MARMADUKE They're just waitln 1 for us to leave, so they can go back to sleep! Religious Training Class Site Moved STAFFORD, Kan. (AP)—A religious training class, held weekly in the Stafford elementary school for the past 35 years, is being moved to a nearby church this year. The classes are for students from kindergarten to the fifth grade. The school board decided on the move after some unofficial complaints. "Some people felt their rights were being infrinted upon and No More Pats On Wrists for Topeka Youths TOP.EKA (AP)—Topeka police have been ordered by Chief Dana Hummer to crack down on youthful offenders who he said in the past "have too often been patted on the wrists by some of us." In a five-page letter to all members of the Topeka department, Hummer cited laws giving officers authority to arrest many types of violators. One of the laws cited by Hummer forbids disorderly conduct. He said this is a general description for behavior covering a wide variety of offenses frequently committed by youths. He said included are riots and disturbances, boisterous and rude conduct, fighting or quarreling, molesting persons or property; unlawful gatherings; throwing missiles, and committing nuisances. Hummer also urged enforcement of ordinances prohibiting loitering on sidewalks, streets and building entrances, forbidding unauthorized presence and activities in and around schools. "You may be surprised to know," Hummer said in his letter, "that the vast majority of our youth who are committing offenses have very little, if any, respect for law enforcement officers. "I feel their attitude was born in the home and then nurtured by some police officers in that we have been too permissive and lax in our handling of youth when they commit acts which are brought to our attention. "It seem s to me that to many of our young people have lost respect for their parents, for police officers and for society in general. "When these people meet very little control ... at home. . . and then are patted on the wrists by some of us . . . what else can we expect?

Students in the fourth, and fifth grades will have an option to take the class at a church 2V6 blocks from the school. They will be released from school each Friday for 30 minutes for the class. Mrs. Lauri Ritts, widow of a former Stafford minister, has taught the class for the past 11 years. "The class is mainly to urge them (students) to attend Sunday schools—not to urge them to go to any certain church," said Mrs. Ritts. The class this year will be taught by Mrs. Herman Hildebrand. "With all this furor created by the Supreme Court decision," said Halbower, "some parents didn't want their children to sit by themselves while others were in the (religious) program." Halbower said it is still .legal j to have a religious class in the i school building "if we teach com- j parative religion, religious philosophy or religious history . . . | these are legal. "But the minute you give any 1 commentary on one being right ' and another wrong, this would be ! teaching a doctrine." i The class is sponsored by the Week Day Bible School Association, composed of seven Stafford churches which pay any costs involved. The Rev. Elwyn Tedford, president of the association, said only j one church here does not partici- ' pate in the association. "I think most of the people hate to see it go," said the Hev. Mr. Tedford. "It helped to readi I some children that have never gone to church." Kansas State Begins Second Century Work MANHATTAN, Kan.
