Peronist Workers

BUENOS AIRES (M)-Former Dictator Juan D. Peron's followers
yesterday prepared their biggest weapon-the Argentine working man

important election victories gained last Sunday.
Nearly two million workers were under call of Peronist unions to
walk out tomorrow in a 24-hour protest strike and threaten to extend
it indefinitely unless the chief

All concerned-the government

if the lost time uptrend continues
Congress may step in with legis-
lation banning any strikes. They,

f _
U.S. Rejects Proposal
As 'Minor Variation'
GENEVA P)-The Soviet Union
yesterday proposed Western rec-
ognition of Communist East Ger-
many under a formula that would
give an international authority
some supervision over Western ac-
cess routes to Berlin.-
The Americans cold-shouldered
the idea on grounds the proposal
represents only a minor variation
in the overall Soviet approach to
the Berlin problem. It does not in-
volve a basic change that could
be accepted by the West.
Secretary of State Dean Rusk
and Soviet Foreign Minister An-
drei A. Gromyko have had num-
erous private talks about the Ber-
lin problem including a two-hour
session during the afternoon in a
lakeside hotel. American sources
said the issue remains deadlocked.
. Berlin Problem
Gromyko, at, a luncheon for
East Berlin Foreign Minister Loth-
ar Bolz, said that any solution of
the Berlin problem presupposed
Western recognition of East Ger+
man sovereignty.
The Soviet proposal called for
giving the East Germans control'
of the air, land and water routes
to West Berlin, isolated 110 miles
behind the Iron Curtain. But un-
like earlier Russian proposals
along these lines, it mentioned
for the first time an international
authority that would be empow-
ered to intervene in disputes.
Recognition of East Germany
The entire proposal, however,
was dependent upon recognition
of East Germany, something the
Western powers have never agreed
Unacceptable though the Soviet
proposal is, it represents the first
tentative change in the Russian
stand on the Berlin problem since
the Foreign Ministers Conference
of 1959.

Consider Using Violence
The underground supreme coun-
cil of the Peronist Party declared
in a manifesto, "we will resort
t violence if necessary" to re-
gain the victories the Frondizi de-
cree wiped out.
But there were slight, early
signs the 62 Peronist unions might
not get the worker support they
count on. A government trans-
port official announced after a
conference with Frondizi that
transport workers would not strike.
Coalition Cabinet
Frondizi's efforts, meanwhile, to
shape up a coalition military-civ-
ilian cabinet slowed to an unex-
plained hobble. A government
spokesman merely said consulta-
tions continued on the new cab-
inet. He predicted Frondizi would
announce its make up Sunday and
swear it in on Monday-the day
the Peronist unions threaten to
expand their strike to an indefi-
nite period.

WASHINGTON (m=--A bill for
tax rewards to businesses spend-
ing on modern facilities headed
yesterday for House action-after
being pared down, so its propon-
ents calculated, to balanced-budg-
et proportions.
The measure, a much-modified
version of one of President John
F. Kennedy's major business stim-
ulus proposals, got its latest over-
haul at a brief session of the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee, which had worked on it for
a year and produced a "final" ver-
sion last week. Republican minor-
ity members complained loudly of
"railroading" and "political elger-
The House Rules Committee,
which had withheld approval un-
til it could look at the slimmed-
down version, quickly cleared the
measure and House leaders set de-
bate to begin next Wednesday,
with a vote likely Thursday.
Effects of Bill
Exact estimates on the fiscal
effects of the bill were not yet
available, but generally it shaped
up like this :
Something more than $1 billion
a year in taxes would be forgiven
to businesses if they invested in
productive facilities. A firm could
deduct up to 7 per cent of such
spending directly from its tax bill.
For utilities the deduction would
be three per cent.
Moreover, there would be a lim-

jShould Parochial Schools 'Share Time'?

Only Co-ed Si
Contest On Cc

Associated Press Religious Writer
A revolutionary approach is be-
ing discussed today for solving the
stalemate over government aid to
parochial schools.
It's called "shared time."
Simply put, it would mean that
church school pupils would go to
public schools for some classes,
such as typing, geometry, physical
education and science, in which a
religious orientation was not
deend necessary.
Both churchmen and educators
-Protestant, Roman Catholic and
Jewish-have voiced keen interest
in the plan.
It offers "a refreshing ray of
hope at a moment in history which
something dramatically different
is. needed.. ." says the Very Rev.
Msgr. John B. McDowell, superin-
tendent of Catholic schools in
Pittsburgh, Pa.
Various Problems
Various problems, as well as ad-
vantages, are seen in the idea.
Generally, however, the reaction
has been that it might provide a
far-reaching and effective answer
to the prolonged, often bitter con-
flict over public aid for parochial
, schools.
Each religious group, however,
would be able to provide the
courses, or supplemental instruc-
tion, that it regarded as essential
for retaining the religious dimen-
sion to learning that is not provid-
ed in public schools.
Religious Factor
For instance, courses in history,
literature, economics and social
studies, in which the religious fac-
tor has a part, might be taken in
church school, with gym, industri-
al arts, mathematics and other
classes taken in public school.
This would bring children of all
creeds and kinds together for part
of the time, and thus provide "an
enriched educational experience,"
says Arthur Gilbert, consultant of
the National Conference of Chris-
tians and Jews.
IT also should help end "the di-
visive argument for public funds
for church schools," says Harry L.
Stearns, superintendent of Engle-
wood, N.J., public schools and
member of the United Presbyter-
ian Christian Education Board.

In recent weeks, "shared time"
has been a prime topic among reli-
gious and educational leaders.
Education Dilemma
Rep. Edward P. Finnegan (D.-
Ill) said in Congress the idea
might be the solution to the na-
tion's public-parochial education
small-scale "shared time"\'basis.
Says Theodore Powell, of the
Connecticut State Education De-
partment: "There is growing rec-
ognition that both broad demo-
cratic social experience and effec-

tive religious education are need-
ed. Shared time offers us a con-
stitutional means."
Among various benefits also cit-
ed are: easing the financial bur-
den on parents of parochial school
children for -total education,
strengthening their support for
public schools, giving them a part
in public facilities that they help
pay for, stimulation of all groups
to provide adequate religious per-
spective to education, easing of
tensions and closer understanding
between both school sectors.
