" • • School Spending Rockets Past Regular Consumer Index Hike By PATRICIA McCORMACK DPI Education Editor On the average, serving up education in public'schools last year cost $1,168.22 per student -some 211 per cent more than it cost in 1967. Many states spent more, many, less. From 1967 to 1974, the Consumer Price Index shot up 57.2 per cent. If school costs had grown by that rate, the average cos,t of educating each public school stu'dent last year would only be $870.71. A report on school spending -National Comparison: Local School Costs -shows that increases in fuel costs and raises for teachers were major factors in the annual education bill this, past academic year. For example, the per-student cost of heating buildings went up 49 per cent. The non-salary portion of the school bus bill went up 37 per cent. That is, the gasoline bill. All of this- plus a 14.1 per cent increase in teacher salaries. The National Comparison of Public School Education Costs is conducted annually by Market Data Retrieval Inc., of Westport, Conn., in cooperation with Macmillan Professional magazines. New York had the biggest school bills, putting out $1,887.02 or $718' per pupil more than the national average. ' The survey also showed Illinois tanks second with an average of $1,624.56 per student. On the low side, Arkansas spent the , least of any school district nationwide -an average of $604.21 per student per year. According to the new survey, 31 states spent over $1,000 for the total net cost of educating each child. A year ago only 21 states spent $1,000. Grouped by regions, New York and New Jersey spent the highest for any area per student. This was $1,533. Conversely, Region IV had the lowest per pupil cost - $851.18. States in this region include Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas. What about the future? Statisticians at the National Com- parison survey center maintain the dramatic rise in educational expenditures in recent years "unquestionably mirrors society's concern for better education." However, the statisticians' are not at all certain that this concern will continue to be translated into additional dollars at the local level. In many localities taxpayers Want the line held. Cuts in state aid to local school districts' are being discussed as real possibilities in several states,'and A growing number of districts "are having budgets fejected or are performing major surgery before submitting budgets for approval" School administrators' will be Under greater pressure in the immediate future to at least hold the line ort costs .and at the same time provide quality education for all students. * The survey was base<J on data supplied to Market Data Retrieval by 2,693 school districts. •* one of FBI'S Caviar Popular 'RA-.tAf . i. I 'Most Wanted' Surrenders OeSpltB Recession HONOLULU (UPI) - For a man on the FBI's "10 Most Wanted List," finding a jungle island hideaway might have seemed idyllic. But Richard Dean Holtan apparently found it something less. Today, the bearded fugitive wanted on murder and robbery charges - was back in jail. By his own choice. Holtari surrendered late Saturday to a surprised policeman on the rural Hawaiian island of Kauai. FBI agents flew there and brought him back to Honolulu to be arraigned today before a federal magistrate ,on the murder and robbery .chargesr Holtan,'tattooed and wearing a colorful tank-top shirt, said he surrendered because he was "tired of running," and that he had been "living in the hills" of Kauai and Molokai, another rural Hawaiian island. i Meany Urges Tax Changes WASHINGTON (UPI) - AFL-CIO President George Meany urged Congress today to tax millions of dollars held by wealthy people and corporations. "The tax structure is rigged," Meany said. "Every dollar in taxes that isn't paid by wealthy individuals » and corporations because nf sowial privilege loopholes is one more dollar' that must be paid by someone else." In testimony prepared for the House Ways and Means Committee hearings on tax reform, Meany ticked off a list of tax changes sought by the AFLCIO. Meany said 1971 government data showed that 1 per cent of U.S. families with the largest personal income received 47 per cent of the total dividend income and owned 51 per cent of the market value of outstanding corporate stock. Chicago, Pittsburgh Banks Raise Interest To 71/4 Per Cent NEW YORK (UPI) - First National Bank of Chicago and Mellon Bank of Pittsburgh today raised their prime interest rate to 7*4 per cent from 7 per cent. The higher rate at Mellon was effective immediately. First National's rate is effective Tuesday. The banks followed the lead of trend- setting First National City Bank of New York which raised its prime to 71/4 per cent Friday. The increase in the prime is a result of Federal Reserve moves to tighten up the money supply and to slow credit demand. The prime is the interest banks charge their most creditworthy corporate customers. By FRED T. FERGUSON NEW YORK (UPI) - "The play, I remember, pleased not the million; 'twas caviare to the general." -Hamlet, Act II, Scene II. 