Retreat? Webster says a retreat Is a place of seclusion; rest; quiet! and far be It from this one to con-trudict that learned man. But it seems that the juniors and seniors have evolved a new definition of the term. Their places of retreat may have been secluded, but the time they spent there was anything but • a period of rest and quiet.

The juniors retreated Tuesday . evening to Twin Mounds, where, on the hillsides, under trees, and even In the middle of the road. with rocks for pillows, they sought rest. Did they find sleep? Perhaps a few fortunate ones did. but the others spent a restless night. And at the break of dawn, some early rising girls, ready for bacon and coffee, aroused their classmates. Later that same morning everyone went to Salina and spent the rest of the day playing tennis, soft ball, boat riding and in various other activities. Late Wed nesday afternoon, the group returned—winded, sunburned, sleepy and utterly fatigued.

That very game afternoon the seniors left for their place of retreat

Seniors and Juniors Enjoy Annual Retreat

near Halstead. Need It be said that they missed their beauty sleep? About midnight they all decided they needed their daily exercise, so they went up on the hill to play. After playing. most of them rolled up in their blankets and wont off to slum-berland. But a few, not relishing the Idea of sleeping on the damp ground lolled around the campfire all night

Thursday was filled with various activities. Some’ went to Wichita, others went here and there. Perhaps it was because of their previous experience last year that the seniors returned to the campus in better condition than did the juniors.

Following the vogue of the mo ment, the S. C. M. cabinet "took out Saturday evening lor Twin Mounds, from reports It seems that they must have spent a pleasant night. They- returned Sunday morning—In time for dinner.

And so It is that every year these groups seek a secluded spot In the great out-of-doors, sleep next to Mother Nature. play for a day, and return thoroughly needful of recuperation.

Noted Speaker Here


William Allen White, noted world traveler and lecturer, will speak in the College church next Friday afternoon. Mr. White has been active In politics and has been editor of the Emporia Gazette for a great many years. The Golden Anniversary committee was very fortunate in obtaining so noted a speaker as Mr. White.


The Quads Are Out!

The Quads are out! Come and got 'em" was the cry last Monday noon. But alas! only a few lucky ones could receive their college annual. Then It was that treasurers of organizations began flitting around the campus collecting class dues and club fees, for no Quads wore Issued to members of any organisation which had not paid Its Quadrangle bill.

Since Monday small groups, scattered about on porch steps, in parlors, and In various spots, are deeply engrossed In the task of “singing Quads."

Never before In the history of McPherson College has so much Ink been used, for It Is necessary to carry a fountain pen wherever you may go. Around any corner may be some one waiting to poke an annual under your very nose, and say "Write in this, please."

More brain power has been put Into use this week than during all the rest of the school term. Such thoughtful expressions have never been witnessed as that one thinks. "What shall I write in this one?"

So proud are the students of their Quads that they carry them to the dining hall. Perhaps they do sharpen the appetite.

There Is not a more popular nor a more widely read and interesting book on the campus than the Fiftieth Anniversary Quadrangle.

Classes forgotten! Lessons not prepared! Can’t be bothered about such trifles. The Quads are out. and they must be autographed!

Thespian Club To Present Play

Presentation To Be Principle Attraction For Friday, May 28, in Chapel

Laborer Portrayed

Influence of Common Man on Family Theme of “For All of Us

One of the outstanding events of the coming; commencement week will be the presentation Friday. May 28, of the Thespian Club, college dramatic organization, of the play "For All of Us.* The cast has been practicing every day and under the direction of Mias Della Lehman,, head of the dramatics department, with the aid of Misa Margaret Messamer as student director the play has been rapidly developing Into a strong presentation.

The play portrays the influence of a common laboring man with a beautiful philosophy of life on a family where trouble has come. The part of the laborer, Griswold, is carried by George Toland who coached the recent senior production "The Taming of the Shrew" and has appeared in college dramatics on several preceding occasions.

Becky Ann Stauffer, as Joey, appears in the difficult situation of a young woman with whom both a father and his son are in love.

