Laird yesterday approved use of the words "God" and "supreme being" in military guidance programs. "With regard to character guidance programs within the military departments, I want to state that there will be no prohibition against the use of God, 'supreme being,' 'creator,' 'faith,' 'spiritual values,' or similar words," Laird said. The Army wrote the American Civil Liberties Union in December that such words would be deleted from the character... g4iidanee manual ~ because that program is separate from the services' religious programs. LAIRD said that the military services "consistently have adhered to the position that espousal of religious dogmas or particular sectarian beliefs is not the purpose and has no place in the character guidance program." But he said, "References to these terms are appropriate." Laird issued his announcement in advance of the completion of a study of the matter which he ordered last Friday. He said the study will continue and that "upon its completion recommendations .will be made to me." LAIRD emphasized that "All military chaplains have a continuing responsibility without restriction, to conduct worship services, to provide religious instruction and counciling to interested personnel and their families and to sponsor church-related ac- tivites." The character guidance, he said, is sponsored by commanders in the field "to in, still and strengthen patriotism and a sense of individual moral responsibility. "These programs are separate and apart from the religious programs conducted by the chaplains," he said.

Tb«m«f Ntxl to S«ir« Civil rights bloc raps Dirksen on hearing manner 14 The Republic , Aprfl 4, Associated Press WASHINGTON - The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights yesterday accused Senate Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen of "intemperate behavior" in his attack last week on government enforcement of antidis- crimination laws. The conference, a coalition of civil rights and other groups, urged its members to write letters of protest to Dirksen, other members of the Senate Labor Committee, and to President Nixon. During a March 27 Senate hearing, Dirksen berated Clifford Alexander, Negro chairman of the Equal Employmnt Opportunities Commission for what he called "punitive harassment" in enforcing federal guidelines aimed at job discrimination in businesses. Dirksen said the methods he objected to are " going to stop or somebody is going to lose his autority. I'm going to the highest authority in the government and get somebody fired." One day later the White House said, in response to a question, that Alexander could expect to be replaced as head of the commission. Press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said Alexander, named to his post by Presi- dent Lyndon B. Johnson, presumably would remain a commission member until his term expires in 1972. The leadership conference termed the incident "a shameful feature" of the hearings, 'adding ". . . We believe such a conscientious federal official as Mr. Alexander deserves our full support in this situation." "Civil rights enforcement is in fairly shaky circumstances these days," said a letter sent by the conference to its member groups. "We must meet every slackening and every act of intimidation with firm protest if we are to keep the programs for which we have worked so long and so hard from being whittled away." Dirksen's statement at the hearing "was a piece of grandstanding that ... grabbed the headlines through bluster," the letter said. Statements like Dirksen's, it added, "can intimidate government officials and keep helped enact." them from presenting testimony pertinent to such inquiries ... It also disregards Mr. Alexander's obligation to enforce a law Sen.
