Wells, Miller, and Haws

Scored for the Bulldogs


The First Quarter Was Scoreless

But In The Second, Wells Kicked A Field Goal

The McPherson Bulldog jumped out of the slump last Saturday when they showed Bethel under at New-ton with a 23-0 score. Although not all of the Bulldog regulars were in the entire game, the McPherson eleven managed to plough across the gridiron for three touchdowns.

The following is a Newton ac-count of the game as it was played:

"Newton, Kansas., Nov. 3—Bethel College lost another conference foot-ball game here today when the Mc-Pherson Bulldogs won by a score of 23 to 0. The first quarter was

scoreless, but in the second the Bull-dogs got in position and Wells, the quarterback, kicked a field goal for the first counter. Later a pass, fromm Wells to Miller, put Miller ov-er for a touchdown. In the third quarter Wells caught a Bethel short punt and carried it over. He also kicked the extra point. Haws went over for another touchdown in the fourth quarter after Bethel had fumbled a punt.

An offside killed the point Haws also provided a thrill just be-fore the final whistle intercept-ing a pass and carrying it forty yards before being tackled.

Letter Comments on Certain Forms

Of Billboard Advertising.

The following letter from one of

the former outstanding athletes of McPherson College is somewhat in-dicative of the sentiment concern-ing certain forms of billboard ad-

vertising. The letter reads:

"Nampa, Idaho, Oct. 14, 1928. "Dean Mohler,

McPherson College, Kans.

"Dean Prof.,

"Doubtless you have seen and perhaps you have registered the same feeling as I that the nationwide billboard advertising of the American Tobacco Trust has gone so far as to get famous athletes such an Ernie Nevers, Stanford Idol, to say, "I agree with the doctors, Luck-ies are less harmful than the rest." He appears life size on the billboard in football attire. In sight of the local gridiron and says, "Look at me

American in 1926."

"You can imagine the incalculable damage to youth and to the old game we love such an attitude on the part of athletes will do. If Ernie Nevers alone were the sole offender, we would forget it, but there are many others. Coach "Chic" Meehan of Columbia, Olympic stars, and an All American of Princeton in '24 say the same thing.

"I'm sure, you as a coach, an ath-lete and a leader will do all within your power to influence present day athletes to realize their responsibil-tiy to society even though their ath-

Itis too late to change the has-beeners. It is up to the present and future young men to make or to ruin the sport life of the nation. "Yours sincerely,

A flapper's war-cry: "Two arms,

two-arms, fall in, fall in." have taken on the characteristics of a museum, as it abounds in an-tiques-- among which is a Ford. The means by which this collection was appropiated is still in the dark, but

unscrupulous persons must have coaxed the Ford there against its will.

To cap the climax, the Science Hall stubbornly refused to admit stu-dents of history and the sciences

es. Instead, they were forced to stand out in the elements, which were rather Democratic in character. Even some professors lost their complaisance and were seen to rath-er forcibly express their sentiments --by facial expression only.

Moral: If students were inclined to arise in the early morning to study as strenuous efforts as they performed the above--

then indeed this campus would be-come a modern Utopia, wherein all collegiated would make A's even unto football men and freshmen. Amen!

Delbert Kelly, weight 96 defend-ed his title as heavyweight boxing champion against the onslaught of Clarence Zink, weight 226, in a match refereed by Barney Swain. The match was so furiously contested that Manager Lindell was several  times forced to administer stimulants to the weakening Zink, and Haves manager of the champion  used the sponge and towel quite furiously. In the first round Kelley was on the defensive but in the second he rallied and punished Zink so severely that he fell to his knees several times. In the third round, the fast-tiring King was off

paper, candy and gum wrappers, and much other rubbish litter the halls of the campus buildings is really questionable as a means to attain such a position.

The most casual observer can see the wastepaper receptacles placed about the halls. They were not put there primarily for decorative pur-poses either, To ferret out the reason why wastepaper does not find its way to the proper containers requires the application of some psy-


One reason that has been suggested, dropping wastepaper anywhere saves time. Perhaps another might be it saves energy to drop a gum or candy wrapper any place that is convenient to let it fall. The third suggested explanation is that students are so engrossed in solving the philosophical problems of the day besides occasionally deciding whether or not to attend the next social function or doing some menial calculations concerning absences, which will determine the possibili-ties of skipping the next class, that no thought is given the discarded scraps and remnants that have only one remaining mission in life—to kindle a bonfire.

