playgrounds and for the competitive sports: men's basketball, football, and baseball; and women's basketball and softball. Twice each year, fall and sp1ing, the Student Body arranges for an evening of Open House at which time the friends of the school and espe­ cially prospective students are invited to tour the buildings and become acquainted with the details of school life. STUDENT PUBLICATIONS The Student Body sponsors two student publications: a bi-weekly news­ paper, the BIOLA CHIMES, and a yearbook, the BIOLAN. These serve to keep a record of school life, to interest young people in the College as a place of healthy activity, and to inform the friends of the school of items of current interest. KING'S DAUGHTERS AND BIOLA MEN The women of the school are bound together in spiritual fellowship as daughters of the King. The King's Daughters, the women's organization, exists for the purpose of promoting fellowship and friendship. To this end they plan various means of getting acquainted, and conduct women's devo­ tions one evening each week. The corresponding organization for the men of the school is known as Biola Men. Their program is similar to that of the King's Daughters. ATHLETICS The purpose of athletics at Biola is to provide a recreational program which combines wholesome exercise with Christian sportsmanship. The College is a member of the Southern California Christian College Con­ ference, which plans inter-scholastic competition in men's basketball, softball, and track; and women's basketball and softball. The Athletic Director and the l\1en's and Women's Recreational Representatives (elected Student Body officers) are members of the Conference Council. Intramural touch-football, basketball, softball, and women's volleyball are under the direction of the Men's and Women's Recreational Representatives working in conjunction with the Recreational Director. RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS All students must live in the college dormitory during the course of their training, with certain possible exceptions as follows: 1. The privilege of outside residence is granted to married students. Such students are responsible for their own housing. Z. If the home of the student is within the Los Angeles Metropolitan area and it should otherwise be impossible to attend, he may enter the col­ lege and reside at home for half the duration of his course. 3. If employment of a man requires outside residence this may be granted by vote of the Faculty. This privilege is not granted to women. 4. Should other circumstances exist whereby it is clearly not feasible for the student to reside in the college, special permission to live elsewhere may be obtained from the Faculty. 27
