Our illustrations from the life of Christian in Bunyan ' s " Pilgrim ' s Progress " are not employed merely for decorative purposes, but fittingly set forth the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in transforming human lives.

Where the end is woe. " PROSPECTUS The SCROLL of 1928 has for its theme, " The Power of the Gospel. " This power has never been more bravely expressed than in the death of the Christian martyrs. Thus in the Scenic Sec¬ tion we have the Gospel ' s power vividly por¬ trayed under persecution. We have presented on the pages of our second division our faculty and school buildings. These, having grown to their present number and proportions from a very small beginning, set forth the power of the Gospel in vision and organization. The school life forms the subject for part three and brings the reader in touch with the student body at work and play. These students, having left their homes in obedience to the call of God, fitly illustrate the Gospel’s power by consecration. Finally, the closing section deals with our prac¬ tical work, where by word and picture we have sought to express the power of the Gospel by service. “He ' s clad with northern steel from top to toed ' " Strengthened with alt might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and long- suffering with joyfulness —COLOSSIANS 1:11.

B. Riley “Nevertheless, brethren t have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that ts given me of God. that l should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the Gospel of God. that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.” (Rom. 15:15, 16.) REACHING is the one profession of universal interest. The man who ' enters the law realizes that the interest taken in his profession will be limited, for the most part, to his clientage. The man who practices medicine excites an interest in his profession somewhat commensurate with the number of his patients. The one who takes it upon himself to teach touches the public more closely; but as a rule, excites the special interest of youth only. But to enter the pulpit is to face the whole public, Christian and non- Christian, church-going and non-church-going, educated and ignorant, rich and poor, old and young. By as much as religion is more important than science by as much as the moral law is more essential than the civil law by as much as the health of the soul is more to be desired than that of the body, by as much as character outweighs all else, by so much is it true, as the prophet of Bramwood said, “The issues of life and death for society are in the Christian pulpit. " Preaching was Christ s choice of a profession. When He came into the world to work its greatest good, to overthrow sin and set up righteousness, to end sorrow and introduce happiness to defeat Hell and populate Heaven, He passed over every other honorable calling and the many noble professions, and made a deliberate choice of preaching The very fact that Christ was a preacher, the very fact that He ordained preaching as the agency of the world s regenera¬ tion, accounts at once for the power of the pulpit and the interest the whole public takes in it. The appointment to the ministry is op God. Every prophet of the Old Testament claimed divine appointment; the same is recorded to the credit of every New Testament apostle. No man ever emphasized this Idea more than Paul. Not an epistle written by him but opens with the claim of appointment from God. Here again he reminds lbs brethren of the fact that be is found in the ministry because of the grace that was given him of God. Woe to the man who is otherwise commissioned! In Paul ' s case almost no time intervened between the hour of his salvation and the one in which the Spirit called him to preach; and yet they were two distinct experiences; and in the instance of many a minister have been separated the one from the other by months, and in some cases by many years. Russell Con well was at one time an attorney, and later a lecturer and reporter: but after years of such service, God s Spirit said " Come into the Gospel ministry, " and the faithful Christian was not disobedient to the heavenly voice, and those great Philadelphia institutions are his enduring monuments Philip, the evangelist, was not saved and set to the Gospel ministry in the same day At first he was a humble layman, differentiated from some of his brethren by the single fact that he was ' of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom ' Afterwards we find him a member of the diaconate in the old Firsi Church at Jerusalem; but as Page Seventeen soon as his brother, Stephen, having been stoned to death, was carried to his burial, God ' s Spirit seems to have called Philip to take up the work, and we read, " Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. " (Acts 8:5.) Peter, the fearless preacher, was only a plain fisherman disciple until he came to Pentecost, when the Holy Ghost called him out and made of him the chief spokesman. A dear call to the ministry by that same Spirit has ever been the needed anchor to those who preach Christ. James Stalker says, ' Enthusiasm for humanity is a noble passion and sheds a beautiful glow over the first efforts of an unselfish life, but it is hardly stern enough for the uses of the world, " " For the man who would minister to it. " he says, " a sterner motive is needed than love of men. Our retreating zeal needs to be rallied by the command of God.” The ministry that has God back of its appointment can scarcely fail of power. The purpose of such a ministry is sanctification, " That the offering up of the Gentile might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.” The instrument of sanctification is " the sword of the Spirit which is ‘ the Word of God The wielding of that sword is not the ministry of the professional only; but of all the people who love God. To see the convert from sin sanctified by the truth must be the consuming desire of every true under- shepherd. Those who are to be “our joy and our crown " at His coming are our care, our daily and deepest concern in the interim of His absence. If the teacher will do her best to get her students ready for the supervisor ' s visit, how great ought to be the concern of every true pastor to present to Christ a church sanctified by the Spirit. Scotland has produced some remarkable men: but as somebody has said, Tor large spiritual vision no one exceeded, if he equalled, Robert Murray M ' CheyneT the man who died in his early youth, but who before he went hence had moved the whole world to admire him, and by bis ministry had made the Son of God seem the more glorious. It is said that in a letter to his congre¬ gation during the severe sickness, he wrote, " I will never rest, nor give God rest, until He makes you a lamp that burncth—a city set on a hill that cannot be hid” Christ said, " Ye are the light of the world. " Christ commented pathetic¬ ally upon it, " If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness What is your life? Is it sanctified by the Spirit? Is it fruitful in all good works? Between the barren life of some professors and the abundant life of others there is all the difference between the barren desert and the luxuriant oasis. Dr. A, B. Simpson employed verse to express this thought: " Once " twas a painful trying, Now tis perfect trust: Once a half salvation, Now the uttermost. Once I hoped in Jesus, Now I know He ' s mine: Once my lamps were dying. Now they brightly shine. " Oh. to be made acceptable, being " sandtRed by the Holy G host. Oh. to so minister to men as to lead them into the very floods of divine favor! 1 hat was Paul ' s yearning over the Roman Christians. The glorying of the ministry is in Christ Jesus only. " have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain Page Eighteen Jo God , For which I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient by word and deed.” (Rom. 15:17,18.) We sing sometimes: “In the Cross of Christ glory, Towering o ' er the wrecks of time , All the light of sacred story. Gathers round its head sublime.” If wc glory in the Cross, as the symbol of our crucifixion to the old life, lei us glory in the Christ of the Cross as the One in whom we have our resurrec¬ tion from the grave, and by whom wc are made alive forever more. The more surely self is buried, the more certainly will Christ be exalted. It is related that Gounod once said to a young poet, “As you grow in your art you will judge the great masters of the past as I judged the great musicians of former times. At your age I used to say I! ' At twenty-five 1 said, I and Mozart At forty, ‘Mozart and 1 and now I say, ' Mozart ' Somebody traces a similar change in the Apostle Paul s conception. His first question after conversion was, “What must do?” (Acts 1 6:30.) Later He says, “That may . be found in Him.” (Phih 3:9.) A few years more of experience and he declares, “Christ liveth in me.” (Gal. 2:20.) 13ut as he ripened in experience and knowledge, be found out the truth, and boldly affirmed, “Christ is all. and in ali” (Col, 3:1 L) I was in that great Congress, or Parliament of Religions, in Chicago, when a Buddhist priest spoke and exalted his leader to an easy level with the Man from Nazareth. Dr, George C. Lorimcr was to follow. Uneasily did he wait his turn, and when at last it came, he blazed with such eloquence as I never heard from his lips on any other occasion. As he talked about Jesus the great audience realized that it was listening to “the sweetest name on mortal tongue ' and that beside Him all notable names paled as the moon fails at the rising of the sun, and as he went on paying his eloquent tributes, somebody in the audience sprang up and cried, “Three cheers for Jesus Christ 3“ and the leader of the orchestra and a thousand voices struck up instantly, " All hail the power of Jesus ' Name I” The enthusiasm was resistless! Men wept, their arms about one another ' s necks. Women with uplifted, radiant, and yet tear-stained faces, bore their tribute of love. And when the song was finished, the priest had disappeared. " There is none other name under heaven given among men . whereby we must be saved.” Nor is there another who can share with him the praises of the redeemed. ' 7 have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ.” Page Nineteen OUR SUPERINTENDENT If, during his lifetime, a man can by the foun¬ dation for a great work and not live to see the fruition of Ids dreams, men will write success across bis name. But what place of honor shall we give to Dr. Riley, the founder and superin¬ tendent of our school, who. during his life, not only laid the foundation of a great work but also brought the same to glorious fruition, there¬ by touching the ends of the earth with God s blessing ? His success has been due primarily to three prom¬ inent characteristics. First, he has built on the adamant rock of truth. Bacon has said, " No pleas¬ ure is comparable to the standing upon the vantage ground of truth. " We might add that when that truth is God ' s Word there isn’t a surer foundation or more secure defense for the man of purpose and vision. We thank God for Dr. Riley ' s ardent love of and faithful stand for the truth, because it has enabled us. as students, to receive a Christian train¬ ing without fear of being robbed of our faith in the process. Then his concentration to duty has resulted in the building of this great work which bears mute testi¬ mony to the power of God in a purposeful life. This has anchored his every ambition and brought him to the present climax of success. The third outstanding fea¬ ture is his moral courage. Dr, Riley’s fearlessness has repeated¬ ly inspired us to renewed confi¬ dence in his able leadership. Our drooping spirits have been re¬ vived as we have seen his in¬ domitable spirit carry him. in the face of great odds, through to victory for God. May our fellowship with him be unbroken until it is perpetu¬ ated and deepened at the coining of the Lord. Pti ge 7 ’ iven i y - orj e t cJ No face has become more familiar to us during our three years at North¬ western than has that of Mr. Moyer, dean of men and our class adviser, nor has any instructor found a larger place in our hearts. To him we are indebted in a large measure for a well-grounded, continuous growth in the knowledge of the Word, and consequently an ever-increasing faith in the One whose grace and glory it reveals. In spite of the pressure that rests upon him because of his manifold duties, his good-natured smile and calm, trustful attitude are evident on every occasion. Whether in the office, classroom, or pulpit, one thing we believe is true of the dean of men—he finds his enjoyment in the preaching of the Word and his satisfaction in the knowledge of the fact that by so doing he has fulfilled his obligation to God and man. Ai qv 7 centy-tico Mr. Robert L. Moyer, dean of men Page Twenty-three An attractive place is the office of Miss Acomb. the dean of women. Here the girls are welcomed at all times and given the counsel and friendship of one who understands. Many are the perplexing problems and difficulties which have been talked and prayed through here, ever mindful of the One who said, " If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask ol God . and it shall be given him ' It is under Miss Acomb ' s guidance that the two publications of the school, the Pilot , the monthly magazine issued by the students, and the Scroll, the school year book, are edited Efficiency and capability mark Miss Acomb as an executive, and as head of the departments of English and Public Speaking her duties are multiplied. She gives of her time and strength in untiring service and devotion to both students and school. Miss Marie R. Acomb, dean op women OFFICE on THE SCHOOL TREASURER. INSHT—MR, S. E, ROLL.

