STUDENTS DEMAND “NO MORE WAR” IN PROGRAM
International Relations Club Gives Programs Celebrating Armistice Day
TWO PROGRAMS GIVEN
Peace Pagent Given in Chapel and Armistice Program Held in Church on Sunday
Last week end in the fifteenth celebration of the Armistice which closed the World War, the students of McPherson college asked that there be no more war and that the world be allowed to live in peace.
On Friday the International Relations club gave a peace pageant in the college chapel. Each student in the pageant entered and placed a wreath on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier and then stated the condi-tions surrounding his death and the reasons for his going to war. Those who took part in the program were Carol Koons, Lester Pole, Sam Ston-ar, James Reed, Carol Whitcher and Donald Evans. Each one was supposed to represent a nation fighting in the World war. The pageant was composed by Paul Harris.
Sunday evening the club gave another program in the college church. The program at this time consisted of "Tim Armistice" by James Reed: "Versailles, 1919, " by John Goering: "Present Day Conditions. " by Lester Pote; "Unknown, ” a reading, by Gevene Carlson: a vocal solo by Warner Nettle-ton; "My Ideas for a World Brotherhood. ” by Elmer Staats, and the reading of the Kellogg Pact by Maxine Ring.
INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS SHELF IN THE LIBRARY
So great has been the demand for books relating to international af-fairs, that the college librarian. Miss Margaret Heckethorn, has decided that a special case should be provided in the library for this purpose. While the books were on the reserve shelf many of the students confused them with regular reserve books which are not for regular checking. It is to bo clearly understood that these books are for checking the same as any other book.
With the receipt of six books each semester from the Carnegie Endow-ment for International Peace, the In-ternational Relations books have become quite numerous. It is hoped that students will become interested in these books and cheek them freely.
Also placed on the new book shelf are books dealing with the Christian Endeavor. The regular magazine rack which was formerly located in the study room has been transferred to the reading room.
IN CHAPEL YESTERDAY
The new Presbyterian pastor in McPherson. Rev. T. N. Shellenberger appeared in the chapel program yesterday giving an address upon "Fearless Individualism. " The Rev. Shell-enberger stated that we need men and women of the type that do not fear the future. There are too many selfish people in the world. The really great individual looks at himself as a part of a great system. In closing, he stated that the world needs a new concept of God and the higher things of life.
The local Red Cross representatives appeared in chapel last Monday making the aid of the students in their campaign, and telling of the work of the Red Cross in this city. Each student was asked to give any sum that he felt he could give reasonably.
MODERNIZING CHRISTIANITY IS Y. M. C. A. THEME
Clarence Sink was in charge of last Tuesday's Y. M. meeting which centered around the ability of Christi-anity in satisfying current, major problems and needs in our dally life. Leanord Lowe led the devotionals
Victor Moorman gave a talk on how Christianity aids us In solving such problems as vocational choices. Ideals of friends and ourselves, social adjustments and philosophy of future life.
Clarence Anderson told how Chris-tianity is a growing, developing, unfolding way of living. There are no levels for Christianity. We are to be ever searching for higher and bet-ter ways of living, and not to be satisfied with our present levels. Paul Heckman spoke on how a thorough study of modern principles of Christianity will open one's eyes to its practicability and acceptability as the highest way of life.
"FOLLOW THE GLEAM" IS CANDLE LIGHTING THEME
Annual Affair Is Held In Conducive Atmosphere of College Church
The annual candle-lighting service of the McPherson College Y. W. C. A. was held at the Brethren church last Thursday evening at 6: 30.
After the processional, played by Mrs. Rush Holloway, Miss Della Lehman read "Parsifal the Pure. ” The girls’ trio, consisting of Gulah Hoover. Bernice Dresher, aud Lois Edwards, sang "Faith, Hope, and Love. "
"Gleams we may expect through Life. " was the subject of a short talk given by Mrs. Schwalm. She told what a gleam was, and mentioned the gleams of childhood, early school days, high school days, college, middle life, and old age. The gleams during the earliest part of a girl's life are those of faith and trust. Then there are the gleams of eager expectancy, and finally the gleams of knowing life has been worth while.
Following the presentation of the charge, which occurred at the conclusion of Mrs. Schwalm's speech, the girls lighted their candles from the flame of the larger one held by Gulah Hoover, president of the Y. W., and formed a circle in the center of the church. When all the candles had been lighted, the girls sang "Follow the Gleam. "
The girls filed out, carrying the lighted candles as Mrs. Holloway played the recessional.
