FUR Plan Bible Translation Problems

The difference will be paid by
profits from the resale of con-
demned properties. the city also
has the possibility of bringing
their share of costs to about $200,-
000 through some road construc-
tion in the area.
The most important problem
now facing the Council, Mayor
Eldersveld said, is that of arriving
at a good solution to the reloca-
tion problem.
The people who are displaced,
he said, must be provided with
safe, sanitary housing which is
within their income (i.e., not
costing more than 25 per cent of
their income.)
Assumes Responsibility
After the decision to file the
application the Council passed a
resolution saying, in effect, that
the complete and final responsi-
bility for seeing that all displaced,
persons receive safe, adequate
housing lies with the Council.
Much of the dissent during the
public hearing was over the ques-
tion of relocating displaced fami-
lies and exactly who would be dis-
George Wiedemier, a former
member of the Human Relations
Commission, objected to the proj-
ect on the grounds it was not
needed, it was not wanted, the
area was not blighted to begin
with, it destroyed initiative for
the residents to improve their own
homes and it hurts business.
'Wants Urban Renewal'
Mrs. Willa Yates, a resident of
the area, said 'I live next to a
junkyard and, needless to say, we
want Urban Renewal. We (Ne-
groes) are tired of being suspect-
ed, neglected and rejected. If we
had Urban Renewal where I was
born, I'd be better off today."
"I live in one of the condemned
shacks," Mrs. Emmy Jones said,
"and I want Urban Renewal."
The vote on the resolution to
file an application came at about
12:15 a.m. today.
The entire meeting was broad-
cast live on WUOM, the Univer-
sity's broadcasting service.

has not taken advantage of this

The FUB should have been

he continued, with films of the two'
universities and their countries
traded and shown on each campus.
More can be gained from a con-
tinuing exchange program which
becomes traditional than a one-'

Cites Advantages
He cited campus interest in go-
ing to Germany, and the large
number of students taking German
as advantages to the FUB ex-
change over a suggested one with
the American University of Beirut.
Miss Holland, on the other hand,
said the exchange with Lebanon
seemed to her more valuable de-
spite the advantages cited by
Krohn and the fact that two could
be sent to the PUB for the cost of
sending one to Beirut.
Lebanon is a critical area, she
argued, where public opinion re-

Other Versions
In 1611, the authorized King
James version was published:
British and American revisions of
.his edition appeared as late as
the 19th century, Prof. Speiser
He remarked that the King
James version "cannot suffice" for
readers of the 20th century, be-
cause it represented the status of
knowledge about the Bible and
its peoples 300 years ago.
Because the Bible contains lit-
erary, historical and cultural in-
formation as well as religious in-
formation, the older versions of
the Bible are not enough for pres-
ent-day readers, he continued.
Another objection to the older
version of the Bible is the change
in the English language itself,
which renders obscure many ex-
pressions in the classic Bible to
present-day readers.
Prof. Speiser cited the "contro-
versial" Revised Standard Version,
of the Bible, which was offered
to the public in 1952, as the an-
swer to this demand for a trans-
lation suited to the modern world.
