The letter urged the pastors to rally their congregations to telephone and petition campaigns directed at the General Assembly, call ing for defeat of legislation for state aid to private schools. THE LETTER was read (Feb. 10) in a number of the chur ches. It has been estimated there are some 25,000 mem bers of the 96 Baptist chur ches in the state. The letter did not mention Catholic schools directly, but the campaign was aimed prin cipally against Catholic school students. Legislation has been proposed which would provide students in Catholic and other private schools with certain textbooks and with guidance counseling services at state expense. The letter said it is propos ed "to spend state and local tax money for the support of private schools of which the overwhelming majority are of one religious faith, thereby con stituting state support of that religion." the Hill-Burton Hospital Con struction Act. This program grants qualified hospitals— public and private—Federal assistance for construction C08tS. Mr. Kennedy asked that Hill- Burton be modified to include a program to help modernize ex isting hospitals. He also called for an increase in the amount available for grants to nursing homes. He wants it to go from $20 million to $50 million a year. The President said the nation is dangerously short of physici ans, dentists and nurses. Med ical and dental schools do not graduate enough students to keep pace with population growth and the 550,000 pro fessional nurses and 225,000 practical nurses are too few in number for high quality care, he stated. MR. KENNEDY again urged congressional adoption of his recommendation to put Federal funds into the construction and expansion of medical and dental schools, public ans private. He also urged Federal financial assistance for needy students in these schools. Neither was suc cessful in the past Congress. The President recommended financial assistance to expand teaching facilities for nurses’ training, including graduate ed ucation. He also asked Federal financial help for nursing stud ents. Other recommendations in volving public and private eff orts Included his request for planning grants to support studies of hospital facilities in local communities. The President's message carried no figures on the total cost of his program. Legis lation to carry out his recom mendations will soon be trans mitted to Congress, the mes sage said.
