One of the less well known cam-
pus religious organizations is the
Baha'i group.
The student group of this re-
ligious faith holds weekly meet-
ings at 8 p.m. on Thursday at the
League while an open meeting for
both students and townspeople
will be held at 8 p.m. on Thurs-
day of this week at the home of
Mrs. Marie Esterer at 517 Oswego.
The open meeting will be held-
weekly on Wednesdays beginning
next week.
Baha'is in over 1400 localities
of the U. S. and in 240 countries
and territories of the world, from
widely varied religious, ethnic and
racial backgrounds, are joining in
the commemoration of the birth-
day of Baha'u'llah this month.
1Baha'u'llah, a Persian word
meaning the "glory of God", was

born on Nov. 12, 1817 in Teheran,
In 1863 Baha'u'llah publically
proclaimed "His" mission as the
"Promised One" of all religions in
inaugurating a new and divine
civilization that would 'establish
world unity and peace.
Baha'u'llah stated that "the
earth is but one country and all
mankind its citizens". His convic-
tions had a prophetic conviction
that the oneness of mankind and
world peace are the will of God
for humanity in this age.
Baha'is point out that the com-
ing realization of this great hope
is evident both in the rapid growth
and accomplishments of their in-
fant faith and in the rise of moral
and social forces dedicated to
mankind's common welfare.
