the six men most often mentioned as possible presidential candi dates five are members of Protestant churches and one Sen John F Kennedy is a Catholic Kennedys Catholicism has been the subject of a good deal of public discussion But rela tively little attention has been focused on the religious affilia tions of the other potential can didates A distinguished Catholic edi tor John Cogiey of Common weal magazine suggests that there is a reason other than mere prejudice for this differ ential of interest WE ALL HAVE legitimate interest in how the president reaches his ideas of wrong and right good and bad Cogiey wrote recently In the case of Protestant presidents with the Protestant emphasis on individ ual judgment it h a s largely been a question of sizing up the man A Catholic president on the other hand would have to ac knowledge the teachings of the church The Catholic believes that the church is a visible body hierarchically organized which speaks with God given authority on questions of faith and morals It is possible of course to conjecture situations in which the religion of a Protestant can didate might become a political issue Take for example the case of Vice President Richard M Nikon NIXON IS USUALLY des cribed as a Quaker If he sub scribed to the traditional Quak er teaching of pacificism many Americans might feel that his religion was a matter of polit ical concern since the president must serve as chief architect of the nations defenses and Troubles ahead for sch oo I bill Bv JOE HALL WASHINGTON The Senate has passed a school aid bill to provide federal grants both for classroom construction and for teachers sal aries Hut there were indications Friday that Ihe House would not approve he salary provisions and that President Eisenhower

veto House Democratic leaders say that they expect to pass school legislation before the 8Gth Con gress quits nut they assert their branch is likely to limit the funds to school construction omitting teacher salaries which were included in the Senate bill The Senate vote was the latest move in a long fight running Publishers of books fight code OlobeGazelU Ilioto by Mussur FLAMES LIGHT UP NIGHT
