Will Be Held
Freshmen Rendezvous, sponsored
by the Student Religious Associa-
tion, will be held again this year at
Waldenwoods on a lake near Hart-
land, Michigan, Sept. 26-28.
This pre-orientation week-end is
designed to allow new students to get
acquainted with their fellow-class-
mates, upperclassmen, and members
of the faculty before the rush of ac-
tual college life begins.
The two days at Waldenwoods
will be devoted to a discussion of var-
ious religious and ethical problems
pertinent to the everyday life of en-
tering students. One of the panels
will be composed of faculty members
who will discuss the "Function of Re-
ligion in a Warring World," while a
student panel has been planned for
Sunday evening on the topic, "What
I Believe," the emphasis to be placed
on how one's beliefs affect one's ac-
tions. Two foreign students, Paul
Lim-Yuen, '43, and Fakhri Maluf,
grad., will introduce two religions of
the Far East, Confucianism and Mo-
hammedanism respectively.

* Radio at the University is under
the direction of Prof. Waldo Abbott
and Mr. David Owen. Radio pro-

Speech Clinic Is New, Unique
The University of Michigan Speech
Clinic was started in 1937 and has

The Speech Clinic is fully equipped
and operates in conjunction with the
Institute of Human Adjustment. The
Clinic has complete cooperation of
the Medical School, Dental School,
and University Hospital and is open
to all residents of the state, giving
services in voice and speech correc-

and persons majoring in this field of
speech find many opportunities to
gain practical experience.
