Religion has a definitely beneficial role in education, said Robb. "It gives a frame of reference, depth, and a perpendicular aspect to learning. "There seems to be a tendency to write off the medieval period as the dark ages and let it go at that. But that's too much of an oversimplification. It's questionable whether or not the scientific method would have evolved so soon without a monotheistic understanding of the universe," he said. I "It took the concept of an orderly world to lay the foundation tor the method. And just I a.s religion gave a sense of direc-| tion toward ultimate meaning i then, it does the same now." Robb criticized the classroom ! emphasis on denotative teaching, j Too much of the learning pro-I cess comes from dull description. There should be more use of myth and symbol to help put ideas across. Religious faith helps in this aspect to get a broader perspective, Robb said.

At a meeting Friday, the AMS Cabinet requested Its member organizations to discuss the question of cheating and report back in two to four weeks. "The Cabinet did not feel that it was in the proper position to make suggestions or formulate plans to prevent cheating," said AMS President Bob Gerst. Problems Discussed The discussion of the problems of Integrity was proceeded by a series of events, dating from the Feh. 6 ouster of two men who were caught while attempting to steal final examinations. Last week Dean of Students Bernard L. Hvink commended the student body for its "initiative and interest in attempting to improve the academic environment.” Dean H.vink's comments were ln response to a series of activities dealing with the cheating problem. On Feb. 13, MorW Board published an open letter to the administration commending them for action against students ousted for cheating. AWS Meeting Held The Associated Women Students Cabinet held an open meeting last week in an attempt to seek a positive study of integrity. Amazons, upper division women's honorary, published an open letter to the faculty suggesting ways to avoid future repetitions of cheating. Dean Hyink invited student groups, who have suggestions on alleviating cheating, to present their recommendations to the joint faeulty-student Investigating committee. Problem Considered Gerst explained that the Cabinet considered the problem because the AMS Constitution states that the purpose of the group is lo discuss problems that pertain to the campus and the male students. Final Report The Cabinet members felt that each group should discuss the problem on its own initiative and receive suggestions of their members. When the reports are presented, Ihe Cabinet members will assimilate them into a final report to Ihe investigating committee and Ihe student body. Two amendments to the AMS Constitution were unanimously approved by the Cabinet. The amendments provide for Ihe inclusion of the Men's Judicial Council in Ihe AMS Constitution and Ihe creation of associated cabinet positions.

