Monday Evening, November 25, 1957. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Nir»T Open Drive to Increase College Faculty Wages WASHINGTON (UP)—American college professors plan to use the familiar "A" to "F" grading system in a drive for a 100 per cent boost in faculty salaries. The new use of the grades would apply to faculty salaries in colleges and universities. Those doing the grading would be men and women most familiar with both the technique and the salaries—the professors. .Colleges and universities with the highest pay scales would ge c : ^an "A", while those with the lowest would be graded "F". A spokesman said salaries paid by some schools are too low even to rale even an "F". The project, difficult for anyone but professors since salary schedules on many campuses now are surprisingly difficult to obtain, is' planned as part of a full-scale effort by the American Association of _ University Professors .to publicize and improve low faculty pay scales. An association spokesman said it is difficult to state an "average" college professor's salary. A few, he said, receive a .salary equaling the $24,000-a-year niche usually reserved f o r football coaches and these throw off averages. But he said probably a fair median salary estimate /ould be in. the neighborhood of about $6,6000 a year. That compares with a recommended minimum for a full professor of $12,000. The spokesman noted some colleges have in the past six months hiked their faculty salaries—some as high as 18 to 20 per cent. Among those granting recent pay raises, he said, were Harvard, Yale, Swarthmore and the universities of Oregon, Wisconsin and Alabama. The drive is being undertaken at a time when leaders from Presi- = dent Eisenhower down are deplor-! w jfe call the sheriff.'"' ing inadequate pay received by Gilbert L. Ratliff, American teachers.
