Students are to pre-enroll as follows: Go to the Registrar's office and get the tentative enrollment card. Select your courses and fill out the card with the help of your counselor.

The foundation is being laid for the second floor of Mohler Hall, after which the cement will be poured and the same process repealed for the roof. Some time in December both second floor and the roof will be raised.


The process involved in raising the floors is called "slab raising." and accomplished by selling a jack on top of each column. The jack lowers a cable with a key on the end, which hooks into the collar under the floor on column. then the collar is pulled up with the floor.

Pondering With The President

Is Shortage Of Teachers To Be Met With Machines?

Dr. D. W. Bittinger

Schools and colleges now have an estimated shortage of 195,000 teachers. How shall this shortage be met?

One of the proposed methods is typically American. It is that we shall meet it by machines.

The proposed teacher-replacement machine is something like a television screen. The individual operates pushbuttons for questions and answers. If he gets the right answer this is revealed on the screen. If not, he keeps working at it until he does get the answer. The claim is made that under this "unbiased instructor” the student can complete in one hour, work which would take him eight hours in class.    

It is suggested that these machines can be used for teaching children from three or four years old to college age. The student, by this means, can learn at home.

What are the advantages of this system?

It may be cheaper.

It is conceivable that it might be faster.

It might be more “unbiased.”

But what are the disadvantages?

It eliminates the person to person relation of teacher and student.

The so-called “facts,” even scientific facts, which are taught change from decade to decade, as we get additional light on any subject, but the imprint of the great teacher upon the developing student undergirds him throughout life.

We in America undertake to do more and more by machines. We mechanize ourselves until we become machines, at least in part.

It seems to me there are some things in life which a machine can never replace:

The relation of a mother to a child.

The sense of oneness and wholeness between parents and children in a home.

The understanding, forgivng affection between a husband and a wife.

The adventure or growth relation of a teacher to a student, and a student to a teacher.

The depth relation of a person to his God.

• “End of The Affair"

You're sure to know that it's the end When your loved one says, "let's part as friends."

But friendship is a ficklething It may not last the 'morrow. So, at this point. I would suggest that you end it with a quarrel. For though your love may never end. requital is in order.

And, if there’s none, forget it friend, it isn't worth the trouble.

A junior on the Macollege cam-' pus thinks "the food at the cafeteria is OK but the line is exceptionally long.” He likes “the medium sized town, the religious emphasis on campus.” and feels “quite at home.”

These are the words of Bernard DeSa from Bombay, India. Bom a Catholic, he attended a Catholic school but met a Methodist missionary and was converted to protestantism.

Bernard DeSa was recommended to Dr. Bittinger as a student for McPherson College by a Methodist Missionary in India. He was awarded a scholarship. His trip was sponsored by the Methodist Church.

Bernard DeSa is an agricultural major. He plans to attend McPherson College three years and then transfer to Kansas State for two more years. This accomplished, he will return to India to work in an agricultural mission.

By John Dilley

Hello! Tis the Spirit of All Things Good here once again to relate a story in honor of a good friend of all peoples. This story begins some fourteen years ago.

"The time is one stroke after ‘operation destruction" and ’ole mother earth is in the process of digesting World War II, which was almost too big a bite for any world to chew. She seems to be having some indigestion and complaining.

"O-o-o-h. my aching eastland where two atomic bombs messed up my pretty grass skirt and those thousands of artillery shells, poison gas, and blood, Nourishment! Well, man calls it nourishment and he is a noble beast!

And in the eastland and west-land, I feel the sorrow of mothers who lost their sons, families who have no shelter now, then the cry of small children who have no food or clothes are heard. All this from the man's game of war.

"All is not bad, for I sense good taking place on a piece of land belonging to the U. S. A. (United Steelworkers Association) "Oh, Spirit of Good, tell them the story that now takes place on that land.

“O. K.. Mother Earth. Tis during the reign of ole Harry S., champion of the Democrats, and in the east of this fair land sprout three buildings along the East River in New York City. These are nourished with steel, cement, and glass till maturity.

"Finally the day of Oct. 24. 1945, has come and people of fifty nations take up residence to begin bickering and passing the buck, then finding solutions.

"Fourteen years have passed since that first day long ago and representatives of 85 nations are having a ball in yakety-yak-yakin back and forth in the three camps

of competition. Which are Camp of the West. Bloc Camp of Communists and Fencestraddlers.

“For the division of work eleven major departments have been created. Departments such as Assembly of Generals, Council of Social Economics. Council for Trustees, Worldly Court, and Commission from Outer Space, to name a few.

"Many questions hove found an answer behind these walls, however many more renew the supply. Problems such as 'How Can the Race Conflict Be Solved?' 'Who shall represent China?’ and 'What Shall Be Done with Berlin?’

"To these old questions have been added many, among which is the problem of 'How Can Farther Spreading of Nuclear Weapons Be Prevented and Stopped?"

"The story you have just read is fact based on fact with fiction added. You have probably guessed by now that this is the story of the United Nations, which has done much good, but still has to solve many problems.

So today, after UN week ends, join the peoples of the world in special prayers for the UN. for guidance in leading the world to brotherhood. Better yet, let them continue throughout the rest of this World Refugee Year and evermore.

Question on history test: What was the "spoil system?" One answer: When a new party came into office, all the people were kicked out and fiends put in.

Bulldogs To End Grid Season Play Tonight

Eleven Seniors End Season As Mac Invades Bethany

The McPherson College Bulldogs will end their 1959 grid season by playing the Bethany Swedes in Lindsborg tonight at 7:30.

