' vnS LZg Jforctuorb The Northwestern Hihle and Missionary Training School, in its teaching, activities and environment, fits young men and women for efficient, active soul- winning and Christian service. We have endeavored in this issue of the Scroll to accurately set forth our school, give permanent ex¬ pression to the finest memories of the graduating class, to perpetuate thoughts that will strengthen hearts, to encourage young men and women to fit themselves for the Lord’s service, to present the wa of salvation and to point souls to the Savior. If our Annual does these things, the hopes and prayers of the class of 1926 will he realized. if One of the primary aims of our Bible School lias always been to build Christian character. The method by which it is done in our school has suggested to us the idea of drawing a parallel between our experience in The Northwestern Bible School and the process by which gold is taken from the mines and worked into precious products. In doing so, we have divided our Annual into four sections, featuring The Sources, The Plant, The Process, and The Product. It is the purpose of the scenic section to portray The Sources—the varied localities from which God has called us. ' Pile second section presents The Plant. It is in the plant that crude ore is changed into finished products. Northwestern aims to do this with the lives entrusted to her care. In this connection we give a glimpse of our buildings, administration, faculty and curriculum. ’Flic third section gives The Process, featuring school life, classes and literary expression. Here again is drawn the parallelism between the crushing, melting, refining and tempering of gold, and the process of school life by which we become “thoroughly furnished unto all good works”. Our last section sets forth The Product. This is the test of every gold refinery and the proof of the worth of a school. This division features practical work and the accomplishments of the various classes and the alumni in the Master’s service. In all, we have endeavored to bring before you a picture of greatly varied groups of students, called out of diverse environments and every walk of life, who, in the pursuit of their courses at Northwestern arc edified in their Christian lives, built up in character, and melted into one common unit bound by mutual ties to each othei and to the heart of the Heavenly Father.

ON TOLL OWING „ ■ (Cfjc 20istori of tf)c ;% cf)ool The Northwestern Bible and Missionary Training School is the outgrowth of an ideal conceived by our superintendent, Dr. W. B. Riley. It was founded in 1902, with three instructors and seven students, who met in a small room of the old First Baptist Church to study the Word of God, with a view to effective pre¬ sentation of the gospel. The course originally required two years, and the first graduate received her diploma in 1904. From these small beginnings the student body increased, and the faculty changed and grew in number until it was necessary to enter larger quarters. The building at 6 So. 11th was acquired in 1904 to house the school, but before long even this proved too small for the growing numbers, and recourse was made to the chapel of the First Baptist Church for classes. In 1921 three splendid dormitory buildings at 15th Street and Harmon Place, across from Coring Park, were purchased. These, up to the present time, have been used for the girls. Jackson Hall was completed in 1923, and its splendid facilities were available to the Northwestern Bible School for class rooms and offices. From the three original instructors, the teaching staff has increased to twenty, whose calibre is unequalled by any Bible School in the country. In like manner the courses of study have kept pace with the physical equipment. ’The two-year course gave place to three; additional classes in English were added, and the standards of scholarship have been steadily raised. Now we arc inaugurat¬ ing a four-year course to provide academic training for those who have not had complete preparatory courses. We are ready also to provide students of mature mind or training with a one-year’s concentrated Bible Study course. This school began with a vision of a man of God, and has been supported and sustained through prayer and the interest of God’s people. ' The purpose was then and now is to supply the crying need of the church for young men and women rooted and grounded in Christ, saturated with the Word, familiar with the doctrines of the faith, awake to their responsibility for spreading the Gospel, afire with the desire to win souls, capable of showing the way of life to the lost, of opening up the Scriptures to those who know it not, and at all times of giving to Christ the pre¬ eminence.

Rn.i-v If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me”. (Matthew 16:24). What did Christ mean? First of all. He meant this: There is DIFFICULTY IN DISCI PLUSH IP. Let him deny himself. 1 here was never a harder condition put into any re¬ ligion.. Self-abnegation! Who is equal to that? IIow many of us are conquered h Satan at this point of selfishness! I was thrown into close companionship, some time ago, ith a man most widely known in religious circles, a leader of more than national fame, and I found him as selfish, and self-seeking as though Christ had never lived or taught. 1 was afraid, and said, “Am I like him? Am I living in this world solely for the sake of self? Is it possible that I know nothing of the first condition of discipleship?” Beecher was right when he said, “Religion is a life of self-denial, just as husbandry is a life of death. 1 he farmer must buy the seed and bury it for the sake of the harvest.” Self-denial belongs to the highest human life. The lower nature must always be denied when you are trying to reach a higher sphere. You can’t be an artist without denying yourself; you cant be honest without denying yourself; you can’t he a man at all, in distinction from the brute, without denying yourself. Who then will think of being a Christian until he crucifies the fleshly lusts? All greed, all unholy possessions, and self-centering purposes must he put aside if you are to become a disciple; there is the difficulty. It would not be hard to form the church into larger numbers if character was taken no account of. Rut when you ask men to be clean, to be honest, to be conse¬ crated ere they confess the name of the Holy One. they hesitate, procrastinate, and clinging to the lower passions and practices, perish! Secondly, there is also DISCOURAGEMENT IN DISCIPLESHIP. A cross at its commencement—“If any man will come after me, let him take up his cross.” Christ and all that is His, has always the cross to offer. It is an offense to many. Y ou can t come to Calvary without encountering the cross. It was Beecher also who said, “To the end of life the way of Christ is the way of the cross.” 1 go into certain churches and the cross is everywhere. It is over the priests’ heads; it is before the altar; it is about the necks of fine ladies and servant girls, but that is not the cross of our text; that is not the cross Christ meant. There is no burden in a cross so borne. He staggered under the weight of His cross; He died on its cruel arms; it was no adornment to His person. It was no plaything of which to he proud. It was no sentimental symbol. It was an awful fact before His face, an awful burden upon His back, an awful tragedy at the end of His life. The true disciple will not go gaily through this world making an adornment for the person, a fetish for the affections of that on which Christ was crucified, but will he crucified with Him, and enter into the fellowship of His sufferings. Spurgeon said, “Christ is our example in cross bearing. He had not where to lay His head in life, nor a rag to cover him in death, nor anything hut a borrowed grave in burial. What manner of persons ought we to he in all unselfishness when we have had such a Lord?” " Must Jesus bear the cross alone And all the world go freef ■ o there’s a cross for everyone And there s a cross ' for me. -The consecrated cross I ' ll bear, Till death shall set me free; And then yo home my crown to wear I ' or there ' s a crown for me.” 1 hirclly, there is DANGER IN DISC1PLESHIP. Christ never sought ease or safety, and Christianity docs not promise either for this present world. 1 he Christian is to follow Christ, and endure hardship as a good soldier. I lie church is surfeited today with ease-loving men and women, with those who dislike a gospel of self-denial, who are oppressed when vou lav crosses upon them and who have no thought of going where Jesus guides. They want to he in the church, but not to hear crosses. God deliver us from a greater growth of tins kind 1 he young man who does not purpose to crucify self, and carrv burdens for Ins blessed Lord is unfit for the Kingdom. I noticed in the papers the other day that the maidens of South Africa love the warriors of their tribes. A man may be old and ugly, but if his breast is battle scarred, they admire him and marry him. And so our Christ must love those who lia e courage, who march at Mis command, and who are bracing all danger to defeat the devil and redeem their fellow-men from sin. To this conflict, Christ calls today; for this conflict, He stands Himself full to the front and savs to His followers! “Come on!” Someone asked Joan of Arc why her standard was so victorious, and she re¬ plied. " Because 1 say to it, ‘Go boldly among the English,’ and follow it myself.” But Christ is a braver leader still. He carries His standard of truth into the enemies’ ranks and only asks His disciples to follow. Are you His disciple? Will you dare for Him? Will you sacrifice for Him? Will you follow Him? I remember how, when as an unconverted man, my heart used to pulse with desire to take up the cross to follow Christ, and yet how many times cowardice con¬ quered! Is it so with you? Then ask Him to help, and sav once for all “Anv- where I’ll follow!” Down in the valley with my Savior I would yo, II here the flowers ' are blooming and the sweet waters flow; Everywhere He leads me I will follow, follow on, Walking in His footsteps, ' till the rrou’n is won. " Down in the valley with my Savior I would go, here the storms are sweeping and the dark waters flow, II ith his hand to lead me I will never, never fear — Dangers never fright me if my Lord is near.” oarb o t Directors Dr. Stax lev B.

