Queen Anita Crowned Amid Cheers And Applause
Sadie Hawkins' beginneth on the twenty-fifth day of Oct. in the year 1951 of our Lord. The by-laws have been laid and persecution shall fall upon those who do not comply.
They are thus stated:
1. Female purseuth male.
2. The pursuit shall commence on the twelfth and one-half hour, Thursday, Oct. 25, with the assembling of both sexes on the end of the gridiron.
3. Men hare advantage of ten paces in the starting line-up.
4. At the shot of the cannon the race is on.
5. For one hour from the above stated time, there shall be an open free-for-all at which time the pur-sued shall not enter a building or leave the premises of the campus. Any man found within the boundary of a wall within this hour can be legally caught by seizure. Failing to adhere to this regulation the pursuer has the authority to establish claim on the pursued.
From this point the chase will be continued until high noon on Friday, Oct. 20.
7. The procedure for catching a man will be hereto limited by:
a. Not over six ranbunctious females to one defenseless male —unless accompanied by a responsible faculty member.
b. The hunted is safe within the walls of all campus buildings after the hour free-for-all, as no female can chase or drag them from the above realms. The penalty is the catch becoming null and void.
c. Last, but not least, due to the severe drouth in California, no water shall be used for drowning of the opposite sex.
8. To legalize the catch, both male and female must present themselves to the license bureau located on the Arnold Hall veranda for purchase of a two-cent mar-riage license, and a twenty-five cent refreshment fee, to be presented as admittance to the grand finale Saturday night. Licenses ran be purchased at the shindig for all those uncatched and those that didn't catch. All singles pay whole sum total of twenty-five cents, so it pays to catch and be caught.

Last spring the first faculty open house was sponsored by the Social Committee. The committee reports that student and faculty reaction favored another open house this year early in the fall.
The Social Committee recommends this evening of visiting as a chance for students to see their professors in their homes with their families.
At the recommendation of the Social Committee no refreshments will be served.
Faculty homes have been listed in order of the distance front the campus. To avoid having large groups at any one home at the same time, students will be assigned the order in which they are to visit the homes an the home at which they are to begin.
The committee recommends visits of from ten to fifteen minutes in each home so that the students may visit all of the homes which will be open.
Since a few professors have previous engagements, the committee requests that students participating in the visitation get a list of homes from the SUR and follow that schedule.
Jake Sheaffer is chairman of the Social Committee. Other members are Elsie Kindler, Ina Dit-mars, Peggy Sargent, Glendon Button, Dick Warehgam, and Sarah

Macollege Is Proud
It was a thrill to see so many t out the Homecoming game last Saturday. We feel sure that there were many and varied reasons why so many attended the game and also had such a fine spirit during the whole of Homecom-ing.
Possibly the main reasons could be these:
The athletic program has been on the up-grade ever since Coach "Woody" Woodard has come tp the college. With his efficient teaching and coaching system and his superior coaching staff the whole athletic program has gone far ahead of some of our expectations.
The calibre of the teaching staff of the college has been improved much during the past few years and we feel sure this, too, has helped in the progress of Macollege.
We would not belittle the unique spirit that has caught the students and faculty alike in its grip. This spirit, termed "the family spirit" by President Bittinger and others, has done more to mould the students and faculty into a well-formed coordinated group than has all the contributing factors.
Macollege is proud of her students and faculty, her greatly improving athletic program and superior teaching faculty, and of the fine spirit with which the members of “the family" unite together in work, study, worship and play. D. T. F.
We think that the students and faculty of Macollege and others who read the Spectator ought to feel free to contribute material for the paper.
It is the delire of the Spectator staff, to have a paper the reader enjoys and feel, that he a part of that paper.
In order for you to feel a part of the paper we feel that you ought to be given the opportunity to write for the paper. We are asking you that if you agree or disagree with us. please notify us.—The Editing Staff.
A Lament On Sadie Hawkins’
To flee, or not to flee; that is the question Whether 'tis better in the chase to suffer The glares and torments of outrageous females,
Or to give in amidst a horde of chasers,
And by submitting and all? To trip; to fall;
Just once; and by a fall to say we end The back-ache and the thousand painful shocks The chased is heir to, ’tis a situation Devoutly to be wished. To trip, to fall;
To fall, perchance by fate: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that fall of fate what hags may pounce When we have lost all hope of liberty.
Must give us chills: there’s the respect That makes Sadie Hawkin’s of so great dread! -—Anonymous
(Editor's note): This is an anonymous poem published In the October 27, 1950, Issue of the Spectator.)

