Photo by TAT Take Part in World, Raines Stresses Bishop Richard C. Raines yesterday called for American churches to re-examine the New Testament dimensions and mission of the church and for American students to "discover the world as it is and to take part in it." "I'm worried, I'm frightened because so few times does the leadership of the church speak out on great issues, seemingly frightened lest the institution should suffer . . . ," Raines declared. "I call you to break out of this ghetto of intellectual luxury and to discover the world as it is and to take part in that world," Raines said to the students. Raines, discussing "Democracy in a Struggling World," urged students to "take more seriously the opportunity that you have to study" and "to discipline your minds ..." In choosing an occupation, Raines asserted that students should draw a line making a graph of* their capabilities and a line IN ZBT MOCK ELECTION Campus To Vote Tomorrow East Union, Hanes, Alumni Lounge Sei As Poll Centers for University Voting Students, faculty and Administration members will have a chance to designate their favorite Presidential candidate tomorrow in a campus-wide election sponsored by Zeta Beta Tau fraternity. Graduate students were not included in the original election plans, Todd Lappin, ZBT president said, but many graduate students had called him to ask that they be included in the election. Registration lists have been made of all students, Lappin said, and in order to vote the student must be able to give his correct post office box number or his home address. Voting for all undergraduate*- men, graduate students and faculty and Administration members will take place in the Alumni Lounge in the Union building, Jan Mirsky, chairman of the ZBT election committee stated. East Union is the polling place for all undergraduate women, East faculty members may vote either in the Union Building or in Carr Building, Mirsky stated. Nursing students will vote in the Hanes House lobby. All polling places will be open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Results of the election will be announced sometime Tuesday evening, Mirsky said, and ballots will be counted to show the results of the vote by region, by state and by sex. A comparison of candidate preference of graduate and undergraduate students will be made, and a comparison of the voting of students and the faculty will be tabulated. All students are urged to get out and vote, Mirsky stated, so that a clear picture of the students' Presidential preference can be obtained. Though many polls have been conducted this year, this is the first complete election for all members of the University community, Lappin added. denoting the world's needs. Where the two cross, the student should say "that's where I'm needed and that's where I'll go," Raines stressed. He suggested four areas for Students to consider in deciding their life's work: teaching, journalism, public service and the ministry. Raines labeled the ministry the most important of the four. "If you don't have leaders and thinkers of character and courage in the pulpit, then the teachers are not apt to communicate character, the journalists will write from the wrong viewpoint, and the public servants are not incorruptible," he stated. Raines underscored the need for commitment to Christ. Commitment, according to Raines, brings a change in kind, new powers and new characteristics. In discussing the role and dimensions of the church, Raines said the church "has got to begin once again to be the church." Many American churches have become "lovely private religious clubs based upon congeniality and convenience and held together by human gregariousness and social desirability," he charged. I They tend to melt into "the environment where they are until they take on the color of that world, not challenging that world in any significant way," Raines maintained. "Many activities of the average church are utterly irrelevant to the purpose of the kingdom," he added. MSGA Slates Debate on Issues For Tonight In Union Ballroom A "Debate on the Issues," sponsored by the Men's Student Government's committee on national-international affairs, will take place at 8 tonight in the Union Ballroom. Two third-year law students Don Dietrich and Phil Hubbart, will speak 20 minutes each for the Republican and Democratic parties, respectively, according to Larry Hess, chairman of the committee. The first speaker will talk for 15 minutes and the second for 20 minutes, with the first speaker permitted a five-minute rebuttal. This formula for the debate was selected by the committee Oak Ridge To Keep Gross as President The Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies has re-elected Dr. Paul M. Gross president for a one-year term. Gross, a William Howell Pegram professor of chemistry, was also re-elected to the Institute's Board of Directors. Gross has served continuously since June, 1949, as president of the Institute. He is currently one of two nominees for the presidency of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. to give both speakers equal time and a chance for rebuttal. The debators will try and arrive at a "clear definition and explanation of the party issues," stated committee chairman Hess. Dietrich, speaker for the Nixon-Lodge ticket, is a 1958 graduate of the University of Buffalo. He is a winner of the University's National Law Scholarship, first associate editor of the DtiJce Law Journal and co-editor of the Student Bar Association newspaper. He is also a member of the Judicial Board Honor Code Revision Committee. Hubbart, debater for the Kennedy-Johnson ticket, is a graduate of Augustana College, where he was a Phi Beta Kappa. He is managing editor of the Duke Law Journal and a member of the Journal's editorial board. Hubbart was national debating champion in 1958 in the intramural debate between all colleges in the nation. The main purpose of the informal debate is to inform the students about the campaign issues, stated Hess. He hoped that the debate would be more informative than argumentative and he said that the debate will not be technical but informal. Dickens To Assume Administrative Post The Administration has named Robert L. Dickens, an associate professor of accounting, assistant to the dean of the University. Dickens, a University faculty member since 1949, will assist Dr. Marcus E. Hobbs in the performance of administrative duties. His appointment to the newly created post is in addition to his regular teaching duties. Dickens earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees at the University of North Carolina. He also is a Certified Public Accountant and currently is serving as president of the Triangle Area Chapter of the North Carolina Association of CPAs which includes Durham, Wake, Orange and Vance Counties. Dickens is a native of Wake County. AND HE SLEEPS Prof Lets Mutt Lie Turnabout is apparently fair play between humans and dogs, or so one canine would have us believe. When a dog wandered into the room last Thursday, Dr. Louis Budd explained to his English class that education courses teach an instructor to leave dogs alone. The reason for this, Budd said, is that "if you try to throw him out, and fail, you look like a fool. If you succeed, everybody boos." Left alone, this dog lay down and slept through the lecture. Independents Elect Representatives In FF Arch Tomorrow The Independent Dormitory Council election for floor representatives is scheduled for tomorrow in the FF arch from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., IDC president Charles Waters said Sunday. , Petitions from candidates for the 16 floor representative positions have been turned in and all but three halls will have candidates running in the election, Waters stated. On approximately half the halls there will be two or more candidates running for each position, he added: Any student living in the independent dorms may vote in the election, Waters stated. This is the second IDC election scheduled this year. The first election failed because of a lack of interest in IDC. At a forum meeting of independents last Tuesday, an overwhelming majority of the students present voted for a new election, showing the interest and support needed to continue the IDC, Waters said. Students at the forum also felt that it would be better for them to form their own government rather than hand the problem over to MSGA or the Administration, he noted.
