Hope To Go On T.V. "Looking at H e a l t h with Hope" will be the title of the College Omnibus program to be presented by Hope this Saturday at 1:00 on Channel 8, WOOD*TV. Students from the Argumentation and Debate class and the intercollegiate debate team will present a discussion on health insurance f o r the aged and medically indigent. The members of the discussion panel will be Mary Bosch, Ann Herfst, L e o n a r d Lee, James Schaap, and Mary Whitlock. The announcer f o r the half hour program will be Lois Bonnema. Mr. Robert L. Smith is the Program Coordinator.

The subject to be discussed comes from the national intercollegiate d e b a t e resolution: "Resolved that the United States should adopt a program of compulsory health insurance for all citizens". This is to be one in a series of programs directed by Mr. Charles Leigham of WOOD in cooperation with the four main colleges in this area. The programs are designated to aquaint the general public with the activities of the college. Hope has one more program planned f o r presentation in the spring.

Grad Record Exams To Be Administered The Graduate Record Examinations, required of applicants for admission to a number of graduate schools and by an increasing number of donors of graduate fellowships, will be offered in the National .Program for Graduate School Selection

MEDEA to be First Spring Production MEDEA is to be produced March 23, 24, 25. Tryouts will be held in the Little T h e a t r e on Thurs. & Fri., Feb. 2 & 3, at 3:30. Anyone interested should try out at this time. People who want to work on back stage crews should contact Mr. De Young.

Library is Given a Grant The Hope College Library has received a grant of $500 from the Association of College and Research Libraries, Mr. John R. May, librarian, announcer today. The application f o r the grant was made jointly by Robert L. Smith and David Karsten of the S p e e c h Department and Mr.


May. The money will be used to purchase books in the areas of speech and dramatic art. The Hope grant was one of 60 grants totaling $46,010 made to colleges and universities by the A.C.R.L., a division of the American Library Association.

Hope Receives Grant for Summer Science Institute The National Science Foundation has given Hope College a grant of $42,100 for a summer Institute in Mathematics and Science for Junior High Teachers, according to Dr. Jay Folkert, h e a d of the Hope Mathematics Department, who will be director of the institute. The fund will provide 44 junior high t e a c h e r s with stipends ranging from $450 to $810 for the six week session which begins June 26,1961. Four courses will be offered including biology, chemistry, and two math courses. Members of the institute and their families will be housed and will take their meals in Voorhees Hall. Out of 713 colleges and universities applying for the grants f o r summer institutions the National S c i e n c e Foundation awarded 395 grants. The foundation anticipates that this summer a total of 19,494 teachers will participate in the summer institute p r o g r a m s which it sponsors.

Courses will be offered in almost every section offered by Hope College during the regular academic year. The courses offered are determined by the demand of students who apply. The eight week session for languages will offer German, Greek and Spanish. The program is designed for the acceleration of those students who wish to complete their college education at an earlier date than usual. Most of the students in previous years have been from Hope, although a few students from other colleges and universities have also attended. The enrollment for last year's session was 225 and, judging from the preliminary applications already submitted, an

even bigger enrollment is expected for this summer. One quarter of the regular faculty of Hope College provide the instructional staff. Also a few selected professors from other schools supplement this number. Adding to the many summer recreational benefits around Holland, the summer school also will have an orchestra for interested students. Room and board will be offered to all students. Women are required to live on campus, unless they live at home or make other arrangements with the Dean of Women. Classes will meet daily for double sessions. The maximum amount of credits carried by a student is 7, with the exception of the language session, in which the student carries 8 credits. Library facilities are provided throughout the session. The brochure for the 1961 session will be available March 1st. All interested students should contact Dr. Brand of the English department as soon as possible for additional information.

Has Hope Failed In Its Role They Are Playing My Tune As A Church Supported College? Next semester I'll study harder. Next semester I'll go to class more often. Next semester I'll pay more attention in class. Next semester I'll get my term paper done before • the last week of the semester. Next semester I'll go to chapel more often. Next semester I'll go to the kletz less. Next semester I'll always have my assignments done on time. Next semester I'll keep up with my daily assignments. Next semester I'll "socialize" less and read more "really good" books. Next semester I'll not cram for tests. Next semester I'll concentrate less on grades and more on learning. Next semester I'll get an education.

