GEORGE FOX COLLEGE, NEWBERG, OREGON
Governor Cites G.F.C. Progress Governor Mark Hatfield emphasized the need for higher education with Christian ideals such as George Fox college upholds, in an after-dinner speech before the college board, faculty and staff members Saturday, December 5. Some of the things noted as necessary to the improvement of the college were efficiency and expansion of educational facilities. Mr. Hatfield spoke of the vicious circle of not being able to attain accreditation for lack of funds, and not being able to get funds because we lacked accreditation. He gave credit to the Council for Advancement of Small Colleges for helping us gain accreditation.
According to the Governor, there is a state scholarship program to help capable students who, without this aid, would not be able to attend college. The student is allowed to choose the school he wishes to attend whether it is public or private. With student increase in Oregon higher education in the last ten years of from 13,000 to 20,000 in public institutions and from 6,000 to 7,000 in private college, we must constantly keep in mind what kind of job the school intends to do. Facilities themselves do not insure good education. Dedicated faculty members with the spirit of education are needed to send out students with high
Lindgren Campus Planning Architect Project Work Starts Immediately Architect Donald H. Lindgren of Portland was on the George Fox college campus December 22 to survey the present buildings and plans for future buildings. He has been appointed by the college board *of trustees to plan all future construction for George Fox college. Lindgren will work on several projects immediately. He will finish such undone details of the student union building as the landscaping. He is also making drawings of t h e student u n i o n building for publicity purposes. Several college magazines have asked for drawings of this building which have not before been available. Lindgren is alÂ§o to plan thp projects of the classes of 1960 and 1961. The present campus development plan will be revised to better fit the present and future needs of the college. The preliminary investigation for drawing a plan of a new library is being done by a faculty committee whose members are: Genette McNichols, D r. Arthur Roberts, Prof. Harvey Campbell, Prof. Paul Mills, and Prof. Hector Munn. They are visiting various college and public libraries to find what features to incorporate to best advantage in the new library. These investigations will be reported to Lindgren who will include the desired features in the final plans. A new dormitory is being planned with one wing for the men students and another wing
for the women students. This will be financed through the Home and Housing Finance, association. The music, drama, speech, and religion departments will be housed in a new music and fine arts building. This building will have an auditorium with a seating capacity of 400-500 persons. A remodeling of Wood-Mar Hall is also being- planned. These activities are evidences of the planning for the future of the college which has been done by the board of trustees of George Fox.
ideals, Mr. Hatfield stated. An investment in George Fox college is not just an investment in brick and mortar for it is a school dedicated to Christian education. According to Mr. Hatfield, Khrushchev may have his Russian god of Materialism on their side, but we have the true God here at George Fox. A young person from a Christian school such as George Fox knows and practices ideals; education such as this is of national need. In closing, Governor Hatfield stated that although we have taken a great step forward by gaining accreditation, we still have far to go. Before the Governor's speech, the choir sang "It's a M o s t Unusual Day", "And The Glory of the Lord", and "The L o rd Bless You and Keep You." Following these numbers, the ladies from the local Zion Lutheran church served a banquet to faculty, staff, and college board members. After dinner, Dr. Ross, president of the college, introduced the speaker. Mr. Hatfield stated at the beginning of his address that Dr. Ross had made two announcements at the afternoon board meeting. The first was that the choir would sing before the banquet so the boys could play basketball; the second was that if the speaker were brief, everyone could go to the second game. Therefore he obligingly made it brief and finished his speech just as the first game ended.
