Field Sec., Harold Lovitt and Gardner Winn are Main Speakers


Five-thirty Luncheon Was Held in

Basement of Church

Having as its theme "The Quest of the Crusader." the Christian En-deavor Institute of McPherson County convened Saturday afternoon

and evening in the basement of the college Church. The main speakers of the meeting were Harold Lovitt of Topeka, who is the field secretary of the Christian Endeavor, and Gard-ener Winn of Emporia, who is the Central Distruct president of the or-


Owing to inclement weather and bad roads only 11 out-of-town En-deavors were present, representing

Hoffaungsan, Bethel, Mennonite and Centennial Societies. There were seventy-five registrants in all includ-ing delegates from the Presbyterian, Christian and Brethren churches of the city and those from the out-of-town organizations.

After registration, which began at three o'clock, was completed a num-ber of songs were snug by the group after which Rev. H. F. Richards of the college church led in the devotions.

Clark in 1881 to its present exist-ence in every country of the globe was then recounted by Miss Verna Mac McCoy of the Christian church of the city and after this introductory back ground the delegates ad-journed to various rooms to discuss Christian Endeavor problems.

Aliev a number played by a string trio, Miss Velma Wine, president of the college society, talked on "How

to Organize a C. E. society."

Following this Harold Lovitt talked on "Tools of the Crusader." giv-ing the abstract necessities and also presenting a number of books, pam-phlets and magazines helpful to the active Endeavorer. This was follow-ed by a brief intermission during which the delegates went privileged to examine the books he displayed and to make inquiries, concerning

A number of girls of the college society served the luncheon which consisted of creamed chicken on toast, mash-ed potatoes, buttered peas, hot battered rolls, pear salad, ice cream, cake and coffee.

The column this week is to be de-voted in giving advice to the folks in love with their various and many troubles so Miss Claribel has con-sented to answer the letters with her sage and wise counsel.

Some of the letters and the replies are as follows.

Dear Miss Claribel: —i am a young some college boy and I have troubles a lot. I am twenty-two, an ardent follower of jazz. I have black hair and eyes and people tell me I am good looking— but I don't seem to be popular with the girls. Could you tell me how to become popular?

Reply:— Well, young man I think you have a self conscious complex and you should stop thinking about yourself so much. When you are with a girl be interested in what she is and don't talk about yourself but talk about what she likes to talk about. Every girl likes a good danc-er so you should bring this gift out, especially tell her that she is a good dancer. Popularity comes higher than the cost of a pair of patent leather pumps. Good luck young

Dear Miss Claribel: — I am a girl of seventeen, I started going with a boy at sixteen. We are now engaged. We are both going to college and have for the last three years. We both love each other but since all the new freshmen have come in

me. He likes a little blond with a wind blown bob. What shall I do to win him back?

Reply:—My dear little girl, if we love these men we must suffer. Don't you think you have taken him too much for granted? You see men are just like children, they must be petted and flattered but we must not let them know it. Now the blond

probably has the "clinging vine" line. That appeals to almost all men, I might suggest that you come in-terested in a little freshman boy. Then become cool to your boy friend. He will up and take notice and when he comes around never reprove him for straying but welcome him back and don't forget to flatter him. Men, eat it up.

Dear Miss Claribel—I am a young girl going to college. I am a soph-omore and am considered good look-ing. My trouble is that my boy friend plays basket ball all the time and hardly has time for me. I may as

well be a basket ball widow. How

can I make him notice me more than the old basket ball?

Reply: —Your problem is the old one of trying to use force on a man My dear, men cannot be driven or forced. They must be coaxed but never let them know it. In your case you should be glad your rival is a basket ball instead of another girl.

The thing to do is to become inter-ested in basketball. Make it your hobby. When on a date talk about basket ball to the exclusion of every thing else. Soon your young man will tire of the subject and will try to interest you to something else. Let

him lead you to other subjects.

Dear Miss Claribel:— I think my problem is hopeless but I do hope you can help me. I go to college but I am what they call a bookworm, a wet blanket. I wear glasses, but my complexion is good, and I have good clothes but cannot seem to be-come popular. There is a boy I am in lovr with but he does not even know I am on earth. If you could

only tell me what to do. I am miser-able.

Reply: — Poor little girl— so young and yet so sad and over a man as

Sunday Morning Dr. Eddy Spoke on “What is Christianity?"


Monday Morning He Spoke In the Chapel to Students and Out of Town Visitors

The students of McPherson Col-lege after several years of wait-ing, enjoyed the prescence of Dr. Sherwood Eddy and Mrs. Eddy in their midst. Dr. Eddy spoke in the people and students of McPherson on Sun-day and Monday of this week.

