As we were enjoying our meal in the dining

our attention to the babble of voioes. Suoh a

One person suggested that the oontinual up-and-
down flow seamed ae waves coming in to
the shore. A praotioal-minded young man
thought the sound was similiar to the noise
of chickens at their feeding time.
Whatever illustration will best describe
this drone of numerous conversations being
carried on at the same time is for you to
deoide. However, that hum shows ua that the
occupants of the dining hall are oontent and
ShowersS The past two weeks we have
enjoyed showers of spiritual blessings.
And permit m® to say that at times the
blessings came down in torrents. Brother
Martin has departed from our midst but the
messages of th© revival will live on. Who
of us will forget the cry of th© operator
of that fatal draw-bridge, "If only I had?"
Our Maker has again seen fit to send us
natural showers of rain. And the showers
came at a time when they were needed. 1 can
just hear the people of Harrisonburg rsjoioing
over the fact that it rained0 The water situation
had become acuteo But now it has rained.
Job! Digging garden® See Mo T. Braokbill
Well, w e 5v© had a Revivals The messages
were truly heart-searching. We thank God and
Brother Martin for them. The Spirit of God
was present with us and made Himself manifest in
the saving of souls. We praise God for this.
But again, w e ’ve had a Revivals Yea, of course*
w® know that. Well, what are w© going to do
about it? Let it go at that? Ho. Go back into
our former sins? No
to do about it then?
Y/ell, what are we going
We are going to walk closer
to God our Father than ever beforeo We are
going to seek always to do His willo We are
going to be one of Hio soul-wlnners. We are
going to llv© a life of testimony to the world.

The High Sohool Senior class of 1941-42
held Its first meeting last Friday as announced
by Brother Mark Stauffer, our capable adviser*
The meeting was celled in order to elect the
officers for the year* And what a grand time
we had eleoting a vice-presidentI There were
two r e m o t e s taken before J. Lester Brubaker
was finally chosen. Norman Kraus was again
elected presidents Our secretary, Pearl
Hostetter; treasurer, Sarah Marie Yoder; and
business manager, Benjamin Kraybill, were reelected*
With such a dependable staff of class
officers and such an ambitious class of seniors
we anticipate many rioh experiences this school
The "Quints" have not made their appearance
lately. I suppose they are busy with their lessons.
They are enlarging their vocabulary, and
probably take long hikes. I thought it was such
a pity that the squirrels did not gather up more
of the acorns on the ground. But the other day
I examined a few and all were wormy. The
squirrels have an uncanny way of knowing whether
or not a nut is good without wasting any time
opening it. And they do not need x-ray either.
Did you know Nature ha a her full crew of
artists in the country of late? Watch out when
you walk in the woods—they’ll splash some waterproof
color on youi A few have already left
since the painting job is nearly done. Yes,
they have gone to the southern hemisphere to
green up things there. They will return occasionally
this winter to give the country a
coat of flat white.

I want to fling a violet your way. I just
want to tell you how muoh I enjoyed singing
with you the past two weeks# You followed me
like a ohoruo. Singing with a bit of interpretation
adds so much to the spirit and meaning.
And you didn't run ahead of me when
singing the invitation hymns. I am sure your
beautiful cooperation has contributed not a
little to the general blessing of the meetings.
Lot us keep up this good response to the
ohoristers. Thank you.

Do you know that India is a land rich in
minerals, rivers, and scenery? Dr. Fred
Brenneman presented to us in a moat interesting
way a glimpse of that far-off countx*y. We
were told that the population is seven times
as great as that of the D. S. There is muoh
religion in India, but it is materialistic,
selfish, and superstitious. The sad part of
the picture is that the great influential
leaders of India are rejecting Christ and Hits
Sooner or later India is going to faoe a
mighty orisig—will they ask for complete
freedom from British rule or will they remain
under the Union Jack?
What have you decided today? Sach day
brings with it the necessity to say "Yea" or
"No". You face a problem. Seriously you
aek yourself the question "Shall I, or shall I
not?" All the emotions that you possess in
your small being bockon you to say "Yes." Of
course you will say "Yes." It is just what
you have wanted to do. It would be delightful,
flattering, consoling, perhaps even, you
hope, permanently satisfying. Suddenly
common-sense shakes her finger at you. You
are reminded that your emotions have been
ignoring your Ideals. She tells you that you
know better, you cannot afford to say yes.
She reminds you that you have the ability to
think straight. You are confused. You
vacillate. Sometimes your emotions win, then
again ooionon-sense has the last word. Finally
you take one last long look at your ideal and
you say with determination "I will say ’No'."
Suddenly you feel strong and self-respecting.
Once more you know that you have used the
powers of aelf-oontrol. With Tennyson you
feel like saying, "Self-control leads life
to sovereign power."
