Appreciation of the Revival Meetings
W e have again been u p o n the mountain top
wit h God during the last f e w w e e k s 0
7/e have heard the Master call, "Come and
dine." And we have b e e n feasting fro m his life
giving word, , •
A picture, placed in the main entrance of
the school by Brother Brackbill,'received much
attention for several days. Some of us almost
immediately saw the face of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Many of ua had to gase at the picture several
hours before vra oould catch a vision of his w o n derful
faoe„ It brought to us ane w the challenges
’’Fasten your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in Hie wonderful face,
And the things of this world
W i l l grow strangely dim.
In the light of His glory and grace."
The revival meetings have made us realise
ane w the need of following closely,if we would
receive the showers of blessings God longs to
give ua from his over full storehouse.

Pennsylvania vs. Wo r l d
The boys played the basketball game Saturday
night w i t h determination^ One b o y didn't even
stop w h e n he came to the wall but luckily the
wall was strong enough. W h e n the first game ended
the score was 9-6 in favor of the world. In
the second game the Pennsylvanians played harder
and w o n b y five points. No hard feelings should
be felt each w o n a game .

All*s Well, That Ends Well
I was gradually growing into an intimacy
with my roommates and was confident that she
would never keep anything from me*
This past week, however, has tested our
friendships It was the first time she had
left the room without an explanation and she
d i d n’t even satisfy my curiosity wha n she re turned
o M y roommate's behavior continued to
be strange all week..
Her mysterious departure on Saturday
evening was the climax. Could I ever forgive
her for that? I wonder if she knew how long
it took me to go to aleepi
I was awakened at 10s45 b y the creaking
of the door and then came the explanation. I
found out that it was very hard for her to keep
the secret of the trip to Grottoes but she has
proven to be trustworthy.
This experience was a tension on the invisible
cord which bound us together. Since
it was woven w i t h substantial f i b e r s„ our
friendship could not easily be broken. N o w I
believe it was even strengthened by the strain.
To prove it, 3he fed me taffy.
