THE MICIGAN DATLY

TuRSDAY, MARCH

FLY TO CLEVELAND:
Students ill Make Trip
For UNESCOMeeting
Sixty University students will fly to Cleveland Friday to attend the
Second National Conference of the U.S. Committee for UNESCO.
Under the auspices of the School of Education a four engine plane
has been chartered to make a trip.
MEMBERS OF THE University group, the majority of whom are
in the School of Education, have been given credentials by the State
Department insuring their entrance to otherwise closed meetings.
The idea to take this trip grew out of classroom discussions in
the School of Education. Students and faculty felt that their
study of the history and philosophy of education would be greatly
facilitated and augmented by attending this meeting.
Delegates to the Second Conference of the U.S. Committee for
UNESCO explain that the purpose behind their meeting is to inform
as many people as possible about UNESCO and to stimulate further
activity in the U.S.
* * * *
THE SENTENCE in the UNESCO charter which reads "Since wars
begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defenses
of peace must be constructed," is the basis of UNESCO activities.
Prospective teachers will be part of the "defenses of peace"
according to the School of Education.
The UNESCO conference will take place from March 31-April 12.
The University sponsored group will attend the meetings of the first
day.
* * * *
ARRANGEMENTS have been made with a Cleveland hotel to
serve lunch and dinner to the University group. Clarence Dykstra,
president of UCLA will speak at the luncheon. Plans for a dinner
speaker have not yet been completed.
Besides the lunch and dinner meetings the day's agenda for
the group includes attending section meetings of the conference.
Ways in which UNESCO affects the U.S. films, radio, schools,
churches, labor organizations, and other institutions will be dis-
cussed.
Members of the School of Education UNESCO trip will attend the
section meetings which fit in with their particular interests.
The chartered plane will leave 7:30 a.m. Friday and return before
midnight that same day.
