Pondering With The President

When The Frost Is Off

By Dr. D. W. Bittinger

When the frosts are over and the snows are gone, the whole earth begins to lift and writhe with new life.

This is a hard time for students.

“It's too nice to study! How can you sit over a book or typewriter when the whole outdoors is calling?’' It is good that Spring and Easter tie together. They both mean new life. For a student, “those lessons” are the way to new knowledge and. truth Springtime should renew the call to excellence Easter should add a new depth of quality to the search for truth.    *

It is not just facts we see; it is more; it is truth real Truth, Eternal Truth.

Springtime or Easter should help us in the search.

Sea Of Matrimony Rough For The Young Couple

self-assurance will minimize the temptation to "run to mamma" when the tough decisions come along.

Miss Russell thinks it pays in the long run for the young men to do their military service, and for girls to get a job and work for a few years — especially if they want to learn orderliness, self-discipline, and a respect for money.

Heartshaped Flowers Bring Hawaiian Cheer

Lillian Aotaki, sophomore from Lahaina Maui, Hawaii, received Red Anthuriums on St. Valentine’s Day from her parents in Hawaii.

Red Anthuriums are heartshaped flowers with heart - shaped leaves. They are not wild flowers, but are cultivated in Hawaii; while some greenhouses grow them here in the United States.

They came in an unusual way. for they were packed with their stems in balloons filled with water.

Anthuriums are not like ordin ary flowers that die within a week or so, but they stay nice for relatively long time.

Colleges Open Fire On Loyalty Oaths

The Spectator ,Page 2 February 27, 1959

"Don’t get married,” urges a glamorous movie star in the February issue of Reader’s Digest.

Rosalind Russell urges young folks to "learn basic seamanship before embarking on the sea of matrimony." Too many who don’t, she tells author Lester David, help pile up teen-age di vorce statistics three and a half times greater than persons in the 26-30 age group.

Young people who wait until their mid-twenties to marry avoid many of the pitfalls of too-young weddings. "Your partner’s ability to do the cha-cha may still be important: but you’ll also value his kindliness and unselfishness — more important attributes in a successful marriage.”

An adorable crew cut may grow out — or — fall out — in time, but plain niceness goes on for a lifetime. And. if you’re a boy, you’ll realize that a sensational face and figure are great in a mate — if they go along with the ability to be a good wife and mother.

Another reason for waiting says Miss Russell, is to avoid inlaw trouble. "You’re a lot more likely to make your own decisions in your mid-twenties than you are as a teenager.” Greater!

Loyalty oaths, required from all students and teachers receiving grants under the National Defense Education Act. were questioned by the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare, and attacked on several fronts.

McPherson College is mem-er of the National Defense Education Act.

Secretary Flemming pointed out that this oath would do little, if any, good, saying that subversives would have no scruples about signing it. The American Association of University Professors, in letters to congressional committees, claimed "it imposes a 'test' oath repugnant to our traditions.”

Many colleges and universities have denounced the oath.

Member of the AAUP at Tow-

son State Teachers College say the oath is discriminatory, in that it singles out scholars as being suspected over others, such as farmers, who received federal aid and do not have to sign such an affidavit.

Last December, the Committee on Relationships of Higher Education to the Federal Government of the American Council on Education voted to support the elimination of this oath from the National Defense Education Act.

Regional Youth

will be at 9:30. The Regional Youth President will also be elected at this time.

“Price Tags for Churchman-ship” will be the topic of Rev. Fike’s talk at 10 a.m. At 11 a.m a Regional Youth Cabinet meeting will be held, followed by a panel discussion at 11:15 and dinner at 12:15.

Forum In Church A question and answer forum led by Rev. Fike will be held at 1:30 in the church. Dick Landrum will be the afternoon’s chairman.

At 3 p.m. a B. V. S. Program will be presented by Peggy Zimmerman. a former B. V. S. er in Europe who will be going on tour of the Western Region right after conference for the benefit of the B. V. S. national publication program.


Highlight of the afternoon will be the ground-breaking of new Sharp Hall at 4 p.m.

