State-Supported Junior Colleges Are Advocated WASHINGTON. Jan. 13 IUP> — President Truman's Commission on Higher Education yesterday urged establishment of a nation-wide, Itate-supported syslem of community colleges to provide two years of free schooling. The recommendation was contained in the third of a series of six report.* by the commission of 28 civic and education figures. The commission recommended tiiat all states "enact permissive legislation under systems through the 14th year." Most, public school programs now embrace only the first 12 years- eight years of elementary and four years of secondary education. Extension of the public school .'•ystem for an additional two years would cut the cost of higher education for most students, the report pointed out, because the commuri'.- ty college sjslcm would permit many of them lo live at home as they now do to attend high school.
