Ten Parents The brief argued for 10 par- ents whose children attend St. Philip Neri Catholic school in Midwest City. About 170 pupils of St. Philip Neri rode on pub- lic school buscs which were used by some 5,760 public school students daily. Oscar Rose, Midwest City public school superintendent, testified in lower courts that he permitted the parochial school children to ride as a "good neighbor policy." He said there was no variation from establisll- ed bus routes and no additional cost. However, the practice has been suspended after court up- held a challenge to the practice by John L. Antone. The 10 Cath- olic parents entered the case as co-defendants with the school board. The parents argued in their brief that if the practice were stopped permanently, they and their children would be the parties which would suffer. The brief noted that although the school is church-related, it has a curriculum meeting state requirements and therefore per- forms a public service. The beneficiaries of bus rides are not the school and the c.lmrch, but tile children, their parents and tile entire eonunun- ity, he said. Clear Relationship The brief stated that "it is clear thai. tile relationship be- tween the political and reli- gious forces in the community, all ol)erating within the same social structure, and oSten ser- ving concurrent or overlapping purposes, and drawing upon the salne basic hulnan resources and i)crsonnel, is a matter too iml)orlant and to() COml)lex to injudiciously lump together all aid to church-related schools as unconstitutional. "Church relaled institutions can be aided, but only when (hey. render a service or per- form a function ,;crying the gen- eral welfare of the people of tile State of Oklahoma," the hrief asserted. Cited was a 1946 case in which tim Oklahoma high court ruled that govermnent fund payments could be madc to an orphan' home, even though it was a church-rclated institu- tion, on the basis that "the state is fulfilling a duty to needy children."

THE GUARDIAN AUGUST I O, 1962--3" O Church in Spain Limits Work to Moral Sphere Valencia, Spain, (E) -- T he Church in Spain will oppose at all times any state activity deemed morally harmful to Catholics, the Archbishop of Valencia has asserted. But the clergy has no desire "to command in Spain" and neither does the Church seek "political opportunity" for the application of its social doc- trines, Archbishop Marcelino Olaechea Loizaga of Valencia said in a pastoral letter. The letter, which drew a distinction between the activi- ties of the Church on the one hand and the State on the other, came in the wake of con- tinued Catholic efforts to pro- mote social justice principles based on papal encyclicals. And it followed by only a few weeks the strike in northern Spain in which 100,000 workers were in- volved. The Holy See, in a letter sent at thc end of July to the Na- tional Congress of Young Chris- tian Workers (YCW) here, had called for increased promotion of the Church's social teach- ings. On July 14 the Bishops of Spain urged in a letter issued on the first anniversary of the 1)ublication of the encyclical Mater et Magistra that labor, management and the govern- ment draw on Christian princi- ples in working for a more dignified life for all people. Tlle encyclical itself, consid- ered a blueprint for social progress, was widely publicized during the workers' strike that began last April. It was made clear, however, in June by five Bishops of dio- ceses affected by the strike that they had never ordered their priests to preach sermons in behalf of the strikers. Following the curbing of the strike, it 'was disclosed that several militant Catholic work- ers had been placed under de- tention or deported from Spain during the strike. It is in the light of these events that the Archbishop of Valencia's letter is regarded as clearing the air of erroneous assumptions about the specific role of the Church in relation to the State. Archbishop Olaechea s a i d that "priests do not now com- mand nor ever did wish to com- mand in Spain, or anywhere, except in the field of their di- vine mission and in no otherY "'Look For The Sure Sign Of Flavor . . .
