Editing Staff EDITORIAL I wish to express my sincere thanks to all who have contributed to this year's Arrow. Without the cooperation, which has been so heartily g iven, of the faculty, stu­ dent body, and the loyal staff, this book would have been a failure. In the 1929 Arrow we have endeavored to portray the school life of this year. It has been written only to be enjoyed.

F o ur

You may read this now for curiosity's sake, but as you look through its pages, . when it has become a rare keepsake, your me . spent in B. P . C. enjoying these as much as you enjoy c riticisms today. Then we shall feel that our efforts have not b een in vain, and that the duty thrust upon us bas been fulfilled.


Managing Staff MANAGERIAL One more school year has come and gone at B. P. C.; one more Arrow has been edit­ ed and pub lished. However, the accomplish­ ment of such an undertaking requires a tremendous amount of work. It is impos­ sible for me to say too: much for the de­ pendable members of our Staff. Especially do I wish to express my appreciation for my loyal assistant. His faithful service and untiring labors as advertising manager have been invaluable. The cheerful cooperation of the faculty and student body has also greatly aided in the public ation of this Annual. And I wish to thank the business men of Bethany, Yukon, and Oklahoma City for responding so heartily; to our advertising program. Without their response, the financial suc­ cess of the 1929 Arrow would have been impossible.

Business Manager

I wish for the 1930 Business Manager the same degree of cooperation that I have enjoyed.

Junior Class The Junior Class of 1 928-29 have reached another milestone on their journey. Once upon a time, we started from the Land of Ignorance, m aking a determined effort to be up and out, ridding ourselves of every ob stacle that would hinder our progress to the Delectable Land of K nowledge. We have had difficulty in reaching this important and enviable place-the dig足 nified position of Juniors. The various milestones have been passed-slowly enough, it seemed to us. High School struggles are now just memories-of battles bravely fought and nobly won. Then cam e our "Freshie" days when we were so elated within and humiliated without; when the terms "freshman" and "upperclassmen" m eant so much to us; the days when we were "dubbed" and "tagged; " when College ways were so b eyond our comprehen足 sion; lessons so difficult, the grind so irksome. But we kept on. The next year brought with it the title of " Sophomore," a new outlook and more confidence. The added dignity of one station was like new wine in our veins, and helped us to count off the weary milestones in our terrific attacks on second year subjects. But we b reathed easier; we felt as if the combat with so m uch intangibility was adding something to our m ental equipment of far more importance than mere K nowledge. We were facing things more steadily; the grind was not so irksome as formerly. We have "arrived" in more ways than one. full view.

Just ahead the Delectable Land in

We push steadily forward. The hazy atmosphere of strange chemical combin足 ations is clearing up; we understand the language of those with whom we work far b etter; also the History of the Land is b eing learned. Best of all, we are becoming l!cquainted with each other. With some of our fellows, it is a never-ending pleasure to explore and travel. We are now JUNIORS-and are nearing the end. We face clearly the rIsmg sun over the m ountains of promise in the long-sought Delectable Land. We shall soon be Seniors. All the struggles forgotten; every inch of the territory covered, measured and explored. We converse fluently in the new tongue learned in our struggles to cover the land. Surely the Land of Promise b eckons invitingly to us. Next year we shall reach the end of our journey, and possess the land for which we have struggled-the Delectable Land of Knowledge. B. K .

