Max M. Fisher, general chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, was presented this evening with the “Lay Churchman of the Year” award of the Religious Heritage of America, a non-sectarian organization founded to combat a decline in religious values.

In accepting the award, Mr. Fisher lauded the “continuing American concern with doing good” and said that the “willingness to share is one of the glories of American life.” Others honored by the Religious Heritage of America were the Rev. Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, general secretary of the World Council of Churches; and Mrs. Marcus Kilch, president of Women in Community Service and former president of the National Council of Catholic Women.
