WINTON BLOUNT RESIGNED as postmaster general yes-
terday to head back to Alabama and a possible bid for the U.S.
Senate seat of Democrat John Sparkman.
As postmaster general, Blount oversaw the transition of the
Post Office to an independent, semi-autonomous private corporation
known as the U.S. Postal Service. He said Nixon had asked him "to
undertake.a complete reform of the postal service and I believe that
job is now done."
THE ADMINISTRATION'S $1.5 billion school desegregation
bill will come to a House vote Monday under terms that could
lead to its burial rather than its long-delayed passage.
The bill will be brought up under a procedure, designed for
quick action, which prohibits amendments, limits debate to -40 min-
utes and requires a two-thirds majority for passage.
The bill has met increasing opposition since the busing of pupils
to overcome desegregation became a burning national issue.E
THE SOVIETS have made their first deliveries of new Mig-21
jet fighters to Cuba in more than four years, Defense Department
sources said yesterday.
The planes arrived in Havana aboard a Russian freighter last
Sunday, a few days before the visit of Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin,
the sources said.
Western experts calculate the Russians have furnished Cuba
with more than $1 billion in military aid since Fidel Castro came to
power in 1959.
THE HOUSE has defeated an amendment to the higher
education bill which would have provided a new approach to aid-
ing needy college students.
The amendment would have entitled any qualified student from
a low income family to a grant amounting- to half of what he needs
to pay for his education, up to a total of $1,400 a year.
Opposition forces said it would lead to federal control of the
program and prove too costly.
DAYTON'S PUBLIC SCHOOLS have run out of money and
will close next week, giving 56,000 pupils an early vacation.
They could be joined by as many as 67,000 pupils in 28 othert
Ohio school districts that may go broke before Jan. 1. The prob-
lem stems from local rejection of tax levies but is compounded by
a general cutback in state aid.
Unless voters approve local tax levies in Tuesday's election,
schools could be closed until January when they could reopen on