By Rev, R,|L. Moyer OD HAS but one way of saving men. It is through the gospel of Christ. The gospel is a channel through which the power of God flows to touch men and women unto salvation. This gospel is not the mere presenta¬ tion of an ideal, or the enunciation of a system of ethics, but, as Paul states elsewhere, “This is the gospel by which ye arc saved how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, and that he was buried and that he was raised again the third day according to the scriptures ' ' (I Cor, 15:1-4). “The preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which arc saved it is the power of God That power will save a man and enable him to live a Christian life. L Why the POWER OF God is NEEDED. The Gospel is “the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth: to the Jew first and also to the Greek. " This implies that the whole race needs salvation, Sin is universal and individual. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God " (Rom. 3:23). A certain Christian worker, in talking to a man about his soul, was met with this: “Oh. I ' m not so bad. I don ' t believe in a lot of these things you believe in. I believe that if I imitate Christ everything will be all right. " “Very well. " said the Christian, “I think you are right. Suppose we begin right here. He did not sin. Can you begin there?” The man looked at the Christian for a few seconds and then shook his head, “No. " “You can’t? Well then, my friend, what you need is a Savior ' None of us can begin there, so we all need salvation. We need salvation from the wrath of God. for “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men ’ (Rom. 1:18). We need salvation from the power of sin , for “Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin” (John 8:34). We need salvation from death and decay, for “Death passed upon all men " (Rom. 5:12). Every misery and woe of the human race springs from these three needs, and only the power of God can deliver us. Man is helpless and hopeless so far as his own salvation is concerned. In Romans 5:6 Paul says that we were “without strength. " Have you ever noticed that the attributes of the sinner are all negative? The sinner lacks something. He is a minus being. He is without strength, without hope, without God t without righteousness. He has nothing: so he deserves nothing. Left alone, there is no hope for the sinner. He must have a Savior. Then let us remember that while the attributes of the sinner are negative, the attributes of God are all positive. The sinner is weakness personi¬ fied, but God is omnipotence—He has all power: and the Gospel of Christ is “the power of God tin to salvation. " IL WHAT the power OP God ACCOMPLISHES. Salvation! This is one of the great words of Scripture, It includes the thought of deliverance to the fullest possible extent. It covers the past, the present, and the future of the believer. In the past it delivers from the penalty of sin—that is justification. Page Forty-two Man could not deliver himself from the wrath of God, since God is just: there¬ fore, God delivered His only begotten Son into the hands of justice, to bear that wrath in man ' s stead. " He was wounded for our transgressions ' In the present it delivers from the power of sin—that is sanctification. Man is too weak and sinful to live righteously, so God bestows upon the believer in the crucified and risen Christ, the Spirit, in order that " the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us ' In the future it delivers from the very presence of sin —that is glorification. Man can not get out of the grave with an incorruptible body, so God has provided for us the resurrection, through the coming again of the Victor over death and the grave. But it takes the power of God to accomplish all this. Nothing short ol the power of God can suffice to make one a Christian. III. WHEN THE POWER OF God is EFFECTIVE. " To every one that be lie vetb ' The very moment we believe. God changes us from sin to righteous¬ ness. Salvation does not come by service. You are not saved because you serve others. Salvation does not come by sacrifice. You may give your body to be burned, and still not be saved. Salvation does not come by self-denial. You may bestow all your goods to feed the poor, and still not be saved, Jesus Christ was not nailed to the cross, laid in a tomb, and raised from the dead in order that God might save every sinner who lived a perfect life t how could a sinner do this?} or who lived a life of service or sacrifice, but that God might save every one who believes. The writer spoke to a sinner some time ago, concerning salvation, trying to make plain to that sinner that Jesus Christ had suffered in his stead, that he might be saved, and chat the only condition of salvation was faith. The answer came, " Ah. that ' s too easy, " We told him that it was easy for the sinner, but that it was not easy for the Savior. No, the cross was not easy—no easier than hell would be for you. And now the only saving work that man can do is just believe God has set forth, in His Word, the facts that have to do with our salvation, through Christs work on the cross, and through His resurrection from the dead The sinner who comes face to face with these facts in the Word of God must cither believe them, or make God a liar, Dr. Chapman said that at one time in his experience he was having a little trouble with doubt, and said to Mr, Moody one day, that for some reason or other he could not seem to believe. Moody wheeled sharply around upon him, and said, " Whom can’t you believe? " And,Chapman saw the point. He bad been saying that " somehow " he could not believe God! But you can believe God. You can venture the destiny of your soul upon the Word of God. " Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou sbalt be saved. " " Out of my bondage, sorrow, and night. Into Thy freedom, gladness, and light; Out of my shameful failure and loss, Into the glorious gain of Thy Cross; Out of unrest and arrogant pride. Into Thy blessed will, to abide; Out of the fear and dread of the tomb, Into the joy and light of Thy home; Out of the depths of ruin untold. Ever Thy glorious face to behold. Jesus, I come to Thee " Page Fong-three ■J JUNIOR MOT T O " Study to show thyself approved unto God. a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. " —II TIMOTHY 2:15.

