Competition With the Squad

Was Keen Enough That Every Man Had To Work Hard.

The Strength of the Team Was Due To the Combined Strength of Out-stnading Individuals

Coach Gardner had a well bal-anced football squad this year with

which to develop his smooth run-ning machine. The majority of the fellows kept strict training rules to be in the best condition for the cris-es. Competition within the the squad

was keen enough that every man

had to work hard to hold his posi-tion. The strength of the team was due to the combined strength of out-stnading individuals.

Captain Ray Nonken, 172 pound halfback, shifty and speedy, with his ability to pass and receive passes, is an outstanding offensive man. His

cool headedness, lacking ability ability to run on a broken field, and his knowledge of the game make him ever an object of terror to his opponents.

Billy Wells, 165 pound quarter-back, proved to be a heady general for the Bulldog team. He comes to M.C. highly recommended with an

enviable high school record. He mer-its his candidacy for All-Conference honors.

Herbert Hochstrasser, 160 pound

end and backfield man, has speed fight, and skill that make him a val-uable man on the Bulldog eleven.

Melvin Miller. 170 pound Bulldog, is a valuable back field man. He proves his worth on the receiving

Don Haws, 160 pound quarter-back, was a member of last year's McPherson High School team and is developing into a valuable Bulldog.

Barney Swain, 150 pound half-back is light but built solid with

outstanding ability to break up pass-

Bill Graham, 155 pound halfback, is a valuable interference man and line plunger.

Emory Windmill, 170 pound guard, with no previous experience has developed into a "whirlwind" of a guard with the uncanny ability to break up plays behind the oppon-ents' line.

Wray Whiteneck, 170 pound guard, with two years of college ex-perience is efficient and dependable with lots of fight.

Paul Bowers, 170 pound center, with no previous high school exper-ience and one year college exper-ience has developed into a powerful lineman.

Clarence Zink, 250 pound guard, is a bulwark of strength and an im-movable linesman.

Newell Wine. 170 pound tackle

comes to McPherson with a brilliant

high school record. He is a cool headed, clean player and a hard

Irvin Rump, 185 pound end, can be depended upon to "get his man."

Vansel Snow, 170 pound guard, comes to McPherson with an out-standing high school record and has proved his worth as a Bulldog.

Levi Lengel, 190 pound tackle.

with his weight and strength is the "jinx" to his opponents' line.

Reuben Bowman, 165 pound tack-le, is sturdy and a man who can be relied upon in critical plays.

Archie Blickenstaff, 175 pound end, is an all around good and clean player with excellent ability to re-ceive passes. He always gives of his best while in the game and being a senior will leave a place that will be hard to fill next season.

Burnison, Fretz, Sargent R., Miller, Mowbray, Barngrover, King Diggs, Reuhlen Ellis, and Campbell make up a strong reserve which is a vital factor in building up a strong


Ray Nonken, three years a back-field man on the Bulldog team, has won the support and admiration of his teammates and fellow students by his real sportsmanship. He mer-its his place as captain of the 1928 football team through his repesen-tative spirit of the true Bulldog. He is an all around athlete who plays rnimlilenfly. As a football player he is flashy, shifty and speedy and a very capable ball lugger. His re-liability is an outstanding character-istic. His personality has a remark-able influence upon his fellow play-




Ray Nonken the dauntless, shifty half back, received the honor of a place on the second team of the Kan-sas Conference All Stars and an hon-orable mention on the All-Kansas Eleven. Nonken has another year

of football so that his reputation

should be an asset to the team for

Bills Wells, freshman, by his

heady game and passing ability won a place on the- third team of the All-Kansas Eleven and second or prob-ably first place on the Kansas Conference All Stars. This shifty quar-ter should be a second reason for a whirlwind team the next football season. We join heartily in extend-

ing a congratulation to Billy and Nonk in behalf of the student body

for their honor.


An almost endless stream of argument flowed from the college chapel as fifteen aspirants for the varsity debate team debated the question "Resolved. That a Substitute for Trial by Jury Should Be Adopted." The tryout was held in the college chapel Tuesday evening, November 27. Five judges from the faculty decided victory or fate of the aspir-ant. The judges chose the varsity and second teams with two alter-nates for each team.

