In it Nixon restated Hia opposition to compulsory student busing to achieve racial balance and urged that school boards facing desegregation decisions be Given wide latitude provided they act in Good Faith to carry out the Law. The president said some persons have interpreted administration actions As signalling an Effort to turn Back the clock on desegregation. A we Are not backing away a he declared. A the constitutional mandate will be Nixon Laid claim to dramatic South opposes desegregation Progress during his first year in office saying a in the past year alone the number of Black children attending Southern schools held to be in compliance has doubled from less than 600,000 to nearly i 200,000 representing 40 per cent of the negro student a year earlier the proportion was 23 per cent.

The amendment sponsored by sen. John Stennis a miss was watered Down in a conference committee after adoption by the Senate prompting the Dixie bloc to come out against it Stennis declined to discuss his strategy in Advance although one report had it he would seek to return the measure to the committee with instructions to put the Teeth Back into it. The measure one of the largest education Bills Ever considered by Congress goes far beyond president Nixon a spending recommendations leading some senators to believe that it will Force another fight Between Congress and the White House Over education spending. Nixon earlier vetoed an appropriations Bill for the departments of health education and welfare and labor because he Felt it allocated too much for education programs the Stennis amendment adopted 56 to 36 in floor action last month requires the Federal government to move As vigorously against schools segregated because of residential patterns in the North As it has against the legally segregated schools of the South. The conferees adopted the principal language of the amendment but also approved two new provisions that in Southern eyes weaken it. The first says uniformity Means one policy on de Jure Legal segregation shall be applied nationally and a is Alrh other polic a As May be provided by Law on de Facto neighbourhood segregation. There is no present Law on neighbourhood segregation. The other provision assures that the government shall carry out its obligation to enforce the part of the 1964 civil rights act requiring a cutoff of Federal funds where segregation is practice. The Bill extends Federal Aid to education programs three years. Among these Are the elementary and secondary education act by far the largest of the Aid programs and impacted areas which provides funds for districts crowded because of nearby a a Federal installations. Nixon asked for a two year Bill and for no increases in authorizations pending a study of the effectiveness of the key programs. But the Bill would boost sharply the Esea funds which Are channelled into districts with Large numbers of children from poverty stricken Homes. It would do this by raising the definition of such families to those with $4,000 or less annual income under the Law now Only those with $2,000 or less Are covered. It also would make substantial increases in the impacted areas funds by including children from Public housing projects and from migratory labor housing projects and refugee children. David w.

If Justice Hugo l. Black turns out to be right the journey could work against the very people the court the trying to protect the poor. But the court has stepped out with Confidence and with the benevolent View that Public assistance serves the1 positive goal of bringing the blessings of Liberty to More of the american people. Monday s 59 decision will never serve As a classic example of a strict constructionist Quot rather it is More an example of what chief Justice Warrene Burger bitterly termed a the now familiar constitutional zing impelled undoubtedly by compassion and a sense of fair play two Hallmarks of the court under former chief Justice Earl Warren five justices of diverse philosophies United to Cushion poor people with the right to a a due process of Law Quot As stated in the 14th amendment a right originally designed to protect negroes after the civil War. The court took the Ball away from the department of health education Ami welfare whose regulations designed to give people on welfare an even More protective hearing would have a one into effect this summer. Most of the few Legal precedents cited in the opinion of Justice William j. Brennanjr. Seemed Remote. More to the Point appeared to be a sense of social Justice highlighted by rejection of the idea that welfare the a Mere indeed Brennan wrote Public assistance is a Means to in the words of the preamble to the constitutions a promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our therefore in a display of judicial gymnastics scored by Black in dissent the majority does a balancing act atop the due process clause. The Cost to the states of continuing Aid while hearings Are held and the Cost of administer ing the hearings Are balanced against the possibility of cutting off people who really Are entitled to Aid. The balance was found by Brennan and justices William o. Douglas John m. Harlan Byron r. White and Thurgood Marshall to tip in favor of the poor.
