President Johnson
Asks Observance of
`Brotherhood Week'
NEW YORK, (JTA) — Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson issued
a message calling upon all
Americans to join with him in
observing Brotherhood Week,
sponsored by the National Con-
ference of Christians and Jews.
The President has accepted
honorary chairmanship of Bro-
therhood Week, it was announc-
ed by Dr. Lewis Webster Jones,
NCCJ president. The week is to
be observed Feb. 16-23.
"Brotherhood Week 1964 is a
time of deep appraisal for all
Americans," President Johnson
said in his message. "Tragedy is
in our land, and from the dark-
ness of our sorrow ought to
come a new dedication to the
ideals of love and brotherhood.
Democracy cannot live in hate
and fear. Prejudice and bigotry
are the advance guard of failure.
"No better time exists for a
searching of our hearts and
mind than this national observ-
ance of Brotherhood. Let us
hear again the faith of our fore-
bears; let us listen again to the
inspired hopes of our national
conscience; let us obey again
the word of our religions.
"In this time, still heavy with
sadness, I urge all my fellow
Americans to join with me and
the National Conference of
Christians and Jews in this na-
tional celebration of tolerance,
truth and charity toward our
neighbors, wherever they live,
whoever they are."
