Umbeck told 357 new students at an opening convocation Wednesday night that students who are an academic success in college stand a better chance of making an important mark in life than others do. Speaking in the Knox Theatre on the subject "You and Knox College," Umbeck emphasized Canton Youth Given Job, Neiv Home CHICAGO (AP) — A Canton youth who spent an extra 10 days in jail because his parents wouldn't send him $5.20 for bus fare home now has a new home and a job. The youth, James B. Bentley, 18, was placed on probation until his 21st birthday earlier this month after admitting he drove a stolen car from Chicago to Cape Girardeau, Mo. However, Judge Joseph Sam Perry of U.S. District Court could not release the youth from custody because his parents, James and Louise, or others would not sponsor him. Ben S. Meeker, probation officer, reported Wednesday he had found a job and home for Bentley. He declined to identify the employer or the person who will guarantee Bentley a place to live. that the next four years may be the most important period in the lives of the college freshmen. "These are the years when you establish and begin to achieve important life objectives," the college president said. "You are approaching the peak of your physical and intellectual powers. There is a plasticity—an unfettered quality—which characterizes your mental processes and which leaves your minds wide open to new ideas and to creative imaginative work." Business Is Learning Umbeck went on to point out that the main business at Knox College is learning. "Anyone who is not here to learn should not be here at all," the Knox president warned. "If your major efforts on the Knox campus are directed to any other end than that of intellectual achievement and of scholarly purpose, then you are guilty of cheating your parents and yourself," he said. "Extracurricular and social activities have always been and will continue to be important to your Knox experience. I am only asking you to see to it that these peripheral activities do not become the central objects of your college life." One of Scries Umbeck's talk was one of a series designed to acquaint new students with the aims and purposes of the college. Other Knox officials taking part in the Wednesday evening session were Dr. Wilbur F. Pillsbury, dean of students; Miss Deborah Wing, dean of women; Ivan C. Harlan, dean of men; Dr. Hermann R. Muelder, dean of the college; Dr. Donald W. Sanville, assistant to the college dean, and Allan P. Christiansen, director of admis- 1 sions. Bruce R. Johnson, president of the Student Senate, also spoke. All new students will take a Have You Heard That Mr. and Mrs. Gary Sparks, Mrs. Eula Swanson and Mrs. R. G. Seastedt drove 3,100 miles on a trip through Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky and Illinois. They stopped at many places of interest on way to Miami and Miami Beach.

The 22 scenes, Biblically and historically correct, necessitate professional handling by a crew skilled in the staging of this traditional drama of Christ's last seven days. Josef Meier, internationally known Christus portrayer, is both producer and director of the Black Hills Passion Play. The 2Mi -hour production flows without pauses between scenes. This is accomplished through the effective use of a stage within a stage; while one scene is presented, another is being readied. In order to facilitate the rapid changes of scenery that take place, several elevated platforms are used, and a second arch is creeled. Every bit of available space, from the front curtain of the stage to the back wall, is utilized by the production. The company carries its own electrical control board and a variety of special equipment to create lighting effects. Members of the cast of the Black Hills Passion Play travel in a fleet of cars. Large vans are used to tranpsort the scenery, properties, lighting effects, costumes and the livestock, which consists of two camels and a donkey. The group also transports the organ used for background music and special sound effects. The Galesburg Register-Mail is sponsoring the appearance here of the group that has received wide recognition both in this country and Canada. Proceeds will go to charity. The Passion Play is now on its annual fall tour following a record-breaking summer season at Spearfish, S. D. More than 100,000 attended performances of the play in the outdoor amphitheater during the 10-week season there, Merchants with their camels, Roman soldiers, temple guards and all tho pageantry of' the ancient Orient are features of the play. As Jesus enters the city on His donkey, crowds of people in authentic costumes make the streets of ancient Jerusalem come to life. From the scene at Bethany, in which Jesus takes leave of His mother, through the Uist Supper and the excitement of the betrayal and trial scenes, Josef Meier's portrayal of ttos Man of Nazareth is one of simplicity and sincerity. The char* acterization reaches its climax in the scene depicting His tragic suffering and death on the Cross, The play closes with the scenes depicting the Resurrection and the Ascension. There will be two evening per* formances, a Sunday matinee at 2:30 p.m. and a special student matinee on Monday at 12:45 p.m. Tickets arc available at the Register-Mail.
