OUR PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER
"DR. ROBERT C. McQUILKIN"
THE MESSAGE of the Victorious Life is almost
synonymous with the name of Dr. Robert C.
McQuilkin. But his message would not be complete
if the Great Commission and the Second Coming
were not brought in, too.
Dr. McQuilkin was born February 16, 1886, in
Philadelphia. His stubborn will to fight against all
odds comes from his Irish blood, inherited from his
parents who were born in Ireland. His sweet dis-
position is due to the training that only his four
sisters could have given him, he believes.
Dr. McQuilkin grew up in the church. He held
all the offices in Sunday School and Christian
Endeavor, but his life was not changed till he at-
tended a New Wilmington Missionary Conference.
It was here, at the age of 25, that he realized that
Christ was meeting all his needs. He went back to
live a new life.
On the way to one of these conferences, Dr.
McQuilkin met Marguerite Lambie. He was never
the same again.
While working in the building business. Dr.
McQuilkin felt the call of the Lord into Christian
service. He left the business to prepare for the
mission field. This training was interrupted when
he became associate editor of the Sunday School
Times. In 1918 he started to Africa under the Africa
Inland Mission. After being hindered in departing
several times, he began conference work. Through
this work he came in contact with a group in
Columbia who were praying for a Bible School.
So, in 1922, Dr. McQuilkin came to Columbia and
started the Columbia Bible College.
Dr. McQuillan's fruitful service can be clearly
seen from the imprint which it has left upon
Christianity today. He will long be remembered as
the founder of two Christian Conference Grounds—
Keswick in New Jersey and Ben Lippen near Ashe-
ville, N. C. He was also instrumental in founding
the Foreign Missions Fellowship which has now
united with the Inter- Varsity Christian Fellowship
in its nation-wide college and university works.
The numerous graduates of C. B. C. now in
Christian service are sufficient reward for the
twenty-six years which Dr. McQuilkin has served
as president of Columbia Bible College, and he
looks joyfully forward to many more years in lead-
ing young people "To Know Him and to Make
PICTURES OF THE YEAR • •
In twenty-five years in answer to prayer and without personal
solicitation for a single dollar, the Lord has provided Columbia
Bible College with two campuses and ten buildings. In praise to
Cod for His undertaking in bringing to reality the vision of our
president, Dr. Robert C. McQuilkin, the 1950 Fuiinl presents the
photographs of the year.
This vision of Dr. McQuilkin is not merely that of establishing
a great Bible College. But more than that, it is the vision of the
hundreds of young persons who are being sent forth knowing
Christ and zealous to make Him known to the ends of the earth.
Opening in 1923 in room 209 of the Colonia Hotel with eight
students, Columbia Bible College has been a testimony to hundreds
of prayer helpers who have seen the Lord meet its every need.
By its fourth anniversary, the increased enrollment neces-
sitated the purchase of the entire hotel as the first unit of the Bible
College campus. In 1937 C. B. C. took over the Columbia Seminary
property, one block north of the main building, to use as the men's
campus. As the student body approached the 400 mark, a $210,000
dormitory and classroom building located on the south campus
was completed three years ago.
Now the main building, chapel, new dormitory and classroom
building, Houston and Legters Halls, Mills Building, library, and
government housing units point to the faithfulness of God.
In commenting upon the expansion of Columbia Bible College,
Dr. McQuilkin refers to the testimony of George Muller: "A
visitor to the George Muller orphanages in Bristol, England, was
astonished at what he saw, and exclaimed, 'What a great faith
that man had!' The superintendent answered: 'Mr. Muller would
tell us 'the secret was not his great faith, but his great God. It is
the raft that carries a man across this water. Our faith may be
weak, but if we step on the raft, we get across.'
Many of us covet George Muller's faith. But he would remind
us that we have George Muller's God. We have chosen for the
1950 Bible College vear verse: 'FOR THE LORD IS A GREAT
GOD ... HE IS OUR GOD' (Psalm 95:3, 7). 'This is just a great
point to remember,' writes Muller, 'that this God is our God,—
Jehovah, the Almighty God, is our God.' "
THE COUNCIL STRESSES INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY
UTT IS MY DESIRE that next year we will be able
A to move in the direction of greater student re-
sponsibility," President Howard Blair of the Student
Association stated in his inaugural speech on Friday,
May 6, 1949, when he announced a new experiment in
student life at Columbia Bible College.
The goal was outlined. But that was not enough, and
Blair took the lead in transforming vision into fact. The
first step was to formulate a plan acceptable to both
faculty and students. His foundational thesis that stu-
dent responsibility would lead to better self-discipline
"the traffic lights will still b
red and green"
No longer a figu
enlisted the cooperation of the student association. He
frequently reiterated the need for discipline and
repudiated any desire to make drastic changes in rules
(to change the traffic lights from red and green to purple
and pink as one put it).
Actual work on the establishing of a greater amount
of responsibility began in September with an exchange
of a series of letters between the faculty and the Stu-
dent Council. On September 20th, the faculty gave
assent to the plan for greater student responsibility as
it affected dormitory life. The following week the plan
was taken to the student body where it was voted in
with only eight opposing votes. But the question still
remained: would it work?
The new form of student responsibility acted at times
like an erratic patient. In mid-November, for instance,
it ran a very high fever. The fever subsided, however,
when the President of the student body gave the patient
an injection or two in the form of a statement of
clarification of areas of responsibility. The patient, a
little later, was considerably strengthened by an opera-
tion toward the end of November in which the Student
Council took on the responsibility for making a periodic
check on student life.
For the first time in the memory of the student as-
sociation, the Vice President was not a figure head.
Chosen to head the Student Council Committee on
Student Morale, James Shook, vice president of the
Student Association, played a major role in guiding the
destinies of student government during these early

said only recently, "Don't let

year's leave of absence next
year; I'm going to art school."
Until February 13, 1950, it

the Council in the solution of many problems which
arose at the outset.
Other members of his committee during the first

Enforcement of dormitory rules and discipline were
part of its responsibility. But its hardest task, as its
name implied, was the building of good student morale.

seemed to be on its feet. There were specific achieve-
ments the Council could point to. Improvement was

Council, Phebe Morse, was more than double that of
any previous year. Even the Treasurer, Bruce Shelley,
had additional duties in connection with a separate
student aid fund.
In addition to the Committee on Student Morale,
three other Student Council committees kept up a
flurry of activity. The program committee headed by
Grace Howell was responsible for the eight student
assemblies during the year as well as for the several
banquets. Stanley Hartman, Margaret Orton, and Gwen

cerning rules governing social life were at an all time
low. Yet at the same time the discipline had improved.
During this first year, Mr. James Hatch, faculty ad-
visor to the Council, was most helpful not only in of-
fering suggestions on many things, but especially in
making the Council face the realities of every situation
it dealt with.
But Student dormitory responsibility was not the
only interest of the Student Council. If activity were
the measure of vitality, the Student Council had never
been so much alive. The work of the Secretary of the

Humphreys and Paul Besancon also worked with Grace
on this committee.
Elva Brownlee directed the activities of the Music
Committee. Helping her on everything from arranging
the pianists for the chapel service to organizing and
presenting the Spring Musical were Genevieve Black-
burn, Stanley Barthold, Verta Needham, Mary Ellen
Powers, and Roy Eichner.
Arranging the social calendar for the year and spon-
soring each party and picnic as it came along kept
Alice Jacobsen's Social Committee busy all year. Those
who were associated with Alice at various times during
the year were Nancy Reynolds, Sam Tatem, Ernie
Chun, Harry Smith, and James Standridge.
During 1949-50 there were 19 seats on the Student
Council. Besides the seats occupied by the four execu-
tive officers and the three committee chairmen who
have already been mentioned, there were the heads of
the various school organizations and publications and

