EDITOR'S DESK Mousetraps and Constitutions " P r o g r e s s " is one of the sacred cows in our American culture. We are a nation dedicated to the building of the better mousetrap, and even to improving the mouse before capture. But progress, unlike opportunity, rarely knocks. It often consists of myriad details and hidden achievements. Recently, the Anchor carried an article concerning the proposed revision of the Student Council Constitution. The headline over this article may have been misleading, f o r classes, as such, can neither lose nor gain power through the proposed revision. Elsewhere in this issue, there is the first of a series of articles written by m e m b e r s of the constitution committee of the council. These articles should help to clear up a few of the misunderstandings t h a t may have arisen. It may also prevent f u r t h e r misconceptions f r o m arising in the minds of the student body. Anyone who has taken the trouble to read the present document can see why a revision is in order. In fact, it is more than in order . . . it is a necessity. The t e r m s of the revision is m a t t e r f o r the student body as a whole to decide. But before f o r m i n g any pre-conceived or prejudicial notions, we would suggest t h a t every student read a copy of the proposed revision, and then think f o r himself. The revision should stand or fail on its merits alone — not on what some think it m a y do, but upon what it will do. Constitutional revision always involves those myriad details we mentioned before. A lot of mice are caught t h a t may never be noticed, but the m o u s e t r a p s do work. Many of these details may never be seen, nor should t h e y be. But let us not discard an idea simply because it h a s never been tried before. We too are m a k i n g progress we too are building better mousetraps. —R.A.W.

Puss-n-Boots When the buzzer sounded Dr. Dandy knew t h a t his experiment had been completed. More buzzes followed in quick succession conveying definite emotion. At the final blast which threatened to t e a r the device f r o m its moorings, old Dr. Dandy rose with a groan of effort f r o m his well-worn chair in the outer office and scratched his bald pate with a "Dandy Lab. Supply House" card. "Alright, Miss Boots, I'm coming, I'm coming." He muttered under his breath. With a sigh of bored habit he pushed open the door to the embalming room. It was a dingy looking old chamber t h a t had seen better days as a coach room. Its walls were lined with shelves containing pickled bull-frogs to bottled e a r t h w o r m s and it smelled strongly of Formaldehyde. A dim light struggled through the dusty window panes over the snake cages to reveal the large disecting table in the center of the room. Upon that table sat a large cat, a r a t h e r normal looking torn, not very different from the many others t h a t Dandy Lab. Supply House picked up in alleys to send to its customers. The only abnormal f e a t u r e in this particular cat was the m a n n e r in which it sat leering at Miss Boots as much as to say, " S a y , you cute little blue-eyed kitten, won't you come over here and cuddle a little?" As a m a t t e r of f a c t it did open its mouth to speak and instead of saying "Meow," as is customary f o r felines, it said in a low p u r r i n g

P e r h a p s it was this extraordinary behavior t h a t rendered Miss Boots speechless. She stood back in a corner looking f o r all the world like a blond little kitten — innocent blue eyes wide open in amazement. Dr. Dandy scratched his head again and rubbed his eyes. Finally Dr. Dandy come out of his dream and puffed in indignant tones. " W h a t is the meaning of speaking to my a s s i s t a n t with such licentiousness! M r . . . M r . . . " He f a l t e r e d . "Tom will do," said the cat demurely, and then added with an insolent yawn, "you stay out of this. Pop, its between me and blue eyes here. Get lost." Another lecherous wink f o r the p r e t t y Miss Boots who seemed to be flattered by he cat's attention and nearly jabbed herself with the hypodermic needle she still held in h e r hand. " H a r r u m p h ! Miss Boots. This specimen of Felis libyca domestica was incapable of speech when he was b r o u g h t here. Kindly explain this phenomenen," demanded the venerable Dr. Dandy who was not to be out-done by a common alley cat. "W-well," s t u t t e r e d Miss Boots. "I injected him with the new f o r m ula and the next minute he w a s g e t t i n g f r e s h with me. I think something must be wrong with the f o r m u l a , " she offered weakly. " W r o n g b a b y ? " said the cat. "The only thing wrong is all the confab with old skin-head here. Let's get down to business, cat-nip, we've got places to go." He

