Professors At UA Urged To Organize · A state teachers union .officia has advised University of Arizona professors to organize so that they can bargain collec lively for salaries and fringe benefits. James Bacon, Phoenix representative of the American Fed eral of Teachers, AFL-CIO, told memebrs of the American Association of University Professors yesterday they will have to be come militant in order to be effective. "I invited him to speak be cause I wanted the faculty to get the union point of view since many of them asked for it," said Dr. Cornelius Steelink president of the 300 member UA chapter. On the national level, there has been strong pressure to af f i l l a t e the 100,000 membe: AAUP wit hthe 130,000 member teachers union. There is no plan for affiliation here. Amphitheater teachers lost 50 each in base pay last night jut gained a total of $11,000 in other benefits as their school xiard revised the salary schedule it set a month ago. In April, teachers' minimum starting pay was hiked from $5,100 to $5,250. Last night, the board, without comment, cut this back to $5,200 and voted to pay a higher rate for college credits earned by instructors beyond the bachelor's degree. Teachers now will earn $7 per year for every such credit. Most had been receiving $5 per unit, although a few who had earned credits after July 1966 were paid $10 for each. The move, according to Assistant Supt. Lawrence W. Cross, was aimed at rewarding career teachers. The board's original salary schedule was rejected formally by teachers, and negotiations continued through last w e e k . They had sought an over-all increase of about $100,000. The first raises granted by the board totaled $45,000. Last night's revision will cost the district about $11,000 additional. All raises are effective next fiscal year. On the basis of estimates made in the salary session last month, the total of $56,000 could add 56 cents to the Amphitheater District's property tax rate of $8.70 per $100 of assessed valuation. Trustees also unanimously adopted a resolution calling for studies to provide insurance benefits to the teachers, and establish a salary schedule which would be in line with those of other districts. The board's action brought no comment from the audience of about 100 teachers. After the session, Richard Evans, head of the committee which handled negotiations, said the new pay scale "is a little better, but naturally we're disappointed." He indicated, however, that teachers probably will .sign their contracts without further objections. "We've done everything we can, and the fact that we're a little better off than before is something," Evans said. As expected, the board also appointed Cross acting superintendent for the coming year to replace Dr. Marion Donaldson, who is joining the Maricopa County Junior College system. Suit Filed Against Two In Fatal Auto Crash Two Tucsonians involved in a The complaint contends that LITTLE BOYS PLAY COOL... 3 Boys StiU Missing In Caves Area HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) -- It has been nearly a week since Craig Dowell, 14, Joey Hoag, 13, and Billy Hoag, 11, were last seen, presumably entering one of the many caves that lead into a spider-like web of passages under the old hometown of Mark Twain. There have been no substantial clues discovered since the boys were seen last Wednesday afternoon, carrying a shovel end flash lights near Murphy's Cave. Early today, Dr. Stanislaw Vincenz, of St. Louis University, began modifying an electronic instrument normally used to detect mineral ore deposits. The associate professor of geophysical engineering was asked to join the hunt for the boys in hopes his instrument might locate the shovel and flashlights the youths were carrying. "I think the chances are very »hm," Dr. Vincenz said, "but we can't miss any chances. ' three-car vrash claiming the life of Mrs. Sharon Young last week are being sued for $250,000.
