P. Lugibihl family caused them to leave the farm and prepare for missionary service in Africa. Being unable to go to the field themselves, they desired to prepare others for the Lord's service. With this work in mind their home in Bluffton, Ohio, was enlarged and improved preparatory to opening the Bethany Bible Institute. The Institute was opened in 1895, with the late Rev. I. E. Ramseyer, the spiritual head, and Mr. and Mrs. Lugibihl, the supervisors. The opening was a step of faith, and God provided the teachers necessary at the time. A goodly number of students, after attending the twenty- week terms, were better prepared for the Mastsr's service. Many of these original students have entered into the presence of their Lord, but there still remain many who are actively engaged in the Lord's work, again in 1904, with thirty-two student enrolled. Since more waited to come later, a change in the program was made necessary. An attempt to secure a larger and more central location finally led to Fort Wayne, Indiana. Numerous sites were suggested, but the price was always prohibitive. The present site of the school was suggested as a last resort, but the little group almost feared to ask the price of this ideally situated tract of virgin forest. However, their fears were grourndless, and they succeeded in buying our campus for the very reasonable sum of S1800. This amount was borrowed and work was begun. It is perhaps significant that the first shovel of dirt was removed by a returned missionary, Rev. Isaac Hess, since about one-third of the graduates have gone to the foreign mission field. ' Although the first building was not yet completed, classes were started in Fort Wayne the following winter at the City Mission on East Columbia t Street, and the students lived i.n homes nearby. The new building, ADMIN- E ISTRATION BUILDING, was rushed to completion in Ianuary, 1905, and the l l classes of the Bible Training School were moved there. , P , 1 H 1 , Y ..

' The an services were from its earliest years a regular part ofthe school lite. The Quiet Hours also had their beginning with the school. These features have not changed. The growth ot the school made necessary other changes, however. ln addition to the regular Bible course a Bible-Music course was soon introduced. Several years later the Mission Band commenced the support of Rev, Clayton D. Steiner, a Bible Institute grad- uate laboring in Peru, South America. The steady increase in the number of students also made necessary an expansion of facilities. In 1929 an addition was proposed that would contain dormi- tory rooms and classrooms. In 1931 this building,BET1-IANY HALL, was completed at a cost of SBU,- 000 and was dedicated to the Lord. The tirst edition of the Light Tower was published this year. Since the enrollment continued to grow, the Annex was purchased in 1937, to provide living quar- ters for five married couples. The Administration Building also was quite extensively modernized the same year. Nineteen thirty-eight saw the beginning of the School of Correspondence which filled a definite need among those who could not be in residence at the Institute. Further growth demanded more room, until in 1940 plans tor a Music Hall were submitted. Since it was soon evi- dent that the original plans for only a music hall would not meet the need, they were enlarged to include classrooms, a gymnasium, a dining room. and a chapel. This much needed building, FOUNDERS' MEMORIAL, was