current study of several subjects stimulates mental activity. The vocational emphasis is fatal t6 a liberal education. Character training is a fundamental part of true education, and education in any field must have for its central aim the development of the whole personality. Education must be flexible and cannot be bound by any fixed system or set of rules. The teacher should so frame his questions as to teach the pupil to think. Hard work is an essential part of education, and mental laziness in the child should not be permitted. There is no fear that the boys will .ind their work too much of a strain. The itudy of language has an important place in education. Thorough training is necessary to uhe best success. And finally, the supremely essential factor in education, above all rules xnd systems, is the ability, character, and .emper of the teachers, for they are as parquets mentium (the parents of the mind).

Fair Play A Christian college — what does it mean? Does this title stand only for a school which is supported by some Christian c h u i c h . Does it mean that it is a college where Bible is taught and students attend chapel? Or does it mean much more — that the students themselves daily strive to uphold the piinciples of Christianity and guide their lives by them. We all know that Hope College lias long stood for the last definition and it should be our highest aim to remain true to that ideal. How should this aim affect our daily lives? Perhaps we could sum it all up in two words — "fair play." At a basketball game we bitterly denounce a player who is a poor sport and are proud of our own teams when they play hard and clean. But now let us carry that poor sportsmanship to the classroom where a student writes an entire examination with his notebook open or a little 3 x 5 card in his pocket. That student we merely call "clever" and smile because he is "putting one over on the teacher." However, when we look more closely tit the student in question, we discover that he is not hurting his professor. He is hurting himself and he is hurting us! By raising his mark through cheating he may be lowering the grades of all those who are doing their work honestly and fairly. After ten or twenty years, who will remember whether he received a C or a D? What will be important is that this student began to develop the habit of cheating, and once developed, such a habit is hard to overcome. With final exams just around the corner, we will be even more strongly faced with the temptation to copy "just a little." But remember— if we wish to become honest and respectable men and women in the future, we must continually practice "fair play" now. D.B.S.

Or Shriveled Souls Out of the dim past, come some of the most applicable thoughts on education we've seen in a long time. They were composed in the first century A.D., but are as relevant today as they were then. The author is Quintilian and the thoughts appear in his book. Education of the Orator, a translation of which is in our library. "The early education of the child is of supreme importance. Mental work should be first presented to the child a s play. The best literature should be used in education, even if the child does not appreciate it at first. Short cuts in education are undesirable. Con-

3ducation that "sees red" when religion is mentioned isn't concerned with the whole personality. An education that makes superhuman effort to put "God in his place isn't concerned. Any system that denies the religious nature of man is not only ungodly but also unscientific. As was said at the inauguration of Eisenhower at Columbia by a prominent educator. "Ike doesn't know a thing about education. But then who does?" Education today is like somebody with no place to go and no way to get there. Let's put God back at the helm and steer for the redemption of man! "Hard work is an essential part of education Would that we could get that before the eyes of some of our left wing progressive 2ducators! Says Paul Mallon in his book. The Ease Era, "Tests are made out by the teachers nowadays which can hardly do oth3rwise than develop a nation of graduated half-wits." Or. again. "A Philadelphia psychiatrist who studied 19.000 juvenile court cases there, found just one general causo— Mack of sense of responsibility for behavior. He sees only one cure — discipline." Anything worthwhile in life demands hard work and in education there is no exception. Finally, teachers are described as the parents of the mind. Something we've been wanting to get at for a long time. Teachers are influential and the only teachers eligible to rule any mind are Christian ones. We're not speaking of Christians by confession but by profession. We're not pleading for neutrality in the class room (there is no such thing) but we want a positive Christian testimony. The educational system needs teachers vitally concerned over the Christian gospel. As T. S. Eliot says in the Four Quartettes: "The only hope or else despair Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre — To be redeemed from fire by fire. We only live, only suspire Consumed by either fire or fire." "Faith, where it is genuine Christian faith, is a passion." says Dr. McCartney in Theology Today. "It is no cold conventional acceptance of inherited beliefs — it is a passionate commitment of life — to Jesus Christ — to give one's self in joyous abandon to Him as one's Saviour from sin and the Lord of one's life. What a deathless passion of devotion it can kindle!" Back to that conviction, teachers, or shriveled souls shall be your harvest! -o-

