Student Composes Music Special For Queen’s Banquet

Harvey Hess, sophomore from at ISTC. Waterloo, Iowa, has composed music for the Queen’s Banquet tonight, including song settings, fanfares, and a recessional to go along with the program.

"I like to write music for special occasions or purposes,” Harvey says.

He has written special incidental music for three 3-act plays given at Iowa State Teachers Col-ege, where he was a student last


He has also written five contatas, six masses, and a one act opera, "The Boat."

Several of his religious hymns have been used at the College Church in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Among some of his compositions which have been presented at the Iowa State Teachers College arc a cycle of love songs, a sonata for flute and piano, and a concerto grosso.

His passion according to St.

John was done by a private group

Just this fall Harvey flew back to Iowa to conduct one of his special compositions, written for the dedication of his home church in Waterloo. The composition was a setting of the 100th Psalm.

Harvey studied music composition at ISTC and used a scholarship granted by ISTC to study music composition in Paris during the summer of 1958.

Harvey still has a copy of a hymn, the first piece of music he composed at the age of 11 or 12 years.

When asked why he decided to come to Macollege he replied "because it is so friendly and also I wanted to take some train ing in theology here. Philosophy and Religion is my major.

Harvey's present plans are to graduate from Macollege. Then he will probably attend Bethany Biblical Seminary in Chicago.

Harvey plays the flute and the recorder.

The judging of the campus decorations will start at 11 a.m. Prize winners will be announced during the football game.

The awards are $30, first prize; $20, second: $10, third; and $5, five honorable mentions. The judging will be based on the appropriateness of the decoration theme, the general appearance and construction, and originality.

Pondering With The President

Devouring Our Young

By Dr. D W. Bittinger

There are a few animals in the total realm of nature who turn upon their own young and devour them, if these young are not separated from them immediately after birth. We look upon these animals as “cold-blooded,” devoid of any elements of love.

In certain parts of the United States now we are closing our schools because we are apprehensive about having children study together if their skin pigmentation differs.

These schools endanger their accreditation in their regional organizations because they are not operating the required number of days. The teachers cannot afford to jeopardize their future in this manner and will likely gravitate to other places for more secure teaching jobs.

The students will fall behind and find their college careers jeopardized later because of this short sightedness, as well as because their schools are not accredited.

Prejudice and hatred are diseases. They gnaw away at the emotional vitals. They are more dangerous than physical malignancies because they destroy, not the body, but the spirit.

Our hope for the future lies in our youth; they are our future. Are we not devouring our future when we damage our youth?

Hail, Queen Eileen Reigns

Cheerleaders Plead For Students To Yell At Games

Welcome Back To Mac

The Spectator staff joins the students and facul ty in extending a hand of welcome to all Macollege alumni returning to Macollege to observe homecoming this week-end.

If the walls of old Sharp Hall could speak, certainly they too would join in a chorus of “Welcome Back to' Mac.” Although we do not know all of the alumni who will be on compus today and tomorrow we have a common bond between us. At one time each of us has worked, played, met joy and sorrow within the walls of our old alma mater.

Chaff Review!

Homecoming History

By Faus, Foley, and Harris Dear Freshmen,

This weekend the general calm routine of college life will be disrupted by the colorful event of homecoming. Yes. this weekend will be such a gala occasion that you may wonder what the background and origin of such a celebration could be.

Therefore, as another public service, Chaff has done voluminous research into the musty files and records in the yellowed pages of last year's phone book to bring you this first complete history of the growth and development of the celebration of the event of homecoming on the McPherson College Campus.

McPherson College had its beginning in the year of 1887. but no homecoming celebration was held that year due to the fact that there was no one to come home. Also, crepe paper had not been invented yet.

Actually, the first homecoming was held in 1888. Now you may

think that there still wouldn't have been any ex-students to come home then, but you underestimate the strictness of t h e Board of Trustees who had expelled half the 1887 student body for such practices as buggy racing. wearing flashy grey coats, neglecting to get the president’s permission to walk with girls, and spooning without being engaged.

