Proposals Made fo
Changes in Churches'
Education Programni
Speaking before the research sec-
tion of the International Council of
Religious Education last week in
Chicago, Dr. Edward W. Blakemitn,
University religious counselor, advp-
cated that churches in their mission-
ary work shift their emphasis froin
"making converts" to "fusing cul-
"There are three distinct changes
necessary in religious education," the
counselor said. "First the family
should be made a teaching unitwith
the minister and church assuming
the role of training the parents.
"Second, there should be a frank
adoption of the sociological concept
of the community as opposed to the
ecclesiastical. In other words, reli-
gious teaching should be provided
upon the basis of social need, rather
than upon faith.
Cultures Should Fuse
"Third, the church should attempt
to fuse cultures rather than to win
converts. Indeed, one of the prob-
lems which the church should be
willing to face in the post-war world
will be the formation of an alliance
of all major religions in all countries:
the Hindu with the belief that no one
shall kill, the Mohammedan with its
doctrine of predestination, the Jew-
ish faith with its God of Law, and
Christianity with its Dedicated Per-
This proposal has been referred to
a new research group under the
direction of Dr. Gerald Knopf of
Iowa State Teachers' College.

Church Has New Responsibility
In welcoming the representatives
to the conference, Roy G. Ross, gen-
eral secretary of the Council, said,
"We must now give attention to the
new imperatives for Christian ser-
vice which accompany our anticipa-
tion of peace. The Church must cope
more effectively with those forces
which are responsible for the mount-
ing statistics of delinquency through-
out the continent. The neglect of our
childhood today is certain to produce
a subnormal citizenship and parent-
hood for tomorrow. This responsi-
bility is shared by the public school
and all other agencies for character
education. No program will be ade-
quate, however, except as it is groun-
ded, in a Christian concept of the
universe and of human relation-

Scholarship Is

Prof. Lee DiSCUSSes
Education in China
"Freedom, equality and security"
are the present-day aims of scholar-
ship, which means "scholarhood" as
well, Prof. Shao-Chang Lee said in
a speech Sunday at the Interna-
tional Center.
In his discussion of "Scholars in
China-Then and Now," Prof. Lee
said that scholars may come from
any of the four groups of Chinese
society--scholars, farmers, artisans
or tradesmen. They are respected
because they are believed to have
practical wisdom, knowledge of
world affairs and cool judgment in
times of national crises.
He explained that until recently
the Chinese scholars did everything,
that they did not specialize as do the
western scholars. But now they are
becoming "Americanized or Euro-
peanized" and often use the scien-
tific method of studying problems.
But he said the scholars of China
are now working under terrific hard-
ships. k
In discussing scholars more in gen-
eral he said that education is a life-
time process; it is liberal to the
opinions of others and attends more
to the spiritual than the physical
well-being. He said that people now
look to scholars for guidance and
leadership and that this constitutes
a great challenge to students of all
countries, for they are the growing

In an address prepared for deliveryg
at a Jackson Day dinner, Senators
Harry S. Truman (Dem., Mo.) to-

no demonstration to tell that a Dem-

would hamper, delay, and confuse
the conduct of the war, and perhaps
imperil the peace."

men. Every man in the group will
receive a medal for marksmanship.
The men fired with .30 caliber
Springfield rifles. All their prac-
ticing had been done with .22 caliber
Springfields and most of them had
never fired the heavier rifle before
going to Fort Custer.
Sunday the entire group went
through the infiltration course. Here
the men had to crawl 125 yards on
their stomachs under barbed wire
which was stretched about a foot
from the ground. At the time the
men were going through this course
machine-gun bullets were being fired
less than 36 inches above the ground.
The course was mined, but the
mines were surrounded by logs so
that no one would be on top of one
when it exploded. Dynamite was
used for the mines.
"The purpose of the course is to
accustom the men to actual fire,"
Maj. L. P. Warner, executive officer
of the 3651st S.U., said yesterday.
The men traveled to and from
Fort Custer in trucks. They left
here Friday afternoon and returned
Sunday night.
Maj. Warner and Lt. Melvin Fle-
gal, assistant plans and training
officer, were in charge of a group.
In a couple of weeks 17 or 18 more
men from the station complement
will go to Fort Custer to shoot the
range for a record and go through
the infiltration course.
