New Bleachers Will Hold 1300, Binford Supervised The Planning And Work
buildIngs also improved
Modern Equipment Was Installed In Librarian's Office, Many Rooms Altered Or Redecorated
A major success for the athletic department has come in the form of the new athletic field north of the campus. Coach Binford drew up the plans and presented them to the trustees of the college for appro
val. then supervised the work.
Actual work began on June 15. The field was graded and a house moved off that plot of ground. The Bermuda grass was sown about the first of July and the cement curb put In around the regulation quarter-mile track. The lights were moved from the city field.
The field has an eighteen in. crown so that water will not stand on the field no matter how hard the rain. The drainage and surveying were made possible by the city street department and Daniel Johnson, who is city surveyor. The whole field enclosed by an eight foot fence is 700 feet by 330 and will be enclosed by canvas for games. The stadium is 180 feet long with ten tiers of seats and holds 1300 people.
Funds for this project were given by the business men of the town and some equipment was provided by the San-Ore Co.
An extensive program of improvements and alterations on the buildings has been completed for the opening of the fall term of school.
The chapel was redecorated and a piano room was constructed off stage. Also the halls and classrooms of Sharp Hall were refloored, repapered and painted.
The interior of Carnegie Library was completely redecorated and modern equipment was installed In the office of the librarian.
In Kline Hall alterations have been made which provide for cooperative housekeeping in units of four to six girls.
The chemistry laboratories have been redecorated and now ventilation equipment has been Installed.
At Fahnestock Hall, the rooms and halls have been repainted and papered.
The matron's suite of Arnold Hall has been enlarged and redecorated.
Friends of the college in Kansas and adjoining states contributed liberally during the summer to make possible the so much needed improvements.
History Of College Is Being Compiled
A complete history of McPherson College is being compiled and written this year as an NYA project. Dr. Flory Is the professor supervising the project. This will bo the first complete history of McPherson College ever written. This is a timely project. for already the people who helped make the first few years of M. C. history are becoming few. In 1937 McPherson College will celebrate her fiftieth anniversary.
Anyone knowing of any source material or pictures pertaining to the history of McPherson College is asked to communicate with Vernon D. Michael, McPherson College, McPherson, Kansas.

For years McPherson College has had a faculty of which she has been Justly proud. Highly trained men and women who combine their natural ability and intelligence with a spirit of helpfulness and understanding toward the students have always been selected as instructors.
This year even greater strength has been brought to the teaching staff by the election of five new mem-bers. The vacancies left by the withdrawal of Doan F. A. Replogle, Professor J. A. Blair, Miss Lois Wilcox, and Miss Edith McGaffey have been filled by highly educated, competent young professors.
Dr. J. D. Bright, who has long been a popular figure on the campus, succeeds Professor F. A. Replogle as Dean of the College.
Dr. John Boltnott of Winchester, Va., has been elected by the Exucu-tive Board to fill the vacancy In the education department left by the resignation of Professor Blair. Dr. Boltnott is a graduate of Bridgewater College, Va., and received his Ph. D.
degree in education from the University of Va.

The Freshman class is by far the largest, as is the usual case. The Freshmen number 126, the Sophomores. 73; the Juniors. 41, and the Seniors, 31. Besides these, there are 3 special students, and a largo number of fine arts students.

