Download PDF for this date

The Executive Committee of the National Conference of Jews and Christians will next year begin a study of relationships of the various religious groups in typical American Communities, with special consideration for the political and economic aspects of religious prejudice leading to trouble, it was announced.

The study will be undertaken in approval of a suggestion made by Newton D. Baker, co-chairman with Roger W. Straus of the Committee.

A year and one half will be consumed in preparing the study, and a national seminar on the report is planned in 1935.
