The holiday season brought tragedy into the homes of two more Hope men who lost their lives in the service of their country, Lt. William Faasen and Lt. Joseph Whitworth. Lt. "Bill" Faasen was killed in a plane crash over Belgium on December 28. Bill was from Holland and spent only one semester on the campus in 1941 after which he went to Montana to work. While on the campus he was a member of Emmersonian fraternity. Lt. "Joe" Whitwcrth, a ferry command pilot, was killed on Christmas Day in a plane crash over Indianapolis, Indiana, while en route to visit his wife in Tennessee. His home was in Flushing, New York, and he was also a member of Emersonian fraternity during his three years on the campus.

Mrs. B. Van Leuwen To Teach New Course A new course in dramatic production taught by Mrs. Bruce Van Leuwen will be offered during the second semester on Tuesdays from 2:00-3:00 and on Thursday, 2:004:00. The course is being offered mainly for those students who will find it necessary to direct plays in their teaching engagements. The course will be primarily a survey of play production, giving an overall picture of how one should go about coaching a play. It will give the background work for various phases of dramatics. The course is open to juniors and seniors.

Tickets will be on sale in the near future.

from every branch of the armed services come reports of unstinted praise of the work of the American Red Cross. Blood plasma is one of the great life-savers of this war. The Red Cross collects it. An almost endless number of bandages is needed. The Red Cross makes them. Red Cross nurses care for the sick and the wounded. R e d Cross furnishes our men with food and drink where and when they need it most. Red Cross food, medicine and comfort packages have kept American prisoners-of-war alive. Red Cross renders home service for the seniceman's family. For all these purposes the appeal comes again this year for $200,000,000.00 for the work of the Red Cross. The quotas are the same as last year. Holland must raise $15,000 for this cause. Hope College students can help and we hope they will. Some of our fellow-students have made the supreme sacrifice, some are missing, some are prisoners, some are wounded, many are fighting and many more are in training. We must not and dare not let them down. Last year the students of Hope College raised $362.54 for the Red Cross. Of course then we had the ASTP to help with a basketball game and a show, which two sources brought in over two-thirds of the money. But the Musical Arts Club and other organizations helped, too. Perhaps the student body can invent some source of income for this good cause. The Musical Arts Club has started the ball a-rolling again this year with a gift of $34.00. The Red Cross campaign takes place in March. But we should plan for it now. Remember your fellow-students at the front. This is a war-time appeal; a summons to extra effort. Yours for the American Red Cross. PAUL E. KINKAMP, Chairman Red C r o s s War Fund, South Half of Ottawa County.

W . A . L ; Student Council Plan Full Social Calendar Saturday Night Party Will Be Final Event Ellison Acting As Chairman of D. T. Week February 12 through 17 will find Hope co-eds busy hunting up dates for the activities of Dutch Treat Week. This social week is annually planned by Student Council, and this year especially t h e girls will have to make their dates early and make definite plans for their activities. W.A.L. is working with the Student Council in this allimportant week on the Hope co-ed's calendar of social doings, and will organize a Coketail party Friday afternoon, February 16, which will be held in the gymnasium. Student Council has planned a big party for Saturday night, February 17. This party will also be held in the gymnasium — dress will be very informal, skirts and sweaters for the girls, slacks and sport shirts for the "victims." Folk games and refreshments will be the order of the night. Tickets will be sold by Student Council members. Student Council Social Chairman Ruth Ellison will be General Chairman of D. T. Week — with Pat Haskin taking charge of publicity, Joyce Van Oss as Party Chairman, and Mary Liz Aldrich in charge of other activities to take place during the entire week. There will be plenty of smaller group activities during the week to furnish fun and entertainment for all Hope girls and their dates — bowling, skating, coke dates, theater parties. So, to all Hope femmes — plan your "line of attack," get your dates for D. T. Mary Eliz. Aldrich Week, and make ready for a week A gracious manner and buoyant of fun starting February 12.