Party Features Foreign Themes Japanese lanterns and wooden shoes served to illustrate the theme of this year's Christmas formal, "Christmas Around the World". The banquet was sponsored by the Foreign Missions Fellowship with Ed Cammack as general chairman. Lyla Bury, Nancy Craven and Jerri Lou Andrews were in charge of decorations. Each table represented a different country. There were such countries as Japan, China, Holland, England, Germany, Canada, Italy, Holland, France, and religious theme. There were prizes given to the best decorated tables. T h e prize â€˘ for the best religious theme went to Dick and J o y Hays. Their table had the manger scene with a cross standing behind it portraying Christ's
birth and death. First place in the depiction of a country went to Ron Freshour and Marilyn Richey. Japan was the theme of their table. In the center was a beautiful Japanese doll with a Japanese fan spread out on either side of her. Hanging above the table were two Japanese lanterns completing the atmosphere of Japan. Second place went to Dave Cammack and June Hubbard. Their table portraying France had red candles set in white angel hair with an open Bible in front of the semi-circle of candles. Hanging above the table wera two large white bells. Gene McDonald was emcee during the program. A Negro children's choir from Portland sang several Christmas carols and (continued on page four)

Touring West Pointers on Campus; Cadets to Ponder Political Policy In September, 1959, Professor Peacock received a letter from West Point informing him that several cadets will be touring this area for the purpose of conducting discussion forums. Through correspondence, Mr. Peacock has been able to confirm a date for them to visit George Fox. On March 25, at 7:30 p. m., the West Point Cadets will present their program in Wood-Mar hall. The issue which they will be discussing is: "What ought to be the policy of the United
College Given $2,500 Grant A grant of $2,500 for life sciences equipment is announced by George Fox college, the check having arrived Monday from the Smith, Kline a n d French Foundation of Philadelphia. A personal request had been made by Dr. Milo C. Ross when he was in the eastern city in October, but the outcome of the interview w a s not known until this week. The Foundation is in connection with the important pharmacy house. It has elected to make its grants to the small colleges of the country, believing that its rather modest funds can go farther there than in grants to major universities. A l i s t of much-needed science equipment had been prepared by the science faculty, composed of Hector Munn, chairman of the division; Evan Rempel in physics, Floyd Weitzel in biology, and Miss Dorothy Oppenlander, instructor in mathematics.
States in regard to Southeast Asia?", with special emphasis on what can be done about the communist threat in these nations, and what to do about administering financial and cultural aid. Everyone is invited to attend and, for the listener's own benefit, is encouraged to read up on the subject before hand. There is going to be a question and answer period at the end which should prove interesting. Two or three GFC students will participate in this discussion. The forums are a traditional affair for the West Point Cadets. This year George Fox college is honored to be included in their itinery. Several colleges in the Portland area will also be favored with such a program.
Speech Contest George Fox college will be the host to an after-dinner speaking contest sponsored by the Intercollegiate Forensic Association of Oregon. This is the first time George Fox h a s been the host for this state competition. A banquet will be served at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 12. The speeches will be presented right after the dinner. The Intercollegiate Forensic Association of Oregon also s p o n s o r s an Experimental Speech tournament, Peace Oritorical contest, Extemporaneous Speech contest, and an Old Line Oratory contest. All of these contests are held in member schools in turn, George Fox, by virtue of membership in the I.F.A.O., will be host to each of these contests in the future, (continued on page two)
Committee Views Diamond Jubilee Traveling from many cities over the Northwest, the members of the George Fox collyege board of trustee met December 2 and voted on the recommendation for future development made by the "Idaho Committee." This committee was led by Glen Koch of Caldwell, and included Messrs. Swanson, Holmes, Willcuts, Lee, Antrim and Farmer. These recommendations were as follows: 1. To launch the "Diamond Jubliee" between now and 1966 when the college will be seventy-five years old. Gifts coming in will be considered a part of the "Jubilee." The administra-

tion was asked to perfect plans before the next board meeting in June. 2. To give priority to faculty salaries. They agreed to contract at $500.00 higher per annum for full time teachers, and establish a program for raises up to $1,500.00 by 1962. 3. To commission an architect to determine the cost of the building plan for the next several years. 4. To build the following in order: a library, at least one dormitory and adult housing, then a chapel and fine arts center proposed to contain religion, speech and drama, music and possibly art. They also plan to rid our library shelves of obsolete books and replace them with more recent, usable ones. The Honorable Mark O. Hatfield, governor of Oregon, addressed the board and faculty, speaking on the values of George Fox college. He was welcomed in as a new member along with T. Clio Brown, general superintendent of Rocky Mountain Yearly Meeting. The semi-annual meeting was a momentous one, filled with thanksgiving to God for answered pra5'er, especially for our granted accreditation. o

President Milo C. Ross of George Fox college will leave Sunday to attend educational meetings in Boston. First on the agenda is the annual meeting of the Council for the Advancement of Small Colleges which meets all day Monday, January 11, at the StatlerHilton there. Ross is a director. Following will be a two-day convention of the American Association of Colleges. Since the accreditation of the local college, it has been invited to join the association, which is expected to bo done at the convention. The third meeting is with the fellow members of the Friends college Presidents' Group. President Ross also plans to spend several days in the East in the interests of the college.
