VOLUME 10 NUMBER 5   29 December 1968


Dr. John A. McIntyre has been elected to the Executive Council of the ASA to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Dr. Richard H. Bube at the completion of his term of office. Dr. McIntyre received a comfortable, though not overwhelming, share of the votes over Dr. Michael Mecherikoff, Jr.


President ----------------- Dr. Charles Hatfield, Jr.

------ ---Dr. Wayne-U. Ault

Secretary-Treasurer ------ Dr. Donald C. Boardman


Jack McIntyre, newly elected to the ASA Executive Council, made the Associated Press 'wire early in December. The Los Angeles Times, no mean rag, carried a 2-column by 'One foot article headed, "Physicist Says Science May Support Religion - Nuclear Specialist Thinks His Training Helps Him Understand and Accept Gospel."

"7t was the attractiveness of this very comprehensive and beautiful theory, plus the fact that everywhere that I could test it in my own experience it ran& true, that led me to become a Christian", stated McIntyre, As for seemingly contradictory section in Scripture, such as St. Paul's passages about predestination, followed by those about free will, McIntyre says science is loaded with similar paradoxes, such as the electron's variant behavior
a particle and a wave, depending on how you look at it.

was a pic-up from Jack's article in a recent issue of Christianity Today. Coming from a Professor of Physics of Texas A&M University and Associate Director of the Cyclotron Institute, such a testimony carries weight in the world.


They don't really come out and say it like that usually, but more like this: '"You are a respected and successful scientist. How can you go along with this Christian stuff?"

Dr. James H. Kraakevik, former Chairman of the Department of Physics at Wheaton College, admits this question prompted to put down the characteristics of a Christian intellectual. First he defines "intellectual" as meaning creative, imaginative, productive, stimulating, concerned and articulate rather-than egotistical, obscure, unable or unwilling to communicate, uninvolved. Jim feels that the Christian
intellectual' must first be a liberal person. Not necessarily in politics or economics but one broadly educated, open to new ideas, creative, unbiased, considerate of others, generous with his ideas, energy, time and himself. The second characteristic is being spiritual in the Biblical sense, not other-worldly. And thirdly the Christian intellectual must be active, moving from contemplation to commitment.

For Jim, point three meant returning to Nigeria last summer for a second term under the Sudan Interior Mission as a teacher at Titcombe College. Here 360 students attend, ranging from 14 to 21 years of age, many of whom come bound in superstition and leave as Christians.


As Dave Moberg reminds us the greeting card industry insists that "every courteous and thoughtful person" will mail one of their product to everyone else, whether they are courteous or thoughtful or not.  Thank God, not everyone follows the canned sentiment route. Here are excerpts from this season's mailbag, all from truly courteous and thoughtful persons!

Roger and Trudy Voskuyl: "Look us up when you are in Washington D. C. again." (Exec. Dir., Council for the Advancement of Small Colleges.)

Don and Betty Boardman tell of three summer months studying geology in Iceland, Norway and Scotland on the way to the International Geologic Congress in Prague. (P. S. The Soviet army got there first!) Enjoyed having Chuck Hatfield visit; "These ASA people are great."

Elving and Carol Anderson included a color picture of themselves and their four lovely children. Elving looks a bit downcast, as though contemplating the genetic implications of the situation.

Jim and Melba Forrester send theirs from Puerto Rico where Jim is Vice-President for University Relations for Inter-American University with some 8,000 students in the school. Jim considers his urgent task is the training of a Puerto Rican for the job.

Marshall and Helen Welles were visited by the editor and his wife in Bangkok in October, and they almost beat us home. They are now on furlough from Marshall's big task as Medical Director of Bhngkok Christian Hospital which he started 25 years ago and now has 150 beds.

Robert and Jean McAllister attended the General Assembly of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada in Calgary. Bob had a display which drew considerable attention.

Grace and Peter Stoner write that Peter is presenting a series to the High School and College groups of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Newport, California.

Bernie and Alta Ramm tell of their experiencing of contrasts after two years in the Middle East. From the Arab world where history is calculated in millenial and ancient culture is venerated to the U. S. and a society which is exploding with the "now" generation. Bernie has had the busiest year of his ministry.

Harold and Dorothy Hartzler report that their son, Jonathan, was married and received his Masters Degree from Mankato State College on the same day. Jonathan studied the habits of the chickadee and now moves on to University of Montana in a doctorate program.

Andy and Frances Anderson are up to their ears in church work and Andy is engineering at Lockheed between hernia operations.

