Tues., Oct. 8—Seventy-five men heard the Y, M. speakers proclaim the practicability of honesty here this morning.

The program was a continuation of the theme of last week. Charles Austin led devotions and spoke briefly of the Impossibility of hiding truth.

Melvin B. Landes spoke of Honesty in the Dormitory. He said that Cot-lege is life, dormitory life Is the major part of college. and therefore the Way we live In the dormitory will de-termine our future characters, Cred-it is a fundamental aspect of charac-ter and we must inspire credit In ourselves. Dishonesty destroys credit and spells failure. Honesty means absolute honesty in every detail, lt is the small dishonest act that it most dangerous for one act leads to another. The act of taking another's soap may lead one to become a criminal,    

Honesty In the classrooms was discussed by Irvin Hump. Cribbing is one form of dishonesty which Is prac-ticed but lt does no good for the individual. It cannot leave him a clear conscience.

Cheating as distinct from cribbing involves the help of another person. It Is on the same plane as cribbing. lt doesn’t pay when one enters busi-ness to have such a record.

Be Genuine.

Are women coming Into their own when they say, "I shall work my way through college" Thousands of girls throughout our nation are saying

this one thing and are meeting the answer that lt is not best to do such a thing.    

Conditions In the modern colleges have changed today from what they formerly were, it will cost the freshman of 1929 more than twice as much as it did the intrepid person Who worked her way through school before the war.

A thousand dollars a year is about the minimum of expense for the average college girl of today: this going for her board, room and tuition, leaving her nothing at all for clothes, doctor bills, amusements and emer-grencies. This hardly seems reasonable for a girl student In McPherson College and it probably isn't, but it represents an average far the whole of our country. The working girl can get along on five or six hundred a year.

Although the expenses of the ambitious student have doubled, the payment for such work that she might do has remained relatively the same as before the late war. The amount colleges pay for amateur assistance in library, laboratory, dining halls and etc., demand due consideration of the

management when they establish their yearly budget.

Moreover, few fields of money making enterprises are open to the young college girl. She ran get a position In a popular summer camp, but the chances are that her salary will be small. Along with this she would have her board and room to pay. What would she have left to go to school on? Very little, Theoretically she will be much better off In regards to her health after a summer camp life, It seems as though her greatest possibilities are better as a waitress.

College authorities are no longer favoring the college girl to work her way through school. Years of experience has taught them that few girls, however eager and willing to work that they may be. can stand up physically under the strain of money making and studying.

Very few girls can carry such a burden throughout a four year college course and not say in later life that their physical fittness was lowered. All of them are compelled to miss many of recreations, the friendships

and associations which are among the delightful features of our modern college life.

Even men students have been warned against making their way. The well known and popular youthful president of the University of Chicago, Robert M Hutchins, who himself worked his way through college, recently said: "I have waited on tables, washed dishes, worked In a factory and organised a cooperative tutoring school. But I wouldn't advise a student to work as hard as I did. lt burns up his energy".

Burning up one's energy is precisely what happens, and the burning la even more devastating to girls than to men.

According to an article appearing In a recent number of the Saturday Evening Post, by Elizabeth Jordan, the following statistics are given:

"According to Rochester College. Its 70 per cent of money-earning students attained an average grade of 75.07 per cent In their studies this year, while the 30 per cent whose expenses were paid for them had an average of only 71.56 per cent. One money-earning student made an average of 87 per cant. Nine averaged more than 82. Only three or the unemployed students ranked higher than that. Rochester naturally feels that Its moneyearning students have proved their ability ta meat their problems".

Dean Virginia Gildersleeve of Barnard is one of the moat outspoken authorities In her warning to girls who are eager to work their way through college, "It's a bad thing”, she frankly declares, "and to be avoided If there's any other possible way of getting an education".


We will appreciate it very much If you will report to the editor or any member of the SPECTATOR staff anything unique or of importance coming up In your class rooms or laboratories. The students are interested in anything of news value happening in the class rooms.


Dean Carl E. Seashore of the University of Iowa has suggested a motto for every college and university. The motto is this: "Keep each student busy at his highest natural level of successful achievement In order that he may be happy, useful and good.

Sun. Oct 13- The C. E. program this evening was a continuation of the program last Sunday and proved to be interesting and practical. Prof.

G. N. Boone again offered sugges-tions for concideration in choosing ones life's work. He reviewed much of the ground covered last Sunday and made additional statements. Some conversations he mentioned are over crowded due to their sudden popular-ity. Others are super-saturated and in a few years will offer large openings

A discussion of thre duties, prepar-ation, qualifications and opportun-ities for the ministry was presented by Charles Austin. Discussions of the some phases of newspaper work, med- and vocational teaching were have been givenbut time did not permit.

Prof. Teach spoke on the “Lure of the Immediate in Education".


Fri,Oct. 11—The college Chris-tian Endeavor held away at a party at the church parlors this evening to all those interested in the organiza-tion. Over one hundred students at-tended the entertainment.

The evening was spent first, play-ing active group games and then a short program was given. Mildred Doyle gave a musical reading "The Boy who Stuttered and the Girl Who Lisped". Again Chester Carter enter-tained the students with one of her readings "Courting Under Diffic ulties". A vocal solo was pleasingly presented by Ruth Turner. Then the college quartette sang several numbers which proved to be favorites for the students. The keen Interest in the program was shown by the applause which each number received. Bernice McClellan was in charge of the enter-tainment.

Light refreshments of ice cream, wafers, and hot chocolate were serv'd.

Before the party was broken up the group sang the college song, "O Sacred Truth”.


