McPherson College To Send Either One Or Two Representatives

To Be Held In Detroit

The next great gathering of stu-dents in North America will be the tenth Quadrennial Convention of the Student Volunteer Movement. The Convention will be held in the Masonic Temple in Detroit, Michigan, a building which is splendidly equip-ped for the activities of the Convention. This is the tenth of a series of conventions started in 1891 at Cleveland with an attendance of 680 and held at four year intervals, to the Indianapolis Convention in 1924 with more than 6,000 delegates. The Convention starts Wednesday, December 28, 1927 at 2:30 p. m, and continues until January 2, 1928.

The purpose of the Convention is to clear up the questions that are so perplexing to most students along mission lines. It Is difficult for the present age to go to different coun-tries and present to them a culture or religion which is decidedly alien.

The missionary movement has re-

Amanda Fahnestock, former dean of women of McPherson College. The leaders throughout the week were Miss Della Lehman, Mrs. F. H. Crumpacker, Prof. J. D. Bright, Miss Ma-belle Roskam, and Earl Kinzie.

The atmosphere of the services was reverent. Many expressed satisfaction with the response of the students, saying that they thought the services were decidedly worthwhile and uplifting.



ceived some severe criticism and that must be dealt with; answers being given to justify students in going on with preparation for missionary work.

The Convention is to deal with questions pertaining directly to foreign mission work. Native leaders, the ones who have been the recipients or the great work done by the missionaries, will be among the speakers. An opportunity will be given to talk with those speakers and get first hand information of the problems that confront the nations. At the present time most of the information about missions is very meager, this addition to the Convention will give a chance to really understand what is being done throughout the world in mission work.

Some of the main topics for discussion at the Convention are: Is The Day of Mission Done? Is It Christian To Leave Non-Christian America? The Objective, Scope and Accomplishments of Missions, North America Churches, Their Boards, and Missions Changing Relationships, Missions and Western Imperialism— Aggressive Occident, Is Christ A Way or The Way? The Place of the Biblne and Prayer in Missions, My Place In The Plan of God For The World,

The convention will be greatly worthwhile. Who shall we send as our representatives in this great world movement of students? Because of the importance of this Convention our delegates must be chosen with great care. Give some serious thought to the matter.

Twenty-five students gathered at 4:30 o'clock Friday afternoon to hear Miss Edith McGaffey read from the poems of Carl Sandburg. The meeting was held in Miss McGaffey's classroom.

Miss McGaffey began by giving a brief summary of the life of Sand- burg and by telling of her impressions of the poet when she heard him read his poems. She then read a number of Sandburg's poems showing his interest in simple people and things, especially his interest in the people in the humble walks of life. Miss McGaffey pointed out the irony and tenderness in his poems. She explained that Sandburg is one of the most outstanding poets of recent years.

This meeting was especially for students interested in literature, and they are looking forward to further meetings of this nature.




Miss Tirza Dinsdale, secretary of the Young Women's Christian Association of Chile, visited the McPher-son College campus Wednesday and Thursday and was guest at a tea given by the College Y. W. Wednesday afternoon in the Y. W. room.

At the tea Miss Dinsdale displayed many pieces of Chilean fancy work and as she showed them she told a number of customs, characteristics and manners of the people. One of the articles that exceed admiration

and comment was a large Spanish shawl.

Members of the Y. W. C. A. were heard expressing their appreciation of her visit to the campus and all that she did to bring McPherson College closer to the South Ameri-can countries.

Fine Arts Department Gives Recital

The fine arts department of McPherson College gave a recital in the College chapel last night at 8 o'clock.


study (girls are supposed to study in high school as well as college). The next great field in which there are several things we can be thankful for is the field of entertainment. In this field comes the movies, we can be thankful that we have one for if we did not the boys would either have to throw their money away or become filthy rich and then this condition would lead to a school of astronomy. The all school socials also fall in under this head. We can be thankful for them even if they were not funny for they are all we will have this year. The delightful chapel speeches must not be forgotten for they inspire us to see all the good, theater, and the beautiful in life as well as inspiring us to study hard and make fools of ourselves. The freshmen are the principal feature of entertain-ment on the campus. For them we should all be thankful for imagine how sober we would get if we didn’t have something to laugh at every day.

