The Spectator received "First Class" honor from the Associated Collegiate Press for first semester 1950-'51. Rowan Keim, sophomore English major, was editor-in-chief first semester.
College newspapers are rated by ACP as Fourth Class (no honors), Third Class (Fair), Second Class (good). First Class (excellent). All-American (superior). Frequency of publication and the school's enrollment are used to place the papers in groups of similar nature for the competition.
Only one paper in the group with the Spectator. Weekly papers published by colleges with an en-rollment loss than 500, was rated "All-American.” Twelve papers were rated "First Class."
"First Class" is the highest rating the Spectator has received at any time since records have been kept in the Spectator office.
College newspapers are criticized by the ACP on four points— news values and sources; newswriting and editing: headlines, typography and makeup: depart
ment pages and special features.
Criticisms and suggestions for improvment of the Spectator were listed in the scorebook which was received by Rowan Keim April 20.
Play Day Games Begin Friday Afternoon
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING HOUSEWORK FOR?" asks Booth (Wayne Zeigler) of Patricia (Sue Smith), as Mr. Lazarus (Dale Oltman) stares wide eyed with surprise.
Following is a synopsis and run down of the cast by director Roy McAuley:
MR. LAZARUS concerns a man who has figuratively come back from the dead. Years previous to the events of the play a Mr. Molloy and his bride are involved in a railroad accident. Mrs. Molloy never secs him again and he is listed as one of those losing their lives In the wreck.
As the years go on Mrs. Molloy marries a good-for-nothing doctor whose chief aim in life is to get money, and publish his book on the science of scognosticism and the practice of instinctive thera-putics. Dr. Sylvester has almost driven the former Mrs. Molloy and her daughter to distraction when a very mysterious roomer, a Mr. Lazarus, comes to live in the boarding house. At times it appears that Mr. Lazarus is the returned Mr. Molloy and at times it appears he is not. The final decision is left with the audience.
Regardless of whether he is or isn't Mr. Lazarus succeeds in putting everything, in order. The doctor is shown up for the scoun drel he really is, the budding young artist is awarded the love of the daughter, and even Mr. Lazarus escapes without too much embarrassment.
Mr. Lazarus is played by Dale Oltman. Mr. Oltman can be re-membered for his many character parts in past productions. He is the perfect, unruffled engineer from out of the west whose only aim in life is to see justice done. This art is interpreted well by Oltman's soft and flowing Nebraska drawl.
Mrs. Sylvester, played by Dolores Sigle, is a whiny, not too sharp lady who means well but just can't quite figure out what life is all about. Miss Sigle has developed her port well and promises to" give a sterling performance.
The part of Patricia presents a newcomer In a major roll. Sue Smith portrays the lovely daugh
ter who is caught in a drab and unhappy life by the fell blows of circumstance. In love, she is afraid her young man wants to marry her for pity only.
Wayne Zeigler, as Booth, the young artist, is at his best. Rough and ready, without time to make love by the book method, he finds out that maybe the cave man stuff is best tempered with a few sweet words.
Dean Cotton sings his swan song to McPherson College Dramatics in his role as the villian of the whole affair. Dr. Sylvester. The swan song is not too sweet a one, for he blusters, yells, fights, and spreads it on generally.
Edith. Sylvester's daughter, is played by another freshman, Don-na Phelon. Edith would like to have Booth for her own, and is willing to go to almost any extent to get him. When she has a chance to put her step sister, Patricia, in a bad light she does not miss the opportunity.
Mr. Lazarus promises to be a different type of production than has been presented at McPherson College in the past two years. It should be pleasurable to all.

