The World Is Our Campus By Mackey W. Hill I write this a few hours after the election. T h e picture is obscure a t this time r e g a r d i n g the outcome in the races for the senate. I t apparently is o n * o f the closest congressional races in history. Some a r e saying t h a t it is a 1 per cent or 2 per cent difference t h a t will determine the outcome. The indications a r e t h a t the Democrats have won control of the House of Representatives, b u t control of the Senate waits t h e outcome of six critical races for the Senate. However, Cordon leads Neuberger in Oregon by a safe m a r g i n . President Eisenhower assured his p a r t y early in t h e midst of election r e t u r n s t h a t their cause would ultimately win out although they suffer some reverses now. Some Democratic candidates showed large leads a t an early time b u t were overtaken later by their Republican opponents. The election outcome seems to br much closer t h a n llic dopesters indicated. However, for t h e m o s t p a r t t h e polls have been proven to be substantially correct. Whoever controls the Senate will be in a s t r a t e g i c position regarding the policy of investigating committees. To a large extent this will determine who and w h a t shall be investigated w i t h the characteristic outcome. The attention t h u s can be focused upon a r e a s t h a t will favor the p a r t y t h a t controls the Senate. Whoever h a s control will be confronted with the first Senate business in a few days in the Censure charges session. If the Democrats t a k e over the Senate, a t t e n t i o n could be focused on the controversial Dixon-Yates electrical contract and the McCarthy Censure ruckus buried under o r a t o r y on another matter. Home races in this election arc so close t h a t it m a y be days before the outcome, is finally settled. Some s t a t e s Mill have to recount their votes. B u t i t all shows t h a t t h e r a c e is exceedingly close between t h e major political p a r t i e s in A m e r i c a with t h e consequent effectiveness or ineffectiveness for those administering -and determining national policy.

Official Publication Earns High Rating In Critical Mark-up Crescent editors received word this week t h a t the papers published during the second semester of the 1953-54 school year r e ceived an honor r a t i n g of F i r s t Class. A total of 1,365 points as judged by t h e Associated Collegiate P r e s s of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis w a s aw a r d e d on journalistic t r e a t m e n t of the publications. News sources, creativeness, content, makeup, headlines, and typegrapliy a r e a m o n g the items judged. The Crescent received several "excellent" r a t i n g s with other scores r a n g i n g from "good" lo "very good". Supervising J u d g e of I he critical m a r k - u p service of the University, A r t h u r M. Sanderson notes: " F i r s t class r a t i n g s have been given only to those outstanding papers which show high quality work in all categories of coverage, content, and physical properties. P a p e r s which a r e accorded AU-American or F i r s t Class r a t i n g s should be justly proud of their fine achievement". P a p e r s are classed according to the enrollment and frequency of publication. George Fox college h a s maintained a high average of honor r a t i n g s although the Crescent is in the 500 enrollment category and is judged accordingly.
Football's Frosty Yardlines Glimmer Through Byrd's Ballet Opening 'the social swirl for this winter season was the charming cortier thrown by the George Fox society of football. The event was hold on the school lawns behind the Hester Memorial and Kanyon hall. -With clever whiLe trellises at either end and frosty while stripes on the lawn everyone agreed that the decorations were most charming. The party was a gay success. Many guests retired to sit down and watch the others frolic. A perfectly- delightful entertainment was devised by the host. Ii was a modern dance depicting the striuggle between labor and management as to who was really on the bifll. The chorography was unique. The chorus line was made up entirely of the most deformed young men. They had little bitty heads settling way down amongst the largest shoulders I have ever seen. Many of their bodies tapered off By Bob into almost nothingness. The orchestral ensemble consisted almost entirely of percussion instruments. After a little soft-shoe routine the ballet master leaped into the air,, much like the dying swan, and hurled the oval shaped object into the air. With a graceful stag, dancer number 38 flew through the air' and caught the little ball. With a mad scramble number 38 leaped, strutted and staggered towards one end of the lawn in a scene
quite reminiscent of the second movement of Stravinsky's "Firebird" ballet. The program seemed t6 be divided into four acts with the division between acts three and four being a somewhat longer intermission. During this time the dancers and other guests retired for demi tasse. The third act was quite uneventful. The dancers we're very routine and the pattern^ formed on the lawn were quite unfinished. In fact ma,ny of the dancers got out of the pattern and fell down or tripped one another. This act definitely 'needed more finesse. However, the fourth act was a fitting finale. There was one scene that was particularly fascitating. A rather small dancer (Frederich Newkirk is a dancer to watch ascend to the very top in the modern ballet idiom) leaped through a hole in the chorus formation and did dainty pirouettes Byra across the backs of the other dancers to arrest that little ball. He showed form and grace rarely seen in so little a dancer. This was also an extremely hazardous routine so their "ballet slippers had little points on the bottom to keep them from slipping on the grass. Much credit for this inspiring treat goes to the great chorographer Ralph Beebe. He demonstrated a mastery of the subtle color tones of the modern ballet dance.
