No. 8

Production Will Be Staged In SUR On Nov. 22, 24, 25

Final dales for the Macollege production. “See How They Run,” have been set. The dales will be Nov. 22, 24, and 25.

The play will be presented in the Student Union Room, using horseshoe staging. Horseshoe staging is similar to arena theatre only' the audience will sit on only three sides.

The advantages of this type of staging arc as follows:

1.    There is a sense of intimacy between the actors and audience.

2.    Gestures and facial expressions can be more subtle.

3.    Audience actually feels as if it is in the room with the actors. It tends to interest them more.

4.    The play becomes more realistic.

5.    The actors and furniture does not have to be all facing the front.

6.    The make-up is more subtle.

This type of staging was started

with the Greeks. It has lately been revived and is now popular in Europe and the United States, with permanent theatres in Paris and the University of Washington.

Two hundred Macollege students and town-people will be seated each night of the performance. Students will be admitted by their activity tickets. However, they must be validated for the night they wish to come.

Teams Will Represent Mac At Novice Debate

The Novice Debate Tournament will be held at Kansas State College in Manhattan Nov. 8. This tournament is for college debaters who have had no experience in debate. There will be four rounds of debate.

Two teams will be going from McPherson College. These teams are Mary Ann Guthals and Chester Peckover as one team, and Faye Fields and Don Hollenbeck as the second team. Other debaters may go. but they can not participate.

The Doghouse was started approximately twelve years ago by the Student Council with the cooperation of the McPherson College faculty.

The purpose of the Doghouse was to provide a place for students and faculty to meet their friends and also a place for fellowship and snacking together. Later, Sunday night lunches were served.

The room decided upon was a room in the basement near the SUR. This room was used for conferences and sometimes it was used for classes. It is still the same room with many improvements.

When the Doghouse was first started there were no booths, refrigerator, or pop machines, like there are now. The booths were furnished by Harry Frantz, Class of '34, and installed by Prof. S. M. Dell. The present booths were made by professor Dell and his woodworking classes, and the material was donated by Harry Frantz.

The Doghouse got its name because the mascot of the school is a Bulldog and the doghouse is where he lives, so the name is very appropriate for McPherson College.

The Doghouse is operated through the Student Council by a student manager and his help. The student manager is picked  by the Student Council. The em-

plovees and the student manager are paid for working in the Doghouse. Every year except one the finances for the Doghouse have been "in the black."

There is also a Doghouse Committee consisting of Dr. Bittinger, Dean Giesert, treasurer of Student Council and the student manager. which is the chairman of the council.

Officers of the Ag Club are Terry Weddle, president. Doyle Rover, vice president, and Melvin Roberts, secretary-treasurer.

Doghouse manager this year is Dick Rienke. Those employed in the Dog House are Eileen Olt-man, JoNelle Thoreen, Betty Oltman, Larry Sanders, and Diane Browning.

Pondering With The President

Have You Ever Been Lost?

By Dr. D.

One has a panicky feeling when he is lost, especially if he cannot read the street signs, or ask questions in the language of the country. This happened to us several times this summer in Europe.

But a worst "lostness" is when one has a sense of being all alone in the midst of a crowd of his own fellows. One does not know how to escape from this kind of lostness. It is hard to read the signs, or speak the language which liberates from this lost ness.

There ore some students on every campus, including McPherson campus, who have this sense

W. Bittinger

of being lost. They are surrounded by several hundred young people of their own ages. But they do not feel that they belong: that they really know anyone; that they have any heart-to-heart friends.

You can read the loneliness in the eyes of this '‘lost” boy or girl.

Perhaps all of us are thoughtless at this point. We may not be conscious of these people; consequently. are not seeking to help anyone who has this sense of lostness to find any street signs which will help him into friendship.

Can you be helpful at this point?

Disrespect For Dormitories Tends To Show Immaturity

College society is very interesting. It consists of many different people and ideas and situations. Sometimes these ideas of people conflict with each other and hinder their getting along with each other.

Members of the college family must get along just as members of any family. It is evident that disrespect for a house can cause much trouble in a family and much unhappiness.

In the same way disrespect for a home can cause trouble, disrespect for the dormitory can cause trouble in the- college family. All of us want to get along and be a peaceful family.

However, those who write on-the walls and leave trash and bottles in the halls must be ex ceptions. It takes little effort to sweep up dirt into a pan and dump it in a can.

But. more often than not. dirt is swept from the rooms into the broom closet and left on the floor. Apple fights arc fun but why leave the cores on the hall floor?

Young people must have a little fun and horsplay but when

they leave the evidence for the janitor to clean up it shows their immaturity and their unwillingness to conform to the normal.

Let's all grow up a little and show the respect for our dorm homes that they deserve. In this way we can make the dorms better places to live during our years in college. — a student.

As the March of Dimes moves forward Toward Greater Victories, its first new targets are two of the greatest cripplers of all— arthritis and birth defects (congenital malforma-ions).

The average man is proof that the average woman can take a joke.

“Wha Happened?”

Critical Commentary Given On Higher Education By Prof

Dr. George Williams in his new and critical commentary on higher education in America. "Some Of My Best Friends Are Professors”, warns that there is only one way to be a good professor, but there are a least seven ways to bo a very bad one.

These suggestions should be weighed perhaps by the students who have just completed their first week of practice teaching.

The first bad professor is the stupid professor. He is a rule-follower. because rule-following simplifies life for him.

The second professor, the smug professor, is the one who is convinced that he is most clever and most knowing and has proved to himself that he is a pretty smart fellow. He must be a pretty smart fellow after all to have gotten where he is.

