Religious Roundup NEW YORK (AP) — Pupils in Israel's high schools get a "skimpy and unbalanced view" of the history and accom-. plishments of American Jews, a new study finds. It says the gap is due primarily to inadequate material in history texts used in Israel. The two-year study was financed by the American Jewish Committee's Jacob Blaustein Institute for the Advancement of Human Rights and conducted by Reuven Surkis, director of Israel's historical society. The study, based on examination 6f Israeli textbooks and interviews with 212 Israeli teachers, found that the poor information Israeli pupils have about U.S. Jews adversely affect's understanding 9f the U.S. Jewish community by Israeli Jews. CHICAGO (AP) — Twenty million Americans are involved in "fringe religious cults" such as spiritualism, Hare Krishna and Scientology, says a University of Chicago anthropologist. 'Irving Zaretsky, after a 10-year study " of the fringe religious phenomenon, says the number may be larger, since participation often is an "occasional 'one- shot' experience." He says the cults often are effective in getting people off drugs, and helping those who have gotten too far out to fit back "into traditional social pat•'; 'terns. . Lutherans Toning Up' Vocalizing to By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - The 16th century Protestant reformer, Martin Luther, said he put the Bible in the people's language so God could speak to them, and also put hymns in the people's language so they could speak to God. That use of the vernacular tongue in Christian worship no longer distinguishes Protestants from Roman Catholics, who began the practice 10 years ago, but Luther's heirs — the Lutherans — still are toning up the vocalizing to God — their songs. The aim is to "enliven our worship," says the Rev. Dr. Robert J. Marshall, president of the Lutheran Church in America, which this week opened its eight-day biennial convention in Boston. The 3.1-million-member de- nomination is the first of three major' Lutheran bodies in this country to take up a proposed new joint worship book and hymnal, drawn up in nine years' work by an inter- Lutheran commission. The goal, projected for completion in 1978, is the first common worship book for all three major branches of Lutherans — nearly 9 million of them. Not all has been harmony in the task, however, even in choosing the songs to include. But the experts have made some concessions to popular tastes in an effort to achieve it. The hymns should be doctrinally sound, observes Dr. Marshall, but he adds, "As someone has said, 'People sing only in the shower and in cfiurch' — so hymns must also be singable." In response to .PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bishops and priests of the Episcopal and Polish Catholic churches are planning a joint Holy Communion service in October to mark the 30th anniversary of the intercommunion concordat between the two denominations. 'WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — Enrollment in Roman Catholic elementary and secondary schools dropped 47,042 in 1975 to 3,372,701, but the year's decline was less than 1 per cent, as it has been for three years. Officials say the smaller decline .indicates a, leveling off trend in a 10-year drop since 1965, a decade in which enrollment in church elementary and secondary schools fell 2,109,653.

Praise to the Lord Isaiah prophesied that, even though God might find it necessary to chastise and even punish His people, one day there would occur a great union. He predicted that this day would be an occasion for great joy and praise. "And in that day thou shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine apger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation." (Isaiah 12:1-3) "And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name i<: exalted.

By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — In the view of Eugene Lang, who. terms himself an "entrepreneurial idealist," this country's export program is a ripoff by big business, "a massive giveway" of taxpayer's money. The aspect of the program that generates most of Lang's ire is the "DISC" portion, under which U.S. manufacturers can set up a domestic international sales corporation and, in effect, cut in half their t^xes on profits of domestic manufactures sold abroad. Said Lang in a letter to Commerce Secretary Elliot Richardson, "The prime beneficiaries would be exporting just as vigorously without the incentive." Most have assets of at least $100 million; they are by nature exporters. In contrast, he continues, small manufacturers who represent the innovative spirit, find themselves with relatively few opportunities, or federal programs to assist them in selling abroad. They are the ones who need help, he maintains. Lang, an expert in exporting the technology of small manu- facturers, and himself the founder of an international manufacturing) consulting and licensing company with sales of $15 million a year, is beginning to hope again. During the .Richard M. Nixon administration, he said, "it was futile to try to promote small business. Secretary Dent (Commerce Secretary Frederick B. Dent) wasn't interested in what I was saying." Now, with Congress considering changes in the DISC legislation, and with Richardson apparently more receptive to the small business story, Lang believes there is a chance to promote his proposals. Lang believes that while big business exporters have the know-how, the organizational skills, the funds and the easily identifiable products, small- business men are faced with what they see as a hopeless task. .Sister Teresa Orozco PMC 12 Garden Ct^ Telegram Friday, Jily 23,1976 "unequal to it^task" and that the people "rivake it great."
