Tues., Mar. 15- The McPherson College student and Faculty directory  published by the Quadrangle staff, was distributed on the campus this morning. The Directory contains the advertisements which will appear in the 1932 Quadrangle. It lists all students, faculty members, and others connected with or employed by the college, giving names, addresses, and telephone numbers.

oratory in the Old Line Contest, al-though during that time the local school has won three second place decisions.

McPherson orators coached by Professor Maurice A. Hess have won first in extemporaneous speak-ing for the second consecutive year, an excellent record considering the fact that this phase of forensics is not stressed on our own campus. Last year John, "Jack" Lehman was

the winner.

Four contests were held at Man-

tempore for both men and women. The winners in the finals of these four were as follows: men's oratory McPherson first, Southwestern sec-ond; men's extemp. — McPherson first, Southwestern second; women's oratory-Bethany first. Southwestern second; women’s extemp— Southwestern first, Manhattan second. Of the total placings after the two preliminary rounds before the finals, Southwestern was credited with seven, and McPherson was second with four. Emporia Teachers had three, Bethany two, Washburn two, Dakar two, Manhattan two, C. of E. one, Sterling one, and Hays one.

Mildred Doyle, McPherson contestant in both oratory and extempore, led her division in the oratory preliminaries, but failed to place in the finals. In extempore she placed second during the preliminaries, but again failed to place in the finals. Hope Nickel, who was entered in extempore only, ranked fourth among the ten participating schools, thereby barely missing a chance at the finals. William Juhnke, the remaining representative of McPherson college, did creditable work, but failed to reach the finals in both men's contests.

The Manhattan contact included three rounds, in the first two rounds most of those competing were eliminated by the judges, leaving only six contestants to enter the third and final round.

Ward Williams, the winner of both men's divisions, is now finishing his third year as a member of the varsity men’s debate squad, and has another year in which to help in

Chicago Psychologist Brought to Campus by Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A.


Talks Also Given in Chapel and Other Group Discussions During Week

Mon., Mar. 14—Mr Perry Rohrer, clinical psychologist and a member of the faculty of Bethany Biblical Seminary, Chicago, was on the McPherson college campus from March 8 to 13, under the auspices of the Y. W. C. A., and Y. M. C. A. He presented many worthwhile and stimulating interests in the students. He appeared in chapel addressesm, group discussions, and individual conferences.

Mr. Rohrer's greatest contributions to the students came through the individual conferences in which he aided students in problems of personal adjustment. Over fifty students had the opportunity to interview him. His influence on the campus has been one of the most out-standing events of the year, and can not be entirely measured by the immediate results.

One of Mr. Rohrer’s most effective talks was given Thursday morning at a combined meeting of the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. in the chapel, on the subject of "Vocational Guidance ". He said that the fundamental principles in dealing with vocational guidance are interests, ability, and opportunity; contrary to the popular belief, there are at least fifteen or

The choice should be based on the factors mentioned.

He urged that before one decides upon a profession he should scrutin-ize the field especially to see that it is not overcrowded. One of the fields which the speaker recommended was the ministry, where he said there was a great lack of men.


Will Represent College At State Contest April 15

Tues., Mar. 15—Grace Heckman and Lilburn Gottmann were elected this morning to head the Y. W. C. A. and the Y. M. C. A. for next year. They will take their offices next

Both have been prominent students on the college campus during the three years they have been enrolled at McPherson. Each has served one year as president of the College Church Christian Endeavor, and both have taken active parts to many other campus activities. Last fall Miss Heckman was chosen by her class as one of the two representative students for the 1932 Quadrangle. During the Iast year she has been an active member of the Y. W. C. A. cabinet. The new Y. M. C. A. president has been especially prominent in forensics, serving two years on the second debate squad and being a member of the varisty team this year. He has done work as a student pastor and member of college deputation teams, and has been one of the most active members of both the total World Service Group and the Y. M. C. A.

The complete Y. W. C. A. election results were as follows: president, Grace Heckman; vice-president, Cor-rine Bowers: secretary, Una Ring: treasurer, Dorothy Dresher; music chairman, Gulah Hoover.