completed in 1942 at a cost of S1l0,000. A further addition to the curriculum was made in 1944 when a summer term was added to th daily Chapel Hour and the Weekly Mission B d ' e regular schedule. ll Progress is still being made along every line of school life and work. Again the complaint is, "Beho1d now, the place , . . is too strait for us." After the death of our beloved President, I. E. Ramseyer, many inquiries and suggestions rela- tive to a memorial were made. It seemed to be generally felt that some appropriate memorial should he undertaken. The General Committee of the Missionary Church Association felt that since many local churches, The Bible Institute, and other friends may wish to share in whatever would be done. it would be in order for such a memorial to be undertaken. A Committee appointed by the General Conference of the Missionary Church Association to draw up plans and solicit funds for this undertaking consists of Mr, S. A. Lehman of Fort Wayne: Mr. N. E. Roth of Grabill, Indiana: Mr. C. H. Muselman ol Berne, Indiana: Mr. F. W. Lagerholm of Chicago, Illinois: Rev. V. O. Harrold of Fort Wayne, Indiana: Rev. Earl Leonard of Peoria, Illinois: Rev. Q. I. Everest of South Bend, Indiana: Rev. Eli Steiner of Bluffton, Ohio: and L. Shirl Hatfield of Pandora. Ohio. To this number, the Committee is authorized to add an additional six names as it may deem wise. The committee has already added the names of Rev. I. A. Ringenberg: Mr. S. S. Gerig, Mr. Marion D. Lochner, Mr. Bert Hollopeter, all of Fort Wayne, and Mr. I. Francis Chase of Chicago, Illi- nois, It has also organized itself and elected the following officers: Mr. S. A. Lehman, Chairman: Rev. I. A. Ringenberg, Secretary: and Mr. S. S. Gerig, Treasurer. Since "Daddy" Ramseyer was in all things a very practical man and not given to expenditures for mere show, it was felt that the memorial should be in keeping with that principle. There was a 5 l'f"'l:ll'ae1 ...A fre , .ff ,f - 'L' r ? on ,Xml it , , t 'C T'-L T' lads, ,V,. .1512 v nl A rrpgr . , r A proiect that had been on "Daddy" Ramseyer's heart and to which he had directed an initial Sl,- 000.00 given him to place as he felt it was needed most. This proiect was in the form of a head- quarters building that would meet the various needs of the Bible Institute and the Missionary Church Association. The memorial proposed to meet this need is a building so arranged that the first iloor can be utilized tor ofiices. committee rooms, a book store, and probably, some apartments or rooms as space may permit. The upper floors are to be arranged into apartments and rooms suitable to the needs of the Institute and the Association. The estimated cost of this proposed new building is Sl50,000, The building will be held in trust by the Trustees of the Missionary Church Association and its use directed by a committee. two-thirds oi whose members are to be appointed by the General Committee of the Missionary Church Association and one-third by the Governing Board of the Institute. Six men have given 51000.00 each for the purchase oi a suitable lot which has been secured at a cost of S6000.00. This lot, 125 by 128 feet, is located on the southeast corner of South Wayne Avenue and Rudisill Boulevard diagonally across from the Bible Institute. In addition the students and alumni of the Bible Institute have raised in cash and subscriptions. over S4000.00. A number of other gifts have been given by interested friends. l 2. Bethany Hall 3.

