FRIDAY: Hitchcock's FRENZY

Senate passed 73-12 yesterday a
$2.95-billion child-development
bill designed to fund the biggest
program of federally backed
day-care centers in history.
The measure was substantial-
ly modified from a 1971 version
in an effort to meet objections
of President Nixon who killed
last year's measure with a veto.
But, in its closing votes, the
Senate beat back several Re-
publican amendments to carry
out the administration views.
Some GOP Senators said they
believe another veto is likely if
the bill is sent again to the
White House in its present
The Senate vote forwarded
the legislation in to the House.
So far the Education and La-
bor Committee in that branch
has given no indication of when
it plans to act on it.
Sponsors said the bill should
fund 700,000 new day-care
spaces in its first year of full
operation which would double
the number now available.
The care would be free for
children of poverty-level fami-
lies; low- and middle-income
families would pay part of the
cost, and well-off families could
use the day-care centers by pay-
ing the full cost.
Sponsors said that millions
of mothers now work either
through choice or because two
incomes are essential for their
families. Often small children
are left to fend for themselves
now because no arrangements
can be made for their care.
But a few senators strongly
opposed to the legislation insist-
ed that it would accelerate ten-
dencies of families to break up
and deprive children of a moth-
er's care at the time they need
it most.
The Senate rejected, 60 to 25,

an attempt by Sen. Peter Do-
minickualo (R-Colo.) to reduce
the total allocations by $600
million. He said Nixon objected
strenuously to the cost. Defeat-
ed by 49 to 36 was an amend-
ment of Sen. Robert Taft Jr.,
R-Ohio) to cut back on the
number of local sponsors of
child - development programs
from 2,000 to 1,200.
He sought to do this by mak-
ing only groups in cities of 50,-
000 or more population eligible,
instead of towns of 25,000 as the
bill provided.
The Bill's managers were ov-
erridden with 45-38 adoption of
an amendment to permit the
government to turn control of
the new day-care projects over
to the states.
As the bill was originally writ-
ten it gave local sponsors such
as school systems and churches
the primary right tosetup and
run the day-care centers.
Sponsors emphasized that the
care would not be simply cus-
todial. The centers would pro-
vide many services, including

cal and social.
Sen. Walter Mondale ('D-
Minn.) said the program would
not only offer day care to the
children and their parents.
There also would be -part-day
services like Head Start, pre-
natal service in-the-home tut-
oring, and child development
classes for parents and prospec-
tive parents.
