August the Joint Confer ence of State Governors and mem bers of Congress at a meeting in Chicago resolved that the granu should be reduced at least 20 per cent in the fiscal year 19S0. But President Truman has proposed in his- 19S0 budget substantia! raises. ! rather than reductions, in the to tal ot grants. The largest increases I he suggested were $290 000 000 fori federal aid to education and S65,-1 000.000 for increased geneiai as-, distance Even without these new pro-! grams, however, the 19,0 total of grants was bound to be higher rather than lower.
