Bittinger To Be Innaugrated In Ceremonies Monday

Query Shows It’s Cheaper At Macollege

Public relations department bulletins to trustees show that Macollege provides a $1,350 scholarship to all its students.

Surprised? Read on.

"It is the policy of McPherson College to keep the expenses as low as possible. The tuition costs at McPherson is $8 per hour. A survey of college catalogs gives a comparison with other schools. Baker $11, Bethel $12, College of Emporia $10, Kansas Wesleyan $8, Ottawa $8, Bridgewater $10, Elizabethtown $12, Juniata $12, Manchester $10.50, LaVerne $12, Friends $14, and Bethany $7.

“Room per semester at these schools costs from $40 to $80. McPherson College charges $45. All other fees and charges are in about the same relationship.

"This survey of 19 colleges shows that the cost of education at McPherson College is less than all but three of the 19 checked. Of these three, two were junior colleges.

"At the present time any student who attends McPherson College pays only 65 percent of the cost of staying in school. It is the desire of the administration to raise the additional funds each year so that college education can continue at a low cost to students.

"The additional cost of your college education comes from various sources. The vast majority of it comes from persons or groups connected with the church of the Brethren. Additional funds come from non-Brethren Alumni, the townspeople of McPherson, and other interested persons.

“Several individuals spend the majority of their time trying to assure the college that it can continue to serve its youth in such an inexpensive manner. The president, the Alumni Secretary, the director of capital gifts, and the director of public relations spend considerable time working to further this cause.

"The best workers in the field of public relations, however, are the satisfied students from the McPherson "family”. A word of appreciation from a happy student is worth many words of staff personnel. The person who talks with pride about bis school is doing a good job of public relations. The $1,350 scholarship is given with a good spirit by those who feel that the future of the world is with the Christian youth of today. May it be accepted by all with a spirit of dedication to the name great work.

High School Gives “Men Are Like Streetcars”

The senior class is sponsoring the three-act comedy which is the story of a younger sister's plans to get her older sister married.

Abraham Lincoln

It wasn’t the color of his eyes or the quality of his hair that people remembered. After all he had quite ordinary features and would more be taken for ugly than handsome.

He never stood as straight as the melodramatists do when they get shot on stage, but he was tall and not without dignity.

Nobody seemed, to mind his cheap, homespun suits or his friends who spat tobacco on the floor. Somehow people felt safe when he was around.. He was like an extra quilt or a second cup of coffee.

People looked at him and thought hard. He was a kind of walking New Year’s resolution.

The man himself was great. Success came to him.

Lincolns are all about us. little guys that are great without being successful. You can’t say its American or English or anything else to be one of them. They don’t come in colors or sizes except for their hearts being generously large.

We have our models, and magnanimity can be con-tageous.

ground or geographic locale. Students from the eastern states Quickly fitted into this and everywhere there was a relaxed, friendly feeling.

I appreciated also the informality of the classroom. If students wished to ask questions, they did not hesitate to ask them. If the question seemed too simple and other students laughed at Its simplicity, the questioner only wait ed until he had an opportunity to laugh at some other student's question. The faculty seemed eager to he on informal, friendly terms with their students. They met them not only in the classrooms, but they were pleased to have them in their homes or to go with them on journeys to give dep utation programs or to attend plays cr to engage in athletic activities. It was a little surprising at first to see the jeans and the great variety of color which students sported, but very shortly this seemed insignificant and the smile, upon the face, the twinkle in the eye. and the individual personality were all that counted.

Once in awhile the students got into pranks. Some of them were a hit juvenile. Hut in the main the pranks were not vindictive nor aimed at any particular group. It was possible to laugh together about them and then forget them. Occasionally one or two students would become confused and lead into some prank which was destructive and harmful. Quickly student pressures would bring them into line, since damage to college buildings or to the person ality of any college student or faculty member was damage to all of us. It is pleasant to live in an environment like that at McPherson College.

What do I like about McPherson College?

Above everything else I like Its students.

