The Wesleyan movement in England began when a little group of college boys, of whom John Wesley was a member at 26. Charles Wesley, at 23 and George Whitfield at 20.

In the matter of religion, youth is speaking out in no uncertain terms. Youth is asking for a demonstrable religion, a religion judged less in terms of profession than in terms of action.

To older people, particularly to Christian people, the youth of this generation constitute an unparalleled opportunity.

Thus new tides of thought and interest may be destructive or they may be helpful. Whichever course they take is largely dependent upon the attitude of the older generation.

A little sympathy and understanding will go a long way toward enabling the youth of this generation to give of themselves in Christian loyalty to the task of making this world a better place in which to live.

Pondering With The President

Welcome Regional Youth

By Dr. D. W. Bittinger

It is good to have several hundred of you on the campus this week-end.

While here we suggest you:

Make a host of friends.

Have a good time.

Look over a good college; meet the students     and professors.

Play some, pray some, deepen your spiritual life.

Help us break ground for a wonderful new building.

Make some good resolutions about going to     college.

Make a dedication of your life which will determine the direction of your entire future.

God bless you and give you a great weekend.

Younger People Make Historical Happenings

The following comments concerning the younger generation were taken from a recent church bulletin.

It is a striking thing to go back through history and discover how many of the great movements in the history of the world have been, strictly speaking, youth movements.

This is particularly true in the field of religion. The movement that Christ started, after all, was a youth movement. He entered His ministry when He was 30. He finished it when He was 33.

It is worth while knowing that He was crucified not by the youth of Jerusalem, but by the elder statesmen of the church — the Scribes and Pharisees.

Along in the middle ages when the religion of Christ was cluttered by the great mass of orthodox debris, the Protestant reformation came along. To lead that reformation, there was another younger generation.

Martin Luther started the reformation at 31. John Calvin join ed it at 20 and wrote his greatest book about it' at 23.

Ed. at Iowa State summer school.

In 1954 Rev. Fike assumed the pastoral work at the Church of the Brethren in Meyersdale, Pa. After three years of service there, he accepted the call to the Chicago church.

Connell’s Corner

The family telephone, an instrument used by all ages, was first used on -March 10, 1876 by its inventor, Alexander Graham Bell.

Bell spoke into his invention with the following words: “Mr. Watson, come here, I want you.”

The first telephone switchboard for commercial service was placed in operation at New Haven, Conn., with 21 subscribers in 1878.


Do you complain because it now costs you four cents to mail a first class letter instead of three as had in the past prior to last August?

Until July 1, 1847, the rate of postage on a first class letter under one ounce and composed of a single page and mailed less than 30 miles cost 6c.

Legislation was enacted on March 3, 1847, authorizing the postmaster general to issue stamps. They were first placed on sale in New York City on July 1, 1847.

Pardon, A Mistake

The name of Gary Stelting was accidentally omitted last week from the list of the team captains for the Call Program sponsored by the MCA.

Singing Quakers Give Sacred Music Concert

The Singing Quakers symphonic choir. Friends University, Wichita, will present a concert Sunday, March 8 at 3 p.m. in the college church.

The choir will present several groups of sacred A Cappella music. a short oratorio. Miriam's Song of Triumph by Schubert, and a group of familiar hymns and spirituals.

The choir will be directed by Fred Mayer.

Students, faculty, and public are invited to attend. A free-will offering will be taken.

Mac Bulldogs Clinch Second Berth In KCAC

Crowned Heads Reign At Event

Diane Browning and Ivan Pro-chaska were crowned Queen and King of the 1959 M-Club Canival last Friday night at the peak of activities. Jerry McPherson, president of the M-Club, presented the King and Queen, and gave each a gift from the M-Club.

Queen Diane then drew the ticket for the diamond ring. Dennis Dirksen matched his ticket with the one drawn and was presented the $100 dollar diamond ring. Dirksen can have the ring in while gold, and the donator will fit the ring free of charge.

Other activities attracted many people. Al Guiot won the pieeating contest and Larry Sams exhibited his pitching abilities. Ralph Rindt was presented a dollar for winning the free-throw contest. He hit 19 in-a-row.

The M-Club took in approximately $135 from the Carnival. The money is used to pay for a • $1800 washer and dryer, which must be paid for in three years, and for various other activities.

Girls’ Varsity Finishes Season On 6-2 Record

McPherson Girls’ Varsity Basketball team finished their season at Central Feb. 28. McPherson won 51-31. When McPherson played Central before McPherson won 60-32.

