Episcopal Parley Votes
Today on Psychiatric Tests for Ministry By Caspar Nannes Star Staff Correspondent * SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 30.— Candidates for the Episcopal min istry will have to take a psychia tric examination if a resolution expected to come up today in the House of Deputies at the 56th Triennial General Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 16 passed. The proposal was approved yes terday by the House of Bishops. It stated that “an examination covering a man's mental and nervous condition shall be inter preted as meaning that a- reason ably careful psychiatric or psy chological examination, or both, should be given” a candidate for the ministry. The motion resulted from a re port of a committee appointed by the House of Bishops three years ago to study the question. Answers from 41 bishops to their queries about the value and use of psy chological and psychiatric examin ations for candidates to the min-, lstry were “almost unanimous testimony as to the importance and the value of such examina tions.” In many of the dioceses, such tests are now given in conjunction with physical and Intellectual examinations. U. N. Declaration Approved. Approval of the United Nations declaration on human rights was voiced yesterday in a resolution submitted to the House of Bishops by the Right Rev. William Scar lett, Bishop of Missouri, on behalf of the Joint Commission on Social Reconstruction. The resolution, to be acted on later in the meeting, declared the U. N. statement was one “through which people of all religions and all faiths can give expression to their highest aspirations.” The motion asserted “the se curity of the United States, along with that of other countries, can be achieved only as every one, everywhere in the world, is as sured the basic human rights set forth in the declaration.” It calls on congregations to study the U. N. declaration so they could do what is possible for its further ance in their communities. It also supported the “international convention for the prevention and punishment of the crime of geno cide and urges its immediate ap proval by the United States Sen ate and its ratification by the President.” A memorial submitted to the House of Bishops urged the con vention to influence “officials of the movie industries, radio and public press to bring about a pub licizing qf Christian marriage standard^^sttjBdof-the present habit c^ufaafiiipyg- easy mar Remarriage Issue By-Passed. The question of clarifying the canon concerning the remarrying of divbrced persons in the church was by-passed for another three years when the House of Bishops decided to appoinfei three-man committee to fjajto the problem further and report to the 1952 convention. A committee report, presented by the Right Rev. Cameron J. Davis, retired Bishop of Western New York, stated that too short a period has elapsed to assess prop erly the effectiveness of the pres ent canon, which was passed at the 1946 convention. The women’s auxiliary of the church announced its triennium united thank offering was $2,000, 000. This sum, presented at a service in Civic Auditorium, rep resented $1,954,544.30 as the actual gift and $45,455.70 interest. A total of $27,166 was given to the fund by the women of the Washington diocese. It was pre sented by Mrs. Robert Marshal Eaves of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, treasurer of the Wom en’s Auxiliary of the Washington diocese. On the heels of the “thank offering” came a resolution from the women calling on the conven tion to interpret “the word ‘lay men’ in the constitution, canons and other official documents of the church, that it will be under stood to include laywomen as well as laymen.” ‘The resolution will be submitted to House of Clerical and Lay Deputies for action at this con vention. New Foundation Approved. A new foundation, the “Episco pal Church Foundation,” to receive and administer large gifts and bequests to the church was ap proved by both houses of the con vention. (A resolution to become effective must be approved by the House of Deputies and the House , of Bishops. The two houses com prise the general convention, leg islative body of the Episcopal Church.) Directors of the new founda tion, which will function inde pendently of the general conven tion, are George Whitney, Harvey 8. Firestone, jr.; Edward L. Ryer son, Russell Dill and the Right Rev. Henry Knox Sherrill, presid ing bishop. Bishop Sherrill told the conven tion the foundation was started to glamorinze the church in an effort to attract large donors who have hitherto given liberally to medi cine. education and research but neglected religion.
