The ruling came on programs adopted in Pennsylvania and New York. The practice had been attacked as an infringement on the First Amendment, which says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or the free exercise thereof." The states are also bound by the amendment. Opinions by Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr. in the two cases noted that the tuition reimbursements if given directly to sectarian schools would violate the first amendment and declared the fact that they are paid to the parents rather than the schools does not eliminate the unconstitutionality of the practice. Of New York's proposal for allowing parents tax credits, Powell said there seems to be little difference in terms of advancing religion between such tax benefits and outright tuition grants to parochial schools. "Our examination of New York's aid provisions, in light of all relevant considerations, compels the judgment that each, as written, has a 'primary effect that advances religion' ahd offends the constitutional prohibition against laws 'respecting the establishment of religion'," Powell'said for the Court. Belkst Homeowner Is Victim Of 51st Vengence Killing BELFAST (UPI) - A Pro\ testant homeowner in Belfast answered a knock at his front door early today and died in a v fusillade of bullets fired at \ point-blank range, the army \ said. An army spokesman said the victim was the seventh man , killed in a 10-block area of Belfast's Old Park district within the past 18 months and the 51st victim of vengeance killings this year. His killers ; escaped. ' 831 Deaths His death raised the overall toll to 831 persons killed in four 1 years of violence among Northern Ireland's majority Protectants, minority Roman Catholics and security forces. The Army generally calls a murder a vengeance killing if religious fanatics are suspected in the crime. The shooting shattered what the army called one of the most peaceful weekends in Belfast in several months. Not a single violent incident was reported .either Saturday or Sunday. An army spokesman credited the drop in strife to barricades and traffic checkpoints created by more than 4,000 British troops sent in to halt a how vendetta developing between Catholic and Protestant extremists: Londonderry Bombings Londonderry fared less Well than Belfast, over the weekend. Bombers S a t ti r d a y caused $130,000 damage to the city's main library and minor damage to a pub and a gasoline station. In scattered incidents in the province Sunday, a bomb rocked a gasoline slation under •construction in the border town of Sdrabane and an anti-tank rocket exploded outside a Couniy Fermanagh police station. Army troops Sunday defused two other bombs found along the border. One of them, weighing 150 pounds and stuffed in two milk cans, was discovered by two County Armagh children who alerted the soldiers. "They were smart to call the soldiers," a spokesman said. "It was primed to go off and would surely have killed' them if they had handled it."

Controlled Conference However, he suggested a controlled press conference with "a couple of people from the electronic media, a couple of people from the print media....You could screen out the matters that are highly improper under the circumstances and concentrate strictly on information concerning the President's position." Agnew again expressed "total confidence" that Nixon was not] involved in Watergate, Time said. He said, Nixon has made a few mistakes in the affair, "but I think they have been very minimal." He suggested setting up the Committee To Re-elect the President might have been one of Ahem. Misjudgement Possible before noon (EDT) Sunday threatening to kill their hostages. The three inmates overpowered canteen guards Guy Lowry and Paul Gray along with canteen inmates August Meyer and Hardy Step, and began a marathon telephone negotiating session with prison officials. Kentucky Corrections Commissioner Charles Holmes flew here Sunday to command the negotiations. "All during the night we were talking to them by phone," said Holmes. "They kept two telephones busy talking all the time to us." Record of Problems Holmes said each of the convicts had a long record of causing problems in the prison. "Each has lost time for hitting an officer and things like that," said Holmes. Shortly after the hostages were released, the three inmates were taken to a conference room-chapel to meet with newsmen. "We was going to kill everyone in there if they rushed us," said Fair, serving a 10- year sentence for armed assault since 1969. "We was risking our lives." The prisoners said a key issue in the negotiations was their transfer to another prison within a 12-state prisoner exchange compact with Ken- tuky. During the news conference the inmates claimed prison officials had agreed to transfer them to a penal facility outside Kentucky. This was denied by the officials and an inmate who acted as a go-between during the talks. The officials said they agreed to such a transfer "if possible," noting other prisons might refuse to accept the men with their long problem-causing records. Tingle and Do/bson .were involved in a similar incident last August during which three prison workers were held hostage for 13 hours. Officials said the three men will be "immediately" transferred to the state reformatory at La Grange, Ky., and kept in a maximum security unit until attempts are made to transfer them outside the state. Other concessions made during the negotiations included allowing the inmates to talk with their families to assure relatives they were all right and promising Fair he would receive medication for head aches.

Publication of the ad coincided with the start of a meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in London to discuss such a moratorium. Among the signers of the newspaper ad. were Britain's Prince Philip, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau and Thor Heyerdahl of "Kon Tiki" fame. Meeting last year in Oslo, the IWC—which has imposed bans on the killing of some whales— nonetheless rejected a call by Cancer Victim Given Special Scout Award RENO, Nev. (UPI) - Chip Hyden died of cancer—just two days after he was given a pecial Eagle Scout, award. The 16-year-old Gardnerville High School athlete had fought lyraphatic cancer for eight months. His father, Victor, said, "He was hanging on until he received his Eagle rank. We are grateful he made it and to everyone who made the ceremony possible." The ceremony was held Thursday and Chip died Saturday. members to put an end to the killing of all whales. The majority view, backed by the scientific committee of the IWC, was that regulation by types and stocks was the only practical method of conserving the species. IWC sources said, however, there was a possibility that the fin whale might be.added to the list of types already banned from killing by the IWC. The commission has aflready declared a moratorium on the catching ot blue, humpback, bowhead,' ' grey and right whales.-', C('.' The Americans, supported by the British, want this ban extended for io years to the three' types of baleen whale- fin, sei and minke—-and to the sperm whale as well. Dr. Ray Gambell of the Whale Research Unit of Britain's National Institute of Oceanography told a news conference last week that stocks of the fin whafle are so depleted that it would take 23 years to replenish itohem even if its killing were halted immediately. Gambell, who is also a member of the IWC's scientific eorrxmittee, said, however, that he was much more optimistic about the future of the whale as a species. "I believe reports that whales as a species are in danger of extinction are exaggerated)" he said. The IWC at its London meeting will also receive a committee report on the likelihood of the non-member whaling' countries of the world joining the commission. READ THE WANT ADS!
