Valentine Royalty Architect Plans Future Campus Following accreditation there has been increased interest in campus growth and expansion. The campus renewal program which was originally planned in 1954 has undergone quite a number of changes. Architect Lindgren of Vancouver has been commissioned by the college board to submit blueprints of general planning as well as building specifications for approval, many of which are already in the hands of President Ross. The academic building pro-
gram encompasses a new library and museum, science hall additions, a chapel and fine arts building, rejuvenation of the present administration building as well as some additions of class rooms. In the northeast canyon area there is a proposed amphitheatre for dramatic and other fine arts productions. Our living and social areas are slated to be among the first to take on a new appearance. First of all a new dormitory is to be constructed
Missions Theme of Meetings The annual G. F. C. valentine formal was held in the dining hall at 8:00, February 12. The theme, Showers of Hearts, was well carried out through the use of an actual shower of hearts suspended oh streamers tacked to the ceiling. The front part of the hall was decorated with red and white streamers and bunches of pussy willow blooming with bright red hearts. To start the program Francis Whitaker announced a game and chose four couples to play. The couples were: Lillian Holton and Bayard Stone; Shirley Pierce and Howard Morse; Llyod Pruitt and June Hubbard; and Dan Nolta and Judi Retherford. The object of the game was to describe your date, starting each word with a letter from Valentine. Some of the words were not to flattering but it was all done in fun. After the games, M. C. Dave Fendall took over and announced the entertainment. Jack Hamilton and Marilyn Pearson sang a duet, followed by a reading-pantomine by Judi Retherford. Mike Hathaway, Gunnar Ingman, and Kay Johnson played an instuemental. Jan Burnett took over next with a solo. Then Herschel Thornburg played the piano and organ and did a magic trick. The first part of the program was climaxed by the coronation of the King and Queen of Hearts, who Were Barbara Morse and Dan Rob-' erts. They were crowned by Dan Nolta after which Dorothy Oppenlander played harp music for the Queen. After this there was a break in the program in
SOEA Meeting Twenty members and guests were present Thursday noon at the college library for the luncheon meeting of the SOEA. Guest speaker for the meeting was Dick Sorrick, Director of Teacher Education and Certification for the State of Oregon, who was introduced to the group by SOEA President Dick Bishop. Mr. Sorrick spoke on the present need of teachers within the state in comparison to the past need, and of certification plans for Oregon teachers. There is a need for teachers in English and in foreign languages at the present time. It is the aim of the state to reduce the number of certificates now required to one certificate for teachers. This is a five year program which is now in process.
New Students The new semester has begun with an enrollment of 132 students. There are four new students, six transfers, and five former GFC students who are returning. The new students are Bud Green, Dundee; Lyle Zeller, Tigard; Joseph Long, Continued on page 3
which refreshments were served. After refreshments LaVerne Poet sang a solo. Jamie and Jerry Sandoz played a trumpet duet. Bev Baker gave a reading on married life, and Paul Baker did an impersonation. The Swordsmen quartet then sang two songs. The program was closed with devotions led by Reverend Weens.
The annual Missionary Emphasis week, sponsored by the Foreign Missions Fellowship, has witnessed another week of challenging messages. This year's speakers were provided by the Oregon Yearly Meeting iMission Board. In all there were four services which were in unison with the topics chosen for each day; To all men—By all means.>—With all power—In all haste. The theme that was chosen for the week was "All for Christ". The meetings were held during the regular chapel period and on Wednesday eve-
Young Friend Visits G. F.
