Offender Bill Clem pays the penalty.
l spent a lot oftime the weekjust
before freshman initiation thinking
about it. 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.

React to Initiation

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

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
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!"

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.

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.
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
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

Scholar, rhetorician, wit, gentleman-the nouns
describe Mr. Ronald Scharfe, an active member of the
F.W.B,C. family since August of 1970, who fills two
roles as Head Librarian and Assistant Professor of Bi-
ble. 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

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-
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
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
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

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-
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."

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.

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
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,
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.
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

The Ftoad Goes Ever On:
J. Fi. Fi. Tolkien 1892 - 1973
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
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
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.

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
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:

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
. "" " 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-
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
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

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.

"Student Missionary Fellowship is an integral part
of Fort Wayne Bible College," declared Dr. Timothy
Warner in this year's opening SMF assembly. 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
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-
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.

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

Pre-season Builds Me
It is late afternoon on a brilliant autumn day. 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

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
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.

"I donlt want your sacrifices-I want your love, I
donlt want your offerings-I want you to know me."
fHosea 6:6J This verse contains all the principles man will
ever need in establishing the priorities of life. 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
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.

Taking A Look
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.
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
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

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
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
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"

Christmas Was . . .
In the midst of taking final exams, buying presents
for roommates and family, getting plane tickets, and
decorating the dorm rooms, Christmas came-and so did
two feet of unexpected snow.
Several weeks prior to semester's end our Christmas
festivities began. On December 9, we were inspired by
listening to the annual performance of Handel's Messiah.

Lordship Of Christ
"What is the major reason why evangelical
Christians believe that the Bible is God's Word
written, inspired by His Spirit and authoritative
over their lives? 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
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
"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 "
"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."

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. Well, kid, let this be an inspiration to
you to get on the stick.

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 30, 2:00 P.M.
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

Christ to become "Lord of my life." It has to begin with

Aid For The 551.6 Million Headache . . .
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
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

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-

Responses came from all over the United States,
from believers and non-believers, from Sunday School

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
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."

Funny? lt wouldn't have been if
you were a student a few years ago.
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

thics Series Picks Up Key Issues
Notes On Integrity: Dr. Warner
To say "Everybody does it," is to imply that there is
no standard beyond social acceptability, but history
testifies that social conscience unsupported by a concept
of personal honor will always lead to a corrupt society.
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.

hey Did A Fine Job.
From Beginning To End
. ...,., E
Pete Strubhar-The all-time
leading scorer in FWBC history. One
of the hardest workers l've ever
coached. "Pistol Pete" is also an ex-
cellent defensive player, deserving of
all the awards he has received.
Larry Lewis-Typilies the ball
player a coach looks for when
scouting. Winner of the Hustle-
Sportsmanship award last year. Has
done a tremendousjob playing an un-
natural position. His best years are
still ahead of him.
Todd Habegger-A coach's
delight! Works hard, and is showing
improvement in all areas of his game.
When he becomes aggressive, he is
almost impossible to stop. Tremen-
dous career ahead of him.
Bill Campbell-Last year's
Most-Improved Player, Bill has
picked up this year where he left off
last year. Strong offensive threat, and
has become a tough defensive player.
Improving on the boards. Senior year
should be his best.
Bob Batson-A leading can-
didate for most improved player
award for this year. "Boomer" has
improved in every phase of the game.
Has drawn many charging fouls this
year. He is continuing to become an
offensive threat, and is beginning to
make his size felt under the boards.
Dan McMillan-Dan has
worked hard to make himself the
valuable "sixth player" of the 73-74
Falcons. Does a fine job of scoring
and boarding. Needs to gain con-
fidence in ball handling. His defense
is showing steady improvement. Next
year will be a good one because of ex-
perience gained this year.
Greg Ponchot--Has turned in
some big pinch hit roles. Steadily
gaining confidence in his whole game.
Lack of experience has hurt him, but
he has shown a willingness to work
hard. Only a freshman, he will see a
lot of playing time at FWBC.
Carl White-Another freshman,
Carl isbeginning to show the poten-
tial that was anticipated this year.
Tends to be too timid. When
aggressive he can do thejob. Needs to
work on his defense. Has shown a
real desire to improve whole game.
An important member of the Falcons
as team comedian. Keeps us all loose.
Don Phillips-Lack of ex-
perience has really hurt him, but has
shown a positive attitude towards

