The lfort XYayne Bible Training School has its antecedent in a very humble work begun
at the Bethany llome at Bluffton, Ohio, forty years ago. Prompted by an implicit faith in Gods
XYord, a few godly people opened this home for the sick with the aim of directing them to the
Great Physician, and as a haven for Christian workers needing rest and recuperation. ln a few
years, however, God extended the scope of this vision, and it became the conviction that the work
of Bethany llome should be more than a ministry to the body. Its character accordingly began
to be that of a Bible school until. in 1895. God led to the opening of Bethany Institute.
After nine years the increased demand for liible training made the need for larger quarters
imperative. As a means for realizing an enlargement the Institute was put into the hands of
the Missionary Church Association, Steps were immediately taken: a site was purchased and
the present building erected in time to be used for the greater part of the second term of 190-1.
'l'he institution has since been known as the Fort XYayne Bible Training School,
Since this date there has been a remarkable growth. both in membership and curriculum.
'l'he enrollment increase has been from thirty-three students in 1904 to over one hundred in 1927.
As to its course of study, it ranks foremost with the institutions of its purpose throughout the
nation. It has always been characterized by an unsectarian spirit, its chief emphasis being placed
upon the fundamentals of Christian faith and practice. There are at present six denominations
on the school faculty, and twenty in the student body. While its aim has not been to emulate the
seminary in the type of education it gives, it needs make no apology for the men and women to
whom it has conferred diplomas. There are today hundreds serving as missionaries, pastors and
lay-workers, whose successful ministry attests the workableness of the training received at the
l"ort NYayne Bible Training Schnnl.

The Fort VVayne Bible Training School was founded and grew to be what it is in conse-
quence of a Scriptural vision and an active faith. With these generative qualities in evidence in
an increased degree at the present time, it may well be expected that a larger sphere of service
lies before it.
The vision of the Bible 'Training School's work is coextensive with the world's need of the
Gospel. No age could have offered it the opportunity for service that the present one affords.
From the standpoint of evangelism, it is challenged by many open doors. Religious tolerance.
freedom of speech and press, and a noticeable decrease in illiteracy are marked advantages.
contributing much to the acceleration of Gospel work. Moreover, modern means of travel make
it possible for workers which it trains to reach a parish of millions in only a few days. How
eagerly the martyrs of the centuries must look down upon our day, wondering what will be done
with such an opportunity! Surely the existence of a Bible Training School at such a time as this
is a providential provision.
In view of so great a challenge, the Bible Training School is striving to increase its efficiency
and capacity for training young people to serve. lts present building campaign is a practical move
in this direction. It is the conviction of those supporting this project that the Bible Training
School is a most effective evangelical agency. The prayers of its many friends are an invaluable
spiritualizing factor to the school and do much in keeping it true to its vision. May God reward
all who support it in this way. Its Work is essentially spiritual, and is therefore dependent upon
God's continued blessing if anything worth while is to be accomplished. Let us pray, not so
much that God will make it a great institution, but rather that He will use it in a large way to
accomplish His purpose.

REV. J. E. RAMSEYER, PRESIDENT
To the Clam 0fI9 6'
Too much emphasis cannot be placed on the reading of the XVord of God, and on the study
of prophecy and history, commandments and promises. doctrines and examples contained therein.
jesus says, "Search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have 'eternal life: and they are they
which testify of me."---Ino. 5 139. Again we read, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof. for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that
the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."-2 Tim. 3 :l6,l7.
In the same letter, the apostle exhorts, "Study to shew thyself approwd unto God, a Workman
that ne-edeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
However, let us never lose sight of the fact that salvation, from its initial stage and every
onward step to its highest degree, is a matter of divine revelation, for we read in Matt. 11:27.
"All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father!
neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son. and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal
him." Learning does not bring spiritual, understanding. but it enables us to convey more intelli-
gently to others what has been revealed to us by the Spirit of God.
Let us, therefore, apply our minds diligently to the study of Gods word. and always depend
on the Holy Spirit, whose mission it is to "enlighten us." to lead us "into all truth," and to' Fill
us "with all things in Him," and thus be enabled to perform our mission in whatever tield our
Work may be.
Yours in the Unfailing One,
I. E. RANISEYER.

"This Gospel preach in every land."

The halls of the B. T. in the fall of 1925, welcomed the advent of an eager
group of preparatory students, sixteen in number. During the first semester two
dropped out. but for the second term tive new students joined our group. This class
entered at once into the spirit and fellowship of the school.
The fall of 1926 brought a noble group of thirty-two Juniors, twenty of whom
were new students. XVe were made to feel at home and welcome by the rest of thc
student body, and soon added our zeal and fervor to the school life. In our junior
year we were mustered into the practical work conducted under the direction of the
School, and appreciated the privilege of working for the Lord. and of sharing with
others some of the blessings we were constantly receiving.
Toward the end of the school year the class organized that it might be a help to
the Seniors in the many duties which come during commencement week. The oflicers
elected were as follows: l'resident, Quinton Everest: Secretary, Margaret Ogden:
Treasurer, Clarence Zimmerman.
September of 1927 brought a joyful group of Seniors back to those walls made
sacred by the association of many blessed memories. After several weeks had passed
we held a class meeting and reelected the previous officers for their respective positions.
In this meeting it was decided to edit a yearbook-the Iirst one in the history of the
ll. T. S., and accordingly we elected a capable editorial staff. This staff immediately
set to work and soon had things organized and plans laid for etiicient work.
From the iirst we decided to have class prayer meetings on Tuesday night of each
week. These proved to be times of fellowship and spiritual blessing to each one and
were well attended throughout the year.
VVith the advent of the second semester we welcomed another member to our
group, which made our number total twenty-eight. Our days were well crowded, but
with the Lord's help, we satisfactorily completed the work before us, and at the end
received the award-our diplomas, In our class all graduated from the Bible Course
except Mrs. B. A. Martens and Miss Mildred Iiicher, who graduated from the Bible
VVe have been gathered from a wide territory of the United States and Canada
s-from Hoosierdom and the neighboring' states. as well as from the rugged north-
west. the far southwest, and the sunny south. Indeed, one of our number was born
in India. However, our spirits have blended in fellowship in a delightful way. and
splendid cooperation has been shown in the classg in fact, without this it would have
been impossible to accomplish anything.
The history of our class is hnishedg our student days are ended. XVe stand upon
the threshold of a new day. Some of our number have heard the Master's call to India,
some to Africa, others to South America, and still others to Palestine. Doors of
opportunity and service here at home have been opened to some of the group. XVher-
ever the Lord may lead, it is our prayer that each one shall obtain God's best, and
that we may live as true "Servants of Christ."

