INTRODUCTION

--

I f, i n the years to come, this Arrow recalls memories and preserves records of school life at B ethany-Peniel College, it will have fulfilled its purpose. To those intimate with her, Bethany-Peniel College suggests a love of truth and a constant urge towards progress. That this Arrow should accurately reflect the character of Bethany­ Peniel College surroundings is our s incere desire. In the years to come, may this tenth volume of T H E ARROW, by recalling to our minds the sincere friendships and rich experiences we have gained on our campus, cause us to cling more firmly to the "Faith of our Fathers" and to establish better our trust in Him who died for us.

���RO-W-------------

"I Wish 1 Were Rich" Most people d o want to be rich . L e t u s study a moment ! Perhaps you may be yet. It is interesting. to be rich . I have seen people come into newly and easily acqui red wealth, and they' made an i nteresting show incIeed. What comfort! What self assurance ! \!\That security ! What exaltation to be thus marked out and favored of the gods ! Only one thing lacking - the guarantee that it would be perpetual. But here is the rub ! The gods are against the wealthy. It is pathetic how wealth takes its flight and it is tragic what wealth leaves behind.· B ut I f ear I am thinking of earthly possessions, money ancl goods, and lands, as being wealth. I knew a .man once in a small community in an eastern state. By haed work and careful manage­ ment he was able to support a family of nine children and to pay his honest obligations. He found del ight in nature: he loved flowers, birds, trees, and the stars. He read with profit good books and papers. I-I: was not a minister, they pai d him the high tribute of calling on him to pray with their sick and to say words over thei r dead. Every n ight he gathered his family about him ancl read wonderful things from the Holy B ible. H e lay clown in peace to rest at night. One morning i n his seventieth year this man was stricken. To loved ones, nejghbors, and friends he said, "For years I have been laying up treasures above and now I am going to them." Quietly, peacefully, and i n faith, he slept his last sleep, and shall 'one clay awake to l i fe eternal. In my opinion this man enj oyed real wealth. He had a family, enough to support them and to pay his honest debts ; he loved nature and science ; he enj oyed the confidence and respect of his friends. He died in faith and left for his seven sons and two daughters as a heritage, the memory of a Ii Fe of honor, faith, and piety. Yes, you can be rich - rich i n family t ies and home, rich i n a living, with obligations paid, rich i n friends, and an education. and, finally, rich in peace and contentment w ith an unfaltering trust in God and in His Ward. There is no greater wealth than thi s ! -DR. A. K. B RACKEN

THE SE NIOR CLASS N ever before in the history of the school has the Senior Class hac! such a challenge before them.

The world at this time

1S passing through one of the

worst depressions that bas ever been known.

Through the prosperity of the preceding years men became busy amassing wealth and became so self-confident that they forgot the spiritual side of life. This has resulted in much of turmoil and unrest. Hence, the need now is not only the restoring of economic stability, but also the teaching of a Christian philosophy which will give the world pern1anent spiritual values. This task calls for people with a spirit of service. service begins in personal contact with Jesus.

We believe that all true

One cannot know I-lim personally

without catching the warm contagion of His spirit for others.

And there is a

fine fragrance, a gentle, soft warmth about the service that emanates from being with Him.

Wherever the spirit of the Lord Jesus sways the heart, there is a

r)assion to serve. Over half of our class of twenty-nine members are called to the 1111l11stry. These and the remaining members of the class are determined to do active service for humanity. Through the four years of our college work we have tried to learn the lessons of life - of ministering to mankind by bringing love, happiness, and hope into the lives of others - as weJl as to learn the lessons which are found in books. Only as we shall be able to put these lessons into practice, shall we co�sicler our education successful. In any success that we shall attain we shall be indebted to our president, our faculty, our pastor, and oUT sponsor, Mrs. B. M. Hall, for their help during these years of school work.

President Bracken has taught us to apply his history

class lectures and his chapel talks to our every day lives.

He has dealt with

present-day conditions and needs in such a way that he has made us realize the urgent neecl for a turning back to God as the only solution to our problems. Our faith in God, who alone can sol"ve our problems and bring us safely through this present difficulty, is expressed in the words of this poem:

"A Ilew star Was lost ; here U/ e all aspire to heaven ami there is heaven Above us. If I stoop I llio a darli: tremendous sea of cloud I t is but for a tinte ; I press G od's lamp Close to 11'1Y breast ; its splendor soo n or laie, Will pierce the glo01n. I shall emerge some day."

THE JUNIOR CLASS The education for which we are all seeking i s not found alone i n books, but includes the ability to concentrate one's energies and the desire to be faith ful to a trust. At the completion o f the third year o f our col l ege course, the class of 1934 has been able - to prove the truth of this statement. The class presi dent, Mr. Langford, has been a competent and efficient leader, making the class one o f t h e most active i n school . T h e vice-president, M r . Lewis, i s a capable young preacher and evangel ist. Mr. Lewis also has a high scholastic standing. Three members are on the Arrow Staff, enj oying its acc011lpl ishments. Four are in the orchestra. One member has the responsible position o f school nurse. Mr. Venable has the j oy o f being preceptor o f the boys' dormitory. S i x members o f the class are in d ifferent quartet organi zations. One is a scout master ; another, M i ss Spurlin, i s a librarian, and co-editor o f the Reveille Echo. The senti ments o f the personnel of the class are expressed in the Latin motto : "Esse quam videre." Each member does have an earnest desire to be rather than to seem. Through the unli mited energies and persi stency of these loyal members, the success of the Senior Sneak was i nterrupted. Also the banquet given the Seniors at the Huckins Hotel in Oklahoma City was a splendid success. Our Junior Class has been typical in its career. The Freshman's first knowl­ edge of coll ege is similar to that of a sol dier ; he learns to get in line or to get out. He continues in the Sophomore year to fmd that there is no better brain food than the swallowing of false pride. B ut when the college student steps out on the threshold of the Junior year, he readily affirms the statement of the author who said, "When you know how l ittle you know, you will know more than you ever knew." However, during this period of uncertainty some of us greatly appreciate the soothing words of the poet who said, "All things come to him who waits. " T h e Senior says, "Almost any clerk can fit you to a hat , but you must fi t yourself f o r that which you hope t o be." With this in mind, we await o u r day of graduati on with plans perf ected to go out into l i fe to possess the things that we know are ours.

