Missionary From Africa Makes Suggestion For Student Youth—Is Not Easy To Follow


People Of Africa Bow Down To Idols In Hunger For God—Hays Albert B. Helser

Fri,. Oct. 3—“Don't be luke warm; either work hard for Jenna Christ or for the Devil. " was the suggestion made by Albert D. Helser of Nigeria, Africa, in chapel this morning.

not an easy task to follow c to Jesus, but strength and power have been promised to as

Jesus does not force his way Into our hearts, but He stands at the door and knocks, The young people of to-day are going to be active In the church or kick It overboard.

If a man will work hard at tennis or basket-ball he should work Just as hard for Jesus Christ To follow Christ we must pat down race prejudice; wo arc one blond; all races are one In Christ Jesus. There are both blank and white keys on the piano. To produce a beautiful melody both the black and white keys are used. If we played both black and white keys around the world it would make a most beautiful melody. Being willing to do a thing doesn't get it dune, We must put forth some effort In accomplish any thing worthwhile. We have knowledge but we should pray for the will to use this knowledge wisely, Gandhi wants his students to take the Bible first and to follow it.

The people of Africa bow down to Idols In hunger far God and nut In blindness. We are a more enlight-ened people hut often wo turn our backs upon light. Men will give their lives for money, hut they hesi-tate to give their lives for Christ. It is not necessary to go to same dis-tant and to give our lives In service; wo can serve where ever we are.

The plea which Mr. Helser made was that wo give ourselves Whole-heartedly and unreservedly to the will of the Master.

The poor absent-minded collage professor of McPherson how he will weep. He does not realize that ho has no chance to survive as a result of statistics, compiled over a period dren from parents of 15 years. He is dying, a gloomy future is before him, he may become extinct, a sorta lost tribe If figures don't He. His path lies toward extermination and his footfall is heavy.

This is the situation:

Statistics covering the last 13 years show that the number of children per family averaged. VC with a total number of 96 Instructors and a total of 72 children.     has reason to weep

Following the law of averages as to the present age of teachers and the possibilities for additional chil

ence tells us that    not

more than 10 additional children.

Counting only the married instruc-tors the statistics show a total of 43 with a total number of 72 children, giving no average of 1. 68 to the ramily. Students of Eugenics say that it requires a total of three children per family in order to perpetuate a race, in this rate the poor professor

Fri., Oct. 3—Rev. A. D. Helser. missionary to Africa now on fur-lough, addressed the World Service Group and other Interested students at 3: 30 o'clock this afternoon.

Then, in his witty. interesting and dramatic manner, Reverend Helser told of his experi-

FOOTBALL, WOCKY Twas killing and the dusty boys Did jab and Jibber on the grid All gory were the football men

   And that fullback, the Kid.

He toot the football In his hand

Miss Myrtle Ainsworth and her brother Clarence took dinner at the dining hall Sunday.

‘ Summer is swooning, and fall Is resuming its old trick of painting the dying face of a living world with hues of God's own tint. The clinging Ivy with, crimson leaves is struggling with a last long supremacy of campus walls. The evergreens are delighting in their everlasting freshness and life is settling down for the winter.

There is a growing reluctance to espouse the cause of physical labor, and a mounting determination on the part of young men to live the life of the lily of the field as far as physical labor for daily bread is concerned, In some lights this may bo accepted as a healthy sign of Increased intellectuality, the ascendency of mind over muscle; In other respects this betokens a strong disinclination to learn the fundamentals—to begin at the bottom of the ladder and become acquainted with the physical elements on which most Industry is founded.

The construction superintendent of a big dam In California, advertising for help, found 300 potential time-keepers on band the next morning, but not a soul who showed any friendly spirit toward the pick and shovel. But It was pick-and-shovel men who would build the dam; the timekeepers would be only Incidentals to the main task of getting the earth In shape to receive the dam.

It would be overly pessimistic to say that the world is rilling up with timekeepers and sloughing off the pick-and-shovel boys. That is not true, for there la more work being done today than ever before. But the timekeeper's frame of mind is more prevalent than ever. The colleges are turn-

Yeh, the student life is strenuous, but I was talking with a lady the other day who said her husband had been away from home seven nights running. What do you think of that for exercise?

Jim and Polly were studying In the library when someone approached to see If they were using the desired book.

Marvin Hill spent the end of the week at his home northeast of Galva.


In branding the summer and fall depression as one brought about by conditions of overproduction and unemployment would be limiting one's viewpoint to a small scope with limited boundaries. Many conditions and situations prevailed during the last year to beckon hard times and encourage panic.

The cause of many depressions in largely duo to Inclement economic conditions plus the psychological effect it has upon the people. People begin to think hard times then practice the same, They refuse to buy the commodities necessary for comfortable maintenance and as a result there la unemployment. Production over-shadows the demand, prices are lowered. and the buying power of the public becomes greater.

The stock market crashes on Wall Street seem to be due to an attempt to keep prices high and to divert a general failure of financial Institutions.

