Students at Martha Berry college in Georgia may dance only waltzes and quadrilles; have dates of only an hour and a half duration on Sunday, may not have radios in their rooms nor enter into competitive athletics with other colleges. Now that's what we'd call decidedly out-Hopeing Hope. •

Olivet college Friday, J a n u a r y 17,





of the Michigan Intercollegiate Association of College Editors, recently organized by William 0 . Uraneck, Olivet Echo editor. Publisher Frank Sparks of the Grand Rapids Herald was the principal speaker at the opening session following which the editors held a private discussion relative to making the college newspaper a more effective agency in the moulding of the intellectual attitudes of the campus.

Notier, Vander Werf Address Bio-Clubbers Pre-medic Victor Notier took a wide look a t a broad subject and then plunged into an extensive discussion of "The History of Man and the Microbe" for the benefit of less clear sighted members of the Biology club (in regular meeting assembled). Jenner, Pasteur, anthrox, diptheria — all passed in their classical significance and in distinguished contrast to the armchair and fire-side scientists who have inevitably followed. Medic Vic was followed on the program by his colleague of the distilling tubes, Calvin Vander Werf, who refluxed carefully for the remainder of the meeting over the "Orgin of Ray Therapy". Cal pointed out that the Nobel prize has gone t i each oT the original investigators of the ultra-violet, X, and radium rays, and that this year a fourth worker in this interesting field has been so honored. The therapeutic value of each type of ray was stressed. Discussions followed each paper.

If you go over all the activities that a student engaged in during the week before, the chances are that he would be as much surprised as you to see what he did or didn't do with his leisure time. Almost one hour every day is spent with no physical or mental enterprise He may wander around the house, catch up on sleep, or get into one of those old-fashioned " bull-sessions" in which everything is discussed from instructors to "life".

Mrs. Durfee, Voorhees Girls Give 55 Fellows "Good Evening Well Spent" "Mrs. Durfee and the girls of Voorhees Hall invite you to attend a Conversation Party in Voorhees Hall on Friday, J a n u a r y thirtyfirst, at eight o'clock." Fifty-five baffled lads received this announcement in the mail last week, accompanied by no name whatsoever. At eight Friday night they poured into the dormitory, each looking about expectantly for a handsome maiden to leap over and snatch him. This, however, did not happen immediately; chairs were set for the "Conversation" game, during which everyone talked with everyone else, and then other games were played. "Who's the Reason?" By the time the hour had arrived to stream into the dining room for food, many of the fellows had met their dates (or f a t e s ) ; but some, even a f t e r the last game had been played and the final song had been sung, were still querying, "Who's responsible for my being here?" Upon entering the dormitory, each guest was accosted by the friendly dean of women, together with an eager group of coeds whose sole aim in life seemed to be telling him that he should put his coat in the guest room, which is on the first floor of the building.

Chemistry Club Hears Vander Werf, De Witt The monthly meeting of the Chemistry club was held on January 15. Papers were delivered by Calvin Vander Werf and Bernard De Witt. The title of Mr. Vander Werf's paper was "Chemistry and Metabolism of the Brain." It was an interesting discussion of the chemical reactions which take place in the human brain, and of the compounds which make up the various parts of the brain. De Witt wrote on "Chemistry of Ammonia." This thesis was a survey of the organic and i n o r g a n i c c h e m i s t r y of ammonia and its commercial and practical applications.

Fraters, Knieks, v Tied For Lead As a result of last Monday's play the Knicks and F r a t e r s are tied f o r the lead with three victories and one defeat apiece. In the first game the Frosh "B" team had little difficulty in tripping the Emersonians 35-8. Rusticus for the Frosh and Faber for the Emersonians were high men with 7 and 4 points respectively. The F r a t e r s and Independents engaged in a rough and tumble affair with the F r a t e r s on the long end of a 26-17 count. Papegaay and Douma were outstanding f o r their teams. In the final game the Knicks trampled the Addisons 38-10 with Van Ark leading the way with 14 counters. "Iron Man" Rusticus Isd the Addisons with six points.

Albion Comes Back Strong to Squeeze out One-Point Win

HOPE DEFEATS KAZOO QUINTET IN LEAGUE TILT Three Overtimes Required Before Hope Attack Functions



