Religious Side
Of Learningv
Is Discussed
Blakeman Speaks
At Oberlin Meeting
The five attitudes of American
educators toward religion were des-
cribed last night at Oberlin College
by Edward W. Blakeman, University
religious counselor.
Speaking to the Religious Educa-
tion Association of the United States
and Canada, Dr. Blakeman said, "Re-
ligion at the University of Michigan
is treated as a field of scholarship,
but the courses cut through the vari-
ous departments rather than being
seperately organized."
Explains Position
"Religion, as such," he pointed out,
"is as permissable in the curriculum
of state institutions as political sci-
ence. It is the sectarian emphasis in
the one case and partisan bias in the
other which is excluded from the
teaching schedule of state educators."
Dr. Blakeman contrasted the
Michigan Approach which is also
identified with the Universities of
California and Indiana, with four
different attitudes reflected in the
major institutions of other states.
Cultural Aspect
At the Universitiies of Virginia,
Tennessee and Missouri, he stated,
the various faiths carry on religious
education off campus and secure uni-
versity credit for the courses they
Citing the "bold approach" of the
University of Oregon, Iowa State Col-
lege and Armos College, Dr. Blakeman
also described the departments of
religion these schools have set up.
A Fifth Approach
A fifth approach, he said, is com-
plete exclusion of religious themes
from the curriculum. Some univer-
sities adopt this attitude, he asserted,
because of "fear that some citizens
may maintain that all presentations
of religion must of necessity be open
to the charge that it is 'secretarian'.
"By the same token," he said, "pol-
itical science would be excluded as
a means of evading the consideration
of political parties."
Prof. Kennedy
Will Lecture
Dr. Clarence H. Kennedy, professor
of zoology, will speak on "The Evolu-
tion of the Society from the Family"
at 4:30 p.m. and on "The Evolution
of Human Transportation as Shown
by the Evolution of the Automobile"
at 8 p.m. today in the Rackham
The lectures are under the joint
sponsorship of the Graduate Stu-
dent Council and Phi Sigma, honor-
ary biological fraternity.
A reception for Dr. Kennedy will
follow his second lecture. Both ,talks
are open to the public.
U of Houston Opens
Guatemalan Center
In an initial endeavor to establish
an English speaking center for the
study of Latin American social con-
ditions, the University of Houston is
opening its first Summer Center at
Guatemala June 3, and invites all
college students to attend.
The study center in Guatemala
will feature courses in English on
social, economic, and cultural condi-
tions in Guatemala.
Further information may be ob-

tained by writing Doctor Joseph S.
Werlin, director, at the University
of Houston, Houston, Texas.

"The best Gargoyle yet" is how
the senior board described this is-
sue. Comments from the junior
board indicated that that was not
such a difficult feat.
"The stories are in every re-
spect witty and in good taste," the
literary editor pointed out. "Some
of them," he hastened to add,
"even show flashes of mature un-
derstanding of world problems.
Some of the stories are funny.
Some of the stories are of a more

Stephenson To
Be Speaker at
Campus Rally
A 19 year-old war veteran, James
Stephenson, the victim of an attempt-
ed lynching in Columbia; Tenn. will
he the principal speaker at an all
campus rally,' co-sponsored by IRA
and MYDA, which will be held at 7:30
p.m. tomorrow in the Union.
The rally climaxes a drive held
this week by the two organizations
to inform the campus about the true
facts of the Columbia, Tenn. riots.
The trouble in that area started when
Stephenson attacked a white repair-
man who had insulted his mother.
A raid on the Negro district followed,
with police and citizens searching for
Sixty-eight Negroes were arrested.
During the time they were detained
in prison, two of them were shot to
death. They are now awaiting trial
and are unable to obtain a counsel.
Stephenson was released on bail and
fled north with his mother.
At the rally, ways will be deter-
mined to raise funds to send to the
Southern Conference of Human Wel-
fare, which is attempting to obtain
counsel for the defendants as well
as prevent future riots.

U' Fresh Air
Camp To Open
Jutly I1 =Tibbn.1it
Expanded Study 'T o
Be Offered 224 Boys
Summer outings for 224 boys from
Southeastern Michigan will be com-
bined with a workshop in human be-
havior at the University of Michigan
Fresh Air Camp when it opens July
1 for its 26th season.
The camp is now under the direc-
tion of the University's Institute for
Human Adjustment. This year, ac-
cording to Clark Tibbitts, director of
the Institute, the camp program will
include a greatly expanded study of
each boy and the reasons for his be-
havior or family maladjustment.
Supervised Play
But he hastened to add that this
study won't interfere in any way
with the four weeks of supervised
play and instruction in handicraft
which each of the boys will receive.
The camp is located on Patterson
Lake near Pinckney, 24 miles north-
west of Ann Arbor, with the 300
wooded acres of the camp property
and the 1,400 acre Edwin S. George
Reserve, a University owned preserve
for wild life, offering plenty of room
for daytime and overnight hiking
plus training in outdoor living.
Study Each Boy
The boys are referred to the camp
from social agencies in the south-
eastern part of the state, Mr. Tib-
bitts explained. Fifty counselors will
be on the camp staff to supervise the
activities and to make careful obser-
vation and study of each boy. From
the reports of the counselors, infor-
mation will be sent back to the var-
ious social agencies which will help
in ironing out behavior patterns or
family maladjustments during the
rest of the year.
The counselors will be graduate
students at the University taking
the summer coures in education,
sociology, and social work to be pro-
vided for the staff members at the
camp, Mr. Tibbitts explained. Most
of the counselors will be school teach-
ers or principals.
The camp will be open from July
1 to August 23 with the boys being
handled in two groups of 112 each.
Vet Hospital
Seeks Utilities
Asserting that the veterans admin-
istration should pay double the water
and sewer rates if public utilities were
provided for the veterans' hospital
here, Mayor William E. Brown Jr.
called for a "very careful study" of
the request by a city council com-
The tax-exempt Veterans Admin-
istration requested water and sewer
services, in addition to paving of
streets leading to, and adjining the
property, and fire protection for the
hospital. The proposed site of the
500-bed hospital is off Cedar Bend
Dr., with frontage on Broadway.

consists of Carnegie, a Scotch cap
perched on his head, watering a
