Nixon signs ed
bilhits busing
WASHINGTON WR) - President Nixon signed the $21.3-billion
education, bill yesterday but accused Congress of "clever political
evasion" by adopting what he called inadequate antibusing pro-
visions.
The administration has called the education funding authoriza-
tion a "landmark achievement" in aupporting projects from ele-
mentary to graduate school.
But Nixon vehemently attacked the provision that would halt
for 18 months any busing ordered by the federal courts until
all appeals had been exhausted.
He called it "inadequate, misleading and entirely unsatisfac-
tory" and declared if the proposal had come to him as a separate
measure "it would have received an immediate veto."
The new law actually contains three antibusing provisions, two of
which were originally designed to cut off federal funds for busing
and to restrict the power of the federal government to force local
compliance with busing plans, but which were made largely in-
effective by the terms of the final House-Senate compromise.
The third. to which President Nixon addressed his comments,
postponed the effective date of any federal court order requiring
busing until the time for all appeals has been exhausted.
Although the busing issue dominated discussion of the bill in
Congress, its education provisions are among the most important
ever passed by Congress. Taken all together, they authorize a total
of $21.3 billion between now and June 30, 1975, for a wide variety
of programs at every level of education.
Two of the provisions mark major new commitments for the
federal government in the field of education. One contributes federal
funds for the first time to the general operating expenses of post-
secondary institutions and the other entitles every undergraduate
student to a basic federal grant toward the cost of his or her edu-
cation.
Under the basic grant provision, a student can receive a grant
of $1,400, minus his expected family contribution, but the total can
not exceed half the cost of attending the institution.
Other aid programs are available to help the needy student
fill the gap. National standards for determining the expected family
contribution are to be set by the Commissioner of Education.

stood at 74, with 27 of these in
Pennsylvania alone. Scores were
missing.
The damage was incalculable,
as raging river waters tore hous-
es from their foundations, tossed
automobiles about like toys, and
smashed pleasure craft to bits.
The most preliminary of esti-
mates set damage at $160 mil-
lion in Virginia alone, w h e r e
commerce ground to a halt in
flood areas and stores, offices
and plants were abandoned.
A dozen or more rivers left
theeir banks. The mighty Ohio
was expected to crest 10 feet
above flood level at Pittsburgh.
Record crests were forecast for
the historic Potomac in Mary-
land. The Susquehanna rampag-
ed across 100 miles of Pennsyl-
vania countryside. Twenty-sev-
en feet above flood stage, the
James River sent its waters to
within a few blocks of. the Vir-
ginia state capitol in Richmond.
The floods were the worst on
record in New York and Virginia,
the cruelist in 35 years in Penn-
sylvania. President Nixon pro-
claimed Maryland, Pennsylvania,
New York and Virginia disaster
areas making them eligible for
massive federal aid. He did the
same thing for Florida, raked
earlier in the week by Agnes,
with a loss of nine lives.
Entire cities were evacuated
and tens of thousands of refugees
were herded into makeshift shelt-
ers. Prison convicts joined Na-
tional Guardsmen in rescue oper-
ations.
Some cities were cut in two
by normally placid streams that
bisect them. Others were isolat-
ed, their airports awash, their f
highways blocked by water or
landslides.
In Salmanca, N.Y., a fl o o d
protection system recently was
completed, its height based )n a
previous record floor that h a d
forced evacuation of its 7,000 re-
sidents. But the latest f1n o d
waters spilled six feet over that
level, and once again the popula-
tion fled their homes.
Water from the Rappahanneck
river reached to the rooftops of
homes in Falmouth, Va. Only the
roofs and smokestacks of t he
Bethlehem Steel Corp. plant out-
side Harrisburg, Pa., were vis-
ible above the waters of the
Susquehanna.

WA LKIE-TALKIE
Breal-in suspect ias
further li1nk to GOP

WASHINGTON (R) - James
McCord, one of five men ar-
rested in connection with the
break-in at the Democratic Na-
tional Committee headquarters
holds a Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) license to use
walkie-talkies on behalf of the
Republican National Committee,
FCC records show.
Police said earlier they found
three highly s p it icat e d
walkie-talkies in the possession
of McCord, whose firm was un-
der contract to do security work
for the Republican National
Committee and the Committee
to Re-elect the President, when
he was arrested early Saturday.
However, the Evening Star.
which broke the story on the
walkie-talkies yesterday, quoted
an FCC official as saying it had
not been determined if the spe-
cific equipment found by police
was the equipment licensed to
McCord.
FCC rules forbid the use of
any licensed equipment to com-
mit an illegal act. The Star
said the FBI is investigating
that aspect of the case.

Irving Brownstein, deputy
chief of Safety and Special Ra-
dio Services for the FCC, said
the three frequencies assigned
to McCord on behalf of the Re-
publican National Committee
were Class A citizens service
licenses with frequencies in the
ship-to-shore range.
He said McCord requested the
frequencies for security activi-
ties on behalf of the Republican
committee.
Brownstein said McCord, as
the licensee, would be respon-
sible for the proper use of the
transmitters. He also said li-
censees of transmitters could
only be prosecuted for illegal use
of the transmitters if prosecu-
tion showed there was actual
broadcasting-not just posses-
sion of equipment.
McCord's license was to ex-
pire in November but James
Barr, chief of the FCC Safety
and Special Radio Services, can-
celled the license- Tuesday-one
day after McCord was fired
from his job with the commit-
tee.
