< ippnm nls of iin- Sterling-IU• d bill i
for a department of education witlca
cabinet member at its head presented
further arguments today before th. i
House education committee.
1 ir. diaries O'Donovan. a physician I
of Baltimore, said the bill meant an j
“enormous expense when people art I
looking for relief from the burden of j
taxation."
"WV- are capable of educating our
own children in our own way." said J
tin witness. “without passing up j
the money to a seen tary and his lun -1
lings here in Washington."

New York, opposed the bill's provi
sions for Americanization. The federal i
government would be called upon an- !
di r the measure to define- what Aim ri- j
eanization is, he said, and various i
states might construe it different ly.