What I Like About Macollege

From time to time I would like to write a short column on what I like about McPherson College. I would be happy to flee students and faculty, and people from over the area where the Spectator is read write op the same topic.

When we talk together about the things that we like it is at least as helpful as when we talk about the things that we do not like. Whereas I do not like everything about McPherson College there are many things about it which I do like. In this first column I shall write about one thing only.

1. I like her students,

When I first, came to McPherson College ten years ago. I was attracted by the ease and informality of the students. I thought likely it was because they came from the wide open spaces of the great west. It has been the history of this open country that men do not need to be introduced to each other to know each other. Every man is willing to be every other, man’s friend until he is convinced that there are reasons why he should not be.

This spirit of informal friendliness among the student body was immediately attractive to me. I had just come from the large campus of the University of Pennsylvania which is hemmed in on every side by city buildings. I likewise had spent some time on the University of Illinois campus. There under the tall oak trees, friendliness was a little easier, but at McPherson it seemed easiest of all. Here I found students from 20 or 30 scattered states. Sometimes they round delight in kidding each other about the stales from which they came, but over-all was a genuine appreciation of the individual which overshadowed his back-

Official Student Publication of McPherson College, McPherson, Kansas, Published every Friday during the school year by the Student Connell.

What Ho You Think?

The opinions expressed in this column are those of the contributors, and not necessarily those of either McPherson College or the Spectator.

The question for this week is "Do you think that people are as polite now as they used to be?"

No, People are in too big of a hurry to be polite, and they have other interests in mind. They do know better, but they do not show It.—Dale Oltman

Yes, 'I think that people are as polite, but there is a change in emphasis. The manners and rules of etiquette are more informal than they used to he.—Gene Bechtel

Yes, Those who are polite are really sincere about It. Politeness used to be on the surface only. However, those who are impolite are equally sincere.—Max McAul-


People arc not as formal as they used to be, but I do not know what to say about politeness itself. The stage when men used to offer a woman his seat on a bus disappeared with the war.—Donna Sooby'    

Yes, I think that people respect personalities more now than they did in previous year.—Irven Stern

No, Men are not as polite as they formerly were, because women are more independent and therefore do not appreciate courtesies extended to them as much as formerly.—Bill Sheets

Yes, I think that people are more natural now, but that does not mean that they are not as polite as they were in the past. There is not such a formal polit-ness, but it is more sincere.— Eugene Neff

Yes, in certain localities they are polite considering the current age we live in. Some politeness has been lost due to modernization.— Bob Beau

Yes and no. A lot of people are more polite, but many are too busy or in too much of a rush to be polite. -Wilbur Bastin

Yes, I cannot give any concrete reasons or examples of the changes, but the general mood of people Indicates their measure of politeness.—Bill Daggett .

When it is necessary to be formally polite, then people can be courteous to each other according to all the rules. Exact adherence to rules and practice is not so exacting in small groups, but still people are polite to each other. even though it is in a different way.—Orva Willems

Some People are. and others are not.—Mickey Akers

Harvard Deans Advise Pre-meds About Courses

Cambridge, Mass. (I. P.)—Premedical students at Harvard College have been reassured that concentration in scientific subjects is neither required nor preferred by medical schools.

Harvard Medical School deans Dr. George P. Berry and Dr. Reginald Fitz have outlined the following “proper minimum” of courses for medical school.: a minimum year of physics, a year of biology, full year courses or their equivalents in organic and inorganic chemistry, qualitative or quantitative analysis, and a more advanced half year course in biology.

Aside from the physics course no mathematics is required, but Dean Berry said that calculus would be helpful. Concentrators in non-scientiric fields were advised to try for honors instead of taking more sciences.

It was also pointed out that the advanced college biology course should not cover material which would be taken in medical school. Courses avoiding duplication are comparative anatomy, genetics, and embryology.

It’s A Great Life...

By Lowell Hoch

As this article is written, the wind is blowing rather strong and the snow is falling in swirling sheets of white. After such a pretty weekend, it is rather hard to adjust to the cold.

I wish to convey my profound appreciation to that student of Professor Hess’ English class who referred to my column us an example of '’fine’’ writing. However. ,in view of the argument presented.