Bulldogs Lose In Scrappy Game

Long Runs And Excellent Passing Work Failed To Gain

From forty to fifty students gathered in the Y. W. room at 6:10 o'clock every evening last week for a short prayer service in observation of the World Week of Prayer.

The World Week of Prayer Is an annual feature of the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. work. This is the first year that this week of prayer has been observed to any extent at McPherson College, and those in charge were very much gratified with the interest the stu-dents took. This year the general theme for the week's services was "We Would See Jesus."

The services began Sunday even-ing and closed Saturday evening. The opening service was led by Mrs.

Miss Arlene Saylor of the college played "Scherzo and Sonata op. No. 2, by Beethoven, “Berceuse" by Dynsky, and “Hopak" by Mousorg-sky.

Miss Rowena Crumpacker of Mu-Pherson played a violin solo "Thistle Down Waltz” by Walker. She was accompanied by Prof. Lewis Dull.

Miss Thelma Budge of McPherson College sang “Songs My Mother Sang To Me" by Dvorak and "The Lotusflower" by Schumann. Her ac-companiest was Miss Arlene Saylor.

Miss Allda Schragg of, Moundridge, accompanied by Prof. Lewis Doll, played "Song of Summer" by Brown, on the violin.

Mias Una Morine of McPherson played "Prelude E Major" by Chopin and "Waltz D Flat Major" by Moszkowski.

Be at Pep Meeting next time, the cheerleaders promise a big surprise

Thanksgiving has very little mean-ing to the average student except that it means two days vacation. He forgets that it was really set aside as a day of thanksgiving but he will say that times have changed. By this he means that when the Pilgrims held Thanksgiving they had something to be thankful for but the student has not. For when the pilgrim hold thanksgiving he was through for the summer and could settle down to an easy winter life, but the student has to work all summer and then be thankful be cause he has a nice hard winter of school before him. He does not appreciate this very much but if he would stop to think (which is a rare occurence among college students as well as school teachers) he could find several things to be thankful for even on our own cam-pus.

Take for instance the subject of the end of the first nine weeks. First we can be thankful for all the A's we received as a recompense for our many weeks of untiring work. For if we would not have gotten our A's we would have thought that the first nine weeks of school were wasted and our labors were futile. This in turn would have necessitated the burial of our in-tellectual Spirit which would bring a crisis upon our school. Secondly we can be thankful for nine weeks grades will give a means to gauge our studies for the rest of the year. Many of us have new teachers and it takes the first nine weeks to figure out how we are getting by. Many students found that they were doing more work than was necessary to just get by so they will have to devote more time to Rook, Chess and other modern sports. Last but not least we can be thankful that nine weeks is one-fourth of a year and the sum of the parts equals the whole so three more like it and school will be out. In fact we can be thankful that one-fourth of the year is over.

Now we will take up a more im-portant subject that of the girls. Of course it is tough that they get out but one night a week but we can even be thankful for this. Think if they were given the same rights as men, they would be able to go out every night and this would lead to the bankruptcy of the boys so the girls would have to wait until next year to have their fun. On the other hand think if they were not let out at all. This would be death itself as well as not leaving and time for the down town girls to

There are several minor things for which we can be thankful if your list is lacking. Take for in-stance Portia Vaughn’s Bulldog’s growl. We can be thankful that it hasn't been squeezed to death for in it is centered the spirit of the school. Next, that we have a nice quiet place like the library to study in; for this we should be doubly thankful: that water throwing has ceased is another blessing for if it had not someone might have gotten killed by being bit on the head with a piece of ice. We should also be thankful for the good and plentiful meals as this will keep us from over eating on Thanksgiving Day, so we can study hard Friday. For the two days holiday the students should be, must thankful for it will allow them time to catch up on lost sleep.

For all of those blessings we should humbly give thanks on the great day.

The Sterling Barrelmakers scattered their splintered staves in the Bulldog camp last Thursday, fought a determined uphill battle and scored a touchdown in the last few minutes of play, which enabled them to win the 1927 Sterling-McPherson grid encounter by a score of 12 to 7.

The Bulldogs were outplayed during most of the game, the Barrel-makers gaining at will through the Bulldog line. The aerial attack of the Dogs was much superior to that of the invaders and very frequently resulted in gains. The Dogs also excelled in punting, but on straight football the order must be reversed.

