President Reveals Plans For Physics-Math Building Dr. Irwin J. Lubbers, Hope College president, today revealed plans for the next academic building to be built on the college campus—a $750,000 physics-mathematics building. The new building will be erected directly west of the Van Zoeren Library on Graves Place between College and Central Avenues. The third building project in the college's "Looking Ahead With Hope" $3,000,000 development campaign, the building will be similar in architecture to the million-dollar Van Zoeren Library completed last summer. The library was the first project of the campaign; the acquisition and development of 25 acres of land two blocks east of the campus for athletic purposes, the second. Actual construction date has not been determined, according to Dr. Lubbers. The new facility will be L-shaped, the east-west section of the building having three levels. The north-south portion will extend toward Graves Place on the extreme west end of the property. This part of the structure will house two lecture halls. The two sections of the building will be joined by a glass-enclosed lobby. The ground floor of the building will house a mechanical drawing room, radiation lab, dark room, lavatory facilities, storage rooms and mechanical equipment rooms. The first floor will include a receiving room, reading room, storage room, two general physics labs, one advanced physics lab, four project rooms and lavatory facilities. The second floor will have twelve faculty offices, a conference room, electronics lab, five classrooms, four smaller labs and lavatory facilities. The exterior will be designed of solar screening, light yellow brick and glass walls with stone trim. Architects are Ralph Calder and Associates of Detroit.

Hope College Anchor

OTHERS SPEAK OUT Dear Editor, The faculty chaperons in the last issue of the Anchor evaluated the students as impolite dullards. Might I suggest that the purpose of a chaperon is to keep the propriety. If the faculty does not like the job of chaperon, a fine suggestion was made in the same article that the administration hire full-time chaperons. Signed, A Student Dear Editor, How about a course in social graces 101 taught by Emily Post? Faculty members might be requested to take it also. The disrespect shown by some indicates that they could profit by it. Signed, Snubbed Dear Editor, Could it be the students do not know the social graces because actual planned social life happens so infrequently that they do not have the experience to know what to do at a party, dinner, or dance? Signed, The Big City Dear Editor, Let me say that the Anchor does not reflect the student opinion. Why doesn't the Anchor come out of the clouds and start expressing real student thought? Signed, The. Thinker Ed.—The students have an opinion? Do you know what it is?

Political Commentary




History Professor (Witnesses Segregation Problem In South by Justine Dakin Hope students, like other college students throughout the nation, are aware of the social, political and economic facets of the i n t e g r a t i o n problem in American society. However, most of us have not traveled extensively in the Deep South nor have many of us had any experience in working with efforts to desegregate. Consequently, much of our knowledge of the Negro problem in both the North and South is gained only through what we read in newspapers or national magazines. Because of Hope's relative isolation from the integration problem, it is fortunate that we have a few faculty members who are perhaps all too well acquainted with the problems of the Ameri-

can South and the transition that Southern society is experiencing. Among these faculty members, is Mi-. William Barlow of the Hope History Department, who is serving his first year on our campus. Though Mr. Barlow is a Yankee from Ohio, he spent last year as an instructor at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, teaching American History. Alabama, to date, has vigorously resisted efforts to integrate. Thus,'Mr. Barlow chose an exciting year to teach here, for this was the year of the noted FREEDOM RIDES, some of which occured in Alabama. Apathy While Hope students may be occasionally chastised for their seeming apathy about the inte-

Feature Editor News Editor

By Gerry Wolf To bring you up to date, here is a potpourri of campus news and commentary which broke during vacation. Dr. Fried, chairman of the history department, spent the Christmas holidays in Jordan in the Near East with a '61 Hope College graduate, Wa-el Karachy. This stop is part of the return trip to Hope Dr. Fried is making through the Orient. He has spent the past semester in Vienna arranging a program that will enable Hope juniors to study abroad. Dr. Fried is also the adviser to the International Relations Club. Much work is awaiting him and the organization in belatedly getting ready for the national convention which will be held here during spring vacation. Don't be surprised if more people than members of the club are button-holed to work. A member of the Ford Foundation was on campus to investigate the College for a possible grant. If was able to sift out what Hope college is really like, she realized the need and the sound investment the Foundation could make if the grant compared with a grant recently received by Grinnel College, Iowa. During the holidays, Don Mitchell, a junior, was named March of Dimes Representative for certain areas in Western Michigan including Ottawa County. The men of Kollen dorm were told by the house director before vacation to lock their valuables in the closet. During vacation the deans did not have to search far when they went on a dorm check. Valuables were found and the food service has its silverware .back. 1961 was a year to head West for some college students. A "Note from the Underground" has it that an ex-Anchor writer is furthering his education in a bookstore as a salesman on the coast. The varsity basketball team made a valiant effort against the alumni last Saturday who are locally known as the Cooks Oilers. Alumni coach and player Siedentop was intrepid and showed his prowess by scoring four points while playing a sizeable part of the game. With winter and snow upon us, the ski season has started. However, there will be a noticeable absence of an organized Hope group this year because of a ruling of the Religious Life Committee. This move will not stop the skiers or the ones who went on the trip for reasons other than skiing. With this being the Friday after the night before, and the sending of cards, cutting of trees, and buying of gifts is past, let me be the last to hope that the New Year will meet your highest expectations. It is difficult to return to studies after getting in the habit during vacation of sleeping all day and twisting all night. But as some fool once said, "All play and no work makes those doing the work angry." So return to the books we must so that we can start the educational adventure all over again in a few more weeks.

