By HARDMAN HIGH SCHOOL
Friday, August 2 saw the closing
of a summer Bible school which in
every respect has been most grati
fying. Attendance maintaining a high
average; work and conduct pleasing
and all that could be asked; and
expressions of enthusiasm and ap
preciation from pupils and matrons
have made this school a memor
One pupil, Perry Adams, holds a
first high in not having missed a
day nor been tardy even once. Others
were awarded perfect attendance
credits for not having missed after
being enrolled. Those received beau
tiful gold and silver star awards
for Sunday morning and evening
church attendance .during the three
week school term.
This particular type of Bible
school features Bible memory work
with the definite, practical study of
the Bible, systematically planned,
taught and directed, the Lord Jesus
Christ as Savior of all mankind.
The school was rounded out with
a program of Scripture, catechism,
and oral recitation work, interspersed
with songs and choruses, all of which
was followed by a picnic dinner,
provided by friends and parents. A
Bible school next year? We hope so.
Many are already asking for it and
in the meantime much fruit is
looked for from this initial effort.
