The "S.M.C." July, 1953 
Richard Hammill, Editor 
Published quarterly by Southern Missionary College, College- 
dale, Tennessee. Entered as second class matter February 12, 1951, 
at Collegedale, Tennessee, under act of Congress August 24, 1912. 



WHAT IS A COLLEGE CATALOG FOR? 

Well, the typical college catalog is not written 
th any hope of its becoming a best seller. It is 
necessity "technical" rather than "popular." 

But the college catalog can be — and often is — 
ry helpful to the student who knows what it is 
: and how to use it. 

It is a handbook for ready reference on matters 
concern to students in their life on the College 
npus. (The new student should remember that 
■ academic requirements published herein will be 
force for the full period of his college life on 
'C campus.) 

The principal sub-division of this catalog are 
icated by the headings which are printed opposite 

arrows on the right margin of this page. Directly 
ler each one of these arrows will be found a 
ck square which is printed on the right margin of 

page on which a corresponding heading appears. 
? page is given on the arrow. 

Glossary, p. 162; complete topical index, p. 164. 

The owner of this catalog should file it for ready 
:rence- and bring it (when needed) to conferences 
i the Dean, the Registrar or the Faculty Coun- 
3r. 

Keeping this publication revised, and up-to date 

meticulously correct calls for the continuous, ac- 

cooperation of every college officer and every 

?ge teacher. The student, too, can help by calling 

itian to errors, inadequacies and inco-ordinations. 

ft is hoped that all officers, teachers and students 
help the Administration to make continuous 
movements in successive issue of "our" catalog.

{Democracy Vs. Autocracy) 




Autocracy claims: 

That it can be (and sometimes is) more efficient than 
democracy. 

Democracy claims: 

1. That all who aspire to learn the art of self-govern- 
ment by the painful but elemental process of trial 
and error should have an opportunity to do so. 

2. That mere efficiency on the part of a few who rule 
the sullen masses is no satisfactory substitute for the 
inherent right of these masses to learn cooperation — 
and to earn contentment — by participation. 

3. That cooperation and contentment insure ultimate 
efficiency on the highest level of human achievement. 

Autocracy is concerned 

about efficiency, too often for purely selfish ends. 

Democracy is concerned 

about the growth of the individual in the art of serv- 
ing others as well as self. 

Cooperation 

(which is the other name for the Golden Rule in full 
and effective operation) is the essence of all true 
democracy; it means that we must so conduct our- 
selves that others may be able to live happily and to 
work comfortably and effectively with us. 



/4 (food gotteye 



is a center for training in the fine art of cooperative 
living; it is a place where young people — of any age 
— come together to educate thmeselves and each other 
with the effective help of inspiring teachers. 



n 



?4k Ideal @fcii&Uau @otle$e 



is a carefully designed educational environment in which young people 
of high purpose and fervent zeal come together voluntarily and joyfully 
to seek the effective help of devoted, dedicated, inspiring Christian teachers 
while they prepare themselves and help to prepare each other for a life 
of self-effacing Christian srevice at home and abroad. 



t4*t ^deoi @&t£efe Student 

• Has "purposed in his heart" to keep the commandments of God. 

• Is continuously concerned with the problem of clarifying and better 
defining his life purposes. 

• Knows why he has come to college and why he has chosen to come to 
this particular college. 

• Is concerned to select his curriculum, his courses, and his work 
assignments wisely because he knows they can be an effective means 
to the achievement of his life purposes. 

• Chooses his college companions with due caution and care because 
he wants to be helpful to them, he knows that the right companions 
can be helpful to him, and he realizes that his best buddies in college 
are likely to be his boon companions for life. 

• Desires to achieve sound scholarship, to maintain high ethical stand- 
ards, and to acquire acceptable social graces. 

• Has retained, in spite of any routine, uninteresting and unprofitable 
teaching he may have had, something of his childhood curiosity 1 "to 
know about things." 

• Tries to build up his health and to avoid acquiring habits that will 
impair it. 

• Is a good steward of his time, energy, money, and influence. 

• Knows that all true education is self education — that while grades 
may be given and degrees conferred, education must be earned. 

• Understands that self-government is the only kind of government 
under which men can live happily.

WHY INDUSTRIES IN AN EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION? 

The prevailing pattern of the work-study program in the Seventh-day Adventist colleges and 
academies is based upon the educational philosophy and the counsels of Mrs. Ellen G. White. 

Her reasons for recommending that regular work assignments be given to students is clearly expressed 
in the following paragraphs: 

"In acquiring an education, many students would gain a most valuable training if they would 
become sell-sustaining. 

# ' 'Instead of incurring debts, or depending on the self-denial of their parents, let young men and 
young women depend on themselves. 

"They will thus learn the value of money, the value of time, strength, and opportunities, and will be 
under far less temptation to indulge idle and spendthrift habits." 

During the summer term of 1952 and the current academic year, 500 college and 90 academy students 
were given part-time employment; of these: 170 earned all their school expenses; 275 earned 66% 
or more; 350 earned 50% or more; 450 earned 33% or more; 590 earned 20% or more. 

9 At the peak season of the current academic year the 500* college and academy students in part- 
time employment were distributed in our industries and service departments about as follows:

Q 






OUR WORK-STUDY PROGRAM FOR CHARACTER 
BUILDING 

It is a significant fact that the average student at Southern 
Missionary College earned last year the sum of $670.00 toward 
his school expenses/ 

But far more significant is the value of the practical educa- 
tion and training acquired by these students from "earning 
while learning" and "learning from earning." 

Our industries and service departments are under the direc- 
tion and supervision of high-type Christian men and women. 

Our foremen in industries and service departments provide a 
bonus for each student worker who finds and suggests practical 
ways for improving our industrial (and other) processes and prod- 
ucts. 

There are certain distinctive educational outcomes which 
ordinarily follow the active and lively participation of our students 
in such work programs as we offer, for example: 

They learn to cooperate! with one another and with their 
leader whether he be the superintendent, a job foreman, or a 
fellow-student worker. 

They acquire an increasingly clear concept of % the dignity 
of honest toil." 

They learn really to enjoy the sense of personal accomplish- 
ment. 

They appreciate the beauty and recognize the utility of 
creative workmanship. 

They develop a love for real craftsmanship and an apprecia- 
tion of the high quality of the output of our industries. 

They learn to assume responsibility for the effective com- 
pletion of any work project undertaken. 

They develop habits of promptness in beginning and finishing 
work projects and dependability in fulfilling commitments for 
delivery or lor shipment of finished products. 

They greatly increase the value of what they have learned 
from books by putting it to practical use. 

They discover vocational and avocational interests and apti- 
tudes as they gain experience in a wide variety of types oi 
employment. 

They learn to promote acceptable patterns of democratic 
and cooperative living on our College campus and in our College 
industries and service departments.

up financial credit.

Really Significant Elements of Christian Character. 



CHOOSING YOUR CURRICULUM, YOUR COURSES. 
AND YOUR WORK ASSIGNMENT* 

Re-read carefully and thoughtfully pages A, B, C, D, F, and 
G, of this catalog. 

If you expect to be in college to the completion of a full 
four-year degree curriculum, you may well devote the first 
year principally to courses that are required in the curriculum 
which most appeals to you as a Freshman. (See list of curriculums 
offered page 47. 

During this first year re-explore your abilities, your interests 
and your dominant life purposes under the guidance of your 
faculty counselor, the director of the testing and counseling 
services, the dean of the college, and other persons of mature 
judgment. 

Acquaint yourself with the scope and purpose of each of 
the curriculums offered in the college. (See pages 47 to 78 in- 
clusive.) 

In preparation for making your final choice of a curriculum 
at (say) the close of the second year, consult your official faculty 
counselor, and the advisor for any curriculum in which you have 
a definite interest. 

Read and study the line-bordered pages printed in bold 
face type preceding each of the Divisions of Instruction in this 
catalog. (See pages 80, 98, 104, 114, 122, 134, and 140.) This will 
help you to understand that ALL SEVEN OF THESE FIELDS OF 
HUMAN INTEREST ARE IMPORTANT TO YOU. 

Confer, as occasion is afforded you to do so, with each of 
the teachers in charge of the courses you are required to take 
or have otherwise decided to take. 

If you must, for good reasons, limit your choice of a curric- 
ulum to one of the list of two-year curriculums (See list page 47), 
consult freely with your Freshman counselor and with the 
curriculum advisor to whom he may direct you, before making 
your final choice. 



*Do not hesitate to state clearly to the Director of Work 
Assignments just what your preference is and the reason there- 
for. If, for practical reasons, he cannot grant your request or if, in 
his judgment, it would not be in your interests that he should do 
so, be a good soldier. 

Aim to make good not only on your curriculum and your 
courses, but also on your work assignments. 

While on any given work assignment, make yourself as 
nearly indispensable as possible. 



>ur Aim: The Harmonious Education of Head, Heart, and Hand. 



Our Needs at Southern Missionary 
College 

L BUILDINGS 

1. A new Gymnasium ...,.$200,000 

2. A new Home Economics Building 60,000 

3. A new Hospital, Sanitarium and 

College Health Center 300,000 

4. A new Industrial Arts Building 100,000 

5. A new Book Bindery 50,000 

6. Enlarged Dining Room and Kitchen 25,000 

7. College Chapel Extension 20,000 

8. Paving of College Drive 10,000 

II. MORE ADEQUATE OPERATING FUNDS 

Not only Board members, administrative officers and classroom 
teachers, but also students, parents, and their neighbors can make 
friends for the college, can interpret its services constructively 
and helpfully, and can persuade men and women of means to 
make gifts, donations and bequests — large or small — to support 
and to extend the educational services of Southern Missionary 
College. 

III. MORE BENEFACTORS AND FRIENDS 

A steady and more adequate inflow of funds is needed for 
the operating budget of the college. This will make it possible 
to have better classroom and laboratory equipment, more well 
prepared teachers, and the necessary capital to carry the heavy 
inventories required in our numerous industries.

GENERAL INFORMATION 

HISTORY 

Southern Missionary College, a Seventh-day Adventist institu- 
tion, was founded in 1893 as Southern Training School, at 
Graysville, Tennessee. Twenty-three years later the school was 
moved to Collegedale, Tennessee; and there, in 1916, it was re- 
opened as Southern Junior College. The exigencies of a rapidly 
expanding student body necessitated the extension, in the spring 
of 1944, to senior college status, and the first four-year seniors were 
graduated from Southern Missionary College in 1946. 

Southern Missionary College is incorporated under the laws 
of the State of Tennessee, the Board of Trustees assuming entire 
responsibility for the financial support and management of the 
institution. 

ACCREDITATION AND CERTIFICATION 

Southern Missionary College is fully accredited as a four-year 
institution of higher learning by the Southern Association of Col- 
leges and Secondary Schools, by the Tennessee State Department of 
Education, and by the Seventh-day Adventist Board of Regents. 
The college is also a member of the Southern Association of Pri- 
vate Schools, the Tennessee College Association, and the Mid- 
South Association of Private Schools. 

Southern Missionary College has been approved by the Ten- 
nessee State Board of Education for the certification of secondary 
school teachers and for the certification of elementary school teach- 
ers on both the two-year and four-year levels. 

OBJECTIVES 

Basic Denominational Tenets. Seventh-day Adventists believe 
in an infinite Creator as the source of all life and wisdom; they 
regard man as created in God's image and endowed with mental, 
moral, and physical powers capable of growth and development; 
they accept the moral law as binding upon all men and believe in 
personal redemption from sin through Jesus Christ; they accept 
the Bible as God's Word, the inspired revelation of His will to

be led to practice correct habits of thinking, to develop Christian 
character, and to make diligent preparation for a purposeful life of 
efficient service to their fellow men. 

Specific Objectives. Southern Missionary College is a four- 
year co-educational college of arts and sciences operated by the 
Seventh-day Adventist denomination. It's general objectives are those

hundred current periodicals conveniently arranged and adequately 
housed for study, reference and research. A portion of the base- 
ment floor is used for student publications and a lecture room. 
The library is located adjacent to the administration building and 
is readily accessible from the residence halls.

Earl F. Hackman Science Hall 
Hackman Hall, modern in arrangement and appointment, a 
commodious, two-story, fireproof building, contains various lecture 
rooms and laboratories of the division of natural sciences. This 
building, completed and dedicated in 1951, was named in honor of 
the late Earl F. Hackman, friend of the College and for many years 
chairman of its Board. 

Fine Arts Building 
In September, 1952, work was begun on a beautiful fireproof 
fine arts building that will be ready for classes when the 1953 
fall term begins. Besides music studios, practice rooms, speech

chase books and other supplies. Recently remodeled and expanded 
the building contains the grocery and drug departments and the

SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 23 

modations for about forty married couples. The Brookside apart- 
ments provide accommodations for eleven families. (See Married 
Students Housing, page 152.) 

