term papers due before Christmas

Extending to all phases of cam-

will be observed this year for the
first time in 20 years.

grams- at other universities, the
plan has been pushed here by the
local Christian Student Directors
THE PROGRAM will open
March 6 with an all campus as-

provide for national leaders to
talk with students informally
in classrooms and in organized
houses. Business and profes-
sional men interested in reli-
gion will go into classes to show
the relationship between their
field and religion.
President Alexander Ruthven
will act as honorary chairman of
the program and Prof. Lewis Hop-

ment, is general chairman.