Pretent Six Programs—Sponsored by World Service Group


Four spankers of nation wide fame have been secured to be on hand for the second annual McPherson College Booster Banquet, scheduled to take place in the McPherson Community Building on Friday evening, April 1. Plans for the big event are now rapidly going forward. Dr. J. J. Yoder is acting as chairman of the arrangements committee in the absence of Pres. V. F. Schwalm, who is spending several days in Idaho.

Dr. Burris Jenkins, noted radio speaker, author, and lecturer, will be the headliner on the program for the banquet. Dr. Jenkins is the well known minister of the Linwood Boulevard Christian Church in Kansas City, and in his varied career has been a president of a college in Indi-ana, a world traveler and lecturer, an author of no little distinction, editor of the Kansas City Post, and a leading educator of the United States. For several years he has spoken over the Kansas City Star radio station, WDAF. His subject for the Booster Banquet is to be "Education for Modern America".

Others who will be present and give abort addresses during the Booster Banquet program are Dean Paul Lawson of Kansas university at Lawrence. State Superintendent of Schools George Allen of Topeka, and Superintendent W. B. Huesner of the Salina public schools. All are well known in Kansas educational circles, and are expected to make interesting and helpful contributions to the Booster Banquet program.

The McPherson college musical organizations making plans to furnish a part of the entertainment for the evening, and many others, in-cluding McPherson business men and other Individuals interested in the continued growth of the college and with it the community, are cooperating to make the 1932 Booster Banquet is hoped that the record can be sur-passed which was made last year, when approximately 575 people crowded into Community Hall for the event during the worst blizzard

Tickets for the banquet will be sold at a minimum price of ten dollars, with additional tickets for other members of the tame family obtainable at one dollar each. Many friends of the college will give several times this amount for their tickets, the entire proceed, going into the Mc-Pherson College Loyally Fund for the support and endowment of the school.

Mcpherson meets two DEBATE FOES THIS WEEK

Wins for Both McPherson and Bethany Will Result in Tie

If both McPherson and Bethany can succeed in winning their debates Friday night, which seems quite likely  a dual debate between the Swedes and Bulldogs will be necessary to determine the state championship. Both teams are now tied for first place with three wins and one loss to the credit of each. On February 24 the McPherson affirmative team met the Swedes here and sent them home in defeat, but the McPherson negative team was in turn beaten by

Wichita university the same week.

This weak McPherson debates Friends university here on Friday night, while the remaining team journeys to Sterling for a debate.

In the event of a tie between Mc-Pherson and Bethany, a dual debate will be held soon to determine who is champion. Instead of one critic judge for each debate, the new de-bate schedule for this year calls for three judges for a debate necessary to break a tie.

The other day a college student, tabilating a list of the greatest living men, included Dwight Morrow. On being informed of his error, he exclaimed: "When did he die? I didn't even know he intended to!" To remind the average college student that the walk surrounding the campus does not mark the edge of the world, but that he is living in a world within a world, is a problem.

In the first place, he has a negative interest in world affairs. The col-lege world is a removed area which requires all contentration and effor. The foortball score is much more immediate concern than Japan and China om Mancuria, and the student council president outshines Gandhi. A presidential election is not to be compared with the class president election.

There are some students who have the mental faculty for being inter-ested and even concerned, but constant association with persons whose sphere of information and interest is narrow has caused their own to shrink. Such persons are truly ‘‘victims of their environments". This narrow environment might be broadened by information on current events given in the classroom. It seems that occasionally in any course a remark linking a currant event with a textual fact could be appropriate. But very many college courses consist of a packet of notes (they should be tied with a faded blue ribbon) read year after year. The many college courses lack "timeliness" and

However, taking for granted that a student has interest, at least a dormant interest, in world affairs, that interest is often deprived of development because of the old hue and cry of "There isn't time". Over-activity has made the college student's life one of straining tension which a little extra reading would break. When the required outside reading is done, there is no time left for newspapers or periodicals, unless it should be a glimpse at the banner bead. If war had not brought us banner bands, the demands of the college student might have. With no time, no apparent vital concern, little contact with world-minded persons, and no link instruc-lion, the problem of keeping informed while attending college is a vital

But it is not hopeless. There are college students who keep "up”, and an analysis and combination of their methods may help to solve the matter for individuals. If the interest is there, somewhere in the daily routine should be fixed a definite reading schedule. To rely upon spare moments is inadequate; a portion of time systematically is much more successful. With limited time, however, the choice should be a good metropolitan paper in addition or in preference to the best state or local. If time is very limited, various digests and condensations may be employed as supplements.