Graves Is Shrouded In Romanfic Past History Exactly forty years before our new chapel was built, W. K. Johnson, designer of that building, designed another beautiful building in modified Renaissance architecture. That building was built on the site of the DuHope Printing Office in 1892, and still stands in all of its splendor at the Hope College entrance. Graves Library and Winant's Chapel, whose chief donors were N. F. Graves and Capt. Winant, had its cornerstone of granite laid in June, 1892. For nine months men labored on its solid stone walls and Italian workmen sculptured its beautiful Italian carvings on the doors and windows. And then, in the spring of 1893, its doors were opened to college functions.

Attitudes aren't easily changed — we know that. But if all Houseboard members would shoulder their responsibility — feel that it is their personal duty to see that dormitory laws and rules are maintained, and feel this very deeply, then I think dormitory girls would have more respect for their governing body.

Well, chillins — I see cupid h a s been working overtime these past couple of weeks and the only person not so busy is the stork. Because of the war and our accelerated programs, winter seems to be the season for turning fancies instead of spring. But one never can tell what spring holds in store. One of the highlights of the past week was Dorothy Wichers Claver and Bud's wedding. It was a beautiful affair and on the way out both bride and groom looked plenty happy. Can't say as I blame them. Harland Steele and Bruce Mikula, both ushers at the wedding, will soon be learning the steps to t h e "Lohengrin Bridal Chorus" with their to-be-brides, Evelyn Vermulm and Jane Fichtner. Elaine Mensinger is taking flight to Florida a f t e r exams to become Mrs. Del Boersma. Time waits f o r no one these days. Are you engaged? Well, watch out if you aren't, you might be by next week. Latest yes-women a r e Evelyn Reus and Margie Wiersma. No dates have been set f o r the weddings. But watch the next ANCHOR! Ruth Harmeling wears a fraternity pin as of Christmas vavation. Congratulations, k e e d s . Glenna — should you be in this column or n o t ? Ev Shiffner "Took the A T r a i n " to New Brunswick to see Jim off to war and Edith Wolbrink followed
suit but instead of a good-bye, welcomed her man home a f t e r a year and a half with the boys who "ride in f a m e or go down in flame" over Germany. ^ Two Lootenants f o r m e r l y privates in the A.S.T.P. U n i t here at Hope, came back for a revisit to see their old Alma Mater — I don't know whether they saw the college or not but I know they saw a lot of two lucky gals, Bobbie Bilkert and Lou Voss. Camp Wheeler and Fort Meade exist on the m a p f o r them now. Marian Reus can t wait f o r a month to pass when Chris will be able to leave Kalamazoo where he has just been transferred to the V-12 unit at Western State. You lucky girl, you! If anyone w a n t s to know the best approach ^ h e n asking a fellow to a party ask Rozzie Scholten. If he doesn't answer immediately, throw a shoe at him. If anyone found any grey matter outside Van Vleck, please return to Miss Nolan a f t e r exams. She lost it a couple of nights ago when the ice was extra slippery and she wants it back. If anyone can beg, borrow, or steal the record, "Orte N e a t Ball," please report to Ronnie Finlaw. Prices are good. Bye for now, chilluns — What's i f ? Tell it to the Whoozit.

She's not the least bit tough on us." We talk so much about Youth's place in the post-war world, and that Youth should have a say in civic, national, and international affairs — right here is an excellent opportunity for the women of the dormitories to train themselves in self-government and so prove themselves worthy to assume much greater responsibilities later.

