From Library Files . Free Trade vs. Tariff Barriers o

The nations of the world are meeting at the London Conference during these weeks attempting to discover some amoelioration f o r our complex world problems. At the root of many of these problems is the trade policy advocated and practiced by these nations. One of the many steps we must take to insure genuine peace is for the nations of the world to realize t h a t economic co-operation is a s vital as political accord. To practice t h e system of f r e e trade would be the ideal plan. This plan recognizes the interdependence of nations. This would show t h a t we are no longer following the policy of isolation but we realize t h a t we must work for the common good. The system of f r e e change would involve a gradual abolition of tariff barriers and what are commonly called cartels and blocs. There are, however, those who claim we can only judge the f u t u r e by our past history which proves that t a r i f f s are needed for protection. It is claimed that we have free trade in the Uinted States t h a t is not altogether successful; so therefore, how can we expect such a plan to succeed on a world basis. It is also imperative t h a t any solution to trade problems must be practical; and therefore no "ideal plan" of free trade would rectify our present problems. A country operating under tariff laws can be prevented from selling products produced by underpaid workers. It is also true t h a t production and consumption are the only things on the mind of man under f r e e trade. It is absolutely vital that we form some working system of trade co-operation. W'e must face the fact that a breakdown in any system of trade that is chosen will inevitably result in world chaos. "We cannot have genuine peace without healthy world trade, and we certainly cannot have healthy trade without genuine peace."

Test Your Religious Convictions Every sincere Christian recognizes his need for periodic selfe x a m i n a t i o n . He m u s t r e - a f f i r m his convictions and d e t e r m i n e if he is actually a p p l y i n g Christian principles to everyday living. It is easy to be a nominal C h r i s t i a n ; it is not easy to practice Christianity. In the rush of college activity which necessitates hard work f o r classes, clubs and societies, and in the pursuit of recreation and e n t e r t a i n m e n t , the a v e r a g e college student can scarcely find t i m e to pursue each avenue of activity. O f t e n , to include all these t h i n g s in his daily p r o g r a m , he neglects his religious t h o u g h t and duty. So t h u s it is t h a t continual re-consecration is needed to maintain the desire to give religion an i m p o r t a n t place in life. Only t h r o u g h c o n s t a n t inspiration and zeal can each p r o f e s s i n g Christian

Dear Mom: A f t e r s u p p e r the o t h e r nite we w e n t In to see o u r new F i r s t S g t . to see if we could somehow g e t p a s s e s back t o o u r f o r m e r comp a n y , a s one of o u r buddies r w a s g e t t i n g m a r r i e d on S a t u r d a y and we w a n t e d t o go to t h e wedding. E a r l y S a t u r d a y morning, I w a s a w a k e n e d by t h e prospective brideg r o o m , and told to h u r r y up and g e t dressed so I could help him with s o m e a r r a n g e m e n t s . I had planned t o w r i t e you t h e f i r s t t h i n g in t h e m o r n i n g , but t h e best m a n w a s l a t e t h a t m o r n i n g , and I had help Ike ( t h e b r i d e g r o o m ) t a k e c a r e of t h e details. Now t h e wedding, it was conducted F r e n c h style, and I m i g h t add, w h a t a s t y l e ! Ike, t h r e e othe r s and myself arrived s o m e w h e r e in the neighborhood of ten o'clock, a t the residence of t h e bride-to-be and w e r e introduced to the f a m i l y and f r i e n d s . Then we s a t a r o u n d and talked. A t eleven we all w e n t out and boarded t h e two G.I. t r u c k s , t h a t Ike had borrowed f o r t h e occasion, and took off f o r t h e city hall. The F r e n c h custom is a little d i f f e r e n t from- the A m e r i c a n h e r e as they have no scruples about t h e bride seeing the groom and visa versa, b e f o r e the ceremony. T h e bride did, however, ride with the best man and not the groom, until a f t e r the church ceremony. We got to the City Hall and went in f o r t h e legal end of the wedding. T h e y read off a lot of s t u f f and n e a r l y everyone t h e r e had to sign t h e i r J o h n Henry. Then they passed t h e collection plate ( q u a i n t c u s t o m ) and we took off a g a i n . I f o r g o t to mention t h a t j u s t b e f o r e we l e f t the house I w a s hauled off to the side by Ike and introduced to " m y d a t e f o r the d a y . " She was tall, a shade heavy, but very a t t r a c t i v e , and couldn't u n d e r s t a n d a word of E n g l i s h . Well, to g e t back to the City Hall a g a i n . We bounced out of t h e r e , me with t h i s babe h a n g i n g on my a r m , and some j o k e r snapped a pict u r e as we c a m e out. We hopped into the t r u c k s a g a i n and l e f t f o r the church. T h e church was a very p r e t t y stone building, s o m e w h a t like the Chapel. The service was Catholic and I spent most of the t i m e nervously w a t c h i n g the r e s t of the boys and doing what t h e y did, e x c e p t i n g the crossing and kneeling. The priest had an i n t e r p r e t e r to say what he said in English, so e v e r y t h i n g was done twice. A f t e r the f o r m a l service, we were t a k e n down to the cellar to record i t on the church books. A f t e r the s i g n i n g was finished, t h e bride and groom were pushed into position by t h e priest and we w e r e ordered to line up to kiss and s h a k e hands. I felt a little silly k i s s i n g one side then s w i t c h i n g my head to kiss t h e o t h e r , t h e way F r e n c h G e n e r a l s do in the movies, but I got t h r o u g h O. K. A f t e r t h e church, we went to t h e photoshop to g e t t h e wedding pict u r e s made. W e w e r e t h e r e an hour and I n e a r l y fell off t h e back bleacher, w h e r e t h e y put me,

