"Lo, I have given thee a wise and understand-
No words could more aptly describe our Dean's
most appreciated characteristic than these which
were written of one who realized the necessity of
Divine Wisdom in administering the duties to
which he has fallen heir.
For twelve years Mr. Leightner has grown in
the understanding of school administration and
even more in the understanding of the personal
problems of the student hearts under his tutelage.
A student perplexed and troubled is met in his
office with the impression that the Dean has noth-
ing to do that is nearly so important as the solving
of this new problem. Even the stranger within our
halls feels he has his own place in the Dean's hears.
He is blessed with a keen sense of humor which
robs him of any tendency to preachment or dry-
ness. A faculty for seeing the Master's love in ev-
erything brings frequent exclamations of praise to
his lips in the midst of teaching.
W'ith hearts of loving gratitude we dedicate this
volume of the LIGHT TOWER to,
Rev. B. F. LEIGHTNER.

When Christ left the earth and commanded His
chosen disciples to spread the Gospel throughout
the whole earth, He intended that all His follow--
ers ever afterward should devote themselves to this
task. We believe we can have a part in this work
in the publication of this yearbook. Since the spir-
it of this commission is also the spirit of the Bible
Institute, it is our aim that this yearbook should
reflect the same spirit. It is the prayer of our hearts
that the Holy Spirit might use it in the further-
ing of Christ's kingdom on earth by speaking to
the hearts of the unsaved who read it. We hope
that it Will reflect the life and spirit of the school
with such reality that others may be drawn to
these sacred halls and that those who have been
here might be stirred anew and to a more fervent
service by memories of former days. Since this edi-
tion of the LIGHT TOWER can only be a beacon to
souls as He permits Divine Light to shine through
it, we ask His blessing upon it as we present it to

THE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING
It's not the wood, the bricks, or space
That we students Iearn to Ioveg
But it's the Vision of the Master's face,
The touch from heaven above.
It's not the room in which we stay,
Nor the new friends that we meetg
But fellowship with jesus every day
That makes this place so sweet.

THE SEA OF LIFE
I picture life as a vast sea,
Witli man billowing the foam
In a ship made by the pilot,s own hand
Sailing forth to his beautiful Home.
Many storms arise on the sea of life,
Not all is fair and smooth,
The waves dash high, and the winds sweep low,
As the strength of the ship they prove.
That beautiful port for which I sail
Is dear old "Home Sweet Homef,
Let us all aim for this port
Lest our ship be wrecked, while we roam
There are signal lights along the way
To guide us through the night,
So when we reach "The Shadow of Death"
We will still be covered by His blessed light.
Dear friend, tonight is your ship roaming
Ruthlessly, on the sea of life?
Or have you encountered the dangers
That come by sailing in strife?
Take God as your mighty Pilot
I-Ie'll guide you safely through,
No other pilot knows the way
No other pilot is so true.
Then when evening bell has tolled,
And sun has set for you,
Friends left behind will comfort
Because your ship was sailed safely through.

Izzflzlwzce is controlling power quietly exerted, an agency, force, or ten-
dency of any kind which affects, modifies, or sways.
To exist is to exert influence. By no act or determination of ours can we
stop this force. God said to Job, "Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Plei-
ades?" We might just as well try to prevent the stars shining as to endeavor to
keep our lives from affecting others.
There is no such thing as a negative influence. Wfe are either a blessing or a
blight to those around us. God has entrusted to us the power to draw others to,
or away from Him, and we must render an account to Him as to how we use
Influence is two-fold, willful and unconscious. There is a willful influence
exerted by many people who do all in their power to oppose God,s work, but as
true children of God we ought to make a conscious effort to exert an influence
which will be uplifting to man and glorifying to God. Those of the world ex-
pect it of us and are looking to us to do it.
Sometimes God thrusts some person into our sphere of influence that we
may win him to Christ. Jesus wants us to do some kindly deed, speak some word
which will win the affections of the wanderer to Him. If we have been so busy
with temporal things that we are not prayed up and filled with the Spirit, we
are not in a position to help needy souls. Because of our unfaithfulness some
soul may go into eternity without God.
We exert influence of which we are not conscious. The way we act, the
things we say all cause some reaction in someone else. If we are careless in our
service to God, another will be careless also. On the other hand if we are living
close to God, others will long to know Him better. No doubt we would be
surprised if we could know just what kind of influence we are exerting. Unless
we have the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives we will not be the successful
soul-winner God would have us be.
Throughout the making of this yearbook our prayer has been that its in-
fluence may be far-reaching. All who have helped to make this publication pos-
sible have workecl with the desire that God may be honoured through the uplift
received by each one who reads it. O. M. F.

TO THE CLASS OF NINETEEN
HUNDRED AND THIRTY-TWO
You are about to join those who have already gone forth from our midst,
to all parts of the world, to carry the l'I.ight of Life" to those who are still
in the darkness of sin.
As you go, bear in mind, that you are not thrown upon your own re-
sources, for we read: "God, who commanded the light to shine out of dark-
ness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the
glory of God in tht face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earth-
en vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us."
God is using His consecrated children as vessels, in which He deposits
thc l'Unsearchable riches of Christ." His light and life, His love and power,
His grace and truth, His glory and rest, and all else that He is and possesses-
for He gives Himself to us, that through us He might manifest Himself
to othersg and by doing so He might bring all who will heed His tender voice,
into the same relationship that we enjoy.
Always bear in mind that the Great Commission, "Go ye therefore,
and teach all nations," is the greatest mission entrusted to us. Then never
lose sight of the great promise, "Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the
end of the world."
As He said unto Abraham, so He says to us also, "I am thy shield, and
thine exceeding great reward." XVhat security!! What reward!!
Then with implicit conhdence in His unfailing faithfulness, carry the
light and sow the "Precious seed" in whatever part of His great field He
may send you, for He says, "They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He
that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come
again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him."
We shall follow you in prayer.

Important in any institution of learning is its staff of teachers. So great is
the influence exerted upon impressionable minds by men and women of this
profession that Christian young people interested in obtaining Biblical knowl-
edge and insight, always desire to know the excellency and attitude of the in-
We, who have the privilege of being at the Bible Institute, know that our
teachers are aware of the opportunity which is theirs in helping to mould lives
for the service of Jesus Christ. By their conduct is indicated their realization of
a solemn responsibility toward God.
The instructors uncover the hitherto hidden treasures of God's Word. Con-
sequently, what God says has become the focus of each student's life. The foun-
dation of the teaching given us is the Rock of Salvation. Emphasis has been plac-
ed upon Christianity as a life in contrast to mere dead formalism. The Bible is
considered the basis of Christian doctrine and God, its author, the source of spir-
itual life. His Son, Jesus Christ, is lifted up as the Lamb of God who taketh away
the sin of the World. Redemption complete is possible only through the Holy
Spirit who is our supreme director.
' In accordance with the teaching of the Bible that we are to be the light of
the world, there has been stressed the necessity of taking the Gospel to others-
of giving as well as receiving. Thus spiritual stagnation is avoided and God af-
forded an opportunity to pour in fresh blessings.
Of vital significance is the personal interest of each faculty member in the
life of every student. There has always been manifested a warm and responsive
readiness to help each one of us solve his spiritual questions or other problems
confronting young people.
Our gratitude rises to God for the concrete example of Christian character
and life exhibited in each teacher. May God continue to use them as instru-
ments of light in His hand for the equipping of other laborers for the whitened
harvest. R1-IODA LEHMAN.
"Fear God mm' zvorfz fJarz1."-Dariil Lirizlgsfoue.
This is the motto of our faithful workers, whose lives are imbued with the presence of
Him whom they serve and love with an undivided heart.
Our generous Business Manager, Mr. P. L. Eicher, takes excellent care of our money. He
knows the kind of food we like here at the Bible Institute.
The matron, Mrs. Bertha Lugibihl, Whom all of us know as "Mother" is an ideal of a
lovely saint of God, radiating Christian grace continually through patience and love.
Our food is well prepared by Miss Melvinn Basinger. She is not only a good cook but a
great spiritual help to us all.
Miss Sophia Pauley, who has charge of the dining-room, proves to us that 'lcheerfulness
in religion makes all its services come off with delight."
Our President's wife, Mrs. E. Ramseyer, is never too busy to share in our trials or joys.
Miss Merle Gaskill is Il calm business-like woman in her sphere as bookkeeper and English
Miss Rhoda Roth, as the office girl, can be depended upon to perform her every task.
Humbly and quietly, Mr. Harvey Winkler, the caretaker, Hklls his office by working tire-
lessly and conscientiously from morning until night.

