Main speaker at the dedication | services in November was Dr. Gay' lord Coachman, president of Dubuque university. Dr. Couchman cited the needs for Christian education and stressed that it was "crucial in rebuilding a shattered world because it deals with the children and young people, as we!! as, adults, those of more tender years who are the builders of the future, the inheritors and makers of tomorrow."
