Mrs. Lenders Buried In Common Family Grave The reunion of the earthly remains of a family Monday was com- pleted sadly in the wake of death but hopefully in the light of eternal joy with the burial of the burned body of Mrs. Elinor Landers in a com- mon grave at Holyroed Ceme- tery. Mrs. Landers, 36, died Sun- day of burns in a flame which claimed the lives of her hus- band and their six children while the entire family was asleep in their Vashon home in the early morning of June 12. Ninety per cent of Mrs. Landers' body was burned. Dying in the flames and sharing the common grave are her husband, Cecil, 40, and their children, Kathleen, 12; Michael, 10; Theresa, 8; Pa- tricia, 5; Beverly, 3; and Wil- liam, nine months. Requiem Mass was said for Mrs. Landers Monday in St. James Cathedral by Rev. Victor Cloquet, pastor of St. Patrick Parish, Dock- ton, where the Landers had resided. Mrs. Landers was born in Hennepin, IlL She and her family moved to the Puget Sound area last year from Culver City, Calif. They had also resided in Riverside, Calif. Surviving the mother are three brothers, William Rey- nolds, Joliet, Ill.; M. J. Rey- nolds, Baton Rouge, La.; Stanley Reynolds, Spring Val- ley, Ill.; three sisters, Mrs. Robert Miller, Denver, Colo.; Mrs. James Welch, Chicago; Mrs. William SchmoUinger, La Salle, Ill.; and her mother, Mrs. Mary Reynolds, Henna- pin. Solemn requiem Mass was sung Saturday in St. Patrick Church for Mr. Lenders and the children. Speaking before a large congregation that crowded in- side the Vashon church, Father Cloquet said: "As a family, they have left us the treasures of Chris- tian living. The principles and teaching of our holy faith were the center and founda- / tion of their home. This was exemplified by their fidelity to their Sunday Mass. As a family they gathered to- gether around the banquet table of the Holy Eucharist. This was further distin- guished by the parental care, the solicitude and zeal for the Christian education of their children." The Vashon pastor drew a brief sketch of the members of the family by pointing that Mr. Landers had been "a hard working man, daily providing for the need of his family" and an active Holy Name So- ciety member. Mrs. Landers, he said, was a "loving mother" with "solicitous care of her home and family." Citing the children, he said Kathleen, Michael and Theresa were the first children waiting on the steps of Vashon High School for the parish summer school of religion to open. Kathleen's last paper, which she submitted to her Sister- teacher, had a perfect score. Michael was also learning to serve Mass and Theresa was to have received her first Communion last Sunday. "These are the treasures they have left us," Father Cloquet said. "This is the tribute of a truly Christian life." Father Cloquet also asked for the continued prayers for the family. Surviving Mr. Lenders are two brothers, Kenneth Lenders, La Mirada, Calif.; and Capt. Virgil Landers, U. S. Air Force in England; and his mother, Mrs. Ada Landers, Pleasanton, Kas. A native of Mound City, Kas., Mr. Landers was employed by a Vashon grocery. Shaped in the form of a "T", the common grave on a hillside at Holyrood has the bodies of the children buried two-deep along its north-south arm. The bodies of the parents form the trunk of the "T". Funeral arrangements were handled by the Central Office of the St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Modernization Of Holy Rosary School Begun Forty-year-old Holy Rosary School, 4142 42nd Ave., S.W., Seattle, will be brought up to date, according to a contract let Tuesday, the Chancery office announced today. Bid of W. G. Clark, 408 Aurora Ave., Seattle, in the amount of Bible Ruling Stirs New Controversy (Continued from Page I) Establishment Clause there must be a secular legislative purpose and a primary effect that neither advances nor inhibits religion." Devotional Bible reading and prayer in public schools do not meet this test, he and seven other justices held. But Justice Stewart in his since June 25, 1962, when the court in a 6-1 decision barred a prayer composed and prescribed by state of. ficials from public schools in New York State. The court now has gone a step further, ruling out not only state- composed prayer but also Bible Teading. as a devotional exercise, and recita- tion of the Lord's Prayer. dissent characterized the ma- Justice Clark's majority opin- jority's definition of the Estab, ion, however--as well as the lishment Clause as "insensi- concurring opinions of several tire." He held that the cases raised the issue of the religious liberty of parents who want their children exposed to re- ligious influences in school, and said: "A compulsory state educa- tional system so structures a child's life that if religious exercises are held to be an impermissible activity in schools, religion is placed at an artificial and state-created disadvantage. "Viewed in this light, per- mission of such exercises for those who want them is neces- sary if the schools are to be truly neutral in the matter of religion. "And a refusal to permit religious exercises thus is seen, not as the realization of state neutrality, but rather as the establishment of a religion :of secularism, or at the least, as government support of the beliefs of those who think that religious exercises should be conducted only in private." Although the decision  on Bible readin and prayer ap- plies immediately to public schools in Maryland and Penn- sylivania only, its impact will not be limited to those states. Devotional exercises, including prayer and Bible reading, are required or permitted in 37 other states. A recent nationwide survey other justices--made it clear that the court did not intend to bar reading of the Bible for "secular purposes," such as its literary or historical quali- ties, or the "study of compar- ative religion or the history of religion" from public schools, Auburn CCD Prizes To 19 AUBURN -- Eighty children receiving their first Communion and 19 others receiving vaca- tion school Confraternity of Christian Doctrine vacation school awards Saturday high- lighted the summer religious training calendar at Holy Fam- ily Parish here.

