Noble Cain Directs Choral Fest

Community, Comity, College Invited To Participate

Tonight at 8 p. m. in the McPherson Community Auditorium the McPherson Choral Festival will present a massed chorus under the direction of Mr. Noble Cain, distinguished composer, arranger, and conductor.

Mr. Cain won national prominence with his organization of the Senn High School Chorus of 600 voices in Chicago, and later with his Chicago A Cappella Choir which achieved perfection in choral artistry in their many performances throughout the nation.

Mr. Cain was connected with the National Broadcasting Company from 1832 to 1939. During which time he was the producer and director of all choral activities in the central division with headquarters in Chicago. During the time he was connected with the network he presented over 2,000 broadcasts.

In 1939 he resigned from NBC to go entirely into the field of educational music and has since traveled extensively throughout America, lecturing at music clinics, guest-conducting for festivals of schools and churches, and writing extensively.

During the first World War.

Mr. Cain was a naval air ensign and since then has continued his enthusiasm for flying. His other hobby is chess.

Mass Chorus Participates

Approximately 200 singers will participate in the festival. Those choirs participating will include music group from surrounding areas. McPherson College choirs, and local church choirs.

Prof. Donald R. Frederick is chairman of the Festival Committee.

No attempt will be made to put the singers in a specific type of dress as the various choirs join together.

Cain Visits Campus

Mr. Cain arrived in McPherson Wednesday, and held a rehearsal of the entire group that night and Thursday night. He practiced with all the college choirs Thursday afternoon. He also spoke in chapel Thursday.

College Geologists Bring Back Scales,

Vertebrae, Rocks

During May 2 and 3 the geology class and Dr. Mohler visited various points in western Kansas of interest to the class.

Monday, the class visited the Hays museum which contains many varieties of fish and sea-serpent fossils found in western Kansas. The guide, George Sternberg, has devoted his life to hunting fossils for large museums in the East.

The night was spent in Quinter.

The group visited the chalk beds, spending most of their time hunting fossils. Some of the specimens brought back were sharks' teeth and vertebrae, scales, and rocks. These famous chalk beds extend over most of western Kansas and into Nebraska and Oklahoma.

All the food for the trip was prepared by the two women in the class, Bernice Loshbaugh, and Rachel Longanecker.

Others who went were: Royce Beam, Wilbur Beattie, Wendell Burkholder, Charles Connell.

Marion Frantz, Ken Hanson. Ernest Hoffa, John Klieber, Royce Loshbaugh, Harvey Maust, Clarence McDonald, Wilbur Moffett.

Stanley Sargent. Julius Steele.

Gordon Stutzman, Charles Thar-rington, John Ward, Orrin Wolf, and Mort Johnson.

Graduate Exams Are Now Available

Seniors who took the graduate record exams may now see the exam results which are located in the office of Dean Luther B. Warren.

The norms for the college are also available according to the Dean and each senior will be able to tell where he stands with his class by studying these norms.

The graduate record tests were given to only a portion of the students in the senior class.

‘That Age Old Frustration’ Is Always Called Love

Ah. sweet spring .... the time when a young man's thoughts lightly turn to the subject that the girls have been thinking about all winter long.

The above picture is a good example of the nostalgia caused by this beautiful weather. The flowers in bloom, the birds chirping, balmy spring weather ... ah, bliss!

Spring has made its welcome entrance Into the fair campus, and fellows and girls are coupling off. grasping hands, and slowly exchanging looks similar to those exchanged by cows needing medical attention.

Almost any time of the day or evening couples can be seen strolling around, arm in arm, rediscovering the magic of the age old frustration . . . LOVE.

Of course, its always interesting to follow this spring epidemic, trace its pattern of contagion. It usually pops out one fine spring day, when a cute coed swishes by in one of those cute spring dresses. He, our hero that is, begins to notice how cute she is, so he suggested that they drop in the Dog House or the Inn for a coke. The

By Carmina

conversation buzzes along, and before he knows it he has asked her for a Saturday night date. Another confirmed bachelor hit the dust . . . he's got the fever.

Soon the disease spreads and their friends too are exposed and fall by the wayside.

What is the end, when will they recover?? Possibly never, for a good percentage may proceed into the most dangerous stage, engagement, and finally succumbing to marriage.    

Others may part at the end of school, go their separate ways, and slowly regain their senses thus affecting a complete cure.

Of course, we realize that this won't happen to you for you are positive this is it. It must be real, sez you, for think of all you have in common and think of all those popular songs that must have been written just for you ! ! !

It is this feeling that gives the campus a new life in the spring. The whole place is alive with romance and excitement, and everyone will agree that it is love and love alone that makes spring the nost marvelous season of the year!

Guest Editor

Our Education, What Is It?

This week’s guest editor Is the acting Dean of the college. Dean Luther B. Warren came to McPherson College from the Central Missouri State College at Warrens-burg, Missouri, where he was a guidance teacher and the visiting professor of Education.

