Early Talks with

ANNUAL MEETING:
Church Members Will Benefit
From Conference of Pastors

By ALICE JORGENSEN
Much dissatisfaction with the pres-
ent system of electing subjects would
be eliminated is students spent more
time discussing work for future sem-
esters with their academic counselors,
Prof. Arthur Van Duren, chairman of
Academic Counselors, said yesterday.
"If more students would come to
the Academic Counselors' Office
voluntarily at intervals throughout
the semester and not all rush at
once during the last week, our prob-
lem would be greatly reduced," he
said.
Pointing out the problem faced by
the Counselors' Office as a result of
increased enrollment, Prof. Van Dur-
en said that at present each coun-
selor is responsible for 300 students.
"The ideal apportionment to each
counselor would be no more than 125,"
he said.
At present, the office is operating
with a staff of 11 counselors, of whom
two, Prof. Arthos and Prof. Thuma,
both recently discharged from the
Armed Forces, advise veterans exclus-
ively. With a possible enrollment of
Peace ...
(Continued from Page 1)
people would welcome an interna-
tional exchange program.
Dr. James Kenna, pastor of thec
First Methodist Church, declare
there is "no way people can learn to
live together without actually living
together."
Endorsing the mass student-ex-
change program, Dr. Kenna said it
will not only result in "personal bene-
fits to the individual student, but in
greater benefits to the world in last-
ing peace.".
"The more people live together, the
more they will forgive one another,'
he said.
Scott Miyakewa, American-born
Japanese, said that Pearl Harbo
was "a monument to American bigo-
try," because some of our military
leaders were "contemptuous of Jap-
anese military leaders."
He said that no leader can defend
America, who does not "understan
other peoples' minds and know what
they are thinking."
He blamed American "racism" for
our failure to understand the Japa-
nese people's "strengths and weak -
nesses," and endorsed the student ex
change program as "a good national
defense."
Miyakewa is assistant to Dr. Ed-
ward Blakeman, University religious
counselor.
Chilean-born Enrique Rogers
'46E, said student exchange was also
desirable on a "dollars and cents
basis. Through foreign study, differ-
ent peoples can understand each
others' technology and contribute to
increased living standards, he said.
He looked to the exchange program
to rid Americans of their "laugh" at-
titude toward the lower standards of
living of other nations.
Steel.
(Continued from Page 1)
to sanction a rise of more than $2.50
The Murray-Fairless negotiations
ended after more than eight hours oI
discussions at the White House.
Charles G. Ross, the President's
secretary, said that he could not di-
vulge a "word about the proposal'
which the President had made.
Fairless and Murray left the Whit
House by different exits. Murray
told a reporter he was "not coming
back."
The CIO chief, who appeared to be
in an ill humor, did not explain
whether he meant that he was not
comning back today or that the White
House discussions were definitely fin-

(shed.
He had postponed the threatened
strike of 800,000 steelworkers, which
could cripple reconversion, until 12:01
a.mn. on Monday at the President's
request pending the negotiations. It_
was originally set for last Monday,
and last weekend saw some stoppage
of steel production as a consequence.
Murray meanwhile called leaders of
General Motors strike and the elec-
trical workers strike at General Mo-
tors, General Electric and Westing-
house, as well as the top men in his
own steelworkers union to a strategyi
meeting tomorrow morning.
Murray has held several such con-
ferences in preparation for concerted
action by the CIO's three biggest
unions.