"Welcome Home!// We of the present family here at George Fox welcome you, our alumni and former students,, together with your friends and ours, back again to the lovely campus which means so much to all of us. It is like our return from a long and extended absence from home, when we make the last turn in the road and glimpse the old farm-stead, first the trees and the large"r buildings, and later the house and the front gate and the flowers. It is hard to walk up to the door. But then—"the old, familiar faces"—a sense of belonging, of satisfaction, of having arrived. It is said that the three most important factors in one's life are the home,, the church and the school. But in a college community such as this, in which we live together for years and we come back on occasion, and with the memory of wholesome Christian associations which mean as much in the shaping of our life goals as does the scholastic challenge, George Fox is more than just another college—it is a home, a church and a school all in one! Perhaps that is why it means so much. So, welcome home! George Fox college is yours. —President Milo C. Ross
Students Extend Welcome On this Homecoming Day each year ,we look forward with great anticipation to seeing all of our friends return to the campus of George Fox college. To many this occasion is the reunion of parents and relatives with a son or daughter in the college. To others it is a time when many must feel this is a reunion of the school family. We hope that throughout the day you will find your stay an enjoyable and happy experience. We extend a hearty welcome to you and hope that your interest and concern for the college will be sharpened by your visit. —Orville Winters, Associated Students President

Alliterative Author Relates Adventures Of Nature Nomads By Rosemary Ramsey "Too much coast at the weekend," was my explanation for the strange behavior of GFC biology majors last Monday. But we really had fun; let me tell you about it. A week ago last Friday afternoon ten biology enthusiasts, including the Dades and Miss Dunkel departed during a dreadful downpour for the southern coast of Washington for a weekend of general hatiire study (?) burdened with boots, binoculars, buckets and birdbooks, slickers, sleeping bags, sweaters and socks, coats, cameras, keys and cookery. Some four hours later we arrived at Seaview and spent the next hour in a semi-starved state searching for "Hanson's Mansion", which we found after trying to unlock all the neighbors' doors. The remainder of the evening was passed eating stew and playing "Stinky Pinky". It was with enthusiasm and inspiration we set out at dawn the next morning (10:00 a. m.) with all the zeal of a uranium prospecting party. But what a strange procession that made its way home - - falteringly, disillusioned, dirty and dead-tired—six hours later! Had this explorative biological expedition been a failure, a flop, a fizzle? No! We had reaped the benefits of nature for we now proudly possessed two lonesome lizards, one large green frog, a half-dozen wilted wildflowers and a large red and yellow fungus. (The lizards and frog now rest in the biology l a b but the withering weeds and fading fungus lie limp and lifeless, left where weary wanderers fell famished and fagged by the friendly fire. (.No, I do not write any of the familiar "feature heads".) It was a beat bunch of biologists who retired early (ha!) after a short drive to the bird sanctuary. However, we awoke refreshed and eager on Sunday morning and after church and dinner we crossed a few more miles of beach, only with more restraint than before. Then before we knew it—it was time to start back to GFC. (And it didn't even rain!) Did we learn anything? I'll say! Just ask any biology major what a Western Grebe, a blue heron, or a "Stinky Pinky" is. This just goes to show that a biologist's best buddy isn't always his bird book!

