    Students and faculty alike skip-ped i classes Wednesday and spend the whole day on various projects to beautify the campus.

    As their gift to the school, the senior class is converting "Hoover Hole" into the new senior rose garden. Four concrete benches are being constructed to face the newly planted elliptical rose gar-den in the center. The ground has been leveled, and lawn will be planted in the remaining area, bordered by rose bushes.

    Other campus committees clean-ed the buildings and planted ger-aniums in the college entrance sign boxes. The Newberg Garden club donated begonias and camel-lias which were set along the cnuthuract dv\.vo

    Campus Views on News By Mackcy W. Hill

    The startling news this week, of course, has been the death of "the Veep", former Vice-President and currently "Junior" Senator frohr Kentucky, Alvan Barkley. He died while delivering a political speech. Only a few days before this, Vice-President Richard Nixon showed that he had "chartered his course" by stating that he would run for re-election. Eisenhower confirmed the Nixon affirmation by a hearty endorsement.

    Another candidate that is campaigning with the blessing of the President is Douglas McKay. Since his resignation from the head of the Intreior Department, McKay has been campaigning vigorously for his Party's nomination to the U. S. Senate. He wants a chance to try to oust Wayne Morse, now Senior Senator from Oregon. With the Langlie Vs. Magnuson race in Washington State and the McKay vs. Morse hassel in Oregon, the Northwest is certain to hold the spotlight of the nation in this coming election when party control of the Con-gress is the prize.

    Eisenhower was out in front of both Stevenson and Kefauvcr in the Alaska election, but if all the Democratic votes had been for one Democratic candidate rather than being split between two he situa-tion would have been different. In any case the next primaries to watch are in Florida, California ,and Oregon. Stevenson seems to be holding his own at the present time. At least he is putting on a more vigorous campaign. All this politicking is a clear sign that this is Sniinsr. that it is May before November, 1956.

    This We Mean by May Day From the time the Romans celebrated their Flor-

    alia, or Floral games, to the present mass demonstra-tions of labor and military strength on the wide ave-nues of Red Square, May Day has been annually ob-served by a large portion of earth's inhabitants. In early centuries, general festivities took place. Flow-ers bursting forth in the freshness of new life, caused a gladness in humans which found expression in song and dance.

    Even though the connotations of May Day in our contemporary world may not be agreeable to us, the original significance of the day has vital, practical and spiritual values. As those in history recognized it as a time of gladness, new life and beauty, let us, on this May Day 1956, cast our cares and perplexities aside, acknowledge the never-failing God who reveals life's real beauty, and be glaYl and carefree on this joyous day.

    I have an allotment of sixty words for this "advertisement" and it's not costing me a thing. I suppose, with this limitation I should use big, long, extrordinary words, but I don't know how. You see, I always come to the point: Vote Beals into vice-presidency and all will be well. Eight words left -what to do? -Vote Beals-

    John D. Lyila There is on my mind a concern

    for more well-organized student body activities. If elected vice-president I shall endeavor to help the president to develop and main-tain a foresight of the problems and activities of the student body.

    Haphazard and loose government is nothing to be proud of. With this foresight in mind I believe to-gether we can maintain a well-organized student body.

    SECRETARY Lenore Davis

    If I am elected as Student Body secretary, I shall do my best to take accurate minutes and to han-dle correspondence efficiently. There is a lot of work to be done next year, and with God's help and working together, we can make 1956-57 the best year yet for GFC.

    Traffic Accidents Statistics Revealed The nation's worst automobile

    accident toll in history was record-ed in 1955, it has been announced by The Travelers Insurance com-panies.

    Traffic deaths totaled 37,800 last year compared with 35,500 in 1954. The injury count reached 2,158,000 compared with 1,960,-000 in the previous year.

    These figures are taken from "Fatal Fallacies," the twenty-sec-ond in an annual series of traffic accident data booklets published by The Travelers. Accident facts from every state in the nation are collected and analyzed for the booklet by Travelers statisticians.

    Excessive speed was the most dangerous driving mistake again in 1955, killing 12,700. The 1954 total was 12,380 persons. The in-jury total resulting from excessive speed was 702,560, compared with 659,000 in 1954.

    The pedistrian record was the only bright spot in the 1955 acci-dent picture. It reflected improve-ment for the fifth consecutive year. Pedestrian casualties were reduced to 230,400, compared with 235,060 in 1954.

    Weekend crashes accounted for 15,730 killed and 766,090 injured. The 1954 weekend record was 13,-980 killed and 678,000 injured.

    The 32-page booklet features cartoons by Ted Key, creater of the popular "Saturday Evening Post" feature, "Hazel."

    The booklet also reveals that one out of every 75 persons in the United States became a traffic casualty in 1955.

    Eighty-five per cent of the ve-hicles involved in accidents were passenger cars.

    Twenty-two per cent of the deaths occurred on Saturdays.