LIVI NG BY FAITH Volumes have been written i n an endeavor to define faith . Dr. S. Parkes Cadman, o f New York City, it is said, after preaching an hour and a hal f on faith, felt he had fai led utterly in his attempt to define it and cried out , " Faith ! "What is it ? Who knows ?" A l i ttle olel woman in the congregation j umped to her f eet and said, " I know. Faith I S this-God said it, and I beli eve it." B ut one defi nition o f faith is gi ven in the \I\Tord of God. We read in H ebrews 1 1 : 1, "Now faith is the substance o f things hoped for. the evidence o f thi ngs not seen . " The B ible is not a book o f definitions. I t i s more : it is a book o f stories and o f faces. It does not say, " Learn this definition." No, rather, it says, " Look at these faces and read these stories." A fter giving a definition of faith, the writer to the Hebrews takes the part of an artist and crowds the canvas with pictures--pictures of those who li ved and died by faith. H . B. MACRORY

" Faith is the substance of things hoped for . " It is the substance, the found­ ation, of our hope in Christ. The Apostle Paul states in Galatians 2 :20, " The l i fe which I now l ive in the flesh I live by the faith o f the Son of God." Again " faith is the evidence of things not seen . " It is the evidence-that is the conviction, the assurance-of thi ngs not seen. I t i s the vision faculty o f the soul ! How is one to obtain this faith ? Many l ook to the wrong source. Mul titudes depend upon feeling, others upon emotion ; but Hebrews 12 :2 declares it comes by "looking unto J esus, the author and finisher of our faith ." He it is who furnishes us grace by which to believe that He is and that H e is a rewarder of them that dil igently seek Him. Faith is always tri umphant. By faith Enoch walked alone with God i n one o f the darkest hours spiritually the world has ever known. By faith N oah pre­ pared an ark to the saving of his house. By faith Moses led I srael from Egypt and its bondage to the borders of the Land of Promise. By faith men of every generation have walked with God in an unbroken fellowship. W ithout faith it i s impossible to please H im. "Faith of O U I' fath ers ! Holy faith ! We will be true to Thee till death !" -H . B. MACRORY

THE SOPHOMORE CLASS The Sophomore Class is usually regarded as i nsignifi cant, famous for nothing. The Freshmen are famous for colorful ways, their color corresponding to I reland's. The Junior Class is famous for its hemic, burdensome task, that o f feeding the Seniors. The Seniors are famous for years of suffering endured, and for i m­ minent departure. But Sophomores-they have no fame ! The Sophomore Class o f Bethany-Peniel College o f 1 932- 1 933, however, has disproved this nIl e . I ts members are active in Delta Rho ; they enter in the Gospel Teams ; they participate in Girls· and Boys' Glee Clubs ; they fil l important places in the orchestra an d the dramatic club. The president of the Sophomore Class is a member of the Student Council. The art editor and assistant advertising manager o f the Arrow Staff are Sopho­ mores. The Sophomore Class has representatives in both the Male Quartet and the Troubadours, the brass quartet. The Sophomore Class has not lacked SpI rIt and originality. I t presented one of the most original and entertaining chapel progTams of the year when · · R adio Station B-U-N-K" was on the air. The Class is not lacking in social spirit . To close the semester, it had a most delightful party at the Girls' Dormitory. The Sophomore Class has a sense of deep appreciation for Pro fessor Delbert Gish, our sponsor.. We find he helps us in every way, always ready to encourage, suggest, and work for the interest of each individual and for the class. With stich a guide we cannot do less than be a success ful, friendly, and busy class. VI e also feel that we have a very capable class president. Ray Hance is not only unselfish in his work for his class, but serves also on the Student Council and the Arrow Staff. Besides having these wide interests, he is a nS1l1g young preacher and conducts several revivals during each school year.

Our class union has given us many dear friends and many happy memories. May these be perpetuated and held as dear and as enduring as our loyalty for Bethany- Peniel College.

THE WESTER N OKLAHOM A DISTRICT ASSEMBLY I f the old hymn-writer who said " Spirit of Holiness on us descend" could have attended the B ethany Church of the Nazarene from September 20 to 25 o f t h i s school year, he could have realized t h e fulfillment o f his request. I t was exactly that Spirit which we enj oyed at the District Assembly meeting here at that time. In the records for the first evening service is found the following statement : "At 7 :30 a great evangelistic service was held. The sweet spirit which was noted during the service was indicative of the good assembly which followed. " General Superintendent Goodwin, who was t h e leader, was a t his best. A t the first business session he gave a n inspirational talk on "The Nazarene Obj ective," which he said was the building o f Holy Character. He caused us to come t o the conclusion that our church was a means to that gl orious end. N ever could anyone possibly think that our institution was an end within itsel f and at the same time get much comfort out o f that good message. There were other worthwhile messages. Dr. J. G. Morrison, the General Treasurer, talked twice on Stewardship and thereby made complacency an im­ possibility with all who heard him. Sister Heslop's message on M issions was both entertaining and stimulating. These are only a few of the good messages and messengers, all of which proved great blessings to the assembly. Reverend J . Walter Hall, the D istrict Superintendent, gave his report which showed that the work had progressed throughout the district and that the blessings of the Lord were upon our people. It was with regret on the part of the District that Reverend Mr. Hall would not consider re-election to his office. The election of a new D istrict Superintendent had an unusual i nterest . This interest was two-fold. In the first place, the difficulty in electing one to this office caused a degree of anxiety. In the second place, the beauti ful spirit which was manifest amid the differences o f opinion was refreshing. Reverend J. W. Short was elected on the nineteenth ballot. Out of this unusual election it seems to be the opinion that the district secured an excellent superintendent. All feel that he . i s God's choice for the place. The Assembly enjoyed a very impressive ordination service on Sunday after­ noon. A class of nine were ordained as Elders i n the Church o f the N azarene. ( It was interesting to note that eight o f the nine had taken work at B ethany-Peniel College. ) These ministers o f the Gospel are now taking their place in the great church of God. As Doctor Goodwin prayed for and gave the charge to each member of the class, the presence of the Lord was greatly mani fested. The closi ng message was given by the retiring Di strict Superintendent, Reverend J. Walter Hall . This was one of the greatest assemblies, f rom every point of view, in the history of Western Oklahoma District.

