Dedication of a yearbook is not routine. Selecting one from many individuals who have contributed greatly to the arowth and development of Covenant College is not routine. And to find, in that search, one who has served both on the Board of Trustees and in the College Admin- istration is not routine. But, having served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees during five very important years in Covenant's growth and development before becoming President of Covenant College, Dr. Marion David Barnes has made our search easy. Dr. Barnes, a true scholar and gentleman, has established an intricate network of personal friends and admirers since he first assumed his presidential responsibilities. When wondering what unusual gift Dr. Barnes possesses in order to appeal so strongly to people, a student finds a simple answer: Dr. Barnes has an air of casualness and southern friendliness that seems to charm and relax even the tens- est freshman or the most dignified guest. Obviously, our Lord has endowed this man with admirable humility - making him approachable from any level, and has unique- ly embodied this in dignity - enabling him to strengthen and lead a struggling yet powerful college. His accent and gracious manner are due partly to his birth and childhood in Junction City, Arkansas, where he lived until graduation from high school. He launched his brilliant career in chemistry first at the University of Ar- kansas for his B. S. degree and then at Columbia Univer- sity for his M. A. and Ph. D. degrees. The fact that Dr. Barnes is of such high academic caliber and brilliance is kept, it would seem, carefully unasserted. His scholastic achievements and previous careers - Professor of Chem- istry at Wheaton College, research chemist with the Lion Oil Company in Eldorado, Arkansas, and inventor with fourteen patents at Monsanto Chemical Company in St. Louis - need scarcely be mentioned by Dr. Barnes, whose present achievements are proof enough. Obviously, his decision to leave his position as Director of Industrial Re- search for the Sulphur Institute in Washington, D. C., to accept the presidency of Covenant College shows that he has sought to let Christ have the preeminence. His presidency has included everything from counseling to working out with others a fantastic program of expan- sion, from college improvements to occasional menu im- provements, from traveling to various organizations for donations to receiving students in his home for Bible dis- cussions and refreshments, and from his position as an elder in the Reformed Presbyterian Church to his loyal support at basketball games. Dr. and Mrs. Barnes have added much to campus life this year simply by being so near at hand in their south- end, second-floor apartment in the Campus in the Clouds. Two of their five children are Covenant students - John, a junior, and David, a freshman. At home are Lois, Deb- orah, and Philip. When one, such as a Covenant student, finally realizes the background of our President - his research projects at universities in Europe, conferences at Georgia Tech and at the University of California, and his amazing ca- reer in chemistry - he suddenly becomes awed and amazed, possibly flattered. After all, he has been greeted warmly by Dr. Barnes every day and has considered him- selfa close friend through consultations. Regularly he has heard Dr. Barnes speak in chapel or give firm but helpful suggestions, asking the same from students. Thus, he real- izes what an amazing person Dr. Barnes truly is. Because of his interest in each student, his effective spiritual lead- ership, and his working program toward accreditation and expansion, we dedicate the I966 TARTAN to Dr. Marion David Barnes.

Our goings and camings take us through many doors, almost unnoticed. They may be harsh im- prisoning portals or the finely crafted panels of a gracious entry. Stoutly barred doors could mean an impreg- nable barrier in our way, or a haven of refuge within. A door ajar could be an invitation and a chal- lenge to explore beyond. A door flung wide is a greeting and a warm ac- ceptance inta fellowship. We of Tartan would re- count with you some of the goings and comings of i965-66, noting the doors closed behind, the exploration into new areas of experience and learning, and finally the acceptance into the Cov- enant family where the Christ who said, "l am the door," is preeminent.
