From The 2.A Office The Highland Players will open their 1963-64 season with a pre- sentatlo of the delightfully soph isticated musical comedy “Once Upon a Mattress” on the even ings of October 23rd - 26th, in the Liberal Arts Auditorium. The musical opens with a pro logue by the Minstrel (David Johnson) explaining the familar “Princess and the Pea” fairy tale. He then sets out to narrate the actual story. King Sextimus (Richard McCord) is under the curse of a witch never to speak until “the Mouse devours the Hawk.” Queen Agravain (Sarah Alex Bradbury) has taken over the throne and decreed that “no one shall wed ‘til Prince Daunt less (Heath Rada) shares his marriage bed.” And the Queen is determined he shall remain single. The Royalty Test has been given to eleven contenders for Dauntless’ hand and true to form each has been dismissed on said claim of illegal right to the royal blue. A prospective bride (Carolyn Clark) is at this time being given the test and has reached the seventh plateau. But alas! alack! Prir.cess No, 12 fails. Thus there is an opening for a princess once again. In the meanwhile LadyLarken’s (Sue Scarborough) lover Sir Harry has found another conten der. Her name is Princess Winni- fred (Mary Elizabeth Cobb). This princess from “the land of the foggy, foggy dew” is definitely lacking in courtly graces but wins the affection of the court, Al. though Harry has her papers, the Queen is determined to discredit her and sets about with the Wi zard to do so. A wild Ball--complete with op ium and the Spanish Panic is planned. The Royalty Test? It is being prepared.

Intramural football has once again come to the St. Andrews campus. Although competition is only three days old, only one team Green (twice Intramural Cham pions) remains undefeated. Co-ed spectators have color fully enhanced the new bleachers located on both fields. The In tramural Sports Council strongly encourages both upperclassmen and freshmen to participate in one or more of our sports each season. Many erroniously think that In tramural sports are for men only. There are several sports which are offered to girl students. Teams from all women’s dorms now being organized for the fall sports seasons. Our sports program can only be as good as the individuals who play them. If you don’t play, you can still be of great value ,to your team as a spectator. Aims of iSt. Andrews St, Andrews Pr sbyteiian Col lege represents a new venture in Christian higher education. To justify the faith of its founders, St. Andrews must challenge com placency and mediocrity in all of life. It seeks to combine with- out apology the love of God and the love of learning, the spiritual and the intellectual, and is com- mitted to the pursuit of excellence in its academic, its social and its religious program. More specifically the objectives of the educational experience pro vided at St, Andrews are the following: (1) A disciplined, informed and inquiring mind, marked by the ability to think clearly and to express ideas effectively. (2) A breadth of intellectual sympathy that includes aware- ness of the major cultural achievements of Western civili- , zation and of the emerging non- ' Western countries. (3) A growing and informed Christian faith that finds ex pression in genuine commitment to the Church, and in the work to which its graduates are called. (4) An intelligent concern for Christian and democratic values in personal relations, and in national and international affairs. (5) A desire for continued intellectual, moral and spiritual growth, (6) Physical fitness and vitali ty. (Reprinted from the St, Andrews 1963-64 Catalogue.)
