King Solomon was known as the man 
with all the answers. People from 
nations far and near would seek him 
out hoping tc gain insight for solutions 
towards the problems of J^eir countnes. 
If he were still around, there s no doubt 
he would be a tremendous asset to the 
college community. But when you give 
it some thought, it is a greater blessing 
that there are no Solomons around upon 
which we would becme dependent tor 
wisdom. Solomon gained his virtue 
through his personal encounter with 
God. the very source of reality. _ 
Promises like James 1:5-6 direct those m 
need to experience a similar relation- 

^ 'in the book of Proverbs there are 
many principles which can guide an in- 
dividual into his or her own relationship 
with knowledge. The first stated, and 
most valuable is, "The fear of the Lord 
is the beginning of knowledge .... .'1 
will pour out my spirit upon you, I will 
make my words known unto you . 
Prov. 1:7. 23. Solomon declared 
another veryimportant principle in these 
approximate words, "He who answers a 
natter before he hears it out, it is shame 
and folly unto him." Prov. 18:13. This 
second statement emphaxizes the im- 
portance of learning the whole story; all 
the information--of listening. 

Many are the questions which reside, 
as do students and faculty, at Southern 
Missionary College. Some are questions 
on religious matters. Others are 
questions dealing with school policies. 
or maybe the social aspects of campus 
life. Some questions we don't know in 
which "cubby-hole" to put them, but 

they are nevertheless there. It is the 
hope and purpose of this new column to 
present sought-out answers to these 
questions, . . .providing you should ask 
them. Why? Answers can dispel 
animosity. Answers can bring about 
harmony through understanding. An- 
swers can lead to positive action. 
Questions arise bet\veen students and 
teachers; teachers and students; studen- 
ts and students; teachers and teachetl^ 
As you can see. there are may bridges to 
cross. If you have any questions 

regarding any aspect of the S.M.C. 
college community, you may want to 
direct them to this column. If the 
question is inclusive enough, if is likely 
that others will also benefit from the 
replies. We will try to get as candid 
responses as possible from whatever 
sources of information we are able to in- 
vestigate. There will be mailboxes 
posted around the campus at easily ac- 
cesible locations,labeled "Southern Ac- 
cent". Direct the questions to this 
column and include your name, though 
it will not be printed, so that if a 
question is unclear we can get back to 

Please do not present questions or 
statements in the form of a gripe. We 
do not see it our duty to become a lever 
by which to pass responsibility on to 
others. If we can find some answers 
which will help you deal with matters of 
concern, or simply to appreciate a state 
of affairs, then something worthwhile 
has been accomplished. "Wherefore, 
beloved brethren let us be swift to hear, 
slow to speak, slow to wrath." James

Dazzled by the sunlight which 
filtered through the rag-curtain window, 
I had bid the world 'good morning.' 
With much effort I emerged from bed 
and cautiously guided my feet across the 
floor toward the sink. Locating the now 
familiar faucet, I turned it on and 
proceeded to wash my face. My hands 
fumbled with the soap, which seemed to 
come alive as though it were a hooked 
fish. Bending over the sink, rubbing the 
soap vigorously between my palms, it 
shot out from my grasp bouncing off the 
mirror smashing me between the eyes! 
Having little patience I slowly counted 
to ten and recovered my sanity. 

After a reasonable bout with my op- 
ponent"99 44% pure--I began to search 
for my favorite towel, salvaged during a 
stay at a resort motel. Staggering about 
the room the inebvitable hap- 

pened. ..BANG! Suddenly the whole 
worid crashed on my little toe. The cry 
of pain, like molten lava spewing from 
the mouth of a volcanoe but only 
managed to awaken my landlady who 
threatened, among other pleasantries, to 
telephone the Bellevue Hospital psycho 
ward and have me committed. 

Having cooled down, my senses 
regained. I embarked upon the daily 
ritual of shaving my face, a procedure 
related to sacrificial suicide. Thanks to 
styptic pencil, various creams and 
lotions, and my new dial-a-matic, super- 
chrome injector razor, my chances ot 
sur\'iving involuntary 'hari kari' are 
greatly insured. Somehow managing to 
clothe my emaciated frame, I could not 
keep from thinking. 'Today is the finj 
day of the rest of my life.' and I prayed 
for deliverance from this captive existen- 
,ce."Thomas Tucker

Present Federal health care and ad- 
ministrative requirements for home 
health services are not enforceable or 
measurable in terms of quality care. 
Without appropriate assurance of care, 
there are no controls over the quality of 

is on to expand home health 
For example, the Department of Health, 
Education and Welfare recently 
published final regulations in the 
liberalizing home health servicesunder 
the Medicaid program. We run the 
danger, however, of inviting fraud and 
abuse if we fail to implement at the 
same time quality standards for home 
health care. If the government uses tax 
funds to encourage or induce a system of 
home health care, it clearly has the 
responsibility to provide adequate 
regulation of the delivery system at least 
equal to the regulation of the delivery 
system at least equal to the regulation of 

institutional providers. 

I have recently co-sponsored 
legislation to remedy this situation. My 
hill sets up a Commission to develop ap- 
propnate standards, compliance with 
which will allow all entities that qualify ■ 
-including homemakers. home health 

physicians, social workers, therapists-to 
participate in the home health programs 
of Medicare. Medicaid, and Title XX. 
Furthermore, such a standard is an 
essential step in the evaluation of a more 
uniform, coordinated, and rational ap. 
proach to the Federal financing of home 

The Health and Oversight Sub- 
committees of the House Ways and 
Means Committee intend to conduct an 
examination of home health services. 
Certainly, the issue of standards will be 
an appropriate matter for consideration. 

The need for this legislation has been 
cited by several groups including the 
National Association of Home Health 
Agencies. Unihealth Services, the Ben- 
net Group, the American Association of 
Retired Persons. National Retired 
Teachers Association, and the Child 
Welfare League. 

If you believe, as I do, that it is essen- 
tial to put standards before eligibility, I 
hope you will let me know.

for instance, he led the first group of 
Private American citizens into Soveit 
Russia, was a candidate for Congress, 
as well as a foreign corespondent for a 
large newspaper. Baker's rapid fire lec- 
ture style is loaded with wit, with the 
anecedotes being drawn from over 60 
years of work and travel. 

A citation he received from Loma 
Linda University last ]une at 
graduation, pretty well sums it up: 
'Taking the world for his province, 
Alonzo Lafayette Baker has scrutnized 
the restless panarama fo men, govern- 
ment, and events.. .and reported with 
incisive wit and felicitous phrase, to the 
pleasure and enlightment of uncounted

Health carurs an expanding 
with Portland Advmtist Medical Center 

Employment in the health field is 
expected to grow very rapidly. 

And students preparing for medical 
careers can look forward to the bright- 
est of employment prospects. Good 
pay, good working conditions, and— 
most important — excellent opportuni- 

This is the projection made by the 
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in its 
latest Occupational Outlook report. A 
wide range of openings is seen through 
the mid-1 980's. 

Because of the need to staff the new 
Advenlisl Medical Center as well as 
healthcare facilities at the Mt. Tabor 
site, the opportunities for employment 
in this field can be expected to remain 
as high as they have ever been in the 
Portland area for some time. 

The hospital is always looking for 
graduates who not only are technically 
proficient but also are in harmony with 
the Church's medical ministry objec- 

Some of the distinct advantages in 
practicing one's chosen profession at 
Portland Adventist Hospital include 
association with Christian people who 
also are committed people, performing 
one of the Church's most important 
services — its "right arm" ministry, and 
meeting the physical needs of people 
by extending healing to the whole man 
— including the spiritual. In short, a 
highly privileged opportunity. 

Here are a few of the many oppor- 
tunities being extended to young spe- 
cialists, both men and women. 

Physicians — needs will continue lo 
exist in every specialty, particular!" in 
family medicine. 

Dentists — opportunities are numcr- 

Niirses^lhe demand for Christian 
nurses is always strong. 

Technicians — dental hygienists, 
medical laboratory workers, respira- 
tory therapists and many other special- 
ists under this general heading are in 
constant demand. 

Dietitians — numerous opportunities

"Leaves" Buds at SMC 

'^J Hey! Have you heard about S.M-C.'s 

newest club? It's called "Leaves of 
Autumn". It is a club that meets an im- 
portant need - "The message of truth is 
to go to all nations, tongues, and people; 
its publications, printed in many dif- 
ferent languages, are to be scattered 
abroad like the leaves of autumn." 4T 
79 There you have it. Now, how do you 
go about spreading publications when 
you don't have much money? Very sim- 
ply -- organi2e a club whereby literature 
is gathered to be provided free of charge 
10 students for distribution purposes. 

Over 4,000 books were given away 
last year. Here are a few suggestions on 
how to distribute the materials: Keep 

mas,gift-wrap Steps to Chnst and 
Desire of Ages for door-to-door 
distribution while carolling. During 
Ingathering provide Steps to Christ for 
each car that goes out soliciting. 

You don't own a copy of Steps to 
Christ. Desire of Ages. Minis^ of 
Healing. Great Controversy, or Bible 
Readings for the Home? Feel free to 
pick up a copy for yourself. However, 
there is a catch to this part. If you take 
a copy for yourself- you've got to study 
it! But be careful, they are guaranteed 
to change your life {if you let the Holy 
Spirit do so). 

'Leaves' also collects any S.D.A. 
literature -old Insights, Reviews,etc. 
Don't throw them away, drop them in 
the boxes at the dorms and they can be 
put to use overseas or at home in 

mission fields. 

Where does the money come from to 
buy this literature? Contribution is the 
main source. There will be penny drives 
in the dorms (over 150 dollars were 
collected this way last year). About 
SIO.OO will buy 100 Steps to Christ so 
the money goes a long way. Any con- 
tributions of any size are gratefully 
taken. Many students felt burdened to 
systematically give donations 
throughout the year. 

The Leaves of Autumn office is 
located in the Student Center just before 
you get to the game (ping pong) room. 
Our literature is stored here for your 
use. A paper is placed upon the desk for 
you to sign out what you take. For more 
information. Contact Rick Blondo at

Witness Your Faith in Off- 
Campus Religious Activities 

Story Hour Active 
with Area Children 

1 am always fascinated by Isa. 5J:12, 
which says that Jesus looked at the 
travail of His soul and was satisfied. As 
this school year begins, each of you has 
the opportunity to follow in the footsteps 
of your Master. The Lord Jesus Christ 
has specifically chosen you to work for 
Him in a position He has selected for 
you according to the talents He has 
given you. Because of th's, your Student 
Association is working to provide you 
with a number of different opportunities 
for you to put these talents to work in 
God's holy vineyard. 

One of the areas in which you are 
probably interested in is Off Campus 
Activities. These activities are planned 
to provide as many different avenues of 
witnessing as possible to a student 
population filled with a desire to share 
the love of Jesus. 

This year we are going lo continue 
the Bonney Oaks program and those 
who arc interested can talk to Teri 
Gulbranson. (4572) Also continuing this 
year are jail bands - Tim Mountcastle, 
Story Hour-(Branch Sabbath School)- 

Randy Mills (4761). and the Rock 
Springs Church Project- Warren Auld or 
Steve Torgeson (396-2785). Bible 
studies and other programs are in the 
process of being developed. 

There is much potential, in terms of 
student involvement, on this campus 
and we in Off-Campus Religious Ac- 
tivities desire to be used by the Lord to 
do as much as possible to provide some 
programs for you to work in. Any ideas 
and suggestions about how to help in 
this work will be deeply appreciated. 

There is one more thing that we 
would like to share with you. Our 
primary objective is to work in harmony 
and love with all the other programs and 
people, to be able to present to the world 
the unified body of Christ and when we 
let Jesus bring us together, then His wor- 
ds will come true. "And 1, if 1 be lifted 
up from the earth will draw all men unto 
me.John 12:32. This year let Jesus have 
control of your This year let Jesus have 
control of your total life and give Him 
the opportunity to reveal Himself 
through you both on the campus and off 
the campus. Greg Goodchild 

Branch Sabbath School for children, 
otherwise known as 'The Story Hour', 
so you can see that it is a relatively new 
project. You may be wondering exactly 
what 'The Story Hour is and whai is the 
purpose of having this project. In Mark 
10:14,15 Jesus said, 'Let the children 
come to' me do not hinder them, for to 
such belongs the kingdom of God. 
Truly, 1 say to you, whoever does not 
receive the kingdom of God like a child 
shall not enter it.' Jesus took the 
children and blessed them. 

Jesus knew the importance of 
training- young minds and spending 
time with them. He was telling His 

disciples to love the children, 
time with them, and to observe thi] 
faith. Look how they never worry ai 
how they have complete and perfal 
faith in their parents. Jesus was telliif 
His disciples that their trust ir "■ 
must become like that of a child. 

'The Story Hour' is a wonderful eil 
perience to build your faith. If jj 
would like to know more about 
Story Hour' and how you can be 
involved, come to the Cube Room i 
the Student Center Thrusday nig 
7:00 p.m. This meeting will take liil 
place of worship. If for soi 
you can't make it and yon are

Dr. Wallher Begins 
Church Hitiory Series 

Wednesday evening at the 
Collegedale Church. Dr. Daniel 
Walther. Professor of Church History, 
spoke to a crowd composed of a few at- 
tcndve elderly folk and a handful of 
college students. 

Dr. Walther began the First of his 
series 'Great Voices of Reformation 
Times', with the statement ' any church, 
after its organization, is soon in need of 
[refonnation.' Then followed an in- 
teresting and informative lecture on the 
greatest Reformer. Martin Luther. 

According to Walther the Refor- 
mation was the most important event of 
the 16th century, and has greatly in- 
fluenced events that succeeded it up to 
the present, and Martin Luther was the 
best representative of God's will at that 
lime and the man most instrumental in 
bring g it about.

Have you ever thought of yourselfai; 
wordworker? Actually we all arc. It is 
through words that we express our 
thoughts or emotions. Without word- 
we would be unable to record, preserve, 
explain, or enjoy the learning of th^ 
ages. Man's unique ability to com- 
municate effectively depends upon z 
familiarity and facility with words. 

Imagine carpenters, whose livelihood 
depends upon the ability to work wiili 
wood. Before they can build anything 
they must learn how to handle the raw 
material of their trade. First, they study 
the different kinds of wood: its uses. it\ 
textures, and its weaknesses and 
sirenghths. Through practice they learn 
to cut. shape, and smooth their work so 
that it serves the purpose lor which it is 

So it is with words, the raw material 
of language. First, we must recognize

it became apparent that a building erec- 
ted solely for the purpose of a playhouse 
proved to be a rather cramped office. 

Larger quarters were eventually 
provided for the college president, and 
the Doll House found itself serving as a 
storage shed for bee keeping supplies. 

The next plan proposed for the Doll 
House was to convert it into the music 
concervatory. However, before this 
could be done, smallpox made its debut 
on campus, and the small building 
became the infirmary. 

After the smallpox epidemic 
dissipated, the structure was mo\ed to 
the site where Daniels Hall now stands 
There it served as a women's dormitory 
Presumably, this was in the campus 
tradition of telephone booth stuffing 

Next the Doll House served as a 
prayer room, and then as a music 
studio. During its service for music.

Through practice you will learn how 
to use words accurately and effectively. 
You will know, for instance, to rely on 
concrete nouns and on strong, active 
verbs for imapct. You will use passive 
verbs less frequently since they can lack 
strength and character. You will come 
to understand that if you are precise in

have no need to add qualifying adverbs 
or adjectives to make yourself un- 

A competent writer is one who uses 
qualifying words or phrases sparingly. 
Sentences built with strength and 
precision require no patching or ad-

uses the positive rather than negative. It 
is also better to avoid colloquial.foreign. 
or slang expressions because they can 
interrupt the smooth flow of English. 

One of the best ways to improve your 
facility with words is to keep a dic-

habit of looking up new words, you will

An interview With the Mayor , Fred Fuller 

Merry Lee Collver and 
Kim Miles 

Recently The ACCENT interviewed 
Fred Fuller, Mayor of Collegedale. The 
Mayor, elected in Jan. of 1969, is now 
serving his 4th term. 

Q: How do you become Mayor? 

Mayor: There are 5 commisioners 
that operate the town, the mayor is elec- 
ted from these five men. 

Q: How long is the term of office? 

Mayor: Term of office is 2 years, I 
have been serving for 4 terms, but I 
don't intend to run again. 

Q: How does it affect you to have 2 
Jobs, Mayor and full-time Insurance 

Mayor: I have averaged 30 hours a 

week as Mayor, while the city pays 
nothing,, ..because of the hours I work, 
is one reason I'm not running again so 
that I can spend more time with my 

Q: Does being Mayor entail any 

Mayor; Yes, I have made numerous 
trips to Nashville and Atlanta, yet the 
city has taken care of little of my ex- 

Southeastem Tennessee development 
district. This is a board made up of all 
judges and all mayors of 13 counties. 10 
in Tennessee and 3 in Georgia. I have 
resigned as Chairman and I now serve as 
Secretary of Treasure. 

Q: What are the duties of Mayor? 

Mayor: The Mayor presides at the 
Commision Meetings twice a month, he 
also signs contracts for the city. 

Mayor: The last 3 years I served 
Chairman of the Chattanooga Area 
Regional Counsel of Government in 

What have been some of thi 

$700,000 to repair the

Joe Freshman stumbles through the 

Should he look under nuclear energy, 
US Marine Corps, or biology? After 20 
minutes of wading through book cards 
the 'N' drawer, Joe Freshman realizes 
books aren't filed by subject in these 
catolog drawers. Where, oh where, are 
the subject cards? 

Joe begins to pace the floor and cir- 
cling the catolog he finds... Can you 
believe it? Another whole side of card 
drawers residing here-SUBJECTS. Joe 
Freshman spends ten more minutes flip- 
ping through the N's. He finally decides 
to ask the reference Librarian for help. 

But. Joe sees racks of Journals. 
Astonishment widens his eyes. Look at 
those magizines. There must be over a 
thousand of them. Joe Freshman

later, Joe Freshman rouses to his sense 
of biological necessities. He elevates his 
body from the depths of an overstuffed 
chair to satisfy his parched throat. 

A sign at the drinking fountain ir 
trigues him. SDA library? The SDA' 
have their own private library? 
Periodicals, books, heritag 

publications, EG While books... 

That's right Joe, and the McKe 
Library offers many other selections and 
services. Did you see the train books of 
which Mr. Davis, Librarian, is so fond? 
Or the cookbooks? What a collection! 
No wonder the Home Ec girls win so 
many honors. The collection of Civil 
War books is one of the most complete 
in the South. Did you see the cassetts of 
sermons, speechs, and lectures? Take a 
look at the juvenile books on second 
floor. TTiey boast 2,500 volumes. If you 
want a more dignified book, one that is 
not definitive or in-depth, the browsing 
section behind the journal racks are the 
stacks for you. There you can pick up 
How-to-do-it books, craft volumes, sport 
stories, and spelunking books. Come 
and enjoy your library. 

And Joe. don't be afraid to ask the 
librarian for help. She wants to assist 
you. Why don't you try looking up 
Marine Biology? 

Collegedale, building the sidewalks and 
installing the 'walk* signs, a picnic park 
just built this spring which is located 
just across the railroad tracks to the 
right. Also the Collegedale Airport, 
where it has been arranged that students 
can get credit for aviation courses. 

Q: What is the area of Collegedale? 

Mayor: Approximately 9 miles of 
town. The thing that is so odd about our 
town is that several different pieces of 
property which are in the boundaries of 
Collegedale, are not. The people owning 
these pieces of property would not 
become a part of this community. They 
felt since the majority of this area are 

Mayor: There is less crime here, 
both because it's small and because its 
mainly Adventist. but criminals find 
Collegedale to be a good hiding place. 

Q: Do you find being Mayor a good 
opportunity to witness as an SDA? 

Mayor: Yes. for instance at meetings 
and banquets the fellow members ob- 
served that 1 didn't drink coffee, tea, or 
eat meats and they asked why. which 
give me a good opportunity to witness. 
At a large convention, serving 700 
people, even though I was the only SDA 
attending they planned the menu so that 
it would also be appropiate for me. 
Also, the meetings were always set up so 
that I could get home before sundown 
on Friday.

Senate Elections Today and Tomorrow 

The dates scheduled for the annual 
Student Senate Elections are Thursday 
September 16, and Friday September 17. 
Voting is scheduled to be in the dorms, 
Student Center, and Cafeteria. 

Article Seven, Section Two of the SA 
Constitution States that: The voting 
membership of the Senate shall be: A, 
The President, Executive Vice- 
President, and Religious Vice-President. 
B. Seven members from the Girl's 
Dorm. C. Seven members from the 
Men's Dorm. D. Five members from 
(he village students at large. 

The village students are the only ( 

two precincts with no candidate. That- 
cher Hall has one precinct with no can- 
didate, and Jones Hall has no candidate 
at all. That makes a total of ap- 
proximately 353 or one-sixth of the 
student population thai isn't being 
represented in the only form of govern- 
ment students have. 

However, candidates say it is 
precisely this apathy they will be 
working to cure if they are elected. 

It appears that the student body will 
be well-represented by those who are 
winning. It's hoped that these Senators 
will generate a great deal of enthusiasm 
in their respective constituencies this 

g year. 

The enrollment at SMC has now 
passed 1 776 students, according to Ken- 
neth Spears, director of admissions and 

The figure marked an all-time high 
and had been sought by the college in 
accordance with the bicentennial spirit. 
The slogan for student recruitment was 
"1776 in 1976."

Is Jesus asking too much? 

What Doth God 
Require off Thee? 

"He hath showed thee, O man, what 
is good; and what doth the Lord require 
of thee, but to do justly, and to love mer- 
cy, and to walk humbly with thy God," 
Micah 6:8. 

Let us meditate on the statement of 
the ancient Prophet, "to do justly." 
Justly is mentioned three times in the 
Blessed Book. Once in the Old 
Testament and twice in the New 
Testament. Micah 6:8, Luke 23:41 and 
I Thessalonians 2:10. 

The ancient nation of Rome prided 
itself on its purity in the administration 
of justice. 

The ancient nation of Rome prided 
itself on its purity in the administration 
of justice. By every judgment seat, in 
every court throughout the empire stood 
the statue of Themis the Greek Goddess 
of Justice. Pure justice must be ad- 
ministered to every nationality, race, 
and religion. The court was to be the 
personification of Law and Order. 

When brought into court the 
petitioner would take his or her place in 
front of the statue of Themis, looking 
full into her face, and plead for justice. 
No judge would presume to deal un- 
justly with such a petitioner. 

It seems to me that the greatest 
irony, the greatest contradiction, the 
greatest miscarriage of justice was 
meted out in the trial and condemnation 
ofthe Blessed Christ. 

It has been said that the trial did not 
take place in the Hall of Justice where 
stood the statue of Themis, but in the of- 
ficial residence of Pilate-sometimes 
called the Hall of Pilate. 

Had the trial taken place in the Hall 
of Justice would the verdict have been 
the same? We will never know in this 
world will we? 

It is our divine privilege- 
To deal justly with Gixl. 

To deal justly with our fellows. 

To deal justly with ourselves.

Once again, the Pharisees had suc- 
ceeded in making fools of themselves 
while hoping to trap Jesus in saying 
something that could be used against 
him in court. They must have been sit- 
ting at the supper table thinking of new 
ways to trap him and wondering how he 
had gotten out of another one. About 
this same time as Jesus was on his way to 
Jerusaslem, a young man came and said 
to him. "Good Master, what good thing 
shall I do, that I may have eternal life?" 
Jesus told the young man to keep the 
commandments. The man replied that 
he had kept them since he was a child. 
Then Jesus said. "You lack one thing; 
go and sell what you have, and give to 
the poor and come, follow me." The 
rich young ruler apparently felt that 
Christ was asking too much and he went 
away sorrowful. 

If, in fact, this young man felt that 
Jesus was asking too much of him he 
was certainly wrong, for heaven is cheap 
enough no matter what the price. I won- 
der how many of us here at S M C feel 
the same way, that Jesus is asking too 

The "one thing" that is holding you

Do you sometimes feel that you are s 
plaything of Satan and he leads you to 
do exactly what he wants? If so. yon 
should prayerfully and persevcringly 
seek to practice health reform by rlie 
grace of God. "Anything in eating and 
drinking which disqualifies the mental 
powers for healthful and active exercise 
is an aggravating sin in the sight of 
God." Confrontation p. 83. 

Our Saviour was tempted in all poin- 
ts like as we are and He will bring us off 
more than conquerors if we will trust in 
Him for strength. "It is impossible for 
man to be tempted above wnat he is able 
to bear while he relies upon Jesus, the 
infinite Conqueror." Confrontation p, 

We are on the borders of Canaan, so

laborers are needed. The Lord calls for 
decided efforts to be put forth in places 
where the people know nothing of Bible 
turth. Singing and praying and Bible- 
readings are needed in the homes ofthe 
people. Now, just now, is the fime to 
obey the comission. Teaching them to 
observe all things whatsoever I have 
commanded you.' Those who do this 
work must have a ready knowledge of 
the Scriptures. 'It is written' is to be 
their weapen of defense. God has given 
us light on His word, that we may give 
this light to our fellow-men. The truth 
spoken by Christ will reach hearts. A

The Holy Bible is the oldest book on 
record. Yet is has touched the hearts of 
all who have searched its pages with sin-

There's Gold In Collegedalel ReligioUS NeWS 


.It sure was a long Bible 
study I hope that he'll see the light 
someday. Oh well, even Jesus couldn t 
convert everybody. 

What bothers me is that he used 
somany texts! I know that I've got the 
truth. I mean, after all I am a Seventh- 
Day Adventist. 1 just wish I could have 
replied to those texts. I know there must 
be an answer somewhere. 

I wish thai he would give me another 
chance to study with him. I could look 
up those text in the Commentaries, and 
be able to explain them to him. But in- 
stead he thinks that I'm too bull-headed 
and won't listen to reason. 

Oh well. I'm tired and got to go to 
bed. It sure is a nice night. Here I am 
back at SMC. Oh. I'm late lor class 
again. It's another one of those years. I 
wonder how fast I can climb Jacob's 
Ladder? Well, it doesn't matter I won't 
get there in time anyway. Wonder what 
all (hat commotion is going on over by 
Daniel's Hall? Might as well find out. a 

s late V 

t kill r 

People are sure excited. Seems as if 
Dr. Hefferlain discovered some sort of 
strange plant in the student park. Oh 
my! He said that its roots are lined with 
pure gold! He's tryping to get an ex- 
cavating party together to gather these 
rare plants. 

Look at all these students. Almost 
everyone at SMC wants to go get the 
gold! Well, I'm sure glad 1 was late to 
speech class. I would have sure hated to 
miss this and besides, if 1 skip today, it 
won't kill me, 

To here's the area with the golden 
rooted plants. There sure are alot of 
them. Look at all those students go at it 
with the picks and shovels. The ground 
is sure hard and Hefferlain says that 
they have to go pretty deep in order to 
get to the golden part of the roots. 

Look at them struggle, expecially the 
girls. This is gonna be fun. Well, my 
speech class is about half over ow. and 
still no luck. 

What's happening over there! It 
seems like a group of students are 
leaving. I'm going to find out what's 
going on. They are leaving all right. 

They say that its too much work, they 
don't think that its worth it any%vay. 
They said thai Hefferlain is a nice guy 
but sometime he gets earned away. 

Some more are leaving on the other 
side and look some more over there. We 
haven't even been here an hour yet! 
More and more people are dropping 
their picks and shovels. There are only a 
fe faithful ones left and ow even some ot 
them are leaving. , 

Oh Dr. Hefferlain is coming this 
way. He has a pick over his shoulder 
He sure looks red. Is he mad? Dr. Het- 
ferlain! Why are you coming after me! 
Don't do that! You can kill me with 
that pick. NO! Please! I didn't do a 
thing. I'm innocent, I didn't do a thing. 
I didn't do a thing. I didn't do a thing. 

Oh. I've been having a nightmare. 
Praise the Lord I'm all right. Never 
again, will I stay up all night giving a 
rediculous Bible Study! Now, hwere am 
I in my reading of Christ Object 

Ah page : 'It is essential for old 
and young, not only to read God's word, 
but to study it with wholehearted ear- 
nestness, praying and searching truth as 
for hidden treasure. Those who do this 
will be rewarded for Christ will quicken 
the understanding. Our salvation 
depends on a knowledge of the truth 
contained in the Scriptures. It is God's 
will that we should possess this and sear- 
ch, O search the precious Bible with 
hungry hearts. Explore God's word as 
the miner explores the earth to find 
veins of gold. Never give up the search 
until you have ascertained your relation- 
ship to God and His will in regard to 
you-' > 

That's it! That explains my dream. 
Too often instead of digging to find the 
roots of gold as contained in the Bible, 
we give up! NEVER give up! Perhaps 
that's wy I couldn't answer those texts in 
the Bible study! 

What about you? Are you really 
searching the Bible with a hungry heart? 
Unlike my dream. Dr. Hefferlain won't 
come after you with a pick. But you will 
regret not having a definite knowledge 
of the Bible someday. Maybe at your 

;xt Bible study.

Many people have attempcd to use 
this text as a basis for the belief that 
Jesus went to preach to the spirits of 
those that lived in Noah's day. They 
hold that he did this during the time 
between his crucifixion and ressurec- 
lion. But is the text really saying this? 
Let's examine it more carefully. 

Verse 18 tells us that Jesus suffered 
and died for the sins of us all so that we 
might have the opporutnity for 
Salvation. It goes on to say that the 
Spirit of God quickened or raised Jesus 
from the dead. 

Then verse 19 continues with the 
words: "by which also he went and 
preached unto the spirits in prison.' 

referring to the Spirit that raised Jesus 

I from the grave. Therefore it was this 
spirit of Christ that went to preach to 

the spirits in prison. Chapter One .tuc 
10 and 1 1 speaks of that Spirit of Christ 
which the prophets of old possessed 
back in the time when they prophecied 
or testified beforehand the coming of 
Christ to this earth. So the Spirit of 
Christ apparently did well on the earth 
in Old Testament times. 

Also, many times, the 'Spirit' can 
mean a living person. Compare Gal 
6:18 with 1 Thess. 5:28. Spirit is 
synonomous with the people he was 
talking to. 

The word prison in the Bible many 
times refers to Spiritual as well as 
physical imprisonment. (Isa. 61 1 2- 
Luke4:l8). ' 

So. the Spirit of Christ, speaking 
through Noah, a preacher of 
Righteousness (2Pet. 2:5). preached to 
those who were disobedient at the time 
ofGod's long suffering. He preached to 
the spintually imprisoned, but to avail- 
for only eight souls were saved

_ you find that it was jammed shut by the

Fortunately, a neighbor out walking

student body voted. Village turnout was 
15%, Talge Hall 63%, Thatcher 34%.

The highest precinct percentage was in 
precinct no.15 with 71%, and lowest tur- 
nout was in precinct no.5 with 26%. 

The newly elected senators face im- 
portant challenges. They are the 
representative decision makers and will 
ponder questions that deal with the 
qualities of student life on campus. 
They will also act as watchdogs over 

money spent from their constituencies' 

SA President, John C. Cress, is 
pleased with field of candidates and the 
great interest displayed in the multi- 
candidate precincts. 'I am looking for- 
ward to a really good Senate.' he stated. 

Cress believes that SA goals for this 
year are realistic, and stresses that 
building a workable foundation for 
future Student Associations is vital. 

A primary goal will be to establish a 
solid financial policy. Updating the 
present Working Policy, a statement of 
committee functions and officer respon- 
iibility, is another important objective.

Benny Waller, another student, along

and letting Jaws do its thing. 

We were very excited about

Nafiona/ Pvh\\c Radio 
Interviews two church leaders 

Faculty Senate Meets 

Volker Henning 

Two leaders of the Seventh-Day Ad- 
ventist church in Beirut were in- 
terviewed on National Public Radio's 
'All Things Considered' on Friday. Sep- 
tember 10. 

The five-minute interview with Aft'o- 
Mideast Division President Charles 
Watson and Departmental Director 
Jack Mahon was concerned with the 
question on how the church could 
operate under such trying conditions of 
a Civil War in the country. 

Charles Watson and Jack Mahon 
described the situation in Beirut as 
'relatively normal' and further stated 
that in its attemps to help victims of the 
war. the neutrality of the church was 

respected. This was evidence by the 
numerous times that the lines between 
the fighting forces were crossed safely on 
missions to distribute food and clothing. 

Charles Watson observed that the 
tense situation made the workers feel 
more concern for one another and ten- 
ded to mellow any Hard feelings there 
might have been previously. He further 
brought out that the Christian witness 
shines brightest under trying cir- 
cumstances giving a good opportunity 
for spreading the gospel.

The Faculty Senate meeting in 
session on Monday, September 13, con- 
sidered several Items, among them a 
plan wher^v the Health Service will no 
longer issuf excesses for illness to 
students. Instead, it will be the respon- 
sibility of the student to notify his in- 
structors who then may verify the cotl- 
dition through the Health Service if it is 
deemed r'^essaiy. This change in 
Htwttfi Service procedure was adopted 
and will go into effect after a meeting of 
the full faculty to explain the procedure 
to this group.

Moving in the spirit of the Latin mot- 
to, 'Mobilis in Mobili' ('changing with 
change') the Faculty Senate voted lo 
adopt a recommendation that the nur- 
sing students should be allowed to wear 
pant uniforms. The uniforms are to be 
selected by the Nursing Division. This 
action will go into effect next semester. 

In the case of certain labs and art 
courses, pants for female students in the 
classes involved are currently a part of 
school practice. However, in the case of 
the recently adopted recommendation, 
nursing students may wear the uniform 
anywhere on campus.

Memories From Antillian 

Antillian College, Puerto Rico, is a 
pleasant memory for Ileana Montalvo 
and Carmen Llerandi. Both are native- 
bom Puerto Ricans and have been in the 
U S only several month. Astonishingly, 
they have already mastered the English 
language and give credit to their 
schools, which teach English from the 
first grade on up. Carmen plans to com- 
plete her four year Pre-med degree here 
at SMC and then continue studies at 
f-oma Linda. Ileana has a double major 
in Home Ec and Biology. 

Antillian College, resting atop a large 
hill and over looking a scenic ocean 
view, is located near Mayaguez, a town 
on the southwestern end of Puerto Rico. 
The college boasts 900 students and of- 
fers a large number of majors, including 
nursing, biology, theology, math, 
history, ai ' ' 


Ileana and Car 

Antillian is rice and beans and an 
unusual dish made of boiled green 
bananas eaten will oil, described as 
'tasty'. The students rise at 5:30 a.m. 
each morning and worship follows soon 
afterward. These daily worships, along 
with the many active singing groups and 
evangelistic programs, have provided 
rich spiritual blessings. On Sabbath af- 
ternoons there is almost 100% par- 
ticipation with the witnessing outreach 
teams. Last year, a special three month 
witnessing effort resulted in many bap- 
tisms and a new church. 

Rain plavs an important role at An- 
tillian. When the wells run dry. water

Ott Returns To Teach 

across Puerto Rico, flooding many areas 
and, unfortunately, causing a debris- 
filled wall of water to knock out an im- 
portant bridge. This concrete bridge 
forded a stream over which the Antillian 
students had to cross in order to reach 
the college. With the bridge out, 
students were unable to attend classes, 
and school was dismissed for a week. 

The students gathered and united in 
prayer. This delay would cause in- 
creased class assignments and other 
schedule problems. 

A trail was made detouring through 
the undergrowth, circling up the hill and 
leading up the the college. School 
reopened and the students trudged 45 
minutes up this muddy path. But God 
is answering their prayers, and plans are 
now being made to purchase a metal 
suspension bridge that can't be 
destroyed by the yearly rains, 

Carmen and Ileana say that Antillian 
'is not rich and fancy, but we enjoyed it. 
Antillian College has really prepared us 
to appreciate SMC. We thank God that 
we are here. It's like a dream.' 

Ott, a former SMC Modern 
instructor, has returned 
from Andrews University, where he 
worked toward his Doctrate in Religious 
Education and completed his Masters in 
Systematic Theology, 

Ott was bom in Germany and raised 
in Argentina from the age of two. where 
he was educated and received his 
Bachelor of Arts in Theology. After 
college graduation, he worked in 
Uruguay as a pastor- in tern, then served 
as Dean of Men, Bible teacher, and 
Choir Director at one of the SDA 
schools in Brazil. Following his service 
in Brazl, Ott joined the USA and the 
faculty of Mile High Academy in Den- 

ver, Colorado, where he taught Spanish 
and Bible for four years. The next year, 
1971, Ott joined the faculty of Southern 
Missionary College, where he taught 
Modern Languages up until June of 
1974. when he left for Andrews. 

Dr. Knittel, President of Southern 
Missionary College, invited Ott to join 
the faculty for the school year 1976-1977 
in February of 1976. Olt accepted, com- 
pleted his graduate studies in August, 
and is now teaching two Life and 
Teachings of Jesus classes and two

different from their own. After due con-

would have a similar but better

RvpopU from Washington 

Despite much progress in recent 
years, nursing homes and related 
facilities still rank number one on the 
list of unsafe places to be in case of a 

In 1973 there were 6,400 nursing 
home Fires (17.5 each day of the year) 
causing $3.6 million in damage. An 
estimated 500 persons lost their lives in 
single death institutional fires. 51 per- 
son lost their lives in multiple death 
fires (those killing three or more). 
Earlier this year, two Chicago nursing 
home fires killed 31 people and injured 

It is true that nursing home patients 
present a particular problem because of 
several factors: 1) their advanced age 
(average 82) 2) their failing health 
(average four disabilities) J) their men- 
tal disabilities {55 per cent are mentally 
impaired) 4) their reduced mobility- 
(less than half can walk) 5) their sen- 
sory impairment (loss of hearing, vision, 
or smell) 6) their reduced tolerance to 
heat, smoke, and gases, and 7) their 
greater susceptibility to shock. 
However, in a recently released in- 
vestigatory report of the General Ac- 
counting Office on nursing home fires, if 
was also discovered thaf'federal fire 
safety requirements do not insure life 
safety in nursing home fires." 
I GAO found that under current law 
about half of our nations 16.500 nursing 
J homes (participating in the Medicare 
I and Medicaid programs) are not 

■n Shiptay N. Pattia 

required to have automatic sprinlilers, 
despite an earlier report of the National 
Safety Council and American Nursing 
Home Association that: "aiitomati? 
sprinker systems provide the greatest 
safety to life feature available in the fire 
protection field. Not only can thev 
automatically sound an alarm, but they 
will immediately start fighting the fire 
when activated. Automatic sprinklers 
are by far the most reliable and effectve 
means of fire extinguishment. Other 
forms of protective equipment, as well 
as automatic alarms, have their special 
place but none can ever be an effective 
substitute for automatic sprinkler 

It is unthinkable that Congress has 
let this situation occur in nursing homes 
and related facilities. Upon the recom- 
mendation of the GAO 1 have co 
sponsored legislation requiring 
automatic sprinkler systems in all nur- 
sing homes receiving Medicare or 
Medicaid funds. Additionally, this 
legislation provides for direct, low in- 
terest loans to nursing homes for 
sprinkler installations (at no direct cost 
to the federal government). The cost of 
spnnkler installation will be amortized 
over a 20 year period. 

It is estimated to cost a nursing home 
(over a 20 year period) about 19 cents a 
bed each day to install complete 
automatic spnnkler systems. Is that too 
much of an expense to protect our loved 
ones? I don't think so.

This column is a weekly li k between 
the students and the president of S.M.C. 
Dr. Knittel has been president of 
SMC for six years and, although he 
has met many students, he would like to 
have a closer association with thestudent 
body. He is ready to answer your 
questions and has said that any subject 

is suitable material. However, he does 
ask that questions pertaining to in- 
dividual personalities be omitted. 

Since this is the beginning of the first 
semester and there are many new fresh- 
men on campus, I asked Dr. Knittel if 
he had any advice for them. 

'Give this new experience at least a 
two week try before say, 'I can't do it. 
Its too hard. I'm homesick." 'After two 
weeks things kind of settle down."

We use punctuation, capitalization. 

1 correct spelling to make our writing 
readable and clear to others as 
possible. These visual aids are integral 
P^rts of our written language, and it is 
important to know the basic rules that 
g'Jvern them. 

Punctuation clarifies meaning the 
gives expression to writing. Properly 
i^scd punctuation marks help readers 
understand what is before them by 
separatmg or setting off related words, 
phrases, or clauses. The nine main pun- 
cfuacion marks might be compared to 
'fie glue or nails carpenters use to join 
he.r work. A writer uses marks to 
cement or to separate, related words and 
uh-^^h"' ^^^^ identify the point at 
nich one complete thought, or part of 
one begins or ends, 

Capitalization is another visual aid to 
ji reader's understanding. Captial let- 
i-r^ denote, for instance, a proper name 
°r title, or the beinning of a sentence, a 
ine of poetry, or a quotation. They eh'lp 
remforce the purpose of punctuation 

marks such as penods or. semicolons. 
Some accomplished peots and authors 
take the liberty of ignoring the rules, but 
most of us should not. The omission of 
punctuation marks or capitals, in non- 
fiction writing expecially. is inforrect 
and an indication of bad composition. 
If you have a doubt, you can find the an- 
swer quickly by referring to a basic 
grammar or a book of rhetoric. 

Spelling, of course, is also vital to 
correct word usage. Most English words 
are derived from Latin or Greek words, 
or roots. A spelling error, therefore, 
might indicate carelessness or inac- 
curate knowledge of a word. If you do 
not understand the meaning of the 
prefixes un and in, for example, you 
might distort the use of a word in a sen- 
tence. The thought 'The person who 
beats a dog is inhuman', would be in- 
correct if the word unhuman were used. 
Uncertainty about a word can usually be 
quickly resolved by referring to a dic- 

"Word carpentry is like any other 
kind of carpentry, you must join your 
sentences smoothly.' Anatole France 

A sentence is a unit of thought ex- 
pressed by a word or related words. The 

clearer the sentences are and the 
smoother their sequence, the more in- 
teresting they will be. You want to make 
sure that your reader knows what you 
are writing about (the subject) and what 
you have to say about it (the predicate). 
Each sentence must have a main idea. 
Through the use of phrases and clauses 
you introduce other subordinate ideas. 

Depending upon the amount of 
detail and explanation it presents, a sen- 
tence can very inconstruction. It will be 
what grammarians refer to as a simple, 
compound, or complex form of sen- 
tence. But. whatever the style, related 
words should be kept together. 
Misplaced modifiers are often the 
culprits in obscure writing because it is 
not clear which word or phrase they 
modifv. For example: The girl went 
■alking in the blue hat. The phr, 

You should always keep your readers 
in mind and make it possible for them to 
understand you easiiy. Keep the verb 
close to the subjeci, Tr^ to avoid un- 
words £ha 

being read? To clear up the confusion 
you might write; Mary was reading her 
poem with Polly. 

Writing is more interesting if the 

length and style of sentences vary. After 
a number of long statements, make .1 
point of using a short one. Your com- 
position will make belter reading and 
will be neither boring nor overly com- 

A paragraph is a series of sentences 
that develops a unified thought. Tin- 
lead sentence presents the topic thai ps' 
to follow. Then, subsequent sentences 
detail in logical order its substance. Tlie 
last sentence in a paragraph should etm- 
elude the topic. 

Sentences within a paragraph sh'iul.i

Why publish an article on 
Righteousness by Faith? Better yet. why 
publish a series of studies on 
Righteousness by Faith? An article 
twice the size of this one could be writ- 
and only give in part one of the 
for studying this vital topic. As 

righteousess by faith. 

1) Righteousness by Faith is the cen- 
tral doctrine of the entire Bible. 'There 
is not a point that needs to be dwelt 
upon more earnestly, repeated more 
frequently, or established more in the 
minds of all. (Manuscript 36, E.G. 
White) We can never rightly un- 
derstand ANY doctrine of the Bible un- 
til this central doctrine is rightly un- 
derstood. This doctrine of faith sheds 
precious light upon every truth of the 
Bible. Luther said that the standing or 
falling of the church is determined by 
the clear understanding of righteousness 
by faith. 

2) A closer look reveals that the three 
angels message, righteousness by faith, 
and the gospel {good news) are one. 
Therefore, 'earnestly contend for this 
faith (message) which was once delivered 
unto the saints.' Jude 3. Because the 
gospel, which is righteousness by faith. 
has been lost sight of, it is the special 
task of SDA church to reproclaim it to 

because it IS the major point of 
discussion and division among Ad- 
ventists today. God's special message 
needs to be understood before it can be 


4) An entire New Testament book 
has been written to systematically set 
forth righteousness by faith. This book. 
Romans, has received many great com- 
ments. Luther said, 'This Epistle is in 
truth the chief part of the New 
Testament and the purest gospel. It can 
never be read or meditated too much 
and too well.' Ellen White wrote, 'With 
great clearness and power the apostle 
(Paul) presented the doctrine of 
justification by Faith in Christ. For the 
Epistle to the church at Rome, every 
Christian has reason to thank God." 

5) This doctrine is important 
because it is a message of love, peace, 
and assurance. It reveals the mystery of 
God's love to a sinful world. It tells a 
person how to be right with God and be 
assured of that rightness. It gives to the 
believer who is right with God the 
assurance that if Jesus should come 
today he'd be ready today! 

This article was not intended to be a 
systematic study of righteousness by 
faith but the real purpose is to inspire 
and awaken interest in this most im- 
portant subject. 

Rick Frazier 

There are times in the busy rat race 
of existence that one has to take time to 
stop... take a deep breath and look 
around. Trees stretching bravely to the 
unknown skies, are encouraged on by 
the nodding flowers. Birds tuning up 
for the next love song are inspired by the 
life-givmg rays of the sun. Morning 
comes upon this sin-darkened planet as 
Mother earth is touched by the Father's 

My mind turns back to the days 
when the morning of my life came alive. 
The essence of heavenly dew drops 
melted the heart of this man of sin It 
was the summer of "74. 

One day we took off to Panama City. 
Florida, some 600 miles away. We wan- 
ted to spend some time at the beach, 
and though we had a beach a few miles 
from home, we crused the long streach 
to Florida. After finding a room in the 
Howard Johnson's, my step-sister and 1 
set out to explore the sunset-painted 
beach. The beauty was so refreshing to 
our newborn faith! Our eyes and hearts 
could not contain the Master's joy! 

Then a young man came along and 
began talking lO my step-sister. A I 
joined them, the conversation changed 
moods... gently, the Spirit gave op- 
portunity that we might share the joy 
that swelled up within us. Our new 
friend. 28 year old Paul Taylor, had 
recently divorced his wife. Life was 
nothing but an endless struggle to sur- 
vive... nothing but darkness. ..empty 

With this life sketch in mind, I began 
to share Jesus with Paul. I could relate 
so well to Paul's desire to die. I had 
tradged the same path before him, yet 
Someone had found me and had given 
me the light and life of morning. He 
had changed my attitude and give me 
direction. 1 longed for Paul to know 
what living really meant and to 
recognize the Giver of Life. Soon we 
parted, leaving return addresses should 

we need future contact. 

Within the next eight months, we 
prayed often for Paul though I never 
contacted him. During those long mon- 
ths, Paul did alot of thinking. God drew 
him into His arms of love and then in- 
troduced Paul to His Son. Jesus, One 
night not long after this. Paul call my 
home. He had met Jesus! His joy 
greatly encouraged my family! 

While Paul had been getting his head 
together, I had slipped deeply away and 
had just about lost mine, I was out in 
California at the time Paul had called so 
it wasn't until I got home after eight 
months of singing the wrong tune that I 
learned of Paul's conversion. I went to 
visit him and what a different scene! 
The stoiy was the same, but the teller 
was different. This time, Paul shared 
with me how Christ had been so good 
and of the beauty of life! This music 
gave food to my starving soul and once 
again morninp began to break for me. 
Since that time. Jesus and I have 
reached a mutual agreement' We are 
'friends'! What a great way to*ive! 

A couple of weeks before school 
began, I talked again with Paul. He 
called back to my mind our visit of a few- 
months ago. Though I was walking 
myself in darkness. I had shaied the 
light of the Sabbath with him. This had 
sparked His search for truth, leading he 
and his girifriend to the pool of living 
water. Just one week after their bap- 
tism, they were married in a little SDA 
Church. From one tiny seed sown, two 
flowers have grown. 

In Desire of Ages we find. 'All who 
are consecrated to God will be channels 
of light. God makes them His agents to 
communicate to others the riches of His 
grace. His promise is. T will make them 
and the places round about My hill a 
blessing; and I will cause the shower to 
come down in his season; there will be 
showers of blessing.' Ezek. 34:26' DA

the voters become better acquainted 
with each candidate and his position. 

The programs will all be recorded

to another candidates' remarks. 

