Varied Program Is Given by Both Students and Faculty Members—Football Game Is Feature

Thurs., Nov. 26—The McPherson

College Bulldogs fought their ancient rivals, the Bethany Swedes, to a scoreless tie here this afternoon in the eleventh annual Thanksgiving classic between the two schools. The game was played on a field west of town formerly used as an airport, because of the poor condition of the Athletic Park gridiron. A crowd estimated at nearly one thousand spectators witnessed the game in spite of the chilly weather and the snow which fell during the entire game.

Neither team was able to gain consistently against the other. Passing and running was unsafe because of the poor footing underneath. The strong line of the Bulldogs held the Swedes in their only scoring threat after they had blocked a McPherson punt in scoring territory and advanced to the one yard line.

Carpenter, flashy Bulldog halt-back, broke loose on a long end run in the third quarter, but was brought down before he could cross the goal line. McPherson held an advantage in first downs, punts, and yards gained from passes, but the Swedes held a slight advantage of sit yards in the yardage gained from scrim-

The following is the summary of the game play by play.

First Quarter

Bethany made a short kick of about 10 yards and Keck fell on the ball. A long pass from Wiggins to Binford was incomplete. Bethany

drew a five penalty, but on the

next play Carpenter was thrown for

a two yard loss. Wiggins punted 40 yards, and Bethany in turn booted a 24-yard punt on the first play.

which Carpenter returned three yards. Carpenter made two yards and B. Anderson added three more

through the line. A pass from Wig-gins to Binford was good for 12 yards and a first and ten. Carpenter made four yards on an off-tackle play, and Anderson was thrown for a loss of one yard. An attempted pass was intercepted by Bethany and re-

Bethany made six yards in two plays then Pedigo punted 24 yards, Wiggins was stopped for no gain. He then punted 35 yards and the Swedes re-turned it six yards. Pedigo punted 20 yards, and Wiggins promptly sent the ball back 51 yards and over the goal line. With the ball in Bethany’s possession on the twenty yard line, Pedigo hit the line for one yard: McPherson was penalized, five yards for being off aide. Anderson added a yard for the Swedes. Pedigo punt-ed 43 yards and Carpenter returned it five. Binford hit the line for four yards, and Carpenter added Tour more yards. Wiggins punted 47 yards and over the goal line, the Swedes taking the ball on. their own 20-yard line. Anderson made two yards. Rex Anderson went into the McPher-son lineup for Hochstrasser. McPherson was penalized five yards. Pedigo punted 32 yards. Carpenter was thrown for a one yard loss. Wiggins punted, but it was blocked and the ball went out of bounds. Bethany took the ball on McPhersons 19-yard-line. Pedigo made three yards as the quarter ended.

Second Quarter

Pedigo made 10 yards and a first and ten, putting the ball on the six yard line. He was thrown for a yard loss, then bit the line for two yards. Again Pedigo hit the line for three yards. Anderson threw himself at the stubborn Bulldog line and made a scant yard. The Bulldogs took the ball on their own yard line, and after a five yard penalty on Bethany Wiggins punted out 47 yards. A. Ander-son gained two yards, then added five more. Pedigo was stopped for no gain. He then punted 21 yards. Carpenter was downed for a one yard loss. Reigel went in for Carmichael

Whoopee! —no school today!! Such was the sentiment of McPherson college students Monday morning, because of the fact that no classes awaited them. A holiday was declared by the faculty, largely as a recognition of the excellent work done by the football team this year, and especially their commendable work and good sportsmanship in playing the Bethany Swedes to a tie in the chill and mud of Thanksgiving afternoon.

The extra day of Thanksgiving vacation gave many students an opportunity to remain at their home longer before returning to school routine.

This was the first time for many years that, there have not been at-tempts or alleged attempts on the part of McPherson or Bethany college students to point up and otherwise mar the campus of the other school pre-ceding the Bulldog-Swede football game. Let us be thankful that no such things happened this year to Impair the fine and sportsmanlike spirit of rivalry between the two colleges, and that the agreement made several years ago between them can be maintained

Before, during, and after the game both players and spectators on both sides displayed good sportsmanship. Quite naturally each was very anxious to win, but the scoreless tie at least prevented disappointment for one team and its followers. An examination of the summary shows that the game was fought on very nearly even terms, so that neither team can claim a moral victory or a superior playing power.

Bethany, we are sorry we didn't beat you, but we are glad it was a clean and well fought game. "When that is true, both teams win.

Dr. J. D. Bright brought before the group a resolution favoring Jane Adams as a delegate from the United States to the disarmament conference. The resolution was passed and is to be signed as a petition by the  students and faculty.

