REGENTS MAY COMPEL COMPULSORY TRAINING
Land Grant Colleges Not Compelled to Offer Military Courses, However
Bystanders around the arena of a scene of great controversy, students interest was manifest this week in the decision of the United States Supreme Court that land grant colleges may compel their students to take military training. According to this decision, the students who have been resisting drill at Kansas State College will have the choice of acceding to the demand of the regents or enrolling in another college.
A unanimous decision of the high tribunal sustained the action of the University of California in suspending last year Albert W. Hamilton and W. Alonzo Reynolds who claimed resistence to the drill on conscientious and religious grounds. Thus the government sustained its right to compel its citizens to defend it “against all enemies. "
In connection with this dismal statement; however, the court made it clear that land grant colleges were not compelled to offer courses in military training. This decision is in direct contradiction to the contention of the school authorities at Kansas State College.
It is believed that this aspect of the decision will weaken the contentions of Attorney General Boynton who is defending the state in the present litigation involving the re-sistance of Raymond McMahon, a student it Kansas State.
Attorneys for the state and for Raymond McMahon, are to present arguments on Judge Otis Hungate’s division of district court on a motion to dismiss the action by McMahon to prevent the college officials from compelling him to take the military training. Roland Boynton, attorney general, will argue for the state. Ed Rooney will represent McMahon.
McMahon has challenged the right of college officials to require such a course and has obtained a temporary (Continued on Page Three)
Two experienced men from last year’s team-up who appear as good material are Lee Marquis Haun and Mike Vasquez.

Binford and his "tall boys" started practicing Monday afternoon in the college gymnasium, but in a week or two the team will be transferred to the Convention Hall court.
Anton Meyer, sophomore and let-terman from last year, will top the list with his height of six feet six inches. "Tony” last year was the tallest center in the Kansas confer-

Wiggins sneaked in by virtue of a second team vote over Pauls. Lemon, a favorite of many officials, did not poll heavily among the coach-
Of Carpenter, the sports editor wrote: "The nimble member of the backfield quarter Carpenter received so many votes that he must have had a great year under Melvin Binford and Lester Selves. He was at best in the open and was one of the best de-fensive backs in the league. "

NO THANKSGIVING DAY GAME HERE NEXT YEAR
Bulldogs To Play Coyotes At Salina Next Year—Schedule Announced
The annual home Thanksgiving Day game was abandoned last Saturday at a meeting of coaches and other officials of the Kansas conference at Topeka. The Bulldogs’ Turkey Day game for next year will be at Salina against Kansas Wesleyan, but in the fall of 1936 the Coyotes will come to McPherson for conference game on Thanksgiving.
McPherson college has signed a two year contract with Kansas Wesleyan. It formerly was a tradition of the Bulldogs to play Bethany college, Lindsborg, on Thanksgiving, but this game was eliminated a few years

Those mentors of modern education who have torn their hair in attempting to solve the problems incidental to decreased enrollment and lowered endowments should be interested in the consolidation movement in process among colleges over the country.
This movement is well exemplified at Hendrix College at Conway, Ark., which is now celebrating the events of its founding fifty years ago. This consolidation of three colleges saves $60, 000 a year in overhead expenses, reduces the cost of plant and plant maintenance, and increases its financial resources. Further, it widens the constituency and retains the benefits of the small college.
A second recent move is the federation plan of the colleges of Toronto. These small colleges are in close association with the university and carry with it the chief advantages of the university.
Closely related to this plan is the plan of the Claremont Colleges of California. Each has Its separate corporation and student body, while the corporation provider for common needs, like library and science buildings. From all recent, indications some such solution of our problems of higher education must be worked out: a course lying somewhere between the large university and the small college, one with the intellectual advantages of the university and the human advantages of the college.

