Macollege Student Returns After Year In Germany

A walk which turned out to be a hike of 24 miles was one of the many experiences that Elsie Lu-core had as an exchange student abroad.

Elsie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Lucore, went as an exchange student to Germany in July, 1956. The CBYF and Peace Group paid half of her expenses.

On July 3, 1956. the ship with Elsie and four other exchange students sailed from Quebec to Europe. After eleven days at sea, the ship docked in Bremerhaven. Germany. The group was met there by Esther Mohler, head of Student Exchange.

A brief orientation was held in Kassel before the students went to their new homes. Two of the students went to Austria and the others were in different parts of Germany. Elsie’s new home was in Bielefeld, Germany.

She arrived in Bielefeld on July 18. about a week before the end of the summer semester of school. This week she spent at the school. For the next three

months, until the fall semester started on Nov. 1, she worked In an epileptic colony of 7,000 in Bethel, Germany.

School daze began; however, vacation followed closely. On March 1 school was dismissed for a two month vacation. During this time Elsie visited Anneliese and Eugen Lupri and Christa Koch and did some traveling.

She attended a student exchange conference in Geneva, Switzerland; took a two week study trip to Italy; and worked with Arlene Merkey in a refugee camp in Linz, Austria.

In Bielefeld on May 1 the summer semester of school started. It was in session until August 1.

At this school of approximately 200 students (only around 20 of which were girls), Elsie took 21 hours the first semester and 19 the second. Her classes dealt with Bible, church history, and systematic theology.

She was a member of the choir and a teacher in an English Club.

At the end of the school year.

Teams will have 5 boys and 3 girl members. Married teams will have 4 couples. One faculty member will be allowed on each team.

Games will be played on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights, starting promptly at 6:15, 7. and 7:45.

Playing a hard fought game all the way the Bulldogs defeated the Sterling Warriors in the last few minutes of the game by a score of 14-7 last Friday night.

Two passes from Stucky to Delk accounted for Mac's touchdowns. The first touchdown was tallied late in the second quarter. The conversion was good giving a 7-0 lead to the Bulldogs at half time. With time running out in the game the second TD was scored.

In the first down category the Bulldogs made 16 as compared to Sterling’s 10.

Sterling led the field in passes attempting 16 and completing seven while only seven were tried by the Bulldogs. However the Bulldogs completed four passes giving them a percentage of 57 per cent.

Rushing plays netted 230 yards for the Bulldogs and only 77 yards for Sterling. Sterling gained 137 yards through' the air while the Bulldogs attained 39 yards.

Both teams should be commended on the fact that only a total of 15 yards were lost by penalties. This shows that although it was a hard fought game it was also clean fought.

Pondering With The President . . .

Who Is Really Hurt?

hard, look at the expressions on the faces of the little children who must do this. Their motivation is to establish freedom for all our children, both white and black for the days of the future.

Note also the expressions on the faces of their mothers; they too must suffer.

3. All the Nations of the World America now has the opportunity to lead the world in a remarkable way. Indeed, like it or not, the events of history have mode America the leading nation in the world.

Several ideologies thrust upward into our world for supremacy, Since we all live so closely to each other, one will likely need presently to become dominant Shall democracy and freedom be the leading ideology?

All the world is hurt when America falters in her leadership at this point.

Dynamiting a school because of a little handful of Negro students, a Governor Faubus, fixed guns, jeering mobs—all of these speak more resoundingly for the Communist way of life than do volumes written by the Communists themselves, or a score of Communist youth cells.

What, then, of the future?

We need education, prayer, courage in order to make longer steps toward the good future.

We can take those steps only if our spirits are attuned to God and our hands are in His. We must completely surrender ourselves to his leadership.

May God show us the way!

Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits. — Thomas A. Edison

Read and heed the Spec ads.

Mr. and Mrs. Ira N. H. Brammell. McLouth. Kas. announce

the engagement of their daughter Judy, to Mr. Edward Butler, son of Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Butler. Eldora, Iowa.

