13 Ministers Petition
District Committee
To Replace Bilbo
Thirteen ministers of the South
eastern Council of Churches have
. addressed a letter to the fjenate
District Committee urging the com
mittee to select a new chairman,
the Rev. 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.”
