Truman held a long "highly prof-

tration cleanup, but delayed any
announcement of plans at least

say that "matters of interest to
the country" were discussed and
that he may see the President

New Arms
Plan Rejected

History Evolved
Lutheran Beliefs
(Editor's Note: The subject of today's Religious Survey ar-
ticle, Lutheranism, deals with a part of the Protestant faith which
traces its origin to the beginning of the movement. Information
and advice for this article was provided by the campus -Lutheran
Daily Associate Editor
Qdldly enough, the roots of Lutheranism do not run back to Mar-
tin Luther, but are entwined in the development of historical Chris-
The Lutherans have never regarded Luther as a saint, but only as
a man who played an important part in God's pattern of development.
When Luther nailed his 97 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in
Wittenberg he was seriously concerned with the abuses that were pre-
sent in the early 16th Century Roman Catholic Church. He did not
take the scoffing approach of Erasmus in "Praise of Folly," but sought
a positive solution. Luther's first efforts were toward reforming the
church from within. The break with the Church of Rome came only
when he found this impossible to achieve.
Luther was placing the emphasis on faith. He believed the evi-
dence for this new interpretation was to be found in the scripture.
ESSENTIALLY THE Lutheran faith is 9, Bible centered religion.
It accepts both the Old and New Testaments, believing that a unity
exists between the two. It is through this written word that man comes
to know Jesus Christ.
During the 16th Century, a religion which stressed the written
word as it appeared in the Bible was presented with many problems.
Practically all existing copies of the scriptures were in Latin. There-
fore one of the first jobs was to translate the testaments into the
The cost of printing a Bible was equal to the wages a man could
earn in a year. To circumvent this problem Luther wrote a short
tract called "The Small Catechism." It contained the ten com-
mandments, the Lord's Prayer, the Apostle's Creed and other pray-
ers and commentaries to be used in daily religious thought. This
tract holds part of the basic dogma of the Lutheran church.
Another important document in the Lutheran history is the Augs-
burg Confession. It was drawn up at the request of Charles V, of the
Holy Roman Empire, at that time a group of German states, who,
wanted a sumnary of the Lutheran faith. The Confession set forth
the points of agreement with the Roman Catholic Church, and also
pointed to the abuses and to the scriptural justification for the new
Lutheran stand on the issue.
THE LUTHERAN CONCEPTION of God is that epressed in the
Bible-that he is one in essence, yet three in person. God has manifest-
ed Himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit'in the work of creation,
reemption and sanctification. The Lutherans believe that the in-
spiration of the Bible and prayer would become farcical if God were
only an impersonal force, some cosmic urge, or an abstract principle.
God is a person, incorporeal but nonetheless real. He can be
known only from God's revelation of Himself in Jesus Christ,
through the scriptures.
In the eyes of the Lutheran, man is a fallen saint, not a cultured
brute. Originally man was created in the image of God to live according
to His law. But man, in the person of Adam, disobeyed God and there-
by'became a sinner. In doing this, man brought sin and death upon
himself and all his posterity.
SIN IS TRANSGRESSION of the divine law, as set forth in the
Bible. All men born into this world by a natural mode of generation
have the taint of original sin. Original sin is not an activity, but a
condition. It exists even though there is no conscious, voluntary act
of the internal or external powers of the mind or body. This condition
is the source of actual transgressions.
The Lutherans look on the matter of the universe and the
forces with which matter is endowed as products of a God's will
and intelligence. The universe was not developed by the action of
forces resident in matter.
And in turn, man was not created as a species of animal, but in

She might have claimed a waiv-

Violet Jane Barber, 20 years old,
drowned yesterday in an appar-
ent suicide in the Huron River
near a bridge onrGeddes Road
north of Ann Arbor.
Dr. Edwin C. Ganzhorn, county
coroner, has not yet announced
the cause of her death. However
several persons claimed to have
seen Miss Barber make several
attempts and then finally jump
from the bridge into the icy river.
The sheriff's department was
then called to the scene where
they dragged the river in freezing
winds for over two hours before
she was finally discovered approx-
imately one hundred yards from
the bridge.
Miss Barber was the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Norris Barber,

for three years by the Farm Bu-

The fourth, addressed to Hun-
