Dutch Treat Week (& Women) Moving In!! by Linda Walvoord Gallons of coffee, consumed two by two on weeknights downtown, postmen laden down with valentines, pairs of merry students at a pizza break, lots of unexpected twosomes at a Saturday basketball game, and many sore Dutch feet will mark an old old Hope tradition, Feb. 11-16. If Hope's "Dutch Treat" were really "Dutch," each of a pair would pay his (and her) own way, at the man's invitation. But annually, Hope's campus livens as girls trade the privilege of inviting for the duty of picking up the whole tab. Sponsored by the Student Council, and instigated over 30 years ago, Dutch Treat Week each year receives cooperation and planning

from many local merchants and campus clubs. Opening the week's activities will be the Sibylline Pizza Break on Monday night, Feb. 11, in Durfee Hall. Pipin' hot pizzas are sold for "economytype prices" while candle-light and checkered tablecloths deck the room. It seems the women have the upper hand, and more than one incentive for picking up those telephones during the week. Restaurants and drive-ins in Holland frequently offer "Dutch Treat" specials, (as though the ladies needed an extra push!). The Dutch Treat Dance on Friday night will provide a main attraction for "Dutch" couples, planned by Student Council. Final

f plans for the dance will be announced next week. Saturday will offer a "last chance" with the Alma basketball game. Other popular suggestions solicited from Hope men for a "sure-fire" date are bowling at any of the Holland spots, toboggan parties at Goshom or American Legion Country Club (if the gal can find four wheels to get there), or for the less athletic type, how about a movie? Another Dutch Treat Week feature is the annual "Bachelor Bank" conducted for the girl who'll take a chance. Each fraternity nominates from each class, one "most eligible bachelor," whose name will be submitted. Twenty girls who place (or somehow have submitted) their names will be matched with the 20 fellows and given free tickets to some event (or snack) from a local merchant. Drawing will take place on Monday, Feb. 11. Watch further bulletin and anchor announcements for details.

General chairman for the event is Mary Jane Mills. Committee chairmen are Kathy Van Kuiken and Gary Nederveld, dance;

Kathy Brown, refreshments; Marilyn Bates and Jim Vander Kolk, tickets; Billie Detter, bachelorbt«nk and Sue Atkinson, publicity.

by Richard Brand Snow storms this winter, some of the worst in Holland History, have been the major local news story of the year. According to many old timers in the area, this has been the hardest winter since 1936. A total of 104.5 inches of snow has fallen so far this winter. There are about 40 inches of snow on the ground now. High snow drifts on highway 31 south of Holland are famous, receiving a story and picture in the U. S. News and World Report. Some drifts measured 1520 feet in height. A huge snow blower from Saginaw, owned by the State Highway Department, was called in to handle the oversized drifts. Many motorists stayed over night in the local Armory because of closed roads. . % • ^ •.:— . — — - - • •- — — 1 1

APO service fraternity furnished red warning flags to motorists in the community to attach to antennae of their cars. They report having given out 500 flags.

ing six more weeks of "bad" weather. During the month of January the temperature was on the cool side. The lowest temperature was minus three degrees on the morning of Jan. 22. A warm balmy day, Jan. 10, held the highest temperature of 39 degrees. An average temperature of 18 degrees, eight degrees below normal, helped kill the germs or somehow reduced the flu epidemic in this area, according to some health officials. The U. S. Weather Bureau at Washington, D. C. reports that the average daily temperature to be expected in February is 20 degrees, with a range of 15 degrees. Minor problems were created on the campus by the capricious weather: Cars parked in the neatly cleared spot just south of Columbia Hall and directly east of the heating plant made oil delivery difficult for the oil trucks. This is a "no parking at any time" area. Dean Hilmert reported that it was likely that cars parked in this area would be towed away ac the expense of the owner. Twelfth Street between Columbia Avenue and College have been made one-way east-bound

allowing parking on both sides of the street. All cars are parked facing east on this section of Twelfth Street. A minor accident was caused recently because a student drove at an imprudent speed for conditions, the wrong way on this street. On all other Holland streets parking is allowed only on the south and west sides of the streets unless otherwise posted. So far the college .has spent about $1,000 on snow removal. According to Mr. Visscher, College Business manager, about $200 was paid on use of outside removal equipment, $200 on removing snow and ice from roofs of campus buildings, $600 on plowing and shoveling done by maintenance personnel and students. Only a few leaks in top floor rooms were reported, caused by ice jams and melting snow. In addition to the college snow removal, the city plows, which get two miles per gallon of gas, cleared the streets surrounding the college and widened , the streets in the campus area. In all, the city plows use an average of 1,000 gallons of gas per day. Snow dumping areas were (Continued on Page Two) ;

