EDITORIAL

'1'he yeaI' of '19-'::?O is epochal in the history of Bethany. _As this is the first AnmeJ to be published. The Bethaniail is the voice of a united student body who ha s a message that must be spoken. A messenger must speak. 11'01' years we ha\'e felt the need of a college Annual, and with the noble co-operation of the student boc1~' we have endeavored to put out one that will be beneficial to the school; and be a book (b,t the students can keep to l-eview their old school clays. The editor of this Annual has t'ndeavored to edit this in the right way, and wherein we have failed we ask your s~-mpathy; wherein we have succeeded, your commenda tion. Oklahoma Nazarene College stands for more than educa'.ion, anel higher than !Success. -Wh ile she attempts to rreate in men and women a vision, and energy to realize that vision, she also seeks to instill in the hearts of her students the need of spiritual cC]uirment. To be real successful, it is not enough to have mercl~' vision and energy, but behind these, and above thest', mnst be the Spirit of God ruling ~md directing the energy; and to send out students wi th this, is our aim.

HE office of Business Mana~'er is one of grot importance and responsibility. Institutions that succeed must be conducted on a business basis and according to bus;ness principles. Men of excellent I2pll ~ation, and teste(l worth are sought to take the leael that the confidence of investors might be secured; for if an individual lacks confidence in the management of ,aI1 Institution he will not in-vest his money. Oklahoma Nazarene College was fortunate in securing the services of Rev. A. O. Duncan as Business Manager. Brother Duncan came to us as a successful minister anc1 business man with a number of years of experience. God laid upon his heart the needs of the College, and he gl acUy gave his time and energy to help in making the school a success. During the month of August, Brother Duncan arrived and s'Oon had in hand the needs of the Institution. He began work by a systematic plan which was meeting with success. Because of sickness he w,a s forced to abandon his labour and seck a more healthful climate. During the few months of his labors a number of subscriptions on finance were secured. A campaign ,vas. launched for the raising of $35,000 in the REV. A. O. DUNCAN, Business Manager stat~ of Oklahoma. 'With the assistance of the G8nOklahoma Nazarene College, Bethany, Oklahoma. era1 Superintendents and President \ÂĽidmeyer, the sum of $14,579.00 was subscribed. Brother Duncan laid plans Etnd work was ftar tecl to finish the Bresee Memorial Bli'ilding. vVe are jruLy thankful to God for this good man and the wo r k that he has accomplished among us. May Oed SOOll restore him to health and strength. '< C." Page 5 - - - - - - - - - - - . - - - - . - - -.-

bre(l; it makes good company for your mentality. , V"ho are to be the great leaders of tomorrow ? ,iVho ,a re to be the "X" and "Y" of the great equation here 1 Are they to come from our common schools, or even from our academies? No ! The great cry of today is for the college-bred man. It is our pUfJ::ose to bless hum anity and to elevate society. Let us realize one thing, that as college fini shed men, cur opportunities are greater and our field much broader. vVe walk out into wide avenues where others do not tread; we see VISIOns that o~h e r s do not behold; we minist 2r where others c:mnot serve. Through the college we have been trained to see [~nd to serve li fe anew and as those who have been stron gly gird ecl we ha sten forth to do and to dare in the Na me of Chr;st our Lord, who saw and knew the real "a~ue of man. L . M.MAY

After a certain amount of meditation -we are brought to the realization that the value of a colleg8 training is inestima bl e. The best c1aim that a College education can possibly make on your respect, the best thing it can aspire to accomplish for you is this: That it should help you to know a good man when you see him. r:ehe "College "educJtion is called higher because it is supposed to be so genera] and so disin terested. In "Schools " you get a relatively narrow, practical skill, -whereas the "College" gives you more liberal culture, a broader outlook, and a philo sophical atmosphere. While in school you were made into an efficient instrument for doing a definite thing. The college will suffuse your whole men~ality with something more ;mportant than skill. The" College " r edeems you, it makes you well

