Top town officials of Wellesley, Mass., have announced their unanimous decision to seek the elimination of discriminatory housing practices in their areas, it was reported here today.

Following an informal conference with representatives of the Wellesley Fair Housing Practices Committee, the Jewish Community Council and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, Wellesley’s three Selectmen issued a statement of “hearty support” of the principle of fair housing practices.

The three officials, James P. W. Davidson, Robert B. Kimnach and David H. Locke, declared that “equal opportunities for seeking a place to live must be assured regardless of the race, religion, or nationality of the prospective resident of our community.”
