"Brooksville, Ky., Dec. 5. -
Judge Harbeson, of the Circuit Court of Bracken County, rendered a
decision in the case in which the Rev. Thomas Hackett, a Catholic
priest, brought injunction against the School Trustees of
Brooksville for asking that that teachers of the public schools be
restrained from reading the Bible and offering prayer in schools, on
the ground that it is in violation of the constitution.
Harbeson dismissed the petition."
