tion; (3) a better knowledge of our American composers: and (4) a more definite realization of the importance of music as a factor in everyday life.

College Is Worth Your Time

Aren’t you glad you came to college? As I was sitting in on a gab session the other evening, laughing and talking about every-, thing in general, but not much of anything, it occurred to me that college is really a barrel of fun.

Just stop and think of all the new friends you've made while in college—you can hardly count them ah. can you?

In college, we arc very independent and are more or less on our own. With this feeling; we can act our true selves, and thus laugh when the occasion calls for it. or be serious when we are faced with problems or decisions.

We are here preparing for our future vocation. The way we act and get along with others here wilt somewhat carry on through in the walk of life wo choose.

Each one of us gets depressed at times and feel that we Just can’t go on—that this world is just too cruel and is not worth all the struggle.

But in a little while, a smile or a few kind or funny words from a friend or your roommate, and you forget your troubles and enjoy life again.

So when you see someone down in the dumps over something, just remember what a few words of kindness and consideration can do to put him back into seeing the bright side.

Yes. college is a lot of fun— for where else can one forget his troubles so easy and just plainly have a good time through every phase of his academic career —be it the classroom, meetings, or gab sessions? Enjoy it while you arc here!—R. P.


Congratulations; junior class!

Your class has shown great determination, school spirit and enthusiasm in winning Play Day for three consecutive years.

You have worked hard for that trophy, Which is now in your permanent possession, and you rightly deserve.

When a class, team or organization has the backing of all members, it can accomplish more than even the strongest without a little backing.

McPherson College is proud to be represented by a class that will stick together and win, even though the chances for success do look a little rugged.

Your example is one of sportsmanship and loyalty which each of us should be proud to follow and copy. Maybe the rest of us can learn something from it.—R. P.

To The Editor

DcaV Editor:

This article Is pertaining to the skits of Tuesday night. Before play, day,- we were told to use originality ideas; and anything within reasonable limits for these skits. I think students and faculty alike should read this—it might open their minds somewhat.

It seems to me that McPherson College is like a stagnant pool that likes to stay the same lukewarm temperature—no progress in ideas for youth. We are progressing other ways, such as the construction of new buildings and the like, but I’m speaking of things for the youth go do. such as skits.

We are so limited with ideas. The mere word, "dance.” is shunned as though it were a sin and if some one has an idea or implication  of it in a skit, they are criticized and cut down.

The acts Tuesday evening were supposed to be judged on audience response and laughter. They should ; have been judged that way. then, A good many student can’t understand the way things are done— everything scorns too literary and reserved, and this only creates resentment.

A group of us were discussing the matter and we thought that persons with unbiased opinions from town or neighboring schools would make better judges than those on our own faculty.

I realize we should not be allowed to go hog-wild, but give us a chance to live a little, because we can’t live in a place like this forever.

"Dear Tom: Nothing every happens hero. We know you like your school. Write us another letter soon. Jimmie was asking about you Monday. Now we have to say good-bye.”

Thinking With The President

Are We Afraid of Peace

Strange headlines have been stretching across the tops of our newspapers recently. Such terms as "Peace Offensive.” "Campaign for Peace." and so forth, have been used with connotations of wickedness rather than righteousness.

When "one side” makes a suggestion for peace immediately the "other side" pulls itself together to see how it can counter this offensive and beat it down. At least, that is the impression which our newspapers give us. The impression given is that to assume the initiative in sponsoring the peace is more important than achieving the peace. Each side seeks to make the other’s peace suggestion seem ridiculous or selfish. This may not be the true state of affairs, but it is the newspaper impression. Perhaps the reason this attitude appears in our newspapers is that people are thinking in those terms.

Do we really want peace?

When we seemed to be moving, even slightly, in the direction of peace, the stock markets began to tremble. People became frightened. Our economy became unsteady.

Are we afraid of peace? There are evidences that we are.

Certainly we need nothing more than we need peace. We need it from the standpoint of the actual destruction which is happening in our world. We need it. also, from the standpoint of the quietitude for which our own souls yearn.

Our economy does not need to suffer because of peace. There arc so many good things we can do with our money. There are roads to build, hospitals to build, libraries to build, schools to build.

Without fear or falsification let us work for peace. Peace lies at the very center of the Christian purpose.

Fix Your Eyes Upon A Cause

If you are looking for a sharp contrast to flabby and superficial living, fix your gaze upon Susan B. Anthony. Here was a soul possessed by a single idea, women should have equal rights with men.

For half a century, she was the organizer and director of the woman suffrage campaign. She laid siege to Congress and for forty years appeared annually before its committees.

