Explains the Necessity for a Gold or Silver Standard

Mon,. Nov. 16-" Money" was the subject of an interesting chapel speeks this morning by Prof. E. H. Bohling. In showing the importance of money. Prof. Bohling stated that most good things submit to the mon-ey appraisal, and that the standard by which nearly all things are judged is money.

He discussed the development of the use of money, telling how barter was the first form of trade before a standardized form of money came

into use. Some of the things used for money more or less commonly were animal skins, slaves, oxen, orna-


Prof. Bohling explained the neces-sity for having gold and silver as a monestry standard. He said that some of the things needed for such a standard are desirability, portabillity, uniformity, divisability, lack of

oversupply or scarcity, and stability. Gold most nearly meets these re-quirements, and therefore is perhaps the most desirable of money standards.

McPherson 14. Ottawa 6

Wiggins and Carpenter Make Touch-down for McPherson

Ottawa, Nov. 11—The McPherson college Bulldogs won their first conference football game of the season here this afternoon from the Ottawa Braves by a score of 14 to 6. The Bulldogs after getting a slow start, showed a complete reversal of form and shoved across two touchdowns in the last periods after Ottawa had scored in the first quarter.

The game was played on

a field covered with water and mud. Bin-ford or McPherson suffered a broken nose on the second play of the game, but played a good game in spite of this handicap. Ottawa scored in the first quarter after two long passes had put the ball in scoring position. Smith went over for the counter, but Elder missed the try for point.

Ottawa's heavy team could not gain consistently against the Bulldog forward wall, and resorted to many passes. Knapper threw some excellent passes, but many of them were grounded and a few were intercepted,

In the third quarter McPherson got the ball on the dry side of the field and worked down on that side, keeping the ball in the dry as much as possible. With E. Anderson going through the center of the line and Carpenter going off tackle the ball was soon placed on the nine yard line with firm and goal to go. On the next play McPherson drew a five

yard penalty. A few stabs at the

line gained a little, then on the fourth down a pass from Carpenter to Wiggins was good for a touchdown. Wiggins’s kick was good, placing the Bulldogs in the lead.

In the fourth quarter McPherson recovered an Ottawa fumble which put the Bulldogs into scoring position. On the first play Carpenter carried the ball off tackle for the

Tbit Edition Dedicated to the Liberal Arts College

The November edition of the McPherson college Bulletin was issued last week. This number of the bulletin has been designated as a special Liberal Arts College number. Following the plan of the National Liberal Arts College Broadcast' which took place on Saturday, November 14. The bulletin contains articles Intended to set forth the aims, ideals, and present status of the American Liberal Arts College, and of our own in particular. The spirit and atmosphere of the college. Its contribution to society and to the community, and the efficiency of its faculty and curriculum are stressed in these articles.

One article of special interest was written by Prof. R. E. Mohler. It is entitled "The Spirit and Atmosphere of McPherson College in 1913    In

it he points out the fact that life was much simpler in 1913 than it is today, as there were fewer things outside of school to occupy our time In 1913 only one member of the college family owned a car, but at present all of the faculty and more than half of the students have access to a car. Few extra-curricular activi-ties could be found, there being no football or intercollegiate debate. Our present strong departments of athletics, music, forensics, and dramatics show what an improvement has been made along this line

One of the most noticeable factors in the growth of the college since 1913 ban been the raising of the academic standard. In 1913 the atmosphere was strongly high school, although the students were considerably older than the average high school student of today. Three fourths of all students were enrolled in the Academy, and the entire college, enrollment was forty-seven.

Professor Mohler says that religion and the abiding realities of life have always round a large place in McPherson college. It was true in 1913 and it is true today.

A comparative financial statement of McPherson college for the fiscal year ending June 15, 1931, was issued as a supplement, to the Bulletin.

Rev. H. F. Richards of College Church is Chairman


Sun., Nov. 15- It has been an-nounced that the members of the Junior-Senior Men's and Women's Sunday School classes of the Church of the Brethren will not have their party this week. The affair had been planned for Friday evening at the home of Mrs. Y. A Vaniman. It has been postponed indefinitely, and fur-ther plans for the date of this party will be announced later.

Afterward are Treated to a Moving Picture


Wed,. Nov. 18- The annual Quad-rangle sale was scheduled to take place this morning during the chapel period. The event is always one of interest to the students, and compe-tition is keen between classes in the race to see who can first go over one hundred percent in orders for the yearbook.

