Students to Give 'Esther7 Cantata March 3 1 , April 1 Ushering in the Easter season will be the production of the sacred musical drama, "Esther", on Friday and Saturday nights, March 31 and April 1. This entirely new feature is to be given in the George Fox college auditorium by the combined music and dramatics department of the college. A Wurlitzer organ, furnished by the Wurlitzer company in Portland for the production will help to make this a highlight of the year, with Barbara Sill as accompanist. Roy Clark, head of the music department and conductor of the acappella choir is to be the director of the musical score with Lucy Clark as producer and stage director. Helen Willcuts is in charge of the costumes and Kenneth Magee is stage designer. The part of Esther, the queen, is portrayed by Priscilla Doble; Ahasuerus, the king, by Harold Antrim; Nordecai, Esther's cousin, Klane Robison; Haman, the king's counsellor and overseer of the realm, Wayne Piersall; and Zeresh, Haman's wife, Carol Olson.

Also in the cast will be the Persians, Jews, pages, guards, and maids of honor. Altogether the number in the cast totals around forty. This sacred musical drama is an accurate portrayal of the account as found in the book of Esther. All parts will be sung, with authentic costuming to provide added atmosphere for the occasion. The production includes drama, pathos, tragedy and triumph. When Esther, a Jewess, became Queen of Persia, Haman made a decree that all the Jews were to be killed. Through Easter's interces-

Juniors Present Program Tonight The junior class is promising, "foolish frolickings", in other words a whole evening of rip-roaring entertainment tonight, March 17, in Wood-Mar auditorium. Louise Fivecoat, Gene Hockett and Norman Dillon—the committee—are reticent about announcing the unique and surprising admission. The cat is still in the bag about it, so come and find out what it is as well as enjoy the evening of splendid entertainment. At intermission there will be candy, popcorn .peanuts and gum. Venders will be prominading the isles of the crowd. The purpose of this fun night is to raise money for the magnificent banquet which is now being planned for the "upper crust"—seniors. The program for the evening promises to be quite original, and each is promised a marvelous time, (according to the committee). Beginning time is set for 7:30 p. m. sion with the king and by the providence of God, Mordecai was exalted, but Haman was hanged on the gallows which he had prepared for his enemy, and the Jews were delivered. An intensive schedule of practice is planned for the cast for the next two weeks. This five-act sacred music drama will be given at 8 o'clock both Friday and Saturday nights, with tickets to be sold at the door. The admission price is 35 cents for children, 55 cents for students, and 75 cents for adults, including tax.


'Quaker Singers Finish First Trip; Puget Sound Tour Termed Successful Last Friday afternoon the choir finished preparations for the concert trip to Washington. Unfortunately a last minute delay occured when it was found that the bus was unable to transport passengers. Therefore s e p a r a t e groups went by car. Kelso was the first concert appearance. Here the choir sang at Rose Valley Friends, Friday, March 10. The next night, Saturday, they appeared at Youth for Christ in Tacoma. Washington. Sunday morning they were the guests of the Seattle Friends and that night appeared in Bremerton at the First Presbyterian church. During the trip the choir gave seven concerts along the 500 to 600 mile route travelled. Approximately 2000 people gathered to hear them. These concerts usually lasted from an hour and twenty minutes to an hour and a half. Audiences were very responsive and greatly appreciated the singing group of GFC. Roy Clark, director, attributed the successful tour to two things: the spiritual responsibility accepted by the students on the trip, and the revival going among the churches. The students reported receiving

entertainment and warm hospitality at the homes of the church members. Prof. Clark expressed his satisfaction when he stated, "This is one of the best choir trips that I have had in my nine years of experience."

Milo Ross to Hold ASB Major Officers to Be Elected; Services This Week Milo Ross, pastor of Seattle Monthly Meeting of Friends, will be guest speaker at three special services next week, at which time he will deliver a series of three sermons on the topic of dynamic Quakerism.

Mr. Ross has written a book ont he subject of Church Extension, which was published by the publication board of yearly meeting. Also, articles which he has written have appeared in recent issues of the Northwest Friend. Mr. Ross is vice-president of the executive committee and assistant clerk of the yearly meeting.

Chapel Speakers Present Outstanding Program Recently George Fox college students and faculty have been privileged to hear five outstanding chapel speakers during the past two weeks. Appearing in chapel on Monday, March 6, was Paul Shen, a Chinese minister from Formosa where he has been pastor for a number of years. He recently came to the United States for specialized study and is now attending the Western School of Evangelical Religion at Jennings Lodge. Rev. Shen preached a stirring message based on Exorus 3:1-6. Henry John, the son of a Brahman priest in India, was guest speaker on Wednesday, March 8. He described conditions existing in India at the present time—the caste system, the unprogressiveness, and the need of ministers, as there is approximately only one minister to every 75,000 Indians. Even though his father was a

Brahman priest, Henry John wasn't satisfied and sought an experience that would bring peace to his soul. He found this'experience in Christ and accepted Christianity at the age of 15. He came to the United States not long ago, and at the present is a student at Cascade college. He anticipates returning to his native country and preach and also to help in the improvement of agricultural conditions. Pretty, dark-eyed, dark-haired, nine-year-old girl. Renne Martz, a child evangelist, was Friday's chapel speaker. With her were her father, Rev. Jack Martz, himself an evangelist, her mother, Esther, and Renne's tutor, Miss Ruby May James from Hong Kong, who once was a child evangelist herself. Renne received the call to preach when she was four, began preaching at the age of six and has been

Harry Vom Bruch from Long Beach, California, was the chapel speaker for Monday, March 13. Mr. Vom Bruch is a song book publisher, now on tour for Youth for Christ, of which he stated: "Christ needs the youth and the youth need Christ." He introduced to the audience, two new Gospel choruses, namely, "Knock at My Neighbor's Door" and "Under the Blood".

