As We lift our eyes into the future We see higher sum- mits to climb and greater Works to perform. Now and then We stop to listen to the pleas- ant echoes of the past. The editors of The Shenandoahn have en- deavored to preserve for you echoes. As you labor in your area of service for Christ may this little volume bring to you echoes of hap- py days at Eastern Mennonite College.

This is the spirit Brother M. T. Brackbill has carried to his classes at E.M.C. for the past thirty years. Throughout this long period 'of service fthe longest of any member on the faculty except Brother I. L. Stauffer, who came a few months earlierj Brother Brackbill has seen the College grow from its early beginnings to its present status. He has been active in helping this development. Throughout the years he has taught in almost every depart- ment, although we always think of him first as an astronomer, then as head of the physics department. Student publications owe much t-o Brother Brackbillis interest and enthusiasm. Editor of "The Iournaln seven years before it was turned over to student editorship, he has now been its sponsor twelve years. He brought the "Weather Vane" into being and has been its sponsor through its nine years of publication. He is sponsor of "The Shenandoah." As a beloved faculty member, as spons-or of student publications, and as Adviser of the College Class of 1949, the Senior Classes dedicate this issue of "The Shenandoah" to Brother M. T. Brackbill.

The Acting President To the Graduating Class of 1949: This graduation marks the close of a significant period in your training. It indicates another crossroad in your life where you decide important issues. Every experience of this kind makes a new demand upon faith. I am happy to believe that you have approached this hour with confidence and with faith in God. To resolve the issues of life with satisfaction and purpose requires more than belief in God's existenceg it takes faith that has a vital bearing upon human experience. To make faith vital to experience means that your believing embodies the elements of trust, cf confidence, and of commitment. Faith sustains very personal relationship with God in which you have complete trust in His purpose for your lifeg you have perfect confidence in His providence as it affects your experienceg and you are fully yielded in commitment to His will in all things. Faith in God is to make our belief in Him the controlling interest of all our thoughts, the measure of all we say, and the ground of all we do-. VV ith such a faith God becomes the supreme reality of human life so that any activity apart from Him ist disappointing and worthless. If you want to find the deepest reality in faith you will have to surrender your will in cheerful submission to God. This requires humble obedience to His word and a sincere purpo.se to live in His will. It means that you have gladly accepted His plan of salvation and that you have ceased from your own labors. You have anchored your hope in Christ and you rest in the promise of His presence. My prayer for you all is that with deepening conviction you may follow the leading of the Holy Spiritg that with increasing desire you may seek to do the will of Christ and that with growing confidence you may have faith in God. Sincerely, Iohn R. Mumaw, Acting President E121 Dear mess The Iesu: Paul one t dem ness the for fror wm Loi Rex of the ,, :, , , .,,, sw- A - Y. ,. -, , .,.- ' , . ,,, ,hw up vm R- 1 Y , ,, - ' Wwf ' itil W- Emytlpnicnaolrlui W lhflwluvcappmaclfl llUl!lfIBlIl0!!lll1lllJtlllf lpnllnmzncxpcrimcclo bakthccltmmtsolmrt lllrtllllllllilllpwilllliodin ulavrpfrfvflflllllflllflffll 'yminmmmm11fUll0 ' ohll rllvlllll EMM nlllHi!lllVPP0lnuWd W will 9 ion lBFhnd.gIw' :gmrwcir ,hflwlitl mmcmil ws W' The Dean Dear Class of 1949: Your look is forward, hopeful of the future. Recognizing this, I am binding up my message with P'aul's Words to Timothy, "Endure hardness as a good soldier of Iesus Christi' The young Timothy was to become an excellent soldier under the greatest of generals, Iesus Christ. He was not alone, but was surrounded by many soldiers, no-tably the aged Paul, who couldl so triumpihantly reflect his past. "I have fought a good fight." While the enduring of hardness involves suffering, one Writer notes that "the phrase in the Greek ist 'a volume of tenderness and yearning confi- dence, of a father's claim to loyal imitation. 'Take up your share in the enduring of hard- ness. Take up my mantle .... come with me, come after me, b-e one with us all who war the good warfare. My own son in the faith, I crave .Qstrange though it seemj, to nerve me for my last crowning effort, the sight of your young heroism. The standard. that must fall from my failing hands you will grasp, will you not?' " The warfare of the Christian, continues to involve suffering. Perhaps no other simile would express quite as Well the necessity of endurance, courage, and fortitude. If the Lord tarries, new chapters are yet to be written to the Book of Martyrs. The visions of Revelation still hold indescribable suffering to be born by the faithful witnesses of Christ. Mantles of aged servants will be falling upon you. These warriors will crave the sight of your heroism to nerve them for the final conflict. Will you grasp their standards as they fall in combat? Sincerely, I Chester K.

