THURSDAY, MARCH li, in-18 BLYTHUVILLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Churchmen Hail Court Decision Some Clergy Favor Ruling on Religious Classes in Schools By Rulli Gtutinrr United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, March 11. (UP) ---Some Protestant and Jewish churchmen yesterday hailed the U. S. Supreme Court ruling against » religious instruction in public schools as "insurance of religious liberty." The Anti-Defamation League 'if B'Nai B'RHh said it now is the duty of nil communities which set aside school lime for pupils to at- lenti religious classes "to re-examine their programs." Some 2,000.000 school children in 2.200 communities in at least 18 states are affected by such "released time" programs. The Supreme Court ruling of two days ago opened all these programs to legal attack. There was no com merit from thrc biggest organization in which Protestant churches are represented— Ihe Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America. However, Dr. Joseph Martin Dawson, spokesman for a newly-formed Protestant group, said here that the decision "serves as the greatest single safeguard of .separation of church and state outside the first amendment itself." Dawson said no canvass has yet been made of the official attitude of the Protestant group. But as the organization's secretary, IIP .said tlu: decision offers a challenge to the 1 home arid church "to provide something vastly superior to (he weak; i substitute attempted on released time under the framework of the complsory school law." Catholics Arrused Protestants-United has accused the Catholic hierarchy of seeking a church and state union "at least at the public treasury." The organization particularly has dcnouno ^1 ed tree bus transportation of pu- * pils to parochial schools—an activity approved by another supreme court decision last year. No Catholic group contacted by the Utu'ted Press had any comment io make on Monday's supreme court decision. No Catholic groups filed any views of the issue with the court while the case was pending. About two rtoreii other groups, largely denominational, attacked the religious class plan which was sponsored in Champaign, 111,, by «i joint Protestant-Jewish Catholic council. At least two stales said they would continue religious classes pending clarification of the court's ruling. Classes continued in Cham-, paign itself and about 65 other Illinois towns. The state public school superintendent said that the program might legally continue if school buildinga axe.\not used for the classes. •'••-' Puerto Rico's Largest Dom Nears Completion To ft Sees Limits To Cut in Funds To Aid Europeans WASHINGTON, Mur. 11. itJPi Sm.
