Unitarian Conference
Urges Co-operation
With Reform Judaism
/
By Caspar Nannes
A recommendation to the General
Board of the American Unitarian
Association that denomination-wide
projects be undertaken in close co
operation with Reform Judaism or
some other liberal religious group
was passed by the general confer
ence of the association today.
The conference is holding its
biennial meeting at All Souls’ Uni
tarian 'Church, Sixteenth and Har
vard streets N.W. Dr. Winfred
Overholser of Washington, moder
ator of the association, presided.
The unusual recommendation step
ping across inter-faith lines urged
that a "special committee on de
nomination-wide projects ask the
Central Conference of Rabbis of
Reform Judaism to appoint a.sinji
lar committee to discuss the possi
bility of "common inter-faith action
projects.
Board Must Act.
The resolution pointed out that
such projects should not "directly
meet special interests of the two
religious minority groups involved,
but should rather direct their at
tention to more universal themes."
This recommendation has to go
to the board of the association
before further action can be taken.
In a session marked by sharp
disagreement, the meeting sent baric
for further consideration a resolu
tion calling on "the Business Com
mittee of the association to correct
ts present practice of rejecting some
resolutions or deleting parts of them
and asking a report on all resolu
tions to the meeting.
Change Is Charged.
During the heated discussion, the
Rev. Amos Murphy of Lawrence,
Mass., charged that the Business
Committee had radically changed
a resolution submitted bv the Rev.
Stephen H. Fritchman of Jamaica
Plains, Mass. Mr. Murphy declared
the entire position of Mr. Fritch
man had been changed by the com
mittee's additions to the resolution.
The resolution submitted by Mr.
Fritchman dealt with American for
eign relations. Among additions to
the statement, it was charged, was
one expressing opposition “to any
form of government dominated by
totalitarian methods.” Another
change condemned Russia's use of
the veto power in blocking "effective
action by the Security Council of
♦ Vie MoHnnc In nr*v*nHnff
external domination of Eastern Eu
ropean countries.” The entire res
olution will come before the final
business meeting of the conference
tomorrow afternoon for action.
Round-table conferences on
“Practical Churchmanship.” “Social
Action” and “The Responsibility of
the Church in Character Education”
also were scheduled today.
Liebman Speaks Tonight.
Dr. Joshua Loth Liebman, author
of the best-seller “Peace of Mind.”
is scheduled to deliver the Pearson
lecture in the church auditorium at
8, o’clock tonight.
The accusation that the United
States, in its proposals for interna
tional control, has been seeking for
itself an atomic energy monopoly is
“plain nonsense,” W. W. Waymack,
a member of the United States
Atomic Energy Commission, declared
last night at a dinner of delegates
in the Mayflower Hotel. Mr. Way
mack emphasized that, in this sec
tion of his address, he was speaking
as “a private citizen” and not as a
member of the Atomic Energy Com
mission.
Mr., Waymack declared America’s
proposal “to lay down the weapon
and dissolve its head start toward
other uses, on condition only that
other nations agree on a plan of
international control realistic, ade
quate and dependable” was made for
the purpose of strengthening the
United Nations. He asserted no
time schedule of years was offered
for the relinquishment of “our de
gree of monopoly” but only one at
tuned “to the rate of progress in
adopting and making effective real
international control.”
Emphasizes Research.
Declaring “there must not be any
room for Communists in America's
Atomic Energy Commission,” Mr.
Waymack said the great need for
Anierican pre-eminence of the
atomic field lay in the direction of
basic research. He pointed out most
of the basic scientific knowledge on
which the release of atomic energy
rests was contributed by Europeans.
The building of Government lab
I oratories, the creation of opportuni
i ties -for young scientists and the
I stimulation of interest in the univer
Isities and industry are needed to
imeet the challenge, he said.
“There is no real cause for the lib
erals of this country to despair,
Richard Harkness, radio com
mentator, tofd the gathering last
night. Noting that President Roose
velt foresaw a swing of the pendulum
to the right following his term of
office. Mr. Harkness said after each
liberal administration the swing be
comes less wide with many of the
reforms remaining.
He said the liberal group formed
by Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, Leon
'Henderson and others forestalled

police said yesterday they were hold

killing at least live—and perhaps as
many as nine—small children they
adopted within the last five years.
Police said evidence indicated the

to 18 months, a few months, police
said, they killed them by blows on
the head.
The press office of the Nuernberg
police department said the husband
confessed killing some of the infants
“because he could not bear to hear
them cry." His wife was quoted by
police as saying her husband threat

Citizens Will Close
Meeting on Covenants
The covenant situation will be
discussed "without the benefit of the
press” in a closed meeting, Walter
Wondrack, president of the Trini
dad Citizens’ Association, anftounced
last night at a meeting of the group.
Immediate discussion of the prob
lem had been advocated, but Mr.
Wondrack would not permit it on
the ground that a private meeting
is more desirable. He also referred
to the Recreation Board ruling re
garding inflammatory speeches in
public schools. The time and place
of the closed meeting were not an
nounced.
The association voted to obtain
a speaker for the next monthly
meeting, however, to discuss protec
tive covenants in general without
involving controversial issues.
Mr. Wondrack commended both
the Metropolitan Police Depart
ment and the Fire Department.
Later Sergt. John F. Ryan, new pub
lic relations officer for the police
department, appeared to acquaint
them with problems of the depart
ment.
The group asked for correction
of traffic conditions on Florida ave
ne between Montello avenue and
Fourteenth street NJE., at Bladens
burg and Benning roads NJ5. and at
Nineteenth street and Benning
road N.E.
Capt. Rhoda Milliken of the
Woman's Bureau spoke on the Com

Thugs Beat and Rob
Chinese Restaurant
Owner in Home
A Chinese restaurant owner was
beaten and robbed early today by
itwo armed thugs who lay in wait
for him in the living room of his
| home at 1611 Crittenden street N.W.
Police said Henry P. Wong, part
| owner of the Lotus restaurant ftnd
i night club, 727 Fourteenth street
[N.W., was met t>y two men, both
with their faces covered by large
j handkerchiefs, as he entered the
front door of his home about 2:45
a.m.
They reported Mr. Wong gave up
without objection $100 from his bill
fold after one of the men had de
manded money.
Beaten About Head.
The two men then beat the res
taurant owner about the face and
head with the butts of thefr revol
vers, and locked him in a hall
closet, police said.
Mr. Wong made his escape from
the closet by forcing the top of
the door with an umbrella or cane
which was in there. After freeing
himself, police said, he called his
attorney. Police were notified of
the robbery by a phone call from
an unknown source.
After notifying his attorney, Mr.
Wong went to Garfield Hospital
where he was treated for cuts and
bruises and admitted for observa
tion. X-rays to determine the ex
tent of his injuries were to be taken
this morning.
Police said the hold-up men evi
dently had been waiting in the
house for some time, since the
large house had been completely
ransacked. Mr. Wong lived alone,
police said.
Motive Not Known.
A man who would describe him
self only as “a friend” called at the
Wong home this morning and ob
tained some clothes for the Chinese
restaurant owner. He said Mr.
Wong was not in the habit of taking
the restaurant’s receipts home with
him at night. He said he knew of
no possible motive for the beating.
Mr. Wong, police said, could reveal
no reason for the beating either.