Louis Talbot Class Adviser CLASS COLORS PURPLE AND COLD CLASS FLOWER IRIS Pago Forty-four RECIOUS are the words of our Lord: ‘l am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life ' The Lord Jesus Christ is often set forth in the Scriptures as The Light. John speaks of Him as that True Light. There are many lights in the world, lights that would lead us away from Him. lights whose alluring gleam would direct us into paths of sin. But, though they may flame brightly through Life ' s brief day, they are not irue lights. They are false and deceiving, and leave but an aching void in the heart. They are lights that shed no radiance, which can never dispel the gloom and the darkness of sin. There is only One who can bring us from darkness into glorious light. 4 ‘The Lord, my God, will enlighten my darkness ' The Lord our God, He it is who bids the shadows flee away, and who ushers in the light of His own blessed presence. He is the true Light: in His light we see things as for eternity. Life lias a new aspect. The future holds new hope, With Him is the light of love, of peace, of joy, of sins forgiven: the light of perfect confidence and trust. Because in Him we have found hope for our despair, rejoicing for our sorrow, " beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for mourning, " and light for our darkness, He has become not only our Savior, our Lord, but our Inspiration as well. His love has redeemed us from sin. His love has won our hearts from the world. His love is the incentive that sends us forth to labor for Him. He who is the Light of the world is the inspiration of our lives. Again, the Scriptures tell us: “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light. " Not only is He our light, but we should shine as lights for Him , " Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. " To walk in the light and to walk as children of the light is our obligation. Our very walk, as believers, should glorify our Master, Only as we walk in His light can we have fellowship with Him. Only as we have fellowship with Him can our lives exhibit that fruit which shall glorify our Father. Only as we shed forth the radiance of His love and grace will we be able to turn men from death unto life. God forbid that there should be aught in our lives that will dim the brightness of His person, that will obscure the light of His blessed Word. The Apostle John wrote: “We know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. " That is the glorious hope and the glad assurance of every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. Looking unto that great consummation, the Class of 29 shall love Him, and labor lor Him who is our Inspiration, our Light, our Peace, our AIL Into our darkness The True Light hath shown: He banished sin ' s shadow, Made us His own. Now to men darkened In sin ' s deepest night, Wedl speak His redemption, Give forth His light.

You would fed sure that there was something wrong with him. You would feel like stop¬ ping him and asking if you might have the diamonds since he did not want them. And yet thousands of people in the world today are liter¬ ally throwing away the most precious jewels God has given to man. Moments that might shine forever in our diadem in Heaven are trampled heedlessly under foot, their value forever taken from them. At what little cost men reckon time, forgetting that their days arc numbered. Friends, how many moments have you thrown away, which if they were given to another might be counted as that many souls born into the Kingdom of Heaven? A life-time seems long to us as measured in months and years, but it will seem very short indeed as measured in the light of all eternity, I wonder if, when we appear before the throne and the books are opened, our record will read something like this: “A new day—twelve hours spent in work for him¬ self, but no work done for the Master: talked an hour to one who was unsaved but spoke no word of the Gospel to him: might have lent a hand to a weaker brother but passed by on the other side: sat at the bedside of a sick friend but never inquired about his soul: closed his eyes in sleep without a thought of those still out in darkness who needed bis prayers and needed his help Still the world rushes on, and we foolishly try to keep up with it, forget¬ ting In our haste that we are not of this world; taking no heed of the mission Christ gave us to perform, or of the hearts all over this world that arc hungering for news of salvation. Thus we go, throwing away the jewels of time, bright, sparkling seconds and costly moments, till the wealth we have thrown away far exceeds that which we yet hold in our hands. Not until we are left destitute of time, with only a few hours left to live, do we realize how empty our lives have been and how little worth we have purchased with the hours we have spent. Have you laid up for yourself treasures in Heaven " where moth and rust do not consume and where the thieves do not break in and steak ? Have you a bank account drawing interest in Heaven, or will you arrive there a pauper? So far 1 have been speaking of time in regard to our oicn interest, and now I would li ke to ask, arc we redeeming the time as measured by God ' s interest? Wc, who are Christians, have been bought with a price—a price which you or I can never repay. Are we accepting that gift and giving Him nothing in return? The very least wc can do is to tell of His love to others and to spend our time in the building up of His Kingdom. Arc we walking in wisdom toward them that are without? Are we living the words of Paul, " And whatsoever ye do r do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men ’ So might we, the class of ' 30, hide the Word of God in our hearts, and yet redeem the time during our next two years at Northwestern and after we launch out into full-time service for our Lord and Master. " Redeeming the time, because the days are evil " “AS IT IS” SYNOPSIS A lively three-act play presented by the Northwestern Bible School , under the direction of Dr, Riley , Miss Acomb.

' —Collosians 2:6-7. ROW I I I is Nature ' s law and God ' s plan. We expect every child that is born Into the world, with the proper nourishment and care, to grow up to stalwart manhood and usefulness. God has every bit as much reason to expect that the one whom He has redeemed at such a tremen¬ dous cost will manifest a marked growth in grace. Many of us came to Northwestern as ' babes ' ’ in Christ, with prac¬ tically no background of Christian experience, and we cannot but believe that the Lord led us to such a place as this that we might be nourished properly from the very start. During those first few weeks when we were given our first real taste ol spiritual food, how eagerly we drank of the " sincere milk of the Word. " And then as time went on, we became strong enough to exchange our diet of milk for food of more substantial character; but from the same spiritual larder—the Word of God. It is wonderful what progress one makes in his spiritual life when every¬ thing is conducive to growth and development. There are many who have " received Christ Jesus the Lord. " but who never pass beyond the infancy stage of Christian experience, simply because they never find the proper environment. What the gentle rains of spring and the warm sunlight of early summer are to the newly planted seed, Northwestern was to us when first we came to her. She furnished the necessary warmth of spiritual atmosphere to stimulate in us a steady progress toward maturity. Thus the first year at Bible School passed by all too quickly, and left us with an opportunity to minister to others during the summer vacation some degree of the blessings we had received, but with an ever-increasing desire ourselves to return when the fall term should open. The second year at school was even more fraught with continued benedic¬ tion. Our spiritual eyes had been opened, and now by the Holy Spirit ' s constant illumination, we began to see things for ourselves. One who has never experi¬ enced it, cannot know the inward exhilarating joy that comes to one with the opening of some great spiritual truth. Many a time have we gone to our rooms after a class period, and there on our knees poured out our hearts to God in gratitude for His matchless grace and love. A true heart experience is bound to manifest itself to the world: it will sooner or later find expression in words. It is to make possible and helpful just such opportunities for testimony that the fellowship hour is observed each eve¬ ning, both at the young men ' s and young women ' s dormitories, God only knows how far-reaching has been the effect of these little group gatherings, and how many have been the souls brought out of darkness into light because of the prayers that have there ascended to the Throne of Grace If it would not seem as though we were adding superlative to absolute, we should be tempted to affirm that our last year at Northwestern has been the richest in blessing of any. Not until one begins to see the door of service and responsibility opening before him. does he begin to fully appreciate the value of the truth that is daily presented to him. After three short, but blessed, years at Northwestern Bible and Missionary I raining School, with one voice we can testify to this fact: we have come to know Him better, and knowing Him, have learned to love Him more.

