Miss Lora Trostle, Matron For Last 13 Years— Idaho Lady Takes Her Place

Miss Lora Trostle, for the last 15 years matron of Arnold hall, was forced to resign during the summer upon the advise of her physician. Miss Trostle In the last two years has been experiencing a good deal of ill health and her doctor deemed It necessary to have her give up her work at the College.

To take Miss Trostle's place the management has secured Mrs. Della Holsinger of Nampa, Idaho. Mrs. Holsinger comes to the College very highly recommended by her friends and will be matron in the girls dormitory.



Repainting And Repair Work In Progress Most of The Summer |

Many Improvements and repairs | have been made upon the campus during the summer The Insides of all three dormitories have been thoroughly cleaned and the walls in the hallways and all the woodwork In the obys dormitory has been repainted. New doors and other repairs have added to the general condition of Fahnestock hall.

The woodwork in the business office has been refinishud and the class rooms In the Administration building repainted and redecorated. The Science hall bas also received a thorough cleaning.

New tubes for the boilers In the heating plant have been Installed and It is thought that this will Increase the amount of heat going to each of the buildings. New step approaches have been built on the west and north side of the boys dormitory.



Woe be it unto the motorist that attempts to pass King Carroll when he is on his way home. Woe be it unto Carroll If be attempts to ask us far a ride. But Carroll was brave, his heart was young and full of vim, and his stomach was leading him home to fulfillment.

Carroll was a Walker and had dreamed of an overland trek Into the north. Once upon a time, long, long ago, in fact it was last month and to be still more definite the first of August, Carroll was awakened in the early hours of the morning and that sudden desire to go home was upon him. So to free his burden, he arose, and made final preparations to take off for home. His path was the highway, the way that led to home. The highway was to be his happy-way—that is of course you understand. If he caught a ride—but the day before the mercury had reached 116 in the shade and there was no shade.

Carroll, later to be crowned King, wished to bid his faithful friends farewell so stopped at his Mauds’ place of business on Main street and In fuet nearly forgot he was going home until he realized that Father Time pointed to 9 o’clock and the sun was getting batter and hotter. So Carroll takes his first fling and down on his bended knees be said to the first passing motorist: "Motorist, be merciful to me—a hitch-hiker". And he was merciful for ha hauled the prone body of our dear Carroll for one solid mile and then opened the gate to the wide-open-spaces again.

Once more on bended knee Carroll falls—and surely it must have been Barney Oldfield himself and a merciful Barney at that—for he lifted our Carroll from the dust laden road and placed him in the seat beside him and away they went for 320 miles to our dear Carroll’s home where his mother - met him with opened arms. He simply flew, not literally of coarse, and at 12: 25 he crossed the state line and at 6: 00 o'clock that very same evening the some car drew up In from of his home and stopped and deposited its cargo.

And now Carroll Is crowned the "King of the Hitch-hikers" with all the pomp and fitting ceremonies that go to such a hero. When a Walker's a hiker and a hitch to-boot, then let the wayfaring public be careful.

Three Graduates Of M. C. In The

Party—Visit Eight Nations— Gone Most Of Summer

Eight countries were visited during the summer months, including France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Austria, Belgium, England, and Switzerland. While in Oberammer-gau the group was privileged to witness the famous Passion Play. Many days were spent In the principle cit-ies of Europe. From the gaiety of Paris to the sternness of Rome the girls saw the people of the Old


The party left Montreal Juno 13 and landed in London June 23. A number of days were spent in and near this old city and then they went to Amsterdam unit from there on to Brussels, Cologne, Wiesbaden. Munich, Oberammergau, Innesruck. Luc erne, Interlaken. Montreux, Stresu, Venice, Florence, Rome, Genoa, Nice, Avigron, and Paris were the principal stops, arriving in New York August 9.

Miss Lehman will remain in London and study but will be back the first part of the year.

Binford Says It Is A Big Thing For

The City And The College Costing $2,700.

McPherson College will have night football this fall.

