Game May Decide Conference Title

Tonight at 8 o’clock McPherson College Bulldogs go against Ottawa Braves at Ottawa in a game that could decide the conference title.

At the present both teams ore undefeated in conference play, McPherson having four conference victories under their belt and Ottawa having three.

Both teams have played six games. Ottawa's record Is unblemished while McPherson has only a tie with William Jewell to mar their record. Ottawa bolds a decided edge over McPherson in previous games. Last year the Bulldogs won here at McPherson 21-19, but to find the next victory it is necessary to go clear back to 1949 when McPherson won 6-0. The complete record between the two schools is seven wins for McPher-'son and twelve wins for Ottawa.

Before last Saturday’s game most experts would have said that this game tonight would be a battle between a team with a devastating ground attack and one that could gain almost at will through the air. However. Wayne Blicken-staff when he found the touchdown route blocked on the ground threw eleven passes and completed six. one for a touchdown, against Wm. Jewell.

Ottawa proved that they had a running attack against Bethany last Friday night as they gained better than 250 yards on the ground.

Ottawa’s team this year is sparked by two great ends, Simons and Ryan. Both of them are high on the list of leading conference scorers. Ryan is leading the conference at the moment, thanks partly to 32 extra points that he has kicked.

In the backfield for the Braves are three players whose names should be familiar to McPherson fans. They are Clifton. Paddy, and Killingsworth. Clifton and Kil-lingsworth do the running for Ottawa and Paddy is Ottawa’s famous passer.

Starting tor McPherson in the line tonight are seven players that ought to be better known to McPherson fans than they are. The average fan sees a long run and says that the backfield man can really run. True, bat if it wouldn’t be for these seven men opening holes in the line big enough for a truck to go through, those gains wouldn’t be possible. After the Backs get through the line they still recieve help from these linemen in getting the way cleared for a glorious touchdown run.

These players are at end. Bob Peel and Bob Bechtel: at tackle, arc Bob Powell and George Keim. They are the quarterbacks of the line under “Woody’s” formation. They call a line maneuver each time that will put the backs through the hole through which the Quarterback said they should go.

The guards are Roland Delay and Steve Bersuch, with Alvin Fish-burn and Tommy Taylor also seeing quite a bit of action. Centering for the Bulldogs is Jack Richardson for Little River.

McPherson came out of the Wm Jewell game in good physical condition. The only player with a bad bruise is end. Bob Peel, whose leg is pretty well marked up. It is, however. expected to be in good enough shape for him to play tonight.

Rec Council Has Halloween Parly In Barn

Ghosts, spooks and jack-o-lant-erns!

The Rec Council had a hallowe-en party in the Marvin Krehbiel barn, 5 mi. north of town, Monday evening. Oct. 27, and each wore weird or unusual mask.

The group of 21 was divided into two sections — one the Spirits, and the other, the Mortals. Several relays were played, after which the group bobbed for apples.

Jack-o-lanterns and ghosts peeped around and between bales of hay.

Refreshments were cheese sandwiches, carrot strips, apple cider, and chocolate cupcakes.

After eating, everyone gathered in a circle and started telling a ghost story. Each person would add something on to the story as it went along.

The story started out about Hor-ntio, the spook, and ended with a woman in a coffin, who was given coughdrops to stop her coughing.

Dotzours Delay Visit To Macollege

When Mr. and Mrs. Royer Dot-zour left their home in Boulder. Colorado, they intended to come to McPherson College.

On their way here they stopped at their home in Johnson, Kansas. Since the weather has been so dry, they have been unable to plant the wheat, so the Dotzours decided to delay their visit here.

Mr. Dotzour is experimenting with a new venture in southwest Kansas; that of irrigation by wells. He is using his own land and some land he has given the college for his experimenting.

Mr. and Mrs. Royer Dotzour plan to visit Macampus later, but have not set a date as yet.

Movie, Miracle on 34th Street, in the Chemistry lecture room.

