Religion, War
Will lie Subject
Of Symposium
Leaders From All Church
Groups Will Lecture
Here Tuesday Evening
"Religion in a World at War"
will be the subject of a symposium
led by a Jewish rabbi, a Catholic
priest and a Protestant minister at 8
p.m. Tuesday in the Rackham Lec-
ture Hall under the auspices of the
Natinal Conference of Christian
and Jews and the Student Religious
The three speeakers are Rabbi Lou-
is Binstock, Father George H. Dunne
and Dr..Otto Nall.
Rabbi Binstock is the leader of the
Temple Sholem, one of the largest
congregations in Chicago. For ten
years he was a rabbi in New Orleans
and has spent three summers recent-
ly in Europe. He is well acquaintedi
with conditions in Germany, Russia,;
Scandinavia and Palestine during the
last decade.
At the present time he is vice-presi-
dent of the Chicago Urban League,
director of Jewish charities, and a
leader in civic affairs. Rabbi Bin-
stock is a graduate of the University
of Tennesee and the University of
International Relations Students
A member of the staff of the fam-
ous Jesuit mission at Zikawei, Father
Dunne is making a study of inter-
national relations at the University
of Chicago, and has been an active
participant in the Chicago Round-
table of Christians and Jews. He is
a graduate of Loyola University,
Santa Clara and Gonzaga University
of Spokane.
Dr. Hall, a writer on youth's prob-
lems will represent the Protestant
position. He is a graduate of Hamline
University of St. Paul and the Uni-
versity of Minnesota. Dr. Hall was
formerly a member of the Medill
School of Journalism. He was or-
dained a minister at the Minnesota
Conference of the Methodist Church
in 1924.
Hall Acts As Editor
Later Dr. Hall became editor of
the Epworth Herald And a represent-
ative on the Cincinnati editorial
board. During the past year he has
been managing editor of the Chris-
tian Advocate. He is author of
"Youth's Work in the New World,"
"New Occupation for Youth," and
"Moving Days for Youth."
The symposium is under the aus-
pices of the Student Religious Associ-
ation and the National Conference
of Christians and Jews founded in
1928 for justice, amity, understand-
ingand cooperation among the three
faiths. The chairman of the com-
mittee for the Mid-West is General
Charles G. Dawes.
The program is open to the campus
and constitutes the continuation of
the lecture series sponsored annually
by the Association.

appreciated without any actual an-
alysis of form," he continued, "but
the extent of appreciation can be
measured mathematically, thus giv-
ing an estimate of the relative merit

of that particular piece of art with
another of the same class."
In analyzing a piece of art, accord-
ing toy Dr. Birkhoff, the first con-
sciousness is that of paying atten-
tion. Next you appreciate the men-
tal associations, and then inevitably
analyze the piece of art in aesthetic
Thus in measuring the aesthetic
appreciation of any artistic form, a
concrete estimation of the form and
its variety must be made, and placed
in relation to the complexity of forms
of the entire artistic piece, Dr. Birk-
hoff continued.

regarded as a cure for insanity, he
said that it exercises the same psy-
chological and physiological effect
upon mental patients as rest and
diet on physically-ill patients.
"Group singing and group dancing,
which follow exposure to music and
which involve more complex proc-
esses, offer the patient a further op-
portunity for wider and more active
expression," Dr. Altshuler stated.
He noted that naked rhythm, such
as tapping, is an efficient thalamic
stimulus, but that the "dressed"
rhythm as embodied in tone, has a
more powerful appeal. "Music is

pleasing and integrating when the
rhythm in it is similar to the bodily
rhythms," he said.
Dr. Altshuler pointed out that mu-
sic should be played which matches
the patient's mood and tempo if best
results are to be obtained. After
contact through music has been es-
tablished, a gradual change to a
different tempo or mood can be
madse, he said.
"In causing this change in they
mood of the patient music has ob-
viously accomplished something the
spoken word or suggestion could not
have done," he asserted.
The power of music lies not only
in its educational aspects, social dy-
namics and aesthetic values; but it
possesses, because of the direct in-
fluence upon the soma, nervous and
encocrine systems, therapeutic prop-
erties, Dr. Altshuler stated.

Newborn Infants

Newborn infants have been ob-

The newborn child is usually im-
mune up to several months of age to
measles, scarlet fever, poliomyelitis
and diptheria. Rheumatic arthritis
is encountered very rarely and even
undulant fever occurs less frequently
in infants than adults.
This age distribution may be due
to transmission of immune substances
from the mother to the infant, tissue

Haber cited a sample survey con-
ducted by the National Refugee Ser-

terprises initiated by recent refugees.
In almost all instances the goods pro-
duced were of a non-competitive
character and 75 per cent of the work-
ers were native Amercans, it was
Dr. Haber also discussed the voca-
tional retraining which tries to direct
refugees into occupations where jobs
are non-competitive.

America must establish naval, air
and submarine bases in Greenland
to provide military security and a
practical fighter-plane route to Eur-
ope, declared Professor William H.
Hobbs in an address yesterday to
the geology and minerology section
of the Michigan Academy of Science,
Arts and the Letters.
Since Greenland is a possession
of occupied Denmark, the United
States has the right to set up a
temporary government there under
the Act of Havana, he said. .
Dr. Hobbs, who has led several
University expeditions to the island,
described its ideal conditions for air
and water bases. Geologically it -is
a smooth, flat ice expanse, which
would provide excellent landing fa-
cilities for ski-planes. Thus short-
range military aircraft could fly to
Scotland via Newfoundland, Green-
land, and Reykjavik, Iceland, now
under British control. He also claimed
that the fjords on the southeastern
coast offer natural bases for sub-
Greenland, which lies just north,
Qf the main trans-Atlantic shipping
lanes. is a highly strategic threat to
vessels passing south of the island,
explained Professor Hobbs.