Miss Fran Warren of Wilmington, Ohio, was on the George Fox college campus from February 9 to February 11, representing the Young Friends Committee of North America. She is traveling over the United States and parts of Canoda on a visitation tour to survey the organization's outreach and usefulness to young Friends throughout North America and, where it is not well-known, to introduce the Young Friends Committee to college age Friends. Miss Warren has visited -many colleges and groups of young Friends prior to her visit at George Fox. On her tour, which began in September 1959, she has visited young Quakers in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona, California, Washington, a n d Oregon. She will be traveling and visiting until next September and has yet on her itinerary Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, ' Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington D. C , New England, and Canada. She has visited both public and private colleges. Some of the Friends colleges she has visited are Wilmington College in Wilmington, Ohio; Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana; Friends University in Wichita, Kansas; Friends Bible College in Haviland, Kansas; and Whittier College in Whittier, California. Miss Warren is a 1959 graduate of Earlham College and
was previously co-clerk of the Young Friends Committee of North- America: «• >•* The Young Friends Committee of North America was formed in 1954 by young Friends concerned with uniting all young Friends in North America and deepening their spiritual lives. This organization fills the gap between Friends groups which are primarily for adult Friends. It represents young Friends from eighteen to thirty years old and is composed of all Friends this age in North America who are interested in better contact between the college-age Friends of America. This committee is divided into five sub-committees: (1) conference planning, (2) periodicals, (3) Inter-visitation, (4) volunteer service, and (5) East-West contacts. The conference planning subcommittee plans the biennial conferences of the Young Friends in North America. The last conference was held in late August of last year in Junction City, Kansas. At this conference were 175 young collegeage Friends representing 24 Yearly Meetings. The next conference is planned for August 1961. The periodical sub-committee publishes the monthly newsletter of the organization. This includes a calendar of events for all young Friends in North America and articles written by Friends youth about their activities and thoughts. The inter-visitation sub-committee arranges overnight hospitality in Friends homes for any young Friends who are going long distances to conferences. It also sponsors teams or individuals with a concern for visitation among Friends. The volunteer service subcommittee serves as a clearing house for any young Friends interested in doing volunteer work within the Society of Friends. This includes work camps, Christian education work, and assistant pastoral work. The East-West contacts subcommittee was started to show Christian love for people in Communist countries and to aid understanding of people and problems involved in relations of the West with the East. In August 1958 it sponsored the Continued on page 2
ning prayer meetings. On Tuesday morning Everett Heacock, a Portland business man who just completed a world tour with Gerald Dillon, pastor of First Friends in Portland, spoke on the topic "To all men". He played a tape of an interview with one of the Portland radio stations that he and Gerald Dillon had. Then he spoke of his trip and the challenge he received as he traveled to various missions. On Wednesday morning Walter Lee, president of the Mission Board brought a very challenging message on the topic "By all means" Wednesday afternoon, Roscoe Knight, a returned mis-j sionary from Bolivia, showed some pictures of the work in Bolivia. Wednesday evening more pictures were shown by Ralph Chapman, also a returned missionary from Bolivia. A panel w a s formed, so that students could ask questions about missions, by various missionaries. In closing Dean Gregory, General Superintendent of Oregon Yearly Meeting, spoke on the topic "With all power". On Thursday morning Roscoe, Knight spoke on the topic "In all haste," which w a s very challenging. Counseling periods were provided for the students who were interested in being missionaries and wanted to know more about it. Walter 'Lee was in charge.
Expansion Money A new men and womens dormitory and 12 motel type apartments for married students will be the first of several structures to be built as part of the George Fox college expansion program. January 2'8th, the executive committee of the C611ege Board of Trustees commissioned P r e s e n t Milo C. Ross to deal with Home and House Finance agency of Seattle. He w a s authorized to have an architect draw plans for a new Men and womens dormitory and 12 apartments for married students. President Ross visited the agency and found that since being accredited George Fox college will be able to borrow up to $500,000 dollars with the only additional security, besides the mortgage on the new building, being $45,000 market value of the endowment. The new dormitory will have two wings, one for women the other for men with a lounge separating the two living areas. Stationary desks, beds and other furniture will be some of the construction features. The dormitory and married students apartments will be constructed at the south end of the campus overlooking the canyon. A parking area for 200 cars at the south end of the campus is another of the projects included in the expansion program.
which will house men in one wing and women in another and a common social hall located in the central area. This will later become a male residence hall only, after a new women's hall is constructed. There will also be aditions to the present student union building to accomodate our rapidly expanding student Body. N e w apartments for married students will be constructed along a picturesque, newly constructed canyon road. Also, a new dining haU will follow which will be much more modern and up to date than our present structure, and will be able to accomodate many more persons. A two hundred-car parking lot will be located near the residences and dining area for easy accessibility. The athletic department will also benefit from our building program'me. Our present gymnasium will be added to as well as undergo rejuvenation. Encompassing the football field will be a quarter mile track for increased track events. In addition to this there will be a tennis court which is to be constructed within the very near future. Plans are already being made for its construction.