Dorms Can B« Wonderful When Some Girl's Man Comes Back To'The States ^
Maybe you wouldn't believe it unless-you saw it — thirty or forty girls so interested in another girl's phone call — kind of a silly sight for eleven o'clock at night. There's a great deal of closeness in a dorm like ours; and ever}' once in awhile this human kindness shows up. You never realize it until something happens as it did last night. You're sitting drinking cokes and gabbing, or cramming as the mood moves you. Outside the corridor lights have been put out for the night, and everything is one big| shadow. Suddenly the sharp ring of the telephone breaks the silence, 1 and your mental process halts while
you listen and hope it's going to be your buzzer that will ring. A girl's name is shrieked in the same thrilled, insistent way. ' She lives down by the stairs, and her man is back in the states again. In a couple of seconds there is a scuffling and a hurrying down the hall from every direction. You stick your head out the door, and think, "Well, for pity sake, why is everybody so nosey?" Who wants to have a whole lot of people around the first time in two years. You hear his voice. Two years, you think, packed with a life time of longing — as you add another pair of scuffling feet to the corridor. You stand out-

side the booth, and notice the people around you. Some with knitting in their hands, towels wrapped around freshly shampoed hair, one energetic individual chins herself on a doorway. You hear things like — "Where is he, Florida?" . . . "Shhh" . . . "How long has it been?" Some are explaining, some look around in amazement at such a silly sight. Yet even they wear that expression of interest mixed with a little tension. Maybe it's curiosity for some, it's a chance for freshmen to be out of their rooms anyway. Then the door opens and you can feel a room brimful of excitement as she says simply, "Mrs. K., may I go home in two hours?" And even breathing stops as Mrs. K. hesitates and you hear her say, "Of course you can." And the "my dear," is lost in a whoop that goes up. "Isn't it exciting?" . . . "What did he s a y ? " . . . "What did she s a y ? " . . . "Was she crying?" . . . "Is he coming a f t e r h e r ? " There is no aloofness to such demonstrations of feeling. There are eyes full of — well, full, and hearts that go out in understanding. You see, that's because that telephone call wasn't just hers, it wasn't even just her man that called. It belonged to every girl in the dorm. It belonged to me, and I lived her happiness for just a minute as I squeezed her arm and walked back to the quiet and aloneness of my room. Turning out the light, I thought, of the feeling of closeness there is when something good happens to one of us. I snuggled my nose a little farther into the pillow and breathed the last of my prayer, "maybe mine will be next."
The Gay Nineties Club a t the Tavern on the comer of 8th am Central was ablaze with lights anc action Saturday night, the 28th of January, when Sigma Sigma presented "Gaslight Fantasies of '46." The first nighters arrived at seventhirty for dinner preceding the program. Guests of honor were the Mr. and Mrs. Milton Hinga of West Twelfth St., and the Mr. and Mrs. Albert Lampen of East Fourteenth St. Celebrities present at the opening night were Rosanna Atkins, Owen Koeppe, Mary Liz Aldrich, Thomas Boslooper, Barbara Tazelaar, Dick Hine, Elsie Parsons, Ray MacDonald, Mary Lou Hemmes, Roy Zwemer, Betty De Vries, Robert Burton, Elaine Bielefeld, Kenneth Steketee, Ruth Joldersma, Walter Krins, Natalie Bosman, Robert Chard, Doris Frederick, Bob Danhoff, Phyllis Barense, Robert Spaulding, Lois Hospers, Walter Groenewoud, Mary McLean, J o h n Parsons, Lou Jonkman, Gene Van Tamelen, Gwen Lemmen, Louis Brooks, Kay Steketee, Ted Boeve, Norma Vader, Bob Bennett, Norma Vander Wiere, James Yuk, Marge Lucking, Bob Boelkins, Joyce Sibly, John Smallegan, Betty Visscher, Bruce Vander Klupp, Virginia Hemmes, Tim Harrison, Carol Jean Hermance and Russ Cloetingh. The decorations carried out the Victorian theme. The door and two murals on the wall had red crepe paper curtains with a yellow fringe. Two figures on the wall were reconverted into a Floridora Girl dressed in aqua and white and a waiter in a tuxedo. Each table had a kerosene lamp in the center with place cards made of canes and parasols.
Kay Steketee rolled in on "A Bicycle Built f o r Two." They hiked off just in time to let the audience hear the famous Barber Shop Quartet, composed of Betty DeVries, Marge Lucking, Ginny Hemmes, and Mary Lou Hemmes, singing "Clementine." Tears filled the eyes of the spectators at the close of the song. (Tears of laughter.) Elsie Parson strutted on t h e stage and chose her "strawberry blond," Mary Liz Aldrich, to dance with while "The Band Played On." Since it was getting quite hot, a change of scene was requested and so "By the Sea" was slowly played as Natalie Bosman in a man's ancient bathing suit, saw and acquainted herself with Freddie Fredricks in an equally ancient bathing suit With a flash of lights and laughter, the six Floridora girls came on. They wore dresses in full flowing skirts with blouses and bonnets. The 18th century never saw such a performance, I'm sure. Elsie Parsons followed in a little melodramatic scene where she wept buckets while Taz played "She's More to Be Pitied Than Censured." Ginny Hemmes, after having slightly too much of something, portrayed a characteristic state of mind in just such a situation with i background of music playing 'The Doors Swing In, the Doors Swing Out." Then the chorus left the Bowery and the audience was left to the mercy of their own entertainment for the rest of the evening. The curtain came down on the successful first Sorosis party of '45. Here's to many more just ike it!
The floor show opened with the Headquarters for.... entrance of eight couples, in oldfashioned costumes singing "East ROBLEE, AIR-STEP Side, West Side," accompanied by AND BUSTER BROWN Barbara Tazelaar at the piano.