Gene and Lois Walker have moved from Westmont College to Baylor where Gene teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in psychological measurements and psychopathology. Gene has published several papers this year and is working on several more articles and a book. He is also contributing editor for The Clinical Psychologist and editor of a newsletter for younger psychologists.

Roland and Muriel Icke sent out another issue of "The Icke's Case History" which revealed that Roland landed his first silverside salmon which was tha-a-at long. He also attended the Clinical Congress of the American College of Surgeons where he profited most by courses on multiple, life-endangering injuries. Heart transplants are the rage, but Roland does not plan to do any in the near future.

Dave and Helen Moberg seem surprised that Dave's new job as Chairman of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Marquette is so time-consuming. Conclusion: many more people in the department than he is used to!

Marion and Vera Barnes still find the affairs of Covenant College a rewarding and demanding adventure * Enrollment has stayed up and the first group of four-year Students has graduated.

Dick and Betty Bube have had less travel this year because of a painful back problem for Dick. At Stanford Dick has started a Senior Colloquium in the General Studies Program on "Issues in Science and Religion" and continued as faculty sponsor of IVCF.

Frank and Peg Cassel sent a card and what do you suppose was on the outside? Yep, a bird. And a newsy letter inside. Frank manages a couple of courses, advises graduate students and.keeps physically fit by dodging committee work.

Bob Griffiths reports that he is still, alas, single. He is Associate Professor of Physics at Carnegia-Mellon University. He spent some time with his brother, Hugh, who is working on a research project (liquid He3 He4 mixtures) leading to a PhD at Stanford where Bob spent five good years of his life. A snowmobile ride on the Athabasca Glacier in Banff was almost as rough as the streets of Pittsburgh, but the scenery is much better. Bob serves as faculty advisor of Tech Christian Fellowship (IVCF).


At the request of Chairman David R. Sheriff, Dr. Ralph D.-Winter was given the task of interpreting Dr. Bube's 11 for re-examination of ASA objectives as applied to the Southern California area. The following is his task report for the consideration of other section officers:

SUBJECT: Amplification of Purpose for the Southern California Section of the ASA.

To: Executive Council, Southern California Section, ASA

FROM: Dr. Ralph D. Winter

1. The ASA has by now amply demonstrated that Christian men of science has a real and wonderful bond in their common Christian faith. Perhaps God would now have us turn our attention, more than we have thus far, to the possibilities of Christian fellowship based upon the very scientific work in which we are involved and to which God has called us. This is, to some extent, an unexplored bond between us, since ASA has thus far mainly emphasized the religion bond between us and it represents a dimension of highly potential contact with those who do not share our Christian faith.

The purpose of vocationally-based fellowship can range from meaningful personal spiritual edification to the most concrete areas of service to which the sciences are related.

a) At the one extreme, the "Pittsburgh Experiment" with Rev. Don James, which is an outgrowth of Dr. Sam Shoemaker's work in that city, is one example of business and technical people coming together for profound Christian fellowship based on a common vocational background. But the small-group movement is now so widely known that almost everyone has heard of something of the kind. The "Yokefellow" movement of Elton Trueblood is another example. More recently Keith L. Miller has highlighted similar possibilities. Elizabeth O'Conner's book, "Call to Commitment" sketches the same kind of meaningful fellowship. Her new book "Journey Toward, Journey Outward", goes into detail.

b) At the other extreme of service-oriented rather than edification oriented fellowship, you have the example of a group of Christian lawyers getting together in Chicago to set up a free legal-aid clinic in a poverty-area of their city. They soon found that the legal code of Chicago ought itself to be re-written so as to avoid many of the pitfalls which had ensnared their clients. Again, the Pittsburgh Experiment also has action projects of this type, which simply could not be accomplished apart from a vocationally-based Christian fellowship: a group of Christian lawyers can tackle problems a mixed group cannot handle.

c) This leads to the recommendation that the ASA national commissions on general areas of science could promote sectional fellowships in those same scientific areas in the various regions of the country, and that, say those in biological sciences in a given region be put in touch with each other, those in management sciences, etc. The purpose of these regional, functionally united meetings will not conflict with, but actually feed the purpose of more heterogeneous fellowship in those regions and nationally. They can review and stimulate the endeavors of individual members in their own scientific pursuits, and jointly tackle problems that fall into their scientific area of concern. This may be an excellent point at which non-Christians can get interested in the Christian faith. It will no doubt generate a great deal for the present Journal and present set of scheduled meetings.

