The Patchwork Quill is a touching play, centering around an old wo-man's love for her patchwork quilt, every colored square of which holds for her a memory. By means of these squares the audience is given a glimpse into the past and her youth-

The Flower of Yeddo, a Japanese comedy in one act, by Victor Mapes, will be presented by members of the dramatic art class for the Cosmos at the Mohler home, the evening of Jan-

Salnara (whom Kami loves)— Dorothy Liholm.


The program in Y. M. C. A. Tues-

day was led by Wray Whiteneck,

who read devotions. The topic of the

program was "How Should the Prin-

ciples of Christ Affect our Lives". The first speaker, Harold Fasnacht, showed just how Christ's principles can apply in our lives in the Dormi-tory,and that in the Dormitory is a test of our training and ability to produce the best in us. "Man is like a Labrador Spar and reflects his life at certain angles" said Fasnacht.

"and what other men see in us is the result of our experiences".

The second speaker, Walter Fill-more, talking about Christ's influence in the classroom, said we should use Him as a guiding light in being kind,

considerate and virtuous toward others and the instructors in the

classroom. “We cannot become true

examples until we get the spirit of

the good Samaritan on the campus".

Dinner Party Given Last Wednesday


The home of Dr. and Mrs. V. F. Schwalm was the scene of a smal dinner party given last Wednesday evening to the ladies of the college family. The dining and living rooms wore made cheerful by the use of roses and carnations.

Those present at the dinner were the Misses Dell Lehman, Mildred Lamb, Marietta Byerly, Jessie Brown, Edith McGaffey, Fern Lingenfelter and Mrs. Anna Tate.

According to one who was there everyone had a pleasant evening and appreciated the hospitality of the Schwalm's.

Arrangements have been complet-ed for the Tabor College Oratorio Society to appear at the McPherson Community Building on March 11. There are two hundred voices in the chorus that will sing one of the most popular of the modern oratorios. "The Holy City," by Gaul.

The Tabor College Oratorio Society will be accompanied by the McPher-son Salon Orchestra. Mrs. Anna Tale, Voice Instructor of McPherson College will sing the soprano solos. This program is being sponsored by the Cecelian Music Club and the McPherson College Student Council.

Some saw that opportunities knock only once. That scarcely fits into our philosophy, but there is an opportunity coming this week that at least does not knock every day of the year. The large art exhibit of over two hundred pieces in present-ing an opportunity before students to enable them to become acquainted with the great masterpieces of the world. A familiarity with such is

certainly a part of a complete and finished education. Aside from simply being posted on such matters there is a value in knowing about them from the standpoint of person-al enjoyment and the cultivation of one's sense of aesthetic beauty. The price of admission is within the reach of any student, and the programs promise to be off much interest. The proposition is well worth considering.

The coming few days seem rich in-deed with promises of various kinds. The art exhibit marks three red better days. Two more appear short-ly following. Next Sunday and Mon-day Sherwood Eddy comes to our campus. The dynamic of his person-ality and the influence of his effer-vescent spirit are ours for the hav-ing. He will deliver a number of ad-dresses while he is here, and that is another opportunity that knocks rarely indeed. Let us consider it so and act likewise.

This is the Third of a Series of Letter Received from Our Field Secretary


Last week I said I was going out to see Franklin Evans. Well, we were glad to see each other. He was gath-ering corn. He was deeply interest-ed in the affairs of the school and I told him if he would subscribe for the Spectator he could keep up with the activities of old Mac. I think you can expect his subscription.

I am finding out this state of Ne-braska is a kingdom of its own. I spent a part of Sunday in the north central part of the state at Arcadia and I felt I was nearly out of reach. Wondering if you might be going to send out a searching party for me.

I am finding several young folks who are interested in McPherson College. These churces are asking if we are going to send them a deputation team this year. They are hoping they can have a good team. I found the work of the team did as much good advertising for the school as any other means that have been used. How is the weather at McPher-

son? It is ten degrees below zero here this morning. I drive awhile and then stop and warm a while and then go again. I drove over a hundred miles yesterday. I passed thru

Clay Center. Ate dinner and went up in the Radio Station of K. M. M. J. As soon as I registered on the visitors roll, they announced in the air that I was with them visiting the station. Did you hear my name called? First time the world over knew there was such a fellow as the field secretary of McPherson College.

Say, are the Bulldogs winning the games 100%? Nebraska papers do not publish the sport news from Kan-

Two weeks ago at a mass meeting: of the college men called by Dean Mohler it was decided that a basket-ball tournament should be held for the benefit of the fellows who could not play on the varsity squad. Plans were made whereby each man was in draw for his place on a team so as to have equally divided teams, the num-ber of players on each team being limited to six. The following com-mittees were elected: Officials com-

mittee, Paul Bowers, Schedule com-mittee, Wray Whiteneck, and Cham-pionship committee, Murlin Hoover. The me decided that the tourna-

ment should start as soon as possible and last until about the first of March. Each team will have an op-portunity to play every other team and at the end of the tourney an All Tournament team will be selected and a record of the ten high scorers will be made.

As a result, eight enthusiastic teams were organized, the line-ups of which follow:

Hot-Shots—G. Lerew, captain, J. Harnly, C. Collins, R. Yoder, W. Whiteneck and R. Burnison.

Pla-Mors—F. Andrews, captain, O. Whiteneck, Roy Frantz, Raymond Peterson, H. Crist, and W. Bigham Question-marks-R. Buskirk, E.