Industrial Buildings 
Year by year the College has added to its facilities for offering 
instruction in the skills fundamental to the trades. These buildings 
and equipment have been appointed by the college for educational 
purposes — for training young people in vocations by means of 
which they may become self-supporting workers and missionaries. 
Equipment has been provided for the mastery of the principles of 
printing, dairying, laundering, woodworking, auto mechanics, 
poultry raising, farming, and merchandising. In addition to the 
farm buildings, and a new modern maintenance shop the following 
are some of the industrial buildings: 

The College Press. The College Press, housed in a large 
brick building, is equipped with two intertypes, two automatic cylin- 
der presses, and one hand fed cylinder press, three job presses, a 
New American Type Founders offset press, and other up-to-date 
equipment. This industry provides employment for approximately 
thirty students and does the printing not only for the College and 
the denomination but also for many commercial establishments. 

College Wood Products. The College Wood Products is a 
rambling and expansive three story frame building with modern 
equipment for the manufacture of furniture. It affords part-time 
employment for approximately one hundred twenty students. 

The Broom Factory. The Broom Factory is housed in a large 
one story building. It offers employment to seventy students who 
manufacture approximately 400,000 brooms each year. 

Laundry. A well equipped laundry, specializing in flat work, 
offers employment for sixty-five students. In addition to the 
college laundry service and work from the community, the laundry 
is patronized by five hotels and eighteen tourist camps in the sur- 
rounding area. The laundry also operates a modern dry cleaning 
establishment. 

SUMMER SESSION 
The college conducts a nine-week summer session. The normal 
scholastic load, eight hours; maximum load, nine hours. 



24 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

The Summer Session announcement of Southern Missionary 
College, containing detailed statements of the several courses offered 
and information of general interest to students, will be sent on 
application to the Director of the Summer Session. 

INFORMATION FOR VETERANS 

Southern Missionary College cordially welcomes former mem- 
bers of the United States armed forces who have been honorably 
discharged and who wish to continue their formal education in a 
Christian college. Every cooperation will be extended to enable 
the veteran to complete the curriculum of his choice in the shortest 
possible time consistent with approved scholastic standards. 

Southern Missionary College is fully recognized as a training 
center for veterans. In general the rules for admission and con- 
tinued registration of veterans are the same as for other students, 
except that veterans who have not finished high school may qualify 
for admission to certain curriculums by passing successfully the Gen- 
eral Educational Development tests at the high school level. 

Veterans holding medical discharges and eligible under 
Public Law 16 should make arrangements for a personal interview 
with a representative of the Veteran's Administration at his local 
office, where he will receive an authorization to enter training at 
Southern Missionary College. 

All veterans are urged to take prompt advantage of the edu- 
cational benefits of the G.I. Bill of Rights. There is no cut-off 
date for starting courses under Public Law 16, the Vocational 
Rehabilitation Act for disabled veterans. 

WHAT THE G. I. BILL OF RIGHTS PROVIDES 

For all but Korean Veterans, the Veterans Administration 
will pay direct to this college the charge for tuition, general fees, 
required books and supplies. Books and supplies are paid for only 
if they are required of non-veterans taking the same course. 

The minimum number of college hours for which the veteran 
may draw full subsistence is twelve for a semester; under Public 
Law 16 a veteran must take a full course load unless he has special 
authorization for a reduced program. 

The general fee does not include the advance deposits which 
must be made by the veteran at his own expense and is credited 
back to his personal account at the close of the school term. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 25 

A Veteran attending another school under Public Law 16 
or 346 who wishes to transfer to Southern Missionary College must 
obtain permission from the Veteran's Administration. If permis- 
sion is granted, he will then receive a supplemental certificate of 
eligibility authorizing the transfer to this college. This certificate 
must be presented to Southern Missionary College at the time of 
registration. 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR TRAINING FOR KOREAN VETERANS 

The Korean Veteran's Readjustment Act of 1952, Public 
Law 550, 82nd Congress, provides training assistance for any 
honorably discharged veteran who served on active duty after 
June 27, 1950. 

The period of service for which a veteran is eligible is called 
the "basic service period." The "basic service period" for Public 
Law 550 is the period beginning on June 27, 1950, and ending on 
such date as shall be determined by Presidential proclamation or 
concurrent resolution of Congress. 

The term "delimiting date" means August 20, 1954, or the 
date two years after the veteran's discharge or release from active 
service whichever is the later, and the veteran must actually com- 
mence the active pursuit of the approved program of education or 
training not later than his delimiting date. 

No education or training shall be afforded to any individual 
veteran beyond a date seven years following the end of the "basic 
service period," or the date seven years after his discharge or release 
from active service, whichever is the earlier. The amount of training 
in any case shall not exceed 36 months. 

Public Law 550 allows the veteran to make one change only 
in his curriculum. However, it imposes no restriction upon a change 
of institutions for pursuit of the same curriculum. 

To begin training for the first time, the veteran need not fill 
out any form prior to his arrival on the campus. However, he should 
have in his possession: (1) a certified copy of discharge papers; 

(2) if married, a certified copy of the public record of marriage; 

(3) if divorced, a certified copy of the divorce decree; and (4) a 
photostatic copy of birth certificate.

None One More than one 
Full time (14 sem. hrs.)$HO $135 $160 
y 4 80 100 120 

l/ 2 50 60 80 

Out of this allowance, plus whatever he might secure from other 
sources, the veteran must pay the college for his tuition, fees, books 
and supplies, and keep up to date on all other obligations. 

GOVERNING STANDARDS 

General. In the light of the objectives of the college the re- 
ligious phase of the student's education is of paramount importance. 
Students applying for entrance to the college thereby pledge them* 
selves to maintain the Christian standards of the institution, to at- 
tend all regularly scheduled religious services, and to give due re- 
spect to things spiritual. 

Any student who does not maintain a satisfactory scholarship 
or industrial record, or who, in the judgment of the President's 
Council, is unresponsive or non-cooperative in his relation to the 
objectives of the college, may be dismissed without specific charges. 

Moral Conduct. Students must refrain from indecent or 
disorderly behavior, from profane or unbecoming language, from 
the use of tobacco and alcohol, from reading pernicious literature, 
from playing cards, from visiting pool rooms or gambling places, 
from attending the theater, dances, or any other entertainment not 
approved by the President's Council. 

Citizenship Standards. At the close of each semester or 
term each student is given a citizenship rating by a committee com- 
posed of representative students and officers of the college. The 
ratings given are (1) satisfactory, S; (2) improvement desired, I; 
and (3) unsatisfactory, U. 

Automobiles. The college has adopted and enforces the 
rule that unmarried residence-hall students may not bring to the 
campus or operate a motor vehicle. Residence hall students who 
come to the college with automobiles or motorcycles will be re- 
quired to take them home or sell them before they register. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 27 

Leave of Absence. Permission for ordinary leave of absence 
from the campus is to be obtained from the dean of men or the 
dean of women. The student's handbook should be consulted for 
information regarding week-end and other special leaves. 

Marriages. Any student desiring to marry during the school 
year and remain in school must first receive permission from the 
President's Council. Secret marriages are not approved and are 
considered sufficient reason for severing a student's connection with 
the college. 

Residence. All unmarried students who do not live with 
their parents, near relatives, or legal guardians, are expected to 
live in the residence halls on the campus. Exceptions may be made 
occasionally for reasons approved by the President's Council. 

Information as to room furnishings to be supplied by the 
student is given in the students' handbook which is mailed to each 
person who applies for admission. It is also available upon request. 

Announced Regulations. Any regulation adopted by the 
faculty and announced to the student will have the same force as 
if printed in the catalog or in the handbook, S.M.C, and You. 

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AND SERVICES 

The extra-class activities program of the college provides well 
organized opportunities for development of student initiative and 
leadership. In the Student Association, through his elected re- 
presentative, each student has a voice in the formulation of policies 
and in the administration of college life and activities. Through 
participating in the various student organizations and church ac- 
tivities the student may acquire valuable experience in the art of 
group living and in working for and with his fellows. The college 
program of extra-class activities is under the supervision of the 
Coordinator of Student Activities. Student clubs are chartered by 
the Student Association. The plans and policies governing the 
Student Association and the other student organizations, as well 
as the program of extra-class activities generally, are outlined in the 
handbook, Our Student Organizations at Work. 

Testing and Counseling Service, This service provides 
general assistance to all students and also certain professional serv- 
ices for those with special needs. General assistance for all 



28 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLHGE 

students is provided for by a group of personal counselors who de- 
vote some hours each week to individual conferences with students. 
The various officers, division chairmen and curriculum advisers also 
cooperate in this general advisory program. All students participate 
in the general testing program, which includes measures of scholastic 
aptitude, reading proficiency, social adjustment, vocational pro- 
ficiency and others as the need may require. 

The Director of the Testing and Counseling Service, who is a 
clinical psychologist, and the College physician unite in providing 
a specialized clinical service for those who desire special counsel in 
such matters as the choice of a vocation, emotional and social 
maladjustments, and marital problems. 

Health Service. The health service is under the supervi- 
sion of a resident registered nurse. The college physician attends, 
on a part time basis, and is available on call. Several graduate 
nurses are also available as needed. The health service provides 
physical check-ups and examinations, clinical and infirmary service, 
isolation and protection in the case of infectious or contagious 
diseases, health education, and supervision of sanitation. 

Convocation, the Lyceum, Athletics. At various times 
during the school year distinguished speakers address the students at 
the chapel hour. A iyceum course of lectures, travelogues, and 
musical numbers is sponsored by the college. Students of Southern 
Missionary College do not participate in intercollegiate athletics, but 
a program of recreational activities is maintained. 

Financial Aid. In the operation of the college, a large 
volume of employment is offered to students. Under the guidance of 
skilled, supervisors, this work affords valuable training, and brings 
a college education within the reach of many who otherwise would 
find it impossible to attend school. 

Publications. The Student Association publishes the bi- 
weekly Southern Accent and the yearbook, Southern Memories. 

Religious Life and Organizations. The local church, the 
Sabbath school, the Missionary Volunteer Society and its auxiliaries, 
the Ministerial Seminar, the Colporteur Club, the mission study 
groups, and the prayer bands contribute to the devotional, mis- 
sionary, and prayer life of the student and afford opportunties for 
training in leadership, teaching, and church endeavors. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 29 

Participation in Extra-curricular Activities. In order to 
insure satisfactory scholarship, the extent to which students may 
participate in extra-curricular activities is subject to regulation. 

SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 
ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 
Broadly speaking Southern Missionary College is a living 
institution made up of its alumni, faculty, and students. The 
Collegedale Alumni Association promotes the interests of the 
school, fosters a spirit of friendship among former students, pre- 
serves worthy traditions of the college, and serves mankind through 
the personal exemplification and advocacy of the ideals of Alma 
Mater. 

The General Association holds two meetings annually, one on 
Founders' Day in October and the other on Commencement Day. 
Local chapters in various sections of the country meet several times

Orientation Days. Two days at the beginning of each school 
year are devoted to the orientation of new students. It is essential 
that all freshmen and transfer students be in attendance. During 
this period placement and aptitude tests and a physical examination 
are given. No charge is made for these examinations if they are 
taken at the apponted time. See announcements, page 3. 

Admission of Veterans on G. E. D. Tests. Admission to 
full freshman standing at Southern Missionary College is possible 
to veterans who, failing to meet the entrance requirements other- 
wise, can qualify on the following points: 1. The candidate must 
have completed elementary school; 2. The candidate must take the 
General Education Development tests numbers 2, 3, and 4 (either 
at Southern Missionary College or at any other approved testing 
station) making an average standing score of 45 with a minimum 
score of 35 on each test. In case the candidate falls below a score 
of 35 in any field he must register for at least one unit in ifche 
secondary school in that field. These tests must be taken prior to or 
during the first month of attendance at the college. In addition to 
these the applicant must take the American Psychological Examina- 
tion and the Co-operative English test. If satisfactory scores are 
achieved on this battery of tests, the applicant may be admitted to 
freshman standing with the permission of the College dean. 

Freshman Standing. Those graduates of accredited four-year 
secondary schools whose scholarship record is acceptable are ad- 
mitted to freshman standing upon properly certified transcript of 
credits, but such students may have subject deficiencies to make 
up. 

Conditional freshman standing may be given to a person 
who has completed fourteen acceptable units. The remaining two 
units shall be earned during the first year of attendance at the 
college. 

Advanced Standing. A candidate for admission to advanced 
standing from another accredited institution of college rank may 
receive credit without examination for such work, subject to the 
following requirements. 

(a) He must have complete official transcripts from each pre- 
vious institution attended. Each transcript should show entrance 
credits, a complete college record including scholarship and credits 
in each subject taken, and a statement of honorable dismissal. 



