Si! Si! To Mexico City For Summer History Class

Mexico City will be the site for about two weeks of study which the summer session of Mexican History will be doing this summer. The class will be directed by Dr. Raymond L. Flo-ry, professor of history and political science.

The class will run the regular three weeks session from July 27 to Aug. 14. No one will be permitted to participate with the group who does not enroll in the course.

First Week On Campus

The first week of the course will be spent on the campus during which time the class will meet in regular sessions and do outside reading as well as having sessions discussing what will be needed on the trip to Mexico and ironing out such things as physical examinations prior to the time of departure.

The last two weeks of the course will, be spent largely in and about Mexico City. Time will be spent in studying not only prehistoric remains in Mexico but also the contempory political and social picture.

One section of the course will deal with the American foreign services abroad. In dealing with this subject the class will visit the American embassy in Mexico City and probably get some briefing sessions from some of the people in the embassy.

Cost Not Definite

The cost of the trip is not yet definite but the probable automobile transportation will cost something like $60 per person for the trip. The lodging will probably run close to $35 or $40. Items

such as food and entertainment will be taken care of by the student himself.

Unlike most summer courses enrollment in the Mexican History course cannot be accepted at the last minute. This is obvious since advance reservations for lodging and advance prepara tion for automobile travel will have to be made.

Enroll By June 1

Consequently, people arc expected to enroll in the course by June 1. Students who arc now on campus and are planning on taking the course arc expected to enroll before leaving the campus to go home for the summer.

The $45 tuition fee is to be paid at the business ofice by-June 1 and in case a person later changes his mind and decides not to take the course, it is possible that the $45 deposit might have to be transferred to the automobile in which that person were to ride to defray expenses which normally would have been his.

The Mexican History course is one of limited enrollment and in case there are too many enrol-lees, the list will have to be chopped starting with the latecomers in terms of their inquiries and interest in the course. Any one who is not enrolled by June 1 will be turned down.

Upper, Lower Level

The Mexican History course is open to both upper and lower level students. Any student who is interested may contact Dr. Flory with any questions concern ing the course.

Pondering With The President. . .

Mississippi Provides Lesson For All Men

By Dr. D. W. Bittinger


I heard only recently that along the lower Mississippi, when it becomes evident that the river will overflow its banks and fill the basements of houses with muddy river water, the people who live in the houses fill their basements with clean water before they flee. This clean water keeps the muddy water out        

When the river has gone back within its banks the home owners return, pump out the clean water and find their basements unfilled with soggy mud.

When I heard of this interesting principle it occurred to me that this has value for the human mind and spirit. It also has value for behavior and conduct.

One of the best ways to keep the mind and spirit clean is to have them always busy and progressive. One of the best ways to keep daily conduct from going wrong is to be very occupied with doing right.

This lesson from the lower Mississippi is worthy of meditation and action.

Keep Up With The Joneses! Ruin Car In 10 Easy Ways job as long as possible. Experts suggest rotation every 5,000 miles, but delay will insure maximum wear and make it possible for you to buy new ones, 2,000 to 10,000 miles earlier, and new tires | aren’t expensive; they just feel that way.

2.    If your brakes are low. keep them that way. Brake fluid is just a needless expense. Think of all the money you can save by warping or scratching the broke drum.

3.    Always keep the headlights, radio, and inside lights on at the same time, especially with the ignition turned off. You’ll keep battery manufacturers in business.

4.    Oil doesn’t need changing every 1,000 miles; that’s just pro paganda. Wait for at least 2,500

or more. Then you can have your valve and ring job at the same time your oil is changed. It will save you a trip to the garage.

5.    Forget about tune-ups too. There’s no sense in looking for trouble while the car is running

Connell Returns To Corner

The editor returns to his desk with this issue after a visit from Fields. I feel that you can look forward to many more good issues next fall. Fields and her staff did a good job.

After a four week vacation from work on the SPEC and a partial vacation from studies, one finds it difficult to get back in the routine.

