The barriers of public Indifference and administrative timidity may be harder to crack. But they too can be' oyercome, as some pioneering, communities have already demonstrated, If churchgoing families make their influence felt through PTA's and in school board elections. In every community who can make a lot ot noise and trouble.". .' Still another barrier to religion courses, Powell says, is that teachers feel ill-prepared to cope with them, and do not know where to find instructional materials. This problem, at least, is now surmountable. Two officials of the Religious Instruction Association, James V. Pa-noch and David L. Barr, have compiled a practical handbook for teachers entitled "Religion Goes To School" Harper & Row. It describes lucidly what is permissible under Court rul , id Palm Beach. HewiH preach the opening service of the season at 11 a.m. C. Russell Henderson, musical director, will conduct the chapel quartet and preside at the organ. The chapel was built ' by Henry M. Flagler In 1895 and is non-denominational. Con-, gregatlonal, Presbyterian,., and Methodist clergymen have occupied the pulpit, characterizing its religious spirit over the years. . It has become known to town residents and visitors as Palm Beach's "Little White Church on the Trail." Born In Prestwick, Scotland, some three miles from Robert Burns' birthplace, Dr. Lindsay became a student of Burns' work, and possesses some of his first editions. Dr. Lindsay was formerly pastor of the Baptist Church in Brookline, Mass., and also served as professor of preaching and pastoral administration at Andover Newton Theological Seminary and Boston University School of Theology. Dr. and Mrs. Lindsay are In residence at their winter home on Seavlew Avenue following their return this week. During the summer Dr. Lindsay serves as pastor with the Lake Placid (N.Y.) Club, a capacity In which he has also served 20 years. LT. COL. AND MRS. FRANK LONGINO Salvation Army-Programs Set f9A 1 . "! J NEWS OF RELIGION Dr. Samuel M. Lindsay begins his 20th year Sunday as DR. SAMUEL Bishop Takes Pulpit Work LOS ANGELES (AP) - In an action without precedent in Methodism, Bishop Gerald Kennedy has decided to become a parish pastor, while at ' the same time continuing to head the Los Angeles church area. "I believe In the local church more than ever," he said, In announcing that he will become senior minister of. First United Methodist Church, Pasadena, on Dec. 8. "I believe that If Christianity. Is to win It will be on that front. It seems to me that a bishop or any other bureaucrat needs to participate responsibly where the action is."

In that time, Methodists have given more than half a billion dollars to the building of churches and to other phases of the church's mission in financial crusades. led by the denominational staff of professional fund-raisers, according to the Rev. Dr. Alton E.Lowe, New York. By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International A large majority of America's schools are still Ignoring the Supreme Court's Invitation to teach objectively about religion. The Invitation was extended live years ago, In the same ruling that held it was unconstitutional to conduct devotional exeitijes in public school classrooms. While government-sponsored acts of worship violate the constitutional guarantee of religious liberty, the Court said, there Is no legal, barrier to "study of the Bible or of religion, when presented ob-lectively as part of a secular program of education." This means that any public school Is free to offer academic courses In which students get acquainted with the Bible as one of the world's greatest masterpieces of literature, or make a comparative study of the various religious traditions that have helped to shape American history. Schools also can and, the Supreme Court strongly suggested, should Include consideration of religious viewpoints in social science, ethics, philosophy courses. Some schools are responding to this wide-open opportunity to help overcome the religious illiteracy of American youth. A survey by the Religious Instruction Association turned up 26 communities, ranging geographically from Newton, Mass., to Seattle, Wash., in which public high schools are offering courses ofi the Bible. At least six other communities, scattered across the nation from Claremont, Calif., to New Haven, Conn., are giving their students a chance to study 'comparative religion, the history of religions, or the role of religion as a formative influence In culture. There may be a few other communities that the Religious Instruction Association doesn't know about. But at best, only a tiny fraction of the nation's children are now getting the opportunity to gain a few solid facts to match against all of the freewheeling opinions about religion which swirl about their heads. Why are so few schools offering the kind of religious instruction that the Supreme Court approved as constitutional? ' Dr. Theodore Powell, commissioner of Connecticut state department of education, says there are several reasons why school administrators hold back from religion courses. In the first place, he says, there has been no great public demand foe them. Parents besiege schools to provide instruction on sex, drinking and auto driving, but evidently "do not consider religious knowledge important." Even if there were a public demand for courses about religion, school administrators "might be apprehensive about the few bigots and crackpots Christian Business Men's.

As the Psalmist became increasingly conscious of God's forgiving love, he was able to avail himself of two other spiritual antidotes: joy and praise. Thus he advised everyone to "Be glad . . . rejoice . . . and shout for joy." Both joy and praise are potent factors In the building of a healthy body. .They are ingredients in a healing balm that soothes the nerves and improves circulation through an increased consciousness of life. One who gives himself to joy and praine and thanksgiving focuses attention upon life's goodness. He finds more reasons for joy and praise,' and thus he is receptive to the healing, restorative, life-giving poner of God. When he tools on the bright side of every situation, he discovers that the world looks better from behind a smile, while he and his smile look better to the world. Avail yourself of the restorative powers of forgiveness and joy and prie! U'eckly Unity. tJnnysf D'tlrrletti Onity of loll Worth Unity tf th Palm Whts 101 WW 22nd St. 27i-7M 631 M.
