TOPPERS Long Shots Feature Close Contest


4s %

Playing the game of their lives the Hope basket ball squad led the much toted Western State Normal until the last minute of play. When the gong was about to ring the Hill Toppers rang up two baskets in rapid succession, one of them tieing the score and the other spelling defeat for the Orange and Blue. It was a game full of thrills with Hope leading all the way; the sensational long basket shooting of the College team, their rapid passing, their hard and fast guarding were all that could be desired. Yonkman, who has been sick, was on the side lines but did not get into the game. The game started with a rush but in spite of this fact kept getting faster and faster as play continued. Miller for Kazoo opened the scoring with a lucky one from half way down the court. Irving not to be outdone repeated and tied the score. The game tended to become rough and Johnson the referee frequently stopped it in the first part of this half to penalize the offenders. Irving for Hope added 3' points to our score and Miller padded his average with five from the foul line. This part of the program over with Riemersma decided to put his squad again ahead and uncorked one of his long parabolic shots that never touched the rim. Joldersma repeated from approximately the same spot and, altho his trajectory was somewhat flatter, it added an equal 2 points to the Hope score. This gave Riemersma an inspiration and he added another from almost the same position and another from close in after a dribble. This gave Hope a decided lead but Van Wingen of the Normal cut it down two points before the half ended. Half score 13 to 9, Hope. . The second half was replete with thrills as the celery eating teachers attempted to narrow the margin between them and victory. Van Wingen scored first from under the basket after some pretty passing. Irving broke thru the Kazoo first line and evened things up, Riemersma again scored from a mid-court position. Van Wingen scored again on the same play that had netted him his earlier basket. The Kalamazoo quintet now began to cover three quarters of the floor in a successful effort to stop the long distant shooting of Hope. The Hope team was playing a great game, however, with the ball in their possession a greater percentage of the time. Johnson of Kazoo brought the score to an 18 to 18 tie with a half court placement. Irving soon fiut Hope again in the lead with a pretty shot after he had received a neat bounce pass. Time was almost up and the Orange and Blue attempted to retain victory by stalling tactics, they proved unsuccessful and Johnson of the teachers added two more baskets and the contest, one of the hairdest luck i* exhibitions staged here this year, was terminated. The long distance shooting of Capt. Riemersma, the clever floor work of Irving, the steady guarding of Joldersma and the passing of Ottipoby and Van Lente featured the Hope play. The deadly eyes of Van Wingen and 0.'Johnson gave Kazoo the victory. Miller also played a good

HOPE COLLEGE. Holliiid. Michigan, Feb. 7,1923 "HOPE HIGJBT DOPE Do you know that ours in not the only school bearing the name'Hope'? I think that most of our student body do know that there is another school bearing our name—Hope High School in India, so named because we as a school, faculty and students, support the Principal of that school. Many Hope Alumni and some resident students have "Endowment Pledges", which are payable in annual installments for a period of ten years. More students should take these pledges, so that the annual drives for "one year pledges" will no longer be necessary. Last May at our annual drive pledges amounting to $1,177.50 were made by 201 people. Of this amount $740.00 have been collected from 120 people and the association union committee wish to thank those who paid promptly. There are 81 pledges amounting to $437.50, still unpaid. We all take pride in the missionary record of our school but let us not "rest on the oars". We can make this a big "Hope High School year" by paying up those back pledges, and then when in May the annual drive again takes place we may launch out into a bigger year. N Anyone with a little spare time would do well to write a letter to help cheer up and encourage our own representative out there in the active work. Address: Chris.

performance this season will eclipse all anticipations. With Mr. Laurant in the company are Greta Banes Laurant, pianist, and Fred Larsen, stage manager. Mrs. Laurant assists in the magic work and, both from this standpoint and also in her piano selections, proves herself a thoroughly delightful entertainer. Upon Mr. Larsen devolves the duty of superintending the huge mass of equipment used in the lavish Laurant productions. Big things have always been predicted of Laurant and Company and bigger things have always been achieved. People who have seen Kellar and Hermann the Great at their best declare that Laurant is quite their equal, and not a few pronounce him their superior. As a tribute to Laurant's astonishing skill and to his consistent leadership in raising the art of magic to the highest plane, he was presented recently with a gold medal by the Society of American Magicians.

