Church attendance on the Michi-
gan campus for the last three years'
has always been between 25 and 30
percent of the student body, a Bur-
Zau of Student Opinion record re-?
This year's poll shows that 25.8
percent of the student body went to
church on a representative Sunday.
No records of general church,'atten-
lance are available, but to equal the
campus figure 7000 Ann Arbor resi-
dents would have to attend the com-
munity's churches on a given Sunday.
Catholics Lead List
Various breakdowns of the results
make interesting reading. For ex-
ample, the poll shows that 70.4 per-
-ent of Catholics attend church on a
given Sunday as compared to 23.6
percent 6f Protestants, 7.7 percent of
Jews, and 10.8 percent of all others
questioned. Although only a quarter
of the campus attends churches on
a given Sunday, the poll indicates
that only 28.7 percent of the stu-
dents have never attended church
while at Michigan.
Contrary to popular conception,
woman are not better church-goers
than men; 26 percent of campus
males attend on a given Sunday and
only 25 percent of the women, the
poll indicates.
Considered from the point of view
of those who have never attended
church while at Michigan, the poll

"Then it would be ac in feresting
battle between excellent offensive op-
erations of the strong German army
and the equally effective rear-guard
action of a determined English mili-
tary machine," Dr. Kellogg observed.
At the present moment, Germany
is turning her attention to the in-
creasing action of British-led forces
in Libya which are now engaged in
mopping-up maneuvers and are rap-
idly encircling the northern coast of
Africa, he said.
"The German government is afraid
of a possible British attempt to land
troops in southern Europe and push
upward in a counter offensive. Hence,
the British campaign in Africa is a
constant source of irritation to Hit-
ler's future plans," Kellogg comment-
