C. S. Lewis, "That Hideous Strength,"..Mac-
millan, New York, 1946, $3.00, 459 pes.
IT IS NOT for any small talent that C. S. Lewis'
writing has excited a good bit of attention in
recent years. His work varies from such highly
imaginative novels as "Out of the Silent Planet"
and "Perelandra" to essays on "The Case for
Christianity" and "The Problem of Pain" and a
fascinating but unclassifyable book called "The
Screwtape Letters." Now the third member of
the trilogy of fantastic novels has been released,
bearing the title, "That Hideous Strength." Al-
though some of the characters are carried over
from the other books, this may be read by itself
without any loss of understanding.
Instead of placing the action on some far-
away planet, as he did in the first two novels,
Mr. Lewis has situated this new struggle between
good and evil, his favorite theme, on earth, in
the heart of England. It is built around the
local politics of a small college and involves a
young fellow of that college and his wife. Mark
Studdock becomes involved in the machinations
of the force of evil, represented by the National
Institute of Co-ordinated Experiments, through
his interest in college politics. His wife, Jane, is
drawn in because of her ability to drem realities
as they happen. > The real characters in this
masterful allegory are the forces of good and
evil personified. There is also a strange and
wonderful mixture of the magic of Merlin, which
adds to the feeling of terror embodied in the
These are the superficial elements which make
"That Hideous Strength" such fascinating read-
ing. But there is much more to the book. Implied
in the story are many of Mr. Lewis' ideas on the
problems of the world today, on theology and
the problem of evil. No matter what one may
think of the author's theological and political
beliefs, one cannot help but admire the fine
humor and satire with which he presents them.
This is good writing, and there is much food for
thought in what Mr. Lewis has to say. Certainly
the problems he poses are of greatest importance,
and certainly there is not enough thought de-
voted to them. The book cannot be read without
arousing a great deal of speculation about the
author's hypotheses. At the same time it is ex-
citing enough to render it difficult indeed to
stop reading long enough to speculate about

Vets in South
James Buttram, husky 25-pound manager
of the recent GI non-partisan group that wrested

political control from a machine in McMinn
County. said at Athens, Tenn., that he would not
recommend the same action in other parts of
the country.
Buttram, whose group of veterans now legally
holds office in Athens, disclosed in a United
Press interview that he had received letters from
all over the U.S.A. from ex-GI's complaining of
political corruption in their home towns. They
wanted to know if Buttram would prescribe the
Athens treatment as a remedy in their areas.
"I told them 'No'," Buttram said.
lIe said he though the McMinn County situ-
ation was unique and that violence employed
there was a last resort.

To The Editor:
Miss Kingsbury's plan to have a New York
photographer take all Ensian photographs has
me all riled up. Does this photographer adver-
tise in the Ensian, Gargoyle, Daily or any of our
publications? Has this photographer ever sup-
ported any of our drives or function? Why
" "
Dominic Says
SHORTCUTS to social grace are always inviting
us aside from the main road to wisdom. Re-
lease of the children once or twice a week for a
class in religion under Church instructors is the
latest. This is the most persistent call for in-
creased religious motivation. The argument runs
that what the public schools include in their
curriculum impresses the child as important and
what they exclude is judged to be trivial. There-
fore, move the Bible lesson, the culture of the
Jews, the Christian virtues and our religious
heritage away from Sunday to week-days and
certainly our children and youth will speedily
take on both the wisdom of the sages and the
attitudes of the saints. There seems to be gen-
eral agreement that religion is legitimate and
worthy of increased devotion. The zeal they dis-
play and the tenacity of the citizens who main-
tain Parochial schools of religion, are commend-
able and all Americans look with favor upon a
deepening of our culture at the point of spiritual
values. Whether the delegation of more time to
the religious leaders, after two-sevenths of every
week, Saturday and Sunday, have been frittered
away will mean increased religious devotion or
better behavior is under debate.
Recently, certain groups of religious citizens
in Detroit have formulated a somewhat different
proposal. They ask that every session of the
public school be opened with the Lord's Prayer
and the Ten Commandments. The selections
are moderate and would seem to be about the
simplest possible request. It is argued, that these
precise, statements of belief and hope cannot be
variously interpreted, that the teachers them-
selves and not clergymen shall lead in these re-
citals without comment, and. that neither Jew
nor Gentile, Christian nor pagan, can object to
this accepted minimum of religion. (Yet the
Jewish groups and Liberals do object in current
weeklies.) On the other hand,the League and
others sponsoring the idea are perhaps enter-
taining the belief that the sacred scripture, as
such, whether treated with indifference, used
perfunctorily or ambraced as a central core
of conviction will be understood by the children
alike in the second grade or junior high school,
and no adaptation of the curriculum of ideas
to given age levels is needed to guarantee the
desired result in life and conduct. While grant-
ing that the Lord's Prayer is germane as worship
and the Commandments essential to good edu-
cation, it does not follow automatically, as we
see it, that the end desired is a certainty.
Several basic facts should be kept in mind as
we restudy the culture and seek to enrich the
experience of our children and youth. First:
The education of the child in religion as in any
other experience or skill is the business of par-
ents and even the schools, the state, or the com-
munity, as well as the church must rely upon
the parents. The Oregon Decision of the Supreme
Court established this fact in 1911. That is
thirty-five years ago. Homes have done little on
a community basis during those thirty-five years
to improve the child's religious education.. The
International Council of Religious Education,
speaking for about thirty . of the Protestant
bodies, is unable to approach any community as
a community by any method other than denom-
inational or sectarian instruments. Catholic
Christians with even more persistence than in
former decades insist that the properly qualified
priest alone can teach religion. Hence, cooper-
ation on a community or geographical society-
wide basis is "impossible. American parents, ec-
clesiastical bodies, tradition, sectarian fragmen-
tation among the Bible-centered believers in all
good conscience have failed, if not defied, the
parents who may desire to have their children
and all children properly educated and certainly

