Thousands of young peopke enrolled in American colleges and universities today have no business to be there. and would serve both them-selves and the institution Involved If they withdrew and gave up all thoughts of getting any more education.

This Is the sentiment of Dr. Albert K. Heckel. dean of men at the University of Missouri, In a recent Interview. Anyone who has ever bothered to look Into the matter will be Inclined to agree with him.

That, of course. does not mean that a college education should be withheld from any ambitious and deserving youngster. What it does mean is that thousands of youngsters are In college today simply because they have a notion that It Is the correct thing to do. They don't want to be educated; they are. In fact, not susceptible to an education. They simply clog the wheels and waste the efforts of the Institution they attend. A sharp drop In college enrollment figures would probably be a very healthy Indication.—Hutchinson Herald.


As society has progressed. necessity and common purposes have led people to be drawn Into closer relationship. Success and progress have been only In proportion to our ability to cooperate with oar neighbors. Such progress has been unduly slow and tedious.

Premier Herriot. speaking before a committee on the Disarmament Conference last week, stated that no marked and definite progress could be made until all the nations Involved could cooperate. Nations have advanced proposals rejected amendments, and departed when their selfish shortsighted plans are not heeded. Conferences of nations fail when nations are not willing to forego their own petty hopes for the good of all.

Since the war, nations, old and new. have been groping in the darkness. They have played hide-and-seek with great problems. Our world has been a troubled one and the chaos of the war Is still here. Its presence makes It more difficult to see the problem unbiased. It makes a constructive solution mote difficult. Such a solution must be based upon general principles of thought guided by reason and idealism. The vision of our nations must be kept clear.

Thinkers have kept before us always the vision of the ideal of progress. Later they have hoped the ideal would mature Into policy. Great progress is Impossible when thinkers and policy makers are separated. True progress can be realized only when idealism can be practiced before necessity requires it.

When the vision of those who guide the nations becomes unclear, dissatisfaction and despair become prevalent, Statesmen are wallowing In a ima of muddled policies, They cling to traditions fearing to look to the hope which few have. They have lost sight of the Ideal. They cannot conceive of nation through international machinery solving the problems of a society of Interdependent nations.

True, our thought must advance to a greater extent than our policies, But the scholar who would solve the problems of the troubled must carry the ideal Into creative human machinery. Problems must be solved from a world viewpoint. A world of confusion must give way to a world of clear ideas Of public duty and morality. There must be more Adam Smiths and John Stuart Mills, Narrow-minded politicians must be replaced by men of Idealism and enlightenment,—E. S.


Before the vast magnitude or the tasks ahead, man's spirit has faltered and his vision contracted. The public mood is apprehensive where It should be hold and defensive and broad where broad and generous policy Is most required.

Everywhere men fly to new tariffs and restrictions, to nationalistic policies, domestic currencies, parochial purchasing and personal hoarding :—like frightened rabbits each scurrying to his own burrow. Surely It is for the moment only. Which country of us has not. but a few years since, shown the resources we now require of courage, of personal devotion, of Industrial and financial leadership, of public devotion in a need no greater and a cause more worthy? We are. if we could but grapple with our fate, the most fortunate of the generations of men. In a single lifetime, science has given us a greater power over nature and extended further the range of vision of the exploring mind than In all recorded history. Now, and now only, oar material resources, technical knowledge, and industrial skill, are enough to afford every man of the world's teeming population physical comfort, adequate leisure, and across to everything In our rich heritage of civilization that he has the personal quality to enjoy. We need but the -speculative wisdom to control our specialized activities and thrusting energy of sectional and selfish Interests, To "face the troubles that beset us. this apprehensive and defensive world needs now above all the qualities it seems for the moment to have abandoned—courage and magnanimity.— Sir Arthur Salter.

Bernice Fowler. program chairman of the Y. W. C. A., had charge of the Chapel exercises for Wednesday, November 16 which consisted of a modern morality play, “Where Love Is, God Is," presented by members of the Y W, organization

The play centers around an old Russian cobbler, Martin, whose life has become a weary one due to many grievances At the recommendation of an old friend. Ivan, he buys the Gospels and reads them. He finds God through kind acts and deeds he does for the old snow-shoveler Stephen, and for a soldier’s wife. It was staged with appropriate Russian scenery and costumes.

The east consisted of Martin. Mar garet Oliver; Ivan, Clarke Evans; Stephen. Edith Bechtelheimer; the soldier’s wife, Ruth Hobart; and the voice, an invisible part, Dorothy Fearey, Miss Fowler, aided by Miss Della Lehman, coached the play. The parts were well-played, showing that much time had been spent upon them.

The boys' glee club sang at the close of chapel.


