A Wiser Choice ...
Now that all-university church night has come and
gone, it is hoped that free comment can b5 injected for
future consideration without arousing the wrath of those
responsible individuals who so unwisely set aside a closed
activity night for the expressed purpose of allowing stu
dent religious organizations an option on the student's life.
From the psychological angle this writer feels that the
religious groups on the campus have a distorted conception
of the average student. Religion, like all other worldly
things in this atomic civilization cannot and should not be
literally shoved down the layman's throat, so it is suggested
that attempts at same be terminated.
Religion is a part of successful living and should be
presented as such. When a special night is set aside for
religious observance, religion itself suffers, as it too, is set
aside and cataloged as a foreign element in campus "life
, that cannot fuse with other activities. This we know is not
3 the express purpose of the all-university function, but
nevertheless it is the impression that has been stamped on
, many student minds.
i; Making religion an integral part of learning and ulti
v m&tely an integral part of life is the answer to success.
Consequently don't unwisely make religion an abstract
Tfluantity. -When there's a rally, allow religion to find it's
place in it; when there's convocation or learning to be done,
jjet religion become a brother in the effort. Let religion be
l tome a part of campus life, don't force it. It's place is there
j tad with proper usage it will take it's seat for the better
i itvent and benefit of all of us.

Quarter Million Spent
The building has been in use as
a library since 1945 when It was
reconverted from wartime use as
an ASTP barracks. The univer
sity has spent $250,000 furnish
ing and equipping the building
since its return from army use.
Only a few minor areas remain to
be decorated and equipped.
Completed in 1943 when the
army moved in, the library was
erected with the gift of $850,000
from the estate of Don L. Love,
for many years a prominent Lin
