We Have A Problem!

We have a problem! Most of you will probably laugh and say that we have many problems. At the present time though we are thinking of a problem that can be solved immediately. To solve this problem will require no costly litigations nor any large fees to be paid to a lawyer. It is a problem that trustees, faculty members. and students themselves can solve.

The problem we are referring to is the car problem on circle drive. At the present time the drive is inadequate for both parking and to accommodate the automobiles that seek to enter the college campus. The drive also needs to be completely resurfaced. This is necessary because of the heavy traffic oh circle drive.

First let us look at the parking problem. At the present as one enters the drive they find themselves literally "squeezing” their automobiles up the drive between two rows of parked automobiles. Besides two rows of automobiles fighting for room on the drive we also have several large evergreen trees that are encroaching on the drive and are blocking the view.    

Now since the advent of the "horseless carriage,” it has been necessary for many colleges and other institutions to increase the amount of parking space that is available, and to make certain restrictions on the college drives.

Several methods of remedies have been suggested for this particular incident.

One would be to restrict parking on circle drive except for a reserved area just south of Sharp Hall. This area would be reserved for visitors and people who come to the college on business. Students and faculty members would then be required to park in back of the dorms and to the west of the Physical Education building. However parking space at these two places would need to be increased. This could easily be accomplished.

Another suggestion would be to widen circle drive to the extent that it could accommodate both parked and incoming automobiles.         

As for the resurfacing this should be done regardless of the action taken on the parking problem. The entrance to the drive is full of chuck holes caused by the heavy traffic and the long siege of ice and snow. If the drive were widened then this would naturally be done. If a restrictive parking law is worked out then it still should be done. As one enters the college campus they often formulate their opinions. McPherson College should try to help form those opinions. We can solve this problem.

This is the problem that trustees, faculty members, and students can solve. We must solve it soon.

Guest Editor

Regional Meetings Started fn 1890

This week’s guest editor is Mr. James Elrod, executive secretary of the Western Region of the Church of the Brethren. Mr. Elrod has been working for the past several months, on setting up the machinery for Regional Conference. Out of his office comes the placement of the ministers of the region and guidance to the student ministers.

His editorial on the history of the Regional Conference follows.

This weekend McPherson College and the Western Region will entertain the 1949 Regional Conference. This is a privilege of no small account.

It is rather interesting to run back over the history of such gatherings. This now Regional Conference had its first inception growing out of an action of the 1890 Annual' Meeting of the Church of the Brethren. Some of this action reads as follows:

Item 14. paragraph 1. “Standing Committee shall, by approval of Annual Meeting, appoint a Committee of three elders for each of the Brethren’s schools . . . whose duty it shall be to watch over the moral and religious influence of the schools."

Paragraph 3. "At least once a year the doctrines of the church shall be especially held forth in a series of doctrinal sermons."

Growing out of this action there developed what used to be known as the Bible Normal. Following a number of years of this procedure, this Bible Normal grew into the Minister’s Conference. These continued up to the 1920’s when the conference began taking on the form of a workers conference. In 1936 by order of the Annual Meeting regions were authorized. The following February the Western Region was organized and the Workers Conference became the official conference of the Region.

During the past thirteen years the Regional Conference has grown from its rather informal inspirational meeting type of conference into its present form of business meetings, sectional conference, and inspirational meetings.

For many years now the Conference has brought to the campus some outstanding speakers other than those from the Church of the Brethren. Though we have assigned the major responsibility, apart from Dennis Savage, for speaking to Brethren men this year, we anticipate a great experience together.

Cousin Dolly can't understand a girl who is both pretty and good, it seems such a waste to have beauty and not use it!

Wanted:, Youth To Serve

Volunteer Service Needs Help In Raising $60,000

Volunteer Service. What is it? it is youth giving part of their lives—a year or more—to "give the cup of cold water to thirsty men,” to live their Christian faith in serving human need. It is a unique opportunity for youth to grow together in the philosophy and the skills of peacemaking. It is a way to increase loyalty to the church, to witness by example for the way of love, and to seek more earnestly the real meaning of the way of Jesus for our entire lives.