Some years ago the classes of 1912 and 1913 voted to give a pair of entrance gates to McPherson College. Little was it realized that one of these two gifts would prove to be the downfall, or best to say, the fall down of a Macollege coed.

Ah yes. the fateful day of Sunday. October 26,    1952, dawned

bright and balmy. It was a happy one for Miss Coed. The very essence of the air was enough to give her an immeasurable amount of energy. Studies kept her from immediately spending some of this excess energy, but come time to walk back to the dormitory and the race was on.

There were do obstacle courses In sight, so Miss Coed’s alternative step was to turn cartwheels the entire length of one block. Alas, this was no solution. True, it burned up a bit of that energy, but Bliss coed’s feeling was not only one of exhilaration and exuberating, but

By Peg Kerley

was one of extreme desire to raise herself a few feet off the terra firms.

Yes, jumping was the solution. Having an athletic inclination or two, she liked to jump, so jump she would. Fortunately; Miss Coed was traveling with two companions who finally convinced her that the weathervane on Sharp Hall would be too much for her to clear without the assistance of a pole. All of a sudden Miss Coed’s eyes fell upon the aforementioned entrance gates, the fateful gifts of the classes of 1912 and 1913. This would be a simple achievement. Unlike the pole vaultin' parson, this lassie needed no pole. Accompanied by the shrieks of her companions she jumped over the entrance proudly labeled 1912.

Alaekaday, gloom fell upon the scene. Miss Coed had not timed herself properly. She cleared the

entrance.—but she let her left leg drop too quickly. This leg hit the entrance, causing Bliss Coed to fly through the air with the greatest of ease and to make a three point landing on her forehead, cheek, and chin. After her companions pulled her up from the trench she had dug with her head, they discovered she had left part of her anatomy on the entrance gate.

With much heaving and being Miss Coed was transported to Arnold Hall to receive first aid. End result of the Jump was not only the denation of her energy, but, also, the Inflation of her left leg and tight eye. Perhaps this tale should be on the athletic page. After all. Bliss Coed did accomplish quite an athletic feat. How often can a swollen leg. two black eyes and one sklnned-up face be accomplished with one hop, skip and a Jump?

Thinking With The President

This Seems Strange

We have been trying to get the Korean War stopped for a year and a half now. During at least a part of that time we have averaged four hundred additional American casualties each week. By way of comparison, we could say that the population of school the size of McPherson has been wiped out each week while we have waited and worked for a Korean truce. Claims are made that the losses on the other side of -the Korean ridges and mountains have been greater.

Why cannot we; get this truce concluded and bring to an end this appalling loss of life?

Ostensibly the reason is that we cannot agree about the handling of prisoners of war. We say that we cannot agree that North Koreans or Chinese soldiers should be returned to their homelands, since these homelands are now Communist dominated, unless the prisoners express a wish to return. The North Koreans or Communists insist that all prisoners of war, ours and theirs be returned to the side from which they were captured.

Neither side will compromise, and on this issue the war continues; our captured boys are held by them and theirs by us. And others die on ridge tops.

Isn't it strange that while we take this stand in Korea we are, at the same time, sending back to Communist areas in Europe certain refugees, who. at great hardship and danger, escaped from their homelands and came to this country? It should be said to our credit that in some instances we have pushed aside our immigration restrictions and have allowed a boatload of refugees, who crossed the ocean at great peril, to remain. In other instances, however, the violation «of our immigration quotas seemed more important than anything else, and we have sent refugees back.

Wladejslaw Michalski, for instance, tried to commit suicide at Odlewidd Airport in New York recently, rather than to be flown back to Communist dominated Poland.

It seems strange we would be so sure about a certain principle in Korea and less sure about it in America. Perhaps we could stop the war if both sides, or either side, really wanted it stopped.

Let’s keep on thinking about Korea and about America. No problem is without solution if we are willing to think.—D. W. B.

