ONCE AGAIN students on campus are asked
to contribute to the University Fresh Air
Camp for boys. This is a periodic request and has
become familiar through the years. Familiarity
may breed forgetfulness. It would be well to re-
fresh your memory and recall again the purpose
of your contribution.
Fresh Air Camp is on a hill above Patterson
Lake about twenty four miles from Ann Arbor.
All the activities of any summer camp are carried
out. There is swim iling, hiking, and handicraft
to mention a few activities of the well organized
recreational program.
This camp is more than the ordinary play-
ground. The camp aids these youngsters in ad-
justing to the home, school, or community. There
is a well integrated program which combines the
work of social agencies, psychologists and teach--
ers in helping to solve the boys problems.
The informal camp setting away from the
everyday atmosphere gives the counselor an op-
portunity to see the boys he studies operate in
groups. Fresh Air Camp thus helps university
students gain invaluable experience in actual ad-
justment problems.
The value of your contribution cannot be mea-
sured in mere words. Combined with other con-
tributions it makes possible a happy summer for
over a hundred boys. It makes possible a form of
teacher educational experience which cannot be
obtained in the standard school situation. It aids
in assisting in the search for a solution to the
social problems in the United States..
Help keep the camp functioning. Help these
youngsters to reach a happy life. Buy a Tag
Tuesday.

... for the Philippines
To the Editor:
IRECOMMEND the University of the Philip-
pines.
With the acquisition of the Philippines by the
United States, President McKinley began your
altruistic policy when in his instructions to the
first Philippine Commission, he said: "The Phil-
ippines is ours not to exploit but to teach in the
art of self-government." At about the same
time the Japanese began a program of insidious'
propaganda. Various means were employed to
put across the idea that we were blood brothers.
When the Japanese bombed the Philippines in
1941, leaflets were scattered saying they came to
liberate us from the bondage of the white race.
Our people wrote their answer to the Jap-
anese at Bataan, in the blood of their own
sons, many of whom were at one time students
of the University of the Philippines. During
the long period of Japanese occupation, Fili-
pino guerilla bands appeared spontaneously,
led in most cases by students of the University
of the Philippines.
The University of the Philippines has played
an important role in this war. Why have its
students taken on themselves so much of this
leadership in favor of America? The answer is
found in the fact that this University has em-
bodied to the Filipino youth that for which
America stands.
The origin of this institution goes back to
1908 when it started out with an enrollment of
a few hundred, which by 1941 had increased to
7,000. In its relation to other universities, the
University of the Philippines has been especially
close to our own University of Michigan. Dean
Worcester of the University of Michigan was the
chairman of the first Philippine Commission;
Professor Hayden, the late head of the depart-
ment of Political Science, was a former exchange
professor at the University of the Philippines;
Justice Frank Murphy, Justice Malcolm, Profes-
sor Swinton, Professor Bartlett, and Professor
Carrothers are among the many Michigan men
interested in the Philippines.
The University of the Philippines needs your
help, for today one can see only barbed wires
and cement rubble where the proud, modern
buildings of The University once stood. Our
library, which made up the greatest collection
of Western books in the Orient, has been
burned by the Japanese; and, finally, our in-
tellectuals, wherever possible, have been meth-
odically exterminated to prevent our nation
with itsdemocratic ideals from rising again.
The University of the Philippines, the bulwark
of American democratic ideals, should live
again! -Rafaelita Hilario Soriano
By WILLIAM S. GOLDSTEIN
THE MORE we think about it the harder it is
to justify enrolling in the University's sum-
mer school. Here it is only a couple of weeks
past registration, and already we've got to start
dropping a course or two; there just isn't time.
We can remember when we thought that Mich-
igan left no time for the pursuit of happiness.
(Happiness is a young coed from South Orange,
New Jersey, who enrolled in a couple of snap
courses,-Garter Design, I and II). It was only
this Spring that we thought Michigan left little
time for extra-curricular pleasures. We now find
that our interest in Michigan's fair coeds leaves
no time for school.
* * *
We knew one fellow (we'll call him Alcatraz,
- that's his pen-name) who went to school
all year long, Summers and all, just to obtain
extra degrees. He ended up with three: he
started out with a bachelor of arts in history.
Then he went to law school where he received
his second degree as doctor of law. Ile worked
as a mouthpiece for a Detroit gang and was
picked up by the police who gave him the third
degree.
* * *
Of course there are some who have jobs dur-

ing the winter and only have time for school in
the summer. But then we heard about one coed
who worked her way through school all year
long: in the Winter she worked her father and
in the Summer, her .boy friend. For spending'
money she uses the small fortune that they'
found sewed up in the bustle of an aunt who
passed away. Sewed up in that bustle were
1,000 bucks,--which is a lot of money to leave
behind.

