Linfield Entry State Forensic Contest Winner "American Optimism," Theme Discussed in After-Dinner Speaking Contest Jack M. Baker of Linfield college won first place In the fourth annual After Dinner Speaking Contest of the Intercollegiate Forensic Association of Oregon, which was held in t h e Newberg Friends church, December 8. Mr. Baker's subject, a subtoplc to the general heading, "American Optimism," was, "Those Great Fundamental, Unshaken Values." During his speech he said that "few of the really fundamental things of life have been affected by the depression," and "most of the things that were swept entirely away were superficial." For that reason, he said he believed that the spirit of American Optimism at the present time is not only justifiable but very desirable and necessary for speedy recovery. Oregon State College, represented by George Robertson, speaking on the subject, "Everything's O. K.," won second place. He showed that such indiscriminate optimism is far from desirable and t h a t American optimism should not be substituted for active opposition to vicious forces "working to undermine politics and religions, two of the most won(Continued on page six)

Forget your indifferences, selfishness, greed, Peace on earth, good will to men heed; With trueness of heart, ask the Savior above To make this Yuletide one filled with true love.

Student Body Play "The Tinker" Wins Audience's Praise Performance Will Be Repeated Tuesday Night for Ladies Auxiliary Benefit "The Tinker," a three act play of the Christmas season, by Fred Eastman, was presented by the student body of Pacific college on Saturday evening, December 9, to a well filled house, and in response to many requests will be repeated a t "Wood-Mar Hall on Tuesday evening, December 18, as a benefit for the Woman's Auxiliary of Pacific college. The title role was played by Ernest Pearson who, as the Tinker, entered the troubled home of the Whitney family at the beginning of the holiday season and finding that they, like the grandfather Clock he had come to repair, had to be taken apart before they could be put together again, he contrived it all, bringing to them the true spirit of love and Christmas giving as he made the old clock run again. His quaint speeches were full of homely philosophy and a loving concern for the people who had forgotton family and friendship and kindness in their mad quest for money and social success, and in his gentle way he brought a broader vision not only to the Whitneys but to his audience as well.

If, by any chance, you are summoned before this sage group, by all means make your appearance or else—you may be sorry!

COMING FORENSIC CONTESTS With the completion of the After Dinner Speaking contest, there remain three more forensic events this year in which students with any public speaking or oratory aspirations should be Interested. There is, first, the Extemporaneous Speaking contest. In this contest t h e general toplm and several sub-topics are given in advance so that preparation may be made. Then three hours before the contest each entry draws a topic and in the time prepares his speech. Then there is the State "Old Line" contest in which any subject may be used. The only restriction is that it be not over 16 minutes in length or approximately 1600 words. Probably the most Important contest In respect to the reward received for the work is the Peace contest. This speech should not be over 15 minutes in length and must definitely deal with •the problem of Peace and how Peace may be accomplished. In this contest there are prizes of $26, $15 and $5 awarded each school's three highest contestants, provided there are six or more in the competition. Anyone interested In these contests should start to work soon, and there is no better time than the Christmas holidays. Speeches of the nature of those to be used in these contests cannot be prepared over night but require a good deal of time and careful preparation. Although it is over a month till the first contest, it will pay to get going on the speaches right away.

In her explanation Miss Leonard says, "I wrote this just a s simple mindedly a s I could—one would have to be simple minded to write to Dorothy Dix." Dear Dorothy Dix: I am a girl of eighteen years. I am reasonably good looking, have several accomplishments and am considered a good pal. Here is my trouble. I am in love. The object of my affection is a young man of twenty-five. He Is extremely charming, good looking and agreeable. He says he loves me and we a r e happy, at times. It Is wonderful when h e is around, but how can I keep him around enough?

PEERING AT PACIFIC (By the brother of the "Gentleman a t the keyhole") The old soak—Pardon me, I meant sage of Pacific, observed this notice on the bulletin board: "Students Are Assigned as Follows to Members of the Pacific College Faculty as Their Faculty Advisors." Well, now, it sure looks like we was havin' a new deal. It took the members of the P . C. faculty a mighty long time before they'd admit that they needed us as their faculty advisors, but now that the die is cracked, I'll bet we can be of a lot of help t o them. The main trouble with faculty advisors is, usually, that the faculty won't take their advice, but, now they're going to take It and like it. This proves to me that Pacific is right up to the minute. We hope there will be NO REFUSAL of Advice. When it comes to grades, u s scatterbrains have known for a long time that "we're due our part." This assignment kinda segregates the sexes, though, I suppose the faculty had just admitted that a woman's advise ain't worth takln' by a man, and probably vlcy versey too. Now t h a t prohibition has been repealed, I suppose the faculty feels they is goin' to be needing some extra moral support. That's the only kind any of us kin provide anyway. If this idea works, good times are sure to come back, our grades will ba Inflated, and t h e faculty will become a regular brain trust;—that is, If they just take note of everything new they see on the test papers. Yes, sir, they'd sure learn a lot. This is just a little gift 'in our sock, but we're glad they're turnin' over a new leaf. Selah. There is no one who knows quite so much about how a thing should be done as the fellow who doesn't know anything about It. The less a man knows about a matter, the more free he is with his advice. What silly people they are who spend money they have not yet earned on things they don't need to impress people they don't like.

