Macollege Is Host To BSCM Conference

Bohemian Girl a Success
(Editorial) An estimated nine or ten hundred persons including students, conference guests, and townspeople attended the presentation of “The Bohemian Girl” an open by Balfe and produced by the combined Macollege Choirs Thursday night. Nov. 15, in the Community Auditorium.
Chicago Stock Show Given Nov. 24 To Dec. 1.
The International Live Stock Exposition and Horse Show will be held in the Chicago International Amphitheatre Nov. 24 to Dec. 1.
In the nine times that the two squads have clashed, the Bulldogs have come out battered and bruis-ed, but still on top of the dogpile with the record of five wins, one tie, and three losses.
Last season under 'the new leadership of Coach Woodard the Bulldogs spanked the hustling Quaker squad 38-7 in the final same of the season for both teams.
Comparing these two teams is rather difficult, for they both played in different leagues. Last week the Baker Wildcats recovered from the tailspin that they have been in all year and dumped the Quakers 34-30. In the earlier part of the grid season the Bulldogs fairly drowned the Wildcats in a rain storm to the tune of 20-6.
The Quakers have not a very impressive record when it is look-ed at from a win-loss angle; they have won 3 and lost 5. But the Quaker footballers under the lead-ership of Earl L. Craven are always a fighting bunch. If the Quakers are given a chance, they are liable to capitalize on it.
The Quakers have a fairly well-balanced team; they do not have a particular big gun in their lineup as they hud last year in Hudgins. Hudgins was the big spring in the offensive machine of the Quak-ers; and when he got wound up, the opposition was in for a rough day.
The past week Couch Woodard has been trying to keep his men from sitting back and counting the blue ribbons that they have brought home from the grid wars and taking for granted that the friends University game is already in the bag.
The Quakers are tough and will be determined to even the score with the Canines tomorrow night.
The past week the Bulldogs have been rigging up a defense to stop the split-T that the ball Club of Coach Craven employs. The pass defensive of the Bulldogs has been truly great for the most part of the season. Also, the opponents of the Canines have found it very difficult to move on the ground.
The Bulldogs have become famous this season for their great offensive mahcine that has been rolling up yardage almost at will, but had it not been for the strong defense line-up that Couch Woodard was able to put onto the field the Bulldogs might not have such an impressive record.
Last week the Bulldogs finished their Kansas Conference schedule with the best record that they have hung up since 1933, when the Bulldogs racked up seven wins to two losses. The coach leading the powerhouse of that year was Melvin Binford.
If the Bulldogs win from the Quakers, they can duplicate that record, for they now stand on top with six wins and two losses.

Moslem Student Arrives At Mac
On Oct. 16, about 9,000 miles separated Macollege’s newest student from the rest of the student body. Twenty-six-year old Nafez Abder-Rahman Budeiri, Mohammedan pre-engineering student from the Hashemite Kingdom of the Jordan arrived here on cam-pus last week to begin studies.
Nafez, whose home is in Jerusalem, flew from that city to Beirut. Lebanon where he took a boat to New York. The remainder of the trip, from New York to McPher-son, was completed by bus.
First impressions have evidently been satisfactory, for Nafez says that he likes McPherson, although it is larger than he expected, and it is "quiet and not crowded." He also likes Macollege, and plans to attend here, two years before transferring to a university.
The climate, too, is not disturbing to the Jordanite enrolee who says that Kansas weather is very similar to the weather of Palestine. American food, he says, is "very good, but different."
Budeiri is one of a family of three children. He has an older sister and a younger brother, who graduated in engineering from school in Alexandria, Egypt. His father is a Mohammedan religious man; his mother is deceased.
Before coming to this country. Budeiri was employed for two years in the Government Public Information Office (a branch of the Foreign Ministry), and for three years previous to that as a civilian electrician in the British army.
Budeiri’s country, the Hashemite Kingdom, is a section of the territory which, prior to 1945, was called the Trans-Jordan. At that time, the late King Abdullah was crowned on the throne, and the Hashemite Kingdom was created. In November of 1947 the United Nations approved a division between the quarreling' Arabs and Jews.

