S TUDENTS who have difficulty in<
reconciling the traditional ortho-
dox dogma of religion with the newly attained
wideiing of thought which higher learning hast
supposedly brought them will welcome the In-l
stitute on Liberal Religion which will be held1
in the Unitarian Church this week.
Sponsored by the Laymen's League of that
church, which group includes some of the most
advanced thinkers among the university faculty!
members, the institute will attempt a solution
of this problem.
In arranging for the presence of Prof. J. Fag-
gington Auer of Harvard Divinity School, who
will deliver seven lectures and conduct discussion.
groups on topics which thinking students of re-
ligion recognize as important, the committee in
charge has done a real service for Ann Arbor.
Professor Auer is well fitted for the task, being
one of the leaders of the Humanist movement
in the United States. An expert exponent of this
philosophy, he is the author of the much-dis-
cussed book, "Humanism States Its Case."
It is a fact that a society without xiigion has
never existed, but today many are cming to
believe that religion should be based upon a sin-
cere appreciation of the facts and not upon re-
liance on outworn dogma. Charles A. Beard,
eminent historian, expresses a corollary view to
this when in his book, "America Faces the Fu-
ture," he says that "religious leadership can no
longer be content with evasion and vague piety,
save at great peril to the church as an institu-
Some students are aware that they face a choice
in beliefs. They realize the necessity for some
kind of religion but are often lost in their grop-
ing through timeworn doctrine. If the old and
tried methods have fallen down, the logical alter-
native is for these students to look for something
new. Any new idea in religion should appeal to
Modern Humanism is comparatively new. Stu-
dents who are interested in finding fresh approach
to religion will be glad of this ample opportunity
to investigate this new concept of the importance
of the individual in the scheme of things.

M RS. MARGARET MAC GREGOR, a graduate
student of Professor Christian, will present an
organ recital in Hill Auditorium tomorrow after-
noon at 4:15. Mrs. MacGregor is an experi-
enced organist, having graduated from the Cin-
cinnati College of Music in 1921. While studying
here with Professor Christian after 1926 she was
his assisant. For more than three years, since
1930, she has been at the head of the organ de-
partment at Simpson College in Iowa. She has
won the reputation of being an unusually capa-
ble organist, with brilliancy of technique and con-

TO BE PRAISED
To The Editor:
It is not often that an undergraduate in the
University of Michigan offers such a splendid ex-
ample of courageous, honest and thoughtful
action as that of Sherwood Messner, President of
the Student Christian Association and a member
of the Undergraduate Council, when he recently
resigned for conscientious r e a s o n s from the
R.O.T.C. Moreover, rarely does an officer of a
campus Christian organization make a stand on
a real moral issue, such as this one on which Mr.
Messner has stood. Certainly 'stands' and actions
of his character constitute essential aspects of
adequate student leadership.
It will be distinctly encouraging to Mr. Messner
and others on the Campus who are contemplating
similar action that students in several other
American Universities are 1 i k e w i s e protesting
against the presence of the military organization
in educational centers, in this effective manner.
And perhaps no more succinct and worthy state-
ment of explanation could be made by any of
these 'men against the sky' than given by Ray
Ohlson of the University of Minnesota when his
'conscience objection' to the R.O.T.C. partici-
pation was recently sustained by President Coff-
man. He said, as reported in the Minnesota Daily,
"I can go on with my education now. I want some
and Currency Committee, is advice which if fol-
lowed will greatly strengthen the banks in the
confidence of the public.
Character, says the report, is to be emphasized
above the security of collateral. "The fundamen-
tal of every loan should be the character of the
borrower." The reason for this long has been
recognized in business: Money and the things rep-
resenting money fluctuate in value; good charac-
ter is a permanent asset.
The committee points also to several practices
which no longer should be countenanced in the
conduct of any bank. Loans were made obviously
for no other purpose than speculation in the stock
market. "They were made to clerks, stenogra-
phers, bank officers, salesmen and others whose
income was not sufficient to warrant any sub-
stantial credit." The day of the stock gambling
bank and banker must be over.
And equally to be condemned was the practice
of making the so-called "policy" loans. These were
made to judges of courts, referees in bankruptcy
and other political officials. The report says,
"Many of these loans are doubtful." All such
loans not only are doubtful, they are to be con-
demned unstintingly. The banking business is a
sacred trust relationship with the public. It
must be maintained upon the sacred basis of
honesty and good character.

WASHINGTON- Many of President Roosevelt's
most recent diplomatic appointees are to
escape the dubious pleasure of telling a Senatorial
committee why they are the right men in the
right place and should be confirmed. They are on
their jobs and are to stay there.
They became "designates" automatically with
the convening of Congress, the recess status being
over. The business of looking into their qualifica-
tions will be conducted in their absence. That any
will be rejected is improbable.
* . *
AMBASSADOR BULTJTT, homeward bound
from his first contact with Moscow in that
role, is another matter. There was no serious talk
of attempting to prevent his confirmation; but
senators are eager to scan closely all the circum-
stances surrounding Roosevelt recognition of the
Soviet government. It seems likely that the rea
reason Bullitt planned to make a quick job of get-
ting his embassy going in Moscow was to allow for
his appearance before the foreign relations com-
It would have complicated matters in the Rus-
so-American rapprochement if the ambassador
had settled on his job and then been compelled to
hurry home by Senate request. That might have
happened. It was better strategy to have him
available and let the business of confirmation pre-
cede his actual opening of the new embassy.
BULLITT should make an interesting commit-
tee witness. He has been in on Russian de-
velopments from the start, shared in the Litvi-
noff-Roosevelt conversations, has had opportunity
since recognition to be in touch with Soviet offi-
cialdom generally and must be primed now with
detailed ideas about what is to come next.
He is bringing home from Russia the first offi-
cial American report on conditions in Russia
since diplomatic relations lapsed.
It may be noteworthy that Senator Arthur Rob-
inson of Indiana has worked his way to the junior
Republican seat on the foreign relations commit-
tee. His attitude has been such as to insure as
complete an airing as he can compass of every
actual or implied commitment in the recognition
of the Moscow regime.

Farm States Rule
'HE senate foreign relations committee is cu-
riously under domination of western and
southern agricultural states. It has only two east-
erners, Wagner of New York and Reed of Penn-

By contrast it has both senators, in each case
one a Democrat and the other a Republican, from
Indiana, Wisconsin and Idaho. Minnesota, Illinois,

An engineering student at the University of
California walked up to one of his professors
and handed him a large bundle of assign-
ments. Noticing a sheepish look on the face
of the student, the professor asked suspi-
ciously, "What's all this?"
"These are my Mae West problem sets,"
explained the student.
"Yeah, I done 'em wrong."