The History of the class beg'an with the year of 1917 when a group of the chosen OIles of God had received the great commsision, "Go ye into all the wor~cl ,and preach the gospeL" They felt that to preach" good tidings unto the meek, to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captive, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness," was the greatest honor ever conferred upon humanity. They knew that the honorable position carried with it a tremendous responsibility, for they were to deal with immortal souls. The responsibility and the great importance of efiicient preparation for meeting the needs of the day was the topic of frequent discussion among members in the class room and elsewhere. The class also discussed how heresy and infidelity of modern fmes have so subtly forced their way into the church institutions and are saturating the once holy atmosphere with their pernicious influence. Such institutions ,a re turning out whole bodies 'of ministers who are preaching their doctrine from the pulpits to their congregations and are so tainting the minds of the masses with skepticism and atheism. r:Phus burdened with the great need of the time, the class has pondered over their studies which were taught by their sacrificing teachers. Under the great banner of Prince Rmmanuel the," novv go with their diplomas in hand; and a greater vision of fallen humanity, and a burning passion for the salvation of immortal souls.

Music is that of Heaven whlch we enjoy 011 earth. Ob! the rapturcus charms. and the POWN it bas to soften, melt and enchant ln lts spirit chords of subduin g harmony! Truly there is power in music; an omnipotent power. It rules over the sonl, causes it to bow down and worship, wrings adoration from it and compels the heart to yield treasme3 of lov e. Every emotion ' "from the most reverent devotion to the wildest gushes of frolicsome joy, it holds subject to its imperativ e wi ll. It calls the religious devotee to worship, the patriot to hi s country's ,a ltar; the friend to the altar of friendship and the lover to the si(le of his beloved. It elevates, empowers and strengthens them all. The human soul lS a mighty harp and all its strings vibrate to the gush of music. vYho does not know the softening power of music? It is llke the augel whispering kind words in the hour of trouble. Who can be angry when . the voice of lov e speaks ln song~ vVhohears the harsh voice of selfislmess when music gathers up her peariy lov e notes to salute the ear ,vith a stray song of parac1ise ? The human voice is th e most perfect musical instrument ever made; and well it might be, for it had the most skillful maker. The voice should be trained to sing the tones to man an(1 God. AroU11(l the fireside ln the soc1al clrcle it should sing the voice of love and at the altar of God it should pour forth melodious praise. Music sweetens the cup of bltterness, softens the hand of want, lightens the burden of life, ma kes the heart courageous) and the soul cheerfully c1evod. Into the soul of childhood alld ~'o uth it pours a tide of l'Nleeming influence. It breathes like a miracle of insplratlon through the soul, to elevate, refine and spiritualize. When we think lHJW much the \vorld wants awakening:, we can think of no power better nalnulated to do it than that which dwells in the mysterious melodies of music. Ld. everyone become musicians anc1 surel~' they will become Ilving souls. H is .reasonable to suppose that swellin g numbers hav e rolled and made Heaven vocal with prni~f' slnce creation dawned. But the first account of it on reconl was at the laying; of the foundation of the earth, when the "mornlng stars delighted with the promise of a new planpt" sang together and all the sons of God shouted for jo~路." As soon as the earth was made, its rocky spires thrown un, its fo],est harps strung, its ocean organs tuned, it raised its everla sting anthems to swell the chorus of the skies. Music means not merely times adapted to particular emotion s-a set of notes,a warbling voice, a strain of melting sweetness-O ! 110, no, music can be acted as well as sung. ']'he heart may rna ke music when the lips are dumb. A simple word may be full of muslc and stir the pulses to new .and better emotions, tbe soul to higher joys.