PI KAPPA DELTA Students of Hope, do you know that we have a national organization upon the campus? Well we have and it is known as the Gamm«i Chapter Pi Kappa Delta. I t is a national organization of orators and debaters and is recognized far and wide. At present the membership of our chapter is seven. Those who are active members are, Harvey De Weerd, Jack Prins, Jerry De Vries, Daniel De Graff, Irvin Borgman.Miss Jeanette Van Arendbnk and Dr. J.B. Nykerk. Beside these there are a large number of Hopeites, who are graduate members, Mr. Giles, at one time our representative in.the State Oratorical Contest, has recently written for membership in our Chapter. The purpose of this organization is to promote oratory and debate on the campus. The members of the Chapter have done as much as they were able along this line this year. It urges all, who petoltty can, to get into the oratorical contests this Spring. Now is the time to begin on that oration, that you have been planning to write. Get at it now. when the exams are over and your slate is clean. The emblem of this organization fa a golden key set with stones, depending upon the rank of the member. Mr. De Weerd and Mr. Prins have earned the degree of honor, both having taken part in three debates. Fellow-students, you too may wear one of these emblems if you get out and work. Let us see a very large number in the contests this Spring. Let us have a dozen eliminations, if need be. Let's go, Hopeites and show the world that we are still on the map when it comes to oratory and debating.

ZWEMER, HARRISON AT ANN ARROR MICHIGAN UNION BUSY PLANNING ANNUAL CONFERENCE STUDENT VOLUNTEER CONVENTION The time is fast drawing near when the students of Hope will be asked to consider the momentous question whether or not they will attend the Student Volunteer convention to be held this year at Ann Arbor on March 16, 17, 18. Aside from the fact that it will enable many to become acquainted with their own state university m a very intimate way we must consider that more important phase dealing with the spiritual welfare which such a convention will foster and its more f a r reaching results in the lives of those who may gain there the vision of a personal share in the work of evangelizing the worldl. Of those who attended the meetings last year few will deny the power which was evident thruout the conference. I marvel, as I look back to that time, for I was rather doubtful as to what such a conference would bring, but after all was over I felt that feeling of rejuvenation in spiritual matters that was indeed wonderful. We, of the student volunteer group, look forward with a great deal of anticipation to this coming event. But we feel that our joy and pleasure would be much more increased if we could take witii us the other members of the Hope family who are all, in essence, missionaries of the cross. Won^t you think about this and try to see what benefits would result to you from attending and consider the pleasure and advantage such a trip would bring? It is very interesting to note that among the leading speakers will be Dr. Samuel Zwemer. We all know him for his grip upon world problems, his deep convictions, his charm and personality. Dr. Zwemer has just completed an extensive tour thru the Mohammedan world. His previous experiences have been augmented and enlarged. He comes with a message from a land that is hungering and thirsting for the true gospel of Jesus Christ. We will also be privileged to hear a man who has proven to J>e a magnetic force wherever he has spoken. I speak of Dr. Harrison. A man who has been on the field many years, possessing rare talent in bringing home his message tilled with a deep sincertiy for his work and knowing that whereof he speaks. Recently Dr. Harrison broke all precedence in the chapel of the University of Chicago. The students were filled with such enthusiasm that they could not contain themselves and broke forth into hearty applause, an action which had not been observed for some time. Think about these things seriously, students, and try to see your way clear to joining us in group. Watch the Anchor for more information. "EXCHANGE COMMENT ON SUPPLEMENT" "Hope has added a Literary Supplement to its weekly paper and surely is to be congratulated on the first number. Its form is neat and the material is well-proportioned. The stories, "A Symphony in Red", and "The Virtuous Vamp"; "Reflections of a Senior"; "A Reverie on Studying"; "Looking Backward" by an alumna; and the Bbok Reviews are especially worth-while, and we hope that Calvin students will read some of the articles. It should meet with a hearty response by the students of Hope." —Calvin Chimes^

