Profs Present Delayed Skits

Miss Della Lehman and Prof. Dayton Rothrock presented four short scenes from the play, "Life with Father," in assembly this morning.

These scenes had been prepared for presentation at Parents’ Night Wednesday, March 29, but the power transformer failure which threw much of the campus in darkness during the program cancelled Miss Lehman and Professor Rothrock’s appearance.

Dr. Bittinger was speaking to the parents at the time the lights went out in the Chapel, Harnly Hall, the gym, Fahnestock Hall, and Beeghly Library.

Since the rest of Sharp Hall was on a different city transform er, the parents were able to tour most of Sharp Hall and to visit with professors there.

Over 100 guests were served refreshments at Vaniman Hall, the college’s fine arts center, after they visited the different rooms of the Art Department.

The power failure was attributed to the unusually heavy load on the circuits since all the rooms of all the buildings arc not usually lighted at the same time.

Class Detects Chem Lab Fire

“I think I smell smoke!"

And it was no joke for the physical chem class the other week during class. Ed Wolf, senior, was distilling water in Dr. Wesley De-Coursey’s private lab while the others were in class session when they smelled smoke.

Yet this national pass time tries to be friendly with new talent by presenting them with a 25 to 1 chance of making the team and a 100 to 1 chance of staying on the team.

Pondering With The President ...

Over Against The Tomb


(Continued from Page Four)

Sometimes one little phrase or sentence opens the window on a deeply emotional picture.

In the description of the crucifixion and death of our Lord preceding Easter, there is one phrase which has always fascinated me.

After the description of the scenes on Calvary, concluding with the darkness and the storm which come at the time of His death and the subsequent journey of the disciples to the top of the mountain to take down the body and carry it to the tomb, there follows a description of the scaling of the tomb.

Not only was the tomb sealed, but a guard of Roman soldiers was placed around about it so that no one could approach it. After this had been done, the disciples withdrew in considerable despair and agony.

It is hard to think of a more disheartened group than they must have been. Their Leader was dead; He was sealed in the tomb. A stone was placed at its mouth; guards surrounded the stone. Any contact with Him, even to anoint His body, was henceforth impos-sible.

It is at this point that the scripture says, “But over against the tomb sat His mother and the other Mary.”

Throughout the night, they must have sat there. Hope seemed gone; remaining there seemed useless. Why should they not try to rest or sleep? Yet the scripture says that they sat “over against the tomb.”

We face discouragements also Sometimes it seems no longer worthwhile trying. Everything has gone against us. Every hope has been dashed into the ground.

The night seems endless, the darkness is unbroken by a single ray of light.

Yet if we will but wait in times like these, the darkness is often broken. The stone can be rolled away. The night can end; hope can be borne.

The darkness just before the dawn is sometimes darkest of all. It must have been that way for the mother of our Lord. Yet she sat patiently over against the tomb in the darkness.

The darkness eventually was dispelled. On Easter morning the most glorious episode in all history of time began.

It could happen that way for us.

Vote for Larry Hayes By Mgr. Noel Grove

Experience and efficiency are the two qualifications of Larry Ellsworth Hayes, candidate for treasurer of the Student Council Larry, a sophomore now at Macol-lege has had much past experience in a position of this type.

As a matter of fact, treasurer seems to be his specialty in civic duties. He has served as treasurer of the State CBYF and treasurer of a leadership training program for Eagle scouts. He was also treasurer of the local CBYF.

However, his past history of holding offices are not restricted to the position of treasurer. Besides that position, his services in other responsibilities date back into his grade school days.

As far back as the 6th grade, Larry was president of the Grade School YMCA. Later, in Junior High School, he served as President of the Student Council.

In his four years of high school, Larry’s activities were wide and varied. In sports, he was an active member of M Club. Besides this he was also a member of Mixed Chorus, band, the school paper staff, and quill and scroll, which is a national honorary journalistic fraternity.

In College, Larry’s major activities have been in the speech department, although he has also spent some time in various music groups.

