Gym Progran
Is Announced
By Dr. G. A. May
All Students Are Classified
In One Of Five Health
Groups After Exams
The program in physical education
for men, required during the first
two semesters of University attend-
ance, has been announced by Dr.
George A. May, director of the Wa-
terman Gymnasium.
As a result of the health examina-
tion given at the opening of the
semester, all students are classified
in five health groups, namely: no
defects, can participate in all activ-
ities; minor defects, can participate
in all activities, but must report to
the Health Service for check-up; re-
strictive and corrective exercise
group-modified exercise for correc-
tion; reconstruction group, no exer-
cise until advised by the Health Serv-
ice; and the excused group, chronic
defects that allow no exercise
Make Two Squads
Two exercise periods per week are
required during each of the two
semesters, but the first three weeks
of shool are taken up by a series
of hygiene lectures, of which six are
given. At the end of this series a
report must be handed in.
All assignments to activities are
made at the time of classification,
but these will not begin until the
fourth week of school. All activities
are divided into two groups-athletic
squads and gymnasium groups. In
the gymnasium groups, all classes
take place in Waterman Gymnasium
and are arranged in two one-hour
periods a week. There are five groups
of major activities; track and field
games (basketball, handball, volley-
ball, tennis, golf and softball), gym-
nastics, boxing and wrestling. Each I
group remains at an assigned activity1
for a period of three weeks, and then
changes to another, until all activities
have been participated in by all stu-
dents. On the last day of each three
week period a technique and record
test is given.
Outdoor Sports Later
After the spring recess, a reclassi-
fication is made of all activities.
Students at this time can select any
of the following outdoor activities as
well as any indoor activity: golf, ten-
nis, swimming, baseball, softball or
track and field.
For participation in the activities
of athletic groups, some preliminary
experience is of advantage, but it is
not required. Participation and com-
petition are carried on along varsity
team lines. Cessation of the sport,
or non-attendance will automatically
transfer the student to one of the
gymnasium groups.
Each student working in the gym-
nasium must have his own locker, the
fee being two dollars. The regulation
suit required of all students is a
sleeveless white gymnasium shirt,
white running pants and tennis shoes.
All hygiene lectures will be given in
Room 25, Angell Hall.
New Furnace
Is Purchased
For Research
A new heat-treating furnace,
which is being used for testing all-
metal parts, was installed in the
University Research Laboratories in
July at a cost of $1,500, according to
Dr. Richard Schneidewind, of the en-
gineering research department.
The installation of the furnace

caused some trouble as it was three
times as large as any of the doors.
The problem was finally solved by
partially dismantling the furnace and
cutting through the woodwork of the
The inside of the furnace resembles
an ordinary stove with a toaster on
each side. The hearth is of chro:(ie-
metal and will easily withstand the
top temperature of the furnace, 1850
degrees Fahrenheit. An automatic
scale enables the furnace to keep
within 10 degrees of the set tempera-
Lure as the degree of radiation is
very low.
At the present time, research is
being done on cast-iron automobile
parts. The advantage of cast-iron
parts over steel is that they are
easy to size, whereas steel parts must
be machined to the proper dimen-
The work is being done on the
actual parts instead of test bars,
which is the usual procedure. The
researchers are thus enabled to un-
derstand how much heat-treating
the actual part will need.

Graduate Students
All new graduate students of the
University are invited to become
members of the Graduate Outing
Club, according to Edward Marceau,
'38D, president.
The first meeting of the organiza-
tion for this year will be held Sun-
day, Oct. 4. Further details can be
found by reading the Daily Official
Bulletin, Marceau said.
Differing from most clubs on cam-
pus in that its meetings consist of
outdoor activities, the Graduate Out-
ing Club offers diversion and enter-
tainment for its members. Hikes,
camping trips, swimming, skiing,
skating, toboganning, and canoeing
are a few of its activities. Wamplers
Lake, the Wolverine Day Camp,
Camp New-Kirk, Silver Lake, and
many other similar plalces are visited
by the group.
Social gatherings are also held by
i ail

the organization, such as the annual tudents,
banquet and Christmas party. members
The club is open to all graduate school in

and the are, at prescnt,
from practically every
the University.



Above is the architects' conception of the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School building, now under con-
struction between Thayer and 12th streets on Washington St., one block from the campus.. Smith, Hinch-
man & Grylls, Inc., Detroit, architects and engineers of the construction, have not given an estimate as
to when the project will be completed.