We came from the plow and ther pulpit, from the schoo-lroom and the hospital, seeking not for gold that perishes, but for things far more valuable than gold. Frequently we gathered in the home of our sponsor or other places to spend an evening together in pleasant diversion storing up memories to be recalled and experiences to be relived. The time has now come to leave the halls of our Alma Mater. The hells of Commence- ment are pealing, "Come from the campus and your many associates. Come away to your place of service. Press forward with courage, for 'By Faith' you shall inherit the better things God has provided for youf' E261 Scniflfs ld P-U95 A, Dona Virgin IW' ll.

In co-operation with the Iunior College and Iunior College Bible students we elected Donald Iacobs, Pres., Paul T. Yoder, Vice Pres., Merna Brenneman, Sec., is ' Ruth Kurtz, Treas.5 and Iohn Ropp, Bus. Mgr. When Donald Iacobs discontinued school at the end of the first semester, Paul T. Yoder was unanimously elected 3 President, and Maynard Yoder was elected Vice Presi- dent. Under Bro-ther I. Otis Yoder's sponsorship our class meetings were well attended, interesting, and gave evidence of the spirit of co-operation typical of the class. In this spirit the class contributed an average of 5527.69 per member fa total of Si1,717j, towards the Z1?Vomen's Dormitory Fund in the Christmas vacati0I1 rive.

But the Iunior class, who was two years older than we, adopted us into their family. Under the leadership of our capable class adviser, Brother I. Otis Yoder, we spent a very pleasant year, socially and spiritually. We spent an enjoyable evening in Eshleman's Hall when Brother Yoder and his fam- ily royally entertained us. After an evening of fun and refreshments, we gathered for prayer circle. As Brother Yoder portrayed the story of Elijah and Elisha, we were challenged with this thought, "Strive to have a double portion of the Holy Spiritf, We are happy that God led us here this year. We are going forward into the unknown future in faith better prepared to serve a needy world. tm I 'I t Frrst Row I Brenneman L Good N Hockman H Snyder I Weaver, I. Beyler.

College Sophomores We are the folks who found our first year of college life at E.M.C. so worth while that we eagerly hastened back to the campus in September '48 to avail ourselves of the second year full of good things. We have not been disappointed! Through the friendly, eH5cient guidance of our adviser, Brother Daniel Lehman, we were soon ready to move forward as an organized class. Then came interesting class meetings, a most enjoyable evening in the home of Brother Lehman, the Sophomore Social, and other times of pleasant association. Although our interests and goals are so varied that we are scattered through the B.S.. B.R.E., A.B., and Th-B. departments of the College, yet, we have been so drawn together by our common highest interest that We have been able to experience wholesome, construc- tlve fellowship.

Walters College Freshmen Once upon a time there was a group of eager, in- dustrious people. They were searching for something -something so precious that they were willing to en- dure the m-ost trying situations to reach their goal. They were the '49ers' and they were searching for gold. Once upon a time there was a group of eager, in- dustrious College Freshmen. They were searching for something also-something so precious that they were willing to endure semester exams and a Freshman social to reach their goal. They were the '5Zers' and they were searching for knowledge. They soon made a valuable discovery, that knowl- edge is not gained by merely striking a certain source or vein to see it come gushing forth. Rather, it is gained by strenuous and systematic work-by small nuggetsg sometimes the particles are so extremely small they might be termed "gold-dust." l35l .. .SL ,, .,., ,, , .. s. ,.e- ,.. . - - ........- 12.L...-....... ..,ge-13.--,-i-..