In the character of Frederick Warren, portrayed by Harold Mohler is embodied the theme of the play—the effect of mental attitudes on physical well-being.

Other members of the cast Include Lola Gnagy as Mrs. Warren: Charles Pray. Frederick Warren. Jr., Ethel Warren, Elma Minnick; Mr. Merrick. Fred Nace. Paul Miller, Mr. Fisher.

The pay presents romance, impending tragedy, and sacrifice, with a thread of mystery. deception and villainy running through the plot. The Thespian Club feels In this production they are presenting a type of play which will appeal to students. alumni, townspeople and the general public. The present-day In-terest in practical psychology makes the play of universal interest.

All the practice done by this group was done In rehearsals outside of class. The group practiced a few of the Art dance techniques and thein gave their own conception of the dance. The Art Danco does not depend upon the costume but the movement is the vital part of the dance. The costumes were light grey broadcloth to represent grey clouds' and rain-drops with full skirts and full sleeves giving a graceful effect. The costumes were designed by the group.

at McPherson College. Let us all be boosters and advertisers to the world so that others will receive the benefits of McPherson College and in turn add a huge stepping stone to a greater McPherson College. You seniors let your place In the busy thoroughfare of life be also an self endorsement of your alma muter.

Preparation for a more successful year should be the forward outlook for every vacationist. Let your bodies. mentally and physically be recuperated. In that they may be a storehouse of energy to more successfully fill those niches left by many self-sacrificing seniors.

Alumni Assn.

How glorious It will be if. at our alumni banquet, we can announce that we have reached our goal of $40,000 for the physical education building. We can if every alumnus who hasn't given will send s gener-ous subscription this month. Other groups are making good in the Golden Anniversary Campaign. Why shouldn't we?

My newspaper tells me of a war In a far-away land and of threats a position like 1917. Suppose my that the war may spread. Suppose, the United States Were jostled Into boys were called to give their lives in a war abroad. They and I. as others have. might know the bitter price of war—a tiny white cross.

But that won’t happen If I can help it. Down in Washington a Congressman named Ludlow propos-es to give me a chance to vote on whether my sons should fight in a foreign war. I have asked my congressman to help past that peace referendum plan.

I wish every mother In this community would, too. The sons of all the mothers in this land needs us now. .I can't think of a better way of measuring unto my responsibility of being—a mother.

War Profits Hard To Destroy

1.    governmental ownership of mun-itions plant, 2. reorganization of our defenses on a purely continental basis. and 3. a constructive policy of International cooperation.

legislation on those points would reduce the chances of our Involvement in war. and so reduce the opportunity for some of our citizens to turn death Into dollars. Such a program is a whole lot saner than cooking up plans for a foreign war with'

a    dictatorship thrown In to boot. Congress ought to know that we are done with wars abroad and that we don’t like dictators.

Ay sear her saggy studding down! Its purpose Is complete.

And from within we hear the sound Of swiftly moving feel.

On third floor rings the freshman's scream

And bursts the senior's roar.

The sage of MC’c noble halls Shall brave dust storms no more.

Her walls once red with fresh and baked clay

Now show the strain of years.

And falling ruins from the roof Instill momentous fears.

At her no more shall Idle tongues Cast words of abioquoy.

Nor shall the eyes of searching swains

Her Imperfections see.

'Tis bit a matter of a year Till Fahnestock shall fall.

And In her stead we hope to see A new and better hall.

But even In our later life.

When we new cares embrace.

In memories that rustic dorm Will always have Its place.

Dispels Mystery of

Indian Firewalkers

London, Eng.—(ACP)—There is no mystery about the Indian ascetics who walk through fire: they simply have tough feet.

So said Prof. J. C. Flugei. of the University of London. In regard to experiments recently conducted by that institution's Council for Psychological Investigation.

Glowing red embers were thrown Into a trench 25 feet long and 5 feet wide. The temperature of the smoking lane was about seven times and one-half as hot as boiling water. or 740 degrees Centigrade.

Even Ahmed Hussain. a 23-year-old Moslem fire-walker suffered burned feet. The amateurs who walked through the ashes were burned In varying degrees.

