Expect JFK'sC^llege Education Bill to Be 1st Major Issue inCbingress WASHINGTON—(i?*)—Senate Democratic leaders are planning to call up President Kennedy's college education bill as the first major legisla tion to be debated in 1962. They expect the measure to be passed by a good margin, starting the administration's program off with a vie tory in its initial floor test bf the session. Debate is tentatively set to begin Jan. 22 if the Du Pont tax bill is disposed of in the week ahead as now expected, one leader reported Saturday. Stalled in House Last year the Senate passed the president's $2.55 billion public school grant bill 49 to 34. Democrats think the college measure can win about the same vote. The elementary, and high school aid measure was stalled last year in the House. However, the administration has voiced confidence both branches will clear the higher education bill, especially since it does not involve the bitterly divisive issue of aid for church schools. A $2.67 billion college aj^ measure was approved 12 to' 2 by the Senate Labor Committee last September. Republican Sens. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., and John G. Tower, Texas, cast the opposing votes. The bill sent to the floor by the committee included Kennedy's recommendations plus a Republican amendment sponsored by Sen. Clifford P. Case, N.J., to add grants for community junior colleges. Matching Grants The five-year program set up in the measure would include $1.5 billion in loans for classroom construction, $924 million for college student scholarships, and $250 million in matching grants to help build public junior colleges. The bill authorizes 25,000 Even Too Cold for Stone Hippo HARPER WOODS, Mich. —iJP) —Even a stone hippopotamus decided that subzero weather in Michigan was too cold for comfort. The 31/2-ton hippo was found to be raising its feet off its frozen concrete stand in an outdoor court center at Eastland Center in Harper oWods, a Detroit suburb. The black granite beast had lifted each of its four hooves from a half-inch to two inches off the concrete, with a force that pulled steel support rods along with them. Eastland engineers had an answer, however, and said ice had been forced under the hooves by gale winds. Huber Hints Plans to Run for Governor MADISON — (JP) — Assemblyman Robert Huber of West AUis has indicated that he may be a candidate for the . Democratic nomination for governor this year. Huber, Assembly floorlead- er, said some legislators had asked him to run if Gov. Gaylord Nelson, also a Democrat, does not seek re-election. Huber said: "Neison is my candidate, and if he runs for a third term, I will consider running for lieutenant governor." Huber said he would not decide whether to seek either office until Nelson announces his plans. GOA HOLIDAY PANGIM, Goa —i/P)— The office of India's military governor of GOA announced Saturday that Dec. 19 will be a holiday in future. On that day last year, Indian troops completed the capture of Goa and two other coastal enclaves from the Portuguese., 4% ON INSURED SAVINGS Racine's ONLY FEDERAL Savings & Loan Assn. ||«00 Wstb. Ave. • ^eit Rkclne scholarships the first year, 37,500 the next, and 50,000 each for the next three years. These could not exceed $1,000 annually. The states would administer the program and a recipient could attend any college of his choice. The universities would receive $350 as a "cost of education allowance" for each scholarship holder in attendance. There may be floor disputes over both the classroom loans and scholarship provisions. Classrooms Needed Some state universities 'asked the Senate committee to approve grants for badly needed classrooms rather than loans. They said state legal limitations would make it hard for them to use loans. However, several senators on the committee noted that Catholic institutions would be eligible for this aid. They expressed belief loans would be constitutional but grants might not. As for the scholarships. Sen. John S. Cooper, R-Ky., said he likely would offer an amendment to change these so that part of the aid would be on a loan basis. Sponsors of the bill said they would try hard to defeat such a change. Cooper made a similar move in 1958 when the National Defense Education Act first was passed. It originally called for college student scholarships but these were changed to the loan program after the Kentuckian successfully amended the legislation on the Senate floor. Day to Get 'Junk Mail' PALO ALTO, Calif. — UB —^Postmaster Gen. J. Ed#a;fd iSaif is-"gang to get 400 pounds of mail soon—t rucked to him across country from a Palo Alto housewife who got so much "junk mail" that she saw red. It all started when Mrs. Robert Richard voiced her indignation over the low bulk rate mails. She invited Palo Altoans to dump their junk mail at her home. They left more than 6,000 pieces. "Really u n believable," says Mrs. Richard, president of Palo Alto's Republican Women's Club. It will cost $8.10 per 100 pounds to ship the stuff. But she hopes thereby to stir up a fuss which will result in action against what she calls "junk mail." RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN Jan. 14, 1962 See. 1, Page 15 Rep. Powell Cancels , Party in Senate Room WASHINGTON UP) Rep. Adam C. Powell, D-N.Y., who had reserved a Senate dining room *to publicize a commercial venture, said the luncheon will be held instead at a hotel near the capitol. The change was made because of a rule against using Senate dining facilities for commercial affairs. Powell said he did not know of the rule until objection was raised to the luncheon. "I am happy that this rule has been brought to my attention, since I would not want, in any way, directly or indirectly, to violate any of the rules of either house," Powell told a reporter. Powell scheduled the luncheon for Monday to outline plans for the World Life In­ surance Co., a new firm of which he said he is the director. The office of Sen. Jacob K. Javits, D-N.Y., said the Senate dining room was obtained for Powell in response to a routine request. Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., objected, and cited the rule against use of Senate facilities for commercial activities. Powell said the luncheon will be held at the Congressional Hotel.