THE FRESHM A N CLASS "The gods for l abor sell us all things ." Not only has this statement proved true down through the years, but the words even apply to the people of this day. As last year was one of financial struggle for the maj ority of people, many young people gave up the idea of a college education ; yet in spite of tremendous financial handicaps, sixty-six boys and gi rls registered as Freshmen i n B ethany-Peniel College. This represei1ted not only a number much larger than that o f either of the previous two years, but also over one-third o f the entire semester's enroll ment . There was probably not a single one of the number who did not give up something treasured, who did not make some kind of sacrifice, in order that he might come to school. The very number spells courage and sacrifice. Thomas Tapper once said, "Do you know how it is that people do great things ? They command themselves. Having determined to do something, they wqrk, work, work, to finish it at any cost . " This characteristic of stead fastness gives them strength o f character. This year's Freshmen have courage or many of them would never have enrolled in school last fall with such meagre financial aid ; they have determination, for the very act of staying in school has meant work, work, work, for most of them. The Freshmen o f the class o f 1 933 enrolled in school for vanous reasons. Some came with a desi re to learn anything learnable ; some came for the purpose of enjoying the spiritual fellowship that 13 ethany-Peniel offers ; some enrol led that they might develop their abilities of leadership ; others came that they might make wider social contacts ; but all enrolled with the determination to fit themselves for life and to l ive these four years i n a richer way than they could have l ived them anywhere else. This year Dr. B racken said i n a chapel talk, "In coll ege you are not only preparing for l i fe, you are living l i fe." The Freshmen have truly lived l i fe this year. The members o f the class have taken part i n almost every activity that has been offered by the school . The Freshmen have been represented in the l ist who have made high scholasti c marks ; they have gi ven t h e school some o f i t s best athletes ; they have furnished talent for the Gospel Teams, the Glee Clubs, the Expression Department, the M inisterial Association, and the Student Counci l . This Class has not been lacking either in ability or i n determination. At the beginning o f the year B uddy Camfield was elected president o f the class ; Erma Ruth Gilbert, vice-president ; Elsie Abbott, secretary-treasurer ; and Carol Spruce, Sponsor. Under the l eadership of these splendid officers and with the co-operation of the enti re class, the year i n B ethany-Peniel College has proved one of great benefit for the Freshman class of 1 933.

The entire school was saddened on February 7 by hearing that Mary Alice, the beauti ful little daughter o f Professor and M rs . Fred Floyd, had quietly slipped away to be with Jesus. As the child was only sick a short time, her death was a tragic surprise to the school. The students and faculty of Bethany-Peniel College extended their deepest Jove and tenderest sympathy to Professor and Mrs. Floyd, and their little son John, in the loss of their darling Mary Alice. Born June 3, 1 93 1 Died February 7, 1 933

THE VIOLI N DEPARTME NT Every great mUSICIan has his favorite instrument : Liszt, the piano ; Pagan­ nini, the violin ; and of the present day one could mention Toscannini and his 'cello ; Konssevitsky and the string bass-to name j ust a few. Any one o f these on being interviewed would say of course that his favorite is king of i nstruments, and would no doubt have much to say about nuance, shading, tone color, technical adaptation, and other like terms, embroidered with all the suitable adjectives at his command. Then whose word may we take ? Which oracle shall we follow ? The answer is obviously, Take your choice. In the ranks o f men who have achieved distinction i n other fields than that of music, but who nevertheless found a hobby in playing and composing for the violin, we find such names as Albert Einstein, Charles G . Dawes, Premier Musso­ lini, and Thomas Jefferson. No small part o f their eminence i s due to this musical activity. The concert violinist i s one of the most exacting of athletes. Constant train­ ing in the form of two to six hours' drill every day is necessary to keep the physical agil ity and finger strength which it requires. He is always contesting with himself to make each day's practice a strong link in the knowledge and ability which will make him a master. There is satisfaction in creating musi c which cannot be enjoyed by merely l i stening. It rests the exhausted mind, and replaces boredom with enthusiasm. It creates sel f-confidence and otherwise helps remedy an undesirable condition o f t h e mind. Parents and teachers are realizing the benefits of self expression by young people in this way. More will be done in the f uture. Family ensembles can take the place of the "talkies." String-quartet practice will have more appeal than the night automobile j oy r ide. Junior symphonies will make ideal Sunday afternoons ; and Americans will real ize that discipline with young people has suddenly become non-essential through the great medium of instrumental music as a means o f sel f -expression.

THE PIA NO DEPARTME NT A piano is the "shrine" of a home-the shrine of the most beauti ful art i n t h e world, before which great masters have written compositions which brought j oy to all mankind. The piano has a particular value because it employs all ten fingers and demands a kind of brain training that surpasses every study in school or college. I n playing note after note, thousands of them, one has to train one's muscles and mind to strike j ust the right key at j ust the right time. This drill translated into business is a great asset. There are many advantages to a course in musical training. M ental efficiency is increased, for one's mind is forced to think about four times as quickly as the ordinary man's. Music cultivates poise, that is, the ability to do, at command, what one wants onesel f to do. The qualities of concentration and quick thinking are also developed through the study o f the piano. A higher standard o f ethics and culture, with a higher spi ritual upli ft, are noticeably the result of music training. In addition to all this, the study of piano gives one a means of freeing one's mind from daily affairs. Realizing the possibilities in a musical education, Mrs.

K.

S. White, head o f

the piano department, has entered into her work with marked enthusiasm. The interest which she shows i n her work along with her charming personality is a never failing source of inspiration to her pupils. Those studying music are enj oying one o f the greatest o f human blessings, for truly, "Music study exalts li fe."

We are the 111usic-makers, A nd we a.re the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers, A nd sitting by desolate streams; World-losers and world-forsal�ers, O n whom the pale moon gleams : Yet we are the 1nm!erS and shakers Of the world forever, it seems.

THE VOICE DEPARTME NT The human voice is the oldest means of musical expression known. Primitive and uncivilized people have always expressed their emotions by certain vocal utter­ ances which are not unmusical.

Even today we find ourselves admiring works

o f art with prolonged "ahs" and "ohs" which acquire a definite pitch and are different from a spoken word.

This was probably the very beginning o f the art

of singing, which like the other arts, necessarily had to have a simple beginning. Songs were first transmitted solely from mouth to mouth throughout many generations and remained, because of this, very simple.

Any deviation from the

most rudimentary of melodic and rhythmic figures was quickly forgotten.

Until

notes were used, about the fourteenth century, the art song and more complicated types of song other than the folk tunes were not known. With the coming of composers with more a dvanced ideas in the development of the song and eventually with the advent of the oratorio and finally the opera, singing itself received more and more attention.

Singers took care in producing

clear tones and in the placement of them. Those who enjoyed it and who had the ability, found that a lifetime could be spent in the fascinating work of developing the instrument known as the human voice.

It was found that unbelievable technical skill was possible through practice,

not to mention the purity of tone which many attained. Even today in Bethany-Pe�iel College this passion to sing has been brought. Many serious students are expending hours every week pursuing a course which has brought never-failing satisfaction to music lovers through solos, quartets and glee clubs. Miss Naomi Davies vVisler is the medium through which these students are learning, and she sees her reward daily in the lives which are made happier and more j oyful either directly or indirectly through her instruction.

T a every man there openeth A way, and ways, a.n d a way; And some men cli111,b the high way, A nd some 1nen grope the low; A nd in between on the m£sty flats, The rest drift to and fro. But to every ma.n there openeth A high way and a low And every one decideth The way his soul shall go.