languidly stretched a paw and beckoned. "Well, Tommy," she almost mewed. "I do think you're very cute, but Dr. Dandy doesn't let me off until 5:30." Being a " c a t a m o u r " at h e a r t , she found no difficulty in speaking to cats as if they were human. Many cat lovers do j u s t that. She had overcome the initial shock and was scartching Tom behind the ears. "Besides," she added. " I t would be r a t h e r difficult f o r me to walk fences and all. You being a cat and I " " P o o f ! " exclaimed Tom. "You h u m a n s a r e n ' t as s m a r t as you think you a r e .

" O u c h " she said. " A r e you sure this is meow meow m e o w ? " She licked her paw and began w a s h i n g her ears. "M e o w ? " " M e O W !

"We'll be seeing you — we're c a t t i n g o u t ! " Dr. Dandy scratched his head again as the two proud tails disappeared around the door. —J.E.H.

Saturday Night Roads covered with a slick film of ice caused by f r e e z i n g rain t h a t fell early S a t u r d a y m a d e it impossible f o r the Dutch to travel to Adrian f o r their scheduled basketball game t h a t night. When the postponed g a m e is played l a t e r in the season Adrian will be g r e a t l y strengthened by the addition of last years M.I.A.A. high point man Henry H u g h e s who w a s ineligible during the first semester of play this season and three other r e t u r n ing veterans. Since t h e Calvin g a m e on J a n uary 12, the Dutchmen have been able to chalk up only one victory against t h r e e losses. Going down to overwhelming d e f e a t a t the hands of Calvin, Hope picked up enough spirit a f t e r a weekend of rest to bounce back and whip a high powered ball club f r o m Michigan Normal. Then unable t o keep the essential spark the Dutch fell victim to both Kalamazoo and Manchester. H a v i n g lost M.I.A.A. contests to both Calvin and Kalamazoo, Hope was forced to drop f r o m a tie f o r first to third place in t h e conference. Calvin is now in first place with Hillsdale second and Hope third. Against Kalamazoo the f a v o r e d Dutch were both t h w a r t e d in their rebound a t t e m p t s and unable to hit when t h e y held possession of the ball. Doug Steward, H o r n e t center, effectively concentrated his efforts on keeping Hope rebound ace Paul Benes a w a y f r o m the boards while other Kazoo men g r a b b e d the rebounds. In scoring Whitey Riemers m a lead the Dutch with fifteen points while the Hornets had f o u r men h i t t i n g over his number. Hope s t a r t e d the g a m e by bolting to a 10-2 lead. Then hindered by rebounding and shooting troubles along with the consequences of m a n y personal fouls, the Dutch were forced to concede the lead to Kazoo f o r the r e m a i n d e r of the contest which ended in a 76-63 victory f o r the Hornets. Traveling to Manchester, Indiana, during exam week Hope displayed much smoother f o r m and well coordinated ball playing t h a n demons t r a t e d earlier a g a i n s t Kalamazoo. Again in this g a m e personal fouls h u r t tremendously a s both Benes and Riemersma had to sit out t h e critical closing moments of t h e contest which could have spelled victory. With Benes out p a r t of the first half Manchester w e n t ahead to take the lead at half time. Then coming back in the second half with a fired attack, Hope immediately took control of t h e backboards and s t a r t e d p u t t i n g in poins. With f o u r minutes to go in t h e g a m e Hope had narrowed t h e Manchester lead to three points. Finally a t tempting to r u s h t h e g a m e on a Manchester t e a m desiring t o play it cool, the Dutch opened themselves u p to several Manchester plays which set Hope behind eight points a t the end of the contest, the final score being 91-83.
