"The Personnel Of The Teacher" Was Topic Of Address

On Wednesday Superintendent W, 8 Heusner of the Salina schools defined a very instructive lecture in the McPherson College chapel. His address dealt with "The Personnel of the Teacher”. Teaching is rapidly becoming a profession The great responsibility of moulding a young life during the formative period of each succeeding generation In en-trusted to the school teacher. Out of a large number of teacher that he has had, he stated that he remember-ed only a very few an having made a contribution specifically to his life. This contribution that a teacher makes is the personal type. The per-sonal of character, and integrity of soul.

Important, as scholarship Is to a teacher, teaching takes something vastly larger than scholarship. There are three essentials for a teachers. A teacher mast have health which means abounding health and vigor. The second essential is open-mind-edness to truth and progress, With progress the horizon of human activ-ity Is broadening. The third essen-tial In character coupled with personality. Every teacher must he morally strong. If a teacher is going to make a personal contribution to youth, that teacher must possess these qualities of a teacher. Teaching is the giving of one's vitality to that profession which it represents

Superintendent Heusner has been the superintendent of the Salina schools for sixteen years. In this

school system there are one hundred-

fifty teachers and forty-three hun-dred pupils.


The members of the Male Quar-tette, and their acommpanist, Lloyd Johnson sand three numbers for a ladies club at the Fred Church home down town Wednesday afternoon. Miss Ruth Blickenstaff gave two con-tume readings.


The Y. M. program last Tuesday was In chance of the college quartet composed of Lloyd Diggs. Walter Fillmore. Oliver Ikenberry, and Ross Curtis.

They gave several members rang-ing from the sacred to the humor ous. The audience seemed to appre-ciate the program very much.

The most tasty sorts or dressings are mayonaise and cream but the most interesting dressing is known as date dressing. First of all it is neces-sary to have a date and once that is satisfactory arranged with one or more parties, usually one of which is masculine then commences the prep-aration for the fray. The girl has to land her man some way and the only way she known is the means provided by Parisian dressmakers. perfume factories. and the cosmetic forces known as eyebrow pencil, lip stick, rough. powder and other fly traps.

Of course different girls have dif-ferent ways of dressing for their rea. pective and dubious dates. If a girl is anxious to make a good impression she spends two or three' days befor*' hand preparing for her date. Then again is she knows that she is so pop-ular that it is not Imperative that she look her best for this one date of she doesn't take as much pains as the girl who does not date much.

Increased Enrollment Over Last Similiter Is Expected

• Summner school prospects are very bright according to Professor Blair.

He has secured highly competent teachers. An increase in enrollment over last year is expected.

The summer session gives oppor-tunity for students to complete work. to take special work, or to reduce the time required for graduation. It gives many opportunities for lovers of music through the courses which are offered.

It is especially advantageous to teachers who wish to continue a col-lege course or who desire better methods of teaching. As an old In getting or renewing certification the summer session is valuable.

With a competent faculty and good equipment, In a beautiful and healthful location where standard word is done; McPherson College Summer Session should be a success.



A Large Number of Useful

Were Given

The shower which the Y. W.C. A. gave for "Miss Kitchenette” last Tuesday afternoon in the Y. W. room was a success If number, beauty and utility of gifts received are accurate indications of success.

By way of entertain-ment Ruth Hiebert gave two costume readings: "The Horrors of Youth,” and "The Bow-legged Boy.” and Mrs. Anna Tate sang "Little Woman o’ mine,” and responded to applause with an encore number. "Her Gown”

Ruth Blickenstaff took her place behind the gift-laden table and un-wrapped the gifts. Amour them were, an arm, a net of dishes, two sets of tumblers, one net of sherbet glasses. a dishpan. soap, a pyrex baking dish and a tea set of six cups

and saucers which contained no card. Besides these there were inumber-able small articles which are Indis-peasable in the modern kitchen.

When all the gifts had been un wrapped a line was formed pasing by "Miss Kitchenette's" door where Miss Beth Hess served, the guests with punch and wafers.

All present gave their best retards to “Miss Kitchenette” and ex-pressed the desire that she may have a long useful life on the McPherson College Campus.

