Reagan develops fever;
Brady no longer critical


-WASHINGTON (AP)-President
Reagan developed a fever which hit 102
degrees yesterday, a "limited setback"
which poses a remote potential for
pneumonia, but the chief executive still
is likely to be sent home to the White
House next week, his chest surgeon
Other doctors concurred with Dr.
Benjamin Aaron that the temperature
was a normal post-operative occurren-
ce. Meanwhile, the president got out of
his bed for the second straight day and
conferred with two senior Cabinet
members about to leave on foreign
AARON SAID at a midafternoon
briefing that the 102-degree fever in-
dicated that part of the president's left
lung was not functioning as it should be.
Ile called the development a "limited
setback," adding that there is no
evidence that infection has set in.
Fevers are common after major chest
or lung surgery, the physician said.

Meanwhile, the FBI confirmed that
the bullets that struck Reagan, White
House press secretary James Brady,
and two others in the assassination at-
tempt on Monday were "devastators,"
designed to explode on impact. Ap-
parently, the slug which hit
Reagan-thought to have been a
ricochet off the presidential
limousine-did not fragment, but the
one which struck Brady did break up in-
to at least four pieces.
Doctors reported that Brady, asked
by his physician how he was feeling
yesterday, responded, "I'm feeling
fine." He was taken off the critical list,
although he remains in intensive care.
Secretary of State Alexander Haig and
Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger,
who reportedly got embroiled in an
argument in the White House situation
room within hours after the president
was shot.
The New York Times reported
yesterday that Weinberger became
anguished after Monday's shooting
when he spied Haig, momentarily ab-
sent from the situation room while
Reagan was undergoing surgery,
speaking on television from the White
House press room.

Haig said military alert measures
weren't necessary, but defense sources
said Weinberger, while not ordering
stiffer measures, told military com-
manders to remain on their toes.
THESE SOURCES, who asked not to
be identified by name, said that when
Haig returned to the situation room,
Weinberger told him he should know
about the instructions given to the
Haig, according to sources, replied
"You should check the Constitution,
The sources were not sure what Haig
was trying to convey, and they said
Weinberger smiled, but made no verbal
The Times said the secretary of
defense told the secretary of state "I
was told I was in charge," apparently
referring to the "national command
authority." Under that chain of com-
mand, the defense secretary has power
over the armed forces in emergency
situations in the absence of the
president and vice president.
Speakes said the White House stood
by earlier denials that no disagreement
took place and refused to comment on
the quotations.

Report says students learn
more in private high schools


WASHINGTON (AP) - A major new
study concludes that students learn
more in private high schools than in
public high schools.
Sociologist James Coleman also said
he research indicates that although
private schools enroll fewer minority
students, their classrooms are less
segregated than public school
The report was paid for by the federal
government as part of a larger study of

high school students conducted last
spring by Coleman's National Opinion
Research Center. It is based on surveys
and tests given to 58,728 high school
seniors and sophomores.
THE FINDINGS could influence the
debate over whether Congress should
give tuition tax credits to parents who
send their children to private schools.
President Reagan also promised during
last year's campaign to seek such aid,
and Coleman also has supported tuition
tax credits.
An official of the National Education
Association sharply criticized the
report and challenged Coleman's fin-
dings. Sharon Robinson, the NEA's
director of instruction and professional
development, said private schools can
choose to admit students who are
motivated to learn while public schools
by law must be open to all.
Coleman, a University of Chicago
professor, said evidence shows "that
private schools do produce better
cognitive outcomes than public schools.
When family background factors that
predict achievement are controlled,
students in both Catholic and other
private schools are shown to achieve at
a higher level than students in public
ABOUT 1.4 MILLION, or 10 percent
of the nation's 14.9 million high school
students, attend private schools, in-
cluding 900,000 in Catholic classrooms.
Coleman said Catholic schools in par-

ticular are doing a good job in
educating students from different
family income levels.
"The evidence is strong that the
Catholic schools function much closer
to the American ideal of the 'common
school,' educating children from dif-
ferent backgrounds alike, than do the
public schools," he said.
are "subject to a caveat: Despite ex-
tensive statistical controls on parental
background, there may very well be
other unmeasured factors in the self-
selection into the private sector that
are associated with high achievement."
Scott D. Thomson, executive director
of the National Association of Secon-
dary School Principals, said yesterday,
"The most talented public school
student can compete successfully with*
even the most selective private school
Coleman said that opposition to
tuition tax credits "is frequently based
on the assumption that the private
schools function as a means for whites
to escape the racial integration that has
been imposed in the public sector."
But, he said his evidence suggests
that giving families $1,000 in a tax
rebate or other form would decrease
segregation "primarily through the
shifts of minorities - especiallyG
Hispanics and higher-income blacks -
into the Catholic schools."