" S w i n g y o u r p a r t n e r to and fro. Around and around you g o . " The voice of Mr. Clyde Geerlings, caller e x t r a o r d i n a r y , was heard above the g r o a n s and squeals of t h e compet e n t ( ? ) square dancers Friday n i g h t at t h e Barn p a r t y at the W o m a n ' s L i t e r a r y club. T h e Korn K a p e r s were attended by 66 Alpha S i g m a Alpha members and their escorts. A f t e r an hour of square dancing, t h e tired victims were prepared for a n y t h i n g — a n d they got it. J a n Joldersma, president, welcomed the g u e s t s and introduced t h e mistress of ceremonies, Muncie Vande Wege. Mr. Geerlings led in singing accompanied by Dot Bergers. J e a n Sibley e n t e r t a i n e d with several poems about " L i t t l e Willie" and ended with "Jabberwocky." It was advised t h a t no one in his right mind should a t t e m p t these poems. J u d y Mulder continued the Kape r s by m a k i n g the fellows swoon to "Shine on. Harvest Moon." The Queens of Korn, Theressa Staal, Bernie Nichols, Iris Vande Bunte, Phyllis Weenink, Phyllis Mulder and Betty Vande Wege, s a n g ( ? ) "I Love Her J u s t the Same," accompanied by a record on—pardon me! You're not supposed to know that. " U p to now has been the Kapers. Now comes the corn." In a receptive s t a t e of mind, the audience heard " F r i d a y Afternoon Recitat i o n " in the f a r m school. Taking p a r t in the final act were Arkie Wieten, C o n n i e Hinga, Peggy Prins, Carol Prigge, Pauline Viening and Muncie Vande Wege. A f t e r the program the guests heard the dinner bell and the f a r m e r ' s wife served donuts and chocolate milk. A f t e r the livestock were fed and watered, all hands spent the remainder of the evening in playing games. I won't say who won Monopoly, but from now on, he's capitalist John DeVries. Connie Hinga was chief f a r m e r of the p a r t y . Ike H e e m s t r a and Carolyn Ingham had charge of deco r a t i n g the stalls and Eunice Gross w a s in c h a r g e of preparing the harvest meal. Peggy Prins and Muncie Vande Wege provided the e n t e r t a i n m e n t d u r i n g the rest period. All hands hit the hay at 12:30. The K a r e t a k e r s were Mrs. Marg a r e t Prins, Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Geerlings and Mr. and Mrs. Jack Schouten.

T h u r s d a y night marked a g r e a t step f o r w a r d in t h e recent history of the Musical A r t s Club.