High Goal Set 

For Ingathering 

'30,000 in 30 days -■ that's the motto 
of the Collegedale Church for this year's 
Ingathering program. This is about 
'3,000 more than last year, and ac- 
cording to Dr. J A Sines, Lay Activities 
leader, this corresponds to about '25 per 

Dr. Sines said that several activities 
have'been planned to help the church 
members reach their goals. Singing 
bands will be going door-to-door. A let- 
ter-writing campaign is underway and 
business friends are being contacted. 

However, the major thrust of the 
campaign will be on Oct. 5. This is the 
scheduled Field Day for Southern 
Missionary College and the Collegedale 
Academy. Members of the two student 
bodies will be excused from classes to 

solicit Ingathering funds from ihe 

A sign has been erected in front of 
the P E Center indicating the number 
of days left in the campaign, and the 
amount of money needed to reach the 
goal. This is only an indicator of where 
the campaign is supposed to be. not 
necessarily an actual dollar figure. 

Dr. Sines added that plans for next 
year's program have already been 
discussed. A systematic budgeting plan 
is being considered, in which each mem- 
ber will be urged to give a specified 
amount each month instead of waiting 
for the final big push a the end of the 
year. This would still allow for 
solicitation of business contacts, and the 
students' Field Day. 

"Participation is important", states 
Dr. Sines. "If everyone does his part.

SOLINET is a computer net\vork 
^^ connected by terminals to be installed at 
^|a McKee Library by January. A charter 
^^ member since SOLINET's 

(Southeastern Library Network) birth in 
1973. McKee Library is now financially 
adle to obtain its own terminal. 

The primary feature of SOLINET is 
to short cut the cataloging of books. All 
Library of Congress book cards are 
pVocessed into the central computer ter- 
minal in Columbus, Ohio. The librarian 

inquires about a specific book and the 
book entry (which becomes the catalog 
card) is flashed on the screen. The 
librarian inputs his individual 
requirements through SOLINET con- 
cerning his library's cataloging needs. 

That information is recorded on an 
individualized set of cards and sent to 
him within two weeks. This cuts labor, 
money, and space for processing new 
books. And the books are available to 
library users within three to four weeks 

SOLINET can help locate books not 
available in S M C 's library. Advanced 
students on a professor's approval and 
any faculty may use the special library 
inter-loan service. The S M C librarian 
will try to obtain a needed book from a 
library nearby such as U T C or county 
libraries. Now with SOLINET the

Don Dick Returns To Head 
Communication Department 


Jtrrv D. Lien 

Yes, Virginia, there is a Dr. Donald 
Dick once again heading the Com- 
munication Department of S M C. No 
Doppelganger or Ruritanian substitute, 
the man is the genuine article, contrary 
to what rumor or the Press had to say 
during the past months. 

Reports that Dr. Dick had left the 
college to become producer of the 
television program, Faith for Today, 
without thought of returning were like 
those other reports describing Mark 
Twain's premature death. All were 
"i^reatiy exaggerated." 

^ 'The only thing that I can think of 
which might explain the cause of the 
rumors and the announcement in the 
Review is that the Public Relations 
Department at Faith for Today issued a 
press release stating that I was producer 
ol the program and formerly of S M C. 
The statement failed to mention that I 
was in a temporary position. The 
Review seems to have picked up the 
release somewhere along the line and 
then printed it," explained Dr. Dick. 

He further commented that his ex- 
periences at the broadcasting center in 
Thousand Oaks, California, from which 
Faith for Today originates, were a part 
of his sabbatical program. 

A sabbatical is a leave granted to a 
faculty member who has served the 
school for a period of six years since last 
receiving financial assistance for study. 
The faculty member must also hold a 
terminal degree. The sabbatical leave is 
intended to professionally benefit the 

casting network. However, thai didn't 
work out, so 1 contacted the Faith for 
Today people and told them of my in- 
terest in film production. I asked to 
come out to the Center to work for 
several months." the professor stated. 

Dr. Dick and his family hoped at the 
end of two months in Thousand Oaks to 
go to England where he wished to study 
English broadcasting, possibly with the 

BBC. Mrs. Dick would finish a Master 
of Arts program n English, ap- 
propriately enough in the natal land of 
that branch of the humanities. This all 
proved to be wishful thinking and their 
plans did not come to fruition, giving 
them, perhaps, a fuller appreciation for 
Robert Burns. Mrs. Dick did earn her 
MA while in California, however. 

Faith for Today was losing its 
producer at the time. During the lirst 
week of August, Dr. Dick was asked to 
become the production assistant. By the 
end of the week and in the besI Horatio 
Alger tradition, he was asked to become 
the producer. So. from the middle of 
August 1975 to the middle of July 1976. 
he was in the position of producer for 
Faith for Today. 

"So far, of the programs I was in- 
volved in producing, one has been 
televised," said Dick. "The new season 
will start in October. Five of the firsl 
nine programs of the season were 
produced by me. The other four will be 
re-runs from previous seasons. Four of 
the next nine, I was also involved with. I 
also directed one program in the second 

Dick's work at the Center in 
Thousand Oaks has proven to be 
beneficial to his professional abilities. 
About one-half of the production work 
was with scripts. He states that he now 
knows what is expected of professional 
union and non-union writers and, of 
course, in the process he found out a 
great deal about film production. 





t-hand from the 
point of view of a practitioner. 

"The Faith program endeavoi-s lo^ct 
its secular audience involved with the 
storyline first of all. and then to work in 
the religious aspect. Faith's audience 
would probably not sit down in front of 
the TV, or anywhere else, for that mat- 
ter, and listen to a preacher deliver a 
sermon, or even discuss religion for a 
full half hour. The two programs have 
different methods for a different audien- 
ce appeal, but a common goal. Both 
methods. 1 believe are valid, and cer- 
tainly the goal is the highest to be 
desired," concluded Donald Dick. 

Concerning his experience Dr. Dick 
said, "I had always wondered what it 
would feel like to be off campus, having 
spent most of my life in a school en- 
vironment. 1 got an invaluable op- 
portunity to see how the Center is struc- 

Almost since its beginning, there has 
been some question as to the future of 
Faith for Today. Currently, a com- 
mittee on the General Conference level 
is studying the question with one 
meeting having been held so far. Ten- 
tatively, though, the program will stay 
with its present format of drama. 

"You see. the purpose of Faith for 
Today is to reach secular man on a 
public service level. The program 
doesn't generally purchase time. It is 
designed for an audience with no. or 
very little, religious background. It Is 
Written, on the other hand, is intended 
for a viewing audience that has a grasp 
of religious concepts."

Introducing Foreigr 

Many students are attracted to 
Southern Missionary College for 
something that makes it very special. 
among many other things: the Student 
Missionary program. 
They look forward to a part of the 
college which would not only help them 
in preparing for the work that God has 
assigned -"to preach the gospel unto all 
the nations ', but would grant them the 
opportunity as student Missionaries to 
go and carry out this order. 
Many will never be able to enjoy this ex- 
perience, but the Lord has provided 
everyone with the opportunity of

What is it like to be a student 
misssionary in Japan? There are many 
things; learning new customs and a new 
language, meeting new people. But 
being a student missionary is a great 
challenge, as it states so well in Matthew 
28:19. "Go ye therefore and teach all 
nations." As last year's Student 
Missionaries to Japan, we were trying to 
fill the gospel commission. 

Upon arriving in Japan, we were no 
longer students, but teachers. One of 
the reasons for being there was to teach 
English, and that was interesting. But 
sometimes it was frustrating trying to 
get the students to have the right 
pronunciation and intonation. There 
were also times when they would get 
their words mixed up. and come up with 
something like, "The United States is a 
very big company." 

The greatest challenge for us was 
teaching the word of God. Each of us 
can still remember the first Bible class

There have been occasions when we 
can remember a student asking us a 
question which we'd never heard before. 
Suddenly the Holy Spirit would speak 
through us, and the answer would fliiw 
out with the student understanding

confronted with obstacles almost too bit; 
to overcome but Christ was always there 
to give us a helping hand when we 
needed Him.

all about. Let us look at a few of the passages which speak of the claims 
that it makes for itself.

Revelation 13:8 in the King James 
reads "the lamb slain from the foundation 
of the world, ' ' but newer versions say 
thai the believer 's name has been written 
in the book of life ' from the foundation of

predestination. Is this right? Ellen G. 
White supports the King James.

who dwell on the earth will worship him. 
everyone whose name has not been writ- 
ten from the foundation of the world in 
the book of life of the lamb who has 
been slain." The phrase 'from... .world' 
can modify either 'written' as in the 
newer versions or 'slain' as in the KJV. 
However, it is almost certain that it 
modifies "written" on account of the 
parallel in REV. 1 7:8 - "And those who 
dwell on the earth will wonder, whose 
name has not been written in the book 
of life from the foundation of the 
world...." It is this verse which is the 
reason for the change. Evidently, John 
having identified the book of life as 
belonging to the slain lamb in 13:8. it 
was not necessary to repeat this in 1 7:8. 
All later versionsdisagree with the KJV. 

These two verses do not imply that 
individuals are predestined to be saved 
or lost. In the first place, "from the 
foundation of the world" may mean 
"ever since the world began" or. in other 
words, all the names that have been en- 
tered in the book all down through 
history. Moreover, names can be erased 
from the book of life (Revelation 3:5). so 
that even those "predestined" to be saved 

Finally, the Biblical concept of I 
predestination is that God has I 
predestined all who choose Chrisi

mittee will make its recommendations 
to the city and board. 

Dr, Delmar Lovejoy, Dr. Ray Hef- 
ferlin, and Dr. Don Dick made reports 
to the board concerning their recently 
concluded sabbaticals. 

Study leaves were given to Jerry 
Gladson (1977-1978 school year); Alice 
Calkins (1977-1978 school year); 
Helmut Ott (summer of 1977); Dr. 
Gerald Colvin (summer of 1977); 
Lorenzo Grant (summer of 1977) and 
Mrs. Loranne Grace (summer of 1977). 
The SMC board also voted summer 
service leaves to Dr. Douglas Bennett, 
Elder Frank Holbrook and Elder R.E. 

A ministerial student scholarship 
program at Florida Hospital was taken 
into consideration and approved. The 
program involves the hospital's taking 
on two of SMC's pre-graduate theo- 
logy majors each summer. These men 
will work as chaplain interns. They 
will serve the hospital and its two 
satellite institutions in Apopka and 
Allamonte Springs. The two men will 
serve for twelve weeks with the pro- 
posed renumeration being approx- 
imately $1,000 each. SMC has voted 
$200 in matching a portion of this total 
for each young man. 

The Southern Missionary College 
Board voted on September 27 to form a 
committee to investigate the hiring of 
a commercial fund raising organiza- 
tion. The fund raisers would aid in the 
preliminary monetary aspects for the 
construction of the Fine Arts Center. 
In a previous session, the board had

to be consulted to assess the school's 
computer needs and to recommend the 
type of computer required. 

The Business Department reported 
to the board with a preliminary plan 
for departmental expansion sometime 
in the near future.

Building Costs studied 

The Southern Missionary College 
Board of Trustees and the Community 
Auxilliary Board were presented with 
a study of the comparative building 
costs of the Library, Home Economics 
building, and the Nursing Education 
building September 26 and 27. 

According to Elder R.C. Mills, 
Business Director of Southern Mis- 
sionary College, it cost S14.98 per 
square foot to build the Library in 
1970. $15.56 per square foot for the 
Home Economics building in 1971 , and 

in 1975 the cost spiraled to $34.23 per 
square foot for the new Nursing 

Mills attributed the high cost of the 
Nursing building to special materials 
required to meet new fire regulations 
and a different type of construction. 

Talge, however, is costing only 
$21.31 per square foot, says Mills, 
making the increase of building ex- 
penses exactly ten per cent in the last 
ten years (compared to the cost of 
Thatcher Hall). 

Plans were also approved to pro- 
ceed with the new Fine Arts building 
as funds are available.

Dr. Melvin Campbell, Dean of Stu-

into replacing the white, mold furni- 
ture in the Student Lounge. 

In referring to the sterile atmos- 
phere, Dean Campbell said, "It just 
doesn't say. 'Come on in and sit down. ' 
The students use that area just as a 
place to walk through to get to another 
section of the building. They should 
be able to feel like sitting down and 
visiting or just relaxing." 

The committee is compromised of

bers who will work with an interior 
designer in trying to improve the 

When asked from where the fund- 
ing of the project would come. Dean 
Campbell said that the present furni- 
ture would be sold and this would 
cover some of the expense. Also, it 
was being considered that money from 
School Appropriations might be used. 
But as it is now, the project is still in 
the planning stages and hopefully by 
second semester the lounge will have 
taken on a new look.

Owens began the show introducing 
"The Gentleman's Agreement" - a 
man-tailored look for women with a 
feminine touch added. The outfits 
were co-ordinated in one color, 
basically, accented with scarves - the 
biggest fashion accessory for the fall 
and winter of 76-77. 

For the dress look, hats are in style 
for day and night. Again this year will 
be seen the matching stockings to the 
outfit. "And girls", spoke Jean, 
"don't get rid of those black dresses 
you thought you wouldn't use this year; 
black will be very important this fall 
and winter in fashion". Bone-colored 
shoes - but not white - will be "in" this 

fall and winter. For that needed touch 
in fashion look, patent will be used all 
winter long, looking great on boots, 
which are still "in" with fashion. 

Sandals? Yes! Says Owens, "As 
long as you don't get your toes out in 
the snow, you're okay." The 'after- 
five" look is very feminine and soft; 
this year's addition being the dress 

For the sport-look, Owens intro- 
duced "Hillbilly tubbed and scrubbed 
jeans", pre-washed jeans folded up 
just below the knee. Checks on jackets 
will be a fashioD trend. Owens

$13,000 Track Considered 

DJames Boyd 

A proposal for the installation of a 
new jogging track was presented to the 
school board for consideration last 

According to Coach Bud Moon of 
the Physical Education Department, 
the new track would consist of a 
rubber-asphalt compound with both an 
inner and outer curb. 

The new track surface will enhance 
better health in that it will cushion the 
joints of the feet and legs. 

The plan for financing the track 
calls for the donation of funds by both 
the faculty and students. The overall 
cost of the track will be between 
$13,000 and $14,000. 

Coach Moon is very enthusiastic 
about the prospect of getting a new 
track but he reports that the only way 
the plan will work will be to have the

Working students are not neces-

Student Finance, many students do 
not fully understand what work-study 
is, and how it works. 

The CWSP is federally funded, 
which means that 80% of the students 
wage is provided by the government, 
and the remaining 20% by the school. 
This enables the college to create more 

To qualify for CWSP. a student 
must take a minimum of eight semes-

and students who are already under 
the CWSP must reapply every year.

I believe that one of the blessings of God to our Institutionhas been providing 
a means of information as is the Southern Accent. However, many ideas could 
be brought to light through articles that will encourage a sound reasoning in our 
student body, and, of course, in our faculty. 

1 believe that what Mrs. White says in her book Education; the fact that part 
ofthe purpose oftrue education is to make the students 'thinkers' and not mere 
'reflectors ofthe thoughts of others' can be applied in this case. I don't think s 
refers to emphasizing conflict between faculty and student body -- although this 
is mostly not applicable in our environment ■- but to enjoy the benefits that result 
from the sound analysis of different points of view that can offer new ideas to the 
directors of our college and the church in general. 

The Southern Accent, as a result of a correct orientation can become an echo 
of those ideas that exist in the mind of many of our students.

We the staff of the Southern 
Accent recognize our responsibility to 
serve God through our service to the 
students, faculty and community of 
Southern Missionary College. 

Our purpose is to promote aca- 
demic, social, and spiritual awareness. 
Every article is to be full of practical, 
elevating, and ennobling thoughts 
--which will give the reader help, light, 
and strength. Every sentence written 
should mean something definite, 
should be true, sincere. Not a scratch 
ofthe pen should be made in order to 
become popular or to vindicate that 
which God condemns.

President Ford Replies To • 
Christians' Questions 

Richard S. Brannon, Special Assis- 
) the President and a Southern 
Baptist Minister, spoke to the Biennial 
Jledical-Dental Congress, sponsored 
my the Southern Union of Seventh-day 
ftdventists on September 18. 

vas scheduled to speak Satur- 
Jay night, in Gatlinburg, Tenn., on 
Rational Health Insurance and Mal- 
; Problems, but the content of 
s actual speech was far different. 

His speech centered on a meeting 
which took place in the Oval Office at 
the White House on September 16, 
1976. Four persons, representing or- 
ganizations identified with American 
evangelical Christianity, were granted 
a 15 minute interview to discuss the 
general concerns of evangelical Christ- 
ians. The meetings lasted one hour 
and 15 minutes. 

14 questions were submitted in 
which President Ford answered and 
agreed to give his answers in writing. 
Below are some of those questions and 
selected answers from the total dis- 

Q. Mr. President, Christians believe 
that a personal commitment to Jesus 
Christ has to be an integral part in 
their faith. In the light of that, can you 
tfll us what Jesus Christ means to you, 
and have you dedicated your life to 

I have said on several 
fcvhen asked, that I have 
go the Christian faith and I have a rela- 
ionship with Jesus Christ through my 
lEhurch and through my daily life. My 
Baith goes back to my upbringing by 
py parents when I was very young. It 
s been reinforced in my lifetime by a 
^umber of experiences that I have had. 
neans the dedication to His life 
His principles and I seek to 
follow in my own public, as well as 
private life, those principles... Both my 
wife, Betty, and myself read excerpts 
from the Bible on a daily basis... 

When decisions have to be made 
by me in the Oval Office, I don't hesi- 

tate to ask for guidance through 
prayer. Prayer is very important to 
me. From Proverbs, I have a favorite 
verse which I express daily, and have 
for a good many years. It is a daily 
source of strength for me: "Trust in 
the Lord with all thine heart; lean not 
unto thine own understanding; in all 
ways acknowledge Him and He will 
direct thy paths." 

Q: In your view, is there any threat to 
religious liberty by big government 
and expanding government regula- 

A: 1 am sympathetic with most 
Americans who are fearful that gov- 
ernment can become so large and we 
can be burdened with so many regula- 
tions that our individual liberties may 
be taken from us little by little. As 
long as I am President. I would resist 
government bureaucracies intruding 
into the free religious institutions of 
America. ..This question also suggests 
the reaffirmation of something that I 
believe in very strongly, that there 
should be a wall of separation between 
church and state. Government should 
not be allowed to control any of our 
religious institutions. 

I have a long standing commitment 
to diversity in American education. 
We need our non-pubhc schools. I also 

have a long standing cumniiimeni ic 
limited government, freedom of reli- 
gion, and the separation of church and 

Q: How does a person's private moral 
conduct affect his ability to serve in 
^public office? 

lA: Public officials have a special re- 
sponsibility to set a good example for 
[others to follow, in both their private 
land public conduct.. .Jesus said, "Un- 
to whomsoever much is given, of hira 
shall much be required." Personal in- 
tegrity is not too much to ask of public 
servants. We should accept nothing 
less. As a Christian. 1 strive to live up 
to the moral code as set forth in the 
Ten Commandments and in the teach- 
lings of Jesus. 

\Q: Do you propose any presidential 
initiatives on prayer and Bible reading 
'in public schools? 

A: I believe that prayer in public 
schools should be voluntary. It is 
difficult for me to see how religious 
exercises can be a requirement in 
public schools, given our constitutional 
requirement of separation of church 

pally the responsiblity of church and 
home. I do not believe that public 
education should show any hostility 
toward religion, and neither should it 
inhibit voluntary participation, if it 
does not interfere with the educational 

As long as this is the case, 1 do not 

Q: Some political observers feel that 
for the first time in over a decade 
religion has become an issue in a 
Presidential campaign. How do you 
feel about this emphasis on the reli- 
gious views of candidates? 

4: I believe a candidate's personal 
religion is a proper concern for voters 
when they are choosing their Presi- 
dent. However, I do not believe that 
it is proper for any political figure to 
deliberately exploit religion for his or 
her political advantage. 

If I am asked about my beliefs, I 
will respond for I am proud of the con- 
victions I hold.

□Carmen Miranda 

Tarsee Li, with his very typical 
Japanese features, surprises everyone 
who asks him where he's from, when 
he answers, "I'm from Brazil." 

Tarsee's parents are from Shang 
Hai, Japan. From there they went to 
live in Sao Paolo, Brazil in 1950 - and 
^"ght years later Tarsee was bom. 

One of the things Tarsee vividly 
recalls about Brazil is the climate. 
Right now, in the Southern Hemi- 
sphere, spring is beginning. The 
Northern section of Brazil is very 
^arm, a tropical jungle with copious 
rain seasons. 

As a child Tarsee attended a 
private school. There aren't very 
many public schools in Brazil. Tarsee 
explains, most are private institu- 
tions. Classes began for him in Feb- 
"^ary, with a month's vacation in July, 

Foreign Students 

and on until November. His summer 
free time was partly occupied with the 
colorful festivals celebrated from June 
to July known as St. John's Day, St. 
Peter's Day, and many others. Or 
sometimes he would play soccer, the 
most popular sport in Brazil. 

The official language of Sao Paolo 
is Portuguese - "it's very similar to 
Spanish, "says Tarsee. He knows no 
Japanese, except maybe "Good morn- 
ing", but he speaks English very well. 

Tarsee came to the United States in 
1971 to stay with some relatives - 
against his will. However, he says that 
he can now see that it was God work- 

ing in his life. One half year later he 
went to New York City where, at age 
15, he met Jesus Christ. He was able 
to attend Blue Mountain Academy in 

At Academy. Tarsee was given a 
list of all SDA Colleges in America. 
After comparing costs, surroundings 
and spiritual atmospheres among the 
colleges, and after much prayer, he 
decided to attend SMC. 

This is Tarsee's first year as a 
Theology Major. He has found that 
SMC has that spiritual atmosphere of 
which his friends told him, and has 
met many Christian friends here. 

In Brazil, Tarsee knew nothing 
about Seventh-day Adventists, His 
deceased mother and his father never 
had contact with them; he trusts that 
God will reveal Himself to his family 
and they will accept Him, From what 
he has read, he has discovered that 
many people are joining the church in 
Brazil, and the gospel work is advan- 

Tarsee has many experiences with 
his Personal Saviour Uiat he would 
enjoy sharing with you, and he is in- 
terested in hearing what Jesus Christ 
has done in your life. As he looks back 
on how God has led him. Proverbs 
3:5,6 has grown to mean a lot to him: 
"Trust in the Lord with all thme heart, 
and lean not unto thine own under- 
standing, in all thy ways acknowledge 
Him, and He shall direct thy paths." 
He encourages you to remember 
and trust in this promise.

forec in fom of cutting or prying. (Photo by Sharo,, Webnter) 


Receives Jaws of Life 

This amount was to be matched by the 
government in full payment of the 
piece of the equipment. Not only did 
the men of Tri-Community raise their 
goal, but they went on to raise $8,000. 
The additional funds will go to the 
purchase of an apparatus to mount the 
tool on. 

The fire department is training 
men to specialize with the "Jaws", 
and is hoping to have them in service 
within one week. Mr. Parker says 
contributions are still appreciated. 
Send money to "Jaws of Life" 

Tri-Community Fire Department 
has received "Jaws of Life" as a result 
of their fund raising campaign. The 
"Jaws of Life" is a rescue tool made 
by the Hurst Corporation. This tool 
produces 12,000 pounds of extricating 
force which comes in the form of cut- 
ting or prying. "Jaws" has earned it's 
respect by saving many lives with 
quick, safe, reliable extrication.

"I Don't Trust Vou"

A group of instructors sat in a circle 
discussing some projected changes in 
the curriculum. Some, of the discus- 
sion centered on values. 

Rather abruptly one of the new 
young instructors pointed across the 
room at me and said, "For instance, 1 
can't trust Mrs. Davidson." 

1 was shocked. Why that reaction? 
Didn't she know that she could trust 
me? ! believed that I was completely 
honest and dependable. I always kept

What Doth God 
Require of Thee? 

To Walk Humbly With Thy God." 
Micah 6; 8 

The spirit of these times is against 
Rumility. Saint Augustine when asked 
i the first grace of a Christian 
Eaid, "Humility." When asked what 
J the second grace of a Christian said, 
|Humility." And the third great 
: a Christian, he said, "Humil- 

Humility is almost a lost character- 
□ these days of pride, selfishness 
Ind arrogance. Many people are 
feroud of their supposed humility. 

How do we obtain humility? The 
Jvay to obtain humility is to come face 
{o face with the mighty Son of God. 
/Vhen this takes place we will be kept 
fiumble. Humility as a sovereign 
is the result of Christianity 
founded by the Christ. The man who 
come to the Blessed Christ is 
Jelf-centered. And the man or woman 
, all wrapped up in themself 

makes a very small package. The 
higher a man is in grace the humbler 
he is in his own estimation. 

Permit me to share with you a 
story that illustrates true humility. 
Across the ocean in Europe the piano 
of the famous Beethoven is shown to 
guests who wish to see it. It is related 
that an American girl on viewing the 
instrument rushed past the guard and 
sat down and played Beethoven's 
"Moonlight Sonata." When she had 
finished she said to the stem faced 
guard. "I suppose many great music- 
ians visit here," "Yes," said the 
guard, "Paderewski was here a while 
back." Anxiously the girl asked, "Did 
he play the piano?" The reply was, 
"His friends urged him to play but he 
refused. He shook his head and said, 
'1 am not worthy.' " That is true 

Let us daily "Walk humbly with 
our God. He asks no more and we can 
do no less.

be either. Day by day we must 
prepare ourselves for this special time. 

This daily preparation isn't some- 
thing that I must do - it is something 
that I want to do because of the love- 
relationship between Jesus and 
myself. To me there can be no other 
valid reason for my experience. 

Encompassed with blessing, fel- 
lowship, and promise, the Sabbath 
becomes a part of my life. Without it 
my life could never be complete 
because the special closeness between 
God and myself is so intimate on this 

it offers the season of drawing 
nearer to Jesus because all other 
thoughts, plans and activities are 
stored on the preparation day. God

the wonders of creation and the 
marvels of redemption which reveal 
His everlasting love for me.

then the Sabbath holds meaning for

Mission :oqS%v 


"Philosophers," wrote Karl Marx, 
"Have only interpreted the world 
differently: the point is. however, to 
change it." 

Both Communism and Christianity are 
committed to the talk of changing the 
world through persuasion and person- 
al involvement, beyond this however, 
they have little in common. 

In order to accomplish this mission 
Jesus sought to enlist those who could 
bear personal witness of their involve- 
ment with Him. The revealing truth in 
these choices is seen in the rather or- 
dinary people whom Jesus chose. 
Although "unlearned and ignorant" 
according to some standards, they 
were teachable, honest, and willing to 
confess their needs, and to be molded 
into a new image. The genius of 
Christ's strategy in making possible 
what appeared to be an impossible 
mission was the quality not the quan- 
tity of those selected to carry on His 

The world can be transformed only 
by transformed people who have 
allowed themselves to be molded by 
the Master. A true witness is one who 
shares what he has experienced. The 
word 'witness' comes from the Greek 
word which also means martyr, indic- 

ating one who has borne witness even 
by death. Jesus' popularity with the 
masses was so great that He could 
have had the following of thousands, 
but without strong followers to teach, 
lead, and guide, the masses would 
have scattered following His death. 

Jesus was interested in the multi- 
tudes but His plan was to reach them 
by training witnesses who would go 
forth into the world as salt and light. 
His training program was incredibly 
simple but significantly effective. He 
allowed the followers to associate with 
Him, and to learn by doing and 
observing. The effectiveness of 
this plan was indicated by Paul in 
Colossians 1:5-6 "the gospel which is 
come unto you, as it is in all the 

Today, as in the beginning of the 
Christian church, our Lord is seeking 
individual witnesses whom He can 
train, fill with His spirit and send into

the Lord" (Isaiah 43:10). "Ye have 
not chosen me. but I have chosen you, 
and ordained you that you should go 
and bring forth fruit." (John 15:16). 
Everyone is bom into the Kingdom of 
God to be a witness. The work of God 
will be finished by ordinary Christian 
members bearing witness through the

Righfeousness by Faith WOW! What a God 

Part 2- Righteousness 

DMichael Kress 

"The fundamental idea of right- 
eousness is that of strict adherence to 
the law." Systematic Theology; Berk- 
hof, p. 74. This may sound legalistic, 
but we must keep in mind that God is 
just, right, and holy. "The law re- 
quires righteousness, a righteous life, 
a perfect character..." Therefore, 
"righteousness is obedience to the 
law. The law demands righteous- 
ness,.." Desire of Ages 162. Selected 
Messages. Vol. 1. 367. 

"God has a law, and it is the great 
standard of righteousness." Testimo- 
nies to Ministers, p. 448. To see the 
law of God in its length, breadth, 
height, and depth is to see the true 
standard of righteousness. David 
wrote, "but thy commandment is ex- 
ceeding broad. ..for all thy command- 
ments are righteousness." Psalm 119: 
96,172. "The standard of righteous- 
ness is exceeding broad, prohibiting 
every evil thing." Bible Commentary'. 
Volume 7. page 95\. "The law of God 
is holy as He is holy, as peri'ect as He 
is perfect. It presents to men the 
righteousness of God." Mount of 
Blessings, page 54. 

The sermon of the mount reveals 
that righteousness is exceedingly 
broad in its requirements. An impure 
thought is adultery, while the person 
who looks at his brother with cold cri- 
tical eyes is a murderer. Righteous- 

u^.. must exceed mere acts of love. It 
is more than just refraining from sin. 
The law reaches to the thoughts, 
feelings, desires, and designs of the 
mind. Righteousness is perfect con- 
formity to the law of God. "...thelaw 
requires that the soul itself be pure 
and the mind holy, that the thoughts 
and feelings may be in accordance 
with the standard of love and right- 
eousness." 5e/ecre(f Messages. Vol. 1 
p. 211. Perfect righteousness, perfect 
obedience is the fulfillment of God's 
infinite law. 

Righteousness is the reproduction 
of the character of Christ. The scrip- 
tures declare that Christ "...knew no 
sin...hadnosin...didnosin." U Conn- 
thians 5:21, / John 3:5, / Peter 2:22. 
The character of Christ was "without 
blemish and without spot." / Peter 

Righteousness is a duplication of 
the sinless character of Christ. Any- 
thing less is not righteousness, but 

Righteousness is sinlessness.

righteousness is life and in the 
pathway thereof is no death."

what constitutes sin and of what con-

Mike and Don got out of the car to 
start their task of conducting a re- 
ligious survey from door to door. 
T^ere seemed to be a little apprehen- 
siveness mixed in with anxiety on their 
part in regards to exactly what they 
were to do and what would happen. 
They had never given a survey like this 
before and the area in which they were 
working was totally new to them. 

With their goal in mind and a 
prayer on their hearts, they walked 
down the street to their first home. 
As they looked, they could see a lady 
sitting in a rocking chair with a yellow 
card in her hand. As the two young 
men looked on, Mike said to Don, "It 
sure looks like that's one of the Bible 
course enrollment cards that we have 
to give to the people." 

The cards they had were identical 
to her's, except that their's had a label 
with their own address on it instead of 
the conference address. 

Don said, "Yes, it sure looks like 
that, but how could she have received 
one of our cards? There's no way! 
No one has come through this neigh- 
borhood yet. We are the first Advent- 
isttocome this way in years. Besides, 
there are only half a dozen SDA's that 
live in this whole community, and I'm 

sure that they haven't been leai 
any Bible course enrollment 
anywhere around here. 

As they approached the s 
Mike was so curious about the _ 
which she held in her hand that" 
couldn't help but ask her where 
had gotten it, even before he k 
duced himself. 

She stated that it was laying in 
yard and she picked it up to read 
She mentioned that she had 
owned a Bible before, but would 
like to own one and begin studying 
Since the card offered a free Bil 
and studies to go along with it, j 
thought that she might mail it in. 

They offered to bring a Bible n 
studies to her personally in a couple 
days. She happily consented and m 
very excited to receive the studies ai 
the Bible. 

The thing which I realized t 
this true story is that God is truly J 
work in this world and what a 
to see the Holy Spirit working throaj 
his people on this earth and t 
blessings that are being poured oul, 
see souls hungering for the truth, i 
to have the privilege of working (J 
Christ and for people is a thing si 
great that it is almost impossible!

A. Because He claims to be God which makes Him either the greatest lunatic or 
exactly what He claims to be, Faith is necessary in all beliefs but I would like to 
suggest that it takes more faith to believe Jesus who was perfect in every way and who 
has made a greater impact on more people than all the other notable figures on earth 

B. Because of the peace and salvation that comes to one who truly trusts in the 
merits of Jesus. 

I. Hdw can I know Him? 

By trusting in Him. 
Studying about Him. 
Talking to Him in prayer. 

Doing things with Him (witnessing, fellowship with believers and unbelievers.). 
(Salvation and getting to know Jesus is the study to be considered in two weeks).

SMC Ingathering 

Goal Surpassed 

D Sharon Webster 

Ingathering Field Day at Southern 
Missionary College October 5 was 
successful in reaching its designated 
goal of $12, 000. 

Last year the total amount reached 
was 510,000 by midnight, but this year 
the $12,000 was reached by 11 :00 
p.m., according to William Taylor. 
public relations director at SMC. 

Approximately 25-30 percent of the 
college students participated, 25 
percent of the students contributed 
cash or their labor ($1 ,355.64), and 

about 150 academy students solicited. 
The Atlanta group left early in the 

morning and arrived bacic to the 

campus around 9:30 p.m. with the 

amount of $1,685.00 

The Collegedale Church goal 

breaks down thus: 

Church total 7.927.14 

Elementary School 600.00 
Academy 1,466.49 

College 12.005.60 

Total 21.999.23 

According to Taylor, this has been 

one of the closest campaigns in a long 

Work on the new access road over 
Hickman Hill to Collegedale has 
progressed to the point that construc- 
tion crews now find it necessary to 
block off the existing road for short 
periods of time in order to continue 
their work. 

City manager Lee Holland, com- 
menting on the closings, stressed that 
the road will be closed for short 
intervals for the safety of the road 
users. "1 realize that these closings 
will be inconvenient to many people, 
but I lie awake at night wondering 
what would happen if one of those 
huge rocks up there got away from a 
bulldozer and hit a car full of people, 
all because I didn't close the road for a 

Fortunately, the road will not be 
closed every day, all day long. 
Flagmen will be posted to direct traftic 
during less dangerous construction 
workdays. Traffic will only be stopped 
for about five minutes while the large 
earth-movers are on the road. The 
crews will work from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 
p.m. to avoid the rush hour traffic. 

Some dynamiting will have to be 
done, and during this operation the 
road will be completely closed. 

While the road is closed, through 
traffic will be routed along Apison Pike 
to Tallant Road and then to Edgmon 
Road on to Lee Highway. Barricades 

will be placed at Four Comers and at 
the railroad intersection on the Col- 
legedale side. However, provision will 
be made to allow traffic to McKee 
Plant ffl, the City Hall complex, and 
the Ezy-Duz-It car wash. 

Plans call for the new road to b6 on 
a level 20 feet below the present road. 
Therefore, when construction reaches 
the point where the present road must 
be dug up, naturally, the road will be 
permanently closed. Then the work 
will progress at a much faster pace, 
with the crews working from sunup to 

Work will continue this winter as 
long as the weather permits, resuming 
in the spring. During this period, the 
gas telephone, water, and television 
companies will relocated their pipes 
and lines along the side of the new 

The money for this project is provided 
by the Collegedale car sticker ordi- 
nance, which has been in effect for 
two years. The ordinance, specifically 
for this purpose, will continue for 8 
more years. The stickers may be 
purchased for $5.00 at Collegedale 
City Hall. They are required only for 
people living or working on College- 

A motorist caught without the 
sticker may be issued a fine. 

Improvements will include: the 
widening of the lanes to 12 feet, with 
six feet banks on each side of the road, 
and railing will be placed along the 
outside lanes. 

Faculty Senate Pose New Bills 

-Jerry Dick Lien 

The Faculty Senate meeting < 
Monday, October 1 1 , voted to cc 
the present policy of a yeariy Career's 
Day. Instead of eliminating several 
class periods as has been the case in 
the past, these days wilt be structured 
along the pattern employed for Weeks 
of Spiritual Emphasis. All classes 
scheduled will meet although in 

The Placement Service headed by 
the Dean of Students, disclosed plans 
to the Senate for a general recruitment 
day on campus. This would involve 
employers in and out of 
denominational work and would allow 
for presentation of displays in the 
Student Center, as well as taking 
applications for specific jobs 
(education, nursing, etc) from 
students entering the job market. The 
first such Recruitment Day should take 
place in February of 1977. 
Free Day was voted to be 

discontinued. The reasons for the 
action are two-fold. First, there are 
fewer class periods per semester at 
SMC than at most other colleges. The 
second reason for the demise is that 
the original purpose of Free Day has 
apparently been forgotten. It was to 
have been a catch-up period for study 
thus easing the rapid pace and 
pressure of the academic life. 
However, many students were not 
using Free Day forthis purpose. This- 
decision of the Senate, as with others, 
requires a two-week waiting period 
during which petirions opposmg it may 
be formulated and presented to the 
Administration before it can become 
school policy. 

The final exam schedule has been 
changed as a result of a Senate vote, 
Examinations will be from December 
13 to 16 instead of the posted calendar 
dates of December 14 to 16. 

A committee composed of Dr. 
Bruce Ashton, Dr. Gerald Colvm, Mrs. 
Ellen GUbert, Dr. Ray Hefferim and 

Dr. William Wohlers with Robert 
Merchant, chairman, presented 
recommendations to the Senate 
concerning short-term student 
suspensions for disciplinary reasons. 
The committee recommended that the 
Judiciary Committee shall have the 
prerogative to temporarily interrupt a 
student's academic program during a 
given semester under the following 
Euidelines: 1. No suspension shall 

2. Quizzes given during the period of 
suspension shall not be made up. 3. 
Major examinations given during the 
suspension shall be made up within 
five school days after the student 
returns to class. Within this latter 
period the exact time of each test shall 
be determined by the teacher 
involved, 4. Homework, papers, and

Art Department Divides 

DSharon Webster 

The Art Department has been 
moving half of the department to the 
Industrial Arts Buildina at SMC. 

Beginning Drawing, Advanced 
Drawing, Studio Essentials, and 
Weaving classes meet in Room 101 
and 102 of the Bindery. Painting and 

Ceramics classes meet in the base- 
of Jones Hall. 

With the Art Department split up, 
it gives more working space for the 
many artists attending SMC, and 
helps out in storage space for all the 
art equipment. 

This is a temporary set-up until the 
Fine Arts Building is completed.

WSMC Feature Aired On NPR

on Tuesday October 12, when a feature 
prepared by Mike Bradley. News 
Director, was broadcast nationwide on 
National Public Radio's "All Things 

Prior to this date National Public 

(Radio called WSMC and asked them to 
prepare a feature on the Third Con- 
gressional race, a fact which points 
to the high regard that the public has 
for WSMC. 

The feature was a part of a larger 
feature which gave an overview of 
Tennessee politics. Pie focus of the 
feature was on the Third Congression- 
al District because it best shows the 
decline of the Republican Party in the 
Deep South. 

Bradley interviewed five people to 
get this feature including the candi- 
dates and Political Science professors. 
Prior to this Bradley attended several 
of the candidates' rallies and had met 

them on a personal basis. 

Bradley's 2'/i.minute feature took 
him over 12 hours to prepare.

The distinct purpose of this "Aca-

Other plans involve a College Bowl 
to participate in the inter-collegiate

Not as much attention is given to 
the cultural aspect of Art as could be 
given. Art shows are planned so that 
the young aspiring artists may have 

opportunity to display their creaHons. 

Cress would like to see a small 
portion of the SA budget used to 
purchase original and significant art- 
work from art students. These works 
would become property of the Student

Ole B. Kristensen, a communica- 
tions instructor, and Larry Mader, a 
student, are working on expanding the 
facilities of the photography lab. The 
lab is located downstairs in Lynn Wood 

Their plan includes tearing down 
the wall between the present photog- 
raphy lab and the one under the stairs. 
The extra room will enable students 
doing work with color film to have their 
own lab. Thus, the problem of safe 
lights being too bright in the black and 
white lab will be eliminated. 

This semester photography stu- 
dents are working on color slides. 

Dr. Kuhlman Discovers 

Physics Formula 

n Jack Kovalski 

Dr. Henrv Kuhlman, one of the 
professors in the Physics Department 
at S M C, has discovered a formula 
for quickly and efficiently figuring the 
correct angle of rays when "Shooting 
the Sun." 

You may say, Huh. . 

■ What it amounts to is simple, 
When the rays of the sun penetrate the 
Earth's atmosphere, they are bent 
downward, which means that the sun 
is lower than it appears to be and 
makes it possible to see the sun after U 
has already set. 

This may not seem much of a 
problem to you, but it has proved to be 
an incredible nuisance to surveyors 
who need to know the exact location of 
the sun when mapping land. They 
have correction tables which they can 

uj... but they are clumsy and 
always exact. What the surveyors 
needed was a formula which could be 
used to instantly figure the correct 
rays of the sun on their calculators. 
Enter:Dr. Kuhlman. 

Dr. Kuhlman's formula for the 
Problem of Refraction is stated that if 
A is the apparent elevation of an 
object, then T, its true elevation 
(corrected just for refraction), can be 
calculated by the following empirical 
formula: T=arccos(1.0002815 - 

(O.OOOOOlAsin A)1.45)x cos Aj. (All 
very elementary as we can plamly 

Kuhlman submitted his formula to 
Sur\'eving and Mapping, a quarterly 
journal put out by the Amencan 
Congress on Surveying and Mapping. 
It was accepted and printed in their

The room adjacent to the lab, 
which is currently being used for

The effective prayer of a rightet 

Carter And 

□ Vinita Wayman 

James Earl Carter, Jr. and Walter F. Mondale, candi- 
dates on the Democratic ticket for the Executive offices, are 
strongly committed to church and state separation, according 
to the September issue of Church and State magazine. 

Carter has stated publicly that he strongly supports 
church and state separation and that this is a basic doctrine 
of his own Baptist faith. 

In a speech in New Jersey, in June, Carter indicated that 
he opposes federal aid to parochial schools and favored the 
"lupreme court's 1960 rulings banning mandatory religious 
pxercises in public schools. 

Senator Mondale, a Presbyterian and son of a Methodist 

inister, opposed the proposal of Senator Dirksen in 1966 to 

liuthorize government sponsored prayer in public schools. 

Mondale also opposes a constitutional amendment denying 

peedom of choice on abortion. 

Carter believes that abortion is an unacceptable solution 
Rid population problems but admits that "it is an irresolvable 
inflict between morality and law." He said, "I think 
Bbortion is wrong and that the Government ought never do 
pnything to encourage abortion. But I do not favor a 
Wnstitutional amendment which would prohibit all abor- 
Carter promises to minimize the need for abortions 
1 federal programs stressing sex education, family 
fclanning, access to birth control information, and better 
Bdoption procedures. 

Concerning another peripheral church-state issue, Carter 
id, in an address in Plains, Georgia, that he believes civil 
feisobedience against unjust governmental actions is war- 
ranted if a person is responding to his conscience and is 
willing to take the legal consequences. 

Jimmy Carter's public Christian commitment brings an 

intense focus on the relevancy of religion in the exercise of 
Presidential powers. Carter professes to be "bom again". 
Would such a profession of faith affect his performance in 

A new birth experience does not guarantee perfect 
political performance. A Christian politician is subject to 
miscalculation as much as any other Christian. And there is 
the danger of confusing one's program with God's will. 

But. claims C. Stanley Lowell from Church and State, a 
born-again Christian will be honest. His faith mandates it. 
There will be no Watergate, no cover-up. Carter "would 
affirm his faith in the voluntary character of religion," says 
Lowell, "he would not weight his appointments toward 
EvangeHcal Christians just because they share his own 
religious profession. ...He would recognize that government 
can best help religion by letting it alone. His only official 
concern with religion would be to assure its free exercise." 

Americans United executive director Andrew Leigh 
Gunn, in a statement to the press after the Democratic 
convention, expressed concern over the religious bloc-voting, 
either for or against Carter, in response to the spurious' 
religious issues that so far have been raised. The only real 
religious issue, maintained Gunn, is the candidates' stand on 
the proper role between church and state. 

A delving into the past, however, has unearthed a very 
'nonspurious' religious issue. Carter, although supportive of 
church-state separation and unwilling to legislate moral 
matters, said in a press conference in 1974 that he thinks a 
"day of rest law" should be on the books. In November 1974 
the Georgia General Assembly passed a Sunday closing law. 
spelling out in great detail the businesses that could remain 
open on a "common day of rest". Governor Carter said that 
the law was a good one. 

D Edward Marcora 

Legend has it that any student able 
to touch a certain old crone oft seen 
wandering our misty campus on 
full-moon nights must be granted one 
perfect date. Have >'ow caught any old 
crone yet? 

After many attempts to secure a 
date, punctuated by frequent 
let-downs, curiousity seizes control. 
What is wrong? Is it procedure? Tact? 
Inexperience? What forces bring 
habitual failure? We seek affection 
among our peers, therefore these 
questions weigh heavily upon us each. 
.Perhaps the answers of 50 girls and 50 
guys gathered in a recent on-campus 
survey may dispell some 
common-thought myths and bring our 
understanding of campus social life 
into clearer focus. 

Have you dated anyone this 
semester ? revealed that, of the guys 
interviewed, 1 out of every 5 had not 
dated. Girls, this means that there's 
still a chance, and it looks like you 
need it, because the numbers told me 
1 out of every 3 girls had not even 
dated I 

How didyou get your date? 
brought rather startling and 
disappointing results: 1/2 of the.giris 
had their first date this semester with 
someone they had met elsewhere. But 
to prove that fate is still a determining 
factor, 1/3 of girls' dates were 
arranged as the result of accidental 
meetings. Friends are important, 
girls, because 12% of you were 
introduced to your first date by a 

Of the guys, 1/6 introduced 
themselves, another 1/6 met 
accidentally, and 1/3 were already 
acquainted with the giri before 
attending SMC. 

Where-was vour date at? Not many 
students cruised the Carribean or 
jetted to Europe, but they did seem to 
go 10 one of three places: 
Approximately 1/4 of the girls were 
taken to church, another 1/4 to a 
planned campus activity, then another 
^1/4 (obviously somatatonic) were

wined and dined at either the 
cafeteria, or a local eatery. One-eighth

One girl got desperate and went to 
amovie off campus! After she blurted 
out this revelation she tried to retract 
it. but the press remains free, indeed. 

In order of popularity, the guys 
preferred a date at church first, an 
eating engagement second, and a date 
at a planned campus activity, third. 

What was your mental slate at the 
time? indicates that the mental health 
of the campus is generally good, for 
only 1 /7 of the girlsand l/16of the 

and trust of their date ... .or so they say 
(these were the most successful of all 
thedaters). Finally a whopping 2/3 
claimed they gained the appreciation, 
respect, and trust of their first datel 
Similiar to the girls, 2/3 of you 
strapping bucks felt you'd won the 
appreciation, respect, and trust of your 
first date. 1/17 claimed only 
appreciation and respect as your 
prizes, and were not sure you had 
gained her trust. 1/12 felt you had 
gained her appreciation, yet lacked her 
respect and trust. Yet another 1/12 
concluded your date was bored and 
disinterested in you. 

Was religion discussed? 1/3 of the 

guys reported themselves to b 
nervous, edgy, or apprehensive uu 
their date (one girl bustled that she 
was prim and confident, and one guy 
described himself as suave and 
debonair. I'll bet you'd like the names 
ofthese two characters, huh?). Byfar, 
the great majority of guys and gals 
said that they were calm and collected, 

What was the result of the dale? 
1/15 of the giHs spent their entire date 
trying to establish common grounds, 
butfailed. 2/15 were bored. 1/10 
gained the appreciation and respect of 
theirdate. 1/15 became deeply 
engaged in interesting conversation, 
and gained the appreciation, respect. 

girls reported that they actually had 
not broached the subject of religion on 
their first date. This statistic is 
alarming and may indicate a decaying 
spiritual atmosphere. Among the 
fellas, neariy 1 /2 admitted that they 
had not discussed religion. Perhaps 
the numbers speak for themselves? 

At the present, what areyour 
dating problems? Only half of those 
girls interviewed insisted they had no 
dating problems. 1 / 10 asserted that a 
guy liked her, but she didn't like him. 
Another 1/10 revealed that they liked 
a guy, but he didn't like her. Finally, 
approximately 1/13 (a very unlucky 
fraction) declared themselves aloof. 

floating high above the snares and 
entanglements of earthly dating 
problems. These we surely envy. 