The Annex 4- V QA. ., , "1 fd'- x EC 66 raining for Service and Service in Training" has been the apt and pertinent motto of the Fort Wayne Bible Institute since its establishment in 1904. Moreover. dur- ing the years of its existence it has always tried to translate this motto into actual ex- perience. This it still endeavors to do today. The accomplishment of such a practical purpose demands teachers and teaching of the highest order. It necessitates that every member of t.he Faculty must not only know the Truth experientially. but it must be enshrined in his life, as Truth was in- carnated in the life of Iesus Christ. This living exposition of the Truth continues, in and out of the class room, until Truth becomes personified in the student. Such is the divine program! Such a program would fail of accomplishment were it not for the beneticent min- istry ol the Spirit of God. He distributes spiritual gifts to saved men and women: and these individuals, in turn, are given by Him for the ministry of the Church, the Body of Christ. The gifts of the Spirit of God. however. are always potential. They are to be dis- covered within Christian personality like buried treasure. They need to be develop- ed, dedicated to God used in His service, and distributed among others. For the re- alization of this obiective the Bible Institute of Fort Wayne and its Faculty finds its fruitful field of Christian service. It was built to fill such a need. It is maintained to render such service. It is for the accomplishment of this spiritual ministry that the Fort Wayne Bible Institute and its Faculty dedicate themselves. iii .. rf " 1 -tr L X ' .11 Ill 1 iildrinimui , , , oiinsrnosi .. 3 r. Pfundstein enters the Chapel, seats himself at the organ, and begins the prelude. Mr. tDocJ Steiner walks in VERY early. Mr. tPopl Gerber hurries in turning the pages of a hymn- book, sets it on the piano, walks over to the organ to give the number, and then goes to the pulpit, ready to begin the opening song. Mr. Shank walks in with a worried look. He is try- ing to figure how to get the Light Tower ready cn time. Misses White and Butz enter togeth- er, discussing the problem of preparing their meals while handling a full load of teaching. Dean CL. HJ Ringenberg walks in, his mind arranging the many announcements which must be made. Since Mr. Leightner also has an announcement to make, he seats himself on the platform this morning rather than on the back seat of the chapel. Mr. Shepley enters, deep in E 1? ri if it iii Witt tilt il-wi musings on philosophy. Even President tl. AJ Ringenberg has found time, despite numerous duties, to be with us for his bi-weekly chapel message. 'Guess they are all here. No! Here comes Mrs, Smith from a last-minute explanation with a Greek student concerning the use of the genitive absolute. And there is Miss Lehner, who has just finished ironing out a prob- lem with her Bethany Hall girls. These are our leaders. With great patience they strive to teach us Truth. Ot course they make mistakes occasionally. CWe are happy for this, for We know not how we could live in the presence of perfection.l But we must say that we have a group of capable and consecrated leaders, and we give grateful thanks to God for them. -mug. a A MESSAGE FRUM t t 1 QM., V REV. I. A. RINGENBEHG THE PRESIDENT he apostle Paul gave most time! ly and pointed exhortations to Timo- thy, his son in the faith, These exhor- tations indicated the deep desire of the Apostle for this young minister. Three of these are so inclusive that they become basic to the others. There could be no more fitting words to young people who are preparing to serve in the Gospel than these, es- pecially in days such as are upon us. Therefore, they are passed on to you as my sincerest hearts' desire for you. "Endure hardness as a good sol- dier of Iesus Christ." There is no call- ing that dare demand more of hard- ships and self-denial than the Gospel ministry, whether at home or abroad. lt will become necessary for you to stand firmly against most deceptive and insidious evils. Unless you are ready to take your stand regardless of cost, and if needs be alone, you will be ensnared and defeated by it. "Study to show thyself approved unto God." lt will need to be remembered that you have only one person to please, God, lt is He who sends you forth, cares for you: and it is to Him that you must give account. lt may seem necessary today to please certain other folks, but if in doing so you lose the approval of God, your seeming advantage will be your ruin and you will end in defeat. "Preach the word." You have only one message to carry, the Word of God. Others may in- sist on a large ministry, but you may well content yourself to be the messenger and mouthpiece of God. His Word will meet your own need for time and eternity, It alone will furnish food for the souls of your listeners. It presents the only way of sal- vation for lost souls and a lost world. lt will stand when all else fails and falls. God entrusts you with the glorious privilege of being His messenger boy, to carry His all important Word to those who perish without it. x ' S an Tlltl mm VI' 'I'IlF F001' I 2 ll Ill qi, 5 ' F-. s AIG. ...ef-I' .4-4" -um-nm f wt wl 'x'-Minn Y Y J H' 5-1 'VY U wr , y y me 1 W 1 ,ull 5, may 1 I Y I .