Biologists Start New Campus Club The newly formed Biology club has practically completed ifs organization in the first two meetings and has readied itself for future activities. Several interesting goals have been set up by its members. They plan for it to be an organization in which young people can meet together and share their ideas and interests in the biological sciences and discuss problems and possibilities in this field. The members plan on becoming better acquainted with local terrain through frequent field trips and to contribute to the growth of the biological collections in the laboratory. Several officers have been elected for the club. Enid Briggs was chosen as field trip chairman; Kenneth Magee, secretary-treasurer; Wesley Naylor, transporation chairman, and Donna Flaugher, the social chairman. A unique procedure is followed in filling the office of president. At each meeting a different member of the club serves as president, according to the alphabetical arrangement of their names. This serves to spread out much of the work involved in the presidency. Betty Adams is the "current" president. The meetings are to be held immediately following lunch every other week on Thursday afternoons. Any person attending one o" the first three meetings is automatically a member. Anyone joining thereafter will be charged a slight fee.

The Freshmen Look Ahead Having been on the George Fox campus for nearly seven months, we, the members of the freshman class now feel that we are a definite part of the college. We know that we were probably hard to understand at first, but there were several changes which we had to make. We are now going to try in every way to help keep the college going and this means more than just attending it. This means that we must keep ourselves in top spiritual condition and also maintain a spirit of cooperation. If we begin to let down in pur spiritual lives the school will soon begin to drag down. Several of us freshmen have agreed that there seems to be

something lacking on our campus. Yes, you guessed it— school spirit. True the seniors may be worn out after four years of tests, experiments, and term papers (one nearly finished me up), but then the s o p h o m o r e s and juniors should be going strong yet. Really all the students should be out to the ball games. You would be surprised how much lift this gives the boys as they play. Now is a good time to begin since baseball is just around the corner. As a freshman class we pledge ourselves to try to help keep up the school spirit and cooperate in maintaining the traditions of our beloved school. —C.C.

Content no matter where I am, Be this my constant epigram. Obeying God where 'er He call, This is my motto, over all. Trusting whatsoever comes to me, This is my aim, all constantly. Abiding, keeping Christ in view, This is the quest I would pursue. Rejoicing in the Lord alway, Be this my purpose, day by day. Awake and watching, till He come, Of my ambitions, this the sum. —(Selected)

Committee Submits SCU Candidates Freshmen List Class Preferences By Norman Berreman In a freshman class poll taken to see which classes rated highest with the students, "Foods class" walked away with the honors with its three freshmen giving it top billing in their schedules. The smaller and more highly specialized classes which are voluntarily chosen came out highest in the poll, the students each favoring their field of interest. The larger classes tend to average out more, due \.o the greater quantity and types of students. In these classes, subject interpretation by teacher and student interest figure strongly. Below is a statistical tabulation in order of rating. Grading was from one to eight, the lowest fig-

Hilarity Keynotes WAA Fun Night Peppy music, popcorn, basketball games, and an enthusiastic crowd were the highlights of the WAA sponsored fun night, which was held Tuesday evening, March 14, in the college gym. First in the line of events was the game between the faculty women and the JV girls, in which the faculty was victorious with the score being 16 to 14. The faculty women, dressed in ridiculous costumes, were Lucy Clark, Mildred Minthoine, Laura Shook, Helen Willcuts, Charlotte Macy, Beth Hockett, and Esther Mae Moor. To add the final touch of humor to the game, George Bales assisted the faculty ladies. The J V s playing were Betty May Street, Bethlin Judd, Florene Price, Gay Foley, Mary Baines, Priscilla Doble, Pat Standley, and Louise Price. The second game found the men's varsity edging the girls' varsity by a one point margin, the score being 10 to 9. The men were handicapped by having to wear decorative hats, which had to be kept on their heads at all times, and having one hand behind them during the entire game. The J V s managed a 20 to 19 win over the faculty men in spite of having to shoot left-handed only. The JV's playing were Mel Booth, Bill Hampton, Harold Magee, Harold Antrim, Fred Comfort, and Leland Brown. Oral Tish, George Bales, Roscoe Knight, Roy Clark, and Howard Royle made up the faculty team. The pep band, organized by Florent Price and directed by Klane Robison, provided entertainment intermittently throughout the evening. WAA members kept the crowd refreshed by selling popcorn, candy, and gum. On behalf of the MAA Clair Smith accepted a gift of $50 from the WAA presented by Gladys Engle, president.

