'THIS I BELIEVE':
EDITOR'S NOTE: In conjunction with the coming lecture series, "This
1 Believe," The Daily is presenting statements of belief of prominent mem-
bers of the University community.
Miss Polk is an active member of the Newman Club.
By DILLY POL"K
Member of the Student Religious Association Council
Having floundered for several years in the lukewarm seas of
agnosticism, I was suddenly presented with the notion that man is
not a creature with a number of oddly assorted feelings about what he
i) and where he is going, but a rational being with a mind capable of
learning final truths and sticking to them.
I had long been assuming that I knew more about God's nature
than I actually did, and I realized that I had better do a little concrete
investigation into so important a subject. (I believed in God because
He seemed obvious to me-both from the beauties of the natural world
and from my personal contact with Him.) Upon investigation, I found
that traditional, orthodox Christianity was inescapable as the proper
manifestation of the relationship between Creator and creature.
Since my conversion, I have come to realize more and more fully
the abiding and overwhelming .love of God for each of His children,
and the delight He takes in the careful arrangement of details so that,
no matter what the evil event, good comes of it. I have come to realize
the point and the value of suffering, whether mental or physical.
Now I know from experience that the Beatitudes, far from being im-
practical aspirations, are the only possible way of governing one's
By taking Our Lord seriously and literally, seeming chaos is
resolved into beautiful order, and one can at last tell where to
begin in life, as well as where one is going. Now that I've found
my way, I can spend all my time and energy in getting there,
rather than in finding out directions.
I believe that love of God must manifest itself in love of man;
he, after all, needs us, while objectively speaking, He does not. "God
does not require us all to go out and be martyrs," someone once said,
"but He does require us not to lose our tempers when the toast burns."
Even if I were some great statesman in charge of foreign affairs,
it would make very little real difference to the world at large if I sud-
denly dropped dead. But perhaps ten or twenty people in Ann Arbor
would be concerned if something happened to me, and are made
happy, sad, or cross by the way I say good morning or the one moment
I spend asking how that test went.
What do I want, then, from life? To do God's will. For I know
that nothing else can make me happy for long, and that He, who
is my Father, will Inot leave me comfortless. I can trust all to Him.
"I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year, 'Give me a
light, that I may tread safely into the unknown.'
Prof. Ashley Montagu, chair-
man of the anthropology depart-
ment at Rutgers University, will
open the "This I Believe" lecture
series at 8:30 p.m. today in the
Rackham Lecture Hall.
His talk on "Man and His Uni-
verse" is sponsored by the Student
Religious Association and the
Campus Religious Council.
PROF. MONTAGU is also sen-
ior lecturer at the Veterans Ad-
ministration Post Graduate Train-
ing Program in Psychiatry in
Philadelphia, lecturer at the
School of Social Research in New
York and a consultant to UNESCO.
In addition to writing, produc-
ing and directing the film, "One
World or Nine," he has written
"Statement on Race," "Coming
Into Being Among the Austral-
ian Aborigines," "Adolescent
Sterility," and many other books.
Two of his recent books, "On
Being Human" and "Darwin:
Competition and Cooperation,"

Taking the affirmative side of
the question, "Resolved: that the
foreign policy of the Democratic
administration has been inade-

once the administration had com-
mitted innumerable blunders "it
then failed to stop the already
bloated Communist colossus."
Prof. Slosson defended the
Roosevelt-Truman policy by cit-
ing seven achievements of the
Democrats: the UN charter, the
Marshall Plan, NATO, the Truman
Doctrine, Korean intervention, the
Point Four Program and the re-
ciprocal trade agreements.
He went on to say that "Repub-

CHICAGO (/P)-Gen. Joseph R. McCarthy, in a slashing attack on
Gov. Adlai Stevenson and his advisors. said last night that the Nov.
4 election will decide whether America or Communism wins.
The Republican senator from Wisconsin also charged:

parcel of the Acheson-Hiss-Lattimore group."
2. Endorses "suicidal Kremlin-shaped policies for America."

The Illinois governor teed off on
Eisenhower's Korean views before
a throng, estimated at 14,000 per-
sons by the Providence Journal,
in Providence's City Hall Square.
STEVENSON said Eisenhower
had "led the people to believe that
if they will trust him, he will find
a way out" of the Korean stale-
mate. Having told a Brockton,
Mass., crowd earlier in the day
that no one knows when th'e war
will end, he added:

Department in 1943, had a plan
for "foisting the Communists

In this connection, McCarthy
referred to a book written by Gen.

Central Intelligence Agency. In
that book, McCarthy said, "the