Christmas on The San Gabriel By MARGARET PRICE McCONNELL It was the twenty-fourth of December, many years ago. An old negro stood near the hen house with a stick in his hand. In one corner of the yard was an ancient goose, craning its neck and hissing at the old man, who was shaking his cane and warning the fowl, "Yo' jes as well shet up, case we-all gwin hab roas' goose fer Chris'­ mas." His wife was softly singing, "'What kind ob shoes yo' gyine t' wear ? " as she deftly dressed two chickens. For days the getting ready had b een going on, yet there was much to do, and every one was hurrying and scurrying, running this way and that. Grandmother was making mince pies: Aunt Faith was hunting up the plum-pudding recipe. Becky had scoured the silver spoons, worn thin with long service, until they shone as bright as the new silver dollars from which they had been made many years ago; neither had the knives and forks been neglected from her ministrations for the coming feast. In the sitting room the boys were shelling and popping corn, and the pan was almost full of jolly kernels, fat and fluffy. They had worked faithfully at it, even when there had been delectable cake pans to scrape, and raisins to stone in the kitch­ en. Mother and Aunt Colemen were whispering in the b edroom, and the room smelled of apples. The children were warned away from the pantry, but its shelves were g roaning, as if with a sudden attack of rheumatism, and the brown faces of saucy g ingerbread men peeped out whenever the doors were left open. Uncle Sam and old Gyp were ready to start for briar-berries, cedar and mistle­ toe. Who would go ? A shout answered. Caps and hoods were at last found, and they were off. The live oaks glistened in the dull December sun; the "yopons" stood stiff and straight against the sky, with their bright strings of b erries ready for the cedars, whieh ranged about like Christmas trees waiting to be dressed, slowly nodding their heads as though saying, "Good will to men." They cautiously slipped by the "haunted cabin;" a broken skillet, an old green­ ish b ottle, and some ashes near the door were the only signs of former life. Beyond was the path down which the negro baby had wandered until it had b ecome b ewildered and lost. Only one small, b lack, baby hand had b een found days afterward, pointing the way the little one had gone. Further along they saw another family out for a lark at Christmas time, halt­ ing now for a moment at the dark, round basin of the spring. There was big, old Grandfather Deer, with his son and their families-seven in all, counting the babies, whose sharp little feet seemed already to feel the tingle of Christmas, as they came g aily b ounding to the water's edge. Silently our travellers slipped by, when, not far away, their attention was called to another band of pleasure-seekers. Fourteen wild turkeys were counted. The leader, alert, cautious, peering this way and that, commanded well his little army, as it marched in file up the hill to the "gobble, gobb le, gobble" of the turkey drum. From an overhanging tree grew a bunch of mistletoe, its tran�parent, waxy

Anyway, They Were There On the morning of November 22, 1928, I arose a little later than usual, and after dressing hurridly, stumbled down the steps, about two at a time, to the basement to prepare b reakfast. When I opened the dining room door, I fairly bumped into Elizabeth, Carol, and Jewell. They weer c arrying some pillows under their arms. I looked at them suspiciously, but went on about my b usiness. After they had gone up足 stairs, I said to myself, "Now, I venture those girls have been up to some meanness. It's a strange thing to me, that foolishness is all they can think about nowadays. " When the time came for Dortha, Emma, and Ruth to put the food on揃 the tables, they had, wrapped about them like a blanket, a mysterious air that was fairly team足 ing with mischief. That old tyrant, Curosity, stood at my elbows and kept nudging me until finally, I b urst out: "Emma, what in the world are you kids up to ? " "Up to ! " she fairly sc reamed at me, "up to! where have you been ? Don't you know that the Freshmen have been trying all night to get their colors on the water tower and flag pole ? and don't you know the Upperclassmen have given them a b attle royal ? " "Did the Freshmen succeed ? "

I asked deeply interested, for I was a Fresh-

man." "Well I should say not. " she answered presumptuously. After b reakfast, while I was combing my hair, I heard a noise out in the front that might easily have b een taken as coming from an Indian massacre. I heard a war whoop that completely filled the air; and looking across the c ampus, I saw the " b lue and white" waving gently in the morning breeze on the water tank and flag pole. Ora Mae c ame running up just then, and she related how Alvis had climbed the pole and tied the colors there, and how Brilhart had b rought some old black g rease from Joyce's garage and greased it. Ruth c ame around the c orner of the house, and I could tell that she, also, had been in a fight, for she was minus a shoe.

Finally, I thought to look at the top of the dormitory; there, too, the Freshmen colors were waving. Some one told me that they had waved there earlier in the morn足 ing, but Bert and John, had managed, somehow, to tear them down. There was no more paper available; so this necessitated the Freshmen sending into the City for more. And soon our colors were waving for the second time on the Girl's Dormitory. I let out such a strong, robust, yell that I surprised m.yself, and was made to wonder at its source. But my yell was short lived. I soon saw that immediate d anger threatened our colors on top of the dormitory. Vivian stood waving them, while Drotha, Ilouise, Mary Nelma, Lucille, and Frances Sue were there with b rooms to defend them. Mr. Hoag, an Upperclassman, was slowly but surely making his way to the top. He was even then on top of the arch over the front door. For a moment, I stood paralyzed. Then a water imp c ame to my rescue and made a suggestion. "Thank you, Mr. Imp. " I said, and dashed back into the house. Snatching up a pitcher, I filled it with water, and out again I went. On my way, I had picked up a pint cup. Mr. Hoag saw me preparing for the b attle. I threw one c upful but missed him. However, he saw there (Continue.d on page