First Half

Under the newly organized cheer leading section the stu-dent displayed such pep with to draw remarks from the teams

and outside spectators. This is the true Bulldog spirit which will be needed in the Swede game next Thursday.

During the first quarter the teams seemed evenly matched. Each team has made three first downs and neither team had threatened to score. Nonken, McGonigle and Crumpack-er gained consistently for the Canines.

Tuesday—Y. M and Y. W. Wednesdsay—5:30 — Thanksgiving recess begins.

Thursday — Bulldog - Swede game.

During the second quarter, how-ever, the Bulldogs recovered a Sterling fumble and punted out on the Sterling seventeen yard line. Sterling punted back for thirty-three yards. Nonken returned for eight yards, and placed the ball on the Sterling thirty-six yard line. The Gardner bunch had a beautiful chance to score. They are famous for their aerial attack and to strengthen their reputation, on the first play Nonken stepped back, dodged a few Barrelmakers and twirled a neat spiral pass, twenty yards to the Bulldog captain, who gracefully tucked the leather under his arm and gained five additional yards, Nonken can also run, he gained a first down on two attempts through the line and placed the pig-skin on tie Sterling one yard line. Nonken stopped on the first play, but on the second the Bulldog line charged and Captain Crumpacker, reinforcing the advance, crossed the Sterling line. Crumpacker drew back to place kick on the try for point, there was an extended hesita-tion and finally the ball was passed. Nonken holding the ball made a wonderful recovery of the pass from center and Crumpacker kicked beautifully through the finger tips of the charging Sterling linemen.

During the remainder of the half the Bulldogs attempted to play a de-fensive game, however the Sterling offense was much stronger than the Canine defense. In spite of a Bulldog sixty-seven yard punt. Sterling advanced the ball through the Bull-dog line and made five consecutive first downs. The ball was on the Bulldog seven yard line and the whistle was in the umpire's mouth. On the next play the Bulldogs were offside and Sterling, playing fast carried the pigskin over as the half ended. Ferguson made the touch-down, but failed to kick goal.

Bulldogs 7, Barrelmakers 6.

Second Half

The second half was Sterling's. Miller booted the hall over the goal line and it was the Barrelmaker's ball on their own twenty yard line. They made two yards and then got away for thirty-four yards. Sterling gained another first down but were held and forced to punt. There followed an exchange of punts by which the Bulldogs gained eighteen yards. The Dogs made a first down, but punted thirty yards. Sterling fought back for fifteen yards and attempted a pass which Miller intercepted for no gain. Sterling intercepted a Bulldog pass on their own forty-five yard line and advanced to the Bulldog nineteen yard line where they were held for downs. The Bulldogs punted and held Sterling for downs

an the Bulldog thirty-three yard line. Crumpacker was back at punt formation, the ball was snapped, the ends started down and the punt rolled across. It was sixty-seven yards.

The score at the end of the third quarter was unchanged and Ster-ling was in possession of the ball on their own twenty-six yard Hue.

Sterling gained two first downs but were held in the next series and the forty-nine yard punt stopped on the Bulldog one yard line. Nonken returned ten yards. Crumpacker made nine and McGonigle eight for a first down. Nonken passed thirty-three yards to Miller who caught the ball and started for the Sterling goal line, on the tackle the ball was

fumbled. Little of Sterling recovered. Sterling gained two first downs, but Nonken was on the receiving end of the Sterling pass. It looked like the game was decided. But the Bulldogs were forced to punt thirty-five yards.

Sterling Scores

Sterling still striving to score, fought hard. They gained ten yards through the line and received a gift of fifteen more on a Bulldog penalty. They advanced another ten yards but were held for no gain on two trials through the line. The Bulldog line could hold, they had shown that, but something weakened at the third trial. Sterling made ten yards and first and goal line. Corder and Maughlin were gaining for Sterling. Corder went across, and Sterling had gained the load. Mc-Gonigle blocked the kick. Sterling 12, Bulldogs 7.

The time was very short and an aerial attack alone could save the game for the Bulldogs. On the first play after the Sterling kick off, Nonken passed twenty yards to Mann. Repeatedly passes were attempted and these were incomplete. The fourth, Crumpacker to Bigham, gained ten yards, but the ball was lost on downs.

