      caused by icy conditions, at 7:00 A.M. on Wednesday, February 21, near German-

             The Park Street Church in Oberlin, Ohio, Starts One in Nearby Lorain
    Members of the Park Street church
 in Oberlin, Ohio, recognized the
 fruits of their labor when they wit-
 nessed the establishment of a new
 church in the nearby city of Lorain,
    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
   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. This was all made
possible by the dedication and sup-
port of the members of the Oberlin
