The magnetic Christmas music
of singing students in an upstairs
room of Graham Memorial re
cently attracted over 30 onlookers
who stayed to harmonize with the
chorus of workers.
Jerry Campbell, Alpha Phi Om
ega president, watched the group
that joined the service fraternity
in preparing Christmas seals for
the mails and remarked with a
laugh, "It's great. Everyone that
stops by stays to help us get these
seals out." The last words of his
sentence competed with the loud

pop corn," said coed Shirley Gee,
looking up over the mountain of
white envelopes decorated with
Santa samplings. "But I'm sure
glad that I stayed," she managed
to shout above the strains of
Lynn Chandler, who "just came
up to get a drink of water," was
stuffing the Yule stickers into an
envelope and bellowing a tune in
a husky alto voice. Tish Rodman,
a late comer, added a few more
tunes "to the group's repertoire
and a big hand to the work.
Workers representing Tau Ep

sorority, dorm dwellers and al
most all other campus groups,
participated in the singing work

A Fatal Game Of Cops And Robbers
By Rolfe Neill and Elaine Gibson
The guys who've been there are tired of "a
game of cops and robbers that leaves people dead.
Let's get it over with."
The GI's who served their time peaceably
want it settled "with the peace talks. .War is the
worst thing we can have."
However, the vets all are agreed that an
ultimatum should be delivered to the Reds
signed and glued with atomic power. If the
Communists won't settle without it, drop the
bomb, the vets say.
After 15 months in Korea, Pete Moore said,
"I know what they're going through. If we're
going to try to settle it verbally, I definitely
think our men over there should have more au
thority in their peace talking. This lack of author
ity in the cease-fire talks, I think, is the cause
of the stalemate.
"I do not khow whether the fault lies in the
UN or NATO, but I do approve of agreement
through authority or else."

Individual students wishing to

1918 until his death in 1944. Koch
gave a total of 278 readings in all

The commission evidently real

proposal from the church offi

( Commenting on the report, the

other church in the Presbytery.
The magazine also observed.
' . . .Take the statement that be

than being a Presbyterian which
the commission looks upon as be

The magazine questioned why
the Orange Presbytery had not
taken action on "irregularities",
which have "marked the life of
thi congregation for many years,
before this time." The magazine
Iso urged that the Presbytery
establish a second Presbyterian
church here to create a place of
worship for those not satisfied
with the present one.