Alertness will find ways and means of keeping information. Com-panionsip with and a cultivation of people with similar interests will open conversation as a means. Room should be made in the curriculum for one subject which the student knows makes use of contemporary his-tory—whether that subject be in the field of history, economics, journal-ism, art, sociology or science. And just as there are courses liked with present-day conditions, so there are clubs and organizations which have contemporary bases- perhaps in drama, in art, or in literature.

The alert student will be able to gain much information of value through speeches or lectures. Often such lectures are compulsory anyhow, and the well-informed student is the one who listens. To help week well-informed requires not only effort but the development of a receptive and alert attitude. The adage "Keep your eyes and ears opem" is not for amiss.—O. D.—Coe Coamos.

Fri., Mar. 11- Three one-act plays were given in the college chapel this evening by students in the Principles of Interpretation class. They were enjoyed by a large group of students and others of the comm unity. The Student Council sponsored the pro-

Miss Della Lehman, the instructor of the class, coached the plays, which were entitled to "Columbine", by C. C. Clements, "Where But in America", by Oscar M. Wolff, and "Jazz and Minuet", by Ruth Giorloff.

In "Columbine”, the title role was played by Rosalind Almen, as Nancy, a sweet little girl who has kept all her illusions. Genevieve played the part Of her hard-boiled flapper friend, Matte. These two completed the cast.

George Peters took the part of Bob Espenhayne in :Where But in America"  while Marjorie Brown played the part of his wife, Mollie Espen-hayne. Mattie Shay played the Swe-dish servant girl, Hilda.

It was necessary to go outside the interpretations class to find men for characters in "Jazz and Minuet". A part of this play was shown as a dream which took place in the colonial period of 1775. Mrs. Van Hay-don, a handsome woman of thirty-


Miss Delta Lehman and Miss Margaret Shelley have recently introduced a new and interesting project into their French and German class-es. The students are corresponding with college students in France and Germany. The students in the Ger-man classes are writing in English and will receive letters written in German. The French students, how-ever, are writing in French and will receive letters written in English.

Arrengements for the correspon-dence between nations were made through the International Corres-pondence Bureau, Penbody School for Teachers, Nashville, Tennessee.


We college students glibly utter the word "personality" but how many of us really know what we are talking about? When we say an individual is possessed of " personality"? Of all the words used on the campus

"personality" is the most nuzzling of all.

Funk and Wagnalls describes perfonality as referring to the "prom-inent traits or attributes of some particular person" wether good or bad. All well and good, but whenever we wish to praise and individual we stumble around for some expression of our appreciation, we gasp, we stutter, and finally end our canting about by saying he has "personality" and pat our selves on the back for thinking of such an appropriate word, when in real-ity the word has been used and abused until it is threadbare.

If is a great religipus leader and attracts enthusiasts he has “personality"; if a fellow is upilar with the "gang" he has "personality"; If a girl is a natural leader she possesses "personality"; if a teacher is liked it is because "personality" and so on ad infinitum.

Were this all-descriptive term qualified by some adjective it would not be quite so objectionable, although to us it still carries with it an ill aroma. We advocate the use of thought, discretion and adjectives in the employment of the term "personality" in characterizing a fellow being.

All students are urgently request-ed to take only one spectator from the box each week. This year, per-haps to a greater extent than ever before, the business staff of the Spectator is having a hard time to keep finances above board so that the paper can survive. Needless waste of Spectator copies results in added expense for printing, which in turn comes back upon the students themselves through the Student Council.


" In the spring a young man's fancy- or is it a young woman's-

lightly turns to thoughts of love." Since the cold weather has abated and we’re beginning to experience balmy breezes again. "It looks as though there’ll be a fresh supply of "cases" and romances.

