Coleman Donates Tape Recorder
To help students who are interested in improving their speech, a new tape recorder has been given to the McPherson College by Mr. W. C. Coleman of Wichita.
When Presidents Bittinger and Sharp from McPherson College and College of Emporia were soliciting funds for the Kansas Foundation of Private Colleges and Universities, they met Mr. Coleman and learned of his interest in helping others to improve their speech.
Mr. Coleman, after talking to Presidents Bittinger and Sharp, told them that if they would send the beads of their Speech Departments down to talk to him. he would give a tape recorder to each college.
Prof. Guy Hayes, head of the Speech Dept., went to Wichita last Tuesday to visit with Mr. Coleman and get the tape recorder.
Mr. Coleman, who is 87 years old, is especially interested in improving the public reading of scriptures. He has given over 25 tape recorders to seminaries to be used by ministerial students.
As a young man. Mr. Coleman was interested in the ministry and law. He was studying to be
lawyer, but before he finished college, finances made it neces-sary for him to quit college to work.
It was then that he invented the Coleman lamp, which became such a success that he decided to expand the business.
The Coleman Company provided lights for many mid western towns long before electricity was introduced. Coleman lamps were soon marketed on a world-wide scale and sold in areas where electricity was not available, where they arc still used.
Camp stoves and lamps made by the Coleman Co. have been used extensively by mountain climbers, and these products have gone to both the North and South poles.
The Coleman Co., is now expanding to include the manufacturing of air - conditioning systems. as well as heaters, different types of portable and stationary stoves, and the original lamps.
The tape recorder given to McPherson College by Mr. Coleman is an Eko Tape, one of the most modern tape recorders.

Skaters To Go To Lyons
Skate Club members will be skating tonight in the Lyons, Kas rink. After the skating party, aU are invited to Lila Cook's home at Lyons.
By Vilas Lakhite I hope that everyone knows that Mickey Mantle won the triple crown in batting. What people don’t know is that Ted Williams came In a close second to the "Mick” in batting average, and that A1 Kaline was close behind in RBI's.
Mickey has hit 8 home runs in his World Series career. This puts him only 7 behind the Bambino. Mickey is quite young and may have a few more World Series to play in thus helping him to catch up with the Babe.
Don Larsen pitched a sensational no hit, no run, “no nothing" game Monday, thus overshadowing Sal Maglie's brilliant five hitter. I am sure those who missed the phenomenal game will hear about it for a long time.
The game was tensed up by a brilliant fielding play by Mickey Mantle, which overshadowed Duke Snider’s unbelievable diving catch.
Larsen threw only 97 pitches in retiring 27 batters in a row. He was ahead of the baiters most of the time.
Olympics Near As the time for the Olympic Games nears, the tension mounts to an almost unbearable stage for the competitors and fans. The favorite is the United States, but bitter competition is expected from the Soviet Union.
Although no scoring system is authorized by the Olympians, the unofficial scoring system is 10 points for first place, 5 points for second, four for third, etc.
Actually, there is no winning country recognized by anyone but the newspapers.
Many stars are on our team this year. Short Charles Dumas (8' 1 1/2") with his sensational performances has acquired the honor of holding the World Record by jumping 7 feet. 1/2 inch during the Olympic trials.
This feat overshadowed the performance by Midget Phil Reaves (5’ 8 1/2") with a spectacular leap of 6 feet. 8 1/2 inches. These two may be the shortest high jumpers in the Olympics.
Many people think of tennis as a "sissy’s” game, but those that have played It think otherwise. Great training and practice leads to the best performances. One feels quite "pooped out” after one or two matches in this sport.
It is as colorful and tense as any other sport.
The Bulldogs showed their fans that they can have a powerful football organization when they defeated Baker University last Friday night by a score of 27-13. The Canine conference record now stands at 2-0.
The Baker Wildcats, who were sporting some 20 returning letter-men. were simply no match for the ground attack displayed by McPherson. Touchdowns for Mac were made in each of the four quarters.
The first score was made in a 78 yard run by quarterback Kenny Stucky. The Bulldogs had been precariously holding Baker on the one-yard line before the score was made.
In the second quarter, after a quick kick by Baker, McPherson took over on its own 20 yard line. A thrilling run around end by George Casebeer put the ball on the Baker 43. Then Baker recovered a fumble on the 25 yard line.
McPherson gained possession soon afterwards when Dick Keim intercepted a pass and returned the ball to the Baker 25. After a couple of plays. Earl Guiot smashed 12 yards and then two more to put the ball on the one yard line. Richard Heidebrecht went over for the TD and this time Rolf's extra point attempt was good.
Baker scored its first touchdown early in the third period when they recovered a fumble on their own 35 yard line. They drove to the McPherson 31 and then a 15 yard holding penalty against
Mac pul them in close enough for Tom Kolacay to plunge over for the TD. Extra point attempt was good.
With a score of 13-7, McPherson was forced to punt on their fourth down. However, after going 35 yards, the ball touched a Baker player, and McPherson end. Ed Delk fell on it to gain possession for the Bulldogs.
After one play. Widrig went around left end for 17 yards and Mac's third touchdown. Rolfs put the ball between the goalposts for the extra point.
McPherson's passing attack did not succeed once in 5 attempts, but their ground gome was good. Baker completed seven passes in 18 attempts to McPherson’s 0-5. However in net yards gained rushing. McPherson had 358 to the oppositions 200.
Baker’s second TD was made against McPherson's reserve players in the final minutes of the game.