Sophomore Class College is truly an institution of learning, but the subjects are not all taught in the class rooms. Our ideals of life are established while we are in c ollege. Our c ontact with o thers in the library, in the halls, on the c ampus, at chapel and at church, develops Our latent traits of c haracter. W' and the s tudents, and by the general atmosphere of the school. The most enduring friendships are formed in college, and our future is largely determined by the type of friends we choose while we are in c ollege . It is truly a privilege to be a s tudent in Bethany-Peniel College, where the per足 vading influence is c onducive to spiritual growth and scholastic attainment. We are g lad that we are the class of 1931 in B. P. C. We have an enrollment of thirty members, of which eighty-seven per cent were with us in the Freshmen class. We are well represented in the various activities of the school. We had a class party; we had a share in the class fight between the Freshmen and the Uppe r-classmen; three members of the Male Quartette are Sophomores; the President and Vice-Presi足 dent of the Student Council are members of our class; the Business Manager of the Arrow Staff and five of his helpers are taken from the Sophomore class. We were fortunate in securing Mrs . Hester Fisher Peck as our Sponsor. She guided us safely through our Freshman year, and has been our loyal s upporter this year. We apprec iate her love, counsel, and service . We are glad that Bethany-Peniel College has State accrediting for her four years of c o llege wo rk, as this will enable us to finish o ur c o urse in this much-loved school. Down through the years, wherever we shall be, you will find us s triving to be good neighbors, useful citizens, and an honor to our school; keeping before us our motto, "Climb, Though the Rocks be Rugged." Some classes glisten, Some boast, and some pass. But none c an outshine This Sophomore Class. B. W.

Freshnlan Class In the second year of the reign of King Stephen Solomon White the tribe 1932 came to dwell with the tribes of Bethany on the plains of Oklahoma. Now, in this tribe of 1932 were many warriors (seventy-four in number) of mighty muscles. These did war among the tribes of the Upper Classmen in arts of gymnasium and did triumph over them in keeping their colors flying from the water tower, flag pole, high buildings and many conspicuous places.

We are the College Freshmen, about whom you have heard so much. We came from eight other states of the Union to mingle a few years with the Oklahomans, pre­ paring for the future. Some hail from the sunny South, some from the West, some from the North, some from the East. Some of us are from large cities, others of us from the farm. But we have been melted together in a bond of sympathy, and this tie of understanding has grown stronger as the year has progressed. We have joined OUr hands and hearts, and have stuck together in a common belief that even though we are Freshmen, the Upper Classmen cannot inflict jokes upon us, without receiv­ ing a justly deserved punishment. We have matched our wits in class rooms and on the campus; have had carefree times of recreation and learned much that is not writ­ ten in b ooks. The motto of our class is, "What we are to be, we are now becoming." This maxim was well chosen, and is verified by the spirit of every member of our class. We, as a class, have put first things first. We try to please OUr Lord, and, secondly, we are seeking an education that we may be of some service to others. We have now passed the first round of this ladder, which many have done by long hours of physical work and the b urning of midnight oil to prepare lessons for the tomorrow. The Class of Nineteen and thirty-two has reasons for pride. To mention all would be to write a volume. We are pleased with our noble president, Rex Cornwell, and our sponsor, Prof. Bailey Hall, and we follow them with sublime confidence. Now, as we stand upon the shore of the great wide ocean of learning, we long to fathom its deepest mysteries. Looking out upon the future, our highest ambition and nob lest purpose is to reflect honor and dignity upon B. P. C. and the class of 1 932. W. T. W.