"XVrite the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it." Habak-
kuk did not say, as some suppose, that he may read that runzzeth. The writing was to be made
plain upon the tables in order that the person who reads the information may in turn convey it
to others. The most effective and diligent witnesses for our Lord Jesus Christ are those who,
after being born again, by diligent study come to know the content of the divine message. The
purpose of preparation is that he who reads may run, and be able to give a reason of the hope
that is within him.
Since the Post Graduate classes have been small, both the students and teachers have been
brought into close contact. The spirit of God has hovered over us and kept our hearts open to the
truth. The course in Christian Philosophy has fortified us against destructive skepticism. We often
became so interested that we were loathe to leave the class room. Christian Ethics dealt with the
sources and principles of the Christian ideal in contrast with the humanistic theories. The latter
part of the semester was spent in applying these standards to the complex problems of life. The
class in Scriptural Holiness has given us a comprehensive View of God's plan for our sanctification.
Missions has been a very practical and benehcial study for acquainting us with the correct princi-
ples and methods in world evangelism.
Truly we can say, after studying the Post Graduates' subjects, we are able to "run" more
intelligently and successfully. We praise God also for the spiritual blessings, as well as the deep-
er aspiration to a higher, nobler, fuller life. Upward to heaven! nearer to God!

"TO DO THY XVILL, O GOD" LIGHT
We, the Class of 1932, have chosen this as our motto because it is the purpose and desire of
our hearts. Our wills have been yielded to God and we are ready to do anything, go anywhere,
and be anything He would desire.
"Wi1l', means the faculty of the mind by which one chooses or determines, or it means de-
sire. In the will of God we have the highest expression of His perfection. Creation owes its be-
ing and beauty to it-it is the manifestation of God's will. For this man was created with a free
will in order that he might have the power to choose of his own accord to do Godis will. But
lo! man sinned by doing his own will rather than God's.
jesus came to this world to bring us back to doing God's will. He gave Himself a sacrifice
to win for us the power to live and do the will of God.
"Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God." These words uttered through the Holy Spirit by one
of His prophets long before Christys birth are the key to His life on earth. Wfherever He went
this inspired Him--the will of the Father was to be accomplished in Him and by Him. He has
given to us the power to consecrate ourselves entirely to God's will. If we are to follow Christ
we must speak His words as ours, "I seek not my own will but the will of the Fatherf,
The only business of our lives should be to learn and to do the will ol' God. He wants ro
make it known to us. He desires that we work out His will through our wills. Our wills
are to be merged in Christ's, voluntarily brought into accord with His, so that we do glad-
ly and heartily the things He would have us do. Our prayer should be "Our wills are ours to
make them thinef'
The divine will settles everything of duty. When we know surely what our Master would
have us do there is no longer the question as to what we should do. All we have to do is to obey.
When Jesus told Peter to let down the nets, he replied unhesitatingly, "At thy word, I will."
We must be prompt in our obedience to God's will. His word must be supreme authority for us.
The best human wisdom is fallible and may easily be mistaken. Even those who love us mayferr
in the counsel they give.
Our God never errs in judgment. He is never mistaken in His decision as to what we ought
to do. We are sure His commands are both right and wise. It may seem to us that the course
which He asks us to take can lead only to disaster, but He knows best. We may always safely
say, "At thy word, I will." We need never question. Who are we that we could know better
than God what is best for us?
God's way does not always lie in the sunshine. We may find ourselves facing obstacles and
difficulties but still be in His way. He leads us many times away from the path we would have
taken. He may ask us to do some lowly task when we think we could do more good and make
more out of our lives if we could get out into a wider sphere and have greater things to do. But
let us remember that the way to be ready for the call to a wider field is to a little more than fill
the place in which we are now serving. No matter how small the place v'e fill, it is a glorious thing
to do God's will.
We must surrender our preference and accept His. God's will may not call us always to
activity. Sometimes they serve Him best "who only stand and waitf' One writes, "No time
of seeming inactivity is laid upon us by God without a just reason." We have only one thing
to do-to yield to His plan. It may mean the setting aside of cherished plans, the giving up of
things that are dearest to us, a life of pain and suffering but in any case it is ours to obey with-
God's will for us is found in His Word, which is said to be a lamp unto our feet, not a great
sun shining high in the heavens, illuminating a hemisphere, but a little lantern that we may carry
and hold so its light shall fall on the road on which we are walking. It will not lighten a whole
mile for us at a time but will make the next step clear and so on until we have gone the last
mile of the way. A SENIOR-
Tl-IE CLASS OF l93Z
Surely we, the class of '32 do praise the Lord for His bountiful grace manifested toward
us in the short time we have been privileged to spend here at the good old Bible Institute. As we
draw near the close of our School year we look back with regret upon the many minutes and
hours wasted-time which could have been much more prohtably spent in prayer to our Heavenly
Father or in the reading of His Word. How many times have we failed to take advantage of
the opportunities for service which have been presented to us!
And yet, our hearts are made to rejoice when We think of all the Lord has done for us.
Our hearts go out in gratitude to Him who has set us free from the clutches and snares of
the Evil One. He gave His all for us. He suffered and died on Calvary for us that we might have
life through His blood. We never will be able to repay Him for all He has done for us, but
the least we can do is to surrender ourselves entirely to Him. He alone can make out of these
worthless lives channels of blessing, carrying the blessed XVord of Life and Light to many who
are groping blindly in heathen darkness.
Space does not permit us to recount separately the many different experiences of the mem-
bers of the class. Some in early youth, although not out in sin like others, felt the need, cona
fessed their sins, and with simple child-like faith, accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their own
personal Savior. '
Several more, in spite of a background of sound teaching and godly example, resolved to
"enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season". Finally, like the prodigal son, they came to themselves
and returned to the Father, who forgave and abundantly pardoned them.
One of our number was considered the "black sheep" of his family and wandered far away
from the Lord, but the Good Shepherd, who gave His life for His sheep, brought him back to
the fold. After several years in college, during which time what little faith he had was shatter-
ed, he found himself at the Bible Institute, the last place on earth he expected to be. Needless
to say, it was not long until he was gloriously saved. How wonderful to note the grace of God
as manifested in his life!
Another proved that a person can be a church member and at the same time a Hbootleggerl'
and the vilest of sinners. After repeated attempts to reform himself, he gave it up as a hopeless
task and called upon God for mercy. His life was immediately transformed. Old things had
passed awayg behold, all things had become new.
Still others were drawn to the Lord by observing the lives of faithful Christians. A desire
to be like them led to a deep hunger which could only be satisfied in Jesus, the Bread of Life.
Oh, that our lives might be so filled with the love of God that others might be drawn to Him
and Hnd peace and rest!
God has indeed been good to us in giving us an opportunity of coming to a place where we
may better prepare ourselves for His service. Sacrifices have had to be made, and the future has
not always looked bright and rosy, but He has always been true to His promise, "I will never
leave thee nor forsake thee."
While receiving these many blessings from the hand of the Lord, we are not unmindful
of our duty to those who have not been so fortunate as we. In obedience to the "Go ye into all
the world", over half the class are looking toward the far-distant harvest fields of the world.
Several have been called to evangelistic work here in the homeland, while the remaining ones
are ready to go anywhere He leads.
As the true commencement of life's service begins and the time draws near when we shall
be separated from one another, may we as a class press forward in our Master's service, spread-
ing the glad tidings wherever we go, until that glad day when we shall see Him face to face and
hear His "Child, well done".