Less common is the third type, the arrogant one. He is never arrogant to those above, but always arrogant to his students.

as well as to faculty members who are his inferiors.

He is rude and has forgotten what Emerson knew — that the secret of education lies in respecting the pupil.

The fourth type of bad professor is the one who just does not care about people. He likes science and scholarship, books and libraries. He enjoys talking about what he knows, but he has no understanding of the points of view of his students.

Dr. Williams describes several other types of “bad” professors. The final type of bad professor whom Dr. Williams excoriates teaches in a supremely businesslike way. To this professor the students are so many items to be processed, so many completed jobs to be turned out according to schedule.

If Dr. Williams is severe on some of the professorial types in his book, he reminds us all, in his title, that "Some Of My Best Friends Are Professors."

Chaff Goes To Chapel . .

Sweet Slumber

By Fans, Foley, and Harris

An important hole in the road of education is sleeping through chapel. It happens this way; it is Friday, a day like any other day. a chapel session like any other chapel session, except YOU ARE THERE.

The organ has finally been drowned out by the murmur of conversation, the curtains open, revealing a quaint little man with a grey mustache, peering over the top of the rostrum.

He clears his throat, waves a ream of paper, and says, "Will you please give your attention to a few important announcements, They are as follow;

"There will be an important meeting of the SNEA, The Slightly Neurotic Educators of America, immediately following chapel in the business office, to find out what happened to last years' dues.

"Mr. and Mrs. Rollo Tubb announce the engagement of their daughter, Ima Tubb to Mr. Doug Graves, son of Mr. and Mrs. Phil Graves.

"Next Monday night the Student Ministers' Group will meet in the Community Building Auditorium to hear Dr. Evan Jellik speak on "Why Ministers Shouldn't Marry Barmaids.” Professor Dale Brown will introduce the speaker and wake the audience when it is time to go home.

“Mr. and Mrs. Ply Wood of Greenwood. Minn., announce the engagement of their daughter. Shirley Wood, to Mr. Rex Carrs, son of Mr. and Mrs. Rod Carrs of Wheeling, West. Va. Rex is at present a sophomore at McPherson College majoring in automechanics and first aid.

“All girls wishing to have dates this weekend please meet at midnight tonight in room 410 Dotzour.

“ALL boys desiring dates this weekend write your name on a $10 bill, address it to CHAFF, and put it in the Spectator mailbox.

"Mr. and Mrs. Otto Horn announce that their daughter, Ooga Horn, is interested in becoming engaged. All boys who are interested please meet at the back of chapel after chapel today.

“The Faculty Social Committee wishes to announce that since Lotta Drive and Earnest Ree Sis-tence have had three dates in a row. they are now going steady until further notice. This decision upholds an earlier pronouncement of the Dotzour Dorm Council.

The members of the Student Court are asked to meet at 9:30 this evening for an investigation of loom 410. Dotzour.”

“The following people have been chosen to be co-captains of the intramural hula-hooping teams. Will they please meet after chapel in the broom closet under the chapel. Ruth Less and Will Cheat. Sally Forth and Harry Armpitt, Rannie Hertz and Russel Kattle, Marion Kind and Nat Available, Wanda Flirt and Thurston Long."

“The coming of T. F. M. S. L. is rapidly drawing near. Be sure you are prepared for it. Remember. T.F.M.S.L. spelled backwards is L.S.M.F.T."

So what was chapel like today? It was a chapel like any other chapel, filled with those events which warp and deteriorate our minds, and YOU WERE THERE.

B-Squad Boasts A Record Of 3-1

'Training for the future," arc the words used by George Keim, assistant coach, to describe the Macollege B-football squad.

The team consists mostly of freshmen and also sophomores and juniors who do not play in the varsity games.

"Principally, the B-squad is used as a means of training players for the A team and is designed to observe the boys under pressure." Mr. Keim stated.

Four games have been played to date with a total of three wins and one loss. McPherson capped two over Wesleyan. The loss was a yield to Sterling which, however, was sucessfully atoned last Monday with a 14-6 win.

tin was the only woman who took them.

Miss Martin took lessons at the McPherson Airport. Her instructor was a postman when not instructing flying lessons. She received her license in 1956.

Miss Martin says that she would rather fly than do almost anything else. Landing is her greatest pleasure. It took longer to learn how to land, and it gives her a lot of satisfaction when she lands her plane.

Miss Martin flies for pleasure ns well as business.

She works in Canton where she lives. She drives to school each morning. She is enrolled as a freshman this year.

Students Show Interest In Technique On Meal Planning

Five Macollege girls are enrolled in beginning foods class this semester. They are Ellen Strycker, Karen Yoder, Veneta Howell, Elizabeth Pittman, and Roberta Varner. Miss Mildred Siek, head of the home economics department is their instructor.

In studying foods, the technique is on meal planning. The girls and their instructor decide on the over all goals of planning a meal.

An outline is set up to determine what they have to study, the plans to be made, the problems that present themselves, and then attaining these objectives.

There arc basic objectives in foods and preparing of food. Some of the more important objectives are using the food dollar wisely or purchasing food wisely. Preparing nutrious, palatable, and attractive meals is another one of the objectives to attain.

The study of the principles of food preparation to conserve nutrients is an important objective. The students consider proper table etiquette and proper forms of serving food as objectives to attain.

The management of time is important. The students study how to manage the time to conserve energy and at the same time accomplish the task in a given time.

The students objective is to develop an appreciation for all foods. Also, they develop an ap-preciation for food preparation. It is an expression of them. They develop a creative sense in the preparation and service of food.

This semester, the students in foods class will serve family style dinners. These dinners will not necessarily be served family style, but they will be very informal.
