1AOB T1TBLVB l"".r BLYTHEVILLB (AKK.) COURffiB NEW» Eisenhower Hits Aid to Education General Torpedoes One of Trumon'i 'Must' Measures WASHINGTON, June Ota. Dwight D. Eisenhower appeared today to have gone m long way ttnrurd torpedoing one of President Traman'« "must" bills before Congress—federal aid (o education. A critical letter by the general now president of Columbia Univer- lity and acting chairman of the military chiefs of staff, plunged •chool aid advocates into gloom. It ntarted talk among some lawmakers about the possibility that Eisenhower intends lo make his political weight fell. tn a letter to Hep. Cwlnn (Jl-NY). Eisenhower opposed federal school aid grants to all of the states, a proposal already approved by the S«iat« and now pending in a House labor subcommittee. He said he favors helping only states that can't r.itse enough taxes to support a high level ol education • nd then only "under formulas that srould permit no abuse, no direct interference of the federal authority in education processes and no opportunity to expand the flow of federal money into areas where need could not be clearly demonstrated." See GOP Doctrine Some lawmakers thought Eisenhower paralleled Republican doctrine when he went on to assert that "the army of persons who urge irreater and greater centralization of authority and greater and greater dependence upon the federal treasury are really more dangerous to our form of govrnment than any eternal threat can possibly be arrayed against us." Those views didn't aeem to track with the policies of some of the leaders of the organisation Amcrl- o»n§ for Demorcatic action (ADA) who tried vigorously—and failed — last year to get the, general into the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. Eisenhower thus lined up against • a bill that has the support or both President Truman and Senator Taft (H-Ohiol. In this instance, he put himself in the same political camp with Senator Wherry of Nebraska, trie OOP floor leader, and House Minority Leader Martin of Massachusetts. The circumstances were such as to lend some credence to talk that h« may be doing a little advance testing of the 1952 temperatures, •Ithousrh Eisenhower as president of ttie country's biggest Teacher- producing university was in his own field when he talked about education. .- .
