Among the usual general education courses offered, Sterling College's interterm session had one notably, yet unusual, class offered this year.

The course, taught by Assistant Professor of Mathematics Daniel Callahan, involved screening movies that held topics such as the atomic age, atom bombs and missiles and the threat of imminent nuclear holocaust.

In 1946, the president of Westminster College sent an invitation to Winston Churchill via Harry Truman, asking him to make an appearance in Fulton, MO. Churchill not only accepted the invitation, but travelling by train along with President Harry Truman, he rode a train across the United States to reach the College. It was at that time and at that location that Churchill delivered perhaps his greatest oration, the "Iron Curtain" speech. The SC Debate team recreated the same trek, albeit by automobile, in accepting an invitation to appear and compete in a debate tournament to honor the legacy of Winston Churchill and his historic address 64 years ago.
