To know the Bible, the record of the acts of God, is one requirement of men
preparing for the Christian ministry. To have an orderly understanding of
Christian beliefs, is another. The seminarians carefully examine the doctrine
of God, the work of His creation, as Well as the doctrines of providence and
reconciliation. As micldlers, the seminarians make detailed exegetical stud-
ies of the various Biblical books ancl as seniors, they may choose to do re-
search of their own.

To know how Christian beliefs have affected the lives of Gocl's people in the
Church is the purpose of seminary students taking courses in the Department
of Church l-listory, which includes a detailed examination of Christianity
from its beginning to the present. To present the message of Christ to chil-
dren, youth, and adults requires the learning of the techniques of teaching
as shown in the Department of Christian Education. Discussion, story-telling,
clramatization, and visual aids are various techniques that are considered.

and reasons for organizing it. Thcy are: fll To
bring young people into the Republican party and
to provide an opportunity for them to find political

Republican party and to promote its ideals. f4J To
collect, analyze, discuss and disseminate informa-
tion concerning political affairs.
During the past year the Club sponsored the ap-
pearance on campus of various outstanding political
dignitaries, including Governor Leo A. l-loegh, and
Congressman Henry O. Talle. The Club took an
active part in local political activities during the re-
cent Presidential election. Various outstanding
people of the community have spoken to the group
at its monthly meetings. Republican party leaders
in the Dubuque and northeast lowa area have also
met with the group. The highlight of the entire
year, however, was the appearance of Governor
Hoegh at dinner with the student body in Peters

to the Cornell basketball games as well as sending

The Panhellenic Council was organized to work to-

fine intellectual accomplishment and sound scholar-
ship, to compile rules governing rushing, pledging
and initiation on this campus, and to cooperate with
the college administration in the maintenance of
high social standards.
Panhellenic started the year with a pajama party
for the women in Severance to acquaint them with
the sororities, then published a booklet acquainting
all the women with Panhellenic, its advisors, the in-
dividual sororities and their purposes.
During spring rushing, they set up the rules for rush-
ing, pledging and initiation. They were sent out
to each rushee and sorority members. The group
also was co-sponsor of the lnter-Fraternity dance
which was held the weekend following initiation.
Representatives of the four fraternities meet to dis-
cuss fraternity problems ancl to coordinate and reg-
ulate all fraternity functions. This group organizes
the inter-fraternity athletics, and with the Panhel-

This year's Homecoming parade had
as its central theme 'ilVlusic Mania,"
with the organiaztions to design their
Hoats and decorations in some sort of
depiction of this. The result was a va-
riety of extremely colorful floats,
showing much hard work, and a more
polished parade than has been the case
in the recent past. With nearly twenty
campus organizations making floats
and several high school bands, it was a
parade befitting the best of schools.

The University gridmen began practice under the hot
September sun without the benefit of any opening day
optimism. With only thirty-five men reporting, and fac-
ing a schedule of exceptionally rugged potential, there
was little to look forward to.
The first hurdle was l..uther's powerhouse eleven, un-
beaten since 1953 with the Spartans as definite under-
dogs, but the UDee eleven 'ljelledf' and drove Luther
to a 7-7 tie to stun the state. Trailing 7-0 early in the
fourth quarter, the Spartans drove 67 yards to the Norse-
men's three yard line, with Tom Merritt carrying around
end for the score. Pillard's conversion gave Dubuque the
stunning 7-7 deadlock.

three wins, three losses, and two ties, and fifth