Seventeen-year-old Ruth Barcelo, daughter of Puerto Rican House of Representatives member, Jose Barcelo, is enrolled as a freshman at Macollege this year.
Ruth, whose friendly nature is frequently emphasized by her winking one dark eye, is majoring in home economics and plans a teaching career.
White, Snyder Mr. and Mrs. Don White of Des Moines, la., announce the eagage-ment of their daughter. Janet, to Eugene Snyder of York N. D-Janet, who is now working in McPherson. was a Mac student last year. Gene is a junior this year.
The couple will be married
Nov. 3 in Des Moines. Ia.
Rath, one of six Puerto Ricans on the McPherson College campus this year arrived in the United States by plane on Aug. 8.
Kansas weather and American food are two things which seem most different to this slender, dark - haired teenager.
"I don’t really miss any food.” Ruth states, as she explains that she likes to eat American food better than Puerto Rican.
"We use quite a bit of American food in my home. My mother. Luz Maria Lopez, made the American dishes; I never did. She made mostly casserole dishes and salads, learning from the American diplomats, exchange teachers and students whom my father would bring to our home.”
Ruth is one of the middle members of a family of eight and is the first member of her family to study in the States. Her older sister did live for a time in New York.
In order to finish her high school course in two years instead of the customary three. Ruth took summer sessions at Ponce. Puerto Rico. She received her degree on Aug. 3. just one month before she enrolled at McPherson College.
She is now a member of the McPherson College Home Economics Club.
During high school Ruth was active in Future Homemakers of America, serving as club treasurer and vice president, earning her junior homemaker degree, and attending state FHA convention in San Juan as a delegate.
Ruth, whose hobbies include, collecting photos of all her friends and playing ping pong, likes both cooking and sewing.
One of her home tasks was helping her mother operate the telephone switchboard which was located in the Barcelo home. In Ruth’s hometown of 10.000 popu lation there were 75 telephones.
Although she has studied English for 11 years and it is spoken in her home when Americans are guests, she still has some difficulty with the language. Ruth enjoys a rapid fire session of Span ish now and then with the other Spanish - speaking students on McPherson College.
Ruth’s plans for studying in the United States took definite form a year ago this past summer when Dr. D. W. Bittinger, president of McPherson College, visited in the Barcelo home in Atjuntas, Puerto Rico.
Initial plans for Ruth's education in ‘the states had been started prior to that through her father's meeting in the States with Dr. Harold Rowe, of the Brethren Service Commission sponsored by the Church of the Brethren.
However. Ruth’s first impres
sions of McPherson College were not gained from either Dr. Bittinger or Dr. Rowe, but from students of McPherson College. Students from Macollege conducted summer work project under sponsorship of the Brethren Service Commission and gave the Barcelo family the first news of McPherson College.
Members of the Barcelo family visited often at Castaner. Puerto Rico during the two summers that Macollege students constructed a road to the top of Castaner hill where a roadhouse was converted into a church and a school.
This aquaintance began the chain of events which have allowed Ruth to attend McPherson College.

