EX-SONS': Billy Graham'
list Directs Winchell House Plans Lecture

Press Club Plans Programs


To look at them one might
think that all men's dormitories
were pretty much the same.
But each has its own traditions,
its own proud past, and though
somewhat overlooked, its own
house mother. Although residents
sometimes joke about house moth-
ers, they do remember them, and
some men even correspond with
their "mothers-away-from-home"
long after dormitory days have
house mother at Winchell Ho.use
in the West Quadrangle, is an
outstanding example of house
mothers that become close person-
al friends with dormitory men.
Mrs. Barker has been at Win-
chell house since February, 1946,
when the Navy returned the
Quadrangle to civilian purposes.
Few men could tell you that in
her younger days, before she
met Frank Barker and married,
Helene Levett was an accom-
plished pianist. While studying
at the National Music Conserva-
tory in New York, her recitals
were enthusiastically received.
And few men could tell you
that the former Miss Levett was
an honor student at Kalamazoo
College or that she married a zo-
ology professor from the Univer-
sity of Nebraska.
Mrs. Barker was born in Wal-
ton, N.Y., the youngest of four
children and daughter of a Bap-
tist clergyman. Her father, Herb-
ert Levett often did personnel
work for Baptist colleges. During
one of his residences at Colgate
University, Helene met and mar-
ried Franklin D. Barker, a pro-
fessor there at that time.
The Barkers had one son, John
Franklin, who became a hospital
administrator at the Mayo Clinic
in Rochester, Minn. before his
death in 1951.


Billy Graham, the evangelist
whose recent three-week campaign
in Los Angeles extended into eight,
with a total attendance of 350,000
people, will address a University
audience at 3 p.m. Wednesday,
Oct. 14, in Hill Auditorium.
Graham plans a non-sectarian
talk on "The Present World Dilem-
ma" for his lecture, which will be-
sponsored by the speech depart-
ment.sHe will be introduced by
Regent Roscoe O. Bonisteel.
CYPRESS swamps of Florida
were first scene of Graham's ser-
mons, as he practiced his preach-
ing for his local congregation of
12 people. From Florida Graham
travelled to Wheaton, Ill., where
he originated his "Songs in the
Night" radio program.
From there on numerous
cross-country trips, each high-
lighted by a large number of
recruits to his particular type
of evangelism .
In 1950, Graham's evangelistic
campaign work was enlarged to
encompass a coast-to-coast radio
program, the "Hour of Decision,"
heard currently on more than 350
stations. Later years brought the
organization of a Billy Graham
film association.

Beginning its 36th annual meet-
ing with programs scheduled to-
day and tomorrow, the Universi-
ty Press Club will bring more than
100 daily and weekly newspaper
editors from all parts of the state
to Ann Arbor.
Scheduled for today's program

mer's German elections, informa-
tion on the latest happenings in
the field of atomic energy and re-
ports from the Press Club's jour-
nalism fellows.