Rev. Oliver H. Austin Speaks on "Character Building"

Fri., Nov. 13- In chapel this morning President Schwalm intro-duced Mr. and Mrs Oliver H. Austin, both alumni of McPherson college, who are family representatives working out in the field as evange-lists. Rev. Mr. Austin talked to the  students on "Character Building".

He said that character building is the most important building industry in the world. Then he listed four ways in which a person can more effectively build character.

First, life is a builder and to build a life a friend is necessary. One should build upon friendship and not on money, and Jesus Christ is the best friend to choose.

Second, we need a cause. To be successful one must work for some goal, as all great people have done. One should choose the Kingdom of God as his cause.

Third, a book should be chosen, and the Bible is the book to select. And last, a brotherhood of people with like spirit and aspirations should be chosen. This need is best filled by the Church.

In conclusion the speaker said that it doesn't matter how long you live, but how well you live. Jesus Christ was given as an example of what can be accomplished in a short life. Mrs. Austin also was introduced and gave a few words of greeting to the students.

Following those talks the college women's quartet, composed of Helen Holloway, Vera Flora, Ethel Sherfy, and Lois Edwards sang "Rose of

My Heart" and "Rock of Ages".



Six Teams Will Enter Southwestern Pre-Season Tournament

Fri., Nov, 13 -Lillian Carlson, Mildred Doyle, Hope Nickel, and, Alice Ruchlen were selected to form the women's debate team as a result of th tryouts held this afternoon to the college chapel. Alternates for the team are Ruth Hobart and Milli-cent Nyquist.

Only six women entered the try- outs, several having dropped out of the competition before this after-noon.

Coach Maurice A. Hess stated that the voting was very close, in several cases varying, but one point between  the different candidates. Judges were Miss Delia Lehman, Mrs. J. D. Bright, Prof. J. H. Fries, Prof. E. R.,

Bohling, and Prof. Maurice A. Hess

Of the four debaters making the first team, Miss Doyle and Miss Carl-son have had one year each of exper-ience during their succesful season last year, and both Miss Nickel and Miss Raehlen have had considerable experience debating in high school.

Professor Hess plans to take six teams to the annual pre-season de-bate tournament to be held at South-western college on December 4 and 5. The men's second team will enter the junior college division of the tournament, while the varsity men's and women's teams will enter events respectively for men's and women's teams from four year colleges. Con-testants will be paired, and each team thus formed will be required to debate both sides of the question in the course of the tournament.

The Southwestern tournament this

year promises to be one of the largest in years, although last year 132 teams from forty-four colleges of five different states took part.

The question for debate this year is a discussion of capitalism, the statement being "Resolved: that Congress shall chart legislation providing for the centralized control of industry. ”

There are times when it is much better to ask questions than to pretend that you know all about it.

Mildred Doyle & Lillian Carlson Give Peace Addresses


Success consists in finding the shortest line between two points— where you are and where you want to be.

The following article was laid on the editor's desk by an unknown party, designating himself as "a student interested in Student Government";

"Of what use is our Student Council? The classes and organizations elect representatives to this governing body to represent the students. So far so good. The Student Council may vote unanimously on what the students want, but it is not passed unless the faculty passes on the Student Council's decision. So consequently we are not being governed by the Student Council, but by what the faculty thinks is right or wrong. Why have a Student Council? They are not doing us any good. We might as well disband them, and let them spend that time at something more worth while. We are being governed by the faculty and not by the Student Council, as we are made to believe. If the Student Council is not going to govern the student body, why have them?

Why not change some constitutions so the students can have a voice in the government? Eh, what! "

While it is agreed that part of the above may be just criticism, the writer should reconsider certain of his statements. The Student Council is doing us some good. This organization actually has almost complete control over most of the student activities. It takes responsibility for financing and publishing the two student publications, the Spectator and the Quadrangle; It sponsors the majority of the social events on the campus, including several all-school picnics and parties during the year; it brings to students a number of good programs of entertainment through the yenr, either at a nominal cost to the student or at free admission, through the students' incidental fees, thus having control over the administration of a considerable part of the money paid in by each student; it sponsors plays and musical programs put on by the various dramatic and musical organizations; it sponsors and finances the forensic activities of the year, including the state debate tournament; it provides and keeps in repair the tennis courts for the use of students; and it gives recognition to students who have rendered service to the school, in the form of medals and trophies. All of these are things for the benefit of students which could not well be done by any other organization on the campus. It would be well to consider these things before suggesting that the Student Council be disbanded.