The only lights in the church were those of candles placed in the windows and at the altar, and later those held by the girls, who were all dressed in white or very light dresses.
This is an annual event and one of the year's outstanding programs for the Y. W. C. A.
NEW AMENDMENT PROPOSED FOR W. A. A. ORGANIZATION
The W. A. A. amendment has been drawn up concerning the addition of ping pong, roller skating, and bicycling to the list of sports.
It is proposed in ping pong that 25 points should be given for a half hour's practice per week for five consecutive weeks and 10 points for winning the championship of the tournament. Points will be given only once during the year.
To earn points in roller skating, one must skate twelve hours in nine weeks, for which 20 points will be given. No points will be given unless twelve hours are turned in.
For bicycling a point a mile will be given, but each ride must be of at least five miles long. Not more than 100 points may be earned in this event each year.
These amendments have been posted on the bulletin board and will be voted on at the next meeting of the W. A. A.

DATING PROBLEM RECEIVING WIDE ATTENTION ON CAMPUS
Y Organizations and C. E. Have Discussed Problem
The dating problem is being given a thorough airing on the campus these days. It looks as if every stu-dent is interested in, finding some-one else a date, but still he does not want him to get a "steady. " At least that is the way it seems to those follows who have not been dating lately.
A few weeks ago the secretary of the Y. W. C. A., Miss Stella Scur-lock, in a joint session of the Y. M. and Y. W. cabinets urged that the tradition for dating steady on the campus be broken. McPherson college is acquiring a reputation for this, she stated. She also urged that more students date than at present.
Last Sunday evening the question gained new prominence as the college Christian Endeavor held a lively discussion of the topic. Galen Ogden who led the discussion suggested a number of questions on the subject which were then discussed, pro and con, by the students.
An election was held to fill the office of secretary which has been vacant thus far this year. Corrine Suter was chosen to fill this posi-tion. Dean F. A. Replogle was chosen to fill the office of sponsor.
Jo Wagoner led the devotions.
FRIEND SENDS NEW
PUBLICATION TO LIBRARY
"For a limited period, you will receive monthly, a copy of the Chris-tian Endeavor World. A friend made it possible for us to send this to your library and several others and he makes the simple request that you place it in your rack so that it will be available to students and others. " —Excerpt from a letter received by the college library from the business office of the Christian Endeavor World.
The Christian Endeavor World is the official organ of the United Society of Christian Endeavor. The November issue is now on the current magazine rack.
The North Central Association Quarterly is also available at the library now.
COLLEGE DEPUTATION WORK IS GETTING STARTED
Plans for deputation work and a deputation team for McPherson college were discussed at a meeting of the college Christian Endeavor society last Tuesday evening. The program consisted of several numbers which were suggestive of those to be given by the deputation teams.
The first number was given by a quartet consisting of Delvis Brad shaw, Raymond Tice, Wayne Carr and Galen Ogden. After this Wand Hoover led devotionals which was followed by three talks. Leonard Lowe spoke on the "Place of the Bible in our lives. " Theodore Re-gier on "What is a Christian. ” an-Galen Ogden on "Youth and the Church. "
The last part of the program con-sisted of a general discussion upon deputation work.
STUDENTS WILL VISIT NEW SALEM CHURCH
Sunday School Classes Plan Outing November 19 Near Lindsborg
Next Sunday morning at 9: 00 o'clock Miss Della Lehman's mixed junior-senior class, Mrs. Petry's freshman-sophomore girls' class, and Professor Petry's freshman-sopho-more men's class of the college church Sunday School are planning on making a trip to the New Salem Swedish church. These classes will take their dinner and spend part of the afternoon in seeing the noted church.
New Salem church is located 6 miles north of Lindsborg. It con tains an expensive set of chimes and pipe organ, both of which were im-ported. The cost of building this church is estimated to be about $90, 000. 00. The pastor is a native of Sweden and the sermons are if Swedish every first, third, and fifth Sunday in the month and in English on the other Sundays. The student will get in on a Swedish service They will also get a chance to see the collection of antique clock which the pastor has. Dinner will probably be eaten at Coronado Heights, west of Lindsborg.
STUDENT COUNCIL HITS AT DISHONESTY ON THE CAMPUS
While not mentioning any act at the cause of its action, the student council took a vigorous stand against petty thievery and pilfering in other people's rooms. Breaking into the dining hall was also mentioned in the resolution.
The statement as it was issued reads as follows:
The Student Council of McPherson college desires to uphold the name of the college by opposing all dishonest acts around the campus such as taking things that belong to others, breaking into the dining room and pilfering other people's rooms.
