"It's Capitulation" The court action arose from a controversy over the introduction of the McGuffey reader into the curriculum of the Lakewood School in Twin Lakes. The stipulation under which the board members would settle the action were filed with Circuit Judge M. Eugene Bak er Saturday. The stipulation was requested last Monday by the plaintiffs, Harry and Doris Lovely, at a meeting of the parties involved. The board members last month refused the4erms of fered by the plaintiffs because the Lovelys and their counse asked for a written agreement which would leave the use o the McGuffey reader to "the discretion of the teacher." Regarding the board member's offer, Zahn said "It isn't a stipulation. It's capitula tion." "The suit will be taken to court," he said. According to the report filed with Judge Baker, the board members insist that the charges filed by the Lovelys be withdrawn, that the Lovelys acknowledge "that the Lakewood board had the right and responsibility to adopt texts and materials" used in the school, that the defendants "did not place known sectarian material" in the school reading program, and that their charge that a political philosophy has been imposed on the students is "groundless."