The latter part of August the board of trustees of the College met and upon the recommendations of an investigating committee decided to purchase the necessary flood lights to light the field and In cooperation with the city are furnishing lights for night football.

Coach Melvin J. Binford, who has been working for the flood- lights nearly all summer. Has chocked up the matter with the McPherson Athletic Park officials and they have leaned the grounds to the College with the understanding that the lights will be the property of the College.

The equipment has been purchased from the Giant Manufacturing company, a concern that specializes In this type of lights. The McPher-son system will be one of the best in Kansas and will include a total of 32 flood light projectors that will light the field like day with a total of 38,000 watts. Four poles will be erected on each side of the field and each pole will hold double units with two lights to each unit, making a total of four projectors to each pole. No lights will be placed at the ends of the field.

The lights will be installed and ready for use for the first scheduled game, which will be with the Kearney Teachers of Kearney, Nebraska, September 28. With the Installing of the lights a few changes in the schedule will be required.

The arrangements between the College and the city are of an advantage to the community, the city, and the College. The College has leased, the grounds and will have complete control over the lights. The College has purchased the necessary equipment and the city will install the tights at cost. The equipment and the installation is costing $2,700. The city Water and Electric department will buy the installation and the College will be given three years In which to pay for it, or It may pay for It sooner If It desires. The city depart ment will receive 6 per cent upon their investment, The College Is at an advantage because they will receive their equipment at cost and also will lie given three years In which to pay the cost of Installing-

Coach Binford has stated: "I believe that the Installing of the flood lights will be a big thing for both the city and the College". The night games will allow people of the business districts to attend the contests which otherwise they would be un-able to attend because of their businesses It is thought that the novelty of the night games will attract not only the home people but also people from points In this part of the state.

The entire equipment was to have arrived September 10 and a week will be required to install It. and It Will be completed by September 20.

For 15 years Miss Lora Trostle was railed mother by the girls of Arnold Hall. For 15 years she has tolled and labored among her girls, as she would call them. She has been nurse and doctor and many have been the nights she has been called to the room of some sick girl.

Miss Trostle has witnessed all the sorrows and joys of dormitory life. Death and sickness have both been met with courage and sympathy. She has known secrets dear to some, of m- arriages and engagements. She has not only been a mother to the girls but also to the boys who have come to her to do their tidy mending of torn trousers, they have come with their sorrows and their joys. She has even helped In tolerant love affairs.

Students will miss Miss Trostle and her pleasing manners. They will miss their pleasant office conversations with her. Her personality will live forever among the minds of the students.


Fifteen years ago there were about 260, 000 young persons enrolled In the higher educational Institutions of this country, with about 80, 000 in the graduating classes. There are now about one million college students, and In a decade more there may be In the colleges and universities or the United States as many young persons as there are young persons of college age In the United States.

What was once regarded as the good fortune of the youth who was priveleged In property* or who was exceptionally aggressive or ambitious may soon be the reasonable prospect of almost any or all of them. We are rapidly becoming a nation of college men and woman.

Student mortality is high. But we are not becoming a nation of college graduates. We enter college in large and are graduated to much smaller numbers; a condition out of which comes one of the most per-plexing problems in American education.

The period that has witnessed the remarkable increase In the number of college students has seen increased and increasing dissatisfaction with what the colleges are doing and the manner by which It is done. Alarm and resentment spread because of college student mortality which may be said to have reached the proportions of an acute problem.

The figures themselves tell the mournful story. The academic careers of one-fifth of the 300,000 young men and women who entered the col-leges and universities of this country in the fall of 1929 ended their college career last spring, and their alma mater knows them no more.

When graduation day arrives for the class of 1933 only half of its original members will receive diplomas and the blessings of the president. The other half will be as a tale that Is right badly told. Notwithstanding the knelling and the dirging and the increasing post mortems by college presidents and deans and their personal clinics, the academic death rate remains frightfully high.

