GFC Enrollment Nears 350 Mark Frosh Boast Largest Class With 121 George Fox college enrollment is near the 350 mark for the 1965 fall term, showing a three percent increase over last year's enrollment. The total figure stands at 346. The increased enrollment is attributed not only to a large freshman class of 121, but also to the high percentage of retention among the other three classes. The sophomore class of 88 lost over onefourth of their class, with the 67 juniors having lost only 15 of their classmates. The seniors lost seven percent, returning with 64 students. Six are listed as special students. This record number of students is an assemblage of nine states and two foreign countries, with 64 percent of the student body coining from Oregon. California and Washington are each represented by 40 students and Idaho by 24 students. The two foreign students represent Thailand and the Philippines.

GF Leaders Hear Gov. Hatfield At Breakfast Three George Fox college students attended the Collegiate Leaders Prayer Breakfast in Salem October 5. Representing GFC among the other Oregon colleges were Fred Gregory, ASGFC President; Kent Thornburg, SCU President; and Carolyn Harmon, CRESCENT editor. The Breakfast was highlighted with a speech by Governor Hatfield. His remarks were directed to student leaders, giving the qualities needed in a leader of today's world. He stated that one must look beyond his own horizon or "back-yard" and have the mind to transcend false and artificial boundries. One must also have the courage to stand up for his convictions —especially his religious convictions. Governor Hatfield emphasized the need of a leadership which recognizes the superiority of God and closed with these words: "Modern life begins when one dates his existence with God Incarnate, Jesus Christ." Preceding the Governor's speech were personal testimonies by Charles Powell, 1964-65 President of Associated Students of University of California at Berkeley and Mike Aldrich, Oregon State university. The breakfast is part of a voluntary movement of concerned lay men and students who have informally joined together to reaffirm their faith, and through mutual encouragement and example promote a renewed faith, renewed spirit and renewed hope in the hearts of men throughout the world.
Band, Choirs Expand Scope The George Fox music department is in a stage of expansion this year with some new and interesting plans for this fall term.

It is Only Once. . . Greetings to those freshmen who have somehow survived the trials of initiation and the first two weeks of classes. The CRESCENT staff welcomes each one of you to your first term at George Fox, and sincerely hopes that during this term you will discover the true meaning of college. As one editor put it, "College is the search for self, the finding of an ideal, the loss of childhood, the place in life. It is making friends and serving Christ. It is problems and answers and knowing who you are. And it is1 only for a short while. And it is only once." May each one of us strive to make the best of this term, this year, for truly, once gone, it can never be regained again. _CH
Quality and Christ In the interest of promoting the Christian emphasis of George Fox college and in the hopes of developing an informed, alert student body, this policy of The Crescent is adopted and printed. Emphasis: We hold that promoting a Christian testimony for GFC is a major goal of The Orescent. Coverage, content, and quality will be judged on this basis. However, college students should engage in, and harken to the exchange of ideas. The Crescent has a role in sounding out student opinion and in analyzing and presenting it. Content: The editor has the sole responsibility for the content of The Crescent and reserves the right to decide what is newsworthy. The staff feels the responsibility to both improve and to reflect campus life and attitudes as well as to cover activities and events. We strive to make the paper interesting and informative student reading. Journalism: The Crescent is intended in part, to be a learning experience for the members of the staff. Therefore we will be constantly striving to improve the quality of the paper. We shall strive also for excellence in technique and content. Quality will take first place in all policy decisions and will not be replaced by either student or printer pressure. Student Opinions: The student body of GFC finances and controls the production of The Crescent It is a student paper by and for the students. Letters to the editor are welcome at all times on all subjects but must be signed. The staff reserves the right to withhold and edit any letter. Complaints and suggestions regarding the paper should be brought to the editor rather than to individual staff members.