32 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 



(b) He must satisfy the entrance requirements of this college. 

(c) Credit is regarded as provisional at the time of the 
applicant's admission. This work will not be recorded and passed 
on by transcript until the applicant has completed satisfactorily in 
this college, not less than twelve semester hours. A maximum of 
seventy- two semester hours, or 108 quarter hours, may be accepted 
from a junior college. 

Admission As An Adult Special Student. Any acceptable 
person twenty-one years of age or over may be admitted as a 
special student (not as a candidate for a degree or a diploma) , on 
approval of the Dean and of the instructors in whose courses he 
wishes to enroll. Any course taken by an adult special student 
carries lower biennium credit, and a maximum of twenty-four 
semester hours credit may be earned by such student. 

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS 

The students' secondary record must average "C or above. 

Admission by Transcript. Students may be admitted by 
transcript (or certificate) of at least sixteen units from an accredited 
high school or academy. As the pattern of prerequisite require- 
ments varies, those required for each curriculum are listed below 
and explained on the following page. Exceptions to this rule can be 
made only by special action of the Admissions Committee.

SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 33 

KEY TO SYMBOLS USED IN EXHIBIT ABOVE 

a. One unit for each year of attendance in an S. D. A. academy, to a total 

of three units. S. D. A. academy graduates must present one unit in 
Bible Doctrines. 

b. Except for candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Secretarial 

Science and a major in Business Administration, Business English 
does not apply on the English requirement. 

c. Both units are required in one language. One unit of credit in a modern 

foreign language is not accepted toward admission unless the second 
unit is earned or the language continued in college. One unit of a 
modern foreign language may be accepted as an elective unit. It is highly 
recommended that prenursing students present two units of foreign 
language, although they may be admitted to some nursing schools with- 
out it. The student who presents these two units thus has the greater 
freedom, for he may then qualify for all schools of nursing. 

d. Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts with a major in Religion 

and candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Theology (Minis- 
terial Curriculum) have a choice of meeting the entrance requirement 
in language in one of three ways. They may (1) elect to present two 
units in one foreign language as explained in note "c" above, or they 
may (2) elect to take fourteen hours of college Greek rather than 
twelve as required of those who present two entrance units as in- 
dicated under note "c" above, or they may (3) elect to take twelve 
hours of Greek and six hours of Hebrew. 

e. These units may be selected from the following: algebra I or general 

mathematics, plane geometry, algebra II, and trigonometry. Commercial 
or other applied mathematics does not satisfy this requirement. 

f. Where one unit only is required this must be a laboratory science, such 

as biology, physics or chemistry. A second unit requirement may 
be met by general science. 

g. Sufficient to make a total of sixteen units. Should be chosen to support 

curriculum to be followed in college. 

h. The social science requirements may be met by presenting two units 
from the following: American History, World History General 
History, European History, Civil Government, Problems of Democracy, 
Economic Geography, and Economics. One unit must be history. 

i. Algebra and plane geometry. 

j. Biology and one unit of either chemistry or physics. 

k. Shall include one unit of algebra. 

I. Graduation from a secondary school with one unit each of algebra and 
plane geometry is recommended; also, as far a possible, the require- 
ments for admission to the arts and science curriculum. 

m. One unit of physics is strongly recommended. {See page 131.) 

Important Note: The unit pattern given, with graduation from an ac- 
credited secondary school and completion of necessary college courses, 
satisfies the requirements for admission to S.D.A. schools of medicine, 
dentistry, dietetics, and nursing; but inasmuch as requirements for 
admission to other professional schools differ, a student preparing for 
professional training should acquaint himself with the secondary and 
collegiate requirements for admission to the particular school he 
desires to enter, and plan both his secondary school and college pro- 
grams to meet these requirements. 

Entrance Deficiencies: A student who has sufficient total acceptable 
units but lacks specific required units, may be admitted to college and 
may make up entrance deficiencies, except mathematics, by taking college 
work in these subjects. When a college course is taken to remove 
an entrance deficiency, four hours are counted as the equivalent of one 
secondary school unit. These hours apply as elective credit toward grad- 



34 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

uation, except that credit in foreign language and Bible applies to- 
ward the basic requirements in these fields. Arrangements for removing 
all entrance deficiencies should be made at the time of first registration. 

Admission by Examination, Mature persons (at least 
twenty-one years of age) who have not been graduated from 
high school may be admitted to the college on the basis of scholastic 
aptitude and achievement test results. By means of these tests, given 
during Freshman Week by the director of the Testing Service, the 
candidate must demonstrate his ability to carry college work suc- 
cessfully. 

STUDENTS FROM UNACCREDITED SCHOOLS 
Unless admitted as a veteran and as a result of G. E. D. 
test (see page 31), students from unaccredited high schools and 
academies, in addition to the above requirements, must take ex- 
aminations for college entrance. Entrance examinations are given 
in five fields as follows: Foreign Language, History, English, 
Mathematics, and Science. The student chooses four from these 
five fields. These tests are standardized achievement examinations 
covering the subject matter on the secondary school level. 

Students falling lower than the 30th percentile in one 
field are deemed to have failed in that field and will be re- 
quired to enroll for another secondary unit in that field in order 
to meet college entrance requirements. 

REGISTRATION 
All students whose applications for admission have been 
approved will receive by mail, at the home address given, a full 
printed schedule of all appointments for Orientation, Testing, 
Counseling and Registration, which will occur between 1:30 P.M. 
Sunday, September 6 and 10:00 P.M., Wednesday, September 9. 
(See page 3) All freshmen must take the full battery of tests. 
Transfer students must take the psychological tests unless former 
scores appear with their transcripts. 

Late Registration. A late registration fee of $5.00 is 
charged for ifirst semester registration after September 9 and for 
second semester registration after January 17. (See page 3). 

Any student who enters school late seriously handicaps him- 
self at the outset especially in courses in science, mathematics, 
and foreign language. Students who register more than two weeks 
late will not be enrolled for a full schedule of course work, and 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 3> 

may not enter certain courses because of the difficulty of making up 
the work. (See Attendance Regulations, page 39-) the course 
registration of a student entering after the first two weeks of a 
semester will be reduced one hour for each week or fraction there- 
of missed, including the first two weeks. No student will be ad- 
mitted for the full-course load after October 9 in the first semester 
or after February 18 in the second semester. 

Correct Registration. The early completion of the basic 
courses (see page 48) affords the student greater opportunity: 

1. To avoid difficulties in registration because of conflicts in 
schedule; 

2. To specialize during the junior and senior years; 

3. To choose electives during the junior and senior years; 

4. To follow without loss of time sequences of courses involv- 
ing prerequisites. 

As early as possible the student should plan, in counsel with 
his major professor, the sequence of courses for his major so as to 
complete curriculum requirements in due time. 

Changes in Registration, Changes of registration for sound 
academic reasons may be made during the first three weeks of a 
semester with the consent of the instructor concerned, the personal 
counselor, and the Registrar. After that time the permission of the 
College Dean must also be secured. A change-of -program voucher 
becomes effective the date the adviser's recommendation is received 
by the Registrar's Office. 

During the week immediately following the registration days 
of each semester a student may alter his course program with- 
out cost. Thereafter any change in registration carries a fee of 
$2.00. 

Students may not change from one class section to another 
taught by a different teacher without the written consent of the 
Dean. Ordinarily this permission is granted only in the event of 
conflicts in the class schedule or work program. 

Withdrawal. If a course being taken for credit is discon- 
tinued without cancellation of registration by drop voucher, it is 
regarded as a failure and so recorded. A course taken for credit, 
if discontinued after the first twelve weeks for any cause except 
illness or other unavoidable circumstances, as determined by the 
Dean, will be recorded as a failure. 



36 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

Semester Hour. A semester hour represents one fifty- 
minute lecture or recitation per week, or the equivalent, requiring 
two hours of outside study and preparation through a semester of 
eighteen weeks. A three hour laboratory period counts for one 
semester hour of credit. 

Student Study and Work Load. A full-time student except 
for Korean veterans, in any semester is defined as otne who is regis- 
tered for a course load of twelve hours for that semester. If a student 
is working to defray a portion of his expenses, his course load will 
be adjusted accordingly. Since individuals vary in capacity, care is 
taken that each student shall have a reasonable balance in his labor- 
study load. Students who are below average will be required to take 
less work than the following schedule indicates. Those with abqve 
average ability and scholastic achievement may be permitted to at* 
tempt a slightly heavier program. These schedules are designed to 
insure sound scholarship and an essential safeguarding of health. 

Labor Hours Class Hours In exceptional cases a student, 

None 16 other than with superior health and 

15 to 20 Not over 16 abilit 3 r ' ma ^ u P on the recommendation 
20 to 25 14 of his adviser and with the approval 

25 to 30 12 of the Dean of the College, register 

1°, !° 11 XT 8 , t0 10 o ^r eighteen hours if he has a grade 
35 to 40 Not over 8 & ° 

Above 40 Not over 6 point average of 1.5. 

Except by approval of the Curriculum and Academic Standards 
Committee, no student may receive more than eighteen semester 
hours credit during any semester. Correspondence work in progress 
is counted in the current load. 

Once a student's work-study schedule is arranged, and be has 
entered upon his duties, his labor foreman may not require extra 
service without proper arrangement with the Dean of the College. 

Conversely, instructors may not require exceptional out-of-class as- 
signments or appointments that interfere with his regular scheduled 
work program without making proper arrangements with the 
Dean of the College. 

Except by permission of the President's Council, the mini- 
mum course load of a student living in one of the residence halls 
is eight hours. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 37 

Admission of Sophomores to Upper Biennium Courses. 
A sophomore may register for one or more upper biennium courses, 
for upper biennium credit, provided he has earned, with an average 
of *'C" or above, fifty hours including basic freshman and sopho- 
more courses already taken, and provided, also, that his current 
registration completes the fulfillment of lower biennium basic 
requirements including the meeting of standards of English per- 
formance. (See page 44) 

In exceptional cases, a sophomore may be admitted to an 
upper biennium course for lower biennium credit. A sophomore 
desiring admission to an upper biennium course makes application 
on a blank obtainable in the registrar's office. 

Special Hours. On approval of the Division Chairman and 
of the instructor concerned, and of the Dean, a junior or a senior 
may earn an additional hour of credit in connection with an upper- 
biennium course completed or being carried, provided he has com- 
pleted or is currently completing without special registration mot 
less than fifteen hours in the department concerned. 

Auditing Courses. By permission of the Dean of the Col- 
lege and the instructor concerned, a student may audit a course 
which does not consist entirely or in part of laboratory. He should 
register as an auditor at the time of registration. No credit is 
given for a course audited. The tuition charge is one-half that for 
credit, and the course counts at half value in the student load. 

Reduction in Credit. A student should fulfill all basic 
requirements (See page 48) while he is registered in the lower 
biennium. For seniors taking lower biennium required courses the 
credit in these courses will be reduced one-third to one-half the 
regular amount (the reduction not to result in fractional hours). 
This practice reduces the student's total hours' credit but does not 
affect the fulfilling of specific course requirements. 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 
Students are classified by the Dean of the College. The classi- 
fication for which a student qualifies at the first semester registra- 
tion ordinarily continues through both semesters. A student who 
desires reclassification at the beginning of the second semester 



38 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

shall make written application to the Registrar and must meet 
the full requirements for the particular classification sought except 
that (1) officers of classes may not be reclassified and (2) seniors 
must remain in the junior class unless they are candidates for 
graduation for the current year. Candidates for graduation who 
did not join the junior class will be required to pay to the senior 
class an amount equivalent to the junior class fee. 

The following schedule governs the classification of students 
entering the first semester and new students the second semester: 

Freshmen. Completion of a four-year high school course, 
except that freshmen may be admitted conditionally on the comple- 
tion of fourteen acceptable units, and on condition that the remain- 
ing two units are taken during the first year on the college campus. 

Sophomores. Twenty-four semester hours of "C average, the 
hours to include basic requirements completed with the average 
computed separately on hours earned in Southern Missionary College. 

Juniors. Fifty-six semester hours M C" average, the hours to in- 
clude basic requirements completed, and the average computed sep- 
arately on hours earned in Southern Missionary College. Registration 
for the junior year shall include any lower biennium basic require- 
ments not already fulfilled. 

Seniors 1st Semester 2nd Semester.. 
For full standing 91 125 

For full standing (Theoi.) 103 137 

For summer session 82 99 

For summer session (Theol.) 94 111 

The above semester hours must be of "C" average, based 
on credits earned at Southern Missionary College. For full standing 
current registration must satisfy all remaining requirements for a 
degree. 

