More than 800 Hoosier teachers returned to their homes yesterday prepared to push a legislative program developed at the annual Indiana State Teachers Association leadership conference here. They decided to push for a minimum salary of $5,000 a year for beginning instructors and at least $9,000 for teachers at the top of the experience and education ladder. "IT IS time we swept aside this ridiculous quibbling about a $3,800 or a $4,000 minimum salary for professional people and lifted our sights to higher and more respectable ground," said Robert H. Wyatt, executive secretary of the ISTA. He outlined a legislative program that also includes: Increased state support for public schools without additional local property taxes. Expanding state - supported school programs to include kindergarten and post high school levels. BETTER WORKING conditions to give teacher;, more time to teach. Safeguards for the Teacher's Retirement Fund. Further school reorganization. Strengthening the State Department of Public Instruction.

The Danville School Board has announced a proposed 1965 budget calling for a $4.52 tax rate per $100 of assessed valuation an increase of $1.54 over the current levy. Superintendent Merrill Vaughn said he expects the final rate to be lower, since the 1964 total valuation of $10,764,000 was used in fixing the tax rate to finance the proposed $746,250 budget. If the 1965 valuation is higher, the rate will decrease. Vaughn said the larger budget reflects proposed increased salaries for and non-teaching personnel" In the system, and the addition of three new teachers. Additional appropriations also were requested for new equipment at the new 12-room North Elementary School, which is scheduled to open this fall, he said. A public hearing on the proposed budget will be held at 8 p.m. Aug. 27 in the Danville school administrative office, 151 East Main Street. Much of the loot, including specially made rifles and revolvers, taken July 29 in the $16,500 burglary of an East-side executive's home, has been recovered, police reported yesterday. A 26-year-old man has been charged with grand larceny in connection with the looting of the E. Lyman McLallan home, 5710 East Pleasant Run Parkway, North Drive. McLallan is manager of Howard Johnson Motels in Indianapolis. James G. Bristow, R.R. 1, Box 225-A2, Indianapolis, was arrested last Friday, a day after police said they recovered $11,000 worth of stolen goods from Bristow's home. Police said a "tip" led them to the loot identified as from McLallan's home. FIVE GUNS valued at $2,600, taken in the burglary, were recovered from a No-blesville sporting goods owner, who said Bristow traded them July 29 for three guns in the shop and $125. Morris Hobbs, owner of Hobbs Sporting Goods, said Bristow claimed he needed money to pay bills and offered to trade the five weapons. The value of the three guns which Bristow accepted was about $475, Hobbs added.

Courtney declined to discuss the administrative headaches posed by the attorney general's ruling, other than to say, "We asked whether private schools should be treated differently than the public schools, and the attorney gen-eni! said they should not." In his opinion, Steers noted that its effect could pose a hardship for private businesses which are in competi-t i o n with school-operated bookstores and dining facilities. He said such inequities should be considered by the next session of the Indiana General Assembly. Caniiel OKs Tux Slash STAR STATE REPORT Carmel, Ind. A proposed 1Q65 tax rate of $1.18 33 cents lower than the present levy has been approved by the Carmel Town Board. The proposed $103,744 budget is about $3,000 higher than the current budget, but the rate has decreased because of a $500,000 increase in the assessed valuation, according to James F. Ritchey, board president. The board used an assessed valuation of $4,057,040 in fixing the figure for the proposed budget.

FRANK An official opinion issued yesterday by Attorney General Edwin K. Steers that most sales of books and meals at private and state-supported colleges and universities are exempt from the sales tax handed the schools a big administrative headache. Steers ruled that bookstore sales of merchandise needed for educational purposes and room and board charges for students and faculty are exempt from the 2 per cent sales levy. But the real kicker in Steers' ruling came when he said such bookstores and food sales are exempt only if the university operates such businesses. If bookstore and food sales are operated on campus locations by private firms or through leases negotiated by the schools, the sales will not be tax exempt. This could mean students at Purdue University would be required to pay tax on their textbooks since Purdue operates no bookstore. But In-d i a n a University students could obtain their books without paying the tax since l.U. operates its own bookstore. AND THE RULING by Steers, if adopted by the State Revenue Board, will force school bookstores to decide what supplies are needed for educational purposes and what are not. It also will force the schools to collect the tax from non-students purchasing merchandise in school bookstores and eating in school dining facilities. The ruling by Steers reversed a regulation issued last January oy State Revenue Commissioner James C. Courtney which called for all sales at both state and private schols to be taxed. MANY PRIVATE schools had objected to thai decision by Courtney who then asked Steers for a ruling.