Just adjacent to the dormitories is the beautiful Loring Park, where many of the students begin the day with a brisk walk around the lake before breakfast. This park has been the scene of many a skating party. Here, too, the students vie for the honors in tennis and kit ten-balk Oni boys’ basket-ball team, coached by Mr. Day, of the First Baptist Church, has competed this year with several of the Twin City academies, high schools, and athletic clubs, I hese games provide fun, mental diversion, physical refreshment, as well as stimulate loyalty to Northwestern and friendly contact with other schools. 1 he young men employ the swimming pool at the Y. M, C. A. as another means of expending their superfluous energy. The two picnics, for the whole student body, one in the spring, and the other in the fall, are among the high spots in the year ' s outdoor activities. The day is crammed lull of various contests, creating a wholesome competition between the classes. All in all, we believe that if the student takes advantage of the opportuni¬ ties which are afforded him. he will find them sufllcienl for all the recreation necessary to his fullest development. Page fifty-four MUSIC Honor and praise to thee, our dear Northwestern, Come raise our voices and hearts in loyalty. Standing by night and day for Christ our Rock and stay Always a beacon ray for Christ, our King! Christ lias revealed to us God ' s love unbounded. He who has called us by infinite grace. From North.

Sweet are the memories of thee, Northwestern, Dear to our hearts are the years we have spent. Learning of Christ each day, Who is our hope and stay, Gladly we will obey our Lord and King! |FT TIMES the melody of this, our school song, resounds as we sing of the school we love. Music occupies a large place in the hearts of all, and, besides the time given to regular music instruction, one chapel period each week is devoted to special musical numbers. The double quartet of men and the several quartets of men and women have been a real blessing to those who have listened to them. he octette of girls sing the gospel in a wonderful way. Instrumental numbers upon the piano trombone, cornet, and saxophone have also been heard at various times. 1 he students have served in a musical way in churches in and about the T win Cities. Each Sunday afternoon during the winter months over radio station WRHM Dr. Riley has broadcast Bible expositions. He has been assisted in this service with musical numbers given by students of the school. A regular part of the curriculum is the chorus work under the direction of Mr. George C, Krieger, leader of the choir of the First Baptist Church and super¬ visor of music in the West High School. He has taught us to see the real beauty and message of gospel songs, and his happy manner and Christian character have been an inspiration to us. In addition to the general chorus work, glee dubs have been organized, the men ' s club, numbering thirty-two members, and the girls’ club, thirty-six. Music has been realized as one of the important factors of Christian work and worship and it has found its place in Northwestern. Its influence upon life is manifold, and with the Sweet Singer of Israel we say: " It is good to sing praises unto out God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely, " Page Fitly-five “Now, unto him that is able . , according to the power that worketh in us.” —Ephesians 3:20. “Let Ignorance no W muse on ivhat is said and let him not refuse good counsel to embrace ' jri 5 S 5 .“-’£ 2 “ ' .Sf. f MAY 13 !

They are privileged to put into practical use their knowledge of the 3 ord of God, because each has at least one practical work assignment every week, we shall attempt in the following pages to give you a glimpse of the work accorn- plished by the young men and women of Northwestern. During this school year, about 40 students taught Sunday School classes, 60 conducted services in four different rescue missions; 50 worked in three different hospitals, singing, distributing Christian literature, and doing personal work; ten conducted six Bible classes in Minneapolis homes: and 16 held pastorates in various parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin. A majority ol the students do more than that which is assigned to them, so the work done necessarily exceeds the figures given. Every year during the summer months a large number of the student body devote their time to Vacation Bible School work. 4 he general report of last summer ' s activities is as follows: 95 students conducted 110 Bible schools in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Saskatchewan, Canada; 98 local helpers aided them in one way or another, The total number of boys and girls enrolled was 4.050, which represented 19 denominations; 1,275 homes were visited, and 185 evening evangelistic meetings held. From this work 357 conversions were reported, 306 from the Bible schools, and 51 from the evening services. In addition to this, many students held summer pastorates. Others, who found it necessary to work or help at home during the summer, assisted in their local churches. An Indian home in north urn Minnesota Page fifty-seven VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL In preparation for Daily Vacation Bible School work, a week ' s institute is held at Northwestern to equip the students lor efficient service. By this method numerous neglected communities of the Northwestern States and Canada are reached every summer. One student writes; ' On one field, I visited a home where the mother was not in favor of having her children attend Sunday School. However, her ten-year-old gir] came the first day. The girl returned the next day with her four-year-old brother. Roth attended regularly and were instrumental in bring¬ ing their parents to the evening services. The parents later testified that the Bible school had done more for both them and their children than any church ' The largest school held by Northwestern students was at the Bethel Home. Duluth. Minn, (picture shown above). The enrolment was 225. It was said to be the best in the city, and urgent requests have been made that the same workers return. Testimonies have been received from grateful people in regard to vacation work, one of which we will publish: " 1 am writing this to inform you of the splendid work which has been done on the field here by the two young men you sent. Their efforts were richly rewarded by God. and they will long be remem¬ bered by the people in the communities in which they worked ' 1 niNWLSCTA CAM AOA Page Fifty-eight WISCONSIN NORTH DAKOTA BIBLE CLASSES Both children and adults prove their eagerness to know more of God ' s Word by attending the week- night Bible classes held by Northwestern students in different homes throughout the city. In one home a group of seventy meet once a week for chorus singing, object lessons, prayer, and Bible study. This group is divided into several classes, one of which has located this convenient " class room gallery " on the stair steps. Page Fifty-nine BOYS 1 CLUB One of our young men has charge of a boys ' club, under the auspices ol the Y. M. C A. This work has been very interesting and fruitful, as wit¬ nessed by the fact that one night sev¬ eral boys gave up their " gym " period to talk with their leader about accept¬ ing Christ.

