H also reaffirmed support of the Marshall Plan, urged U. S. ratification of the United Nations' Declaration of Human Rights, and called for reduction of armaments and an end to the cold war in Europe. A statement of resolutions was adopted by the commission, an official, 27-member group elected by Methodism's General Conference. The commission is cnnrged -ith organizing church action to obtain peace. The statement said in part: "We feel bound at this time to withhold support of the North Atlantic Pact. Confusion still exists as to exactly what Implementation of the pact Is proposed. There are grave dangers lurking in the possible implementation of the pact and its application in international policy." On communism, the report said church members should "make a calm and objective appraisal of the merits and defects of communism, »uch as Is to be found In the Am- •£erdam Conference" report.