The conference banquet will be at 6:30 at the Community Building. Rev. Fike will be the speaker. A singspiration and worship will follow at the chapel at 9:30.

Sunday Morning Irvin Wagner will be the chair-man of the Sunday morning session. Breakfast will be at 8 a.m. Organ meditation will begin in the church sanctuary at 9:30. Rev. Harry K. Zeller, Jr., minister of the local congregation, will deliver the sermon in the last meeting of the conference.

In the early part of the nineteenth century New England was a land of seamen, merchants, farmers and pioneers.

Among these people was Henry Longfellow, the George Washington of this second and bloodless American Revolution, the war of America's cultural independence.

Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine, on Feb. 27, 1807, 102 years ago today.

"Evangeline,” "Hiawatha.” “Paul Reveres Ride." and "The Village Blacksmith' are but a few of the great poet’s works.

In one more month will come April 1, when it is considered proper to play harmless jokes upon one’s friends.

This occasion, known as April Fools’ Day and also All Fools’ Day. and almost universally observed throughout Christendom, can probably be traced back to the old custom in France of paying formal colls on April 1.

According to the Julian calendar, this date was one week after New Year’s Day. When the old calendar was replaced by the Gregorian in 1562 mock calls continued to paid on April 1 as a joke.

If you growl all day. it’s no wonder you’re dog-tired at night.

A little flattery now and then makes husbands out of single men.

Coach Urges Men To. Report


Do you often feel as if you were hemmed in? That your whole being was crying out for expression? Do you feel that you have been overlooked and haven’t had a chance to excel? Have you ever felt that you had the endurance. strength, balance, and co-ordination of an Apollo'

Would you be willing to run in ovals until your lungs burned, your legs felt like rubber, and black spots swarmed before your eyes? Could you sacrifice pie-alamode. soft drinks, late hours, tobacco, whiskey, marihuana, and even a date now and then in order to achieve your goal?

Do you have the character, intestinal fortitude, and maturity to sey "no” to the things that thwart success? Could you toss the keys to the hot rod in the dresser drawer and make use of those little used lower extremities known as legs long enough to develop physical competence in one or more of the 15 events found in Track-and Field?

Do you want to help insure your success in football, basketball. tennis, intramurals, golf, volleyball. hiking or dancing; then by all means report for track.

Macollege Placement Bureau Helps Graduates Find Work

Do you want a job?

Macollege operates a Placement Bureau for former students and graduates. It helps them se- cure positions in their respective fields — whether it is teaching or various industrial businesses.

Dr. Merlin Frantz, associate professor of education and psychology. and Paul Wagoner, alumni secretary, have in each of their offices files concerning the credentials of the students and the job offerings available.

In Dr. Frantz's office, students can find possible teaching positions. whereas business and industrial positions can be found in Wagoner’s office.

Teaching Positions Schools with vacancies and openings available notify the Teacher Placement Bureau and often send representatives to the campus to interview students whose credentials have been sent out. Some of these representatives are superintendents. personnel officials, or assistant superintendents.

Both small, rural, and big school systems have offerings to make to the prospective teacher. Within these schools, all types of teaching combinations are possible. For example — a teacher may teach all academic courses, or he may teach music and gymnastics. depending on the schools.

These jobs are both in elementary and secondary’ schools.

Credentials are valuable to those looking for jobs. They consist of information received from the personal life and background and academic record of the students. Several Macollege seniors arc now enrolled.

Registration blanks are available to any senior, former student. or graduate in the Alumni office. Life time service is avail able to any applicant with a $5.00 fee for enrollment.

An additional $5.00 is due if the

credentials of a person were sent to the place of a secured position.

Business Placement “Business and industrial placement is relatively new on campus." said Paul Wagoner. "It is set up to help seniors, non-teachers. to secure positions.”

Many businesses send representatives to the campus to interview the students, also. In the near future representatives from both the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company and the Woolworth Stores will be here.

Files are kept in the Alumni Office concerning positions in Civil Service, businesses, oil indus try, research departments, and others.    

Since there is less counseling in this program than in the teacher placement, there is no fee.
