ROGER BECKER (Jacqueline McCarthy) ing their home on Route 2, Clinton, Wis. The bridegroom, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Becker of Kenosha, is pastor of Shopiere Methodist Church, at Shopiere, Wis. He has attended the University of Wisconsin and Garrett Theological Seminary in Evanston. He will resume his studies at the seminary this fall while continuing to serve the Shopiere church. The marriage took place in Niagara Falls Wedding Trip Taken by Randolph P. Holub and Bride (Continued from Page IB) which supposedly was the same type of coin paid to Judas Iscariot in the "thirty pieces of silver." The collection represents coinage of the era of Herod, Pontius Pilate, Pontius the Great, Greek coins, and coins of the Roman emperors who persecuted the Early Christians. Part of the fascination of coins, according to Father Vajda, lies in the fact that in the centuries before Christ, money could only be horded —placed in containers andi buried—but not used in credit transactions as the world does today. Hence, coins have survived as relics of their era, and their carving is as artistically arresting today as it was when they were first minted. Driftwood, as he saw it used in florists' windows, first caught Doctor Seidenspinner's eye. • "I thought 'That looks just like some of the driftwood you see on the beach,' and I began to look for interesting pieces—and found one of the first and most interesting at Wind Point," he recalls. Long fond of the lake—his boyhood home in Sheboygan was only a block from it Doctor Seidenspinner extended his search for driftwood from beaches to dunes in Michigan and near Two Rivers, Wis. He has found that driftwood tends to fall into two types, the first, long exposed to water, with a gray-brown appearance and the second (more correctly called dune- wood) with a "lovely silver gray patina all its own." Working with screwdriver, jackknife and brush, Doctor Seidenspinner's first step is to clean out every spot of decay. He never stains or paints it, but waxes it "very, very lightly." Although Doctor Seidenspinner comments that driftwood "has no functional value," it has led him into interesting by-paths, among them the creation of three- dimensional pictures. One. called "Sea Music," hangs in the study at his home and one — to his complete and total surprise—was purchased by a collector of contemporary art. His advice to those who wish to follow suit: "Start with a piece of plyboard. Then mount on that board whatever you, in your na­ ivete, consider an interesting item. In 'Sea Music,' I used driftwood that seemed to convey a wave of music emerging from the sea. I continued the curve of the music." The finished piece employs paint, copper wire and the bridge of a violin. The new St. Andrew Lutheran Church is the beneficiary of its pastor's interest in contemporary art and design. Pastor Larson designed the Communion tray, using the liturgical symbol of St. Andrew, the fisherman, and also the three Crosses in the sanctuary. The sanctuary Crosses are of fir, stained in walnut, silver gray, beechnut and pecan. The central and largest Cross is the darkest; that at its right touches it, symbolizing, acco r d i n g to Pastor Larson, "the union of Christ with the sinner and God's mercy toward him." Sanctuary symbols, all designed by Pastor Larson, are changed each Sunday to illustrate the text of the day. Forthcoming are letterheads, brochures and Communion cards which will typify St. Andrew Church. As a seminarian. Pastor Larson executed some 35 crucifixes in the modern manner, one of which he holds in the picture in this section. This is not the first pastoral assignment to call on Pastori Larson's skill. He had a guiding hand in the re-furnishing and re-design of an eastern church, for which he created, among other items, an abstract Crown of Thorns. He finds his greatest challenge in art and design "in filling the need when it arises —or when somebody wants something very special."