"Approximately 600 of the 900 graduating seniors have faced Ihe photographers lens during the past six weeks,” according to Jack Towers, department head. Seniors who have not yet lieen photographed are reminded that the deadline is drawing near and lhal they may make appointments for sittings anytime during tiut w«ek. Dr. Russell Kirk, famous author and scholar, will illustrate the true relationship between academic freedom and the conservative principle when he speaks on The Collegian and Conservatism" today at 3 p.m. in Founders Hall 129. Dr. Kirk’s lecture is the first in a series sponsored by the Forum Commit toe. Future lectures tentatively include such internationally reknowned figures as Margaret Meade, anthropologist: Ralph Bunche, American Negro winner of Ihe Nobel Peace Prize; and William L. Shirer, noted author and foreign correspondent. To Illustrate "Academic freedom is a natural right that carries with it certain duties, inside and outside Ihe university," says Dr. Kirk. "I will try to Illustrate these duties and answer the question of how two intellectual powers moi al worth and duty—can be joined." In answering this question, Dr. Kirk will use a comparison the beliefs of two educational critics. Robert M. Hutchins, president of the Fund for Ihe Republic, and T. S. Eliot, famous English poet. According to Dr. Kirk, Hutchins feels Ihe function of a university is lo train the Intellect of the student with no responsibility for his ethical principles. Eliot, he says, does not distinguish the qualities of moral worth from intellectual power. Eliot feels the teacher has the right lo expect ethical quality as well as sheer intellectualism. Recognized Authority Dr. Kirk is recognized as the US's outstanding authority on the political philosophy of conservatism "Conservatism is th# belief thal we weren't horn yesterday, lhat certain enduring moral and social principles must he respected in every age or else we must pay a penalty of social degradation," he says. The greatest examples of this oonseivativ* belief, b« says, <ue the politicians of America, "who use not a vocabulary of conservatism but of new-fangled liberalism." Governor Frank Lausche of Ohio and Sen. William Knowland of California are good examples of this political conseer-vatism, according lo Dr. Kirk. Referring to Ihe extreme conservatives of America, the noted doctor says they are nol really conservatives but Manchesterians, who are advocates of England’s Manchester School of Economists. Schools of Thought The Manchester School feels lhat man’s and society’s problems are economic, and lhal “we can have enlightened intellects only if all men are free with no rectrictions placed upon them,” he says. Dr. Kirk’s conservative philosophy is explained in his latest book, "A Program for Conservatives." His most famous book, "The Conservative Mind," which has undergone four American and several foreign printings, deals with Ihe history of thought. “Academic Freedom” is another of his famous works. "Beyond Ihe Dreams of Avarice” and “The American Conservative Character" will he published this year by Ihe doctor. Official Nol icc Dr. Lindquist Denys Manners, Learning As Faith Substitutes The podium of Bovard auditorium was turned into a pulpit yesterday when a Presbyterian minister declared that money, manners, learning, or personal magnetism will not substitute for religion. "The stars of God will shine for you only lf you embrace love and companionship," lhe Rev. Dr. Raymond I. Lindquist, pastor of Ihe First Pres-bj terian Church of Hollywood, told his audience. "Put character above circumstances. Once you grasp lhat thought, nothing will terrify you. Cause Above Conflict "Put your cause above the conflict. By doing this, you will find someone greater than you, "Make companionship with,all something that's true and good and beautiful. You will be able to go forward with others," he said. Dr. Lindquist, who logged over 100,000 air miles last year preaching and praying with people all over the country, spoke al the convocation of Religious Emphasis Week on "Religion and You.” Talk Headline* RK.W His talk headlined 25 other events to be celebrated this week at Troy In honor of the Protestant, Jewish, Catholic, and other recognized faiths of the world. The Hollywood minister, sometimes speaking gently but at other times with evangelistic fervor, said that by embracing God, we will "manage the terrors of life.” "I once met a young man who was about to be operated on. He was very nervous and panicky. While he was being wheeled to the operating room, he saw a young woman who also seemed nervous and taut. They asked each other why they were scared. "The young man said it was because it was his first operation. The young woman was terrified because it was her husband's — the surgeon’s — first operation, ’ Dr. Lindquist jokingly told his listeners. Money No ubstltute Turning to the serious side, Dr. Lindquist continued with his objections to money as a substitute for the bible. "Money might keep gas in Ihe car, clothes on our backs, but it won’t make you any happier. By the end of the day, Park Avenue folk are just as weary as Sixth Avenue folk." He noted that others try to substitute manners for God, Lord Chesterfield, he said, thought that manners would be DR. RAYMOND I. LINDQUIST . . . opens REW the key to happiness. “But that man was haunted with fear, and died of heartache and devastating emptiness,” he said. Nothing will take the place of religion. It's not enough to know —something else must be in the heart," he said. The Hollywood preacher said, “Just look at all the Ph.D's behind prison bars.” "There is no substitute for religion. You will only discover God when you have the mercy of God in your heart,” he concluded. GAGE FILM Blue Key Dinner Speaker Chosen Blue Key will hold a meeting tonight at 5:15 p.m., at the Alpha Tau Omega house, 725 West 281 b Street. The guest speaker will he Dr. Lee Scott, ASSC president In 1944-45, and a graduate of the SC School of Religion, Dr. Scott is a Methodist minister in Campton and teaches church history at SC. Dues of $2.50 are payable at the meeting," according to Ron Hughes, treasurer. Abe Lincoln Returns to White House President Eisenhower, in a letter to U.S. Sen. Thomas H. Kuchel (R) of California, thanked him yesterday for sending to the White House a print of Prof. Merrell Gage’s film, "The Face of Lincoln,” produced by the department of cinema. President Kisenhower's letter to Senator Kuchel, dated Feb. 14 from the White House, follows: "Thank you for sending me the film entitled, The Face of Lincoln,’ produced by the Department of Cinema of the University of Southern California. I am delighted to have it, and I hope you will be good enough to convey to Mr, McMurray, Mr. Hall, and the others who worked on the project, my deep appreciation of their kindness ln seeing that a print was sent to me. "Mrs. Eisenhower and I look forward to seeing the film at an early date. "With warm regard, Sincerely, Dwight D. Eisenhower.” CHICAGO Students attending the university under Public Law 550 (Korean GI Bill) may pick up Attendance Forms for the month of February starting today.

"I would be interested in seeing how a convention works at first hand.” Well known around campus for his outspoken Democratic views, Dr. Caldwell will be competing with 11 other people from the district council. Two of his top competitors are State Assemblyman Jesse M. Unruh and Jack Ansley, chairman of the 65th Assembly Dis Intel Council.