THE EXPRESSIO N DEPARTME NT The Expression Department offers to the special and regular college students an opportunity for thorough training in all types of publ i c speaking. Its aims are to help the student to real ize his powers and possibilities, develop his individuality, and train his voice and body to act in harmony with his mind. The department has been well represented this year under the leadership o f Miss Carol Spruce. The debates have created interest i n self-expression, and i n the study o f current probl ems, while numerous readings have been both enter­ taining and inspirational. The most exciting of the department activities was the Boys' Declamation Contest, held Saturday night, May 6. A great many worthwhile plays have been presented. Scenes from Shake­ speare-"R omeo and J uliet" and "Taming o f the Shrew"- were given at Delta Rho. The Christmas play was " They That Sit in Darkness. " " For He Had Great Possessions"-the story of the Rich Young Ruler, was presented at Easter time. Besides these we have enj oyed several modern comedies such as the "Right Answer" and " Evening Dress I ndispensable." The last maj or program o f the year was a ful l evening play given May 5 , "The Passing of the Third Floor B ack." Dost thou love Ii fe ? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff l i f e is made o f . Reading furnishes us only with the materials o f knowledge ; it that makes what we read ours.

COLLEGE M ALE QUARTET

Bobby Hicks, Carey Ca.mpbell, Lloyd Langford, Woodrow Langford

SUMMER TOURS OF THE TROUB ADOURS A ND M.f\.LE QUARTET The splendid success o f B ethany-Peniel Coll ege thi s year i s due partly to the summer tour of the two organizations, the Troubadours and the Male Quartet. They visited churches throughout the educational zone, securing Li fe S-avers for the support of the school. The Male Quartet, organ ized shortly be fore the close of school , was com­ posed of Bobby H i cks, first tenor, Carey Campbell, second tenor, Lloyd Langford, first bass, Dwight Yarborough, second bass. Dr. Bracken traveled with this quartet. During their tour, which lasted eight weeks, they were engaged in fi fty-five services and traveled seven thousand miles. They spent the greater part o f the time in Texas and Eastern Oklahoma and held a few services i n Louisiana and Kansas. The Troubadours, with the personnel o f S. H. Bundy, saxophoni st ; M arvin Cooper, trumpeti est, and Vergil Davis and James McGraw trombonists, l e ft Bethany in the early part o f the summer for a tour that lasted ten weeks. B . M . Hall, sponsoring the group, talked i n the interest o f the school at eighty different churches while the quartet furni shed the music. The trip included several weeks in the Oklahoma district, a brief stay at the General Assembly in Wichita, Kansas and a tour of Arkansas, Loui siana, and Texas. The quartets reported at the end 0 E the summer that their servi ces had been well announced and well attended, and that each member of the two parties felt a deeper appreciation for the school by having represented it.

THE B EL CA NTO GLEE CLUB One o f the most interesting organi zations on the campus o f Bethany-Peniel College is the Bel Canto Glee Club. The members of this glee club, selected from the men of the college, have displayed unusual talent and ability in every presenta­ tion that has been given. Under the leadership of the director, Miss Naomi D. Wisler, the glee club has made splendid progress this year. The glee club has gone to several churches within our district and has given programs which were enjoyed and appreciated by each audience. The first trip away from home was made when the gl ee club sang for the Eastern Oklahoma D istrict Assembly, which convened at Ada, Oklahoma. Owing to the excellent quality of their singing, many compliments were received by the members of the glee club. A few weeks after the trip to Ada, the glee club went to Oklahoma City and sang for the First Church of the Nazarene. The pastor and the members of the congregation expressed their appreciation for the good numbers which the glee club presented. The final trip was made when the glee club went to N orman, Oklahoma, and gave a program for the Nazarene Church of N orman. With the other churches, the members of the Nazarene Church at N orman were high in thei r praise of the Bel Canto Glee Club, for they felt that they had received a spiritual blessing from the Lord through the beauti ful songs which were sung. Although the glee club visited several churches, no presentation was more successful than the numbers which were given at the Nazarene Church at Bethany during the Di strict Assembly of Western Oklahoma. B oth the home church and Bethany-Peniel College were proud t o be represented by such an organization as the Bel Canto Glee Club. Bethany-Peniel College considers the glee club to be one of its greatest assets.

THE REVEILLE ECHO The REVEI LLE ECHO i s a b i-weekly paper publ i shed by the students o f Bethany- Peniel College. The Staff was nominated by t h e Student Council and elected by the student body . The Staff consists of Christine Spurlin and Lydia Wilke, Editors ; Mary N elma Camfield and Elmer Stahly, Associate Editors ; Mrs. Clyde N eWS0111, Typi st ; J ames McGraw, Athletic Edi tor ; Robert Harding and Charles Callaway, Circulat­ ing Managers ; Ruby Bates, Proo f R eader ; El izabeth Dobson, Evelyn Harding, L. D. Weigman, and Alan Smith, Reporters . " P eggy" di scusses society ; Evelyn gives the gossip uncler the title " Campus Chatter" ; L. D. says, " Laugh-A-While" ; whi l e Alan dwells on the beautiful�not girls�but music and dramat ics. Maurice Howard was added the last semester to tell "\Vho's \Vho i n B. P . c."

Let us take a peep i nto 1 950 A.D. and slip up to the attic. Here is an old ARROW dated 1 933. Look ! There i s a picture o f the Echo Staff ! Do you remember how those Editors used to chase back and forth across the campus begging for news ? Where is an old i ssue o f the Echo ? Oh, here are several in the bottom of the t runk. See how yellow and tattered they are. Here are the names o f Dr. Bracken and the /[ale Quartet. Wouldn't we enj oy hearing the q uartet sing again ? And j ust to hear Dr. Bracken speak once more. What's this ? "They call her Barbara Jo. She weighs eight pounds . " Ah, that's the pretty little black-eyed daughter of Professor and Mrs. Gish whom we used to surround every time she was near. Sylvia wrote that Barbara J 0 won first place i n the piano contest and that she was ready for college. How time flies ! By the way, here i s an announcement of Paul and Sylvia's wedding ! I suppose you have heard that Paul is the pastor at Bethany and that Sylvia is teaching ex­ pression now ? Look ! H ere i s a poem by Maurice Howard . I wasn ' t at all surprised last week when I read the compl imentary remarks the Bookman gave his works, "Cowboys, guns, guitars, dudes were much in evi dence" � oh, do you remember that clever program ? That was the t ime Lester Dunn sang his own composition, I have been told that he and Carey Campbell both sing many o f their own compositions in their Evangel istic meetings now. The sun is s inking i n the west and shadows flit across that little attic window until it is difficult to reacl. I suppose we must tuck all our souvenirs and relics back into this musty old t runk, but we can take our pl easant memories with us. Let us sit on the veranda and watch the stars come out whil e we talk of the " Good 01' days" � it has been such a l ong time since we last met !

