RAG SALUTE QUIZ
Attorney of Prince Georges
Group to Study Oxon Hill
Case Before Ruling.
By a Staff Correspondent of The Star.
UPPER MARLBORO. Md.. May 28.
•^Further action by the County Board
of Education in the case of the four
Oxon Hill achool children who have
been refusing to salute the flag be
cause of religious reasons, probably
will be delayed until the board’s next
regular meeting on June 10, it ap
< Waldo Burnside, attorney to the
board and a former commander of
the American Legion Post at Hyatts
ville, who was requested to render
an opinion on the law Involved, said
^ he intended to delve deeply into the
statute books before writing his views.
Burnside said he probably would
not have the opinion ready before
the next board meeting, although
4 officials of the board Intimated they
would call a special session If the
opinion of their counsel is prepared
It also was disclosed by the board's
attorney that he Intended to look up
the University of Maryland's litiga
tion involving two youths who refused
to take military training. That case,
which was .Anally determined unfa
vorably to the university, may have
some bearing on the principles of law
involved in the Aag salute incident,
The school law clearly requires the
board to establish regulations requir
ing flag saluting, but makes no spe
* cific provision for punishment in case
the regulation is flaunted. There are,
of course, general provisions for pun
ishment in case of disobedience.
The board yesterday postponed ac
tion partially because of the desire
for an opinion from Attorney Bum
side and partially because o* the ab
sence of Mrs. J. Enos Ray. vice presi
dent. w ho was making a radio address
Maryland and Liberty.
Memljers of the board said they were
mindful of Maryland's boast of being
the cradle of religious liberty in de
liberating the case at a two-hour ex
ecutive session. Officials of the Marl
boro Post, American Legion, which
V adopted a resolution Monday night
urging enforcement of the flag-salut
ing regulations without exception,
were closeted with the board during
part of the session.
The students involved are the chil
dren of Mr. and Mrs. August A. Ludke
and belong to Jehovah's Witnesses, a
religious sect. Their father is a World
War veteran, who served overseas.
f One of the girls. Frances, received
a prize offered by the Woman's Club
k of Oxon Hill last year for outstanding
I work In Maryland history.
f Since refusing to salute the flag they
I have been permitted to have their
rla"; rooms while the patriotic exer
1 rises are in progress, and this ar
rangement will be continued until the
1 ichool board takes definite action.