Sometimes the sea was calm, there was just a slight spray as we skimmed over the deep blueness. Do- you remember the days- of diversion we spent in Washington? Do you recall the socials to which our motherly Miss Wenger treated us? Can you still feel your- self sitting under the array of lights while the photographer moved your head a fraction of an inch one Way or another? Sometimes the days were dark, the turbulent waves tossed high. Those were days when smooth sailing was only a memory. Those were nights in which we burned our midnight oil in order to cram for ourexams. But eventually the sea was smooth again and We sailed on. Yes, our four-year voyage has been a successful o-ne, but an ocean of opportunity lies ahead.

With lots of old acquaintances and many new ones, soon all of us were like old pals. Class rooms, X-hall, dining room, and College Shoppe have all added to the enjoyment of our school year. October 26 will always be remembered a.s a high light of the year because that was the evening of our Halloween Social. The dining room was very beauti- fully decorated with corn shocks and pumpkins and even an electric moon.

High School Freshmen Meet the brilliant Freshman class of 1949. You can see that we are brilliant for there are many of us on the hgonor roll. There are only thirty-three of us, but time will tell how outstanding we will be. Al- ready we have accomplished much by raising three hundred seventy-live dollars for the New Women's Dormitory. That was even more than the Sophomores did. We have many good times here at school. Besides studying mathematics, science, English, and music, we play basketball, volleyball, tennis, and many other games. Then too, we have prayer circles and religi011S meetings to- help us in our Christian lives. All these First Row Second R 1 Third Ro r ?,n-,,... M-. HHH lg 1 Rf 1 IK . .1 , I' 1,1 Sl ar...

"Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habita- tions: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes" Qlsa. 54:2j. This year is epochal in the history of the Young People's Christian Association of Eastern Mennonite College. The tremendously expanded facilities of our Alma Mater together with the increased enrollment of students required at complete revision of the organization of the Y.P.C.A. so that its growing potential of consecrated youth could be utilized to the utmost in fulfilling the Great Commission. Through the advice and counsel of a Director of Christian Service, through the co-ordinating activity of an executive com- mittee, through the promotional interest of seven commissioners, and through the inten- sihed efforts of thirty-two committees a more effective, more enduring, and greatly expanded witness is impacted upon the college itself and upon the surrounding communities. The Y.P.C.A., as an instrument in the hand of God, is consecrated to the task of enlist- ing the co-operation of all -Christian students in order to strengthen the spiritual life of the college, to promote gro-wth in Christian character, fellowship, and devotion to Iesus Christ and the extension of His church, to give an effective Gospel witnes.s in Harrisonburg and surro-unding communities, and to serve in whatever capacity possible the Mennonite church and her mission congregations. The challenge of a dying world going to Christless graves and the potentialities stored up in an enlarged student body demanded the lengthening of the cords and the increased strengthening of the stakes. f56l ,H 1 f' ,. ii gs X. -1' K !

Now what does that bring to mind? Life at its prime that needs no priming, only flowing, energy that needs no energizing, only direction, action that needs no activa- tion., only guiding, courage that needs. no encouraging, only tempering. Youth, the mention of it to a child sends him dreaming of the day when he shall achieve. Youth, the mention of it to a grandpa sends him reminiscing of the days when nothing was tooo hard. Youth, to the youth is at picture of himself standing astride a dying yesterday, while wrestling with a weakening today and grasping a challenging tomorrow by the chin whiskers. Then combine Young Pegop-le's with Christian and see the potency. All the surges and urges of youth Kchannelled into Christianity. Who stands- in the way? Let all the powers of youth be consecrated to Christianity and its Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit and the kingdo-m of this world .shall yet be rocked to its foundations. This is our generation. We must bring it to Christ! , Now add the last and see Young Peo-p+le's Christian Association. The picture is com- plete. It is not dissipation or diffusion, but association. Every Christian youth reaches out with one hand to Christ in consecration for compulsion from within, while with the other hand he reaches out to his fellow youth in association for repulsion without. Evil must be thrown back. United we stand, nay, united we march! Ours is the conqueror's crown through the Christ of Christianity! Sincerely, I. Otis Yoder, Assistant Director E571 Religious Life -in Mission Meetings The Religious Life Commission is composed of the four student program committees. Because of its large responsibility in meeting the public devotional needs of the students, it is the aim of the commiss-ion to varythe programs from week to- week, keep each pro- gram distinctive, and yet assure the students a fresh devotional experience. The Friday Morning Devotions program serves both day and dormitory students and is necessarily geared as mulch as possible to serve this diversely a-ged group. Early each Sunday morning the Mission Prayer Meeting folk gather to hear a discussion on some area of prayer or mission work and to pray for this work. Each Sunday evening the High School Bible'Meeting andthe Young People's Bible Meeting are held in their respective places. Through analogous, each of these last two assemblies is adapted to its own age group. ' The Commissioners, Iames R. Hess, first semester Paul Swarr, second semester E581 .--r-,,,.,..E,-w-An. --in I.

