Hope-Albion Tilt Told From Viewpoint of Player

HOW PLAYERS FEEL Rewarding the large crowd which filled Carnegie gym with a very spectacular and thrilling game, the Hope varsity basketeers won a conference victory f r o m Albion last F r i d a y 24-21. I t was the first successful s t a r t in three a t t e m p t s by the Schoutenmen, and following the contest a more t h a n hopeful student body awaited the next three M. I. A.

This story will a t t e m p t to sketch the Albion g a m e f r o m the players' side of it. "Ten grim and determined young men met in the dressing-room while the preliminary was still being played.

'Let's watch t h e Freshmen play a while, we're early.' Then as the f r o s h won, the confidence nece s s a r y for victory came to the varsity men. "Well, we went out to shoot a f e w baskets f o r w a r m i n g up. The gym was hot and it didn't take much running around to work up a sweat. Then J a c k called us off the floor for a final talk. 'Your man is number 5, watch him closely a s he's dangerous,' 'take your time,' 'make your passes good,' and 'let's bring home the bacon' were ringing through our heads. We know that t h e entire college was behind us, waiting patiently f o r a victory. "Howard drew the assignment for t h e first tip, but the play didn't click. Albion began milling about with the ball. T h a t little forward Cox was watching was plenty f a s t . And could t h a t Gray play ball. But we were able to stop them, and were cheered on by the shouts of our fellows. We had" quite a lead but Albion began catching up with us. Then the bell sounded f o r the half. We were ahead 16-10.

How m a n y Hope College people have had the above question asked of them during their few years of " 'teen-age" activity? When a t home, or when attending school here, students a r e approached with opportunities to do work in Sunday Schools and in churches. Oftentimes t h e plea f o r aid goes unanswered. Sometimes it is m e t with a half-hearted response which soon dilutes into a lame excuse f o r non-participation. Here is our student body, specifically enrolled in an institution fostering the spirit of religious living. Religious activities a r e encouraged on every hand. But to w h a t degree do these helpful tendencies affect the New Chapel here, is marked by its world without our campus?

ENROLLMENT GROWS The s t a r t of the second semest e r finds the total of 539 students a t Hope College entering upon various schedules of study with firm intentions of bettering their records of the previous period of enrollment. With t h e fever and worry of e x a m week a t h i n g of the past, t h e regular routine of studies will soon resume its customary swing. There a r e several new courses offered this F e b r u a r y which have not been on the lists before, while other subjects are being replaced in the curriculum. The new courses include a "Theoretical and Physical Chemistry" in Dr. G. Van Zyl's d e p a r t m e n t This is a t h r e e hour course, intended primarily f o r pre-medical stud e n t s and those specializing in chemistry. Another subject, "Physical Chemistry Measurements," accompanies the aforementioned course and is required of students, specializing in chemistry. I t m a y be elected by premedic students and while m o s t of the medical schools do not require the course f o r entrance they do recommend it highly. In Dr. E.

E v e r y t r u e Hopeite's heart was warmed last F r i d a y evening when he saw our basketeers perform so valiantly and victoriously against our court visitors. We are proud of our athletes, proud of their skill and proud of their eagerness to use it f o r the glory of old Hope. "Go thou and do likewise" is the moral. At the game a remnant of seven or eight musicians functioned as a band. They succeeded remarkably well in providing intergame e n t e r t a i n m e n t and inspiration f o r the spectators. They made the evening more complete and their efforts were praised by ail. But results would be infinitely b e t t e r if all of Hope's musicians cooperated in making the band a full-size aggregation. It is estimated t h a t a t least t h i r t y fellows can play some band i n s t r u m e n t . Every one of them should be a band member. We need t h e band at every home g a m e and it would be splendid if it could accompany the team when we play our next-door neighbors in the " f u r n i t u r e city." The delinquency of t h e musicians is pardonable, however, if the student body fails to do its share. Band m e m b e r s f u r nish their own i n s t r u m e n t s ; certainly those who receive the entertainment should contribute the rest. Music, a director, and even uniforms are a small expense f o r a group of our size. "You can't have the rainbow unless you have t h e rain." Enjoyment must be deserved. If we all like the band as much as we say we do, let's dig down and,—show it. The result will be personal satisfaction, a real band, better games and a satisfied college.

