Figures Show Sharp Drop In Cigarettes , WASHINGTON (AP) — Amer- •icans cut down on their smok- ' ing by about 16 billion cigarettes since a government re'/port linked health hazards to •smoking, the Agriculture Department reported Monday. The cut-back was 6.5 per cent 'helow the first six months of last year. • The department said more '.'cigarettes are now being -smoked in the United States ";than in the period just after the .report was released last Jan. 11, but probably not as many as before the report. .' Meanwhile, cigars, pipes and --roll-your-own cigarettes are be- 'coming more popular. Sales of regular and small cigars are up about 12 per cent. The department estimated cigarette consumption for the year ending June 30 at 507 billion—a drop of 2 per cent from the previous year. "Data available thus far indicate that consumption dropped sharply following release of the (Jan. 11) report- probably 15 to 20 per cent. The severity of this decline has not persisted, but consumption has not recovered to the pre-report level. Whether or not cigarette use will resume the fairly strong upward trend that characterized the period 1955 through 1963 cannot be foreseen," the report said.

College Funds Allocation ® System Outlined to Senate BATON ROUGE (AP) - A Division of Administration spokesman outlined for the Senate Finance Committee Monday a. new system for allocating funds to colleges tinder the State Board of Education. James Fountain told of the formula set up for appropriations to the nine state colleges and universities under the education board as the Senate Finance Committee continued its scrutiny of Gov. John Me- Keithen's $572.4 million general appropriations bill. The committee was trying to complete work on the big money bill and get it back to the Senate floor. "We tried to equalize all the state college budgets," F o u n- tain said in explaining a number of increases granted to the colleges. He said the formula mainly was based on the number of credit hours taught to students, using 15 credit hours to equal a full time student. Fountain and Homer Russell, state budget officer, in answer to a question, said the formula did not apply to Louisiana Stale University. Russell said an attempt was made to put LSU on a formula based on three categories, including undergraduate schools, graduate schools and research and extension services. LSU agreed to come up with such a plan, he said, but at the last minute decided against it, and the time was too late to make the university go back and redo its budget as requested. He indicated this may be put into effect later. Fountain said each school under the education board, for in| stance, was allotted a basic $10,000 for travel expenses, and then allowed 10 cents per student credit hour in addition. Fountain said the administration division planned to make further use of a survey ordered by the State Board of Education at request of member Leon Gary, Houma, and others. The survey showed the exact number of professors, classes taught and use made of classrooms and laboratories by credit hour. Sen. Jackson B. Davis, Shreveport, wanted to know how it was that the colleges found money to give professors a pay raise when they said they would be unable to get by with funds allocated last year. Fountain said they picked up a lot of extra money from what he called attrition in professors. When one left a school he said, the school doubled up on! his classes with other profes sors or did without. Russell added many of the | lo the Senate floor when the colleges had demanded funds for needed equipment, but in Burbank Urges Lights On When Driving July 4th BATON ROUGE (AP) - Public Safety Director Tom Burbank warns the Fourth of July holiday weekend death count may reach 17 or 18 in Louisiana.