I feel that a vacation does everyone some good. I feel so much better from mine that I am ready to enjoy another as soon as someone will give me a chance.

Much activity is booming around campus this week with construction beginning on new Mohler Hall and Brown Auditorium, work on the resurfacing of a couple of parking lots, and the general maintenance of keeping the campus in good shape.

Things have quieted down considerably since the political campaigns and election runoffs have been held. Congratulations are given to the new Missourian Student Council President (not Truman) and the other new officeholders.

The appearance of the bloodmobile on campus Monday should give all the opportunity to help save a life. Even though you can not give a pint of blood, you may help in many other ways.

The editor gave -a pint last year and would do so again only they haven’t been able to classify his first pint yet.

The beautiful Kansas weather has much to brag about. For instance I awoke Sunday morning to a beautiful covering of snow on the ground. By mid-afternoon the snow had disappeared and spring had reappeared. "

Czaplinskys Sponsored By Married Couples Class

The general contractor moved in Monday on the McPherson College campus to start construction work on the new Sharp Hall, the administration building of the college.

The new building will include an auditorium as well as classrooms besides the administrative department.

The general contract has been awarded to Hahner - Foreman-Cale, Inc., of Great Bend, the same contractor for the new telephone building in McPherson.

The general contract was for $512,000 and was written with a 90-day postponement clause on two items so the college might determine if additional funds will be available.

The heating and plumbing contract went to Kirkpatrick Heat ing and Plumbing Company. Newton. at $134,000, and The Dyson Electric Company. Hutchinson, won the electrical contract at $58,000.

The three contracts for the large and modernistic building amount to a total of $702,000.

Monday the general contractor started moving in equipment set posts for a fence around the building area and blocked off the circle drive in front of the old Sharp Hall.

The new building will be erect

Now, in America, this family has built up their lives and home. They have purchased a home at 412 W. Seitz in McPherson, and have remodeled it.

Vladimir is working at the McPherson Concrete Products Company. Plus this, he is an excellent gardener.

Vladimir. Vera, and their children are Russian Orthodox, but they have been attending the McPherson Church of the Brethren since they arrived.

Since they have come to the United States, they have been blessed with an American Citi-en, Helen, their daughter, was bom on July 29, 1955.

English Language The English language has been somewhat of a handicap to the Czaplinskys, However Mr. Cza-poinsky is now studying English’ under Mrs. Homer Brunk, professor of English at Macollege.

His vocabulary is not big now and it is hard for him to catch the words. However. Mr. Czaplinsky says. "I am very thankful to Mrs. Brunk, for she gave me the key to pronunciation — Web ster’s New Collegiate Dictionary Now I am able just to use any book and any newspaper, and I am able to read and understand and pronounce the words.”

Mr. Czaplinsky began to learn different poems two or three years ago through a book of verse given to Helen, his daugh ter. He says, "The music of poems concretes in the memory the form and sentence of the new words and the sentence building."

Immediately after their arrival in McPherson, Vladimir made this comment: "We can sleep at

Bulldogs Tame Tabor Thinclads

The Bulldogs from McPherson were victorious over the Tabor College track crew Tuesday. 8249. The meet was a dual contest held on the McPherson College Athletic Field.

The next meet for the thin-clads will be a triangular meet at Newton with Bethel and Bethany College next Tuesday. On Thursday, they will compete in a quadrangular meet at Sterling with Kansas Wesleyan, Sterling, and Bethany.

The Bethel College net team will be at Mac this afternoon for a meet with the McPherson tennis team. Monday the Sterling College team will come to the Mac courts for a tennis match with the Bulldogs.

night without fear. Here I have no fear of someone coming in the night and taking my wife, my boys or myself."

It was and is a new life for all of them but they are looking to the future with a great deal of enthusiasm and hope.

In June of 1951, Vladimir Cza-plinsky, his wife, Vera, and their sons. George and Eugene, ages six and seven and one-half, came to the United States as a displaced persons family.

This Ukranian family was brought to America by the Church World Service organization. They came to McPherson under the auspices of the Friendly Forum class, a young married couples class of the Church of the Brethren.