For membership in the senior class organization the senior 
year's work must have been carried satisfactorily to the time of 
the organization of the class. If a course is taken by correspond- 
ence during the senior year, the transcript of credit must be on file 
in the Registrar's office six weeks before graduation. Incompletes 
must be removed by the middle of the last term. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 39 

Special. A person at least twenty-one years of age who does 
not meet the minimum entrance requirements. For further infor- 
mation, see "Adult Special" under "Admission," page 32. 

ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS 

Inasmuch as class instruction provides the basis for college 
learning, development, and credit, regular attendance at all classes 
is expected of every student. The record of daily class and laboratory 
attendance is kept by each instructor. Each absence naturally reduces 
automatically the student's grasp of the subject material considered 
and lowers proportionately his mark or grade in the course. 

Explanation blanks for class absences due to illness or other 
emergencies are presented to the teacher not later than the second 
class meeting following the absence and only after having the 
approval of the Dean of Men (for all men) or of the Dean ot 
Women (for all women). These blanks are necessary to authorize 
the instructor to permit the student to make up tests or other 
assignments missed because of the absence. Special prior requests in 
writing for unusual class absences will be considered by the 
Government Committee. Cases of repeated absences (ordinarily 
when a student misses two or more class periods in succession) 
are reported to the Dean of Men (for men) or to the Dean of 
Women (for women).. These officers will contact the student's 
counselor in an effort to solve the problem. 

Special allowances regarding class attendance are granted 
students on the dean's list who are not subject to reduced marks for 
absences providing the teacher of the course involved consents and 
providing the student satisfactorily meets the scholastic requirements 
of the course. 

Three tardinesses count as one absence. Students entering a 
class late in the semester are regarded as having taken absences dur- 
ing the class periods previously missed. 

CHAPEL ATTENDANCE 
A faithful record of chapel attendance is maintained in the 
office of the Registrar. The record of attendance at worship and 
at the various regular religious services is kept by the Dean of 
Men and the Dean of Women. Flagrant cases of repeated non- 
attendance will be referred to the President's Administrative Council. 



40 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

CITIZENSHIP RECORD 

An item "citizenship" appears on the grade report and on 
the permanent record card of each student. The various criteria 
for determining citizenship are: 

a. General attitude 

b. Compliance with social regulations 

c. Dining room conduct 

d. Attitude toward and regularity in attendance at religious 
services, worship, vespers, Sabbath school, church 

e. Dormitory conduct 

f. Obedience to campus automobile regulations 

g. Personal grooming and room cleanliness 
h. Chapel attendance 

Three citizenship grades (or marks) employed are as follows: 

1. Satisfactory, S. 

2. Improvement desirable, I. 

3. Unsatisfactory, U. 

A committee of representative students and officers of the 
College recommend one of the above three grades for each student 
at the end of each nine- week period and the final grade is authoriz- 
ed by the President's Administrative Council. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION WORK 

Southern Missionary College offers no extra-mural instruction; 
therefore, all credits from this college must be earned in residence. 

The maximum of correspondence and/or extension credit 
which may apply on a four-year curriculum is sixteen hours; for 
a two-year curriculum, eight hours. 

Students may not take correspondence work in the upper bien- 
nium on their major. Exceptions to this are granted only on approval 
of the Curriculum and Academic Standards Committee. A student 
may not repeat by correspondence a course in which he has received 
an F. 

In no case may more than eighteen hours of residence 
work and correspondence work be carried in a semester. To 
count as accepted credit, correspondence work must carry a 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 41 

grade of "C" or above, must be applicable in the curriculum for 
which the student is enrolled, and must have been taken by per- 
mission of the college during a period of resident attendance, or 
followed by earning in this college twelve hours with a scholarship 
average of "G" 

No credit will be accepted from a correspondence school that 
is taken while the student is enrolled in Southern Missionary College, 
unless that course is not being offered by the college. 

Credit for work taken with any standard correspondence 
school is granted as follows: (1) A grade of ^D" on any corre- 
spondence work may not be recorded, (2) a grade of "C is ac- 
cepted without examination provided it is not to be applied on a 
major, and (3) a grade of "C" with validation examination, or of 
"B" or above without examination, is accepted on a major. 

EXAMINATIONS 

Course Examinations, Examinations are given in all courses 
at the end of each semester. Students are expected to take examina- 
tions at the time scheduled, unless prevented by illness or other 
unavoidable circumstance. 

For admission by examinations. See page 34. 

Exemption Examination. A student may be exempt by 
examination from a specific course requirement for graduation 
(such as within the basic group, or within or accompanying a 
major or a minor) provided he passes with a grade of at least "C" 
a comprehensive examination covering the particular course. The 
examination for exemption shall be authorized by the Curriculum 
and Academic Standards Committee. No hours of credit are given 
for an exemption examination. The fee is $2.00. 

Special Examinations. Special examinations are given when 
justified by circumstances, such as sickness or necessary absence from 
the campus. 

A re-examination is permitted only by consent of the Curri- 
culum and Academic Standards Committee. 

GRADES AND REPORTS 

Midsemester and semester reports of the scholastic standing of 
each student are issued to the student and his parent or guardian. 
Semester grades are kept on permanent record by the college. 

The following system of grading is used: 



i2 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

Grade Points 
Grade per Semester Hour 

A — Superior 3 

B — Above average 2 

C — Average 1 

D — Below average 

F — Failure Minus 1 

E — Warning for "below passing" scholarship; 

no grade higher than l, D" in the course 
for the semester; becomes ,l F M if not re- 
moved within a year after date reported. 

I — Incomplete because of illness or other 
unavoidable delay; an incomplete received 
during the first semester must be removed 
by the end of the second semester or it be- 
comes an F; incompletes received during 
the second semester must be removed be- 
fore the end of the first semester of the 
following school year. 

W — Withdrew passing 

Wf— Withdrew failing Minus 1 

Au — Audit 

S — Satisfactory (for music organizations only) 
U — Unsatisfactory (for music organizations only) 

A grade correctly reported to the Registrar can be changed 
only upon repetition of the course. When a course is repeated to 
raise a grade, it must be done before a more advanced course in 
the same field is completed. Credit may not be earned in a course 
after a more advanced course in the same field has been taken. 
No grades will be recorded for a course for which the individual 
concerned has not registered. 

DEAN'S LIST 
This honor list, compiled each semester, is composed of the 
names of those juniors and seniors who carried twelve hours or 
more for two successive semesters and who for those semesters 
earned a grade of "B" or above in each course carried. 

HONOR ROLL 

An honor roll is compiled twice each semester. It contains the 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 43 

name of each student who for the period covered has carried a 
minimum of eight semester hours, has attained a "B" average, and 
has received no grade of "I," "E," "F," or "Wf." 

GRADUATION STANDARDS 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 

A student may qualify for graduation by fulfilling all cur- 
riculum requirements for the degree or diploma sought and by 
meeting the standards of the college as to character. A student 
who discontinues attendance for a full calendar year must meet the 
requirements for graduation published in a catalog current after 
his re-entrance. 

A student who has received one bachelor's degree may re- 
ceive a second bachelor's degree provided that all requirements foi 
both degrees are fully met, and provided also that the curriculum 
offered for the second degree includes at least thirty semester hours 
earned in an additional year of residence and not counted for the 
first degree. 

The responsibility for meeting graduation requirements rests 
primarily with the student. He should acquaint himself with the 
published requirements and plan his courses so as to fulfill them, 
for he is eligible for graduation only when the records in ihe 
registrar's office show he has met all requirements listed in the 
college catalog. 

GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATIONS 
During recent years an increasing number of graduate and 
professional schools and employers have been requiring applicants 
for employment or admission to file, together with other credentials, 
their scores in the Graduate Record Examinations. To make these 
scores available to graduates as well as to provide a national 
standard norm by which to evaluate the teaching and learning 
processes at Southern Missionary College, these tests are now re- 
quired to be taken by every candidate for a baccalaureate degree 
during the final semester of his senior year. The college ad- 
ministers the test each year on the Institutional Testing Program 
whereby the entire senior class writes on the test on the same day. 

National Sophomore Testing Program. The college par- 
ticipates every second year in the National Sophomore Testing Pro- 



REQUEUED STANDARDS OF ENGLISH PERFORMANCE 

The Committee on Curriculum and Academic Standards has 
set up definite requirements in English speaking and writing, and 
in reading speed and comprehension which must be achieved: 

(1) By each and every individual student who is a candidate 
for promotion from a lower biennium curriculum to full and 
unconditional standing in an upper biennium curriculum. 

(2) By each and every candidate for graduation from any one 
of the two-year or the four-year curriculums of the college. 

These requirements will be entirely independent of course 
credits in English grammar, composition, and rhetoric. They can 
not be met merely by passing a formal written examination of the 
conventional type. 

Each student's actual record of spontaneous, habitual, con- 
tinuing performance in English usage will be taken as an indica- 
tion of his real progress at any given time, in measuring up to 
the Committee's clearly defined standards. His actual performance 
(not merely his knowledge) must demonstrate conclusively: 

(1) That he has never had, or that he has successfully over- 
come, long standing habits of (a) incorrect spelling, (b) 
faulty sentence structure, and (c) gross mispronunciation. 

(2) That he has achieved satisfactory scores (a) in reading 
speed and (b) in reading comprehension (vocabulary). 

EVERY STUDENT WILL RECEIVE, AT THE TIME OF REGISTRA- 
TION, A PRINTED BOOKLET GIVING THESE STANDARDS AND 
FULL INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO GET READY TO MEET THEM. 
IF IT IS NECESSARY, SPECIAL REMEDIAL COURSES WILL BE 
ORGANIZED TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE. 

Every teacher in the College is a teacher of English (outside 
of the classroom as well as in it) and is expected: 

(1) To help every individual student in his classes (and when- 
ever an appropriate opportunity occurs in informal conver- 
sation any where else on the campus) to measure up, as 
soon as possible, to the standards outlined in the booklet. 

(2) To 'help the Committee on Curriculum and Academic Stand- 
ards to secure as accurate and adequate a record as is 
possible, at any given time, of each individual student's 
actual performance in speaking and in writing (both in 
and outside of the classroom). 

STUDENTS FROM NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES 

The Required Standards of English Performance set forth above 
are obviously inappropriate for students from non-English-speak- 
ing countries who are planning to return to their homes in such 
countries. The pattern of requirements in English usage is, there-

gram. These tests are of general achievement and are valuable in 
indicating the standing of individual students in terms of national* 
norms. They also provide the scientific basis for a valid judgment 
of the scholastic standing of the college. 

CANDIDACY FOR GRADUATION 
To be graduated at commencement, a student must have com- 
pleted all requirements for graduation. A student may become a 
candidate for graduation when he enters upon the semester during 
which it will be possible for him to complete all the requirements 
for his graduation. Candidates for graduation at the close of the 
ensuing summer session are permitted to participate in the consecra- 
tion and baccalaureate services with the class finishing in June, but 
do not appear as graduation candidates at the June commencement. 
Formal application for graduation should be made at the Re- 
gistrar's office during the first semester of the senior year. All 
resident candidates for graduation must be members of one of the 
senior classes. See Standards of English Performance Required, on 
page 44. 

GRADUATION WITH HONORS 
A candidate for graduation with a grade point average of 2.35 
or above, and whose record shows no grade lower than a "C may 
be considered for graduation with honors. Other criteria for this 
distinction shall include such factors as exemplary character, note- 
worthy achievement in students activities, comprehensive examination 
results, and outstanding accomplishments in his major field of study 
or in independent study courses. The initiative in the procedure 
is a suggestion from a student's major professor to the Curriculum 
and Academic Standards Committee which in turn may recommend 
the candidate to the faculty for approval of this honor. Transfer 
students must have earned 36 hours in residence to qualify for 
graduation with honors. 

GRADUATION IN ABSENTIA 
Each candidate for graduation must be present to receive his 
diploma unless granted written permission by the President of the 
College to be graduated in absentia. Written application should be 
made early in the second semester of the senior year and permission 
will be granted only in cases of evident necessity. 



46 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

The chief commencement exercise is held annually in May or 
June. However, whenever there are approximately eight or more can- 
didates for summer graduation, a commencement exercise is also 
held in August. Candidates for graduation in August participate in 
all the closing exercises except at the commencement in June. 
No candidate is eligible to receive his diploma or degree until 
his requirements are completed. A candidate who completes his 
work at the close of the first semester may receive his diploma 
in absentia or be graduated with the class at the ensuing commence- 
ment.

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN THEOLOGY 
(For prospective ministers, see pages 55-57) 

Southern Missionary College divides the ministerial curriculum 
into two parts: a pre-ministerial section including the first two 
years in college (lower biennium) ; and the ministerial curriculum 
proper, including the last two years (upper biennium). Entrance 
into the ministerial curriculum is limited to students approved by 
the sub-Committee on Ministerial Recommendations. This sub-com- 
mittee is guided by the following standards and procedures: 

I. STANDARD OF EVALUATION 

The student who plans to enter the ministry should meet the following 
qualifications : 

1. He should give evidence of a deep spiritual experience and manifest 
a sensible and sound balance in Christian living. 

