    FAB to
funds for
pow wow
By John Kalkowski '
After extensive debate, the Fees Allocation Board (FAB)
Thursday night decided to recommend funding to the Council of
American Indian Students (CAIS) for the 1975 Spring Pow Wow.
The unanimous vote came despite a statement by Ken Bader,
vice chancellor of student affairs, that all minority student
organizations must have advisers from the Minority Affairs office
before receiving funds.
The FAB voted unanimously to mail Bader a letter explaining
last night's action and thanking him for his letter.
Members of CAIS have been boycotting the Minority Affairs
office since last spring, when Indian counselor Karen Buller
resigned. '
In his letter to the board, Bader said, "I believe that to deny our
minority students the opportunity to sponsor cultural programs is
to deny the entire university community a series of broad-based
educational experiences."
Bader said that CAIS must go through the Minority Affairs
Office to fulfill institutional obligations.
Present rules state that student organizations must have a
faculty adviser. However, Buller said the demand that CAIS have
an adviser from the Minority Affairs Office "is a clear-cut case of
discrimination" against Indian students. Another student, John
Two Birds Arbuckle, said, "The administration is telling us our
education is no good. They are telling us that we are ignorant
savages not able to care for ourselves."
According to Ely Meyerson, dean of student development, the
university administration cannot give CAIS funding for three
reasons: legal, academic and historic. Legally, the university must
meet requirements of federal grants for minority students, he said.
The university must also maintain academic standards for the
students, Meyerson said. He added that historically, the Minority
Affairs office is here to help minority students.

Budget 'disregards farmer'
By Don McCabe
Cutbacks in farm and rural programs in
President Gerald Ford's new budget show a
"serious disregard for the situation of the
farmer," said the director of the State
Department of Agriculture.
Glenn Kreuscher said the administration
wants farmers to increase production to provide
ample food for consumers and exports but it
does not offer the farmer any incentive to do so.
The 1976 fiscal budget proposes reductions in
rural housing and development loans totaling
$240 million, a $17 million cut in soil
conservation operations. Price support spending,
including direct payments, would be reduced to
$534 million. In 1973 these payments totalled
$4 billion.
Midwest in trouble
Kreuscher said Midwest cattlemen are already
in trouble from a depressed market and many of
them are going broke. Now grain prices are
declining, he said, and the outlook for summer is
not encouraging.
He said another drought like last summer will
mean disaster for many producers, but a good
year may not help either. Record crop
production will increase supply and depress
prices further, and farmers already arc beset by
high production costs, he said.
Some producers blame China and Russia's
cancellation of wheat contracts last month for
the lower wheat prices, Kreuscher said. The
administration and Secretary of Agriculture Earl
Butz should have suggested to the U.b.
Department of Agriculture (USCA) that they
pick up these contracts in order to relieve the
producer, he said.
Hold for price increase
The USDA could then have held the wheat for
relief or for other foreign markets until prices
increased, he noted.
If soil conservation programs are reduced and
producers are asked to put more acres in
production, some of which are not suitable for
agriculture, Kreuscher said the "stage is set for
the worst dust bowl ever seen."
Farmers will not be encouraged to use
conservation practices and if there isn't much
rain, the situation is right for a dust bowl, he
As much importance should be placed on
spending for food production as is placed on
military and relief spending, he said. Kreuscher
noted that the world food problem could
become a U.S. problem because of the lack of
grain surpluses.
"It will be an explosive situation when there
comes a time when we may not have enough to
eat," he said.
If the United States has the obligation to feed
the world's starving people, he said, society
should bear the coat and producers should be
paid an adequate price to produce the needed
