We live in the present serving God in
Whatever tasks We find to do. 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.

From the commonplace to the romance behind the ordinary things, from earth to the
stars! 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
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
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.
Iohn R. Mumaw, Acting President

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?

From Oklahoma to New Yo-rk and from Canada to Virginia rushed the Forty-niners
to the halls of E.M.C. 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
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'

Of the twenty-one College Iuniors, thirteen were
members of the Freshman Class of 1946-47. The
eight additional members have joined us .since then.
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

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

We felt a bit timid and bashful as we entered the
halls of We were among the many Freshmen
who had come for Freshman Days. 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.

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."

We have crossed the seag the ocean lies ahead.
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. SAIL ON!

the Sophomores will never forget. With lots of old

fully decorated with corn shocks and pumpkins and

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
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

"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.

To the members of the Young People's Christian Association:
What potentials the name of this student activity suggests! It is first the Young
People's. 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!
I. Otis Yoder, Assistant Director
-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.

new students are suibject. Accordingly on one of the first evenings -of the year, the students
are inoculated with clean Christian fun and fellowship.
S d. 'n can beco-me very bo-resome unless care is taken. The- best preventative for
tu yi g
"studyitis" is a social skating party, or hayride. After a good evening of relaxation we
are ready once again to do- our best in study.
By sponsoring trips to Natural Bridge, caverns., Massanutten Peak, and other places of
interest, the Commission stimulates appreciation for the Wonders of crea-tion.
' ' 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.
We are doing our best to provide for the social development of the student body by
these activities which afford fun., relaxation, and Christian fellowship.

Nestled among the mountains of Virginia lies
the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, with its patch-
work of fields and farm dwellings, its woodlands
and towns. 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.

Chicago- Avenue, Broad Street, and Ridgeway church-
es respectively. A religious survey is being made of
Harrisonburg to distribute Bibles in homes not having
any, to discover new homes for cottage meetings, and
to discover other spiritual needs. In the Chicago
Avenue area cottage meetings are held each Sunday.
Students also help in girls, club work, social service
story telling, and visitation. 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.

Today there are many unfortunate people of our land who Find themselves in some
sort of institution. 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.

Christianity is a religion of outreach. 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
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.

-in College Membership
-in High School Membership
The Service Promotion Commission aims to facil-
itate the work of the Association and lead all stu-
dents into active participation. 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-
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.

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.

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.

"S-ing and make melody in your heart to the Lordf' Echoing from the chapel every
Tuesday and Thursday evening can be heard the melodious strains of young women's
voices blending in praise and devotion to our Master.
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.

Men s Chorus
God created the fowls of the heavens," the birds sang and there was mus1c David
sang hymns of praise, and the redeemed shall sing a new song in glory MuSf1C through
the ages has been the universal language of emotion It alone can speak most eloquently
of the feelings that words cannot express pulsing in the human heart Of all attempts at
such expression none has yet surpassed the efforts of the masters of religious music inspired
by the strumming of God's spirit upon their inmost soul.
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. Only as we have
i 93' 9 MSL ll
grasped the depth of passion, the height of sublime ecstasy, and the breadth of feeling which
inspired every chord could we interpret rightly the majestic movements surging in the
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.

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-
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.

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."

The week has ended and Friday evening again
looms bright for all Armerians. Why? Were you
ever completely worn out? Did you seek for some-
thing soothing to the brain? You likely found it in
Room G at Eastern Mennonite College, where we, the
Armerians were holding our meeting.
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
"Oh, We are Armerians, we're happy to Say,
We're working and learning in school every day,
And yet it is of far greater concern
Not only for school but life we learn?

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
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.
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!
We, as members of the Mennonite Historical
Society can truthfully say we are proud Of if- There
are around twenty-five members. On the first
Thursday of each month we eagerly anticipate what
our meeting will bring forth. There is never 2
time we go away from a meeting empty or d15f1P'

showed slides of the early Anabaptists or the time
Brother Paul Martin told us why we have our CON'
fession of Faith. We truly enter our meetmgsfo

In October, Ianuary, or April, usually after a
week of tests, the college fellows put away their
books and put on their sweat shirts and overalls
and look to the Shenandoah or the Blue Ridge
Mountains. Even some of the faculty men lay
aside their degrees to sleep under the stars or rain
clouds and spend the day climbing to hidden water-
falls or mountain peakS-
The food is better cooked in the open spaces, the
stories are fresher told in a mountain atmosphere,

The College Highlanders
The weary old school truck braces itself with
grim determination whenever the Highland Lassies
take their Hing.
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

It was 6:15 on Thursday evening. The bell rang and the members of the Theosebian
Fellowship Society began to assemble in Room A. Iohn wasnit sure if he wo-uld go. 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"

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

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,

Five challenging orations were delivered on the evening of Feb-

What's the congestion in the main hall every Thursday morn-
ing, and where is everyone rushing? .No, the mail hasn't just come
in, but all the students are enthusiastic about getting their Weather
Vanes. 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.

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-
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
0 er goo things are in it too. Need I say more? Iust subscribe
to it and read it.

As the doors of E.M.C. shut behind you this spring a sense of
Comfort will drift into that somewhat empty space at your heart if
you have among your belongings a 1949 Shenandoah.
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.

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

Conrad Grebel and Menno Simons, in the lamentable dark age of the

Today, the Mennonite Publishing Housed supplies the Mennonite Church
with Christian Literature. Writers, editors, typesetters, pressmen-all play a

. 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.