This is the tirst year that the Post Graduate course has been offered in the Bible
Training School. Three students entered for the complete work-Susie Guilf, Ezra
Meier, and Herbert Diller: while Lois Steinman. Helen Oyer. Chris Gerig, and
William Hygema enrolled for part of the classes. Dr. Beatrice Morton, who was
graduated from the Bible Music course in 1926. is a special graduate student. She has
now completed the regular Bible course and receives her diploma on commencement
Although the regular Post Graduate class is small in number. the course is prov-
ing of inestimable value to each member. One student said that if the training re-
ceived at the Bible Training School be compared to a shock of wheat. the Post Grad-
uate course is the cap sheaf. A line of studies has been selected that will be most
practical and beneficial in the homeland or in the foreign tield.
The small class has many advantages. Learners and teachers are drawn into
closer contact, and the student is more free to ask questions. Some heart-to-heart
discussions have been so interesting and so blessed that Mr. Hvgema has been heard
to exclailn, "Is that clock right? XVe'll have to dismiss and iinish the lesson next

zmior Clays History
As the autumn of 1927 approached, we, a group of twenty-nine young people,
having felt the need of a better and more thorough understanding of the XVord of
God, found ourselves led toward the Bible Training' School at Fort VVayne.
lVe were a motley group. presenting a variety of personalities and possibilities.
How to fully realize these possibilities. and how. by the help of God, to properly
prepare ourselves for them, have been our problems ever since we came here. XVe
are learning the solution, for He is daily teaching us invaluable lessons-some froln
books and some from experience.
His lVord is unfolding to us and holds for us a greater depth of meaning than
before. lVe have read His commission, "Go ye into all the worldf' we hear the cry
from every part of the earth, "Come over and help us." Now we are studying that
we may bring to the needy world the Christ who satisfies.
Life here has not been dull. 'l'o conform to the rules of an institution is not the
easiest thing: while we hope that no rules have been broken, we fear that some have
been badly bent. 'l'hen, too. to observe the eccentricities of others and one's own
peculiarities is a source of unending interest.
Nine of our number had taken the l'reparatory course the previous year. Since
the beginning of this year, six of our members have for various reasons found it
necessary to discontinue their studies: now we number twenty-three. The class offl-
cers are: Harvey L. Mitchell, President: Naomi Roth. Secretary: and jared Gerig.
XVe appreciate our instructors and fellow-students. who have been an inspiration
to us by their exemplary lives: and we earnestly desire that His Spirit may contin-
ually abide with them and make them a blessing lo others.

In the course of human events. the entrance into the llible Training School was
a door of opportunity for about ten young men and women who, for various reasons.
had been denied the privilege of a high school education. Here we found it possible
to obtain a Christian education, a necessity for men and women who have a vision of
the greater things of life.
The "l'reps." as we are called, came in wearing a coat of green. Humorous and
embarrassing were the scenes of the first few days. The subjects assigned were
English I, II, III. etc., but just what they were, no one knew. However. we were
courageous, and after consulting the schedule with books in arm. we started toward

"Pardon me." the search was continued until the rendezvous was found.
Nevertheless, we were a group with ambition and a vision. Any life that is a
success must have a goal, and any goal that is reached must be worked for. The onli
wav we can ever hope to hit the star of achievement is to put plenty of the powder ol
sincerity and integrity behind the bullet of ambition. The goal of our vision is tl
help lost humanity, and in so doing we shall find a richer. fuller life here and here-

XVho on earth does not aspire after greatness? XVho does not strive for excellence
of position, honor, or achievement? Every wide-awake 1111111 seeks to better himself,
to increase his worth. to rise to a higher plane, to gain for himself a name, a fortune
or fame. How he toils and struggles to climb the ladder of greatness, until he can
perch himself upon the topmost rung and s111ile upon his fellowmen. He willingly
endures the pain of climbing for the hope of finding satisfaction at the top. He
stiiies his heart's desire for present peace with the promise of rest to be found at
He may attain to the highest level. 'That he will fall short of his aim, or die in
the struggle, is a greater likelihood. In either event he will be disappointed, for
satisfaction and rest are not found through self-effort. To gain a position, high and
exalted, is to assume the innumerable attendant responsibilities that harass and per-
plex continuallyg to amass a large fortune is but to heap up untold 111isery and care:
to win honor and fa111e is to make one's self a target for criticism and slander. It is
folly to seek for peace and rest in the height of greatness. They are not there.
VVhere, then. may they be found? The answer is, in humility, in meekness, in
lowliness. VVith pride and selfish ambition banished from his heart, the humble man
enjoys unsurpassed tranquillity of lllillll and soul. "God t giveth grace to
the humble." The 111an who learns meekness and lowliness of heart is assured of
inward peace. David said, "the 111eek shall delight themselves in the abundance of
peace." Christ calls all men to learn of Him, the pattern of meekness, and promises
rest to all who humbly follow Him. just as water rests only when it reaches the
lowest level, so men rest only when they live and walk humbly before God and their
Some have mistaken humility to 111ean a process or state of self-degradation or
debasement, robbing man of his inherent abilities and ruthlessly destroying his ideals.
In this they err. Humility is the absence of pride, arrogance, pretensions. More than
that, it is the recognition of the sovereignty of God and a yieldedness to His will.
It is the acceptance of God's way as the best way. It is to merge every l'1LlIl13l'1 desire
in the will of the Master. In relation to one's fellowmen, it implies a willingness to
serve, a readiness to minister.
And herein lies true greatness. He who aspires to a position of eminence will do
well to heed the words of our Lord, "He that is greatest among you shall be your
servant," and "He that humbleth himself shall be exalted." The way up leads down-
ward. iVoulcl that men might grasp this truth! "W'hosoever, therefore, shall humble
l1i1nself as thisllittle child, the same is greatest in the Kingdom of heaven."