2. Other suggestions are as follows:

a) The ASA can offer to help the National Association of Christian Schools in its current desire to elaborate textbooks which will supplement science texts in public schools, giving some of the uniquely Christian insights, and biographical and historical data which secular books must shy away from, e.g., the fact that Michael Faraday was an ordained minister who preached every Sunday.

A series of carefully done "supplementary texts" that lean up against scientific secular texts used throughout several states, will be a boon not only to Christian Day Schools but to Sunday School teachers who are hard pressed to make a significant point of contact with their children along lines that they study all week. Eventually, perhaps, almost all secular-school subjects (even English, history, and social studies -- which are outside of ASA purview of course) could have supplementary texts tastefully done that would add inspiration and Christian vision to subjects that otherwise paint (by silence) a Godless universe.

b) ASA can ask IVCF and CCCI to help in the establishment of student chapters on the various colleges and university campuses. ASA can explore the possibilities of campus-based ASA faculty fellowships.

c) ASA can collect data on all sub-associations like the Christian Medical Society (Oh Boy! won't CMS like that! Ed.) in order to contribute to those that exist and encourage the functions of others that are "gaps" in the pattern, e.g., is there a Christian Psychological Association? (Answer: Yes! Ed.) Does there need to be one? Part of the Christian task surely, is to monitor the structures of the world in this way. Such organizations can meet at the same time and place of the secular counterparts, earlier or later so as not to conflict but to take advantage of the travel budgets.

3. Quite likely amplification of purpose of a national organization like ASA can be tried out regionally so as to develop an experimental approach to the problem prior to any decisive plans nationally.

The Southern California Section had a meeting on Saturday, 16 November, 1968, at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena. A panel discussion on the subject "The Scientific Response to the Doctrine of Biblical Inerrancy" was moderated by Dr. Mark Biedebach, Asst. Prof. of Biology, California State College at Long Beach. Those on the panel were Daniel Fuller, Ph.D., Dean of the Faculty, Fuller; Granville Henry, PhD., Dept. of Mathematics, Claremont Mens College; Rev. Mark Trotter, Pastor, The Methodist Church of Sierra Madre; Ralph Wintt-r, Ph.D., Assoc. Prof., School of World Missions, Fuller.

The panel was purposely chosen so that a wide spectrum of views and backgrounds were represented.


On 16 November 1968 the Western New York Section of the ASA met at Norton Hall, S. U. N. Y., Buffalo. President Stephen Calhoon presided. Dr. Donald Munro reportee on the national convention held at Grand Rapids and urged all to attend the next one.

Rev. Walter V. Watson, Dean of the Evening and Extension School and Professor of Psychology at Buffalo Bible Institute, presented a paper, "Subjective Psychological Testing in Guiding those Seeking to Work in Christian Vocations." He reported successes and shortcomings by reviewing several anonymous case histories.

Dr. Phyllis Chamberlain, Prof. of Chemistry at Roberts Wesleyan College reviewed the book, "God, The Atom, and the Universe" by James Reid (Published by Zondervan). After dinner, the group was addressed by Mr. Wilson Greatbatch, Adjunct Prof. of Bioelectronics at Houghton College and Vice-President and Technical Director of Mennon-Greatbatch Electronics, Inc., Clarence, N. Y., on "Implantable Cardiac Pacemakers: Past, Present and Future."

The next meeting is scheduled for 3 May 69 at Roberts Wesleyan and Dr. Duane Gish has been invited as speaker.


On 9 Nov. 69 the Metropolitan New York Section met at The King's College, Briarcliff Manor, N. Y. After a business meeting a panel discussion on "Behavior Manipulation" was held with panelists Dr. Gary Collins, Professor of Pastoral Psychology, Conwell School of Theology, Philadelphia; Dr. Purnell Benson, Assoc. Prof. of Business Administration, Rutgers, Newark, N. Y.; Dr. John Carter, The King's College; Dr. James Linsey of Nyack Missionary College.

After dinner Prof. James 0. Buswell IIT of St. John's University, Jamaica, N. Y., spoke on the subject, "Sambo and Jim Crow: Negro Stereotypes in Slavery I and Segregation." This was a study of behavioral manipulation via personality change under extreme social conditions.

Dr. Carl C. Gustafson, Chairman of the Division of Natural Science at The King's College, made all the arrangements. A spring meeting is planned for 3 May 69 featuring MARC.