The days of the three R's in education are past. The three R's remain yet, although we sometimes wonder If they are not slighted a little In the educational whirl. If this change In the educational system, the In-novation of a widely varied curriculum, has made things sort of "muddled" at times and left as to wonder in what direction we are going. there have also been highly desirable additions made by the same change. Through the years between days of 'readin' 'ritin'. and 'rithmetic and the present there have come new duties In the teacher. Nor only the ability to Impart something of the three R's measures a teacher’s success today, but the ability to Impart something of the three C's, character, culture and citizen-ship, also enters Into the measurement at the teacher's attainments.

The opportunity to teach these three C'a does not present itself In a recitation on the subjects, but It is ever present, in the schoolroom and out. Any curricular subject presents opportunity to teach honesty, care-fulness, and sincere effort and to make convictions and decisions. The Ideals of culture, respect and regard for other personalities. desire for the general welfare, and an appreciation of the best In life, all based upon an inner desire for their attainment, may be taught by example better than any other method. By example and by practice is citizenship taught The citizenship of tomorrow depends upon the citizenship of the students of today who will enter upon that tomorrow as leaders Along with the three R's the successful school includes the three C's.


"Boose and the world boosts with you;

Knock and you're on the shelf.

For the world gets sick of the fellow who kicks

And wishes he’d kick himself".

So one writer has put it. and how fittingly it may be applied to college students. College students may he classed under the two hands’ the booster and the knocker. But that would not Include all of the students. There is a class which might he called the "Indifferent" group, behaving' almost as badly as the knockers

Why is it, that no matter what the Issue may be, whatever may he before the students body, there are always a group of boosters, of course, but on the other hand, there are always a group of knockers? Of course it is a person's right In oppose an Issue which he really Is not In favor with, and one may be congratulated upon doing so for It shows initiative and in-dependant thinking A person at this type cannot be called a knocker. But the person Is mind, the real knocker, the kicker, who opposes every issue at stake for the sheer Joy of being on the opposite side, who argues against a thing for argument's sake who is in the habit of opposing everything which comes along Just because be has a "gripe" on and can best got his soul satisfaction through bring on the opposite side, la the one to be condemned.

Do we have a group of knockers and kickers here on our campus? People do not like to be called by such names, but what else fits them when they fight everything which comes ap?

It is only through boosting that we can keep up our school spirit, It is only through boosting that we can get any place in this world. We can't set down and wall for someone to come along and give us the push to goad us on. Neither can we get to the top by knocking and kicking. It is the booster whom we need. We need one who will get behind things and pat them across. We need people to back up the good thing*. We need people to back up the school. It is the booster who will do this.

Which class do you belong to? Are you a booster? Or are you one of the knockers? Knockers don't get anywhere but on the "Shelf". Boosters go on and on. Be a booster.—K. S T, C. Bulletin,

The earliest known celebration of May day are to be found among the records and traditions of Roman holi-days and festivals when those pleas-ure loving people gave vent to their feeling or gladness at the coming of spring in the Floral games which began on April 24 and lasted for a few days. Our own Mad-day festival is more closely connected with those of England fur whose origin we must go back farther than the sixteenth century. Al that time If was the custom for the midde and humble classes to go out early to the morn-ing to gather flowers and foliage with which they would decorate the door of every home in the village. They came to call the hawthorne bloom as the May and spoke of the ceremony as "the bringing home the May", The fairest girl In Ihe village was crowned as the "Queen of the May", Often times ladies and gentlemen Joined In the festivities and there In evidence that once Henry VIII and his Queen Catherine of Aragon Joined with the heads of the corporation of London in the celebra-tion of May day.

The people were not content with crowning a queen of May and decorating the doors of the village so they set up a Maypole as high as the mast of a vessel at one hundred tons from whose top they suspended wreaths of flowers and round which they danced nearly the whole day long. During the Puritan era the Maypoles were uprooted and an and put to all the jollities but after the Restoration they were reerected and all the festivities were carried out.

It is from these customs that we have derived our May fete, with many changes and modifications It is true. Such a festival is a form of nature warship which gives the human heart a way In which to ex-press its gladness al the coming of spring with its new life, hope and vitality.

