Mac Bulldogs Scalp Braves In Homecoming Game, T3-12

After the half-time intermission the Braves came back strong and evened up the ball game with

9:35 remaining on the clock. Yna-cio Oritz. a freshman, went over for the TD. The try for the extra point was no good.

With approximately the same time remaining in the fourth quarter. Oritz again scored for the Braves. The conversion attempt failed to pass through the goal post.

With time running out and the Mac crowd beginning to worry, Ken Stucky came through with the much needed touchdown. The pass caught by Willits in the end zone buttoned it up for the Bulldogs.

The remaining four minutes were long ones for the Bulldogs, but they held their ground and the Braves were unable to score again.

Fellows who drive with one arm are usually headed for the church aisle. Some will walk down, and some will be carried.

Pondering With The Preindent . . .

God Did It For Us

how closer to God.

We felt like inviting students to come down if they were worried or distraught or nervous, just to stand for awhile as the sun set. or as the moon smiled down, or in the heat of the day. and let some of God's peace flow in.

God Is a poet. God is a musician. God is beauty. God makes beauty.

God is love.

God does all of this for His children.

I am His child, you are His child.

In our back yard there are two oak trees, and in our front yard, three.

Two of them turned gradually, waxy, crimson, as the fall came on. One morning the snow fell and clung wetly to each crimson leaf. The blood red peeking through the snow white as the tree shimmered in the morning breeze was more beautiful than one can paint or describe.

At the opposite side of the lawn, as if purposefully arranged by an overseeing artist, was a golden oak tree. These leaves also were waxy and reflected beautifully the light of the sun. In this tree there was a contrast of golden and white, instead of crimson and white.

These trees merged beautifully into a background of green; and the shades of green were many. Underneath was a lovely carpet of grass turning slightly brown.

This beauty deserved being painted; it was also ..the delight of the photographer.

But beauty is not only for painting and for photographing. It is to be stood in the midst of and absorbed.

On our back lawn it was possible to stand with your feet planted in the midst of this beauty and to sense it flowing into all of your pores and lifting your soul.

Irene and I would go out occasionally and stand in the moonlight. looking at this and trying to become a part of it.

Some observers would say. “All of this happens by chance. This is nature. This is only the turning of the seasons, the coming of the fall.”

Those who know better, know that God loves beauty. That in addition to saying. “God is love.” one also can say. “God is beauty-”

And those whose souls are sensitive can absorb some of. God’s beauty through their feet and hands, indeed through all of their senses. And as they do it they can feel themselves drawn some

The driftwood for the arrangements were furnished by Mrs. Wesley DeCoursey, instructor in Design in Home Economics Dept. She got the wood from areas around Lake Kanopolis, Lake Inman, and the sand dunes of Lake Michigan.

How To Shoo The Flu

advisable. They help you get the flu right now. during nine-weeks test week.

If these precautions come too late, and you get the flu anyway. go to see the nurse at once ‘especially if you are a boy.) She can’t give you a cure for the flu. because there isn’t any. but it’s not every day you have an excuse to talk to her.

To get over the flu, go to bed at once and stay there till the fever leaves or someone yells Rook!"

Also, drink plenty of juices. We recommend orange juice, grape juice, wheat juice, rice juice, kick-a-poo joy juice, water, and fire water.

It is a good idea to infect as many people as possible with the flu. This will lower the curves in all the classes on the nine-weeks tests and also will give you some company up In the dorm.

Some subtle methods of infecting people are: Cough or sneeze just as you meet a person on the sidewalk.

Infect their food, get a job in the cafeteria.

Invite everyone into your room for a pop com party, close all the doors and windows and sneeze continuously.

Old Sharp Hall Was Once A Bright Dream For Mac

By Norris and Carl

Students, beware. You are in danger. A terrible menace threatens your health, your very life. M’s the all new 1956 model swept wing flu bug with the highest hearse power ever.

It has the new long, low styling. designed to lay you low for a long time.

This year it features several new lines: the Asiatic, the Sput-nikatic. the Arcticatic, Commu-nisticactic. and just plain Attic flu. all designed to put more money in your druggist’s pocket.

It is important to avoid catching one of these flu varieties. We have done exhaustive re-search into the matter (meaning that we caught the flu) and have come up with these techniques for preventing the flu.

First, get plenty of sleep. But try to learn to sleep without a pillow, because it makes the professors very suspicious when you bring a pillow to class.

Second, keep your body in good shape. Refer to paragraph 14 of last week’s column for instructions on how to give your body the correct shape.

Third, avoid crowds. It’s more fun to pair off in couples anyhow.

Fourth, eat the correct foods. If you don't have a car. maybe you can ride downtown with someone else.

Fifth, in case of rain or other adverse weather, stay in your room. Other adverse weather is interpreted to mean any weather that occurs on test days.

Sixth, eat nutritious, energy-packed foods. We recommend Colorado wheat and Louisiana rice. Eating these foods is very beneficial, especially to our dads who are farmers and are putting us through school.

Seventh. Asiatic flu shots are

The Human Sea

But the sun will still be shining When the common people rule; And virtue is augmented In the Kindergarten school. And the people will be shouting.

Even tho' no debts are paid; Love and virtue exact nothing For their sacrifices made. Wars! of course there are none.

Why should justice call a war? And bring two nations fighting.

With no knowledge what it’s for. Of course there will be sorrow;

Restitution hurts the heart;

God Mammon cannot stand the test.

When justice makes a start.

This should start a minor epidemic, and might even result in closing school down for a few days.

Now we must close before the American Medical Society sends a committee out after us.

Keep watching for T.E.O.T.S. It is getting closer and closer.

Seventy years ago. Sharp Hall was as bright a dream in the minds of Macollege students as new Sharp Hall is today. It existed only on paper, but the infant college was hopeful that the new building would soon become a reality.

Sharp Hall had its actual beginning in the spring of 1888, when the foundation was laid. Occupants of Old Fahnestock were rather relieved to know that they would have a new building on campus. At that time. Fahnestock was the only building at the college; and it included the men’s dormitory, women’s dormitory, administrative offices, classrooms, kitchen, and dining hall.

Students at the college made the bricks for Sharp at a nearby brickworks.

Although plans were for a well-constructed four-story building, progress was impaired by the Panic of 1893. Funds could not be obtained for completion of Sharp Hall, and the elaborate plans could not materialize as expected.

Dr. S. B. Fahnestock, who had much to do with the promotion and erection of the new building. wrote to many individuals and organizations, asking for ”a penny for a brick.”

Enough money was obtained in this manner to finish two floors and to prepare a tar roof, Classes were first held in the basement of Sharp Hall, which also served as gymnasium and

science hall. The north side of that floor, which now houses business offices, was once the site of many basketball games.

Science classes met where the Dog House is today.

Even as a two-story structure. Sharp was not completely satisfactory; and the campaign to finish the building was renewed. Students at the college during those years will recall carrying buckets and tubs to catch drips during rainy weather.

By 1901, the depression was somewhat alleviated, and Sharp Hall’s third and final story was added.

Today. Sharp Hall with her cracked walls and slanting floors is considered old and useless. Tired and aged, she waits for the new building which will replace her as the center of campus life.