Keck, J. Yoder, M. Hoover, H Eby, and R. Turner.

Sharpshooters —N. Wine, captain, R. Landes, J. Hart, V. Spilman, R. Swain, D. Kelly

Clowns—L. Diggs, captain, R. Bowers, V. Ohmart, C. Walker, T. Crist, and A. Harris.

Blue Streaks—P. Bowers, captain.

G. Harris, C. Bishop, B. Sjoberg, C. Trostle, D. Kerlin, J. Fifer.

Fighting Cocks— E. Kaufman, cap-tain, E. Metzger,. G. Hayes, M. Early, H. Hoffman, and H. Fasnacht.

Comets—D. Dutton, captain, "D. Trostle, Raymond Landes, D. Stutz-man, L. Myers, K. Hayes, and O. High.

The captains of the teams together with Dean Mohler compose the exe-cutive committee of the tournament.


Campus frivolity is the typical college attitude conveyed by the public press. It is the best understand side of college youth by the communities from which students come. Occasion-ally, the general public hears of in-tellectual work of university stu-dents. Rarely does any mention of the religious side of students' life come to the attention of others.

Those unacquainted with student life and the psychology of youth are likely to perform college students irreligious. Any such sweeping judg-

ment is as erroneous as any judg-ment made of a group represented by thousands of students with hundreds of interests, coming from a myriad of homes.

College students are likely to be critical of religion. They have not abandoned the idealism of youth. They am seeking the highest. They are not satisfied with sophistry, nor mouthings of insincerity. When in-terest of the college students turns to religion. It turns to a religion of re-ality, not a religion of superficially. His fundmental belief may be the same as hundred of thousands of his elders. He sees religious belief far abroad of religious expression. Practical, earnest, sincere, he is like-ly to hesitate to voice religious beliefs. He is likely to prefer to try to realize them first.

Of such sincerity is the so-called

irreligiousness of college students

The men's intramural basketball tournament started off last Tuesday afternoon when the Fighting Cocks tangled with the Comets in a hard fought fast game. Although they were outplayed throughout the game the Comets emerged in the last min-utes of play with a 26-24 victory. Ray Landes, star forward for the Comets threw eight field goals and was high point man in the game. The same night the red and yellow Clowns completely smothered the Pla=Mors in a fast and rough game with a 39-23 score. Ohmart and Myers led for the Clowns in the scor-ing column with six baskets each. Thursday afternoon the Hot-Shots outplayed the Questionmarks in a 19-12 game and that night after leading by a large margin in the early part of the game the Bluestreaks were de-feated by the Sharpshooters 20-19. The game ended with the score standing 17-all. At the end of the first extra period it stood 19-all. In the second extra period Ralph Landes was awarded a free throw which he made good a few seconds before the final whistle blew, Kerlin, playing his usual individual game, led the scoring for the Blue Streaks with eleven points and Joe Hart led the Sharp Shooters with nine points.

Behind the Sherwood Eddy known to the student world today is a life lived to the ful. A recent quotation says: "life is lighter— He is a tremendous work-er. He seems to be in touch with reality—He is neither genius nor giant, but it appears almost obvious

that he had been caught by a power and a way of life neither too lofty nor too intricate for even the aver-age fellow. That power is Christ, and the way of life is Christian, lived without equivocation or excuses, "daily renewed, daily expanded". The Gospel was first a personal one and later a broad social Gospel, with a

wider and deeper meaning. It was a missionary gospel —glad tidings for the whole world.

The McPherson College Bulldogs defeated the Kansas Wesleyan Coy-otes last night by a count of 34-25 in the fastest and hardest fought court battle seen in the local Convention hall since the Bulldog-Bethel game nearly a year ago.

Although they were unable to start off true to form the Bulldogs managed to hold the lead by a narrow margin throughout the first half which ended with the score standing 12-11. Frequent tumbles, bad passes, and poor shooting were largely res-ponsible for the Bulldog's inability to gain a larger lead early in the game.

In the second half the Bulldogs began with a flash, sinking two baskets in the first few moments of play and gaining a lead which was soon overcome by the Coyotes who now began to play a style of basketball that almost swept the Bulldogs off their feet. At this point in the gam, Stab, a clever Coyote, suc-ceeded in breaking through the tight Bulldog defense and making several counters in rapid succession which finally resulted in a one-point lead for the Coyotes six and a half minutes before the end of the game. Captain Nonken called time out, after which the Bulldogs returned, their strong offense taking full pos-session of the coart, and played a kind of basketball that brought every spectator to his feet. Nonken broke through in his usual manner for a

set-up which was followed by baskets by Rump then Crumpacker in rapid succession which according to the timekeeper took place in thirty sec-onds giving the Bulldogs a lead which they continued to widen with baskets from Miller and Rump and the Bulldog defense did not allow the Coyotes to score again in spite of their threats, before the final gun cracked.

The entire game was a thriller. There was not a second of perform-ance in the whole game in which attention of every spectator was not rivited upon the action of the play-ers. At no time during the game did either team have to feel assured of victory.

Melvin Milter lead the scoring with eighteen points to his credit. Stabe, the man who was largely responsible for the 24-25 Coyote lead in the final period of play, was high point man for the Wesleyans with thirteen points. Nonken and Blickenstaff played an outstanding game on the defensive.

Canadian college girls use more rouge then British co-eds, according to a group of English women stu-dents who visited the University of Toronto recently. One of the visitors suggested the situation as being a result of American influence.