Where Are We Going?

Here it is the ninth week of the term, and we can hardly realize it. Of course, all those exams that have been shot at us this week have been pretty awakening. And what do you want to bet, that we, as a bunch of procrastinators, will be burning the midnight oil when the end of the semester rolls around?.    

The mark of the nine weeks should mean more than just the middle of the semester. It should mean that we have gained many new friends, that we are more settled in our minds about what we want from life, that we understand and like our courses, that we are realizing a greater appreciation and understanding of Christianity.

The person who goes through college with no goal in mind, who takes only courses outlined for him, who does not participate in classes, who does not belong to any extra curricular organization, who does not become well acquainted with any of his professors, is getting his education in spite of himself. And that education won’t be half so valuable as the one the working and active student receives. It's like eating a Thanksgiving dinner without being able to taste.

Luke left us an excellent answer to the question, “Where Are We Going?”

“He advanced in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and man.”—L. M.

What About Local Offices?

Last weekend I had the opportunity to vote, using the absentee ballot. I thought It would be quick and simple—then, the auditor handed me a ballot. It was as big as a newspaper! There were at least six parties listing candidates— and those candidates ran from president of the United States to justice of peace.

All summer I had been hearing about Elsenhower and Stevenaon. There was so much said about thorn that I didn't know what to believe. I had also heard about the candidates for, governor of my home state.

I had come to a decision about those offices: but when I came to candidates for congress, county clerk, county attorney, sheriff, etc., I was completely lost. The name of one candidate meant no more to me than another.

Isn’t it true that the life of the common person is affected more by the local government than by the national government? "Vet, when election time rolls-around, voters hear much shouting about the national election and only a few whispers about state and county elections.    '    

Of course, the national election rightfully claims common interest. but sholudn’t everyone be concerned and informed about state, county and city governments?—L. M.

Library Announces Newest Arrivals

Recreation is the subject of some new books at the college library.

Recreation Through Music by Charles Leonhard is addressed to musical laymen. It provides a basic orientation to the recreation music program and contains lists and recommendations for records, songs, and materials for both the listening'-and the singing programs.

Anyone Can Sculpt by Arthur Zaidenberg teaches the rudiments of making simple sculptured figures and animals.

. Directed toward the amateur, this book is well illustrated and contains very simple projects and procedures.

The Cabinetmaker’s Treasury by

Hoard and Marlow is a practical guide to the reproduction of fine period furniture. It is designed to serve both the home-workshop enthusiast and the expert craftsman.

Tennis by the tennis champion, Helen Jacobs, is one of the volumes on popular sports in The Barnes Sports Library. The instructions and illustrations in the book are useful for both the beginner and the accomplished expert.

Two new books in the religious field are Our English Bible In The Making by Herbert Gordon May and Protestant Panorama by Clarence W. Hall and Desider Holisher.

Dr. May’s book is the story of the English Bible from its earliest beginnings in its original languages down to and including publication of the Revised Standard Version this year.

Protestant Panorama blends text and photoghaphs to present a picture of Protestantism in America, both in its contributions in the past and in its influences today.

In the field of sociology and social problems the library has added another group of titles.

Essentials In Interviewing by Anne Ferguson Fenlason is useful not only for students of social work but also for everyone who uses the interview to gain information and acquire insight in the fields dealing with human adjustment.

The Integration Of The Negro Into The U. S. Navy, wirtten by Lt. Dennis D. Nelson, gives the story of the Navy’s approach to the bro-blem of racial prejudice in the United States.

Social Treatment In Probation And Delinquency is the second edition of Pauline Young’s frank and realistic examination into the complex social problems and tensions of American youth.

Industrial Sociology by Miller and Form is the first volume to provide a comprehensive treatment of the fast-growing field of industrial sociology. It is essentially a study of the interrelations between the work and the social milieu in which the worker moves.

