THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1951 Churches Say Vatican Nomination. 'A Grave Disservice to Nation NEW YORK, Nov. 1. UP, _ The* policy-malting board of America's iargajt Protestant group says President Truman has done "a grave disservice to our country" in nom- Inating an ambassador to the Vatican. The general board of the National Council of the Churches of Christ In the US.A. said in a statement yesterday: "Only a prompt withdrawal or rejection of the President's proposal can save this country from a most unfortunate and unnecessary controversy with reactions that will be cumulative as the issue becomes more widely recognized." . Emergency Session Held The board's request that Mr. Truman withdraw or the Senate reject the nomination- was made at an «mergency session. The statement, disclaiming any religious prejudice, protested what it termed "an alarming threat to basic American principles." It called the nomination '.'wrong In principle, useless in practice; and , . . disastrous to the national unity of the American people." Clark's Name Not Mentioned The board's statement did not mention the name of Gen. Mark W. Clark, whose nomination as ambassador to the Vatican was sent to the Senate by President Truman on Oct. 20. Congress adjourned that same day, without action on the nomination. The national council's board authorized the council's president. Presiding Episcopal Bishop Henry Knox Sherrill, to appoint a committee to. carry out a "program of education" based on the board's statement. Bishop Sherrill indicated he would announce the committee membership next week. The com 1 mittee will seek to coordinate Protestant opposition to the ambassa dorship.