The guys, on the other hand, 
decreed that a full l/2of their number 
had escaped the problems of dating. 
Statistically at least, it would appear 
that the giris are more conscious of the 
difficulties that afflict their social lives. 
So, fellas, some of us have got to do 
what we can to soothe their heart-sick 

Does a poor dating life make you 
feel socially isolated from either the 
male or female population? How did 
the statistics treat this problem? 3/7 
of the girls responded that they were 
experiencing isolation and neglect 
from the male population. Only 1/5 of 
(he guys claim isolation from the 
female population. Here again, it 
would appear that the girls are 
definitely perceptive of a social 
estrangement, while the guys seems 
nearly unconcerned. 

Do grades fluctuate because of the 
success or failure of your dating life? 
brought nearly a unanimous 
conclusion: Very close to 3/4 of the 
girls indicated the success or failure of 
their dating life could effect their 

In view of the Scripture, are 
students letting vanity influence their 
selection of a date? The girls indicated 
with a vote near 100% that too many 
students were permitting vanity to 
influence their selection of a date. To 
our student sociologists, it is quite 
interesting to note that nearly 1 /3 of 
the males thought vanity was not 
overtly present. This represents a 
major disagreement between the guys 
and the gals, and I cannot offer any

High School Graduates have banquet 

D Jerry Dick Lien 

"Dear High School Graduate: 

You are invited to a buffet supper 
in the banquet room of the College 
Cafeteria on Thursday evening, 
September 30. at 5:00 p.m. 

We do hope that you will be there 
to get acquainted with the other 
freshmen from high schools. We also 
want to meetyou. 

..,,! am enclosing a list of college 
freshmen who are from high schools. 
Get acquainted with as many as 
possible. Bring this sheet with you 
when you come to the buffet supper 
and on arriving meet various ones. 
Check the names of the ones you have 

Please plan to be there. 
Best Wishes 
Hilda Fern Remley 
Student Recruitment 

And so they came, approximately 
65 or 70 freshmen, graduates of 
non-SDA secondary institutions. 

"The banquet, you see, is really a 
way for the students who have not 
gone to one of our academies to 
become acquainted with each other. 
Many times they tend to feel lonely 
when they arrive on our campus and 
feel that they are in a minority or not a 
part of the group." remarked Hilda 
Fern Remley. Director of Student 
Recruitment for Southern Missionary 

However, such a view, on the part 
of the incoming freshmen, need not be 
the case. The 'get acquainted' 
program at SMC, instituted last year 
for the first time, has a twofold 
purpose. The first objective is to 
demonstrate to those students 
attending the function that there is a 
large number of their fellows from 

high school who have also chosen to 
attend a christian school embodied in 
Southern Missionary College. The 
second purpose is to show them that 
the school cares. 

"Of course we had represented the 
high schools from within the Southern 
Union. But also attendind the banquet 
were students from Michigan, New 
Jersey. Virginia, West Virginia, 
Texas, and other areas. So the 
representative cross section was quite 
widely spread." stated Remley. 

Naturally, banquets being what 
they are, there was during the course 
of the program, food served and 

The students were welcomed to 
SMC by College President Dr. 
Frank Knittel. 

Essential to the survival of any 
student in the labyrinth of academia is 
a knowledge of who is who among the 
faculty. With this purpose in mind, 
those worthies, were duly introduced 
to the attentive novitiates into the 
wonders and mysteries of college life. 

During the course of the banquet, 
occasion was given for the new 
students to become better acquainted 
with each other and the school by 
means of a question and answer 

The function ended with a 
benediction by Elder K.R. Davis. 

"I thijk that this type of program 
provides much needed aid for those 
students who have not before been in 
one of our school systems. It was 
interesting for me to note their 
responses to pur questionnaire. The 
three elements about SMC that the 
students responded most favorably to 
were the spiritual atmosphere, the 
rural setting, and the friendly and 
helpful attitude of both students and 
faculty." said Remley. 

Learn to Write Right 

"You don't have to plan to fail; all 
you have to do is fail to plan." 

Written assignments indicate your 
grasp of class work. The most common 
ones are either reports or research 

Appraise what you are being asked to 
write. Think about the research, 
reading , and writing you will have to do. 
And be sure to allow yourself plenty of 
time to meet the deadline. 

Reports are a test of your ability to 
understand and react to some things you 
have read. An instructor usually expects 
a short summary of the content of the 
book or article, your comments on the 
author's presentation and style, yoyr 
personal reaction to the work, and an 
evaluation of its importance. 

Research papers are a test of your 
ability to choose a topic, investigate it, 
organize the material, and them write 
about it clearly and accurately. When 
you are asked to choose a topic, be 
realistic about it. Can you handle it? 

Does your library have enough resource 
books? Four or five sources, at lea., 
should be used. The most effective w 
to collect data is to use index card. 
Each card should indicate the sour- 
ce,author, publisher, date and ds.L 
number. After you have completed the 
research, arrange the cards in a sequen 
ce that will allow you to write about the 
subject with continuity and coherence 

Before you begin writing a report or 
paper it is always best to make an 
outline of what you plan to sav 
Outlines are as indispensable to such 
writing as blueprints or drawings are to 
carpenters. First, write down the main 
headings, leaving several lines of space 
in between. Then, under each of the 
headings, list the subheadings that are 
to be covered. Identify the specific 
points that should be developed under 
the subheadings, and so on. When the 
blueprint is complete, you are ready to i 
start writing. Organize your outline I 
well, follow it carefully, and your written 
presentation will reflect a logical and 
thorough development of the subject. 

Areopagus Serves Spiritual Food ■ 

Mercantile and Campus Shop 

Undergo Major Revisons 

DVinita Wayman 

Have a greaseless steamed cheese 
sandwich at the Areopagus. Put your 
favorite cheese on bread (onion, wheat 
egg, rye, or pumpernickel), and then 
settle back and enjoy the gospel 
groups, skits, and testimonies per- 
formed live on stage. 

The Areopagus is a non-denomina- 
tional Christian restaurant built and 
run by kids off the highways and 
byways of life and whose mission is to 
show the love of Christ. Bill Tiller, a 
member of SALT, the house instru- 
mental group, says "We want to unite 
the body of Christ and break down the 
barriers by getting together and unit- 
ing in fellowship. That's what we're 
doing-loving one another." 

'Areopagus' is a Greek word found 
in Acts 17 meaning 'open air meeting'. 

In the time of Paul, Athenian leaders 
gathered at Mars Hill and decided on 
public issues. These discussions e- 
volved into think tanks for religious 
and philosophical ideas. Hence the I 
Areopagus--a gathering point for all 
believers to express a life in Christ. 

Entering the weathered-board lao- 
tern-lit interior of the Areopagus, one 
is greeted by an outstretched hand and 
a smiling face. The first floor boasts a 
craft shop, featuring hand-made leath-

rocking chairs. Upstairs is the popular 
Yellow Deli snack bar.

DJerry Dick Lien 

Students returning to SMC and 
members of the community have 
noticed recent changes in the Campus 
Shop and the Southern Mercantile. As 
the work of making the stores ready for 
customers, has progressed there has 
been a note of general approval 

In a recent interview with Holland 
McKibbon. manager of both stores, 
the Southern Accent learned that the 
Industrial Board decided on May 4 to 
reconstruct the Campus Shop and 
Mercantile along different and more 
profitable lines. 

Renovation was carried out in both 
stores during the summer months. 
The College Engineering Department 
installed the lighting system in the 
Souihcni Mercantile, while caqjenlcr

tions, The Campus Shop shelving was

Mercaniilo showroom ' »aid McKib- 

The Campus Shop now has new 
formal in whic^ books, school sup- 
plies, cards and stationery are offered 
while its supply of clothing has been 
transferred to the other store. There is 
now an open stack book system by 
which students may personally select 

their textbooks, rather than wait for a 
clerk to find them, as has previously 
been the case. 

McKibbin continued, "The reason 
for the change in the book selection 
system was to make it easier for the 
students to get their books and to 
speed things up. However, the 
Computer Center did find it rather 
difficult to handle charges as quickly 
as was desired. They are working on 
plans to rectify the situation, and by 
mid-Ierm, things will be improved. 
Long lines should then be eliminat- 

On further questioning, Mr. Mc- 
Kibbin explained. "We have taken the 
clothing section out of the Campus 
Shop and put it into the Southern 
Mercantile. The clothing we mer- 
chandise is name brand and of a more 
casual look rather than formal. This 
seer,.s to appeal to a wider crusi- 
su'.- in of people. " 

.11 the past, the Southern Mercan- 
tile vas thought of as a hybrid 
hardware and variet>' store with many 
of the features of each, '.lowevi. with 
the present change, the establis ent 
could more accurately be termed a 
department store. 

Central to the change in srruLiure 
is the catalogue showroom set up for 
gift items at wholesale prices. 
Approximately 75% of all items listed 
in the catalogue are to be found in the 

"Andrews University and Southern 

Missionary College have gone to- 
gether on this plan. By doing so, we 
can eliminate items that are found in 
the complete book such as jewelry and 
smoking accessories," Mr. McKibbin 

According to McKibbin, the com- 
bining of the stores allows for greater 
purchasing pow er. The success of the 
two establisments is based on volume 
business. There is direct dealing with 
the manufacturer with no middle man 
on catalogue items. The Southern 
Mercantile, as a result of its present 

merchandising changes, is a member | 
of the Associated Catalogue Merchan- 
disers headquartered in Windsor Loci,

sales on various items as we have done 
in the past. Generally, these sales will 
last from one week to ten days. We

Why Stuff Yourself? 


DGary Williams 

"Fear God, and give Him glory, 
because the hour of His judgement has 
come; and worship Him who made the 
heaven and the earth and sea and 
springs of water/'Rev. 14:7 NASB 

Fear is the old English word for 
reverence. Reverence is an attitude of 
the heart which is an old English 
word for the mind. 

The mind houses the essence of 
what we are. It is the vital medium of 
communication between God and man. 

Reverence has as its base the 
principle of love. If love isn't its basis, 
then it degenerates into primitive 
fear -a sense of impending danger or 

Our views of God determine our 
attitudes toward God. If we view God 
through this false coloring of fear, we 
have no foundation for trust. 

Trust is the basis of a love-rela- 
tionship. Without it there can be no 

genuine love. 

In this aspect of reverence glory is 
presented. Glory is the character of 
God as shown in Exodus 34 in answer 
to Moses' request to see God's glory. 

We give God glory by being what 
He would have us to be. We are totally 
dependent on God for everything for 
in Him we libve and move and have 
our being. Acts 17:28 

Worship falls into place now. 
Because of the love-relationship we 
desire God's presence. It holds 
meaning and purpose because without 
these elements it is senseless to 

Reverence takes on a new light 
now. It isn't a Puritan hangover-it is a 
vital part of the worship experience. 

You render unto God reverence 
before glory. Worship proceeds in 

The condition of my mind deter- 
mines the condition of ray worship. 
Reverence and glory as shown are

Eating, eating and more eatingi 
Ever get that feeling? if you haven't, 
then you are one of the few fortunates 
who never felt like stuffing 
themselves. Why stuff yourself? Oh. 
because you were bored, or mad, or 
even overfed by a helping home body 
(your mother, grandmother, a sweet 
oleaunt). However, if you have never 
overeaten you do not qualify to read 
this article and should not proceed 
beyond this point unless you are doing 
so to see how the overeaters live. 

Now that we have weeded out the 
people, let us meet and discuss in 
mutual harmony the qualities of an 
over bountifully full stomach. Sit 
down, relax, and begin to think of a 

basic parts of worship. 

We must come prepared to Wor- 
ship. We can not make a hasty 
preparation; it must be daily exercise. 

As we enter the house of God, we 
should be ready to meet Him. He has 
given so much for us, and we can only 
wonder how much do we give Him, 
We can only give Him ourselves. 
That's all He wants. 

In the Testimony of Jesus we have 
a wealth of information on this subject. 

We are told in John 14:1-3 that 
Jesus is preparing a place for us. The 
question is are we preparing a place in 
our hearts for Him day by day? 

. Remember any 
e have all 

time when you overai 

good ones? Ah yes I 

some faces now. Now that w 

found a place in our memories of 

gastronomic ecstasy, think to the 

aftereffects. Okay, now I have some 

questions. Please, no raised hands, no 

yea's or nea's, just use your mental 

powers to mark this if it is true of your 

experience or false (not pertaining to 


1) Did your stomach feel 
overioaded. even bloated? 2) Was it 
so good that you couldn't wait for the 
next time when it would be served 
again and planned to load-up then? 
3) Were you tired and feeling like 
taking a nap rather than doing 
exercise? 4) Was your mind so 
benumbed that even the simplest 
strain upon your brain became too 
much? 5) Could you truthfully say five 
minutes after filling yourself beyond 
normal capacity that you felt like you 
were glorifying God? 

After you have pushed the correct 
buttons in your mind, now ponder on 
this thought from Ellen White, on our 
special subject of over-eating. 

"What you need is less temporal 
food and much more spiritual food, 
moreof the bread of life. The simpler 
your diet,- the better it will be for you." 
Counsels on Diet and Foods page 102 

If we could all be filled with God's 
word and things that are spiritual just 
think what it would be like to be 
gluttons for the Lord. 

Sanctificatien b CenHnual Justif iccrtion ' Bible Sludy No. 3 

□Geoff Owens 

I suppose every denomination has 
its own lingo and terminology. As an 
Adventist one of the phrases I've 
grown up with is: Justification is the 
work of a moment; Sanctification is the 
work of a lifetime. That led me to feel 
that Christ would justify me while I 
had to sanctify myself. Of course if I 
didn't succeed completely He would 
make up the difference, but 1 still had 

^rotn \^t 
of llcsus 

The intercession of Christ in man's 
behalf in the sanctuary above is as 
essential to the plan of salvation as 
was His death upon the cross. By His 
death He began that work which after 
His resurrection He ascended to com- 
plete in heaven. We must by faith 
enter within the veil, "whither the 
forerunner is for us entered." He- 
brews 6:20. There the light firom the 
cross of Calvary is reflected. There 
niay gain a clearer insight into the 
mysteries of redemption. The salva 
^'on of man is accomglished at ai 
infinite expense to heaven; the sacri- 
fice made is equal to the broadest 
demands of the broken law of God. 
Jesus has opened the way to the 
Father's throne, and through His 
mediation the sincere desire of all who 
come to Him in faith may be presented

to do my best. 

It really amounted to salvation by 
works, hut when they tell you to do 
your best, fight temptation, pray with- 
out ceasing, and all the other goodies 
that supposedly make a Christian out 
of you, what else are you left with? 
It's a pretty big job trying to get all 
those things done, and if it isn't 
"works" I have a wrong concept of 

Anyway, Morris Venden has given 
me what I feel to be a more correct 
idea of what goes on. From something 
he said I inferred that he was really 
saying that sanctification was nothing 
moie than continual justification. In 
other words, Christ does all, and there 
is really nothing for me to do but allow 
Him to control my life.

provides greater satisfaction than their present solution. To motivate 
non-believers to establish this relationship. Christians need to show the

Christ has done for himj and what he will do.l 
This study will present some of these things.

Part 3 "Faith' 

One of the perils of the modem 
religious scene is the idea that it is 
because of 'my' faith that God accepts 
'me'. Faith is made to bp the 
fouDdation or basis of salvation. This 
^ IS a mistake. 

"The whole trouble is that faith is 
being considered as a beneficent 
quality of the soul without respect to _ 
the reality or unreality of its object. . . " 
"Christ is the object of faith. It is 
from the object only that faith derives 
its efficacy." iy«ema(ic Theology. 
"Faith does not make, it merely 

The fathers of the Reformation 
taught that faith was only an 
instrument for receiving or laying hold 
on what God has already provided in 
the merits Jesus Christ. 

"Faith is not the ground of our 
salvation, but it is the freat 
blessing--the eye that sees, the ear 

that hears, the feet that run. the hand 
that grasps. It isthe means noMhe 
end." VOL.6. SDABC p.l073. 

"Humility, meekness, and 
obedience are not faith, but they are 
the effects, or fruit of faith." VOL.5. 
Testimonies p. 438 

"...Faith is not sight; faith is not 
feeling; faith is not reality. ' 'Faith is 
the substance of things hoped for. the 
evidence of things not seen." 
Fundalmentals of Education Page 341 

It is faith that enables us to look 
beyond the present, beyond what we 
see, beyond what we now possess. 
Faith enables us to see Christ in 
heaven, the object and foundation of 
ourbelief and trust. 

"The only faith that will benefit uS 
is that which embraces Him (Jesus) as 
a personal Saviour; which appropriates 
His merits to ourselves." Gospel

Jesus Who Needs Him? 

2. What is Jesus willing to do for us? 

He offers to walk with us and give us happiness. 

Matt. 28:20; Col. 2:6; I Peter 2:6; John 10:10. 1 John5:12. 

He offers to share with us His victory. John 16:33 I John 5:7 

He offers to grant us his peace. John 14:27 

He offers to give us a home with Him. John 14:1-3 

He offers to give us power to exercise faith. Romans 12:3 

He offers to provide us an assurance of salvation. John 6:47 

So let us give Christ our life and accept Him as our Saviour and Lord 
Domg this, we have the assurance of becoming a fruitful branch in the 
kmgdom of Chnst s grape vine, with Christ as that Vine. 

Nert week, we will consider the ultimate reality of salvation which is the 
Blessed Hope of Jesus' second coming. 

Why is wine-drinking allowed in 
the Bible? In Deuteronomy 14:26 the 
Israelites are allowed to drink ' 'wine 
and strong drink ' '. 

Yes. and e 

n the New 

Testament deacons are forbidden to 
overindulge in wine (1 T 3:8) but total 
abstinance was not required. It is 
usually incontinence in the use of wine 
"drinking to the point of intoxication -- 
which is forbidden in the Bible (Pr. 
20:1; 21:17; Is. 5:11, 22; 28:7-8; 
56:11-12: Hos. 4:11; Eph. 5:18). 
The strongest injunction against 
drinking, in Pr. 23:29-35. refers to a 
particular kind of spiced wine (SS 8:2) 
also called mixed wine (Pr. 9:2;23:30) 
which was prepared with herbs after 
the manner of the heathen 
near-eastern nations and served at a 
banquet. This wine, being much more 
intoxicating than the regular was 
forbidden. Otherwise the principle 
seems to be one of moderation. 

Indeed, wine which "makes man's 
hearts glad" is said to be one of 
the giftsof God (Ps. 104:15). Even 
Daniel, after refusing the king's wine 
(Dn 1 ), mainly because it had been 
offered to idols (PK 481) although he 
also feared its effects {PK 482), later 
drank it (Dn 10:3), presumably 
because in his position of authority he 
could obtain wine which hadn't been 
offered to idols. 

Why then don't we drink wine 
today? For the same reason that we do 
not keep slaves, or marry four wives, 
or do several of the other things which 
were allowed in the Old Testament. 
Today we know better. And "to one 
who knows the right thing to do, and 
does not do it, to him it is sin." 
(James 4:17). In the past God 
overlooked the times of ignorance 
(Acl7:30) and allowed certain 
practices which we would consider 
wrong today, or at least undesirable, 
because of the hardness of Israel's 
hearts (Matthew 19:4-8). The 
patriarchs were polygamists. Jewelry 
was a common item of apparel in 
ancient Israel. The Israelites kept 
slaves, and they could divorce a wife 
for a number of reasons. Even Christ 
was not a vegetarian. 

However. Isrealite slavery was 
very mild compared to the cruelty of 
the heathen toward their slaves. Both 
divorce and polygamy fell under 
certain restrictions not observed by the 
heathen. Thus, God had already 
begun a program of enlightenment 
which would eventually result in the 
elimination of these evils. 

Being very wise and very merciful, 
God never makes the mistake of taking 
His chosen people all the way from 
where they are to where they ought to 
be in one drastic step. This would 
result in cultural shock and complete 
rebellion. Rather, the church must be 
slowly weaned from those practices 

which are detrimental to physical and 
spiritual well-being. God reveals His 
ethical and moral principles little by 
little. This is called progressive 

Even in the Old Testament wine 
was forbidden to priests and Nazarites 
(Leviticus 10:9; Numbers 6:3) which 
shows that it was not fit to drink. 
Alcohol was not outlawed in the New 
Testament for several reasons. In New I 
Testament times, since there was no 
refrigeration, it was difficult to keep 
grapejuicefreshandunfermented. It I 
was customary at this time to mix the 
fermented wine with water, one part 
wine to two parts water. The resulting 
beverage was quite weak and 
relatively innocuous; a person would 
have had to drink alot of it before he 
became drunk. By comparison, our 
alcoholic beverages today are much 
more potent. Furthermore, the alcohol I 
in wine served a useful function in 
purifying the water by killing the 
germs in it. 

But the ideal is stated by Paul in I 
Corinthians 10:31 -- "Whether you eat 
or drink.... doall to the glory of God," 
Today none of the conditions 
mentioned above still exist, and incur 
enlightened age, it is wrong to drink 
any sort of alcoholic beverage, 
particulariy since, as has recently beeo | 
demonstrated, even one drink kills a 
certain number of brain cells. And if 
any man destroys the temple of God, 
God will destroy him." ( 1 Corinthians

SMC Nursing Building 
Named "Herin Hall 

Construction is in progress (bottom photo) on the proposed new addition I

Construction Continues 
On New Dorm Additions 

Southern Missionary College is 
proceeding with expanded dormitory 
facilities to accomodate the annually 
increasing enrollment. 

Construction of a new wing on 
Talge Hall, the men's dorm, is nearing 
completion, with some rooms already 
occupied. When completed, the ex- 
tension will house 116 students. 

Work has begun on a new women's 
dormitory, to be connected to the 
existing Thatcher Hall by covered 
walks, and is expected to be completed 
for the beginning of the 1977-'78 
school year. That facility will accom- 
modate 252 women. 

Financing for the projects is being 
provided by the SMC Committee of 
100. The Talge wing is expected to 
cost 5400,000, and the Thatcher ex- 
tension, $1,250,000. SMC will rent the 
structures from the Committee of 100, 
which is presided over by William lies, 
of Orlando, Florida. 

The cost of the additions was 
originally estimated at $5,000 per 
student bed, but according to R.C. 
Mills. SMC business manager, the 
actual cost of the Talge wing has only 
come to $3,500 per student bed. 

The buildings were designed by 

Jack Tyler and Associates, who does 
the architectural work for the college, 
and are being built by the SMC 
Engineering Department. 

Jones Hail, currently a women's 
residence, is expected to house the 
overflow of men from Talge Hall, when 
the women move into the new That- 
cher addition 

D William H.Tayloi 

The new nursing education build- 
ing was formally named Mazie Herin 
Hall during chapel ceremonies held 
October 26. 

The structure is being named after 
a former chairman of the SMC depart- 
ment of nursing in recognition of her 
service to SMC and to the Seventh-day 
Adventist church. 

The building was dedicated in 
April because of the presence on 
campus at that time of the college 
board and the Committee of 100, 
which financed a large share of the 
construction costs, but the special 
naming ceremony was delayed until 
Ms. Herin could visit the school. 

Also to be honored at the ceremony 
will be Mr. and Mrs. William lies of 
Orlando, who were contributors to the 
project. Mr. lies is president of the 
SMC Committee of 100. The Kresge 
Foundation provided $50,000 to com- 
plete the financing of the $500,000 
structure. Fund raising at SMC is 
headed by Dwight S. Wallack, director 
of development. 

Mazie Alice Herin attended SMC 
while it was still known as Southern 
Junior College. She graduated from a 
two-year program in 1937, prior to 
taking nursing, which she completed 
at New England Sanitarium and Hos- 
pital in Melrose, Mass. in 1940. She 
earned the B.S. degree from Columbia 
Union College, Takoma Park, Md., in 
1944. In 1948 the University of 
Colorado conferred the Master of 
Personnel Service degree upon her. 

Ms. Herin has worked as staff 
nurse at New England Sanitarium and 
Hospital; at White Memorial Hospital, 
Los Angeles: at Washington Sanitar- 
ium and Hospital, Takoma Park, Md.; 
and at Quincy City Hospital, Quincy, 

She was assistant director of nur- 
ses and a nursing instructor at SMC 

[courtesy of Public Relations office] 

from 1944-1947. She \ 
coordinator and later chairman of the 
department of nursing. Union College, 
Lincoln, Nebraska, from 1947-1956. In 
1956 she returned to SMC to serve 
until 1960 as chairman of the nursing 

Ms. Herin is presently employed as 
an associate secretary of the depart- 
ment of health of the General Confe- 
rence of SDA's and as a consultant for 
the Nursing Education and Nursing 
Service Department. 
Her duties include visiting throughout 
the church's 36 schools of nursing and 
300 hospitals throughout the world, 
coordinating activities and giving coun 
sel on programs in nursing and nur- 
sing services. Some 800 nurses 
graduate annually from these schools. 

Mills To Co To Ohio Conference 

DJetry Dick Lien 

"I am looking forward to being in 
contact with the churches and workers 
in evangelistic work. I think that my 
position in the Ohio Conference will 
provide me with a great opportnmty 
for challenge in this direction sa.d 
R.C. Mills, Business Manager of bML 
in an interview Thursday. 

Elder Mills, who has been at SMC 
for the past sii years, received a call 
from the Ohio Conference of Seventh- 
day Adventists on October 3 to 
become Sesretary-Treasurer. Mills 
experience record through the years 

makes him eminently fitted for such a 
position. He has moved from slngmg 
evangelist to become hospital admini- 
strator treasurer at local, union, and 
division levels, as well as his present 
position at this college, administrator 
of financial affairs. 

"Of all the types of situations in 
which I have been involved, I enjoy the 
most the type that my new position 
affords," Elder Mills stated. "In the 
Ohio Conference there is a member- 
ship of 10,000 ™"i 8* churches, a 
boarding academy at Mt. Vernon, and 
a day academy at Kettering. My new 
position will consist of a general 

financial oversight of the Conference, 
the academies, and elementary schools. 

The position of Business Manager 
of a college is an integral part of a 
whole. In other words, there are a 
number of people such as the various 
deans, and of course, myself who 
answer directly to the college presi- 
dent. However, with the Conference 
position, the responsibility is more 
focused. The Conference President 
and the Secretary-Treasurer are alone 
in responsibility."

Miss Frances Andrews, journalism 
professor, and Mike Bradley, a post- 
graduate, who is news director at 
WSMC FM were invited to join Sifima 
Delta Chi. This honor is extended to 
certain professional journalists who 
are members of the working press, 

A provisional chapter of Sigma 
Delta Chi is being formed in Chatta- 
nooga. The provisional officers in- 
clude: Norman Bradley, Editor of the 
Chattanooga Times and Ms. Jackie 
Shulton, channel 3's news anchor- 

The first meeting was at the Read 
House in Chattanooga on October 18. 
Republican Senatorial incumbent Bill 
Brock met with Democratic challenger, 
Jim Sasser for a long-awaited debate. 
It drew a large number of local 
newsmen, as well as the national and 
international press. Chattanoogans 
were joined by people from Cleveland, 

Dalton, Nashville, and other surround- 
ing cities. 

Afterwards, Miss Andrews and 
Bradley went to meet Brock and 
Sasser. Their personal conversation 
was informative and interesting. 

It has been in the last few years 
that Sigma Delta Chi has allowed 
women to join. Miss Andrews said, "I 
am looking forward to being an active 
member of the local society. I will be 
able to get acquainted with the work- 
ing press people and invite guest 
speakers to come talk with us." 

Eric Newhous, the associated press 
editor, welcomes news from SMC. He 
would like to encourage students to 
write and send in good material. 

Sigma Delta Chi members will 
meet every month for a dinner 
meeting. SMC is now represented by 
three outstanding joumalists--Bil! 
Taylor, public relations director at 
SMC, Miss Frances Andrews, , and 
Mike Bradley.

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor, 

I would like to commend you for 
publishing the article -Carter and 
Christianity" in the recent Accent. I 
feel that we as voters need to be aware 
of the issues before we vote. 

But, there are several issues not 
mentioned in the article about Mr. 
Carter that I feel we, as Seventh-day 
Adventists, need to be aware of. 

First of all, according to the official 
Demoaatic summary. Mr. Carter is 
endorsed by the AFL-CIO. Also, he 
states that "labor unions play an 
important, constructive role in society 
and are necessary to balance^ the 
powerof business and industry." He 
supports strong pro-labor legislation 
which would infringe upon the rights 
of non-union workers such as the 
repeal of the Taft-Hartley Act, section 
14B. In 7 T 84 and 2SM 142-4, Ellen 
White states that Seventh-day Ad- 

ventists should not be associated with 

According to Phyllis Metsky, local 
coordinator for the Carter campaign 
Mr. Carter definitely supports social- 
ized medicine which is government 
control of all medical services. All 
Seventh-day Adventists need to consi- 
der the possible damage that govern- 
mental control of doctors and medicine 
could cause our extensive denomina- 
tional medical programs in the United 

Mr. Carter's record while governor 
of Georgia shows that he is quite 
willing to pass Sunday Blue Laws and 
he has publicly stated during his 
presidential campaign that "a day ot 
rest law is needed." 

We as Seventh-day Adventists and 
as Americans need to do all possible 
with our political involvement and 
votes to uphold our religious freedom 
and individual rights. 

FRANKLY SPEAKING by phil frank 

We the staff of the Southern 
Accent recognize our responsibility to 
serve God through our service to the 
students, faculty and community of 
Southern Missionary College. 

Our purpose Is to promote aca- 
demic, social, and spiritual awareness. 
Every article is to be full of practical, 
elevating, and ennobling thoughts 
-which will give the reader help, light, 
and strength. Every sentence written 
should mean something definite, 
shoula be true, sincere. Not a scratch 
of the pen should be made in order to 
become popular or to vindicate that 
which God condemns.

D Carmen Miranda 

"Sa vad dee ka" greets Maprang 
Viyapom in the tongue of her distant 

Maprang is a second-year fresh- 
man at our college, and is considering 
entering the field of agriculture. She 
has been in the U.S. for four years 
now. having spent two years in a 
private high school learning to speak 
English before she came to S.M.C. 

Speaking about her school years in 
Thailand, Maprang explains that the 
school system is quite different from 
that of U.S.A. Not everyone can attend 
school, for there are no public schools, 
but everyone must finance their 
schooling - beginning with the first 
grade. Many are deprived of an 
education for the lack of means. You 
pay tuition, books, uniform, teaching. 

The schools are very strict with 
their students, reports Maprong. 
Every student's nails are looked over 
daily to make sure they are cut and 
kept clean. The length of the skirts 
must be below the knee, and all must 
keep their hair short-even the girls. 
This saves them time in caring for it. 

Asked what her country is like. 

a Foreign Student 
Fpom Thailand 

Maprang speaks of the tropical climate 
Thailand offers year round. She 
recalls the vast flatlands and the lovely 
evergreens that grow there. "The 
leaves never change color at home," 
she says, "I like it here in the fall when 
the leaves change color." 

Asked how often she goes home, 
Maprang answered that she would not 
get to go for a long time, when she had 
finished college. She cannot ipay the 
$2,000 round trip it would cost her 
every time she wanted to go. "I 
wait," she says, "It is hard, but 1 
cannot do any other thing." 

The dominant faith of Thailand is 
Buddhism. Maprang, was brought up 
in this faith, and she explains some 
practices of it. They possess 7 
commandments, very similar to the 
Law of God described in the Bible, 
with the ommitance of the first 
commandments, which speak of the 

worship of God. The Buddhists 
.worship Buddha once a week in 
church; these days are specified in 
rtheir calendars, and is no specific day 
of the week. Sitting reverently on the 
floors of their temple, they attentively 
listen to the reading of a bible by 
monks, who are the only ones to 
possess such a book. 

What influenced Mapranp to come 
to S.M.C. from Thailand? Some 
friends of her family, whose children 
attended S.M.C. encouraged her to 
come, and offered their help m 
financing her schooling. She visited 
our college to examine it more closely 
while she attended high school. 
She liked the way the people were 
here. The school possessed certain 
principles and rules that she was used 
to after being trained in Thailand. She 
enjoyed the fact that it is a relatively 
small college, where her needs could 

be taken care of personally. 

Maprang continued in her Bud- 
dhist faith her first semester here. 
She obeyed the school rules, but 
everything was so strange and new to 
her. She became interested in the 
SDA message when she attended 
church with her sponsors in Michigan 
during her stay with them one vaca- 
tion. She saw that they took their 
Bibles with them and were very good 
Christians. She participated in Bible 
studies last semester at SMC, and 
admits that she would like to know 
more about our faith. 

Maprang's wish is to share what 
she has learned here with her parents 
and relatives when she returns to 
Thailand. She is just one example of 
our ability to do mission work right 
here at SMC. There are many 
students who come here - from 
foreign countries, and from the neigh- 
boring states -- who do not know Jesus 
Christ as their personal Saviour. 
We are open letters that Jesus wishes 
to use to reveal His character and love 
to a world who desperately needs Him. 
Will you be someone's stepping stone 
to accepting Christ? Or will you be a 
stumbling block for a soul Jesus died 

Dr. Ray Hefferiin, Physics Depart- 
ment chairman, talked with the South- 
em Accent just after he returned from 
Europe, where he visited Russia, 
Switzerland, Austria, and France. 

He is now working at Oakridge 
National Laboratory as part of his 
sabbatical leave. 
What is a Sabbatical leave? 

It is time granted by a college or 
university to a faculty member, to be 
devoted to scholarly and/or culturally 
enriching pursuits requiring a longer 
period of time than, say, a summer 
leave would allow. It is "paid off' by 
the faculty member's subsequent six 
years of service on the faculty. 

What are you doing during your leave? 
Not digging for gold in the student 
park with garden tools! I am doing 
research in atomic and molecular 
Physics at OakRidge National Labora- 
tory, near Knoxville, Tenn.

competence but with very little infor-

Righteousness By Faith 

Part 4: Justification 

OMichael Kress 

Two thousand years ago our Sav- 
iour, by strict obedience to God's law. 
perfected an infinite righteousness. 
This He offers as a free gift to all who 
have faith to receive it. 

"Christ came specifically to fulfill 
the law for us. The law demands 
everlasting righteousness, and it is 
impossible that such a righteousness 
can ever be found in man. But it is 
written of Christ that He was ' 'to bring 
in everlasting righteousness". Dan. 
9:24 Bible righteousness by faith 
means to come before God with the 
everiasting righteousness of our Substi 
tute, and hope for acceptance and 
salvation on that ground alone." An 
Examination, McCurdy, p. 7 

"In the prophecy of Daniel it was 
recorded of Christ that He shall "make 
reconciliation for iniquity, and... bring 
in everiasting righteousness." Dan. 
9:24. Every soul may say: "By His 
perfect obedience He has satisfied the 
claims of the law, and ray only hope is 
found in looking to Him as my 
substitute and surety, who obeyed the 
law perfectly for roe. By faith in His 
merits 1 am free from the condemn- 
tionofthelaw. He clothes me with His 
righteousness which answers all the 
demands of the law." Selected 
Messages, p. J96. 

"Righteousness is obedience to the 
law. The law demands righteousness, 
and this the sinner owes to the law; but 
he is incapable of rendering it. The 
only way in which he can attain to 
righteousness is through faith. By 
faith he can bring to God the merits of 
Christ, and the Lord places the obe- 
dience of His Son to the sinner's 
account. Christ's righteousness is 
accepted in place of man's failure, and 
God receives, pardons, justifies, the 
repentant, behoving soul, treats him 
as though he were righteous, and loves 
him as His Son. This is how faith is

The only defense against evil is the 
indwelling of Christ in the heart 
through faith in His righteousm 
Unless we become vitally 
with God, we can never resist the 
unhallowed effects of self-love, self- 
indulgence, and temptation to sin. We 
may leave off many bad habits, for the 
time we may part company with Satan; 
but without a vital connection with 
God, through the surrender of our- 
selves to Him moment by moment, we 
shall be overcome. Without a personal 
acquaintance with Christ, and a con- 
tinual communion, we are at the mercy 
of the enemy, and shall do his bidding 
in the end.

The great work that is wrought for 
the sinner who is spotted and stained 
by evil is the work of justification. By 
Him who speaketh truth he is declared 
righteous. The Lord imputes unto the 
believer the righteousness of Christ 
and pronounces him righteous before 
the universe." Ibid. p. 353,392 

"The thought that the righteous- 
ness of Christ is imputed to us, not 
because of any merit on our part, but 
as a free gift from God, is a precious 
thought." Gospel Workers, p. 161. 

"For as by one man's disobedience 
many were made sinners, so by the 
obedience of One shall many be made 
righteous." "Thanks be unto God for 
His unspeakable gifti" Rom. 5:19; 
U Cor. 9:15 

Francia Sirpi 
What's That ? 

G Linda Gadd 

What's Frances Serpi, Nicaragua 
like? It's thatched-roof, bamboo hous- 
es on stilts, clustered together in a 
jungle clearing; muddy roads during 
rainy season which became rock hard 
and dusty in dry season. 

It's the smile of a mother at the 
birth of her child and the tears of a 
family at the death of his or her father. 
The prayers of a nurse on an emer- 
gency run to the nearest hospital with 
a patient, hoping they make it in time. 
Hearing the children sing in Sabbath 
School and seeing one little boy run 
home to put on his father's shirt so he 
could be dressed and attend Sabbath 
School too. 

Each of these are just a few of the 
components which go to make up 
Francia Serpi, yet the most important 
one is that of a student missionary 
kneeling before God claiming PhU. 
4:13 and asking for His help in all 
things, realizing that without Him he 
can do nothing. 

What are the reasons for leavmg 
home and going to a foreign mission 
field? For the excitement and pres- 
tige; perhaps so. However, there's not 
as much as one would think. The real 
reason should be love: Love for God 
3ple. He loved us enough to 

cross. We should love Him 

;h to carry the message that one 
ion, Christ is coming back and no 
will there be sin, pain or want, 
is the greatest privilege to work 



DTim Crosby 

Explain the text where Jesus said as 
Jonah was in the belly of the whale 
three days and three nights^so shall 
Jesus be in the tomb for three days 
and three nights literally. If this 
happenedfthen how could Jesus have 
been crucified on Friday and raised on 

This text is found in Mt. 12:40 and 
reads, in the NASB "for just as 
Jonah was three days and three nights 
in the belly of the sea monster, so shall 
the Son of Man be three days and 
three nights in the heart of the earth." 
To comprehend this and other 
texts, you must understand the Jewish 
way of speaking. To ancient peoples, 
exactness was not a virtue. Round 
numbers were commonly used. Many 
scholars feel that the number "forty" 
which occurs so often in the Bible is 
simply a customary round number 

meant to be un 

there are good r 
inexactness applies not only to num- 
bers but to other concepts. Take the 
last phrase of the above verse, for 
instance. Christ was not actually 
in the "heart" of the earth, which to 
us would be the center. He was only a 
few feet under the surface. Then 
again, note the use of the term "sea 
monster", an indiscriminate and in- 
exact term for any large aquatic 

field, both overseas and 
h^ere at home. The Lord can use all 
who are interested in being mission- 
aries for Jesus has said: "And this 
gospel of the Kingdom shall be pre- 
ached in all the worid as a witness unto 

Now the expression "x days and x 
nights" was a customary Jewish for- 
mula used where we would just say "x 
days." I suspect that this has some- 
thing to do with the fact that perhaps 
Jews called only the daylight hours the 
"day" (compare Jn, 11:9, "Are there 
not twelve hours in the day?" To our 
way of thinking a day has 24 hours), 
and so it was necessary to speak of "x 
day and x nights. " At any rate, the 
phrase does not necessarily denote 
exact twenty-four hour periods. 

The Jews computed time by a 
system called "inclusive reckoning," 
which, in the case of the burial of 
Jesus, worked like this; The day Jesus 
was buried was the first day of the 
three-day period, no matter how late in 
the day the burial occurred, the day he 
was in the grave was the second day, 
and the day he arose was the third day, 
no matter how small a fraction of the 
day he spent in the grave. 

This is how the Jews counted time; 
they included both the starting and the 
ending days in their reckoning. For 
example, if Christ had been buried one 
minute before sundown Friday and 
rose one minute after sundown on 
Sabbath, we would say he had been in 
the grave just one day (exactly 24 
hours and 2 minutes). But according 
to Jewish reckoning, he would have 
been in the grave three days: Friday, 
Saturday, and Sunday. So, according 
to their way of counting time, the 
prophecy was fulfilled exactly.

Are You a Trumpet? 

1 picked up my trumpet and started 
to finger the valves. The instrument felt 
so cold in my hands. 1 blew into the 
mouthpiece. Slowly but surely it began 
to warm up. 

Then my fingers began to get sticky, 
My heart jumped into my throat as I 
rose to play the trumpet before that vast 
assembly- there were about 50-60 kids 
tnere at Garden State Academy. It was 
to be the first time I had ever played my 
trumpet before any group of people, and 
1 was afraifi. 

The trumpet spit out the sounds I'd 
praotised hard to present. And. it 
wasn't the most fantasfic performance, 
but it was the best 1 couid do. Those 
who were listening Were kind not to 
laugh at my mess-ups. I knew t was dif- 
ficult for them to refrain from laughter, 
but after all, I was only a beginning 

When my performance was ovtr I 
took my seat with a sigh of relief. 1 
thought, 'I wish 1 had a better trumpet'! 
Thus it was that I put the blame of my 
poor playing on the kind of trumpet I 
was playing rather than on my mex-

Some are like the trumpet whose 
valves begin to stick, whose parts slowly 
corrode and waste away because he is 
afraid to be used. The very saliva which 
was to be implemented in the witness of 
sound becomes the very substance 

of destruction. 

The students who would be- used are 
like the instrument whose valves are 
oiled with the oil of the Holy Spirit. 
They are like the trumpet that warms up 
as it is played by the Son of God. The 
sound proceeding from the instrument 
is like nothing ever heard before and 
depending upon the instrument, has a

you can be used. He knows how to play

should speak loud. soft, when you

Students Vaccinated For Swine Flu 

Class To Conduct Community Survey 

Gariand Dulan's Sociology of 
Community class will be conducting a 
survey within the next two weeks on 
strength of community structure. The 
students of this class will halt stran- 
gers on the streets of small and large 
communities alike to ask questions on 
the following areas: 1. Age of the 
respondent; 2. Occupation of the 
respondentia. Sex of the respondent; 
4. How long respondent has lived in 

The respondent will be asked the 
following questions: In your opinion, 
who are the three most powerful 
individuals in your community (city)? 
Who has the most influence? Then the 
respondent will state the occupation of 
important individuals, the factor of 
influence, and why the individual is 

This survey is designed to reveal 
the 'tastes' of different age groups and 
different occupations. 


Swine flu immunizations (monova- 
lent) were given in the Student Center, 
November 7. They were made 
available to the students of SMC, 
faculty and administration, staff, in-

from the Department of Health, Edu-

(flu) is caused by viruses. When 
people get the flu they may have fever,

Virtuoso Gary Karr 
Presents Concert 

Soio bass virtuoso Gary Karr

6, in the Physical Education Center. 

Only the fourth person in history to 
be considered a virtuoso on the double 
bass, Karr has performed as guest 
soloist with over 100 orchestras and 
has given more than 300 recitals 
throughout the United States, Canada, 
Mexico, and Europe. 

In addition to his many concert 
appearances, Karr is a visiting lecturer 
at Hartt College of Music, University 
of Hartford, conducting master classes 
and coaching chamber music. 

Although no major composer has 
written a concerto or sonata for the 
double bass in two and a half 
centuries, Karr's performances have 
inspired several leading composers to 

Smoking Sam

Thousands of Americans have seen 
the Seventh-day Adventist 
Temperance Department's "Smoking 
Sam", a manikin that demonstrates 
how tat collects in the lungs as a result 
of cigarette smoking. But in India the 
church ran into a problem with 
Smoking Sam. 

Between his assignments at local 
exhibits the manikin was placed in the 
lobby of one of the church's hospitals, 
for lack of any other storage place. 

An all-India version, constructed 
from clay by a local idol-maker, Sam 
was not an unusual sight for the people 
passing through the hospital lobby. 
They simply made a side trip to Sam 
and bowed before him as they were 
accustomed to doing before their other

NCATE Evaluates Education Program 

administration, faculty, staff, and 
curriculum are provided to implement 
the stated purposes for preparing the 
student to meet professional goals. 

In the State of Tennessee, among 
the Uberal arts colleges, there are only 
five that are Nationally Accredited. 
Southern Missionary College has this 
distinction. The others are Xarron 
Newman, David Lipscomb, Milligan, 
and George Peabody Colleges. 

NCATE approval of education pro- 
grams has greatly improved the em- 
ployment situation for the graduates, 
due to extended reciprocity of certifi- 
cation and recognition of a quality 
program. The students that complete 
the Teacher Education program at 
SMC have placed on their transcript 
identification of NCATE approval. 
There are thirty-one states that grant 
reciprocity privileges in the certifica- 
tion of teachers and many other states 
look favorably on this approval. Those 
graduates who proceed to overseas 
countries have usually found that they 
are better served by coming from a 
program that enjoys national recogni- 

In its evaluation of a teacher 
education program, the team looks for 
two types of errors- errors of omission 
and errors of presentation. The team 
verifies the scope of the accreditation 
visit, identifies the eligible programs 
for evaluation, and assesses the msti- 
tutional self-study. 

The team members selected coop- 
eratively by NCATE and SMC are: Dr. 
Orval Filheck, Director of Teacher 
Certification, Abilene Christian Col- 
lege, Abilene. Texas; Dr. M.B. An- 
derson, Professor of Education, Alba-

Mr Don England, Director, Teacher 
Education & Certification, State of 
Tennessee; Mrs. Jeneal S. Wood,

Letters to the Editor 

Help! This oast weekend broueht to 
me the realization that our future 
health could very much be in danger. 

This letter is written in the hope that it 
might provide warning to all. 

Sabbath, October 30, two particular 
pre-med students, who will remain 
nameless, decided to attend Sabbath 
School in the Nursing Building. As 
they walked by the Learning Lab 
something caught their attention. 
Were they seeing things? Inside the 
locked room at a desk sat a very rigid 
nursing student. They tried banging 
on the door but the girl didn't move 
and they became extremely worried.

Pre-Med Student? Your health could 
very well be in danger. Be prepared 
and Beware of Med. StudentsI 

(Ed. - I'm sorry Pre-Meds, but the 
author of this letter is apparently 
afraid of you ■ he wouldn't sign 
his/her name). 

I have heard for the years that I 
was a student at SMC that I should be 
attentive in chapel, and I'll admit that 1 
at times have slept or read or chatted 
with my friends. 

Something caught my attention the 
other day, the front page of the 
Wednesday, Oct. 27 Chattanooga 
Times. Page One, lower left hand 
comer, the article on Our Tuesday's 
chapels went like this, "A portion (of 
the students) listened intently while 
others chatted with their friends, read 
books or in one case wrote a letter." 

I was embarrassed and remember- 
ed ail the times I had been disrespect- 
ful during chapel. 

I imagine that I could chastize all 

students, faculty, staff, and myself for 
disrespect, but the Chatanooga Times 
beat me to it. 

What's in store for the future? 
Can't we just sit quietly for 45 
minutes, counting the bricks in the 
wall if need be, or should we petition 
for more interesting chapels. Do we as 
college students have to be enter- 

I would suggest that we closely 
examine ourselves and our own indivi- 
dual chapel conduct and make each of 
us a committee of one to reevaluate 
our chapel behavior.

Remembrance Of Strangers In A Strange Land 

□Vinita Wayman 

I dragged my duffel bag to the 
door, fehook hands with the smiling 
stewardess in blue, and there we were, 
Rita Merchant and I, beginning our 
summer in Europe, at the airport 
terminal in Amsterdam. 

We were immediately engulfed in 
swarms of chattering, variously 
garberf Dutch lining the observation 
windows. Our conversation narrowed 
tn one word --wowl- as we made our 
o the money-changing booths and 

Staring at the strange currency, so 
lightweight, so big. so small, we 
struggled across the terminal's vast 
floor expanses and found the bus stop. 
Luggage was our number two prob- 
lem (Number One was language). 1 
had three pieces of luggage, weighing 
a total of 75 pounds, and being 
exhausted from our eight hour flight. I 
felt like ditching it behind the first 
windmill I spotted. Those much- 
rumored European porters who sup- 
posedly carry your bags with such 
fervor and romance, do not exist. 