The District Assembly It has been the happy privilege of students of Bethany-Peniel College for the past three years to be able to attend the D istrict Assemb ly of the W estern Ok lahoma District of our Church, since this has been the third successive time the Assembly has made this place this seat of meeting. Our Senior General Superintendent, Brother H. F. Reynolds, blessed U3 with splendid counsel and advice as he presided this year. His advanced years seemed to hamper him not at all as he joined us in praising the Lord. From 1895 Brother Reync lds was vitally co nnected . with the Pente­ costal Churches of Amorica, and when they united with the Church of the Nazarene, in 1 907, he was elected a General Superintendent. He has faithfully served the Church in that capacity since. The students of Bethany-P€ niel College appreciate the life and work of our Brothel' Reynolds, and trust for his speed y recovery L'om the accident which befell him since he was here. O ur pastors came from far and near, bring ing good r eports. Some of th em had hard b attles and severe trials, but they all came up shouting the victol'y, and praising the name of our blessed Redeemer. There was a spirit of unity and h armony among the breth­ ren, and we are united in the purpose of spread ing Scriptural holiness over the land. Rev. J. ·Walter Hall was again elected as our District Superintendent to lead us on in this most holy battle. May God bless him and reward him for his faithfulness. H . F.

Many visitors were present among us, some 01 them representing d ifferent spe­ cial phases of our work. Some of them preached to us at the night services, which were evangelistic. We were glad to welcome them, especially our missionaries. Beside the missionaries who live here, or attend the College, or are on the faculty, Brother Harman Schmelzenbach and wife were with us. God wonderfully b lessed us as they brought messages of their work in th3 d ark, b enighted f ield of heathen Africa. Brother Schmelzenbach went from our school at Peniel, Texas, about twenty-one years ago, and has been there ever since. He is our pioneer misisonary in that field. The mis­ sionary service of Sunday afternoon c limaxed our Assembly. Brother Schmelzenbach was so worn and tired he could not finish his message, but his wife finished it for him. The glory fell. We had a march and love offering at the close and about $350 was given by our people of the District to help these folks get back to their work in Africa. They have returned, there are others who want to go, there are others who are needed there. Let us pray the Master of the h arvest to make it possible. O. H.

Gyp whinned a welcome as he saw his folks returning laden with brambleber­ ries and cedar, crossing the foot path of the rollicing little stream. The evergreens were placed in the buggy, and then they drove along until Gyp, the staid old gentle­ man, was standing directly under the mistletoe. He b owed his head low, but Rebekah only scrambled up upon his back. U ncle Sam scaled the tree, and crawling carefully out on the limb, whittled away the hard stem of the mistletoe, tied a rope about it, and gently swung it down to Rebekah. She passed it on to Lewis, perched upon the shafts, and he to George, dangling over the dashboard. The old clock on the mantle chimed the hour of four. The red berries up be­ hind its shining face seemed to vie with the leaping flames in the open fireplace in cheerfulness. F rom the center of the ceiling swung the great b unch of mistletoe. Wreaths of cedar hung in the windows. Garlands of green were over the piano, upon whose rack was an open sheet of music: "Joy to the world, the Lord is come ! " The very air seemed to pulsate with Christmas cheer, and command to­ For a whole day now, F ling away care now, Let us be gay, now, C hristmas is here. Tears may come after, Now, only laughter Shakes the old rafter. C hristmas is here . Down the road, as sure as sure! There they were, jogging along, U ncle C lay,. Aunt Virginia and the children, coming home for C hristmas. The sleeping baby was carried in and placed upon the bed, with other mysterious bundles, and every one was talking at once: "Yes, Aunt Sallie is spending the night with Sarah." "Cousin Sallie and Cousin Bettie would come early in the morning." "Yes, it's f inished; only a few more stitches." "No, I must make it after supper." U ncle Jacob sat in the rocking chair, his knees crossed, his slippered foot stick­ ing out in the most inviting way. It was after supper, and it was Christmas eve. The shadows from the f irelight danced up and down, making wierd pictures upon the wall, and U ncle J acob was dreaming-possibly of a little son or daughter he might some day call his own, and rock to sleep at his own fireside, or tell stories about "when he was a little boy." Suddenly his dream was b roken; there was a rush, and the room was filled with nephews and nieces begging for a story. He took the baby upon his knee, now wide awake and refreshed from her nap and throwing her arms about like an old-fashioned w indmill. She was the b aldheaded kind of baby, soft and full of dimples. Will and George were taking turns about on the floor, "riding the horse to Banbury Cross." The other children were begging for a song, "0, Miss Mousie, w ill you marry me ? " And no sooner was it repeated than someone called out, "Tell it again." One story after another was demanded and how funny they were! "Old Brother Fox," "The Tar Baby," "The F rog and the Ox." Grandmother came in with hammer and nails, diverting their attention b y call­ ing for stockings, for it was now long past a C hristmas eve b edtime. Then, with a hurried good-night, the lights were soon out, and the children in bed. (Continued on page 59)