The two new officers seated on the council this year,
the presidents of the Men's and Women's dormitories,
were Gwen Humphreys and Marlys Anderson for the
women and Sam Tatem for the men. One reason for
the added prestige of these officers is the vital part
they have played in instituting student responsibility in
the dormitories. Another added responsibility this year
for the Men's Dorm leader is the directing of the Cam-
pus Improvement Program. This program began last
year under the initiative of Eugene Madeira, now the
Editor of the Finial, the school's yearbook. As editor
of this publication this year Madeira has been kept busy
embodying a picture of school life in his new experi-
ment in yearbook journalism.
Jonathan Lucas as Editor of the CeBeCean, the
school newspaper, led his staff in putting out a publica-
tion that portrayed student life. It also has stimulated
student opinion concerning various student enterprises.
The Foreign Mission's Fellowship, the center of the
Bible College spiritual life, was led this year by Ed
Iwan (see photo next page). Under his leadership the
organization not only presented missionary challanges
and information to CBC students but also extended
their deputations throughout South Carolina, to reach
the people with the messages of Missions.
It was a year of work for every one of the officers on
the Council. There were probably as many man hours
devoted to Student Council affairs this year as in all
previous years put together. But it was not work with-

STORY OF THE YEAR
The Burden of Missions Rests Upon YOU
T N SPITE OF THE FACT that the Great Commission
of Jesus Christ was given nineteen and one-half cen-
turies ago, the world is not yet completely evangelized.
Missionary movements in past centuries, started by
small groups of individuals, lacked the universal sup-
port of the Church of Christ. Thus these movements
were limited in their attempt to bring the Good News
to the "uttermost parts of the world."
Missions should be the responsibility of every mem-
ber of the Body of Christ. It is not a program to be
carried on solely by professionals or missionary societies.
It is a program that demands the enrollment of every
believer. Without this universal conscription of support
the missionary effort cannot succeed in its goal. So,
the Foreign Missions Fellowship sponsors a program to
reach the college students of America with this mes-
sage of individual responsibility in carrying out the
FMF's Role In World Missions
Columbia Bible College's FMF chapter conducts a
missionary program of a two-fold nature! First, it seeks
to enlist volunteers to go out as missionaries with the
Gospel message. (Two-thirds of CBC's student body
are FMF members and missionary volunteers.) Under
the leadership of Edward Iwan, President, special
programs with guest speakers, usually missionaries on
furlough, are presented on subjects pertaining to the
call of God to a life of missionary service.
Informative talks on missionary life in general, as
well as opportunities for service and specific needs of
the various fields are also included. These are helpful
in orienting students who are purposing to go or who
are considering the possibility of going as missionary
Jimmy Cail, Vice President of our chapter, directs
the deputations to various churches in this area of the
south. These deputations which our chapter sponsors
present the same challenge of missionary service to
young people of high school and college age. In these
functions FMF is a "student recruiting agency."
The second phase of FMF's program at C.B.C. is that
of prayer. Most of the activity of FMF is centered in
this most-important of all missionary efforts. It is a
prerequisite to any and all work in the Kingdom of God
and a work for which there is no substitute. When the
Great Commission was given by the Lord Jesus to
evangelize the world, He equipped His disciples in a
two-fold manner. Dr. O. Hallesby of the Independent
Theological Seminary in Oslo, Norway, when speaking
of this equipment says, "Objectively He equipped them
WYCLIFFE'S BLACKMAN ADVISES F.M.F.'S IWAN
"Prayer— the heart of missions"
with the Messianic gift itself, The Holy Spirit, through
whom the powers of the supramundane world were
put at their disposal. . . . Subjectively He had equipped
them with prayer, the means by which all of these
objective, supramundane powers are imparted to the
individual believer. . . . Since by prayer we couple the
powers of Heaven to our helplessness, and make the
impossible possible, the work of praying is a prerequisite
to all other work in the Kingdom of God." It is in con-
nection with prayer that every individual member of
the Body of Christ is responsible for the world mis-
sionary effort regardless of qualifications, training, or
position in life. Since intercessory prayer is the most
important work in missionary effort, every believer can
take part in the very heart of the missionary enterprise.
The program of intercession for missions is carried
on in our school by a number of prayer groups, each
one centering their attention on the needs of a particular
field. Anne Kotiadis, FMF secretary, distributes the
reports from various mission boards and individual
workers to the prayer group leaders, who in turn, tell
of the work that is being carried on in that field and
mention the items for which intercessory prayer is
needed. Here is prayer at work. The powers of Heaven
FMF is a nationwide fellowship. The program to
foster an awakening of students to the call of evangeliz-
ing the regions beyond is being carried out on many
campuses all over the country. Whether students are
recruited by the Master to go or to stay, they should all
be recruited to pray faithfully. The future of the Chris-
tian work which is now being carried out does not
depend primarily upon streamlining methods or re-
organization. It depends upon whether the Spirit of
God can persuade believers to take up the all-important
AN EXTENSIVE MEDICAL TRAINING, twelve years of missionary
work in the Philippines, teaching missions in several Christian colleges, and
directing missionary training camps qualified Dr. Paul G. Culley for his
position of Director of the Graduate School of Missions and professor of
missions and hygiene.
Dr. Culley was led to the Lord at an early age by his mother. After
attending the University of Pennsylvania, The Bible Institute of Los Angeles,
and the Winona Summer School of Theology, Dr. Culley received his B.A.
and later his M.A. from Cornell University. In 1925 he received his M.D.
from Johns Hopkins University.
Following a year's medical practice in this country, Dr. Culley went to
Palestine for one year as a staff member of an archaeological expedition.
In spite of all of this traveling and education. Dr. Culley still had not
been able to find the one whom he believed to be God's choice for his life
partner. It wasn't until 1934, after six years of missionary endeavor in the
Philippines, that Dr. Culley married, in Manila, the lady who was later to
become the instructor of hygiene and practical nursing at Columbia Bible
Dr. Culley had a very fruitful ministry in the Philippines from 1928-
1940. Doing medical mission work, teaching at the Manila Evangelistic
Institute, editing a monthly Bible magazine, directing a radio broadcast,
and exploring new fields in the Philippines and New Guinea comprised the
activities of this energetic servant of the Lord.
Since his return to this country in 1940, Dr. Culley's time has been
filled with teaching, preaching and directing missionary training as well as
carrying on a medical practice.

STUDENTS BECOME TEACHERS
SENIORS FINISH TRAINING
SENIOR YEAR introduces a time
when many experience a new thing
in changing from a pupil to a teacher
in the Directed Teaching course. After
taking prerequisite classes in lesson plan-
ning, educational and child psychology,
principles of teaching and classroom
management, the prospective teacher,
with a head full of aims, approaches and
ambitions, enters a class of high school
or elementary school pupils.
A high school class in Bible is his to
teach for a period of seven weeks. In
addition to the all-important Bible les-
sons, he has the full responsibility for
everything in that class— attendance,
grading, learning and discipline.
Supervisor Sarah Petty, assisted by
Miss Edith Sedgley, observes the class
frequently. A private consultation be-
tween the supervisor and teacher is also
held each week. Along with the actual
teaching, each teacher spends thirty
hours in the schools observing regular
teachers in secular subjects and Bible.
"The actual joy of teaching the Word
and seeing His mighty power at work
overshadows the difficulties and trials
of a practice teacher. The Lord teaches
many invaluable lessons through this
method," stated one enthusiastic survivor.
"I love teaching . . . it's my life," de-
clares Miss Sarah Petty, Senior class ad-
visor and director of practice teaching.
Since she came from a family back-
ground of educators it is not surprising
that this one who has such great interest
in people, should be in this profession.
Her patience and insight, in addition to
varied interests ranging from baking to
basketball, make Miss Petty well qualified
to teach and lead young people.
One of her chief joys is "Lena," the
car with personality. Her friends have
learned that to deride "Lena" is to insult
its owner who feels much affection for
her unique '37 Chevrolet. "Lena" accom-
panied the Seniors on their sneak, chug-
ging all the way to Folly Beach and back
with no casualties.
Miss Petty received her B. A. at As-
bury College and later completed work
for her M. A. degree at C. B. C. After-
wards she taught school in Trinity and
Ware Shoals, N. C. With the inaugura-
tion of practice teaching in 1945, Miss
Petty came to C. B. C. to direct this

