Aid to Non Public Schools Favored at Nashua By MAXWEIt COOK The final session of a series of hearings on a legidative study oi non-public: schools" brought out about 200 persons last night at the James-B.'Crowiey School on Lake Street jThose who .over- whelmingly in favor of assistance, to parochial schools, all of rwhkh on the local.scene, appear to be operating at large deficits- No speaker was openly'opposed to state aid to State Rep. Ernest Coutermarsh of Nashua, 'who presided public meeting; is chairman of the School Study Com- mission appointed by the 196S ses- sion rf the New Harapsire Legis- lature. He was assisted at last night's hearing by. two others of the 15- niember the" Rt 'Rev.' llsgr. George: Murray and Mrs. Bernard V.'NwH, both-of Man- chester. Advises Groop Rep. Coutermarsh the as- "sembled group that, the commis- sion is charged to The desirabtiity. of maintaining a dual system of' education, whether or riot the state may give assistance '.to. non-public schools; how many schools may be forced to close for lack of fi- nancial support; the impact thai closing of: such schools will have on the public school system and ways in which the state may help communities prepare for closing of such schools; and the transfer of non-public real property to the school district. He said hearings have been held in Laconia, Claremont, Berlin and Dover- All of these were attended by citizens favoring some form of aid to parochial schools. The attendance at the hearing was predominantly Catholic, in- cluding many nuns, and most who spoke .voiced enthusiasm for the. parochial system and de- scribed-the institutions' budget- problems.

It is too early to assess tha true significance of the unprece- dented moratorium that brought hundreds of thousands of Ameri- cans out .against the Saps, as Sam Brown'said, "giv- ing hope'io the people that they can work for change within the democratic system without. violence." What is dear is (hat Nixon has not, this morning after, giv- en of doing what the moratorium slogan demand- ed: "Bring home the troops.' All the troops. Now.'.' It is equally clear that many who had condemned the morato- rium from the beginning mis- judged their people when they prophesied that such a massive, widespread outpouring of feel- ing could aily result in violence.