2. He should be physically sound and in good health, maintaining an ac- 
ceptable standard of personal hygiene, 

3. He should be well-adjusted socially and show promise of normal 
maturity. 

4. He should possess a pleasing personality, a talent for leadership, and 
give promise of ability in public speaking. 

5. He should give evidence of industry, initiative, punctuality, depend- 
ability, and neatness. 

6. He should be co-operative, adaptable, and able to get along with others. 

7. He should be a man of integrity in business matters. 

8. He should indicate his ability to maintain a home on the income of 
an intern and a minister. 

9. Morally he should be above reproach in his relations with men and 
women, and in his own private conduct. 



* Suggesed Elective in Education 



54 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 



10. If married, he should have a home life in keeping with the ideals of 
a Christian. If contemplating marriage, he should be expected to 
maintain high standards in his courtship and selection of a wife. 

11. He should feel, and be able to give evidence, that he has been called 
to the ministry, and that no other type of work for God, can, or will, 
satisfy him. 

12. He should be an active participant in the missionary endeavors of his 
church and his Missionary Volunteer Society; he should be able loyally 
and intelligently to take his part in organized group activity; he should 
become progressively more conversant with organizational procedures 
and committee techniques. 

13. He should achieve a grade-point average of 1.25 in the lower bien- 
nium before applying for admission to the ministerial curriculum or 
to the upper biennium of the arts and sciences curriculum with a major 
in religion. 

a. It is understood that failure to reach the grade-point average spe- 

cified bars him from admission. If he elects to make a second 
attempt, repetition in low-grade courses is limited to twenty-five 
per cent of the total hours earned up to the time of the applica- 
tion, and no course may be repeated twice. 

b. An applicant not admitted to the upper biennium because of a 
low grade-point average shall not lose his draft status unless he 
exceeds the limits set in the paragraph preceding. 

c. A grade-point average of 1.25 must be maintained in the upper 
biennium. 



II. PROCEDURES 

1. A freshman is provisionally enrolled in the pre-ministerial curriculum 
(lower biennium) at the beginning of his first semester. At the end 
of the first nine weeks, he is to apply to the sub-Committee on Min- 
isterial Recommendations for confirmation of the enrollment. 

a. A freshman who ranks in the lowest third of the national norms 

of the battery of entrance tests must present to the sub-commit- 
tee a request for special consideration. 

b. A freshman giving evidence of emotional instability, unchristian 
character, or social maladjusment, is not to be admitted, even 
provisionally, to the curriculum mentioned above. 

2. A student hoping to enter the ministerial curriculum, must, on com- 
pleting his sophomore requirements, apply for admission to the upper 
biennium. 

a. Applications may be presented at the end of the summer session, 
and at mid-term of each semester. 

b. Candidates denied permission to major (admission to the upper 
biennium), may build a minor in religion. 

3. A student transferring from another college is to be admitted provision- 
ally. On completion of fourteen hours of credit, the student is to apply 
for permanent admission. Admission will be granted if a grade-point 
average of 1.25 has been maintained, and if the student meets the 
other qualifications deemed necessary by the sub-Committee on Minis- 
terial Recommendations. 

4. Each semester each pre-ministerial and ministerial student is requested 
to report his participation in missionary and church activities to the 
chairman of the sub-Committee on Ministerial Recommendations. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLBOM 55 

To qualify for the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Theology 
from this curriculum, a candidate must fulfill the following re- 
quirements : 

1. The general entrance requirements as listed on pages 32 
and 33. 

2. The completion of 137 hours, with a minimum of forty- 
eight hours of upper biennium credit. Not less than thirty hours, of 
which twenty must be in the senior year, are required to be earned 
in residence at this college. 

3. Spend one summer in the organized soul- winning evange- 
listic work. It is highly recommend that this requirement be ful- 
filled by spending 350 hours in Literature Evangelism. With the 
prior approval of the Division of Religion, the requirement may 
be fulfilled by spending one summer as a helper in an evangelistic 
effort, or by a summer in the Field School of Evangelism.

take Religion 5. Forty hours is the maximum number which may be

suggested lower biennium schedule 

While the student may be quite certain on entrance that he 
intends to take the ministerial curriculum, the increasing accuracy 
in self-evaluation made possible by college life sometimes causes 
a change in his aims and objectives. If specialization is started in 
the freshman year, a shift in curriculum usually means ^a loss in 
credits. In order, therefore, to give the student time to find himself 
in terms of his life work, the first year of the pre-ministerial curricu- 
lum has been arranged as a fitting introduction to any arts and 
sciences curriculum. 

For candidates for the B.A. in Theology who enter without 
deficiencies, and expect to carry a full load of class work, the follow- 
ing suggested schedule for the first two years of the pre-ministerial 
curriculum is recommended.

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN TEACHER EDUCATION 

(Elementary and Secondary) 

A student who wishes to follow a career of teaching in Sev- 
enth-day Adventist schools or in the public school system on either 
the elementary or secondary level should enroll m the four-year cur- 
riculum leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. The curriculum 
has been planned to enable a student looking forward to teaching 
to obtain state, as well as denominational, certification. The pro- 
gram requires a General Education core of studies and a Professional 
Education core. Students planning to teach, whether on the elemen- 
tary or on the secondary level, all take this core curriculum and 
then specialize in the respective areas. 

The Collegedale Elementary School and the Collegedale Acad- 
emy serve as laboratory schools for students preparing to teach, 
affording a rich opportunity for observation and student teaching. 

For admission without deficiency, entrance units as indicated 
on page 32 must be presented. General requirements for students 
who desire a degree from Southern Missionary College are listed 
on pages 32 and 33. In addition, it is expected that students plan- 
ning on teaching should show seriousness of purpose in order to 
be admitted to this curriculum.

Prospective teachers should use their electives in such a way as 
to certify in three areas of instruction as listed on pages 61-63. 

A student who wishes to receive the Bachelor of Arts degree 
will take one of the above curricula only; he must fulfill the entrance 
requirements for a B.S. as listed on page 32, and he must use his 
electives in such a way as to have a major and to fulfill the required 
hours of foreign language. 

TEACHER CERTIFICATION 

Effective September 1, 1953 the State of Tennessee will discon- 
tinue issuing permanent teaching certificates. From that time onward 
provisional, five-year certificates will be granted on the basis of an 
earned bachelor's degree that incorporates certain prescribed courses 
in general and professional preparation. The teacher education pro- 
gram described above fulfills these requirements. 

Certification for Grades 1-9 
A student completing the four-year curriculum is eligible to

PRE-PROFESSIONAL AND PRE-TECHNICAL CURRICULUMS 

PRE-MEDICAL 
Nearly all medical colleges now require a bachelor's degree 
of all candidates. Therefore students who expect to transfer later 
to a medical college should register as arts and sciences students, 
selecting suitable majors and minors which will qualify them for a 
Bachelor of Arts degree. All other essentials for entrance to a 
medical college can be met by selecting proper electives. 

Students planning to transfer to the College of Medical Evan- 
gelists, Loma Linda, California, should select entrance courses as 
outlined in the current bulletin issued by that college. Currently 
these essential courses include: 

Semester Hours 

Biology (preferably 45, 46) 8 

v English 1-2 6 

♦ Foreign Language (French, German, or Spanish) 6-18 

-General Chemistry 1-2 8 

General Embryology 145 2 

Organic Chemistry 53-54 8 

Physics 1-2 8 

Quantitative Analysis 102 3 

and a minimum of four hours of religion for each year of college 
work offered for entrance. 

The quality of scholarship required for entrance demands that 
a grade-point average in natural sciences and other subjects, figured 
separately, should be not less than 1.5 and a higher grade point 
average is desirable. (Actually the College of Medical Evangelists 
is not now accepting any candidates with less than a 1.7 grade- 
point average.) Students who do not reach this grade-point average 
will not be recommended. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 75 

PRE-DENTAL 

Class A dental colleges require for admission two years (sixty 
hours) of college work, including certain prescribed courses. 
Students planning to transfer to the Dental School of the College 
of Medical Evangelists, Loma Linda, California, should select 
courses as outlined in the current bulletin issued by that college. 
Currently these essential courses are included in the suggested 
program of study below:

PRE-NURSING 

The prerequisites stated on pages 32 and 33 satisfy the admis- 
sion requirements of most schools of nursing. Since there is some 
variation in admission requirements, a student looking forward 
to nurses' training should familiarize himself or herself with the 
particular requirements of the school in mind. Many schools of 
nursing also require for admission one unit of physics from the 
secondary school. 

Upon entrance, college prenursing students are given tests in 
arithmetic for nurses and in reading comprehension and speed. 
Remedial work in arithmetic and reading will be required of all 
those who do not pass these tests with satisfactory standing.

biennium course for lower biennium credit. Application for per- 
mission to do this is made on a blank in the registrar's office. 

Course numbers separated by a hyphen (e.g., 1-2) represent 
year courses, the semesters to be taken in order given. Credit for 
the first semester only will not apply toward graduation from any 
curriculum. 

Course numbers separated by a colon (e.g., 11:12) are year 
courses, of which either semester may be taken first, but both semes- 
ters must be taken before the credit may apply toward graduation 
from any curriculum. 

Majors and Minors: Available majors and minors, with 
requirements for each, are listed in their respective sections. In- 
formation concerning majors may be found in the section on 
curriculums. 



CAN ONE LIVE COMFORTABLY 
WITHOUT THE APPLIED ARTS? 

Had you ever stopped to think why Americans enjoy today the 
highest standard of living that has ever been known in any period 
of the world's history? Well, we have had among our members 
many millions of cunning artisans and tinkers from many different 
countries in all parts of the world. Out of this "melting pot" jthe 
skilled labors of many and diverse origins have developed an in- 
ventive genius that is the wonder of the modern world. Our enter- 
prise as a people is the result not alone of the engineering sk-Ul 
of our promoters and business managers, but also of the applied 
art of the men in our shops, mills, and factories. 

And we have been an industrious people Our pioneers early 
learned that man cannot long be a consumer without being a pro- 
ducer, that each normal person must contribute his unique part to 
the total supply of the nation's or the world's goods if he expects to 
share in the use of these goods, that it is good for man to labor — 
to work with his hands — and to "earn his bread in the sweat of his 
face/' that the urge to create, whether it be in wood or stone or 
metal or on canvas or the printed page, is a God-given impulse, 
which finds its happy fulfillment in the production of some useful 
finished product. 

Life demands that we live in families, that we produce, prepare, 
and eat food, that we make and wear clothes, that we build and 
furnish houses, that we earn and spend money, and that we par- 
ticipate in social affairs. All these things we must do for our sur- 
vival. 

Did you ever think how much it contributes to one's peace of 
mind and to the happiness of has home to be able to keep his ac- 
counts straight and to have a correct record of personal and family 
income and disbursements? Isn't success in life largely conditioned 
by whether we do or do not know how to conserve and properly 
manage our own personal, family and business resources? 

Could we as a nation long survive without some knowledge of 
the science of agriculture? Is it not possible for the average work- 
er's family to produce a considerable portion of its food from a 
well-kept domestic garden (including berries and fruits)? 

Isn't it important for men as well as women to know food values 
and to be able, at least on occasion, to prepare and to serve nutri- 
tious and palatable meals? Do we not all need to make or choose 
our own clothes and must we not, therefore, know materials, de- 
signs, colors, values? 

Is it possible to convert a mere house into an attractive and com- 
fortable home without knowing how to make or choose suitable 
furniture or without some knowledge and skill in the art of making 
or choosing suitable interior decorations?

VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM 

G. T. Gott, Chairman 

Supervisors 

Albert L. Anderson Ray Olmstead 

M. Connell George B. Pearman 

John B. Pierson 

The vocational training program was established for the pur- 
pose of giving opportunity to students to learn a trade while work- 
ing in the College Industries to pay for their formal education. 
It is also designed to be of interest to those students who do not 
desire to go all the way through college, but who want to broaden 
their social and intellectual experience for several years beyond 
the high school level. 

A total of eight semester hours of credit will be allowed on 
a four-year degree curriculum, four hours of which will apply on 
the vocational requirement, and the other four as electives. A total 
of eight hours will be allowed toward a printing minor. Eight 
hours will also be allowed on the two-year industrial arts curriculum. 

For each semester hour of credit, the student will have to 
present a cumulative record in his trade book of 270 hours of 
supervised work in the respective industry. Tuition charges will 
be at the same rate as for other academic credits. Work done by 
the students in the industrial or service departments will receive 
the regular rate of pay. 

