Jesus Christ is the chief corner stone; 

In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto 

An holy temple in the Lord.

For as the body is one, ana nam many memoers, 

and all the members of that one body, being many are one body: 

so also is Christ. 





As a member at Bryan 
—Not a mere number — 
I am one— a being- 
Yet I am many. 

Living fiesh 

And alive 

As together . . . 

. Striving, we stretch for the forth 'rest goal. 

. Laughing, we relish life's fullest pleasures. 

. Grappling, we find new kinships. 

. Learning, we discern our earth-born minds. 

. Working, we trust our holy God. 

Not just me here in my carrel. 

Nor simply you as you go off to the wilderness. 

Returning we unite. 

Then together we reach 

And reaching receive 

More than our slender hearts can hold. 



for the body is not one member, 
but many. 

If the foot shall say. 

Because I am not the hand, I am not of the 

is it therefore not of the body? 

And if the ear shall say. 

Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; 

is it therefore not of the body? 

If the whole body were on eye, where were the hearing? 
If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?

Awana helps. 



Practical Christian Involvement 

One of the many privileges which come from attending a Christian school is the 
opportunity to help in Christian ministries. PCI has a variety of areas in which stu- 
dents can participate. 

Many of the ministries allow us to work with children. One which is helpful for 
those who plan to teach is the Bible classes for the elementary school children. 
This year sixty-five students taught in six of the area schools reaching approxi- 
mately two thousand children. 

A more recent ministry is the Saturday morning AWANA program. Each Saturday 
fifteen boys and forty girls meet with twenty college students in the gym to have a 
time of games, Bible memorizing, and a devotional. 

The Big Brother/Big Sister program was organized to help students become 
friends with the younger people in the community. This year students were urged 
to bring their little friends to campus for special events or just a meal. This is a 
special program to help them grow spiritually. 

PCI doesn't reach only the children, but also the adults. This year many of the 
students are excited about the new nursing home ministry. Students visited Rhea 
County and Graysville nursing homes once a week to bring cheer to people who 
stay there. 





PCI gives freedom to city kids.

Soccor 



With sixteen returning lettermen, nine of v/hich were se- 
niors, we were certain our soccer team was going to go 
far. Very few, however, would hove dared dream how 
for. Excitement mounted when the team won the TISA 
state tournament. Late in the afternoon on November 
15, when Mr. Seero received the telephone coll from 
Mr. Andrews who was in Virginia that the team hod won 
first place in the NCCAA, students flocked to the Lion's 
Den to await the return of the triumphant Lions and to 
welcome them when they arrived home at 1 :30 A.M. 
Special honor goes to the nine seniors for their efforts 
during their years at Bryan: David Beaty, Chuck Grant, 
Biff Quarries, Ken Baker, Mastin Robeson, Paul Shaver, 
John Lacey, Randy Ballard, and Roddy Miller.

Basketball 



The team's verse, 'make my joy complete by being of the 
same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, in- 
tent on one purpose.' (Phil. 2:2), illustrates Coach Dixon's 
Lions this year. 

New strengths within the team have diso been fostered by 
the new organization. Basketball Fellowship. Meeting ev- 
ery Thursday night, the team discusses and endeavors to 
work out problems within the team and of the individual 
members. 

This spirit coupled with an excellent bench strength is in 
evidence in many of the games this season, especially in 
the defeat of Lee, double defeat of Covenant, and the sat- 
isfying victory, for the first time in five years, over Tennes- 
see Temple.

Cross Country 



Last year when the Lions came in fourth place in the NCCAA, we thought 
that they had done a commendable job; but when they came in first this year 
they proved that they were champion quality. 

This year they had a good season with 1 3 wins and 2 losses as well as two 
firsts in invitationals and two championships. 

Potter, Wood, Clarke, Lane, and C. Hatten took first, second, third, fifth, 
and seventh places respectively in the SCAC. 

