Dr. Gottschall
on Brotherhood
Dr. Andrew W. Gottschall, director
of the Southern Region of the Na
tional Conference of Christians
spoke in Assembly Thursday on
the observance of Brotherhood Jews
Brotherhood Week was originated
about eleven years ago and is author
ized. by the President, governors of
all the states, and mayors of all
towns in the country. Dr. Gottschall
pointed out that the purpose of the
movement was to adjust the Ameri-
people as not to have the hate
movements that followed the first
World War. We should have regard
and respect for the various religious
differences, and to do this we don’t
have to give up our own religion or
ask others to give up theirs.
If we expect to solve our economic,
social, and political problems it is
necessary to have grave cooperative
enterprise. There should be regard
and respect for each other and sin
cerity, trust, and confidence in each
other. According to Dr. Gottschall
the solution to our problems is, first,
to imminize our hearts against hate
movements, and, second, to build in
to our hearts the spirit and dis
position to good will in our relation
ships so we can better work together.
Brotherhood week is an attempt to
do all this.
Specific things that have been done
along this line ate the Council for
Democracy, the Council Against In
tolerance, the fight against Nazi
persecution, and the National Con
ference of Christians and Jews,
which Dr. Gottschall feels has done
most in this field. All church school
material and books in Protestant,
Jewish, and Catholic churches have
gone through a process of editing and
re-editing to take out things that
might be injurious to Other groups.
Also under the leadership of the
Council of Education a study of
all text books in all public schools
of America has been made for this
sort of thing. In this way children
will learn to appreciate what dif
ferent groups have contributed to
our common heritage. National lead
ers of many denominations are al
so working to build the idea among
their groups, first, that their hearts
are right on this matter and not
to discriminate against others just
because they are different, and,
seconM, to bo sure to form their
judgements on the basis of facts

Red Cross ^ergical Room
To Begin 4x4 Sponges
The Rtcd Cross Surgical Dressings
Room on the campus will begin
making 4x4 surgical sponges on
Tuesday of nei^t week. These dress
ings are made in much the sajne way
as the now familiar 2 x 2 ’a; so
jorkers should have no fears as
•to the diffibulty of making them.
Salm exceeded its monthly quota
for the second straight month by
completing the February quota of
5,000 dressings last week. An addi
tional 1750 sponges have been made
since the completion of the quota,
making the total done to date this
month, 6750. This is an excellent
record and much favorable com
ment has been receiveil from the
uptown chapter.
So far only about 110 members
of the faculty and student body have
participated in the making of spon
ges. This is good number, but
more workers can be used at all
times and would be greatly apprec
Since only ten percent of the
entire number of sponges needed
can be made commercially, it is
apparent that the need for volun-
teeT workers is urgent. The room
is ■ open five times a week, one
of which times should suit everyone
on the campus.

that Vera Michel6s Dean will be

The Y. W. C. A. sponsored a baby
