Plans Are Being Made For Spring
Convocation Series To Start
Late In March
Henry Pitt VanDusen, professor
at Union theological seminary, and
one of the leaders in a group of
young men engaged in carrying a
modern religious message to stu-
dents, will address the third and
last convocation of the fall series
at 11 o'clock tomorrow in Hill au-
ditorium. He has chosen for his
subject "The Reasonableness of
VanDusen is known as one of
the more modernistic members of,
the ministry, and is said to em-3
body in his doctrines several anti-
fundamentalist conceptions. At the.
time of his ordination several of
the old-line clergy raised objec-1
tions, and newspapers featured his;
alleged denial of the virgin birth.
Followed Buchman
At Princeton VanDusen belongeds
to a group of insurgents that de-
clined invitations to join clubs,
classifying them as rubbish, and
joined the "Buchmanism" move-
ment that gained headway there
after the war.
Although he later sheared away
from Buchman's anti-sex emotion-
alism when it grew to fantastic
proportions, he was written up in
a book of anonymous character
sketches as a convert of Buchman.
He is identified with "Erd" Harris,'
"Sam" Schumacher, and other1
young men well-known in the
East for their Christian influence
among preparatory schools and
colleges, all of whom followed
Buchman for a while and then re-
pudiated the sect when it outgrew
the bounds of reason.
Has Published Book
VanDusen is the author of a
widely read book entitled "In
Quest of Life's Meaning."
After tomorrow's convocation no'
more will be held until the end
of March when the spring series
is scheduled to start. Attempts
are now under way to secure Dean
Charles, R. Brown, retired dean of
Yale Divinity school, and Hugh
Black, professor of practical theo-
logy at Union theological semi-
nary, for the spring series. Senator
