Student loan bill
stalled in House
By The Associated Press
With classes scheduled to begin soon at colleges and uni-
versities, legislators are struggling to revive t h e faltering
guaranteed student loan program.
The program has been stymied because the present inter-
est ceiling on student loans is seven per cent. Funds h a v e
dried up with the prime interest rate at 8%j2 per cent.
Backers of the program are now pushing legislation which
would authorize subsidy payments to banks which grant the
student loans. The subsidy payments could mean a yield tok
banks of 10,per cent on the loans.
But although the bill passed the Senate yesterday, efforts to bring
a similar measure to the House were blocked for the second straight
day. And Congress is scheduled to begin its three-week summer re-,
Democratic Leader Carl Albert of Oklahoma said after the Sen-
ate vote that barring some emergency no other legislative business is
scheduled before the recess. Albert said he did not anticipate the bill
would be called up today.
The proposed legislation could affect as many as 220,000 stu-
dents who might be denied loans in the fall.
Efforts by Carl Perkins (D-Ky.), chairman of the House Educa-
tion Committee, to push for action on the bill were hung up on a de-1
sire by some members to use the legislation as a vehicle for punishing
Another controversy has grown around amendments added by
Democratic senators to the loan program - which was proposed by
the Nixon administration. Republicans said that the. amendments
would hold up the bill until Congress returns from its recess. During
those weeks thousands of students will be seeking the loans.
One of the amendments objected to by the Republicans provides
that banks cannot require a student or his family to agree to main-
tain an account with them in order to receive the loans. The amend-
ment, offered by Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass) and other Demo-j
crats, passed by a 72-21 vote.
The other amendment authorizes $295 million of increased pro-
grams for low-income students. An attempt by Sen. Everett Dirksen.
R-Ill) to strike this provision from the bill was defeated by a 56-38
vote. The programs are the National Defense Education Act directc
loans, educational opportunity grants and the college work study
Republicans contended the amendments pushed through by Ken-
nedy in committee upset negotiations to rush action on the bill.
The Senate seemed to be aware of the possible difficulties facing
the program and yesterday wrote in an Aug. 15 date for the subsidy
plan to take effect.
Sen. Jacob Javits (R-NY), who proposed the date, said if final;
action on the bill was delayed until September he hopes the Aug. 15:
date would encourage banks to go ahead and make the loans under
the assumption that the subsidy eventually will be available,
The final bill passed the Senate by a 92-1 margin. Dirksen cast
the lone nay vote.
The bill would have come before the House Monday but was!
thwarted because backers attempted to suspend the rules, a procedure
which bars any amendments and thus would have prevented any anti-t
disruption riders from being attached.-
When Perkins asked unanimous consent of the House to use thisl
procedure, Rep. R. R. Gross (R-Iowa) objected. He and several other
members contended the House should have the chance to amend1

SOUTH U. CASES:

By JUDY SARASOHN
Mayor Robert Harris' committee to investigate police
brutality charges resulting from the South University Ave,
confrontations in June is expected to make a report on its
findings next week.
The two-man committee consists of James Sumpter, a
member of the Human Relations Commission, and Sgt. Ken-
neth Klinge of the city police department. Both members
have full authority to examine police records concerning the
South University incidents.
Both members have been investigating citizens' com-

to the 4th Circuit Court in Rich-

Haynsworth, born in Greenville,
Oct. 30, 1912, is a graduate of
Furman University and the Har-
vard Law School. He practiced law
in Greenville before his appoint-
ment to the 4th Circuit Court.
