Dr. Parker Elected Fellow in American Science Affiliation President Parker has recently been informed of his election to a Fellow of the American Scientific Affiliation. This honor has been awarded to only 25 of the 285 members who constitute the organization. Dr. Parker is a charter member of the ten-year-old affiliation which was founded and is now being carried on by Christian men of science. Their purpose, Dr. Parker states, is to conduct scientific research, study and observation of the innumerable instances which harmonize science and the Bible. Both contribution to the organization's activities and tenure constitute the basis for the election of the affiliation's fellows. Although Dr. Parker's work with the group has largely involved the submission of book reviews for scientific approval, many of which have been published in the scientists' quarterly journal, he has also had published an article which exposes many inadequacies involved in the theory of evolution. His current project in this field is a compilation of scientific observation called "Stepping Stones to Faith".

Harlow Ankeny, former director of Albany - Coi-vallis - Jefferson Youth for Christ, Wednesday accepted the position of director of public relations at George Fox college. He begins work here Monday. A seven-point public relations program around which he will work has been tentatively formulated, Ankeny said. The outline includes: 1. General student solicitation, 2. Solicitation of high school seniors, 3. $25-Club solicitation, 4. Public relation work with the alumni, 5. General publicity and material advertising, 6. Newspaper publicity. 7. Serving on three faculty committees: s c h o l a r s h i p , work and' public relations. Ankeny, who received his B.A. degree from George Fox in 1950, comes with a diversified background in the field in which he is to work. As a member of the Four Flats quartet, he travelled with that group for five summers During much of that time the Flats were officially representing the college. Harlow edited The Crescent when a junior here, having ser-ved

on the editorial staff prior to this as sports editor. During his senior year at Salem high school, he was editor of their school paper, The Clarion. Since the summer after his graduation, Ankeny has been director of the tri-city Youth for Christ groups. Co-active with his appointment here is his resignation of the YFC position.

For Accreditation Preparatory to making recommendations for improvement toward accreditation of George Fox college, a three-member committee from the Commission on Higher Schools of the Northwest Accrediting association inspected GFC, its facilities and constituents, on November 19. Heading the inspection committee was Claude Simpson, director of admissions at Washington State college, Pullman. Mr. Simpson, who was in charge of the area of personal relations on campus, interviewed several students, including the ASB president and Crescent editor, about the subjects of student morale, student-faculty relationship and student activities on the George Fox campus. Included in similar interviews were many of the faculty members. Other members of the inspection committee were the Rev. Dr. Paul J. Harney, faculty member of the University of San Francisco, and Professor Ernest Muzzall of Central Washington College of Education at Ellensburg. It was suggested, after the committee had inspected the 14,000 volume college library, that the history section was a bit deficient in the more recent publications. Dr. Parker announced Monday that the history department has submitted an order for 50 new volumes of the latest authoritative history references. The books will be shelved in the library immediately upon their arrival. The gentlemen were especially impressed, they said, with the manner in which the college faculty has been strengthened. Other features of which they spoke high* ly were the music department, dining hall accommodations and the well-equipped gymnasium and physical education department. President Parker recently affirmed that r this accreditation study, which has been joined by the entire faculty, "is making rapid improvement in curriculum offerings and the raising of general standards of George Fox."

Violin Soloist to Play With Portland Symphony Featured on the forthcoming Portland Symphony program for Monday evening, December 10, at 8:30, is Joseph Szigeti, violin soloist. Among the numbers to be played will be Iphigenia a t Aulis Overture, Gluck; Concerto in G Minor, Bach; Violin Concerto No. 1, Prokofieff; and Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Sibelius.

Reporter Deems Homecoming High Spot of the Year By Bob Adams Homecoming, November 12, may well be called a high spot of the school year. One heard it all over the campus . . . "Homecoming's a big success again!" Beginning with the 9 a. m. registration time, continuing through the mock class periods and the concurring open house, during the football game when GFC smashed to victory for the fourth game in a row, at the coronation of Queen Barbara I,

throughout the evening's banquet, and culminating with the dramatic performance, one heard alumni, friends, parents and students voicing their agreement that the 1951 Homecoming was one of the best ever. A record crowd watched Reed fall before the Quakers when the two traditional rivals clashed on the gridiron. The same crowd applauded its approval when ASB prexy, Frank Starkey crowned Miss Barbara Blake, freshman, first Homecoming queen to reign

at George Fox. In the evening, following the well-planned banquet, approximately 500 people witnessed the climax of the day when the GFC actors presented Marian Johnson's "The Bishop's Mantle". The play was acclaimed one of the most absorbing stage productions ever dramatized in Wood-Mar auditorium. Helping to make the day a more enjoyable one was the frequent appearance of that elusive individual, Mr. Oregon Sunshine.