In addition to the required supervised work, each student 
will be assigned collateral readings and be required to render 
reports covering subjects related to the industry in which he is 
earning credit. Regular on-the-job conferences with the supervisor, 
as well as specially arranged formal conferences or lectures are 
also required. Passing grades are given for the prompt fulfillment 
of collateral assignments, faithfulness in meeting work appoint- 
ments, and an ever-increasing skill in the trade which the student 
is studying. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 95 

This vocational training program is supervised and controlled 
by a committee of three, composed of the chairman and two mem- 
bers of the faculty Curriculum and Academic Standards Committee 
appointed by the Dean of the College. This committee of three 
coordinates the vocational training program in the various industrial 
departments by regularly inspecting the quality and quantity of 
work required in each, aiding with the preparation of collateral 
reading and report assignments, and helping to arrange periodic 
lectures covering the different trades being learned. 

The following vocational training classes will be offered in 
1953-54. A maximum of two hours may be earned in each.

Can One Live Comfortably Without the Applied Arts? 

(Continued from page 80) 

Would it not add much to the comfort and convenience of most of 
us as well as to our economic well-being if we knew how to care 
for and repair the many mechanical appliances which are in use 
in all modern homes? 

Has not type-writing come to be almost as important for many 
people as hand-writing? It is not only a means of earning a liveli- 
hood for many; it is a great time saver for all who have any con- 
siderable amount of writing to do. (Woodrow Wilson composed his 
principal state papers and all his notable public addresses on his 
own typewriter.) And is not shorthand a great time saver for many 
who do not use it as a means of earning a livelihood? 

Applied arts can contribute significantly not only to the economic 
comfort and well-being, but also to the natural, wholesome recrea- 
tional interests of all normal individuals and groups. 



Education is the process by which an individual 
develops toward the highest service possible for 
him. 

— Stuart H. Rowe 



We must take the pleasure and pain that super- 
vene upon our actions as symptoms of our condi- 
tion. The man who abstains from bodily pleasures 
and actually enjoys doing so is temperate, while 
the man who does so but dislikes it is intemper- 
ate. The man who faces danger and enjoys it, or at 
any rate is not pained by it, is brave; but the man 
who faces it with pain is a coward. For goodness 
of character has to do with pleasures and pains. It 
is pleasure that makes us do what is bad, and pain 
that makes us abstain from what is right. That is 
why we require to be trained from our earliest 
youth, as Plato has it, to feel pleasure and pain at 
the right things. True education is just that. 

— Aristotle 



The child is entitled to his scientific inheritance, to 
his literary inheritance, to his aesthetic inheritance, 
to his institutional inheritance, and to his religious 
inheritance. Without them he cannot become a 



truly educated man.

WHY STUDY PSYCHOLOGY AND EDUCATION? 

Know thyself! This is about the best counsel ever given by 
poet or prophet, or sage. 

The purpose of our courses in psychology is to aid the student 
in understanding himself, those with whom he will be associated, 
and people in general. The success of the physician, the minister, 
the teacher, and of all others whose work is largely personal is 
dependent today to an ever increasing degree on has ability to 
understand the complex psychological factors that determine one's 
so-called personality. It is no longer physical and mental ability 
or even the extent of preparation that in the end makes foz 
success, but rather one's ability to understand and work with 
other people. 

The courses in such subjects as Principles of Education, for 
example, are not only required in the programs for the prepara- 
tion of teachers and ministers, but are also of unquestioned 
value for those who are to become parents, or church officers, or to 
bear other responsibility for the education and guidance of our 
youth. 

Do you need help in choosing a life companion? What are the 
considerations that should be taken into account in making this 
very important decision. Courses in psychology and education 
can help you by demonstrating effectively that one's emotions 
can easily throw his judgment out of gear if be isn't on guard. 

Our college offers help in preparing its students for a happy 
home life. Do you know that in nine cases out of nine-and-a-half 
you will be a father or a mother. Are you ready for that? Don't 
think that the wisdom of a parent will drop upon you as the 
gentle dew from heaven. You have to learn it; you have to earn it 

Think a minute. 1 If you require training as a minister, or a 
teacher, or a nurse, or a doctor, or an auto mechanic, or a 
gardener, all of which are simple things in comparison with being 
a father or a mother, how can you succeed in this most delicate 
and difficult role of parent, unless you receive training for it? 
Do you know that a course is offered to prepare you for parent- 
hood? 

Do you need help in choosing a life work? Maybe you aim to 
be a preacher of righteousness, maybe a teacher of truth. Perhaps 
you will be a physician and surgeon, or a nurse, relieving the 
ills of mankind. You may be a business man, or a secretary. 
Or you may follow the career of a farmer, or a mechanic, or a 
clerk, or a housewife. You may go across the seas, to carry the 
gospel to the heathen by one means or another, according* to 
your talents and interests and capabilities. 

Our Education courses prepare you to take full advantage of 
our counseling service in making your final choice.

CERTIFICATION 

For instruction regarding Teacher Education and Certification, 
both state and denominational, see pages 60 to 63. 



The object of education — to restore in man the 
image of his Maker, to bring him back to the 
perfection in which he was created, to promote 
the development of body, mind, and soul that 
the divine purpose in his creation might be real- 
ized. 

— Ellen G. White 



Four years of pure arts and science work may 
create a distaste for vocation, while four years of 
exclusively technical work may mean arrested de- 
velopment if not atrophy of culture. The assump- 
tion that the cultural and the vocational are mutu- 
ally exclusive in education is absurd. The real an- 
tagonism is between a culture remote from life, 
which despises work, and a vocational training 
which has no time for culture. 

— Albert Duncan Yocum 



A sound mind in a sound body, is a short, but full 
description of a happy state in this world. 

— John Locke 



Education has for its principal object the forma- 
tion of character. 



— Herbert Spencer 



A good education is that which gives to the body 
and to the soul all the beauty and perfection of 
which they are capable. 

— Plato 



103 



WHY STUDY THE FINE ARTS? 

The fine arts provide a means o! communication which all men 
understand. And the urge to create is all but universal. This 
urge finds expression at its best in a Shakespeare sonnet, in a 
Handel oratorio, in a Michaelangelo mural, in a St. Gaudens 
statue, or in a Taj Mahal or a George Washington Bridge. 

The courses offered in the Division of Fine" Arts, though limited 
in number, have been planned to meet the needs of: 

1. All students who desire to learn, while in college, to under- 
stand the part the Fine Arts play in the cultural life of our time and 

2. All who plan to prepare, after college days are over, to 
become practicing artists. 

The aim is to make art a stimulating experience in the world's 
work today, an effective expression of life itself. Aesthetics must 
be clarified and made real — music, poetry, painting, sculpture, 
ceramics, architecture are not made to appear as separate sub- 
jects. Collectively they must provide the functional and the founda- 
tion experiences which students need if they are to explore 
the wide circle of human emotion and endeavor. 

Until the invention of printing the arts constituted an important 
avenue, apart from direct speech, of conveying ideas to the! 
masses. They have been a humanizing influence linking us with 
the past and giving realistic "common touch" with all human 
history. They have made for continuity of culture. 

Holy Writ ascribes significant importance to music as it spans 
history from the time when the "morning stars sang together," 
to the day when the redeemed of the Lord sing the "song 01 
Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb." As a 
source of listening pleasure, as an inspiration to solo and group 
performance, as the basis of theoretical study and research, and 
as a welding influence in home, church* school and community 
affairs, music may be woven into the entire fabric of human life. 

To the college student these facts should be of primary signifi- 
cance. An essential element in a liberal arts education is to 
develop an understanding and appreciation of the arts and to 
stimulate creative ability. If this does not become a vital part 
of college life it will not become a vital part of life itself. In 
that sense such an education suffers a great lack of essential 
perspective. The complex society of the present day sorely needs 
the humanizing influence of the arts, and the college graduate 
can supply much of that need in the area of his service only 
if he has equipped himself to that end.

Education should prepare a person to be useful 
and should inspire him with the ideal of service. 

— Ellen G. White 



To prepare us for complete living is the function 
which education has to discharge; and the only 
rational mode of judging of an educational 
course is, to judge in what degree it discharges 
such function. 

— Herbert Spencer 



Without ideals, without effort, without scholar- 
ship, . . . there is no such thing as education.

WHY STUDY THE ART OF SPEAKING AND WRITING? 

Language is the greatest invention of the human race; it is one 
of the most precious of all our cultural heritages. 

Have you ever thought of the mighty power of words and "fine 
phrases" to breed love or hate in the home, in the school, in the 
community, in the nation/ in the world? Words and "fine pharses" 
can bring peace or war, Dante's Paradiseo or his Inferno. 

The chief requisite of language is that it be pure and kind and 
true, the outward grace of an inward spirit. — Ellen G. White. 

If you would know the real importance of learning to write and 
speak with clarity, effectiveness, and some measure of artistry, read 
what follows: 

The most useful instrument any teacher can acquire for all kinds 
of academic purposes is correct and effective English. — William C. 
Bagley. 

I recognize but one mental acquisition as an essential part of 
the education of a lady or a gentlemen — namely, an accurate and 
refined use of the mother tongue. — Charles W. Eliot. 

The greatest of our language faults is to be conscious of none. — 
Thomas Carlyle. 

When I have something to write, I write it as well as I can and 
then I keep on re-writing it until it offends me no more. — Henry 
James. 

One can learn immediately from any speaker how much he has 
lived by the poverty or the splendor of his language. — Ralph Waldo 
Emerson. 

Let me at least be clear; then if I am wrong I can be corrected. — 
William C. Bagley. 

Colorful language is effective language because it commands 
attention. — Ambrose L. Suhrie. 

The flowering moments of the mind drop half their petals in our 
speech. — Oliver W. Holmes. 

No man can give a truly spiritual interpretation to any of our 
great literary classics unless he has a cultivated voice. — Hiram W. 
Corson. 

Eloquence, like swimming, is an art which all men might learn, 
though so few do. — Ralph Waldo Emerson. 

Without a trained voice no leader in public worship can so vocal- 
ize the great literature of the Bible as effectively to suggest its 
spiritual power. — Byron W. King. 

The poet is the interpreter of the beauty of the universe. The 
speech of God is a foreign language to the great masses of the 
world; the poet stands in the Courtroom of Time and translates the 
words into understandable phrases. — Wilson McDonald. 

Only the men and women who are acquainted with the great 
literary masterpieces of all languages in all ages are prepared for 
world citizenship. — William Peterfield Trent.

WHY DO YOU NEED TO ENOW SCIENCE? 

All thoughtful people in every age of the world's history have 
observed that the Ruler of the Universe is a God of system and 
order. All true science is but an interpretation of the hand writing* 
of God in the material world. 

The fundamental sciences are Chemistry, Biology/ Physics, and 
Mathematics. A knowledge of these sciences is basic in all such 
professions as Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry, Optometry, and 
Nursing — and is useful in all others. 

The influence of chemistry is and has been felt throughout all 
nature and all time. Every pulsation of life within all living things 
is a manifestation of some chemical principle which governs the 
process of nutrition, and the utilization and discard of the elements 
necessary for life. In a similar manner the utilization of all of the 
resources, from our forests, and our farms, from the sea and the 
air, and from deposits in the earth are converted from their natural 
and raw state to other more usable forms, all by the application 
of the principles of applied chemistry. 

As we have learned more about chemistry and have come better 
to understand its principles, we have been able to achieve great 
improvements in clothing, housing, health, tools, transportation, 
communication, and many other things too numerous to mention. 
There is practically no field in which the application of chemistry 
does not at some time make a contribution. 

Physics and mathematics are basic to all developments in 
architecture and engineering. What is heat? light? Electricity? 
What is atomic energy? And what are the practical uses of each 
of these things? How does a knowledge of the laws of physics and 
chemistry contribute to our well being in general and to the 
comforts of life in particular? 

Likewise, a knowledge of biology and bacteriology is basic 
to the scientific study of medicine, dentistry, and the art oi 
healing in all its aspects. The discovery by Pasteur that germs, 
invisible to the eye, are the cause of many of our most devastat- 
ing "plagues" and diseases ushered in a revolution in the practice 
of medicine. 

And a knowledge of the laws of growth is essential to the 
scientific study of education and child development. David, Solo- 
mon, and all of the other truly wise men of all ages have been 
diligent students of nature. 

Even if you are not planning to be a scientist or to practice 
a profession which is based on scientific principles, you should 
remember that you cannot live comfortably in our modern world 
without the elementary scientific concepts which make it possible 
to read and understand modern magazines and the daily papers 
with some degree of understanding and appreciation.

