f*AGE ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, JUNE 20,1963 Integrationists Visit Methodist Convention OAK PARK, 111. (AP)-A quie Interracial prayer vigil at the chancel rail of the First Method 1st Chtirch continued late Wednesday during the church's Rock River Convention. White and Negro Methodist laymen, singly or in two or threes, knelt just beyond the pulpit from which Bishop Charles W. Brashares and district superintendents presided. Those of the kneel-inners questioned would say only that their prayers were for integration, a conference spokesman said. About half of those appearing were Negroes. Most of those questioned declined to identify themselves. The prayer watch, described as "obviously organized" and "quiet, almost silent," was maintained throughout the day sessions, through meal recesses and through evening meetings until the day's business ended shortly after 10 p.m. The noinJelegate vigil keepers were joined by at least one voting ministerial member of the con ferences, a spokesman said. The conference spokesman sai the origin of a mimeographe< statement in tho name "Lay men's Committee for Renewal o the Church" remained undelei mined. The statements were dis tributed by the prayer vigil which later was reported to hav quit using any name. The statement praised "th progress in racial justice tha has been made" in many Meth odist institutions, but complaine about pressures over the appoin ment of pastors on a basis of co or rather than merit. Preliminary procedures fo eventual integration of th church's membership was set u in a 1960 conference. A spokes man said Wednesday that h doubts if preparations are fa enough advanced to accomplis' integration next year.