A Guest Editorial by Edward K. Ziegler There is still opportunity for great and courageous pioneering! Grandparents of some of today’s youth remember the Conestoga wagons, the limitless expanse of unplowed prairie and plain, the lure of mountains still unclimbed. Our generation sighs for new lands and ranges to pioneer. Well, the doors are still open! For instance: Wanted: Pioneers to build great, productive, co-operative Christian communities in new lands' being opened in the vast irrigation projects of the West.
Wanted: Pioneers to turn the vast lands around us from exploited, wind-swept plains to a new and better agriculture which will provide for communities and a richer and more productive land through the years ahead.
Wanted: Pioneers, a hundred thousand of them, to carry the technical skills in agriculture, engineering, education, healing, to the silent, hungry, oppressed billions of earth, working through governments, United Nations, the world-wide program of the Church. (An important document: Laubach’s WAKE UP OR BLOW UP!)
Wanted: Pioneers, to explore and settle the wide untrodden continent of creative prayer, to release love, kindness. power, in a world so long starving and plagued by hatred, war and greed. These shall inherit the earth. No one else can!
Tomorrow the determined Bulldogs will invade the Friends University gridiron. We feel sure that this will lie another victory for us, in spite of the wrong interpretation put on the editorial two weeks ago.
In order to win games we need a team, a good one. Macollege has that—the best for many a year. Coach Woodard and his capable staff and efficient methods have moulded our fellows, into a well-balanced team. The school ought to show its gratitude to the fellows, coach, and staff for their excellent work.
Secondly, there is a need for backing. During the season the student body has been behind the team constantly. And though a few did not attend the games away, we know that their heart was there with the fellows as they fought to win.
Directly responsible for the enthusiasm of the student body were the cheerleaders. Although the weather was rainy and the field muddy, they were there to back the team.
We were glad for Wayne’s editorial last week, and we feel sure it was helpful for us all. Too often we forget just what goes into the winning or losing of a football game.
The fans cannot know what it is like to be out there on the field, getting kicked and pushed around. They do not realize that the players put in many hours of drudgery in practice in all kinds of weather. It takes a certain kind of courage and stamina that the fans cannot know. Our fellows took their cut lips, bloody noses, and many other bruises and made no complaint.
We think that we should “square up and say, "We're from Macollege; and we’re proud of it; because of our football team and its accomplishments this year.” We have reason to be proud. A mere three years ago, the Bulldogs were at the bottom of the conference and now they are in second place.
We know that whatever happens tomorrow, a determined Bulldog team will be in there fighting all four quarters ; and there will be many cheers for the team and many a warm heart for the football team of Macollege.
Whether we win or lose this last football game of the season, we shall still be proud of Macollege and her foot-ball team; and we’ll feel we have had a successful 1951 season.

Oltman, Mays Accompany Ladies’ Trio Oh Deputation
By Bryce Miller
Several more additions have been noted recently in the car family on Macollege campus. Al-though possibly already of age, the cars are welcome additions. They provide two more noises to which to awaken in the middle of the night.
The corporation of Hummer, Nicholson, and Kennedy started things off several weeks ago when they pooled their mental resources and pawned their physical resources and started toward Salina.
Upon arriving there, they proceeded to the nearest home for aged cars. After much bickering with the caretaker a purchase was made.
After test driving the vehicle for two weeks the corporation has announced that it seems nearly normal in all respects. It has flat tires on occasion and even uses oil.
Another recent proud owner is the humanitarian Don West. He saved a faithful old car from the fate of scrap Iron. Although possessing no muffler or starter, it actually purrs like a kitten (a dead one that is).
Don has announced that the West and West Taxi Co. will soon be operating. Fares will be 10 cents for a ride to town and 25 cents if the car makes it all the way.
Almost at any time of the day or night Don may be seen.
Funeral services for Elizabeth B. "Aunt Tibbie" Albright were held Sunday, Nov. 11. at 3 p. m. at the Ivester Iowa, Church of the Brethren.
"Aunt Tibbie” was born Elizabeth B. Albright on April 19. 1862, in Illinois, the daughter of Jacob and Barbara Albright. The family moved to Iowa, but later, while in Chicago, Miss Albright opened her heart to a homeless child, who became Webster Albright, an adopted son.
She was always generous in church and worldwide charity, and never ceased to help others.
Her home, the past few years, had been with her sister, Mae, who is housemother of the College Annex, at 1422 E. Euclid. It was here that she died on Friday, Nov. 9, 1951.