The Kibitzer by Viv Dykema Fritz Crisler of Michigan is already looking ahead to post-war sports with a plan to increase college sports. He wants to make "athletics for all" a reality by having sports weekends with games such as football for lighter players, soccer, rugby, and other seasonal games as well as the main games. Competition in about twenty sports instead of ten with a limit for freshmen and an intramural program to back up the plan would increase the opportunity for students to participate in competitive sports. Crisler's major problem now is where will the money come from ? The old maxim thai the early bird catches the worm is being proved by a team from Tennessee coached by Mauer. Last summer basketball prospects started practice sessions from 0:15 to 7:31) in the morning. The extra drills are paying off now, for the team has won nine out of its ten games. Hockey fans can still see Karl Siebert in the National Hockey League. After fourteen years of professional playing, Siebert is now with the Detroit Red Wings. In a game last week he made two quick goals in the final period to help defeat the Boston Bruins, and also to prove that his career on the ice is not finished. The Petersen classic, bowling's highest paid competition, began last Saturday. For the 1,728 sharpshooters, the next sixteen days will determine who will receive the top prize of $5,100 out of the total $43,200 which will be paid. That's really something to aim for. At the meeting in February, the major league baseball officials will probably discuss the duties of and possible candidates for the position of commissioner. It is doubtful whether there will be an election yet. War Mobilization Chief James Byrnes was suggested as a possible candidate, and several baseball officials approved. However, he says that he wouldn't even consider it. Frick of the National League is also a candidate. Ray Mangrum played the best games in his golfing career and set a new record for the course as he won the Tucson Open with a score of 2<»8 for 72 holes. Mangrum pocketed the first prize of $1,000. Byron Nelsr.M was penalized twice, and came in second with 261). Baseball is going ahead with its plans for Spring training. The training sites have been selected, and the tentative dates for beginning drills have been set. Indiana seems to be the most popular state, for six teams have picked training camps there. The earliest starting date is March 7, when batterymen for the Senators will begin limbering up. Most of the other clubs are scheduled to start around the fifteenth of March. The President has given baseball the go-ahead sign for the 11)45 season. The only restriction was that it shouldn't interfere with the war. He said that he didn't think any healthy young man should be playing baseball in these times, and club owners say that they think there will be enough material to put worthwhile teams on the field. The big basketball game of the weekend was the Illinois-Iowa clash. However, at the time this was written, the game had not been played. It's possible that Iowa still remains unbeaten and leader of the league. It is also possible that Illinois defeated Iowa, which would mean Iowa and Ohio would tie for the lead. Flash: The New York Yankee ball club has been sold for $2,800,000 to a group of men composed of Larry MacPhail, Dan Topping, and Del Webb. Kd Barrow will remain active as chairman of the board, and Joe McCarthy as manager. Barrow was the general manager and president of tlu* Yankee d u b for 24 years. The other American League owners will probably welcome the new owners with unanimous approval. The deal was not forced and had been on the fire for about a year.

