Time is a slow, hut certain eraser of memories.
Incidents which glow with life today, grow dim
toiiim'1'rm', and gradually fade into ihe hlurred
lwaelcggrouiicl of the forgotten past. XYe realized
this: therefore we have endeavored to incorporate
on the pages of this hook an accurate portrayal of
our school life, helieving that it will serve to keep
alive in nm' minds the cherished memories of
friendships that we have formed, and urge us to
pray lor one another as we are lalmoring in vari-
ous parts of the Masters vineyard. XYe also hope
that copies of this hook will fall into the hands of
prospective students, and he used hy God to lelld
them to the Bible Institute to prepare for the
l-ord's service. lYith these ends in view, we pre-
sent to our readers this edition of the LIGHT
To the Rev. I". L. liicher, our beloved Business
Manager, whose joviality and kindness have en-
deared him to us all. whose courage in the face
uf adverse circmnstances has inspired us to press
Onward. and whose business ability and faith in
Cod have Contributed largely to the success anfl
growth of The Bible Institute, we affectionately
dedicate the 1935 edition ofthe LIGHT TONYFR.
Two days alter the Commencement last year, our
esteemed brother Byron G. Smith, one of our staff, fell
asleep in jesus very unexpectedly.
In the home going of our beloved brother, the Bible
Institute sustained a great loss.
Our sainted brother had a sterling character. He was
a man with a clean heart and 3 pure conscience: he had
a humble and sweet spirit, and was easy to get along
with. VVherever he lived and labored, he made friends.
Brother Smith had a clear vision of full salvation
and stood with us for the testimony which the Insti-
His ministry was extensive, He was a real teacher,
and knew the art of imparting knowledge unto others.
He was also an excellent field man, understanding how
to meet people and to make contacts with the various
He belonged to the group of which Paul speaks in
II Timothy two, "A vessel unto honor, sanctified, and

"And I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me,
'XYrite, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from
henceforth: yea saith the spirit, that they may rest
from their labors, and their works do follow them."
Yours in Christ, -
Paul, the Master Preacher
llaeizalaureate address by the Rev. Byron ll. Smith delivered only six days before he left us.
This subject is built upon three phrases in II Timothy 427.2 "1 have ftught a good
fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."
These phrases are the epitome of a life, not an cpitaph for a tombstone. They
vibrate with activity, thrill with tragedy, throb with pathos, and resound with victory.
fhese phrases present to us at once a backward and a forward look. As spoken by
the apostle they were a backward look, but to those who follow him. they should become
a forward look. They give the life stature of a master preacher.
Paul was a master preacher in every sense of the word: by his early scholastic
training which gave him expert knowledge of Jewish law and theology: by his great
capitulation on the Damascus road to the Christ whom he had persecuted: hy virtue of
his apostleship which made his teachings of Christianity authoritative: but mOst of all
by the fact expressed in Phil. 3:13, 14, in which he sets before himself one and only one
We gaze upon the work of the master painters and thrill with emotion. Wie listen
to the rapturous symphonies of the masters of music and our spirits are subdued. Let
us now stand in the presence of this great master preacher as he is portrayed to us in
these three phrases until our spirits are fired with his courage and his missionary zeal.
VVe cannot become great artists, musicians, or preachers by imitating those who
have gone down in history as great: we must have the elements which made them great
fused into our own spirit and character. Three of these elements of greatness appear in
this picture of Paul's life. First, he had the spirit of a soldier, a soldier who refused
to recognize sacrifice or defeat. His courage was equaleql only by his humility. He
knew neither fright or flight. Second, he followed a definite course from which he re-
fused to swerve. His career could be put in three words-concentration, consecration.
and conquest. Concentration, a single life objective. Consecration, bringing every
faculty and facility to contribute to this single life objective. Conquest, an intensive.
aggressive, and relentless conflict with wrong and wrongdoers. As an example of
avowed allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ, Patil is unsurpassed. This allegiance made
him an enemy of all that was enmity to Christ. In the third place, Paul refused to
depart from the faith. As used here, the word faith seems to encompass the sum total
of Christian doctrine. Paul's expressions indicate that he ccnsidered himself as a steward,
a custodian of the truths and teachings of Christ. To him this was a most sacred trust,
the violation of which would bring upon him eternal woes. This conviction dominated
his life. He kept the faith.
This is a day when all who engage against the forces of evil need special courage
and encouragement. VVith all of ns there are times when it is either fight or flight. At
such times a contemplation of this portrait of the master preacher, Paul, the hero of
the cross, will help us to marshal our flagging spirits and energies, and will enable ns
to so engage ourselves in this warfare against the enemies of right and righteousness
that we too may be able some day to say, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my
course. I have lqept the faith."

T0 THE CLASS
ln the light of the fact that you have niatle a beginning in the
ministry of the highest calling on earth. let me give you the 101-
lowing 2lCl1llOlllIl0l!, which I niysclt aln heeding.
lf we want to understanrl what we study, retain what we
learn, and have the ability to impart unto others what we have
acrpiired. we must keep our bodies under, and not be governed
hy our natural desires.
XXX- inust not allow our own will to rule our little empire, but
pin- wliole being must be under the guidance ot the Holy Spirit.
for ,lt-sus says: "XYhen He, the Spirit ot truth is conle, He will
guide you into all truth."
ll' we want to live a victorious Christian life, and continue
to add to what we have already attained, we must live in the
realni of prayer, as it is expressed in Acts six, "But we will give
ourselves continually to prayer."
l. l'rayer has the first place in all that we do. The
apostle says, "I exhort therefore that first ot all, supphcations.
prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men."
2. Prayer in everything' "Hut in everything hy prayer
and supplication. with thanksgiving let your requests he made
known unto God."
3. "Continue" in prayer: "Hut we will give ourselves con-
tinually to prayer." Let the incense ot prayer and praise rise
continually troin the altar of our hearts.
Going in the above described way, we shall be enriched more
and more in the things of God and our lives will be "living epis-
tles read and known of all men."
Believing prayer is the mightiest force in the world. Prayer
is the largest channel through which the greatest blessing flows.
Yours in the All-Sufficient One,
J. E. Ramseyer.

