Rabbi Kaplan
Speaks Here
On Judaism
The necessity for change in the
attitude of the Jews themselves and
the non-Jews toward Jewish religion
and Judaism, was emphasized by
Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan in the am-
phitheatre of the Rackhapn Building
Rabbi Kaplan was the second
speaker in the Hillel Forum Series.
He is the leader of the Reconstruc-
tionist movement, professor of Homi-
letics at the Jewish Theological Sem-
inary in New York, author of "Ju-
daism as a Civilization", and "Ju-
daism in Transition."
When questioned as to the purpose
of the Reconstructionist movement,
Rabbi Kaplan said, "If there was one
way of interpreting our purpose, it
is this-we Jews cannot do without
Judaism, we cannot do with it, as
it has been transmitted to us in the
oast, we must therefore make it
what it should be."
The Jews must rid themselves of
their fear of anti-Semitism. "This
problem is one which only the non-
Jewish world can solve," continued
Rabbi Kaplan, "and nothing we Jews
do will weaken anti-Semitism,."
The Jews should concentrate on
making Jewish life itself beautiful,
interesting and inspiring by encour-
aging creative Jewish effort, and he
cited Palestine as an example of
what the Jews have done in this
field. Jewish art, writing and music
must be developed as it is in this
way that the Jewish religion will be
developed. The Jewish religion is
the manifestation of Jewish life, "the
Jewish people without a religion
would be as an individual without
a character," Rabbi Kaplan said.

In Union Today

There's an old saying along the
Charles River that the son of a Har-
vard man goes either to Harvard or
to jail but neither alternative ap-
pealed to James R. Conant. '44, who
decided last August to spend his
college career here in Ann Arbor.
Conant, incidentally, enjoys the
reputation of being the son of No. 1
Harvard man James B. Conant, pres-
ident of the nation's oldest univer-
sity, but even that could do nothing
to dissuade the 17-year-old fresh-
man from coming to Michigan.
"Dad had nothing to say at all
about what school I was going to,"
Conant declared in an interview yes-
terday, "I just told him I was coming
here and waited for him to say OK.
All he did," Conant continued, "was
to tell me that I was boss and that
Michigan was certainly a good
enough school for anyone."
A graduate of Phillips Exeter Acad-
emy, Conant has lived all of his life
in New England andfor that reason
decided to go to school in the Mid-
West. "And as long as I was going
out here I decided that the Univer-
sity was the plac to go," he said.
Unlike his father who is known
as one of the leading chemists in
the world, young Conant is inter-
ested in the social sciences and plans


Religious Preference
Shows Small Change

The religious census of the Coun-
selor in Religious Education shows
that student religious preference has
undergone little change during the
last several years.
This year's census lists the Meth-
odist, Presbyterian, Catholic, Jew-
ish and Episcopal faiths, in that
order, are the leaders. This same
group has led for the last five years,
although there has been a change of
the relative positions within the




to enter law school when he grad-
uates. As yet, however, he has not
made up his mind whether Michigan
or Harvard would give him the better
law training.
Although he has lived here only
a. short time he has become excep-
tionally fond of his new environ-
ment. "I was 'too-much' a product
of the East when I came here," he
said, "and am glad of the oppor-
tunity to meet new types of people."
Conant was recently appointed as
editor-in-chief of the Michigan Po-
laris, official publication of the Naval
Reserve Officers' Training Corps, to
succeed John Robbins. '44E.
