the state cannot deny ai to schools which do not mee minimum standards prescribe by the of Public In structioh The court declared a sectio of the states school aid la unconstitutional because makes an improper delegatio ofauthority to the state super intendent of public instruction The law had been challenge in the courts by residents of th Lewis Consolidated School Di trict in Cass County near A

instruction to regulate ed ucational programs and allocate has point with the rural faction o the legislature The board to consolidate schoo districts into units large enough to finance a high school ha been the chief objection The department came unde fire most recently duringthe 1963 session of the General As sembly when a bill was intro duced to return the selection o a superintendent to the partisan ballot to beelected by thepeo pie instead of appointed by thi board The reappbintment of Pau Johnston as superintendent one of the first nominations sub mitted fp the Senate was de layed until the closing days o the session before con firmed Another measure was intro duced to have the 9member board appointed by the governor instead pf by district conven tions of school officials The ruling said that if the superintendent of public in struction was to be given power to deny school aid to the Lewis District or any think more definite guides to the making of such standards and rules should be provided by the legislature The high court noted that the school laws spell out that the state has a policy of ericourag ing reorganization of school dis triCtS This is adesirablegoal but it must be reached by laws and procedures which do not trans gress the constitution the opinion said The end does not justify the means in faqt it never does if constitutional precepts must be disregarded to jreach it Nor will we torture the constitution out ol any fair construction or mean ng to promote or permit what may be thoughtto be a bene icial result the opinion stated The eight justices agreed that vhcie standards or guidelines are readily possible the legis ature may not abandon them altogether and tell the admin strative body you may do any hing you think will further the purpose of the law In so doing you may set up whatever stand ards you deem necessary and Km may punish for violation of hose standards The Lewis Consolidated School District originated the suit in oik

BLUFFS UR The space agency launched a search in western Iowa Tuesday for stone fragments from the moon The National Aeronautics and Space Administration asked res idents of six counties par ticularly

that farm civic business and government lead ers of the area take part m project moon harvest spon sored by NASA and the Depart ment of Agriculture He asked that any unusua stones be brought to the atten tion of the local county agent or soil conservation office Moon fragments OKeefe id are likely to be porous and thus lighter in weight than ordinary rock 5One r a gmen i turned is color with a grayish c o a t in some places Others have a greyish crust or a reddish interior In general the lunar fragments might resemble slag or a sohdi fied sponge rubber OKeefe said thatalthough no such pieces of the moon have een positively identified scien tists are reasonably sure of their existence on earth because of laboratory studies The con clusion is fragments are knocked fromthe moon by meteors and that many must be reaching the after trips of millions of years OKeefe urged the searchers in Monona Harrison Shelby Crawford Woodbiiry and Potta wattamie counties to send in all suspicious rocks The pieces might vary in size from objects weighing only a ew ounces to large chunks weighing several pounds OKeefe said the search area rom Council Bluffs to Sioux ity is remarkably free of native stones Underlying rocks re covered by a thick blanket f finegrained earth In this area any stone which turns up in plowing is a unosity and the likelihood of ur finding meteorites

historic de cision in the New York Times libel case was viewed Tuesday as massive support for the right of the nations press to criticize public officials The court in a decision which set sweeping new guidelines in the field of freedom of the press and of speech Monday threw vout a libel judgment against the Times The judgment had been won in stale courts by a Montgomery Ala police official The de cision also struck down the judgment as it applied to four Negro clergymen who were co defendants in the Alabama case The courts majority opinion in strong language laid down the rule that critical statements about the official conduct of government officers are pro tected by the constitutional guarantees of free speech and free press A government official can collect damages only if he can
