President of Bethany College Pays Us a Visit
Mon., Nov. 9—-President E. F. Pilhbled of Bethany college gave the chapel address this morning, taking as his subject “Where Do You Live?"
Dr. Pihlblad said that one cannot tell where a man lives by a map or by the city directory; also that men may oven live In the same house and still be the antipodes of one another.
The reality of life, he stated is not so much the sights and Bounds about us, but our interpretation and perception of these things. A student might be living in a world of grades and very little else, when he should be living in the field of knowledge. Edison was cited as an example of great service in the world of electricity. Dr. Pihlblad warned against the danger of allowing too many ac-cessories and side issues interfere with things of greater value.
He concluded by saying "The real

She said that some people lack a true value of money, and that, if we use our riches in the best way, we must contribute the best we have to their development.
Blanch Harris sang a special solo. Florence Dresher was the discussion chairman.

Wed., Nov. 11—This afternoon the McPherson college Bulldogs tangle with the strong Ottawa Braves foot-ball aggregation on the Ottawa field.
The Bulldogs realize that that Ot-tawa team is the best It has been In years, and they have been going through strenuous workouts preparatory to this battle.

Braves, and the team Is built around this man. His passing has been at-tracting much favorable comment throughout the state: He is also a

Annual Dramatic Production Was Omitted Last Year
Fri., Nov 6 - At a meeting held this morning In Prof. J. A. Blair's lecture room the senior class decided to give a play again this year.

Members Tell of Their Attitudes Toward Mission Work
Thurs., Nov. 5- Twenty-two peo-ple discussed their attitudes toward Christian missions in a World Service Group discussion tonight. It was brought out In the discussion that at one time nearly half of those present had considered mission service as a life vocation, but now none were definitely planning on that type of work, and only three were even considering It. Among the reasons for this change of attitudes, were growing Interest In other vocations, realization that, one's abilities had not fitted him for missions, and that one's original enthusiasm was due to hero-worship rather than to a general interest.
This discussion proved to be one of the most Interesting that the World Services Group has had and will be continued at their neat regular meeting.

"Larry, Thoughts of Youth," Reveals Youth's Attitudes
Tues., Nov. 10-- The Y. W. C. A. of the college presented a book to the library today entitled “Larry. Thoughts of Youth."
The book is one of the most unus-
ual books ever published. It is Youth interpreted by Youth, giving the diary and letters of a modern college student. written without fear of critical eyes. Larry Foster attend-ed Lafayette college in the East but during his college career he met with death.
Since Larry's death many requests from his friends have prompted the publishing of these tremendously in-teresting writings "Larry" Is not fiction but rather the unspoiled, frank expression of a modern youth who faced life whole-heartedly.
John H. Finley, editor of the New York Times, says that the beautiful thing about this book Is that It is youth’s happy, hopeful though often perplexed, frank revelation of itself And not age's memory or revision of
The book is a gift from the local Y. W. C. A. to the college library. The book has been read widely on
Give Program on World Peace in Throe Churches
A McPherson college deputation team, sponsored by the World Ser-vice Group, will leave the campus next week-end to give programs In three Churches. On Saturday eve-ning, November 14, the team will give a program at the Holland Church of the Brethren, of which Lawrence Lehman, a student here is pastor.