gration problem, Mr. Barlow noted that students at the University in Tuscaloosa share this apathy, but for different reasons. At Hope, general campus attitudes probably favor the Negro in his struggle to attain his civil rights. The concerned Hope student in his more noble moments might even ponder the various opportunities he may have grasped so that his voice — or the campus' voice may be heard on this issue. At the University of Alabama, Mr. Barlow said he felt the students and faculty were aware that integration would come sometime in the f u ture. However, there is no eagerness to force the issue. Mr. Barlow stated that, while most students were apathetic to actively encouraging integration, there were individuals who definitely had decided opinions on the subject and acted upon them. Such persons included a few white racial extremists but also some students who worked quietly and actively for the betterment of Negroes. The Ku Klux Klan, according to Mr. Barlow, is most active in Alabama, and he was able to observe the KKK in action. The Grand Dragon of the KKK for Alabama worked in a gas station near the university campus. During the course of the year, the Klan held their annual state conference in the city of Tuscaloosa. Mr. Barlow wryly observed that their fiery crosses are now electric in order to keep up with the times. Last year, a student Lutheran minister at the University was beaten by some Klan members because he had sponsored a group of whites and negroes at a religious meeting in Tuscaloosa. Alabama In discussing the political relations of the University of Alabama with the state government, Mr. Barlow mentioned that Alabama's segregationist governor, Patterson, has stated that, if any attempts were made to force the University to integrate, he would shut down the school immediately. However, faculty opinion at the University is that, should a shut-down be attempted by the governor, the school could meet the situation because both the students and faculty would refuse to stop classes. Such an opinion would seem to indicate that, while the campus attitudes on integration are somnolent at present, there is a latent reserve of growing opinion that would support efforts towards integration in the future. As has been seen throughout the country, American students are taking more positive roles in the fight for the civil rights of the Negro. Mr. Barlow concluded that, as such student opinion begins to be articulated in the schools and colleges of the deep South, more impetus will be given to furthering the cause of equal civil rights in these states.

Humanities Are Hope's Strong Field •

There's Still Room for Thinkers, College Head Believes By WILLIAM W. LUTZ Of Tht Detroit Newi Staff

HOLLAND, Mich., Nov. 17.—Under pressure to produce more scientists a few years ago, the nation's small liberal arts colleges were a l m o s t afraid to speak aloud about their work in the humanities. "Now," says Dr. Irwin J. Lubbers, president of Hope College," the pendulum has swung back. An educator who talks about what his school is doing in science, is riding an old horse." Dr. Lubbers is able to say, without fear of jeopardizing the nation's s c i e n t i f i c progress: "Hope is especially proud of one of its students who won a scholarship to Harvard and has moved on to Oxford to study for a doctoral degree." " *

'Decision Not In' The student is not studying the intricacies of rocket propulsion. His Oxford thesis is entitled, "The Meeting Place of Philosophy and History." "Hie decision is not yet in," Dr. Lubbers goes on, "as to who moves the world forward —the thinkers like the students of the liberal arts, or the doers, those who specialize in the professions. The answer undoubtedly is that we need both." Among its 10,000 alumni.

