Kiss and Tell
The mystery photo in the last two issues of the George Fox Journal is becoming less of a mystery. Give credit to Althea Kendall of Pullman, Wash., who thought the man in the center was her late husband, Orla, a 1940 graduate who died in July 2004 at 91. She even suggested the name of the girl giving him the kiss. Hours of archival searching confirmed her suggestion. The evidence says: those pictured are (left to right) Everill Brolliar, Glenn Everest, Gloria Hoffman Kendall, Orla Kendall and Verlyn Thornsberry.

We sought counsel in the fall issue of George Fox Journal, asking readers for their help. As it turns out, the photograph we asked you to identify was about just that — counseling. The picture was of that infamous psychiatric advisor, Lucy. She’s in her booth, offering help at 5 cents to her friend Charlie Brown. The Peanuts cartoon characters were teamed up in the university’s 1995 presentation of "You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown," staged by the George Fox Players for the opening of the newly renovated Wood-Mar Auditorium. Featured as Lucy was Rachel Dressler, with Todd Payne in the lead role of Charlie Brown. Winner of the drawing for a $25 gift certificate from the University Store for entering a correct response was Sue Morgan, whose daughter Kayla is a senior at George Fox.

Can you name this loyal George Fox basketball statistician? He’s volunteered at every men’s basketball home game since 1972. As Journal went to press, he was counting down to the Feb. 18 George Fox-Willamette game — his 1,000th Bruin basketball game, home and away. Tell us his nickname (extra credit for his real name) and any memories you have of the Bruins’ "biggest" fan. All responses are entered in a drawing for a gift from the University Store.

The biblical mandate for social justice
"Many Christians live as though the aim of Christ's death and resurrection was to save us so that we can escape to heaven. This mind-set, at times, has led to wholesale neglect of temporal concerns — social, economic, and ecological justice on earth." Full story...