we Need Another Step During the past few months George Fox has taken many steps forward in playing its role as a Christian liberal arts college. We have achieved the long sought after and prayed for accreditation, our football team was invited to play a holiday game in Los Angeles, we have seen the science hall partially remodeled and many small things that all add up to make us proud of the fact that we are spending our college years at GFC. We could now sit back and look at the achievements with pride and say that now that we are recognized as accredited, we have it made; but do we? Do we have enough to count ourselves as a college to rank among the others? We have the necessary facilities to carry on the work of a college : buildings, books, and a dedicated faculty. It appears that we lack something. Is this something we lack our enthusiasm at ball games, is it a failing in our student government or in our faculty and administration? It is ndhe of these but it is easier to imagine that it is the general attitude of the students on our campus. Can most of us even call ourselves students. Is a student one that does something half-heartedly just because it is required that he get it done? Is a student one that spends an hour in study every night? The real student on our campus is the freak of our hallowed halls. The one that spends more than the "required hour" at the books is looked at as if he was spoiling our reputation as a college. To put it very bluntly, he is the "Oddball of Edwards Hall" or she is the "Queerest at Kanyon". It is about time that the "students" on this campus started asking themselves what they are doing here and what they hope to accomplish. At the recent OFCL conference things were seen that opened the eyes of the GF delegation to the fact that we are falling behind before we get started. We will never grow and we will never really improve until we find ourselves ready to look at this group of buildings and dedicated faculty as a college. The faculty and administration can't make a -college; they can help but the final decision as to where we are going is dependent on us as the "students of George Fox College". —D.N.
Library Use. Recommended By President Ross On Student Use of the LibrarySeveral years ago at a time when the library boasted only 15,000 volumes, a patron of the college refused to send her daughter to George Fox on the pretext that the library was not strong enough for the prospective student. The field man made this response to the lady's criticism: "May I suggest that your daughter come to the college, read the 15,000 books, and then we shall add whatever volumes may need to be accessioned for your daughter's needs'." According to" Dean F. A. Gilfillan, who now serves as chairman of the Higher Commission, many colleges suffer from a lack of student appreciation of the campus libraries. And according to him, only one college In the Nortwest seems to have "licked" the problem in enticing students to make a general and active use up to a maximum. He claimed to me that on one occasion he was on t h a t particular campus at 4 p.m. at the break-up of the class day, and the rush to the library was terrifying. Part of the pressure was caused by the clever use of faculty assignment, but the true pressure was internal and subjective, and an expression of the student body's desire to get all possible in four years. The analysis of the Visitation Committee on the use of the library by students was to the effect that there is a general disregard of the value of the library as a learning tool. While it is not a great library, it is far greater than the use suggests. Spot checks have been made which reveal that the full use of collateral reading helps is held at a minimum. Hundreds of choice volumes go unread. Excellent source materials are not discovered nor exploited by the great majority of students. An attitude seems to prevail that the text book is enough in too many cases. It should be admitted that the use of the library, month by month, and compared and contrasted with former years, reveals a much greater use, up
to 100 percent, over a like period five to ten years back. Progress is being made. The point is, however, that the sense of intellectual hunger needs to be whetted even more, and you in the student body have the key! Miss McNichols is a most excellent librarian. She knows her business! She has shown herself to be most helpful and cooperative. She is doing a wonderful job in making the library as attractive as possible. We hope to get involved within the next few months in financing and constructing a fine new fire-proof facility replete with many of the modern and accepted innovations and facilities. We hope to protect the unique and important Quaker collection, and add to the museum in an adequate manner. The faculty is working this winter and spring on & general project of replacing obsolescent volumes with more recent editions. The library budget has been increased 40 percent this year alone. These are activities in which the administration and-the faculty can assume leadership. But only student response can effectively use the library as it should be used.