V. NATURAL SCIENCES AND MATHEMATICS 

G, J. Nelson, Chairman 
G. B. Dean H. H. Kuhlman 

E. I. Mohr 

The Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is organized 
for the purpose of giving training in the fundamental sciences of 
biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Many of the courses 
offered in these departments are basic for professional training in 
medicine, dentistry, optometry, nursing, other medical-related pro- 
fessions, and professional engineering and must be taken before en- 
trance into the training for the chosen profession. 

Training for professional careers in Biology, Chemistry, and 
Physics may be had by taking majors in these fields. Minors in related 
fields are taken which contribute to the broader background of t^ie 
student. 

The foundation and survey courses are designed to give the 
general student an appreciation and understanding of the impact of 
the scientific discoveries, and the scientific method of thinking upon 
our modern civilization. 

Relative to spiritual values the following quotation reflects the 
philosophy of the division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics: 

"All true science is but an interpretation of the handwriting of 
God in the material world. Science brings from her research only 
fresh evidences of the wisdom and power of God. Rightly under- 
stood, both the book of nature and the written word make us ac- 
quainted with God by teaching us something of the wise and benefi- 
cent laws through which He works." Ellen G. White: Patriarchs and 
Prophets, page 599.

WHY STUDY THE BIBLE AND RELIGION? 

Do you want to know what the Bible has for you? 
Well, IT CAN TEACH YOU 

1. That the Law of the Lord truly is perfect. 

2. That the wages of sin surely is death. 

3. That whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also surely 
reap. 

4. That the way of the transgressor truly is hard. 

5. That the love of God for His children — for each of them and 
for you — truly passeth all human understanding. 

And IT HAS CONSOLATION FOR YOU, TOO, WHEN YOU NEED IT. 

Listen for a brief moment to what Henry Van Dyke, the profound 
Bible scholar, the inspiring preacher and teacher, the brilliant 
statesman, the gifted poet and literary artist, and withal the man 
of simple faith, has to say about this precious Book: 

"Born in the East and clothed in Oriental form and imagery, 
the Bible walks the ways of all the world with familiar feet and 
enters land after land to find its own everywhere. It has learned 
to speak in hundreds of languages to the heart of man. Children 
listen to its stories with wonder and delight and wise men ponder 
them as parables of life. The wicked and the proud tremble at 
its warnings* but to the wounded and penitent it has a mother's 
voice. It has woven itself into our dearest dreams; so that love, 
friendship, sympathy, devotion, memory, hope, put on the beautiful 
garments of its treasured speech. 

"NO MAN IS POOR OR DESOLATE WHO HAS THIS TREASURE 
FOR HIS OWN. 

"When the landscape darkens, and the trembling pilgrim comes 
to the Valley named of the Shadow, he is not afraid to enteir; 
he takes the rod and the staff of Scripture in his hand; he says 
to friend and comrade: "Goodbye; we shall meet again;" and, 
comforted by that support, he goes toward the lonely pass as 
one who walks through darkness into light." 

The, Old Testament gives us the story of a nation — of God's 
chosen people — and of his leadership of and compassion for His 
wayward and erring children; the New Testament gives us the 
story of Jesus, sent by the Father to be the Teacher and Slavior 
of mankind. It also gives us the story of the establishment and 
development of the early Christian church. 

Religion is not a compartment of life. It IS life. Through a 
careful and sympathetic study of the Bible, religion's textbook, 
our human nature is changed and our souls are re-created in the 
image of our Maker. The Bible is a personal communication from 
Him. It carries a wide variety of counsels to meet a wide variety 
of needs. In it inspired historians make the philosophy of history 
plain; prophets speak as God's messengers; poets inspire; wise 
men counsel; and great ministers preach. Religion is not a set 
of doctrines. It is a study instinct with life— with energy and 
power — derived from contemplating great themes and mighty 
thoughts. 

NO MAN CAN LIVE "THE ABUNDANT LIFE OF THE SPIRIT" 
WITHOUT THE BIBLE AND RELIGION.

VI. RELIGION AND APPLIED THEOLOGY 

Charles E. Wittschiebe, Chairman 
E. C. Banks Elmore J. McMurphy 

Richard Hammill Leif Kr. Tobiassen 

Southern Missionary College, like all other Christian colleges 
established by the Seventh-day Adventist denomination, came into 
existence as a result of faith and sacrifice for the accomplishment of 
a twofold purpose: the teaching of God's Word as the foundation of 
all true education and the training of Christian young people to per- 
form the work of the church. 

The teaching of the Word of God as found in the Holy Bible, 
rests in a special way and primarily upon the Division of Religion 
and Applied Theology. To this sacred function this department is 
dedicated. 

It is in the Bible that the greatest science is presented, the 
science of salvation. In its sacred pages are found the true philosophy 
of life and the meaning of human existence. Through a careful and 
a sympathetic study of the Bible, human nature is changed, the mind 
is strengthened, and the soul is recreated in the image of God; and 
as the student studies the courses offered in this Division, it is 
sincerely hoped that he will enjoy these experiences which are so 
essential to successful living here and in which is his only hope for a 
glorious future in the hereafter. 

The work of the church is headed up in her ministers, and the 
training of young men for the high calling of the ministry is also 
a sacred function of this Division. 

Major in Religion: For ministerial students preparing for the 
Bachelor of Arts in Religion and for major in religion in the arts and 
sciences curriculum see page 55. This major consists of thirty 
hours. Religion 19 and 20, 6l and 62, 165 and 166, are re- 
quired. (See page 135) Religion 1 and 2 and courses in applied 
theology do not apply. Fifteen hours shall be upper biennium credit, 
of which at least the last six hours shall be taken in this college. 
The specific requirements of the ministerial curriculum are found 
on page 53 and following. 



136 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

The committee an Ministerial Recommendations has established 
standards of evaluation by which to judge the fitness of any can- 
didate to enter, or to continue in, the ministerial curriculum, and 
has set up procedures by which these may be applied. See page 54. 

Any student registered in the ministerial curriculum will be 
required to spend one summer in organized soul-winning evan- 
gelistic work. It is recommended that this requirement be fulfilled 
by 350 hours in colporteur evangelism. With the prior approval 
of the Division of Religion the requirement may be fulfilled by 
spending one summer as a helper in an evangelistic effort, or by 
a summer in the Field School of Evangelism. 

Only students with a double major, pre-medical students, 
women, or male students above 35 years of age at the time of their 
graduation will be admitted to the major in religion in the Arts 
and Science curriculum. The requirement of one summer of soul- 
winning work does not apply to the religion majors in the Arts 
and Sciences Curriculum. 

Minor in Religion: A Minor in Religion requires six 
hours in addition to the basic requirement; it shall include six 
hours of upper biennium credit (three earned in this college) and 
does not include credit in applied theology.

What we are is infinitely more important than 
anything we may say or do. — Phillip Brooks. 



Education is the only interest worthy the deep, 
controlling anxiety of the thoughtful man. 

— Wendell Phillips 



Most Americans do value education as a business 
asset, but not as the entrance into the joy of intel- 
lectual experience or acquaintance with the best 
that has been said and done in the past, They 
value it not as an experience, but as a tool. 

— W. H. P. France 



Education may be good or bad, and its goodness 
or badness will be relative to the virtue, wisdom, 
and intelligence of the educator. It is good only 
when it aims at the right kind of product, and 
when the means it adopts are well adapted to 
secure the intended result and are applied intel- 
ligently. 

— Encyclopedia Brittanica 



Education makes a people easy to lead, but diffi- 
cult to drive, easy to govern, but impossible to 
enslave.

HOW CAN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES ENRICH YOUR LIFE 
AND ENHANCE YOUR USEFULLNESS? 

Since the explosion of the atomic bomb over the city of Hiro- 
shima, Japan in 1945, the fundamental problem confronting thought- 
ful men everywhere is whether itelligence, reason and decency can 
be strengthened sufficiently in the near future to win the "race be- 
tween education and world catastrophe." Therefore, a broad and 
a well-integrated knowledge of the social sciences is indispensable 
to all who would dedicate themselves to the task of re-construct- 
ing our modern world on such a pattern of decency that it may be 
nourished by morality and governed under law. 

The basic purpose of all study of the social sciences is a very 
practical one for the reason that these studies are concerned with 
both morals and the intellect. They aim to develop the "good" citi- 
zen who is tolerant, understanding, humane, who believes in the 
inherent freedom and dignity of the individual and in the equality 
of men under God and under law. At least four unique contribu- 
tions to the development of the "good" citizen can be made by the 
social studies as follows: 

(1) an introduction to the practice of intelligently evaluating 
the past experience of the human race. 

(2) a realization that change is inevitable, 

(3) a knowledge that change does not always mean progress, 

(4) and, the understanding that men in every age have struggled 
with the same fundamental problems we face today. 

The specific objectives of the Division of Social Sciences are 

(1) to teach the providences of God in human history and there- 
by encourage the student to apply divine ideals to all human re- 
lationships, 

(2) to foster respect for the great civilizations of the past and an 
appreciation of every true social and political culture, 

(3) to impart a working knowledge of scientific research techni- 
ques and the ways in which they can be applied to the study o! 
man, 

(4) to strengthen the sense of civic responsibility; this should 
lead the student to participate more actively and intelligently in 
the affairs of adult society (including the Student Association 
on the college campus). 

(5) and finally, to encourage the student to prepare himself and 
others for the service of mankind here and for the life hereafter.

INFORMATION PERTINENT TO THE ABOVE SUMMARY 

1. This summary is based upon: a monthly board bill of $35 which is average; a labor rate of 60 cents per hour 
whereas rates vary from 35 cents to 90 cents; normal room rent, laundry, and medical fees, matriculation fees, 
all laboratory fees, all rentals (music or secretarial), organization fees, graduation fees, library fee, etc. No books 
or music lessons are computed into this summary. 

2. The plans as presented are only approximate. With the great variance of board bills and labor rates a student's 
cash obligation after labor deduction may vary considerably from this figure. The amount to be paid is that 
called for by the period statements. The tuition for the first semester will be divided into four equal payments 
beginning with the October statement. The tuition for the second semester will be divided into four equal pay- 
ments beginning with the February statement. The General Fee will be charged on the initial statement after 

entrance. 

3. The figures shown as "Hours of Labor per Week" opposite Plans 3, 4, and 5 are the maximum allowed. Therefore 
students below average in scholarship will be required to work less than the hours indicated. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 149 

EXPENSES 

Each student entering college, after having met the full 
financial and labor requirement, has actually covered only part 
of the full cost of his instruction and maintenance. The operating 
deficit is covered by gifts, subsidies, and funds from other sources. 
The educational opportunity afforded each student in Southern 
Missionary College represents a large investment in buildings and 
equipment, averaging more than two thousand dollars for each 
student enrolled. 

ROOM OR HOUSING DEPOSIT 
Dormitory rooms may be reserved by mailing a $5.00 room 
deposit to the Secretary of Admissions at the college between 
May 1 and September 1. The deposit for married student housing 
is $10. This deposit will appear to the credit of the student at 
the time of his departure provided the accommodation is left in 
good order. 

In case the student's application is not accepted, or if notice 
of nonattendance is given the college by August 1, the deposit 
will be refunded. 

LATE REGISTRATION 

For late registration $5.00 

See page 3 for statement of the exact day and hour when each 
student is expected to present himself for testing and/or registration. 

ADVANCE DEPOSIT AND MATRICULATION FEE 

Advance Guarantee Deposits are expected of all students 
including veterans whose total charges from the college are 
not covered by the G.I. Bill of Rights. 

The guarantee deposit is charged only once during the year, and 
is payable on or before the date of registration. It will be credited 
on the final statement of the school year, or at withdrawal. 

For a married couple, each enrolled for eight hours or more 
of school work, the regular advance guarantee deposit will be re- 
quired from each. For a combined total fifteen semester hours 
or less, the charge will be the same as for one person. 

Students registering for music only are not required to pay any 
guarantee deposit or general fee. However, a rental will be levied 
for use of piano or organ.

The charge indicated above as "tuition" includes and/or 
replaces all laboratory fees, all music rentals (piafto, organ, instru- 
ments), all charges for musical organizations, graduation expenses 
such as caps and gowns, and diplomas, counseling and guidance 
service, etc. 

Tuition charges are made in four equal installments for each 
semester, monthly, beginning with the statement for October. 

It is assumed to be the earnest purpose of each student to 
secure an education, and since even those working their entire 
way have time for as much as one-half of a full class load, each 
student is urged to carry at least that much school work. Excejpt 
by permission of the President's council, the minimum course 
load a residence hall student may carry is eight hours. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 151 

A full-time student in any one semester is defined as one 
who is registered for a course load of twelve hours for that 
semester. 

