Is One Of Prettiest And Most Popular Plays Of Last Few Years—Written By Barry Conners—Is Story Of A Girl Who “Runs Second" To Her Sister


Club Membership Open To Everyone Except The Freshmen-To Have Tryouts

The Thespian club, honorary dramatic organization on the campus, has selected the play "The Patsy," a three-act comedy by Barry Conners, to be presented sometime the first of December in Convention Hall down town, however, the exact date has not as yet been made.

The play will be directed by Mrs. Lawrence L. Gates who last year pro-duced the organizations play, "The Queen's Husband." Last year Mrs. Gates was head of the dramatic de-partment of the College but this year is not connected with the College in any way, the College having done away with the dramatic department.

"The Patsy" is one of the prettiest and most popular plays of the past few years. Clarborne Foster has popularized this play all over the country. The story concerns Pat-

ricia Harrington, a girl who "runs second" to her older sister. She is the Patsy who is blamed whenever anything goes wrong, and is forced to remain in the background in order that her sister may be presented to advantage. Her, father, a travel-ing man, is on her side, and fin-ally declares his independence by putting Ma in her proper place. This brings about Patsy's ultimate triumph and needless to say, affords her happiness as the bride of the man she loves.    

As a recent meeting of the organi-zation it was voted to have member-ship limited to seniors, juniors, and sophomores, excluding all the fresh-men. This move was taken to keep

But Is Not Always Well Marked —Gives Address In Chapel

Fri., Oct. 17—Prof. Boone spoke on, "The Way of Life” in chapel this morning. Lifes way is like a high-way, not always well marked. The best way is often the hardest way; crooked and rough.

A good start is half the battle. In training track men for a race the coach teaches them to start fast. We need our best teachers in the lower grades to give beginners a good start. Prof. Boone mentioned that some of the freshmen on our campus were not very well started in their college work. He said that he believed the habits formed during the first few weeks of college would largely de-termine our college life.

There are many forks in the road. Questions and problems arise. We should choose the best rather than the good. After we find the way we must keep our hearts diligent or we will lose it, for there are many distractions along the path of life.

In conclusion Prof. Boone read a poem "The Tale of the Trail."


In a certain class in the College last week the question of education and the number of children to each family was discussed and as a result some amazing statistics have been compiled to show that out of a class where 32 families were represented the average number of children to the family was 5,1. The statistics also show that in cases when both the parents are either high school or college graduates the average num-ber of children to the family is con-siderably lower, which goes to show that the greater amount of educa-tion the smaller the families.

The statistics show that in 12 cases out of the 33 families both the father and mother received only a grade school education. To these 12 families were born 67 children or an average of 5.5 to the family.

There were 2 cases where both par-ents received a high school educa-tion, having a total of 22 children children to the family was 4. The 3 cases in which both parents were college graduates the average number of children to the family was 4.

There were 4 cases where one par-ent had a grade school education and the other a high school educa-tion, having a total of 22 children or an average of 5.5. Six cases of where one parent was a grade school and the other a college graduate with 27 children or an average of 4.5. Two cases of one parent a high school and the other a college edu-cation with a total of 14 children or an average of 7.

Of the 32 families represented in the class there was a total of 164 children or an average of 5.1 per family.

Conference Leaders Have Been “Running Wild”—Have Won Two Games


McPherson Has Had Two Weeks Of

Hard Workouts—Lines Are

   About Even

When the Bulldogs meet the Baker Wildcats here Friday night they will face the Kansas conference leaders who have been running wild this season and it seems that no team is able to hold them. Their ferocity has been made manifest by the way they trounced the powerful Kansas Wes-

leyan Coyotes by a score of 19-0. They were running wild when they played the Swedes and handed them a defeat of 61-6.

Although the Baker line averages only 172 pounds they seem to possess a special faculty for drive and speed. The Wildcats will depend upon Lango to do their passing. Stock and Cook-son comprise a pair of fast shifty half backs that are hard to stop. It is around this trio that the Wildcats place their hopes of victory Friday night.

Despite the coming battle the Bull-dogs with a rest last Friday, will be ready for whatever the Baker Wild-cats have to offer. Together with the new material and some good hard scrimmages these last two weeks the Binford men are in top form to give the Wildcats a real battle. Since Baker's average weight does not sur-pass that of McPherson so very far, this should enable the Bulldog line to check the Baker offense.