She spoke incessantly throughout the land. She wrote numerous articles for the press and carried on a voluminous correspondence with her pen. never owning a typewriter or employing a secretary until near the end of her career.

The righteousness of her cause is now universally recognized and it is difficult for us to put ourselves in the frame of mind of her opponents.    

Yet Miss Anthony and her fellow suffragists were subjected to an

almost unparralled degree of abuse and vilification. Year after year insulting epithets of the most extreme nature were hurled at them from coast to coast.

In 1871. a Seattle editor wrote concerning Miss Anthony: "She is a revolutionist, aiming at nothing less than the breaking up of the very foundation of society, and the over throw of every social institution organized for the protection of the sanctity of the altar, the family circle and the legitimacy of our off-spring. The whole plan is coarse, sensual and agrarian, the worst phase of French infidelity!”

The truth is that Susan B. Anthony was a gentle and evout little Quaker lady with a passion for justice for women.

Nothing could swerve her. not fatigue and weariness, not opposition and abuse, not defeat piled upon defeat. Her personality was unified in a great cause.

What Is True Today?

It is easier to give intellectual assent to the Beautitudes than to live as if we know them to be true. Let us now seek new meanings from old words:

"Blessed are those, who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” *

Do we really believe this? “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” In wartime?

“Blessed arc the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”

Do our lives reveal the conviction that this is so?

"Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you."

Are these words applicable to us in this age of totalitarian dictators? What is their meaning for us now?

Betty Young went to Dean Neb-O-er’s home In Oswego, It ran to visit. and take part In a youth ratty. Lyle Neher and Betty Lou Hershberrer also went.

The ladies trio spent all day Tuesday on a deputation tour to four high school. giving concerts.

Velvo Warner went home with Don and Dual Wagoner to Adet. Iowa.. Don Butler went In the same car with Lee Hogle and the two fellows spent Sunday In the Wagoner home. The dinner was fried chicken, and fresh strawberry shortcake—home cooking!

Cupid struck another blow a week ago Thursday evening. A dorm meeting was scheduled for that night and when the girls were seated. Ina Ditmars, dorm president passed out specific rules that were to be enforced.

Some of the rules were rather pertinent and sharp, and angry thoughts were gradually building op towards a storm of voices—then they hit number 11 which said. everyone was to make note of the fact that Lu Carpenter and Ed Frants were engaged, and that all other rules except number 11 would not go into effect unless otherwise notified.

Play Day started off with a bang last Tuesday at one o'clock. Each class was determined to win over the previous victorious juniors. But they were determined too.

Well, their determination held out and they won again. Sophomores ran a close second, though and for the first time since the junior class entered school, they got pulled over the line in the tug-of-war by the freshmen.    

The juniors won in track and field events, and the mystery event, which was a way of gaining points for your class. Slips of paper were placed all over the campus.

5 of which had Dr. Bittingcr's signature and each counted 5 points. One - hundred notes were signed by Dean Berkebile amounting to 1 point each, two hundred signed by Dick Wareham for Vi point, and Gordon Yoder signed five hundred fifty for 1-10 point a piece.    

. The whole day was packed full and every one enjoyed IL Good old dependable Kansas came forth with a spring shower and the eats were moved from the tennis courts to the gymnasium.

That evening, each class put on a skit as well as the faculty and Rec Leadership Class. The juniors won that freshman second, sophomores and then seniors. Sophomores still came in second though for the play day.

The juniors theme was a take off on property assessments in the lower, middle and upper classes; sophomores had a vaudeville show; freshman, an angelic Idea In heaven; and seniors had an Arthur Godfrey show.

The morning after the night before. everyone on campus found out that they had more muscles than they knew could ache.

Over last weekend. Betty Hold-erread started to Cushing. Okla. to attend a district CBYF cabinet meeting, but missed her bus. so she spent her time doing other things. She popped her back out of place when she fell over a wire at the end of the football field on play day. too. And just a little while back she practically disfigured herself by falling over a pipe. She didn’t slip, she wasn’t pushed, she fell, hard.

Protection For Dull Profs

The Northeastern News, Northeastern University. Mass., thinks the no-cut system is merely a "protection for professors who offer dull instruction."

"Abolish this rule.” says the News, "and many classes would be deserted day after day. And it would be a lesson to those instructors who refuse to make their classes interesting.”

The behavior, of those with whom we come in contact is a mirror reflecting our own personality.— Karl Sealot.

No Wemen Al Princeton

Princeton officials had their values jolted the other day when they received a letter from a midwestern girl (addressed to the Dean of Women.)

