A memorandum issued
by the JCRB said : "More-
over, a disproportionate
number of former IHP (In-
tegrated Humanities Pro-
gram) students are now in
the Benedictine monastery
at Fontgombault, France."
David Goldstein, JCRB ex-
ecutive director, said that it
is "generally con-
ceded...that in the Abby,
there are none (former
IHP) students" of whom
three are believed to be
Jewish. Goldstein said he is

came known when they re-
turned home to visit their
parents.
According to the JCRB
memo titled, "A Warning
About the Integrated Hu-
manities Program at the
University of Kansas,"
which was sent as an alert
to various Jewish commu-
nities, "The Catalogue (ex-
plaining the course) does
not discuss the student trips
to this monastery organized
by the HIP faculty, or the
1976 student trip to a re-
mote island in western Ire-
land where instruction in
Roman Catholicism, using
a Roman Catholic cate-
chism, was given."
According to the JCRB,
the program at the state
school in Lawrence, Kan.,
is described by the cata-
logue as a freshmen-soph-
omore program "devoted
to an introductory study of
great philosophical, histori-
cal and literary books of
Western Civilization from
Homer to Dostoyevski."'
The program consists of
four six-credit-hour courses
taught by Professors
Dennis Quinn, Franklyn Nel-
ick, and John Senior.
The memo adds: "While
the IHP faculty deny they
are 'brainwashing', it
seems evident to many ob-
servers that the great books
are used to introduce young
students to only one point
of view, that of medieval
Roman Catholicism...All
published reports agree
that contrary views are not
aired in the IHP classes.
"Memorization is
stressed, but not dialogue
and analysis. The Bible is
read, but without scholarly
methods of study. Students
are not permitted to take
notes in class or to ask ques-
tions. They are told not to
read even the footnotes and
commentaries in the edi-
tions of the books they use.
They are warned against
television, radio, news-
papers, magazines and
drama."
According to Goldstein,
students sometimes have
lunch at professors' homes,
which, he said, in and of it-
self, would be a construe-
five activity. But Goldstein
alleged that an atmosphere
encouraging conversion to
Catholicism exists at the
lunches.
Furthermore, he said, stu-
dents and professors some-
times go to mass together,
"presumably to help them
in their Latin (ecclesiastic-
al Latin, not classical)".
And although the trip to Ire-
land was "presumably a
voluntary activity," Gold-
stein asserted that there
was "a lot of pressure to
take it."
According to Goldstein,
about 300 students were in
the IHP last year Wilson
said"...at its height, 100 stu-
dents out of 20,000 students
at the school," were taking
the course.
An interfaith committee
called "The Committee for
Academic and Religious
Freedom" has been
formed, Goldstein said,
with its primary goal being
to inform potential students
about the actual program.

Evangelical Christians Plan
Pro-Israel Jerusalem Congress

JERUSALEM—To mark
the 30th anniversary of Is-
rael's statehood, evangeli-
cal Christians will hold an
"International Congress for
the Peace of Jerusalem,"
in Israel's capital, Jan. 31-
Feb. 2, 1978.
Dr. Israel Carmona, steer-
ing committee chairman,
said the purpose of the con-
gress is "to demonstrate
Christian support for the na-
tion of Israel and its right
to exist under a just peace,
to explore objectively Jew-
ish-Christian relations
throughout history so as to
deepen awareness in the
Christian church, and to
present the biblical view of
the role of Israel and the

church in God's plan for the
ages."
The congress will be wel-
comed officially by Jerusa-
lem Mayor Teddy Kollek.
Prominent Christians in Is-
rael will be on the program
and several Christian lead-
ers of national and inter-
national recognition will
speak.
Program organizers hope
the congress will draw con-
cerned Christians for Israel
who want to show their sol-
idarity with- the Jewish
state in a positive way, thus
various tours from the U.S.
to Israel are being organiz
ed for those who want to at
tend the congress.
