FAGV TTTO (ARK.) COURIER NEWB THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1949 Housewife Coaches Boys' Ball Team And Makes a Real Hit With Players New School Aid Bill is Drafted M«otur« Offered by GOP Home Member* Sought at Compromise WASHINGTON. July 28. I/Pi — Three House Republicans today brought out a new and limited «ld-to-educatlon proposal mlnui parochial school limitations which have been the target ol Catholic denunciation. Although passage of federal jchool assistance legislation at this session was regarded as hopeless, the new proposal shaped up as a possible method of resculns school aid eventually from (he rclicious controversy now deadlocking it in Congress. The principal point ol dispute Is the prohibition in a bill awaiting House action, acainst use of (ederal money for private or parochial schools. Introducing the bill In the House were Rep. Morion <Ky) who first disclosed the idea, Kearns iPa) and Werdel 'Call.

In contrast to a Senate-passed bill and another by Rep. Balden (D-NC). the Kepublirati measure makes no provision for what its sponsors called "pork barrel features" of giving all stales Sri per pupil whether needed or not. It would confine aid to those states which, in relation lo national education standards, require it the most. Where the Senate and Harden bill would cost an estimated S300.- 000.000 annually, cost, o( the Republican hill was estimated by its sponsors al a maximum at S135.- 000000 a year.