Judy is a sophomore and Ed is a senior at Macollege.

Our newspapers in general seem to be quite pre-oecupied with accounts of the discords and occasional acts of violence which attend the racial question. These indicate our painful attempt to live up to the precepts of the Constitution which our progenitors set up for us a long time ago.

Some of us experienced much joy when the news releases recently contained a long list of cities, schools, and areas where, in a quiet way, forward steps toward integration and justice, as concerns the different people who God has created, are being made.

While we thank God fervently for such forward moving steps, whether they occur in America or in any other part of the world, all of us must feel some concern that the steps forward are still too few and too short.

Who really is hurt when steps toward equality and justice falter?

1.    Always first and foremost, the people who fail to take the forward steps.

Whereas it would be hard to convince those who have been enslaved and oppressed that this is true, yet it has been demonstrated again and again that those doing the sinning have in the end suffered more than those sinned against.

Those enslaved often become amenable to the touch of the hand of God and walk close to him. Those who oppress become hardened. callous, and presently perish as all who become that way must.

This has been demonstrated by the history of Hebrew people, not only in ancient Egypt, but over and over again even until our own times.

The United States would have been infinitely better off if slavery had never entered here. Its scars still mark us whether we live in the North or in the South. Our integration agonies in both North and South stem from it. Some of its blights will be on us all forever. It will take us generations yet to overcome what it did to our economy and to our spirits.

May God help those of us who do the sinning when oppression of any kind takes place!'

2.    Those Who Are Oppressed How gallantly these people suffer! Our forefathers at Valley Forge; the gallant dead in Hungary; Martin Luther King in Montgomery, Ala.; little Negro boys ond girls who must go to school through jeering mobs or even approach fixed military guns which will stop them.

Futile Philosophies

Read and heed the Spec ads.

What’s virtue in man can’t be vice in a cat. — Gail Hamilton.

By Norris and Carl

Dear Freshman:

In case you have not had the opportunity of reading this col umn before, we wish to introduce you to ‘‘Don’t Read It,” a column presented as a public service by Norris and Cart, two typical maladjusted upper classmen.

Because of letters to the editor, and increasing public pressure, the great team of Norris and Carl was forced to quit writing second semester of last year.

Now however, the worm has turned. CARL IS THE EDITOR. So today. Norris and Carl strike back. Even now giant presses are roaring and pounding, and sleek black trunks are racing through the night so this new version may reach you.

You frenzied, frustrated freshmen have been run through the mill of entrance exams, and are in a good position to see that they are much too involved and complicated for this modern day and age. We have, therefore, designed a new, simpler, more streamlined test.

So we present to you the Harms and Harris Handy Hentrance He-xam. Simply underline the correct answer, or fill in the blanks.

1.    Roosevelt started the new deal because: (a) Herbert Hoover advised it, (b) Wall Street came a-tumblin down, (c) no one could open.

2.    McCarthy was a Communist for the FBI. True — False.

3.    Dr. Raymond L. Flory is a stool pigeon. True — False.

4.    We are likely to pass History. False — False.

By Fans and Foley

This, dear students, is a column written for the purpose of passing along the wisdom of the ages (Dark Ages) in capsule form, for the purposes of informing students, and disturbing psychiatrists.

Our main job, however, is to take up extra space.

Our huge, monster staff (made up of two monsters) after much research, has come up with the following foolosophies for all new or otherwise handicapped students.

Spend your money only for important tilings — books can be stolen.

Gel at least eight hours of sleep — almost any class period will do.

Find out how the other half lives — visit Dotzour.

Don’t forget to write home — your parents will find out anyway.

Really use your brain — leave no stone unturned.

Study in a good atmosphere —

bathe regularly.

Although no class as such is offered, every student should learn to read.

Treat your books with care — some tree died that you might learn.

Take advantage of every opportunity — drop history now.

Please don't kill the flies in your room — they keep the gnats under control.

Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today — start packing.

Closing (it’s about time) with our motto, “A penny saved is unusual,” we remain F&F
