Text from Pages 1 - 136 of the 1934 volume:

" All hail the pow’r of Jesus’ name! £et angels prostrate fall; “Bring forth the royal diadem, And crown Jttm £ord of all.” We flames of persecution have always kindled the hcart- juxs of faith, whether in the dim ages of the past, or in the present day; whether in the breast of the oriental, or of the occidental. “Pages of history ave blotched with hlood stains of unrecanting Christians whose testimony was, “Jesus only " . IDhtle Spain burned her victims, far-away Japan sought the lives of all Christians, Chere was a little boon of safety to which the harass¬ ed Japanese believers fled. ODacao, on the southern coast of China, afforded this shelter for the fugitives. In face of grim persecution these fearless people worshiped in a little stone church on the rocks of that shore. In this cross-crowned chapel, the prayers and pleas of suffering saints arose to the Cord above. After the tongues of these worshipers were at last stilled, the empty church re-whispered their prayers for decades to the silent shore, until a mighty, relentless typhoon, accom¬ panied by a devastating earth-yuake, beat upon that ancient church and crumbled its foundation. Che place of prayer was reduced to a mass of rocks and debris-all save the facade bearing the bronze cross. Centuries later, as the sun had once more set behind the ruins, John Sowring, an Englishman, chanced by way of (Dacao. A mass of mossy, gray stones loomed through the twilight haze. Above the standing facade, a cross was etched against the deepening sunset. Che surviving symbol spoke to the heart of the man in mingled awe and reverence. Che gaze of Sowring upon that enduring cross was turned into the words of that immortal song: In the Cross of Christ I Glory, Cow ' ring o’er the wrecks of time; All the light of sacred story Gathers round its head sublime. As that stone cross towers over the wreckage in CDacao, glorified by the rays of setting sun, so the Cross of Christ rises over the wrecks of time, resplendent in the light of Eternity. ■Because he has " purposed in his heart " to glorify God; because he has used his talent to train others for singing the Savior’s praise; because he has given generously, both spiritually and materially, to the development of our school; and because we love him, we, the Class of dedicate our Scroll to (Dr. Georqe Krieqer. « wish to sound the introductory note to our Scroll by saying that within its pages, we have endeavored to exalt the Cross of Christ in which we glory. ‘Blest is the tie that binds the members of the Administrative De¬ partment as they labor together in Christian love to promote the sacred claims of that Cross. Inspirational is the song of our ‘Redeemer, as it rises in unison from the great student body who, through the ‘Practical IDork Department, spread the message of that Cross. Challenging is the summons from the CDissions Section, to go forth as Christian Heralds proclaiming sal¬ vation through that Cross. It is our prayer that this booh may faithfully exalt our crucified, risen, glorified, and coming Cord. Ev ' 6- r T k ' ' ' -- s Amazing grace! how sweet the sound, Chat saved a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found, LDas blind, but now I see. I he Sunday morning congregation rises and begins to drone: " Amazing grace! how sweet the sound, Chat saved a wretch like me.” Che good parishioners would not be quite so spiritless and detached if they knew the strange story, which forms a background for this hymn, John ‘Hewton, the author of " Amazing Grace”, was bom in Condon in 1725. His faithful, Christian mother died when he was seven years old, and John went to sea with his father, at the age of eleven. tOicked sailors and infidel literature soon turned him into a lawless, carousing renegade, and his life resolved itself into a series of harrowing ad¬ ventures, which would put to shame the most fantastic fiction. Jie deserted the navy, but after being captured, he was flogged at the mast and degraded. Jiis wild, reckless escapades led him lower and lower, until he became the miserable bondman of an unscrupulous slave trader, and wallowed in indescribable sin. At last, in hts wretch¬ edness, he remembered hts mother’s teaching and began to read, " Che Imitation of Christ”, a deeply spiritual book by Chomas A’ ' Kempis. After two miraculous escapes from death, he determined to turn from his sins and try to please God by living an upright, moral life. !He became the master of a slave ship and spent sir years in learn¬ ing the hitter lesson that, in God’s sight, " All our righteousnesses are as filthy rags”. At the end of this period, another captain brought him to a saving knowledge of the Cord Jesus Christ. After his conversion, John Newton left the sea, and devoted him¬ self to preaching and hymn writing. Jle died at the age of eighty-two -the loved and honored rector of St. CDary IDoolroth. In the light of this brief record, consider the testimony which he left us in his beautiful hymn. " Chro’ many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come; ' Cis grace hath bro’t me safe thus far. And grace will lead me home.” ' But all And lip Ghei at Ts 3 OK th A through the mountains, thunder viv’n, from the rocky steep, ose a glad cry to the gate of heav’n, ! I have found my sheep!’ angels echoed around the throne, juice, for the Lord brings back His own!’ Edinburgh train moved along, bearing the renowned evangelists, ©wight £,. (Doody was reading a letter, while Ira ©. Sankey fruitlessly searched a Condon newspaper for news from home. In his disappointment, was about to discard the paper when his eyes fell upon a bit of poetry in one corner, and his mind was impressed by its words: " Ghere were ninety and nine that safely lay In the shelter of the fold, Eut one was out on the hills away. Tar off from the gates of gold— Away on the mountains wild and bare, Away from the tender Shepherd ' s care. Jie called (Dr. CDoody’s attention to the poem, who in turn asked to have it read. Ghis (Dr. Sankey did with all the enthusiasm and elocutionary powers he could command, only to fnd, after he had finished, that CDr. (Doody was again absorbed in his letter and had not heard a word. Ghe singer was chagrined; but, nevertheless, he ftted the verses in his scrap-book for future reference. At the noon meeting on the second day in Edinburgh, (Dr. (Doody and ©r. Sonar had delivered eloquent and stirring addresses on the subject, " Ghe Good Shepherd, " when (Dr, (Doody turned to his as¬ sociate and asked him, " Ttave you an appropriate solo for closing the service? " (Dr. Sankey had nothing in mind except the Gwenty-third ©salm, which had already been sung several times in the meeting. An inner voice said, “Sing the hymn you found on the train. " tOith a prayer in his heart that God would supply the necessary tune, (Dr. Sankey placed the little slip of paper before him on the organ, struck the key of A flat, and began to sing. ‘Dote by note the tune was given, and it has not been changed from that day to this. IDhen he finished, a great sigh rose up from the audience, and he knew their hearts had been touched. (Dr. (Doody, with tears in his eyes, leaned over the organ and asked, " Sankey, where did you get that hymn? I never heard the tike of it in my life,” And thus a song was born—a song which brings hope to the stray¬ ing Christian, courage to the tried, and a new vision to us of the keeping power of Our Shepherd. P. Bliss was inspired to write this hymn by listening to one of®. C. CIDoody ' s illustrations. Ghis was the great evangelist’s story: " One dark, turbulent night, as a veritable tempest beat the sea into a maelstrom, a ship fought its perilous way toward Cleveland harbor. After the big lighthouse had been visible for some time, the captain began to question the pilot. " Are you sure this is Cleveland?’ " ' Quite sure, sir,’ replied the pilot. " ' But where are the lower lights?’ the captain insisted. " ' Gone out, sir,’ was the respectful answer. " Ghe captain began to be really frightened, and inquired about the possibility of entering the harbor at all. Ghe answer came with all the finality of a death sentence, ' tDe must, or perish, sir! " Carefully and courageously the old pilot eased the ship through the dreadful clamor of the storm, but as he sought vainly for the safe channel, the ship swerved too far to one side and crashed on the merciless rocks. " !H«re is our lesson. It was not the fury of the storm, but the fail¬ ure of the lower lights that crushed out many a precious life that night. Brethren, the CDaster will take care of the great lighthouse; let us keep the lower tights burning.” " Grim your feeble lamp, my brother: Some poor sailor tempest tossed, Grying now to make the harbor, In the darkness may be lost. " £et the lower lights be burning! Send a gleam across the wave! Some poor fainting, struggling seaman, lfou may rescue, you may save,” the evening preceding one of the great battles of the ivil tOar, a small group of Christian young men from he Union Army gathered in a tent for prayer. Chere, mid the harsh, unnatural surroundings, they commit¬ ted themselves into the ClDaster’s hands. In this solemn hour they were brought face to face with the reality of death, for it was foolish to hope that they would all survive the approaching conflict. As the evening wore on, their thoughts turned to the loved ones whom they might never see again. “Finally, one of the group said, " Our families would be comforted if we could only tell them what is in our hearts tonight. Cet us write our testimony, and if one of us lives through the battle, he can send the document home.” Chis plan received instant approval, But the men had some difficulty expressing their sentiments until it was suggested that they use the words of the old hymn, " (Dy Tatth Cooks Up Co " Ghee”, as an appropriate fare¬ well message. " Ghe next day in the battle, the members of the little company fell one by one; but faithful to the agreement, the survivor sent their triumphant testimony to sorrowing fathers, mothers, wives and children: " U)hen ends life’s transient dream, U)hen death’s cold, sullen stream Shall o’er me roll; Blest Savior, then, in love, Tear and distrust remove; O bear me safe above, A ransomed soul!” y sin-sick heart btheld a throng tDhose steps were light and hurried; Chey lagged not on the sunlit way, dlor wasted moments of the day, ‘But sang when skies were bright and gay— Bor in the Cross of Christ they gloried.