When is it? It is Now, Forty-nine youth are already to service. They have all finished one of the courses of training at New Wind-sor—Sept. 15 through Nov. 30, or Dec. 1. through Feb. 28. They studied together in classes on human relations, on personal devo tions, on the New Testament teachings, on world conditions, on training to be world builders, and on the history and background of the Church of the Brethren. They are now situated in projects throughout the country—peace caravans: relief center at New Windsor; Falfurrias, Texas, Green County, Virginia; Pahokee, Florida, Castaneer, Puerto Rico; and others.

Due to lack of funds, the March training program has been cancelled. The next unit will begin in June, and more than a dozen youth already have enrolled.

How is it? The spirit and determination of the volunteers and others supporting the B. V. S. program are high. The funds are very low, but the program must not die! The youth of the church began plans for volunteer service, and they are coming to their own rescue with a plan to raise the $60,000 needed to maintain it. Some are giving a penny a meal for volunteer service. Some youth are selling $10, $25, $100 certificates marked Brotherhood Fund, designated for volunteer service, to adults. Can the youth prove there is enough interest and funds for B. V. S. to continue before it is too late? This is a challenge and a golden opportunity.

Whom is it for? It is for you, and you can do this;

1.    Sign a card giving a year of your life.

2.    Talk to others about volunteering.

3.    Sell $10, $25. and $100 certificates designated to Volunteer Service.

4.    Give a penny a men for Volunteer Service.

5.    If you can not give a year of service, sign a card pledging your support to Volunteer Service.

What can you and other members of your group do in February? Also in the month of March and June? Youth united can make Volunteer Service a vital part of the program of the Church of the Brethren, and bring closer the long-range goal—World Brotherhood.

The Times is Big Time? Spectator Boasts 100% College Graduate Readers!

Ask any resident of New York how he keeps tab on the world, and he is almost certain to answer. "Through the New York Times.” It is clear, therefore, that the Times is important to New York.

Equally important to the student of McPherson College is his own, self-created Spectator, the great arch-rival of the Times.

Occasionally, it is true, the Times "out-scoops” the Spectator; but we still refuse to concede a moral, victory to our contempor-ary. For just as the Times informs its readers of world happenings, so does the Spectator inform regarding local happenings. Besides, we are much more entranced by the week’s new engagement than by the new political goat.

While the Times slanders her journalistic opponents through

malicious editorials, the Spectator humbles hers by printing humorous excerpts from their pages. We profit in three ways—we enjoy free the humor which our rival racked their brains to originate; we fill our paper (a major item); and we receive no smarting return of hostilities.

The Times is enraged by this subtlety, and brazenly declares a war of the editorial wit.

The Times rooters callously bray that their paper is a wee-hit more extensively read. We are force to agree with this, but judiciously counter with a triumphant smirk that the Spectator’s readers are more intellectually advanced. For what other leading newspaper’s subscribers are 100 percent potential college graduates?

Times fans agin lead with their chins out by ranting that their offices gain a slight edge by being more spacious and luxurious. We sagely conquer by announcing that our creaking entrance stairs give amnio warning for evacuation procedures at the approach of a bill-collector.

If by this time, the die-hards are not sufficiently subdued to throw in the white-towel, they weakly murmur that their editor is world renowned. Here, we deftly administer the coup-degrace. We say "Goody for you. but our editor is Max McAuley.”

This having the desired succumbing effect, we hasten up the creaky stairs to lift some humor, from the Times for the next edition of the SPEC.

By Carmina

With weather like we've been having, the town kids find school a problem. In case you haven't noticed, Lakeside Park is a pretty breezy place these cool wintry days, and many of them live quite a few blocks away, so transportation becomes a problem.

Because it is a problem, it might be nice to point out a few different phases and types you run up against.

