Warren Represents, Kans. Church Related Colleges
The Kansas Advisory Council on Teacher Education, composed of representatives of various types of schools, met October 18 in Topeka, Luther Warren represents church related colleges.
The meeting was divided into committees which gave advice to the Stale Department of Education concerning certification of teachers in various fields including music, library, industrial arts, and counseling.
Dean Warren served on the committee considering the certification of librarians. Most of the school libraries in public schools in Kansas are not staffed by trained librarians. It is hoped that by 1952 this will not be true.
Another field in which Kansas has never had certification is guidance. By 1952 there should be a demand for certified teachers in the field of counseling.
The oversupply in the secondary field of education is more serious than educators realize. Soon a meeting will be held in trying to solve this problem.
In Kansas this year fewer than 50 people are working in the elementary school system who have not met in full the 1949 standards. There is only one substandard teacher in the high schools in Kansas. Standards for both systems will increase next year.

In September, forty-seven young people arrived in New York. They are guests of families located mostly in Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. Most of the students are interested in rural life and life with rural families. They have an opportunity to learn American farming methods, observe 4-H groups in action, and share in the families' work during next summer's vacation after which they will return to Germany.
This project is being sponsored by Brethren Service Commission of Elgin, Illinois, and by the Cultural Affairs Branch of the American Occupation Government in Germany.
"The unique feature of the German High School Student Project." said W. Harold Row," is that it is a cooperative one between the family, the church, and the school. The three pillars of the American community will be integrated in a program to acquaint these carefully selected German young peo-ple with the ideals and patterns of American life. The project impresses us as a concrete way in which we can further peace and international understanding between America and post-war Germany."
Church Colleges Report Decrease In Student Body
Only two of the ten church related colleges in Kansas show an increase in enrollment over last year. Baker University, Baldwin, Kas., shows an increase of 25 students over the 1948 enrollment figure, and Friends University, Wichita, shows an increase of 23 students.
Thirty-four was the average decrease for the remaining colleges. The lowest drop was at Kansas Wesleyan University which has 55 less students than last year. McPherson College shows a drop of 30 over the 1948 enrollment.

Hershberger Attends Chapel Twice Last Week
Prof. Hershberger attended chapel twice last week and upon questioning he said that he enjoyed it very much and that he planned to attend again sometime.
The above was contributed by Prof. McAuley who checks the role.
“I give my life for three things only; my God, my King, and my Country.” Ali Mohit's purpose, stated above, is not only his own, but the purpose of every “red-blooded,” loyal Iranian citizen.
This is one reason why Ali is studying in the United States and is enrolled at McPherson College. By learning to know the American people better and helping them to understand his people better, be will be more able to give of his best to his own people when he reurns home.
When All left Iran, he left many happy memories and experiences behind him, as well as 14 years of schooling. He spent six years in elementary school, six years in high school, and two years at the University of Tehran.
"The University of Tehran is one of the first universities in the
Orient and is very famous," Ali states. Students come from England, Czechoslovakia, Afghanistan, and Iraq to attend school there. Ali has pictures of the students at the University and is glad to show them to anyone who wants to see them. He is very proud of this school.
Like most people, All has many interests. He likes to study history and literature, especially that of Iran; and he enjoys writing literary articles on the things he reads. He said. "I am a very good writer in the Iranian language. I have many articles in Iranian newspapers."
Another of his main interests, or hobbies, is playing the violin. His first public appearance on Macampus was in the freshman talent show last month. In a few weeks Ali hopes to appear again, during chapel, and play several songs for us. Mr. Mohit is entirely self-taught on his instrument. He has been playing for four years.
All prefers "lighter" activities in the field of sports. He enjoys such things as volley ball and ping-pong most.
So far as personality traits are concerned, Ali has only one which he verbally expressed. He said, "I don't talk very much. I wait until someone talks to me, and then I answer."
However, Ali is always willing to talk more about his country, to
explain it to Americans. He likes the United States and McPherson College "very much," but he is quite naturally partial to his own Iran.
Ali has a collection of Iranian handiwork with him. Including tapestries, bracelets, boxes, pins, and hand-made silver. He will also show these to anyone who is interested in seeing them.
Iran is a highly civilized country. It has a number of internationally famous scientists. Khim, a great poet, and Hasabi, a famous physicist who had some of his suggestions accepted by Einstein, are both natives of Iran.
According to Ali Mohit, "Everything yon can find in the United States and Europe, you can find in Iran."

