Services in the college chapel beginning nine days ago, were at 10:30 each morning. The evening church hour is 7:30. The young people's Christian Endeavor leads a pre-prayer service at 7:15 each evening. During the meetings Dr. Hodgin has preached messages including such subjects as the method of God's call, prayer, holiness before God, spiritual unrest vs. spiritual rest, "The Sign of the Serpent," "Divine Dynamics," "The Unnecessary Disobedience," the Quaker baptism, the drama of Felix, and "Christian Perfection." The evangelist's exposition of Christian perfection yesterday named five types—perfection of faith, perfect oneness in Christ, perfection in work, perfection of, and the core, perfect love. "To be perfect," he declared, "is Dr. Arnold Hodgin to reach the point of having the power to do what we should do toward fulfilling the end for which we were made." In the sermon concerning Felix Wednesday night, the Kentuckian preacher and teacher compared the Milo Ross, pastor of Seattle action of Felix, Drusilla and Paul to a drama.

CE Exec Committee Schedules Speaker

Secretary of the student body for the coming year will be Rosette Ballard, junior, from Plains, Kansas. Rosetta receives the office from Gargaret Weber, junior from Greenleaf, Idaho. Carmen Parmenter was elected to the office of student body treasurer, succeeding Gene Mulkey. Carmen is from Tacoma, Washington, and is a sophomore. Filling the office of chief treasurer will be Harold Weesner, junior. Harold is from Newberg. He succeeds Gerald Lemmons, a senior. Freshman Betty Brown of Greenleaf, Idaho, has been chosen to edit GFC's newspaper, the Crescent, for next year. Being a freshman, Betty had to have a two-thirds majority in order to be elected. Larry Wyman, a Homedale, Idaho senior, is the outgoing editor. The post of L'Ami editor for the year 1952-53 will be handled by Margaret Weber, junior from Greenleaf, Idaho. D e F o r r e s t Fletcher, from Friday Harbor, Washington, is the editor this year.

DRAMA CANCELLED The Easter drama "Crown of Thorns," sponsored by the Actorators, has been cancelled. Because some of the cast members were forced to resign due to the pressure of other responsibilities, recasting would have been necessary, and shortness of time presented a serious obstacle to the production. The dramatics department will release plans for re-scheduling the customary spring play later in the semester.

The quartet is giving this program as a benefit for the completion of George Fox college's Hester Memorial gymnasium. There will be no admission fee; however, a free will pledge drive to raise funds will be held. The Four Flats—Richard Cadd, bass; Ronald Crecelius, second tenor; Norval Hadley, first tenor; and Harlow Ankeny, baritone— are not functioning as an active quartet this year. Cadd is teaching a t Greenleaf Friends Academy, Greenleaf, Idaho. Crecelius is doing post-graduate work a t George Fox and is assistant pastor at Lents Friends church, Portland. Hadley is attending Western Evangelical Seminary a t Jennings Lodge, Oregon, while Ankeny is now publicity manager for George Fox college.

Anderson Returns to George Fox; Recalls Experiences of Past Years

A new group of faces in Com position lb was the only major change noted by Mrs. Lucy Clark Anderson when she returned to the campus Monday to complete the term of Marvin G. Baker, who recently resigned his position in the English and speech departments. Mrs. Anderson, who joined the

George Fox faculty in 1947, taught here until the close of spring semester last year. A t that time she was still Miss Lucy Clark, but only two days later, her name, as well as her occupation, was changed when she married Alvin L. Anderson, an instructor a t Cascade college, to become a Portland housewife.

Recalls Costa IUcan Courtship In recalling her courtship days, Mrs. Anderson never fails to mention the "plam trees shimmering in the Costa Rican moonlight," for it was in Costa Rica during the summer of 1950 that Lucy first met "Andy." Anderson was an instructor there in the Methodist mission school, Escuela Methodista, in which "Miss Clark" was also to do educational work. Another highlight of Mrs. Anderson's summer in Costa Rica was her first plane ride. "The round-trip between LA and Central America via Pan-American still leaves me breathless," she says. Directs Many College Plays Having a wealth of experience in play directing, Mrs. Anderson was consulted immediately upon her return Monday about techniMrs. Lucy Anderson calities in the staging of the spring production, "Crown of Thorns".

