Proposal Brings Up
Church-State Issue

DUMONT, N. J., (JTA)—The
Dumont Board of Education, by
a vote of 6 to 3, rejected pro-
posals by a Protestant group for
a released time program in the
public schools of this commun-
ity. Under this proposal, chil-
dren would have been released
from school during school
hours, to receive outside re-
ligious instruction.
The proposal was opposed by
Rabbi Jerome M. Blass of the
Bergenfield-Dumont Jewish Cen-
ter, Rabbi Judah Washer of the
Teaneck Jewish Community
Center, and Sam Brown, re-
gional director of the New Jer-
sey Region of the American
Jewish Congress. Rabbi Blass
took the position that the pro-
posal was an infringement of
the principle of separation of
church and state and would
create difficult administrative

Shehitah Remains
Problem in Canada

gation from the Canadian Jew-
ish Congress visited the Minis-
ter of Agriculture, Douglas S.
Harkness, and placed before
him the views of the Jewish
community on the protection of
Shehitah and pre-slaughter han-
dling. A bill enacted recently
in Parliament permits the gov-
ernment to make regulations on
methods of slaughter of food
The Minister indicated that
Shehitah would be included
among the permitted methods
of slaughter, but that shackling
and hoisting an animal before
rendering it unconscious would
be considered inhumane.
A Congress submission left
with the Minister and with his
senior departmental officers
pointed out that "the recogni-
tion of Shehitah as a humane
method may be nullified if no
safeguards are available to as-
sure workable pre-slaughter con-
ditions prior to Shehita." The
American experierice as gath-
ered by representative Jewish
institutions in the U. S. was also
submitted in the form of a brief
to the Minister.
In the meantime Canada
Packers Corp., is studying
changes in the present methods
preparing animals for the proc-
ess of Shehitah, and several
demonstrations in the presence
of rabbis and communal leaders
have taken place. Rabbi J. B.
Soloveitchik of Boston has been
consulted on certain problems
involved in these experiments.

Hebrew U. Develops
Fungi Antibiotic

antibiotic against fungi—hep-
tamycin—has been developed
by scientists at the Hebrew Uni-
versity. The new drug is un-
dergoing final laboratory tests
before being tested on human
Current tests are aimed at
establishing the exact toxicity
index and whether heptamycin
can be manufactured in large
•quantities at reasonable prices.
The search for antibiotics
against fungi has increased in
importance because the success
of numerous antibiotics against
bacteria had created an imbal-
ance between bacteria and
fungi, the latter multiplying to
a dangerous extent.