Sterling possessed the ball, they made a first down on three plays and added eighteen on the next as Snattinger blew the final whistle. The Barrelmakers tucked the envied and carried pigskin away and journeyed homeward to place it in the Sterling trophy case as a prize more

Think It Over

Have you thought it over? Did you really think seriously about it? or have you just decided to keep your old ideas about it?

If you thought seriously and real-ly considered all the facts, it is reasonably certain you have come to

the same conclusion as the one ex-pressed by the president in Chapel last Friday morning.

Such comments as “Trying to copy university ideas" or "Can't we show

a little pep" are beside the ques-

tion. Old ways of doing things are

constantly being discarded for new and better methods. If we are going to be up-to-date on other things let's bring our sportsmanship up to the minute too.

The good sport wants a square

deal, he plays a fair game and plays

it in the open. Why not conduct our relation of rivalry with other schools on this basis?

What do we gain by going under cover of darkness or in the absence of person concerned and painting

on the campus of a neighboring college? Not a thing! Really, the idea is rather foolish. Just how we have benefited ourselves by such acts is a mystery. And besides, we

are running the risk of doing damage to property.

The painting idea may be a good

one--but it is just simply out of date. Think it over.

What Should I Be Thankful For

What should I be thankful for You hear some people holler.

When every show that's worth a cent Cost a half a dollar.

What should I be thankful for You hear some people cry.

When every time I go to sleep I hear that breakfast bell.

What should I be thankful for You hear some people cry,

Just once a day for twice a week I get a piece of pie.

What should I be thankful for Oh how those phrases rub.

Be thankful for the life that's yours Forget about the grub.

What should I be thankful for Cries out the daily pest.

Be thankful for your life and health Forget about the rest.

—Chas. Collins

We Are Out To Beat The Swedes

Confession Of a Thanksgiving Turkey

From my earliest youth my mother-sr watched over me with devoted care. She was my constant compan-

ion. I was given every advantage which fat worms, grasshoppers, and a nearby garden could afford. I grew up under condition which Puritan people would call ideal. At the time I reached maturity my mother was taken away from me. As we parted for the last time she said "June, I want you to be a good girl." But two days later I met Tom and it is here that my story begins. Inexperienced as I was I realized that a new element had come into my life. Oh! how I thrill at the memory of those wonderful moon-light nights we spent together. Tom was a perfect dear, he meant the whole world to me and I knew that if I should lose him I would die of a broken heart. June, July and August passed and I lived in a per-fect dream. September came with all the beauty of late summer. Oc-tober with its gaudy drapery of brown and crimson leaves.

Oh! how trusting and innocent I was. I trusted my Tom without ever a doubt but what he loved me dear-ly. Then Tom began to grow neglectful. I tried to reason that is avoiding me was purely accident. Late on a moon light night I came upon him roosting by the able of one of those terrible flapper guineas. This little roughed hussy had taken my Tom from me. Innocent girl that I was I could not realize that the Tom I knew was a wordily shiek with

no capacity for true devotion. I

went home, my heart bleeding with despair. My whole future life seemed to be blasted, without my Tom.

The next day I was placed in a small pen and given cormeal soaked in milk. For two weeks I lived on this luxurious diet. The farmer no doubt tried to soothe me but his efforts have all been in vain. He is now sharpening his axe on the grindstone. His wife has a pan and kettle of hot water. They say it is Thanksgiving. Here he comes now. I'll have to finish this later—

From Other Schools

Lawrence, Kan.—Recently a student at K. U.—a supposedly small college boy—"bit" on the ancient joke of going "snipe hunting." About 7:30 one evening he was taken to the aviation field three miles east of Lawrence, where he was shown how to attract the attention of snipe and how, also, to hold the sack. The victim was left there, and two hours afterwards he came wandering home with a sad realization that Barnum was con-sercative in his estimate of the pro-duction of fools.

A women's football rally is an an-

nual event at the University of Cali-

fornia at Berkeley.

One of the most beloved traditions of the University of Cincinnati is the circus parade and everything, which they hold every year at their fall homecoming.

At the University of Indiana the favorite diet of the students is peas, according to Mrs. Ralph Nelson, who has charge of the student cafeteria. Last year 1,300 gallons of them were used. Every day 25 gallons of milk are for cooking.

