TUESDAY, APRil 6, 1942.

Dr. Free Will Discuss Religion,
Archaeological Study Today

Dr. Joseph P. Free, well-known
archaeologist of Wheaton College,
will discuss the problem of "Archae-
ological Discoveries and Christian
Faith Today," at 8 p.m. today at
Rackham Lecture Hall.
Dr. Free has done post-graduate
work at the Oriental Institute of the
University of Chicago and has vis-
ited the Near East four times on ar-
chaeological expeditions. In 1939 he
was in Palestine taking part in the
excavation of King Solomon's sea-
port on the Red Sea, but was forced
to leave by the outbreak of the war.
His lecture, which- will be followed
by colored movies of his investiga-
tions, will deal with three principal
problems: "Can your faith stand the
searchlight of archaeological investi-
gation?; Has the spade affected our
attitude toward the Bible?; and crit-
ical theories in the light of 20th
century discoveries."
This is the second in a series of
lectures sponsored by the Committee,

for Dynamic Christianity, a non-
sectarian, student organization affil-
iated with the Student Religious

Association. Everyone in the house
knows what the letter says. It is a
note moved through International
Red Cross channels informing Agnes
that her parents and elder sister who
are in a Japanese concentration camp
in Manila are "alive and well."
Those impersonal Red Cross notes
are the only news Agnes has had of
her parents since Dec. 9. 1941. Every
month a cryptic note came. "Your
parents and sister are alive and well,"
that's all they ever said. She has not
been able to communicate with them.
They didn't even know she was mar-
Agnes, who had not seen her family
since she left the Philippines in July,
1941, to come to Michigan, bravely
changed her life after Pearl Harbor.
She immediately began working for'
her board and room at Stockwell, and
later Dean of Women Alice C. Lloyd
took her into her house. She also se-
cured employment at the University
Hospital as a ward helper.
Agnes' Alpha- Phi sorority sisters
will hold a memorial service Thurs.
at the sorority house for the "brav-
est girl we ever met." The Alnha Phis
will tell you that Agnes never com-
plained about her bad luck. She al-
ways had a big smile for everybody.
The day before the fire a local
photographer returned 'proofs of a
photograph of the young couple
which Agnes was to send to her par-
ents through a special arrangement
with the Red Cross. With it, now, will
go the news of her tragic death..
The funeral will be held at 12:30
tomorrow at St. Andrew's Episcopal
Church, E. Huron and N. State-
where only 12 days ago she was mar-

With the deadline for Hopwood
entries less than a week away, Prof.
R. W. Cowden, director of the Hop-
wood Awards, yesterday cautioned

iarize themselves with the rules gov-
erning the contest. All manuscripts
are due in the Hopwood Room, 3229
Angell Hall, before 4:30 p.m. Mon-
day, April 12.
"In the past some students, who
were not acquainted with the rules,
have turned in manuscripts which
were' rejected because they did not
conform to the regulations," Prof.
Cowden said. Booklets describing
the contest and regulations can be
obtained in the Hopwood Room.

"I doubt if there would be any
hope for consolidation between tailor
shops to help the situation," he said,
"unless the government should com-
pel it."t
Barth attributes the 25 per cent in-
crease in business since the war
started to the civilian worry about

clothes rationing as well as the in-
creased Army work.
Barth, who has been doing work
for the ROTC for the past six years,
has papers from the government
which allow him to sell to soldiers;
otherwise he would have been com-
pelled to go directly into a clothing
"The same situation arose in the
last war," Barth said, "but'then there
was no compulsion to do Army work.
"I guess the only solution is for
civilians to do their own sewing, even
if at the expense of pricked fingers
and seams that aren't too straight,"
he said.

Hayward was professor of elec-

present a resident of Kalamazoo.
"I am interested in preparing an
adequate program for post-war re-
building of University personnel,"
Hayward said. "There will come a
time of reconstruction which I be-
lieve will be very important to the
future of the University."

until 9 p.m. and two until 12 mid-
night at the present time, Christman
said. We have found. through a re-
cent canvass that workers are not
so interested in late hourse for the
purchase of food as' formerchandise,
he added.
The innovation of later hours at
many Ann Arbor stores for-the bene-
fit of Willow Run workers is a matter
of community cooperation, Christman
stated. The grocery and clothing ser-
vices have been hardest hit by the
labor shortage, and merchants .nd
store owners find it difficult to,keep
their help.
Christman proclaimed the experi-
ment a possible and tpromising solu-
tion to the 'problem of providing
hopping facilities for Willow Run
workers on a 9-hour, shift..

hereby created a World Education
Commission which shall have power
to plan and control all primary and
secondary education of youth below
the age of 18 years"
Member Sokwitne commented that
"British and American delegates of
this Congress particularly ignored the
responsibility of selling a hopelessly
idealistic scheme to their own govern-
ments and peoples. 'Heaven on earth'
rather than the best possible inter-
national government attainable in
our era seemed their goat"
Professor Hance of the Speech De-
partment, served as advisor on par-
liamentary procedure, while Bill
Meuhl, '43L, House Speaker, and Ho-
bart Taylor and George Liechty, '43L,
Committee Heads, helped in the prep-
aration of the Congress.
In praising the Congress, Dr. Ed-
ward Blakeman, Counselor of Religi-
ous Education,.. declared, "For a group
not specifically majoring in political
science, they showed a remarkable
grasp 'of the issues involved. If our
citizens would take a leaf out of the
book of this Congress, we might im-
prove upon what the fathers of these
students did after the last war."
