Bachelors Beware


By Beverly Joeckel S t a r t saving your money, girls! Be on your best behavior, fellows! For the week of February 9 to 14 is Dutch Treat Week at Hope College. Dutch Treat Week was inaugurated in 1950 and is now an established tradition. This is one week when the feminine population does all the asking and paying f o r dates, while the masculine counterparts just sit back and relax. One of the specially planned activities for this unique week is the Bachelor Bank. The bank itself is a large box to be found in Van Raalte Hall into which hopeful girls can place their names. The bachelors are twenty of t h e most eligible men on campus, f o u r from every fraternity, who will each draw a name from the box at a ceremony at 12:35 A.M. on Monday, the first day of Dutch Treat Week. The bachelors and the twenty lucky girls whose names have been picked will make use of donations of entertainment by merchants of Holland. Other highlights of the week include the faculty recital and the home basketball game and p a r t y on Valentine's Day. Judy Eastman and Carol Joelson, assisted by Lynne Feltham, Mary Decker, Adina Yonan, Carolyn Kleiber, Arlene Cizak, and Gail Friesma are organizing the program for the week.

Open Your Eyes Why don't you stop today and take a good look at your calendar? This little mechanism t h a t puts delight in the eyes of advertising executives reads F e b r u a r y 6. Think over the importance of this date f o r a few minutes, especially if you couldn't remember what day It was f o r t h a t quiz this morning. Do you realize t h a t j u s t four months f r o m today is J u n e 6 and without doubt the day several of Hope's young ladies are looking f o r w a r d to with starry eyes? And t h e rest of us too, f o r behind us then will be finals, perhaps f o r t h e last time. Now look back f r o m today. Two weeks ago we were heaving sighs over our last exams and their poignant and perhaps painful memories f o r us. But besides the memories of hours spent on h a r d seats and the m a r k s they gave us, did our classes and e x a m s do a n y t h i n g else f o r us ? P e r h a p s if they didn't, we should wonder why — f o r certainly past experience should govern our f u t u r e actions. We are still barely two weeks into this semester. Why not let it be the one in which we strive f o r excellence? Surely there is no shame in doing one's best, either academically or in other fields. Can't we all admit t h a t resolutions are in order to get more variety into our lives, to develop an interest in things outside the world of Hope College? Last week there was a m a n on campus who once again emphasized f o r us the danger signals appearing in American life. Dr. Harold Ehrensperger, in speaking of the f a c t o r s which isolate us f r o m our fellow men, and make our lives empty, sounded reminiscent of Eric Fromm and Rolla May. Have we absorbed these men's ideas ? Are we doing anything to put life into our existance? We need to see t h a t it is important not only to live in the world of Hope College but in the larger one as well. We can say t h a t we are being educated, but merely going to classes, studying and living in and for this restricted campus is no guarantee of a complete education. The fully educated person is one who is conversant, familiar with, and has an understanding of the events, problems and personalities of the whole world. Restricting our education to "book larnin' " m a y g e t us a job on graduation but we'll find t h a t we are not really prepared to live. And it may by only because we did not even glance a t one or two good magazines or newspapers a week, attend our own college cultural prog r a m s nor simply t u r n the radio dial to some news or special events programs. We need intellectual stimulation or else we s t a g n a t e . Let's widen our horizons. As the advertisement f o r a f a m o u s newspaper says — "It's more interesting, and you will be too."

