Council Seeks
Peace Solution
Following War
Organized Day After Raid
On Hawaians; Ruthven
Keynoted First Meeting
Even midst the present din of bat-
tle and war preparations, the Uni-
versity Post-War Council is already
studying the difficult problems of a
just peace that will forestall the com-
inig of World War III.
Organized last Dec. 8, the day af-
ter Pearl Harbor, the Post War
Council has since that date spon-
sored numerous lectures, conferences
and panels on the subject of peace
problems in a world of conflicting
ideologies and vested interests.
Ruthven Keynotes
The first Conference on post-war
problems sponsored by the Post-War
Council was held in the Rackham
Auditorium, April 17 and 18, 1942.
The Conference was officially opened
by President Ruthven, and keynote
speakers included Dr. J. Donald
Kingsley of Antioch College and Dr.
Francis McMahon of Notre Dame
Following the keynote speeches,
the Conference split into three panel
discussion groups that treated, re-
spectively, the political, social and
Economic aspects of the world re-
settlement problem.
During the past summer, the Pot-
War Council has sponsored a series
f weekly meetings, including talks,
anels and discussion periods on var-
uus phases of post-war reorganiza-
on problems. Typical problems dis-
ussed in the summer meetings were:
ttitude toward a Post-War Ger-
any; The Future of Nationalism;
conmic Reconstruction, and other
Ilied topics.
Future Plans
The activities of the Council will
ontinue during the coming year, and
ter this year the Council plans to
raw up a set of principles to guide
he world toward a sane conduct af-
er the war.
Though the war is yet far from be-
ng won by the democracies, and our
aximum energies must be placed
ehind the war effort, the Post-War
ouncil feels that lasting values can
e derived from the present sacrifice
.nly if we begin now to solve the
problem of a lasting peace, so that
ve may not again be swept unsus-
,ectingly into another Versailles.-
Faculty advisors to the Council ar
President Ruthven, Dr. EdwardW
Blakeman, religious counselor, Prof
James K. Pollock, of the political sci-
ence department, Prof. Preston Slo-
son of the history department and
Prof. Leonard L. Watkins of the ec-
onomics department.

ested in the problems of post-war

Is Campus Project
Originating at a party sponsored
by the Abe Lincoln Cooperative
House Feb. 20, 1942, the Bomber-
Scholarship plan has grown into a
major all-campus project.
The first step to be taken after
the Linera House party started the
ball rolling with a collection of $12,
was the organization of a committee
representing major campus groups to
administer the project. The aim of

the Bomber-Scholarship committee
is to collect $100,000 for the purchase
of defense bonds-enough money for
the government to buy a bomber.

On Religi)Jons
In Ava(ilible
Because the ITniversity feel that
personal, academiiic and social 1rob-
lems in the field of religion need
prompt review by experienced per-
sons, the office of the Counselor in
Religious Education exists for all
students regardless ef affiliation.
The office is under the direction of
Dr. Edward W. Blakeman who i'
available from 11 to 12 and from .3
to 5 p. m. each day at Room 9 Uni-
versity Hall,
Dr. Blakeman who took over the
position of Counselor in Religion
1when it wa's inlaugurated tena years
ago, has outlined his work itn thi
manner. "It is highly desirable to
have someone available for new stu-
dents to consult with on personal
problems, science-religion conflict--,
and eases of emotional tension.
While there are many questions that
we -can't answer we try to break the
big problems down into little ones so
that the student can solve them one
by one."
The program is designed, to a large
degree, to make the University, de-
spite its size, as warm and personal
as a small college.
Dr. Blakeman also serves as a
guide for those freshman and sopho-
mores interested in the degree pro-
gram in Religion and E lhics,