Larger Grants George Fox has reorganized it's scholarship program. Before this year any entering freshman who had graduated in the top ten per-cent of his " class received a $100 grant. Under the new program this honor grant will be $200. The administration has eliminated the scholarship to the student with the highest acedemic standing in each class. In place of this award, $200 will be granted to any student who finishes the school year with an acumulative grade average of 3.4 or better. This would make it possible for a student to obtain, $800 in scholarships in his four years at college. Last fall the scholarship board set 2.5 as the minimum grade point average at which a student could maintain a scholarship. This action was the first step by the board in establishing the new policy. Dr. Ross said that this action by the administration was an effort to meet the rising cost of education. The policy of granting honor scholarships to all who maintain a 3.4 will provide aid for several students who would not have received it under the old plan.
Ross Attends Meet Dr. Milo Ross will be attending a trustee's workshop February 17-19 with Ivan Adams, Chairman of the Executive Council of the Board. This workshop is to be held in the Sheraton Hotel in Portland, where expenses will be paid by the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations. The Council for Financial Aid to Education, Inc., is the sponsor of this meeting. The fundamental idea of the workshop is to underline the importance of the trustee to the college. It defines the position he holds-one of interest, but no officiousness. Perhaps most important, it outlines the financial aid and advice the t m s t e e in professional work is able to give.
This is the first issue of the Crescent this school year that has not had an engagement announcement. What has happened to the leap year custom girls ?
Sunday School Grows Rapidly By DABLBEN STANDS Eight miles out of Newberg is a little Catholic community called St. Paul. Seven of the students from the college have •been going out each Sunday morning and folding a Sunday School in the St. Paul Grade School Gymnasium. E d w i n Cammack is Sunday School Superintendent and is in charge of the work under the direction of the American Sunday School Union. Others going out from the college are: Phil Sober, David Cammack, Marie Schmelzer, Viola Johnson, Marlene McConnel a n d Darleen Stands. Edwin's father, Forrest Cammack, drives in from Salem each Sunday morning to teach the adults. Recently a social was held for people in the Sunday School. There were about fifty people present. All enjoyed a good time which included a volleyball game, group games and pictures of Bolivia shown by Forrest Camack. The ladies of the Sunday School served coffee, punch and cookies for refreshments. On January 30 the Sunday School teachers atended a Sunday School convention in Dallas, Oregon. Many helpful suggestions were obtained. Also devotional messages were given by Reverend McFarling. Everyone has been encouraged by the progress which the Sunday School has made. The Sunday School was started on September 27, 1959 with an attendance of fourteen. The first Sunday in February there were fifty present and the second Sunday of the month fortyseven attended. To help the attendance grow even more, a contest has been started with Eidridge, which is a Sunday School about the size of St. Paul. The contest is to last for six weeks. Whoever wins is to be the guest at a party which will be sponsored by the losing Sunday School. Some of the plans for the future are to start visitation among the people who attend, to reach them for Christ so that they may continue the work out at St. Paul, and to eventually build a little church so that a more worshipful attitude can be attained.
