Three Day Run Tomorrow

McPherson College Players’ Club will present the fast moving three-act farce, “See How They Run.” in the popular horse shoe type of staging.

The first performance will be tomorrow at 8:00 in the Student Union room. It will also be presented Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 24 and 25. Tonight is the final practice and dress rehearsal.

In the horse-shoe theater the audience is seated right next to the stage on three sides. This heightens the effect of the production and enables everyone to have a ring-side scat.

Horse-shoe staging differs from arena staging only in the fact  that the audience is seated only on three sides where as in arena staging the audience sits on all four sides.

Arena staging was started by the Greeks and has recently been revived. There ere now permanent arena theaters in Paris and the University of Washington.

Because of the unusual seating there will not be reserved seats but a system of first come first served. Tickets are on sale in the college business office.

Prices arc $1.00 for adults and $.50 for students. Macollege students may use their activity tickets but they must be validated at the business office for date of performcnce.

The play "See How They Run” is a farce comedy written by Philip King. There is no question about the title of this smash London hit.

So swift in the action, so involved the situations, so ribtickling the plot that at its finish audiences are left as exhausted from laughter as from a foot race.

The cast in order of appearance are Ida. (a maid), played by Karen York, Miss Skillion, by Joan Walters, The Reverend Lionel Toop, by Nod Grove.

Penelope Toop, by Faye Fields, Clive Winton, by Glen Faus, The Intruder, by Terril Phenice, The Bishop of Lax, by Kay Wallerich, The Reverend Arthur Humph-ery, by Loren Rehyer, Sergeant Towers is played by Larry Hayes. The play is directed by Prof. Coulson, assistant professor of literature, and the stage manager is Eddy Longmire.

Thanksgiving Day will soon be here with all its excitement. While we are enjoying the traditional Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, dressing, pumpkin pie and all the trimmings let us not forget what Thanksgiving Day really stands for and get into the spirit of real thanksgiving.

Let us give thanks for Christian colleges and the opportunity to attend them, and for the Christian professors who teach us by being a living example.

Let us remember that we are among only 30 per cent of the young people of our age who have the privilege to attend college in the United States.

Landscaping made easier has been an inspiration for construction of a descriptive booklet and display case developed by Mrs. Thelma Clouse, senior, McPherson.

Mrs. Clouse, assisted by her husband, a carpenter and minister. especially designed the project to aid next semester’s landscaping students.

Roast Pheasant For Thanksgiving

“We are having roast pheasant with all the trimmings for Thanksgiving dinner,” says Melvin Swinger, second semester sophomore from Dexter, Mo.

The unusual course for Thanksgiving was made possible os a result of a recent hunting trip Melvin made to western Kansas. Melvin hunted for two days and returned with a two-day limit.

"Thanksgiving is the time of year we can be thankful for summer’s harvest, life, democracy, and the opportunity to attend a Christian college,” said Melvin as he expressed his feeling of the season.

Mrs. Swinger, Mary, is a senior this year and spends her time keeping house, studying, and taking care of their three children. Mary hopes to teach school next year.

Melvin is a brother of Glen Swinger, former McPherson College director of public relations. Glen is now pastor of the Roanoke. La. Church of the Brethren.

Giving Thanks

McPherson College is presenting a TV program on Thursday, Dec. 4. The program will be a panel discussion on the Christian Liberal Arts College -and its athletic program.

Those who will present the program are Dale Brown as moderator. Dr. Burton Metzler, Sid Smith, and two students, Jerry McPherson and Dick Bittinger.

in Mrs. Clous's work and found on the campus are the Ginkgo or maidenhair tree, the Jujube, and the Chinaberry tree.

The Ginkgo tree is an unusual Macampus resident located just north of the library. It appears to be resistant to about every thing including reproduction.

The tree will scarcely grow in the wild, but grows well when cultivated. It is highly resistant to smoke, dust, drought, wind, and ice and is free from insects, fungi, and disease. Its unique feature is its fan shaped leaves.

History relates the importance of the Jujube gree, as a source of fruit and shows it to have been cultivated for 4,000 years in China. Its origin is believed to have been in Syria. There is a Jujube tree just west of the Liberal Arts Building.

The Himalyan native China-berry tree is another shade producing campus resident. It is easily recognized by the large pods whose seeds were once used in Greek missions for rosaries.