SUMMER SCHOOL WAS HELD SUCCESSFULLY
Field Force Aids In Finding Jobs
Students who need work to help pay their college expenses are asked to register with Mias Gill in the Central office. In order that the field force may place everyone possible, it will be necessary to know definitely the amount of work needed by each student and also the number of hours open for part time employment.
As soon as jobs are located, those who have applied will be notified. Mr. Stoner asks that students be patient for a few days until all the canvassing has been completed. He feels certain that within the next few days everyone who needs work can be placed.
Those who are interested in securing a loan to aid with their finances kt college are also asked to register with Mias Gill, telling her the amount you wish to borrow and the time at which you will need the loan.
Welcome to “The School Of Quality"
With the opening of each succeeding college year we feel a new thrill. Each group of new students brings new friends, as well as some we have met elsewhere—at camp or conference, or perhaps someone we knew In childhood. All of these friendships make college an experience which becomes dearer as time goes on. Friendships formed at a Christian college usually last.
We greet you, all, old friends and new. That you are welcome only partly expresses our thoughts. Make friends while here, for already you have become a part of McPherson College. You have left on someone an impression which shall endure forever.
Welcome to our school. "T h e School of Quality."
Labor Is Honorable
"But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.”
Perhaps Longfellow was not thinking of college students when he penned those lines. Yet bow truly they apply,- even here at McPherson College. There are students who are working while their companions are wandering Idly about, or in numerous instances while their companions, are literally sleeping. Of course, college students need to sleep. But for the student who has to budget his time so that he can work to earn his way through college, education has a real meaning. Work is honorable. It is fashionable. There are more students supporting themselves in college partly or wholly by work, than there are who come to college with all their expenses paid. Jesus of Nazareth was a laborer. He had learned the carpentry trade in boyhood. Why was it that for so long the youth of America looked down upon labor? Why did they hope that college would enable them to live without working?
Fortunately for America, labor has again become honorable in the sight of her youth. Students come to college and ask that they may work. The United States government, through the National Youth Administration, has made it possible for students to earn a part of their expenses through honest labor. In appreciation of this opportunity. college youth has responded with a willingness to be of public service while preparing for greater service.
place for menial development will grow upon us. The Young Men’s Christian Association is one of the organizations that endeavors to further the religious phase of this development. In order to do this effectively the help and cooperation of the young men of the college is needed.
Therefore, let us all join hands in a common enterprise; let us all take an active part in "Y" work, making this a successful and meritorious year.
Willard Flaming. President.
From the Y. W. C. A.
To every girl on the campus the Y. W. C. A. extends a warm welcome. We greet you as follow students and as companions in the search for the good, the beautiful and the true. We invite you to our organization with your highest ideals, your greatest enthusiasm and your most abundant resourcefulness. Our first meeting will he held Tuesday morning at 10:00 o’clock In the Y. W. room. We would be happy to meet you there.
Leta Wine, President.
From the College Church
The College Church extends a cordial invitation to students to attend and support her programs. Sunday School at 9:45 o’clock Sunday morn-ing is organized so that students may enter classes they like best. At 11:00 o'clock Reverend Zook preach-es sermons which will help young people to keep and enlarge upon the religious training they have received at home. College C. E. and Sunday evening sermons beginning at 6:30 will be positive supplements to any college program. Don't neglect your spiritual life, attend the College Church.

THURSDAY, SEPT. 12, 1935
To visit the McPherson College athletic field makes one feel that be is on the campus of some large university. The bleachers are so spacious. The track, field, lights, and fence all look so neat. The solid mat of grass adds a touch which makes the field truly a place of beauty. Coach Binford is certainly to be commended for his careful planning, his persistent effort in getting the approval of the plans, and for his untiring service in supervising the work on the field. M. C. shall always be proud of her athletic field.

The coaches Binford and Selves have been working their men on fundamentals trying to find now material to replace that taken away by graduation. |
From last year's squad of twenty-two men five regulars graduated, all of them having been named on either the all conference team or honorable mention. At present seven of the remaining seventeen members have failed to report for practice.
These men have reported regularly for practice:
Lettermen: Burress, 177, Blackwell. Okla.; Haun, 160, Parkerville; Zuhars, 160, Peabody; Vasqucz, 175. Lyons, Moore, 170, Colwell; Rein-ecker, 170, Qulnter; Rock, 173. Navarre; Barngrover, 184, McPherson; Crabb, 155, McPherson; Strat-man, 140, Geneseo.