"Semi the Iiglrf, Ibn' blrsserl Gospel light,
Let it shine from shore to sbore.
Sem! the Iigbf, the blessed Gospel light,
Le! if sbine forever more."
With this thought in mind our class of forty-seven Juniors came to Fort Wfayne in the
fall of 1931. Everyone of us h:1d been called out of darkness into the marvelous light of God.
Then because we realized the need of preparation to fit into God's great plan, we came to the
The new environment occasioned a feeling of strangeness which was soon replaced by joy-
fulness and thanksgiving to God for the privilege of attending the school. We joined in the
spirit of Christian fellowship which was so vitally sensed. Before long all strangeness had left
and we felt at ease. Those who had not given everything over to God eventually yielded all to
Him and came into the experience of the fulness of His blessing.
The first days of school can be vividly recalled. Registration was completed and our new
places of abode arranged by the evening of September 16. Mrs. Lugibihl and Mrs. Ramseyer
with the other workers made us feel welcome.
Outside of some Bible stories and a few Scripture passages our knowledge of Godis Word
was very meager. Our Erst lessons and all following ones directed our attention to the vast
resources of His unsearchable riches. Praise God! He is faithful! XVhen we are open for light
He gives it to us. He has illuminated the Scriptures until His Word is much more precious to
us now than ever before. Some passages have become real gems because they have been translated
into our own experiences.
On Friday evening at the first Mission Band Service, we listened to a message from a man
of God. Thereafter our zeal for these services was kept kindled to a glow. Through definite
revelations of the Lord's will our determination to go all the way with Him was continually
Some of us soon came to recognize the unwritten as well as the written rules. It was some
time before we could understand that all were for our good. In the future we shall appreciate
them more and will praise God for the lessons in obedience than are more acceptable than sac-
rifice. To live with others unto edification requires a wholehearted cooperation springing from
a glad heart of love. In preparing to do any work for the Lord a harmonious spirit must be

He has implanted svithin- us a love for the lost, our desire is to see the wandering ones confess
their sins to Jesus and be washed in His blood. We, having presented our bodies a living sacrifice
to God, are willing to be used in any way He sees best. We'll trust Him though we cannot see the
path through which He leads us.
"God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform." Testimonies of the indivdual
members of the class have verified this many times. We have learned His will through yield-
ing to Him. We have experienced His constant blessing by walking in the light of His Word.
Watching others develop spiritually and rejoice in the Lord has encouraged our hearts and
created Within us a hunger for more of God. "Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after
righteousness for they shall be filled."
May God abundantly bless each member of the Class of 1933 and keep him in the narrow
Way until Jesus comes. '

In obedience to the call of God and through varied providential leadings, there was brought
together a group of Fifteen students to the Bible Institute in September, 1931. Coming from
many different backgroundsg some from the noise and bustle of the city, others from behind the
plow handles of God's green out-of-doors, we are reminded afresh that God is no respecter of
persons. Cur common purpose in assembling here is to receive a training adequate for our life's
The classes of that Brst day left us rather bewildered, but continual concentration brought
us out all right on examination day. Since that first day we truly thank God for our teachers,
who by "line upon line and precept upon preceptl' have taught us knowledge that will help us
in our future work for the Lord.
In this Preparatory Course we, as its students, will never forget rhe special emphasis placed
upon the important subject of English. From one angle the Course calls attention to the study
of reading the Scriptures in public, from another the way to overcome faulty spelling and con-
veyance of thought. On the Grammar road by our grit and determination, we often ascend one
hill of difficulty, only to find a steeper one looming up ahead of us. Nearing the goal by steady
progress comes our themes both oral and written from which we have derived much help in more
effective speech and writing.
To balance this course of English there is a course in Synthetic Bible. This class is a real
source of inspiration and gives to us a panoramic vi:w of the Bible.
As we look back on the yesterdays we truly thank God for His Holy Spirit who has guided
us in all our studies. For the tomorrows in the Bible Institute we anticipate higher realms of
grace, for, according to the wise man, "Better is the end of a thing than the beginning."

SPECIAL TUDEN S I-'GBT
H111 My Iigfaf slmll we see light."
The Bible Institute offers to entrants an opportunity of choosing a special course of study.
The subiects may be selected from the Bible, Music and Preparatory courses.
Each year among the applicants are those who find it necessary to arrange courses apart
from the graduate courses. For those whose education has been limited, the Preparatory course
is advisable and also required for entry into the Junior class. However, because of lack of time
and various other reasons, some find it profitable to resort to a special and rather compact line
of study. Another class of special students are those entering late in the year. They select a
special group of subjects until the following semester, when the regular courses may be pur-
sucd. There are also residents of the city who Find it impossible to attend day classes but grasp
the opportunity of attending evening sessions.
The advantages of special courses are manifold. The privilege of taking any subject offers
the opportunity of mingling with all the students and teachers. The spiritual uplift received
thereby is of priceless value.
Our object as special students is the gaining of that knowledge and training for service so
necessary to answer the call of our Master. His supreme sacrifice on Calvary has given to this
helpless world a Gospel of good news. As recipients of His grace, having been transformed by
His power we are commanded to carry the good news of salvation to all nations. This commis-
sion carries with it a tremendous responsibility. It is certain that the future happiness and wel-
fare of men's souls depends on our faithfulness. We are debtors to all men. In the light of
these facts, let us ask God to help us keep our eyes ever fixed on the eternal goal and always
glorify Christ by winning many a wayward one to Him. The day is far spent and the night is
at hand, so we must hasten to do the bidding of our King. MELVIN KELLER.