LIGHT-BEARERS TO A DARK WORLD
The eleuds of sin enclosed the earth,
.Xnd sheathed it in at spiritual dearthg
No holy flame was burning bright,
And men were flying in the night.
jesus came. His glory far
Outshone the sun or brightest star.
His heart of love in radiance glowed,
And shining deeds of love bestowed.
His dazzling splendor no pen could write,
Though flipped in seas of glowing lightg
Though bathed in blazing tongues of flame
Could ne'er portray His glorious name.
lYhen on the cross they pierced His side,
The clouds of sin were scattered wide:
For when on Calvary He bled,
His rays of love in hearts were shed.
The Gospel is the Light of man:
And it alone ean ever span
The awful gulf that separates
Us fri m our Lord and He:1ven's gates.
So make us bearers of that Light
That lifts man from the blackest night
Of sin, and causes him to see
His soul was bought on Calvary.
Uh, make us searehlights, Lord, we pray,
To turn this darkness into dayi
And give us lens in this dark hour
To magnify thy saving power.

Light-Bearers To A Dark World
XXX- praise God, "though we were sonietinies in darkness: now are we light in the
Lord." lt was with the consciousness vi being chosen to shine as lights in a dark world,
and with the realization of our need for training, that the class of 1955 entered the Bible
Of the niany who registered in the fall of 1932, only a few have been privileged to re-
turn and complete their c- urse.
XYe have discovered during our years of training that there was niuch to learn. As
the mystery of QUflllllJS5 was unfolded to us hy the faculty, we were made to realize
anew the great and hidden truths of the wonderful VYord. VVe have ffrund with Bishop
,lewel that "the lYord of God is the water of life: the more ye lave it forth, the fresher
it runneth. lt is the fire of Gods glory: the more ye blow it. the clearer it buruefh.
It is the corn of the I,.ord's field: the better ye grind it, the more it yieldeth. It is the
bread of heaveng the more it is broken and given forth, the more reinaineth. It is the
swwrd of the Spirit: the more it is scoured, the brighter it shinethf'
Not only was there much to learn, but there was much to endure. Satan is a long
way from having retired from the business of cleludiug God's children, whether in Bible
School or elsewhere, VVQ marvel at some of the experiences through which we are
called to pass, but afterwards we see that they afforded us some new knowledge of our
l.ord. Through these trials and temptations the hand of the divine Master is shaping us
for the niche we are to fill. XYe are trusting Hini to drill us to the proper preparation.
Then. there was niuch to enjoy. The blessings of this training have been rich and
overflowing. Life has its sunbursts as well as its storms. Many were the experiences
which caused the heavens to he opened and the blessings of God to be showered upon us.
And now as we, the class of 1935, are about to leave the Bible Institute, we see that
there is niuch to be done. The light of the sun is not confined to one district, nor eni-
pire, nor to one quarter of the globe, but visits all in their turn, burning within the torrid
zone, and reachine' the dark and distant poles. ,lust so, must we bear the Gospel light to
a dark world, until the whole earth has been enlightened. It is the blessed light of the
Son, the l.ord jesus, that will energize the whole world.
NVQ. as light-bearers of the class of 1935, stand with our faces to the future, uot
striving for present praise but for future fruition.

"Ah Lord God! behold. thou hast made the heaven and the earth bv thy great power
and stretched out arm, and there is nothing teo hard for thee" Uer, 32:
This is the testimony of the junior class, for the Lord Himself has carried us through
many and varied experiences. Vile have come in obedience to God's call, and have seen
Him openi the way, step by step, surniounting every obstacle.
Some of the juniors have been definitely called to be missionaries, some to be evan-
gelists, and others have consecrated their musical talents for the I.ord's service.
XVe have spent many a blessed hour feasting on the precious truths from Gods
XVord. The secular studies form a foundation for a deeper understanding of the Bible,
and enable us to make better progress in the various fields of service,
NVith the study of the divinely inspired XVord of God, with Christ held up as the
Supreme Example, with the faculty as faithful followers of Christ and leaders of His
cause, with students having caught the heavenly vision, we have been inspired to seek
God's best for our lives. Indeed, our privilege has been great, but let us also remember
that our responsibility will be commensurate with our privilege.

After spending several months at thc llible Institute we can testify that we have
thoroughly enjoyed it. Christ means more to us now than He has ever meant before.
He has proved Himself a very present help.
We have received much help and inspiration from all of our classes. Especially
has our study of both the Old and New Testament been helpful. The Bible has become fl
new and living book to each of us. Other subjects, perhaps not as important, but also
necessary, have been taken and enjoyed.
It is a privilege to study under teachers who are not only competent to teach, but
who also rely upon the help ot the Holy Spirit. Each of our classes is opened with
prayer, and we have found that it is much easier to study when Plc illuminates our niinrls.
The Christian fellowship with the teachers, and with one another, has been a source
of much help and encouragement. XVe praise God because He has led us here to prepare
for His service. Our earnest desire is to be used by Him.