Disregarding rumors that the plan has "political Implications," the Na tional Youth Administration this week throw Its machinery in high gear for the avowed purpose of helping thousands of needy college students to help themselves through school.
All officials in the administration either declined flatly to comment or emphatically denied that any political motives entered into the workings of the youth-aid plan, and throughout the country, the students themselves appeared to bo accepting their $15 per month stipend—and welcoming it—at its face value.
It was pointed out that the money
"Y" GROUPS SERVE MELONS
All hands on deck! And all students on the campus- tonight at 7 o’clock—for the annual "Y" watermelon feed. This event is staged jointly by the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. as a get acquainted social tor the particular benefit of new students.
Games will provide entertainment from 7 o'clock till 8 o'clock. However, the chief purpose of this part of the social is to create sufficient appetite to consume all the melons which have been ordered.
A-brief program will be presented in the chapel, after which the students are to march out past the serving counter and receive their allotment of melon. "One at a time boys, don’t crowd."
Well! Another year has passed, and once more the Bulldog team is out for practice.
The squad of 1935 seems to be of much hotter quality and perhaps a little less quantity than in years past. But after all It only takes eleven good men to make a football team.
The loss of several of last year’s stars, most of whom were four-letter men. will give the starting team of this season a considerable change of personnel. However, by the looks of the equad the efficiency of the team should not be impaired.
"Binford Field” the only appropriate name for our new athletic field— is rapidly nearing completion. The bleachers are rapidly taking shape and the grass, which looks like a downy bed completely covers the field. Indeed, this field is something of which all McPherson Bulldogs, both past and present, should be proud.
It won’t be long now! The first football game of the season is Sept. 27 with Friends U. of Wichita. Every M. C. student should bo In attendance.
COLLEGE NIGHT COMING

CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE BUILDS ATOMIC ‘GUN’
Smashing Molecular Structure Equipment Will Reveal How Matter Is Made Up
Construction of a huge atomic gun" to be used In obtaining now data on the composition of matter, Involving the artificial transmutation of various elements, this week was nearing completion at the California Institute of Technology.
The new piece of equipment makes use of a 15-foot-long porcelain vacuum tube, designed to operate at more than 1,000,000 volts. It will ho used In further atom-smashing experiments at the institute, including the artificial creation of radio-active substances.
While numerous complexities were noted in the combination which resulted when previous transmutation experiments have boon carried forward, these have made use of the lighter elements in general. With the now atomic "gun,” scientists at the institute hope to be able to bombard heavier elements to such an extent that new changes and combination can be studied.

NYA PROMOTES SOCIAL WORK-HELPS STUDENTS
is designed not only to aid students who would otherwise be unable to
continue their college careers but that, in addition, these students are automatically prevented from becoming a part of the nation's great army of “unemployables."
In return for the allowance from the government, students qualifying for aid are expected to do an equivalent amount of “socially desirable" work, ranging from research work which otherwise could not be carried on to odd Jobs about the campus. None of the work is to become strenuous and no more than an amount equal to the $15 given to the various colleges and universities by the government Is expected, according to the plan.
Although students helped by the youth administration are ordinarily supposed to receive some financial aid from outside sources to supplement the government revenue, many, it was reported this week, are expecting to live almost entirely on the federal allowance.
In many cases this may be possible. after payment of inescapable first-of-the-term expenses by cooperative arrangements between groups of youth administration students for a division of living expenses. In such cases, by also dividing the household work, such as cooking, dishwashing, laundry work and
housecleaning, students in such cooperative groups expressed the belief that they would be able to "get by" with little outside private aid.
On most campuses, the youth administration workers will be assigned to various "projects," in line with the policy developed under the Federal Emergency Relief Administration. College and university departments, therefore, are taking advantage of this opportunity to complete much research work—particularly the type requiring a large amount of statistical and observational studies — which otherwise would be neglected or delayed.
In the end, boosters for the government-sponsored "youth movement" predict that the country will bo benefited far more than the actual cash outlay required to administer the movement.
High school students in many cases also are being given aid—at the rate of $6 per month, where scholarship, financial circumstances and similar considerations justify.
