Since 1928, when the general
conference of the church took its
official stand, the Methodist church
has favored optional military
training and has asked that all
Methodist students conscientiously
objecting to the course be exempt
ed. This stand was again taken at
the third national conference of
Methodist Youth, which 14 local
students attended, meeting on the
University of Colorado campus
last summer.
One student in a California
school carried his case to the
United States supreme court, and,
while the court’s decision was
against him, Methodist churches
throughout the country united in
his support.
The local group was active in
the attempt to make military
training optional in the state which
was voted down by a count of 214,
246 to 131,917 in 1936.
