To Thee. O God, we pray for strength to meet The strains and stresses we confront today:

Amid the turmoil keep our spirits sweet:

Above all else. we for Thy guidance pray.

We ask not for the fickle crowd’s acclaim But for the challenge that awakes the soul;

Not brief possession of illgotten gain

But for the poise that come* with self-control.

We ask that we may serve thee as Thou art:

Great God of mercy, lore, and gentleness,

May these become our qualities of heart.

And selfish seeking change to kindliness.

God. let use serve Thee, the one way we can— By humble service to our fellow man.

\    —Ward Williams. '33.




At a class meeting last Thursday, the sophomores elected John Goering as president. Other officers were us follows: Faithe Ketterman. vice-president; Alice Hedge, secretary; Gladys Riddell, treasurer, and Waller Pauls and Jo Wagoner, student council representatives.

A Christian knows that the highest form of helpfulness consists In giving out values greater than money. In prayer and the practical rendering of moral Influence each one may minister to health and happiness by cultivating the manly quail-ties of human character.

Norman Thomas says we Americans have come to think of Truth as a delicate young lady who cannot go out for a walk without a policeman, Truth can take care of itself. Do we believe It? Jesus did.

President Speaks of "Christian Standards for Measuring Success”


Applause and Possessions Unnecces-sary—Should Continue to Create

Last Sunday evening at 8:00 o’clock at the Brethren Church Proa. V. F. Schwalm gave the baccalaureate sermon for the seniors. His sub-ject. "Christian Standards for Measuring Success", was must fitting and pertinent.

Prof. J. A. Blair had charge of the opening devotionals. Miss Fern Lingenfelter played the processional and recessional. The A Capella choir furnished special music.

"Every graduate of this class expects to succeed," began President Schwalm. There are wide differences of opinion among men as to who has succeeded and who has failed. I desire to indicate a few qualities of life without which it can not be said that life Is successful, measured-from a Christian standpoint.

"First, popular applause or papular approval is not on itself un adequate measure of Success. Life is easier and more pleasant when It Is so. and the approval of the public Is desirable In a democracy. It is easier

to promote great causes with the

good will of men than against their desires. Certainly the good will and approval of good men and women Is a better guarantee to success than their ill will. And while Jesus indicated that men were blessed when they were reproached and persecuted the fact of reproach and persecution Is not in Itself a guarantee of rectitude or divine approbation. Our persecutions may come from our perversity and selfishness rather than that we have too strenuously contended for the cause of Christ. While public approval Is pleasant and desirable, popular applause should not he bought at too great a price. Jesus certainly taught that there are loyalties that transcend this loyalty and he that violates his conscience and disregards his convictions sells his soul and brings woe on himself. ‘Woe unto you when all men speak well unto you. for in the same manner did their fathers’ to the false prophets’.

"Second, the getting of possessions or wealth Is not a Christian standard

Alumnus Tells How to Make College Life Best

The McPherson College Christian Endeavor's last program of the present school year, was a vesper service held on the lawn northwest of the library. Mary Miller was chairman of the service. Lola Richwine conducted devotions. Clarence Sink and Edith Bechtelheimer read two devotional poems. The main part of the evening's program was a talk by Ethel Sherfy. Class of '32. who talked on making college life the best possible life.

June McIlnay, Wayne Carr and Galen Ogden sang a beautiful trio. Warner Nettleton led the group in opening and closing songs.


"Progress and Promise", the pa-geant presented by the seniors last evening. May 31, at 8:00 o’clock in the Brethren Church was welcomed by a large and attentive audience. It was a clear and beautiful relation and dramatization of events In the history of McPherson College, with over sixty in the cast.

Colored lights and a spotlight thrown on the stage and the characters as they appeared gave a beautiful effect. The choir loft which was decorated In blue was the platform where the Spirit of Christian Education and Truth and Light, her aides, made their appearance. The prairie Invited pioneers to settle In her domain and they In turn called for Christian Education If they were to live there.

