But others believe just as strongly that "federaliza

must be halted." Paul Friggens reports the pros and cons
of the situation in a January READER'S DIGEST article,
"Federal Aid to Education: Boon or Bane?"
He finds most of the money is spent for "costly,
mushrooming government-sponsored research" that "lures

many youngsters are shortchanged in their education.
Faculty members receiving grants switch full or
part-time to the federal payroll and report on their project
to somebody in a government agency. "A University's con
trol over its own destiny has been substantially reduced,"
says president Clark Kerr of the University of California,
"Projects are duplicative and uncoordinated," writes
Friggens, "extravagance and waste abound . . . since the
great bulk ... is being poured into research for national
defense, health and space. This is creating dangerous im
balance in our academic programs."
To withstand the dangers implicit In federal involve

we must have greater private support of education. One
proposal is for tax credits. A taxpayer could in effect
pay part of his income tax up to $100 directly to a col
lege or university of his choice.
Many schools now maintain Washington offices or rep
resentatives to seek grants. John A. Howard, president
of Rockford College in Illinois, calls the clamor for fed

Howard's college is pushing an 18 million-dollar ex

because of student opinion.
Curtis Siemers, coordinator
of student activities, said,
"The students wanted the bus
painted red since it was go

runs and also to carry
University groups."
The bus was painted over
Christmas vacation and was
used even before school
started. The band and foot
ball team were meet at the
airport by the red bus when
they returned. The decoration
of the bus is not yet com

plans to put gold lettering on
the bus. The side of the bus
