Even after Adolf Hitler took over the country in the 1938 Anschluss, his first name was not popular with new parents. The 100 per cent nazis liked the nordic names of Horst, Dieter and Siegfried. Non-nazis wanted nothing to do with the name. A recent survey by government officials shows that parents are avoiding the name "Adolf" as they would the plague. The trend now is to forget the new-fangled nordic appelations and give offspring such old Austrian favorites as Franz, Josef, Leopold, Karl and Hans. The survey also shows that few girls are being named Karln and Edda, as they were duing the nazri occupation. Those arc the names of Herman Goering's first wife and daughter. In the time of Confuscius, the rabbit was bred for sacrificial uses in China. Always Another Day Chicago, (U.R)—Mrs. Mary Shaw, pert and cheerful at 95, was named Chicago's oldest grandmother, and revealed the secret of her "youth."

DERAILMENT BUCKLES BRIDGE—Sixteen cars of a Missouri Pacific fretghT'tffin plunged off an Arkansas river bridge near Watson, Ark., Wednesday and a span of the bridge buckled under the impact. Only Conductor G. F. Gunter of ParagouicTArk was slightly injured. '' University Has Active School of Religion Iowa City—Twenty-two years ago an idea was being planned at the State University of Iowa. That idea has developed into the school of religion. Progressing from a small group of men who discussed the possibility of teaching religion in state universities, the idea grew to a matter of importance. Committees were appointed to work out the basic steps for the estnblish- ment of a religion school and the groundwork was laid. The first step in the plan was the calling together of 2 representatives from each of the religious groups in the state. To this number were added the university representatives. Jews, Catholics and Protestants all had a voice —many of them meeting for the first time. It was this group that approved the plan and officially established the school of religion on the Iowa campus. Chose Faculty Choosing a faculty and an administrative director came next. On March 14, 1927, the position was offered to M. Willard Lampe who accepted, and who still holds the office. Lampe had held the position of national director of university work for the Presbyterian church. The school of religion adopted an inclusive inter-faith plan with spiritual understanding as its principal objective. Such a plan is designed "to present the facts of religion without indoctrination, to reveal both the differences and likenesses among the historic religions, and to study the tremendous role of religion in human culture." Perhaps the most risky stage of development was the selection of the faculty, and the attempt to weave the various religious faiths into the proper co-operative action. The idea wasn't easy to carry out, but the idealism of the venture seemed to make the difficulties smaller. Work Together Today, the teaching staff consists of Protestant, Catholic and Jewish professors working together for the betterment of the university. This united religious interest is apparent throughout the school. Students are offered a variety of courses involving the influence of religion in the world, and new plans are constantly being worked out for a practical working program. Guest lecturers are frequently added to the staff, such as Dr. T. Z. Koo has been this year. Dr. Koo, who is a scholar of world-wide reputation, teaches a course in Chinese culture. Such insights into religious life and practice indicate concern for a connection between education and a living faith.