' ' t -f l Before Special Bible Term began, regular students wrote per.sonal letters o we come to expected Bible Term students. This bit of friendliness helped regular students to look forward to their arrival with pleasure.

The peop-le of the Valley are friendly and show true southern hospitality. But, as in most places, there are also- many who are not Chris- tians. There are towns like Elkton and Timber- ville where there is much sin and many neglected people. Yet, praise the Lord, it is in these very towns and rural communities that He has found and brought back to Himself some of His lost sheep. Through rural cottage meetings many peg- ple who do not attend church have heard the Gos- pel and some of these have accepted Christ as their Saviour. Souls have been saved, Christian workers have received new courage and visions. Rural evangelism offers to the students of E.M.C. opporttmities to serve their Lord and gain much valuable experience as an aid to future service. To God be the glory.

A number of conversions have been reported in the Ridgeway area through cottage meetings held there. Students help with other church work also. The Broad Street Church has had a number of conversions for which we praise the Lord. Students help in various church needs, especially cot- tage meetings and hospital visitation.

Many are there because of sin, financial reverses, ill health, or lack nf parental love and care. Our Y.P.C.A. works with -these folks to bring them comfort and true joy in Iesus Christ. The institutional work is operated through Committees: Prison, Almshouse, Convg- lescent Home, and Children's Home. Each Sunday afternoon and Wednesday evening a group goes to the Harrisonburg city jail and once a month to the prison labor camp at Iron Gate, Virginia. A number of men have accepted Christ at these prisons. Every Sunday afternoon a service is held at the 'County Almshouse. At the Childrens' ho-me Bible stories are told. and songs are sung with the children. Many folks at the Convalescent Home eargerly await our arrival each Sunday afternoon. These are rich experiences for us as Well as for them. Norman Hockman, Commissioner at The Chi1dren's Home E661 I M .1 X , " 'ETL-'. 'x , I, 4 , . "- ' ' ' , -,k, M Y V , K . . T...-f--+-.YV-.

The redemption and consequent way of life that Iesus brought to mankind are of universal character. In accord with the New Testa- ment spirit, the Y.P.C.A. has followed the policy of continually extending the witness of Christ into new areas, new in terms of geographical boundaries, and. in methods and types of work. The Extension Commission carries the responsibility of a pioneer unit. It is the advance representative of Y.P.C.A. service to the church and to the world. Functioning through five committees, this commission supervises several distinct types of evangelistic endeavors. Church and mission congregations in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ken- tuicky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Florida have utilized Gospel team service during the school year. U.S. Route 11 motorists and Rockingham County, Virginia, public bus commuters scan Gospel signs, ano-ther earmark of extension work. The city of Har- risonburg is visited monthly by "The Way," and tracts and other literature find their way from the hands of this commission into almost every work sponsored by the Association. Students are brought into close contact with mission needs and activity and with alumni members on front-line duty. A prayer ministry is encouraged by this mission information service. The most recent outreach has been made into the field of Iewish evangelism. Untouched areas still remain. The Extension Commission has itinerary evangelism as a future project. The Gospel witness by every means in the will of God must be carried to the uttermost parts. Richard C.

