nne By WALT HALL (Staff Writer) A proposed budget of $2,011,15(5 for fiscal year 1974 was received by the Carl Sandburg College Board of Trustees at a meeting Thursday evening on the campus. The proposed budget represents an increase of #133,596 over the amount requested for fiscal year 1973. In receiving .the proposal from Dr. Loren Nicol, director of business affairs, the board directed that it be placed on file in the office of the business manager and made available for public review. The budget may be seen by the public until 7 p.m. Aug. 23, at which time the board will conduct a public hearing on the proposal. The board also passed a resolution seeking Galesburg annexation of the remainder of the campus property and dedication of roads to the city. At the present time only that pant of .the campus is located within the city limits. The report to the board stated, however, that if the streets are not dedicated to the city police and fire protection would still be continued. The board passed a resolution in support of requests by Carthage, Dallas City, Hamilton and Plymouth school districts in Hancock County for annexation to the Carl Sandburg College District. According to Dr. Nicol, this would represent an increase of approximately $259 million in assessed valuation for the district. Vote Passes The resolution passed in a 4 to 1 vote with board member Paul Piatt dissenting "because we're spreading ourselves too thin." A new salary schedule for faculty members was also approved. The schedule for a master's degree with no experience will be adjusted from $8,650 to $8,800 for a nine and one-half month term effective fiscal year 1974. The top salary for the s master's degree is increased from $12,075 to $12,425. The new salary schedule ranges from a bachelor degree with no experience at $8,100 to the doctorate degree with an experience factor of 18, for $16,850. The board also agreed to increase pay for part-time teachers who are beginning their third year of service and who have taught a minimum of three quarter hours instruction a term the state and regional aocredit- for the past two years. The salary will go from $10 to $11.25 per instruction hour. Other Boosts A rate of $12.50 an hour is to be paid to part-time faculty members who have been teaching at least one three-quarter hour course a quarter for the past four years. The board dropped associate degrees and less than associate degrees from the schedule as the salaries for those individuals will be based upon a combination of experience, formal training and technical exper- ley, Jr., vice president for in- ience. straction, $22,000 to $24,500; The number of days sick leave William D.

Assistant Agriculture Secretary Carroll G. Brunthaver noted in a speech that administration action this week to limit exports of soybean and cottonseed products was touched off by surveys showing exporters planned shipments — between now and the end of August—of 92 million bushels of soybeans and 2.2 million tons of soybean meal. Could Run Out "This level of exports would run the U.S. completely out of soybeans by the end of August and leave U.S. livestock industries short of their needs more than a soybean meal," Brunthaver said. Don Paarlberg, the Agriculture Department's chief economist, added that in order to assure adequate supplies for U.S. users until the new crop is harvested, it will be necessary to scale the projected export shipments back by an ciable" amount. Paarlberg declined to say just million by tons of .' ; .t. [it , 1 : 1 • 1 1; • H^L I.«J i b;i-!^ appre- how deep the cut will be. But other sources said that when the Commerce Department announces export allocations Monday, the projected 92 million bushel soybean export figure is likely to be scaled back by at least 20 million bushels and perhaps more. The export control was ordered to reduce livestock feed costs and protect U.S. consumers by heading off threatened production cuts in meat, poultry, eggs and milk. But it drew a sharp counter-attack from a soybean producer spokesman who warned it would boomerang against livestock raisers and consumers. Cut Potential Crop Harold Kuehn, president of the American Soybean Association, said the export crackdown would reduce the potential 1973 soybean harvest. Kuehn said soybean growers, who have indicated they plan to expand acreage to new record levels this year, now may scale back their plans in some cases. '•'Our farmers will not plow up acreage already planted. But they will slack off on planting the remaining acres for soybean production," Kuehn predicted. He said farmers will not risk planting high-priced seed if they think the export controls will reduce prices this fall to unprofitable levels. Meter Feeders' Fare Longer Persons who work in the downtown area are in for a surprise Monday — meters they will not have to feed two or three times a day. New 10-hour parking meters are being installed in two municipal parking lots today, Lyle Peterson, head of the city parking division, said. Work should be completed Monday. The meters will replace 39 4-hour machines at the Kellogg Street lot and 27 4-hour meters at the South Seminary Street lot. The charge will be five cents an hour and the meters will take quarters and nickels. Peterson said this is being done to allow those who work in the area to park without worrying about continually feeding the machines.

American Farm Bureau President William J. Kuhfuss, in a tatoment issued at Chicago, s called it "a political action that would hamper world trade relations. 'The imposition of an embargo on the export of (livestock feeds represents another political action in an eiffort to correct the earlier mistake of the price freeze," Kuhfuss said.' Says Action Mistake "I also believe it is a mistake for the U.S. government to abandon its contract commitments to overseas trading partners," hie said. (< This will have a deteriorating effect on our world trade relations on which millions of dollars and years of eflfort have been expended../' At Bloomington, President Harold B. Steedie of the 212,060- metmber Illinois Agricultural Association, said the embargo would "weaken the confidence" of foreign buyers and "bring further pressuaie on our already unfavorable balance of payments. "This is no time to add further control to an economic system which is already struggling from econom ic restri c- tions," Steele said.
