The wriM »Urt today.) ™ Br GEOKGE COaWELl NEW YORK UPi - The United Watte, which pioneered the idea of separation o( crurch and state, today Ic grappling with It anew, A wave of controversy has risen about the concept. Two opposing question* hsve been • underscored: Is an effort being made to modify the historical division between church and state? Has the divorce between the two institutions been carried to an extreme, sapping the nation of moral strength? Numerous recent events have rekindled the problem. Among them: 1. President Truman's move to send an ambassador to the Vatican. 2. The question of using public funds for parochial pupils—a matter tijjected to be raised anew In this Congress in connection with proposed federal aid to education. 3. A series of coujt cases, several of them carried to the United States Supreme Court, involving the state and religion. 4. The spread of "releue time" jferellgioui Instruction and kindred - relijloua activity In ecaineetion with the public nchools. 5. Rallies, lecture tours and a flood of literature on the subject throughout the country, usually under sponsorship of church bodies. 6. Formation of "religious liberty" committees and such groups a* "Protestants and Other Americana United for-the Separation of Church and State," aimed at curbing what they consider "a drift toward church-state union." Neither federal nor state government haa ever been entirely de- TOld of religious content. The ques- Mon now being posed is: how much k wise, or fair, 'or in the interest tc the general welfare? "It Is a vital matter for the United States in the present time," said Dr. Sidney Hook; New York University philosopher and winner of a •attooal Four Freedoms award. "If further attempts are made to twwn church and sUt«. "But w* can't let the fear of one danger drive us headlong Into another—which Is Btate control of religion." Philosopher Olvtf View Father John Courtney Murray, Yale professor and a leading Catholic philosopher, said: "While the secularization of our culture goes on, the church is pushed more and more off to one side," he said. "In the end, it can mean pushing religion completely out of public life, and lead to some kind Of atheistic quasi-totilltarlanism." Although It is "all Important that the distinct Jurisdiction" of church respected," he said, and state "be "there are areas of common Interest" to both. Dr. Mordecai Kaplan, author, philosopher and Jewish leader, said there Is "a general trend toward breaking down the separation between organized religion and the state." This separation, he said, has proved historically to be "America's main contribution to democratic civilization" and the main spring of religious liberty. The chief theoretical conflict appears to lie in Just what "separation" means. Where Is the dividing line? At what point do bonds between the two Institutions infringe on religious freedom of the individual citizens? War Games Hit By Death Toll Seven Lives Lost In 'Battle Mishap.' CAMP DRUM, N. Y.
