Bulldogs Advance Ball to Twenty-

Five Yard Line at Start of Game

Ottawa University undefeated leaders in the Kansas Conference strengthened its held on first place in the league by defeating the McPherson College Bulldogs here last Friday afternoon by a score of 18-0.'

Except for a few minutes at the start of the game, the Bulldogs were outcharged, outgained, and com-pletely outplayed by the heavy Ottawa, team. The Braves accounted for two touchdowns in the second period and another in the last period. None of the extra point tries were successful.

The first quarter was fairly even with both teams making some nice gains. The Bulldogs advanced the ball Into Ottawa territory, but lost the ball on down, on the Ottawa twenty-five yard line. Toward the last of the first quarter the Braves begun a sustained march that pushed the Bulldogs back into their own territory.

The beginning of the second quar-ter saw the Braves continuing with this drive with Gray and Knapper carrying the ball 4 and 5 yards at a time. Gray got loose through the line for a gain of twent-yards that put the ball in scoring position. Gray carried the ball over for the first touchdown, Ottawa scored again in this quarter on a bad break for the Bulldogs. With the wind against them, the Bulldogs could not gain ground, and punts also failed to gain. Standing in the shadow of his own goal, Wiggins attempted to punt, but fumbled and Ottawa re-covered on the McPherson 4-yard line. The line held for three plays, but on the fourth a pass from Knap-per to Mattis was complete over the goal line.

At the beginning of the second half McPherson played better football and held the Braves In their tracks. The McPherson backfield showed a little power and gained a few yards. The pursing combination front Knapper to Mattis was going good and two passes put the ball in scoring position and in the last quar ter Knapper hit the McPherson line far the third touchdown.

For. the past several weeks since

''the dramatic art class has been prac-ticing the play "Nine to six." posters very attractively advertising the play have been displayed on the bulletin board in Sharp Hall and in the library. Several have been put up down town this week. The posters which have been designed to catch and hold the eye were made by Marjorie Barber, Clarice Evans, and Helen Webber. Each individual poster displayed hero has taken an average of five hours of the artist's time, En-, thusiasm raised by this advertising will draw a large crowd.


The college library is eager to secure either by loan or gift "Phy-siology" by Kimber and Gray. for use on the reserve shelves. Anyone who knows anything about such a book which is available should see Miss Heckethorn.

Baker Has Strong Team With Very Good Record for This Season


Local Team Is Expected to Make Better Showing Than They Did Last Week

Next Friday the Bulldogs will tan-gle with the Baker University Wild-cats at Baldwin in a Kansas Confer-ence game.

Baker always has a good team and this year has one that has made an exceedingly good record. Last week they defeated the strong William Jewel team in an interstate game played at Kansas City. Baker has a big team that gives promise to last running attack.

In the backfield Hardinger, Wild-cat fullback, has been featuring the

offensive play of the Baker team. He is big and fast and It Is his line plunging that has gained many yards or Baker the last few years. An other back that has been showing up well for Baker Is Anderson. This man comes from a Kansas City high school and Is considered a very dan-gerous broken field runner. In the Baker line probably the most out standing player is Spear whi work it the center position. He is regard ed as one of the best men at that point In the conference.

Thu Bulldogs are given more than a mere chance In win this game, but Baker has a little more impressive. record than the McPherson team has Ottawa defeated Baker 12-0 and th Bulldogs lost to Ottawa by a score of 18-0 Which would give Baker a six point margin on paper. Earlier in the season. Baker gave the Swedes 7-0 defeat.

The Bulldogs are pulling in a hard week of practice both on of fense and defense because of their rather poor showing against Ottawa Coach Binford expects his men to give a better account of themselves gainst Baker than they did last week against the conference leaders. The team will leave for Baldwin some-time Thursday.