Fuller is to be commended f o r one of the most well-planned and smoothly executed programs of the semester. Dorothea Dixon showed herself to be worthy of the title "college senior" when she spoke for some twenty-odd minutes of the personality and works of Cesar Franck, t h e subject of the evening. She spoke with ease and assurance, the audience sharing her enthusiasm and responding freely to the interpolated humor in her talk. Hers definitely was not a last minute compilation of encyclopedic facts; quite to the contrary, it was indicative of more than a superficial amount of preparation.

• "Let it snow, let it snow!" may have berm the desire of many of us several weeks past but, please, if it's all the same with you I'd rathoi* he "taken for a sleigh ride in J u l y . " Snow gets quite monotonous at times and this is one of those times. So, if any one of your acquaintances happen to know Mr. Weather Man, would you relay that message from yers t r u l y ?

Kitsema Speaks Nellie Mae Ritsema had the difficult assignment of describing the technical aspects of the organ to a group largely unfamiliar with the instrument. The result was a somewhat academic t r e a t m e n t of the subject, but Nellie Mae showed discretion in limiting her observations to the least technical aspects of a highly specialized subject. Hear Franck's Works Several recordings of Franck's works for the organ were played, of which the most sensational and dramatic was the Piece Heroique. In this work the volume becomes so g r e a t that an apathetic listener is an impossibility. Every nerve in the body becomes taut and the hearer is identified for a moment with eternity—so great is the emotional pinnacle to which Franck succeeds in bringing his audience. Yet the dramatic and sensational are not characteristic (\f Franck's works. He is more accurately "cathedralesque" as Dorothea termed it, and this is readily apparent in the m a j o r i t y of his works.


Kxairs are t h e predominant thought of all of us at the present time but over the week-end every Freshman Frolicked at Ye Olde Lit Clube in true F r e s h m a n F a r m e r style. Mr. Scholten (Don, that is) was right in there pitchin' all night long. Ruff, huh, Don ? Then too, you all know that Sorosites held their big formal function the next Saturday night.

Third Floor Van Vleck Corner Rooms (Remember they made the headlines last issue thanx to those two strong, silent young men, Mr. VanHeest and Mr. John Smith) were ablaze with excitment until well a f t e r 2:00 a. m. Hut those poor girls, you know they get a date only now and then and mostly then. Vuh, ain't that comical? For a little off the record chatter we understand that Mr. Don Mulder, he's on the basketball team you know, has one of the most talked of physiques on campus and lis legsl I'm speechless. Then too. Louise TerBeek has the reputation

for being the Klsa Maxwell of Hope College. Those Sunday night Sessions we understand are strictly sooopurb. How does one rate a bid to one of those select sociables?

Hope Defeats Calvin 60 - 52 As Teams Meet In Gr. Rapids Hope basketball team emerges victorious over the Calvin College players in a wild g a m e 60-52, played on Tuesday, J a n u a r y 23, in Grand Rapids. This g a m e marked Hope's third consecutive victory in five days. Hope jumped into an early 4-0 lead, and a t one stage in the first half, held 24 points to Calvin's 14. As the half drew to a close, Calvin challenged the Dutchmen's 31-27 lead. During part of the second half, Hope held only a one point margin. But, with ten minutes left, Zuverink and Van Dis started hitting the basket and forged ahead 49-39. At the sound of the horn, Hope led 60-52. Gabby Van Dis scored 24 points f o r Hope, doing almost every conceivable trick with the basketball. He was closely followed by Don Mulder who tallied with 13 and Ken Zuerink with 12 points. The speed combination formed by Mulder and Van Dis was hard to break. Gene B r o e n e of the Calvin Knights totaled 12 points for the evening. He with the shooting accuracy of John Vander Molen kept Calvin in the contest.