The Church pledged her support to a college which was to he established on the prairie. After many offers. McPherson was chosen to be the host for McPherson College. Buildings appeared and gave their history. For a while Doubt hovered about the institution but was driven away by the support of additional states. Children came inquiring about what McPherson College had to offer them. The Spirit of Alumni called many of her people as a testimonial of what had been done for youth and a voice of prophecy told what could be done for future students. Doubt suddenly became Victory and two heralds drew the curtain which revealed a picture of the future McPherson College. The A Capella Choir closed the pageant, by singing and then humming the college hymn which was written by Ethel Sherfy.

Many people besides seniors aided in the presentation of this produc-•Continued on Page two

As the year drawn to a close It becomes evident that many have contributed to the Spectator and made its publication possible,

The assistants and reporters have been invaluable. Their work of the year has been faithful and well-done. With little thanks or recogni-tion they have accomplished monotonous tasks. Outside of the regular staff on unusually large number of students have written willingly for the Spectator. At all times the president, faculty, linotype operator, and students have given cooperation, valuable assistance, and advice.

In the last Issue of this year a heart felt and appreciative "thank you” Is offered to the many who have helped In the publication of the Spectator for 1932-’33.


Most of the activities on the campus have a direct contact with the student body. This Is true of the Thespian Club, the M Club, the W. A. A., the Spectator staff, and the Quadrangle staff. These organizations work directly with various parts of the student body.

With the Student Council this Is not true. This vital organization of student government works in the background and makes contact with student groups only Indirectly. The council, however, has a central control over most of the student activities on the campus.

Many students may complain that this year the organization has been Ineffective and has failed to sponsor all the activities previously conducted by the council. The organization has been faced with small revenues and a mounting deficit and the reduced expenditures of this year follow as a necessary consequence.

May the Student Council, restricted by necessity this year, find it possible to sponsor necessary student activities next year.


The senior of '33 will soon embark upon a career so different from college life that his outlook will be greatly changed. His view and perspective will probably be lessened for awhile at least. The ideals of college life may seem. too remote and too for removed from practical life to be of value. The values which he has set upon as the cornerstones of his future life may be quickly undermined in his flood of daily experiences.

The senior, will have to adjust and reorganize his outlook; He will have to remain calm and keep his vision clear until he can understand life. The man of the slums who has never seen the Inside of a school house may know far more about-the realities of life than the college graduate. The college graduate, however, has the ability to reorganise and adjust while keeping a view on life's values. The viewpoints gained In college should not be lost sight of.

The graduate should not feel sad the he is leaving college. Rather It should come to him as a challenge to face the so-called hard realities of life.

The financial standing of the student council, after a year In which expenses have been pared to the low-est possible piano, consistent with the demands of the various-activities; is quite satisfactory. It has been the council's policy throughout the school year to watch every dollar and not spend a cent needlessly. The council has not been overactive in social affairs and has this saved money, also clarifying their stand that social functions should be carried on by other, organisations on the campus.

Dun to the decrease In enrollment, the athletic department suffered be-cause the council was unable to turn over as much for student admission as la former years, even though efforts were made to keep the percentage the same.

The reorganisation of the state debate tournament contributed a great deal In helping the students save money. Expenses for debate were al most cut in half of what they were last year.

Splendid cooperation from the music and dramatic departments aided In helping finance their, active pro-grams.

The decision to postpone the edition of the Quadrangle undoubtedly was wise and saved the student council from a huge deficit, instead the council, has- been able to com-pletely pay. the debt of $113.50 Incurred by last year’s Quadrangle and in addition has been able to lay aside a surplus of between $50 and $75 as a subsidy for next year's edition providing expenses during the summer do not ran too high.

or succors. Jesus probably would approve the holding of private property today. He taught, however, that property should be made not the end of life, but- rather the means of life. "A man's life consistent not in the number of things he possesseth”. Moreover Jesus- taught that there was a subtle danger to the man who sets his heart to get wealth; which makes It next to impossible for him to become a member of the Kingdom of God.

He that sets his heart, on the get ting of wealth finds the process at Interesting, becomes so obsessed with The power that wealth brings, and so delighted with., the things that it buys, that gradually it numbs his spiritual sense deadens his conscien-tious scruples and leaves him with nothing but his wealth. Wealth as a means of life is good: Wealth at an end In life leaves one with the taste of ashes In his mouth.