Red Cross Not Immune
In an editorial of the November 28, 1934 issue, the Christian Century reviews a detailed article by J. L. Spivak printed in the American Mercury. November 1934, in which Mr. Spivak charges the Red Cross with "shady business" and calls for a congressional investigation.
The governing body of the Red Cross consists of a central committee of eighteen, six of whom are elected by the local Red Cross chapter delegates, the rest being chosen, some by the President of the United States, and others by the board of incorporators, composed of sixty-five members. Obviously this places control of the Red Cross in the hands of the President and the incorporators. Mr, Spivak states that of this board of incorporators "28 are presidents or directors of banks; " 12 are closely connected with banks; “11 are politicians with close banking and military interests": "4 are definitely military (general, admiral, ex-American Legion commander), 2 are business men, 1 is a Pittsburg coal operator, 2 are lawyers, 1 is a director of banks, 2 are university professors, 1 is a conservative labor leader noted for his ‘patriotism’. " He states also that the personnel of the central committee is similar.
The Christian Century editorial points out that Mr. Spivak charges, rather undeniably, that the Red Cross is largely under military control. "The question whether the Christian church, which is well on the way to a complete break with the war system, can consistently make the Red Cross the agent of its philanthropy end charity has not hitherto been raised. But it must now be faced along with the question of the church’s support of the military chaplaincy. If religion means to fake seriously its own renunciation of war. "

Your Last Game
Fond memories of college days will be carried forth by students of '35. In dramatics, forensics, or athletics certain events of the years will stand out as important. Significant in the events of the football man’s life has passed with his last football game.
That last game should represent in your memory a sport in which clean sportsmanship has been uppermost: in which companionship with the squad has been a means of cementing friendships; and in which a devotion and loyalty to the college has been engendered.
Your "last game" is not your last game. The future holds the same possibilities for work in the same spirit. For the seven men who are playing their last game this idea can be fully appreciated.
Football men often feel that the breach between them and their most active supporters of the city is broad. Having contacted them only through the cheering sections and the sidelines, the feeling "apart" is a difficult one to overcome.
Business men of the city took an opportunity to remove any possibility of this feeling Tuesday evening. The occasion was the banqueting of thirty-three members of the football squad by the Rotary Club. Speeches from football players and the business men broke any possible barriers between the two.
The club should be complimented on its willingness to show an added spirit of enthusiasm at the close of the season.
Opportunity for Renewal of Student Effort
Decision of the Supreme Court that land grant colleges ran enforce compulsory military courses will come as a blow to many student protestors in the interest of peace through non-cooperation with the military training system. The court was unanimous in its belief that the University of California students cannot continue their work at the university without military training.
The decision, however, does not rue that the prospects for Raymond McMahon in his case with the officials at Kansas State are any more discouraging. Since the court did not rule on whether land grant colleges are required to teach courses in military training, an opportunity is left for those who believe that compulsory training should he abandoned to renew their efforts.

Students To Study Governmental Process
By Actually Working In Various Offices
The apprenticeship system of training young people for government service will make its appearance on a national scale early in 1935, according to The Christian Science Monitor.
Between 50 and 125 college students chosen by faculties in accredited colleges in all sections of the country will go to Washington for the months of February and March to study the government by actually working in various offices. The lecturers will be officials of the government, and the teachers will be social science professors on leave of absence from their colleges.
Students will be selected from juniors, seniors, or recent graduates on requirements similar to those for Rhoades scholars. Scholastic standing, interest in political affairs, and qualities of leadership will be considered. A restricted number of scholarships will furnish transportation to and from Washington.

