SQumran Scrolls Confirm
View of Early Christianity

Pledges Prepare Fresh Air Camp

A view of early Christianity, "fas
a high pitched eschatology, gain-
ing strength from the downfall
of the world," has been verified
and illuminated by the Dead Sea
Scrolls, the Rev. Dr. Krister Sten-
dahl said yesterday.
In his lecture on "The Dead Sea
Scrolls and Their Influence on
? New Testament Studies" Dr.
Stendahl pointed out that the his-
torical impact of the scrolls is due
mainly to the opportunity which
thy present to compare early
Christianity to the Qumran sect.
The Qumran community, which
was a Jewish sect deviating from
the Talmudic Law which eschewed
the eschatological or "end of the
. world" note in religion, fits very
closely with this idea of early
Gives Information
The Qumran Scrolls give in-
formation which shows quite
clearly that the community was a
sect, Dr. Stendahl noted. It is very
t clear in the scrolls," he said, "that
a membership in the sect meant

ference between the Qumran and
the Christians.
It was not until the Dead Sea
Scrolls were discovered and placed
alongside the other inter-testa-
mental documents that the simi-
larity and differences between the
two became clear, Dr. Stendahl
pointed out.-
This theory of early Christi-
anity, he said, has come out of
a new trend in Bibli cal re-
search best represented by Albert
Schweitzer, "The Quest for the
Historical Jesus."
"This book set forth an appall-
ing picture of Jesus' ministry," he
noted, "Schweitzer concluded that
Jesus was an eschatologically con-
ditioned prophet."

This book came out of a study
of inter-testament documents
which had been ignored by the
Victorian scholars, he said. Before
this time the only sources of re-
search on the new testament had
been the old testament, and the
Classical Greek culture.
"One ironic insight into the
basis of the new Biblical theories,
is that they came after the col-
lapse of classic languages in the
Western World," he added.
This collapse has caused schol-
are to look beyond Plato and Aris-
totle for sources of new testament
influences, he said.
Dr. Stendahl is professor of New
Testament Studies in the Har-
vard Divinity School.

College Roundup

Destination: Fresh Air Camp.
Departure:1 p.m. every day
today through Friday from the
Michigan Union.
Sorority and fraternity pledges
have begun cleaning and prepar-
ing the University's summer camp
for underprivileged children. This
is the annual project of the Junior
Panhellenic Association and Jun-
ior Interfraternity Council.
Hears Plans
(Continued from Page 1)
To function as a liaison between
the administration, faculty, stu-
dent body and fraternities, the
Board would include the Vice-
President for Student Affairs as
chairman, the Dean of Men, a fac-
ulty representative, the highest-
ranking male member of Student
Government Council, the faculty
member of the Interfraternity
Council Executive Committee, IFC
president, two district representa-
tives from the fraternity system
and the chairman of the Alumni
Interfraternity Conference.
A similar Board was presented
on behalf of the Ann Arbor City
Panhellenic Association by Mrs.
Stuart M. Gould, Jr., president. It
would have essentially the same
functions in regard to sororities
as the former plans for fraterni-
ties. The members would be three
affiliated students, three affiliated
alumnae, three affiliated faculty
and ex-officio representatives of
the Deans of Men and Women and
the Vice-President for Student
Mary Wellman, '60, president of
Panhellenic Association, also pro-
posed a similar board consisting
of Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs as chairman, Dean of Wom-
en, a faculty member, SGC presi-
dent, Panhel president and an
alumnae member appointed by the
financial advisors.

Leaving by bus each day for the
camp located 30 miles north of
Ann Arbor, the pledges are as-
signed upon arrival to groups led
by a pledge trainer of the frater-
nities or sororities and composed
of both men and women. "We
have 450 students signed up
through their pledge classes,"
Stuart Dow, '62, co-chairman of
the Publicity Committee, said.
Jobs range from painting build-
ings to washing windows to gen-
eral policing of the area. After
the work is done cokes, potato
chips and ice cream are served.
The pledges return to the Uni-
versity at approximately 6 p.m.
Money to finance the repairs
and work done was raised in the
Bucket Drive held last fall. At this
time $700 was raised. The money
not used for Help Week is given
to the camp officials for the
camp's use.
Children attending the camp
are referred to it by social agen-
cies. They are mentally retarded

an anticipatory membership In
the age to come."
And if this were not enough of
an eschatological note, the major
religious function consisted of a
ceremony "designated as the Mes-
sianic banquet," he added.
It is this idea of active parti-
cipation in the "age to come,"
which comes closest to the ideas
of the early Christian church.
In the early church, Dr. Sten-'
dahl continued, a much higher de-
gree of anticipation existed than
in the Qumran. They claimed that
"due to the resurrection, ascen-
sion, and receiving of the holy
spirit, they were a good bit ahead
on the road to the age to come,"
he noted.
Early Church Progresses
This claim to additional prog-
ress on the part of the early
church was the basis of the def-

MADISON - Students' opinion
and the athletic board at the
University of Wisconsin appear to
differ on the desirability of par-
ticipation in the post-football sea-
son Rose Bowl game.
More than two-thirds of stu-
dents polled by student senators
this week favor participation in
the Rose Bowl. Wisconsin is the
last of the Big Ten universities to
determine its stand on renewal of
the bowl pact. If this faculty ap-
proves the bowl, it will have six to
four approval from the ten insti-
tutions. If Wisconsin disapproves
the bowl, the resulting Big Ten tie
will kill the pact.
