James Smith Soaring Newsprint Prices Face Papers NEW YORK (AP) — Newsprint producers have redirected tight paper supplies into a world auction in search of the highest bidders. And the move is causing concern in the newspaper publishing business. In the United States, newsprint now costs $213 per ton, up from $175 per ton a year ago. A ton makes about 7,000 copies of a 24-page paper. Some major suppliers of the U.S. companies have already announced that the price Will go up again this summer. Harold Anderson, chairman of the American Newspaper Publishers Association (ANPA) says price increases already have upset the normal cycle of doing business and additional hikes would cause "enormous budgetary problems" for American newspapers. The United States is by far the world's biggest consumer of newsprint, using 11 million tons annually. Japan, the No. 2 consumer, uses 2.4 million tons a year. In Europe, producers are successfully charging about $300 a ton and more for newsprint this year, compared with $200 a year ago. In South America, the price averages about $350 a ton; in the Middle East and India, prices for paper range up to $500 a ton; and in East Africa, where publishers pay the highest prices in the world, Canadian and Scandinavian producers command $700 a ton while black marketbrokers do a lively business at up to $84 a ton. On July 1, Canadian and Scandinavian producers, the world's leading exporters, are raising their asking price as much as 20-25 per cent more worldwide. What effect has the soaring prices had on newspapers? A number of American papers have had to boost newstand and subscription rates.

ISEA to Push for Fair Dismissal Procedure DES MOINES. Iowa (AP)The Iowa State Education Association will push in the legislature next year for a fair dismissal procedure for teachers, says ISEA President Robert Creighton. . He told a news conference Wednesday that teachers are being fired at a near record pace around Iowa this spring, partly because of a financial squeeze on school boards, but also for reasons not related to teaching performance or money problems. As a result, he said, hundreds of older experienced teachers are "teaching in fear—fear that they may be the next to be fired. "ISEA does not believe this creates a good learning environment for students. ISEA feels that teachers are entitled to the same rights of due process afforded to other public employes." Teachers aren't getting due process now because of shortcomings of the continuing contract law. Creighton said. He said under that law. any teacher who is fired can request a public hearing but it is held before the same school board which voted his dismissal. "It is time to eliminate the kangaroo court situation teachers now have where the board serves as both judge and jury." Creighton said. "If competent teachers are to do an effective job in the classroom, they must have protection against the political and economic pressures that now threaten their job security." He said ISEA will try to change the law so that any teacher being fired can appeal to an impartial board similar to those that hear appeals under civil service systems. "We believe that reasons for firing a teacher should be limited to performance in the classroom obtained through evaluation procedures jointly developed by teachers and administrators." Creighton said. The ISEA-this spring has had requests from more than 500 educators for assistance because of contract problems with local boards. It has provided legal and staff support for 60 members who asked private conferences and 13 who demanded public hearings, and has 32 cases ending in court to protect the rights of teachers, he said. Creighton said many of the contract problems have been caused by the legislature's freeze on school property taxes and tying state school aid to enrollment. He said this places small school districts with declining enrollment in an "economic strait jacket" and some boards feel the only way out is to replace experienced, higher-paid teachers with beginning teachers. No teacher who asked a public hearing on his dismissal this spring has been able to retain his job, even though in every case students and parents have gone to bat for the teacher, Creighton said. Shortage of Funds Help to Rasmussen DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Clark Rasmussen of West Des Moines considers a shortage of campaign funds a blessing in disguise in his race for Democratic nomination for governor. "Necessity is the mother of invention," Rasmussen said. "In some ways. I am thankful for that shortage. It has forced us to come up with ideas" to dramatize the campaign. One of those ideas was the bicycle trip Rasmussen has been making across Iowa to meet the voters before the June 4 primary election. According to reports filed with the secretary of state. Rasmussen had raised only $13,152 in campaign contributions through May 1, compared to $64,805 by James Schaben of Dunlap and $45,374 by William Gannon of Mingo, the other two candidates. "This points out the need to change the way campaigns are financed unless we want to restrict campaigns to those with personal wealth," Rasmussen said. Schaben's reports show he contributed $30.000 to his own campaign and Gannon's show he and relatives contributed heavily to his campaign. "The bike trip opened up a two-way communications between myself and rank and file people," Rasmussen said. "I have been able to talk to people who don't normally participate in political functions, like going to fund raisers or where candidates gather. "The trip has exposed me to farmers in the field. . . .to housewives, construction workers and young people who have been willing to ride with me," he said. Electrical Utilities Running Short of Funds NEW YORK (AP)-Faced with rapidly increased costs for fuel and a continuing need for money to expand, some of the nation's major electric utilities have run into a serious lack of funds. The weak financial position some face was dramatized rpppntiv when Consolidated Edison, New York City's power supplier, omitted its regular 45-cent quarterly dividend. Con Ed said it needed cash for escalating operating expenses and heavy capital spending this year, and so did not pay the normally guaranteed dividend which is the major attraction for buying utility stocks. The incident, and fears ot others like it, quickly focused attention on the industry's ailing finances. Stock prices and credit ratings plunged. Unless the securities market for utility issues quickly improves, the worst trouble may lie ahead, analysts say. And ultimately the consumer may have to pay even higher electric bills, or face potential brownouts. The Dow-Jones average of 15 of the nation's largest publiclyheld power companies has declined nearly 30 per cent since January, to its'lowest point in 15 years. Energy problems and inflation triggered the utilities' crisis. The price of foreign oil quadrupled last year, and consumer conservation efforts and higher bills lowered expected sales by utilities by 5 per cent in the first quarter this year. Combined, they were enough to send first quarter earnings plummeting, in some cases as much as 81 per cent below last year. Although much ot inflation in fuel prices will be recovered through increased bills to consumers, the first quarter Mgures were enough to shock investors into taking a hard look at the companies' financial positions. Within the past week, the high interest costs and the coolness investors have shown some new utility bonds has caused several companies, including Detroit Edison and Cleveland Edison to delay or scrap completely plans or new bond issues. Detroit Edison canceled 18 per cent of its planned five-year capital expansion program, warning the action could "effect service within several years." As a last resort, utilities have started to rely more and more on ban borrowings, where the cost of funds to businesses now runs in excess of Il a 4 per cent. The Federal Reserve reports that utilities are among the heaviet corporate borrowers currently. But as credit tightens, analysts say the only solution for raising funds may be increased rates to consumers. And should those increases not be granted, "the utilities will have no choice but to reduce their spending programs," according to John Ledda, utility analyst with Shields & Co. He said such an action could result in power deficiencies in the future
