observed in an atmosphere closer than ever before to that which its sponsor the National Conference of Chris tians and Jews seeks to promote The new climate is reflected in a series of four pamphlets the NCCJ has issued for Ms years observance Their common title is Platformof Good Will and they present the viewpoints of Catholic Protestant Jew and Eastern Orthodox Though they were written sep arately a thread of similarity runs through all four pamphlets which further points up todays emphasis on conversation and un derstanding noted by Dr Getz The notable achievements in the fight against

Allan Nevins he disagrees with Kennedy but says the at torney generals position is tena ble Continued Nevins Its one of those questions thatwill never be settled The general view of his torians used to be that it war was wrong More recently however historians have taken the opposite view As a result of the Mexican War the United States got the dis puted Texas land as wellas what is now Arizona
