"The Pilgrims" Shown In Chapel To 100 students

McPherson college will again conduct a "model" grade school during the summer sessions for the purpose of training prospective teachers. The number of children to be used this summer is limited.

Last summer the campus school accommodated 30 children selected for the second and third grades. It is the present plans to enroll children for the summer session who are elegible for grades three and four.

The model school proved one of the most interesting as well as one of the most popular extensions of the summer session curriculum. Miss Mary Fee, the supervisor and critic teacher of last year, will again direct this phase of the educational department.

Prof. Maurice A. Hess will give a review of the common branches, preparatory to the county examinations. There will be available the usual handwork and art for teachers as well as a liberal offering of regu-lar college courses under some of the most capable college instructors.

Ottawa, Kan., April 17—Keith Hayes, senior at McPherson college, took first prize and a $60 award tonight in the state Peace Oratorical contest sponsored by Ottawa university,

Harold Hanner of Southwestern college was awarded second place and a prize of $40. Entries of Bethel, Friends, and Sterling col-leges finished third, fourth and fifth respectively.    

Mr. Hayes' victory is convincing in that he was the unamious selec-tion of all the coaches for first place. The coaches of the colleges served as the judges, each coach being barred from voting for his own con-testant. With Coach Maurice A. Hess not judging all the others gave the McPherson entry first place.

In the last eight years McPherson has won first place on four occassions, have taken two second places, and one third and one fourth. In the same number of years the College peace orators in competition with 21 states has secured first place in the national contest, won by John Lehman, '31, and national champion is based upon he grading of the orations on thought and composition Mr. Hayes has entered his oration in the national contest.

Professor Blair was trying to arouse the reasoning powers of his School Ad class as to why we needed changes is present day life.

"Now my mother did not know anything about balanced diet or vitamines or the like, and we seemed to have developed pretty well," The class laughed in agreement, "Well, you may laugh,” contin-ued the professor, "but I'm the smallest one of the bunch.'’


from the Days’ Weekly


Rita S. Halle, who writes of American college life, while on a tour of educational institutions last, year noticed the number of apparently happy marriages among the alumni. Like the reporter she is, Miss Halle became curious and set out to find some facts.    

She found that while in the past 29 years there has been a rapid increase in the divorce rate—it having increased from one divorce in twelve marriages in 1900 to one divorce in every six marriages in 1929—the divorce rate among college alumni has remained fairly constant at one divorce in 75 marriages.

The divorce rate in Kansas in 1929 was one divorce in 5.1 marriages. Among the matches made on Kansas college campuses, there is only one divorce in each one hundred. Thus the records of Kansas colleges seem to justify their nickname of "match factories." At least the matches made in them have nineteen times better chance of proving successful than off-brand matches made elsewhere.

There is nothing magic about the college atmosphere. College education is training for a marriage, as it is training for life of which marriage is a part. The majority of successful marriages are among men and women with similar backgrounds, similar tastes and interests, and mutual friends. Thus it happens that marriages made in collages are usually happy ones.—Washburn Review.

We "Spec” things have not been so green since the Freshmen came last fall. Of course, we are referring to their caps.


During the school year of 1930-31 the students of McPherson college have been conducting a more conservative program in regards to the activities of the year. Such a program has been deemed necessary in order that students might better face the economic conditions that have hindered many of them throughout the term. Banquets have been abandoned that students might save a little money. Class dues have been lowered, in some cases, ’*that students might meet them. Such moves on the part of the student indicates their ability to meet conditions as they are.

Is it any wonder that most of us are nervous wrecks? For instance, a class on Friday had the following interruptions:

Class for 10 minutes. Knock at door. Professor goes to door, and goon out. Some could barely see the President outside. Conference. Professor returns. Miss X goes out. Class recitation several minutes. Door opens and Miss X returns to her place. Class picks up interest again. Knock at the door. Professor goes to door and opens it. Students can’t tell who is there. Professor comes back. Miss X goes out. Class barely gets started off again. Door opens, Miss X returns to her place. but she looks slightly worn out. Class tries to take up thread of thought again, but can't quite do it. Here one girl has to enter and leave the class three times in one hour, while the students are exhausted by curiosity. Is it any wonder we are nervous wrecks?