"Lord, I bear of sbozwri of blessing
Thou rzrf scaffvring full and freeg
Showers the fbrisfy lima' refreshing,
Let some drops now fall on me."
This prayer from our hearts as students has not been unanswered, for God has poured out
His Spirit and met our longing heart cry for refreshings from the throne above. Men who
knew God came our way in the fulness of the blessing and in the richness of His grace. They
were used as channels through which God poured out His Spirit upon us.
The lectures by Rev. Forman Lincicome, Gary, Ind., were used of the Lord to establish and
ground our hearts in the faith. The morning addresses for the chapel hour included the dif-
ferences, dangers, difficulties, and development of the Christian life after sanctification. Many
Christians have cast away their confidence in the Lord because they knew not how to meet the
enemy when he assailed them. Some are hindered in growth after sanctification because of fail-
ure to take into consideration differences in personality.
The Bible speaks of four kinds of perfection, absolute which applies to God, angelic which
angels enjoy, the perfection Adam and Eve possessed, and Christian perfection. Difhculties are
often removed when we realize that we are not exempt from mistakes which come from the
head. As we walk in the spirit we are free from the condemnation of sin. Wfe have both moun-
tain top and valley experiences, but looking to Jesus we are kept well balanced. Satan works in
the realm of feelings, but God works in the realm of faith.
Rev. Jacob Hygerna, formerly a teacher in the school, was with us in December. The
anointing of the Lord was upon him as he gave out of the fulness of his heart and richness of
his experience very helpful and encouraging messages from the gospel as recorded by John. Jesus
had perfect confidence in the law of sacrifice for fruitfulness and give himself willingly. When
our lives are yielded to God then the divine life reproduced in us is filled with fruitfulness. ln
every step Jesus took, He was revealing God.
Rev. Paul Thomas, former President of the Colorado Springs Bible School, was with us at
the beginning of the second term. His experience as a Christian educator enabled him to appre-
ciate our difficulties and problems. His sermons were used by the Holy Spirit to reveal and
bring to light things that were hidden or forgotten, which needed to be forgiven and removed
before God could pour out His blessing upon us. ln order to have real revivals, which must be-
gin in God's people, all hindrances need to be removed. More Holy Ghost prayer meetings will
bring more Holy Ghost revivals. Every prayer in the Spirit will have an answer, but most
Christians know little of a Spirit-filled life. The abiding of the Holy Ghost is the answer to
every problem of lite, and is the secret of victory.
ln his closing message he presented the need of workers, not only across the ocean but
within our own borders. Our hearts burned within us. "Lord of harvest, send us forth as reap-
ers,', was the answer to the call.
John T. Morris, Baltimore, Maryland, an ex-lawyer whom rhe Lord saved and called to
preach the go-spel, spoke to us during the chapel periods of the two weeks he was in the city
engaged in a revival campaign. "Faith', was the theme of the addresses. The foundation of
our faith rests in the resurrection of jesus Christ. Faith is farsighted and is able to take from
God. Real faith works.
"There is often a big difference between the view men want of Jesus and the view He
wants them to have of Him." This is a statement from Rev. Paul Rees of Detroit, Michigan,
who was with us from April -1-th to 6th, 1932. The two siftings of Peter was the theme of the
second message. On Tuesday evening Mr. Rees based his sermon on Christls message to the
church of Ephesus, 'I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love." The
Wednesday evening discourse, the last of the series, was on the will of God and our relation
thereto, MARY HOKE.
L I G I-IT
, STUDENTS MISSION BAND
The Mission Band is a student organization to promote an active interest in missionary
conditions and to arouse holy zeal that will result in earnest intercession, the giving of money,
and sacrificing of self.
The meetings, held in the chapel of the Administration Building every Friday night, are
in charge of student officers. At nearly every meeting the room has been filled with students
and interested friends. In thesc services there is a spiritual vigor which is uplifting and an en-
thusiasm Which is contagious. The speakers are evangelists, Christian workers, or returned mis-
sionaries. Representatives from India, China, Africa, Mexico, and South America have poured
out their hearts to us in earnest plea for those in the darkness of heathendom. On three occa-
sions the missionary need was made especially vivid by stereopticon views.
These services have been an impetus in the broadening of our vision. Lives have been deep-
ened spiritually, hearts have been gripped to intercede for the lost, and some have heard God's
call to follow Him to dark corners of the earth. Our selfish desires have faded away in view
of the need of the lands across the seas.
While in preparation and training for the Lordis work, we have a representative in Peru,
Clayton D. Steiner, supported by our prayers and offerings. He, with his wife, has spent three
years of faithful labor under the Christian Missionary Alliance Board. They are now on furlough.
With eagerness have we listened to both Mr. and Mrs. Steiner tell of Godls workings among the
hinterland Indians at Cahuaoanas and the people of the mountain towns. We were made to re-
joice and marvel at the dealings of the Holy Spirit, in those hearts veiled by ignorance, super-
stition, and the very power of darkness. Praise God! the Light penetrates these benighted hearts
and dispels the awful darkness and sin. Mr. Steiner and his family are expecting to sail again for
Peru in early June. Let us follow them in prayer.
Because of our indebtedness to God and responsibility to our needy fellowmen, we ought
to give out the light of the Gospel which God let shine upon us. Jesus left this challenging
command: "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creaturef' Dare we be
heedless to these words while the Christless multitudes are perishing? Today there are more
heathen than at the beginning of modern missions. "Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from
the dead, and Christ shall give thee light." Jesus said, UI am the Light" .... "Now are ye
light." Let us send out the light. God keep us faithful!
May the following sentiments-be experiential:
"Stir me, O stir me, Lord, I care not how:
But stir my heart in passion for the world:
Stir me to give, to go, but most to pray,
Stir till the blood-red banner be unfurled
O'er lands that still in heathen darkness lie,
O'er deserts where no Cross is lifted high.
"Stir me, O stir me Lord, till all my heart
Is filled with strong compassion for these souls,
Till thy compelling 'must' drives me to prayer:
Till Thy constraining love reaches to the poles.
Far North and South, in burning deep desire:
Till East and West are caught in love's great fire.
"Stir me, O Lord! Thy heart was stirred
By love's intensest fire, till Thou didst give
Thine only Son, Thy best-beloved One,
E'en to the dreadful Cross that I might live:
Stir me to give myself so back to Thee
That Thou can'st give Thyself again through me.
L I G H T
"The C'1lfl'!1lIl'0 of Hay words gizfefb liglltf'
This portion from Godls own Word has been verified again and again, not only in the dark
heathen lands of Africa, India, and China, but right here in this so-called Christian land of ours.
It has been the gracious privilege by means of song and testimony for some of the students
to carry the "good news" of salvation and to watch the work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts
of those who were "dead in trespasses and sins." Every effort is repaid many times over by
seeing faces which were sad and downcast light up with the joy of the newly found peace.
The primary interest of these teams has always been-and we hope it will always be-the
advancement of Christ's kingdom through the salvation of souls. The endeavor is to link up
the spiritual fervor and enthusiasm of the students with the needs of churches.
Our regularly organized groups this year are six in number, two ladies' quartettes, three
male quartettes, and a brass quartette. From the members of these groups other combinations
are formed, such as solos, duets, and trios. Besides the singers, a few of the students are asso-
ciated with the teams in the capacity of speakers.
This year the teams have engaged in services as far away as Peoria, Tllinoisg Detroitg Milwau'
keeg Clevelandg Port Huron, Michigan: Elkhart, Indianag and New Carlisle, Ohio.
The scope of the teams' influence is broadened by the marvel of radio. Some of the quar-
tcttes or their individual members have been privileged to participate in numerous broadcasts
over WOWO through the courtesy of the Gospel Temple and the First Missionary Church of
Churches of some twenty denominations, besides several city missions and tabernacles were
served during the year. Oftentimes a team was called upon to assist in jail services and shop
meetings, which are in charge of the City Rescue Mission. and the local Y. M. C. A. A visit to
the city jail makes us appreciate the work of grace in our own hearts and gives us- a keener de-
sire to spread the Gospel light.
Each team is placed under the careful instruction of a talented coach who arranges system-
atic practice and emphasizes correct interpretation.
The administration of the Gospel teams is largely in charge of Rev. S. A. Witmer. He
issues the assignments and adiusts the personnel of the teams to meet the requirements of the
The Lord is to be praised for His marvelous protection over the teams. No trip is ever
begun without first invoking God's blessing and guidance. There is no doubt that He has heard
and answered, for never, since Gospel team work began, has there been a single fatality though
thousands of miles have been traversed.
Prayer is undoubtedly the most vital factor in successful Gospel team work. Perhaps the
most interesting and most helpful part of many of the trips has been the time spent in prayer in
behalf of the services.
There follows in part the interesting, though a little unusual, experience of one of the quar-
tettes in the early part of the year, which fitted them for a greater service later:
"The church was cold, literally and spiritually, and the people were few. We were told
they would be fewer in the evening. It was hard to sing that morning and harder to preach.
After the service the students were conscious of a need of prayer, and so shortly after din-
ner they slipped off to a secluded spot and gathered about a log. The Holy Spirit was faithfully
present and soon confessions were made one by one and Bible promises were searched out to fit
each special need.
The report continues: Promises just flooded our hearts wirh a hunger to talk with God
about it all. First, our own souls were revived and then, real intercession for the church began.
Oh, how God blessed us there! The church was nearly full that night. Song and testimony
went forth with joyous liberty. The Holy Ghost was there in convicting power and ......
the message of salvation went forth to the people." LAWRENCE SCHOENHALS-
SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHING
"These lbings frurb and rxbortf'
The students of the Bible Institute, especially those who have Sunday School classes to teach,
look forward to the one day of the week when they can meet with their scholars.
Sunday morning about nine o'clock the signal bell sounds, announcing that the school bus
is ready to leave. Some students go in the bus, others go in automobiles or take the street car,
while still others walk to their places of appointment. XVe praise God that He has considered us
worthy of carrying the blessed news of salvation and of teaching the Word which gives light
NVe teach the truth as it is presented in God's Word, and much prayer goes up to the throne
of grace. Never does a group of teachers leave the campus without Hrst looking to God for
His protection and the guidance of His Holy Spirit.
In addition to teaching classes in the churches of and near the city, students of the Institute
have been used of God in conducting Sunday Schools in missions. Through the children attend-
ing these classes the light of the Gospel has brightened many homes where the Word of God
was little known. Parents who might never have been saved have been brought to know Jesus
through their little ones' carrying home some precious truth taught them.
A Sunday School is conducted by a group of sixteen students at the County Children's
Home. Classes are taught in each department of this institution, and worship and prayer serv-
ices are held at the close of the lesson study. In this way we reach over a hundred children
whose hearts are yet tender and responsive to the truth. Many have been lcd to seek and End
the joy of sins forgiven. We as teachers realize that it means not only a soul saved but a life
saved when one of these little ones finds God. Wfe long that all may find the Saviour before
they get out into the highways and byways of sin and become ensnared by the Devil. That
God will call some of these children to be missionaries or preachers, we are convinced. The de-
sire to do such work has been expressed by some of those who have found that it is sweet to serve
Jesus. One boy who was saved about a year ago has been a real missionary among the children
of the Home. Many of those who know him have testified to the fact that he is a "real Chris-
tian". God has proved His power to save and to keep in the lives of these girls and boys.
Jesus said, "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not." LUELLA MILLER.
"Anil Ibn Lord mill ufzfo fbe serzfanf, Go out into fbc highways aml bezlges:

