Girl Bites Dust
Once again the fatal fall has fell— fallen — failed, well, at least, another girl on Macampus has "bit the dust".
Have you noticed who it is? She is well marked by a large red spot on her chin and a bandage around her wrist.
It seems that the fatal night was the night of the burning of the Swede. And that the heroine of this epitaph was gayly tripping (using the word loosely) near the fire, For trip she did.
The fall could have been fatal, but fortunately fate failed for the female lives to face the facts of the future.
Now some think she had one too many and tripped over the "Silver Rail". Still others think she was chasing a man and that she "fell" too hard for him.
But this is not true in her case though one must admit that she does have a peculiarity, that is counting the trees on Euclid Street,
At least, she proved that there are now two reasons for the pipes in the parking lot—one to stop cars and the other to stop people.
Could it be that she is getting her spring plowing done early this year? It seems that one other girl has tried that already. But be assured girls, that plowing must be done in the spring of the year as well as doing it in the “fall"

Conference Has Been Held Yearly Since ’36
The Conference of the Western Region of the Church of the Brethren has been held annually since 1936, according to Bro. James H. Elrod, Executive Secretary of the Western Region.
At the time when Brethren Schools were being organized, the annual conference of the church authorized that the regions send visitors to these schools to spend ohe week giving lectures and teaching about the Bible. This practice grew Into the Bible Normal.
About 1927 this became the Minister's Conference. It was not until 1930, when the Region was organized, that Regional Conferences bw-gan. W. H. Yoder, who, at the time, was the Representative of the region on the Brotherhood Ministerial Board, was made chairman: Dr. Burton Metder was vicechairman. and James H. Elrod, secretary.
In 1942, Bro. Elrod was made a full - time employee of the Western Region as Executive Secretary.
Seniors can be especially proud to graduate from McPherson College this spring. They can graduate knowing that their alma mater has a great future. They can reasonably be assured that Macollege will be an even greater school to which to send their children.
The gift from the Dotzours brought part of the dream of the future into focus—a new girls’, dormitory. Now, the dream of the ten-year expansion program is being unveiled and definite plans are being made.
Our international student program is growing and the phrase "McPherson College family” is becoming more than just words. No longer do international students walk alone, eat alone.
Last weekend our college experienced another triumph when the Bulldogs became champions of the Kansas Conference. This event has given us more prestige and popularity than we have had in many years
Improvements are being made in all college departments, and there is more unity between the facuty and stu-
dents. Yes, Macollege is a-great college and we’ll be proud to name her as our alma mater.—L. M.