I feel that I have failed to live up 'to the rigid standards of such work. In a few foolish words. "It ain't supposed to be no such-a-thlng.”!!/??'

Six Mac students piled in the Oltman Chevrolet and Journeyed to Holmesville and Beatrice in the state of Nebraska last Friday. Yvonne Birkin, LaVerne Burger, Harvey Miller, Berwyn Oltman, Kenneth Evans, and Lowell Hoch were the ones making that trip. The weather was fine, the hospitality wonderful and the rest of the scenery. WOW!! Berwyn took up the art of hiking while there. His walks were not lonely though. He had some very nice company. .. Evans attended sight school one night. You should have seen the teacher.

That little old flu bug was bothering several of the Vet Housing hoys Tuesday and Wednesday Of this .'week. You sure can feel rocky for a spell.

Norman Brammel went home with Don Hoch over the weekend. They went to see K. State and Missouri ploy basketball Saturday night Roland Kesler made one of his regular trips to Salina last weekend. The Tripple P’s remain on top of the Intra-mural hone pile along with the Gal's Guys at the time of this writing. They meet Thursday night to decide who is best.

It is odd how an auto horn affects certain people. For example, a Ford pulls up and honks. From one to three extra occupants are obtained. A Plymouth honks three times and yet only one is sought.

Wildcats, Braves Next Canine Foes

Tonight and Saturday night, the McPherson College Bulldogs under Coach Chalmer "Woody” Woodard will invade the home courts of the eastern members of the Kansas Conference. Tonight the Bulldogs will meet the Baker Wildcats at Baldwin, and tomorrow night they move on to Ottawa to meet the Braves.

Young Bulldogs Sport 11-1 Record

The McPherson College “B“ Basketball team is compiling a record to be proud of, this season The Young Bulldogs are currently sporting a record of 11 wins and a lone defeat.    

The lone defeat came at the hands of the Bethany seconds, 5250. However, these two teams have met on three other occasions, with the Bulldogs “B's” coming out on top in all three of these games, winning by as much as 13 and 14 points.

The greatest margin of victory for the "B’s" was in their game with C. of E. when they won by 31 points, 68-37. Their smallest winning margin was in the second meeting with Kansas Wesleyan, when they won by only a single point, 46-45.

With only three games left, the Bulldog “B's” have a good chance of finishing the season with only the one loss.

Men like Bob Kerr. Paul Hei-debrecht, Tom O'Dell, Bob Peel, Harvey Pauls, Carl Metsger, and Eddie Ball have been consistant performers in the preliminary games this year. These men have all been gaining valuable experi-ence that will come in handy come next season.

The Seasons Record:

Bulldog "B’s" 48 Central 38. Bulldog “B's" 70 Tabor 57. Bulldog "B's" 47 Bethany 37. Bulldog "B's" 65 Bethany 51. Bulldog "B s" 61 K W U 39. Bulldog "B's” 73 Tabor 64. Bulldog "B's" 68 C. of E. 37. Bulldog "B’s" 46 K W U .45. Bulldog "B’s" 50 Bethany 52. Bulldog "B's” 48 Bethel 43. Bulldog "B's" 63 Bethany 46. Bulldog "B's” Totals —710. Opponents Totals —575.

Bulldog "B’s" average score—59.1 Opponents average score—4 7.9.

Most Thought provoking headlines department. . .

From the Ursinus Weekly, Col-legeville, Pa.—

"Prognostication Shows Alteration of Future Strife in College Life".

The Bulldogs will be striving to avoid the fate that the Bethany Swedes suffered last weekend when they made their eastern swing. The Swedes came out on the short end of the score in their games with both Baker and Otta wa.

To avoid a like fate, the Bulldogs will have to rind ways of stopping big 6' 5" Ken Sterns of Baker and Neal Wyrick and Dudley Giese of Ottawa. These timber toppers are the spark plugs of their respective teams, and opponents have found it next to impossible to hold their scoring down to a reasonable figure. Sterns has the highest per game average of the trio. He Is currently producing points at the rate of 19.3 per outing. Wyrick and Giese have identical averages of 15.6, which combined would account for 31.2 of the Braves points each game. How ever, Sterns is more than less a lone wolf on the Baker team, as he gets very little consistant help from his teammates.

