The cornerstone of the white Maryland marble structure was laid July 4; 1848. The monument was erected by the Washington National Monument Society with funds obtained by popular subscription.

Set into the interior walls of the 81.120 ton structure are 189 memorial stones from foreign countries, the 49 states, cities and organizations.

Virginia Gentleman Becomes National Leader

of an army of peasantry at war with their King.

Dorchester Heights. Brooklyn Valley Forge. Lee. Clinton. Cornwallis — what memories! Lastly, a Cincinnatus grown bent and gray in service leaving his farm to head his country’s civil affairs and to give confidence and stability to an infant government by his wisdom and character.

Here, with bared heads, let us take leave of him — a farmer, but “the greatest of good men and the best of great men — George Washington.”

V. F. F.

One December day in the year 1788 a Virginia gentleman sat before his desk in his mansion beside the Potomac, writing a letter.

He was a man of fifty-six, tall and of strong figure, but with shoulders a trifle stooped, enormously large hands and feet, sparse grayish hair, a countenance somewhat marred by lines of care and marks of smallpox — the kind of man to whom one could entrust anything.


It was erroneously printed in last week’s paper that Bob Wise had graduated in ’54 and Anita (McSpadden) Wise had graduated in ’54. Bob actually graduated in ’56 and Anita in ’57.

Dell Will Attend D. C. Seminar

Professor S. M. Dell, dean of men. will attend the Adult Seminar in Washington. D. C. sponsored by the Church of the Brethren. Prof. Dell will leave directly from the clinic meetings in Iowa.

Pondering With The President

Where Are You Looking?

“Two men looked through prison bars;

One saw mud, the other stars.”

The opportunity for seeing was the same for both men. One was encouraged and uplifted as he looked, the other became downcast and discouraged. The difference depended upon which way they looked.

But which way they looked depended upon the men. Some people perpetually look up; others continuously look down.

At McPherson College, or anywhere else, it is possible to make friends for a life-time, to discover new lines of exploration and thinking, to lay the groundwork for an increasingly broad and beautiful future.

On the other hand it is possible to discover that people are not as good as we hoped, to be unhappy about food, lodging, heat, snow, ice, examinations term papers, and to tie up a lot of time in talking about these things.

Which way are you looking?

Man’s Wife Is His Savings

What is a wife worth? This question is answered by an exhibit fixed by the Family Finance Class on second floor Harnly. The theme is “Man’s Best Investment: His Wife.”

The following is a list of household jobs a wife saves her husband — free of charge.

A wife is a private nurse who could be paid $3,700; and a veterinarian worth $9,000. By being a general housekeeper she saves $3.120, and $3,700 by being his secretary.

As a home economist, she is worth $4500, and as a cook and baker $7,290. The husband saves $2,080 by having her for a laundress, and $3,250 as a dressmaker.

She saves $3,500 as a hostess and $8,000 as a purchasing agent. Being a chauffeur, she saves $3,300.

As she washes dishes and plants the earth she saves $5,380; and os the handyman, she saves $3.700.

Husbands!!.Did you realize how much wives are worth?

Connell’s Corner

Someone at Macalester College in St. Paul has been putting strange things in campus post office boxes, the MAC WEEKLY reports.

The unusual objects have ranged from a glass of water to a dissected frog.

The postmistress is as mystified as anybody, but she does say that seeing so many smiles on students gives her morally a real boost.

Do automobiles and scholarship mix? This question has been confronting educators across the nation.         

No, says Madison High School, Rexburg, Idaho. A study made of the four-year grade averages of a typical Madison senior class and car drivers showed the following;

No straight A student had the use of a car. Only 15% of the B students drove a car to school.

Of C students, 41 % brought cars to school.

Of D students, 71% drove to school.

Of E students, 83% drove to school.

As a result of the study, Rexburg’s Board of Education adopted a resolution on August 11, 1958, which specified that—

(1) Junior and senior high school students who drive cars to school must make written application to the School Board showing the reason or need to drive their cars to school. Those granted permission will receive student permits.

(2)    Students driving cars to school on the student permits must park them in designated areas,

(3)    Students failing to comply with established rules and regulations will have their student permits revoked . ..

The University of Virginia has recently banned all student-owned automobiles from the campus because of their adverse effect on scholarship. Prince-on University has forbidden car privileges for students since before 1945.

The month of February has produced some unusual weather. Sounds of ,thunder and flashes of lightning dotted the sky earlier last week.

The showers, although they first formed a coating of treacherous ice, brought welcomed moisture to the dry thirsting soil.

Macollege Pep Band Plays Marches, Jazz

By Faus, Foley, and Harris

And it came to pass in those days that the Ottawan Empire arose in the East, full of arrogance and conceit, and they waxed powerful and conquered many foes.

And always they entered the court with boastful chants, and always they left with gloating and songs of praises.

But in those days there also arose in the West in the House of McPherson, mighty warriors, fleet of foot, keen of eye, and tenacious as Bulldogs. And they made baskets in good measure, dunked down, arched through, and laid in in great abundance.

But the Ottawans ravished the land, and verily, for twenty-six battles they overcame their opponents — by good fortune escaping the wrath which was to come. And it seemed that none could stand before them.

But McPherson pondered these things in their hearts, and ate a good breakfast.

In the fullness of time, the Ottawans swooped down from the East and did invade the court of McPherson. And a great cloud of witnesses gathered round about to see this thing which had been foretold and written as a sign on the doorposts of the land.

And the Ottawans chanted blasphemy, numbering their fallen foes.

Then the battle raged, the trumpet sounded, and the people shouted, “Fight!”

And the opponents fell upon each other with a vengeance, the battle waged up and down the

And when the opponents paused in mid battle to rest, the spectators from the House of McPherson ate and strengthened themselves.

The battle resumed, and the vigor of the warriors from McPherson did mount up like eagles, they ran and were not weary, they fought and did not faint.

And when the heat of the bottle came, the prophecy was fulfilled, and McPherson smote their foes with a mighty stroke.

The Ottawan Empire fell, its tally stopped at twenty-six, and it was buried with a stick of carrot through its heart.
