SRA Adopts
ReligionPlan
SRA went on record yesterday
as approving a proposal to bring a
coordinator of religious studies to
the University.
This proposal, if passed by the
University, would be the beginning
of a unified religious program on
campus. The duties of the coor-
dinator would be to teach basic
religion courses and integrate
them with related courses in other
departments.
There are no plans for a de-
partment of religion in the im-
mediate future, because more
members would have to be added
to the faculty. As the plans now
stand, present faculty members
would teach the religion courses.
New officers of SRA were also
installed at yesterday's meeting.
President is Mort Friedman, '53;
vice-president, Dave Bronson, '53
A&D; secretary, Sally Haas; and
members - at - large, Hiru Shah,
Grad.; and Diane Johnston. Ed.

"Where Collegians Meet"
The Dascola Barbers
Liberty near State

Before 150 men of Gomberg
House and several University mem-
bers, Dean Walter "Bud" Rea was
initiated as faculty associate of
Gomberg House last night during
a special banquet in his honor.
The gathering, a stag affair, was
highly informal. Most of the resi-
dents were in shirt sleeves and the
speeches were marked with lively
stories.
AMONG THE special .guests
were Dean Erich Walter, Univer-
sity Vice-president Marvin Nie-
huss, Dean Peter Ostafin, Prof.
Lionel Laing, of the political sci-
ence department, John Bingley,
resident director of East Quad-
rangle, and Steve Filipiak, mana-.
ger of a local radio station.
Dean Rea expressed, his ap-
preciation for being chosen for
the honor. He pointed out that
perhaps one of the factors in-
fluencing his selection as the
faculty advisor was that he liv-
ed next door to the late Prof.
Moses Gomberg for three years
as an undergraduate.
After being presented with an
honorary year round meal ticket
for quad use Dean Rea cited some
of the achievements of Professor
M o s e s Gomberg who died in
1947. Among these were the dis-
covery of anti-freeze and mustard
gas and many awards and honors.
Today the name Gomberg lives
on not only as the name of a house
in South Quad but also as a schol-
arship fund for needy undergradu-
ate students.
Faculty Group
To Give Recital
The University Woodwind Quin-
tet, made up entirely of music

Evans, French horn; and Lewis

Dexter, pianist, will assist the

Planets To Provide Source
Of Observation This Month

Though no special astronomical
events are due in May, those wan-
derers of the skies, the planets,
will provide an ever-interesting
source of observation.
Mars will get as near to the
earth as it ever does during May-
a mere 52 million miles away, re-
ports Hazel M. Losh of the astron-
omy department. Besides provid-
ing a brilliant spectacle in the
southern sky during the night,.
Mars will show quite noticeably
its changing position among the
so-called fixed stars. The word
"planet" is derived from a Greek
word meaning wanderer.
* * *
MARS WILL appear as a bright
reddish or orange star. to the
southeast right after sunset early
in the month. It will be just west
and above the brightest star in the
constellation of Libra. The chang-
ing position of Mars in relation to

these stars show it to be moving
rapidly to the west on succeeding
nights.
Two quarter moons willappear
in May, on the evenings of May 1
and May 31. The interval between
like phases of the moon is 291/2
days so the phases do not keep step
with the calendar month, but it-is
not often that we get two of them
in a month, Miss Losh reports.
Exhibit To Open
Mayor William E. Brown jr., will
open the Merchants and Builders
Show at 3 p.m. today when he cuts
the ribbon across the entrance to
the main Fairgrounds exhibition
building.
City Council President Cecil 0.

Commerce Executive Secretary
Philip McCallum will also be there.