Hope counts a chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, the engineer who designed the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the surgeon who developed the operation used widely on "blue babies," the head of the Bureau of Standards in Washington and a vice president of the Ford Motor Co. Each got a grounding in the liberal arts at Hope. • • • Built by Dutch Hope's pride in the humanities is ingrained in its history. A building on the campus, erected in 1857, helps to tell the story. Van Vleck Hall, its plaster marked by the bumps and bruises of rising generations, was built by a group of Dutch immigrants who left the Netherlands seeking religious freedom. They settled here on Lake Macatawa, which leads into Lake Michigan, because of the resemblance to the motherland. One of the first steps was to organize the Dutch Reform Church. Another was to start a college for children of the colony, .one at" which the church also could educate its ministry. •

Longing for Freedom The s c h o o l was called "Hope" because it signified the settlers' longing for freedom. • Hope's first class of eight compares with an enrollment

Ipil y

today of 1,500. Van Vleck Hall, built six years after the school was established, is but one of 34 buildings, including 13 major ones, on the camous. Some two-thirds of the school's enrollment consistently has come from families who are members of the Reformed Church in America, an offshoot of the founding faith, which has supported the college into modem times. Many of the students come from Michigan where the church membership is less than 50,000. But large blocs come from New York and New Jersey which also felt the impact of the Dutch migrations of the 1840s. •




Must Attend Chapel The part religion plays on the campus is seen at daily chapel. Hope students must attend 70 per cent of the services to graduate. They also are required to take nine credit hours in religious subjects, mainly dealing with the Bible. Both the courses and the services are interdenominational. The first president of Hope was an ordained minister. About one-third of its 56-member board of trustees regularly are ordained ministers.

DR. IRWIN J. LUBBERS President of Hope College But Dr. Lubbers is the third president in succession who has not been in the ministry.

"The 'thinking' of the college," he says, "is not dominated by men saying 'this is what we want.' We are not working for the church but we are an arm of the church in this, one of its chosen fields." •

Austrian s c h o o l and three weeks on a study tour of West em Europe. They do not visit Holland as a rule. In a move to broaden the educational background of its students, Hope has an arrangement whereby its students may study one semester of their senior year at the American University in Washington, D.C. The course is political science. With the thriftiness of the Dutch founders, a lingering virtue of the first settlers, Hope's administrators have kept the institution financially sound. •

Church Pays Way The church has been Hope's angel. Much of the school's endowments totaling $1,750,000 come from church members or their estates. Church support helps to make up for the losses the school experiences on each youngster it educates. Tuition, board and room costs $1,400. But Dr. Lubbers figures this represents only two-thirds of the actual expense. The college's enrollment has gone up about 100 students a year over the last decade, requiring a continuing building program. Typical of the pioneer thrift, when Hope conducted a $3,000,000 capital improvement campaign, which ended last

spring, it apologized for having to do so. It never had conducted such a substantial appeal (actually a small one as colleges go) in its history.• • • Build Library The additional funds gave the college a new library and an athletic field, added substantially to the endowment fund, and provided the money to build a new physics and mathematics building.

In the previous 10 years Hope had built three new dormitories to house its increased student body, and a music hall. Although Hope's programs are American to the core, its roster of students and faculty reads like the Amsterdam telephone directory with such names as Van Baalen, Van Dyke, Kleinheksel, Rynbrandt and Sybesma. There are no dunderheads. Nearly 100 per cent of the school's premedical students normally are accepted by medical schools, n o t a b l y "choosy" about applicants. • • • . • No Fear Here In a 20-year period, recently ended, Hope ranked eighth in the nation in the percentage of its graduates winning doctorate degrees in science. So there is no fear of survival, barring atomic catastrophe, in the age of thinkers and doers ahead.

Maintains Tradition One of the purposes in founding Hope was to preserve some of the tradition of the homeland. Until World War I, the school operated a Netherlands department where the mother tongue was taught. H o p e ' s Americanization grew with the Americanization of its founders. Today, the college teaches no Dutch. The link with the motherland remains but a fond memory. Most of the students say Dutch language stopped with their gandparents. The youngsters know only a few words, usually. Of 50 foreign students on the campus, which is a treeshaded oasis in the midst of rhs city, only one is from the Netherlands. •

Students Hurry Across on Way to Classes

Two Other Schools The church, with 250,000 members in America, has built two other colleges besides Hope, its first and brightest star. The others are Central College, in Pella, la., and Northwestern, in Orange City, la., two other Dutch strongholds. The Michigan school has supplied a total of 672 ordained ministers and 170 missionaries to the church. Many merely had to step across a campus avenue to complete their .studies at the church's Western Teological Seminary. Alumni of Hope are spread throughout the faculties of the three colleges. Ten of the 14 presidents who have served the three schools were Hope graduates. Dr. Lubbers' son, Arend, is


the president of Central College.