A LINE A DAY. No, this isn't an argument in favor of keeping a diary although we might suggest that it is a very excellent habit and worth-while following. "A line a day" holds good in more than one line. Every day in everything we do we are adding a line of history, of growth, and of character to our lives. Sometimes it isn't a very pleasant thought that all that we do is written down irrevocally on Life's page in black and white. For example, we're building the history of Hope. We're determining its future by our actions of to-day. What public opinion are we creating at Hope? Is each line forceful, energetic, powerful? A character isn't built in a day but, nevertheless, we add something to it daily. Are we going to have the words blotted and blurred, the line crooked, and the meaning dim and obscure? It's quite a responsibility, this invisible diary of ours. It merits careful thought and consideration. Study it carefully, and write your lines swiftly but surely in the best way you can. Then a line a day will add much to your life. o THE SPIRIT OF HOPE. With the passing of another semester we bring out the old weather-wom witticism 'Tempus Fugit.' The deeds we have done and the words we have spoken are floating lightly into the regions of criticism or commendation. For as Shakepeare says, "It is what men dare do, what men may dp, what men daily do, not knowing what they do that solves the individual 4ifs' in their individual lives!" It is the careful, observing, personal friend who, after an extended absence, can compare the present with the past and thus prophecy for the future in ones career. As a man on furlough returning to the home of his childhood, notes the irregularities, the differences and the changes that have taken place so Hope students and graduates note there, after a short intermission, the evolutionary changes involved in this so-called "Spirit of Hope". A ghostly semblance of some monstrous image, demanding fear, yet beautiful to look upon, A Spirit of Hope haunts us throughout our last hig<h school days. With eager expectancy we entered this institution-disappointed in so far that the spirit with which we have become acquainted seems not a beacon of light to the studentry, not a bright star to all upon our campus, but rather an organism, which, in its struggle for exsistance is meeting some superior foe, and is now on a slow but steady decline, to be revered only as a thing of the past. That Spirit, which in the days of yore, was held high in the hearts of men, inspiring our oraters, spurring our athletes on to victory, that spirit which knew no defeat, is now being selfishly snapped by a parasite, gnawing its way deep into the

moralo of our students, thus bleeding the very veins of our 'Spera in Deq.' The Society spirit which is prevalent on our campus to-day could be classified as a detrimental necessity or as a necessary determent, necessary in so far that in its proper sphere it helps, through competitive methods, to bring out the best material for our Alma Mater, but determental, when in an uncontrolable realm, it leads the very members of its organization into selfish, dishonest avenues for gaining their society ends. During the process of our course at Hope this spirit has swayed the hearts of many of us, in the early rush for men, and in the election of College association officers, to entertain means and methods which would not measure up to the honor system we have adopted. That spirit has encouraged men to put away all sense of self respect, honor, and religious justice, and has broken the bonds of closest friendship, merely, to determine some selfish society gain. That spirit is now spreading its influence into the social realm of our college, and we as Christian students seem satisfied to inhale the fumes of its furiousness, and to do nothing to hinder its coming. - Fellows . students these things ought not so to be. 'Dad' Elliot in his short visit with us, has pointed out this weakness on our campus. Are we, in the coming elections, set on our motives as to the path we shall follow? Are we at ease to think that if but our society wins we care not for the outcome of Hope? Do you not care, that, since the cultivation of • this spj^it * we have not had winners in Oratory, winnens in debates, winners in athletics, such as our Alumni boast? Shall we post on the portals of our beloved college these words as a motto: "For My Society I shall Sing?" Or shall we, in overcoming this Menace create a large atmosphere for those to come, giving assurance to our ALMA MATER, with voices raised in tuneful accord sing out: "OLD HOPE, thy sons ar3 round thee standing." We will ever hail our glorious ORANGE AND BLUE." H. L. "OUR FOOLOSOPHER."

