cited the First Amendment
principles of free exercise of
religion, freedom from
"entanglement" of the state
with religion and freedom
from establishment of reli-

Scharg said a federal
district court in New
York recently ruled in
favor of a Catholic high
school association in a
similar case.
The three-day MERC
hearing is scheduled to

Reassessment of Aid to Is-
rael (PRAI), specifically
your characterization of my
father as being linked with
"anti-Israel and anti-
Semitic circles for many
years."
My father has had very
strong views on the current
Israeli government policies
and their treatment of the
Arab inhabitants in that
part of the world, but he has
never been associated with
organizations or "circles"
which could remotely be
characterized as anti-
Semitic, and for you to make
that inference is an insult to
him, his family, the Univer-
sity of Michigan, the Luthe-
ran church and the commu-
nity of Ann Arbor.
I insist that your paper
publish a retraction of this
vicious attack on my family
by Dec. 30, or we will have
to consider alternative ac-
tions for redressing this
slander.
Very truly yours,
Stanley Mendenhall

We, therefore, retract
the accusations that Prof.
Mendenhall was associated
with any anti-Semitic
organizations.

Meanwhile, in other court
action, Oakland County
Circuit Judge Robert An-
derson on Wednesday or-
dered the discovery process
to proceed in the libel suit
brought by the striking
teachers against the school
over accusations of picket
line violence.
Attorneys for the school
had asked that the suit be
dismissed, while the attor-
ney for the teachers had
asked for a contempt cita-•
tion and $105 costs after his
subpoenas to take deposi-
tions were ignored.
Judge Anderson ordered
the case continued and
Akiva has one week to draw-
up a list of times for the
depositions to be taken.