Campus Visitor Continued from page 1 visit of three young Russians who traveled for a month with five young Friends in the United States. In the summer of 1959 this sub-committee sent four young Friends of the United States to Europe where they visited in England, Germany, Austria, and Poland, primarily with young European Friends. In this way it is striving to improve East-West relations. Last year the organization began to wonder if it was meeting the needs of young Friends thoroughout North America. It realized that the young Friends who might be interested in it were not being reached. As it began to question its usefulness as an organization it found that the needs of local groups of young Friends were not understood. The problem of different needs in various areas and the distrust of the Friends of the western United States of eastern Friends were brought to its attention. Out of this selfscrutiny came Miss Warren's visitation tour which will survey the outreach of the Young Friends Committee of North America and introduce it to those young Friends whom it can help by Improving understanding and contacts between young Friends. Miss Warren said of her visit on the George Fox campus, "I am impressed with the friendly atmosphere. I enjoyed visiting the classes and getting to know the students and •faculty. I hope this will be the beginning of a helpful exchange of ideas and concerns between your college and the committee. I feel very much at home visiting Friends and am reminded of a Jamaican young Friend's statement that as Friends we have a common Friend in Jesus."
President Notes Disipline To a person who is somewhat older than the average collegian, a student body can be divided into a number of categories, but the one of interest for the subject at hand is the classification of those who discipline themselves and those who do not. Having said that, I should qualify the statement by adding that discipline is not a fixed state, nor is anyone perfect, nor is anyone devoid of the possibility or opportunity to change, improve or even deteriorate. No doubt each person possesses some elements of mental and physical discipline. There appear to be cycles of more or less discipline, too, as one matures out of childhood and into adulthood. One often hears parents speaking proudly of a ten-year-old who is up to breakfast, or a fifteen year old who does his homework without prodding, and yet the same parents may later lament over the same youth, who when they are old enough to secure a good job or to take other responsibility, cannot be roused until noon on Saturdays or who sullenly fail to communicate. The slow and easy-going lad, upon getting married, controls •his habits and becomes responsible in a day. A girl who may be slovenly in house care or personal habits, is married and eventually has a little family, and yet grows into a fine mother and a good housekeeper. A boy who has been reared without too much parental controls may be very strict with his own sons later in life. All of which show a constantly changing pattern. The upheaval which many youth face on leaving home and attending a residental college is that external controls must be substituted by personal controls. There is no helping hand on the laundry. There is no one to call you 'umpteen times for breakfast. There is no one so indulgent as to re-set the table if the particular brand of cereal is not multi-colored or saccharine sweet. No one urges you to get the library books before the library closes. No one is available to suggest that the room should be cleaned before going to town. No one lines out a schedule in order to get the research over and the writing done in time for the term paper. There is really no special medal struck for having stayed up all night to study IF you frittered away your time for weeks beforehand! Perhaps each of us has looked to one or more persons as ideals in their having achieved a measure of personal discipline. They always appear poised, self-contained and prepared. They do not rob others of their time. They are able to accomplish more. It nas been said that a person has time to do the things he wishes to do. I challenge that statement. I do not think it is true. What with the expanding vistas of knowledge today, it becomes increasingly more difficult to com-
prehend or even study more than tantalizing fragments of what may be of interest. If King Solomon wrote of the frustrations of not being able to keep up with the writing and reading of books, what about today? May I suggest, however, that each of us can improve our situation in regard to personal discipline by a little self-analysis and a few firm resolves put into action. Tackle one or two or three areas of personal displeasure. Have you put off reading a book ? Have you neglected your prayer life? Have you failed to write down that couplet of poetry which rang so beautifully when you first thought of it? And now it has slipped away. Have you neglected a regular program of exercise which you have reason to think would be beneficial? Establish some regularlity in only a few places, and then after the habits have become established, work on to othfer positions and situations. Progress is the theme. Let us not be as some of our confreres who have jeopardized their entire college careers and their futures by 'a " F " in a prerequisite course, for a transcript is a pretty final instrument! "He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he than taketh a city." Prov. 16:32.
