VOL. LVIII, No. 130
Senate Votes
300 Millions
School Aid
Proposes Grants
To Poorer States
WASHINGTON, April 1-(P)-
The Senate passed and sent tc
the House tonight legislation tc
authorize $300,000,000 of Federa
aid to the nation's grade and higi
schools each year.
The bill is aimed at more nearly
equalizing the amounts spent fo:
education throughout the country
It would authorize grants in th4
poorer states up to about $28 P
year for each child of school age
No state would receive less thar
$5 a year for each child from 5 t
Michigan Senators
Passage was on a 58 to 22 vote
(Senators Vanderberg and Fergu-
son voted in favor of the bill.)
It came after one of the Sen-
ate's leading advocates of federal
economy, Senator Byrd (Dem.,
Va.), had, protested in vain.
"Never in our history," Byrd
shouted, "has there been a more
unpropitious time for the federal
government to enter into a long
range proposition such as is pro-
posed in the pending legislation."
The bill does not actually carry
any funds. They must be voted in
subsequent appropriations bills.
Byrd recalled that in 1943 Sena-
tor Taft (Rep., Ohio), a backer of
today's bill, opposed a similar sys-
tem of grants.
'States in Better Position'
Taft said then that states were
in a much better position to fi-
nance education than the federal
treasury. He also protested about
federal controls over local and
state schools through the grants.
"I was wrong in that state-
ment," Taft said, adding that
when he examined detailed figures
on state spending for schooling
they "changed my mind."
Taft insisted that the pending
bill carefully guards against fed-
eral control over education in the
states and communities.
Before the final vote, the Sen-
ate rejected an amendment by
Senator McMahon (Dem., Conn.)
to authorize $5,000,000 a year to
help church and private schools
meet the costs of pupil transpor-
tation, health services and non-
religious textbooks. The vote was
66 to 14.

Regents Define Authority
Of 'U' Radio Committee
The Board of Regents clearly defined yesterday the authority
of the newly set-up University Executive Committee on Radio to
exercise control over all University broadcasting.
President Alexander G. Ruthven announced the Regents' de-
cision to give the committee control over all programs originating
in University buildings or on University grounds. The broadcasting
policy group will also control all programs identified as being under
University auspices which are presented over any station by staff or
students of the University.
This means that programs presented by any University depart-
ments or organizations over either local stations or the University FM
station, if they are identified as2-

University programs, will have to
be cleared through the commit-
No "Outside" Control
The committee, however, would
not control programs in which
students or faculty take part on
their own, without intending to
represent the University.
The group does not seek to be
a "board of censorship," accord-
ing to Arthur L. Brandon, chair-
man of the radio committee.
"Clearing" of programs means
only that information in them
will be checked for conformance to
University policy which calls for
programs in the public, interest,
he said.
intra-Dorm Stations
Intra-dorm stations and wired-
radio will also fall under the com-
mittee's jurisdiction. Their olier-
%tors are already working in co-
operation with the committee and
the University Broadcasting Serv-

Prof. Waldo Abbot, director of
the Broadcasting Service, called
the Regents' decision a "step for-
ward." He said a centralized
broadcasting authority and a def-
inite policy are a real necessity
inasmuch as a University station
will soon be in operation.
President Ruthven, in his an-
nouncement, also disclosed objec-
tives which the radio committee
has set for the Broadcasting Serv-
ice. The committee's proposals in-
clude educational programs in the
public interest, "entertainment
consistent with the policies and
practices of an institution of
higher learning," and facilities
and programs for wired-radio
service to residence halls and
other University buildings.
The radio executive committee,
set up in February under the jur-
isdiction of Vice-President Mar-
vin L. Niehuss, includes Brandon,
Abbot, Prof. Charles L. Jamison,
Prof. Karl Litzenberg and Dean
Earl V. Moore of the music school.

The vote for the special meet-

Soviet Ukraine abstained.
The Assembly will convene April
16 in New York City.
Calls Also for Truce

unanimous decisions, called also
for a Jewish-Arab truce in Pales-
Warren R. Austin, chief United
States delegate who sponsored
both moves in the council on or-
ders from the White House, de-
clared the truce was needed to
stop the "blood feud" raging
The UN Secretariat immediate-
ly swung into high-speed action
to prepare the ground work for
the second special assembly in
UN history.
Truman Decision
The United States proposed the
special session to consider a tem-
porary trusteeship after President
Truman and his Cabinet decided
partition could not be carried out
peacefully at this time.
The American change of pace
on Palestine created a sensation
here when it was announced un-
expectedly on March 19.
Mr. Truman later told his news
conference last Thursday that
trusteeship was proposed as iA
means of filling the vacuum
which will be created by Britain's
announced decision to terminate
her Palestine mandate on May 15.
