Welling The Auocuiiid Prets Senate Finance Chairman John Pat Fanning was told Saturday that West Virginia's school teachers "aren't going to continue to be passive" about low salaries. The warning came when about 20 presidents of county education associations cornered Fanning as he left the Senate chambers Saturday following the brief legislative session that was observed by the educators. Fanning talked with the group for about 30 minutes, but afterwards. Cecile Gill, president of the Cabell County Education Association, said the session was "totally worthless. He had his mind made up before we started," she added. During the conversation she warned that teachers "aren't going to continue to be passive. We're going to have problems." she added, referring to the possibility of classroom walkouts. Nick Zervos. president of the Tyler County Education Assn. added since no election is coming up "we're in a stagnant situation. They're not in the mood to listen to anyone." The teachers wanted Fanning to call a committee meeting Monday and take up a bill that would give teachers a $700 pay hike. It would be in addition to a $500 pay raise approved during the regular 60-day session. Wolfe Reunion Due RIPLEY - The Wolfe Reunion is scheduled for next Sunday at Cedar Lakes near here. Descendants of Clora Wolfe Bush and Delphia Wolfe are expected to attend. Garrett Reunion Slated RIPLEY - The annual Garrett Reunion will be next Sunday at Shelter 2 at Cedar 1 Lakes But he told them there would be no such meeting. Fanning said the legislature planned to "take care of what was considered an emergency"--the highway maintenance funds-- and then recess until later in the year. Most of the teachers wore name tags with the message "I'm a teacher. I'm 49th and falling." That referred to the fact that West Virginia's teacher salaries rank 49th in the nation. Zervos pointed out that whUe teachers got the $500 anwial pay hike, state police were given a $200 a month iccrease. "My job is just as important, if not more important than a state policeman. I can go to work at a chemical plant or a coal mine or move to Pennsylvania and teach, but I love it here." Zervos told Fanning. Elizabeth Mow of Upshur County asked Fanning to get the bill on the floor and "let the people vote. Then we'll know who is with us and who is against us." Fanning tried to explain that the legislature had to choose among numerous programs that needed extra funds. He pointed out a large chunk of the state budget annually goes for education and that the leadership has to be concerned with state finances for the next "one. two and even five years." He admitted there was a surplus of state funds now. but said they, may be needed to balance future state budgets. ·····^·^^M"^^^^--^-- golden pyramid savings.