There is a mistaken idea current with a certain type of reformer that newspapers carry the functions of creators and censors of the public taste. They complain of the general contents of the daily papers because they contain news and feature stories that offend the reformer's notion of what the people ought to read.

Newspapers are, in a way, guardians of the public morale within the terms of the law and the canons of common decency. They are published as a rule by men of clean character, habits and taste, as jealous of the good morals of their own families as is any reformer in the land. They print newspapers that pass through the mails without offense to the laws which protect against indecency and immorality and that are welcomed by the most correct and intelligent people of the country.

The objective of the newspaper is to report to its readers as fully and reliably as possible the news of human current transactions and the events of nature. The pages are kept sensitive to the demands of the reading public. They are photographic plates of the day and the public watches and searches them as the astronomer does his plates of the night to catch the phases of the heavens and possibly discover a new planet.

The popular pages of the newspaper reflect very accurately the phase of public taste, created otherwise than by the newspapers. The new columns are the study of a section of the public, the society columns are most important to another section, the sports pages to yet another, the market pages to another, and so on through the make-up of the daily issue. But the public at large wants "all the news that is fit to print", by the common standards of public interest and curiosity, so that the run of the readers are the proper censors of the press and not the fervid re-formers who are monomaniacs on particular phases of popular life.

Every living thing is related through a common descent to all the rest of life—H. G. Wells.    


Always are we waging a war against time. Time and space are being eliminated by the efficiency of progress and the terminating desire to coup with finance and business. The science of progress is the science of de-feating time. The world is taking on a “hurry, hurry” aspect that is fluttering the mighty winds that govern our atmosphere.

Last year the Graff Zeppelin spanned the 5,500 miles between Toyko and the Golden Gate in one hour less than three days. Hawks recently ate breakfast in San Diego and that evening dined in New York City. Recently a news-reel photographer in Chicago took news pictures of a well known actress as she was descending from a train and three hours later the same film was flashed on the screen before an astonished crowd in New York—television.    You can read daily New York newspapers in

London the morning they are issued in New York. And what is more— we ask —is there anything ahead? Some say that they are not satisfied yet. The science of progress now dreams, and it won't be long, when one can write a letter in his office and it will be instantly received in facsimile by the person to whom it is addressed—wherever he may be.

The peace and solitude of a century ago is giving way to things of greater away. We have been endowed with a cosmic desire for speed. We are getting it. We want things that are new—things that are alive—and things that terminate our personal desires. One can but realize the rhelm of activity in which we are living and we can only be thankful that we are alive and are living in the age of "war against time."

It's foolish to kick against things you can't help. But you don't know you can't help them until you have kicked.


There are many customs around this man's college: some good, some bad, and some adolescent. There is one that has been a sort of sore thumb to some people. It isn't one that is tangible or anything like that, but it is pretty hard to fight just the same. There have been those who attempted to break over it and got rather promptly sat on. There are those who object to it but don't do anything about it. This custom in essence is: a couple have once publicly dated and have thereby estab-lished unique claim upon one another. By the time of the second date it has assumed almost the proportions of possession and by the third it is conceded to be all over but the announcements—anyhow, it is that bad.

What we need to meet the crisis is a number of devoted, sacrificial young men who will whole heartedly throw themselves into the cause and date a different girl each night for fourteen successive nights until we have crushed this dire custom which is threatening the social well being of M.C.

Sponsor Minnich Says To Share For An Abundant Life

Tues., Oct. 21—To share in order that the other person may have an

incite into a more abundant life was the meaning of missions given by Sponser Minnich at a joiet meeting of the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. organ-izations this morning.

Minnich is the Educational Scere-tary of General Missions of the Brethren.

When Christ came to this world he shared truths with the people in the darkness thus bringing light to many. Through these revelations we are able to know the truths and it is our duty to take them to those who do not. In addition to the thoughts given by Minnich this morn-ing he is scheduled to talk further along this same line this evening. Irwin Rump led devotionals.

