US to Maintain Grant's Tomb ' r«W YORK tfl — The federal government has been asked to tat over maintenance of Grant's Tomb « sightseers' landmark since 1896. The Grant Monument :Assn., nonprofit organization, owns tit to the monument on Riversid Drive. However, maintenance fund have ben provided by New Yor City. The association said yesterday was appealing for federal funds be cawc of "constant worry',' entaile to receiving sufficient money tr malntalirtne monument. The organization rioted, however that the city "has been very decen about our requests." Cttet KOK't Power .

M M. - VhMM MM must go forward without federal funds, to meet their current and future needs. Present construction levels indicate their ability to do this." A fact sheet issued by tbe Department of Welfare in connection with the message estimated that school construction needs over the next five years will be about «0,000 classrooms. This summary also t-sald that state and local governments will 67,000 classrooms this year build at cost billion dollars. . The President set forth a picture o? a nation with school rooms already jammed and the shortage growing sharply. "Today, hundreds of thousands of children study under overcrowded conditions, in half - day or doubled-up school sessions, or in as schools," he said. Rests With States He cautioned that "the • responsibility for public education rests with the states and the local communities." • And, he said, federal action "which infringes upon this principle is alien to 1 our system." Nevertheless, he remarked that the nation's history, has shown the federal government "can and should" help localities solve problems of nationwide scope. "Clearly, this is the kind of situation we face today iu considering the school classroom shortage/' he said. In the program, there are a number of devices the administration figures will level out the educational situation throughout . the country. Chief among them are provisions to give, the biggest share of the money to the states that neei. it most- and giye sort of, a bonus to states .which up to now have done the best job in coping ,witii the school problem. "We must recognize that'some states have more financial resources than •others,"- Eisenhower said.-"We must recognize that a weakness in education anywhere is u weakness In the nation as a whole."' Three Ways He proposed three' ways of fulfilling this principle: 1. "In distributing federal funds, larger amounts per school-age child should be allotted to states with lower income per child; :. "In fixing matching requirements, states with lower Income should not be required to put up as. large a proportion of funds as higher income states." x 3 "As the states distribute these funds the highest priority should be given to school districts with the least economic ability to meet their needs." In calling for state matching lun^s, he said that "if federal funds are used merely to replace funds which otherwise would .or could be provided at state and Iocs, levels, there is no net gain of schools for our children." Eisenhower noted that many stnte legislatures have no session this year. He proposed that to the first year of the five-year program federal funds may, be matched either by states or local school districts. After that the states would •have to supply .the matching money. He called also for a formula that would cut the proportion of federal funds "for those few states which are noticeably lagging." Spokesmen at the Welfare Department said that' only eight or nine states fall ;] into this category and that the remaining 39 or 40 would get a type of bonus for good work performed.: Eisenhower noted that a serious shortage is imminent at the college level, particularly in the trainng of doctors, teachers, nurses, scientists and engineers:' . He said the federal government must leave responsibility for college building,- to states, localities, private groups, and institutions. However, he said; that he is going to apopint a committee of educators and citizens to set forth proposals on how best to deal with these problems. He also called attention to what he called the "sorely neglected field" of 'educational research. Such research, he said, could lead to the solution of how to educate more people, to staff the nation's - schools, to educate retarded children and those of special abilities, to combat juvenile delinquency and to understand the educational needs of a mobile population. Called For Study He said research studies should be conducted by _TJ.' S. Education office in cooperation .with state education departments, colleges and universities. The President paid tribute to those in the teaching profession, and by Implication suggested better pay for them. He put it this way: "Good teachers do not Just happen. They are the product <A the Reprimand Fatal TAIPEI, Formosa UK— Lin Tsat- tsao, 21, refused to eat after her mother told her not to wear "tomboyish and undignified" blue Jeans and spanked her.

East Berliners Put Pressure On West Workers BERLIN (IP) — The Communists are stepping up their pressure on the 37,000 East Germans working in West Berlin to quit their jobs and help "constrict socialism" in the East. Rgugees from the East report that "border crossers" are being threatened with forcible removal to remote parts of East'Germany unless they give up their West Berlin jobs An increasing number of "letters to the editor" in the Red press are demanding that-East Germans quit working for "West German rearmament." ;_' A letter in the Potsdam newspaper Maerkische Volksstimme accused Communist party'member Roman Koczelny of "betraying the cause of the working class ; and our East German _ republic" by working in the West as a painter. promptly inform his backers here .that he has no objections, the Associated Press learned exclusively today. This will be the first positive sign that the President; recovering from a September heart attack, will seek a second term. An extremely reliable source who was in Concord today told the Associated Press that Gov; Lane Dwinell will submit petitions bearing the required 100 signatures to the secretary of state's office here Monday morning. • • ' Dwindell declined comment. The source added that the President, through a highly-placed spokesman in the White House, already has informed GOP leadlrs here that the move meets with his approval and that he will so stite next week. , , BUDGET (Continued from Pag' 1) versal from recent years—because this indicates a rising trend of federal spending for some years to come. ' 2. An indicated sizable surplus of perhaps five billion dollars in the cash budget — because that could, in given circumstances, virtually force a personal tax cu$ The cash budget includes receipts for social security and other trust funds which are not counted as income belonging to the government. Such a surplus, if it increased at a time when business activity may be turning down somewhat, would increase the pressure to cut personal taxes. t This is so because a cash budget surplus means the government is taking more. out of the economy •than it is putting in. The quickest way to correct such a deflationary effect is by a tax cut. Negro .Deaths Willie A.