Again a geometric theorem has gone hay-wire. Hasn’t it been prov-ed time and again that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line? Well, this is all abash, as far a this college is concerned. Take, for Instance, this example: You are Industriously studying In the library; the whistle blows which makes It necAssary far you to grab your book and run to your class which is In the science hall across the campus. Instead of going up the steps, through the ad building, and down the steps again— in a straight line—try running around the front of the ad building. It will save time and maybe you will get to your class on time.

p. S. Ye old ed disagrees with the above. Tells me that It is not shorter to go around, but maybe she hasn’t ever waited until the last half minute to try to get to her class on time.

These blue turtle-necked sweaters In which the boys are blossoming out are quite natty looking, don't you think? If one happens to have blue optics, they appear all the "bluer" on account of these sweaters. Quite collegiate some of the males have gone!

Baker baa a nice sympathetic team! Anderson, who received a black eye In Wednesday's practice, wan In for much apologizing from members of the Baker team after the battle Friday at Baldwin. Huh?— They are not as tough as they thought they were. because the Injury was from one of Andy's own col-leagues.

Dean Mohler defined a student as a person still living, thinking, and growing. At that rate some of the so-called students of M C. should not be classed as such: .

It had looked as If all the girls had gone to Baker to be with their football friends Friday; so we had supposed there would be no dates at the lyceum that night. But goodness, gracious! It seems that the whole female and male population had paired off for the evening.

Dear me! And we thought we were getting a scoop When we told that Galen Ogden was Wayne Carr's uncle. Now we are informed that he Is a great uncle. My! My! And at his age!


A two-weeks series of evangelistic meetings will start at the College Church of the Brethren, Sunday, November 27. Rev. M. J. Brougher. prominent evangelist and successful minister, has been secured by the local church to conduct this series of meetings.

Reverend M. J. Brougher Is pastor of the Church or the Brethren In Greensburg, Pennsylvania, where he is recognised as a leading pastor of his city. When he became pastor of the Greensburg church several years ago, there was only a small group of church members. Rev. Brougher had Increased the size of his church to several hundred members at present. He is a member of the General Ministerial Board of the Church of the Brethren. He gives his time to several evangelistic meetings each year. The local church has had his promise for four years.

Reverend Brougher's first service will start at 7:30 p. m next Sunday, with a song service, and he will follow this with his sermon "Jesus Christ the Wonderful at 7:45. The evening services will be character-ized by special music Prof. Alvin Voran to in charge of the music for the meetings.

All-Feminine Cast Disproves Need for Male Characters— Genevieve Crist Takes Difficult Lead—

Setting Laid in Fashion Shop


Play Presented Under    of

M. C. Department of Dramatic Art

Playing before a large and appreciative audience last night, the dramatic art department of the college presented its play, "Nine Till Six." This production was truly the suc-cess and anticipated. Under the able coaching of Miss Della Lehman, head of the department, the play had been well worked up. and each and every actress took her part in splendid fashion.

Perhaps It was as unusual a production as has ever been put on by a McPherson College group in that all roles were played by feminine characters.

The play, an English one, has Its setting throughout In the fashion shop of Mrs. Pembroke. The first scene of the first act Is In the office of the proprietress. Two new employees, Gracie Abbot, a poor girl, and Bridget Penarth. daughter of a lord, are engaged by Mrs. Pembroke through the Influence of Freda, stock-keeper, and Clare, a daughter of the proprietress.

The second scene of this same act takes place In the dressing room of the shop, at closing time. The mannequins and Juniors, after a hard day's work, are hurrying about preparing for a harder night's frolic. At the close of the scene Freda, a trusted member of the staff, steals a flame-colored chiffon dress, for she feels she has a right to pretty things. Mrs. Pembroke's office is the getting of the first scene of the next set. It is sit weeks later. The proprietress and her daughter. Miss Roberts, and Freda, meet to discuss the matter of stealing which has been going on it the store. Gracie is going out with Bridget and her brother; so she borrows a dress for the Afternoon. She is caught with it And accused of all the thefts or the past six weeks.

The last act opens In Mrs. Pembroke's office, and Gracie is about to be turned over to the police. An unusual ending with a note of pathos and several confessions made the play exceedingly interesting and well-liked.

The cast was well chosen; it included Genevieve Crist. playing with restraint the difficult part of the gracious Mrs, Pembroke: Marjorie Brown, cleverly taking the character role of Miss Roberts, the dignified And Austere milliner; Hope Nickel, a bit out of her usual line and handling with skill the difficult part of the dishonest yet likeable Freda; the part of Gracie, a young, bright-eyed, eager apprentice, was played with a dash by Una Ring; her fussy mother was cleverly portrayed by Maxine Ferris; the role of Clare, Mrs. Pembroke's proud daughter, was played with fiery intentness by Ada Brunk; Violet, the flippant, hurrying, scurrying Junior employee, and Daisy and Gladys, lively apprentices, were all nicely handled by Florence Dresher. Odessa Crist, and Ruth Hobart, respectively.