2,500 new veterans in the spring term,
most .of whom will come through the
Academic Counselors' Office, their
task will be increased. "Not only is it
difficult to find personnel willing to
undertake the responsibility", Prof.
Van Dburen said, "but the small size
of our quarters prevents expansion."
He added that when the proposed
administration building is completed,
the counselors will be able to move
Gerard To Lecture . .
Dr. Ralph Gerard of the physiol-
ogy department of the University of
Chicago Medical School will present
two lectures Monday in the Rackham
Amphitheatre.
The first, scheduled for 4:15 p.m.,
is sponsored by the Zoology depart-
ment and will be on the subject of
'The Electrical Activities of the
Nervous System". The second lecture,
at 8 p.m. is entitled "A Biologist Looks
at Society" and is sponsored by Phi
Sigma, zoological and biological fra-
ternity.
Western Party .* .
Barn dancing, social dancing,
group singing and refreshments will
highlight a Western party to be
given at 7:30 p.m. today at the
Newman clubroom. A regular busi-
ness meeting will precede the party,
which all members are urged to at-
tend in costume.
Hillel Services . .
Sabbath eve services will begin at
7:15 today at B'nai B'rith Hillel
.oundation.
The services are being held early,
or the convenience of those wishing
~o attend the ileifetz concert.
Vet I surowe . *
Veterans in the Schoel of Busi-'
ness Administration will partici-
pate in a broadcast intended to
clarify points in GI insurance
which have proved puzzling to vet-
erans at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

their quarters to Angell Hall.
Prof. Van Duren also pointed out
that much time-consuming clerical
work is handlkd through the office.
Absence reports, tabulation of
grades and credits and the adminis-
tering of academic discipline are
recorded by the girls who assist in
the office.
As a result of each counselor having
300 students to advise at least twice
a year, counselors are forced to spend
mest of their time helping poor stu-
dents and rarely see those whose
grades are satisfactory, "This is our
biggest weakness," Prof. Van Duren
reiterated. He said that the really
serious and conscientious student will
sometimes spend an hour or more
arranging his program with his coun-
selor
When speaking oi the group re-
quirements, Prof. Van Duren said
the social science group requirement
comes nearer to fulfilling its orig-
inal purpose than the other two.
More students take more hours of
social studies by choice than take
subjects in groups I and 11.
On the other hand, students can
avoid the real purpose of the group
science requirement by electing sci-
ence courses that provide no practical
experience in the scientific method.
As for the language requirement, Van
Duren, himself a language teacher,
expressed the sentiment that the av-
erage language student doesn't get to
the point where he can use a foreign
language effectively after only one
year of study.
This year, to alleviate the last min-
ute rush, the counselors' office plans
to notify the students to make ap-
pointments to discuss their elections
for the spring term well in advance of
the semester's close. "If theis scheme
proves satisfactory," Prof. Van Duren
said, "it will become a regular part
of our program."
Prof. Ralph Hammett
Op eIs Planners' Institute
Prof. Ralph W. Hammett of the
School of Architecture and Design
opened the Home Planners' Institute
in Grand Haven yesterday with a lec-
ture entitled "Designing the Home."
Prof. Hammett's address was the
first in a series of lectures on home
planning to be held in the Grand
Haven High School auditorium.

A large number of Michigan's more
than two million church members
receive the benefits of the Michigan
Council of Churches, which, in co-
operation with the University Exten-
sion Service is sponsoring the Seventh
Annual Michigan Pastors Confer-
ence Monday through Wednesday in
Ann Arbor.
The interest of the University in
the leadership of various fields, and
the fact that the University has no
contact with the ministerial profes-
sion through its graduates as it does
in the field of medicine or law prompts
the Extension service to sponsor such
conferences," according to Dr. Edward
W. Blakeman, Counselor in Religious
Education. "Through these meetings
and similar meetings with other
groups, we maintain a speaking ac-
quaintance with the profession."
Council Has Eight Departments
The Council, composed of leaders
of the Protestant faiths, is divided
into eight departments: Christian ed-
ucation, public affairs, local coun-
cils, comity, Christian colleges, per-
sonnel finance and family life.
Included under the department of
Christian education are programs de-
voted to adult education, training of
religious teachers, establishment of
youth camps and the standardization
of qualification for lay teachers.
Social movements and political re-
form are dealt with through such pro-
grams as the symposium to be held
at 8 p.m. Monday in the Rackham
Lecture Hall on "The Church and
Industrial Conflicts." This falls under
the department of public affairs.
Local Councils in Larger Cities
Many of the larger cities have
local councils, Ann Arbor's two-year

