"Send us Wood: Back in the 16th century, John Calvin's "College-University" in Geneva had 1500 students. Yet the school could supply but 1/10 of the ministers the world demanded. Calvin had to write everywhere..."Send us wood, and we shall make arrows!" Pictured above is Dr. J. Oliver Buswell, known affectionately as "Uncle Buz" on the campus of Covenant College and Theological Seminary. He has had a hand in training many ministers of the Gospel for a needy world, and is still at the work. He does not use the big saw on the seminarians, but keep in physical trim with it, brightening the campus with its keen edge, his sunny smile and a keen mind that sharpens the "arrows" in the classroom."
