Philosophy and ideals of the undergraduate will come under
searching inquiry and discussion at a conference to be held here
during the second week of the next semester, according to an
announcement that University authorities made yesterday in con-
junction with various religious organizations sponsoring a six-day
session to be held in Ann Arbor.
The week's deliberations will be devoted to the problem of
clearing up the present confusion about religion and its function
in life that exists in the student mind.

Australian Selected
as Governor-General
(Bpi Associated Press)
LONDON, Dec. 2.-- Sir Isaac
Alfred Isaacs, chief justice of
Australia, was appointed gover-
nor-general of that dominion
today, the first Australian to be
so honored.
His appointment marked an
important constitutional change
in the relations between Great
Britain and the self-governing
dominions of the empire. Gov-
ernors-general previously w;ere
named directly by the home
government without recommen-
dation by the dominion, and
hence, were Englishmen.
Australia long has contended,
however, that she should choose
her own governor-general, and
that he should be a native of the
country.

AUTO PLATE SALE
PASSES 100 MARK
The distribution of 1931 auto li-
cense plates, which were placed on
general sale Monday, passed the
100 mark yesterday. Seventy-three
sets of plates, the first to be issued,
were sold Monday at the auto li-
cense bureau in the Chamber of
Commerce building.
Owners of cars having new plates,
may put them into immediate use,;
it was said at the bureau. The Ann
Arbor police department, together
with the sheriff's office, has au-
thorized use of the plates. Old
plates, however, may be used until
the time limit expires.
Automobile owners, having titles
to cars either out-of-state or for-
eign, should make application for
Michigan titles as soon as possible,
Mrs. Edna Gee,. in charge of the'
bureau, said. No license plates will
be issued unless owners possess a
Michigan title.
The Weather
Light snow Wednesday, much
colder at night; Thursday snow
flurries and rather cold.

The inauguration of "Religious
Emphasis Week" is a project of
significance in the life of the
University. Persons outside of
the University, confused by the
apparentness of the more mater-
ial aspects of college life, are in-
clined to overlook the fact that
the religious growth of the stud-
ent is going steadily forward,
sometimes even without his full
knowledge. A week of concentra-
tion on spiritual values cannot
fail to profit each of us.
"Religious Emphasis Week" as
the session of conferences has been
named, scheduled for Feb. 22 to
March 1, will come at a time when,
the press of studies is at its lowest,
it is believed. Besides this, the week
is being kept clear of almost all
outside activities such as plays,
concerts, and basketball games
through the co-operation of Dr.
Ruthven, the deans of the various
colleges and the chief organizations
of the campus. As far as possible
nothing will conflict with the sched-
uled conferences and lectures.
QUAKER'SRELIGION
Anne Sprague, Detroit Society's
Secretary, Views Belief as
Entering New Era.
A plea to members of the Tols-
toy league to view the religion of
the Society of Friends as one of the
possible faiths of the future was
made yesterday by Miss Anne
Sprague, secretary of the Detroit
Society of Quakers, in her speech
"The Dawning Era's Religion" giv-
en in Angell hall before this group.
Miss Sprague stated that Quak-
ers were thought of both in history
and at the present time as paci-
fists. However, they are not the
type of pacifists. that have their
rights infringed upon. The reason
for this, she stated, is that they be-
