Aid to Schools
Wins Tentative
House Victory
crs of federal aid for school con
struction won a tentative victory
in Congress today.
The House Education and La
bor Committee tentatively ap
proved a program that would run
for five years at 400 million dol
lars a year.
The committee also tentatively
approved a complicated system
of distributing the federal aid
among the slates. Half of the
yearly total would be allotted on
the basis of each state s school
population and half under a for
mula that would measure each
state's need for school aid.
The committee's action is sub
ject to reconsideration when the
whole school construction bill is
brought up for a final vote.
The duration and size of the
program tentatively agreed on
represents a compromise between
rival bills offered by Eisenhower
Republicans and liberal Demo
crats. President Eisenhower had ask
ed for a four-year, $1,300,000,000
program. Democrats had propos
ed a six-year $3,600,000,000 pro
gram. '
