Zim Extends 'Shalom' to Stowaways ZOA. Focuses Its Concern on Israeli 'Water and Peace'

NEW YORK (JTA)—A 38-year-old woman, who claims she and her
12-year-old daughter are Jewish, is on a two-week Caribbean cruise on
the Israeli liner, the Shalom, which she and her daughter boarded in
Haiti as stowaways.
Mrs. Evelyn Marigliano, who was born in Hungary, and her daugh-
ter, who was born in France, boarded the liner in Port-au-Prince, Haiti,
in the mistaken belief it was bound for Israel, where she seeks entry
as a Jew.
When the Shalom docked in New York, U.S. immigration officials
refused to allow her to land because the only document she had was
an expired French passport. The officials described the pair as persons
"without a country."
Officials of the Zim Line, owners of the Shalom, said that she and
her daughter had been assigned a cabin and that Mrs. Marigliano had
been given "housekeeping duties" for the duration of the cruise.
The officials said that Israeli authorities were investigating the
woman's claims to entry under the Law of Return. If the claim is
accepted, they added, the woman and her daughter could leave the
Shalom in Israel, for which it will sail April 1 after returning to New
York from the current cruise.

Education Body Offers Substitute
Plan for Aid to Religious Studies

American Association for Jewish
Education attacked the "Morse-
Perkins Bill" as "antagonistic to
the best interests of this country."
In a letter to members of the
Senate Committee who are now
considering the bill, the associa-
tion pointed out, that while it
welcomes the effort on the part of
the Federal Government to aid
public education, it views "with
profound concern, those provisions
of the Bill which, under the
guise of alleviating deprivation,
would extend financial aid to pri-
vate and parochial schools."
The association said that it was
"equally troubled by the en-
couragement and sanction which
these bills • would offer to 'dual
enrollment' or 'shared time.' Pre-
cisely because these proposals
are less obvious violations of the
separation of Church and State,"
the AAJE stated, "they may appear
to be plausible ameliorations of
the problems which private and
parochial schools face. To the
best of our knowledge, there is
no example of their meaningful
workability in any school district
where they have been attempted."

The association went on to
point out that if acceptance of
dual enrollment is made a pre-
requisite to qualification for
public aid, "private groups, re-
ligious and others, will have
an official and sanctioning role
in determining what shall be
taught in the public school.
Surely, such a system not mere-
ly invites, but requires the de-
cisive intrusion of religious
groups into the curriculum of
public education."

"It is shocking," the letter went on,
"to think that the Congress of
the United States would legislate
so rashly in an area of education,
without experience, guidelines or
proposals to direct their recom-

The AAJE recommended that
Congress explore an alternative
plan under which public educa-
tion would be available to all in
public facilities during the
morning hours of the day.
"When this required common
curriculum is completed at 1 or
2 o'clock, parents of all stu-
dents shall have the following
options at their own expense: 1.
To enroll their children in re-.
ligious schools of parochial or
other character; 2. To enroll their
children in any private school;
3. To have their children attend
special classes in public school
facilities for the gifted, the ex-
ceptional, for remedial pur-
poses, etc?'

Under this proposal, the AAJE
pointed out, which can be develop-
ed in detail, the parochial school
would be relieved of the cost of
all subjects other than actual re-
ligious education; Parents who do
not desire religious education for
their children would have an
equal opportunity to give those
children any special training
which. they prefer; The public
school and public school authori-
ties would not be involved in
sharing time with religious auth-
orities; Religious authorities
would not be involved in deter-
mining the content of the public
school curriculum; All children
would attend all classes as indi-
viduals and not as religious blocs.

The association charged: "There
is no national study which re-
veals how the shared time pro-
gram works in those communi-
ties in which it has been adopted.
Far from creating a sense of
community, shared - lime," • the