(Continued from page 56) Sleep seemed far from Rebekah as she watched the flickering fire cast its shad足 ows upon the five little heads buried in the pillows of the trundlebeds. Sh2 herself was in the fat old feather bed, snug and warm among home-spun b lankets. The fire danced up and down, b ringing out the pattern of the blue-and-white cou nterpane. How loud th2 old clock ticked ! A hum of voices came from the next room. Coaly was barking at the full-faced moon, and from the b arn th2 big red ro03ter was sending forth a cock-a-doodle-doo. From somewhere out in the night a horse whinnied; the cattle in the lot must be restless, for a mo ther cow was persisbntly calI:ng to know if it was well with her calf. At last, the sounds l':eemed to grow indistinct, and to run together. The backlog crackled, snapped apart, and flamed up into a bright, warm blaze. Again Rebekah awoke; this time with wide-open eyes. Patches of darkness were hurrying past t o make room for one more day. There was a g limmer of light in the East, and with its coming suddenly the whole house was filled with the laughter of children and with calls from roo m to room of, "Merry Christmas." Stockings were taken down and delved into ; g ingerbread men and home-made jumping-jack s were laughed over; b eautiful sticks of molasses candy, twisted to a turn, were nibbled; and home-made pincushions, red mittens, w histles, balls, and work boxes were oh-ed and ah-ed over. Grandmother, her eyes dim with tears, held in her lap g ifts fashioned with croo ked little seams, knitting with stitches dropped here and t here, tatting that was none too even-these, with notes attached, blo tted and smudged-but all expressions of true love. There was a call from the back door, where Aunt Phyllis, Tucker, Aunt Mag and Uncle John were discovereed shouting, "Chris'mas Gif', Miss Marg'et." "Mars' Jacob, 1's done k etched yo'." "Becky, 1's bin layin' low, an' now l ' s ketched you . " "Fotch hit out, Miss Hattie." It was a well-observed custom among the negroes o f the South, and o ne prac足 ticed by most o f the whites as well, to "catch" one another's Christmas gift; the fort足 unate o ne being he who first called out the greeting, for the other must respond with a present. Aunt Mag had teased the children for days about "slippin' up on them," and how she had succeeded. Popcorn b alls were gotten out and meekly handed over, a bright red card, some brighter quilt scraps, a handkerchief neatly hemmed for Uncle J ohn, and a red one for Tucker, gingerbread men and candy for the children ; these sent them all away rejoicing. The Christmas goose was done to a turn; the hens and hams looked equally in足 v iting. From the center of the table the plum pudding sent forth a spicy odor, such as well-made Christmas puddings should have. M ince pies sto od in tempting array upon a small side table; near them cups of golden custard carried upon their tops white, fluffy balls. The wild-plum jelly shoo k with pride as it surveyed its neighbors -the creamy potatoes, bowls of b rown gravy, and savory dressing. Dinner was ready in Grandmother Lewis' dining roo m, and there were places for all-children, grandchildren, Cousin Sallie, and Cousin Reu b en and Little Sallie. All were but o ne big family to Grandmother, who, seated in her place at the head o f the table, asked a special b lessing from the Giver o f all b lessings, upon those who, that day, had no home; and those from whose hearths there arose no Christmas cheer; upon those whose hearts had grown cold because they had forgotten Him who came to bring light and love and comfort within. And the very Spirit of Christmas filled the humble home on the San Gabriel.

I Am Music Servant and Master am I; servant of those dead, and master of those living. Through me the spirits immortal speak the message that mak2s the world waep, and laugh, and wonder, and worship. I tell the s tory of love, the story of hate, the story that saves and th2 s tory that damns. I am the incense upon which prayers float to H eaven. I am the smok:! which palls over the field of battle where men lie dying with me on their lips. I am close to the marriage a ltar, and when the g raves open I stand nearby. I call the wanderer home, I rescue the soul from the depths, I open the lips of the lovers, and through me the dead whisper to the living.