Speech Contest (continued from page one) The topic for the men is "Status Symbols". Status symbols are important to every one in some form. The subtopics will illustrate the main topic. Some subtopics are: (1) Have you seen my new Cadillac ? (2) Have you seen my monogrammed shorts? and (3) The troubles I have with my picture window. The topic for the women is a topic which has been discussed almost since time began. This topic which is of interest to all is: "Battle of the Sexes". These speeches should be quite interesting as they include the following subtopics: (1) A woman president - that'll be the day. (2) Have eyelash, will travel. (3) Beware - woman driver, and (4) Why George, of course you wear the pants.
Dollars a n d Sense We in America today f i n d ourselves in the midst of a society which is becoming increasingly* money conscious. A person is judged by the number of digits in his monthly income, by the number and quality of the cars in his garage, by his house, and by other things of merely monetary value. Many times this is only a judgement of the willingness of the person to go in debt up to his ears. This obviously cannot be the true measure of a man. Are we as Americans putting t h e emphasis on the wrong syllable, so to speak ? Before we can decide what kind of an education to obtain it is natural that we must decide what we want out of life and where true values should be placed. Other countries of the world are looking to America today and laughing at our frivolous quibbling over material things when the rest of the world is worrying about problems more basic — about things which we have and seem to take for granted. We h a v e freedom and think nothing of it so now we must gratify our desires. The rest of the world is working sacrifically for freedom in one form or another. The Communists are dedicated to freedom from "capitalistic oppression". Their goal is universal equality by a method of pure animal husbandry. They have been described by their leaders as "dead men on furlough". All this is happening with a death-disregarding dedication while American college students study stacks of statistics to see w h i c h field will g i v e the biggest opportunity to make the most money and retire the earliest with the least work. Where, may I ask, is the determination and fight that our forefathers had when they pushed back the frontiers of the U. S. to give us this great country? Did it die with them? We of this generation are here for a purpose besides enjoying the things that have been handed to us as a result of others' labor. We must help the other countries of the world or the Communists will "help" them into their iron clad fold of atheistic materialism. But what can Americana do? Shall we educate the world's population? Shall we give them democracy? How about feeding them? We have tried these things. We have set up democracies in the various countries of the world. I am thinking now of Southeastern Asia with
its many small countries where the U. S. has helped set up democracies. What has happened? Because of the many social and economic problems brought on by democracy the countries have instead become anarchies and military rule has been resorted to with communism waiting to take over when that fails. Shall we educate the people? Education without God paves the way for Communism. The Communists put out a terrific challenge for the improvement of the world. The promise of a better civilization and a perfect world. Education alone can't cure the world. Neither can we feed the world. T h e s e other countries are not looking for a handout. They want to build themselves thrugh their own resources. This is the Nationalist s p i r i t which missionaries are facing today. What is the answer then? Christians have the answer in salvation through Christ. We have the challenge that t h e world is looking and waiting for. No Bible-believing Christian can become a Communist. The Bible says "Thou shalt not kill." The Communist say that the individual life is unimportant. The Bible says "love t h e Lord thy God with all thine heart." The Communists say there is no God. Everything must be for the good of the "party". We as students must forget the education that would prepare us to make the most money with the least effort. We are responsible to educate ourselves to tell others of t h e Christ-child who g a v e himself for us. We must forget t h e question "How much can we get?" and concentrate on the more important one "How much can we give?" If we do this our view toward education will certainly be different and our lives will count in saved humanity and not dollars and cents.