First we have the regularly organized car pool, with each member contributing his car at least once a week. Then we find the car pool type in which one person does the exclusive driving, and the rest pay expenses.

These two types are very popular. but also, there are some kind souls who play chauffenr for the rest, for free, plus waiting for them to dress and running them on their errands. (These good-hearted souls deserve a special award for patience and goodness on and beyond the cull of duty.)

Then lately, we find the abso-lute pet peeve of all "driving" college students, the hitchhiker. Now. let us first make it clear that nobody hold it against a person, be-cause he is forced to walk and try to get a lift occasionally, but there is one type hitchhiker that makes himself obnoxious by thumbing you down, crawling into your car. and then proceeding to talk down car pools. He thinks they are silly and you will never catch him wasting his money. He can always find a ride with some sucker. Then too, he usually has a car: but it was muddy, and he hated to get it dirty. As he steps out of your car in front of Sharp you silently breathe "Never again." and then you glance at the horrid mess his muddy feet have left on your clean floor.

Don't you agree, transportation is a problem!

Most of the town kids work in addition to going to school. The nature of their jobs vary and are interesting to observe.

For instance. Dale Carpenter works for an oil field company, while Bill Sheets is in the printing department at the offices of the Farmer's Alliance Insurance Company.

Annette Shropshire Is the assistant to the bookkeeper at the Mil-ler-Kennedy Motor Company (where they sell new Buicks) and Lenore Sorenson holds the same position at the Miller-Kennedy Implement Company.

ents at a buffet dinner. Those attending were Misses Delma Cline Margaret Daggett, Sara Mae Williams, Helen Stover, Lois Yoder, Phylis Schmutz, and Doris Lor-ell; and Messers Bill Moore, Bill

Daggett, Charles Petefish, Don Stevens, Kenneth Watkins, Bob Augsburger, and Charles Lewis.

Mr. Don Ford entertained Misses Wilma Smith and Pattie Bittinger and Mr. Lloyd Hung, and Mr. and Mrs. Slifer at a steak fry held at the Slifer home.

The foods class of the college, which is under the direction of Miss Seik, visited the Wall-Rogal-sky Milling Co., on Tuesday of this week. The class is made up of all girls.

At the home of Mrs. Harold Beam, the Cosmos Club held its regularly scheduled meeting. The theme of the meeting was on the international scale. Each mem-ber was required to bring something with a foreign origin or portraying the foreign element. Mrs. E. S. Hershberger was in charge of the program. The program was on international food, customs, and costumes.

Most every afternoon you will find Lurry Treder busy at work in the office of the Alliance Agency on East Kansas Avenue, and Dean Cotton usually helps out at his dad's service station on the corner of Elizabeth and Main.

Phyllis Raleigh is one of those lucky girls that get a discount. She works in the office at Morris and Sons, and Phyllis Brown works at the Miller Book Store.

These town kids are really busy little bees, aren't they?

This is only a few of them, but we'll be back next week with more news and views from the town kids . . . and so till then, thirty!

Collegian Column

At Midland College in Fremont, Nebraska, a dog caused the art professor to fall and hit her head on a bookcase! The injury was not serious, but she still has a hump to remind her of the accident.

The dog had apparently stayed in the building all night and had chewed several articles in the room. Including two papier ma-ches.

At Manchester College the new men's dormitory, Calvin Ulrey Hall, was dedicated last Saturday and Sunday.    .

Dr. Andrew W. Cordier, executive assistant to Trygve Lie. the secretary general of the United Nations, spoke at Manchester College Monday. Feb. 14. Dr. Cordier was head of the political science and history department of Manchester for many years.

From the Kansas State Collegian, wo find: Beginning next fall, the course called "History and Ethics, of Journalism" will be referred to as Just "History of Journalism."

From Ira

During a bit of leisure the other day I strolled about the campus. The more I walked the more I saw, and the more I saw the more I thought. These undirected thoughts soon begun to close in from all directions and focused on a single question—what does our campus have to offer to the hundreds of students who enroll here each year?

