Started it -� Bake sale set SPARWOOD (HNS) - St. Michael's Catholic Women's League is planning a tea. and bake sale for May 8 from 2 to, 4 p.m. A social evening will be j held the same date at 9 p.m. > JERUSALEM (A P )-I n a move which threatens to break up Israel's coalition government, Defence' Minister Moshe Dayan was reported Tuesday to have proposed amending the country's religious marriage code to allow illegitimate persons to wed. This would be revolutionary in Israel, where the synagogue conducts all marriages. Dayan's action was reported by the newspaper Haaretz which said it was confirmed by 1 an authoratitive source. It said the proposal is being opposed by the National Religious party, a key partner in Premier Golda Meir's coalition government. The party, it is reported, says it will quit the cabinet if legislation is formulated which contravenes the Torah, the five books of Moses of the Old Testa* ment from which much of orthodox Jewish law emerges. Haaretz said Dayan, the hero of the 1967 war against the Arabs, took up the case of a Jewish woman and her two sons, both of whom were declared illegitimate by a rabbinical court because they were the offspring of a bigamous marriage. WROTE TO DAYAN The young men wrote to Dayan of their desire to marry, citing their record of service in the Israeli army. The minister two months ago raised the issue in the government. He proposed that in such cases where persons are declared illegitimate aind not eligible for a Jewish religious marriage, the government should create provisions for civil wed- If the government were to adopt Dayan's proposal, it would invite challenges in other similiar areas of contested religious law. One observer put it this way: "Dayan is doing what.someone will have to do some day. This is likely to be the great showdown between religious and secular leaders that we all know must come."