In one of the most thrilling games the M. I. A. A. race has ever witnessed, Hope took Kalamazoo's measure in three hotly contested overtime periods to the tune of 52-43. Hope r a n g up 11 points in the third overtime to snow under Coach Barnard's charges. Last year Kazoo held Hope to one overtime period. This year the Hornets seemed more determined than ever to win. At one time during the second half, trailing by 14 points they gradually drew up to knot the score at 37-87 all. Hope escaped defeat at this point when Survilla missed a basket on a sleeper play which would have meant the game. Van Zanden, Survilla Scrap The game was featured by the individual battle staged between Teed Van Zanden and Wally Survilla. Time and again both men showed sparkling performances. Teed should have left the game when he drew up with a bad case of charlcy-horse at the close of th > regulation game. He played along until the third overtime with only nerve keeping him going. Poppink and Thomas were the scoring aces for Hope. Poppink collected 18 points while Thomas got 12. Hope was very noticeably weak in the foul-shooting department while Kazoo excelled in this and stepped out in front several times because of their superior foulshooting ability. At the end of the first half it looked as if Hope would have an easy time of it. As a "Whole the first half was a duel affair and Hope left the floor leading 25-11. The second half was a different story. Kazoo led by Wally Survilla and Koestner tied the score and whittled down Hope's 14-point lead to 0. Good Bail Features Overtimes The overtime periods, especially the first and second, were marked by the very finest brand of basketball. Time and again both teams drew out in front only to lose the lead. In the final overtime it was all Hope. Poppink, Vande Velde, and Thomas all scored in the first minute of play. Survilla still trying desperately to lead his team to victory threw in a foul and later Barnes scored a foul shot but that ended any f u r t h e r Kazoo t h r e a t . Barber. Vande Velde and Thomas again scored in short order leaving a very bewildered Kazoo team at the short end of a 52-43 score when the final whistle sounded. Line-up: KAZOO FG. F. T.

Albion's Methodists climaxed ten minutes of spectacular shooting by nipping the Hingamen 38-37 in a conference game played a t the Armory, J a n u a r y 21. Both teams were neck and neck during the first half with a 16-14 lead showing for Hope a t the whistle. It was a mild first half leaving no one prepared for the hair-raising twenty minutes of the last half. Hope started the second half auspiciously enough by bouncing out to a ten-point lead with the count a t 33-23. Personal fouls began to take toll in the Hope ranks when Poppink and VandeVelde were forced to leave with four personals apiece. With these two men out of the way Albion suddenly "went to town." Seven minutes remained when Krouze, visiting center, dropped in two free throws to s t a r t the rally. Krouze, Daimitz, Vail, and Prettymen then tossed in 15 points while the best Hope could do was to get four. Rouman, visiting guard, made the deciding point when he tossed in a free throw with the score tied at 37 all and To seconds to play. Krouze and Prettyman led the Albion attack with 15 and 10 points apiece. Ken VandeVelde, although not the high scoring man, proved to bo the outstanding man on the court for Hope, counting 8 points. Don Thomas led the Hope scoring with 13 points.

ROBBERT IN FORM Running roughshod over the hapless Alma team, the Hope college quintet annexed its second conference victory in three starts, 46-17. The ' superior speed and height of the Hinga-coached men was too much f o r the Scots who have lost four straight conference frays. With Poppink, ace center, controlling the tip-off, the Orange and Blue lost little time in starting. Holding Alma to one point during the first ten minutes of play the Dutch r a n g up seven points, which was the closest the Scots came during the whole game. With Poppink and Thomas leading the offense, Hope swept into high gear and a t the intermission were leading 23-8. The second half was but a repetition of the first with both teams doubling their own score. Coach Hinga used his entire squad in the game as did the Alma mentor. The game was rough and at times sloppy. Each team collected 15 penalties of which Hope cashed in on 10 and Alma 7. Thomas and Poppink paced the winners with 15 and 16 points respectively, while Robbert turned in an outstanding floor game. Keglovitz and Block featured the Alma attack, the f o r m e r collecting five points.

Busy Season Faces Hope Debate Teams




(Continued from page 1, column 4)

John C. Hoekje, '06, registrar at Western State Teachers' college, Kalamazoo, Mich., was recently initiated into the Omega Chapter (University of Michigan) of Phi Delta Kappa, "Professional Fraternity in Education." While Phi Delta Kappa is primarily a graduate student f r a t e r nity, the constitution provides for the election to membership, upon approval by vote of the biennial district Conference (with not more than one dissenting vote), together with final approval by the executive committee, of "men engaged in the field of public education who, in the judgment of a local chapter, because of distinguished service rendered in the field of public education, merit membership in the organization." It so happens that he is the first, and thus far, the only man so chosen to membership. Membership includes educators both in the United States and in Canada. At present Jacob Kelder, also an alumnus of Hope, is president of the Omega chapter at the University.

programs, and an equal amount of time is spent in dancing. D e s p i t e t h e athletics-for-all movement, only a small percentage of the s t u d e n t body enter athletics strenuously. The average student spends six hours a week in light reading, such as newspapers and popular magazines. On the average, the student attends five movies every four weeks. This last statement, however, may vary considerably at Hope. Leisure Time Wasted W o r t h w h i l e extra-curricular activities do not threaten the average student's academic record. These aimless amusements affect it more seriously. But most regrettable and significant is the fact that the college itself provides no scheme of its own to encourage or train students in the productive use of leisure time. Certainly this important function for the benefit of the student body should be a duty of the college. With the cooperation of the students and the college authorities, this aimless waste of leisure time might be changed to constructive recreation.