As academic students of the Bible Institute, we are now completing
the first year of our Bible School career. Having found salvation through
our Lord jesus Christ, and having before us His supreme example of a
true Christian life, we are earnestly making preparations in order that we
might serve and follow Him with all sincerity and humbleness.
Although there are a few of us who have not had definite calls. we
are all seeking diligently to keep in the center of our Lord's will. If we
are there, we have no need to worry and fret in our daily life.
NYe find, in talking over our daily trials and experiences, that tiod
wfrks differently in each of our lives. However, we know that through
these trials and experiences we are brought into closer communion with
our Lord ,lesus Christ. And so it is in this wonderful fellowship of Gods
people that we receive untold blessings and comforts which inspire our
hearts in ft llowing the teachings of God's XYord.
Let us now look to the things we have obtained from our first year
of Bible School. On coming here we had expected much from our various
classes. XYe now realize niuch more than we had ever expected, for we
have gained felli wship with Christian people that we shall never forget.
Being within their presence, we have received a wonderful blessing and a
deeper sense of Gods love. XYQ have also found that with the Holy Spirit
working in our lives we are able to accomplish much for the glory of God.
Having been called into the service of tur blessed Lord, ue realized
our great need of preparation. 'l'hanl-1 God, we are in camp, training to
be efficient soldiers of the "Grand Army of the Redeemedf' Hur camp is
the Bible Institute, and we are receiving our added training by a special
course of study.
Having but a limited amount of time to spend in schiiol, a number
of students chose those subjects that will be of the greatest benefit to them
in future service. Some, having had former Bible School or college train-
ing, wished to spend another year studying in a spiritual atmosphere. Some-
times secular work prevents students from carrying a full schedule: so
they are classed as special students. .-Xnother group of students who
chose the special course are those who entered late in the school year.
They are taking a number of varil us subjects until the following semester
when they may pursue a standard course of study.
IYe are not a Class, but we are privileged to elect subjects that fit
our needs and circumstances. Wve go to the same classes: thus, we
mingle and have fellowship with all of the students, workers, and teachers.
XYe praise God for the glorious privilege of learning to more effective-
ly wield our sword, the IYord, by studying to show ourselves approved
unto God, a worlcman that needeth net to be ashamed, rightly dividing the
word of truth.

Consecration involves not only a thought of the present, but also a serious consider-
ation of the future. The consecration of our ability to God is not lnnited to the surrender
of our natural gifts in their raw, uncultivated state, but includes the determination in our
hearts to improve those gifts to their highest proficiency,
Each of us is a storehouse of possibilities, an armory of pi tential forces, There lie
within us many talents, some ot which are dormant. l..ike the acorn, whose shell en-
closes the germ of a giant oak, so we possess those faculties that are waiting to burst
through the iron casing ot disuse, and manifest themselves in utility, beauty, and strength.
As the acorn cannot germinate until it is planted in rich soil and nursed by the refreshing
showers and warm sunshine, so the talent cannot manifest itselt until it is placed in that
environment which will allow it tu unfold. lt is dangerous to neglect a talent. A disused
talent is a decaying one. The elements of time attack it, rob it ot its vitality, and gradu-
ally kill it. We must find that talent, place it in favorable circumstances, and give it a
chance to grow.
After breaking the shell of the acorn. the tiny oak sapling must have nourishment,
without which it wilts, shrivels, and dies, XYithout nourishment, talents do the same,
They must be fed by knowledge-knowledge gained either in schools of learning or
acquired at home by assiduity of study.
Nourishment alone, however, is not sufficient. There must be exercise. A talent
that is fed by knowledge but not exercised by practice will becoiue weak and useless,
As soon as the young tree becomes higher than the tops of its fellows, it is exposed to
the battling storms of the elements. lts fibre is tested as its long tender trunk strains
before the cruel windsg its points of weakness are revealedg its roots are sent deeper to
anchor it in a firmer foundation. So it is with our talents: they must be put to a practical
useg they must be tested before all the opposing forces-the lashing blows of failure,
the tornado of ridicule. XYe must scoff at temporary defeat, laugh at the mums gf others,
Each failure and each word of scorn reveal certain weaknesses, and should cause the
talent to send its roots deeper into the soil of determination, and to draw upon its life-
giving energy for renewed vigor and strength. Each victory will make it stronger and
better able to meet the assault of the oncoming battle.
God has given to every man at least one talent, to some men several talents. Are
we making use of them? Have we found our talents? Are we nourishing and exercising
them? These are serious questions: for if we are wilfully refusing to cultivate the ability
that God has given us, then we have not truly consecrated our all to the Master. VVe
are robbing God of what He owns and the world of what it needs.

prepared the way for the reception of the XN'ord.
During this past year the teams labored in many denominations, and