A Gribute to ‘Tloi ' th western By a Senior O VER thirty years ago, God in His all-seeing providence, raised up a mighty man of faith to do a great work. Today we are happy and privileged to have him still in our midst, feeling that our own lives are enriched by his noble influence. I refer to Dr. William 13. Riley, the founder and superintendent of our beloved institution. Nor can we claim him entirely as our own, for he is a national figure in ecclesiastical circles, and old and young everywhere lay claim to his affections. We admire him for his stem and uncompromising stand for the truth; we applaud him as we sec another opponent of the faith sink beneath his irrefutable logic; we honor him for the foes lie has made that the testimony of the Word might be maintained; we love him, because he takes time to lay aside his many duties in order to give a sympathetic ear to our problems and to advise us out of his mature experience. His influence upon this age will live on in the lives he has blessed. Today, Northwestern stands a firm witness to the strength of that faith, which in past years conceived the birth of our school. She stands as another testimony of God ' s unfailing promise to care for that which He has called into being. Many a storm, many a conflict has been safely weathered as claim has been made of God s promises. Northwestern is another example of faith fulfilled, as our beloved directors have looked to the hand of God for sus tcnance and guidance. Because God’s favor has rested so fully on her, each year brings a greatly increased enrolment, until at present we number live hundred day and night students. Many a parent has sacrificed that his child might be educated in some Christian school. It was a happy moment when father and mother saw their beloved son or daughter start off for college, Imagine their grief, a few short years later to find the immature root of their child’s faith to have been ruthlessly destroyed in a so-called Christian institution. Parents need not hesitate to send their children to Northwestern, for here they will be thoroughly indoctrinated in the truths of the Bible, which form an invincible battlement against the liberal and infidel ideas so rampant in this day. The precious truths of Christianity arc staunchly contended for, and our students in turn go out from its w-alls, “Holding Forth the Word of Life.” Immeasurable has been the influence of Northwestern. The records of heaven alone will reveal the fruitage from lives prepared for Christian service here. From every walk of life, young people have been called to follow’ the Master and the preparatory step has been made here. They have gone out to bring in the sheaves. Many a child in neglected fields may never have heard of Dr. Riley nor of Northwestern. Bright jewels they arc, chose souls who have been saved through the ministry and prayers of its graduates, jewels that will sparkle through¬ out all the ages of eternity! Because our school has a missionary vision, she early inculcates in the hearts of the students a feeling of their individual responsibility to the heathen. Obedience to this vision has sent forth many young lives who today labor in all lands and climes, At the judgment seat of Christ, multitudes of redeemed heathen souls will appear, a rich trophy to our school! I w-el[ remember my days here; I count them as the most happy of my life. Today I look back almost regretfully that they are so soon to end. I am grateful for the blessings I ' ve enjoyed here and for the privilege of having the Word of God opened up by godly teachers. My faith, rather weak and wavering when I came, has been mightily strengthened. Here true and lasting friendships have been formed which will last through eternity. I have learned much of God ' s unerring wisdom and care toward I lls children. My desire is time the blessings I have received here may, to some extent, be imparted to those with whom I come in contact. Piige Thirteen September 1, 1933 Page Pi ftent " Uncle Cob” Page Semit CDusic Indispensable to IDorship c By Dr. W. B, Riley USIC is universally appreciated and practiced. The English ploughboy sings as he drives his team; the Scotch Highlander makes the gle ns and gray moors resound with his beautiful song; the Swiss, Tyrolese, and Carpathians lighten their labor by music; the muleteer of Spain cares little who is on the throne or behind it, if he can only have his early carol; the vintager of Sicily has his evening hymn, even beside the fire of the burning mount; the fisherman of Naples has his boat-song, to which his rocking boat beats time on that beau¬ tiful sea; and the gondolier of Venice still keeps up his midnight serenade.” Music is indispensable. To conduct a church without music would be to accomplish what no one has yet had the hardihood even to attempt. Music is the one art that appeals to all classes; that reaches and strangely moves the ignorant and the educated, the poor and the rich, the denizen of the home, the attendants at church, and even the gay and godless that gather for social converse. Someone has said, " It is the gift of tongues, and is able, therefore, to speak to each in the vernacular to which he was bom.” Among the arts it can come nearest to the claim of Divine origin since at the finished creation, morning start sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy” (job. 38:7). The art that has such approval cannot he despised by the church of God. The Importance of Music can scarcely be over-stressed. In worship it has a Scriptural warrant. David of the Old Testa¬ ment is called the sweet singer of Israel. Neither the Scriptures nor tradition tell us anything of Ids voice. We do not surely know that he sang at all; but, with the pen of inspiration, be so wrote as to inspire anthems and oratorios in almost endless numbers, and his appeals were such as to stir the most sluggish souls to song. ' 7 wilt praise thee with my whole heart” is a phrase that rings through the one hundred and fifty Psalms or Songs written by this inspired man with such constant repetition as to remind one of the call of morning bells. He is not content with solo work. He would have the forces of nature peal forth the praises of God like an infinite organ; “fire and hail” and “snow” and “vapors” and “stormy wind” and “all deeps.” Pie w f ould have the earth itself become vocal and “mountains and all hills join in the praise of GW,” He would have “the beasts and all cattle “creeping things and flying fowl” to utter forth their praise. He would have “the sun and the moon and all the stars of light” to join. He would have “all young men and maidens” “all people,” including “princes and judges and hugs of the earth” praise the Name of the Lord. Yea, he would have “the heaven of the heavens” and “the waters beneath the earth” unite their voices in the glad refrain. Finally, he would have “all angels and all the hosts of heaven” tunc their tongues to the paeon of God s praise. The New Testament apostles are no whit at variance with this Old Testament prophet in this matter. On that night before Jesus was betrayed, when He had administered the Supper that should forever remain a type of His sacrifice, we read that “When they had jtmg an hymn , they went out into the Mount of Olives” (Matt. 26:30). Paul and Silas were m prison. They had been mercilessly beaten; their feet were fast in the stocks, and their hands were manacled; but “at midnight Paul and Silas prayed } and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them” (Acts 16:25). James, in his epistle (5:13), writes, “Is any merry? Let him sing psalms.” Singing, then, is not one of those non-essential accretions fastened on the blood-bought Body; it is the very expression of its new, glad life; and Christianity without song is well-nigh inconceivable. Little wonder that Donald Fraser said, ' ‘Sing, oh, Christian, on your heavenly way; let Page Eighteen of hvi$t$ God be extolled both in the sanctuary and in the firmament of His power. Let all bread praise the Lord.” The Purposes of Music arc unlimited, I am not concerned with music as it relates itself to mere mirth; as it is used between salacious theatre scenes; as it attends the rhythmic movements of the modern dance, or as it entertains social circles. With these forms of music the pastor has little contact and in most cases small interest. But music as it relates itself to the Christian religion moves to very definite objectives. First of all, IT SHOULD VOICE THE PRAISES OF A GRACIOUS GOD. 1 bis was its particular employment in the Old Testament times by Israel, as the entire Booh ol the Psalms attests. Haydn, who contributed to the climax of Christian sentiment in both rote and word, said, “A religion without thanksgiving, praise and joy is like a flower without perfume, tint or nectar There may be such a flower, but surely no one would care to pluck it. Being once asked why his church music was so cheerful, Haydn replied, I cannot make it otherwise. When I think of God, my heart is so full of joy that the notes dance and leap!” It is my candid opinion that the spirit that incites to praise and thanksgiving is the very one that will solve practically all the problems of life itself. The singing man is never .1 soured man, neither a cynical man; and the man whose lips are filled with praises never burdens them with complaints. ALL FORMS OF WORSHIP, HOWEVER, MAY BE VOICED BY MUSIC Prayer as well as petition; sorrow, suffering, bereavement as well as joy, gladness and rejoicing. Someone has said, “Music has a unique relation to our emotional natures. It expresses feeling, yea, life itself!” That is why it has a place and is often indulged in when one is solitary—alone. That is why it is engaged in when the family circle assembles around the parlor piano. That is why it swells into anthem proportions when the people gather in the House of God, I hat is why it is conceivable that the great hours in heaven and of eternity will be characterized by the song of all saints and of all angels. It is the one way to voice worship. Hot the only way, but the most natural way, and a Divinely approved way. IT MAY BE EMPLOYED IN SOUL-APPEAL. Thousands have been won to Christ through Gospel songs. Full well do I remember the night in Chicago when the officials of my church, having spent till two o’clock in the morning of the night previous, rose from their knees and shaking hands, said one to another, “She will be saved tomorrow night 1 .” For all that time we had spent in pleading with God for the soul-salvation of a young woman who was engaged to be married to one of the most efficient officers we had in Calvary Church, When the night had arrived I preached the tenderest sermon of which I was capable. She listened through it all, and that most earnestly, and with evident conviction. In the after- meeting T extended my pleadings to an unusual length, but she moved not. Finallv, almost in despair, I turned to F. FI. Jacobs, one of the greatest singers that American history has known, and I said, “Beloved, sing! He stood up and with his match¬ less voice and pleading tones he rendered “Almost Persuaded.” The notes of that number rang to every corner of the room, till finally he reached the last - “Almost persuaded,” harvest is past! “Almost persuaded,” doom comes at last! “Almost” can not avail; “almost” is but to fail! Sad, sad that bitter wail, “Almost,” but lost! She arose before the sound of his voice was stilled, and fairly rushing forward, she flung herself into the front scat and said, “I resisted the sermon; but I cannot resist the song!

L. Moyer “The God oj Peace”- I ThCSS. 5:23 . . , " The Peace of God”— Phil. 4:7 V ARIOUS words arc translated ‘peace " in both the Old and New Testaments. Some times the word means merely “to keep silent ’ as in Genesis 24:21 and Luke 20:26, The word in our texts, however, means unity and concord, thus bringing to us the thought of the God of Harmony. Man, in the beginning, was in harmony with God, but the false notes of sin were struck, which swelled and filled the universe with discord. Hannony is restored only to that sinner who, by faith, is keyed in Christ, for truly, “the chastisement of our peace was upon Him.” We will view the stages of this harmony in three divisions: L Harmony Bestowed—Concord The whole of Scripture testifies to the unity and concord of the Godhead. This Concord is reflected in the perfect creation in Genesis, for " God saw everything very good ” This Con¬ cord existed between God and man in the beginning, for God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness,” and then in the garden in Eden God walked and talked with the man whom He had created, A blessed intimacy existed between them. One has written: “Hear these words: ' And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the held, and every fowl of the air, and brought them unto Adam, to see what lie would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature that was die name thereof How refreshing to look upon such a fair scene of holy intimacy: God making living creatures, man calling them by name; God setting approval on what man did; man rejoicing in the work of God s hands. What a blessed communion, without a jarring note! God seeking His creatures’ good and comfort; man seeking God’s glory and enjoying His presence.” But alas, sin came in and marred this perfect picture. IL Harmony Marred—Discord Soon we read that in the cool of the day God came to walk again with man, in peace; but man did not meet God, for man hid away from God, in sin, in fear and in shame. The harmony was spoiled, and man was no longer in tune with God. Who uttered the first false note of sin? We arc not left in doubt, for we learn from r joi in 3:8 “the devil sinneth from the beginning.” The devil is the original sinner. He, too, was at one time consonant with God. Of him in his unfallen state we read: “Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty . . Thou wast the anointed cherub that covereth; and i have set thee so; thou wast upon the holy mountain of God . . . thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day thou wast created till iniquity was found in thee.” Ezekiel 28:12-19. Note that he was not begotten of man or born of woman, but created. Elis “pipes” and “tabrets” (13) seem to suggest that this matchless creature was made to worship God in sweet harmony in response to the breathings of the Spirit, Possibly be was the leader of that great heavenly chorus when the morning stars sang together and the sons of God shouted for joy. But discord came, for he struck the wrong note, the note l T ” Here we have sin—- a L” (Isa. 14:12-14, Read,) Independence! Our very breath is from God. Sin is substituting self for God our way for Elis way. Sin is the deification of self; it is rebellion against Him. But God Himself is the keynote, and Elis glory will He not give to another. In Him alone is harmony. Satan stole into the garden in Eden, where all was harmony, and induced man to strike the false note that brought discord—that note of self—that note “I.” In heaven it was “I will 1 " I will” (Isa. 14:12-14), while on earth it was “I did,” “I did” (Gen. 3:12-13). So Page Thirtx fn o ot ® hr i$f$ there came sin and sorrow, tlioms and thistles, disease and death—yea, “we know that tiie whole creation groanedi and travaileth in pain together until now” (Rom. 8:22). That note o£ sin in Eden grew until Cain slew Abel, and then rose higher and higher until every imagina- cion of the thoughts of man’s heart was only evil continually. We were all in the loins of Adam that day when he struck the false note of sm ; and that same discord has been sounding through us — through the whole human race—even down to this day. And because of the discord there is no peace in the heart of man, for “There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked” (Isa, 57:21). And because there is no harmony there is only grief in the heart of God (Gen. 6:6). But is there no way back to harmony — back to peace? Yes! . . . I hanks be to God, Tie is our Peace!” There is harmony for the heart keyed in Christ—and joy for the heart of God! IIL Harmony Restored-—Accord In old Judea twenty centuries ago an angel said to the shepherds, T bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is oorn this day in tbe city of David .1 Savior.” And the heavenly host sang, “Glory to God In die Highest and on earth peace, good-will toward men.” An d that One who was born in the city of David grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man. And now listen to the music! Lo, I am conic to do Thy will, O God.” VCdio is it that comes? Our Savior, Jesus Christ. And the harmony is restored in Him. From that upper room, after they had sung a hymn, our Lord went forth to Gethscmanc, and then to Calvary. And from the old rugged cross on Calvary there came that cry of supreme anguish: “My God, My God, why hast I liou forsaken Me? Why? It was the cry of a sinless Man, a sinless Man forsaken by God! A cry of discord - forsaken by God—unfathomable depths of agony! Why? He who knew no sin was made to be sin for us. Yet it was also the cry of sweetest harmony, for He became obedient unto death, yea, the death of the cross. “Lo, I am come to do Thy will.” He is our peace offering. In Him God and sinner meet; righteousness and peace have kissed each other—harmony is restored. “Peace! Perfect peace! In this dark world of sin! The Blood of Jesus whispers peace within.” Would you have that peace? Then you must have two things that every expert musician must have: A musical car and ability to read, for “faith comcth by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” God ' s Word is a testimony to the fact that Christ died for your sins, and that He was raised again from the dead. Believe it, and you will sing and make melody in your heart unto the Lord. “Happy day, happy day, When Jems washed my sins mvay ' y Salvation makes you sing. When Israel was redeemed from death and delivered from Pharaoh they sang the song of salvation by the sea (Ex. 15:1). No Pharaoh can harm those who sing as Moses and the children of Israel did that day: ' The Lord is my strength and song, and He is become my salvation ” The orchestra was playing with sweet harmony. Then die instruments were laid aside while the musicians partook of refreshments. A mischievous boy stole in among those instru¬ ments and trifled with them—loosened a string here, tightened one there, and when the musi¬ cians returned and began to play, a horrible discord was the result I hen the pianist struck a key and each player tuned in to that key, and then when they began to play, the room was flooded with harmony. Man was m tune with God in Eden, but the devil stole in and touched the harp strings of man’s soul. The result was the horrible discord of sin Then Christ came and struck the key of obedience to the Father, even unto that sacrificial death; and now when we are in Christ, we are at one again with the Father through His wondrous gift of peace, and our hearts are filled with music Pxgc Thirty three Our ‘Board of ‘Directors W, B.