Friday, December 7, 1951


Ten Years Ago Today . . . It was December 7 in '41 . . . Hardly a person is now alive, but remembers that famous day and year . . . Our radio had "blinked out" the night before, so it was a neighbor who related the news . . . "The Japanese have bombed Pearl Harbor . . ." Hardly understanding the meaning of bombs, the agents of selfishness and hatred, I queried my father as to what it all meant. I still remember his answer. "I believe," he said, "we are at war." That night his "belief" was confirmed by President Roosevelt. And now we are "at war" again. Although an official state of war has not been declared, all evidence seems to point up the theory that this, in reality, is the beginning of a greater conflict yet to come. On this, the tenth anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, I wonder just what is ever proved by war other than its own fallacy. I often think of Thomas Hardy's "The Man He Killed." Had these men met under circumstances other than the adversity of war, friendship and love should have resulted. "Love is stronger than hatred . . . Love can conquer war . . ." —L.W. Santa Claus vs. the Spirit of Christmas The Editor Commends By Marjorie Larrance Just eighteen more days until Christmas and we find America thoroughly enrapt in the pre-holiday bustle. In fact, the Thanksgiving turkey had scarely exhaled his last earthly breath when the city lamp poles began to don their characteristic holiday costumes. The ether waves are crowded with the traditional "White Christmas", "Santa Claus Is Coming to

On Current Happenings . . .

Town", and other popular seasonal songs. When one turns on the radio for some quiet relaxing music, his ear drums are shattered by the majestic bleating of the squeaky lyric soprano voice of "Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer", who has been industrously "guiding Santa's sleigh" for at least two weeks, with three more to go. The dress models and other displays graciously move out of the store windows and take a back seat for the fat little man with the moth-eaten beard and brilliant red suit. In the store proper, Santa Claus sets up his regime and the masses begin their month-long adoration of the "Spirit of Christmas." Excited, wide-ej'ed children tumble over Santa, while he sweats behind his mack and overstuffed front, glibly promising them anything their little hearts anight desire as he hands them their candy cane. Thus, the commercialization of a day with a forgotten meaning goes on. Why do we have a Christmas? There must be something deeper than the sentiment surrounding a jolly little man who drives eight tiny reindeer and slides down peoples' chimneys bringing gifts and cheer into their homes. Is the Star of Bethlehem exchanged for tinsel and gay decorations, and the Creator's supreme Gift to the world forgotten amid the fast whirl of gala festivities? What doe's Christmas mean to you?

Governor Earl Warren of California surprised no one last month when he announced that he would permit his name to be entered in the California primaries as a candidate for the G.O.P. presidential nomination. Senator Taft had jumped the gun on him, however. For some months Ohio's "Mr. Republican" had been beating the bushes throughout the Eastern states scaring up a few supporters.

He wanted desperately to see some friends or relatives, and he remarked that he thought he might find them at the zoo. (When the class roared with laughter, the surprised Prof explained hastily that some of his folks often were at the zoo—visiting of course.) PROFESSOR McNEELY has discovered a new method of writing: phonograms. The whole class spurred him on to research in the field when they gave him a class roll listing such names as "Gearaid Automobile'' (JERRY CARR) and "Frosty" (GINNY MAE WINTERS), and pictures galore . . .

Foreign Missions Prexy Selected To Attend Illinois Convention Bob Adams, president of the George Fox chapter of the Foreign Missions Fellowship, has been selected as its representative to attend the third International Student Missionary convention in Urbana, Illinois, to bs held December 27-31.

Youth for Christ Reaches to Portugal CHICAGO—So rapid has the Youth for Christ work in Portugal expanded, according to a letter from Missionary Sam Paircloth of the Conservative Baptists, that there is a crying need for a person to do nothing but direct Youth for Christ work in the country. Six young Portuguese attended the fourth annual Youth for Christ World Congress on Evangelism at Brussels, Belgium, in August, 1950, and came back with a vision of evangelizing the country. Five Youth, for Christ teams also have visited the country and Rev. and Mrs. Ken Cumings of Detroit are still there, three months after their plans called for them to move into Germany and France. Arthur Brown, recent graduate from Wheaton college and a team member there in 1950, returns at the end of December for additional meetings. At least 2,000 Portuguese have professed a personal faith in Christ in the first nine months of 1951, according to reports in the YFC Million Souls Crusade.

Newberg HS Gives Christmas Concert Newberg high school's annual Christmas concert at 8 p. m. on Monday, December 17, will feature the choir, band and girls' glee club. The musicale, a variety of Christmas selections, will be held in the high school auditorium. Thte girls' glee will harmonize in "White Christmas" and "Winter Wonderland." "Come and Gather, Little Children," "Carol of the Bells," "I Wonder as I Wander," and Handel's "Hallelujah Chprus" are the choir numbers. A group of carol arrangements will be featured by the squad.


