an immediate acceptance of Christ. His companion followed and he too was cor nered and eventually professed Christ as his Saviour. In speaking later to the first lad we discovered he considered himself too low and vile for the Lord to accept. David, the adulterer, ' the woman taken in sin, the demoniacal man and the woman out of ~whom seven demons were cast were all cited, as were also the words of our blessed Jesus that none that come will be cast out. The efficacy of His atoning blood, and His power to save and keep, were suffi cient to break down every barrier and “He came to Jesus as he was Weary and worn and ^td, He found in Him a resting place And Christ has made him glad.” Prayer Bands Formed Our young men are forming prayer bands and then going out with a testi mony which carries conviction.

We were told to discover always a point of contact in our approach to men, and Biola Hall from the very beginning has certainly proven such a point. They seem to sniff the food from afar, for night and day we can always find men, boys and children receptive to eternal realities. While we were giving out the message one day to a large body of intelligent men who stood for over an hour in the hot sun and who gratefully and eagerly grasped the Gospels of John offered, one young man, bearing all the marks of dissipation and defeat, pushed his way through the crowd and stood as close to the speaker as possible. Presently his “ buddy” pushed his way through and pulling him by the sleeve roughly urged him to leave.