We arrived by bus in the center of a 
Throbbing Amsterdam. Tiny cars 
rushed through the complicated inter- 
sections, dodging trolley cars and 
hundreds of bicycles. We disembark- 
ed opposite the trolley car ticket center 
and main stop. What now? A map! 
1 sat perched atop our heap of 

baggage while Rita went scrounging 
in hopes of information.! looked. The 
unfamiliar architecture with its ornate 
decoration and shingled, pitched roof 
buildings was fascinating. The 
people, too. I sensed my out-of-place- 
ness, though, as I studied the faces -- 
there was something undefinably dif- 

While absorbed in staring at one of 
the more natively dressed Hollanders, 
a thin middle-aged dark-browed man 
stopped near me, eyed my duffel bag 
and looked questioningly toward me, 
"Have you a place to stay?" English! 
Very poor, but like balm to my 
gibberish-battered ears. He shuffled 
closer, eyeing my old green duffel bag 
again. I then realized his intentions. 
A young American, alone, and seem- 
ingly stranded? No way, not me! I 
told him to "buzz off", but his English 
didn't stretch that far. 1 employed his 
own vocabulary, "Yes 1 have place to 
go. Goodbye!" He left 

Now 1 was worried about Rita 
Unfounded. She appeared unscathed 
with a map and reservations for a 
Christian youth hostel 

Trying to appear nonchalent we 
observed how the people bought their 
trolley tickets. We dug out our new 
money, spent a few mmutes stalling 
and calculating its worth, and held up 
two fingers to the ticket man 

Number One was our trolley Ime, 
according to the map. We got on. The 

car was packed, standing room only, 
and our luggage was blocking the 
entrance and exit doors. Like light- 
ning we were off -■ knocked off our feet 
and grabbing desperately for the rail- 
ings. We stopped. A crowd swarmed 
in and over our luggage, pushing us 
toward the middle of the car. Rita 
crackled open the map. With a jerk we 
were off again, crossing over canal 
after boat-lined canal. Another stop. 
Now it was breathing room only. I 
looked at Rita. Famous question. Now 

Against my will, 1 felt fear, fear of 

the unknow n land fear of getting lost. 
Another stop and more people. Then 
It was our stop Rita shoved her way 
through the mass of bodies and 
jumped out. I followed, but the 

masses closed in and I had too much 
luggage for any swift-footed actions. 
Too late. The electric doors closed and 
panic ate a hole in my heart. Rita 
waved and was gone in a blur as the 
car moved on. 1 tried to mow a 
pathway -- without success. Another 
stop. Hopeless. On again, and on and 
on. I knew 1 was lost and suddenly I 
realized that I was dependent on my 
Maker and that he could help me find a 
way out. Despite these thoughts, I felt 
unwanted tars rising, dribbling down 
my embarassed cheeks. 1 prayed and 
asked the Lord to guide me, lost 

That did it. He lifted my bags and 
burdens right off that trolley car. 
Three strong muscular men saw my 
need, barreled a path for this Ameri- 
can who didn't know better, and threw 
my bags out the door at the next stop. 
Praise the Lord! 

A block from the trolley stop, 
puffing, duffle bag in tow, I met a little 
boy walking his dog and we struck up a 
bargain. I walked his dog and he 
carried my stuff on his shiny new red 

Several minutes underway, Rita 
came worrying around a comer. Did 
we have a reunion! Such joy is a one 
time experience. 1 had met my long 
lost Friend and experienced avoided 
catastrophe. From grateful hearts, we 
thanked God for his abundance to us - 
jtrangers in a strange land.

A confrontation appeared immi-

climax on the floor of the assembly. 
Overseas officers felt the item inap-

measure vital. 

Elder Wilson. North American

speech in favor of the proposal. Elder 
Archibald. Inter-American Division 
President, responded to Wilson em- 

phatically. Archibald felt the measure 
would cause mass confusion among his 
relatively uneducated constituency. 
They would no longer understand the 
roll of the ordained ministers. 

Archibald moved that the measure

carried after Elder Pierson, General

church during the following year will 
be evangelism, according to a docu- 
ment accepted by the Annual Council. 
This document outlines several points 
in the thrust: 1) the primacy of 
evangelism, 2) the pastors' rolls to 
include more evangelism and fewer 
adminstrative duties. 3) 10 percent of 
the conference net tithe to be spent for 
evangelism (a significant increase on 
the conference level). 4 ) building 
projects to be limited (this money to go 
for evangelism). 5) establish mianisty 
in "unworked or dark" areas. 6) 
reach ministers of other faiths, and 7) 
use radio and TV ministry. 

According to Pierson and other 
church leaders this document will 
bring major changes if fully imple- 
mented. The document stated:Con- 
ferences shall lay definite plans... to 
reach every home within its territory 
with the three-angels' message be- 
tween now and the time of the GC 
session in Dallas (1979)." 

Other items discussed during the 
annual session included; divorce and 
remarriage in addition to sports in 
SDA schools.

Paul May attended SMC, served as 
president of the senior class and 
graduated in 1972 with a degree in 
Physics. Now at the antiquated age of 
26 (you see. we did say, "old 
graduates"), he is working toward his 
doctorate in physical oceanography at 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology 
and Woods Hole Institute of Oceanog- 
raphy, Falmouth, Mass. He is a 
graduate assistant. 

This past summer, May had the 

SMC Gra,

in Hinsdale, Illinois. He conSj 
his sea-faring tale.

capacity aboard the 210-foot research 
ship, imaginatively enough named the 
Atiantis. Along with a team of 
scientists, he spent most of the 
summer cruising the Indian ocean 
studying currents. 

"Above all, it was a chance to go 
around the world," May states. 
Besides the stint aboard ship. May had 
the opportunity to make the world trek 
beginning in Boston and journeying to 
the Swiss Alps, Nairobi, Kenya, and 
then to Mambase, Kenya where he 
boarded the Atlantis which then 
proceeded out to sea at 18 degrees 
south of the equator, then all the way 
across the ocean to Perth, Australia. 

Sunburned, weather-tanned, re- 
sembling a somewhat diluted version 
of Captain Ahab, May related his

Southern Missionary's variety of 
foreign students includes one from 
south West Germany-Claudia Kutz- 
schbach. She is a junior pre-medical 
student at SMC, aspiring to become a 
missionary doctor. 

Claudia graduated from the "Semi- 
nar Marienhohe in Darmstadt", near 
Frankfurt. In Germany, the school 
system is very different. Claudia 
attended an elementary school for four 
years, then later she attended the 
"Gymnasium" for 9 years, which is 
similar to our Junior High School and 
High School combined. 

When she graduated, Claudia was 
not sure what she wanted to do. She 
had always been interested in medi- 
cine. However, it was her opinion that 
such was too long a career for her. She 
was searching for a career that 
wouldn't take so long to prepare for. 

When she was 8, Claudia's parents 
were going to immigrate to California 
where her lather would worX with a 
literature evangelist. However, when 
all was ready for the trip, the literature 
evangelist died in an accident, and her 
parents decided it was God's will for 
them to stay in Germany, It had 
always been their desire to have 
Claudia attend Schools in America. 

She and her family met a friend 
who was a teacner here, at SMC and 
Andrews, visiting his parents in 
Germany. Claudia made known to him 
her desire to learn English better and 
attend school in America, though she 
:e she wanted to go into the 
medical field. This friend recom- 
mended Southern Missionary College, 
a small college where her needs could 
be met personally. 

Claudia thought it would be warm 
here in the South-she didn't even 
bring her coat when she first arrived. 
"1 found out later", she laughs, "that 

I had to write home for warm clothes 
and my coat. Sometimes its even 
colder than Germany. Where I live, 
winters are more mild, here it's 

"The weather in South Germany is 
wann in the summer, averaging 
75-80" F. " At home, Claudia is 
surrounded by Chestnut trees and 
small hills, mostly flatlands. College- 
lale doesn't permit her to be very 
homesick" the environment is very 
similar to home. "I felt very 
comfortable in Collegedale from the 
beginning, because people are so 
friendly and have helped me so much. 

It was really hard for Claudia 
scholastically at first. "It's so hard to 
come to a school and study in a 
language that has been your second 
language; and you lose so much in 
vocabulary", she explains. Her third 
language is French and a fourth is 
Spanish. Claudia speaks a very clear, 
disttnguishable English. 

In December it will be three years 
since Claudia has been an SDA. Her 
parents have been raised SDA. In 
South Germany the SDA brothers find 
no opposition from the government. 
They are allowed to carry out their 
religious activities and programs free- 
ly. Some of the activities they carry 
out are Evangelistic meetings, efforts, 
Bible studies, the work of evangelism 
to its fullest extent. 

This past summer, Claudia had 
the privilege of working as a student 
missionary at our Nicaragua Mission 
Station. From this experience, Clau- 
dia was more convinced that she does 
want to be a missionary doctor, and 
will enjoy this work. 

I am sure that we are all glad the 
Lord has permitted Claudia to be here, 
at SMC, preparing to do a work that 
will honor our God and prepare the 
way for his soon coming.

The 57 members of the SMC Concert 
Band went on a week-end tour to 
Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi, 
October 28-31. 

The bus, van, and Mr. William 
Taylor's car left the campus Thursday 
afternoon and arrived at Oakwood 
College just in time for supper. 

Oakwood's gymnasium was packed 
with students and people from the 
community to listen to the secular 
program the band put on. 

The band received an enthusiastic 
response from the aowd. After a 
standing ovation, the band played one 
last song before leaving the beautiful 

The band members traveled all 
night and arrived at chilly Pensacola. 
Florida at approximately 8 a.m. To the 
dismay of the students, they were 
unable to go to the beach because of 
the wind and cool weather. The band 
took a special guided tour of the 
United States S\i\p Lexington after tiie 
gigantic aircraft carrier had docked in 
the harbor. 

Friday night the SMC band 
performed at the Mobile SDA Church 
and afterwards left for the two hour 
journey to Bass Memorial Academy. 

On the way there was a slight delay 
because of a three-vehicle accident, on 

the rainy, slick roads. The SMC van 
couldn't avoid hitting a station wagon, 
which resulted in the wagon running 
into the back of the bus. The lady in 
the station wagon was taken to the 
hospital, but was released before the 
bus had left the scene of the accident, 
two hours later. The band finally 
arrived at BMA around 1:00 a.m. 

The SMC Band put on the sacred 
program for the church service at Bass 
Memorial's new church. 

The last performance on this fall 
tour was Saturday night at BMA's 
gymnasium, and for the second time 
had a standing ovatiori.

City during Thanksgiving vacation. 

Each year Malcolm Childers, Rob- 
ert Garren, and approximately 26 
students go to New York City for a 
week and receive one semester hour 
credit for it. 

This year the class will be traveling 
in two Winnebago motor homes, which 
will make the long drive more com- 
fortable. The trip costs S115, besides 
tuiton and spending money. Those 
who go say it is well worth the money 
to see the many things in New York 
City and get credit for it too. 

The class will be staying in the 

NewYork Center, which is on 46th 
Street-a half of a block away from 
Times Square. 

Some of the things that the class 
will see are the Museum of Modem 
Art, the Frick Collection, The Metro- 
politan Museum, the Ghutenheira, and 
they will have time to go to Macy's 
Thanksgiving Parade, and to the 
Bronx Zoo on Sabbath. 

Usually, on one night, everyone 
takes a ride on the Staten Island Ferry 
and another night some go up to the

In the 200 yd. freestyle relay both men

Academy team was a close second. 

The diving competition consisted of

the assertion in response to an 
editorial in the November 5 issue of 
Christianity Today, an evangelical 
fortnightly. The editorial, "Consider 
the Case for Quiet Saturdays," sug- 
gested that transportation and com- 
merce be curtailed by law on Sat- 
urdays as a means of conserving 
energy and fostering family together- 

We strongly disapprove of any 
attempt to legislate observance of any 
day of the week," said Adams. 
While we believe in the benefits of 
observing the seventh-day Sabbath, 
and concur with the editors of Chris- 
tianity Today that a day of rest is 
beneficial, Adventists do not want 
Saturday legislation any more than we 
want "blue laws" which encourage 
Sunday observance. 

"Worship, in order to be pleasing 
to God," continued Adams, "must 
spring voluntarily from the individual 
*Jeliever. We think every person 
should be free to worship on the day of 
his or her choosing, without the 
interference of the state. Anything 
short of this is a violation of the spirit 
of the First Amendment and the 
separation of church and state so dear 
to this nation." 

The idea of observing Saturday 
instead of Sunday was proposed 

ause Jews, Seventh-day Advent- 

. and others objected to an earlier 

should prove no theological hardship: 
apart from the fact that our Lord rose 
from the dead on the first day of the 
week, there is nothing in Scripture that 
requires us to keep Sunday rather than 
Saturday as a holy day."

New PE Club Organized 

D James Boyd 

The SMC Physical Education De- 
partment met Tuesday, November 2, 
to elect officers to preside over the 
P.E. Club activities for the 1976-77 
school year. 

This is the first year that the P.E. 
department will have a formerly 
organized club. A better schedule of 
activities for P.E. majors and minors is 
listed as the main reason for this. 

The officers elected are as follows: 
Cindy Dittraan, president; Ron Barts, 
vice-president: Holly Lacey, secretary- 
treasurer; Bob Benge, club pastor; and 
Steve Welch, sergeant-at-arras. 

There is a wide variety of 

planned for the coming year. These 
include camping and backpacking 
trips, tubing, a Christmans banquet, 
tours to University of Tennessee at 
Chattanooga and University of Ala- 
bama to see their P.E. facilities, the 
Physical Educators Convention in At- 
lanta, and health evangelism work in 
the local area. 

The health evangelism work will 
consist of running physical fitness 
tests in the local shopping malls. 
Blood pressure, electrocardiogram, 
and stress tests will be given, followed 
by lectures and explanations of tests 
results. This work will mainly be 
focused on academy and high school

How Can I Know God's 
Will For My Life ? 

The Shepherd Psalm 

Part One: The Lord Is My 

In the world today there are 
actually only two shepherds. There is 
the good shepherd and there is the evil 
shepherd. There is Jesus and there is 
the Devil. If we are not following one, 
then we are following the other. Jesus 
said "he that is not with me is against 
me." (Matt. 12:30). "No man can 
serve two masters: for either he will 
hate the one, and love the other, or 
else he will hold to the one and despise 
the other. Ye cannot serve God and 
mammon." (Matt 6:24) 

Jesus is the "Good Shepherd" 
(John 10:11). But we cannot say that 
He is "my shepherd" until we have 
accepted Him as Saviour and Lord over 
our lives for that Shepherd says 
"Behold I stand at the door and knock. 
If any man will hear my voice and 
open the door, 1 will come unto him 
and sup with him and he with me (Rev. 

Our Saviour paved the way to 
heaven for us 2000 years ago by 
atoning for our sins on the cross. 
Therefore we are free to follow Jesus 
and allow Him to be the Lord our 
Shepherd if we will only accept his 
invitation at the door of our hearts. 
Jesus tells us. "He that believeth in 
me hath everlasting life.. .and. ..He 
that Cometh unto me 1 will in no wise 
cast out." (John 6:47.37) 

The promise is sure that "as many 
as received Him (Jesus), to them gave 
He power to become the sons of God 
even to them that believe on his 
name" (John 1:12), and we can be 
comforted to know that "He that hath 
the son hath life everlasting " (1 John 


Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord 
of Lords, the aeator of all. and Judge 
of the Universe will be the Lord our 
Shepherd if we truly want him to be. 
Let us accept him as our Saviour and 
our life will thus be one of peace and 
securitv in His care. 

When a Shepherd, after the shed- 
ing of much blood, sweat, and tears. 
fmally raises enough money to pur- 
chase his flock of sheep, he then must 
put a mark on them so that they can be 
recognized by the other shepherds as 
to which master they belong to. 

Jesus has bought us with a price 
and we have the glorious privilege of 
carrying his mark in this life so that 
others can recognize us as his "pecul- 
iar people" (1 Pet. 2:9). Jesus speaks 
of that mark in Mark 8:34 where he 
says "If any man will follow me let him 
deny himself take up his cross and 
follow me. " Paul stated it another way 
when he said "1 am crucified with 
Christ nevertheless 1 live yet not I but 
Chrislt liveth in me. And the life 
which I now live in the flesh 1 live by 
faith in the son of God who loved me 
and gave himself for me." (Gal. 2:20) 
Let us accept Jesus and be cruci- 
fied in Him putting away self. Let our 
motto be ' "The Lord our Shepherd' ' , or 
to put it another way. "The Lord our 
Righteousness" (Jer. 23:6). If we do 
this, then His love will shine through 
us and soon others will seek to become 
sheep in the fold of the Good 

"The Lord is my Shepherd." 

The Power Of 

D Helen Stein 

r Rice 

There is no thinking person 

who can stand untouched today 
And view the world around us 
drifting downward to decay 
Without feeling deep within them 

a silent unnamed dread, 
Wondering how to stem the chaos 

that lies frightfully ahead... 
But the problems we are facing 

cannot humanly be solved 
For our diplomatic strategy 

only gets us more involved 
And our skillful ingenuity. 

our technology and science 
Can never change a sinful heart 

filled with hatred and defiance... 
So our problems keep on growing 

every hour of every day 
As man vainly tries to solve them 

in his own SELF-WILLFUL WAY... 
But man is powerless alone 

Until his own polluted soul 

For the amazing power of love 

is beyond all comprehension 

And it alone can heal this worid 

of its hatred and dissension.

DGreg Goodchild 

One of the questions heard most 
often is how to know God's wUL Many 
people want to know God's will for 
them but they don't understand how 
God wants them to know His will. 
There are so many ways to go in the 
world that they end up in a ball of 
mental, emotional, and spiritual 

But there is hope for all who have 
gone through this experience. Our 
loving Saviour has not left us to worry 
or doubt or to loose our peace of mind. 
He invites all to "Come to Me, all who 
are weary and heavy-laden, and I will 
give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, 
and learn from Me, for I am gentle and 
humble in heart; and you shall find 
rest for your souls" Matthew 11:28.29 
NASB. When we let Him have control 
of our lives, then we will begin to know 
His will for us. But the most important 
partof knowing and doing God's will is 
to surrender to Jesus. Without that 
most essential step, all other steps are 
worthless. Once you have done this, 
then Christ's representative can fulfill 
the rest of His work in you as revealed 
in John 16:7-15. 

After you have given your heart to 
Jesus there must be gron^ and 
development and a further and deeper 
understanding of God's will for you. 
Again, it is not a part of His plan for 
you to worry and fret as to how to find 
out His desires for you. God has given 
us a multitude of counsel and guidance 
on how to meet life's problems and 
how to find out what He would have us 
to do. 

There is one particular bit of 
counsel that God gives that would be 
pertinent to study. In volume five of 
the Testimonies He says, "There are 
three ways in which the Lord reveals 
His will to us. to guide us, and to fit us 
to guide others. How may we know 
His voice from that of a stranger? How 
shall we distinguish it from the voice of 
a false shepherd? God reveals His will 
to us in His word, the Holy Scriptures. 
His voice is also revealed in His 
providential workings; and it will be 
recognized if we do not seperate our 
souls from Him by walking in our own 
ways, doing according to our own 
wills, and following the promptings of 
an unsanctified heart, until the senses 
have become so confused that eternal 
things are not discerned, and the voice 
of Satan is so disguised that it is 
accepted as the voice of God. 

Another way in which God's voice 

is heard is through the appeals of His 
Holy Spirit, making impressions upon 
the heart, which will be wrought out in 
the character. If you are in doubt upon 
any subject you must first consult the 
Scriptures. If you have truly begun the 
life of faith you have given yourself to 
the Lord to be wholly His, and He has 
taken you to mold and fashion accord- 
ing to His purpose, that you may be a 
vessel unto honor. You should have an 
earnest desire to be pliable in His 
hands and to follow whithersoever He 
may lead you. You are then trusting 
Him to work out His designs, while at 
the same time you are co-operating 
with Him by working out your own 
salvation with fear and trembling." 
5 Testimonies p. 512 

In the above quotation God reveals 
three primary ways to ascertain His 
will. There is one more helpful area 
which should be taken into account 
when asking to find out God's will. 
In Exodus 18 God informs Moses 
how to implement efficiency and order 
in the wilderness government in 

dealing with the Israelites through the 
words and wisdom that God had 
imparted to Jethro, the father-in-law 
of Moses. There is much wisdom in 
the years and experience of the elders 
and leaders of the church. So when 
listening for God's voice, do not pass 
by this source of blessing. 

As we utilize these methods that 
God has given us, we will develop the 
intimate type of relationship that 
Elijah had had, and we will be able to 
know His voice. 1 Kings 19:12,13. 
Our ears will be so fmely attuned to 
Him that when He speaks we wUl hear 
the words. "This is the way, walk ye 
in it...." Isaiah 30:21. The blessings 

the Lord desires

and if we wQl but ask with a sincere 
heart, "He will speak His mystenes to

Brothers and sisters, this kind of love 
is worth knowing about. 

Are You Plugged In ? 

It's early morning at Talge Hall. 
Bob, a sleepy-eyed dorm worker, 
arises to prepare himself for his 
duty-to vacuum the hall carpet of first 
east. In his semi-conscious state he 
fumbles through his closet for some 
semblence of suitable attire. Day after 
day the routine is the same-stay up 
late, get up eariy, and plunge forth to 
do the daily tasks. 

Unlocking the closet door, he 
releases ' ' Hoover' ' from its dark 
resting place. He was relatively new 

at his job, but he recalled well all the 
steps required to accomplish his taslt'^ 
After the preliminary procedures, he 
run the nozzle over the carpet.

would do this. Then one day John, tn

One Grain Of Sand 

vHixson Church. 

Hixson Church To Perform 
Opening Services 

This Sabbath, November 13, 1976 
Hixson Seventh-day Adventist church 
will be performing the opening 
services for their new church building. 
The church location is 6424 Hixson 
Pike, Hixson, Tennessee. 

Elder Des Cummings Sr. will be 
the guest speaker for the worship hour 

and a potluck fellowship dinner will 
follow afterwards. 

For those interested in attending 
this special event the directions are as 
follows: North on Highway 153 to 
Hixson Pike (immediately past North- 
gate), then northeast on Hixson Pike 
about four miles to the church building 
on the right. 

On the oceanic bottoms of the seas 
are immense particles of sand. Each 
grain is part of the cosmic puzzle of 

Only one grain, embedded within 
an oyster, results in mounting agony 
for the poor creature. Days turn into 
weeks, weeks into months" 

The grain of sand that was of 

value changes within the shell. 

When it is opened in the radiance of 

day, an object of beauty reflects the 

rays of the golden sphere. 

For that grain of sand has trans- 
formed into an ivory pearl of symmetry 
and worth. From the embittering 
process of creation comes forth an 
object of sublime majesty. 

The jewel shimmers in the regal 
robes of majesty. Indeed, this miracle 

of change is a wonder of wonders. 

From insignificance to significance 
is the story of the grain. So is the story 
of the miracle of divine grace upon the 
heart of man. 

"But man cannot transform him- 
self by the exercise of his will. He 
possesses no power by which this 
change can be effected. The leaven- 
something wholly from without- must 
be put into the meal before the desired 
change can be wrought in it. So the 
grace of God must be received by the 
sinner before he can be fitted for the 
kingdom of glory. All the culture and 
education which the world can give 
will fail of making a degraded child of 
sin a child of heaven. The renewing 
energy must come from God. The 
change can be made only by the Holy 
Spirit. All who would be saved, higti 
or low, rich or poor, must submit to the 
working of this power." COL 96,97.

Conclusion: Sanctification 

□ Michael Kress 

In general terms, sanctification is 
viewed as the process of divine grace 
which restores the whole man to the 
image of God. It begins at justification 
and is complete at glorification. 
"Sanctification is not a work of a 
moment, an hour or a day, but of a life 
time." Acts of the Apostles, page 560. 

Sanctification is never rightly 
understood unless it is in connection 
with justification. Justification is the 
root and sanctification is the fruit. 
Justification is our relationship with 
God; we are His sons and daughters. 
Sanctification is our experience with 
God, that is, learning to live like His 
sons and daughters. 

Just as the branch cannot bear fruit 
unless it is part of the vine, neither can 
we bear the fruit of sanctification 
unless we have a firm foundation upon 
the meaning of justification and what

'n every phase of your character- 
building you are to please God. This 
you may do: for Enoch pleased Him, 
though living in a degenerate age. 
And there are Enochs in this our day. 
When the character of Christ shall be 
perfectly reproduced in His people, 
then He will come to claim them as His 

Christ Object Lessons p. 332,69 

God has done for us. Justification by 
faith alone is not an alternative for 
personal holiness, but the only basis 
for it. 

Our becoming like Jesus will be 
constant and continuous by the 
knowledge that God has already 
declared and accounted us righteous 
through the merits of Jesus. God 
pronounces the believer righteous in 
order that it may motivate him to 
become righteous. Justification by 
faith brings forth the fruit of righteous- 
ness as no other message can. 

The theme that sanctifies the 
Christian is "Christ and Him cruci- 
fied." / Corinthians 2:2. "The 
present message of justification is a 
message from God; it bears the divine 
credentials, for its fruit is unto 
holiness." Review and Herald. Sep- 
tember 3. 1889. 

To know and understand that God 
already accepts and loves us as He 
loves His own Son, that He has already 
accounted us righteous in Christ, 
motivates us to respond in love and 
contrition. "For only by love is love 
awakened." Desire of Ages, page 22. 
This is why "the enemy of man and 
God is not willing that this truth 
[Justification by faith] should be 
cleariy presented; for he knows if the 
people receive it fiiHy, his power will 
be broken." Review and Herald. 
September 3, 1887 (see also Gospel 
Workers, page 161. But how precious 
is the love of our Father, for "the Lord 
would have His people sound in the 
faith, not ignorant of so great a 
salvation so abundantly provided for 
them " / Selected Messages, page

What if you could make a million 
dollars a year without doing anything 
illegal? That seems far fetched, 
doesn't it? What if you could have 
your complete school bill paid off for 
the rest of your school years ? What if 
you could go right into the cafeteria 
and eat all the food you wanted 
without looking at the receipt and 
feeling guilty? What if we all witness 
for Christ the way we witness for our 
political candidates? 

Wow! Uidl say what I think I said? 
What if we all witness for Christ the 
way we witness for our political 
candidates? That sentence seems to 
make something click and kick inside. 
All those other "what ifs" don't seem 
to get that reaction because they are 
all far above reality for most of us here 
at college. But, that statement, what if 

we all witness for Christ the way we 
witness for our political candidates 
seems not so far from reality. 

Let's think back to a few weeks 
ago. Remember how at least 40% of 
your conversation was related to 
political views and how anxious vou 
were to get others out to vote? Think 
of the organization that was involved 
because of this enthusiasm for a 
particular candidate; the posters, 
pamphlets, buttons, and bumper 
stickers. You could go on and on. 

Think for just a moment. What if 
all this organization, time, money, and 
enthusiasm was all channeled for a 
sure winner. A candidate's name that 
we all know, Jesus Christ. How soon 
do you think His second coming would 
be? Soon, I tell you! But all this is just 
talk. But think about it for just a 
moment. What if...??? 

How Did Halloween 

Come About ? 

DGary D. Williams 

Halloween has come and gone. It 
would be well to examine its begin- 

It originated with the ancient 
Druids, the strange priests of Eng- 
land. Ghosts, witches, cats were 
incorporated into their religious life as 
the symbols of the mysterious powers 
of the unseen world. 

As the Druids faded from the 
scene, the Celts developed and adopt- 
ed many of the Druidic customs and 
beliefs. The Celts on this day held 
festivals for two of their gods, the sun 
god and the god of the dead, who they 
called Samhain which meant "sum- 


established All Hallows (all saints) 
Day on November 1. Added to this on 
the second was All Souls' Day. 

It is interesting to note the subtle, 
syncretic tendency of the church in 

Connected with these 
the autumn festival as it was called, 
huge bonfires were built on hills to 
discourage evil spirits from troubling 
the people. This time became the best 
time for divinations that dealt with 
marriage, death, health and luck; only 
on this day could the devil be 
requested for help, and the souls of the 
departed returned. 

Coming from Scotland games were 
added to the activities. Ireland 
contributed other secular customs. 

The church in the ninth century 

infusing these pagan practices into a 
religious holy day (holiday). The holy 
evening became the unholy represen- 
tation of the fears of ignorance. 

In all of this, the importance of 
October 31 is lost sight of. It was on 
October 31, 1517 that Martm Luther 
nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the 
church door; like the true Sabbath the 
Reformation Day has been neglected.

Bible Conference 

DRick Blondo 

It was 1:30 p.m. Thursday after- 
noon. The bus and van pulled out to 
begin their S'/i hour journey to Camp 
Aiamisco in Alabama. Students who 
rode, looked forward to the 1976 Bible 
Conference. When they returned 62 
hours later, their expectations were 
not disappointed.... 

Minds were exposed to a 
wondrous, glorious revelation of Jesus 
Christ and the work He is doing right 
now for us and in us. Why is He 
delaying His return? Is He waiting for 
the world to get more wicked? No. He 
could have come long before now. 
Then what's the story? 

The answers are found in a proper 
understanding of the sanctuary 
service. Many see the word '•sanc- 
tuary' and think "Oh yea, that'. 1 I 
know about the Israelites in the 
wilderness, and Soloman's temple, 
and the sacrifices, and all that stuff in 
the Old Testament," Hold on a 
minute, The sanctuary service is not a 
concept that is to be confined to the 
pagesof the Old Testament. It is not 
something to be forgotten with the 
death of Jesus on the cross. The 
sanctuary service is a now thing. It is 
going on right now in Heaven with 
Jesus as our High Priest. 

Isn't it logical to state that it would 
be well for us to understand what 
Jesus is doing for us rigAr now.? Sure, 
we realize what He did for us on the 

cross -■ offering Himself 
Sacrifice so that we may not suffer the 
eternal penalty for our sm (That s 
"justification" by the way). But what 
is He doing now? 

Elder W.D. Frazee of Wildwood 
and Elder Lorenzo Grant of SMC 
brought messages on the sanctuary 
and total commitment respectively. 
Next week, you will have an op- 
portunity to hear their concepts pre- 
sented via an article in this paper. 

Why don't we have a proper 
understanding of the sanctuary? 
Because Satan wants it that way. Bed 
like for peoples' attention to be 
diverted from where it should be (see 
Early Wrirings 54-56). "The condition 
of the unbelieving Jews illustrates the 
condition of the careless and un- 
believing among professed Christians, 
who are willingly ignorant of the work 
of our merciful High Priest. In the 
typical service (shadow), when the 
high priest entered the most holy 
place, all Israel was required to gather 
about the sanctuary and in the most 
solemn manner humble their souls 
before God, that they might receive 
the pardon of their sins and not be cut 
off from the congregation. How much 
more essential in this antitypical 
(reality) Day of Atonement that we 
understand the work of our High Priest 
and know what duties are required of 
us." Great Controversy. 430-431. 

What's Happening 

In Religious Activities ? 


DGreg Goodchild 

This year the students of Southern 
Missionary College are responding to 
the love of Jesus and are sharing His 
love in many ways. 

The Men's Jailband Project has 
been going well under the leadership 
of Ron Honeycutt they have been 
blessed as they fulfill the conditions of 
the promise in Matthew 25:34-40. 

The Women's Jailband group is 
also being blessed as the Holy Spirit is 
using Lynn Bramerd to lead out in this 
group. This is a small group of 
dedicated people who the Lord has 
called for this special ministry and if 
the Lord calls you to take time to 
comfort one of His sheep, please 
contact Lynn at 4913. 

An active and growing group is the 
Story Hour program which is being led 
by Randy Mills. There has been three 
groups going out each Sabbath and 
through God's grace another group is 
going to start in Ringgold. God has 
certainly blessed this program, as He 
bless all programs and people when 
He is placed at the head. 

The children at Bonny Oaks are 
happy that the students at SMC still 
want to take part in a 'big-brother', 
'big-sister' program. As God contin- 
ues to work through the leadership of 
Terri Gulbrandsen and Steve Gambrel 
more of the love of Jesus will be 
revealed by His students. It is 
a rewarding activity when a person is 
made happy by the simple act of 
sharing a little time. 

Another group is Leaves of Au- 
tumn. Last year Leaves participated in 
gathering literature and sharing it in 
an organized way. This year Rick 
Blondo and his associates are follow- 
ing through with the program and 

have given away at least 1,500 pieces 
of literature. Leaves also had an 
important job in the Ingathering 
campaign by supplying the books to be 
handed out. There will be more 
literature to be distributed, in innova- 
tive ways, especially at Caroling time. 
Out at Rock Springs. Warten Auld 
and Steve Torgerson have reported 
that the Lord is blessing the area and 
the church members. There are many 
activities that are in action, and some 
in planning, such as smoking clinics 
and cooking classes. 

Besides the established programs, 
new ones have been developing. As 
student, interest increases, Larry Mil- 
ler has been leading out in the Bible 
studies, and has reported that there 
are so many people desiring studies 
that he and his team have had to stop 
recruiting studies, and are concentra- 
ting on following through on these 
opportunities. Larry would like to talk 
to people interested in giving studies 
so that another area may be entered 
and workedon. 

Another new program is the First 
Offenders Program. This is a Com- 
munity Service program in which 
concerned people volunteer to be- 
friend a yound man or woman who is 
on probation for their first offense. 
People who feel moved by fhe Holy 
Spirit to witness through friendship 
contact Steve Gambrel at 236-4587 

For those who like to work with 
elderiy people should get in touch witn 
Adrianne Dye at 4502, who is in charge 
of the Adopt-a-Grandparent program. 
The Lord has given her a special love 
for the elderly people, and their 
families, at the Hamilton County 
Nursing Home. Adrianne and those 
who go with her are interested in 
making friends, cheering up the day, 

DTim Crosby 

What does Paul mean by the expres- 
sion 'out of the body ' in II Corinthians 
2:4 --"I knew a man whether in the 
body or out of the body. I cannot tell 
....that was caught up into paradise"? 
I was confronted this summer by 
several non-Seventh- day Adventists ^ 
who said that this proves that the soul 
can leave the body. 

This is evidently just figurative 
language for a visionary state. Paul 
was talking about himself here, and he 
didn't know whether he had just had a 
dream or whether he had just had a 
dream or whether he had actually been 
taken bodily to heaven. Paul is not 
talking about a state where the 'spirit' 
or 'soul' leaves the body. This is 
called 'astral projection' in the occult, 
and is a part of heathen belief in parts 
of India and Africa. But compare I 
Corinthians 5:3 where Paul says that 
he is absent (from the Corinthians) in 
body, but present in spirit' . Obviously 
Paul's spirit did not leave his body to 
go to the Corinth, else how did he 
write the epistle? 

We still use this expression today. 
"I'll be with you in spirit," we say. 
Compare the lyrics of a popular 
Christmas song: / // be home for 
Christmas if only in my dreams. 

By the way. the same goes for n 
Corinthians 5:8, where Paul says that 
he would rather be "absent from the 
body and present with the Lord." 
Paul hopes to live to see the return of 

Christ and to be translated without 
seeing death (this is the meaning of 
verse four, to be "clothed upon", i.e., 
transformed, glorified, without having 
to be "unclothed', i.e. dying), in which 
case he would be freed from his 
mortal, sinful body (I Corinthians 
15:53) to be present with the Lord in 
the resurrection body. 

Sometimes I Corinthians 15;50 is 
also quoted to prove that heaven is 
populated with disembodied spirits. 
It reads, "flesh and blood cannot 
inherit the Kingdom of God." No^ 
the way to solve a difficulty like this is 
to look up the word (or words) in 
question, in this case the word 
"flesh", in an unabridged concor- 
dance to see what the author uses 
them to mean. Let the Bible writer 
define his own words. If you were to 
do this you would discover that in 
Romans 8:9 Paul tells the Christians in 
Rome that they are "not in the flesh, 
but in the spirit." Is Rome fdled with 
disembodied Christians? No, it is 
evident in Romans Seven and Eight 
that Paul uses the terra "flesh" to 
represent the old sinful way of life, the 
fleshly nature. It is this that cannot 
inherit the kingdom. 
[If you have any Bible text. Spirit of 
Prophecy quote, or practical aspect of 
Christianity that you would like an- 
swered, then write it out and drop it in 
one of the red Southern Accent boxes 
around campus and Tim will tackle it.)

Important Old Tablets 
Discovered In Syria 

I DMike Lombardo 

In the realms of archaeology a dis- 
[ covery was begun in 1974 (and contin- 
ued tlirougii 1975) wiiich has been 
acclaimed by many of the leaders of 
t that field to be the greatest find of the 
century. The magnitude of this find is 
even said to have surpassed the 
importance placed upon the Dead Sea 
Scrolls of 1947. 

Two SMC Religion professors, 
Douglas Bennett and Jerry Gladson, 
had the opportunity of attending a 
convention on October 28-30 in St. 
Louis, Missouri. There for the first 
1 America details of this dis- 

covery were brought forth. 

The convention was one of the 
annual meetings that the Biblical 
Literature Society holds each year for 
the purpose of sharing the results of 
current research in the Biblical and 
Theological areas. 

Various research papers on several 
different areas were brought forth to 
be discussed through the course of 
these meetings. But one area of con- 
cern brought about, by far, the 
greatest amount of attention: The 
finds of two Italian archaeologists, 
Paolo Matthiae and Giovanni Pettin- 
ato. Their discovery has been named

D Sharon Webster 

The Heritage Singers USA appear- 
ed in concert in the Collegedale 
Church, November 13, at 5:00 P.M., 
for the vespers program. 

This gospel-singing group has won 
national recognition with their unusual 
way of presenting the message of 
Jesus Christ. 

The Heritage Singers are the 
largest traveling, gospel group in the 
country today. Their home base is at 
Placerville, California, where they will 
spend a few winter months singing 
and doing some recordings for an 

Elder Gary Patterson welcomed 
everyone to Vespers and invited the 
many people standing to sit in the 
choir loft. Even after the choir loft was 
full, there were many standing in the 
back and side aisles. 

The singers began the concert 
singing "In This Quiet Moment," and 
in the middle of the song Dick Bird, 

lead singer, played the trumpet. 

After the second number. Max 
Mace, the founder of the Heritage 
Singers, began the introduction of his 
group. There are ten singers, piano 
player, lead guitar player, bass guitar- 
ist, sound system man, and of course, 
the bus driver. 

The program consisted of 10 songs 
the first half, an intermission, and 8 
songs for the last half of the concert. 

During the mtennission, MaJ 
Mace explained to the audience that 
thev were not there to provide enter- 
tainment, but to share the message 
fiod had given them. 

Tllere was not an admission 
charge. Instead, they took up a love 
offering, which is '/. of their support. 
Three-fourths of their support comes 
ftom record sales. 

At the end of this concert, there

sponsors." Thus the Student Associa- 
tion talent program began its Sunday 
evening performance of November 14. 
A futuristic convention of delegates 
observed candidate's representations 
of specific parties and voted for the 
most favorable portrayal. Balloons 
formed an abstract space odyssey

from the convention floor, the opposite 
side of the stage. 

Various nominators, alias Dorothy

with a Uve microphone.

the only non-musical executions. 

■Te audience participated with the 
judging of contestants by voting for a 

grand prize winner. Rick Sharp enter-

WSMC Receives Grant 

DVolker Henning 

This year WSMC-FM is receiving a 
grant of $25,000 from the Corporation 
for Public Broadcasting (CPB). 

CPB receives its funds from the 
United States Congress. It then 
passes these funds on to the Public 
Broadcast Service (PBS), National 
Public Radio (NPR) and member 

PBS and NPR produce and network 
programs to member radio and televi- 
sion stations. WSMC receives numer- 
ous programs from National Public 
Radio which it incorporates into its 

This year grant funds from CPB are 
considerably more than those for the 
last year. These funds are given for 
the manager's salary, for the pay of 

people which are involved in program- 
ming, for advertising in newspapers 
and for promotion. 

Since this is a federal grant, 
WSMC and Southern Missionary Col- 
lege are continually watching the 
relationship between the Corporation 
and WSMC. The station management 
is watching CPE's involvement so that 
they don't commit themselves to 
following a policy which is in conflict 
with the station's policy. 

These grants from the CPB are 
only available to non-commercial pub- 
lic service stations such as WSMC; 
most of the rest of WSMC's support 
comes from the College. A good share 
of these funds are then returned to the 
college again because it is paid out for 
student labor. 



Several people attended the Pana- 
sonic equipment show which featured 
new industrial and consumer products 
before returning to SMC Tuesday.

Gains Ideas at Committee 

The City regrets the i 
to motorists and to those merchants 
whose businesses have been adversely 
affected during the time the road over 
Hickman Hill has been closed. We 
want to have the road open if at all 
possible, but one of the considerations 
willbe the way people drive! If people 
continue to disregard the signs and the 
police officers warnings, it will have to 
be closed more than had been plan- 
ned. The 20 mph speed limit over the 
hill has been posted because of the 
lack of guard rails, the ongoing 
construction, and increasing danger in 
traveling this road. The City does not 
want to give tickets, but warns this 
speed limit will be strictly enforced 
and where necessary, tickets will be 
given for speeding or reckless driving. 

When you see the barricades and

to drive through. There have been 

considerable problems with motorists 

disregarding these barricades and 

signs. The road will be opened every 

possible opportunity, but when it is 

closed, please do not attempt to drive 


Persons should not walk up to the 
site of the new road construction on 
Hickman Hill as it presents a very 
great hazard. There are falling rocks, 
there will be blasting from time to 
time. Machine operators cannot be 
aware of persons standing directly 
under the mountain. Rocks and dirt 
are likely to be pushed off and grave 
injury incurred. So. view the con- 
work from a distance. 

Important Old Tablets 

the Tel Mardik Tablets. 

This archaeological discovery was 
found where the sight of ancient Elba 
once was located and where Modem 
Syria is today. 

At this site over 15.000 cuneform 
tablets have been gathered which is 
the largest collection in history. These 
tablets have been dated before the 
civilization of Abraham and the Patri- 
archs to the 24th century B.C. which is 
over 4000 years ago. 

The significance of the Tel Mardik 
tablets is seen in the dating given to 
them for they have been thus classed 

as the oldest know cuneform records 
from Palestine. These tablets have 
opened up the whole mysterious era of 
history before the Hebrews arrived in 

The language of these tablets has 
been given the name "Paleocanaan- 
ite" for they are very close in their 
literary form to the Hebrew language. 

It is purported that these tablets 
will help Biblical scholars to under- 
stand not only the language of the Old 
Testament but also the culture of the 
Hebrews themselves. 

In this collection such works as 
commercial terts, business teirts, a 
flood story, and theological texts have 
been found. 

Because of its background to the 
Hebrew civilization it has been ad- 
claimed to be one of the most revolu- 
tionary finds of the century for its 
impact will be far reaching. Research 
on these tablets will involve decades of 

What is the importance to this that 
Bible students place on the discovery? 
These tablets will probably confirm the 
historicity of Abraham, Jacob, and the 
Patriarchal period which may quiet 

many critics. It will also help Bible 
students to understand the idioms, 
language, and the cultures of the Old 
Testament. In other words these 
tablets found in Elba will probably 
help to further confirm and elucidate 
the Hebrew Scriptures.

Dead Mikes Need Love too 

Dear Sir: 

I really appreciated the fine talent on 
the program this last Sunday night. 
The performances all deserved prizes. 
We also had, throughout the program, 
a demonstration that the art of working 
with Sound Reinforcement systems is 
about dead here. Not intending to be 
critical of any of the specific people 
involved. I'd like to mention some 
ways to get your message-what ever it 
is--through a PA system. 

1. Use microphones only for what 
they were designed for--carrying 
sound that was created by something 
else. Don't hit them or blow in their 
faces. Talk, sing-even play at them. 

2. When you begin to use a 
microphone, first establish your work- 
ing distance and then stay with that 
distance. How far? Two to six inches, 
perhaps farther. If your "P's" and 
"T's" make pops or bangs, move the 
miaophone farther away or higher. If 
you get ringing or howling noises. 

3. Remember that most Pa 
systems are operated by people. If you 
want to be heard, don't play games 
with them. Don't change microphones 
unless the program calls for it. And 
don't make repeated or rapid changes 
unless you have prearranged with the 
operator. He'll do his best. And if you 
aren't heard, you'll be the one who 
looks bad. 

4. Many microphones have holes 
or "rib" structures in them. If you see 
any orifice in the side of the micro- 
phone that might admit air, don't 
cover it up. You'll probably make 
yourself sound funny. Simply hold the 
microphone at another place. Most of 
our hand-held microphones at SMC 
are like this. 

If you are a Theology major, you might 
just clip this. And check with Sister 
Ellen on the importance of the voice in 
the work of the Gospel.

Skirt Length Issue Raised Again 

Dear Editor, 

Regarding Mr. Owen's letter about 
Mr. Mclntyre's letter concerning long- 
er skirt lenelhs: 

Side by side, these two letters to 
which i refer do present two sides of a 
"coin". And when the coin is flipped, 
one side will make somebody a winner 
and the other side will make him a 
loser. The ladies can determine how 
the toss falls. Men may speak 
confidently of some self-acquired abil- 
ity to defy temptation, but the Word of 
God says, "A wise man sees evil 
coming and avoids it; the fool is rash 
and presumptVous" Pro. 14:16 JB. 
There is no such thing as becoming 
resistant to sin by progressive expo- 
sure to temptation. This only leads to 
insensitivity towards sin. Victory over 

the tendency to sin is proportional to 
your abiding relationship to Jesus--not 
by psychological gymnastics. 

Ladies, a look at the time and world 
in which you live shows which of the 
two great Unseen Powers is using 
exposure of the body as part of his 
campaign. The length and fulness of 
your clothes will either guard your 
brothers thoughts, or cause him to 

May I make a suggestion to those 
fellows who insist that life is dull 
unless you can scrutinize the land- 
scape. As you "journey down the road 
of life" and consider the "scenery", 
may you be satisfied with beholding 
the simple grass of the field which 
your Heavenly Father has clothed with 
lilies. Matt. 6;30 „ „ ,

Campfire Vespers 

Held in Ringgold 

' "gainst thee. Psalms 119:11 KJV 

D Johnny Lazor 

, A group of 37 young people, mostly 
SMC students, met last Friday, for a 
vege-link and marshmaUow roast, and 
a fruit salad supper followed by a 
campfire vespers service. 

It was held at the foot of White Oak 
Mountain in Ringgold, Georgia, where 
logs had been set up for a campfire 
" circle and a cross had been erected for 
1 spiritual effect. 

After a hearty meal, Dennis and 
|Dave Canther and Bob Hillier led a 
I song sevice with accordians and 

John Lazor. the host of the eve- 
ning, gave a short talk following the 
song service. His message relayed the 
thoughts that the Sabbath is a sign not 
only of creation, but also of redemp- 
tion. Then personal testimgnies were 
given by those who felt moved to do 

Small groups consisting of three or 
four persons prayed together, after- 
which the service was closed when all 
joined hands in a circle around the 
campfire and sang Blest Be the Tie 
That Binds.

The warm rays of the mellowed sun 
streamed through the tree by the pond 
as gold fish happily played tag. One

Green ferns and tall tropical palm

of the waterfall. Debbie Gainer tucked

A few months later Debbie picked

possibility of creating a picture of the

Maybe it is uncanny luck or maybe 
it is a talent for writing that Debbie L^ 
received more than S80 in the past 
year for her published creations. Soon

Majoring in English, Miss Gainer 
is attending college for the first time. 
Her ability brought her to Dr. Hamm's 
attention, her freshman composition 
instructor, who is channeling Debbie's 
talent and directing her thoughts for a 
mature and accomplished poetess. 

Debbie attended Far Eastern Aca- 
demy in Singapore for three years. 
Her father was transferred to Ham-

Debbie enjoys literature classes the 
most. "I like to read the poetry of 
other writers, their expressions on life.

for creating my own poetry." The 
more familiar a person is with other 
ways of expressing a feeling, the 
easier it is to express oneself.

The information you need to know 
for your first static line jump can be 
learned in four hours. After learning 
and practicing the basic skills, you are 
ready for your first jump. 

When you take that giant step at 
3000 feet you start counting 1001' 
1002, 1003, 1004, 1005, then check the 
canopy. Don't forget to pray, thanking 
God the parachute did open. Next the 
hands go for the toggles which direct 
the way you will fall. The maneuvers 
are simple; to go right, you pull down 

the right one, and to go left, you pull 
down the left one. 

It is important to always notice the 
wind sock below on the ftound, for this 
tells vou which way the wind is 
blowing. To go fast you get the wind 
at your back and to drop straight down 
you face the wind. You must 
constantly check your relationship to 
the target. By manuevering the 
toggles accurately you land exactly 
where you want to.

to look down, you will flinch you legs 
and land on a weak ankle support. The 
proper way is to look straight ahead 
and roll right when your feet hit the 
ground. The speed at which you strike 
is the same as if you had jumped off 
the top of a car. The landing is really 
very light.

looking over the flock seeing if they

should feel proud to say: "I shall not

young boy, after reading this verse 
paraphrased it in a beautiful way when 
he said; "The Lord is my shepherd, 1 
don't need anything else." But is that 
really the case with us? Can we 
actually say; I don't need anything 

David was obviously not always 
content, having all the material things 
that he needed. There were many 
times when privation haunted him and 
tribulation beared down upon him 
from every angle. But he still could 
say that he was content in the care of 
the Lord, our Shepherd.