Open to All or Such Was the Case "The next application is from Nona Thin. She is nineteen and a senior at Providence High School in Churchville, Iowa. It says here that she applied to Excelsior University because she heard that it was a very good school." Mr. Chairman was citing several other pertinent facts of the application when Dean Van Kirk broke in, "What is her church affiliation?" "She is a member of our denomination. In fact she's been a communicant member since she was twelve." Then Dean E. ver Klymer inquired, "Now, exactly what can this girl offer our institution? That is, will her presence enhance our rating?" "The application says she sang in the church choir, was secretary of the Home Economics Club, and her scholastic average is 70. But during first semester her average was 74." "I meant, what status does her family hold in the community ?" "Ah, yes!" Mr. Chairman continued, "Her father is the prominent businessman whose picture was in our Church Paper. He was the one who gave the large contribution to his church's building fund. " H m . . . a gracious man." "It is my opinion after hearing Nona Thin's qualifications that she ought to be given an opportunity to prove herself," concluded Mr. Leddimin. A The others nodded. Mr. Chairman went to the next application. This was the case—until recently. Now stiffer entrance requirements are being put into effect to alleviate this problem. The question still remains when do you draw the line.

ed. note: The following article was taken from the WOOSTER COLLEGE VOICE, (Wooster's newspaper) Wooster, Ohio. The editorial board feels the following discussion is pertinent to Hope's situation. H o p e and Wooster have much in common; Both are c h u r c h affiliated; Wooster is with the Presbyterian Church. Their enrollment is about the same. Both have been listed among the top colleges in academic achievement. They have similar rules concerning religious belief when employing new faculty members. There is about the same number of foreign students attending both institutions* The article was w r i t t e n by 44 scholarship students. These students came to the conclusion that Wooster had failed to fulfill her roll as a church related college and p r o c e e d , in the article printed below, to point out the main points of failure and suggest a partial solution. (Hope has been substituted for Wooster in the article.) One difficulty which obscures these issues seems to be the mutual inability of the administration and students to express their purposes and desires in terms understandable to each other. This lack of communication is basic and must be dealt with before any coherent approach to solutions can be undertaken. We feel t h a t to a large degree this lack of communication may be traced to the administration's failure to appraise correctly the spirit which determines the orientation of many of the students. There exists on campus today a broad feeling of what has been termed "apathy", "pseudo - sophistication", and non commitment," and many do not necessarily desire to achieve one. . . Academic Excellence During the past years, Hope College has become one of the top colleges in academic achievement. This relative academic excellence alone is now capable of attracting many of the students who come here and is probably one of the dominant reasons why students choose Hope. New Types of Students Come The relevance of all this is t h a t the student to whom Hope appeals today is not the same as the student of 20 or even 10 years ago, and it is no longer valid to assume that he is attracted to the same degree by the opportunities f o r Christian experience or t h a t he will have any particular spiritual quest in mind when he comes here. In fact, he will often have a critical and even skeptical attitude towards Christianity, and thus an approach based on the assumption of a mutual Christian heritage will be, to a large measure, meaningless. If the administration is to communicate its principles effectively, it must take account of the changing orientation of the students so it can establish communication on a plane which will have some relevance for them. What is the role of a churchrelated college? Without supposing our answer to be extensive, we would contend that the church-related college must present the questions and problems with which man, in particular twentieth-century man, is con-

fronted and the various approaches to them. Next, the college must present Christianity so that the student can realize the depth with which it is possible for Christianity to deal with these problems. Finally, a Christian college must not merely offer the student the possibility of acquaintance with Christianity; it must also take on the responsibility of being the representative of t h a t Christianity, which, rightly or wrongly, will be heavily judged by the depth of the representation. I t is our feeling t h a t at present much of the exposure to Christianity a t Hope is superficial because it makes no more t h a n a passing attempt to relate Christianity to the problems, questions, and issues in the students mind. Thus without a more meaningful exposure the student cannot be expected to embrace Christianity. Because of the superficiality of the presentation, the student may be discouraged t h a t he will feel t h a t Christianity is neither pro-