Now t h a t most of u s have received our m a r k s of last semester and vowed with an almost religious fervor t h a t we are going to study harder and b e t t e r next semester, it is, I think, my task to help you along in keeping this resolution. How can I s t u d y people ask me. I don't know why they should come to me, but I will admit I feel flattered and will do all I can to help. One of the prerequisites to good study is a nice orderly desk, where each needed pencil or note card is within instant reach. Thus, to mitig a t e the boredom of actually sitt i n g down to study, you can spent a t least an hour g e t t i n g everything ready. This does much to bolster your ego, and incidentally, automatically cuts your study time in half by giving you such a warm feeling of purpose and success, t h a t you m a y quite easily f o r g e t to do two or three assignments. If a f t e r you have cleaned up your desk, and still do not experience the spark t h a t is so necess a r y if t h e r e is any work to be done, you m i g h t possibly work up a terrific t h i r s t and since the nearest place t h a t sells a n y t h i n g like tomato juice is three blocks away, it will give you a n o t h e r excuse f o r not rushing into the unpleasant t a s k too soon. And w h a t a time it t u r n s out to be in the r e s t a u r a n t ! There's Bob and George and even Lynn and Mary! But all good t h i n g s must come to an end, and you finally r e t u r n to the books with a heavy heart and three glasses of tomato juice in your stomach. It is not easy to break into a new book f o r the first time and it must be done only with the utmost care, otherwise you m a y t e a r the book and have to go to the Blue Key to buy a new one. In my own tortured life I have gone to the Blue Key t h r e e out of the f o u r times t h a t I have had to purchase my books there. So you see, only the most careful students can successfully open a new book without bringing ruin upon themselves. Once you have finally started, don't hesitate to call a friend and, estimating the time you need to finish all y o u r work (one half hour) invite him to go out f o r coffee with you. He will be only too glad to accompany you, and you can go out happy in the t h o u g h t t h a t you have spent a t least one evening in constructive, educative processes. So you see how easy studying really is. If there are any questions you may still have please don't come to me, as I will probably be too busy studying to help you. Oh, don't f o r g e t to watch f o r m y next article on T H E GOOD S T U D E N T , which will be concerned with what to do when you receive a failing m a r k f o r a course. It promises to be highly i n t e r e s t i n g and informative.

A Typical College Day by Mildred Gloss I am NOT a grouch! But I'll tell you one thing, if I were a grouch, I'd have plenty of reason f o r it today. E v e r y t h i n g has gone wrong. I don't think I could have done a thing right today to save my soul. Honestly, some days it doesn't even pay to take the hardware out of your hair in the morning. I didn't even wake up right. My day started with a nightmare. A handsome prince was rescuing me from a fire-eating dragon, and just as he was about to whisk me away on his milk-white steed, t h a t boycrazy Sally f r o m down the hall slithered up behind me, clobbered me with t h a t oversize suitcase she calls a purse, and ran off with my prince. Talk about friendly people! Right about then the alarm went off. I jumped out of bed, down onto my desk, and then landed flat on my skull on the floor. Bea had moved the chair before she went to bed. While I w a s collecting my addled wits, she finally heard the alarm. She bounded blindly out of bed with her usual early-morning agility, landed with both feet in my stomach, made a wild grab for the desk to keep f r o m falling, and knocked a lamp and a chair over in the process. A f t e r b r e a k f a s t , we d r a g g e d our bruised and broken bodies to Chapel. We were late as usual. I managed to fall up the stairs somehow, and then I walked all over a little man I didn't see. N a t u r a l l y I had to climb over all the kids in my row. They would have to get there on time! F i r s t hour we were supposed to have a Big French Test, but the kids had talked the instructor out of giving it f o r t h e past two weeks and would probably talk her out of it again. I hadn't studied f o r it anywayvTso i couldn't see spending an hour in t h a t stuffy classroom on those hard chairs listening to a bunch of idiots ask stupid questions to kill time. I came back to the dorm and sacked out. Mmmmmm, did it feel good! By the time I woke up to see what time it was, second hour was half over with, and figuring t h a t Doc White would r a t h e r I didn't i n t e r r u p t his lecture, I rolled over and floated back to Dreamland. E v e r y t h i n g was fine f o r a while.

