t Junior To Win
e Cooley Cane
Blanquet To Honor
Oratorical Efforts
A very smooth and sophiticated
cane, seasoned with age and a col-
orful past, will be presented to
the oiliest-tongued Junior class
speaker at the 18th annual Tung
Oil Banquet.
The event, sponsored by Sigma
Rho Tau, honorary engineering
speech society, will be held at 6:15
p.m. Friday at the League. Main
feature will be presentation of
awards to faculty and student
speakers for polished oratorical
efforts, and most celebrated of
these awards is the Cooley Cane.
Present of Dean
Presented to the stump speaker's
society over fifteen years ago by
Dean Emeritus Mortimer E.
Cooley, this trophy has few rivals
on campus when it comes to color-
ful and rich traditional back-
To attest to its longevity, the
records say that this particular
stick dates back to the early days
of the University, when a picket
fence with a cow-proof gateway of
staggered posts guarded the sacred
grounds of learning from wander-
ing cattle. It seems that along.
around 1890 the fence was taken
down by the building and grounds
department, and Dean Cooley,
at that time a professor in me-
chanical engineering, happened to
fall in line for one of the canes
that were made from the old fence.
Trusty Companion,
Becoming his trusty companion,
the cane went everywhere that'
Dean Cooley went, to foreign
lands and across the country on
speaking tours. If it could speak,{
it would undoubtedly be able to
tell many secrets of political im-
portance, of naval warfare and ofl
student life.
When Dean Cooley became a
member of Sigma Rho Tau in'
1930, he presented this last rem-
nant of ancient college days to the
society. Since then, the cane has
had its "day" each year, being pre-
sented to the outstanding junior,
who carries it throughout his sen-
ior year.
Vet Refresher
Class Dropped
Due to the small number of vet-p
eran applications to the Univer-
sity, particularly in the fresh-
man class, there will be no pre-s
term refresher program for the
fall term, the Veterans Service Bu-r
reau announced yesterday.
Upper classmen who desire re-
fresher work before returning to R
the University may review courses i
in the regular summer session forr a
refresher credit and recive govern- A
ment sugsistence, provided they R
have not had other academic work
since their release from the armed
forces. t
Veterans entering college for the e
first time will be urged to review R
subjects through their local high
schools or in correspondence
The Polonia Club will hold its A
annual "Polish Night" program at c
3 p.m. Sunday in the Union Ball- I
room. d
The program will include films,
a brief lecture on Polish culture,
and a presentation of songs and p
dances by the Lira Society.-s

Chaplain Uroes More Stress
On Religion For Universities

Religion belongs at the very
center, rather than at the peri-
phery, of university education, ac-
cording to the Rev. Dr. J. Clemens
Kolb, chaplain of the University
of Pennsylvania and lecturer in
Christian ethics.
"Universities must shoulder
their share of the responsibility
for providing moral leadership in
the world," Dr. Kolb said. "The
age of indifference is gone, and in
the future, education will have to
be as concerned with training the
morals of the most gifted youth as
it is with training them for a ca-
Here for Conference
Dr. Kolb has been in Ann Arbor
as leader of the fourth annual
Holiday House conference of the
Canterbury Club, Episcopal stu-
dent organization. He also spoke
informally at a luncheon attend-
ed by chaplains of the student re-
ligious guilds.
The position of chaplain of the
university was established at
Pennsylvania in 1932, by Dr.
Thomas S. Gates, who gave up a

partnership in the J. P. Morgan
corporation to become president
of that school.
President Gates felt. according
to Dr. Kolb, that the main prob-
lem of education was it; lack of
a focal point around which it
might swing. "Religion was the
only center strong and deep
enough to give education the di-
rection and guidance it needed,"
Dr. Kolb said.
Chaplain at Pennsylvania
As chaplain of the University of
Pennsylvania, with its 10,000 full-
time and 9,000 part-time students.
Dr. Kolb is a member of the board
of trustees and the committee on
student affairs, and also teaches a
two-hour course in Religious Ori-
entation. He directs monthly
chapel services, which are not
compulsory, but which are some-
times attended by as many as 2,-
200 students.
The religious program at Penn-
sylvania has made the students
see that the various faiths have a
great deal more in common than
they had realized, Dr. Kolb said. It
also gives them confidence that
religion is intellectually respect-
able and defensible, and makes
them see that the university is in-
terested in them as people, not
just as money-making units, he

As Orientat iwon A visors
John Quimby, chairman of
men's orientation, has announced
that students wishing to serve as
orientation advisors for the fall
term must register today at Rm.

Library Asks
For Old Books
Books which outlive their use-
fullness to individual students at
the end of this term will make
a welcome contribution to the
Angell Hall lending library.
The study hall library has been
providing many wholly or partial-
ly self supporting students with
their books needs since its in-
ception in 1937. Most of these
books have been purchased by the
library for this purpose but it
still depends for a large share of
them on student contributions.
For One Semester
Upon recommendation of the
academic counselor for freshmen
and sophomores or Assistant Dean
Peake for juniors and seniors.
working students may have books
charged to them for one semester
with the privilege of renewal. The
study hall stacks consist of books
for courses in every college and
school in the University. In the
event that the requested books is
not available, the library will pro-
cure it as soon as possible.
Over 1600 Books
The present collection consists
of over 1600 texts and about 70
additional works are purchased
each term. A total of 41 students
have availed themselves of the li-
brary's stacks this semester.
In view of the anticipated fall
enrollment above all previous
years, Dean Peake has expressed
the hope that the enormous de-
mand for textbooks will be met
through student and student
group donations.