The high point of this homecoming celebration occurred when the horse pulling the queen’s buggy ran away, wrecking the visitor’s stands and scattering the other, team like chaff in. one of the biggest upsets of the year.

Then there was the memorable homecoming of 1908 when we play-ly Normal Teacher's College. It was a rough game since the representatives of the Teachers’ College were typically brawny and brainless, but fortunately during the third quarter Haley’s Comet appeared, and these future teachers. having been concentrating on educational theory rather than basic subject matter, were thrown into superstitious panic and fled from the field.

But the main excitement of the roaring twenties occurred in 1928

when McPherson fans first saw the forward pass used. This happened on a wide end sweep when the left end made a pass at the queen. Guy Haze considered this very forward indeed and therefore intercepted the pass with a crushing tackle, which was rather unusual since he was sitting on the bench at the time.

By the time 1938 rolled around we were in the midst of the depression and football was discontinued because of expense. Less expensive sports such as checkers and Rook playing were recommended. Therefore, the largest crowd in history showed up for homecoming in 1938.

Fans are still talking about the big jump of checker champion Feemour Bosdick when he leapt from the third floor window of the girls' dorm to escape a neher catastrophe.

In 1948 an unusual event occurred when we were unable to schedule a homecoming game and had to play an intra-squad scrimmage for the fans. Most experts said this happened because McPherson had a very offensive team in 1948. since soap was still rationed.

This then, is the glorious history of homecoming. If you will notice, the peak events have always occurred on the eighth year of each decade. The last big one was in 1948.

1958 is the big year. Therefore, we predict the coming of T. F. M. S. L. Watch for it.

"Yelling is for the freshmen and high school delinquents” "I don’t like to yell when I'm with a date because I might embarass her!” “Oh! I don’t yell when I go with him because I want him to think I am very feminine”

The above were statements made recently to one of the Macol-lege cheerleaders, when surveying the students to find out why they didn’t yell at the games.

One of the biggest reasons the students didn’t yell was because they didn’t know the yells. Anyone who has attended Macollege for one. two. or three years and doesn’t now the school cheers might be accused of school-spirit delinquency!!!

School spirit or yelling at ball games is not a sign of mental illness or deficiency. It is a healthy normal every-game occurence that happens all over the United States on Friday and Saturday nights.

"Well, what is the use to yell? The players can't hear us out on the field.” So what? The players sitting on the bench can. and it is important to them as they go into the game to know they

have someone or several some-ones rooting for them in the stands.

A perfectly good reason for showing some school spirit is a sportsmanship trophy that is awarded each year to the school showing the must sportsmanship and school spirit during the football and basketball seasons.

The trophy is sponsored by the Kansas Conference Student Association. and is awarded to the school having the most votes from the other schools.

Dear students, the cheerleaders are not out there to hear themselves yell. They do that everyday at practice. They are there to lead you in cheering your winning 1958-1959 Bulldogs on to more victories.

Bulldogs To Challenge K.W.U. In Tomorrow's Grid Classic

Standings Given Of Intramurals

Bulldogs Defeat Presbies In A Tight Defensive Game

The McPherson College Bulldogs will battle the Kansas Wesleyan University Coyotes tomorrow night at the College Stadium beginning at 7:30.

The game with the Coyotes will highlight the weekend’s homecoming events.

Kansas Wesleyan, the defending champions, were victorious in last week’s game, defeating Ottawa 14-7. They have a 2-1 standing entering tomorrow's game.

The Coyotes have four starters from last year’s squad, plus ten other returning lettermen. Each of these four starters received recognition as members of the 1957 all-conference squad.

The Bulldogs fell beneath the defending champs 33-14 last year in a game played at Salina. The Coyotes were strong throughout the game and held a 20-7 halftime margin.