Little hands of persecuted saints met together in seeitided forests and subterranean vaults to pray and sing. Music not only comforted them in their loneliness, but also sustained them when they fell into tire hands of their merciless oppressors. Even while they were being scourged burned, crucified, and torn by wild beasts, their simple chants praised God and converted their persecutors. Most believers of the early church were from the humble classes, and their chanting and singing were naturally of a simple but effective character. In Pliny s report we read: “They claim that their only fault or error consists of this— they convene at stated days, before su rise and sing each in turn, a song to Christ as to a God, From this we gather that the singing of the first Christians was individual. However, this assumption may be due to an incorrect translation of the world “in vicem ” or “in turn,” which may have referred to the responsive chanting of the Scriptures by the congregation. In the second century, during the time of Origen, it is known that the people, rich and poor, men and women, sang together. The custom of allowing women to sing with the men was not prohibited until the Synod of Antioch abolished it in 379 A. D. As in anv congregation, some voices were better than others. These singers would gather m one part of the room to lead in the music, and in that way the idea of choirs originated. I aid singers existed as early as the second century. Wlth them came a gradual increase in elaborateness of presentation and in their own self-glorification. The singing was all in unison or octaves, until the beginning of the tenth century, when a monk introduced a second part which ran parallel to the melody, but five notes below it. At times this rigid form produced some very weird harmonies. It remained for Guido to further develop this idea by making the second part flexible and independent of the melody. Despite the technical advancement of sacred music, the common people were being com¬ pletely deprived of its use. Congregational singing decreased steadily until, at the time of the reformation, the people sang only during special festivals, such as Christmas and Easter, Martin Luther returned the hymns to the laity. The reformers soon introduced the metrical Psalms, but the next major development was the rise of hymnodv. The evangelistic work of the Wesleys called for something more than the mere devotional, worshipful music hitherto employed, and the new hymns abounded in testimonies concerning the joyous personal experiences in salvation. Charles Wesley himself wrote two thousand hymns, four hundred of which are still in tise. After the death of the Wesleys, no radical changes were made in church music until Tia D. Sankey published has song book entitled, “Gospel Hymns.” From its initiation, the new era of hymn writing has been carried on by such moderns and contemporaries as P. P + Bliss, Fannie Crosby, Charles FI. Gabriel, Edwin O, Excell, Homer Rodeheavcr, and B, D. Ackley. Today our hymnals are so versatile that they furnish joyful songs for the Sunday- school, reverent songs for morning worship, devotional songs for prayer meetings, and evan¬ gelistic songs for special meetings.

In like manner, the students of Northwestern, whose year 1935-34 may be compared to one splendid anthem, had to dispense with mechanical details of registration and employment be¬ fore they could begin to write their music The treble clef was indicated by the placing of 150 girls to work in homes, the base clef denoted work for the boys in restaurants and hotels. The key and tempo were set when registration began, September 21. The greatest number of registrants that ever pushed, laughed, and surged in front of the breathless secretaries lined up in the corridors of Jackson Hall After having been carefully inspected by the treasurer’s office, which inspec¬ tion left each one feeling chat lie was in the key of B flat, they received ' their class schedules, which guaranteed a spirited pace for the coming semester ___ rhe opening chord was struck at the first chapel of the year on September 25, — 1933. Mr. Moyer, with an animated swing, waved the baton and drew from the audience notes of testimony and praise. The principal singers were the alumni who had come back to meet old friends, to tell the incoming Freshmen what a great place Northwestern is, and to enjoy the uplift of the atmosphere without the depres¬ sion of study. After William Wesenauer, Curlew, Iowa, played several violin solos, our director introduced the members of the staff, each of whom gave vibrant notes of greeting to the incoming students. Upon introducing Dr. Riley, the dean remarked that our president had ceased to be the bright star in the firmament since September 1, when he went into an eclipse. “Now,” he added, “he is only Mrs. Riley’s husband.” Before the session was fairly begun, the swelling numbers necessitated the throwing open of the doors between the former chapel room and Jackson Hall. As a last resonant tone to this opening chord, the key-note of the whole year’s work was struck by Mr. Moyer in an address, “Learn of Me.” 3 i These eighth notes are lively little Freshmen whose staccato voices resound through the halls and classrooms and echo (usually in duet formation) from obscure comers. Of all the notes in the anthem, they are the most numerous, 200 having enrolled. They may look small and inoffensive, but don’t let that fool you, because they can make a frightful row if you put too many of them together. The little flags atop each one arc the green emblems of their position which they flaunted at the party in their honor, October 13, The easily discernible Freshmen mingled with the upperclassmen in group games, after which all notes over six feet in height participated in a highly accelerated kiddie-car race down the room, to the accompaniment of three hundred Page Pony-eight of ®Wtsf hJ- forcissimo voices. The program of impersonations, trios, ducts, instrumental solos, and group singing which followed was made complete by Dr. Riley’s rendition of two readings in Negro dialect. As a beautiful close to this notable time, Miss Evalyn Camp led the gathering m a devotional period. These notes stand for sophomores who arc a quarter way through the - school. Some have reached that distinction through the merit of one year of study at Northwestern, and others have attained it because of previous edu- — cation. The half notes stand for juniors, open of mind and free of movement. At least they arc freer than they were, for Mr. Bass considers them sufficiently indoctrinated to assign them to preaching engagements. They sound their notes in clear, unhurried ' tones, displaying the confidence acquired by a course half completed. It is a lament¬ able fact, however, that these Junior half notes really have little cause for boasting, inasmuch as they are merely a string of nothings hanging by their tails. Each Thursday morning the Juniors meet at the early hour of 7:15, for a period when their hearts symphonizc together with God in prayer. The whole notes in the anthem arc the Seniors, each of whom fills his 1 - measure with one sustained tone. Ac least every one of these would-be graduates n l lopL . s i le can sustain his tone long enough to eomplcre the anthem andjinaily -sing die great “Amen” that will transport him into the “aluminum society. " Once there, he knows there will be no more weeping and gnashing of teeth—at least not over English- , , . t On one fair day in May, just as spring fever was about to develop into summer coma, these Seniors, fifty strong (which, by the way, comprises “the largest class in our history”) celebrated the famous “skip day.” This, dear prospective student, is the day when each bemor skipped to school as usual. Beyond that point, however, there was nothing more usual. He then proceeded to skip around the halls grinning gleefully at all perspiring underclassmen, after which he skipped out of the building, skipped out of the city into the country, and spent the day skipping around a tennis court, glad chat he was skipping classes. I hat .s why we call it skip d.iy. Forte characterizes our beloved faculty, for it is the firmness of its leading that makes the student strong in tone when he might have been weak, clear when he might have been indis¬ tinct. If you want to know more about forte try skipping a study hall. Also you might come in late to Mr. Moyer’s 7:45 class. But that, dear friends, is fortissimo. Close harmony is produced by the blending of faculty and students in studying, consult¬ ing, playing, and praying together. These chords arc in the major key except at those regular intervals of examination when they are wont to become minor. Occasionally, a discord may be discerned in the music. It is nothing to cause great alarm; it is only some little eighth note who has overstepped his line or space on die staff, and has momentarily found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. The faculty, however, soon discerns and corrects such sour chords. Page Fouy-nine Repeat dots indicate the alumni’s repeated visit to Northwestern at Home- coming, October 30 and 31. It was a repetition of old-time fun, of old-time fet- lowsinp, old-time testimonies and prayer meetings. There was, however, nothing old-time about the banquet fare nor the bonfire at the Riley home, nor about the exhortations and expositions of Mr. Moyer. There was, we know, a hint of the otcRjme regret that accompanied farewells for another year. Bars and double bars represent the dormitories. This does not insinuate that these three attractive buildings across from the park are prisons. What they enclose is fun and fellowship incomparable, but (we must tell the whole truth) once in a while an erring student that reminds us of a flat note is incarcerated therein. Such a one is restored to his correct pitch, however, by the matron who may be compared to a natural sign A f one point in our anthem even the casual listener would have detected a terrific’dis¬ cord. An unsuspecting note who had dutifully retired at the proper time had been removed from his resting place. The afore mentioned natural again restored peace. Beautiful, ethereal music is produced at the dorms each evening at the 9 ’30 fellowship and prayer hour and each Friday evening at the all-school meetings. When one student drops in on another to share experiences or pray together, harmony is produced that thrills the soul or each mend. . , Tilis j sl r 10rt rcs V S the firSt in tfle ar ' them ' 11 «me at Thanksgiving when each stu¬ dent used the two days to catch his breath after the fast tempo at which the faculty had - - been keeping him.

This practice hour is loved by each choir member because he enjoys singing and appreciates the fellowship with his director. A series of programs climaxed by a concert in the First Baptist Church arc a part of the ministry of this choir. r Grace notes are notes of embellishment and to them we would compare those out- — side speakers who have come to us, giving us pleasure and instruction in addition to ■-our regular studies. — During the anthem of this year, we have heard from Joseph Flacks about Jewish Christians; from Dr. B. B. Suteliff on prophecy; from Dr. Durden about work of Northern Baptists; from Dr. H. A. Ironside, Rev. Chester Rosbarro and Dr. Henry Ostrom all of Chicago; from Dr. J. Gresham Machen, Philadelphia; from Mr. H. E Ramscycr secrc ' tary of the Bible House of Duluth; from Dr. Will Houghton, New York; and from Harry Ri miner, Duluth, Each one has enriched the melody in our hearts, 7 This accent mark indicates the emphasis that The Pilot, Northwestern’s Bihlc Study Magazine, places upon the printed news of the Gospel, Through it the Word is sent out to many who are far from study privileges and to many who, by reading it, have found the Savior. To the student, The Pilot affords various opportunities for development. Under the tutelage of the faculty adviser, Miss Helene Renscli, he may write an editorial or an ad, a news item or a poem. He may make up a dummy, correct the proof, or scout for news. The most precious privilege of all, however, is that of partaking in a presentation program of the latest issue. In that his duty may be to place the properties, compose the skit, impersonate an august faculty member, or pick up the debris; but it all goes tow-ard inveigling more shekels out of laggard students who should buy just one more Pilot . This hold indicates the tenacity with which the Mission Band holds over the students the S7 missionary challenge. The Band enlists volunteers for the field, collects funds for the Lords work and inspires zeal by missionary speakers. At the fourth hour each Friday such mission¬ aries as Miss Martha Loud, of India; Dr. ]. L. Hunter, Canada; Dr John Lake, Margaret Reynolds Dr. Isaac Page, Gladys Lind holm, and Dr. Glover, all of China; Elmer Lange, South America; Dr. Frederick Coan, Persia; and Joseph Smith, Burma, have given heart- searching addresses. This tremolo mark is pitifully representative of those notes in our anthem — whose quiverings resemble the Senior preachers. Each one of these mighty men had the incomparable privilege of conducting one chapel service during the second semester. The trembling refers not to the voices of these Spurgeons, not to the definiteness of their messages, but—we hate to reveal it—to their knees. Many cadenzas, ornamental passages of music, were Inserted into the anthem of this year by various musicians who added their talents to chapel services. From our own student body we heard Ada Beth Groom on her violin, Orien Johnson on the cornet, Archer Wenlgcrs bassoon manipula¬ tions, close harmonies of the Senior Girls Trio, string and male quartets, - Mr. Krieger’s choir, and countless piano artists. From outside our number, we heard Donald Crossman, evangelistic musician; Edward Edstrom, national cornet champion, of Worthington, Minnesota; a male quartet from the Los Angeles Bible Institute; the unexcelled Northwestern Assembly Jubilee Singers; Hoyd Jones, Minnesota Bible University; Alexander Kaminsky, Russian violinist; Stanley Markey, cellist of the University of Minnesota Symphony; and f lail Doutel, pianist from Baltimore, During such cadenzas we held our breath, sighed audibly at the close, came down to earth and study again—but everything about us was brighter. Page Fijly-one J his whole rest, Christinas vacation, was the longest one in the anthem. Upon the ringing of die last bell, Thursday, December 21, students began to scatter to the four winds as though the very foundations of Jackson Hall had been blown up. Some hurried home taking classmates with them for visits, one company treked across the states to Pennsylvania by automobile, and others were called for by anxious parents. Minneapolis was almost barren of North westerners except for a few who, cheated of the joy of a long trip, took the same street cars home, no less happy for a rest. This run stands for the athletics by which North westerners develop their famous brawn. On their own playground, amid the turmoil of a great city, they play volley-ball, baseball, and frolic as they will. The proximity of Loring Park offers opportunity for skating and practicing up for the hard-fought annual school tennis tournament, Minneapolis ' countless sports facilities are available to the player whose expression at this measure of the anthem is merely indicated by presto One high point in the year ' s activities which ever remains an intriguing pain in your back, catch in your breath, and delight to your heart, is the yearly picnic. The place is invariably Medicine Lake; the time, one entire spring day and evening; the participants, everyone from breshman to President; and the effect, one grand good time. I he weather may be such that you row a boat sweltering, or you may run around a ball field in a coat and mittens to keep your blood from congealing, but you won ' t mind cither one. The care fare knowledge that everybody is doing it transcends all particulars of weather, dirty faces, and torn clothes. Of course, wc eat, and as unetiquettically as we wish. To climax the day, all of Northwestern ' s musical talent steps out and leads in devotions—the end of a perfect day, — The last rest in our anthem was a half rest occurring at Easter. Spring-fevered stu¬ dents spent it recuperating in the balmy air, catching up on back work, and fortifying themselves for the last movement of the music. The loudest crescendo of the year s anthem, the highest pitch of tone, the most animated movement, was the Senior Banquet. For weeks and even months before, volume had been gathered which culminated in one burst of enthusiasm and splendor. During these measures the underclassmen did their best singing for the enjoy¬ ment of their beloved friends, the Seniors, who formed an enraptured audience. Each student wore his best bib and tucker, sat beside his best girl hc had found one by that time), ate the best feast, admired the best decorations, and enjoyed the best program that Northwestern ' s combined ingenuity could offer. ZJ- , i A-men. I he Anicn, that last resonant chord of the Northwestern anthem, pealed forth the night of Commencement, June 1. Fifty young people gave their farewells to the institution and to their true friends who had for three years instructed them in eternal knowledge. After dedicatory prayer to the Lord above, they received their diplomas, and went out to hold aloft the lighted torch of truth. Page fifty-two Sports at ‘llorthwestern S POINTS accessible to the Northwestern student are not only those offered by the school itself, but also are those provided by the best park and recreational system in the North¬ west—that of the city of Minneapolis. . , f If it be winter, the student may go across the street from his dormitory home, and alter putting on his skates in the wanning-house, glide over the newly scraped ice that glistens m the bright sun. , , ■ , The exhilaration of tobogganing down a long, elecmcally-lightcd, iced crack so catches his enthusiasm that he frequently gets a group of Tiis friends to jom him in this sport. 1 here arc several such municipal slides, and they don’t cost a thing—except a ravenous appetite The ball fan, whether baseball, volley-ball, or basket-ball, has his desires met in several ways. The muscles that ache to pitch a ' Tanned out” game, and the body that loves the very sight of a ball diamond may go to Loring Park or to the city Parade Grounds close at hand. It is well to keep in practice, for the crowning event of every spring picnic at Medicine Lake is the ball game between the Seniors and the underclassmen. Northwestern’s own playground is used for fast volley ball games, and over in the park many even indulge in a little old- fashioned horseshoe pitching. , . T . , Tennis Is the outstanding sport during the early spring months. I he body rainy tingles with anticipation as the time draws near to participate in this sport. During the latter part of the school year, a contest is held to determine the champion tennis player of Northwestern, The competition is keen, as all students are invited to enter the meet. Golf is the favorite sport of the school s “government. It furnishes exercise for the president and deans and also for those students who possess the necessary twenty-five cents. The lakes of Minneapolis, famous for their number and beauty, afford varied enjoyment for the student. There he may swim, canoe, row or sail. . Such physical activities as have been mentioned are not forced upon the student. He is encouraged to participate in them according to his own individual need and ability so that he may maintain a healthy body for the glory of God—the aim of sports at Northwestern, Pd e Fifty ! hrcc Omission Sand HPHE Mission Band is an organization within the student body which aims to place before each member the challenge of the foreign mission field. Returned missionaries are invited o speak, letters from missionaries are read, and plans are made to help those already at work Every morning at 7:15 groups gather for a half hour of prayer for the different countries.

