What ho! Petunia. studying again? I ought to tell you since I'm your big sister, I suppose, and I should be unselfish—but I wouldn't only your grades for this semester are already in. and the chances are you’ll have forgotten by next fall. But you see. Petunia. with Professors trying to get only a small percent of A s sent in. it's best not to have too much competition you understand, don’t you, honey?

Now Petunia, the first thing to remember is to always get the atmos-phere of the class The first day. always sit on the back row and study. Books? Heavens no! The teacher, Remember, baby, it’s the teacher and not the textbook who gives the grades.—As I said, sit on the back ■row and study Keep us much an possible out of the teacher's sight riel behind a tall person if possible Then the next day; if you are fully prepared. move up to the middle of the front row and do your stuff It's first Impressions that count with teachers us well as new men Well wait, Petunia. I'll come to that as soon as I can.

Of course, being new at this. It may lake you several days to determine your method of attack in a particular class. But the fundamental principle Is this, men teachers have to have their vanity flattered, and you have to flatter the vanity of women teachers. The problem Is: upon what does their vanity rest? ( Are you taking notes, Petunia? This is probably the most important thins you will learn in college)

Always notice anything new about them. They always think of that themselves. being members of homo sapiens also. For instance, when the Prof, comes in with his bi-weekly hair cut. observe in a stage whisper to whoever is resting beside you. "Don't you think Prof, looks! perfectly adorable with his hair cut that way?" Then start to writing hec-tically in your note book and blush if possible. The chances are you will blush the first time you say it.

Never be too blase In front of a professor until after the first six weeks when the semester's grades are seat in. And remember, Petunia,

I had one class where the prof. was a problem dreadfully hardboiled and seemed to really like the men best. Imagine it! That was the class where I bought the textbook. I drew pencil lines on a couple of pages and always kept those pages open. (The book was practically as good as new and I sold it for a pretty good price, so I guess it wasn't much loss though

I    did have to break down one of my principles The only other book I bought was a notebook for almos phere and it was valuable in filing letters) Then one day I asked the prof. what the author (always talk about author, it helps ) what the author mean when he said "The quality of merry Is not strained". Realty, the class had a continuous discussion for three days. then the prof looked at me and asked if I understood.

There are times when we must face squarely the severity of God, as was pointed out by Dr. V, F. Schwalm last Tuesday at Y, M. Bat God is also Good and his severity does not lessen his goodness.

There is a severe penalty for the breaking the least of God’s laws. This penalty Is sure and relentless. The wages of sin are death, Christ emphasized severity many times in the case of hypocrites or those who caused others to stumble.

But at other times He spoke of the goodness of God. A sinner truly repentant must be assured of the goodness and forgiveness of God. The Goodness of God was emphasized In the story of the Prodigal Son.

Certain developments of the past week have not been suggestive of the best spirit of sportsmanship among participants In Intramural athletics, This education has unfortunately arisen in both men's and women's basketball. It is a pity that a group that continually harp on "Bulldog spirit ’ to our representatives who meet publicly contestant in various events would seemingly forget it when their opportunity to make application of the same presents itself Self control and unselfishness if the main purpose of these activities Is not to be defeated. is the big end of a score really worth a lot of petty squabbling and not quite fair means? Really, after all, what more In there than the satisfaction of having played one’s best and having given the utmost in an enjoyable and sportsmanlike con-test?

OTHER contests

The last issues of the current number of the Spectator have each announced an essay contest, one open In any college student, and the other restricted to seniors. This is one possibility for development that has not been realized In McPherson College The college has representatives in practically all other activities and there is not any insurmountable reason that she should not participate in these events. Little need be said why students should enter these journalistic contests. The name reason exists there as for athletics. forensics or music; returns are measured by the expenditure of effort.

Directly causing the lack of Interest in such matters in a general lack of Interest In Journalism as a whole In the college. However, should there be some one who cared tp venture an attempt there are instructors here who would willingly offer their help. Let us see McPherson represent-ed In another activity, and In one that offers possibilities for much publicity. This is a field that is Indeed In need of development In our college.