Once again we enter a new year at Hope, a f t e r spending a vacation of two weeks which already seems as if it never took place. I suppose we are all too guilty of leaving the "books" alone and enjoying ourselves to the utmost. Now f o r a pleasant thought we face exams but as Mason said to Dixon—"This is where I'll draw the line!" o I met Dr. Zslros a few days ago and during our course of conversa;ion he commented on one of his first observations upon coming to this country. — "When I first came to New York I couldn't understand why so many American people were talking to themselves." "Oh is that so, gee! I never noticed that before," I said. "Well. I really thought that was 30 until I suddenly found out — they were only chewing g u m ! "

impulses, he will succeed in eliminating much shrillness and violence from his life. Courtesy and manners have more meaning than the superficial aspect of ceremonial procedure would indicate. Codes of manners and conduct are founded upon the dignity and order inherent in human nature. Courtesy, if it is to be of more than trifling use, goes far beyond the mere mechanical rules of procedure or the equally automatic precepts of conventional behavior. But the detailed rules are an important lubricant for the friction of human relationships. There would be fewer divorces and fewer dead husbands if ugly words and hasty, ugly deeds had not prefaced the final blow. Good manners and courtesy are an asset to any man or woman and an important aspect of a cultured society, for they are deeply concerned with every phase of ethical impulse or judgment and with every choice or expression of the individual.

Pragmatically we are justified in condemning these men. In pagan times man savagely and brutally wrested his desires from other men, rarely sparing the enemy. Later c i v i l i z a t i o n s adopted feelings of respect toward enemies who fought valiantly, and since the toll of battle was often small, and war one glorious game, they could afford to be magnanimous in their treatment of captive leaders.

Today, however, weapons are so destructive and widespread in their effects, so hideous in results that chivalry through leniency in treatment is a luxury in which we cannot afford to indulge. For such socalled chivalry can only encourage ambitious Unless an individual is a hermit and comes rulers who see they have nothing to lose in contact with no other human being, social personally and the whole world to gain by conduct is inevitable.

Hope ranks eighth among American educational institutions in the number of successful candidates for the Ph.D. in sciences per thousand students, according to a table taken f r o m the Steelman report "Manpower for Research." Hope g r a d u a t e s who received Ph.D. de grees during 193G to 1945 totalec thirty-five. Student population for 1939-40 was listed at 525. Kala mazoo college ranked third with t h i r t y - f o u r degrees compared with a population of 384. Since 1912 approximately 200 students m a j o r i n g in chemistry have been graduated f r o m Hope with the A.B. degree and have entered the profession of chemistry either as teachers or in industry. About t h i r t y - t h r e e per cent of these have earned the Ph.D. while ^"mrether t h i r t y - t h r e e per cent concluded t h e i r g r a d u a t e study a f t e r receiving t h e M.S. degree. In addition some of the remainder have earned advanced degrees in other fields such as physics, medicine, education, etc. Since the incorporation of the college in 1866, approximately 225 g r a d u a t e s have earned M.S. degrees. Of 188 g r a d u a t e s in chemistry not now engaged in g r a d u a t e study, twelve are high school teachers, t h i r t y - t h r e e a r e college or university teachers, and t h e remainder are engaged in research or other f o r m s of industrial or gove r n m e n t a l activities.

