A nation-wide campaign to counteract “Mein Kampf” with the Bible, sponsored by 200 leading American citizens of all faiths, was announced here yesterday by the Layman’s National Committee, in order “to stimulate and unify America’s spiritual defense.”

A “Bible Week” will take place from Dec. 8 to 14 throughout the country in cooperation with the American Bible Society and other groups. Dr. Frank Kingdon, chairman of the New York Fight for Freedom Committee to Defend America, accepted the honorary founder chairmanship of this nation-wide drive to observe an annual Bible Week in America, stating that he is certain that “it will help forge American unity of spirit against totalitarian aggression.”

A statement issued by the Layman’s National Committee declares that the proposed campaign will be conducted “on a Red Cross scale with coast-to-coast hook-ups, nationally known speakers, pageants in the schools, movie trailers, posters in every public place and educational institution. Nothing will be left undone to make every American, young and old, realize that the hope for our future lies in faith, and that the answer America is looking for in her present crisis is a spiritual answer,” the statement said.
