Ann Arbor Community Forum
Enters Sixth Year Of 'Service'

Characterized in a School of Edu-
cation talk in 1935 as a "contribution
to community well-being and the
preservation of democratic liberty,"
the Ann Arbor Community Forum
advances in 1940 into its sixth year
of "community enlightenment and
service.
The sessions of the Forum, which
meets at 8 p.m. the second and fourth
Mondays of each month at the Pat-
tengill Auditorium of the Ann Arbor
High School, are open to all.
Purpose Of Forum
The purpose of the Forum, accord-
ing to C.C. Crawford, member of its
board, is "to provide an opportunity,
for the citizens of An Arbor to meet
and discuss current and pertinent
local, state, national and interna-
tional problems."
The Forum is sponsored by the
Board of Education and administered
by a Forum Board composed of in-
dividuals and representatives of or-
ganizations in Ann Arbor whose
special interests are centered in adult
education and who have special con-
tributions to make to the progress of
adult education in Ann Arbor.
Ann Arbor's Superintendent of
Schools is an ex-officio member of
the Forum Board; other members of
the Board are nominated by the
Director of Adult Education of the
Public Schools and are appointed
by the Board of Education at its
September meeting.
The University's Bureau of Alumni
Relations, the University's Extension
Service, the local Junior Chamber of
Commerce, the Director of Adult
education, the American Association
of University Women, the Superin-
tendent of Schools, the West Side
Women's Club, the Ministerial Asso-
ciation, the Ann Arbor Women's
Club, Unity Hall, the Public Library,
the American Legion, the Citizen's
Council, the League of Women Vot-
ers, the Labor and Trades Council
and the High School Forum consti-
tute the groups represented on the
Community Forum Board. The mem-
bers of the Board hold office for one
year.
Systems Of Presentation
The Forum, in its programs, takes
advantage of the single lecture, sym-
posium panel jury and debate sys-

tary of the Alumni Association, will

tems of presentation and has also
evolved a system which it considers
unique. Under this new system, the
Forum hears one speaker who is
selected because he is thought to be
unbiased and following his talk, a
speaker presents the affirmative side
of the proposition under discussion
and another speaker presents the
negative. This system is usually made
use of in the discussions of extremely
controversial subjects. As in all For-
um meetings, half of the session is
devoted to audience questions and
participation.
The Forum, Mr. Crawford pointed
out, "is in no sense an action group.
Other organizations may be stimu-
lated to take action as a result of dis-
cussions at Forum meetings, but the
Forum as such should take no stand
pass no resolutions,, and come to no
conclusions."
"The Forum should reach all groups
of the community and make all feel
at home," he said. "A special attempt
should be made to attract those of
the lower income brackets who are
too infrequently represented in civic
organizations," Mr. Crawford con-
cluded.