If ever an alumnus remarks that he has been away from his Alma Mater as long that It has little attraction for him anymore, that the students is college are now unfamiliar to him, or that the changes while have taken place make It all seem so different—may he somehow have occasion. to visit the campus for just a few moments. Such brief return would bring Immediate longing to Invade once more the old haunts of his college days. Oh, If only he had time to visit each just once, If only for a moment! Could be be among the beloved crannies, turn hack the pases of time, What A thrill he might experience! He would no longer he that alumnus who standing at the entrance to the campus, feels strangely at home, but lost,

Would he might fling off the experiences of these several years and once again see himself an that freshman gaily mounting the steps of the Ad Building, much in anticipation of the four years at college before him. What matter that enrollment was not complete, an he had expected. in only a few hours? Neither did any particular worry arise to cloud his jubilant spirit when he found himself In the wrong classroom at the right time. To be called "greenie" to wear the eternal head gear of the frosh. to be IMWa and battered-all were cheerily home for one year to make him a correctdly developed upperclassman. And who was the buoyant but timid lad who approached him . for information? Yes indeed. he had fully cast oft any ear-marks of having been last year one of those beginners. What glory he now felt In requesting the underclassmen to do their respective duties! And somehow s Certain little lady appealed appealed to his fancy, and he wondered If — But soon as a Junior he discovered that this thing of college Life was a pretty serious one. Somehow the days had shortened and It was next to impossible to keep up with classes and outside activities, not to mention finding some precious moments to saunter down the railroad tracks with Its certain little lady, or to take her to that lyceum, or Just to sit a while on the steps and discuss the stars.

He believed he was fully aware of what was expected of a college senior, but somehow he did not just fit this conception when his final year begin. Attempts to appear less serious than he truly felt were vain. Life seemed to have a closer grip on him than be had realised. It puzzled him when he lay at night mulling over the incomplete ideas flooding his mind, wondering why he did not sleep, yet trying to decide that one thing was definitely this way or that. Had he chosen the vocation he really was best fitted for? How could he know for sure be might be successful In following It. and would it be fair to her, If she promised to share his success—or failure—with him? The least he could do surely would be to try as a man, and believe that life would bring them their just deserts-—And so the bubble bursts. He finds himself standing at the entrance to the campus, a lump In his throat, vowing to himself as he departs, that at the first opportunity, he shall Indeed steal back to his dear Alma Mater, and carefully retrace every one of these Imaginary steps which have so pleasantly flitted before his memory.—M. C. ‘26.

The days are coming on which make a student spend long

of consideration, trying to decide whether to wear a sweater, a spring coat, or his winter furs. It he wears a heavy coat, the student next to him is sure to have on a light sweater and Insist that all windows be shut tight and radiators turned on as much so possible. Or if be wears a thin wrap the day is apt to turn chilly and he will freeze when crowing the campus. To solve the situation one might wear a robber slicker and sit In the sun if cold and In the shade If warm. Or be might Join the nudist colony where the problem Would not even exist.

When Elrae Carlson dived over five girls to turn a somersault at the W. A. A. program. Saturday, someone said that ha bet she was a plenty good swimmer add diver. No one seemed to be informed as to whether she could even float or not. But It was noticed that she was the only one who went, over five girls, si-though Dorothy Bonham and 0neita Boyer went over four.

Another thing. It was pointed out

that Dorothy Bonham looked Just like a bobbie pin when she was bent In the middle to "make a slim “U" an she did the "worm” walk. At least she got across the stage In n hurry,

The freshman class gave a very clever stunt Saturday night. It was excerpts from Shakespeare’s play— and what excerpts! Fred Nace was especially good as Hamlet, but the characters were all good, so why bother to enumerate and mention their good qualities?

And Leteer Lewis has gone colle-giate! That large fur cost and his yelling at the game Friday surely made him look it!!

The freshmen might be warned that grades are not given out the next Monday morning after the mid-semester has passed. Be patient— two weeks and maybe three isn’t such a long time to wait!

Pep—I'll say Pep! Why the yells were going good at the Homecoming game! The old fight was surely kept up.

Quizzes, quizzes, and more quizz-es! Whoever thought of the Idea of midsemster exams ought to be taken out and tarred and feathered, boiled in oil, or shot at sunrise!

And then there was our history prof who gave a midsemester test and after everyone had worked and worried himself gray-headed, said that the grades were comparatively" unimportant.