The highlight of the year came on November 8, 1975, when at Winona 
Lake, Indiana, they became the first Bryan team to take first in the NCCAA. 
The victory came as a surprise since they were competing against such teams 
as Cedarville, Geneva, King's and favored Eastern Mennonite. This was a 
fitting way to end the careers of Chris Hatten and Tom Potter; and a tribute 
to the fine leadership of Jake Matthes who was named both SCAC and 
NCCAA Coach-of-the-Year.

Track 



The track team, although still operating on a club basis, 
brought together a strong group of performers for the 
1 976 season. The season began with several road races 
held in the Chattanooga area and moved on to several 
outstanding meets including indoor and outdoor meets at 
the University of Tennessee and finally the NCCAA meet 
held at Cedarville, Ohio, on May 1 , 1 976. As in the past, 
the distance and field events were strong points for the 
Lion squad.

This year was somewhat of a rebuilding year for the Bryan 
men's tennis team. Standouts Craig Somuelsen and Paul 
Combs were the lone returnees from lost year's team, yet 
a good group of newcomers helped mold the team into a 
contender for the SCAS title. 

A demanding schedule against teams from various colleges 
in Tennessee and Georgia got the netters ready for the 
conference match, which was held on April 30 and May 1 .

Baseball 



After a nearly perfect fall season, the baseball team 
looked forward to an equally successful spring season. A 
great advantage was the twelve returning lettermen, in- 
cluding last year's All-Staters, Anthony Revis and Dennis 
Metzger. A better-than-average pitching staff and greater 
depth on the bench gave them hope for bettering their last 
year's 8-8 SCAC record. Through greater dedication, de- 
sire, and hustle, both on and off the field, the players 
wanted to fulfill their expectations of a record season.

The seventeen members of the Madrigals kept busy first 
semester with a week-end trip to North Carolina in addi- 
tion to their regular concerts in churches and high schools 
around the area. A highlight of the semester was the tap- 
ing of two shows to be broadcast over Channel Three in 
the Chattanooga area. Second semester included a five- 
day trip to churches and schools in Virginia. In addition to 
their regular selections of sixteenth century madrigals, gos- 
pel folk and secular songs, historically important American 
works were added to their repertoire.

Mrs. John Bartlett, Chapel Choir director. 



Since so many people wished to sing, the music depart- 
ment formed the chapel choir, which replaced Choralaires 
and was open to any student who wished to sing. Their fall 
concert in November was sacred Music featuring many of 
Eugene Butler's works. In their spring concert they sang a 
selection portion of / Love America by Don Wyrtzen and 
John Peterson. They also joined the band and several area 
choirs in the performance Sound of America.

Choir 



On October 24, 25, the choir's annual variety show— the funds of 
which are used to help defray traveling expense for the annual spring 
tour— focused on the bicentennial theme using a five-screen slide pan- 
orama as a background for their appearance in historical costume as 
they sang American songs from colonial times to the present. 

This year the choir was asked to assist in Chattanooga's annual Christ- 
mas program on December 5, 6, and 7, with the Chattanooga Boys' 
Choir in the Singing Christmas Tree. 

During spring break the choir traveled to Texas (including a program at 
Dallas Theological Seminary), Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and Mis- 
sissippi presenting a collage of American music including music of the 
Moravians, Black Spirituals, and works by Billings, Ives, and Bernstein.

Band 



The main performances of the band were the 
fall and spring concerts. The fall concert in- 
cluded a baritone solo by Dan Weil and a 
piece, "Naos Anthropos," composed by Mr. 
Boyd. "The Sound of America," a bi- 
centennial arrangement for band and choir, 
was the highlight of the spring concert. Sev- 
eral area choirs joined the college choirs in 
the presentation, with Mr. Hill and Dr. Bartlett 
as narrators. 

The band accompanied the singing in the eve- 
ning meetings of the Christian Life Conference 
including two pieces written by Mr. Boyd— 
one congregational number, "Word Eternal," 
and one solo written for Dr. Bartlett.

Girl's Athletics 



Achievements were many in girls' athletics this season. Under the coach- 
ing of Jeff Tubbs, this year's basketball team, newly clad in red and gold, 
displayed a continued fighting spirit. 

