about what it will mean for the

For several city parochial
schools that are members of
the Wisconsin Evangelical Sy-
nod, the Court's decision has re-
inforced a strong belief in sep-

rowed no materials from WISO

son for St. Paul's Lutheran, said

the Court's decision.
"We're certainly not reseit-
ftul," she declared.