One aim of the Institute is to give to its students service in training and training in service.
On Saturday evenings, the weather permitting, street meetings are conducted by the student
body at the city court house square. Herein is afforded the opportunity for each one to witness
for his Lord.
These informal services are usually fruitful. One student is appointed as leader, to direct
the proceedings of the meeting. Those who play instruments furnish the accompaniment while
the rest join in the singing of Gospel songs until a crowd has gathered. Opportunity is then
given for students to give testimonies of how God saved them. At intervals special quartette
or duet numbers are sung. The leader then follows with a lively sermonette and a plea for in-
dividuals to forsake and confess their sins and turn to God.
Those who wish personal help are urged to make it known by an uplifted hand. The service
is then closed by a brief prayer, and those who manifest a need are dealt with by individual
Among those who receive bright experiences of pardon for sin are aged salesman, fathers
and mothers, young people, and even the tattered, dirty-faced newsboys. Jesus died for them all.
There will be many tears of joy in glory because of souls who found the Savior on the
street corner in these student services. EDISON HABEGGER.
HALF DAYS OF PRAYER
"He went ..... apart fo pray."
What an impressive view is disclosed to us as we see Jesus putting the cares and burdens of
this world aside while He goes apart to pray. He came to do His Father's will, wherefore He
must needs spend time with Him. In spite of the people thronging about and seeking His help,
Jesus withdraws to be with His Father.
"Alone with God, the world forbidden
Alone with God, Oh blessed retreatg
Alone with God and in Him hidden
To hold with Him communion sweetf'
If Christ, the holy Son of God, needed the strength derived from such fellowship, how much
more do we. For this reason one day in every month is set apart during which all classes are dis-
missed so that both faculty and students may gather in the chapel to spend the forenoon in prayer.
The purpose of these special half days of prayer is to intercede for others, and to press on
into greater realms of God's grace and love. Sometimes students come into the service feeling
rather down-hearted and out of victory but go out more than conquerors for having been in
touch with Him. Others come with burdens almost too heavy to bear, but after laying them
at His feet, they too go on their way with victory, and rejoicing. Many are the petitions which
are carried to the throne of grace in these prayer services, including those for the salvation of
never dying souls, the sanctification of believers, and the healing of those who are afflicted in
body. Neither do we forget to pray for those who have gone out ahead of us and are now
giving their lives to Him in service both here and in the foreign lands, The joys and blessings
bestowed upon the Bible Institute family during these heart-stirring and heart-searching times
are such that can only be obtained when we get quiet before God in meditation and prayer.
After these few short years of training have quickly passed by, and time Ends us out in the
world occupied with the task which He has given us to do, let us ever remember frequently to
put all earthly cares aside and fgo apartj to spend the day in prayer and communion with our
Lord. RUTH NEUENSCHXVANDER.
THE FIVE O'CLOCK PRAYER MEETING
"Prayer 'mowr fbc' band tba! mover flue lllIil'67'Sl'.u
While God's children are on their knees in believing prayer, He is doing that which they
are asking. Jesus assured us that "all things whatsoever ye ask in prayer, belierilzg, ye shall
The Bible Institute places special emphasis upon prayer. No true service can evolve without
it. The students, therefore, apart from the scheduled devotional periods, spend the half hour
before supper in intercessory prayer.
The girls meet in Bethany Hall and the boys in the Administration building for these five
o'clock sessions. The schedule is arranged so that all parts of the world are reached. Each leader
is appointed monthly for one night of the week. From missionary magazines or through direct
correspondence, he learns of answers to prayer, and of the new needs to be met. These he pre-
sents to the group.
The requests for prayer vary. Some are for the physical needs of the missionaries and
native workers, others for the abating of political disturbances, which hinder gospel work. The
greatest of all, however, are the pleas for the salvation of the lost and dying, so many of whom
have never heard even the name of jesus. "Neither is there salvation in any otherg for there
is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
That we pray much is the urgent plea of all foreign workers who come to us. They can
tell when the Christians at home are uplifting them to the throne of grace. What a responsibil-
ity is ours through prayer when we realize what a vast portion of the world is yet without the
Salvation of God. HELEN KELLER.
PILLARS OF WISDOM
"My people are rlesfroyml for lack of k11ou'ledge.,'
God said this when the children of Israel forgot to teach His law to- their children, and the
destruction of both children and parents resulted.
The purpose of the Bible Institute is to present the knowledge of the Truth to the students
in such a manner that they in turn may present the Living Word to a perishing world.
The Preparatory course furnishes a foundation for students who have not yet be--
come established in the fundamentals of Grammar, Orthography, and Rhetoric. English, studied
with the Bible, is far from obnoxious, and precious truths are built into the foundation.
Most students of today, however, have completed a high school education before they come
to the Bible Institute, and training begins at once with Synthetic Bible, and Bible History and
Geography. Blessing follows blessing as one goes to "In the Beginning God," and follows His grace
and power, book by book, through the Law, Poetry, Prophecy, Gospels, Epistles, down to the
General History furnishes the background for Church History and reveals how, in the past,
unknown to men, God has worked out His will through them. We learn not only the important
historical events but the greater truth that no matter how dark the hour, how great the apostasy,
God has always had a company of His own who kept alive the true faith.
The child of the church has always been missions, and a survey of their progress is studied
in "History of Missions." The Divine commission is so kept in the foreground that the study-
ing of statistics and learning of historical dates does not become burdensome.
The modernistic trend of the unsaved world impels us to search for the basis of our bc-
liefs and the proof char the Bible is the divinely inspired Revelation. These proofs may be
found in the study of Christian Evidences.
One may also study the origin and extent of the Canon and the preservation of its prin-
cipal manuscripts and versions. This study, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit settles once
and for all the doubts and puzzling questions of the student's mind.
The Bible itself is taught under the following divisions: Old Testament History and Proph-
ecy, Gospel and Acts, Church Epistles, Pastoral and General Epistles, Poetical Books and the
Apocalypse. This year we have feasted on the riches of the Revelation, Colossians, Isaiah, and
the Epistles to the Corinthians.
Since the New Testament was written originally in Greek a clearer interpretation of the
Wford is obtained by a study of this language. For those who are to labor in the lands afar,
French and Spanish are also taught.
How to lead souls to Christg how to do the pastor's work out of, as well as in the pulpit,
and how to teach children are problems discussed in the Service Courses. The art of conveying
the truth is acquired in Public Speaking and Homiletics.
Music is the aroma of glory and in order to attune us while we are yet here requires Rudi-
mcnts of Music fNotationj and General Chorus. In the Bible Music Course Sight-Reading, Con-
ducting, Harmony, Composition, Voice, Piano, and Teacher's Training are required.
This year a course in First Aid has been given which includes the study of Anatomy and
Physiology: First Aid Proper and the diseases peculiar to each mission field.
The "Cream of All" according to one student, is the Post Graduate Course. Scriptural
Holiness or Biblical Sanctification and Biblical Interpretation are studied. Missionary Principles
and Practices is a subject of profitable consequence. Non-Christian Religions offer conclusive
evidence that religions without Christ utterly fail to provide a personal Saviour who alone can
satisfy the human heart. Christian Ethics, with its application of the ideal to present problems
is also included.
The schedule, being exclusive as well as inclusive, promises to a world without Christ, a
well developed Christian, "Roasted and built up in Him and stablished in the faith."

TI-IE. LIGHTED LAMP
"Arise, xlrinr, for lby ligfal is come."
"The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light, they that dwell in the land
of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined." In many instances light and life
have been used as synonymous terms, and often, in human experience, light and darkness have
been a matter of life and death. The story is told of a trapper who in making his rounds one
night accidentally fell into one of his own traps, the jaws of which clutched one of his arms.
Wfhile thus held prisoner, he was attacked by panthers. XVith his one free hand he quickly
gathered together some dry leaves and moss, and by kindling a small fire, he held the animals at
bay until he was Finally able to disengage himself from the steel grasp. Light meant life to him
in his extremity. Satan holds the sinner in his cruel grip, but as the trapper put his hope in
the light of the fire, just so the sinner must look in faith to Christ for salvation. 'In him was
lifcg and the life was the light of men."
Even vegetation is dependent upon sunlight for the sustenance of life. As the sunflower
turns to the sun for natural life and light, the human soul likewise must turn to the Sun of
Righteousness for spiritual life and light. Israel, beset by serpents in the wilderness, found life
in a look. The World, beset by sin, will be given spiritual life only by looking to Christ.
The mariner depends upon light to direct him over the trackless ocean. With his sextant
he seeks guidance from the great celestial lights, for they are the only means by which he can
determine his position at sea. His safety depends upon the accuracy of this delicate instrument:
therefore, he handles it with care. The sun, moon, and stars are
no fear in placing his entire confidence in them, but he must be
ment aright. The light house service is also an indispensable

nity. The world would be without hope were it not for Him who said, "I am the light of the
world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." Those
who turn to the Light as the navigator turns to the heavenly lights, are saved from eternal
destruction. Faith must be exercised by both navigator and sinner before either can receive
help. Faith is an indispensable element in religion. "But without faith it is impossible to please
him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them
that diligently seek him." Christ is more trustworthy than the sun, moon, and stars. "That
was the TRUE light which lighteth every man that cometh into the world."
The light house is a type of the true church. God leaves His redeemed ones in the world
to warn the unsaved and to point them to the refuge which is Christ. "Ye are the light of the
world." In james 5:20 we are told that the supreme task of the church is to turn the sinner
from the error of his way. Satan would have every soul believe that sin is only a light matter,
that there is plenty of time to' prepare for eternity, but God's Word teaches that "the soul that
sinneth, it shall die". It warns too that "Now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation."
Conversion, then is the turning from darkness unto light. By so doing, the sinner is brought
into the way that leads to life eternal. As long as the soul follows the light he need have no
fear, for the Lord is His light and salvation. Christ has made ample provision for every man to
enter into this light. None need despair. The promise is to all who will follow, to all who will
look to Christ. K'For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as
children of light." "If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with
another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."

