Dr. Jerome S. Bruner, a Harvard University profes- sor, said a work group of psychologists had weighed the ability of conventional tests to probe the learning abilities of minority group children. Bruner is president of the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues from which the work group was drawn. Most conventional tests are designed to measure the learning abilities of children from middle-class environ- ments with certain advan- tages that stem from those environments, the group report said. When these same tests are turned to forecasting the learning abilities of children from less advantageous cir- cumstances, the results are often not valid. The report came to the conclusion that, "The mis- use of tests with minority group children, or in any situation, is a serious breach of professional ethics." The society is a division of the American Psychological Association, the major pro- fessional organization for psychologists in the United States. The issue came up when an amendment was added to the 1964 Civil Rights Act thai permitted ability testing for individuals seeking training opportunities. In a statement, the assoc- iation said many of the questions in the report on children's tests pertain with equal force to the testing of minority group adults. "In testing the minorily group child it is sometimes appropriate lo compare his performance with thai of advantaged children lo de- termine the magnitude of the deprivation lo be over- the report said. "At other times it is ap- propriate to compare his test performance with that children to de- termine his relative depriva- tion in comparison with others who have also been denied good homes, good neighborhoods, good diets, good schools and good teach- ers." But it is also appropriate, the report said to measure lhe child's performance on tests at the beginning with his later performance. In this way, it said, "we are able to gauge the suc- cess of our efforts to move the minority group child forward on the long, hard road of overcoming the deficiencies which have been forced upon him."

And asked about the dispute over Interpretation of Goltlwnt- :r's statements about cxtrem- sls, Johnson said, "I am nol going to start passing personal ipinions on the expressions of Jie other party and the other candidate at this point." The President added lhat, "The American people are per- fectly careful and prudent peo- ple and they can very well judge those matters them- selves." 50 Newsmen Greeting some 50 reporters and photographers on the lawn in front of his ranch home, Johnson reported, too, that the federal budget deficit for the fiscal year lhat ended June 30 was a billion cnlt roping, Rlc' u- uungv in BVIIIU. wil total time of 51.6 seconds fo hree calves.