Our Unknown Ex-President
by Eugene Lyons
Few American leaders have been as cruelly and unjustly maligned, Eugene Lyons points out, as the thirty-first president.
Hoover was made the scapegoat for a world depression, the whipping boy of a nation.
The pages of his biography are crammed with facts and anecdotes many of them published for the first time.
Little Red Hummy by Myrtle Crist Porter
Mrs. Porter of Quinter, Kansas, wrote this story of family and community life as lived by a deeply religious, peace-loving, land-loving people in the 1890’s.
Although fiction, this book has biographical elements, for the Frantz family of the story was the D. A. Crist family of Quinter.
Irw|n, Mrs. Porter's son, is a sophomore at McPherson College. Other grandchildren of the D. A. Crist family, are members of the present McPherson College stu-dent body.
The Auxiliary to the American Osteopathic Association announces five Osteopathia College Scholarships of $800.00 each for the en-tering classes in the fall of 1950.
These scholarships will be applied the college tuition at the rate of $400.00 per year for the first two years of the four and one-half year professional course in the osteopathic college in which the applicant matriculates.
Osteopathic scholarship appli-cants for the entering classes of 1950 roust have completed at least two years of preosteopathic work. The osteopathic scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need, good scholarship, strong motivation toward the osteopathic school of medicine and outstanding personality traits.
Applications for the National Osteopathic College Scholarships must be completed and sent to the Director of the Office of Education prior to December 15, 1949. Each applicant should indicate the school of his choice when he writes to the director for application forms.
The address is Director of the Office of Education, American Osteopathic Association, 212 East Ohio Street, Chicago 11, Illinois.
Approved colleges of osteopathy are located in Chicago, Illinois; Los Angeles, California; Des Moines, Iowa; Kansas City, Missouri; Kirksville, Missouri; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Those interested in going to a medical college next year should get an application blank for the Medical College Admission Test. This test will be held at Kansas Wesleyan University at Salina, Jan. 16, 1950. Application blanks may be secured in Dean Warren’s office.
The Medical College Admission Test consists of a number of tests designed to measure three main categories of the candidate's ability: general scholastic aptitude, understanding of modern society, and achievement in premedical science. Specialized course work is required only for the examination in premedical science.
Scores on the Medical College Admission Test will be used by the medical colleges to supplement the other available critera for determining admission —college records, honors or awards received, recommendations, and interviews.
Kansas schools giving these tests include: University of Kansas at Lawrence, Kansas State College at Manhattan, Kansas Wesleyan University at Salina, and the University of Wichita at Wich-ita. Three other Kansas colleges are giving the tests tomorrow. October 22.
Mr. Ira Brammell was elected president of the Kansas Association of Teachers Placement Officers last Monday when the organization held its annual meeting at Washburn University in Topeka.
Miss Beulah Mullen from the University of Wichita was elected secretary-treasurer.
During discussion it was agreed that there would be an over supply of high school teachers, especially in the fields of social science, industrial arts, and physical education.
There is a tendency toward encouraging teachers with degrees to prepare for elementary teaching because of the problem of an oversupply of high school teachers and an under-supply of elementary teachers.
Ways and means of encouraging boards of education to make use of college teacher employment bureaus instead of going to regular employment agencies were discussed.
Mr. Herr from the State Department of Education pointed out that the new requirement of twenty-four hours instead of fifteen hours in the field taught which will go into effect in 1952 will not affect more than 15 percent of the teachers who are now teaching.
Prof. Rolland Plasterer left the campus early this morning to attend the regional convention of the National Association of Teachers of Singing. The meeting is to be held in Oklahoma City this afternoon and tomorrow morning.
Many of the outstanding voice teachers in this area will be the guest speakers and leaders in the panel discussions. Several recitals are on the schedule. But Professor Plasterer thought perhaps the most interesting group appearing would be a joint recital given by advanced vocal students from six different schools in this area.

League Leading Ottawa To Meet Bulldogs Tonite
Tonight at 8 p. m. in the College Stadium the alpha and omega of the Kansas Conference will meet as the league leading Ottawa Braves, defending champions for the past two years, will meet the McPherson College Bulldogs, at present working on their third consecutive last place conference finish.
The Bulldog’s conference record is 0-3 and seasonal mark is 1-4. The Braves have beaten Kansas Wesleyan 12-7 and Bethel 26-6 in the conference but lost to Missouri Valley 20-6 and Central (Mo.) 6-0 in out of league play.
McPherson has now lost 16 consecutive conference games and except for two victories over Sterling, have been on the losing end the last 22 games.
Ottawa not only lost their head coach of '47 and '48, Wally Fors-berg, but the Braves were hit heavily by graduation this season. Another regular, Marvin Rollo, transferred to the University of Kansas. However, they still have 19 lettermen to rely on including all-conference backs Bob Musgrave and Stan Hughes.
Dick Peters, formerly assistant at Ottawa, has moved up to the head post and he still retains the general system of his old boss. Forsberg.
Braves Use Single Wing
Peters has eliminated the shift that Forsberg used at Ottawa and now uses at Kansas Wesleyan, but he still strikes his offensive from both the single wing and the T and protects both with an unbalanced line.
The Braves have lost three hard running backs from last year. Bob Modre, Bob Behee, and dash man Hank Doering. Musgrave has been shifted to quarterback but still does most of the passing. Vet Vaughn Kimbrough has been the Brave’s best running threat from tailback with pile driving Stan Hughes softening the middle.
Rounding out the starting back-field is Everett Vise with Ross Correll and two promising fresh, Bill Pratt and Don Hoover, in reserve.
The starting line will probably find Paul Robbins and Jim Keal at ends. Bill Claflin and Bob Lawson at tackles, Jim Pitts and Jim Arensburg at guards, and Max Al-cock at center. All the Braves are on the active list except for reserve end Johnny Wilson, out with a bum leg.
Stevens Shifted To Center
Coach Frosty Hardacre of the Bulldogs has shifted the portly sophomore from Rock Falls Ill., Don Stevens, from guard to center. The pivot post has been
Tillman one of the biggest worries for Hardacre all year.
Another shift will find co-cap-tain Carroll Tillman vacating his old post at guard to go into the backfield at least part time. Tillman has been working out this week in the secondary and showing considerable more running power than has been exhibited by the slow moving Bulldog backs all year.
Otherwise the Bulldog lineup will remain approximately the same. Freshman wingman Bill Seidel received an arm injury in early week practice sessions but has recovered enough to start tonight.

