Upon becoming a Christian l was not required to make a fool out of myself. Therefore, I can't unders- tand subjecting other brothers and sisters of Christ to activities that don't go along with "letting love between the brethren continue." I particularly do not like the punish- ment for non-cooperating students. I will oppose the continuation of initia- tion next year. by Tim Stair Fl'9Si'1I'T19I'1 -lub., . v! ...fa , . . . S React to Initiation up .. w. f -. s From the school fight song to the sound of the anteater, from greased hair to bobby-socks the word was "fun"-good, clean fun. Granted, we were humbled often enough. Having to sing the school fight song in front of the whole chapel is not an enviable experience. Nor does having one's hair dyed red with catsup in Kangaroo Court give one the desired "dry look." But all-in-all I think we were lucky. It should have been a lot stricter. We look forward to next year when the shoe will be on the other foot! by Gary Gilpin Spiritual Emphasis Week: Different This Year Somehow it was not the same. FWBC has traditionally begun each semester by focusing on the spiritual aspect of our lives. In the past this involved bringing on campus a special speaker who twice each day opened the Word to the FWBC family. During the rest of the day he might be found leading a class discus- sion or talking with students in Witmer lounge or the cafeteria. This year FWBC, in cooperation with over one hundred area churches, went each evening to the Allen County Memorial Coliseum to participate in the Key 73 Crusade featuring Dr. Myron S. Augsburger. Many students, especially at first, were not too enthused about the change from the past. A few did not like the ecumenical emphasis of Key 73, but more simp- ly disliked the inconvenience of a drive across town and a longer program. Since Key 73 is an evangelistic endeavor, the messages centered on becoming a Chris- tian rather than Christian maturity. Others missed the unity among the student body and the fellowship with the speaker that past Spiritual Emphasis Weeks have known. There were, however, unique advantages to FWBC's involvement with Key 73. Students became in- volved in the outreach and helped as counselors, ushers, and choir members. Also, the college was able to hear Dr. Myron S. Augsburger, regarded as one of the most articulate evangelical spokesmen of this generation. He has traveled in many parts of the world, served as a pastor, and authored nine books. President of Eastern Mennonite College and Seminary in Harrisonburg, Pennsylvania, Dr. Augsburger has earned five degrees. He preached a persuasive message that appealed to the mind as well as the heart. Two important members of Dr. Augsburger's Crusade Team were Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Masterman, who directed the musical dimension. Mr. Masterman led the singing, served as tenor soloist, and directed the mass choir. His wife, Betty, helped as organist. Coordinator for the Fort Wayne area Key 73 Crusade was Henry Schmidt. President of Encounter With Christ, Mr. Schmidt himself proved to be a capable speaker as he spoke in chapel the first two days of Spiritual Emphasis Week. The great musical talent of guest soloist Miss Joy Simpson was for many an eagerly anticipated highlight. Born into a musical family, she began piano lessons at age three and violin at seven. Later she was awarded scholarships to the Academy of Vocal Arts, Temple University, and Julliard School of Music, where she received a Master's Degree in Voice. Throughout the week she presented with her singing and piano playing a wide spectrum of musical styles. Spiritual Emphasis Week was not the same, but FWBC was not disappointed, for Key 73 provided "something refreshingly different each evening!" ef:-..1'r'.."'-':m1'1::'--ziidrfsinv T154-f' ' 'f-f2':'o".w:., "1 - in-ww s Relating One To One: An Opportunity For Learning lf any of you who were here last year attended our home basketball games you may have noticed a twelve year old boy sitting on the bench handing out sweat towels during time-outs. Or you may have seen him in our cafeteria on a Saturday afternoon putting together model cars. Then, too, you might have observed him in Weibke on Sunday afternoons determinedly fighting a losing battle of Chinese Checkers, or triumphantly dis- covering the answer to a complicated brainteaser which "greater minds" had failed to comprehend. His presence may have baffled you, but let me assure you that the freshmen were not getting smaller, and neither was he an immediate prospect for Coach. He happened to be my "little brother." In this community there is a Christian civic organization known as "Help-a-Kid" which works specifically with boys from broken homes. In the past its main function has been sending these boys to two action-packed weeks of summer camp in Canada. Last year it was decided to expand the program, and a pilot project similar to the Big Brother concept was begun. For our Christian Service assignment another fellow and myself were interviewed and then allowed to select from a predetermined list that particular boy we felt we would like to work with on a person to person basis. After I read over several application forms and evaluations land after some prayerj, I decided to work with a twelve year old named Steve. That was how I acquired my "little brother." Over the course of a year our friendship has grown, and working with Steve on a one to one basis has been one of the highlights of my Christian experience. Through this relationship I have had many oppor- tunities to learn some valuable lessons which are prov- ing vital to my Christian life and ministry. One of these lessons has been learning how to develop a genuine con- cern for Steve as an individual. I have had to discover his likes and dislikes, and his strengths and weaknesses. I have had to discover where he is actually hurting without superimposing upon him needs I think he should have. I have had to meet him where he is, and this at times has proven frustrating and difficult. Another lesson I have had to learn is that of being myself. Realizing that Steve was watching my life placed on my mind a great responsibility for maintaining a Christian testimony. However, at times I became so concerned about my testimony that I forgot Steve. I was afraid to let Steve see me as a human being shot full of weak areas. I did not want to hinder the work of the Lord in any way. I have had to learn to accept those weak spots myself and allow God to use those areas in my life as a living demonstration of His power to Steve. But one of the most exciting lessons I have had to learn through this relationship is that God still uses peo- ple to accomplish His purposes in the lives of others. God does not need me to fulfill His program for Steve, but He wants me. And all He expects of me is simply to share my life in Christ with Steve through watching television on a Sunday afternoon, wrestling on the living room floor, playing countless games of checkers when I just do not feel like it, going bowling, listening to small talk, eating at Burger Chef, sharing encouraging words, doing what he wants to do, reading the comics in Sun- day's paper. God only asked me to be available and He promised to do the rest. by Ken Schmoyer 5 1:1 'Irby .6 .ar-'v Garry Cline, Rick Engle, Al Seawell, Marti Zimmerman, Judy Engle, Nancy Waits, Maurice Clinger, and Larry Lewis. Positive Side Blends For Christ Positive Side '73, a talented musical group of eight students, traveled this summer representing Fort Wayne Bible College. More important, however, was their sen- sitive representation of Jesus Christ. Variety and individuality were certainly evident within the group. Nancy Waits, the "Peachi' from Georgia, flavored the group with her spontaneous humor. Larry Lewis, the handsome athlete from Witchita, Kansas, carried the bass and captured the attention of many interested girls. He seldom said much, but his humor was there none the less. On the other hand, was observed the unpredictable character of Garry Cline, whose most common phrases were, "I'm sorry!" and, "What did I say?" Garry, a junior from Delta, Ohio, just does not know when to quit talking. Marti Zimmerman, an attractive brunette from Archbold, Ohio, added a sense of calmness and self- control to the group. Al Seawell, from Morristown, ln- diana, always enjoyed making side comments and play- ing the electric bass. Always cheering were the vibrant and radiant smiles ofludy Engle, the lead soprano from Richmond, Indiana. Then there was the computer-like mind of Maurice Clinger, sound technician from Garden City, Michigan, who was responsible for the mikes, levels, balance, taped accompaniments, tone and blends. Rick Engle from Lynn, Indiana, was the hard- driving student director. - At first glance, Positive Side appeared to be a hopeless hodge-podge. Yet many have felt it was one of the most successful tours ever sent out by FWBC. The busy schedule included thirteen weeks of singing in churches, camps, conferences, business meetings, park concerts and traveling from Ohio to Kansas, from Michigan to Kentucky. It was encouraging to see God melt all of the per- sonalities into one solid unit, yet allow each of us to maintain our personal identities. Because it was a group dedicated to God, He could see us. . X .3LX,.i The Singing Collegians: In Journeyings Often In Practices Ever Singing Collegians. an eight year tradition of Fort Wayne Bible College is this year, for the first time, presenting Time and Eternity. This is a new approach to giving the gospel to high schools, coffee houses, and youth oriented meetings. Practicing, traveling, and performing, we spend a lot of time together, so the need for honesty with each other is important. Being ourselves when we are with others makes our Christianity more X' 'B A. real than if we attempted to maintain one role on stage and another role with friends. The medium we use is music and individual testimonyg the message is Jesus Christ: Savior and Lord. Members ofthe Collegians are Renee Cook, Bob Couch, Jeanette Granger, Randy Grieser, Kent Hake, Dale Hamrick, Greg Hullinger, Dewey Johnson, Stan Kesler, Jerry Miller, Nancy Miu, Nick Miu, Carla Rupp, Janice Zimmerman, and John Clay, sound. by Nancy Miu ,, . n .I l li 'a 'Si , A . , x . ,, fm ' ' 1 A 4 ' Ax 15 , N x 3 v"-" 'anlt f' xi, y .. .K E A 5, ' " ' 1' Q , ' , ' ' if ' 77 X ' "'-5151-" 5 W vw:L--Q:19'4?'-A--1,1 Fra ' 7':JC'a1I15A',Z9bii"SQfk'm?,. - -.tirz a 'ii--25, 1 ' '- :' ig.e'e.

Other areas of his involvement include the Ex- ecutive Committee and the Adult Christian Training School. He also has a family of three: Evangeline, his wife: Roslyn, who is a lirst grader at Fort Wayne Chris- tian School: and Jocelyn, who was born in September of l973. He enjoys New Testament subjects, philosophy, and theology. An avid collector oftheological books, he numbers Francis A. Schaeffer, John R. W. Stott, F. F. Bruce, and Martyn Loyd-Jones among his favorite authors. Last year Mr. Scharfe served on the Athletic Com- mittee. a responsibility that reflects his enthusiasm for sports-he participates in softball, hockey, tennis, and ice skating. He and his daughter Roslyn ride bikes together and swim considerably, enjoying the ocean es- pecially. A native ofOttawa, Ontario. Mr. Scharfe accepted Christ at sixteen through a "simple but clear presenta- tion of the gospel." Since he enjoyed sports, mainly baseball and hockey, he wanted to become a sports reporter. but those plans diminished when he accepted Christ. He immediately became concerned with serving God, and upon high school graduation enrolled in a US' small Baptist Seminary in Toronto for a four year Bachelor of Theology program. After graduating he enrolled at Carleton University for a four year honours degree in philosophy and history. Considering graduate studies during his last year at Carleton he applied for and was awarded the James Montegomery Scholarship for graduate studies at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. Specializing in New Testa- ment. he earned his Master of Theology degree in two years. While working on his thesis at Westminster Seminary, Mr. Scharfe served as assistant to the librarian. So when he returned with his family to Canada. he was employed by the Canadian National Library as an assistant in the Reference Department and had "complete control of a small science library connected with the Department of Agriculture." During that year he received an invitation from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, to the position of full time reference librarian. He accepted the invitation, but while he was at Trinity he accepted an offer to come to F.W.B.C., convinced this was Godis plan for his life. He commented, "One of the most ex- citing things that has happened to me since coming here is the opportunity to teach. This has given me an outlet for ministry to our students for which I am grateful." Presently Mr. Scharfe is working part time on his doctrate in theology through the Chicago Lutheran School ofTheology. He presents this challenge to us: "It is incumbent upon us as members ofthe F.W.B.C. fami- ly that we develop the abilities necessary to verbalize and communicate God's truth to a world saturated by existential philosophy, and that we learn by God's grace to incorporate the principles of this truth into our own personal lives." by Pam Healy 5 Skilled Staff Man "If I were to grade him just as I do students who work for me, I would give him an excellent in every column." With those words Ed Reynolds, head of the maintenance department, evaluates the work of Mr. Johnson, a member of the F.W.B.C. staff since 1970. Joe was born in Peoria, Illinois, but grew up in nearby Sheffield. Before he came here, Joe and his fami- ly lived in rural Princeton, Illinois, where he worked as a custodian of a grade school. Then in the summer of 1970 he and his family moved to Fort Wayne. He and his wife found a house and a job at the college the same day. "The Lord seemed to have everything set up," ex- plains Joe. Joe has headed up several projects since he joined the staff. In the summer of 1970, he and a crew remodl- ed the first floor west wing in Schultz and the basement of Bethany. He put a new roof on Founders and remodled the porch at Leightner in the summer of 1971. During the summer of 1972, Joe remodled the front porch of Bethany and put a new roof on Leightner, mostly by himself. Just last summer Joe and a crew of guys diligently worked renovating Schultz basement. Also, he and Nick Lee lowered the ceiling and put new lights in the cafeteria. Joe has a good attitude, he learns fast, and is a self- starter, that is, when he has a job he does not need the details explained to him. Nick Lee, Joe's right hand man this past summer, gained some valuable experience working with Joe. 'iJoe taught me a lot this summer, things I've wanted to learn to do for a long time." Nick commented that Joe is "a low man on the totem pole" but that the college would grind to a standstill if Joe were not around. Besides his responsibilities at the college, Joe has a couple evening classes, a ministry at Holton Avenue Missionary Church, and a family. At Holton Joe is a trustee and the chairman ofthe building committee. He has charge of the Sunday School opening exercises for junior high through adult ages. He also shares in teaching the Middle Adult Sunday School class. With four children Joe is certainly kept busy at home. Rhon- da, 17, is a senior at South Side, where Tim, 16, is a sophomore. Brenda 13, is an 8th grader at Fairfield Junior High School. Linda, 9, is in the 4th grade at Harrison Hill Elementary School. The favorite family activity, besides going to church, is camping. Joe is very content here at the college. "Right now I feel I've been called here for a purpose. The Lord has blessed me in enabling me to work with my hands in carpentry and electrical work. He has put me here to use these talents." When asked if he would make this his life's work, Joe is undecided. "You don't have to be called as a minister to serve the Lord," he commented, "God can use you in any vocation." by Owen Cornelius it MNXXR Swanson Broadens Musical Horizons Many Fort Wayne Bible College students and faculty members. as well as a number from the com- munity, yy ere introduced to another form of musical ex- pression at the first of the College Community Artist Series. Mr, Chris Swansen, demonstrating the full capacity of the Moog Synthesizer, provided a thoroughly enjoyable and informative evening ofmusic. The concert contained music ranging from sacred selections of the Baroque Era to music presented purely as an art form from the newly discovered realm ofelec- tronically produced sound. These sounds included the lush quality of strings. the harsh reports of brass, the percussive beat of the rhythm section, and the strange, atonal "noises" which can be produced only by the elec- tronic ossillator. ' During intermission. Mr. Swansen proceeded to prepare the synthesizer for the remainder ofthe concert. Tapes had to be changed and settings made for the songs to follow. All ofthe sounds heard by the audience vtere produced entirely by the instrument itself. Although only the lead part could be played in concert, the other voices had been compiled previously on separate tracks of a multi-track tape recorder, thereby giying the effect of a fully orchestrated piece. Undoubtly the concert was a new listening ex- perience for the majority ofthe audience. However, one should not be offended by the fact that there are other forms of musical expression equally as valid as those to which we are accustomed. Mr. Jay Platte. Chairman of the Music Department, and all those involved in secur- ing the guest artists, are to be commended for their ef- forts to expose the college and community to the entire spectrum of musical forms. Q 464444 41514 glla 1 4 A f f Quartet Delights Meager Audience Saxophone quartets, apparently, do not generate much enthusiasm. Not too many students showed up for the second presentation of the College Community Artist Series. Those who came, however, were surprised to find themselves enjoying the University of Michigan Saxophone Quartet concert. Upon hearing the name saxophone, many people immediately associate the in- strument with jazz. Although jazz is an important music type in America, the saxophone with the richness of tone it is capable of producing, handles equally well the works of Bach, Greig, Debussy and many Neo-Classical writers. Well rehearsed, the University of Michigan Sax- ophone Quartet demonstrated a high degree of ability by their precision on fast passages, their balance and controlled tone quality. Leader Stephen Mark displayed mastery of the soprano sax, an instrument very difficult to keep in tune. Much to the delight of the audience, the concert not only included serious works, but also light pieces such as "The Gold Rush Suite." All alto sax- ophone majors from the University of Michigan, the quartet's members, Steven Mark, Patricia Nixon, John Salistian and Lynn Klock, have each been associated with the prominent saxophonist from that university, Larry Teal. The quality of this fine instrumental concert will hopefully encourage the committee of the Guest Artist Series to introduce a still wider representation of the field of music. In Memoriam Jewel Ache was a freshman at F.W.B.C. in the fall of 1972. She came with high hopes of becoming a missionary nurse and returning to Haiti where she had worked for a summer in a clinic. She loved nursing and practiced on us by passing out scores of vitamin pills at the least sign of a chill or sniffle. Her wall was plastered with cutouts from nursing school catalogues, constant reminders to spur her in her homework. Jewel was shy so not too many students knew her well, but those of us who were blessed enough to know her will never forget her love for God, her love for people, and the lessons she taught us through them. Jewel was an open friendly person, easy to talk with and always available to comfort us when troubles were building up. She gave us advice, helped solve our problems, and reconciled our misunderstandings. Sensitive to our needs, she counselled us without reluctance or imposition. Her quick infectious giggle was a delight to hear -- we had to smile whether we felt like it or not. She would laugh about anything or anyone -- often herself. Jewel, sometimes apprehensive as we all are, would wonder what the future held for her. Then she would always say that her whole life was God's. She was His regardless what purpose He would have for her. She eagerly planned for her life ministry in Haiti, but was not waiting for that time to start serving God. She served Him in Bethany with her patient, friendly smile as bell girl, and as a loving, available friend and counselor. We do not understand why the Lord would take someone so sweet from a world that needs her kindness so much. But He knows, and we rest in that confident assurance, as Jewel did. by Pamela Padgett C I ll' -a .741 41,1 4 eff RTK lx V14 ,o mg X 1-"'fT'm at .1 'H' Mia ' 1 K . . . 4. .I I-'iff I , 19.453, 4 , if W ill ,ll Ill!!

