News SectionwPage 2A THE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUNDAY VISITOR Sunday, November 21, 1948 Priest Challenges Application Of McCollum Case Atchison, Kan.--In an article ap- pearing in the Raven Review, Bene- dictine alumni bulletin published recently, the Rev. Clctus Kohake, O.S.B., Ph. D., challenges the state- ments made by Mr. Edward F. Arn, Attorney General for the State of Kansas, concerning the application of the McCollum (Illi- nois) Act to the schools of Kan- sas. Mr. Arn's interpretation of the case was published by the De- partment of Public Instruction of Kansas in their Monthly Bulletin for September, 1948. Mr. Arn had asserted that any form of sectarian religious in- struction of a doctrinal nature is forbidden in the common school; that officials may not release cer- tain children from the regular daily school program for religious instruction outside the school premises; and finally that compul- sory educational laws of the state and public school system cannot be used to aid religious groups in furthering their teaching. According to Father Kohake Mr. Arn's contention "... res- tricts basically the right of local school boards and local school dis- tricts from determining the type of educational experiences each board wishes its children to have. Certainly," Father Kohake con- tinues, "there exists a felt need in the minds of growing numbers of Protestants and Catholics alike for a more intensified training in mor- als for our youth attending bo*.h state and parochial ~ch0ols." Father Kohake, an instructor in the Department of Education at St. Benedict's college, added that it is "... an unexplainable ano- maly why educators stress the necessity of building wholesome and complete characters, and at the same time exclude from the school the one force capable of af- fording the basis of moral forma- tion." Fr. W. V. Mannix Dies In McHenry MeHenry--The Rev. Wm. V. Mannix, a priest of the Archdio- cese of Chicago, who has lived in the home of his sister at McHenry for the past year or more suffer- ing from cancer, died on Monday morning, Nov. 15.
