By STEVEN HALLER
)r. Henry P. Van Dusen, Presi-
it of the Union Theological
ninary in New York, spoke Sa-
day about his personal impres-
n on "Asia, Africa and the
urches."
)r. Van Dusen, who has traveled
ensively throughout the world
general and Asia and Africa in
ticular, began by attacking the
reotyped impression of the
ristian missionary as a preach-
going to Africa "to reform the
,then savages."
'his idea deserves to be rele-
ed to the attics of our minds,"
said.
nstead we should think of the
ristian World Mission as simi-
to the Church in America but

with less resources, Dr. Van Du-
sen noted. The typical Christian
mission in these areas is an edu-
cational system, a medical system
and a social services system inte-
grated into one body and trans-
ported abroad.
Christian World Mission
Dr. Van Dusen went on to note
that the Christian World Mission
in Asia and Africa has pioneered
in the relief of such widespread
problems as leprosy. In some parts
of Asia today, there is one doctor
for every million people-and that
one doctor is a Christian mis-
sionary.._
But medicine is not the only
contribution of the Christian
World Mission. For every hospital
in Asia and Africa there are 20

seminary President Explains
1eligions Place in Education

Dr. Henry P. Van Dusen, Presi-
dent of the Union Theological
Seminary in New York, stated
Saturday that the place of religion
in higher education should be two-
fold.
First, all education should have
"an enveloping ;orientation of the
ultimate ground of truth which
is God," Dr. Van Dusen said.
Second, religion should be a sub-
ject of much inquisitiveness. There
should be an "exacting" depart-
ment of religion fully equal to the
other departments in a, univer-
sity.
Furthermore, any university
which does not have such a de-
partment of religion is "an emas-
culated university." Religious in-
struction at the university level
should be offered but not re-
quired.
Dr. Van Dusen added that to
his knowledge the only state that
forbids such religious instruction
is Washington.
Principles of Ecumenicity
Dr. Van Dusen, who is a leader
in the current Ecumenical move-
ment, went on to explain tihe
principles of ecumenicity. The
word itselfris derived fromthe
Greek for "from all the world,"
he explained. In feudal times, the
term "ecumenical" was applied to
conferences of bishops from all
the world.
Recently, however, a new mean-
ing has been ascribed tQ ecumeni-
city, that of "Christian unity."
The Ecumenical Reformation is
just as radical and as influential
as was the Protestant Reforma-
tion, Dr. Van Dusen said.
There are at least 250 different
Council Views

denominations of the Christian
religion, all tragically disunified,
he noted. The object of the Ecu-
menical movement is not neces-
sarily to create one institution
which would be the Protestant
equivalent of the Roman Catholic
Church. However, ideally all of
these denominations should be
closer to one another; they should
be aspects of one Church of
Christ, he explained.
Missionary Movement
The Christian missionary move-
ment facilitated the beginnings
of a plan for world unity among
the denominations of the Chris-
tian Church, Dr. Van Dusen said.
However, the modern Ecumenical
movement actually originated as
the result of a conference which
took place in Edinburgh in 1910.
The Ecumenical movement is
not as steadily obstructed as was
the Protestant Reformation, he
added; but there is still opposition
from sheer tradition and prejudice,
as well as what Dr. Van Dusen
described as "theological lethargy."

schools. In Nigeria, for example,
it seems to the casual observer
that there are only two types of
buildings-native huts and Chris-
tian schools.
Speaking further about the
Christian World Mission, Dr. Van
Dusen said that there is no or-
ganized opposition to it except
from Islam and Buddhist groups
which resent the Mission's intru-
sion into their domains.
Present Situations
The workers of the Christian
World Mission go out under the
auspices of their own denomina-
tions and are paid by them, ex-
cept on a united mission on be-
half of two or more denomina-
tions, which is rather uncommon.
Dr. Van Dusen went on to dis-
cuss the dominant situation in
Asia and Africa today as a result
of the Christian World Mission.
In Asia two impressions imme-
diately stand out, he said. One
is that there has been an un-
mistakable improvement in the
health and happiness of the people
there. The second is that there
has also come about more econom-
ic prosperity, political viability
and hopefulness among the people.
In Africa "the farther north
you go, the brighter the sun
shines," Dr. Van Dusen explained.
Only one generalization can be
made-that nobody can predict
the future of Africa, but it will be
determined "by Africans and Af-
ricans only."
Future Leaders-
In conclusion, Dr. Van Dusen
said that it was questionable
whether the Church today is un-
dergoing a "recession"; but when-
ever such is the case, the churches
that suffer most are those which
are oldest and the most firmly
rooted in tradition.
"Many of the religious leaders
of tomorrow will come from the
youngest Christian churches of
Asia and Africa, and I am con-
vinced that they are not unready
for that role," he commented.
, Dr. Van Dusen's lecture was
sponsored by the Protestant Foun-
dation for International Students.

Learning never stops for engineers at Western Electric

you can't find it

There's no place at Western Electric for engi-
neers who feel that college diplomas signify
the end of their education. However, if a man
can meet our quality standards and feels that
he is really just beginning to learn ... and if he
is ready to launch his career where learning is
an important part of the job and where gradu-
ate-level training on and off the job is encour-
aged - we want and need him.
At Western Electric, in addition to the nor-
mal learning-while-doing, engineers are en-
couraged to move ahead in their fields by sever-
al types of educational programs. Western
maintains its own full-time graduate engineer-
ing training program, seven formal manage-
ment courses, and a tuition refund plan' for
out-of-hours college study.
This learning atmosphere is just one reason

to Western Electric at one of the best times in
the company's history. In the management
area alone, several thousand supervisory jobs
are expected to open up to W.E. people within
the next 10 years. And our work of building
communications equipment and systems be-
comes increasingly challenging and important
as the communications needs of our nation and
the world continue to increase.
Challenging opportunities exist now at Western
Electric for electrical, mechanical, industrial, and chemi-
