' By WILTON WYVN BEIRUT, Lebanon (Jfi — Lebanon's lawyers are on strike against a system that gives religious groups complete power to enact and administer all regulations pertaining to marriage, divorce and inheritance.

Many interpolations and hand-copving errors made by medieval monks must be eliminated. "Second, the archeological discoveries of the past 76 years have afforded incomparably richer resources for understanding the vocabulary, grammar and idioms of the Biblical language. "Third, many words in the King James version which meant one thing 350 years ago. mean something else now, and they must be corrected to give the true meaning of the word for our time." Lebanon Lawyers Strike in Protest To Religious Marriage Regulation Pulaski Grand Jury to Meet On HAC Report LITTLE ROCK (API—The Pulaski County grand jury will meet next Wednesday, apparently to consider the report of the Highway Audit Commission. HAC recently released a summary of its findings and charged that "waste and extravagance"' were prevalent in the Highway Department operations up until last July i.

Power Integration Proposal Draws Praise, Attack LITTLE ROCK f AP)-A proposed integration contract between 12 private power companes and tile Sout^iwestern Power Administration, a governmental agency, has been attacked and praised in letters received by the Arkansas Public Service Commission.

Lilliard of the Clay County Electric Co-operative objected to the SPA—private utilities integration. vided Into tightly knit sect* of their own. The lawyers assail the system of personal status laws a* medieval and cite these instances: A Jehovah's Witness can't marry in Lebanon unless he changes his religion, since every one m u s 11 be mrried in his own religious court. There aren't enough members of this sect in the country to set up such an institution. The same situation applies lo the small group o[ Lebanese Bahais. Atheists are out of luck, for civil marriages do net exist asd they would have to acknowledge « religious faith in order to get married. The Moslems can have four wives. A Christian is limited to one. Some Moslems con get a divorce by saying "I divorce you" thret times. Certain Christians can't get a divorce for any reason. Prime Minister Sami Solh has proposed that compromise legislation be drafted by a commission of lawyers, religious groups and the government. One suggestion is adoption of supplementary civil legislation on a persona] status. That would give the individual the choice of marrying or divorcing un- c!rr either civil or religious authority.
