MEA Officials Declare Impasse in Contract Talks Galesbura Register-Moil, Golesburg, Friday, Aug, 10, 1973 \9 MONMOUTH—An impasse In negotiations ov«f i MW contract for teachers in School District M hag been declared by the Monmouth Education Association. Carol Pulten, chairman of the MEA's negotiating team, said today that the teachers have been unable to reach agreement with the negotiators for the Board of Education headed by School Superintendent Richard Flynn. In the past, the school board and the teachers have signed contract agreements as early as March. However, negotiations this year did not begin until early spring. . While declaring the impasse, the MEA also called' lor intervention by a federal mediator to resolve the disagreements between the two sides. Pullen said that negotiations concern the hiring of an additional elementary physical education teacher, a revised report card, staff planning for in-service training days, the salary schedule, a maximum number of sick-leave days and the use of unused sick pay for retirement, an insurance plan, and personal leave days. Pullen said that involved in the disagreement was the fact that teachers in the district re ceived no pay increase last year. "Last year, after much soul searching and personal and financial sacrifice," Pullen said, "Monmouth teachers, concerned with providing continued quality education for the Monmouth children, accepted Mr. Flynn's position that Distrirct 38 was in a financial crisis and received no salary increase. "However, again as last year," Pullen continued, "Mr. Flynn's minimal proposal will fall far short of meeting the rise in the cost of living over the past two years, even though our district will be receiving a substantial increase in state aid." Pullen would not Comment oh the specific salary figures under negotiation. - i Flynn said in a statement today that the board of education Correspondent Mrs. Lorraine Stauth For News 112 S. 10th St. Phone 7344711 offered teachers 70 per cent of the state aid increase to the district. He said that the teach* era demanded W per cent of the increase. The board could not accept this demand, Flynn said, because it believed the demands would penalize some 75 other employes (non-teaching personnel) and might result in a bankrupt condition for the school dis-j lional MlarleS trict prior to the close of the 1 school year. "District 38 has borrowed to the limit during the past two years in order to keep schools open," Flynn revealed. A recent 5-year study of Illinois schools in the same size range placed Monmouth first in the percentage of money (70 per Icent) earmarked for instruc- MONMOUTH For Misted Copies Before 6 P. M. Phone 7344)11 Flynn pointed out. The offer of the board of education puts the salary for a beginning teacher with a bachelor's degree at $7,600 with a maximum of $10,600 after 10 [years of service. The master's degree teacher would begin at $8,300 and reach a top level of $12,525 after 13 years of teaching. ' Michael Kalosh, Jr., MEA president, said today that offer was rejected because this year, as all residents, are affected and very concerned about the tremendous increase in food, clothing and other items reflected in the cost of living. We feel that we are entitled, as all Monmouth citizens, to a salary which enables us to meet our family needs and pay our bills."

George McGovern's name appears, or ever did appear, on the birth certificate of an illegitimate child born in Fort Wayne during the 1940s may be headed again to court. The Indiana State Board of Health refused to honor an Allen Circuit Court order [Thursday which authorized the records be opened to provide a "full, true and exact copy" of the certificate alleged to list [McGovern as the father of an illegitimate child.

MAIN [a birth certificate McGovern as father of an illegitimate child born in the 1940s. McGovern denied having [fathered the child. The mother was quoted as saying she had known McGovern, but said he was not the father. Name Erased Efforts by the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel to clear up the matter revealed that a father's name had been eradicated from a birth certificate in the Fort Wayne Board of Health's records. State officials have turned to the attorney general's office for advice before complying with the order. "We are now awaiting advice listing |from the attorney general's office, but to my knowledge nothing has been done to attempt to force us to comply," said Kingston G. Ely, state registrar of vital statistics. Officials with the Fort Wayne Board of Health, who were ordered earlier to open their records for the search of the purported certificate, said they are now considering court action to prevent examination of state records also. The state health board was ordered Wednesday by Judge Pro Tern John Rogers to open its records when representatives of the News-Sentinel earlier in the day were denied access to them. It would be "utterly impossible" for the state records to have been altered, Ely said, so if McGovern's name was originally listed, it would still be there. On the other hand, it could not have been added subsequently. The original records and two separate microfilm copies are on file here for all birth certificates, Ely said. He said the certificate in the Fort Wayne health«office had been [made from material abstracted from the original at the time of birth.