STUDENT PASTORS Sixteen young men go out each week to serve as pastors of churches. To them is afforded a unique opportunity of service for Christ. Some churches, previously closed, have been opened and firmly established by our students. On one field this past year the attendance of both the prayer meeting and Sunday School has more than doubled. The church congregation and interest has likewise grown, which makes the outlook for the future very bright. Another student pastor has been used ol God in overcrowding his small church building with a Sunday School numbering about ninety. The building will only seat fifty people comfortably. At the regular church services the church is well filled, but plans arc being made for erecting a larger structure. STUDENT PASTORATES HOSPITAL WORK Perhaps no greater blessing is connected with any phase of Practical Work than that of hospital visitation. Every week the school sends out three groups of students to as many hospitals, two of which are in the city and the third about twenty miles out. It is their blessed privilege to minister to those whose hearts have been made receptive by suffering, and often their joy to lead them to the Lord. RESCUE MISSIONS In our work at the missions we are glad to be able to present the Christ who can meet the needs of all mankind. One of our students, while doing personal work, learned that he was talking to a man who at one time was a prominent banker. After several misfortunes this banker, in despair, had tried to end his life The student pointed him to the Son of God who reaches down to save and help just such as he. He left the mission that night a saved man. Life held new hope for him. AMONG THE DEAF One of our senior girls, who is partially deaf, has learned that affliction may prove to be an open door to opportunity, A member of her class writes: " In testimony to the gospel meetings among the deaf, under the leadership of Miss Turner, I can say I have seen the blessings of the Lord. They prove to me that we are going on to glory. " Page Sixty-one MUSICAL ACTIVITIES The quartet, whose picture is shown above, has sung extensively in Minne¬ apolis and Sr Paul at chinch services and for other special occasions, The Gospel message can be effectively presented by song. This is the purpose of Northwest¬ ern students who sing at churches, hospitals, missions, funeral services, and at Bible classes. Many people whose hearts are closed to the sermon, are reached through Gospel music. VISITATION The picture on the opening page of this section makes us believe that the home is an ideal place to do Christian work. Many do not attend church services, but they will welcome you when they know you care for them enough to go to them. Because of this feeling, the Indians on the White Earth Reserva¬ tion welcomed one of our boys who brought them the Gospel of Christ last summer. EVANGELISTIC WORK Some of the young men spend the summer months doing evangelistic work. The student shown in the picture spent the summer in Bisbee, Arizona, Besides being assistant pastor of the Baptist church there, he acted as captain of three evangelistic bands composed of over eighty young people. Each of these young people held a Gospel service in the neighboring towns and communities three nights a week. Page Sixty -two 3N.

Its members, affiliated active, and honorary, arc those interested in furthering missions, those dedicated to foreign work, and those active in foreign fields who have been members of our band. Our deputation teams spread enthusiasm for missions in churches open to us. Despite the fact that most of our students are working their way through school, our financial gilts for the support of missionaries amounts to about $900.00 this year. New to our band is the organization of prayer groups. The student body is divided into groups which meet every two weeks for prayer, each group Liking one particular country. We believe that concentrated prayer will prove a power to break down the barriers that confront our missionaries. Already these prayer meetings have been such a blessing that wc hope they will become a permanent institution. We have received many inspiring messages from missionaries. The most convincing characteristics of their messages arc: The direct command of God to “GOT the contrasting needs of the foreign and home fields: the joyfulness of sacrificial service: and the Lord ' s imminent return, OUR AIMS To present the need of the world to others. To stimulate definite prayer for missions. To encourage individual giving to missions. To impress the need of adequate preparation. To promote correspondence with missionaries To broaden our view of the mission fields. To bring returned missionaries before the students. To obtain information concerning mission board requirements. MISSIONS THE HUMAN HARVEST HE FIELDS arc white already to harvest” (John 4:35). “The laborers are few” (Matt. 9:37). These words were an attempt on the part of our Lord Jesus Christ to broaden the vision of His self-centered disciples. As long as He has disciples. His words retain their original value and broadening effect. To those who think otherwise, Christ meant to say: GOD ' S OBJECTIVE IS MANKIND Man ' s harvests are fields of grain: God ' s harvest is the souls of men Their comparative value was shown by Christ’s death on the cross for sinners. Their corresponding need is expressed by the word white, an over-ripened condition which demands immediate attention. God ' s field is still the world. (Matt I 3:38.) Still over half the world has never heard that Christ died for their sins. Christ committed the work of reconciliation to redeemed man. GODS MEDIUM IS MAN Modern delevopment cries for methods: Christianity s advancement demands men. " Every great forward movement for Christianity down through the ages is but the lengthening shadow ol a man " -—a Christian man, a yielded man. God s contact with the heathen depends upon every individual who has taken his stand for Christ. Is your business keeping you from filling the gap? If your business is not God ' s business, you should give it up. Surely you are not too busy to pray or too poor to give. Christianity spells responsibility ; indifference, disaster. " Uttermost parts is His order. Dare any answer no? What will you do when you meet Him If you refuse to go? " Go, go. go, go. Leave what He asks you to leave; Pray for your part in the harvest; Give what He asks you to give.