"I am sincerely thinking -about attending your university and would like some information in regards to tuition, board, books, and a parttime job if possible.

Some information on the size of the school and the campus and the situation of the dorm and sorority houses along with other information would be desired."

Since Princeton has no dean of women. Assistant Dean of the College, Hamilton Cottier, did the honors. He told her. it would be use; less to send information she requested. Princeton docs not accept women students.

Kansas Scraps TV For Education

The Kansas state legislature killed educational TV last week on the grounds that it would be too great an expense.

Want The Moon For A Vacation?

The Space Age has arrived. Let’s face it. Now instead of trips to the Riviera, the Vacationist will jump in his rocket and zoom to the Moon.

As a service to this paper's great and far-flung band of readers, this reporter made just such a jaunt last week. The trip was uneventful —we passed Flash Gordon once. He was going to Mars to pick up an interspace spy known as Subversive Sam. Sam had some wild plan about heading Mars toward the Earth and jumping off just before the two crashed together. We didn’t see any flying saucers at all. which the pilot said was very unusual.

I was met at the space port by a delegation from Moonlight Bay. the planet’s most popular retort. Naturally. everything’s sky-high, including most of the inhabitants.

The scenery on the Moon is impressive—even beats the Rockies! Life is informal—no buildings of any kind. Food is plentiful if youlike dandelion greens and water-press. Things are progressing however. Song, expressions, and Broadway shows and movies have made a big hit on the Moon. Intcrplan-etial relations between the two worlds are excellent.

I shaft never forget a typical scene I saw as the space ship pulled away from the runway. A picturesque little man was sitting on a rock singing that popular new song. “How Low the Earth."

The natives stood on the shore waving me farewell from the Land of Enchantment destined to become a favorite vacationland for those who want "to get out of this world.” (Taken from the Sterling Stir.)

“College boys are found everywhere-breaking train windows, tearing down goal posts, -or inciting riots. ... A college boy is laziness with peach fuzz on its face, idiocy with lanolin in its hair, and hope of the future with an overdrawn bank book in his pocket.

Thoughts For The Wise

You can surmount the obstacles in your path if you arc determined, courageous and hard-working. Never be fainthearted. Be resolute, but never bitter. Bitterness will serve only to warp your personality. Permit no one to dissuade you from pursuing the goals you set for yourselves. Do not fear to pioneer, to venture down new paths of endeavor. Demand and make good

These groups arc making it possible for students to take a direct and active part in doing something about their country’s problems. Students can go Into the villages and work on the problems of health, illiteracy, and agricultural development.

This is an age in which the struggle is for the minds of men; a struggle to create understanding and sympathy between peoples of different races, culture and history; a struggle in which all those who love freedom will do all they can to establish at least a powerful mental alliance amongst themselves against the forces of tyranny. Let us each—work toward the goal that in the end we may live in peace and good will together. Percey C. Spender.

Bulldogs, Wichita Split Twin-Bill

A three run rally in the last half of the last inning gained a split decision for the McPherson College Bulldogs in their doubleheader with the Wichita Shockers Monday, April 27.

The rally started with one out as Tommy O’Dell reached first on Shocker error. Hoch followed with a single moving O’Dell to third, and then O’Dell scored on Petefish’s single. Hoch scored when there was an error on Delay’s squeeze bunt and Eddie Ball won the game with a single that scored Petefish from second. This gave McPherson a 6-5 win.

The loss to Wichita U. in the first game was only the second loss that the Bulldogs have sustained all season. Credited with Wichita’s U.’s victory in the first game was Eli Romero. He gave the Bulldogs plenty of trouble with his control which only gave up one walk in the entire game.

Although the McPherson pitchers only allowed two hits in the first game, a combination of seven errors in the field behind them and an abundance of walks given up b.v them, resulted in a 5-1 win for Wichita U.

Joe Johns was McPherson’s winning pitcher in the last game. He gave up seven hits, walked three and struck out four. The box scores of the two games: McPherson    AB    E    h

“Dear John” Letters Are Posted At Ft. Riley

A “Dear John” letter to an infantryman from his girl back home can be a sad thing, depending upon the circumstances and parties concerned, but Company C of the 87th regiment at Ft. Riley, Kansas has decided to treat "Dear Johnletters realistically.

The boys now post them on the company bulletin board.

A "Dear John” letter is the kind the girl back home writes when she wishes to discourage further correspondence. Company C men have received sewn such letters since January, according to Pfc Donald .Wilstermann, company mail clerk.
