In the sanctity of individual
personality lies the foundation and
strength of our national purpose,
Prof. Wesley H. Maurer, chairman
of the journalism department,
said.
Speaking before the 23rd an-
nual Michigan Pastors' conference
Tuesday: he stressed that "the
modern foundation for freedom is
in the sanctity of personality."
"The national purpose is to
bring to full play the benefits of
modern advanced technological in-
dustrial society not only for our
nation, but for the world" through
the means of freedom rather than
through minority control, he said.
Prof. Maurer warned that "the
John Birchers, the race bigots and
the war mongers are not in the
support of national purpose. Their
motives stem from hate, insecurity
and fear."
Prof. Maurer noted that if the
sanctity of personality is to be
served as means as well as ends,
Americans must meet the follow-
ing responsibilities:
1) remove inequities in our so-
ciety;
2) educate all our children;
3) cultivate through our fami-
lies, schools, churches and public
policies a generous disposition to-
ward one another.