-A third - Christian: standard of success is whether our activities and interests give continuous. Inner sat-isfaction. Jesus does not deny the right of happiness,. but it is not a Punch and Judy sort of giddy hilar-ity It- is rather- a. sort of spiritual

well being, a satisfaction that is con-tinuous. So many of life's pleasures are transient, thrilling today, leaving one with a dull headache tomorrow. Any measure of worthwhile thing's In life must be whether ornot they give continuous inner satis- faction, continuous not only during our youth; but to the end-of -life

"A fourth Christian standard of success is living progressively creative toward ever-receding goals. St. Paul's life way that way. There was an upreach and a forward stretch in Paul's life which apparently never relaxed. One of the most Interesting observations of one's life as one. grows older Is the unequal way In which, men run In the race of life. Some start early and mature young, produce in their twenty or thirties, pass from the scene of action and are heard of no more. Others grow up, are full of aspirations and Inspirations In their twenties, cool off In their, thirties and die in their, forties and are heard, of no more. There are still others who begin a life of ac-tiveness and usefulness usually nottoo early. They mature In their twenties or thirties, are going: strong In their forties or fifties and keep on creatively producing In their, chosen field until the setting .of life’s sun. Such a. man was Paul. Such a man was Gladstone. Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Thomas A. Edison and others. One of the most curious and Interesting questions of life Is, how. ran a man keep something of. the aspirations. ardor, enthusiasm and creativeness of youth as he goes past the meridian of life. In marching toward the netting of life's sun. There are many Instances on. every hand where men. who through lack of ap-plication or because they early closed their minds to new truth, or because they disobeyed the higher light in their own lives, or because they loved the creature comforts of earth too much, and still others because of voluptious living have died as far as creative achievement Is concerned. We- must needs love the highest when we see it and be loyal to the finest Idealism of our lives'.

•'Another test Is the test of social responsibility. The man or woman who lives through life without any sense of his obligation, to his fellow-men Is a failure. The school that graduates students and leaves, them without a sense of social obligation for world betterment Is not giving them a Christian education, and the man or woman, who does not find himself of service to his fellowen is falling In a very Important function in his life,

These then are some of the tests I would apply to life to determine whether or not it has been successful. Let us hope that. when. all. of us finally approach our Maker, to render may face the Great Judge of the up to Him our stewardship., that we earth with confidence and hope be-. cause we have been, faithful to the trust which ho has committed to us.”

An event of the year socially was the leap year party. Girls learned then how it feels to ask for a date and then maybe he turned down.

The debaters made a trip to Winfield when a good time was had by all.

The costumes alone were enough to hold anyone's interest. And that painting of a Greater McPherson College was enough to give us our mon-ey's worth.

Them were several things we missed this’ year: among them a Quadrangle, open house at the dorms, an all school picnic, tall basketball players, more announcements of engagements, senior play, fresh-man-senior kid party, and informal school socials.

But some things with which we were pleasantly presented were: Easter vacation, senior pageant, Swede victory, several plays, the amorous freshmen, marriage of a professor, few graduating letter-men. leap year party.

The Thespian Club has received word that In 1930 they incurred a bill at a certain drug store by the purchase of six cigars. Since there Is seldom any smoking In the McPherson College plays, not a few dramatic members wonder about the why-fore.

lations Club has no cabinet for next years There were so few present at

the last meeting that they adjourned and went over to Dr. Bright’s to eat ice cream instead of electing officers.

What a let down In the library the last, two days. During, the early, part of the week it was necessary to tap a person on the shoulder three times before one could gain his attention. The library was full and everyone went Into a trance to study. Now the building is practically deserted and those who Inhabit It seem to wander about aimlessly or read only the newspapers.

These people who like to rise so early! Imagine all those girls on the Y. W. cabinet getting up at 5:00 o'clock. Friday in order, to go on a breakfast! And It wasn't so very many weeks ago that the Thespian Club hold Its initiation at 5:00 In the morning at a frosty breakfast.

Miss Lehman used to make the German students give their excuses for being late In German ns a punishment. Excuses got so trite that, she decided to take the suggestion that all tardy ones sing the German song "Die Lorelei”. They have had several quartets.