Mr, and Mrs. Roscnau, from Ft. Sibut, Africa, write: “Last Sunday, after the morning service, a young man stepped up to me with a small lad about ten years of age, and said. This boy is not treating his father right. ' What has he done? 1 asked. ” ' Well, last week his father killed an animal and brought ibe meat home, and, after offering it to Gakoura (one of the deities which the natives worship), he gave some to the boy. but he refused to eat it. and that hurt the father ' s heart much,’ ' I then read to him from I Gorin- thians 8, to show him what the Word of God had to say about things offered io idols. This boy was converted only about two weeks before and was liv¬ ing up to this Scriptural injunction without having heard that portion of Scripture before. 1 ' Again, this message comes from Mr. and Mrs. Rosenau: " We arc glad to let you know that the interest in the Gospel, which we spoke of in our last letter, has not decreased at all. When two of our Christians were in the village a few days ago, examining candidates for baptism, the chief of the village came to them and said he had a |ucsttmi he wished to ask them. He said, ‘1 would like to know if that which the young people of my village are telling me is true. Whenever l want to have a dance they refuse to come. They say they have heard and believed the Word of God, so they do not dance or drink any more. They say that they now find their joy in worshipping God and do not desire those things any more because they cannot bring peace to their hearts,’ ' To this one of them replied, ' It: is true. 1 used to dance and drink just like you. but when I believed on the Son of God, the Holy Spirit came into my heart and showed me the folly of these things and has given me a hatred for them.” " It was hitherto unknown here for a village to stop its dances. The most striking thing about this incident is that it is only a few months since we knew of the first convert from this village.” Gladys Lind holm writes, from China: ”In Kobe, fifteen of our party took rickshaws (modern automobiles of Japan and China) , and went through the city and up to the mountain. We saw many amusing things and also many things that were sad to look upon. Everywhere there arc temples. One large Chin to temple was half way up the mountain. At the entrance was tied a bell, which the worshippers lang on entering, so the gods would know they were praying. The mouths of the idols were filled with rice which the people had offered. The (loor was also covered with rice, One runner who came up to the temple with us, shook the bell, then bowed so very reverently and, going down the steps, he turned around twice and bowed toward tile temple. It was .ill so sad. One of our party spoke to him and said. ' These gods can not hear, see, or speak. We have a God who hears us. sees us. and speaks to us. We know the true God, who loves you and gave His Son to die for you.’ He simply answered, 1 do not know. ' How true it is: they do not know. He expressed the condition of his people.” IN THE HOMELAND HE LORD ' S promise that His Word shall not return unto Him void has seen fulfillment many times by Northwestern students, and has been a source of encouragement and blessing to them. In considering missions, we would not neglect the work in the many needy sections of our own land, where some of our students are laboring, for we feel that in our Lord’s sight there are no “foreign’ ' s, but the whole world is one large mission field, A number of our graduates in the homeland are doing a marvelous work and sacrificing as much as those who go to more distant fields of labor. Some are working in the woods of northern Minnesota, others in Montana, North Dakota, and Canada, as Sunday School workers, missionaries, pastors, and evangelists. 1 he chief aim of all is to bring the Word to waiting hearts. We have heard so many interesting reports which we would like to relate, but space does not permit our rehearsing them all, so we cite just a few incidents that will give an idea of the type and scope of the work our students are doing in the homeland. One of our last year ' s graduates is working in a very poor Italian district in Buffalo, New York, She, with her co-la borers, has a small mission station where the Sunday School and preaching services are held, and Bible classes during the week. The people live in very unsanitary conditions. They are ignorant and illiterate, are steeped in Catholicism, and are difficult to deal with. But the Lord is able to open their hearts, so the missionaries labor faithfully on. They reach a large number of the children through the school and some of the mothers through visitation. Our worker there writes: “Almost all of the homes are three stories high, and very often we find three families on a floor. Some of the houses are quite clean, and some arc terrible. It is interesting to watch the children eat their noon lunch. They conic in, grab a chunk of home-made bread, and run out in the street to play. Someone will build a fire near the sidewalk, and many will gather there to keep warm, for the homes are often cold. Poor little youngsters, they certainly need the Lord Jesus Christ. " Another home missionary writes, telling of the wonderful results they are having in northern Minnesota, in their Bible study classes and their visita¬ tion work. I wo young men have been saved and have gone into definite Christian service, and there is the prospect of a third. People walk for miles to come to the meetings. A father and mother of fourteen children walked six miles to get a ride to the service. They rode back the same way and walked the six miles home again. Still another tells of the new territory they are constantly opening up, and how they are planning, hoping, and praying for great activities this summer, A girls ' club, the worker has organized, meets every week for prayer and Bible study. Several of the girls have been saved, and others brought into a closer contact with the Lord and learned the blessing of taking everything to Him in prayer, even the small problems of school life. Many similar testimonies could be given, but these show how the Word of God, as proclaimed by Northwestern students, finds lodging in the hearts of men and women. We pray that others may be led into active service for Him. Page Sixty-seven SOUTH AMERICA One-quarter of the population of South America remains, to this day, practically pagan. The greatest stretch of unevangel¬ ized territory in the world lies in the center of South America, includ¬ ing the interior of Brazil, Venezuel a. Colombia. Ecua - dor. Peru, Bolivia, and Para¬ guay. in northern Brazil there are seven states with populations ranging from that of Maine to that ol New Jersey, without one missionary. South America has been called the land of opportunity. These are in¬ deed descriptive words, for this coun¬ try is seeing a new industrial era: a new open-mindedness and seeking after God; a dispelling of old super¬ stitions and a desire for something that satisfies their hungry hearts. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only thing that can meet this need of our sister continent. Six of our graduates are faithfully laboring here to carry the living Word to dying souls. One of them writes: ' The other day while distributing tracts, I came to a home where an elderly woman was sitting on the porch, with a paring knife in one hand and a spoon in the other, which she had just finished cutting from a large gourd. She held out the spoon and said, J have the kettle, the water, and the spoon, but I lack the beans. I his opened an opportunity to show her how typical this was of her own spiritual condition. They have their churches, priests, ceremonies, and much more, but they lack the essential thing—the Bread of Life ' This missionary has given a good description of the state of the people. Since the world war, they have begun a new search after God. casting aside their old theories of life. Coupled with this new yearning for things spiritual is a desire for closer friendship with the United States. All these things assure victory, if we would only see it and grasp our opportunity NOW, 1. Gronoco River mi sionjrics. 2. A native evangelist. 3.

The words “Oppor¬ tunity " and “Urgency " are written in large letters over these lands. The two great obstacles to overcome arc Judaism and Islam, but the messenger of God is able to break down the strongholds of Satan and free those shackled in unbelief. The Far East consists of China, Japan, Korea, French In do-China, Siam. India, with a combined population of about nine million, The debased condi¬ tion that women arc forced to accept, the devil-designed caste system, and the corrupt forms of worship, give to us a bird ' s-eye view of the conditions in the Far East, The Heart of Asia is an area, four thousand miles long and fifteen hundred miles wide, which still lies in heathen darkness. There we find Tibet, where the prevailing religion is Taoism, a corrupt form of Buddhism: Afghanistan, known as being one of the darkest places on earth: Mongolia, with its gross supersti¬ tions; Chinese Turkistan, with its crying need for missionary work: Baluchistan, with its hellish social, moral, and religious conditions; Nepal and Bhutan, which arc yet without a missionary, and Russian Turkistan with its fiiteen million population and scores of illiterates.

Would you turn aside, While they gasped and died And leave them to their pain? " What if your own were prisoned. Far in a hostile land And the only key To .set them free Held in your safe command? Would you breathe free air. While they stifled there, And wait, and hold your hand? " Yet, what else are you doing, Oh. ye by Christ made free, If you’ll not tell What you know so well To those across the sea, Who have never heard One tender word Of the Lamb of Calvary?

