PAQS TWKLTH BLYTHETILLI (ARKJ COURIER NEW! FRIDAY, AUGUST 10, 1954 Churchmen Praise President's Speech To World Council By WILLIAM J. CONWAY EVANSTON, 111. (AP) — President Eisenhower's fervent plea to the world's spiritual chieftains to lead the way to a just and lasting peace drew an approving "amen" from churchmen today. He laid his show-the-way chal- children who sat or stood in North- lenge before representatives of 170 western University's Deering Meadow. In the audience were representatives of 163 denominations in 48 countries who are in the midst of a 17-day conference. Eisenhower spoke of a campaign for "a just and lasting peace," and added: "I believe that you spiritual leaders of a great world organization, together with your brethren of other faiths, can lead the way. "The goal should be nothing million Christians yesterday at a session of the World Council of Churches. , It was greeted with applause. Clergymen and laymen attending the convention later told newsmen of their reaction to Eisenhower's speech—including his appeal for a prayerful campaign for peace that could result in a global day of prayer, his public profession of faith and an invitation to criticize government "in the light of reli- j short of inviting every single per- gious^ ideals." A ifalf dozen or more used terms such as good." "wonderful" and "very **Much Welcomed" Bishop Otto Dibelius, leader of I son in every single country of the world who believes in the power of a Supreme Being to join in a mighty, simultaneous, intense act of faith. "That act of faith might take German Protestantism, appraised [the form of a personal prayer by it as a "very remarkable speech," hundreds upon hundreds of millions and added: delivered simultaneously and fer- "li comes from the depths of i vently for the devotion, wisdom the heart and is vary much welcome by the members of this assembly."

Methodist Bishop Wiliam C. Martin of Dallas, president of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA, told a newsman: "I thought it was a very forceful statement of the proper relationship of church and state. Problems in the realm of economic and political life can never be effectively solved until the decisions are made in an atmosphere created by Christian faith and hope." Prof. Adolph Keller of the Swiss Protestant Church Federation said it was "a great moment to hear such a statement," and noted that Eisenhower had made a "declaration of dependence on God." Bishop Weston Henry Stewart of Jerusalem, a prelate of the Church of England in Jordan, said he was most impressed by the President's profession of faith. That was the President's statement that, '"for a moment" he was speaking "as--a- private citizen, a single member of one of the con- stitnt bodies of this council of churches."

Each town in the area—there are 74 incorporated—has a director on the MDDC board. These board members formed the county committees, which in turn named two representatives to serve on the organization's executive committee.

Wright of Caruthersville was adopted for financing the organi- ;ation. Mr. Wright's plan basically was to ask towns to contribute according to their population, seeking 10 cents per person annually.

An income of 525,000 was to be • sought for the first year's op:ration. This week, with solicita- ion getting underway, a report of 5200 obtained was made in a Monday night meeting of the group's executive committee.