Norum Our Class Adviser tester bay A backward look brings memories of first days spent at Northwestern. As Freshmen we were initiated into the mysteries of school life, and were pleasantly surprised at every new development. We found adequate equipment for serving us in our dormitory experience, and found joy in meeting our fellow students each afternoon in devotions. A spirit of helpfulness and prayer pervaded the atmosphere from the very first, which contributed largely to our optimistic and expectant out¬ look upon the future. We soon learned that discipline had a definite place in the program, and although many of us had never known much restraint on personal liberty, we saw that regularity was a most necessary part of this new life. The classrooms brought us in contact with the faculty, whom we soon learned to respect and love. The most striking revelations were the truths in God’s Word, which were brought to us as light from Heaven. Our yesterday is gone, but not forgotten. fEobajp We often find ourselves saying that we have no time, but we arc reminded that we have all the time there is. The past is gone forever, the future is unknown, but the present is ours. In it arc untold possibilities either for success or failure. As Juniors, we are studying as never before, because we have learned how to “apply our hearts unto wisdom’’, and know that true wisdom is of God. Our class is smaller in numbers, but our vision is enlarged, and our zeal for the Lord ' s service increases, as we learn to know Him more perfectly. Comorrolu We wait expectantly for our Senior Year, the last that we shall spend at North¬ western. Each succeeding day brings us new and precious truths from divine reve¬ lation, to make us “thoroughly furnished” for the tasks before us. Thank God for the examples and teachings of our Spirit-filled instructors. We hope to repay them by living lives of self-sacrifice and service. When the future looks dark and discouraging, we shall remember our class motto, “The eternal God is our refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” Nationalities and denominations mean nothing to us who are all made one in Christ. May we, by the providence of God, find avenues of service in being shepherds and under-shepherds for, and with Him, revealing the love of God, the liberty in Christ and the all-sufficiency of the Saviour for every one that comes to Him. “Blessed be His glorious name forever.” Jfrcsfjmcn OFFICERS Herman Rav. John Patten. Mabel Holtz. Gorden Hansen. President Vice President Secretary Treasurer OUR CLASS POEM A noble purpose, pure and good, An inward Love that us constrains, For on the Cross, Redemption’s blood Was shed, to wash away our stains; And in response to His glad call, To Christ we pledge our Loyalty. Let us rejoice in giving all, “In doing well, not weary be.” Our class within Northwestern’s walls Has gathered, from afar and near. We know Friend Wisdom’s in these halls; And through God’s Word, we seek Her here. Though talents may be different, And spheres of work will vary some, One common purpose ’twas that sent Us here; one Voice that said to come. •Perspiration “His brow is ivet with honest sweat, He learns what e ' er he can. " might well be said of each member of the Freshman class. From sunrise to moon- rise, week in, week out, he is always on the go. In the seclusion of his den, in the scholarly atmosphere of the lecture hall, or in active service for the Master; yea! " Toil iny—re j oicin y —pc rspiring. Onward through life he goes; Each morning sees some task begun. Each evening sees it close. " inspiration We are, as Freshmen, especially susceptible to the influence of environment. Inspirations come to us here at school from many sources, stimulating our growth, and also our desire to continue to grow. Chapel services are a daily inspiration. The wholesome friendship of other classmen who are making heroic efforts against many obstacles to prepare for the Lord’s work, inspire us as individuals to deeper, truer consecration. Our practical work groups and experiences of direct answer to prayer are an encouragement. The value of our daily fellowship meetings in the dormitories, where we separate ourselves from the rush of the day’s demands, to wait upon God in prayer and testimony is incalculable. However, the spring of deepest inspiration is the written Word of God, given to us, void of error, by the operation of the Holy Spirit. Our greatest source of inspiration comes as we daily read and meditate upon the Scriptures under the direction of instructors whose very lives give us a burning desire to “study to show ourselves approved unto God.” Aspiration We feel sure that God has called us to Northwestern for the purpose of pre¬ paring ourselves for more active Christian service. Whether we shall carry the gospel to “the uttermost parts of the earth” or whether we shall impart the Word of God to those in the home-land we do not know, but our supreme desire is to be in just the place where the Father needs each one of us. While in school we want to be in active service for the Lord, witnessing to those about us “of the hope that is within us”. We desire to be instrumental in bring¬ ing others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to glorify His name. Therefore, “let us not be weary in well doing”, but let us “press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus , knowing that “the eternal God is our refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” “itloperation” Greatly loved by every Freshman is our class adviser, Mr. Moyer, who daily unfolds the Word in the Freshman’s own class—Synthesis. As the truths of the Scriptures sink deep within our hearts, so within our memories we hear the oft- repeated echoes of his voice, saying: “You are an intelligent class.” “Well, have your own way.” “Arc you up with your reading?!?!?!!” “You’re no good—now remember that.” “Am 1 going too fast?—No! Are you going to slow? - - - Y-c-s!” As a class we have profited by perspiration, inspiration, as¬ piration, but above all by “Moyeration . R. L. Moyer II Tim. 2:15 Fred Daiii. We affectionately dedicate this page to the memory of Fred Dahl, a much beloved member of the Class of ’26, who, after two years with us, was drowned July 11, 1925, while engaged in evangelistic work at Osceola, Wis. Every remembrance of him is a benediction and inspiration. ■Hi Hitcrarp Appreciation ' I ' he field of literature offers a wealth of intensely interesting material for con¬ sideration and study, which amply repays the persistent and discriminating reader. Good taste in this sphere is as important, as capable of direction and development, and as cumulative as in any other department of life. Literary appreciation is largely a matter of cultivation so, logically enough, purpose, persistence, and discernment are three great factors in its acquisition. As we master these three agents and overcome the enemies of each, we will become proficient and exact in our literary appreciations. The enemies of purpose arc vac¬ illation and false valuation, those of discernment arc bias and external influences, and those of persistence are indifference and personal insubordination. The demands and opportunities of literary criticism and appreciation are world¬ wide. No other field of learning opens such a sphere of profitable knowledge but as yet its conquest is only begun. Well may we ask ourselves the question, Will 1 pay the price and join the conquest ? Efjc itlorc gfjunbant JLiit Life should mean more than a mere physical existence. To the psychologist it is the proper functioning of the intellect, emotions, and will; the correct employ¬ ment of the intellect leading one into the world of knowledge, that of the emotions into