A game refuge for the McPherson College farm pond and the immediate surrounding area is being planned according to John Colyn, graduate 1950, and teacher of physical education and general science at the McPherson intermediate school.
Mr. Colyn indicated that he was presently engaged in making "Game Refuge” signs for the area.
On Nov. 1, the eighth grade conservation class cleaned the irrigation ditch in preparation for filling the pond.
About three years ago the pond was seined and restocked. About 1.000 pounds of rough fish were removed.
After seining, the fish and game workers from Pratt poisoned the pond and then restocked it with channel cot, bass and blue gill.
"A tree planning project that could make the site nice for camping, usable for class studies by the college, and other possibilities is under consideration, ” Mr. Colyn said. The game refuge, an idea receiving much enthusiasm from eighth grade conservation class, has been discussed and agreed too by Dr. Desmond Bittinger, president of McPherson College and John Ward, director of rural life and manager of the college farm.
“I was born and raised on the farm and have always had an interest in hunting and fishing which accounts for my interest in game preservation,” Mr. Colyn said.
Mr. Colyn mentioned that he had approached the city school administration about starting a class in conservation and now teaches one entitled "Natural Science and Conservation.”
Closely affiliated with college, but not an actual part of it is the Western Regional headquarters, located in the basement of Sharp Hall.
In the office are Floyd Bantz, executive officer of the Western Region; Mrs. Gordon Yoder, administrative secretary to Bantz: and Kenneth Holderread, Western Region Youth Director.
The Church of the Brethren in North America has been divided into five geographical areas that form five functional organizations known as Regions.
The Western Region extends from the Canadian border to the Gulf of Mexico and from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains.
The executive body for the region is the Western Region Board
made up of one member from each district in the region. There are 14 of these districts in this region. General Brotherhood Board members residing in the region and the college president also are on the Western Region Board.
Five members arc elected from this board to the Executive Committee of the Western Region. The chairman of this committee is Warren Hoover of Preston, Minn.
Other members arc Leland Wilson, Overland Park, Kas.; Charles Dumond, Jr., Hutchinson, Kas.; Kent Naylor, Warrensburg, Mo.; and John Ditmars, Holms-ville, Nebr.
Floyd Bantz is employed by the Western Region, through its committees, to promote and give guidance to the total church; to give impetus to church extension
and conservation: aid in pastoral recruitment, training, and placement; and to be to the region what a pastor is to a church, a district officer to a district, or a general executive to the whole denomination.
His relation to McPherson College is about the same as it would be to a separate district.
Kenneth Holderread, Youth Director for the Western Region, would also have the same relationship to the college. He works with the youth cabinet, composed of a youth and an adult from each district, and the Executive Committee of the CBYF in planning activities and youth conferences.
The Executive Committee of the Western Region consists of Irvin Wagner. McPherson, pres-
ident; Valerie Miller, Rocky Ford, Colo., Fellowship; Marlene Klotz, Fredricksburg, Iowa, Citizenship.
Carl Harris. Jennings. La., Witness; Bob Dell, McPherson, Faith; Dick Landrum. Hutchinson, Kas., Outreach; Paul Wagnor, Regional Youth Counselor; and Kenneth Holderread.
The president, youth counselor, and youth director make up the Administrative Committee which covers the five area functions; Fellowship. Citizenship. Witness, Faith, and Outreach.

BVF To Hold Its First Monthly Meet
There were two mistakes in last week’s Spec. Violet Hansen, who has been a cook in the cafeteria for five years, is the mother of two sons and two daughters.
Mrs. Matilda Willems has worked in the cafeteria for five years.
The first meeting of the newly organized B.V.F. organization will be held Sunday, Nov. 9, at 3 p.m, All former B.V.S'ers are invited
Teachers are to turn in the nine-week grades for students next Tuesday, Nov. 11.
Wo need more scientists! We need more powerful bombs, faster airplanes, bigger guns and more rockets.
We must out do Russia in the conquest of space, in fact we must out do every nation because after all we are the best nation on the earth!
Fellow students, is this the goal of American education? Is this the goal of every civilized nation?
Oh. don’t get me wrong, we need men of science, tremendously! But we desperately need men and women trained in liberal arts as well. We need more social workers, more teachers, better doctors. We need lawyers, politicians, ministers and just plain educated citizens for this world.
It is too easy for a nation to pride itself in its technical achievement and to neglect what is just as important, political and moral leardership.
Is our most important goal to launch man-made satellites? What does it matter if men arc suffering, starving and dying from disease?
What does it matter if the minds of our children are warped and their bodies twisted and deformed from effects of atomic testing? Just so long as we are prepared to whip Russia in a nuculear war all is well.
What does it matter if crime and violence and war plague our earth—just so long as we have scads of little spheres circling around the earth—just so long as we can beat the Russians in launching a rocket destined for the moon all is well with the world.