And Now We Present.. . She was going to say her first piece. A little girl stood stiffly on the platform nervously awaiting her turn. The boy next to her was saying his lines loud and strong. In return came loud applause. Then it was time for her to speak. Weakly she cleared her throat and as she twisted her handkerchief into a knot timidly said, "My stocking's short, and so am I, and so is my piece; goodbye!" She had done it! She had spoken her first piece! The youngster paid little heed to the dwindling amount of praise given her. She had taken another step on the ladder of progress and felt the satisfaction of a new task accomplished. This portrays, in part, the feeling of the editor as she assumes her new position, previously filled by capable Larry Wyman. Bouquets to you, Larry, for success in achieving and maintaining a paper of highest quality! This first issue under new editorship is not, perhaps, as well formulated as former publications. We do not apologize—only state that we hope to make progress in the journalistic field each issue throughout 1952. In doing so our aim is to stress student activities and emphasize the cause for which we stand, thus promoting reader interest. Our ultimate goal is to maintain a combination of quality and interest. Letters to the editor concerning your opinions will be welcomed. A box for suggestions and news items will be placed in the hall soon. And now we present The Crescent to you, our reader. —B.B.

LATEST EDITION Howard and Bethlin Harmon announced the arrival of a daughter, Marilyn Rose, born March 12, 5:30 a. m. at Vancouver Memorial hospital. Marilyn weighed seven pounds and six ounces. She is 20 y2 inches long and has dark hair. Vet house number 16 will b? her home when she comes to Newberg the. first of next week. Marilyn, we welcome you as the newest member of our family here on the campus.

WHAT'S GOIN' ON Nothing happening on our campus? Why, I should say there is! Just listen to these bits of news. JERRY CARR, a sophomore from Portland, had four teeth pulled last Tuesday. He took gas, and said he enjoyed "walking around on spongy clouds!" MISS SILL'S mother, Mrs. Harold Sill from Seattle, Washington, is visiting at Edwards hall. It is reported that she is an excellent cook, as many students enjoyed eating piping hot butterhorns at the dorm Wednesday evening. It seems as if PAUL RALPHS, a new freshman this semester, has taken an interest in oratory. His botany test paper verifies this statement. As well as a "flu" epidemic on the campus, many students are suffering with "homesickness." GENE and NADINE MULKEY, MARGARET WEBER, BETTY BROWN, MARJORIE LARRANCE, JO HENDRICKS, MARION CLARKSON, and GENE COMPORT are going home for the week-end. Publicity manager HARLOW ANKENY noticed a story in a local newspaper that looked vaguely familiar. Showing it to his wife, GERTUDE, he mentioned that they had certainly made a lot of changes in it. He was then informed that she had written the story. Both are former Crescent editors. Weren't the election campaign posters interesting and the campaigning fun? One clever sign tacked to a tree in front of Hoover hall said, "Wanted: BEEBE for President. Dead or Alive. Big Reward." We got it, didn't we? I saw something funny in the student body office. The new editor sat in her swivel chair. "LARRY WYMAN sat like this" she said demonstiating momentarily. Headline for this article is "Unbalanced Editor Collapses."

You had better be careful what

Unknown Treasure Found in Literature Browsing in the library can prove profitable—even in the monetary sense of the term. At least, that is what Professor Paul Mills is telling these days. His story: At a recent faculty meeting, a tour of the library was made for the purpose of ferreting out ail the out-dated books in some sections. Professor Mills got only as far as the library office, where he found a yet uncatalogfted book entitled, The Bible, Its Structure and Purpose. The volume interested him, and, as is the custom of so many "men of the books," he sneaked off and began to read it. This time it really paid off—for somebody. In the book, stuck between two yellowed pages, were postal savings certificates purchased in 1912 for $25.00 face value. With accumulated interest, they now demand $45.00. Since postal savings cannot be transferred, Professor Mills is none the richer for the incident. The certificates having been turned over to the post office, their owner, one A. Wisborg of Portland or his heirs, is now being sought for. It's surprising how rapidly the faculty ran through the rest of those books. They must have been looking for something . . . .