all in spite of the chagrin of Clarence

ately tried to keep the Junior detectives

and exploring the shore occupied the

ones, armed with nets and baskets, went

Leadership in student government and
Christian service is the privilege and
responsibility of this class. As officers of
the Student Association and other stu-
dent body organizations, many are given
the opportunity to express the results
of their training. Student pastorates and
directorship in many other phases of
Christian testimony afford valuable ex-
periences for these who are about to
assume roles of spiritual leadership.
This year was highlighted by the
completion of the Bible College curri-
culum with Systematic Theology, Christ
in the Old Testament, Problems of
Theology, Progress of Doctrine in the
New Testament and a majority of elec-

lege experience have been built upon
the child-like faith with which these
students began their freshman year. Yet
child-like faith is not enough. Faith that
is based on a personal knowledge of God
is the faith of the mature Christian.
This knowledge has been gained
through a series of circumstances which
has forced the students to rely wholly
upon God. Senior chapel messages served
as an expression of the Senior's spiritual
vitality, although it was not without its
moments of fright and quaking as they
prepared to face their classmates and
Seniors, you are in the Pursuit of
God, but remember, "Complacency is a
deadly foe of all spiritual growth ... I
want deliberately to encourage this
might longing after God. Every age has
its own characteristics. Right now we
are in an age of religious complexity.
The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely
found among us. In its stead are pro-
grams, methods, organizations, and a
world of nervous activities which occupy
time and attention, but can never satisfy
the longing of the heart.
"When religion has said its last word,
there is little that we need other than
God Himself. The evil habit of seeking
'God-and' effectively prevents us from
finding God in full revelation.
"We need not fear that in seeking
God only we may narrow our lives or
restrict the motions of our expanding
hearts. The opposite is true. We can well
afford to make God our All, to concen-
trate, to sacrifice the many for the One."

JUNIORS DISCLOSE SECRET
Tliey tell how they uncovered sneak
FRUSTRATING over a half a year's
careful planning, the Juniors not
only discovered the site of the Seniors'
sneak five days prior to "S Day" Nov.
10. 1949, but they also revealed the des-
tination of this annual outing to many
an ignorant Senior.
After much guessing and speculation,
the dejected Seniors falsely concluded
that a phone call to the bus station the
night before had been the means of dis-
covering this closely guarded secret.
In reality on "S Day," minus five, the
actual location of the sneak was gleaned
from the contents of two over-heard
conversations. One uncovered the site as
being either near Charlotte, N. C, or
else at Folly Beach, S. C. The other re-
peated Folly Beach but gave Poinsetti
State Park as the alternative. Thus this
high priority information was obtained
a full three days prior to the searching
of a certain Senior's desk which contained
This enabled Burt Harding, Harold
Sells, Ed Walker and Tommy Watson to
depart for Folly Beach with previously
prepared signs a full hour before the
Seniors posted an ultimatum containing
their unconditional surrender. A con-
firmation phone call the night before
made it possible for Hubert Addleton,
Cecil Hawkins, Archie Davis, Frank San-
ders, Lee Kirkpatrick, John Knopf and
Pierce Barnes to be aboard the chartered
bus when it arrived at school at 5:15
A.M. on "S Day."
The secrecy employed by the Seniors
in telling only a few of their classmates
of the site boomeranged by enabling the
victorious Juniors to inform many an
unsuspecting Senior of his destination.
This was accomplished by shining their
flashlights on a huge "Folly Beach Spe-
cial—Best Wishes— Juniors" sign plastered
on the side of the bus.
This victory was put in song by Sophie
Graham and given its premier rendition
at the breakfast table the same morning.
Huge Greyhound bus signs and Folly
Beach photographs placed on the Stu-
dent Association bulletin board formed a
vivid exhibit of this great success.

to be known, was not the only accom-
plishment of President Frank Sanders;
Vice-President Ed Harrell; Secretary-
Treasurer Beulah Stapf, and their class-
mates. Assuming the responsibilities and
privileges of upperclassmen, they en-
gaged in several social activities of which
the Junior-Senior Banquet, an Earl-
wood breakfast hike and a progressive
party were the most successful.
Adopting the program of the Apostles,
the Juniors endeavored to put into prac-
tice their year verse:. "But we will give
ourselves continually to prayer, and to
the ministry of the word."— Acts 6:4.

Their Bible study was enriched by the
application of the principles of Biblical
hermeneutics to their classroom work.
Through this training the Juniors are
seeking to obtain a knowledge of the
English Bible, which is too frequently
absent in the modern Christian ministry.
It is not an abstract knowledge of the
principles and techniques involved in
presenting the Scriptures that is lacking.
Neither is acquaintance with historical
and classical scholarship the imperative
which is needed to fill the vacuum exist-
ing in the Church of Christ today. In-
stead the practical exposition of Biblical
truth is the object of the longing which
many have expressed in words similar to
these, "When I go to church I want to
hear what the Bible has to say— not what
some preacher thinks it means."
Yet amid the wonders of God's Word,
we hope that our class is becoming in-
creasingly careful not to lose the sense
of the reality of God's presence which
loss befalls those who do not take time
basic principles of speech
to cultivate the knowledge of Him as a
person. It is for this reason that great
stress is placed upon each student re-
serving time each day for communing
with God in devotional Bible study and
Each student must remember that
"sound Bible exposition is an imperative
must in the church of the living God.
Without it no church can be a New
Testament church in any strict meaning
of that term. But exposition may be car-
ried on in such a way as to leave the
hearers devoid of any true spiritual
nourishment whatever. For it is not mere
words that nourish the soul, but God
Himself; and unless, and until, the hear-
ers find God in personal experience, they
are none the better for having the truth.
The Bible is not an end in itself, but a
means to bring men to an intimate and
satisfying knowledge of God, that they
may enter into Him, that they may de-
light in His Presence, taste and know the
inner sweetness of the very God Himself."
"GOOD MORNING. We welcome you
to listen for a moment to the Little
Chapel of the Air. Come and meditate
with us. . ." And from 7:55 to 8:00 A.M.
each weekday hundreds of South Car-
olinians hear the voice of announcer F.
Brooks Sanders over radio station VVCOS
Mr. Sanders began his radio training at
Wheaton College where he majored in
speech and brightened many a program
with his trombone solos. After receiving
his B.A. in 1947, he attended Eastern
Baptist Seminary and New Brunswick
Theology Seminary. He also served as
music director of the Madison Street
Bible Church in Oak Park, 111., and the
Philadelphia Youth for Christ during that
period. After serving as pastor of the Old
Bridge Baptist Church in Old Bridge, N.
J., Mr. Sanders went to Costa Rica un-
der the Latin American Mission to be-
come both the program and musical di-
rector of radio station TIFC.
The Sanders were forced to return to
the United States on account of Mrs.
Sanders' health. In 1949 Mr. Sanders
came to teach public speaking at C.B.C.
He is also assisting in the music depart-
ment and radio production course in ad-
dition to heading up student deputations.
In his spare time Mr. Sanders pastors a
church in Augusta, Ga., and encourages
the basketball team every Friday night.
Concerning his present position Mr.
Sanders states, "I think speech is of ut-
most importance to a Christian worker.
Whatever is worth saying for the Lord
is worth saying well. Our objective is to
produce a sense of coordination between
all speech mechanisms so as to permit
greater freedom in speaking."

