Friday, June 23, 1950
Sunday morning, 24 University
YM and YW members returned
from a weeks stay in Estes Park
where they attended the annual
conference for the Rocky Moun
tain District. Two hundred fifty
delegates attended from Kansas,
Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming,
Utah, New Mexico and Missouri.
Kansas headed the list with 92
members attending. ,
Huston Smith from Washington
University in St. Louis, was the
principal speaker and the theme
"What is More Powerful Than
the Atom," was stressed through
out the conference. This theme is
a quotation from a poem enti
tled "The bomb That Fell On
America," by Hagedorn. In the
main address Smith compared the
human soul to the atom saying
that we had exposed the atom by
breaking the shell around it; now
we should learn to break through
the shell that is around the human
soul arid release the substance
that is confined there.
Discussion Groups
Many discussion groups were
held and counseling facilities
were made available to all stu
dents. Some of the discussion
group leaders from NU were:
Miriam Willey and Rev. John
Lepke, Congregational student
pastor on "Personal Freedom and
Social Good;" Virgil Ganzel and
Ruth Shinn on "Campus Affairs."
Mary Sidner had charge of the
Worship Planning committee. Sue
Allen was chairman of a commit
tee on Effective Citizenship
which also sponsored a daily
camp radio broadcast with Ruth
Sorenson and Charlene Colbert
making the commercials, which
were of the "Hadacol" variety.
An honor was bestowed on the
NU delegation when Sue Allen
was elected as the Director of the
Rocky Mountain District to attend
the National Institute for Chris
tian Counsel; meeting in Indiana
in August. She will also attend
the United Christian Counsel as
a representative of the local Y
The last two days of the con
ference emphasis was shifted to a
discussion of the issues to be
brought before the National
Assembly of student Y members
held each year at Miami Uni
versity in Oxford, Ohio. Anyone
who is a member of the Y is in
vited to attend and the policy of
student groups is planned for the
coming year.
Most Successful
This conference was one of the
most successful ones ever held
according to Ruth Shinn, Direc
tor of the University YWCA. It
was the first time m years
the weather co-operated to the
fullest extent, fair skies reign
ing every day of the meeting.
Every kind of recreational facility
was available for those who had
extra time and hikes in the
mountains were the favorite
pastime. The atmosphere of the
mountains gave a worshipful sur
rounding for the morning and
evening worship service.
Baby on Back
Interesting sight around camp
was Mrs. Lind, a marriage coun
selor, who carried her baby on
her back held there by a strip of
cloth bound so the baby was free
to move around. This is the
method used by the natives of
Okinawa; sociologists say this
gives the baby a feeling of secur
ity that few babies have today.
