brief last week before the
Fifth Circuit Court of Appe-
als.
Although the persons
challenging the school
board are not Jewish, the
principle involved is of "cru-
cial concern" to the Jewish
community, for its members
observe "almost identical
holidays" with the members
of the World-Wide Church
of God who brought the
suit," according to the AJ-
Congress brief. If the school
policy is upheld, the brief
added, the result would be
to "undermine the religious
liberty of Amarillo's Jews."
The Federal District
Court in Amarillo, where
the World-Wide Church
of God took the case,
temporarily enjoined
enforcement of the
religious-holiday policy.
The school board then
appealed to the Fifth Cir-
cuit.
"The (School Board's) pol-
icy," according to the brief,
"singles out religious ab-
sences for adverse treat-
ment to the detriment of
members of the World-Wide
Church and others, such as
Jews, whose liturgical
calendars require more
than two days a year of
weekday abstinence from
worldly affairs. Such a regu-
lation is not neutral; on the
contrary, it manifests im-
permissible hostility
towards religion."

Firms Seeking
Change in Israeli
Economic Policy

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Is-
raeli manufacturers have
threatened to halt produc-
tion if the government does
not change its economic
policies but continues to cut
credits.
Manufacturers Associa-
tion president Avraham
Shavit said Monday the re-
cent slow-down in devalua-
tion of the Israel Shekel, in-
troduced as a measure to
wind down inflation, made
exports unprofitable and
only encouraged local con-
sumption of imported goods.
The Association sais it was
considering halting produc-
tion and exports for some
days as a protest.

Syrian Meeting
for Rejectionists

NEW YORK — Libya and
Syria held meetings in
Damascus this week to dis-
cuss ways of strengthening
their cooperation against
renewed Israel-Egyptian
negotiations and "U.S. im-
perialism."
Col. Muammar Qaddafi of
Libya and Syrian President
Hafez Assad met for 21/2
hours Tuesday.
Last year, Libya and
Syria announced plans to
merge, but there has been
little progress in that direc-
tion.
Last week, Libya an-
nounced a friendship treaty
with South Yemen and
Ethiopia, prompting
Somalia to close its dip-
lomatic mission in Libya.
