On an experimental basis, the Undergraduate Library will amplify

No Revision Seen
"There will be no revision of
our budget as far as I'm con-
cerned," Smith declared.
However, he added, "We've got
to get salaries increased, and we'll
1 take this up at the board meeting.
If we're going to get good people
we've got to pay for them."
John A. Hannah, MSU presi-
dent, last week warned the board
that the school ranked ninth
among Big Ten institutions in the
area of professorial pay.
Union Protests Wages
The teachers' union, local 1310
of the Federation of Teachers
(AFL-CIO), protested against low
wages in a letter to Hannah.
The letter asked for a 20 per
cent boost in wages over ,each of
the next five years.
If all teaching salaries at MSU
were doubled by 1963, instructors
would receive between $10,000 and
$13,000; assistant professors $13,-
000 to $16,000; associate profes-
sors $16,000 to $19,000; and full
professors $19,000 and up.
The federation's secretary,Ken-
neth Macrorie, ankinstructor in
communications skills, pointed
out that football coach Duffy
Daugherty receives substantially
more than $20,000 a year, and ar-
gued that other salaries "should
be brought up to that level."
"Fairly Large" Segment
MSU Vice-President Thomas
Hamilton emphasized that the
federation represented a "fairly
large" segment of the faculty but
"does not speak officially for it."
At the same time he warned
that the school is in "immediate
trouble competitively" because of
low salaries.
Professors at MSU average $9,-
600 a year, compared to the $11,-
300 averaged by professors in Ann
"We are relatively worse off
now than at any time in recent
history," Hamilton said.
No Union Seen Here
Contacted last night, Marvin
L. Niehuss, University Vice-Presi-
dent and Dean of Faculties, said
he knew of no "teacher's union"
on this campus.
Niehuss said he did not feel the
legislature would appropriate a
20 per cent increase, because of
the state's financial problems. He
noted, however, that ten per cent
"seems to be a reasonable in-
In its budget for the 1959-60 fis-
cal year, the University has re-
quested an increase in teaching
salaries of about nine per cent.
None "Across the Board"
Niehuss explained the nine per
cent (representing slightly more
than three million dollars) would,
not be an "across the board" ap-
If the University receives the
money, about five per cent would
go for selective increases on the
basis of merit, and about four per
cent for general increases, he said.