THE BUSINESS STAFF
Trustees Change Medical Plans
The college trustees voted to change the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Hospitalization and Medical Expense Plans of the faculty members and their families.
Previously the faculty has paid the entire amount of dues on these plans. The trustees voted to
Arlie Thiessen and Dale Birkenholz Sarah May Vancil
Betty Ann Murrey LaFaughn Hubbard Esther Ikenberry Ruth Papa Elsie Kindley Bob Fryman
pay one-fourth of the total expenses on dues of the faculty who are members or wish to become members of Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield.
Both Blue Cross and Blue Shield are National Medical Expense Plans, endorsed by hospitals and doctors. Several faculty members benefited from these plans during the last year.

Last spring several of us male students from Macollege heard about the possibility of going to Oregon to work in the pea canneries. We wrote letters to a few companies and finally decided upon one cannery which is called the Utah Canning Company. Seven of us decided to go out for the summer.
We arrived at Milton-Freewat-er, Ore., at different Intervals. Some of us rode the bus, while others "rode the thumb." The seven who arrived ready for work the first week of the canning season were Bob Bechtel, Dave Metzler, Bob Powell, Maurice Richards, Loren Frantz, Eugene Neff, and Bob Wilson.
We were shown our places of residence in which we were going to spend the nights of the canning season. They were small brick cabins in which four boys were supposed to stay. They were furnished, with bunk beds, a table, and a shelf cabinet.
When we started to work, we were not acquainted with the cannery and the warehouse. These interested all of us very much.
During the first week we called Loren Blickenstaff at his home in Nampa, Idaho, and asked him to come up. He came up and that made a total of eight boys from McPherson. We had the most fellows from any college which was represented there. Some of the other colleges represented were Pacific University, Arizona State, and Oregon State.
All of us were put on stacking crews except Eugene Neff. He worked at night in the cannery. The rest of us worked in the warehouse in the daytime. At least, we were supposed to work during the day; but after the cannery got into full swing of operation, we were there until 11 and 12 many nights although we went to work at 7 a.m.
We batched; but since we really didn't have too much time to
cook our meals, we really got tired of lunch meat and tuna fish which seemed to be very popular among us for sandwiches. When we had time, however, we would have pretty good meals. The male cooking talent which Macollege has in its midst is quite surpris-ing.
The work of the stacking crews was primarily to stack cases of peas in the warehouse. This, was pretty strenuous work, and we usually didn't stack over eight hours a day. The rest of the time we loaded and unloaded cars, moved salt, sugar, and cans, and labeled orders of peas for dealers.
The nearest town, Walla Walla, Wash., was 12 miles from Mil-lon-Freewater. They had excellent swimming pools and theatres, and we would take advantage of our spare moments by going to Walla Walla. We went to church on Sunday if we had Sunday morning off.
Household duties such as our washing and the cleaning of our cabins took part of our time, and these things usually came first before our recreation.
Our work was hard, and we worked long hours, but not everything was work. We had water fights which sometimes ended by someone's getting thrown into the cooling tank. There was a basketball goal in one of the warehouses, and the company had a couple of basketballs. Once in a while we would choose up sides and have a game.
We had the pleasure of working with some foreign boys. Several were from Hawaii. They were students at either Oregon
State or Pacific University.
Our standard drees was a pair of gym trunks, swimming suit, or something very similar, and tennis shoes. That dress afforded comfort to our feet on the cement floors, and also it was cool.
The cases of peas were piled into stacks which had as many as 10,000 cases in them. If you ask any of the boys, they will probably tell you how we stacked the peas; and they will probably add some of their personal experiences.
The weather was very agreeable. The temperature never got above 95 degrees. Even that temperature must have been rather hot for the location, because the native residents complained about how hot it was when none of us Bulldogs even noticed it.
The chigger is non-existent there. Three-fourths of the people don't know what chiggers are. Because there are practically no mosquitoes, we found it was very pleasant to be on the grass in the evenings; that is, if we had any time.