One I serve as I serve all; and the king I make my slave as easily as I subject his slave. I speak throu gh the birds of the air, the insects of the field, the crash of waters on the rock-ribbed shores, the s ighing of wind in the trees, and I am even heard by the soul that kClOWS me in the clatter of wheels on city streets.

Expression Dep artment

The Department of Dramatic Art has been m ore active this year, and has really accomplished more than in any previous year. We attribute the many activities of this department to the able direc tion of our excellent teacher, Miss Kate Reese. Her unusual ab ility and admirable character has won for her a place in the hearts of every s tudent in B. P. C. The fact that the Department has made real progress is b es t shown by the con足 stant increase in the enrollment. The o rganization doubled in number before the close o f the year. Although we felt our increase in s trength, we have not been too large to b e c o ngenial, nor too small to b e an active force in the life cf the school. Mrs. Irma Shook was elected President o f the class, at the beginning of the school year. She has done faithful and efficient servic e ; led the Class on to success in all its undertakings. It is the aim o f the Department of Dramatic Art no t merely to entertain, but to b uild up a trained mind as well as a trained body, that we may b e able to give out Truth in the b es t and most effective way.

We, therefore, b elieve that before we can give a truth we must liv e it. We pro­ ceed on the principle "from within outward" and the persistent attempt is made to train each individual to present the truth in such a manner that the minds and hearts of those who hear will respond to that truth. With this result in view, the voice and body must be liberated and become per­ fect channels to convey the message. We believe that we have a message to give. The personnel of the class is s plendid-men and women who are thoroughly saved, who have met the Great Teacher of Truth, who spoke to the people as "One who had author­ ity." We b elieve that with the training we are recelvmg, in conjunction with zealous hearts, we can go forth to take our message of truth, not only to those who are around us, but also to them "that are afar off even un�o the uttermost parts of the earth."

The Physical Equipment of B. P. c. The b uildings and equi pment of Bethany-Peniel College are sec ond to none in our denomination. The las t appraisal of the c ampus and property was made Decem­ ber 27, 1 928, by W. H. Creech, Bethany Realty Co., Bethany, Oklahoma; S. H. Bundy, President of the Farmers State Bank, Bethany, Ok lahoma; and D. B. Phillips, Presi­ dent of the Firs t National Bank, Yukon, Oklahoma. U sing the appraisement men­ tioned, the assets over liabilities as shown by the last audit rendered by M. C. Fox, C. P. A. , December 31 s t, 1 928, are a little more than two hundred th::ms and dollars. This does not include the Church Plant which in reality is a part of our eq uipment, and is ill cons tant use by the school. The Church Plant is well worth fifty th::msand dol­ lars. Adding this amount to the other figures, we have b uildings and equipment with net equity of more than two hundred fifty thousand dollars. The b uildings are all brick with the exception of the Chapel Building, which is of concrete, and the Physic al Education building, which is frame. The Physical Educa­ tional b uilding is used for b oth a gymnasium and a c ampmeeting tabernacle. Six of these b uildings have been erected in the past six years, and the other two have been remodeled. This gives us s ix new b uildings and two prac tically new ones. Our classes are adequately housed, and our building problem is very nearly solved. The one out­ s tanding need, and the only need along this line at present, is a Fine Arts b uilding. This could be built to supply adequately our needs for the present, for about fifteen thousand dollars. We are praying that some individual or family wil l erect this b uild­ ing for us as a Memorial Building of Fine Arts, in memory of some loved one who was interested in holiness schools espec ially at Peniel, Texas, or here in Bethany. The equipment for our laboratories has received special attention in the past few years. Thousands of dollars have been spent here, and more is being added almost daily. We now have sufficient equipment for two years in Physics, and two years in Chemistry, and next year there will be added sufficient equipment for the third year in b oth these departments. The furniture in the dormitories was put in new, in the last year, almost throughout. The offices and class rooms have als::> been equipped with new furniture, until we feel that we are pretty well furnished at this point. The Library, perhaps, has been increased more proportionately than any other part of the school. In the past few months hundreds of new copies of up-to-date b ooks have been added, and the books have been indexed so that it is possible to find them without delay. A faculty member has b een given the position of Librarian, and we feel proud of our Library. A. L. P.

