H o p e College, H o l l a n d , M i c h i g a n , Febuary 1, 1928

Number 46















The annual oratorical contest of the M. 0 . L., which is one of the outstanding events of the year, will take place on Friday, March 2, 1928, at Albion with Miss Hazel Albers and Mr. Jacob Felon representing Hope College.

h ^

Miss Albers is a member of the Senior class and will take p a r t in the women's contest. She has prepared a very interesting oration and is progressing splendidly in her deliverance of it. As a speaker she has a very pleasing personality. Hope College has a right to entertain great hopes for some honors from her. Mr. Jacob Felon, a member of the Junior class, will compete in the men's contest with a very strong oration. He has a wellmodulated voice and has already gained for himself the reputation of being a fine orator. Mr. Felon is working hard on his address and a t present is being coached three times a week. Hope Feared a s Rival A great deal of confidence is placed in these two contestants. Hope College has every year carried off some honors in the M. 0 . L. contest and is looking to the orators of this year to'add also to the laurels obtained in the past. Much credit f o r these victories is due to the untiring efforts of Dr. Nykerk who very ably dees his share in coaching them. Dr. Nykerk has f o r the past number of years coached the contestants competing in the annual oratorical contest and is largely responsible for making such excellent Hope orators. His m a n y years of experience in the field of oratory -have made him an authority on that subject.

The trial and tribulation of every semester is here—exam week. The midnight oil has been burned to n pitiful degree by everybody in a final attempt to cram some knowledge into a clouded brain. From "Cum Laude" seniors to uninitiated Freshmen, they all have been working. The nervous strain is particularly noticeable among the poor Frosh, who haven't as yet tasted the venom of college exams. Many of them are trembling m their spiritual languor because Prof. Ilager announced that his exam f o r Freshmen would be the hardest he had ever given. ^However, they can take comfort in the thought that exams, hke initiations, a r e not half what they're cracked up to be. All kidding aside, exams are really tragic ordeals. The instructors and victims are both to be pitied because they all abhor them f o r one reason or another. The only ones to profit oy them, as f a r as we can see, are the Bookstores who take in an ext r a shekel or two from blue-book sales.

Christ—"The Son of God"—or "A Good Man"—was the topic discussed at the Y. W. C. A. meeting Thursday night, by the president, Helen zander. These are the views of the Fundamentalists and Modernists respectively. Helen said that we may think the Modernistic view of Christ, that he was merely a good man, is quite recent, but that even in the Scriptures we find there are two types—those who accepted Christ a s the Son of God and those who did not believe in Him.

The Chapel exercises held on Wednesday morning, J a n u a r y 25 were of a somewhat different nature. Dr. Dimnent, noting the lack of interest, interrupted the regular exercises, and tried to impress upon the students the value of going to Chapel. He stated t h a t the view had been expressed t h a t there should be more variety in the program of the exercises. In reply to this he said t h a t simple services draw us closer to God than elaborate programs. Among other things, Dr. Dimnent added t h a t everyone possesses religion and that people often try to get God through external means instead of through direct approach. He recommended reading the "Christian Intelligencer" of the month of February so as to make ourselves acquainted with the opinions of other colleges in regard to chapel

Toleration was the subject which held the interest of the Y. M. C. A. group in their weekly discussion on Tuesday evening. Harold Hesselink spoke by way of s t a r t i n g the discussion and he limited his thoughts more closely to religious toleration. Emphasis was placed upon the necessity of respecting others' opinions. Unity in any organization is achieved, not by absolute unity in thought, but by kindly forbearance when opinions clash. i h e appropriate topic stimulated a lively discussion a f t e r the main talk of the evening. Because of the wide scope oi the word and its meaning it was applied to many different aspects of life, ending up in mention of personal toleration in the walks of daily life. I t is fitting that a subject of this kind should be discussed by young men because of the age old tendency of youth towards intolerance, both in regard to others' opinions and in respect to authority. Talk and interchange of opinion formed only a p a r t of the meeting. Song service and prayer preceded the discussion.

The war cry of B a m u m was "bigger and better." So it is with the Drama Class of this year. Former classes have set a very high precedent which will be very difficult to surpass, but it is f e l t by the members of this year's class that their production of the play, "The Youngest," to be presented Tuesday and Wednesday, February 7 and 8, will go f a r toward equalling and even surpassing the work of former years. This play, "The Youngest," was written by a contemporary dramatist, Phillip Barry. I t is a threeact comedy based upon the incongruities of the modern American home life. This play was first introduced to the American public in 1925 when it met with a g r e a t success in the Gaiety Theatre in New York City. The lines are very well taken and the bubbling wit and humor is interspersed with some more serious thought. Cast Carefully Chosen The cast was chosen with scrupulous care by the teacher of the class, Mrs. Durfee. The p a r t s are all very well taken. The male lead falls upon Mr. Kenneth Moek. Mr. Moek is a man whose a r t i s t r y is well known in other circles on Hope's campus. The female lead is taken by Miss Christine Webb. The difficult role of the mother is taken very successfully by Miss Mariett De G r o o t Miss De Groot is not unknown in dramatic circles to Hope audiences, having played very WOULD-BE T E A C H E R S STRIVE successfully in other student pro* TO GET IN PRACTICE ductions.

In the days when ships were made cf wood and men of iron, it took drastic steps to keep them from exercising. Professional fighters fought fifty rounds unconcerned, but today ten rounds is the limit because the contestants receive only a paltry million for their trouble. They refuse to train strenuously. The only over-trained athlete today is a flag-pole setter. Humanity objects even to walking. If a motor vehicle cannot be obtained, a bicycle is secured so that the rider can at least sit down on the job.

The rich man gets his exercise by knocking out his pipe or by taking a walk and then, fearing overexertion, he is accompanied by hi1; private secretary whose duty it in to keep all menacing mosquitoes from ruining his employer's schoolgirl complexion.

A few weeks ago Mr. Wackerbaith decided that he was expanding too much. Upon consulting the doctor he was told that Voorhees Hall was an excellent dieting house. In summing up his adventure he says, "I like the Dean, I like the Hall, the food is all it is cracked up to be, and as for the inmates, I take them as a matter of course." Congratulations, we admire your taste.

Have you been wondering about Hazel Nienhuis' strange behavior last week? Don't be alarmed! It was only reaction from the preceding week-end. You know Bill Bonnema was in town, and incidentally in Voorhees Hall occasionally. » • • Dr. Nykerk defines the word "surprise" in his scrap-book as (1) Rockefeller receiving the announcement that he has made another dollar; (2) unity in chapel hymns. Dr. Dimnent's connotation of the word is (1) "AH" employees on our $1,000,000 chapel busily occupied; (2) a straight answer to a crooked question in Economics. »

A M a r v e l of National Defense From this 2^-acre deck, Uncle Sam's battle planes can now leap into action—sure of a landing place on their return, though a thousand miles from shore. This marvel of national defense was accomplished—and duplicated —when the airplane carrier, U.S.S. Saratoga, and her sister ship, U.S.S. Lexington, were completely electrified. In each, four General Electric turbine-generators deliver,

combined, 180,000 horsepower to the propellers—enough to drive the ship at 33 knots (39 miles an hour), —enough to furnish light and power for a city of half a million people.

Where All Sportsmen Meet

The design and construction of the electric equipment for the U. S. S. Saratoga and the U.S.S. Lexington, to which college-trained men contributed in great measure, exemplify the part General Electric plays in promoting the welfare of the nation.
