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
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.

JVeio Tomahawk Chapter
Soon May Function
- A national activities honorary for independents wi
soon take root on the campus.
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
Earlier this year Hansen and
Pete Christensen, activities direc
tor of RAM, attended the national
Tomahawk convention to learn
how other chapters function.
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
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

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.

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

Aeschbachew sees no reason to
expect friction between construc

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