Yes, These Are Our Freshmen! S U E BOYCE For a week, the lovely campus of George Fox college, institution of quiet, quicker, Quakerly learning, somewhat resembled the campus of University of California at Berkeley. The cry of "WE SHALL OVERCOME!" resounded through the maple-leaf-covered halls 6i the dormitories, and those with any leadership ability at all, quickly summed up the situation, saw various subtle signs of discontent, and struck out on an all's-fair proposal of war. Ves, these are our freshmen. Each year, as the new crop of colhgiates, (and I apply this term, only because so directed by the freshman class as a whole), plow through the beginning furrows of education, rebellion of a sort and degree is evident. The sort and degree vary with each class, but the individualistic characteristics a r e the same. Last year, the Lowly Ones, determined to make a big impression on every sophomore and upperclassman on the entire campus, did what they were told. However, they always seemed to go above and beyond the call of duty. This year, during the week-days, September 27-30, initiation took on a completely different, and totally new aspect. Freshmen not only couldn't believe their daily instructions, they even went so far as to ignore them. This, it seems, is The Way to indicate disfavor with authority. Actually, those who didn't want to participate in the daily activities sponsored for them by the sophomore class, got to take some extra-special field trips. Some of the lucky ones picked up specimens of canyon mud for analysis, while others, in preparation for the track season, took up the sport of "afterdinner hiking." Yes, these are our freshmen.
'69 seemed to be getting, they became even more inventive. Some poetically inclined genius, in the throes of divine inspiration, no doubt, composed a rather quaint little song to sing for the rest of the student body, but mostly for, and dedicated to, the sophomores, during the chapel period one morning. It seems that some of the individuals became so fed up with the games of the rest of the students on campus, that they actually began throwing their beanies on the ground, and stomping around them in tune to a chant that threatened to bring the wrath of the natives upon all who were watching this rustic ritual. Yes, thjse are our freshmen.
Luckily, there were no sit-in demonstrations, a n d very few riots, but the general feelings of the frosh became quite evident through various other devious methods. In After all the extra-curricular ex- truth, the majority of them played ercise the members of the class of their parts to the hilt, and even
enjoyed the distinction of belonging to a new class at G.F.C., even though they felt that most of the activity planned for their enjoyment was far below their dignity. Many of the young ladies seemed to be a bit self-conscious in their heels and bobby-sox, while the guys had a hard time convincing anyone they were really serious while their pants legs were rolled above their knees (?) and their earrings were slipping. Yes, these are our freshmen. When initiation ceased, and the frosh became any one of a number, no more a distinct and individual group on campus, they continually tried to remind others that they had finally conquered the trial-byfire and come through without even smelling of smoke. However, not too many people noticed any difference, and the only response they got was a quietly sung . . . M-I-C- . . . K-E-Y .... M-O-U-S-E! ! !
JON NEWKIRK Editor's note: The opinions stated in this column reflect the opinions of the columnist editor and the participants, and are not necessarily those of the staff. Any disagreements may be sent in a letter to the editor. INITIATION? Every year the practice of freshman initiation is belabored and discussed. Is freshmen initiation worth the effort? To more fully understand just what initiation is I looked to Mr. Webster for a definition. He states, "the act, process, or an instance of beginning, setting on foot, or originating." The Encyclopedia Brittanica says, "ensuring a person's passage from one social status to another." I also looked up the meaning of hazing: "The subjecting to treatment intended to put in ridiculous or disconcerting position." Which category does "our" initiation fit in? The beanie, carrying of an upperclassmen's books, and perhaps shoe shining would give the frosh recognition and help him realize his place in the college community, but where do slogans such as "we are slime" plus diapers and bare midrifs fit into helping the freshman become acclimated to college life? Opinions of faculty and students were gathered. We asked the question, "how do you feel about freshman initiation?" LeROY FOSTER, sophomore class president, said, "an initiation program should fill a three fold purpose: (I) The identification of the new class as an integral part of the