LOUIS (T» — A group of Pint tint churchmen and educators today suggested five basic p MK'pks -is a guide to public i Ntot.s in dealing with religion. 1 t >m,t,t-lions were made at i \ i on il Conference oh Heli- i -,\\\i\ Public Education by a fuiiiinittfc headed by Dr. Rufus ]•:. Clement, president of Atlanta rruversiiy and the first Negro ritvteci to the Atlanta Board of Kiim-'.uon. "Whenever there appears to be a :!ire;U 10 these principles," the ivport said, "we should be vitally , .ir.fernod. "As Christians, we have the re ,-[)i):isib«!iiy for helping to bring the nhUo.-ophy of. education as prac- 'vt v ri in the organiz'.uion and pro..•:•;'.!!! of the schools in any com- MMinity into line with this statement 01 principles." Principles Listed The principles are: 1. As to the nature of the child - he is a creature of God; he is if\vfti by God, and he is responsible to God for all of his acts. 2. The right of the child, by virtue of his divine creation, to the :uHes! development of his facul- -.i^s ;i:ul opacities. This places a ;< :m responsibility on home, '.•!r>irt'h and community to see to it :':-. it adeo.uate facilities are provided for educating- every child according to his capacities. 3. Respect for the individual conscience and faith of each child's nUt?gi_nm:e; riot forcing upon him beliefs and teachings which are oifensive to his parents if in the minority, but at the same time •.rlviue; due regard to the faith 01 no:' 1 , the majority and minority. 4. Belief in the community, not or.iy in the sense of our common loyalties as citizens, bin as being brothers, children of God, and as such, having equal rights and re spo risibilities. 5. Since religious truth is a part of our heritage, it should be in- cluded in the child's education wherever relevant to the subject matter of public education. Enrlier another group recommended that public schools should leach the influence of religion "In the sociology of human affairs." despite the ban. against teaching the beliefs of any particular faith. That group agreed last night the relationship of state agencies to church educational efforts ''should be primarily of a regulatory nature." Can't Be Sponsored It considered, under the chairmanship of Rev. John Groenfeldt, Moravian Church executive of Bethlehem. Pa., the plan under which children at the written request of parents are released from school to tatend religious instruction outside the school. On this matter, the group said it cannot be sponsored by the public school nor can it be taught by the public school. The denominations concerned must make the decision to sponsor it and the program has to get its support from the parents. A plenary session of the three- day conference, called by the National Council of Churches, last } night heard a report that Protes- j tants are showing more interest in | the establishment of parochial schools. The conference ends today. A repprt showed that 2,971 Christian day schools with 219,703 children enrolled were operated under protestant auspices. The Lutherans, Missouri Synod, accounted for nearly one-half the schools, with the Seventh Day Adveniists second. The section, with Rev. S. Allan ! Watson of Elgin. 111., the official recorder, found evidence that the Supreme 'Court ban on segregation contributed in a movement to expand kindergartens into elementary schools. He reported that interest in parochial schools by Protestants had j been sporadic, generally stimulated } by some action of the public school , jority leader, strongly opposed him. After the primary, the four pledged support and the senators campaigned for Chandler. Koreans call their-country "Chosen," meaning "land of morning calm." Chandler 305.346; Denney 204.629.