Dr. John Nevin Sayre, editor of The World Tomorrow, who spoke at the city-wide mass peace meeting held recently in McPherson, is a careful student of international relations and a man who has learned the real situations in foreign countries by visiting them and studying their problems at first hand.

He advocated the following points as indispensable factors toward insuring international peace in the future:

1.    Cancel foreign war debts.

2.    Disclaim sole German War guilt.

3.    Recognize Russia.

I. Strengthen our diplomatic peace machinery.

5.    Effect actual and substantial disarmament.

6.    The people refuse to fight or pay the bills for war.

Dr. Sayre quoted President Hoover's statement that the United States is spending seventy per cent, more for arms now than she did before the War, and more than any other nation.

Most of these joints meet violent apposition, but the roots of this opposition can in every case be traced to conflict with vested financial interests, prejudice due to ignorance or distorted propaganda, or kindred reasons.

It all boils down to this: if peace is to be a reality and the Cohfer-ence at Geneva next February is to accomplish its purpose, some one is going to have to make sacrifices, in some cases losses of money and posi-tion, but in the majority of instances people will merely have to give up some of their prejudices and face actual facts. They will have to recognize the fact that hatred, distrust, selfishness, and greed are not sources of peace and good will between individuals, and likewise not between nations. They are not in the same category with World Peace.


Things that can happen when three radio stations come in on the same wave length is said to be the experience of a man who had just in-stalled a radio and had not learned all the fine points of eliminating cross current. He tuned in, getting three stations on the same wave length. One was a minister. One was telling the conditions of the roads and the third was a lecture on poultry. Here is what he heard:

The Old Testament tells us that the baby chicks should detour one mile south of Salina and listen to the words of the prophets. Be careful in the selection of your eggs and you will find hard-surfaced roads on to Garden City. We find in Genesis that the roads are muddy just west of the hen house and clean straw is essential if you would save your soul. After passing through Leavensworth, turn north to Jerico. Three wise men bought a large size incubator on account of a bad detour. The baby chicks were troubled with the pip and bond issue is talked of in the Holy City. Keep the feet clean and dry, live a life of righteousness and turn south one mile west of the school house. Much care should be used in commanding the sun to stand still as there is a bad wash-out at the bridge at Paola and the road to Salvation is under repair, making it necessary for 70 degrees in the brooder house at all times. After you leave Winfield, trains you so these things the wrath of the Lord will cause the pin feathers to fall out and detour one mile south. Many are called, but few have any luck unless the gravel road between Topeka and Lawrence is mixed with the feed. Out of 500 eggs one should get roads from Coffeyville to Tulsa, and the Lord commanded Noah to build the Ark Just one telle west of Wichita. It rained 10 days and 40 nights and caused an eight-mile detour just wet of the brooder house. Many tourists from the House of David are trying the Plymouth Rock mixed with concrete and a desire to do right. —From the "Junior Pep"

“Attitudes Toward Christianity’' is the Subject

Sum., Nov. 29—Corrine Bowers led an interesting discussion in Christian Endeavor tonight on "Atti-tudes Toward Christianity. " The leader and several others took part in an impressive devotional period.

The first talk was “What is the World's Attitude Toward Christianity? " by Martha Andes. Miss Andes classified humanity into three groups: first, those who wished to enjoy the benefits of Christianity without making any sacrifices; sec-ond, those who are distinctly against Christian principles: and third, those who want Christianity for themselves and all others alike. Glen Austin spoke on "What is our Christian Duty? " He pointed out that, among

other things we must take Christ in earmest and overcome prejudices.

The college Christian Endeavor will not meet next Sunday night because of the communion service to be held in the church basement.

Among the many things to be thankful for, one of the greatest was the fact that Prof. J. Hugh Heckman was present for the first time In many months, during which time he has been ill.

Pictures of Two from Each Class to be Taken for Yearbook

Too many people are behind in their payments for the 1932 Quadrangle, according to Donald Trostle, editor, and Verle Ohmart, business manager of the yearbook. All students who signed up for the special price of four dollars for the hook, provided that payment was made at once, should see either Trostle or Ohmart at office and arrange for set-tlement

The panels of the senior pictures are now being prepared by the annual staff and by Leonard Walker, photographer, for delivery to the Mid-continent Engraving company at Wichita, the firms which is doing the engraving work on the Quadrangle.

Editor Trestle has announced that, the class representatives for the feu-ture section of the annual are to be selected at meetings of the various classes, to be held Friday morning at eight o'clock. One boy and one girl is to be chosen from each class, on the basis of ability to combine cheerfulness with industry, extracurricular activities, and all round scholarship on the campus. This choice will thus conform to the theme of the book, which is "Cheerfulness".