Betrothal Told The engagement of Karen L. Hegele to David Van Bergen, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Van Bergen of Gem, Alberta, Canada, was announced by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. Eugene Hegele of Scappoose, Oregon, during a party given in her honor the evening of January 1. No wedding date has been set Karen and David are students of George Fox college in Newberg, Oregon.
Professor Feels Teaching Is Call On December 1, 1908, a son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Preston and Emma Mills at Springbrook, Oregon. Professor Mills attended elementary school in b o t h Portland, Oregon, and Greenleaf, Idaho. His secondary education was completed at what is now Multnomah college. From here he went to North Pacific Bible Institute or since known as Cascade college. While attending Bible school Mr. Mills, with the help of his mother, built the church and parsonage at Rosemere and started the work. This carried over into the year after his graduation from Bible school. After his graduation he married Wilma Witham in February of 1931. Immediately after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Mills started for Woodland, Idaho, to start the Friends work there. Many are the interesting and funny experiences these two young people had. In spite of hard times and a community somewhat cold to the gospel, the Lord blessed in souls for His kingdom. At the end of four years service in Woodland the Mills' felt a call to Tacoma's McKinley Avenue Friends church. In 1936 their only child Genvieve was born. In 1939 Mr. Mills traveled, holding evangelistic meetings in various places. After a year of this the call came to go to Nampa Friends in Idaho. Quite a few obstacles had to be overcome here, but again the testimony comes of the Lord taking over and blessing in a mighty way. In addition to these years of preaching, Mr. Mills had been attending Pacific Lutheran while at Tacoma and N o r t h west Nazarene while in Nampa. He graduated from Northwest Nazarane with an A.B., Th.B., and M.Th. » Feeling the call of teaching
in service to his Master, Mr. Mills joined the George F o x faculty in 1947 where he has held a teaching position since. He is teaching the following subjects this year: literature of the Bible, homiletics, theology, and a reading and conference course in missions. In addition to this position he often preaches in various churches around the Oregon Yearly Meeting and has been active as a member of this committee. He also writes for the Northwest Friend and has written a pamphlet entitled Twelve R e a s o n s Why A Christian Shouldn't Participate in War. Perhaps you might think a teacher's tasks consist of classroom lectures and outside preparation. If this is your opinion a challenge is extended for you to ijSvestigate at the Mills residence for yourself.
With all of 1959 past but the bills, we approach 1960 with anticipation of things to come. The new year opens with bowl games, closely followed by more bills, old school work, and the hope of a successful election year. Along with the mixed emotions, this new year brings to the world of males a most terrifying custom, the bissextile year, or leap year. In case many of you have forgotten, leap year has 366 days. It seems that the astronomers of Julius Ceasar's day (46 B.C.) settled the solar year at 365 days 6 hours. The 6 hours a year makes a full day every 4 years, which is added to the fourth year. To quote the Encycolpedia Britannica: "The English name for the bissextile year is an allusion to a result of this interposition; for after Feb. 29 a date leaps over the day of the week." Also to quote Mary Lou Loper of the Los Angeles Times: "Where the custom for women to woo originated is a big question. Rest assured, however, the California State Bar says there is nothing on t h e books that makes it legal for a lady to hook a man." Considering the astounding number of engagements in the past year on our campus, leap year poses a terrifying problem to George Fox men. Though justily feared by moderns, it appears that this strange custom of allowing feminine proposals posed an even greater problem to freedom loving males of the past. In years gone by some European countries had laws allowing such proposals. In 1288, Scotland enacted a law that, "it is statut and ordaint that during the rien of hir maist bllssit Megeste, for ilk yeare knowne as lepe yeare, ilk mayden ladye of bothe highe and lowe estait shall hae liberte to bespeke ye man she likes, albeit he refuses to taik hir to be his lauful wyfe, he shall be mulcted in ye sum ane pundis or less, as his estait may be: except and awis gift he make it appeare that he is betrothit ane ither woman he then shall be free." Translated this means a young lady could propose, and if her boy friend declined he would forfeit a pound or less, unless he could prove that he was engaged to another. In the opinion of one eligible bachelor on campus, "It is a mans duty and privilege to court and win (if possible) the girl of his choice. Exceptions to the rule are those fellows who are extremely shy or backard in the ways of courtship. T h e women deserve this chance to express their choice and should use it to an advantage as it livens up the routine of dating."
