The Real Issue
By Desmond W. Bittinger
2. The Faculty A short time ago I wrote under the shove heading saying that the thing I liked most, about McPherson College was her students. In this second column I should like to say that I also like the faculty or McPherson College.
There can be no college unless there are students. Likewise, there can be no college without teachers. Socrates gathered his students about him and went walking. He taught them down by the sen or in the porches of the public buildings.
Jesus, the greatest teacher of all, gathered his students about him and they likewise Journeyed.
He taught them along the sea shore and in the winding paths which Jed through the farmlands and across the hilltops. One of the greatest sermons was preached on a mountain and his great commission was issued from a mountain-top.
Buildings are more important
As We Look Back
It was suggested to the Spectator editors that the following soft of column be run in the school paper. The editors, however, were hesitant to do so, but finally decided to do it in this issue.
It is the editors request that you. the reader, let us know how you like the column; if there is sufficient interest we will continue to choose from the old copies of the Spectator items of interest and publish them.

housing of laboratories and class-now since we need them for the rooms, hut the significant relationship still continues to be that of student and teacher.
I like McPherson's teachers because they are willing to work at sacrificial salaries for the great cause in which they believe: They have a love for their students, for the principles of Christianity and of liberal education, and a great faith in what their students can become.
Their love for students, their faith in them, and their dedication to the high purposes of education help to make them great teachers. They vary in their methods and perhaps in their effectiveness, but their purposes are noble and their dedication is clear. Their rewards are not monetary hut the satisfaction of seeing youth develop.
What, do I like about McPherson College?
I like her teachers.

From Kansas to Korea in six easy, month-long lessons. Only in the Army could one achieve this ambition (?) so easily. I have been reminded countless times that i've never bad it so good but I wasn't aware that I wanted it so good. However. I'm here and you readers aren't so give a listen. So far you have heard the ugly side of the Korea story but I shall try to present a more enlightened side of the same story.
Although there are many miles between Kansas and Korea, the weather is somewhat the same. Yesterday it snowed but today it was nice and pleasantly warm. Changable; just like the Army and Kansas. It makes a native Kansan almost at home. I have seen some black Kansas nights but I've never seen them as consistently black as they are here. A flashlight is a must.
The town we are located in at the present time is named Andong. It is almost directly above Taegu. Andong used to he quite large with a population of a reported 300,000 people. The only building standing is the Catholic Church, the rest being demolished and destroyed by bombs and fire. It is a study in itself to observe these Koreans; their mode of life, their customs. My knowledge of their customs is limited however, as the only tiling I take very much interest in is when I get out of the Army. It is not possible to be in Korea and not know something of their mode of life though. The Korean farmers can be seen in the morning after a ruin walking single file along the road, hands clasped behind their backs, wearing their white robes and black "bird cage" hats. Their mission is to look over the “Chop-Chop”, (rice). These hats are very peculiar looking and, because of their heighth, offer a perfect target for an American G1 with snowball throwing aspirations. The women, of course, do a large share of the work. When traveling, the Korean woman carries the burden in her arms, on her back, and on her head while obediently following her- husband. The husband is comparing his chop-chop with the other farmers chop-chop. (They would almost remind one of a Kansas wheat farmer).
The dwellings they live in are, for the most part, made of mud and straw. The walls are just dried mud hut the roof is thatched in such a way that it could well be deemed a work of art. The roof is held together by straw ropes, criss-crossed in decorative designs. A lot of these little huts are set against a scenery that is unmatch-ed in the United States. I’ve never seen such magnificent beauty, a beauty that sobers even the wildest of us and makes us wonder just how such a country could be the scene of a terrible and destructive war. We encountered many breath-taking sights in the mountain passes between here and Pusan, the port city where we landed. It is amazing the way these people utilize every available inch of ground for rice paddies.
While Korea may be a more beautiful country than Japan, (although I didn’t get the chance to see much of the latter country) there are two reasons that I liked Japan the hotter. One is more or less of a selfish attitude but I didn't exactly relish the idea of coming 10 Korea and possibly combat: and the other is that I was close to Tokyo. We were located in Camp Palmer, about 30 miles out of the city. I got the chance to visit Tokyo several times however. The scars of war have healed almost completely and it is a very busy city. The Japanese people are said to be the cleanest of the Orientals but I question this. The soldier is a very well paid person in Japan and it’s possible to purchase the famous and beautiful kimona as well as other articles at a very low price. Even though the prices were very low. we all enjoy arguiug and haggling over the "outragous" pride until the proprietor would say. “You say how much, Joe," and then, we could almost buy the article at our own price. The rate of exchange' in Japan is 360 yen for an American dollar and in Korea it’s 4,000 won to the dollar.
There are several recent Macol-lege students in this unit. A lot of you will remerber Charles Van-cil, Donald Van Dorn, and Clarence Seever and Larry Treder. Newly made Pfc. Charlie Vancil is an asset to our communications Section: M/Sgt. Clarence Seever is our Intelligence NCO: Sgt. Don Van Dorn is Surveyor: Sgt. Larry Treder is Personnel Sergeant. My official capacity is that of Message Center pencil-pusher.
While some of us may have been dissatisfied with Macollege.
I dare say that the "school on the hill” looks pretty good to us now.
Perhaps we will see the day when
we can take up again our interupt-ed pursuit of knowledge in the halls of McPherson College. — Garth Ellwood