An opportunity to show the "Generous Spirit" presented itself to the student body last Friday morning in chapel when a program for the purpose of raising money for the student Missionary project abroad was given.

The Bulldogs won their first game in the National A. A. U. Basketball tournament at Kansas City yester-day afternoon by defeating the Alva (Okla) Teachers five 37-34. The first half was a hard grind for both teams and proved to be an unevent-ful fight ending with the Teachers in the lead 13-15.

The Bulldogs came back in the second period with their usual deter-mination to win and characteristic ally uncorked a style of basketball that had not yet been seen in the tournament and scored seventeen points before their bewildered oppon-ents could again hit the ring.

At 2 o'clock today the Bulldogs will meet the St. Benedicts College quintet in the tournament. The Cath-olics did not play yesterday and are doped In be a strong entry. The Canines have been in Kansas City since Saturday evening. They played the St. Ignatius team of San cisco In a warm-up game before the tournament play began.


Kansas occupies the whole of North America except that used by Canada, Mexico and some other states It derices Its name from the Kansas river which is the dustiest stream an earth and the only one navigable for pedestrians

Kansas is a large body of land entirely surrounded by the United States. It was the first state to maintain a bone-dry law and If It were freed from its entanglements with other states it would float on the vast sea of fresh water which underlies It.

The state is no long that out in Sherman county they consider Dick-inson county as a part of the effete cast and dub its Inhabitants Yankees. The chief pursuit of the people of Kansas is the making of crop records and their chief occupation is to keep from making all the money in the world.

If Kansas were removed from its place the United Suites would look like a peanut with the kernel gone.

With more acres under cultivation than any other land except. Texas. which has not yet been divided into states. with more wheat than any other political unit in the world. Kansas had to expand sidewise and is now bounded by the great lakes of oil on the under side and the Milky Way on top.

Each year the Kansas hen pro duces more than half the value of the output of all the gold mines In the United States and more than three times the first cost of Alaska. without counting the Large number of her yellow-legged sons which enter the ministry.

Though In some places the hog is ranked among "the short and simple animals of the poor", the Kansas hog makes both ends meat. An a mort-gage lifter the Kansas pig is a self-starter that always works on high; With more miles of prosperity to the gallon of skim milk than any other make, while the sow In the embodi-ment at Kansan an the rind. It all Kansas hogs were combined Into one animal be could solve the great lakes to the sea program is about tw0 roots

Kansas alfalfa, all in one stack would make Pike's Peak look like a golf tee. while her “cribbed and con fined" corn crop would extend the Duck Huy.

A combination of all Kansas cattle into one animal would make a cow whose milk would replace the Great Lakes: whose body would extend from the Gulf to the Arctic and while she browsed on the greenry of the tropics her tail would brush the sparks from the Aurora Borealis

Kansas are but modest folks They admit that there are other states of minor Importance and other civilizations yet in the making. They would not claim the whole of the earth If they could because they always have the best part of it and bare little need for the rest.

"Students ideas ought to have more consideration. It's the students who make up a college; after all. they are getting the education and It should be along the lines they want, Students should have a voice in the management of the college!"

What place should student opin-ions hold? From time to time such problems that as compulsory chapel and church attendance, dormitory rules, use of cars, question of dis-cipline, place of athletics In school life. permission for dancing, or fra-ternities and sororities, Who should have the deciding vote, students or faculty?

It is the students who compose school spirit, who put life in to the institution; it is for them that the institution lives. If any decisions not affecting the honor of the school or In conflict with its Ideals la any minor questions, the students views should be, and are. taken Into consideration. Rut in matters touching the standards and principles upon which the college was founded, our op are worth—exactly nothing' We know the character of the col-lego when we enroll: we should he willing to accept its judgments without complaint.

And after all. deep as our convic-tions are at present. they may alter a trifle In the next few years. Indeed as we realize how much our Ideas have changed since high school days, this seems quite possible. And then we may be glad that We couldn't run