Last weak the child-welfare class met several floors above their regular room. So when two stragglers could not find the group they went down the hall calling, "Child Welfare!” Needless to say. Miss McIlrath soon helped them to their destination.

For a week now It has seemed as If the end of school were in view. It began when old grads and trunks In the hall began to appear.

Possibly we should forget for a moment that the end of school has arrived or we are apt to become sloppily sentimental. Shall we speak of something else?

Did someone mention that the senior pageant of last night was original? It was absolutely unique! In fact we could spill superlatives all down the page and not half express

How sad! The International Re

Second year: Austin and Kelly.

First year: Tice.

Intramural sport champs were an nounced. The winner of class B was Johansen’s team, coached by Yoder. Class A’s winner was H. Replogle’s squad, which was coached by Zinn.

It Is Interesting to note that four men received letters In the three major sports. They were: Reinecker Wiggins, and Pauls, sophomores and Chet Johnston, freshman. Last year Wiggins was the only man to receive this honor. Only one latter-man In football and one In basket hall are graduating this year. They arc the captains. Zinn and Rock.

proached the promised land of oar Junior year In which we hoped to roam unmolested by requireds and upperclassmen.

As Juniors we tried to meet further responsibilities. 1931-’32 found more of our members In responsible positions than before, while others won distinction for themselves and the school In other ways. Debate and oratory, music, scholarship, religious organizations, dramatics, track and tennis. Our two famous debaters brought the school a silver cup from the Winfield Tournament. Our an nual sneak, which happened In the rain, and our Junior-Senior banquet In an oriental garden were the biggest social events of the year. Charles Austin guided us safely to our fourth year.

With Vernon Rhoades as president, Lloyd Larson as Vice-Presi dent, Loren Rock secretary, and Delbert Kelly treasurer we entered our final college year, looking forward to still greater achievements and tipping to continue to grow In the fourfold life fostered by M. C. Each of us had some responsibility In the life of the school, be it direct or Indirect. Among our number are to be found orators, actors, preachers, musicians, athletes, housewives, school teachers and many would bo school teachers. We have not all waited until after graduation to begin work for some have been teaching, preaching or housekeeping this year. Our gift for Arbor day consisted of two young Chinese elms and four pfitzer Junipers.

We now must close behind us the doors of this Institution and face forward to find our niche In this busy world of affairs. We look to the future for a greater and a larger vision In which the Ideals of service, fellowship and love shin ever brighter and brighter. We are proud to be another generation of students who have been fortunate enough to be under the Influence of the School of Quality and pray for the strength and the power to live up to the Ideals set forth to us by our Alma Mater.

Coach and Mrs. Melvin J. Binford entertained at their homo last night the Senior athletic boys and their girl friends. The name given this affair was a Hodge Podge Party. Each person won as many colors as possible and the effect produced much merriment.

A treasure hunt over the campus finally terminated In a two course supper consisting of sandwiches, the kind you fix yourself, pickles and Iced tea and strawberry sundae and angel food cake.    

Those present were George Zinn Margaret Oliver, Milton Early, Faithe Ketterman, Raymond Buskirk. Elsie Rump. Ward Williams, Ruth Hobart, Lilburn Gottmann. Grace Heckman, Loren Rock, Lola Hawkins, Delbert Kelly, Pearl Walker, Charles Austin and Grace Lerew.

By Grace Heckman

Initiated as 101 green Freshmen Into McPherson College In the fall of 1929, we, the Seniors, have split our pods are ready to find our places In the wide. wide world. Many and varied accidents and otherwise have happened to us during these four years, but 14 of the original class have weathered the storms together. It Is also interesting to note that eleven of our members have embarked upon the sea of matrimony to try their skill In one of the great ad-ventures of life.

The upperclassmen compelled us when Freshmen to wear our little red and white caps. Eton the girls wore red sailor caps until no one seemed to notice them. Under the leadership of Blanch Harris the class was soon brought In to the spirit of the School of Quality. The Senior-Freshman kid party helped us to be at ease after seeing how childish the Seniors could act. Our first year was Interesting and fruitful with Freshman participation in many school activities In a largo way. Ward Williams made the varsity debatee team. Lucille Crabb was the first woman to win In the State Peace Oratorical contest. The effectiveness of our group was felt throughout the school, even though we lost the foot--ball game to the sophomores. When the Juniors and Seniors both sneaked on the same day, most of us decided It was worthless to, remain, so we cut classes loo. In spite of our blunders wo had hidden potentialities. We were eager to grow and draw out those potent threads of life that were than concealed.