Bethel was founded on the idea that the patients should have something to do so that their minds would not dwell on their illnesses. Epileptics arc not allowed to attend a normal school, so here they are given an education and trained in various trades.
First I was in the house Beth-saida, which is for girls from 10-16,
For the first several days I went to school with them to learn more German. This greatly amused them that someone as big as I should go to school with them.
Annual Conference was Aug. 20-26 and was really a spiritual uplift. Almost all the volunteers and the exchange students were there.
The conference theme was 'Toward a Transformed Tomorrow” and was concerned with the future of Brethren Service and with our futures.
I returned home on Monday, and I have just begun my work here in Mara. Mara is the first house to which the patients come for examination and observation, before they are transferred to the proper house.
As the school year begins, may I wish each of you a successful and happy year. I think often of McPherson College and of you.
I eagerly look forward to the time when I will return to you and share with you my many experiences here.
May I again say a very heartfelt thanks, and God Bless you all. Sincerely,
(Editor's Note: Elsie Lucore, Macollege student, is an exchangee to Germany this year. She is under the sponsorship of Peace Group and CBYF. The following letter was written to Macollege students by Elsie.)
I will try to catch you up to where I am in brief form, but even then I think it will take volumes. First of' all I want to thank all of you for this wonderful opportunity.
I really have a wonderful place to represent and am trying my best to do so.
I left home on June 27 by bus headed for New Windsor. Md.. for a get acquainted session with other exchangees and to attend a peace conference.
However, when we arrived there our plans were upset as they had received word that because of ship trouble we would have to sail from Quebec. Canada. instead of New York.
We left for Quebec on the first of July. We left from there on the Arosa Star on July 3.
We had such things on board ship as music concerts, lectures and forums on current problems, travel tips and history on the various countries, movies, and recreation.
Arrived in Euope
We docked in Bremmerhaven at 11 pm. July 14. Esther Moh-ler and one of the former exchangees met us. We drove to Bremen that night. The next morning we attended church in one of the two Protestant Cathedrals in Europe.
On July 17, I left for Biele- feld and arrived about l p.m. Two of the students met me at the station and conducted me to the Theologische Hochschule which will be my home for the next year.
Belongs to College
I have no family, but will belong only to the college. Perhaps I should say that I have an extra large family. The students really gave me a hearty welcome and I felt right at home from the first.
Since school is out for vacation. I am at Bethel, a sort of suburb of Bielefeld in the northwestern part of Germany. It is an epileptic colony and almost a city of its own. because the patients make almost all of the materials which are used.
Bethel covers 1500 acres and cares for approximately 7000 patients. Approximately 3000 of these are epileptics and the others arc mental cases, neurotics, and

The Queen's Banquet is .next Friday night, and everyone will wont to use his best manners. Therefore, os another public service of Norris and Carl, we present to you the Harms and Harris Etiquette Guide, or Happy Eating Habits- for Hungry Heathens.
Incidentally, another spoke in the wheel of education is eating. Without this spoke the wheel will stone.
Fellows, about the first thing you need to know about the banquet is how to seat your date. When pulling the chair out from the table for her to sit. you must resist the urge to pull it on out from under her when she sits down
When reaching for something across the table, always remember to keep one foot on the floor. If something that you want is out of reach, don't ask for it. since that will disturb the others at the table. Simply grab hold of the tablecloth and pull until the desired object is within reach.
When you sit down, you will probably find an array of four or more forks staring blankly at you. Of course you cannot imagine what to do with all of them.
The simplest way out of this di-lemna is to slip three of the forks in your vest pocket, and use the remaining one for everything. (Except scraping gravy off your tic and eating peas, for which you may use your knife.)
Should you inadvertently spill water on the girl sitting next to you, don't get shook. The waitress will soon bring you more

This year renewed effort is bang made to keep the many necessary meetings connected with college life from cutting too deeply into our evenings, thus making it hard for us to find time to study.
The pressure to establish more clearly certain hours which may be called study hours, comes not from faculty alone, but also from students.
We are pleased with the cooperative way in which the students have entered into the undertaking to schedule their meetings before the hour of eight o’clock so that after eight o'clock on Monday through Thursday, there might be more time definitely set aside for study.
Of course, faculty and students, alike, realize that setting aside hours for study does not mean that study will be done. It does however, clear the trackage and make it easier for study to be done.
If we all cooperate, I believe we can get our many meetings finished before eight o'clock on most evenings. If there are times when it is necessary to break over and have meetings carry beyond that, a committee has been established which can give the necessary permissions.
It is our sincere hope that all students and all faculty will cooperate in trying to keep these evening hours open.
We all want to make good grades. There are even mercen-ary reasons for good grades. It is important to have a good transcript when you apply for a job.
It is also important to have a good transcript when you go on toward graduate school or professional school. If such a transcript is to be acquired, we must find time for study.
Moreover, if we have our lessons reasonably well taken care of so that we feel we arc doing a creditable piece of work, somewhere near what we arc able to do. then we can enjoy our leisure hours more.
Let us make this the best year

Freshmen, do you feel squeamish when you walk into Mrs. Brunk's English 3 class fifteen minutes late?
Do you feel embarrassed when she stops the discussion until you have taken your seat? We have news for you.
Last Saturday at the journalism workshop at Raker University, the whole group was in a general session listening to a guest speaker. The meeting had been going on for a half hour, when the door to the room opened and Mrs, Brunk cautiously entered.
The speaker stopped his speech to comment. "A dillar, a dollar, a ten o'clock scholar. What made you come so soon?"
And all Mrs. Brunk could do was to creep into a seat in the front row. knowing ail the while that the eyes of a dozen Macol-lege students were on her.
