The Spectator 2

FRIDAY, SEPT. 21, 1961

“Stude” And “Facty”

Mac owned two mules whose names were “Stude” and “Facty.” These mules were good mules, but, oh! they were stubborn.

One day Mac put “Stude” and “Facty” out in the barnyard. He tied the mules together with a ten-foot rope.

It just so happened that there were two piles of good juicy hay on either side of “Facty” and “Stude.”

Now, when “Stude” spied one pile of hay “Facty” saw the other, of course, both mules took out for the delicious looking hay. And, of course, as good stories go, the rope was not long enough to let both mules reach the pile of hay. Instead both “Facty” and “Stude” were almost but not quite within reach of the hay.

So determined was “Facty” to get at the delicious hay that he lunged forward, but ‘Stude” apparently had the same idea, for neither mule moved. Instead each stayed in its place, not making any progress.

First “Stude” would paw the ground and lunge forward; then “Facty” would follow suit. But neither could get to the hay.

After many tiresome trials each mule stopped and looked at the other. There passed between them first a confused look then a radiant happy look, for they both knew what they were doing wrong.

So “Facty” jogged over to where “Stude” was standing and together they walked to first one pile of hay, then the other.

It took these two mules a while to learn the secret of cooperation, but “Stude” and “Facty” did learn and they did work well afterward.

Elmhurst is a city of sixteen thousand people lying fifteen miles west of Chicago.

The Three C's

Someone has thought of students as being of two natures— those that come to college for fun and those that come tor education. Of course, there is always the group which come to hunt for a mate, so says our amateur jokes-ter.

Then, too, students, especially those men who are subject to the draft, have been editorialized as being "sons of the rich.”

Let us look deeper into the purposes of why students come to college, especially a church-related college.

To realize the purposes let us ask two questions of ourselves. First, "What are we planning to receive from our years In this Christian college?" and secondly. “What are we planning to leave here at this Institution in memory of us when we leave?”

In order to best answer these questions let us consider the three C's of an education In a church related college.

Regardless of all excuses, a student emerges from a college not merely with a diploma, but with a knowledge which enables him to

Kenneth Brown begin his career in a vocation. Doubtless, the student absorbs enough background to become successful in his chosen field. Hence, the student learns a craft and thereby creates a place for himself in society.

With the healthy, clean, Christian environment surrounding the student, he cannot help but build his character to correspond with such ideals. Therefore, the student builds for himself a wholesome character which enables him to dwell within a society which today challenges the best of man.

The third C represents the college Itself and what It stands for. Christianity is the one vital emphasis and a student who lives within this environment and among other Christian students cannot help hut absorb some of its vital elements.

So, we find that which we plan to receive from a church related college a craft to enable one to earn a living, a wholesome char-acter which will help win a place for ourselves in society and lastly, a pure, clean, Christian outlook on life which will mould this life into something worthwhile.

Next on the program was a skit by the Arnold Hall girls. The skit was another Marilyn Roe production and featured the talented acting of Carole Huffman and Lou Carpenter. Kathlyn Larson narrated the script.

Joe Introduced the next number with, "Now we will hear from an old college trio." The ladles trio of last year, Marilee Grove, Donna Wagoner and Anita Rogers, sang two numbers. The first entitled "Trees" they dedicated to Claudia Jo Stump and the second to Kansas, “Come To The Fair.”

Elsa Kurtz impersonated Al Jolson singing two songs, "Rock-aby My Baby” and "I'm Sittin On Top Of The World.” Her encore was “Mammy.”

The Incidental Fee By

Gene Bechtel

Warden Gordon, out of boredom

Took the greatest of glee—

When he looked at the budget, Saw a "defeegit"

And set up the incidental fee.

Now if this fee—be necessary— we must accept it philosophically—

But if, let's hope, it’s only a Joke—

Please return any fee to me.

Bethel Graymaroons Will Meet Mac Bulldogs Here Saturday

Bethel Graymaroons will invade Macollege Saturday, Sept. 22 under the regime of a new head coach, Andrew Douglass. Game time is 8:30.

