Rafferty Raps Federal Aid to 'Poor Children' Schools By VINT MADER ·A single section of a 1965 federal education-aid b i l l "should have rung all the burglar alarms in the country when it was brought up," Dr. Max Rafferty, state superintendent of public instruction, said here Thursday. This . section, the first of five titles in the act, qualifies a school district for federal money "if it has a certain number of poor children attending its schools," he told a ' gathering at the Bixby Knolls Towers, 3737 Atlantic Ave. Rafferty termed the theory that schools with "poor kids" need more money: "Bilge!" He quoted George Gershwin that "It Ain't Necessarily So." The afternoon s e s s i o n , billed as a press conference and attended by an audience of 35, heard Rafferty report: "The city of Beverly Hills recently qualified for an allocation of 83,000 of your dollars, and you know'how poverty- stricken and poor that unfortunate city is." Rafferty, himself a graduate of Beverly Hills High School, said Needles, where he was In the text of his speech,: Dr. Rafferty describes the letter, about 750 words long and written to him in pencil by a GI in Viet Nam, as "one which makes ridiculous any attempt at philosophical detachment." He said, when asked, he did not have the original with him and would not reveal the identitey of the soldier, whom he called "Joe." He said he received the letter in October of 1965, but in response to a question about the date it was written he replied, "I'd have to check." In the text of his speech, the educator recalled that he dispatched a "lame, inadequate reply," but by the time it reached a village north of Saigon, moved on superintendent, for "umpteen once schools will, qualify thousand dollars" because there are two Indian reservations in its area and it has a large, poor Mexican-American population. He d e s c r i b e d Needles as "an extremely wealthy district with a fine educational program." * + * * ALMOST ALL of the au dience comprised private individuals, who asked more questions than did the press representatives. Some attending were officials of the Presidents' Club, Long Beach women's group which spon sored the gathering, and a public meeting Thursday night questions f o r e v e r unanswered."

MAX RAFFERTY 'Bilge' Says Educator he .composed a hypothetical reply in which he assures the soldier of efforts to replace a program that "educated you for a world which never was and which never came -to pass." It comments on a current swing from the "exploded dogma" of the program c a l l e d "progressive education" to a new "education in depth" that the speaker says, "please God, will help to spare your children wl ou have had to undergo." At the afternoon confer nee, topics included the on nd off - campus demonstra ions at University of Califor ia at Berkeley and an analy is of student feelings there nd elsewhere. * * * * DR.

However, "the number em- racing variations of extreme eftism is not nearly so small," he said, including Socialists. He said he would resent )ias "just as much if it were ultra-rightist."

A-3 LOW BRIDGE FOR USS LONG BEACH Ship Ducks Through Canal By BUCK LANIER Naval Affairs Reporter A B O A R D THE USS LONG BEACH AT SEA -For a while it appeared that the tallest ship in the Navy would not be able to get to its namesake home port unless it backtracked and went around Cape Horn at the tip of South America. The Bridge of the Americas, which spans the Pacific end of the Panama Canal, presented the nuclear cruiser with a problem Monday. The 223-foot-tall (from the keel) ship wouldn't fit under the bridge. * * 4 * HOWEVER, Lt. M. E. Tree of operations sent Chief Petty Officer W. L. Cooley, data technicians W. Bridges Jr., J. F. Cures and H. H. Wilson, and deck force personnel headed by Chief Petty Officer Malcolm Mishoe topside on a "reduction mission." They lowered a 30-foot section of the mast and the ship steamed under the span as the rest of the crew cheered. Once under the bridge, the mast was lifted back into place and the ship cruised into the Pacific. The versatility of the ship's riuclcar power plant was demonstrated Tuesday when the ship cut its speed to two miles an hour. Reason for the slow speed? Panama Canal tugs had scratched the vessel's sides.
