The women's division of the contest, which is an annual affair, was held in the city hall of Forest Grove at 12:00 o'clock noon.

The title of her speech was "Sticking to Culture". The contestant from Linfield college placed first in that division, while the girls from Willamette university and Pacific university held second and third places, respectively. The Forest Hills Country club was the scene of the men's division of the contest. It was held during the dinner hour, beginning at six o'clock. "American Busybodies" was the topic for the men. Kenneth Magee, also a freshman, spoke on "Polling Busybodies". First place honors for the men went to the representative from the University of Oregon. Linfield and Lewis and Clark colleges placed second and third.

Eternity Is Theme Of Junior Party Members of the junior class held an "Eternity Party" Saturday evening, January 14, in the college dining hall. Following the "Eternity" theme, the doors were closed promptly at 7:30, while favors of small Bibles made from match boxes were given. Under the direction of Martha Lemmons, class social chairman, the party included several games, devotions and refreshments. Norma Dillon was in charge of refreshments, while Wayne Piersall and Louise Price led the devotional period. The feeling was expressed that the party did much to establish class unity and fellowship.

'New Fields to Cha llenge Us'
foreign mission field particularly, nevertheless there are new fields right here at home—at George Fox college—that are challenging us for this coming year. There are new fields which lie ahead, new things to be conquered, for George Fox college for the year 1950. First there is the field of accreditation. We of course cannot get out and fight literally, as Webster defines the word "challenge", for that goal, but we can do our part
financial challenge that is before us. We as students cannot endow the school with the necessary funds, but we can resort to the Christian's methods of fighting a duel—prayer. In these and other visions which lie before us for this year, we would constantly keep the word "challenge" before us and remember that the accompanying word in this Christian fight is "prayer". —B.M.S.
Thoughts on the College Motto Without looking, can you tell what the motto of George Fox college is? You see it wherever the college seal appears, as it does on the front page of this paper, and doubtless when we tell you you will recognize it at once. However, have you ever thought of the real meaning behind "Christianity and Culture". Perhaps you have thought of it, but considered there was little or no connection between the two. Culture you define as "That highbrow stuff like concerts, operas and Boston society". True, this may be contained in one meaning of the term, but it most certainly is not an all-inclusive description. Culture as Webster puts it is "The enlightenment and refinement of taste acquired by intellectual and aesthetic training." In simpler terms, culture means the developing of good taste, social ease and tact. College is an excellent place to develop these traits to a high degree. And, merely because this is a small school where we all know one another, there is no excuse for lacking manners, tact, and other cultural attributes. Good table manners are an •example. Regular hurried meals in the dining hall may not inspire attention to detail
in etiquette, yet the common usage of correct ways leads to unconscious acceptation of them, thus giving poise and social ease when the need arises for all of us when a banquet, formal reception or tea is given or even a regular dinner with important company. This is but one phase of culture such as we should strive for, but the same principle applies to the other phases as well. However, yet a n o t h e r thought rises when considering the school motto. Christionity AND Culture—the two together should be considered. Is culture an important part of Christianity? We feel it is. Certainly it is not essential to salvation, but when we try to show others of our convincement we need to make ourselves and our beliefs as attractive as possible. Those in the world are most likely to be attracted by Christianity coupled with culture. The motto of George Fox college is an excellent one. We as individuals would do well to adopt it for our own, and develop culture with our Christianity. Most certainly, while we are a part of the institution, let's let its motto challenge us. —M.S.
Have You Known Your Life Away? By Louise Fivecoat A little black boy gazed questionably at a sign stabbed into a huge ripe watermelon in a store window. If you can eat this watermelon you may take one home just like it. Free! The idea of a free watermelon appealed to his colored nature. Wheeling from the spot he ran silently away and was gone for some time. When he came back he marched proudly up to the storekeeper and announced that he had come to acquire the free watermelon. "Do you think you can eat this other one?" the store keeper quizzed, doubtfully. "Oh, yes." replied the boy earnestly. "You see, I just ment home and ate one the same size to see if I could." Even as preposterous as this story seems, some of us around George Fox College campus, ait trying to take the name of Christ without Christ himself. There is not a life in the world, if lived to maturity, that will not see pain, sorrow, grief, disappointment, misunderstanding. In the words of a well-known preacher, "if you are going to suffer anyway which is inevitable, in this life, why not do it for a cause that is worthwhile? Why not throw your life away for Christ and the saving of lost souls as to burn it on the brushpileof unhappiness ?" It makes good sense to realize life will have pain no matter how you live it, so make your unpleasantness count for something for God And remember, that YOU can be a power for God,—IF YOU CARE!
Girls' Team Wins Game With Faculty Matched against the faculty ladies' team,- the GFC girls' basketball six came out on top of the game played on Friday afternoon, January 13, with the score being 24-21.

