The statement said, in part: "A group calling itself The Clergymen's Emergency Committee for Vietnam has requested U. S. clergymen to sign a petition to be submitted to the President . . . calling for immediate withdrawal of our troops from Vietnam, thereby allowing the Vietnamese the right of self- determination . . . similar appeals have been made by the General Board of the National Council of Churches and the World Council of Churches. We are incensed that any group of clergymen would attempt to use the platform of the church ... to urge upon the President an action which would be both cowardly and unscriptural. "We are anxious to see cessation of hostilities but ... this can be accomplished only by absolute and strong position against Red aggression in Vietnam." - o - VETERANS PLAN MASS RALLY HERE A program is being planned for Veterans Day, Nov. 11 sponsored jointly by the American Legion and V.