It also aims to pro- mote various kinds of service where a need arises. To afford you a little clearer view' of the program of the Commission I will give a general picture of the work carried on by the Committees which com- p-ose this Commission. The College Membership and High School Membership Committees have responsibilities of similar nature with the exception that the former deals with the 'College and the latter with the High School. Their duties are to accept new members into the Association, to aim to lead the unsaved to Christ, and to have all members in active partici- pation. Singing is an important part of any extension work. For this reason the Music Committee was organized to assist Y.P.C.A. Committees by provid- ing music personnel. They encourage and promote organization of quartets. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." The Employment Committee seeks to find employment for those desiring work. Ofttimes a positive testi- mony can be given while working which would be impossible to give in any other way. Lastly, there is the Property Committee. All Y.P.C.A. property is under the care of this Com- mittee. Keeping the cars in repair, Fixing flat tires, and taking care of the loud-speaking system, are a few of their duties. Even though the work of this Commission is of a different nature from that of the other Com- missions-yet we are all laborers together for one single cause-that of presenting Christ to the world.

Brenneman Mixed Chorus Music is more than a pleasure-it is a necessity"-Romain Rolland. Thatis why we always rushed to- the early 7:20 A.M. rehearsals twice a week. Undo-ubt- edly there was something about music that awakened us. It must be true as Schopenhauer said, "Music is a shower bath of the so-ulf' Obviously all eighty of us recognize the place for mus1c in a well-rounded life. Richard Wagner writes that "music unites mankind by ideal band." General Coleman Dupont: "There is not a greater harmonizing inHuence than music, particularly choral music." Thatis what makes chorus- singing so enjoyable. One's voice cannot be individualisticg it must melt and blend into the whole. As we sang together, we probably echoed the words of Mark Twain. "The music so delighted me, warmed me, moved me, stirred me, uplifted me, inspired me, that I was mad with enthu- siasm. My soul never had such a scouring out since I was born." What was ou four programs? Our ultimate aim w t as o sing "to the praise of His glory." The first pre- requisite for becoming a member of Mixed Cho ' r purpose of rehearsing three times a week throughout the school year for n . rus was a genuine Christian experience so that our interpretation of the words and music might not be superficial. Through the years to come, I'm sure we'll hear strains of music we sang together. E741 l t r I I pi r-F ii if V i, 1 . I ' 1 r 5' r..

I For almost an hour on Tuesday and Friday you may hear melodious strains of music J coming from the chapel. It is the Iunior Chorus composedl mostly of High School Sopho- II mores and Iuniors. These refreshing periods are a time for developing our talents. Throughout the year, under the leadership of Brother Earl Maust, we have been I thrilled as our voices blended in the singing of such compositions as "Childs: Iesusf' Our g favorite music is the cantata, "David the Shepherd Boy." We feel that the rendition o-f "David the Shepherd Boy" is a good climax for our yea+r's work. Our aim is not only beautiful chord production, but correct interpretation of words and music. We know that we must experience the mood expressed by our music if we would have our audience appreciate it. We of the Iunior Chorus have learned to value the beauty and dignity of simple hymns.

Our director, Brother I. Mark Stauffer, has a great appreciation of good music, a winning smile blended with determination, and a unique type of instruction which inspires each one of us to do our best. Each rehearsal refreshes our minds and spirits, We throw away the cares of the day and lift our hearts in song to the heavenly Father. We participated in a program during Special Bible Term, the following chorals from the early church period were sung: "Daughter Zion, Rejoicej' "Lead Us on, Light Which Shone," "Beside the Manger," "Thee Will I Love," "The Spacious Firmament on Highfs and "The Cause Is Thine, Lord Iesus Christf' We tried to preserve the richness, grandeur and simple beauty of these old melodies. The aim -of each member is to witness for our Lord through song, to deepen our love for Him and to increa.se our kno-wledge and enjoyment of good, choral music. With Christ as our Leader we have the guarantee of success. "How blest are they-who singf' li 76 i First Bow-P-5. Second Row Third Row-El.

To realize the heart message of the music, to find within the beautiful cho-rds the composers, inner compulsion has been our task as a Men's Chorus.

