With the aid of movies of camps

how students live, work and study in

Personal Creed
A statement of religious beliefs by,
Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg features
the April issue of the Student Reli-
gious Association magazine, Religious
Forum, which came out yesterday.
"Religion is a code of life," writes
Senator Vandenberg. "It lifts men
and women into the realization that
the spirit is more important than
the flesh. It is the well spring of
morality. It is the key to hbnor and
integrity. It is the acknowledgement
of God and of the dependence of mor-
tals upon Higher Power which may be
ignored, but can never be evaded. It is
the hope of humanity here and here-
Other featured articles in the mag-
azine which invites articles from the

sophical and religious subjects are

gion," by Samuel Grant, '40, and

(By th Associated Press )
Great Britain poured reinforce-
ments across the North Sea into Nor-
way today in expectation of a major
battle with German forces attempt-
ing to consolidate their hold on the
southern half of Norway.-
"Operations are proceeding," thei
British announced in the first offi-i
cial statement that contact had been
established with the Norwegian de-
fenders. It added just as briefly:
"The landing of British troops con-
The British coupled this announce-
ment with another that their war-
planes in the past two days carried
out "highly successful operations,"
sinking one Nazi transport, scoring a
direct hit on a submarine and re-
peatedly bombing the German-occu-
pied Norwegian airport at Stavanger.
The airport was shelled Wednesday
by a British cruiser which, in turn
was hit by a German air bomb but
managed to return to its base.
Against these British claims, the
Germans declared their warplanes
sank one British cruiser Wednesday
off Norway, badly damaged light and
heavy cruisers with four direct bits,
bombed one destroyer and hit a Nor-
wegian torpedo boat,

of Hill Auditorium will be roped off
to accommodate the crowd, and
photographers from "Life" maga-
zine will be present to take pictures
of the event which is being spon-
sored by the Campus Peace Council,
newly formed group consisting of
15 student organizations.
To Begin At 11 A.M.
Starting immediately at 11 a.m.,
the program will start off with the
playing of "Ballad for Americans."
Carl -Petersen, chairman of the
Peace Council, will deliver an ad-
dress and he will be followed to the
rostrum by a war veteran who will
speak in "Johnny Got His Gun."
The feature address by Senator
Nye will be the highpoint on the
program, serving to make articulate'
opposition of youth toward becoming
involved in either of the two wars
now raging in Asia and Europe.
The program formulated by the
Peace Council is as follows:
"We stand unalterably opposed to
entry of the United States into war.
We support no nation at war. In the
interests of strict neutrality we op-
pose the following moves:
Specific Program
" . Sending American troops to
foreign soil.
"2. American war loans to bellig-
erent countries.
"3. Militarization of NYA or CCC.
"4. Mobilization Day preparation
or curtailment of civil liberties.
"5. War profiteering, and arms ex-
pansion beyond defensive needs.
"We recognize the part which the
U.S. must play as one of the family
of nations in building a permanent
peace, but we believe that keeping
the United States from War is the
greatest contribution the American
people can make."

received, by members of the Peace
Council are several from nationally
;prominent personages. Michigan's
