Jeserich Selected President
Of American Dental Group

Emphasizes Religion

Prof. Paul H. Jeserich, dean of
the dentistry school and director
of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation
Institute, was recently made presi-
dent-elect of the American Dental
Association at its meeting in Dal-
las, Texas.
Officially assuming his presiden-'
tial duties in January, Professor
Jeserich will head the association
during its hundredth year anni-
He has been on the dental
school faculty since 1924, and he
became dean on July 1, 1950.
As director of the Kellogg Foun-;
dation, he has been administra-
tively responsible for the organi-
zation and for development of an
extensive program of graduate
and postgraduate instruction.
Prof. Jeserich also had to co-
ordinate this program, from the
viewpoint of budget and teaching f
personnel, with the undergraduate
teaching program of the dentistry;
Before joining the University
faculty, Prof. Jeserich attended'
the University as a student. He
received his bachelor of arts de-
gree in 1923 and doctor of dental
surgery in 1924.
He had been a member of the
Board of Trustees of the Ameri-
can Dental Association for six
years before his election as presi-
dent of the group.
He was first elected to the
board at the Cleveland meeting in
Sept., 1953, and started his second
term at the Atlantic City meeting

Religion should be taught by
state universities on much the
same basis as other academic dis-
ciplines, Herman W. Wornom,
general secretary of the Religious
Education Association, said.
Wornom, addressing the open-
ing session of the National Con-
sultative Conference on Religion
and the State University Sundayj
evening, declared that "Many
state universities either have no
policies for offering religion as an
academic subject for credit.
"Or, where such policies do
exist, they frequently fail to give
full recognition to religion as a
legitimate academic subject," he
said. Wornom has observed this
as a result of personal visits to 20
leading state universities over the
past two years.
State university officials may
shy away from developing strong
curricular programs in religion
due to five factors, Wornor said.
These may be: 1) fear of criticism
by representatives of denomina-
tions; 2) objections by faculties;
3) lack of properly trained in-
structors; 4) lack of funds and 5)
fear of law suits based on the
principle of separation of church
and state.
Four conditions necessary for
any university to conduct a
meaningful dialogue on ultimate
questions" Wornom noted, are:
1) Advocates of differing posi-
tions, who understand and be-
lieve in these positions in terms
of the integrity and wholeness of

their respective systems


2) Some common heritage of re-
ligious knowledge, to serve as the
basis for discussion:
3) Exploration and understand-
ing of theory, limits and validity
of religious thought and
4) Freedom for faculty members
to explore, think about and teach
"the full intellectual dimensions
of various systems of thought."