His reputation as an ardent debater and orator prove his abil-ity to express himself adeptly, This as well as his past experience make him a very qualifying

candidate for the position of treasurer of the student council.

Vote for Linda Royer By Mgr. Lois Fager

With an eye for figures and the technical ability for bookkeeping. Miss Linda Royer, an alert sophomore, is running for the position of Student Body Treasurer.

Previously men have assumed this position, but we females maintain that a woman can master nearly any job as well as any member of the male sex, when so confronted.

Linda has played an active part in organizations and activities during her two years here in college. She is an English major, planning to teach upon graduating from college.

This year she is in Pep Club. She was in Band the first semester. She was also Co-chairman of the Pep Club Chili Supper and Chairman of the Pep Club supper.

During her freshman year she was a member of Pep Club, College Church Choir, and Band. She was a cheerleader and a candidate for Freshman Attendant.

While in high school, Linda participated in activities including band, choruses, dramatics, Annual staff, and paper staff.

With these qualifications and with a willing spirit, Linda Royer seeks election to the office of Treasurer of the Student Body. THE ADVICE OF ANY LAWYER WOULD BE VOTE FOR ROYER.

Urban Sociology Class Sees Famous Places In Chicago

By Shirley Rhoades

Chicago, second largest city in the country, has taken on special significance for nine members of the urban sociology class, and Dr. Kenneth C. Bechtel who spent several days there as students of city culture patterns during the last week of March.

Of high interest on the first day was a chance to view the juvenile court in session. One person com-nented. “I could have stayed there all day.”

Skid Row and an industrial mission, which feeds both spiritually and physically and rehabilitates those misfits who wander in, made an interesting Thursday night for the students.

The famous "Loop” houses many concerns of which especially three were seen by the class. The Chicago Board of Trade in which is transacted 80 per cent of the world's agricultural business was noted as a very noisy place, the bidding being done by word or sign.

The Chicago Stock Exchange is the world’s third largest, and gave the class the opportunity to see it in action. “A person can be born.

live and die in the merchandise mart", a two-block long commercial building.

Metropolitan mass communications were observed in the form of the Chicago Tribune with her huge presses.

The Chicago Planetarium, one of a few of its kind in the world, was another point of interest on the trip. The changing positions of the moon and stars are shown on the ceiling in exact proportion and movement to the actual sky.

The Hull Settlement House, most famous of its kind in the world, sponsors activities for all ages and is located in one of the slum areas.

A tour of the city was also on the agenda for the day and the group had tired feet to show for the day’s visit to the Gold Coast, the luxurious section of the city, and behind it the worst slum district in the country.

Students To Elect Council President, Treasurer

Campaign Managers List Candidates Qualifications

Vote for Anne Keim By Mgr. Joan Walters

From out of the distant expanses of Idaho comes the executive ability of Miss Anne Keim.

As an active Macollege student she has recently completed her editing duties of the 1956-57 Quadrangle proving her leadership ability. This position has enabled her to observe all areas of student life.

Having finished her job in this particular phase. Anne wishes to further her college experience and work in an even closer association with her fellow students in the position of student body president

An interest in public speaking led her to become a member of the only Women’s debate team for McPherson her frosh year displaying deep interest in the role of women in our democracy.

For three years she has been a member of the pep club. Home Economics Club, and Pi Kappa Delta, honorary debate fraternity. She is a Home Ec major with interest in teaching after graduation. She sang in the chapel choir and for two years has sung in the A Cappella choir.

As a member of the Board of Publications she has dealt with some of the problems which face the governing body.


Vote for Carl Harris By Mgr. Norris Harms

Carl Harris, the sophomore from Jennings, Louisiana, is well known by all. His friendly smile and willingness to lend a hand have been appreciated by all his associates. Those who know him best like him even better. They see in him a humble way of doing great things.

The members of the Players’ Club, the Sophomore Sunday School Class; and the entire sophomore class have displayed their extreme trust in his sincerity, honesty, and ability by electing him president of all three groups.

But his work for the college has not stopped here. He has been an active member of many campus organizations.

