?AOE t— NATJCATTJCK NEWS .(CONN.), WEDNESDAY, NOV. 9, 1049 1 More Spent For Liquor Than Schools Gov. Bowles Claims Hartford, Nov. »—(UP)—The legislature convened in special session today to tackle the problem of •late aid to Connecticut municipalities for school building. Governor Bowles delivered a 4.000 word address, describing- the task which faces the lawmakers, who are meeting in their third •pecial session this year. Ax the governor described it, the job is to help Connecticut's children ''meet the problems of .an atomic age" -with something bet'-cr than a "model-T educjftion'. The chief executive renewed his fight for a J25,000,000 bond issue lo help municipalities build schools. This is one of the highly con- troversal points which is likely to embroil the legislature in a partisan fight, since Republicans are demanding that school assistance come from current revenue. The GOP also is demanding that the governor secure education funds by slashing the expenditures of other departments. Bowies' answer to that one was: Show me where. The governor al«o rejected Kc- publican propound that state ndu- cuUon aid be financed by a tax increase. The chief executive recommended that the 169 'municipal tax lists be equalized so that state aid could be given on the basis of need. He pointed out that now it's difficult to compare the financial conditions of towns because some assess at true valuation and many do not. The governor estimated that the stato should pay between one- quarter and one-third of the total school building costs. Although he denied that the state can foot the education bill from current revenue, he said that Connecticut is \vell able to ipay more for schools on a long- range basis. He noted that about as much was spent on tobacco in Connecticut last year as for pub- I lie schools—and three times as I much for liquor. Concluded the governor, "I think 1 there can be little doubt that the DEC. 1st thru 10th Eve. at 8 Matinees Dec. 3, 4 and 10 at 2:30 AJl seats reserved, $2, J2.75, $3.60 tax Incl.

The children of today cannot tomorrow meet the problems of nn atomic mfn uqtilpped with ihn modi'l-T education which our fu- churn obtalnud in the little red .^choolhouse." In ii prc-Hcsslon caucus, the Republicans decided not to limit ihe agenda to uchoof construction. In brief, they want it lo be a wide open affair. This gets the special session off to a bad start in view of the governor's desire to have only the school program taken up at this time.