During Homecoming day at Carle-ton College a special dance will be given. The freshmen will not be a1-lowed to attend.

Dr. D. W. Kurtz, pastor of the Church of the Brethren in Long Beach, formerly president of Mc-Pherson College, McPherson, Kansas, began a series of revival meetings at the LaVerne Chruch of the Brethren Monday, November 7. The series will continue until November 10, and be resumed on November 13 to continue through November 20.

Dr. Kurtz will also give a series of six Bible lessons during chapel periods of this week and next. These studies will be based on the doctrines of fundamental faith. Dr. Kurtz is an eminent scholar and has given these subjects careful study. The studies will not only be very interesting, but they will solve many questions common to the minds of stu-dents —The Campus Times. La-Verne College, LaVerne. Calif.


The librarian reports a decided increase this year in the number of music books checked out. Though some of this may be due to more assignments in library books than usual, evidently there is more gene ral and serious interest in music. Our library has at least one hund-red standard music books includ-ing encyclopedias, dictionaries, bio-

graphies, theoretical works, essays, books about the various insturments, the orchestra, the fr>'. - Pubic

school music, etc. We also have six of the best music magazines, cover-ing music news and special fields of

activity. Students will iml r,..

only occasional reading from these splendid books and magazines broadening and inspirational.

The latest acquisition is, a Oxford publication. "The Border land of music and Psychology" by Frank Howes, the noted English critic. It should be of great interest

to performer and listener alike. After its interesting introduction on psychology and music come the chap-ters on Gregariousness in audiences and performer, emotion in Music, Rhythm, Applause, Inspiration, and

the Sub-conscious and Taste.

Look In a Dorm Room

The following are a few sug-gestions for those who wish to be-come efficient in being able to tell the time of the day or week by merely glancing at the average dor-mitory room. Improvement on these suggestions are of course possible an one becomes experienced.

Books here and there, coast on the

bed, occupants sitting at the table.

The next big event to look for-ward to is getting sick Thanksgiving


No one will ever know just how thankful the turkey was that got

away while the farmer was sharpen-

ing his ax.

The columnist lost a night's sleep

trying to figure what there was to be thankful for then all of a sud-den it came to him how thankful the men should be that Thanksgiving day is not when Leap Year begins.

There is still over a month of safety.

Despite changes of style turkey dressing willbe about thee same this

year as last.

Bill Hanna said that a truck ran into him last summer when he was crossing the street. He didn't mind being hit bill the fool clipped him

Izzie- "Good night! are any of them sick?"

Peg Saylor insists that Iceberg is the name of a prominent Jewish family in Alaska.

If the years one spends in col-lege are so happy and well spent what's all the rush of getting out. To get the most out of College stay young, flunk regularly, and remain a freshman.

Among The Books

Two sets of books, which Prof. Boone regards as valuable in Manual Arts reference work, have been pre-sented by M. W. Ikenberry, contractor and architect of Dallas Center, La.

Radford's "Cyclopedia of Con-struction" is a twelve volume set dealing with carpenter work, building and architecture. The T. C. C. Reference Library is a set of four volumes containing elementary and advanced treatment of ornimenta-tion, design, drawing, mechanics and mathematics.



Women who have spurned mem-bership in Phi Beta Kappa because of its reputation as a bar to matrimony need to reconsider. Two pro-fessors at the University of Califor-nia have completed a study of the comparative matrimonial advantages of the “dumb'' and the bright girls, and their conclusion show the grades of the married students to be a shade higher than of the unmarried. Women Phi Beta Kappas at the Uni-versity, from 1874 to 1910, were found evenly divided in the married and single groups. Feminine schol-arship is expected to advance in proportion to the importance of this announcement.

Most old flames have cooled off.

So have the Swedes, they are not

so hot!


joint Y. M. AND Y. W.

F. A. Vaniman, president of the People's State Bank talked to the

joint session of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A., Tuesday morning. November 15. Vaniman gave a re-port of a recent trip he had made to the American Banker's Associa-tion Convention held at Houston, Texas. The meeting was under the leadership of John Witeneck and the devotions were led by Glen Sites.

Vaniman reported the banker convention to be a great success and a real treat for him to attend. Bank-ers from all over the United States met in Houston to concentrate their forces forward better banking throughout the nation. He was im-pressed with the common-bond of friendship manifest in the convention.

