14 f reeport (III.) Journal-Standard, Thursday, July 17, 1975 U. Of Illinois Tuition Increase CHICAGO (UPI) - University of Illinois President John Corbally says he is almost certain he will recommend a tuition increase for the 1976-77 school year. "In view of the fiscal condition of the state, I see no way to avoid recom- mending a tuition increase for 1976-77," Corbally told the university board of trustees Wednesday. Taxpayers have borne the burden of educational costs for several years and it was now time to ask the "users" to pay higher tuitions, Corbally said. But he did not give a figure for the projected tuition increase. Corbally said Tuesday that the university would not seek an override of Gov. Daniel Walker's cuts in the state higher education budget, even though they will mean salary hikes averaging 7 per cent for university employes instead of the 9.5 per cent th,e larger budget passed by the General Assembly would have provided. Corbally said'he did not think the $49.7 million Walker cut from the $826.6 million higher education operating 'II Be Sought budget in Illinois-was unfair - espe- good as we had hopes for but they're dally considering the state's present financial picture. not disastrous.

Probably when everything settles budgets for next year are really good down, higher education in Illinois has budgets," he said. "They're not as done fairly well." v _ Midwest Governors To Meet CINCINNATI (UPI) - Governors of 13 states begin arriving here Sunday for the 1975 Midwestern Governors' Conference, a confab that officially is to deal with such topics as the economy and agriculture, but informally will be filled with politics, of course. The Monday-through-Wednesday conference will attract the governors of Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, West Virginia, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kentucky, Indiana, Oklahoma, Kansas and Minnesota. The families and aides of the governors alsp have been invited and with a • bevy of convention organizers and other interested persons, the conference crowd is expected to number several hundred persons. Panel discussions have been arranged on such topics as ''The Economy - Where Are We Going," "Health Planning" and "A Growth Policy for the Midwest," which is expected to center on agricultural and transportation development. Minnesota Gov. Wendell Anderson says he expects a lot of discussion on "the effect of the economic recession on our people and our budgets - what roles states might play in what is essentially a national problem." Nebraska Gov. James Exon says, "I'm sure there will be a thorough discussion of the President's new propo- . sal for redistribution of federal fuel tax money." The featured speakers will be Vice President Nelson Rockefeller on Tuesday and Donald Rumsfeld, the President's chief of staff, on Wednesday. President Ford will not attend. The informal exchange of information usually dominates such gatherings, but formal business sessions should spark some debate. After welcoming remarks Monday morning by host Gov. James A Rhodes of Ohio and conference chairman Gov. William G. Milliken of Mich-, igan, the convention gets rolling with South Dakota Gov. Richard F. Kneip moderating a panel discussion on Ihe economy. Another Monday morning panel Natures University of South Dakota government professor William Farber. Ohio Economic and Community Development Director Jim Duerk and Thurman Gaskill of Iowa, a former National Corn Growers Association apresident. Tuesday"s session on "Midwestern Growth" will be moderated by Rhodes and then Indiana Gov. Otis R. Bowen, a medical doctor, will appropriately chair a discussion on health planning. The conference ends Wednesday with Rumsfeld's speech and reports of some task forces previously set up by conference officials. The governors and their friends will be extensively entertained while they are here, with afternoons and evenings devoted to golf, picnics, tours, dinners and dances. Kentucky Gov. Julian M. Carroll, somewhat skeptical about the worthiness of such gatherings, says he's only going to attend one day. He says he will look at the schedule and pick out the day. he feels the most will be accomplished. The conference will be staged at the downtown Netherland Hilton Hotel. Pet Snake Found Under Owner's Car .SAUNA, Kan. (UPI) - Seymour, the seven-foot boa constrictor who slithered away from his owners' patio last week for a trip of nearly 100 miles, is back home. "He's in perfect shape," Constance Johnson said. "He wasn't angry at us and was happy we found him. He curled right up in our daughter's lap. Seymour was found Tuesday, lodged between the front grille and the radiator of the Johnson car. "When the snake took off the other night, we couldn't imagine it would go very far away," Mrs. Johnson said. "It's just too complacent. -< A former boa owner heard of the Johnsons' plight and told them his snake once escaped and was found curled around the exhaust pipe of his car. "So we took the car to a service station and put it on a lift," Mrs. Johnson jsaid. "Sure enough, you could see Seymour's tail sticking out of the front wheel." Mrs. Johnson estimated the car had been driven 50 to 100 miles since Seymour disappeared Friday.