These educational specialists do not agree upon any one cause or set of causes of the trouble, but point to many. In their opinion the typical American college student may fall to stagger through on account of any one or numerous Ills that range all the way from adcnolds and asthma to alcohol, athletics, Bacchanalia, bigotry, brains (lack of), bronchitis, care-lessness, cash (too much or not enough), degneracy, despondency, extravagance, family, females, jazz, malaria, motor cars, obesity, osculation, sex appeal, tobacco, vanity, verbosity, week-ends, yodeling and zeros.

It is extraordinary that college students survive when faced with such infirmities as these. These tribulations may or may not explain most of the failures of college students, but many careful observers seem to see the problem closely connected with a wholly different one; an adequate supply of properly prepared and skillful teachers in the college.

These Institutions are filled because democracy has stepped out In another direction, and through public and private effort education has been extended to areas that were once not common. The colleges and universities have urged undaunted youth to enter their gates, but often have failed, or seem to have failed, to make proper provision for the young men and women after they enter.

Fairly adequate material provision has been generally made, perhaps; there are more dormitory, laboratory, library and classroom facilities. And there are more teachers. But better teachers have not always been provided for this flood of students.

Some observers appear to believe that the higher educational institutions are Indifferent, If not openly hostile, to the ideas or suggestion that college teachers should be trained to teach.


We have come to the time of the year when the youth of America is returning to school. The vocation season is ended, schools and colleges are reopening their doors, the youth is returning to pursue his search for troth. More young people are entering our colleges and universities for the first time as Freshmen than ever before in the history of out educational system.

The student body of McPherson college extends a most friendly wel come and sincerest greetings to those who have come to our institution for the first time. It is our hope that this year may be a most profitable year tor you and that you may in some degree achieve the goal for which you have set out to seek.

Again we say greetings lo our school family, McPherson college.

If It were fashionable for our coeds to be nice and plump it would certainly take all our wheat surplus to feed them.

After the summer vacation we are convinced of our attractive person-ability. A million chiggers can't be wrong.

After noticing a few of these collegiate motor cars around the campus we think the handiest thing to have around would be a pull with the police.

A University of Missouri girl student is required to learn how to swim before she can be graduated, to doubt so in case she goes for a canoe ride she can walk home.

WELCOME TO FRESHMEN Did you kiss your ma goodbye?

Did you kind of want to cry When you thought of leaving all your Friends at home?

Did you s'pose when you came here That you'd ever need to fear That sometimes you're sure to wish you hadn't come?

Did you really calculate That you wouldn't have a date Just because you're new to college life this fall?

Did you s'pose the faculty Wouldn't have the tact to see That you're needing Just a little help --that's all?     

Did you come prepared to stand All the flunks that you might land Just because some certain teacher was a man?

Then throw off hallucination And with no more hesitation Be the life of this old college. If you

A Lincoln. Nebraska girl sued young men who squeezed her so hard he broke three ribs. Who says those Nebraska lads pet—and bow,

A Kansas man, aged 92 says he never smoked, chewed, drank alcoholic beverages, attendad a movie or kissed a girl. Then what's the use of living ninety-two year*? -

We saw one collegiate model T Ford on the campus yesterday morning that bore this sign; "You may not believe St, but this car once belonged to a Detroit billionaide".

An Oklahoma slayer, about to be electrocuted for murdering a man, has written big view of capital punishment for an Oklahoma City newspaper. He is against that farm of punishment.

We read where a majority of the University of Kansas co-eds express a preference for "careers" over marriage, and the usual proportion of them doubtless will enter upon one by proxy.

The Girls Want MEN, MANLY men, and GENTLE men. Men Want the Girls to Go Slower and Last Longer. Be Good Sports! Don't Fly Off the Handle—

You May get a Splinter. Go Easy.

We Welcome you to McPherson

"Nothing to do! Don't know anyone— Can't take what I want too! Classes start tomorrow! With—I—hadn't—come! " Poor little freshie!