The fighting Graymaroons will be out to avenge the defeat that he Canines handed the Bethel squad last year. In the 24 times these two teams have clashed, the Bulldogs have come out victors 17 times and have bowed only seven times to the Graymaroons.

Some all-time records have been set by Macollege in McPher-son-Bethel classics. The record for nost yards from rushing was set in 1927 against Bethel with a yardage of 504.

The Bulldogs rolled to 26 first downs against Bethel in 1927. In the all-time defensive records the Bulldogs hold several against Bethel; one of these happened in 1923 when the strong Canines held the Bethel griders to no downs.

Coach Andrew Douglass will field a team this year against the Bulldogs that will he much heaver in the line than it was last year. The line will average from 185 to 190 pounds. His back-field will be light, but very speedy.

Coach Douglass has eleven let-termen around which to build his 1951 offering to the Kansas Con-erence, eight of which will be in the line-up come game time Saturday night.

Darrel Albright or Chester Flickinger will call signals. If Albright is in the quarterback slot, Flickinger will start at one of the halfback positions. Dale Goering will be the other half-back starting. Two freshmen are candidates for the fullback pos-ition. they are Lowell Ewerts, of Hillsborro and Francis Funk.

At the terminal posts will be John Dyck, a sophomore, and Mel Flickinger, a letterman. Tackle spots will be held down by Ivan Harshbarger, a letterman and Don Penner, a freshman, Kerm Wedel, a letterman from last year, is fairly certain to start at one of the guard positions.

The other starting guard will he either Floyd Batz or Clarence Duller. Gene Kaufman will get the nod to start the game at center.

One of the things that has made Coach Woodard's teams in the past so great and what will determine the success of the Bull-dogs this season is the team work that Woody stresses. He feels that when a touchdown is made or a successful pass is completed the whole team should receive credit for the accomplishment.

George Keims, the big tackle from Idaho will play a great deal of offense and defense this year. Roland Delay, who was converted from the backfield to the line this year, was rugged on defense throwing the other team for losses much of the time.

The line this year is made up of many new and inexperienced fellows, and it will take a few games before they will show the polish that the last year's team had at the end of the season.

In the backfleld Wayne Blick-enstaff and Howard Mehlinger were showing up well in field generalship and passing. These two boys should see a lot of playing time for Coach Woodard this sea-son.

On the other hand it is one of life's marvelous adventures to discover hidden within you capacities qualifying you for carrying on the constructive work of insuring lives, of enabling people to guard against the hazardous uncertainties of fat and circumstance.


No radical changes were made In the rules for the 1951 gridiron season. The freshman rule which does not affect the teams in the Kansas Conference, will be shelved until such future time when the state of the union returns to normalcy.

Emphasis will again be placed on offense. While some objections were raised to free scoring last year, the majority of students, alumni and the public favors a wide-open attack.

The only Important change this year will be the return of the fair catch. It Is back In the rule book in modified form, revised to provide that a player may make a fair catch by holding one hand above his head and waving it from side to side.

In an effort to eliminate the "quickie" play, where a team can get the Jump on opponents, the referee will this year be required to signal "ready" by mapping his arm down each time that the ball is ready for play. No player may put the ball in play until it has been declared "ready."

Besides having the large time clock Installed, the football stadium has been painted, and new arrangements have been made that the selling of tickets at the gate can be handled faster and more efficiently. The caretakers have done a good Job of taking care of the football field this summer, and Coach "Woody" Woodard's men should not have to worry about playing on a bare, hard gridiron this year.

Two Kansas Conference teams rolled into foreign grid-soil last weekend and came home with a pair of victories. Kansas Wesleyan mauled Nebraska Wesleyan to the tune of 32-13. This game labeled Coach "Wally” Forsberg Coyotes as a pretty good outfit, and a team that is going to be rough In conference play.

The Bethany Swedes swamped Sterling College 46 to 0 In a game that saw the Swedes push the Sterling team all over the field. The majority of their gains were on around plays.