doesn't mind too much! After all of the material is typed and sent to the printer, she must just watt until the proofs are returned to be corrected. Problems are once again to be faced! She and her staff carefully read the proof to make certain that there are no errors. Confident that all is well, dear editor, who is tired of papers in general by this time of Crescent week, picks up the completed issue to only discover to her horror that there is a drastic mistake in spelling right in the main headline on page one! Oh well! Perhaps no one will read the paper this time and so the error will never be discovered. Even though making page plans, arranging the dummy, writing headlines, and correcting proof does get annoying and monotonous at times, Margaret Shattuck, Crescent editor, enjoys her work and does it cheerfully. Her talents in the journalistic field help to advertise George (Fox college through the medium of the press in a most •pleasing manner. This article concludes the series of "Life with " stories. There are those on t,he campus who have ^positions of responsibility about which no article has been written. However, though not mentioned publicly, their devotion and loyalty to their job is appreciated deeply by all who are concerned.
Crescent Mailbox Prayer Meeting Night Dear Editor, As a student of George Fox college I would like to share this thought with the rest of the students and faculty. That is. why is the library kept open on prayer meeting nights and closed when there is a game ? The library could he open an hour before and closed during the meeting and open afterwards until its regular hour. One hour of the doors closed, might mean one more soul won for Christ. Which is the most important, going to the ball games and having fun or going to learn new truths and to be In the presence of our Lord? I have nothing against going to ball games and having the library closed, it is fair to the players; but is it fair to Christ to have it open on His nights, when, i£ closed, there might be some soul wbn for Him? Since this is a Christian college, I believe that each one of us should be concerned about this and should do the thing that will make our school grow farther spiritually. An Interested Student
Good Sportsmanship Dear Editor, During the half of a recent G.F. C. basketball game, I overheard a rooter from the opposing team remark to a friend, "I've moved to this section because I didn't like the remarks that were being mad e about our team" (by the G.F.C. students.) It is not uncommon to hear G. F. C. students boo the referee even when he's called fouls actually commjtteed by our team. When the referee does make some bad decisions against our team, if we were good sports we wouldn't boo, even though it may cost us the game. In fact, this is where the real test of good sportsmanship is shown. In my four years at the local high school, which makes no profession of being Christian, the students were penalized if caught booing. I think it's bad when a Christian college doesn't have as good a reputation. Which is more important? A win, or the reputation of good sportsmanship for our college? There isn't much point in having intercollegiate games in a Christian college if they fail to build good sportsmanship, not only in the team, but in the rooters. We like athletics; let's make them worthwhile! Yours for good sportsmanship, Janet Hinshaw
The editor is always telling me to have more humor in this column. Just having a column like this in any paper is pretty funny I think. I am afraid there are a number of students at school who are becoming maladjusted because they don't get up for breakfast. To remedy that I think the counselors should bring them their breakfast in bed. *

Attic Snooper Discovers Tired Towel, Old Hots, Conversation Course, Shells By Betty May Street Attics are interesting! My, but Kanyon Hall reveals a lot to interested snoopers. Want to take a trip around the attic with me? Over here, just to th e left of the stairs is the hole where Johnny Williams fell through into the room of Wilson and Haldy. However, it seems to be patched (the hole, that is) at this time. Here's a box that has some empty boxes in it, and also what appears to be the remains of a tennis shoe, which must have seen a lot of wear in its day. There's also a tired towel which perched itself on an empty box and died. It's still a pleasant pink color, though. This old dusty suitcase is locked. I wonder why! Probably it contain's someone's secret treasure Right beside it is an old hat that looks like it has been breakfast for the mice family for several mornV ings. This pair of old football pads, the variety that Abraham Lincoln must have used, seems to be resting on a box containing much coronet music and one slightly discolored walnut. (Just a minute—I'll b e right back! I must go see where the fire engines are going!) There wasn't any fire after all! Where were we? Oh, yes! What's this sieve-like affair? Dear, dear! It looks like an old dark blue felt purse that's now a home for delinquent moths. Wait! There's something else in here. Oh, it's just a pair of pumpkin colored slacks, -wrinkled but still usable. Behind this box of hand-me-down clothes, is an old radio, one of the first to

I hadn't realized that this attic was an extension of the biology department. Here's a iplcture of someone I've never seen before. It must be Beverly, though, because on the bo', torn it says "Love, Beverly." Probably some one knows her. This Is an interesting lookii box. It must have been a candy box during its earlier days because it does say "Chocolates" on the cover. I wonder what's In it now. Let's look! Oh, my—herein is contained the Ethel Cotton Course in Conversation in twelve lovely red bound volumes. We quiet Kanyon girls will now be taking lessons on the art of making conversation. Here's another suitcase that looks quite old and worn-out. It probably belongs to someone who went here a long time ago. and they just haven't come back to claim it yet. Let's look at the name tag on the handle—This belongs to Betty May—hey! That's my suitcase! Perhaps we'd better go back downstairs before we fall through into someone's room! Brush the cobwebs and spiders out of your hair and let's go! Don't guess until you have done everything to make your guess as nearly right as possible. —B. C. Forbes