This golden chain begins and ends with God. But between its ends this chain encompasses the world and binds it to the heart of God. The intervening links in this divine chain are the faculty members and the student body of the Bible Institute. Both, undef the rninistration of the Spirit, receive and give. Truth is received in order that it may be given to others. If it is freely given by the members' of the Faculty, it is readily received by the students themselves. Accordingly, each student looks upon himself as the repository into which each faculty member is pouring the riches of his own study and experience and first-hand acquaintance with God. Consequently, each student becomes the trustee of everything he receives. And :r KD 5. E "1 U so 2 Q. U1 5. rr 1: 9. if "1 9. :v CD "1 P vv :s O E. 5 to 5 9.

However, great improvement has been noted in their general punctuality. Another trouble is the students' persistence in moving farther and farther back every day: although they have been given numerous oral and written exhortations to come to the front. Perhaps the reason for this is that many students expect to sit in the very front as leaders the rest ot their lives, and desire to make the best of the days when they can sit unobtrusively in the very back of the chapel. May we here note our thanks for the labor of Professors Ringenberg and Steiner in getting the students in the Center section far enough forward to take a good picture. But, aside from the humorous vein, the students acknowl- edge the "Chapel Hour" as a time when they have been given food for thought, when they have been quickened in their souls, and when they have been drawn nearer to God. Together we thank God for it. u-Z 4 I 1 W ll W fill ll I fill I if? Q' tif. lip U li tbl lg wget my Li r is fi f' President .,........ Gerald Ringenberg Vice-President ,.... ......

The waves of spiritual blessings and fellowship have been uplifting in the class meetings which have been held the first Thursday evening of each month. Several of these meetings have been entirely devotional with a mess- age from the Word by the chaplain, followed by praise and prayer. In oth- er meetings, a period of devotion has been followed by the class business meeting. Highlights of the senior events include the Iunior-Senior banquet, the "Senior Outing," Baccalaureate, and Commencement. Bev Torrey lohnson, founder of the "Youth for Christ Rally" in Chicago, is our Commencement speaker. A GA 1 Y . if , V, 4 sr 3 4 ? in It ...hw ',- -Q V' Qi- 4 - an ' -' .fv-H - ESL" 2' 1 I' A .

The first attitude is cornmiserationg the second is consecration. The blessings received in consecration to lesus Christ motivate Christian service at the Fort Wayne Bible institute. Its student body sees the world as a gigantic har- vest field, whitened unto harvest. It beholds the people of the earth as sheep without a shepherd. It notes the lack of laborers and the absence of under-shepherds, And im- mediately the individual response is, "Here am lg send me!" The Spaniards stamped on their coins"Ne Plus Ultra"-"nothing beyond." How- ever, after the discovery of America this motto became "Plus Ultra"-"more beyond." The students of the Bible Institute believe this is true in a spiritual sense, and they with other consecrated young people are attempting the seemingly impossible task of taking the whole Bible to the Whole world. 0F Tllll FIIIISS Milo iii T H .t'I'l'l'IIIl Moi MISSIONS "Vision without work is visionary: work without vision is mercenary: but vision and work is missionary," Deep in the heart of the founders of the Bible Institute was the vision of lost souls both at home and abroad. Having the vision, they began to work in behalf of the great missionary enterprise. They labored in prayer and in training young people for Chris- tian service. The Great Commission is the only commission. The Church has no other busi- ness. The world-field is the only field. Missions play a great part in our school curriculum because our leaders recognize that the first work and the chief work of the whole Church is to give the Gospel to the whole world. "The world is redeemed, but it does not know it." And it never will know until the Church publishes the good news everywhere through its living witnesses. Christ will never change His plan. He will wait until His followers fulfill His ex- pectations. The horizon of the students is widened to the whole world of human need through the Friday evening Mission Band service, the Missionary Prayer Meetings, and the missionary courses offered in the curriculum. In the Mission Band services returned missionaries from all parts of the world present a real challenge to us of the vast need of ambassadors for Christ. Millions of lost souls, lost because all have sinned, are still waiting in heathen darkness for someone to bring them the Light of the Gospel. As the students are praying in the Missionary Prayer Meetings, God is working in other parts of the earth. News reaching us of answers to prayer encourages us to be fervent in prayer. Students pray for the lost, bear one another's burdens, and pray the Lord of the harvest that He will send forth laborers into His harvest. The courses offered in missions acquaint the student with the indi- vidual fields, the work accomplished, the outstanding problems and needs of each field, missionary administration and support, as well as the quali- fications of missionaries. Many former students have already obeyed Christ's command in preaching the Gospel: and at present many others, as missionary candidates, are awaiting the door to open. The need is great. Students are continually responding by saying, "Thy call I will x E iT TIIH l'00T obey." "Why should we hear twice before all have heard once?" ve- -. .v.. . 1 yzgg "'.w?igj fin .- . on 5 fl ' .2 .fi sl fad' -1...