I sought an answer to this question from the faculty. Samplings of their responses follow:    "I

tench the composition of matter and the physical laws of the universe"; "I teach the laws of mathematics and develop skills in their manipulation": "I teach the art of homemaking—how to furnish the home and how to feed and clothe its members": "I train the students in recreation, sports, and major athletics”: "I deal in social data, including both individual and group behavior"; "I train in the art of teaching"; "I teach the history of nations and the intricacies of government"; "I expound philosophy, religion, and sacred literature”; "I acquaint the students with the laws of speech, and writing and give them an appreciation of the best literature of the world": “I teach art and its application to living”; "I teach the techniques of vocal and instrumental music”: "I teach other languages and. through them, appreciation for other peoples"; "I teach the laws of economics and the skills of secretarial work.” Thus spoke the faculty.

I then talked to a number of students and graduates of the College who were eager to help solve the "riddle of the campus." Listen to a few of their remarks.

"Here I found a professor who was interested in me and made me believe in myself.”

"It seems that being here makes me more conscious of the needs of the world and gives me a desire to help solve some of its prob-lems.”

"At first I rebelled against coming to a small school, but now I want to stay and graduate. I have learned to appreciate college where you can know mo6t of the students."

"The campus will always be dear to me. One evening as my ‘Romeo’ and I sat on the cement seat at the bake of the flagpole, and as a smiling moon winked at us through the branches of an elm tree, he placed a diamond ring on my finger. Years have added to the bliss of that romance, and we try to make regular pilgrimages to the campus to relive that moment of rapture."

"It was here I learned that people really cared what my habits were. Ruth told me so with tears in her eyes, and I wanted Ruth."

"Here on this campus my conflict of beliefs ended. It required

months of study, counseling, and meditating, but I would not exchange the philosophy of life I acquired here for the largest fortune in the world."

And so continues the story of thousands of students who have benefited from their many contacts on this small area of only a few city blocks known as our campus.

What does our campus have to offer to the students who attend here? The answer seems to be everywhere — excellent academic training plus an opportunity for abundant living.

Spectator Salutes Mr. Frank Forney

Because he has worked on the campus for 29 years, most people would think that Frank Forney would begin thinking about retiring and spending the years in luxurious retirement. But this is not true of "Forney" as' he is known by Mac College students.

He and his wife were married forty years last fall. Before coming to McPherson College. Forney was a general carpenter.

When asked if there were any outstanding pranks pulled in these many years, he stated that he could not remember any particular one and besides sometimes we talk too much about them anyway.

At the present time the Forneys have one daughter, who lives at home.

Because of the lack of a pension plan on the part of the college, Mr. Forney is not planning on retiring since he is the breadwinner for his family.

Vacations seem to enter into his life very seldom because over the many years he has only been away on a real vacation three times. Twice he visited the annual conference and once he traveled to Chicago to see the windy city.

He has attended engineering seminars that were held in Wichita, Hutchinson, and Topeka. However. these were in connection with his position on the campus.

He is a graduate of the old Mt. Morris College in Illinois. His hometown is Waterloo, Iowa. This is also where he met his wife who, according to him, is the best cook there is.

His wife’s father was business manager at Manchester College in the early days of that Brotheren school.

Mr. Forney stated that he had no hobby but that he thought his wife’s hobby was cooking.

The Spectator salutes Mr. Frank Forney who has contributed 29 years of his life to the college.

Seven Kansas Colleges, Universities Represented At Wichita Institute

On February 12-13. a peace institute was held at Friends University in Wichita, with representatives from at least seven colleges and universties in Kansas.

The conference was sponsored by the Institute of International Relations with the FOR (Fellowship of Reconciliation) and the CORE (Congress of Racial Equality) cooperating. The delegation from McPherson College consisted of Dr. Lowell Heisey, Miss Ruth Early, Miss Betty Wolfkill, Mr. Paul Wagoner, Mr. Jim Hoover, Mr. Ellis Powell, Miss Doris Blocker, Miss Claudia Jo Stump, and Mr. and Mrs. Oran Hoffman.

