International Parley of Christians and Jews Opens in Switzerland; 100 Delegates Attend

The International Conference of Christiana and Jews opened here over the week-end with more than 100 delegates, representing 15 countries, in attendance.

The meeting, held raider the chairmanship of Dr. Everett R. Clinchy, president of the National Conference of Christians and Jews in the United States, considered reports on various aspects of anti-Semitism, the responsibilities of churches, teachers and cultural leaders in combating the problem of race hatred and the formation of a program of enlightenment which would solve the problem of anti-Semitism. Particular stress was laid by many of the speakers on the important role which the various media of public information–the press, radio and movies–can play in bringing about a proper understanding of the problem.