A student organization originating in Yale sponsored a colloquium during fall term which may set a pattern for campuses throughout the nation. The colloquium was sponsored by CHALLENGE, a Yale student organization, and served as the climax of the fall CHALLENGE program. The group was started last spring by students who reacted against what has long been considered the conventional student role. These students were no longer content to remain within the accepted perspective w h ic h forced them to view the world in an abstract, isolated, and thoroughly unproductive fashion, a perspective which they felt taught them a glib sophistication, but which prevented students from confronting or understanding either themselves or the forces* shaping their country and their world. Unwilling to tolerate as their only possible alternatives an intellectual retreat from reality or a trusting acceptance of the 'ideas of their society, they started CHALLENGE, "a program to confront with realistic concern and responsible action, the crucial issues of today's world." Insisting upon the inescapable pertinence of society's problems to Ameri-
Fair and Fowl Feathered Friends By HOWARD MORSE According to recent studies, the newest phylogenetic organism around our little "Walden of Herbert Hoover" is the Hairy chested Blow Bird." This fowl creature is no slog and isn't often found in the areas of mean background. This strange beast is obsessed with the ideology that the most important thing to accomplish is to conceal the true shabby vulture of his inner being. He may often be seen assisting the curly crested fan tail through the niche of the big hollow tree in the kanyon. The stern curvature of his sedate bill seems to soften somewhat as she giggles in delight at the pseudo-Philic galantry of our chivalrous imitation of Sir Walter. As the night closes in on the Kanyon, Miss Dicky Bird is faithful in collecting glow worms to light the way for true romance at the portal of the famous Diamon - PotassiumChlorate works (match factory). From a high up knot hole a sigh is heard from a well traveled parakeet who has never so much as twittered with a fine feathered fowl of opposite dymorphism. (travel is broadening). Ha! While you have been reading that last paragraph, Brother Hairy was making use of his lifto shoes. . . All the way back to his home in edgewoods hole, Hairy managed to sterotype a perfect call of his species. For a moment Hairy( and not Sir Walter or old crow
Win Wife and Woes By SAM MORSE You are probably wondering what right I have to this paper. Well, I'm not a student but I figure I've got as much right as anyone. You see, my wife is in school. I used to be a student myself and, like all the rest, I thought it a terrible grind. But you haven't started to suffer. Here's what it's like to be married to one. You get up at 6:00 a.m., get your own breakfast, pack your own lunch and go to work, leaving your wife in bed. You slave away all day trying to make enough money to pay all the bills and keep your wife in school. Even with a budget that isn't easy. Now, this should be enough to expect of any American citizen, and he deserves a warm house and the proverbial "pipe and slippers" on returning to the nest—but not so. You come plodding home at 6:00 p.m. The house is beginning to thaw. You hear a vague "hi" from some distant corner where the wife is just beginning to get supper, so you

decide to settle down with a magazine. (If you can find the chair, that is). But alas, there is no peace. From the first "please see about the fire" to the last "dump the garbage, Dear" she keeps you on the run. Supper over, you settle again in your chair—but not for long. "Honey, would you rather do the dishes or read my history to me?" It's not a difficult decision, but the thing I can't figure out is why I'm still reading three hours after the dishes are done. Well, the hours pass, and you finally find yourself toddling off to bed. As you quickly doze off you hear her saying. "I'm so tired. Sometimes I don't think it's worth it." Really now, I learn more than my wife does. I have to read her psych and explain her math. And when she graduates I'm sure I'll have earned a "joint-degree". In case you're contemplating a plunge into the stormy sea of matrimony, let me give you some advise—go ahead and jump! It's worth it. Just ask any man who has.
or any other dubious dignitaries. But then, no one was looking at him but some shrewd Albatros returning from a bird's eye view of a Platyhelminth (Jack Benny). But was that going to put in place all those ruffled feathers? The best thing to«do in such a situation is just to forget the whole chicken-pickin' thing. The proof that American College students will read anything which does not particularly pertain directly to learning is hereby firmly established. If you have read thus far, your mind is obviously gasping at any possible source for the solution to all your psycho-ceramic (cracked pot) tendencies. Perhaps one hundred years from now your great grandchildren will read this article and very definitely discover what was behind the writing and just exactly why each word was used as it was. HATCH! I now take great pleasure in Jiispelling all such idealistic theories and state with sound body and mediocre mental capacities that each and every word thus far written in this passage was not premeditated as an incubated egg or a smoking volcano, but was merely a collected group of tangent, verbose, phraseologies set down in print for the sole, unadulterated purpose of filling in the column which would have been refreshingly clear of print had I not stayed up so early this morning wearing out the point of my pen and your patience. "Don't expect God to use you as a lighthouse somewhere else, if He can't use you as a candle where you are." "Some students drink at the jtjjuntain of knowledge, others *"'just gargle."