ALP H A D ELTA RHO There are two sides to every question, the good side and the bad. My mother taught me when I was a wee tot to be always on the good side ; so when I came to Bethany, I j oined Alpha Delta R ho. As you probably already know by this time, f rom the noise and smoke o f battle you have been witnessing, Delta Rho Literary Society i s divided into two chapters called Alpha and Beta. There i s no neutral ground, and everyone i s a strong supporter o f one side or the other. I have never seen rivalry so keen and refreshing in every detail as the contests be­ tween these two chapters. So far, this good side I am speaking of has been trimming Beta in almost every contest, but every time they suffer defeat at our hands Beta tries harder to win, and they may make things more i nteresting i f Alpha keeps on winning a while longer. At the close of the year, when all the basketball, baseball, and tennis games have been played and the debating and declamation contests are all over, a count will be taken to determine the winner of the two chapters according to the total number of points in all these events made by each. The winner will receive a beauti ful loving cup. Maybe that cup is the reason for so much interest and spirit i n the contests, but I think it is the love o f battle and the desire to win that makes the loyal member of his side will ing to sacrifice al l his time, money, and energy to beat the other side. But to get back to the "good side," Alpha's sponsor i s that noble warrior and abl e instructor i n philosophy-Mr. Gish. Under his guidance and the leader­ ship of Mr. Langford and M r, Warkentin, our first and second semester presidents, respectively, we have been responsible for most of the ARROW subscriptions, most of the R eveille Echo subscriptions, and several hundred new volumes for our library. Our athletes have shown themselves superior to Beta on the basketball floor and on the track and field, ancl among our members are some of the most brilliant students in school.

BETA D ELTA RHO

The purpose of any literary society IS to develop literary talent and con­ fi dence in publ ic appearance. At the beginning of the year 1 932-33 with the increased enrollment, it was thought advisable to divide the Delta R ho Literary Society into two chapters in order to create more enthusiasm and gi ve more stu­ dents an opportunity to profit by it. Beta Delta Rho was the name assigned to one chapter, with M endell Taylor as temporary chairman. Elmer Stahly was later elected permanent leader for B eta. Beta has furni shed plenty o f excitement and competition 111 every contest of the year. Each week one society gives a program and the following week the second chapter takes its turn. At no time has Beta had to feel in ferior in the giving of its programs, for it bas almost unlimited energy and originality. In December it provided an entertainment for the Alpha society for selling the most subscriptions to the Revei lle Echo. Frank Rice is president o f the group for tbe second semester. He is a basket-ball enthusiast and has an abundance of "pep" for every activity. At the end of the year when the points are all added and the contests are over, Beta can give fi fteen " rahs" for a success ful year.

THE BIBLE CO NFERE NCE One o f the outstanding proj ects sponsored by Bethany-Peniel College this year was a Bible Conference conducted by Dr. J . B. Chapman. Ministers f rom several districts of the educational zone were present. The l ectures o f Dr. Chapman inspired his listeners to go forth and present the f undamental doctrines o f the B ible with greater enthusiasm. Dr. Chapman emphasized the necessity of having a vital experience of sanct i fication that mani­ fests itself in holy l iving if we are to stop the mouth of gainsayers. The fi rst obj ective was accompl i shed by an analytical presentation of the modern trends o f doctrinal i nterpretation. The subj ects discussed i n this category were the non-doctrinal tabernacle attitude, the current revival of ancient heresies, and the central thesis o f the Church o f the Nazarene-sanct i fi cation by faith. The second obj ective was attained by a care ful and detailed treatment of the ethics and propagation o f holiness. The foundation of the ethical lectures was centered around dangers and warnings to the sanctified. Every source o f possible danger that Dr. Chapman considered was followed by an exhortation to keep moral integrity, righteousness, and uprightness foremost. The lectures represented a pro found i nsight i nto spiritual truths. The scholarly presentation o f these truths inspired the l isteners to concentrate their efforts i n propagating the doctrine of holiness through a definite, positive, and lucid message ; and to direct their energies into achi eving a " holy life." I n fact, the con ference accomplished the obj ective o f its existence to such extent that the audience unanimously agreed to have a convention annually.

FEB RUARY REVIV AL Our February revival was conducted by Reverend J. W. S hort, the Di strict Superintendent o f Western Oklahoma. His spirit-filled l i f e and spirit- honored ministry resulted in the edifi cation of the saints, sanctification o f the bel i evers, and conversion o f the unsaved. He placed major emphasi s upon heart purity. A large group was definitely sanctified because he presented the doctrine of hol iness in a clear and forceful manner. In fact, all of his messages were vital, inspi ring and upbuilding. The spi ritual condition o f the church was greatly i mproved by the revival.

MI NIST ERIAL ASSOCIATIO N

There al-e no other act ivities on our campus that are more vital to the train­ ing of the soul-life than the activities o f the M inisterial Association and the Gospel Teams_ The purpose in founding the Ministerial Association was to give our young men and young women an opportunity to meet in an organization where the problems o f the minister are di scussed and also to add to the spiritual atmosphere of our school l i fe and aid in solving our problems in worship. In the Ministerial Association, the interests o f the young preacher have be­ come merged with those interests o f the school ; thus we have been able to Ii ft ourselves and also aid the school . We have not claimed t o have t h e solution to all o u r spiritual problems ; how­ ever, through our spiritual services we have been drawn nearer to the One who died for us. The M inisterial Association has had two aims which have been kept first in our planning : to help the school with its problems at home, and to aid in meeting the ever increasi ng call for help in our services. The second and vital place we have filled is that of aiding the minister to see his coming problems and thereby giving him an opportunity to prepare for his future work. No phase o f the public worship has been left undiscussed. 'vVe have had many wonderful papers and addresses by our faculty members and f rom students who are making a Ii fe study of the problems of the mi nister. The 1110st profound questions of our day have been brought be fore us and we feel as though our organization has been o f wonderful val ue t o o u r school Ii fe and to our preachers. May God bless the Association and may there come through it many in­ spi red lives yet to bless the world.

The gospel team meets each Thursday evening for a h a l f hour o f prayer and praise. This group, which has been organized for many years, has done much for the spiritual encouragement and development of the students. We believe that it is a necessary part of our education to develop our spirit­ ual, as well as our intellectual, life. I t has been the purpose of the gospel team to add to this development. It has made possible a spiritual refinement through association with Christian young people. The Young Ladies' Gospel Team has also encouraged leadership in Christian work which has brought forth f ruit i n many lives. Above these, it has been a n encouragement t o a l i f e o f devotion to God. Our desi re and prayer to God is expressed thus : A Charge to keep I h ave. A God to Glorify, A N ever-d),ing Soul to save, A n d fit it for the sky.