Now far ahead the Road has gone. And I must follow, if I can. Pursuing it with eager feet. Until it joins some larger way Where many paths and errands meet. And whither then? I cannot say. In the 1960's thousands of college students traveled the road of THE LORD OF THE RINGS into Middle Earth. And now the death of John Ronald Reul Tolkien on September 2 provides new impetus to reenter his world. Tolkien, one of the leading writers in the sweet world of fantasy and Faerie, was born in South Africa, orphaned at the age of twelve, and reared by a Roman Catholic priest. In 1922 A MIDDLE ENGLISH VOCABULARY secured Tolkien his status as a first-rate philologist. Indeed, THE LORD OF THE RINGS was primarily linguistic in inspriation, begun to provide the necessary background of history for Elvish tongues. His edition of SIR GAWAYNE AND THE GREEN KNIGHT is considered the authoritative text of that cryptic medieval tale. At the time of his retirement in 1959, he was Merton Professor of English Language and Literature at Oxford University, where he had taught for thirty-four years. Most readers, however, remember Tolkien as sub- creator of Middle Earth. One is drawn into the world of THE LORD OF THE RINGS with almost cultic effect. Tolkien uses archetypes and myth to reach us at levels seldom contacted, drawing the depth of our basic needs to our consciousness. He satisfies our yearning for "a deliverer, providentially secured to vicariously purge our world of seemingly inexorable evil, reconcile us to the universe, absolve our guilt and offer us love and the secure feeling that we are home at last." Although Tolkien declared emphatically that THE LORD OF THE RINGS has no allegorical elements, the epic reflects an imagination enmeshed with and controlled by the Christian story. As he once remarked to Clyde Kilby, "I am a Christian and of course what I write will be from that essential viewpoint." Commenting on the gospel story, he wrote: "The Birth of Christ is the eucatastrophe of man's history. The Ressurection is the eucatastrophe of the Incarnation. This story begins and ends in joy. It has pre-eminently the 'inner consistency of reality.' There is no tale ever told that men would rather find was true, and none which so many skeptical men have accepted as true on its own merits." In THE LORD OF THE RINGS Tolkien provides the Christian reader with a fresh perspective on the "eucatastrophe" of history, the Resurrection. And he provides non-Christians with new -- or perhaps eternally old -- images by which to view the universe. As the great Rennaisance scholar C. S. Lewis said of myth in general, "I shall never escape this. This will never escape me. These images have struck roots far below the surface of my mind." Still round the corner there may wait A new road or a secret gate: And though I oft have passed them by. A day will come at last when I Shall take the hidden paths that run West of the Moon, East of the Sun. Pete and Todd Play Basketball To Share Christ ' '... Power is perfected in weakness." This par- ticular spiritual truth became an exciting reality in my life as the Venture for Victory basketball team traveled through Africa this past summer. In the course of six weeks, thirty games. and fifty basketball clinics, I began to understand just what Paul was saying in II Corinthians l2:9. None of the eleven Ventury for Vic- tory team members were tremendous ball players, remarkable singers. or professional speakers, but I soon recognized that extraordinary talent is not a necessary requirement for serving Christ, or for spreading the gospel. No matter where we were playing-Ghana or Rhodesia. city or village. school or playground-the people responded to God's working in their lives through us, Over one hundred Africans accepted Christ, and many more desired the Bible correspondence course that we offered, Day after day we. as a team, realized that God was using us for His honor and glory-to br- ing people to Himself. When one of us missed a lay-up or kicked the ball out of bounds, or hit a wrong note during a halftime song, we rejoiced in our confident assurance that the claims of Christ were being shared despite any of our human shortcomings. Truly, the times that we recognized our weaknesses were the times when the power of Christ was most evident, and spiritual victories were seen. Three weeks after I got back to America, I received a letter from a young Ghanean man with whom I had the privilege of sharing Christ. The salutation of his letter said, "Dear brother in Jesus Christ." Just reading that letter was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life, My thoughts drifted back to those African towns and villages. Sure it wasn't always fun eating donkey meat or rice with curry. And the living accom- modations weren't always what we wanted. But the peo- ple were friendly. open, interesting, and most of all, in need of the Savior. I rejoice in the fact that God can even use basketball players to share the gospel. Gaining a "brother in Jesus Christ" means infinitely more than receiving a silver trophy or a blue ribbon. tlvlatthew 6: is-:ii by Todd Habegger 2 f"1 . 4. I S.. i f .

L : g Summer Missions: No Typical Story It's not that I have anything against cities, you un- derstand. It's just that once you've seen one big city, you've seen them all except for a few different monuments here and there. But the countryside . . . that's another story! The people of the Philippines refer to their small towns out in the country not as 'towns' but as 'barrios'. So after spending three weeks in relatively large cities, my partner, Ginny, and I were met by Miss Margaret Shick, a seasoned missionary of five years, who would be our director for the next two weeks. After loading our luggage into an open pom boat, we were on our way to the most educational and eye-opening experiences of d , 53129 . "" " I ' in our entire trip. By pom boat and foot, we worked our way up the coast, presenting 12 programs in the small churches scattered along the way. We even enjoyed hik- ing over the mini-mountains to the various churches further inland-it was a great way to see the countryside and to get a fantastic tan! Finally at the farthest point of our journey up the coast, we were deposited into the hands of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Huegle, who work with a small church among the Manobo tribes people. Our two days with the Huegles were meant to be a vacation but we were able to present one program at the local church. After the service was completed, the pastor gave an altar call, and to our utter amazement, 20 people came forward and prayed! We were absolute- ly stunned . . . until Bert informed us later that all those who came forward were the regular aisle-walkers. Not resistance, but this easy cooperation intended to please the missionaries, looms as a hindrance to discipl- ing believers. Another aspect of the Huegles' varied ministry is their medical work. Neither have had any formal train- ing, but the unavailibility of qualified medical personnel and the poverty of the people move them to distribute medicine and injections to save the lives of some of the people. They do not know what the consequences would be if they were discovered, but they feel the needs deeply and are willing to take the risk involved. Many people came each day for medicine, some with skin ulcers, children with sores on their heads, older people with bad coughs-just about anything. It was a good oppor- tunity to talk with the few who knew snatches of English and to show them that we were concerned about them. The one case that stands out most vividly in my mind is a small boy who had had a very bad cough for six months. His father had taken him to a witchdoctor who had tied a tiny bag around his waist to ward off the evil spirits. Mr. Huegle told the father that he would pray for him if the bag was removed. Imagine our surprise when the father immediately and willingly removed the bag! Once again I was impressed by the confidence plac- ed in the missionaries and the responsibility such cooperation demands. The second day I was with the Huegles we all went to Zamboanga City where their six year old daughter was to begin school. Her parents had gradually prepared her for that day, so that rather than dreading her day of departure, she was anticipating it! It was a situation which was well worth seeing firsthand, for it is a controversial area of missions. Those two days were the fastest two days of our summer missionary work. Although they were meant to allow us to rest after our strenuous activities, there was something greater to be gained from our time with them-the realization that there is no typical missionary story, for every missionary must adapt to the needs of his people. by Sue Boyer Missions Conference Asserts Jesus Is Lord Since l97l the Fort Wayne Bible College and the First Missionary Church havejoined in a great missions conference to help keep in focus the world-wide out- reach of the Church. Missions Conference '73, "Jesus is Lord." helped FWBC think clearly about the im- plications of the Lordship of Jesus. Dr. Mariano Di Gangi, North American Director of the Bible and Medical Missionary Fellowship, open- ed Missions Conference with four days of expository preaching. A relined speaker who pastored the historic Tenth Presbyterian Church, Dr. Di Gangi is remembered especially for the Biblicism ofhis messages. From England for the next two days of Missions Conference came Rev. David Stuart Briscoe. Presently the Assistant General Director of Torchbearers. pastor ofThc Elmbrook Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin, and president of a radio and tape ministry called Telling the Truth. Inc.. Rev. Briscoe soon won the attention of FWBC with the exuberance of his preaching. His messages from selected passages in the Psalms built well on the groundwork laid by Dr. Gangi in focusing on the theme "Jesus is Lord." The final day of Missions Conference Rev, Pius Wakatama, a native of Rhodesia, now completing a Master's in Mass Communications, and James Harmon, a Nigerian pastor studying at Bethel College, gave living testimony to the validity of missions. These main speakers were supplemented by six missionaries from around the world: Rev. Gerald Steele. Brazil: Rev. John Bontrager, Nigeriag Rev. Ralph Brandenburg, Dominican Republicg Miss Geraldine Gerig, Sierra Leone: Miss Mary Paulus, Nigeria, and Rev. John Blosser, India. Each service benefited from spirited congregational singing and the variety of good special music. Steve Walley's chorus "Jesus is Lord" was enjoyed all week. Students were encouraged to stop for a few minutes of intercessory prayer in the chapel on their way to or from the display and cafe area. Again this year the displays reflected creativity and hard work. Visitors entered into the worlds of the Apostle Paul and William Carey and then moved via slides and tapes into the modern world of missions, A bookshop offered literature and tapes on missions. Morning offerings, a total of Sl,050.60, went to kick-off the SMF project of raising 55,000 to purchase a van for the Jamaica Theological Seminary.