At the Sunday eleven o'clock ser-vice, Dr. Eddy spoke on "What Is Christianity”. Illustrating the dif-ferent phases of it he discovered in his own life of service and growth, it has broadened from the simple personal gospel, into one that is missionary, soul-satisfying and clear-ly social. His experience of the transforming powers of Christianity over the world makers his message very real.

On Sunday afternoon his message was on the present world situation, in its economic, political and social aspects. The position of the United States on peace, political problems, and social problems was critically in-spected comparing somewhat un-favorably with many of the other countries. Students of other coun-tries are intensely interested in

The chapel was filled almost to capacity on Friday night when the dramatic art class of the college pre-sented three one-act plays under the direction of Miss Della Lehman. The plays were well received and the class showed their appreciation of Miss Lehman's work by presenting her with a bouquet of rosebuds.

The following plays were given: Finders-Keepers, By George Kelly. Scene— Living room of the Aldrid home. Time—Five o'clock P. M. Cast—Eugene Aldrid— Charlie Collins, Mrs. Aldrid— Jeanette Hoover, Mrs. Hampton, a neighbor Mlildred Swenson.

dell, Johnson—Murlin Hoover.

The chemistry department is con-sidering purchasing a large oil painting of Ira Remsen.

always. Sometimes I think men are not worth the heart aches they cause, yet they are nice creatures to have about. First I think you have a self-complex. Don't draw un-to yourself so much. You are intel-ligent. When you are in a conversa-tion contribute something even if you must force yourself to do so. The reason you do not register is be-cause you have let your personality remain hidden. You must make an effort to brink yourself to the front bar do not adopt a supercilious at titude. Now about the boy. Never, never, let him suspect that you care contact with him net sensible for no matter much men seem to prefer blondes and the clinging vines, they marry the sensible, intelligent wo-men. So take heart and do not be afraid to show your intelligence.

Dear Miss Claribel:    i am a boy eighteen and a freshman in college. Now I am seemingly intelligent and the fellows all like me but my trouble is I am too small. The girls all treat me like a baby and some of the big fellows call me half-pint and say I couldn't lick my weight in postage stamps. What shall I do to prove that I am as husky as anyone?

Reply:    Well! Well! Here is a

diffent problem from what I us-ually get. Since you are so young I don't believe you are through grow-ing. Now the food you get in a col-lege dormitory will help you grow and expand. Take lots of every morning before an open win-dow in tune to music on your port-able and go out for all sports. Before long will notice a difference and you will wake up some morning to find you are a man. Then the girls will look adoringly up to you and say safely, "My Hero".


The Game War the "Bulldogs” Throughout the Whole Conflict


Outstanding Feature Was the De-

fensive play of Nonken and


The Ottawa basketball team was completely wrecked last Thursday

evening by the mighty onslaught of the fast Bulldog crew. From the very beginning there was little ques-tion as to whom the victory be-longed. Nonken, Blickenstaff, Miller, Crumpacker and Rump were playing true to form byt there was no time during the game that they had to call for the best that was in them to decide the victory.

The Canines started the game off in a hurry. Rump connected with the goal twice and Miller once before the Baptists found themselves. At one time during the first period of play the Bulldogs led 5-19 and that half ended with the Baptists trailing 13-24, quite different from the score at Ottawa two weeks ago. The visit-ers made only one decent set-up dur-ing the entire first period due in a large measure to the smooth work of the McPherson defense.

In the second half Ottawa came back much stronger and much more determined than they were before

amd scored four points before home team settled down again, but soon the Bulldog scoring machine was started which made things look for awhile as though the score was going to be one-sided until Coach Gardner run out his second string men which gave the Baptists an op-portunity to improve the looks of their end of the score. The game end-ed with the Bulldogs in the lead as they had been, the score 42-27 being final.

An outstanding feature of the game was the strong Nonken-Blick-enstaff defensive play. "Blicky" played a "dandy" game, breaking up shots and plays under the basket that otherwise would have counted for the opponents. Captain Nonken was seen time and again to return the ball from the enemies end of the court, in his usual flashy manner that after fails to bring the spectat-ors to their feet. Melvin Miller, the lanky Bulldog center, was seen to do the impossible scoring act several times. He played all but about half of the game and came out with twenty-three points lo his credit, most of which were made at long range. Rump and Crumpacker play-ed a new game at battling-in on the follow-ups. Holloway and Windmill did a good piece of work after being substituted for Miller and Blicken-staff.