the field of appreciation, and that of the will into the world of human con¬ duct and relationships. To properly live, then, means that we must full-heartcdly enter into these realms of life and discover their secrets. The question remains, Will we do it, and to what extent? Christianity entertains no quarrel with true science, hut rather embraces it as a worthy ally; so in this instance we will not discard the psychologist’s definition of life, which, if consistently interpreted, leads to Christ and the eternal truths of the Bible. Taking this conception of life, let us ask the question. Who is going to really live? the unregenerate man or the Christian? The man outside of Christ can discover many priceless legacies and appropriate them; he is doing it every day; hut beyond a fixed line he is faced by closed doors. Behind those doors arc the joys of salvation, eternal life, and God. Only beyond them is the More Abundant Life. Behind the door of the intellect is the knowl¬ edge of God ; behind the door of the emotions is the appreciation of Divine Love, and behind the door of will is a vieldedncss to the will of a loving Heavenly Father. Every unregenerate man comes to these doors of the inner life, hut he never enters and crosses the threshold until he accepts, by simple faith, the Author of all wisdom. Spiritual things are not revealed unto those who are not in possession of a saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. The King only reveals His treasures to those who are in personal relationship with Him. Christ puts us in that relationship and gives us the password. He says, “1 am the way, the truth, and the life”. He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly.

It con¬ sists in countless throngs who are alone, yet are surrounded hy magnificent libraries and pressed by surging multitudes on every hand. They arc seemingly unconscious of the throhhings of the heart needs of those with whom they daily come in contact, and surely they have not yet learned the satisfaction and profit that the companion¬ ship of books affords. What a priceless privilege is afforded us in books! As we read we can share the choicest gems of the thoughts of master minds. We can live with kings, queens, famous generals, statesmen, heroic soldiers of the Cross, poets and the great men of all time. Their experiences become ours but for the taking. History, literature, art, and science is hut the language of the souls of great men as expressed through hooks. Let us espouse them and make them a part of our very being; then we really shall know the meaning of companionship with books. The world is full of good books. Search them out as you would your friends, hut above all remember that the greatest book is the Bible. Its truths can never he exhausted. It is a veritable gold mine of unlimited wealth. Each discovery and gem taken from its depths challenges to even greater findings ahead, all the while revealing with ever increasing glory the Christ, its center, and Salvation, its end.

Foi.ey SIN HAS SEPARATED MANKIND Sin has separated man from man and irritated his relationship. To bring men again into a common relationship and remove the irritation thereof is a prodigious task; this is what God has undertaken in behalf of humanity. UNITY IS IN CHRIST. THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH The union of all things is in Him, and the cementing power in the accomplish¬ ment of this union is the blood of His cross. The church, of which He is the head, is His chosen agency, in and through which He operates in the world today. ' I his body we have seen fit to term “God’s Melting Pot”. 1 he scriptures indicate the appropriateness of this term. Judaism made provision for the reception of the Gentile as a proselyte, but there was no power in Judaism by which real unity could be brought about. It is an impressive fact that not until Judaism was entirely eradicated from the early church, did or could that unity which was her exclusive and peculiar privilege be enjoyed. God’s provision for unity is the church. Only in the church has provision been made whereby barriers of all kinds might be broken down, and distinctions of every description done away. Though the members of His body have until this day been slow to realize it, the fact remains that the love of God in Christ is the melt¬ ing fire and the “Church which is His Body” the “Melting Pot’ for estranged humanity. GOD’S PLAN IS PROGRESSIVE The plan and purpose of God has never changed, but His teaching has advanced, as His people have developed the power of apprehension. Jesus said that He had many things to say unto His disciples, but He must, for the time, refrain on account of their inability to receive (John 16:12). It is not strange therefore, to find the precious truths of God’s Melting Pot withheld, to be divulged through Paul, the chosen vessel. In the opening words of his letter to the Romans, Paul tactfully shows that he is not bringing something new or novel to them, but instead is bring¬ ing the Good News of God which He “promised afore in the Holy Scriptures”. The Good News infolded there, was now to be unfolded. Acts 9:15. THE MELTING POT IS CAST AND THE PROCESS BEGUN The plan was of old, and the melting fire had long been kindled, but the first appearance of the “Melting Pot” is at the sunrise, and during the early morning of the Day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit’s work, when He came in His official capacity on that day, was to unify the waiting units, and to begin that melting process which is to terminate when all the elements arc merged into the completed body of Christ, one homog¬ eneous whole. The Day of Pentecost was, in one sense, more than a twenty-four hour day. It is a day that still continues, and will remain until the melting process is compieted, and until every semblance of difference has entirely disappeared; when we shall have come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a full grown man; unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ (Eph. 4:11-13). From this same Scripture, we learn that today is the day of perfecting, that will end in the day of perfection; today is the day of melt¬ ing; the coming day will be the day of fusion. Then the members of His Body will no longer be a sum but a whole. May the dear Lord give us patience dur¬ ing the process! DIFFERENCES ARE DESTROYED There is no partiality in the nature of God. In His sight there is no difference between men. All have sinned. Every individual soul is bankrupt of righteousness, has not a penny worth of working capital, and now the Good News is announced that, to meet this condition, God has opened a gift fund to provide righteousness. The condition of appeal to God is man’s need, the condition of man’s supply is that he by simple faith appropriate God’s gracious provision. After showing the comprehensiveness of God’s grace in Christ through the use of that wonderfully welcome word “whosoever” in Rom. 10:11-17, and the power of the Cross in Eph. 2:11-18, Paul shows the climax to be in the mystery revealed through |,j m _“That the Gentiles should be fellow-heirs, and fellow-members of tbe body, and fellow-partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the Gospel ’. In Colossians that blessed truth is expressively enriched (Col. 1:27). Salvation for the Gentiles had been plainly revealed in the Old Testament Scriptures, but here we have something more than simply tbe salvation of the Gentiles; it is salva¬ tion plus equal heirship, equal membership and equal participation of the promises in Christ by the Gospel. And now in the 27th verse He gives us a precious, price¬ less, present possession—“the hope hoped for, which is future, and the hope of the glory, which is present. The anticipation and the realization are not two things as to character, but as to degree. This is especially true: that the anticipation of every believer is sure to issue in realization of glory. 