QlcMcwUf, Back This Appeared in flic Orescent One Year Ago: Her majesty, Queen Nancy I (Mrs. Don Lamm) was elected to rule over the traditional Homecoming football game Saturday. Five Years Ago: Margaret Shattuck, (Mrs. Gerald Lemmons) took top honors for the first six weeks with a grade point average of 3.96. Second highest was Gertrude Ankeny with a G.P.A. of 3.94. Fifteen Years Ago: "Where is Bruin Jr. ?" The seniors smile when asked this the freshmen look dazed. They wonder about the identity of Bruin Jr. Is he mj'thical or is there really a Bruin ? The seniors tell us that Bruin is in safe-keeping now, and has been for two years ever since they gained possession of him. (Sounds like 1954) Twenty Years Ago: Pacific college observed its third annual Homecoming day Monday with a record attendance and a program which included a 24-6 football victory over Reed college. Twenty-Two Years Ago: Pacific College's first Homecoming day was held on Friday. Nearly one hundred, guests were here. Twenty-Five Years Ago: Someone should suggest to the college that more money might be earned by exhibiting its Freshman class in some side show. Thirty Years Ago: ' "Seventeen men on a fullback's chest; Ho, ho, ho, and bottle of Sloan's." Forty Years Ago: Always shooting and forever making Mrs. - Cupid.
prayer to religion. Oh, some psychologists say it is the transference of an emotional tension from our inferior mind to some fogjy superior cloud of existence which takes the burden of responsibility off people's chests. In other words it is simply a tension release mechanism giving comfort. To the feeble souls who only find in prayer a shot of morphine to their tension-laden nerves, I send ii sparing ulance of sympathy to their pathetic ignorance. If these people were right, I would regret with embarrassment every knee bent moment I have spent in solitude muttering petitions to myself. John Moreland writes: Prayer is not artful monologue Of voice uplifted from the sod; It is Love's tender dialogue between the soul and God. Christian prayer is inseparable from faith. It is on no higher level than the foolish jabber of an idiot, if not coupled with faith that God is all he is revealed to be in the scriptures through the blood of Christ. Prayer is an instrument by which life is refreshed by con-, versation with God, who looks not on the outward appearance, but sees the heart in its truest state. Through this short wave system we have access to power beyond imagination. But wait! As regularly as the oceanic waves are the pleadings of Christian souls to God for attainment of steps toward an ideal life. Faith, Faith. It is the only answer— faith in the surlety of the resurrection of Christ to perform a regeneration in our life like springtime following blizzardous winter. John Keble submits a fitting conclussive verse: Only, O Lord, in Thy dear love Fit us for perfect rest above; And help us this and every day To live more nearly as we pray.
I live With a Crescent Editor... Or Can You Top This? By Lavelle T h a t r»nol nnfl right rip-Ht n vw That one! ThatThat one over there! That's my roommate, the CRESCENT editor. No one needs to tell me what week it is, it shows by the look on her face. Her eyes seem glassy and insipid, and her mind seems pre-occupied. Wednesday night is the night she spends cutting, changing, typing, and nagging. She always comes dragging home about 3 a. m., ' sometimes triumphant and sometimes. . . .well. . . .Thursday morning I study that weary and discouraged countenance across the breakfast table, for, without fail, she is always at breakfast during CRESCENT week. But later in the morning I see her scurrying around campus pleading for late assignments and checking on the "latest". Having vivid visions of blank columns she quickly dreams up filler. Suddenly she remembers with a shriek that the cut of the football team hasn't come in yet. She races out of the house leaving her physical science book perched precariously on the edge of her desk. An hour later I see her trudging home. . .. Ardeth had picked up the cut but had forgotten to tell her. As for living with the editor, it isn't so bad if you have a sympathetic ear and a literary gift. I had never had much contact with the CRESCENT, until now, under the direct influence of my room-mate, Florene, I'm becoming a "budding columnist".