- TI-IE FILLED LAMP
All obstacles were diffused by grace. The abundance of it made afflictions change from
stumbling-blocks to stepping stones, sorrowing to rejoicing, poverty to wealth, fear to trust,
and life to life abounding. "Where sin did abound, grace did much more abound."
Saved by grace and dwelling in the secret place of the most High, leads us to the convic-
tion of the apostle: "For I am persuaded that neither earth, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities,
nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be
able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesusf, For "I am crucified with
Christg nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in mc: and the life which I now live in
the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."
Hid away with Christ in God, we are protected by the helmet of salvation, the breastplate
of righteousness, and the shield of faith which is able to "quench all the fiery dartsi' of the
enemy. Abiding under the shadow of the Almighty and covered there with His hand, nothing
can harm us, The Victor abides. Cainality is gone. Self is crucified. The death of the old
man allows the resurrection of the new, and the sinful Adamic nature gives way to holiness of
heart. "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God."
There is a way called "The way of holiness, the unclean shall not pass over it. XVho shall
ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in His holy place? He that hath clean
hands, and a pure heartg who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He
shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of His salvation."
The blessing will continue to flow as long as there is an unobstructed channel kept con-
stantly open by our all being laid upon the altar. Yielding our all to Him brings His all to us.
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed
to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what
is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God .... For this is the will of God, even your
sanctiiication, that ye should abstain from fornicationg that every one of you should know how
to possess his vessel in sanctiiication and honour .... For God hath not called us unto uncleanness.
but unto holiness."
To be carnal necessitates the continued confession, "that which I do I allow not: for what
I would, that do I not, but what I hate, that I do." What a discontented state it is in which
for a Christian to dwell-happy one day and discouraged the next, always desiring but never
achieving, weakening to yield instead of strengthening to stand. But God, through the power of
the Holy Ghost, graciously appeals to deliver us even from the tendency that makes us want to
sin. Hallelujah! "If We walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with
another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin," and sin shall no longer
Having our conscience purged, therefore, from evil works and cleansed from all sin, by
the baptism with the Holy Ghost, we become vessels "unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the
Master's use, and prepared unto every good work .... Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stcd-
fast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your
labour is not in vain in the Lord" and that "God is able to make all grace abound toward youg
that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work." Thus we are
"enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God"
through whose unspeakable gift: "is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification,
"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh
manifest the savour of His knowledge by us in every place."
Filled with all grace and peace because He who is "the author and finisher of our faith"
abides within, our very beings vibrate with the experience that "Joys are flowing like a river,
since the Comforter has come." NF-U-IE THUM-
TI-IE LIFE-GIVING LIGHT
Up jumped he for the first time, not only in years but in a life-time, for he had been an
imbecile from birth. No doubt his mother had wheeled him about while he was yet a lad, but
now that she had gone, he was placed in the hands of charity. There he remained but there he
did not rest. Discouraged by the many unavailing attempts to reach upward or push forward,
he lay hungering for light.
By three o'clock one afternoon, in keeping with daily routine, the cripple had been carried
to the temple and laid at the gate. Who should come along that day but Peter and John! The
opportunity was not to be lost. Seeing them about to enter the sacred enclosure, he asked for
alms. Peter, hearing the voice, looked, and looked again, focusing his gaze upon the suppliant
form. His heart was moved.
"Look on us," said Peter. Expectantly the humble petitioner gave heed. Surely his request
was to bear fruit! But lo, unexpected depression melted his courage when he heard the strong
man say, "Silver and gold have I none."
The apostles had no money, neither did the lame man, but here was a need to be met. Dis-
appointed, yet harboring hope, the disabled one looked with an eager and anticipating eye upon
the disciples. Surely he would receive something. Those godly men knew how to give.
"Such as I have, give I thee," said Peter. "In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise
up and walk."
"And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and
ankle bones received strength. And he leaped up, stood, and walked, and entered with them
into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him Walking
and praising God, and they knew it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the
temple and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him."
Of the quickly gathering multitude, Peter asked,-"Why marvel ye at this? or why look
ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?
"Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean," said a leper, falling at His feet.
"And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him." In his answer
we have expressed our Lord's never changing, "I WILL, be thou clean." How repeatedly His
will was materialized into actual experience and how often the multitude granted His request,
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Though sometimes great crowds surrounded Jesus, He never turned one away. Those that
followed, He received and "spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had
need of healing." By looking unto Him, the blind were made to sec, the deaf were made to
hear, the dumb to speak. The demoniacs were relieved of oppression and all the diseased were
It is this jesus with a heart so full of compassion for all the needy in body, mind, and soul,
that was crucified on Calvary. There He paid the debt we owed. His offering was once and
for all. He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows. He was beaten with stripes, smitten,
afilicted, "despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief." Every
need is met completely in the One who "Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknessesf'
Christ knows how to sympathize because He has been through all suffering. His atonement
covers not only sin, but the effects of sin-pain, physical agony and distress. He hung upon
the cross that the curse with all its ramifications might be removed from us. just as when He
dwelt on earth among men, so now His heart goes out to those who will come to Him, for He
is unchanged by the lapse of time.

