Balmy summer breezes have blown into our editorial offices two gifted scholars as month-long staff associates. Dr. Leon Morris, principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia, was with us before attending the Seminar on the Authority of Scripture in New England. Dr. George L. Bird, chairman of the Graduate Division of Syracuse University School of Journalism, is helping to project a special issue on Communication and the Christian Gospel. In this effort we also have the aid of Dr. David E. Mason, associate director of Laubach Literacy, Incorporated. The issue will appear early this fall.

June is the month of weddings, and in the chapel of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, we are told, the wedding party received a pleasant surprise. The groom was the minister of music at the Baptist Tabernacle in Atlanta, and each of the twenty participants received a subscription to CHRISTIANITY TODAY and the bonus New Testament in Four Versions. The suggestion came, we understand, from the groom’s mother, Mrs. W. C. Wiest of Falls Church, Virginia. We ourselves couldn’t have proposed a more useful gift.