The conference began at 10:30 a. m. Saturday with a brief outline of the conference. This was led by Winfield Fretz, professor of sociology and dean of meir at Bethel College at Newton. Other speakers in this session were Albert G. Watson, regional representative of FOR, and D. Ned Linegar, YMCA secretary, Kansas University, Lawrence.

Following dinner, which was

served in the Friends University cafeteria, the Min Con (Miniature Conference) groups met. Ruth Early, co-secretary of the Western Regional Conference for Brethren Service and Peace at McPherson College, was co-ordinator.

Topics of discussion in the Min Cons were: revolutionary methods. with regard to pacifism: attitudes; barriers between militarists and pacifists and ways of breaking them down: developing peaceful attitudes in children; actively trying to eradicate unthoughtful stories and Jokes about minority groups; values of becomchapel time. At 11:20 the same day he will speak on the "Major Goals of Our Church." Mr. Zunkel will also be heard several times on Thursday.

ing or being born a convinced pacifist; ways of being most effective as pacifists.

Following tea, which was served at 2:45, the conference divided into three groups.

The first of these groups was "Non-Violent Approach to Social Injustice" with Leroy G. Moore, dean of the faculty at Langston University. Langston. Oklahoma. Dean Moore listed what he thought were four moral obstacles preventing peace: race prejudice, economic nationalism, sovereign nationalism, and patriotism. Prejudice and discrimination against minority groups was felt to be a major area of social injustice. Pointing out that we need to guarantee the right of every person to go where he pleases, to live where he pleases, to keep a fair job, etc. the group recognized that since prejudice grows out of motivation and education for it, there will be no elimination of race prejudice unless economic exploitation si-multaneously is purposefully eliminated.

The statement. "Human rights must be placed above all others" was stressed. Some specifics suggested were: that we encourage our colleges to have inter-racial, intercultural faculties and student bodies (all races being treated alike); that we encourage our merchants to hire employees without discrimination; that in the home when children first begin to ask questions, as we answer them, we do not instill in them prejudice; that the Kansas Colleges unite in some way for dissemination of information, action sugges-tions etc.

The second of the afternoon groups was "Pacifist Attitude Toward Russia” with Ab Watson as leader. He stated that the problem between Russia and the United

States is one of deadlock; and, in the present situation, the only out-come will be a World War III which will be atomic and total However, he suggested a program of unilateral disarmament which would go like this: (1) The United States Government would call a conference of all nations to plan disarmament. The method of beginning this would be by the United States disarming Itself and inviting Russian officials to watch the destruction of these weapons. (2) With the money saved by not building armaments, the United States will send a great mission of mercy all over the world on the basis that the only way to overcome evil is to love ones eneimies. Because we belive Russia to be our number one enemy, he proposed that we feed them first. (3) The United States should give itself enthusiastically to genuine international organizations such as the United Nations UNESCO. (4) We should begin the Job by transforming the United States into a true Christian democracy.

Mr. Watson, stated that the reasons for the United States to carry through this plan is that the Russians have just gone through the devastation of war and want peace as much as we; but that Stalin is a realist and when he makes the statement that "we must be strong to fight the United States,”, the Russians look to the United States with all of its armaments and bases all over the world and believe him. Therefore, if the United States would disarm. Stalin would have no basis for this statement.

The third group was under the heading, "Living Our Belief in a Pacifist Way of Life" and was under the leadership of Floyd Davidson, minister of the Fairmount Congregational Church in Wichita. It was brought out in this group that we can be more effective by (1) Becoming much more disciplined, personally, in worship, simple living, use of time, etc.; (2) Participating in cells; (3) Working on concrete problems in our own communities. The pacifist way of life is the way of love. It takes more intelligence than the other way. Pacifism must have answers to specifies, be revolutionary. give people grave concern or uneasy consciences. We must become Christian evangels—integrated. committed, dynamic, revolutionary.