The debate squad, Men’s Council, MCA steering committee, Rec Council Cabinet and Chapel Choir have all seen the work which Carl does quietly, yet efficiently and to a high degree of perfection.

“Would you like to sign my petition, please?”

Students with a political bent or their campaign managers were asking this question at the first of the week. By Tuesday the petitions were all filled out and handed to Don Colberg, student body president. The campaign managers have co-operated with the Spec and have written short excerpts about their candidates. They are listed in alphabetical order with the presidential candidates first.

Vote for Duane Fike By Mgr. Mario Oltman In a closed party convention, MAC'S Party (Modern Aggressive College Students) unanimously chose Duane Fike as our candidate for McPherson Student Body President.

Duane has extensive experience in governmental positions. In high school he was class president for four years and president of the student body.

He has become a member of two fraternities. Alpha Delta and Alpha Psi Omega, and is eligible for membership of a third, Pi Kappa Delta. He has also been elected president of Alpha Delta journalistic fraternity.

Many students have observed his fine work in other activities such as Men's Council, editor of the Spectator, and president of SPEC.

His experience in the Student Council for two years qualifies him for the president position in itself, and he is the only candidate who has had any Student Council experience at all.

Duane’s ability to lead groups and his ability to meet people are both valuable assets necessary in a president.

He will not be tied down by these activities next year and will be living on campus, ready to go

to work on council business at a moment’s notice.

For an efficient, conscientious, and experienced leader for our Student Body, we could not make a better choice than Duane Fike.

She will be free from other obligations to donate time to council affairs. NOW IS THE TIME TO VOTE FOR KEIM! ! ! !

Vote for Sid Smith, Jr.

By Mgr. Ed Sink The candidates I wish to place before you are of the highest character, ability, and integrity. I feel that these two men are best qualified for the offices.

First of all, they have minds of their own, and although they will be open to all suggestions, they will make their own decisions and will not rely on what others tell them to do or say.

They hold allegiance to no clique or organization, but only to their fellow students. Those of you who are acquainted with these young men know this for a fact.

I have heard the argument for three years that all members of the M Club are members of a clique who vote only for what is good for them. This could not be further from the truth; in fact, it is a straight face lie.

Sid Smith. Jr., our candidate for president of the Student Council. is a proven leader.

He has served the past year as secretary - treasurer of the M Club. His relentless mannner and desire to do the best job he can is noticed by all who have had dealings with Sid.

His management of the M Club’s advertisement program and his handling of the huge sums of money that went along with this were real test of his ability.

He handled the financial end of this job so successfully that

the M Club is purchasing a projector and splicing machine for the college to use.

The students who attended the carnival are witnesses to Sid’s organizational ability, for he was the driving force behind it.

Those of us who belong to the M Club are well aware of how efficiently he handles the books and the attendance records. He has served the students efficiently in the past; and if you give him the chance, he will do the same in the future.

Vote for Dick Bittinger By Mgr. Ed Sink

Dick Bittinger is our candidate for treasurer of the Student Council. He is the other half of the team of Sid and Dick. His qualifications, his leadership ability, and his dynamic personality are well-known facts.

The zeal and the determination with which he tackles every job given to him are the best qualifications a candidate can have.

He has shown he can do a good job by his leadersip in MCA. for he is one of the driving forces behind this organization. Also Dick is a member of the Student Court.

Further proof of his ability is his excellent work as associate editor of the Quadrangle.

Dick has certainly proved his worth to McPherson College and will continue to do so in the fu

In scholarship he is unexcelled. A glance at the honor roll will reveal his name near or on the top. In high school he was valedictorian. and also received two state scholarships, amounting to $1400.

In one, he received the highest grade of all the high school seniors in the state on a test, and the other was a State Elks Scholarship for personality and leadership in extracurricular activities.

So we present our candidate. Carl Harris. He has a proven record, in both ability and efficiency. We of McPherson College would be depriving ourselves of leadership in a high degree if we failed to elect him treasurer of our student body.
