Easter Holidays Ruled Illegal Miami (NC) -- Scheduling school spring holidays around the Easter Weekend is un- constitutional because the practice has the "direct and immediate effect of advancing religion," a federal judge ruled here. U.S. District Judge C. Clyde Atkins ruled that changing the dates of spring holidays each year to coincide with the Easter weekend discriminates against non-Christian students. The suit against the Dade (Miami) County public schools was filed by a Leonard P. Speiller, a Jewish social studies teacher. Speiller's suit argued that Christian teachers get paid vacations over their religious holidays -- Christmas and Easter -- while non-Christian teachers must take sick leave to observe religious holidays. , Atkins ordered the Dade County schools to set spring vacation over a "uniform established period that does not fluctuate year to year." Priest Murdered Columbia, S.C. (NC) -- Father Jarman B. Casey, 38, a chaplain at the South Carolina Central Correctional Insitute, was found dead in his apartment by police here.

Officers went to Father Casey's apartment following a telephone call from a New Hampshire police department, which had been alerted by a woman called by Franklin. When police arrived at his apartment, they found him dead. He had been stabbed twice in the back and severely beaten with a pipe according to Holy Childhood Association Boosts Interest in Missions Pittsburg, Pa. -- "Share Your Love" is the theme and keystone of a program which over the last eight months has been making millions of American school chidren aware of the lifestyles and needs of children in mission countries. At the same time, the program has sought to make the public conscious of how our grade school youngsters are helping children they will never meet or know by name. Sponsored by the 134-year-old Holy Childhood Association, the "Share Your Love" program was initiated by Father Francis W. Wright, C.S.Sp., its National Director, appointed last year to head the three-million-member organization. The program utilizes many approaches to accomplish its objectives. In the classroom, a series of posters carry the "Share Your Love" message, focusing on the children of such major mission countries as Korea, Brazil, India and Ethiopia. Teacher discussion guides for each country provide basic background data and give the history, customs and living patterns of'it people.- A second series of guides explores the games played, the holidays celebrated and the greetings used in each country. A classroom Share-Box enables children to respond to the needs of other children living thousands of miles away by making a contribution of the own. Father Wright operates with a task force of 157 diocesan directors. Father Joseph A. Behr, S.S.Sp., pastor of St. Joseph's parish, Conway, is the Holy Childhood Director in the police reports. Funeral services for Father Casey were held Aug. 5 at St. Joseph's church, the same church in which he had been ordained 12 years ago.

Chief Judge Frank M.

Diocese of Little Rock. Each local Director distributes study material to mission moderators and parochial school teachers, as .well as to Religious Education - - CCD instructors. The program's second thrust goes outside the classroom to the parents and the public. Since many adults have participated in Holy Childhood programs when they were in school, a parent pamphlet reminds them of their involvement with the Association in the past, tells them about the current Holy Childhood activities their children are participating in, and points out ways they can help. The effort to make the public aware of the accomplishments of the Holy Childhood has in- cluded all the media. Included in the "Share Your Love" program are also some experimental approaches. For example, a dozen dioceses are focusing their attention on one specific mission country or area. Pope Defends Catholic Education's Essentiality Vatican City (NC) -- The disappearance of Catholic education "would be an im- mense loss," Pope Paul VI said here. "With its millions of students, Catholic education today renders services so special that everybody can see -- and especially Christians -- that its disappearance would be an immense loss," the Pope told Christian educators. He was speaking to par- ticipants in the ninth in- ternational congress of the International Office of Catholic Education. He warned against slogans branding Catholic education as class-conscious, mediocre, or claiming that it tends to preserve society's defects. "Rejection of any Christian institiution betrays a .false and dangerous view of the Church of Christ," he continued. "Must we say again here that we rightly appreciate the work accomplished by so many Christians in state education in various nations? But we equally emphasize that pluralism in education is part of the logic of the cultural pluralism of our civilization. That is why we encourage you to strive so that Catholic schools may be seen as places of encounter for those who want to bear witness to Christian values in all education. "This demands that the persons placed above such institutions be able to choose their teaching personnel. A Christian school must have Christian teachers and must be solicitous for their permanent formation: This is a question of honesty toward the parents and toward the students." The Pope then voiced what he called "a second conviction, linked to the preceding one." He said: "In these times when scientific humanism threatens to create a spiritual void, the purpose of Catholic education must be maintained with un- failing vigilance."
