What is the purpose and scope of the "So­ciety for the Study of Deluge Geology and Related Sciences," and its official organ, the Bulletin of the Deluge Geology? And what is its value and relationship to our workers gen­erally?

The Deluge Society was formed on the Pa­cific Coast, some three or four years ago, by a group of brethren having a burden for the study of the evidence for creation and the flood as found in the various sciences. Pro­fessor George McCready Price agreed to "father" the project as much as his age and health would permit. Much valuable material is presented before this group in its periodic meetings, and it is this material which to date has served as a supply for articles appearing in the Bulletin. (Editorial Office: 219 North Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, California.)

Some of the material presented in our meet­ings has popular appeal, but is without value for publication. We recognize full well the lack of critical analysis in some of the subjects presented. But we are trying to see that such as is published has real merit and is based upon solid, scientific fact. The papers coming to our hands are read by three or four careful men who criticize the source material, the logic, and the construction of the papers. If the author is willing to accept the criticisms, we then consider the article available for publication.

While I happen this year to be president of the local society, my chief interest is in the Bulletin, for this is the real kernel of our effort. Our purpose in this Bulletin is to pre­sent in readable and understandable form the essential bases of truth in some of these scien­tific matters which pertain to the Scriptures.

It is my belief that the Bulletin should serve as a source of material for our evangelists and Bible workers. But of even greater im­portance is the usefulness of the Bulletin as missionary reading for educated people. Often­times the Bible worker may not know the "language" of science, but she can lend a copy of the Bulletin, with pertinent material on any subject, to skeptical but interested persons. Some of our doctors have found this use of the Bulletin very much worthwhile.

It is our plan to use material from other sources than that of the local society. We have asked some of our progressive science teachers to undertake reviews in some of the important basic fields of science which are of fundamental interest to us. So, in one sense, the local Deluge Society is but a sounding board for a larger and more critical group of workers who will contribute to the Bulletin from time to time.