Just what there is about spring that causes all this sudden tenderness is difficult to explain until you make a few comparisons. Imagine (Just try and do it) getting sentimental about the girl who goes ice-skating with you and who borrows your handkerchief, falls down every minute or two, gets cold and bleary-eyed and begs to go home just when you’re in the midst of an exciting game of ice hockey. Contrast her with the little number with irreproachably make-up, a new finger wave, and a fluttery organdy dress, who strolls dows Euclid with you after the evening repast. Add to the latter picture a few rays of sunshine, warm spring breezes, and a thrilling cardinal and you’re in what the doctors call a receptive condition for that ancient disease called "love sickness."

All supplies are being donated, and the entire proceeds from the admission price of thirty-five cents per plate will go to the college.

Red Cross chapter and her co-worker, Miss Ethel Peterson, came to the McPherson collage chapel service this morning with messages concerning the work which the Red Cross is doing in administering relief to the needy and the unemployed.

Miss Younberg spoke first, telling of the increased demands which have been made of the Rod Cross in rea part of the national relief program which now holds the attention of social workers, in giving her picture of the depression as derived from the McPherson community, Miss Youngberg gave the following figures; In 1930 there was an increase of 17% over 1929 in the number of cases handled by the local chapter in 1931 there was an increase of 306 % over the 1930 total. Relief funds and expenditures naturally hare not kept, up with this phenomenal increase in demands for aid.

The speaker said that the general public is usually in sympathy with relief work, but several reactions are met. Some hold the old fash-ioned view that those who want to can work and earn a living: some give gladly, but wastefully and care-lessly; others believe in carefully supervised contributions to social work by study of individual cases to be the most effective.

Miss Peterson, who is especially active in actual case work for the local Red Cross, gave a picture of the typical family with which she has to deal—that in which the head of the family is unemployed. Among the many services rendered by the social worker in such cases are financial relief and attention to food, clothing, health, education, and employment. The Red Cross is able to

are willing to cooperate and make the best of what relief they receive.

Fur track Coach Melvin Binford has several lettermen and some freshmen with good high school rec-ords behind them.

Verle Ohmart is a senior and a quarter-miter who will probably be better than ever this year. He is also a sprinter of considerable ability. Edward Bradley is a pole vaulter, and also high jumps, broad jumps, and throws the javelin. Herbert Mowbray is a quarter-miller and also a relay man. John Kindy won his latter in the high hurdles last year.

Loren Rock, a junior, has been out of school for two years, but he will be remembered as a star Javelin thrower. When he was enrolled in McPherson before he was rated as one of the best in the Kansas Conference. He also puts the shot and throws the discus.

George Zinn is the star weight man of the Bulldogs. He is specially good with the shot put and discus, and he also throws the Javelin. Ward Williams is the only letter man in the distance runs, and has shown up well in the high jump. Wallace McGill is a quarter-miler and a good relay man. In addition he runs the half mile.

In tennis there are two letter men back for the 1931 season. Harold Binford and Lilburn Gotmann played good tennis last year, and ought to show even better after another year's experience. Delbert Kelly, who was out of school last year and was kept out of conference play two years ago because of an injury, is now back and seems to have a good chance for a position on the varsity squad. Charles Austin is another who must be dealt with in determining positions on the tennis team.

Besides these men Coach Binford will have numerous new men from the freshman class who will soon be showing their ability on the track and field. Many have made good records in high school competition.

Track practice is now beginning in earnest, although some of the men have been taking their workouts independently for several weeks. With the advent of better weather the tennis courts can soon he put in shape for play after a rest of several

BASEBALL NEXT IN LINE Intra-mural Play Gives Chance for More General Exercise-

Aids Track Men

intra-mural basketball has been in progress during most of the winter. It will now be dropped and some sim-liar teams will be organized in base-bull.

Approximately sixty men participated in the Intra-mural basketball league. These men nominated captains in a general meeting held last fall, and the captains nominated chose their teams. Coach Melvin Binford was in general supervision of the league and members of the varsity basketball squad did most of the officiating. The league was a decided success and Coach Binford was largely responsible for the interest and enthusiasm that was displayed by the men in the league.

Soon after the tournament was started it was very evident that com-petition was going to be keen and as a result close games were many. At the start of the season a few games resulted in upsets, but us the teams progressed nothing, or perhaps everything, could have been termed as upsets because of the equality of the teams competing.