SIX GIRLS AWARDED
SOCCER POINTS IN W. A. A
The soccer season in W. A. A. is over and points have been given to the following girls: Ruth Tice, Eliza-beth Bowman, Arlene Wampler, Es-ther Scott, Phyllis Barngrover, and Mary Eisenbise. Soccer was under the management of Arlene Wampler
Practice in volley ball will begin soon, with Elrae Carlson as manager A maximum of 100 points can be earned in this sport.
The duties of the social committee being to plan the social events of the year, it is desirable that they know what plan or plans would be suitable to the majority of the students. Therefore it has been sug-gested that students write out their desires and hand them to Margaret Oliver or Paul Boor. It is desired that the students not be backward about making suggestions, for they will be considered fairly and the social program will be drawn from these suggestions.

COMPULSORY CLASS ATTENDANCE ELIMINATED
(By College News Service)
Berkeley—"More learning and less teaching" will be the policy of the University of California under a new plan adopted this week whereby compulsory class attendance is eliminated.
Announcement of the change in policy with respect to class cuts was made by Professor Joel H. Hildebrand, chairman of the committee on educational policy of the academic senate, who said it would affect both the University of California at Berkeley and at Los Angeles.
He declared that the sole proof of learning under the new plan would be results as reflected by examinations.
The order, however, will not affect classes in military training, physical education and technical subjects, involving laboratory work and field trips. Such students will be required to attend classes as usual.
Professor Hildebrand said that final details of the new policy are now being worked out and that it probably would be placed in effect at the beginning of the next semester.
A representative of student strikers of the University of Puerto Rico this week was scheduled to call on President Franklin D. Roosevelt to lodge a formal complaint against the administration of the university.

The way to build McPherson College is to patronize college boosters.
Last Friday the Bulldogs' hopes for the conference championship faded as they lost a hard fought game to the Ottawa Braves. Supported to a full measure by the student body, the team carried no great regret or ill feeling at having met defeat.
True the supporters of our team would liked to have had the honor of a championship team. They, like the team, hoped for the best and struggled for victory. The team could have played better, perhaps, and suffered some handicaps, but they are looking forward to the remaining football schedule of hard games. The team was not overconfident and has nothing to grieve over the Ottawa same.
Loyal Bulldogs will not mourn the defeat. Instead they will support the school in her every activity to produce a belter school both in her program for athletics and for scholarship with courage and defiance for defeat.

With Homecoming just over and no football games here either last week or this week, things have been pretty quiet for a week.
Our President Speaking - - -
Active participation of youth in politics and government is America's urgent and immediate need, now as never before, Nicholas Roosevelt, cousin of the president and recently retired minister to Hungary, declared re-cently.
"Students of America generally are shirking their duty in the fields of government and political administration, " he said.
"They sit on the side lines and spend their time in condemning the actions of our governmental authorities, but they do not so much as lift a finger toward effecting improvements in, or eliminating corrupt practices from, the objects of their criticism. It is this inertia and passiveness on the part of the majority of college students in connection with affairs of national importance that constitutes one of the country's most difficult troubles today.
"It is rather paradoxical that university students and graduates, the very element to which one would most naturally look for leadership, are the ones who are taking back seats when they are needed most. There is now excellent opportunity for the college graduate, and for that matter, the college student also, to enter active political life. New blood and keen minds are needed to cope with the over-increasing economic and political problems resulting from present chaotic conditions.
"Unless youth, especially the college graduate, is willing to step out and make its presence and influence felt in public life and local politics, we will never get the good government we so much desire. ”
The Kind of Mind the College Should Produce
’’A mind at once discursive enough to seize resemblances, and steady enough lo distinguish differences; a mind eager in search, patient of doubt, fond of meditation, slow to assert, ready to reconsider, careful to dispose and set in order; not carried away either by love of novelty or by admiration of antiquity. and hating every kind of imposture; a mind therefore especially framed for the study and pursuit of truth."
. . . . James Spudding’s paraphrase of Francis Bacon.
“Great Game of Politics” by Frank R. Kent is Also Here
The library has a new novel. It was reported at the college library round table at Wichita that there was an increasing tendency to place fiction in college libraries. Whether or not this is true, the McPherson college library has added "Miss Bishop” by Bess Streeter Aldrich, to its list or fiction.