1 his blessed truth is to be told to every creature under heaven, irrespective of any and all distinctions imposed upon him by men. Christ is the accessible source of holy life for every creature, and the secret root from which every holy life is nourished. In Him dwells tbe fulness or totality of the Godhead bodily” (Col. 2:9), and this fulness of divine life is available for all. After presenting Christ as the hidden source of Spiritual life (Col. 1:27), Paul follows with the words, " Whom we preach, admonishing every man m all wis¬ dom, that we may present every hum perfect (full-grown) in Christ. ONENESS OF HEART AND SOUL AND WITH GOD What teaching in the Word of God outweighs, for satisfaction offered to the believer, that of the New Testament, our fellowship with God, our having all things in common with Him? John says, “But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another.” That is, fellowship-with God, and He with us. Everything that is God’s is ours, and everything that is ours is His. li e have nil lliini s in common. 1 his is ours in Jesus Christ. 1 his we believe to be one of the vital factors of that unity of the Spirit which we are exhorted to keep. Eph. 4:3. The secret of this fellowship is expressed in Acts 4:32, “The multitude of them that believed were of one heart and soul. 1 he failure, so-called, of “Communism” is the result of beginning at the wrong end trying to work backward. When there is mutual, full, possession, it will come not of law-compulsion, but of love’s constraint, tbe love of Christ constraining us. In Acts 2:41-47 the prime element is self-negation, “Letting each esteem others better than themselves”. THE MELTING POT IS EFFICIENT We have then convincing evidence of the efficiency of God s means in tbe fusing of His own; for the fire will melt and fuse bigoted separate nationalities, and the believer’s wealth cannot fail at any juncture. I here is nothing wrong with God’s Melting Pot (The Church which is His Body), but we are so hard to melt. “Have Thine own way, Lord, have Thine own way” is a joyful sound, melodious to the ear, but it must be transmuted into real life to bring joy to the heart of God. for unless it be so transmuted, it will remain " sounding brass and a clanging cymbal”. Interruptions along tbe way ought not to be discouragements, for nothing can possibly thwart the purpose of “the Church which is His body . Efje :%torj of 4tlj Conbcrsion anb Call Oi.oa Maonuson In every heart and life there is a conscious seeking for something that the world cannot give. Yet seldom is there a realization that only in Jesus Christ can the thirsty soul find its satisfaction. It was my privilege to be reared in a Christian home. My devoted Christian father’s innermost thought and intense prayers were for the salvation of his children. Well can 1 remember how consistently he would engage in prayer, daily, morning and evening. It gave me a desire and longing to be like father—to pray and live as he did. to carry that sweet smile and peaceful look that spoke of the hope and peace within. One night in a series of evangelistic meetings I felt that a decision had to be made. Prayers were made in my behalf, and 1 went home hoping all was well; yet, I could not comprehend the step 1 had taken. Shortly afterward I joined the church, for this, I knew, was the duty of a Christian. Five years pass ed by, during which 1 tried in my own strength to please the Heavenly Father, but my life seemed empty and a complete failure. That over¬ abounding joy, happiness and abiding peace which floods the soul of one walking in fellowship with the Saviour, was not mine. 1 was yet in a state of fear, for I real¬ ized that mine had been an empty profession and that I was lost. God in His infinite wisdom and love often uses severe measures in revealing Himself to the children of men. He saw fit to take our praying father from our midst to a better Home on high. All seemed gone. What was life now? Where could comfort lie found in those dark moments? My mother, although desirous of high ideals and concerned about the moral attainments in life, had not realized the spiritual needs of the human heart, and could not point to the one source of com¬ fort for which my heart longed. 1 determined to look into God’s promises that father had loved so much and meditated upon so often. There it was 1 found the treasure for which my heart had so long yearned, Peace! Jesus was the source. It flooded my soul to overflowing. Then came that blessed promise, “For I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day!” Father’s prayers had inspired in my heart a zeal for service. Now the fields, white unto the harvest, loomed up before me. Where were the workers? Oh, there were so few that would say “Yes” to the Master. 1 could see the teeming millions in the dark heathen lands who never had heard the Gospel nor shared the privilege I enjoyed. Could it be possible that He might use me in bringing the Bread of Life to them? Then I realized my lack in knowledge of the Word, and prayed earnestly that 1 might know more. God answered my prayer and opened up the way for me to attend Northwestern. It has been my privilege to spend three years at the Northwestern Bible School, to sit at the feet of the Master Teacher Himself, Jesus, and learn of Him. Gratitude and praise alone can be given to the Most High, who has planned my path and chosen my way. “His love hath placed my footsteps here.” Cfjc itlaster olbsinitfj An increasing usefulness in the Master’s service is only brought about when there is an accompanying progressive preparation. Nuggets of gold, as taken from the mine, are of great worth, but without the tempering and refining of the gold-worker their full value can never be realized. Each nugget has the possibility of being moulded, wrought, and drawn out because it possesses the qualities of malleability and ductility which make it adaptable. We are God’s nuggets. Christ came all the way from His heavenly home to this earth that He might by His death redeem us from the Enemy’s hands. Would Christ die for that which is worthless and of no value? Apart from Gods plan man becomes a curse, but God looked to the possibilities within and found a treasure, greater than that of gold, for which lie paid the price of heaven s Best. lust as the value of gold is increased by the working of the goldsmith, so we are tried and tested by God that we might be made conformable to His will. But before proceeding farther let us note the distinction between the temptations of the Adversary and the testing and chastenings of God. Often our Heavenly bather allows Satan to tempt us, but He always provides a way of escape and a means of turning impending evil to His glory and praise, even if He must use that evil as a rod of chastisement. The Devil tempts that we might fall and sin. God chastens that we may stand and resist sin. 1 be Enemy tempts that he may destroy our use¬ fulness and possibilities, but God tries us that our usefulness may be employed and every possibility be discovered. Now let us turn definitely to our Lord’s side and view the progressive prepara¬ tion of His servants that they may be of the utmost utility to Him. " God trieth the hearts.” Concerning this trial, in I Peter 1:6, 7, the apostle asserts that “the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appear¬ ing of Jesus Christ.” Yes, " God trieth the hearts.” Sometimes we are tried in the hottest furnaces, but even then, we, like the three Hebrew lads, will not be alone. Our Lord will be constantly at our side to protect and deliver us. He will not suffer us “to be tempted above that which we arc able, but will with every temptation make a way of escape.” Has He not said. “My grace is sufficient for thee? " " The crass is no! greater than His grace, The storm cannot hide His blessed face; I am satisfied to know That with Jesus here below, I can conquer every foe. " “Who is like unto the Lord our God?” In adoration let us meditate upon Him as the Master Goldsmith. May we visualize Him as He is working upon eternal souls, moulding them and beating them upon His great anvil according to His own plan that they may fit into His purpose of the ages. We are God’s nuggets! 