Scientifie Age'
To Be Subject
Of Hillel Talks
Morgan, Prof. Shepard
Will Lead Discussions
At Town Hall Meeting
Scientific progress and its relation
to religious thought will be discussed
at Hillel Foundation's Town Hall, to
be led by Kenneth Morgan, director
of the Student Religious Association,
and Prof. John F. Shepard of the
psychology department, at 8:15 p.m.
The subject, "Religion In an Age of
Science," 'will be introduced by the
members of the panel. Further dis-
cussion will come from the audience
in town hall fashion.
The question will involve a study of
whether religion has outlived its use-
fulness and what religious thought is
consistent with modern ideas.
The views of the scientist will be
represented by Professor Shepard,
whose experiments in the field of
psychology have gained wide notice,
and who teaches a course in the psy-
chology of religion.
Religious divergence from the
pragmatic views of science will be
furnished by' Mr. Morgan. Head of
the SRA, Mr. Morgan has wide
,knowledge of religious thought.

The man with the "Sweetest trum-
pet in the world," Charlie Spivak,
will return to the Purdue campus for
the Junior Prom April 17. Appearing
fob the second time this year, Spiv-
ak's outstanding popularity as a re-
sult of his work at the Homecom-
ing dance last Oct. 25 influenced
the committee in his favor.
Note to Matt Mann-Dick Pap-
enguth, Purdue swimming coach is
subject to an early draft call since
his number, 1817, was one of the
first drawn and was the second
number drawn of those held by [
Purdue students and faculty.
Five University of Wisconsin en-
gineers are in the running for the
honorary "St. Pat" title, to be be-
stowed at the engineering college's
annual dance Saturday. Despite the
varying growths of the plumages, the
title will probably be decided by what
is beneath the beards, as the judges
will be three of the campus beauties.
Only one of the five contestants is an
Illinois Senator "Curly" Brooks,
after being awarded a plaque nam-
ing him "One of the University's
most distinguished fighting Illini,"
in recognition of his World War I
services with the Marine Corps said
'War doesn't do anybody any good.
It's bound to get you physically
and mentally after a while. You
can't tell me there's a person any-
where who doesn't get a bit fright-
ened when he's being used as a tar-
get for all the enemy's fireworks."
C'iting the importanice of airpower
in peace and watrtime, hie said,
"We've got to air-condition Ameri-
ea for America's future living."
The first national network radio
program to be heard from the Audi-,
torium of Indiana University will be
presented today when Tommy Dorsey
broadcasts over the Mutual network
at 9:30 p.m. EWT on the Spotlight
Band Program. The broadcast will
be part of a swing concert to be pre-
sented under the auspices of the,
Council of Fraternity Presidents.

New Deadline
For Hopwood
Contest Is Set
Reminding University students
planning to enter the spring Hop-
wood contest that the deadline has
been advanced from April 22 to
April 13, due to the three semester

Inaugurated in the spring of 1931,
after Playwright Avery Hopwood, '05,
bequeathed his estate to the Regents
of the University "for the encourag-
ing of creative work in writing," the
Hopwood contest offers more prize
money than "any university in the
world gives to its students." In the
ten years the awards have been given,
they have amnouted to nearly $10,000
Any student enrolled in at least
one course of English composition
and rating "C" or better in each of
his courses, is eligible to submit en-
tries in the fields of dramatic writ-
ing, fiction, poetry and essay.
Qualified senior and graduate stu-
dents may compete for the major

money ranging up to $250 is offered
in the minor award division, open to
all undergraduates. Particulars may
be found in the contest pamphlet
available in the Hopwood Room, 3221

Technic Hit Hard By Priorities,
Shortage Of Advertisements

Wartime Demands Take
Toll Of Contributors,
To EngineMagazine
The war is striking home at The
Michigan Technic, engineering col-1
lege publication!
Already hard hit by priorities,
speeded-up production and the myr-
iad other elements of war prepara-
tion, The Technic is going to have
even tougher sledding next year, ac-
cording to the predictions of retiring
senior'editors Burr J. French, '42E,
and John S. Burnham, '42E.
Perhaps the problem of advertis-
ing, the life-blood of any publication,
is most serious. "National advertis-
ing is good and will probably remain,
so until after the war," Burnham.
noted, "but local advertising is being
snuffed out by either too much busi-
ness caused by expanding industries
near here or a lack of merchandise
caused by priorities."
Articles Department
An equally troublesome problem
arises in the articles department,
French observed. Formerly, The
Technic tried to balance the ratio of
articles written by students, faculty
members and industrial men from
the outside.
"We're on the spot now, however,"
he said. "The industrial men are all
in Washington, the faculty members
are all doing extra work for the de-
fense effort, and the students are
just too busy trying to keep up with
the speeded-uk curriculum.
Even with a third semester in the
summer, summer publication is out
of the question, it was pointed out,
because all national advertising con-
tracts are made on an eight-month
"The summer term is going to

have its effect," Burnham predicted.
"With students coming and leaving
at the middle of the year the new
staff is going, to have to devise some
sort of one-semester subscription
plan to supplement the full-year plan
now in operation."
Common to all organizations on
campus, the problem of staff appoint-
ments is also making itself felt.
Should appointments be made for
one semester, one year, or what plan
should be followed? "We don't know,"
the out-going editors admit.
Slide Rule Ball Job
The role of chairman of the annual
Slide Rule Ball has always gone to
The Technic editor-in-chief. "But
what about the man who serves from
March to the following February?"
the seniors ask. It was suggested that
maybe the date of the Ball might be
changed to the fall, but even that
would have its drawbacks.
Priorities, indirectly felt through
advertising, also make 'themselves
felt directly. The paper shortage is
obvious, but less apparent is the need
for chlorine, used for bleaching pa-
per. "The Technic will probably get
grayer as the war goes on," French
Meeting To Be Held
For Fliers Of Future
With the cumulative Washtenaw
County air corps quota. still unfilled,
an open meeting for men interested
in flight enlistments will be held at
7:30 p.m. Monday in the Union under
the auspices of the local Junior
Chamber of Commerce.
The meeting will feature sound
movies and a talk by Lieut. George
Conte, public relations director of the
traveling air corps examining board.
The examining board will return to
Ann Arbor next week.

Final blow to the dimming prestige
of Doug came whcn he appeared very,

Special attraction in the all male
show was Jane Connell, who is a
female of the species. While taste-
fully attired, Miss Connel neverthe-
less wore costumes which no red
blooded man would exactly like to be
seen in.
In cahoots with the attractive Jane
was one Hal Cooper who showed up
briefly several times during Zoot Suit
Stuff wearing what we hope was not
sold to him, but rather presented as
a gift by a fellow who could not pass
the Army color test.
Music for the occasion was sup-
plied by Tom Snyder's orchestra,
adding life to the show and confusion
to the plight of Doug Gould by play-
ing a Navy song when the model in
the Army uniform walked up the

and the clothes for the show, and

the prizes were displayed.
