The religious atmosphere
at the University is belter
than at many schools of sim
ilar size, according to the
opinions of two campus reli
gious leaders.
The Rev. Keith Stevensen.
pastor of the Baptist Student
fellowship, and the Rev. Rex
Knowles, pastor of Presby
House, agreed upon this point
when ( questioned about re
ligious attitudes of college
Become Concerned
The Rev. Knowles said stu
dent groups seem to becom
ing more concerned about the
religious problems of this age
rather than less so as theo
logians often have claimed.
He also pointed out that he
had noticed a progressive in
crease in student participa
tion in church activities and
church services during the 12
year period he has been at
the University.
More than 95 per, cent of
the students indicated a
church membership on their
Information cards. According
to the Rev. Knowles, this is
a much higher percentage
than most schools.
He estimated . approxi
mately 40 per cent of the stu
dents attend church services

Discuss Attitudes
and 10 per cent are consistent
workers in church groups and
Y groups.
Both pastors agreed the ac
ceptance of religious belief
and practices often becomes a
problem to the college stu
dent. The Rev. Knowles re
marked that a falling away
from the present orthodoxes
of religion are expected. It is
a part of the psychological
development of the individual
to question the concrete con
cepts of religion which he
learned as a child.
This questioning indicates
a move toward discovering
himself. However, the Rev.
Knowles pointed out the ma
jority of students find, main
tain or restablish their re
ligious concepts by the time
they approach graduation.
The Rev. Stevensen attrib
uted the college student's at
titude to religion as also hav
ing other bases besides re
ligious psychological adjust
ment. He cited one as inade
quacy in pre-college training.
The second reaction is against
social background and family,

reaction of this age group, he

The health councils were
founded shortly before the flu
epedemic of 1957 and proved
their effectiveness in helping
to control the "flu bug."
Dr. Fuenning explained
there are four health councils
the IFC, Panhellenic. Co-op
Council and the Selleck-Burr
Hall Council. Members of the
councils are elected within the
fraternity, Co-op or sorority
house. Counselors from Sei
leck and Burr serve as mem
bers of the fourth council.
The councils meet once a
month to discuss health pro
grams and problems. Mem
bers may arrange for discus
sions for their houses on a
current health problem or
Dr. Fuenning said he felt
the council has served to ad
vance the program of pre
ventive medicine among the
students of this campus.

Good Here
of NU Students
the youth of this generation
tend to avoid definite commit
ments to anything abstract in
nature such as religion. They
attributed this to the growing
insecurity of the world caused
by scientific developments
and unstable world situations.
The Rev. Stevensen said he
felt the increase in church
attendance throughout the na
tions is not an indication of
a return to religion in faith.
He said he thought the church
had lost some of its strength
because it had sought social
acceptance by all, thereby
losing much of its individuali
ty. It has become paralleled
with our society rather than
maintaining its original posi
tion of an institution greater
than the common man, he
The Rev. Stevensen con
tends the church and religion
must change to recover their
original birthright, the con
viction that the world and
life are measured by Jesus
Christ. Religion must restate
its original conviction in
terms of this age in order to
recover its rightful place in
our lives, he said.
Social Institution
In contrast, the Rev.
Knowles commented that he
considered the church to be
one of the strong social in
stitutions of our land and par
ticularly of the University
and Lincoln. He said he con
sidered it to be more of a
challenge to be a Christian in

of our present mode of life
will eventually lead man to
the realization that the hu
manist answer to worldly sit
uations is not sufficient. Peo

realize the importance of re
ligion in their lives.
Both pastors agreed that
the popular conception that
philosophy weakens religion
was false. It merely asks
many questions which often

It's Up to the Student:
'Only Way To Study
Is To Study Hard!'
By Jim Forrest
Dr. James E. Miller, head
of the English department,
said that the only way for a
student to study is to study
"Tim Qfiir1 tatm f.iiiA nf

"y - r
student. What is good for one
student isn't always good for
the rest."
However, Dr. Miller did
say that it is extremely im
portant for the student to
schedule his time. He suggest
ed that students regulate their
study time on a daily and
weekly basis.
Four Points
The Counseling Service
through their study skills pro
gram promote a four-point
criteria for studying:
1. Proper use of time
2. Scientific method of text
book reading
3. Technique of taking class
4. Technique of taking
To aid in budgeting this
time, the Service advises each
student to write out a list of
study assignments that he has
to prepare.
The scientific m e t h o d of
text book reading includes
taking notes on what you
read, going back over the
material and reviewing.
The most important thing
in taking class notes, says the
Counseling Service, is not the
thoroughness of the notes but
that the student review his
notes within twenty-four
hours of class.
In the technique of taking
an examination everything
depends upon the first three
J. P. Colbert, dean of
Student Affairs, says that in

of learning is on the student.