"My feet seemed to sink Into the flowing ashes.” said A. J. Bould. a university student, "and some red-hot cinders stuck painfully to the sides of my feet. It was not too bad."

"I made the experiment out of Interest in It* psychological aspect." declared D C. Russell, a psychology student. "I felt no great pain."

"I didn’t feel much heat." said R. Adcock. the son of an asbestos manufacturer. "My father is an asbestos manufacturer. Perhaps asbestos runs In our blood."

So Long Everybody!

After a week of diligent effort, a somewhat sorrowful student body will bid the McPherson campus farewell. Like a silent, relentless centrifugal force, McPherson College will send Its studious population outward across the United States to their welcoming homes and friends.

No longer will joyous shouts ring through the halls. Rooms. scarred and won. will be vacated by Its Inmates for three months or . . . for-ever. .Those buildings will stand always as monuments of things accomplished and experienced In the past.

Let everyone as they depart resolve to be self-luminous of the de-

We set out to contribute $40,000 to build the new physical education building- as our part of the Fiftieth Anniversary Campaign. Counting. all alumni gifts, we have contributed a total of $18,578.50. The goal we set was not too high  and It can be reached. $21,421.50 more to needed and It should be available. Loss than 400 of a total of about 1860 alumni have given date. If 1200 more alumni will give even small gifts, we can easily reach our goal.

The churches have given well, the local community reached its objec tive, many of you have given generously. and the rest of you are planning to give eventually. Do It NOW. This Is the strategic time to help McPherson College. Remember you

A Mother Speaks

may cloud my eyes for a moment this Sunday as I think back on the time When they crawled around my parlor on their hands and knees. But then I'll smile with the satis-faction that I. too. have given the • world the finest men I could.

I wonder sometimes what the world Will give the two men I have given It. I pray It will he happiness, security, love. good work to do, a family. I would like to see a world wherein all these are In the reach of all young men.

And then a terrible fear haunts me.

War profits are hard to get rid . of, It appears, for legislation would . require the establishment of intri-. cate lax rates and a schedule of pric-. es, a technical knowledge of every Industry In America, and a gigantic  machinery to administer the tax pro-gram. So complicated is the task that a complete regimentation of the country could not actually guar-. antee a profitless war.

The F. P. A. urges Congress to come to grips with the problem from  the point of view of keeping us out 'of war by considering three moves:

To know the etiquette of any sport It every bit as Important as to know the rules. Sportsmanship is an Important phase of every game, fn the book of "Manners'* there are some excellent "Do's" and "Don'ts” given.

‘‘Dont take any game too seriously. Play It to the full, but do not become so absorbed that you put it ahead of all else.

If you play a game poorly, say so quite frankly at the beginning, but dont continue to apologize throughout the game. Above all. never pose as being a better player than you are.

Do not advise others how to play unless they have asked your help. Teaching Is usually left to professionals.

■Don't ridicule anything other players may do.

Always be willing to concede a point when a question arises, and don’t make an Issue of a debatable matter. Don’t, on the other hand, permit any Intentional disregard of the rules of the game or permit an omission of Its penalties.

Be absolutely fair.

Respect the decision of the Judges and the referees without comment.

Be modest when you accept congratulations In winning a match.

Take defeat lightly and don’t make apologies or explanations for not having won a match.

He generous In your praise of another. Give full credit to an opponent. Do not detract from his victory by enlarging on the rules of chance."

College Daze...

I hate to take any more of your time, but I just must say goodbye to Dick Kent. The charge of half tine of words still stands, for we were not speaking of dogma--"that which is held ns an established opinion” such as a church doctrine, but of dogmatic views, which would be views expressed without supporting evidence. In any opinion is a dogma. let me list a few other well-known dogmatists who really think the proposed court '’reorganization” means packing — Arthur Capper. Senator Wagner. Charles E. Hughes. Joe Robinson, F. D. Roosevelt, and Jim Farley—not to 'mention Dick Kent. Dick’s reaction Is easily understood when I recall what he said last winter. "As long as the present setup holds. I can make seven hundred dollars a year If I don’t raise a bushel of wheat." Yea, verily, even Satan can Quote scripture for his purpose.