Cruising With the Choir Exclusive Entertainment The Quaker Singers took their first tour of the year February 27 to March 2, singing in churches in Corvallis, Grants Pass, Medford, and Talent, Oregon. As on any choir trip many incidents occurred that have become school anecdotes. On the way to Corvallis someone suddenly remembered that the stoles had been left in senior Gerald Lemmons' car in Salem. After a bit of discussion Harlow Ankeny, school business manager, remarked unconcernedly, "If it's those yellow ribbons you're looking for, I just happened to put them in with the robes." Lost and Found: During the trip to Grants Pass, Marian "Poochie" Perry and Dick Zeller, both sophomores, lost their shoes. They didn't feel to badly, however; they still had their "tongues" and made a pretty good "pair." There were gains as well as losses. One really worthy of note was senior Priscilla Coble's new friend. See her personally for more particulars. Freshmen Dave Elliott, Don Pearson and Wally Delano, and sophomore Gene Comfort, enjoyed a motor bot ride on the Rogue river Saturday morning. It was rumored that Gene is the first GF'er to go swimming this year. It was learned later that all the lone soph got wet was his hand. Believe-It-or-Not-Dept.: Who ever heard of eating pie, two eggs, five slices of bacon, one glass of fruit juice, two cups of cocoa, three biscuits with jam, and a bowl of chili for breakfast? Dick Zeller, Paul Puekett, Marvin Hampton, and Danny Barham did in Medford. They stayed at the home of and Opal Finley, students a t George Fox last year. Seems the Finleys remembrred about the fellows' appetites. After giving the concert Saturday evening at Medford, the choir went to Talent for its Sabbath morning service. A delicious meal of chicken and noodles with pie for dessert was served at lunch. One choruster (male) reports having eaten seven pieces of pie. After being on the road four days, the choir returned to Newberg Sunday night at 11 o'clock, the horn of the chartered Hammond bus blowing for two blocks. They say "All's swell that ends swell." Who knows? Maybe that saying originated with a reurning GFC choir years ago.

Gadabout Gremlin Gleefully Grabs Governing Group's Guiding Gambits Sitting on my bed last night, I was startled by a tiny figure marching across my floor. I don't know how he got in—do gremlins go through or under doors? Anyway, there he was, a real live gremlin who scrambled up by bedspread, perched on my shoulder and whispered in my ear, introducing himself as Gus Gremlin and telling me that he'd been watching our new student body officers; this is what he said: "They all have a complaint— not anything really aggravating but just a 'pet peeve.' Did you know the new Crescent editor, Betty Brown's hardest trial is the early hour of rising in order to get to breakfast? Rosetta Ballard, secretary, believes that Oregonians are highly disillusioned in that they brag about the beautiful weather when all the time is rains and pours. And Verne Martin, your vice-president, suffers untold agonies when foreigners from other states gripe tbout the Oregon weather. I suppose L'Aml editor, Margaret Weber, being a waitress,

George Fox Boasts Mid-Term Graduate It's gone! George Fox college's grey, blue, gold bus has been sold to Westco Bus Sales company, Oswego, Oregon. The bus will be refnembered by many alumni as well as present students a^s the "faithful" vehicle which took them through Oregon, Washington, Idaho and California oil various choir tours. The seniors remember when the bus, a former Greyhound, was purchased in 1948. The evening Roy "Pop" Knight, their business man ager, brought the bus home a large group of students boarded the bus and traveled to Dundee, the home of Dr. Carey, the president of the college. Funds for painting were raised by the student body who also donated labor in sanding and painting. Last Tuesday the toW-car pulled the bus from the garage, out into the street and slowly away. The bus is gone. But, isn't that alright? It has been here four years and has been active in extra-curricular activities (when conditions permitted). It's time it graduated!

"What's that? Oh, dear r a fire alarm!" With this Gus scampered away . . . while I suddenly awoke to reality to reach over and shut off the jangling alarm clock. Spring vacation will begin, at 4 o'clock Thursday, April 10. Classes Will resume at 8 o'clock Tuesday, April 15.