Landes, Buckingham, and Kraus were the players for the winners. Kraus scored fourteen points for his team. Landes three, and Sallee two. For the losers Lindholm. Hughey, Stoner. Fasnacht, and Williams were the players. Stoner did most of the scoring for his team with eight: Lindholm was next with three; and Hughey followed with two.

Yesterday at 4:30 Yoder’s basketball team downed Meyer's team in a close game by three points. 21 to 18. Yoder led In the scoring for the victors With a total of twelve. Custer made four. Edwards two, and Larsen three. Early, Heckman, and Mathes were the other players. For the losers Pote was high point man making a total of six, Whitcher was next with five, Meyers made three, and Booz and Sink each made two. Bram-mel and Brooks were the other members of this team.

So far Austin's team is leading with two victories and no defeats. Kraus' team is next with only one game played and they won It. Next comes Replogle and Yoder with one game lost and one game won, Stoner and Meyers are trailing with one game lost and only one game played.

Keith Hayes and his wife, the former Miss Viola Bowser, were among the alumni here for Homecoming.


He was partner In an empire. He was a master of military strategy. He commanded an army of veterans keen for victory. Yet he chose to risk everything on a naval battle and he was not a sailor. At the beginning of the battle he deserted with the flag ship, leaving the improvised navy to certain destruction. On shore the army which had followed him through hard campaigns waited seven days believing In their leader. But he had asserted them also. Why?

Two women were the answer. One was an Egyptian queen, the other a lawful wife. Equal in beauty and honor, they were different in personality. Mark Antony sacrificed Rome under the Influence of one of them. Who has not heard the story of Cleopatra? But how many even know the name of the other woman? Yet she was a Caesar.

Strong ‘personalities have always left their mark In the struggle to civilize the world. Your personality Will show Itself in the progress you make In life. Cultivate your personality. Be a little kinder is everyone than you Just have to be. Have a little more sympathy for those with whom you associate. Feel a gentle interest in everyone and forget yourself. Others will remember.


Many years ago. when Li Hung Chang was an ambassador to this country, he was once the most popular visiting celebrity and the bane of newspaper reporters. How that wjly Chinaman could ask questions! Instead of being the interviewed he became the interviewer. Reports of conversations with him usually amounted to nothing but the reporters' his penetrating questions concerning American manners, cus-toms and opinions. By the simple expedient of asking-questions Instead of ventilating his personal opinions, he avoided the pitfalls Into which a less cautious talker would have been dragged; and by the name device he learned those things he most needed to know.

Intelligent curiosity is a characteristic of a vigorous Intellect. The stupid one is never Inquisitive, The man who ceases to ask questions, ceases to learn, and a lack of Intellectual curiosity is a alien or mental stagnation.

Thera la much wisdom In Li Hung Chang’s plan. Perhaps one of the easiest ways to acquire a reputation for being a profound thinker is to cultivate the art of being a good listener. Most people like to talk, they are flattered by being Invited to tell what they know or think about Just say old thing, and if you will let the other fellow do most of the talking' he will speedily come to the conclusion that you are an extraordinarily Intelligent person incidently, you may gain considerable knowledge.; Your company will be eagerly sought after by those who have something to say. or feel that they must say something. You may even be invited to, dinners and banquets. At any rate, It is well to keep still and let the other fellow talk occasionally; one cannot learn much by listening to oneself all the time —Selected.

'On count one they, stopped forward in unison; on count two the girls In the middle turned back to back, while two others lay down on the floor; at count three, two girls went up on the knees at the center ones, while two others slowly straightened out their bodies as they balanced on the feel of the girls on the floor. Silence while they held it! Then—unk! (“Unk" In plain English stands for a grunt.) No one would have known where the "unk" came from If, when they got back In place, Agnes Bean’s face bad not been so rosy and she bad not tried to hide behind the others. Afterwards, all she would say was "Well, you would grunt, too, If you had Esther Brown's toe boring through your stomach Into your Back."

When we arrived at 1:30 Saturday we thought there was a good-sized crowd for the W. A. A. Home coming Program, but by the time It was half over, we decided there was lot nearly a large enough audience to do Justice to the Intricate dances and tumbling. But we just thought about bow devastated with distress the others would be when they heard about what they had missed.