To convey the message, to inspire the heart, to strike a sympathetic response of senti- ment and conviction was the burden of our conductor. Music in its entire range of appeal must reveal andi remake the human soul. In the minor chords of dejection, sorrow, con- trition, or in the bold, majestic, thrilling notes of victory, glory, praise, we sought to- rep- resent man's entire relation to God. The periods of practice, themselves a prelude to a greater service, symbolized as an overture to the symphony of the hardening and energizing experiences of youth for the major task of manhood. The fellowship we have enjoyed in practice, the inspiration received from the message, and the satisfaction of contributing to the welfare of o-ur fellows' spirits have been manifold rewards. The privilege of participation in Men's Chorus has made a lifelong contribution to our lives. f77l First Row-H. Miller, D. Otto, M. Lehman, H. Mumaw, H. Weaver, R. Kurtz, E. Stoltzfus, B.

Smithsonians The infant years of E.M.C. were enriched by the leadership of o-utstanding Christian personalities. One of these noble servants of God who shared with our college an early, intimate association is Iacob B. Smith. Among the foremost of present-day Mennonite schol- ars, Brother Smith served as principal of Eastern Mennonite School, as it was then known, from 1913 to 1922. Although no longer a member of the E.M-C- administrative or teaching staff, Brother Smith has continued to serve the church at large by his labors ln Biblical research, especially in the field of New Testa- ment Greek. In our college, I. B. Smith and his spirit of CVCY searching for the deeper truths of God are exemplified abidingly by the literary society named in his honor, "Smithsonian," Accepting the philosophy of its chal- lenging motto, "Drink deep or taste not the Pieriall Spring," the veteran Smithsonian Literary continues in the consequent abundant life. t73l First Row Second ' 6 H Hertzler, G.

Philomatheans There is cofol, crisp autumn weather with bright sunny skies. While lack Frost is writing his signature in sparkling Hourishes arotmd us, the Phillies are leaving vivid traces too-: bright, spicy Word pictures, and golden-toned music. The north wind shouts commandingly. Birds obey and fly south. In his fury the north wind slings helpless dead leaves far and wideg the Phillies have debates. Blizzards roar, and the program is impromptu. Victims are swept Off their feet as they are caught in the storm. The south Wind comes on noiseless feet, looking looking for life which has long been dormant. Tiny buds awaken and smile serenely. Thus we discover hidden talents among our member.s. We are inspired to make our lives worth while, industriousg and all nature bursts forth in glorious harmony. The Phillies are "Training for Service." E301 t First Row l Second H D.

Since we find so much talent in our ranks it is easy to see just why we have such interestingly dif- ferent programs. Our motto is, "Not for school, but life we learn," so we exercise these talents to the best of our ability, fitting ourselves for our future vocation. The basketball Hoor is the scene of many a Phillie- Armerian battle. It is here that we learn self-control and sportsmanship.

Adelphians The Adelphian Literary Society has had an interest- ing time this year. Otlr sponsor, Earl Maust, has proved to be much appreciated by all the members. O-ne of our program high lights was a debate on the question, "Resolved that Virginia is a better SIMC than Ohio." Each speaker to-ld of the advantages of his state. The affirmative side won. I'm sure that E.M.C.'s location in Virginia had an effect on the judges' decision. Our Christmas program was also very different and exciting. It was presented quite skillfully by the mCm' bers taking part. As new oflicers take their places Ilm sure we Adelphians will continue to make our literafl' L more interesting than ever before. t82l f 5 I s e 1 , 1 s 1 'rs Astral I wish it were clear tonight. I feel the need of some inspiration to write this, b-ut the weather is against me. When I get fed up on people and things and want to get away from it all, I go hold a tryst with some of my best friends. Among these are Cygnus, Orion, Cassiopeia and a host of others. But my favorite is Sirius, the twinkly blue one. Yes, he's blue, but it's such a cheery blue that I forget my blues in a jiify. Where did I meet all these friends? I met them in Astral Society under the direction of Brother M. T. Brackbill. To be- come an Astralite, you must be in speaking terms with at least twelve of these friends. Our sponsor introduces them so interestingly and so- enthusias- tically, that you cannot but love them, and before Christmas you discover that you have eighty-five new friends or perhaps one hundred and fifty. And they never fail you-except when it's cloudy!