Luncheon Was Given In Basement of

Brethren Church

As a fitting conclusion to a festival day more than three hundred fifty

seniors of the surrounding hight schools who were the guests of Mc-Pherson college Saturday were en-tertained at a luncheon In the base-ment or the college church at six thirty o'clock Saturday evening.

While a five piece orchestra, which furnished music throughout the meal, played a march, the guests found their places around the tables, Twen-ty girls of the home economics department then served the luncheon which consisted of tomato salad on lettuce. meat and cheese sandwiches pickles. Ice cream, cake, and punch.

Miss Winder Witnessed The Proced-ure Of League Last summer

All Phases Of Books And Book Cul-ture Are Enumerated

H B Frantz. A. B. 1921 Is Field

Secretary of La Verne College.


Although the League is doing a big work, it will not solve all the world's problems. As Miss Winder sees it, in order to find the true institution of pence, we must have a big spirit of friendship. We, too, can help In the solution of permanent peace in on generation by being ambassadors of good Will.    

The secretariat composed of committees and comissions, takes up such problems as the budget of the League, social relations. commerce and armaments. The security that can be found In friendship has not yet been realized by the world. Germany, forced to decrease arms

ments at the close of the World war, looks askance at other nations whose armament are steadily increasing it: spite of the fact that they also promised to decrease them.

That the United States has an enormous responsibility was also shown by the speaker. Other nations of the world cannot understand the actions of our nation which gave the world the League of nations and the World Court and stayed out of both They are watching America for a solution of such problems as peace.

prevention of disease and prohibition.


At the conclusion of the meal after a number of pep songs and yells from the representatives of the various high schools, Dr. V. F. Schwalm welcomed the seniors and the high school faculty members present.

The college male quartette then sang a group of songs after which Miss Mildred Swenson gave the read-ing "Jane'' In costume. Mrs. Anna Tate, instructor in voice sang a solo and Miss Ruth Heibert read "Horror* of Youth” also In costume.

As a representative alumnus, Sam Kurtz *26, who is an instructor In Newton high school, spoke on the things which college life offers out-side of class. Prof. M. A. Hess, Coach George Gardner, and Dean R. E. Mohler each spoke briefly on the opportunities a college given and Mc-Pherson college as the "school of quality". Dr. Schwalm then intro-duced other members of the faculty ihter which the male quartette again entertained the group with a number of songs, concluding the program.

The attentiveness and applause with which the guests received the program and the expression of appre-ciation for the luncheon indicate that the evening's entertainment had been enjoyed and it is hoped a large percent of these high school seniors Will be college freshman here next




The subject discussed at Y. W. C. A. on last Tuesday was "Books". Miss Margaret Drencher was the leader. A violin nolo, "Old Viennese Retrain" was played by Orion High as a prelude." Jessie Churchill spoke on the subject. "Books as Recreation and Inspiration”. She pointed out their constant availability and in-creasing interests as a source of In-spiration. She encouraged all to make reading good books a hobby.

"What GGood Books Can Do For

Doris Ballard enumerated the "Qualities of a Good Book". Fore-most among them she placed truth and beauty, "A good book." she says. "Must be true to life and artistic in presentation",

A girls quartette composed of, Prudence Ihrig. Sylvia Edgecomb,

Mildred Wine. and Sylvia Flory sang "Come Where the Lilies Bloom".



Though brief, Miss Winder's talk touched on the various phases of the Geneva conference and Its relation to the United States in a comprehensive manner.

Stressing the fact that youth. and especially college youth, is interna-tionally minded and vitally concerned about the future welfare of the un-tions of the world, the speaker cited the examples of two other confer-ences which she attended In England and Holland at which representatives from seventeen and thirty-one na-tions respectively met to 'discuss Chrsitianity and war.

A number of people with which Miss Winder met while in Europe have had the Impression that America Is a land of millionaires and sky-scrapers. “We need to do a better piece of advertising for our country.

Composed of a secretariat, a coun-cil. and an assembly, the League of Nations provides ample expression to the internationally minded people who meet at Genova. Italy to discuss and work out solutions For the wel-fare of every nation in the world. More than one hundred fifty men and women from fifty-three nations com-pose the assembly.

A conference of this kind, as Miss Winder pointed out. gives the people a Chance to got acquainted with great personalities and with people of other nations. And she further stated. “We

ple of other countries until we know.
