Religious groups set anti-war action


By The Associated Press
A week of religious holidays has been
met with a strong anti-war drive by
churchmen across the nation.
Four national religious journals, Prot-
estant and Roman Catholic, have issued
a joint Holy Week editorial saying the
United States is "repeating the crucifixion
of Christ" in Southeast Asia.
The move came yesterday as other re-
ligious leaders and groups protested the
war on a broad front.
In a "Call to Penitence and Action," the
editorial accused U.S. leaders of "cruel
deception" about the w a r, of inflicting
massive destruction on t h e Vietnamese
people and supporting an oppressive Sai-
gon government.
It continued:
"Let no one say that we are confusing
religion and politics. Christ was crucified

by soldiers of an imperial army in a con-
quered land under a ruler who enforced
distorted law and maintained oppressive
In other actions against the war, six
religious leaders disclosed plans for a week
long interfaith vigil and fast in front of
the White House beginning last night.
In New York, the Central Conference
of American Rabbis, representing about
1,100 Reform rabbis across the country,
called the war an "unspeakable tragedy"
and called for a complete pullout of Amer-
ican troops by the end of 1971.
Sunday, a group of antiwar veterans
was granted the use of Yale University's
Battell Chapel as a symbolic sanctuary for
draft resisters and deserters.
Three veterans - dressed in their uni-
forms - from a group of about 100 mem-
bers of the Vietnam Veterans Against the

War stood up in the midst of the crowded
Palm Sunday service to formally ask for
the use of the chapel as a sanctuary for
a week.
A former Marine Corps sergeant read
their petition :
"We who have seen thousands of peo-
ple mindlessly slaughtered in the name of
their freedom ask sanctuary for those who
no longer will lend themselves to a con-
flict which perverts the principles of their
beloved nation."
A spokesman for the chapel council
granted the request. The Rev. William
Sloane Coffin Jr., the university chaplain,
emphasized that the sanctuary would be
symbolic because there would be no resis-
tance if federal marshals entered the chap-
el to arrest any deserters or draft resist-

news briefs
By The Associated Press
SEN. MIKE MANSFIELD (D-Mont.) stated yesterday that
the President's power to impound funds appropriated by Congress
should be challenged by a House court suit.
Mansfield declared that President Nixon's refusal to spend monies
voted by Congress "raises a grave constitutional question" that the
Supreme Court should rule upon.
About half the appropriations now impounded are for highway
construction, and over a billion of those impounded are earmarked
for the military.
THE SENATE yesterday approved legislation designed to in-
crease trade with the communist countries of Eastern Europe.
Included in a bill explanding the authority of the Export-Import
Bank, the key provision would allow American businessmen to use the
bank to finance deals with Eastern European countries.
Sales would have to be approved by the President and licensed by
the Commerce Department.
The bill must now go to the House where it is expected to face
hard opposition.
