HEW Accused Of Ignoring Segregation 1 WASHINGTON (AP) -- The · Department of Health, Education and Welfare was accused today of ignoring evidence in '·· its own files of widespread ra- . cial segregation in northern ; schools. ; The Center [or National Pol; icy Review said in a 117-page i report that "northern schools . today are far more segregated than those in the South" as i result of federal foot-dragging. The center. located at Catho. lie University here, based its '. three-year study on records ol ; HEW investigations in 84 north; ern and western school dis- " tricts. Some of the data was ob ' tained through a court order. William L. Taylor, the center director, said: "HEW has found substantial violations in north' ern districts but has failed ei .' fher to aid the victims of dis ; crimination or to cut off federal " dollars." · Among the 84 government "- civil rights compliance reviews ''. conducted in the North, the study found that 52 are stil open and unresolved "although many, ripe with bid age, are somewhat Inactive." The aver · age age of the cases exceeds 37 '. months. i "While a few staff investiga ; tions have been shaky," the re : port said, "HEW's files literally ; bulge with documented evl ''. dence of violations of laws." · The center said the mos ? common violations were dis ': crimination in assignment o i pupils to segregated schools ·hiring and assignment of mi inority teachers and classi ?fication and assignment of pu ' iiis to classrooms; and failure ;to help minority children with ' language and learning handi '. caps. · Public schools in Atfantii .City, Hoboken and Passaic »N.J., South Bend and For Wayne, Ind., Toledo and Day ton, Ohio, Utica, N.Y., and Ra cine, Wis., were singled out as .examples of alleged dis ; criminatory practices ruled ille i gal earlier this year by the Su · preme Court in another case in ' volving Denver,- Colo.

Slate Kindergarten Aid Is Asked LITTLE ROCK ,(AP) -- The slate Education Department reported Wednesday that school districts had applied for $7.8 million in state aid to operate kindergartens this year. Applications still are arriving, but most of them are from school districts that are raisirrg their original requests because enrollment has exceeded their expectations.

By JOHN CUNNIKF Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) -- The sting of inflation was greatly relieved last year for the lop executives of America's leading corporations through the application of higher salaries, bonuses and other contractual amounts of cash or stock. A survey by a management consultant firm shows that the chief executives of 581 of the largest U.S. corporations received total compensation averaging 8.5 per cent higher than the previous year. No less than 76 per cent of the 504 chief executives in office during both 1972 and 1973 received pay increases, said McKinsey Co., which has conducted the survey for 20 years. Fourteen per cent took pay cuts, Ten per cent received the same pay. McKinsey attributed the glit- ering figures to "the heftiest profit increases in more than 20 years." Profits of the 581 companies soared 29.1 per cent and iales rose 20.7 per cent over the previous year. But the survey revealed also :hat companies reporting profit declines were reluctant to lower the compensation of their chief executives. Among 82 showing lower profits, only 31 reduced the top man's com pensation, and 37 awarded increases. The highest average salaries for the biggest companies-those with more than SI billion in sales--were in the pharmaceutical industry, where total compensation averaged $316,000. Following in order were soaps and cosmetics, $309,000, alcoholic beverages 5294,000, diversified companies 5268,000 and tobacco $266,000. The lowest average , compensation for chief executives was found in the meat products industry, at $132,000, retail food chains, $144,805 and apparel makers, 5167,000. The average 'or all billion-dollar-plus ' dustries was $223,000. The word compensation was se^ by surveyors because executive pay comes in many forms besides salary. Most of ;he companies involved in the survey have long-term stock programs under which executives are awarded bonuses or provided with the opportunity to exercise options. Options, which permit the executive to buy the company's shares at a reduced price, provided some of the heftiest compensation gains. The survey showed that five executives had pretax options gains for one year in excess of $1 million, on p a p e r - a t least Sixteen showed gains in excess of $500.000, and 73 had gains of more than $100,000. . · The survey showed that 432 of the companies surveyed have annual bonus plans for executives, and that 110 concerns provide deferred employment contract credits, or income that can be received in the most tax-practical way.
