Senate probing loans to Nelson

must recommend to the Senate whether
any action should be taken against
Nelson. An aide to the committee said
yesterday that it expects to take about
two weeks toanalyze Nelson's dealings.
"We plan to bring a lot of witnesses
but we don't think it will take more than
a few weeks," DeMaso affirmed.
DeMaso said the committee could
adopt any one of numerous options and
propose them to the Senate. He said he

final recommendation.
An aide to Senator Hart said the
possibility of requesting a member of
the Michigan Bar to advise the commit-
tee was also proposed at Wednesday's
meeting. The adie said it was likely that
proposal would be voted on at the com-
mittee's next meeting on Monday.

The Senate is scheduled to recess at
the end of June. Hart's aide said it was
unlikely the Senate would vote to expel
Nelson because there wouldn't be time
to finish the debate before the recess.
DeMaso objected, insisting the Senate
would continue meeting through July
until they makea decision.
Among the potential possibilities con-
fronting Nelson are a censuring and an
expulsion resolution.

CHICAGO officials want to make
sure the city's children reach average
national reading levels. The national
norm for eighth graders on the Iowa
Test of Basic Skills is 8.5. The Chicago
average is 6.8.
The officials said Thursday that
15,000 eighth-graders could not read at
the level of a beginning eighth-grader.
These are the pupils who must attend
the summer sessions.
Overall, 25,000 students at all levels
will be taking remedial courses in
Chicago schools this.summer, up from
2,000 last year.
In the past, Chicago schools operated,
on the basis of "social promotion," a
belief that "children should stay with
their age group, no matter what," said
Angeline Caruso, associate superinten-
dent for curriculum and instruction.
"During the social revolution, there
was the feeling that anything but 'social
promotion' was discrimination. But

Jacksonville, Fla., school officials

students are often the ones who most
need to work in the summer.
Florida students must pass the
literacy test to get a high school
diploma. They are given three oppor-
tunities to pass, and if they fail all three
times, they are awarded a certificate
rather than a diploma regardless of
their class grades.
