Banquet Was Held In The Basement Of The Brethren Church


Tables Radiated From The Garden In The Center Of The Room

The basement auditorium of the Brethren Church was transformed Into a beautiful garden In which the tables for the Junior-Senior banquet were set Friday evening at seven o'clock. The entire room was enclosed in lattice work which was spaced with small trees and In which green vines were interwoven. In the center of the room was a garden set off from the tables by a white picket fence. A cobble stone walk ted from a gate In the fence around a tulip-bordered pool containing gold fish and into which water from a rock fountain was continually running-Lights were so arranged around the edge of the pool that they were re-flected in the water. thus making the pool the center of attraction. Ferns were placed at various points around the edge of the garden. The most unique and beautiful features of the garden were the enormous boquets of Madonna lillies which some mem-bers of the Junior class received from their homes in Louisiana. A large basket of lillies was placed at each end of the garden and other boquets were arranged along the side fences. The tables, which radiat-ed from the central garden were decorated with baskets of roses, sweet peas, and rose candles In silver colored holders. Small bou-

quets of rose sweet peas tied with silver paperware placed at each table as favors.

The guests assembled In an up-stairs room of the church and at a little after seven were escorted down to the bouquet room by Mr. Keith Mayes. Junior class president, and Miss Della Lehman, class sponsor. During the time that the guests were finding their places Miss Helen Eber-ly played softly on the piano which was almost hidden behind the lattice work.

The serving was done by fourteen waitresses and waiters picked from the Freshman and Sophomore classes The seven girls wore simple organdy dressed In pastel colors and their partners were dressed in white trousers and black Jackets.

Keith Hayes, as toast master cleverly Introduced each person on the program. Velma Wine, vice-president. extended the welcome to the Seniors and Elmar McGonigle. class president, responded. The program consisted of readings by the Misses Della Lehman and Mildred Swenson. a flute solo by Lawrence Turner, and two numbers by the college male quartette Toasts were given by Bernice McClellan. Harold Melchert and Doris Ballard. The garden theme was carried out In the entire program.

Besides the invited guests present at the dinner In the home economics department given by the foods class last Tuesday afternoon at five o'clock, curiosity lurked about throughout the whole affair. A pro-gram somewhat suggestive of secrets was given after the three course dinner Miss Lila Fields acted as toastmistress and Introduced the following numbers;

"Two Halves in Every Nut"—John Lehman.

"Nutty News’*—Harold Crist.

"Courtship Advice"—Ruth Blick-enstaff.

" Twas Here That I Dreamed Dear of You"—Arlene Saylor and Euegnia Dawson.

"The Last Chance —Warren Sis-lar.

Then the nutshells tied with ribbon. which had caused much conjee-turing on the part of the guests, were opened and found to contain a slip of paper which read. "Announcing— It's time to Adjourn". The announce-ment was fulfilled after the exchange of various speculations which had grown out of the nature of the pro-gram.

A color scheme of orchid and yellow were delightfully carried out In the table decorations and menu. The menu Included: golden apple cocktail, breaded veal cutlets, baked potatoes In half shell, wax beans. cheese In lemon rings, grape ho, grape fruit salad, bow knot rolls, lemon pudding, cake, coffee and bon bons.

Peat Is A Canadian World War Veteran

Lloyd Johnson and Dwight Stutz-man. and Melda Mohler and Ruth Hofman motored Wichita Sunday afternoon.

That the hope for future peace lies in the education of the youth of to-day concerning the reasons for hal red of war was vividly brought before the public mind last Tuesday night when Private Peat lectured on

What Price Glory" at the city auditorium. This lecturer, a participant In the World War In a Canadian regiment and now a resident of Florida, graphically Illustrated the honors experienced In the world combat which Involved the wholesale slaugther of men, women and child ren.

