THIS I BELIEVE:
Basic in Life
EDITOR'S NOTE: In conjunction with the lecture series "This I Believe,"
The Daily is presenting statements of belief from prominent members of
the University community.
By MILTON E. MEADT
Mead, a pre-theology student, is on the Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics and has varsity letters in Track and Basketball.
Considering all the events in my life, the greatest thing that hap-
pened to me was finding God through Christ. However, to be perfectly
-4 honest, I cannot accept credit for it. For a long time I had been exposed
to the Christian influences of my family and church, but I had never..
really come to the crossroads of decision. Like most young fellows, I did
little serious thinking about any matter, especially about religion or
any topic of world importance. But eventually God got through to me
and gave purpose to living.
The wonderfulness of this revelation is that it has reoccurred with
increasing frequency since the initial experience. Knowing God has
become a growing process. Each time self is conquered, a little better
glimpse of the Eternal Purpose is seen. I marvel at the graciousness of
God and what He can do through me when I let Him. In utter sin-
cerity I can testify that God has never let me down when my action
was in accord with His will.
Some people rebel at a faith that is demanding because they
feel it is not worth the effort or frustration involved in setting high
goals: But from my experience, I have found that playing the game
of life according to strict rules and with God as a partner is fascin-'
ating. If religion creates frustration and guilt feelings, it also pro-
vides abundant power to overcome them.
It seems that this struggle between sin and uprightness is the
point where most of us fall down. Temporary set-backs discourage
us, and slamming the door in Satan's face seems to be contrary to
group norms. A Christian should live on a higher plane than society
in general; however living God's way is not easy, so why try? The
answer is that living rightly does give ultimately the greatest satis-
faction, but more important, God needs each one of us to bring
lils Kingdom on earth.
Believing that our world also needs Him, forces me to conclude.
that lknowing God is the best thing that has happened in my life, and
following Christ's pattern has been the greatest challenge ever of-
fered me. I expect to make mistakes, but my faith is that God will
somehow use each experience to eventually make me better qualified
to serve mankind.

Holds Key to Boilermaker Offense

A probable Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl trip will go on the
line this afternoon when Michigan meets Purdue in a real "blue chip"
battle before 55,000 Stadium fans.

Meet 'U' Quota
Campus Young Progressives,
who earlier in the week feared loss
of recognition because of under-
quota membership, announced last
night that the 30-member require-
ment had been fulfilled.
A number of students who pre-
viously "had been doubting join-
ing the club" added their names
to the 20 members listed Tuesday
to meet the quota, according to
Marge Buckley, '53, YP chairman.
YP members at the Tuesday
night meeting expressed the feel-
ing that membership had dropped
since a University policy allowing
campus political clubs to keep
membership lists secret was res-
cinded in October.
Accovding to the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs, no deadline had been
set for the YP's fulfillment of the
membership quota and as soon as
the completed list is turned in, the
group will have officially renewed
their recognition for the semester.

Local, county and state police
will drain their manpower barrels
to police the football game today.
Everyone on the Ann Arbor po-
lice force, from the chief down to
the patrolmen will be on duty to
help direct the expected crowd of
55,000. Coupled with the 54 Ann
Arbor police will be 50 Michigan
State police, and 18 from the
Washtenaw County Sheriff's of-
S * *
IN ADDITION to directing traf-
fIic, they will put up No Parking
signs prior to the game on the
main streets and those within a
five block radius of the .stadium.
To cope with the floor of traf-
fic entering the city the police
have set up a "point control"
plan. This plan, operative on the
city's main arteies, allows driv-
ers to move faster on these
crowded thoroughfares. This is
done by coordinating the more
than 100 officers directing traf-
fic on these streets so that all
east-west traffic will be halted
while the north-south traffic is
moving and vice-versa.
After the game gets underway,
the policemen-who had previously
been directing the traffic in the
"point control" system, will sta-
tion themselves by the aisles and
on the stadium field.
The police will resume their pre-
game stations after the game to
help direct the outgoing crowd.
Hatcher To Attend
President Harlan H. Hatcher
will .represent the University at a
meeting of the Michigan Council
of College: Presidents Monday at
Michigan State Normal College.,
To obtain what it is seeking,
Purdue will call on veteran quar-
terback Dale Samuels, end Bernie
Flowers and fullback Max Schmal-
PROF. McHARGUE explained
that the same system will be used
for determining representation.
The main feature of this system
is the moiety clause which en-
titles each district to °a represen-
tative which has over 50 per cent
of the population required for a
full district. r
"In this way," Prof. McHar-
gue said, "the outstate counties
are assigned representation first
and then areas such as Wayne
County gets what is left." The
x political scientist pointed out
that . Wayne County has always
been "cut short," but by this
proposal will make a little gain
Prof. Ferrel Heady, also of the
political science department,
agreed that Wayne County would
receive the "whole gain" from the
new amendment. He added that
using population as the sole basis
of representation, Wayne County
will still not have its due represen-
Pointing to one of the major
improvements resulting from the
new plan, Prof. Heady commented
that Pow a city can be divided
into districts instead of having the
representation, elected at large.
He also explained that as regards

SL Candidates Work Hard on Campaigns, Poster Stunts
By TERI YOUNGMAN
As the SL election campaign moves into the home stretch, candi-
dates are intensifing their effdrts to bring their names and platforms
before the students.
"We do everything but sleep," one candidate remarked. For the
average prospective legislator the day really begins about 3 p.m. He
will probably spend the afternoon visiting one or two dormitories,
meeting students by the informal method of knocking on doors, and

THIS IS A GOOD method for contacting people individually, but
the candidate tries to see as many as possible. Since the best time to
find a large group of students at home is during the dinner hour,
many candidates give up their own meal in order to talk to students
at this time. One female candidate commented that she has lost five
pounds since she decided to run for SL.

Student Legislature candidates have managed to dig up all the
traditional poster ideas and create a few zany, original designs for
this fall's campaign.
It's impossible to walk down any of the streets in campus-town
without running into a colorful barrage of campaign signs staring you
in the face from a store windlow.

WHILE MANY aspirants flocked to campus printers with their
campaigning ideas, others decided to cut costs by producing home-made
The signs, on the whole, are remarkably staid, although one
candidate advertises himself as a "fighting" future legislator, while
others have outlined their platforms in brief on the posters.
Most of the female candidates took care to include pictures of
themselves on the literature, but "personality" shots of the men