Eber Tice proved to be a capable leader during our Sophomore year. A class picnic to Coronado Heights was the outstanding event of our second year. Again we furnished a winner In a state oratorical contest. One member served his second year as a varsity debater, both quartets contained members of the class of ’33. one headed the College C. E. and one was business manager of the Quadrangle. Confidently wo ap


Eighty-One Per Cent of All Men Students Participate in Sports

Last spring an article appeared In the Spectator which mild that the biggest year In Intramural athletics at McPherson College was coming to a close. This year Coach Melvin J. Binford has increased the number of men participating In sports to eighty-one per cent of the total men students enrolled.

McPherson's Intramural system Is outstanding In that it puts a high percentage of the young men In some physical training exercise under the direction of Coach Binford. It Is thought that the percentage of participants In some form of athletics here Is as high as that of any Institution In the state.

Physical training classes were placed In the intramular games and credit for physical education was earned by participating In these games. An intramural basketball league was started in October and a single round robin was played with two teams tying for the championship. After Coach Binford started varsity basketball, another Intramural league was formed. This time an A and a B league wns made with four teams In each. The final game In each league decided the championship. An Intramural free throw contest was hold with 69 men entered. This spring an Intramural tennis tournament was held with 32 men participating.

The physical education program has been growing the last few years and now It Is possible to get a B. S. degree In physical education at McPherson College, Prospect look good for an even greater number in the rapidly progressing physical education department at McPherson Col-lege.


“Bud” Selves May Take Up Duties During Football

It has been decided that McPherson College will have an assistant coach during football season next fall. This was passed at a recent board meeting and some action has been taken since the meeting.

At the present time it seems very probable that this assignment will be Lester K. (Bud) Selves. Selves Is graduate of the College of Emporia where he starred In football and track. Solves assisted Coach Binford during the 1931 campaign and aided materially with the team. He Is very popular over the state and Is considered us a good football coach.

The executive hoard is working to get some other Job for him besides his coaching duties. Solves Is well known In the city and it Is the general opinion of many that, with the fine prospects for next year, the Bin-ford-Selves combination will put out a winning team next fall.

Brrr. Ring! Snore! Time to get up. blank blank. "Hey Bunkie it's your turn to rake hash: and no more of your . . . . " There Is a clatter of skillets. "Hey mug how do you want your hen fruit?” And the reply Is mumbled from the bed: "Adam and Eve on a load of hay with their eyes blindfolded." And by way of explanation, dear reader. this isn't a Bible story, It Is a pair of eggs on a hunk of toast.

"Hey quit cleaning your too nails with my razor, I gotta shave after breakfast." The roommate sits down to breakfast and the conservation continues: "Say the next time you go to the dorm bring buck one of those hunks of pie to hold the coffee pot down; this coffee Is strong enough to walk off alone and such toast! What do you think my stomach Is—an are lamp—tossing carbon In It all the time.”

‘There goes that - rhetoric

whistle and we haven’t had time to put those beans to soak, only fools and rhetoric Profs have eight o’clock classes.’'

And so to dinner. There’s beans add spinach. "Now eat, your fool heads off. and fellows this will warm your heart. Wo are going to have a little variety for supper, spinach and beans. What’s the idea, that's the second time you've turned that plate over. I think you had better wash It the next time or you will get Hess-itis.

Yo! Ho! Boys Its supper time. Drag out the 3.2. Eat, drink and be merry for next week wo die: It’s the week of final examinations. Boy will be glad when school Is out. I eat enough of your lousy grub. Why that last roast beef we had I thought was a lump of salt until you told me you had salted It slightly. If we keep this up for throe more years, we will make a good wife for a good hard working truck driver. Wo recall a few putrid remarks that Sherman made concerning war which leads us to wonder If Sherman ever batched with my roommate.
