Education Board Recommends Big Cuts In Budget Requests LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Thei state-supported colleges and universities are asking the legislature to Increase their annual operating budgets by $11 million in the next fiscal year and for another $101.9 million for Construction and other campus improvements. The staff of the Higher Education Department has cut the requests for new operating money almost in half and has than one-fifth of the money reassigned high priority to less for campus improve- quests ments. Re commendations of the Engineer Testifies On Planned Freeway LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Sanford Wilbourn, a member ot the Little Rock engineer firm that participated in the planning and design of the Wilbur D. Mills Freeway, testified Thursday that the day the freeway is opened, it will be overloaded. Wilbourn said he did not mean that the highway would be obsolete, just overloaded. Wilbourn was testifying in U.S. District Court in the trial of a lawsuit filed by Arkansas Community Organization f o r Reform Now, which is seeking to have construction of the Little Rock freeway halted. ACORN has alleged, in part, that the environmental impact statement on the project is legally inadequate. ACORN has contended that H i g h e r Education Board, which meets today, are to be presented to the Legislative Council at Its budget hearing this fall. Dr. M. Olin Cook, department director, told the Legislative Council last month that the staff's emphasis would be on deferred maintenance and major repair and renovation projects at the institutions rather than on new buildings. The staff's report to the board reflects that. Of $19,205,215 of capital requests that were put in Priority I by the staff, $10,465,353 was for major repairs and renovations a n d 2,421,797 was for deferred maintenance work. The remainder --$6,318,065 -- was for new construction. Much of the priority work would be done at the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff, where deteriorating buildings have brought criticism from the De partment of Health, Edu c ation and Welfare. UAPB would ge $4.5 million of the Priority I funds. All but $1,130,000 of tha sum would be for repairs and maintenance. The University of Arkansas Little Rock, the only campus in the state with a growth nrob lem, would get $3.4 million most of that for new buildings Priest-Chef Hears Confessions In Cafe Kitchen CHICAGO (AP) - A Catholic priest hears confessions from some of the kilclicn help while performing his duties as a chef a Chicago restaurant.

ROTC Recruits Minority Students here, to recruit minority students in eight states to enroll in college ROTC. "The proportion of minority officers to enlistees is very low. We want to increase this proportion,' said regional coordinator Lucio Varela. Varela said that through speaking engagements and individual contacts, he hopes to inform high school seniors of the ROTC program and the 6,500 ROTC scholarships available.

Lavey, that alternatives should be considered, such as the "imaginative use of other materials." He also agreed that the alternatives such as staggered work hours, an express bus system and metcred access to the free way by means of traffic signals should be considered. The effects of the energy crisis also should be discussed, he said. The environmental impact statement did not address itself to these alternatives. Wilbourn said he did not know if it legally had to do this. Jason Rouby, director of Met- roplan, said if the freeway were not constructed, the downtown area of Little Rock would "deteriorate further." Rouby testified that already professional and commercial acilities have developed in the suburbs and "sapped the vitally" of downtown because there s no freeway.

It was not wise to set either loose. "Nakia," about a New Mexico deputy sheriff of Navajo heritage, is a wooden Indian story. And while I love variety shows, the only variety in. the Bono opener comes during the commercial breaks. One needn't expect much from from a cop show, but I was sort of keeping my fingers crossed that Bono's debut as a solo performer would somehow enliven the new television season. No such luck. His new effort may cast a pall if it continues at its non- pace. Sonny, whose top-rated CBE variety program folded lasl spring when he broke up Cher, his wife and show-bi? partner, appears just as glad to be back on TV as the studio an dience cheering his re-entry. He makes a few references to he absence of Cher, such as 'This is the first time I've been on the stage alone in 11 years' and, "Now I have to do my wn show, wash my own socks, o my own cooking and even my own sleeping." He also expresses gratitude e won't have to "worry about talian jokes any more," thuj ouching off a mock debate be- ween two ladies in the au- liehce that ends with, "Right in, pizza face!"