Certainly a closer cooperation is needed between Student Council and faculty, and perhaps some method can be devised whereby the students can have a stronger voice in matters which concern students primarily. Meanwhile let us not talk of disbanding the Student Council, an action which would defeat its own end in that after that step students would be entirely without means of having any voice in the control of school activities.

Nothing recedes like success.— Walter Winchell.

Even if you have a good excuse for giving up, remember that all the rewards go to those who stick till they get what they are after.

Faithe Ketterman and Ellen Steinberg spent the week-end at Lorraine, in the home of Miss Steinberg.

Archie Blickenstaff, ’29, and Ray Nonken, '30, visited on the campus Saturday. They were on the way to the Kansas State Nebraska U. game at Manhattan.

Wed., Nov. 11—An Armistice Chapel Service, starting at 10: 45 o'clock this morning, was held in the college chapel. After the song of ‘‘America'' a prayer was given in unison; Dr. J. D. Bright acted as leader of the morning program. The McPherson college peace Caravanners, Miss Lillian Carlson and Miss Mildred Doyle, also gave talks.

After the reading of the high points of the Peace Pact Paris and Preamble of the Treaty, a two-min-ute period of silence was observed with bowed heads. Miss Mattie Shay then played a violin solo, “The Old Refrain” by Fritz Kriesler.

The "peace” talks were given by Lillian Carlson and Mildred Doyle, who have been acting as representatives from McPherson College this past, summer in peace caravan work. They presented their viewpoints on War and Peace, with Miss Carlson speaking first. She pointed out that there are two modern ways of settling disputes: first, through the

League of Nations; and second, through the World Court. She also stated that there are several things the United States can do to help promote the Peace issue. From among many things, she should especially put on a program of education against war, consider other nations as all belonging to a human family.

Miss Doyle, in her talk on Disarmament, said that the Gutted States has power to be a great influence in forwarding peace and she can do it in one way especially by carrying out the Kellog Peace Pact, Miss Doyle also remarked that modern armaments no longer insure security. A disarmament conference is to be held in the near future at Geneva, Switzerland, and the citizens of the United States have the privilege and duty of revealing their desires for peace by writing to President Hoover and signing Peace petitions which will be sent to the United States Peace representatives.

Miss Carlson and Miss Doyle challenged the college people and citizens of the United States to take advantage of their opportunity at once before it becomes too late.

The attention of the nation is being called to the annual Roll Call of the American Red Cross, which was launched this year on Armistice Day and is to continue until Thanksgiving. The membership drive this year signalizes the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of that organization, and a special effort. Is being put forth to gain additional members for the coming year.

The Red Cross has done a stupendous amount of work for the welfare of mankind since its beginning fifty years ago, with the first society of fifty members formed under the leadership of Clara Barton. The organization has grown until it was able to feed, clothe, and give relief to more than 2, 750, 000 people last year in the drouthstricken areas of the Northwest. Today the Junior Red Cross organization, including members of the lower school ages, alone comprises more than 7, 000, 000 members. The drouth relief project undertaken by the Red Cross last year ranks as a major effort of its career. Drouth relief was given to people scattered through twenty-three states. However; this was not tho only work, for the organization also gave aid in the cases of other disasters in thirty-eight states, involving fifty-two separate calamities. The great service rendered by the Red Cross in alleviating pain and poverty during the World War is another of its monumental accomplishments,

There is also the international side of the Red Cross movement, which began its development at the close of the World War with the creation of the League or Red Cross Societies, formed under American leadership. Through this League there has developed a growing international relationship in the Red Cross field.

To an organization which has performed such a vast amount of social service the people of America owe a debt of gratitude, and this can best be paid by supporting and actively participating in the work of the Red Cross,

Since we have started talking about closing hours for men, the women on the campus would like to see them punished by another restriction. We suppose you have noticed the great difference between the dress of the men and the women on the campus. Of course styles for the two seres have always been different, but there is neatness to consider.

Is it not fair for a man to run around the Hill looking like, a hitch hiker who has not been hitched for the last one hundred miles? What if the women wore dirty corduroy skirts of various hues from a smoky white to bright purple? A great protest would arise, sex appeal would go down to zero, and the men would yell quits. Of course women like to dress well, but their standard is too high for the men. How about an organization of women advocating wool hose, flatboat shoes, gingham dresses, and stocking caps with a red ribbon at the peak? Then at least the women would be on a level with the men in styles.