BASKETBALL SQUAD IN PRACTICE GAMES SHOWS IMPROVEMENT Pacific college may not have the best basketball team in the history of the school this year, but It will have one of the youngest. Seven out of the ten men reporting daily to Coach Emmett Gulley are freshmen. Two juniors and a senior complete the roster. The lone senior on the squad is Carl Sandoz, now playing his fourth year for t h e Quakers. Eugene Coffin and Elwood Egelston are the duo of juniors. The rooks Include Jodie Eggers, Ralph Scarborough, Louie Sandoz, Herald Welch, Allen Hadley, Ned Greene and Delmer Putnam. An entire team of rooks started the opening practice game of the season here against Linfleld college December 8. The Wildcats won 42 to 28, but the first year men showed promise of bright things for the future. The Quakers missed shot after shot in t h e first period, but the Wildcats were equally eratic and the session ended even Stephen at 6 to 6. A couple of Henry Lever's younger stars, Brown and Harrington, regained their eyesight In the second stanza and Linfleld grabbed an 18 to 8 lead. In the third period the Wildcats sang the bell five times for 10 points before Pacific could find the range. The Quakers rallied brilliantly in the last 15 minutes of play, but the big Linfleld lead was too large to overcome. Brown led both teams in scoring with 14 points. Roy Helser, a teammate, garnered four field goals for eight counters. The Sandoz brothers paced Pacific in scoring, but Allen Hadley played a splendid floor game. The Quakers looked pretty ragged against the Newberg Townies Tuesday night, although they swamped Joe Wilson's brigade of hoopsters 56 to 32. Pacific ran the poorly conditioned Townies off their feet in a second half outburst that gave the Quakers a commanding lead. Joe Wilson and Dot Wohlgemuth starred for t h e losers. Pacific played its best basketball of t h e season at McMinnville Thursday night, but lost to a strong Linfleld college five 82 to 28. A desperate last quarter rally by the Quakers fell two baskets short of tying the score. Coach Gulley's men missed enough cripple shots in the first half to win a dozen ball games, while Arnol Neely, Phil Brostrom and Paul Durham, the three aces of Henry Lever's smooth working combination, were potting long and short shots from all over the court. The halt time score favored Linfleld, 18 to 9, and the Wildcats increased t h e lead to 28-14 as the third session collapsed. Durham and Neely did not play in the second half. However, In the final heat the Blue and Gold staged one of their now famous last minute do or die rallies and almost closed the gap before the game ended. The Quakers showed a decided improvement in their defensive play and ball handling against Linfleld, but how those boys did manage to elude the basket! Coach Gulley believes that this deficiency can be remedied by more practice. Be loyal to your school and buy "Pacific College" stickers. I t pays to advertise.

PLANNED MISTJLE-TOE HUNT ENDS IN GAMES AND FUN AT WOMEN'S DORMITORY (Ruth Wilde) Although hearsay has it that the inhabitants of Oregon are equipped with webb feet, the twenty-four students that assembled at the girls' dorm Sunday afternoon for the scheduled hike were Inclined to .think that webb feet were not quite adequate equipment for a storm of that nature and gladly stepped into the gaily decorated parlors of Canyon Hall rather than to set forth in search of dripping evergreens and mistle-toe. There were three, however—yes, three brave souls who ventures forth into the teeth of the storm, that Pacific might not suffer the humiliation of a mistle-toeless Christmas. And to these three. Garnet Guild, Elizabeth Aebischer and Una Hicks, we bow low in gratitude. But If you think that a little bit of rain dampened the spirit of the day, you are all wrong. Once the heavy door shut them away from the raging elements the disappointed hikers gave no more thought to the misfortunes of the weather, but started indoor activities, with a group of high bidding Rook players at one table, a crowd engaged at anagrams and checkers at another, and a band of supple young ladies in the center of the room (down on all fours) attempting to roll three little balls onto a game board. This sort of parties may not seem very thrilling to the outsider, but the"y are lots of fun and we sincerely hope that the whispers we heard concerning another such party were not just idle plans, but will soon materialize and that those delicious refreshments will hold out till another time. MX FIRST ROMANCE (If you want to find who wrote this, ask your friends. They may not know either. If everyone were as observing of his own conduct as the author of this story is, what a world it would be!) My first romance struck me like a thunder-bolt and passed off like a recuperation from the measles. Sally's folks moved into the empty house across the street, and the second day afterward I was desperately in, love with their daughter. I got a job from them to mow their lawn, and spent most of the time in the back yard where Sally spent the same amount of time taking care of a few flowers. I don't see how I was able to land that job, for I had never mowed a lawn in my life before. Perhaps Sally did a little "electioneering" for me. Before I knew Sally, I looked with disgust on those whom I saw courting. Whenever I saw a couple walking down the street, anger would well up within me, and I would "thank my lucky stars" that I was able to control myself, and I knew better than to display myself in such an unsightly manner. But when she came into my life, everything was changed. Everything seemed to favor her and me; the birds sang for us alone, the flowers bloomed for us alone. The rest of the people were unimportant, they didn't need flowers to look at, nor birds to sing, nor stars to look at, nor beautiful paths to walk on. Especially appealing to me were Sally's beautiful blond curls. They hung around her head in a fashion suggesting an angel, if you can picture an angel with curls. Then her soft eyes just drew me to her, and my love for her rivalled a negro's love for watermelon. We were very happy for a long time, in fact, we were fanatically devoted to each other. I saw where I had made a mistake about girls. They were not such bad characters after all, but very
