|Item Description||The "Report of the Education Committee of the South Dakota Council for Religious Education" written by Roy Long, was presented to the 1938 State Council of Religious Education by Reverend Victor Wik (Mr. Long was not able to attend). Before beginning his two part report Long lists the members of the committee with whom he had counseled with throughout the year while working on this report. The first portion of the report relates to the "foundation to action" which was established through a series of three meetings. Each meeting is reviewed before discussion of the second half begins. This portion presents a new multi part program. Long first proposes the establishment of five or six "Interdenominational Schools of Christian Living" around the state. These would follow the "Kansas City School Plan" bringing local churches and schools closer together. The second point is focused on promotion and guidance to the "Daily Vacation Work" throughout the various member denominations. The third part is also based on promotion, however focused on "Week Day Religious Instruction within the Public and High Schools." The fourth point is not focused on education, rather Long wants a renewed effort to enact liquor laws and curb the traffic of liquor in the state. The final point centers on better backing for "Youth Work and Unity" throughout the state by creating a definitive supporting program.|
