Other business was transacted. Reuben Bowman, M club representative, was elected by the council to represent the council on the athletic board.

It was voted that Harold Fasnacht

be responsible for the care of the tennis courts.

A committee was appointed to meet with the faculty committee to discuss the changing of closing hours

Lyceum and Drama    11%    99

Debate and Oratory 4% 36

Coach George Gardner spoke on the subject. "The Value of Athletics in College and Their Influence After College”, to the members of the

Y. M C A. last Tuesday morning on the fourth floor of Harnly Hall. De-votions were led by Glen Harris. Orion High played a violin solo.

Coach Gardner, took the game of football and told some of the bene-fits a man could derive from the

game. Football teaches men les-sons which they can not learn any other place. The lessons it teaches are fundamental in after life and absolutely necessary If one is to make a success.

Some of the lessons to be learned from the game are:

1. It teaches men to be courageous. A man must be brave if he is to stand the storm and temptation of modern life.

2. It teaches men to cooperate and work together. It is a funda-mental of success to cooperate.

3.    Football teaches men to be loyal to their school, coach, and fellow players.

4.    Play fair and square and obey the rules of the game. The same is true in the game of life.

5. Football develops strong physical bodies.


Prof. J. A, Blair attended the an-nual meeting of the Association of Kansas Teachers of Education at Topeka last Saturday. Sept. 30.

At the request of the state superintendent the meeting was held in that office. The association considered mainly the codifying of all present school laws to present to the neat state legislature. The purpose of such an action is to eliminate inconsistencies and to make the present laws mors easily understood.

Prof. Blair was re-elected secretary of the association, an office be has held the past two years.

Dr. O. L. Croxel of Wichita university is chairman.


The Y. W. C. A. cabinet met at six thirty o’clock last Wednesday evening. Plans were discussed for the Spanish festival to be held on the campus next Tuesday evening.

Seventeen Cars Required To Transport Faculty and Families To Picnic Grounds.


Steak, Weiners, Buns, Pickles, Sal-ads, and Watermelons Were De-voured By Hungry Instructors

The size of the faculty of Mc-Pherson College evidently increased with the student enrollment for sev-

enteen cars were necessary to trans-port the members of that august body, together with their families, from the college campus where they must maintain their dignity to the picnic ground at Twin Elms where they might cast off their mantles of exemplary behavior and enjoy themselves in a game of baseball. They participated also in another all-American sport, namely, that one which centered around the rustic tables and benches.

A few members of the family were so engrossed in their duties that they could not be lured away by the truant ones at 3:30 but joined the crowd in time to partake of the steak and weiners which were, roasted over the bonfires under the expert direction of a member of the faculty who, during the past year, has had a great deal of experience in that method of cooking. Besides the meat, which was said to be delicious, there were buns, brown bread, pickles, salads and watermelons to help the tired professors forget their worries as well as any stiff, muscles or injured ankles which might have resulted from a too active interest in the ball game.

Just before leaving their bonfires the group formed a closed circle and sang "O Sacred Truth." Various members of the faculty reported that their was a "good'' picnic.

“Fight. Bulldogs, fight! That's it! Yes. more than three hundred filled the gymnasium Iast Thursday morning for the initial pep meeting of the year. The new cheer leaders show ability and the band gives a big impetus to the pep. Coach George Gardner and Melvin Miller were the orators of the occasion.

The new cheer leaders. Alberta Hovis and Ralph Frants show the needed ability for creating pep for our smashing football line.

Oh boy, what a hand! More than fifteen instruments to urge the Bull-dogs on end to give all they have in fight to the opposing team. This is

the first baud M. C. has had for three years. The band is playing all of the college and pep songs.

Coach Gardner said he wouldn't dare to make any predictions as to

how the Quaker games would come

out but he would say that Friends are going to fight to defend their home goal.

Melvin Miller. introduced as the second Bryan, spoke in behalf of the team. Miller said. "You all want to be at Wichita to see us knock the quacks out of them Quakers.

Who said that the Freshmen couldn't yell? Under the leaderahlp of Guy Hayes they came down with one voice on all of the yells and songs. They are fast transforming themselves Into fighting Bulldogs ever ready to uphold old M. C.

McPherson College and Kansas Weslayan University are realizing like experiences this fall when both enter a new chapel for the first time.

The fellowship article appeared in the editorial column of the Wesleyan

Advance and also interest M.

C. students:

At last the students of Wesleyan

are privileged to go to chapel in the new Sams Memorial chapel. Yes it Is a privilege, but along with the privilege comes the question, "for what is the new chapel to be used?" Are we going to use it for all sorts of activities, band practices as an-nounced the other day. meetings of groups of all kinds, pep meetings and rallies and other things of this nature which destroys its sacredness and deeper meaning for us? or are we going to use the chapel some-what as we would a church,—a place to go each day far a little medita-tion, that our thoughts may be led into the deeper and more vital channels of life, a place to build the "Wesleyan Spirit" into the spirit of Christ?

It is an obvious fact that, after the cheer leader has worked the student body up into a high spirit of hatred for the opposing team, the speaker cannot easily gain the internet of the audience and lead their inter-ests to things in keeping with the atmosphere which the chapel decoration presents.    Su rely it would be

a great pity to use the Sams Memor-ial Chapel merely as a convenient meeting place and pep hall whan it has been founded and decorated for the purpose of bringing a more re-ligious influence onto the campus.

In the next few months the stu-dent body at Wesleyan will choose what the chapel will mean to its members. Let us weigh carefully the values of each use before choos-ing the one or the other.