Pledge Revealed A New Year's Day announcement of the engagement of their daughter Marly to Sidney Russell was made by Mr. and Mrs. Schoop of Salem. Sidney is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Russell, also of Salem. Marly is a nurse at the Salem Memorial hospital while Sidney is a student at George Fox college. An August wedding is planned by the couple.

Eisenhower Reveals Budget Excess The president's state of the union message was delivered to an enthusiastic congress yesterday. His 45 minute declaration of international policy^.and national economic and social needs was interrupted more than 30 times by applause. In his opening remarks he emphasized the adequacy of American defense. He stressed, however, that the United States would use her forces only in defensive measures. This statement of America's peaceful intentions drew a great ovation from the legislators. He pointed out that our advancement in the areas of nuclear powered ships and long range missiles played a great part in our increased defensive abilities. Progress was also reported in a separate missile program aimed at space exploration.
He then moved into areas of our national economy. He predicted a continuation of the present business upswing. This was closely followed by a plea to the congress for a new farm policy. He said that our present policy was constructed to deal with the problems of agriculture of the depression and the war years. Farm out-put per man hour has increased so greatly that these old farm laws are woefully inadequate. Concerning national budget he said that congress should plan a balanced budget this year and that we should look forward to paying on the national debt soon. This was well received by his audience. Mr. Eisenhower closed his message with a statement of faith and o*ptimism for our future.

Students -Hide Car
By Mackey W. Hill
The Administration closed the old year and began the new with at least two colorful feathers in its cap. The feather for the closing year was the 11 nations tour of President Eisenhower. It certainly raised the prestige of the Administration both at home and abroad. The second feather, and that for the new year, was the settlement of the costly steel strike. In this matter, VicePresident Nixon gets the main credit. He had been holding secret meetings from time to time separately with both labor leaders and representatives of management of the steel industry. With the prospects of the Federal Government taking a stronger hand either through Presidential or Congressional action the stalemated negotiations took on new life. Management was urged to be more agreeable in the face of the prospects of sustaining even greater losses. After the settlement both labor and management credited Nixon highly for the indispensable role that he played in this successful settlement. With the retirement of Nelson Rockefeller from the race for the GOP 1960 Presidential candidacy, it appears unquestionably that Nixon will be the choice. Nixon's role in the steel strike settlement enhances his presidential prospects considerably. The Democrats are perplexed with the problem of a superabundance of leaders who would be more than willing to head their party ticket in 1960. But there seems to be a scarcity of potential candidates with the much needed "stature" for this office. There are at least five senators who are willing and about five favovrite son governors who are in the race. President Eisenhower has revealed his plan to make a rather extensive tour through Latin America in the latter part of February. Red China is reported to have launched a program for the development of the atomic bomb with the likelihood of thus forcing her being accepted as a great power. It is not a very bright prospect that this aggressive nationalism poses for the coming decade or quarter of a century. When we realize World War I and H came out of the efforts and frustrations of European nationalism that had been held back, the contrived and intensified bitterness wrought such havoc what are the prospects from the titanic reservoir of hate and bitteriness in the Communist world against the Free World? Unless the Free World can rediscover those weapons which "are mighty through God to the pulling down of the strongholds of Satan" we well might suffer other defeats in 1960. Let us not forget in this struggle that "it is not by power nor by might but by My Spirit saith the Lord."
Senior Couple Recites Rites
Tuesday evening after choir practice Mrs. Storaker emerged from the music hall to find that her small foreign car was missing. Suspecting student pranks rather than anything really malicious, she set out to find the meandering auto. After a little "help" from students she discovered it in the dining hall lounge. The culprits then pushed it back out through the large doors where they brought it in. Mrs. Storaker was heard making comments like, "What if President Ross knew, "What this," or "What would the dean think about this."