. for U. of Warsaw
To the Editor.
THE STUDENT ORGANIZATION for Interna-
tional Cooperation presumably is devoted to
the interests of cooperation between the youth of
other nations and that of the United States. A
means of doing this is to aid universities in war-
torn and devastated countries.
We should keep this purpose in mind. Po-
litical idealogy or governmental diplomatic as-
pirations are not the issue. Our prime objec-
tive is to aid a foreign university. Selecting the
university is an important decision and it must
be carefully made.
I spent only three years in the Nazi-occupied
Warsaw, but in those three years I witnessed the
unbelievable destruction of the University of
Warsaw and other cultural centers such as the
Grand Opera House and the famed Art Galleries.
At the present time, there is nothing left, not
even the university buildings. Poland has suf-
fered perhaps more in this war than any other
nation in Europe, at the expense of its brave-
hearted, determined youth, at the expense of its
educational and cultural enterprises acquired to
a large extent in the twenty years of its inde-
pendence.
Other nations have the possibility of gov-
ermental financial aid-aid from governments
which have existed throughout the war. Po-
land has not. We all know that Poland has had
a drastic change in government. Because of
this, the help to th1e University of Warsaw will
not immediately be forthcoming. It is up to us
to aid it-not for political but for cultural rea-
sons.

'RANGEFINDER:-
New World
By JOHN A. MEREWETHER
THE YOUTH of today have been brought up
according to a singularly hardy system. Into
the peace and quiet of our infancy came the roar
of the Kaiser's guns. Our childhood was filled
with tales, new-styled tales, of a gilt-edged
future, of Rolls-Royces and a million-dollar Par-
adise. Having adjusted from war to prosperity,
we found our high school days spent during the
great world depression of 1929-40.
And then as if that weren't enough, with
1940 the sporadic war got down to business in
earnest and many of us stepped from high
school or college graduation exercises into the
armed forces of our country. That was a com-
mencement indeed, the beginning of the pay-
ment upon the debt our parents ran up upon
the future
Is it any wonder that today the youth of
America, of the entire world for that matter,
are slightly skeptical of their parents' wisdom
in investing in Versailles Treaties and a Hard-
ing-Hoover Heaven? Is it any wonder that the
youth today are slightly resentful of how the
"older generation" hocked the future of their
children?
How can the older generation caution us and
expect us to listen to them? We can see the
poisonous products of their counsel. We can
always turn and question the wisdom of their
ways. Let us look at the record. A false econ-
omic boom bounded by two world wars and a
great world wide depression. That makes it
about 3 to 1 in favor of a new point of view
you might say.
With such a score we doubt some of the old
gds, kings, and politicians and their old myopic
partial views of life. We must build in turn a
wider view. The new day shall belong to the
veterans of this war, our President has said. In
a sense this is correct. We who worked, fought,
suffered and. died for this world mean to have
a piece of it for ourselves.
We want peace, full employment, 60 million
jobs, freedom from fear and want,- all the
varied luscious fruits of peace and plenty. We
have been too thirsty too long.
Oh, Come Now!

