TUESDAY, JANUARY 28, 1969 Bar Court Settlement Of Church Spats THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS WASHINGTON (AP) — A manimous Supreme Court Monday prohibited courts throughout the land from deciding mat- tres of church doctrine. The far-reaching ruling said the •—Constitution forbids civ courts from reaching to "the very core of a religion" and determining if a church is —adhering to its doctrines. The immediate effect is to bar courts from settling p roperty disputes that hinge on controversies over reliigous doctrine and practice. It is likely to forestall break- ways by dissident local churches whose congregations disagree with the philosophy and policies of the parent church bodies. — The ruling directly involved the million-member Presbyterian Church in the United States (Southern) and its dispute with two local churches in Saavnnah, Ga. In 1966 the membership of the local churches, Hull Memorial and Eastern Heights, voted to withdraw from the general church and reconstitute themselves as an autonomous Presbyterian organization. The congregations objected to various stands taken by the parent church, including support for civil disobedience as a last-dith means of achieving civil rights.

The presidential family invited cabinet members, other ranking officials and members of the White House staff and their families to services Sunday in the first of what is expected to be a fairly regular event. Evangelist Billy Graham, an old friend of Nixon, conducted the services for the more than 225 persons attending and asked God to grant the President and his advisors "a wisdom that "is beyond their own" in dealing with the crisis' of our time. Nixon, a Quaker, plans on in- vting pastors of different' religions to officiate at the services. White House staff members on all levels will be invited on a rotating basis. Graham is a Baptist. Although religious ceremonies have been held infrequently in the White House, Nixon said -o- -o- -o- that as far as he knows not until Sunday was a service conducted in the East Room. That room, with its great crystal chandelier and portraits of the nation's first First Family, Gen. and Mrs. George Washington, has been used for many and varied functions—hanging laundry, concerts, news confer ence—butuntl now not for worship. Only one Sunday churclv feature was missing—the collection plate.. Graham noted' this and said that the last time he and the President attended church: together the collectibn, plate was; there but Nixon had forgotten his money. "I loaned "him the biggest bill I had," Graham said, without telling the amount. In his sermon Graham recalled part of Nixon's naugural speech last week in which the new President said "to a crisis of the spirit, we need an answer of the spirit." This view pinpoints the an swer to the problems of today, Graham told the congregation. It's not the material things of life that solve the ills of the world, the evangelist sad, but rather what is found in the spirit. After the guests had left, the President, his wife and their elder daughter Tricia took a drive around Washington, touring some of the areas he lived in since first coming to Washington after World War n.

TYBOB Associated Press Writer CHICAGO (AP) — Lyndon B. jc.nson says he hopes the Nixon administration will expand his domestic programs to make the "quality of life" for all Americans "match the quantity of our wealth." In his first published comments since relinquishing the presidency to Richard M. Nixon ore week ago, Johnson says he had no "acceptable option" tQ escalating the Vietnam war—a war he called "the most frustrating of all crises." The former president clearly identifies himself with social legislation and reveals his regret that international developments prevented him from concentrating solely on domestic improvements. In the article which is both a hope for the future and a defense of his five years in the White House—Johnson writes that "the agony and the cruelty of the American presidency is that . . . the world will not permit the occupant of the office— noi the American people themselves—to attend the needs of this society without diversion." Johnson wrote the 30,000-word commentary on his White House years for the Encyclopedia Britannica Book of the Year to be published March 1. Entitled, "Agenda for the Future: Presidential Perspective," it was released today. On Vietnam, Johnson says he dreaded 'the prospect of being "a wartime president ... but history determined that I should ia ;e the awful choice of intervention or retreat in Southeast Asia. "I could not escape or delay it. Vietnam has been the most frustrating of all the crises I have faced." Although containing several other foreign policy observations, the summary stresses Johnson's concern with the improvement the lot of the poor and, without mentioning it by name, says the new administration should not curtail programs initiattd through the Office of Economic Opportunity to alleviate poverty. "We can turn our backs, if we wish," Johnson writes, "and future generations will say of us: At the very moment when they had more wealth than any civilization in history, they allowed poverty to become a permanent LBJ Memoirs Payment Goes To Foundation NEW YORK CAP) — The first volume of former President Lyndon B. Johnson's memoirs will be published sometime next year, with the undisclosed proceeds—estimated by some at around $1.5 million—going to the Lyndon B. Johnson Public Affairs Foundation at the University of Texas. The publishing firm will be Holt, Rinehart and Winston Inc., a wholly owned subsidary of the Columbia Broadcasting Corp. The president of the publishing firm, Ross Sackett, said the 51.5 million figure "certainly could be an eventuality," but said it was "subject to contingencies." The first volume will cover highlights of the presidency and is expected in about 18 months. At least two more books, covering "the active years of President Johnson in politics", are expected to follow at 12-month intervals. part of the American way of life." However, he adds, "By the time we enter our third century (in 1976), or very soon thereafter, we can, if we will, make the commitments of the 1960s a reality for all our people."