Courtesy will Iind its deiinition in these words, "All things whatsoever ye would
that men should do to you, do ye even so to them." This is its law and foundation.
The nature of courtesy is plain, and is bound up in a volume of small things:
it expresses itself in kindness. lt is real and becoming, sweet and ever abiding like
the fragrance of the myrtle. It is simply a little consideration for others. Giving a
helping hand, when opportunity presents itself is proof of its rule.
Its source may be that of a refined rearing and high education, but in such a case
it is evidently too fashionable to tit everywhere. The kind that tlows from a new heart
eager to express itself. the type related to the courtesy of jesus is best. In practicing
courtesy care must be taken not to be too polite. NVe all know the "Happy Hooliganu
who stands as a warning' of being too generous. Thus our best intentions may be
misunderstood and become otfensive instead of pleasing. True courtesy is rather the
unconscious move in a mind that tries to please, which is the same at home as far
away from home, on the streets. on the highways. a shopping or at work-everyday
courtesy. It always keeps itself within the boundary of common sense.
The value of courtesy cannot be over-estimated: a friendly act once shown to
somebody may knit the tie of friendship for life, and a kind word thrown at random
is bound to come back like "bread upon the waters."

"Do you remember how we felt this time last year, Grace ?"
"Goodness, yesg I'll never forget that tirst day. But even in its bare state the
room spells 'XVelcome' this year." af
The scene of this conversation was a room in the B. 'l'. S.: the speakers, two
Senior girls just returned after the summer vacationg the time, the opening of the
school term any September. 'l'he girls, having arrived a few hours previous to this
conversation, had already exchanged greetings with "Mother" Lugibihl and the rest
of the family who were there. 'l'he fact that their trunks had come, and that time
waits for no one, convinced Grace and Ruth that they must pay some attention to
the demands of their room if there was to be any sleeping for them that night.
"Really, I didn't know it could seem this nice to get anywhere but home." ex-
claimed Ruth. as she curled up on her unmade bed.
'tXVhat is this but getting to our other home? But don't stop there: we'll enjoy
talking much more with curtains up and things in order. Besides, folks will be
coming any time and all the time tomorrow and we won't have the least desire to
do this then. So come on."
"Right, of course," answered Ruth, getting up with alacrity. "Where did I put
my trunk key? Did you pay Mr. liicher for getting our trunks F"
"Oh, Ruth, the key is probably in your purse," laughed Grace, "and we'll settle
with Mr. Eicher tomorrow. I already have my trunk unlocked: and here goes the
key back to its last year's resting place by the door. I'm thankful that one nail was
already in the wall."
So, amid much chattering and frequent interruptions, the unpacking was begung
and in a remarkably short time the room assumed a very "lived-in" appearance.
"There, everything is in place-"
"lVait, that curtain isn't quite straight. Now it is. I scarcely feel like I'd been
away." said Ruth. "But we're far from being ready for supper."
Supper over, the room mates decided to take a walk and see how much things
had changed in three months.
"Come on, Ruth, let's go to the river: directions don't matter yet. lbo you remem-
ber the last time we were down there ?"
"Yes, indeed-the day we picked violets for commencement. How my back ached Y"
Back from the river, a long talk with "NIother,' and it was ten-thirty.
"Grace! I'm surprised: don't the rules say 'Lights out at ten' ?"
"Yes, my dear, but rules don't go on until six a. ni. Thursday. We'd better begin
to get in practice, though."
Ding, dong, ding-
"How could anyone ever fail to hear that ?" exclaimed Grace, as the peals of the
gong announced six a. in.
"It seems impossible: but it won't be very long before we will sleep blissfully on
in spite of it." answered Ruth.
At 6:25 the quiet hour bell sounded. Both girls were ready and welcomed the
time of meditation and prayer, when each might meet the Lord before the day's
VVith breakfast over. Ruth and Grace took up their places at their look-out, the
"Theres a street car: who is that getting oif ?" asked Grace.
"I can't tell. Yes-it's Mae. XVho's in that car ?"
"Come! Frances! XVhen did you get here? XVhere are you going to room ?"
"Look, girls, there comes a new girl. I wonder if the place looks as restful and
inviting to her as it did to me. Ilo you remember our tirst glimpse of the school?"
asked lfrances, when the lirst excitement of meeting had passed.
"I certainly do. lJo you remember 'N1other's" meeting us in center hall? If
'Mother' is there she'll forget her strangeness."
"Come on, let's go meet her. Here come some other new students. Mavbe we can
help them get settled and feel at home." I
So the lirst day passed, crowded full of happy greetings and meetings. By eve-
ning the school was throbbing with life-truly a busy home.
The next morning dawned: the lirst day of classes-and incidentally, of rules.
"First bell for class! XVhat is it? I'm glad this schedule isn't quite as much of a
cross-word puzzle as last year," said Ruth.
"VVe're actually beginning our Senior work! The new girls must be as hope-
lessly mixed up as we were: let's see what we can do. for them."
Thus the lirst week passed-trying out the schedule and tilting the big group
into a coordinated family.
'tThere's the 5:45 bell: let's see if we can get the tennis court," suggested Ruth
one afternoon in the second week.
"There's no one out there. Ask Frances and Gladys to play," answered Grace.
In a few minutes the girls were crossing the campus to the court in the rear,
careful to keep in the straight and narrow way, for the boys were playing baseball
on the other side.
"Are you girls going to prayer meeting?" asked Gladys, when the players paused
after a closely contested game.
"Yes, indeed. XVhich means we must quit-it's twenty minutes to tive now," was
Ruth's ready answer.
The sound of the supper bell called the students from the evening prayer meeting.
As the girls entered the dining room and separated to go to their respective tables.
Mae said, "I wish Mr. XVitmer would have us push our chairs back tonight."
Ding-the last spoon is laid down, the last napkin folded, and silence reigns.
"VVe'll push our chairs back," said Mr. NVitmer.
YVhen the circle around the big dining room was quiet, all eyes were turned toward
the leader, anxious for the blessed time of praise and fellowship to follow.
"This is your meeting-praises, requests for prayer, a song-anything is in
order," said Mr. XVitmer.
"Let us sing 'My jesus, I Love 'I'hee'."
Clear testimonies, precious promises. a season of prayer, and evening worship
was over once more.
As the girls met in their rooms again Ruth said, "Do you remember how we
enjoyed evening worship last year, especially when we pushed our chairs back P"
"Yes. But Ruth, the days are passing so quickly, and commencement will be here
before we know it. Do you remember last May how thankful we were that we had
another year to spend at this dear place
"I surely do: but we've begun that year now. A busy time until Christmas, then
another busy few months. I think so often of a remark Mr. Ramseyer made the tirst