3)nto Cfje Seep We are living in a day of superficiality and general indifference. Quite con¬ trary to this are the demands of a fruitful Christian life. God’s love is as vast and fathomless as a great ocean, but it is only as we launch out into its depths that our experience as Christians becomes real to us and worth while to others. Many stand upon the shoreline and gaze with wistful eyes over the deep, almost constrained to yield to the pleadings of the Saviour, hut they dare not venture. Others venture out into the shallow water and stay near the shore. These might be likened to nominal Christians. They arc not seeking the fulness of God but are floundering around in the cares and pleasures of this world, seeking to satisfy self and not God. Sorrow and affliction is their lot because they do not glorify God. They have not yielded their lives a “living sacrifice”, and the Holy Spirit is so busy working with them that He cannot work through them. God ' s answer is the very word that Jesus spoke to the disciples who had been fishing all night and caught nothing, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a draught.” The disciples immediately obeyed, and when they lifted the nets they were so full that they were broken with the burden of the fish enclosed. 1 he life that is wholly yielded to God’s love passes through just such an experi¬ ence. He meditates upon the Word of God daily; he spends many precious hours of fellowship and intercession in the place of prayer; his one desire is “to know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death.” His supreme joy and happiness is winning never-dying souls from the very brink of destruction, for which no sacrifice is counted too great. Such a life has, to some extent, personally realized the joy of the apostle Paul when he said, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” How blessed is the overflowing praise of a soulwinner’s heart! The world is full of nominal Christians who are in constant danger of the rocks and reefs along the shore. Let us ask ourselves personally, Am I in that class? Beware of the shoreline of indifference, the rocks of self, and the breakers of fleshly desire. The timid, in ignorance, stay near the greatest danger. Be brave! By faith launch out into the deep. Palliation Christ ’s work on the Cross stands forever as the only means of deliverance from eternal death and judgment. Every living individual is under the death penalty, for “the wages of sin is death " and “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”. Rom. 6:23; 3:23. The only way of escape is to accept Jesus Christ, the spotless Lamb of God who died in our place upon the Cross. Why reject Him longer? “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” Acts 16:31. Wii ) £fje |3octs IN THE SECRET OF HIS PRESENCE In the secret of His presence how my soul delights to hide! Oh. how precious are the lessons which 1 learn at Jesus’s side! Earthly cares can never vex me, neither trials lay me low; For when Satan comes to tempt me, to the secret place I go. When my soul is faint and thirsty, ’neath the shadow of His wing There is cool and pleasant shelter, and a fresh and crystal spring; And my Savior rests beside me, as we hold communion sweet: If I tried, I could not utter what He says when thus we meet. —Ellen Lakshmi Goreh ALL NEEDS MET Grace that never can be told, Flows for Jesus’ sake; No good thing does He withhold, Have we faith to take? Rise, my soul, begin to live, Free to ask, as He to give. A boundless store Waits the asking; W ant no more. —John H. Sri nmis PRAISE YE THE LORD Praise ye the Lord, ye teeming earth; Ye deeps, break into holy mirth; Ye vapors, (ire, and hail, and snow, And stormy wind, His power show. Mountains and hills and fruitful trees, And cedars, praise with all of these; All beasts and cattle, creeping things, And fowl that swiftly fly on wings. Young men and maidens, praise the Lord; Old men and children, praise accord; Let them all praise God’s holy name, Let them His majesty proclaim. His name alone is excellent. Who hath us every blessing sent; His glory reaches far above The earth and heaven of His love. —From " Peerless Poems of David the Hint " by Jane Copley THEN SHALL I KNOW Not till the loom is silent, And the shuttles cease to fly, Shall God unroll the canvas, And explain the reason why The dark threads are as needful, In the Weaver’s skilful hand, As the threads of gold and silver In the pattern He has planned. —Selected 1 itlission jJBanb “Go yc into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature”, is the motto of our Band. Many of our number have answered the command and have gone to the vast and dark regions across the sea. I lie Band is composed of active and affiliated members. The active member fully purposes to spend his life in service for the Master in some foreign land, while the affiliated member is vitally interested in foreign missions, but is not sure that is his field of labor. The aim of the Band is to arouse, maintain and extend missionary interest and to challenge the individual to a right response to the Lord’s command, “Go Ye!” This is done by presenting the need of the world, by stimulating definite prayer for missionaries, bv encouraging individual giving for missions, bv impressing the need of adequate preparation, by promoting correspondence with missionaries, by broaden¬ ing our vision of the mission field, by bringing returned missionaries before the students and by obtaining information of mission board requirements. At the weekly meetings we have been privileged to hear soul stirring messages from Nigeria, Belgian Congo, The Sudan, Japan, Egypt, China, and Africa. Once a month these meetings arc devoted to prayer for the missionaries on the field. Several prayer groups in the dormitories have reported blessed times in intercession for those on the firing line. Each year money is given toward the support of our most needy missionaries. The Band has been a blessing to every member and many, through its inspira¬ tion, have answered, “Here am I, Lord, send me.” $j| n | Mi WHw ■■■Hii FOCIR BLOCHS ' UORK.POBCHSPBIDTCB IS COOIfXS CD-SCHOOL _ £8flD-5CHO$L fellowship Hour STUPY HODR? 6LB0CJ ftOOO O’CLOCK FJG IM HealM CH€ mm coma pence i Ofl. 527 y,PLense.

The purpose of this Forum is to provide a medium of student expression on matters of interest to the entire student body, to promote voluntary spiritual and social activities, to provide a student cabinet, and to publish the school paper, “The Northwestern Pilot " . Jfrllotusfjip As each new class enters the school, its members naturally want to g et acquainted with others in the class and to strengthen the bond of class unity. In order to gratify this desire, one hour is set aside each week when the entire class may meet to con¬ duct the business of the class and to have a period of Christian fellowship. The program varies, but always Scripture is read and much time is spent in prayer. This establishes a tie that binds the members of the class throughout their lives. .