Thinking With The President
Here's How My Money Goes
Last year the average earning tor every man, woman, and child in the United States was $1,584.00 according to the United States Department of Commerce. This was ah increase of $145.00 or about 10 percent over the year before. The total personal income for the people Of the United States was $254,675,-
How did we spend this money?
The largest single expenditure was for food; next to that was housing. These two required 22.3 percent and 19 percent respectively of our income. The third Item In total expenditure was for taxes which amounted to 15 percent to the average income.
Several comparative values in spending are interesting.
We spent for recreation—$11,308,600,000
We spent for personal care (haircuts. etc. $2,413,000,000
We spent tor cosmetics—$1,312,-
We spent for tobacco—$4,703,000,000
We spent for alcoholic liquors— $9,150,060,000
In contrast to these expenditures we spent only $795,000,060 for higher education. This was considerably less than we had spent the year previously.
For our total welfare and religious activities in the United States we spent $2,006,000,000.
A comparison of some of the figures is interesting. For instance, we spent nearly 15 times as much for recreation as we spent for higher education and about five times as much for recreation as we spent for religion and humanitarian activities. We spent about 12 times as much for alcohol as we spent for higher education and about 5 times as much for tobacco as we spent for higher education and nearly 3 times as much tot tobacco as we spent tot religious activities. We spent more for cosmetics than we spent for higher education and we spent about 2-3 as much for cosmetics as we spent for religion.
On the favorable side it should be said that we increased our expenditures for religion by about 5 percent over the year previously. For some unknown reason we reduced our expenditures for college education by $10,000,000.
If each of us had given 10 percent of his income to the work of the Lord we would have averaged $156.40. Actually we averaged $2614 last year for the work of the church. This was about fifty cents per week. Some gave much more, of course. Some gave nothing.
We can do better, in the way we spend our money.—D. W. B.
Team Continues Fine Record
Looking at the thirteen football lettermen for McPherson in 1923 we find that they have continued to make tint records for themselves as they did on the college gridiron.
Starting, with right end we find Paul "Si” Sargent. He is now president of the Peoples State Bank here in McPherson.
At right tackle was Stanley Keim. He is now in the meat packing in-, dustry in Nampa, Idaho, with his brother, Richard, who played guard and was captain of the 1923 conference winning team.
At the center post was Paul Kurtz. He now lives in Modesto. California, and has taken up the teaching profession.
John Lengel and Leon “Peanuts” Morinc both saw action from the left guard spot. Lengel is now farming at Englewood. Colorado, and Morine is an officer of the U. S. Coast Guard and is serving with the public relations department at Washington, D. C.
Bill Mudra played left tackle and when last heard of was a captain in Uncle Sam's Air Force.
Playing left end was Frank Barton. No information as to his present location has been found.
In the backfield was Gordon “Joe" Heaston at quarterback. "Joe” now owns an oil company and is also an automobile dealer in Albuquerque. New Mexico. The halfbacks were Cleo Hill. Henry “Heinfc” Hahn, and Carl ”Tok" Carter. Cleo Hill is now a resident of McPherson, owning farming interests in McPherson County. He is also associated with the Morris and Son clothing store here. "Heinie” Hahn is superintendent of schools at Ellsworth, Kansas. No Information can be found on "Ibk” Carter.
Harold "Hal" Barton was fullback on the ’23 Bulldog team. He is now teaching at Vashon, Washington.
Sargent Tells Of 1923 Thrills
Paul "Si" Sargent, former end on tire 1923 championship Bulldogs staled in an interview that there were many thrills for the players and student body alike in ’23. While recalling back fend memories he said that perhaps the two biggest thrills came when the Bulldogs defeated Bethany and Washburn.
In the Bethany game the Bulldogs rolled up over four hundred yards from scrimmage while the Swedes lost more than they gabled. McPherson made twenty first downs to Bethany’s 0, yet the game ended with the score 7-3. This was the first time McPherson had defeated Bethany. The reason for the seeming low score is that when the Bulldogs made a touchdown they played defensive ball until the opposition scored again. Then McPherson would go back to offense.
The second biggest thrill was defeating Washburn. The coach of the Washburn eleven was "Dutch" Lonbetg who had been head coach here the year before. Wash-bum had spent much money on n rejuvenation of their athletic department and the Bulldogs were quite happy when they obliged their former coach by beating his highly touted team 14-7.
FRIDAY, NOV. 14, 1952
This is a shot of the 1923 team in the Bethany game which they won 7-3. The game was held at Lindsborg.. The McPherson players are in the dark jerseys.
Coach Chalmer E. Woodard set his football boys on top of the Kansas Conference this season. His team Is also the only underfeated football squad in Kansas. Thunks to. Woody's efforts and the loyal support of the entire Macollege team, our football team has been changed from pushover to power.
Leading the Conference Champions are George Helm, a rough and rugged tackle, und Dwight McSpadden, a hard-running and hitting half back. George Kelin, Nampa, Idaho, Its a junior as is Dwight McSpadden, who is from Wiley, Colo. This season, both boys saw much action offensively us well as defensively.
Eddie Ball, one of the five Juni- Wayne Blichenstaff. junior, or members of the backfield, has quarterback, has already this in his first three years of college year thrown 11 touchdown passes, football scored over 160 points which far surpasses the total for for McPherson College. any previous year.
Like Father, Like Son
Gene Smith is at the moment the leading Kansas Conference and McPherson College scorer with 81 points.
Half Is Better Than None
It was the. custom in 1923 for each football game to be played with a new ball. The winner of the game would then get to take the ball home with them to be displayed in a prominent place.
This presented a problem when the Bulldogs played the Baker Wildcats to a 3 to 3 tic in the first game of the '23 season. Deciding that half a football was better than none. Richard "Dick” Keim. captain of the Bulldogs, elected to cut it in two and bring the half football home for our showcase.
ing his father’s footsteps, came to McPherson College. Now Big George is a Junior and was chosen u co-captain of this year's football team. A rugged tackle. George played an invaluable part in leading the 1952 Bulldogs to a very decisive championship in the Kansas Conference. Their record of six wins, no losses, and no tics in conference play, is the best in the history of McPherson College.
it would almost seem that there is magic in the name, Keim, and that McPherson can't have a winning football team without a Keim in the lineup. If so, the Bulldogs should have a successful season again next year , since Big George Keim will again be at his tackle spot making life miserable for the opposition.
It was many years ago that McPherson College’s Bulldogs won their lust conference championship. We arc all painfully aware that it was 29 years ago. to be exact—one generation. This one generation must have brought back to McPherson some of the determined aggressiveness that marked the play of the 1923 Bulldogs.
Looking back we see that the Bulldogs of 1923 were captained by
a rugged and determined guard by