To all of God's children come severe temptations and testings. We need to be
conscious of the blessed assurance that we are His, and that His Comforter, the Holy
Spirit, abides with us. Satan and his emissaries are especially busy, now before the
Lord's return, destroying the confidence of God's children in His ability to save them.
Satan brings doubts of all kinds to God's children, which, if harbored, will bring
After a day of teaching, as I was driving homo from school, my mind was filled
with doubts and fears. During the busy day they had been lurking in the background,
but in the evening, when the little folks were dismissed from their tasks, these doubts
and fears came crowding down upon me. As I rode along I longed to be free from
my load of care. Some time before this I had received the Holy Spirit by faith.
Satan was now trying to show me that the Comforter had not come, or if He had
come, that He had already left, and that I never would be able to live a victorious
life. On my way homeward such old hymns as "The Solid Rock" helped me. Arriving
at home I found a letter from Africa for me. When I opened the envelope, my eyes
fell upon a Bible verse and a date which had been cut from a calendar and enclosed.
There from across the ocean was God's message to me: "Continue thou, in the things
which thou hast learned and hast been assured of."-II Timothy 3:14.
To all of God's children comes His command. "Continue thou in the things which
thou hast learned and hast been assured of."
If Satan thrusts evil thoughts and imaginings into our minds, trying to prove
that our Savior has forsaken us, we need but take the shield of faith whereby we will
be able to turn aside every fiery dart of the evil one.-Eph. 6:16. For has He not
said. 'II will never leave thee nor forsake thee ?" Blondin, the tight rope walker.
crossing the Niagara on a rope, kept his eyes fastened on a golden star tixed at the
opposite end. Our golden star is Christ. "Continue thou" with the gaze always fixed
on the Golden Star.
When we fear that. after all we will fail because we are so weak and faulty, our
confidence is renewed in prayer. Then we continue trusting, for here we learn that
"it is God which worketh in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure."
As two Christian women talked together one said. "I have a very comforting
text which helps me much: 'VVhat time I am afraid I will trust in Thee' IPs. 56:3j".
The other replied, "I have a better text than that: 'I will trust and not be afraid'
Have you ever felt that what you were able to do was so useless? That others
were much more capable than you? And did you wonder how the Lord could really
use you? But our Lord says. "Continue thou." There is an old Chinese proverb which
says, "Don't fear fiom, only fear 110 go." Slow is not the foe to fear, it is :zo go.
God's Word tells us, "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, de-
ceiving and being deceived." Always remember, "Continue thou in the things which
thou hast learned and hast been assured of." We need not fear, for Jesus' sweet voice
whispers, "Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? My
grace is sufficient for thee. for My strength is made perfect in weakness."
Serv ire In Tm in ing
What is the meaning of "Service in Trainingn?
In a word, it is application. Men have lived, stored their minds with knowledge,
and died without having accomplished anything of value by their living-all because
their knowledge was not translated into practice. The success or failure of a man's
life hinges, not upon his intellectual, and spiritual acquirements, but rather upon his
usefulness to God and to the world. "So much one man can do, that does both act
In the Bible Training School the material for building a life is obtained, and the
impetus for making that life a fruitful one is given. Hearts and minds are developed
and strengthened, not only by careful and prayerful instruction, but also through the
medium of practical service. Someone has said, "lfVe makel the most of our life when
we accept our own place and do well our own work." In "service in training" there
is a splendid opportunity for discovering one's possibilities and one's place in life.
The students find open doors for Sunday School teaching in the County Orphan-
age and local churches, gospel singing in shop and factory meetings, tract distribu-
tion in pool halls and similar resorts, hospital and home visitation, and a wide minis-
try, known as gospel team work, in the churches of the surrounding rural districts,
towns and cities.
And what student does not find that the last named activity is a bright spot in
his school life? There is a joy and blessing in it which is unlike that of any other
phase of school work. There is the pleasure, not only of taking a trip in the "Gospel
bus," of finding new friends and kind hospitality, but of giving to hungry hearts
the sweet message of God's saving and keeping power, in song and testimony.
Satan's army is constantly arrayed to disparage and to defeat any move against
his kingdom. Hence "practical work" is not merely practice work for a future min-
istry. but a very real participation in active warfare. It is necessary to be clad in
"the whole armor of God," strengthened with truth, impelled by the gospel of peace.
protected by salvation, righteousness, and faith, and to have as a weapon the sword
of the Spirit. Then there must be constant dependence upon the Holy Spirit for tact
and wisdom to meet every circumstance, willingness to sacrifice personal comfort and
preference, readiness to till any and every place. loving enthusiasm in witnessing.
and courage to overcome every testing obstacle.
God's hand is upon the work and the workers, and there are increasing opportu-
nities and increasing results. Souls have been saved through the ministry of student
Sunday School teachers: untold cheer and comfort have been given to sufferers in
the hospitals and to 'fshut-ins" at home: and many lives within a wide radius of
the School have been transformed through the ministry of prayer and faithful en-
The seed is being sown and the reaping is going on. Much of what has been
accomplished is known: but the full account will never be reckoned until "we shall
know as we are known" and see, through our Masters eyes, the ultimate influence of
a printed message, a spoken word, or a bit of song.