"The novel resolves itself into the two-fold story of Ella, the teacher, and Ella, the woman. In the former role, wo see her influence diffused through the years over group after group of eager students in the evergrowing Midwestern College. On the other, We see her often pathetic struggle to make real her romantic dreams.
"For above all else Ella has wanted the one man to come her way; she has warned a cozy home and children. Yet after waiting patiently she at least meets and falls in love with this one man only to have him desert her for her Becky Sharp of a cousin. Suffice it to say that as the years pass by a relentless fate pur-sue Miss Bishop, the burdens of two generations fall upon her shoulders, dramatic, and sometimes calamitous happenings threaten to submerge her dauntless spirit. The cheering and triumphant answer which Ella finds to her disillusionments, however, should prove a source of inspiration to all who read her story."
Other books which have been purchased by the library are: "Problems of the Teaching Personnel.” by D. H. Cooke; "Our Children." by the Child Study association of America; "Handicraft For Girls." by E. T. Hamilton; "The Book of Opportunities" by Rutherford Platt; "Physi-ology of Muscular Activity." by E.

The Baker Players club of Baker University has financed the building of a new stage in their auditorium. There are to be no footlights; instead there will be four proscenium lights supplemented by floodlights on either side of the stage.
Pittsburgh Teachers college requires its Homo Economics students to reside nine weeks in the Home Management house before they can secure their degrees. The house work carried on there comes under the course Household Administration. The work is planned to represent duties assigned to manager, hostess, cook, assistant cook, upstairs maid, downstairs maid, and odd-jobs girl.
An Odd-Job bureau for girls has been organised at Washburn college. Anyone in the city who wants a girl for any kind of odd job such as car-ing for children, assisting at parties, or assisting with house work, may secure a student any time by calling the ladies' dormitory.

A Ringing Challenge to Youth!
Youth Can Save the World from War’s Insane Slaughter. Youth Can Build a Decent Civilization Out of the Wreckage and Chaos of the Present Debacle. Youth Can Prevent another Plunge into the Hell of that Organized Butchery called War.
YOUNG MAN. it’s definitely up to you. You can give ear to the fossilized fogies who say that because we've always had war, we always shall have war. Or you can point out that the same type of stupid reactionary once said the same things about human sacrifice — about dueling — about witch-burning — about slavery —about a thousand and one obsolete savageries.
"You are old, father William" the young man said
"And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head—
Do you think at your age, it is right?"
"In my youth" father William replied to his son.
"I feared it might injure the brain;
But now that I’m perfectly sure I have none.
Why, I do it again and again."
We assert that any man who says that war is forever inevitable is metaphorically standing on his head. Lewis Caroll’s "Father William” is the prototype of millions.
The Stupidity of War
What a senseless thing is war! What a futile thing. What a brutally insane orgy of witless killing. It’s murder if one man does it. It’s heroism if a thousand do. Can’t you think for yourself? Haven’t you any moral principles of your own? Are you willing to be a murderer because a world of fools pat you on the back for it? Remember, war is not merely being killed, you’ve got to kill. War is not merely being blinded. You’ve got to blind. War is not merely having both legs blown off. You’ve got to blow the legs off other men. War is not merely, having a bayonet driven through your bowels, you've got to drive your bayonet through the other man’s bowels—a man you never saw before—a man who might in times of peace have become a close friend. War is the complete confirmation of Bernard Shaw’s conclusion that the Earth is the mad-house of the Universe.
How many of you who read this are under sentence of violent death by War? How many are doomed to lose your arms, your legs? How many will be blinded? How many will spend the rest of their lives in a veteran's hospital, a “creature that once was a man.” The last Great War cost 16,000,000 lives. But how many did it doom to a living death?
War’s Insane Waste
From the economic viewpoint how stupid is war. When you win you lose. Who won the last Great War? Who won the California Earthquake? The World War bankrupted the world. Its direct cost was 333 billion dollars. It was a major cause of the present depression. 75 cents out of every federal tax dollar goes for War. One thing is certain. If we don’t crush War— War will crush us.
The Cure for War
How to stop War? There is but one way. In the words of Major General O'Ryan, “We must wage Pence.” An attitude of passive fatalism will never cure war.
