SGC Discusses Bicycle Impounding

Prof. Seaver Explains Schweitzer's Ideas

adequate parking racks and light-

Phil Zook, '60, administrative
vice-president, said he favored the
University's action because the
bikes were a hazard to general
student traffic and would be espe-
cially dangerous in case of fire.
The need for a study of the
situation was expressed by Al
Haber, '60. He questioned whether
the $3.50 charge for illegal park-

ing was the actual cost of im-
pounding and storage or whether
this figure included a fine.
Boren Chertkov, '60, Inter-
House Council president, stated
that the University's real aim in
impounding the bicycles is not
known by most of the students and
that they should be informed of
this aim.
In view of this discussion the
motion was officially withdrawn

Opposition to War
Basic Ingredient
Of Political Ideas
"When public opinion has been
created, then and only then will
the world reach agreement to stop
atomic testing," Prof. George Sea-
ver of the University of Dublin,
quoted Albert Schweitzer.
The lecture, one of a two-part
series, is a'part of a program about
Albert Schweitzer sponsored by
Student Government Council and
the Office of Religious Affairs.
Prof. Seaver is a member of the
Albert Schweitzer Education Foun-
dation whose purpose is that of
spreading of Dr. Schweitzer's ideal
of a purposeful life and of a rever-
ence for living itself.
Prof. Seaver abstracted a report
presented by Dr. Schweitzer to a
scientists' congress who met to
discuss the sensation of atomic
The scientists declared that the
long term effects of testing result
in increased numbers of deformed
The appalling idea, Dr. Schweit-
zer said, is internal and external
effects resulting from exposure to
radiation will not appear for a
few generations.
International law must be
brought forth so that it may face
facts and do its, duty - nuclear
testing dies in the jurisdiction of
international law.
Mankind Perilled
Mankind, who is perilled by
these tests, mutt insist that they
be stopped. because that is their
right, it asserted.
"All I' can do is to pray to
counter the attack of atomic
bombs," said Dr. Schweitzer. Walls
of adequate thickness cannot be
erected to protect entire cities,
which could be easily destroyed by
these bombs, he continued.
There would be no warning for
such a war, Dr. Schweitzerf said.
This surprise factor itself causes
extreme tension which itself can
spark the outbreak of an atomic
war, stated the report.
In the future such danger is
likely to increase.
An urgent renunciation of atom-
ic testing is then necessary.
Testing Trespasses
Atomic testing trespasses on hu-
man rights, Dr. Schweitzer as-
serted. It affects people who are
geographically far from the coun-
tries which are testing.
A nuclear war which destroys
non-participating people shouldn't
become a reality.

'Reverence of Life
Essential Element
Of Ethical Ideas
- Reverence , for life is the es-
sence of the ethics of self-devo-
tion to others and self-denial to
oneself, Prof. Seaver said Wednes-
The most elementary experi-
ences of the conscience is capable
of awareness, sensation and a de-
sire to maintain self in existence,
Prof. Seaver said.
From these are derived the
characteristics of intelligence, sen-
sitivity and purposeful effort.
Quoting Dr. Schweitzer; Prof..
Seaver averred, "The essential na-
ture of life is to live to the fullest,
to try to attain the highest pos-
sible perfection."
Must Reach, Out
Self - realization is attainable
through measures of self-sacrifice,
Prof. Seaver continued. Man must
reach out into the lives of others,
and devote his compassion to them.
Dr. Schweitzer is devoting his
attention to what comes into his
reach in order to give his poor
existence a new richness and
meaning, Prof. Seaver asserted
The reverence for life engenders a
new-found sensibility and imposes
respect for fellow men.
Dr. Schweitz6r knows himself as
a man who owes duty, there is no
independence of men-only inter-
Needs Concern
Man shouldhave a tremendous
~concern in him. for those with
whom he comes into contact, Prof.
Seaver added, but he can't be ex
petted to be able to reach into
the realm of their souls.
"There is a modesty of the soul
that has to be recognized in the
same way as that of the body," he
said. "Only in brief passage can
we see people as they really are-
usually through words."

Fla. - The 319th Fighter Inter-
cepter Squadron from the Bunker
Hill Air Force Base, Indiana,
clinched first place Wednesday in
its category in the Seventh World-
Wide Weapons Meet.
In the division for F-89 Scor-
pion jets, the "Tomcats" from
Bunker Hill built up a large point
spread overthe second-place
team, the 29th FIS from Great
Falls, Mont. This team can only
hope for a first-place tie by to-
talling a perfect score for, the rest
of the meet.
Among the F-102 Delta Daggers
which make up the second divi-
sion, the 525 AFB from Bitburg,
Germany, has taken first place.
In second place in total points is

Fighter squadrons have flown in
from all over the world to take

ALBERT SCHWEITZER-The thought of Albert Schweitzer was
analyzed this week in two lectures at the University by Prof,
George Seaver of the University of Dublin. Schweitzer has called.,
for a new look at atomic warfare and put forward a modern
Christian ethical system.

The renunciation of nuclear
weapons so that people may live
in peace is very possible, Dr.
Schweitzer predicted. Pres. Eisen-
hower said that "What the world
needs more than a gigantic leap
into space is a gigantic leap into
Not Pacifist
Prof. Seaver said Dr. Schweitzer
wouldn't call himself a pacifist be-
cause life is too complex for that.
He does recognize .that wars. may
accomplish good;,but one still must
strive to be a peace maker and a
peace lover.
It is right to promote life and
.enhance it, but wrong to hinder
and destroy it.
Dr. Schweitzer has said that we
cannot regard any war, even one
of self-defense, as ethical, Prof.
Seaver commented.
Discusses War
It may be argued that wars in
the past resulted in the rise of su-
perior civilization, but the contrary
also happened, Dr. Schweitzer said
in his report.
Now in the present century or
in the future, there is no chance
of humanizing war.
Man with his modern equipment
has become a superman. His ar-
row has become an atomic bomb.
Should Foster Peace
We should foster the ideal of
peace, and the men at the helm

of our destiny should conform to
Dr. Schweitzer said, that we
must await for a sign in which we
can put our trust.
This sign will take the form of
the beginning of attention of every
na'tion to correct the wrongs it has
inflicted on. others. The ideal is
not impossible or inapplicable to
Dr. Schweitzer was optimistic
with regard to the eventual- res-
toration of humanization, con-
cluded Prof. Seaver. "He has faith
in the spirit of truth and the truth
of spirit. When the world is dark-
ened, his faith shines equal."
Party Elects
New Chairman
Weston E. Vivian was elected
chairman of the Ann Arbor City
Democratic Committee at a meet-
ing last night.
"As new chairman of the Ann
Arbor Democratic Committee, I
want to re-emphasize that each
and every Ann Arbor resident who
has a serious and honest interestj
in city government is welcome in'
Democratic city activities," Vivian
said after his election.

In Biblical language, ethical combat-tested sidewin
mysticism is expressed in "Love