student body, (2) the development of class unity, and (3) the development of unity and leadership is a task that they are going to have to work at themselves if they are going to succeed." DEBBIE STEWART who is a freshman from Portland, Oregon is against initiation. She says, "At best, freshmen initiation is a very poor way to get to know the sophomores. Since it seems to be impossible for sophomores to know where to draw the line between sport and destructiveness, I feel that freshman initiation should be abolished. Surely the Christian campus is a place for fun, but not at the cost of its Christian name!" A freshman who was in favor of initiation was RICK ASHENBRENNER from Aloha, Oregon. Rick wrote, "I feel the initiation was very good for the entire frosh class. It gave us a feeling of class unity, plus identification. The initiation week also made us feel welcome and made the first week easier." Sophomore ILENE HASKINS from Salem, Oregon said, "Initiation seems to be a healthy tradition
in which freshmen can participate. It is a time when upperclassmen can let loose some of their feelings of superiority upon the frosh, but in a controlled program. Actually the freshmen are the ones who benefit most from the experience. They become better acquainted with the campus, its activities, and the place they have to fill in making the student body complete." MARLENE ROBERTS of Redwood City, Calif, must have been initiated by the wrong people for she writes, "I think initiation week was really fun. I really didn't mind going along with the fun. In fact, I think it would be kind of fun to have it last two weeks instead of just one." A.S.G.F.C. President FRED GREGORY reflected by saying, "Freshman initiation has always been a sore point with me. When I was initiated as freshman I did not feel that the procedures helped me adjust to college life or even humble me as has been the traditional objective. I feel that there is more antagonism and distrust breeded during this 'phase' of college life than in any other other. As a passing sidelight I would like to say that the George Fox Tradition of taking 'erring freshmen for the Chehalem Mountain walk is one of the lasting features of this campus. I take pride in being a member of the group that has 'taken a walk'." Bible professor EVERETT CRAVEN stated, I believe it (initiation) can be carried on to some extent without harm to anyone. For instance: the wearing of beanies, shining of upperclassmen's shoes and possibly some constructive work such as cleaning the bell tower, when we get it, etc. It is so easy for some people to get carried away and lose sense of propriety that I certainly do agree that all hazing should be abolished. It gave me a sense of pride that some students rose to the occasion during this frosh initiation week and made themselves known when they felt things were overdone." DEAN SHELDON LOUTHAN gave us this repyly: "Most freshmen arrive on the college campus today in greater need of encouragement than humiliation. The need to be humbled at the very beginning is not as great as it was in the days when, without previous application the freshmen could arrive on campus with the general attitude, 'Here I am, you lucky people!' / feel we should eliminate any activities of a humiliating or harassing nature and concentrate on teaching of traditions and the kinds of activities designed to make the freshmen feel more capable of handling college work and proud they chose George Fox College."

Quakers Upset by USF The George Fox Quakers suffered a disappointing 17-6 defeat October 2 at the hands of the University of San Francisco Dons in the bay city, their second straight loss of the current season. The first quarter of the nonleague game was scoreless, but the Dons finally broke the ice in the final minutes of the half on a 26yard field goal to go ahead 3-0. With only 24 seconds remaining in the half, Fred Schultz intercepted a Quaker pass and ran it 37 yards for a touchdown, putting the Quakers behind, 10-0 at halftime. The SF players scored again in the third quarter on a 47-yard pass

play from Steve Mongillo to Mike Gasparini. The Quakers, although trailing 17-0, continued their hard playing and early in the fourth quarter broke Derrell Carlile loose for an 80-yard run and the only George Fox score of the day. The Quakers were almost even in the yardage department, as Coach Earl Craven's squad picked up 242 vards to 297 for the Dons, but they hid trouble crossing the goal line. The coach praised several players for their excellent efforts, including Larry Craven's second effort performances and Perry Kimberly's defensive play. In the defenesive backfield, Mike Livingston and Jim McNelly intercepted several passes and stopped the Dons from getting long runs. Roy McConaughey held down the line while Derrell Carlile and Ion Newkirk moved the ball well.