Childhood And Society by Erik H. Erikson combines the insights of clinical psychoanalysis with a new approach in cultural anthropology. The author shows the social significance of childhood.

American Urban Communities by Wilbur C. Hailenbeck is a comprehensive study which includes population data from the 1950 census.

Of importance in anthropological research is Life In A Mexican Village by Oscar Lewis. This is a restudy of the Mexican village, Te-poxtlan. 20 years after the first study by Dr. Robert Redfield.

Soviet Attitudes Toward Authority by Margaret Mead la a survey, on different levels, of the nature of Soviet leadership today. Basic research was carried on in the Russian language by a group of anthropologists, psychologists, political scientists and historians, although direct study within the U. S. S. R. was impossible.

It’s Ike On Most Campuses.

(ACP) If the nation goes as most college students go on Nov. 4. Dwight D. Eisenhower is a cinch for President.    4

The ACP National Poll of Student Opinion asked students from all parts of the country: Which, candidate do you want to win the Presidential election? The results show a large majority for Eisenhower.

Eisenhower—57 percent.

Stevenson—33 percent.

Undecided—9 percent.

Only on some of the southern campuses does Stevenson have a majority. In Texas, though, students call themselves Democrats but favor Ike. This same tendency is apparent in Oklahoma.

A freshman coed at Oklahoma State Teachers college puts it this way, "I'm a Democrat, but this election I’m for Ike. I don’t think we could be any worse off under the Republicans."

, A Missouri sophomore in Home Economics feels "It .takes a military man to clean up the mess we’re in." But other students say they

don’t want a military man in the White House."

Most students—56 percent—say they agree with their parents in choice of candidates. Nineteen percent say they disagree, and 23 percent are not sure.

Perhaps the dilemma of those students still undecided is best summed up by a sophomore at Northeast Missouri State Teachers College. He says he’s a Democrat. Republican and independent.

And he adds ruefully. "Either candidate will probably send my friends and myself to the army."

Students Rate Religion First In Choosing Mate

When members of Marriage and Family class rated attributes they wanted most in a mate, religion was ranked highest with personality and love coming second and third.

Other characteristics listed in order of importance Were: understanding. provider, appearance, cooperation, emotional maturity, health, similar education. and homemaker.    

This class serves as a good sample of the entire college since there are 54 enrolled and all classifications. except freshman, are represented. Instructor of the class is Dr. D. W. Bittinger.

Bulldog Barks

coed was on campus over the weekend visiting with friends and taking a look at the college again.

Lois Rolfs and Bill Moore spent last Saturday at the home of Lois's parents. Mr. and Mrs. Walter Rolfs of Lorraine.

Last Saturday night Janet Rueh-len had a slumber party at her home here in town. Betty Bram-mell, Gerry Goering, Shirley Alexander, and Kathy Russell were all there. They cussed and discussed the game til the wee hours of the

.    morning. They must have been

waiting. In the- meantime, several pretty tired when they went to

bed. because Gerry brushed her teeth with shaving cream instead of tooth paste.

Bittingers Attend Camp In Oklahoma

Dr. D. W. Bittinger, president of Macollege. and family attended a family camp at Camp Spring Lake in southwest Oklahoma last weekend.

The theme of the camp was

Home and Family 'Life.”

The district camp was represented mostly, by the states of Oklahoma and Texas.

Dr. Bittinger stated that they had a very pleasant drive, to Oklahoma Saturday afternoon, and could hear the McPherson game all the way down to southwest Oklahoma.

Cafeteria Workers Are Early Risers

The earliest risers on campus in the mornings are probably the students that work in the cafeteria.

Thirteen students are regular workers this year in the cafeteria with several other students working as part time helpers.

Maxine Hanley, .junior, serves the vegetables from behind the counter. Serving the desserts and dipping the ice cream is Jo Ann Royer, senior. The bread, milk, and juice is kept out to be served by Maud Ditmars, sophomore.^.