For This I Am Thankful

By Dr. D. W. Bittinger

Last summer we saw children in refugee camps who had been born in the camp and had lived there all of the five, six, or eight years of their lives. They had lived with three other families to a room and never known privacy. Some had no parents. Most had little to hope for.

On Thanksgiving occasion, for what are you thankful?

I am thankful for clothing against the winter and for shoes for my feet.

I am thankful for bread to guard off hurting hunger.

I am thankful for doctors and for medicine when illness occurs.

I am thankful for parents who care.

I am thankful that I can look up at the sky and see it blue and beautiful, rather than a place from which death might fall.

I pray God that these things for which I am thankful may spread to others who do not have them.

Building Bridges

An old grey headed man is traveling down a dusty road. He has been traveling all day and just ns the sun begins to set he comes to a dangerous river with wild and raging waters.

Although within a few minute darkness will set in, the old man begins immediately to build a bridge. Presently another traveler comes along.

“I know a place down stream where we can cross safely,” he tells the old man, "Come let us go there and cross before night falls.”

"Oh, my journey ends here,” says the old man. "When I have completed the bridge I will lie down and sleep.” But, an eager young lad follows me not far behind and he must cross the bridge in the morning.

“Thanks For The Memories”

By Chet Peckover

Success in dealing with other, people is like making rhubarb pie — use all the sugar you can. then double it.

At least 11 million Americans suffer the pain of arthritis and reheum-atism, including 30,000 children and adolescents each year. Birth defects afflict 248,000 infants annually, of whom 34,000 die within the first four weeks.

A teacher who regularly makes a practice of hunting up the most unattractive child and whispering in her ear, "You're getting prettier every day," says it al ways works: almost at once the child begins to blossom into something close to beauty.

“Thanks for the memories” may well express the thoughts of many individuals as autumn colors fade and another Thanksgiving season is inaugurated.

Memories of the bountiful harvests from pilgrim days to our present abundant harvest is an inspiration for rejoicing and hope for continued prosperity in a spiritual as well as a physical sense.

The vivid autumn colors will soon be a memory, but the green winter wheat-peaking up across the Kansas plains is a pleasant reminder that life continues regardless of the many signs of forth coming winter months.

Life is a pleasant experience for most of us and means of expressing gratitude for it is often difficult so:

When I pray on Thanksgiving Day

And thank God for His wonder-ous care.

I want Him to know how happy I am.

I want to say thanks for blessings untold.

For birds in the meadow.

For wind rustled leaves.

And clouds on the horizon:

For other things I cannot say In such a common mortal's way But most of all.

I want to say.

For Thy great love. Lord.

I thank you, today.

By Clifford Tusing

(Editor’s note: This article was published in the July 6, 1958 issue of the Gospel Messenger.)

God is.

God is a living God.

God is the Creator. As He was in the beginning, so is He still in the process of creating that which is noble and valuable.

He is constantly at work. Everyone is a sculptor incessantly shaping their lives according to their highest plans and dream.

It seems that the character of God and the constitution of man demands us to discover and examine our complete human possibilities for beauty, truth, and virtue and to assist others in finding theirs.

In the deepest sense of this purpose, I believe that God requires us to encourage and support anyone who is sincerely leading and helping people to become matured beings regardless of how their culture has formed the customs and traditions of their religious ceremonies.

God requires us to seek truth in all phases of life, lead under the belief that knowledge is acquired best by constructive criticism of experience with reason and vice-versa.

The maps which we have to steer our course were formed by the Hebrew prophets, by Greek philosophers, by Christian theologians and many others.

Likewise, I believe that each individual must cooperate with

the Creator in developing the universal human values and we can do this through the experiences of everyday living.

We must love our families. One of the basic duties of the Christian is to help children grow and mature into people who are able to love and forgive — who by having a deep-rooted faith in God, are free from fear, prejudice and hatred.

Christians must learn to respect and tactfully criticize and strive to improve the world in which we live.

All problems, whether of social, philosophical, personal or international nature, can be solved through human conversation. This docs not mean in deceiving speeches for positions of power, not in heated arguments, nor in faultfinding remarks but through knowledge of facts and a sincere mutual desire to find a way out. Every conversation can provide a chance for the transmitting and transforming power of God to operate.

Finally I believe that when the sculptor (man) acquires a spirit of awareness to the problems of life and is continually growing and developing a creative personality, he is discovering the way of life which is known as Christianity and love.

Trio Cancels Trips

All trips of the Ladies Trio hove been canceled until after Christmas, due to student teaching. according to John Sheets, public relations director.
