quality graduates flow out. This isn't always true.
I think over-all, wehaveaaood Dost-secondarv
system of education in Nebraska that should be
improved further," he said.
Exon said higher education can be improved by
funding a state-wide system of vocational
technical colleges and providing money for
faculty and staff salaries.
During his administration, he said, there has
never been a serious University budget
disagreement that has not been resolved by
compromise. 1 would suspect that with the competition for
professors and everything else in higher
education today, the University is one of the
institutions that would be an exception to that
(the appropriation) rule," Exon said.
The governor said one of the things that may
keep the university budget from remaining the
same as last year is possible salary increases for
faculty and staff.
"I think people have to be compensated for
increases in the cost of living, whether they are
file clerks at the state capitol or head of a
department at the University of Nebraska," Exon
He said he favors a flat percentage increase in
salaries with an additional amount added on for
lower income groups.
Exon said he hopes appropriations to
vocational and trade schools are not taken from
those made to colleges and universities.
"I hope we don't reach the place where we start
choosing between funding higher education by
taking from one and givina to another," he said.
Exon said he probably will be staying out of
certain elections, toothe 1976 Senate elections.
"I've been nominated for the U.S. Senate by my
Republican opponent and his running mate Mrs.
Anne Batchelder," Exon said. "Clear across the
state there have been some very Interesting
statements they've made publicly, to the fact 'if
Jim Exon-wins'toe -governorship then -he's going
to be a United States senator in 1 976.' I appreciate
the confidence these people have in me.
"If I were going to run for the U.S. Senate in
1976.. '.then I would not have run for governor
again," Exon said. "I would have laid out of the
governor's race this time and then been in a
position to run for the Senate in 1 976. If I have any
ambitions in that regard. ..it would seem to point
at least to 1978 instead of 1976."

Chambers said he would change the welfare
program by first providing total state funding of
the standard of need, andthen trying to raise it.
The standard of need is the minimum level of
existence set by the State Welfare Dept. He
said the legislature then often appropriates less
than that amount, which results in a shortage
of funds for the department.
l would also insist on courtesy from
everyone who deals with the public, especially
in the Welfare Department," Chambers said.
"Discourtesy would be one of the quickest
ways to get fired."
On agriculture, Chambers favors state land
use planning because of what he calls the
increased corporate involvement in farm and
related rural businesses.
Land use plan
He said corporations that buy state land
should report their purchases to the state and
also their plans for the land.
Chambers stressed urban-rural and fanner

said, so that groups with divergent interests
"see corporations are the real crux of the
problem in today's economy."

Chambers said it was difficult forming a
consensus among farmers as to the problems
they face, "no one group represents all the
thinking of farmers. The large farm
organizations don't represent more than the
ones in the group."