The services of these groups art in constant demand by the churches and city missions. b r Piige Fifty-six School Choir Daring the past Easter vacation, one of the quartets toured the East, presenting varied programs of sacred music which were closed by short gospel messages. It is estimated that at lealt twelve souls accepted the Lord Jesus Christ and over one hundred and fifty consecrated their lives to more extensive service for Him. The Union City Mission Orchestra consists of eleven Northwestern students who use their instrumental talent for the glory of God in the Gateway district It is their duty to p ay each evening except Saturday at the gospel meetings conducted at that mission I his group has also been engaged for service at the Union City Mission conference grounds during the entire summer. In addition to their regular assignments, they frequently furnish music for banquets, conventions, and other special occasions. Northwestern is a remarkable school in that each individual has an opportunity to gain by experience a knowledge of successful church music. Everyone is required to sing in some choir in the city during his Freshman year. Etc is given the choice of becoming a choir member in a church of his own denomination, or, if he has none, he is assigned to the choir of the First Baptist Church under the direction of Mr. Krieger. The Wednesday evening practice is a pleasure, but still more enjoyable is the privilege of singing each Sunday from the cboir loft ot the great church auditorium. . , . . . Northwestern’s central location affords access to some of Americas finest music. Choirs of near-by churches present cantatas and oratorios: two schools of music within a few blocks of Jackson Hall give frequent concerts; and the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, assisted by world-famed soloists, plays twice a week during the concert season. Northwestern is proud of her music. Although it is not a major subject, it is recognizee and given its proper place. A Bible School is not a conservatory of music, but our teachers recognize the importance of efficient musicians in the Lord ' s work, and sufficient emphasis is placed upon that portion of the curriculum. . . , , “I am profoundly sure that among the divinely ordained instrumentalities for the eon- version and sanctification of the soul, God has not given a greater, besides the preaching oj the Gospel , than the singing of psalms and hymns am! spiritual tongs. I have known a hymn to do God’s work in a soul when every other instrumentality has faded. I could not enumerate the times God has rescued and saved my soul from darkness, discouragement, and weariness by the singing of a hymn, generally by bringing one to my own heart and causing me to sing it to myself. It would be easy to fill many pages with interesting facts m connection with the use of hymns in the public worship of the house of God. 1 hare seen vast audiences melted and swayed by a simple hymn when they have been unmoved by a powerful presentation oj the Gospel from the pulpit.” Dr. Pentecost. Page pifiy-J€Ytti 4 ' Here is the way to Mission Grove, Alice.’ 1 Dorothy guided her car down a winding road along the lake shore. Through the rich green of the foliage I caught my first glimpse of Medicine Lake. We entered the Conference grounds through a wide, tree bordered lane, and came to a stop at the crest of a small hill, beside a large rustic brick building, with a lovely, long veranda running the full length of it, “Here we are at last, Alice. Well leave our luggage in the car until we register and find out where we are going to stay.” “Where do wc register, Dorothy?” “Right here in Little Mother s Inn.” “Why do they call it Little Mother’s Inn? Is it named after the Little Mother who stays at the Union City Mission?” ' Yes, after Mrs. Rose E. Bernard, whom the men at the Mission call Little Mother,” “Where are the dining-room and kitchen located, Dorothy?” I was informed that the entire ground floor of the Inn consists of the bakery, the kitchen, and the dining-room, the latter sealing one thousand people. Do you know, Alice, that all the fresh vegetables and milk served here are supplied by the Mission farm daily, and that it produces its own meat? That’s why we have such delicious meals at so low a price.” The first thing that I noticed as we entered the lobby of Little Mother’s Inn was the rustic furniture. I learned that the tables, chairs, and benches were nil from timber off the farm. Everything about seemed different from anything I had ever seen before. The office is here to the left, Alice. Here is one of the managers. Mr. Francis, Miss White would like to register.” ' 1 low do you do, Miss White? Would you like a private room or—?” b T can’t afford anything very expensive. What are the prices?” “Wc can give you accommodations to fit your purse. A private room here at Little Mother ' s Inn is $9.50 per week, or a room in a cottage, tepee, or igloo is $6,50, and the price is $3.50 if you stay in the domitories. That includes hoard, you know.” I hank you, Mr, Francis. I’ll take a room in the dormitory.” “All right, Miss White, here are your sheets and pillow cases.” “But what shall I do for blankets?” “You will find them in the lodge. We furnish all the bedding. Dorothy will take you to the girls’ lodged’ Page Fifty-riftht Ox Team, Mission Grove On our way to the lodge, 1 was surprised to sec an ox-cart. thought ox-carts belonged to some pre¬ historic day, Dorothy! 1 never saw- a yoke of oxen before.” " We ' ll have to drive to one side until it pass¬ es. We can sec them more closely, and per¬ haps get a ride in otic before wc leave the Con¬ ference, Alice” Our afternoon was spent in a tour of the grounds. We found that the men had been busy with some landscaping. Ten new tepees had been erected. These are raised from the ground, to guard against dampness. There were also three cottages, each with a fireplace. Near the lake stood a large new lgwnm, which has accommodations for about one hundred people. It also boasts a fireplace on the ground floor. We enjoyed a dip in the lake, and watched others at tennis and golf, borne were boating, others fishing or hiking. Dorothy was asked to assist in the instruction classes for the children. These were to be held every morning. As we were returning to the lodge we strolled by the Tabernacle, which stands on the lake shore. It seemed to breathe an air of restfulness cl CtlCC wl i ’J.l “This is where the meetings are held, Alice. What wonderful speakers wc enjoyed last year! Although tiie meetings were almost continually in progress, wc found so much of interest in them that it was a disappointment to miss a single one. “It’s beautiful here, Dorothy. Tell me about this year’s program.” “Dr. Robert G, Lee, of Memphis, Tennessee, who is known to be a great orator, and Ur. Luther Little, of Charlotte, North Carolina, arc to be our speakers. Of course Dr. Riley, Mr. R. L. Moyer, and others from the Northwest will he here. Mr. and Mrs. F. Carlton Booth, of Providence, Rhode Island, are to take charge of the music again.” " And what arc the bonfire devotions 1 of which you spoke, Dor¬ othy?” " I know you ' ll en¬ joy them, Altec. Tn the evening, after the ser¬ vices in the Tabernacle are over, we gather around a huge bonfire just below Mother ' s Inn. There wc build a fire of praise and prayer for the blessings the day has brought to us. Logs of testimony are thrown in, and the fire blazes.

