Buck, who startled the staid cam-

whip, is perhaps best remembered
for his series of wacky classiftd ads

had anyone found it? The Free Press

Summer Formal
Will Be Given
Even the advertising for a semi-
formal dance to be sponsored by the
Institute of Aeronautical Sciences
carries the aeronautical touch.
"It's in the air" was the IAS
approach to announcement of the
dance to be held Friday, Aug. 10,
in the League Ballroom. Leroy Smith
and his 12-piece orchestra will play
for this first semi-formal public dance

Fram Speaks on
'Th,? Jewish Home'
The Jewish home has been the
principal instrument of Jewish reli-
gious education through the ages,
Rabbi Leon Fram declared in the
second Religious -Education lecture
Interpreting the motivation of the
Jewish people in their great loyalty
to the home, Rabbi Fram said that
Jewish education has been education
for survival and for the continuance
of such high universal values of the
Jews as human dignity and equality.
"The Jews survived through the
Middle Ages because the home became
a fortress and a refuge. During that
time the Jews were offered all sorts
of temptations to convert, but many
were able to resist because of the
happiness they found in their homes,"
according to Rabbi Fram.
All Jewish celebrations, he said,
are essentially family celebrations so
arranged as to appeal to children.
Children's songs and games are an in-
tegral part of many of the ceremo-
"When I speak of the Jewish home,
I speak, to a certain extent, with nos-
talgia. For many of the ceremonials
are neglected in hundreds of Jewish
homes today," Rabbi Fram said.

TAKES CHARTER TO WHITE HOUSE-Garrett Whiteside, clerk of

'Purpose Essential
In Life' Says Ligon
A dominating purpose is essential
to a happy and useful human life,
Prof. Ernest Ligon of Union College
asserted in the first of a series of
addresses on Religious Education
Stressing the fact that character is
determined largely by evaluative at-
titudes translated into action, Prof.
Ligon declared that not more than
one out of 100,000 people who have
the inherited capacity to become
great do so.
Speaking before an audience of
Sunday school teachers and others
interested in attitude development,
Prof. Ligon said that religious educa-
tion and character education are
overlapping, but are not identical.
"If you want to produce-character,
you've got to produce character as
your main object. You cannot do it
indirectly through religion," he com-
Prof. Ligon will deliver a lecture
open to the public at 7:30 p. m.
EWT (6:30 p. m. CWT) every evening
for the next two weeks.

stitute, Madison, Wisconsin, has been

Ligon Will Speak

. . .

The significance and formation of
the evaluative attitudes is the theme
of Prof. Ernest Ligon's lecture to be
given at 4 p. m. EWT (3 p. m. CWT)
today in the University High School
Prof. Ligon makes his trait-habit
emphasis depend upon how well
these evaluative attitudes are taught.
Later behaviour and happiness de-
pends very largely upon development
of goals and a genius in achieving
them, according to Prif. Ligon.
"If one could hear Dr. Ligon but
once," said Dr. Edward Blakeman,
University Religious Counselor, "we
would suggest that you hear this lee-
_ ture and come prepared to ask ques-
tions." The lecture is open to the