Enthusiasm waxes warm over the performances in the ' l . M. C. A. gymnasium, where boys have a regular class for setting up exercises, usualh en¬ gaging in a basket ball skirmish and an invigorating plunge in the pool. Winter has undeniable charm. With the Loring rink at their very doors, these young people, as might be expected, spend hours manipulating laces and straps, exercising their legs and their lungs as well, and keeping one particular bench in a state of perpetual occupation. Toboggans have allurements all their own and few Northwesterners can resist them, whereas sleigh-rides always receive an enthusiastic welcome. Spring means tennis. It also spells baseball and says hiking with unmistak¬ able distinctness. A tennis racquet and a bat are excellent antidotes for spring fever and help conscientious students to maintain mental balance. th € canevay auamtr BflGGflGG flPD ' WGS DJWCB?

Beginning with an autumn picnic at Glenwood Park, and ending with a grand closing outdoor festival at the home of our dean, Mr. Phillpotts, an entire school year makes possible many more occasions of fun and recreation, all of which fitly coincide with the season of the year. This school term has been an unusual one, for it seems that every gathering has been well attended, well planned, and original in every phase. Looking back to October tenth, the second Friday in our school year, we recollect the reception given to the Freshmen. This party was given by the Juniors and Seniors, and was held in Russell Dining Hall, this room being decorated in green, so as not to disappoint the highest anticipations of the new guests. Practically the entire student body and faculty members were present to witness the initiatory process that the Freshmen were compelled to go through, and it is with keen enjoyment that we remember how relieved they looked when they were finally given ice cream, mints, and wafers, and sent home. The greatest number of our parties are held in Russell Hall, for the conveni¬ ences and added accommodations which this building furnishes. However, we all like variety, so it remains a delightful epoch in past history when the boys at 6 South 11th Street dormitory entertained the girls. 1 his was a Halloween party, and gruesome enough to carry out the spirit of that night. Upon entering the hoys abode, the girls will long remember the escapade they had to go through from basement to attic of that mysterious-looking building, aided only by the ghostly figures along the dusky corridors. After closing the entertainment with an original program of musical numbers and readings, the guests were served ice cream and candied fruit in closed cartons, handed to them through a noisy “depository mech¬ anism” placed in an adjoining room. By again expressing our appreciation to the boys, we girls think they ought to be inspired to once more tax their entertaining abilities for our pleasure. Memorable events in this winter’s social activities, besides banquets and recep¬ tions at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and at the end of each month for those members of the school who had birthdays, were the outdoor skating parties at Lake of the Isles and Loring Park. Honorable mention should be awarded a number of students who met on Loring Rink at five o’clock one W ednesday morning, January sixth, to skate two hours before breakfast, and the continued persistence and en¬ durance of these same “Ice-hounds” throughout the entire skating season. Thus with a constant variety in social activities, from banquets, receptions, and parties, to tennis, skating, tobogganing, and out-door picnics, every Northwestern student is kept in excellent health and good spirits. 1 he best part is that our recre¬ ation is wholesome, every gathering strengthening the bond of fellowship, not only between the students themselves, but between the individual and God, due to the fact that devotional periods are always engaged in, in any social affair. 1 hus living in an environment where our joy in every sense is complete because we put Christ first, a Northwestern graduate possesses a training which is invaluable throughout an entire life’s experiences. Class $)ropljccj I had been studying Tanner’s English book for some time in preparation for English VI, and my eye lids dropped heavily. After unsuccessfully fighting sleep for a while, I seemed to be in room 216, ready for Miss Acomb to call roll. As each one called his number, a vision of his future Hashed through my mind. Ralph Ackman, number one, came first, and I saw him lying on the ground under the gospel car that he and Lloyd Comstock had been using for several years in their evangelistic work. As Ralph remedied the ailment, Lloyd was practicing the solo he was to sing that very night. There was Pearl Allain from the head of the matron’s table down in the Russell Hall dining room directing a look of stern rebuke at Joe Smith, Jr., who was passing his dish for a third helping of prunes. Marion Blake, in the rough clothes of a lumberman, with a suitcase in one hand and a Bible in the other, was trudging up a logging road toward a group of cabins. Sadie Bussc, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains was instructing a large class of young mountaineer girls from the open Bible. Associated with her in Bible School work were Drilla DuVall, Ruth Hofelman and Esther Comstock. The scenes about John Hein quite fulfilled my expectations. He was seated in a large office, busily proof-reading some articles for his religious periodical which was soon to be published. Vannie Pavnc was his assistant. Inda Johnson’s future was altogether fitting. With a small white apron over her blue checkered dress, she was dishing up chicken pie as she busily kept up a conver¬ sation with several women. The Ladies’ Aid was serving a chicken pie dinner in Stanley Anderson’s church. Leila Logan was conducting a class in sight reading in room 118. Alida Rich and Olga Magnuson were giving the demonstrative program of the Summer Bible School held in the Church of the Open Door, of which Oliver Enersen was pastor. In a conference of a Foreign Mission Board here at home, I saw our class well represented with missionaries on their furloughs from abroad. Joe Smith, of India, was giving an address on, “The Advantages of a Knowledge of Scientific Agriculture in Conjunction with Missions.” Ruth Campbell was there from China. Maynard Caneday, Bill Cook, Jennie Siemens and Stanley Kreidlcr, D. D., M. IX, Ph. IX, had each spent many years in the heart of Africa. A1 Swanson and wife were enthusiastic over their work among the Moslems. In the afternoon Miss Gladys Crossley was scheduled to tell of her work in Latin America. Maurice Powers was swinging an axe, chopping pine kindling for the fire in one of the churches of his mountain itinerary pastorate. Rexford Smart was urging a reluctant flivver over a rough wagon trail in Western Canada, toward a school house where several people were eagerly wait¬ ing his coming. Susie Stoesz was sweetly smiling over a spider full of spuds which she was tending as they fried. She seemed to be the happy queen of someone’s kitchen. Ruby Umsted was vehemently exhorting a group of country folk in a school house from John 14:7-14. 1 was suddenly aware of a pause. My number came next. I started violently, and a crash brought me hack to consciousness. 1 picked up my English book, brushed it off, and thoughtfully replaced it on the table. Class The Seniors of 1926 do hereby will, and formally declare, the following ad¬ mirable traits possessed by their various members, to he respectfully received by those to whom they have been bequeathed. All recipients arc requested to assimilate their new possessions carefully and cautiously, so as not to arouse the wrath of envious fellow-students who seem to have been neglected, and also to prevent too many appearances before the Scholarship committee, which, if true, would spell disaster for those who desire an “Aluminic” termination to their sojourn at Northwestern. Fortune thus claims you as her own: Maurice Powers reluctantly parts with his boisterous mannerisms to Ralph Erickson for future use in Analysis class. Pearl Allain, with many tears, wills her angelic disposition to Ruth Gauf. Rexford Smart willingly wills the whooping cough to Mabel(’s) Sparrow for use in the year 1927. Drilla Du Vail wills her punctuality and her unobstructed view of Dr. Foley to Evelyn Knaeble. Sadie Busse wills her perpetual spasms of laughter to Rosabelle Payton. Oliver Enersen. out of sheer necessity, wills his rank and standing at Stimson Ilall to Russell Olson. Inda Johnson, with a gasp, gives a goodly portion of her spontaneity to Henrietta Green. Evangeline Payne, endowed with a superabundant quantity of bursting enthusi¬ asm, wills a bottle of it to Hazel Zenor. Ruby Umsted, faithful to the end, gives her kittenish ways to Maymc Grove. Maynard Canedav, with a double portion of virtues, wills his Basso Profundo and his double dimple to John Patten. Esther Comstock, very demurely, leaves her winning ways and domestic air to Mary Lymburner. Jennie Siemens gives her responsibility in caring for her young brother to Jeanette Bruhns. Gladys Crosslcy, out of sympathy for the brethren, gives her notes on Medical Lectures to Bill Wcsenauer. Leila Logan bequeaths her smile that won’t come off to Uanitta Bates. Joe Smith, after viewing the high and mighty things at Northwestern for three years, gives Clifford Hovda a chance. Ruth Campbell gives a piece of her own mind to Gus Dahlberg. William Wescnauer bequeaths his good looks and his diploma to Bill Murk. After thus depriving our former estimable characters of these virtues, you ought to be mighty glad that school is over.

