Transcription

Cobber men and women have gone out into every honorable calling of life. One hundred and fifty-one of them serve their Lord directly in religious work, as pastors or lay workers. At the moment about six hundred and fifty are with their country’s colors. Five hundred and fifty-five of them have continued in the field of education, thereby taking the torch of learning from their college back again to the schools of the Northwest from which they once came. Other honorable walks of life claim seven hundred others.
Soon two thousand Concordia men and women will have taken the message of a Christ-centered education out into every direction from their Concordia halls. The flow of such men and women out upon the middle west will go on. The future of our church demands that it go on. From the classrooms of our Christian colleges must come the leaders of the Faith in our country’s and in our church’s new, great post-war future. It will come from nowhere else.
