A "National Consultative Con-
ference on Religion and the State
University," climaxing the cen-
tennial of student religious work
on the University campus, will be-'
gin this Sunday afternoon with
a reception at the home of Uni-
versity President and Mrs. Harlan
The purpose of this conference
is to provide an opportunity for
a full discussion of religion and
the state university by those re-
sponsible at all levels for policy
and program, curriculum and
Participants in the conference
will include members of govern-
ing boards, University administra-
tors, personnel workers, faculty
concerned with religion in the
curriculum, chaplains and reli-
gious advisors and representatives
of national educational and re-
ligious organizations.
First Conference Held
This conference, which is the
first of its kind, has come about
largely as a result of the historic
recognition of the growing need
for increased religious emphasis
on the campuses.
More students and citizens of
the community at large have come
to accept religion as a "legitimate
part of life," DeWitt Baldwin, co-
ordinator of religious affairs for
the University, said.
In the past ,he said, many Uni-
versity administrators were afraid
to organize religious activities on
their campuses due to state laws.
Now they are recognizing, how-
ever, that it is the place of state
universities to support all re-
ligions and to encourage students
to participate in the activities of
their faith.
Need 'Wholesome Life'
"Students can't just set aside
their religion for four years,"
Baldwin noted, but must continue
their -religious participation while
in college in order to have a
"wholesome" life.
Working in coperation with the
University on this conference is
the National Conference of Chris-
tians and Jews whose Commission
on Religious Organizations has
shown deep concern about this
since 1951.
The four-day conference, whose

meetings will be held in the Mich-
igan Union ballroom unless other-
wise stated, will open 8 p.m. Sun-
day with addresses by James A.
Lewis. University Vice-President
of Student Affairs and Dumont
Kenny, program chairman of the
National Conference of Christians
and Jews.
Wornom to Speak
Herman E. Wornom, general
secretary of the Religious Educa-
tion Association will speak on
"Critical Issues of Religion and
Higher Education."
At 9 a.m. Monday. a discussion
symposium on campus personnel
services will be chairmanned by
William S. Guthrie, executive
Dean of Student 'Relations at
Ohio State University.
This will be followed by discus-
sion group meetings, luncheon
meetings, and another symposium
at 2 p.m. on the "Teaching of Re-
ligion," chairmanned by Prof.
William Frankena, chairman of
the philosophy department.

Six members of Alpha Lambda
Delta, freshman women's honor-
ary, are doing volunteer work at
the undergraduate library, Ro-
berta C. Keniston, librarian, said
The women, who work two
hours every other week, trim and
file book jackets, check the circu-
lation file and help tabulate
"dead" circulation slips saved by
the library to study the use of
books borrowed from the library.
Currently, the volunteers are
sticking gummed yellow dots on
bound periodicals to facilitate
easy shelving, The group will
probably begin work with the rec-
ord collections in the audio-visual
room soon, Mrs. Keniston said.,
Originally the idea for the vol-

unteer program came from Dean
of Women Deborah Bacon, who
asked Mrs. Keniston if Alpha
Lambda Delta could earn funds
for a scholarship by working
part-time in the undergraduate
Due to the cut in the budget,
this was impossible so the sorority
decided to do the work voluntarily
as a service to the rest of the stu-
dent body.
Those participating in the pro-
gram, which will continue through
the semester at least, according
to Mrs. Keniston, are Linda Kan-
ner, '61, Jean Hartwig, '61,
Emmagene Reisig, '61, Marsha
Schlachter, '61Ph., Sharon Mail,
'61N, and Mary Hodge, '61.
