BAPTIST STUDENT UNION Projects, programs and partici- pation describe the Baptist Student Union. The outreach of the BSU en- compasses 1,000 Tech students who participate in the six areas of service: enlistment, worship, study, evan- gelism, missions and fellowship. The mission area represents the cog of the activity wheel with its many varied projects. Each Friday night BSU members teach Bible classes for underprivileged children at Lubbock churches. Tutoring ses- sions at area orphanages keep members busy on week nights. Sun- day is " Visiting Day " at area rest homes for the BSU. The main pro- ject for this fall was Project Hombre, designed to buy beans and rice for the Mexicans left destitute by Hurri- cane Beulah. The red circle on the BSU cal- endar is the annual mid-winter re- treat at Glorietta, New Mexico. Be- sides enjoying the snow and sports, members were inspired by well- known Baptist speakers and stimula- ting discussion groups. In addition to this trip 12 students are selected yearly as Southern Baptist Home Mission Board Summer Missionaries and may be sent anywhere in the United States. News of BSU activities is reported in the Tech Times, a monthly newspaper compiled by the Publications Committee under Vy Townsend. A system o f committee heads make up the governing body of the BSU, the Executive Council. They are assisted by Jack Greever, director of the BSU and Barbara Ford, assistant director. Members of the council are elected annually and must be either a junior or a senior with a two-point average. Besides being the hub of activity the BSU is a link with the church, a place for Christian fellowship and worship, and offers a chance to serve God and the community. Leading spngs at a Baptist Student Union Mission are James Durhann, Lucy Ford and Jan Calle. Executive Council: Front row: David Stricltlin, Carolyn Boyd, Carol Graves Don Henry. Second row: Linda Geron, Peggy Ramsey. Wanda Suchiu, Mary Anderson, Carole McCuistion, Jan Crisp. Third row: Jay Holt, Jack Greever. Larry Howard, Danny Smith, Carole Olson, Donald James, Joe La Salandra, Mike Watts. Tyme 11

i Discussing a topic on the Lay Acadenny are: Tom Burtis, Steve Teal, George Giffin, Walker Lane, Nora Lane, Joe Reeder, and Sue Ragle. WESLEY FOUNDATION Well-Rounded Program Studies have been made to find meaning in life through science, art, and religion. The religious aspect of this type of study has been greatly followed by the Wesley Foundation on the Tech campus. This is done through forums and the Lay Academy. The forums, held on Wednesday nights, are organized with a speaker, usually a professor or a graduate stu- dent, followed by a discussion session. The preferred topics are controversial items such as the hippie, the playboy philosophy, and Negro history. The Lay Academy was divided into seven groups this year, having meetings regularly scheduled for Mon- day, Tuesday, and Thursday nights. One group is designed especially for freshmen. The program consists of orientation, general outlook, and liv- ing in Twentieth century. Other groups of the division study aspects of education, the church ' s role in the secular world, ecumenical future, future ethics for revolutionary times, various histories, and Bible in- terpretation. The goal of the program is to improve one ' s living quotient. Through the study, the participants are attempt- ing to answer questions about their lives: Where is his part? What does he do about it? What kind of a per- son is he in relation to others? Groups are kept small to encourage frank dis- cussion. In addition to these programs, there was the Perkins Lecture Series, consisting of four professors from SMU, two speakers each semester. Also, there were worship services on Tuesday morning. Sunday ' s agenda included lectures, discussions, films, and dinner. Entertainment such as hootenan- nies and parties were another form of fellowship offered at the Wesley Foundation. The Wesley group kept busy planning programs and activities which would enrich the lives of mem- bers and visitors. Members of the Wesley Foundation at a Wednesday night forum are: Rev. Gene Sarley, Hugh Hays, Julie Lindqulst, Shirley McAlister, Joe Hilbun, Mrs. Faye Matthews, Dr. Cecil Matthews, David Sanders, Tom Nagle, Laura Wheeler, Bonnie Baker. Seated: Sue Walker, Linda Lutgens. Kneeling: Wesley Wallace. Allen Kenley, and Joe Reeder. 10 Tyme

Anson Mount .represents the Playboy philos- ophy during " A Clash of Philosophies " in the Municipal Auditorium. Richard Trussell, Ronnie Stephenson, and Beth Bourland, Tech students, listen as Dr. William J. league speaks about " Total Confusion " in the Biology Auditorium. CHURCH OF CHRIST Activities The " clash " with Playboy reli- gion editor, Anson Mount by William S. Banowsky, minister of the Broad- way Church of Christ, was quite an event on the Tech campus Oct. 8, 1967. It was attended by 2,400 in the Mu- nicipal Auditorium and witnessed by many others on live television. " Total Confusion, " Campus A d- vance ' s first " New Life Meeting " with Dr. William J. Teague, Vice-President of Pepperdine College, speaking, brought to life three things students and young people of today want: first, something to believe in; second, guid- ance; and third, to be taken seriously. Two events for international stu- dents have seen an emphasis on the needs of these students by the students of Campus Advance. There was much adventure and joy in getting acquainted with the students from around the world on the Tech campus. Sharing the claims of Christ on the Tech campus and the campus of the University of New Mexico was a central part of the program this past year. Students from Tech traveled to Albuquerque for a campaign on that campus. All of the other events spon- sored by Campus Advance were held with this central idea in mind. It is the conviction of this group of students that Christ is the answer to the many problems of the campus community as well as the emptiness felt by many students. CAMPUS ADVANCE Church of Christ Students Campus Advance is a group of young men and women working to- gether with one common goal ; that being, sharing Christ with their fellow students. Campus Advance has become a meaningful organization on the Tech campus this past year. It is made up of Tech students who are members of the Church o f Christ and others who share the same ideals and goals. The group at Tech is a pilot project for a world-wide campus movement. There are three people working full time with the students in addition to a full time secretary. Campus Advance looks forward to many more cooperative years with the students, administration and fac- ulty of Texas Tech.