All the girls who have come to C.B.C.
have found Mrs. William Walker to be a
true mother with a gracious and sympa-
thetic interest in each girl. She has never
been too busy to listen to even the small-
est problems and give practical advice.
At the age of sixteen Mrs. Walker had
a vital experience with the Lord. From
that day on her heart has been in mis-
She married a minister who was pastor
of the First Baptist Church in Rome, Ga.
After they were married, they applied
for missionary work in Japan, but they
were hindered from going. Hence mis-
sions lay always at the heart of Mr. Wal-
Mrs. Walker has three daughters and
one son. Bill is at Yale studying the Jap-
anese language in preparation for serv-
ice on that mission field. Catherine is a
missionary in China now. Elizabeth is
married to Kenneth Strachan, who is co-
director of the Latin American Mission.
Her eldest daughter is married to one of
the staff members at Wheaton College.
After her husband's death, Mrs. Wal-
ker taught Bible for eight years in Char-
lotte, N.C, before coming to C.B.C. While
filling the position of Dean of Women
for the past sixteen years, she has said
that her goal is to treat the girls as she
would like to have her own girls treated.
"FOR THE FIRST TIME in my life I
realized that there was some other goal in
life besides marriage," stated Associate
Dean of Women, Miss Katharine Cum-
ming, concerning the time when she first
heard the gospel as a young woman.
Since her only knowledge of God up
to this time was gained from a few na-
ture studies in Sunday School as a child,
the first twenty years of Miss Cumming's
life were spent in total ignorance of a
personal God. True, she had heard of
Christianity along with the other reli-
gions. They all were included in the in-
tellectual training engineered by her fa-
ther. But to believe that a simple, un-
educated Jewish carpenter could sud-
denly appear and claim to be the Son of
God was too fantastic to be accepted by
intelligent people. Thus, the theories of
evolution and atheism were substituted
for Christianity and became her philoso-
phy of life.
It was after her graduation from finish-
ing school in Raleigh, N.C, and her de-
but in Augusta, Ga., that Miss Cumming
began teaching contract bridge to
wealthy visitors in Augusta. These luxu-
rious and social winters, interspersed with
her trips to Europe, made up the early
years of her life. But underneath the sur-
face exhilaration, her heart was constantly
seeking— seeking for the real answer to
life and its problems.
Her first contact with cultured people
who also claimed to know a personal God
was at a conference on the Hudson River.
The testimonies of answered prayer and
the living power of God were things she
could not overlook. For the first time in
her life, Miss Cumming prayed. Soon
afterward, she was led to a personal
knowledge of Christ through a Bible Col-
FROM A RUN-AWAY BOY to a history
teacher and dean of men is Mr. John
Ker Munro's story. His keen memory for
incidents from ancient history is illus-
trated by his present vivid recollection of
running away from home at the age of
two. A bridge was being built over the
Saskatchewan River. An inquisitive child,
he went to investigate. He stayed on into
the night oblivious of the fact that the
police were searching for him.
It was not until the age of sixteen that
this explorer again ventured forth into
parts unknown. This time it was a 2,000
mile trek across western Canada. After
having worked to meet all expenses, he
joyously returned with $100 in his pocket.
Four years later, he went with his mother
on an extensive tour of Europe and Pales-
Mr. Munro received his B.A. from
Wheaton College and his Th.M. from Dal-
las Theological Seminary. His public
schooling and Bible college training were
received in Canada, where he was born
and brought up.
His own four sons and his 187 adopted
ones, as well as teaching history and pas-
toring a church, keep him fairly busy
now. But it is said he also has time to
devour the contents of twenty-five pe-
riodicals each month.
Those of us who are studying history
under Mr. Munro see evidences that he
has not lost his keen memory or love of
SOPHOMORES ARE CREDITED WITH WINNING GRITS BOWL
They are all outstanding; some in football, basketball, others in music.
IN POINTING to the Senior-Sopho-
more's 6 to conquest of the Junior-
Freshman football team, the Sophomores
can rightly stake their claim of leadership
in Bible College sports. Sophomores
Larry Brown, Tommy Watson, and Bruce
Shelley— were the outstanding players in
this traditional Thanksgiving Day Grits
Bowl Game. This supremacy is further
substantiated by the appearance of three
Sophomores— Joel Ortendahl, Bruce Shel-
ley, and Tommy Watson— on the first
quintet of C.B.C.'s champion basketball
As is the case with the other classes,
the Sophomores readily state that the ma-
jor characteristics of their group are the
Christian fellowship and unity of spirit
which have been especially evidenced in
their weekly prayer meetings and class
socials. This is reflected in their choice of
a year verse: I Corinthians 15:58 "There-
fore my beloved brethren, be ye stead-
fast, unmoveable, always abounding in
the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye
know that your labor is not in vain in the
Led by President David Renaker; Vice-
President, Perry Priest; Secretary, Vir-
ginia Penn; and Treasurer, Winford
Headrick, this class enjoyed what is prob-
ably the most interesting part of the four-
year Bible College curriculum. For it is
in the second year that courses under
Dr. Robert C. McQuillan, Mr. James M.
Hatch, and Dr. J. Walter Carpenter are
This is the fateful hour in which the
courageous individuals trembling, tiptoe
into "baby" Greek. At this point Dr. Mc-
Quilkin is transformed in the mind of
the student from a beloved president
who abounds with inspirational and
challenging chapel messages to a scholar
who possesses a deep knowledge of the
books of John and Romans and Daniel
and Revelation. Here the study of psy-
chology introduces one to the remarkable
teaching ability and keen insight into
the problems of learning which one al-
most immediately associates with the
mention of Mr. Hatch's name.
The editors of the 1950 Finial would
remind the Sophomores that, "Our gifts
and talents should also be turned over to
Him. They should be recognized for
what they are, God's loan to us and
should never be considered in any sense
our own. We have no more right to claim
credit for special abilities than for blue
eyes or strong muscles. 'For who maketh
thee to differ from another? and what
hast thou that thou didst not receive?'
ABOUT OUR ADVISOR
GOING DIRECTLY FROM SPANISH CLASS to
French class without getting her languages mixed up,
Miss Kathryn E. McClarty has amazed students for
three years now since joining the faculty in 1947.
Perhaps the most remarkable characteristic of this
well known faculty member is her dry, and often too
subtle to detect, sense of humor. One is just as likely
to come across it on a final French exam as in a casual
conversation in the lobby.
After receiving her B.A. at Elmira College in Elmira,
N. Y., and her M.A. at Middlebury College in Vermont,
Miss McClarty did advanced work at McGill Uni-
versity in Montreal, Grenoble in France, Sorbonne in
France, and Syracuse University in New York.
At the age of seven, Miss McClarty went to an
evangelistic service with her mother. Following a
message concerning Christians standing for Christ,
she declared her faith in Christ by going forward. She
is not certain of the date since she was brought up
in a Christian home and never remembers having any
doubt that Jesus is God.
A very prominent place in Miss McClarty 's out-of-
the-classroom conversation is occupied by her only
sister's two daughters. Like all aunts, she gets great
joy and satisfaction out of convincing you that they
are the two most unusual nieces any aunt ever had.
"Eating period is one of my favorite pastimes with
chicken and lamb heading the list of favorite foods,"
Left to right— President Renaker, Secretary Perm,
Treasurer Headrick, and Vice-President Priest
states Miss McClarty. Her pet peeve is people who
always put things off until the last minute. "This
includes cramming for exams too." During the summer
much of her time is spent on her favorite hobby-
entertaining her two nieces. Other hobbies include
knitting, playing the piano, and photography.
(See photo on Page 37)
As freshmen, their unity of fellowship was evidenced in social activities as well as in prayer meetings