Costumes ranging from baby diapers and teething rings to hoboes and Li’l Abners were there. Various designs descriptive of "Dog-patch” were around the wails. Games were played and contests won, refreshments served, and feet ached, but all seemed to have a good time.

The last lap of the trip was Western Colorado. Saturday afterhoon and Sunday was spent in the Widegren home near Grand Junction. Some of them ate their first venision. elk, and trout that weekend. Sunday the quartet gave 5 programs—a total of 51 songs for the day,
They did some sight seeing in the mountians hear Grand Junction. At one place they stood on what is known as "Cold Shiver’s Point” and sang into the deep canyon below as the sounds echoed back to them twice with the force of choir.
interesting things happened every day. One day as they went through Keim's meat packing plant In Nampa, they were watching the butchering of sheep. Suddenly— splosh!! a big clot Of blood lit in Peggy’s eye. "Here’s blood in yer bye!" Later in the Week oh a cook out as Bob and La Von built the fire, Elsie and Peggy peeled the apples for baked apples and Florene got the biscuits ready, the pressure in the can bad built up too much so when Florene opened it up the biscuits really shot out. It so happened the can was pointed toward Peggy so they had to scrape the dough from her shoulder before they could have any biscuits with their baked apples. Another day they had a snow ball fight oh the Continental Divide on Monarch Pass.
You can't beat Bob Mays for introductions. You never know who’s coming next. One night he introduced Florene as the soprano who made the rafters tremble. Elsie as the alto who made the floor tremble, and Peggy—who made the boys tremble.
Several times Peggy’ was asked to talk to the congregation follow-
Have you wondered What was the matter with Bob Mays recently?
Anything he says or 'does should not be held against him for he has Just survived a 3400-mile trip with; the college Ladies Quartet.
A few extra miles were added to the regularly scheduled trip perhaps because Bob thought it was too soon after Halloween and practical jokesters had been at work on the highway signs. It was 40 miles later when Bob finally realised that 5’s in front of the 50's were supposed to be there and was traveling. not highway 50 as he supposed. but highway 550.
They stayed in the home of Bob Mays’ parents in Denver the first night and had a weiner roast the next day going through Wyoming.
That night in Montpelier, Idaho they were invited by a new found friend to a square dance club. It was interesting observing.
In Nampa they ate In the Blicken home and stayed with the Bloughs, Eshelmans and Keims.
And did you see those pumpkins they brought back? Well, those were really apples that Prof. Wesley De-Coursey’s mother gave them.
Four programs in four different churches on Sunday kept them all so busy that LaVon forgot it was her birthday until the others remembered and sang "happy birthday” to her. That night the Fruit-land young people had a party for the girls so they added to LaVon’s tray a candle on a vanilla wafer.
Speaking of Fruitland, that's where "Si" Sargent grew up. so they met a lot of Peggy’s relatives.
There were quite a few. but Bob was probably overestimating when lie told the congregation at Woiser thnt the last count on her relatives was 1,206. They stayed in the Yost home at Payette and the Mc-Kellip home at Melba and even met another Vance brother at Twin Falls.

