Senator Ribicoff Asks Aid To Private School Education coff made these proposals as a basis for action: 1. Income tax deductions of up to $1,500 per college stu- dent and $100 per student for private school expenses. 2. Public financing of shared- time arrangements whereby private school pupils could use some public school facilities. For each private school pupil using public school space and equipment, states would get half the allotment proposed for full-time public school students. 3. Assistance for special pur- poses. "In elementary and secondary schools, there is a wide range of permissible aid in selective areas such as math, science and foreign language teaching... We should explore • . . classroom construction." 4. Broadening present pro- grams of teacher training for all teachers, including those in private schools. "Why not pro- vide scholarships which would enable promising teachers to return to universities for a year of advanced study?" 5. Furnishing auxiliary serv- ices of direct benefit to the child, such as school lunches and bus transportation. 6. Aiding all types of higher education. "I am entirely satis- fied that public funds may be WASHINGTON, May May 23 (NC) m Sen. Abraham Riblcoff has presented the Senate with a six-point program to aid education in church-related schools and extinguish what he called smoldering religious con- troversy. The Connecticut legislator said his two-year stint as presi- dent Kennedy's first Secretary of Health, Education and Wel- fare taught him the "depths of the feelings and strength of the convictions involved." "But I firmly believe," he said May 20 in the Senate, 'that the effort must be made to resolve this controversy. "As long as it continues, op- posing points of view become more resolute, reason gives away to emotion and the pos- sibility of progress all but vanishes." Ribicoff's statement comes almost one full year after he stirred nationwide comment with a similar declaration. In June, 1962, speaking as HEW Secretary, he told a tele- vision news panel show that he thought it possible to aid edu- cation given in parochial and other private schools. In his Senate speech, Ribi- Archbishop Blesses St. Anne Church used broadly without constitu- tional question." The Senator introduced two bills embodying his reeom. mendations for income tax deductions for college and for private elementary and see. ondary school expenses. Ribicoff said the controversy over financing the education of students in private schools "has blocked the passage of every proposal for Federal aid to education that the administra- tion has recommended to Congress." Ribicoff said that private school students number more than 15 per cent of all students in the elementary grades, 11 per cent in the secondary grades and 3 per cent in higher education. "It is a fact," he said, 'ithat these children, in these num- bers, attend private and church- reared schools. It is a fact that their parents have exercised the right to send their children to these schools, in preference to available public education. "It is a fact that the edu- cation of each of these ehil- ten means just as much to the strength and future of this nation as the education of every child in a public school."

Ecumenical Spirit Seen In Vancouver Meeting opening session and the Most Reverend Remi De Roe, Bishop of Victoria, participated in all the discussions. Papers were read on the development of doctrine with particular reference to Papal infallibility and the definitions of the dogmas of the Immacu- late Conception and the As- sumption. The Anglicans, according to Father Treaey, e x p r e s s e d "great difficulty in accepting these doetrines and in fact the main stumbling block to them is the aeceptance of in- fallibility within the Church."

He also served as Turning to constitutional is- sues, Ribicoff said too much had been heard from extrem- ists. "There is agreement both that the Constitution does place some outer limits on the use of public funds for private edu- cation and that there is a range of activity within these limits where some forms of public as- sistance are permissible. "The exact point at which the constitutional limitations apply is not clear. "Most proponents of aid to private education have forth- rightly recognized that public funds ought not to be used for religious teaching; their pro- posals have been designed to exclude an expediture for this purpose. In comments on the Senate floor later in the day, Sen. Thomas Dodd of Connecticut and Sen. Claiborne Pell of Rhode Island praised the Ribicoff speech and joined his call for resolution of the aid problem. Dodd said that for the good of the country and for the good of our children we must put aside prejudice on both sides of the religious controversy and take a practical look at the problem." State Birth Control Bill Killed SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 22 (NC)--The State Senate Public Health and S a f e t y Committee has killed a proposal calling for a state-supported birth con- trol program. The committee voted May 10 against a resolution sponsored by Sen. Alvin C. Weingand of Santa Barbara which called on the State Department of Public Health, in cooperation with local health agencies, to "initi- ate, supplement and furnish" birth control services. Weingand criticized t h e eommittee's action, saying the resolution "was killed out of fear rather than conviction." He said California's aid to needy children program inclu- des 82,000 illegitimate children and costs $200 million annually. His proposal would reduce the state's "mounting poverty," he said. The 'resolution had been op- posed by Catholic spokesmen, including Bishop Alden J. Bell of Sacramento. Bishop Bell had commented in a statement in April: "The elimination of poverty, disease and unemployment are all desirable goals. We do not believe, however, that the prop- er solution to the problems of poverty, disease and unemploy. ed . ° o "A state program of birth limitation would encourage promiseuity, increase illegiti- macy and venereal infection, and in the end compound the very problems which the sponsors of sueh legislation seek to alleviate." The proposal also was oppos. ed by Gov. Edmund G. (Pat) Brown of California. ASTRONAUT GORDON COOPER'S face shows no sign of strain from his 22 trips around the world. These photos were made as he talked to reporters at Cocoa Beach, Fla., before going to Washington. 'Gordo' Cooper Reads Prayer He Recited While Up There WASHINGTON, May 22 (NC)--The nation's most space-orbiting astronaut climaxed a thunderous wel- come in the nation's capital by reciting before a joint session of Congress a prayer he had offered during his 17th orbit. The hero's mother, seated in a capital gallery above him, bowed her head, wiped tears from her eyes, then smiled as her son, Air Force Maj. Gordon Cooper, repeated the prayer. "I must take this time to say a little prayer for all the people, including myself, who are involved in this operation," Cooper, a Methodist, prayed. "I want to thank You espe- cially for letting me fly this flight. Thank You for the privil- ege of being able to be in this position; to be in this wondrous place, seeing all these startling, wonderful things that You have created. "Help guide and direct all of us that we may shape our lives to be much better Chris- tians," he continued, to pray, "so that we help one another and work with one another, rather than fighting and bick- ering. Help us to complete this mission successfully. Help us in future space endeavors to show the world that democracy really can compete and still is able to do things in a big way and so we are able to do re- search, development and con- duct new scientific programs. "Be with all our families. Give us guidance and encour- agement and let them know that everything will be okay. We ask in Thy name. Amen." Cooper disclosed that he had tape recorded the prayer during the 17th orbit. "Gordo" Cooper and his wife Astronaut In Prayers Of Pontiff Astronaut L. Gordon Cooper, who set a U.S. space flight record m his Faith 7 capsule, was in the prayers of His Holi- ness Pope John XXIII as well as thousands of U.S. Catholics during his historic 22 orbits of the earth. While the Air Force major was still in orbit (May 16), Pope John said in Rome: "We follow them (space flights) with prayers of hies- sing. We wish them real sue. eess that they may be a con- tribution to brotherhood and civilization." The Vatican City daily, L'Os- servatore Romano, had a front- page story on the space flight, plus a front-page editorial by editor Raimondo Manzini. The editorial took note of the Pope's statement that he was praying for the success of the flight and also said: In record- ing this new achievement and success of the American nation with the merit it deserves, one notes again that science is in the service of mankind.