MANY ARE ENROLLED IN THE PURSUIT OF GOD
FRESHMEN FIT INTO CBC'S TRAINING PROGRAM
Orientation aids adjustment
ii^Y/nTmN THE FOLD of conservative Christianity
▼» there are to be found increasing numbers of per-
sons whose religious lives are marked by a growing hunger
after God Himself. They are eager for spiritual realities and
will not be put off with words, nor will they be content
with correct 'interpretations' of truth. They are athirst for
God, and they will not be satisfied till they have drunk
deep at the Fountain of Living Water."
Tozer well expresses why we freshmen enrolled in C.B.C.
Here we are able to study courses that are not only planned
to provide the basic knowledge essential to setting forth
the doctrines of Christ, but our whole life and activity is
armed to stimulate the devotional life by which the pres-
ence of God is manifested.
But the abrupt change from a secular state high school
to a school that is distinctly a Bible College, the abrupt
change from home life to dormitory life, causes many
problems which are only relieved by the certainty that the
Lord had led us here to receive training for effective
Stressing the practical result of entering into victory
over sin and the Spirit-filled life, Philosophy III (Christian
Ethics) provides us with a knowledge of the means to
this end. Gaining some maturity through this course, we
find that we have already become adjusted to student life.
The first semester was our opportunity to become regu-
lated to the Bible College concept of responsibility. Our
representative was Bobert Baker. He served in a non-
voting capacity on the Student Council.
By the time the middle of the year came, all of us were
well acclimated, and we were officially classified. Classi-
fication brought with it recognition. This meant that we
could choose our own officers and advisor. The officers we
elected to guide our activities of our now self-governing
class were President, Burwell Frazier; Vice-president,
Leonard Allred; Secretary, Virginia Poley; and Treasurer,
Eugenia Gasperson. Our class advisor, Mr. William Supplee,
(see page 62 FINIAL congratulates) was also new, for he
joined the faculty the same time we arrived at school.
Left to right— President Frazier. Secretary Poley,
Vice-President Allred, and Treasurer Gasperson.
(BIENTATION WEEK is thoroughly effective from
beginning to end. It gives us students time to
adjust ourselves without being rushed with studies."
"... a fine thing for us Freshmen who need to know
what daily living of the Christian life is."
These quotations illustrate the favorable reaction ex-
pressed by many Freshmen concerning their opening orien-
tation week. Preliminary tests, lectures on various phases
and problems of Bible College life, spiritual life meet-
ings, recreation, and opportunities for consultation with
the deans and other faculty members comprised this pro-
gram which helped the incoming students adjust them-
selves to Bible College life.
Many lasting friendships were begun during this open-
ing week and also on the traditional "Hey Day." On this
day each student is never to use the foreign expression "Hi"
in greeting anyone. Instead, he is to say "Hey" in a South-
ern manner to everyone he meets. A prize is given to the
one who has learned the most names and important facts
about people whom he has met.

t FIFTH'S STYRON
REGISTRAR KATHRYN WARREN
always on the lookout
WHAT WOULD YOU DO if you were in this predicament?
You have just twenty minutes in which you must prepare for
a message that you have been called upon to give at the T. B.
sanitorium. But you feel led to pray for an unsaved school-chum.
Would you pray or would you work on your message?
The girl of this story prayed. And her school-chum, known
to us as Miss Kathryn Warren, was saved. Miss Warren at this
time was in her junior year at college and on this particular
evening was attending a vesper service at the Y. W. C. A. The
Holy Spirit spoke to her heart through Psalm 24:3,4: "Who
shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in
his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart;
who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanitv nor sworn deceit-
After a childhood spent in Alba, Pa., Miss Warren's two
brothers went into business, and she followed the profession of
her father by becoming a schoolteacher. After graduation from
Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa., she taught five years in
Pa. and seven years in N. Y. Miss Warren's favorites among her
students were always the bad boys. Along with teaching eight
high school subjects, she held Bible clubs and coached the girls'
One of the most unusual things about Miss Warren is her
love of languages. In college, she majored in both French and
Latin and also studied Spanish. At C. B. C. she not only took
Greek but also Hebrew. As if this weren't sufficient, she en-
rolled in a course in Anglo-Saxon at the University of South
As you see Miss Warren stepping lively through the halls,
you would not guess that one of her special enjoyments, besides
studying languages, is observing people.
SCHOLARLY MR. BROOMALL
gives a winsome smile
"NOW TAKE MY GOATS for instance. . . ." These famous
words have long been the signal for much humor in the classes
of Professor Wick Broomall.
Mr. Broomall, professor of theology and history, is known as
the walking library. There are but few class periods when he
fails to pull some old manuscript out of his brief case and be-
gin to read some underscored passage to his students.
Born in Birmingham, Ala., Mr. Broomall is a real Southerner.
His family (three sisters and one brother) were always closely
united, resembling as he states it "a clan." Now that neither
of the parents is living, two of the sisters keep up the old
homestead in Birmingham.
Saved at the age of twelve, Wick Broomall joined the Vine
Street Presbyterian Church and has continued in that denomina-
tion ever since. For four years he pastored a church in his
Mr. Broomall spent his early college years at Maryville Col-
lege in Tennessee. Later he graduated from Princeton Uni-
versity and then Princeton Theological Seminary. While at
Princeton young Wick Broomall won a prize from the Ameri-
can Tract Society for his paper on the Holy Spirit.
Finishing his education, Mr. Broomall taught first in the
Evangelical Theological College at Dallas, Texas, and later at
the Birmingham School of the Bible. He has been on the faculty
of Columbia Bible College since 1937.
Mr. Broomall's chief hobbies are raising goats, gardening, and
observing people. He often stands aside to watch people and
note their facial reactions to varying situations.
The Broomall's have one son whom they named John Owen
in honor of the great English preacher of the 17th century.
POSSIBLE SUICIDE PREVENTED
Dramatic restoration highlights many Christian Service activities
By Arlie May Crowl, Associate Ed
Roy Jensen holds interest of
Industrial School hoys
A TREMBLING HAND ran down the page of Columbia's
telephone directory early one November morning, and
paused gladly at the words, "New Life Center." In his present
condition these words to Bill Hamlin* spelled "deliverance"
more accurately than anything else at hand. A Bible College
student at the mission hurried to Bill's side after receiving the
call, and heard this story: Bill was on the verge of ending his
own life before he called the mission. That morning, after a
night of revelling, he had awakened with a nasty gash in his
forehead. His '49 Plymouth, his watch, and his money had been
taken from him while he was in a drunken stupor.
The Bible College student spent the entire day with Bill,
praying and poring over God's Word with him. He learned that
Bill had been saved from a drunkard's life in a previous experi-
ence, but had since fallen along the wayside. Gradually he had
lost his Christian testimony and with it both the motive and
desire to live. He had come to the end of himself that day when
he woke up wounded and robbed, and obeyed the voice of the
Holy Spirit to his heart by calling the mission.
Before the day was over, the joy and assurance of Bill's
salvation were restored through the testimony of the Bible Col-
lege student. He left Columbia within a few days a new man
with a new hatred for sin and a new desire to serve God.
This is just one of the many thrilling experiences C.B.C. stu-
dents have weekly on their city-wide Christian Service Assign-
ments. The Bible College is located in an ideal place for witness.
Doors are open for opportunities to teach the Word in the
Women's Penitentiary, the Girls' Industrial School, the Colored
Boys' Industrial School, and in the public schools. Numerous
hospitals are open for visitation. Within a few miles of the city
is Fort Jackson which has a constant influx of young men who
need the Gospel. Opportunities to teach and preach in Co-
lumbia's many churches challenge the Bible College young
OPPORTUNITIES AT STATE FAIR
The annual State Fair held in Columbia each fall finds the
Christian Service Department busy arranging an attractive Bible
College booth and preparing teams of personal workers to alter-
nate morning, noon, and night covering the fair grounds. Groups
of students systematically canvass the entire grounds, distribut-
ing tracts and witnessing to the crowds of people who come
from every walk of life to this big event.
Many thrilling stories have come out of C.B.C.'s experience
at State Fairs through the years. This year students came back
with striking testimonies of the Lord's working through their
individual witness. Many who had never before led a soul to the
Lord saw the Lord take their words and use them to the sal-
vation of someone.
For ten years the Christian Service Department had tried to
get an opening to hold a class for colored nurses in a local hos-
pital, and this desire was answered unexpectedly when one of
these nurses accepted the Lord at the State Fair and made it
possible for the Bible College to come into that hospital. One
girl saw 19 people decide to follow their Lord in one afternoon.
Thousands of tracts were distributed prayerfully throughout
the week and hundreds were spoken to about their relationship
to God. In addition to the personal work done on the fair
grounds, a group of students kept a program going continually
in the Bible College booth, giving forth the good news of sal-
vation in movies, testimonies, object lessons, and special music.

