Our country today finds itself confronted with a serious race relations problem. It is only one of the many social and economic questions facing us at this time, but, no doubt, every one who has carefully studied the race problem will admit that it is one of major importance and therefore should not be ignored by those whose business it is to study it. As citizens of our country it vitally concerns us all, and it is in view of this fact that the Missionary Board (upon the writer's suggestion) has decided to take up its study as a part of its agenda, especially since it is the duty of the Board to counsel those who are directly concerned with the problem in its practical applications. It is from this point of view that the Missionary Board, I hope, will continue to give the matter its careful attention.
