Did Jesus intend to form a new and distinct

institution created by the early Christian
community in order to preserve its life? Dr.

Jesus to discover the answer, and leads the
reader through a careful Biblical study to
learn the meager expectations which Jesus
envisaged for a church built chiefly with

is the author of a recently published booklet,
Some Observations of Education in the

It is based on the author's first-hand obser-
vation of Soviet schools in action during a
tour of school administrators during the
month of October, 1959.

"We cannot escape the conclusion," states
Salisbury, "that tremendous strides have been
made in the area of public education in the
Soviet Union since the days of the Revolution.
At the time of the Revolution we found an
educational system that was designed to give
special attention to the children of upper-
class families only. Illiteracy was extremely
high, even as late as 1920. The literacy rate
now is extremely high, and we have seen this
shift of educational opportunity especially
within the past generation. While we may
disagree with the objective of public educa-
tion in the Soviet Union, we cannot escape the
fact that tremendous strides have been made,"

Founders Robert Alfred McFarland (left) and
William Lazell Phillips at the 1951 Conclave.
Uncle Billy died at Richmond June 20, 1956.

Members of Sigma Phi Epsilon mourn the loss
of the ninth Founder to pass into the Chapter
Eternal — Robert Alfred McFarland, well-known
Baptist minister, who died at the Cherokee Me-
morial Hospital, Gaffney, S.C., on March 14.
Funeral services were conducted on March 16 in
Gaffney at the First Baptist Church with burial
in Oakland Cemetery.

Brother McFarland served as president of the
North Carolina State Baptist Convention and of
the Virginia Southern Baptist Convention. He was
also vice-president of the North Carolina Conven-
tion and president of the Anti-Saloon League of
South Carolina, general board chairman of the
Virginia State Baptist Convention and a member
of the Crustbreakers, Rotary International, and
the Masons. He was listed in Who^s Who in
America for 28 years.

Brother McFarland was born near Oxford,
Granville County, N.C., on January 31. 1876, to
Simeon DeWitt and Frances Sherman McFarland.
He received his early education in Granville
County schools and spent three years at the Bethel
Hill Institute before entering Richmond College.

He was graduated from Richmond College with
a bachelor of science degree in 1902. During
Sigma Phi Epsilon's first year, his only year as a


student member, he helped the new organization's
financial position by selling his bicycle.

He was married on June 3, 1903, to Lula Mae
Bass of Halifax County, Va. Three children were
born of this marriage, all of whom survive. Mrs.
McFarland preceded him in death.

In 1908 he received his Bachelor of Theology
degree from the Southern Baptist Theological
Seminary in Louisville, Ky. In 1921 he received
the honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from the
University of Richmond.

During his active pastorate. Brother McFarland

burg, Va. ; Scotland Neck, N.C., and Gaffney and
Rock Hill, S.C. He was also college pastor of
Honacker College in Virginia. Following his re-
tirement, he was interim pastor of the First Bap-
tist Church in Monroe, N.C., and a number of
churches in Virginia and South Carolina.

"McFarland moved that we found a new fra-
ternity." Writing not long ago about the early
days of Sigma Phi Epsilon, the now departed
Founder recalled in these words his important role
in the Fraternity's early history. Later that same
October day in 1901, he was appointed chairman
of a committee to write a constitution for the new