By JAMES BAXTER [ ' Hi? writing of ihii .iruck is .un-ndi ' J by ihi 1 sole i!«ir; lo show the grace .ind mercy of God in i!ie life of ihr writer,] WAS BORN in the village of Reddingmuirhead, Stirlingshire, Scotland, on March 7, 1901. My mother came from a home where God ' s name was loved and reverenced by the daily reading of His Word and family prayers. Though this good custom did not begin in our home till later years when mother was saved, we children were taught to render similar reverence for the worship of God and the reading of His Word, father was a miner, and his work, in addition to being poorly paid, was both difficult and dangerous, so 1 learned quite early in life something of the struggle these underground workers had to endure in order to make a living for their wives and children. Our family was no exception to these difficult circumstances. There were five children to provide for. three girls, and two boys; I was the younger of the two boys and the second youngest of the five. Save for my dislike for school, and distaste for study, I was very happy In my early life. Sorrow, however, broke in on this happiness and left a lasting impression on my mind. About this time my father was taken seriously sick and confined to bed in failing health. Although he was under the care of a competent physician, he gradually declined till there was no hope of his recovery. He passed away to be with the Lord in full assurance of eternal life and with the Savior ' s name on his lips. Mother was prostrate with grief at this loss, but for the sake of the children she rallied her waning courage to meet the battle before her. Not many months elapsed till my brother. Harry, took sick, and in a few months death claimed his life and took the second loved one from our midst, to be with the Lord. Wc were just recovering from this fresh sorrow, and mother was taking new hope again, when, to our dismay, Annie, the third oldest, took seriously sick and passed away, after a brief illness. Her passing to be with the precious Lord recalls to my mind the words my mother spoke to me ar her bedside. I entered her room and tiptoed to her side, looked at the pale face on the pillow and then into my mother ' s. The tears were making their way unheeded down her face as she whispered in answer to my questioning look, " She ' s crossing the Jordan. " My heart goes up in thanks to the Lord that through the death of His own Son He has made such death-bed scenes possible. 1 cannot tell what deep mental agony my mother endured under these afflictions. She seemed to be filled with fearful apprenhensions as she looked at the three children left as if wondering which one would be taken next. One Sunday afternoon, when Mother had recovered sufficient strength, she and I went to visit the graves of the loved ones so recently laid to rest. The first sight of the graveyard opened up these wounds in her heart afresh. All that had happened in the past eighteen months was crowded into that brief moment, and she collapsed on the grave in a soul agony and bitter grief. 1 can never forget that scene, and though sad to me then, I never remember it now without rejoicing that such scenes of sadness shall be turned into scenes of joy at our blessed Lord ' s return. And Hcfs coming soon! Mother never really recovered. An expression of sadness, speaking of inward sorrow, marked the lines of her face and even lingered there when an occasional smile sought to chase the cloud away. Within six months she had gone to be with those she loved in glory, and to enter into her eternal rest, Before she died she called me to her bedside, and, after telling me, as only a Page SeCi-nty-tiCo ' 28 S K R r-h mother could, that she was going to meet her Savior, she said, " You’ll be a guid laddie, won ' t you, and meet me in heaven some day, " 1 promised her that 1 would, and left her side in tears. The recollection of that scene touches the deepest emotions of my heart, and 1 thank the Lord that my promise to her has time and again saved me from going into a life of deep sin, and brought me to think seriously on the things of eternity There were only three of us left, but my oldest sister, Agnes, was the only one capable of self-support. It was. therefore, deemed advisable to send my younger sister, Mary, and me to the Bridge of Weir Orphan Homes, till such time as we could work for ourselves. 1 had now grown to be eleven years of age, and Mary was three years my junior. I was fifteen years old when I left the protecting walls of the Homes, to try the outside world for myself, I returned to the old home again, and very soon found employment in an engineering shop. My work brought me into contact with other young men, most of whom were ungodly, and I very soon fell into their ways and habits, which were all of the world. For three years I flitted with the pleasures of a gay world, only to find at the end of that time that there was nothing of lasting value in its attractions. I first began to have serious thoughts about my soul when the life of one I had grown to love impressed me with the sweetness and beauty of the Christian graces. Going home one night from church. I went to my bedroom and settled the question of my salvation alone with God, Following this I began to witness for my Lord, an experience which brought much joy into my Christian life A few years later I found that the after effects of the war on British trade made another move on my part imperative, as I was scarcely making a living. Canada suggested itself, and after communication with my relatives in Toronto, Ontario, I sailed for Canada, accompanied by my unde, on October 6, 1922. Eight months ' residence there didn’t seem to better my condition any as far as work was concerned. Added to this, was the discomfort of homesickness that refused to leave me Though these were dark days the experience resulted in my discontinuing the smoking habit, gaining a victory for the Lord, On May 2, 1923, 1 left Toronto for Davenport. Iowa, where I found suitable employment, while residing with my mother ' s cousin. During my residence there I was providentially led to labor in a gospel church, and in the course of time 1 consecrated my life to God ' s service Tins was followed by a dear call to the ministry. As a result of that consecration I entered the Northwestern Bible School three years ago, to train for the ministry. The Lord has blessed me in the deci¬ sion 1 made to put Him first, and I have never regretted the step. He has pros¬ pered me in a financial way so that I have been able to visit my home during the vacation of my junior year. 1 am leaving Northwestern now for active Christian service and possibly further training, and among other things 1 am conscious of this fact that I am leaving a school that has become hallowed by sweet memories of days spent in blessed fellowship with teachers and students. It is here that I have learned to love the blessed Lord more and to study His Word with interest and great profit There will always stand out in my life these blessed three years at Northwestern to offset the sad memories of the early years of my life Page Seventy-lhree ' J. sAP ' LsTss.

Malbon, ’27 Axel O. Gdegard, ' 22 President Executive Secretary Corresponding and Financial Sec’y Recording Secretary - Treasurer Edit or Chairman Bible Conference Committee AS WE WERE IN ' 17 S WE think of the days of 17, a thousand memories clamor for expres¬ sion. Those were the days when the student body numbered about seventy-five. We all lived, with only an occasional discordant note, in the old building at 6 Eleventh St. So., which, in addition to being our home, housed the administrative offices and classrooms—or rather, the LSjFgy classroom. In this recitation hall we recited, took notes on lectures, and those who were fortunate enough to sit behind a post, slept. Here, too, out chapel services and prayer meetings were held, which today are among our most sacred memories. We recall with delight our contacts with the instructors, both in the class¬ room and in social and spiritual relationships. Our superintendent, Dr. Riley, was our occasional teacher of Homiletics. We were always sorry not to know of this special event before hand, so that we could prepare our lessons better. Miss Van Booskirk. the assistant superintendent, claimed our devotion by her sacrificial life and her practical suggestions for the conduct of our lives. Dr. S. J, Reid was no less proficient in telling Irish stories than in teaching Systematic Theology. Dr. Vallentync’s good-natured admonition, " Good-bye; be good, " at the close of each lecture helped much toward keeping our deportment as it should be. It was at this time that the Student Volunteer Band was organized and that the student forum began to function. We also designed and adopted the school pin. As we recall memories associated with old 6 Eleventh St. So., we feel that there we enjoyed a foretaste of Heaven. Time only cements the bond of our Christian fellowship and deepens our love for the alumni, for our Alma Mater, and for our Lord, Who made Northwestern possible. IN T 24 Another group will soon join that already swelling number of splendid young men and women who today are proclaiming the precious truths they imbibed from the consecrated men and women of our dear Alma Mater. To every alumnus come tender memories of the happy days spent at Northwestern, where for three short years we were privileged to hide God’s Word in our hearts and to study to show ourselves approved unto God. The student of today, as he enjoys the finely equipped study and recitation rooms and other facilities, cannot fully understand what these days mean to us, and indeed, will not until the years have passed. Page- Seventy-four To our many alumni laboring in the far-away distant fields and to those serving in the homeland, the happy memories of North western take them back to a small group of buildings known as 6 Eleventh Street South, the present home of the freshman boys, but which In the 11 good old days " gave shelter to every department of the school, where the odor of cooking vegetables would mingle with Doctrine and Analysis Then, too, we cannot retrospect without thinking of the coal chute in the rear of the building, which formed a haven of refuge and escape for many who had lingered for lunch after assignments, or who had failed to notice that the clock told the hour of " lights out. " With such conveniences and in spite of some handicaps, we were a united family, and we have render recollections of midnight prayer meetings where the fellowship was sweet where hearts were unburdened, where decisions were made, where problems were discussed and where prayers were answered. The succeeding days at Northwestern brought rapid changes to our school life, and many of us were privileged to live through the transition period when because of the vision and labors of our beloved superintendent, new ground was broken and guided by the Divine Architect the present Northwestern became a reality. Today, though we are scattered far and wide, we are in heart insep¬ arably bound together with the cords of His matchless grace, and daily we praise our loving Heavenly Father that our feet were ever led to dear old Northwestern, Watch for the announcement of the fall Home-Coming ' WHAT THEY SAY Stanley Anderson ' 24, who, since graduating from Northwestern, has taken Ins Tb.B. and B,A, degrees and is now pastor of three churches in Jackson, Tennessee, writes: ' If they ever have another debate about which should come first, a college course or the Northwestern Bible School training, give them my testimony that I advocate that the latter should come first, ft is sure proof against any heresies we may run into. " Victor Nelson, ' 25, who is now taking a medical course preparatory to going to Africa as a missionary, sends this word of appreciation: " I say, not in a hasty thought or an over-enthusiastic moment, that I still believe that North¬ western Is the best Bible school in the country. ' 1 thank my God upon every remembrance of you.’ A young man here said that something must have happened to me and that there must have been some great disappointment in my life because I wanted to live part of it in dark Africa. I told him that something did happen-—not a disappointment , but an appointment Plan for the Home-Coming! WELCOME TO CLASS OF ' 28 As each succeeding class graduates from Northwestern, the Alumni Asso¬ ciation receives new reinforcements, increasing its strength and usefulness. We are happy therefore, to welcome Into our ranks the Class of ‘28, feeling assured, because we arc one in faith and interests, that our fellowship will be a blessed one, a benediction to the school and an honor to our Lord, Because after commencement, our lives touch so seldom, we eagerly antici¬ pate the autumn " Home-Coming, " when we renew friendships, rejoice over one another ' s progress, and receive fresh inspiration for the coining days in the Master ' s service It is truly a " coming home, " and a time of refreshing and bea r t -sa tisfactio n See you at the Home-Comingl Page S r cm i g - five GENERAL INFORMATION The primary objective of our school is the thorough preparation of you ng men and women for specific phases of Christian work, such as the ministry, home and foreign mission fields, teaching, pastors " assistants, and secretarial work. We offer adequate training for any of these fields of service in two, three, or four years, depending on the student ' s preliminary education. College graduates may finish the course in two years, high school graduates in three years, and those without high school in four years. A student working his way through school, unless he has exceptional ability, may find it advisable to take four years to complete the course, RECENT ENLARGEMENT The Northwestern Bible and Missionary Training School has this year enlarged the scope of its educational program. New features have been added to meet the present-day need for increasing efficiency in Christian service. Our aim is to make possible the highest intellectual and spiritual development of each student, whether he is preparing for some specific full-time Christian work, or only for wider usefulness as a layman. THE PREPARAT ORY COURSE The steady rise in our scholastic standard has made it necessary to institute a one-year Preparatory Course for those whose early education has been limited. Many young people have a call to service but feel that the way is blocked by their inadequate educational qualifications. This course supplements their previous training, with special emphasis on English, It takes up a study of the laws and principles of Bible study; dispensations, covenants, and types. Every student who is not a high school graduate is required to take the Preparatory Course. At the completion of this work, he is qualified to take up the regular three-year course .which is offered to high school graduates. THE ONE-YEAR COURSE One attractive feature of our curriculum is the one-year course, added this year, which has already met several needs. It is an intensive study, covering the entire Bible, with kindred subjects, including Personal Work, Practical Work, Missions. Doctrine, Polemics, and Christian Evidences. This course is a great safeguard for a young person entering a modern college or university, where be is likely to be subjected to erroneous teachings regarding God, Creation, the authenticity of the Bible, etc, A thorough knowledge ol the Word of God and the ability to intelligently defend it arc the most vital parts of one ' s educational equipment. No young person should enter upon his college career without at least one year of Bible study. Parents should carefully consider the importance of giving their sons and daughters this year ' s instruction to stabilize them in the Christian faith, and to enable them to detect and refute modern scepticism. The one-year course has exactly suited the need of many young men and women who do not intend to give their whole time to any definite form of Christian service, but who desire a better knowledge of the Bible and practical methods of presenting it. I his instruction not only makes them more useful in their home churches, but also aids them in iheir personal contacts in the home and in professional and business life. Page Seventy-six This course is also very valuable to those who have been in the ministry for some time, but who want a comprehensive and thorough review ol the Word of God, , , No diplonia t of course, is offered for this work. I he one-year student is not recognized as a fully trained Christian worker, unless be has other education equivalent to that of our three-year course.