Cheer The Bulldogs To A Victory Tonight
Macollege students.!!! Did you realize you had a top winning team in the Kansas Conference? Would you like to show your appreciation to a team and two coaches who are hard to beat?
If you would like to show your appreciation, come out tonight to the final game of the 1958 football season as our Bulldogs take on the Bethany Swedes.
It promises to be real football weather, but don't let it scare you away. Bring blankets, gloves, carmuffs, and hot bricks, if you have them, and cheer our “Canine Vidors" on to another win.
The Junior-Senior Sunday School Class will hold a breakfast at Vaniman Hall Sunday, Nov. 9, at 8 a.m. The Sunday school lesson will be discussed there and class will be dismissed in time for church services.

Russia and the United States have been flexing their engineering muscles to show each other and all of their neighbors which one can throw a ball farther. Up to now the U.S.A. has thrown her ball higher, but Russia has been able to throw a bigger ball and keep it up longer. This throwing of the balls is supposed to scare everybody.
It has done a pretty good job of it.
But the thing we need to be scared of most is not the explosion which might result from such a ball. The danger is rather, that we may concentrate our entire education in the direction of producing balls and throwing them, rather than producing men.
An informed, scientifically trained mind is important. But a strong man with disciplines and wisdom is more important. Information will soon get out of date, but strength of character is never out of date.

As I sat in the Spec office looking out across the roof of Sharp Hall into the beautiful Kansas sky of fall. I thought that the college career of most of us is like the summer brought to an end by fall.
Summer ends in a blaze of glory with brilliant blue skies and golden and brown leaves. The air gets chilly and the grass seems to die. Yet it returns again the next year just as was promised by fall.
And so it is with a year in college. At least that is the way it should be. The college year and career should end with a blaze of glory like the fall and with a promise for future years.
But so often it seems like a college career ends looking as dead as late fall with no promise at all. This is not right for it lends to dead lives and dreams of what might have been.
Dreams that will never come true but will only hamper and remove what ambition a person has left from his lost college career. What a waste of life and talent this represents.
What a waste of brilliant minds. And yet we students continually waste our time and efforts in an attempt to merely get by and not really learn or want to learn. Why this is I cannot say.
Yet, I know that it behooves every single one of us to do the very best we can in all that we undertake. In this way and in this way only, it seems to me. can we build a real and vital interest in existence.
Each one of us should examine
ourselves to see just where our interest lies and where we are headed. Is your fuure bright or does it seem to be hidden by the mounds or work that you can’t seem to be interested in?
Just try to relate the work you arc doing to your future happiness and see how essential it is that you do your best no matter how boring the job. You will soon find a real interest in your work.
How about it? Will your college career end in a blaze of glory like the Kansas fall or will it pass fall by and turn into a Kansas winter? It is entirely up to you and your own ideals.
Dean Geisert Speaks In Tuesday's Chapel
"As Christians, we have a double concern,” said Dean Wayne Geisert in chapel Tues. Nov. 4 as he contrasted characterizations in the story of the Good Samaritan with the people of today. As Christians we should have a code of ethics and a feeling of responsibility for mankind he added.
Mr. Geisert described Christian love as, "a love that is patient, thorough, divine, dynamic, and always looking for more to encompass.”
Through life, we become involved in an incomplete kind of love.” Mr. Geisert said, and "our concern is not to help the other fellow, but to win the other fellow to our side.”
Larry Hayes, senior, McPherson. rend the scripture and Mr. Geisert offered the closing prayer.

Mr. Slimon has traveled considerably in the United States He is originally from St. Louis. Mo. and received part of his ed ucation at Washington University in St. Louis.
Most of three years were spent by Mr. Slimon teaching at the University of Wichita. He also attended the University of Wichita, and received an MFA in June 1957.

Chaff Pretents ...
By Faus, Foley, and Harris
An important monkey in the barrel of fun is a code of ethics.
Therefore, as another public service. Chaff has again done voluminous research into the wisdom of the ancients, and has come up with this special series of prodigal proverbs, especially designed for you. the McPherson College Student.
We feel that these proverbs are essential for a successful college career.
Try to pass your courses; laugh at the professor’s jokes.
Get plenty of moderate exercise; stack your neighbor’s room.
Read good literature; throw this stuff away.
Budget your time; spend part of it at Dotzour, part of it at the Doghouse, and the rest foolishly.
Get to know your classmates; you may need money sometime in the future.
Get to know your faculty; into each life some rain must fall.
Don’t study in chapel: sleep.
Dress neatly; pick a roommate about your size who has good taste in clothing.
Don’t run down the cafeteria: be a martyr.
Keep an open mind; wash your ears regularly.
Early to bed. early to rise, prevents those bags that grow under your eyes.
Don’t cram at the last minute; fail.
A steady income is necessary for college; write home regularly.