Turkey Day Vs. JhonksgW'tng 

Thanksgiving holds many special 
memories for me. I well recall my 
father getting up before sunrise to get 
the cooking underway. The aroma of 
the slowly roasting turkey flooded the 
house. My aunts and uncles would 
begin to arrive and by 1:00 we'd be all 
set to "gobble" a meal that rivaled 
that of the finest restuarant. 

After sufficiently stuffing our- 
selves, we'd enjoy the football game as 
ttie women cleaned up and com- 
menced with their gabathon. Once the 
relatives left, a long nap was the 
capstone of a wonderful day. Upon 
reminiscing on those gatherings, i 
shall forever remember them for the 
closeness and happiness we'd share as 
a family. 

Today, most Americans hold these 
same memories as dear. In fact, it is 

commonly called Turkey Day".

□Douglas Bennett 

Athough justification by faith apart 
from any works of man is the 
touchstone of the gospel, it must be 
carefully balanced with santification. 
To fail to maintain a delicate equili- 
brium between these nvo is to expose 
the gospel to a serious perversion. 

Paul, the chief exponent of justifi- 
cation by faith apart from works, also 
recognized the importance of holy 
living as an essential part of Christian 
living when he urged the believers "to 
present their bodies a living sacrifice, 
holy and acceptable to God" (rom. 
12:1). Elsewhere he admonished the 
justified ones to flee fornication (1 Cor. 
6:18). and to cleanse themselves from 
the defilements of the flesh (2 Cor. 
7:1). To the Thessalonians, Paul 
equated God's will and sanctifica- 
tion, which he declared involved 
abstaining from fornication (IThess. 
4;3) and "abstaining from the appear- 
ance of evil." (1 Thess. 5:22). This 
insistence on holy living was also 
shared by other apostolic writers. 
James, believed to be the brother of 
Jesus, insisted that if justification does 
not produce good works it is dead 
(James 2:17) and John declared that 
the justified ones need to practice self- 
purification (1 John 3:3). 

Paul, nor the other apostles, saw 
any contradiction between justification 
and sanctification. Although sanctifi- 
cation does not initiate salvation, it 
must be said emphatically that sancti- 
fication is connected with our salva- 
tion. Paul could declare "I determined 
not to know anything among you, save 
Jesus Christ and him crucified" ')1 
Cor. 2:2), yet he did not deny the need 
for holy living. He saw no contradic- 
tion at this point. 

In moving from justification to 
sanctification one can fall into a 
serious trap of assuming that both are 
rigidly separate entities. Therefore it 
is vital for each to understand that in 
shifting from justification to sanctifi- 
cation that the justified one is not 
leaving the sphere of faith, and is now 
operating on his own independent 
power. If this should be the case, 
sanctification would then be described 
as devout deeds performed by the pre- 

viously justified individual. 

It is easy to discern that the 
Scriptures are intolerant of such a 
dichotomy; "but ye were sanctified, 
but ye were justified in the name of the 
Lord Jesus Christ";(l Cor. 6:11) the 
believers "are sanctified in Christ 
Jesus." (1 Cor. 1:2, Acts 20:32, Acts 
26:18); John admonishes "he that is 
righteous, let him do righteousness 
still" (Rev. 22:11). 

The Scriptures call the justified 
Christian to holiness of living and good 
deeds; however, the evil to be avoided 
and denied is to believe that one is 
justified by the righteousness of 
Christ, but that they are sanctified by 
their own meritorius living. Early in 
the Biblical Canon God sought to 
clarify the relationship between holi- 
ness and God when He spoke. "Sanc- 
tify yourselves therefore, and be ye 
holy; for I am Jehovah your God. And 
ye shall keep my statutes, and do 
them; I am Jehovah your God who 
sanctifies you." (Lev. 20:7,8) 

When God commands obedience 
and holiness, He is not introducing a 
new type of relationship between Him 
and His people, but to the contrary, he 
is asking the individual to be ever 
conscious of his dependance upon 
God. This point was clarified through 
Ezekiel: "And I will put my Spirit 
within you, and cause you to walk in 
my statutes, and ye shall keep my 
ordinances and do them." (Ezekiel 

Sanctification is basically the con- 
tinuation of the experience brought to 
the sinner through justification. Jus- 
tification is born out of faith that is 
directed to the Divine Source, 
sanctification is the cultivation of this 
grace bestowed. It is a continuing 
faith relationship with Christ that 
brings the life-giving power of the 
Spirit so that we are enabled to do His 
will. "He works in us to will and to do 
of His good pleasure" (Phil. 2:13). 
Sanctification is the Christian life that 
feeds on justification. Therefore, 
working out our own salvation never 
means doing this in our own power, 
but it means working out one's 
salvation with an awareness of depen- 
dence upon God.

to God. As special as those past

point. God was conspicuously absent. 
How is it with you? Are you 
experiencing the special friendship 
with Jesus that would make it possible 
for you to truly thank Him for all He 
has done and is doing for you. Are you

Off To Honduras 

□Greg Goodchild 

Going to Honduras last year was 
one of the monst interesting things 
that could have happened to me. 
When we stepped onto the plane for 
Honduras all the fears and excitem.ent 
began to well up in our stomachs as we 
thought of what we would see, who we 
would meet, and what we would do. 
When we arrived in Tigruigalpa. 
the capital of Honduras, our first step 
was customs. We didn't know what 
they would do with our six jars of 
peanut butter or our Spirit of Prophecy 
library, if they would count it as 
contraband or let it go through. The 
customs officials were military per- 
sonnal and all I could think about were 
the movies I had seen about the Latin 

American countries and how they 
would fake advantage of us. But like 
in all good mission stories the Lord 
brought us through without difficulty 
while people ail around us were 
getting their luggage examined with a 
critical eye and many of the things thai 
they had purchased in the United 
States were confiscated because of 
certain customs violations. (jj^ 

When we finally got out of the ^ 

airport we were met by Elder Jim 
Zackrison, the president of the Hondu- 
ras mission. He informed us that the 
first place that we were to go to was to 
a little hospital up in the mountains. 
We were wondering why the Lord 
would want us there when we were 
supposed to be in the Bay Islands on

Beloved, Let Us Love One Another 

DDon Booth 

1 have often asked nyself the 
question, "How have I failed my 
friends in helping them to grow 
spiritually?" 1 am sure that we, as 
Christians, will agree that love is a 
vital element in the development of a 
person's character and to the indivi- 
dual's happiness. Theeffect oflove on 
both the giver and the recipient can 
have limitless results. 

Love cannot live without action and 
every act increases, strengthens, and 
extends it. True love does not work for 
reward; God has ordained that great 
gain will be the result of every labor of 

Love can be quiet in its operation, 
yet strong in its power to overcome 
many barriers. We should let nothing 
divert us from our God-approven 
goals. Untill we have sufficient 


evidence to see that God has given us 
additional work to accomplish, we 
should continue to work toward them 
faithfull with humility. 

Love enabled all of Christ's ac- 
tions. We are not commanded to do 
unto ourselves what we wish others 
would do unto us, but we are to do 
unto others what we would wish them 
to do unto us under like circumstances. 
We should cherish and cultivate love, 
for its influence and origin is divine. 

We are most certainly redeemed by 
grace and the blood of Jesus Christ, 
but our works will show to what extent 
earthly treasures have our affections. 
In Satan's temptations it is his purpose 
to make the world appear attractive. 
Through some of the riches and 
woridly honor he has bewitching 
power to gain the affections of even 
the most professed Christians. We 
can be sustained by Christ's enduring 

might. Under strong temptation, i 

Do you think tha\ 
Adventist policeman 
to kill in an extreme 

Yes. 1 believe a policeman has that 
right to kill if it is unavoidable. 
According to Romans 13:3,4 a legal 
authority is a minister of God who has 
a right to wield, and use, a weapon to 
punish wrongdoers. (Remember, next 
time you are stopped for speeding, 
that you are talking to a minister of 

But what about the sixth com- 
mandment? It is probably better to 
translate Exodus 20:13, "Thou shalt 
not murder", with the New English 
Bible and others, rather than "Thou 
Shalt not kill." in Hebrew there are 
several words for "kill", but the one 
used in the commandment is an 
uncommon one, occurring in only 
about six other passages, which seems 
to have the meaning of murdering on a 
one-to-one basis, as opposed to, say. 
killing in war, for which an entirely 
different Hebrew word is used. The 
sixth commandment, strictly inter- 
preted, does not forbid killing in war or 
in legal retribution. For this the 
principle is "whoever sheds man's 
blood, by man his blood shall be shed" 
(Genesis 9:6). 

In fact, I think that the Golden rule 
demands that a potential kUler be 
killed. It says, "Do unto others as you 
would have them do unto you." Now 
since you would want a policeman to 
protect you, as a potential victim, from 
the kUler by killing him. so should you. 
as a policeman, kUl to protect another 

But there is another way to apply 

the golden rule which I think is even 
more valid. As a Christian, 1 would 
rather be murdered than be a murder- 
er. In fact, if 1 were to relinquish 
Christianity, and become an outlaw, I 
can say now (although I'm sure I 
wouldn't say it then, but if I were 4p. 
leave Christianity I wouldn't be in my 
right mind, and so my formerly 
expressed opinion would still hold), 
that I would hope that some policeman 
would destroy me before I had the

What shall it profit a man if he 
gain the whole world and lose his 
soul?" How much of a sacrifice are we 
making to deepen our own Christian 
experience and to encourage our 
brothers and sisters on campus? 
Truly, any sacrifice we make sinks into 
insignificance when compared to the 
sacrifice Christ made on our behalf. 
How can we not help but love Him? 
He gave up all Heaven to cleanse us 
from all unrighteousness so that we 
may, through the merits of His 
righteousness, be fitted for Heavenly 

May we be helping one another to 
shape characters after the divine 
example of Jesus Christ. Our time 
should be spent in relieving need and 
suffering without wasting it on frivo- 
lous activities which are often not the 
will of God. We need to be takers 
of the divine nature and be stirred with 
deep pity and compassion as was 

We should rejoice that we have the 
privilege of assisting God in salvation 
of men. Time is rapidly drawing to a 
close and souls are perishing. The 
Lord has given to every man his work, 
and the Holy Angels are standing 
ready to cooperate with us in perform- 
ing this work. May God forgive us that 
we have not fully cooperated with Him 
in helping to save a dying world. 
Truly being an ambassador for Christ 
is a solemn and important work. He 

speaks to people through us u 
superintends His work through ih! 
instrumentality of His children Non 
of us are excused from this hiph 
calling. Each of us has a part to a„ 
according to our capacity. May each 
one do it with conscientious fidelitv 
May the work be done with the sole 
intention of glorifying God and assist 
ing Him who made every sacrifice to 
save souls from ruin. 

May the same spirit that prompted 
our pioneers touch our hearts and 
kmdle them with motivation to work 
for our dear Saviour. Soon the day will 
come when "there will be no more 
death, neither sorrow, nor crying 
neither shall there be any more pain- 
for the former things will have passed 
away." Rev. 21:4 

The Bargain 

DSam Soler 

Some ask for a million dollar morning 
to accept that God is real: 
"Let Him wake me with a check. 
Something I can inspect- 
I'll exhibit my zeal!" 


If air was got by money 

And sunlight was for sale. 

And warmth was lent on bail. 
I wonder what this senseless lot 
would have to boldly say- 
If every bit of life was bought. 
And how much would they pay? 

Off To Honduras 

niinued from page '/ 


the other side of the country. But 
every time we would get upset as to 
the way things were going, we would 
remember that because we had given 
ourselves to God to do with us as He 
say fit; We didn't have to worry about 
telling God how to run His program. 

On our second day in Honduras we 
arrived at the Valley of the Angels 
hospital. We soon found out why the 
Lord wanted us up in the mountains 
instead ofout on the ocean. There was 
a nursing instructor from Puerto Rico 
and an American doctor with whom we 
could share our love of Jesus. To be 
called away from the United States to 
shares one's testimony with a German 
lady (who taught nursing in a SDA 
Puerto Rican school) in the Honduran- 
ian mountains was absolutely fantas- 
tic! What a God it is that we serve. 

The Lord moved us out and got us 
headed for the island of Guanaja in the 
Bay Islands. The people are of English 

Lord, come into my thoughts. 
Speak softly to my mind. 
And tell me of that road 
Which seems so hard to find. 

I turn to You because 
I know You'll understand 
How it feels to be alone - 
Come and take my hand. 

Lord come and take ray hand. 

And lead my life again 

Not the way I'm going. 

And not the way I've been.

The major industries on this island 
are fishing for shrimp and lobster. 
The money made from these two 
industries is phenomenal. Because of 
the large amounts of money that can 
be made by unskilled labor, in these 
industries, there is a continuous influi 
of people arriving at Guanaja looking 
for work. Because of all the money 
that is in the hands of the people, there 
is another industry which caters to the 
people and that is the bars. Co the 
Key of Guanja there were21 bars open

One Sabbath jusi oetore we len w 
come back to the States God taught me 
my most important lesson as a 
missionary. To get to church we had to 
take a 3 mile ride from the Key to the 
island and then a 2 mile hike to the 
church. On our way back, aft^^ 
services.I finally realized what mis- 
sionary work was all about. To be a 
missionary is to do those everyday 
chores and activities that God aoi 
called you to do, with the desire to 
glorify God by doing them as well as 
possible. Ifthis is true, then anypia«

Family Life Workshop To Be Held 
By College And Church 

DJerry Dick Lien 

The SMC Executive Board during 
the course of its session held on 
Tuesday, November 23. voted that a 
Family Life Workshop shall be held as 
a joint venture of the college and the 
Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist 
church. The workshop will be con- 
ducted by selected faculty of SMC. 
The steering committee for the pro- 
posed workshop is composed of the 
following members: Dr. Ed Lamb,

The college board also took into 
consideration a request by the me- 
tropolis of Collegedale to build a new 
intersection replacing the one in 
current existence near the McKee 
Baking Company's plant #1 entering 
the campus. The present intersection 
has a somewhat less than savory 
reputation safety-wise. SMC's partici-

board. The total cost to the college wUl

Pennies Multiply For Leaves Of Autumn 

O David Brooks 

Ms. Brenda Alexander, former 
research analyst for the Tennessee 
Legislative Counsel Committee, spoke 
at a meeting of the Southern Mission- 
ary College Home Economics Club. 

She spoke on the legislative pro- 
cess and how it relates to the 
professional home economist. 

Ms, Alexander said that she ac- 
quired her interest in politics while 
working as a journalist during the 1972 
state campaigns. 

She said that 24 out of a random 

100 bills she examined at the last 
session of the Tennessee legislature, 
including bills on aging, child abuse, 
and mental illness, directly concern 
home economists who are interested in 
the family unit. 

Alexander urged the club members 
to get involved in the legislative 
system. "The best way to get things 
done is to get inside and work through 
the existing institutions," she said. 

Alexander was introduced to the 
club by Ms. Thelma Cushman, Chair- 
woman of the SMC home (

According to Rick Blondo, Presi- 
dent of Leaves of Autumn, this drive 
brought in approximatly $200.00 with 
more still coming in. This money will 
be used to purchase paperback copies 

of Desire of Ages which will be gift 
warpped. Religious Off-campus Act- 
ivities will give these out when 
Caroling this week. 

"The idea for doing it, ' ' said 
Blondo, "was to be able to give in- 
stead of receive." He said he would 
like to thank all volunteers who helped 
and those students who contributed. 
"I hope that all will pray that these 
books will be placed in the right hands 
and that the Holy Spirit will inspire die 
people to read them," said Blondo.

slides caused by heavy rains. Machin-

Art Class Tours New York City

Saturday night for their trip to New

After a long 17 1/2 hour drive, the 
students arrived in New York City, 
ready to see the many sites of the city. 

As soon as everyone had unloaded 
the campers and eaten supper, a group 
rode the subway to the Worid Trade 
Center, while others just walked 
around the city and Times Square. 

Monday was spent at the Museum 

of Modem Art, looking at paintings 
done by such artists as Monet, 
Picasso, and Matisse. 

On Tuesday the group went to the 
Whitney Museum in the morning and 
in the afternoon rode a bus to the 
Cloisters-a monastery made into a 

Many students had never ridden in 
a taxi cab, so they caught taxis in order 
to arrive at the Metropolitan Museum 
of Modem Art on Wednesday. That 
night some went to see a ballet while 
others went to Madison Square Gar- 

A few brave souls woke up early 
Thursday maorning so they would get 
a good place to view the televised 

Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. 

Right after the big parade, every- 
one went to the Guggenheim Museum, 
a magnificent building designed by 
World-known architect. Frank Lloyd 
Wright. Later, the group had a 
Thanksgiving dinner at the SDA New 
York Center on 46th Street. 

Thursday night after the huge 
meal, some of the SMC students took a 
chilly ride on the Staten Island Ferry. 

The last museum seen on this week

Dear Editor, 

I just wanted to commend the 
Academic Activities Committee on the 
fme work they are doing. The short 
movies they have in the banquet room 
at lunch on Friday are just what a 
student needs to close out the week. 

Other students must agree because 
every week 1 have a hard time finding 
a place to sit down and watch. The 
movies come from a wide variety, 
ranging from a parable on Christ to 
Volkswagon commercials and from a 
study on creativity to the Marx 
Brothers, not to mention 

If any students fail to sit in on somp 
of these movies they

Dear Editor. 

Regarding Mr. Soler's letter re- 
^^ garding my letter about Mr. Mc 
' Intrye's letter concerning longer skirt 

V First. I concede the point about 

e "becoming resistant to sin by pro- 
gressive exposure to temptation." 
Thatwasn't exactly what I meant. The 

^ only benefit of exposure to temptation 
is the discovery of which sins you are 

- more susceptible to and need more 

But, really, I think Mr. Soler 
missed half the point of my letter. The 
issue is not so much short skirts versus 
long skirts as personal responsibility 
for sin. The trendy phrase "the devil 
made me do it" applies here. The 
devil did not make me do it. I did it 
because I jolly well wanted to do it. 

The implication in questions of 
modesty is, all to often: I am male, the 
female body causes me to lust, this 
response is inherent, therefore, I 
lusted because she revealed too much 
skin. This is nonsense. I lusted 
because 1 allowed my mind to pervert a 
gift of God (the appreciation of beauty) 
and make it unholy. 

That nudity is our natural state is 
apparent from Genesis 2:25. The idea 
that the first couple were clothed with 
light is not found in the Bible. I 
personally don't believe in an actual, 
physical, concealing light. Why would 
God go to the trouble of creating 
something so beautiful as the human 
body and then turn around and cover it 
ail up? I imagine a radiant glow, 
something like the face of Moses after 
he descended Mt. Sinai (Ex. 34:30), 
may have been the case. 

But that is by the way and only 
shows nudity or any bodily exposure 
not to be inherently sinful. 

Christ said it was sin to "look at 
woman lustfully" or "to lust after 
her." (Matt. 5:28 RSV and KJV 
respectively.) The dictionary defines 
lust as "sexual craving, especially 
excessive or unrestrained." Christ 
was comdemning a state of mind in 
which men are predisposed to lust and 
which has nothing to do with what a 
woman is wearing and may not even 
require her physical presence. 

Let me remind you that the 
women's apparel in Christ's day was. 
for the most part, very modest-ankle 
length and loosely fitting-and yet lust 
was still possible. 

What 1 am afraid my opponents in 
this little controversy are doing is 
confusing sexual desire with lust. 
When a man looks upon a fair maiden 
(and vice versa) he feels some desire. 

This is natural and as God ordained it 
to be It is not sin. If unpursued 
(except with one's lawfully wedded 
wife), and unless it becomes unre- 
strained, excessive craving, it is not 
lust either. 

^ I am very bothered that we 
Adventists. although we make great 
show of our separation from and 
superiority to the medieval church 
still subscribe so fully to the old 
ecclesiastical injunctions against sex 
and feel quilty whenever we experi- 
ence the stirrings of our God-given 
biological/emotional nature. God 
gave us sex as one of His most sacred 
and meaningful gifts: let us not show 
ingratitude by failing to appreciate 
and enjoy His present (not to be 
interpreted as a call for licentious- 

But, I've strayed from the issue. It 
is so easy to blame others for our 
short-comings. The letter on rock 
music in the same issue of the 
Accent as Mr. Solers letter touches on 
the same problem. These individuals 
are telling the rest of us to mind our 
manners, so to speak, so that we will 
not make our "brother to offend". (/ 
Cor. 8:13) 

Fine. But are these people going to 
say: "Lord, how about throwing in a 
'fudge factor.' I'd have made it if 
everyone else hadn't thrown stum- 
bling blocks in my path." In this fight 
against evil we all have to diligently 
strive to overcome with only our own 
willpower and God's help to be 
counted upon. We cannot expect 
others to make our way easier (al- 
though granted, I would be nice). 

Everyone has different "pet sins," 
Imagine the chaos if we all tried to 
prune ourselves of everything that 
might offend or trip someone else up. 
It's frankly impossible. Lets all stop 
looking to others (at least if we can't 
handle it) and look to Him "from 
whence cometh our help" (Ps. 121:13 
Incidentally, I resent ttie implica- 
tion that because some fellows consid- 
er themselves to be driven to lust by 
immodest females, all males, includ- 
ing me, are necessarily subject to be 
same response. 

And m^ question still stands; if 
relatively modest SMC giris excite 
"Excessive or unrestrained sexual 
craving", what do you do about the 
"Beach and the entire state of 
California", and for that matter, 
Florida (as one irate girl pointed out to 
me) and the balance of the world in

Dennis Woods coming out on top in

not as effective as they should have 
been because they were not scheduled 
to pitch a certain number of times.

Dennis Moses, Branch Manager of 
the Home office and Vice-President of 
the Chamberlain Mortgage Company 
of Chattanooga, is teaching the only 
course in Real Estate offered at SMC. 
The purpose of the course is to make 
the students aware of the principles 
and practices in buying, sellisg, and 
financing real estate. 

Although Moses is well qualified 
for the job, (for he is president of the 
Mortgage Bankers Association of 
Chattanooga, a member of the Greater 
Chattanooga Home Builders Associa- 
tion, and a member of the Chattanooga 
Board of Realtors,) he has had guest 
speakers that are attorneys, real estate 

agents, and appraisers.' This is so the 
students may get different views of the 
whole process of buying, selling, and 
financing realestate. 

Moses graduated from the Univer- 
sity of Chattanooga with an AB in 
Economics and from the University of 
Chicago with a M.B.A. 

Moses was bom in Cleveland, 
Ohio, but has lived in Chattanooga 
since 1947. He lives on Signal 
Mountain with his wife, former Pam 
(Robertson, and three children, one girl 
and two boys. He is 31 and has been 
with the Mortgage Banking Industry 
seven years, previously with a subsid- 
ary of Crocker National Bank: San 
Francisco. This is the second year he 
bas taught at SMC.

Jones Hall Has an Old-Fashioned 
Christmas Tree 

My most memorable Christmases 
wer those spent when I lived on 
Orlando. Decorating the Christmas 
tree was a family affair. Several yearly 
happenings associated with the trim- 
minng of the tree added to this events 
enchantment. One was the question of 
"Do you think any of the lights have 
burned out since we used them last 
year?" Then came the magic moment 
when Daddy would plug in the lights 
and to us children's surprise, they 
would shine as brightly as the last time 
we had seen them. Mom could put 
tinsel on the tree better than anyone. 
We children would throw it toward the 
tree and thought it looked fine 
wherever it landed. After we were 
fmished with the tree, the vaccuum 
cleaner went on and slurped its way 
over the tinsel and broken tree balls 
that somehow we always left behind. 
These were the best Christmases.

the ingenuity of a few girls who live 
there. It seems that there were no

of them having either succumbed to 
old age or being misplaced in the 
seasonal shuffle. 

Notices were posted around the 
dorm asking for help in this matter and 
offering suggestions for home-made

looking tree was transformed into a 
vision of loveliness with charming, old

Can Rudolph Bring Christmas to Collegedale? 

DWanda Patsel 

One day, Rudolfs friends dared 
him to stick his nose to a frozen 
well-handle. He had just drunk a 16 
ounce Seven-up and when Rudolf 
drinks Seven-up, he gets it on his nose 
for deers don't have special etiquette 
about drinking Seven-up. 

So, with a wet Seven-up nose, 
Rudolf stuck the same nose to the icy 
well-handle. Sugary liquid fastened to

"Rudolf!" called mother dear, 1 
mean deer, "Your Dad is home!

"Rudolf, what is keeping you?" 
she impatiently called again. "Oh 

dear, I wonder what he's up to now," 
she sighed as she heard Rudolfs 
friends laughing uproariously outside 
the hole in the wall. 

"HO! HO! HO!" shouted a voio 
"Oh dear, not another forest fire.' 
thought Rudolfs mother with dismay 
"I'm rather tired of that anemic as 
paragus-green ox with blood-shot, 
twitchy eyes and megaphone-whine 
giving me a head-ache. It always goes 
smoking by our hole in the wall." 

The laughing ceased, 

Poor Rudolf, so frightened by the 
overweight gardener clad in red 
astride the ox, pulled his nose from the 
clutches of the icy well-handle, leaving 
the brown velvet skin attached to the 

The friends then laughed at 
Rudolfs bloody nose-at this point, 

that will brighten the hearts of every 
boy and girl who has a chimney in their

your mother. No longer will she have 
to take a powder. No longer will your

How Christmas is Celebrated 
in Other Countries 

In England no one starts getting ready 
for Christmas as early as they do here. 
A typical English Christmas dinner 
would be; savory steamed pudding, 
boiled new potatoes and peas. And for 
dessert a Christmas pudding with hot

Silver bells and angels bright. 
Scented candles by the bed. 
Glowing brightly in the night.

Spreading merry Christmas cheer. 


In the Dominican Republic we go out 
singing from house during the Christ- 
mas season. As we serenade we 
collect people along the way and our 
group keeps growning larger. Some- 
times people give us food. We usually 
start around midnight and keep going 
til about 5:00 in the morning. -Lillian 

In Germany we get our gifts on the 
evening of the 24th. Santa Claus 
comes for the children on the eve of 
the 6th. We also celebrate the 25th 
and 26th. A typical Christmas dinner 
would include a Christmas goose. We 
make special Christmas cookies. One 
of the kinds-Lebkuchen- comes from 
an old recipe. My favorite is a little 
round raisin vanilla kind my grand- 
mother makes. In Germany we have 
special outdoor Christmas markets in 
the eveining where they sell every- 
thing. - Claudia Kutzchbach 

In Argentina the people do a lot of 
baking for Christmas-fruit breads, 
cookies, fruitcakes. On Christmas eve 
groups of people go singing from

when everyone comes flocking around

rich) asking for Christmas bukshies

In my country (Puerto Rico) we visit 
friends to ear special meals and sing

How Were 

the Reindeers Named? 

DJens Rios 

Now that the spirit of Christmas is 
in the air, no doubt many readers are 
asking that question so often posed 
this time of year: How did Santa's 
reindeer get their names? Well, ask 
no more. Keep on reading and just 
remember you was it first in the 

Back in 1822 a teacher and Hebrew 
scholar by the name of Clement C. 
Moore wrote a poem entitled "A Visit 
From St. Nicholas" or. as it is 
popularly known today, "Twas The 
Night Before Christmas". He was a 
loving father and wanted to write 
something that would amuse and 
delight his six children that year for 
Christmas. Until then there hadn't 
been anything written describing in 
detail Santa or his reindeer. Back then 

no one knew that Santa even had eight 
reindeer that pulled his sleigh through 
the air or that he delivered gifts all 
over the world on Christmas eve. Oh, 
the ignorance. 

Having the cunning and the wit, 
that we know all teachers possess, Mr. 
Moore made up the names of Dasher, 
Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, 
Cupid, Donner. and Blitzen. And so 
the answer is revealed. 

But how did we happen to pick up 
on these names? As fate would have 
it, a house guest copied the poem 
without Mr. Moore's knowledge and 
gave it to the press. It was first 
published by the Troy Sentinel on 
December 23, 1833, and has since 
become a delight, especially to the 
children, during the American Christ- 
mas season. Bless you Clement C. 
Moore. We kids needed that.

One of the students who felt that 
Christmas had not become too com- 
mercialized said that "Christmas has 

become commercialized but not so 

much that it's not meaningful to me 

"The important thing used to be 
getting up and opening your presents 
- now it's being with your family-the 
one time everyone can be together," 
was one girl's sentiments, echoed by 

Most of the students who said they 
have become cynical about Christmas 
said they were disillusioned about the 
empty celebration of the holiday, not 
the idea of Christmas itself. 

"Christmas is a!ot more meaning- 
ful to me now", one student stated, 
"when I was a kid I remember 
accidentally discovering the word 
"Christ" in Christmas and wondering 
at the significance." 

Although the majority of students 
surveyed were concerned atjout the 
commercialization, most felt that the 
true essence of the holiday was not 
totally drowned out fee the bright lights 
and plastic decorations.

Not very long ago, a Spanish 
church in Atlanta asked a group of 
SMC students to bring special music 
for their church service. After a few 
arrangements a group was organized. 
They met and practiced songs when 
Luis Carlos told them that they would 
be unable to sing due to lack of funds 

Not to be discouraged 10 students 
pitched in and traveled to Atlanta 
where they sang and were richly 
rewarded as one woman surrendered 
her soul to the Lord. The church asked 
them to present a Christmas program 
and to do special music for Sabbath 
School and Church Service. 

The students decided to form a 
musical group which they named 
Gethsemane. because they wanted "to 

carry to everyone the Love and Victory 
of our Saviour." 

It was in Gethsemane where Jesus 
encountered the tempter as He had 
come to face the last fearful struggle. 

Christ's victory is now ours, and 
that is what Gethsemane is planning 
on taking to their listeners. 

The group is composed of 16

"The most moving thing that I no- 
ticed, were the sheer masses of 
people." remarked Dr. Henry Kuhl- 
man about his trip to Jordan this past 
summer. Dr. Kuhlman was involved 
in digging the ruins of the city of 
Heshbon. Heshbon, which is located 
20 miles south-west of Ammon, the 
capital of Jordan, has been the site of a 
geology expedition to discover what 
types of civilizations had lived there. 

The expedition, which is sponsored 
jointly by Andrews University and the 
American 'Schools of Oriental Re- 
search, wai in its fifth and last season 
this past Slimmer. Previous years for 
the expedition were 1968. 1971. 1973. 
and 1974. Present in the expedition 
were approsimatly 90 Americans, and 
upon arrival, 150 natives were hired to 

Dr. Kuhlman worked with the 
Architects and Surveyors, a job that 
was three-fold. First, he was respon- 
sible for laying the squares to be dug. 
The size of a square was 15 feet by 20 
feet and had to be located exactly. 
Second, he would provide the eleva- 
tions of anything uncovered, and third, 
would make drawings of all architect- 
ual findings, adding with them topo- 
graphy maps of the location in which 
the article was taken. 

The average work day started at 
5:00 a.m. when breakfast was served. 
At 6:00 a.m. work started anu here 
was a brief pause at 9:30 for a quick 
-second breakfast. At 11:30 tea would 
be served, and they would stop at 2:30 
p.m. due to the intenseness of the 
heat. During these breaks the men 
would visit other areas of the project to 
see how it was progressing. The work 
week was five days long, leaving the 

week-end free. 

The problem of housing everyone 
together and still staying not far from 
Heshbon was solved by renting a 
Palestinian girls' school in Madaba. 
Madaba. which is only six miles from 
Heshbon. is the third largest city in 
Jordan having a population of appros- 
imatly 35.000. This city was known for 
its mosaic floors and still has one 
preserved today from either 200 or 300 
A.D. showing the Dead Sea and some 
gates of Jerusalem. Another out-

At the school, the rooms were 
divided up with Uie men getting five, 
and women getting seven, the cook 
and the architects getting one apiece. 
An Adventist church was located in 
Ammon for Sabbath services and on 
Sunday, sightseeing was scheduled 

which included mostly other archeolo-

made on "Word processing". Instead 
of a letter being typed by a secretary it 
goes to a central location where a word

Fifteen to Twenty million Ameri- 
cans will be left with functionally 
inoperative and technically obselete 
Citizen Band radios within two years, 
reports Junius Ellis in the November 
22 issue of Moneysworth. 

Magnetic changes in the earth's 
atmosphere due to the upcoming peak 
of the 11-year sunspot cycle will begin 
late in 1977 and continue for five 
years. According to a recent study by 
the Department of Commerce, this will 
make most CO signals "nearly use- 

To alleviate this problem, the 
Federal Communications Commission 
Would need to change the current 
27-megahertz wavelength to a higher, 
sunspot-proof frequency. This wave- 
length chance is expected to be 
arinnffd late next year, but for many 
CB'ers, the change will come unex- 
pected. Leon Garry, editor of Media 
Industry letter claims that the silence 
of the FCC on this decision is allowing 
another billion dollar consumer swin- 
'^'e- "It's happened before," Garry 
states. "Back in 1945 they suddenly 
t^hanged the FM radio frequency to 
"^mpensate for sunspots and TV 
interference, leaving halt a million 
people with worthless sets." Garry 
feels that the FCC should be warning 
CB owners of the coming difficulties 
"istead of allowing the CB manufac- 
turers to continue to sell as if sunspots 
*ere unknown occurences. 
. The new 40 channel CB's will be 
lli^' ^^ susceptible to the interference. 
Moneysworth quotes Oonald L. Lucas. 

director of the government's sunspot 
study, who explains how CB signals 
will "skip" or reflect back to earth at 
random during sunspot activity due to 
the ionization of the atmosphere's F-2 
layer. "This skip interference will 
cause a deafening jumble of static 
which will knock out most local signals 
beyond one mile or two." 

CB'ers have already begun to 

reduction of range. Ronald Stone, an 
FCC engineer, told Moneysworth that 
the CB user is faced with limited 
aftematives. He can either continue to 
use his present CB with a significant 
decline in functionability. or he can 
buy a higher frequence set, which is a 
more expensive unit.

Resisting Social Allurements 

Lying in Green Pastures 

For a shepherd to see his sheep his sheep in order to make it suitable

re met there is still one more problem 

3 contend with. Before his sheep will 

content to the point where they will lie lie down in green pastures they must 

down in green pastures. There are 
four requirements which a shepherd 
must meet if his sheep are to do that. 

Owing to their timidity sheep will 
not lie down unless they are free of all 
fear. The shepherd must take care 
that all is safe for his shy, dependent, 
little Iambs, for they make an easy 
prey for prowling predators. $ 

One easy way to calm his fearful 
flock is to simply stand amongst them 
where they 

be free from hunger. A sheep will be 
up and about searching for food 
constantly if he is not full. 

A shepherd's responsibility is to 
see to it that his sheep have plenty of 
good grazing through the day if he 
wants them to grow up into strong.

down and ruminate in the rich green 

Because of the social behavior 
within a flock, sheep will not lie down 
unless they are free from friction with 
others. Sheep, like chickens, have a 
■ ' pecking order' ' ■■ only the name for it 
is "butting order". Each sheep

When problems bug us, if we would

Holy Spirit and thereby give us peace 

and strength in life. If we would fill up

A third problem which shepherds 
must contend with in the caring for of 

DJetr>' Gl-idson 

Man. having a social nature, has a 
hard time resisting the crowd. Men, 
women, and young people seem to 
drift with the tide. Whatever is the fad 
or fashion engulfs the whole. To be 
different is to be odd. It was recently 
my privilege to attend a lecture given 
by Mr. James Barr, Professor of 
Semitics at the University of Man- 
chester in Great Britain. Mr. Barr is a 
world authority in the area of linguis- 
tics and Biblical studies. During the 
course of the ' lecture he made a 
refreshing statement that runs more or 
less thus: 'It is a mark of glory when a 
scholar resists the prevelant mood of 
thought and charts his own course." 
That applies to anyone, not just 
scholars: "It is a mark of glory when 
someone resists the prevalent mood in 
the name of a higher principle." 

It is interesting that Mr. Barr was 
lecturing on the book of Daniel. It you 
read that Old Testament book closely, 
especially its first six chapters, you 
will see that one of its themes is 
resistence to the prevailing cUmate of 
thought. In the first chapter, Daniel, a 
young captive who recently came from 
Jerusalem to Babylon, refuses to eat 
"the king's rich food, or.. .the wine 
which he drank." (1:8). This refusal 

was not just a matter of intemperance, 
though that was certainly included. 
More, Daniel refused because the 
foods served had been dedicated to 
Babylonian deities. To have eaten it 
would have been to have worshipped 
another God than Yahweh. That was 
something Daniel refused utterly to 
do. No crowd pleasing for him! 

In chapter 3, Daniel's three friends 
refuse to honor the king's decree to 
worship a golden image which had 
been set up "in the province of 
Babylon". (3:1) When asked if they 
would reconsider, their answer was 
classic: "...our God. able to deliver 
us.. .but if not, be it known to you, 
king, that we will not serve your gods 
or worship the golden image which 
you have set up." (3:17) 

Was all this just pig-headed stub- 
bomess? Were these ancient people 
merely religious fanatics? 1 hardly 
think so. In the times in which you and 
I live we find it difficult to believe that 
anyone would take their convictions 
that seriously. The world and the 
church today is in desperate need of 
men and women who will think for 
themselves, who will respond to a 
. higher ethic, who will inspire and point 
to higher things.

"our" children, and share with us as 
we learn of Jesus? Be sure to meet us 
in front of Wright Hall at two o clock 
Sabbath afternoon. There you II find 
one of SMC's "Story Hour vans 
waiting, or a couple of red VW s in-

Camp Road and bump along through 
Ringgold, Georgia till we reach Ble- 
vins Acres. 

It's now after 2:30 and the children 
are probably looking for us. Sure 
enough, there are Kirk and Keith the 
seven-year-old tivins, peering out from 
behind opposite ends of the livingroom 
uriains.'They're quickly followed by 
their older brother, Robbie, as they 
make a dash for the van, Robbie 
heading for one of the front seats, the 
wfns for the back. Up the hill and

Once inside, it's upset-the-fruit-

through the general favorites, since 

the children don't hesitate to tell us 
what they don't want to smg. We ve 
come to meet with Jesus, and it s hme 
to ask Him to be with us. Randy has 
just impressed them with the need for 
reverence, and with an occasional 
reminder, all is quiet as small hands 
are clasped in larger ones and we 
kneel to claim the promise.

and we kneel for prayer before taking 
them back home. 

When each is satisfied with his

Childish chatter is replaced with I

back toward SMC. and each is left to 
his own thoughts for awhile. I ask for 
wisdom and understanding of Jesus' 
words when He said. "Let the little

trusting as these little children's"

Christ and 
Your Salvation 

n Steve Torgerson 

If there was a formula which could 
remove all doubts from peoples' 
minds. I would not only write about it, 
but I would proclaim it from the 
housetops. Having no doubts, how- 
ever, would preclude faith, and we all 
know that without faith, it is impossi- 
ble to please God (Heb 11:6). Then 
does this mean there can be no 
:e? God forbid! 

First let us determine whai it is we 
want to assure. In a Christian context, 
we most want to be assured of eternal 
life. What lies at the center of our 
overwhelming concern on how and if 
we are saved? Could it be a new guise 
for the continually lurking monster of 

How important is our salvation? 
Important to God? Infinitely! Import- 
ant to us? Youbetl But should it be a 
matter of overwhelming concern and 

Let us look to the life of Christ for 
some answers. How concerned was 
He with His personal salvation? His 
concern drew blood from His pores in 
Gethsemene, but His decision there 
and the decision He made in the 
beginning to come to this earth reveal 
a deep-er purpose for life. 

Do the words "My God, My God, 
^'■w had thou forsaken Me," shake 
yni, -ip? They should. They are not 

exactly the epitome of faith and hope. 
Or are they? Let's look back to their 
origin in Psalm 22: 1 - Uok particularly 
at verse 5; "To Thee they cried and 
were saved; in Thee they trusted and 
were not disappointed." Even though 
the desperate wickedness of sin 
caused God's Son to feel forsaken, 
there was still hope--"Into Thy hands I 
commend My spirit." Hope. ..hope in 

Should we then be surprised if our 
sins make us worry about the state of 
salvation? If our lives are so shallow 
that persona] salvation is our ultimate 
concern, then our sins should shake it 
up. But there is something deeper. 
Sin should shake the depths of our soul 
because it caused the death of the Son 
of God) 

Christ's life and death testified to 
His overwhelming concem--the glory 
of God and the salvation of others. 
The contemplation of His life can give 
us assurance. We can be assured that 
God will go to any extent tio insure our 
salvation. We can be assured that God 
loves us more than is humanly possible 
to comprehend. 

We are assured of a life to come (1 
John 5:13); but the ultimate beauty of 
the plan of salvation is not the 
perpetuity of life. It is its ultimate 
loveliness. This loveliness that is 
reflected in the willingness to sacrifice 
all. even life itself, for the glory of 
God, and the salvation of others. 

V^on Upon the Coast * 

D Samuel Soler 

I see the sea of silver 

And the phosphorescent foam 

Form the images of beauty 

Which are part of nature's poem. 

lean spend the fresh laid fragrance 

Which this season calls my own 

Yet for all, my thoughts are far away; 

I'm far away. ...from home. 

As I scan across this coastline 

Which divides the land and sea 

I can sense the breach of life's time 

Towards the vast Eternity 

Now the day's light is receding - 

On the way approaches night. 

Soon the clouds will felt the darkness 

And the stars will stand out bright. 

I'm a pilgrim. I'm a strangei 
But my home is within sight 






DTim Crosby 

The Bible teaches that a Christian 
does not retaliate when violently 
abused. The classical text is Matthew 
5:39. "Do not resist he who is evil, but 
whoever slaps you on your right cheek, 
turn to him the other also." 

In James 5:6 we are told that 
Christians who were condemned and 
murdered by the "rich" put forth no 
resistance. Christ said that "they that 
use the sword shall perish by the 
sword" (Matthew 26:52), a statement 
which applies to policemen as well as 
other mortals, though not necessarily 
in a condemnatory sense but simply as 
a statement of fact. As Christians, we 
have the example of our Lord who, 
"While being reviled, did not revile in 
return" (I Peter 2:23). who was 
"oppressed and ... afflicted, yet he 
opened not his mouth." And as He 
was, so must we be. The servant is not 
greater than his master. 

But the question is, should a 
policeman shoot to kill in self-defense? 
In this case there seems to be a 

conflict between the Biblical teaching 
nf nonviolence and the equally Biblical 
teaching that a proper authority has 
the right to carry a gun {Romans 
i3;3-4). I believe that the latter rule 
forms an exception to the former. The 
fart that Christians do not believe in 
inflicting pain on another person does 
not prevent them from whipping their 
children. This is a legitimate excep- 
tion to the general rule, And the 
policeman-citizen relationship is some- 
what analogous to the parent-child 

Criminals must be caught and guns 
must be used to catch them, and any 
SDA policeman has just as much right 
to use a gun in fulfilling his necessary 
role as, say, an SDA nurse has the 
right to work on the Sabbath. Certain 
undesirable tasks must be done, and 
certain people have the right, or duty, 
to do them. 

A policeman has the right to shoot 
in self-defense in order that the 
populace might not be deprived of his 
protection and in order that the killer 
might not kill again, as he probably 

Don't Let Your 
Fuse Blow 

DSamuel Soler 

Let's compare ourselves as 
individuals to an electrical circuit. 
God created and designed humans to 
serve as conductors of His own 
disposition, image, will and grace. 
(Gen. 1:26) As current flows out from 
the Great ; Am Electric and Oltility 
Power Co. via the effectual presence of 
the Holy Spirit, our "outlets" (atti- 
tudes, character, practicality, talents, 
etc) are charged. This gives recogni- 
tion to a particular Source. 

Carrying on our analogy, we can 
see the sinful nature as a short circuit. 
The human circuit "shorts out" when 
there is a crossing or miscontact within 
the life-wire. This keeps the current 
flowioR only within the circuit instead 
of allowing it to flow back to its Source. 
Sin will blow life's fuse. 

The fuse represents the mortality 
of man. It is a device the Almighty 
mcorporated into the human-circuit for 
safety purposes. Mortality is included 
in the works because a short circuit 
does not allow current to pass on to 
other circuits. This also leads to a 
build up of heat (pride) until the very 
conductors catch on fire. Self-centir- 
edness would kindle disharmony 
throughout a selfless 

not stopped. 

The illustration is not over until we 
take note of helps arrival to meet the 
distress call. Heaven sent down the 
one and only most wonderful Electn- 
cian-Jesus! You may not think that 
the term "wonderfiil" sounds 
meaningful when it is used to describe 
an electrician, but have you ever met 
an electrician who pays his own fee ' 
his labors? Thank God, Jesus didl

1633 Enroll This Semester 

There were 1633 people who have 
enrolled as students for the 1977 
winter semester as of Friday, January 
^ This compares to 1598 from last 

r and represents an increase of 35 
s from the 1976 winter semes- 

At the close of regular registration 
last week, 1606 students had enrolled. 

Last year 40 fewer had been 
enrolled making the 1976 total of 1566. 

Men and women are still being 
admitted for classes, and the final total 
hasn't yet been released by the Office 
of Admissions and Records. 

Kenneth Spears, director of Ad- 
"lissions and Records, estimates that 
the headcount for this semester will be 
down by approximately 150. In 1976 
the winter semester headcount was 
101 fewer than in the fall. 

Spears suggests several reasons 
'or the lower enrollment. Many 

students drop out after a semester of 
college, and fewer enroll in January. 
Approximately 65 students graduated 
this past semester as campared to 45 a 
year ago. 

"The enrollment is traditionally 
down 100-150 students from the fall 
semester," said Spears. In 1975 there 
were 146 fewer students, but a year 
earlier there were only 70 less than the 
fall semester. 

"The headcount for 1976 was down 
6% from the winter semester. This 
year it should be close to 8%," he 
said. ' 'The full-time equivalancy (total 
hours divided by a constant number of 
full-time hours) usually varies from 
4.5-8.6%. This semester it will 
probably be between 7.0 and 8.9% 
lower" than the previous semester. 

The final total enrollment of last 
semester was 1817. The official total 
enrollment as well as other pertinent 
information will be printed next week. 

Tuesday marked the beginning of a 
Student Week of Prayer at Southern 
Missionary College. The program, 
sponsored by the Campus Ministries, 
will continue until the late servife of 
the Collegedale Church Saturday 

Warren Auld gave the first presen- 
tation, entitled "Poverty and Pay- 
ment", at Tuesday's chapel. Don 
Jehle spoke on "You've Got a Prob- 
lejh" at Wednesday's joint worship, 
followed by a message on "Faith and 
Acceptance" by Shane Martin. 

Don Ashlock will speak at today's 
chapel on "Sanctification By Faith". 
Tomorrow at vespers. Roger Woodruff 
and Linda Stevens will speak on some 
practical aspects of Christian growth. 
Early church service will be held by 
Paul Doling, and the final speaker for 
Student Week of Prayer will be Tim 
Crosby. He will deliver the message 
for the late service at the Church. 

For the last few months work on 
the Student Week of Prayer has been 
in progress. Don Ashlock, Director of 
Campus Ministries, had received 
several reports from Adventist 
academies and colleges where their 
Student Weeks of Spiritual Emphasis 
had been successfiil. He had peti- 
tioned the Religious Activities Co- 

ordinating Committee, and they were 
receptive to the idea. From there it 
went to the Deans' Council to be 
approved. Ashlock and Bart Willruth, 
Religious Vice-President, were then 
responsible for most of the program. 

Several students, instructors, and 
deans submitted names of potential 
speakers to a committee compromised 
of both faculty and student members, 
this committee listened to various 
students speak at worships or in 
homiletic classes. It then suggested a 
list of speakers. 

Ashlock said that the Student 
Week of Prayer was aimed Primarily to 
reach those students who have not 
fiilly seen their need of Christ. It is 
anticipated that many will surrender 
their lives to Him as a result of the 
Week of Prayer. He also mentioned 
that if the program went well, it could 
set a precedent for future years. 
This, he said, was not uncommon on 
other SDA campuses. 

It was designed so there would be 
no additions to the students' regular 
class schedule including no evening 
meetings except for Wednesday night 
joint worship. This gives extra 
spiritual emphasis without overtaxing 
the students' already busy schedule. 

Academic Activities Offers Books 

The SA Academic Activities coinmittee is offering, as a service to 
students, paperback books of academic and cultural interest at low rates. 
These books go on sale today at the student center desk. 

In order to simplify sales live titles will be featured every two weeks. 
J.R.R. Tolkiens' lord of the Kings series leads the list of books and will 
remain available until the end of January. 