The cure—there is none; at least as far as the men are concerned. But the women? Don't worry, they notice neatness when they see it. Of course the women don't want the men to dress like an advertisement for a clothing company, but they do like to see corduroys go to the laundry at least once a semester. —University Daily Kansan.

What tempts his taste, and eat his fill

The College Christian Endeavor Society of the Church of the Brethren, of which Lilburn Gottman is president, will sponsor a party in the parlors of the church next Saturday night, November 31.


Advocate Disarmament and

Adherence to Paris Peace Pact

Thurs,, Nov. 12—The local Y. M. C. A., with Kenneth Bitikofer as acting chairman, has been sponsor-ing movement to get signers to Peace petitions to be sent to President Hoover. So far a largo number of students and faculty members have signed, and others are being given an opportunity to do this be-fore the lists are sent in.

The statement of the petitions indorses the Pact of Paris, pledging our government and fifty-eight, others to renounce war as an instrument of International policy and seek solution of all controversies by peaceful means only. It also voices the belief that the present world economic de-pression makes an immediate cut in arms expenditures imperative to lessen the burdens of taxation and contribute to the stability of the world.

It is suggested that the United States representatives to the ap-proaching World Disarmament Conference at Geneva advocate the following points:

1.    Unceasing emphasis an the moral obligations of the Peace Pact.

2.    Actual reductions of all armaments on land, sea, and air.

3.    Drastic redactions and limitations of naval expenditures.

4.    Immediate abolition by all governments of preparations and appropriations for use of poison gas and disease germs in warfare.

6. Establishment of a Permanent Disarmament Commission to follow the execution of the disarmament agreements.

In addition the petitions advocate the adherence of the United States to the World Court before the Disarmament Conference opens as an expression of the attitude of the United States toward world cooperation.

Mrs. J. D. Bright, gave a delightful and inspirational talk on “The Perfect Hostess.’ She said that in order to be a successful hostess, one should have a wide background of reading. All college courses form this background, and therefore the student should look to them with more interest.

The four essentials which Mrs. Bright gave for a charming woman are these: she must have a broad and sincere interest in people, a quick and ready discernment in her love for people, a happy Outlook on life, and she must have a large amount of self-forgetfulness.



1. "I don't agree with you at all, ” Insist upon starting: a discussion, when the other fellow was only saying something to make conversation.

2. “I don't like your friend. " Offer unsolicited critical comment about a man's friends or some member of his family. His wife or child will do.

3.    "Anybody could do that, " Minimize other pouple’s accomplish-ments, especially those they are proud of.

4. "I know better, " Offer author -itative information on every topic that comes up in a bunch of folks trying to have a good time. The nearer right you are, the surer you are to be disliked.

5. "I’ll tell you exactly where you failed. " Analyze your friends' mistakes and reverses when they are trying to forget them.

4.    "As I was saying. ” Insist on dragging in your favorite topic among people interested in something else. If you can give it on air of being a subject that the group are too stupid or too ignorant to follow, so much the better.

7. "I thought you were going to —" Remind people of promises they made impulsively, or out of good-fellowship, but which you know they cannot keep.

8.    "Let me show you how. " Insist on holding the center of the stage.

9. "I used to think so a while back. " Throw a wet blanket on other people's enthusiasms. if you con make it appear that their taste is antiquated, you will emerge superior to them, and they will love you all the more.

10. "That is nothing but prejudice, '' The surest way to succeed with this line os to pick on people's religious or patriotic sentiments. -M. E. Ravage, in The American.

She——"I consider, John, that sheep are the stupidest creatures living. "

He (absent-mindedly)—"Yes. my lamb. "

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. —Tennyson.

ing of the Y. M. C. A.

Tues., Nov. 17—Dean F. A. Rep-logle spoke in Y. M. C. A. meeting this morning on the subject of "Social Ease and raise. ” He stated that one can see in young people the pictures of their early training, and that the early years of a person’s life are very important in the development of social poise. Often deficiencies in such early training must be overcome by a great deal of self-discipline later.

Dean Replogle mentioned various kinds of crises which may reveal the persons who have the true social

ease which is most desirable..

At the close of the talk a number of the men present mentioned ways in which social poise may be maintained and developed under certain circumstances.