Thoughtfulness is one of the first marks of culture. The lack of it explains itself. Reasons for exhibiting such thoughtfulness should be evident However, rehearsals some-times serve as reminders.

Visitors often frequent our halls. What effect do the rubbish littered halls produce? The collection of such is also a fire danger. A neat and clean appearance, acquired by everyone properly disposing of all wastepaper, which requires only a space of time less than one minute, is conducive to an atmosphere that inspires thoughfulness, care, and a general pleasantness of surroundings.

“Instead of dormitories there was a general fund and each student was

allowed to draw so much from this fund periodically for his need. The amount was so small that there is no doubt but that hash was com-mon item in the students' menu. However, all stinginess was not displayed by the management. The students become so stingy that they did not contribute sufficient amount to the masters who labored to lecture to them. Therefore, it became

"In these days too evidently all men did not belong to the Y. M. C. A., for it was necessary to lay down rules of conduct. All men were to live like clerics or saints, fighting and bad language should not be in order. Songs of love or stories of adventures in love might be suggestive so they were also taboo. Pep meetings or shoutings as it was then termed were prohibited as they would disturb students writing or

“In spile of these rules students did fight, sometimes it was with townsmen. Occasionally, a few were murdered. Evidently this substituted for football. With due credit to the church often a few were ex-

“Students of this time were all wearing the tonaure of cleric. This was compulsory and not style.

"When a student desired a degree he was required to swear that they had read all the logic texts ex-cept one or two especially difficult ones. There was no time limit on one's stay at the university, and undoubtedly some good work was done by individuals who settled in the university."


A series of conferences and pro-

grams embodying those things of paramount interest to the athletic woman constituted the state convention at the Women's Athletic Associations of Kansas held at Lawrence last Friday and Saturday. About seventy-five delegates representing practically every college in the state were present.

Registration took place Thursday evening and the remainder of the evening was given over to entertainment and getting acquainted.


Discussion on “Play day" and in-tra-mural sports were then held. The former discussion resulted in the decision of the meeting that each college shall sponsor a play day each year in which nearby high schools may participate. It was also decided that a number of col-leges together should hold a college play day.

The program Friday afternoon consisted mainly in round table discussions of the different sports. Late in the afternoon the delegates were privileged to watch an exhibition match of teen kolts, a new in-door game which resembles tennis,

We can't see the path if a heavy fog forever protrudes. Nor can we consider ideas unless there is complete freedom of expression.

That is one reason Communism or Fascism with its dictatorship is so reprehensible to one who detests dogmatism, narrowness, bigotry, ego-tism. It means you must bold only certain ideas—those of the ones who dictate—or none. It means surrender of the will. It is fundamentalism all over again—only car-ried over into another field.

Just as the minister used to think for his congregation—and the Bible used to think for him—so does the Communist permit Mark's teaching to think for him in a stale interpretation.

Not that Mark's teachings or the Bible are without value. We know they are indispensable, that they have more to do with our lives than we ever dreamed. Books which have so profoundly affected the people of the world must have some power, some glimmer of truth.

We do not accept either any more without some debate in our own mind. We know that there is controversy, misunderstanding, or there would be no need for the classes we attend on Sunday morning or the league we attend on Sunday night.

Whenever we blindly accept any authority other than our own minds we are again "converts'* to a religion or an ism—which acts as an opiate upon the mind and blinds it.

to worldly things.

But in the final analysis we must each of us be our own interpreter. We must find truth (whatever truth is) in our own way. What more fin-al authority as to thought and act is there to whom we may have re-dress?

Placecards bearing the name of some character whom each had por-trayed pointed out to eleven mem-bers of the Thespian club the places they were to take at the dinner table which was set in the parlor of the Brethren church Saturday, Novem-ber 3, at 7 o'clock P.

Each one present was asked to give a characterization of some well-known dramatic character and the others were to guess what character was being presented. Shakespearean characters were the most popular and all varieties from Iago to Portia were presented. Miss Dell had se-cured from records of famous scenes from Shakespearean drama which were reproduced by means of a portable Orthophonic Victrola.