With hesitating footsteps, We entered Jackson Hall; The corridors re-echoed With greeting, laugh and call. We firmly clutched our room-mates, Smiled shyly at the Dean, Looked in our P. O. Boxes, And discovered 1 IS. Through these years of aspiration We have felt a conscious growth, And we here have been afforded Theory and practice, both. False illusions, misconceptions Have been weeded from our minds; We have learned the potent working Of the one great aim that binds. We have struggled, we have faltered, Some rash ardor we have lost. We have proven that each blessing Has its value-giving cost. Now those three years lie behind us, Once again the doors swing wide— We have learned to know and honor Class mates wc have walked beside. Old Northwestern holds a meaning Unexpressed by mortal word, And the feelings that we harbor None hut God has ever heard. Life extends unknown before us, On God ' s whitening fields we gaze. We have come, and all too quickly, To the parting of the ways. Aye! We launch with pulses heating,— May our bather give us grace To present a worthv record When we come before His face. CHC PRODUCT UHeN He HATH TR eD Me SHALL COMQ FORTH flS GOLD r -Be MG FRUITFUL IN eueRy GOOD UORK AND INCReAS A G IN THe KNOLJLeDGQ OF GOD? Cljc $)robuct We have come to the final stage of the analogy we arc presenting in this book. The Process in the Plant brings forth Products. The principal results that we sec arc those that appear in the practical work in which students engage. In the Bible classes, visitation, mission and hospital services, pastorates, and kindred avenues, students find an outlet for their energies, and expression of the truths they have been taught. These activ¬ ities are the proof of the effectiveness of the Process. When our school sends forth her graduates, they are finished Products in so far as Northwestern is concerned with them. They arc ready then to prove their worth on the home or foreign fields. “And He gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers, for the perfecting of the saints; unto the work of ministering, unto the building up of the body of Christ.” Eph. 4:11, 12. City Iacscuc iflissions “Come unto me all ye that are weary and heavy laden and I will give thee rest.” This message of our Lord is taken to the Union City, 29 Washington, Volunteers, and South Side Missions by four groups of students who conduct the entire service one evening each week. These meetings have resulted in the salvation of many souls and have proved a blessing to both students and hearers. unbap djool racfjing Sunday School teaching is the dominant, voluntary work of our school. Each week about sixty-five of our students teach classes. Many teach two classes each Sunday. Approximately six hundred persons in twenty-three churches are taught. Mr. Stixrood, Superintendent of the First Baptist Sunday School, said of the students, “Coming as they do from the atmosphere of the classroom where personal evangelism is stressed, where they hear daily the call of the fields white unto the harvest, they fit admirably into the program of our Sunday School.” pontes of fjcltcr “Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” has been proved true at the Homes of Shelter in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Many girls in these homes have been won to Christ and their lives transformed through public services and per¬ sonal testimony given by some of our students. Trusting in the promises “my word shall not return unto me void” and, when once they are saved, “no man shall pluck them out of my Father’s hand” the groups work and pray, knowing “that God giveth the increase.” iHusical itlinistn.’ Music touches the heart and prepares it to receive the Gospel message. Acting upon this conviction, two quartettes, a trio, and a saxophone quintette spent part of the summer combining the ministry of music with that of preaching. One group worked in Minnesota, one in Wisconsin, one in Iowa and Minnesota, and the fourth, traveling from Minneapolis to Portland, Oregon, south into Mexico, and hack through Arizona and Kansas, held services in thirteen states. All used music in their meetings with children and adults to enliven, enrich, and intensify their Bible study and evangelistic work. JBailp Vacation iBible :% rijools Sixtv-nine percent of the children and young people under twenty-five years of age in the United States are receiving no religious education at all. Realizing this, and the fact that Daily Vacation Bible Schools give practically twice the in¬ struction in two weeks that the average Sunday School gives in one year, one hundred and twenty-three students conducted last summer one hundred and forty- one schools, teaching 3,645 children. These schools were held, for the most part, in rural districts in Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Kansas, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota and Canada. The Bible was the text book; the aim, to instruct in the knowledge of the Truth unto the salvation of souls. ‘omilVi Cock Henckrick.b JWilber-i . lemens Kleven GS emens berO KpeicMer Giles Murk Frierson nort z Lricso ) HovolevnG tubcnt pastors “Preach the word” is sufficient command for the many students who feel def¬ initely called into the ministry. “He instant in season”, to them, means to he ready to preach at any time, even during the years of preparation. Vc arc debtors both to the Jews and Gentiles, but especially debtors to the churches in a number of towns adjacent to the Twin Cities. Occupying pulpits as regularly appointed pastors, as permanent supply preachers, as temporary supplies, or as evangelists, most of the young men of the upper classes learn to preach by preaching, and so render valuable service to the work of the Kingdom. (extension Department A new departure in school direction has been entered upon in the creation of our extension department. V The work of the extension department is that of establishing by direct persona! contact a more intimate acquaintance with those who already stand behind us in our educational outlook and program; to extend our boundaries and intensify our influence; to give first hand information about the school, its equipment, course of studies, achievements and needs; to render all the assistance possible to young people who feel called to definite Chris¬ tian work, and to place before our people the imperative necessity of special study of God’s Word and the doctrines of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Assistant PURPOSE The purpose of the Alumni Association is: l ' irst, to keep in touch with all who have been in the school, and second, to provide an organization through which the association can work for the good of the school. The strength and effectiveness of the Alumni Association is proven by the fact that it is, at the present time, in direct touch with all except sixteen of those gradu¬ ated from this institution in its entire history. I hese communications come to us from our representatives in various parts of seven foreign countries, as well as from almost every one of our United States. ACTIVITIES Northwestern has always fostered higher education, and we are happy to report that twenty-two alumni are continuing their studies at other institutions of learn¬ ing. Many of the young men are holding pastorates while taking their college or seminary course. The branches of Christian service to which our alumni have been called are many. Reports come from churches where our students, while pursuing secular voca¬ tions, are proving to be most effective Sunday School teachers, young people’s leaders and personal workers. The pastoral field has called a larger number than any other • V. single line of