“Do you have an amphibious jeep for sale?” Dr. Hess would like to have one. At least, the all-believing Chevrolet dealer apologized for not having one when Dr. Hess asked him that question.
While travelling near Sawyer. Kansas, on the weekend of October 6 and 7, Dr. Hess found need to cross Sand Creek with his automobile. At this hour water was flowing over the bed of the particular bridge that awaited him.
Willing to test the depth of the water, Dr. Hess cautiously ventured the vehicle into the water. The water reached only to the hubcaps, and calculating that under normal conditions nothing could deter his progress, he pressed the car on across the stream.
But this bridge did not observe normal conditions. Suddenly an abrupt dip in the bridge lowered the car into the stream up to the top of the tires.
Water threatened the engine, but with the service of a few enduring cylinders the faithful 1951 Chevrolet engine chugged on to victory.
Freshmen Wonder About Green Caps
“Where are our green caps?” is what the freshmen are saying. 'Don't doff that tradition"!
In a burst of old-time school
spirit, the University of Kansas has put tl»e traditional beanie back on the heads of freshman. But it’s strictly voluntary now. The days of “murder the frosh because be forgot his bonnet” are gone, commented the University Dally Kansan.
The Union director said. ”I hope, however, the freshmen will think enough of the University of Kansas to want to wear freshman caps.”
Meanwhile, at Wayne State Teachers College, Nebraska, the beanies have been unceremoniously disposed of.
What is the case here at Macol-lege? Freshmen would like to know.
The Social Action Committee of the Church of the Brethren in McPherson had made a request to the Brethren Service Center. New Windsor. Maryland, that they be sent a Q. P. family. On Wednesday. May 30. 1951, a telegram was received saying the family had arrived and would be here on the following Friday.
A job and a house had already been provided, but as yet the house was unfurnished. After much rushing they found furniture and other necessary equipment for the house. The family arrived on Friday, June 1.
The family is from the Ukraine, and consists of four members. The father is 50 years old, and his name is Vladimir. His wife is 29, and her name is Vera. They have two boys George, age 7 and Eu-gen, age 6.
At present the boys are attending Harmony school which is about one-fourth mile east of their home.
The family speaks three different, languages: Russian, Polish, and German. They had always spoken Russan until during the Nazi regime. They escaped to Pol
and and had to learn Polish in order not to be discovered.
Since the children have started to school the family seems to be learning English better. They would like for the college students to help teach them English. In return they will help the students with their German.
Before the Czaplinski family came to the United States, Mr. Czaplinski was in charge of a dairy farm in Poland.
He was not too well acquainted with the use of modern machinery, but has been able to overcome this to a great extent.
When the family first arrived, the heat bothered them somewhat, as it was quite different from their homeland. They are very much frightened by electrical storms.
Mr. Czaplinski is employed by Rex Curtis. He is assisting in farm work.