It is a good thins, to idve thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto i hy name, O most High —Psalm 92:3 I T HAS been well said that “We learn in suffering what we teach in song.” and though only a very few can teach in song, yet it is true of us all that our songs are the fruit of our sufferings. The children of Israel would never have sung with such triumph on the shores of the Red Sea but for their previous experience. The furnace of affliction, the recollection ot the taskmasters’ lash, tuned dieir voices as nothing else could. Indeed, ever since the entrance of sin into the world, nothing has been produced apart from toil and travail. The word to the woman was, “In sorrow shah thou bring forth children”; and to the man, “In sorrow shaft thou eat . . . all the days of thy life.” And the mystery wrapped up in that one word sorrow- runs through all the ages and through all human experience. .. . It is sometimes said die angels never sing. Why that is, may be difficult to explain, but as a matter of fact we are never told that they do. We read that at creation all the sons ot God shouted for joy”; at the birth of Jesus they said, “Glory to God m the highest ; and m Revelation V it is recorded that the number of angels was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, laying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb that was S am, etc. But only of the redeemed it says “they sung a new song.” To account for this difference two reasons may he suggested. One is, the angels are not the subjects of redemption; and the first and last songs in Scripture are both connected with redemption. I he other is they have never had the varied experience that belongs to a redeemed sinner, and, as far as we know, they have never suffered. Only of those who have come out of great tribulation is it written: “They stand on the sea of glass mingled with fire, and sing the song of Moses the servant ot God, and the song of the Lamb” (Rev. 15:2, 3). . It is this varied experience which an instrument of ten strings suggests. I o produce the finest music, more than one string Is necessary; and if God is to have the best music from us we must have more than one string to our instrument. Music is what God is seeking to get from us, and all His dealings, however painful, arc only to make it more rich and full. Just as in an ordinary instrument there must he the bass and treble or there would not be perfect harmony, so God brings the darker shades into our life, as well as the sunshine, m order that the deeper tones may not be lacking, in other words, that there may he more strmgs to the instrument . . r j There is one string every Christian must possess—that is salvation. But Crod wants us to have others. He wants us to praise Him with an instrument of ten strmgs. At the end ot Romans IV and at the beginning of chapter V we sec how we are brought to God. I he past is all settled; we have peace. As to the present, we stand in the highest favor with God. As to the future, we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Then the apostle says, “Not on y so, but we glory in tribulations also.” Here is a wonderful thing, to he able to glory m tribulations. To glory, or boast, in the very tiling we most dislike. These very tribulations produce some of the finest music from the saints of God. If you have learned to glory in tribulations, you have another string or two to your instrument, perhaps several, because tribulations are so varied. Look at Paul and Silas in prison, their backs laid open with stripes their feet fast in the stocks, their dungeon dark and unwholesome; yet at midnight they prayed and sang praises unto God. and the prisoners heard them. What sounds to fill such a place and at such a time. Do we know anything of this? Are you. my reader, passing through tribulation m some form or other? It seems a rough pathway to it, perhaps, but ic is that you may sing, that God may (to speak figuratively) add another string, and thus gee music from you such as He has never had before. Perhaps you say, “How can I glory in tribulations? It seems so impossible. Page Sixty-vne One way is by seeing that they can benefit you as nothing else can. The apostle docs not say, Ve glory m tribulations also,” without indicating the method by which it is reached. “Know hc S, V S ’ ™ at tabulation worketh patience, and patience experience, and experience hope.” And another thing we notice is that these tribulations stand in direct relation with the love of (jod thelove of God shed abroad in the heart by the Holy Ghost. This is the climax of the passage. He knew what tribulation could do for him, and so he gloried in it; and more than that, he knew that the one who sent the tribulation loved him perfectly. These two things, the conviction that tribulations are only a blessing in disguise, and that it must be so because the One who permits it all loves us, will enable the weakest saint to glory in them. I i - j V , ‘ fcric | wln g” w lat tribulation can work, and the “knowing” the love which is behind it all, that enables us to praise God. As the psalmist says, “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto Thy name, O most High: to show forth Thy lovmg kindness in the morning, and Thy faithfulness every night, upon an instrument of ten strings. And it God is allowing sorrow after sorrow to enter into your life, and calamities one after another to come upon you “just as if they watched and waited, scanning one another’s motions, when the first descends the others follow”—He is only adding tire strings, which are really your own experience of how He has delivered you and brought you to Himself, of how 1 le loves you, of how He makes all things work together for your good, that thus the music may become more varied and possess greater harmony. The history of Hczekiah presents a fine instance of this very thing. The message comes to him, Thou shaft die, and not live,” and hc turned his face to the wall and wept sore. He afterwards describes his experience at this time. It seemed as though God would make an end ot him Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter, " he says: “I did mourn as a dove- mine eyes fail with looking upward.” But at last he comes to this, “O Lord, I am oppressed; under- take for me. It ls a blessed thing when we turn to the Lord in perfect helplessness and ask Him to help us. And to what did it all lead? At the end, after all the bitter experience, he 15 . ,5V say ’ Ihou llast 111 lovc to m Y soul delivere d it from the pit of corruption”- and again, ' The living, the living hc shall praise Thee, as I do this day . . . therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments .ill the days of our life in the house of the Lord (Isa. 38), He can speak of stringed instruments, for the simple reason that hc knows God as he never knew Him before. Was it not worth the pain? Habakkuk is another example of the same thing. He learns that though everything goes, God remains, Although the fig tree shall not blossom . . . and there shall be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength. And he closes thus: “To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.” Very tew of us, it may be, have this string—to have nothing, and no one but God, and find Him a -su cient, so that we can rejoice in the darkest day. This is a very fine string to have on the instrument: Rejoice in the Lord alway; and again I say, Rejoice.” Have you ever watched a musician and seen how he tightens the strings before com- IncJiang to play? Sometimes he screws and screws until the strings seem as though they would snap. It is to get the right tone. The musician knows what he is about. And docs not God, though He may be dealing with you in much the same way and putting a great strain upon you. t cs, even though, like the apostle, you may seem pressed out of measure, yet He knows how much we can bear. And he knows the effect the pressure will produce. The music will hc all the sweeter. As we survey the past, with all its joys and sorrows, can we not see that God has been stringing the instruments that shall praise Him eternally? May we not begin now and say_ “Praise shall employ these tongues of ours 3 Till we with all the saints above Extol His name with nobler powers. And see the ocean of His love; I hen while jit look and wondering gage We ' ll fill the heavens with endless praise” Page Sixty-tno of Wfcf ‘Report ‘Hour FEW months Live passed and we are at the opening of the Report Hour of a new A. a- semester. Greetings have been exchanged and the entire student body is gathered in the auditorium of Jackson Hall to listen to reports of actual experiences of our own student W ° rk Undcr the direction of Mr. Bass, the gloriously familiar strains of “I Will Praise Him” ring out through the hall, As the last echo dies away, we all with one accord lift our hearts to God in prayer, invoking His blessing on the hour and on each phase of the work to he presented ca[[ q U i e tly disposed of, Mr. Bass begins his exhortation and explanation to the new students. Many have never heard about our report hour and have no idea of its meaning. He explains to them that this is one of the most important and interesting classes in school life. It is in this hour that accounts of practical Christian work arc made. W ork in missions churches, Sunday-schools, summer Bible schools, and personal evangelism is reported. “This Report Hour,” continues Mr. Bass, “is held, that we may know from others the proper way to deal with men in regard to their soul’s salvation. Here you will not only learn the best and most effective ways of presenting the Gospel, but you will know also the blessing that accompanies such an experience in the life of a true child of God. I hese enthusiastic narrations can but inspire us to greater zeal in the service of ‘Him who loved us and gave Himself tor us. “In our recitations for this morning, please point out as nearly as possible, the approach, the Scriptures used, and the final results. “One of our newest activities in the practical work department is the Gospel Gospel Ambassador group. Jane, you were one of the first of the students Ambassadors w j om . perhaps you would like to tell us about it.” “I can’t be slow in telling you of an incident which came to a climax this last week. The Gospel Ambassadors, a group of young people from ail denominations, go from door to door giving out Gospels of John, and tracts for those who have no Bible in the home. In a few sen¬ tences we give our testimony as the Lord definitely guides. We usually open the conversation by saying ‘We have some good news, the good news of salvation.’ Usually we go two and two. Thousands of Gospels and tracts and about 5,000 New Testaments have been given within the territory of two hundred and sixty square blocks, , “Four weeks ago my friends and I knocked at a door of a small apartment. We heard a faint ‘Hello, Come.’ We opened the door and saw a Filipino. He stood in great amazement when he heard of our mission, for lie had known nothing about the Lord Jesus Christ. About a year previously he had come from the Philippine Islands where he had attended a Catholic church. When asked to tell more of this Jesus, we sat down and talked with him as to a small child. We told him of the creation and fall of man, the need of a Savior, the birth of the Lord Jesus, His crucifixion and resurrection, ascension, and His coming again, We also had him memorize John 3:16 and Romans 3:20. He was very happy, and promised to read the New Testa¬ ment which we gave him. ‘Two weeks later we went there again Several of his Fili¬ pino friends were visiting him, and we gave the gospel to them. Shty three because of his faithfulness to his Christian duties and also to his widowed mother, came to my room at the close of the service and said, ‘Howard, one of two things must he done: I must either get victory over a sin in my life which is soul-destroying, or leave the church and give S indent Fa star In all my Christian work I feel I have gone to friends for help, to use my will power.” vice is that sin had ruined the and Satan had tried, by keeping to make him believe he was ah promises to the despairing boy, be settled before you leave the his delivery from bondage, and with a great heart sob, " I will sur- very night victory came and my and working for Him under His in turning a young life to the hear from Frances Goodrich, dren’s missions.” “Last Friday evening Beverly, a little nine-year-old girl, came into the Samuel Moyer Mission with a group of Italian boys. Her hard¬ ened attitude convinced me she must be unsaved. At the close of the meeting I inquired as to what she did with her spare time, and found that she divided it between the Catholic Neighborhood and the theater. I invited her to our afternoon meetings, and upon finding that she wished to learn to play the piano, I told her I would give her lessons. “Saturday morning while she was waiting for me, I heard her singing ‘When the roll is called up yonder, Til be there,’ but upon inquiring I found she was not at all sure she would be there, I showed her from I Tliessalonians IV, that Christ was going to come for His chil¬ dren, and I explained to her that she must consider herself a sinner, for Christ said, ‘All have sinned’ (Rom. 3:23), and that we must ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31) and confess our sins to God (Rom. 10:9:10). She is an intelligent child, and when she under¬ stood the Scriptures, she accepted Christ as her Savior” “Praise the Lord! Wonderful! Oh, how the Lord rejoices when a child comes unto Him.

In a short time, a woman sat beside me. She very sneeringly asked, ‘Have you been to church? I replied, T haven ' t, but I love to read the Bible any time? She told me that she didn’t care for God or anything connected with Him, I let her talk on until I had a chance to say a word, when 1 quietly answered, ‘You may say that you hate God, nevertheless, God loves and cares for you. He is personally interested in you? She remained silent for a while, and I selected two tracts explaining salvation. One was entitled, The Gift of God ' s Love? At last she turned to me, saying, T have been thinking of your words—how God really loves me? When she left I offered her the tracts, which she gladly received and promised to read. She seemed much relieved to know there was a God who loved iicr.” “I am especially glad to hear this report. I’ve emphasized again and again the importance of giving out tracts. Often we do not hear of results but God has promised us that His Word ‘shall not return void.’ Many times we can use a tract when there is no other means of approach ?’ Foreign Work — Chinese 8 iV. W. Students Engaged “I know that the new students will be interested in the work which Northwestern carries on among the foreigners in our city. First let us hear from Sally MacDonald, who teaches in the Chinese Sun¬ day-school? 1 “We have a children’s group and a young men’s class there. Young men are taught the Bible and the English language every Sunday, and we have many occasions to rejoice. Although progress is very slow, nevertheless, we are rewarded after months of faithful service. “I had been instructing one of the Chinese boys for almost eight months, before a definite change took place in his heart. Last fall I began to teach him that matchless verse concerning God’s love, John 3:16. Each Sunday we took a verse dealing with Gods great love for sinners, or the sinner’s great need of a Savior. I explained each verse as well as I could with the aid of a Chinese Bible, and a Chinese-English dictionary, trusting that God would bring tire message home to his heart. “One Sunday, after we had had our opening prayer together, I felt especially burdened for him, and from his attitudel knew that the Holy Spirit was working in his heart, 50 I asked him if he would accept the Lord Jesus Christ as His Savior. In his sincere and humble manner, he bowed his head, and said in a few broken words, ‘I love Jesus; I want Jesus for my Savior. I prayed while he yielded his heart to the Lord. His submission brought a new glow of light on his face. We had a happy time over the Scriptures chat day. “The following Sunday this Chinese boys face was radiant, and it has remained so since then. In our class the first thing he said to me before I was seated was, ' Miss MacDonald, no English please, just Bible? He is an inspiration to the entire school. Praise the Lord! God is faithful? 5 “Louise, you Spanish Work work in the Span- 12 Student Teachers ish district. What have you to re¬ port this morning?” “We have been having some blessed times at the Spanish mission. God has been sending the children in very well. Of course, our group changes often, for these Chinese Bible Class Page Sixty five people arc quite transient. Anyway, I would like to ask you to remember us definitely in prayer When our mission first opened, the Sanches children were our most faithful ones, and during the first year little Carmen was saved. Carmen is such a good little Christian. When the baby died, she said, ‘I know he has gone to be with Jesus because he hadn ' t made any sins yet.’ But the father in the family is a Communist, and the grandmother, a Catholic, and they have grown in their opposition to our work. At first we held our Bible class in their home, but that was soon stopped. Later the children were forbidden to come to the Sunday-school, and now we arc practically refused entrance into the home. Whenever we do come, the grandmother or the father calls the children to do some work, so we never have an opportunity to speak to them. Carmen, especially, would like to come to our meetings. One day on the street she saw my associate, Miss Johnson, and ran a block and a half to walk with her. 11 ‘Oh, Miss Johnson she said, ‘Wish we could have the class at our house again. ' “ Tin sorry, Carmen, but you know why we can’t.’ “ ‘Yes, I know—my father won ' t let you. ' u We pray that some way we may be able to have these children, for they cling to us. Please remember us before Him, Who loved the little children ’ “We surely will, Louise. How r many classes do you have now?” i( Wc meet Thursday, Friday, and Sunday afternoons at our Spanish Mission up north, and then we have a Mexican class, out near Minnehaha, on Saturday afternoons ’ “Ruth, what about the Bible class you and Alice have? I believe Alice Mid-week and Ruth have caught the vision of the purpose of a mid-week Bible class. Iitble Classes Ruth, explain just how you conduct it.” “The boys and girls at the First German Baptist Church have realized as never before that God honors His word. At first we had a group of nine to whom we taught the precious truths of the Bible. We began by stressing man ' s fallen state, by giving to them the story of the fall of Adam and Eve, and God ' s provision for salvation as recorded in the third chapter of John. One by one the children became convicted of their sin, and in faith they accepted Christ. We had the joy of seeing eight of our class baptized. “Now ' we have four new members, and wc arc trusting God ' s promise for the conversion of these also. Spanish Mission If you would visit us on Wednesday evening, you would find the children seated on small chairs around a low table, ready and eager for the class to begin. Our meetings are always opened with a season of prayer offered by the saved ones. Each week we study the life of some Old Testa¬ ment character for memory work, and review those that we have already had. We weave in the lesson from God ' s Word, taking such topics as Temptation ‘Satan trying to destroy Christ ‘Satan trying to destroy the Christian, ' etc. The chil¬ dren bring their Bibles and locate the Scripture as it is given, that they may see the truth. “We arc happy to report that the testimonies and prayers of these youngsters indicate that they arc walking and talking with their Savior, and that they do have a missionary spirit which will, no doubt, bear fruit for eternity ’ “Surely, we need to teach children the value of the Bible and the truths that lie in it, for today, as never before, Satan is attacking the Christian, especially as to the veracity of the Book.” Sixtyaix of Personal “Arthur came in and reported an unusual personal experience, Vd like Evangelism to have him repeat it to all of you, U I work in a down-town restaurant. Last Wednesday night, about three o ' clock, a man came in and asked for some coffee. He said that he was very hungry and had no friends to whom he could go for food or help. At the time he was partially under the influence of alcohol. U I gave him something to eat, and led of the Spirit, I talked. Before very long he was sober enough so that T thought T could deni with him. I asked him about his soul, and he told me that he thought he was a Christian, Such a statement from n drinking man startled me, hut I listened as he went on. He told me of his experience in the World War, and showed me numerous scars of wounds he had received. His story was one of suffering, agony, and pain almost unbearable. After the war he lay in a hospital for fifteen months. Upon being dis¬ charged from that institution, he was broken-spirited. Dejected, lonely, bruised and battle- scarred, seemingly without a friend in the world, he went out. and in a very short time began to drink. He confessed that the habit grew upon him so that from the first day he had known very few sober hours. His father had been dead for some time and his Christian mother had just recently passed on to glory. He showed me a letter she had written him shortly before she died, in which she plead with him to become a Christian and stop drinking. " ‘I think I am a Christian even if I am a drunkard,’ he said, Tve tried to quit. I haven’t a friend in the world. What can I do?