disciplined in the religious attitude.t Secondly:
Many of the central spiritual values, without
which our culture would be pale and its behavior
.uncertain are being taught rather successfully
by the public schools, and this teaching reaches
fully ninety-five percent of the children in every
county in the United States. 'Yet our ecclesiast-
ical leaders are inclined to accept that great and
constant religious service without voicing ap-
proval or volunteering support. Not until the
accepted religious leaders 'have learned to ap-
preciate the training all children get in spiritual
values and begin to sustain the teachers rev-
erently in their community-wide cultural efforts
can we expect to attain that measure of cordial-
ity which is ideal climate in which to grow mem-
bers of a democratic state, or to move steadily
toward Christian goals. In other words, the main
road to wisdom and its converging collateral
paths are interdependent. Democratic culture is
woven delicately, and the life of a child is even
more sensitive and sacred.
-E. W. Blakenian
Counselor in Religious Education

should Ann Arbor photographers be deprived of
their rightful business because some New York
photogapher may be less expensive! Let the
senior have their pictures taken where they will
-from this New York concern if they so desire.
The editors of - the Ensian have no right to
compel us to give our business to anyone if we
aren't willing to do so.
Seniors unite -let's fight Miss Kingsbury's
plan and patronize those who support us. Mich-
igan merchants' taxes are supporting our uni-
versity and thus sending us through school, not
New York merchants'. The one ad this New
York concern will no doubt feel obligated to
give the Ensian can never equal the support-
moral as well as financial-that Ann Arbor mer-
chants have given us.
-Helen D. Horwitz
To the Editor:
THE SENIOR PICTURE plan published in
Friday's Daily is designed to save time, head-
aches, and money for the students and the Mich-
iganensian. It is the result of five months of
careful planning and has the complete approval
of the Board in Control of Student Publications.
A retouched glossy print made to uniform
specifications will be furnished to the 'Ensian
at less than a third of the cost Ann Arbor
photographers wished to charge for the same
service. Since the student is the one who actual-
ly pays for this service, the saving is his, not
ours. These uniform glossies eliminate charges
from the engraver for recropping that have cost
us $300 each year for the past two years.
Two Ann Arbor studios also refuse to do this
work unless the student promises to order $10
worth of pictures, in addtion to the fee he pays
to cover the cost of having his picture put in the
'Ensian. This fee would be between $4 and $5
if the work were done by Ann Arbor studios
while the charge under our plan will be between
$2 and $3 and the student is under no obligation
to order extra pictures.
Ann Arbor photographers were not able to
meet our engraving deadline requirements. So
in addition to the fact that more seniors will be
able to have their pictures in the 'Ensian because
of lower costs, the system was changed because
of necessity.

On Ginger
To the Editor:
SINCE Ray Ginger's slandering of the profit
motive system has not passed me by un-
noticed, I feel that I must offer some words in
his defense. A defense that is perhaps unwar-
ranted, as Mr. Ginger is entirely capable of de-
fending himself, and with a logic that will wither
the sophistries of Ken Herring and his like.
I would particularly like to take issue with
Mr. Herring's contention that the masses do not
share in the losses of a depression. It is common
knowledge that the losses which the masses do
incur, those of a job and savings which bring
possible destitution to their families, are the
most serious consequences of a depression.
There 'are many of us who will agree with Ray
Ginger that "so long as the profit motive is
allowed to dominate this country, there will be
new wars, and new wars will bring new scandals."
By this agreement we do not necessarily
condemn the capitalistic system in its essence
but rather bemoan the materialistic philosophy
that has eminated from the system's venera-
tion which causes ts to extoll the accumulation
of profit as man's highest accomplishment to
the minimizing of human and social achieve-
The use of the word "dominate" by Mr. Ginger
is the issue that I believe should be raised out of
the above quotation. According to my interpre-
tation of Mr. Herring's "editorial" a capitalistic
system must either dominate or be replaced.
That is to say, he infers that the making of

money must encompass the "American Way" of
life or a system other than capitalism must be
It is in the light of such specious refutations
that Ray Ginger's controversial writings are best

Word W eapons
WE ARE WELL AWARE that the right words
properly put together delivered at the right
spot at the right moment, can capture and kill.
Why not use words and ideas as an instrument
of peace, rather than as an instrument of death?
Why not, then, the establishment of a U.S.
Department of Information on the same status
as the War Department? Why not a U.S. De-
partment of Information to police the world with
words of truth?
