!ep. Curtis Questioned
ihouf Aid Jo Education
Pointed questions concerning
governmental aid to education
were asked of Representative
Carl Curtis at the University
Public Affairs Clinic Monday.
Congressman Curtis, Nebras
ka's representative to Congress
from the first district, devoted
an hour to explaining the work
and procedures f Congress and
particulaly the revision of the in
ternal revenue law.
dress, a torum, led by Dr. A. C.
Breckenridge, head of the de
partment of political science, and
including Hugo Srb, clerk of the
Nebraska State Legislature, and
Dr. Leo P. Black of the State
Department of Public instruction,
asked questions concerning as
pects of legislation.
Dr. Black led the questioning
by asking Curtis the reason for
a recent reduction of the budget
-f the Office of Education by
$319,000. He pointed out that
$60,000 of the approved budget
had also been earmarked for
vocational education expendi
WHEN A department works
out carefully a budget," he said,
"it seems as if . the House would
not dare to cut it, thus tieing the
hands of the department."
Congressman Curtis said that
the bill did not come from the
House Ways and Means com
mittee, of which he is a mem
ber. He pointed out that the
function of that committee is to
decide on means of raising
money through taxes, not to de
cide the way the money is ap
propriated. "If the House accepted the
budget submitted by governmen
tal departments," he said, "then
the national deficit would be
billions more than it is now "
He said that departments antici
pated a cut.
DR. BLACK then wanted to
know how Nebraska's repre
sentatives voted on the Tideland
oil issue. Curtis replied that he
had voted for state ownership of
the oiL
Dr. Black asked why congress
men considered education only
after everything else had been
taken care of. If there is to be
equality of educational oppor
tunity, he said, there must be a
change of attitude toward federal
Congressman Curtis's answer
was in three parts. He said first
that if Tideland oil belonged to
the federal government, then
funds would be available for
education. He added however.
We" went for a ride and all she
did was shake her head. After
sixty miles she told' me her nose
was caught in the windshield
wiper. f
that the educational aspect of
the issue had been merged for
political reasons. He said that
Congress decided however that
the funds did not belong to the
federal government. :
SECOND, KE said that he be
lieved that aid to education from
the federal government should bej
channeled through the school
system and should be handled by
school men.
However, he said, there would
be better education if it was
handled entirely locally and by
states. He is not in favor of
federal aid to education.
Srb's questions were concerned
with the nation's deficit spending
and how the United States can
avoid another war.
