STORM LAKE, Iowa--Buena Vista College is a sponsor of a 5,000-mile bike 
ride in celebration of Iowa's upcoming 150th anniversary of statehood.  The 
150 Bike Ride/A Sesquicentennial Expedition covers 104 days and takes the 
300 riders across 15 states, from Long Beach, Calif., on Memorial Day 
weekend to the steps of the Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Labor Day, 
where opera and gospel great Simon Estes, a native of Centerville, Iowa, 
will give a free performance as a climax to the ride.  Other sponsors of 
the ride include Jolly Time Popcorn, "Better Homes & Gardens" magazine, the

TUSCALOOSA, Ala.--The Hearst Foundation has awarded a $35,000 grant to 
Stillman College for an endowed scholarship fund.  The award is part of the 
Foundation's plan to give the school $100,000 over a three-year period, it 
was announced by Stillman president Cordell Wynn.  The donation was made 
through the United Negro College Fund Campaign 2000.  Stillman also 
received a donation of $46,000 from the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation of 
Atlanta, Ga., as part of an annual commitment to help disadvantaged female 
students at Stillman. 
MEMPHIS, Tenn.--Professor Milton P. Brown of Rhodes College has written a 
new book, "Biblical Prophets, Seers, and the New Apocalypticism," which 
will be published by the Edwin Mellen Press. The book is one of many 
written about "the last days" but provides an alternative approach to the 
subject, using modern scholarship and encouraging readers to find for 
themselves "the word of truth" in such difficult and misunderstood books as 
Daniel and the Revelation to John.
