CU Asks Faculty Pay To Average $000 a Year BOULDER (AD The University of Colorado asked the Legislature Thurs. la appropriate enough money lo raise the average faculty salary lo about annually. The request was made to a Joint Subcommitlee on Appropriations during a hearing on university's requested appropriation of $4,568,000 for Ihe Boulder campus and extension divisions in the 1959- GO academic year.

The subcommittee was told thai several studies indicate that faculty salaries among the nation's slate universilies will average close to $8,000 a year. "We are convinced a Ihe university cannot be (he kind of institution the people of Colorado need and should have unless the faculty salaries exceed al least (he average prevailing among state universities," Qulgg Newton, Colorado president, said. He said the university is finding difficulty in allracling arid retaining a faculty of quality caliber. "The university today finds that approximately two-thirds of the nation's stale universilies provide higher average faculty salaries," Newlon said. "The.

university's salary status among Hie public universilies in the north central and western states is even worse. Approximately three-fourths of Ihe public institutions in these stales have higher average faculty salaries." Water Rates Increased Inter-Agency Master Plan Has S. Platte Nod Col. David Hammond of Omaha, district engineer, told the Missouri Basin Inter-A committee meeting in Denver Wednesday that a master plan should be prepared under the direction of Ihe Colorado Water Conservation board for water problems on the Soulh Plalle river. On Tuesday, the Soulh Plalle Wa- crshed associalion endorsed a pro- xisal by Mills E.

Hunger that the Missouri fnter-Agency committee requested to create a Soulh Platte Inler-A commillec composed of state and federal agencies lo'prcpare a master plan. Bungcr is Ihe consulling engineer for the South Platte- Water Conservancy district. David J. Miller, Greeley atlor- ney and member of the Colorado ler Conservation hoard, stated Thursday a both- proposals would be presented to the board at its next meeling. Miller has served this year as the representative of Governor Steve McNichols on the Missouri Basin Inter-Agency committee.

Projects Proposed Authorized projects for flood control in. the South Platle basin are the proposed Chatficld dam, soulh and west of Denver; channel improvements and control measures on tributaries near Morrison, Boul der and Erie. Development in the Denver metropolitan area has removed Chal- ficrd dam from the list by making the project too expensive. Since the need for dam on Ihe Soulh Plalte still exists, however, the Army is searching for another suitable site.

Others attending included Carl Mossbcrg, president of the South Plalte Waler associalion, and Charles Plumb. Flood Control Dimi Only Unlikely Col. Hommand said there is litllc likelihood congress will au. thorize dams for the sole purpose of flood control. He said structures of the size necessary lo control high-peaking floods are difficult justify unless savings can be made by combining flood conlrol wilh other purposes.

These include irrigation anc power development. Col. Hammond said flood control should not be overemphasized to the poinl where it is given pri ority over olher waler-use plan ning and urged development ol hasin-wide pian lo develop mulli purpose dams.

This was by icling lhat a consent order which irovided for the monitors had orly Termilted Hoffa lo take office pro- isionally.

Godfrey P. monitor, and the monitor chairman, Martin F. O'Donoghue, brought the complaints before Letts that union officers were defying clean-up orders. The judge ruled that certain provisions of the union constitution dealing eligibility Teamsters members to be candidates for union office are invalid.

These provisions require that union dues must be paid one month In advance if members are to be qualified as candidates. Some employers, collecting dues from workers on a check-off system for later Iransmillal to Ihe union, 'have heen late in turning over (lie money and Ihus making certain members ineligible.