In the last three years the gold reserve of the United States has been lowered and a large percentage of this decrease in our treasury has gone into the coffers of France. France at the present time is experiencing in economic brightness unexcelled since before the war In 1914. Its gold reserve is larger than It has ever been and is the largest in Europe.

Conditions are now changing, the depression has ran Its course, the crisis has passed and the mid-winter holds better promise than the past summer and fall. ' The summer drought played a greater part la lowering the wheat surplus than did the farm hoard and with price* lowered and production gaining a stable condition future crashes on Wall Street. will become fewer and the nation will regain the lost confidence In Itself It lost last summer.

OH Wells Or Electricity Uncontrolled Are Samples Of Destruction Says Miss McGaffey

Oct. 1—Self restraint was the subject which Miss Edith McGaffey dis-cussed in chapel this morning. Proper self restraint is rewarded In Joy and happiness, but lack of restraint leads in destruction. Oil wells or electricity uncontrolled are examples of destruction.

Our speech and actions may become cruel and unsocial if not restrained. We should take care and not have people say "Oh that is Just his way", Coleridge though a great poet, lacked self restraint and suffer-, ed because of It. The great apostle of old said, “I have fought a good fight. I have kept the faith, I have finished the course.

Outstanding Fur The McPHerson Bulldogs Robinson Stars For The Coyotes

Frl.. Oct. 3—The McPherson college Bulldogs received the worst de-Teat la the history of their 14 years of football from the Kansas Wesleyan Coyotes tonight on the home field. 46 to 0. Tonight's same brought back the memories of the conflict with Bethany college in 1927 when the Bulldogs were defeated 3 9 to 0.

The Mack men were outweighed by nearly 16 pounds to the man and It was In the first quarter and part of the second quarter that the Bulldogs displayed their best football of the lesson but filled to make a first down. Pitted against a line that worked a Perfect machine In Its charging, the Bulldogs were battered to pieces. Four of the regulars were out of the game, although Blaine Miller, halfback, and Hochstrasser. end. did see a few minutes of action, their Injuries preventing them re maining any length of time,

Buckland, another halfback and Overholzer. fullback, shared honors with Robinson In piling up the big K-Wesleyan score. For McPherson, Barngrover's defensive playing was outstanding. Cox, although light, displayed some fast work but was unable to make substantial gains because of poor defense.

One Of Strongest Teams In Oklahoma—Have An Exceptionally Fast Team ThU Year


Esperience In Last Two Games May Prove An Advantage To The McPhers-on Bulldogs

When the Bulldogs journey to Enid, Okla., this week end they will face a very strong football team, which has been defeating the best, Phillips U. has five lettermen back this year and these five men will con-stitute the backbone around which the Haymakers will place the respon-sibility of their play. They seem to have an exceptionally fast team this year which was made evident by the way they defeated the Swedes to the score of 25-0,

With the experience of two games as past history the Bulldogs will endeavor lo check the mighty Haymakers this coming Friday. The Binford men have been going through some strenuous practice these last few nights and should be in good shape for Hid buttle.

Phillips boasts a fast driving buck who played with the Haymakers last season and seems to be an outstanding player on their team. Although they have been doing some excellent playing there might be a different story to tell after Friday night. The game will be played under flood lights and the Bulldogs should be used to that sort of play after having played two games at night.

The probable line-up:

Wed., Oct. 1—Winning the dis-tinction of being the most valuable man on the Bulldog team In their first game of the season and the choice of any pair of shoes In a local shoe store. Boots-Bootery, Orville Countryman was given the honor. Countryman, a husky right guard, whose playing was outstanding in the Kearney game was selected by his team mates and coach as the player who displaced the greatest amount of sportsmanship. Individual playing and team work. Countryman, who has two more years of football ahead of him, made his football debut In 1927 when he played his first year on the Bulldog squad.

Announced By Holstein-Friesian As-sociation Of America

The McPHerson col lege farm, whose herd of purebred Hoistein dairy cattle is well known In McPherson, has recently chosen a trade name to identify Its herd, according to an announcement by the Hoistein-Fries-ian Association of America which registered the name for the breeder. The name chosen as a part of the ; name of each Individual animal Id the herd is "McColfa" All registered Hoisteins have a name and number, the name usually indicating the animal blood lines.

There Is one automobile In the United States for every four and half persons.

We hope that the men out of the game on account of Injuries will be back in the fray Friday night with Phillips university at Enid, Okla. Those men were missed in the Kan-sas Wesleyan game and even though they were substituted toward the end of the game, their Injuries Would not permit them to remain.

We haven’t much dope on Phillips except that they heal Bethany 25-0 last Friday afternoon.

Win or lose, let us always back the Bulldogs to the limit.

With so many of the Bulldogs on the bench because of Injuries this disadvantage should be made up by the student body in their support at the game. The team was weakened with their absence and the students should strengthen it by exerting continuously their pep at the games A word of, encouragement when need-ed, Is worth ten rahs for a triumph.