Missions is at the core of F.W.B.C., which exists to train people for Christian service around the world. and SMF is committed to the promotion of Missions in the world today. In 1905 by request of the Governing Board, the Students' Mission Band of The Fort Wayne Bible Institute was organized. The first meeting was held in Schultz Hall Chapel at 7:30 p.m., November 8. ln the early days meetings were held each Friday night in the chapel with faculty, students and the few missionary speakers that could be obtained as speakers. These meetings were eagerly anticipated, "for at this time we are lifted out of our immediate surroundings and personal interest, and have the privilege of viewing the great need at home and abroadf' as one early publication puts it. In 1956 the organization was changed to the Stu- dent Missionary Fellowship of Fort Wayne Bible College. However, the purpose remained the same-to promote God's work of missions today in the world. Student involvement has always been a key to SM F's effectiveness. Students become involved in Christmas and spring missions. This past summer fif- teen worked overseas hand-in-hand with nationals and missionaries in the building of the Church of Jesus Christ. Students also become involved in Missions Conference, when F.W.B.C. and First Missionary Church join together to feature leading evangelical mis- sions spokesmen, missionaries from around the world, and a display area that is equally imaginative and infor- mative. From this history ofinvolvement, over six hundred students have gone out from the college as missionaries. Men like H. C. Thiessen, S. A. Witmer, Jared Gerig, and Kenneth Geiger were past presidents of Students' Mission Band. Six basketball standouts have known the thrill ofplaying on at least one Venture for Victory tour. Since 1950 students have given well over SlO0,000 towards missions. Numerous missionaries and in- stitutions have benefited from SMF supported projects. During a single week in 1971, students gave more than 52,000 for the relief of refugees from Bangladesh. No other college or university gave as much, few as quickly. Stan Eash gives leadership this year to SMF as it focuses on the purpose, function, cultural peculiarities, and influential instruments of "The Church Around the World." S0 long as students continue to take up the challenge of God's work of redemption by going, giving and praying, SMF will remain an integral part of F.W.B.C., assisting in the great work of discipling. bap- tizing, and teaching all nations. - a aug Delllil :pe-eker Youth Conference ' 74 I I eering Eemmit ee ' differences of gifts A Q the some Spirit differences of ministries -' - the same Lord differences of workings - - the same God. I Cor. 1214- 6 Dear B.C. Student, What's your PQ? Youth Conference, April 4,5, and 6 could be the op- portunity for about 700 young people to find out about their real Potential Quotient. Our featured speaker for this year's Youth Conference will be Rev. Larry DeWitt, pastor of the First Missionary Church in Fort Wayne. He is eagerly anticipating the opportunity for showing Youth Conference's young people how they can discover, develop, demonstrate, donate, and dedicate their potential. This year's POTENTIAL began April, 1973, when the student body elected the Youth Conference leaders: chairman, Brad Grabillg ass. chairman, Jan Nickelg secretary, Becky Stansberyp treasurer, Mark Masterson. To complete the steering committee, the following were chosen: Merv Charles, program, Dan Salsbury, music, Kelly McMichael, art, and Faith Ewert, publicity. The faculty designated Dr. Wes Gerig, Miss Gorton, and Mr. Widder as the advisors. The steering committee has been finding out about their potential as they meet every Monday afternoon. Much time has gone into accumulating ideas, designing posters, gimmicks, and brochures to effectively publicize POTENTIAL. Already letters and publicity packets have been sent to approximately 900 pastors and youth sponsors informing them of the exciting week-end of fun and discovery we are planning for their young people. The steering committee is counting on you for support and help in planning this year's POTENTIAL. We appreciate the interest and enthusiasm demonstrated so far in your encouraging response to the questionnaire distributed in chapel. lf you missed that op- portunity to fill out the questionnaire, talk to one of the members of the steering com- mittee about the capacity in which you would like to use your potential in Youth Conference '74 v Tennis. . .

No more matches to be played, no more practices to attend, no more nets tojump, and no more congratulations to give.

The air is cool and a pungent hint of burning leaves tickles the nostrils. Overhead lagging birds scream for their leaders to slow down. Couples amble between buildings, soaking up the sun. In the library even conscientious students drowse over their books. lnside the gym, however, the only hints of the fall brilliance outside are puddles of light on the gym floor. Drowsiness and ambling are not permitted here. For the eight man basketball team which began practice early in the semester, fall is only a dull blur of drill, followed by drill. followed by more drill. Do they regret missing the beauty of the fall season? Apparently not. For them there is only one season: basketball. ills WHA Promotes Co-ed Recreation if 82Af .L,wv1 Fall may mean pre-season for the men's basketball team, but for WRA fall means volleyball. This year's varsity volleyball team has a five game schedule. Following their opener against Grace, they play Bethel College, Marion College of Marion, St. Francis, and Marion of Indianapolis. Volleyball, like any other sport, requires practice. Tuesday afternoon from 4:00 to 5:00 and Wednesday evenings from 8:30 to l0:00 are set aside for practice. but sometimes when enthusiasm is high the sessions run late and Coach Miller finds it necessary to sneak her girls into the dorm. Wra members will tell you that one ofthe best features of the organization is that it isn't solely for women. WRA sponsors several co-ed fun nights during the year. This year they have already sponsored a swim and ski party and a hayride. Other parties are being planned for second semester. Fall Production Draws Good Review As the curtain rises and the houselights dim. strains of music are heard: harsh, discordant, threatening- recalling the sounds of marching feet and blunt com- mands. A red glow appears on stage revealing a hang- man's noose in silhouette against the white background. The music builds to a climax and suddenly fades. Two men slowly appear upon the stage. One man with his hands tied behind him approaches the noose and stops directly behind it. The executioner places the rope around the condemned man's neck and steps back. In- stantly the lights dim and in the blackness the sound of the trap being sprung is clearly audible. Soon afterward, voices are heard chanting, "The Stations on the Road to Freedom" Chorale. This was the first scene viewed by those who came during Homecoming Week to see the production of THE CUP OF TREMBLING by Elizabeth Berryhill. The play is based on the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German Lutheran minister who during the reign of the Third Reich engaged in various underground political activities, including the plot for the assassination of Hitler. Bonhoeffer was arrested in Berlin on April 5, I9-13, and then two years later on April 9, 1945, was hanged at the Flossenburg Concentration Camp. Many of his letters, papers, and other writings from his im- prisonment are used throughout the play. Rehearsals began September 6, and soon the cast was reading and memorizing their lines, working on where to go on stage and when. Before long they knew what to say and where to stand, but the production was not ready. The properties crew began next, working backstage with props that were authentic for World War II and keeping things in order for each rehearsal. Eventually scene changes were made quickly and quietly and the timing on sound segments was perfected, but still the production was not ready. The costume crew took sizes, coordinated clothing in l94O's style, and then under lights checked for color and contrast. Meanwhile the lighting crew focused lights, adjusted intensity, and learned to react instantly to the proper cue. The production was nearing comple- tion as small crews worked together as a unit. The cast worked hard, not just memorizing lines, but becoming the people they portrayed. Sitting backstage night after night one could feel the conflicts Erich was facing within himselfas a German pacifist un- der Hitler. One experienced with Mama the awful pain when Erich was taken away to prison. With everyone working together, THE CUP OF TREMBLING became more than lines and sound and costumes, This same play was presented for the first time at FWBC in I964. And according to the play's director, Elmer Soden, "This year's reproduction of THE CUP OF TREMBLING was of overall better characterg this could be attributed to additional lighting equipment, a six foot permanent extension on the downstage, and new sound effect." The Bible College family experienc- ed something new and different by attending this year's fall production because no scenery or large properties were utlized and because each member of the cast por- trayed multiple roles. The review in THE NEWS-SENTINEL was sum- marily favorable. The final performance on Saturday evening was sold-out, and the other two nights of the play were also well attended. A number ofpeople show- ed their appreciation for the production by chatting with the cast afterward, for the play was more than mere entertainment. It stirred in the minds of the audience issues to be pondered and acted upon. Cast Ernest Metzger .... .... G ary Fortney Karla Friedhoffer .... ..... J an Hoffman Dr. Paul Friedhoffer ..........

God is say- ing love me, get to know me, obey me. Fenelon in Spiritual Letters puts it this way: "God is, at the same time, the Truth and the Love. We can only know the truth in proportion as we love-when we love it, we un- derstand it well." In an age when days are precious and hours seem far too short, we have become so efficient that we've failed to see just how essential getting to know God better and better really is. Stop and think of the "many people who would never knowingly 'throw away their lives,' yet are willing to let life slip through their hands in little pieces just because they have not decided what are the impor- tant things in life." flieith Millerj Charles Hummel, a Christian author, claims that a Christian's greatest danger in life is "letting the urgent things crowd out the important." What a great temptation this is for most students here at FWBC. How many times do we "just get by" on homework assignments, because we watched TV too long or because we were involved in a bull session that lasted for hours. And then in the very same breath, we say the reason we chose to attend B.C. was because the courses here are geared to produce spiritual growth in the students. We've created a paradox for ourselves. Could this paradox be the result of losing sight of God's perspectives? "Although there were many needs in the lives of those around Him, yet when Christ came to the Cross of Calvary, He could say to His heavenly Father, 'I have finished the work you gave me to do.' Christ operated on the basis of what was important rather than on the urgencies imposed on His life. It is not that our in- volvement in activities is wrongg rather it is that our allowing our involvement to interfere with or take priori- ty over our relationship with God is wrong. One of the ways Satan has deceived well-meaning Christians is to convince them that God is primarily con- cerned that we are working, producing, and ac- complishing. Most of us get so wrapped up in the "doing" aspect of the Christian life that we sadly neglect the "being" If we could only step off a treadmill of ac- tivity long enough to evaluate our lives in light of what God considers important, we might be shocked with our conclusions! How To Get Where You're Going God says, "Be still and know that I am God." fPs. 461105 But to a healthy college student, "being still" before God sounds like Dullsville personified. It is much easier to study about God, or to witness for God, or to give to God than it is to stop the activity long enough to learn to know God Himself. God also says, "you shall find me when you search for me with all your heart." fDeut. 41293 But for most of us by the time we get done with all ofthe urgent activities which make up our days, therejust isn't enough time to really search for God. Our time with Him is either forfeited altogether or at best, hurried. What it really boils down to is that we are so busy getting educated to serve God that we cannot be bothered with building a relationship with God. The situation is rather like the story of the husband who loved his wife so much that he couldn't do enough for her. He worked twojobs in order to get enough money to buy her expensive clothes, a love- ly home and all the trinkets his loving heart could dream up. The tragedy is that his wife divorced him because she was lonelyl She did not want just the evidences of his love. i. e. his giftsg she simply wanted him. Our top priority in life is not being on 59 committees so people will think we are really where it's at spiritually but simply to get to know God better and better. This is exactly what lI Peter l:5-8 tells us to do. "You need more than faith: you must also work hard to be good, and even that is not enough. For then you must learn to know God better and discover what he wants you to do. Next, learn to put aside your own desires so that you will become patient and godly, gladly letting God have his way with you. This will make possible the next step, which is for you to enjoy other people and to like them, and finally you will grow to love them deeply. The more you go on in this way, the more you will grow strong spiritually and become fruitful and useful to our Lord Jesus Christ." As we concentrate our efforts on building a relationship of love and confidence in our Lord, the result will be obedient, productive lives. And when we are finished with our Bible College training, we will have much more than knowledge and skills to offer the world-we will present to them our own best Friend, the Lord Jesus Christ. tall"- Q-in ,A wav' NW: 'Nh-J Dr. Timothy M.

'tl W Taking A Look At urselves by Bill wiiiis The administration is studying? The faculty is studying! They are doing a self study in preparation for the coming of an examining team sent by the American Association of Bible Colleges by whom we are accredited. Every ten years our school is reevaluated by the AABC and they rely heavily on our own self-study evaluation. The first Bible College in the United States was founded in 1882. Today there are nearly 200 Bible Colleges with over 30,000 students enrolled. The AABC yy as established in l947 for improvement of the Biblical and church vocational programs provided by these schools. All Bible colleges are not members as membership is voluntary and the standards are high. What will the examining team look for? According to Dr. Robert Hughes, chairman of the self study. they will want to see if we are doing in the best way possible what we say we are doing. Consequently, they will be looking into every part of our school program and organization from cooks to Christian Education, annuals to alumni, the Board to the basement, Student Services to Student Association. They will be looking for both our strengths and weaknesses. Who is actually doing the self study? Every staff member of Fort Wayne Bible College will be involved along with other key persons. Every department will analyze its own area of responsibilities and produce a written report. The reports are compiled, edited into one large volume, and copies are sent to the AABC for their study and pre-evaluation. Pl' l Dr. Robert Hughes. chairman of the self study, brings helpful experience to his position. Being Chairman of the Division of General Studies and a member of the Committee on Administration, he knows FW BC well. He has also participated in a self study at Kansas City Bible College, where he served as acting dean. Q MW W When will all this take place? Actually, committees were formed during the faculty retreat held last fall. The selfstudy is well under way and is to be completed during the 1973-74 school year. The examining team will be here early in l975. How will this affect the students? Will they be aware all this is going on? Again, according to Dr. Hughes, stu- dent leaders will certainly be aware of the self study for they will also be involved. Every student organization will be submitting a report crystalizing its goals and objectives and saying how well it feels it is meeting student needs. There are also plans for a teacher evaluation similar to the one students participated in two years ago. Asked how Fort Wayne Bible College ranks with the other schools in the AABC, Dr. Hughes remarked that "among Bible colleges in the United States, FWBC is considered one ofthe tops." He recounted that from our school have come some ofthe leading educators in the Bi- ble college movement: Dr. S. A. Witmer was Executive Director of the AABCQ Dr. Jared F. Gerig was President of the AABC3 Drs. Edward and Francis Simpson and our president, Dr. Timothy Warner, are presently on the Research Commissiong Dr. Forest Weddle is on the Com- mittee on Bible Testingg and Dr. Wesley Gerig is presi- dent of the AABC Delta Epsilon Chi Honor Society. A self study well done is a difficult and time- consuming project. lt is difficult to honestly analyze one's own strengths and weaknesses. As Dr. Hughes put it, "lt is painful, but it is stimulating." Our administration deserves our respect for their willingness to do the dif- ficult in order to do theirjob more efficiently and to serve us better. Above: Miss Weddle attends to business as usual in her cold office on Witmer's north side. "BRR! My radiator's not working!" "lf you're headed for W-l0, leave your coat on!" "Am l glad l have an electric blanket!" Do these lines sound familiar? Did the lowered ther- mostats get to your bones too? The energy crisis is not that the world is running out of resources, but that the demand for fuels is higher, thus taking the sources that are available. This problem that is affecting the entire world is also affecting our college. Many of us have felt the changes in the lowering of the thermostats. According to Ed Reynolds, of the Physical Plant Department, the thermostats are set at 68 degrees in hallways and classrooms, 65 degrees in rest rooms and 70 degrees in the dorms. During vacation period, and on weekends for Witmer Hall, the ther- mostats will be turned down or nearly off. The major problem the plant department will be confronted with will be controlling the heat. The heating systems are designed to hold the temperature at 72 degrees. In the Financial Department, the new cost for fuel oil will be the greatest concern. Since September 1973, the cost has almost doubled from 174: per gallon to 3l.4c per Is It arm Yet? The Energy Crisis At FWBC by Violet Miyasato gallon. Revision of the '73-74 budget depends on the severity of the effects of the crisis. The college hopes to avoid raising tuition costs to cover the budget. Some means to avoid expenses under consideration are lj using only certain classrooms for classes and not heating the rooms that aren't used, and 21 taking out every other light wherever possible. Besides heating and financial problems, transporta- tion is another concern. The Christian Service Depart- ment might have to cancel some singing tours, depending on the issue of rationing gas. Dick Baxter said that steps most likely to be taken would concern limiting the dis- tance rather than the frequency of the tours. Commuting students are also concerned about traveling. Eldon Krider, who makes a 140 mile round trip to attend classes, plans to enroll in correspondence courses during the spring semester. Others who live closer, have planned their schedules so that once they're here, they have consecutive classes until they go home. The Vine asked Dr. Weddle if the energy crisis was related to any prophecy concerning the end times. He said that this is one of Satan's ways to bring confusion into the world. "Satan is creating this situation, which will, of course, culminate in the need for the Anti-Christ to straighten it out." He pointed out "it's leading to the Anti-Christ and Armageddon," using Zech. 14.2 and the fact that the energy crisis concerns the whole world. In a statement to The Vine, Dr. Warner asked that we "demonstrate a Christian attitude to this problem as good citizens and attempt to cooperate as fully as possible." The Crisis is with us and will be for some time. There are things we can't do, and things we shouldn't do as our part of the solution. Let's be Christ-like and "obey the government, for God is the one who has put it there" fRom. 1321, Living Biblej.