The hanker gave a detail account of the places they visited in making the trip. He was especially interested in the production and market-ing of cotton. He explained the processes of picking, ginning, and storing cotton. The cities of the south appealed to him and he saw great possibilities for future develop-

Are You A Selfmade M. C. Student?

How many students in McPherson College are experiencing or have experienced the thrills and joys and perhaps, stress and strain of working to pay their expenses either wholly or partly through school? What are they doing to achieve these ends?

Misses Iva Crumpacker, Margu-erite Wagner, Doris Ballard, Evelyn Kimmel, and Ida Kingsley profic-ably employed a few years of their lives in teaching school. Orville Ruehlen, not being indolently in-clined, dedicated two years also to this profession.

Wilbur Bowman, like Roosevelt, thought it better to wear out than to rust out. This explains why he worked on Texas and Kansas farms this summer. Lloyd Jamison and Clarence Hawkins also worked on farms.

Realizing that there were golden

opportunities awaiting him in the

realm of salesmanship this summer. John Whiteneck sold aluminum— the new kind—the Health Method of cooking—aluminum. The reporter, after many ill-fated attempts, finally obtained an interview with John to get some of his "line." Up-on mention of the subject. It was evident that the reporter had touched a matter of deep interest to John for he leaned forward slightly, robbed his hands together, assumed an earnest, sincere tone of voice and proceeded rapidly; To the men "Now, Mr. Jones, I wouldn't advise you to get this if your wife is at all unpeaceable, for this aluminum it even more weighty and dangerous than "Maggie’s rolling pin."

To the women: “I won’t take but a moment of your time you know that the body requires certain minerals in order that the hemoglobin in the blood may function efficiently and carry food to the parts of the body. Why is it then, that the doctors give you this tonic containing these minerals? Simply because he knows you'll go home and cook all these essentials out of your food. This method of cooking requires no grease nor water. It is used by all the leading hospitals. Your husband has all the newest farm implements to plant corn, sow wheat, etc. Is it not equally as important that you have the latest and up-to-date utensils to lighten the burden of your house work?'"

And thus on and on--from a never failing source. It is easily understood how John emerged from his summer's work a rich man.

There must be an element of the heroic in Ralph Frantz and Frank Crumpacker. These two Freshmen get up at 3:30 in the morning, go downtown to the Puritan Cafe, and wash dishes.

Miss Clara Davis peeked at the world over the counters of Duck-Wall’s five and ten cent store this summer. Now she is employed at Dr. E. Gregory's Dental office after school.

Miss Jessie Daron, Miss Ellis and Mervin Reed are engaged at J. C. Penney’s. Among the men students working at business houses down town are Leo Crumpacker, John Cottingham, "Bill" Hanna, and Lawrence Sargent.

Although strangely enough Miss Louise Potter and Miss Arlene Church are numbered among the col-lege working girls. They trek to the New Gordon Shop on Saturday.

Some students are doing janitor service, others work in the dining hall, and a few are assistants in various departments. M. C. has three students preaching their way through school. Edgar Stauffer, Law-rence Lehman and Albert Philippi, have pastorates.

This includes some of the methods by which M. C. students are earning money. None are found to be sales-men of red flannels, escorts to carloads or mules, nor manicurists, but —Why bring that up?

New In Magazines

"Commercial Art is the title of a new magazine just received by the college library for the art department. This magazine is a monthly publication printed at New York City to present new ideas to the commercial art world.

Another new magazine is "Socio-logy and Social Research,” which is a combination of "Applied Sociology" and the "Bulletin of Social Re-search" which is published bi-monthly at the University of South-ern California, Los Angeles.

In Japan

Coededucation is considered undesir-able in Japan, and was abolished in 1921. A women's medical school was founded in Tokyo after that, and at present it has an enrollment of 700 and has been raised to the rank of a college

Anyone living within two blocks of Fahnestock Hall will doubt the validity of the general points of my story, but those acquainted with the intricate details of the situation will agree with me, that the sounds that sometimes issue from Fahnestock, although of tremendous volume, are entirely without harmful effects.