In volleyball the Lionettes had a near perfect record in their first season in 
the Southern Christian Athletic Conference. Louise Burt and Kathy 
McReynolds represented Bryan on the conference's All Star team. 

Another honor was the awarding to Don Hewlitt the title of SCAC Co- 
Coach of the Year. 

The most appreciated and greatest achievement was the growing interest 
and support of the student body.

Will this be the winning bubble? 



Student Union 



Student Union's planning this year has paid off, resulting in 
more activities in which students themselves can participate. 
One of the events was the trip they sponsored to Six Flags 
over Georgia. 

Gory Franklin and his committee set up a concert schedule 
with music to try to please all students. The new schedule in- 
cluded Truth, Pat Terry, Dave Boyer, and Steve and Maria, 
favorites who were well received in former years. A major ac- 
complishment was to have some activity after every home 
basketball game to get the students involved. The Student 
Union's chief goal was to unify the student body through a 
competitive spirit. 




The Alpha-Omega players present a humorous view of American history.

Valentine Banquet 



This year the Valentine's Banquet was right on Valentine's 
Day. Sponsored by Student Union, it was made com- 
plimentary for the married students. Pictures of Bryan couples 
along with red and white tablecloths and carnations helped 
to emphasize the theme of love. Short parodies were done by 
the Student Union members of the love lives of couples from 
Adam and Eve to Gerald and Betty Ford. Each one was in- 
troduced with a short dance by "Fary Granklin" himself. To 
end the evening awards were given to various couples of in- 
dividuals by Gory Criswell and Skip Cline.

The Christmas banquet was an enjoyable way to end a se-

from the beautiful poinsetto bouquets to the music and 
speaker for the evening. The faculty quartet— Dr. and Mrs. J. 
Bartlett, Donald Hill, and Virginia Sequine, accompanied by 
Mrs. Ralph Paisley— song a variety of songs ranging from 
carols to "The Twelve Days After Christmas." Dr. J. Fred 
Johnson ended the banquet with an inspiring talk about the 
glorious person of Christ. For an hour after the banquet, the 
girls had open house for the guys and the visitors.

Intramural Activities 



Jeff Tubbs and his committee of Gary Criswell, Dennis Met- 
zger, and Steve Criswell worked hard to have an exceptional 
program in the intramural activities. For the first time we 
played Lee College in football and won, 19-14. The cele- 
brated North-South game found the South conqueror for the 
second consecutive year winning 32-14. The Junior class 
reigned supreme in flag football beating the Seniors in the 
championship game, 18-12. 

There was active participation in both the singles and the 
doubles pool tournament evidenced by the 48 entrants who 
played in the singles tournament, some of which were girls. 

An abundance of Long Dorm residents took an active port in 
the annual nerf boll tournament held in several different 
rooms. Guys and girls turned out for the yearly singles, dou- 
bles, and mixed-doubles ping-pong tournaments. 

Two teams from each class, two alumni teams, and one fac- 
ulty/married students team also competed intensely for the 
first spot in the basketball intramurals. 

After a good start last year, the girls' intramurals continued 
its efforts for improvements. After alot of preparation, a 
"powder-puff" football gome was played. Teams from Hus- 
ton, Arnold, Cedar Hill/Radar/Maranatha, and Staff/ 
Alumni all participated in a full schedule of girls basketball.

The big thrill for this year's commuters was an ice-covered 
Bryan Hill which kept them from attending the first day of 
second semester classes. To top that, a few days later they 
got stuck in a one-inch snowstorm while in the midst of their 
steep climb toward higher education.

76 Dorm Life 




Your 7th call tonight?! 




Dorm Life 



Life in a dorm is an incomparable experience. It's a conglomer- 
ation of contradictions and complements inside a building. 

In women's dorms, for instance, names were exchanged anony- 
mously on each hall and for one semester girls tried to get to 
know and help secret pals. 

In contrast to this is ihe November morning when the "Radi- 
cals" in Long Dorm shocked classmates and professors appear- 
ing with shaved head aid World War II, after a night of gala 
scalpings.

