A-8 Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, January 11, 1971 e proposes . . Private school aid study CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie, who Maintains that state-supported schools are "bursting at the seams," has proposed a study to examine the feasibility of using state funds to assist private colleges. Most state institutions have reached the maximum manageable size, Ogilvie said at a news conference Saturday, but places are available for 20.000 students in private institutions. Present universities would be forced into expanding their facilities or new colleges would have to be constructed, Ogilvie said. He added that funding private schools would be less expensive than any other alternatives. "Spending a substantial amount of state funds to let. the students we cannot ac- comodate use these private facilities will avoid Ihe far more costly course of building new public colleges," the governor said. Ogilvie met with several educators representing private Illinois colleges to discuss the possibility of using state funds to aid private schools. Dr. Arlo Schilling, president of North Central College and one of 10 educators who met with the governor, said a dual system of higher education is needed. "It would be a tragedy if the financial difficulties of the private system left us with a monolithic public system. The state and the nation need Boggs, Udall seek support for House majority post By EDMOND LcBRETON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The crucial post of House majority leader will be filled in little more than a week, and still the Democrat most likely to accede is unknown. Supporters of the two men considered front-runners- Reps. Hale Boggs of Louisiana and Morris K. Udall of Arizona—increasingly are seeking pledges of second round support from Democrats pledged to other candidates. Despite continued claims of a first-vote victory at the Jan. 19 Democratic caucus- especially from the Boggs camp—the current strategy is a plain recognition that no candidate has the magic number—128 votes— locked up. Boggs, the current Democratic whip, jumped off ' to an early lead in pledges, one reason being the vote associated with the liberal Democratic Study Group was divided between Udall and James G. O'Hara of Michigan. The DSG support is expected to coalesce behind one Review of bomb plant case asked Telegraph's Medill Service WASHINGTON - An Illinois man, charged with planting a bomb on an air plane, has asked the Supreme Court to review his case, claiming a number of his constitutional rights have been violated. Earle Cook, a former Coca- Cola plant manager in St. Charles near Aurora, says he was subject to an illegal search, unfair trial publicity, illegal eavesdropping, and a denial of evidence. Cook was found guilty by a jury and sentenced to 20 years in prison for allegedly putting a bomb in his wife's suitcase as she took a flight from Chicago to San Diego in November, 1967. The bomb exploded while the plane was aloft, but the aircraft was able to complete its journey. Cook was interviewed twice by FBI agents before being arrested. While he was being /questioned, FBI agents obtained a search warrant and ^removed certain items from 'i'. his home. The agents, after i'. careful analysis, said the ^'materials in the house mat; ched those retrieved from the bomb. ', Cook's lawyers contend this search was unconstitutional because it was not a limited •• one. The officers did pick up I specified wires, metal, and • "other "instrumentalities" of 'bomb making. The lawyers referred to an earlier case ;•" which said "nothing is left to f, the discretion of the officer 1-executing the warrant." ; Cook also charged that certain scientific evidence was withheld from him. He said this violated the constitutional provision that an accused man must be confronted by witnesses and a federal rule which says any "relevant" information or tests must be made available to an accused person if he requires it. But the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed this complaint along with the other charges of unfair trail publicity and illegal electronic eavesdropping. On the question of evidence pressnjtattOD, the court said: "We do not believe that this protective device should be subverted in it* use so as to become » gaming device with ». undeserved of these —presumably Udall— at some point in the balloting. Boggs strategists now claim 110 votes pledged, with a better than even chance of picking up the additional 12 needed from among 48 uncommitted Democrats. Bui they arc also angling for second-choice votes among supporters of B.F. Sisk of California, Wayne L. Hays of Ohio and Edward P. Boland of Massachusetts. Boggs, an organization Democrat with a voting record liberal by Southren standards, launched a campaign based on Southern support plus a broad appeal to urban moderates. S i s k ' s candidacy was backed, however, by some old - line Southerners who consider Boggs regionally unorthodox. But Sisk does not appear to have attracted wide support. Boggs' managers, while conceding Sisk's entry had dimmed their chances of a first-ballot victory, say their man will get most of the Sisk votes after the Californian is eliminated, if the caucus goes into repeated ballots. They make the same claim for the votes pledged to Hays and Boland. J & A Springman YORK FURNACES Godfrey, III. p|,. 4(i»-34JI MID-WINTER '71 CATALOG SALE!

"Not one private college in Illinois expects to be in the black in 1971, and this includes all the major universities," Burditt said. Ogilvie said among the areas to be examined are contracting directly with private colleges to enroll students and using the bonding power of the Illinois Higher Education Facilities Authority to ease the financial burden of private schools. Other possibilities, Ogilvie said, are granting aid to private colleges to support and encourage enrollment and increased use of state scholarship funds, which permit students to attend the Illinois-college of their choice, public or private.