Members of the team are Lois Ed-wards, Gulah Hoover, Mildred Hunk, Delvis Bradshaw, and Harvey Shank.
Thirteen years ago "the war to end wars" was brought to a close. Was It a "war to end Wars?” The A Allies won the war and the Germans were defeated. However, who really knows who won that great catastrophe?
A peace treaty was fixed. Is It not up to us to help make it permanent?
The next four or five months will have a profound influence In mould-ing sentiment for peace. What takes place at Geneva, Switzerland, during the International Disarmament Conference la of utmost significance to every civilized nation of the world. -
As a college student, are you interested In world peace? A state Student Disarmament Conference will he held at Washburn college, Topeka, on December 4 and 5. The success of such a conference ran be and will be measured largely by the response that college and university groups give to It In thought and action for peace.
As college students, are we willing to contribute in helping to bring “peace-on earth, good will toward men"?—A, Y,
You stand on the threshold of life, and yon need courage. You need the courage to have Ideals and the courage to be true to them. Do not, be afraid of life and its problems. The equipment which you bring to your life will be the solvent of these problems. The learning which you are receiving here is merely added to those things which you may possess or develop for yourself. If you have the right Ideals and the will to work; your mission In life will be accomplished in a way that will bring you satisfaction and contentment.
Have faith In yourself, because faith works wonders, and without faith In yourself you will limit your own capacity to succeed. Do not let this faith however, develop into conceit and arrogance; Even the most successful men with the most abounding faith In themselves, the most vigorous energy and courage, possess that rectifying quality of modesty which is essential if one Is to be truly successful in whatever place In' life one occupies.
Be rational In all things. Above all, keep your minds clean and active. Mental sordidness will react on you physically and spiritually and will destroy that which la most beneficial In your struggle for success. To the boy who la plodding daily through his routine, doing hard and conescien-tious work. It may seem a little difficult to keep that high spirit and transform Into adventure that, which seems so commonplace and possibly dull.
Remember, at your age, that the work-a-day things are merely the prelude, the preliminary to your eventual life's work. Remember the drudgery of the singer, the violinist, the pianist. Think of the daily toll the repetition, and In mast cases, the hard taskmasters. But you can easily visualize the triumph that follows and the joy and happiness that come In the ultimate success that is bound to follow.—Selected,
THAT BULLDOG SPIRIT
Day after day a bunch of boys trot out upon the football field. Hour after hour these boys go through a long process of hard, grinding exer-
cise. When the day's grind la through this bunch of dirty, sweaty boys drop upon the ground, panting and exhausted. They look hard and they are hard. But when the chosen eleven stand facing another eleven, this grind Is forgotten and In each breast there is a pounding heart, and each man stands ready with grim determination that he will do his best.
The whistle blows. The game Is on, The sound of leather against leather, the crash of smashing bodies is heard from the dust-laden field. Another crash, and a cry or a curse, and someone is carried off the field. The boys are sad, but they go on and on. We see them smashing, fighting, grabbing, pushing, shoving, yelling to "get your man".
They are down. They are up. They are all over the field. And after a hard fight they have lost the game. We see the hard lips tremble and perhaps a tear or two trinkles down the hardened cheeks. But we also see a greater determination in their faces and we hear the low mutterings of the men as they say. “We will beat them next time."
What Is It that urges these boys on? Why do they go on fighting when they are hurt and beaten? Why do they become angry when carried Off the field? Why do they fight and go on fighting? Why? Because they are fighting for you and your school, They have that "Bulldog spirit" ground and drilled Into their systems. Each man is willing to give his best, his all. and his life for his team and his college.
Students and faculty, would you be willing to go through hours and hours of grind and killing exercise? Are you willing to go into battle not knowing whether you would be carried off the field broken and bruised? Are you willing to suffer bruises and pains?
-It takes he-men and she-women to cheer when luck’s against
you. Any old fool will cheer and smile when things go his way but it takes real men to be cheerful when everything seems lost. Does McPherson college produce men or robots? Let's hope it's the former. Come on; students, let's get the old fight and show our boys we are behind them through thick and thin; Let's show them we are ready to fight, and die for M. C. Let's show them we still have that "Bulldog spirit."—By W. A. P.