But you want to be careful when you use that last saying: someone may tell you, as ..Dr. Smith did Boyer, "Well. go on and quote It.”

‘Dof-goned If. I don’t wish some times we could all be dogs! Think of It. no prof could make yon hand In a bunch of drawings or write a term theme. Even better, (psychologists think dogs don’t think) one could upset you by making you think a new thought. Every dog has his day. and you could be happy, for you wouldn't realise it would soon be time for someone else to put on dog. Men would Just send the dog catcher to shoot you. Instead of making a criminal' out of you and torturing you for years with courts and Jails. How little them would be to be afraid of! No * haunted houses, no failures, no alphabetical schemes, no stock-market crashes, no hell, no halitosis or B. O.. for all these are man-made. Dog’s don't know the world Is going to the dogs. Most men live a dog's life anyhow make themselves comfortable by the fire and wait to be fed. they growl at the woman who feeds them.

New W. A. A. Officials Elected

The members of the W. A. A. met Thursday evening at their last regular meeting of this year. The new officers. Marjorie Flory. Lenore Shirk, and Audrey Hammann were Installed by President Wine, and four new members took the pledge. Rilla Hubbard was elected as Spectator reporter for next year. A few other matters of business were discussed, and then the meeting adjourned.

Awards will be given to those members who have earned enough points for letters and cups, at chapel next Tuesday.

The school year Is rapidly drawing to a close. For many the 31st of May will mean the last of formal education. Despite this, however, development should not cease. College has been a decided failure If It has not instilled a desire for further knowledge and advancement. Besides providing learning situations, college should show a student the vast fields of human endeavor that he has failed to touch. In other words. the knowledge of any college- student when compared to ruth and knowledge In Us entirety, 'a Infinitesimal. College. It seems to me. should not only Impress this upon the student but should also create a desire within him to explore and acquaint himself with the unknown. This is by far the best way to keep intellectually and open-minded.    

After four years of, college It seems to me that to a certain extent the wrong emphasis has been placed upon educational process. In many classes we have been encouraged to master details, memorize dates, poems and quotations. After a year Or so much of this Information nat-arally slips a person's mind, espec-ially if the student Is Interested In some other field.     The deplorable

memorized Information, but that details and memorization have been stressed to such an extent that the knowledge of source material has been neglected entirely. Thus when a student does forget he Is completely at a loss—he can neither remember what he learned nor does ho know where to find the material he forgot.

McPherson College, we are told. Is In a cultural vacuum. Be that as It may. there la another field in which our college Is lagging. For the student who participates in organized athletics, ample physical exercise Is provided, but for the scores of others, there to very little opportunity for physical exercise. especially during the winter months. Certain colleges developed an athletic program for the entire student body which stresses those sports which can be participated In after graduation. Friends University Is one oh these schools: There every student to encouraged to develop his athletic prowess In tennis, golf, swimming, etc. This program taken care of the need of physical recreation of college students and helps develop abilities that can be utilized In later years.

—The Culture of Japan—


Toshiro Tsubokawa

Japan by the Department of Communications Is severe. The expression of one’s political opinion or the giving out any sort of advertisement through radio is strictly prohibited. Such announcements as the amount of money distributed to winners at horse races and other items deemed to be against the public Interest are also prohibited. Today we see marked improvements In the Items an in the quality. If we compare with the radio program with that of the early days. The cultural advancement of Japan Is said to owe much to the radio service.

The morning gymnastic exercises led by the broadcasting stations throughout Japan deserve mention. These daily exercises led through microphones have become one of the health movements of the nation.