    It is as desirable and sensible to be modern and up to date in planning a college career as in choosing style in clothes, cars, or home design. There is a modern approach to college education which we would like to "call to your attention.

    President Ross has stated that continuance at George Fox college is the most desirable and most ef-ficient path for students to choose from the standpoint of acceptable credit transfer. We would like to stress entrance into and contin-uance in George Fox until- grad-uation on the basis of the modern approach to college careers. The trend in college education is for the completion of a broad liberal arts education before specializa-tion in a specific field. In conver-sation with a number of deans and chairmen of college counseling committees and in the literature which has come to our attention relative to this, the main thesis is that students be urged to com-plete a broad liberal arts program before beginning specialization in their particular field of interest.

    Just as there has been a change in the number of people attending college in recent years, now there is a change in the type of educa-tional course students pursue' in their college experience. Formerly students attended college to pre-pare themselves for proficiency in a prescribed vocation. The trend at present is for the undergraduate course to serve as instruction in broad general studies, and for specialization to come in the grad-uate program.

    Be modern and up to date in your college preparation! In the light of the present trend in col-

    lege instruction do not consider only the present, but plan and prepare now for the education which will best fit you for the fu-ture as worthwhile citizens and as adequate members of your chosen profession.

    George Fox college is highly geared to just the kind of educa-tion which students need, in the undergraduate school. Our whole aim is liberal arts instruction.

    "Where moulding futures is a sacred trust." is not only the moto for our school. It encompasses our stated objective as well. The George Fox college Faculty Hand-book for 1956-57 states:

    The George Fox college pro-gram is set within the frame-work of Christian higher ed-ucation, and aims to provide liberal and pre-professional training in a setting which is vitally Christian, intellectual-ly vgorous, socially wholsome and physically healthful. . . . The college seeks to provide a liberal educational adventure within a Christian community. A specific objective of the col-

    lege is stated as follows: "To equip the higher ranking students with suitable tools and background for entering graduate or professional school in the field of their endeav-or." George Fox also prepares students adequately for most pro-fessions which are open to those who hold the Baccalaureate degree.

    George Fox college is equipped to offer our students the best in a well rounded liberal arts program. Be modern ancf alert! Plan to do your undergraduate work in a college which is completely Chris-tian in its standards and prepared to provide a very excellent liberal arts program!

    Quakers Slate Reed In May Day Tussle Quakers Club Griffins; Today the Quakers of George

    Fox college go against their old-est rival the Reed college Griffins. The Griffins have been almost perrennlal foes in May Day con-tests and, until they dropped the game, were just as regular as Homecoming opponents in foot-ball.

    As the records will show, any-thing can, and usually does, hap-pen when these two clubs lock horns. The Quakers hold a win over the Griffins this season, as the home club posted a convincing 18-5 victory over the Portlanders.

    The Quakers have been led at

    the plate by a rook and a vet. Milt Richey and Cub Grimm have heft-ed the heaviest sticks for the lo-cals. Grimm is the leading per-centage hitter, getting 7 safe blows in 15 trips to the platter for a gaudy .467 average, while Richey has belted the ball safely in 13 of his 30 appearance at the plate for a fat .433 average.

    Richey is far and away the leading slugger, counting 7 doub-les, a triple and a circuit clout among his blasts. He is also the leader in RBI's with a total of 18.

    In this day of festivities and merry making here on the campus, the writer of this column wants every one of you to feel at home. As you go through the day we want every one of you visitors to feel at home but we want all prospective male students to come and see the Quaker baseballers in action in the afternoon.

    This afternoon the Quaker nine wiU take the field, renew-ing an old rivalry, as they tangle with the Griffin baseballers from Reed college. The Blue and Gold from George Fox col-lege has one victory over the Griffins this season and will be playing for the second to make a clean sweep of the home and home series. The home team will'have to be playing ball be-cause as in previous years anything is able to happen. The last time these two teams played in a May Day fray was in

    1954 when Cub Grimm pitched the Quakers to a win over the Port-land team. Last year the Quakers lost to the Linfield baseballers by 13-2 continuing the jinx the Linfield team has had over the home team in May Day games. Linfield defeated George Fox in 1925 in one of the worst defeats the home team has had in a baseball game on May Day by the score of 28-6.

    * * * * This year Ralph Beebe has taken over the reins of coach-

    ing the Quaker diamond team. The coach for the past fifteen years, Bernard McGrath, has retired and now does his coaching from the grandstand. Many evenings of the week one can stiU find "Mac" watching the local team and seeing that things are going along fine. "Mac's" old baseball know-how and knowl-edge is missed, but the players feel he has given up to a young coach who is really working with the team and making a club which the college will be proud of. Coach Beebe has a young team this year made up mostly of fresh-

    men and sophomores. There are two juniors and one senior on the team, including pitcher, Cub Grimm, second baseman, Earl Tycksen, and outfielders Willis Valech. Coach Beebe has very good prospects for years to come. This young team has looked very good at times. With a little more experience and working together they should be one of the best teams that has ever been fielded here.