It is certainly not that we take a blindfold leap into the darkness and resolve to believe what we strongly suspect is incredible. Nor is it because the universal church consistently taught this for the first 18 centuries of its life tthough it did, and this long tradition is not to be lightly set asidel. Nor is it because of God's Word authenticates itsell to us as we read it today-by the majesty of its themes. by the unity of its message, and by the power of its influence. No. The overriding reason for accepting the devine inspira- tion and authority of Scripture is plain loyalty to Jesus. . . "The central issue relates, therefore, not to the authority of the Bible, but to the authority of Christ. . . To rej at the authority of either the Old Testament or the New Testament is to reject the authority of Christ. lt is supremely because we are determined to submit to the authority of Jesus Christ as Lord that we submit to the authority of Scripture." John R. W. Stott "When people tell me my Christian hope is un- realistic, I tell them the trouble is not with my hope but with their reality. Their reality is too small. They are so petrified by the present that they forget the past and the future. They are so busy looking at the world that they never look up to see God. Of course, in that kind of world there is no hope. But one of the most important lessons in the whole Bi- ble is that hope . . . is tied to a person, Jesus Christ . . , However the world may end, it ends with Christ's victory for man, and not with man's an- nihilation of man. lt ends with hope, and that is not an end." Samuel Moffett X :Qi 7 "Missionaries . . . looked on other cultures as aberrations and their own as the norm. A factor which contributed to this is the fact that many Americans refer to their country as a "Christian nation" and the Third World as "heathen coun- tries." The error in this kind of thinking is self- evident. . . "One cannot witness to people outside their own cultural context. The very nature of the Gospel does not lend itself to this kind of narrowness because the Gospel has to do with all aspects oflife. "Because a lack of appreciation of foreign cultures comes from one's home background, a necessary qualification for missionary work is, therefore, a love and appreciation of one's own culture demonstrated by involvement in it. A Chris- tian who has a lively interest in history, economics, politics, music, art, and literature will appreciate the same things in other cultures . . . "I have difficulty believing the sincerity of a man who has no concern at all for the Afro- Americans, Chicanos, Indians, and Chinese here in America but who will cross oceans to love these same people in other parts of the world. The English say, 'Charity begins at homef " Pius Wakatama "What is the place of women in world mis- sions? Jesus said, "You are my witnesses. You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world." And there have been countless thousands who, without reference to where they came from or what they knew or who they were, have believed Jesus meant what He said and have followed. "Today, strident female voices are raised to re- mind us, shrilly and aa' nauseum, that women are equal with men. But such a question has never even arisen in connection with the history of Christian missions. ln fact, for many years, far from being ex- cluded, women constituted the majority among foreign missionaires . . . "And it is the Lord of the Universe who calls you-you women, you men-and offers you today a place in His program. Your education or lack of it, your tastes and prejudices and fears and am- bitions, your age or sex or color or height or marital status or income bracket are all things which may be offered to God, after you've presented your bodies as a living sacrifice. And God knows exactly what to do with them." Elisabeth Howard Elliot Leitch Metamorphosis: An Interior Monologue THURSDAY, DECEMBER 27, 2:00 P.M. Good grief? What am I doing here? Lord. you know I hate crowds. With these l5,000 people I feel like I'm go- ing to be climbing the walls any minute now. This registration line is absolutely ridiculous: I've already stood in line for two hours. I must have been crazy to let those SMF people talk me into coming here. I'm not even interested in missions as a future. All I wanted to do was find out what's happening in the world today. I'm not sure it's worth all this. Theres nothing I can do about it now, so I might as well make the most of it. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 27, 10:00 P.M. John W. Alexander sure hit me right between the eyes in his evening presentation. "The question," he said, "is notjust 'Why are we here at Urbana'?' but 'Why am I here?' " I wanted to see a lot of my friends from other schools whom I may never see again. I wanted to hear John Stott in person. I wanted to find out what's going on in the world--especially in China. I don't know anything about missions, but I suppose it wouldn't hurt to be familiar with the various mission boards at least. Now I can see why Marcia would want to come: she's a missions major. She could talk to all these mission boards. learn their policies and what type of postgraduate training they recommend. And as far as being able to talk with missionaries first hand, they're all over the place! This computerized lntercristo form really is in- teresting. Feed into a computer all your data and find what area of the world and through which mission boards you could serve. It makes you feel kind of needed and useful. There are so many specialized to fill, too. One girl had a degree in diatetics and there were a couple places where she could serve. Tomorrow afternoon instead of going to the open seminars with all the various speakers, I think l'll go to the Armory and see ifI can locate all the mission boards on my lntercristo sheet. Sure hope I can find them all among the 140 booths set up in here. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 28, 9:l5 A.M. Boy. that Bible study this morning wasn't half bad. Those kids in the group sure did know a lot about the Bi- ble for not going to a Bible college. I think some of them even knew as much as I did. Guess that doesn't say a whole lot for me.

These last couple of days ofthe convention have my head swimming. These speakers have said some things that I never even thought about. Elisabeth Elliott Leicht said not to let the image of missions hold you back. Pius Wakatama sure did have a lot ofgood things to say. Too bad I missed him at Missions Conference at BC. But I'll bet a lot of people were surprised when he said that love and appreciation of one's own culture brings ability for a person to appreciate another culture. He said that many think of evangelism as the positive and social concern as the negative. Yet to have light, both the positive and negative are required. TUESDAY, JANUARY I, 8:00 A.M. I can't believe that Urbana '73 is over already. I was just getting used to having 15,000 people around, instead of the 500 at BC. There were a lot of sharp kids here. It is encouraging to see that there are so many Christian guys here. It makes you think again about the possibility of missions for you. So, I've been to Urbana '73. What is there to do now after all the excitement has died down? Weatherspoon gave a whole list of things I could do, like help my church: go with summer missions: move to a different geographical location, like from rural to urban, to see how the rest of America livesg cut out clippings of specific current events to keep informed and to be able to pray more intelligently: write to missionaries: find out about mission boards: read books. Those are things I can do now. I guess the only way to see the fulfillment of the theme of the convention, "Jesus Christ: Lord of the Universe, Hope of the World," is to first allow Jesus Christ to become "Lord of my life." It has to begin with me. by Sue Boyer The above is a hypothetical monologue.

Building Witmer Hall, the Bible College's million- dollar administration-classroom facility, put Fort Wayne Bible College into debt amounting to approximately 1.6 million dollars. Four years have passed and the college has not yet been able to reduce the 1.6 million dollar debt. Each week the college pays S2000 in interest on the various loans it took out to build Witmer Hall. That SI00,000 the college pays out in interest alone is ten per- cent ofthe total college budget. Ifthere were a possibility of raising 5500.000 or even 550,000 to apply toward the reduction of the Witmer Hall debt. the college could pay some of the loans in full and free funds for other projects. These facts are all background for the story which began one warm Saturday night in September of I973, when a pastor approached Student Association Presi- dent, Dennis Barta, with a project idea. "Why," asked the pastor, "should the student body content itself with raising two to three thousand dollars for decorating the Student Union or some other project? Why couldn't the student body covenant with God to raise S300,000 or even S500,000 to help erase the debt on Witmer Hall?" The seemingly impossible challenge which the pastor was presenting was no spur-of-the-moment idea. This man had held a vision for over two years, prayed over it, and even cried over it. He could see potential being allowed to remain undeveloped simply because the Bible College had to pay our Sl00,000 each year as interest in- stead of being able to invest that money in expanding facilities, developing better curricula, raising staff salaries, giving additional financial aid to students. The immediate question was how a student body of 500 could raise S500,000 when many students had dif- liculty in even paying off their school bills. The means would not be easy, but it was possible. The plan was simple. Each student would personally ii Debt Reduction j write at least twenty letters to family members, friends, government officials, or anyone else whose name came into his mind. In these letters students would request a tax-deductible gift of S100 for the Witmer Hall debt li- quidation project. In addition to writing, students would volunteer to work where possible. And above all, they would pray, trusting God to supply funds. After weeks of prayer, preparation, and frustration, the work began. Some students chose not to participate, but hundreds of letters did go out. A few students wrote thirty, forty, or even fifty letters. The faculty and administration, pleased observers of the entirely student-conducted project, cancelled morning classes for one day so students could write letters without the pressures of classes and homework. Weeks after "letter writing day" Student Association was getting questions from students who wanted to know if they could still write some letters. And so, the campaign con- Ground Breaking 1969 Far left: Doug Barcalow, president of the Student Association in 1970, puts in the symbolic spade to break the ground where Witmer hall now stands.

Responses came from all over the United States, from believers and non-believers, from Sunday School classes, churches, students, businesses, corporations. One contributor commented "Your approach is just unique and different enough to cause me to want to contribute to your project. Good luck on your goal!" Another wrote, "I certainly congratulate you and the rest of the students for your dedication and for the belief you have in your school." As some students worked and prayed together in this effort to express their appreciation to the college for its influence in their lives, a greater sense of unity developed among them. Also the project has brought about an in- crease in these students' faith as they see the message of Matthew 19:26 demonstrated: "With man this is impossi- ble, but with God all things are possible."

Miss Joy Gerig recalls some girlfriends being campused and losing all social privileges for two weeks: they wore blue jeans to South Cam- pus to play softball. But the following fall semester brought blue jeans- privileges for girls. Mr. Birkey remembers the years that "visiting between sexes in the dining hall was not permitted" and segregated mealtimes were part of life at B.C. Well times have changed and rules have changed. But has the depart- ment that disciplines changed? Yes it has. The staff has worked hard to change the emphasis of the department. The change in philosophy emphasizes the positive and uses a redemptive approach to discipline. Any disciplinary action strives to be corrective and helpful, not merely punitive. Miss Gerig, from her vantage point outside the depart- ment, says "One of Student Services major goals is to aid our students to develop their total person . . . who they are, what their abilities are, and how to relate to people . . . goals that coincide completely with Christ's command that we are to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul, body, and spirit, and our neighbor as ourself. I think this is a very positive aspect of Student Ser- vices that's making a beautiful con- tribution to our student body." At one time this department was called Office of the Dean of Students. But with the change in emphasis has come also a change in name. The heart of Student Services is service to the students as the name suggests. ln the words of Max Wanner, "lt is a branch on the administrative level, assigned the task of relating to the students and trying to serve them and meet their needs." Student Services along with a host of other things plans Orientation Week, works on the activities schedule, insurance and medical benefits, and will even help students find a good dentist. Student Services is a department of people who care. Each person "up there on third floor" plays a vital part in helping students. From director to secretary, all are encouraged to be themselves and share opinions, joys, and sorrows. They are genuine peo- ple, concerned about the students and really seeking to be ofservice to them. In the words of Dr. Gene Hovee, director, "this is the department that represents students to the faculty." lt tries to understand the students' point of view.

CS Department Reports Christian Service teams traveled about 6000 miles in the first semester, according to a report released by CS Director Joy Gerig. The teams participated in 76 different sqvices and programs as they shared their faith in music and testimonies. Eighty-nine churches and organizations are cooperating with the CS program.

