of educational interests that the state
appropriate $25,000,000 a year forj
public school aid, in addition to the
primary fund, faced a serious stumb-
ling block today in Gov. Frank D.
Fitzgerald's frank refusal to consider
so large a grant.t
The governor told members of the
Republican state central committee
meeting here Friday that he believes
an appropriation of approximately
$18,500,000 such as he advocates willf
suffice. In order to alter him in his
stand, the "school people will have
to prove beyond doubt that amount
is absolutely necessary," he said.
"There is no member of the legis-
lature, nor any educator, more anx-
ious to give our children an adequate
education than I," the chief executive
declared. "The best demonstration
of that is the fact that I have recom-
mended to the Legislature that the
schools be given nearly $14,000,000
more of state aid than they got last
year. I believe that will be enough."
Last year the $20,700,000 appor-
tioned to the schools included $17,-
398,823 from the primary school fund,
made up of taxes collected from utili-
ties, insurance companies and so on.
The estimated primary fund this
year is $15,500,000.
The difference between the admin-
istration program and that urged by
the school organizations is approxi-
mately $6,500,000 a year. The gov-
ernor is willing to give them enough
from the general fund to supplementr
the primary fund and create a total
of $34,000,000.