Arm me with jealous care As in thy sight to live ; A n d oh, Thy servant, Lord, prepare A strict account to give !

Frolll Youth to hoary age My calling to fulfill, 0 11, 11/a3' it all 11ly powers engage To do my Master's Will !

Help me to watch and pray A nd on Thyself rely, Assured, if I 111y trust betray, I shall forever die.

M E N'S GOSPEL TEAM

For the Young Men's Gospel Team, the past year has been one o f the most enj oyable and profitable since its organization. The Gospel Team is distinctly a religious organization composed of the young men of the student body. It meets every Thursday evening for thirty minutes of worship. In these regular meetings the young ministers preach, and the singers furnish the music. Every service is lively, enjoyable, profitable ; and most important of all, the Holy Spirit meets with us. The team has a larger number o f members this year than it has had for some time. The interest is high, and the services have been well attended. In addition to the weekly meetings, the Young M en's Gospel Team holds services in the surrounding churches. The pastors of the churches have enj oyed the gospel team on these various occasions, and the team has greatly enjoyed the blessing received through serving these churches. The Young M en's Gospel Team had three main objectives for this year : fi rst, winning souls for J esus Christ ; second, drawing closer to God themselves ; and, third, the advancement and spiritual uplifting of Bethany-Peniel College. With these three worthy aims, sought by young men with high i deals, noble ambitions, and strong determination, empowered by the Holy Spirit, the Young Men's Gospel Team can view the year's progress with satisfaction and thanks­ giving to our God.

DIE D EUTSCHE GESELLSCHAFT The German club was organized in the early part of the first semester with fi fteen charter members . The initial meeting mani fested an attitude o f enthusiasm for establishing an organization that would be profitable to the German students. The obj ective has been attained successfully. The German cl ub elected a group of competent officers, who are responsible for the achievements of the year. The officers are as follows : :Martha vVarkentin, presi dent ; Mendell Taylor, vice-president ; B onnie Moore, secretary ; and Miss Harms, sponsor. The club was unusually fortunate in having Miss Harms as advisor. Although this was her first year to teach in our foreign language department, she has proved to be a great asset in strengthening this phase of the college curriculum . All of her students mani fest a pro found appreciation for her Christian character and her ability as an instructor. A constitution was formulated and adopted this year instituti ng the German Club as one of the permanent organizations of the college.

LE CERCLE FRA NCAIS A conversation among several students last year gave birth to the French Club. It was organi zed, with Mr. Goodwi n as president, for the purpose of i m­ proving the student's vocabulary and conversational abi l ity i n French, to connect with his knowledge of the language a knowledge of the French people and their customs, and to arouse greater interest i n the French language. A meeting was cal led at the beginning of this school year and the following officers were elected : Margaret Armstrong, president ; Dora McQuay, vice-presi­ dent ; Paul Gresham, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Goodwi n i s our sponsor. We are especially fortunate in having Miss Harms as a regular attendant and contributor to our programs. Programs are gI ven twice a month with a different student taking charge of the program each time. Many interesting as well as educational programs have been given, and we feel it has been profitable to have attended them . There truly are great things ahead for the French Club.

OUR FALL REVIV AL The Bethany church was fortunate to engage R everend C. B . Fugett for a

revi val meeting in N ovember. As Reverend

M r.

Fugett is one of the outstanding

evangel ists in the Holiness movement today, we felt honored to have him as our evangel ist. H e had conducted a camp-meeting in Bethany some two years before, and it was indeed a privilege to have him with us again . T h e revival was in progress from

N oyember

6 t o 27 and proved to be one

of the greatest in the hi story of the Bethany Church . God came in mighty power. H undreds of people bowed at an altar of prayer and sought pardon, reclamation, or purity. It was a beauti ful sight to see earnest people, night after night, seeking the Lord in al l H i s fullness. Surely, we can say that God was in our midst, and H i s blessed presence permeated the atmosphere. We were made to feel that the day of revivals is not over. Our good pastor, Reverend

H.

B. MaCl-Ol-y, had his part in prepanng the

way for this gracious outpouring of the H oly Spirit. H e was faithful in giving out the messages of divine truth, and in placing emphasis on prayer and personal work. Consequently, he was inst rumental in getting the Church burdened for souls prior to the comi ng o f our evangelist. Brother Fugett came to us in the fullness o f the blessing and preached under the anointing o f the Spirit. We deeply appreciated his devoted l i f e of prayer and his faithful ministry among us.

Truly, he preached the gospel in its purity.

Mr. K. S. White, the director o f our church choir, and M rs. White, pianist, had charge o f the music during the revival . The Lord has blessed them in their work here, and by their sincere and earnest work during the meeting they did their part in making the revival a success. Another striking feature about the revival was the interest manifested by the Christian students. They did their part in bringing the unsaved students to Jesus. They worked i n and about the altar and through the congregation. Still another outstanding feature about this revival was the freedom o f God's children. The spirit o f liberty and freedom demonstrated made one think of those blessed scriptures, "Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" and "Thou anointest my head with oil ; my cup runneth over." The revival was in­ deed a great blessing to our local church and to all the Christi an people of B ethany.

DR. BRACKE N SAID I N CHAPEL: A fter a revival you must adjust yourself to new surroundings. We should continuously be reorganizing our lives around better purposes. The devil takes advantage of our tired bodies in accomplishing his victories. The man with soul-rest can be more efficient at his work. You can't afford to marry everybody you are sorry for. Where be'st thee going ? You are liable to arrive before you know it. The study of botany is much better when you are acquainted with the One who made nature. One definition of education is : Material which passes from the notebook of the teacher to the notebook of the student without passing through the head of either. There are problems enough in every task to defeat us. Some students become old before completing college. Y e must be born again and again and again . Some students turn off t h e steam and expect to float into harbor. An old man is a man ten years older than yoursel f . M a n ought n o t to g o alone until thirty, and woman, never. If there are critics of the apostle Paul, let them try to beat him. If we are to be effective as we should i n our preaching we 1/lust know the will o f God. Your activities are making for you a place. School days will follow you through life. We all rotate around centers o f desires. The soul o f wit sometimes is to know when and how and what to say.

D E B AT E CLUB The Debate Club, organized at the beginning o f the school year, has for its aIm the aiding of the members in becoming more proficient in the art of de· bating, more polished in platform abil i ty, and advanced in abi l ity to think clearly and logically. The club is composed of members of the student body f rom both chapters of Delta Rho.