    Coach Beebe should be given a big bouquet of roses for his work in the athletics this year. He has done a very commendable job and he has good prospects for next year.

    Quakers Drop Pair Kittens Hand Foxia

    The Quakers of George Fox traveled to McMinnville Tuesday, April 24, only to return licking the wounds of a double trouncing at the hands of the Linfield Wild-kittens, 9-0 and 6-1.

    In the opener, the Quakers were limited to two hits by the 'kitten hurler, Bill Lane. Leroy Jeffery ruined Lane's bid for a no-hitter with a single in the fifth frame and Willie Valech collected the oth-er in the seventh.

    No Quaker reached third and only five reached first, two on free passes and two on hits. The other got free transportation be-ing hit by a patch.

    In the nightcap, the Quakers failed to offer much more in the way of an offense, getting to Don Schaeffer, the Linfield chucker, for four single and a lone ally.

    The Quakers got their run in the first inning on two walks and a sharp single to right by Milt Richey. Line Score: George Fox ....000 000 0 0 2 5 Linfield 410 040 x 9 8 0

    Mott and John Lyda has all seen action and each man has turned in at least one complete game.

    Hopper and Grimm each have two route going performances in their book, and each has a win and a loss, but Grimm has been the Quakers bread and butter man. Hopper has played regularly in the outfield.

    The Quaker infield is hampered by the lack of experience, but is long on hustle and talent. The us-ual starting line-up has included four freshmen and a junior in the infield. The usual starters have been freshmen Gordy Martin, first; Don Tuning and Paul Morse, short; Chuck Newkirk, third; Earl Perisho, catcher; and Earl Tycksen, a junior, at second.

    In (he outfield, Coach Beebe has experience and talent to burn. The four men who have seen the most service are Bill Hopper, Milt Richey, Neil PierBon and Leroy Jeffery. Willie Valech and Steve Ross have seen action also. The probably starters today will be Richey in left, Pierson in center and Hopper patrolling right. Coach Beebe considers this to be one of the fastest and best outfields he has seen.

    Cub Grimm will open on the hill and if he is up to par that is all the pitching the Quakers will need. Cub has only one defeat in '3 years of college ball.

    Quakers Get 0CE; Twin Bill Slated

    Thursday, May 10th, the George Fox diamond crew journies to Monmonth to engage the OCE Wolves in an afternoon twin bill.

    The Wolves hold two wins over the Quakers this season and have dujnped the Foxians 5 out of the last 6 times the teams have met.

    Coach Beebe has not decided on a starting line-up yet, but Cub Grimm will probably start one game on the hill.

    George Fox Drops Wild Diamond Fray

    One nightmare of an Inning was more than the diehard George Fox Quakers could overcome as the hustling men of Ralph Beebe succumbed to the Linfield Wild-kittens 22-10 on the home grounds last Tuesday.

    Things were going along pretty smoothly for the Quakers when suddenly the roof caved in on the whole outfit. It all happened in the Linfield half of the third frame. Everything the 'kittens did was right and everything the Quakers did was just exactly wrong. Before things could be brought under control 19 Linfield men had dented the plate and the Quaker trailed 21-0. It was the kind of thing that one sees only in his worst dreams.

    The Quakers battled back game-ly and before the contest ended they had scored 10 runs and bang-ed out 11 hits, including home runs by Milt Richey and Neil Pierson.

    Bill Hopper opened on the hill for the Quaker forces, but failed to last the third, and was relieved by Dick Mott, who also failed to weather that storm. Milt Richey finished the inning, but he didn't entirely escape the hatchet.

    Cub Grimm finished the fray in fine fettle as he gave the 'kit-tens' two runs and four hits in the final four frames. Line score: Linfield.... 21 18 100 1 24 11 1 George Fox 0 2 005 3 10 11 4

    The men of Fox knotted things up with a singleton in the fourth as Cub Grimm drew a free pass and was sent home on Milt Ridl-ey's three-base smash into center.

    Chuck Newkirk opened the fifth with a single, followed by another single by Leroy Jeffery. Gordy Martin grounded out to the second base advancing both runners. Earl Perisho brought one in with a bunt single and Don Tuning walk-ed. Tycksen singled Jeffery home, and after Grimm had gone down swinging, Richey brought two in with a solid single to left. The Quakers then held a 7-4 advantage.

    Reed scored one run in their half of the fifth, a pair of two base errors, to end their scoring.

    Earl Perisho got things started in the top of the seventh with an-other bunt single and before the dust had settled the Foxians had collected seven hits and 11 runs.

    Bill Hopper, the Quaker pitcher, allowed five hits and struck out 12 while walking a single man.