WORK AMONG THE SERVICEMEN
Impelled by the moral and spiritual degradation prevailing in
America's peacetime army, several C.B.C. students working
through the Servicemen for Christ organization have put forth
a vigorous evangelistic appeal to the men at Fort Jackson. Each
Sunday night scores of soldiers aimlessly walk the streets of
Columbia seeking some form of thrill or diversion from the rou-
tine of army life to which they are subjected at this large fort
which is located only five miles from the city. Many fine young
men have been lured into shame and wickedness through the
temptations which are readily found in cities.
Because of Servicemen for Christ, many of these soldiers are
greeted with, "Say, Soldier, come on over to a swell Service-
men's rally we're having tonight. A lot of us fellows who were
in the service know what it is to be in a town where you don't
know anybody and have nothing to do, so we put on these infor-
mal meetings every Sunday night in the Bible College audi-
torium. They're held especially for the students and fellows from
Fort Jackson. Just hop in my car here and come along. There'll
be a good song service, testimonies, and then some of the girls
will sing before one of the ex-G.I.'s brings a message. What's
more, we'll give you a free bus ride back to the Fort after the
meeting is over."
Over twenty-five servicemen come to these services every
week. Recently in one service fourteen out of the thirty fellows
in attendance stepped out for Christ when Assistant-Director
Emil Wittig gave the invitation. Two fellows from Fort Jackson
who accepted Christ at the Bible College are now conducting
regular Bible Classes for their fellow soldiers in Japan. Bob Sax-
ton, Sunday night director, emphasized the fact that the results
experienced are due directly to the prayer support of the stu-
Servicemen for Christ was begun simultaneously by a soldier
from Fort Jackson who held meetings at C.B.C, and by a group
of soldiers in France during the war. One of these fellows, Bob
Brosius, later came to the Bible College and learned of the simi-
lar work which had begun here under the same name. Deciding
to work together, the two groups united under the directorship
of Bob Brosius.
With headquarters in Chicago and branch offices throughout
the United States, Servicemen for Christ with the cooperation of
the Chaplains* Department has now spread to every section of the
countr\'. The departure of one team for Japan this fall will be
the beginning work among soldiers, sailors, and marines in both
the Pacific and European theaters of operation.
The Army attributes a two percent rise in chapel attendance
to Servicemen for Christ. This and the testimonies of redeemed
men, the praise of numerous chaplains— all indicate the effective-
ness of the work of Servicemen for Christ.
BUSINESSMEN'S BIBLE CLASS
From 10:00 to 10:30 every Sunday morning Dr. McQuilkin's
Bible studies are broadcast over radio station WKIX as a part
of Businessmen's Bible Class. Students canvass Main Street, in-
viting servicemen to attend the class, which is held at the Hotel
Jefferson, and many have been converted.
WEEKLY STREET MEETINGS
Street meetings with as many as seventy in attendance are
held every Saturday night at eight on the corner of Hampton
and Main. All of the men students who want to participate meet
for a time of earnest prayer beforehand. They go out with a bur-
den for souls and a determination to win men to Christ. Director
Joel Ortendahl and the many who take part in speaking, testify-
ing, and playing musical instruments have had the joy of seeing
scores of lives transformed through their acceptance of the sal-
vation message presented there.

(shown below) at the Veterans' Hospital
VETERANS" HOSPITAL WORK
A fruitful ministry is carried on weekly at the Veterans' Hos-
pital located outside the city. Sunday morning finds a busload of
singing C.B.C.'ers headed for the hospital prepared to give tes-
timonies, to sing special music, and to do personal work in the
wards. The students find the thankful hearts and sincere praise
of the many sick veterans ample reward for their service. On
Tuesday afternoons another talented group puts on a "Victory
Hour" "wardcast" over the public address system from the hospi-
tal auditorium. A mid-week prayer and praise service is led by
still another team on Wednesday evening.
Out-of-town deputations are a vital part of the Christian
Service outreach. These deputations, planned and directed by
Mr. Brooks Sanders, include several Gospel services and parties
at which C.B.C. students get acquainted with the members of
the particular church to which they are ministering. In the homes
where the students are given overnight accommodations, there
are additional opportunities for a Christian witness. Happy
memories of these week-end trips are preserved by all the stu-
dents who participate. This year groups were sent to Asheville,
Charlotte, Wilmington, North Carolina; Augusta, Georgia; and
numerous cities in South Carolina.
Most of the women students have Bible Club assignments with
children. Usually the weekly Bible classes are taught in private
homes in Columbia and the surrounding areas. Valuable practical
experience in teaching and dealing with small children, both
colored and white, is gained.
The Bible College library has equipped itself with every imag-
inable aid for the girls in their teaching. For recreation they
may check out suitable equipment. Numerous flannelgraph

About Men's Director Petty . . .
"DON'T SUBSTITUTE tact for contact" is a part of Mr.
Tom Petty's advice to C.B.C. students in relation to their
Christian Service, of which he is the director. Mr. Petty's
pet peeves fit him well for his job. "Much activity without
objective, and the performance of Christian Service in the
energy of the flesh are my chief dislikes," states this ex-
perienced personal worker.
For five years before coming here as Christian Service
Director. Mr. Petty was the pastor of Palmetto Community
Church. During the last year of his pastorate, he took on an
additional responsibility as chaplain of the Girls' Industrial
School. At one time he headed a Gospel mission in Lorain,
Ohio. He was also the headmaster of the Edwards' Memorial
Boys' school at Salemburg, N. C.
A native of Greensboro. N. C.. Mr. Petty traces his
conversion back to his fifth year when his mother led him
into a personal experience of salvation.
MEN'S STAFF IN CONFERENCE
Bowman, Petty and Braswell laugh during conference interlude
His childhood ambition was to teach farming in South
America. This interest in farming has stuck with him until
now. He anticipates taking up the hobby of organic farming
at his rural home.
At Asbury College, Mr. Petty received his B.A. degree,
and his M.A. was secured at Columbia Bible College. He
also attended the University of North Carolina and Cleve-
land Bible College in Cleveland, Ohio.
MISS STRAUSS, WOMEN'S DIRECTOR . . .
IN A JEWISH HOME in Chicago, where the children were
taught to hate Christ and all Christians, C.B.C.'s Women's
Christian Service Director, Miss Dorothy Strauss, was born.
Throughout high school Miss Strauss was bitter against
all those who even mentioned the name of Christ. After
graduation she started working in an office where there were
two Christian girls. They asked her to go to the Chicago
Business Women's Council. Again and again she made
excuses but finally could think of no more; so she went.
For the first time she heard the Gospel. After this she began
to go to a weekly Bible class and then to read the New
Testament. Her two Christian co-workers took Miss Strauss,
practically by force, to see the Bible class teacher, Miss
Lucy Peet. She warned her in their second interview that
if Miss Strauss decided to accept Christ she might be put
out of her home. Then she asked Miss Strauss, "Is Christ
Miss Strauss made the decision and was put out of her
home, but she found Christ worth it and ten years later her
father, too, accepted Jesus as his Messiah and Lord.
Since her conversion the Lord has led Miss Strauss into
Mountain Mission, Children's Bible Mission, Bible teaching
in the school, and camp work. In 1942 she became a member
of the C.B.C. family, and since then has been reaching
out into Columbia through the Christian Service Depart-

A GUST OF WIND— you turn around to see what just
went by. It's just Mr. Sells, head bent low, trying to get to
his class on time.
This Bible teacher did not come to C.B.C. first as a
teacher, but as a young man he left the Tennessee hills to
come as a student to the Bible College. After graduating,
he attended King's College and Dallas Seminary. His
education was furthered when he went with his father to
Palestine in 1935.
and her staff decide it
Busy Mr. Sells p;
Since 1936 he has been teaching at C.B.C. He doesn't
devote his entire time to the Bible College geniuses, how-
ever, but does much Gospel work in the public schools.
His love for the Negroes and his work among them claims
much of his time. He teaches Bible courses at colored
colleges in Sumter, S. C, and Orangeburg, S. C.
Mr. Sells is not the only famous member in his family.
His father was a congressman to Washington from the
First Congressional District of Tennessee in 1910-1920. One
of his two sisters is Mrs. Walter Carpenter, Jr.
During the first semester Mr. Sells taught a weekly
Bible class on Tuesday evenings in the Bible College
auditorium. His course, which included practically every
phase of prayer— its doctrine, style, mistakes about it—,
attracted crowds of local people every week. Mr. Sells also
takes part in teaching each Thursday night at the Savannah
Evening School of the Bible.