Lady Avonlaye and Bridget her daughter were aristocratically portrayed by Audrey Groves and Oneita Boyer; Carrie, the "Sorry-for-myself” girl, was unusually well presented by Corrine Suter; Beatrice, Judy, and Helen, as mannequins, lent a note of beauty to the play and were represented,, by Maxine Ring Lois Edwards, and Ruth Ihde; the part of the French milliner was filled nicety by Gladys Riddell,

The play had many properties and costumes, making effective its use of unusual and attractive wearing apparel. It's theme was of current interest in that It showed both the employer's and the employee’s side.

To Miss Lehman, her cast, and her helping committers goes the credit for making a success of "Nino Till Six", the outstanding dramatic production given in McPherson this fall.

Students Invited to Party Friday Night on Campus

Student Record a Impressions of Saturday Battle



The chapel Monday, November 21. was conducted by Professor R. E. Mohler who spoke on "The Soul of the Student”, the student referring to everyone who is living and thinking.

He said that the soul of a person may live in either one of two realms, the realm of the skeleton or the one of beauty.

The court of conscience Is always in session: so one should keep ahead of his conscience by doing nothing which will cause him regret later, The skeleton may not seem horrible at first glance, but one should not need to say, "Would that I into done better."


In the absence of President V, F. Schwalm, who left Wednesday for Omaha and Denver, Dr. H. J. Harnly took charge of the chapel on Friday morning, November 18.

The morning program constated of a scripture reading by Dr. Harnly, a vocal solo by Warner Nettleton. and a humorous; reading by Hope Nickel entitled "A Highly Colored Sketch, In which she impersonated two Negro characters.


In order to advertise the play, "Nine Till Six" which was given by the dramatic art class last night, several short skits were put on at the city schools last week.

Thursday morning a group of play-ers went to Junior high and took charge of their chapel program. Besides scenes from the play, a trio composed of Gulah Hoover, Mildred Dahlinger, and Lola Edwards, sang. They were accompanied by Bernice Dresher.

On Friday, at senior high school, In addition to the same program, Miss Della Lehman gave a musical reading.

Thanksgiving vacation, but no chance to go home—a lamentable situation indeed! What to do with those extra hours and days will constitute more or less of a problem for many students who remain here during the week-end.

However the Y. W. C. A, and V. M C. A. have partially solved the problem by planning an all-school social, to be held in the Y. W. C. A. room Friday evening, beginning at eight o’clock.

Ruth Hobart and Galen Ogden, members of the social committees in charge of arrangements for the party, have worked out a varied and interesting program consisting of stunts, contests, games, and other entertainment, and rumor has It that refreshments will not be lacking. All students who remain here are Invited. and a good time is promised to those attending.

Baker Proves Too Strong Foe For McPherson in Game Friday Afternoon

baker 20, McPherson 0 Recovered Fumbles and Intercepted Passes Aid Opponents— Cunningham Stars

The McPherson College Bulldogs lead a Kansas Conference football scoring game in the Baker University Wild-cats by a score of 20 to 0, last Friday afternoon at Baldwin

Led by Cunningham, substitute at fullback for Hardinger in the Baker lineup, the Wildcats managed to win from the Bulldogs. Cunningham scored the second Baker touchdown on a 30-yard run behind nice inter-ference. He also scored the final

touchdown on a short line plunge in

the final quarter

McPherson played very rugged football and Baker's passes caught the Bulldogs flat-footed several times Baker second early In the first quarter after Johnston fumbled a punt and the Wildcats recovered on the seven yard line. The Bulldog line held for three downs, but on

the fourth down a pass from Hardinger to McDaniels secured a touch-


The second Baker touchdown came in the third quarter after Baker in-tercepted a pass deep in the McPher-son territory/ On the first play after this Cunningham went off tackle for

a touchdown

The other touchdown for Baker was made by Cunningham on a line-plunge after a 35-yard pass from Winslow to Ketcham had put the ball in scoring position. Farrow place-kicked two extra points for Baker.

The Bulldogs made a good drive in the second quarter but were stopped after pressing deep into Baker terri-tory. Again in the fourth quarter the McPherson team showed some good offense. In this second drive the best ground-gainers were Lichty and Anderson: some passes from Lichty in Evans also gained for the Bulldogs. The drive ended on the 16-yard line when the final gun stop-ped the Bulldogs.

