Pondering With The President

Why Are The Arches In The Catacombs?

Dr. D. W. Bittinger

Not so long ago Irene and I walked in the catacombs which border the Appian Way outside Rome. We entered them reverently. As we desended the winding stairs and passageways which were lighted by candles stuck in small openings in the rocks, nine teen hundred years of time rolled backward.

It seemed to us that from deep underground we could hear the voices of Christians singing. Their tones seemed confident; they seemed to sing victory even though death might be waiting near at hand. We thought we could hear the testimony of Peter. Paul, Barnabas, a thousand others, coming to us out of the darkness. Some of these names could still be read on the rocks where they had been written with candle smoke, centuries ago. There were eight miles of these catacombs. Here Christians who had died for their faith were buried. Every grave of a Christian who had died a martyr was marked by an arch, either carved in the rock or bricked up above the grave.

There were 120,000 such arches!

We came out of the catacombs to look with in-quiring eyes at each other and at our fellow compan-

Would we give our lives for our faith?

What was our faith? Did we have any possessive faith?

This question has haunted us since.

Are the students at McPherson College developing a faith? Can they live for it? Would they die for it? Do we have a faith which can help us to grow toward a more glorious day—ever this kingdom for which we pray, “Thy Kindom Come."

Spec To Change Editors For Next School Semester

Dennis Hubbard will be the editor-in-chief of the next issue of the Spectator, and Larry Elliot campus editor, will assume the responsibilities of managing editor. This issue of the Spec will be published on Friday after Thanksgiving vacation.

Changing Job The editorship of the Spectator changes each semester as the editor - in - chief retires and the managing editor advances to that position. The position of managing editor filled by the former campus editor and a new campus editor is chosen by the Board of Publications.

The policy of the Spectator is to allow each managing editor to be in charge of a practice issue before assuming the full responsibilities of editor-in-chief.

Actually, Dennis is now carrying-out the responsibilities of editor-in-chief for Faye Brunner who

is practice teaching. Faye has been assuming the duties of Dennis' official position of managing editor.

Editor’s Duties

Duties of the editor - in - chief are: making out the dummy copy, deciding what goes into the Spec, writing editorials, deciding on policies of the Spectator, and determining the make-tip of the paper and the size heads for each article.

Every Thursday afternoon the editor-in-chief and Mrs. Homer Brunk. Spectator advisor, spend the afternoon at the McPherson Sentinel Office setting up and proof-reading the paper.

Grab your books, from Genesis on down, and throw them into the sea But it's you who'll splash in wet revelations.

And In This Corner

Deadline Sounds Heard In Ever-Present Rush

By Faye Brunner

Have you ever listened to the sounds of workers rushing to meet deadlines? Have you ever felt the tension that mounts as you push yourself forward to the everpresent deadline?

As I write this editorial, I hear three sounds of work striving in its frantic battle to meet the deadline.

A hammer drives nails into fresh wood, bent on holding the material tightly by its sharp-tipped brothers. A play is to be given and sets must be made; the stage must come alive; a deadline must be met!

In the next room band music swells and crescendoes into feverish heights as a director manipulates the rythym, volume, and tempo by means of his hands. The group is stopped, started, pleaded with, even threatened to become polished, to become listenable, to meet a deadline.

Deadline sounds are also quiet sounds. The silent swish of papers as a teacher prepares his grades for the registrar; the nervous chewing of a pencil as a student finishes his term paper; the quickend heartbeat of a boy or girl making a decision to meet a deadline.

Church To Try New Program

The McPherson Church of the Brethren is beginning to use a Undershepherd program. In this program, the entire congregation will be divided into flocks of 6-to-12 members each, with each flock having a shepherd or flock leader.

The purpose of this program is to get people better acquainted with the other members of the

congregation and to have a closer fellowship among the members.

These flock meetings will be in the homes of members. The first one will be held Sunday night.

Stage Band To Appear On Hutchinson TV

The Macollege Stage Band is scheduled to appear on TV. Thursday. Dec. 3 at 7:25 a.m. on KTVH, Channel 12.

victory over the Bethany Swedes at Lindsborg 28-14. McPherson actually had a bigger edge in this game than the score showed.

The Bulldogs seem to agree that C. of E., Ottawa, and Panhandle were the best teams that they played against. C. of E. is voted as having the best all-around attack.

Max Grossnickle of Laurens, Iowa, and Marvin Keck of McPherson were elected co-captains of the 1959 Football team. They were elected by the football team by a vote that was taken before the homecoming game.

Max was a senior guard on the team. Although a lineman does not score, Max played a very important role with his timely blocks and his power to break through the line and make many tackles.

Marvin was a senior fullback who did a lot of ball lugging for the Bulldogs. He also did nearly all the punting, averaging 33.9 yards a kick for 28 punts.

The Bulldogs outscored and had a higher total offensive yardage than their opponents. They scored 20 TDs to 18 for their opponents and averaged 251 yards per game to 214 yards per game for their opponents.

Bryce Heinz led the team in total rushing with an average of 4 8 yards per carry. In passing, Richard Heidebrecht completed 41 of 96 passes and averaged 14.7 per pass. In pass receiving, Tom Richards caught 15 passes for 287 yards and Heinz caught 16 passes for 257 yards.

Heinz and Richards each scored 5 touchdowns for 30 points to lead the Bulldogs in scoring.

Moundridge Tournament Scheduled For Dec. 3, 5

The McPherson College Bulldogs will participate in the Ninth Annual Central Collegiate Basketball Tournament at Moundridge on the nights of Thursday, Dec. 3 and Saturday, Dec. 5. along with the other participating colleges, Bethany, Bethel, and Tabor.