GRAD ADVISOR, DR. CARPENTER
FOR FOREIGN SERVICE
Desire to know Bible and Missionary Methods
"BUT THE GRADS!" Ten years from now those all too
familiar words from the Thanksgiving Day skit will still be
ringing in the ears of the graduate class of 1950 as we trek
through the jungles of Africa, climb the towering Andes,
or look into the mucky waters of the Ganges. Eating fried
ants with the Bantu tribes may give us a longing for a fudge
party, making snail soup with the Mazatecos may make
us wish for a hot dog, and climbing the Himalayas may
make our muscles hurt like those volley-ball games did.
time' Prepositions take
But, wherever we are, we will praise the Lord for the
joyous days of preparation at C.B.C. and for the privilege
of serving Christ in the hard places of His harvest field.
The Graduate School of Missions of Columbia Bible
College offers prospective missionaries training on the

Outstanding visiting professors present series of lectures on
special missionary subjects, Bible books or theological
topics each year. Christian service assignments each week

During the summer some of the Grads will be found at
the missionary training camp near Asheville, N. C. Coming
unexpectedly into camp we might find a couple of girls
building a little log cabin. Others are clearing a place for a
garden, and one of the young men is in charge at the
kitchen stove. Beginning to grind the corn early in the
morning, he has found bread baking an all day job.
During the day there are classes in problems of health,
missions, dietetics and cookery and Bible. Evangelism and
teaching are practiced in the neglected mountain settle-
ments near by. Sleeping on the ground, fixing on a very
limited budget, and making the best of every circumstance
are other parts of the preparation for the life of a pioneer
The Catawba Indian Reservation, six miles from Rock
Hill, S. G, with only a Mormon Church, has presented the
Graduates a strong missionary challenge. They began
working there in the fall of 1948 by making the 140 mile
trips in order to hold a Bible class in their school. Saturday
gatherings, home visitation, and Christmas program put on
by Mizpah Roberts, Dorothy Kebler, Esther Lindeman, and
Caleb Cutherell have provided additional opportunities to
present the Gospel. Mizpah and Dorothy bore the brunt of
the responsibility during the first semester while Mildred
Walkwitz and June Marcus carried on the work throughout
the second semester.

A. Harrison, Ann Blackman, Dorothy Kebler, and Sunny Beth Soney
Although no definite individual response can be pointed
to, the Grads are trusting God to give the increase. During
a visit with old Chief Blue, he announced, "We are Mormons
and we expect to stay Mormons." One boy of twelve stood
up before one of the several Mormon missionaries to defend
his newly acquired book, the Gospel of John. "I have read
it and I don't find anything wrong in it," he said. Another
child was trying to pray "like Miss Dorothy did."
President Bill Keiter; Vice-President Lee Adelman; Sec-
retary-Treasurer Millie Larson; and their Grad class feel
more qualified as they go forward another year towards
the place that the Lord has willed for them to serve Him.
ABOUT OUR VERSATILE ADVISOR, DR. CARPENTER
IN THE OPINION of his students, the greatest qualification
which Dr. Walter J. Carpenter Jr. possesses for imparting
a knowledge of the Greek New Testament is his keen
sense of humor. Many a class period spent in discussing
such interesting subjects as the genitive absolute or accusa-
tive of general nuisance is highly enlivened by the wise-
cracks, funny faces, and jokes which ensue from this
professor who is supremely human.
Sixteen years of studying New Testament Greek culmi-
nated in Dr. Carpenter's receiving his Ph.D. degree in New
Testament Greek from Southern Baptist Seminary in Louis-
ville, Ky. Special instruction under Dr. W. H. Davis enabled
Dr. Carpenter to realize the value of obtaining the literal
meaning of the Greek New Testament.
This emphasis on getting the literal meaning of the text
has enabled many C.B.C. alumni to excel in further Greek
studies in other institutions. One alumnus stated that he
wanted to come back to Greek class for another week and
get another year's sermon material.
"I was born in Uniontown. Pa., because I wasn't born in
Hawaii," states Dr. Carpenter in referring to his birth. The
explanation-his father had accepted a pastorate in Hono-
lulu, but the mail delivery was so slow that the church had
ahead)' called another minister before his acceptance ar-
If any student is contemplating the study of Greek, he
may be assured that he will enjoy the professor even if he
dislikes the subject— which isn't probable.

WOMEN EXHIBIT KNOWLEDGE OF DOMESTIC ISSUES
Upset Men in Strategic Debate
TO THE SURPRISE and humiliation of the Men's
Forensic Society, two members of Women's
Literary Society staged a brilliant upset in a debate
on Truman's National Health Insurance program No-
vember 17, at the first joint meeting of the two socie-
ties. Representing the Women's Literary Society for
the negative were Marian Willets and Martha Ni-
zamian. Howard Blair and Jonathan Lucas spoke for
the men on the affirmative side.
The two prized Forensic representatives were kept
on the defensive throughout the performance. Em-
phatically and convincingly the women debaters put
forth their sane objections to socialized medicine,
offering more conservative measures as the better
solution to the national health situation. At the close
of the informative and revealing discussion. Judge
Kathryn Warren rendered the decision favoring the
The Women's Literary Society, however, is not
primarily a debating society or a political science
club. Its main interests, as its title implies, are liter-
ary. It affords its members the opportunity to become
acquainted with the world-famous works of music,
literature, and fine arts.
In the Society's assembly program, given shortly
before Christmas, the audience took a trip "Around
the World" with music and orations. Ireland's lilting
air, "Danny Boy," a review of the best recent novel
on South Africa, "Cry, the Beloved Country," and
the French piano composition, "Little White Don-
key," were featured on the program. In Canadian
vernacular, Verne Scott quoted "Little Batiste." Joy
Beardshaw took us on a fast trip around the world
on her marimba, with several clever adaptations
of "Chop Sticks," while Gennie Blackburn finished
the program with a devotional thought based on the
nationally-known missionary, David Brainerd.
When Miss Anne Childs of I.V.F. visited the Bible
College in January, she was welcomed by the Liter-
ary Society at one of its Thursday night gatherings
to speak on the value of literature in the Christian's
life. The fact that the study of the world's greatest
literary works, both pagan and Christian, results in a
deeper concept and appreciation of God was im-
pressed upon Lit members in her address. Her
observations were comparable to Tozer's, as he
spoke on the creative work of men down through
the ages: "It is my own belief that every good and
beautiful thing which man has produced in the
world has been the result of his faulty and sin-
blocked response to the creative Voice sounding over
the earth. This universal voice has ever sounded
. . . Could it be that this Voice . . . has been the
undiscovered cause of the troubled conscience and
the longing for immortality confessed by millions
since the dawn of recorded history?" The spoken
and written works of men evidence man's inherent
dissatisfaction, and the all-sufficiency of Jesus Christ.
Women's Lit was ably led through the first se-
mester by President Marilyn Shaver, assisted by
Annamae Opper and Marlys Anderson, vice-presi-
dents; Elizabeth Mills, secretary; June Jenkins,
treasurer; and Joy Beardshaw, master-sergeant. New
officers for the Society were installed at a candlelight
service in February. Elaine Brownlee accepted the
president's gavel. Others serving for the new term
were Jane Powell and Verne Scott, vice-presidents;
Virginia Penn, secretary; Anne McQuilkin, treasurer;
and Marian Willets, master-sergeant.