Hope Defeats Hope

Vander Hill Sets Record In Taylor

Led by ex-Hope College greats Paul Benes, Warren Vanderhill, and Ray Ritsema the 1957-60 Alumni stopped Hope's varsity 88-80 last Saturday night in the Holland Civic Center. Benes and Vanderhill led a second half Alumni comback after the varsity had taken a 45-44 lead at halftime. Benes was the game's high scorer with 26 while Vanderhill pdded 20. The giant 6' 11" Benes and 6, 6" Ritsema had little trouble in controlling the boards, getting 35 rebounds between the two of them. Jim Vanderhill and Glenn Van Wieren led the varsity scoring with 21 each while

Hope College went down to its fourth consecutive defeat at the hands of Taylor University, 86-82 Monday night, but not before Jim "Spider" Vanderhill set a new single game scoring record of 43 points. S p i d e r hit 15 field goals and added consecutive free throws to break his own record of 40 which he had set against Hillsdale last year. The game itself was a seesaw battle in which the score was tied 13 times before Taylor broke an 80-80 deadlock with less than a minute and a half left to play on a brace of free throws. They stretched their lead to four points seconds later when Chinese freshman Billy Hwang stole the ball and sped the length of the court to score what proved to be the winning basket. Hwang led Taylor scorers with 23 points.

Once again Jim Vanderhill was the big gun in the Hope attack, hitting for 26 and 34 in the two games. Gary Nederveld added 20 in the Valparaiso game while Glenn Van Wieren was Hope's second highest scorer in Central State contest with 19.

Hope FEAT ATHLETE'S LnJi Clips Olivet by Bob Kreunen With his recent point output against Taylor University, sharp-shooting Jim Vanderhill has boosted his season's total to 253 points in nine games for a healthy 28.1 average. Jim is also the current scoring leader in the MIAA with 59 points H in two games for a 29 point average. Last season Jim was the leading scorer ii| in the conference with slightly better ^ J S y i l 1 than a 22 point average which placed || ^ • him fifteenth in the nation among small lilllll college scorers. It appears as if he will l i l easily be able to better both of these marks in the 1961-62 season. * • * * * * The thing that is the most disturbing about this year's basketball team is the unassuming manner in which they play when they do not have the ball. Once again Monday night against Taylor Hope hit well during the first half of the game, but because they were content to simply swap Taylor basket for basket, the Dutch found themselves on the short end of a 44-42 halftime score. Offensively the Dutch have rolled up impressive totals as they hit the 80 point mark in each of their last four ball games. However in each game it has been a lacklustre defensive performance that has brought about a defeat. (In the last four games Hope has given up 106, 94, 98, and 86 points, or an average of 93.5 per game.) The Dutch will have to do better than this if they expect to break their four game losing streak tomorrow night.

Although Hope has an unimpressive 3-6 overall won-loss record they are still undefeated in conference play (2-0) and could still be one of the better teams in the MIAA. By the end of next week Hope should know better how they will stack up against the other MIAA teams; for starting tomorrow night the Dutch will play four games in eight days and by next Saturday night they will have played every team in the conference once. These four crucial games include Albion here tomorrow night, Alma here next Monday night, Calvin at Grand Rapids next Wednesday night, and Kalamazoo at Kalmazoo next Saturday night. Of these four games there is little doubt that the two road encounters with Calvin and Kazoo will be the toughest as these two teams are probably the best in the league and victories over either or both of them would certainly be beneficial in team standings.


Captain Ekdal Buys added 15. The Dutch were dealt a severe blow when 6' 6" center Gary Nederveld suffered a leg injury that may keep him out of the line-up for the remainder of the semester. Officials: Norm Bennett and John Karras, both of Big Rapids.

Help Hope beat Albion Saturday night. Be there! Game time: 8 o'clock at Civic Center.

Hope College's Flying Dutchman stormed to their second straight MIAA conference win by downing Olivet College at Olivet by the score of 81-54. The Dutch surged to a 47-20 halftime lead on the strength of some fine shooting by Jim Vanderhill who had 20 points in the first half and wound up with 27. Once again Hope's front line was impressive on the backboards as they had no trouble outshining the rebounding of the Comets, with Gary Nederveld grabbing 18 rebounds, and Captain Buys 10. Nederveld was the Dutch's second highest scorer with 16, Buys added 13, and Glenn Van Wieren 11, as the Dutch placed .four men in double figures.