Prior to his position at War-rensburg, Dean Warren had been connected with the Veterans Administration as head of the advisement center. Another unusual Job held by the Dean was his work at a large greenhouse where he held the ostentacious position of "head temperature man.”

Dean Warren's editorial on education follows.

Education starts at least us early as birth and lasts at least until death. The best education is highly individual. The value of the individual has been stressed many times.

Jesus used several occasions to teach the worth of the individual. Once as he was discussing the de-tails of the Father’s accounting system, he said that even “the hairs of your head are numbered." The intricacies of such a system are unfathomable to humans, and I shall allow it to rest. Another time he said that not even a sparrow falls to the ground without your Father, then he continues by stating that “ye are worth many sparrows.”

The individual has mattered much to all groat teachers. This is illustrated well by Socrates, Pertinent questions passed from pupil to teacher, and from teacher to pupil. Pupils learned to think, and to answer their own problem—

Can We Afford A Frontal Attack?

How many times have we here on Mac campus pointed to ourselves and said “look at McPherson College, we do not have any race prejudices because we have several students on our campus that are non-Caucasian.” We here pride ourselves very much because we are able to put ourselves up as shining lights in a problem that is very dark with hatreds and distrusts.

At practically every summer camp we find included in the program somewhere a discussion on race relations. They truly are discussion because they accomplish nothing else. People talk and talk and talk and then immediately go out and forget the beautiful words that they said during the discussion. What a waste of time and effort these gab fests are. Why not do something practical and something that will bring results rather than just talk.

Recently a small group on campus met and decided that some active step must be taken if we here at McPherson are to continue to point to ourselves as a school without prejudices.

We all say o. k. but what can we do that would be a practical and definite step toward meriting our praise of our college.

It has been suggested that for one thing we should encourage more non-Caucasians to make our campus their college home. For instance instead of having only a few we should encourage a larger number to come here. If need be, we might effect an exchange student program with the large non-Caucasian universities like Howard University of Washington, D. C., and Hampton Institute.

An exchange student could pay only the tuition of the school that he or she was from and thus no hardship financially would be evoked on these exchange students.

For instance if the tuition at Howard U. was only $5 per college hour then the student from Howard would pay only $5 per college hour taken at McPherson. The same plan would work with the McPherson student attending Howard. Instead of paying the $5 he would pay the regular $8 per hour as charged by the college here. Also the money remitted by the students would be returned to the exchange college. This way financial hardships would be lessened.

Another program that might be worked out would be to initiate a program of exchange professors. The professor’s salary would be handled the same way that the student’s tuition was. Of course we realize that this part of the program would undoubtedly meet with more opposition because it would involve entire families of those married professors. But McPherson has enough un-married teachers that this problem certainly would not bring this plan to a halt unless the faculty would be unwilling to accept this part of a exchange program.

We here at McPherson have a duty to do toward the suppressed races of the country. We feel that the plan which we have mentioned could be worked out satisfactorily if the college is really interested in furthering race relations between the peoples of the world.

It is up to us. What are we going to do? Will we act or talk some more?

What About This Summer?    

Have you decided what to do with your spare hours this summer? How many of you have ever thought of helping other people while having a fine vacation of your own? Many students this summer will be doing exactly that. These many students will be working in work camps across the nation helping the underprivileged and yet while they are doing that they will be enjoying a real vacation.

We believe there are many students on the McPherson campus that could fit into such a program as is being pushed by the Western Region of the Church of the Brethren. Miss Ruth Early, acting BSC and Peace Secretary for this region, has information in her office concerning the many opportunities that wait only for the taking by young people from every walk of life.

One of the most interesting work camps that is being sponsored by the regional office is the camp located at Rocky Ford, Colorado. The young people that attend this work camp will have the opportunity to work with fam-, ilies of Mexican and Indian'origin. The work with this group could easily develop into a term paper in a sociology course for next term. But the bigger aspect of the experience would be the satisfaction that a camper would get when he or she realizes that he is dong a job that only a volunteer and dedicated person would or could do.

Three other camps here in the Western Region also have a certain lure in them. For instance one camp will be located at the Carver Center in Kansas City. There every Brethren should find a challenge because it will be in this camp that we will have an opportunity to become better acquainted with members of a suppressed race. It will certainly be an opportunity to help to better the relations between two different races.

Other camps in this region will be located in Wichita, Kansas, at the Orienta project and at Avery, Iowa.

If we are looking for a certain amount of travel, then we need only apply to the Elgin offices of the church. There we will find work camps in almost any section of the United States. Camps will test us as individuals as

to our emotional and physical stability. Each and every one of these camps are a challenge to us because they deal with human unfortunates who are people like ourselves but people that have not had the opportunities that we have had.

If you have not decided what to do with your summer yet, think seriously about one of these camps. Your summer can be very useful to yourself as well as to a community of underprivileged youngsters and adults.

Don't waste your summer. Make it count by serving humanity in one of the many service projects that the Church of the Brethren and other denominations are sponsoring this coming summer.