The Gospel has been given forth in song, testimony. and message. Sin-
ners were deeply convicted. and many repented, while Christians were
blessed and drawn closer to their Saviour. For this, we humbly thank our
God, and ' th ' ' ' ' '
pray at His blessing may continue to rest upon the teams and
their labors for Him.
For there is no respect of persons with God. - Romans 2:11,
Street meetings, which are held every Saturday night, when the Weather permits,
verify the above Scripture. Persons from every walk of life have been dealt with by
students of the Institute, and have received Christ as their Saviour. XYe have witnessed
the conversion of business men, newsboys. tramps, salesmen, and common laborers.
These meetings are not only beneficial to listeners, but also afford an opportunity to
students for active service. God has greatly blessed this phase of Christian work.
The services are conducted in the following manner: XYe open the meeting by singing
some familiar Gospel hymns. The singing is often accompanied by music on instruments
played by students. This music helps to attract and retain the crowd. The songs are
interspersed with fervid, inspiring testimonies of the working of Gods grace in the hearts
and lives of the students. Yaried Christian experiences are related, which, no doubt,
speak to the hearts of bystanders. Following the testimonies, the leader of the group
lirinus a short message from the lN'ord of God. The Spirit applies the XVord, and when
the invitation is given, some, by uplifted hand, express a desire to receive Jesus Christ
as their personal Saviour. Students take these aside and kneel with them in prayer.
Many rept.-nt of their sins and receive Christ into their hearts. They sometimes mani-
fest fheif UCW'fC'UlHl 505' in tears of happiness and slhouts of victory. Passers-by cannot
help being impressed by the earnestness and love shown for individuals seeking spiritual
aid. Our own hearts are encouraged when we see the workings of God.
Tracts are distributed among the pedestrians and bystanders. In this manner, many
are reached who otherwise would not have an opportunity of hearing the blessed Story.
The earnest prayer of every student is that God may bless the message of the tracts
to the salvation of souls and make our street meetings even more fruitful.
Tract Distribution is an interesting and very helpful field of service. As the writer
pens these lines, he recalls happy memories of the past two years of service on the Tract
Distribution Team. NYe would fill our pockets with Gospel tracts, pray earnestly for
guidance and blessing, and then go into the streets, beer-gardens, pool-rooms, and
gambling dens. Oh, how our hearts were touched! Vve found some people who were
hungry, yet who did not know where to satisfy that hunger. XVritten on their faces were
lines of discontent. despair, hopelessness.
Sometimes we held meetings in these different pool-rooms. Special songs were
sung, testimonies were given, and then tracts were passed out. Often some of the more
earnest seekers followed us from one pool-room to the next. God manifested Himself
in a marvelous way. Listen to a few of the words that were uttered by some of th0SS
with whom we dealt: tlb "Yes, I want to be saved: I want to be a Christian, but I'm
not worthy." 423 "VVill you come to my room and have prayer with nie?" Q35 "Boys, I
love all of you-you want to help me so much, and I do love you. Please pray for me."
f-13 "Young men, you are doing the right thing: keep it up!" CSD "I want to be saved,
but not tonight. Pray for me." Eternity alone will reveal the number of souls that
have been saved through this phase of practical work.
Do not these utterances stir our hearts anew? May God help us to pray earnestly
that the vision of perishing souls will ever be kept bright: and then as we go from school
may we not cool off in the least, but press forward, taking advantage of every opportunity
that is thrust before us!
Sunday School Teaching
God has wonderfully enabled the students of the Fort XYayne Bible Institute to live
up to the school's slogan, "Training for Service and Service in Training." The offering
of the different courses constitutes the fulfillment of the former part of the slogan.
"Training for Service," while the latter phrase, "Service in Training," is made real in
the practical assignments of the students.
The Sunday School work is one part of the fulfillment of the phrase "Service in
Training." One outstanding ministry of the Institute is the giving forth of the Gospel
every Sunday morning to the children at the Allen County L'hildren's Home, which
is about six miles north of Fort XYayne. The trip each Sunday is made in the school
bus. God has proved Himself faithful in saving souls for His glory and in protecting us
when going to and from the place of ministry. There are four main departments in the
work, namely, the Girls' Department, the Vocational School, the Older Boys' Depart-
ment, and Younger Boys' Department. Besides the regular Sunday School lesson, the
program consists of the singing of songs and choruses, prayers to God in behalf of the
work, special musical numbers, object lessons, and whatever the Spirit of Gofl may lay
on the hearts of those in charge. Mr. Newton, a missionary home from China, on fur-
lough, talked to the children one Sunday and showed his curios from that country. The
hearts of the boys and girls were greatly moved. God alone knows what that one visit
to the Orphanage will mean to those children, NVQ praise God for the visible results
in the Home. Some of the children have been saved, and others have been br'-ught
under conviction for sin as the Holy Spirit has revealed jesus to them. One entire class
has been saved. To God be all the glory! Pray earnestly for this work, because the
future of these children depends greatly upon their instruction in spiritual things now.
We truly appreciate the privilege of ministering to the soul-needs of these children,
and we heartily thank the supervisors of the Allen County Children's Home for giving
us this opportunity. VVe also praise God for His faithfulness in blessing the Vlforfl to
the children's hearts.
Students have the privilege of giving forth the XVord of God in Sunday Schools in
the extreme sections of Fort XVayne. Sunnyside, which is located on the South Side. has
two Institute students as its teachers. These students, with the other teachers at that
place, thank God for the interest which is shown in their respective classes. One of our
students teaches at a Sunday School at North Side, where a former student of the Bible
Institute is pastor.
The Sunday School work in Hollywood, a small town north of Fort XYayne, has
been greatly blessed since the opening of the school year. The attendance at the Sunday
School has increased, and sin-sick souls have been made whole and clean through the
blood of the Lamb of God.
That God's blessing may continually be on the Bible Institute as it breaks the Bread
of Life to the hungry multitudes is my prayer.