George Fox Cagers vime Quakers Edge Multnomah In League Opener Meet Dental School In Conference Play OtU . . . With Waldo Haworth
Successfully holding back a determined last-minute rally put on 'by the Multnomah basketeers, the local Quaker quintet flashed to a thrilling 53-50 hard-won victory in Hester Memorial Gym as Metropolitan conference play opened. The Balesmen, although leading by as much as 12 points midway in the third quarter, were forced to go all out in the waning minutes to put down the visiting Portland team's drive. The Quakers were leading 49-36 with but 8 minutes remaining in the game when the visitors suddenly caught fire and began tossing buckets all over the floor. Bob Jewell, slim Multnomah forward, shoved several through the net from in close and teammate Jim Cunningham hit four long ones to spark their teams rally. During this desperate last ditch drive the Portlanders were able to hold the locals scoreless and when Jewell hit for two from the side, the defending-conference champs took over a 49-49 lead with three minutes left. This lead was short-lived however as Guard Waldo Haworth shoved in a cripple shot and the Quakers led again, 49-50. With a screaming, yelling, partisan crowd raising the rafters, Bob Armstrong, veteran forward, then connected with a jump shot and the locals moved ahead, 52-49. As the new two-minute ruling went into effect, Coach Bales' five lost several chances of icing the contest by missing free throws. The anxious Multnomah crew, eager to regain their lead, began fouling right and left but only Center Bill Wilson was able to connect from the charity ribbon. Guard Jerry Lemmons missed one and Wilson missed two other that would have sewed up the game. As it was, however, the George Fox stalling tactics were successful as the only score the Portlanders could get was one gift toss by Al Tuttle, the big colored center. As the final gun sounded the locals had control of the ball and were leading 53-50. Jewell and Cunningham had 17 counters each to lead their team while Haworth was the game's high scorer with 22 points. Smith and Armstrong both added 11 points to the Quaker total.
More about basketball rules: Two new versions of how the game of basketball should be played were tried this week in Eugene where a double header was played last Tuesday night. Competing teams included the University of Oregon Junoir "Varsity against Oregon College of Education a n d Oregon Waldo Haworth t h e Sports Editor freshman played> an independent team, the Oregon Lumber Sales quintet from Eugene. In the first game between the Oregon Frosh and the independent team the game was played according to rules set up by Bob Burnett, assistant basketball coach at Stanford university. According to his rules there will be no limit on personal fouls committed by an individual player, but each team will be allowed only 15 personals. After that number is reached the offending squad will be given a bonus free throw for every infraction. The second contest was played using the system of Bob Knox of OCE which uses the maximum point system rather than a time limit as per usual. In this system the. first team to score 60 points wins the game. Halftime is called when one team reaches 25 points. In the first game, the Oregon Frosh whipped their opponents 7153. There was a total of only 33 fouls jn the game and the Frosh never reached the 15 limit, having only 13. In the second game the Oregon reserves beat OCE 61 to 46. Th game took 33 minutes and one second to complete. In the initial contest the rules are arranged so as to do away with the heavy fouling during the game. Whether it is successful or not is debatable. But the second set of rules (that of a scoring limit) will certainly do away with the outlandish scores of some of the college games.

Western States Quintet Trims Locals 43-38 in Slow Conference Tussle
A traveling squad of Quakers from George Fox college were as cold as the weather outside January 13 in Portland as the Western States college quintet trimmed the locals 3 6-43 in a slow conference basketball game. The loss left the Bales-coached squad from Newberg with an even split in Metropolitan league play thus far having previously defeated Multnomah college. The Quakers led by forward Clair Smith, managed to maintain a small lead during the first half and led at the intermission 23-20. The second half was a different
GFC Five Bows to Spencer Motor Five Forward LaVaughn Frantz sank 14 points to lead a Spencer Motor Company basketball team of Hillsboro to a 45-38 victory over a fighting George Fox college team here January 10. Although never behind very far until the closing portion of the tilt, the Quakers could never get together in a hot streak enough to catch the AAU team. Score at halftime stood 20-17 for the visitors. Getting off to a fast start the quintet from Newberg held the lead during the first four minutes of play. The lead then changed hands six times before the Spencer team capitalized on a one-point lead which was theirs following Frantz's long one from the corner. From then on the partisan crowd never saw their team in the lead.

story as the Portlanders took over. A small gym and the habitual inability to cash in on gift tosses were definite factors in the defeat of the Balesmen. Only four free throws were made out of the 22 attempted for a very poor .181 average. The winners got 7 out of 19 attempts. Max Call, a lanky forward, was another reason for the local loss. A good floor man and splendid on the boards, he also led his team's offensive with 14 points. Following the first 20 minutes of play the Balesmen lost their slim lead and went far back of the hot WSC team. The locals managed to pick up only 15 points in the second half and Smith had over half of them. When the Quakers saw the time was running out a belated rally was started but the two-minute ruling soon came into effect and the game ended with the locals trying to break through the stall of the Portlanders. Smith ended up with seven field goals and a lone free throw for 15 points and the game's high scorer. Call had 14 for the winners.
Tomorrow night both the varsity squad and Coach Bud Mardock's undefeated JV team travel to Monmouth where the varsity battles with the Oregon College of Education Junior Varsity and Mardock's outfit is pitted against an intramural quintet from OCE.