Then t h a t "cotton-pickin' " roommate of mine came galloping in and screamed t h a t if I wanted to make my f o u r t h hour class I'd have to roll out in a hurry. I muttered that I didn't particularly want to make it, but she hauled me out anyhow, the meddler! I walked into English class three minutes a f t e r the bell had rung, and as soon as I got comfortably settled in my seat, this fellow that sits next to me who is also in my French class demanded to know where I had been first hour and why I had missed the Big Test. It seems that this time the kids weren't able to talk their way out of it. How's t h a t for luck? Lunch wasn't bad except t h a t we had liver, Brussels sprouts and r h u b a r b pie, all of which I hate with a purple passion. Work was horrible. I couldn't read my shorthand. The typewriter kept sticking. I took my r i n g off so it wouldn't be in my way and it fell on the floor and I banged my head on the desk when I leaned over to pick it up. A f t e r work I came back to the dorm and started m y homework. I got all my French translated a f t e r only two hours of h a r d labor, and I was filling my pen to copy it over, when the bottle tipped over. W h a t a mess! Ink on the desk, on the floor, on the chair, and all over my French, d a r n it! I t w a s so full of ink t h a t I couldn't read it any more, so I had to do the whole translation over again. T h a t night, I stumbled up the stairs and fell into bed. J u s t before I fell asleep, dear, sweet, kind Bea poked me and asked if I didn't think I'd b e t t e r set my hair so I wouldn't look quite so much like someone's left-over sheep dog in the morning. Being a well-bred, patient; happy, smiling, well-adjusted-type individual by nature, and a member of a Christian college by a quirk of Fate, I stifled a sudden mad impulse to throw books, bombs, rocks, and rusty razor blades at my beloved roommate, climbed foggily out of my nice warm bunk, stumbled over the waste basket and a f e w people t h a t were scattered all over the floor, and wound my wig. Then I tottered unsteadily back to bed, and to sleep.

Checking his reports is Mr. Lighthart head custodian at Hope before he leaves his office to check the twenty-three buildings on Hope's campus.

Behind the Scenes By Richard J a a r s m a A few years ago, when an Aust r i a n professor w a s visiting Hope's campus, he saw two people Walking through the halls of one of our buildings. The one was dressed in a suit, the other wore a jacket and work pants. The A u s t r i a n professor commented on the appearance of the one by saying, "Do your professors sometimes wear clothes like t h a t ? " He was g r e a t l y surprised when he w a s told t h a t one w a s our head janitor, Mr. L i g h t h a r t , and the other was one of our professors. The easygoing camaraderie of the janitor-professor relationship to his mind was an overstepping of the bounds of social class. The attitude between Mr. Lighth a r t and many oi the faculty- i s t h a t of friendship and not of professor and janitor. Since he came to this campus twelve years ago, Mr. L i g h t h a r t h a s made friends with many of the faculty and even more of t h e students. W h e t h e r behind the wheel of his little jeep in the winter or walking the campus in the spring, Mr. L i g h t h a r t is always characterized by his school jackets which he wears more f a i t h f u l l y t h a n some of the students. In fact, he is o f t e n mistaken f o r one of the students.

campus and he covers a lot of ground (8 acres, at least once a day) as he must check up on each of them. About his job, Mr. Lighth a r t says, "You can call me anything, janitor, maintenance engineer, superintendent of buildings, anything. I go under many different 'nom de plumes'." Mr. L i g h t h a r t has lived in Holland practically all his life, except f o r a f e w years in Chicago. He is a member of Immanuel Church here in Holland and is a respected citizen of the community. We hope t h a t a f t e r reading this article, m a n y of you will hold our janitorial staff in a little higher esteem, since t h e i r work serves to j n a k e pur campus a place of beauty. Remember, it isn't the professors alone who make our college. Everyone, no m a t t e r how insignificant or large his job, is an integral part of Hope, and a slip in any spot m a y bring our college life to a standstill. So, hold your heads up Mr. L i g h t h a r t and staff, remember, "They also serve who only stand and wait." ,•