All of Squad Attend Feed in College Church Parlors

Dr. Schwalm Contributes “The Victory of Mary Christopher”


What's this we hear? — perhaps only an idle rumor, but it smacks of

truth. We tried not to believe it, but finally gave in to the evident facts of the case.

Well, it all simmers down to this -no other but Prof. Adelyn Taylor, professor or physical education, was forced to put some of her agile gymnastics into practice Friday evening when she got home from who knows where and found the door of Kline hall security locked. Knocking railed to get any results for the simple reason that there was no one inside to respond. Matron Holsinger's keys proved to be useless in gaining entrance to the dormitory, so the only thing left for the dignified lady pro-fessor to do was to climb the fire escape and hunt up a window that could be opened by persuasion or

The only way to handle the situa-tion seems to be to hope that the incident will not lower the dignity of the M. C. faculty, and also that it will not put ideas into the heads of any innocent little freshman girls.

Tues., Dec. 1—Coach Melvin Bin-ford was host to the members of the football squad this evening at a feed held in the parlors of the Church of the Brethren, beginning at 6:30.

Battles to a Scoreless Tie with Baker Wildcats



McPherson and Baker Tied with. 338 per cent Standings

Thurs., Nov 26— Kansas Wesley-an university retained its undefeated record for the season and undisputed lead in the Kansas Conference with its twelfth straight game without a loss today against. Baker, Coach Mackies' Coyotes battled about in mud and water and snow with the Baker Wildcats for four long quarters, but neither team was able to score, although both reached the opposite ten yard line at times. The fine punting of Robinson was a feature of the game, and it served to keep the ball in Baker's territory most of the time.

The Thanksgiving games leave Baker and McPherson tied for last place in the loop, while Ottawa and  Bethany share the second rung.

now look forward to next season with this fine squad of men and a few good additions. The Bulldogs ought to be well up in the running.

Speaking of punting, the strong toe of Leonard Wiggins has been one of the strong factors in the work

done this season by the Bulldogs. Game after game he has outpunted; his opponents and gained yardage thereby when the opposition in the line became too stiff. Even in the Turkey Day game, when the ball was wet and the footing poor, he made an average of over 31 yards in his punts, despite the fact that one of them was unfortunately blocked by the Swedes. Wiggins also has an accurate eye when he passes, and his ball carrying isn’t so bad either.
























Plans for Barnstorming Trip Are Not Yet Definite

The Bulldog basketeers are scheduled to begin the season's basketball games with a battle against the Washburn college Ichabods, which is to take place In the Community Building on Wednesday night, December 16. The game is to be played earlier than usual in the evening because of a conflict with a play given by the McPherson a Junior high school.

Plans concerning a week's barn-storming trip just preceding Christ-mas are not yet definite, as a sufficient number of games to make the trip possible have not yet been arranged for.

The Kansas Conference schedule for the Bulldogs calls for the first game on January 15 against the Baker Wildcats. The complete conference schedule follows:

Elmer Heck, captain of the Bull

dog eleven, was chosen by Leslie Ed-monds and the various college coach-es as guard and captain on the sec-ond All Kansas Conference team this year. Carpenter, the hard driving halfback of the Bulldog team, was also given a place on the second team, as was Res Anderson, the ag-gressive end on the Bulldog line.

In addition, to these places on the

second All-conferenc team, Keck,

Carpenter R. Anderson, and Mowbray received honorable mention for the Kansas All-State team, selected from all the colleges of Kansas by  Leslie Edmonds.

The Topeka Daily Capital All-con-ference selections are as follows: FIRST TEAM

Ends—Carlson, Wesleyan V. An-derson, Bethany.

Tackles—Toews, Bethany; Mize, Baker.

Guards— McIntyre, Wesleyan; Hartshorne, Bethany (captain) Center- Spear. Baker.

Backs — Robinson, Wesleyan; Knapper, Ottawa; Crookson, Baker; Buckland, Wesleyan.


Ends- spoug, Ottawa: R. Ander-son, McPherson.

Tackles—Hazel, Ottawa; Hampton, Wesleyan.

Guards—Eckert, Wesleyan; Keek, McPherson (captain).

Center—Waters, Ottawa.

Backs—Boxberger, Wesleyan: Senior, Ottawa; Carpenter, McPherson; Pike, Baker,

George Zinn and Rex Anderson were going good against, the Swedes, and Keck as usual fought like nobody's business in an effort to beat the Swedes before his career with the Bulldog gridsters was over. In fact, great credit is due to every man who went into the lineup Thursday, as well as to those who had to watch the game from the sidelines. Those latter had much to do with the success of the players who actually got into the game.