SEEN ON THE CAMPUS HEARD IN THE DORM!
Prof. Milton Doll and family motored to Beatrice, Nebraska, where they visited friends and relatives Saturday and Sunday.
Gulah Hoover visited friends in Manhattan during the week-end.
Students are too much inclined to feel that they are in school for the purpose of preparation, and do not take advantage of the many opportunities which they have for actual accomplishment while in school. The more creative projects which the student can carry through, the better will he his fitness to go on to bigger and better accomplishments when school days are ended.
Here are two examples of creation of a particular type—two poems written by Edith Bechtelhelmer, a freshman. The first gives her Impression of McPherson college as she found it:
Her mountains, her valleys, her plains,
I sit here in awe and rapture As I gaze at this grand domain.
"I stop and wonder how it all can
These beautiful rocks, and mountain streams;
I feel so small as I now can see The perfection of God's Great Theme.”
Dear M. C.
'The college campus on the brow of a hill
Is a picture supreme and fair;
It's a picture made more beautiful still.
When one sees the lives lived there.
"The College Hill people have lofty aims,
A Christian spirit prevails;
Love with all its beauty reigns.
And no other this life assails."
And the next was written this summer in the Colorado Rocky Mountains:

Judging from the number of alumni and former students on the cam-pus during the past, week, one might think that the teachers’ meeting was In McPherson. The following alumni and former students were among those on the campus; Mrs. W. G. Grabeel—known to the students as Chester Carter; Ruth Blah, Naomi Whitmore, Ruth Turner, Marguerite Hubbard, Kenneth Rock, Ralph and Paul Bowers, Vernon Spillman. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Landes, Carroll Walker, Harry Zinn, and John Wagoner.

THE FEATURE WRITER GIVES US SOME INSIDE
DOPE ON-WELL, GUESS WHAT THE IDEA IS
If any one should happen to question me as to what I thought about, feature writing, I would very happily tell them that I thought it was the most distressing nerve racking occupation I had over chanced to spend my precious moments doing. There are at least five hundred other really worth while things I should be doing at this very instant, but instead here I am laboring over a typewriter, trying to turn out a master thought piece for the renowned Spectator. I have enumerated to myself exactly five hundred duties and pleasures that I could be enjoying and occupying my time with now and I am not through yet. I might put these down on paper for you to witness and criticize but I think too much of my private business for that; so I'll Just be content with pitying my own self and not ask for sympathy from any body.
Evidently there are a few days when the follow who is supposed to write the feature can't make his brain function and as far as his mentality is concerned is what you might cull mortally wounded. If you haven't already discovered this- bit of information for yourself, I'll disclose to you now that that is what is hindering my progress. In fact every thing seems to be in a conspiracy against me and my feature. Even the weather had to go and act funny and thus aggravate me further, it is raining outside so that I cannot open the windows unless I would like to paddle around in water inches deep all over the floor, while at the same time the place is simply too hot and stuffy for any normal individual to exist in comfortably and the radiator dufloopy is stuck, consequently it is impossible to turn off the heat.
I'm a fool and I know it, for whoever heard of waiting until Monday to try to get an inspiration. I believe I'll turn over a new leaf or make a resolution or something, to the effect that never again will I attempt this job on Monday, but always and always have It finished by twelve o'clock Sunday nite.
Parden me, while I take time out I just see the faint glimmerings of an Idea---
Nope, it’s no use, it simply won't materialize, these Ideas of mine are either too hot or too cold to develop and submit to the public.
And that's another trouble with this type of work. You put something down which seems perfectly undervisible and open minded to you reupon you must either attempt to elucidate, throw light upon or make clear in some manner the hidden meaning, substance, content or what have you in the above enigma or else your loving public won't comprehend at all what you are driving at. And what's the use of fooling around with this bunk if no one is capable of appreciating your talent.
Why, you can spend hours and hours thinking faithfully, diligently and inspiringly and then transplanting those thoughts into words and in spite of this fact the whole durned
institution thinks it is all a mess and one grand flop. I beg your pardon, but it almost drives me to slang; truly, it is one heck of a life.
Five o'clock and time to have this into the editor—-ye gawds, here is where I get going! But alas and alas as I try to focus my wandering thoughts upon something sane and sensible, 50,000 wild and scattered ideas dash through my brain.