service. In Minnesota alone, twenty-three churches, embracing several denominations, are being served by Northwcsterncrs, and seventeen other charges in neighboring states are being successfully manned by our alumni. Three arc engaged as evangelists, and four are doing colportagc work. An enterprise initiated by Arthur Gorham. ' 25, is worthy of special mention— that of ministering to the deaf and dumb of Minneapolis. Mr. Gorham has learned the mute language, and at regular weekly meetings is telling these unfortunate people of the love of Christ. Seven of our young women arc serving as church secretaries, four as nurses, two as music teachers, three as Girls’ Rescue Home Workers, and ten arc teaching school. One is the Christian Endeavor secretary for the state of North Dakota. The number of home missionaries is rapidly increasing, there now being fourteen in Minnesota, two in Montana, and one in New Mexico. Of the thirty-one foreign missionaries, six arc stationed in Africa, ten are in China, one has gone to Canada, six were called to India, South America claimed five, two are in Japan, and one is laboring in Alaska. Irma Day, ' 24. and Gladys Lindholm, ' 25, left us within the past year to present the Savior in China, while Signc Johnson, ' 24, has just gone to Africa to spread the Gospel of Christ. HOME COMING “Back home to Alma Mater” proved to be the inspiration for a successful re¬ union, November 18, 1925. ' Flic morning was enjoyable spent in attending the regular classes, followed by luncheon and a business meeting at Russell Hall. At 6:00 o’clock, hearts were warmed and hunger satisfied at a delicious banquet in the famous antique chapel at 6 South. The climax of the day was the Gospel service at the Union City Mission. The Home Coming will doubtless he held in November of each year hereafter. itlisstons ' Thirty-two graduates of Northwest¬ ern are preaching the truth of this Chinese motto “Christ is Saviour” in Africa, South America, India, Japan, China, and Alaska. At home, eight students arc corresponding with various boards in regard to going to the field. There are also six boys and twenty-five girls enrolled in the Foreign Mission Band as active members who are defin¬ itely fitting themselves for foreign serv¬ ice. Many others have so yielded their lives that if the call comes, they too will go. Propinquity either enhances or de¬ tracts from the happiness of Christian associations. This is especially true on tlie foreign field where it is imperative that the one preparing to go be able to work with others. The character of our school, together with daily practice in living and working among individ¬ uals and churches of different types, admirably fits the student in this re¬ spect. i wiaaaw-J Oui fHiSSionatics These have said with Isaiah, “Here am I, Lord, send me,” and have laid their all on the altar for Him in the uttermost parts.

As prospective students, you will want some definite information in regard to the requirements of the school. The full course covers three or four years, depending upon the amount of previous educa¬ tion the student has had. The school year begins October 1st and ends June 1st. College graduates may finish the course in two years, High School graduates in three years, and those without High School will find four years necessary. A student working his way through school, unless he has exceptional ability, may find it ad¬ visable to take four years to complete the course. Entrance Requirements: Every applicant must meet the following requirements: He must be 17 years of age. He must have a satisfactory certificate of health, signed recently by his physician. He must have a successful vaccination. He must have an approved Christian character, willingness to work, to be taught, criticized and guided. Application blanks must be filled out and considered before students are admitted to the school. The blanks, accompanied by health certificate and vaccination certifi¬ cate, should be mailed to the school as early as possible before opening of the term. Whenever possible, students should present credits from former schools. Educational Requirements: Because we know the Lord does call into His service those who have been denied the privileges of education, and uses them in winning souls, no one who has felt the call will be refused admission because of lack of previous education. He will be given the opportunity to overcome those things which would handicap him in the Lord’s work by taking preparatory courses put into the curriculum for him. However, we advise preliminary training, at least to the extent of a High School education, for every student entering our Bible Training School. English Requirements: Graduates of recognized colleges and universities need take no English. Unless, however, they have one year’s college credit in Public Speaking, they must take Public Speaking. Those who have had two years of college work must take Senior English. High School graduates must take two years (Junior and Senior) of English. Those who are not High School graduates, but have had 1, 2 or 3 years of High School work, must take three years of English, while those with no High School work must take the addiitonal course in Pre¬ paratory English. The above requirements will apply to all who pass the required entrance exam¬ ination in English. Any student failing to pass this examination will be placed at the discretion of the English department. Expenses: Room and board is provided at $7.00 per week. There is a regis¬ tration fee of $7.50 a term, or $15.00 a year, for both resident students and those living outside the dormitories. Textbooks are provided by the students themselves, the English Bible being the fundamental textbook of the school. Students should have enough money to carry them through the first semester without outside work. They should bring with them a pillow, blankets, comforts, and towels, for their own use. The school furnishes and launders sheets, pillow cases and spreads. For further information or application blanks, men should write to Mr. H. B. Phillpotts, the Dean of Men, and the women to Miss Marie R. Acomb, Dean of Women, at 20 South 11 Street, Minneapolis, Minn. Upon the following pages you will find the various courses outlined. The basic course is the Bible course, which is varied to take care of the need of specialized work. Courses of tubp iBttile Course 1st Term Preparatory 1st Year 2nd Year 3rd Year Mrs. Hrs.

CN CM — CM I | m 3n Appreciation We offer our sincere thanks to Miss Marie Acomb for her personal interest and her invaluable assistance in editing this book, and to Mr. J. C. Buckbee for his generous cooperation. Jfaretuell Dear old Northwestern, we strive to voice the feelings in our hearts as we leave you, but we find no words to express them. It is even more difficult than we anticipated to bid you farewell; you have grown so dear to us. To you, our beloved instructors, we pay the honor and devotion you so abundantly merit. We know there are few such teachers as you have been to us,—men and women of true standards, experience in tbc Lord’s service and knowledge of holy living. We pay you our sincerest tribute and bid you farewell. It is hard to part with you, dear schoolmates. We have laughed and sung and prayed and labored side by side. Your lives have added much to ours and knowing you has been a privilege. Though we reach out, we do not cast aside our thoughts of you, but we earnestly covet your prayers as we cease not to entreat the Father for you. It is with the ex¬ pectation that you will soon join us in His world-wide fields that we say farewell. Helps On the Pages Where Needed The Scofield Reference Bible Edited by Rev. C. I. SCOFIELD, D.D.
