Subjects on which Demaray will speak are rare books and first editions, light bits of literature, and the Shakespearian field. The series will be held in Kanyon hall parlor at 7 o'clock each evening, except Wednesday when they will begin at 1:30.

She has recorded scripture passages and simple gospel messages in over 350 languages and dialects. She has made recordings for four tribes that have no written language. Miss Ridderhof has just returned from a 14-month tour with her assistant, Miss Ann Sherwood, in the Philippine Islands. While there she recorded the languages and dialects of many different tribes. The Wycliffe translators have worked in close cooperation with her and have helped her in this work. Colored pictures and scenes of native tribes have been taken and will be shown at the Youcu Missionary Conference at GFC.
The Crescent Needs Critics A change in the editorial staff of any newspaper will generally be accomplished by some changes, be they revolutionary or for the most part unnoticed, in the choice of news to be covered and in the manner in which this coverage is presented on the typed news page. The reason for this change is the elementary principle that all people do not place like values on all items under consideration. Laying aside these differences of opinion, however, there are some basic objectives which a college newspaper must strive to attain if it is to be distinctive in properly serving the institution it represents. The Associated Collegiate Press has listed these objectives in its Newspaper Manual as: 1. To provide an organ of information that will present all the news desired by those who are actively interested in the institution—the students, faculty, administration, parents and alumni. 2. To provide an organ for the expression of student thought and to unify ideals and objectives. 3. To create a wholesome college spirit and to support the institution's best traditions. 7. To create a desire for the best forms of journalism. 4. To promote and encour-
age worthy college activities. 5. To promote scholarship. 6. To provide an outlet for the best creative work of students along the lines of writing, drawing and photography. 8. To record permanently the history of the institution. These achievements are not solely the responsibility of the editor of the newspaper (Miss Street, last year's editor, might well be commended for the journalistic feat she accomplished d u r i n g 1950), but also they are the responsibility of the staff writers and the readers of the newspaper. The staff writers will readily recognize that their role in a newspaper's success lies in faithful and well-handled reporting of news assignments. The reader may not so quickly associate himself as the newspaper's chief critic. His part in the accomplishment of any newspaper's objectives remains in judgment the paper on the basis of those eight objectives listed and then informing the editorial staff of his criticism. With the assistance of both the staff writers and the readers, it is the desire of this editorial staff to keep The Crescent serving George Fox College to the extent of its capabilities. —L.W.
Miss Clark Directs Final Production, Biblical Drama 'Whatsoever Ye Sow7 Lucy Clark has directed her final play at George Fox college. "Whatsoever Ye Sow", the second major drama production of the school year, culminated, on March 17, four years of GFC dramatics for Miss Clark. The Actorators' play, pronounced by Miss Clark the one with the "most elaborate staging" she had used, was given to two large and appreciative crowds. Attendance records showed that about 420 witnessed the Biblical drama on the nights of March 16 and 17. Background was a Jerusalem courtyard of Christ's day, complete with stone well, prince's dais, and backdrops chalked like marble walls. Palms grew in painted profusion at the stage left and velvet curtains hung at the entrance.

Louise Ralphs and Ruth Mills created the canvas palace and wooden palms, while Harold Magee and Ted Eichenberger lighted the stage,. Martha Lemmons supervised the costuming. Make-up assistant Gladys Engle and prompter Lois Burnett contributed to the production. The actual roles were played by Clifton and Louise Ralphs as Prince Stephen and his betrothed, Rebecca; the Prince's scribe, Daniel, was Larry Wyman, who played opposite Ruth, Anna's handmaid (Alice Hodson). Roger Smith performed as Eli, the Prince's steward. Anna, the Prince's mother (Margaret Shattuck) ,Woody Fletcher's Rabbi Joseph portrayal, and debtor Jude (Nigel Shockey) were supporting roles.

Spring Vacation CAN Be Fun . . . Marjorie Larrance Dear little Rodrick Frizzlecroft was about to embark on a spring vacation. He was just a freshman in college and hadn't had much experience in preparing for such occasions. But Rodrick was determined—one would have to be a determined soul to pack one's suitcase six times and never once doubt that everything would eventually go in. He had wondered a little, however, when it took all the fellows on his floor (o shut and fasten the thing—then the back hinge flew off. He never did find it, so he just tied a piece of clothesline wire around the suitcase, stuffed in a shirt sleeve, baseball glove and a few things that were hanging out along the sides, and he was ready to leave for home. Rodrick had been looking forward to Easter vacation for a long time. In fact his vacation had begun two weeks in advance of the regular one, because, as he said, "It would be absolutely ridiculous to study now, when one would have three days of Easter vacation to catch up on assignments." When Rodrick arrived home, however, so many delightful ideas assailed him that he simply couldn't bring himself to study. The first day he slept until noon, as he was terribly tired after the long trip. Then in the afternoon he couldn't resist visiting his old high school, and anyway he had another day in which to study. Let's see, there were only 100 pages of history of civilization. 80 pages of botany, and 75 pages of English to read with papers to write for each, besides a few other items to catch up on. That evening he was invited to a party, and, of course, he just couldn't refuse; but that was the last bit of fooling around he was going to do. The next morning Rodrick awakened to a beautiful sunny day, and he felt the over-powering call of spring "to be out and doing". He could study when he got

