Meanwhile, full-page ads in New Hampshire newspapers today are urging that Republican John C'cinnally's name lie written in on Ihe Democratic ballots next Tuesday. And President Ford starts a two-day New Hampshire visit later today. rt snowstorm delayed Demo oral Jimmy Carter's campaign stops Wednesday and forced Sen.

The bill passed by the Senate allows income tax credits for contVihulions tnade to' private non-profit inbtilutiims of secondary or higher education. !l is similar to a House bill which passed earlier this year, except the S e n a t e measure adds secondary schools to those eligible for the lax credit. Institutions benefited by the Senate version include Northwest \a?.arene College. Nampa. College of Idaho. Caldwell. Kicks College. Uexhurg: Uishop Kelly High School, lioise: Nampa Christian High School. N'ampa; Greenleaf Friends Academy: and Gem State Academy at Caldwell If Ihe bill passes the House and is signed by the governor, ivho originated the concept in his budget address earlier this year, an income tax credit will be granted for contributions to those seven institutions. The lax credit is not to exceed 20per cent of the,total tax .due or SSO'fdr an individual or"10 per cent of the lax due or S500 for a corporation. Sen. Dean Abrahams. II- Caldwell. who supported the bill on the floor, explained it merelv added secondary institutions to the proposal suggested hy Gov. Cecil Anilrus and passed by the House. He said Ihe House bill will probably be killed in committee. Abrahams said Ihe fiscal impact of the Senate measure is estimated lobe $460.000. instead of Ihe S360.000 estimated under the House bill which only included private colleges.

The Nampa lawmaker explained that presently the school board hires only two classes of certified personnel - teachers and superintendent. Principals are teachers assigned lo that duly. The bill "inadvertently" segregates principals as another class of administrators. "Some principals would like to be over in the administrative side, but there are many more who do not." Weschc said. "I have yet lo find a principal who wants lo give up the righls and privileges of a teacher." Since an earlier vole on (he House floor turned down an amendment which would have defined principals as teachers who may be assigned as principals, Wcsche urged the legislators to eliminate the section defining principals. "This would eliminate Ihe controversy and still accomplish most of Ihe things we would want." Mosl of Canyon County's representatives joined Weschc in voling wilh the minority ngainsl the bill. Opposing its passage were Keps. Ralph dines, H-Nampa; Maurice Clements. R-N'ampa: Carroll R-Nolus; and Dorothy Reynolds. D-Caldwell. From Canyon County, only Hep. C.L. "Butch" Oiler. R-Caldwelt. voted in favor. Hut he pointed out in debate that according to his research, the tax credit will amount to only 5 per cent of (he cost per student under the public school system. ...Figuring 100 per cent as the cnsl per -student in public schools, "it will cost only about 5 per cent of that (in public funds) for each student in a private school under this act." Abrahams said. Hep. C.L. "Butch" Otter. R- Caldwell. who led an unsuccessful floor fight lo amend Ihe House-passed measure to include all educational grades. said (be Senate version "doesn't answer all my objections, uul it makes Ihe philosophy a lot more- acceptable lo me. "I view ibis (Senate i action as a triumph because nf nil Ihe trouble I raised in (be House," Otter said. In Ihe House, he argued dial the measure to include only private colleges was discriminatory. "This could be a very important step forward in the voucher system of education as well as toward recognition of the contributions made by (he private sector," Oiler said. He added the bill will probably- pass the House. (The previous measure passed CO-7). Oiler warned (bat in the long run, however, Ihe income lax level might have to be raised to compensate for Ihe extra lax credits.