Errand girl is Carole Davis, sophomore, who keeps the food .from the kitchen out on the counter for serving. Ina Ditmars, senior, scrapes the dirty dishes and takes them to the kitchen where Al Zun-kel, senior, _ washes the dishes and June Slough,-and Glendon Button, both juniors, dry them. Wiping the tables and trays is Alberta Eb-bert, sophomore. Don , Wogoner and Lee Hogle, juniors, wash and dry all of the pots and pans.

Don Butler is the caveman as he keeps the kitchen furnished with the supplies from the cave.

Dolores Sigle, junior, has the privilege of taking all the money at the end of the line by operating the cash register.

Iowa has more students represented working in the cafeteria than Kansas.    

Last Saturday when we pulled-from an under-dog score to a 2020 game, our boys really fought. Even the radio spectators got excited. Downtown at Miller - Kennedy’s, they had their radio blaring away, as fingers were crossed and most people were in suspense.

After the game was over and the boys were nearing town, a car pulled up along side the car Woody was in and he was told to flag the other cars down. Soon, all the football fellas’ cars were stopped and the heroes were told to go in as a group because a bonfire would be cars slowed down to sec what was the matter and Peel yelled out, “It’s okay, he isn’t hurt bad.’’—just to be onery.

They were greeted with cheers as the cheerleaders led the group. Their costumes were rather unusual. Don West had on dress slacks, white shirt and bow tie, Kathy Russell wore a red sweater and a plaid shirt, Ann Carpenter (substituting once again) had on jeans and Bob Wilson wore cords and a shirt—what a sight. Although the whole bonfire idea was impromptu, it brought yells from the crowd and happy smiles on the faces of the team and Woody.

It's a good thing the sophomore tug-o-war team didn’t wear bow ties and white shirts this year like last year’s soph team did, because it would have ruined them. Well, what can you expect with 223 pound men like Jim Dougherty on the freshmen team against 120 pound men on the sophomore’s side.

The green hats floated away as the freshman dragged the weaklings through the water.

Last weekend the Ladies Trio —Elsa Kurtz, La Faughn Hubbard, Margaret Baile—went to Wiley. Colo, to sing eight songs in one Sunday. A surprise awaited La-Faughn when she found her parents sitting in the congregation. Don West’s dad is the minister there.

A number of Iowans went back to Adel for the weekend. Lorene Marshall. JoAnn Royer, Ken Sheaf-fer, Robina Royer, Don and Donna Wagoner were the ones that went. A lot of their time was spent fooling around in Des Moines. Lorene got to cast her vote in the presi-dential election for the first time.

Since Mrs. Paul Sargent is in California and Peggy Sargent on quartet tour, Ann Carpenter and Marilee Grove have been “keeping house" for Mr. Sargent. As yet he hasn't had any ill effects from their cooking.

Has anyone been smelling a nauseating stench in the boys’ dorm? Wonder who smeared the limber-ger cheese on the registers

The kids stopped at Ina and Maud’s home up in Washington, Kans., and then journeyed on to Illinois with more Ditmars relatives. They rolled into Elgin about noon Saturday.

Maud and Ina, and all their relation attended their brother, Lloyd’s wedding Sunday afternoon.

From Elgin. Angie, Mildred, and Don took a train into Chicago. Mildred and Angie visited with Angie’s brother and wife, Sylvus and Martha (Lucore) Flora, who are at Bethany.

Don took off for the School of Nursing of the Presbyterian Hospital and just happened to stop in to see Shirley Wine. I guess Shirley turned from red to white, and .was just pretty surprised and shaky for several hours. Pleasant surprise. though, no less.

They left Elgin about 6:30 Sunday night, and along with about five flat tires, they arrived in Mac Monday noon, a tired and worn-out bunch of kids.

Small College Giants Tie Football Battle

McPherson College Bulldogs and William Jewell Cardinals battled with all they had last Saturday at Liberty. Mo., and the net results was a 20-20 tie. More than 4.000 frenzied spectators witnessed this battle between the two unbeaten titans of small college football and countless other fans listened to the game via radio.

