Ed Jenkins food services direc-

mainly because of winter weather.
"It was cold and dreary a week ago
and this theme reminds us of spring
and having a good time" he said.
Johnny Castro freshman child
development major from Ralls said
he thought the theme was apt. "I
liked the idea because it was a
change" said Castro who works in
the Bean. "Since the weather was
not very good it seemed proper."

College Station forum focuses
on Philippine mission work
By Matt McKlnney
Ten ACU students and professors
traveled to College Station last

Philippine Forum where Christian
missionaries interns and others
talked about opportunities and
needs in the Philippines.
Bob Buchanan missionary-in-residence
on behalf of Asia said
the conference consisted of mis-
sionaries who have been arc
presently living in and are planning
on going to the Philippines.
These missionaries presented
reports concerning the long-term
and short-term mission efforts in
the Held in that nation Buchanan
"The missionaries as well as
interns gave reports on their work
with World Bible School urban
relations and rural relations with the
Philippine people" Buchanan said.

cial capitals where the most work
needs to be done."
One issue covered at the forum
was the Christian doctors and nurs-
es from the United States who
recently helped Filipinos after the
devastating eruption of Mount L
Pinatubo Buchanan said.
"These doctors and nurses arc
volunteers who donate their scr-i
vices without receiving a dime in
return" he said.
The volunteers have made six
trips to the island so far and as a
result more than 4000 people have
been helped Buchanan said.
"The beautiful thing about the"
whole relief effort is that it is.'
entirely Filipino-oriented and.'
directed" he said. j-
Buchanan said Christians recent- v
ly bought a stretch of land outside
the devastated area of Mount "
Penatubo and have established a-!
village to help those who have lost'
their homes and land. '!
