finished their university work in the
educational institutions of South
America. Discussion followed each
lecture, led by different members of
the University faculty.
The lecture series was organized
and planned by Dr. Esson M. Gale,
director of the International Center

Annual Conference To
Be Attended by 350
More than 350 ministers represent-
ing Churches throughout Michigan
are expected to attend the annual
Pastors' Conference to be held Jan.
21-23 on the University campus.
Sponsored by the University Ex-
tension Service and the Michigan
Council of Churches and Christian
Education, the conference will be
highlighted by a series of four lec-
tures by Dr. Paul J. Tilliech.
Forums will be held on the follow-
ing topics: "Education Programs of
the Church," "The Evangelistic Pro-
gram of the Church" and "Social
Action Program of the Church."
"Scientists, in general, have ex-
pressed themselves as being opposed
to secrecy that will develop ill-will
among nations" Dr. E. F. Barker,
nead of the physics department,
stated in a recent interview.
He explained that the scientists

Dr. Barker emphasized America's
dependence on fission, the type of ex-

repeated Dr. Barker's warning when
they declared, "The greatest secret
in connection with the atomic bomb
was the fact that it was possible to
develop it successfully. Other coun-
tries should be able to produce
atomic bombs in two to five years."
Dr. Barker expiained, "Many sci-
entists would have been relieved if
they could have proved that this
weapon was impossible to produce.
Science wants to bring knowledge,
not annihilation, to mankind."