Private Peat stated that economic situations were the basic causes of the recent war and pointed out its  inevitableness. His reasons for ad-vocating future peace included not only the physical conditions which must necessarily be endured by Its participants, but also Its lasting ef-rects upon the civilizations of the earth and Its utter unreasonableness. He further state that if another World War could be presented in the coming twenty-five years, there

Mrs. John Luke Hoff was hostess at a tea Sunday afternoon from four till five thirty in honor of the second birthday of her daughter. Miss Mary Jo. The guests were the senior girls of the college. By way of entertain-ment Miss Mercie Shatto gave a reading and Miss Rath Hiebert read two pianologues.

Rev. Kinzie of Navarre and Rev. Nickodemus of Ohio were McPherson visitors last Thursday.

Banquets are great affairs In that they influence gossip in numerous quantities pro and con. Everyone wants to know If everyone else has a date and If so who It is "Sure you felt me who yours is and I'll tell you who mine is. Now be sure not to tell because net everyone needs to know our business".

The dresses are sure to be the main topic of conversation weeks before of speculation and days after of thoughtful (?) criticism. “Huh! I didn't think she had such a hot dress It certainly looked cheap to me. I’ll bet she got It In Sears and Roebuck It probably didn't cost half she said it did. Bat didn't so-and-so have the sweetest dress? It just looked dar-ling on her!” Such are hypocrite of the first water.

The pains that girls take with their appearance is quite pathetic at times because lots of beauty parlors can only work with material at hand and even they cannot make something out of nothing. You can get flattery from them bet It costs you. It is necessary to admit that facials, massages shampoos. manicures. and finger waves all help but you can't fool Nature so why try But It Is gratifying to know that you did your best to look pretty and If roar make-up runs. slips and slides It is only be-

cause you are excited. It Is easy to get excited over banquets. they come so seldom.

Really you must not get scared at the sliver ware because the only damage it can do is to tarnish your fingers most likely. A half hour ses-sion with Emily Post    should remove

all trials and tribulations. She explicitly outlines in detail the proper im-plements to use in the manipulation of the food. However eating should not be such a serious offense so why don such a meloncholy expression when ready to excavate the cocktail It Is such an Innocent little cocktail and means no harm. It is better to don a bathing suit If you have to dive after the cherry at the bottom of the glass. Be sure to use the spoon gently as It was not meant for a shovel.

Then again why sit so tensely erect and talk so stiltedly to your partner: He won't bite anything ex-cept the pressed chicken and prob ably is as scared as you so put him at his ease and be will bless you and your postenty forever. Amen' The popular person at a banquet Is one who can forget himself and his date and who can be funny and entertain-ment.

Banquets are really trials at times especially when a meal is served that is difficult to cut gracefully. You

have In handle your knife so that it will not squirt gravy in your neighbor's eye Such meat is like the pro-verbial grapefruit. it has ambitions to be in the public eye. Of course if soup Is served you always have the person who parities his soup — probably mistaking it for Listerine-is true index his character. he is the one out of every five. Olives, too should be treated with courtesy never stick the seeds down your neighbor's coat collar. Coffee should not be. served with a spoon because is such a temptation to leave It within the cup, Mints are meant to be eaten. not to be looked at.

Banquets are not half bad if a little horse sense Is used. You should only be natural If the crowd can stand your being natural without throwing you out, Use your lead for something else than to hang bril-liants, on and you will be a social suc-cess. Above all things do not use an oyster fork to consume your cocktail with and let the dinner follow Its courses as there are usually five or six of them. Remember Emily Post Is always at your service—a new edition every year guaranteed not to have a typographical error of having the salad fork to eat fish with and she is to be trusted Fear not boys and girls, fear not.

I suggest that chapel speakers be handed a card on which is printed the following:

Dear Speaker We are aware:

1. That it thrills you when you look Into our eager faces.

2. That our student body is the best looking In the U. S. a. and western civilized Europe,

3. That we want a short speech so that we may rush to after-chapel classes

4. That we are the leaders or the

next generation

5. That a future president is among us.

6. That there were once two Irishmen—Pat and Mike.

When old magazines are discarded little thought is given the fact that they may be of some use. The library appreciates the gift of magazines for Its file. Including any worthwhile reading material either on the library subscription list or not. Extra files are convenient for users of a library and often the library files of any magazine become Incomplete for various reasons. Little trouble it is to turn in the librarian any old maga-zines which are no longer of use to the owner In comparison to the worth which such material may be, Incidentally, careful and discreet use of library magazines and their prompt return make for complete files and useful and dependable source of material.


