Elder H. L. Cleveland, president of the Allegheny West Conference, offi- ciated at the organization of this Lakeview congregation in Lorain—the fortieth church in the conference. Elder J. A. Washington, treasurer of the conference, also took part in the service. The new church is the result of a Bible institute conducted last summer by Pastor David Trusty. Some of the unique features of the Bible institute included a summer day camp for children and a large graduation. In addition to attending the nightly meetings, the students of the institute were required to fill out and return Bible lessons and take a final exami- nation. Forty-two non-Adventist stu- dents, clad in cap and gown, marched to the tune of "Pomp and Circum- stance" to receive their diplomas on graduation night. The class president, salutatorian, and valedictorian gave speeches during the ceremony. Twenty-eight people were baptized at the close of the meetings, and others who attended the institute are coming to church in Lorain and pre- paring for baptism.