To keep up with things here at Macollege, the group had definite study periods while they were riding. They said it WANs worthwhile.
Most of the time, the weather was cold, and they wore winter coats, although they did manage one picnic.
Evidently. they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. In spite of the fact that Marllee’s relatives were always catching up with her.
The members of the Ladles' Trio, their accompanist, and chauffeur. arrived home Oct. 29 from the annual ladies’ trio tour.
Anita Rogers, Donna Wagoner, Marilee Grove, Berwyn Oltman, and Bob Mays were the participants in this ten-day, three thousand, one hundred eighty-five mile trip.
In spite of the rigorous schedule, it was not all seriousness. They visited many interesting places, including Duluth, Minn., from where they could see Lake Superior; the Badlands of the Dakotas; the high school in Cando, North Dakota, from which Pat Royer and Virgil Teubner graduated, and where the students want-ed to keep Berwyn at the piano all evening to enjoy his Boogie-Woogie; and the Black Hills.
These Interested students of Macollege wanted to see the faces on Mt. Rushmore. So in spite rff darkness, fog. and snow, they climbed to the top. They had the wonderful experience of enjoying nothing. They couldn't see a thing.
Another of their side trips took them into Canada for about an hour. They crossed the border at

Mac Owns Freak
McPherson College Campus is now the home of a World-Famous Freak Cow. This animal came to being in Elementary School Art Class over the weekend. There is none other like her as she is a cow that has no ears, no nose, no Face, only one-half of a tail and only one teat.
The Art Class was working paper maiche projects last week, and Elsie Kindley chose to make a cow. When Elsie completed the cow, it had everything that normal cows have, but Elsie used flour paste to stick the cow together.
Frantz Hall mice are very fond of flour paste, and when Elsie found her cow Monday morning, she discovered that the mice had found her cow first. Anyway, the cow is quite abnormal now, and needs some plastic sorter.

A letter has been received from Miss Mitsue Ueda of Japan requesting American participation in the Japan Correspondence Club, Miss Euda writes: "We young
people of Japan are very repentant of the causeless war, and have borne sufferings and exerted all efforts to rebuild Japan on the de-vastated land. We learn a great deal from, democracy, the spirit of which we want to spread all over Japan to make her a peaceful and democratic country.
"We boys and girls 14 age-23 age numbering about 2,000, consider it the best and the shortest way for learning democracy that we correspond with American college students and have formed a group for the purpose.
"We hope you will kindly forward our wish to the students of your college, so that we can receive letters from American boys and girls who are willing to correspond with Japanese students.
"Please write about sex, hobbies, desires, and so on of an individual, or send us the list of the students who want to correspond with us.
"We shall never fail to answer.’’
The address is Japan Correspondence Club, 260, Oka-Shin-machi, Hirakata-City (Osaka), Japan.
Professor Raymond Flory has further information for students who are interested in writing to Japanese students.