The Christian church has not been exempt from the universal tendency
toward contraction. It too has had its Babel hnilders whose aim was Uto make
us a name," though it was more often suppressed than expressed. The means
became the end, and so great churches, great institutions, and great denomina-
tions became the goal. Men became sect-conscious instead cf ljhrist-conscious
Centralization of resources then replaced the .diffusion of the Gospel. Even
the early disciples were content to remain at jerusalem long after the tarrying
period should have given way to vxorldewide witnessing. Finally this tendency
became confirmed and it was taken for granted that the church was to conserve
rather than share its blessings. XVhen Yon XVelz in the 17th century inquired
of the slumbering church whether it was right that we, evangelical Christians,
should hold the Gospel for ourselves alone and not seek to spread it, he was
denounced as a dreamer, a fanatic, a heretic, and a hypocrite.
God has usually had to resort to providential circumstances rather than
conscious leading to further His program. The early church was permitted to
suffer persecution that its membership might he scattered. Now and then God
has found men whom He could intelligently employ to carry the Gospel to the
ends of the earth. They have had a clear conception of the Scriptural mission
of the church. XVith Firm convictions resting upon the unchangeable NVord they
have insisted that all else is secondary to world evangelism. They followed the
God-given impulse to give and to share and to go.
From the time that the vision of the Bible Institute was born of the Spirit
in the hearts of the founders, it has steadily counteracted the tendency toward
contraction. It has attempted to widen the 'horizon of its students to the whole
world of human need. It has stood for missions as the supreme function of
the church. The scores of students who have gone from its halls to the farther
fields of the earth are its testimony that its vision has been practically realized.
The students have an organization known as The Students' Mission Band which
meets each lfriday evening in the Chapel. At that time a program of music and prayer is
followed by a message. Usually missionaries speak, telling of their calls to service, quali-
fications necessary, bright and dark sides of missionary work. and ofihow God blesses
their efforts. Many times they show Curios or stereopticon pictures. We have also had
as our speakers several native Christians from other lands who are being educated to
teach and preach to their people.
As a result of the services, the Lord speaks to us in a number of ways. Our mis-
sionary vision is broadened, and we are impressed with the necessity of praying for the
missionaries. XYe are made to search our hearts to see if we are dead to our ambitions
and consecrated to tiod's will, whatever it may be. Frequently an altar service is held
at the close of Mission Band, and oh, how tiod meets and blesses all who go through
Love for God and mankind causes many to respond to His commission as given in
Matthew 28:19, 20, and go forth as missionaries and Christian workers. Others give
money that the called-ones may go. Regular giving keeps up the spirit of missions:
the Mission Band is supporting Clayton Steiner, missionary to South America.
In the history of the Institute over a hundred students have gone as foreign mission-
aries, many of whom were undoubtedly called as a result of t'iod's speaking to them
through Mission Band services.
Five O'clock Prayer Meeting
The fixe olfock prayer meetings are a very important part of our schcol life. There
are two sides from which to estimate their value. The first is seen from the mission-
aries' standpoint: and the second from ours. There is a spiritual refreshing for all who
participate. Hur hearts are warmed anew. and the passion for lost and perishing souls
is more deeply implanted within us.
Beginning with Monday and continuing through Saturday, during this five o'clock
prayer meeting, we pray each evening for a different missionary field. At the end of the
week, we have circled the entire world with prayer. The young ladies gather
in a class room in Bethany Hall, while the young men gather in the chapel,
and in these respective places prayer, united prayer, is ascending to God the
Father in behalf of definite needs. NYe realize that on the far-flung battle-fields a mighty
conflict is raging. The missionaries are in the front rank facing the enemy: we are in
the rear ranks, and the responsibility is equally divided. "May God grant tis more faith.
a greater ability to intercede, and a much greater earnestnessu is our prayer, as we
begin to comprehend the tremendous responsibility before us.
XYilliam Carey, the great missionary to India, before entering that needy field, left
these words of weightg "Yonder in India is a gold mine. I will descend and dig, but you
at home must hold the ropes." In these prayer meetings we are learning to be good
"rope-hi ldersf' Shall we not get a good grip, and by the grace of God, not let go? May
we be the "helpers" that God intends us to be, and thus blaze the trail for the soon return
My Missionary Vision
Looking back over the past two years that I have spent in the Bible Institute, my
heart is made to rejoice when I realize how the Lord has led me all the way, step by
step. If it were not for His grace and mercy I would not be able to write this, because
my own heart was stubborn and would not yield for some time to His divine purpose for
Long before I came to the Bible Institute I knew what the Lord would have me
do, because I received my call when I was only eight years old. I was willing then,
but when I became old enough to realize the sacrifice it would mean, I was not willing
to make it, and refused to yield to Gods will for me. XYhen I came to the Institute
I knew the Lord wanted me for service in Africa, and still I would not yield. The enemy
of my soul made me believe that I was too little to be a missionary, so surely the Lord
made a mistake.
After I had been in school for about five weeks, Mr. Hotchkiss, a dear saint of
isiod who had been in Africa for thirty-six years, spoke to ns several mornings in
chapel. On VVednesday morning of that week he took his text from the tenth chapter
of St. John, and the sixteenth verse went home to my heart. I knew that those "other
sheep" could not End the fold unless some one went to show them the way. That evening,
while I was on my knees, the Lord gave me a vision of an African village. I was held
high by a Mighty Hand, yet tenderly, so that I could see the grass roofs of many native
huts in the village. Around the village was 3 high fence crudely made of bamboo and
thatches. In the side of the fence toward me was a narrow gateway, and out of this
came countless numbers of men and women holding out their arms toward me, It near-
ly broke my heart to see them in such a condition, and yet there was no one to tell them
of our Savior, I told the Lord, then, that I would gladly go.
Since that time, my missionary vision has been greatly enlarged by the messages we
have heard in our Mission Band meetings. just recently, as I listened to a native
Christian from Nigeria, my heart thrilled within me to see the transforming power of the
Gospel. The tribal marks were still on his face, but praise the Lord, the sin scars on
his heart were removed long ago.
In studying the history of Missions my heart becomes even more burdened. Some
countries are still waiting for their first Christian missionary. As I see the appalling
need on every hand, I wish I had a dozen lives to give to the Master for foreign service.
How I praise the Lord for leading me to the Bible Instituteg for I know that if I had
not come here I would never have yielded to His divine call. It was through the influ-
ence of the spiritual atmosphere and the fine missionary spirit here that my stubborn
will was broken. Elizabeth Ritchey.