"And Prexy Ralph Beebe has some advice for the students. Listen to this: he doesn't believe his feeling is exactly a pet peeve but he is interested in seeing the students display a greater amount of individualism and loyalty to the student body. He says that 'if we art to maintain an adequate form of student government, each member of the GFC student body must realize that he or she is a vital part of the institution and must accept all responsibility thereby entailed'." "You really have an enthusiastic group pf officers. Why, you should hear the reforms and improvements they suggest! Verne and Ralph agree that real student interest should be aroused while Harold believes that material which is to be presented in meeting should he better organized. Carmen maintains that students need to put more pressure on their class representatives and Betty thinks it would be a good idea to have a chapel in which a panel holds a model business meeting. Margaret and Rosetta say that the student body should publish- a handbook for new students containing the constitution and social customs, while Margaret suggests a course in parliamentary procedure be given in- the freshman composition classes."

Quakers Meet Concordia Tomorrow Night Metropolitan Conference Standings The Metropolitan conference race is going right down to the wire this year, and as this is being written there is still a possibility of a three-way deadlock for top honors. Oregon Medical has already completed its season, with a 7-3 record. Last night Concordia played Reed, but the outcome of that contest has not been received as yet. If Reed upset the Lutherans, and Concordia was to defeat GFC Saturday, three teams, George Fox, Concordia, and Oregon Medical would each end with seven wins against three defeats. A more likely possibility would be a Concordia win in each game mentioned, landing the Quakers in a second place tie for the third straight year. The Quaker season record now stands at 15 wins and 8 setbacks. Last year's record w a s 14-7, Ralph Beebe and six-four in conference play. George Bales' hoopers, after a slow start, have won 12 of the last 15 starts, and all of the last five. Last year Nigel Shockey regarded sophomore point maker, led the team with 369, a 17.6 average for the 21 game season. This year Shockey is averaging 18.4 with 424 points in 23 starts.





Tentative plans are underway for a Metropolitan conference allstar game, featuring the league champion team against an all-star squad picked from the rest of the league. The date and place of this contest has not been announced. Each coach was asked to choose the best six players of the MCC, and to put one of his own boys on this sextet. The ten men receiving the most votes, excluding those on the first place club, will play the championship squad in the all-star fracas. A very interesting statement was made by Coach Bales after the George Fox selections were submitted for the all-star aggregation. Bales said, "I can't conscientiously choose the best player from m y own team. Every man is a vital cog and our club wouldn't be successful without him." Coach Bales let the team members vote their choices for the honor. * * » * Prospects are fair for the coming baseball campaign. Bernard (Mac) McGrath will coach the team. Several games are being scheduled, and if all the baseball talent on the campus turns out for the spring sport, a good season should ensue. * * * * DcForrcst (Woody) Fletcher is taking over track coaching duties this yoar. Fletcher reports a good turnout for the first practices. March 28 is the date of the first meet, a dual affair with the Linfleld frosh as host. On April 5 the Quakers will participate in the Willamette relays at Salem. Twenty colleges and 100 high schools will send over 2,000 athletes to the meet.

Fox-Men Dazzle U of O Medicals A brilliant, dazzling third quarter comeback evened the count for George Fox against Oregon Medical March 4, and the fighting Quakers continued the assault to win a 64-58 verdict. A t halftime the Medicine Men, hitting an unbelievable 80 per cent of all field shots, had built up a convincing 40-23 advantage. Despite that disheartening, seemingly unsurmountable deficit, George Bales' hoopmen went into the second half determined to come out on top—and did! In the third stanza GFC dumped through 22 points while the Doctors made only five. In all, the Balesmen made 41 points while holding OM to 18 in the last half, i Twenty-five points from the accurate shooting arm of Nigel Shockey put the Quaker scoring ace over the four century mark with a 404 point total for the season, an 18.4 average per game.

High pointer for the molar-men was forward Roy Lusch with 14. Nigel Shockey copped high honors for the Quakers with a total of 18. Running a close second was Elmer Kendall with 14. Starting line-up for the home team was: forwards—Nigel Shockey and Elmer Kendall; center— Bill Field; guards—Verne Martin and Gerald Lemmons.
