Founder of Barter Theater to Visit Campus Robert Porterfield, who founded and still directs the world-famous Barter Theatre, will be on the Hope College campus February 10 and 11. The visit of this actor is sponsored by the Cultural Programs Committee. A native Virginian, Mr. Porterfield attended Hampden - S y d n e y College and the University of Virginia before entering the American Academy of Dramatic A r t in New York. He has had many successful Broadway appearances and has worked with many of the " g r e a t s " in the history of Broadway and Hollywood.

Robert Porterfield

During a year on tour with Walter Hampden in "Cyrano de Bergerac" he conceived the idea for the now-famous Barter Theatre. In 1932 the sting of the depression was being felt on Broadway. Actors were not eating with regularity. Mr. Porterfield returned to his native state with one of the most original ideas in the show business — a theatre f o r which admission would be paid in produce f o r bodily sustenance, with actors providing food f o r the mind through talent and entertainment. Mr. Porterfield's activities and talents have since gained nation-wide attention. Mr. Porterfield was one of the first of his profession to receive the Antoinette P e r r y ("Tony") award f o r outstanding contribution to the American Theatre. He is also one of the founders of the American National Theatre and Academy. At the Barter Theatre he has produced over 270 plays, involving more than 1,500 actors. Monday morning he will address a student assembly. His lecture, "Muscles versus Minds," will compare the arts with athletics. Monday afternoon at 4:00 he will address the Palette and Masque board and other interested students about college-theatre organization. All students are invited to m e e t him personally Monday evening a t 7:00 in the music building auditorium where he will speak to the members of Palette and Masque a s well as the public. A reception will be held f o r him a f t e r t h e meeting.

International Missionary Conference Attended by Ten From Hope Dr. Billy Graham was one of the key speakers heard by the 3200 college, university, and seminary students who were present a t the F i f t h International Student Missionary Conference held at the University of Illinois during Christmas vacation. Among these 3200 were ten from Hope — Dr. and Mrs. R. DeHaan of the Psychology Department, Mr. E. Jekel of t h e Chemistry Department, Ed De Young, Jim DeWitt, DeLoyd Hesselink, Larry Izenbart, Marilyn Scudder, Helen Taylor, and Barbara Ting. It is estimated that about thirty Reformed Church young people attended. The Hope Y's and the Danforth Scholarship Fund helped make this conference possible for the Hope students by sharing their expenses. This conference was the fifth of such conferences which are held every three years and are sponsored by the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, the Nurses Christian Fellowship, and the Student Foreign Mission Fellowship. Bringing together young people from college and university campuses all over the world, who are interested in missions is one of the functions of this conference. These students come to see the purposes and needs of the missions and the recent advances made by them. In addition to Dr. Billy Graham, who addressed the conference members two eveninjgs. Dr. Donald Barnhouse, Dr. H. J. Ockenga, and Dr. Toyotome of Japan, also delivered enlightening and inspiring messages under the theme of the conference — "One Lord, One Church, One World." One of the highlights of the conference was felt to be the Holy Communion Service which was served to the entire group who met together on New Year's Eve f r o m 10:30 to 12:00. Included in the activities of each day were addresses heard f r o m representatives of the Latin American Mission work, Bible study done by all, in small groups of f r o m ten to twenty, movies on mission work being done throughout the world, vocational and area seminars led by missionaries, and prayer sessions in the dormitories. Those f r o m Hope who attended felt it was a most inspiring experience and expressed the wish t h a t every Christian could attend such a conference as this one was.

Fried and Frissel Attend RCA Committee Meeting Dr. Paul Fried, Associate professor of history and Dr. Harry Frissel, professor of physics, attended the Meeting of Committee on Intel-national Affairs of the General Synod, Reformed Church in America at the Board Offices — 156 Fifth Ave., New York City on Monday and Tuesday, J a n u a r y 27th and 28th.

