WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Mark
Hatfield said yesterday instead of
pushing a constitutional amendment
for voluntary prayer in schools,
Congress should remove "ridiculous
barriers" that keep students from
holding voluntary religious meetings.
Hatfield, (R-Ore.) appeared before
the Senate Judiciary Committee as it
opened hearings on President Reagan's
proposal for a constitutional amen-
dment permitting voluntary prayer in
public schools and other public in-
MANY OF the witnesses were con-
servative spokesmen for the three
faiths and the New Right, and almost
all supported the amendment.
Hatfield said he strongly believes the
nation needs "a spiritual renaissance,"
beginning in the hearts and minds of in-
dividuals and leading to public in-
But, he said, "instead of concen-
trating our attention on initiatives like
a school-prayer amendment, which I
oppose, I would urge . . . ridding
ridiculous barriers erected to forbid
voluntary meetings of students who
seek to meet and pray in non-disruptive
SEN. HOWARD Metzenbaum, (D-
Ohio), also opposed the amendment on
the ground that it abridges the
separation of church and state.
"It's easy to wave the flag, be
moralistic and emphasize religiosity,"
Metzenbaum said. But "you don't
create morality by having prayer in
Committee chairman Strom Thur-
mond, (R-S.C.) said, however, there
are few issues which have commanded
"such strong and clear support by the
American people" as the proposed
Sen. Jesse Helms, (R-N.C.) said
there is "no doubt" but that the com-
mittee will approve it.

Escape to North Carolina
STATE TOURISM officials are pushing North Carolina as a great
place to escape to, but federal prison authorities in California were
afraid one of their inmates might take the idea too literally. Federal prison
officials said they rejected the contents of an envelope mailed by the North
Carolina Commerce Department to an inmate at the U.S. Penitentiary at
Lompoc, Calif. The contents? A North Carolina road map and a guide to
campgrounds in the state. The reason. It might aid in an escape, said T. R.
Kindt, actingwarden at the penitentiary. "The possession of such items by
inmates creates a threat to the security, good order and discipline of this
facility," Klindt said. Assistant Commerce Secretary Steve Meehan said the
envelope was mailed after inmate D. J. Talbert apparently wrote to the
department asking for the map and camping guide. "We've always called a
vacation in North Carolina a great escape," Meehan said. "Perhaps -he
heard about that."
Gorilla at large
A450-POUND gorilla scaled a 10-foot wall at the Lincoln Park zoo in
Chicago this week and went on a short jaunt through the grounds. Otto,
a 17-year-old African lowland gorilla, escaped while zookeepers were
cleaning up his ape house. "No one saw it, but obviously he climbed over the
enclosure," said zoo spokesman Don Garbarino. Keepers found him on a
nearby roof "just looking around and taking in the sights,"'Garbarino said.
The zoo recently has experienced a rash of great ape escapes, it seems.
Kambula, a 6-year-old gorilla, broke loose from the same enclosure only two
months ago. g o
