Tuesday Maximum 15 Minimum 6 Sunrise Sunset SAME DATE WASHINGTON Kennedy sent to Congress Tuesday a 24point program of federal aid to education and asked for billion to get it started As before his proposals made no provision for direct aid to pri vate or parochial schools Included in the omnibus meas ure are 13 new programs and 11 existing programs to be extended and expanded They include a complex system of grants for public elementary and secondary education work projects for college students ex panded student loans and loans pri vate colleges alike to meet the surge of new enrollments The President placed no price tag on his total package which he said would phase out federal aid over a fouryear period But he told Congress It is clearly realistic in terms of its it is clearly essential to the growth and security of this An administration spokesman a high priority program designed to pinpoint the most crucial needs and problems in American education and at the same time to avoid controversy wherever rpossible For the past two years Ken nedys education proposals have foundered in a controversy over aid for church schools Kennedy says he believed such aid would be unconstitutional breeching the barrier between church and state The Roman Catholic hierarchy has contended this is not true and has opposed any federal program which doesnt include aid for pri vate and parochial schools A notable omission in the sweeping program of recommen dations was any request for col lege scholarships Kennedy did however ask for a national study to determine why students do not attend or finish college The administration spokesman said that if the study indicates a need for scholarships a request for them could be made next year or later Although his new program contains no provision for direct aid there is one suggested change in the college student loan pro gram which might make it easier for church and private schools to secure teachers immediately he said in a state ment This action is taken because I have become independently con vinced that the point system as it now existshas outworn its use as a safety measure It has be come instead a source of con fusion to the public and an ad ministrative burden to this de partment This has happened I believe Because the point system never ftas been spelled out in Iowa law It began in 1958 as an admihis act by one of my prede cessors Russell It has continued as an administrative function ever since kind of seatofthepants operation As a result Pesch said the point system has undergone three major changes since it began New wave of frigid air Just when it looked as if the extreme cold weather was loosen ing its grip on Iowa a new cold front was pushing toward the state Tuesday Occasional light snow is expect ed to accompany the colder air Temperatures kept above zero over most of the state Monday night Lows ranged from 6 below at Mason City to 8 above at La moni Southerly winds pushed the mercury

woman climbed the Berlin wall Monday night and reached safety in West Berlin police re ported Two more refugees crossed the border between East Germany and the West Berlin suburb of Zehlendorf On the inside The point system was never what it appeared to be to many people Pesch said point ystem dramatized this depart ments authority to suspend driv ers licenses but added nothing to hat authority Discontinuing the point system will take nothing away from that authority We will continue as in the past and as clearly authorized by Iowa law to suspend licenses of drivers who accumulate records of violations1 or chargeable acci dents We will continue to send warning notices to these drivers when they are approaching sus pension action The only differ ence is that we will not assign points Drivers now under suspension will continue under suspension to thecompletion of the suspension periodPesch said He said the licenses were suspended because the drivers had poor records not because they had points Actually Pesch said I believe a point system clearly defined by Iowa law with point violations and point values spelled out would be a permanently effective safety tool Gov Harold Hughes said he had not been consulted by Pesch about the advisability of eliminating the point system If hes done it hes done it He is the safety commissioner and will be safety commissioner for some