Paul also warns that "when they measure themselves by one another. . .they are without understanding." tll Cor. l0:l2 RSVJ The problem begins with the deceitfulness of the human heart. Integrity begins when I acknowledge that l have the power of self-deception and begin to honestly test my life by God's truth. Christian integrity means not taking fbearingj the Lord's name in vain fin an empty, meaningless wayl. My "yes" to Christ should be a complete "yes," not just "yes" for salvation with no "yes" for His Lordship. My "no" to the world should be a complete "no," not "no" to some of the obvious, big sins but with latitude for some things l'd at least like to try. Socrates counselled that we should not fear death, we should fear unrighteousness. Jesus warned, "Do not fear those who can kill the body but cannot kill the soulg rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell." QMatt. l0:28j There are times when I would be wrong in insisting on my rights, but I am never wrong when I do what is right even though those all around me do wrong or even when doing wrong would save my life. Integrity is living by what is right regardless of the spectators or the consequences. Notes on Prejudice: Mr. Beals One source of prejudice is authoritarianism-taking the word of a respected source rather than finding out for ourselves. Another is our susceptibility to propaganda, especially in today's multi-media age. We are also creatures of impulse and habit. and although we are often self-complementary of the rationality of our judgments, they are most often made on the visceral level. As Christians, we would concur that the origin of all pre- judice is in the fallen nature of man. We can best deal with prejudice by confessing as honestly as possible that we have prejudices. We have come by them largely unaware. but they are part of our makeup. One of my favorite philosophers lives in Georgia. His abode is the Okefenokee Swamp, and he is an ever-lovin'-blue-eyed 'possum that answers to the name Pogo. He once profoundly commented to a group of his peers, "we have met the enemy, and he is us." Would we not admit that our greatest problem with pre- judice is us? I realize that the grammar is wrong, but I think the emphasis is correct. Most of all current and historical prejudices can be found in the Scripture. There was racial prejudice: Jews and Samaritans. There was geographical prejudice: Jesus was from Nazareth. There was labeling: the Paul party and the Apollos party at Corinth. Even in the early church there were problems between the Jewish and Gen- tile converts to Christianity. What is the answer? We can begin by accepting others, and repenting of a non-accepting attitude. After all, ifGod can accept us, surely we can accept others. The Spirit ofCuod cannot work effectively ifwe build barriers. We are called to love. Serve The Lord ith Gladness Music , . . one cannot imagine life without it. Music provides a medium for offering praise to God and presenting testimony of His faithfulness. As students' voices are raised in song. fears and difficulties become small and hearts are united in the faith. Music reaches into the lives of sinner and saint to present Christ to all. .Ll Right above: COLLEGJANS l-ront row Stan Kesler, Dewey Johnson.

When we began to work on the third issue of The Vine, we knew that it wouldn't come out until the fall. Thus we did a little preplanning and decided that several pages of this issue should take closer look" at some things that especially freshmen would appreciate know- ing. However, we do hope that they will be helpful not only to freshmen, but also to upperclassmen. I think that it is important that you know why two issues are coming out this fall. Actually, the second issue should have come out before you left campus last spring. However, because of a lack of help in working on The Vine, the deadline could not be met and it didn't get to the publisher on time. As a result, the publishers couldn't get the book back before school was out. I was faced with the same kind of problem in my issue. We had deadlines to meet, but very few people were willing to feel the responsibility of meeting those deadlines and arrange their schedules to give 7he Vine time. lfjust a few people would be willing to help an hour a week, the load and responsibilities would be much easier for everybody. However, in spite of the frustrations I think that working on The Vine has been a very profitable and worthwhile experience for me. But if more people would have willingly been involved in working on The lfine, deadlines could have been met, and all the students. publishers, and editors would have been happier. But we are going to make it, and I am grateful to the people who Fort Wayne Bible College t e vol. 2 No, 3 1973-74 FEATURES I ll ' 1 Ill A iq I ' "Xi Q I A Closer Look: I3 Freshmen write about life at BC The Bible Department .................

They write from first- hand experience on what to do about problems they had. They give answers to questions that came up. A couple of things, for example. are "how to find a church" and "how to overcome homesicknessf' Even though these pages were designed with freshmen in mind. we hope that upperclassmen will read them too. l think that an article that may be especially helpful to everyone is the one on scheduling time. l hope that as you take a closer look at the events of the past semester you will be able to appreciate the im- portance of the people here on campus and the impor- tance of the activities. .. Roommates by Patsy Renee Jones O As prospective freshmen wait for the fall semester to begin. they usually begin formulating a picture of their future roommate. if they don't already know who their roommate is. Boys may picture a pudgy kid stuffing his face with Pringles as he hangs his picture of Mom on the wall, while girls picture a gorgeous coed hanging her well- assorted wardrobe in the closet. But no matter how well he imagines him, there are always unexpected problems. So what can a freshman expect from his roommate? "Don't expect too much. That way you won't be dis- appointed," Peggy Beck jokes. However, sophomore John Cornell's deliberate response. "Don't expect more of him than you can give," is probably a more practical bit of advice. Most upperclassmen state that they have learned to compromise and give in a little more than they necessarily want. Since some freshmen come to BC to room with a friend, they usually expect roommate conditions to be ideal. But as Paulette Smith discovered, just because roommates know each other does not mean they will not have disagreements. "We expected to get along without trying." she murmered as she thought back to the begin- ning of fall semester and the problems she and her room- mate had about the appearance of their room. "Start from the beginning and have a prayer time," urges Dan Salsburey. This is a must to help students get acquainted spiritually. Since it is assumed that students come here Christians, they surely expect spiritual sup- port from their roommates. Students can also expect their roommate to be lonely at times, so plan to spend time sharing with them. However. Mark Masterson warns. "Don't be possessive of the other person's time," but just be a concerned friend. "lf you're a quiet person you have to learn to be open or your roommate will become suspicious," is a principle Roxanne Ogden discovered. Roxanne. one of the lucky few who had two roommates both semesters, found that her roommates expected her to communicate regularly with them. Even though she reported trivial details, they were kept in tune with the "up-to-date- Roxanne." Some of the specilic problems that students en- counter involve individual sleeping hours. studying hours. and gab sessions. One ofthem may be tired, wan- ting the lights offwith the room quiet, while the other may feel an extra burst ofenergy, wanting to talk or listen to the radio. Then there is the problem with borrowing the room- mate's belongings. Some do not have this problem at all. while others boil inside when they find some personal item missing or their favorite piece ofclothing which they planned to wear that day in a mess. To prevent possible problems, set up a policy about borrowing right at the start of the semester. But living with a roommate is not just problems. "Relax and enjoy each other," Becky Stansbery states breezily. There are two basic principles which can help freshmen face the roommate situation, given by Miss Joy Gerig: "First, have an awareness ofyourselfand who you are and second, determine to respond to others as God would have you respond." lf students were to consider these two principles, they would not only discover what to expect from their roommates, but what their room- mates expect from them.