Hope Cagers Meet Albion, M I A A Double, Saturday The Hope Dutchmen wind up a busy MIAA week Saturday night when they face Albion at Albion. Hope has shown a liking for large floors this year and are hoping that Albion's spacious court will prove no exception. Since t h e war Hope and Albion have dominated the MIAA. In three years each school has had a championship, a co-championship, and a second place. During those t h r e e years each team lost only six conference games. However Hope had the pleasure of administering f o u r of Albion defeats. Last year the t e a m s split with the home team winning in each case. The Britons won at Albion 73-62 in a game which saw two g r e a t guards, Mulder and Black, score 21 points each. Two weeks later Albion invaded Holland f o r one of the g r e a t e s t games ever played in the Holland Armory. Hope finally pulled away and won 85-71. Four players on each team scored over 11 points. Albion has lost two all-conference men f r o m last year's championship squad. They were center Lou Moon and f o r w a r d J e r r y Edwards. All-MIAA guard Lou Black heads Albion's letter men on this year's team. Forward Allen and guard Hornbrook were also outstanding on last year's outfit. In their conference opener this year Albion trounced Adrian 86-50 The following week they took i 62-52 defeat a t Alma. They played at Kalamazoo earlier this week.

Hope Edges Michigan Normal

Scoring almost a t will, t h e Hope College basketball team started the 1949 version of the c u r r e n t season with a 73-42 victory over Percy Jones Hospital a t Battle Creek last Monday. Ten men figured in t h e scoring as the Dutch completely overpowered the a r m y boys. A f t e r a close first q u a r t e r , Hope opened up and jumped the score to 40-20 at halftime. From t h e n on they had no trouble. Percy Jones played without the services of J e r r y Scott, their standout g u a r d who scored 20 points in the Holland Armory. However another s t a r was blooming in the person of Collins, t h e Battle Creek center. He led both t e a m s in scoring with 15 while Buter and Vande Wege scored 12 each for Hope.

They certainly looked sharper than against Kazoo. The T E A M that is.


This week and next ought to tell the story in the MIAA. We played



51-50 In Non-League Thriller

here and Hillsdale here. Four important games in twelve days. (Preexam days they tell me.) About all we can say is "Good Luck," I guess.



All the other conference teams are having a rough grind these two In a thrill-packed overtime batWhere the Name is a Reality tle, Hope dropped its first home veeks too. Frankly the MIAA basketball race looks just as close as game to the Kalamazoo Hornets that in football. Adrian should be able to fill Albion's football role GOOD FOOD 46-44. It was the first loss to unless they show some marked improvement. They have the s a m e team Kazoo on the Armory floor since vhich continually gave teams trouble last year but haven't been able SERVICE the war and Hope's first home loss o find themselves. since J a n u a r y 1947 when Western and No team is going to go through the basketball season unbeaten an Michigan won 76-60. Kalamazoo was ied by Frank happened in football. Kazoo with their two great g u a r d s will go


long way but Alma looks more like the team to beat. I think they've got All-Sports Trophy on the brain up there. A basketball title along «88g8888888888888888888$ with a first in football and second in cross-country would look mighty big. I n t e r - f r a t basketball got rolling again this week. I wish I didn't S T U D E N T S have to write this so soon. Then I'd know how that Cosmo-Frater brawl came out last Monday night. The winner should have no trouble winning the " B " league. That other league is really close. All but one FOR YOUR game have been won by eight points or less. Rex Roseman signed a football contract to play with the New York FOOT-WEAR N E E D S Yankees next fall. Ward of Hillsdale also signed a pro football contract. Roseman was named most valuable in the MIAA last fall. It'll bo interesting to see how these players make out in the really big time Well the bowling league is called off I guess. The F r a t s don't seem to be interested. Too bad things couldn't have been started back in 21 W. 8th St. Phone 2821 December.

Walters who personally accountet for 20 points offensively and was continually outstanding on defense Vande Wege led the Dutch with 14 while "Moose" Holwerda played a beautiful game covering the defense boards and scoring 10 points.

With seven minutes to go Hope led 36-29 but Walters poured it on and when the regulation game was over the score stood 39-39. A f t e r Hope took a three-point lead in the overtime Kazoo came back with six quick points and proceeded to freeze out a victory.