In honor of Good St. Valentine and the whole romantic world in general Dutch Treat Week will again be observed at Hope College. This is the one week in the year when the male population of Hope College can sit back and not worry about money for dates. For this week of Feb. 10-14, the lady must pay the gentleman's way while he just grins and enjoys it. Tuesday the 11th, with Jim Evers acting as Master of Ceremonies, the traditional Bachelor Bank drawing will be held in the gym. Twenty eligible men have been chosen to be part of this unusual bank. The girls who would like to date any of these men put their names in the Ballot Box, located in Van Raalte. If her name is drawn, the girl not only gets one of the "eligible" but the couple date f r e e through the courtesy of one of merchants in town. As a high-light, a f t e r a week of door holding, treating at the Kletz, and book carrying, a party "Holiday f o r H e a r t s " will be held at the Literary club, Friday night — Valentine's Day. This is also turnabout; the girls must ask the boy. Also on the agenda f o r girl-askboy week is the Calvin game on the 12th and the joint Y meeting. The people responsible f o r the planning of this " f r e e week" are Edna Hollander and Greta Weeks, general chairmen; Betty Ann Rothwell, Pris Boelhouwer, and Margo Gotte, co-chairmen of the dance; Mary Lammers and Evalyn Carter, co-chairmen of the Bachelor Bank; and Marcia Baldwin and Diane Sluyter, co-chairmen of Publicity. A word of advice, men — relax. Enjoy yourself. Keep the girls guessing. Girls, if the strain gets to be too much — remember they have to do it the other 51 weeks of the year.

Sir: Dr. Hollenbach's talk a b o u t Egypt in Durfee Hall on Wednesday afternoon was very informative. I definitely believe such talks and group discussion about world issues, which are so important to the f a t e of humanity, would, inspite of our unconsciousness, give us a more objective outlook about our world of today. A critical panel discussion, under the direction of interested faculty, on world problems such as North Africa, the educational system in Russia, and the Middle East would be of tremendous value. —Waleed Karachy

The International Relations Club is currently centering its bi-weekly meetings upon the Middle East. In addition to rendering profound insights into this "trouble spot of the world," the meetings serve as an orientation f o r the AIRC Conference to be held during spring vacation in Washington, D. C. The first meeting of the second semester was held Jan. 29, at 4 p.m. in Durfee Lounge; Dr. Hollenbach, former dean of the American University at Cairo and presently Hope Vice President, initiated the series of meetings by speaking about Egypt — its ancient traditions and modern issues. According to Dr. Hollenbach the foremost of Egypt's problems is that of population and how to meet it. In various areas merely giving aid is not sufficient if we lack technical knowledge of the phase of Egyptian life we're aiding. Even a sound understanding of Egyptian education must be undergone before we can progress in educating the people to realize the need f o r changes in many of their customs. Dr. Hollenbach also expounded upon the challenge confronting college students. In the discussion period, we saw the need for welltrained teachers in the schools and universities of Egypt. Our future meetings promise to be fully as informative. No one who attends can fail to see the challenging need of the MiddleEast.

"A Rose By Any Other Name . . ." Religious Emphasis Week, though over, is still fresh in our minds and is still being discussed and evaluated. While there can really be no argument against having such an observance there are aspects of the, so called. Religious Emphasis Week, as observed at Hope College, that can be improved. One of these is the very name given to the observance - - - Religious Emphasis Week. Besides being very confusing to all those not directly connected with Hope College, it is overflowing with connotations. For one thing, do the members of the Hope family desire to be characterized as "religious" or would they rather be known as - - followers of Christ, Christians? There is a difference you know, between being "religious" and being truly interested in the "things of the spirit!" There is a difference between being adherents of "a" religion and being adherents of "the" religion, Christianity! Paul acknowledged this difference when he said to the men of Athens, "I precieve t h a t in every way you are very religious." Even if it is assumed that our observance is Christian in nature, another problem arises when the last two words in its title are considered. Is it possible f o r a Christian or a Christian Institution to emphasize Christianity only one week out of fifty-two? If a person is a Christian, is it wrong to assume that his Christianity permeates his every thought and action — 365 days a year? Is it possible f o r person to be more Christian during the first week of February than he is during the rest of the year? Do the members of the Hope family attend Chapel, or search their souls, or kneel in prayer only once a year? Most assuredly not! Then why give false impressions by using misleading titles? Perhaps these few words are of little importance. Yet, it seems very sad indeed t h a t an institution that has always been so anxious to uphold every other aspect of its witness would be so careless in such a matter. It is poor advertisement indeed! —J. F.