ON THE MOMENTOUS day of October
the fifteenth, nineteen-hundred and thirty-

themselves free and independent of this

Since that momentous day, the Philologian
Forensic Society has progressed steadily in
the fulfillment of the original plan. Through
forums, debates, and talks the Society has

emphasis on Christian responsibility.
The topics of some of the programs will

MR. & MRS. G. WILLIAM SUPPLEE
A VALUABLE ADDITION was made
to C. B. C.'s musical staff this year by the
coming of Mr. and Mrs. G. William
Supplee. Mrs. Supplee is a Wheaton
graduate and a former vocalist over
Moody Bible Institute's station WMBI.
In 1948 Mr. Supplee finished his training
at Wheaton with a double major in
piano and voice. Since that time he has
worked as a producer with WMBI, and
directed the College Church choir at
Wheaton. Since their arrival here, a
Women's Glee Club, and also a Men's
Chorus, have been begun. Working with
Mr. Brooks Sanders, these newest newly-
weds of C. B. C. have helped train many
students this year in voice, piano, and
Double congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. G.
William Supplee. They inaugurated a pro-
gressive music department and (lest we
forget) are the faculty's newest newlyweds.
They toured the South-cast
OF THE AIR CHOIR
The Supplees' experience in radio
proved of real benefit to the Bible Col-
lege last November, when a 5-minute
broadcast was begun over local station
WCOS. C. B C.'s "Little Chapel of the
Air," featured a ten-voice ensemble di-
rected by Mr. Supplee and accompanied
by Joy Beardshaw. Mrs. Supplee supple-
mented the ranks of the vocalists, who
included Mary Ellen Powers and Sophie
Graham, sopranos; June Markus, Jean
Rumbaugh, and Mary Harrington, altos;
Wendell Sullivan, Howard Blair, and
Don Moses, tenors; and Russ Ferry,
Bruce Shelley, and Burt Harding, basses.
Between musical numbers, Mr. Brooks
Sanders, also experienced in radio, reads
the script, usually a human interest story
with a spiritual message. Shortly after
the Little Chapel's debut, postal cards
and telephone calls poured into the
WCOS studios, expressing the listeners'
appreciation of C. B. C.'s morning broad-
Music has played an important part
in all of C. B. C.'s activities this year.
A pre-Christmas program, featuring most
of the Bible College's fruitful talent, in-
cluded all of the best-known seasonal
numbers. In January, Mr. and Mrs. Sup-
plee's vocal and instrumental students
staged a well-attended recital.
WOMEN'S GLEE CLUB
The Women's Glee Club was organ-
ized early in the fall. During the anni-
versary celebration in October, the group
made its first appearance. The C. B. C.
family was favorably impressed with
their first presentation, "The Name of

holidays, plans were laid for a week's
tour during vacation time. The twenty-
eight girls left on a busy trip from Co-
lumbia to Augusta, Lincolnton, Griffin
and Atlanta, Georgia; to Chattanooga
and Knoxville, Tennessee; to Charlotte,
North Carolina; and Lancaster, South
Carolina. In addition to several group
arrangements, trio, duet, quartet, and
solo numbers were featured. Verta Need-
ham, Kay Harrington, Elva Brownlee,
and Sophie Graham were among the
soloists, and a C. B. C. trio combination
—Sally Arner, Sophie and Louise Gra-
ham—appeared often on the program.
A men's glee club of 32 members was
also organized this year (second semes-
ter). The first officers of this group were
Bill Stone, President; Russ Ferry, Busi-
ness Manager; and Fred Tenny, Secre-

can travel non-stop across Pennsylvania. The famed
Pennsylvania Turnpike, four lane, limited-access, cross-
ingless highway with easy curves and grades, originally
started near Harrisburg and extended westward over
the rugged Alleghenies to within a few miles of Pitts-
burgh. Now this great highway is being pushed west-
ward to the Ohio border and eastward to suburban
Surveyed and planned between 1935 and 1938, the
160-mile mountain section of this Super-Highway was
built in two years. The extension to the East 100 miles
long was completed this month. The 67-mile connec-
tion to the Ohio border will be completed in 1951.
When completed the Pennsylvania Turnpike will ex-
tend 327 miles from Pennsylvania's Western border to
the great National Shrine of Valley Forge on the out-
skirts of Philadelphia. The turnpike with its twin traf-
fic lanes, traverses the most beautiful of American land-
scapes—prosperous, well-kept farm land, majestic hills
and mountain ranges, the entire right-of-way free from

through them in seven well-ventilated, well-illuminated
tunnels. Alongside the highway, about every 17 miles,
are modern utility stations with clean rest rooms and

Although a speed of 70 miles per hour is permitted
over most of the Turnpike, it is the safest of all high-
speed highways. Not only is it the safest, but the
smoothest and most beautiful.
HOW THE SUPER-HIGHWAY
A contract is given to the lowest bidder in that lo-
cality of highway. For the East extension over 20 con-
tracts were given to twenty separate contracting com-
panies. This is an example of American private enter-
prise doing big business.
The contract pictured above was given to the H. J.
Williams company. It is 4 1/3 miles long, costing 1 1/2
million dollars. In these 4 1/3 miles there were eight
bridges crossing highways and three arches for streams.

JUNIORS REVEAL WHY THE FINAL IS DEDICATED TO YOU
FINIAL SETS NEW PRECEDENT IN YEARBOOK JOURNALISM
Editor Explains New Format
"I have longed to introduce
an annual that would break the
traditions of yearbook journal-
ism," stated Finial Editor, Eu-
gene Madeira, as he began his
explanation of this year's new
format in a recent interview.
"With this idea in mind,
explained Madeira, "We theEditors
and staff set out to achieve a
new precedent in yearbook design
by utilizing the elements of
mystery and surprise, by uniting
the book with a meaningful use
of the intrinsic relationships
between the various parts of
school life and by the nse of
modern principles of Christian
j ournalism. "
Continuing, Madeira said
t hat this yearbook is proof that
a yearbook need no longer be
stolidly frozen to the familiar
format, but can be a vitally
new and meaningful presentation
of the school year.
To produce this new book,
Madeira said three basic elements
or princ iples were carried through
out the book. T bey are as follows:
1. MAGAZINE STYLE. Traditional
time worn divider pages, with
trite titles are removed. Head-
line stories of events in which
you participated and photographs
of those activities are present-
ed in a magazine style.
2. MEANINGFUL PHOTOGRAPHY
A faculty section with antique
portraits, making them impersonal
mummies is eliminated. To re-
call how human they are, we have
given you vivid, interesting ev-
ents or characteristics about
them, and have emphasized a diff-
erent aspect for each. Meaning-
ful photographs are used instead
of prosaic posed pictures.
3. ADVENTURE AND SURPRISE
To provide you with adventure as
you read this book, there are
mysteries of relationships betw-
een the placing of each faculty
member, and the order in which
articles occur. We have given
many hints. Some are advisors
of classes and organizations,
others have more to do with you
when you register. One is avet-
Madeira concluded that he
believed our efforts will help
to give a meaningful represent-
ation of our experience at Colum-
bia Bible College.

Vote Held Last September
In a secret interview last
night, Pres. Frank Sanders of
the Junior Class disclosed the
reasons for the unanimous decis-
ion of the Junior Class made
last Sept. to dedicate the year-
book to you, the possessor of
t his book.
"In honoring yon in this
manner," Sanders explained, , "the
intention of the Junior Class
is to emphasize anddepict graph-
ically your individual responsi-
bility as a representative of the
Lord Jesus Christ."
Though it would hardly be
proper to dedicate snch a mater-
ial object, that is neither evan-
gelistic nor instructive, to
Christ, Sanders said that it is
fitting to remind the members of
Christ's body, of their respon-
sibility as His ambassadors. There-
fore we, the Junior Class, dedi-
cate the 1950 Finial to you as a
reminder not only of your posit-
ion in Christ, but also of your
obligation to make Him known.
"With this aim in mind we
designed the book around you
the individual, including your
background, home address, and
activities and have represented
your school year with meaning-
ful photographs of your of f icers,
teachers, activities and frie nds. "
In conclusion Sanders said
that he hoped that the book will
also remind the departing stud-
ents that you are REPRESENTAT-

Unlike government-owned utility projects which are sub-

2000 TRANSLATORS NEEDED— to new recruits by summer of 1950
The Bible can't be printed until there is a written language in which to print it.
TWTYCLIFFE has reached another milestone on
the advance, but what are 54 tribes now with
translators in comparison to over a thousand more
without? When we began 15 years ago, we knew of
only 1,000 Bible-less tribes. Today we know that there
are many more. To complete the task in this generation,
we shall have to advance ten times as fast during the
next 15 years as we have in the past fifteen. It is only
natural that we should rejoice over the 200 pioneer
missionaries that God has already raised up for our
Bible translation movement, but it will take 2,000
more within the next 15 years to bring within sight our
goal of no more Bible-less tribes by 1980.
Yes, only a start has been made, but it has been made
in the face of big obstacles, closed doors, barriers of
many kinds, and problems of health, training, support,
etc. One of the big obstacles overcome in 1949 has been
that of transportation for the pioneers in the jungles
of Peru. But two additional planes were added.