Blakeman Stresses Inter-Faith
Education In Talk At Lawrence
Recommends Recognition and should receive more attention
Of 4: Eastern, Jewish, jfrom Christians, and particularly our
. Christian colleges might well lead in
Catholic, Protestant popularizing such studies."
By JAMES BOOZER Upon Catholic Christianity he said:
"To ignore the basic educational
Inter-Faith education of University and ecclesiastical differences between

students was the themie f Dn.E .
Blakeman, counselor in religious edu-
cation, when he spoke at the Institute
of Human Relations on the campus
of Lawrence University, Appleton,
Wis., on Aug. 31.
In his address he recommended
recognition not of two faiths but of
four: Eastern, Jewish, Catholic and
"In communities where ignorance
often slumps to arrogance and arro-
gance turns to fear, and fear causes
majority persecutions against minor-
ities, we will come to well-grounded
hope and fundamental assurance
only when we know that the grad-
uates of our American colleges and
universities have mastered the facts
of religious history, trained them-
selves to attitudes adequate to cul-
ture and powerful against the an-
tagonisms of Main Street," declared
Dr. Blakeman.
University Obligations
"It would seem to be the imme-
diate duty of our American Chris-
tian colleges and of all religious lead-
ers in universities to stand forth un-
flinchingly, wisely, and persistently
for full inter-faith education within
the student body . . . to see that each
graduate shall know both Catholicism
and Protestantism. Students should
not be able to go through a great
American university, receive valida-
tion with a degree and go forth ig-
norant of the Hinduism, Zoroaste-
anism, Islam, Buddhism, Shintoism
ind the inner motives which char-
acterize fully two-thirds of the hu-
man race."
Speaking of the Jewish faith, Dr.
Blakeman said: "The Hillel Founda-
tion in each university is led by an
able rabbi, and a splendid beginning
has been made. But as yet there
are but small endowments, only a
few courses with credit.
Tired of Labels
"As a minority group within a
Christian population and as a special
stress of spiritual and ethical influ-
ence, the Jewish points of view, Jew-
ish scriptures, dietary laws, family,
disciplines, traditions which persist
across nations and down the course
of history constitute a Jewish culture

the two major families of Christian-
ity is to postpone the good will and
confidence which await us when we
actually understand each other."
Need Research Approach
Turning to the Protestant faith, he
declared that "While one is looking
for Wesley's picture of Him, another
for Luther's, a third for Calvin's, the
Jesus of History walks unrecognized
among our youth, knocks in vain at
the door of our scholars and comes
unwelcome through our counting
houses. People who are outside the
denominations are weary of historic
"We need not more preaching and
more church promotion but a re-,
search approach to the spiritual and
social problems involved. Research
in the sociology and psychology of
religion and in the meaning of such
practices as group worship, are need-
"Our colleges and universities have
a staggering task of social recon-
struction just here. It is in these
centers of learning that experiments
of this type are going on and that is
good. But in the specific matter of
inter-faith education there is a
strange silence.
New System Needed
"At Michigan," he told the assem-
blage, "a new approach is through
the counseling system of the Univer-
sity. The Counselor in Religious Ed-
ucation, serving any or all students,
has been assigned the task of: (1)
Understanding the problems of reli-
gion at a state university and of in-
creasing the facilities for religious
development; (2) A religious coun-
selor available to students daily; and
(3) Adviser to the University in re-
ligious matters and contact person
between religious agencies and the
"But in none of the university sys-
tems that have been set up," accord-
ing to Dr. Blakeman, "have we de-
veloped an inter-faith education
which definitely sends students across
the lines of tradition to bring back
the facts and catch the spirit in the
adjoining tradition. This marks the
next advance which challenges all

Crowds Greet
Two Speakers
On Religion
Koo, Jones, Missionaries
From Far East, Lecture
To Capacity Audiences
The campus was host over the
week-end to two world-known relig-
ious leaders when' Dr. T. Z. Koo,
of China, and the Rev. Dr. E. Stanley
Jones, missionary in India and au-
thor, spoke to students and towns-
Dr.Koo, secretary of the World's
Christian Student Federation, spoke
on "Religion as a Cure for the
World's Ills" on Sept. 25 in the Con-
gregational Church. He was intro-
duced to a packed house by Dr. E.
W. Blakeman, counselor in religious
"The concept of God is fundamen-
tal to the necessary sense of moral
obligation," D r. K o o declared.
"Therefore religion is fundamental to
world affairs."
He stressed the sense of worth of
the person, and said that only re-
ligion adequately exalts person above
movements and circumstances. The
worth of the person and the sense of
moral obligation should be made con-
crete, he asserted. "In Christian
religion Jesus Christ is such an ex-
ample as is needed. Here is an in-
timate, well-understood illustration."
. Afterwards, Dr. Koo attended a
reception by Chinese students.
Sunday evening the Rev. E. Stanley
Jones, author of "Christ and Com-
munism," and other books, spoke on
the research attitude toward religion.
His Methodist Church audience over-
flowed into adjacent rooms, neces-
sitating use of amplifiers. Speaking
in terse, dramatic sentences, his ap-
proach was that of simplicity. His
theme was the "Practical Results of
Mystical Religion."
Black is reaching new fashion
heights this fall according to late
fashion reports, but it is usually ac-
centuated with a great deal of color.

dark suits with matching or con-
trasting accessories.