Personality Beauty Salon

""Sukiyaki" By Nena L. Mih R-r-ring — "Hello, Nena?, this is Mrs. Schrier. How would you like to come to dinner on Saturday n i g h t s ? " Well, whenever I am offered food, I never refuse so I readily accepted; and t h a t was my key to a very lovely evening of fellowship and good eating. Dr. and Mrs. Schrier were in the F a r East f o r a period of about two years and had cultivated the taste for Japanese food. Yoshie Ogawa, the Japanese girl on the campus, was asked to be chief cook. The other guests, (the Castle Parkers) who are not known for their culinary arts, were made assistants. At 5:00 p.m., Yoshie found at her disposal the spacious and wellkept kitchen of the Schriers. She, with the efficiency of a well-trained Oriental girl, started by putting the rice on the stove. She then cut the meat into thin strips and arranged them nicely on a platter. A f t e r this, the green onions, bamboo shoots, mushrooms and green pepper were cut and were also arranged nicely on a tray. The above materials in addition to a can of yam noodles, a bottle of soy sauce and a cup of sugar are the ingredients of the Japanese dish "Sukiyaki". Mrs. Schrier, being the perfect hostess, called for a recess and served Hawaiian punch, oysters and crackers, and potato chips with spread. A f t e r visiting for a while with the other guests, who took their jobs as assistants lightly, Yoshie went back to the kitchen. Here she put lard on the skillet and preheated it. She then carefully put the meat,the green onions, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, green pepper and the yam noodles on the skillet. Each thing occupied a distinct place. ("This is no chop-suey", Yoshie was heard saying.) The mixture of soy sauce and sugar was then dumped into the skillet and Sukiyaki was well on its way. The skillet was then brought to the dining room where a Japanese table was set up and all the guests were ready to sit down. This table was very low and everybody had to sit on the floor. All guests enjoyed this very much f o r it was quite " T H E " thing. Bowls of piping hot rice were brought out and everyone was made to eat with chopsticks. Lovely Japanese tea bowls were filled with hot coffee, for it was learned t h a t the Dutch's love f o r coffee is always cultivated by the foreigners who live in Holland. Everyone ate very slowly, for the manipulation of chopsticks is quite a feat. Seconds of Sukiyaki were demanded and when dinner was over the hostess was left without left-overs. A f t e r having eaten Sukiyaki, the guests could hardly get up from the positions in which they found themselves on the floor. It was then suggested and approved that they have dessert later. Everybody then retreated to the living room to be entertained by Perry Como on T.V. A f t e r this program was over, a committee was elected to do the dishes while the other continued viewing television. Time was also devoted to conversation about each one's experiences here and abroad. The fine evening, where Sukiyaki was the main attraction, was ended with a piece of delicious homemade pie and the late news.

Frats Plan For Coming Semester Prins to Address Arkies Tonight, Friday, February 7, Mr. Prins, associate professor of English, will review a book at the Arcadian meeting. This past week the Arkies held a literary meeting at which Bob Baste presented a serious paper on "Examples and Types of Novels." Following the meeting there was a sing practice of college and f r a ternity songs. Paul Van Wyk and Melvin Ver Steeg have been named co-chairman of the Arcadian Spring informal. Clark Matthews has been named chairman in charge of second

