teachers SIUC who received termination notices last Decem ber as part of the universitys reponse to budget cuts from his actions in the firing of 104 faculty members due to an alleged financial exi gency last December The board of trustees took no action with regard to re taining tenured teachers who are supposed to be fired later this month SIUC president Hiram Le sar told the board about five or six teachers have not agreed to accept new positions within the university or to take cash settlements and they will be fired The remainder of the 28 ten ured teachers who were to be fired either have accepted temporary nonteaching non tenured jobs or have taken cash settlements In other personnel items ap proved the board extended former president David R Derges leave of absence from July 1 until Aug 15 The board today agreed to pay Derge more than during this period Earlier the board had agreed to a leave for Derge during the period but without pay In August he is to begin teaching political science The board also approved former Carbondale police chief Joseph Dakin as an as sistant professor in the School of Technical Careers He is to head the twoyear law en forcement program at an an nual salary of The board also approved Kenneth W Serfass as the first Dean of University Pro grams effective June 1 His salary was set at a year essary Mansfield said But I certainly wouldnt want it used at random or indis criminately Scott in an apparent refer ence to the 1968 Omnibus Crime Control Act said that Congress has passed a law to cover sur veillance in national security cases It is proper to do whatever is legally permissible to secure the nations security he said However Scott said he would not make a judgment in indi vidual eases without knowing all the facts At the start of todays Senate session Scott announced he was joining as a sponsor of the reso lution praising Kissinger The bipartisan group includes six members of the Senate For eign Relations committee which Kissinger has asked to determine whether he lied last September about his role in na tional security wiretapping Mansfield indicated he does not expect the Foreign Relations Committee to which the reso lution wels referred to consider the resolution until it completes its inquiry Mansfield a member of the committee and a cosponsor of the resolution said that on the basis of the information he now has he has every confidence in Kissinger Kissinger told the committee last September that his role in the wiretapping of government officials and newsmen was lim ited to identifying persons who had access to information of the type leaked However news reports have told of a larger Kissinger role in the wiretapping Sen Barry Goldwater R Ariz said

China and elsewhere in the world Meanwhile sources told the Associated Press that FBI summaries of the material overheard on the taps were handcarried to the White House and delivered directly to the President and to Henry A Kis singer The taps were begun in May 1969 and in June 1970 the FBI was ordered to deliver the sum maries to H R Haldeman then White House staff chief rather than toNixon and