YE LADIES OF THE "COURT" Girls' Athletics are f o r the first time edging t h e i r way into the activities of Hope College. F o r years t h e r e has been much agitation concerning t h e i r lack. Girls now have t h e use of the gymnasium on Wednesdays and a very commendable schedule f o r them has been worked out. If alone f o r t h e sake of her own physical good, it is expected t h a t every co-ed will push this new e n t e r p r i s e by being there a t every practice and by playing whether she has done so before or not. It is an opportunity to show t h a t you are not alone a "kicker," but a supporter, if the chance is offered. The result will be extremely beneficial to the health, a good advertisement f o r the school, and all the energy formerly used in complaining will be directed to a pood purpose. Co-ed suffragettes—let's play basketball!

Even now, the three liners California, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, constitute the largest fleet of turbine-electric commercial ships in the world. Besides propelling these ships, electricity hoists freight, raises anchors, mans pumps, turns rudders, drives winches, and warps the vessels into their berths. It lights lamps, spins fans, operates elevators, cools and cooks food. Its magic touch is apparent on every deck. All electric equipment, above and below deck, is a product of General Electric.



The planning, produaion, and distribution of such equipment has been largely the responsibility of collegetrained men who are working with General Electric and who have aided in bringing these ships over the horizon. C O M P ANY,

Campus Library Adds Several 1 Dozen New Volumes To Shelves Have you glanced a t the shelves in the library lately? If you have not, look around the next time you are searching something new to read, for t h e college has j u s t recently purchased an interesting collection of books. Eugene O'Neill's i complete works including "The Hairy Ape," "Anna Christie," "Boyond the Horizon," "Desire Under the Elms," and many other well known d r a m a s will add a bit more interest to the drama courses. There are several interesting additions to the English section. "Life of Shakespeare," by J . V. Adams, "Prose Plays," by William Vaughn Moody, recent collections of poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay, Amy Lowell, F r o s t and Robinson, and four volumes on verse and prose by Masefield a r e a few of the books outstanding in this line. "My Antonia," by Willa Cather, "Miss Lulu Bett," by Zona Gale, and "Dodsworth," by Sinclair Lewis make the novel section more interesting. Several of the new books f o r supplementary reading in history stress art and architecture, and the debating t e a m s will find aid in the four volumes selected f o r them. "Plant Physiology," by Palladin and Dodd's "Essentials of Human Embryology" are two of the contributions to the science department. In all it is a most admirable selection — one of which our library may be proud.

Anchor Staff Meet The new Anchor Staff as listed on page two of this issue will meet between the hours of 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday (date of publication of this paper) at the Anchor room in the basement of Winant's Library. The staff will call at the room at any time during this hour when they are able to do so. News tips will be received, and assignments will be given out. An attractive inducement to attendance will be an ex'nbit of a worldwide collection of newspapers. These papers, printed in all tongues, compare interestingly with American papers.



Howard Hayes, who has had ten years' experience in Y. M. work in Manchuria, told of his work in Y. M. C. A. last week. He emphasized the difficulties encountered by a leader facing the opposing forces of Communism. He opened the meeting with the question: What should be our attitude toward Communism as a Christian? "Many young men," he told the boys, "are won over by the cause of Communism and lose all their interest in Y. M. work." Mr. H a y e s was an excellent speaker, and gave some worthwhile thoughts to be sandwiched in between exam prepara| tion. Richard Nesink played "Im| promptu" as a piano solo.

The activities of tne f r a t e r n i t i e s were limited during the past week. An ominous silence seemed to pervade the various houses. It proved to be the quiet before the storm, as a f t e r exams the boys were a s boisterous as ever. Circulating reports of week-end trips, etc., prove that a good many boys used the vacation between semesters to good advantage.

A great deal of excitement was stirred up a t the Cosmopolitan House by a telephone call from points E a s t . It proved to be only Harry Friesema calling up to have his spats forwarded to New York as he had forgotten to t a k e them along. This was done post haste! The Emersonian House h a s been singularly quiet now t h a t Larry (Noisy) De Cook has gone with the Glee Club. Herm Janssen wrote from Portland, Michigan, "The Glee Club boys of the Emersonians are paiticipating in physical nourishment to assure successful maintenance of the vocal cords." The departure of the Glee Club has decimated the ranks of the Praters. Their rivals in basketball look f o r easy victories now that Paul Nettinga is out of the line-up for a month. The F r a t e r s will miss the musicians, "Chuck" Van Dommelen and "Rudy" Nichols. The Knickerbockers had a waxing bee a t their house Saturday morning.