Philip Spohn, Keith Hays, Ralph Frantz and John Harnly were chos-en for the varsity squad. The first three or the above are veterans of last year's state championship team and they have proved their ability in the forensic field. John Harnly. the new member of the team, has held a position on the undefeated second team of '27

Lloyd Diggs of last year's second team and Otho Whiteneck were chosen as alternates to the varsity

Ralph Peterson, Ralph Turner, Guy Hayes and Otho Whiteneck made the men's second team. This team is made up entirely of fresh-

men with considerable high school


Gilbert Myers and Kermit Hayes were the choices as alternates to the

Judges for the debate were Miss Della Lehman. Miss Edith McGaf-fey, Professors J. A. Blair, J. H. Herkman and M. A. Hess.

Reverend B. F. Richards made a few remarks Wednesday on Thanksgiving. We should be thankful for many things, and among them are peace and the prospects for continued peace. Progress in learning how to live is another thing for which we should be thankful.


Bulldogs Play a Brilliant Game Thanksgiving Day,


Nonken Was Outstanding Star Of the Game.

The Bulldogs almost upset the dope for the season in the Thanks-giving day game. Though the Swedes had a good edge on the dope of the season the Canines had Lindsborg a bit worried as to the outcome of the

With a well mixed bunch of plays the Bulldogs went into the game with a determination to win. An as-sortment of passes greeted the op-ponents at every period of the game and almost lead to a disastrous end for the Viking aggregation. No one yet seems to understand how Well-

and Nonken could direct the passes

as they did through the entire game or how the receiving end could scoop so many of them to safety with the wet ball and muddy field. A graph of the game shows the ball stayed well into the middle of the field with sevral movements towards Swede defended line, one of which added a six point lead on the game. The Swedes wore able to move the ball far enough in the third quarter to result in a touchdown and the last quarter punted back near enough to the goal line so that it resulted in a safety.

Nonken was the outstanding star of the game with Tarrant making a close bid. Wells and Hochstrasser offered a number of thrills for the crowd. A word of priase should go to every man on the McPherson

squad as they were in there to defend

the honor of the Bulldogs. They all

fought hard. It was the kind of a

game we all like to see, clean, hard fought and close.

inspiring Sermon at the Church


Coach George Gardner represents the clean, systematic variety of sporting play and when his teams go into the content they have the full benefit of a master in the coaching line. He is a remarkable athelete and a fellow whose personality and clean sportsmanship makes its influence felt in directing the men's athletic activities of the college. He has had a wide range of experience as an athlete. His ability as a coach is

manifest by the fact that he turned

out a championship basketball team last winter and is able to bring out the best that is in his men regard-

less of the game they are playing.

Back of his coaching career he has

a brilliant college athlete career of his own. For four consecutive years he was chosen All Kansas Conference forward in basketball and won a like position on the All Time All South-western team. In 1923 he was

picked as All American forward at the National A. A. U. basketball tournament. Gardner is coaching

here for his fourth year this year.


Next week on December 10, 11, and 12 McPherson College will be privi-

leged to hear Mrs. Grace S. Overton.

noted speaker on youth's problems, of Sioux City, Ia., sponsored by the Young Women's Christian Associa-tion. Miss Overton comes to the campus highly recommended by var-

At the Estes Park conference last summer Mrs. Overton met with great approval and was well re-

ceived. The National Student Coun-cil highly recommends her saying, "There is no one who can substitute

Mrs. Overton is recognized by the

thinkers of America as an authority

of the problems confronting modern

youth. She has previously been

teacher at Morningside College. Sioux City, Ia. Her background of study and experience give her a keen appreciation for situations as are found in denominational schools.

Mrs Overton is author of num-ber of books, her lestest being "Quest of Youth." One of her books, “Dra-ma in Education" is in the McPher-son College library.

There will be a number of meet-ings during her visit to the campus. Her greatest value lies in private conference, however. It is urged that the students of McPherson con-

sider this an opportunity to be made

the best of.

Canines First Game of the Sea-son Was With Oklahoma East Central State Normal.


Much of Success Is Due to Cheerlead-

ers Hovis and Frantz.