Can you imagine Miss Heckethorn-s embarrassment she started out one night and got as far as the church before she found that she had changed only one of her shoes!!

We can well believe Brammel Is a good cheerleader and football man combined. At the freshman-sophomore game one could hour him telling the freshmen stars to "keep up the ole fight" as they Used up. and believe us be kept It up all during the battle too.

In all these years we have been In college no one has been able to tell us why there is a sidewalk leading up to just a window at Kline Hall.

The Y. M. C. A, Tuesday presented a program it which the Y. M. student camps and conferences were discussed and evaluated. Following an opening prayer by Paul Heckman. Ward Williams took charge of the program.

Lilburn Gottmann spoke about the Estes Park Y. M.-Y. W. C. A. summer conference. He told of the setting of the camp, the nature of the meetings, and spoke at length about the camp leaders. Everett Fasnacht told of the Christian World Education Conference at Wichita last spring, and of some of the values of the meeting.

Ward Williams reviewed Interest' ing points concerning the ”Y” Officers' Training Conference, and some of the problems discussed there. Dean Replogle closed the meeting with prayer.



States that the Average Man Knows Almost Nothing about Problems

The speaker for the morning's chapel address, Wednesday, November 9, was Earl Bohling. head of the college commerce department.

Professor Bohling's talk was centered around the many economic problems of the day. He discussed supply and demand, especially in relation to the production of wheat, and war debts.

He said that the economic problems are so important that everybody should bear an interest In them. He made the remark that about ninety-five per cent of the people today know as much about economies as a pig does about Aristotle, Bohling be-lieves that if the country's economy was placed above everything else In the minds of men In two years, the economic problems would be solved. What the country needs is an equality of the factors of wealth, nature, labor, and capital Professor Boh-ling advocated stabilization of prices, whether they be high or low. Changing prices always cause havoc.

America wants a favorable balance of trade, meanwhile we advocate the

Members Give Number in Costume for Homecoming Event

A large crowd attended the International Relations Club Homecoming Program Friday evening. November 11. The program was In keeping with Armistice Day. and was very Interesting at well as Instructive.

Elmer Staats, president of the Club, took charge of the evening's proceedings. The program was started by the entire crowd singing "My Country 'Tis of Thee". Amelia Barber very effectively read “The Unknown Soldier” by Zona Gale. An International Tete-a-tete was held. The seven countries participating were represented by, Ward Williams Great Britain, Lilburn Gottman-United States. Gretta Wilma Griffis-France, Margaret Oliver - Italy, Herbert Eby - Japan, Alberta Cornelius - Germany, and Charles Austin -Russia, These nations had a general round of discussion, bickering and sarcasm, but never reached any helpful conclusion until "Youth", played by Alice Hodge, appeared on the scene and gave many new startling Ideas for consideration.

The speakers of the evening were two former students, Miss Lillian Carlson, '32. and Mr. Keith Hayes, 31. Both were varsity debaters. Miss Carlson spoke on “The Present Status of Disarmament". Mr. Hayes gave "The Role of the United States in World Affairs".

After this, the lights were put out, and the crowd had the privilege of seeing the "League of Nations”. Two reels were presented. In which one could get a good Idea of International Proceedings.

Importation of nothing and the Increase of exports. War debts may be settled by any of three methods, namely, gold, service, and goods. Even though this is a depression, there is more money per capita today than ever before.

The main object of the speech was to arouse Interest in the multitude of economic problems for which there is a need of sound economists, a field open to college people.

Decisions which are inadequate are often reached through allowing 'prejudice, tradition, fashion, or Impulse to have full sway. Our decisions should be governed by principles and not rules. Four great principles that could well be followed with profit are "love your neighbor as yourself'; look into the future, consider it: do that which will best serve your fellow man; and do the Will of God. Martha Hursh and Pearl Walker brought out these points In their talks this morning In Y. W. C. A. on the subject "How can we know we are right?" Devo-tions were ted by Alice Egbert, Elizabeth and Jo Wagoner sang a duet.

Next week the Cosmos Club will present a play to the Y. W. C. A. Everyone should be present on time.