to have f o r those who profess it. In particular, the student will be prone to judge Christianity by the practice of his professors, especially when there is a standard as the present faculty rule. This rule states t h a t : "In accord with the standards adopted it shall be the declared policy of the college to employ as regular members of the faculty only men and women who are active members in good standing of some evangelical Christian church which affirms its loyalty to Jesus Christ as the Divine Lord and Savior." Profession of faith, however, does not equal Christian witness; on the other hand, there are men in the academic field who embody in their lives those attributes which Hope wants to instill in her students, and yet who do not profess faith in the creed of a particular institution. On the grounds, then, that the faculty rule is an ineffective method of selecting teachers for those qualities which Hope would like them to embody, and




found enough n o r pertinent enough to deal with his problems and will quite possibly have little future respect for it. No Place for Bible History A t present, each student is required to take a semester each of Old and New Testament, which are predominantly historical in emphasis and serve as an introduction to the foundations of Christianity. Such a detailed historical background, however, is not necessary to an understanding of the contempory implications of Christianity to the student's own life. Without extending the religion requirement, we suggest that a partial solution might be obtained by expanding the choice of courses which would fulfill these requirements. The student possessing a certain minimum background in Bible might more advantageously take a course such as Modern Christian Thinkers. How are Hope's Professors? Ultimately, the student is not going to judge Christianity by any objective presentation of it, but by the meaning it appears

that it tends further to identify the actions of the men with the institution to which it demands that they must at least nominally belong, we would like to see the faculty rule withdrawn. Since some criteria are still necessary f o r the selection of teachers, we feel that those employed by the Danforth Foundation in selecting its fellows might be applicable to Hope: although a Protestant outlook and heritage are encouraged, the man who possesses a deep religious conviction and is willing to work within a Protestant environment is chosen above the man who possesses only Protestant church membership. A final c r i t i c i s m concerns what is sometimes called Provincialism at Hope. This is indicated by a lack of breadth in both the spiritual and intellectual opportunities at Hope and is vitally connected with the preceding points. A Christian commitment can be profound only if there is a sense (Cont'd on Page 3)

Social Sidelights



Has Hope Failed In Its Role?

Formals Highlight the Weeh

(Cont'd from Page 2)

Hi! Lets get right under way with our "Sidelights" this week and see what has been happening around the "Campi".

Kappa Beta Phi At their business meeting last Friday night the Dorians discussed plans for their formal to be held on February 24th. The theme will be "Future Fascinations". The literary meeting followed with a serious paper by Donna Ten Brink and a humor paper by Barb Blunt. For their meeting next week the Dorians will have a pizza party at "II Forno's.

Chi Phi Sigma Friday the 13th may be an unlucky for some people, but for the Arkies and their dates it was a great day as they enjoyed the annual winter formal, Celestial Suite, at the Spring Lake Country Club. Festivities got under way at 5:30 with a pre-formal party held at the home of Arcadian Ruben Kamper. Pictures were taken upon arrival, and then came the 6:30 banquet MCd by Fritz Kruitoff. Nut cups in the form of miniature china, baby-grand pianos and musical notes arranged on the tables helped to carry out the musical theme of the evening. A sirloin steak dinner was served. Following the dinner The Cord Counts, a well-known barbershop quartet from Holland, presented a half-hour program. After a short intermission, dancing with the fine Lew Allen orchestra began. At the same time a movie, "A Song to Remember", was shown in an adjoining room. The final event of the evening was a double pinning ceremony at which Miss Helen Joldersma and Miss Marcia Meengs were each presented a bouquet of red roses by XOE president. Jay Nyhuis, while the men of Arcadian sang a presentation song and "Moonlight and Roses". The girls are pinned to Arcadians, Wes Bonzelaar and Rich Bakker, respectively. Special guests for the evening included Mr. and Mrs. Roger Rietberg, Mrs. Jeanette "Mom" Boeskool and Mrs. Mary Tollman.

