University Budget, Fiscal Year (FY) 1974 President Corbally reported that, at its meeting of May 1, the Board of Higher Education reaffirmed its earlier advice to the Governor and General Assembly with regard to operating and capital budgets; that it approved an allocation plan within the total funds declared by the Governor to be available — noting, however, the serious effect if the Governor's total figure is accepted as final; and, finally, that it reaffirmed its support for full funding of the Universities Retirement System. At the same meeting, it was agreed that representatives of the Board and of the Systems should meet with the Governor to discuss support for higher education.
President Corbally also reported on the meeting with the Governor, held on May 11, with representatives of the Board of Higher Education, Systems Heads, and members of governing boards, including, in the case of the University of Illinois, Mr. Hughes. He noted that there was a mutual explanation of budget problems, from the Governor's point of view and from that of the universities, but that no decision or consensus was reached.
Mr. Hughes called on Chancellor Peltason who presented Professor John Haltiwanger, Chairman of the Urbana-Champaign Senate Council, who presented the following resolution adopted by the Urbana-Champaign Senate on May 14, 1973, on the subject of the University budget.
The Urbana-Champaign Senate of the University of Illinois hereby expresses its strong support of President John E. Corbally Jr. for his vigorous and courageous leadership to obtain adequate financial funding of higher education in Illinois in general, and the University of Illinois in particular, with special recognition of his statement at the May 1, 1973, meeting of the Illinois Board of Higher Education. It is our considered judgment that we cannot maintain, much less continue to improve, this University's present level of excellence and capability for serving higher educational needs desired by the citizens of this state, unless the budgetary requirements outlined in the President's statement are met for Fiscal Year 1974.
This Senate further urges the President and his staff, the Board of Trustees, and our Urbana-Champaign campus administration to continue all possible efforts to obtain this urgently needed state support, and to call upon this faculty for appropriate assistance.
Finally, it is proposed that the substance of this resolution be communicated by the Senate Council to persons and official bodies both within and outside the University.
OLD AND NEW BUSINESS
President Hughes presented the following resolution:
DEDICATION OF JAMES W O O D W O R T H PRAIRIE PRESERVE
A N D INTERPRETATION CENTER. CHICAGO CIRCLE(1) The Board of Trustees wishes to call attention to the dedication on this date of the James Woodworth Prairie Preserve and Interpretation Center, named in 1973] UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 267 honor of a pioneer entrepreneur and public servant of the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois.
The preserve, acquired by the University in 1968 for the Chicago Circle campus and located at Glenview just outside Chicago, consists of some five acres of land which contains the last known tract of virgin prairie in the northeastern part of Illinois. The native flowering plants and grasses, some extremely rare, are a valuable resource to students of ecology, entomology, population biology, and plant and animal taxonomy.
The facility which is dedicated today will protect the prairie and make it available for scientific, educational, and limited public visitation uses.
Thus the University of Illinois gladly joins with the Center's benefactor, John Woodworth Leslie, grandson of J. H. Woodworth, in preserving a priceless parcel of the Illinois prairie.
We mark this occasion with gratitude to Mr. Leslie for his gift, to Mrs.
Bernice Popelka who inspired and led a conservation effort and to Messrs. Gunnar Peterson and Jeffrey Short, Jr., of the Open Lands Project who collaborated with her in saving the area.
On motion of Mr. Forsyth, this resolution was approved.
