Ralph W. Loew, associate pastor of Reformation Lutheran Church, and one of the signers, revealed today. The letter cites published reports of Senator Bilbo's speech on dom estic racial issues this week before the Mississippi Legislature as the reason for the request, Mr. Loew said. According to Mr. Loew, every member of the council wanted to sign the letter which was being carried today to two ministers who were not present at the council's lenten services last night, when Mr. Loew voiced the protest of the churchmen from the pulpit. Mr. Loew was speaker at the serv ices in Trinity Methodist Church, Fifth street and Seward square S.E., and departed from his prepared ser mon on "A Faith for These Times’’ to say: "If published reports of Senator Bilbo's remarks are correct, then we believe that he has missed the clear, unmistakable teachings of Christ. "Christians are meant to be the light of the world, not to behave like Nazis. Christians are to be understanding of their neighbors, not to spread prejudice. Christians are meant to be the salt of the earth, preserving the bond that ties men together—not poisoning them. "If the Senator denies that black, white, yellow and red men can work together with all rights and privi leges of our Nation, then we belie'1 him to be both unpatriotic and .1 Christian.” The 13 members of the council are: Mr. Loew. the Rev. r. Daniel Justice, Trinity Methodist Church: | the Rev. Dr. Edward Gabler, Christ 1 Episcopal Church: the Rev. Elmer jWilcher, North Carolina Avenue M. E Church: the Rev. Dr. Allan F. Poore, Wilson Memorial Church: the Rev. Dr. Warren D. Bowman, Washington City Church of the Brethren: the Rev. Vern J Munger, First Methodist Church; the Rev. Dr. Oscar Blackwelder. Lutheran Chur<^j of the Reformation; the Rev. Dr. J. Lowery Fendrich and the Rev. Whitney Leland. Metro politan Presbyterian Church: the Rev. Dr. Leslie Bowers, Fifteenth Street Christian Church: the Rev. Dr. George Bennett, Lincoln Road Methodist Church, and the Rev. Clarence Fairbanks, Washington Brethren Church. Another protest on Senator Bilbo's speech was sent to the Senate by James L. Branca, District chairman of the Communist party. In a letter adressed to Vice President Wallace as President of the Senate, Mr Bianca said Senator Bilbo has been I provocative of racial disturbances ‘since his appointment as chairman of the District Committee and that he now "urges the people of our country to promote a movement to deport our Negro soldiers after the war is won.” Jap-American Indicted On Sedition Charge By the Associated Press.
