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
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

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
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

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
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
New Foundation Approved.
A new foundation, the “Episco