can youth, CHALLENGE is dedicated to awakening students from the indifference and self-centered apathy produced by their sense of estrangement and isolation and providing a vehicle through which college students can re-establish contact with the dynamic forces of the present and the future. At Yale, £he organization has instituted a varied program of outstanding lectures by noted public figures, informal talks by leading faculty members, and' a half-dozen weekly discussion seminars, each aspect of this program being intended to provide a new way of viewing and understanding a general theme For its first term theme, CHALLENGE considered the topic, "The Challenge of the Nuclear Age," in a full schedule which lasted from September through the December colloquium. The program was initiated with a debate between Norman Thomas and William Buckley, Jr., on the subject of nuclear tests and disarmament. This debate was shortly followed with speeches by Dr. Jerome Frank, a noted psychiatrist, who viewed the psychological problems of easing the cold war, James P. Warburg, wellknown political analyst, who discussed America's vested interest in the arms race, and Professor Walter Burns, of the Cornell political science department, who argued that world government would destroy American democracy. In between these lectures, distinguished Yale faculty members were pointing out how Amerifcan attitudes toward depen7 dent peoples, alien cultures, and disarmament were vital factors for survival in the nuclear age. Discussion groups sponsored by C H A L L E N G E sprang up around the university, and students were soon beginning to think for themselves about the arms race, its implications, and its alternatives. CHALLENGE, however, i s not limited to Yale, for the organization plans to spread the movement to every college in the nation. Though to the casual observer this may seem overly ambitious, CHALLENGE has already caught the imaginatin of thousands of students throughout the East, Midwest, and South, many of whom are starting similar programs at their own colleges. CHALLENGE organizations at Yale, Smith, Stephens, Antioch, Wiscousin, Reed, Chicago, Oberlin, and Princeton are looking forward to even more stimulating and comprehensive spring schedules, and anticipate an increasing number of students all over the country to join in the movement. The next colloquium, scheduled for March 11, 12 and 13, in New Haven, will consider "Modern American Democracy; Its Myths and Realities." The first step of the CRESCENT in promoting this type of thinking on our campus will be a series of articles written by national leaders in various fields. This is made possible through a syndicated challenge column.

Fall Students to Fill New Forms Since its accreditation, George Fox College h a s been progressing in m a n y ways. W i t h all of its plans for a new library, new dormitories and other buildings, we can see t h a t fut u r e development is the keynote of the entire campaign. There are new developments in "old established" places also. This semester m a r k s t h e insurance of the most adequate application form the Office of Admissions h a s ever had. If the r e a d e r wil think back, he will remember the old yellow and green mimeographed sheets t h a t were used when he w a s applying for admission a t GFC. These old forms were quite inadequate in t h a t they did not contain sufficient information for t h e director of Admissions to " k n o w " the prospective student. The new admissions application is an eleven p a g e booklet. The first six pages of this form are to be filled out b y the student. These consist of a certificate of admissions, personal-information, general behavior family background, and education. A page and a half requires information on the s t u d e n t ' s participation in activities, and the last page h a s blanks to be filled in about work and scholarship applications and t h e stu-
"dent's finincial s t a t u s . The last five pages a r e personal references and evaluation sheets. These a r e n o t to be fflled in by the student. The first of these sheets is to be completed by a pastor, George Fox alumnus, or an individ,ual who knows the applicant and the standards of the college. The next form is to be filled in by the students principal or guidance counselor. The last in t h e series is to be completed, by a classroom teacher familiar with the student. These last two forms a r e personal avaluation sheets with the information recorded on them k e p t in s t r i c t confidence. In each of these cases the person who fills o u t the blanks will evaluate the a p plicant's qualifications on t h e basis of t h e following t r a i t s : scholastic capabilities, communication facility, initiative and industry, social conduct, emotional stability, peer relationships, influence and leadership, integrity, and purpose. W i t h the above information and the requirement t h a t t h e prospective student have a medical examination before coming to the campus, t h e staff in fhe Office of Admisions can feel t h a t they "know" t h e student before Jie becomes p a r t of t h e George Fox family.