I really don't mind so much if she doesn'tj listen to what I have to say, or gets up and leaves when I'm. talking, or even if she goes off to meals without me. Then there are those "political secrets" which she harbors, and the time I was sick in bed three days, and she walked back and forth but didn't see me until the
C^RT^RPF^'MT woe out. outCRESCENT was
nnrl quote finnte . .and "You been sick?" Ah. .this is the life, being the editor's room-mate. Any Friday night of CRESCENT week you can hear her, as she fades off to dreamland murmer "Alma mater GFC."
Hey! What's going on around here? I'm getting tired of "being dead. Why don't those George Fox college students hurry and declare me aHve so I can have some fun again? I sat for so long down in that stuffy museum then the class of 1954 let me sit on the stage during their class night and a freshman boy came up and got me and I stayed with him during the summer. When he and I came to college this fall things began happening and I've had quite a few experiences in the last few weeks. Then the seniors took me out to McNichols for a peaceful two weeks. The student council asked for me to be brought in and so I was. I'm just waiting now for something to happen. I know we'll have lots of fun once things get started again. So, be 'patient and I will too. I'll he seeing many of you in the days to come, so fftudy up my rules and get ready for some real excitement cause that's what I thrive on. What's Bruin. Well, I am.
Reminiscent Roberts Revives Research; Ex-Editor Examines Whisker Population By Dr. Arthur O. Roberts
It was Bernard De Voto, I believe, who once wrote, "one man's meat is another man's poison." In lifting this little tidbit from the 1943 files of The Crescent I recognize that although forms of humor remain fairly constant, content, alas, greatly varies. My compatriots considered this passably funny and begged (this is poetic license) for more. If this strikes you as frightfully naive simply use the wind to inflate your own ego: It is refreshing to note Progress. Derive some satisfaction from noting that the professor in his college days refused to allow assignments to impede his extra-curricular education. The Scientific Attitude was no doubt aroused by dissections in Miss Sutton's biology lab! At any rate, Florene Price, editor, wanted me to dig up a nostalgic-scented flower, in deferrenee to The Old Days. In a statistical research conducted recently at Weesner hall scientists Willcuts and Roberts compiled some figures on the growth of whiskers. Willcuts acted as the subject. One whisker, at the rate of growth of 1/32 of an inch per, day would grow to a length of 11 and a half inches in a year; and in the course of 50 years would reach a length of 48 feet if his grandkids didn't pull it out before then. If all the shaving of his 33,609 whiskers were saved over a period of 50 years and placed end to end there would be a string of 31.2 miles in length or about as far as Newberg to Portland and around Meier and Franks a dozen times. If all these whiskers were placed in a mound the dimensions would be 894.5 cubic feet or enough to pack in Mr. Weesner's garage if you left the door open, with maybe a basketfull left over to start a fire with in the morning. And if the whiskers of all the fellows in school were saved every day there would be a string 300 feet long; if they were saved every day for a year there would be a string that would be 20 miles in length. No wonder all the drains in the country are getting plugged at one time or another. *This is unretouched; please observe that commas were invented later!

Alumni, Your Crescent Page Welcome to the campus, Alumni! Welcome to your page of the Crescent! In years past our problems, joys and grade cards were yours. You were the ones that rushed to 8 a. m. classes, made speeches in chapel, authored term papers— you were the students of George Fox college, alias Pacific college. The Crescent is reserving this page to help you remember how "it used to be" and to help, you recall fohd memories we have searched the corners and closets for the pictures you see here. Perhaps you will see a face that had not been thought of for years; perhaps you will see your self. Here are only a few reminders of the people who helped to make George Fox college history—-to each of you we say, "thanks" and "welcome home".