Alexander led the scoring for the Baptists with eight points to his credit. Throughout the game Ottawa seemed to lack the strength they had been showing against other con-ference rivals this season.

The game was fast and exciting, marked by clean sportsmanship on

the part of each team.

The following is the summary of the game that ruined the prospects been picked as this year's conference

How many of you realized that January 29 was an important day for the people of Kansas? How many of us observed or commemorated its significance to us? You observe your own birthday. Kansas has had a birthday, her sixty-eighth.

On January 29, 1861, Kansas was brought into the Union as a Free State. But hack of this lues a period of unrest, "Bloody Kansas" as it is called. It was a fight between the slave holders of the south and the free settlers of the north as to whether Kansas should be Slave or Free. Border warfare followed and in the adventurous gearts of the Kan-eat pioneers a determination to free itself from the bonds of slavery resulted in our being brought into the Union as a Free State.

After sixty-eight years we point with pride to our advancements, to our accomplishments. March 4th one of our native sons of Kansas will have risen to the second highest position in our great nation. He is no other than our own Charles Curtis, vice-president-elect of the United States.

Kansans have been pioneers in moral advancement, being one of the first to establish a bone-dry law. Opportunities of every sort are lying in wait for the progressive leader. Was not our State among the first in the agitation for woman's suffrage. The ''spirit of our Kansas people" should cause us to point with pride to our prosperity.

Let us remember Kansas Day.


Once more we are going to battle our friendly enemies of the north. But this time the "flaxen-haired" as Prof. Hess terms them are descending into our camp. Are we going to let them come without a reception of thunderous nouse and cheer. Not for their benefit, but to enspire and encourage our mighty BULLDOGS and urge them on to victory.

Let us take this matter into our own hands and create an enthusi-asm and "spirit" of "pep" that has never before been seen or heard upon our campus. Let us not only create this spirit of sportsmanship entangle-ment in the true sense of "pep", but show a courtesy and friendliness to our enemies. In our "rooting" on the side-lines be a true M. C. sportsman. Do not "boot" and "jeer" the referee, if you do, you lose the respect of the multitude of sport fans.

Instead of "slandering" and "sighing" at a bad play or skill of our opponents why not "cheer" or "applaud" their skill. What then, when our own mighty BULLDOGS show their skill? Merely "cheer" all the louder.

The “Swede" game is approaching. Spirit on our campus should gain momentum us talk it up. But let us prove that to be a real BULLDOG we must have that true Christian sportsmanship. It is the "spirit" that wins. It is our sportsmanship that shall not be criticized.


Last Wednesday afternoon while the Spectator staff was holding its weekly conference in the "Spec" room the following notice appeared on the blackboard.


"Will the 'Spectator' please publish instructions as to the methods of making a date? This will greatly please bashful, timid boys".

The Spectator aims to please so we have, after years of experience and study before hand, compiled a body of rules that is sure to bring the desired results. If the troubled students who are trying or have not yet tried to get a date will follow strictly the code of rules we will lay down, the sweet words of, "I will be glad to go to the show with you," will


1. Have confidence in yourself.

2. Pick out the fair co-ed that you desire to date.

3. When you see her go to the library or 'ad' building rush out and hide behind a bush or tree and wait for her return.

4. Be sure no one else is watching you.

5. When she reappears step out in front of her and stop her.

6. Do not apologize.

7. Ask her very politely if she would like to go to the show this evening.

8. Do not wait for her answer. Tell her to be ready by seven.

9. Turn immediately and rush to your room and tell your room-



"Petty" stealing is taking place in the boys dormitory again this year. Last year it was relatively stopped— after a fashion. This year we are not going to contend with these "white-livered" thiefs, for is that not what they are. The first evidence we have will be referred to head-quarters—police headquarters. No one may expect any mercy or sympathy from those he steals from in the dorm. The things taken so far this year have been things of little value. Little value or great value it is a crime. Robbery is a crime. A crime that is punishable either by time or im-prisonment, or by both. If they be either dorm, men or someone outside the dorm., and when they are caught, shall expert no mercy from us. Let them get their mercy from the judge.


We need a bell system in the boy's dormitory! This could be installed at a very little expense for a certain percent of the apparatus and fixtures

have already been secured.

Is it fair to the Elords? The phone rings many times a day and numerous are the occasions Mrs. Elrod has to climb those flights of a stairs

to call a student to the phone. Even at night one of the two may be heard

calling some student on second or third. After a day of weariness and

back-aching climbs to third can one expect a restful night?