l wif Carpe! Team Trip
Our trip began with the announcement on the bulletin board. "Truck leaves Satur-
day at two-fifteen."
Saturday noon came and the weather was ideal. All of the members of the team
were anxious to get started. The moments seemed to drag until we heard someone
announce that the truck was waiting. Even then we were detained because john could
not find his book.
The Gospel Truck was evidently built more for service than for comfort, for the
springs are not altogether a success in absorbing the innumerable bumps. Knowing
this, the boys always sit in the rear of the truck and let the girls occupy the more
comfortable seats. XVhen the last available space was taken we were ready to leave.
Before the motor was started we bowed our heads in prayer asking for a safe journey
and God's blessing upon the trip.
Once on the road. conversation did not lag, "highly seasoned" with songs and
choruses. "XVe'll Roll the Old Chariot Along." "Since I Have Been Redeeinedu-
song after song we sang, and an old fashioned prayer and testimony service was
Thus the sixty-mile drive passed quickly, and we found ourselves at our destination
-a large farmhouse, where a hearty welcome awaited us.
As soon as we were ready supper was served. Fifteen young people left no oppor-
tunity for the hostess to feel that her work in preparing the bountiful supper had been
wasted. During the course of the meal Harry accidentally got his coat sleeve mixed
up with the baked apples and we all had a good laugh. XYhen supper was over the

The evening service was well attended and a number responded to the invitation
following a stirring message. After the service was dismissed, we were assigned our
respective places for the night.
Sunday morning we awoke to find that it was raining! At tirst our hopes were
slightly dampened. but after a season of prayer. faith gave us the assurance of victory
regardless of weather conditions.
Everyone came to church prepared for an all-day service. the mothers bringing
well filled baskets. The morning service was conducted by the team. Testimonies of
personal experiences. a number of songs by the quartette. and a short message were
given. Then the service was dismissed and everyone went to the basement for dinner.
And such a dinner! There was everything a good appetite could crave.
After a little season of fellowship it was time for the afternoon service. It was
opened with a good "pop-corn" testimony meeting. Souls grew hungry and many
came to the altar to seek the Lord.
The evening service brought our trip to a climax. After a heart-searching mes-
sage by the evangelist. the altar was filled with seekers. Then followed testimonies
of praise as one after another found peace with God.
Our friends bade us adieu and gave us a hearty invitation to return. Our trip
home abounded in rehearsals of the experiences of the day and in praise to God for

Labor is a divinely established ordinance. The heavens arched above us, and the
sea and land below are not accidental. They are the product of a great Workman.
"The heavens declare the glory of God and the nrmament sheweth his handiwork."
This divine ordinance of labor is not only an essential characteristic in G0d's own
nature, but God has made it innate within his creatures. Why does the little seed
deposited in the soil develop into a plant? Because it has the ability of receiving
certain elements and transforming them into energy-it works. Why do the little
eggs deposited in a nest come to be full-sized birds in a few weeks? Because of the
patient, painstaking care of the mother bird-by work. Why was God able to reveal
Himself to the world through jesus Christ? Certainly He never could have done so,
had jesus been solicitous of the Haunting robes of imbecile idleness and vanity which
He might have had by accepting offers of earthly dominion. No, jesus did not come
into the world to be served, but to be a servant, to minister, and to toil. VVhat a dig-
nity afforded to labor-that the true character of the Sovereign of the Universe
should be demonstrated by the life of a servant! The world thinks of labor as some-
thing imposed, and to be avoided as far as possible. It looks upon those who are
suliiciently rich that they need not work as the nobility. The vanity of such a concep-
tion of labor is obvious. Let such idlers learn of God-how great He is and yet He
.ff1'1fe'5. Let him who would please God be courageous-of a mind to work.
The fact that Christ came into the world as a servant bears the intimation that
He came to do something. XVhat did Christ come to do, and what is the work of His
disciples? VVithout fear of contradiction it may be said that this work is the salvation
of the sinner. The ultimate purpose of Calvary was the salvation of the sinner. The
essential theme of the Gospel is the salvation of the sinner. And the ultimate aim of
the Christian's labors must be nothing other than the salvation of the sinner.
The disciple is called to give his whole life to this service. jesus called Simon
Peter and Andrew by saying, "Follow me and I will make you to become iishers of
men." VVhen a person sets out to follow jesus his secular occupation ceases to be the
sole concern of life, but at most, only tributary to the work of winning souls. It is
a sad fact that Christians often regard soul-winning as though it were to be seriously
engaged in only at the time of the annual winter revival. Asl tishers of men they are
exemplified by the city sportsman who goes to the lakes to tish for a holiday pastime.
It is not a life or death matter to him, merely a thrill. How many who have set out
as disciples of jesus are only playing at their task! Their chief interest is in some
The work of the kingdom of God calls for !aborar.v. lt needs laborers who are
interested in the work: laborers who know the Word and count no hardship great

hour every day the prayer bands gather for special intercession in behalf of mission-

The growth of these midday prayer meetings i11 the past three years is proof of
the fact that they have become a vital part of school life. These meetings l1ave always
bee11 held at noon in the chapel, but it was not until a few years ago that any organ-

so-called "Bands," Originally Hllly Seniors a11d juniors were niembers of these, but

