Northern Baptists
Warned to Strengthen
Education of Pastors
Ny Caspar Nannes
Star Staff Corr«pond*nt
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., May 21.—
One out of every 10 ministers in the
Northern Baptist Convention has
“no training of any kind beyond
high school,” Dr. Milton C. Ffoyd,
director of the denomination's pro
gram of Study of Theological Edu
cation, told the 40th annual meeting
of tile national body here today.
Declaring that only 36 per cent of
the denomination’s pastors can
qualify for the standard require
ments for ordination of four years
of college and three of seminary
work, Dr. Froyd warned such a
situation was producing an inade
quate leadership which would even
tually lead “toward a general de
nominational deterioration.”
The unusually large number of
candidates for the Northern Baptist
Convention ministry today is “not
a matter of flattery,” but rather an
Indication that many are thinking
in terms of a "short-cut type of
training,” Dr. Froyd continued. Be
warned an oversupply of pastors will
eventually result in an “unethical
scramble for pulpits, competition
not only between age and youth, but
between educated and uneducated,
'insecurity in the ministry, general
lowering of professi6nal morale."
avvuivuiw «
Dr. Froyd recommended four step*
to remedy these conditions. These
were to increase “vastly the output
of trained ministers for the rural
field,” to train them "specifically for
the specialized requirements of the
rural church,’’ to provide "for an
emergency accelerated course of
training for the rural church” in
certain areas where leadership is
urgently needed and to tackle the
problem by “coming realistically to
grips with the economic problem”
involved.
The convention today sent a tele
gram to President Truman express
ing its “profound sympathy” for him
in the illness of his mother.
The meeting this morning voted
down a proposal that the conven
tion appoint a committee to study
the relationship of the denomina
tion to the National Association of
Evangelical Churches.
Four on Committees.
Four Washington area Baptists
were elected to important conven
tion committees yesterday. Those
selected were the Rev. Henry Os
good, pastor of the Hyattsville (Md.)
Baptist Church, Committee on Nom
inations, for the convention’s annual
elections; George B. Fraser, Chevy
Chase Baptist Church, Committee
on Time and Place, for the 1948
convention; the Rev. Ward Hurl
burt, p>astor of the Brookland Bap
tist Church, Committee on Resolu
tions, and Dr. W. 8. Abernethy,
pastor emeritus of the Calvary Bap
tist Church and a former president
of the national body, Committee on
the Order of Business.
Northern Baptist Convention
members oversubscribed the $14,000,
000 postwar World Mission Crusade
by $2,163,601, it was announced last
night.
The convention voted yesterday to
appoint a committee of five or seven
to study the relationship of the
Northern Baptist Convention to the
Federal Council of the Churches of
Christ in America and to report
their findings for a decision to be
reached by the national body at its
annual meeting next year.
Deadlock Bars Choice
Of Bishop Coadjutor
In Western New York
•y Associated Press
NIAGARA PALLS, N. Y., May 21.
—Election of a bishop coadjutor of
the Western New York Episcopal
Diocese ended in a stalemate yes
terday when delegates failed to agree
on a candidate after the fifth ballot
and voted to adjourn until June 16.
Bishop Cameron J. Davis, whom
the coadjutor ia to succeed on his
retirement September 1, announced
he would designate later the place
where the June 16 meeting will be
held.
The delegates voted, 116 to 18, in
favor of the adjournment after a
“dark horse" candidate, Dr. Louis
W. Pitt of Grace Church, New York
City, twice received more than the
required lay vote, but failed to
collect enough votes from the clergy.
Dr. Sheerin Supports Dr. Pitt.
Dr. Charles W. Sheerin, rector of
the Church of the Epiphany, Wash
ington, threw his support to Dr. Pitt
on the third ballot, thereby enabling
the New York clergyman to take the
lead from the Very Rev. Edward R.

Welles, dean of Buffalo’s St. Paul's
Cathedral.
Throughout the balloting, Dean
Welles had steady support from a
group of clergy and lay delegates,
but always was three to four votes
short of a majority.
Dr. Pitt, who was nominated in
closed session /tfter the convention
resolved itself'into a committee of
the whole to receive his name, had
a lay majority on the fourth and
fifth ballots but was one clerical
vote short of the fourth and two on
the fifth.
After the fourth ballot, another
"dark horse” candidate, the Rev.
Joseph Groves, rector of St. Ste
phen’s Church, Olean, withdrew his
name.
Besides Dr. Sheerin, the Nominat
ing Committee's other two candi
dates fared badly. The Rev. Ernest
V. Kennan. rector of Emmanual
Church, Baltimore, drew no votes,
while the Rev. John Neuss, jr„ rector
of St. Matthew’s Church, Evanston,
111., drew his highest total on the
fifth when he received three votes
from the clergy and one from the
laymen.
The Nominating Committee also
had named Dr. Horace W. B. Done
gan of New York City, but he with
drew to accept election as suffragan
bishop of the New York City diocese.
His withdrawal brought announce
ment of Dean Welles’ candidacy.
These were 134 votes. 59 being of
the clergy and 75 of the laity.