JoAnn Kerr was high for McPherson with 16 points. Sharon Schrock had 12, Sandy Schrock 9, Marlene Klotz had 10 and Delores Lehman had 4.

This game closed the season with 6 wins and 2 losses. McPherson won twice over Central, Sterling and Tabor and lost two times to Bethel.

Les Says - - -

Last week's game with Friends University brought to a close the '58-'59 basketball season for the Macollege Bulldogs. But the close of the basketball season is a far cry from the end of intercollegiate athletics for the year.

Too many students are unaware of the effort top-notch Macollege athletes put forth to represent their college in spring sports. Macollege participates in many spring sports such as track, tennis. and golf.

Take a walk out to the north end of the campus some afternoon and observe your classmates working to get themselves in shape for the stiff competition which they will be facing in the conference in spring sports.

Better yet. fellas. Coach Smith says that they still have enough track suits for more participants so if you have enough time to walk over and observe, walk in and take part and get yourself in shape.

School Support

It is the opinion of this writer that the spring sports of this school do not get the support and backing which they should get from the student body. The boys are working hard for the school, so the school should be behind them 100 per cent and show it.

When the golf team comes home victorious from a match they deserve words of praise from the whole student body. If they are not successful, encouraging and backing from their fellow students will help spur them on to another win.

The same thing holds true for any of the springs sports. You have seen how a strong cheering section helps the boys in a basketball gome or football game and it will help give a boy an extra burst of speed at the finish line.

No matter which spring sport it happens to be. let us as a student body get out and cheer the boys every chance we have. The cheers and support of the student body will help the boys give Mac a victorious spring season.

Inasmuch as multitudes have bored you with long, hollow welcome speeches, let CHAFF be the first to wish you a safe and speedy trip home.

Since we ourselves come from a humble background, we know what confusion you must feel upon being thrust into this teeming multitude, this boiling melting pot of inhumanity.

Key Spots

In order to set you straight, CHAFF has listed a few key spots on campus that you must visit before leaving.

1.    Get a liberal education, learn some of the finer arts, discover techniques for successful living, visit Dotzour Hall at closing time.

2.    If you need a place to take your date after the evening programs. CHAFF recommends the museum on fourth floor Harnly Hall. It has several giant skeletons guaranteed to frighten your girl.

3.    The Pit. which is located northeast of Harnly Hall. This is where all freshmen who flunk first semester English are taken out, shot, and cremated.

4.    No one should miss the nerve center of the campus, Chaff's headquarters in room 410 Dot-zour. Special hours for this week only are 12 midnight to 4 a.m.

For your enlightenment, a book display has been set up in 410. featuring such recent best sellers as: "How to Cut Corners on Your Tithing," by R. Gordon Yoder: "Ten Reliable Ways to Wreck a Local Youth Group," by Ken Holderread: “How to Expand Your Local Church Through Use

of the Church Loyalty Oath,” by the General Brotherhood Board.

Chaff Supplements The Regional Executive Committee, which dictated the religious experiences of the region, has said that the conference program should offer something of interest for everyone so that all may participate and gain something of value.

Therefore, CHAFF, as a public service, has done voluminous research and has scheduled some special events to supplement the weaker spots on the conference program.

Like, for instance, this afternoon. they are having a speech contest on the topic "Dare to Be Different.” Now those of you who really dare to be different should come with us down to the park where we will have a gala grasshopper fry. Afterwards, Rabbi Schnitzel will speak on the topic, "How to Stand Out as a Heretic in Your Local Church.”

Now tonight they're having a band concert down at the community building. For those of you who are tone deaf, (and that includes half the band) we are planning a stomp next door, featuring Chauncy Hippner and his Pink Mountain Playboys, playing earthy music.


Saturday morning they are having a business session. You might as well attend it. After your activities of Friday night, you'll

need the extra sleep.

Saturday afternoon, the trustees are holding a ground breaking ceremony for the new Sharp Hall. Of far greater importance for the future of the college, however, is the ground breaking for the Chaff Tunnel, to connect the church basement to Dotzour Hall, and to provide 24 hour access to the church basement.

This groundbreaking will be held in the church basement at 4 p.m. You don’t even have to dress up to attend this ceremony. Just bring picks and shovels.

And in closing, we wish that when you leave you at least can say with truth and integrety, "I attended one meeting."