SPUTNIK: MAN'S SECOND TOWER OF BABEL Since the firing of an earth satellite which revolves around the earth every ninety-five minutes or so, mankind has been able to more or less sit back on his haunches a n d smugly say "See what we have wrought!" This attitude is typical of man. He is not Richard J a a r s m a content just to be the highest form of life on the planet, but he must boast about it by exploding hydrogen bombs and launching insignificant basketballs, which, when weighed in the cosmic balance amount to grains of sand in a huge pile of boulders. The writer of Genesis saw this attitude; Herman Melville saw it ad wrote about it in Moby Dick where all the conceit and pride of man is lumped into Captain Ahab when he says, "I would strike the sun itself if it hurt me!"; and we can see this attitude today by reading about t h e "wonderful" achievements of humanity epitomized in man's best friend, Canis Familiaris, bearing the injustice of swinging around the earth without gravity because his master is afraid to go himself. Sociologists point to this maladjustment of man's nature by referring to it as "initiative." In my opinion, instead of initiative man has somehow acquired a daring and foolhardiness which would put him high on the list as a candidate for the title of Supreme Cosmic Ass. The theory seems to be that since man has made such a mess of his own planet, he can justify this by making a bigger mess of the other planets. It seems to me that if man wants recognition from extraterrestial observers, it would not be such a bad idea if he conquered himself first, before attempting to despoil the universe with his gaudy and glittering trifles. This conceit, however, finds its inception in a sort of racial inferiority complex which causes the race to lull itself into thinking t h a t if it builds enough machines f o r its protection and prestige, it will be able to shut out the clammy fingers of insecurity. However, who is humanity fooling ? Certainly not itself —, unless it has to build just a few more " g r e a t " structures before it will be secure. Humanity does not see, to realize that this insecurity is not an objective thing. It comes f r o m within and will remain a s the race continues to make martyrs of the very philosophers which can help man out of his neurotic trauma. It seems too bad t h a t the whole race wasn't wiped out with the Flood, f o r it is certain, t h a t if man conquers space, he will find through such an a c t more horror and suffering t h a n he has ever dared to bring upon his own home.

Dorothea Doehmer

New German Student to Assist In Language Lab An additional attraction has been added to the German Department this semester in the form of friendly brown-eyed, nineteen year old Dorothea Doehmer. "Thea" as her friends call her, has been in the States since last May and until her entrance as a sophomore at Hope resided with her sister and brother-in-law in Muskegon. Although her parents are German citizens Thea was born in Rome so that by the time she was four and a half she could speak fluent Italian, as well as German. At the present time her family lives in the university town of Marburg, Germany, which is on the River Lahn, near F r a n k f u r t . Germany, unlike the United States, does not have colleges with dormitory living so students must board in private homes. Thea's f a m i l y ^ h a s b e e n - h o s t to many foreign students including one American who had a Fullbright scholarship. Concerning the differences between the two countries, Dorothea says t h a t most American girls wear much more makeup than the average German girl who uses only lipstick and then in her last year of high school. More foreign languages are studied in Europe— the first one being taught in about the 5th grade—so t h a t Thea can speak English, German, French, and Latin besides understanding Italian. No a f t e r school jobs are held by pupils, f o r with thirty-six hours of classes there is no time to do anything but study. The Germans do not have study halls. Thea is studying to become a secondary school teacher of English and French but is also interested in art and music. While at Hope she will assist students with their prounciation and will record the tapes t h a t will be used in the lab.

New Records To Try If you have grown tired of the old favorites, the Music Department suggests t h a t you broaden your musical background by listening to some of the new albums which have recently been catalogued.

By that time, the fellas from "way down South" had arrived and entered the spotlight to the tune of "Dixie". Mr. Interlocutor, Rosemarie Kish, introduced his company which included Mr. Wigglejaw, Doris Stickle; Mr. Hamstrung, Betty Ann Rothwell; Mr. Tarball, Marilyn Campbell; Mr. Heelantoe, Margo Gotte; Mr. Paddlefoot, Jo Ann Barton; and Mr. Fussfeathers, Phyl Lovins. Along with the Jamboree humor, companied by Lynalice Nelson, the Southern Belles Sextette, acsang "Make Believe" followed by a solo, "My Bill", by Barbara Wolfe. About this time, Mr. (Rothwell) Hamstrung couldn't contain himself and had to give the audience a taste of that "real gone" Southern rock and roll. The loosejointed Mr. (Barton) Paddlefoot, trying to outdo him, then pantomimed "Old Man River". Matie Fischer then led the Dorians and their guests in some group mixers. A fitting close to the evening was the forming of a large friendship circle and the singing of the A.S.A. and Dorian songs. Sibylline: The theme of the Sibylline meeting on January 31st was "Rhapsody". Devotions were led by Winnie Cameron, "Allegro on Ice", the serious paper, by Evalyn Carter, "Melodic Impressions" a stirring piano solo, by Gertrude Burggraaff, and "Humor in a Minor Key", by Carol Houghtaling. At the business meeting plans were discussed f o r the joint A.S.A. — Sibylline meeting to be held on March 21st. The sorority is looking into the possibilities for having another pizza break sometime in the near future.