At one time in the second quarter the Bulldogs were trilling by the seeming insurmountable score of 21-7 and were allowing William Jewell to gain yards almost at will. Then something happened. That missing spark that the team was looking for was provided by Gene Smith. With third down and better than 10 yards to go on Mac's 25, Gene rot off a terrific kick that traveled 55 yards in the air and rolled to a stop on William Jewell's one-yard line.

The second half was an almost complete reversal of the play the first half. The Bulldogs, finding themselves in an unusual position at halftime, that of being behind, took all of the second half trying to win the game, with a valiant uphill battle. Two costly fumbles kept the Bulldogs from completely fulfilling their desires.

The defensive unit put on a great stand in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. The Cardinals pushed down to Mac’s five, but there the line stiffened and took the ball away from William Jewell.

To single out any McPherson players in this game would be futile. All of the team played inspired football. However, several of the Bulldogs stood out especially on defense. Taking a brutal beating on every end run. there were at times six players . leading the play for William Jewell, and yet stopping the William Jewell attack cold the second half was Mac's two ends. Bob Peel and Ed Frantz. Another player who was in on a majority of tackles, some of them decisive, was Lowell Hoch, junior tackle from Dwight, Kans.. and the "Grandad” of the team.

Eddie Ball, of course, again sparked the offensive unit. But the surprise of the day was the way McPherson was able to go to the air lanes when their running attack failed. Wayne Blickenstaff connected on six of 11 passes one of which was good for a touchdown.

William Jewell started out fast in the game with a quick first quarter touchdown. Cook went over from the one yard line after the Cardinals had marched 87 yards in nine plays. The try for the extra point failed.

Eddie Ball fielded William Jewell’s kickoff on his 15 yard line and with the help of several key blocks went an the way down the sidelines to tie up the game, McSpad-den converted to make the score 7-6 in favor of Mac.

William Jewell’s offense had yet to be solved by the Bulldogs, though and after the kickoff the Cardinals Went 78 yards in 7 plays with Happy scoring from the five yard line. He also kicked the extra point to make the score 13-7 at the end of the first quarter.

Early in the second quarter the Cardinal’s scored again, this time using the airways. They scored from the 20 on a pass from Happy to Fisher. The conversion made the score 20-7.

With about three minutes left to play in the half McPherson took over the ball on their own 22. Wayne Blickenstaff mixed in passing and running plays superbly to cover the 78 yards in 11 plays with Dwight McSpadden going over the last five yards and then kicking the extra point to make the halftime score 20-14.

- Twice in the third quarter McPherson’s hopes dimmed when the elusive pigskin squirted out of player’s hands and were recovered by the Cardinals. The first time the Bulldogs were on the Jewell 37 yard line and the second time they were clear down on the Jew

ell four.

In the final period the Bulldogs captallsed on a Jewell fumble. Mac had penetrated down to the William Jewell 22 where the, lest the boll on downs. On the Cardinals first play, the, tumbled with Me-pheraoo recovering. Blickenstaff

pasted the last 11 yards to Bechtel to tie the score at 20 all.

That was all the scoring for the day. William Jewell drove down to McPherson's five yard line in the closing minutes before the Bulldog line stiffened and held. The Bulldogs got the ball back to their own 40 before time ran out.

Police Escort Team To William Jewell

The Macollege football team had a thrilling experience over the last weekend, when the Kansas and Missouri State Highway Patrol gave them escort on part of their trip to the football game with Wm. Jewell at Liberty. Mo.

The team left McPherson Friday night, and stayed overnight at Ottawa. Ks. It was at Ottawa that Coach ’’Woody” and the Kansas State Highway Patrol met. and the Patrol offered to give escort to Kansas? City. The team, in six cars driven by Coach Woody. Guy Hayes Howard Todd, Garth Ell wood. Eddie Ball, and Wayne Blickenstaff. were met at Kansas City by the Missouri- Highway Patrol who escorted them through the city at high speed.

