Such a plan won Senate approval last Friday by a vote of 53 to 26, but was expected to be blocked by the House. However, a perceptible shift in sentiment toward the tax credit plan was sounded Monday by some members of the Higher Education Subcommittee of the House Education and Labor Committee. While this subcommittee does not set tax policy, its members are influential in helping to mold house view on matters involving education. The tax credit plan, said Rep. Edith Green, "might go through the House this year." Mrs. Green is chairman of the Higher Education Subcommittee. In past years, she and other key members of her subcommittee had strongly opposed tax credits for college expenses. But now, with spiraling college costs putting an increasingly tight squeeze on family budgets, Mrs. Green said, there has been a noticeable shift toward support of the plan in the House. "We think its certainly worth taking a look at this year," she said. Administration officials oppose college tax credits on three grounds. Prof. Morris To Speak Here Prof. Bernard S. Morris, professor of government at Indiana University, will speak on "Intelligence Research and Foreign Policy Making" at 8 p.m. Thursday in the auditorium of the Commerce Building. Between 1948 and 1963, Prof. Morris served in the Bureau of Intelligence and Research of the Department of State, where he headed the bureau's committee on world communism. During most of this period he also was a professor in the School of International Service of American University. Prof. Morris is author of the "International Communism and American Policy." The lecture, sponsored by the UK Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce, is open to the public. recently-publishe- d growing signs Monday that the hard pressed to prevent income First, they say, it would cost the treasury about $600 million in the first year and about $1.3 billion annually by 1970. Second, they term it "class legislation" that would aid only those with sufficient income to pay taxes. And third, they say that its benefits to taxpayers would be negligible, because institutions would almost immediately increase tuition charges beyond what they now feel they can demand. "In effect, then, we would be subsidizing private institutions of higher education," Secretary John W. Cardner of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, told the Green subcommittee Monday. d Under the plan, annual tax credits would be provided to cover part of the costs of tuition, fees, books and supplies for college students. A maximum credit of $325 for each student would be allowed each year. That amount could be deducted from the tax otherwise payable. The credit would be 75 percent of the first $200 of educational costs, 25 percent of the next $300, and 10 percent of the next $1,000. It would be available to anyone paying college expenses parents, other relastudents tives or tives or studentsif the taxpayer's income did not exceed $25,000 a year. Lesser tax credits would be allowed for those with incomes between $25,000 and $57,500. There would be no credits for those making over $57,500. The tax credit plan was attached by the Senate as a rider bill to reto a store tax benefits for business investment in equipment and buildings. The amended bill is expected to win Senate approval later this e week. It then would go to conference committee for reconciliation of differences. It has been widely assumed that members of the House Ways and Means Committee will insist that the college tax credit rider be deleted. But even if this is done, further attempts could be made this year to win its approval, either as a separate bill or as a rider to some other tax measure.

Kramer was among those suspended for "open and deliberate disregard of the university speaker policy." The policy, set by the school's Hoard of Trustees, states that "it is not in the best interests of the university and oi the country to give Communists a forum in which to speak." University spokeswoman Edna Steinman admitted that the policy "is not and has not been popular with students and faculty." Mrs. Steinman said students had met with tnistees to try and get the speaker ban removed "as far back as 1963 and Bct-tin- a 1961." She claimed, however, that "no one has asked to change it in the last year or two." Stu- dent body president Stillman said that the students "were told that this is a closed issue" by university administrators, and so no attempt had been made to meet with the trustees before the current protest.
