Willcox Tells Historian
Views on Christianity

Prof. William Willcox of the his-
tory department said yesterday,
that because of increasing pessi-
mism, "I don't think it is an ac-
cident that we're getting a revival
today of interest in the orthodox
view of man."
Speaking yesterday afternoon as
part of the Inter-guild series
"Christianity. and Intellect," Prof.
Willcox brought out the relation
of the historian to the Christian
point of view.
Christ and Socrates
He indicated one could not ac-
cept the full spiritual conception
of Christ from historical evidence
alone. A pure historian could only
say Christ was essentially in the
same class as Socrates or any oth-
er great teacher.
From the historical view, there
is no way to imply "the Resurrec-
tion and the on-going timeless ex-
istence of this man after death."
He noted the idea of continual
progress prevalent in the last cen-
tury could not include the spiritual
picture of history.
Climax 2,000 Years Ago
"The Christian starts with the
view that the supreme climax of
history happened 2,000 years ago.
The traditional historian is so
thoroughly imbued with the idea
of progress that this simply doesn't
make any sense.
However, within the last few
years, he said, "Historians are
coming more and more to wonder
if, as you increase man's power
through inventions, you don't in-
crease his power to do evil.
Secular Pessimism
But this pessimism is necessar-
ily secular since it cannot be fully
consistant with Christian belief.
Thus, a modern secular pessimism
is replacing the traditional secu-
lar optimism.
He continued that the idea of
God as a man "was folly to the
Greeks-it has been folly ever
since to people who exist in a ra-

"What do we need those things
for?" asked a senior walking
through the Administration Bldg.
He, referred to t he com-
mencement announcements, call-
ing cards, and souvenir booklets
now on sale in the lobby under
Senior Board auspices.
"These?" A senior class officer
answered, "these you need to let
people know you're leaving Ann
"Isn't that obvious anyway?"
asked the senior.
"Maybe," the officer conceded,
"but when you send announce-
ments you're pretty sure of getting
graduation presents to boot."
"Hmmmm," mused the senior.
"Yes," the officer said, "we know
it's mercenary, but these really
do serve a purpose. Interested?".
"For ten cents apiece?" The
senior inspected the sample an-
nouncement. "Good deal-I'll or-
der twenty of them."
Announcements are on sale to-
day and tomorrow from 1-5 p.m.
Academy Meeting
Members of the Michigan Acad-
emy of Sciences, Arts, and Letters
will be assembled on the Univer-
sity campus today through Satur-
day for their 60th annual meeting.

bers, research associates and public

pects of the University's counsel-

Health Service.

ber of the faculty from 1908 to

Editor Cites
John MacLallan, managing edi-
tor of the Detroit Times, yester-
day described the rapidly increas-
ing demand for reporters who are
Addressing Sigma Delta Chi,
professional journalism fraternity,
he said, "I feel sorry for you young
people. I don't know how you're
going to contend with all this."
He explained that modern re-

tional sort of world, that is, a world
bred on reason.
No Record of Crucifixion
"You don't seem to have any
coercive evidence to convince his-
torians about miracles. There is
no court record of the trial held
by Pontius Pilot. There is no his-
torical record of the Crucifixion."
The only evidence historians do
have is that "the man, the teach-
er" existed and that "there were
a bunch of simple folk who were
scared stiff, utterly discouraged,"
who suddenly had an explosion of
energy, he said.

He said the accepted idea is
that "There are three criteria forJ
wide, wide readership: Blood,
money and sex-and I wouldn't
want to be pinned to a wall and
shot if I had them in the wrong
order either.
"I don't adhere to that. That's3
not how I judge news," he added.-
From the time he began news-
paper work he has noted four
distinct changes. Originally, 80 per
cent of the newsrevolved around
"Many of my colleagues at this
time," he said, "carried guns."
Usually it was more in the spirit
of the bravado of the work than
out of necessity. The reporters
were young, unmarried men as
contrasted to the more or less set-
tled reporter of today.
The great Depression brought
on the next stage, which focused
sudden interest on politics and na-
tional affairs.
The third period began with the
war, and intensified this national
and international interest.
"This age, the fourth age, is
where the newspaperman will have
to know something of anthropol-
ogy, sociology, and the behavioral
sciences," he said.
But he declared, "the news-
paperman must be a reporter first
and then a specialist."
MacLellan said he is "tremend-
ously impressed by the effective-
ness of TV" and that most news-
papermen deprecate t e le v i sio n
more than they should."

A frank message to
graduating electronic and mechanical
Y" knowit . ..* we know it ... so let's be frank
about it.
The demand for engineers-experienced or graduate
-far exceeds the supply/And, from now on in, you
are going to be sought after more than a triple threat
halfback for next year's varsity.
You will be promised many things (including the
moon with a fence/around it), and for a young man
just getting started these things are pretty hard
to resist. /
So, again, le s be frank. We at Farnsworth won't
promise you the moon. (Although we are working
on some ideas that may eventually get you there
and back.)'We are an old, young organization. Old,
in the sense of being pioneers in the field of elec-
tronics./(Our technical director, Dr. Philo Farnsworth
invented electronic television.) Young, by being the
newest division of the world-wide International Tele-
phone and Telegraph Corporation, devoting our ef-
f9rts exclusively to research, development and pro-
duction of military and industrial electronics, and
atomic energy.
All of which makes Farnsworth big enough for sta-
bility and technical perspective, yet small enough
for mobility; flexibility and recognition of the in-
dividual. Here you will be associated with and
encouraged by a team of eminent scientists and
engineers with many "firsts" to their credit in the.
field of electronics. Here you will be heard . .«. not
just one of the herd.
We earnestly invite you to hear the whole fascinating
Farnsworth story. We're pretty certain it will make
thq decision for your future easier.
