K. HODEFIELD AP Education Writer WASHINGTON - President Johnson proposed yesterday the biggest-ever program of federal aid to education, a $1.6 billion package for both public and private schools, with the accent on children of the poor. Battle lines in the legislative fight ahead already have been drawn. Generally speaking, it was learned, the Catholic clergy approves. Groups opposed to federal aid to parochial schools are against it. Johnson said the first-year price tag of more than $1.5 billion "is a small price to pay for developing our nation's most priceless resource." THE PRESIDENT called for "a national goal of full educational opportunity. Every child," he said, "must be encouraged to get as much education as he has the ability to take." The President's proposals range all the way from preschool programs for slum children to college scholarships for needy and worthy high school j graduates. They include: -$1 billion for assistance to public elementary and secondary schools serving families with less than $2,000 annual income, with public and private schools encouraged to cooperate in such programs as shared time. -$260 million for higher education, including 140,000 scholarships, partial payment of the interest on guaranteed private loans to college students, aid to small colleges, and support for college library resources. -$150 million for preschool projects to prepare culturally deprived children for classroom work. This is not part of the President's education program, but will come in his budget for the Economic Op-portunity Act. -$100 million in grants to the states for the purchase of library books and textbooks, with about 15 per cent of the total going to private schools. Pov erty is no criterion here. All [books purchased must be those used in the public shcools. Re- ligiously oriented books, for instance, may not be bought. -$100 million for supplementary education centers and services, with public and private school students alike sharing special courses in science, math and foreign languages, remedial reading programs, summer schools for deprived [children, and programs for the physically and mentally handicapped. -$45 million for regional educational laboratories to undertake research, train teachers and implement research find-lings. -$10 million to strengthen state educational agencies by [helping them formulate long-range plans, identify emerging educational problems and expand educational research and [development. An administration source emphasized that no federal funds [may be given school districts which are not complying with the Civil Rights Law of 1964 IF A school district applies (Continued on Page 3, Col. 3) Leaders Of GOP Applaud By DON BOLLES STAGING a diplomatic retreat, former Sen.

The warning was contained In a government statement distributed by the New China News Agency. A dispatch from Peking, monitored in Tokyo, quoted the statement as saying: "If U.S. imperialism continues to prosecute its scheme for expanding its aggressive war in South Vietnam, and even internationalizes that war, the Chinese government and people will have to give further consideration to the duties incumbent upon them for the defense of peace in this area." THE STATEMENT said Communist China "strongly condemned U.S. imperialism" for (Continued on Page 4, Col. 1) Strikes Spreading In Vietnam Cities By MICHAEL T. MALLOY SAIGON (UPI)-Strikes and demonstrations yesterday spread through the three northernmost cities of South Vietnam in support of a Buddhist-inspired effort to topple the government of Premier Tran Van Huong. A general strike paralyzed the ancient imperial capital of Hue, 400 miles north of Saigon, for the second consecutive day. An estimated 4,500 persons attended j two antigovernment rallies there to denounce Huong and demand his resignation. A general strike closed all business at Quang Tri, less than 20 miles from the frontier with Communist North Vietnam. A similar .strike shut down the port city of Danang, 20 miles south of Hue, and 800 persons demonstrated in front of a movie where Buddhists fought Roman Catholics last year. THE DANANG demonstrators burned Huong in effigy and said they would send a delegation to Saigon to demand that Chief of State Phan Khac Suu dismiss Huong.

The defense ministry reported nine small engagements Sunday and Monday in which the government killed 23 Vietcong and captured 50 at a loss of 12 men killed. no violence was reported in yesterday's demonstrations. The crowds were smaller than in the past and made up mostly of schoolboys. Monsoon rains dampened enthusiasm, and merchants were reported eager to reopen today. There were no anti-American tones to the demonstrations as in the past. American officers in Danang, where almost 2,000 U.S. servicemen are stationed, said the strike had not affected the big air base there or the U.S. military establishment. In Saigon, the situation was quiet and there were no public protests of any kind although Buddhists had hinted at demonstrations. However, commercial flights to Danang and Hue were canceled because pilots did not want to fly into possible trouble spots. one factor contributing to the peaceful attitude in Saigon was a series of government communiques announcing settlement of the government crisis and a restoration of good relations with U.S. Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor. Huong told a news conference yesterday the United States had applied no pressure to influence the government in settling its political crisis. His statements emphasized solidarity with the United States. "In the common struggle against communism, the armed forces of the Republic of Vietnam will always maintain close relations with friendly nations of the free world, in which the (Continued on Page 5, Col. 1) his full four-year term. The reversal came as an apparent effort to avoid a party-splitting battle. Burch, 37, said he will submit his resignation from the $30,000-a-year job, to take effect April 1, at a meeting of the National Committee in Chicago, Jan. 22-23. Bliss, a [veteran Ohio chairman, said he has consented to become chairman if the national committee wants him. This baton passing, to close party ranks after the November election defeat, brought immediate favorable reaction from many party leaders. Bliss is a conservative-oriented Taft Republican but has commanded respect from right and left as a capable and willing technician. The men concerned met at Goldwater's hilltop home Monday night and yesterday morning, then went before TV cameras and newsmen to announce the change at the top.

BOTH Goldwater and Burch said their private polls showed the present chairman would have the support of a majority of the 132 committeemen in Chicago this month, but they said a simple majority wouldn't be enough to unite the party for 1966 election victories. Bliss summed it up: "We all agree that a vote testing the [question of Mr. Burch's chairmanship would weaken the par ty for years to come." The liberal element of the party has been demanding Burch's scalp ever since the November election disaster.