One of the main objects of the Intra-mural basketball league was to give exercise to the college men and condition those who will participate in track and football. Coach Bin-ford has as his aim making athletic competition available for all men in McPherson college. The intra-mural

An important feature of the league won the rapid progress made by individuals. Some fellows played who had had little or no previous basketball experience and at the close of the season were playing good basket-ball.

The captains of the various teams were J. T. Williams, Cleo Minear, Wilbur Whiteneck, Wilbur Yoder, Wallace McGill, Gordon Kraus, and Russell Carpenter.


Intra-Mural All-Stars Chosen by Captains and Members of Vanity Basketball Team

Forwards—Wilbur Yoder and Charles Austin.

Center- George Himes (captain).

Guards—Cleo Minear and Wallace McGill.

Second Team

Forwards—William Juhnke and Rey Bartes (captain).

Center— Lilburn Gottmann.

Guards—Wilbur Whiteneck and J. T. Williams.

Above are the first and second intra-mural basketball league teams as picked by the voting of the members of the varsity basketball squad and the seven captains of the intramural teams. Like most all-confer-ence teams this team could probably stand some changes and would not suit every individual, but it is the result of the voting and will be con-sidered official.

George Himes was placed at the center position by every voter and as a result he has been given the cap-

taincy of the first team. he has height and makes an excellent pivot man. He is especially valuable as a tip-in man and is a hard fighter. He was probably the best player in the league and always worked for the interest of his team.

At the forward position are Wilbur Yoder had Charles Austin. Yoder has a good eye for the basket and is a good scorer. He is continually rustling the ball and is a good floor man. Austin at the other forward post is a good scorer and a tip-in artist. He is a good sport and ranges the floor well.

The guard positions are taken by Cleo Minear and Wallace McGill. Minear is a good offensive guard and also covers his man well on defense. He has an accurate shot and is a good team player. McGill is a great defensive man. He is our favorite for breaking up shots under the basket and intercepting passes.

The second team has good players on is also, and in a few cases the voting was close between first and

Roy Bartles is given the captaincy of the second team and he well deserves; he is a smooth player having a fast dribble and a good shot. Juhnke at the other forward position is a good scorer and a fine sport. He

Gottmann is placed at the center position. He uses his height under the basket to good advantage and is a good man to put the ball into scoring position.

Wilbur Whiteneck at guard posi-tion is a tall man and his size is a great asset to him at the defensive position. He has lots of fight and directs it well for the interests of his team. At the other guard posi-tion is J. T. Williams, although not so tall he is good at getting rebounds and is a clever passer and a good team player.

Besides these men the following were given honorable mention: John Kindy, Waller Weddle, Gordon Kraus, Elmer Keck, Frank Hutchinson, Lloyd Larsen, Wayne Johnson, George Zinn, B. F. Pankratz, and George Lerew.

The intra-mural basketball league ended in a four-way tie as a result of Minear losing to Yoder by a score of 23 to 17 in yesterday's final game. In the other game on yesterday's schedule Whiteneck won easily from Carpenter and thus created the tie between Minear Williams, Yoder, and Whiteneck. By the results of the final league standings it is clearly evident as to the evenness of the

At the gracious invitation of Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Vaniman the sophomores enjoyed a party in their home on College Hill last Saturday night, with Elsie Rump acting as hostess.

The motif of St. Patrick's Day was used throughout the evening. The groups enjoyed playing Patrick, and later the guests were favored with a reading by Una Ring and two vocal selections by Blanc Harris.

Near the dose of the evening the guests passed to the charmingly ap-pointed dining room. There dainty green and white refreshments were served from a long table set with a Swiss embroidered cloth, centered with a bowl of green and white, carnations and lighted green tapers.

Other entertainment during the evening consisted of music from the

electric Baldwin piano. Mrs. V. F. Schwalm was a special guest, while regrets ware received from Miss Delta Lehman and Mr. Perry Rohrer.

Tues., Mar, 8—With our religion goes our institutions and our civilization, the things which natives often do not want, according to statements made by Pres. V. F. Schwalm at the Mission Study Group meeting held this afternoon. It was the first of a series sponsored by the local World Service Group.

Part of Dr. Schwalm's message is contained in the following, which he quoted to the group: "The missionary has a hard Job; he teaches the heathen about Jesus, then they learn about our customs."