Yet as one looks around campus he can observe many students participating in this horrible activity and seeming to enjoy it. But what can they find so enjoyable about working? One of the main reasons students like working on campus is the money they receive. Over l75 students at BC received S l .80 or 52.00 an hour by being employed on campus this year. July l the minimum pay will be 52.00 even for beginning workers at a particular job. With a school bill to pay and toothpaste and deodorant constant- ly being used up, money earned from campus employ- ment can come in very handy. Another benefit of working on campus is the simple work experience. While most of the jobs are in the cafeteria or in cleaning, other jobs are available such as switchboard, mailroom, secretarial, and technical positions. Working at a job a student may well acquire knowledge and skills which he may be able to use in the future. Being employed on campus also encourages a stu- dent to get to know other students better, According to Teri Duckworth who works in the cafeteria, "One good thing about working in the cafeteria is that you get to meet a lot of people you otherwise couldn't meet." Student employment is under the direction of the college business manager, Donald Guhse. Students wishing to work on campus fill out forms obtained from Mrs. Hurt-Sellers and return them to her in her office on Witmer first floor. The forms then go to the business of- fice, then to Student Services for clearance, and then go back to Mr. Guhse for final approval. The next time you see a student with a mop in hand or one skillfully placing a scoop of mashed potatoes on your plate, remember that work is something BC students can and do enjoy. I E T Scheduling Time HI by Lori Papazian and Flossie Johnson Y F-lg is. "I like to goof-off too much," is how one student described her major problem in scheduling time during her freshman year. "Discipline is my problem," observed another fellow. "I don't discipline myself far enough in advance to do what needs to be done." Scheduling time, though it is one of the most impor- tant factors of college success, presents a major problem to most college students. Problems range from the dif- ficulty ofthe student who loves to goofoff to the plight of the student who moans, "I get so involved in my work, I don't take enough time for people," and includes a broad spectrum in between. One girl who found herself unable to budget her time concluded that she needed to establish priorities in her life, but didn't know where to begin. One good place to begin managing your time wisely is in the office of Dick Baxter, Assistant Director of Christian Service. Dick has helped numerous BC students work out a time schedule tailored to their personal needs. "No matter what the problem is, there is one basic solution," said Dick. That solution is three-fold: tlj Know what must be done, Q25 Plan time to do it, Q35 Do it. "The solution to time problems is not 'I need more time,' but 'How do I manage the time I have'?"' Dick points out that a person must first discipline himselfto do the most important things first. "We enjoy doing that which is important to us, but sometimes we have to ask ourselves, 'What are my priorities'?"' Sometimes we must shift our priorities, Dick stresses, in order to do what is really important. Dick worked with one freshman in particular who "first semester was completely disorganized." Second semester Dick showed the fellow how to set up a schedule, enabling him to keep ahead of his work all semester. The victory came when "his term paper for In- tro to C.E. was completed and handed in one week before it was due." Different students budget their time in various ways. Rosita Steiner says. "When I get up, I think of all I have to do and put it in a mental order." May Hays prefers to make a list of her projects in order of importance and simply work her way through it. At any rate, the vital issue in a successful schedule is determining priorities. In making that determination it is important to remember Dick Baxter's warning, "One of the greatest dangers in life is letting the urgent things crowd out the important." In the actual planning ofa schedule, Annette Friesen suggested marking off the inflexible items first. The next logical step is to fill in the other areas according to priorities. There are several areas that many students at the Bi- ble College tend to pass over. Many students find that their major problem-and one which affects every area of their lives-is lack of sleep. Students who fail to budget their time wisely during the day are forced to spend their sleeping-hours studying. Just as adequate rest is essential for the body to function properly, good reading material is necessary for the mind to be alert. The mind gets plenty of practice with textbooks and collateral reading, but it needs a break. College students should work into their schedule time to read the news, pleasure books, and books about fields unfamiliar to them. This variety not only makes one more able to relate to people with different interests, but it makes one's scheduling more in- teresting. If a student is able to get his rest and do his reading, he may still find he has the age-old problem of procrastination. This problem mlay be combatted with careful planning. As soon as a project is assigned, a stu- dent should divide it into smaller segments. This will eliminate the need for cramming. He should set deadlines for himself. While working on that subject, he would con- centrate on that job until he has accomplished what he planned for that session. Study time is important. but relaxing must not be neglected either. Rosita Steiner affirms that "school is notjust learning from books but from people." Relaxing with other people can be an enriching experience. One should make time for this in his schedule. but not let these times determine that schedule. When all these points are considered. a workable. unique schedule can be drawn up by each student to help him become more effective without worry or anxiety. Time. yes, there is twenty-fours hours of it every day. lf you need help managing it. stop in and see Dick Baxter on third lloor Xtitmer. At the beginning of this new semester remember Dick's simple advice: "Plan ahead. set long range goals. and you can avoid the last minute rush." Touring Groups by Janette Granger - with Debbie Gerig, ti Dawn Hanni. Stan Kesler. and Jerry Miller E !I Z F 1 ' I S -Zz At the beginning of the school year about 70 students meet in Witmer I0 and carry on a small scale battle using their musical abilities for weapons. By the time this battle called "try-outs" is linished. the weak ones have been exhausted. and the strong ones find they have doubts about winning. The strong ones then go into seclusion. coming out only for classes and meals. and then emerge dramatically at Youth Conference as the Christian Service touring groups. Actually. this is not how it all happens. but it is the misconception many have when they think about the Singing Collegians or any of the other musical groups which represent the college away from campus. The real story is far different. The uninitiated freshman who comes to BC hoping to become a member of the group that he heard at his church or saw perform during Youth Conference. will find himselfcompeting with about 70 others with exactly the same hopes. Half of the hopefuls will be eliminated and the other 35 placed in groups on the basis of their musical abilities, versatility, personality, and the blend of voices. The groups selected by audition are then ap- proved by the Christian Service Department and Student Services. Sometimes tryouts are funny as well as frustrating. Having heard that there was to be a brass ensemble this year. one unsuspecting freshman Jerry Miller. went to try out for a position as tuba player and got a big surprise. At the first session. he found out that a tuba player wasn't needed because there was not going to be any brass ensemble. Too embarrassed to walk out in front ofthe 70 others waiting to try out. .lerry stayed and tried out for a vocal part. Much to his surprise. the bass-singing freshman found himself selected to sing tenor with the Singing Collegians. The person who accepts a position in a touring group is committing himself for the entire year. Once out- fits are bought. parts learned. and repertoire refined, the team becomes a unit. An entire-year commitment is necessary because of the impracticality and impossibility of replacing a group member. Responsibility to the group has to take precedence over personal affairs. A student cannot plan any weekend activities without a careful check with the Christian Service department, for group members have no substitutes to fill-in for them. The two or three weeks after groups are selected. an intense effort is made to learn enough songs to be able to present a full concert. Regular practice hours for each group are set up on a weekly basis with a minimum of four hours practice a week required of the whole group. In addition. time is spent outside of scheduled practices memorizing and polishing individual parts. The four touring groups which represented the college this year travelled two to four weekends a month. Being away from campus so much means difficulty in get- ting homework done. According to Collegians member Stan Kesler. in most instances weekend assignments are given far enough in advance for the team members to work ahead in their homework. Yet sometimes there is a pinch when a teacher waits until Friday to give an assign- ment due on Monday. Dawn Hanni. Prism's alto. reported that Prism travelled throughout the Tri-State area two to three weekends each month. Some of the engagements were Sunday only. others were Saturday evening and Sunday. At the times when the group was out overnight, they stayed with people from the church that they were singing in. When the kids were out but not singing or visiting with people, they usually studied. got to know each other a little better, or tried to catch a little sleep. "When a group goes out on a weekend, they may find themselves facing some real adjustments." Janette Granger reports. "They must be outgoing, and be wear- ing a smile. There are also physical adjustments that the groups sometimes need to make, such as playing a flat piano in a different key to be in tune with the singers, sleeping on the springs of a bed with only a sheet, or get- ting dressed in the dark because there were no curtains on the windows." There was never any boredom when mealtime came while the Collegians were out fora weekend. Jerry Miller "never knew what to expect. a huge smorgasbord at a quaint little country inn or sloppy joes in the church basement. One thing was certaing there would be at least one potluck dinner during the weekend, and three of them in a weekend were not uncommon." When you find out what a serious, time-consuming commitment a touring group member makes, you may wonder why anybody wants to try out in the first place. And yet people do try out-and many return a second and third year to be in a group. The Vine asked some freshmen who served on musical teams this year, just what makes it all worth-while. --Jerry Miller responded saying that being in Sing- ing Collegians made him "feel a part of the college" and allowed him to see people come to know Jesus Christ. -Debbie Gerig was thrilled just discovering the im- plications of her group's name: Prism. "A prism is actual- ly nothing but a piece of glass until a master craftsman takes it and molds it until the shape is perfected, and until he is satisfied. The implication is there: we are God's han- diworkf' -Prism's bass, Tim Stephenson, told The Vine that the thing which made being in a touring group important to him was the personal relationships established within the group. "I got to know five other people on a deep level," he said. "And more important, l got to love them and know they love me." The groups represented by these students are a very important part of the college's outreach. Though much more is involved in participation in a group than the non- member can appreciate, understand, or comprehend, one thing is clear: Their ministries include a lot more than just a song or two at Youth Conference. E l Class Officers ICJ by Ann Steury . , livery year as nominations go up for class officers, someone will inevitably back down because he does not know what is expected of him. Admittedly, there are not many specifications as to what an officer does or does not do. The previous experiences of officers and successful programs of the past provide some helpful guidelines to go by. And knowing how to conduct formal business meetings is a fine accomplishment. But all the tradition and decorum in the world cannot make up for two essen- tial qualities of a leader: a sense of responsibility and a spirit for unity. Taking responsibilty not only means organizing food and game committees for a picnic, balancing the budget, or typing up the minutes for a meeting, but it means being able to serve people. Picking up trash after a full day of sports and eating doesn't sound very exciting, does it? Taking responsibility is also a way ofshowing people you care about them. ln a sense. you say, Hlfsomething goes wrong, l'm willing to take the blame." Leadership goes beyond this however. When a bond is created between an officer and one of the class members, the task for both is made easier-and a lot more fun. A leader who wants unity within the class and among the officers will find out what their goals and in- terests are. He will strive to bring the class members together in meaningful activities involving all aspects of life, from social to spiritual. Whatever ideas you have brought about college in- volvement, remember that life is a social interaction with others. We are constantly studying. sharing, laughing, praying with each other, and sometimes hurting each other. To really get to know people, is to get involved. lf you get the opportunity to be a leader, do it as a responsi- ble, caring person. Consider it an opportunity to serve the Lord. - 'E Finding A Church Til by John Jones l Finding a clmrvli in Fort Wayne is no problem, but finding the church can be a different matter. Fort Wayne has a total of 339 churches, which grants this city the dis- tinctive sobriquet "The City of Churches." There is one church for every 544 persons in Fort Wayne. ln finding a church home, a major consideration for many BC students is where they have their Christian Ser- vice assignments. lf a student teaches a Sunday School class at First Missionary Church, he will most probably attend their church services. Even ifyou don't have a CS assignment, the Christian Service Department is an ex- cellent place to inquire about where to fellowship. Dick Baxter commented that because the CS department has placed students in eighty-nine different churches and organizations, they know what the different churches have to offer. The reasons for choosing a particular church vary widely. almost to the point where there are as many different opinions of the right church as there are churches. One couple. John Jones and Sheri Belcher. visited churches for three months before becoming a part of a body of believers worshiping together. Their advice was to settle down as soon as possible because of the problems of being new every single Sunday: they had to go through the route of standing up to be introduced. and then not returning to that church. This couple finally settled. and entered into the ministry available at their church The denomination of home church often has a great deal of inlTuence in the decision as to a church. This. however. is not always the case. as evidenced by one stu- dent. Jeff Woerner. When .Ieff lirst arrived in Port Wayne. he looked in the telephone book for all the Bap- tist churches in town. But before he visited any of them. he settled at a Christian SL Missionary Alliance church a fevv blocks from his apartment. lirequently' the location of a church around the college becomes an important fact to consider. especially' if walking is the only mode oftransportation available. A few churches swing their buses by the college: among them are Brookside Evangelical Mennonite Church. Fellowship Bible Church. and Fort Vvayne Baptist Tem- ple. Students w ho drive their cars to a particular church often are happy to give another student a ride. A student usually can get to the church he wants. if he will take the time to work out the details. The selection ofa home church aw ay' from home in- volves study and prayer. There is not a perfect church in Fort Wayne or any place else. but the diversity of churches available should allow the searching student to find ilu' rllzlruli for him. E EBI Homesickness 4 by L. Paulette smith T and Linda Flory "l want to go home. l hate this place. Please let me go home." This and comments like this can be heard in dorms all over the United States year alter year. Homesickness is even a big problem at the Bible College. Miss Sue Zeltwanger. Bethany dorm supervisor, said that homesickness was one of the biggest counseling problems she had last fall. This year will probably be no different. Many new freshmen--and many upperclassmen-will have the problem of homesickness. They'll want to see Mom and Dad and brothers and sister whom they sometimes had trouble getting along with at home. They'll miss pets that they hated cleaning up after. They'll cry over the absence ol' best friends. Being homesick is actually not a bad thing. It is a sign ofa happy home life or a close relationship with peo- ple. lt is certainly' nothing to be ashamed of. Usually homesickness is most evident the first couple weeks of school or right after a vacation. especially for those who have never been away from home before. But homesickness can crop up at other times. lt is often rein- forced after students have been home on vacation. on weekends or when someone at home is sick or in trouble. The feeling can be triggered by many different happenings. Homesickness can be particularly bad on a day when you have Hunked a test. fought with your boyfriend or are sick with the lTu. One girl was not homesick at all until she received a letter from home which said. "We miss you so much." For another it was the time she was all packed to go home on a weekend but at the last minute. couldn't. Homesickness is an acceptable emotion for girls and may even be expected of them. but what happens to the guys? According to Max Wanner, resident adviser in Schultz. homesickness is very real there though guys rare- ly admit it. "A guy is not supposed to feel homesick, but l tell them it is nothing to be ashamed of for it speaks well of their home." Here on campus. students sometimes try not to let anyone know that they are homesick. however. to tell someone about it is usually the best solution. And besides. if you think you can hide the fact that you're homesick, forget it. Max described the homesick students as "depressed and withdrawn. They have a dejected look about them, they walk with a slow shuflTe. and the girls usually have red eyes and runny noses." Those who counsel with homesick students need to "show interest in the student and try to get him to admit he is homesick so he will be able to Cope with the problem." ln doing this. Max says. the counselor needs to explain that the homesick student has the Holy Spirit in- side him to comfort him. Freshman Vivian Liechty underscored the necessity of admitting to homesickness."Talk to someone about it. lfyou have to cry. don't hold it in. lfnecessary. call home tcollect. of coursel. and don't get discouraged. College gets better as the year goes on." lfyou get this feeling of homesickness. don't go off alone and pout. Get out and keep busy, talk to someone, jog. play basketball, do anything to get your mind off of. home and your loved ones. Remember as Ed Baird would say, "We love you here at Fort Wayne Bible College." the fifiq. ! nz F' 'IQ' A Statement gag. by Jan Hoffman G Editor of the next issue I . "Magazines are more permanent than broadcasting. more thorough and attracting than newspapers. and more current than books." Our campus magazine is try- ing to capitalize on these advantages. The Vine is com- piled and edited by students. and directed largely to students. The Vine tries to focus on people because people are basically interested in people. There are certain things that nearly everyone is interested in. such as the "mug shots" of students, and articles about Youth Conference. musical groups. and dramatic productions. In this respect. The Vine serves as a historical record by recor- ding articles and pictures about people. events. and cam- pus or non-campus issues which pertain to that year. There are things that students need to know. To keep the student's interest. these necessary items of knowledge are most often presented as they are being applied to the life of a specific person. The Vine serves a number of purposes other than that of simply entertaining its readers. Copies of The Vine, as a public relations tool, are placed in church libraries. public lounges. and distributed by such groups as the Positive Side. The Vine relates important informa- tion about the college and carries the responsibility of creating a true portrait of the college for the public. Another vital and perhaps often overlooked function of The Vine is to help restore a proper sense of perspective to its readers. All members ofthe body ofChrist serve to build up the body. Nevertheless. one of these members may sometimes tend to feel quite insignificant unless someone makes an effort to point out his importance to the whole. Dave Erdel. 1973-74 first issue editor cond issue editor Louella Stansbery. 1973-74 se- A recent example of this was related last May in the commencement address by Dr. Edward Simpson. ln attempting to show the various members ofthe BC family their significance, he told ofa student who came to his of- fice and said. "l've learned more from Ed Reynolds than l have from anybody else here." Dr. Simpson interpreted and emphasized Ed Reynolds importance to us. Similar- ly, The Vine hopes to lead the whole BC family in inter- preting the significance of people to them and to the rest of us. Although our campus cannot sponsor a number ot clubs of specific interest. such as a camera club. an art club. or creative writing club. students with these interests can find an outlet for their talents on The Vine. The Vine needs those people who have these talents and abilities. A person must not get the impression that he needs talent in order to work on The Vine, As in any organiza- tion. there are certain positions on The Vine staff which require special skills. Other jobs. such as stamping pic- tures. and labeling envelopes. require little skill. There are jobs which need to be done regularly and require no specialized skill, including sharpening pencils and emp- tying the wastebaskets. ln obtaining such jobs on The Vine, a student learns the various aspects of a complex business. This knowledge can be used as he assumes responsibilities in a church for producing church bulletins. or in the mission field in assembling a missionary newsletter.

Besides this appreciation for publications, a person can learn leadership abilities. Each staff member is a leader in that he is responsible for a staff under him to see that all of the delegated work is completed properly and by a designated deadline. The Vine is a student publication. lt can only remain a student publication. however. if you, the students, become actively involved by contributing your time andfor talents to this magazine.

SM lf is reaching out to our own student body. keeping them informed about what is happen- ing in the world through missions. Missions Conference held in conjunc- tion with l-'irst Missionary' Church, was the high point of the year and featured such speakers as Dr. Nlariano Di Ciangi. Rey. Dayid Stuart Briscoe. and Pius Wakatama who was also a speaker at the Urbana '73 Convention. Included at each of the services was a missionary speaker. Displays depicted missions in Paul's day. William Carey's day. and our day. These elaborate displays were built largely through volunteer, stu- dent labor. Approximately tw enty-five students attended the Urbana '73 Convention which was held at the University of lllinois. The entire four and a half days of the convention were spent in examining what is happening in missions today, emphasizing the necessity for each person to consider what role he is to play in missions-direct involvement or a supportive role. Throughout the year. various aspects of missions were considered such as the importance of prayer in missions. the need for teachers on the mission held, the place of radio and television in missions. the church in various parts of the world, and even the role FWBC played in the prepara- tion of one BC graduate for the mis- sion field. Two sessions were devoted to informing the students ofhow they can help a missionary now. Students became directly involved in missions through pledged monthly support to two outstanding mis- sionaries. Florence Cavender in Columbia and Dr. Morris Jacobsen in Japan. In the SM le' project for this year students contributed over SL200 toward a van for the Jamaica Theological Seminary. In another sense, the outreach of SM F goes beyond the boundaries of our campus into all parts of the world. Twenty students travelled to Mexico over Christmas vacation with Teen Missions. Inc.. and built a much needed room on a small but growing church there. Another twenty-five went to lflorida over spring break for beach evangelism with Teen Missions. lnc.. and Campus Crusade for Christ. Over the summer twelve students will be scattered throughout the world working in many different capacities and under various mission boards and organizations. l-'or many. these experiences are the exposure to mis- sions which will increase their insight and interest them in the future to maintain important supportive roles here in the States. For others, it provides the confirmation that direct involvement in missions is God's plan for their lives. "Involvement" is not a very pop- ular word in today's societyg but without involvement there would be no Student Missionary Fellowship. by Sue Boyer Direction for SMF was given this year by: Dave Erdel, Treasurerg Sue Boyer, Secretary: Owen Cornelius, Outreach: Bonnie Wilson, Publicity: and Stan Eash, President. Mark Masterson To Study In Jamaica Mark Masterson, a CE and Missions major. plans to spend his junior year at Jamaica Theological Seminary in Kingston. This will give him a chance to spend a whole nine months in a different country and learn about another culture by living in it. He is looking forward to having "a chance to see what it is like to be on a mission field." Mark figures that 28 credit hours will transfer and with a few extra courses when he gets back. he will graduate in the four years planned. Among other courses, he will be taking second year Greek, ll Corinthians. and a field study in missions research directed by Mr. Cartmel. In addition he will have a Christian service assignment and chorus ensemble. tNotice he will not stop singing after his summer ministry with The Positive Side.J This experience can be fitted into his regular degree program and will not even be costing him extra money. Room and board and tuition for a year at the Seminary is 5550. "It's better than a summer missions program," he says: "l won't be get- ting in the way. l'll be joining right in." Are Short Terms Profitable? The history of missions is a history of student involvement. Whether in Germany with Zinzendorf, or in England with the Wesley's and the Cambridge Seven, or in America with Mills, God has repeatedly used students to awaken the Church to its worldwide responsibilities. Today students continue to take an active interest in missions. And the twentieth century affords oppor- tunities for involvement previous generations could not imagine. Modern rapid transportation and affluent society coupled together make it relatively easy for short term missionaries to go overseas. College students now commonly spend from a couple weeks to a year or more in a foreign country. Christian colleges across the United States have en- couraged students to consider "summer missions." Here at I-'WBC the trend has been the same. During the past few years several dozen students have travelled to various parts of the world to help career mis- sionaries. Short terms are expensive Of course all this is very worthwhile. At least, we hope it is, because it certainly is very expensive. Wheaton College became deeply in- volved in summer missions, raising over twenty thousand dollars a year and fully supporting their own summer missionaries. Then Wheaton made a study to evaluate the effec- tiveness-of their program. Most career missionaries surveyed recommended that short-term mis- sionaries continue to be sent but add- ed words of caution. The reasons are summarized below in comments on the impact of the short-term mis- sionary on the national church, on the career missionaries, and on the short-termers themselves. Long-termers evaluate First, it was found that college students who go abroad for a summer or less sometimes have a negative effect on the national church. Often the student has neither command of the national language nor any skill such as nursing, radio programming, etc. His evangelistic efforts are severe- ly hampered and he cannot be of much practical help. Often in these instances the student is given menial tasks. He is put to painting or to housework and his witnessing is limited to distributing tracts and sing- ing a memorized chorus. When a student takes a manualjob usually done by the national, the national, living in a culture where the per capita income is under S200 a year, may think it unjust. His frustra- tion may deepen to bitterness if the rich American also communicates an enthocentric superiority or messianic complex. Second, the Wheaton study found that summer missionaries have a mix- ed effect on career missionaries. Sometimes they are an inconvenience, for they generally are unable to travel about alone. Occasionally they are quite thoughtless and become an add- ed burden to the already pressured missionary. Yet short termers do bring enthusiasm, news from home, and fresh insights to the field. Third, the Wheaton study found that the career missionaries felt that the value of the experience to the short termer himself makes the ven- ture worthwhile. Many career mis- by Dave lirdel sionaries ask that short termers con- tinue to be sent. Suggestions for Short-termers In conclusion, then, several suggestions might be offered to the student contemplating summer mis- sions, First, he should not make financial appeals on the basis of the tremendous ministry and evangelistic impact he will have. Second, while overseas he should be as alert as possible to avoid making too many cultural and social blunders. Pius Wakatama, an African stu- dent contemplating graduate studies in the United States, disclosed sober- ing perceptiveness in his message to Urbana '73 delegates entitled "Cultural and Social Qualifications for Overseas Service." Speaking of the ethnocentrism and cultural ig- norance of many missionaries, Wakatama observed that "to ignore the cultural mainstream is obviously to retard one's ministry. One cannot witness to people outside oftheir own cultural context. The very nature of the gospel does not lend itself to this kind of narrowness because the gospel has to do with all aspects of life .... Because a lack ofapprecia- tion of foreign culture comes from one's own background, a necessary qualification for missionary work is therefore a love and appreciation of one's own culture demonstrated by involvement in it .... " May God give us courage to ex- amine ourselves honestly so that He might use us as He did students in the past. Dave Erdel, a Pre-seminary Major, has spent nearly ten years in Equador as an MK. This fall he will be returning to spend the year helping his parents with the youth work and trying to complete his junior year by correspondence.

