Asserting that "we must face frankly the fact that I a most dangerous inter-racial situa tion now threatens our country. the i Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America, has made public here a "constructive program" for protecting negroes against mob vio lence, bettering their condition and remoing the cause of racial troubles. The plan was formulated by the council acting in conjunction with a committee representing white and negro citizens from all sections of the United States. At a meeting of the committee held here recently a dis cussion of the racial situation took place and it was decided to fsene a cali to the citizens of the United States to act in conformity with the high ideals of democracy and Chris tianity in the present condition of strained relations between the races." The statement outlining the pro gram is signed by Frank G. Law son, chairman of its administrative com mittee; Wilbur P. T irk field, chairman of the committee on negro churches. and hCarles S X.acfarland .general secretary of the council. Ask Protection From Mob. The first paragraph of the program urgea protection against mob vio lence. It follows: "The government, local, state and national, should impartially guar antee to all classes security of life and property. Mob violence is be coming a 'crowd habit. When life and property are ruthlessly taken, when men and women are lynched with.no protection from officers or courts. law and order are trampled under foot. We call upon the pulpit, the press and all good people to create a public sentiment that will support necessary legislation for the enforce ment of existing laws, that life, lib erty and the pursuit of happiness may oe equally secured to all classes. "The negro should have economic justice, equal pay for equal work and with fair worklntr and living Condi tions," the program continues. "The entrance of large numbers of negroes into the various industries empnastzes the necessity of an icantediate ami cable adjustment of relations with white emp1oyers and fellow-workers." Cause Of Mob Violence. Referring to crimes that provoke mob violence it is said: "we call upon men and women everywhere to protect the sanctity of nome- ana womannooa. we record with satisfaction the growing enlist ment of nesrro leaders in a nroeram of education and ChrisUanizationsuch as tends to prevent crimes that pro voke mob violence. The boms of the negro should receive the same meas ure of respect and protection as that of other Americans, and the sanctity of his home relations should be safe guarded in every possible way. Swift ana impartial action or tne taw soouia strike the violator of the sanctity of anv home, white or black. Adequate recreational provisions are recommenoea ior negroes on me ground that it is "fundamental to the welfare and efficiency of society." The plea of the negro for "equal traveling accommodations for equal charges" is also indorsed. "Adequate educational facilities for negro children and youth should be provided not only as a national obli gation but as a necessity for national welfare," the committee says. "We emphasize the urgency of giving to the negro his full share of local and j national funds," It is also asserted that "qualifications for franchise should be administered irre spective of race, creed or color Cooperation Is Urged, The council advocates closer coop eration between white persons and negroes. This could be brought about. it. says, by organizing locax commit tees of white persons and negroes in towns and communities for the con sideration of inter-racial welfare. The council also recommends that the governor of each state appoint a standing committee for the study of causes underlying racial friction with a view to their removal. It advocates also that "congress be requested through a non-partisan committee to investigate the disturbed and threat ening Inter-racial situation through out the nation." "The root of the matter, It says, "is the failure to recognize the negro as a man. If we propose a democratic program for the protection and silf deterrol nation of the weak and op pressed people of So rope as a means of permanent peace and good will abroad, let os apply the same pro gram at home." A statement by the council prefac ing the program asserts that "the re cent race conflicts in some of our cities is a challenge to the churches charged with the promotion of the brotherhood of man. This calls for preaching the duty of economic and community justice for the negro, thus securing peace and good will between the races.' Resinol heals sick skins "I can't have any fan!
