N.c.c.j. Appeals Against Injection of Bigotry in Election Campaign

An appeal to keep bigotry out of the Presidential campaign has been made by Dr. Everett R. Clinchy, president of the National Conference of Christians and Jews. The appeal was distributed today to members all through the nation.

Dr. Clinchy called for a “hard-hitting” campaign based on the issues unclouded by racial or religious bias. He warned that bigoted appeals for votes were “contrary to American principles, to the American spirit of fair play, to God’s moral imperative for brotherhood.”