Sigma lota Beta "Do you have Triskaidekaphobia?" This strange disease was discussed by Shirley Harmelink at the literary meeting last Friday night. Those who have triskaidekaphobia possess a fear of the number 13. The Sibs were interested in this because their meeting was held on Friday the 13th. Jo Van Lente led devotions and presented roses to those girls who became engaged over the Christmas vacation. ENGAGEMENTS Bobbie Dykema (SIB) to Gordon Bolt (OTN), Mary Kuiper (Delphi) to Marty Elzinga (OKA) and Sharon VanEerden to Tom Bos. PINNING Bonnie Nitering to John Brooks (OKA) and Lora Van Duinen to Harold Wood (OTN). Congratulations!

of real alternatives. Not only is Hope obligated to provide depth in the Christianity it represents, it must also present as actual possibilities non-Christian approaches. Otherwise it becomes meaningless to speak of a free spiritual quest in which the student is afforded full opportunity to determine meaningful values for himself. The "q u e s t " then becomes merely that of accepting or r e j e c t i n g Christianity. The points we have considered heretofore can also be thought of in the light of this provincialism 1 The* faculty rule, for example, is intended to provide that the teachers at Hope exemplify Christianity in their lives. But we need more than a "fair and objective" treatment,

by men within the Christian tradition, of the alternatives to Christianity; we need men who embody in their lives those alternatives so that we can see how meaningful they might be. Ways of Improvement The development of religious awareness, however, is in the long run hampered by the presence of that intellectual provincialism which is also present at Hope. This provincialism is seen in the limitations reflected by the similar social and geographical backgrounds of most of the students, or by the absence of courses in which the philosophy and history of nonWestern cultures is presented Positive steps to alleviate this problem might include: 1. The establishment of departments in Eastern and Afri-

Commissions Meet in Y Meeting The three Y commissions met on Tuesday, January 10, 1960, at which time each commission held its own program. World Concerns Commission, led by Gordon Stegink and Leander Wang, discussed the problems of the F a r East. Mr. Wang, as speaker, said that he felt it i m p o s s i b l e for the United States to "sit on the fence" in dealing with these nations. He gave a resume of the political and s o c i a l trends of India, Pakistan, Nepal, Burma, Indonesia, the Phillipines, Red China, Nationalist China, Korea, and Japan. He also analyzed the conditions and reasons why he believes that communism has an advantage over democracy in the struggle over these neutral nations. The Service Commission, under the direction of Marilyn Scudder, reviewed last year's projects and made some new plans for this year. The atti-

tude of service was also discussed as were projects carried on by Christians in the mission fields for those who are not of the church. Love, Interest, and Sensitivity were stated as important goals f o r the work of this commission. The Christian Faith or Worship commission, Paul Swets Program chairman, enjoyed a report of the National Youth conference held in Pella, Iowa during the Christmas Vacation. Mr. Swets, who presented the program, dealt with the theme, "The Church and Me". His basic ideas on this theme were drawn generally from the entire conference and specifically from a speech by Dr. Howard Hageman. Betty Whitaker is commission chairman. No Y meetings will be held for the next two weeks because of exams. The next regular meeting will be February 7, 1961 at 7:00 in the chapel.

ETS advises each applicant to inquire of the graduate school of his choice which of the examinations he should take and on which dates. Applicants for graduate school fellowships are often asked to take the designated examinations in the fall administration. The GRE tests offered . in these nationwide programs include a test of general scholastic ability and advance level tests of achievement in sixteen different subject matter fields.

According to ETS, candidates are permitted to take the Aptitude Test and/or one of the Advanced Tests.