'Shakespeare's quote might once have been applied as Well to caviar itself. But no more. "The demand is strong, the supply is short," said Arnold Hansen-Sturm, fifth generation of his family to run this country's largest caviar importing firm. He has long since removed the last half of that quotation from the backs of his tins of sturgeon eggs. The best -fresh beluga malossol, which Hansen-Sturm's firm imports from Iran -sells for $100 to $110 a pound. "There is a saying that if you have to ask the price you don't eat caviar," said Hansen-Sturm. He said that still applies to the fresh beluga and it sells well in the recession just as it did in the depression. "The wealthy are always wealthy." But gourmet cooking Courses and the energy crisis have put the one-time delicacy of royalty into many homes, if not on every table, Hansen-Sturm said. "Housewives are doing more and more entertaining at home both because of the energy crisis and tight money," he said. "They are serving caviar and pate de fois gras. But there is a shift to the less expensive grades." Not fresh and refrigerated but more salted and vacuum-packed and available on supermarket shelves are two- ounce jars of imported osetra - medium size eggs, rather than large -for about $10. The price for a comparable jar ranges down to domestic red caviar from salmon, $2.50, or lumpfish caviar, as little as 79 cents. Hansen-Sturm's Romanoff Caviar Co., exclusive distributor of Iranian caviar from the Caspian Sea, has hdd to rush by air from Tehran more and more of the fresh beluga - particularly favored by cruise ships for their status- conscious passengers -because of the growing shortage. "We Heard this week from Iran to expect a 50 per cent reduction in deliveries because the spring osetra catch was so short," he said. ' Contributing to the shortage, Hansen-Sturm said, are smaller catches resulting from the time it takes sturgeon to mature -15 years for beluga -and a reduction in feeding grounds caused by an annUal drop in the level of the Caspian Sea. Hansen-Sturm's ancestors established the firm in 1835 to operate fishing stations on the Volga River and export Russian caviar to Europe under a Czarist contract that erided with the 1917 Russian Revolution. After that, the firm managed to handle some Russian caviar, sometimes surreptitiously. Ferdinand Hansen came to America in 1859 and exported to Europe high- quality caviar produced in this country until the industrial revolution's pollution ruined the quality of domestic sturgeon at the turn of the century. In 1954, the Shah of Iran nationalized the caviar industry, run until then by Russians. Hansen-Sturm's firm became Iran's exclusive distributor and in three years Iranian caviar captured 90 per cent of the world market the Russians had dominated. Oil paintings of the relatives who've run the firm before him decorate Hanson-Sturm's Manhattan office. He talked of them and said one thing they have learned is "a short supply keeps the price high."

(UPI) - Negotiations aimed at ending a two-week strike .that has halted the flow of unemployment checks in Pennsylvania's big cities broke down Sunday night, the Union rejected what the state called its final offer. "I don't know when we'll have another meeting," said mediator Edward Savko after the eight-hour session. "Each side will have to reassess their position." i A court hearing was set for today and a ruling was expected On the state's request for an injunction against some 1,600 workers in unemployment compensation offices. The Commonwealth said the walk. out by the Pennsylvania Employment Security Employes Asodiation Has stopped distribution of unemployment checks in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. The association is part Of the same bargaining Unit as the Pennsylvania Social Services Union, which represents welfare case workers. Both walked off the job July 1. Lt. Gov. Ernest Kline came briefly to the negotiations Sunday afternoon and said an 11 per cent settlement was "the best offer the state can make." "It must b6 made clear we are deal' ing with a final line offer within the parameters of the AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employes) settlement, "Kline said. The state 'broke the silence it has kept since bargaining began with negotiator C. W. Myers, handing reporters A three-page outline of the latest proposal. It called for an average 11 per cent increase spread OVer the next two years for many union members. Myers said the increases would raise the average worker's salary by $1,300 to $1,600 annually. But union negotiator Edward Purcell rejected the offer, saying it was a "public relations gimmick." The union wants a one-year contract with an immediate six per cent pay hike. According to the breakdown provided by the state, most of the union members would get one per cent less than the Increase won on July 4 by the 73,000-member AFSCME.
