I have found some of the press cuttings, and they do indeed seem to refer to the rules of the organisation rather than the laws of California. I have tried to download these cuttings here, but I keep getting an error report. If anyone wishes to see these cuttings they could e-mail me and I will send them.

The marriage seems to have taken place in New Mexico which may suggest there were problems with California laws, but this is not clear. They also show that Nerode was trying to sue Yogananda for $500,000 and that Nerode seems to have looked upon the movement as a business rather than a spiritual venture. It may be that Yogananda gave the interracial marriage as the reason for Nerodes departure as it was kinder than giving the real reasons. I have not been able to establish the real reasons for Nerodes split with Yogananda, and virtually all the information comes from Nerode's son who may not be entirely impartial. SRF seems to have a policy of silence on the issue, and seems to have simply written Nerode out of the history of the organisation.