Basketball Coach and His Dog Were Familiar Sight on Euclid Street
McPherson college was nicknamed the "Bulldogs” in 1917 by sports
writers and others over the state who then saw in the college a rising athletic team that would secure high rank among the denominational schools of Kansas.
It was a 60-pound white English bulldog, ‘‘Ben" by name, from which the college received its title of Bulldogs. "Ben" was not an ordinary dog. He was never grouchy and was a friend of everybody. On the basketball court between halves at games he would perform and romp with his master and the team and his fame as a mascot soon spread over the state. He went to all the games, no matter whether the game was at home or on foreign courts.
"Ben's” master was E. D. Verink, secretary of the McPherson Y. M. C. A. and also basketball coach at McPherson college. Verink is now a missionary in China and has been in the foreign field since leaving this city.
One of the common sights on East Euclid street when "Ben" was “going to college" wag Verink on his bicycle. He always rode a bicycle back and forth from the college, with the big bulldog in a harness pulling him. "Ben" seemed delighted in pulling his master. Verink was seldom seen on his bicycle with "Ben” not pulling him.
McPherson college didn't have a football team in 1917. It was not until the school year of 1919 and 19 20 that the first football team was organized. Another Y. M. C. A. secretary was the first coach. W. E. Daniels. He coached the Bulldogs for two seasons and in the fall of 1921 the first regular and full time coach was obtained. “Dutch" Lon-berger, now head basketball coach of Northwestern, was the first regular coach.
McPherson’s colors of red and white were chosen shortly after the college was formed nearly 55 years ago. The colors have remained the same throughout the years, and are even incorporated in the college
The Thanksgiving holiday was spent in various ways by the students of McPherson College. Many journeyed to their homes to the arms of fond parents; several joined their sweethearts—or took them home with them—: and many of the less fortunate remained in McPherson and froze their toes at the Ottawa football game—but it was worth it.
Among those who went home were Lowell Haldeman and Gerald Denny, who spent the four days in Hope. Harold Zuhars deviated from his usual habit of going to Lyons to see the girl friend and went to his home in Peabody instead. Everett Brown took his inseparable companion, Gerald Custer, home with him to Wichita. Lowell Brubaker visited his parents in Colorado.
Among the vacationers at whom Cupid's darts appear to have been flying were Russell Carpenter and Pauline Abuhl, who motored Friday morning to Russell's home at Sa-betha. Faithe Ketterman, accompanied by Newell "Tuffy" Wine, '34, went to her home in Abilene after the game Thursday. Robert Bowman, '34, Quinter, came to McPherson for Thanksgiving to visit his friends, not the least of whom is the blonde junior who stays at Replo-gle's.

Why theologians throw up their hands:

