, BIATHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MARCH 25, 1948 Religion Classes Cause Concern Status of Program* ' Under Court Ruling Matter of Debate By Euth GmHner Pra» Staff Correspondent , WASHINGTON, March ». (UP) —Public school officials all over the oountrv »re concerned about the religious education Issue. Their wcrry began two weete ago when' the Supreme Court liMidrd down » decision entitled "McCol]um vs. Board of Education of Champaign; III." That decision held that the con- ttitution prohibits the compulsory public school system from cooperating in the religious instruction of school children; The best available figures show (hat 2.000,000 children In 2,200 communities were attending some klnJ of religious classes during school hours R year ago. The number had doubled in seven years. Today, the number of communities involved probably Is closer to 3,000, educators ssy. Legal ~ experts no* 1 have sifted through the 20.000 words of justice Hugo li. Black's majority opinion, two concurring opinions Rtid one dissent. Their analyses do not agree on what specific religious programs fall within the supreme court ban. Several more law suits may be nee- j essary to clarify the matter. But \ til agreed that the scope of the i ruling goes far beyond Champaign, ] ni. 1 The U.S. Office of Education and | the National Education Association have suggested a simple test. Compare the features of the now-questioned religious instruction plans ivlth the Champaign' system* Ths greater the similarity, the more likely the plan Is illegal. On the other hand. "The greater Ihe dis- umilaritv . . . the more debatable li the application ot the McCollum decision." Court XJsed Three Bases The lawyers say the court's opinion rested on these three poinli in the Champaign plan: • .1 ;1. Public school buildings were used for religious education. <3. The school authorities cooperated in the program. !3. The compulsory school system , was used to assist, religious sects in carrying out their program of , instruction. • NEA lawyers have prepared a summary of the probable effect, the x Champaign case on other religious Instruction plans. Here is what they think: 1. "Definitely unconstitutional"— any plan under which the school system releases pupils from regular school classes and provides classrooms and other services for the,religious classes. Some school districts in at least .' li T state* conduct such programs: Alabama, Illinois, Louisiana - Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Vermont and Virginia, and Hawaii. 3. Also unconstitutional—any plan •where religious education is conducted off school premises but during school hours and with the active cooperation of the school adminis- j trillion. Pupils . are released from , the regular school curriculum and teachers and church authorities co operate in keeping attendance records. 14 State* Use Plan Some schools in at least these ^ states have that type of a plan Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kan *as, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine Massachusetts. Michigan, Minnc-so ta, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jer sey. New York.

Billy Mitchell To Get Overdue Honor Saturday WASHINGTON, March 38. (UPI —His country this week will pay lonjf overdue honor to the iale Brig Gen. William (Billy) Mitchell. At noon Saturday at the Pentagon he will be presented posthumously with a special medal of honor Inscribed: "For outstanding pioneer service and foresight In the field of American military aviation." The Air Force considers Billy Mitchell to be Its spiritual father. For years alter World War I he preached air power. He argued endlessly for a separate air force in all respects equal to the Army »nd Navy, * , Trie things he said and the way he said them injured many fjel- Ings. When the . Naval dirigible Shenandoah crashed, lie made it the occasion for explosively criticizing the air policy oj both the Army and Navy. In 192S he was court martlaled and suspended In rank, command and duty. On Feb. 1, 1924, not long after re- celjing sentence he^ resigned from the Army and spent the remainder of his life working for a separate air force. He died in 1936, eleven years belore his dream came true. The Ifllli Congress authori7.cd the special medal, which was completed only recently. On Saturday, Gen. Carl t>i>aalz, air force chief of staff, will present 11 to Mitchell's son, William, Jr. High-ranking military and government officials will be present. With the Courts Circuit. Paul D.