There are three causes of war: psyschologi-cal, political, and economic. Machinery has been set up to preserve Peace. It will work only if public opinion is mobilized behind it. That is what World Peaceways is doing. We are focos-ed on the psychological aspect of the problem. The way to cure war is to tell the truth about it —to advertise it for what it is—a brutal, stupid, witless meaningless Hell. Did you ever read Bruce Barton's “Let’s Advertise this Hell!" We’ll send you a reprint for a dime. Bruce Barton wants the world governments to appropriate money to use in peace propaganda. The price of a single battleship, $35,000,000 would mould millions of minds for Peace. A fire department is a0 good investment. Let’s support a fire department to put out war. This effort should be international. World Peaceways is beginning here because this is where we are. Within the past three months we have published or arranged to publish full page ads in over 70 magazines. Our message has reached nearly 9 million people. Starting nationally we shall promptly expand into the international field. We arc purposeful—practical and realistic. We are enlisting the support of business interests. Too long have peace efforts been relinquished to gentle idealists, diplomats and well-meaning old ladies. Business now knows that it has everything to lose and nothing to gain by War. We shall line up international Business for international Pence.
We want to interest college men in our work. We want you to read Bruce Barton's “Let’s Advertise this Hell!” As we said, a dime brings it. We want you to help us to help you. You will be expected to fight the next war. “Father William” will he of no use. He will stand on his head as usual and urge you to engage in the savage business of mass murder. The time to stop the next war is now—before it begins. If you want to help
Send Us a Dollar
or as much as you can spare: the more the better. We can secure $100 worth of advertising space for every dollar you send. Our records indicate almost exactly that ratio. Work with us to build a decent world. If you want to organize a local peace group, write or call for information. You can help to build a sane civilization. If you want a set of our 8 Peace posters to display in shops or on bulletin boards send for them. They're gratis. Send 15 cents for postage and packing. *
Don’t waste your energy deploring the stupidity of the race. Your own brains and vision are of no social value unless you express them in action.

BURRESS HEADS SCORING LIST
Harold Burress, fullback on the McPherson squad and a freshman, from Blackwell, Okla., heads the scoring list in the Kansas Conference by an eight point margin.
The list of leading scorers in the conference are:
McPherson Team Threatens To Score Twice But Fail Close To Line—The Game Was Close, Ottawa Making Only One More First Down
BULLDOGS’ FIRST DEFEAT
Ottawa Scores in First and Second Quarters—Braves Outplayed in Second Half
Ottawa university went to the top of the Kansas Conference last Friday night by defeating the McPherson college Bulldogs 13 to 0. The Braves are now the only undefeated team in the conference and that game was the first defeat of the season for the Bulldogs.
The game was a real battle and was much closer than the score indicates. Ottawa held the edge during the first half when they did their scoring and McPherson was superior in the last half.
The Braves scored their first touchdown in the first quarter after a drive that started from nearly midfield. Knapper carried the ball over and Lasswell added the extra point by a placekick. Ottawa threatened again in the second quarter but a dogged goal line defense held the Braves and Wiggins kicked out of danger.
The second Ottawa counter came in the second quarter on a pass. Knapper tossed a short pass to Thornburg who ran about 30 yards to the goal. Lasswell's kick for extra point was wide and the scoring for the evening was over.
McPherson threatened only once in the first half but a strong goal line defense held the Bulldogs. A short pass over the goal line was incomplete and Ottawa took the ball on the 20 yard line.
At the start of the third quarter an altogether different team took the field for McPherson. Rather it was the same bunch playing in the manner that they had played in previous games. McPherson marched down the field on straight football, but a fumble recovered by Ottawa on the 5 yard line stopped this drive.
On another occasion McPherson waded deep into Ottawa territory and again a McPherson fumble was recovered by Ottawa. Late in the game Kaufman blocked a punt and fell on it on the 4 yard line. With part of the regulars on the sidelines, McPherson was unable to shove it across and Ottawa took the ball less than a foot from the goal.
Both coaches substituted freely late in the game. McPherson played some of the best football they have played this season, but the breaks were all against them.
Friday morning the Bulldogs will travel south to Shawnee, Oklahoma, where they will tangle on Saturday afternoon with the fast Baptists of that city.
This team is rated high in Oklahoma football circles, just as the Bulldogs are respected in Kansas conference games.
Having a team which has been defeated but two times, the Shawnee crew are a bunch that will have to be watched out for.
They defeated Friends university by the mighty score of 37-6, while the Canines were able to tally only a 7-6 win over this same team.
This is the only team which has played both McPherson and Shawnee, and so the dope is rather lacking.
However, it will be a good game for all who may care to go, and the Bulldogs should be able to come home with the long end of the score in their possession.
The Bulldogs have but two games remaining on their schedule, this one and the one with York college, an afternoon game to be played in McPherson on Turkey Day.
However, these two games come out, the Bulldogs will have had a successful year!!
