PANEL DISCUSSION:
Piresident Faculty Analyze /
Role of Education in Society

Higher education has the in-
creasingly prominent role of pre-
paring students to think critically
and intelligently in a rapidly-
changing world, President Alexan-
der G. Ruthven and three fac-
ulty members concluded in a panel
discussion Tuesday on higher edu-
cation in present day society.
Prospective teachers in the
course "tCurrent Problems in
Higher Education" heard Presi-
dent Ruthven analyze the topic
from the viewpoint of an admin-
istrator, Prof. William Haber from
the position of an economist, Prof.
'Messiah' Tickets on
Sale at Burton Tower
Tickets for the two perform-
ances of Handel's "Messiah," to be
given Dec. 13 and 14. are now on
sale in the offices of the Univer-}
sity Musical Society, Burton Me-
morial Tower.
Four soloists, the University
Choral Union, a special orchestra
and Frieda Op't Holt Vogan, or-
ganist, will participate in the two
concerts. Lester McCoy, associate
conductor of the University Mu-
sical Society, will direct the per-
formances.

Harold Guetzkow from that of a
psychologist and Dr. Edward
Blakeman from that of a research
worker in religion.
Administrators' Objectivej
President Ruthven warned thatj
the common fault of colleges is
to become fixed in a mold and
disregard the "higher plateau to
which civilization is moving." He
named as the administrator's ob-
jective the educating of the public
to see the importance of higher"
education and to appreciate the
problems before it.
Higher education-s place is to
work toward a cooperating so-
ciety, develop skills in living to-
gether and rectify the lag of so-
cial sciences behind the physical
sciences, according to Prof. Haber.
Creation of Culture
The creation of culture is an
undeveloped area in higher insti-
tutions, Prof. Guetzkow said. This
basic, more penetrating function
has been subordinated to the
transmission of culture, he pointed.
out, declaring that the creative
aspect must be extended for a
fuller appreciation of life.
An orientation which will give
students a college education in
religion was advocated by Dr.
Blakeman.

Englis Food,
Fuel Situation
Critical--pelts
Fuel and food shortages in Eng-
land are appalling, according to
Prof. Elizabeth Spelts, voice in-
structor in the music school, who
recently returned from a concert
tour there.
Only an exceptionally good fruit
crop relieved the otherwise grave
food situation this summer. Prof.
Spelts said. During her seven-
week stay in England, Prof. Spelts
stayed with a London family and
"learned a great deal about Eng-
lish pluck in hard times."
Appearing jointly with Shirley
Turner, an American pianist
studying in England under a Yale
fellowship, Prof. Spelts, a soprano,
sang for informal concerts and
church recitals as well as her
seven-week concert series.
"Americans can help English
families by sending them food
boxes and good used clothing, es-
pecially woolens," Prof. Spelts
said. She added:
"The English have shown that
they have the pluck to weather
their troubles. They deserve the
best in friendliness and help from

White Crosses
Mark Hazard
Newberry Women
Complain of Yard
The white crosses in the Bar-
bour-Newberryryard are there for
a serious purpose-to call atten-
tion to "hazard" in the yard-and
not merely for publicity purposes.
"This is definitely not a mean-
ingless prank," a spokesman for
Newberry women said.yesterday.
"The pit left by workmen last
spring is dangerous. Just think
what might happen around ten-
thirty or so when someone's in a
hurry to get home!"'
"Not only that, but the whole
yard is unsightly with those
mounds. We've just wanted to
draw attention to that."
"Nobody here knows how to get
something done about the yard, so
we took steps of our own."
The Newberry spokesman said
they had considered writing to
"some Board" but they didn't
know which one. She said the de-
cision to plant the crosses arose
out of a "discussion" in which sev-
eral Newberry girls were involved.
Building and Grounds Superin-
tendent Walter M. Roth could not
be reached for comment.

