Rev. Yoder Strives To Deepen Faith

A man who wants to have a

Mr. Yoder came to Ann Arbor
in 1932 as the pastor for the Trin- $.
ity Lutheran Church and for v.
Lutheran students. In 1945 the
Student Service Commission of the ..
National Lutheran Council called'

"ONE OF MY main purposes
here is to deepen and enrich the
Christian faith of students," Mr.
Yoder stated. His aims are carried
out in Sunday morning Bible'
classes, in graduate student work,
and in religious courses taught on
Tuesday nights.
The religious courses cover a
four-year period and include a
review of the Lutheran cate-
chism, teachings of Christian
denominations, study of the his-
tory of the church, and intro-
duction to the books of the Bible.
"Another reason why I am here
is to develop student leadership
by giving them the opportunity to
lead," Mr. Yoder continued. As
director, he counsels students and
helps them with the Sunday eve-
ning programs.

"ONEk OF MY happy experiences'
in Ann Arbor has been the cooper-
ation of the faculty," Mr. Yoder
commented. The willingness to co-
operate was particularly noticeable

Bible in preparation for teaching religious courses. Since 1945
he has been pastor and director of the Lutheran Student Associa-

when he was executive secretary
°of Religion-in-Life Week, he said.
Mr. Yoder is a pleasant, quiet
voiced man who is well-liked
by the Lutheran students. le
is known to his intimate friends
as "Hank."
For five years before coming
to Ann Arbor, Mr. Yoder served
a parish in Portland, Ind.

IN REGARD TO the require-
merit that applicants submit a
photograph, Dean of Students
Erich A. Walter said, "I can tell
a great deal about a person by
his photograph, such as whether
he is a sensitive individual. This
information also helps us in mak-
ing room assignments."
Miss Gowans emphasized that
requests for particular room-
mates are granted, even where
they involve students of mixed
religion or race.
"If a white student wants to
room with a Negro, or a Jew with
a Christian, we are happy to fill
their requests," Miss Gowans said.
* * *
(SEVERAL MEN reported to me
that they had tried in vain to room
with men of a different race, in-
cluding an Oriental who wished
to room with a Caucasian, and a
Caucasian who desired to room
with a Negro.
(In each instance the student
admitted that he could not
prove that it was a case of
discrimination. There are at
present several inter - racial
rooming coambinations in the
Men's Residence Halls.)
Miss Gowans said that some-
times the request of two students
to room together in a particular
house cannot be filled because of
the unavailability of a double
room. In such a case, it is neces-
sary to place the men in separate
rooms, she pointed out.
* * *
THE STUDENT Legislature has
recently opened an office in the
Union to hear student complaints
about possible discriminatory prac-
tices in University rooming houses.
Peter A. Ostafin, Chief Resi-
dent Advisor of the West Quad,
said that the system of assign-
ing roommates on the basis of
religion when they do not make
specific requests has been used
for a long time, "but without the
slightest notion on the part of
University officials that some
students might regard it as a
form of discrimination or segre-
"If any student feels hurt as a
result of this method, then per-
haps it should be changed," he
"Because we (administrators)
are so close to the situation we
may sometimes fail to see some-
thing that others regard as unde-
sirable," _Ostafin admitted.

about one of the most famous
trials of modern times, has been
chosen by the speech department
for the Michigan initiation of

and Wednesday night at the

Theatre-in-the-Rround, known
also as arena or circle theatre, is
a technique by which the actors

It is an attempt to get away
