Polish government lifts its ban on crosses in school

Students have won the right to hang a crucifix in a Polish high school, but informed sources said Saturday the government had indefinitely suspended negotiations aimed at giving the Roman Catholic Church legal status for the first time under Communist rule.

Ryszard Domanski, headmaster of the school in Mietne, a village 40 miles outside Warsaw, said Friday crosses would be allowed again in dormitories and the main library. He refused to say if they could be hung in classrooms.

Bishop Jan Mazur said he would immediately end a bread and water fast he began on March 27 to protest the ban.
