AJCommittee Hits Credit
for Non-Public School Tuition

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The American Jewish
Committee expressed its
opposition to income tax
credits for tuition payments
to non-public elementary
and secondary schools as
"an unsound expenditure of
public funds" which "would
undermine the principle of
separation 'of church and
state."
The AJCommittee also
declared that the adoption
of legislation now before
Congress to grant such cre-
dits would "reduce the re-
sources available for sup-
port of public education."
In a statement by its na-
tional education committee
made public by Mrs. Carol
N. Stix, education chair-
man, the AJCommittee
pointed out that the tax cre-
dit legislation, adopted by
the House of Representa-
tives and currently pending
in the Senate, would pro-
vide income tax reductions
for all parents who send
their children to non-public
schools, regardless of their
income.

The AJCommittee
added that if the princi-
ple of partial reimburse-
ment for tuition costs
were legitimate, there
would be inevitable pres-
sure to grant tax credits
for the total amoqnts of

dialogue via Washington
and dwelt on Egypt's impor-
tant role in a future final
settlement of the West
Bank and, especially, the
Gaza Strip issues. He ap-
pears to believe, as do the
Americans, that only a posi-
tive reply by Israel indicat-
ing flexibility and a wil-
lingness to compromise,
could lead to a resumption
of the stalled peace talks
with Egypt.

Weizman also recom-
mended at last Sunday's
Cabinet meeting that Is-
rael accept Washington's
unofficial proposal that,
with respect to political
self-expression for the
Palestinians, it agree to
eventual quadripartite
rule between Israel, Jor-
dan, Egypt and the local
Palestinians. He stressed
that agreement would
have to be by consensus,
obviating the possibility
that Israel would be out

participants or forced to
agree to concessions in
later years that it does
not want to make.

Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan differed from Weiz-
man in that he stressed a
Jordanian rather than
Egyptian role not only on
the West Bank but in the
Gaza Strip where he would
prefer Jordanian to Egyp-
tian influence. Dayan en-
visioned co-existence with
Jordan on the West Bank
whereby Amman would
have the greater role in the
political and administrative
affairs of the local populace
while Israel retained its
control over security in the
territory.
Weizmann made a sur-
prize trip last week to Lon-
don and Zurich and has re-
fused to discuss the trip.
Upon his return to
Jerusalem he met with
Begin for 20 minutes.

creasing abandonment of
"inadequately financed
public schools." The end
result of such a process,
the AJCommittee in-
sisted, would be that pub-
lic schools would become
"isolated scrap heaps for
our society's rejects
whom private schools are
unwilling to accept."

While recognizing the
important' contributions
which have been made by
private ' and parochial
schools, the statement em-
phasized that public educa-
tion still constituted a
"great unifying force in our
pluralistic society. This na-
tion and its children will be
best served by increasing
the resources available to
make them better and more
responsive to our needs.
