Candidates,
'U' President
To Convene
Gubernatorial candidates Gov.
G. Mennen Williams and Fred M.
Alger, will be "briefed" on prob-
lems facing the University and
other tax-supported educational

school presidents..
The group is scheduled to meet
with Alger tomorrow afternoon in
Lansing and with Williams Tues-

the candidates includes President
Hatcher, President John A. Han-
nah of Michigan State College,

Michigan State College of Mines
and Technology, and President Eu-
gene B. Elliott of Michigan State
Normal College.
President Hatcher explained
yesterday that the committee's
purpose was "to see that the
candidates are fully aware of
the problems facing higher edu-
I cation."
He cited the "mounting cost" of
all material used in maintaining
an education plant and the pros-
pect of increased enrollment in
the near future as problems to be
discussed.
Other major problems named
were the lack of an adequate facil-
ities for students now on the cam-
puses, the imminent return to the
caitpuses of Korean veterans, the
difficulties being encountered in
keeping capable staff members and
in attracting replacements under
present budget limitations.
Scholarship Meet
Ivan Parker, assistant to the
Dean of Students, will attend a
meeting of scholarship officials of
Midwestern colleges and universi-
ties today in Des Moines, Iowa.

National Baha'i Temple

Ann Arbor Baha'is Join Faith
In Celebration of Holy Year

By HARRY LUNN
Seventeen Ann Arbor Baha'is
joined with fellow members of
their Faith throughout the world
last night at a meditation meeting
which marked the opening of their
centenary Holy Year today.
Founded in 1941, the local Spir-
itual Assembly meets twice a week
for instruction. Ypsilanti h a s
another Baha'i group of approxi-
matelythe same size.
A large public meeting is plan-
ned in Ann Arbor sometime in
November, at which time a Baha'i
speaker from the Faith's national
headquarters in Wilmette, Ill. will
be here.
IT WAS at this time 100 years
ago that Baha'u'llah, founder of
the Faith, became aware, accord-
ing to the belief of His followers,
that He was the One prophecized
in previous religious scriptures.
The knowledge of his mission
is said to have come to Him as
a sudden revelation, compar-
able to the allegoric experience
of Moses with the burning bush
in the wilderness of Sinai, and to
that of Jesus with the dove sym-
bolizing the descent of the Holy
Ghost.
Baha'u'llah, born of a noble
Persian family, subsequently re-
vealed many books which Baha'is
believe to contain the blueprint
for civilization today.
They feel that God has given
men one Faith through progressive
revelations of His Will in each age
of history. This unfolding of reli-
gion from age to age is called "pro-
gressive revelation.'

WITH ADHERENTS in 124:
countries of the world, the Baha'i's
number into -the millions, although
no exact figure has been compiled
because of persecution of members
in the Eastern countries where the
Faith- originated.
Baha'i publications have been
printed in 90 languages.
There are more than 10,000 Ba-
ha'i's in America. The massive Ba-
ha'i Temple, shown above, is lo-
cated at Wilmette, Ill., where it
dominates the landscape on Sheri-
dan Rd. leading out of Chicago.
Built at a cost of $2,600,000,
the Temple has been a project of
the American members since 1902.
It will be dedicated May 2.
The Temple's nine-sided shape is
symbolic of the nine great religions
which have been revealed thus far.
To save construction costs, an in-
teresting technique was developed
for the outside sections of the
Temple. Instead of using expensive
carved marble, a mixture of ce-
ment and quartz was poured into
carved molds, and these blocks
form the Temple's outer shell.
'U' Marching Band
To Play in Chicago
Two appearances in the Chica-
go area have been scheduled this
weekend by the University March-
ing Band under the direction of
William D. Revelli.
The ,band will appear tomorrow
night at Grange Field in Wheaton
and again Saturday afternoon at
Dyche Stadium in Evanston at the
Michigan-Northwestern football
game.

Presidential
Issue Debated
A speech assembly heard a heat-
ed debate on the topic "Eisenhower
vs. Stevenson" today.
The unscored debate hit its hot-
test point when Jerry Fanger, '54,
speaking for the Republicans,
claimed that Stevenson was not
worthy of the vote because, in the
early period of the New Deal, he
made the mistake of working for
the Agricultural Administration
with men now suspected of pro-
Communist leanings.
Fanger also cited Stevenson's
work with the World Citizen's
Committee. He claimed "There
really isn't too much difference be-
tween some of the Communist,
Socialist and Stevenson, policies."
The debate reached a slightly
lighter note when Thomas Brown,
of Iowa University, questioned
about Eisenhower's relations with
Sen. Joseph McCarthy, replied
that Eisenhower's best policy
would have been to say "Look, Joe
-I'm your friend. Shut up!!'
