The h istory of Oklahoma has been u nparalleled by a n y other state with respect to pure glamour and romantic adventure . This has been true from the covered wagan days ta those of the modern ci ty, the advancement being both rapid and miraculous. Courageous hearts, pro­ gressive th i n k i ng, and state-wide cooperation have compelled American society to recogn i ze the vast contr i b u tions that Oklahoma h as made for the good of civilization. The youth of Oklahoma hove always been an integral part of i ts state. Youth's destiny has been bound w i th that of t h i s state to a n u n usual degree because O k l a homa i tself is young. Oklahoma's educa­ tional u n i ts h ave been a s one with that of their state in their ideals and aspi rati on s. This is because of the forward ou tlook of the young people who represent the state of Oklahoma. W h ile Oklahoma has advanced to the i mportance crf one of the leading progressive states, Bethany- Peniel College has also advanced to the gratifying pos i tion of an educati nal u n i t of l i ke i mportance . I n f a i th fully portrayi n g ometh ing of the progress of Betha -Pe n i el College as one of the leadi �g colleges of Oklahoma, the Arro hopes to make i ts readers r alize someth i ng of the indomi table pirit of m a n i n h i s heroic effort to achieve. This has always been true in every civili zed society which recogni zes i ts h i ghest duty to God and man.

He who would reach the goal of success in life­

W ill lay a broad foundation in preparation. He will stand the test of apprenticeship. He will learn how to push his work to the ultimate limit. He will appreciate people and will learn how to make friends of them. He must first learn how to think. (This will call for open-mindedness on the one hand-the acceptance of evi­ dence on the other.) He must be honorable in all matters of finance. He must reverence God and religion. -A. K. Bracken

BUSINESS MANAGER B. M.

H A L L, A. B.

The fundamental basis for a successful year in the business office lies III

the cooperation received from the student-body in attempting to make

financial arrangements for their college education.

As long as they are

business like and prompt, the business office can make satisfactory arrange­ ments with the majority of the students.

This year the students have at­

tended faithfully to meeting their obligations. It has been the policy of this administration to pay capital as well as current debts as each school year progresses.

In a degree this has been

accomplished even though the load has been exceptionally heavy because of the building program. Progress is being made. Next semester we are expecting an increased

enrollment.

Greater

facilities for taking care of more students make this possible. Three parties, including two vocal and one instrumental quartet, will tour the greater part of the zone this summer. The Nazarene church is rapidly coming to the point where it is essential that it train its own ministry and laymen.

We feel that our relationship

with accreditment agencies, the building of Bud Robinson Hall, and the additions to the faculty have made Bethany-Peniel College adequately representative of what a denolll.inational college should be. B. M. HALL

In Bethany- Pen i e l Col lege this mechan i sm is identified in the Board of Regents. T h i s g roup of men, composed of m i n isters a n d laymen from the school zone, holds i ts session on the first Tuesday in February each year. It i s a se l f-perpetuating board. Members are nom i na ted and e l ected by the various assembl ies of the d i stri c ts which consti tute the school zone. The card i n a l duty of the board is to supervise in a general way the po l i c i es of the school. Al so, it frequently acts on matters that perta i n to re l i g ious educo tion and the financi a l status of the i nsti tution, as we l l as to e lect the president, busi ness man ager, and facu l ty of the schoo l . Through the h i story of the coll ege, the c l osest cooperation has existed between the board and school officia l s . The few men who are cha rter members of the group ore now watc h i n g w i th amazement the stri k ­ i n g progress and the we l l - rounded g rowth t h a t Bethany- Pen i e l Co l l ege has exhibi ted d u r i n g the l a st decade.

struction progressed rapi d l y under the competent supervision of B. M. H a l l , busi ness ma nager, o n d on September

12, 1936, this b u i l d i ng was occupied

by the women students of Betha n y - Pen i e l Col l ege.

The structure consists

of fifty-four raoms in addi tion to guest rooms, m a tron's suite, pa r lors, d i n i n g room, a n d ki tchen.

The bu i l d i ng i s modern, prov i d i n g a place that i s con足

ducive to enjoyable l iving i n every way.

It has been christened "Bud Robinson

Ha l l " for U n c l e Buddy Robinson, and is known by that name throughout the school connection.

Bud Robi nson Ha l l , being erected, had to be p a i d for.

At the last meeting of the Board of Regents, a p l a n to accompl i sh thi s was submi tted and passed and, si nce then, hos been put i n to operation.