The First Denver Friends church in Denver, Colorado, was the setting for the wedding which united Sally Meyer and Damon Helnrich, on December 29, a t two o'clock. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Meyer of Denver, Colorado. Two large candelabra with two baskets of red and white carnations in front, made the setting for the wedding which was attended by approximately 75 to 100 guests. The bride wore a white satin dress and carried a bouquet of
white roses with red rose buds. Bridesmaids wore red and green dresses with white hats and gloves, and carried bouquets of green and white carnations. Matron of honor, Majorie Hicks, c a r r i e d a bouquet of red and white carnations. Jack Hos-' kins served as best man and the bride's brother George Meyer was groomsman. A reception was held after the wedding for the guests. The wedding cake was a three layer cake with a bride and groom on the top. Mr. and Mrs. Heinrich are now living here in Newberg.

Sober'S Slant Christmas vacation is over, school has begun in the new year and once again our campus is a bustle of activity. This is true of every phase of school life. On the sport scene we find: That in basketball the Quakers are struggling hard to get on top. At present the Quakers stand with one win and five loss record. This however is not a bad record for the school because many of the teams that have been played rank with the best in their class in the Pacific Northwest. Also we must consider that several of the games were lost only by a narrow margin. The outlook for the remainder of the season I would say seems to favor the Quakers in all aspects. Thus far the Quakers have played only two games that count in league conpetition and one of them they have won. This means, that the Quaker five is by no means shut out of the race for the trophies of the two leagues in which they play. The GF club is on the final stages of reconstruction and is expected to be an actively functioning organization on the campus in the future. It is my personal opinion that an active men's athletic club on our campus and for that part the campus of any college will do more to boost athletics for that school than any other one factor. Intramural sports activities are about to begin. The following are expected to be included in the list of tournaments to be presented in the intramurals race this year. Ping pong, golf, tennis, basketball, volley ball. This is an excellent opportunity for self expression in class competition and individual competitions for those who do not have time to participate in a major intercollege sport on the campus. May I encourage at this opportunity every student to participate in one or more of the intramural sport activities this year that they (the activities) might be a complete success. Yes, this seems to be a time of new things and change—new start in basketball, new GF club, new ideas on intramural sports and a new year. Let's all make this year the best for George Fox college in every aspect.

played bass and piano.

Then the mood changed, a lighter type of music was introduced. "Deep Purple" by Peter de ed by playing "The Thunderer", E. Y. Harburg and Harold Arlen, were the two American folk songs presented. The band closed by playing "The Thunderer" a march. During the program the students were favored with two solos.

"The Big Fisherman" has been translated into 15 foreign languages. 'It presents Simon Peter first as a hot-tempered practical fisherman, and then as the great Apostle who changed the history of the world. In the play, Kara, an Arabian princess, young, happy and in iove with a handsome Arabian prince, learn from her dying mother the cruel treatment the mother suffered from Antipas, ruler of Jerusalem, after her marriage of state to him. Fara dramatically vows revenge. She then disguises herself as a boy, and sets off for Jerusalem, to avenbe her mother. Prince Voldi learns from a Greek slave the secrt of Fara's plans, and goes seeking her. Fara is robbed, but is rescued by John (later the Apostle), who brings her to the humble home of the Big Fisherman. There Fara hears angry talk of Jesus. Simon is disguised with the "sensation seekers" who constantly pour past his home to listen to Jesus' teachings. He is skeptical of the so-called miracles. Aren't they really faked? Simon both scorns and pities the ill and the maimed who are seeking this "faith healer". The play centers about these two: The girl who is to learn through many exciting events that Jesus' doctrine of forgiveness of enemies is better than the old teaching of "an eye for an eye"; and the series of crises that change Simon from a mere fireshman to Jesus' great Apostle, the fisher for men. It is a marvelous and significant work of drama.
