T9 i s io College Assembly Audience Dr. Fred E, 'Luchs of Athens, Ohio. Outlines Educational • * Benefits in Address Here, Last Wednesday Evening "What shotfld College,do fpr Us in the Way ,of Religion?" was the topic of the speech delivered by Dr.- Fred E. liucns, pastor of the First Presbyterian' church of Athens, Ohio, at the .required assembly Wednesday, April 18.- - Using the illustration of the pussy cat-who went to London to see the queen but spent his entire time under tkiG chair seeing nothing of; the great, city: Dr. Luchs compared Joe; College with that cat in respect to students who go to college but mereiy chase mice under chairs. Dr. .Luchs stressed- five* ways in which students benefit from college. He.first stated that college teaches them to think in the matter of religion. People expect a'great deal from college graduates. They expect thein to be able to think mat*- ters thrdugh.. "There are two main classes of thinkers in religion; those who are too lazy Jo think and believe that tradition ,.?tias already settled religion for all times, and those pagans who know very little about religion but speak as. authorities.. Dr. XiUchs further stated that there are many things in religion which are not thought throiigh, and "All conclusions in religion have hot been reached." We should learn in'college to rub minds- with the faculty and other students, exchange views and. know the faculty as people. A greater per cent Of the faculty are more religious' than any other profession. "College teaches you the background of history and social movements." The church has many times supported movements which they later discovered were unchristian., , College should teach yon what movements you should support in, the church and in the community." He continued by saying that college teaches students to realize that religion should begin exactly where you are. Religion begins at home by using the • tools' rat' hand. They should start being religious now and not when, they think they may have hiore tame for it later in life. ' College teaches some beliefs and satisfaction of minds. One should always have a philosophy and should have traditions only if they are strong enough to continue through the years. People very seldom have the same phil- i See—Dr. Luchs—Page 4 Seniors Alumni Placed in State The placement office announces several teaching positions accepted by senior and alumni throughout the state.
