The panel on science and the Bible (Jan. 21 issue) has drawn a lively mail, and dozens of requests are coming in from church groups eager to rent the film (time: 30 minutes, 16 mm., black and white). For showing to church and student groups the film rents at $15 from Educational Communications Association, P.O. Box 114, Indianapolis.
This mention recalls the actual videotaping of the panel, which almost was canceled when the shift from daylight saving to standard time boggled airline schedules and posed a conflict with a long-standing Tennessee engagement for physicist Dr. W. G. Pollard. Shortly after we reminded the Oak Ridge executive director of the book he has written on divine providence, he was summoned to Washington for a top-level scientific conference. This necessarily canceled the conflicting Tennessee engagement, and the panel was confirmed as originally scheduled. Dr. Martin J. Buerger of M.I.T. flew in from Boston, and Dr. Charles Hatfield of Missouri (Rolla) from the West.
To turn to another subject, I owe a postscript to many readers who sent suggestions about those misplaced Yule cards. These were found in luggage that I had carried to Berlin for a World Congress committee meeting and that had subsequently become an emergency storage bin. The best antidote was suggested by a Bible Institute secretary. “File them,” she wrote, “under Christmas cards, and next time you’ll find them before Thanksgiving.” Or, for that matter, before Easter.