On one of those bright, sunshiny mornings in t:le early part of the month of September, during' the year, nineteen hundred and fifteen, groups of men~' -heal'ted youths could be seen assembling in the office of O. N. C. for the purpose of enrolling their ll~_ mes on the records. The group of which I shall speak was composed of Fl'eshman'with gay countenances and with no fear for the future. The OJ1J~' two members of the present senior class, who helped to ma1<e up this Fr路oshman class of '15 are Mr. Freeland and the writer. During our Freshman clays ,ve found plenty of time to realize the fact that Sophomores' hearts were never soft. For this rea011 our path was not strewn with roses. Beside the pranks of the bloodthirsty" Sophs" we had our new acquaintances, L ::t tin, Algebra, History and J~nglish with whom to contencl. The~~ were harel to become intimate with on account of their peculiar traits. The Sophomore year welcom ed Miss Jernigan and Mr. Campbell, Miss Vawter and Mr. Jones to our class. I.Ve now had the privilege which all Sophomores possess, and that privilege was revenge. Only we forgot that we owed our revenge to the Juniors, and forgetting this, we treated the Freshman class as we had been treated. At the close of our Sophomore year Mr. Freel and bid farewell and went to Kansas. The -writer could not remain in school on account of ill health. The next year being Junior year, we put on dignit~路 and could not be caught in any foolishness. Our studies were our duties and no one ever heard of a Junior neglecting his fluty. On account of ill health Miss Jcrnigan could not continue in school. Miss Jo~mson ,vasaddec1 to the roll. In the beginning of the Senior year, the regis tel' 8howe(1 that we had all come back to share the honors of graduation. One new name was added, that of Miss McAnally. vVe have had opposition of different kinds. Th e ~'OllIlg- ladies have overcome many different hindrances. Mr . .Jones, Mr. ]'reelanc1 and Mr. Campbell have heroically overcome their clif6culties and deserve honors for working their way through school. After these years of toi l and labour, we have now reachecl the goal. vVe are not sorry for the conflict and effort we have put forth. vVe go out with courage to meet obstacles and perplexing problems that will in years come to us, for we feel that in some mcasure we have been prepared for them in our high school chorus.-B11tlt DouglIL~s.

Listen! Ye honomble friends of the senior class of ]H~O. Listen! To what I shall say unto you, and what strange news I shall reveal. It fell my lot as a member of the Senior class of 1920 to tell forth the things that shall shortly come to pass. On a certain day the veil which hides the fu ture ,vas lifted and I saw, beneath the tall, murmuring pines of Georgia, Miss Jernigan playing to the -West Winds. A_gain I happened to find myself in a District Assembly of the west and behold, in the chair sat my old classmate, now Rev. Marvin Jones. And it came to pass, I saw the throngs assemble and I heard a voice which made the birds hush in humility. It was Miss Vawter singing. Even as I turned, across my vision came a sight most beautiful to behold. A room full of sweet faced children and Miss McAnally as the noble instructor. Again I looked, and beheld the senate chamber. I heard the voice of a silver toned orator. My soul was stirred, my being filled, for it was the voice of m~- old roommate and pal, Mr. Freeland. And now I heard the groans of the wounded and dying. I caught the smell of the smoke of the battle. I saw moving among the wounded, one who had a face like an angel and a touch of a mother. ,Vho is it 'I Is it true ~ Behold! Our class Historian, now Dr. Ruth Douglas. A change came over the vision and I saw moving with stately step amid household duties, making all to glow with love and gentlemess, a -woman. It was Miss .J ohnson and as she stood alone, I camâ&#x201A;Ź and drew nigh to her and we spake together.

The Seniors act so dignified, And act so puffed up too, They act as if the~T knew it all, "And of co!tll'se We think they do."

Their LASSn~S are so very fair, ..And polite '! I'll say they [.1'eOf all the o,ther la ssies here 'Ilhc." surpass them all by far.

The路 Juniors ad so ve!')' brav e, But th e~- are just ,a bluff, For when they see those "Sophs" appear Then a curling gOfS the clust.

Theil' boys are stron g and manly And always take a y;art In even-thin o' or intel'est A nc1 strive with all th eir heart,

The " Freshies" tr~- to imitate The othpr classes all And of all the blunders they do make. Are OR! so laughabl e.

The "Fresbics" shrink when they behold A Sophomore brave and strong, .. So was it when their lives began So be it all along.

But then the clear oW "Sophs;" The)路 are brave and tl'l1e as blue 1"01' when the,' - sa ~- the,'- 'II do a thillg They always put it through.

So thus I'll have to end this toast, Of Sophomores staun ch and braveFor now of com se, all of you knmv How Sophomores 11 t haye.