The Chorus Groups
Every Tuesday afternoon at two o'clock, a group :if students
gather in the chapel to sing anthems of praise to our lilessed
Redeemer, Jesus Christ. These students make up the Special
thorns ot about sixty-tour mixed voices which are selected liv
Professor fierher. Such numbers as "Unto us a tihild is llornn
from Hande-l's Messiah, and others are sung. These difficult
numbers require much practice, hut when sung well are ex-
ceedingly heautiful. Our souls are warmed in singing these
anthems of praise. :Xu annual concert is given at the close of the
The Klen's Chorus is composed of ahziut twenty-four young
men who are in training' to win souls for our l.,ord -lesus Lilirist,
These men are all selected vocalists, having fine resovant voices.
They sing well known men's chorus nunihers, all of tliem con-
veying the Gospel story. Each memher enjoys singing and appreciates this experience
in the art of choral singing.
The Chorus has responded to a nunilmer of calls this year, hut the most outstanding
one was the trip to Elkhart, Indiana, They sang in the Zion Mennonite Brethren in
Christ Church where the Rev. Quinton Fverest is pastor. lipon their arrival they were
inet with a warmth of hospitality and immediately felt at home. The men enjoyed all
of the services of the day and the spirit which pervaded all the homes in which they
were entertained. The Holy Spirit was graciously manifest in our midst throughout the
entire day, for which we praise and thank God.
Because of the wholly consecrated lives of l'rofessor tierher and the students who
make up the choruses, G+-cl is greatly gloritied through the ministry ot these two groups.
Piano and Voice
"Music, music everywhere,
Music floating in the air."
XYe, the students of the Fort XYayue Bible Institute, deem
it a real privilege to receive training in voice and piano under our
capable instructors, Mr. XXTCHVSI' and Mr. Gerher. In the estima-
tion of many, one would have to go for some distance to receive
as good and as thorough training elsewhere.
judging from the sounds coming from the piano studio, we
conclude that Mr. Vkieaver is quite husy giving lessons on the
piano. Not only do we hear it during the day hut in the evenings
as well. Indeed, his time is well occupied. for he has over seventy
pupils. In this number are included several who are not enrolled
in the Institute as students.
Mr. Gerber's class is larger than it has heen for a few years.
l'wenty-five students are receiving voice culture under his teaching. Twice as ni:
ladies as men are taking. advantage of this training.
It is 3 Veal joy. 35 We are preparing for our Masters service, to studv hoth voice
and piano. God wants us to develop our talents in singing' and playing as well as along
other lines. May God richly bless our instructors who soifaitlifullyiteacli us.
Music is a language, a powerful language, a language that is well known and used
bv practically everyone. A composer expresses his thoughts, feelings, sentiments, pas-
sions, and emotions in his composition as an author or an orator does on the printed
page. One may depict the hard life of a composer in his music. Beethoven, for instance,
seems to pour into some of his music, as a raging torrent, a flood of grief, hardships,
trials, disappointments. sorrows and woes: so that he transforms his composition into a
0ne's surroundings may inspire him to write music or compose a song. Merrill

waves which the boat churned up as it plowed through the sea. As he stood staring down
into the water, thinking of its huge depth. he thought of God's wonderful promise that
our sins are buried in the depths of the deepest sea. Thus, he was led to write that
wonderful song, "My Sins are Blotted Out, I Know."
Music affects its hearers in different ways, depending. of course. upon the tvpe of
music heard. Some music mav tend to arouse a happy, joyful feeling. New converts
usually like to sing. even if they have never cared to do so before: singing is a good
w av to express new-born joy, Some pieces. hymns. or songs may make people feel very
sad. leave a hush upon the audience. and even cause them to weep. Handel often wept
while composing, si-me of his sacred writings being blotted with tears. Beautiful sacred
songs often make Christians feel very unworthy of God's love.
Music is inspirational, soothing, and uplifting. There are those soft, tender melodies
which seem as spirit-breaths that mount sweetly to heaven from whence they have so
recently descended: these beautiful strains seem to lift us from the cares of this world
on their mighty wings. and bear us to the very gates of that pearly white city.
Music is a spiritual asset: it is good for our souls, because things divine are brought
to our mental vision by means of this great medium. Music plavs a verv important part
in the church service. It creates an atmosphere for true worship. and prepares hearts
for the message. It fuses the feelings and affections into one holy emotion. bringing
the riches of the heart into the service of God. Music is an instrument of God. A song
may put certain people, who otherwise mav not be moved. under conviction and cause
them to seek the Lord. Many hearts have been touched and melted through the playing
of sacred music.
Surely music is scriptural, for the NVord tells us to sing with grace in our hearts to
the Lord, and to praise Him with the sound of the trumpet. with the psaltery and harp.
with stringed instruments and organs. Music in the church is for the praise, adoration.
and worship of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the theme of all truly great and uplifting
music. He is the One more than worthy of our most perfect harmonies, sweetest
melodies, and most beautiful touches of expression. In His presence, jazz blushes with
shame, but sacred strains continue to reecho through the corridors of heaven because
of His approving smile. My1'0n Rodebaugh-
The Chapel Service
The Chapel service is held every morning during the period between the second and
tlnrdlhour cla-sses, All the students, layincf aside their studies, gather for a half hour

which is followed by a message from the XYord.
The services are free from monotonv in that a wide range of speakers appear on the
program. These nlav be classified into four groups. First, the faculty members. Each
teacher addresses the student body at the beginning of each semester. Second, the
students themselves. It is customary for the seniors and the members of the class
in homiletics to give chapel messages on Mondavs. Vvednesrlavs, and Fridays. l1I1l6SS

