Vlastos Says
Ability To Act
Ldies In Faith
Final Skepticism Lecture
Delivered Here Sunday
By VisitingDoctor
"There is more ground for hope
now than there ever was."
With these words, Dr. Gregory
Vlastos, professor of philosophy at
Queen's University, Kingston, On-
tario, concluded the final talk of the
series, "The Failure of Skepticism?"
Sunday in Rackham Lecture Hall,
under the joint auspices of the New-
man Club, Hillel Foundation and In-'
After referring to the dictionary
definition of skepticism, '. . . doubt
of and unbelief in formal religious
faith," Dr. Vlastos declared that this
was not the skepticism with which he
was concerned. "The most sinister
form," he said, "is the skepticism
which is not explicit in its skepti-
cism." Vlastos spoke of people who,
though "they believe an axiom, dis-
believe it in action."
He referred to the Chamberlains
and the Lavals as statesmen who
were representatives of a people who'
had no faith in their ideal, demo-
cracy. They were afraid to act,
stated Dr. Vlastos, because they had
no faith. They thought only of them-
selves, and in their egocentricity lost
the proper perspective.
"Ability to act in face of danger
rests in faith; faith, not as a substi-
tute for reason, but as a preserver
of reason," declared Vlastos.

The Hopwood judges are sharpen-
ing up their literary decisions for the
Jan. 27 deadline of the forthcoming
freshman contest.
For the eleventh consecutive year
since Avery Hopwood, '05, play-
wright-author, bequeathed one-fifth
of his estate to the University for the
encouraging of creative work in writ-
ing, the freshman contest has offered
prizes to eligible literary hopefuls.
According to the terms of the
1922 will, the Regents are empow-
ered "to use the income . . . as
prizes to be known as the 'Avery
Hopwood and Jule Hopyvood Prizes,'
to be awarded annually to students
in the Department of Rhetoric
(later including all students en-
rolled in English composition
courses) . .. who perform the best
creative work in the fields of dra-
matic writing, fiction, poetry, and
the essay." Hopwood further
stressed "that the new, the unusual,
and the radical shall be especially

Takes More

YES, it takes more than a smile to have a pleasing personality. One of
the most important factors in having a pleasing personality is that of
having PERSONAL CLEANLI NESS. If your clothes don't have the clean look
which they need, let the Ann Arbor Laundries do your laundry for you.
Be certain of your personal appearance and make sure that you send your
laundry to the Ann Arbor Laundries this week.
Look at the sample student bundle below to see how economical
it is to have your laundry done by the Ann Arbor Laundries, with their