Al Tomlinson An on-campus Bible study was responsible for Al's acquaintance vyith the book .S'1taliz'.v in the Sermon mi Ilia Maint! by David Lloyd-Jones.

Geoff was introduced to the book at Urbana '73 and encouraged to read it by a fellow student. He appreciated Howard's unbiased. intellectual ap- proach tothe Scriptures on the Holy Spirit. He takes Scripture in a systematic way. looking at the most important Scriptures as a whole and then seeing what can be learned collectively from them. Howard deals specifically with the question of tongues.

'Impossible' Job Challenges Owen V. "Trying to please everyone is-just about impossible. That's life. isn't it'? That's also what Owen Cornelius, the head usher. has to say about the problems of ushering. "But," he adds. "I see a unique purpose as a Christian usher: I not only usher to serve people, but l usher to serve God also. That's the supreme purpose." The usher's job is not to be an ogre. telling people what to do and where to go. An usher is an authority to an audience, much like a policeman is an authority in traffic: giving directions in a helpful way. beneficial to all concerned. Ushering involves more than taking people to their seats and getting others to move to their right seats. Con- trolling the temperature, distributing handouts, collecting tickets and offerings, and making sure prayers aren't in- terrupted, accompany the task of seating. Owen mentioned communication as an integral part of his ministry as an usher. He must communicate to the people he serves as well as to those with whom he works. Communicating his authority to those he serves is often difficult because of various personalities. He related that people respect his authority but not always in an agreeable way. ln this. Owen feels that God is helping him "to understand people better" and to ask for wisdom in handling these various situations. Of the students who help in ushering, most are will- ing to give of their time and themselves. Only in special t. LEFT: Owen studies the milling crowd before chapel begins. ABOVE: A perplexed Owen pauses in his hectic pace for a moment of reflection. cases has there been a need for volunteers. such as when the Andrae Crouch Concert was here. Along with special cases come special problems. Overselling was one of the problems at the Crouch Concert. People were ushered to their seats only to find others already there and with the same seat assignments. At "The Mikado" presentation, a problem arose concer- ning the temperature. With a full house. the body heat generated prompted Mr. Soden to ask that the windows be opened. As Owen proceeded to comply with the in- structions. a woman approached him and asked that because of a recent illness she would appreciate the win- dows remaining closed. Some of the windows remained shut, but after intermission Owen tried opening them again. But she still insisted on keeping them closed. The situation was finally remedied by reseating her. Owen ended it with. "l survived the patience test and God taught me a lesson," As it is obvious. Owen counts it a blessing to serve God in the position ofan usher and eagerly shares that he has grown through his experiences. Thejob ofusher, with its responsiblities and problems, has proven its impor- tance in service.

Student Association Is Still live Here Student government has become vital to some students here on cam- pus. But to others, student govern- ment is a joke. With this thought in mind. let's look at our Student .Association considering these areas: our attitude toward it. its ac- complishments, and our needs. Some students are actually excited about student government. An in- teresting fact to note is that those who are excited about it are those w ho are inyolyed in it. Then there is the other side. lt is no secret during an S.A. meeting that a portion of the student population harbors a negative feeling, While the executive members in their ties and jackets gather hack stage and await the coming Pledge. Prayer, and Persecution. a few excited students eagerly anticipate arguments. But upon the majority ofstudents a strange feeling falls-something like dread, lf you were to ask one ofthese majority how he feels ahout student Outgoing President Denny Barta introduces the newly elected ofticers during the last S.A. meeting of the year. They stand next to the officers they will replace: Judy Summers for Diana Gregor as secretaryg John Cornell for Tom Foltz as Vice President of Scholastic Life: Ed Weirrick by Joe Sherman government you might hear something like, "Huh, it's okay. A friend of mine is in it and it's really helped him grow as a person," or, "lt's all right. but l don't want anything to do with it." Why this lack ofinterest? Many just do not care to be involved. But on the other hand, many simply do not have time. Most students carry a full academic load twhich can keep anybody busyl and also have part-time jobs either on or off campus. There are also very few students who do not have some type of responsibility in a local church. Many of our students are also married, some with families. When time is given to one's family, studies, work, and church, little time is left for student government. Another factor is that there seems to be a generally apathetic student at- titude all over concerning authority. for Greg Hooley as Vice President of Social Life. Owen Cornelius for Ken Sehmoyer as Vice President ofSpiritual Life, and Merv Charles the new SA. President. Many feel their "freedom" is violated by those people in government who have power. Beyond these reasons there is also the fact that so many of us are really out oftoueh with student governmentg we are unaware of what it does. S.A. exists to meet student needs. Of course before it can do that it needs to determine what the needs are. Let's consider what S.A. has done in the recent past in an effort to meet the needs. What are the S.A. accomplishments? Ask an on-campus student what would happen if Student Association ceased to exist. Chances are you would hear something like "There wouldn't be social activities." lt's true. A number of our "get- togethers" wouldn't be getting together if there were no Committee on Social Life. One of our needs is to have a break and get away from it all. lt's easy to complain about social life on campus, but activities are not easi- ly planned. The Social Life Com- mittee needs to be commended for the Andrae Crouch concert. As part of the family of FWBC and of the body of Christ, we also have spiritual needs. We need to be thankful for the work the Committee on Spiritual Life has been doing. We now have prayer partners and special prayer breakfasts. These are only as meaningful as we make them, of course. Also to be commended is the 1972- 73 V.P. of Spiritual Life, Lad Heistcn, who worked with his committee to provide a seminar on family life. The result? Spiritual Emphasis week with Dr. Kenneth Gangel. Needs were met. What are the academic needs? We are thankful for what has been done for us by our fellow students in the past. But as college students we do have more concerns than these that S.A. has worked on. We are in- terested in our academic life as well as the spiritual and social. Maybe S.A. should do some work on upgrading the image of the one who excels in his studies. Honors Convocation is a has- ty affair. Or maybe the grading system at B.C. should be evaluated by students. Should we be given a grade in a P.E. course just as we are in a theology course? Is there a need for more pass-fail courses at B.C.? Many more things could be con- sidered by our student government, things that have a direct effect on life at B.C. In all likelihood you have not agreed with everything you just read. That's good. You were not intended to. But hopefully you have thought. Think about student government. It is part of life at B.C. .A.-Sponsored Events Andrae Crouch and the Disciples at the Gospel Temple. Each year the Social Life Com- mittee sponsors activities that give the students a break from the routine of studies. Two events sponsored by Student Association second semester were the Ross and Bowles Concert and the Andrae Crouch Concert. The booking agent for Ross and Bowles contacted the Student Association: and the Student Association covered the cost of the concert so that there was no charge for the students. February l was set for the concert. lt was quite a different experience for us in that the whole program was entertaining. Two-hundred students attended the concert in the chapel, and they really enjoyed the folk-rock type of music that was performed. The Andrae Crouch concert was a suggestion made by Greg Hooley, Vice-President of Social Life. The group was contacted by the Student Association, and fortunately they had one open date, February 22, which worked out perfectly. The WOWO radio station provided S800 worth of prime time for advertising free of charge. All the expenses for the con- cert were covered by the sale of tickets, which were completely sold out two days before the concert. Thir- teen hundred people attended the concert held at the Gospel Temple. Both of these concerts made possi- ble through the efforts of the Student Association were thoroughly enjoyed.

Kathy Kirchenbauer at the Chapel Organ. Double Recital: Tim Ostrander Kathy Kirchenbauer The joint recital of Kathy Kirchenbauer and Tim Ostrander was held in Founders Memorial Auditorium on Sunday, April 21, 1974, at 2:30 p.m. Tim, a junior voice student studying under Mr. Ira Gerig, began the afternoon of music with "Fairest of Fair," by G.F. Handel. He continued on in the first part of the program with Antonin Dvorak's "Biblical Songs," which include "Clouds and Darkness," "Lord Thou Art My Refuge," "Hear My Prayerj' and "God is My Shepherd." Kathy, a senior organ student studying under Mrs. Shirley Platte, took command of the organ in the second portion of the program with a selection written by William Bradbury and arranged by Kathy, "Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us." Another of her selections was "Praeludium," by Johann Pachelbel. Tim once again took the stage in the third segment of the program singing Sven Lekberg's "I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes." He concluded his portion of the afternoon with Olive Dungan's "Be Still, and Know That l Am God." Kathy's performance was concluded by a "Gothic Suite" written by Leon Boellmann. The suite consisted of the "Introduction," "Menuet Gothiquef' "Priere a Notre-Dame," and "Toccata." Following the perfor- mance a reception for the musicians was held in the private dining room. Recitals Highlight Music Studies Dave Hamrick: Piano Recital The keys of the piano in the chapel "came alive" Wednesday night, April 24, at the very skillful command of Dave Hamrick. Dave, ajunior music major, presented his junior recital to the public, playing such works as Beethoven's "Sonata Pathetiquej' Mendelssohn's "Ron- do Capriccioso, Op. l4," and Alexander Tcherepnin's "Bagatelles, Op. S." His first selection ofthe evening was "Sonata No. 9 in A Major" by Domenico Scarlatti, and he finished his excellent performance with Ernst Toch's "Der Jongleur, Op. I3, No. 3." Linda Masopust: Organ Recital The senior recital by Mrs. Linda Masopust was presented January 27 in the sanctuary at First Missionary Church. Linda's mastery of the organ was evidenced by her skill in playing selections representing a wide variety of musical time periods from the very baroque style of "Prelude and Fugue in G Major" by Johann Sebastian Bach, to her own composition "Sarabande" She con- cluded her recital by performing Louis Vierne's "Finale from the First Symphony, Op. l4." Linda is the student of Mrs. Shirley Platte. Nancy Miu: Voice-Piano Recital The results of innumerable hours of study and prac- tice were displayed April 16 as Nancy Miu presented her senior recital in the chapel. The fine instruction of Mr. Ira Gerig was once again brought out as Nancy beautifully sang such songs as Robert Schumann's "Poet's Love" and Roger Quilter's "Weep You No More," one of the three selections in the Elizabealhan Lyrics. She also dis- played excellent talent and ability on the piano as she played Beethoven's "Sonata in E Major," and "Alleluia" by W. A. Mozart. Nancy's performance was a gratifying finale to her study at FWBC. Nancy Miu in senior recital Three little maids. Sharon Brumbaugh.

Meridell THE MIK D01 by Donna Hara The drama department ol' Fort NN ayne Bible College has continually strixen to bring variety to its stage. Se- cond semester's play showed proof ol' that in being not only different, but also unique in many nays. Thus, success was achieied again. as the mid-197-1 term brought the production of Cjilhert and SLllllNllllAN,uTl1C Mikado." There are a few obxious characteristics that made "Mikado" a novelty. The most outstanding ol these xx as the Japanese setting. ln the past. Luropean countries. the l nited States. and Biblical lands have served as backgrounds for plot. but this was thc first Oriental at- mosphere. The Oriental setting necessitated the use of Oriental make-up and costumes. the latter ol' which were rented from a costume company. The familiar "Made in Japan" insured the authenticity ol most props. except. of course. for the bridge made ol' wood and styrofoam and the xsilloxxs that began "weeping" during Thursday titgbtis performance. Xnother I.ictor that brought distinction to "Nlik.ido" is as the audience response. C omcdics-especially musical comedies-always draw a Carey, Miriam Frey, Cathy Herdman, Terri Polley, Becky Starbird, Sue Carothers. and Debbie Greenawalt. Unique Experience larger audience. and this was no exception. The play at- tracted the largest number of people ever to attend an FWBC production, with a record crowd for a Thursday night. The basic reaction of everyone seemed to be total enjoyment. as laughter continued spontaneously during intermission and after the final curtain. Critics and musicians from the community expressed their admira- tion for the college's achievement in bringing back Gilbert and Sullivan to Fort Wayne after a ten-year absence, The content of "Mikado" also demonstrated its un- iqueness for our campus. A recognized classic of almost one hundred years, this operetta was different from the serious religious dramas or straight comedies produced previously at FWBC. Due to the era in which it was written. the plot, a political satire on the British govern- ment, entertwined with many subplots, unlike modern plays which generally have a simpler story line. The characters in most plays try to represent three- dimensional personalities: however, in "Mikado," the characters were more like stereotypes or caricatures than real people, becoming melodramatic at points to emphasize the particular role. Casting the play was indeed unique. Participation was unprecedented. The cast numbered twenty-four tnine principal leads and fifteen chorus membersj plus an orchestra having six strings, the technical crew, and the Choral Union, who also helped in constructing the set. Ben Hur, of a few years ago, would rank second in number of participants, using approximately eighteen people for main parts. ln addition to the problem of choosing so many out of a student body of less than five hundred, there were other problems in the casting for "Mikado" First of all, musical ability had to be con- sidered even above that of acting since so much of the dialog involved singing. Secondly, each character had a specific range, i.e. soprano, tenor, etc., which further narrowed the selection. Aside from the fact that so many Cast of Characters The Mikado of Japan ...... . . .

