Transcript the monev knowing theii oilier states competitively will clamor for il and gel il. Thus, the awarding of money hy the federal government becomes a bureaucratic decision of the most flagrant kind. We Americans value our ideal of local responsibility in educating our young. We know our system works the way it is. So our criticism lo federal money for education may well he expressed in our recognizing emd declaring theii federal aid means federal control, "which we do not want in education, thanks jusl lhe same." As citizens and taxpayers we- expecl our federal government lo he careful in lhe expenditure of our money emd this necessarily means federal control follow- federal spending. All lhe evils peculiar lo government are multiplied the further lhe governmenl gets from lln- people' llie 1930's and 19-40's prove ihis. federal governmenl is the oilier pole from the Im ed sclioeel district. It i- impractical eunl unrealistic, therefore, to seiv federal eiid would In' without strings attached. Countless other federal leiws have supplanted Btate and local control education would follow. Then llie bureaucracy would indoctrinate our children. If we musl accelerate our already feist school construction program—if more money is needed then onl) do I suggest this following plan. Let us retain 1 per cent ol eill income taxes collected on individual and corporate income under federal statutes, which shall be deemed in lie revenue lor ihe state in which it is collected for use for educational purposes only withoul emv federal direction, control or interference. Texas, my Btate for example, will receive approximately twent) millieen dollars. Each Steele obviously, would receive ils lair share in this way. 1 rider ihis plan ihe handling of funds through Washington and hack will he eliminated no heavy bureaucratic deductions. The money remains in the sieiies. No new federal bureaucracy will replace existing state and local organizations and methods. The total amount will aulomaticedh be geared lo national income. There will be no danger of Federal control, and no opportunity for channelized propaganda. There would be no appointed federal bureaucrat in charge of the educational program, feir from the elective wishes of the people. Mosl important, ihis proposal will be a step loweirel retaining our constitutional republic emd ;i move away from centralized government. Old school buildings such as the one shown at top are being replaced by modern consolidated schools all over the state of Pennsylvania, whose school building program is considered a model for other states. Local school building authorities finance about 50 per cent of the cost; state aid cavers the balance. I Iiii President's chief concern will have heen met "without interference with the responsibility of state and local school systems," The November educational conference lies ahead—let's weiit emd weigh the findings and solve ihis problem lhe American Wei\ eil the local level: Let's nol dodge it by asking for federal eiid. We can do il at the state and local level. Tell your congressman about your beliefs and ihis plan. 1 ^L y •> ~*— 7 < UL ^mT f You, loo. eat leave litem t l.l'IIV ■ a trail of FACTS FORUM NKW S beh nd you— -in your doctor's and dentist $ nailing rooms. al the hi auty parlor. the barber shop. the shot shim stand—i herever others may have a few moments of reading: limi Your acts eun leave tract; . where folk* mi d facts! f"'\< TS KOKl'M SV,\\>..\o,rmi,ci. !"->'• Page JS
