Presbyterians Seen as 'Federation'

(EDITOR'S NOTE:. This is the
ninth in a series of articles dealing
with the history and activities of
campus religious groups.)
The Rev. Dr. William S. Baker
views his Presbyterian students
as a "federation of several groups"
rather than as a single group.
They are a single group when at
worship in the First Presbyterian
Church each Sunday, but there
are a variety of students organi-
zations for study and fellowship.
Graduate students meet each
Friday night for supper, study and
discussion, sometimes keynoted by
a guest speaker. Young married
students and Ann Arbor residents
have a separate organization, too
-the Mariners. Dr. Baker de-
scribed both groups as very active
and successful.
Helps Students
The large body of Presbyterian
undergraduates at the University
belongs to the Presbyterian Cam-
pus Christian Fellowship. Dr.
Baker talked of the interests and
goals of the undergraduate group,
but he related these interests and-
goals to the other groups, too.
In general terms, Dr. Baker
said, the PCCF functions to "help
students understand more deeply
the Christian faith."
Students have the opportunity
to commit themselves to religious
beliefs or reaffirm their present
beliefs. The Fellowship also en-
courages students to "find ways
of expressing their faith" in their
daily campus life, he said.
Offers Discussion
The Sunday night program of
supper and discussion at which
faculty members often speak is an
important part of the group's ac-
It brings faculty and students
together in a non-academic at-
mosphere and provides discussion
time for such problems as what

is meant by "faith," the "conflict
between science and religion" and
gaining an understanding of oth-
er religious faiths.
Bible study and seminars are
also scheduled by the PCCF. Stu-
dents often talk over social prob-
lems, but action on these prob-
lems is left "pretty much up to
the individual," Dr. Baker said.
A large part of Dr. Baker's work
is in counseling his students on
religious matters. He is assisted in
this work by Patricia Pickett.
Dr. Baker encourages his stu-
dents to "take an active leader-
ship in other campus organiza-
tions." One way of expressing
Christian faith, he said, is by par-
ticipation in secular activities.