With careless abandon the co-llege girls toss aside that air of dignity which, ordinarily, they are ex- pected to carry with them, and as they pitch their blanket rolls on the truck throw to the winds every thought of lessons. Something indescribable gets into our blood as our bulging truck noses up the mountain to the camping ground. A made-to-order night would have a bahny south wind, whip-poor-will and a moon, although chicken corn soup needs no moonlight to aid its swift disappearance. Girls who need sleep haven't come along and as the moon dips behind the western rim of the mountain we often wish rather regretfully, "If only the High School girls could see us now!" nf, .- , II 85 J , .,-, ,., ...,..........a..g.....t.,.r..:....... ...,- , - .

Per lvaps lt was a waste of t1me. But thlnklng of the time he wasted in other ways he decided that he might as well go. The topic forpgroup discussio-n was, How to ascertain God's will for my life. Iohn was interested in this very topic. One by one the .students gave their personal testimony as to Go-d's definite leading in their lives. The interesting part of it was that no two testi- monies were alike as to the wav in which God leads. Was it a waste of time? Definitely no-t,' thanks to Bro. Lehman, our sponsor. "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light we have fellowship one with another" CI Iohn 1:75. The true purpose of the Deovenarian bociety is to draw us as Christians into a deeper walk with Christ th , so at we can truly have fellowship one with another and serve God more effectively. Other purposes of the society are to present church problems d l d an to ea us to recognize our responsibilities toward solvin these roblem Th l g p r s. en a so, there are opportunrtles to learn new methods by which we can give God our maximum services.

Once a month I beam and push my tables together for Scriblerus night. Of course I never vote for the reader, but I always silently endorse the choice. As he shuffles the contributions everyone watches to see where his or hers finally resides. Munching pineapple muH'ins and sipping tea-or whatever the evening's menu affords- they listen, laugh, fro-Wn, and look thoughtful. After each poem or -composition is read, they criticize. Such careful, thoro-ugh frankness! Suddenly the bell rings. D'arkness engulfs me, and a film of loneliness quietly settles over my beeing. I Wistfully long for another four Weeks when again I shall silently enjoy and applaud each poem and composition. The Debating Society was designed for the principal purpose of helping us sharpen our wits and streamline our presentation of ideas into a logical, convincing style. This aim is accomplished, in part at least, by having a deb-ate scheduled for each monthly meeting of the society. For this reason the society is divided into two- chapters, the Lincoln Chapter and the Douglas Chapter. Each chapter is headed by a chairman who chooses the members of his chapter who- are to participate in the monthly debate. These debates are judged by the sponsor of the society with the impartial assistance of a member of each of the rival chapters. The event of the year, to which all other debates lead, is the public debate at the end. 537' R t hM y Kraus, W First Row-R. Martin, R. Good, E. Kauffman, rvr. Derstine Second Row-N. Hege, P. Kniss, M. Kniss, H. Kraus, D. Otto The Short Story Contest Excitement? Yes! Anticipation? Yes! Thus the Short Story Contest drew nearer and nearer, at last the night of February 11 came. As usual the Short Story Contest, sponsored by the Public Literary Committee, was well attended. During the last minutes of suspense we were favored with "Dry Bones" by a menls quartet. Then the chairman of the judges' committee, Hubert Pellman, announced the winning story, "The Greatest Is Lovef' by Ruth Martin. Margaret Derstine won second prize for her story, "TO These Also." The Qratorrcal Contest Five challenging orations were delivered on the evening of Feb- ruary fourth. The two prize-winning orations, "Will You Dare to Be Christian?" by Harry Kraus, and "Black" by Darrel Otto, were both on the race problem. Nathan Hege's "A Greater Than Atoms Is Here" contrasted the po-wer of the Holy Spirit with carnal power. "The Other Side of Notnresistancev fthe positive Sidej was presented by Mark Kniss, and 4'The Menace of Mate- rialism" by Paul Kniss. ten , ph e008 , Wihihivhire iii hhee2,'f',Qrfh1- was gsillfyd sr Wwlhff Vanpfp Ea prer6f'0E' ' ip ble I0 We ppp 11113 .