can studies to broaden the student's understanding of the world in which he lives and to fix his own beliefs in better perspective. 2. An increase in the number of foreign students a t Hope and in the number of Hope students studying abroad. 3. A decrease in the percentage of Hope graduates on the faculty and in the administration. The stimulation of different cultural and educational backgrounds at student, faculty, and administrative levels could help avoid intellectual provincialism and keep Hope near t h e ' t h e front in the field of higher education. Actions on these levels might eventually lead to the establishing of Hope as a real testing ground of ideas. This is the only atmosphere in which Protestant Christianity can find its fullest expression. In this statement we have attempted to set forth briefly what we feel to be some of the more important aspects of the problems connected with the church-relatedness of Hope. In doing so, we have made the tacit and by no means obvious assumption that the churchrelated college is not an anachronism and has a distinct and valid function in today's society. We have not attempted to set up a definite solution to the entire problem, for the issues are by no means completely clear to us. But we do feel that the points we have made are both valid and relevant and may form a base upon which constructive discussion and action can take place. Kenneth Hoffman Barbara Huddleston William Reinhardt Co-authors for the Presbyterian Scholars 1. One student disagreed with the basic philosophy of the statement for the following reasons: "I believe that a college should be a place of searching for 'truths' and that the broadest possible experience is necessary for this searching. Being a church college and thus to some extent dependent on a specific denomination imposes many restrictions on college life. The main part of the preceding statement, being based on the assumption that a church college is good, is aimed at modifying and broadening these restrictions. But there will always be the limiting factor of church-relatedness. Only the e l i m i n a t i o n of church dependence will in the end, provide the broadest and most intellectually fre e atmosphere necessary f o r a good college .experience. I therefore do not approve the above printed resolution. 2. One student wished to express n e i t h e r support or dissent 3. Two students in substantial agreement with the statement felt that problems regarding the religion requirement and the faculty rule could be more adequately solved within the existing framework. 4.

One student feels that Hope is presently fulfilling its role. 5. Thirty-nine students support the statement without reservation. -

Makes a New Record


School in New York, piled up 40 points against the Dales to break the great Paul Benes' 39 point record set three years ago. It was about the only record which Jim's brother Warren failed to break in his tremendous final season last year. Jim, who was v o t e d AllQueens First Team in high school, is the third member of his family to play f o r Hope. His father played f o r the Dutch back in the '30s and brother Warren finished his four year career last season.

Dutchmen Miss 100 Mark; But Topple Hillsdale 99-90 Cheers u r g i n g the Flying Dutchmen to hit the century mark f a r outshone in volume all exhortations at any time during the game for team victory last Saturday, as the Hope College cagers swept to a decisive 99-90 win over an improved Hillsdale team. The 2,100 f a n s at the Civic Center were equally vehement in urging the team to "feed" Jim "Spider" Vander Hill in his successful attempt to establish a new individual scoring record, a not-so-amusing con-

A look at this seasons statistics (through the Hillsdale game) shows why this boy is getting so much attention from basketball fans throughout the area. In ten games in which he has played (he missed the Olivet game due to illness), Jim has scored 215 points for an overall 21.5 average.



VanderHill's three conference games have netted him .0 points for a 26 point MIAA average. In the l a s t five games "Spider" has turned in performances of 24, 29, 36, 30, and 40 points for a 159 total and 31 point average!

Jim Vander Hill jumps up to score another two points on the way 40 point record.

By Merwyn Scholten "I believe his value as a player is three-fold. First, he's an expert shooter; secondly, he's got a lot of spring and third, he can shoot with either hand and with either foot forward!" These were the words of coach Russ DeVette as he referred to the outstanding basketball abili-


In addition to his tremendous scoring effort, Jim manages to help out with the rebounding while playing a fast-moving floor game. D e s p i t e all his activity he has only 20 personal fouls called against him in the 10 games.

When asked what it felt like to set a new record Jim rather shyly replied, "I don't know. I really don't feel any different about it. In fact I didn't even know how many points I had or what the previous record was until they (his teammates) told me just before I shot those last two foul shots!"









He has made 166 of his points by sinking 83 field goals while stacking away 49 of 62 free throws for a comfortable .690 free throw percentage. He has hit his last 13 straight at the charity line.

trol of the boards during the first ten minutes, enabled Hope to build up a 20 point lead at halftime. The visitors, proving themselves more competitive than their record would seem to indicate, managed to close the gap to nine points, and effectively stall the Dutchmen just short of their hundredth point, to the disappointment of the more statistically minded fans. "Wilt" Vanderbilt and Glenn VanWieren followed Vander Hill at a respectable distance in the scoring, while Reid, Nederveld, and Schut contributed substantially to the team effort. Ek Buys returned to action for the Dutchmen f o r the first time since an ankle injury had sidelined him during the Olivet game. Between halves, Duke Davidson, Hillsdale football center, was presented the Randall C. Bosch most valuable award for his work in the MIAA race, an honor apparently not affected by Hillsdale's suspension from the League.