So the radio stations are located at appropriate points throughout the country, local festivals and other events of the year and local folk songs formerly to be heard by but a Initiated number of people are brought before the nation not only to the pleasure of the participations but also of the nation-wide audience. So no private broadcasting is allowed and all the radio stations are under one governing body, the service has contributed not a little toward the unification of Japanese culture, as In the standardization of the spoken language for example. Education has been remarkably promoted. lectures for men and women, young people, students and children are given consecutively. Such lec. lures include lessons In such for-eign languages as English, French, German. Spanish and Chinese, and discussions of literature. the fine arts, handicraft, etc. Among the educational Items, gymnastic exercises., music lessons and other lessons specially broadcasted for schools during school hours are great ly appreciated by the teachers and students. The progress of the arts suited to radio production Is noteworthy. For Instance, the "Radio drama" is earnestly studied. All sorts

Floy Lackey, Oliver Andrews and George Toland went to the Relays In Sterling Friday and spent the night in St. John and returned to the col logo Saturday morning.

Glenn Morris Will Appear As Tarzan

Wires Dispatched to Find Out Whether Amateur Standing Will Be Revoked

Hollywood. Calif.—Glenn Morris, graduate of Colorado State College, decathlon champion of the world, and winner of the 1936 Sullivan Trophy, highest honor awarded an athlete has been signed to a long term motion picture contract by Principal Productions, to play the role of Tarzan!

The agreement was closed following two weeks of secret screen tests at the company’s Hollywood Studios. Signing of the contract also brings to a close a search extending over a period of more than six months during which time athletes from every brunch of sports were placed under serious consideration! by the film company's officials. So It looks like the Tarzan market will be bearish for some time to come.'

Among those previously namely as possibilities include Larry Kelly. Sander Szabo, Dizzy Dean, James Braddock. Max Baer, David Levin Bob Pastor and Lou Gehrig. Gehrig. Iron Man of the New York Yankees, was signed to a contract last month for the lead In a series of outdoor pictures by Harold Bell Wright and Zane Grey.

Morris will begin work early In May in the title role of "Tarzan’s Revenge," first of the now series of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ stories to be be produced by the film company.

Wires have been dispatched to Dan Perris of the national AAU and P. J. Walsh of the Metropolitan AAU for a ruling whether or not Morris will lose his amateur standing as the result of a film contract: however Morris declares that the decision of the athletic boards will In no way affect the agreement.

Morris first attracted sports attention when he amassed a total of 20 points In a single track meet a new Individual record at Colorado State. As a football player, he was named All-Conference end In 1934 and participated In the annual East-West game In San Francisco.

Professor Declares No

Mystery About Indians

London, Eng.— (AGP)—-There is no mystery about the Indian ascetics who walk through fire; they simply have tough feet.

So said Pro. J. C. Flugel, of the University of London. In regard to experiments recently conducted by that Institution’s Council for Psychological Investigation.

Glowing red embers were thrown into a trench 25 feet long and 5 feet wide. The temperature of the smoking lane was about seven times and one-half as hot as boiling water. or 740 degrees centigrade.

Even Ahmed Hussain. a 23-year-old Moslem fire-walker suffered burned feet. The amateurs who walked through the ashes wore burned in varying degrees.

“My feet seemed to sink into the flowing ashes,” said A. J. Bould. a university student. "and some red-hot cinders stuck painfully to the sides of my feet. It was not too bad."

“I made the experiment out of Interest In Its phychological aspect," declared D. C. Russell, a psychological student. "I felt no great pain."

"I didn’t feel much heat," said R. Adcock, the son of an asbestos manufacturer. "My father is an asbestos .manufacturer. Perhaps asbestos runs in our blood."

Foods Classes Visit Dairy and Mill

.Members of the foods and dietet-ics classes and Miss Atkinson visited the Wall Rogalsky mill and the United. Dairies plant, Friday. May


At the mill the complete processor transforming wheat into flour was explained and each person was allowed to examine the milling mach-inery.

The methods of pasteurization, sterilization and bottling were demonstrated at the dairy. Mr. Sorenson, the owner, explained the use of the various disinfectants. After the demonstration Mr. Sorenson treated each visitor to. a brown giant.

Climbing Upward

Eldora Van Denmark graduates In June with a major in English, and will receive a B. A. degree. Eldora has done considerable and worthy work on the Spectator and we will miss her next year. Best wishes in your teaching, Eldora.

