Campus Group' Seeks Peace
Throughout All Civilized World

Reeonciliation Fellowship
Also Considers Social
And Industrial Matters
Working hand in hand with the
pacifist movement throughout the
world, a group of students in the Uni-
versity is seeking to extend the idea
of peace between nations and mdi-
viduals through a program of dis-
cussions, service and combinationE
with similar groups in other coun-
The group is called the Fellowship
of Reconciliation and is part of 'the
international organization bearing the
same name. It includes the national
groups of many different countries,
aThtig which are Great Britain,
France, Germany, Italy, China, Japan
and India. With 11,000 and 10,000
fiternbers respectively, Great Britain
and the United States lead this move-
ment which, though mainly composedi
of.. Protestants, is non-sectarian.
The local chapter of the Fellowship
includes students of several different
religions and attempts to be non-
,organizational in character, accord-
ing to William Scott, Grad., presi-
dent, so that all interested in peace
will take part in the group's activi-
Contrary to popular belief, the Fel-
lowship does not deal only with thel
abolition of war. Rather, it deals with
all.types of human conflict, such as
industrial and social problems. Its
general creed holds that its mem-
bers shall refuse to take part in wars
or sanction military preparations,
that they shall attempt to build a
social order in which no person or
grad shall be exploited, that reform
rather than punishment of the wrong-
doer shall be the rule, that the indi-
vidual personality shall, at all times,
be of prime importance and that

selfishness and bitterness shall be
The local group, in order to carry,
out its part, has sponsored several
discussions and meetings dealing with
the problems of modern day life. More
concretely, the members have been
working for.. the past year on such
things as the improvement of local
Negro-white relations.
In connection with this subject, the
Fellowship has set up the first inter-
racial rooming. house in Ann. Arbor,
and it has been carrying on an inves-
tigation of housing conditions of Ne-
gro students.

Apparatus Ecchange: The Regents
at their meeting in March, 1927, au-
thorized an arrangement for the sale
of scientific apparatus by one de-
partment to another, the proceeds
of the sale to be credited to the
budget account of the department
from which the apparatus is trans-
Departments having apparatus'
which is not in active use are advised
to send description thereof to the
University Chemistry Store, of which
Prof. R. J. Carney is director. The
Chemistry store- headquarters are in
Room 223 Chemistry Building. An
effort will be made to sell the appara-
tus to other departments which are
likely to be able to use it. In some
instances the apparatus may be sent
to the University Chemistry store on
consignment and if it is not sold
within a reasonable time, it will be
returned to the department from
which it was received. The object
of this arrangement is to promote
economy by reducing the amount of
unused apparatus. It is hoped that
departments having such apparatus
will realize the advantage to them-
selves and to the University in avail-
ing themselves of this opportunity.

Robert Cunningham, '41E, the man who rid the West Quadrangle
of its skunk, but who suffered from start to finish, was grabbed, for the
finish, by roommate Richard Westerman, '41E, and Richard D. Gau-
thier, '43E, and George Carlisle, '41E, who threw him into the Chicago
House shower.

Robert Cunningham, '41E, was
tossed into the Chicago House shower
last night and in with him, West
Quadrangle residents hope, went the
last traces of the vile-smelling skunk
which has been bothering the men's
dorms for the past two weeks.
For it was Cunningham with Rob-
ert R. Bearman, '43, who led a small
posse of Chicago and Lloyd House
residents into the partially inundated
Union parking lot adjacent to the
dorms last night, and hacked the
half-frozen carcass of a dead skunk
from the ground.
Led on by cheers of half a hun-
dred men in the dormitory leaning
out of their windows to make the
Quadrangle look like a New York
tenement on a hot summer night,
Cunningham pushed, kicked and fin-
ally threw the odoriferous remains
into the gutter at the corner of
Thompson and Williams streets, leav-
ing it there to be picked up by the
"That skunk," Cunningham said as
he baked himself in a hot shower,
"smelled! . . . smelled like no skunk
has a right to smell." But his role
as a hero was cut short when he re-
entered the dormitory and went the
way of all victorious coxswains. Last

night's successful discovery culmin-
ated a week's search for the animal
by custodians and students. It was
not until the sun melted the ice in
the parking lot that the ground gave
up its noxious victim.
Told of the discovery, Peter A. Osta-
fin, assistant resident-adviser of
Lloyd House said, "Ah, a commend-
able anticipation of spring cleaning."
"Oh, it was nothing," cohort Bear-
man said, "after all we did have one
big clue to work on . . . I'm afraid
I'll have it for a week."j
Chicago and Lloyd House mem-
bers who received the brunt of the
attack as their rooms face the park-

boys had something to do with the
skunk and hinted that retaliation,