a one-hour vacation from our "exams." But it certainly was true. We could just feel our minds travel in one direction at a great rate of speed and the blue books in the opposite direction at the same rate of speed, until there were miles and miles between them. Then we had reached our destination and Agnes, in her own sincere way told us, with new force, that God had a two-fold dwelling place. We had probably heard this several times before, but it did not strike us quite in the same way. We were told that God was omnipotent, eternal, and omnipresent. Whereever we go, there is God. Such a comforting fact! But He has two dwelling places, is what we learned in Y. W.; one in Heaven and one in the hearts of the humble people. It was stressed that the heart must be humble before God can possibly dwell in it. We should pi ay that God would first make out hearts humble, and then ask Him to come to dwell in them. Who can look out of doors, at a brillant red setting-sun and not have his heart moved or who can look at the flashing lightning or hear the rumbling thunder and not realize the power of God ? " 0 Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made all: the earth is full of thy riches." Every girl present felt the power and presence of God. Oh, how each one wished for a more humble heart and that God would come to dwell in it and make it His abode. Could we but stay here and think and listen but, what is this we hear, "Time to close!" and that means our vacation has ended! Sad news. Then we realized that our minds were again speeding along and that we would soon meet our blue books. And after the meeting there they were to meet us. But there had been a change, they seemed to have a ray of sunshine across their faces. Strange as it may seem to have sunshine in a blue book, that is just what happened, for each girl had sunshine in her eyes and everything she now looked at contained sunshine. There was only one thing to sadden our trip and that was that not all the girls on the campus were there and that some had to miss it. Here is some good news though: this is just one of our weekly excursions. Next week and every week we want you all to be there to take the vacation with us. The train leaves at 5 p. m. sharp.

It makes it twice as much fun to skip. Dr. Dimnent's big job, how to put the "chap" in chapel,—well yes, and the "com" in compulsory. When Hope lost to Normal the other night we felt like the freshman who crammed all night on a certain French poem and was given another in the exam the next day. There is one thing we don't like about "Frost Bites", that is that the fan next to you is always broke. Night by night by electric light, I am getting brighter and brighter.

Y. W. C .A. Weren't we glad we had gone to Y. W. last week to take a vacation ? We were quite surprised when Agnes Beukema, who was to lead on the topic. "The Two-fold Dwelling Place of God," told us that we were to have

HOME VOUNTEERS. The Home Volunteers held their regular meeting last Friday, Jan. 26 at 5 o'clock. It is not to be disputed that the Home Volunteer organization has proved to be a great success not only, but a real inspiration to the men intending to go into the ministry. It is essentially an organization which stands for preparation and thoroughness on the part of its membership, as regards their future work. Would anyone claim to be a student he must first of all possess the quality of open-mindedness and approach every problem from an unprejudiced standpont. He must look at things with the critical eye. He must weigh every statement and assertion; consider the source and probability of its truth, and if he discovers certain facts he must ask himself whether the facts warrant the conclusions he draws from them.x Such was the attitude which Bert Brower took in approaching the subject of criticism . or review of the recent publicaition^ "Landmarks |of the Reformed Fathers", by Mr. Van Eyck, Postmaster of Holland. Mr. Van Eyck tries to show in his book that there was no justification whatever upon any grounds for the secession of 1857. That the seceders were not agreed amongst themselves, he also brings out. It is, however, not a wprk devoted to a harsh and

TheBestBusiness Career *


Is what every ambitious senior is thinking about at the present time. Life insurance is one of the best, one of the most desirable, and one of the most satisfactory as a permanent calling. In assets and volume of business, life insurance is one of the three leading businesses of this country, yet the field is comparatively under-developed. Only 7 per cent of the economic value of human life in the United States is covered by insurance. This gives an idea of the big field still to be worked, especially business insurance for firms and corporations. As to remuneration: Reports of college graduates who have entered business indicate that life insurance is at the very top as a source of income. Now is the time for you to consider what you are going to do after graduation.

Altho indebted to the editor of the Anchor for his timely euggrestion, this subject has been on my mind Below Hotel Holland and heart for some time. I have shifted the responsibility somewhat to my heart, as my mind—being no longer fresh and verdant like the grass—cannot cover the ground. From the outset I must assure you that it is not for lack of 'dates'that I endite this soulstirring epistle. In HOLLAND, MICH. tact I am a most popular girl. This is the first time I have been able to express this in black and white, as Capital $100,000.00 up until now I have always used blue Surplus and Profits $86,000.00 or violet ink.

But with the reconstruction program going, thanks to those dear men of the council, my fame has spread to the uttermost parts of Holland. Now I must say, "Wherefore and where do they Romeo". Gossip has it that they come no more. For which favor I am posolutly thankful and absotivly glad. The condition was fearful. The system had me in its grip. When I had been out with a man for three times or more, my name was linked uo with theirs. I felt like a string of HOLLAND, MICH. sausages. Not only was I one man's hat and chain.