The battered waste cans are mat-testimony to the source of all the early morning disturbance. If only one of the old and lop-sided cans could speak, what a story he could tell. It would not be a surprise if several of our quiet, innocent, non-suspected neighbors would be ac-

cused of pushing this self-same can down the stairway,

This art of rolling a can down the stairs and eluding the howling pack that immediately takes up the cry of “paddles", is one not easily acquired. It is the ambition of every Fahnestockian freshman to some day roll a can and get away with it, with some, it has become a mania

In psychology we learn that a habit can be broken by substituting another. But in this case the substi-tute is worst than the old habit of can rolling.

Some few (not all freshmen) have become uncannily accurate in drop-ping sacks of water on the head of some unsuspecting person going in or out of Fahnestock Hall. This form of amusement was not long-lifed. One day a sniper lay in wait, watching from a third floor window.

His wait was soon rewarded. He heard some one going down the hall toward the front door, directly un-der his place of concealment. The door opened "Now" thought the sniper, "is the time to drop the sack and this fellow will walk right into it" The sack was dropped. But the bag was launched too soon for this person had not charged forth as most knowing persons should. The result was the first miss this certain sniper has registered. But his loog of keen disappointment suddenly changed to one of surprise and thanksgiving for his intended vic-tim was none other than Prexy.

By common consent, sack dropping has been given up as too dangerous an undertaking and now Fahnestock ians are looking about for some other

form of pastime. The majority.......of the

inmates of the Hall are awaiting with interest, a few of the more timid with dread, to see just what form this pastime will assume

Dinner time was over.

Not a cloud was in the sky.

The boys all gathered on the lawn. And each one told his When suddenly a shadow Passed beneath the sun.

Some commenced to holler.

Amt some commenced to run.

And some just sat there laughing. And some commenced to frown.

Rut that little sack of water.

He kept right an sailing down.

And suddenly It landed.    

It landed with splash

Some took their soaking calmly.

While others acted rash.

Then every one commenced to yell.

If sounded like a storm.

It meant that they had found their man.

They had found him in the dorm They led him gently out in front, And quickly formed a line.

And little bitty shivers. Rose up and down his spire Then they hollered ready,

And the poor boy started through He got a lick with every jump.

So he just up and flew.

So let this be a warning.

To those with tender backs.

You had better not start sailing, Those little paper sacks.

We're Out To Win This Time

Again comes that anxious and play the Swedes. On homecoming day the Bulldogs always play a great brand of ball regardless of how they have been playing during the season. This year they are a new team built to beat the Swedes, It is a game which determines the success of the season.

This year the game promises to be a real battles, even more than the last few years. The last two years Bethany was at the top of the win column, while McPherson was is the second division This year the story is different. The Swedes have won but two conference games, and have been scored against by every Kannas Conference team that they have played. In their opening game this season they were administered a 7 to 0 defeat by the Emporia Hor-nets. They registered a victory over the Hays Tigers, Armistice Day after being held to a 6 to 6 tie by the some team earlier in the season. They won from Friends University 18 to 6 and last week were crushed

by the Wesleyan Coyotes 35 to 0. the same score by which the Bulldogs

were defeated by the Coyotes.

The Kansas Conference standings give the Swedes an advantage with a .500 per cent mark, but dope never counts in this game. Kansas Wesleyan is the only team that both elevens have played and the results were the same. Both the Bulldogs and the Swedes had the ball within the Wesleyan one yard line, the only opponents of the Coyotes to accomplish that feat. Thus it promises to be a real old time fifty-fifty battle.

The Bulldogs sre busy ironing out their flaws in the few remaining practices. They are developing that brand of teamwork which goes to win a ball game, with the large injury list it will take all they have got and it will take the combined support of the student body. Pres. Schwalm expressed the sentiment of the student body when he said that we are back of the team that plays fair and square. It is now up to the student body to play fair and square

with the team by giving every possible support from now until the final whistle blows. Plan to spend your Thanksgiving day here and when the opening whistle blows at the Athletic Park be there to give your utmost support.

in McPherson College.

"Asthma” Makes Money

For Heartless Owner

Something different in the way of making money has been initiated by. a clever young woman at one of the sorority bouses at K. U. It is ”Asthma. ”

"Asthma" is quite a respectable blue Ford with a gear shift and springs in the seats. Its proud owner, "Bill" Clark, is raking in the shekels

to pay for it by hauling "sissies," who don't like to climb the Hill to school every day. It costs a nickel up and a nickel down, and there I* no load limit.