90 Arrival and Registration 




Arrival of New Students 
and Registration 

During the summer many changes had occurred, the largest 
of which was the beginning of the Rudd Memorial Chapel. 
The campus was once again ready to we'come freshmen, 
transfers, and returnees to another year of friendships, heart- 
aches, and studies. Freshmen had two days in which to adjust 
to dorm life before entering a busy week of testing. 

With the testing come rewards in the form of parties and re- 
ceptions. Long lines became customary as we experienced 
times of waiting. These were interspersed with times of deci- 
sions as we filled out class schedule cards and solved the 
many class conflicts. Through all of these experiences, we 
shared times of meeting new people and starting friendships 
which will last for many years.

Graduation 



After an exciting two-day trip to Calloway Gardens, seniors 
returned for the final ceremonies. Beautiful clear skies wel- 
comed the graduation guests. Mr. Leininger, father of seniors 
Jan and Judy, inspired us with his sermon "The Man with 
Spiritual Insight." Following the example of last year, we had 
two student speakers at the commencement service. Karen 
Underwood and Steve Bradshaw, winners of the McKinney 
Essay Award, read their papers. Seniors dispersed after hav- 
ing shot the usual rolls of color film.

108 Reception and Picnic 




President's Reception and 
All-School Picnic 

At the end of a rough first week of orientation, the freshmen 
and transfers had one more test before they could relax at 
the All-School Picnic. This was the President's Reception. Af- 
ter blind-date couples met in front of Huston, they hurried 
past the upperclassmen who were attempting to douse them 
with cat litter (to replace the forbidden rice). A reception line 
of administrative personnel was the final traumatic experi- 
ence before reaching the refreshment table. When everyone 
had arrived, the Madrigals and some of the professors 
presented a Bi-Centennial program. The freshmen were now 
ready to go bock to the dorms to see how active the up- 
perclassmen had been in their absence. 

The college community was greatly disappointed to awoken 
on Saturday, September 6, to find that the day for the All- 
School Picnic was a grey, drizzly day— mud would make the 
morning gomes impossible. Most of us spent the morning in 
cars or under shelter. It was with great joy that we sow the 
food truck drive up. After another Argo's special picnic, Mr. 
Phillips gave on object lesson comparing a guitar string to a 
Christian. The swinging bridge and hikes to the falls provided 
entertainment for those who were brave enough to stay in 
the rain.

freshmen, some returning students, and others transfers. 
An additional fifteen part-time students picked up courses 
they needed.

Bible Program Expands 

As the school expands, so must the Biblical Divison. This year 
it has become the first Christian college to offer Programmed 
Instruction. Techniques have been enlarged to include video- 
taping of students in Methods of Bible Teaching. The addition 
of Mr. Gary Phillips has helped to relieve part of Dr. Ander- 
son's load. 

With a strong Biblical foundation, Bryan is able to remain the 
conservative evangelical, liberal arts college it has been in 
the past. Using God's Word as the basis for each subject, the 
Bible majors are prepared for either a Christian education 
ministry in a church or further preparation in a seminary.

Literature and Modern Languages 

With the arrival of the largest freshman class, the English De- 
partment was glad to add Mr. Bryan Shelley, a 1 972 gradu- 
ate, to the staff. To give us a better foundation in literature, 
the required course of Introduction to Literature, as v/ell as 
Literary Criticism, was expanded to three hours instead of the 
former two. With our Biblical basis, the teachers' lectures and 
assignments in freshman writing emphasize not only correct 
writing techniques and grammar, but also Christian prin- 
ciples. In honor of the American Bicentennial, the students in 
Literary Criticism have chosen to prepare a research paper on 
Puritanism. 

Speech students used to think that tape-recording their 
speeches was quite nerve-wracking; now, however, the 
speeches have an added terror since some of them ore video- 
taped. At least one speech must be about America or per- 
taining to the Bicentennial. 

Noteworthy events included a caravan of 140 students to 
Knoxville to see Macbeth, a team of speech students to At- 
lanta to enter intercollegiate forensic competition, and the 
Hilltop Players' production of Thornton Wilder's Our Town.

