DECEMBER 21, 1946 The Hartford Chronicle MAN TO MAN By Dick Stimson POPULAR NEW HAVEN CHOIR CHURCHES The First December 25 Notices were published in every country that all persons must register in the appropriate cities Following these orders a young Jewish couple traveled to the city where they were re quired to register. Since the hotels were filled and there was no other place to go, they went into a barn. The young woman was pregnant when they made the trip, and during the time they were in the barn she gave birth to a son. She placed the baby gent ly in the straw of a feeding trough in the barn. The night was clear, and high in the sky one star shone much brighter than all the rest. Ac cording to the ancient story two groups of men were at tracted by the brilliant star. An a naaivlin Villi tVlOfO 'PTA some ' sheep herders watching their flock in the night. They were so' fascinated by the star that they began walking to ward it. Meanwhile, three great phi losophers came from a foreign country to the capital city to ask the king where this amaz ing baby was born. The king, having been told that the baby was to become the new king over his people, called all the religious leaders together and asked them where the baby was. They gave him the name of the city and he sent the three great men to find him. The sheep herders and the great men came to the barn, which was in Bethlehem, and under the shining Star of the East they found the young Jewish couple, Joseph and Mary, with the baby Jesus, whom they worshipped. Joseph was warned that the king, Herod,, was jealous and would try to kill the baby Je sus. They traveled, then, as 3 refugees into Egypt and re mained there until Herod had died. The details of this story are to be found in the New Testa ment of the Bible (Matthew 1 and 2; Luke 2:1-20). The baby who was born that s n -r 1 QA TTAona o nrA A ah aim1 from city to city, teaching and gathering many followers. He performed many miracles which attracted crowds to him every where. But the greatest mira cle was his teaching of humility. Jesus Christ taught that true greatness comes not from pride, but from serving others. To il lustrate this truth, He Himself washed and dried the feet of his twelve followers, saying to them, "Let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves." The teachings of Jesus Christ were based on the ancient truths that the Jews had re ceived from Moses. Chief among these were the Ten Command ments, which are still the basis of our laws.

HOUSING PREJUDICE HAS ROOTS New York The other day a picket line appeared before 14 Wall Street in New York City, to the utter amazement of hun dreds of passers-by. The line was not composed of people who work at 14 "Wall Street, but individuals who had learned that some of the dire experi ences of many poor people all over New York, were generated from this secluded financial spot. The picket line was protest ing the invidious influence that the Mortgage Conference of Greater New York exercises in preparing and publishing cur rently maps of New York indi cating where Negroes and Span ish speaking people live; the fact that they advise against mortgages orxloans for such areas and discourage owners of real estate in areas where these two groups do not live, from accepting them. The company operates thru the Savings Banks Trust Co. of New York. The chief sponsors of thsi development are the Aetna Life Insurance Co., Bank ers Trust Co., Bank of Savings, Bronx Savings Bank, etc. Thus it would seem that the roots of prejudice in the hous ing field are imbedded far deep er than the attitude of the or dinary tenant and his dislikes. marized all these command ments for us in two : " You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind," and "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

Mays, President of Atlanta Univer sity's Morehouse College said, "I would tremble for the Chris tian ause if 50 Negroes were to enter the average local church (white) in this country on a Sunday morning and ask to become members. Funda mentally we are afraid to prac tice the Christian religion". Those words not only reflect Dr. Mays justified opinion but represent the state of the Chris tain religion in the United States. Two weeks ago Georgia Baptist Convention adopted a resolution calling for the Chris tian people of Georgia to speak forth against so called patriotic groups which claim racial su periority . . . that no man shall be discriminated against be cause of race, color or creed." A North Carolina Baptist Con vention adopted a resolution calling fgr an end of segrega tion in Churches. No sooner I had the resolution .been adopted before the convention was flood ed with protests. Note: The Convention took it all back. Christianity preaches the broth erhood of man, and rightly so. Yet the Church is the most completely segregated institu tion in the United States. As Negroes we have not offered much criticism to this state of affairs, more or less because there has been a plentiful sup ply of Negro Churches. "We have kicked about segregated schools, movies, fun houses, etc., because those have not .been plentiful among us. I wonder if he had plenty of everything, whether the Negro would cut himself off from the rest of society and make no effort to associate himself with the larger group. Established 1922 Chas.