"Ooo just look at the pretty violets". . . Huh, those aren't violets . . . . those am dandelions, . , . They say that the average woman's clothing weighs only eight ounces , . . It’s a shame they have to wear such heavy shoes, . . .Some people only give thanks for their bread and butter. while others pay for theirs. . . . The greatest universal time-saver that we know of is love at first sight . , . .

The reigns of sovereign rulers throughout the world have met with depression along with business. The roster of sovereign rulers grows shorter with abduction of King Alphonso of Spain, and each year sees new trends toward democracy.

Today we have but twelve major monarchy heads left The most well known of this group is probably King George V of England. Others include Albert of Belgium, Victor Emmanuel of Italy, Gustaf of Sweden, Haskon of Norway, Christian of Denmark, Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, Carol of Romania, Nirohito of Japan. Boris of Bulgaria, Prajadhipok of Stam, and Ras Tafari of Abysinnia,

Down through the centuries sovereign rulers have not fared so easily. Ware and civil strife have brought about aductions of kings. Pomp and ceremony has been the dignity and the habitual custom of the kings court. In later years kings have sort of held the place of an ornamental decoration, to recieve guests of foreign countries and to be a factor in hero worship in the eyes of their subjects.

If you are a Senior and feeling snoozy you may hear the following: "Have you got your school yet " "Sure, that was easy.”

"How much, do you get?”

"I get $175, and I get to teach just what I wanted. The school buildings keen, and the school board was easy to talk to, an—" Then your best friend will punch you in the ribs and you'll try to answer the question that was fired at you by the teacher, who does not appreciate what a good time you were having.



As the flowers begin to bloom and the trees to green, one feels a new thrill of life surge through his veins as one revels in the beauty that surrounds him. The campus becomes a living, growing thing, its beauty more apparent than ever. The color of dainty spring dresses and the vigor of white shirtsleeves accentuate the pulsing beauty, of springtime. One cannot help but admire the beautiful campus, and one wishes that more could be done to increase its beauty—yet we neglect such a small thing that could so easily be done.

Why must the campus have cars lined up all about the driveway which circles in front of the Administration, building? They are not attractive. They give that part of the campus which should be most attractive the appearance of a business street or a fair ground. Why aren’t parking grounds furnished a short distance away and then everyone park at this definite place? Why can't the driveways be beautified by removing the wall of spare tires, trunks and rumble-seats which line it ? Other colleges do it! Why doesn’t McPherson?     — Enthusiastic Scribe.

One of the chief things which mark the cultured person is courtesy. It is a character trait which exemplifies the higher ideals of McPherson college.

However, courtesy, like the culture of which it is a part, cannot be donned and doffed according to circumstances. Once acquired, it ought to become permanent.

In most cases upon the sound of the closing whistle students suddenly lose interest in anything which the instructor or a fellow student may be saying or doing, close their text books with a bang, and assume a position on the edge of their chairs, as if their lives depended upon getting out of the room within ten seconds.

Why not do the courteous thing, and be a less percipitate in our escape from class rooms?.—D.R.

Some people have found the key to success but haven't located the key


Mon,. April 20—Dan West, director of the young peoples' work in the Church of the Brethren, spoke in chapel this morning. For illustrative materials he used an iron ring, two bottles of chemicals and two pieces of bailing wire.

"Some people’s thinking is like an Iron ring, small and bounded; quite narrow,” said Mr. West. "There are some advantages of this type or mind; it has poise; a narrow stream cuts deeply. Learning breaks the ring. Do not despise the ring."

"Others have the chemical reaction minds. When placed together the chemicals produce a gas which passes off into the air. This type of mind has freedom, it can go any where, but it does not have poise. It’s a poor trade to trade poise for freedom."

Mon., April 20—At a meeting of the W, A. A. tonight it was decided to have the installation services for the officers of the organization for 1931-32 at the next regular meeting. which will be Monday night. May 4.


When you are standing on the side-lines watching a track meet, in which the Bulldogs are entered and during the 440 yard dash and the mile relay you will be certain to notice a McPherson contestant who at the start of the race is behind all his competi-tors. For nearly three-fourths of the way around the track he will be last man. And then on the last curve he takes the lead by passing his man on the curve and wins the race by at least ten yards. The winner is certain to be McPherson's new find, a Tennessee lad by the name of McGill.

