Odtloo _Good
The job outlook is good for the
June graduate.
According to T. Luther Purdom,
director of the Bureau of Appoint-
ments, there is a great demand
for college graduates to fill jobs
and anyone who really wants em-
ployment can get it.
The greatest demand is in the
technical and scientific field, es-
pecially engineering, Purdom said.
Government jobs in these fields
are particularly abundant, he add-
Many opportunities are also
open, he pointed out, for sales-
people, accountants and secretar-
ies. Teacher, librarians and die-
ticians are also in demand. A
great call is out for social science
teachers in the secondary schools.
Purdom advised students not to
think that the draft will spoil
their chances, because many com-
panies take on help for a short
while before they are drafted,
planning to take them back after
they get out of service.

Play Opening
The opening of "Hotel Uni-
verse," second production of the
Arts Theatre Club has been post-
poned until Friday, Ed Troupin,
club business manager announced
The play had originally been
scheduled to open last night.
Troupin said that the opening
was delayed because Sonya Raimi
and Warren Pickett, actors in the
production, are ill with flu.
"Hotel Universe," which was
written by the late Philip Barrie,
deals with a group of people, dis-
illusioned with life, who cut them-
selves off from the world in a spot
on the Riviera.
Here, through thinking out their
past errors and the aid of a mys-
terious, Godlike man, they find
hope and redemption.
Friedericy To

has been a leader in the field of
documentary films since his first
tour of Russia in 1930. It was
on this trip that he made his
first film.
The opening of war in Sep-
tember, 193, found him in
Warsaw. He remained, ii the
Polish capital throughout the

er Warsaw's fall, weremade in-

Alumni Clubs
To Celebrate
U Birthday
University alumni clubs across
the nationwill be holding meetings
throughout March to mark ther
114th anniversary of the Univer-
sity's establishment at Ann Arbor.
Although an act to establish
"the Catholepistemiad or Univer-
sity of Michigania" was adopted by{
the governor and judges of the
Territory of Michigan on August
26, 187, the territory was not
ready for education at the college
level, and the University, estab-
lished at Detroit, maintained only
an elementary school and academy.
March 18 has been officially set
aside as University of Michigan
Day, since it was on that day in
1837 that the Legislature of the
newly admitted state of Michigant
passed an act to provide for "the
organization and government ofE
the University of Michigan."
This act established a Board ofj
Regents and stated that the tni-
versity should consist of a depart-'
ment of literature, science and the
arts, a department of law and a
department of medicine. Two days
later, on March 20, 1837, the Legis-
lature passed another act locating
the University at Ann Arbor.
This Sunday will mark the fifth
annual celebration of University
of Michigan Day.
Pierce To Speak
On Rocket Travel
"An Astronomer Looks to Inter-
planetary Travel" will be the topic
of a lecture by Prof. Keith Pierce,
of the astronomy department, to
be given at 8 p.m. today in the
Rackham Amphitheatre.
Sponsored by Sigma Xi, an hon-
orary science fraternity, Prof.
Pierce will deal with the condi-
tions a rocket ship might encoun-
ter in outer space. An expert in
solar physics, he will also discuss

time and space factors involved
in rocket travel.

varied student activities which are
carried on daily in Lane Hall, the
red brick building on the corner
of State and E. 'Washington

A TYPICAL weekly agenda
would probably include the regu-
lar square dance sessions and the
crafts shop meeting, plus Hillel's
sabbath services and a Triton film
society program on Friday eve-
The summer projects office, of-
fering information on travel-and
study-abroad plans, is open daily,
A coffee hour and luncheon group
meeting give opportunities for in-
formal discussions.
The most current enterprize
for Lane Hall and the Student
Religious Association, which
makes its home there, is plan-

ning and carrying out the an-
nual Religion-in-Life Week pro-
gram, a five-day series of lec-
tures, seminars, and meetings
designed to investigate religious
faith and the answers it can
give to current problems.
One of SRA's functions is to'
serve as an official co-ordinating
agency for the many student reli-
gious groups, but it also initiates
religious activities for the campus
as a whole., The annual all-cam-
pus Carol Sing on the Library
steps at Christmas time is one of
the more familiar of these SRA-
sponsored events.
One of the most typical of
Lane Hall's regular functions is
the weekly Friday afternoon
coffee hour, at which students,
religious workers and leaders,
faculty members and special

guests meet and exchange views
in an informal atmosphere.
Promoting intercultural under-
standing among foreign and Am-
erican students is a very impor-
tant part of the SRA program.
Inter-cultural retreats - weekend
outings to camps in this vicinity-
with group discussions and recre-
ation, provide a basis for the fel-
lowship and understanding.
Volunteer work at the Univer-
sity or Children's Hospital, or ac-
tivity with child and adult groups
at the community center is or-
ganized-under SRA workers.

WITH A PROGRAM of activi-
ties ranging from creative arts to
peace conferences, SRA and Lane
Hall have managed to extend
their work throughout the Uni-
versity. Last semester SRA stu-
dent - initiated activities com-
manded a total attendance of ap-
proximately 3,500 students. The
religious program on campus has
thus progressed from the time
when student ativities of a social
and educational nature were
sponsored by various Ann Arbor
When the original Student
Christian Association was or-
ganized'in Ann Arbor in 1857,
it was the first organization of
its kind in any institution of
learning in the country.
The national YMCA had been
created earlier, but that group
provided only for men, while- the
SCA at Michigan was organized to
include all local women who
jwanted to participate in its activ-
ities, although women had not yet
been admitted to the University.
Early meetings were held in the
south wing of old University Hall,
until Newberry Hall (the present
Museum of Archaeology) was op-
i ened in 1891.
The YMCA and the YWCA were
organized on the campus later.
The three groups were combined
in 1904, and were later to be
taken under the sponsorship of
the University.
LANE HALL and SCA were
taken over by the University in
1937, at which time the Stdent
Christian Association was reor-
ganized into the Student Religious
Association in its present form.
As a campus religious organiza-
tion, SRA is unique in its inter-
faith program. On the SRA coun-
cil all organized campus religious
groups are equally represented.
At present 21 of these groups have
seats on the council.
SRA is also unique in that it
is part of the University pro-
gram-the agency recognized
for student extra-curricular re-
ligious activities, and as such is
supported by state funds appro-
priated for the University bud-
The Rev. DeWitt Baldwin, af-
fectionately known to Lane Hall
workers as "Uncle Si", has served
as director of Lane Hall since the
'spring of 1949.
TYPICAL OF religious organi-
zations on other campuses, SCA
and SRA have initiated many
projects which have since been
taken over by University depart-
ments. The first housing and
employment bureau was SCA-
sponsored, and the Fresh Air

Herman J. Friedericy, Nether-
lands United Nations Assembly
delegate and a former Dutch East
Indies government official, will
give an informal address on "The
United Nations and Indonesia" at
7:15 p.m. today in the Henderson
Room of the League.
Friedericy, whose experience in-
cludes many years as a magazine
editor in the Dutch colony and
several stints as colon~ial advisor
to Netherlands Security Council
delegations, will speak before the
University UNESCO Council. The
meeting will be open to the pub-
Earlier in the day, Friedericy
will be the guest of the political
science department at a depart-
mental tea at 4 p.m. in the Lea-


may be rescheduled for tomorrow.I
