somewhat in recent years when the youngsters were taught by collegetrained teachers Dan Borntrager 62 testifying under affirmation rather than tak ing an oath which violates Amish religious convictions said because collegetrained teachers are very expensive it was decided to let Amish teachers instruct in two oneroom schools thecounty seeks to close Buchanan County School Supt J J Jorgensen brought action to close the private schools near Hazelton He said the schools are not certified by the state and the teachers have only an eighth grade education District Court Judge Peter Van Metre took the case under advise ment after Tuesdays hearing About two dozen persons ap proximately a third of them Amish were in the courtroom to hear arguments in the controver sial case Borntrager a farmer said his people believe they need no more than an eighthgrade education to lead their simple rural life He added the Amish have no objec tions to other people operating or attending the schools they desire He said the Amish thought that educating their own would be per mitted because we are living in a land of freedom of religion Borntrager said the 37 children in the two private Amish schools sing German hymns and have some religious instruction Another Amishman Menno Hershberger testified I just feel hat the Constitution should stand or Iowa just the same as it does for any other state In words almost unintelligible Hershberger quoted from the Bi le if any man lack wisdom et him prayeth to God Throughout their testimony the Amish contended their religious reedom was being violated County Attorney William OCon icll said this is not an easy case o plead against the defendants ecause they are men of good faith but I must ask that the law be upheld SAME Counties must take initiative Safety chief reveals plan DES MOINES State Department of Safety will begin training sessions for 27 of its members on liquor law enforce ment Commissioner Carl Pesch said Tuesday Pesch added that the depart ment will not take the initiative in local liquor law enforcement He said members of the Highway Pa trol will not be included in the training sessions The patrol is fully occupied in much more important problem saving lives through enforce ment of our traffic laws Pesch said Peseh said the patrol is the only organization standing between a traffic death toll of 700 to 800 persons a year and added It has been one of my most disap pointing experiences in this office to see the illegal highball claim more attention than the nearly 600 human lives that will be lost on our highways this year At a news conference Pesch said state law puts the responsi bility for liquor law enforcement with county attorneys He said he would not have the State Depart ment of Public Safety take the initiative in enforcement except under executive order He explained that he meant an order from the governor but add ed he has not discussed the train ing sessions either with Gov Nor man Erbe or GoveJect Harold Hughes said the training sessions have been geared to any crack down which might be ordered by Hughes after he takes office Jan 17 He said a big share of the training should be completedby that time Safety Department members in cluded in the training will be 17 agents of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation and 10 inspectors of the departments motor vehicle registration division and the deal ers license division The commissioner said more men could be added if they were needed The training will include re instructions in raiding techniques the laws of search and seizure and preservation of evi dence Pesch said he feels liquor law enforcement by this or any other state agency would be an arbi trary and illegal invasion of i province established by the legis ature He said however that he or dered the training sessions be ause I am certainly aware that new and novel duties soon may ibe pressed on this department and that my personal beliefs may be outweighed If the liquor laws are not being nforced Pesch said It is more a failure of local public opinion and demand rather than of the methods established for enforce ment Pesch said Atty Gen Evan Hultman has been informed of the raining program Asked if he favors or opposes egalization of the sale of liquor by the drink Pesch said I favor a reevaluation or restudy of
