Outcry on Black Points Moral Against Dictatorship, Karpf Tells Social Work Students

PERSECUTION OF MINORITIES IN EUROPE WAS CONTRASTED WITH THE OUTCRY IN THE UNITED STATES AGAINST SUPREME COURT JUSTICE BLACK’S ONE-TIME MEMBERSHIP IN THE KU KLUX KLAN BY DR. MAURICE J. KARPF, PRESIDENT OF THE FACULTY OF THE GRADUATE SCHOOL FOR JEWISH SOCIAL WORK, ADDRESSING THE SCHOOL’S CONVOCATION YESTERDAY.

“ONE CANNOT BUT BREATHE A SIGH OF RELIEF THAT THERE IS ONE COUNTRY IN THE WORLD WHERE CANDIDATES FOR HIGH PUBLIC OFFICES ARE STILL SCRUTINIZED REGARDING THEIR VIEWS ON THE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS GUARANTEED AMERICANS BY THE CONSTITUTION,” DR. KARPF SAID. “THIS WAS THE BEST REPLY TO THE CHALLENGE TO DEMOCRACY BY THE DICTATORS OF EUROPE.”

DR. SOLOMON LOWENSTEIN, PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE OF SOCIAL WORK, GREETED THE INCOMING AND OUTGOING STUDENTS ON BEHALF OF THE PROFESSION. DR. STANLEY B. DAVIES, EXECUTIVE HEAD OF THE CHARITY ORGANIZATION SOCIETY, URGED VOLUNTARY SOCIAL WORK TO ASSOCIATE ITSELF WITH PUBLIC SOCIAL WORK TO ENSURE THE EXPANSION OF SOCIAL SERVICE. FELIX M. WARBURG, CHAIRMAN OF THE SCHOOL’S EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE, SENT A TELEGRAM OF GREETING.

THE CONVOCATION MARKED THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL’S THIRTEENTH YEAR WITH AN ENROLLMENT OF MORE THAN 50 GRADUATE STUDENTS FROM 21 COMMUNITIES AND 13 STUDENTS STUDYING FOR MASTERS’ DEGREES.
