Religious Practices in Public Schools
Stir Disputes in N.Y., N.J. Cities

GARDEN CITY. L.I. (JTA)—An
interfaith group called for a ban
on religious celebrations of any
kind in Long Island public schools
during the Christmas-Hanuka sea-
son, the Easter-Passover season or
any other religious holidays. Cath-
olic, Jewish and Protestant leaders
joined in the recommendation
which was issued by the Long
Island Interfaith Council and sent
to the administrative heads of the
110 public school districts in Nas-
sau and Suffolk counties.
Religious neutrality, the council
statement said, meant "not only
that the school should show no
preference for one religion over
another, but also that it should
refrain from the promotion of any
and all religions." The group de-
fined "religious celebration" as
worship of any kind regardless of
whether conducted by a clergyman,
religious exhibits or displays ex-
cept as part of the study of an-
other subject in the curriculum;
and the presentation of religious
music, except when presented for
its musical rather than religious
content. The Interfaith council also
opposed "the substitution of 'win-
ter season' celebrations for a reli-
gious observance" which it called
"a profanation and secularization
Of what truly is a period of reli-
gious significance for Christians
and Jews."

Gen. Herzog said that while the
Arabs are much stronger militarily
than they were before the June
1 1967 war, Israel is in an even
better position and gained a major
geographical advantage by the
war. He said Israel has been suc-
cessful in combatting Arab 'guer-
rillas. According to Gen. Herzog,
some 3,000 of them are presently
:in Israel prisons. He said that 700
guerrillas have been killed accord-
ing to the admission of the El
Fatah leader, Yasser Arafat. Gen.
Herzog, who comments on military
matters on Israeli radio and tele-
vision, said that a new Mid East
war was unlikely because Israel
wants no war and the Arabs are
not capable of waging one.

TRENTON (JTA)—The New Jer-
sey State Board of Education voted
to, take - such legal action as is
necessary" to halt the reading of
prayers in public high schools. The
decision was directed specifically
at the high school in Netcong, N.J.
at which prayers taken from the
Congressional Record have been
read daily before the start of
classes since the school year
began. A similar religious exercise
was started at Wallington High
School in Wallington, N.J., arid
Sayreville. in Middlesex County,
inaugurated a two-minutes period
of silent prayer in junior and sen-
ior high schools last September. I
Las week State Attorney General
Arthur J. Sills ruled that the Net-
cong practice of reading prayers 1
from the Congressional Record
was unconstitutional. He said.
"The use of the Congressional Rec-
ord as source material for reli-
gious readings cannot be employed
to circumvent the Supreme Court's
pronouncements banning school
prayer." But the Netcong Board of
Education voted 7-1 yesterday to
ignore the State Attorney and call-
ed on School Superintendent Jos-
eph Stracco "to continue school
prayer." The board said that until
the constitutionality of its program
is ruled to be in violation "the law
of the land" it will continue the
practice.
The Wallington Board of Educa-
tion approved the prayer reading
three weeks ago and said it would,
be started the first week in Decem-
ber. Officially, attendance at the
prayer reading periods at Netcong
and Wallington and the meditation
period at Sayreville is voluntary.

Kansas City Schools Issue
Guidelines on Holidays

KANSAS CITY (JTA)—The Kan-
sas City school system, for the
first time, has issued a detailed set
of guidelines for Christmas and
Hanuka programing in the area's
public schools.
The guidelines, distributed by
the superintendent of schools to
teachers and principals throughout
the district, are based largely on
a booklet "Religion in the Public
Schools" which has been in cir-
culation since 1961 without any
appreciable effect on holiday pro-
graming in the public schools, the
Kansas city Jewish Chronicle re-
ported.
The booklet was originally pub-
lished by the Association of seiW
Administrators to bring public
school holiday observances in line
with the U.S. Supreme Court's rid-
ings on the issue. It was suggested
as a source work to the Kansas
City school system by an advisory
group representing a variety of
religious and community view-
points. The guidelines state. for
example, that bringing in a Jewish
religious program to balance the
Christmas theme "simply equates
two inappropriate acts." The
guidelines also warn, as the book-
let did, that "altars, crosses, nativ-
ity pageants" as well as the sym-
bols of other religions "do not be-1
long in a public school."
