Sfzzffwzf Fellowship The Student Fellowship Connnission is dedi- cated to the promotion of good will and Christian friendship among students and college person- nel. lt plans social functions. sends expressions of cheer to the sick, and congratulates new par- ents. U The connnission is prohahly hest rememhered for its colossal socials. The word 'Ksocialh stirs in every student's mind memories of new couples, proverhial stags, last-minute shaves and liairdos, XVhZ1t'3I'C-YO!l-gtlillg-til-XVCZII' questions, overload- ed telephone wires, hring-a-hlanket signs, tasty snacks, superh relaxation, and Christian fellow- ship. It seems to he a part of ns to wish to as- sociate with others, to date and relax, so a social means a time of fellowship in which we forget lectures, hooks, and term papers and turn our attention rather to our huddies. dates, or the just plain enjoyment of everyone's company. A social indeed seems to relax ns from a hard week at the "salt minesn and prepare us for the next week of "mental strains." The only criticism of our socials seems to he that there aren't enough of them. As a matter of fact, these socials seem to live vividly in our minds and we rememher them I The Conunission. "The Same Old Story"-Anne and D1 "You need more mutter with a certain nostalgia. Scenes such as students walking out of dining hall without dessert after Harry's announcement of surprise open house, and the invasion of our dorms hy the "other half" recur to us often. The Thanksgiving social with its moonlight hayride, Heatwole's hig harn, hay hales. an evening of Poe, Laurais melancholy story, l5eachy's "nevermore,,' sloppy joes, "Deck the halls with houghs ot' holly," and the long ride home will someday furnish us with a story for our grandchildren. Certainly NI. T. Brack- hill's capahle rendition of The Christmas Carol interspersed with l3eachy's solos, and carols sung hy a group of snowy carolers will make the Christmas social last for many Christxnases. Then, too, the short termers will recall the get-acquainted social with its most unusual glasses, higgest wrist, smallest lady, nam? list, word game, and Boys devotional meditations. The inter-semester tatfy pull was truly a sticky affair and the criticism slips revealed to us how We appear to others. Yes, the year has hroughi forth a multitude of excellent socials anil an enormous quantity of fellowship. 1953-51 was tops! -join: KIIALL. ll.

R8lZLg7l.Oll,Si Lzj? XVhutI Coming to chapel alreucly? Oh. thats right, this is Friday morning, isnt it. and Friday Nlorning Devotions hegin earlier than the regu- Iur chapel periods. I wonder what the program is about this morning. Lust week the foreign stu- dents gave the progrann. Horst Clerlueli told us why he chose to attend eollege at IC.NI.C. Itoko gave us her personal testimony as to why she he- eume tl Christian. Then Taizo took us on 21 short. interesting trip to japan. und Isszi hrought to us the needs of the Nloslem world. Another progrzun that I eleurly remeniher was when Brother Daniel Smucker spoke on Mfhe Urgeney of the IIonr" in Nlission Prayer Xleet- ing. IIe hrought ns Iziee to face with the great need for evangelism. and asked us the question. "Now what will you do?" I ox'erhezn'd one girl say, "Hy passion for lost souls is greater sinee this meeting. I must spend more time in prayer for this great need." You might think that sinee this is ti college, lew ehildren will he found here. hut at Christmas time the children of the Congregation gave part ol' the young peopleis program .... Oh. while I was reminiscing till Imeealme quiet. Itis time lor the program to hegin .... livery one of those short termers that spoke this morning mentioned Iuixing grown so much in their Christian IIX't'SIJyII1lX'IIIQ eome to If.NI.C. I think the regular students eould have suid that they too limit- grown heeause of their fellowship with the Special Bihle Termers these six weeks. You know. I just han e to stop and think ol' all the work that this eommission must do to put out sueh interesting programs for the students to enjoy. -ltosALuc NVYs1-3 Iiiilm Xloruing llexulion nugi un Ie.uuie I nous Ilia Comuns ion Irnul L Isla Iuiluetnes Iinnu Xluognlf' lu-rig' 3 4 A - f -

The aim of the Service Promotion Commission is to lead all students into an active participation in Christian service. The work of this commis- sion lays a foundation on which the other com- missions can work. Committees include College and lligh School Membership, Music, Employ- ment, and Property. The work of these various committees may seem mundane and uninteresting, nevertheless, these activities are essential to the service pro- gram of the Y. Membership committees contact each new stu- dent at the beginning of the year in the interest of the Y. Through questionnaires they discover the special interests and aptitudes of students in order that they might be used efliiciently. The membership committee tries to place each stu- dent in some form of Christian service. The Music Committee promotes the organiza- tion of small singing groups for Christian service. These groups are then made available to other committees for street meetings, Cospcl teams, cottage meetings, jail services, or any activity needing special music. The Music Committee also supplies special music groups to local churches and missions that request them. The Employment Committee attempts to find work for students who desire it. The committee takes calls from near-by businesses and individu- als who want workers and supplies them from the student body. Many students appreciate this service. The Property Committee is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the property of the Y. The members of this committee take care of the loud-speaking equipment, wash the Y cars and keep them serviced. and give other material as- sistance. -C. RICHARD KHALL Service Promotion 86