SOPHOMORES PLAN PICNIC
The sophomore class Is planning to have a picnic on Friday afternoon of this week. The committee is attempting to secure a truck and go to Coronado Heights near Lindsborg for the outing. If the truck cannot be secured the class will go to Ander-son's grove north of McPherson.

Kansas Conference schools won two games, lost one, and tied one in their schedule of non-conference games last week.
Kansas Wesleyan, the undefeated co-leader in conference standings with Bethany, was outplayed gener-ally by Phillips university of Enid. Oklahoma, but won the game by a score of 6 to 0 at Salina Saturday, on a 60-yard run by Buckland, right halfback. after a Phillips pass was intercepted.
Ottawa brought in the other victory by a win over Bethel college. 27 lo 0. The game was played at Ottawa.
Baker university played to a 7-7 tie with Wiliam Jewell of the Missouri College Union at Kansas City, in the annual battle between these old rivals, Bethany college was defeated 7 to 0 by Friends university at Wichita.
The only conference game to be played this week is the Armistice Day game Wednesday between McPherson and Ottawa, Baker goes outside of the loop to play Missouri Valley at Baldwin Friday night, while Bethany meets Hays Teachers of the Central Conference at Lindsborg.
The Bulldogs did not have a game the past week, but Coaches Binford and Selves put their charges through some stiff workouts. On Friday a regular game was played between the first and second strings with the regulars winning by a 20-0 score.
During this practice game the first string showed a fine offensive at times. Carpenter was going off tackle for some mighty nice-gains. Haws was in the lineup part of the time at his old position and was running the team in fine shape. Binford made some good gains and handled the team well on offense.
Wiggins was doing his fine job of
punting and Moore on the reserve team also got off some nice kicks. McGill, playing the center position, has come up rapidly, and is looking good at his position. Countryman blocked a kick that put the regulars in a position for one of their touchdowns.
We notice that Friends university had a great Homecoming and humbled our "Swede" friends to the tune of 7 to 0. Again it was the flashy Morton of the Quakers that spelled defeat for the Swedes. The Quaker captain ran 70 yards for the only score of the game on the same
play that he used in his long run against the Bulldogs. Morton had fine intereference when he started this long jaunt, but when he got on: In the open he dodged, side-stepped, and ran his way to the goal.
The Swedes didn't seem to have much drive in this game. It is in-teresting to note that Friends made three more first downs that the Swedes, and McPherson made one more first down than Friends in the recent Bulldog-Quaker battle. Also, the Swedes made but 13 yards from scrimmage (net yardage exclusive of passes), while the Bulldogs made 100 yards against this same team.
Kansas Wesleyan, the Conference leaders, won a non-conference game
from Phillips university by a 6-0
score. Burkland, Coyote buck, intercepted a pass and ran sixty yards
the Bulldogs have Improved since the first of the season. In an early season game Wesleyan defeated Mc-Pherson 4 7 to 0 while Phillips was able to score but one touch down a few weeks later.

Herbert Mowbray, president, was delegated to select, a committee to decide upon the date of the banquet, which is one of the outstanding social events of the school year.

Membership does for the year were set at one dollar.
A Speedograph duplicator has been constructed recently in the Department of Industrial Arts, under the direction of Prof. Milton S. Dell. This machine is far superior to the small duplicating devices in common use as it has a Beckloth roll fifteen feet long, and therefore is capable of making about fifteen copies at once instead of only one. Commercial devices similar to the one made in the McPherson college shops are sold on the market for ninety dollars, but this one was built with only a small cost for materials.
Most of the work was done by Donald Trostle, assistant in the woodwork shop.
This device will dispense with the expense of mimeographing the material to be used in connection with the course.
"If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t; If you'd like to win, but you think you can’t.
It's almost a cinch you won't,
”If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost. For out of the world we find. Success begins with a fellow’s will— It's all in the state of mind.
"If you think you are outclassed, you
You’ve got to think high to rise. You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize,
“Life's battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But. sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks be can.”
