The future of Wayne State Uni-
versity's annual Religion in Life,
Week rests with President Clar-
ence B. Hillberry.
In protest against the annual
Campus Conference on Religion,,
Prof. Alfred H. Kelly, chairman
of the history department, re-
cently moved before WSU's Uni-
versity Council that the Council
express itself "in principal op-
posed to classroom appearances of
representatives of churches and
other religious establishments for
the purpose of expounding reli-
gious doctrine."
Religion in Life Week began
four years ago with the approval
of the WSU and under the direc-
tion of its office of religious affairs.
Denominations Invited
The various denominations rep-
resented on campus invite speak-
ers to the campus during the1
week. A list of available speakers
is then given to all professors, who
are free to invite any one speaker
to their classes. Students who ob-

ject to hearing a speaker can stay
away.
Prof. Kelly, a nationally recog-
nized expert on the Constitution,,
contended the Conference violates
the First Amendment which calls
for separation of church and
state.
At a later meeting held Dec. 4,
during Religion in Life Week, the
Council passed another resolution
dealing with the Conference, which
also advised against inviting reli-
gious leaders to lecture in class-
rooms.
The Council's statement, how-
ever, stressed that the Campus
Conference on Religion serves a
desirable purpose and should be
fostered. It furthered that the
right of the students to believe or
to reject must be recognized.
Resolution Presented
Another resolution for Hilberry
to consider was drawn up by
the Student-Faculty Council (S-
FC). It asserted that "... religious
speakers, or for that matter speak-
ers of any sort, may be invited to
any class by the. instructor at his
disgression . . . for the purpose of
enlightenment and education .,.
the material being presented be-
ing subject to the same critical ap-
praisal as other materials in the
course."
The S - PC resolution further
stressed that it should not be con-
strued to ". . . express S-FC's ap-
proval of such appearances by
representatives or, churches . .
and other groups, both secular and
religious, for the purpose of in-
doctrination or propaganda.
University Council President
Winfred Harbison expressed the
probability that Hilberry will
approve the excluding of religious
speakers from classrooms except
those whose subject matter is con-
cerned with religion in a literary
or historical context.

"COSI FAN TUTTE"-Members of the Speech and Music departments will continue with their
presentation of Mozart's comic opera tonight and tomorrow. Tickets are still available for the
production. The story, as commissioned by Emperor Joseph II, concerns two army officers who are
confronted with the remark of a cynical friend that all women are alike. Deciding to prove this
false, the two disguise themselves, each making love to the other's fiance, with complete success.
COLLEGE NEWS ROUNDUP:
Illinois Coeds Stage Food Strike

Law Staff
Approves
Revisions
The faculty of the law school
recently adopted the changes in
counseling suggested by the Aca-
demic Committee of the Student
Bar Association.
In former years there was no
organized counseling system. The
committee felt this acted as a
deterrent to adequate counseling
because students often hesitated
to confide in professors from
whom they took courses.
In the new plan, which is effec-
tive immediately, every freshman
entering Law School is assigned to
an adviser. It is expected that the
classes of 1960 and '61 will receive
their assignments before the
Christmas vacation.
The committee listed four ad-
vantages in the newly devised
plan. They are: 1) Each partici-
pating teacher has volunteered to
act as an adviser and is interested
in the program; 2) The student
will have the same adviser for his
entire law school career; 3) Con-
sultation with the advised is not
compulsory; 4) The student is still
free to seek advice from any other
faculty member.
The report concludes, "Because
the new program is entirely op-
tional, each student will receive
only as, much from the program
as he wishes."
Caroling Party
Set by League
A Christmas caroling party will
be held at 9 p.m. Thursday on the
Diagonal.
Prof. Philip A. Duey will con-
duct the Men's Glee Club of The
Friars. An octet from the- Michi-
gan Marching Band will also per-
form.
Both the Glee Club and the
Friars will lead the singing of the
students that come to the caroling
party. Also, each of the groups wil
perform separately.
The singing is sponsored by the
League's Special Projects Com-
mittee, according to Sandra
Weiss, '60, chairman.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill - Protesting
the way in which their food is;
prepared, more than 500 dormi-
tory residents at the University of
Illinois recently staged a hunger
strike.
The coeds took their places at
tables in the residence hall din-.
ing rooms but refused to eat when.
the meal was served. Not all resi-
dents felt the same about the food
as the instigators of the demon-
stration. Estimates of those who
ate their dinner ranged to about
one-quarter of the residents. In
fact many of the coeds rejected
the main course, but decided to
eat when dessert was served.
Weight conscious residents have
objected to having potatoes every
night. The demonstration followed
by about three weeks the hanging
in effigy of Mrs. Elizabeth Lam-
bert, food production manager of
the men's residence halls in sup-
port of similar complaints voiced
by the men.
COLUMBUS,m 0 - Five fresh-
men were dismissed from Ohio
State University recently for haul-
ing an embalmed body to the uni-
versity from a nearby town.
Executive Dean William S.
Guthrie said he had to consider
the university's reputation as it
was represented by the students.
By their admitted activity, in
transporting the body, they
brought discredit to Ohio State,
he added.

MINNEAPOLIS -A proposal to'
modify the University of Minne-
sota's policy to allow campus or-
ganizations to discriminate on a
religious basis was not approved
by the Inter-Fraternity Council
recently.
The proposal, included in a let-.
ter to the Council from the uni-
versity's Senate Committee on
Student Affairs, was turned down
on the grounds that it was "un-
clear." The IFC voted not to take
action on the proposal until it is
clarified.

LOS ANGELES - A homemade
time bomb was found recently un-
der the cheerleaders' platform at
UCLA.
Police said the bomb could have
been placed under the platform at
any time since the stand was
erected in November and could
have killed anyone within 50 feet
if it had exploded.
Police as yet have no leads on
the identity of the would-be killer,
but they surmise he must have
been somewhat mentally unbal-
anced.
ITHACA, N.Y. -The Human
Relations Commission of the Stu-
dent Council at Cornell University
has recently issued a policy state-
ment on discrimination in hous-
ing.
This statement is directed at
those landlords who show bias to-
wards foreign and Negro students.

The Council recommended that
they "change" their policies and
make rooming facilities available
on an equitable basis.

MADISON, Wisc. - This week
students dressed in rubber suits in
eight-degree weather, chopped a
hole through two inches of Lake
Mendota ice to take a swim in
front of Tripp Hall, a men's dor-
mitory, at the University of Wis-
consin.
A hundred feet offshore a rock
shot up from the ice and a hand
waved. The small group on the
bank were shocked. Then a hand
groped around the hole and dis-
appeared into the water.
The students explained they
were practicing using underwater
breathing apparatus, diving and
having fun with the people on
shore.

Con Edison cannot slow up or stand still because New York
City and Westchester are growing at an amazing pace. We
have spent more than a billion dollars since 1946 to keep
ahead of the demand for more electricity, gas and steam.
We will spend $800 million more in the next 5 years because
of the expanding needs of our fast-changing territory.
That means outstanding opportunity for young men with
ability, ideas and ambition.
This is particularly important: Con Edison has 800 top man.
