It'll be held during the Chinese New Year Festival in San Francisco's Chinatown. Religious Sect Under Fire for 'Poor* Schools COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — On one side are Ohio's school officials, armed with state law. On the other are the Amish — « soil-tilling religious sect that came to Ohio from Pennsylvania almost 150 years ago — using the Bible as their shield. In the middle are the Amish youngsters, about whom the controversy rages. Schools and how long the youngsters go to school are the primary points of contention. State and county officials have inspected some of the Amish schools and claim they are not up to minimum Ohio standards. The state board of education has a resolution that puts the responsibility for enforcing state standards aquarely on local superintendents, All Possible Assistance By a 19-2 vote, the board Monday called on the State Department of Education to give all possible assistance to local authorities in such enforcement. And at Kenton in Hardin County, the county board of education has gone to Common Pleas Court to try closing two Amish schools for allegedly failing to meet minimum standards. School Supt. Frank Blackburn says an investigation of two Amish grade schools near Kenton disclosed hat a number of state- prescribed courses are not being taught, and that three of the four teachers have only gone through the eighth grade. Passive Resistant* Th« Amish generally follow a policy of passive resistance, but in this case they found a champion in E. Guy Hammond, a 76- year-old semlretired attorney from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. "I don't like to see people pushed around," says Hammond, who was once president of a Cuyahoga Falls district of the reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (Mormon). He filed a motion to strike out most of the county school board's contentions. It was overruled by Judge Arthur D. Tudor, who said the two questions involved in the Hardin County case are (1) do the Amish schools comply with Etate educational standards, and (J) what is their (the Amish) recourse In law? Hammond has 10 days to appeal. He did not appear in court. Seek Injunction Attorney Carlos Faulkner, acting for the school board, said the only thing sought is an injunction against the Amish operating the schools as they do now. Two more Amish schools — in Holmes and Tuscarawas counties — were ruled to be below state standards at Monday's meeting of the state board of education. The sect originated in Switzerland almost three centuries ago when the Mennonite church's doctrine became too liberal for Jacob Amman, He established the Amish faction in 1693. Many of the Amish came to North America in the early 1700s. Ten children are not uncommon in an Amish family and most modern devices — including cars and electricity — are not used. Each church group is independent from the others and they differ to a considerable extent. The Old Order Amish are considered to be the most strict. The Amish population in Ohio's Holmes and Wayne counties is estimated to be more than 4,000.