Uncle

Buddy Robinson, for whom the bu i l d i n g w a s n a m ed , consented t o g i ve the school approx i mately three mon ths of his t i m e in an effort to raise funds to remove the i n debtedness that was i ncu rred by the construction of the bu i l d 足 ing. The p l a n provides for the purchasing o f si lver certificates o f i nvestment va l ued a t

$12.00 each, and gold certificates val ued a t $25.00 each, by the

consti tuency of the school terr i tory. The payments on these certifi cates are made a t monthly i nterva ls, and a re to be paid in f u l l within a period of twelve months. A n u mber of tours have been made by school officials accom 足 panied by U n c l e Buddy i n a campa ign to d istribute the certifica tes.

These

representa tives have been successful. At the time of the writing of this a rticle (March 26), approx i m a te l y fourteen thousand dol l ars have been subscribed to the school through the gold and si lver certificates.

The financ i a l d r i ve

H a l l , business manager, a n d si nce the e n t i re s u m m e r o f t h i s yea r i s t o b e devoted t o the i n terest o f student enrolment, i t i s bel ieved that the year

1937-38 w i l l show a ma rked advance a t this poi n t. Faculty One of the m a i n thi ngs that has contributed to the success of the col 足 lege this year has been the facu l ty. The facu l ty consists of a g roup of men and women who a re well b a l anced i n the i r outloo k on l i fe .

This group is

to be highly commended upon the i r educa tion a l achievements, but more than this each of them has a relig ious philosophy that is in harmony w i th every idea l of the school , and a phi losophy that is conducive to the best l i fe . Per足 hops no hi gher tribute can be paid to the facu l ty than to say that they have served nobly, many ti mes at the cost of self -sacrifice, for the sa ke of Christian educa tion .

Accreditment Down through the years, the facu l ty has been an outsta n d i n g e l e ment in the securing of recogn i tion of the college w i th regard to accreditmet. The subject of accredi tment is one that is of deep i n terest not o n l y to the col 足 l ege group, but to the enti re school con necti on .

Dr. B racken has pointed

out seve ral pert i nent facts concern i ng this subject. When a col lege is spoken of as bei n g accredited, he states, i t is often felt that the problems of the students, with regard to the recog n i tion of the i r work, a re solved.

problems, however, are many ti mes more i n tricately i nvolved than one reali zes. The chief reason for th i s is that there a re so many d i fferent and varied a c 足 cred i t i n g agenci es. I t i s a l most u n iversal that the states have two accredi t i ng agencies-the state boa rd of education and the state un i versi ty. Sametimes a group of u n i versi t i es comb i n e to form u l a te standa rds that a p p l y l i ke to members of the g roup, and then some universities function i ndependently o f a l l accred i t i n g agenc ies and s e t u p the i r own standards. More than th i s, there are to be found l a rger reg iona l accred i t i n g agencies such as the N orth Centra l Assoc i a tion and the Assoc i a t i o n of American Co l l eges.

A l l of th i s g i ves evi 足

dence to the fact that accredi ted. relatio ns a re not worked out to the poi n t o f perfect i on even i n the best col leges and universi ties.

The relationship o f

Betha ny-Pe n i e l Co l l ege to these accredi ting agenci es, however, i s the th i ng tha t is of supreme i n terest to us.

The col l ege has for several years been

accredi ted to the state boards of edu cation and the state u n i ve rs i ties of both Texas and O k l ahoma, and has been g i ven a "B" rating w i th the U n iversi ty of I l l inois.

The co l l ege was e l ected to full

membersh i p i n the Assoc i a tion o f

American Col leges a t i ts recent m e e t i n g i n Wash i n g ton, D. C.

Th i s recog足

nition is the ou tstanding ach ievement that the co l l ege has accomp l i shed in th i s f i eld. In c l osi ng a di scuss i on on the various phases of the co l l ege, it is pe rti 足 nent to say that i t is the ult i m a te goal of the adm i n i stra t i on at present to reach the rea l i za tion of accredi tment wi th the N o rth Central Assoc i ation of Co l l eges. Such a n ach i evement is con fidently expected, in the not too distant future, for Bethany- Pen i e l Col lege.

Out where the world is in the making, Where fewer hearts in despair are aching, That's where the West begins ; Where there's more of singing and less of sighing, Where there's more of giving and less of buying, And a man makes friends without half tryingThat's where the West begins. -Arthur Chapman

Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong, The carpenter singing his as he measures plank or beam, *