This series consists of The Hobbit. The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two 
Towers. The Relun, of the King, and a dictionary-type book. A Guide to 
Middle Earth.

New Locks Installed AtTalge 

Engineering Department began in- 
stalling new locks on the first floor 
rooms of Talge Hall a week from last 
Wednesday, January 5. The second 
floor will have new locks during the 
summer, and third floor rooms will 
have theirs replaced during the follow- 

Many students wondered if too 
many keys had been issued, or if 
someone had a master key and was 
breaking into the mens' rooms. 
Everett Schlisner, the Dean of Men, 
commented that there is "a little 

problem with theft" at SMC. The 
reason the locks are being replaced in 
the mens' dorm, according to Schlis- 
ner, is the locks are worn out. "This is 
about the Nth year these locks have 
been here, and they have been in 
constant use." the Dean of Men 
stated. He also added that it would 
cost too much to repair all the old locks 
in the dorm; it would be wiser to buy 

The cost of the new installations is 
taken from the repair budget of the 
mens' dorm, and will be spread over a 
few years.

Aliens Must Complete Official Form 

Washington, D.C.— Harry Willis Mil- 
ler, M.D., known to generations of 
Asians and Americans as the "China 
Doctor," died January 1. in Riverside, 
California. He was 97. 

Dr. Miller reportedly suffered a 
massive heart attack on his way to 
Seventh-day Adventist morning 
church services. 

Famous in the Orient for his skill as 
a thyroid surgeon, Dr. Miller was also 
a pioneer in the field of nutrition. He 
developed the process of making 
soybean milk to feed malnourished 
Chinese children in areas where cow's 
milk was unavailable. The product is 
widely used today among the 10 
percent of the world's population 
allergic to regular milk. 

Miller served as physician to Chou 
En-lai, Madame Chiang Kai-Shek, and 
once treated the Republic of China's 
first leader, Sun Yat-Sen. During his 
first stay in Mainland China he cured a 
Manchurian Leader, Marshall Chang 
Hsueh-Liang. of the opium habit. 

Bom in Ludlow Falls, Ohio, in 
1879, Dr. Miller received his medical 
degree from American Medical Mis- 
sionary College in 1902. The following 
year he was sent as one of the first 
missionaries to China. 

Living in the shadow of the Boxer 
Rebellion, when many foreign mis- 
sionaries were killed. Dr. Miller and 
his wife, Ethel, dressed as Chinese 
and gained the respect of rich and poor 

The first Mrs. Miller died in China 
less thao two years after their arrival, 
but the Doctor remained to establish 
the first Adventist Publishing work in 
China. He spoke and wrote fluent 
Mandarin, and supervised the carving 
of Chinese characters to set type on a 
small hand press. In 1910 he founded 
China Missionary College, now located 
in Hong Kong. 

HI health forced his return to 
Washington. D.C., in 1912. He served 
simultaneously as Secretary of the 
Adventists' General Conference De- 
partment of Health and Medical 
Director of the Washington Sanitarium 
and Hospital (now Washington Ad- 
ventist Hospital), 

The years 1925 to 1939 again saw 
Dr. Miller in Mission service in China. 
He built Shanghai Sanitarium and 
Hospital, the First Adventist medical 
institution outside the United States, 
and the Wuhan Sanitarium and Hospi- 
tal in Central China. The church now 

operates over 200 hospitals woridwide 
In 1938 the Doctor was in Wuchanp 
when a Japanese bomb hit a small 
dispensary in which he was working 
He singlehandedly rescued one of 5ie 
clinic workers and a baby from the 
debris after officials thought they had 
saved all survivors. 

The years of Worid War n found 
Miller in the United States again, this 
time as Medical Director of the Mount 
Vernon Hospital in Ohio. While there 
he founded the International Nutrition 
Laboratory, which carried out experi- 
ments on vegetarian protein products. 
The laboratory is now part of Loma 
Linda Foods. 

Id 1960, at the age of 81, Dr. Miller 
was called to establish a hospital in 
Hong Kong, he worked as a fund- 
raiser throughout the Orient, finally 
helping to set up two institutions- 
Tsuen Wan Hospital in the New 
Territories (Hong Kong) and the 
downtown Hong Kong Adventist Hos- 

He remained in Hong Kong until 
1974, practicing surgery and seeing 
patients in a weekly clinic. He 
performed his last surgery just two 
months before returning to the River- 
side, California. By his own estimate. 
Dr. Miller performed 6,000 thyroid 
operations and "about 30,000" gene- 
ral operations during the span of his 
70-year career in medicine. 

Dr. Miller served on the American 
Relief Administration at the appoint-

SMC Graduates Collect 
Physics Tables 

■: He loves righteousness: the upright .ill behold His 
face. Psalm U:7(NASB) 

DJack Kovalski 

Joe Mashburn, a '76 graduate of 
S.M.C. is one of the authors of an 
article which appeared in the July 
issue of the Journal of the Tennessee 
Academy of Science. The article 
presents a nine-page table of numbers 
describing the brilliance of the colors 
of light emitted by diatomic molecules 
in flames, stars, and glow-tubes. The 
numbers had been collected over a 
four-year period from scientific jour- 
nals published ail over the world since 

The project began in 1972 when 
Jorge Flechas, a '73 graduate of SMC 
participated with Dr. Ray Hefferlin in 
the Physics Department research 
group, which was then beginning to 
sludy molecular phenomena. It was 
learned that a scientist in Germany 
had begun a collection of the light-in- 
tensity numbers some years earlier but 
was unable to finish it. The scientists 
offered to give SMC access to his files 
but explained that he could not mail 
them. So during the summer of 1972, 
Jorge Flechas, whose home was in 
Spain, flew to Germany and made two 
huge boxes of Xerox copies from the 
files of Dr. Roger Main. 

During his senior year, Flechas 
organized the material and began the 
preparation of the final table. Joe 
Mashburn completed the table, in- 
cluding in it results from scientific 
journals which Main did not have and 
which have been published since that 

time. The table was stored in the 
memory of SMC's HP-2000F compu- 
ter. It was edited from terminals in the 
Physics Department; a line-printer 
copy was sent to the editor of the 
Journal without further changes- sci- 
entists anywhere on the continent and 
overseas may have magnetic tapes of 
the tables. 

The molecular numbers are obtain- 
ed by scientists who study the light 
emitted by the molecules under known 
conditions of temperature and pres- 
sure. With the numbers, it is possible 
to observe light emitted under known 
conditions, such as in a star, and to 
determine the pressure and tempera- 
ture of the source. 

The Physics Department has been

FRANKLY SPEAKING ■■ by phil frank 



Last Sunday morning, four people knocked and knocked on the Student 
Center doors. FinaJyy, a young man who was working nearby approached 
the flustered group and inqliired what the problem was. " Today is Sunday, 
and we don't have any classes. We'd like to play ping-pong, but the Student 
Center is closed," And so, the disappointed ones leave, searching for some- 
thing else to do. 

The Student Association officer rushes up to the door of the Student 
Center; he has a lot to do, and Sunday is one of the best times lo accomplish 
something. He tries the door - it's locked! He presses his nose against the 
^ass - it's dark and no one is inside. 

Each week as work is being done on the Southern Accent we witness 
several people coming to the Student Center doors, shocked that they are 
closed. This is not an unusual experience; and many students get really upset. 

It has been suggested by some thai perhaps students don't go to the SC on 
Sundays, but would rather sleep late. But 1 sincerely doubl that they stay in 
bed until 2;00 p.m., which is the lime when the SC opens on Sundays. 

The deskworkers are not paid so much that it would be detrimental 
to the budget to ^ve them a few more hours fo work. For the extra cost, 
not only would students be able to enjoy their Sunday mornings ir 

To be honest, I have not yet discussed the matter with Dr. Melvin Campbell, 
Dean of students, or Ruth Gcrrins, Student Center co-ordinator. But I 
intend to by the time this issue has been printed, 

Dr. Campbell and Mrs, Gerrins arc both deeply concerned with the 
Student Center. They have been interested in having it redesigned lo provide 
a better atmosphere for student enjoyment. They would like to make the 
Student Center truly a center for students. 

I believe that ihey would be receptive to your.commcnts and suggestions on 

Remember when the electricity on the campus went off last semester due 
to a wire over by the Spaulding Elementary School which burnt? Two 
Accent reporters rushed out of the Student Center and dovm the side steps to 
cover the story. As soon as the door closed, they found themselves in pitch 
black darkness. 

It is a dangerous situation, and could be remedied by installing battery- 
operated emergency limits in the stairwells. Someone colild be seriously 
injured if the electricity would go out again. 

1 have discussed the matter with Dr. Campbell, and he has assured mt that 
he will look into the matter. The Accent would like to see the Student Center 
become a safe and enjoyable place where students can congregate, participate 
in the various activities, or simply relax. But that's not only a matter for 

You have a part lo do, too. If you don't use the services it offers, then 
becomes a waste of your money as well as wasting the time and effort of 
e trying lo make the SMC student center a place where

students, faculty, and community of

AVT Offers Reading Clinic 

The Institute of Developmental 
Studies, more commonly known as 
AVT (Audio, Visual, and Tactile) is 
starting a reading laboratory for SMC 
students this Sunday. This is the first 
full program that has ever been 
offered to college students. 

AVT has been in the Chattanooga 
area for almost ten years helping over 
1,000 children, young people, and 
adults with reading problems. 

Many college students do not read 
above a grade school level, and 
consequently some drop-out or do 
poorly in their classwork. AVT 
attempts to rebuild the foundation 
syils of the student. This enables him 
to, not only be able to read the printed 
words, but to comprehend their 
meanings as well. 

Most of the instruction given, 
according to Frank H. Lang, Director 
"f AVT, concerns the student* 
vocabulary. Not only is the vocabulary 
expanded, but phonetics principles are 
t^mployed to help the student in 
^P^^Hing as well. 

Tlie emphasis of the AVT program 
1^ nor on speed reading. However, it 
''Ms introduce students to the best 
^peed-reading methods, Lang said. 

The program offers 12 weekly two- 
"ouc sessions where small group work 
^ done, and individual instruction is 
given where needed. The cost for the 
J^ bours of colleee-level instruction is 

A shon pilot program for college 
J'ldents was conducted at Chat-

'f's was developed and expanded to

^"Sundays at 3:30 p.m.. 5:30 p.m., or 
•JOp.m. Arrangements will be made 

to locate a classroom , or if necessary, 
transportation will be provided to the 
AVT clinic. 

The reading program has been 
successful, according to Lang. Nosoca 
Pines Youth Camp (Liberty Hill, 
South Carolina) allowed over 100 
individuals to participate in AVT, with 
the average reading gain of almost two 
grades in only two weeks. Andrews 
University Reading Clinic is also using 
AVT under the co-ordination of Dr. 
MUlie Youngberg, stated Lang. 

He also mentioned AVT will be 
starting programs at Pacific Union 
College, Union College, and other 
Adventist colleges in the near future

place; and in order for man to retain 
justification, there must be continual 
obedience, through active, living faith 
that works by love and purifies the 
soul." (1SM366)

The Role Of Religion In Education

From its very beginning public

success and national prosperity.

Something has gone wrong, drasti- 
cally wrong, at the very core-not 
because secular education failed to do 
its job but because it does not have 
what is needed on order to reach the 
noble goals it has set for itself. 

If education is to reach its basic 
goal of good people living a good life in 
a good world it must work in close and 
constant partnership with rehgion. 
There are two fundamental reasons for 
this. The first one has to do with the 
nature and limitations of education 
itself. Secular education is restricted 
to that which can be learned through 
observation, analysis, and experimen- 
tation. As such it is a valuable and 
reliable source of information concern- 
ing the "what", and in some areas 
concerning the "how". But it cannot 
seemed be expected to disclose th^ "why 

as ifhe had never sinned. That's what 
I'm talking about. And He is in my

Is This How 

Not To 7 

DGerald Colvin 

1 drew my shade to street-light scum, 
I spumed the peeping skin, 
1 even fled the TV set- 
Is this how not to sin? 

I closed my neighbor's deepest eye, 
I stoned away his dog, 
I never left my doors unlocked 
Nor touched the human frogl 

I fled the lout with shaggy hair, 

I shunned the stubbled chin, 

I scorned my rags to Goodwill shops— 

I proudly blasted small men's d 
I scourged Iheir need to hate, 
1 cursed their godless drive to v 
Their will to dominate. 

Ah. Lord I never missed a thingi 
I scored and tagged each sin. 
And now. at last, did i please yoi 
, .. . Lord? 

and the "what for" of life and the 
universe. It cannot provide the 
answers to questions related to origin, 
value, and purpose-which are the real 
questions man needs to answer if he is 
to make sense out of the world in 
which he lives and find meaning, 
purpose, and direction in life. 

The second reason relates to the 
natue and predicament of man as a 
human being. Man's basic problem is 
not his ignorance but his sinfulmess. 
His real struggle is not with his mind 
but with his will. More than know- 
ledge, he needs power; more than 
being informed, he must be trans- 
formed. Secular education has no 
solution for this kind of problem; it has 
no answer to this type of question for 
the simple reason that these belong to 
the spiritual dimension of man and can 
be found only through a genuine and 
deeply personal religious experience.

"Boy, you should have been at

"Did you have lot's of fun. Dear?" 
her mother asked. 

"Yeah!. . . We sang songs with 
lots of movements in them, My 
favorite is His Banner. But I always 
get mi:(ed up." 

What else happened?" 
"We had this neat story with 

"What do you mean, honey?" 
"Remember in the Bible about a 
priest - God gave this mommy a baby 
boy. The mommy was so thankful she 
gave it to this priest." 

"OhI You mean the story about 
Samuel and Eli." 

"Yeahl" she replied with a giggle. 
"Well, dear, but you still didn't 
tell me about the dolls." 

"This lady took some dolls and 

used them to act out the story. Today 

was the first time. It was really neat!" 

"Did you do anything else?" 

"Yeah 1 . . . We colored some

We usually will sing songs with lots 
of motions, have the children offer a 
prayer, tell stories, have a craft and 
most of all, share our love given to us 
by Christ with the children. 

Besides the usual routine, from 
time to time there are picnics or hikes 
for the kids. 

I remember last year when we took 
the children hiking along a stream on 
Signal Mountain. A bus was provided 
to transport them over there. Sack 
lunches were also furnished for them 
to eat along the stream, and loads of 
patience was needed, as always, when 
you mix kids and water, 

I told the children before they got 
off the bus not to get in the water, 
which was, of course, a wasted effort. 
What fouled me up wasn't the 
children; it was the supervision. They 
took off their shoes and socks and 
started wading in the water. When the 
cutest child came up to me and said. " 
Can't we please? They are ..." Well, 
I'll leave the rest up to your imagina-

ence usually has proven to be extreme- 
ly frustrating, This Seminar will cover 
different methods that may be used 
with Jehovah's Witnesses in an at- 
tempt to avoid an argumentative 

confrontation, and allow the Adventist 
young person or worker an opportunity 
to witness to the Witness.

1645 Enroll This Semester 

Beards are now acceptable on the 
SMC campus as of action taken by the 
Faculty Senate on December 13, 1976. 
The rulmg stipulates that beards 
appearing on campus should be neatly 
trimmed and groomed. Provision is 
made that academic departments be 
free to decide whether or not male 
students in field training should be 

According to Dr. Cyril Futcher, 
Academic Dean, "There are groups of 
people we want to work with in an 
off-campus situation. In some cases, 
the wearing of a beard may be a block 
in the way of our students in such

But i 

The total enrollment for SMC has 
been finalized by the Office of Admis- 
sions and Records Friday, January 14, 
with the complete number of students 
for the second semester standing at 

In an earlier Accent article, 
Kenneth Spears, director of Admis- 
sions and Records, estimated that the 
headcount for this semester would 
probably be down 150 from last 
semester, but it now looks as if that 
figure will increase to 172. 

As for class standings, the field 
was broken down by Spears into a host 
of different categories. Seniors were 
the most diversified; 168 B.S. degree 

and 96 A.S. degree graduates. There 
were also 25 non-graduating seniors 
listed. Juniors totalled 277, while 
sophomores numbered 385. Freshmen 
made up the largest group of under- 
classmen hitting the 542 mark. 

There were also eighty special 
students and five post-graduates. 

Information concerning how these 
numbers correspond with certain 
majors was also released by Spears m 
the following list: Nursing 443; 
Theology 145; Business Administra- 
tion 65; Biology 121; Elementary 
Education 86; Office Administration 
65; Religion 65; Music 44; Health/P.E.

the beard as a moral issue. 
long as there are people that we must 
deal with who are opposed to beards, 
we feel that in order to better conform 
to what they want." 

Some departments will be request- 
ing the absence of beards during 
certain periods of their male majors" 
academic careers. Mrs. Ina Longway 
states that the Nursing Division will 
require students in the third : 
of their study m 

"The Division deals with various 
agencies in the Chattanooga area, 
many of whom are opposed to the 
wearing of beards. Therefore, our 
third semester students in training in 
these agencies will be required to be 
clean shaven. Also, the Oriando 
campus forbids beards, but our Madi- 
son campus does not." 

The Nursing Division will present 
their findings and requests

recital. His accompanist will be Dr. 
Ashton, Piano Professor. 

Gilbert will be performing J-S. 
Bach's Concerto for Two Violins in G 
minor; assisting on Second Violin will 
be his daughter Mary. Of Brahm's 
violin sonatas, Mr Gilbert has chosen 
Sonata in G Major. Op. 700 to perform. 
This sonata is the only Sonata with 
three movements; it is lyrical, rather 
than virtuosic, in character. Also to be 
played will be Franck's Sonata in D 
minor, one of the most popular sonatas 
in violin literature, and the only violin 
sonata composed by Franck. The 
program will also include Chaconne in 
by Vitali. Gilbert wUl

make a final ruling. 

During the Christmas holidays the 
Religion Department made a survey in 
the field concerning the general atti- 
tude towards beards. As a result of 
the inquiry, those religion students 
working with various churches in the 
area have been asked by letter to 
refrain from appearing with a beard. 

"The students involved are mainly 
our upper division men. They work in 
leadership and other positions in 
various outlying churches." stated Dr. 
Douglas Bennett. 

Faculty Senate 
Evaluates Reports 

The January 10 session of the 
Faculty Senate was concerned with the 
presentation of reports from various 

Faculty Affairs gave a schedule for 
student evaluation of faculty- The next 
student conducted evaluation is de- 
signaled to be at the end of the current 
semester. The Committee also pre- 
sented to the Senate a proposed 
tentative teacher load formula. This is 
based on a point system for such items 
as classes, sponsorships, labs, and 
musical activities. 

A report on the Nicaraguan Mis- 
sion project was presented by the 
Student Missions Committee. It was 
stated that the property of the mission 
is entirely owned by the Inter-Ameri- 
can Division. 

William Taylor, chairman of the 
Public Relations Committee, made a 
presentation concerning the activities 
of his department. The report covered 
such items as recruitment. Ingather- 
ing. College Days, the development of 
brochures and the process involved in 
sending out information concerning 
SMC students to their home town

SMC Offers 
^ Lower Rates 

DGftoff Owens 

A recent study indicates there is 
more advantage to a Southern Mis- 
sionary College education, than the 
mere enjoyment of fine southern 
hospitality and warm, sunny weather. 

Of the ten Adventist colleges and 
universities in the United States. SMC 
ranks ninth in the average :ost to the 
student. A student at SMC an expect 
to pay S3. 600 per year, as compared to 
S4.606 at the most expensive school. 

Students at five schools pay more 
than $4,000 a year, Three schools cost 
more than $3,750. The least expensive 
costs $2,620. (All based on 16 hours 
per semester, and not including books 
and supplies.) 

Tuition ranges from S]00 to $45 per 
semester hour (it should be mentioned 
that the lowest college recoups a 
portion of its low rates in a General 
Conference subsidy.). 

Although 5MC is positioned in 
about the middle for tuition, at S81 
per semester hour, it has the least 
expensive housing rates of all the 
schools. Students here pay $500 a year 
compared to $1,020 at the highest 
school, in this category. 

Meals cost the average SMC 
student $508 per year. The least

Band Plays at 
Televised Game 

SMC Concert Band performed its 
1st 1977 concert. Saturday evening in 
Atlanta's Belvedere SDA Church. 

The numbers played were: Theme 
from King of Kings. Jacob's Ladder, 
The Walls of Jericho, theme from the 
Bible, and Battle Hymn. The Lord's 
Prayer ended the Vespers Program 
with everyone standing rnd singing 
along as the band played. 

The SMC Band performed at the 
gigantic Omni auditorium for the 
Atlanta Hawks' Basketball game a- 
gainst the Kansas City Kings. This 
professional basketball game was tele- 
vised on three different TV stations, 
Channels 17. 5, and 2. 

The Band opened the pre-game 
show by playing "Emblem of Unity" 
and three other songs, as the people 
gradually came into the auditorium. 

At 8 p.m. the color-guard marched 
onto the court while the band played 
"The Star-Spangled Banner," and 
during half-time the Band played 
"King Cotton" as Julie McClarty did 
her twirling acts in front of the many 
TV cameras and people. Some of the 
other numbers played by the SMC 
Band were "Swing March and Red's 
White and Blue March." 

The game ended at 10:30 p.m. with 
the Kansas City Kings victorious and 
the Concert Band arrived back on 
campus at 1:30 a.m. 

One student commented that she 
was thankful because "many times 
student have gulped down their food 
only find themselves to be 10 minutes 
early to class." 

The clock has been appreciated by 
faculty, and administration, as well as

Total Religion on WSMC-FM 
* Not Favored by 63% Students 

DPat Batto 

Seventh-day Adventist College- 
owned radio stations have been fre- 
quently criticized by some church 
members for not using the stations as 
a full-time religious, evangelistic out- 

An opinion poll was taken of both 
SMC students and non-students to 
help determine if the local Adventist 
community would be in favor of a pro- 
gram change to a full-time religious- 
evangelistic format on WSMC. 

The questions that were asked are 
as follows: 1. Do you listen to 
WSMC? and 2. Should WSMC 

s present format or change

Of the students interviewed. 37% 
were in favor of a change to all- 
religion. The remaining 63% pre- 
ferred the present format over reli- 

Thirty-three percent of the non- 
student community were in favor of a 
change to all religion, and the remain- 
mg 67% were opposed to it. 

Twenty-five to 30% of those inter- 
viewed qualified their answer by 
suggesting a change, but not to an all 
religious format.

Who is Gaining from your Textbooic? 

DCourtesy of College Press Service 

When students begin studying for 
their first economics exam, chances 
are they will overlook one very rich 
lesson in basic supply and demand 
theory. That textbook, for which the 
student has probably supplied be- 
tween $13 to S15, is happily and 
steadily filling the publisher's de- 

The textbook industry is a financial 
oasis in the publishing business as 
new markets open up in adult educa- 
tion, women's studies and text which 
one leading publisher says are down- 
shifted for the increasing number of 
junior colleges, community colleges 
and night school courses. There is also 
a "return to basics in education 
philosophy in 1976," reports Jim 
Bradford at Scott, Foresman and Co. 

This trend marks a change from the 
past five years. "In 1971, we were still 
in Vietnam. Today, students are more 
interested in what this course will do 
for them in terms of coping with the 
world. There is a focus on the 
consumer side of economics," Brad- 
ford said. 

Textbooks are being geared more 
towards practical education. Today a 
student can open a textbook and learn 
how to borrow money for a new car, 
finance a house, or even balance a 
checkbook, instead of confronting one 
hundred years of historical data. In 
fact, the all-time best-seller on the 
college textbook charts is a volume 
called Accounting Principles by C. 

Rollin Niswonger and Phillip C. Fess 
which has been on the list for 2444 
weeks and is in its eleventh edition. 
And for anyone who thought that 
textbooks existed only for that rare 
student who is adept at memorizing 
dates and figures, Prentice-Hall pub- 
lishers put out a test called Life 
Insurance that has been selling stead- 
ily since 1912. The new edition is 
priced at S15.95 and is expected to sell 
25,000 copies in 1976. 

But the words "new edition" are 
enough to bring tears to the eyes of a 
student taking introductory courses 
like economics or political science. 
These courses often require texts 
which are revised regularly and that 
means that a student cannot buy the 
book used and possible save as much 
as fifty percent. 

For the publisher, though, the used 
book business is a pain in the profits. 
In fact, one of the main reasons for 
revisions, according to a leading 
college textbook publisher, is to cut 
out the used book market. Apparently 
there is no money for publishers in

on the eyecatching table marked 60-70 
cents. Scott. Foresman and Co. 
recently gave away nearly 10.000 
copies of a new biology text but it 
turned out to be a fruitless endeavor. 
A source at the publishing company 
reported that these complimentary 
editions would probably be sold by the 
professors for their own profit and 
cited one instance in which sample 
books were sold to finance parties. 

Nevertheless, publishing compan- 
ies are still priming the textbook 
market by giving an average advance 
on a college textbook of $5000 and 
royalty payments are being doled out 
at a rate of 15 percent. 

There is one encouraging move- 
ment by publishers to make textbooks 
more responsive to classroom audi- 
ences. They are encouraging a 
collaboration between the profession- 
ally recognized author and the profes- 
sor at the small community college 
who is more familiar with his or her 
classroom audience than the profes- 
sional, but whose writing ability often 
keeps that teacher out of the textbook 

While it is not certain who is 
getting the largest slice of the textbook 
dollar, there seems to be no substan- 
tial decline in the amount of college 
textbook publishing.

Gilmore and the Death Penalty 

DRon Gladden 

Gary Gilmore, a professional cell- 
warmer who spent 23 of his 35 years m 
trouble, was executed Monday. To the 
horror of the other 422 death-rowers in 
America. GUmore's execuHon could 
set a precedentithat will hasten their 
own appointments with death. 

Utah is not alone in re-instating a 
practice that has not been carried out 
since 1967. Trustees at the Texas 
State Prison at Huntsville are polish- 
ing "Old Sparky", the 52 year old 


Hsm mmr voice 



electric chair, and the gas chamber 
being prepared in Georgia. 

Recent congressional debates have 
been the setting for remarks and 
statistics which are gathered, organ- 
ized and almost bitterly hurled from 
side to side. The core of concern is 
realized by such questions as "How 
does the death penalty agree with the 
ethics of a highly civilized and Chris- 
tian nation? Is the death penalty cruel, 
unusual punishment? Is the death 
penalty a deterrent to murder? 

Perhaps we should review the 
Hebrew method of dealing with mur- 
der as instructed by God. "He that 
smiteth a man so that he die. shall be 
surely put to death." Exodus 21:12. 
(Read also verses 14 and 15 and 
Numbers 35:30). The little lady who 
wrote so many books agrees. In your 
own time, check out Patriarchs and 
Prophets, pages 310. 516, and 577, 

It seems, in light of inspired 
evidence, that the death penalty 
should be enforced, although not 
carelessly or randomly. To be nondis- 
crimnatory, the death penalty must be 
mandatory. When a person is found 
guilty of the specifiedcrime, premedi- 
tated murder, he would be swiftly 
dealt with and buried. 

Whether or not his father is rich, 
whether or not he is the former 
President of the United States, wheth- 
er or not he has a cunning lawyer, he 
would receive the fate of death. If this 
were carried out without exception as 

it was in ancient Israel and without 
prolonged and repeated appeals that 
clog our courts, the killer would be 
choosing his own death. 

Some argue that even if the person 
knows of his fate when committing the 
crime, the one who pulls the trigger or 
flips the switch is necessarily respon- 
sible for the criminal's death. Before 
deciding too quickly, visit the lake of 
fire. Are any among the lost placing 
the responsibility for their doom on 
God? Or do they realize that they have 
become a burning testimony to the 
results of sin because of their own 
choice? Surely the latter is true. 

We are so concerned with protect- 
ing the guilty that we have neglected 
the protection of the innocent. Should 
we not be more concerned with 
persons victimized by killers? Espe- 
cially so when we consider that in 
many states a murderer can be 
released in seven years on good 
behavior, making the likelihood of a 
repeat performance a threat to the 
lives of innocent citizens. 

If consistently enforced so that the 
choice is the killer's, the death penalty 
agrees with civilized ethics. According 
to out constitution and to Bible 
principles, the death penalty is noi 
considered to be cruel and unusual 
punishment. Perhaps it is labeled 
"unusual" by some merely because 
the enforcement of it has been unusual 

Only if the death penalty is 
mandatory, would it be an effective 
deterrent to premeditated murder. 
Persons comtemplating murder would 
think and re-think before doing some- 
thing that would inevitably mean 

Gary Gilmore's opinion? He was in 
favor of the death penalty- "The 
sentence is proper and I'm willing to 
accept it with dignity, like a man- ,

located on the main streets, but only

Pliny states that Scipio Africanus was 
the first Roman to shave daily. (Aren't 
historical footnotes wonderful?) 

The ancient Britons observed by 

Umirvb Ju'ius Caesar as well as the Celts 

described by Polybius wore extremely 

long mustaches but were otherwise 

clean shaven. 

Anglo-Saxons wore beards until 
the advent of Christianity in the 7th 
century. Then all members of the 
clergy were forced by law to shave. 

Mustaches were worn by the 
English princes until William the 
^ Conqueror had the nobles conform to

if^ It is believed that the Crusades 
were responsible for the return of 
beards. For over 400 years following

flatly stated that, "The beard is a 
useless embarrassment," and ordered 
it be cut off. To add further initiative 
to the order, a tax was levied on those 
who refused to comply. 

With the adoption ofthe powdered 
wig in the 18th century, the beard 
disappeared. It reappeared, however, 
in the 1800's, this time with a 
vengeance. Between 1840 and 1870 
London was the fashion center of the 
world. Side whiskers grew to luxuriant 
lengths coming to be known as

In the U.S. the "mutton chop" was 
termed the "dundreary" after a 
character in the play which Lincoln

forever have his name enshrined in the

British troops in Africa in the eariy 
part of the 20th century and later 
among men of the desert patrols of

From the end of the second worid 
war to the present, the beard has had 
varying degrees of social acceptance.

through the 60's it was viewed by 
many as a symbol of protest, winning 

At the present time the beard is no 
longer generally viewed as it was in 
the past decade. However, there are 
exceptions, naturally, as there are to 
practically everything. Argentina has 
very recently banned the beard, 
stating that nobody wearing one will 
receive identification papers which are 
mandatory in that country. One 
reason given for the ban is that in the 
past, many terrorists have been known 
to disguise themselves with beards.

swirls of Dannon's peach and vanilla 
yogurt. "It's a real hit." says Mrs. 
Nathlene Olsen, the Natural Foods 
manager. And it's the first in the 
Chattanooga area. 

Frozen yogurt first made the scene 
four years ago in Cambridge's Har- 
vard Square, where it drew long 
queues of teeny-boppers and Harvard 
professors. Manhattan stole the idea 
next and tiny parlors selling only this 
frozen version of cultured milk have 
sprung up everywhfire. Even crowds 
of stockbrokers on Wall Street, labeled 
"frozen yogurt city", share the action. 

Washington, too. is beginning to 
catch on to this popular dessert, and 
the new-style yogurt is quickly moving 
to the South and West, 

Q. Ken. why is the SA upset about last 
week's referendum ballot? 
A. We're upsst because only 20% of 
the student body voted and the people 
who ran the polling booths felt that 
those who voted weren't certain about 
the issues, even though all the 
amendments passed. 

Q. So what did you recommend to the 
student senate? 

A. I recommended that the senate 
nullify the referendum votes and hold 
another election after the issues are 
publicized efficiently. 

Q. How did the senate react to your 
A. There was som 
whether taking m 
would clear up any 

the referendum, but we don't want the 
student body to feel that we're trying 
to railroad something through on 
them. But the senate voted to support 
my recommendation, so we'll taki; the 
necessary time to publicize the refer- 
endum and make sure that each 
amendment is clearly understood. 

Q. How do you feel personally about 
the eight constitution changes? 
A. These proposed amendments 
represent many long hours put in by 
the senate and corresponding com- 
mittees. They are supported by a 
majority of the senate and 1 personally 
agree with most of them, although 1 
may vote negative on one or two of 

Q. Amendment 1 mentioned adding a 
student services director to the SA 
officers. Just what exactly is that? 
A. The student services director will 
mainly be concerned with activities on 
this campus. He will continue into the 
I research we've laid this year with the 
Student Purchasing Cooperative, in- 
volving Chattanooga area merchants. 
He would try to set up a student co-op 
buying power with discounts available 
to students from SMC. This person 
would also deal with problems facing 
the campus. 

Q. And what does the proposed 
community service program involve? 
A. Presently, Bonny Oaks and the 
First Offenders project is under the 
direction of the religious activities 
department and students are paid by 
the Work-Study government funding. 
But because of the 

government funds cannot be used with 
any religious organization to further its 
cause, the senate feels that "

Q, Amendment 2 refers to the 
religious activities director. Can you 
explain this amendment?

allowance for the religious activities 
director to be a senate member. Only 
the executive officers of president and 
vice-president are members. This 
amendment would put the religious

Armenians prefer yogurt made 
from buffalo milk. The Lapps use milk 
from reindeers, and the Greeks enjoy 
sheep or goats' milk yogurt. 

The Western world learned the 
secret of making yogurt in 1908. when 
the Russian-born scientist Uya Melch- 
nikoff isolated yogurt bacteria and won 
the Nobel prize for his research. 

In 1947 Dannon introduced the first 
fruit-filled yogurt-strawberry, and in 
1975 Americans consumed 200,000 
tons, or $300 million worth of yogurt, 

Food faddists say yogurt prolongs 
life, and some women claim that it 
makes an excellent face mask. Yogurt 
is, however, according to Dr. Dick H, 
Kleyn, professor of food science at 
Rutgers University, a superior source 
of protein, twice as digestible as the 
protein in milk. 

And the new frozen yogurt has only 
half the calories of ice cream. It's ice 
cream without guilt.

Q, I understand that amendment 3 
will rearrange the senate. Is this true? 
A. Yes, it will. The change here is 
that we'll have a larger number of 
senators representing the students on 
campus. Presently, we just have a set 
number for each residence area. 

Q, According to amendment 4, who 
doesn't qualify to be a senator? 
A. The people who wouldn't qualify 
would be the publications editors, the 
social activities director, the academic 
activities director, the secretary, and 
the treasurer. This would eliminate

eral elections.

Poinfers On Giving 

Bible Studies 

□ Gary Williams 

"Christ is sitting for His portrait in 
every disciple." DA 827. A parallel 
passage is found in COL 69. "When 
the character of Christ shall be 
perfectly reproduced in His people, 
then He will come to claim them as His 

The question naturally arises what 
does it mean by portrait? A portrait is 
a reproduction of visisble or invisible 
imagery on canvas. It is a mixture of 
various shades and tints. From this 
composite comes forth a masterpiece 
of representation. 

It may be well asked what are the 
various shades and tints? "But the 
fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, 
patience, kindness, goodness, faith- 
fulness, gentleness, self-control." 
Gal. 5:22,23. A parallel passage is II 
Ster 1:5-7. 

An interesting note on the fruit of 
the Spirit is that it is singular not 
plural. Love manifests itself as the 
fruit with the other elements of the 
passage as the results of producing 

Love is so misunderstood and so 
unknown today. No human definition 
is adequate. We can see the results 
everyday if our eyes are open to see. It 

ms that love finds little expression, 

i many wonder why. 

Love cannot be commanded. It 

St be given. To give requires to 
have. If you don't possess it, you 
t give it; that is so simple, yet it 
is so complicated because the compli- 

ion lies within us. 

Love is an element of divine 
infusion from the Holy Spirit. It is a 
foreign substance introduced into our 
body by Infinite Love. Once we grasp 
lomentous reality, we come face 
to face with the question - what do we 
do with it? There are two choices open 
■-to accept or to reject. 

Love remains where it is wanted. 
Love never intrudes itself because it 
recognizes it can ooly manifest itself in 
fertile soil -- then the loamness of 
loveliness eipresses itself in giving- 

A genuine life produces love 
because it has nothing else of worth to 
produce, when the product is seen, 
then the truth that the basis of creation 
and redemption is love finds vindica- 

The vindication of God is found in 
total loving. Total loving is manifested 
in total giving. For you see, the 
portrait of reproduction or character 
development is nothing more than 
total loving, total loving is the direct 
result of the daily work of the Holy 

(o have the character of Christ 
means to love the same way that He 
did. "When we love the world as He 
has loved it then for us His mission is 
accomplished. We are fitted for 
heaven; for we have heaven in our 
hearts." DA 641. 

Now we have a slight glimpse of 
the portrait. In this life we can only 
see the portrait in midnight shades. 
Should this concern us? The answer is 
no; our concern is to allow the Holy 
Spirit to work in us, and He will bring 
the perfection of fruit to harvest. 

The reality of all of this is open to 
each one. there is only one condition. 

Jesus stands at the door of the 
heart and knocks. We possess the

DAlbert E. Liersch 

When someone asks us to study the 
Bible with another person, we often 
react with fear, then panic. Sometimes 
we don't even call on them. But it 
really can be fun, and successful. 

Let's look at a few principles that 
we may use in giving Bible studies. 

First, since we are to let are light 
shine, we must have a light. So onto 
the knees in prayer we go to receive 
the experience we want to share. 

Next, remember that "truth" is 
both facts and experience. We blend 
knowledge and fellowship with Christ 
into what we try to convey. 

Remember that each person is an 
unique individual, so never become 
mechanical in your presentation. 
Allow God to give you the ability to 
meet the individual's mind. 

Prepare your thoughts in an organ- 
ized, logical, progressive order, but be 
willing to deviate to meet the indivi- 
dual's need. You know, we like to be 
scratched where we itch. 

Spend the first section of time 
becoming friends. Be genuine and 
develop empathy for them in their 

mental/emotional functioning. "Feel" 
with them. 

Inttoduce your subject in down-to- 
earth terms. Tell the importance of 
the subject, what you will learn, and 
why. Be real genuine! As H M.S. 
Richards says, "Tell them what you're 
going to tell them, then tell them, 
them tell them what you told them." 

Lead them from text to text, having 
'hem read, and waiting for them to 
rind the text in their Bibles. Then 
draw out all the major points from that 
text while you are there, and paint a 
word picture of that scene in as vivid 
terms as possible. 

Call on the person to make some 
kind of positive response or committ- 
ment at every text! But be careful not 
to drive a person into a 

negative response. Don't push! Only 
God knows how to do that right! 

Finally, tell them what you told 
them, and try to get them to commit 
themselves to that position. Then 
suggesy a topic for next time that will 
spark their interest. 

Finally, just go do it. It will come

The Role Of Religion In Education 

Part 2 

DHelmut Ott 

Broadly speaking, religion needs to 
i»mplement education in two general 
ways: (1) to inform man, and (2) to 

A. A Christian world-view: 
One of the greatest contributions 
■eligion can make to the education of 
'? individual is to help him develop a 
distinctively Christian understanding 
°f the worid in which he lives. By 
Pj'tting the learner in contact with 
divine revelation, it can broaden the 
of his awareness so that he may 
"evelop the perspective needed to 
lave room for God in his concept of the 
""■verse. (Gen. 1:1. Heb. 11:3) Man 
^ a creattire limited by time and 
JP^e. Nothing will do more to help 
inn make sense of the time and the 
^ace that confine him than to see the 
purpose for which God created them. 

In order to have a realistic world- 
view, the learner must also be intto- 
duced to the problem of sin, the great 
controversy between Christ and Satan, 
and the plan of salvation devised and 
set in motion by God to redeem his lost 

A clear grasp of these themes will 
help him understand why in this worid 
the false, the evil, and the ugly can be 
Found existing side by side and 
intermingled with the true, the good, 
and the beautiful. It will further help 
him to see that this world as it is now is 
not to be his permanent home. It will 
pass away. It will be replaced by a 
new order in a recreated world where 
righteousness reigns. (2 Peter 4:13, 
Rev. 21:1) What he experiences at 
present is not all there is to life. There 
is a tomorrow. Consequently, he must 
live his today in relation to the eternal 

and at the same time prepare for the 
eternal in the context of the here and 
now. {see John 17:15) 

B. A Christian self- understanding: 
In order for a person to be able to 
function properly as an individual he 
needs to have a satisfactory under- 
standing of himself. Basic to this 
selfunderstanding are the answers to 
questions related to his origin, his 
nature, his potential, and the purpose 
and point of his existence. 

Secular education is doing much to 
help people understand the physical, 
psychological, and social aspects of 
their lives. This certainly is a step in 
the right direction. But it is both 
insufficient and misleading because it 
ignores the some of the essenHal 
aspects of man's basic human nature 
and does not take into consideration 

his predicament as a sinful being. 

Secular education will always fail to 
help the learner gain a full under- 
standing of himself because besides 
being a rational, social, valuing, and 
historical being, he is first of all a 
religious being. The Bible teacher 
that man is a created being died inlu 
existence by the Creator of the 
universe. He was made by God and in 
the image of God. Consequently, 
man's very being, his dignity and 
worth, his greatness and smajjness. ^^ 
his wisdom and folly will all find their o^^ 

real dimension only when measured 

with the Creator himself 

In view of this, religion must bf 

seen as the irreplaceable partner oi . 

education because, in the last analysis, 

true self-knowledge can be achieved 

only in the context of a personal 

relationship with God. 


Bonny Oaks proudly describi 
operating, an the sign at 



DCarol Belknap 

So far this school year there has 
been a variety of activities with the 
younger boys from Bonny Oaks. For 
the first "get acquainted" activity, the 
boys played games-there was much 
laughter and squeals of delight as 
college students and boys dressed up 
in old clothes for a relay race, and 
great excitement as the boys tried to 
steal the bacon first and make it back 
safely to their side without getting 

Other activities this school year 
have included hiking on Grindstone 
Mountain, walking along the lakeshore 
at Harrison Bay and skipping rocks 
and floating old logs, burying each 
other in a pile of old dry leaves, 
climbing the tower at Chickamauga 
Battle Field, singing vigorous songs 
such as I'm in the Lord's Army and // 
You're Happy and You Know It with 
all the actions included, carving jack- 
o-lantcrns from pumpkins, and going 
to hear the Heritage Singers in the 
Col lege dale Church. 

Beneath the fun of all these 
e lies something much 

deeper--a precious relationship be- 
tween a college student and a boy. 
From talkative Gary who desperately 
longs for love and security yet has a 
difficult time responding to love and 
admitting that he likes someone, to 
gentle, loving Terry who likes every- 
one and would do anything for you. 
and from slow-to-understand yet loyal 
Raymond to quick-minded, happy-go- 
lucky Maurice, and little David who 
wins your love with his mischievious 
grin, each is unique but very special. 

Bonny Oaks is also a rewarding 
experience for the big brother and big 
sister. The joy on the face of a little 
brother when he is visited, the small 
comments he makes which reveal how 
much his big brother means to him, 
and the deep satisfaction of knowing 
that you are helping someone more 
than repay all your efforts. 

In giving of them selves, they have 
received a far greater blessing. The 
Bonny Oaks School motto--'"Mighty 
Oaks from Littly Acorns"-also aptly 
states the goal. What a privilege there 
is in helping to mold these boys into 
"mighty oaks" and to point them to 
Jesus their best Friend.

"Within the past 10 years we have 
given approximately 1600 concerts like 
the one we are presenting tonight," 
said Dean Wilder during his concert 
with Robert Hale Wednesday night, 
January 19. 

Robert Hale and Dean Wilder, a 
singing team which has been traveling 
in their "spare time" for the past 10 
years, presented the sacred concert in 
the Coliegedale Church. 

This vocal duo has been heard by 
gatherings of Christians all over North 
America as well as in Europe and Asia. 
In addition to a time consuming vocal 
occupation, these men, and Ovid 
Young their accompaniest, are separ- 
atelyengaged in their own professions. 

Robert Hale, 6'1 at 190 lbs., is the 
leading bass-baritone of the New York 
City Opera Company where he per- 
forms with such greats as Beverly 

Dean Wilder is presently the 

Director of Vocal Studies at William 
Jewell College, Liberty, Missouri, 
which is a four-year christian liberal 
arts college. Mr. Wilder is a large 
6'5" and weighs, as Robert Hale put 
it, "only God knows how much." 

Ovid Young, who has been with the 
duo from the start, seems to be the 
busiest of the three. 

In addition to his duties as conduct- 
or of the Kankakee Symphony, of 
Illinois, he divides his time between 
college teaching, solo recitals (organ 
and piano), arranging for publication 
and recording, accompaning Hale and 
Wilder, and duo-piano concerts with 
pianist Stephen Nielson. 

Their concert was colored by duets, 
solos and piano solos. Some of the 
duets were: Now Sing We Joyfidly 
Unto God: Amazing Grace; Closeto 
Thee; Guide Me. Thou Great

radiation of heated diatomic molecules. The following week he is to present a 
report to the American.Physical Society, on the same subject, at its annual 
meeting in Chicago. . „ . 

The research has been in progress since 1972, partially at SMC and 
partially at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where Dr. HeRerIm is on 
Sabbatical leave this year. Jorge Rechas and Joe Mashburn participated in 
the research while they were undergraduate Physic students at SMC. 
Scientists in Germany and Canada have collaborated with the project also. 

York University is one of the world centers in this area of research. 

The "Center for Research in Experimental Space Science" has been on the 

-^ forefront of molecular spectroscopy for years, studying the molecules found m 

) the atmospheres of the earth and other planets, including pollution caused by 

human enploration and travel. 

As laboratories have measured properties of these molecules, the SMC 
scientists have attempted to collect the world literature and to discover 
systematic trends in the numbers when compared from one molecule to 
another. For instance, they expected to find, and did find, similarities in the 
behaviour of the light emitted by fluorine, chlorine, and bromine.

Letters to the Editor 

Hi. This is David Kay and Irene Ruprecht writing from Bogenhofen 
College in Austria. Today is Wednesday, so we have some time to write to 
you all. We get every Wednesday off here because we go to school on 

We really appreciated the Christmas tape that several of you sent. Being 
so far away from home, even though we're not under adverse conditions, it's 
nice to hear from friends back home. 

Our class trip to Rome is something we'll never forget. Our first day we 
spent in Venic5. It was almost like being in a dreamworid. The grand canal 
was so impressive! They don't have cars there -- everyone has to go by boat, 
gondola, or foot. And the city is actually sinking! There are humongous 
water puddles on the little sidewalk streets. 

We ate spaghette in our first Italian restaurant there in Venice. It was really 
cheap- and delicious!! 

In Florence we stayed with nuns in a monastery. It really changed our 
opinion of nuns radically! We thought they were just boxed up and never did 
anything for anybody, but they were some of the nicest people in the world! ! 

Rome was interesting from the start. Our hotel was in a bad section of 
town, kind of dirty. The garbage collectors were on strike and there was 
paper everywhere! We stayed there four days and saw the Colloseum. the 
Romar Forum, the Pantheon, the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel, and the 

The catacombs are underground tombs where the early Christians hid out. 
We had a Catholic priest for our guide who spoke only broken EngHsh. He 
told us that it was the custom to sing a song in front of this one grave. Well, 
you know Adventisls, we know every song in the world. We sang a song, and 
then another, and then another. We sang right through the whole tour and 
that poor guide had a hard time describing everything. There are over 
100,000 graves in there, one half from infant mortalities. 

On Sabbath we had the opportunity to visit our SDA church in Rome. We 
expected an Italian sermon, but were fortunate to hear Pastor Thompson, one 
of the GC secretaries. His sermon was translated into Italian. So we heard our 
first English sermon in 3 months! ! Otherwise, we always hear German here in 

It was neat being in a church in Rome and relating to the book of Romans. 
It really does something for you!! 

From Rome, we went to Pompeii, Naples, and Pisa. On top of the Leaning 
Tower we got to watch a soccer game being played in a soccer stadium near 
the tower. Everybody was yelling everytime a goal was scored! ! We also got 
to through a paper airplane from the topi! 

Going through the Alps at nighi on the way back to Bogenhofen really 
touched us. There was a lot of real sticky type snow that clung to the tees and 
grassandmadesomeof the prettiest designs. And the moon was out. It was 
a fairyland - just indescribable . . . We enjoyed every minute of it. 

Nert time we write we'll tell you about Bogenhofen. 

We wish you the best and hope to hear from you soon.

Students in Professor Willam 
Bathje's anthropology class think the 
Tiaterial he offers really stinks, 
okay with them. 
Rathje's University of Arizona 
lasses study garbage, not the usual 
id of college course garbage but the 
odiferous McCoy: gooey, smelly, 
jowaway trash, huge mangey 
lounds of it complete with rats, empty 
ike bottles and bulkly plastic sacks of 
Icky TV dinners. 
The students gleefully wade into 
foul-smelling mess, clad in high

"Le Projet" has received more 
than 1,000 information request. Each 
time the course is offered about 80 

students sign up and everybody within 
the university has given it great 
support. "Garbage is more recog-

The students' espirit de corps 
appears to be in pretty good shape as 
well. They wear T-shirts emblazoned 
with the words "Le Projet du Gar-

reaching into an overflowing rubbish 
bin. They've formed a softball team 
which plays Tucson's trash men and 
after foraging missions on Friday 
nights the class repairs to a local 
saloon to talk some trash. Last 
Halloween Rathje threw a party at 
which students came dressed as their 
favorite piece of garbage. A stuffed

honorable mention going to a fruit fly 
and a box of crackers. cont,on page 6.

exclaimed, giving him a quick hug. 

