NEWS SERVICE OF THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION 460 JAMES ROBERTSON PARKWAY, NASHVILLE. TENNESSEE 244-2355

May 6, 1964 44 South Carolinians Oppose Open Colleges By Douglas P. Blackwell COLUMBIA, S. C. (BP)--Forty-four of 53 Baptist ministers and laymen who aired their viewl.l at a Baptist Conference on Race Relations here opposed integration of Baptist institutions. Of the 44 who opposed integration, 13 attributed civil rights drives to Communist inspiration either in whole or in part, five referred to "mongrelization" of the race s , eight called segregation the will of God, and two forecast lowered academic standards if Baptist schools integrated. Several asked why churchmen who approve integration of Baptist churches and Instttuttona in the state did not voice their approval of integration and their disapproval of segregation before the 1954 U. S. Supreme Court decision of public school integration. One attributed the desire for integration among church members to "alien Baptist" Influence-rministers who were natives of states other than South Carolina. And two others said Baptist publications are endeavoring to "brainwash" church members of the state. The Conference on Race Relations was arranged by the committee on Christian life and public affairs, a committee of the South Carolina Baptist Convention. It met as called for by an action of the convention's annual session last fall. The South Carolina convention I s action followed a prolonged debate on Furman University' ~ proposal to register all qualified students, regardless of race. The move to desegregate Furman was put off one year pending a study of integration facing all the stete' s Baptist schools, of which Furman is largest and best known. _ The Christian life and public affairs committee was not instructed to bring any report or recommendation. However, itls likely the committee will report events of the day-long cant renee to the 1964 convention session. About 900 persons were present during the conference's morning session here. That evening, only about 50 remained. They came only as individuals to express their personal feelings. The conference was not a meeting of the convention. There will be no more hearings of this type since the convention voted to set aside only one day for such a conference. The meeting and the opinions expressed do not necessarily have any effect on whether Furman University or others integrate. Nine ventured opinions that were not pro-segregation. Eight took stands for integration or said "since it's coming, let's make the best of it." The ninth said he didn't know what was right. He said he came to the conference hoping to find a solution to the problem. The conference moderator, J. K. Lawton, pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, Florence, urqed participants "to share our views in a Christian attitude. " James A. Rogers, editor of the Florence Morning News, then stated the reason for the conference. George A. Jones, pastor, Beaufort First Baptist Church, said the question is not integration or segregation but evangelization. This obligation and privilege rests squarely on the largest missionary society in South Carolina, the South Carolina Baptist Convention, he said. -rnore-
May 6, 1964
Lancaster, pastor I Orangeburg First Baptist Church, selected because his church is in a "difficult area, " told the conference, "The Christian whites whom I have known are neither bigots nor racists. They see the necessity for communication, but are frustrated in the attempts to achieve it, since communication often means acquresence. V\' •
"I know of no earnest white Christian who desires to hold the Neqroto a 'second dle ss citizenship. However, the white Christian is realistic enough to see that a Negro world does exist. .. a world with its own classes and castes and rent with its own peculiar conflicts, " he said. "The white Chrisitan is not bigoted when he says that a free society was not meant to be pressed like pig iron into moulds and is frankly tired of the constant aborted effort to reduce all people to one common denominator." James A. Bowers, a Greenwood pastor, outlined what the communities in South Carolina are doing. He emphasized the progress made in many communities following free discussions between biracial groups. A missionary to Nigeria, Jamesvv. H. Richardson, told the conference if the doors of missionary opportunity are to remain open in Asia and Africa there must be a convincing demonstration that Christianity is in no exclusive sense the religion of the white people. The speakers, most of whom were not selected in advance, covered the full field of race relations, biblical interpretation I education, missions and evangelism, and community relations. "Integrating Furman University will lower the standards of this university. Baptists of South Carolina have worked too hard and too long to build Furman to see it destroyed. If alien Baptists from out of state want to integrate the school, let them go back to their own states, II Roy Talbert I Lynchburg, declared. "V~ hy
not move forward in Christian education? ... Vve need to train Negro leaders to go to their own people to lead them in evangelism and Christian growth. Vv here would they be better" :: tratned ? Vii hy is rt that qualified students can go LQ Furman fromacme foreign" country, but one ofourown ctttzenscennct ?" David Wells, Hartsville, asked. "We cannot take the situation in Africa and make it apply to the United States. Vve cannot take the situation in North Carolina and make it apply in South Carolina, II T. L. Smith, Florence, argued. "There are two Baptist bodies in South Carolina of nearly equal membership. There must be closer cooperation. Each area of the state should begin freely and voluntarily to set up schools for Negro ministers .•.. Vve need a man to coordinate projects such as this, II Charles Arrinqton , Clemson pastor, said.

April SBC Income Tops Comparison Months NASHVILLE (BP)--A financial statement from the treasurer of the Southern Baptist Convention shows April income for the SBC through the Cooperative Program went above income for two comparative months. Treasurer Porter Routh of Nashville reported the 28 cooperating state Baptist conventions sent in $1,684,523 through the Cooperative Program. This topped the March receipts of $1,597,154 and those of April, 1963 which were $1,520,310. The April receipts brought Cooperative Program total for 1964 to date to $6,878,211. This is 10~1 per cent over the figure of $6,247,062 for the first four months of 1963. At the end of the first quarter (through March), Cooperative Program funds for SBC agencie& were running 9.88 per cent ahead of the previous year. This meant that during April, they advanced even further ahead. Designations for April amounted to $2,082,262 bringing the year to date to $12,076,933 against $11,224,962 for the first four months of 1963. This ia a gain of only 7.59 per cens. Only six states trail 1963 in comparing Cooperative Program funds forwarded for the year to date. Five of the states are pioneer states, that is, they serve areas where Southern Baptist work is young. Disbursements for the year to date include $14.6 million to the Foreign Mts ston Board. The Foreign Mission Board got $1.3 million in April through designations, as Lottie Moon Christmas Offering money continued to come in. The Home l\!1ission Board this year so far has received $2,145,888 including $778,787 in April by designations, reflecting partially a special offering for home missions. The six SBC seminaries have, combined, received about $1.5 million thus far in 1964. The SBC treasurer's report does not include total church collections nor the amount of Cooperative Program or designated funds used in the state conventions. -30-
