By means of lenses and mirrors, the new device collects and focuses rays of the sun. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Wednesday, June 14, the iMth day of 1972. Today is Flag Day. There are 200 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history. On this date in 1775, the U.S. Army was founded as the Continental Congress authorized the recruiting of 10 companies of riflemen. On this date: In 1777, the Continental Congress made the Stars and Stripes the national flag. In 1846. a group of settlers at Sonoma. Calif..'proclaimed the Free Republic of California. In 1922, President Warren G. Harding became the first president to make radio speech, broadcasting over station WEAR in Baltimore. In 1940, the Germans occupied Paris in World War II. In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the freezing of German and Italian assets in the United States. In 1944, American forces began the Pacific war invasion of Saipan Island in the Marianas. Ten years ago: A group of heavily armed members of the outlawed Secret Army Organization were arrested in east central France and charged with plotting to assassinate President Charles de Gaulle. Five years ago: A U.S. Mariner spacecraft was launched toward Venus to try to find out if the planet can support life. Price Didn't Support Higher Education Bill By BOB PRICE The higher education bill that passed the House and went to the President last week is another step to centralize more power in Washington than ever before over this nation's educational system. Additionally, this bill provides federal support for busing in specific instances. Because I am opposed to further concentration of power in Washington and because I am opposed to busing in order to achieve a racial balance, I did not support the bill. I believe the country has the obligation of providing an opportunity for our young people to further their education but not by creating more bureaucracy in Washington. We already have approximately 158 different educational programs being administered by 29 different agencies of the federal government. This bill would create a National Institute of Education, a new centralized educational planning center and give it a billion dollars. The one thing we do not need, in my opinion, is more bureaucracy. Two good anti-busing amendments that were in the original House version of the bill were dropped in the compromise final bill. The end result is that this bill allows federal funds to be used for busing. I also see provisions in this bill that could provide grounds for endless court interference in the drawing and redrawing of school boundaries. All in all, the bill is not, in my judgment, in the best interests of students, schools, higher education or the taxpayers of this country. I regret that the committee did not come up with a better bill, and I regret that Congress passed it: at least it did so without my support. It takes from 55 to 80 pelts to make one mink coat.
