Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr. referred to allowable forms of aid when he wrote that sectarian schools perform secular, educative functions as well as religious functions and that some forms of aid may be channeled to the secular without providing direct aid to the sectarian. "But the channel is a narrow one," he concluded.

NEW ORLEANS (UPI) Coroner Carl Rabin said today a false wall that hid windows from view in a French Quarter bar "certainly" was responsible for many of the 29. deaths in a flash fire that scorched the small lounge. The bar —"The Up Stairs Lounge" —had burglar bars on at least one window and its fire escape did not reach the ground, according to state records. But assistant Louisiana Fire Marshal Tim Driscoll, who examined the fire-gutted lounge Monday, said it was in compliance with state fire codes. Plywood Wall Bodies of the 29 persons killed in the blaze Sunday night were found on the opposite side of the room from the windows that may have had bars. The bodies were found on. the side where a false plywood wall hid windows that icould have been used as an escape if they had been spotted sooner. The 21 persons who. did escape kicked through the plywood and went through the windows. Fifteen of them were injured in the plunge to the ground and the others stood on 'ledges or fire escapes until they were rescued by firemen. Rabin said HJhe false wall "ceribainly contributed to the death toil because the victims couldn't reach the windows." Firemen have not concluded what caused the fire but authorities were investigating the possibility.of arson. Homosexual Church Ten of the victims were members of the New Orleans chapter of the Metropolitan Community Church, a homosexual church with 47 chapters in the United States and London. A service for the 10 was held Monday nightvin St, George's Episcopal Church. After the service the Rev. Troy Perry of Los Angeles, founder of the churches, said "In this gay community it's pretty well believed that it was arson. The fire spread just too quickly. But of course that's up to the firemen to determine. Supposedly, someone saw one or two persons running from there when the flames broke out." A television station received a" telephone call Monday night from a woman who said: "The fire last night was set by a vigilante group which has declared war on homos in New Orleans. The group is called 'Black Momma, White Momma," after a movie of the same name. The caller said more attacks were planned. The television station made a tape recording of the call and gave it to police. Violence Plagues Campora Regime BUENOS.