The Science of Worrying

We have discovered that it is best to worry about a number of things at the same time instead of concen-trating on some worry. We have the blues when we think about no-thing execpt our dates and life seems hardly worth living when we worry about nothing except our lessons. We almost become ill when we do all our worrying over the thought that out money is gone. Worrying about any one of these things is terrible, but it isn't had when we worry about it all at the same time. When we put dates, lessons and money togeth-er and worry about them in a lump, there is so much of it that we are un-equal to the task of worrying suffi-ciently, so we cheer up.

It is possible for a bald-headed man to be a failure although he has come out on top.

Ted Crist Has Lived Four Miles From The Notorious Bandit All His Life—Says Fleagles Were Good Neighbors—Ted Talked With "Jake" A Week Before Lamar,

Colorado Bank Robbery

A student of McPherson college has had the unique experience of having one of the most notorious bandits of the west as his neighbor, a man who has been called the "Wolf of the West", who has murdered, who hass robbed, and who has been a fugitive from justice for the last two years. This bandit was none other than the nationally known "Jake" Fleagle, who was leader of the band of bandits that robbed the Lamar, Colo., bank two years ago last summer killing a number of the bank of-ficials, and who last week was killed by Los Angeles authorities on a train near Branson, Mo.

Ted Crist, son of Rev. and Mrs. J. E. K. Crist, who lives 25 miles north-west of Garden City, Kan., a sophomore at McPherson college, has known "Jake" all his life. The bandit has lived within four miles of the Crist home as long as he has been in that part of Kansas and the Crist family become quite well acquainted, in a neighboring way, but never once did they suspicion them of being members of a bandit gang.

Not more than a week before the daring robbery of the Lamar bank young Crist was working in a field near his home when ‘'Jake”, driving the car later found boxed and hid in a barn on their farm, stopped and in a neighboring manner chatted with Ted. There was nothing unusual about their conversation to warrant Crist suspecting that "Jake" was making plans for a big bank robbery. The Flengles had always been good neighbors but were not good mixers in the community. They were what one might call strictly home folks. They never attended any social af-fairs in the neighborhood and the only place they ever went to was Garden City and Friend.

Mrs. Fleagle, mother of the notor-ious "Jake'', was a member of the church and it is said she was an active worker, "I don't know of church and they say she was an a church worker as Mrs. Fleagle", Ted has remarked. But a few years before the Lamar robbery she began to drop her church work and grad-ually left it altogether. Ted's fath-er was pastor of the church. Neither "Jake” or his father or any of the other boys ever went to church.

"Jake” lived with his parents as long as he was in western Kansas on the farm. The Fleagles were not farmers but were great horse raisers and this seems to be their only source of income besides the banditry of the boys. It has been suspected that they bootlegged but no one was ever able to find that they did such and it is a question if they ever did sell liquor. In former days the Fleagles were good horsemen and usually carried off the prizes at the rodeos, and they are still riding and raising horses for an income.

It has never been known that the Flegle boys ever took anything from their neighbors and their neighbors were never any more suspicious of them as they were of any of the oth-ers.

Now "Jake'' is dead, his brother Ralph has been hanged in Colorado, Walter is in jail serving out a sen-tence, and Fred is in the courts on a charge of tax evasion.

Phillips U. Trims St, Mary's In Hard Fought Game At Enid, Oklahoma *


Kansas Wesleyan Goes To Missouri For Intra-State

Baldwin, Kan., Oct. 17—The Bak-er Univeristy Wildcats completely trimmed the Bethany Swedes here today 61 to 6 in one of the most one sided classics in the Kansas confer-ence. Bethany was out-played and out-classed in every phase of the game, gaining 115 yards at scrim-mage while their opponents chalked up 334 yards. Baker intercepted 5 of the Swedes' passes, Land, Baker, scored 5 of the Wildcat's 9 touchdowns.

Enid, Okla., Oct, 17—St. Mary's college went down fighting hard to-night before the onslaught of the Phillips Haymakers, 15 to7.

After a scoreless first half, Phillips won two points on a safety, the re-sult of a clocked punt, and climaxed their unsuccessful scoring efforts of the first half by pushing across two touchdowns. St. Mary's bit right back and with two minutes of play left, scored a touchdown on two for-ward passes which totaled 62 yards, Burns tossing them to McMiades and Klenek.
