Bertram Contrasts Faith, Hope Theologian Speaks At REW Seminar JThe truth of a man's faith de pends on his ability to make fine theological distinction, Dr. Rob ert Bertram, chairman of the Val paraiso University philosophy de partment, stated Tuesday in a Re ligious Empha ? - sis Week semi nar. A man must be able to make distinc tions between wh&l is Chris tian faith and what is wish f u 1 thinking, between what is pleasing to Bertram God and what is merely pleasing to man, Ber tram told an audience of 22 stu dents and faculty members. "It takes strenuous adult effort to retain the faith of a child, even when everything within you cries out that the faith is wrong," Ber tram stressed. This is why some kind of theological training is nec essary and why the Christian church as always stresses educa tion, he added. Struggle in the world is inescap able, Bertram observed. It is a wonderful tiling for a Christian to know that he has a way to meet that struggle, that the issue of the struggle has already been estab lished. Bertram spoke at the second of four seminars planned for the Uni versity Religious Emphasis Week, now going on on both City and Ag campuses. Eight speakers repre senting eight faiths and fields of endeavor, presents the seminars.

Although a charter member of Tomahawk, the Uni versity has no local chapter now, said Lyle Hansen, one of the organizers of the local group. Tomahawk's birth on the cam pus was three years ago when Lowell Vestal, then vice president of RAM began corresponding with national headquarters of t h e or ganization, Hansen said. Largely through Vestal's efforts, a constitution was written for a local chapter of the honorary. The group was then chartered by the Student Council. Within two weeks, Hansen said a nucleus group will meet to name an adviser for a local chapter. This will be the first step in ac tual organization of a campus chapter. Earlier this year Hansen and Pete Christensen, activities direc tor of RAM, attended the national Tomahawk convention to learn how other chapters function. Nucleus At the suggestion of Frank Hall gren, associate dean of Student Affairs, Hansen and Christensen will choose the nucleus organiza tional group. According to Hansen, this group will be kept small enough to make sure that those chosen are people who have shown "very obviously" that they have done "outstanding work" on cam pus. The nucleus group will be equally divided between men and women and will consist mainly of upperclassmcn, Hansen said. About six or eight people will con stitute this organizational group. The University charter states that members of the honorary will be active during their sophomore, junior and senior years. At some schools having chapters, members become alumni in their senior year. Members will be taken into Tomahawk in their sophomore year once the organization has been founded, Christensen said. "We need upperclassmen for archeologist, took a more pessi mistic view on the effect of the interstate highway construction in relation to preservation of histori cal material. In this month's issue of the His torical Society newsletter Kivett stated that "here in Nebraska we shall be faced with a major sal vage project if we are to ade quately investigate our sites." Many states have been able to do nothing about the material destroyed by construction, he said. According to Aeshbachew, there is a provision in the Interstate Highway act dealing with archeo logical discoveries. stability now, however," Hansen said. Once the nucleus group has chosen an adviser, it will begin work on electing first-year mem bers. During this first year, ttie chapter will be kept fairly small, Hansen said. Most chapters have about 35 members. "Tomahawk will perform a serv ice lunction at tne university, Hansen said. On other campuses Tomahawk chapters usher at pro grams, conduct spirit campaigns or undertake other projects of a service nature. "One of the first jobs of the group will be to determine what service function the University chapter can perform," Christen sen said. One of the organization's major goals Is encouraging independents to participate in activities, Hansen said. Why "Tomahawk" The name, Tomahawk, originat ed at Indiana University. Indiana had an independent activities hon orary of that name. The Indiana group found that Illinois had a similar organization. These two local organizations exchanged ideas a nd eventually decided to form a joint group. Perdue University joined them in forming a national organization, Since then, Monmouth College, Iowa State College and Nebraska have joined the national organiza tion. Iowa University, Iowa State Teachers College and Drake Uni versity are now "interested" ta joining, Hansen said. Charity Polls Open Students may vote this week for charities for next year's AUF drive. The polls are located in the Union. Five charities will be chosen by the poll. Or Lose Aeschbachew sees no reason to expect friction between construc tion and archeology unless some large field Is discovered. In that case, the archeologist would want to stop there while the engineers would want to continue. The chances of such a large fine1 are slight. The archeologist can And something almost any where, bu something of extreme value Is seldom found. The last large finding in pre construction excavation was mad in 1950 when "considerable infor mation about the lives of tht indarns was discovered during th construction of the Swanson reseir voir near Trenton," Aeschbachew recalled.
