The Becker amendment Speaks of a Quot voluntary basis Quot for religious exercises in the schools but every educator knows and Many courts have recognized that it is unreal to speak of voluntary action on the part of Young children in the Public schools where the pressure to conformity is overpowering. It threatens the integrity of the Public school system. Significant value derives from the fact that the Public school system is financed by Public funds is responsible to the Community As a whole and is open to All without distinction As to race Creed National origin or economic status. Neither the Church nor the state should use the Public school to Foster acceptance of any Creed or conformity to any specific religious practice the Council said.

Intermarriage Survey being held in state the Indiana jewish Community should have figures available within a matter of a few months showing the rate of intermarriage throughout the state. Or. Erich Rosenthal the Columbia u. Sociologist whose Survey of intermarriage in Washington d. C. And in Iowa has set the u. S. Jewish Community Back on its ear was in Indianapolis this week to initiate the Indiana Survey. Indiana is being chosen for continuation of or. Rosenthals work because it is one of the few states which requires religious affiliation from those seeking marriage licenses. The Survey will include the years 1960 to the present. Or. Rosenthal had been advised that the information is on punched cards which greatly simplifies securing the necessary breakdowns by religion. He Learned this week that the information is available by counties so that differences Between Marion county and some of the Rural sections of the state and also As Between the Gary Hammond Complex of cities which is considered a part of metropolitan Chicago can be detected. While in the City or. Rosenthal was scheduled to address an informal meeting of the City a rabbis and jewish professionals. He was a guest of or. And mrs. Julian Freeman while Here. Port indicates that Reading the Bible at the opening of the school Day is permitted or practice in approximately one third of the responding school corporations reciting the lords prayer is permitted or practice in nearly half of the responding school corporations prayer led by a Pupil or teacher is permitted or practice in approximately three fifths of the responding school corporations. This practice was mentioned As occurring most often with the noon meal the singing of religious hymns is permitted or practice in approximately two thirds of the responding school corporations the singing of Christmas carols is permitted or practice in All of the responding school corporations the use of nativity scenes is permitted or practice in Over 90 per cent of the responding school corporations the Gideon s society distributes bibles in four fifths of the responding school corporations less than six per cent of the responding school corporations reported a change in school Board policy As a result of the recent supreme court decisions relative to prayer and Bible Reading. Commenting on the report David m. Cook president of the Indiana jewish Community relations Council said a it is important to realize that this Survey does not include township school systems. If it had one can presume the results would be even More violative of the Law. Unfortunately instead of generating Shock at the flagrant and widespread violation of the Law the general reaction to the Survey has seemingly been to give Comfort to the position of those who do not want to bring their practices in line with the u. S. Supreme court s decisions on religion in the Public schools. Many school boards and school administrators feel that since the majority of other school systems have not changed their practices that they do not have an obligation to change their own practices. It has been our experience however that in those places where violations have been brought to the attention of the school Board changes have occurred. The Indiana jewish Community relations Council is committed to upholding the Law. If anyone is aware of violations please let us know. It is important in these instances to make an affirmative presentation of the supreme court decisions. We have found it extremely helpful to line up support of leaders of other faiths who have an understanding of the Basic significance of religious Freedom and who Are not moved by the Many wild and irresponsible charges and criticisms which Are prevalent in Many copies of the report Are available free of charge from the Jarc office
