We <EANNERj> February 25, 1977 Page 1 Thrust into the Future Campaign progresses "As the money comes in, the work goes on," says John Butler, assistant to the president, in explaining the continued progress of CBC's Thrust into the Future Campaign. According to Butler, 70% of the school's one million dollar goal has already been attained in pledges and cash plus the self-liquidating loan for the apartments. Work on renovating the five story main building has begun; a roof was installed last week while the initial work on the sprinkler and electric systems have been completed. Stressing how "very important" these improvements are, Butler says the entire restoration project can be completed by this summer only "if enough money comes in." Thrust into the Future isacam paign to secure needed funds to renovate CBC's five story main building. This renovationwillpro- vide the necessary facilities for meeting current and future enrollment needs. After the Thrust campaign is completed in May, a "Wall Of Faith" will be constructed at ;he entranceway ofthe main building. The names of all the churches which supported the Thrust program will be included in the mosaic tile design. "It will be a witness to students and all those who visit," explains John Butler. According to Butler, the fund- raising drive has already completed at least one phase of its goal: "All the rooms have been memorialized." Also, two new wings have been designated on the ground floor. The "Founder's Wing" is being made possible through 20 gifts of $500 each, while the "Alumni Wing" will include all the gifts from alumni. The entire top floor of the building will become 'The Music Hall" through 25 gifts of $1,000 apiece. Anyone wishing to make a memorial gift should designate their gift to one of these areas of the building. Butler urges students to "write their pastors and ask them to support CBC in this project" so that the needed funds can be met. Students are also asked to look in store windows for the "Pray for Thrust in the Future" posters which have been sent to all area businesses and churches for display. Forensics capture sweepstakes award "We did really well!" A member of the forensics team summed up last weekend's speech tournament at University of California Riverside, with those words.

Look for more information in later issues. The Board of Trustees of California Baptist College has a deep commitment to the maintenance of a strong Christian witness in the college family. It interprets Scripture to mean that God established the home so that we might exercise His qualities of forgiveness and redemption and, thereby, better understand His love for us. He has bound us to the marital relationship as He bound Himself to the church. Violation ofthe marital relationship is a sin against God and man that touches several generations. When a teacher in a Christian college becomes unable to apply forgiveness and redemption in marriage, we feel that his special responsibility in the student-teacher relationship is impaired. The trustees have a deep appreciation of the alumni and students, and respect for the faculty. The influence of the one on the other is the only reason for the labors of the trustees. In view of the concern of these groups over the recent action of the trustees on a divorce policy, the officers have determined to immediately lead the board in attempting to work toward solutions that will not compromise the basic goals of the trustees and administration.