The Bulldogs failed to play heads-up football at Baldwin Friday and as a result several passes went sailing by them to Wildcat receivers for good gains. Baker gained only 20 yards more from scrimmage, but in doing this they scored 20 points. Baker's passes helped considerably in the scoring.

That game with Baker is over, but the work of the Bulldog backfield in the close of the game looked great. This quartet was composed of Lichty. Walstrom, Anderson, and Blume. The line was also working nicely and it was this bunch that gained consis-tently In the last quarter of the game.

Ottawa won the Kansas Confer-ence championship Friday night by defeating the Bethany College Swedes, 19-7 That gave the Braves a perfect record in conference compe-tition with 4 victories and no defeats. Until the Bethany game the Ottawa team had not been scored against by a conference aggregation

Also. until that same game the Swedes had not scored: thus a rec-cord was broken for each team.

The Swede- Bulldog battle comes Thanksgiving Dat, and what a bat-tle it should be! With the steady improvement of the Swedes and the srailntll weakening of the Bulldogs it looks as if the Swedes have the advantage

The Swedes looked exceptionally good against Ottawa last Friday, Bethany has been noted for its de-fense during the entire season, but It has developed an offense now that seems to be effective. Hartshorne and Anderson play great defensive ball for the Swedes—

Some time ago the Swedes made the statement that they didn’t care If they lost every game up to the Iast one and they were going to win it. Well, they have lost every game up to the last one and they haven’t won it yet. If the Bulldogs play as they are capable of playing the Swedes will also lose the last one




Last Wednesday afternoon Replo-gle’s basketball team increased its standing in the intra-mural basket-ball tournament by smothering Samuel Stoner's team by a 6-30 score. At the halt Replogle's men led 10-2, Taylor scored 12 points for high hon-ors in this game. Follmer was next with 10, then came Brubaker with S. Suttle and Replogle with the above men made up the personnel of the victorious team. Stoner scored all of his teams 6 points, his lineup con-sisting of Lindholm, Hughey, Frantz, and Rhoades.

On Monday the the Stoner aggre-gation was again the victim. This time the Meyers men won from them by a score of 11-30 The score at half time was 6-188. Meyers scored 12 points for his team. Whitcher S. Sink 6 Brammel 2. Pote 2. Booz was the only scoreless member of Meyers team. Stoner was responsible for 10 of his team's points and Hughey accounted for the other one. Brooks, Rhoades, and Frantz were the other members of Stoner's team

At 3:30 of the same day Austin’s team upheld its so far perfect record by beating Kraus's team Austin was highpoint mans with a total of 21. The rest of his team consisted of Tice with 10 points. Johansen with 4, and Nettleton, Sherfy. Webb. and Friesen, Kraus was runner up for high point honors with 12.

Yoders' team climbed to a second place rating at 4:30 Monday by downing Replogle's team by a 36-20 count Replogle's team maintained the lead throughout the first quarter which ended 4-0 for the losers. Then Captain Yoder and Larsen entered the contest and the first half ended 14-5 for Yoder's team. Yoder was high point man of this game chalk-ing up a total of 18, Custer was next with 12.

McPherson Has Not Won From Rivals for Many Years

Tomorrow afternoon the Bulldogs will tangle with the Terrible Swedes at Lindsborg in the annual Thanks-giving Day grudge battle of these two schools.

Dope in this game never means anything, but what dope there is available seem to indicate that these two teams are fairly even. Early in the season the Bulldogs were con-

sidered the stronger team. but the Swedes have improved very much until last week the Bethany team scored 7 points against Ottawa while the champion scored 15. McPher-son was unable to score against this same team while the Braves scored 18 points, Late season dope seems

to give the Swedes a sight advan-tage. Bethany a great defensive team while the Bulldogs appear to be the better on the offensive.

Past history shows that the Swedes have won many more games than the Bulldogs. Back in 1923 was the last time that a Bulldog team has won over their ancient rivals, Last year's game ended in a scoreless tie. Regardless of previous games, each team considers it a successful season If they can win from the other.

Captain George Zinn and Loren Rock, senior members of the foot-ball squad will be playing their last game for McPherson Collage. Bulldog supporters realize that the local team has the best chance to win that they have bad for a number of years and are expecting then to win from their enemy in the north.

in the dope that possibly could have happened. Stoner, the underdog, eat Austin the so far undefeated leaders of the conference, by a one point margin in a defensive game -9. The score was tied at 2-2 at the first quarter and at half time Sto-ner's aggregation led 4-5. Stoner scored 5 points for his team. Sweet-land and Lindholm each made 2. Williams succeeded In holding Attain to 2 points and Hughey also aid-ed In bolding down the total of the other team.
