prayers Debated for 175 years By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International Does the Constitution forbu agencies of government to ex press or encourage belief in God That is the real issue in the national controversy stirred u by the Supreme Courts recen ruling on prayer in publi schools To some Americans the First Amendment means that govern ment must maintain an absolute neutrality in religious matters That it may not even favor be lief in God over unbelief Others feel that this is an ex treme interpretation which goes far beyond the intention of the founding fathers At the root of the controversy are 1G words whoe ambiguity is attested by the fact that they have meant different things to different people for nearly 175 years The First Amendment says Congress shall makeno law respecting an establishmentof religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof At the time of its adoption nine of the 13 states had estab lished churches Some legislators voted for the amendment in the belief that it would prevent the new federal government from interfering with these state es tablishments of religion Others had precisely the opposite in tent Thomas Jefferson in a private letter construed the amendment as erecting a wall of separation between church and state Many then as now took it to mean what James Madison said in his first draft ews in a nutshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES

talks be tween the United States and Russia seem to be grind ing to a standstill and EastWest negotiations on dis armament similarly appear on the verge of stalemate Secretary of State Dean Rusk discussed both issues Thursday with Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin but the talk failed to yield any progress on either problem The civil rights of none shall be abridged on account of reli gious beliefs or worship nor shall any national religion be established The idea that the First Amendment forbids the govern ment to acknowledge God or to encourage religious faith would have been profoundly shocking to many of the founding fathers Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story writing in 1833 said that at the lime the Constitution was written The general if not the universal sentiment was that Christianity ought to receive en couragement from the stale so far as it was not incompatible with private rights of con science and the freedom of wor ship Throughout its history the United States has in fact given official encouragement to reli gious belief in many ways It has for example granted lax exemptions to churches and per mitted individuals to deduct re ligious contributions from their income taxes It has provided chaplains for the Armed Forces and both houses of Congress It has proclaimed trust in God on its currency in its pledge of al legiance in its national anthem and in such national holidays as Thanksgiving Day It is small wonder that many Americans who have grown up amidst these traditions are shocked when it is suggested that the Constitution forbids the government to profess or en courage belief in God Thai however is what the Supreme Court has seemed to say not only in the player rulj ing but in a number of other decisions of recent years The prayer ruling has not been greeted with universal dis approval among religious Amer icans Most Jews and many Protestants share the courts staled belief that true religion it more likely to flourish in America without any orm of government support B Johnson The proposal called or joint meetings of the com mittees to be held on neutral grounds and the chairmanship of these sessions to be divided