The student has objected to the enforced military training on two grounds—religious and that the federal land grant accepted by the state did not require compulsory military training as contended by school authorities.
Boynton said in his motion to dismiss he would argue that the board of regents had the right to compel such a course at the school and also that military training was required at land grant colleges under terms of the grant.
“Government, federal and state," said the opinion delivered by Justice Butler, "each in its own sphere owes a duty to the people within its juris-diction to preserve itself in adequate strength to maintain pease and order and to assure the just enforcement of law. And every citizen owes the reciprocal duty, according to his capacity, to support and defend government against all enemies.
"Plainly there is no ground for the contention that the regents order requiring able bodied male students under the age of 24, as a condition of their enrollment, to take the prescribed instructions in military science and tactics, transgresses any constitutional right asserted by these applicants.”
Five young Psuedo-Utopians seeking a taste of a simpler life journeyed into the comparatively uncivilized hills of southern Missouri over the Thanksgiving vacation, and enjoyed life at its loftiest for a period of five days.
Wiser through experience yet fired with a new enthusiasm, the quintet returned to civilization with startling tales of noncalant meditation among spine (hilling dangers, such as bats, bears, and rabid (rabbit) indigestion.
"Pigeon Roost Cave" was for several days the sole habitat of the Utopians and the beautiful trickling stream which meandered from its entrance served as refrigerator, wash basin, dish pan, and drinking fountain.
The theme song "Wood Smoke Hurts Your Eyes" was rendered throughout each meal from soup to marshmallows, this number was also very popular with the cooks.
One member of the group suffered particularly from indigestion, and in attempting to relieve the diaphragmatic pressure by use of the second and index fingers applied vigorously in attempting to reach the base of the esophagus, presented a study in supreme agony and disgust.
Having passed through all the hazards of a back to nature movement with but few scratches, the five returned home filled with new vigor as a result of the pilgrimage.
Carpenter Scores Touchdown In First Quarter—Zuhars Does Outstanding Work
On a new sod field, located just west of the city limits between Kan-sas avenue and Marlin street, the McPherson College Bulldogs closed their 1934 football season by defeating the Ottawa Braves, 7-0. The three-day rain prior to the day of the game made it impossible to use the McPherson Athletic park field which has a non-sod surface.
Despite the cold weather a large crowd was out to see the Canine eleven in their last game. In this game, seven of the McPherson players saw service for the last time. This contest offered sport fans a chance to see some of their favorites in action in their final stride. The men that are to be graduated are Captain Leonard Wiggins, Walter Pauls, Russell Carpenter, Harold Binford, Orval Eddy, Herbert Glover and Walter Weddle.
The Erickson crew won the toss and chose to defend the oast goal. McPherson kicked to Ottawa and the Braves punted back to the McPherson 45-yard line on the kickoff play. The Bulldogs drove to the Ottawa 15-yard line where they lost the ball on downs. Ottawa punted to McPherson and the Bulldogs drove deep into the territory of the Braves where Carpenter running behind perfect interference scored on an 11-yard run off right tackle. Haun kicked the extra point. McPherson kicked off to Ottawa and after tanking a first down on their 35-yard line, the Braves were forced to kick. McPherson worked the ball into scoring territory only to be held for downs. The quarter ended with the pigskin in Ottawa's possession deep in their own territory.
The Braves kicked to mid-field, and the Bulldogs, on successive plays, drove to the 15-yard line where they were again held by the then from Ottawa. The opponents kicked out of danger to the McPherson 46-yard line. Zuhars came into the game to replace Carpenter. On the first play, this substitute halfback carried the ball off tackle and eluded several tacklers to be run out of bound on the Ottawa 15-yard line after having made a 40-yard run. This play was called back and a penalty of 15 yards was imposed upon the local team for tripping. Then the Bulldogs were forced to punt. Ottawa could not gain, so they kicked to the McPherson 45-yard line. McPherson started a march down field for the Ottawa goal, having gained three successive downs when the half ended.
Ottawa kicked off to McPherson to start the second half, and Bur-ress returned the ball to the 50-yard line. The Bulldogs started down the field only to have the Braves tighten their defense and hold the local squad in the shadow of their goal. The Braves rallied and made two first downs before, they were forced to punt. McPherson, taking the ball in mid-field, was held for downs. Wiggins kicked out of bound on the opponents' 12-yard line. Ottawa kicked to mid-field as the quarter ended.
Nearly all of the last quarter found the Canine eleven marching down the gridiron to the shadow of the Braves' goal. At this point the Braves would hold and kick out of immediate danger only to have the process repeated. Just before the game ended the Ottawa team completed two passes to place the ball in mid-field when, the gun sounded that ended the game.
The starting, line-ups were as follows:
MCPHERSON POSITION OTTAWA Wiggins L.E. Pett
Eddy L.T. Pitts
Moore L.G. Gedound
Rock C. Marti
Vasques R.G. D. Dorty
Weddle R.T. Eagles

The Bulldogs closed their, season with a 7-0 defeat of the Ottawa Braves. It was the Braves that robbed McPherson of the championship a year ago—so it was sweet revenge for the veteran Bulldogs!
That was a very nice run made by Zubars in the second quarter even though the play was called back and a 15-yard penalty imposed. This lad should be given much credit for the success of the Bulldog offense. Indications are that Harold should have a great season next full.
The Ottawa men fought gamely on their goal line. All but once they turned back the offensive attack of the Binford-Selves crew in their pay territory.
Congratulations to the all-conference men—Carpenter and Wiggins. These two players showed, up well all season and were chosen by the coaches of the conference circuit as representatives on the mythical eleven.
Pauls, Vasquez, and Binford were good enough to make the second team. It is the opinion of many that they are good enough for anybody's all-star selection. Pauls was chosen as captain of this team. If it were not for a personal grudge that one of the coaches in the loop holds against "Whitle,” it is quite possible that this member of the Canine squad would have been placed on the first team.
The new field that was made for the Thanksgiving day game proved to be the best that the Bulldogs have played on this year. Erickson, Otta-wa coach, said that it was the boat field in the state. The native sod made it a fairly fast field despite the wet weather.
Seven Bulldogs played their last football for McPherson College when they met the Ottawa Braves. They were Captain Wiggins, Pauls, Carpenter, Binford, Weddle, Eddy and Glover. All of these men except

He did not know the powder had crystallized into dangerous nitro-glyccerine, enough to blow the college clear out of Los Angeles. At least to the city limits.