meetines are especially appreciated by the students who live outside the dormitories,
and who cannot take part in our dining room devotions.
From time to time special sneakers come to us. Rev, Joseph H. Smith was with
us several days at the opening of the school year. His messages, drawn from zi rich and
ripe experience. proved to be full of blessing' for us all. and helped us to beefin the vear
victoriously. In, December, the Spellman Evangelistic Partv, who were holding: meetings
in the First Missionary Church. had eharee of our chapel services. XVe ereatly enioved
their musical numbers and were blessed in our souls by Miss Spellniaifs deeply spiritual
messages. Time and again, we have been stirred to the depths as we have sat under the
teaching of the Spirit-filled men and women of God.
The chapel services have been a great blessing, for our vision has been clarified, our
soul-burden increased. and zeal intensified. VVe praise God tor this daily provision He
has given for our souls.
The Quiet Hour
XYhat a privilege it is to begin each day with God! Realizing that our own strength
is not equal to the tasks ahead, we observe a few minutes of quiet meditation and prayer
early in the morning. This we students call the quiet hour, for it is a time when we really
draw near to God and our hearts become still before Him. It is during these moments
of prayer in the early morning that He reveals His will, and we receive grace for the
day that is before us, sensing anew that feeling of security which comes from knowing
that "underneath are the everlasting arms."
In our devotional reading during the quiet hour God so many times speaks to us
through His XVord. A precious promise. a command, or perhaps even a rebuke, God often
makes so real to us that it seems to be literally illuminated before our eyes. Frequently
Cod has a message for His child, who never receives it because he does not take the time
to get alone with his Lord and let Him speak. The Father usually talks to us quietly.
often in whispers: and unless we are living very close to His heart of love. we will not
hear the call of the "still small voice."
XVe have learned that it is not enough to study the Bible with the aim of merely
preparing a lesson, but we must also set aside a special time in which to feed our souls
with the Bread of Life-a time when God opens His XVord to us and shows us His plan
for our lives. Such is the purpose of the quiet hour.
Evening Devotional Hour
"Daniel kneeled upon his knees three times a day and prayed, and gave thanks be-
fore his God."
Each evening after supper we have devotions in the dining room. To have them at
this time insures the presence of the entire student body.
This hour is under the leadership of one of the instructors. who has charge for a
week at a time. It is informal. VVe are given an opportunity to praise Him who has
done so much for us. This may be done through testimonies, the singing of choruses, or
in whatever way the Spirit may direct. VVe feel the truth of the promise, "NVhere two or
three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them." How many
blessings we receive in helping others pray for burdens which have been placed upon
their hearts! I am sure the greatest blessings come when we hear the testimonies of
answered prayers. God still answers prayer if we meet the conditions.
On Monday evenings we often push our chairs back and form a circle-a true family
circle. It is on this evening that we enjoy listening to reports given by those who have
been on team trips the preceding Lord's Day. These testimonies prove to us that where
the true Gospel is preached, it will not return void.
After enjoying this short season of fellowship, we are ready to adapt ourselves to
our evening studies.
Half Day of Prayer
If Jesus. Christ, the sinless One, needed to spend whole nights in prayer, how much
more necessary it is for us to spend time alone with God. For this reason a half day is
set apart in each month for prayer. NVe look forward to this day with great anticipation,
for as we pray
"Come, Holy Ghost, with quickening fire!
Our consecrated hearts inspire,"
Cod graciously answers our prayer.
The first part of the service is given over to singing and exhortation from the
Scriptures. This prepares our hearts for true worship to God and communion with Him.
The rest of the time is spent in prayer and testimony. The Holy Spirit, who is given
right of way, searches every heart. XVhen the Holy Spirit has His way, the presence of
the Lord is always manifested. God reveals Himself to us, and we are filled anew with
the Holy Spirit.
Between seasons of prayer we are given opportunity to testify or to voice our needs.
Often our hearts are melted together in love and sympathy as we hear the needs of so
many. VVe truly realize why Christ's heart is broken when He sees and knows all the
needs of mankind. These hours of waiting upon God are times when we get a vision,
not only of a lost world, but also of Jesus' power to save.
Many students have received definite spiritual help. Many come to the chapel with
burdened hearts-burdened because of the cares of life, of temptations, and perhaps of
llllS!lVCd loved ones. VVhen these weary ones bring their load to the feet of Jesus, they
receive strength anew for the duties before them, and leave the chapel with blessed
victory. Thank God for these times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord.
Fireside meetings are held one Saturday evening in each month for all the girls of
the Bible Institute. A given meeting is in charge of four proctors who have been appointed
in the previous meeting. The reception room in Bethany Hall is the scene of the gather-
ing. Chairs and davenports are arranged to form a great circle around the room, and
the fireplace is lighted, giving to the room a homelike glow. Promptly at seven-thirty,
the girls appear singly and in groups to ta,ke their places in the circle.
A typical meeting begins with choruses led by one of the girls and sometimes ac-
companied by a guitarg this creates a spirit of fellowship among us. Scripture reading
and prayer follow. The rest of the program may be varied, for we have talent for solos,
duets, quartets, octettes, and readings. During our Christmas program, the room was
lighted by small candles, one of which was given to each girl as she arrived. On that
night, we were glad to have with us Miss Spellman and some of her Missionary XVorkers.
Miss Spellman brought us an interesting and helpful message.
Miss Zeller gives us inspirational messages, and always leaves with us some phrase
of Scripture to ponder during the following days. Among these are: "XN'hose I ani, and
Whom I serve," and "Be filled with the Spirit."
Occasionally there is a short social time, and sometimes notg but we are always sure
l0 receive some favor by which we can remember that meeting in coming years when
we look through our Bible Institute scrap book.
Of the three foreigners in our Alma Mater, I was asked to give some of my personal
experiences. I am glad that this suggestion was changed and that I am permitted to
write a little about Him who has ravished my heart by His love.
Come, Thou fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace:
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Our text: "But grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,"
II Peter 328, is in the form of an exhortation given by Peter to believers. An exhortation
without any danger in view is senseless. The danger at that occasion was twofold, con-
sisting in unsound doctrine and immorality. In the preceding verse we read, "lest ye are
led away with the error of the wicked," referring to false doctrine, and then "fall from
your own steaclfastnessf' which speaks of immoral conduct. But there is a way out of
this danger. Praise His holy name! This is brought out by the word "but," which im-
plies a contrast. It is to grow in grace and knowledge.
Psalm one gives us a fine picture of the growth of a child of God. The righteous
man is compared to a tree planted by the rivers of water, bringing forth fruit in its season,
having a dress of leaves that does not wither. All things that he takes in hand prosper.
The tree does not grow and flcurish because it is such a handsome tree, but only because
of the river of water. Not by our merits and deserts are we what we are, but by His
niatchless grace were we saved and kept to this moment. God in His great love has
taken us from the barren desert soil and planted us beside the life-givingf water. The
streams of His marvelous grace have energized us to grow in Him. All praise and
honor be to His holy name! Growth in its various forms is always steady. XVith an im-
patient leap of faith we get nowhere. Then, growth is also unconscious. In Mark 4:27
we read that the seed springs up and grows, nobody knows how. NVhen we grow, we
usually do not realize it ourselves, for the Christian warfare is a matter of faith. NV'hat
we see and feel is not faith, but sight: therefore our growth is not so much in unusual ex-
periences as in a constant walk by faith. Feelings have their place, too, but they should
be only after-effects of faith exercised. Let us not be occupied with our growth, but
with the Lord: then our growth will be according to- God's will and purpose.
To know the Lord ,Iesus Christ better every day is the desire of our hearts. It is
unwise to follow Him because of the fulness of joy that He gives, the deep peace that
abides, and the purity of life that we are privileged to walk in. The person of the Lord
should be the center of our thoughts, not His favors, and gifts. Unbelievers are attracted
to Christ because of His blessings and benefits: Christians are occupied with Himself.
The first time John the Baptist refers to the Lord, he says, "Behold, the Lamb of God,
which taketh away the sin of the world." This remark has to do with His work and is
spoken to unbelievers. But when john speaks of the Lord to his disciples, he says,
"Behold, the Lamb of God." Here it is the person of the Lord. To learn to know Him
better was the prayer of the aged Paul. How thankful we ought to be for the precious
XN'ord of God that so wonderfully unfolds to us the beauty of our adorable Lord. Let
us feed upon it till we will have to exclaim with Paul, "Oh, the depth of the riches both
of the wisdom and knowledge of God!" R. G. B.
llere are memories, and sketches, too
Of many things we students rlo.
XYhen we no longer tread these halls,
llut labor where our Saviour callsg
Then these a joy to us will Ive,
And to reinemhrances a key.

