Man has tried for countless j
centuries to find a substitute for j
Brotherhood and to date he has
not been able to replace the ideal
of goodness and kindliness.
Man has used negative values: ,
wars, atomic and stone age; hate
of all kinds whether from a skid!
row misfit or a would be intel-1
lectual counterpart; greed and
other deadly sins.
And through it all Man has
come to realize that the positive
values are best. That he has to
do unto his Brother as he would
have his Brother do unto him.
He has to learn how to do FOR
his BROTHER. And that’s the
main meaning of Brotherhood. To
do FOR somebody.
In doing for somebody we do
for ourselves. Not only do we give
joy to the one receiving our kind-
ness. We receive a feeling of good-
ness ourselves. That’s simple arith-
metic. That’s why Brotherhood’s
The hatemongers are a tortur-

The history of Russia is inter-

And many other nations can
bear testimony to the final wind-

There is a clean feeling about
goodness. A feeling of Truth and
Beauty. There is the same FEEL-

hand to a less fortunate person.
It is this feeling that we have
to constantly seek, it is this feel-
ing that we have to capture. And
there is no better recipe than

Brotherhood every day of the

Brotherhood W eek
Nation wide observance of Bro-
therhood Week, sponsored by the
National Conference of Christians
and Jews, starts Sunday, Feb. 21,
and continues through the 28th.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower is
honorary chairman of the observ-
Accentuating the theme “Let’s
Get Together,” the week will stress
community good will through home
gatherings that will encourage
neighbors to know each other bet-
Special events in more than 10,-
000 communities throughout the
United States will mark Brother-
hood Week. Educational institu-
i tions, religious and civic organi-
zations will participate. Programs
will extend the work of the Na-
tional Conference which stimulates
year-around programs in schools
and colleges, churches and synago-
gues, labor-management and com-
; munity organizations, and in news-
papers, magazines, motion pictures,
■ radio and television.
The purposes of Brotherhood
Week, according to Dr. Everett R.
Clinchy, president of the National
Conference, are to give people an
opportunity to re-dedicate them-
selves as individuals to the ideals
of respect for people and human
rights. “We try to dramatize the
practical things that people can
do to promote an understanding
and realization of those ideals.
Brotherhood Week is essentially a
campaign against the prejudices
and bigotries that disfigure and
j distort religious, business, social
j and political relations.”
i An inventory of the nation’s
moral and spiritual resources for
brotherhood is being undertaken
by the National Conference as
one of its main tasks during the
current year. Brotherhood Week
groups will aid in the survey. The
results of the survey will be event-
ually reported to the President of
the United States.
The big promotion during Bro-
therhood Week, according to Dr.
Clinchy, will be to urge people to
do more than give the principles
of brotherhood mere lip service.
“By getting to know the other fel-
low, the one who has a different
creed, race or national origin than
yours, by understanding his view-
point, his ambitions and goals, you
will find old prejudices disappear.
You’ll find that we are all one
family made strong and great by
the very differences that so many
times divide us as individuals and
groups. You’ll leam to accept or
reject a person strictly on his
merits as a human being and not
because he happens to be differ-
ent from you.”
“We hope that during Brother-
hood Week people will get togeth-
er with people they know, people
they don’t know, and with people
they wish to know, in the inform-
ality of their own homes. By plan-
ning simple discussions about the
meaning of brotherhood, and what
it means in their own lives, they
can contribute to the real spirit of