ASA scientists are involved in a study of atmospheric electricity at the Naval Research Laboratory in Anacostia, District of Columbia. Stuart G. Gathman and Dr. William A. Horpel are active in the project at the present time under the.direction of Robert V. Anderson. Dr. James Kraakevik has participated in,the past. All are graduates of Wheaton College. Members of this group have made observations in Africa and Australia in their study of variations of atmospheric electricity with universal time. Current density is measured by obtaining the electrostatic field strength and electrical conductivity with special instruments developed at NRL and through the application of Ohm's Law the current density can be determined. Making the measurements at 9000 feet minimizes all variables but time. The observation crew remain "parked" at 9000 foot elevation in an airplane especially outfitted for the work. They hope to throw light on the question as to how electricity gets into the atmosphere. Thunderstorm activity as the source has been questioned recently.


Do your planning early, and GET to the convention in 1969! It will be held 19-22 August at Gordon College in Massachusetts. The theme will be "Science, Scripture and Social Issues" and Dr. Gary R. Collins,, Conwell School of Theology, Park Avenue and Norris Street, Philadelphia, Pa. 19122 is the Program Chairman. While the committee would be happy to consider papers on any topic, they are hoping to amass a considerable number on contemporary social issues such as civil rights, crime, civil disobedience, space exploration, poverty, war, birth control, etc.

Gary urges all ASA members feeling a slight creative tickle to send him an abstract of not less than 500 words mu prontissimo.

Prior to the convention, on 18 August 69, a workshop in "Science and Re.ligion in the High School Classroom" has been proposed.


Mr. Wesley A. Kuhrt, who has been an ASA member for the past four years, has been elected President of the Sikorsky Aircraft Division of the United Aircraft Corporation. Having served as Director of Research for United since 1959, supervising the activities of 500 professional and 700 support employees, Kuhrt now takes over as President of Sikorsky which has its headquarters and main plant in Stratford where much of the pioneer design and production of commercial and military helicopters has taken place. He holds a bachelors and masters degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and is Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Barrington College, a member of the advisory committee to the School of Engineering, University of Hartford. Congratulations!


Dr. Wallace A. Erickson, long time stalwart Fellow of the ASA, occupies a position little appreciated throughout the group. -Let's survey the situation for the sake of general information. Wallace is President of Wallace A. Erickson & Company; everybody knows that. But, organized in 1940, Wallace A. Erickson & Co. has included the following subsidiaries: General Color Co.; Postin Building Co.; Erickson Technichemical Co.; Lee Smith & Son Mfg. Co.; Talent Finders, Inc.; Major Plastics, Inc.; Anestex, Inc.; Cade Products, Inc.; Kelly-Burroughs, Inc.; Deslauriers Metal Products Co.; Midwest Biochemical Co.; Wheaton Servi-Center; The William Getz Corp.; P. S. I. Industries, Inc.

And that isn't all. He is also President of the Erickson Foundation, a non-profit foundation established in 1951 for the purpose of encouraging the pursuit of excellence in Christian leadership. Some of the projects of the foundation include a Christian leadership development program, a Christian management development programs a psychological and vocational testing program for Christians and development of a contemporary Christian world view.

Wallace has been active in International Christian Broadcasters as a member of their board, the American Institute of Management and the American Management Association in addition to his professional association with American Chemical Association. Many irons in fire when totem up.


1968 has been another prolific year for Dr. Richard H. Bube who manages to crowd intc a busy professional life many positive contributions to the Christian community as well. ASA members are aware that this was the year Dick was at the helm of the ASA, really communicating his ideas on what the ASA should be and stimulating many to worb in the direction he pointed.

This was the year "The Encounter Between Christianity and Science" appeared (Wm. B. Eerdmans) as well as "The Relationship Between The ASA and the Scientific Community" in the Journal of the ASA (20,2,1968). In Eternity Magazine his "Speaking the Scientific Lingo" (18,10,35) "UFO, ESP and LSD" ( and "Scientism is Dead" ( 9 2,35-1968) ap~_eared about this time to which Wu-st be added a review of R. E. D. Clark's book, "The Christian Stake in Science" (19,7,45)