The football season of 1928 was looked forward to with higher prospects than any of these or four years previous. After school opened things were still more promising when forty-five men, including seven letter-men reported for practice. A large share of the new material was made up of men who had a large

amount of high school experience the

last few years. Many of the new men had excellent records following them. The Bulldogs had only four

weeks to practice together until the first game was to be played last fall, but with the untiring work of life coach and the boys they had their machine ready when the time came.

The Canines opened their season away down in southern Oklahoma where they played the East Central State Normal team on September 28: The Bulldogs were greatly out-weighed man for man, but after fought hard as usual and held the teachers to a 13-6 score in their favor. This game had no bearing on the conference standing of Mc-Pherson, even if it was last, for it was played outside the conference

in order that the coach might find

out how his men worked together under fire before they were to face

a conference opponent.

On October 5. the Bulldogs jour-neyed to Wichita where they bat-tled the Quakers of Friends Col-

lege in the first conference game. It was a ragged game from start to finish. Nonken and Wells each played a brilliant game for McPher-son but due to some serious fumbles the Bulldogs were forced to take the short end of a 12-7 score after hav-ing out-scrimmaged their opponents. The St. Mary's Irish invaded the Bulldogs kennel on October 13 only to be outplayed in every department

of the game by their opponents. A wet ball caused the first half of the

game to be played a bit rough, but

both teams came back strong in the

second period the spectators saw

a real game of football. Nonken and Wells made the outstanding gains for the Bulldogs, while Swain played a pretty game at halfback, breaking up many of the passes that the Irish tried. The teams tied at 6-6.

October 20 St. Benedicts defeated

the Canine team 12 -0 on the local

gridiron. The Bulldogs outplayed

their opponents throughout the game

and placed the ball in scoring posi-

tion many times but seemed to lack

the force necessary to get it over

the goal line.

The Bulldogs invaded Sterling ter-ritory on October 26 where they

showed their Bulldog fighting spirit. Early in the game Sterling fumbled the ball which was recovered by Nonken of the Bulldogs who carried it to a dandy scoring position. The Bulldogs put it across, but failed to kick the goal. Sterling came back

then and scored a touchdown on the Bulldogs as well as an extra point. The Bulldogs then returned the com-pliment when Nonken again got

away with the pigskin, this time for sixty yards and a touchdown. The extra point was made. In the second period Nonken again got away for thirty-nine yards. But something

seemed to have happened and Sterl-

ing got the ball and seven more points. At the end of the first half

the score was 13-14 in favor

Sterling, and although the Bulldogs put the ball in scoring position sev-eral times after that, they ere un-able to score again.

It was on Saturday, November 3

The game last Thursday ought to be an impressive example to wide awake Bulldogs of a piece of work

well done. Loyalty and love for a

school of quality was evidenced as it has never before been on the 1928 football team. Every man fought to the last minute with the last mens-ure of strength. So may it be

throughout all the ensuing year.

Just such a fight from the very start to the finish will put McPher-son across in basketball, track, de-bate, oratory, and music.

Practically every student who re-mained in McPherson Thanksgiving day attended the game at Lindsborg, an example of the usual Bulldog loy-alty. What such loyalty and inter-est meant to the boys on the field can not be measured. All we know is that it helped. Consequently it behooved us to boost the activities that are coming and make what M. C. does something worth talking

Macoeds Give Football Men Breakfast Thursday.

Coach George Gardner and his football squad were guests at a

breakfast served by the Macoeds in the home economics department of the science hall last Thursday morning at seven-thirty.

Those present were Coach Gard-ner, Roy Nonken, Wray Whiteneck, Bill Graham, Irvin Rump, Lawrence Sargent, Archie Blickenstaff, Newell Wine, Reuben Bowman, Harvey King, Emery Windmill, Paul Bow-ers, Bills Wells, Vansel Snow, Levi Lengel, Melvin Miller, Clarence Zine, Otha Whiteneck, Lloyd Diggs, Oliver Ikenberry, and Fred Andrews. Three course were served. The

menu was as follows:


Cream of Wheat with dates


ham and eggs

toast    coffee


ice cream


Graveyard slew is bad enough at best, but it is worse if the bread has previously been ammunition in stu-dent battles in the dining halls.

A properly supevised moving pic-ture machine in the new chapel would serve educational purposes, save money for the students if no profit was expected, and would provide wholesome entertainment. Talk it up. Pay It up.

The library is certainly a fine place to visit friends. Isn’t it?

