I " ' - v . t Westmar College wresting coach Milt Martin listens U tie alarming news at Monday's public mcctlag aa lac colleg e f iaucet. President encouraged by increase in students 1 Continued from Page 1M from pledges and by the failure of the institution to secure a $500,000 note to help finance the facility. Construction on the building hat stopped, and contractors nave filed liens against the college for unpaid bills. However, Richardson said be is optimistic that as more pledges are collected the building will be completed. Westmar's debt steins largely from a sharp enrollment decline and the school's dependency on tuition income. Since 1970, the college's enrollment has fallen from 1,074 to S14 this fall, including about 420 full-time students. Income from tuition, which this year is $5,013 per student, accounts for 57 percent of Westmar's revenue. The college's Board of Trustees recently declared a financial emergency, and the equivalent of four full-time faculty positions were reduced or eliminated to help balance this year's $5 million budget.

The team finished with a 3-7-1 record. Administrative salaries are being cut 7.5 percent and wages of support staff are being reduced 3.75 percent. Richardson appealed to the community Monday night for financial and moral support He said if the college can raise another $400,000 to match the Berryhills' gift he would propose freezing tuition next year to help recruit more students. He said erasing the college's debt would save the school $175,000 in interest and other costs each year. During the last three years the deficits in the operating and general budgets have ranged as high as $391,000. Richardson said he was encouraged by a 1$ percent increase in the number of new, full-time students this fall, and he thanked the community for the support it already has given the college. He said administrators will monitor closely the number of students who don't return for the second semester. Best All Season Radial SIZE .

"I think peoplt cot their questions aonrered," Katy BaOafh, a chamber board member, said after the meeting, which was opea to the public. There was a lot of fear ia the cornmunity. I think bringing out the (acts helped." La the (ace of opposition from neighbors of the sit and residents elsewhere in the community, Ken Grand-quist, the track's promoter, told a capacity crowd that the proposed facility would be "first class" and that economic benefits would spread throughout the community. "People won't support something thit isnt real nice," he said. Last week, Grandqulst abandoned his plan to locate the 140 million track near Boodurant, because that city was unable to finance sewer and water improvements. He announced be was instead planning to locate the track, the only horse track licensed by the state, next to the Adventureland amusement park. Hundreds attended an informational meeting late last week and vowed to halt the project, with some saving they feared the track would decrease their property values. But Bill Master-son, manager for the proposed track, said that in most cases, values go up when tracks move next door. "Property values are not going to be negatively affected," he said. He also said track officials always take special precautions to prevent crime and there are problems "only in extraordinary cases." Grandquist said the track would provide 1,500 jobs and would pump $200 million a year into the economy, much of it benefitting Altoona. The city must approve a zoning change for the track, which will be discussed at a Planning and Zoning Commission meeting Thursday night Ap proval from the state racing commission also is required.

The girl's disease, herpes simplex II, is contagious and has no known cure, although new drugs can ease the symptoms and relieve the pain. The disease causes sores on parts of the body, and can cause brain and liver disorders in infants born to adult herpes victims. While doctors and school officials say teachers and other children can be protected by certain precautions, such as regular washing and disinfecting, Sayre has contended the risk is too great and the girl should not be enrolled where other people would be exposed. Sayre said he wants to have a hearing before Jan. 2 on his request for the permanent injunction. Chinese educators to visit Grinnell College Tk Reottter's lewe News Service GRINNELL, IA.
