October 27, 1948
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A proposal to develop a program to combat religious prejudice in the industrial field as has been done in the educational and community fields was adopted here last night at the opening session of a two-day meeting of the board of directors of the National Conference of Christians and Jews.

The proposal was introduced by Roger W. Straus, one of the co-chairmen of the Conference, who said it was “neither complete nor systematized” yet. The program would require the organization of a special commission of industrial and labor leaders as its first step. It was also reported that the organization’s income for the current year was $1,537,000.
