Station 'IOWA' for Methodists Burr Oak Pastor Is Camp's Announcer By JOHN D. CLINTON Clear Lake—"This is Station IOW A," might be the first sentence, from Methodist camp loud speakers, for announcer duty is given that Iowa Methodist pastor—Irving Oscar William Arnold from Burr Oak, Iowa. His parents undoubtedly intended the letters of his names to sound off for the home state all the way. He usually, with Mrs. Arjiold, who is Institute Dean of Women, serves 4 Iowa churches, including with the residence church, Ft. Atkinson, Calmar and Ossian. He serves 2 whole districts as he sounds off hourly to instruct 544 people as to what and when to do it. Start at 6:45 At 6:45, it is "Good Morning." The pre-breakfast assembly is Morning Watch at 7:15 Wednesday morning, Dr. Ronald Terry of Dubuque was seeking guidance in the Book of Mark with the topic, "How To Get Lost and Found." He used the famous 3 lost stories in the Bible, the coin, the sheep and the son. He told the institute that the coin got lost doing nothing and the sheep was aimless, but regarding the son, said Dr. Terry, "His was a self determined journey to a far country and he sought the.: fellowship he needed before it was too late." Everybody goes to Bible class, with 13 teachers directing exploration in Mark. There is a half circle of trees outside the tabernacle, all of them being Elms, there among the native basswood forest on south shore. These trees center an area called Elmwood Bowl. In old days before the youth organization name changed to fellowship, the Elm interpretation was "Epworth League Methodist." When the name "Fellowship" came in, the young people thought Elm probably did better "Every Living Methodist." f "M" Stands for Mark This week the "M" stands for Mark. Among teachers comes Rev. Lawrence Carlton, the Iowa youth director for Methodism from the Des Moines office. There is one parsonage team, The Reverend Robert Williams and wife from GREGERSON INSURANCE AGENCY SEE US ABOUT AUTOMOBILE and FIRE INSURANCE 206-207 J. C. PENNEY BLDG.

In an Elmwood Bowl clas: Wednesday, 40 young people were making up for use on their high school friends at home, as they needed it, a definition of wha they thought a church should be They had asked ministers abou the grounds and then fashioned this from 40 minds: "A church is a fellowship of believers, withou regard for race or color, for the study and application of the highest teachings, so that God's kingdom shall come on earth." Adds to Singing Breadth of color gets application daily as Miss Mildred Johns comes from Kansas City Nationa College for Christian Workers to lead institute singing, and do an excellent job at it herself, especially on the Negro spirituals she knows so well. Who should add additional color these closing days but a house trailer full of boys from Piney Woods school? The male quartet was first hearc Tuesday night. Of these 4 plucky southerners, 3 are blind boys. In the afternoon, this Station "IOWA" goes to work at 2 calling all classes to crafts.