"THIS FULL EMPLOYMENT bill is a wolf in
sheep's clothing. The right to a job is a
communistic doctrine."-Rep. Woodruff, Con-
gressional Record, June 29, 1945.
"Some Catholics in this country are lined up
with some rabbis trying to bring about racial
equality for the niggers. Some of my best friends
are Catholics. But you can't get away from the
fact that some of them are rotten."-Senator
Bilbo, quoted in PM, June 29, 1945.
Oh, come now, gentlemen!
-Betty Roth

Dominie Says
THE PARTICIPATION of Russia
and China with other powers in
an intercultural reconstruction brings
every scale of values before us for
review.
What constitutes an adequate
end of communal living in Ger-
many, Russia, Poland, Greece or
India? That is the second type of
problem before every religious edu-
cator. The first one is more per-
sonal; how can man, the end prod-
uct of the infinite push of life,
relate himself adequately to the
dynamic or the genesis of it all, to
God, the ordainer of life?
To these basic questions the Rus-
sian reply is a dual one: (1) After
twenty years of promotion of athe-
ism by Soviet officials, after twenty
years of a steady drive against the
Christian Church and at the end of
twenty years of instruction in the
public schools as to a deterministic
philosophy it was estimated by Paul
B. Anderson and others in 1937, that
in the U.S.S.R. seventy per cent of
the Orthodox people continued to
conduct or attend worship, that over
one-half conducted Christian family
devotions and that vast numbers cel-
ebrated elaborately all of the high
days of the Christian calendar; (2)
Though the Soviets had taken from
the Church all of the schools, from
elementary to university, and trans-
ferred the social agencies to the
USSR state, the people found them-
selves in their civic unit practicing
all those basic religious virtues, by
which the Christian obeys the in-
junction, "Do unto them as ye would
that they should do unto you" but of
these social agencies though man-
aged by the controlling party are
financed by the state as a part of
the communal living in which all are
engaged.
Now, while it is deplorable that
for almost a generation there has
been no commerce, in fact has been
deep hatred and fear, between
these two expressions of religion in
modern Russia, we -have to admit,
that the war which was certain to
result either in extinction of the
US$R or the eclipse of Germany,
has brought the religion of the
Russian people and the economy of
that people to a new basis of un-
derstanding, The defense struggle,
entered into as a mass effort in
every hamlet, became a vast spiri-
tual event
IN TURN the USSR has reconsid-
ered its rejection of religion. In
1942 and again in 1944 the Soviets
relaxed given restrictions. (1) A
Council of Religion has been created
and all religions as well as the Ortho-
dox are given freedom. In Moscow
the result was the establishment of
no less than fifty new congregations.
(2) Freedom to worship was given to
Orthodox Clergy and their people
over all of Russia. The member-
ship is something over 90,000,000.
(3) One hundred fifty of the clergy
who have long been prisoners on re-
ligious and social grounds were re-
leased from jail. (4) The Soviet's
school manual which contained many
attacks on the Church, has been re-
vised, removing from its pages every
opposition to religious belief. (5) The
"Godless Union," a weekly paper
distributed widely among the people
for the past twenty years as a means
of praising atheism and discouraging
Christian faith, has suspended publi-
cation. (6) Roman Catholic chaplains
have been permitted to the Polish
Catholic soldiers in the armed forces
of Russia. (7) Once more religious
symbols may be sold and freely pur-
chased. (8) Public offices of a politi-
cal nature have been opened to
priests. A priest may be a citizen.
(9) Premier Stalin approved the re-
turn of all Patriarchs to their former

status. (10) The Soviet government
endorsed an invitation by the Central
Metropolitan to an Archbishop of the
Anglican Church of England to come
to Moscow for a conference upon in-
ter-religious matters.
A new spirit promises to associate
the mystical phase of religion anew
with the social action of the Sovi-
ets. The Russian culture in this
postwar epoch promises to exhibit
not the fatalism of orthodoxy nor
the studied revolt of a revolutionary
epoch, but a free aspiration for per-
fectioi on the part of a mystical
but chastened people.

Counselor in Religious Education

Conference

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS will have the rare
opportunity this week and next to hear
twenty men of note in their fields speak on
various phases of the peace to which they have
devoted special study.
The Conference on the United States in the
Postwar World will include lectures by Presi-
ident Alexander G. Ruthven; Senator Homer
Ferguson; President James P. Baxter III., of
Williams College, historian of the Office of Sci-
entific Research and Development; and Prof.
Jacob Viner, noted University of Chicago econo-
mist.
We, as university students, have a special re-
sponsibility to know the problems of the peace
and to hear whatthe experts have to say about
these problems. The purpose of this Conference
is not to solve any problems, but to make them
clear, to suggest possible solutions and to stimu-
late interest in them.