The Bible Institute Fellowship Circle
Realizing the value of true Christian fellowship and cooperation, The Bible In-
stitute Fellowship Circle has adopted the following aims: to maintain and promote the
fellowship which was begun in the Institute, to foster a spirit of prayer on behalf of one
another and of the Institute, to encourage every member of the Fellowship Circle to be
a true representative of the Institute, to be active in distributing its literature and in
soliciting new students. and to assist the Institute in every proper way.
VVe make special mention of a few of the ways in which the Circle has been of
material assistance to the Institute and its undertakings. A number of years ago a
Gospel bus was presented to the Practical Service Department: thus the influence and
ministry of the school was greatly increased through the student groups which were
sent out by this means. Members of the Fellowship Circle also very substantially aided
in making possible the erecticn of Bethany I-Iall. In addition, a number of needy students
have been given financial help by this organization.
Membership in this association is voluntary, the following being eligible: all gradu-
ates of the Bible Institute: all former and present students who have completed one term
of the school year: members of the Institute Board, teachers, and other workers engaged
in the work of the Institute: and any former teacher or worker who may be named by the
An annual meeting of the Fellowship Circle is held during Commencement NVeek
at the Bible Institute. A program of inspiration and blessing is enjoyed by all who attend.
At this meeting officers are elected for the ensuing year, reports received. and other
business transacted. During this past school year these officers have served: president,
Carl I. Parlee, class of '26: vice-president, Clinton N. Moser, '3Z: secretary, Luella Miller,
'35': treasurer, Paul D. Steiner, '3Z3 editor of The Fellowship Circle Bulletin, Cyril H.
Heaven has claimed another of our circle. Rev. Clarence E. Zimmerman passed
away at his home in Roseville, Michigan, on January 23. In 1928 Brother Zimmerman
was graduated by the Bible Institute. VVith a full heart and a willing hand he lost no
tnne in finding a place of service for Christ. In 1930 he was united in marriage with
Flora Egle who also was graduated from the Bible Institute in 1928. Two children,
David Lee and Wauneta Beth, were born to them. f
I .The Roseville Missionary Church remains as a tribute to Brother Zirnmerman's
ministry. Beginning in an unchurlched section, he preached to many or few and earned
a'living largely by his own hands. His cheerful disposition and Christlike spirit enabled
him to win his way into the hearts of men. His friends will indeed miss his song and
kindly word, and his co-laborers will feel with keenness the loss of a noble Workman.