It is divi ded i nto two groups-one group made up of members

f rom Alpha Delta R ho, and the other composed of members from Beta Delta Rho. The debates, which are held f rom time to time at the regular Delta Rho meetings, are between these two groups. The winn ing side receives points which count in the contest between the two chapters of Delta Rho. The questions for debate deal with subj ects of national interest. The club has sponsored several i nteresting and spirited debates this year, and is l ooking forward to a greater time next year. VOY I.E

SCHUB ERT MUSIC CLUB " I love music," is a phrase that has been constantly repeated by the mass o f people. A frequent variation o f this is " I love good music." Humanity is sincere in this reiteration of truth. Even the individual who cannot carry a tune or who plays no instrument experiences certain emotional reactions to the rhythm or melody of various types of music. A normal person does love music. I n the phrase " I love music" we find a basic principle which is capable of being developed into tremendous possibilities. Here is the key, as it were, to open a door to a kingdom wherein lies untold wealth. This expression shows us the acorn of the oak. I t is comparable to the undeveloped clay out o f which the artist makes a sculptural masterpiece. It is true that the development of rnusic appreciation is a matter of educa­ tion, like all other worthwhile accompl ishments. N evertheless, to neglect wilfully this branch of one's education, and even to speak critically or i n a ribald manner o f a fine singer, instrumental ist, or musical organization is found a popular pas­ time with many who please to call themselves educated. Of course, however, this is a young country. The i ndustrialism, the capital­ ism, and to some extent the general air of frivolity all tend to make artistic ex­ pression very slow in finding a place. Educators beli eve that rapid progress has been made, especially in recent years, toward the establishment of a people whose culture in fi ne arts will be their boast. To this end, a due recognition o f the worth o f music in individual l ives must be the cornerstone on which to build. Such is the purpose and pleasure of the Schubert Music Club in Bethany-Peniel College. ALAN S M ITH, President R UTH LANG, Vice-preside n t EVELYN HARDI NG, Secretary-treasurer

A CO-ED'S VIEW OF DORMITORY LIFE Dormitory Ii f e is an almost essential part o f a well-rounded college education. How the world around one receives him depends upon the way the i ndividual offers himsel f to that worl d. There is no better way f or one to make himself agreeable with people than to associate with them daily. The dormi tory offers close but not necessarily intimate contact with various types and personalities. No course could better qual i fy one for getting along with people than the daily three-hour courses i n the dining hall. In the vesper services each Tuesday eve­ ning the girls, through their prayers, singing, and testimonies, are drawn closer to each other and closer to God. The I ittle chats in the different rooms, the necessary co-operation in all the phases of dormitory l i f e-all these are immeasur­ able in value. In spite of all the benefits derived from these associations, dormitory l i f e i n Bethany-Peniel College, however, woul d not be what i t is i f i t were not for our matron, M rs. Norwood. There are mothers who may have a peculiar l ittle feeling in their hearts when their daughters come horne and tell of thei r wonderful school mother, Mother N orwood, but i t is noticeabl e that the girls who l ove their own mothers most also love Mother Norwood most . Our matron, however, is not j ust the girls' mother, but also the boys' , for every boy deep within his heart feels that she has a deep, personal interest in him. Through her sympathy and understanding Mother Norwood has succeeded in con verting the dormitory from a place to eat and sl eep into a real home.

QUOT ATIO NS FROM THE DI NI NG HALL BULLETI N Envy i s a sure i ndicati on of inferiority. N o one envies those beneath him. The surest way to get somewhere is to know where you are going. It is good to be gratified, but dangerous to be satisfied. Do I push, or do I ride and drag my feet ? There i s no time i n l i f e when books do not influence a man. Jesus never loses a battle but H e loses many a soldi er. N eglect of prayer makes prayer hard work. Be not si mply good but good for something. Take p1ins to say some words of appreciation to the one whose faithf ulness has been a help to you. Search thine own heart. Wbat paineth thee i n others, i n thysel f may be. H elp tl,ou thy brother's boat across, and lo-thine own has reached the shore. I will study God's word more faithfully, and try to ll1easure up to the truth I find. I will consi der thought ful opinions with which I do not agree. I will cultivate a cheed ulness that will stand the test of hardship. The beginning with God i s a promise o f a happy ending. The load becomes l ight when i t i s cheerfully borne.

ATHLETICS I N COLLEGE

\!\That is the value o f athletics in college ? This question has been the subj ect of much discussion in recent years. There are tbose who say that it is a necessary part of college Ii fe, while the opposing group would say that it is unnecessary and a great loss of time to those taking part. B e fore coming to a final decision as to the value of athletics, there are several things to be considered : First, the individual who is to participate in the exercises offered. He may take part for two reasons-either to gain the pleasure that is to be bad, or to strengthen and develop his body . Secondly, there are many who enj oy good, clean recreation because it helps to prevent and cure both mental and physical ills. This is accomplished by causing the individual to forget for the time his condition. In the third place, there are those who take part in athletic contests in an effort to gain glory for themselves. This is not the i deal to strive for in athletics, for it will tend to weaken the individual's character as well as his reputation. Then we can say with the masses that athletics do have a place i n college acti vities, not as an end in itself, but as a means to help develop greater manhood and womanhood. Our

Aim :To build up and maintain

111

Bethany-Peniel College a high standard of

athletics which will be i n keeping with our religious ideals.

FRESHM E N - CHAMPIO NS The Freshman basketball team was victorious i n the class contest over the other teams in the college conference. They played the game well, winning all the games played i n the conference. The high school was the only team to boast of a victory over them. The Freshman team was slow in becoming organized, owing to the fact that the members of the team had not played together be f ore. It was not long, howevel-, until they reached their stride. Then things began to happen . They took each opponent as it came and defeated each decisively. The playing o f several members o f the team was outstanding. Lester Dunn at forward convinced his opponents that he was an excellent basket shot when in a favorable position. Paul H errell and Woodrow Langford at guard and Oliver N ewsom at center played the game well . The playing o f these outstanding men, together with the fine co-operation and team work of the rest of the team, demonstrated why the Freshmen of 1 932-33 were champions. Our hats are off to the champions ! May they be as fortunate as the Fresh­ men winners of 1 931 in that they again win the championship in their Sophomore year.

GIRLS' B ASKET B ALL The girls have shown keen i nterest in basketball this year, and have played some very good games . The high school and college played some close games, but those arousing the greatest interest were played between the Alpha and Beta chapters of Delta Rho. B ot h teams have done good work with H ilda Lee Oyler as Alpha captain, Alberta Patterson B eta captain, and M ildred Walton coach. The first girls' game between the chapters went to Alpha by a wiele margin . . The second was tight, but went to B eta. The last game was the most interesting and exciting. Every time a goal was made, the spectators hugged each other and howled l ike demons . The referee was forced to remind them to keep off the court, so high did the enthusiasm run. When the whistle blew for the game, the score stood 5 - 5 . My, what a tense moment ! I n order to work off the tie an extra five m inutes was given. Amid shouts and yells, the game ended with Alpha in the lead earning the fifty points toward the loving cup.