But he wriggled free and went on

The Children's Center is not like a 
kindergarten, although there are a few 
planned activities every day in which 
the children are encouraged to partici-

Conquer Exams! 

DCourtesy of Association of American 
Publishers student service. 

"Depend on it. sir, when a man 
knows he is to be hanged in a 
fortnight, it concentrates his mind 

Samuel Johnson might well have 
been talking to students about 
pre-examination time and that 
gnawing feeling of foreboding! 
Examinations can concentrate one's 
mind wonderfully, but in a positive, 
practical manner that will not only 
increase your learning potential but 
help your performance. 

The key to both success in exams 
and enjoyment of college work lies in 
the ability to use time wisely. A 
pattern of good study habits begins as 
the term begins, but nowhere do you 
need them more than at examination 
time. You will be able to handle exams 
with a minimum of stress if you 
observe these six suggested steps: 

1 . Make a term study plan 

2. Use good review techniques 

3. Develop a confident attitude 

4. Organize pre-exam hours 

5. Pace the exam carefully 

6. Reassess your work 

At the beginning of each term 
develop a daily schedule. Allocate 
time for class preparation, study. 
review, recreation, eating and 

A study area is important. Have on 
hand the texts, study guides, outlines, 
dictionaries and reference books, 
paper, pads, notebooks, that will allow 
you lo concentrate without 

Study and review differ from each 
other. Study refers to learning 
something for the first time. Review is 
critical because it strengthens your 
retention of this new knowledge by 
viewing it as part of a whole. 

Forgetting lakes place most rapidly 
right after learning. Review and 
recall, therefore, are more effective 
soon after study. After each class, go 
over the main points for ten to fifteen 
minutes to reinforce them in your 

Don '( overtax your memory or 
stamina. Research shows that most 
people can absorb and retainj'ist so 
much knowledge at one time. It's 

important to study day by day. week 
by week. Each period of study should 
be no longer than one or'one and a half 
hours, followed by recreation. 

Take legible class and study notes. 
Throughout the term underline your 
textbooks and make pertinent notes m 
the margins. 

Preparing for exams is largely a 
question of review. The time needed 
is not as Extensive as some students 
think, provided you have been 
consistent in your work. You should 
be able to review for weekly quizzes in 
no more than fifteen minutes, for a 
mid-term hour exam in two to three 
hours, and for a final exam in five to 
eight hours. 

Your preparation for a final exam 
should be carefully scheduled into the 
two weeks prior to exam day. 
Organize a plan that does not interfere 
with your regular study for on-going 

Plan your review systematically. 
Use textbook chapter headings or your 
instructor's outline as guide. Go from 
chapter notes to class notes, recalling 
important headings and ideas. If some 
points are unclear, reread the 

Making summary notes is helpful. 
In four to eight pages, outline the main 
points of your detailed class and text 
notes, This helps reinforce the major 
ideas and important details. 

Summary notes can also ser\'e as a 
self-test toward the end of your 
preparation for exams. Put a sheet 
over each page and slowly uncover the 
first heading. See if you can 
remember the main points listed 

Try to predict the exam questions. 
Be alert throughout the term to the 
emphasis instructors put on certain 
topics, ideas or aspects. 

Ask your professor what he 
recommends for pre -examination 
work. Use these comments as a guide 
but don't try to outguess him or her. 

Group reviewing can be helpful. 
Limit discussions of significant points 
and possible test questions to thirty or 
forty-five minutes, with no more than 
four or five people. 

Avoid cramming. If you have 
followed a regular schedule of study 
and review, you should not have to be continued next week

Picture yourself attending a weight 
lifting competion. The competitor has 
just placed the barbells back on the 
floor with a clink of metal and an 
audible sigh of relief. 

Suddenly there is a stir among the 
spectators. A small girl appears to 
make a noble effort to deadlift the 300 
pound barbells. She makes the lift 
successfully! The crowd applauds 
with a great roar of approval. 

"1 think that of all my experiences 
with weight lifting, that was the most 
interesting and frightening, too. I 
thought that there would be at least 
one or two other women there," said 
Rebecca Joubert, UTC physical educa- 
tion major and weight lifting enthu- 

Rebecca had been urged to enter the 
meet while involved in weight lifting at 
a health spa. Upon arrival at 
Tennessee Tech., she discovered that 
she would be the only woman in the 

"It was really rather scarey at first. 
There I was surrounded by male 
participants. 1 was to try to deadlift 
300 pounds. {The deadlift involves 
raising a weight from the floor to a 
standing position). But I had to give it 
a try since I was there. So 1 did and 
succeeded," said Joubert with a 

Rebecca Joubert, age 21, who 
comes form Athens, Tennessee admits 
to having been somewhat of a tomboy 
when growing up. 

"I remember loving to play ball 
when 1 was little and just running 
around playing," she said. "I have 
always been interested in sports, so 
when I went to college, 1 decided on a 
P.E. major. Weight lifting is a kind of 
hobby for me." 

The small weight lifter spends 
three days a week working out in the 
Y.M.C.A.gym. The sessions involve 
one and one-half hours of practice each 

The various categories or classes in 
weight lifting competition are Four, 
Three, Two. One, Master and Elite. 
Rebecca at 132 pounds is classified as 
Four, accomplishing a weight lifting 
total of 795 pounds. 

"That is not to say that I lifted 795 
pounds all at once. It is the combined 
poundage of three lifts-the dead lift, 
bench press and squat," she ex- 
plained. "1 hope eventually to break 

the record that is currently in the 1 
Guiness Book of World Records by 
deadlifting 400 pounds." 

The little UTC student is actively I 
involved in various meets. These take | 
place every month, but Rebecca tries 
to atend one every other month, 
Looking to the not too distant future, 
she plans to compete in Hawaii jo ] 

"My family likes the idea of my I 
involvement in the sport. They I 
encourage me whenever they can, all I 
of which I really appreciate. They ai 
understanding and helpful. My father I 
hopes that eventually there will be I 
powerlifting competitons for won 
the Olympics. But I don't know I 
whether or not I will still be into | 
weightliftingby then. As I said, it is 
hobby with me. I do it for enjoyment I 
and don't see myself continuing I 
forever with the thing," Rebecca | 
added smiling. 

Who knows? Perhaps the Olympic I 
Committee wUl some day include I 
weight lifting for women in the events. T 
Possibly this may occur before ■ 
Athens' prodigy decides to abandon I 
her unusual hobby. At any rate, for ■ 
the present, Rebecca remains hopera I

A Balanced Mind 

From the Religion Depf... ^ 

Principles In Interpreting Scripture 

Part 1 

pGertrude Battle 

I In many places in the writing of 

;. White she mentions the impor- 
__„ je of balanced minds. I did not 
quite understand what a balanced 
mind meant until I had an experience 
in Washington, D.C. 
I was doing practical nursing at the 
time. Many of my patients were 
senile, hi many nursing homes there 
were senile elderly people, and some 
not so elderly. 1 used to wonder what 
aused this particular mental condi- 
fioD. . 

1 was nursing a lady who lived 
within walking distance of the Library 
Of Congress. She had been a school 
teacher for many years, and had been 
. Btired at the age of 65. Immediately 
ie had gone into this senile condition. 
■ She has never done anything but 
teach school, and her only hobby was 
playing bridge. 

! had a few hours off in the 
■fternoons, and decided one day to go 
over to the Library and look in the 
Medical Section to see what 1 could 
find on this subject. One doctor 
.explained it in laymen's language. He 
said that if a person bound his arm up 
forty years, it would become useless. 
ilhe parts of our brain that we do not 

,e die eventually. When these brain 
cells die they are never replaced. 
I Alcohol also destroys brain cells. The 
■ianiage is permanent. 

Senility is no respecter of persons, 
n affect all classes of people, 
ians, scientists, teachers, house- 
_..... farmers and even government 
porkers who have worked in one office 
irmany years and then retire. 

Then I began to realize what Mrs. 
"hite meant by balanced minds, and 
e importance of it. There are three 
ings in the worid that are inexhaust- 
, »le, the Bible, the Spirit of Prophecy 
I writings, and the human brain. None 
of us uses but a small percentage of 
our brains, not even the most learned 
and the most scholarly. There is no 
end to the capacity of the human bram 

It is the computer of all computers. 

I was in my early forties at the 
time, and I began to realize that I could 
do something to prevent my becoming 
senile if I began right away. I 
remembered something else that \ had 
read in Mrs. White's writings, that we 
should stretch our minds. One way to 
do this is in the study of the Bible, the 
deep things, of the Bible. "The mind 
will enlarge if it is employed in tracing 
out the relation of the subjects of the 
Bible, comparing Scripture with Scrip- 
ture and spiritual things with spiritual 
things." S.C. 86,88. 

'Through the years since that time 
the study of the Bible and the writings 
of Mrs. White have been a source of 
delight and wonder to me, I never 
cease to marvel at the beautiful 
harmony in both. The more I study, 
the more 1 sense that 1 am just getting 

" There are three things 
in the worid that are 
inexhaustible, the Bible, 
the Spirit of Prophecy 
writings, and the human 
brain " 

my toes wet in that great ocean of 
knowledge contained in both. My 
capacity for grasping great truths has 
increased as well as my memory. I 
hunger and thirst after God's Word 
daily, and never get enough of it. 

Children's and youth's minds are 
like sponges. They are soaking up 
everytiiing at this age and retain it. 
When people get old they don't retam 
the things they learn then. How 
important it is for young people to 
acquu-e a taste for tiie best in life and 
in learning. In 2T. 410 we are told that 
"It is impossible for youth to possess a 
healtiiy tone of mind and correct 
religious principles unless they enjoy 
the perusal of the Word of God." 

Young people do not need to sow 
wUd oats. Wild oats leave scars, 
permanent scars. Always there are 
regrets for the time lost if nothing else. 
This is not necessary, cont. 

DFrank Holbrook 

Central to the Christian faith -.^ 
the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New 
Testaments. Christianity is someti 
referred to as a revealed religion 
upon two basic premises 

There is a God, and (2) this God has 

revealed Himself to mankind in the 

Holy Scriptures. While it is true that t^g Bible teacning rrom me wcij 

God speaks to us tiirough the voice of evidence presented by the whole 

Nature, and has given us His fullest of Scripture. In view of its Source 

TRVplarinn in thfi ner^nn nf His Son. must have the grace of humility 

the prophets, and in the psalms" 
(Luke 24:44). 

There may be obscure passages on 
a given subject, but if we follow 
Christ's procedure and bring all th« 
passages on that subject together, the 
plain statements will illuminate the 
obscure ones and we can understand 
the Bible teaching from the weight of 

revelation in the person of His Son, 
Jesus Christ, yet it is the Scriptures 
which righdy interpret Nature for us, 
and it is the Scriptures which record 
the acts and teachings of Jesus Christ. 
The nature of the Holy Scriptures 
indicates how they are to be studied. 
These sacred writings did not come to 
man in one whole. Rather 
period of 1600 years, they we 
piece by piece as God saw His people 
able to receive further revelations of 
His will. Hence, we may speak of 
progressive revelation, a further un- 
folding of the Divine will (cf. Heb. 
1:1,2), as a flower develops from a 
bud, no new revelation ever contra- 
dicting the old. This impartationof the 
mind of God through the Bible writers ,„ „„_^ 
was by means of the operation of the doctrine 
HolySpirit. (2 Peter 1:20,21). Hence, 
Scripture is said to be given "by 
inspiration of God (literally, "God 
breathed") and thus, although God's 
thoughts are written in human lan- 
guage, the Scriptures are trustworUiy 
and provide sufficient knowledge of 
God's Plan for our salvation. (2 Tim. 

Two principles of interpretation 
may be derived from the above data 
concerning the nature of the Holy 
Scriptures. (1) Since the Holy Spirit is 
the essential Author of the various 
portions of the Bible as they 

realize that we may never in this life 
understand all the mysteries the Bible 
touches on. But sufficient is revealed 
that none need be lost (cf. Deut. 

(2) The second principle pertains 

to the attitude of Uie reader. The 

— - "natural man" is not open to spiritual 

given truth (I Cor. 2:14). The Holy Spirit is 

'" both Author and Illuminator. He alone 

can open to the human mind what the 
Scriptures teach. "He will guide" the 
reader into "all truth" (/the reader 
will come to the Bible in the attitude of 
a learner, desiring to know the will of 
God to do it. "if any man will do his 
will (meaning, if any chooses, desires 
to obey God) he shall know of the 
(John 7:17).

The Role Of Religion In Education 

□ Helmut Ott 

While religion is indispensable to 
provide the learner with accurate 
information about himself, the world, 
and the purpose of life, its highest 
contribution is to enable him to 
C-':perience a transformation of char- 

According to the scriptures, man's 
Irae human identity is that of a sinner 
in constant need of a Savior. Sin has 
distorted his values and degraded his 
nature to the point that, while he is 
able to see the right and cherish the 
good, all too often he does not want the 
^8ht nor is he able to/o//ow the good. 
But the Bible also shows that in spite 
°f its terrible effects, sin failed to 
crradicate God's stamp of creation in 
"an completely. Man still has the 
Potential for spiritual development, 
^"•nething deep in his heart is both 

searching for God and also capable of 
responding to Him. While m his 
present condition he is lost, he can be 
reconciled with God. He is redeem- 

What man's redemption means 
and how it is to be attained is what 
splits the camp into "secu ar and 
"religious" education. Secular ed- 
ucation Umits man's redemption to life 
in the "here and now' ' and attempts to 
bring it about through enlightenment 
and sheer determination. Religious

cannot bridge by himself.

Thousands of leaves fell last sem- 
ester here on our campus. No. not the 
multi-colored variety that falls from 
trees, but the type referred to in 4T 79 
"the message of truth is to go to all 
nations, tongues and people: its 
publications are to be scattered 
abroad like the leaves of autumn." 
"Leaves of Autumn" is a part of 
your Campus Ministry/ Camp us Evan- 
gelism organization. "Leaves of 
Autumn" buys books and publications 
to supply the needs of the student 
body. This allows the students to give 
awav all types of literature at no cost to 

Last semester over 3,500 books 
were distributed. Specifically. Desire 
of Ages. Steps to Christ. Ministry of 
Healing. Great Controversy and Bible

Thousands of other materials were 
given also. These were mainly Bible 
enrollment cards, and Bible study

Have you ever tried to preach to a 
bunch of empty pews? Well that's 
almost what it's like in Homiletics 
class. There are three Homiletics labs 
that meet twice a week in Talge Hall 
Chapel during the day at the following 
times: Tuesday and Thursday at 10:00 
and at 1:00. Wednesday and Friday at 
10:00. The labs consist of approxi- 
mately ten students so the chapel looks 
pretty empty when that "preacher" 
gets up to speak. 

If you would like to encourage 
felow students as they speak and gain 
a rich spiritual blessing at the same 
time, then attend as many of the 
preaching labs as possible. Your 
attendance would be appreciated. The 
following list is a schedule of the 
various students and their appointed 
times for preaching for the month of 
February. Cut this out and keep it so 
that you can keep track of the labs that 
you would like to attend.

The freezing chill of winter 
bringing snow to cover frost. 
The bitter wind of autumn 
Was warmer than we thought. 

But how beautihil the snow flake 
With" its intricate design 
Giving birth to more new evidence 
Of God's creative mind. 

And what's the purpose for these 
Ballerinas white in dress? 
Ah the waste of mankind efforts 
To destroy their loveliness 

Is there more to see in snowflakes 
Than a blanket for the earth 
Or a rolled up man of ice 
Where a child has placed worth? 

Has our Father again been speaking 
And like before we have not heard? 

Is the snow another method 
Of revealing love that's sure? 

Oh each snowflake is so different 
Like God's children everyone. 
\nd each of them are helpless 
Like the snowflake on the ground. 

And I cannot dismiss the beauty 
And the purity that snow brings 
How it covers scars from autumn 
That brought the death at last year's 

It's likened with our Savior 
How with His blood He covered sin. 
And the sacrifice He made 
That we might be drawn to Him. 

Yes, let us enjoy those winter months 
And the joy that comes with them. 
But don't forget that God is near 
For in each snowflake you can see

GC President Pierson To Speak Here 

Robert Howard Pierson, General 
Conference President of Seventh-day 
Adventists, will be appearing on the 
SMC campus next week, February 
11-12. Pierson will be the guest 
speaker for the Student Association 
vespers and will deliver the sermon for 
both services of the Collegedale 
Church Sabbath morning, February 

Don Ashlock, Director of Campus 
Ministries, requested that Pierson 
come to SMC and have a question-and- 
answer session with students concer- 
ning the world-wide work of the 
church. This Firing Line will be held 
at 3:00 p.m. in the College gym on 
February 12. 

Ashlock said those students who do 
"not wish to express their questions 


audibly may submit them to the 
Campus Ministry office #5 in the 
Student Center." He also stated 
Pierson would not take any question as 

~ a personal offense. 

"Students should be thinking now 
of questions to ask Elder Pierson", 
said Ashlock. Several students have 
expressed excitement that they will 
have an opportunity to address the GC 

Pierson began his denominational 
'-■-./- employment as a pastor and evangelist 
in 1933 in the Georgia-Cumberiand 
conference. He soon became Ga.- 
Cum. Conference Home Missionary 
and Sabbath School secretary. 

In 1935, he went to the Southeast 

Asia division to become pastor of the 

he Bombay church and director of lay- 
he man's activities in the West India 
Union. Four years later, in 1939. he 
served as South India Union president 

until 1942. 

During World War II, Pierson 
pastored in Washington D.C.. and was 
involved in radio evangelism in New 
York City. In 1950 he returned to the 
mission field to serve as a top 
administrator in the West Indies and 
Caribbean Union, and then to the 
presidency of the Southern Asia 

He came back to the States for four 
years to preside over the Kentucky- 
Tennessee Conference and later in 
Texas. In 1958 Pierson assumed the 
presidency of the Trans-African 

On June 17, 1966 Elder Pierson 
succeeded the retiring R.R. Figuhr as 
President of the General Conference. 
He has held that position ever since. 

PE Magazine Returns 

HOPE magazine will be published 
again next week, according to Don 
Ashloclt, editor. 

One year ago an idea sparked in 
ttie minds of Uvo students while 
driving up a Texan highway heading 
for SMC. After talking, the desire of a 
student publication with a spiritual 
emphasis became a reality, and a staff 
of six students was formed. HOPE 

Although God's blessings 
being poured out, a problem of 
financial support endangered the con- 
tinuation of the magazine. However, 
the staff did not doubt that God was 
protecting His work, and soon the 
Student Association senate voted to 
shoulder HOPE'S financial respon- 
sibility and three more issues were 
printed before the 1975-76 school year 

The purpose of HOPE, as de- 
clared in its first issue dated February 
12, 1976 is: HOPE has come to SMC. 
h has come .with the aim and purpose 
to vibrantly inspire hope in your 
Christian experience. HOPE is to be 
your spiritual paper on campus - foun- 
ded, sponsored and run on answers to 
prayers. HOPE is for you. We are 
seeking to serve some of your spiritual 
needs in the following ways: As An 
outlet to help you share what the Lord 
has done for you, and to read how He 
is alive and doing well here at SMC. 
Provide the whens, wheres. and whats 
of the spiritual activities on campus, 
and in the surrounding area." 

The first issue of HOPE concerned 
the subject of devotions. The second 
presented trials, and two others on 
brotherly love and finding God's will 
■^ere published last year. 

ue Dublished in November 

of this school year covered ftiendship 
with Jesus. At the beginning of next 
week HOPE will deal with "A new 
road; the experience of being bom 
again". Five other issues are due to 
be published before the end of this 
semester. HOPE will spori - --■'

The Curriculum Committee has 
approved increasing the "Issues in

to two semesters, for six hours credit. 
Dr. Ray Hefferlin has been locating 
interesting material for the course 
during his Sabbatical year.

Religion section of general education 

The two semesters will be offered 
next year. Here is a description of the 
subjects. A major addition is the 
section on science versus technologv 
which was at one time reserved for a 

course by that name. 

Student to Challenge Car Stickers 

Physician Gives Another Reason 
For Coffee Boyc< 

When it comes to coffee. Why not 
quit instead of boycotting?" suggests 
Agatha M. Thrash, MD, director of 
Pathology Labs in Columbus, Georgia. 
"With prices soaring, now is the ideal 
time to quit drinking coffee. In 
addition to economic reasons, there 
arc sound health reasons for kicking 
the caffeine habit." 

Three major diseases are aggra- 
vated by caffeine, according to Dr. 
Thrash--heart trouble, peptic ulcers, 
and diabetes or hypoglycemia. 

"America's most prevalent disease 
is heart trouble, which is linked with 
high blood cholesterol. Even one cup 
of cxiffee daily over a period of time is 
likely to raise your blood cholesterol. 
If a person regularly drinks one to five 


cups of coffee a day, his risk of having' 
a heart attack is 60 percent higher than 
if he drinks none. 

"The second prevalent disease 
that can be caused by caffeine is peptic 
ulcers. Ulcers in children have 
become more common as the use of 
caffeinated beverages, such as cola 
drinks, has become more widespread,' 
said Dr. Thrash. 

"The third disease related to 
caffeine is diabetes, or hypoglycemia, 
two faces of the same disease. One of 
every five to six people you see already 
has diabetes, and 30 million more are 
on the way. Caffeine specifically 
injures the pancreas and makes dia- 
betes and hypoglycemia much worse, " 
she claimed. 

It all started because of a speeding 
violation. Gary Eldridge, a resident of 
Talge Hall here at SMC was stopped 
by a Police Officer January 22. During 
the course of the conversarion that 
followed, Eldridge was asked by the 
officer if he had registered his car in 
Collegedale by purchasing a road 
sticker, and Gary answered that he

Orchestra Elects Officers 

The Symphony Orchestra elected 
officers for the spring semester Tues- 
day, January 25. Elected were 
Ormand Jones, President; Jani Han- 
son, Social Vice-President: Vanessa 
Greenleaf, Secretary- PR. 

This is the first time officers have 
been selected. According to Mr. Orio 
Gilbert, director, the purpose in 
having the election was to bring some 
unity and fun into the organization. 
Two activities have been planned to 
help the members get better ac- 
quainted: a Saturday night social and a 
weekend camping trip to Cades Cove. 

If anyone would like to become 
involved with the orchestra and play 
either the string bass, cello, viola, or 

violin, there are still openings. 
Contact Mr. Gilbert at 296-4273 to set 
up an audition time. 


Mike Bradley, news director of 
WSMC-FM has left this position to 
begin studies at the Loma Linda School 
of Dentistry, Loma Linda, California. 

His position will be taken over by 
Chris Lindsey, a SMC graduate in 
Communications Media. Lindsey has

local level as a reporter in Calhoun, 
Georgia and has produced and written

File Labor Assignments 


"The school has cheated me," I 
said, as 1 stared at my school bill. 
SMC has cheated me out of the money 
I sweated and toiled for. 

I marched down to the accounting 
office, and looked Mrs. Bennett 
straight in the eye and said, "Why 
wasn't I payed this month?" She 
looked me straight in the eye and said, 
"It is written, any student employed 
by the college must sign a labor 
assignment sheet before receiving 
their wages." "Ohl" I said with 

If you are one of those 45 or 50 
students who have not filed a labi 
assignment with your employer, do ■ 
as soon as possible, or soon, you tc„ 
will be making the march to the 
accounting office. Labor assignments 
can be attained at the Office of Student 

Employers should return the white 
copy of the labor assignment sheet to 
the Office of Student Finance when a 
student terminates their employment 
stating the reason why the employ- 
ment was terminated. 

for doing so he 
stated was simply because the rule 
was unconstitutional, forcing non-legal 
residents like himself to buy the 
sticker and therefore having to support 
two towns instead of one. 

Eldridge will be appearing in court 
on February 9. He has hired a lawyer 
to represent him and plans on taking 
his case as far as he can in hopes of 
winning. Gary says he is doing this 
because he feels that he is being 
unfairly taken advantage of by this 
ruling and hopes that his case will 
prove to be a benefit to others with the 
same problem in the future. 

A defense fund is being started to 
help Eldridge pay the legal fees. He is 
also searching for additional inform-

1 Miranda 

If Jenny Steger were in her 
hometown, she would be enjoying a 
90° climate, beaches, palm trees; a 
tropical Paradise. Jenny was bom in 
Quito, Ecuador. She is now a 
sophomore Occupational Therapy 
major at SMC. 

As a daughter of missionary 
parents, Jenny had the opportunity to 
live in the jungles and mountains of 
Ecuador. From there, her parents 
went to Bolivia, where shfe and her 
four sisters lived four to five years. 

She recalls going to a German 
School in Bolivia. Her native language 
was German, and at this school she 
was taught Spanish. At that time the 
Che Guevara rebels stoned the main 
public buildings on the town square, 
where the school was. Jenny and her 
sisters hurried home, taking a dif- 
ferent route through the country to 
avoid the rebels. 

Among her cherished memories in 
Bolivia is when, at Christmas, she and 
her sisters went door-to-door and gave 
away little bags filled with popcorn 
and small toys. That offered them the 
opportunity to make contacts and give 
out literature to their new-found 

From Bolivia, Jenny's parents 
were called to Juliaca, Peru, to be in 
charge of the Adventist Hospital there. 
Juliaca is 15,000 feet above sea-level; 
about 100 kilometers from Lake 
Titicaca. Jenny recalls visiting a 
floating island on this lake, which 
nouses an Adventist school. 

Jenny can best remember the 
pictoresque beauty of Juliaca. She 
describes the vast plain, surrounded 
^y the tallest mountains, covered with 
snow. The blackness of the mountains 
contrast sharply with the baby-blue 
sky. Small, yellow shrubbery grows 
from a reddish soil. White wooly 
llamas and alpacas are seen grazing on 
these. "It would make a beautiful 
workofart". she states, "if somebody 
«uld paint it." 

Of all the places where Jenny has 
I'ved. this is the one she loves best. 
The Adventist work in Juliaca has a 
stronghold there". Jenny says. 

One experience she recalls was 
getting stuck in the middle of a river 
a van, and having to unload 

packages, carry them across the river, 
and then return for the van. There are 
many rivers without bridges in South 
America. The cars have to float 

After two years 
Peru, Jenny's parents again moved; 
this time to Lima, the capital of Peru. 
Jenny recalls another experience of 
which she is grateful to God for the 
way He cared and protected her family 
during their ministry 

They were going to I 
Bolivia on a dark night. Tht 
roads are narrow and there are many 
rivers at the bottom of the precipices. 
The driver fell asleep as they 
proceeded around a curve, he realized 
what was happening soon enough to 
step on the brakes. 

The van turned over and the back 
end hung over the precipice. Jenny's 
mother, the only one conscious, was 
afraid that the gas tank would ignite 
and explode. She began to throw out 
everything from the van to find her 
family. Jenny was tossed out, by 
mistake, along with everything else 
down the precipi 

Her father and oldest sister almost 
suffocated, and her younger 
neck was under the gas tank. 

Moments later, a truck filled with 
Indians drove by. They immediately 
helped. No one was seriously hurt, 
and after the ordeal was ov^r. Jenny 
and her family knelt in prayer and 
thanked God for the miracle. 

Jenny and her family now live in 
Canada. She has had the opportunity 
to visit in many South American 
countries. Someday

The News-Free Press on Sunday morning carried the story of third floor 
and the record-breaker of 242 guys climbing the wall. The paper gave good 
coverage to this event. , , ^ j ij ..o= *« 

We are wondering - what if we had 242 guys or gals who God could use to 
do what the disciples did of old. 

It was written of them - these are the ones who have turned our worid 
upside down. (Aicts 17:6) 

Isn't it time for that to be said about us today? 

What the disciples did. we can do if we place ourselves totally in the hands 
of God. God is waiting for such a commitment. 

It is good to have news coverage about fun & games, but where is the news 
of the salvation of God and His matchless love for His lost children.

Letters to the Editor 


Dear Editor, 

! thoroughly enjoyed "Nicholas 
and Alexandra" and was considerably 
upset to see a notice a few days later 
from the film preview committee, 
more or less apologizing for slipping 
up and promising to avoid similar 
situations in the future.

Dear Editor. 

1 am wondering if Ron Gladden did 
not use an irrelevant argument when 
he made reference to Exodus 21:12 
("He that smiteth a man so that he 
shall die, shall surely be put to 
death.") Is this text not a portion of 
the Levitical Law? If these laws are 
aplicible to us today, what about 
capital punishment for stealing and 
perversion In sex, ect....How should 
the Bible be interpreted? Do we have 
the right to disregard one of the 10 
commandments? If the same system

and then complained about the 
school's judgement. 

I feel that perhaps it would be in 
order for the college to recognize its 
primary duty to provide worthwhile 
entertainment for its students rather 
than pandering to the tender minds of 
the pre-pubescent audience in the 
community. True, the college has a 
responsibility to the community, but if 
college students are served academy, 
or lower, le.vel entertainment, it's not 
to be wondered that so many of them 
desert the campus on weekends and 
satisfy their need for recreation and 
entertainment in their own ways.

our government. Exodus 21:12 might 
be a safe guideline for the death 
penalty issue it seems, however, in 
comparing Exodus 21 with Exodus 20 
we would find the latter to be the 
guideline for present day living. Do 
we, as sinful humans, have the 
authority to exterminate the exclusive 
gift of God? It is within our realm of 
duty to purposeful! cut a sinner's life 
short, leaving no time for the Holy 
Spirit to work? Or, have we elevated 
ourselves to such a haughty plane that 
we feel qualified to do the work of God.

SC To Be Redesigned 


i Wayman 

The Student Center Redecoration 
ommittee, a group of 15 faculty and 
students, decided to accept the pro- 
posed plans of interior designer Mr. 
Harold Duckett. 

Duckett attended SMC, but gradu- 
ated with an Art History major from 
the University of Tennessee at Chat- 

Kiga. He then opened an interior 
design firm in Knoxville, Tennessee. 
ior Associates, now in its fourth 
year of business, designs banks, 
schools, restaurants, and private resi- 
dences. Duckett also teaches the 
design class Professional Practices at 

The suggested model, dubbed 
"The Mountains", is now on display 
in the Student Center. Duckett 
created this design to accommodate 
the needs and functions of a student 
center.- The model includes areas for 
individual and informal group seating 
and consists of a series of elevated 
upholstered platforms which will seat 
75-100 people. The main body of the 
platforms will be carpeted in warm 
brown, and the seating units in red 
and purple. 

Duckett was asked why he chose 
this design. •"Platforms," he replied. 
"dale back thousands of years. Even 
the Egyptians used the platform 
concept. There is a psychological need 
for people to elevate themselves - 
that's why we admire mountains and 
tall people." He added that people 
'end to identify pleasant things with 
niountaiie. In elevated areas one can 
get away from it all. "The platform." 
said Duckett. "will isolate and remove 
'he student from the floor without 
actually being separate." 

Silkscreen-printed fabric banners 

fO D 

depicting Biblical scenes will hang 
over the platforms, and planters with 
live greenery will be included in the 
seating arrangements. 

Plans also involve installing head- 
phone jacks into the seating units with 
several music channels available for 
listening. Headphones could be 
checked out at the Student Center desk 
with an l.D. card. 

If Duckett's proposals are favor- 
able to students, construction will 
begin immediately and the projected 
completion date is to be before college 
days in April. 

Costoftheproject will be low. The 
platforms, which require only fiber 
board and structural beams, will be 
built by student labor. The SA Senate 
Subcommittee for Finance is working 
to allocate a sum toward the project, 
but the college will carry the major 
burden of the expense.

Tests do serve a purpose. They 
give you an opportunity to check your 
progress. Students who have formed 
good study habits throughout the term 
should be confident. Exams will help 
your understanding of important ideas 
and your ability to express them. 

1. The day before an exam, review 
a maximum of three hours. Question 
yourself as you review. Reread text 
passages only when you have difficulty 
remembering them. 

2. Eat and sleep well so that you 
are refreshed for the exam. 

3. Get up early to avoid rushing on 
the morning of the test. 

4. Shower, have a good breakfast, 
exercise, go for a walk.

Fisher, 21. a student at the 
University of Virginia, has written a 
cookbook aimed at dorm dwellers. Its 
title is "The International Student's 
Guide to Cooking Without Getting 
Caught." In it, she outlines handy 
methods for preparing dorm room 
cuisine with only a thermos, an iron, 
and a hot pot for boiling water. 

Fisher says it is possible to grill a 
cheese sandwich with the iron, cook 
macaroni in the thermos, and to make 
fruit crunches, bread and casseroles in 
the hot pot. 

To make grilled cheese sand-

the sandwich in foil, set the iron on

the sandwich as if it was a handker- 
chief, being careful not to squeeze the 
sandwich. For macaroni, put bodmg 
water and pasta in thermos and let it

cold weather, the inevitable seems to 
occur and snow is brought into the 
conversation. Cold weather and 
snow--a classic combination. What 
follows below is neither a discussion 
of cold weather per se, nor a blanket 
(if that is quite the correct term) 
treatise on snow. What is to be given 
is a brief examination of the effects of 

A snowflalce, taken alone, is 
a beautiful though a rather 
inconsequential thing. It is only 
when a mass of such particles 
accumulates that their presence may 
produce wonder, interest, concern, 
and often a sense of terror. Very 
Aristotelian things, snowflakes. 

Formed in the upper parts of 
turbulent clouds, the reactions 
between crystals and sub-cooled 

water cause the development 
electrical charges which are 
frequently manifested as cloud to 
cloud orcloud to ground lightning. 
By sweeping over and smashing 
against airplane wings and fuselages, 
the snow crystals cause electrification 
which may appear as St. Elmo's fire 
on leading surfaces and wing tips. 

Snow, of course, and snow packs 
in particular are useful sources of 
water storage for man. 
valleys of California, Oregon, Utah 
Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and 
parts of Spain. North Africa and 
others, which have insufficient 
precipitation to support crops are 
made fertile by irrigation from the 
nearby mountain snows. 

Snows may become so deep and 
unstable in mountainous regions that 
avalanches are formed. These are 
among the most impressive and at 
times, frightening manifestations of 
primitive nature. Snow may also 
become consolidated to form 
layers of ice which flow down a 
mountain as a river of ice, shaping 
and weathering rock formations over 
periods of time. 

One of the more popular human 
activities as a by-product of the 
effects of a large mass of snow is 
skiing. The second half of the 
Twentieth century has brought with it 
a rapid development in this sport. 
The importance of snow as a valuable 
commodity has in some areas become 
so great that economically it is 
profitable to generate artificial snow 
on cold nights.

Principles \n Interpreting Scriptur 

DGary Williams 

"Every good thing bestowed ant 
every perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father of lights, 
with whom there is no variation, or 
shifting shadow." James 1:17 (NASBJ 

This verse presents a wonderful words.

and dwelt among us that the supreme

draped in a sable tapestry, can fail to 

Going from nature to divine revela- 
tion as given in the Word, we have our 
Father's message to us. This is truly a 
perfect gift because it reveals Jesus, 

Elder Brother in such simple, dear 

Taking our cue from the manner in 
which Jesus and the apostles cite the 
Scriptures we may induct another 
basic principle for interpretation, 
namely, that Scripture is to be 
understood in its natural grammatical 
sense (unless symbolism is employed 
that would be explained in context or 
elsewhere) and in its historical setHng. 
If the Holy Spirit intended that further 
insights would be unfolded from a 
particular passage, we will find such 
uttered by later inspired writers. 

Reconstructing the historical set- 
ting of a passage as far as possible 
serves to prevent a misapplication of 

statement of reality. Our Father has 
deep, loving interest in each of His 
sons and daughters. 

We behold this interest in the 
blessings that come our way day by 
day. These gifts are the tokens of an 
■mmeasurable love which is as vast as 

The daily progression of nature 
unfolds new wonders about our Fa- 
ther. His tender care is seen in the

His Creation.

Since the Holy Scriptures were 
written in the cultural setting of the 
Near East, it is important that we do 
not read it through Western eyeglas- 
ses. We must understand what it is 
saying in its own idiom. That is why it 
must be insisted upon that the Bible be 
permitted to define its usage of terms. 
For example, the Bible's meaning of 
"eternal" is not always the same as 
our concept of the word. 

Another important principle re- 
lated to the cultural setting is this: In 
the Bible God is often said to do what

There can be no greater poverty

is the saddest condition of man.

without reservation.

the setting of Near 
Eastern culture. Time and place must 
be considered with relationship to

"Thou shalt not steal" might be

The counsel, "Put off thy shoes 
from off thy feet" (Exodus 3:5) might 
be classified as specific counsel. 
Here the principle is not so clear. 
So we must ask. Why was this 



spect to Deity is 

and all things existed because of Him. 
Hence, Bible writers at times may 
speak of God as sending evil spirits, 
hardening hearts, sending delusions 
upon men, etc. To the western mind it 
sounds as though God was the source 
of evil as well as of good. But the Bible 
writer is not blaming God, nor is he 
intending to convey the idea that God 
is the author of evil or two-faced. 

For example, "Do not lead us into 
temptation," does not mean that God 
is prone to bring about our fall into sin 
and hence, must be pled with. 
Translated over into western thought 
patterns it simply means: Do not 
permit us to be overcome by Satan's 
seductions or the wickedness of our 
own hearts. Many difficult passages 
are at once made clear to the western 
mind when this simple principle is 


reverence and respect for Deity. 
Moses was in the presence of God, and 
he was required to show proper 
reverence. In his culture this was done 
by removing the shoes, in our culiure.

Lonely Voices 


Hamilton County nursing home is 
full of ' "lonely voices' ' who because of 
old age have been neglected by 
society. But due to the wonderful 
working of the Spirit of God on this 
campus we have students adopting 
these grandparents and thus becoming 
their special "grandchildren". 

Each week a group of students gain 
a special blessing through the visita- 
tion of these "grandfathers" and 
"grandmothers" at the nursing home 

True love is not measured by how 
much we read the Bible. It is 
measured bv the way we react to an 

opportunity for expressing it to others. 
Surely the opportunity at Hamilton 
County Nursing Home is one for which 
many of the students at SMC could 
profit spiritually from by sharing and 
in return receiving love. 

If the Lord inspires you to take part 
in this type of work for him then meet

be kept, and sometimes promises never intended for fulfillment. People

and the real motive may destroy a persons trust

proper representation in their government. Should we continue to accept a 
machine, a body of bureaucracy whose main purpose thus far has been a mere 
form of student government? It is the opinion of this citizen that we do 
something with this constitution, or abolish the. puppet body -- giving an 
apology for the enormous waste of our time, and a rebate of dollars for the 
money we have invested! 

My vision is to have a student government that is functional, practical, and 
above all necessary. We must not have a division among us! Abraham 
Lincoln once said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand." i believe 
this student government cannot endure half religious zealots and half secular 
zealots. We must strive for unity. We must uphold the standards of 
Christianity and develop a philosophy that will not destroy our human 
relations with our fellow students. Christ allowed for freedom of opinion, and 
I believe that as His followers we should allow the same. Let's not endeavor 
to compartmentalize a physical, mental, or spiritual man for we are all onel 
Let's band together and do something meaningful with the power granted to 
us. or nullify our organization. 

Let us have faith that makes might, and in that faith let i 
our duty as we understand it. 

My platform is to have a united student body, adults who will govern 
themselves in a responsible way and show compassion and understanding for 

With honesty and truthfuUness,

Follow me, and I mil make you flsH, 



The Student Association is a sleeping giant -- it has power and what is 
done with that power concerns you. With a financial budget of mote than 
S60.000, 1800 students, and officers staff, and committee members reaching 
into the hundreds in numbers, your SA is no small piece of machinery. And it 
can work for youl As you read my platform, I would like you to keep in mind 
that perhaps your SA can offer you more than you've been getting, 
i. Objectives 

A. To increase communication between SA Leadership and SA General 
Assembly. If they're working for you. you should know it. 

B. Insist that each branch of the SA (including the Executive) is aware of 
the "Pulse beat" of the students. What are their needs? There is no use 
offering services you don't need or are not interested in. 

C. Provide a set of working policies for the recently rewritten Constitution 
(see Sec. II, C below) 

D. Carefully outline objectives, goals, and job descriptions of each office. 

E. Make cuts in unnecessary budgeting for an increase of student 

F. Exercise leadership responsibilities so that each office functions in 
unity and delivers its designated services. (Joker -- example) 

II. Means Of Meeting Objectives 

The following list just exemplify rather than being a comprehensive 
discussion for brevity's sake. 

A. Knowing Your SA 

Through carefully planned General Assembly ineetings. "press 
conferences' ' , publication Accent, upcoming campus radio, increased P,R. 

B. Knowing Your Needs 
By poles, senator visitation programs, surveys, questi 

utilizing Chapel Card Computer Services and other means, make sure we 
know your needs and that we are offering the services you want. 

Perhaps a student pole should reveal that you didn't feel the Southern 
Memories (Annual) warrented over "A of the SA budget and you would rather 
see a nicer Joker and and an ice skating rink built (or whatever), it would at 
least be what you wanted not what we simply assumed you wanted! 

C. Working Policies 

We have a Constitution that took untold hours to draft. A Constitution 
with high goals and id^al. yet broad, objectives to reach. But until there is 
outlined step by step procedures and amplifying their goals so they can be 
nailded down, the Constitution is unfunctional. This would be one of my first 
goals, to provide a set of working policies. 

D. Job Descriptions 

As an executive officer under the present administrations, I have 
shared in the frustration of being asked to fulfill a "title" with no job 
description of what that title entailed. Time is lost figuring out what should be 
done. I had to take it and run it like it was but time was lost. Each one of my 
officers will know his job and then he can figure out how to get it done 

E. Budget Reform 

An example of this would be the SI .350.00 budget allocated for SA 
Vespers this year. The norm has been (o fly in people from all over at a great 
expense for the service they offer. When I took office last spring as Director 
of Campus Ministries, I determined to cut such unnecessary expenses. By 
using local talent, as well as careful planning ahead of time, we had Elder Jan 
Dowerd and soon Robert H. Pierson as guest speakers yet with no expense to 
the Vespers budget. Thus, at three fourths through the year, we still have 
Sl.026.24 in the Budget. 

F. Fulfiliing Leadership Responsibilities 

By constantly keeping informed and being aware of each office's 
progress, through regular committee meetings, and personal contact. I will be 
able to make sure the services my staff are allotted to deliver you receive. 
Perhaps a similiar procedure might have saved some of the time lost, and 
embarrassment, regarding the delay of our Joker this year. There is no excuse 
of the Joker being in your hands less than a matter of days after Registration. 
III. Qualijications 

A. Past Leadership Roles 

1. Director of Campus Ministries 76-77 

a. Director and founder of Christian Growth Seminars 

b. Sabbath Afternoon Activities executive 
1 2. HOPE Magazine founder and editor 75-76 

3. Assistant Pastor Capital Memorial Church, Washington D.C. 

4. Assistant Youth Pastor Stan Tower SDA Church, Portland. Oregon 

5. Assistant Youth Director Lents SDA Church 

6. Class Senator Milo Academy 

7. Treasurer of academy SA 

8. Religious Vice President of Boys Club Milo Academy 

B. II Cor. 12. tells us that administration is a gift of "that one and the 
selfsame Spirit" "to profit with all.'.' It is my desire to be so connected with 
that Spirit (as well as to promote this among my stafO that He can lead, 
bestowing His Wisdom to make the SA the greatest benefit to you. 

The SA has come a long ways, yet I believe it has only just begun; I 
appreciate your support in helping me make this a reality.

Randall Jacobsen is right in considering Polaroid photos for The Joker.

with both of those committees to give you the best possible program 

3. The student association offices are to be the basic lines of 
communication between the students and the faculty. These lines must 
remain clear and unobstructed. Having worked this year with the SA 
sponsors. Elder Davis and Mr. Merchant, as a senator, I feel that 1 can wotfc 
well with both of them and through them with the rest of the faculty. 

Having served this year as a representative on the student senate, I fee] 
that I understand the organization and requirements of the office that I a 
seeking. Realizing that the office of vice-president takes with it man! 
responsibilities which are time consuming, I plan to take a very light load nert

Hebrews 10:17 (KJV) 


The Southern Accent for 1976-77 has been a definite step forward in the 
areas of content, style, layout, and production in contrast to recent years 
Moreover, the paper has conformed much more closely to the standards set 
forth by the Seventh-day Adventist Church than it has in years past. 

If elected editor of The Southern Accent, I would strive to maintain these 
advancements and to improve on them where possible. Some of these 
improvements would include: 

1 . Reducing the publication of the Accent to bi-weekly, stressing quality 
rather than quantity. The number of pages would increase per issue, more 
time could be given to improving the content and design, and innovative ideas 
such as the use of2 or 3 colors could be tried; 

2. Improving the quality of the photographs in each issue. 
This year's Accent has used an inferior process for screening negatives which 
would be corrected In next year's paper; 

3. Continuing the emphasis on producing a professional, high-quality 
lewspaper. The design and layout would be of a modem yet conservative 
ityle. Improvements will be made by using fresh copy each issue and by 
ncorporating more efficient production techniques; 

4. More direct supervision of the printing process at the Quality Shopper, 
was layout editor for the Shopper for 7 years and am familiar with this phase 

of production; 

Upon further consultation, we would organize a subscription campaign 
wherein each student would have the opportunity to obtain or solicit 
subscriptions from parents, relatives, friends, etc. Incentive awards would be 
ven for those with outstanding numbers of subscription solicited. As an 
ample: Collegedale Academy's Fall subscription campaign for The 
Echolier netted 2,500 subscriptions at $2.00 each (for 8 issues) for a total of 
$5,000. CA is a day school with an enrollment of only 300 students. I believe 
the potential at SMC is much greater, and that a subscription campaign of this 
magnitude could bring in a substantial income as well as bringing the Accent 
before the students in a forceful way. 

My previous experience in newspaper editing and work has been: 

1 . This Week newspaper

Publishing a yearbook means to put on pages what the College is all about. 
It means presenting the faculty and the student body before thousands of 
people. A yearbook is more than a photo album. It is not a collection of 
landscapes or a fashion show. It is not a competition of color contrast, but an 
aesthetic selection of colors. A yearbook is not simple fun, but it is a message, 
it's life, it's you and me. A yearbook is all that you can tell about an 
institution, but without using too much words. In our case, as a christian 
Institution, there is a main purpose, and that is to tell the world that there is a 
group of people living in this valley which profess to be different and to have a 
special way of life. 

A yearbook is all that and more than that. 

I propose to the student body and to the faculty a different concept of 
vearbook. I'm not talking about computers or about strange people (of 
coursel) I'm talking about photos and words but with a different message. In 
fact, I believe that the success of a yearbook depends on the message that you 
can fmd throughout all its pages, 

I propose two concepts: fullness and mvolvement. Fullness means a lull 
representation of the College, and eiposilion of all the fun, but also all the 
sacred And all the special things that we enjoy on this campus. The most 
important element has to be you, the student body. 

The faculty has to be another important element within this concept ot 
fullness Thev are as important as we are. 1 would suggest a change here, 
raUier than individuals I would present families. This also includes married 
students. We live separately, but we can't forget that we are '^'•"•'y- 

Involvement, the second concept, means participation, I believe that one 
of the most important elements on this campus is the participation of the 
students in different activities: sports, religious activities, arts, and music. 
All of them must be represented because they are part of the College. 

T^ese two concepts are principles which involve many other areas, and m 
order to fulfill these ideals I will need only three things: 

1) your prayer, 

2) your participation, and 

3) your vote ^ ^^^ Cumbres editor (newspaper), Flamboyan

1 realize that I can't change the entire social structure of Southern 
Missionary Coliegc. but 1 really disagree with the way things are set up 
sociajly at present. 1 feci we need a structure that is more relaxed and 
requires large group participation instead of a date oriented structure. 

If elected. 1 propose to plan activities that will b,e of interest to the widest 
margin of students possible. 1 feel that we need to plan activities that include 
many students, not just those who are dating. There are so many students 
here who are lonely and isolated, lots of them graduate without having 
participated in more than five or six activities. They leave after having spent 
tour glorious years holed up in their rooms. 1 realize that it is the individual 
students' prerogative to involve himself in student affairs but most of the 
student activities are so date oriented that if a student (for one reason or 
another) does not have a date he feels left out and disoriented if he does take 
part in said activity. 