A short devotion period each day keeps the devil away.

The dormitory is a pleasant place to visit—try it, faculty.

Topeka. Dec. 1 - The Kansas In-tercollegiate athletic conference was dissolved today at a meeting of its officials. Eight members voted for the motion bringing the conference to an end, and two against.

Final dissolution of the confer-ence followed a shake up one year ago when seven members withdrew to form the Central Conference.

Immediately after the final dis-ruption today, plans were revealed for the formation of a new conference, probably to include six mem-bers, as follows: Kansas Wesleyan, Salina; Bethany College, Lindsborg; St. Mary's St. Mary's; McPherson College, McPherson, and Ottawa Uni-versity, Ottawa.

It was reported that there would probably be a playing agreement with the four old members of the Kansas Conference not included in the tentative lineup-- St. Benedict's of Atchison; Sterling, Sterling; Friends University, Wichita: Bethel, at Newton, and St. Johns, Winfield, an associate member of the old con-

With the dissolution of the con-ference the rule which prohibited scheduling of games between the members and Central Conference teams was automatically wiped out.

Bethany College and McPherson Wednesday morning by representa-tives from the student council of College which makes harrying and detrimental treatment of campuses by members from either school out of order. The offense is punishable

by the school which the offender

The matter was presented to the student bodies of both institutions. The vote at Lindsborg was unani-mous; it also carried at McPherson. It is hoped that this agreement will be binding and effective.

At the regular session of the Wom-en's Athletic Association last Mon-day evening, the Misses Alberta Hovis and Floy Brown gave reports on the state W. A. A. convention which

held some time ago at Lawrence to which they were delegates. A 5 nrr report was also given, and no discussion of the initiation of

members was made. A decision at the W. A. A. meet regularly Irr instead of once a month was made.

Miss Hovis' report concerned the principal speakers and the discus-sions primarily. Dean Agnes Hus-band and Dr. Forrest Allen, both of K. U., spoke to the delegates and which emphasized the importance and necessity of athletics for college men as did the other speakers. The convention in general: meet-ings, entertainment, various sports interest, and the method used in conducting sports in other schools is the theme of Miss Brown's

Emporia, C. C. P. A.— Miss Pearl Pickens, Miss Wilma Batchelor, Miss Bernice Crawford, and William Just, instructor in the school of music at the College of Emporia, appeared in

(Continued From Page One) that the Bulldogs wrote their name for the first time of this season in the Kansas Conference win column by completely snowing under the Bethel team at Newton with a score of 23-0. Some of the Canine regu-lars did not get to play that day due to injuries received in previous games. They plowed across the opponent's goal line three time dur-ing the game.

The Coyotes and Bulldogs clashed on the local gridiron in the most thrilling game this season. The op-ening of the game of November 10 gave the Bulldogs the lead and after two attempts in the first period they managed to cross the Coyote goal line. They were in scoring position again when they fumbled the ball that the Coyotes picked up and made a series of gains that lasted throughout the game. Nonken and

Hockalrosser were the outstanding players for the Bulldogs. The great-est feature of the game was the pass work of the Bulldogs. Out of twen-ty-one attempts they completed four-teen. It was another of those defeats that was hard to take. The score was 21-6 in favor of the Coy-


The Turkey Day game was played on a muddy field at Lindsborg with-in the camp of the Terrible Swedes. Our blond neighbors had all sorts of dope on us this season but we had the determination to upset that dope and turn it into a Bulldog vic-tory for Coach Gardner told us the night before the game that we had a better chance to win this year than we have had in the past four years. The Canines played a spectacular game throughout in a spite of the mud that hindered them against a heavier team. Their passing attack was outstanding and kept the nerves of the opponent's supporters on edge throughout the game. A pass to Nonken in the second quarter scored the first touch down of the game; but the Bulldogs were unable to hold their opponents who forged into the lead in the third quarter and in-creased it in the fourth. The game ended with the score standing 6-9 in favor of the Swedes.

Although the Bulldog line-up this past season was not as heavy as their opponents they showed much hard fighting and a lot of clean cut sportsmanship that any school could feel proud of. Our boys this year

seldom penalized for unfair treatment of their opponents, a thing that we should be glad of. The sea-son was a successful one if it is good sportsmanship that the game tends