TI-IE. INEXTINGUISHABLE LIGHT
"Looking for that blessed hope."
Dark indeed were the days in Israel when the prophets had ceased to speak and their be-
loved nation was passing into the hands of one nation after another. The prophets had said that
a Deliverer was coming, but when would God send Him? Had God forgotten the afflictions of
His people? Didn't He care? How they needed Him now! Alexander's great kingdom broke up
and God's people passed into the hands of first one and then the other of the Northern and
Southern kingdoms. Terrible massacres overtook them. Those who were true to the faith suf-
fered and died with those who no longer worshipped God from the heart. That little faithful
group was true, because God through the prophets had said that the Deliverer was coming, and
they believed it. He was to be the "Root and Stem" of Jesse, the government was to be upon
His shoulders, He was to be The Prince of Peace, The Counsellor, The Mighty God, and His
rule was to be a rule of peace, prosperity, and joy. To those who believed Godls Word these
promises brought hope even in the midst of terribly dark surroundings, for they knew that God
was faithful, and that the Light who was to lighten the Gentiles would appear.
Generation after generation appeared and passed on, but still He did not come. The heav-
ens were silent. God was not speaking to His people. However, "in the fulness of time" to shep-
herds in the fields God made announcement that a Savior 'who was Christ the Lord was born in
Bethlehem of Judaea. The wise men of the east saw and followed a guiding star to the place
where the Babe lay. Hope sprang into their hearts and light came into their expectant faces at
the thought of God's visiting His people again. They hurried to the place over which the star
rested, and finding there the Child and His mother, they cast their presents at His feet and wor-
shipped Him. Some days later Simeon, a devout man of God living in Jerusalem, came into the
temple in the Spirit and when he took the Baby in his arms he asked God to let him die, for he
had seen the Salvation of the Lord.
Twelve years slipped away and again this Child was seen in the temple, where He made the
learned men of the nation marvel at His knowledge of the things of God. Eighteen more years
passed in which time nothing was heard of this young Man living at Nazareth, so far as the na-
tion was concerned. The local district saw Him merely as the carpenter helping his father about
At the age of thirty John the Baptist was seen preaching in the wilderness, and the heart
of his message was, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at handl' and again, "but He that
cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He shall baptize you
with the Holy Ghost and with fire." The whole country was startled at the message of this
young preacher, and they demanded that he tell them who he was. He replied that he was the
"voice of one crying in the wilderness, make straight the way of the Lord." Every class of peo-
ple came out to hear him, and many repented of their sins and, believing on Him whom john
said was to come, were baptized. As John continued his ministry this Man of Nazareth also came
to him to be baptized. The ceremony was performed, the Spirit descended in the form of a dove,
and a voice from heaven gave witness that the one being baptized was God's Son. A little while
later John witnessed to the same by saying, "Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the
sin of the World." Many people after hearing these testimonies and seeing the miracles perform-
ed accepted Him as the One whom God had promised to send-The Messiah.
During the three years of His ministry which followed His baptism He touched thousands
of lives, ministering to the salvation for both soul and body. The common people flocked to Him,
and "heard Him gladly." He declared Himself to be the Son of God. The demons and evil spir-
its gave the same testimony. Peter affirmed Him to be "the Christ, the Son of the living God."
But the hypocritical ecclesiastics of the day, having a lop-sided knowledge of the Scripture, be-
cause their hearts had been darkened through sin, rejected Him as Israel's Deliverer. The self-
righteous mob said, "Away with this man, erucify Him." With their hands already stained by
the blood of many of the prophets in Israel, who had reproved them for their sins, they took
the Son "outside the gate" and crucified Him. There the crowd of enemies and friends saw Him
bruised and killed that we might have life and have it more abundantly.
For those who accepted Him as Israel's King, the days following His death were full of
darkness and sorrow. But after three days Mary Magdalene announced to Peter and John that
their Lord had arisen and that she had seen Him. Light and hope again sprang up in the hearts
of His followers. Their joy abounded when they were privileged to see Him with their own eyes
and more than once after His resurrection He appeared to His disciples and once to above Hve
hundred followers. At the close of the forty days after His resurrection He led His disciples out
to the Mount of Olivet, where, after giving some brief instructions, He was caught away in a
cloud and ascended into heaven. Oh, how the loss of His presence must have been keenly felt by
those who loved Him!
But before there was much time to calculate their loss, appearing close by were two men
in white raiment, who told them that this same Jesus who was taken up from them into heaven
would so come in like manner as they had seen Him go. Witli joy and gladness in their hearts
because of so great a Master whom they hoped soon to see again, they went back to Jerusalem to
continue in the temple praising and blessing God until the "Promise of the Father," about whom
Jesus had spoken to them, should be given. After the blessed Holy Spirit came, He made the
things which Jesus had spoken to His own real to them. Now with hearts filled with His love
and no longer slaves to carnal desires, doubts, and misgivings, they went everywhere under the
direction of the Spirit to tell the world that they had a risen Christ, and that men in all places
should repent and believe on Him in preparation for His return to rule and judge. After re-
ceiving a vision of Jesus the great apostle to the Gentiles soon joined the ranks of this new faith.
As a result of his marvelous experience, he went through Asia Minor, Greece, and Italy herald-
ing the news that we have a death-conquering, all-suificient Christ who is able and willing to
save, keep, and supply every need: and who is going to return to catch away those who have
believed on Him and who are loving Him and one another as He had given them commandment.
This great Gospel Light which spread so rapidly from that wonderful beginning has come
down to us through these nineteen hundred and thirty-two years-sometimes burning brightly
and again dimly. Every false cult conceivable has arisen to deny its claims, but the most pro-
found transformations have been accomplished in every land where it has gone. In these many
years which have passed since our Lord said He was coming again, the most aggressive parts of
the ever-dividing church have been groups which have expectantly looked for that promised re-
turn in their day.
Many, both in the church and outside, have scoffed and ridiculed the thought of His per-
sonal return, but, glory to God, He is coming again. NVe who love Him know it is true, because
He said so in His Word.
Today the whole world is in a chaotic condition with men's hearts actually "failing them
for fear" as they look at those things which are coming upon the earth. We are in the midst of
a world depression out of which are arising deplorable social conditions everywhere. Lawlessness
is rampant in our own America despite our many laws and executive forces. Money is in the
hands of the few at the expense of the many who are Without work, proper food, and living
conveniences-a condition which James said would be prevalent in the last days. Uames 5:1-61.
The church, because she has been unwilling to live the separated life and to pay the price to
have power with God and man, has fallen away in apostasy as Paul prophesied in II Thess. 2:3.
Because she has no Holy Ghost zeal and love she has no vision, and as a consequence, she is forc-
ed to retrench on every front. She no longer has a heart belief that the Lord is going to return
soon. In this condition she will be caught in the midnight hour when the cry is given, "Go ye out
to meet Him" having no oil in her lamp, only to have the door of the marriage hall closed bc-
fore the empty vessels can be filled. Oh! the loss of having failed to obey the commands, "Be
filled with the Spirit" and "watch and pray."
Daniel said that in the last days many would run to and fro and knowledge would be in-
creased. Wfe have seen these prophecies fulfilled in our day as at no other time in the history of
I. I G ll T
I. I G ll T
the world. Our Lord said the last days would be characterized by wars and rumors of wars, rel-
atives delivering each other up to death, and earthquakes in divers places. QMatt. 24.1
One has but to look at our daily newspapers to see that these things are being fulfilled as
never before. One wonders how it can be true with all of our police protection and internation-
al peace pacts, but the prophet Paul said that in an era of so-called peace and safety, then sud-
den destruction would come. The prophets said there would be a revival of the Roman empire,
and the world in our day has been amazed at the work Mussolini has done in Italy in the last
ten years, and marvels more at his statements of the proposed future for that nation. Again,
Amos, the prophet, said the jews would finally gather in their own land never again to be dis-
persedg and Isaiah as well as the other prophets witnessed to the same thing. Today we are watch-
ing the Zionist movement as it is aiding the jews in getting back to their own country and en-
couraging all the nations of the world to help them get there. God, in His great plan, which will
be especially wonderful for His own people in the future, is permitting some sections of the
world to carry out anti-Jewish plans which are encouraging the Jews to flee to their own home.
Ten years ago there were about eighty thousand Jews in Palestine, while today there are over
one hundred and seventy-five thousand. Jerusalem is being rebuilt, and the country as a whole
is taking on the characteristics of a national revival. More has been done by the people who
belong in that land toward reviving the nation than at any other time since the destruction of
Jerusalem in seventy A. D.
Oh, church of the triumphant, all-sufficient Christ, in view of many signs of His soon ap-
pearing, let us purify ourselves even as He is pure, and go out in the power of the Holy Ghost
to proclaim to a suffering world the matchless news that our Christ is a mighty Savior who is
able and willing to deliver from the guilt, the power, the effects, and the very presence of sin!
V Y Y
A LIGHT UNTO OUR PATH
"Thy Word is a lamp 1l71f0 my feet, and a light unto my path."
The word 'Bible' comes from the Greek word 'biblio'. The Bible is the Word of God. We
know it is inspired for we read in II Tim. 3:16, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." It is
made up of the Old and New Testaments. In the Old Testament the New is concealed and in
the New the Old is revealed. These two testaments are made up of sixty-six books, the authors
of which ranged from herdsmen and fishermen to royal poets and disciplined scholars. They
lived in different countries and in different periods of time. The range of composition is also
great, there being history, law, prophecy, poetry, epic and lyric, proverb, parable, epistle and
sermon. But all these are beautifully combined into the Book of books. The scarlet line of re-
demption runs through the whole, making it a unit. It begins with God and ends with man. In
Ps. 118:8, which is the middle verse, we see God and man brought together.
Christ is the key to this whole Book. Without Him all would be chaos, with Him all is
kosmos, beauty and order. God's great plan of redemption is revealed in the Scriptures. These
wonderful words have the power of bringing spiritual life into man's soul. They meet the needs
of every one, rich and poor, great and small.
Though the oldest book in the world, the Bible is the most up-to-date book. Men, kings and
emperors have tried to do away with it, but it still stands. It is perfect, lacking nothing. Not
one jot or one tittle of it shall fail until all be fulfilled.
"O Word gf God incal-nate, "We praise Thee for the radiance,
O Wisdom from on high, That from the hallowed page,
O Truth unchanged, unchanging, A lamp to guide our footsteps,
O Light of our dark sky! Shines on from age to age."
THE LIGHT WHICH SHINES FARTHEST SHINES
BRIGHTEST AT HOME
"Shall ut' whose souls are lighted with wisdom from on high,
Shall uv fo men beilzghlerl fhe lamp of life deny?
Salvation! O salzalimz! The joyful sounrl proclaim
Till earfh's remofcst nafion has learned Messiah's name."
I We all realize that crossing the- ocean to a foreign field will not make us missionaries. If we
cannot Win men and women to Christ at home and if we are ashamed of the Gospel when we are
among unbelievers here, we cannot expect to preach and witness fearlessly in China, India, Afri-
ca or any other foreign country. Let us depart from the glamour of romance that is usually
thrown on missionary work and get down to realities.
Of course, we as students of the Fort Wayne Bible Institute are expecting to use, in some
way, the training we are now acquiring. But are we making use of it now? Are we concerned
about our next door neighbor? We need to search our hearts to see whether or not our light is
shining everywhere we go, in every word we say, in every deed we do.
Jesus said, "I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life." John said, "God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all." The
Psalmist said, "The Lord is my light and my salvation." We know, therefore, that our light is
Jesus, shining through us. If we are without success in our work for Him there must be some-
thing in our lives veiling the light. Let us ask God to reveal thc cause by searching our hearts
and then humble ourselves in earnest penitence beseeching Him to apply the cleansing blood.
Perhaps we are not in connection with the power house. One Thursday night during an
exposition class, the electric power was intercepted, thus necessitating the use of a flashlight.
This was of no use without the battery, neither was the electric light without the dynamo. If
we expect to shine brightly in His service, we need first to receive the power by waiting on Him.
Vfc must then keep in continual vital contact with Him. Mr. Ramseyer says, "Nothing is so
beautiful to God as che upturned faces of His blood-washed children." and "People that are
spiritual are prayerful and people that are prayerful are spiritual." We need to experience the
fulfillment of the promise, "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall
mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not
If our lives are to count for Jesus we must take Him at His Word. Simple active faith is
necessary to keep us close to Him. A life "hid with Christ in God" cannot do otherwise than
exert a godly influence. "Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteous-
ness ..,.. He staggered not at the promises of God through unbelief, but was strong in faith
giving glory to God, and being fully persuaded that what He had promised He was able also to
Faithful Abraham was qualified to be a friend of God because he fulfilled his part of the
Lord's promise that "if ye do whatsoever I command you, ye are my friend." This type of friend-
ship demands obedience which intuitii ely generates faith-a faith that believes God to do the
seemingly impossible. One of the fruits of Abraham's believing is manifested in the successful
intercession for his nephew, Lot. To be real intercessors, therefore, requires that we, like him, be
a friend of God. Then upon our hearts can be thrust a burden which He, who bore all for us,
can trust us to pray through.
By letting your light shine before men, your family and friends at home will knew that
you are out and out for God. When Andrew found the Savior, he, "first findeth his own brother
Simon Peter .... and brought him to Jesus." The Samaritan woman at the well left her water-
pot and went into the city to tell her friends that she had found the Christ. The apostles were
told to witness in Jerusalem, at homey in all Judaea, the neighborhoodg in Samaria, the hostile
community, and then to the uttermost part of the earth. We need to be witnesses Wherever we
are. Then God can trust His light to go out, through us, to the whole world. VIVIAN BRUNER.
"I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was 110 one that would'
know me: refuge failed meg no -man careflg for my soulf,
This is a vivid picture of the world today, a lonesome place where selfishness and greed
dominate, making every citizen cry out in despair. "No man careth for my soul." God, how-
ever, has established places of retreat throughout the land where His missionaries and pilgrims
may stop to refresh their spirits, and where His wee lambs, students, may come to feed their
souls, strengthen their characters, and develop their minds for the task before them.
Truly, such a retreat is the Bible Institute, a place filled with the glow and warmth of fel-
lowship and with the radiance of divine light. There are special occasions when this is felt in
a definite Way. At Bethany Hall the last Saturday evening of each month, the girls gather around
the cozy fireside. The time is usually spent in testimony, prayer, and singing, after which a few
words are spoken by some of God's sainted women. The Saturday before Thanksgiving, Mrs.
Ramseyer related her happiest Thanksgiving, another evening Mrs. Morris, wife of Evangelist
john Morris, spoke of the necessity of a full consecration for success in God's work. One Satur-
day afternoon we sat tailor-fashion on the rugs around the fireside while Miss Beyerle gave us
a helpful talk. She testified to her call to Tibet, and showed us the material usually employed in
Kindergarten work, but which she found helpful in teaching object lessons to the women there.
Saturday and Sunday, there being no worship in the chapel, Mr. Ramseyer conducts a short
season of devotion in the dining room. These messages are rich in spiritual truth, well-seasoned
with grace, and very practical. We are made to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
The warmth of Christian love lifts our hearts to praise and thanksgiving followed by united
prayer for others.
Perhaps the most gratifying is the Monday evening service in the dining room. We students
have the privilege of forming a circle by pushing our chairs against the wall. True fellowship
ensues, our hearts being united by thc joy and strength of divine love. The teacher in charge
encourages freedom in the Lord and liberty in testimony and song. Mr. Leightner usually has a
season of lively testimonies refreshed by his keen comments, revealing his understanding of the
student heart. Mr. Smith, to the delight of the students, invariably asks Miss Keyser to preside
at the piano, and the boys to distribute hymn books. The good old songs are usually solicited.
Occasionally our souls are drawn heavenward by listening to Mr. Dwyer's violin solos. Some-
times the quartettes sing their Gospel songs.
One evening Mr. Witmer suggested that we spend ten minutes concentrating on the ac-
tual cost of salvation rather than on temporal blessings. Our hearts were incited to gratitude as
the students quoted Scripture verses witnessing to the price Jesus paid for us
This circle of friendship will keep growing till with Jesus we shall be glorified. In the new
heavenly home the glories of Christ's love will melt our hearts into a perfect and eternal fellow-
"That unchangeable home is for you and for me,
Where Jesus of Nazareth stands,
The King of all kingdoms forever is He,
And He holdeth our crowns in His hands.
"O how sweet it will be in that beautiful land,
So free from all sorrow and paing
With songs on our lips and with harps in our hands,