Aa in western countries, the development of radio In Japan has been amazing. Three private broadcasting stations were established in 1925 and these services were started under the supervision of the department of communications. In 1926 radio broadcasting regulations were put Into operation for government control of the service, and the stations were Incorporated Into the Broadcasting Corporation of Japan. The establishment of private broadcasting stations is prohibited by the regulations.

The service Is monopolized. The main office of that body Is In Tokyo and all the stations throughout Japan are managed by that one. Both legal and moral limitations of the service of that body are definitely defined: and Its financial foundation is sound. Japan Is geographically divided into seven districts. Several sub-branch stations are attached to the seven great stations. The main stations and sub stations are closely connected for facility In relaying and exchanging radio programs.

The number of listener-in In Japan. ranked fifth In the world In 1934. the order being the U. S. A.. Great Britain. Germany. Soviet Russia and Japan. The increase In the number of listeners in has been amazing, especially in view of the general business depression during the last few years. But In Japan as in other countries radio broadcasting is not appreciated so much In villages as In towns, contrary to the mission of the broadcasting service The Japanese listeners-in have to pay seventy-five sen (about .35 cents at normal exchange rales) a month. In compliance with government orders, a part of the subscription foe Is contributed to the prevention of tuberculoids and other social welfare work.

Most of the radio receivers used In Japan are of the Midget type appearance sets are much the same an the sets In the U. S. A., hut usually they are equipped with fewer tubes because long distance receiving equipment in not necessary In Japan, the area not being large, the broadcasting service being unified, and many stations being located throughout the country at appropriate points.

Programs and Hours

Broadcasting takes place between 6 a. m. and 10 p. m. Radio programs consists of news bulletins, weather forecasts, educational and cultural items, children's hour and entertainments.

The censorship of broadcasting In

of Japanese musical and theatrical performances have been broadcast and appreciated. Both the classical and modern music of the West, and both old and modern Japanese folk songs are being broadcast. The sports of the seasons are very popular and are broadcast. Nowadays baseball is the most popular sport In Japan. The spring and autumn base-ball series of the university teams,

add culture of japan—spec .......

and annual summer baseball series played by high school teams are enthusiastically listened-in to by radio subscribers. When the games are played, the streets of every town In Japan are full of baseball fans crowding in front of radio sets.

When we discuss the radio program of Japan, we cannot Ignore the exchange of broadcasting programs between Japan and foreign countries. Hitherto Japan has been out-side the range of international radio broadcasting owing to her geographical situation. But the technical progress of the radio and the change in international politics have made It possible and necessary to exchange radio programs with Western countries. Nowadays Japan has become one of the regular members of the radio exchange of the world. The Japanese people earnestly wish to promote mutual understanding among Japan and foreign countries and the peace of the world by way of radio broadcasting. The Broadcasting Corporation of Japan is doing its best for better International exchanger of radio programs.

Girl Challenges Student.

It seems that Flora Peterson, a coed at Wheaton College. Illinois, saw Frederick’s picture in a paper and hurled a challenge at T. C. U. Doc Jekyll:

"I saw your picture In the Chicago Tribune today." she wrote, “and I challenge your title." She enclosed her picture and finished off Fredir-ick with "I may not be beautiful, but I ado the honor roll! Did you?"

Interest Increases In Social Sciences

Trend Revealed by Preliminary Choices of Major Fields at Harvard University

Cambridge, Mass —(ACP)—The surge toward social sciences by Harvard University’s freshmen in “prelim" choices of major fields may upset the Intellectual balance of the college, it was disclosed by Pres. James B. Conant.

About 36 per cent of the sophomores-to-be have shown preference for economics, government and his-tory. To trend toward the social sciences Is revealed by the decline of other subjects.

Last year English attracted 109 freshmen In this vote: this year only 8 1/2. Romance languages dropped from 63 to 37 and classics from 20 to 16.

The definite about-face In student Interest from English to the social sciences Is highly significant, stated Dr. Connnt. Ten years ago, the English dominated the other fields.

