LOUHrt rnuii ILU
New York. Feb. 5. An outline of
the plan for a merger of approximate
ly 21 evangelical Protestant church
bodies, under the nam of the United
Church of Christ in America, which
is to be acted upon by the Interchurch
Council of Organic Union at a three-
day conference beginning in Phila-
delphla today, was made public nere
today at the headquarter of tlie
Presbyterian church, the originators
of the movement
The plan approved by an ad inter
Ira committee of SO Protestant cler
gymen of various denominations ap
pointed last December, carries a pre
amble declaring faith in God and
other fundamentals of Christian
ity as "a common heritage of the
evangelical churches." It provides (lj
complete autonomy in purely denom
inational affairs; (2) formation of
council, a representative body, meet
ing bleannually, through willed the
united church will act; (3) represen
tation to be on the basis of two min
isters and two laymen for the first
100,000 communicants and two minis
ters and two laymen for each addi
tional 200,000 or major fraction there
of; (4) that constituent churches ex
cept as limited by the plan, "shall
continue the exerciss of their several
powers and functions as the same ex
ists under the denominational con
stitution;" (5) that the council shall
harmonize and unify the work of the
churches, including missionary ac
tivities, evangelism, social sen-ice and
religious education.
It is pointed out that the recommen
dations of the ad Interim committee
are but steps In a movement for creat
ing "a real ecclestlcal entity, with ec
clesiastical powers, holding and ad
ministering ecclesiastical property and
funds of such united church." This
it is said, may require a trying out per
iod. "After the plan shall have been
In operation for a term of years," the
announcement states, "the importance
of divisive names and creeds and meth
ods will pass more and more Into the
dim background of the past, and ac
quire even In the particular denomina
tion Itself, a merely historical value,
and the churches then will be ready
for and will demand a more complete
union."
The form of union advocated, it Is de
clared, "does not interject Into the deli
berations of the council any disputa
tious topic, any question of the valid
ity of orders or of the modes and sub
jects of baptism or of the formulation
of a speclfio or comprehensive creed."
The hope Is expressed that "the evan
gelical churches may give themselves
with a new faith and ardor to the pro.
clamatlon of the gospel, which ig the
only hope of our stricken world, and
to all those ministries of Chriatlan love
and leading for the community, tne
nation and the nations, by which they
shall reveal to men the mind of Christ
and hasten the coming of his Klne-
dum."
Emphasis Is placed by the commit
tee on the "federal union" feature of
the proposed amalgamation. "It is an
organic union," the report says, "that
has the vital principle of growth and
development. The council has definite
functions and duties and these func
tions and duties may from time to
time be developed In like manner as
the functions of our federal govern
ment In the United States may from
time to time, by constitutional amend
ment, be modified or enlarged."
The proposed Constitution of tne
United Church of Amerlna. 1IM rnvlRnil
sets forth the following as It Article
of Faith:

The meeting Monday night was well

strong appeal to the churches to awake

Mahood believes tremendously in the
gospel as the only remedy for modern
social and industrial Ills. He I un-

churches that fail to apply this saving
