The Arkansas Democrat last School Boycott Pushed HOUSTON W -- About 2,000 Mexican-Americans h e l d a rally here yesterday to boost a planned boycott of Houston public schools by Mexican- Americans this fall. Romauldo Castillo, chairman of the Mexican-American Educational C o u n c i l here, asked the crowd to/urge all Mexican-American parents to keep their children at home when school opens Aug. 26, ; The boycott was called two weeks ago in response to a . federal court plan to order the busing of children who attend 22 elementary schools in the , 'Houston district, the nation's sixth-largest. The council says the desegregation plan mixes Mexican- Americans with Negroes but does not affect many Anglo children. There are . about 36,006 Mexican-American pupils in the 240,000-pupil district. Castillo said he was disappointed in the crowd of 2,000 at Moody Park. He had predicted 6,000 would attend. Later, in an interview, Castillo said strike schools would be set up a few days before schools open to provide education for children boycotting the system. Leonel Castillo, founder of the council, said at the rally Jhat the school board has the right to expand the pairing of schools to bring Anglos into The desegregation effort "but they don't choose to do so." Also speaking at the rally was the Rev. C. Anderson Davis, executive director of the Houston chapter of the NAACP. He "called upon Negroes and Mexican-Americans to unify to bring integration. month proposed the tax credit, other tax reductions and wage and price guidelines. At his, home in Kensett, Ark., Mills commented only briefly, saying Nixon's "game plan is excellent." Other congressional" reaction to N i x o n ' s wage-and-price freeze and other economic proposals was generally favorable,,, although some -Democrats said he should have acted: sooner. - :. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of. ; Montana called Nixon's program "a harsh but very necessary reaction. I'm delighted that his patience has run out." Sen. George McGovern, of South Dakota, the only announced Democratic presidential candidate, .said, "The wage-price freeze is about four years overdue. Much of the dollar's difficulties today coiild have-been averted had this step been taken earlier." But McGovern described the full package as "economic madness." He said the investment credit ."offers a new tax break for .big. business which will only trickle down slowly to the working man and woman and will not reach the small businessman and farmer at all." Sen. Jacob Javits of New York, ranking Republican on the Joint Economic Commit- · tee, said Nixon's policy is "bold and welcome." "The program is temporary and transitional but the Presi- . dent's mood is permanent and determined," he said. Sen. Wallace Bennett of Utah, senior Republican on the xSenate Finance Committee, said Nixon "seized the initiative in the domestic economic field with the same bold leadership he displayed in his recent China speech." Sen. William P r o x m i r e, chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, said, "the President's action is long overdue and may not go far enough in some respects." The Wisconsin Democrat said the investment tax credit should be permanent, income tax cuts should go into effect now and that he fears the surcharge on imports may drive up steel and;oil prices. . "The -most important next step is for the President to' follow up his 90-day wage- price free with intensive discussion with labor and management in order to work out , a more permanent program to hold down prices and wages to levels which are justified by increases i n productivity," Proxmire said. Official Says Welfare System Is Unworkable BOSTON W -- Gov. Francis W. Sargeant said Sunday night the public welfare system as \ve know it cannot be made to work and must be replaced by a federally-financed, federally-administered national assistance program. In a statewide radio and television broadcast, Sargeant said he will propose amendments to the Nixon-Mills assistance plan to the Senate Finance Committee and "will contact, g o v e r n o r s across America to Join me in working for this national assistance program. "I believe .it to be the first and most urgent priority in America today," the governor said. "I will work devotedly for its passage this year in the United States Congress." At. the same time Sargeant asked his listeners to telephone Uieir representatives in the Massachusetts House and ask them to reject the more than $50 million cuts made in the Medicaid program by the state Senate last week. Sargeant said the Senate's slashes in the Medicaid program would deprive of needed medical help not only welfare recipients but also "the so- called 'working poor' who are not on welfare."