The McPherson College year book for nineteen hundred twenty nine will undoubtedly be the most unusual annual ever published by the student Council. The book has many features which are years in advance of the conventional college memory book. According to Robert Puckett, editor of this year's Quad-rangle, everything is entirely differ-ent but the same.

Originality marks every depart-ment of the book. Even the faculty pictures will not appear in their us-

ual places. Convention seems to

have been put aside in the planning of this unique annual.

The art work is of the modern type and is the product of the brush of Glen Golton, a leading fig-ure in art circles of this country.

Mr. Colton is located in Wichita, Kansas with the Mid Continent Art and Engraving Company. Many of his products have been featured on the covers of national magazines. The unique art work in the nineteen twenty-nine Quadrangle is fresh and vivid, with the new thought of today.    In fact, the theme of the

book is briefly, "Today."

The Quadrangle was planned during the past summer vacation. It marks the advent of a new type of memory book. The year book staff which was announced last Monday to enthusiastic over the plans as sketched during the first meeting.

I an not losing faith in human na-ture, but after closely observing the

sign board for the last three weeks. I notice that there are a lot more articles advertised "lost" than there are "found. "

Let the man who does not wish to

be idle fall in love.

The speaker was waxing eloquent, and after his peroation on women’s rights he said: "When they take our girls, as they threaten, away from, the coeducational colleges, what will follow? What will follow I re-

A loud masculine voice in the aud-ience: "I will. "

Prisoner: Your honor, I was putting in the dime.

Perhaps this should be placed just above the editorial staff: "Blessed are the low in mind for they shall edit the paper.”

Ruth B.: Did you have a good time last night?

Floy B.: Naw! I got too much will power.

HONOR SYSTEM A few years ago a number of col-leges in this country adopted the "honor system" which required stu-dents taking examinations to certify thal so aid had been received. In addition the "honor system" rested upon the expectation that a student, observing another in the act of "cribbing'’ would report the guilty

Most students objected to the ne-cessity of reporting others and this part of the system has been a gen-

A meeting of the Senior class was

called for Friday morning. October

I5th at eight o'clock by Elmer Mc-Gonigle, the class president. Sev-eral items of business were present-

ed, which it was felt should have the

early attention of the class.

Ruth Hiebert. Lois Dell and Mar-via Steffen were elected as a com-mittee to select a play to be pre-sented in the spring. Committees were also elected to secure class jewelry for those who. for various

reasons, have not yet obtained theirs, and to secure caps and gowns. Roy Frantz, class treasurer, in a few words reported on the financial condition of the class, and upon the progress of the recent campaign to class dues.


The Women's Athletic Association held a meeting for all girls last Thursday morning at ten o'clock. The purpose of the meeting was to inform the new lady students of ts purpose and activities.

Miss Doris Ballard spoke on the purpose of the W. A. A. She stated that the organization proposes to promote interest in gymnastic and athletic activities as a means of promoting    physical    efficiency,

scholarship and good fellowship among its members.

The point system was then ex-plained by Miss Velma Wine. She told how one may become a member of the organisation, the significance of the point system, and the number of points obtained for each activity. Soccer season is now open to the girls, and Miss Iva Crumpacker spoke briefly on the subject of soc-cer, its place in the athletics spon-

sored by the W. A. A., and its sim-larity to football.

Are we living up to the best that Is in us?" was the question presented to the students by President Schwalm in chapel Friday.

Dr. J. J Yoder read various pass-ages of scripture to justify his em-phasis on the ‘‘plain common old word work, which is necessary to success In any sphere of life."

With doubt and dismay you are smitten,

You think there's no chance for you son ?

Why the best books haven’t been written,

The best tune hasn't been played yet,

Cheer up for the world is young.

No chance? Why the world Is Just eager

For the things you ought to create;

Its store of true wealth Is still meager,

Its needs are Incessant and great;

It yearns for more power and beauty.

More laughter and love and


More loyalty, labor, and duty,

Hours will come when we’ll yearn for home

McPherson Scored First Touchdown In a Score of 12 to 7.

In a ragged game between Mc-Pherson College and Friends Univer-sity, McPherson took the short end of a score of 12 to 7

Wells again plays a brilliant game for McPherson. He easily is classed as the outstanding player on either team with McMunn of Friends com-ing next: MrCready of Friends also played a nice game for Friends. The McPherson boys all showed some good football but at times seemed to play a loos game. This was shown by several fumbles at very critical times. Friends also made several errors but not at such critical moments of the game.

The first of the game McPherson showed some splendid line gains which resulted in the Bull Dogs' touchdown. The second quarter opened with some good marching to-wards Friends' goal line but when McPherson tried to pass they seemed to have lost the Jinx as "Whitelaw of Friends grabbed one of the Bulldog passes and made a good gain and almost a touch down. Miller spoiled Whitelaw's good inten-tions by downing him on the Bull-dogs' 20 yard line. After a five

yard line gain the Quakers passed to their first touchdown.

The third quarter was a test of skirmaging strength on both teams until Salley again passed to White-law for a second touchdown on a fifteen yard run. McPherson opened the fourth quarter with some splendid passing and smashing. Nonken showed some neat work at

this period but spoiled his showing

by his tumble that resulted in a good

gain to the Quaker yardage.

Some of the boys that were Injured in the first game of the season should be back in by that time for some good hard work. Some of those injured at Ada played at Wichita but were not In their best of condition.

Since this is the first home game and the first chance for McPherson to see their team in action, a large turn out is expected to be on the sidelines next Saturday.
