Einstein ...0
(ontiut'd froml Page 1
"True enough1, physics also was
divided into separate fields, each
o( which was capable of devouring
a short lifetime of work without
having satisfied the hunger fo
deeper knowledge. Tie mass of
the experientially given and or the
insufficiently related was over-
whelming here also.
"IN THIlS FIELD, however, I
soon learned to scent out that
which was able to lead to funda-
mentals and to turn aside from
everything else, from the multi-
tudle of thinks which clutter up
the mind and divert it from the
essentials.
"The hitch, in this Wvas, o
course, the fat that oe haid to
cram all this stuff ito one's
mind for Ote xainations,
whether one liked, it o not.
"Thi~s coercion 'read such a de-
terring effect (upon me) that af-
ter' I had passed te final ex-
amination, I found the considera-
tion of any scientific problems
distasteful to inc for an entire
year.
"IT IS, in fact, Nothing short
of a miracle that the modern
methods of instruction ave not
yet entirely strangled the holy cur-
iosity of inquiry: for this delicate
little plant, aside from stimula-
tion, stands minly in heed of
freedom Without this it goes to
wreck and ruin without fail.
. It is a very gave ,mitake to
think that the enjoyment of
seeing and sewrehing can be
promoted by means of voeron
and a sense of' dutiy."
EINSTEIN wrote his autobio -
raphy---the only one hie has done-
in the winter of 1946-47. ieT
penned it in longhiand. He began:
"H Iere I sit in order to write,
at the age of 67, something like
Imy own opituary."*

Serve Coffee
It may not be tea time at the
business administration school
from 9:30 to 11:15 a~m., but start-
ing tomorrow, it will be coffee
time.
Sleepy eyed students, take note.
The Bus.Ad. council has found a
solution for painlessly opening
those eyes, and driving away mid-
morning hunger pangs.
Coffee and doughnuts may now
be purchased every morning in
the student lounge.
The kitchen facilities are but
one aspect of the potentially re-
markable conveniences in the stu-
dent lounges. Plans for the com-
plete decoration and furnishing of
both lounges will soon be drawn
up.
The primary aim of the inter-
ior decorator will be to make the
rooms comfortable and home -like.
All of which proves-school can
be fun.

CHAMPION OF CAUSES.
~Liflell Coordhiiaes ReligioutsGop

By ALLEGRA PASQUALETTI
(Dlaily Associaite Editor)

{i

"Belligerent champion of un-
popular causes--for instance reli-
gion," that's the way Franklin H.
Littell1, director of Lane ialt (de-
scribes himself.
Believing that religion is con-
cerned with all phases of life, he
emphasizes the relation between
religious conviction and commun-
ity iproblems. And during the five
years of his directorship Student
Religious Association has come
out of the sanctuairy to work on
such varied project s as the forma-
tion of the Student Legislature
and lOperation hairc ut.
AIVASWYIM . lPIA)iMA T, one of
Dr. Littell's chief tasks is achiiev-
ing greater cooperation among the
(campus religious groups,.lie was
responsible for the formation of
the campus Religious Council,
which is composed of the profes-
sional directors. This group meets
regularly to iron out, problems and
coordinate activities.
Dr. Littell believes that re-
ligion should be something more
than ia personal experience.
"It is an intellectually respect-
able frame of reference that has
somiethling to say about competing.
dogmas and doctrines." As suchi
hie consideirs it the cornerstone
of the true University.
Thils SPRING hie is expounding
t~lhi-I ie at 'McCormick Theolog-
icail Seminary in Chicago, where
hie teaches a seminar in "Religion
in IHigher Education."
Also intetrested in religious
history, his study of sectarian
Protestantism, "Thie Anabaptist
View of the Church," received
the biennial award of the Amer-
ican Society of Church History
in 194'7.
After rec eiVinig his FI.A. at Cor~-
nell College in Iowa, where his
father is p~rofessor of history, he
studied for his B.D. degree at U~n-
ion 'Theological Seminary. He took
his Ph.D. at "Yale.

proved flteold story that, phi
B~ete, are always grinds by
winning his letter in wrestling and
cross country, and by touring
throughout the country as a mem-
ber of Hie Senior Debate 'ream.
In recent years his athletic
activities have taken a milder
turn and he is known at the
FAculty ('ub for "reasonable
jwofieiene~v' ii billiards and
pool1.
Dr. Littell's other hobby is the
raising of small sock at his home
in Clinton. Pamnphlets on the care
and feeding of rabbits, hamsters
and guinea pigs are often found
protruding from his bulging brief
ease.
DESPITE THlE FACT that liv-
ing out of town keeps him away
from~ home a great deal his wife
doesn't find time hanging on her
hands. Active in religious affairs,
she' was at one time director of
youth work: for the Detroit An-
nual Conference of the Methodist
Church.
Now, in addition to taking care
of their three young daughters,
Mrs. Littell is pastor of the charge
at Clinton. And in her spare time
she joins her husband in their
joint hobby of leading folk singing
and dancing.