“Bulldogs” Suffer First Loss As C. of E. Upsets Mac 30-19
“Bulldogs Will Encounter K. W. “Coyotes” Saturday
Saturday night Coach "Woody" Woodard and his fighting Bulldog squad will leave their home field and journey to Kansas Wesleyan, where they will meet the Coyotes at Martin Stadium at 8:30.
The McPherson College Homecoming fans were given a real treat Saturday night at the Macollege football stadium. An estimated 4 1/2-5 thousand persons saw a rough and tumble game between the Bulldogs and the College of Emporia Presbies. It was an exciting game, however the Presbies upset the Bulldogs 30-19.
The weather was wonderful Saturday night. The crowd was the largest ever to attend a football came in McPherson, and the Bull-dogs played the game for all they were worth.
But when the McPherson crowd filed out of the stadium after the game, the gloom in the air was heavy enough to have been cut with a knife.
The reason for all this unhappiness was that the McPherson Bull-dogs had suffered their first loss of the season by being dumped roughly by the Presbies from Em-poria 30-10.
The Bulldogs started wheeling and dealing from the opening kickoff and scored a touchdown nearly every time they came in possession of the pigskin.
The Canines kicked oft to the Presbies who moved the ball in a couple of quick plays to the McPherson 31-yard line. But then the Bulldog line dug in, and the Presbies lost the pigskin on downs on the McPherson 27-yard line.
This set the stage for the Caniness first TD. The Bulldogs ad-vanced the ball to the Emporia 48 in two first downs in a row. Herr Cannonball Ball and Gene Smith took over and carried the ball to the Presbies’ 21 and a first down.
Wayne Blickenstaff then called for a pass, which he threw to Co-Captain Bob Kerr. Kerr made a beautiful one-handed catch of the hall right on the goal line to score McPherson's first tally.
Gene Elrod attempted the kick for the extra point, but failed as the ball went wide of the uprights.
A little later in the same period Jim Naughton, a fast Presbie back, broke away from the Bulldog defensive tram for a gain of 38 yards to put the oval on the McPherson 2-yard stripe. On the next play Myers smashed over the center of the line to draw first blood for Emporia.
Automatic Beeson kicked the extra point, and Emporia went into the lead 7 to 6.
Emporia punted and Kerr, following some good interference, sidestepped his way to the Presbies’ 36; and the Bulldogs started another drive that was to net them another 6-pointer.
With Smith, Ball, and Blicken-staff lugging the ball the Bulldogs drove to the Presbies’ 29; and then Ball did broken field
running; after dodging a host of Emporia would-be tacklers, he crossed the final yard marker to score.
Elrod again attempted to kick the extra point but failed.
Going into the second period, the Bulldogs were leading 12 to 7. Then Loren Blickenstaff, who played a great defensive game for Coach Woodard, blocked an Em-poria punt; and the Bulldogs recovered on the Presbies 27.
With Dale Carpenter and Eddie Ball running, the Bulldogs advanc-ed the hall to the Emporia 13. From here Ball again scooted through the Emporia defensive to rack up his second touchdown for the evening and put his team, out in front 18 to 7.
Bob Wilson then came in to kick the extra point, and the Bulldogs led 19 to 7.
Late in the second quarter Lem Harkey, a colored freshman from Lawton, Okla., and Kenneth Long of Manhattan started to click for the Presbies. These two lads were thorns in the McPherson defensive lineup the rest of the evening.
Harkey returned a McPherson kickoff 37 yards to the Bulldogs
Backs Eddie Ball, McPherson, and Robert Kerr, Garber, Okla, scored for the Bulldogs Saturday night when the Mac team played and lost to the College of Emporia Presbies, by a score of 30-10.
47. From there quarterback Long called on Myers and Harkey to do some running, and they did not fail him. In two first downs they ad-vanced the ball to the Caninines 7-yard marker.
Harkey then took a handoff from Long and danced his way round the Bulldogs left end to core for the presbies. Beeson came into the ballgame and calmly kick-ed the extra point.
The half ended with the Canines out in front 19 to 14.
Emporia kicked off at the start of the second half, and McPherson started off with a bang by mak-ing three large gains on the round.
Then something happened to he Canines that broke every Bull-log rooter’s heart the rest of the evening. Coach Woodard’s football earn developed an acute case of fumble-itis.
The Bulldogs Just could not hang on to the ball. The bail would squirt out of the ball handler's hand as if it were a wet piece of soap. The Presbies recovered the pigskin, and after a few ground plays, Emporia punted to the McPherson 4-yard stripe. Wayne Blickenstaff, after calling for a couple of ground plays which did not bring the Bulldogs much yardage, called for a punt.
The ball club from Emporia then started a drive on ground plays with Harkey, Naughton, and Long carrying the oval. The Pres-bies moved to the Bulldogs' one-foot line and here the Canines dug in and fought for their lives and held the Emporia club to no gains for two consecutive plays.
Then Harkey fairly flew over the center of the line to put the Presbies out In front for the rest of the classic. Beeson's kick was no good.
Later In the period Emporia recovered a fumble by Kerr on the McPherson 24. Myers, Long, and Harkey pushed the ball to the 10-yard line, and from here Beeson place-kicked a field goal for three
Six Teams Still In Lead
The same six teams that held the positions last week were still ahead in the running by Monday evening, Oct. 13.
Two of the teams. Metsker (5-1) and Sheaffer (5-1), were to play later in the week, but Monday night, the four other teams were matched.
At 7:80, W. Blickenstaff (3-1) tangled horns with the Faculty team (3-1), and after three games had been played, the Blickenstaff team emerged the winner.
Then at 8:15, Petefish (6-0) met head on with Sharpe (7-9). After the smoke had cleared from this round, the Sharpe team held the edge 2-1.
Many other teams are now showing much improvement, and no one can be sure of a lead. One thing we can be sure of though, ev-eryone is having fun!

To Presbies 31-13
The Macollege B team Journeyed to Emporia last Monday evening for a football game on the College of Emporia's gridiron. The score of the game was 31 to 13.
The Emporia team sported a vicious passing attack which accounted for most of the Presbies’ scoring.

Coach Woodard's Bulldogs will be shooting for a win over the Coy-otes, who beat them 20-19 in last year's meeting between the two ball clubs.

Although the Coyotes are not as strong as they were last season they have been giving their grid opponents a great deal of trouble
Coach Forsberg has 11 letter-men around whom he has built his 1951 grid offering to the Kansas Conference.

Sports As Seen By Jay
The intra-mural volleyball teams are stronger this year than ever before. One of the main reasons for this is that the fellows have given the girls a chance to play and have found that most of them do a pretty good Job of holding down their position. Good teamwork by all has given many teams their strength.
