Page 8 Cheney Free Press Friday, Ju*ne 18, 1965 State Funds Short for School Raises" = f More Special Levies Will Be Reqmred The recent torne gener- al&apos;s opinior, which spelled out the "legiskative intent" regard- ing teacher sahry increases for the next two years, pro- vides sctmol board members ad school district superinten- dents with several helpful guidelines, says Stace Superin- tendent Ios Bruno. "But, the opinion does rmt help these sch, ool d'tstriets meet the cost of these raises," Bruno said. "The costs wift ex- ceed the state funds appropriat- ed by the 1965 legi.sature by about $13,000,000. If the school districts are to carry out these raises, they will have to in- crease their 1963-65 special levy efforts by the $13,000,000 shortage."

This suggests teat nor- mal "n,crem,ent" in, creases: on the salary schedule may be considered a part of the in- crease and not "in addition to." The opirdan further con- fines the application f the "legislative intent" to average salary figures rather than to individual salary figures,. The increases specified in the ,appropriation, 1Nll caed for 5 per ,cent sahry raises fr all school district employees in 1965-66. For 1966-67, an added six per cent raise was indicated or teachers, a}on*g with anoth- er tire per cent for other em- ployees. According to the word- ing of the legislative a,pprap,ri- ati, on act, these salaries ,are to be improved "strbject to avail- ability of funds for all district functions." $13 Million Short An estimated $42,000,000 would be required to meet these sal, ary costs, Bruno ex- plain.ed. The legislature appro- priated $54,710,000 to dLstrib- ute to school districts: during 1965-67 both for enrollment growth and "improvements" which would in,clutte salaries. After provison for normal en- rRment growth is made, only $29,000,000 of the appropria- tion remains to be used for these improvements irn the oomrmon ,sffhool program . . . $13',000,000 less than needed. Since the- existing sahry base required special levy sup- >ort during the 1963-65 bie,n- nium, not only must these spec- ial levy efforts be repeated during 1965-67, they will have to :be increased to provide the fun, d,s which the legislature filed to appropriate to meet fl-,e cost of the vala rais,es Which it had designated. These special levy funds would have to be raised in ad- iLion to other funds which are raised by levies for school o9- orations. Many school districts will be required to turn to ecial levies for the first time. Pc. Dick Foland In Field Exercises In West Germany Pf. Laxa'y D.

Addressing the second an- nual Outlook Conference for Grain Growers, sonsored by Western Farmers Association, Moos said, "If I were to make a,ry suggestions to arm organ- izat}ons throughout this sate in this great competition of area against area and vocation against vocation, I would sug- gest you become more profes- sional and cooperative with your fell, ow farm rganizations. Do this so you can have a really unified effort when you go into your legislative h,alls." Senator Agrees Echo.n.g the s, arne theme, State Senator M:arsla]l Neill of Whitman cmznty tol,d the grow- ers, "We've gee to get our farm rops together and march clown a common road toward getting a property tax ceiling." "We've got to remember t'hat there are those in our state who don't want a new and lower ceiling put ,on lroperty taxes," Me,ill added. "We've got to win the property tax figh, t before there's an'other round of redistricting or we're dead ducks!" Describing legislation I>a:sed at the recent session, Neill said now even if ,a tax asse.,er in- creases his ratio of assessed values, a local taxing dstrict ea,nrmt get the additioal tax money wi, thout a vote of the people. "This }s the local con- trol we've been fighting tor," he said. On Reapportionment On he reapportionment bill passed by the legislature, Neill said, "I think we did the best we could. We guaranteed to our wheat counties a voice in the House of Representatives." "We have some grave prob- lems because we are in the mi- nority," Moes told the assem- bly. But he cited other minor- ity groups making ood strides toward their goals. "There is nothing that can tie u.p the legislature like a imssle between' farm groups," the former Lincoln county leg- islator said. We have to make up ,our ,minds . . . in our ef- forts, rin our resolutions by our farm groups . . . that some- place along the line we have a cooperative effort," Moas said.  __ ,hunter climber into a a'ee, so nobody wuld tke .him or 'a der.