Book Store

The convention will be conducted under the auspices of the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship on the University of Illinois campus, and will feature nearly 100 speakers and missionaries gathered from every continent on earth. An expected 1,500 delegates from all sections of the United States will gather for the five-day session of missionary emphasis and inspiration. The FMF is now in the process of raising funds to send President Adams to Illinois. Total cost is estimated at $100. To raise this sum, the FMF'ers are collecting and selling waste paper. Future plans of the society include using the inspiration and material to be gathered at this convention for a one-day Missionary Conference for the Pacific Northwest. It is tentatively scheduled to be held here at GFC early in February.

Student Ministers Elect Officers, Hear Lecture Off to a slow start this fall, the Student Ministerial association recently elected officers for the year. Installed as president was Jack Wing, sophomore from California. Carmen Parmenter was elected vice-president; OrviUe Winters, secretary; and Klane Robison, treasurer. The group chose Fred Carter, pastor of th# Chehalem Center Friends church, as adviser. The SMS is the campus club organized primarily for student ministers, but it excludes no one from membership who plans to enter other types of full time Christian service. In the first meeting with the new officers, on November 27, Mr. Carter addressed the group. Various other outside speakers will be featured throughout the year.

Winter Conference Planned by CE Oregon Yearly Meeting's first CE mid-winter convention is well on its way to becoming a reality. The publicity committee, headed by Roger Smith and Ralph Beebe, have sent posters, which will be on all bulletin boards this Sunday, and weekly letters to the yearly meeting churches. With only three weeks left 'til convention time, pre-registration tickets are being sold for 50 cents. Everyone interested in the success of the venture is urged to buy one from his local CE president. Those who attend the convention will pay an additional 50 cents for registration there. Cost for meal? for the three days, including the Saturday banquet, is $4.00. The famed Four Flats will be in charge of all music, while Jack Willcuts, Lents Friends pastor, is to be the speaker. The executive committee of the CE union of OYM, presided over by prexy Cliff Ralphs, will meet in conjunction with the convention.

B y R a l p h Beebe W i t h six l e t t e r m e n and a few outstanding freshmen, basketball prospects look fairly bright for the Quakers. The biggest problem is finding a center t o fill the slot left open when Cliff Ralphs decided n o t to play ball. Sophomore Dick Zeller and Orville W i n t e r s , a 6:1 freshman who is t h e tallest m a n on t h e squad, a r e fighting for t h e position. Neither is a letterman, b u t Zeller played for the junior v a r s i t y position l a s t year. A t g u a r d s the Balesmen a p p e a r strong. Regulars Gerald Lemmons and Verne Martin are back, along with lettermen Bill Field and Howie H a r m o n , and a b r i g h t freshman prospect, N o r m a n W i n t e r s . Nigel Shockey, a regular last year, letterman J e r r y Carr, and freshman E l m e r Kendall a r e the R a l p h Beebe forwards. The Metropolitan conference will begin action on J a n u a r y 11. After two seasons a s runner-up, the Quakers will be out full force to cop the championship. Though very short, excessive speed and conditioning should give t h e locals a good chance for success.

Football season is over, but we would like to say a few words in praise of Coach Bales and his men. I t is truly a m a z i n g t h a t the Quakers were able to rebound so sharply from a nine g a m e losing s t r e a k (the last six of 1950 and the first three this y e a r ) . Consideration of t h e schedule t h e Balesmen played gives added reason for applauding the squad. Only one loss w a s suffered to a n y team aside from OCE and EOCE, and t h a t was a t the lowest ebb of the season, when Pacific J V squeaked through to a 6-0 victory. Losses of 37 and 41 points to OCE a n d E O C E should not be looked upon as serious m a r s on t h e record. F e w fans realize w h a t Coach Bales is up a g a i n s t when playing these t e a m s . N o t only a r e t h e schools four or five times a s large, but t h e y pay expenses of m a n y of their players, inducing good a t h l e t e s to enroll. A n o t h e r i m p o r t a n t factor is the e x t r a coaching these m e n receive. George Bales h a s t o do by himself w h a t two or t h r e e coaches a r e paid full w a g e s t o a c complish a t the schools under discussion. While the g a m e Is being played, one coach sits high above the field in the press box. F r o m this aerial view it is f a r easier t o spot weaknesses in the enemy t e a m . A steady telephone conversation is maintained with t h e head coach o r q u a r t e r b a c k on t h e bench. Actually, the man in the v a n t a g e point of the press box almost dictates play throughout the g a m e .