The Czaplinskys came originally from the Ukraine in Southern Russia, where he operated an extensive grain and horse farm, but during the war, his land was overrun by the Nazis and he was taken prisoner. All he had, which he described in his broken English as "much money and property." was taken from him and he was placed in a forced labor camp in Germany.

Escaped To Poland

When Communism invaded the Ukraine. Vladimir and his family escaped, to Poland by covered wagon. Later, when the Com munists took Poland, they moved on to Germany. Many of their relatives were left in Russia, and they have not been able to communicate with them.

Mrs. Czaplinsky was the daughter of a Kulak — the prosperous Russian farmers whom Stalin hit hardest when agriculture was tak en over by the state. Her family lost its farm in the south of the Ukraine in 1928, when she was eight.

Her family drifted across the land to where they settled with a brother. Vera went through Communist-run schools, got her degree in animal husbandry, and won a medal for marksmanship along the way.

Mac Men Swamp Sweden In Dual Meet

The McPherson College trackmen won a dual meet last Friday with the Bethany College Swedes 93-38. The Bulldogs took ten firsts to only 5 by the Swedes.

Wheeler of Bethany won both short dashes; 100 — 10.0 and 220 - 23.1. Elliott of McPherson won the 440 yd. dash in 52.2; Frazier, the 880 in 2:06.5; Ragland, the low hurdles in 13.5 and the broad jump. 22' 7 1/2”; Rolfs, the high hurdles in 10.5.

Huffman, the pole vault, 12' 8 3/4"; Heidebrecht, high jump — 5’ 10”: Wesselowski, shot put — 39’ 8 1/2”; Lewis, javelin — 165’ 7 1/2; and the 440 yard relay team from McPherson all won their events, the relay time — 3:32.

Les Says ...

There is a lot more to playing the role of an athlete than participating in 'sports. An athlete has a great moral obligation to fulfill because of the influence he has over the lives of the people who admire and respect him, especially younger people.

From the time sporting events began the athlete has been looked up to with respect and has won the admiration of many youngsters who wish to pattern their lives after him. He will be held in this position as long as there are sporting events on earth.

A person would be almost surprised sometimes at the things that a little boy would do to be like his hero. If a star college athlete lived on the block and claimed that milk made him strong, every little boy on the block would drink milk whether he liked it nor not.

On the other hand, if the star athlete thought it was smart to smoke, his fan club would be sneaking out in the alley to try their hand at smoking. That is the way it is and there is nothing we can do about it except live the kind of life that we would be proud to have copied.

The real trouble with many athletes today is that they accept only part of the responsibility of playing the role of athlete and forget the part that goes necessarily along with the name, the part of influencing the lives of young people.

An athlete will influence some lives one way or another and he can't get away from it. His responsibility comes in deciding in which way he wants to influence the young people who look up to him with admiration and respect.

Bulldogs Bow To Swedes

Macollege tennis boys bowed to the Swedes of Bethany College Monday night in a 7 to 0 defeat. The Swedes have a pile of victories to their credit this year and have been defeated only once by Southwestern.

Preparations For New Sharp Start On Macollege Campus

Macollege Junior Recalls Heifer Donations In Europe

Blood Donors

(Continued from Page One)

Kelly Day. Macollege junior, brings to campus a background of service in Austria and Germany as he distributed heifers in Europe for almost two years. The call of service and the lure of adventure led Kelly of War-rensburg, Mo., Church of the Brethren to enter Brethren Volunteer Service in September, 1956.    

Normal Control Patient After a two month training period at the Brethren Service Center. New Windsor, Md., Day volunteered as a Normal Control patient at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.

As a Normal Control, he had activated soap injected into his blood to "test the action of radioactivity on the heart.

Later that fall Kelly was sent to Europe on a Greek ship with 19 head of cattle. After visiting a BVS team in northern Greece he was sent to Germany for a brief orientation at the Brethren House in Kassel.