Eleven senior lettermen will be playing their final game for McPherson and Coach Smith tonight when the Bulldogs invade Lindsborg, the home of the Bethany Swedes.

The eleven seniors who will be playing their final game are: Larry Werner, Dennis Brunner, Don Willits, Larry Schlehuber, Daryle Howell, Max Grossnickle, Leroy Hayes, Marvin Keck. Richard Heidebrecht, Bryce Heinz, and Darry Melton.

The Bulldogs will be playing a team that has a record similar to their own. Bethany has defeated Bethel and Friends and has lost to C. of E., Ottawa, and Baker. while playing to a tie with K-Wesleyan.

The Swedes are led by quarterback Larry Stoecker. Stoecker weighs 175 lbs., and does nearly all of the passing for the Swedes. Many of Stoecker's passes are caught by Bob Rahe, a

175 lb. senior end.

The Swedes are coached by Hal Collins with Dale Boss as his assistant. The last time the Swedes defeated the Bulldogs was in 1949 by a score of 75-13. The Swedes will be very intent in ending this drought of losses.

The Bulldogs came through the Ottawa game in fairly good shape. By Friday, most everyone should be ready to play and should really give the Swedes a battle.

The Swedes, who like to be called the "Terrible Swedes.” will also be playing their final game of the season. Eight of their top players are seniors and will be playing their final game.

Homecoming Attendance Largest In Years

Paul Wagoner, alumni secretary, reports that the attendance during homecoming was the largest it has been for some time. He said there was a very good attendance at both the Saturday afternoon program and at the coffee hour following the football game.

“Probably the basis for this large attendance was due to the fact that conference was being held at the same time." he said.

Clean-Up Crews Keep Mac Neat

Go On Ahead And Laugh!

A joke is a joke, but a good, hearty laugh, according to medical authorities, is one of the best health treatments available.

Laughter eases tension, releases pent-up energy, provides exercises for little used facial and chest muscles.

A deep breath gets you about 500 cubic centimeters of air. A deep laugh feeds more than 3,000 cubic centimeters of oxygen to body tissues at one gulp. Every 60 seconds of hearty laughter exposes the entire body to an extra dash of oxygen.

With meals, laughter aids digestion by forcing the liver to produce more bile. It obscures headlines, blurs budget worries, obviates a daily 100-yard dash.

So go ahead and laugh.

Times Given For Mac Clubs

Besides the regular academic curriculum, Macollege has about 16 clubs or fellowships. The meeting times of each club are listed below.

She Gets News To Hometowns

Have you often wondered how Macollege news gets in your home town papers? This year Vena Wray is sending this news to your papers. She is doing this in connection with the Public Relations Office.

She gets the names of the home town papers from one of those many cards you had to fill out at enrollment time.

Some of the items she has sent in already this year are. A Cap-pella Choir members, football players, enrollment, play cast for "The Matchmaker,” and the Homecoming Queen and attendants.

Some of the items Vena plans to send out in the immediate future are the cheerleaders, Who's Who, student teachers, foreign students. Chapel Choir members and ensembles.

Feature stories on exchange students is Vena’s dream for the future. She would send these stories to newspapers in this area.

Along with writing newsletters to your hometown papers. Vena also works nine hours each week in the college library. Her major is elementary education.

Ottawa, C Of E To Battle For ’59-’60 KCAC Title

Players Club Is First In Homecoming Floats

The Players Club won the $30.00 first place award for the 1959 homecoming decorations. Kline Hall held a $20.00 second place award, and the Home Ec. Club won the $10 third place award.

These five honorable mention winners received a $5.00 award: the Recreational Council, freshman class, W.A.A., the junior class, and the pep club.

The conference title should be decided at Ottawa tonight when Ottawa and C. of E. clash. Pick your favorite and hope they win.

Friends will be at Sterling tomorrow night for what should be a very interesting game. These teams should be evenly matched.

McPherson will be at Bethany tonight. In this game, it might be safer to throw the records and statistics away and wail until the game is over. Mac might have a slight edge looking over past scores.

Kansas Wesleyan will be at Bethel tomorrow night. Kansas Wesleyan has the edge in view of past performances.

Last week Bethany defeated Friends 13-7 at Wichita. Bethany's winning TD came with just 42 seconds left in the game when back Glen Elvins went around right end. Friends scored on a 6 yard end run.

C. of E. pounded Bethel 46-7 at Emporia last week. C. of E. passed. both long and short, and ran, both long and short, to rack up this victory. This makes 6 wins for Emporia and 6 losses for Bethel.

McPherson fell to Ottawa 19-6 at McPherson. McPherson scored on a 1 yard plunge by Heyle-brecht. Ottawa scored on a field goal, a safety, a 15 yard run by Keller, and a two yard plunge by Nider.

Baker humbled Kansas Wesleyan 40-14 in a game played at

Salina. Baker scored on picked up fumbles, intercepted passes, runs and passes. KW scored one TD on a pass and the other on a short run.

Southwestern bumped off Sterling 33-0 at Winfield lost Saturday night. The Moundbuilders started early and scored on short runs, long runs, and on a 65 yard punt return.

Macollege Men Attend Alumni Teachers Meet

Harley Stump, assistant professor of English, and Paul Wagoner. alumni secretary, attended a meeting of alumni teachers, those teachers who graduated from Macollege, in Salina at the Swedish Diner, Nov. 5.

Dean Wayne F. Geisert and Paul Wagoner attended the Teachers meeting in Wichita Nov. 6. at 12:30 p.m. in the Church of the Brethren.