H a p p e n e d T h a t M a d e t h e W a r m t h Inside D i e Pat and David were one of those couples that were just made for each other. She had soft ashblonde hair and warm brown eyes; his hair was brown and wavy, and his eyes a deep blue. They had graduated from college together. Pat worked in the office of a large publishing company. David was just getting a good start in radio work when his call came. Pat wrote to him every night and went to see him once. She liked to send him cookies and fudge and once in awhile a snapshot of herself. On his first furlough he brought her a lovely diamond and they announced their engagement. That was in April. In August he had another furlough — the last before he went overseas. They had a wonderful time and all too soon it was his last day. They drove out through the country and stopped at a little town where there was a carnival. They rode on the broken-down merry-goround. threw baseballs at the clown in back of the sheet, drank pink lemonade and ate peanuts. David made the bell ring at the strength thermometer and Pat chose the prize — a funny little figure of a clown who was crying. David did it again and won a jungle hat which thrilled him. Then they climbed a little hill and spread out their picnic lunch. Pat laughed at David's jungle hat and gave him a long green fern for a feather to put in it. He stuck it in the band and let it fall across the front of the hat. Pat took a picture of him. Finally their day was over and David went back to camp and then overseas. Pat kept the funny picture in her wallet to remember their last day together. But she didn't need a picture. She felt an amazing warmth and closeness to David. Nobody would ever guess there were 3,000 miles between
them. It make her the cheeriest girl around the office. As she typed sometimes she'd let her mind wander across the miles, and a faint smile would come to her lips as she thought of him. During lunch hour she often read his last letter over again. If she didn't get them too often she didn't worry; she knew he'd write when he could. One day as she was typing Pat thought she saw a shadow pass over her paper. She looked up and no one was there, but something had happened. A cold chill went down her spine. Softly she whispered, "David," but she had lost that close feeling. All the warmth between them was gone. At first she thought she didn't love him any more, and then she knew. She knew as if someone had come and told her — something had happened to David. The other girls in the office were distressed at Pat's morbidness during the next week. They tried to tell her it was imagination, that things don't happen like that. Friday night they insisted she go to the movies with them. When the news came, there were several close-ups of soldiers in action. Pat sat forward on her seat and grabbed the next girl's arm. "That's David," she breathed. It was David. It was him in a hat camouflaged with leaves. He looked like he did in the picture she had taken of him at the carnival. She sat for a long minute after it was over, and then she left. She ran down the street toward home. It was a long way and when she got there, she was worn out, exhausted. She stumbled into the house and found it — the telegram. She didn't have to read it — she knew. "Regret to inform you . . . missing in action."
By Edna May Richards The Big Three meeting which is supposed to come up soon will have several big questions before it. Some of these unsettled questions are. Where shall the boundaries of the Reich be fixed, how soon should purely German governments be permitted. and what should be done with German Industry? How soon will the Big Three of the European war become the Big Four?

Hungary, last of Germany's military satellites, changed sides in the war last week. In Moscow Marshal Klimenti Voroshilov (signing for the United States and Britain, as well as for the Soviet Union) granted an armistice to the Hungarian Provisional National Government. By its terms, Hungary agreed to: 1. Furnish eight divisions to fight against Germany; 2. Pay reparations of $300,000,000 (in goods); 3. Renounce the territorial spoils of her six-year cruise abroad Adolph Hitler's pirate ship.

Our casualty list makes unpleasant reading, but perhaps if it were brought to our attention more frequently, we would not so easily become over optimistic. Total United States casualties in three years of war now total 663,859. This is more than two and a half times the United States casualties of World War 1. Heaviest Army casualties were during the concentrated and furious period of the Normandy invasion. D-day also marked the beginning of a sharp ascent which continued to mount as the fighting advanced closer to Germany's borders.