It was in the month of February, when spring was giving us an example of what she migllt later bring to us. The spirit of spring had entered the school land all were eager for excitement. A class meeting was called for the purpose of planning a picnic. There was no dissenting voice, so the following (lay was set for the great outing. At last moming came and ~we couM not have ~wish e d for a more beau tiful and desirable (lay. Everything was full of life, even the binls from the treetops seemed to be telling us that spring wa s at hand. A big truck which ha s been or<le1'ed for the day wa s at its appointed place, puffing and snorting. anxious to take our happy group. Soon we .'\"ere on ou]' way, laughing, shouting and talking, having' the" time" of our lives. In a littl e more than au hour, we found our 路 selves by th e side of a beautiful littl e stream which wound its way through a large pa sture an(l on it.s way to the sea. Here we unloaded, securell our lun ch es a11(l plunged in for a. good tim e. rChe boys soon had H big bon fire going and the merry cro\\'(l ~ urroundecl

it. The woods rang with our laughter as we toa sted mars hmellow s. Our lun ch was spread with many delicious eatables, such as sandwiches, cakes, pies, fruit, nut, pi ckles, wennies and marshm ellovvs ga.lore. In half an hour our lunch wa s fini shed and nothing left save a few crumbs which we @ave to tlle birds. Dinner past. the boys amused themsel ves by huntillg and fi shing, while th e girls, thru their dislike for Cresar, had a mock burial for him, at which .\-ou may be sure there wa s no mourning. (See snap pictme) . Ju st after the burial, the girls heal'c1 a loud shot a11(l a s hrill Cl.Y which filled thorn with fear. Trembling the.\' all rushed in the direction the sound camo from, but to their ~ Ul'pris e and joy, the.\' found that all the excitemont was over the death of a cotton tail. rnle rest of th e afternoon wa s to us well spent [lud wben on e of our number happened to look at his wateh we found it was tim e to r eturn hom e.

"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, r ightly dividing the word of truth.' '-2 Tim. 2 :15. The following quotation is from the articles of Incorporation, Article III.-" The purpose is to establish and maintain a Holiness College and Bible School for both sexes under the management of the Church of the Nazarene. "The Bible is to be a prominent text book and taught as the Divinely inspired Word of God, from Genesis to Revelation, both inclusive; contrary to the prevalent destructive higher criticism." The Bible! Blessed Book! The Book of Books The inspired words of a Holy, Infinite, Omniscient God to man! All may receive this, God's message. The best of all nations have seen the greatest need of the Bible. "It is no mark of wisdom that our colleges and seminaries have discarded the Bible," said Sir "William ,Tones, the great Oriental scholar. "I have regulmly and attentively read the Holy Scriptures and am of the opinion that this volume, independently of Divine origin, contains more true sublimity, more exquisite beauty, more pure morality, more important hidory and finer strains of peotry and eloquence than could be collected from all other books." Realizing the need of Bible study, each course in the curriculum is provided with work in Bible. Each student is required to take a Bible study la nd thus we hope to acquaint each individual with the truths of the Blessed Book. No time is lost in Bib Ie Study. The Book treats of practically all of the educational subjects of the day. ,Ve can learn of His tory, Geograph~T, Astronomy, Geology, Science, Language, Political Economy, Phychology, Sociology, Theology, etc. Education is not complete without a knowledge of the Bible. Christian character is constructed upon the blessed Book. Bible study fits individuals to become good citizens, christian workers, ministers and missionaries. It tempers the life, inspires th 2 ideal, and gives the essent~al truth to prepare man for Heaven.

BOOK V.


CHURCH The purpose of a denominational institution of learning and a local church. when located in close proximity to each other, and promoted for the benefit of some constituency, seem so nearly parallel and are so corppletely interwoven with each other that it would be impGssible to draw a distinct line between the interests of the two. Either one is effected in direct proportion by the prosperity or ad versity of the other. The managem'ent of the OKLAHOMA NAZARENE COLLEGE, and the promoteFs of the CHURCH of the NAZARENE of Bethany are fully aware of these facts. Thrrefore the administration of the two institutions are conducted ~n perfect harmony. i'

It is the business of the school to educate, cuftivate", refine and polish her students to bring out the very best there is in them.

I:

It is the business of the church to environ them with a spiritual atmosphere so completely charged with the divine presence as to make it hard. for a student to resist Christ.

\

When the present incumbent assumed the pastorate there was a wholesome revival spirit among the people of both church and school. Since that time God has richly blessed us with a continuous revival. Not a week has passed that did not witness salvation services.

i

I,

I:

Our congregations on the Sabbath are excellent. The prayer meetings are blessed. The large SUIlday School is doing a good work. The 'different societies and organizations of the Young People are conducting aggressive and effectual christian warfare against evil. The puhlic is invited to attend these meetings and enjoy with us " the blessings that characterize them.