In looking over the Kansas conference track and field records in the past, those that are still standing, one finds that McPherson holds two records that have not as yet been bettered. The Records as they now stand are;

Mile — Hoyfard, Baker. 4:25.2, made in 1927.

4 40—Lidikay, Baker, 48.3. made in 1925.

100—Puckett, McPherson, :10.1, made in 1928

High Hurdles — Walker, Baker,

: 15.4. made in 1930.

800—Hoisington, Wesleyan. 1:58.-5. made in 1928.

220—Puckett, McPherson, :22.4, made in 1928.

Two Mile—Wharton, Baker. 10.9, made in 1928

Low Hurdles—Walker, Baker. :25, made in 1930,

Mile Relay.....Baker. 32.25.5, made

In 1926.

Pole Vault—Wolgast, Ottawa, 11 feet 10 inches made in 1930.

High Jump—Barnes, Bethany, 6 feet, 1/2 inch, made in 1926.

Shot—Lange, Baker. 45 feet, made in 1930.

Discus- Lange, Baker. 133 feet 2 inches, made in 1930.

Broad Jump—-Wolgast, Ottawa, 22 foot, 7 2/3 inches, made in 1927.

Javelin—Young, Baker, 170 feet,

7 Inches, made in 1928.

Have you stopped to think why some men are great

While other men just stay small? The big Men think big, and then they do big-"

It's just how you think, that's all. If you think Success. you'll have suc-


Provided you also do.

And follow your thoughts with the kind of work

That is going to make it true.

But you can't get big by thinking small.

And you can only go as far    

As your constant thoughts and daily deeds

For just as you think—you are.

For the men who rise in the things that count.

Have an inspiration true And keep their thoughts on the goal ahead—    

Then work with that end in view.

So watch your thoughts and watch then fit

Whatever you’d like to see For as you think you are bound to live.

So whatever you think you'll be.



Tomorrow afternoon the McPherson tracksters and racket yielders will pit their strength against the teams from Bethel college. Newton, on the McPherson field.

Yesterday McPherson was scheduled to have a track and field and tennis meet with Bethany college, but due to the inclement weather the meet was called off. It is not known yet if the dual meet is to be held or not, but if it is held it will probably be only the tennis matches.

Next Tuesday Coach Melvin J. Binford will take his track and tennis teams to St. Mary’s for a dual meet with the frish. Last year the Bulldogs defeated St. Mary's on the McPherson field. Just who will make this trip is not known yet.

Give Program In Oklahoma City Tonight—Tomorrow At Guthrie

Last Friday night the McPherson college male quartet started on a week's tour thru southern Kansas. Shank. Harry Zinn. Charles Austin, and into Oklahoma.

Those making the trip are Harvey Lawrence Lehman, the director, Mrs. Anna C. Tate, and Miss Lucile Crabb. reader. The quartet, accompanied by the Ladies' quartet of the College, gave the lyceum number at Darlow, Kan., last Friday night before a large Audience.

Sunday they gave a program at Thomas, Monday at Cordell, and yesterday at Guthrie, and tonight at Oklahoma City, Tomorrow night they will return to Guthrie, and then Friday night the last program will be given at Bartlesville.


ORCHESTRA GIVES PROGRAM Fri., April 17—Dr. V. F. Schwalm led the devotionals n student convocation this morning. The College orchestra, under the direction of Miss Margaret Shelley, played three numbers, after which the student body was dismissed.

There are meters of accent, There are meters of tone; But the beat of all meters, Is to meet her alone.

Lady: Can you give me a room and bath?

Clerk: I can give you a room, madam. but you will have to take your own bath.

It takes a little courage And a little self control And some grim determination If you want to reach the goal,

It takes a deal of striving

With a firm and stern set chin, No matter what the battle. If you're really out to win.

There's no easy path to glory There's no easy road to fame; Life, however we may view it,

Is no simple parlor game:

But its prizes call for fighting,

For endurance and for grit.

With a rugged disposition.

And a "don't-know-where-to-quit"

You must take a blow or give one.

You must risk and you must live. And expect that in the struggle You will suffer from a bruise,

But you mustn't wince or falter If a fight you once begin.

Be a man and face the battle— That’s the only way to win.
