Brotherhood Week to Be Observed in February; Ex-navy Secretary Sullivan to Head It

Former Secretary of the Navy John L. Sullivan has been named general chairman of Brotherhood Week, to be observed nationally next February 19-26 under the sponsorship of the National Conference of Christians and Jews, it was announced today by Dr. Everett R. Clinchy, N.C.C.J. president.

In accepting the post, Mr. Sullivan said: “The big question today is whether the human spirit will remain free or whether it is to be enslaved by totalitarianism. The dignity of man is on trial throughout the world, and the fate of our civilization may well depend upon the outcome. It will survive only if the ideal of man’s inalienable rights is acknowledged, respected and strengthened.”