(Progress Photo by Forde Photographers) Negroes Want AcHon Now (Continued from Page 1) commission, Reverend Jackson attle demonstrations were pre- said the human rights group dominantly Negro. This noble could work provided its struc- race, which has produced great names throughout history, is shouldering the crusade alone with but limited assistance of understanding Whites. Their appeals at the Monday open rally in the City Hall plaza for the promotion of an "open housing" ordinance also voice the hidden desires of the proud Japanese, the clannish Chinese, the unfortunate In- dians and the disorganized Fili- pinos -- all predominant mem- bers of Seattle's minority groups and similar targets of racial bias. What were some of the ap- peals? The Rev. Mance Jack- son, chairman of the demon- strators, told Mayor Gordon S. Clinton, City Councilmen pres- ent and other persons in the plaza: "We have had enough hear- ings. We are saying to you, sir (the mayor), that the time for action is now." The mayor in turn proposed to the City Council later during his "annual message" to the City Fathers to establish a $3O,00O-a-year budget for the creation of a 12-member Se- attle Human Rights Commis- sion "to carry out a public ed- ucation program and solicit the cooperation of individuals and organizations in the city in promoting tolerance and un- derstanding a m o n g all citi- zens." This commission would also "assist minority members of the community in finding homes of their choice within their ability to pay" through a real estate listing service. The mayor's proposal was met with mixed feelings. A great majority think it is a "political stall." The real solution, according to Reverend Jackson is the proposed housing ordinance, which is now favored by at least four City Councilmen. A fifth vote is needed to carry out the simple majority. "The mayor," said the Ne- gro leader, "is not willing to take a strong moral po- sition without b e i n g con- cerned where the votes will come." The pastor of the 250-mem- ber Bethel Christian Methodist REV. MANCE JACKSON Keeping In Step Episcopal Church at 172 23rd Avenue, said he and many others are in favor of the housing ordinance "w i t h en- forceable powers." O The enforceable ordinance would g i v e "all persons an equal opportunity to purchase properties on an open mar- ket," he pointed out. It would also prohibit rentals based on race, relIglon or national origin. More significantly, the ordi- nance would not allow real es- tate brokers or apartment own- ers to be discriminatory while selling or renting to minority members. Referring to the proposed 512 Broadway E. $174,000 with an additional $2,000 for plastic-faced classroom cab- inets was accepted. Work will begin immediately and will be completed in 90 calendar days, according to Rev. William J. Power, pastor. Aimed at complete moderniza- tion, the contract calls for exterior aluminum sash, new lighting, public address, inter- communications, and fire alarm systems. A unit in every class room will be supplied by the ew ventilation equipment to be installed. ' Oer improve- ments will include heavy duty linoleum throughout, acoustical ceilings, recessed doorways, and a complete repaint job. An additional stairway is in- cluded in the plans as is a cor- ridor to join the two buildings. The original building was con- structed in 1922 to which a wing was added in 1953.

On the same day it decided the Maryland and Pennsylvania cases, the court in a brief order reversed a decision of the Florida Supreme Court which had up- held various religious practices in Florida public schools.

(NC) ,- A the country have been the steady news diet of Seattleites for some time. But how many figured that these "shows of strength" would ever be staged in their own city? Quite a few of the Seattle Whites and even the Browns and Yellows were noncommittal. "The unrest has been with the Negro all his life," said the pastor. "This is an op- portune time. If the Seattle Negro did not keep in step with others throughout the country, he would have been left behind. If he did not point out the problems he faced, Seattle would have been on an island by itself." This is the challenge facing all citizens today. The chal- lenge must be met and the problems solved through love, understanding, personal com- munication, courage and hon- est self-examination.