I also read Romans 3 :23 to prove that we have all sinned, I told him he did have a friend in Jesus, the Friend of friends—the One f that sticketh closer than n brother, ' Then I turned to John 3:16, 17, 18, and 36 to show him that he must make a decision. He became very interested We then went to Isaiah 1:18 where God says, f . . , though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow . . , J He saw there that regardless of his condition in sin, if he would accept the Lord Jesus, God would cleanse and forgive. By this time we were alone in the restaurant, so I locked the door and asked him to come into the hack room. There we knelt in prayer. I prayed first. When I had finished, he broke into tears and sobbed out a simple confession of faith. Then and there he gave his heart to Christ. A positive acceptance was clearly evidenced. I gave him my Bible with several important passages marked in it, and he went on his way, new creature in Ch rist ,” Downtown Missions “Contacts with the homeless men of the city grip our hearts.

See them as they go, falling prostrate on the ground, measuring their length, rising and again falling until they reach their destination. There they reverently kiss the Black Stone, run thrice around the Kaaba, walk around it four times, then run seven times to a neighboring hill. But ah is vanity and emptiness, Hark! what are those bells I hear? Those strains come from Buddhist temples in Japan. Thousands of worshippers have bought prayers from priests, and arc now ringing the hells to attract the attention of the gods, who arc cither asleep or absent. Alas! these gods arc lifeless and cannot respond. Cross the sea to China and picture the dutiful Confucianist, bowed before an ancestral tablet, burning paper prayers to their departed spirits. Note the great number of beggars. Devotion to ancestral graves keeps the population in one place until it overflows, while other fertile fields are neglected. Visualize the multitudes of diseased, sin-burdened Hindus as they bathe in the Ganges River. See them at death, clinging to a cow ' s tail, seeking salvation. Hinduism has a temple named “Lust” where young girls arc married to its gods. Prostitution in the name of religion! Do you, as a child, recall your fear of the dark? Imagine the Animist in slavish tear of spirits in every object, living or dead. Attend with us a chiefs funeral. The hole is dug and several of his living wives are laid on the bottom with the chiefs head reclining in the arms of his favorite wife. At his feet, a kneeling slave presents him his pipe and tobacco. Earth is thrown over living and dead, and thus they enter eternity. Complete this picture with that of the deceived Romanist millions of Europe and South America. Because they know not the message of the risen Christ, they bow before effigies of the Savior on the cross, and pay with sacrifice, great prices for indulgences, penances, and assurance that someone is almost out of purgatory. The hopeless despair of heathendom gives way to light as we turn to Christianity. The Christian has found the answer to the anguished sinner’s wail in God s Word, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” The Christian is assured of forgiveness, power over sin, and future perfection when he will be like the Savior. Christianity regenerates and ennobles every believer. A coal-black saint of God helped administer the elements of die Lord’s Supper in a fine church. In his testimony he said, “It is but a few years since I ate human flesh and drank human blood. Today I minister the sacred symbols of my Lord ' s broken body.” Christianity dignifies human life. Turn from the dist ress of all heathen lands and visit with me one of the fine hospitals of our country where loving hands seek to soothe and heal broken bodies, restore the ill, and save life. Why the difference? Because Christianity is a religion of love. The Christian seeks enlightenment and knowledge. The Puritan ideal, that education is next to religion, has always been characteristic of Christianity. While heathen lands are steeped in ignorance, Christianity moves forward. After this brief contrast of the fruitage of religions, will any reader say of the pagans, “Leave them alone; their religions are sufficient”? Should not our earnest prayer he that their lives too might come into the light of Christianity?

The missionary proceeded to make the way of salvation just as clear as his limited vocabulary would allow. Thereupon Buba declared his intention to follow the Lord Jesus. Several visits were made to the home of this anxious inquirer, and Buba proved his sincer¬ ity by casting aside the Mohammedan rituals to which he had for years been bound. He broke the fasting during the great fast month and partook of food openly in the market place. But far more important was his refusal to say “Salla,” or the Mohammedan prayers, and his deter¬ mination to pray to God in the name of the Lord Jesus. But, alas! no mallam, or priest, will allow his subjects to so easily turn from the Mohammedan faith, When one of the mallams heard that Buba had discontinued “Salla,” he immediately sought to know the reason, and, therefore, he went directly to Buba for information. The mallam first searched Buba ' s pockets for the rosary but did not find it, “Have you forgotten or lost it?” asked the Mallam. “I have neither forgotten nor lost it,” came the reply. “Where then is it?” was the next question. Very candidly Buba answered, L I threw it away. I have stopped ‘Salla’.” The mallam told Buba to im¬ mediately purchase a new one, hut the request remained unheeded. Later the mallams sent out a warning that they would not bury a person who refused to say “Salla,” and painted vivid pic¬ tures of hyenas and vultures mak¬ ing short work of a dead man. Buba remained calm and resolute. His answer to all this was one of faith, for in speaking to the Chris¬ tians, he said, “You arc my friends. If you do not wish to Worshipping toward Mecca Pdge Seventy A Native Christian bury me, it will not make much difference to me, for I will not feel the vultures. I shall be with the Lord ” One of the great events in the social life of the Mohammedans is the naming of children, at which time the niallam is called in to kill the fadings used in the feast. When one of Buba s four wives {the number allowed by Mohammedan law) presented him with a child, he refused to have the naming ceremony. Buba lias told his wives that since he decided to follow the Lord, it would mean that he would have to put away three of them- In answer to this, the only request of the women was that they he brought back safely to their people. Only the workings of the Holy Spirit can effect such a change as was wrought in this mans life, but the fervent prayers of righteous men will avail much in keeping this man “steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord !

Its teachings relate only to this earthly life. It teaches that all men are born good, that man must master his own destiny) that rewards and punishments are received in this life, and that knowledge of the hereafter is impossible. Great emphasis is placed on devotion to ancestors. Confucianism ignores Godexalts man, teaches salvation by merit , degrades women and grants the father tyrannical authority over his family. Their worship is observed on the first and fifteenth days of every month, at which time anything from a pig to a roll of silk h offered. In case of illness, all manner of raid is made upon the patient. Instead of quiet, deep wailing is made from fear of death. After death, the people seek to call the soul back. Paper money is scattered on the way to the grave to detract the spirits from following the corpse ‘Pastor ‘Hsi |NE of the tenderer and most gripping of a!! Christian biographies is that of Pastor Hsi as recorded by Mrs, Howard Taylor. Hsi was a wealthy man and a brilliant Confucianist scholar, A serious illness overtook him, and he turned to the opium pipe for relief. He soon realized the truth of the saying, “It is not the man that eats the opium, but the opium that eats the man.” Studies, business, care of property, pursuit of profession—all alike were forgotten. He lived but to smoke opium. The inevitable result followed. He became a complete wreck, and for a whole year and a half never (eft his couch. During lucid intervals between the intoxication of the poison, he was plunged into depths of misery, remorse, and despair. At times he struggled to conquer the craving that was killing him, but in vain, Relentless as a vulture, the vice, to which he had yeilded, now had him in its grip. But God brought the unexpected to pass, and he went to live in the home of the mission¬ ary, David Hill, The godly life of this man made a profound impression on the heart-hungry, disappointed, sin-bound Confusianist. Mr. Hill said little, but prayed much. Hsi began to pour over his New Testament for hours at a time. Gradually it dawned upon his soul that the wonderful suffering Christ of the Bible had something personally to do with him, with his sorrow, sin, and need. The very presence of God overshadowed him. Then suddenly, as he himself records, the Holy Spirit influenced his soul, and with tears that wouldn’t cease, he bowed and yielded himself unreservedly to the world s Redeemer, his Saviour and his God, HsPs first love for his new-found Savior was a deep one; yet, in those early days, he was but a babe in spiritual things. For a considerable length of time following his conversion he continued to keep in his front hall a tablet in which was sup¬ posed to be one of the three spirits of his first wife. The thought had never occurred to him, that to keep the tablet which he had ceased to worship was to compromise with evil. One morning he beheld the almost sacred object lying, face downward upon the ground, the base having been gnawed away by rats. He restored it to its accustomed place. A few days later there was a recurrence of this incident. Deeply per- Btiming Paper Prayers Page Sevctity-1 wq plexed, he took the matter to God in prayer. Very clearly it dawned upon him that the whole system of ancestor worship was idolatrous and that, as a Christian, he could have nothing further to do with it As a man of God, recalling his own recent, in¬ satiable craving for opium, his heart went out to the opium sufferers of China. Through prayer, God used him to open up a number of opium refuges. He compounded his own medicine, but the ultimate cure from this enslaving habit was, be knew, the power of God. In seeking to help these unfortunate victims, lie was enabled to point many to the Savior. Only the judgment scat of Christ will reveal the thousands of souls brought to the Savior through this one devoted Confucianist convert.

From the early worship of deified powers of na ure, gradually developed the idea of one supreme being, called Brahm.

As these held no significance or interest for Kim, lie later turned his attention to literature and design, i ari assailed by skepticism and confronted by the profound problem. What is life? He turned first to philosophy to discover the way of life more fully, but he found no peace nor provision for his spirit. He next turned to religion, and read every religious book he could get except those on Christianity, a religion he had catfy been taught to despise. 1 o a Japanese, Christianity was the lowest and most superstitious of faiths, a pure invention of devils. He next sought the truth from the famous priests in and around Kanazawa but found no light. In desperation, he decided to solve the riddle of the universe by death Hie hrst three attempts to end his life resulted in failure, and the fourth time God inter vened. On his way to the railroad tracks where he planned to cast himself in front of a train, Masuzah San met a group of missionaries who were holding a service. He was disgusted to behold such a sight on his way to a pure death. He said to himself, " They are preaching a demon religion. ’ As he started to run away, a single sentence thrust itself upon his tortured conscience: “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” He thought, “I am heavy laden and suffer and struggle. Demon religion or whatever it is, I will go and listen to it, if it will take away my heavy huidem Hastening back and throwing himself before the preacher, he begged, “Please save me. I am tired of life— crushed with a load winch I cannot carry? 1 The preacher led him into his private room and pointed him to the Savior, Who alone could save him from his sins. Soon after his conversion, he enrolled in a Christian training school, after which he entered service for his Lord.

