Telegraph Want Ads "CLICK" Negro Rally In Harlem Becomes Riot NEW YORK (AP)—A clash be tween Negroes and police at a Harlem rally Monday nigh touched off widespread violenci and vandalism.

Clergy Divided On Prayer Case By THE ASSOCIATED PBESS Chicago area clergymen have xpressed mixed reactions to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling bar- •ing Bible-reading and recital ot he Lord's Prayer in public schools. Such practice as part of te- luired classroom exercises, the igh court said Monday in an 8-1 lecision, is unconstitutional. The practices held in violation >f the Constitution have been llegal in Illinois public schools since 1910, as a result of an Illinois Supreme Court ru'ing. Dr. Clinton Morrison, professor of the New Testatment at. McCormick Theological Seminary, said: The decisions are the court's in- erpretation of the Constitution, lot its attitude toward religion 01 'eligious institutions. "I am persuaded that the decisions will benefit the church ind state alike by helping to erase the prevailing confusion of Americanism with Christianity." Prof. Hudson T. Armerding, irovost of Wheaton College peaking for his fellow faculty members, said "the college is persuaded that the Bible is not a sectarian book... "We believe it is unfortunate :hal when our leaders are calling tor a moral and spiritual revival, he Supreme Court should deny to our public schools the use of the basic source for the inculcation of moral and spiritual values. .." Rabbi Irving J. Rosenbaum, acting executive vice presideni of the Chicago Board of Rabbis, said the decision "ought to be soberly welcomed by leaders of church and synagogue alike. For they challenge us to make religion sufficiently relevant and meaningful to our young people. .." Dr. Robert A. Cook, president of the National Association ol Evangelicals in Wheaton, called the decision regrettable. "The Supreme Court ruling against prayer and Bible-reading as devotional exercises in the schools marks a sad departure from this nation's heritage undci God," he said. Dr. John A, Gardner, associate executive of the Church Federa tion of Greater Chicago, said the decision "appears to be consistent with the position of the federation's officers. . . . "We are a people under God and the state has always had a heavy stake in the proper practice of organized religion, but the handling of these religious prac tices is not the school authorities province."

Telegraph Want Ads "CLICK" Italian Government In Crisis ROME (AP)—Aldo More gave ip his efforts to forni a center-left government today, plunging Italy nto grave crisis less than two veeks before a scheduled visit by 'resident Kennedy. Moro told Italian President Anonio Segni that his coalition of Christian Democrats, Republicans and Democratic Socialists had agroed upon the new government, but were dynamited by the last- minute walkout of Pietro Nenni's Marxist Socialists. That walkout, dramatic and un- ixpected, caught Nenni in the middle. He had urged his party's Central Committee to accept par- iamentary support of the center eft regime. Nenni's own strong faction in he party split and the dissidents switched to the side of left-whig extremists who openly favor a return of cooperation with the Communists.