Dinners, Teas Presented By Home Ec. Foods Class On Wednesday, the last in* the series of projects, was given by the Foods class. Included in this group was a tea given February 22 for all the Home Ec. girls and women faculty members. Recently the girls served a breakfast, a formal dinner and a buffet dinner to the members of the faculty. Each girl took turns acting as hostes* or working in the kitchen.

The turkey dinner was held at the George Fox college dining hall with nearly 180 in attendance. Ed Drews, president of the Rotary club, presided at the banquet.

Flying Club1 Grounded1 The Flying club has sold its Aeronca Champion plane to Douglas Schoonover, a freshman, at George Fox college. This action was taken at the final meeting of the club at which time the Flying club was officially discontinued. The club's plane was sold Tuesday, March 14, for $450 because of financial difficulties, lack of college enthusiasm and non support from "dead" members. The Flying club had purchased' it originally from Sam Whitney, the owner of Sportsman Airport at Newberg, Oregon. Considerable repairs were done on it at that time. It was in the club for three years, chalking up many flying hours. Dean Ogelvie, Roy Lawrence, Frank Starkey and Bill Bales,

B y Harold Weesner With the basketball season now a closed book for this year, what otherwise promised to be a brief period of sports inactivity blossomed forth with a Bales backed pingpong tournament and a bit of diversity in the W A A fun night. Thanks for the diversion. Who knows what the geniuses will think up next? * * * From the looks of the baseball turnout, a number of freshmen aspirants may be in line for team positions. It seems a little doubtful that seven of the nine positions will be filled by freshmen, however, as one observer casually remarked the other day. * * -* It seems that coach Bales hasn't run across any promising Lucille Sweeney to strengthen next year's football squad. Don't let that bother you though, somehow our male material doesn't look like that of coach Weepy Jones either. * * * I understand from reliable sources there is a group of students in our midst who have been changing thir dimensions through the famed Bales supporting weight - lifting system. We're lucky the change has been gradual or w e might not have been able to recognize our friends after one of those sessions. It does seem encouraging though; most everyone will admit a bean pole looks better with a little meat on it and a barrel of lard looks better after a bit of streamlining. * * * For those who are new here, coach Barney McGrath, a local business man and owner of the "McGrath Motor Company", has served as baseball coach here for the past several years. McGrath lettered all four years as pitcher while in high school at Barnesville, Minnesota. He broke into college ball his first year at Fargo college and after college entered semiprofessional baseball for the Red Valley league in his home town. At one time McGrath traveled throughout England playing for the Red Cross. He is no novice at the game. * * * Some of the fellows are already throwing a baseball around making a trip across the campus somewhat hazardous in the opinion of a certain professor. * * * From all reports the GF club Grade School Basketball tournament which was held recently may be termed a success. Although the value of such a venture cannot be measured alone in cash value, I understand the sponsors did clear a significant sum. The games seem to have most of the thrills of a college game with a few special ones of their own thrown in beside. * * * Why can't the GFC athletic department have track as a spring activity ? Through the conversation the past year we find that several boys have had track experience and are interested in track. Norm Berreman, from the local high school, ran the mile with a catty 4:45 time.

The fighting Quakerettes have one game to go before winding up their '49-'50 basketball season. They stacked up a total of 251 points in seven varsity and junior varsity games. The Lyda girls came out on top in five of the games, losing the remaining two, to Reed and Marylhurst. Considering everything, it looks like quite a successful season. Holding the title of the varsity six were: Gladys Engle, Louise Fivecoat, and Marjorie Larrance, forwards; Frances Haldy, Margaret Weber, and Enid Briggs, guards. Making up the JV squad were: Betty May Street, Bethlin Judd, and Florene Price, forwards; Gay Foley, Mary Baines, Betty Adams, and Louise Price, guards. Chalking up points for the Quakerettes w a s : Points Gladys Engle 35 Louise Fivecoat 64 Marjorie Larrance 100 Florene Price 8 Betty May Street 6 Bethlin Judd 20 Margaret Weber 18 A vote of thanks goes to the Quakerette captains, Gladys Engle and Betty May Street for their fine leadership and co-operation. The bouquet for the week goes to manager Marynette Smith. She really did a swell job this season and the team certainly appreciates it. Saturday the girls' varsity plays their closing game with Multnomah Bible school here in the George" Fox college gym. Riggs, from Jeffetsott high school, Jefferson, Oregon, could back Berreman up with a 4:51 mile. Keith Hinshaw is able to run a mile at a good clip. Why couldn't one or two of these fellows, with the endurance, quit the mile and run the two mile and half-mile races? This would help to fill up the needed slots in a 14event track team. Howard Harmon clicked off a fifty-three second quarter mile and Marvin Hampton a fifty-six second one in high school. Harold Weesner is interested in sprints. The sprints will help the football players next year, especially the backfield men. The big boys that like to throw their weight around could throw the weights. Coach Bales says, "We're going to have an informal track team if possible." If the fellows with the interest come out and would lend a helping hand our school would have a track and be able to field a track team.
