Faculty, Students, Citizens to Join in Religious Emphasi

s Week.

Noted Divine to Lead Discussion
Held in Connection With
Religious Program.
Bursley, Edmonson, Duffendack
Commend Plan Which Goes
Into Effect Today.
Students of the University, mern-
bers of the faculty, and the citizens
of Ann Arbor will join today in the
first meetings of Religious Empha-
sis week which will continue until
Saturday. Most of the church serv-
ices in the city today are being held
in conjunction witn the observance,
especially the young people's meet-
ings in the various student church
During the week, an attempt will
be made to combine the members
of all the various creeds and
churches represented in the Uni-
versity and in the city on the com-
mon basis of a searching analysis
into the ,religious problems of the
day especially as they concern the
young people and the students.
Leaders Distinguished.
Liberal leaders representing all
the denominations of the day have
been secured to lead the discussion
groups and the devotional meet-
ings for the period. The list of men
who will be in the city for the week
includes a large number who are
distinguished as religious leaders,
as thinkers in connection with the
modern problems, and many of
them as writers and authors of
books in various fields.
The project has, since its incep-
tion, received the unlimited support
of the faculty of the University
, . who have combined in expressing
their entire approval of the period
and its purposes.
In this connection, Joseph A.
: Lursley, dean of students, stated, "I
feel that this program for the Re-
ligious Emphasis week cannot help
having good results. The very fact
that all the religious interests are
combining in this effort and that it
has received the support of a con-
siderable body of students makes
it significant and insures its sue-
Edmonson Gives Support.
Dean J. B. Edmondson, of the
School of Education, added his sup-
port to the project and said, "The
plans for Religious Emphasis week
make a strong appeal to me. The
fact that all of the religious groups
are supporting the plans gives evi-
dence of a fine cooperative spirit. It
is my prediction that students and
faculty members will give the pro-
gram a degree of support that will
help to make it a real factor in the
life of the University."
"It gives an opportunity for us to
clarify our minds on some questions
of human experience that are ex-
cluded from our curricula," Prof.
Ora S. Duffendack, of the physics]
department, said. "A fine spirit of
tolerance is implied in that each
group leaves to the others the car-
rying out of the purpose of the
Mission according to its own plane
and practices."

Ruthven Commends
President Alexander G r a n t
Ruthven has been enthsuiastic
in his support of the Religious
Emphasis week plan ever since
its first proposal and has added
his confirnia.,oni of the plan to
the statements of the other
members oi1 the faculty.
"The inaug;uration of Religious
Ernphasis weeii," he statzd, "is
a projcet cf significance in the
life of the University. Persons
outside of the University, con-
fusedby the apparentnessoe
the more material aspects of col-
lege life, are inclined to over-
look the fact that the religious
growth of the student is going
steadily forward, sometimes even
without his full knowledge. A
week of concentration on spiri-
tual values cannot fail to profit
each of us."
President Ruthven will be pre-
sent at an informal reception for
the visiting leaders at 4 o'clock
this afternoon in the League.
Students and faculty members
will have the opportunity of be-
coining acguainted with the men
who will lead the programs dur-
ing the next week.