T E N NIS Tennis i s one o f the f avorite sports o f any col­ lege or university. I t i s fascinating and charming. I t develops physical poise as well as increasing the player's abi l ity to act quick­ ly. It also helps the player to de velop his ability to think. Tenn is is one of the maj or sports o f B ethany­ Peniel College. It is so al­ ll:ring that the maj ority o f the students either play the game or are interested spec­ tators. The fall tennis tourna­ � ment of Bethany - Peniel College was quite interest­ �... ...' ing. The tournament was held too late to play the doubles. N evertheless, the singles were all that could be expected . As i t i s t h e custom, the outstanding players were seeded and placed in sepa­ rate brackets. The players entered the tournament with vigor and enthusiasm. Every match was interesting, but there was one unlooked- for upset . Byron LeJeune, the lac! from Louisiana, proved that he could play tennis as well as run the mile i n record time, when he downed P. P. Herrel l, who was PAUL B R A N DYBERRY, champion thought to be one of the tournament favorites. I n the semi-final round, Harris Creech played Paul Brandyberry, and James McGraw opposed S . H . B undy. These matches were thrillers from beginning to end. J ames McGraw and H arris Creech played excellent games but were unable to match the experience and consistency o f their opponents. What a contest the l1 nals promised to be ! Though the year before, B undy defeated Brandyberry by a close margi n, this was a new day in the career o f Brandyberry, who was seeking to avenge h i s previ ous de feat. Play began with keen interest coming from the supporters o f each player. Each game was hotly contested, but the play that B randyberry had engaged in during the summer vaca­ tion soon began to have its effects. B randyberry, with his well-placed shots and consistent playing, won the tournament and the title of tennis champion o f Bethany-Peniel College.

B ASEB ALL The word "baseball" seems to thrill one group who are lovers o f the game, while it sends others into a frenzy, thinking o f the times they will have to face the approachi ng ball and blink at it as it whizzes by them at the plate. What a thrill to see nine men in action on the field, ranging f rom the one-hundred-twenty­ five-pound class to the monstrous size of that color ful figure f rom Arkansas,

VV.

T.

White, w i t h nine other men on sidelines waiting for their turn at t h e bat . This year a contest has been conducted all through the year between Alpha and Beta, the winners receiving a cup . Much enthusiasm has been shown, as can be seen by the scores 0f practice games, resulting in a victory for each team. The sides are evenly divided, and a great deal of excitement is in store for everyone. In accordance with a custom of the college, a school baseball team has been chosen by a cOll1mittee of three. This team is as follows : Robert Laeger

TRACK M EET When Ed. Howard shot the gun and started eight eager athletes down the S O-yard lane, Friday, Apri l 7, the lid was pried open and the big track day was in progress. Alpha men took the first three places in this event and in most o f t h e other dashes and piled u p a n earl y lead that Beta was unable to overcome, and after Byron LeJ eune won the mile late that evening for Al pha, the score was 99-52 with Beta on the l ittle end. In spite o f the wind and sand that made unpleasant what otherwise would have been a beauti ful day, there was a l arge crowd of i nterested spectators present all day. Lunch was served at noon by members of the ARROW Staff, and everyone who coul d afford to pay the sum of ten cents was served with lemonade. a chicken sandwich, and candy. A big surprise was in store for everyone when in the last {ew events Wood­ row Langford, Alpha dark horse, won himsel f four first places and high-point honors with 23 points. He set a new record for the standing high j ump at

-l-

feet,

1 0 i nches. Captain Curtis Smith of Alpha was a close second in indi vidual scoring with 20V2 points and three records broken . H i s time of 1 0.3 on the hundred-yard dash, 5 . 5 on the fi fty, and 23 seconds on the two-twenty were al l good for first places and new records, and his team composed o f George Alger, B uddy Camfield, Paul Herrel l , and Curtis Smith set a new record for the 440-yard relay with a time o f 44.5 seconds. In the girls' events, Chloe Jarvis helped Beta out by piling up I l l;! points, and M ildred Walton, also of Beta, scored 1 0 points. G enevieve Perry's time of 6.8

on the 50-yard dash was equal to the record set last year by Marilee Roberts.

Many a weary fan turned his sun-scorched face homeward late that evening with thoughts of a good square meal and few moments of shelter from the Okla­ homa sand that had filled the air and his ears all that day. I f an Alpha, he was no doubt well satisfied with the track meet and looking forward to the future with a brighter outlook on l i f e in general, and if he happened t o be a B eta supporter, he turned homeward with j ust a l ittle more determination to win the next contest.

WHAT DO YOU SAY ? \Vith Christ as your i deal, keep­ ing in the center of God' s will your main obj ective ; the winning of soul s for the Saviour your greatest ambi­ tion, and Heaven as your home sweet home, you are bound to succeed. V. H. LEWIS

" My heart is fixed," fixed in an unchanging Christ i n a changing world. PAUL RIDI NGS

Bethany- Peniel College, with its beloved l)t"esident, faculty, and stu­ dent body has influenced my l i f e both educationally and spi ritually. This year has been a great blessing to me. I thank the Lord for the privilege o f attending coll ege here for the past eight months. You will not make a mistake by coming to B ethany- Peniel College. B ERYL MORGAN

A new organization o f thi s year that has caused the school and town to stand back in wonder at its en­ thusiasm and accomplishments, is the Preacher Girls' Group. Sixteen i n number, t hey have really been active in spreading the gospel. As a resul t o f their activities, besides holding services i n numbers of churches and sending the gospel over the radio ; they have organized a regular work at t hree places near . Bethany and have seen souls find God in their services. PREACHER GIRLS' GROUP

When the outlook is bad, try the uplook. RAYMOND M CCLUNG He who bears God's message sees no one, hears no one, knows no one save Him, only. Hard places, easy j obs, home, f ri endship, shrinkings of the flesh, appreciation, reproach, misrepresentation, weakness, honor, and love itsel f are unheeded, and stay him not. " My eyes see only the end of the way ; I bear the message of God . " M ARGARET J ETER

Among the many things I have encountered for these four years that liave made me frown and sweat, are the many things that haven't happened yet. So as I now stand upon the banks o f the great ocean of learning and try to fathom its deepest mysteries, I am made to cry as one of old, "When my soul i s overwhelmed, lead me to the Rock that is higher than 1 . " W. T . W HITE

A fter four years of depression, we are still hopefu1. Years hence, when the present problems are for­ gotten, read through these pages, and tell yoursel f again that the most precious and valuable possessions i n t h e world are intangible and i mma­ terial. D. R. GISH