Foley AREWELL! This common word of parting is generally misunder¬ stood: therefore in order to avoid that dolorous significance so often attached to it, we are inclined to translate it ' Rejoice ' which is entirely permissible. ‘ For what is our crown of rejoicing, are not ye in the Lord?” Who could conceive of a more happy or joyous occasion than this, as we sec you step out, with the benediction of the Northwestern Bible and Mis¬ sionary Training School and, best of all, of God Himself, upon you to bless and comfort others with that wherewith you have been blest and comforted of God Personally, let me say that while you may go from my face, you will go from my heart never, 1 can say with Paul to the PhiLippians, ' It is fitting for me to think thus of you because I bear you in my heart,” Hitherto hath the Lord led you; may He lead you all the way So far as your school days at Northwestern are concerned, you have gradu¬ ated. but so far as your Christian service is concerned you have only matricu¬ lated. What other schools you may enter wc do not know, but we know our highest commendation is, 14 We commend you to God and to the word of His grace which is able to build you tip. and give you a place among all them that are sanctified.” This Word we have endeavored to instill into your minds and hearts that it might be incorporated into your lives. Take unto yourselves, in your measure, as Paul did in his apostolic measure when he said, “It pleased God to reveal His Son in me that I might preach Him.” This is true of you all whether your preaching be of the public proclamation or conversational sort. Be studious, be thoughtful, be prayerful, keep sane. Bear II Timothy 2:15 in mind with the emphasis in the right place ' unto God f Preach the Word, avoiding hobbies. But if you must have one, be sure you ride it: see that it does not ride you. Preach an all-around, rounded out. symmetrical truth Seek not popularity: popular opinion crucified Christ, but no preacher of the crucified Christ ever became very popular. Do not neglect the " don’ts " of the preacher; therefore, see to it that your subscription to the Pilot never lapses, lest you miss one of A. KrabVs most helpful articles You will encounter many petty annoyances from good people, ”Bcar with the hen ' s cackle for the sake of the egg T Remember growth is gradual and don ' t forget Ruskin— " To be a man too soon is to be a small one Some men can deal with subjects which others had better let alone, " Simple diet is best, for many dishes bring many ailments”—especially if not properly prepared. Live so that all that know you, but don ' t know Christ, will want to know Christ because they know you. " Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well pleasing in His sight, tbrough Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. " (Hebrews 1 3:20 and 21.) Page Eighty-iwo IN CONSIDERATION of the valuable counsel and personal effort of Miss Acomb, the Class of ' 28 wish to express our gratitude. We also desire to acknowledge the kind generosity of Mr. J, C. Buckbee: the unstinted co-operation of Mr. Lee Lovering: the willing assistance of Miss Or la Johnson and Miss Lydia Read: to whom we owe much of the success of this book. Page Eighty-three FAREWELL To Our School: Three years have all too rapidly flown since first you welcomed us. Now the time has come to say. " Farewell.” For every task while here God gave us strength; the hardest task remains—to leave. But in His name and strength we " go” at His command, " to make disciples of all nations. " In sorrow we leave our School behind, but with joy divine we follow Christ, Who goes before. To Our Instructors: You have been the greatest stimulant to our growth in grace and in the knowledge of Him. Though we must separate, we do so only in part, for our lives are your lives; our thoughts arc your thoughts; our vision is your vision; our Hope is your Hope. Our " eyes have seen the King” through you. To Our Schoolmates: We cannot but believe that Providence has ordered our mutual acquaintance, for in knowing you we have been richly blessed. We have laughed and worked and prayed together. Now as we part, we covet a place in your memories and in your prayers and trust that time will only strengthen the bonds of our friendship until we are reunited at His coming.

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. % Ninth at Nicollet Lake St. and Bloomington Ave. Fourth at Hennepin 610 Second Avenue South To The Graduating Class You are entering upon a life service which will be strengthened and sanctified by and through prayer. I suggest the following as often as convenient: " Lord, support us all the day long of this troublesome life, until the shadows lengthen, and the evening come, and this busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done; and then, in Thy mercy, grant to us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.” Hector Baxter. Page Eighty-six In parting with the graduating class, may I suggest affec¬ tionately to each one, to recite the 23rd Psalm daily, oftencr if possible. Hector Baxter, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he lcadeth me beside the still waters. He rcstorcth my soul: he lcadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name ' s sake. Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou a noin test my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”— Psalm 23. Payt ' Eighly-sccen E3 k,? - - , . t Zo r N. W. B + S.
