Rev. Merle H. Anderson, of the

said last night that the story print-

he attacked students for their re-

case of dishonest reporting to find

Theastudent publication quota-

sermon from the pulpit of the Fort

Sunday, was from "Chimes," a
monthly publication which w a s

reference was used only as an Illus-
tration of the "atmosphere of cyni-

things which in a university comr-

"Students," he said in his .ser-1

group so impatient with timid pus-

"The c h u r c h," he continued,
"must present a gospel which is+

code of the student.

A new medium of contact be-
tween the alumni of the University
and the administration, the Alumni
Advisory council, will hold its first
meeting here on Friday, June 19,
according to an announcement
made recently by Wilfred B. Shaw,
director of alumni relations.
The council had its inception in
the meetings of prominent alumni
which President Marion L. Burton
inaugurated during his period of
presidency. These meetings were
continuepd and led to the project of

for each 200 members over a mem-
bership of 100. This also applies to
the groups of alumnae. All of the
former directors of the Alumni
association of the University are
automatically members of the Ad-
visory council. In adition to these
regularly constituted members, a
few alumni were to be asked by the
President to serve as members-at-
lai ;e and represent those alumni
wh a would not come in under any
of ;he other classifications.
Since that primary meeting the
nominations for members has been
received from the alumni clubs and
the nominees have been sent invi-
tations to attend the first meeting
