Kearney Was Penalized 90 Yards—

Copland, Wichita Deacon, Umpire —Kahler, Southwestern, Referee


Fri., Sept. - 26—On an Illuminateo field that produced a thrilling spectacle for an estimated crowd of over 2, 500 people, the Bulldogs gave way to a splendid aerial attack and a more weighty line of the Kearney Teachers, Nebraska, 33-0, Although the Bulldogs showed considerable speed at times. they were unable to check the tricky passed and line plunges of the Teachers. At times the Mack men showed good defense but then again they would weaken and the Teachers would break through for substantial gains. McPherson could not get their scoring machine to function properly and made several fumbles that were costly.

McPherson was the first to receive the ball and Miller carried It. B. Miller made a beautiful punt and Kearney punted and McPherson lost several by scrimmage and Miller again punted. Again the Instructors came hack with a nice pass and a long end run for a big gain. Kearney was penalized and again punted out of the danger zone. McPherson was working hard to get through the lino but their efforts seemed futile against the heavy Nebraska line. After a few plunges

Wed., Sept. 24. —“It takes cour-age for a man to say, I'm glad I'm alive and have a chance to live, ' slated M. R. Zigler, Home Mission Secretary or the Church of the Breth-ren, Elgin, Illinois, in his chapel; addresses this morning. '‘Keep your eye on the end of life and start now' to make the world Christian",

Mr. Zigler spoke of peace. In fulfillment of a promise made to four men of Yale, who had courage to die, because It seemed to be the will of the universe. It is only when we loose courage that we wish for death.

We gain more from our mothers because they pay a bigger price Real courage Is shown today by the man who don nut smoke, or who does not wear when among men who do swear. The student who prepares for examinations by diligent daily work is also demonstrating Courage.

Over half the people In America belong to no church. America is in like balance between paganism and Christianity. Do we have the cour-age Lo try lo make the world christ-tan? The minister needs support the same as an atheltic: team.

The challenge Mr. Zigler gave was lo. "Start now to prepare for a life of service and win the world for Christ. ”

the high cost of Education

That It costs money to go to school for four years every McPherson student and every other student in the country will vouch that It Is true. Most anything one attempts to do he has to "pay for It", The conflict usually does not come from the fact that we are to pay for It as It does from the fact that are we able to pay for It. Education is not the cheapest thing ana ran purchase In dollars and cents alone.

In a student survey conducted by The Spectator during the school year of 1929-30 to determine Just how much a student at McPherson spends during one year, among both the men and women, It was found that for the women the average for one year was $546. 71 and for the men it was $623. 70. However, this is merely the average, for In the survey some paid larger amounts while others less. At this rate It would cost a woman on the average, around $2, 186. 84 to go through McPherson college in four years and the men would require $2, 494. 80.

During the college year of 1927-28. a half billion dollars flowed into the tills of colleges and universities in the United States according to the reports of 1, 071 Institutions reporting to the United States office of Education,

One fourth of this amount oust from the tuition and fees of undergraduate and graduate students; 23 per cent was appropriated by state and city governments; 13 per cent was given through private benefactions; 12 per cent was income from endowments; 10 per cent was obtained from other sources. Three and four tenths per cent was contributed by the United States government.


The American hoy normally proceeds by stages which are adapted to the capacities of the mediocre, and In very few schools can his own efforts do much to accelerate his progress. No automatic Incentive is applied to the able boy to stretch himself; as he con do his work in half the time that Is alloted to It, and human nature being what It Is, he floes very easily what is necessary and his brain gets flabby for lack of exercise.

Much the same is true of many of the universities and colleges. The curriculum Is adapted to the capacities of the average. Again and again It has been heard from undergraduates themselves some such comment as. "Of course, I can get by. bitting on two cylinders instead of six. " And one undergraduate of a famous eastern university put much of the matter la a nutshell when he said;

"We think we have democracy in education; we feel vaguely that to separate Ih* able from the mediocre is In some undefined way undemocratic. We say we aim to equality of opportunity, and what we secure is equality Of achievement. "

If that is true—-and we believe it is far too true—It Implies a stagger-ing wastage of brain power which even an great a country cannot permanently afford.


One of the greatest questions concerning students today Is why so many of them fall to make good. Repeatedly one reads where some school or university has sent home, yes, even hundreds of them who have failed to make a passing grade at the end of the first semester. Yet these young men and women were graduates of high schools, and only six short months previously, they had received their diplomas before applauding parents and friends.

It is a and story. Out of every five men who matriculated in a certain engineering school, at least four. In all probability, turned out to he relative failures. Of every three men who enter college and with high hopes start to prepare themselves for this career, two never finish. In exact terms, only 37 1/2 per cent ever leave with a diploma.

The Society for the Promotion of Engineering Education, aided by a grant of funds from the Carnegie corporation, started some years ago to gather the materials for an exhaustive Inqniry Into the conditions In that field, Professor H. P. Hammond, who served a* assistant director of the investigation, reported ns follows:

‘Of ouch 100 entering students, but sixt-two successfully complete the first two years. The others drop out of college for one reason or another; the predominant reason being scholastic failure".

Professor Hammond held that engineering education was costing the people of this country In the neighborhood of $30, 000, 000 a year, and over and above this ft was costing the efforts of a great body or conscientious teachers and college authorities. Even more Important was the fact that It was costing a fraction of the lives of some 55, 000 or 60, 00O young men a year, and it would seem, he bold, "that we should make every effort to have our work done for those who are to profit by It In reasonable measure. To me it seems high time that we give much more attention to the important question of the rational selection of student per-sonnel. ”

What is true in engineering education is also true of the much wider scope of college education taken as ft whole, The money and lives wasted runs up into staggering figures.

No matter what effective steps have been taken In public or private institutions to right this wrong, all have met with determined opposition from an advene public opinion. Many have been able to make no head-way whatever against the active hospitality of their constituents. Whereas, as in the United States, higher education is a part of the social system efforts can do little with so general a condition. The size of our distressing army of failures Is, however, sufficient testimony that something here is fundamentally wrong and that we are confronted with a social problem which not the college alone but only a more enlightened public opinion can solve.

Many a wife has helped her husband to the top of the ladder. And. then left him there while she decided to have that picture somewhere else.

One of the prettiest sights imaginable would be that of a mother playing toy golf while her daughter is washing the dishes.