Says that Man Goes through Any Hardship to Excel

The Reverend Mr. L H. Sweetland from the Methodist Church was the chapel speaker Monday, November 14. His topic was "This Way Up".

Man Is never content Just to enjoy the pleasant and easy things of life, but his ambition Is constantly urging him to conquer new realms. He refuses to he outdone by any creatures; so he spends his time going through hardships and difficulties In order to excel.

Man’s chief glory lies in seeing the possible achievements In the challenges of the spiritual world.

The Reverend Mr. Sweetland concluded his talk by saying that In his opinion the present younger generation is facing a more serious problem than any other generation In the history of the race has ever faced.

Willie Follmer____ Nov. 22

Yob know this week they are going to Baldwin to play Baker. Baldwin isn't much of a city. but they stop at big places like Emporia. Ottawa. or better yet maybe they will go around by Topeka and Lawrence. I would so window shopping at some of those places, and look at some of the new dresses and hats. No that wouldn't be right. Boys don't look at dresses and hats I suppose—they always go Into those five and ten cents stores and talk with the store girls—silly things. They say Lichty is acquainted with some girls In Topeka, and when the squad stopped there en route to Atchison, he called on every one of them.

I wonder what the Profs do that accompany the boys on their trips.

I Imagine they forget their dignity as soon as they get away. At least Rep would. I'll "bet Coach has to watch him as much on he does the boys. Why I heard that Coach caught him coming Into his room at 2:30 In the morning when the boys were In Oklahoma City. And did you hear that Fries was taken for a member of our coaching staff by the Oklahoma people? I'll bet Fries was so tickled over that, that he gave them a quarter.

They say Eddy was so much Impressed with a little waitress In Perry, Oklahoma, that be wanted to bring her home with him—he would I don't see why they just mentioned Eddy. There were probably some others who saw girls they fell for, too. I wouldn't do that If I were a boy.

Did you notice that the Loises (Lackey and Edwards) and Lola Hawkins received letters from their boy friends, when they were away?

I wish there was some boy on the squad who would write to me when be was away on a football trip. I know one boy on the squad who I think is pretty nice, but I’m not going to toll who he Is. And any, did you know Edith Bechtelheimer received a telegram from Oklahoma City when the boys were there? Wasn't that keen! Of course you know who sent it.

Why it's after ten o'clock. The time seems to go so fast when you are talking about—well you know.

Students Tall of Systems Used in Foreign Countries to Control Liquor Traffic

The College Christian Endeavor had a worthwhile program Sunday night on the subject of prohibition.

The American system of prohibition was compared with the methods used by other nations that have attempted to control the liquor traffic.

Carrol Whitcher discussed the attempt made by Sweden to control the consumption of liquor by limiting the amount which each citizen could use. He pointed out, that, although this method greatly decreased the amount consumed, It fell far short of stopping the liquor traffic.

Ruth Deardorff talked on Canada's system of government control. She told of the failure of this plan to meet the need of the people and stated that Canada's prevent system is certain to be supplanted by federal prohibition.

David Duncanson told of the conditions in the U. S. before prohibition, He attacked conclusively several of the present arguments of the wets.

The last talk was made by LaVere Flora who gave a brief history of the prohibition movement In the U. S. and pointed out the Industrial, social. and political improvements which have resulted from the passage of the Eighteenth Amendment.

Hobart Hughey was in charge of the meeting. A baritone solo by Casey Voran was a feature of the program.

Third Quarter


Underclassmen May Put Away Caps After Thanksgiving

The Freshman football team won a hard-fought game from the Sophomore eleven by a score 13-6 Saturday, November 12. The event was part of the annual Homecoming program. and by their winning, the Freshmen secured the right to remove their green caps and berets permanently at Thanksgiving, after the Bulldog-Swede game.

Kenneth Moore, Sophomore captain and quarterback, was the outstanding player of the field.. He was not only captain and quarterback—-he it was who carried, passed, and kicked the ball for the Sophomores —-and It was Moore who so effectively stopped the Freshman ball-luggers —when they were stopped: Gordon Kraus, playing at half-back position, carried the ball some and made the Sophomore touchdown when he caught a pass from Moore In the second quarter.