Gymnasium

Our New Gymnasiuln The newest unit to Our school, i n the way of buildings, is the Gymnasium of which we are very proud. The floor is of oak; the ventilatio n and light are adequate. The present unit occupies a floor space of five thousand square feet, being fifty wide by one hundred feet long. The Gymnasium has been used for basket ball only, so far; the basket ball court is one indeed to be proud of, and is not excelled in this sec tion. There are going to be additions made to the Gymnasium in the near future, and next year i t will provide ample room for other indoor athleti cs. This building i s to be used also for the Bethany-Peniel Campmeeting which is held every summer. We thank the Central West Educatio nal Zone for this s plendid building .

of the last event, the mile race, the Rangers were two points in the lead but the Comets took first and second places on the mile which made them victorious by five points . Paul Garrett, a Ranger, won first place as high point man making thirty-six of the Rangers seventy-nine points.

We are proud of Pau l ; he is a real athlete.

The Young Ladies' Gospel Team

Bethany-Peniel College offers many opportunities which young people in worldly schools know nothing about.

Many colleges have their fraternities and sororities, but we have organizations which far surpass those-our Gospel Teams. In the midst of the rush of school life the Young Ladies' Gospel

Team

,�\ �:� �i

affords

opportunity for the girls to forget the cares of the week, and meet on Thursday night for a time of getting closer to the Lord-praying, singing, reading the blessed Word of God, and pouring their hearts out one to another.

vVith all due respect to the other

services, the girls admit that they feel God's presence more keenly and receive more help from the Gospel Team Meetings than from any other services. Other than our regular

meetings

the girls are

privileged to hold

services in

churches near Bethany and thus receive practical training in Christian work. opportunities !

And the end is not yet-we are looking forward to better things by

Young Men's Gospel Team

The Young Men's Gospel Team is a time-honored organization in Bethany-Peniel Penie1 College.

In days gone by many a young preacher has been encouraged in his

holy calling by attending the weekly meetings of this organization.

Not only in days

past have the meetings proved such a help, but also no w they are such. This year a splendid plan of procedure for our meetings was suggested by Pres. White, and adopted by the Team.

At one of the Monday evening meetings the time

is given over to a "beginning" preacher ; another evening i s given to testimony, an足 other to prayer and another to some experienced preacher or teacher . When you come to B. P. C . , young men, make your plans to fall right in with the Boys' Gospel Team.

It can be truthfully said that you will never find a group of

By consistent effort and strenous work, our

The Mid-Winter Revival It was our good fortune, in our mid-winter revival, to secure the

services of

Rev. L. A . Reed, pastor of the First Church of the Nazarene in Long Beach, California. Brothel' Reed is without doubt one of the most succes sful pastors in our church, but he is also a very proficient evangelist.

He is one of the outstanding men of the church.

Brother Reed took his degree, in 1913, at our college in Peniel, Texas ; we are proud of the fact that he, there足 fore, considers our own school his Alma Mater, since the two scho::>ls have united.

He

Having been

home, and having consecrated his life to God at an early age, he has been very conscientious in all of his pursuits. His education is used to a wonderful advantage in the building and the presentation of each of his sermons. His strong, clear

Both the morning and the evening services were especially blessed of God.

No

altar calls were without respons e ; and many times, it was difficult to find room for all of the seekers.

W e feel sure that eternity alone will reveal the results of the efforts

of those ten days, for their influence will never die. However, we were very happy to notice many immediate results.

Many more of our students became Christians, and

the general spirituality of the school was greatly increased . We especially appreciated the

messages

about the Holy Spirit.

These

were

presented in the morning services, and they dealt particularly with the work and the gifts of the Spirit.

They were very timely messages, and they undoubtedly did much

to establish all of us in the Faith.

W e shall always remember some of the safeguards

against both formality and fanaticism brought out so forcefully by Brother Reed.

success, together with the success of many others of the age in which we live, is a challenge to us as young people to which lies out before us.

Likewise a succesful store must be rooted deep in the confidence of its custom足 ers.

It gains its strength from the public.

To continue to grow and widen its sphere

of usefulness, it must draw from the public this vigor of confidence, and must rise to the very top of all its dealings-Honesty-揃quality-and service rendered, all are great factors in the achievement of success in any business. your patronage.

On these principles we solicit

We must have your confidence-We must have your patronage足

We must have your friendship-without these we could not exist.