Finally, the "Mikado" displayed its individuality in its organization. lt was the first time that the drama and music departments worked on a performance together. This combined effort also meant two directorsg however. the team of Soden and Platte worked together with clear communication and a minimum of difficulty throughout the entire production. The success of the play rested on their valuable experience. Every drama performed has those characteristics about it which are outstanding. distinctive. or memorable. This was not an exception. The "Mikado" truly was a unique experience and will not quickly be forgotten. Becky Starbird sits patiently as Nita White displays new skills in creating the oriental look.

The exhibit dis- played a variety of projects including pencil and ink sketches, sculpture, chalk and pastel drawings, collages. mobiles, candles, and oil paintings. Art creations that were judged to be of special interest were a set of amber candle holders by Rick Engle, a creation mobile by Doug Dafoe, and a chalk drawing of Sue Carothers done by Miriam Frey. by .ludy Bryant Field Trips Reinforce Learning Well before dawn on April 9. l97-l, forty-one FWBC students were thinking about rolling out of bed and get- ting ready for the Art, Archaeology, and Science field trip to Chicago.

The art students spent the first part of the day at the Art Institute as a group reviewing paintings from the Renaissance period. which they had been studying, as well as other periods of history. They spent the afternoon in the Thorne miniature rooms where they viewed miniature rooms completely furnished with intricate ehandaliers. needlepoint stools. and small tables w ith tiny spectacles on them. ln the Held Museum. the science and archaeology students took a look at the past. ln the Egyptian room they saw mummies. small idols. and "usheb-ti," which were small statues buried with wealthy kings. After lunch they spent an hour and a hall' in the Museum of Science and lndustry observing the wonders of modern man and then proceeded on to the Oriental Institute. Here they were especially intrigued by being able to sec part of the Scriptures from the Dead Sea Scrolls which had lain in caves for nearly 2.000 years. The students returned happy about a trip that was both very interesting and educational. by Randy Grieser Jane Guthrie and Randy Grieser read the identifications for the heads of pharaohs in the Egyptian Room at the Field Museum of Natural History. i 2 7 E111 ics Ser1'e5.'

"We have to work at thinking ofother persons besides ourselves." "If loneliness is so prevalent as we are led to believe it is, then surely the great sin of our time must be to be lonely alone." During the first chapel session Rev. Steve Binkley led us in experiencing the loneliness of others. In the second session which was combined with the April Spiritual Emphasis Day. he led us in a five-step lab experiment in relating to others. At the beginning we divided into groups of 5 or 6 and spent the morning exploring the steps in support of his thesis: "Loneliness is a natural emotional reoccurrence which can be kept to a minimum by exercising creative relational techni- quesf' According to Mark Atherton this is what happened: "I learned the meaning of living in the now, of recognizing the truth of this is the day the Lord hath made. In our group I met Bob excited, Debbi tired, Dan skeptical, and Ed in- terested. I learned that one must know his identity and his feelings to live in the now, I experienced thejoy of our singing together "Blessed Assurance," affirming to whom we are committed. I listened to each one of the group tell of how the fruit of the Spirit had been manifested in his life. and I thanked God out loud. "I learned I must see people real. and I was invited to examine my ow n preoccupation and selfishness as it relates to my not seeing other people as they are. Then I admitted my selfishness in a specific instance with specific people and I heard a brother pray about my sin that had separated me. "I learned I must love myself because seeing myself as a loveable person is another key to relating to others and accepting their love. As hard as it seemed I had to list five positive "I am" qualities, in order of importance, and share them with my group. "I learned I must give of myself to overcome my loneliness. I was asked to think of someone who needs an ex- pression of kindness from me. We shared what we must do and prayed for each other. "And then I learned I needed to simply eiijngi' the family to express that oneness with Christ. In times of loneliness I need to refuse to be lonely and go to the family. We sang "They shall know we are Christians by our love." and we really meant it. These are my personal recollec- tions. I know the situation was a con- trolled lab-like situation and all the participants were not ready. but I am excited about these steps with which to make deep relationships." by Mark Atherton Un l-riday.

The last section was the biggest audience pleaser as Bill Photos by D. Moore Pearce, assisted by Mayfield, did 21 mock broadcast ol' his own radio program. The concert concluded with the quartet being called back for an en- core. Glenn Jorian commented alterward that the quartet was very appreciative ol' such a responsive and sensitive audience.

The Choral Union, Chorale. Singing Collegians, and Wind Ensem- ble combined to perform a somewhat informal program filled with sparkle and variety. Brad Grabill, as master of ceremonies added to the spirit of informality with his introductions and explanations between some ofthe numbers. The program featured Vaughan Williams, great Twentieth-century English composer of many hymns. The pieces performed were "At the Name of Jesus," sung by Choral Union: "A Folk Song Suite," played by the Wind Ensembleg and "For All the Saints," done by the combined Choirs and Wind Ensemble in a stirr- ing grand finale. Two individual numbers were per- formed: a lively piano solo by Marsha Rohrs called "Maple Leaf Rag" and an organ solo by Linda Masopust called "Litanies." The program was planned and directed by Jay Platte.

This placed Greg against Larry in the linal match, which Greg won 10-2. The tournament accomplished all that its originator had hoped it would. It stirred excitement in all who par- ticipated. it enabled both players and coaches to have a good time ol' fellowship in the Lord. and it enabled FWBC to bring home two more championship trophies.

ABOVL: Coach Morley and his children observe the action, Power Volleyball Sparks nterest "Free ball" is not a new gimmick to get people to buy gas. "Free ball" is just part of the language used in power valleyball, a game which wasjust introduced into the varsity athletic program here at FWBC at the begin- ning of this year. Although volleyball is becoming one of the most popular team sports. most people have a distorted view of the game. When they think of volleyball, they think of times when they have played the game in their neighborhood or with their church when there have been twelve on a side and no boundary markers. To the volleyball fan, this is known as "jungle-ball" because few volleyball rules are followed. Power volleyball, however, is a demanding, fast. and exciting team sport. lt requires a combination of in- dividual skill with efficient team-work. The team-work required is just like that for other team sports. There is a place for every player at every moment of the game, as well as the switching of positions and signals for calling plays. Those who participate in the sport need a thorough knowledge of the game, but those who are spectators need some general knowledge too. One way to gain an understanding of the game is to read a short book on the subject, such as William Peck's Volleyball tLondon: Collier, 19701. Another way would be to attend a game. Some announcers explain the game as it is played. After watching a game. anyone would be convinced that volleyball is an exciting team sport.

Op- ponents actually help one another. Coaches from op- posing teams help young teams get a good start on the fundamentals. ln helping a new team get better, other teams will need to get better to beat them. Thus, the com- petition will improve. One such coach is Mr. Beermine, Wayne H.S., who recently brought his high school team over to show us where we needed help. Mr. Beermine has been on the U.S. Olympic team and played volleyball all over the world. Along with coaching at Wayne H.S., he is playing and coaching the Michiana team, considered the best in the U.S. He was able to give us many helpful tips and en- couraging words. Concern like this is what has helped our team to come so far in such a short time. Though our season might be considered a losing one by the number ofgames won, the team feels that we have won in a more important way. First, we were able to start a new sport at B.C.. and we have a good foundation started for next year. Also, we were able to make a stand for Christ in front ofthe other teams. We are looking forward to a growing season this year. by Bob Howell iq 11 dei S '-s , F vdd Hahegger gets the tip-1111 'Nr ., ' ardiac Kid ' Successful l11ep11te11t1a111l the 1973-7-1 "1'lg11llI1g 1'alc1111s" was 1 mystery as tl1e hziskethall season rolled around.

The girls lacked height, but their willingness to work hard in practices and their teamwork on the basket- ball court helped them finish the season with a record of3 wins and 2 losses. Despite the lack of fans to support the team, the girls were sparked with real enthusiasm. They had a lot of fun along with experiencing personal satisfac- tion. With this hard-working team and the chance for a 9 or I0 game schedule, the outlook for the 1974-75 season is even better. 5' J .1 g .1 Awards at Athletic ,fi 1- -L . ' .- . 3, ff.

Herman Varsity Sports Valuable Experience During the school year it has become quite common to find girls running Founders' stairways in training for women's varsity sports. Girls also can be found diving and rolling to the floor as they practice new power volleyball skills. Volleyball season for girls began early in the fall semester and continued until basketball season pushed its way injust before semester break. During both volleyball and basketball seasons, games were scheduled with other intercollegiate teams: Bethel, Grace, Marion, and St. Francis. Often game time was scheduled for Saturday mor- ning. Sometimes this meant the athletes would have to drag themselves out of bed at 5:30 A.M. and into frost- covered van to travel several hours. What took place at the games? What possible value is there in practicing for such games? Allow some of the sportswomen to speak for themselves: -Ruth Bauman: "ln sports you learn to work together with people. Sports can be a real growth and witness area in one's Christian life." by Becky Travis -Renee Jones: "I found a great relief from the pressures of studies. That's the main reason why l en- joyed it so much." -Annette Friesen: "You get lots of exercise and it keeps you in better health. Also, it keeps you from gain- ing weight from cafeteria cooking." -Kathy Buxton: "lt's a lot of fun. You get to meet new people. ln a way it's a lot of work, yet you feel like you have accomplished something when you're done." -Debbie Kehl: "I have gained many new friends. and it is good exercise. lt helps you to get involved in ex- tracurricular activities." -Becky Akers: "Personally, it helped me with my temper in depending on God to help me have self-control on the court." Everyone had her own reason for getting involved in varsity sports. Perhaps it is not even significant that both the volleyball team and basketball team had a winning season of 3-2, because winning came only as an extra benefit. And Suddenly Ifs April ,.

X1 April means two. April means .1 walk April means release Each of the main sessions with Pastor DeWitt were based on a word which deals with the use ofour potential for God. Discovery was the word around which Friday evening's session was formed. Emphasis was placed upon finding one's abilities and knowing one's self, for the way a person see's himselfinfluences the way he sees God and others. Saturday morning's session was aimed at developing one's potential. Pastor DeWitt's message entitled, "Concept of Christianity," set the background for a dis- cussion concerning how each individual views Christiani- ty. The "contamination project" helped the participants to understand that each person's concept of Christianity is formed by the mixture of Biblical Christianity and the "contaminated view of Christianity." Saturday afternoon in a program called Poiema, members of the College family joined to demonslrale the potential God has given them in music. All the major gospel teams ofthe college along with many "unknowns" performed compositions and arrangements done by BC students or some other member of the BC family. Demonslrale was again the topic Saturday evening. Emphasized by Pastor DeWitt and the project groups was the demonstration of one's faith in God. DeWitt's message, "Expanding Your Expectancies' was an en- couragement to place more of our lives in Cvod's control without worrying about the results. ,smug-:V Lljirry ' is ' 'ts wt i 'Kay kciwryl and De b b i e an d Sarah Gerig. The topic of the two messages and the one project group Sunday was using the talents we have for God. As we donate and dedicule our abilities to serving God and others, God will bring fruit from our endeavors. lt was pointed out that everything, including ourselves is Gods Therefore, we must return to Him what is rightfully His. During the project groups for teens, Youth Spon- sors' Workshops were held with Terry Angles, the Minister of Family Development at Calvary Baptist Church in Findlay, Ohio. These workshops proved to be for many sponsors a highlight of Youth Conference. Many Bible College students attended these workshops. Mr. Angles is now writing a series of booklets on Eight Steps to a Meaningful Life." The following topics were covered in the Youth Sponsors' Workshops: Qualifications ofa Godly Youth Pastor, Responsibilities of Youth Sponsors, Developing Friendships, A Personal Approach to Counselling, and Developing a Youth Program.

"As Time Goes On" was the theme, recalling the memories which belong to the seniors from their four- year stay at FWBC. To help remind the seniors of the passing time, slides were shown depicting a few seniors during their early years. The M. C. for the evening was the one and only Ira Gerig. Professor of Music. Through his easy-going manner and funny comments, he helped create an atmosphere of relax- ation and laughter.

As "greenie" lreshmen entering these halls ol' higher education several years ago. we found ourselves wandering through campus lite bewildered by the mad pace and mage ol' schedules. Not quite sure ol' what to do next. we wondered how we would ever become oriented. Then suddenly. Ieeling again that same sense ol' bewildernient. we liound ourselves walking dow n Rudisill Boulevard in those floppy gowns and ill-litting caps on our way to graduation exercises. We llelt un- prepared. Somehow, without enough realistic forethought or warning, we were being catapulted into gradua- tion and out ol' our secure academic lile. Sobered by the memories ol' our busy years here at FWBC and by the thoughts of the evernearing future. Graduation Day was not the exciting day of which we had long dreamed. The weight of responsibility l'elt in- creasingly heavy on our shoulders that day. isa, ,!, 5 'ff K. 5 ai sfifiglf 1 1 it ft .w-A if 3 f r ,. X .
