OFF PRESS All well-kno- To the Students of the University: An editorial and a comment on the Student Union Building Bpnearrd in the Tuesday issue of The Kernel. In these writings some strictures are made upon the administration and its procedure In regard to the Student Union Building. It is certainly desirable that no controversy be raised over the construction of this building, and that the plans for the building be as nearly satisfactory to all concerned as possible. It must be remembered, however, that the amount of money available for the construction of the building is not large. The sum of $200,000 will not build everything, and the $50,000 which has been set aside for the furnishings of the building cannot purchase luxury. The editor In commenting on the building seems to think that dancing is the main purpose and objective of the student body. He also says something about lounging space. The plans call for a lounging room 150 feet long by some 30 feet wide, and In addition to this there is a special lounging room for women. It should be remembered that a Student Union building is not a recreation building per se, but rather a building where the interests of students may be concentrated, where they may meet each other, where various organizations may have their offices, where students spend their time between classes, and on other occasions when they are on the campus. The architects have Just begun work upon the plans. Any students who have suggestions to make may hand them to the chairman of the student commit- tee, who will undoubtedly give them to the architects. Messrs. Frankel and Gillig have undertaken the preparation of the plans. When the plans are completed the student committee will be asked to go over them and to make further suggestions. It must be remembered that we cannot build the Waldorf-Astor- ia or the Michigan Union with the amount of money available We must do for the building. the best we cart with what we have; moreover, St must be kept in mind that interest and payments on the buildirir must be met every year for the next 25 years.

The reasons for coue&c ..i.i!.m" lack of interest in church-goin- g, the purpose of the church, and the questions which face students concerning a philosophy of life were discussed at the last of the March student forums, sponsored by the YWCA and YMCA, which was held on Tuesday, March 31, in Patterson hall. The forum was led by Dr. Robert Miles, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, on the topic 'Am I Right About My Way of Life?" Doctor Miles presented three aids in gaining a fuller and desirable way of life. These were to love and yourself, love your neighbor, these, he love God. Explaining is not stated that self-lobut desire ot increase one's capacities and make the best of ones possibilities. By loving one's neighbors was meant the realization of the value of others, and the worth of all peoples, no matter what their race or color. Discussing the love of Got!, Doctor Miles said that the "Individual should have an outreach beyond himself .a belief in the Power that motivates and guides him." Quoting from Sautuyunu, Doctor Miles stilted "Faith is the soul's invincible surmise," and discussed faith as the college student views it. Martha Christian acted as chairman of the forum, which concluded the series. Other forums were on questions of militarism, the negro, campus politics, and social relations, led by Dr. Esther Cole Roberts, Augusta Franklin, Mii Dr. Amry Vandenbotch, and Dr. M. M. White. Chairmen of the forum included ve Donald Rei&ter, Martha Fugett, Jimmy Stephens, Martha Christian, and Theo Nadelsteln.
