Religion Called
Symbolic Art
By Blakeman
Youth's Faith Is Termed
'A Real Love Affair'
By Religious Head
"Religion is an art. It is taught by
symbols, not vocalization. We have
tried too much to vocalize our reli-
gion when we should be symbolizing
it, Dr. Blakeman, Religious Counselor
on the campus, said Thursday morn-
ing in a talk before the Guidance
In relating his discussion to Reli-
gious Counseling Dr. Blakeman
pointed out that we must recognize
first the nature of the child, secon
the function of religion in relation
to this nature, and third the con-
flicts in our culture.
Religion Like Love
Religion for youth is like a love
affair. It has all the aspects of a
real love affair. It is the child's ex-
pression of love between himself and
the highest thing he knows-God.
Children are great lovers. This love
affair offers. a love on either end;
the child towards his God, and God
towards the child. This love imposes
a behavior, a code (this is the source
of ethics), and that behavior is de-
termined by how the child pictures
his beloved. As we in life seek to
please, seek to have contact with
that person whom we love, so the
child does toward his God. The child
seeks these frequent contacts with his
lover, this renewal-it accounts for
worship, ritual, ceremony. Each
cpntact must be meaningful, or he
loses interest and the love dies.
Three Drives
To help the child in his religious
connections we must understand the
three fundamental drives in the
child: existence-the will to live;
reproduction-the desire to create;
and third, the hard drive-the urge
to have companionship-to be to-
Dr. Blakeman discussed further,
"These drives are diverse. They push
the child as from behind. If he has
no ideal, no goal, he is like a sting
and curls up. The ideal, pulling
ahead with purpose will unify these
drives and integrate the person."
Opportunity was provided for
questions from the group and a num-
ber of students especially interested
were invited to confer with Dr.
Blakeman in an informal discussion.

Morgenthau Announces
Income Tax Deduction
WASHINGTON, July 3. -()-
Treasury Secretary Morgenthau to-
day offered a slight discount to any-
one who wants to pay income and
excess profits taxes in advance.
He announced that, through the
banks, the Treasury would put on

sale August 1 two types of tax notes.
A person could buy them periodically
-say one a month-and later turn
them back to the Government in
payment for taxes.

a. p. blausteii's
(Editor's Note: Today's column is written by Art Hill, assistant sports editor
of The Daily during the regular session.)
IT HAS COME to our attention, through devious channels never before in
error, that a Union poolroom habitue voiced the opinion the other day
that the major league All-Star game ought to be a cinch for the National
"Why?" asked his companion in sport.
"Too much pitching," replied the expert laconically as he dropped the
seven ball into the corner pocket.
"Oh," said the other knowingly and, while his companion racked up
the ivories for the next game, he hurried out to find a sucker.
We only wish he had come to us. Because, try as we will (and we
won't, very hard), we can't see anything but a victory for the representa-
tives of the junior loop come Tuesday.
The game has been ballyhooed as a clash of pitching against power. But
this is only part of the story. The National Leaguers may have a little edge
in the hurling department but not enough to compensate for the lineup of
sluggers that their opponents will put on the field.
We don't know who Manager Del Baker will have in his starting com-
bination but an outfield composed of Jeff Heath, Ted Williams and Joe
DiMaggio would look pretty good. DiMaggio is hitting. 353; Heath, .370
and the lanky lad from Boston is clouting the apple for a mark of .401. You
can't top that.
Add an infield made up of Rudy York, Bobby Doerr, Cecil Travis,
and Ken Keltner, put Bill Dickey behind the plate and you have an
outfit that should bat several runs across the plate before the ninth
inning rolls around.
Now, we come to the pitching department, the place Where the National
Leaguers are supposed to have the edge. First of all, the home club will
throw a lad named Fellerat the boys in gray. Following him, Baker might
send Thornton Lee of the White Sox into the game for the next three in-
nings and finish up with Detroit's Al Benton.
There may be some question about Benton. Baker might be accused of
favoritism if Al didn't do well and this consideration might induce him to
use someone else. We hope he doesn't. For a year and a half the big Irish-
man has been the best relief pitcher in the game and, as far as we're con-
cerned, there is no one more fitted to set the visitors down for the final
three innings.
We predict a decisive victory for the American League. We may be
wrong. But we can't get over that power. When you have a team on which
any player is just as likely as not to knock the ball out of the park, that
team should be a favorite. We like the home club.