On the highway to Liberty, some of the cars could not keep up with the patrol car going at over 70 mph.

It was a great thrill for the boys to have patrol escort, and to travel at speeds more than they could cope with. Several times they had narrow escapes and one boy remarked. "It was fun while it lasted, but I would hate to do it again."

As the football season moved Into the halfway point of the race last week, some notable upsets occurred that might be worthy of mention here. Probably the major one was the entirely unforeseen victory by Iowa U. over Ohio S.. 8-0. This was Iowa’s first conference victory

since mid 1850.

Upsets were also registered to a greater or lesser extent in Purdue's defeat of Illinois. West Virginia s victory over Pittsburgh, USC's win from California,' and Columbia’s tie with Army.

However, several of the nation s powers continued their winning ways. Notable were the victories posted by the “Big Three" of col-ege football this year.

Michigan State’s three offensive backfields alternated to overwhelm Pennsylvania S. 34-7. Maryland used the air lanes extensively to trounce LSU 34-6. And Oklahoma U. made mincemeat of weak Kansas S. with a 49-6 score. Inci-. dentally Leake and McPhail. who alternate kicking extra points for O. U.. together have now made 30 extra points in a row.

Now for a glance at this week s games:

Alabama over Georgia Texas A & M over Arkansas Army over VMI Florida over Auburn UCLA over California Colorado U. over Utah Columbia over Cornell Denver over Drake Georgia Tech over Duke Michigan over Illinois Oklahoma U. over Iowa S. Minnesota over Iowa U.

GOP Scores Victor At KWU

The student body, faculty, and staff of Kansas Wesleyan university of Salina. like Ike for President.

A straw poll on the campus early last week revealed that over 70 percent of the "voters" prefer Dwight D. Eisenhower and a Republican administration. About two-thirds of the cligibles voted in the mock election, to give a good cross-section of campus opinion.

The poll was sponsored by the Advance, student newspaper, and the international relations club.

The result of the election was a landslide vote for the man from Abilene. Out of 211 ballots cast in the poll by faculty and students, the Republican party drew 147. In the faculty vote there were 13 for Gov. Stevenson and 22 for Eisenhower, or a margin of less than two to one for Eisenhower. In the student vote there were 125 for Eisenhower and 41 for the Governor. or slightly more than three to one.

Impression From A Pressbox

By Don Hoch

Wilson’s Team Still Undefeated

Last week Bob Bean and I were asked by the local radio station KNEX to go along to the William Jewell game. We were to go as spotters for the announcers which brought the game to those who were unable to attend.

The day was perfect for a homecoming game. Crisp in the morning, but nice and warm for both the players and spectators after dinner.

We arrived at Jewell field approximately 9:30 a. m. and set up our equipment Then, we watched .the parade around the town square. Since it was William Jewell who was making all the noise, I wanted Mac to win ail the worse. I believe only a spectator can have that feeling of wanting to win so badly, because he feels so helpless.

After dinner, radio station WDAF of Kansas City approached us for a spotter from our school, and was selected. My job was to keep the announcer informed of who was

in the game, who carried the ball and who made the tackles.

The hardest task was to sit there and keep my emotions halfway concealed'and be up on what the announcer was expecting. I wanted to yell my head off but all I could do was to tear my hair, beat my fists together and watch. I ran every run. blocked every block and made every tackle, inside me. One time I almost pushed the table over on an end run. The game was one of the best I have ever seen.

A student from William Jewell also spotted. After a fumble we made one time, he looked over at me with a relieved look and I knew what he felt like when they missed the field goal attempt in the latter part of the game.

When the game was over, were both relieved, but both thought our team should have won.

Suddenly the announcer shoved the mike in my face and asked me what I thought of the game. What would you say?