McPherson Bulldogs fairly ground the rivals of old, the "Terrible Swedes" of Bethany, into the green turf of Bethany stadium last Friday night when they ran rough-shod over the determined ball club of Coach Hahn 34-21.
The sparkling running of Gene Smith, Bob Kerr, and the sensational open field running of Eddie Ball, who hit pay dirt three times during the evening, and a typical Bulldog pass defense plus a tough hard-hitting defensive line made up a combination that spelled victory for Coach Woodard's Bulldogs.
This win gave the Bulldogs undisputed second place in the Kansas Conference.
The Swedes drew first blood early in the first period when they rolled to a TD through a McPherson defensive team that was a little frustrated by the Swede offensive attack that the old master of tricks Coach Hahn of Bethany had cooked up for the Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs did not gain the upper hand till the second period with Wayne Blickenstaff doing a great job at calling signals. The Bulldogs rumbled to two quick touchdowns behind the wheeling of Smith. Kerr, and Ball. The Bulldogs led at half-time 13-7.
McPherson tallied twice more in the third act of the football drama, and Bethany once.
The teams broke even in the final period with both ball clubs scoring once.
Tommy O'Dell, the Jack-in-the-box from Kansas City, Kans., played his best defensive game this season for McPherson. Tommy intercepted three Bethany passes and returned the ball twice for long gains, once for 57 yards, and had be not been slowed down so much by a potential Bethany tackler he would have made the safety in the end zone.
The most sensational run of the game was made by Eddie Ball early in the third period when he took the ball from a hand-off from Wayne Blickenstaff and rounded right end and rambled 69 yards
without a man touching him.
center, and Dave Metzler, right end, made key blocks.
Duane Jamison played a great game at defensive end. Duane has not played too much ball all season. but in the last couple of weeks has shown great improvement.
Hitting pay dirt for the Canines were Co-Captain Bob Kerr, who went over on a line plunge, and Wayne Blickenstaff who scored on a quarterback sneak in the second period.
Bob. Kerr, the Oklahoma boy, played his usual good game although it was over-shadowed by the great running of Eddie Ball. Kerr reeled off many long gains and did a great job of running interference for the ball carriers.
Co-Captain Chuck Petefish played another great game at safety for the Canines. Chuck broke up a couple of passes thrown by Carlson that were labeled as touchdowns had they been completed.
Dwight McSpadden made up the third man of the defensive trio hat played a great game in the backfield the other night as Dwight was responsible for many of the tackles that were made.
The names of Metzler and Stevens spelled trouble for the op-ponents that had to play across from them in the line. Stevens, the right offensive tackle, and Metzler, the red-head who has held down the right terminal po-sition for the Bulldogs this sea-son, played a good and rough game and were many times the differ-
ence between having a play bog down or having it go for extra yards. These two boys played their last conference game at Bethany, and they played well and deserve a salute of "well done."
The two-platoon football system may be on the way out. However, it may be several years before it is officially killed by the rules committee; but some regulation changes, aimed at curtailing wholesale substitutions, likely will be written into the books at the next meeting of the law-making body.
Why? The number of coaches who dislike it is steadily increasing.
Already many coaches use it only in self defense, not because they like it.
Coach Dale Ward, of Colorado, says the platoon system is responsible for the rash of football injuries this season.
Moon Mullins, K-State Athletic director, said recently, "I could talk all night on things I don’t like about the two-platoon system and if football were not the great game it is, the two-platoon system would kill it.”
Many high schools employing young coaches have discovered their man to be a good defensive coach or perhaps a good tutor on offense, but not the needed combination of both in one man.
Of all charges leveled at the two-platoon system, probably that of Coach Ward Is the strongest, if be can prove it.
"Boys under the platoon system are fresher and they hit harder than they used to.” Ward explained. "When I played we were all in there for 60 minutes
and we all wore out together.” Ward does not subscribe to the theory that a fresh player, used only on offense or defense is less susceptible to injury than a tired player. The many injuries reported this year seem to substantiate his argument.
Eleven Teams Report For Table Tennis Tourney
An Intramural table tennis tournament has been established. As of Monday night, 11 teams had been reported to Dick Wareham. The first set was played Monday evening, and the schedules will be posted on the bulletin board in the gym.
A set will consist of the best in five games. All teams must be in order by Friday of the preceding week, and the games must be played in that order for the following week.
The number one players will compete against other number ones, and all results should be reported to L. Blickenstaff, C. Pete-fish, or Dick Wareham.
All those who profess to be ping pong artists are urged by the committee to bring their own equipment and show their stuff.
The trouble with a fellow who thinks he can read women like a book is that he is always for-getting his place.
Features of the game included the fact that each team lost at least two games with the exception of Sharpe (9-1), and each team won at least two games, except Walker (1-9).
The Faculty defeated Sharpe's team for the only loss to the champions. The biggest upset was the game in which Schmitt (1-5) beat Mesker (6-1). Several of the matches were hard fought affairs which lasted more than an hour.
Probably one of the most successful features of the season was the fact that 220 students participated. During the past six weeks 24 teams played an aggregate total of 241 games.
Many persons were initiated into playing volleyball, and new skills were developed. Also this form of social outlet made many new friends, Mr. J. Richard Wareham was in charge of the tournament.
