Students Build $16,000 House By FRANK A ZIEGLER Williamsport Sun-Gazette WILL1AMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — There's more than a diploma to show for the work done by about 100 high school-age students at the Williamsport Technical Institute in the past year. They've built a whole house, and, at auction, expected to return over $16,000 to the Williamsport Area Joint School District. However, the principal idea was to give practical experience many students as possible. Paqt 3 Garden Cliv Telegram Monday, August 5, 1963 rnent to help select colors and cecorations.

Kennedy's only announced appointment for today was with the U.S. ambassador to Turkey, Raymond A. Hare. The weekend on Cape Cod was typical of those Kennedy has spent there since he was a boy.

Many Schools Plan to Preserve Classroom,Religious Activity By GEORGE CORNELL I AP Religion Writer NKW YORK (ATM—One way or another, ninny of the nation's schools plnn to preserve n classroom religious note despite the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision banning prescribed devotional exercises. In some communities fine' observances were being dropped. However, they avowedly , were being retained in other places. The varied reactions wore turned up in a cross-country check by The Associated Press. Some schools plan to modify customs witli the Idea of getting around any head-on collision with the court ruling. But others indicated prayers and Bible reading would go on as usual. In some cases there was a ring of defiance. "We don't care what the Supreme Court says," commented Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama. He nddcd daily Hible readings, without comment, will continue In all public schools, as required under state law. However, a proposal was being weighed to classify the practice as a course of study, rather than an extracurricular exercise. In some states, with similar laws, the approach was simply to allow past procedures Jo continue —'by local initiative. Georgia's school superintendent, i Dr. Claude Purcell, said th p court seems merely to have put chapel exercises on a voluntary basis, adding: "If the schools want to Include a rending of some sort, this would be up to them," In Idaho, whore state law also has required dally Bible readings without comment, D, F. Kngol- nx, state superintendent of public Instruction, said: "I see no reason to change our procedure on tiro basis of what has happened up (•( now. Unless some court tells me otherwise, I plan to udvfciG public school districts to continue to use the same procedure." f In torn* itatat whore Bible rmcllng, prayers, or both have boen required, state authorities linvr issued rulings against the practice, resulting In various al- lc>'natlvcs In some communities. In so nip states, without specific laws on the matter, the view was simply to let past school practices continue, including prayer and Bible reading, If Uiat Is the custom. ''We will go on having Blblo readings and prayers In the schools of thi s state just as we always have/' said North Carolina's Gov. Terry Sanford. Although the court ruled only r.galnst prescribed dcvotionals, an outstanding question seemed to be whether local school boards or oven D teacher, In spttins such devotional*, did so a s nn arm of government? Or were such teacher-Initialed exercises voliintnr.v? So inn lexal experts sny no, Yet tunny school bo.vda nrc Inking HIP position Hint locnlly ordered school roll- Rions exercises nrc not In Iho mandatory category. In 28 stntcs principally In tho Kasl nnd South, atato regulations nave required or permitted Hlbl« rending nnd often the txird's Prayer In schools. Ten stales, mostly in th<> West, prohibit such practice. Tht oth*r 14 states have no laws on the books about It. Surveys have iutilcntpd thnt about 50 per cent of tho nation's schools hnvo Included such devotionals, either under state law or 'without insulations on the matter. Such practices have been required in the District of Columbia incl 1.1 states: Alabama, Arkan- s.is Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Mnluo Mnsschusotls, Now Jersey, Ponnsylvnla and Tennessee. In New Jersey, State Atty. GSR. Aitl tir J. Sill, Issued a ruling that (he law requiring the devotional observances is void, but the sttfj hns met with scattered challenges on the local level. ...... In Massachusetts, State Atty. Gen. Edward W. Brooke also handed down an opinion voiding tho state law n-qulrlng Bible da- votlonnls. This action, too lias met with various countermoves. In Arkana.is Education Com- misftloncr Arch Fortl says be knows of no action taken In rest «nse to the court decision.