This trend. "If It continues In the same direction at the same rate for another decade might well prove disastrous," explained the Harvard president In his annual report.

From the point of view of maintaining a proper Intellectual climate In Harvard College, the distribution of the student body among the various subjects Is of greater significance.

'I am convinced that many of the most important effects of an education arc brought about Indirectly.

But clearly If certain Important subjects have almost no representation, then the Indirect Influence of these branches of knowledge becomes negligible.

If all students who come Into contact with each other socially In a certain group are interested In the same general field of study, the conditions for a liberal education are not favorable.

Dr. Conant expressed the hope, however, that "we have reached the end of the movement away from the arts and letters and toward the social sciences. and that such important traditional studies as philosophy and classics may soon show an Increased enrollment.”

It takes collegians 12 minutes, daylight shaving time, to scrape the bristles off their faces with a sharp razor, writes a reporter at the University of Oklahoma. Each man takes about. 350 strokes per shave.

Summary — Errors: Letkeman, Foutz, Rogers, Evans, Tsubakowa, Rock, two base hits: H. Johnston, Miller. Yoder. Three base hits: Evans, Oxley, Letkeman. Stolen bas-es; Rock.

Thousands See San Romani Run

Runs Off and Leaves All His Opponents In Special Exhibition Mile

Archie San Romani, one of the greatest milers of the present day, ran away from his four opponents In a special exhibition mile run Wed-nesday afternoon at the McPherson college stadium to win the race despite a handicap created by heat, wind and dust. San Romani thrilled thousands who filled the stadium and lined the track to see the great miler In action.

San Romani run the mile In 4:31.6. slow time compared with his usual speed of somewhere near the 4:10 time. After the race the champion miler explained that the wind and dust cut down his speed greatly and handicapped him a great deal.

At the start of the special exhibition race, Lisey of Bethel college Newton, led the field. Ban Romani gained second place at the start with Porter of McPherson college falling Into third place. The first quarter was run in the rather slow time of .67. Other runners In the race were Wilcox and Skinner, both of Emporia Teachers college.

During the second lap It was Lisey San Romani and Porter. The time for the first and second laps was 2.22.

Things did not pick up until soon after the third lap started. San Romani, who had been keeping within two yards of Lisey pulled out to the side and ‘turned on the power" passed the Bethel runner and before the third lap was half finished had pulled Into a 15 to 20 yard lead. As the lap continued his lead continued to widen. Lisey dropped back Into second and Skinner came up Into third place with Porter fourth.

The fourth and final lap was not a rack as far as San Romani was concerned. He did not push himself to the limit for he realized the dangers of dust and of course the wind. The race was between Lisey. Skinner and Porter for second and third places. San Romani had cinched first and In a strong "power drive" finish broke the tape at 4:-31.6.

Prior to the special exhibition mile run several other events were hold. One of thorn was a concert by all the visiting and local bands massed together In one large hand. August San Romani of McPherson directed this concert. Geo H. Hughes, Florence, pioneer band leader of Kansas was the guest conductor of the band. Director Hughes was San Romani's first band director when he was a boy In school. Milford Crabb, formerly of McPherson  and now director of the Kingman, Kan., high school band, directed the McPherson band In a special number. Mr. Crabb had San Romani as his first band Instructor when he attended the McPherson schools When a boy.

Jack Dalby, popular drum major of tho University of Kansas band, gave a demonstration of magic. He was scheduled to appear in a baton twirling demonstration but the strong wind prevented the demonstration. Mr. Dalbey was papular with the huge crowd who heard him speak and explain his various tricks  of magic through a public speaking system.

Extra Curricular Survey Made

The following Interesting results were revealed by a recent survey of extra-curricular activities conducted by Dean Mother. In a class or about thirty Juniors and seniors It was found that 85 different organizations were represented. On theav-erage the members of this group attended 1 meeting In the last 24 hours. In a similar survey of a freshman-sophomore class 77 or-ganizations were represented. The average attendance of the members was 1 1/2 meetings In the last 24 hours.