Slides Are Shown In Chapel, ChurchWilmer Brown, pastor of the Evangelical United Brethren church in Salem, Oregon, assisted by George Millen, presented a number of colored slides showing the progress of the new Israel state last Monday, March 19, during chapel period. He commented on each picture and gave small incidents of the wars between the Jews and Arabs. An occurrance of the destruction of an Arab tank was related. Two Jewish high school students perfected a home-made bomb in a large bottle and threw it into the tank. After the explosion the Arabs fled for their lives, fearing the "large army" behind them. "You think God isn't with this people?" was Mr. Browns' remark many times as he related other similar experiences. He reminded the GFC students of the small rock that caused the Philistine army to flee from the small lad David. Hitler's home was shown along with the large crematorium where thousands of Jews met a disastrous end employed by the Nazis during the war. A tall tree that was dead because of God's curse on it was also brought to view. Hundreds of Jews lost their lives on the limb of this tree. Because of the blood that flowed and the many murdered bodies used as fertilizer, the land is very rich and the crops are abundant. The Jews are restoring their land that once flowed "with milk and honey". "The prophecies of God's men of old are being fulfilled. How much longer will God give us to work before the triumphal return of the Master?" was Mr. Brown's closing comment.

A Capella Choir Presents Concerts In Easter Tour Through Boise Valley

Phone 3551 503 E. First St., Newberg
Leaving there, the Quaker singers sang at Star Friends Friday and in the studio of the Nampa radio station, KFXiD, Saturday night. The choir made four appearances on Easter Sunday, beginning with sunrise service at Lizard Butte. Clair Willcuts, Friends pastor at Homeaale, brought the message of the service. From there they traveled to Boise, singing at Whitney ^Friends in the morning and Boise First Friends in the afternoon. T h e evening service and also the largest of the trip was at Greenleaf. The concerts were well attended throughout the tour with the largest meetings, besides the Hinson Memorial convention, being at Whitney, where some sat on the lawn outside or in their cars to listen through loudspeakers, and at Greenleaf where there was standing room only, and some of that was taken. Homedale also packed the church there with some 220 people. Everyone agreed with fhe director, Marvin Baker, that God "blessed the trip and gave a glorious time." Homedale was the final concert Monday night, after which the tired but inspired group left for home.

Sports Scoreboard By Ralph Bebee As I take my typewriter in hand (I can only take it in one hand, because Bob Saucy is twisting the other behind m e , trying- to make me say something nice about him), I am overwhelmed by this task. Seriously though, Bob, I speak for the readers when I say w e appreciate the super job you've done. You've given GFC sports top coverage this year. For George Fox athletics, the 1950-51 basketball season was a real thing to talk about. Winning seasons at GFC have been few and far between, due partly to the competition against bigger schools. In 1947-48, the Quakers were able to salvage only one win in a 24 game schedule. The next year brought George Bales, along with a greater ephasis on athletics, to the campus. That season the maple courtmen won seven and lost ten. Last year, George's second, the Quakers ended with a seven and 11 record. Then came this auspicious season, with its 14 wins and seven losses, giving the young mentor 28 win against 28 losses in three years of basketball coaching. How one man can shoot 4S times in one game is something this columnist will never understand. Yes, you read correctly . . . 4S shots in one game. That's what Frank Hannibal of Multnomah, the conference's leading scorer, did against George Fox on February 23. The big forward hit only nine, and made seven free throws for a 25 point total that night. Baseball prospects look only fair at the present time. Nineteen men signed up, but only about a dozen have reported for the first few practices. It all the fellows who signified their intention of taking up the spring come out, a pretty good squad can be fielded. Nearly every position is still wide open, so all you fellows who can throw and run had better come out. Candidates for the three outfield positions include: Marv Hampton, who covered the middle garden last year; Bill Field, Harry Magee, and Leland Brown, all men with experience; and newcomers Al Clark, Kenny Magee, and Lee Puckett. First base aspirants are freshmen Verne Martin and Phil Lamm. The other infield positions have Jim Higgins and Harry Ryan at second, Jim Clayton at short, and Gene Smith in the hot corner, with Sammy Andrews a good possibility for any of these positions. Dick Zeller, a freshman, appears to be the top catching prospect. Also out for the mask job is another freshman, Ralph Beebe. Kick Riggs, Glen Livingston, and Marion Clarkson are the pitchers. Riggs did some of the chucking last year. Livingston and Clarkson both have high school experience on the mound. A major share of the team's success may depend on whether Coach Bales is able to induce

Thirty seconds before the final gun, with GFC leading 62-58, Gene Hockett hit the basket which would have given him a 20 point total in his last college game, but it was nullified by the referee. Hockett made a total of 18, however, which gave him an even 100 points in the ten conference games.