THE FELLOWSHIP CIRCLE IN TI-IE YESTERDAYS
At the meeting of the Board of the Fort Wayne Bible Training School on April 13th and
14th, 1916, a committee consisting of Messrs. J. E. Lauby, H. C. Thiessen, and B. F. Leightner,
was appointed to organize an association for the purpose of maintaining and promoting the fel-
lowship of students and workers of the school, both past and present, to deepen the interest in
the progress of the school, etc., -" thus reads the oificious record of the birth of this devoted
handmaiden, the Fellowship Circle. However, the minutes do not indicate in whose mind the
vision was conceived, nor do the terse "motions made, seconded, and passed" give but a skeleton
account of its subsequent activities. A record of that kind would need to include the experiences
of a missionary on a lonely post receiving the FELLOWSHIP CIRCLE BULLETIN from the hand of
a native carrier. Ere long he would be seen sitting in silent reverie, a flood of sacred associations
crowding into the center of consciousness, and pent-up emotions unrelieved by swallowing!
But to return to the dry record-the organization committee duly met and, assisted by
Rev. C. XV. Oyer and Rev. H. Allen, drew up a constitution, effected a temporary organiza-
tion, and provided for the first annual meeting, which was held May 18, 1916, at 7:30 P. M.
In the first meeting of the Circle "fifteen minutes were spent in testimonies that warmed
every student's heart," the keynote of which was "Boosting the Bible Training School." Rev. -I.
H. Allen pictured the Fellowship Circle as a dependable and useful ally in promoting the work of
the B. T. S. The two dominant purposes of the organization were maintaining and fostering the
fellowship, and lending aid to the Institute in training lives for Christian service.
Certainly the brief history of the organization reflects credit to thc foresight and vision of
its founders. In respect to the first objective, fellowship has been fostered through periodicals
and meetings. At first circular letters were issued by the Corresponding Secretary, keeping all in-
formed of the activities of members. In 1921 the circular letter was succeeded by the FELLOW-
SHIP CIRCLE BULLETIN largely through the efforts of Miss Salome Schug.
Apart from the innumerable and imperceptible influences exerted by individuals in the in-
terest of the Institute, there have been substantial and tangible helps undertaken in several di-
rections. Many worthy students have been given help in meeting their financial obligations. The
Circle regularly raised from one hundred to three hundred dollars yearly for this purpose. A
number of contributions were appropriated for special needs such as the outfit for an outgoing
missionary or the immediate living needs of a retired teacher. In 1925 the Fellowship Circle un-
dertook the purchase of a bus for the Practical Work Department, which cost approximately
S900.00. A few years later she gave even more generously toward the erection of Bethany Hall.
Her share of this splendid addition, which cost a

"blessed fellowship forever." Certainly there will be no missing member in the circle if all live
out our motto: "That ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the
Father and with His Son Jesus Christ."
The task of keeping contact with the members of this globe-encircling organization is by
no means an easy one. Addresses change, names change, and interests change-but the laborious
task of keeping a correct mailing list goes on forever. The following have served in the capacity
of Corresponding Secretary or Editor: Miss Ida Rogers, Mrs. John Clasper, Miss Dcrsic Quince,
Miss Salome Schug, Mrs. Franklin Chant, Mrs. Melvin Rich, Rev. W. O. Iilopfenstein, Rev. Chris.