To attempt to say anything Here that is new concerning Mother's Day would be futile, however a reminder In students that Mother's Day comes again next Sunday might not be so futile. Some little remembrance that lets Mother know that you remember her especially on the day set aside fro her honor will brink immeasurable joy to her heart. Although the debts we feel we owe our Mothers can never be paid, by constant at-tention and observance of such days for Mother we may tell her of our desire to repay that debt and express our gratitude for her sacrifices that have become our blessings. The means need to let Mother know she is in our thoughts may vary from a sincere letter of appreciation to an expensive bouquet of rare flowers, but whatever the means let there be an expressions of gratitude and appreciation.

There are pleasant entertainments In the main building. horseback riding, tennis. hiking, volley-ball and other recreation all carried on In the grandeur of the mountains and making for the finest kind of comradeship which is far removed from the superficial of many college relationships. Probably the most dynamic force of the con-ference comes from the great leaders who are present and who might with the students.

One of the most outstanding persons who Is to be at Estes is Powers Hapsgood. to whom Sherwood Eddy  often referred In his recent visit to our campus. This young man. a Har-vard graduate. has gives up wealth. social position, had economic secur -ity in order to identify himself With mine workers Dr. Mendenhall, with whom we an acquainted through our association with the Friends'

Each day you live

Means one day more of life in her

Each thought you give Means more than honors can confer,

For mother dies

Of Cups Won At Salina Meet

Parts of two chapel services last week were given over to the service In recognition of the achievements of the Bulldogs athletic teams. Mon-dat Dr. J. J. Yoder, representing the Board of Trustees of McPherson Col-lege, after railing each of the Basket-ball men to the chapel platform, ex-pressed the appreciation of the Board he represented for the splendid work these boys had done on their advertising the school during the past season.

The last meeting of the Chemistry

Society. Thursday. May 2. closed the series of meetings for the school year. In looking back over the activi-ties of the society a very marked ad-vance is realized. The following sta-tistics prove very interesting,

During the school year thirteen meetings have been held with an average attendance of 65.6. in 1926 the average attendance was 18 1/11, In 1927 it was 48 5/9. and in 1928, 35.7. The above shows a decided In-crease in attendance over former years.

During the school year twenty-nine talks were given on different phases of chemistry. Six demonstrations of a Varied nature were presented. One of the most interesting feature was te seven motion picture reels. referring directly to chemistry, that were shown.

The achievements of the society this year have been increased over former years. More Interest and en-thusiasm has been apparent and the steady advance in future years seems assured.



A special service for the student body was held at the church on Sun-day night, Students' Night has been observed In preceding years near the close of the term. Inspiration was received from special numbers given by the students body and from the address given by Rev.

Vet ma Eldridge, Leta Wine, and Ehtel Sherfy. Miss Hazel Falls led the opening hymns. Mr. Glenn Harris conducted the devotionals.

The theme of the address was "The Fulfillment of Life". "The theme.' said Rev. Richards. "Is a pleasant one to discuss because of Its positive, constructive aspect, its universal appeal and application, and because It Is not ’musty' with ’musts' and must nots,’ nor "shallow* with "shalls" and "shall nots" The criteria for the complete, lasting, amd satis-fying fulfillment Of life, he pointed out. are as follows; We must know ourselves; we must develop helpful relationships with our fellow men

we must learn to draw upon the resources of the soul. He admits that we find ourselves by the "trial and error" method, but Insight that It should not be erroneous too long.

For track men a spe-cial menu of eggs, toast, milk, and tea was served. Misses Beth Hess. Lila Eberly. and Ruth Blickenstaff were In charge of the cafeteria with many of the other girls assisting.