There was extremely beautiful scenery for the trip. The trees were at their prettiest and the mountains were arrayed with a mass of color.

had a tel-one week next.
Tonight, November 14. McPherson College Bulldogs wind up what has proved to be the greatest season ever had by a Bulldog team.
Starting out fast against two opponents that should not have been on the same field with them, they held them scoreless. Then they returned home for their second conference game of the season. Baker found the road to defeat broad and wide as they crumpled to defeat 5213.
Then came the real test for the Mac Bulldogs. For four weeks in a row they played in homecoming battles, and if ever a team is "up" for a game it is their homecoming. They more than proved their mettle in these games winning three and tying William Jewell in a game that was publicized over a large portion of the midwest
Then last Friday night they came home and returned the trouncing that Bethany had administered to McPherson only three short years ago with an almost identical score.
Tonight they face a non - conference opponent that would like nothing' better than to defeat Mac.
Friends University perennially tries to become the eighth member of the conference only to be told that they do not play a quality of sports that is the equal of the Kansas Conference.
They believed that they partially disproved that last week when they upset the "dope sheet” and delt Baker a 12;7 defeat To prove that it was no fluke the Friends team is working overtime for Coach Earl Craven this week in preparation for the game with McPherson. For example, school was excused at Friends last Monday because of the Baker victory, but the football team voted to practice anyway.
Friends’ uses the two platoon system extensively, changing nine or ten players whenever the ball changes hands. In the Friends’ backfield are Jerry Young at QB.
Jim Downing and Jack Tipton at left halfback, Kenton Harris at right halfback, and Gary Boatright at fullback.
. Friends’ have been operating out of the T formation until the game last. Friday night, when they switched to the old double wing formation and defeated Baker with it. They plan to use this formation against McPherson.
. The Bulldogs are in top physical condition for this game. No- Eddie Ball's body was injured in the Bethany 20 yard line, game and the players are in top condition for tonight. Coach Woodard has not worked the players too hard this week, but the players
Know that a win tonight will give cm an undefeated season and they are not planning on letting Friends ruin that.
McPherson received the hall on the opening kickoff and in seven plays drove 72 yards for a touchdown. That just about describes what happened as McPherson humbled Bethany here last Friday night 72-13. Not once during the game did McPherson punt and except for a pass interception evey time they had their hands on the ball they scored until midway in the third quarter when the reserves were in.
capacity crowd estimated to be over 4000 was present to witness McPherson capture the Kansas Conference crown for the first time in 29 years. It looked more like homecoming than homecoming itself as there were many teachers that forgot to attend the evening state teachers session at Salina and somehow wound up at the football field sometime before eight o’clock.
The crowd was In a holiday mood and their enthusiasm never dampened. Even after Woody had swept the bench clean and there were players playing that the crowd didn’t even know were out for football they were yelling just as loud for just "one more touchdown."
The score represented the greatest margin of defeat ever handed Bethany team by the Bulldogs. Many of the teachers and students in the stands remembered a short three years ago when Coach Ray Hahn let the Bethany’s first team remain in the contest until the closing minutes to run up score against McPherson and the revenge was doubly sweet when Mac was able to defeat them by the almost identical score and still let everybody on the bench see action.
McPherson received the opening kickoff and immediately marched the length of the field, going the last 21 yards on that famous touchdown pass from Wayne Blickenstaff to Dwight McSpadden. The try for the extra point failed.
The Bulldogs kicked off and then the defensive unit held for three straight downs, forcing Bethany to kick on the fourth down. They got off a good one that settled into Eddie Ball's arms on McPherson's