“I, the undersigned, do swear that I am not a com
munist,” I do own a little stock in the local cooperatives and voted for Jones on a welfare-state plank. As a matter of fact, I’m not sure whether I’m a communist or not.
“Nor a fellow traveler,” Now I can’t say that I’ve checked all my traveling companions closely to see whether they were communists. To be honest I don’t know what to look for; and, if I don't know what to look for, I can’t answer too well.
“Nor am I involved in any conspiracy which plans the forcible overthrow of the government.” Well, I belong to the party out of power. That party and I plan to muster as much force as we can to get voted in when next election comes. I plan to use violence on the sidewalks just rushing to the polls, and I’m going to get violently angry if we don’t win.
I can’t sign that thing. It just doesn't fit me!
By Jane Peterson
The three great sensory attributes of culture are literature, art, and music: literature for the
mind. art for the eye, and music for the ear.
Many people have asked me how to develop a knowledge of art order to enable them to embrace this subject in a sensible and comprehensive manner. I have therefore endeavored to show them how anyone may become familiar and even intimate with art and fully conversant on the subject while deriving a thorough personal pleasure from the development.
I am always surprised at the number of people who visit exhibitions of paintings and scarcely Bee the pictures. The thought to bear In mind at every exhibition is: "Which do I like best?" With this one thought in mind, you must look carefully at every painting in order to qualify it for your personal selection of a favorite.
Once your favorite of any exhibition has been carefully chosen (from your individual taste and concept of beauty) you will remember that one painting and the artist who did it. If you remember one painting from every exhibition, you will quickly gain a knowledge of various artists, their techniques and their general appeal or lack of appeal to you. The pleasure in every exhibition is heightened by the selection of a favorite.
For those who wish to purchase a painting, I cannot urge too strongly to buy for personal appeal. You would not purchase a coat or other article of clothing if it did not appeal to your own taste; true, you may buy it to go with another article of clothing and therefore limit yourself in color and line, but within these limitations you will seek something
that has beauty to you. A painting is even more important on this count than an article of clothing for the painting will never wear nor lose its lustre during your lifetime or those of your descendants.
When you have selected your favorite painting, ask yourself whether you would like to live with it or whether its beauty is not so moving us another favorite from another show. In this way you will be happy and satisfied with your purchase.
Once you own a painting, you should gauge any further purchases by that one and purchase only a painting which stirs you more emotionally than any you possess. Sometimes it will he difficult to find one more appealing than your own. but to purchase one of those below the emotional level you have already attained In art would prove disappointing when you find a more appealing one.
I have seen this simple method of art development turn many cursory observors into art lovers whose interest and appreciation in every exhibition is sincere and of the deepest personal satisfaction.
It is true that nothing is gained without effort and this axiom may he carried into art. To look at an exhibition purely in passing leaves no memory and merits us nothing: to select a favorite at each exhibition means to leave the exhibition with a strong memory of at least one picture, a conception of the artist’s work, and a tremendous self-satisfaction in intellectual, artistic, and emotional gain.
The first thing to face is the sure knowledge that beauty and art are personal as the food you eat. No one hesitates to dislike spinach; this does not mean they herald their dislike to the dinner
In the Spectator Friday. April 20, 1951, was an article about my country, Iran. The title was "Nasty, Little Iran.”
The editor-in-chief wrote this article. I am quite thankful for his writing because he was exactly right, I am thankful for his writing because I can see he knows about my country, and he knows what is going on. We probably have many students like him, but probably many are not so brave.
In the same Spectator was an article with the title, "One Prob-lem Solved.” I am sorry to say that this news was completely wrong. I understand that this was a syndicate story put out by the Associated Collegiate Press.
guests, but merely center their attention on another vegetable which delights their palate. So it must he in art and in appreciation of beauty. One must realize the thoroughly personal aspect of the subject and like it or move on to another. No one can decide whether or not you like spinach unless you taste It; no one can tell you a picture is without beauty unless you see it. on the same level you can only say that a painting or picture is with or without beauty to you.
Certain interests show us to the world as a dirty, uncouth people. They like to say that we should not nationalize our oil, because they have imperialistic ideas. They do not want my country or any country like us to be improved or to cease being under control of imperialist interests.
The following are facts: Abdul Hamid Zangeneh was minister of education during our last premier. All Razmara. All Razmara was assassinated by the religious party because that party thought he was a man who did not like to na tionalize our oil and he wanted to sell our country to the British imperialists. For this same reason, this religious party shot Abdul Hamid Zangeneh (who, incidently, died from the wounds).
From these facts Macollege students and faculty can understand that we are not a people who cheat or lie. hut we want to get freedom We do not, want any other coun-try to interfere in our problems any more than the United States does.

New Book Stacks To Be Installed In Library Addition
Renovation of the college library has made necessary more changes in the location of library materials, Miss Virginia Harris, librarian, announced today.
New gray steel stacks arrived from the factory In New York last week, and plans have been made for their installation on the second floor of the addition this weekend. Books will he moved from the stack room on the first floor to the new stack area this coming week.
Tables, chairs, magazines, newspapers. and reference material now on the second floor of the new stack area were moved temporarily to the second floor of the original structure. The magazine index was moved to the first floor of the addition near the circulation desk.

New Reading Rooms
First floor reading rooms are now in the process of renovation. Cement has been poured in the northeast and the west rooms. New ceilings are being installed and plaster is being repaired.
Asphalt tile flooring cannot be laid on the first floor until the new cement has set six weeks. Miss Harris estimates that the cement will be ready for the tile about the time of commencement.
The second floor of the original structure has been modernized. All of the dark wood trim has been removed or has been painted the same light green color as the
walls. The rounded archways have been changed to rectangular doorways in keeping with the style of the rest of the building.
Indirect Lightening Fixtures
New lighting fixtures have been purchased and have been installed in the rending rooms, office, and workroom. The fixtures, made of concentric circles of alumnium, use incandescent bulbs painted to provide an indirect type of light.
All ceilings have been lowered by placing light finish acoustical tile below the old metal ceilings. This new ceiling material is designed to reflect light and to reduce noise. Floors are now covered with a rubber tiling which will also help to eliminate noise.
The front stairs have been rebuilt, but are not yet ready for public use. Students will continue to use the west entrance to the new addition, Miss Harris stated.

CBYF Sponsors ‘Bag For Sale’
The College CBYF is sponsoring a "Bag for Sale" picnic and ball-game at Lakeside Park this Sunday evening.
At 5 o'clock the crowd will gather and play a lively game of softball to whet their appetites for the next grand event—the sack lunch.
Each person will bring his own sack lunch, but luckily enough he will not have to eat it. All he has to do is buy the hag someone else brought to eat. When the people bring their sacks, they will not put their names on them, but they must do this. They must write on the sack the price they think the lunch should sell for (or more). At the proper moment each person will buy the sack which-fits his pocketbook and appetite.
The purpose of "buying the bags” is to complete the CBYT goal for supporting the entire world program of the Church of the Brethren for a total of 45 minutes. The CBYF has already raised approximately $60 or $70 toward the needed $98.17.
Bring a bag, buy a bag, and gain a goal.

the Council of the Living Theatre, representing all Broadway producers, in a radio interview with Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt.
“Death of a Salesman.” written by a Univeristy of Michigan alumnus, Arthur Miller, was presented for two years in New York and for a year and a half on a tour of larger cities. It enjoyed particular success in college communities, but such visits were limited by the difficulty of arranging railroad-ing and the lack of technical facilities on certain stages.
The producers of the play hope to overcome these obstacles by employing truck transportation and a more flexible, portable, unit set now being designed by Joe Mielzin-er, eminent stage designer who mounted the original production. Elia Kazan, noted stage and screen director who staged the Broadway version, will supervise the new company.