The great fields of China, lapan, French Indo-China, Tibet, Korea, Manchuria, and Mongolia are called to our attention on Thursday. On Friday we concern ourselves with Europe, the Near East, and the lews. The needs of Alaska, Labrador, Canada, and the Tract Team are presented on Saturday. On Sunday we remember the Nether- lands East Indies, the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Malay, Pacific Islands, and the schools Gospel teams that are ministering throughout the Tri-State area. 5 0'BL0BKl3EI1lUQlYERMEETING In every hour full sixty minutes, And what if He, our Lord and Master, Four and twenty hours each day: When he walked life's toilsome road, And yet, no time for intercession I-lad spent I-lis hours in earthly pleasure, For the lost along life's way? None to lift a brother's load? Suppose the Cross our Christ evaded, Dare we recline so idly dreaming Willing not to pay the cost: While the minutes pass away? Oh think, my friend, what we would No!

An offering for missions is taken in each service, and all of the money thus received goes to help those who are taking the Gos- pel to those in need. ln View of helping many of our own graduates who are candidates for the mission field, this year's Mission Band has set its goal at 51500. Of course the high light of each service is the missionary message from one who has seen the need firsthand. As we heard these stirring messages from the fields of labor, We are moved to pray the "Missionary Prayer": "Lord, send us a vision of souls in need, Regardless of color or race or creed, Or whether the surface be polished or rough: lf outside Thy kingdom, that is enough- Enough for Thy servant, Whose duty is plain, To bring them to Christ and His kingdom again. lt matters but little how sunken they be, Their lives are transfigured, when Iesus they see. So send us the vision and give us the grace To bring in the lost to the light of Thy face." -anonymous. AT THE l00T , gif . T 7 ,' ,.1-If' V . X I 0F THE C3083 l GOSPEL TEAMS The Gospel teams have become a distinct part oi the Bible institute. One can scarcely think oi the institute without thinking of the Gospel teams that represent the school. At the beginning ot each school year, when most of the teams are iormed, the students are enthusiastic to enter this special work. Members oi the Gospel teams have wonderful opportunities to serve the Lord and to gain invaluable experience in appearing before audiences. Ten Gospel teams have been engaged practically every Sunday during the school year. There have been occasions when the demands for Gospel teams have exceeded the supply. Long-distant trips have been curtailed somewhat because oi the gasoline and tire situation: but, nevertheless, trips were made to points as tar distant as Detroit, Saginaw, and Battle Creek, Michigang Hamilton and Toledo, Ghiog Elkhart, Indiana, and Chicago, lllinois. The teams have aided in revival services in many ditierent denominationsg they have assisted in Youth Conferen- ces: and they have taken complete charge oi worship services. Most important of all is the fact that they have invariably returned to the school with reports of victory. For the many souls who have been saved and sanctified through the ministry of these teams, we give all glory to God. 13 Coyla Crowe-Second Soprano Eula Wiseflfirst Soprano Daisy Vifise-First Alto lla Crow-Second Alto AT THE FUUT lb? ,Q .9 163 .: 4: , JJ, ' gf, - V ,ff z 2 1 . 452 ' ...N .