Work In Austria By June. 1957. Day was devoting his time to the Heifer Project, Inc., in Linz. Austria. Day reports that from 1954 to 1958, 313 heifers had been distributed among 333 families in Austria. Six hundred seven small children were receiving milk from these animals.

The combined worth of the progeny of bulls given to the Federal Artificial Insemination Center at Wels, Upper Austria, since 1948, is estimated at over $2,000.000.

Day experienced the generous hospitality of the Austrian people when the Upper Austrian Chamber held a dinner in his honor before he left Austria.

He was interviewed by radio and press and was privileged to have a conference with state and federal men.

Impressed By Culture Day was deeply impressed by the character and culture of the European people, the rapid recovery they have made since the war, both economically and spiritually, and their apprecia-

tion of beauty.

"As many Americans I had the misconception that all of Europe would be war tom and filled with starving people,” he comments.

He feels that the real worth of the BVS program in Europe is not the tangible aspects of material aid. but the intangible values of peace, IF peace con be considered intangible.

The visitation program and other person to person encounters help bring into focus the values of other cultures and erase mutual distortions between cultures.

Day is majoring in Rural Life. Using his education he hopes to return to Europe to be of further service.

Gets In Blood

"Once you’ve been in Europe, it gets in your blood!” he comments. "The snow capped Alps, the blue Danube winding among the budding fruit trees on a spring morning, the Austrian peasants. dressed in their native costumes and mowing their fields with scythes are sights you never forget!"

Mac Seniors Accept Teaching Positions

Three more Macollege seniors have accepted teaching positions for the next year.

Eugene Johnson Courtland, will teach secondary commerce and coach at Esbon.

Evan Johnson. Inman, will teach secondary mathematics and science at Walton.

Mrs. Gene Wenger. McPherson, will teach fourth grade at River Grove, Illinois.


Milk is being furnished by a local dairy, and cakes are being donated by college hill residents.

The Home Economics Club is preparing the meal and serving it. Arlene Rolfs is the student chairman of the meal.

Solicited Donors Fifteen donors are coming from Central College. Town people are also coming to the campus to donate blood. Players’ Club sponsored a solicitation of residents of College Hill.

Six nurses will come with the bloodmobile from Wichita. Five local volunteer registered nurses and one doctor will also be present.

The local Red Cross is supplying nurses aides, clerks, typists. Student hostesses will greet each donor.

The blood which is donated will be packed in ice and taken to the Wichita Red Cross Center. It may be used as whole blood, or after 21 days, it is used, for derivatives of blood. No blood is wasted.

Each person’s blood is kept separately so the Red Cross can type it. Each person will receive a notice of his blood type and RH factor.

Three-Gallon Donor Because the college bloodmobile visit came after her 60th birthday and donors over 60 are not accepted, one McPherson woman drove to Lyons two weeks ago to give her 24th pint to make her a three-gallon donor.

Some faculty members have donated blood every year that the bloodmobile has been on the campus.    

Cards for student volunteers below 21 were mailed to the parents last week.


Conceitedness Is Pitfall Of Unwary Christians

by Watson

A common pitfall among Christians is for them to be proud of their Christianity. Some people ore even proud of their lack of Christianity.

Now. pride is a fine thing, as long as it is not in excess. Then it becomes CONCEIT.

Conceit And Sin

Conceit is a sin which is all too prevalent in the world. It is a sin which was present long before Christ, and will probably be present long after our generation.

The greatest problem about conceit is that it can be acquired without our realizing it.

Conceit will slip up upon a Christian in such a subtle way that many conceited people consider Themselves Christian.

The easiest way for us to recognize conceit is to make an examination of ourselves, deciding of which qualities or virtues we are especially boastful.

Many Forms

Conceit can occur in many forms. We can be conceited about our money, clothes, car, friends, grades, or our lack of any of these.

When it is only in oder to be “different”, conceit can be closely connected with "non-conformity”.

Many people have the audacity to be conceited in their own con


It is also conceited for us to pick our friends in such a way that we can be “name-droppers”.