Take A Closer Look
by Gary Oser, editor
As the editor of the third issue of The Vine, I would
like to welcome returning students and extend a hearty
welcome to the new freshmen.
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

did contribute. The following five pages were written by
freshmen about things that a new freshman on campus
might find particularly helpful. 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
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.
by Patsy Renee Jones
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
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
"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-
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
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.
1 by Gail Anderson
Work is one of the most dreaded words in the
English language. 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
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.
E T Scheduling Time
HI by Lori Papazian
and Flossie Johnson
"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
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
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-
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.

and Jerry Miller
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
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
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
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-
-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
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
- 'E Finding A Church
by John Jones
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

"l want to go home. l hate this place. Please let me
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
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."

say, "We love you here at Fort Wayne Bible College."

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.

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

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
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-
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
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
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

are to be present to some extent in all

'Impossible' Job Challenges Owen
"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
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

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-

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

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
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
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
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
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.
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.
Gratitude needs to be shown to those
who work in Student Association.

Double Recital: Tim Ostrander
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.
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.

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

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
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

Art Exhibit Displays Creativity
The Fort Wayne Bible College Library served as the
showcase for a Spring Art Exhibit, April ll-27, which
was instrumental in displaying some of the imagination
and creativity of Bible College students enrolled in Mrs.
Soden's Introduction to Art Classes. 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

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. By 5:30 a.m. Dr. Weddle. Mrs. Soden. and
the students were on the bus and ready to leave for
Chicago. Dr. Weddle. and the twenty'-one science and
archaeology students went to the Held Museum of
Natural History, thc Oriental lnstitute of the Univeristy
of Chicago, and the Museum of Science and lndustry.
while Mrs. Soden and thc nineteen art students spent thc
entire day at the Art Institute.
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

Spring tennis actixities were centered around the
HX BC lnxitational Tennis Tournament. which was
originated and directed by Coach Kent Hshel. Grand
Rapids School ol' the Bible and Music. Grand Rapids
Baptist L ollege. and John Wesley College. all members ol'
the National Association ol' Christian Colleges. were in-
x ited to participate in the tournament. The purpose olthe
tournament was to encourage other conlierence schools to
start a tennis program this coming tall. lt also gate those
intolxed a lot ol' practice and exercise.
lzach school entered lixe indixiduals in the tourna-
ment. .-X draw was made to determine the order ol' play.
and it was established that some olithe matches would be
pla5ed on the Bible College courts and others on the
XX ayne HS. courts. .-Xt the completion ol' each match, the
score was reported to the director. Coach lfishel. and the
next match was started.
Greg Ponchot and Larry Lewis captured liirst and se-
cond place respectixely in the tournament. Dennis

ol Grand Rapids Baptist College. and Larry played a
great game by defeating Dennis Hartfel when at one time

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.

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
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. Help promote
BC's varsity volleyball team by encouraging the players,
supporting the team, attending games, or, better yet,
become a participant yourself.

lympic Player Shares Tips
Volleyball, being a relatively young sport in the U.S.,
has not had time for grudges or rivalries to build up. 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-
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

More Games To Be Scheduled
More potential, talent more evenly balanced, and
better organization made this year's girls' basketball team
a success. 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.

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 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.
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-
-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

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
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.

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
Surely those involved in Youth Conference have
learned something of how to Discover, Develop,
Demonstrate, Donate, and Dcdicatc their Potential more
effectively for God.

More than two-hundred attended
the Junior-Senior banquet held at the
Three Rivers Ballroom in the Marriot
Inn, April 19, l974.
"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.
Special music was provided by a
young Christian group called "The
Brothers" from Youngstown. Ohio.
They sang songs ranging from hard to
soft rock about the Lord Jesus Christ
and what he has done for them in
their own lives.