It seems as though everybody is taking to the air nowadays . . . We hear that the 1946 University of

Wisconsin football team will travel to California by plane next fall for an engagement with the University of California gridders. And while we're on the subject of air — the atmosphere around Ebbets field this year will contain an even greater amount of flying pop bottles . . . We have it from unusually unreliable sources that a thousand more box seats are being added to "da home of da bums." In a recent issue of the Tribune, we read that the Indians (of Cleveland) made a f r e e agent of Al Smith, veteran southpaw hurler . . . Sounded to us like American history — or are we thinking of Captain J o h n ? ? ? It has been said of a lot of guys that they aren't worth a dime, but Walker Cooper is one guy who's worth $175,000 . . . At least that's what the New York Giants paid this m a j o r league catcher when they closed the biggest postwar baseball deal with the St. Louis Cards. The White Sox also parted with a pretty penny in order to get Jim Tabor, veteran infielder, on their lineup . . . Those Southern slave holders had nothing on modern big league baseball, what with the poor players wondering who will be their owner f o r next season.




Making up team one are Albers, Chaput, Dykema, Gore, Lockwood, Moolenaar, Ruys, Slinn, Venneman, and Van Ingen. On team two are Andre, Clemmons, Efird, Hanna, Ingham, Hichols, Scholten, Timmer, Van Leeuwen, and Vredeveld. Members of team three are Biddle, Dalenburg, Eckema, Heemstra, Kloosterman, Prigge, Sibley, Van der Heuvel, Vermaire, and Watson. Team four is composed of Bogart, Dame, Finlaw, Hemmes, Knol, Prins, J a n e t Snow, Van Derveer, Visser and Westerman. Brewer, Demain, Fredericks, Hinga, Korteling, Pyle, Le Ronde, Mary Van De Wege, Midge Voss, and Wieten make up team five. Players on the last team are Dietrich, Goff, Hains, Huizenga, Johnson, Lievense, Quant, Van Dyke, Phyl Voss, and Van Egdom. Let's make the play f a s t and furious — and give it the enthusiasm you have bowling — which reminds me! Your enthusiasm seems to have been so great there, t h a t you have been neglecting to put your full!!! name on the score sheets. Also, you've been bowling more than the two games allowed each Friday. Please heed both of these minor rulings next time you bowl, for the complications are most "confoosin'."

Well, strip my g e a r s and call me shiftless . . . I thought t h a t last week's paper was the last one but then the heads of the department of public information decided to put out another milestone in journalism . . . Speaking of writing . . . my poor aching fingers a f t e r writing all those exams . . . Pause while we all laugh . . . They weren't too bad though and besides t h e r e is nothing like repeating a semester . . . You really understand a subject then . . . changing the subject . . . Friday night, the 25th, was a gala occasion f o r the Freshmen girls and their dates . . . The " L i t " rocked back and f o r t h as the guys and g a l s rollicked around and around to the music of fiddle, banjo ( P e g Prins is going to take lessons on said instrument next semester) . . . And other undistinguishable sounds of a barn dance orchestra . . . (by transcription) . . . Everyone had quite a time and no casualties . . . The highlight of the evening, a f t e r the square dancing was the program . . . "Korn K a pe r s" . . . ( f i t t i n g name) . . . Poor Willie, the bridge . . . and t h a t ' s who you're with tonight . . . During the evening a s t r a n g e kind of laugh was heard ringing through the building'. . .

Pontier and " C u r l y " Hinga were sitting in the bleachers and Jack said, "Do you see t h a t fella playing guard down t h e r e ? I think he is going to be our best man next year." Connie turned to him with those big brown eyes and said, "Oh, darling, this is so sudden" . . . Ha, ha, I popped a corny . . . Where do I get those things? "shooting the Ferdinand" with the boys . . . Speaking of boys just naturally brings us to girls . . . 'Nuff said, period . . . Speaking of periods . . . reminds me of all the periodicals called term papers that had to be written . . . (I'm sorry about that periodicals) . . . Many was the night t h a t Van Vleck (see Van Heest and Smith) Voorhees, Zwemer, and all the other "dorms," not to mention "town houses" burned with light, while all those industrious kiddies bent their heads over heavy volumes . . . of "Forever Amber" . . . Speaking of volumes . . . J u s t think of all the volumes everybody consumed in those weeks g e t t i n g ready for those nice juicy exams . . . Speaking of exams . . . Lucky were those male individuals who only had a couple and could spend their nights with their favorite co-ed wandering through the campus osculating beneath the moon . . .