What would the results be, if the bell system was installed? It

would result in a more quiet dormitory. It would save time and labor on the part of the Elrods. It will have solved one our problems.


This week the Trustees of the college and out-of-town ministers

and friends of the college are here. They are our guests; let us treat

them as such. A large number of them are strangers and are not familiar

with our campus. Let us take it upon ourselves to show them about. If

they are interested they will want to be shown.

Men , invite them to your room. Some of them are old students

of M.C. Show them about and get acquainted with them.

The Bulldogs are at the top of the Kansas Conference this week as a result of victories over Kansas Wesleyan and Ottawa last week, and have a mighty nice opportunity to hold their position the rest of the season, but according to Coach Gard-

ner the Canines do not have another game but what they could easily

drop to the other fellow.

Tomorrow night the Bulldogs tangle with the Bethany Swedes at Lindsborg and everyone knows that there is no such thing as dope when a Swede-Bulldog game is scheduled and it behooves all loyal supporters of our team to follow them to Linds-borg and give them the best they have from the sideline. Wednesday evening the Swedes defeated Ottawa by two points and the very next night McPherson downed the Bap-tists with a fifteen point defeat. Monday night the Canines defeated the Coyotes in the most hotly con-tested court battle of the season by nine points and Friday night the Swedes stopped the Coyotes on their own court by a twelve point de-


Friday night the Baker Wildcats, the team that defeated the Bulldogs two weeks ago after they were crippled by the loss of Leo Duke, are coming McPherson to reassure us of their strength. Baker did not play any conference games last week and has had plenty of room for improvement since the defeat handed them by the Ottawa five the week

As has been shown in the past a large student representation at the sideline during the games is helpful to the players, and this week it is a privilege as well as a duty or each student to attend the games and support the team to the fullest. The boys are not playing for personal glory, but are playing for their Alma Mater that she might rank high to basketball circles. Every real Bull-dog will make it his business to at-

Games Scheduled for this week in


Monday—Kansas Wesleyan at St. Mary's

Tuesday—Sterling at Ottawa Wednesday--- McPherson at Beth-

Thursday—Sterling at St. Mary's. Friday — Baker at McPherson. Saturday— Baker at Bethany.

The games played last week put Bethany on the winning side and show that the Swedes will be real contenders with the McPherson Bull-dogs for the conference title this year. The crucial test will come Wednesday evening at Lindsborg when the Bulldogs meet the Swedes on their own court at Lindsborg.

This promises to be the most hard fought game of the season and should be attended by a large representation of the McPherson fans and supporters. Many who remember the result of last year’s game with the Bulldogs on that court will be on hand exporting to see the best that is in two rival teams brought out under fire M. C. students should make plans to attend this game above all others.

We usually enjoy a good joke. This week our biggest joke is an article taken from the OTTAWA CAMPUS dated January 24th. I suppose you remember that we have beaten Ottawa twice this season. This article is a sort of "aftermath" of their first defeat at the hands of the "Bulldogs". We have not read their comment on their second de-feat. We enjoyed reading this one

and thought you might like it.

"So far, so good. Three days to go by— Sunday, Monday and Tues-day evening drops around. And Mc-Pherson, that band of courtiers, who captured the title last season, drops in with us, expressly for the purpose best expressed by that Old Latin phrase that sounds like "Weenie," "Weedle" and "Wesee".

We hate to talk about that affair. Really, you know, there should be a law against such things. Well, any-how, Ottawa didn't win. Perhaps you could have gathered as much in a little while.

Kidding aside, this last demon-stration was a wonderful thing to watch, especially in the last five minutes. Only the situation eventually, went bad. to spoil our fun. The game started, chronologically speak-ing, and Ottawa, in the course of half a game, piled up a seven point lead, sufficient to win most games. Well, Mr. George Coach Gardner, head man in the McPherson show, must have done things between halves. His pupils came back in a thoroughly ugly mood, at the beginning of the second half. So ugly were they that when they did get started doing big things, or things in a big way, as you like, they wouldn't stop. Net result—the final gun, and mat-ter thoroughly sewed up at the 33-33 stage. And the play-off began. Oooh, how we had to go on. Bitter medicine, and all that rot. They simply were unbearable. They scored eight points, which wasn't nice, while

Ottawa halved the same amount Final score, 41-37. NOT for OTTAWA.

We felt much as the little boy did, who came crying to his mother. Upon asking what was the matter, he replied, "I thtarted to wide my thick horth acroth the threet, an 'e frew me and I faw down and go "Oomp!" Brethren that was us all over”. —OTTAWA CAMPUS.