This chorus of one hundred two voices was under the direction oi Professor Oliver Steiner with Mrs. Steiner at the piano and Professor Robert Pfundstein at the console ot the organ. The soloists were: Sopranoffl-'lorence Habegger, Cleveland, Ohiop Alto-WDorothy Lugibihl Lehman, Baltimore, Maryland: Tenor'-'Edward Burkhalter, Wlieaton, Illinois: Bass 'Wilsoii lones, Chi- cago, lllinois. -'at lb' Every Monday and -Wednesday at seven-thirty the mem- bers of the chorus found their way into the chapel for some real work on this great oratorio. The hours spent in intensive rehearsing for the presentation of "The Messiah" were truly worthwhile and blessed. Much time was spent in drilling for the correct tone quality and enunciation. Training received both educationally and spiritually in rehearsing tor the rendi- tion of this marvelous oratorio will be valued throughout the coming years. The prayer and aim oi this chorus is that its members might sing to the best of their ability the inatchless Word oi God into the hearts of others, and through this means be made a blessing to those who hear them. iiinnnC""""'1'f"""' " n-1" ' iiiw ,.-X if V! Fl Ln! Hut' ll! HV ll . H QD it I The orchestra, under the instruction ot Professor Steiner, is composed of from ten to twelve students of the Institute who play during the song services oi our Mission Band. This group inspires the students to sing with greater zeal. The members of the orchestra enjoy serving the Lord in this way with the tal- ents which He has given them to use. This is not an organized group but is composed of any who have instruments and are willing to play. They must sacrifice a little time since they meet every Friday afternoon for practice. However, playing each week in this way gives valuable experience, especial- ly to those of the brass section as it gives them practice in transposing. The orchestra is a blessing to those who play as well as to those who listen, -Z f- , i- '-r - ij 7, N ,p , 4 l , VN! r me iii fre fr' - is tif tim if, if L.-' Q. ill... LJ! "Take Christ as your Saviour, He died for youg Live Christ among others, He'll keep you true: Give Christ your best service Loyal and true: Take Christ, Live Christ, Give Christ, And the best will come back to you." This theme chorus opened the Fifth Annual Fort Wayne Youth Conference which was held on October 20, 21, 22, l944. Several interesting features high lighted this year's Con- ference which was the biggest and best in the history of this organization. The evangelist for the Conference was Rev. Quinton I. Everest, pastor of "Your Worship Hour" radio pro- gram and of the River Park Gospel Center of South Bend, Indiana. Since Mr. Everest grirduired irorn the Bible lnstitute and has a large radio ministry at the present time, he was well aualiiied to understand the spiritual problems of young people today. His forceful, Yygirit-auicl-cened messages led many to seek the Lord in saving and sanctifying power. L - 4 .4 1754:-S.- "Q ..,. ...- cf' W ' N Rev.

Long, Rev. L. H. Roebuck, Rev. Tilman Amstutz, and a member of the Institute faculty, Prof. Oliver Steiner. A missionary emphasis was also added to the Conference when Rev. Charles P. Culver, missionary and world traveler, gave a challenging message Saturday afternoon. His vivid presentation of the need inspired many to consecrate themselves wholly for missionary service wherever the Lord leads them. Many young people went out from these meetings to fulfill the motto of the Confer- ence: "American Youth for Christ". fsmf C f.. ..... . it . . w .ft C Pb N25 1... .fa it-VN: ttf--X, :- 4 '1- fk ft ff, t.ttft,.ti tl" "t til l'lttlt . tv:"t't tt t 5 E -Sf I STREET MEETING . .

L::f i t "Be ye doers of the Word and not hearers only" has had its practical aspect in the efforts of the Child Evangelism Fellowship. It has been the privilege of some of our young ladies to participate in the work of this nationally and internationally known organization as it has had opportunity to open doors in the city of Fort Wayne. Prior to the formation of class- es, several of the students made a systematic canvass of an assigned territory with the pur- pose of securing homes in which the classes could meet, and to interest parents in sending their children to the Child Evangelism classes. Our teachers meet approximately seventy-five children per week, many of whom may be numbered as a 'iharvest of Souls." They enter enthusiastically into the singing of l Gospel songs and each week store in their minds and hearts memory verses from God's Word. Our prospects for continued ministry in this field are encouraging. May we continue to pray that the field white unto harvest with the souls of little children may have an in- creasing number of reapers. f 1 I 1 . I 1 5 I i Sfuzmdzzz-1' G15-nn M.'H1'1orx, W .