Other highlights of the conference were the banquet, held in the basement of the University Friends Church on Sunday morning.

Although the weather brought complications, the conference was felt to have been outstanding in the earnest and sincere searching on the part of the individuals.

Those attending the conference expressed a desire to have another next year. News of this will bo published when it is developed.

Bulldogs To Meet Giants

Baker, Ottawa To Meet Canines

Coach Hardacre’s Bulldogs will invade giant's land as they tour east this weekend to meet two of the conference's strongest net aggregations. They will clash with the Ottawa Braves Friday night and stay in Eastern Kansas, to meet Baker at Baldwin City Saturday night.

The Ottawa Braves, who currently have a good hold on the KCAC Championship ‘again, hold a previous 59 to 40 decision over the Bulldogs. The Braves seem to present a well-rounded team in Kush, Turner, Tiegreen, and Musgrave who will need plenty of watching by the Bulldog Red and Whites. Each of the above four have been high point man for the Braves on one occasion or another.

The Baker Wildcats also possess a previous decision over the Bulldogs; however they had to pull through a close first half to take the game 47 to 37. However, from all accounts they seem to have improved since then as was evidenced by the fact that the champion Ottawa Braves narrowly squaked the rampaging Wildcats 53 to 52.

Baker presents a team of no singular stars, but shows extremely well-balanced reserve strength which makes the Wildcat rough to beat in the close going.

Big Jack Smith of Emporia was burning the laces with five field goals and seven from the charity line for 17 points. Lyle Goering was high for the Bulldogs with nine points.

Captilizing on free throws. Peters was high for the evening with 19 points. Newton’s big Lanoy Lo-ganbill, center, could score only 12 points before he went out of the game on fouls to be the Graymaroons high point man.

We often hear of the many times when the dopesters were badly beaten, but the fact remains that the majority of times the dope is still pretty accurate. So with that in mind let’s look into some of the statistics of the league this year and see whether we can find out why the teams occupying top positions deserve or do not deserve to be there.

The following statistics were compiled on the basis of Kansas Conference standings as of February 5. Kansas Wesleyan has the most efficient offense according to points per game with a 64, point average while the leading Otta-wans follow close behind with 62. Our own Bulldogs have the dubious honor of the slowest offense with a 39-point per game average. Ottawa and Kansas Wesleyan both have 48-point defensive averages while Baker and McPherson both have 49-point averages however Bethel defensive aggregation takes the counter honors with a low 42-point average. This definitely points to the fact that the problem with the McPherson team is only offensively since the defense averages up fine.

Kansas Wesleyan takes honor again with the high average margin of 20 points per game over Ottawa 18 point average which is another reason why I’m still picking Kansas Wesleyan over the Ot-tawans in their next battle which will undoubtedly be for the big spot, McPherson averages losing by 10 points, the average score

of all the Conference games of the Bulldogs so far this year being 39 to 49 in favor of the opponents.

Incidentally, the average margin of all games played in the Kansas Conference so far this season is five points and the average score is 53 to 4 8.

Games with conference schools this weekend:    

Friday—College of Emporia at Kansas Wesleyan. Sterling at Bethany. McPherson at Ottawa.

Saturday—Tabor at Bethel, McPherson at Baker.

When the end of the season nears and the seniors begin to think of playing their last game for their old school, our thoughts more or less as a reflex turn to all-star squads. So far. I’m sure of only two nominations for that honor, and it so happens that neither of these boys are seniors. They are Lanoy Loganbill, a freshman on the Bethel team at center, and Harold Pounds, a junior from Kansas Wesleyan.

Other good performances so far In my opinion were Charlies Fiffe, Kansas Wesleyan; Gene Anderson, Kansas Wesleyan:    Jack

Smith, Emporia; and Musgrave, Ottawa.