Coach “Woody" Woodard has come up with another of his new twists, and a thing which is seldom seen in Kansas Conference basketball circles. This new twist is a zone defense which proved to be very effective against Friends last week, and which “Woody" hopes will greatly hinder the ef forts of the big boys of Baker and Ottawa.

Ottawa has been a high scoring club all season, but it was not until recently that Baker began to show signs of high scoring potential. Coach Don Meek's Braves have been rolling along at a 66 point per game pace while holding their opponents to an average of 58 points. Baker has been averaging 53 points per game while their opponents were scoring 59 points per outing. The Bulldogs have been scoring an average of 67 points while holding their opponents to 65 points. These figures include only conference games.

This will be the first meeting of the Bulldogs and the Wildcats this season. However. The Bulldogs have met the Ottawa Braves in McPherson, the Braves coming out on top in that meeting 70-66. Gie-se and Wyrick were a thorn in the side of the Bulldogs all evening in the first game. Each of these big boys tossed in 24 points in that game, and each contributed a basket in the final seconds of play to provide the winning margin.

With wins over both Baker and Ottawa, the Bulldogs could move into third place, with the aid of a win over Bethany by Bethel. But. should they lose both these games. the Bulldogs would sink into sixth spot, with little hope of recovering.

Gals Guys Drop Imps, Tied With PPP’s For Lead

The leadership in Intra-mural basketball has narrowed down to two teams. The Gals Guys and Triple P's are currently leading the pack, with records of six wins and a lone defeat.

The Imps of Satan were knocked from a tie for the top spot by Gals Guys, Monday night. Triple P's staved off a determined bid by the Preying Eight, to maintain their tie with the Gals Guys. The Preying Eight had knocked the Jo Fo's out of first place last week, but failed in their attempt to do the same to Triple P's.

Don Smith of the Imps continues to lead the individual scoring with a total of 127 points in 8 games for an average of 15.9 points per game. Jerry Neher moved from fourth to second this week, while Wareham dropped from second to fourth. Dean Coughenour maintained his third place standing, and J. D. Pote kept a firm hold on fifth place.

Kansas Conference

Braves Keep Lead, KWU Close Behind

The Bethany Swedes made a disasterous road trip last weekend, as they suffered defeats at the hands of the two eastern members of the Kansas Conference. Baker conquered the "Terrible Swedes” Friday night 57-51, and Saturday night Ottawa added Insult to injury as they slipped past the Swedes 72-61.

These losses dropped the Swedes from a tie for the runnerup spot to third place, while the Kansas Wesleyan Coyotes were tightening their grip on second place with a 55-50 win over Bethel.

Earlier in the week Bethel handed C. of B. Its sixth straight conference setback'71-45. Ottawa had also beaten Baker 68-48 earlier last week.

In non-conference activity, Kan-sas Wesleyan defeated Ft. Hays State for the second time this season 57-52, and McPherson whipped the Friends U. Quakers 63-48. in the only Bulldog activity of the week.

Canines Nip Quakers 63-48

Couch "Woody" Woodard's Bulldog basketballers stepped out of the Kansas Conference to meet the Friends University Quakers at Wichita last Thursday nlght. The Bulldogs had a fairly easy time of it as they turned in their ninth win of the season 63-48.

The Bulldogs were in command of the situation all the time with the Quakers never threatening seriously. McPherson led 14-9 at the end of the first quarter, 30-16 at the half and 41-28 at the end of the third stanza.

Coach Woodard had Ids Ilull-dogs in a tight zone defense that made it tough for the Quakers even to shoot.

Wayne Blickenstaff led the Bulldog scoring with 15 points. Loren "Red Pupple” Blickenstaff had 14, and Gene Smith had 11, Jones, of the Quakers, topped all scorers with 16, and Hudgins had 13 for the Quakers.