To Mr. Kcizo Shimura, as to many other young people, the non-Christian reli¬ gion, Buddhism, meant nothing, When he was but twenty years old Shimura entered an English Bible class at Osaka. As a result of the teaching he received here, fvlr. Shunura realized,, as lie himself relates, that he had been wandering in the midst of darkness. He knew chat his life was sinful and insecure without a Savior. Thus he went to Christ for cleansing, there finding the light, comfort, and joy that his heart had sought. His testimony in regard to his transformation was expressed by the words, “What a wonderful change has been wrought since Jesus came into my heart. Mr Shimura is a successful business man and through all the trials and temptations of his business, he finds a sufficient strength in his Redeemer. Shortly after his conversion, Mr. Shimura expressed hh desire to live for Christ through¬ out his life and to do his part in bringing others to the fountain of Life. Those who know ' him say he is steadfast in his purpose, for he is active and dependable in the service of the Lord. His spirituality makes him an influential worker among the men. That Mr, Shimura has a vision of ' the need of Japan is dearly seen in Ids own words when he says, “Each year the population of Japan increases about one million. I do not worry about the rapid increase of our population for I am not a food commissioner, but the thing that seriously concerns me is the fact that these million souls are destined to wither unless Christian work penetrates their souls,” J A PAN’S startling progress has deceived many into thinking that her people have had an adequate opportunity to hear the Gospel. They have not. Less than one-half of one per cent of Japan’s people have declared their faith in Christ. This is a rebuke to every man and woman who know ' s His redeeming love, Contrary to popular conception surging mobs in the great cities, broken-hearted women in homes, despondent girls in factories and in black dens of sin, perplexed students, drudging farmers, thou¬ sands of deep sea fishermen, appealing little chil¬ dren—all perish without the life-giving touch of the Redeemer.

Besides a side mother, various household duties claimed her time and attention, There was com to he pounded for arepas (corn biscuit). Clothes had to be washed in large wooden troughs. They were then beaten against the rocks to a satisfying whiteness, and dried in the sun. Her week-days were filled with home activities, but on Sundays she was present at the chapel. Eagerly she drank in that strange new doctrine which was so different from anything she had ever heard before. After some weeks, Geralda respond¬ ed to the Spirit’s pleading, and the repentance of one more sinner caused joy in heaven. She obtained a New Testament, which she eagerly read whenever she had an opportunity. Ger a Ida ' s mother and friends did not favor this change in her life hut their jeers and threats did not prevent her faith in her Lord and His Word from growing. One day Geralda was summoned to her mother ' s room and informed she was to be given in common law marriage to a wealthy man. The mother hoped to relieve her financial burden by this arrangement. To this fifteen-year-oid girl, so recently saved, the plan was diabolical and terrifying. But surely God would not fail her at this crucial hour; nor did He! In a very short time Gera Ida ' s mother died. She passed into a lost eter¬ nity, despite the efforts of Geralda and several missionaries to A Roman Worshiper Page ScYOtty-Oj’bt w £faif m: mJi p 5 point her to the Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of the world. After her mother ' s death, Geralda came to live in the mission home where she remained until her marriage. This event was the beginning of a new testing time for the dear girl for shortly after their marriage the husband decided to return to Roman¬ ism. By her firmness, Geralda finally won her hus¬ band back to the faith and for several months their home was very happy. Then one day her husband returned home and announced he had become a Spiritist. Geralda was given the choice of embrac¬ ing the same doctrine or being left alone to support herself and two babies. To the frail young wife and mother, the test seemed fiery indeed; but her faith, so often tested, had become immovable. Her husband might forsake her, but her God, never! To this day, her life is a living epistle of the saving and keeping power of J esus Christ. " That soul though all hell should endeavor to shake, III never, no never, no never forsake.

Offerings are given to these souls , as well as to the spirits of earth and sky■ Their individual souls me recognized as gods. I he operation of the universe is carried on by the influence of spirits. The Heaven or High-god, as he is called, is thought of as the soul of the sky ■ He is eternal and omniscient and never abuses his power. He is the founder of moral laws, rewarding the good and punishing the wicked by disease and death. He is not worshipped in temples or by images but addressed in spontaneous prayer and given offerings of first fruits. The Animist knows nothing of man ' s free will; man is as he is and cannot be changed. Sin is caused by the anger of the gods against their wrong-doing. Tjhe first Communion Service at Aniwa J OHN G. PATON, pioneer missionary to Aniwa, one of the South Sea Islands, relates this couching incident of the first communion service, three years after his arrival there: In t he examination only twelve natives of that heathen world gave evidence of a persona! experience of salvation and a desire to follow Jesus. After prayer and careful instruction, at their own urgent request, they were solemnly dedicated in prayer to be baptized. Beginning with the old chief, the twelve came forward and Paton baptized them. Prayer followed, and in the name of the Holy Trinity, the Church of Christ of Aniwa was formally constituted. After further instruction concerning the Holy Institution and a prayer of thanksgiving and consecration, the Lord’s Supper was administered—the first time since the island of Aniwa had been heaved out of its coral depths! A new communion service, given by the South Mel¬ bourne Church, was used. Paton says, “As I put the bread and wine into those dark hands, once stained with the blood of cannibalism, but now stretched out to receive and partake of the emblems and seal of the Redeemer s love, I had a foretaste of the joy I will experience when I look on the glorified face of Jesus Himself.’ Paton had the joy of seeing all of this cannibal island turn to Christ. of our graduales has gone to the Islands!