Col. Earl (Red) Blaik, the astute headman of Army's big Black Knights of the Hudson, has astounded the country’s leading football strategists this season by using only one type of defense in the first four games.
As George Halas introduced the T to the world via his Chicago Bears the whole grid situation has leaned farther to the offense. To combat the point scoring spree the defense became more involved. Coaches invented defenses ranging from the 4-4 that Fritz Crisler used against Blanchard and Davis in the '46 Army-Michigan game (Blanchard was stopped cold but Davis took to the defense like a boll weevil takes to cotton) to the eight man line that the Philadelphia Eagles used in the college all-star game in August.
Blaik has used a 6-2-2-1 exclusively in beating Davidson, Penn State, Michigan, and Harvard in successive weeks.
The theory behind the idea is that using only one defensive pattern you can really spend time coaching your players. If the talent is good, the player himself can make minor adjustments to meet given situation.
Cries of "dirty football" have been thrown around nicely toward Notre Dame and southwest footballers this season but the action hasn't reached the midwest. The Sterling-Bethany game last week didn't produce a single penalty.
Shed no tears for Wally Fors-berg. Many people have doubted the sanity of Forsberg’s departure from Ottawa, where he won two pennants, to Kansas Wesleyan, where he immediately lost his first four games.
However, those Coyotes have enough good looking underclass-men to make Forsberg’s outfit profitable from an artistic point-

of-view besides the monetary angle.
Judging by the results of the Bulldog game, the efforts of freshman backs Doyle Hrabe, Ray Dahl, Harold Frazzell, and Bill Martin should bear six-point fruit in the next three years. Forsberg must have used opium to drag Martin, a much-sought for athlete from Leavenworth away from the big schools.
The McPherson College Bulldogs lost their 16th consecutive Kansas Conference football game at Martin Field. Salina last Saturday as Kansas Wesleyan won their first league of ’49 by an overwhelming 54-7 score.
The Coyotes scored eight of the 14 times they had their hands on the ball.
Four minutes after the kickoff quarterback Doyle Hrabe sneaked from the two foot marker to start the Coyotes on their merry way. Five plays later center Bob Wagner of the Coyotes blocked Charlie Petefish’s punt on the 18. Four running plays moved the ball to the 12 from which Don Howe hit halfback Bill Martin with a scoring pass. Martin, a freshman from Leavenworth, missed the conversion, but he hit six for eight during the game.
After holding the Coyotes from scoring the next two times they handled the ball, the Bulldogs found this monotony too great, and Keith Brown intercepted a Petefish aerial and went 26 yards for the third TD.
The Bulldogs played their best ball the rest of the second quarter and scored their first conference touchdown In that period following an intercepted pass. Chuck Petefish was the big gun in the attack, picking up 41 yards in five carries and completing two passes. The scoring play started from 12 yards out with co-captain Salty Tillman lateraling to Petefish for the six point punch. Petefish passed to Bob Bechtel for the extra point.
Thereafter it was all Wesleyan. Howe fired two more touchdown passes. Ole Smith one—a 51 yard-er to Galon Keeling—, and Keith Brown and Harold Frazzell scored on the ground.
For the Bulldogs Petefish continued his fine play for a losing cause. Co-captain Vernon Blick-enstaff caught five aerials—a good night's work for any end. Joe Pate was a bulwark in the line, both on offense and defense. The efforts of the rest of the Bulldogs were pretty well summed-up by the final score.
Winston Goering wishes to thank those persons that put his car in out of the rain last Tuesday night in the shelter of Sharp Hall. According to Winston the car runs better now than before.
