Bible umber of major down Although the number of freshman Bible majors was down to only 27 at the begin- ning of the year, Dr. B.J. Humble, pro- fessor of Bible and chairman of the Bible department, said the small number of ma- jors was probably a result of the fact that the Texas Equalization Grant was not available to Bible majors. Humble said that most freshmen were not aware of the Bible Equalization Grant, which was offered by the department along with other scholarships for Bible majors. Another change in the Bible department was the retirement of Dr. J.D. Thomas, professor of Bible. Thomas had served on the ACU Bible faculty since 1949 and was director of the annual Bible Lectureship for many years. He also served as head of the depart- ment from 1969 until 1979 and was the author of many books. A project of the Bible department was raising money for the construction of a new missions education facility. Dr. James Carley of Stillwater, Okla., was the committee chairman for a S500,000 drive that was part of a S2 million goal included in the Phase III Design for Development. The department, jointly with the com- munication department, offered a new graduate program called Religious Communication. It was a 36-hour inter-disciplinary degree which required 18 hours in biblical studies and 18 hours in communication course work, leading to a master of arts degree. The department also offered a prac- ticum for all Bible majors. It dealt with practical questions about Bible ministry that were not discussed in regular Bible classes and gave students a chance to meet other ministers and missionaries. Dr. Thomas Olbricht, Bible professor and dean of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, was one of 14 authors honored for contributions to a book, Rhetoric of Protest and Reform 1878-1898. The book received the 1981 Winans Wilchelns Award for distinguished scholarship in rhetoric and public address, which was given annually by the Speech Communication Association of America. Olbricht wrote chapter ll of the volume, Rhetoric in the Higher Criticism Controversy. Two other members of the Bible faculty, Dr. Carl Brecheen and Dr. Paul Faulkner, co-authors of Whatever happened to Mom, Dad, and the Kids, traveled in 86 cities teaching Marriage Enrichment Seminars. Humble and Thomas taught a Bible ex- tension program in Wichita Falls. The pro- gram offered semi-weekly classes for graduate credit. The courses included Restoration History, taught by Humble, and Contem- porary Religious Thought, taught by Thomas. Five member of the Bible faculty at- FRONT ROW - Neil Lightfoot, B.J.