The scientific base was built up nicely with the appearance of "Effects of Annealing on the Photoelectric Properties of ZnS Crystals", J. Appl. Phys. 38, 4409 (1967) (with George H. Blount and A. C. Sanderson); "Effects of Radioactive 35S in ZnS Crystals", J. Appl. P-hys. 38, 4550 (1967) (with G. H. Blount and P. B. P. Phipps); "Phoelectric Properties of"p-Type AnSe:Cu Crystals," II-VI Semiconducting Compounds, D. G. Thomas, Editor, W. A. Benjamin, New York (1967) pp. 1315-1322 (with G. B. Stringfellow); "Photothermoelectric and Thermally Stimulated Thermoelectric Effects: Techniques in Photoelectronic Analysis", J. Appl. Phys. 39, 1807 (1968) (with R. Lawrence); "Photoelectric Evaluation of Electron Radiati7o-n Damage in CdS Crystals", J. Appl. Phys. 39, 2908 (1968) (with H. B. Im); "Photoelectronic Properties of ZnSe Crystals", Phys. iev. 171, 903 (1968) (with G. B. Stringfellow); "Radiative Paid Transitions in p-Type ZnSe:Cu Crystals", J. Appl. Phys. 39, 3657 (1968) (with G. B. Stringfellow); "Interpretation of Hall and Photo-Hall Effects in Inhomogeneous Materials", Appl. Phys Letters, August 15, 1968; "Gain Studies in Photoconductors", J. Appl. Phys., September (1968) .(with W. A. Gardner and G. A. Marlor).


Charles H. Troutman now realizes, after two years in Costa Rica, how much of his experience in student work has been based upon presuppositions and conditions which do not exist in Latin America. Latin students are very different:

1) To them the Bible has no special relevance. It has not played any significant part in their background, either in church or society.

2) Christianity as expressed by the Roman Church may be of historical interest, but students simply dismiss the faith as of no particular value and cannot conceive of any Christian application in our age.

3) Most students are so burdened with the tragedy of underdevelopment of their countries that an immediate remedy is their absorbing concern. Nothing, not even the claims of the Son of God gets to them unless it presents a possible solution to theSE problems. And then the difficulty is that Christianity can be made so relevant that it turns out to be completely devoid of the Good News.

"It appears to us after watching the scene for two years that the most productive spiritual work centers around those Christians, Latin and North American alike, who are willing to undertake the difficult task of high school or university teaching for Christ's sake", says Charles.


Stuart Harverson, M. D. is serving in Vietnam under Worldwide Evangelization Crusade. In a letter dated 23 Sept. 68 he writes, "Ha-Bec has been under serious attack since August 22. A very large force of N. Vietnamese soldiers has been monorting the village ... and came near to burning the village of Ha-Bec. When I was away in DaNang they came into a little refugee settlement built outside the Ha-Bec fence, 20 yards from our house, set fire to the huts and carried away some Vietnamese captives. A shell from our battery fired to disperse them fell in the sand close by and blew many tiles off the roof. While I was in the village some communist mortar shells fell on huts 200 yards away, killing the villager and burning many huts .... To my relief a messenger came through from Ngai telling of the safety of the orphans.


Dr. Emil Gaverluk is pointing the way to still another way of communicating modern information from a theistic point of view in lecturing at school assemblies. For example, in one of his lectures, "New Worlds Need New People", Dr. Gaverluk leads through the coming exciting technological tools to the heart of the new generation. A new kind of person is needed to cope with himself in the new world. He must grow, not only in mind but in body and spirit.


Dr. Brian P. Sutherland, now Chairman of the Board of Regent College, recently incorporated in British Columbia, Canada, tells us that the first program of the college will be a summer school to be held at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver B. C. from July 2 to August 15, 1969. A number of elective courses will be offered on the general theme: "Towards a Christian View of Contemporary Man", including "General Psychology and the Christian Life" by Dr. Paul Barkman and "Philosophical Issues in a Scientific Age" by Dr. Charles Hatfield. For further information on what looks like an interesting program write to: Regent College, #202-1600 West 6th Avenue, Vancouver 9, British Columbia, Canada.


Dr. John T. Roscoe has left Colorado State and joined the faculty of Kansas State University. He will teach research methods in the College of Education and statistics in the College of Arts and Sciences.

His first book, "Fundamental Research Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences" will be released by Holt, Rinehart and Winston about March 1. A companion volume, "Experimental Design -- A Multivariate Approach", is in preparation for the same publisher.

John's research the past four years has been in the area of personal and group values. A report of his recently completed nationwide study of the values, beliefs and ideals of American college students appears in the September issue of the Colorado Journal of Educational Research. The article is co-authored by three graduate students who completed Ph.D. dissertations from the research. A parallel study of the values, beliefs, and ideals of American seminary students was also completed and publishers (both book and journal article) are being sought. The results of these studies should be of interest to ASA members as they deal with basic beliefs of the students. (Address: 1516 University Drive, Manhattan, Kansas 66502).