Sometimes a football field, with all its yard lines, goal posts and markers, is just taken for granted. How many of you have wondered where our new yard markers came from? Thanks for these markers should go to Ward Haines, long-time friend of the school, who graciously donated his time and effort to their construction. These large and easy-to-read signs have helped greatly in our home games this year. Thank you, Ward Haines. The recent 38-0 defeat of the Quakers by the OCE JV's wasn't nearly as one-sided as the score may indicate. Actually, until the last play of the game when OCE scored on a 55-yard pass play, the Quakers were only 15 yards behind the JV's in total yards gained from scrimmage. In almost every department except passing GFC came out a head.
The Quakers chalked up eleven first downs to eight for OCE; led in rushing 172 yards Steve Ross to 148, mainly on the strength of Dick Zeller's 107 yards from rushing; both teams completed nine passes but OCE had the most yardage from passing, 187 to 93. These statistics show that Ralph Becbe's boys were in there fighting all the time, and with a few of the breaks going our way the game might have been close.
We wish to welcome all our Homecoming guests to this afternoon's game. We do hope that win, lose or draw, you will enjoy the game. To you prospective football players who are looking for a place to play collegiate ball, may we recommend GFC. Although our school is small and the sports program isn't big league, our athletic department is sufficient to supply a wholesome, competitive outlet for your energy. About five or six years ago the George Fox football team was regularly playing the varsity of OCE, had one cross-state clash with Eastern Oregon college, and was generally on the level of the teams that are now in the Oregon Collegiate conference. Since that time these teams have become stronger and are leaving George Fox behind. Since the new change of administration the school has shown definite signs of growth, in enrollment, in scholastic possibilities, in the athletic realm. In a few years the idea of GFC once again playing the varsities of these larger schools will be considered. If you, and other fellows you know, would enter our school next year, we could make a great step in the building of a strong football team. See the possibilities that you can have in becoming a recognized star and in putting George Fox on the football map. A recent article in the Sports Illustrated, written by Robert M. Hutchins, called college football an infernal nuisance. Hutchins was the President of the University of Chicago when that institution dropped football in 1939. He claims that'schools should devote themselves to education, research, and scholarship and get rid of irrelevancies, no matter how attractive and profitable. Here at George Fox the idea of three-fold education is taught, that is, mental, physical, and spiritual development. It seems that Dr. Hutchins is making education mental only, as there appears that there is no spiritual life at Chicago. We know that athletics here often run in the red and aren't too attractive to the public, so there must be some other reason for our having them. Athletics at George Fox are for the purpose of letting each student develop into a fuil, whole individual. Students, let's make the most of oor gym facilities; parents, why don't you help support our athletic program; prospective students, get an education that will develop you in all three phases of life.

He also had a part in the dedication of the new education unit. He also spoke at the Ashland Friends church, where Rev. Ed Harmon, former faculty member of George Fox college, is ministering. An arrangement has been made with landscaping firms in this vicinity whereby George Fox college will give publicity to those who donate trees and shrubs for the improvement of the campus. The following companies have offered evergreens free to the college: Benedict Nursery, Oregon Nursery, Roth Nursery, all of Portland; and Iufer Landscape Company,' Salem.
A meeting of the long-range planning committee was held recently.

Those present at the meeting were: Robert Nordyke, chairman, Ivan L. Adams,. president of the board, Dean Donald McNichols, President Milo Ross, and Donald W. Edmundson, Portland architect. "The primary purpose of this session was that of considering and exploring the building needs in the light of college growth for the next twenty years," stated President Ross. "We considered not only the buildings themselves but groupings and campus developments, including a combination library and museum with a faculty lounge and seminar rooms and a combined auditorium and music building." Housing needs and future dormitory facilities for both men and women were also con-
sidereal. These proposals were submitted to Mr. Donald Edmundson, • who has been secured by the committee for professional advice and preliminary drawings. Dr. and Mrs. Floyd Albin, of Monmouth, Oregon, were recent visitors on campus. They are high school and college friends of President Ross and were his guests for an afternoon. Dr. Albin, head of the education department of the Oregon College of Education, spoke in chapel on the subject "Quo Vadis •— Whither Goest Thou," He emphasized the educational aspect of this topic.

Another committee is looking into the possibilities of beginning several high school clubs in the Newberg area.