In his King Features Syndicate column “These Days” George E. Sokolsky quoted the noted English journalist Wickham Steed as saying that “the whole communist conception of relations with the non-communist world is one of ‘cold’ or ‘hot' warfare.”
Steed follows up with a statement to the effect that communists either by “cold” 'or "hot” methods means to prepare the rest of the world for Kremlin strategy, or communist dictatorship of the whole world, which the Kremlin holds as eventual.
Sokolsky takes over where Steed leaves off and says that the real issue between communism and non-communism is not over the division of wealth or “who owns what. He claims the real issue to be one of mental and moral slavery to the state as against freedom in the same.
Asks Mr. Sokolsky, “Is he (man) to be a free creature, exercising free will, free choice, at his own risk and for his own benefit, or is he a creature to be used by those who have the physical power to use him—that is, shall all of us become slaves to those who can use the state to master us?”

7 Countries Represented By, 14 Foreign Students
This year, McPherson College has the largest number of students from other lands that she has ever had. There are fourteen foreign students. representing seven different countries, enrolled here.
Those students have represented our school on more than seventy deputation trips. They have attended many camps and conferences, have presented programs before schools. P. T. A. groups, churches, hospitals, conferences, and in the many similar situations in which they have participated. In all of these instances they have contributed to other people, a groat positive influence. We should be proud of the good will they have spread about the college.
The trusees, during the recent trustee meeting, approved an expanded scholarship plan for International students. This will assure McPherson College of an even greater international representation in the years ahead.
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 “What do you think of the Macam-pus Girls?" The question for next week will be "What do you think of Macampus Boys?"
The names of the contributors will not appear this week for obvious reasons.
They are okay. I found mine here.
McPherson girls represent a pretty good mixture and are better classed, better balanced, and more sociable than average.
On the average they are swell, Macampus girls are a good class of girls.
Macampus girls are friendly, serious minded--at the right tim-es, yet they are always ready for a good time.
Macampus girls are a fine group of young girls. The dorm girls are sure full of fun and mischief.
I think we need more good-looking girls.
On the average they are okay, hut there should be more of them.
They are well-behaved. They don't smoke or drink and will make a great improvement on our future society.
Some are very good girls, but I wonder why they came to college.
As we look over the campus we see a group of nice girls. They are very sociable and couldn't he any better.
As a general rule they come from high class homes with a good moral, background.
I think they have high standards. They like a good time, but they know what good clean fun is.
William (Bill) P. Thompson, class of ’39. has been recently ad mitted into partnership of the Wichita law firm of Hershberger, Patterson, and Jones. Bill has been associated with the firm since 1946.

Three More Snobs Added To Russell Lynes List
ACP—Although Russell Lynes was amazingly thorough in his naming and describing the vari-ous types, of snobs, the Daily Athenaeum, student newspaper of West Virginia University, felt some campus snobs might be added to the list. Here are a few of the Athenaeum’s candidates:
“The Scholarly Snob. He regards all students who spend anytime on pursuits other than study as immature. This type is easily recognized, by the frequency with which he can be heard to mutter. What do they come to college for anyway?’"
“The Socially Active Snob, who regards anyone who finds it necessary to spend an. occasional evening in his room as a barbarian."
"The Grades-Don't-Mean-Any-tbing-Snob. This is the largest subdivision in the Campus Snob classification, it seems, and is composed of those who study when they have absolutely nothing else to do. Somehow the majority of them make passing grades. At the end of each semester they can be heard to remark philosophically. 'Oh well, grades don't mean anything, anyway.' "
Over a period of 15 years a steady increase of Macollege graduates being enrolled in Bethany Seminary was reported to the Trustees of Macollege by Dr. Burton Metzler, Director of Religious: Life.
In 1936-37 two graduates were enrolled in Bethany, while 29 represented Mac in 1950-51. Following in rapid succession were the years 1946-47, 1944-45, 1945 46 with 26, 25 and 24 graduates respectively.
These statistics are in conflict, however, with the number of student ministers enrolled in Macol-lege during the same years. The year 1948-49 was highest with an enrollment of 43 student ministers. Following in succession were the years 1947-48,1946-47, with 41 and 39 students respectively.
Hence, we note that of the 27, 39, 41 and 43 student ministers enrolled in Macollege for the respective years 1945-46, 1946-47, 1947-48, 1948-49, only 24, 26, 20 and 19 graduates enrolled in Bethany Seminary the same year.
However, this past year found 29 students enrolled in Bethany as over against 21 student ministers representing the college.
In 1947-48 there were 287 students enrolled In Bible classes with a percent of regular enrolled students being 68 percent. The year 1943-44 found 84 percent of the students taking Bible classes with only 119 students.
Dr. Mauler says. “It would be interesting to show trends in the activities or the SCA and the rising and falling of a warm spiritual life, of a high ethical idealism and a firm commitment to Christ on the faculty and students."
This, however, is impossible since statistics are not available.
