THE MICHIGAN DAILY
AUSTIN COMMENTS:
Inter-Group Relations Not Problem

r

By ETHEL KQVITZ
"We don't have inter-group
problems on this campus so much
as we have overlooked opportun-
ity," according to C. Grey Austin,
a member of Lane Hall's staff.
Many students become active in
only one or two campus activities
and never develop an understand-
ing of those groups with which
they have no contact, he explained.
"Because of this fraternities and
sororities are often misunderstood.
And in the same way religious
groups, foreign students and many
other segments of the student body
are not understood by people who
never enter that aspect of Uni-
versity life," Austin continued.
"But almost every new effort
that an individual makes to find
some new experience is a step for-
ward.
"Panhel and Assembly recently
got together on writing to foreign
students before they came to the
University and meeting them when
they arrived. This was a new and
very valuable experience for the
girls."
SGC Vitality
Austin also praised "the new
vitality that SGC has. . It is go-
ing tj do a lot to create under-
standing between groups because

Given Award
Lee E. Allgood, '56E, has been
awarded $1250 first prize in the
James F. Lincoln Arc Welding
Foundation's nationwide competi-
tion for mechanical and structural
designs by engineering students.
Allgood's winning design was a
stamped die of welded construc-
tion, suitable for low quantity pro-
duction, whose cost would be 20
per cent that of a conventionally
made die.

meetings will be a place where
general campus problems can be
aired. Also, the fact that leaders
of many campus activities are
members of SGC will be a distinct
contribution to inter-group un-
derstanding."
A look at the underlying purpose
of a group would also do much to
improve understanding, according
to Austin.
"People in religious activities
would like to see more people do-
ing that sort of work. Students
must come to realize that reli-
gion is not just interested in get-
ting people to go to church.
"In a sense one of the jobs re-
ligion is trying to do is to help
students to re-examine their own
ideas and motivations. If students
working in religious groups rea-
lize that some other activities are

moving in the same direction, they
will understand those activities
better."
Potential Problem
Austin also commented that
though inter-group relations are
not now a crucial problem, "they
are a potential problem."
A conference cn human rela-
tions, to be held this week-end and
attended by representatives from
colleges in the state, will discuss
what can be done to prevent group
relations from becoming a cam-
pus problem, Austin commented.
Austin has been a member of
the Lane Hall staff for four years.
He was formerly with the Wesley
Foundation of the University of
Iowa.
