Faculty would move up one step on the pay scale in the second year — the increase would range between 2.5 percent and 5 percent — but would receive no across- the-board increase. In the third year, faculty would get a 2.5-percent increase, but no step increase. Members would get a 3-percent increase and advance another step on the salary scale in the fourth year. The system also wants the faculty to begin paying 10 percent of their health insurance premiums beginning in the second year of the contract, which would amount to $28 a month for individuals and $75 a month for a family plan, Gluck said. The union's four-year proposal calls for step increases each year, but no across-the-board salary increases during the first year of the contract APSCUF is seeking subsequent across-the-board increases of 2.25 percent, 3 percent, and 3.5 percent. Additionally, the union wants to maintain the traditional indemnity health insurance plan and expand benefits to domestic partners. Faculty salaries range between $38,269 and $89,907. The average full-time faculty member earns $67,800. The state system enrolls more than 101,000 students and includes Bloomsburg, California, Cheyney, Clarion, East Stroudsburg, Edinboro, Indiana, Kutztown, Lock Haven, Mansfield, Millersville, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock and West Chester universities. (On the Net: Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties: www.ap-; State System of Higher Education: Mycologists meet for convention Continued from page 1 members is in Connecticut, Plischke said. It's hard to put a finger on what excites people to pull up and eat wild fungi, knowing full well that nibbling the .wrong kind could ; leave them queasy, violently ill or ' dependent on-a liver transplant-to see the next day. "the majority of people get interested in mushrooms because of their edibility," Plischke said. "And it builds to where it's not just the edible ones that you're interested in, it's all of them." Some mycologists 'appreciate variety in mushrooms for their beauty. Others enjoy photographing them. Diehards who get beyond knowing the good mushrooms from the bad ones go on to study more than just their nutritional value and appearance. ' "Some mushrooms are used to make a dye to color wool," Plis- chke said. "They make beautiful colors. Some others, the hard, woody kinds, can be used to make decorative papers." But for the mushroom lovers who simply savor them stuffed or'as toppings on steaks, salads and pizza, the veterans in the -- group steer-them clear of-the poisonous mushrooms. '" "Some are readily identifiable but others are hard to tell apart. It took us a long time before we were not afraid to eat anything," Plischke said. When the mushroom-hunting portion of the conference is over, Schrock and other experts will sort and identify what the members have collected, sometimes using microscopes to distinguish the ones that look alike. ' Then come talks by Gary lin- coff, author of the National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms and Bill Roody, a biologist of the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources. And Gordon Callahan, a chef from the Mycological Association of Washington D.C., will whip up some mushroom-based taste treats. .-.. L .:.-•'. . "As'Onerday forays go^ this, is becoming .a very, .very successful event," Schrock said. ; "This is a very active group. You know how enthusiastic bird- watchers get. Mycologists are up there with the ornithologists in terms of their enthusiasm and getting out there 'and pursuing their interest." And there's one other thing mushroom lovers enjoy — an extra jingle in their pocket. "There's a mushroom called the black trumpet that you can buy in the store at five ounces for diree dollars," Plischke said. "We go out and find those in the woods for free!"

McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program grant. U.S. Rep. John Murtha announced that IUP received the grant from the U.S. Department ofEducation. Only 165 four-year colleges and universities in the nation, and less than 10 new institutions every four years, receive this prestigious grant, he said. The Ronald E. McNair grant is for institutions to use for stu- , dents from disadvantaged backgrounds to prepare them for doctoral studies in research and other fields. The program works closely with the selected students from undergraduate through doctoral programs. IUP will receive $209,258 for the first year of the grant, which will run for four years. The university's program will target 20 low-income, first-generation college students who have demonstrated strong academic potential and will work to prepare these students to acquire requisite skills needed for entry into graduate study and to earn a doctoral degree. The IUP McNair Scholars program will focus its services on e! T igible juniors and seniors only, as they will be better prepared to take advantage of opportunities provided by the program to enhance their success pursuing graduate study. Students selected to participate in the program will at minimum have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher in their major at the time of selection. Application forms are being developed and will be ready for students by the end of the fall semester. Selection of between 20 and 22 students will be completed by March 15. In addition to benefiting from a strong faculty mentoring process, program participants will participate in academic and other related types of support and follow-up activities until they complete their senior year. Courses in research writing and methodology, important tools for post-graduate success; will be offered as well as workshops to. explore the graduate school application process and preparation for standardized testing. Students also will participate in organized visits to select graduate schools around the region. The program highpoint will be a six-week residential summer research experience. Program participants will also have the opportunity to present their research at McNair national conferences and other appropriate discipline specific conferences.