Some of my ideas tor next year include a school picnic (you know like vou 
used 10 have in academy/high school) and at least one. if not two laree eroun 
activities each month (ie. corn roasts, midnight hikes, etc,) Of course it'd he 
all right if one did ehoose to bring a date, but at least the person(s) who didn't 
have dates wouldn't feel out of place. As a Christian 1 feel that our eXe 
lives arc God's, not just fragments of them. I'd like lo plan activities that 
include God, that are really God centred. I'm really tired of li«tpni„„ ,

appointed by the director with both directly responsible to the SA

activities of the Bonny Oaks and First Offenders programs presently under the 
administration of the Campus Evangelism director. The reason suggested by 
the senate for proposing to change jurisdiction from Campus Evangelism 
director to the Vice-president for these activities was to bring these into 
harmony with the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's ruling 
on Work Study funds which are currently being used by these community 
oriented projects. THE HEW states that Work Study funds shall not be used 
Tiploy students in religiously oriented programs. This organizational r

area of residence would be entitled to one elected Senator for every full four 
percentage points of total student population residing therein. An area of 
residence having less than a full four percentage points of total student 
population would be entitled to one elected Senator. While the number of 
Senators would remain stable, they would be distributed among the areas of 
residence on the basis of area population.

into some rough going losing two out

of these games at least one of their 
starters was missing. In their fourth 
game of the season Vissor again was 
missing starter (and Brother) Claud. 

But they were net to be stopped on 
this night. Bruce Wolpin cleared the 
boards and Steve White brought the 
house down with his circus shots. 
Vissor coasted to an easy 20 point 
victory for his first win and Barts first 

Then Barts beat Rouse in a close 
ball game--79 to 75. This set up one of 

the most exciting games of the season 
when Barts played Evans. 

Barts team had lost Dannis Wood 
who had dropped his classes. This no 
doubt hurt Barts as Wood had been 
pumping in close to 20 points per

situation as the half ended even. Barts 
played again in the second half, but 
the score ended in a tie. Barts jumped 
off to a quick lead in the overtime, out

Halversen and Rouse have played 
almost identical ball so far. Both 
teams have been involved in very close

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to comment a few words on our recent SASMC eleaions 
First during the question and answer session in place of Tuesday night 
worship. 1 was disappointed in the line of questioning being directed to Don 
Ashlock, presidential candidate. Part of his platform called for budeet 
reform, and he was questioned in regard to whether his past actions 
demonstrate his true desire for budget reform. While I admit the past actions 
of individuals are an indication of their future course of action, I feit that his 
questioners should not have dwelt so much on his past decisions. The 
ultimate question is. "How does he plan to reform next years budget?" 
No one asked him this question and he didn't address himself to it. One 
wonders if it is possible for the SA to undergo budget reform. After 50% of 
the budget is spent on SA publications, and then there is Saturday night 
entertainment, the religious activities allotment, the student missions, and 
stipends for all the officers, there isn't much left over to reform. 

Now, ifone can save 51,000.00 on such things as Friday night MV, what is 
going to be done with the money saved? Undoubtedly there will be new 
projects, and new spending, to eat up all the money saved. After all. have you 
ever seen your SA give a rebate back to the students when there are extra 
funds at the end of the year? 

Perhaps the candidates will consider the need to wisely administer the 
funds of the students they serve. But even more, perhaps ihey will look for 
ways of serving their SA by doing more than just deciding on how to spend the 
budget 1! 

A second point that interested me was the number of candidates who 
planned (or said they were) on using polls next year to determine what the 
students want or like. Well, one wonders why these candidates are running 
this year, if they so obviously don't know the needs and moods of the 
students. If they can't propose anything now to serve the students, perhaps it 
is a definite indication of their lack of leadership qualities. 

Last. I would like to suggest that each student vote for who they feel best 
qualified regardless of what an editorial says. Don't with-hold your vote for a 
candidate, (even though you were going to vote for him J just because you 
don't like the idea of an editorial endorsing him. Also, vote for a candidate 
you feel qualified, even if the editorial didn't back him. You might know 
something the paper didn't. 

All-in-all we've had a good election turn-out, and a fine school spirit.

Dear Editor: 

I support the Accent's right to 
endorse political candidates. It's 
about time the Accent had the courage 
to risk hurting someone's feelings in 
its task to get the facts before the 
general student public. 

If candidates can't accept criticism 
during a campaign it's partially 
indicative of the kind of leaders they 
would make if elected. 

I do not feel the Accent's action 
was "irresponsible" in that a state- 
ment was included in the editorial 
asking voters to use their own judge- 
Most people realize that journalism 
is inherrently subjective, no matter 
how hard the writer may strive for 
objectivity; it's not likely that very 
many votes were decided on the basis 
of the Accent's endorsement alone.

Hiccups Cured Forever 

DVanessa Greenleaf 

Have you ever opened your mouth 
I'he ie^S It's mortifying, to say 

A hiccup involves three main parts 
of the body: the glottis, the two 
phrenic nerves which run from the top 
of the spinal cord down into the 
diaphragm with tiny, thread-like pro- 
jections, and the diaphgram. Usually, 
when signaling the diaphragm to

surrected! For those who can't 
remember, "Knittel's Komer" began 
last September as a weekly link 
between the students and SMC's 
President. Dr. Frank Knittel. Unfor- 
tunately, it lived a short life -■ one 
week to be exact. Now, it exists once 

and needs your participation. 
Drop any question you would want to 
ask Dr. Knittel in a Southern Accent 
mailbox or in my mailbox, #280 Talge 
Hall. He'll answer it through this 
n. Just about any subject is 
suitable, but please, no questions 
pertaining to individual personalities. 
begin the column, 1 asked Dr. 
Knittel several questions of my own. 
The first question dealt with the 
weather and SMC in the near future. 
He presently foresees no more com- 
'turn offs" at SMC due to the 
weather. However, if there were 
critical fuel shortages again, water 
heaters in Talge Hall and cafeteria gas 
equipment would probably be turned 
off again. 

1 also queried Dr. Knittel concer- 
ning the sculpture donated last year by 
a leading Mexican sculptor, Arctor M. 
Conreras. He stated that the sculpture 
was only a preliminary model then, 
and that now it is almost finished. He 
hopes it will be erected here before 
commencement this year. Depicted in 
gold and silver bronze are praying 
hands holding a heart dripping with 
blood. The statue is 27.8 feet high 
from its base, and will stand in the 
front of the campus as one drives in, 
before the first hedge. 

Dr. Knittel stressed that all money 
involved has been donated, and sug- 
gested that those interested could 
examine the same artist's work in the

County Justice Building in Chatta-

do not act together in harmony, the

Juanita wobbled out, hiccuping more

suggestion, she had one of her phrenic 
nerves crushed by surgery.

Some extraordinary cases and 
cures of hiccups have been docu- 

Perhaps the most well-known is 
Pope Puis Xn's experience. In 
January of 1954, he had an attack of 
gastritis accompanied by a severe case 
of the hiccups. After a few days, the 
hiccups finally left him, but only to 
return a few months later with another 
attack of gastritis. This proved to be 
too much for the Pope, who died 
shortly thereafter. 

In 1948, Jack O'Leary, a young lad 
preparing for priesthood, suffered a 
ruptured appendix. While recovering 
from surgery, he got the hiccups. His 
doctor assured him that this was 
nothing unusual and that they would 
go away eventually. Jack's "even 
tually" finally came eight years later 
after hiccuping approximately 160 
million times. One journalist affec- 
tionally nick-named him the "Mara- 
thon Hiccuper." 

Not able to keep anything down for 
more than ten minutes after intake, his 
weight had dropped from 138 pounds 
to 74 pounds. His limited, and rather 

tasteless diet consisted of mashed 
carrots and peas and a special kind of 
tea with dried toast, During this 
exhausting period, he received 60,000 
sympathetic, unsuccessful suggestions 
for a good riddance of the hiccups. 
Jack claims that the successful remedy 
was a prayer to Saint Jude. the 
profaned saint of lost causes. 

A jobless waitress, Judy Mc- 
Donald, hiccuped for two years, 
averaging 90 hiccups per minute. 
During that wearisome time, she tried 
2,000 unsuccessful suggestions which 
included being drugged, hypnotized, 
and eating peanut butter. Lucy said 
she would rather lose weight by a 
method other than hiccups, but she 
lost 40 pounds anyway. Unable to 
endure the irritating strain any longer, 
she had surgery which crushed her 
right phrenic nerve. By doing this, 
Lucy lost approximately 25% of her 
breathing capacity, but her hiccups 
were terminated. 

Sixty-nine-year-old Theadore 

Syvertson experienced a similar situa- 
tion. After two years and visiting 
several doctors, he tried a suggestion 
received in the mail: "Bend at the 
waist and drink water from opposite 
side of glass." Halfway through his 
second glass, Theadore's hiccups

Emily Dickinson, generally recognized 
by critics as the greatest woman poet 
of her own. or perhaps any age. 

Based on Dickinson's letters and 
poems and arranged as a work for a 
solo performer, The Belle of Amherst 
gives actress Harris an opportunity to 
present a virtuoso performance. Miss 
Harris, who originated the role on 
Broadway, is currently touring the 
country presenting Emily Dickinson, 
the poetess, as intellectual, emotional, 
warm and, above all, human. 

Miss Harris lightly runs on-stage 
into a Victorian sitting room and 
bedroom. With her words, "Welcome 
to Amherst." the audience is aware 
that it will participate as part of the 
cast. The viewers of the play are guest 
of Emily Dickinson, who attempts to 
put them at ease (and one suspects 
that her efforts are also self-directed.). 
She then proceeds in a conversational 
manner to present her views of poetry, 
life, death, God, and immortality. 

Known in her day as a recluse, 
"The Amherst Nun," Miss Dickinson, 
presents her own view of the matter. 
She declares that her brother, Austin, 
sees through her self-imposed exile. 
But then, he understands her as no 
one else does. Isolation is necessary in 
the poet's view in order to obtain the 
time for reflection on the subjects of 
her poems and in the long and 
technically exhausting composition 
process. In essence, she agrees with 
Wordsworth that poetry is, "... the 
spontaneous overflow of powerful 
feelings: it takes its origin from 
emotion recollected in tranquillity." 
But not quite the somber theorist that 
Wordsworth was, Julie Harris' Dick- 
inson states with twinkle in evi

Belle of Amherst requires that an 
actress run the full gamut of feeling 
and emotional expression. Emily 
Dickinson's poetic writings appear to 
have been her mode of self-expres-

is intact throughout the play. "I

What Is Righteousness 
By Faith? 

From the Religion Dept... ^ 

Principles In Interpreting Scripture 

Part 3 

dividual life, 
igh — a living 

In recent months there has been a 
I healthy revival in studying righteous- 
I ness by faith in the Seventh-dayi 
JAdventist Church. This is good. 
I Every worker and member in the 
I church should not only understand this 
mportant topic as the prime doctrine 
f of the church but also 
experience in the i 
■ Doctrine is not em 
experience it must be. 

The Seventh-day Adventist Encyc- 
lopedia sets forth the Adventist 
position on this topic very succinctly. 
Under the heading "Righteousness by 
Faith" we read: 

"In SDA terminology, the instan- 
taneous experience of conversion 
through faith in Christ, often spoken of 
as 'justification by faith', and the 
lifelong experience of Christian living, 
also through faith in Christ. 

"We dare not 
minimize either 
justification or 

"SDA's believe that the new birth, 
important as it is, is only the beginning 
of a lifelong experience of growing up 
into Christ, of conforming one's life. 
point by point, to the perfect example 
set for the Christian in the life of 
Christ. The SDA emphasis is on the 
fact that the same Christ who saves a 
man through his exercise of faith will 
also enable him to develop a Christian 
character, likewise through faith; that 
righteousness by faith in Christ is a 
continuing process. SDA teaching 
clearly recognizes and stresses that 
the ability to live a Christian life 
from God, not from man's own works 
or from compliance even with God's 
moral law." —Page 1085. 

From these words it is clear that 
the Seventh-day Adventist Church 
accepts the two phases or steps in the 
experience of righteousness by faith. 
One is the "instantaneous experi- 
ence," known as justification, when in 
a moment the imputed righteousness 
of Jesus provides the repentant sinner 
a standing before God as though he 
had never sinned, and the resultant 
peace and joy in Christ that provide 
the greatest possible motive and 
yearning to be like Him. 

The second phase is a "lifelong 
nperience of Christian living," *hen 
"loment by moment the imparted 
righteousness of Jesus provides grace 
3nd strength through the gracious 
ininistry of the Holy Spirit for the 
straggling saint to overcome sin and 
hecome more and more like his divine 

. We dare not minimize either 
justification or sanctification. Both are 
f the utmost import to the Christian 
'ife and experience. As Ellen White 
Jeclares, "The first is our title to 
f^aven. the second is our fitness for 
-Messages to Young People 

page 35. 

In both the justification and the 
sanctification experiences it must be 
all of Christ and none of self. ' 'We are 
dependent on Christ first, for justifica- 
tion from our past offenses, and, more 
secondly, for grace whereby to render peopl 
acceptable obediance to His holy law came 
in time to come."~Signs of the 
Times. June 4, 1874 

"Although we are justified by the 
merits of the blood of Christ and 
through the instrument of faith, it is 
also true that works of loving 
obediance are the evidence of saving 
faith," a group of concerned leaders 
stated in 1976. "In the last judgement ning it 
our works of faith and love testify to BecauE 
the reality of justifying faith and our 
union with Christ; we are still saved by 
justification through Christ withouth 
any works of law, that is, without

L.E..Froom sums it up nicely in 
Movement of Destiny: "Righteous- 
ness by Faith is not a mere segment or 
aspect of the Faith. It is the Faith in its 
entirety— the full faith of Jesus. 
Ponder its scope. It takes in the entire 
sweep of salvation. It constitutes the 
heart of redeeming grace, the essence 
of the Everiasting Gospel. ...It is the

Ethical considerations in the Scrip- 
tures can also be perplexing until we 
grasp the interpretative principle that 
God does not necessarily endorse all 
that He permits. We see deep-seated 
social practices among God's people 
such as drinking, divorce, polygamy, 
and slavery, apparently without any 
Divine condemnation,

the strengths of God's followers. But

of slavery during which their 

knowledge of God and His ways was 

nearly obliterated. They were not able 

to face a full revelation of His will. 

Jesus enunciated the principle for 
us. Divorce, for example, was 
permitted "because of the hardness of 
[theirl hearts," but "from the begin- 
3." (Matthew 19:1-9).

some things have been permitted in 
the past because of the blindness of 
the human heart, they are not— and 
never were— theDivine ideal.

THIS .. 

Haggai the prophet reprimanded 
his people for allowing the House of 
God to lie waste because of lack of 
funds and was inspired by the Lord to 
record this statement concerning 
them; "he that earneth wages eameth

But does that same principle not 
apply to us in our spiritual stewardship 
as well as in our financial stewardship? 

The author of Hebrews tells us that 
"we ought to give the more earnest 
heed to the things which we have 
heard, lest at any time we should let 
them slip."(Hebrews 2:1) 

The riches of knowing Jesus as our 
personal Saviour can slip from us if we 
do not share them with others. Thank 
Jesus that, when we drink of the water 
*hich he gives.we shall never thirst for 
the water that He shall give. It will be 
in us * 'a well of water springing up into 
everlasting life." (John4:]4). 

Let's make an earnest effort to let 
the light from Jesus reflect from us to

DMichael Roland 

You've probably noticed by now 
the prayer request boxes located in 
Talge. Thatcher, and Student Center 
lobbies. These boxes were inspired by 
the text found in James 5:16 — "and 
pray one for another." 

The purpose in putting up these 
prayer request boxes is to give 
students the opportunity to "solicit 
prayer for the souls for whom you 
labor; present them before the church 
as subjects for their supplication. It 
will be just what the members of the 
church need to have their minds called 
from their petty difficulties, to feel a 
great burden, a personal interest, for a 
soul that is ready to perish. Select 
another and still another soul, daily 
seeking guidance from God, laying 
everything before Hini in earnest 
prayer, working with divine wisdom. 
As you do this. God will give you the 

e of the three prayer boxes located on campus. 
(phoro by Gary Moore)

Holy Spirit to convict and convert ,1,

Now, the students have the „„ 
portunity to follow this counsel h 
using the prayer request boxes Tk 
goal of the Prayer Ministry is to 
limit God. "'"

They are divided up among the

All requests are kept confidential 
within the group. If there is any 
request to go to the Chaplain alone b. 
folding the paper and writing "i

might be easily seen, they will be 
given directly to the Chaplain. 

Prayer request boxes are also 
scheduled to be placed in Jones Hall

The Origin Of All Heart Day 

DGary Williams 

The season of hearts and 
has just passed. What is Valentine's 
Day. and where did it come from? 

Many believe it is named for Saint 
Valentine. History tells us that there 
were two saints by that name -- one 
was a Roman priest, and the other was 
Bishop of Temi; both suffered martyr- 
dom in the 270's. 

There doesn't seem to be a 
connection between the person and the 
event. Valentine's Day has a connec- 
tion with the religions of Rome. 

The Romans had an ancient festival 
called Lupercalia which came on 
February 15. This festival honored 
Pan. the nature's god and Juno, 
goddess of women and marriage. 

The name itself is derived from a 
place- Lupercal. Lupercal was a cave in 
Palatine Hill where goats were sac- 
rificed; the ritual of purification de- 
manded a sacrificial dog. 

Cupid also has a place in all of this, 
dipped in the mystical 

prince danced across the pictoiical 
screen of her mind. 

Gifts were the usual exchange 
between lovers. When cards came 
along, the gifts tended to decrease. 

Valentine's Day is neither moral 
nor immoral, It all depends on the 
people involved in it. 

As Seventh-day Adventists we 
should have the highest conception of 
true love than anyone else on earth. 
Love is a beautifUl, wonderful reality 
opened to each of us. 

How tragic it is that it tends to be 
confused with nonsense and mystical 
properties that no one can knowl Love 
is as natural as spring flowers in a 
meadow of green spires reaching to 
the sun. 

Love is a constant growth toward 
God. Human love can only have 
meaning if it has its center in divine

potion of love, melted the hearts of 
.those which became his targets. 

Meanwhile back at the church. 
Pope Gelasius in 496 brought into 
existence Valentine's Day on the 14th. 
To view church history is to view the 
essence of compromise with pagan 

Down through the years, many 
additional customs and practices have 
been added to the day. Since love is 
the center of this, it would be well to 
view two of these customs. 

Women used to take bits of paper 
and write the names of those who 
could be suitable mates. They would 
place these in clay and drop them in 
the water; the first piece of clay to rise 
to the surface was the winner. 

Five bay leaves were taken and 
placed on a pUlow-one at each edge

A Psalm Of Righteousness 

DAndy Osinki 

The Lord is my rightei 

I shall not be found wanting. 

He leadeth me to kneel down at 
the foot of the cross: he revealeth 
to me the paths of his denial. 

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me 

on in the upward way for his name's sake. 

Yea, though I walk down the path of sanctifi cation. 
I will fear no evil; for thou art my righteousness; 
thy life and thy death they have brought me salvation. 

Thou has prepared a table for me before 

the foundations of the world: thou hast cleansed me 

with thy blood; my iniquities have been forgiven. 

Surely I shall see thee soon in thine honor 
and glory: and I will dwell in thy love forever.

Celedomo Celin Pepe and 

Romero Guitarists To Perform 

The Romero guitar quartet will be 
in concert March 12 at 8 p.m. in the 
SMC gymnasium. 

This event will mark the first 
appearance of four great Spanish 
artists who have come to be known on 
the international concert scene as The 
Royal Family of the Guitar. They are 
Celedonio Romero and his three sons, 
Celin. Pepe, and Angel. They left 
their native Spain in 1958 to settle in 
the United States. Soon they 


' seasons they have enjoyed sold-out 
^ast-to-coast tours, and in the 1969-73 
asons, they toured Europe. 
The Romeros began the 74-75 

season at the Montalvo Music Festival 
in California and at the new FJlene 
Center of the Wolf Trap Foundation 
near Washington, D.C. 

Because the guitar is today the 
most popular instrument with young 
people, this season the Romeros will 
perform at Stanford, Yale, the Univer- 
sity of Wisconsin, Arizona State, 
Pacific Union College. Loma Linda 
University, and the University of 
California. They have also planned 
concerts at the National Arts Center in 
Ottawa and the Cloisters Museum of 
the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 
New York, 

The Board of Trustees at its annual 
meetmg in February indicated that 
senous consideration would be given 
to a name change for Southern 
Missionary College. 

The possible vote for the name 
change will come up before the Board 
at the April meeting. At that time, 
various suggestions will be heard from 
the constituency, faculty, alumni, and 

Over the past ten years polls have 
been taken about a name change, and 
the consensus seems to be that 
"Southern Adventist College" would 
be the most popular choice. 

Recently, the General Conference 
suggested to its hospitals and educa- 
tional institutions that the word "Ad- 
ventist" be included in the name if 
such is feasible and advantageous. 
Several hospitals have already made 
this change; e.g., Glendale Adventist 
Hospital, Washington Adventist Hos- 

The thought behind ihe suggestion 
from the General Conference is that 
the name would be a strong advertise- 
ment for the church as well as the 
institution. Also, experience overseas 
has indicated in the past 10 to 20 years 
that the word "missionary" gives the

some foreign countries where the 
church might wish to send mission-

the part of foreign ofTiciais.

much of a problem since in most cases 
they do not have this designation. 

Southern Missionary College wants 
to preserve the religious flavor of its 
name, yet it wants to comply with the 
suggestion of the General Conference, 
not wanting to prejudice foreign 

Southern Missionary College. There- 
fore, serious consideration will be 
given to naming the school. "Southern 
Adventist College." 

Ornithology Class To Go On Field Trip 

The Ornithology class will begin its 
annual trek to Florida on Wednesday 
morning. March 2. The class consists 
of 25 students and a lab assistant, 
Roger Woodruff. It. under the 
direction of E.O. Grundset will study 
the varied bird-life that exists in the 

The Florida penninsula. according 
to Grundset. probably contains a more 
varied series of habitats and life zones 
than any other comparable area. 
Corresponding with these changes in 
habitat there is a change in the 
bird-life as well. 

The class will travel in two vans, 
and will eat and sleep in numerous 
places. Students will visit the Cape 
Canaveral area (where wintering shore 

birds are in abundance). Loxahatchee 
^^ildlife Refuge (kites, and other 
marsh birds inhabit there). Everglades 

National Park (which houses all 
manners of shore birds, includmg 
exotic ones such as the Roseate 
Spoonbill, Black Skimmer, Bald Eagle, 
egret and ibises). Alligator Alley and 
Corkscrew Swamp Nature Sanctuary 
(wherein are Wood Storks and early 
warbler migrants, owls, and herons), 
plus several rookeries, bird islands, 
and nesting sites. Included on the 
itinerary will be a visit to Grey nod s 
Park in northeast Miami where the 
South American Scariet Ibis was 
introduced ten years ago. 

Grundset mentioned that the class 
will also be on the look-out for the

r The Collegedale Tri-Community 
Fire Department was called to assist 
with two major fires a week from 

Pat Blanke called the Fire Depart- 
ment at 1:00 p.m. to inform them of a 
fire at the Collegedale Laundry. 
Within five minutes two fire engines 
were on the scene. 

According to Eddie Avent, Board 
Chairman of the Fire Department, 
damage was estimated at SSOO. Avant 
stated that one of the large fabric belts

press sheets and pillowcases caught on 

Avent said the fire could have been

electrical short, or ignition of lint and

An amicus curiae ("friend of the 
court") brief has been filed with the 
US Supreme Court in the case of Trans 
World Airlines et al. versus Hardison. 
The brief was filed by the Seventh-day 
Adventist Church. 

' 'This could be the most significant 
case to Adventists since the Supreme 
Court ruled on Sunday-closmg laws in 
1961," said Warren L. Johns, attorney 
for the Church's General Conference 
and a co-author of the brief. TWA v. 
Hardison involves a member of the 
Word Wide Church of God, who 
members (like Adventists) observe a 
seventh-day Sabbath from Friday sun- 
down to Saturday sundown. 

Larry Hardison, the respondent, 
was employed by TWA at its overhaul 
base in Kansas City, Missouri. He 
was fired after refusing to work on 
Friday nights or Saturdays. 

Hardison brought soit against 
TWA and several units of the Interna- 
tional Association of Machinists and 
Aerospace Workers union in federal 
district court, which ruled against him. 

An appeals court ruled in his favor, 
and the Supreme Court is expected to 
decide the issue later this spring. 

According to Johns, a crucial 
decision in the TWA case is whether 
Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, 
which prohibits religious discrimina- 
tion, could be construed as an "esta- 
blishment of religion" (which is prohi- 
bited by the First Amendment to the 
Constitution). If the high court says 
the "establishment" rule is violated, 
there could be a radical impact on the 
"free exercise" of religious rights in 
the United States, said Johns. 

A similar case last year, Cummins 
versus Parker Seal Company. , resulted 
in a 4-4 split by the Supreme Court. 
Paul Cummins, another World Wide 
church member dismissed from his job 
because he could not work con- 
scientiously on Sabbath, was upheld 
and reinstated to his old position by 
the high court tie. Justice John Paul 
Stevens absented himself from that 
decision; observers expect a more 
definitive ruling in the current case. 

SMC programs for adding en- 
dorsement grades 1-9 to a grades 
7-12 certificate and for adding en- 
dorsement grades 7-12 to a grades 
1-9 certificate have been approved 
by the State of Tennessee Depart- 
ment of Education. 

Dr. K.M. Kennedy, chairman of

Letters to the Editor 

near Editor: 

1 ihink your endorsement of speci- 
fic candidates for the' different SA 
offices was very unfair to the other 
candidates. The Southern Accent 
happens to be the only school paper, 
which gives it a lot of influence with 
Ihe student body. You should have 
just presented the nominees' plat-

biased opinions. -Very Unfair! 

Linda Henderson 

Dear Editor. 

After having once again seen 
reference made ot the "Praying 
Hands" sculpture in the Accent, and 
realizing that it might soon be a reality 
on campus, I must voice my thoughts, 
which, since first hearing about the 

my college education has not vet 
■■refined" me to the subtleties, and 
intricacies of aesthetic philosophies, 
and 1 wonder, how many of those who 
pass by really will be able to grasp the 
significance of this sculpture without 
first wondering what the difference is 
between it and a sculpture of the 
crucifixion in a Catholic or any other 


aesthetic beauty of this campus" with 
a collosa! statue to be erected at the 
entrance of the school, have varied 
from confusion to indignation. 

I have been in many SDA churches, 
all across Canada, in this area, and in 
neighboring states. Without fail, I 
have been impressed with the simpli- 
city of design and decor. 1 believe this 
to be so because as Christians we want 
to make a statement to the world. It is 
the life of the individual that is the 
witness, that represents the life of 
Christ to others.

passer-by in the form of a 25 foot tall, 
shii)>. silver/gold statement? Perhaps 

I believe the people of this campus 
are the statement of what this schooPs 
philosophy is. I believe the atmos- 
phere of these grounds is a witness. 
Can there not be enough aesthetic 
beauty found in the many and varied 
beautiful blossoming trees, shrubs 
and flowers? What can surpass the 
gracious songs of our feathered 
friends? As a people, I believe we 
don't need statues or sculptures to 
represent our message, and person- 
ally, I don't want it.

Dear Editor: 

We would like to express our 
feelings concerning the statue that will 
be erected on our campus; the statue 
of two hands holding a heart dripping 
with bloodl What message will this 
statue convey to everyone who sees it. 
especially visitors to our campus? Just 
because someone offers us a statue, do 
we have to accept it? Perhaps our 
college should be renamed Bleeding

Rees Basketball Games 
Change Status 

CJack Kovalski 

What is the best way to climax the 
fiasket ball season here on campus? 
flave the Rees series scheduled for the 
Esi weekend of the season! This is 
Ixactly what is going to be done, and 
Ihis coming weekend on February 26 
jnd 27. you will have the pleasure of 
seeing this series take place. 

To go back to the beginning, the 
Rees series was named after the late 
Conrad Rees, President of Southern 
Missionary College during the years 
'58 to '67- President Rees, a sports 
enthusiast, fell victim of a stroke, 
forcing him to leave his position as 
president, and it was at this time that 
the series was named after him. 

The Rees series staned first as a 
playoff between village and dorm 
students. It was a three game series 
starting Thursday and ending Sunday. 
Last year it seems that there was only 
one game played and many feared that 
the coveted series just might be phased 
out, but fear not, it is still alive and 
well and will be held once again this 
year, but in a slightly different 

Instead of the traditional village vs. 

Jorm games, it will be class vs. class. 
Four teams will present, one from each 
class. There will also be one coach per 
team who will choose his particular 
team which will have from eight to ten 
members in it. The coaches for the 
teams are as follows: Dean Halversen 
Freshman team; Dean Evans - Sopho- 
more team; Dean Schlishner ■ Junior 
team: and Dr. Dulan with the Senior 
team. Each team will have the 
opportunity to play two games. The 
first, of course, will be against their 
scheduled team and the second game 
will be a playoff of which winners will 
play against winners and losers a- 
gainst losers, etc. 

The reason for this change is 
mainly so that more people will have 
the chance to be able to actively take 
part and get involved. Another new 
addition to the series is half-time 
entertainment. On Saturday night, a 
badminton tournament is scheduled tu 
take place, followed by a Ping Pong 
tournament on Sunday night. The 
basketball games will start at 8:00 
p.m. on Saturday night and at 7:00 
p.m. on Sunday night.

On Dec. 12, 18 people were 
baptized. Then on Christmas day 500 
people attended the mission church 
from 3 other churches in the area 
including the Roman Catholic Church. 

Money pledged by SMC students 
and faculty last semester used in the 
operation of the mission took care of 
the routine operating expenses at the 
mission which include: fuel, mainte- 
nance of vehicles, maintenance of 
buildings, and food. Also, this money 
paid for the local native laborers who 
do the laundry, cooking, and take care 
of grounds maintenance. 

The present desire for the future is 
to expand in activities rather than in 
construction. This is especially true in 
the area of evangelism. An evangel- 
istic crusade is scheduled to take place 
in March. Two laymen will be 
conducting the meetings, coming from 
Puerto Cabezas which is 700 miles 
from France Asirpi. Personnel from 
the mission will also participate in 
these meetings. The Nicaragua Mis- 
sion, which is comparable to our state 
conferences, has promised to provide 
literature needed for the crusade. 

There is a need for workers to begm 
a one year term of service beginning in 
June 'l977. Both nurses (preferably 
AS graduates) and a student chaplain 
(preferably a student with junior class 
standing) are needed. Interested

Schaeffer Series Premiere 

Francis Schaeffer, Reiormed Pres- 
byterian historian and philosopher, 
has recently premiered his new film 
series "How Shall We Then Live?'" in 

Ray Hefferlin, Chariman of the 
Physics Department, and currently on 
Sabbatical leave at Oakridge, 

attended the premiere series. The 
series has 10 episodes beginning with 
the days of the Roman Empire and 
ending with prospects for our immedi- 
ate tuture. The theme is familiar to 
readers of his books Escape from 
Reason. The God Who is There, and 
He is there and He is not Silent-begin- 
ning with Thomas Aquinas, who said 
that man's intellect was not fallen, the 
humanist enterprise rose to the rennai- 
the rennaissance nad scientific/indus- 
trial revolution; it failed to find 
completeness, resolution, basic an- 
swers. The Western world then, in 
despair, plunged into the irrational, of 
which modern are, music, and films, 
and of which mysticism, the occult, the 
drug culture, and totalitarianism arc 
sysmtoms, also especially existential- 

, In a 

e that. ' 

lilcd, : 

The same decay and affluence 
ruined the Roman empire. The 
church, according to Schaeffer, is 
allowing the same thing to occur in the 
West by having had a distorted view of 
race, and by its failure to use 
accumulated wealth compassionately 
and to produce creatively in the arts 
(and sciences). Communism, which 
Schaeffer called a form of Christian 
heresy because of its compassionate 
stand on accumulated wealth, is less of 
a danger to the Western world than 

Hefferlin was at ihe film series 
February 7,8. and 9 concurrently with 
attending American Physical Society 
meetings in Chicago. He relies upon 
Schaeffer for aspects of his class in 
Issues in Physical Science and Religion 
If not too expensive, some of the 
episodes will be rented for showing in 
this class; the episode on modern film, 
art, and music would also be relevant 
for SMC's Humanities class. 

For those -inable lo see the films,, a 
book entitled How Then Shall We 
Live? by Scheiffer, can be purchased 
at Ihe Book and Bible House and at 
Covenant College.

DBill Marcom 

What is pre-registration? Simply 
stated, it is arranging class schedules 
in advance of the up-coming school 
year. While this might seem like a 
convenient idea, it is an idea whose 
time has not yet come. Why? Its 
drawbacks outweigh its advantages. 

Under the present system of regis- 
tration, a student can run in and out of 
the bureaucratic gammul at the gym in 
about three hours; all the teachers and 
advisors who must sign the registra- 
tion forms are present. But if 
pre-registration were instituted, the 
student would have to run all over the 
campus from teacher to teacher seek- 
ing those same signatures, It is much 
better to have the necessary advisors, 
consultants, and teachers readily ac- 
cessible under one roof at one time. 

Perhaps one problem that has 
caused some students to protest 
present registration methods is that by 
the time they get around to the 
registration tables they discover that 
the class they most wanted has closed 
out. Then to compound their irrita- 
tion, they find that it won't be offered 
the coming semester. How can this 
source of agitation be checked? Would 
pre-registration help? 

Yes and no. Pre-registration 
usually insures the student a place in a 
class the following semester, but only 
if he has put in his bid for a seat in that 
classroom soon enough. It must be 
remembered that a classroom can only 
accommodate so many students, and 
that SMC npcralcs on a budget and 
can only supply a given number of 
teachers and classrooms. Once the 
available number is reached it can not 
be exceeded, irregardless of the 
registration method being employed. 
In interviewing Academic Dean 
Cyril Futchcr about the feasibility of 
pre-registration here at SMC, he 
commented that time would not be 
saved. He related that 15 years ago 
SMC's own pre-registration system 
was a complete failure because four to 
six hundred students would tr)' to 
change their schedules after the school 
year had begun. 

Even on our present system, 
Futcher declared, things are bad 
enough. Two to three hundred 
students seek changes in their class 
schedules after registering. 

Realistically then, the problem 
with the present registration system is 
not in the way it is administered, 
rather, it is the human element, the 
indecision of many students as to their 
vocation which greatly confuses regis- 

The real soluiion to registration ' 
inefficiencies is pre-counseling. If 
students would go to their respective 
department heads, sit down with them 
and plan the classes they are to take 
for the following year, then when they 
got to the gym at registration time, 
they could whiz through. Registration 
only takes excessive time when the 
student arrives at school without any 
clear idea of what classes he must have 
to satisfy his major's requirements.

■ vou ever wondered why you 

: appreciate spiritual things? If 

have been plagued with this 

lion and don't seem to have the 

desire to pray or read your Bible or talk 

about spititual matters, then 

ai^be you have the same problem

ih^is. it is perfectly normal for you to

e was a man. who Jesus had a 

talk with that was faced with the 

: situation that you and I are faced 

# today. His name was Nicodemus. 

DM he loved to talk about the lord and 

any rituals and unlike 

/as very good at obeying 

jmandments. However, he 

inned from talking about the in- 

slling of the Holy Spirit, or the most 

things, like getting to know 

I that a 

which we call "born again". What 
Jesus was really saying was that the 
man needed to accept the work of the 
Holy Spirit in his life. He needed 
spiritual regeneration. Jesus then 
proceeded to tell him in verse 8 that 
the Spirit is silently moving everyone 
to behold Jesus. 

"Conversion is the result of long 
wooing by the Spirit of God— a patient 
protracted process". If you will notice 
in Genesis 3:9, it was God who first 
called to Adam and not the opposite. 
God always initiates the relationship. 
God is also calling us, and it is our 
need that alows us to hear His 
pleading, tender voice. Just like 
Adam knew that fig leaves would 
never be his complete answer for his 
nakedness, so must we recognize our 
helplessness in providing a way to 


robe ourselves with good works or 
whatever the case maybe. "He who 
feels most deeply his need of divine 
aid will plead for it, and the Holy Spirit 
will give unto him glimpses of Jesus 

■ wealth. Psalm 37:16 LB 
that will strengthen and uplift the 

After the need is recognized the 
soul must then accept the work of the 
Holy Spirit or give an answer to that 
gentle plea. Without this answer from 
the mdividual. God is held in check. 

What I'm saying is that the Holy 
Spint has been calling you ever since 
you were bom and, if you haven't 
heard it, it's because you haven't felt 
the need to listen. Now you may say 
what about those who cannot see the 
need? Trials are a means that is used 
to help us see our need for Jesus. In 
other words, the devil's pitfalls, point 
to our need for Christ. There is no 
blessing in the trial-the blessing 
comes when the trial succeeds in 
helping us see our need of Jesus. 

"Our Redeemer thirsts for recog- 
nition." He stands at the door and 
knocks. He never forces an entrance. 
But after receiving a positive response 
trom us to His faithful call, a beautiful 
thmg takes place. The Spirit directs 
our minds to behold the cross in three 
tangible ways, performed by our 
choice. This is not a work it is an effort 
on our part in choosing to behold 
Chnst. Number one is Prayer— com- 
munication between God and man. 
Number two is study— God revealing 
Himself to man. Followed by number 
three— sharing what you have learned 
in the process of the other two. 
When we see the cross by these 

a Page 7 = 
longing is being fulfilled, that is, 
knowing Christ. Your old nature now 
is hidden in His. After receiving 
repentance and forgiveness (which 
comes from Him), the Spirit implants 
in us the same power which kept 
Christ from sinning into our renewed 
hearts. "The law of God is written in 


the mind and heart, and we can say 
with Christ. "I delight to do Thy will. 
Oh My God." 

The whole process has been taken 
care of by God through Christ and the 
work of the Holy Spirit. All that awaits 
His power is the realization of our need 
and acceptance of the loving call that 


. This 

"relationship" that I've spoken of i;, „ 
daily matter. The need must be kept 
in mind at all times in order to discern 
His still small voice, at every moment 
to accept His tender call which begs us 
to behold the "lamb of God" where 
the only true victory is.

Canvassing — A Soul Winning Ministry 

At a meeting held in Dorchester, 
Massachusetts, in November of 1848. 
Ellen White received a message in a 
vision for her husband. James White. 
He was to begin to print a little paper 
and send it to the people. From this 
small beginning she saw that streams 
of light would circle the earth. And 
this is what has happened. As the 
paper was sent to the Advent believers 
it seemed to bind them together. They 
grew steadily and eventually became 
what is now the Seventh-day Adventist 
church. The publishing work, which 
united the early believers and kept 

them growing, is still one of the most 
successful soul-winning ministries the 
church as today. 

After Ellen White's vision in 
Dorchester the Lord reminded her 
many times about the importance of 
literature evangelism. !n 1880 she 
wrote. "If there is one work more 
important than another, it is that of 
getting our publications before the 
public." About five years later she 
said. "Our publications are now 
sowing the gospel seed, and are 
instrumental in bringing as many 
i the preached word.

Whole churches have been raised up 
as the result of their circulation." 
However, the greatest impact of 
these publications was to be seen in 
the future. Speaking about the latter 
rain, she wrote. "More than one 
thousand will soon be converted in one 
day. most of whom will trace their first 
convictions to the reading of our 
publications." However, many people 
are already being led to Christ as a 
result of the literature work. 

In the Southern Union during 1976. 
440 people were baptized as a direct 
result of literature evangelists. in 
addition to this they left nearly 200.000 
pieces of free literature, enrolled 
approximately 39,000 people in a Bible 
course, contacted 2,300 former SDA's 
and gave more than 7,000 Bible 
studies. In the Mexican Union during 
1975. 1047 people were lead to Christ 
and baptized as a direct result of 
Spirit-filled literature evangelists. 

This past summer I canvassed and 
personally experienced what it is like 
to contact a home, sell a book, and lead 
souls to Christ. One family in 

Northeast Georgia seemed partlculaiijl 
interested in Bible Stories for childreaj 
andBible Readings for the Home. Mt,l

John Beckett, former acting mana 
ger of WSMC-FM will take up the 
duties of dirCi-tor of the Computer 
Center, replacing Waldemar Janke 
Don Self ended his study leave March 
15, and is returning to the radio station 
to continue as manager. He has 
obtained his M.A. in program broad 
casting at Ohio University, accordmg 
to Beckett. 

Beckett is presently incorporating 
the new Hewitt-Packard 3000 com 
puter to play a dynamic role for the 
Computer Center. "The 3000 is not 
replacing the 2000, but simply ex 
panding the capacity of the Center 
says Beckett. The extremely long lines 
during second semester registration 
were due to over-taxation of the 2000 
computer, A better system has been 
devised for future use. 

The Hewitt- Packard 3000 has dou- 
ble capacity than that of the 2000. The 
new computer cna handle 16 at once 
and can produce more than one job at a 
time. The older computer can work 
with ?'' people, but can handle only^ 
one job from one person at a time. 

The 2000 can only speak the Basic 
computer language at one time. The 
scientific language called Fortran 
could also be programmed, but all 
terminals must be speaking Fortran at 
once in order to accomplish one job 
with Fortran. The 3000 can speak the 
Basic Language, Fortran, and Cobol, 
the business language at the same 
time. Four terminals in the Computer 
Center are being used by students to

SMC To Phase Out Aid 

To Nicaragua Mission Within 3 Years 

Dr. Floyd Greenleaf, Chairman of 
the Nicaragua Mission Committee at 
SMC, reported that within three years 
the committee hopes to phase out its 
aid program and incorporate the Tasba 
Raya Mission (official name of the 
mission station) into the Nicaragua 
Mission. The Nicaragua Mission is 
comparable to a conference in the U.S. 

"It's not thai we're pulling out." 
said Greenleaf. "We want to become 
part of the regular overseas mission 
program. It's not the role of a college 
to own and operate a mission. 

Greenleaf explained that under the 
current system, each year involves a 
complete turnover of the mission staff. 
"The yearly reorientation is hard on 
the local Mesquito Indians," he said. 
Thus, stabilizing leadership is the first 
goal of the reorganizational plan. To 

provide continuity, plans are being 
formed to stipend a married couple to 
serve a three-year term directing the 
mission until the phase-out is com- 

The second goal of the committee 
is to develop a stable operating budget 
for the mission with regularly defined 
>:nnrces of income. The mission's total 





S18,500. Presently, the Budget Com- 
mittee of SMC's Student Association is 
considering .in allocation of J2,250 for 
next year to defray the cost of 
evangelism, the importation of goods, 
and the purchase of medicines. 

Greenleaf concluded, "When the 
Tasba Raya Mission station is finally 
operating as a regular overseas mis- 
sion, we'll consider this program a

Bids Open On Hickman Hill Road Construction 

Bids were open last Friday after- 
noon for construction on the Hickman 
Hill Road in Collegedale. Mayor Fred 
Fuller says he was very pleased with 
the bids which ranged from $336,000 
to $570,000, with Brown Brothers 
Construction Company as the lowest 
bidder. Second lowest bidder was 
McDowell Construction and third 
lowest was Stein Construction. The 

highest bidder was Lomas Brothers 

There may be a 30-day delay on the 
construction because of an AT&T 
coasial cable which lies under the 
south edge of the pavement. This 
cable involves 300 long distance lines 
and the major TV network lines. 
This half-mile cable will be replaced 
north of the railroad.

Bern. Switzerland, and Liberty, a 
magazine specializing in church-state 
affairs, published in Washington, D.C. 

W. Melvin Adams general sec- 
retary of IRLA, describes the purpose 
of the congress as threefold: 1) to 
explore honest differences in view-

recognize and reward men of good will 
from within all societies who have 

contnbuted materially to advancement 
of religious freedom. 3) To enhance 
the IRLA's work of "quiet diplomacy" 

Dr Pierre Lanares, secretary 
general of the Association Interna- 
tionale pour la Defense de la Liberte

purpose of the congress to expose and 
condemn abuses of religious freedom 
but rather to recognize and award men 
I who have advanced the cause of 
religious freedom within their coun-

international award of service to the 
cause of religious freedom post- 
humously. Recipient of the award will 
be Dr. Fernando Man Castiella y 
Maiz, former foreign minister of Spain

Springs, Michigan. 

Discussions will present the social- 
istic concepts of religious liberty as 
well as the concepts of democratic 
countries of the western worid. No 
attacks on varying concepts will be 
permitted and no public airing of 
violations of religious liberty, though a 
special committee will hear complaints 
and make recommendations to the 
congress organizations. 

Delegates will have opportunity to 
participate in a workshop on "man's 
quest for religious freedom" immedi- 
ately after the close of the congress. 
This will be a tour of the Waldensian 
and Huguenot areas of France and 
Italy as well as places in Holland, 
Germany, Belgium^and Switzerland of 
historical importance in the cause of 
religious freedom.

Tennesseans Learn 

About Tornadoes 

With the roar of a hundred 
locomotives, tornadoes pack the most 
violent winds on the earth's surface, 
and those storms have claimed more 
than 150 lives in Tennessee since 1950, 
statistics show. 

While nothing can be done to 
prevent tornadoes, every citizen can 
take steps to avoid personal injury or 
death when the next tornado strikes, 
according to officials of State Civil 
Defense and the U.S. National 
Weather Service. 

"Governor Blanton pointed out 
that tornadoes have been a fact of life 
for most Tennesseans," said Jerry 
McFarland, state Civil Defense direc- 
tor. "It was ironic that the governor's 
home county, as well as other parts of 
the state, were under the first tornado 
watch of the season at the moment he 
signed the 'Tornado Education Week' 
proclamation." Last week was "Ten- 
nessee Tornado Education Week" and 
Governor Ray Blanton urged every 
Tennessean to learn more about how 
to protect lives and property from 
tornado damage. 

"Of course," McFarland added. 
"the state's Emergency Operations 
Center in Nashville will maintain its 
24-hour-a-day monitoring of potential 
emergency situations, including 
weather-related emergencies, which 
could endanger lives and property in 

McFarland and Cecil M. Palmer, 
meteorologist-in-charge of the U.S. 
National Weather Service in Nashville, 
listed nine rules for personal protec- 
tion during a tornado. They include: 

•Seek protection in a cellar, base- 
"lent or underground excavation if 

"My sympathy goes out to the 
hospitals where cigarette smoking is a 
problem," says Raymond L. Pelton, 
associate director of Health for the 
Seventh-day Adventists. "Fortunate- 
ly we have almost no tobacco problem 
in the 50 Adventist hospitals in the 
United States and Canada." 

Pelton, who coordinates hospital 
administration for the church's world 
headquarters, responded to an article 
in the New York Times (Monday. 
February 28) which indicated that 
smoking is a major health hazard in 
many American hospitals — even re- 
ligiously affiliated ones. The article 
reported that a black market exists in 
some facilities that refuse to vend 
cigarettes-patients buying smokes 
from staff at prices as high as 50 cents 

"A majority of employees at Ad- 
ventist hospitals do not have the 
smoking habit," Pelton continues. 
"But staff are prohibited from smo- 
king on the premises." 

Charley 0. Eldridge, administrator 
of the 366-bed Washington Adventist 
Hospital in suburban Washington. 
D.C., says patient smoking is not 
permitted in rooms, though four 
smoking areas are provided. "We 
have a regulation that room-bound 
patients who insist on smoking must 
have 3 nurse present at all times for 
fire safety." he says. "This has 

happened infrequently in my experien- 

Eldridge adds that Montgomery 
County, Maryland, in which the hospi- 
tal is located, recently passed a law 
forbidding smoking in certain public 
places. "Hospitals in the county 
questioned us on enforcing the ordi- 
nance," he says, "and they came to us 
to ask how we achieved such strict 
compliance with our own policy." 

Pelton claims the Adventist posi- 
tion on smoking is not just a negative 
one. "One church originated the 
Five-Day Plan to Stop Smoking, a 
phenomenally successful short-term 
approach to cutting out the weed," he 
says. "These group therapy sessions 
take place monthly in many of our 
hospitals and churches. 

' ' Held in conjunction with the 
American Cancer Society, American 
Lung Association and American Heart 
Association, the plan has helped tens 
of thousands quit smoking since it 
began in 1962," Pelton concludes. 
"Our figures show at least 60 percent 
of the participants are still free of the 
tobacco habit three months later." 

Some hospitals, like Washington 
Adventist, also conduct live-in pro- 
grams in a rural environment for the 
hard-core smoker who has tried and 
failed other methods of quitting. A 
regimen of diet, exercise and a 
"buddy system" is used.

*If in open country, move at right 
angles to the tornado's path, if time 
permits. If the funnel cloud is visible, 
seek shelter in the nearest depression 
in the ground. Lie flat in a ditch,