Since Dr. Biller's arrival three years ago, he has rewritten the 
psychology program which now enables the students to study 
both experimental and clinical psychology. Majors in the pro- 
gram learn theory by working in the Dayton Mental Health 
Center, which they helped to organize. 

Teaching courses on a competency-basis, video-taping stu- 
dent teachers, and micro-teaching in some of the under- 
graduate courses were added to the education program this 
year. Dr. Paul Biggers was added this year to relieve the load 
increase resulting from increased enrollment.

Mr. Kent Julliard, Instructor in Art 



In all of their programs this year the choir and Madrigals hon- 
ored America's Bicentennial by singing historical music. The 
music consisted of songs of the American Revolution, music 
by the first American composer, Williams Billings, Black Spiri- 
tuals, songs of the 1920's, and contemporary Gospel folk 
music— all composed by Americans. A few English songs in- 
cluded music rejected by the Puritans or imitated by the 
Southern plantation owners. The most exciting event occurred 
at Christmas time when the choir was invited to participate in 
Chattanooga's annual Singing Christmas Tree. To support the 
Bicentennial theme, the members wore Early American out- 
fits. The B.W.A. and some friends in town assisted by making 
the aprons, bonnets, and shirts. 

The formation of the new Chapel Choir by the addition of 
male voices increased the interest of all concerned. 

History of Fine Arts surveyed American art as a special Bi- 
centennial course offering. 

Students in the Art Department were happy to move into 
their new building where they have room to expand. 

After taking a year's leave to work on his doctorate, Mr. 
Boyd once again directed the Symphonic Band and tutored 
private students. The band's contribution to the Spiritual Life 
Conference and its spring and fall concerts are annually an- 
ticipated by the student body. As a special feature of the Fall 
Concert, Mr. Boyd directed the band in playing his own com- 
position, "Naos Anthropos."

After carrying out the nitty-gritties of registration, students 
united in the annual two-day preparation for the academic 
year ahead. The Campbell-Reese Evangelistic team chal- 
lenged us through songs and messages. The highlight of 
Jim Reese's ministry came when he sang his original com- 
position "Nebuchadnezzar." Ken Campbell brought per- 
tinent messages from the book of Daniel. Rapport between 
students and evangelists was especially good since both 
Ken and Jim were Bryan graduates.

Day of Prayer 



One day each semester the students, faculty, and ad- 
ministration take a break srom their routine to devote 
time for special meetings and prayer. Rev. John Oliver, 
the speaker first semester, brought messages about 
God's love and adequacy and stressed God's role as 
protector, pardoner, provider, and preserver. An extra 
treat was the special music by Chuck and Enid Olson.

Lecture Series 



For our sixth annual Staley Lecture series, the Biblical Divi- 
sion invited Dr. Kenneth Kantzer, dean of Trinity Evangelical 
Divinity School, to speak. Dr. Kantzer is the brother of our 
own Miss Kantzer, professor in the English department. Dr. 
Kantzer spoke on the topic "The inspiration of the Bible." At 
a special banquet given for the Bible and Christian Education 
majors, he challenged them to use their spiritual gifts to build 
the Church. The students appreciated the practical guides he 
gave to help us.

Christian Life Conference 



Before the battles of second semester began, we participated in a two-

sions. Two principle speakers and thirty missionaries from twenty-four mis- 
sion boards shared their views of "Our Changing But Unfinished Task." 
The students discovered different areas of a missionary's life through vari- 
ous symposia topics as well as the displays in the Lion's Den. Rev. Jim 
Montgomery and Rev. Malvin Lubinow presented different aspects of the 
missionary command. Using examples from his experiences in a foreign 
country. Rev. Montgomery gave us a new look at the command to go to 
all nations. Rev. Lubenow presented the biblical outlook of missions.

Senate 



This year the Senate's welcoming duties were increased, and the 
Senate made some dress code modifications on women's pantsuits 
to allow certain pullovers and men's leisure suits to limit to casual 
wear. 

Among the self-improvements of the Senate is its membership in 
the National Association of Evangelical Students. Senate repre- 
sentatives attended, for the first time, the NAES National Con- 
gress in Washington, D.C., during February 23-25.