VValking along Rudisill and hearing some music, Paul inquired, "Where is that
line singing. james?" They looked around and james answered, "There is light
in the chapel of the Bible School, that singing must be there." "Oh, say," said Paul.
"that reminds me, this is Mission Band night. Let's go and see what they'll have
tonight." They entered, and two young men met them at the door to direct them to
a seat. Soon they were absorbed in the hearty spirit of the meeting and joined in the
singing of the old familiar hymns, "Take the Name of jesus with You" and "VVhat
a VVonderful Savior."
The meeting was opened with prayer, after which the leader stated that this was
a special farewell service for Brother and Sister Steiner, who were to leave for South
America in a few weeks. He also explained that Brother Steiner was the missionary
supported by the Students' Mission Band. For tive minutes the students quoted
Scripture promises for the missionaries. Mr. and Mrs. Carl Parlee brought a special
number in song, and its message, "jesus ls just the Same," caused all to rejoice
with Mr. and Mrs. Steiner that jesus really is just the same in South America as
here. After an illustration of a stingy man who suddenly changed his mind about
replastering the church and said he'd give 550, when a piece of plaster fell on his
head, the offering was taken. during which time the otfertory was enjoyed. Paul and
james were filled with the missionary spirit already. for Paul put in a S5 greenback,
and james gave all. that he had in his pocket. After another number in music, Mrs.
Steiner gave a short farewell message. Then all stood, and while the windows were
opened for fresh air the chorister led the chorus. "There Shall Be Showers of Bless-
ing," after which Mr. Steiner gave a practical message on "The NVhy of Missions."
Following this, the whole student body sang "jesus, My jesus." A package of Iifty-
six steamer letters was presented to the missionaries: these were designatd to serve
as dessert during the eleven days on the ocean. After a few remarks. Rev. B. F.
Leightner presented a Coleman lantern to them as a token of remembrance from
the Mission Band. After prayer and the chorus, "Bless Them, Lord, and Make Them
a Blessing," was sung, the congregation was dismissed.
XVith a greatly increased missionary enthusiasm, Paul and james left and resumed
their walk on Rudisill. Paul said, "I'll try to name those reasons for missionary
work that Brother Steiner gave. Let's see, the first was that jesus commanded His
disciples to go into all the world and preach the Gospel, and we as His disciples are
to show our love to the Lord by obeying Him. Then. Christianity is what the world
needs more than anything else, and is the only thing that will change the lives of
individuals. The heathen are lost forever, without the Gospel. And his last reason
was that missions are a means of bringing jesus back to earth again." james's heart
was touched and he said, "Paul, let's you and I do everything that we possibly can
to spread the Gospel." VVhen they came to their parting place they bade each other
"Good-night," and Paul finished the conversation by saying, "james, let's not forget
to hold the ropes for Brother and Sister Steiner, and the other missionaries, while
they are working to save souls. And let's try our best, Brother, to bring someone else
with us to Mission Band next Friday night."
The .WIYTSKZ-07151737 Editors Abroad
As we had been commissioned to visit the various mission fields on which the
B. T. S. missionaries are laboring, we thought the trip might be of interest to our
LIGHT TOWER friends at home and abroad.
W'e sailed from New York on October 25, and, as we watched the shore line grow
fainter and fainter, we realized just a little of how the missionaries must feel when
leaving the home land and their loved ones. But when we think, and no doubt they do
too, of the command of Christ and the rewards laid up for us, these sacrifices seem
nothing. For John says, "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down
His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren."
Our voyage between New York and Liverpool was made very enjoyable by the
sweet fellowship we had with several missionaries of other denominations. Arriving
in Liverpool we were able to spend several days sightseeing. as the sailing of our
steamer was delayed. In spite of the delightful time we had while in England, we
were only too glad to continue on our journey to Africa.
Our first stopping place was Lagos, and from there we took the train to jebba,
Nigeria, where we were made to feel very much at home by Mr. Melvin Rich, '27,
and his wife, formerly Esther W'agler, '24.
Zuru, still farther north, was our next destination, where Mr. and Mrs. joseph
Ummel tMabel Hygemab, '24, have their headquarters. Our visits at these different
mission stations, though brief, gave us a greater insight into the work that is being
done in this dark continent toward the hastening of our Lord's return.
The trip from Zuru back to Boma on the coast was one that we shall not soon
forget. and was a succession of novel experiences, both pleasant and otherwise. Ar-
riving in Roma, Congo, we spent several days with Mr. Clarence l. llirkey, '23, who
is preaching the Gospel in that seaport.
Leaving Boma, we traveled inland to Charlesville, Belgian Congo. where Mr.
Omar Sutton. '18, and Mrs. Sutton, together with Miss liinnia Richert and Miss
Agnes Sprunger of the Congo Inland Mission are laboring.
Our next trip was south into the territory of Angola, where we enjoyed a brief
visit with Miss Hannah Bracy, '20, at Kumbanga. Then back again to Boma. where
we boarded the steamer which was to take us around the Cape and north along the
east coast to Mombasa, from where we trekked inland to Machakos. There we spent
a few days with Miss Helena Goosen, 'l0.
Owing to the fact that our time was limited. we were unable to visit Mr, Archie
Haller, '22, and Mrs. Haller, in the Belgian Congog also Mr, Sandercock and Mr.
Thomas Miller of the Sudan Interior Mission. Possibly it would be of interest to
some of you to know those of our B. T. S. missionaries who are in the l'nited States
from Africa-Mr. Mlalter Herr, '09, Miss Edna Amstutz. Mrs. Menno Amstutz
4Rilla Klopfensteiny, Miss Affie Smoots, '09, Miss Irene Stouder. Miss Clara Klint.
'20, Mr. Paul Ummel, '24, and Mr. Alvin Becker, '21,
India, the land of "religions," with its teeming millions of poor lost souls, made
a strange appeal to us, and we were very anxious to see for ourselves the various
customs and practices of which we had heard so much.
VVe landed at Bombay on the west coast and were very pleasantly surprised to
find Mr. jesse Ringenberg waiting for us on the dock. We certainly were glad for
his company, as he was able to explain the scenes and customs of the people with
whom we came in contact.
From Bombay we went on to Akola, as it was just Conference time and all the
missionaries were there. The Conference was a time of great refreshing spiritually.
and we are sure the missionaries returned to their stations feeling more capable of
going ahead with the great task before them.
XYe met many of the missionaries, among them our B. 'l'. S. friends. Mr. Olen
Schlatter, who is stationed at Chalisgaon: Mr. jesse Ringenberg. '20, from Mehmeda-
bad, Gujerat, and Mr. and Mrs. Bert Siegel, who are in charge of the Boys' Boarding
School at Akola: Miss Tamar XVright from Matar, Gujerat. and also Miss Elda
Amstutz, who is associated with the Ramabai Mukti Mission at Khedgaon.
One evening between services, we walked out to the Akola cemetery, where we
saw the graves of several of the missionaries who had been called home by their
Master. Miss Nancy Ramseyer's grave was numbered among them. She is the only
one of our number on that field to have given her life in the work.
About 900 miles north at Lakhimpur, Kheri, U. P., we spent a few days with
Mrs. Cox and her three little boys. This station is on the border of Nepal, an
Mr. Tilman .-Xmstutz, '17, Mr. Gerhard Iiliewer, '18, and his wife, and Mr. and
Mrs. P. L. Iiicher are the missionaries at home from India.
The time had arrived for us to leave India for China. W'e were very much afraid
that we would be unable to visit many of the mission stations there on account of the
political disturbances. However, we were able to pay a brief visit to Mr. and Mrs.
S. 1.1. Tung 4Mary Lyon Leei, '26, They gave us a very good description of the
condition in China as it really exists. Taking these facts into consideration, we
thought it best not to attempt to visit the other missionaries on the held. namely, Miss
lileanor Haberling, '13, at Tengyueli, Yunan, South China: Mr. Peter lioehr, Mr.
-lohn Schmidt, and Miss Mae Baucher, '18, at Yenping liahieng Miss Minnie Hilty,
'11, and Mr. and Mrs. Philip Hinkey.
Many of the missionaries have been forced to return to the homeland: among
them, Mr. and Mrs. Ezra Roth tHelen Siemensl, '18, Miss Fannie Baumgartner, Mr.
Charles Roberts, '1-1, Miss Elizabeth Hilty, Miss Ruby Lundgren, '19, Mr. and Mrs.
gl. F. Steiner, Miss Edith Beyerle, Mrs. Peter K, Kiehn lSusie Baltzern, '18, Mr.
Peter Baltzer, '12, and Mrs. Peter llaltzer 1Lydia Meyersi, '11, Mr. -I. ul. Schrag,
Mr. R. J. Birkey, '23, Miss Ina K. Birkey. '23, Miss Amy Applegate, '20, and Miss
Mary De Garmo.
During the past years death has claimed two faithful workers, Mrs. Charles Rob-
erts tFlorence Suterm, '14, and Miss Nellie Bowen, '09, who had been on the iield
only two years.
XVe had a very delightful voyage from Hong Kong to Honolulu, where we vis-
ited Mr. XVilliani Oyer, '19, who is engaged in missionary work together with his
brother, Alvin Oyer, '21. Their work is among different nationalities of people.
Hawaiians, japanese, Portuguese and Filipinos.
On leaving Honolulu we took a steamer bound for Peru, South America, hoping
to be able to visit Huanuco, where Mr. and Mrs. Clayton Steiner were to be stationed
upon their arrival.
Upon inquiry at the steamship otlice we learned that their steamer was due to
arrive two days later, so we decided to wait and surprise them at the dock. They were
no more pleased at the unexpected meeting than we were, and we soon learned that
they had visited at the Bible Training School shortly before they left the States.
XVe accompanied them to Huanuco, where they were initiated into their new duties.
The work there is prospeiringv greatly, for which we praise the Lord.
South America surely needs the light of salvation to free it from the bonds of
Catholicism, and we were made to rejoice in the thought that we as a Bible School
had a part in the evangelization of this needy land, since Mr. Steiner is being sup-
ported by our Students' Mission Band.
Had it been possible we would have gone across country to Rio de Janeiro, there
to have seen the grave of Mr. Edison Steiner, '15, who so nobly laid down his life
in the Master's service. From that country Mr. David Siemens, '17, is now on fur-
XVe sailed from Peru for Havana, Cuba, where our steamer laid in a supply of
coal: we were thus able to visit with Mrs. Primitivo Acosta tLuella Benzl, '19, who
came on board for the few hours we were in dock.
Thus ended our delightful journey to the various mission fields where our B. T. S.
missionaries are proclaiming the glad tidings to all.
At last we turned our faces homeward: but we were not the same as when we left.
Our eyes had been opened as never before to the great need all over this world.
"The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few-Pray ye therefore the
Lord of the harvest that he will send forth laborers into his harvest."