F o u r GFC students take the top honors of having the highest GPA t h a t could ever be obtained in college. Sophomores, Ruthellen Hinshaw, Sydney Jackson, and Marilyn Richey, and freshman, Marilyn W i n t e r s received all A's during the fall semester a t George Fok. T a k i n g the top honors for the senior class w i t h ' a 3.97 w a s Ron Worden, a transfer from* Friend's Bible College in Havialand, Kansas. Damon Heinrich w a s not far behind with a 3.65. Others t h a t followed w e r e : Paul Cammack, 3.40; E d n a Whisehunt, 3.31; Dale Campbell, 3.25; Eugene McDonald, 3.23; and M a r g a r e t Camack and Jo Wohlford, each w i t h 3.00. Howard (Spike) Morse led the Junior class with 3.64. N a n c y Craven and Geraldine Morse were second with 3.60.

Both games to be played this weekend, Multnomah in. Portland and Reed College to be played here Friday night, affect our standing in only the one league, the Metropolitan league. The Quaker 5 has previously beaten both of these teams by narrow margins. With some of the Quaker star players being accademically benched the tide could be turned this weekend. However the odds still in my mind favor the Quaker.
With the hair fringed outs 'villes from Reed coming to our campus this Friday evening our school and campus are again in for a treat—ment. The bell thieves from beat-dom who have amused the students of our campus many times before with their hilarious, and wierd antics will no doubt be the court jesters for their hosts again. Let's all give the intellectuals a warm and friendly welcome so that we might be favored again in the future with a laugh filled visit from the hairy ones of nowhere'ville.

Professor Utley Sings Valentines Mr. Utley, professor of music, presented a unique Valentine's Day program for the student body in chapel, Friday, February 12. He called several couples to the front of the auditorium separately, g a v e them a big valentine, and sang a love song to them. The first victims were Ken Kumasawa and Patsy Retherford. In the absence of Ken, Patsy stood before the laughing audience during the seemingly never ending "I Love You Truly", holding a big red heart which read, "Ken Loves Pat." By singing "Sweet Sue", Mr. Utley indicated that Jack Hamilton and Sue Hopp were the next couple to be called to the front. The song, "Susie, Susie, Give Me Your Answer,

Do", was dedicated to them as they held a heart labeled "Jack loves Sue." Larry Houston and Shirley Sharpless received a valentine with two large hearts bearing the inscription, "For my valentine, Shirley, from Larry." The audience enjoyed their embarrassment to the strains of "One Alone." "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" was sung to Ron Freshour and Marilyn Richey who calmly held a valentine reading, "Marilyn and Ron." One of the students made a fast exit out the back door at the sound of the first notes of "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean." After being retrieved by a fellow senior, Chuck Newkirk, with a red face, stood in front of the student body alone in the absence of his friend, Bonnie Kneutsen. Duane Comfort and Sherrill Hull reluctantly walked to the front of the auditorium to receive a valentine on which was written, "Duane plus Sherrill." "Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes" was the song dedicated to them. "Be My Valentine, Marilyn. From Steve," was written on the heart with which Steve Wilhite and Marilyn Pearson covered their faces while Mr. Utley sang to them. The couple that was the most surprised was Student Body president, Dan Nolta, who had given Mr. Utley permission to call forth the above couples, and Judi Retherford. Stating that he wished to sing a wedding song to them, he sang "Because". Their valentine contained two hearts for "Judi and Dan", with the words, "Two hearts that beat as one."
