ofa provi sion for partial financing by property taxes The House adopted an amend ment Thursday to strip a Sen atepassed bill of authorization for a property tax levy and to riivorce the system from the control of the State Board of Public Instruction The amendment instead would set up a separate board of Governors for Community and Junior Colleges and Vocational Technical Schools to operate the
