    President of Motion Picture Association Eric Johnston at Conference of Christians and Jews - Washington DC, United States of America. (American commentary.)

    Guests sitting at round tables at the conference applaud. Roger Williams Strauss presents citations for their work on behalf of 'Brotherhood' to Roger Patterson and John L Sullivan. (Conference is to plan 'Brotherhood Week'.)

    M/Ss of General Chairman Eric Johnston making speech (natural sound). He says that brotherhood, to him, doesn't mean he should make an exhibition of his tolerance. He says it means being decent to normal, decent human beings, irrespective of the way they part their hair or the colour of their skin or national origin. He says "Brotherhood means treating a man for what he is worth inside, whether he is your business partner or whether he is a friend or whether he is an acquaintance".

    Shot of audience applauding. People on platform rise to congratulate Johnston.

    First section of this newsreel item seems to be missing. According to paperwork it showed Nelson Rockefeller receiving citation.
