This was regarded by some of the Southerners as an adequate substitute for the amendtncnl of Rep. L. H. Founlain, D-N.C., pul into the bill in the House but knocked out by the Senate Labor Committee. It would have barred HEW from deferring approval of aid applications from school districts believed to be practicing segregation. Under its terms, the department would have been required to go through a lengthy, formal process to cut off funds. The Fountain rider was heavily op posed by the Johnson adminis tration. Peter Libassi, director o HEW's civil rights office, sak the Russell amendment woult "seriously weaken Ihe entire ne gotialing process" by which HEW brings schools into com pliance with federal desegrega lion guidelines. "School dislricls would take the position that there is no need to make a settlement with HEW," Libassi said in a state ment, "because they woulc have an additional grace perioc of up to 12 months before they would lose a dollar." It now lakes an average of 10 months- for a school district to complete the process through which federal funds are cut off. Sen.
