The religious music seminar con-
sists of the presentation of excerpts
from the world's foremost religious
music played on records. Analyses
and comments by the director of this
division are also a regular part of
the program. These programs are not
designed primarily for music majors

Performing a vital economic func-
tion and responding to the need for s
development of inter-racial under-
standing, campus cooperative houses
continue for the thirteenth year tc
operate under the principles evolved
in Rochdale, England, a century ago
Campus Co-op houses were first
organized in the depths of the depres-
sion and were the means by which
many students were enabled to re-
main in school. By renting a house
and doing their own food-purchas-
ing, cooking, and cleaning they were
able to effect great savings.
For Men and Women
Today there are five cooperative
houses on campus, three for girls
and two for men. They have banded
together to form the Inter-Coopera-
tive Council (ICC), which serves a
the executive organization for the
group. The Council meets semi-
monthly to formulate long-range
policies and thrash out immediate
The physical set-up at the various
houses is much the same as that
developed by the hardy pioneers who
introduced the plan on campus. In
each house a president, a treasurer
and various other officers are elected
by the house members. House work
is apportioned equitably among the
group. House meetings are called at
frequent intervals to discuss matters
that arise in the day-by-day process
of running the house.
Group purchasing has long beer
an important factor in campus co-
operative economy. By integrating

their menus and pooling their pu
chases co-ops have been able to e
fect the savings inherent in mass bu
ing. An ICC purchaser studies t
food situation and plans a buyir
program which will yield the ult
mate in nutrition, palatability ar
Social, Educational Programs
Apart from the purely functior
aspects of co-op life, there is a wel
ing together of the entire gro
through a series of social and ed
cational programs. Discussions
which all co-opers gather are fi
quently arranged by a special con
mittee delegated for that purpose
Prominent guest speakers are oft
invited to co-op suppers. They r
main to lead forums on various a
pects of co-op life. Social gathe
ings are another feature of co-op 11
Buffet lunches are served and the
is usually some dancing.

Special Welcome for Students'

Bringing students together in an
inter - denominational atmosphere,

annual program.
Student guilds and regular Sunday
worship services of Ann Arbor
churches, willehave a special wel-
come for all new students during the
fall term..
Approximately 30 religious groups

The University counselor in reli-
gious education, Dr. Edward W.
Blakeman, is available for consulta-

cies might send engineers and of-

in airport design and construction.
A test cell for experimental work
on aircraft engines will be set up at
Willow Run by the Department of
Mechanical Engineering, Prof. Ran-
som S. Hawley, chairman of that
department said. Such a test cell
would be too big and dangerous to
incorporate with regular laboratory
procedure here on campus, he ex-
plained. "We would also like to carry
on automobile road tests," he said,
"and tests on jet propulsion engines
and gas turbines at Willow Run."
The Department of Chemical and
Metallurgical Engineering would like
to carry on some high pressure ex-
periments, lubricant tests and other
research projects at Willow Run, Dr.
George G. Brown, chairman of that
department said.
Prof. Roger L. Morrison of the
Highway Engineering and Transport
Division of the Department of Civil

Insight Accents
Serious Issues-
Insight, Michigan's youngest pub-
lication, is one of the few serious
magazines published by students on
an American campus, according to
its editor, Bob Carneiro.
Established last spring to present
articles of interest and concern to
the student body, Insight has con-
tained an expose of "Racial Discrim-
'ination at Michigan," a descriptive
feature on the life of the commuting
veterans living at Willow Village, and
articles on the Student Legislature
when that group was inthe process
of being organized last semester.
In keeping with a policy of high-
lighting one controversial subject in
each issue, Insight has published
articles pro and con on the frater-
nity-sorority question and on re-

Williams Guild at the First Baptist
Church, Wesleyan Foundation at the
First Methodist Church, Gamma Del-
ta (Lutheran Student Chapel) at the
New Lutheran Chapel and student
center, the Lutheran Student Associ-
ation, the Congregational-Disciples
Guild, and Canterbury Club at St.
Andrews Episcopal Church.
Inter-Guild, an organization which
represents the above groups, leads in
making plans for greater cooperation
among the Protestant churches.
Catholic students will find a special
chapel for them, St. Mary's near
campus, while Jewish students will
be welcomed at the Hillel Founda-
tion, on Hill and Haven Streets.

Newman lub
Is Center for
Catholic Faith
Serving the Catholic students on
campus both educationally and soc-
ially is the Newman Club, local chap-
ter of the National Federation of
Newman Clubs.
The Newman Club was reorganized
in 1944 and now boasts a member-
ship of over 550 Catholic students.
Its headquarters are in St. Mary's
Chapel, a church just off the cam-
pus. Among the facilities at the
Chapel are a well-stocked library
and a large club-room.
Club Functions Described
Among the regular functions of the
Club are Wednesday evening, lec-
tures and discussions of particular
interest to Catholic students, and
Friday evening social get-togethers
which offer dancing, entertainment,
games and refreshments. In ad-
dition an annual formal ball is spon-
sored by the Newman Club.
The spiritual advisors of the group
are Father Bradley and Father Frank
McPhillips, and they are always on
hand to solve any personal problems
that may arise. They also officiate
at the lectures and discussions.
Current president of the Newman
Club is Arthur (Pat) Barkey. There
are two vice-presidents, one male
and one co-ed. Aiding them is an
executive committee of ten students
who are assigned specific tasks and
share in handling the various func-
tions sponsored by the group.








Hillel .Serves
Jewish Faith

Foundation Provides
Cultural Opportunities
B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation, now
celebrating its twentieth anniversary
at Michigan performs social, cultural
and religious functions for Jewish
students and provides them with a
place to study, learn and exchange
Under the leadership of Rabbi
Herschel Lyman, a student council
of 25 members and a staff of student'
directors, the Foundation will con-
tinue its program of films, concerts,
athletics, fireside discussions, Inter-
faith nights, personal counsel and
services on Friday nights and other
religious holidays.
Students interested in drama or
writing can express their talents
through the Hillel Players or the
Hillel News. The .News is a monthly
journal and the players, a student
theatrical organization entertaining
here and at B'nai B'rith lodges
throughout the state. For others,
whose talents lie in the photographic
field, the Foundation provides a fully
equipped darkroom.
Last year, as part of the organiza-
tion's study plan, there were courses
in beginning, intermediate, and ad-
vanced Hebrew and a seminar on
modern Jewish problems entitled
"Judaism in Transit." Other courses
in Jewish history, ethics, customs and
folkways are offered on demand.
Students are invited to take advan-
tage of Hillel's large phonograph
record collection and the well stocked
Louis Weiss Memorial Library. The,
library, which contains over 1600 vol-
umes, including history, biography

urdays and Sundays until Univer-
sity closing hours. The Foundation
