PRESIDENT KENNEDY held a get-together with some 250 Church leaders last week in the White House to form a nationwide inter-faith committee for an attack against racial prejudice.
Nine archbishops. 15 bishops and seven priests were among those present.
The newly formed inter-faith Committee is to concentrate on local level efforts against the seething racial crisis which was sparked off by President Kennedy's civil rights recommendations before Congress.
A large map displayed at the meeting showed some 500 cities in the South where better racial relations were needed. President Kennedy suggested that it might be desirable to have sub-committees for each State, fighting for basic human rights and dealing with specific problems such as employment and welfare.
