Church Groups
Unite To Study
World's Faiths
Association Holds Weekly
Roundtable Discussions
Sundays For Freshmen
In order that Catholics, Jews, Prot-
estants and Oriental students may en-
joy and profit from a better under-
standing of their own faiths and the
religions represented on the Campus,
the University sponsors the Student
Religious Association.
By means of lectures, classes, dis-;
cussions, and social service, the Asso-
ciation provides an opportunity for
students to obtain a knowledge of the
theology and history of their re-
ligions, and the facts of the applica-
tion of religion in every-day life.
The Association cooperates actively
with the churches of Ann Arbor in
providing a full religious program for
students at. the University. During,
the year there will be popular lectures
on religion and more 'technical lec-
tures for those who want to study
some phase of religion more exten-
sively. A study of religious problems
will be made by classes organized for
that purpose. Opportunities for dis-
cussion are provided at the Fireside
Session each Thursday night, when
members of the faculty discuss in-
formally their own views on religion.
The Freshman Roundtable, which
meets at 4 p.m. Sundays brings to-
gether the freshmen to hear out-
standing faculty-members whose edu-
cational talks are followed by round-
table discussions under the direction
of upperclassmen.
The Association also sponsors the
Fellowship of Reconciliation, n or-
ganization of students which believes
that violence in any form should not
be condoned and is preparing a per-
sonal and social philosophy based on
reconciliation rather than violence.
Through the Social Service Com-
mittee, students are able to be of
service to people confined in the hos-
pital, to work in Ann Arbor welfare
agencies and to make trips to study
institutions and social problems in
the Ann Arbor vicinity. The Associa-

Leisure time may also be spent in
the Pendleton Library, which con-
tains a collection of current periodi-
cals, "best sellers," and classics. The
north lounge serves as a meeting place
between classes, an informal study
hall and meeting place for forum dis-
cussions. The south lounge is a game
room, provided with checker tables
and chess and checker sets.
A barber shop is located in the
basement for faculty members and
students, and meeting rooms are
available throughout the building for
the use of campus organizations and
local clubs.

Interfraternity Council and Congress'
Executive and District Councils, and
on the ground floor are the headquar-
ters of the Executive Committee of
the Union.
During the year informal dances
are held on Friday and Saturday eve-
nings, with music furnished by a stu-
dent orchestra. The Union Formal,
usually held in November, is' a feature
of the Michigan social calendar.
Other Union-sponsored programs

faculty members speak on subjects of
current interest. Buffet dinners, mak-
ing for 'closer relations among faculty
members and students, on. Sundays;
and Open House, held twice each year.