Everyone looks forward to- this weekly newsy paper almost as eagerly as they do to a letter from home. Like a breeze which blows through halls and classrooms, the Weather Vane passes over the whole campus scattering items of interest to E.M.C. students. Since our family has become so large, we are unable to keep up with all our brothers and sisters, so the Weather Vane gives us information about our fellow students. Among the features of the Weather Vane which attract the most attention, "The Owl" and "Oswald" are outstanding. "The Owl" flies here and there on the campus and writes what he observes in a column of honest and ,sincere criticism which has proved to be helpful to all of us. If you donlt want all the other members of E.M.C. to know what you say be careful, for "Oswald', might be listening. Quite regularly there are Student Forums in which stu- dents give their opinions on questions of the day. Ten years have elapsed since the first Weather Vane has been printed, and the publication has stood the test of success through prosperity and depression. It owes its existence and success largely to Brother M. T. Brackbill's continuous efforts. We all appreciate our sponsor and his outstanding literary ability. A.

Editor The lournal There has been at divorce case here at E.M.C. this year. It has been duly and thoroughly aired in all the necessary places, and now the two involved have separated, I fear, forever. The case is not quite as bad as it may sound because the twfo parties are .still on speaking terms, and even work in the same office. The Eastern Mennonite College Iournal is now no longer connected with the Shenandoah. It is a separate individual and will still come to you ten times a year with all the oiiicial information from the college. Maybe we shouldn't say the two- publications have been divorced, but rather say that one little issue of the Iournal has just grown up and become of age. To be sure we wouldn't expect this full- grown child we call the Shenandoah to always run around with his daddy. Incidentally, do you read the Iournalf' If you donifi you surely are missing something. Each issue comes in a very attractive cover and is literally packed with well-edited worth- 3 while articles. There you can read the best productions of The English 'Composition class and can get in brief form some of the finest points made in the numerous meetings at E M C Also in thlel Iournal you get lots of news about alumni. Many t d 0 er goo things are in it too. Need I say more?

The Shenandoah is a synopsis of all the activities and personal- ities, experiences and adventures, work and play which you have known at this college in the Shenandoah Valley. Brother M. T. Brackbill, our sponsor, took the group pictures and gave us general oversight. The business managers, the pho-tog- rapher, and the writer of each article, as well as many others, merit your lasting gratitude. The Shenandoah is meant to preserve in your memory the breath of E.M.C., the light of her Christian service, the warmth of her Christian friendship, the fragrance of her Christian ideals. Your first meal in the dining hall, those talk-fests with your roommates, your favorite teachers, the soreials, the sports, the out- ings will all be recalled as you visit with your Shenandoah. And if these visits strengthen your aspirations for the future, we of the staif will be well satisfied. gg., I , A I -im- Mm' 1--.-.tr-13: ' usual!

Mmuieu in GZMJM The written Word and the Church program have always gone hand in hand. Paul, in prison, called for his books. It was here that he Wrote his immortal letters to the churches, letters which now form a considerable portion of the New Testament. 4 Conrad Grebel and Menno Simons, in the lamentable dark age of the Church, quickly made use of the Written page. Luther, with an ink pot at his elbow, translated the Bible into German. In fact every decade has found its Christian penmen. Scribes have copied papyrus upon papyrus, and papers upon papers. The printed word heritage which we have is nothing' less than astounding. Today, the Mennonite Publishing Housed supplies the Mennonite Church with Christian Literature. Writers, editors, typesetters, pressmen-all play a strangely unique part in the literature Held. More of these "Ministers in Working Clothes," as someone has called them, are needed. . We hope that you-you who are leaving school life to enter life's school- w1ll consider entering the literature distribution program of the Mennonite Church. You will be playing your part in saving a lost world for the Master. MENNONITE PUBLISHING HOUSE, SCOTTDALE, PA. 51101 .e.11.,...L-., .V , .Y ,I--,,,,,.L......f.,....,... . .,.-.,.,.-..,.,.,. --.....
