WORLD OUTLOOK "WE HOPE THE METHODIST BOARD OF MISSIONS WILL TAKE ITS MONEY OUT … LET US HOPE IT WILL NOT EVADE THE ISSUE…."
Picket outside an executive committee meeting of the Methodist Board of Missions at the Interchurch Center where the Board was meeting by students from Union Theological Seminary and the University Christian Movement. The pickets were part of a campaign to get the Methodist Board of Missions to remove a $10 million investment portfolio from First National City Bank if it renewed it involvement in a consortium loan to the South African government.