Twelve wins prevail on McPherson’s record with the Coyotes. The Bulldogs have lost 18 games and tied two since the series began in 1921.

Big Time Coaches Are Satirized

The last time McPherson beat the Coyotes was in 1955 when the Bulldogs tied for second place in the conference with the Coyotes.

McPherson enters the game with a 2-1 record, the same as the Coyotes.

Dennis Brubaker Is Chosen For His Offensive Play

For scoring two touchdowns in his first offensive play. Dennis Brubaker, a freshman from Prairie City, Iowa, has been chosen as the Spectator's "Athlete of the Week.”

In his first offensive effort playing against the College of Emporia. Dennis scored two of the three touchdowns made in that game. During all the previous games, he has played an excellent defensive game.

Dennis, a 5'9” — 155 pounder, is a sure tackier, and is invaluable to the team as a good football player. A trait found in Dennis is he never has much to say but always performs well and can be counted on.

Sports Calendar

Games coming up this week include three conference games and two non-conference.

Only one game is to be played today. The rest will Ik* Saturday games.


Bethany at Baker


Kansas Wesleyan at McPher Pherson

Bethel at Friends

Sterling at College of Empor


Missouri Valley, at Ottawa Conference games.

A satire on big-time football coaches written by Gerald Holland in the Oct. 13 issue of Sports Illustrated presents a picture of the coach which will be revealing to fans who are familiar only with the idealized, character-building type of football mentor.

In an introduction to the article. in which Sports Illustrat-ed’s editors invite their readers to meet the coach in this “fictional. b u t factual dialogue that takes some dramatic license — but not very much." the magazine says:

"Saturday’s football spectacles, when all is said and done, are the creation of a single personality: the coach. He is the talent scout, the writer of the script, the director, the producer and the No. 1 beater of the big publicity drum.

"The coach is paid well, works hard, lives high, operates under a code of ethics that enables him to see himself as a public benefactor."

The coach whom Hollard has created" is a lias-been reduced to working in a small football deemphasized college.

Through the device of giving advice to a young, earnest coach who has come to him for inspiration, the coach reveals the modern, businesslike, promotional and workings of successful coaching.

Baker Leads Race;

New Squad Will Appear

A new football squad will soon be seen on the Macollege campus according to S. M. Dell, professor of industrial arts education.

The team consists of eleven miniature seven and one-half inch by 11 1/4 inch bulldogs and are the result of an industrial arts project.

M Club dinner displays, homecomings, and football formation explanations for chapel programs are some of the various ways Professor Dell indicated the new gold lettered dogs may be used

"Ceramic tile work in arts and crafts is another project to begin soon" Professor Dell said.

The project will begin with simple things first following the introduction by observation of Swedish import material held in Lindsborg last week.

Dennis Brubaker, a freshman halfback, tallied twice as the Bulldogs defeated the College of Emporia 19-0 Saturday night.

After a very tight defensive game through out most of the first half, Brubaker dashed 76 yards on a quick opener for the first touchdown. Then in the fourth quarter, Brubaker again scored on a 58-yard pass from Stucky.

The other touchdown was scored by Stucky, a senior quarterback, on a six yard plunge after the Bulldogs grabbed a fumble on the 17-yard-line of C. of E.

The outstanding factor again seemed to be the defensive play of the Bulldogs. The Presbies threatened to score several times on clever plays off of a single wing formation, but the Bulldog’s defense held tight.

Early in the first period of play, the Presbies pushed their way down to the Bulldog’s five yard-line, but a strong goal line defense held them out for four downs to take over the ball. Again in the third quarter the Presbies put on an all out drive, but were stopped when they fumbled and the Bulldogs picked up the ball.

The outstanding ground gainers for the College of Emporia team were Coleman, a speedy halfback, and Rusty Addleman, a 210 pound fullback.

Marriage is a process of finding out what kind of a guy your wife would have preferred.
