Course Open
For Juniors
Knowledge of French,
German Is Required
The University's degree program
in Religion and Ethics is a field
of concentration open to juniors
in the literary college this fall.
Consisting of three divisions, the
program contains courses bearing
upon religion as an aspect of civ-
ilization, thought and social rela-
Students entering the program
should contact a member of the
committee which includes Profes-
sors William Frankena, chairman,
DeWitt H. Parker, John F. Shep-
ard, William H. Worrell, Arthur E.
Wood and Howard Y. McClusky.
Freshmen who want to prepare
for that program should acquire
a reading knowledge of French or
German and take some philosophy
and psychology courses in their
sophomore years.
Dr. Edward W. Blakeman, re-
search consultant in religious edu-
cation writes that "no student is
getting a higher education in our
era unless he is learning to relate
the great Religions: Hinduism,
Judaism, Christianity, Zoroaster-
anism and Islam to old Persia
their birthplace (now Iran). Nor
is he getting a Religious Education
if he fails to develop in his mind
his personality, his emotions, the
loves and hates of the saints who
originated Ahimsa the essence of
Hinduism; Justice the key to Ju-
daism; Love, the center of Chris-
tianity; Benevolence the central
motive of Zoroaster; and Unity or
Oneness of God, the appeal of Mo-
A literary college programming
committee had this to say about
non-sectarian religious education:
"The history of thought cannot
be made complete without includ-
ing the history of the great re-
ligions. Psychology, philosophy,
sociology, and anthropology would
all be incomplete without the in-
clusion of their religious aspects.
Art has often found its climax in
religious expression."
And further on the statement
discusses the planning of courses
for the degree program: "The
course material has been arranged,
therefore, to emphasize the fact
that religion is basically a part
of life and to enable the student to
comprehend it, first as an aspect
of civilization, second as an aspect
of thought, and third as an aspect
of social relationships and insti-
Dr. Blakeman advises students
to "get Philosophy of Religion of
the philosophers, over in Mason
Hall, find the History of Religion
by study with historians in Haven

Hall, and do not be afraid to
take Psychology of Religion and
Sociology of Religion of those
moderns in Haven and Science

Place To Play,
Discuss Ideas
Performs Cultural.,
Religious Functions
Bnai B'rith Hillel Foundation
will continue to perform social,
cultural and religious functions
for Jewish students and also pro-
vide them with a place to study
learn and exchange ideas.
Last year Hillel celebrated its
twenty first birthday by having a
spring fomal. Other activities of
the year consisted of the United
Jewish Appeal fund raising cam-
paign, which netted $9,000 among
students, or $1,500 over the quota.
"Volpone" was shown under the
joint sponsorship of Art Cinema
League and Hillel. Hillelzapoppin
and the Spring Carnival were also
included in the social season.
Hiilel moved in June to its new
location, 2101 Hill Street when its
old home at Hill and Haven was
doomed by the expansion of the
campus. The new home is larger
than the old Foundation, and the
two and one-half acres of grounds
with the house will enable Hillel
to organize outdoor programs.
Rabbi Herschel Lymon is now in
his third year as director of the
Foundation. Rabbi Lymon served
in the Pacific Theatre during the
War as an Army chaplain. Mrs.
LilliansGoldenberg is program di-
rector. Student officers for the
fall are Howard Freeman, presi-
dent, Michael Sherman and Doris
Seder, vice presidents, and Helen
Siskin, secretary.
The program for orientation
week will feature "open house"
afternoons and evenings Sept.
17-19, with refreshments and
dancing. On the evening of Sep-
tember 19, the Intercollegiate
Zionist Federation of America will
conduct an open house.
For the fall, Hillel has planned
a broad program with outstand-
ing lectures and an active social
Rabbi Lymon will hold seminars
on the "Analysis of Contempo-
rary Jewish Problems." In addi-
tion, there will be beginners' and
advanced classes in Hebrew.
Weekly Sabbath services will be
held at 7:45 p.m. Friday, to be fol-
lowed by fireside discussions. High
Holy Day Services will be held at
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. Rab-
bi Lymon will be assisted by stu-
dent cantors. Rosh Hashonah
services will be held 8-10 p.m. Oct.
3, and 10-12 a.m. Oct. 4. Yom Kip-
pur services will be 8-10 p.m. Oct.
12, and 10 a.m. until sundown on
Oct. 13.

Far larger than the campus

80,000 people attended a total of
550 University lectures in every
corner of the state, from Detroit to
the furthest reaches of the Upper
Peninsula. To maintain this pro-

from their regular classes on
campus to travel to 157 Michigan

represents some duplication, the
Extension service can still claim
to be the octopus-like big brother

The Service offers 423 credit
and non-credit courses in all parts
of the state, including correspon-
dence courses. In addition, It pro-
vides correspondenceacourses to
residents of all 48 states and to
GIs' all over the world.
In all, virtually every commu-
nity and county is represented in
the Extension Service programs,
according to Everett J. Soop, as-
sociate director of the service.
All courses are taught by mem-
bers of the regular University fac-

students have weekly conferencesf

Emphasis is placed on careful,

give the student an opportunityt
to analyze and discuss the read-t

questions raised by the readings.