' 0 You Kfzozv?
That you are one of the links in a chain. or have you never stopped to think about
it? Or perhaps you have considered the question and then shifted the responsibility
to another's shoulders. Surely you must realize that Gods only method of saving
men is through an endless human chain, and your very knowledge of that fact neces-
sarily makes you one of the links.
Gods missionary program may be compared to a river, beginning at one tiny
point and then gathering breadth and force until it becomes a mighty current. The
beginning point was when "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten
Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
jesus, the supreme gift, left all the glorious splendor of heaven, "made himself of
no reputation. and took upon him the form of a servantf' then, in the likeness of
men came down to earth to live. to suffer, and to die for the sin of the world. At
Calvary Gods side of redemption was completed.
Since then redemption has depended upon human instrumentality. jesus, during
His earthly life, visited only a very small percentage of even the then known world.
and just a minute percentage of its people knew anything about Him or His work.
-lesus died for the whole world, and He returned to heaven after having "merely
created a new life in a few ordinary human beings." but commanded them to go and
make the rest of the world into disciples like themselves, promising to be with them
all the days.
In that command and in obedience to it lie the secret of the fultillment of Christ's
ministry and death. Yet it cannot be carried out except through human hearts which
thave been touched and cleansed by jesus' blood and are tilled with love for I-Iim
and for others. It was love which led the Son to give His life for men, It is love
which makes it possible for all the world to hear and know that Jesus died to save
and keep from sin.
"One loving heart sets another on tire." Burning love, under the influence of the
Holy Spirit. spreads from one heart to another with increasing fervor and zeal. Love
for home and family in the hearts of men has performed heroic deeds. Love for
country has overturned thrones and changed the destiny of nations. God is dependent
on love, and love for Him will not fail in accomplishing His purpose.
Souls in darkness cannot call upon or believe in Christ when they have not heard
of Him. They cannot hear unless someone shall tell them. Some must tell others.
and they others. God cannot accomplish the work unaided, neither can you nor I.
lt must be "God and I"-God the power, I the personality. God stands able, ready,
and willing with the power. Am I ready and willing with the personality? Can I
fail to let my love grow and respond to His call. that the world may not be deprived
of the love which He would shed upon it? He was not willing that any should perish:

With the publication of the L1oHT TOWER a long cherished dream has become a
reality. The question of a B. T. 5. yearbook had been discussed long enoughg the
class of 1928 had faith to believe that it could be accomplished. Not in our own
strength was this possible. but class and staff undertook the task for the Master's
glory, and in His strength the work was commenced and has been completed.
The staff has sought to incorporate the very spirit of the B. T. S. in the pages of
the LIGHT TOWER: as the book goes forth on its mission. we trust that this spirit may
be carried to every reader.
To all those, both faculty, students and friends, who have helped to make this
publication a success. and especially to our faculty advisor, Mr. XVitmer, whose time
and help have been so freely given, we wish to express our sincere appreciation.
This is the iirst yearbook-we hope it shall be the tirst of many.
As members of the L1oH'r 'l'owER staff we fully appreciate the honor conferred
upon us by the class when they placed the editing of this yearbook in our hands:
but, as this book goes to press, we are keenly conscious of a number of other things
pertaining to editorial positions, The past few months have indeed been a revelation
to us. NVe are convinced that there is much in the life of a journalist which is far
from sleep-producing, and we understand now why writers are often classed, with
artists and musicians, among the eccentrics.
just how has the publication of the Lic:HT 'l'owER been such an eye-opener to us?
Since the feat has been accomplished we have no objections to exposing our varied
experiences to our readers.
Imagine, at the outset, that you are one of a group of six people confronted with
this task: the Senior Class, having decided to publish a yearbook, chooses your group
as the staff. and instructs you to assume the responsibility of its publication. This
was our position. Of one thing we were connclentf-the cooperation of the class: and
with that assurance we set our faces toward the goal, considering ourselves the serv-
ants of the class and of the school.
That ever present problem of the finances loomed up before us immediately. Oh,
the hours of planning and figuring to make one dollar do double duty, and to realize
whence that one was to be forthcoming!
Next we faced the question of deciding how to cover all the lields of' our Schools
activities within the covers of a seventy-two page book. XVhat to accept and what to
reject from the mountain of material was no small part of our task. lVhen all of this
was behind us, for some reason we felt that much of our burden was gone. What an
awakening was before us!
Soon the entire school was made to realize that the yearbook was not mere talk:
the subscription campaign and the epidemic of pictures that swept the school left no
room for doubt among the most skeptical.
In the meantime staff members were testing their ability as authors. NVrite, re-
write, submit for correction, write again-and maybe again-was the process of
evolution through which the articles on these pages passed. Thought, labor, loss of
sleep-possibly tears-and much prayer have gone into our work.
'l'hen came those last few days with much revision, some things to be written, a
great amount of typing and copy reading, and' at last-the work was completed.
The last article was marked with its final O, K.. the last cut was packed-the LIGHT
Towitk was off to the printer.
lVith a sigh of relief and a song of praise in our hearts. we realized that our
responsibility was ended. A great amount of work? Yes-but we do not regret one
bit of it Has it been worth the price? XVe leave that for our readers to judge, just
this in closing-there is always joy in working for the Master: there has been joy
in the editing of the LIGHT TOWER, for we have again proved God's faithfulness,-

Fellowship is a word that conveys to us a depth, a richness. a beauty of meaning
that is found in few other words.
There is the fellowship of friend with friend, a mysterious bond which binds
hearts in an unbroken tie of human relationship. Then there is the tie which binds
even closer than that of friendship, the bond which unites two so closely that they
are said to be one. There is yet another kind of fellowship, which is not understood by
the world-the fellowship of Christians. Who has not gone into an unfamiliar church.
and yet sensed there that indetinable bond which unites Christian hearts? However.
the fellowship which is truly the most marvelous and incomprehensible is that which
exists between the Christian and God. lt is this which makes Christianity different
from any other religion.
'We find all these kinds of fellowship included in the B. T. family. There have
been warm human friendships formed which have proven true, sincere, and lasting,
Friendships have also been formed which have culminated in the bond that welds
two so closely that they are one "until death do them part." Everyone who has ever
attended the School appreciates deeply the Christian fellowship which is manifested
in every phase of school life, and which follows him after he leaves. Above all of
these, however. is that "friendship with jesus. fellowship divine." which grows in-
creasingly sweet in the atmosphere of the School.
B. T. S. students cherish this fellowship so highly that they seek to perpetuate
it after school days are ended and after they have taken their places in the big world
of busy life. In order to accomplish this the Fellowship Circle was organized. Be-
ginning at the B. T. this Circle embraces former faculty members, workers and
students the world around-in the heart of Africa. the jungles of South America.
India. China, and the isles of the sea.
The purpose of this organization is to strengthen the bond of fellowship formed
at the School, to promote a spirit of prayer for the School and for one another. and
to lend service to the School by encouraging all to be its worthy representatives and
to help its growth in every possible way. To carry out this program, the Circle holds
an annual meeting on the evening of Commencement. and also publishes an eight-
page quarterly paper known as Thr flc'HI7'Zi',Vhff7 Cirrlrf' Bullefein.
In the ranks of this Circle are men and women from many walks of life. All
have a definite ministry to perform for the Lord in their particular sphere of labor.
XVe regret that we cannot. for lack of space. record the names of every Fellowship
Circle member. but in the following pages the reader will tind the name of every
B. T. S. graduate.

God has His best things for the few
That dare to stand the testg
God has His second best for those
XVho will not have His best.
It is not always open ill
That risks the Promised Restg
The better, often, is the foe
That keeps us from the best.
There's scarcely one but vaguely wants
In some way to be blestg
'Tis not Thy blessing, Lord, I seek-
I want Thy very best.
And others make the highest choice,
But when by trials pressed,
They shrink, they yield, they shun th
And so they lose the best.
I want, in this short life of mine,
As much as can be pressed
Of service true for God and mang
Help me to be my best.
I want to stand when Christ appears
In spotless raiment dressed: '
Numbered among His hidden ones,
His holiest and best.
I want among the victor throng
To have my name confessed:
And hear my Master say at last
W'ell doneg you did your best!
Give me, O Lord. Thy highest choice:
Let others take the rest 3
Their good Ming: have no charm for
For I have got ,Thy best.
-A. B. SIMPSON.

worth knowing, if it is known by a person worthy to use it. and if it is used.

If you want true friendship, begin by building it from your own end of the line.
lfriendship is always a partnership affair.
All the sermons ever preached on prayer cannot make its power and its comfort
so plain as learning' its secret from experience.
The rest that God gives to His people through Christ is a "1'emainin,g" rest. The
rest of earth so soon passes away. How glad should we be that we have a rest that is
not taken away from us when we need it the most!