HICKSVILLE, N. Y., Oct. 1-(/P)
-Doubling-up with the in-laws,
living in hall bedrooms with
"kitchen privileges" and other
housing shortage woes ended to-
day for about 250 veterans in a
pleasant stretch of Long Island
countryside.
It was "moving in" day at Is-
land Trees, a potato farm three
months ago and now the nation's
biggest post-war rental project.
It involves single houses where
6,000 families eventually will live
in new homes renting for $60 a
month.
The entire job, to be finished in
about a year, will involve an in-
vestment of $48,000,000. All of the
homes are for veterans. Levitt said
"the demand is for rental homes
now and that is what we are try-
ing to satisfy."

U.S. -Russian
Issue To Be
LectureTopic
Two Programs Will
Discuss Soviet Union
Russia, and the U. S.-Soviet
problem, will receive special treat-
ment during the 1947-48 Lecture
Course sponsored by the Oratori-
cal Association.
Opening number for the series
will be a debate on "Can Russia
Be Part of One World?" by Walter
Duranty and H. R. Knickerbocker,
October 25, and, as the fifth lec-
ture, Julian Bryan will present an
illustrated lecture, "Inside Russia
Today."
Duranty, who will take the af-
firmative, and Knickerbocker, who
will present the negative view,
both have spent many years in
Russia. They will debate the
question in light of all develop-
ments prior to the time the dis-
cussion takes place.
Previously, Duranty has taken
the view that Russia can be part
of one world if, without weakness
or appeasement, the English
speaking people will understand
Russia and its problems. Knick-
erbocker has stated that it is use-
less and dangerous to waste time
to convert the Soviet Empire to
our way of life.
Julian Bryan returned from
Russia last March with what is
believed to be the only full-length
color film ever taken by any
American in Russia. He spent
three months observing the work
of UNRRA as part of his trip.
Bryan's film will show collec-
tive farms, hospitals, Russian
homes, churches and synagogues,
factories and universities.
Season tickets for the complete
course of seven lectures are now
on sale at the Hill Auditorium box
office.
Library Will
Open Sundays
Starting Sunday students will
have all of 28 Sunday afternoons
in which to catch upton their out-
side reading or pursue their stud-
ies.
According to Samuel W. McAl-
lister, associate director of the
University Lbrary, the main
Reading and Periodical Rooms of
the General Library will be open
from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. every
Sunday afternoon during the fall
and spring semesters, except dur-
ing the holiday periods. Three reg-
ular members of the staff will be
on duty to assist students request-
ing information.
Books from other parts of the
building which are needed for
Sunday use will be available in
the Main Reading Room if re-
quests are made on Saturday of
an assistant in the reading room
where the books are usually
shelved.

In case you are stricken some
day by an attack of appendicitis,'
you may well find yourself re-
ferred to a funeral home in regard
to ambulance service.
This referral is the rule, for allI
emergency ambulance service, ex-I
cept accidents, is handled by the,
Staffan Funeral Home, which
maintains two ambulances for the
purpose. The University Hospital
has one ambulance which is used
exclusively to transport patients
between different units of the
Hospital.
Accident Service
People injured in accidents oc-
curring in Washtenaw County
are taken to either the University
Hospital or to St. Joseph Hospital
by the sheriff department am-
bulance, unless it is out on call.
In such a case, the Staffan am-
bulance is used.

Drivers for the Staffan ambu-
lance are University students who
work on a part-time basis. No doc-
tors or internes ride the ambu-
lance since the time consumed in
traveling from the site of the in-
jury to the hospital is so short
that little could be done to aid
the patient. The drivers must,
however, take a course in first
aid so that proper handling of the
patient is assured.
Emergency Cases
Most emergency calls involving
accidents take place after mid-
night, according to Jack Zoller,
director of the Staffan Home.
Appendicitis calls most frequent-
ly take place after meals, while
patients being discharged from
hospitals are taken care of in the
morning.