The four participating colleges sponsor the tournament themselves, and play for a Challenge Trophy. This trophy must be won three years in succession for per manent possession. It is provided by the citizens of the Moundridge community.

Bethel retired the first Challenge Trophy by winning the tournament in 1954, 1955, and 1956. Presently, Bethany has a string of two wins going, by winning in 1957 and 1958.

Bethany is expected to return this year with a powerful team with hopes of retiring the trophy. The other competing colleges are set to go all out in their effort to prevent Bethany from taking home the second Challenge Trophy.

The split night arrangement of playing on Thursday and Saturday nights has met with great favor. It gives high school coa

ches and players the opportunity of playing their own games on Friday night.

Each year one of the participating colleges furnish the Official Tournament Band. This year Tabor College will provide the band. Games start at 7 30 each night. Tickets for both nights will be on sole on campus.

The officials for the tournament will be Jack Ward of Newton. and Ross Estes, football coach at McPherson High.

Admissions Director Visits High Schools

Wilbur Mullen, director of admissions, attended College Days Nov. 10-11 at the high schools in Concordia, Belleville, and Beloit.

Mr. Mullen visited prospective students in the north west area of Kansas Nov. 17. He also attended a College Day at the high school in Hoxie on that same day.

Various Connotations Gives To Thanksgiving Holiday

Mac Debaters Tie For First

As the holidays draw nigh, the Spirit of All Things Good greets you and we take time to think about the different connotations put on Thanksgiving by different groups of people.

Students First of all we shall sweep the home doorstep clean by saying that students usually associate this time as one in which they give their books a holiday, because the poor books have been so overworked in the preceding weeks.

The professors op the other hand work their minds and books overtime, while they dream up shotguns and final exams to give to the students free of cost, after the grand holiday.

dinner table.

All over town merchants sigh relief for now it is safe to advertise for the annual money grab — Christmas — if their signs are not already up, they are put up

Then there arc people to whom Thanksgiving is a day of feasting, recreation, relaxation, and family reunion.

The labor unions find this a good time to get a day's pay for resting, while the employer gives no thanks because he feels he is being robbed by his employees.


The day of rest is not true in the case of the housewife who finds plenty of activity in the kitchen preparing the traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

While the housewife is working, the local grocer is relaxing and counting the pile of greenbacks with pride. He is beaming all over because of the profit he made selling turkeys and extra food.

However, in the turkey family the happiness is not so abundant for today is funeral day in honor of their members who have gone to the great beyond — somebody’s

This is a fairly complete picture of Thanksgiving in the 20th Century, but wait a minute! Where is the unselfish giving of thanks for which this day was originally intended? Sometimes it is hard to find, being buried under all the selfishness.

Do not forget the true meaning of Thanksgiving this year and as you are in holidays give thanks to God. Giver of everything that we have.

Daughter Burn To Mac Music Professor

Miss Carol Ruth Frederick, daughter of Professor and Mrs. Donald K. Frederick, was born Nov. 14 and weighed seven pounds and 14 ounces.

The Fredericks have three other children: Denny, a sophomore at McPherson High: Susan who is in the 7th grade, and Joey who is one-year-old.

Ham, Turkey To Be Served

Ham and turkey will be the main attractions at the teacher appreciation buffet supper Tuesday, Nov. 24. The supper will be served in the church social rooms at 6:15. Mary Jo Christy has charge of the meal preparation.

Faye Brunner will act as the mistress of ceremonies. Following the program the group will divide into discussion groups to discuss the role of the supervising teacher.

This is the third year the student teachers have served an appreciation dinner for their supervising teachers. The administrators from the schools in which student teachers are located are also invited.

Several Macollege faculty members will also be attending.

Eight Macollege debaters participated in the Debate Tourney held Saturday, Nov. 14, at Kansas State University.

All of the teams won at least one or more rounds, with the teams of Kenneth Watson and Orville Neufeld, and Charlotte Erritt and Billy Mitchell winning three out of four rounds.

Other debaters who participated were Gary Ross, Dick Sitts, Sandra Walty and Lester Zook.

The squad tied for first place with Emporia State and the University of Wichita. The plaque went to the University of Wichita for first on the basis of speaker rankings.

Mrs. Mary Lou Zook and Don Hollenbeck accompanied the squad to help with judging. Prof. Hayes was very well pleased with the showing of the teams. None of the debaters had been in varsity debate before.

A total of 16 colleges and universities were represented at the tourney held at Manhattan.

The debate question was: Resolved — That Congress should be given the power to reverse decisions of the Supreme Court.

Today and tomorrow. Nov. 21 and 22. the Macollege debate team will participate in a debate tourney at the University of Wichita.

Then, the next debate tournament for the squad will be Dec.

10. 11. and 12 at Southwestern at Winfield.

Bridgewater To Have Thanksgiving Meeting

Two carloads of Macollege students are planning to attend the Brethren Student Conference at Bridgewater College in Bridgewater, Va., November 26-29. They will leave immediately following the dismissal of school for Thanksgiving vacation.

Prof. Dale Brown, a faculty leader for the conference, will accompany the group.

The conference theme is "The Gone Generation?" In preparation, the students have been reading a booklet entitled "How True Are You?"

Friday morning's worship will be led by the McPherson delegates.

Freshmen End Orientation

The freshman orientation course ended with the nine-week test Wednesday, Nov. 11. Grades will not be given until the end of the semester, however.

The course is designed to help students become acquainted with McPherson College and to help freshmen make the change from high-school to college life.

Also, it helps the students de-clop good study habits and can help personality through the books used in the course. Dean Wayne F. Geisert says that the “response to orientation has been good."

New textbooks were used in the orientation course this year.
