(News staff photo). , y u i, The Department Of Bible And Religious Edueation The animal Founder’s Day was I observed at Queens college Saturday, January 15, 1940. Dr. Walter I.. I Lingle, president of Davidson col lege, was guest speaker for the I occasion. Dr. Lingle began his address by tracing the history of the college I from its founding in 1770 as Queens Museum, a name which denotes a j temple of art, music, poetry, and other subjects of learning. The founders of Queens, he said, estab lished in the college’s name the jirin- ciples which they expected the edu cational institution to uphold. They believed that religion coupled with I learning forms a well rounded edu cation. “Learning and religion go j together, and no institution can get along without a combination of the I two,” he declared. Founder’s Day was described by Dr. Lingle as a good time to take I stock of the objectives of an institu tion, its faculty and its students. Colleges, he said, are trying to give each student a rich storehouse of I 'nformation and knowledge, to have them see and appreciate the finest [ and best in life, to stir up in them he desire to he something or do I something, and to develop i\ Chris tian personality, which is a result of j constant contacts with other Chris tian personalities. The first objective of an institu tion like Queens college is to train Christian leaders for the home, so- J ciety, school, church, and the gen- I eral social order, declared Dr. Lin gle. “A beautiful Christian liome s the most beautiful thing this side I of Heaven,” he added. Christian colleges are more able I to send out to the world good Chris tians than other institutions because they can demand certain character istics in the faculty, students and curriculum. They ean demand that the members of the faculty he Chris tians, they ean build Christianity into the curriculum, and they can (Continued on Page Three.) WELCOME!

Anx ct,v, incompetency, failure, fear, anc many other disruptions to personal ty and the abundant life can be erased with poise, confidence, pa- ience, and a wholesome personality ■^aking their rightful place. Take a peek into Peale’s book, YOU CAN WIN, found on the department re serves in the library. The Bible student bas varied op portunities for displaying ability for creative work. In the depart ment this year a group of students are constructing a tabernacle, lift- ng the dimensions right out of the Old Testament to set up the mod- rn place of worship. The Book of Esther is being transformed into 20th century drama. Combined proj- cts on the Book of Genesis have proven very stimulating. Then, of course, you remember, the beautiful musical program based on the Psalms given in chapel by one class. The atmosphere of purposefulness and sincerity in religion which per vades in our classrooms is due in no small way to the fine eharacter and personality of each of our Bible instructors. Dr. Gettys presents the philosophy, the psychologj^ the facts, and the truths of the scriptures in a dynamic, vivid and realistic way. He makes them so real that they become a part of any' one who stud- es with him. Mrs. Byrd’s philosophy of a practical application of the scriptures in our lives is illustrated by' the splendid example of her own life. Such instructors mean much to a Bible department. Two Classes Edit Paper A reincarnation of the Stunt Night spirit will be evidenced again when the Freshman and Sophomore classes compete for the honor of publish ing the best edition of the “Queens Blues”. Queens College is striving to show ts students **wherc they are going, where they' are when they get there, md where they'’ve been when they get back, according to the thought wliieh Dr. Lingle left with us on Founders Day'. ^'Learning and re- igion go together,” he stated, “and no institution can get along without a combination of the two.” I he present Sophomore class won tlie contest last year, and it is with the same Editor and Man ager that they hojie to repeat their victory'. 1 heir cajiahle leaders are Ann Peyton and Ann Mauldin.
