President, Detroit Round Table appreciated, how valuable it is,

President Kennedy told a
number of us at a White House
reception for the Board of the
National Conference of Christ-
ians and Jews:
"Gentlemen, I want to ex-
press my great pleasure at hav-
ing you here today at the White

and what a service you are
rendering. Thank you."
America is made up of groups
differing in cultural, economic,
ethnic and religious back-
grounds. This situation can lead
to bitterness and conflict, as it
often has, or it can lead to
strengthening and enriching our
society, as we of the Detroit
Round Table believe it can.

It will if we, during
Brotherhood Week and at all
other times, examine our own
attitudes toward those who
differ from us.


House. I think your efforts in
this field represent a very val-
uable service to our country.
"We have every reason to
believe that our various religi-
ous denominations should live
together in the closest harmony.

"We should set a happy
model for the world, but like
all things, these things can-
not be taken for granted. Your
efforts, really, over the
period of 30 years

Throughout the year, the De-
troit Round Table is bringing
about increasing understanding
among groups that differ; it is
bringing about cooperation
among these groups on common
problems; it is helping parents,
teachers, policemen, and other
community leaders to replace
bigotry and prejudice with good
We call upon all people in
this Brotherhood Week to re-
affirm a strong stand for good
will and to act in every possible
situation that we may have

and dislikes; we have prejudices.
We need to take a hard look at
these prejudices. Are they hurt-
ing others? And, what is often
overlooked, are they hurting the
one who is prejudiced?
In our democracy, we are
committed to cultural pluralism.
We have the privilege of hold-
ing views in many areas which
may not conform to the majority
opinion. In the field of religion,
we may worship as we please.
We must, however, grant to all
others the same privilege. This
is democracy. This is brother-

Executive Director,
Detroit Round Table

Brotherhood Week is a time
for rededication to the princ-
iples of living together which
we believe should be practiced
throughout the year.
Independence D a y reminds
us of our patriotic obligations;
religious holidays inspire us
anew to moral and spiritual
ideals. So we attempt in Brother-
hood Week to take a good look
at our society, our city and our
community. Above all we try
to see ourselves.
All of us have preferences

We, the officers and directors

of Public Bank, congratulate

you and extend our best wishes

for continued progress in the

field of human relations.

Helps us protect our most sacred posses-
sions the future of our children, the
liberties of all faiths and races who make
up this great community of Americans.
The ideal of true Brotherhood was given
birth by the Hebrew Prophet Malachi, who
challenged all who may balk at the prin-
ciple of good will at justice when he said:
"Have we not one father? Has not one God
created us?"