In addition to the four seniors mentioned in last week's Spectator who were to play their last game with the Bulldogs, mention should he made of Ralph Johnston and Roy Peebler, two seniors who have given of their best, to the team, even though they did not see very much actual service in varsity games.

With football now going down as history we will soon be in the midst of basketball. We have four letter-men, some other members of last year's squad, and with a right good looking bunch of freshmen we should have a good team to put on the floor this year. It is now almost certain that the Bulldog basketeers will meet the Washburn college team, coached by George Gardner, former Bulldog mentor, in an exhibition game here December 16.

Twenty-Four Men out to Practice Tuesday Night

Tues., Dec. 1—Twenty-four men were on hand for the second official basketball practice since the closing of the football season, held this eve-ning in the college gymnasium. Prac-tices are to be held regularly from now on, every evening at 3: 30 o'

Coach Binford now has the addition of a large number of football men to work on, and the squad will doubtless have some stiff and frequent workouts the next few days in preparation for the first game with Washburn college, which takes place on the Community Hall court on Wednesday night. December 16 The Washburn team, directed by George Gardner, former Bulldog ath-letic coach, is expected to show the Bulldogs some real competition, as Washburn teams have a habit of be-ing winners.

The list of men out for practice this evening includes the following: Posey Jaminson, Loren Rock, Ralph Johnston, John Kindy, Harold Bin-ford, Verle Ohmart, Art Ediger, Cheater Siemens, Wilbur Yoder, Rus-sell Carpenter, Leonard Wiggins, Harold Reinecker, Hobart Ikenberry, Harry Breeden, Kenneth Moore, Rex

The Swede game is over; neither team could score, and both teams

proved that they had some fine foot- ball in them. We will probably never know what the score would have been if the game would have been played on a dry field, but we feel as though it would have been some-thing different.

The Swedes had one good chance to score that was spoiled by the Bull dogs.

The Swedes blocked a Me- Pherson punt in scoring territory and the rugged line of the Bulldogs held off the repeated thrusts of the  Swedes.

Carpenter made a pretty run in the third quarter, and almost got  away for a touchdown. And he might have gone still farther, but spectators were out on the field a few yards and impeded his progress. The entire McPherson backfield was play-ing good ball and fumbles were few even though the ball was quite wet.

The Bulldog line was charging in fine shape and the Swedes could make but little headway through the Bulldog forward wall. Time and again one of the linemen would break through and stop the Bethany runner before he had made a gain and sometimes before he reached the

line of scrimmage.

We would like to have seen Iken-berry get a chance to place kick when he was sent into the game "Ikey" has been doing some nice kicking recently, and is credited with winning a number of high school games by his accurate place kicks, if given time he might have booted a goal for the Bulldogs and made a far different score.

Well, its to late to talk of what might have happened, but the Bull-dogs certainty played their old rivals to a standstill. The Canines made one more first down than their oppo-nents, made more yards from passes, and outpunted them, but the Swedes had a slight advantage in yards gained from the scrimmage. We must

ill the Bethany lineup. Wiggins punt-ed 36 yards. Pedigo made four yards through the line. Bethany was penalized fifteen yards. Pedigo punted 45 yards and Carpenter returned it 10 yards. Again Bethany drew a penalty of five yards. Binford made three yards, and E. Anderson got two more yards to complete the first and ten. McPherson was penalized fifteen yards. Carpenter gained three yards. Wiggins was thrown for a six yard loss on an attempted punt. On the next try he punted 40 yards, the Swedes fumbled', and McPherson recovered. Anderson hit the line for two yards. Wiggins punted 30 yards and the Swedes returned the ball four yards. Bethany's Anderson made one yard. Bethany fumbled and Keek recovered for the Bulldogs. Carpenter made two yards. An attempted pass was incomplete. Wiggins punted 20 yards and Bethany took the ball on her own 10 yard line. Everly made two yards and Anderson made three more. Zimmerman went in for Anderson of Bethany. Pedigo punted 30 yards just as the half ended.

Third Quarter

McPherson, kicked to Bethany and they returned to their own 21 yard line. A. Anderson gained three yards, then Pedigo added another yard. Pedigo punted for 28 yards. Wiggins punted 30 yards and the Swedes returned it five yards. Pedigo made three yards in two attempts, then punted eighteen yards and out of bounds. Corpenter took the ball on a wide end run and advanced 24 yards for another first and ten. Anderson gained one yard, then Car-