But cheer up! Everyone of these upperc lassmen went through the same ordeal and felt just as you do. And down underneath the gay coat of social ease and self-confidence, they are wanting to help you get off onto the right foot. They remember the pangs of homesickness that made them feel sick all over and caused their heart to contract suddenly rise with a painfulness that nearly choked them. Don't think that you are the first person who ever felt that way. What Is more— every Other freshman is experiencing It, so why not find one of them and cheer each other up? You'll feel better. Wear a smile; say 'Hello' whether you know the other person or not; meet friendly advances half way, and soon you'll feel at home.

The pass word to social acceptance in college Is MIX. Stay with groups. Don't Isolate yourself or you'll cheek off. You aren’t known here and so will not be hunted out as you wore nt home. You must prove yourself to us. To us you are zero and we can measure your ability only as you make the thermometer of your activity rise. So warm up and show us what you are.

and take.

Take advantage of your opportunities; Never after college does the average person have such splendid opportunities lo hear good music, read good books, hear good speakers, meet fine people—In short, come la contact with culture. Not the least of these advantages is the one offered twice each Sunday In the church on the earner. Sunday school and Christian Endeavor are among the host and give you a chance at religious self expression. Genuine worship Is seldom found as It is In tho college church. If you prefer other churches, find them. But don't think that because you are away from home that you need no religious influence. You need it worse than ever before, and the lives of campus leaders will prove It,

Freshmen and new students of McPherson college we welcome you

Don't forget what you came to college for! Once in the social whirl, you may forget that this is an Institution of learning rather than a fashionable winter resort. We, as older students In "The School of Quality", expect you to keep your Individual scholarship up to a standard that will not embarrass us, our instructors, or you at a later date. The good student is always respected, while the "Dumdora" is tolerated. So, occasionally, it might he well to study, even if you can bluff the professors into thinking you have when you haven't. Bluffs fool themselves more than the professors. They aren't all as dumb as they look.

Girls, don’t start out to fast. If that hot little fresh man doesn’t ask you for a date the first week, maybe a nice, dignified upperclassman will the second. The dazzler who knows no modesty never wears well with any of the desirable male elig-ibles, so go a little slow and last longer. Commencement Is held at the end of four years rather than a wedding. Be sweet. attractive and friendly, but don't be hilarious, brazen and soft.

Mon, you are past the days of lif-ensive hardness that marks the awkward adolescent. You are expected to show the marks of refinement and culture. Trustworthiness and chiv- airy are necessary If you would make good among your school mates. You may attract attention for the time by being boisterous, rude and egoistical, but you will lose much. In respect and confidence. It Is only a little thing to be manly and careful of table manners or classroom conduct. It may try your patience to stand and hold doors, or push chairs UP to the table, or give up your place to a girl In a crowded dining hall, hut you will he well repaid. Don’t be sissy or soft. We want MEN, MANLY men, GENTLE men.

Be good sports! Though some of the initiation stunts and require. ments may seem unreasonable, don't fly off the handle—you may get a splinter. Show yourself a better sport than the fellow who requires it. Remember, you will have your chance next, year, and usually tho bully Is the one who was a poor sport in his day of trail. It Is all In fun though you may fail to see the Joke —but you may feel It. Sometimes one can ace the joke by looking In n mirror.

Be good citizens! Rules and regulations are much for the good of all, by persons whose experience has taught them what seems best. You can evade the rules, of course, If you possess average Intelligence; but if you won’t respect the other fellow's rights, you have no right to mingle with society, especially society that is the result of sacrifice end labor an the part of others. Rules gov-erning use of books, dining room etiquet, campus conduct, retiring and study hours, and curriculum are made that we may get along with j a minimum of friction. Don't for-get that society demands both give!

heartily. All summer we have looked forward to returning and finding you and getting acquainted with you. The faculty and management have worked and planned to get you here and care for you properly. Student organizations have tried to anticipate your social needs and meet them. Individuals are making a special effort to welcome you. We want you to love out school as we do. You have come to the School of Quality. You have honored It by choosing to come. Let It honor you by influencing you Into a greater and larger life.     '