Don’t wait; decide now to help, serve, and grow.


One who becomes a teacher is sorely tempted to become so deeply involved in the intricacies of subject-matter that he forgets individuals. Most teaching has to be done in groups, or classes. But a good teacher still does highly individualistic teaching. Few teachers of recent years have excelled at that ns did William Heard Kilpatrick. Even though one was a member of a class of three figures, one fait as if he and Mr. Kilpatrick were conversing. There was a master teacher.

Teaching is difficult. Good teaching causes the student to make honest inquires and to grow. Nothing illustrates these things better than the following quotation from that great hook Principles of Edu cation by Chapman and Counts, Page 11.

Greeting his pupils, the master said:

What would you learn of me?

And the reply came:

How shall we care for our bodies?

How shall we rear our children?

How shall we work together?

How shall we live with our fel-lowmen?

How shall we play?

For what ends shall we live? . . .

And the teacher pondered these words, and. sorrow, was in his heart, for his own learning touched not these things.

Dogs Drop Close Game; To Meet Presbies May 11

The McPherson College baseball team lost a very competitive game to the Bethel Graymaroons. 10 to 9, at the Athletic Park diamond Monday, May 2. The McPherson base runners were not awake quite a few times, and Bethel's successful traps and pick-offs probably gave them the victory.

Lefty Koehn, Bethel's star pitcher, lasted the full period as he pitched a beautiful game. Coughenour started, the game for McPherson but lasted only two innings. Tolle replaced him to stay in for four innings, while Ramsey finished the game for McPherson.

The Graymaroons had a big inning in the second when errors and the sun which blinded the fielders on fly balls combined for six runs. Three more runs in the third and a lone run in the ninth scored all their points.

McPherson started a potential rally in the last of the ninth, but it fell short by the lone run.

Gene Arnold hit the largest bagger of the game with a triple, but Petefish led batters with a 3 for 5 average.

On Wednesday, May 11, the Bulldogs will Journey to Emporia and attempt to avenge an earlier defeat at the hands of the Presides. With more experience playing together, the Bulldogs should win over the Presbies.

Locker Chatter

Bethel College has announced an expansion in its physical education system with the hiring of an additional member to the couching staff. J. Millard- Fretz, formerly with the Wadsworth, Ohio, High School. Bob Tully remains as di-rector of physical education, along with Andy Dougins and Rudy Enns.

The Bethel Buffalo Barbecue which was held last Tuesday honoring as usual the senior letter-men from the neighboring towns. This year Jack Mitchell, Oklahoma's all-American quarterback, star of the 1949 Sugar Bowl Classic, was the feature speaker.

The Bethel coaching staff deserves an "A" for effort in sponsoring this yearly affair. It takes the place of McPherson's booster banquet; only doing it a little better. The unique outline of these everts always rates a lot of pub

From Ira

The McPherson College football team won the league championship in 1923. At that time all colleges in the state with the exception of Kansas University and Kansas State College at Manhattan were included in the Conference. There was strong competition, but the Bulldogs were determined; and the College and the city of McPherson were really proud of that

famous football team.

Two of the reasons why the Bulldogs were champions at that time were the Keim brothers, Dick and Stan, from Nampa, Idaho Since leaving McPherson College, these brothers have concerned themselves with farming and the meat packing business in Nampa. Dick Keim, a trustee of McPherson College, has concentrated his interests in polled milking shorthorn cattle. He has one of the beat milking shorthorn herds In America and is nationally known among breeders of this type of cattle.

On Wednesday. April 13, Dick and his wife boarded a plane at Nampa. Idaho, for Plainview, Texas, where Dick judged the milking shorthorn cattle at the Panhandle Plains Dairy Show. In addition to this judging assignment, Dick was the principal speaker at the milking shorthorn banquet held in connection with the show.

Dick represents an alumnus who made an enviable record while in college and who has been very successful in business after graduating. His loyalty to McPherson College has been continuous since his graduation in 1925. His son, Bob, will graduate from McPherson College with the class of 1949; and a daughter, Margaret, has taken work at the College. Incidentally Bob and Margaret are not the only children of Dick and

Minnie Keim. There are three others whom we hope to welcome to McPherson College after they have completed their high school work. George, a junior in the Nampa High School, should be able to make a contribution to McPherson College similar to the one his father Dick made when he was an all-conference guard on the championship team, of 1923. George, as a high school junior, was an all-state tackle, and we are looking forward to the time when this two-hundred-twenty-pound prospect from Idaho will enroll in McPherson College.

We wish to thank Dick Keim, of Nampa, Idaho, for the contribution which he has made and will continue to make to McPherson College,

The team average now stands at .309. The team has been at bat 337 times, scored 95 runs to their opponents 64 and has to its credit 104 hits.

The pitchers' score stands at two wins and two losses for D. Ramsey, two wins and one loss for Tolle, and two wins for Coughenour.