Receiving good blocking aU the way, a huge hole opened up and Ball sped through it. It looked for a moment as though he might be gone, but the referee ruled that he stepped out of bounds on the five-yard line so the ball was handed to Smith the next play and be lugged It over. Score now 12-0. Smith also made the extra point and with only five minutes gone in the quarter the score was 13-0.
After Bethany picked up a first down the tough-as nails McPherson line again stiffened and forced Bethany to punt. They did. and McPherson was again on the touchdown trail. Several times the runners almost broke loose only to be stopped by just one man. Finally Ball went over from the eight-yard line and Gene Smith made the extra point to end the scoring for the first quarter and McPherson was in the lead 20-0.
Early in the second quarter Robison intercepted a Bethany pass to set up another McPherson score. Gene Smith did the honors this time from 37 yards out as the McPherson line opened a hole in the line big enough to drive a truck through. This time the extra point
was made by a pass completion from Blickenstaff to Clive Sharpe. Score now 27-0.
Same old story again. Mac’s defense holds, Bethany kicks .and McPherson starts a touchdown inarch. The final five yards were covered by Gene Smith. This time Robison carried the ball over for the extra point.
McPherson got possession of the ball next time a little differently. Jerry Green broke through the Bethany line and hit the QB before he had a chance to hand the ball off. He fumbled and Bob Wise recovered to set up another TD. Gene Smith, who ran rampart all night long broke loose this time for a 39-yard run and another TD. Dwight McSpadden carried for the extra point and the score in this football game, that was beginning to resemble a track meet with McPherson doing all the running, was 41-0 at halftime, with McPherson safely in the lead.
The second half was almost an exact replica of the first half with MePherson scoring at will until Woody started substituting at will. Bethany received the kickoff and immediately and conveniently fumbled. Two plays later McPherson had their score, this time for variety through the air as Bllck-enstaff hit McSpadden for a 14-yard touchdown pass. McPherson missed their extra point.
On the first series of' downs Bethany made the mistake of believing that they did not have to kick and so the impregnable McPherson defense just held for four downs. Three plays later McSpud den found the necessary hole in the line and covered the last seven yards and the double stripes again felt the pounding of Bulldog feet For some reason or other the try for the extra point failed and the score remained 53-0.
Bethany punted out on McPherson one yard line several minutes later. With a partially new lineup in McPherson again headed for the double stripes. Don Goodfellow carried for 17 yards to the Mac 32 and several more plays say the ball advanced to the Mac 39. From here John Robison carried around end and headed for the goal posts. At the 50 he was in the clear and nobody even came close to him. Goering made the point after touchdown and for you who are keeping a running score of the game that made it 60-0.
At this point Woody poured reserves Into the battle. There were so many new faces that even the coaches were slightly confused and twice only 10 McPherson players were on the field, but both times they held for no gain. With 22 seconds left in the third quarter Ma-cey threw a one yard pass to Lundgren that gave Bethany their first score. They also converted and the score at the end of the quarter was 60-7.
Just before the quarter ended, BUI Goering took Bethany’s kickoff and returned It 65 yards before being brought down on Bethany's 20-yard line. On the first play after the quarter. Eddie Ball scooted those last 20 yards, thanks to a key block by Howard Todd, and since Mac missed their extra point the score was 66-7.
Keim Nominated For Little All-American
McPherson received a boost Nov. 11, lor the enviable position of having one of its players selected for the Little All - America Team. To receive this selection requires a terrific combination of good luck coupled with good playing.
The good luck consists of being on a team that is conference champs and if at all possible, undefeated. Besides this it takes publicity and plenty of it. Here is where the “Topeka Daily Capital” came through with a valuable boost Tuesday.
They sent to the Associated Press the nomination of Big George Keim, McPherson tackle, to be considered for Little All - American honors. While this docs not mean that he will be chosen, it is a considerable help to be nominated by the paper that is recognized all over Kansas as the authority on small college football in Kansas..

I continued in my slump last ; week. As the returns started com- . ing from all over the country, my j blood pressure started to drop and I started to feel faint. The Solid South again confounded the experts. No, this isn’t a report on the ■ election returns, but on the football scores. Such teams as Georgia, Kentucky, and Virginia won games that were supposed to be in the bag for the opponents. In other parts of the country Washington. Notre Dame, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, and Friends U. also pulled upsets.
However, the Michigan S. powerhouse kept rolling right along. : After a slow first quarter they got j angry, six Indiana players and two Michigan S. players were thrown out of the game, and Michigan S. won the game 41-14.

Woody Announces Tentative Schedule For Basketball
Coach Chalmer Woodard today announced the tentative schedule of games that the McPherson College Bulldogs will play this year. There is a possibility of several more games because of open dates remaining on the schedule.

Volleyball Leagues Finish Season
The volleyball leagues finished their last games of the season last night. The Winner in each league will meet in a play-off game to decide the champion volleyball team.
This year 31 teams competed in volleyball play. This was the highest number ever to play in McPherson’s intramural program. About 220 players were on the various teams. The boys outnumbered the girls as several of the teams were made up entirely of boys.
With the end of the volleyball season, the weather is beginning to point to the start of the intramural basketball season. Dick Wareham. director of Intramural athletics, announces that it will be of no avail to start forming teams yet. There will be an announcement in a later Spectator as to the exact method of forming’ teams this year and when it can be started.