In Dean R. E. Mohler's private laboratory can be seen growing in a mass bed in the bottom of on aquar-ium some plants which are truly a rarity In this part of the country. These insective plants are com-mon to localities where there, Is ex-tensive rainfall and are known as the Pitcher Plant, the Venus-Fly-Trap and the Sun-dew,

The Pitcher Plant has a modified leaf form in the shape of a pitcher, this leaf Is partly filled with water and is lined with fine hairs from

which the insect is unable to escape once it has crawled down Into lt, The body of the insect is digested and used as food by the plant.

The Venus-Fly-Trap has a hinged leaf coveeed with hairs which when touched by an Inject, closes up, hold-ing the insect until is is digested. The Sun-dew is similar to the fly-trap in that it has a hair fringed leaf which closes up when irritated.

city at the present time.Dr. Franklin spoke on the subject of the "Enlarg-ing Social Vision”,

A special treat of two solos by Ruth Turner was enjoyed. The re-lections were "O Heart Of Mine" and "Wild Song"

Fri. Oct. 11 — Dr. l. Gordon\ Chambers, pastor of the St. Paul's Methodist Church, Wichita, spoke in

chapel this morning. A message of

unuaual merit and brilliance of pre-sentation was brought on the subject "Flaming Youth".

Dr. Chambers has no patience with the Idea that youth is going wrong. Saye he " A lot that is interpreted as evil in the youth of today is merely the frankness of youth. Age is dia-erect, veneered, polished. Youth blurts out doesn't care what others

think... Out present System of

amalgamation and specialization has brought a terrible strain upon youth that parents can relieve only by prayers and childhhod training Schools such as this are delevloping Titan characters in an independant generation that are God Almighty's great dream".



Dr. J. W. Fields has recently added to his many generous gifts in worthy causes by sending a substantial check to President Schwalm. to be used for the Library, "or as you see best for the college'’.

Miss Della Hoerner has recently added $50.00 in a loan fund for girls which she started some time ago. This fund and others which the col-lege holds is used to help worthy girls through college.

Both those gifts are to causes that are worthy. We thank these friends heartily and hope that other friends of the college will take this effective way of expressing their Interest In the college.

Canines Make 2 Touchdowns First 10 Minutes


Line Men Do Good Work In Stopping The Irish

St, Mary's, Kan. Sat., Oct. 12— McPherson College Bulldogs humbled the St. Mary's Knights here this aft-ernnon by a. score of 13-7. The game was one continual group of thrills, going first in favor of one team and then Just as decided in the favor of the other. The first quarter was un-questionably McPherson's and the last three quarters were Just as un-questionable St. Mary’s. This football game might have been closely akin to the World Series baseball game that took place Just preceding it.

A play for play account of this game cannot be given since there was no Spectator reporter on the ground, but the account of thone Bulldog supporters who sae the game; say that the Knights kicked-off to the visiter’s forty-yard line. The canines return-ed the ball by hard playing through the tine and at times took to the air until they had placed the ball on the St. Mary's twenty yard line, when they lost possession of it. The Knights punted by the Bulldogs soon returned the ball and crossed the Irish goal line. The next few plays gave the Buildoge possession of the ball In Catholic territory again and they had soon crossed the St. Mary’s goal line twice in the first ten minutes of the game.

The second quarter saw the home team much stronger and by the end of the first half it looked to be St, Mary’s game Early In the third period the Irish crew scored and a large portion of the last half the game was played with the ball behind the visitor’s twenty-yard line, to the fourth period the Catholics placed the ball on the McPherson one-yard line and were gaining at every play until adjustments were made In the Bulldog line that stopped the terrible on-slaught of the Knightly fellows. Much honor of winning thu game Is due to the ability of Bowers, Zink. Sargent. Windmill, Wine, Hocherster and .Longel, line men. in stopping the Irish when they had crowded the pig-skin down within the shadows of their goal, McPherson gained possession of the ball In her own-territory about eight Inches from the goal line, punted out, and when the game was over, was still In possession of the ball marching steadily through the opposing line for it third touchdown.

The St. Mary's attack was largely an aerial one and the Bulldog at-tack was largely "straight football". Indications are that the total yard age gained for the local school was twice that of the visitors.

Score by quarters:

McPherson    13 0 0 0 13

St, Mary’s 0 0 7 0 7

The football teams of McPherson College and Ottawa University meet for the first time in history, on the local gridiron Friday afternoon. This is also the first 1929 home game for the Bulldogs, and with their performance against the Knights last week as a background, should be quite an outstanding attraction.

Both the Bulldogs and Braves rank in the 500 section of the conference standing, this week, each having played two games and tasted of vic-tory and defeat. The Bulldogs will go on to the field fresh from thu victory over the Knights, bolstered op by the help of their star quarterback and captain Ray Nonken, who was not In the St. Mary's game on account of Injuries sustained in the Salina game two weeks ago. Thu Braves suffered defeat at the hands of the Terrible Swedes last Friday, by a score of 13 0. They also played Bethel College and defeated them 14-o the week be fore.


The Bulldog victory over St Mary's last Saturday was the second In the nine years that the two teams have played each other, Their first contest, which took place In '21 ended 17-14 to favor of the Irish, The second contest. that of ’22 ended in favor of the Bulldogs, 12-14. Since then the Irish have always emerged victorious, until the clash last Saturday, In 1923 when the conference championship was held at McPherson, the Irish de-feated the Champs 6-0, being their only defeat of the season, In 1928 the Bulldogs tied the Knights at 6-6, aft-er being outplayed the entire game. The 7-13 defeat last Saturday was the worst trouncing the Bulldogs ever gave the strong Catholic team.