old branch being one of the youngest,
while Detroit's 20 year old establish-
ment is one of the oldest.
Cooperation between community
churches of differing faiths is main-
tained through the comity depart-
ment. In some cases, where the com-
munity is small, two services are
combined under one pastor and in
one edifice although the individual
doctrine of each is still observed.
Michigan has several Christian col-
leges: Albion and Adrian founded
under the Methodist faith; Hillsdale
and Kalamazoo under the Baptist;
Hope and Calvin under the Reformed,
and Missionary under the Adventist.
These, in addition to three Catholic
institutions provide the religious
higher education of the state.
Personnel department Selects Officers
The personnel department is re-
sponsible for the selection of officers
for the parent institutions. The fi-
nance department handles an average
yearly turnover of from five-and-one-
half to six million dollars. Three-
fourths of this amount goes to local
enterprises, while the remainder is
allocated to missionaries throughout
the world.
Family life institutes are conducted
in various places throughout the
state.
Locker To House Men
MT. PLEASANT, Jan .17-(P)-
Fifty men will be housed in Alumni
Field locker house next semester at
Central Michigan College, authorities
said today, and students in all dormi-
tories would be increased by one-
third, as; a means of providing addi-
tional living quarters.

SCENE FROM "FAUST"-Henry Austin (left) as Mephistopheles and
Guy Baker as Faust are pictured above as they appear in the garden
scene from Gounod's "Faust" which is being present at 3:00 p.m. today
aind 8:30 p.m. tomorrow in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.

Pictures, Papers of Ann Arbor
Shown in Rackham Building

Ann Arbor as it used to be when
businessmen used "tradecards" for
advertising and the University had
only seven building is the subject of
papers now on exhibit in the Mich-
gan Historical Collections, 160 Rack-
ham Building.
Starting with pictures of Ann Ar-
bor's founder, John Allen, and his
wife, one of the Ann's for whom the
town was named, the exhibit depicts
life in Ann Arbor from 1824 to 1864.
The tradecards shown in the exhibit
are about the size of postcards and
utilize everything from crude humor
to a carefully drawn picture of a bril-
liant pink satin slipper with a rose
in it.
One of the glass cases contains a
program for an 1862 grammre school
"Exhibition", listing 41 speeches and
poems. Also in the exhibit is a letter

expressing alarm at the amount of
money she had'to pay for household
goods, written by Mrs. Lucretia Felch
to her husband, who later became
governor of Michigan. A study of her
letter, however, reveals that she had
to pay only $15 for 400 pounds of
pork, while the Day Book of the Ann
Arbor General Store lists a pair of
morroco shoes at $2.
Next to an 1839 book of assessments
is the subscription list of the "Signal
of Liberty", compiled in 1848. It was
this newspaper which heralded the
anti-slavery movement in Michigan.
The exhibit will be open from 8 to
12 a.m. and from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
during January and February.

BEAUTIFUL!
- , HOMIDAL!

Right now is the best time of the year
to give yourself a well-earned, much-
needed vacation - for many reasons.
It's the least crowded time of the whole
year for transportation, with more room
on Greyhound buses bound for almost
any part of the U. S. A. or Canada.
A vacation is most welcome of all in
midwinter - when you really need
respite from cold weather monotony

and the strains of four war years!
Your winter trip to the sunny South
or West - to friends or family in
nearby towns - to popular snow-sport
resorts -- will be warm and comfort-
able aboard a Greyhound highway
coach. Fares, as always, are lowest
for any type of . transportation. Go
soon and go Greyhound - for a pleas-
ant, relaxing winter trip.

LIFETIME
OF LOVE _
AND
ADVENTURE! 4

IT'S STILL WISE TO PLAN AHEAD:

" Travel in midweek when possible
