Protestant Episcopal Church asked
the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A.
tcnight to join with it in steps to
achieve organic union.
The Church, through its triennial
general convention, authorized a co-
mission to confer with representatives
of the Presbyterian Church on the
draft of a concordat.
While prospects of physical union
in the near future are considered
doubtful, proponents of unity hope
for an early agreement on funda-
mental principles of doctrine which
might lead eventually to fulfillment
of Christ's prayer "that they all may
be one."
Another step toward achievement
of the long-sought goal of many
theologians for one world faith was
taken when the convention endorsed
the proposed World Council of
Churches and agreed to send dele-

ideal soaring terrain.1
A legendary spot of the Indians,
later an outstanding landmark for
early French voyageurs and more
recently famous as the world's largest
extant sand dune, Sleeping Bear Sand
Dune is now fast becoming a mecca,
for midwest soaring enthusiasts. It,
is reported that it is a terrain where'
the wind is dependable and where
take-off and landing problems are
not exacting.
Until the present time, no midwest
terrain where conditions have been
favorable for gliding was available.
The whole world offered only two fa-1
vorably developed glider locales, the
Kasserkuppe in Germany and Harris
Ridge, at Elmira, New York.
Dependability is Sleeping Bear's
main attraction. Offshore winds,
which come in from the unbroken ex-:

flected upward by the steep bluffs,

guage as "thermals." These thermals
