Who Killed the School Bill?

Bolling, Richard
July 1956
New Republic;7/16/56, Vol. 135 Issue 3, p7
This article focuses on the incident in which U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower on July 6, 1956, through White House Press Secretary James Hagerty, reiterated his support of legislation on federal aid to school construction and his belief that the so-called Powell Amendment was extraneous to such legislation. Hagerty, by implication at least, indicated that the Administration was not too concerned about whether the bill that passed the U.S. House was the Kelley bill or a bill containing all the recommendations made only by the Administration. Had the President made his statement earlier and used a little of his great influence on the members of his party in the U.S. Congress it is almost sure that a law would have been enacted at the session of Congress.