Dead Is Mrs. Victoria Pichay, Troops Fire Tear Gas to Halt March PANAMA CITY, Pana ma (UPI) - National Guard troops fired tear gas grenades yesterday to break up an attempt by 1,000 students to march on the American embassy. Student leaders at three high schools said two students were injured when the National Guard broke up the mob yesterday morning. Last night leaders called for a 24-hour school strike. THEY SAID one girl fractured her nose and cut her forehead and a youth broke his ankle as both fled pursuing guardsmen firing tear gas. Both injured students attend classes at the Bolivar Institute, one of the high schools where leaders issued a resolution calling for the strike to begin today. The fired-up students reportedly were holding meetings to [persuade other high school and university students to join the strike. In yesterday's demonstration, the students sought to foil police interference by approaching the American embassy from a number of directions. However, swift police action spoiled the attempt. THE STUDENTS broke and ran under the attack, throwing stones at troops as they scattered. The early-morning march followed the burning of an American flag Monday night by 2,000 students at a rally on the Panama University campus. 12 DAYS IN 1965 20 TRAFFIC DEATHS By BEN AVERY , BILLS RANGING from 'package proposing revamping of Arizona's tax structure to repeal of the controversial motor vehicle inspection law were introduced in the State Senate yesterday.

The agreement stemmed from a 90-minute meeting between President Johnson and Japanese Prime Minister Eisaku Sato at the White House, 50 min utes of it spent by the leaders with only an interpreter present. The informants said that while there are remaining differences between Japan and the United States on China policy, there is no real conflict between the two governments. Johnson, welcoming Sato at the White House, assured him [Japan is the keystone of a broad partnership with the United States in the Pacific, aimed at a lasting peace with I freedom for all Asian nations. The 63-year-old Japanese leader in turn told the President at White House meeting that since Communist China's nuclear explosion last October, the Japanese people have "re-I discovered and reaffirmed" their defense ties with the United States.

Girl to Take Rabies Serum Unless Stray Poodle Found EITHER life or death may be in the hypodermic needle that doctors will use today on 7-year-old Kimberly Siegrist. At 4 p.m. the girl will begin taking dangerous anti-rabies shots unless the stray dog which bit her Dec. 29 is found. It was an unclipped, shaggy, grey-black poodle with a red-brown collar, roaming the 4600 block of W. Maryland. The shots could save Kimberly from dying of rabies, if she contracted the disease. But at the same time, the serum could induce a dangerous allergenic reaction in the youngster, a heriditary weakness of Kim and her five brothers. "It has been a terrible decision for us to make," said Kim's mother, Mrs. Thomas Siegrist of Glendale, last night, "but the knowledge and experience of our doctor have told us the dangers from a possible reaction are considerably less than the almost certain death Kim would face if she has rabies." The serum will be administered in the Maryvale surgery of the family's pediatrician. He made his decision yesterday after consultations with the veterinary division of the county health department. U.S. Pilots Released ALGIERS, Algeria (UPI) Two U.S. Navy pilots forced down in Algeria by bad weather jlast week were released by Al gerian officials yesterday, diplomatic sources said. The two had been held for a full week as "guests" of the Algerian military. They had been treated well but kept in custody, these sources said. Lt. Cradr. Gerald K. Loeb of Jacksonville, Fla., and Lt. (j.g.) Ronald H. Marron of Peabody, Mass., landed their A1H single-seat fighter planes last Wednesday on a rough Algerian airstrip after bad [weather prevented them from finding the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga. A Prayer O GOD, who in Christ came forsaking Thy heavenly glory to be the suffering servant, washing Thy followers' dirty feet, touching with love the loathsome sores of lepers, breaking bread to feed the hungry, dying at last on a cross, we adore Thee and pray for grace to serve and follow Thee today and every day. Amen. along with announcement of the 'membership of the working com-'mittees of the upper house. THE TAX OVERHAUL package, authored by Sen. Robert iMorrow, D-Mohave, is virtually identical to a series of bills Mor-[row introduced last year. It would earmark all property taxes and the tax on motor vehicles for the counties, school districts and cities and towns. Reserved for the state would be the sales tax and other excise taxes. The motor vehicle inspection repealer was introduced by Sen. William A. Sullivan, D-Gila, one of the leaders in the House-Senate war on vehicle inspection' last year. A similar bill passed by the legislature last year was vetoed by Gov. Paul Fannin, and House Republicans blocked efforts to override the veto. However, Sullivan predicted yesterday that Gov. Goddard would sign the repealer if it is passed this year. SEN. BEN Arnold, D-Pinal, and Sen. Fred Udine, D-Coco-nino, introduced a bill to provide $150,000 for construction of la governor's mansion. Udine also sponsored other measures to appropriate $1,810,000 for new buildings and other facilities at Arizona State College, which will become Northern Arizona University in May, plus a measure authorizing issuance of an additional $1,850,000 in revenue bonds by ASC for new dormitories. Morrow also authored a measure to remap Arizona's congressional districts, putting most of I Phoenix and Scottsdale in District 1, giving northern Maricopa County along with the western part and some of South Phoenix to District 3, and including southern Maricopa County in the present District 2. OTHER MEASURES included a proposal by Sen. David Palmer, D-Yavapai, to change the method of apportioning state school funds; a bill by Sen. A. R. Spikes, D-Cochise, to implement the constitutional amendment approved by the voters in November to change the makeup of the State Board of Education; and bills by Sen. Arnold to give counties and cities rate-making power over water and sewer companies, and making nonsupport of children a felony instead of a misdemeanor.
