Danger Seen
In Absolutism
EDITOR'S NOTE: In conjunction with the coming lecture series, "This
I Believe," The Daily is presenting statements of belief of prominent mem-
bers of the University community.
The first lecture in the series; "Man in the Universe," will be given
by Prof. Ashley Montagu, chairman of the anthropology department,
Rutgers University, at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in Rackham Lecture Hall. The
series is sponsored by the Student Religious Association and the Campus
Religious Council.
Professor of the Law School
There seem to be times -when men are subjected more than usual
to pressures to conform to group patterns of thought. To be unortho-
dox in some matters is to be dangerously close to subversive, In such
a climate, I find it good to remind myself that life is not static, that
to stand still is to fall back. To be sure, our civilization is built on
the discoveries and philosophies of a thousand yesterdays. No one
suggests that the lessons of the past be ignored. But cardinal among
these is the lesson that once an individual, or a group, or a nation,
ceases to be dynamic, it loses power and influence. One need not deny
that there are eternal truths in order to affirm the necessity for a
skeptical approach to the world about him. The greatest men of any
age have been the men who have cast down the clay-footed idols of
their time-not wildly, not irresponsibly, but with an honest eye for
truth as God gave them to see the truth.
I believe that one need not aspire to historical greatness
before he may profit-from this lesson of history. Thus, I recognize
that my grasp of truth and of reality yesterday was partial only,
and that I can be my best self today only if I subject my routine
to penetrating examination-examination to see whether my mo-
tives, my aims, my goals are worthy, and whether my methods
are effective.
Obviously, each of us, has to have some standard by which to
measure these motives and methods, lest choice become whimsical or
expedient merely. For myself, I seek to apply the standard represented
by the life of Jesus. To the obvious suggestion that adoptioh of this
standard is itself an abdication from the avowed intent constantly
to inquire and be skeptical, it may be remarked that a not uninfluen-
tial tentmaker found no conflict here, saying, "Forgetting what lies
behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward
the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
A standard is not stultifying if it beckons ahead. The Chris-
tian ethic presents a standard the intensity of whose demand on
me varies in direct ratio with my understanding of it. Applying
this standard to my thinking about the day's problems allows me
to approach each situation as something new, yet with an ever
lifting level of judgment. The opinions I held yesterday may prove
doubtful or even invald today when my ability to judge values
may be improved.
Accordingly I believe I must keep open my mind and its channels
of information. I must be willing to listen to new ideas, some of which
may seem heretical and may prove false. I must espouse that which
seems to me to accord most nearly- with the teachings of Jesus. If, on
occasion, I find myself out of step with the group, I shall re-examine
my thinking, and if it leads to the same conclusion, I shall persevere,
remembering that in all the ages no man was more revolutionary-
even subversive of the status quo-than the Master whom I serve.
All this I believe.

New Position
Walter Continues
As Policy Maker
In a major administrative move
the Board of Regents yesterday ap-
pointed Associate Dean of Students
Walter B. Rea to the newly-cre-
ated post of Dean of Men.
The addition of another dean-

volume of work" currently handled
by the student affairs office, ac-
cording to University relations di-
rector Arthur L. Brandon.

Jug when they collide at;2:00 p.m. today in the Stadium before some

A 1952 issue-first place in the Big Ten-has materialized the

The Wolverines and Gophers each have won two straight Con-
ference games to put them in a three-way tie with Purdue for the
Big Ten lead. Purdue plays at Illinois today, and should the Illint

snatched by the winner of the Michigan-Minnesota game. Guarding the famous jug are the late
Fielding Yost and Minnesota's 1922 football coach. The Gophers will try again today to recover the
Jug which has been in the Wolverine's hands sin ce 1943.

MICHIGAN and Minnesota both
boast 2-2 season records, as well
as identical Conference marks.
The Wolverines have downed In-
diana, 28-13, and Northwestern,
48-14, after losing non-Conference
affairs to Michigan State, 27-13,
and Stanford, 14-7.
Minnesota rebounded from de-
feats by California and Wash-
ington to edge Northwestern, 27-

As for the Jug, it has been in
circulation since 1903, the legend
goes, when a Minnesota equipment
man snitched the crock from
Michigan. When Michigan author-
ities requested its return, the Go-
phers retorted, "Come and get it."
The Wolverines had to wait until
1909, the next time the rivals
could get together. Then Michi-
gan won the Jug back.
Since then the Maize and Blue
has triumphed 20 times, lost 11,
and tied three. The Michigan-
Minnesota rivalry started in 1892,
and altogether the Wolverines;
have won 26, lost 13, and tied"

THE MINNESOTA contribution
is Mr. Gopher himself, Paul Giel,..
who does everything for the Ma-
roon and Gold except paint the
scores on the Little Brown Jug.
He may take on that chore too, if
his passing, running, blocking,
punting, pass catching, and sig-
nal calling can repossess the tro-
phy for Minnesota.
Last year as a sophomore Giel
set a new Conference record for1
total offense-1079 yards in six
games-and in four starts this
year he is only 23 yards behind1
the pace for his first four 1951
games. Against Michigan in '51
Giel gained 281 yards as his]
team lost, 54-27.l

EISENHOWER placed full re-

Truman administration. He said-
without naming either the Presi-

Acheson-that they ignored re-

the South Koreans could defend
themselves alone.
This was possibly the strong-