Custer, diminutive Freshman halfback, made most of the scrimmage gains for the Freshman team. He also made some beautiful kicks for his team. Edwards, husky Freshman half, carried the ball for several good plays, also. Other Freshmen backfield players were Price Brubaker, captain, who did a good Job of backing tip the line, and Ralph Buckingham, quarterback, who called the plays that won the game.

The Freshmen made their first touchdown in the first quarter when Myers, left end, circled through behind his backfield, took the hall from Custer on a fake play, and ran twen-y-five yards to the goal line. Edwards curried the ball across the line for the extra point.

The second touchdown was made in the third quarter, when Custer no a wide play succeeded in getting the ball over the goal line. Buckingham failed in his attempt to carry the ball for the extra point.

The Freshmen played a good game, and their players showed more experience In the game than most of the Sophomore players. The Freshman line held well in nearly all plays, and the backfield did excellent blocking. Loren Rock, Senior, coached the Freshmen.

The Bulldogs failed to show the the strength against Ottawa that everybody expected them to exhibit. In fact they did not play the game as they have in a few others. Except for a few minutes at the start of the game, the Bulldogs were swept off their feet.

If both teams had not been offside when the Bulldogs pulled their first play, things might have been different if each play following that particular one had gained as that one did. and the first play had counted, the Bulldogs would have had a tuch-down plus six extra yards before they lost possession of the ball. However, that doesn't mean anything.

The McPherson line was ontcharg-ed in the Ottawa game. Time after time large holes were made for the Ottawa backs and they made use of these big openings, Their off-tackle  smashes seemed to be their best play  for gaining ground.    

Knapper, the Braves’ captain and greatly publicized man played a good game, but he should not have credit for all the good playing at McPher-son. The Ottawa lino did splendid work In making a place for the backfield to go and Mattis. at end did some nice receiving of passes. Gray in the Ottawa backfield is a hard line plunger, and gained many yards against the Bulldogs.

Practically all the newspapers gave Knapper credit for all three of Ottawa's touchdowns against. Mc-Pherson but he actually made only one of them. Gray scored the first one on a line plunge, a pass from Knapper accounted for the second out and Knappcr dived over the Bulldog line for the third touch-


The Bulldogs are expected to make

a better showing against Baker and

Richards, Maxine Ring, and Lola Hawkins; a sailor dance by Grace Lerew, and Elsie Lindholm; baseball song and tap. by Margaret Oliver. Martha Hursh, Marjorie Shank, and Lola Edwards; and a flapper tap by Maude Amelia Barber, Agnes Bean,  and Lois Lackey. Then the freshman girls' gym class gave a tumbling exhibition. which illustrated the type of work the gym classes have been doing this year. Lastly, a group of girls gave a number of pyramids which had been utilized at football games as stunts.

All the numbers were given in appropriate and unusual costumes.

LOST—Keycase and keys lost around campus. Gerald Meyers.— adv

After the Baker game only one remains and it Is the big game with the Terrible Sweden from Bethany. This game is to be played at Lindsborg this year and as usual it will probably be a thriller. The Bulldogs and the Swedes battled to a scoreless tie last year in a blizzard and snow storm.

should play much better football. If they play the game of which they are capable they should turn in a win over the Baldwin school. None of the players have serious Injuries and the team should go at Its best against Baker,

If either team has an advantage as to dope it is Baker. The record of the Wildcats is probably just a little better than that of the Bulldogs. Baker hold Ottawa to 12 points while the Braves were able to score 18 points against the Bulldogs. Baker won from McPherson by a margin of one touchdown hero last year.

Thu Bulldogs are Working hard this week In an effort to get out of the cellar of the conference when they play Baker, Friday, If they get going both on offense end defense, the Bulldogs should leave the Wildcats with the short end of the score.


Dances and Tumbling in Costume Are Well-Liked

In the college chapel at 1:30 on Saturday, a program of dances and tumbling, sponsored by the W. A. A., was given as a Homecoming event.

The program consisted of a military tap by Margaret Schwartz, Ruth Hobart, and Elsie Lindholm; a Polish dance by Agnes Bonn, Edith