We believe these two purposes have been amply fulfilled by our organization, and with the addition of each graduating class wc look on to greater results. We number more than 550, with rep¬ resentatives all over the world. Who can tell the blessing that has come to the saved and unsaved, through the ministry of our graduates? We must continue to pray for one another, for the adversary is strong, but “Greater is he that ts in you, Lhan he that is in the world.” Our annual Homecoming will take place, the Lord willing, October 29 and 30. Last year w e had a blessed time of fellow¬ ship, profitable to all, with a large attendance. This year, wc will have even greater blessing, for we will have with us 50 new mem¬ bers of the class of T 34. The officers welcome suggestions that will make the meetings more helpful to a greater number, and ask you to begin praying now for our Homecoming, The Alumni Memorial Scholarship of fifty dollars, awarded each year to the junior selected by the executive committee in conjunction with the faculty, has been the means of encouraging better scholarship on the part of the students, and has helped needy students to continue their preparation for Christian service. In 1932, Ralph Hill, of Lewiston, Minnesota, was awarded the scholarship; in 1933, two students were eligible, so it was divided, and given to George Kraft, Minneapolis, and Carrie Swytcr, Steamboat Rock, fowa. In the past year, three of our number have gone to be with the Lord. Rev Alfred Ham, 09; Rev. William Taylor, 25; and Rev. Clifford Bartel, ’28. Of each one we can say “That he pleased God,” and “The Lord took him.” Pdgc Eighly-thrtc A group of happy Christians at Medicine Lake. Mr. Stcffenson in center . holding guitar. The majority of our men graduates become pastors. Their work is much the same, vary ing somewhat with the locality and the type of people. One characteristic of our graduates is their eagerness to go into hard fields, usually shunned by those seeking large salaries and well-filled pews. Many of our men have opened churches long closed through indiffer dice and sin. Last summer, at the Northwest¬ ern Conference at Medicine Lake, the audi¬ ence were moved to tears as they listened to the thrilling testimonies of a group of young people from St. Francis, a small town north of Minneapolis, John Stcffenson, ’31, began preaching in the Baptist church there during his senior year at Northwestern♦ This church had been without a resident pastor for years, and a more godless community would be hard to find. Absolute ignorance of God and His righteousness led to the vilest sins, the least of which was bootlegging, Mr. Stcffenson began to work with the chil¬ dren, the easiest to reach, and soon led several to the Lord. In a short time, the saved chil¬ dren brought their parents, and some of the adults were saved. A hardened bootlegger was won through his daughters testimony. Today, his truck, which formerly carried liquor under concealing vegetables, is used to transport Gospel teams to surrounding towns. An orchestra of home talent drawls many to the church services. Mr, Stcffenson gives free music lessons on stringed instruments, and has a group of thirty who play to the glory of God in the gospel services. Satan’s forces oppose the Lord s messengers, and power is found only in prayer. Mrs. Stef- fenson has often gone at six o ' clock in the morning to pray with young converts before they attend high school, in order that they may withstand the temptations of the day. Mr. Steffenson w r ritcs; u We receive much op¬ position from Satan and his forces; but we have the promise that " the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church of Jesus Christ’.” One of the most potent forces of the Christian is prayer, and the church at St. Francis knows how to pray. The prayer meet¬ ings are the largest services of the week, and young and old seek Gods favor on their knees. Page Eighty-jour of €i vist$ PHILLIP’S DAUGHTERS Wc bring you now a different picture. The young women graduates are not all pastor ' s wives. Many are filling important positions in various fields, and wc present here a few of the interesting types of work that arc open to our graduates. As church missionary of the First Swedish Baptist Church of Minneapolis, Elsie Viren, 7 27, seldom finds time hanging heavily on her hands. She combines her secretarial duties with teaching and visitation. Her classes com¬ prise a religious instruction class for hoys and girls on Saturday mornings, a Sunday-school class of adults, and a class for women on Thursday evenings. After a morning in the church office, taking dictation, typing, filing, making records, Miss Viren goes out to visit the sick, the needy, new members, non-mem¬ bers, and anyone who requires a calk She gives comfort, material aid, and spiritual food. She also serves on various committees in an ad¬ visory capacity, attends all services of the church, and helps to direct the young people ' s society. In all of her work she is serene, tact¬ ful, helpful, and dependent on her Master. Her sole motive is the love of Christ, her atm, His glory. In Chicago, Illinois, Ruth Gauf, 5 28, is sec¬ retary to the superintendent of the Chicago Christian Industrial League. In this institu¬ tion, homeless men and women are given the gospel in addition to temporal aid. Thirty-nine different industries are operated, enabling the men to earn their way and maintain their self- respect. Miss Gauf’s work is in the office, where she handles the case records o f all w r ho enter the institute. She could relate countless interesting incidents of the w r ork, and wc give one here. The kind of men varies from the lowest of the hobo type to college graduates who have lost their grip through sin. A man with five scholastic degrees, broken in body and soul, came to the institute. At one time nationally known as an educator, because of an unfaith¬ ful wife, he had sunk into the pit of sin, and wanted to die, Christ lifted him, and today he is in a seminary, studying the Word of God. ‘The most important part of our work is the presentation of the Gospel. Last year wc conducted 1,434 services, including services in the institution, Bible classes, county jail, gos¬ pel team and pulpit supplies. As a result of these meetings, 1,000 people knelt at the altar and were dealt with personally. " Since graduating, Sadie Busse, 26, has been preaching the gospel in neglected areas. She is now at Nisswa, Minnesota, and writes as follows: “We arc in a summer resort region and Nisswa, as a tow r n, is very small. Our popu¬ lation is not much over a hundred and twen¬ ty-five, and because of the nearby farms and resorts we have a large group of people to deal with. At our Bible school last summer ten denominations were represented. Many of our people are not familiar with altar calls, but they are gradually becoming less afraid, and many have responded to the Master ' s ‘Come unto me7 One of these, the father of three sweet children, w f as known for miles around as a blasphemer and drunkard. Today, through the grace of God, he is a teacher in the Sunday-school, and an earnest, praying Christian. Another young man, who spent his evenings drinking and carousing, now h finds his Sadie Basse and Henrktte Rodgers Page Ei%fny-five greatest happiness in studying the Word of God. There are others whom the Spirit of God has wooed unto the Savior, and we praise Him because He is thc same yesterday, to¬ day, and forever Henrietta Rodgers, 28, who works with me, plays the piano and leads the choir. We have a Sunday-school, preaching services and Bible study on Wednesday nights at Nisswa. In addition, we hold a service in a schoolhousc on Sunday afternoon and Bible study there on Tuesday. We are in constant touch with our people through visitation, and the parsonage is seldom without callers. Although we are not under a board of any kind, we find every need supplied according to His Word. We are well-cared for, and are very happy in the service of the King.” SAVED IN A BLIZZARD Can you picture a Montana prairie? The churches are few and far between; many peo¬ ple never attend a service, and most of the children are growing up without any Chris¬ tian instruction. One woman, fifty years old, did not know that there was an Old Testa¬ ment in the Bible. Mr, and Mrs. Oliver Enerson, ' 26, left a pleasant church in Iowa, to answer the cry from this Montana prairie, f Comc over and help us. As colporter missionaries, they arc Called upon to travel many weary miles over roads that are either gumbo or cattle paths. They go from place to place, testifying and selling Bibles, giving them aw ay when the people are too poor to buy. In the summer months they hold several series of evangelistic meetings and vacation Bible schools. During die winter they spend their time in colportage work and hold meet¬ ings when they are able to get through the drifts to their fields. Last winter they started a young peoples society by mail. A young man was deeply touched one night by the song, “No Room in the Inn,” He later sang it with his brother at a gathering. When they were half through the song, the Holy Spirit said to Oliver and Grace Enerson him, kl How can you sing this song and plead with these people to ' give him welcome free when you have not yet given Him room in your heart?” He could go no further; he then and there gave Christ room in his heart, and passed from death unto life, Mr. Enerson holds meetings at Beaubier, Canada, in a bare, dreary halh One night, about sixty people had gathered to hear the gospel, when a blizzard began, and as they were eighty-five miles from home they were forced to spend the night in the halh The time was not wasted, however, for they had the joy of leading two young men to Christ chat night. Somebody ' s home SOWING THE SEED Not all of the missionaries are across the sea. In Northern Minnesota eighteen North¬ western graduates are “holding forth the Word of life.” Mr. Harry Westbcrg, Mrs. Westberg and their two small sons went to C)rr, Minn., in June 1933, Orr is situated in the heart of a mining district. Three-fourths of all the iron ore pro¬ duced in the United States is mined within its borders. Mr. Westberg says the iron has touched fcige Light y-vx the hearts of the people, for they are hard to reach One of the biggest opportunities for pro¬ claiming the gospel has been granted by the Civilian Conservation Camps. Four young men have been saved and are giving their tes¬ timonies. A striking conversion was that of a young man who was miraculously spared from death in an automobile collision. So convicted was he of his lost condition that he accepted Christ as his Savior, He returned to the camp to bear testimony of Ids Lord. This is a faith work, God has always sup¬ plied the need, although for a week the food of the missionaries consisted of blueberries and bread. One day the missionary had five cents to spend for food. On the way to the store, his son lost the nickel. Since that time of testing, the Lord has provided more abun¬ dantly. Mr. Westberg writes: “Many, many have never heard and are lost, God still answers prayer. Will you pray and weep with us for them? Psalm 126:6, Tie that goeth forth and weepeth; bearing precious seeds, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him? “In six and one-half months we have con¬ ducted ninety preaching services with a total attendance of 2,133; also, twenty-nine Sun¬ day-schools with a total attendance of 619, and fifty-nine Bible study classes with a total attendance of 623. Besides this we have visited in many homes, varying from squalid hovels to stately mansions There are none too high or none too low ' to need the Savior. of Christ NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD One would scarcely believe that this so- called Christian nation has vast sections des¬ titute of the blessed message of salvation. Peter Flaming, ' 32, and Mrs. Flaming (Elsie Lehman, ' 32), working at Burlington, Colcv rado, tel! of an open field unlimited as to mileage, where there are no churches or mis¬ sion halls except in the small towns along the railroad. The preaching services are held in schoolhouses when available, or in homes The most fruitful type of work is visitation, and results from personal work have been seen. In their own words we give the story of one conversion. “As we stumbled along over the snow ' -cov¬ ered road, Anathasia, a pretty little Greek woman, turned to us and said, " It spring in my country. The almond trees in bloom? As w r e came to the parting of the ways she said wistfully, " You come sec me soon?’ We made it soon. Anarhasia can speak very little Eng¬ lish, but she eagerly took down the Greek Bible, and read aloud from the passages we found for her We explained as best we could how she must cake Jesus into her heart. “ Me see Me no Christian yet. Some¬ time? Mr and Mrs . Westberg “ ' But it is not safe to wait? “ " Yes, me know. May die. Jesus may come Maybe I do it next time you come? “But the next time she was still unsaved Again we pleaded with her, telling her that all she needed to do w r as come. u " Yes she said, ‘me know. Just ask, and Fie come right in. Then be happy. But not now? “We left, praying that God would work in her heart The next day was Bible class day, Page joy we saw Anathasia coming down with her baby on a sled. As soon as the sled safely in, we whispered, You r she smiled, ' all tight now.’ She had at His word, “When we dealt with her husband, she pleaded, ' No put off. Do now, 1 “There arc other souls that seem near the kingdom. There are souls that plead, ' Come soon again. I know I am not ready They are all souls for whom Christ died. The work is too big for us, and the souls coo many, but we have the Lord, and His Word: ' With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible .” Matt. 19:26. WITNESSING IN THE LAKE REGION Gust H. Dahlberg, ' 27, who was a success ful salesman before he heard the call of God, has been pastor for four and one-half years of the First Baptist Church of Park Rapids, Minnesota. He relates some highlights of his ministry: “In the years here, much of the material taught at Northwestern has been used with great profit in our Bible classes. As a result of this teaching, six of our young people are now attending the Northwestern Bible School. One of our number, Florence Wright, 5 32, is a missionary in Colombia, S. A, “The young people are responsible for gos¬ pel team work in the outlying communities. We serve a territory of 3,300 square miles. Meetings are held on Sunday afternoons in the County J iome for the Poor Visits arc made to the Walker Sanatorium, 30 miles away. Wc conduct meetings in school houses Mr. and Mrs Dahlberg ami children north and south of us. Usually, on Thursday evenings we hold a gospel service in one of the Civilian Conservation Camps. “A young married man with a family, liv¬ ing in the ctit-over region north of us, had attended the meetings in the school house there. One day a friend gave him the book, From Crime to Christy and asked him to read it. With mild interest he began reading, but the message of the book soon gripped him, and one day he left his little home of tar-papered slabs to walk into the woods, tak¬ ing the book with him, Sitting down on a stump, he finished the volume, and for some time sat thinking. He compared himself with the chief char acter of the book, and conclud¬ ed that if this man needed a Savior, so did he. Tears of repentance sprang to his eyes, and, falling to his knees beside the stump of a northern pine, he said, ' If Christ can save such a man, He can save me.’ Then lie poured out his heart to God and surrendered himself to the only One Who could save him. Joy¬ fully he returned to his little home to tell his wife. She, too, accepted Christ. Tears were on many faces as lie witnessed in the waters of baptism to death, burial, and resurrection with Christ. 1 V ‘History and £ocation 1TN 1902 the Northwestern Bible and Missionary Training School bad its beginning with a student body of seven members. Three professors constituted the faculty. In 1904, the building now used as the Freshmen Boys’ Dormitory was purchased and used for both class- room H ind living quarters. The School grew rapidly. 1923 saw the realization of a dream long cherished by Dr, Riley—the erection of Jackson Hall which has since provided adequate class¬ rooms and administration offices for the present school Today we have a student body of 450, in day and evening classes, with a faculty of twenty-one. In spite of the growth in numbers, the personal, intimate fellowship between students and the personal contact with the faculty that have always characterized Northwestern, have not been last. It is altogether possible to become acquainted with everyone in the school, and to maintain a friendly relationship with a wide circle. These very facts have led many to choose Northwestern in preference to any ocher school as a place to study God ' s Word. Our school offers one of the most complete courses of study in the English Bible that can be procured. While not neglecting any of the essentials in a complete training course, we m H ijor upon the English Bible and the English language. Aside from the regular staff of able teachers, some of die best Bible scholars of the world come to us with special lectures. Our buildings are exceptionally well located from several viewpoints. The school itself is in the heart of Minneapolis just five short blocks from the center of the business district. I he Public Library is adjacent, affording ready access to any research work desired. Three minutes away is the Y, M. C A,, which, at small cost, affords opportunity for abundance of recreation and exercise. One of the city ' s most beautiful spots is Loring Park, and it is at the very doors of our dormitories on Harmon Place. A walk through the park and around the lake in die afternoon or evening rests and refreshes the mind for study. Northwestern is also ideally situated to enable students to train for all phases of Christian work. Church, Sunday-schools, hospitals, successful missions and settlements offer unusual openings for practical experience in many branches of Christian service. Few cities in the land present so great an opportunity for spiritual, educational, and recre¬ ational advantages. Objective The objective of the Northwestern Bible and Missionary Training School is to train men and women in the thorough knowledge and effective practical use of the English Bible. Spe¬ cific preparation is given to those who wish to equip themselves for a definite branch of Christian service, Graduates of the school serve as pastors, pastors assistants, evangelists, home and foreign missionaries, Sunday-school workers, young people’s leaders, church secre¬ taries, and Dally Vacation Bible School workers. Doctrinal Statement We believe in die Virgin Birth and consequent deity of Jesus Christ; In His atoning work on the cross, whereby He redeemed us from our sins; in the resurrection of the body of Jesus Christ and bodily ascension into heaven; in His personal, visible, and premillenial return; in regeneration as an absolute necessity to entrance into the Kingdom of God, and in the Scriptures as verbally inspired of God, the only absolute infallible guide to the salvation of the h liman soul. Af|je Ninety General THE BIBLE COURSE is primarily for those who feel called to the ministry, or for those who want a thorough working knowledge of the Bible. THE MISSIONARY COURSE is for those who feel led of God to offer themselves for home or foreign missionary service. This course includes a term of Medical Lectures THE SECRETARIAL COURSE is open to Seniors who are preparing to he pastors assistants and secretaries. An additional fee to cover the cost of maintaining this department is charged per term. College graduates may finish 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, ONE-YEAR COURSE The first year of every course is the same, and is so arranged that the student who wishes to take but one year receives an intensive preparation m the study of the Bible and related subjects Should a one-year student decide to continue, he can do so without loss of time or credits This course is a great safeguard for a young person entering a college or university, where he is likely to be subjected to erroneous teachings regarding the Word of God. It has exactly suited the need. ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS GENERAL: Every applicant must meet the following requirements: He must be at least seventeen years of age (exceptions have been made in the case of students who have graduated from high school before the age of 17). He must have a satisfactory certificate of health, signed recently by a physician. An applicant must have an approved Christian char¬ acter, willingness to work, to be taught, criticized and guided. Application blanks must be filled out and considered before applicants are admitted to the school. The blanks, accompanied by health certificate, vaccination certificate, and photograph of the applicant, together with a transcript of his credits from previous schools attended, should be mailed to the school as early as possible before the opening of the term. EDUCATIONAL: 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 that has felt the call will be refused admission because of lick of previous education. He will be given the opportunity to overcome those things which would handicap him in the Lord ' s work by taking die four-year course designed especially for him. However, we advise preliminary training, at least to the extent of a high school education, for every student. 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 of English, Those who are not high school graduates must take four years of English, Students who are not able to carry the work of the regular English course will be placed at the discretion of the English department, Ninety-one i Expenses There is a registration fee of $12.50 per term, or $25.00 per year, for both resident stu¬ dents and those living outside the dormitories. This includes the school publications (The Pilot and the Scroll). An extra fee of $1.00 will be charged for late registrations. Board and room will be provided at the small cost of $6.00 (for double room) to $6.50 (for single room) per week under the assignment plan, by which a student docs an assigned amount of domestic work, not exceeding an hour a day. Where no domestic work is performed, the cost is increased $2.00 a week. For those living in the dormitories there is an extra charge of $1.00 a semester for the use of electricity for washing and ironing. In the Secretarial Course there is a charge of $12.00 per term for typewriting. For any student not in the secretarial course who elects typewriting there is the same charge of $12.00 per term. Every student who is not working for his room and board or whose permanent home is not in Minneapolis or St Paul, must live in the dormitory. Textbooks are provided by the students themselves, the English Bible being the funda¬ mental textbook of the school. Students should bring with them, for their own use, a pillow, dresser scarf, towels, comforters, and a blanket suitable for a spread. The school furnishes and launders sheets and pillow cases. Every student should have a metal-top study lamp. EMPLOYMENT AND FINANCIAL AID When we consider the precarious employment situation throughout the country, we feel the Lord has been wonderfully gracious to us in this respect. It is usually possible for the stu¬ dents to find regular employment for two or three hours a day to supplement their funds, although no guarantee of the same can be given in advance Girls who are strong physically, neat and clean, and pleasing in personality, and who arc willing to do any type of work, may, through the Dean of Women, find homes where they can work for board and room, and carfare. Students must have enough money to pay their registration fee in advance, and should have sufficient funds to carry them through the first semester without outside work.
