S RA Provid
Lane Hall, University religious agre
center, has been called a "work- to s
shop experience in human rela- Ar
tions" with a main goal of broth- SRA
erhood. info
In 1857 in Ann Arbor the first Cam
Student Christian Association for
men was started in the United
States. In 1917 a Women's Chris-
tian Association, whose headquar-
ters was Newberry Hall, became
Due to an economic crisis in
1938, the Women's and Men's
Christian Association joined forces
with the University, and a Student
Religious Association, with Lane
Hall as its center, was formed.
Open to All Students
At present Lane Hall is open to
any student, regardless of faith,
creed, or color, who is associated
with the University.
It gives the student the oppor-
tunity to understand the thinking
of people from diverse back-
grounds. Dewitt Baldwin, the co-
ordinator of religious affairs, said,
"Lane Hall truly provides a start
in education for world living."
Lane Hall tries to meet the need
of every student on campus. With-
in the building there exists many
functional areas which include a
library,'kitchens, a dark room,
craft shops, recreation rooms, an
auditorium, conference rooms, a
meditation room, and a high fi-
delity music room.
Functions of the Student Reli-
gious Association are two fold,
namely, it acts as the agent where
twenty-two organized religious
groups, called guilds, co-operate
with each other, and it serves the
interests of individuals of all
faiths in a religious fellowship.
Holds Various Activities
Some of its activities include
weekend work camps, world uni-
versity service, faculty-student,
discussions, intercultural outings,
open houses, square and folk danc-
ing, and weekly coffee hours.
These activities exemplify Lane
Hall's inter-faith program which a

Foreign Coeds To Be Aided
By League Orientation Plans

Petitioning Now Open to Students
For Panhel Ball, Hillel Positions

The International Committee ofv
the League in association with As-
sembly and Panhellenic has under-
taken a project to help new coeds
from foreign countries, who are
coming to the campus in the fall,
to feel more at home.
A sign-up sheet has been post-
ed in each of the women's resi-
dences by their Senate represen-
tatives for coeds interested in be-
coming an "American friend"' to
a foreign student.
Plans are being made to get the
names and addresses of all the
new foreign women entering the
University in September and giv-
ing them to interested coeds, so
that letters may be exchanged
during the summer.
It is hoped that in this way, the
women will be able to have some
of their questions answered before
coming, and they will be able to
feel that there is someone here
who is interested in them and who
can help them become orientated
to campus life.
The project, the first of its kind
to go into actual operation, has
been enthusiastically received by
the League Council and Women's
Senate, and there have been many

suggestions as to how the foreign
coeds may be aided in their ad-
"American friends" may show
them where to go shopping, have
them over to dinner or go on pic-
nics, take them on a tour of the
campus, or take them to church.
The International Center also of-
fers opportunities in turn, for Am-
erican coeds to learn about life in
other countries.
Each of the women who sign-up
will be personally contacted by the
League so that they may find a
time to be interviewed by the