This Team, chosen from the fellows of the institute, distribute Gospel tracts in the beer gardens, bowling alleys, and shoe-shining parlors of Fort Wayne. In this manner of presenting the Word, the members of the Team are privileged to give out an average of three thousand tracts each Saturday evening. These tracts are provided by the voluntary donations of the ln- stitute, faculty, and students. Two fellows follow each of the five routes, distributing the tracts in over a hundred taverns throughout the city. In addition to distributing the tracts, the fellows deal personally with those who express interest in the Gospel. God has said that His Word will not return unto Him void, and He has honored this promise through the salvation of a number of souls. UDENT PASTURS During the past year several students have been going out from the Bible Institute as student pastors. Many churches, representing seven denominations, have been serv- ed regularly in this way. The student pastors are a busy lot for they must carry on their regular school work in addition to ministering to the spiritual needs of their flocks. Despite their many duties, they are happy because they have learned to trust the Lord for their recurring needs. This practical training, which carries out the motto of the ln- stitute, will surely stand them in good stead in the future years of their ministry for God. NDAY SCHUUL TEACHERS Eighteen students as regular Sunday school teachers have also been carrying out the motto of the Bible Institute, "Training for Service and Service in Training." Nine churches of six denominations have had a real need met in the teaching ot their class- es. In addition to these "regulars" numerous students have substituted at various times during the year when the assigned teachers have been unable to take their class' es. The students in these classes range in age from the energetic youngster to the old saint, rooted and grounded in the Word. The school rejoices in the good Work done by these teachers. Especially do we rejoice in the young lives that will be devoted to the Master for life because of this faithful service. I 5 i l ,n 4",rmT : E The qirls and fellows each gather in the gymnasium twice a week for the proverbial "daily dozen." After an opening word of prayer the students strug- gle through a brief period of calisthenics, followed by any of a Variety of com- petitive qames. The Apostle Paul says in l Timothy 4:8 that "bodily exercise is profitable for a little" CH. VJ, and the students endeavor to gain as much profit from qyrn' classes as possible, D ex '. .F 'fl'-r i 'M 'T Q T it U sn-1 t a t is -,-,f f"T bi - 1 -98. f--U HERE AND THERE .maxi -..HL ar- ' wN,P' Y . 1" X , ' , M E Q. uf.-Sf . ,.- ., W " 54 " 5 "1Qfk rw E- X ' gzmsf. . .farffrsmerib , asf ' : - Y 4 zQQEQQgSI.,S ,,gf. .. ,f ' A SQ mfg.

'Mx 'J 'QE' f if Y0lllt LIGHT 'l'0WElt HPAFF The Light Tower is the official, annual publication of each graduating class ot the Fort Wayne Bible Institute. The purpose for publishing The Light Tower is to present the members of the Senior Class as well as the other students and the members of the faculty to the wide circle of Christian people interested in the Bible Institute, to give a true represen- tation in writing and pictures of the spirit and life of the school, and to exalt Christ in such a way as to challenge many youth to enter the great work of world evangelism. Though The Light Tower is published by the Senior Class, many of the assistant officers on the Staff are Iuniors. In fact, a member of the Iunior Class, Mr. Dingeman Teuling, has very efficiently filled the office of production and art editor and de- serves much of the credit for the attractiveness of this year- book. The Light Tower Staff has been a busy lot. Some people have wondered why a light burned in the southeast basement room of Founders Memorial until very late during many winter nights. A peep in the door would have frequently revealed Wayne Brenneman, Dingeman Teuling, Gerald Ringenberg, and sometimes other members of the Staff hard at work in the midst of stacks of manuscripts, piles of photographs, and tables covered with layouts and designs. However, sometimes their more immediate task was to take care of several quarts of ice cream. The smell of rubber cement, the chatter of a typewriter, and the discussions over technical points in punctuation rais- ed by Mr. Shank helped to characterize the atmosphere of the Light Tower room. Although the production of this annual re- quired much hard work, the Staff thoroughly enjoyed it. With the prayer that through its efforts the Christ of the Cross may be exalted and that souls may find in Him all their needs supplied, the Staff presents The Light Tower of 1945. FLOYD A.
