'Q 14 --THE GUARDIAN OCTOBER 2 7, 1961 U.S. Justice Cuban Exiles Feel School Aid Pinch Washington, (E) --The Fed- eral government will give $1.5- million to Miami area public schools next September to sup- port education of Cuban refu- gee children. But it will give no assistance to parochial of other private schools which have assumed the burden of caring for num- erous Cuban youngsters. About 3,000 are in Catholic schools alone. Abraham Ribicoff, Secretary of Health, Education and Wel- fare, announced the allocation of $1,596,000 in support to Dade County public elementary and secondary schools. The funds, he said, will be lined to help reimburse Dade County for the cost of required classroom construction and op- eration, for counseling and guidance services and for other assistance to about 10,000 Cuban children. The Federal government has ruled out helping Catholic and other private schools which en- roll refugee children since it began its program of assistance early this year. Church-State relations were given as the reason for the ex- clusion in July by William L. Mitchell, Commissioner of the Social Security Administration and director of the Federal gov- ernment's Cuban refugee relief efforts. Mitchell told a Senate sub- committee that he and Ribicoff had discussed the matter of aiding Cubans who attend paro- chial schools, but concluded: "It appeared on the basis of this discussion that the same considerations that were in- volved in the national contro- versy on Federal aid to paro- chial schools were likewise in- volved in the Miami situation." Mitchell told the Senate unit tllat "it was fully recognized that the parochial school system of Miami was suffering a very severe burden." Florida School Superintend- ent Thomas D. Bailey and'Dade County Superintendent of Schools Joe Hall, however, dis- agreed with the Federal gov- ernment and in February said Mac L.
