University FM station WUOM
will offer "complete coverage" of
campus activities when it begins
operation early next year.
Show University Life
"We want to portray the Uni-
versity as it is, both from a cul-
tural and social standpoint," Prof.
Abbot says.
From the schemes already piling
up in Prof. Abbot's "suggestion
box," it looks as though the cam-
pus is going to be given "slice-of-
life" treatment by WUOM on a
par in originality and interest
with any college station in the
Suggestions for on-the-spot
broadcasting of League and Un-
ion dances, sports events, pep ral-
lies, fraternity and sorority sings,
student-faculty debates, Student
Legislature meetings, provocative
discussions and club meetings are
already being considered.
Prof. Abbot claims he is even
toying with the idea of student-
given talks on "What I Learned
Today." He says he's afraid, how-
ever, that they'd. be limited by
amount of subject matter to five
Flexible Schedule
WUOM will operate on a flexi-
ble schedule until its new studios
in the General Service Building
are completed. Prof. Abbot ex-
plained that broadcasting hours
will be shifted, if necessary, to fit
the timetables of events to be
He pointed out that inasmuch
as most of WUOM's potential mil-
lions of listeners will be outside
campus, it's especially important
that programs present a realistic
version of life along the Diag.
Student suggestions for programs
dealing with details of little-publi-
cized campus activities, as well as
"big-time" affairs, will be espe-
cially valuable, he added.

When a gale blows up, the old
U.S.S. North Hall, veteran ship
of the University fleet, rides it out
as spray lashes its five inch gun,

The forward gun, 38 caliber, can
make a direct hit on a battleship

ship rolls a trifle but no one has

Religious Instruction Is Task
Of Church, Edmonson Says

T o Discuss
Soviet Issue
Two veteran journalists, Walter
Duranty and H. R. Knickerbocker,
will launch a wide-open debate on
the Russian problem at 8:30 p.m.,
Thursday, in Hill Auditorium.
Duranty, who spent many years
as a correspondent in Russia, and'
who has written several books on
the country, will support the af-
firmative of the question, "Can
Russia Be Part of One World?"
'Friendly Russians'
Duranty's position is that Rus-
sia has swung away from its plan
to convert the remainder of the
world to Communism. He explains
that the Russian people are
friendly toward the United States,
and that Russia wants security
just as much as this country.
Knickerbocker, who will op-
pose Duranty in the debate, is
also a Pulitzer Prize winning
newspaper man and veteran of
many years reporting from Russia
and other parts of Europe and
Knickerbocker's Position
Russia desires to expand by im-
perialistic motives under a typi-
cal totalitarian government,
Knickerbocker has said. The
United States must remain a bul-
wark against this threat, accord-
ing to the journalist.
Tickets for the debate, first lec-
ture to be presented by the Ora-
torical Association in the 1947-48
Lecture Course, may be obtained
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday at the Hill Auditorium
Box Office. Prices are $.60, $.90
and $1.20.
Season tickets for the entire
seven-lecture course, which will
include other discussions of for-
eign affairs, theatrical life and
literature also may be purchased

Religious instruction of youth
remains the primary task of the1
church and must not become iden-
tified with the public schools,
Dean J. B. Edmonson, of the edu-
cation school points out in the
October issue of the School of
Education Bulletin.
Citing the current attempts of
church groups to reach more chil-
dren through the schools in an
article entitled, "Religious Edu-
cation - Whose Responsibility?"
Dean Edmonson declares, "If our
Senior Pictures
Proofs of senior 'Ensian pictures
taken before Oct. 10 are now ready
at the Student Publications Build-
ing, Barbara Gray, 'Ensian busi-
ness manager, has announced.
Urging seniors to select the
proof they want to appear in the
'Ensian now, Miss Gray added
that proofs of pictures taken after
Oct. 10 should be picked up one
week later.

public schools are to be acceptable
to all denominations, every effort
must be made to avoid their use
for religious teaching."
It is this system, he writes,
which has solved the problem of
educating children of diverse re-
ligious origins in a spirit of friend-
liness and unity.
All proposals thus far submitted
for religious instruction have pre-
ferred one group above another
and also threaten the principle of
the separation of church and
state, he says.
To meet this genuine problem
of the churches, Dean Edmonson
suggests the formation of com-
munity boards to coordinate the
work of the churches and to im-
prove theattractiveness of their
programs. The board should be
composed of influential laymen
from the various churches who
would promote religious education
on a community scale, the article
