'U' of Minnesota Aroused'
Over Religious Question

The question of separation of
Church and state in education has
come up at the University of Min-
nesota, where the Board of Re-
gents is preparing to fight a court
order prohibiting the university
from aiding religious groups.
The university's religious pro-
gram came under attack earlier
this year by Frank Hughes, Min-
nesota's "militant atheist," but it
did not reach the courts.

court order, claims that he is not
against religion, but feels that the
university is acting illegally by
furthering denomination. He as-
serts that when Hughes approch-
ed him earlier, asking him to ac-
cept the case, he refused because
Hughes is "anti-religious.''
The lawyer objects to the uni-
versity's policy of issuing reli-
gious census cards, providing a
coordinator of religious activi-
ties and allowing religious
groups to use university facili-
"It is a fact," he said, "that a

on the University of Minnesota
campus which disbelieves in the
established Constitutional prin-
ciple of separation of church and

STUDENTS AT the University
of Texas are thinking seriously
about the problem of cheating
after their Student Committee on
Scholastic Integrity called the sit-
uation "disgraceful."
The student committee was
appointed last September af-
ter the American Veterans
Committee, in a survey of cam-
pus cheating, drew confessions
of scholastic dishonesty from 53
per cent of the interviewees.
The committee found that the
causes of cheating are not super-
ficial, and "run throughout the
weave of the fabric of the com-
munity's moral attitudes."
"In recent years," the report
stated, "there has been a general
relaxing of the social pressure
against cheating. Students and
faculty alike have come to regard
scholastic dishonesty as little
more than a breach of proper et-

the University Museum of Art,
will go on display today, and will
continue through Sunday, July 15.
Circulated by the American
Federation of Arts, the prints
range from the fifteenth century
to the present. The prints were
selected by Elizabeth Mongan,
Curator of Prints, National Gal-

Principal exhibit of the three,
"Painters of the Northwest,"
was arranged by the Seattle Art
Museum and is being circulated
in Michigan by the Detroit In-
stitute of Arts. This group, ac-
companied by "Water Colors
and Collages by Maholy-Nagy,"
will also open today and will be
on display until July 22.
"Painters of the Northwest" in-
cludes the works of six artists,
each represented by five works.
The painters include Morris
Graves, Margaret Tomkins, Ken-
neth Callahan, James Fitsgerald,
Mark Tobey and Guy Anderson.
A regional art form which is
typically Northwestern, but also
universal in its concern with
the forces of nature, is given by
the combination of features of
the Pacific region with Oriental
mysticism, Aboriginal Indian art
and the modern sense of aero-
dynamics and nuclear physics.
Circulated by the Circle Gallery,
of Detroit, about 25 water colors
and collages of Maholy-Nagy will
comprise the third exhibit.
Born in Hungary, the versatile
artist was at various times an in-
dustrial designer, photographer,
painter, author and teacher.

important piece of mail any fellow
gets from his Draft Board is not
the famous "Greeting" but the
simple little post card called Notice
of Classification, Form No. 110.
If you think you rate a defer-
ment but that card comes through
saying you're 1-A, it's the signal
to start an appeal. Wait too long
and you'll be out of luck.
YOU MAY ask to appear before
the Board or you may appeal di-
rectly to your State Appeal Board.
But don't waste time. In both
cases, you must act within 10 days
after your classification card is
malied--not 10 days after you re-
ceive it.
If you want to argue your
case in person before the Board,
merely write a letter within the
Mao Praised
By Pro-Soviet
speech by a top Chinese Com-
munist yesterday made a seem-
ingly unnecessary defense of Mao
Tze-Tung's Communist orthodoxy
according to the Russian model.
The implication was that pos-
sibly Mao's leadership has been
under secret attack.
* * *
THE SPEAKER was Liu Shao-
Chi, long tabbed as the most ar-
dent pro-Moscow member of the
Chinese Reds' ruling clique and a
possible rival to the more moder-
ate Mao.
His long speech at a Peiping
rally commemorating the 30th
anniversary of the party in
China was broadcast by the
Peiping Radio. It was heard in
San Francisco by the Associated
Liu went out of his way at ex-
treme length to praise Mao as a
"correct" leader, a master of
"Marxism-Leninism" and the man
who "built our Party, in ideology
and organization, after the ex-
ample of the Bolshevik Party of
the Soviet Union."
This theme of praise for Mao
as the apostle of Soviet-type Com-
munism has been harped upon
constantly by the Red Radio for
the past week. Liu's speech goes
the farthest yet.

10-day appeal period stating you
want to appear.
The Board will set a date when
you can talk it over with the
members. You may be accom-
panied by a lawyer, your wife,
parents or any one else, only if
the Board allows it.
AFTER YOUR appearance, the
Board will mail you another
Notice of Classification. If it still
says you're 1-A, you may not ask
for a second appearance but you
may appeal.
Here again you must act with-
in 10 days after the card is
mailed by writing a letter to the
Board stating you wish to ap-
peal. The Board will stick the
letter in your file and ship the
whole fight off to The State
Appeal Board.
Up to now each state has had
just one Appeal Board but the new
UMTSLaw requires that a State
Board now be set up in each Fed-
eral Judicial District, and some
states have more than one such
The procedure is the same, how-
ever. The Appeal Board will make
a decision based on what's in your
file and mail you still another
Notice of Classification. If it de-
cides you're 1-A by a unanimous
vote, all you can do is request the
State or National Selective Serv-
ice Director to appeal the case
BUT IF EVEN one member of
the State Appeal Board votes in
your favor then you yourself may
appeal to the Presidential Appeal
Board in Washington. You do this
by writing your own Board again
within 10 days, stating you want
to appeal to the Presidential

notify your Board of any change
in status, however slight, that
might possibly change your classi-
fication. This is particularly lm.,
portant for those likely to be re-
classified soon, as 3-A's with only
one dependent and 4-F's who
flunked the mental exam.
If you've acquired more de-
pendents since you were first
classified, send your Board proof,
as certified copies of your mar-
riage certificate or your child's
birth certificate. Unborn chil-
dren are considered dependents
by Selective Service, so if your
wife is pregnant get a statement
to that effect from your family
If you're in a job you think es-
sential, whether farm, factory or
office work, have your boss write
the Board a letter telling the na-
ture of your work. If you can be
replaced easily,'you do not rate an
occupational deferment.

IT'S TOO LATE to apply for the
college student exam but if you
want to continue a college course
your school should get a letter off
to your Board before Aug. 20 tell-
ing what your class standing is:
Once you're finally classified
1-A, your Board may order you
for physical and mental exams
at any time. Deferred men may
be ordered for exams before
they're 1-A if their deferments
are likely to come to an end
If Army doctors find you fit for
service, your Board will mail you
a notice of acceptability. You may
not be inducted within 21 days
after the notice is mailed and your
Board must mail your order to re-
port for induction at least 10 days'
before your induction date.