The General Fee shall be charged on the first statement 
issued. It shall include charges for lyceum programs, Southern 
Accent, Southern Memories, Student Association fee, library fee, 
physical examination, and matriculation expense. A 50 per cent 
refund on General Fee will be credited to any student withdrawing 
on or before the completion of the first nine weeks. No refund 
will be granted thereafter. 

MUSIC TUITION 

The charge for any private music instruction is $24.00 per 
semester, or $48.00 for the year, for a minimum of 15 lessons per 
semester. This charge is made in eight installments of $6.00 each, 
in the same manner as the regular tuition. In addition to private 
instruction in voice, classes of from two to five students are arranged 
at a cost per student of $18.00 per semester. All students who wish 
to take music must enroll for it at the registrar's office. There are 
no refunds for specified vacation periods or lessons missed because 
of the student's absence. 

Students who enroll late, or who withdraw before the end of 
the semester, are charged at the rate of $1.60 per week up to a 
maximum of $24.00 for one lesson a week. Withdrawal is made 
by means of a drop voucher obtained at the registrar's office. 

BOARD CHARGES 

The cafeteria plan of boarding is used, which allows the student 
the privilege of choosing his food and paying only for what he 
selects. The minimum monthly charge for dormitory students is 
$17.00. This covers a full calendar month. The average costs run 
higher than these figures, totaling around $250.00 per year for 
women and $320.00 for men. 

No allowance is made for absence from the campus except foi 
specified vacations of one week or more, and in cases of emergency. 
Three meals a day are served. Students living in Maude Jones Hall 
or John Talge Hall are expected to take their meals in the dining 
room. 



152 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

MARRIED STUDENTS' HOUSING 
The College provides approximately one-hundred apartments, 
including trailers, for married students. These range in size from 
one room to four rooms — some furnished and some unfurnished. 
Rents range from $15 per month to $40 per month. Prospective 
students are invited to write to the Business Manager for details. 
A reservation fee of $10 is charged. This is refunded on the stu- 
dent's final statement of the school year pending satisfactory clear- 
ance of housing. 

There are fifty or more apartments in the Collegedale commu- 
nity. These also are available to students. Information may be sup- 
plied by the Business Manager upon request. 

RENT IN RESIDENCE HALLS 

A room charge of $16.00 per calendar month is made to each 
student residing in a school home. This charge provides for steam 
heat, lights, and medical service as specified below. On this basis 
two students occupy one room. If three occupy one room, the charge 
is reduced to $14.00 each per month. The rate for rooms with ad- 
joining bath is $18.00 for each student. No refund is made because 
of absence from the campus either for regular vacation periods or 
for other reasons. 

LAUNDRY AND DRY CLEANING SERVICE 

The College operates a modern laundry and dry cleaning plant. 
Students are invited to patronize this service. Charges for service 
rendered will be entered on the student's account to be settled 
monthly. There is no minimum charge. 

MEDICAL SERVICE 

The medical care provided through the room charge includes 
dispensary service and general nursing care not exceeding two weeks. 
An extra charge of ten cents per tray is made each time tray service is 
required. There will be an extra charge for calls by a physician and 
for special nursing. Medical service provided to other than dor- 
mitory residents will be charged according to the service rendered. 

All prospective students should have their eyes tested by a 
competent oculist, and have any necessary dental work cared fo; 
before entering school. 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 153 

TITHE AND CHURCH EXPENSE 
Southern Missionary College encourages the payment of tithe 
and church expense by its student workers. In order to facilitate 
this practice, arrangements may be made for each student to have 
charged to his account ten per cent of his school earnings for tithe, 
and two per cent for church expense. These funds are then trans- 
ferred by the college to the treasurer of the Collegedale S. D. A. 
Church, 

FUND FOR PERSONAL EXPENSES 
Students should be provided with sufficient funds, in addition 
to money for school expenses, to cover cost of books, clothing, and 
all personal items. They may open deposit accounts at the business 
office, subject to withdrawal in person only, and these funds are 
available at any time, as long as there is a credit remaining of what 
the student has deposited. These deposit accounts are entirely sepa- 
rate from the regular students* expense accounts. 

Purchases from the college store or from other departments on 
the campus are made only by cash. At the beginning of each semes- 
ter, a student may purchase from the business office a store voucher 
which may be used at the store for the purchase of books. 

PAYMENT OF ACCOUNTS 
Statements will be issued to students as of the last day of each 
calendar month, covering the month's expenses and credits. This 
billing is subject to discount when paid by the 15th of the following 
month. The gross billing is due on the 25th of the same month. 
Should a student's account be unpaid by the 5th of the succeeding 
month, he is automatically dropped from class attendance until satis- 
factory arrangements are made. 

EXAMPLE OF CREDIT POLICY 

Period covered by statement October 1-31 

Approximate date of billing November 5 

Discount period ends November 15 

Gross amount due November 25

This schedule of payment must be maintained since the budget 



154 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

is based upon the 100 per cent collection of student charges within 
the 30-day period following date of billing. 

Transcripts of credits and diplomas are issued only when stu- 
dents' accounts are paid in full. 

STUDENT LABOR REGULATIONS 

Believing in the inspired words that "systematic labor should 
constitute a part of the education of youth/' 1 Southern Missionary 
College has made provision that every student enrolled may have the 
privilege of organizing his educational program on the "work-study" 
plan. "Jesus the carpenter, and Paul the tent-maker, . . . with the 
toil of the craftsman linked the highest ministry, human and 
divine." 2 The college not only provides a work-study program, but 
strongly recommends it to each student enrolled. 

Inasmuch as the student's labor constitutes a part of his edu- 
cation, participation in the work program is graded, and a report 
thereon is issued to him. This grade is based upon the following: 

Ability to learn Leadership and Initiative 

Quality of work Punctuality 

Quantity of work Integrity 

Safety habits Dependability 

Interest Efficiency 

Cooperation and Compatibility 

A record of vocational experience and efficiency is also kept, by 
semesters, for each student in which is listed the type of work in 
which he has engaged and his degree of efficiency. This information 
will be available to potential employers. 

The college will assign students to departments where work is 
available and cannot shift students from one department to another 
merely upon request. It should be understood that once a student is 
assigned to work in a given department, he will remain there for the 
entire school year except in rare cases where changes are recommend- 
ed by the school nurse, or are made at the discretion of the college. 

Should a student find it necessary to be absent from work, 
he must immediately make arrangements with his work super-

intaident. In cases of illness, he will also inform the health 
service. Any student who desires to terminate his regularly sched- 
uled work program or transfer to another work department may 
be required to give two weeks' advance notice to his work super- 
intendent. Failure to comply with this regulation will constitute 
grounds for suspension from class attendance until he returns to 
work or is excused therefrom. 

COLPORTEUR BONUS 

That students might have adequate work opportunities of a 
profitable nature (both financially and spiritually) during the sum- 
mer months, the College, together with the Southern Publishing 
Association and the several local conferences and Bible houses 
throughout the Southern Union, have banded together to offer a 
bonus to students selling Bibles and denominational books or mag- 
azines. 

Students may make arrangements with one of the several Bible 
houses to sell books or magazines in a designated territory. The 
commission to students, as well as to full-time colporteurs, is 50 
per cent of the total dollar- volume of literature sold. In addition to 
this commission the organizations indicated above will pay to the 
student colporteur a liberal bonus. 

The operation of this plan might well be pictured as follows: 
Total books delivered $1,400.00 

Cost of books delivered 700.00 



Commission earned on sales 700.00 

Colporteur bonus 300.00 

Total funds deposited at S.M.C for 

educational purposes of student colporteur 1,000.00 



It is evident from these illustrative figures that the bonus 
paid is very liberal. It amounts to 43 1/7 per cent of the regular 
commissions ($700) or 30 per cent of the total amount ($1,000) 
deposited to the student's credit at the College by the contributing 
organizations. In actual practice the bonus is computed in this way: 
Divide sum turned over to Bible House by student colpor- 
teur by .70 ($700 divided by .70 equals $1,000) and the 
quotient equals the amount deposited to the student's 



156 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

credit at the College. Subtract from this total the commis- 
sions ($700) which the student remitted to the Bible 
House ($1,000 — $700 equals $300) and you have the 
amount of the bonus. 
There are various other regulations that pertain, such as: 

1. A student must spend a minimum of 350 (300 for 
women) hours in the colporteur work during the summer 
in order to qualify. 

2. The colporteur bonus will be granted only to such stu- 
dent colporteurs as actually use both commissions and 
bonus for educational expenses at S.M.C. 

(Note) These provisions and others are explained in detail in a 
separate pamphlet which is available on request at the College or 
at any of the Bible houses. 

Tuition Scholarship. Each year the college, in conjunction 
with the several local conferences of the Southern Union Conference, 
awards eleven $50 cash scholarships to be applied on tuition: $25 
at the end of the first semester and $25 at the end of the second 
The following schools are eligible to participate in this plan : 

Asheville Agricultural School Madison College Academy 
Collegedale Academy (2) Little Creek Academy 

Forest Lake Academy (2) Pine Forest Academy 

Highland Academy Mt. Pisgah Academy 

The candidates are chosen as follows: The faculty of each designated 
school nominates its candidate; the name, if approved by the school 
board, is recommended to the educational board of the local con- 
ference, for final approval. The selection of nominees is based on 
character, scholarship, personality, and promise of future leadership. 

EDUCATIONAL FUND 

Many young people are deprived of the privilege of attending 
college because of a lack of necessary means. To aid these, an 
earnest effort has been made to obtain donations for the establish- 
ment of an education fund, from which students worthy of help 
may borrow money for a reasonable length of time. Faithfulness in 
refunding these loans will make it possible for the same money to 
assist many students in school. There have been some gifts, and they 
have been used to help several young men and women complete their 



SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 157 

work in this college. But the needs of worthy students have been 
greater than the funds on hand; consequently it has been impossible 
in many instances to render the needed assistance. It has therefore 
been decided to direct the attention of patrons and friends of the 
school to these facts and to invite them to give such means as they 
may desire to devote to this purpose. The college will be glad to 
correspond with any who think favorably of this plan, and will 
continue to use the gifts so that the wishes of the donors may be 
fulfilled and the best results obtained. 

"In each conference a fund should be raised to lend to worthy 
poor students who desire to give themselves to the missionary work; 
and in some cases they should receive donations. When the Battle 
Creek College was first started, there was a fund placed in the 
Review and Herald office for the benefit of those who wished to 
obtain an education, but had not the means. This was used by 
several students until they could get a good start; then from their 
earnings they would replace what they had drawn, so that others 
might be benefited by the fund. The youth should have it plainly 
set before them that they must work their own way as far as possible 
and thus partly defray their expenses. That which costs little will 
be appreciated little. But that which costs a price somewhere near 
its real value will be estimated accordingly." — Testimonies, Vol. VI, 
pages 213, 214. 

Nurses' Scholarship Plan: In response to the heavy demand 
for trained nurses, the Southern Union Conference, the Florida 
Sanitarium and the Southern Missionary College have worked out a 
cooperative scholarship plan for young people who can qualify 
for nursing and who desire to take the year of prenursing at 
Southern Missionary College and then complete their nurses' train- 
ing at the Florida Sanitarium at Orlando. 

Young people who are accepted on this scholarship plan will 
be credited with $75.00 during the first semester and another $75.00 
during the second semester of their prenursing year at Southern 
Missionary College. After admission to the Florida Sanitarium 
School of Nursing the student will be credited with another $75.00. 
For each $75.00 granted the student will sign a promissory note 
for that amount to the institution concerned. Upon successful 
graduation of the student from the Florida Sanitarium and Hospital 
School of Nursing these notes will be destroyed. In case the 



158 SOUTHERN MISSIONARY COLLEGE 

student for any reason discontinues the nurses' training program 
the notes already signed become payable at once. 

This plan is designed to encourage qualified young people, 
whose financial support otherwise would be inadequate, to enter 
this field of preparation and service. Young people interested in 
this plan should address inquiries to the Dean of Southern Mis- 
sionary College. 

For Scholarships in Teacher Education, see pages 63-64. 



FRIENDLY COUNSEL 

Every individual student in SMC is expected to 
meet all bis financial obligations to the college 
(and to the college classes and societies to which 
he belongs) on time and in a responsible manner. 

This requirement is an important element in his 
training for responsible citizenship. 

If an unfortunate set of circumstances makes it 
impossible for a student to meet his financial 
obligations on time and in a satisfactory manner 
he should take up the matter well in advance of 
the due date with the Assistant Business Manager 
who is frequently asked by letter or phone to give 
a financial rating to the individual college stu- 
dent (either while in college or afterwards). 

He is always happy when he can give a student, 
or a former student, a high rating for dependa- 
bility in matters financial. 

To avoid getting in debt every student should 
study his spending habits and try to increase his 
earning capacity by faithful adherence to his work 
schedule and by the successful performance of 
all his work assignments.