Snow... (Continued from Page One) filled by snow removal equipment by the second week in January. The city purchased a snow blower to clear the dumping areas so that more snow could be dumped. The snow is blown into Black River. The central heating plant has been working hard to combat the low temperature. An average of 3,000 gallons of oil and about 250,000 cubic feet of natural gas per day are used to heat the buildings on the campus in this weather. One professor reported that he started for school one morning at 6:30 a.m. and just made it in time for second hour. First he had to plow his drive, but then he found a dead battery in his car. While a service truck came and started his car, township plows filled in the end of his drive, requiring a 40-minute shoveling job. He then spent 35 minutes to get to school, a driving time of usually 15 minutes. Most campus walks have been clleared down to the concrete or hard packed layer of snow. In some spots the hard packed snow is five inches thick. At the early hour of 3:00 a.m. the campus maintenance men start the snow removal program on the campus. The maintenance department requests that students please remove their cars from the parking lots by 7:00 a.m. to help in more efficient snow removal. Cars not removed r.re subject to a fine; stalled cars

Chairmen include Dick Vander Borgh, juke box; Betty Bruins and Marion Hoekstra, concessions; Jim Bultman and Marty Tucker, equipment; Jim Wiegerink, kegs and barrels; Diane Hellenga, Mary Ellen Bridges, John Hoekstra, financing. Tentative plans are for the room to be used as shown in the above floor plan with the nearby Chatternook as a TV room. The fraternities and sororities may be called on to help construct the barrel tables planned for the snack bar area. To help with operating funds, the Council may have to sell Union Cards, probably for $1.00 for the semester. "This will be a worthy semester," reported Rick. "We hope to have the Juliana Room functioning soon; we plan on having two Council members lead a current events discussion again each Wednesday night in the dining halls, and we are getting ready to go ahead with our reorganization plans." Rick announced at the meeting that the coming reorganization would be modeled after the national government, with senate representatives b e i n g elected from different precincts in the wards (dorms), thus initiating participation by interested students and also provoking interdorm competition. The "Senate" system should bring representatives who will forward better communications between the student body and its government. Brandsma said. Three groups will be included in the Senate: the over-all legislative body, the judicial group, made up of a student court; and the executive branch, made up of the four officers.

Cecil Reveals Band's Semester Agenda The Hope College Band, with its first successful concert behind it, has plans for a very busy Spring semester. Under the leadership of its new conductor, Robert Cecil, the band is undertaking its first twoday trip to the Detroit area. There will be a concert on March 8 in Richmond, Mich., where Dean Nederveld, '61, now teaches, and another on March 9 in Ortonville, where Dan Ritsema, '61, is the band director.

Henry Ford Museum. A particular highlight of the season will be a concert on April 29 in Dimnent Memorial Chapel with Armando Ghitalla as guest soloist. Mr. Ghitalla is the First Trumpeter of the Boston Symphony and a regular soloist with the Boston Pops. Perhaps the best known of Mr. Ghitalla's recordings are those made with E. Power Biggs featuring Organ and Brass. He has played solo recitals in Town Hall and had also appeared as soloist with the Goldman Band. While he is on the campus the Band will sponsor a Brass Clinic for Band members and all interested musicians in the area. In addition to its out-of-town

trip and the concert featuring Mr. Ghitalla, the band has planned some outdoor concerts in the late spring, one of which will present a small jazz group made up of Band members. Commenting on his need for additional members, Mr. Cecil said, "It's still not too late to jump on our 'Bandwagon.* We especially need woodwind and percussion players.' A current activity of the Band which has proved very successful is the spirited Pep Band which has enlivened the home baskettall games. Band president Ralph Houston, who directs the Pep Band, has punned and quipped his way to fame during the halftimes.

Debate will descend from the ivory tower of tournaments at Hope this semester, and return to the audience for their enlightenment and entertainment. Under the leadership of Pi Kappa Delta, national honorary speech fraternity, preliminary plans are being made to establish a Forensic Union. The purposes of the Union, according to a Union spokesman, are: 1. The use of audience participation Parliamentary style debate, which is now popular in England, to "actively further effective and stimulating discussion of topics which either are or definitely should be vital to the student body, both collectively and individually." 2. Because a campus should be a place to debate or discuss topics of local and national importance, the Forensic Union, with the support of any and all organizations on campus, wishes to plan and serve as a clearing house for a program of intramural debates. To start this program the Union would be an organizer under the guidance of Pi Kappa Delta, with the hope that with the support of students and organizations that it can function as an independent organization. This program has flourished on other campuses. Professor Mikle, speech instructor and sponsor of the local chapter, has been responsible for organizing two intramural debates on other campuses: Ripon and Bowling Green University. To insure an orderly, mature debate the rules would be: 1. The audience, after the initial speeches for and against the topic, decide tentatively which side they support, arrange themselves accordingly in the room, and are allocated a given amount of time to speak following organization. 2. At the end of the debate, a final decision is reached by another audience vote. A quick-witted, intelligent debate squad, such as the group of students from Great Britain who have made appearances in the L S. and who may be brought to the campus next year, can often provide an enjoyable evening of entertainment and intelligent thought - provoking discussions, according to the Union spokesman. As the anchor noted last semester, students are becoming interested and aware of local and national problems, aside from the accusations of apathy by the Student Council.

View On Church Unity Told SCA By Catholic

• •

t •


"We don't care enough about Christian unity," said Mr. John Donnolly, a noted Roman Catholic layman, to 80 members of the Student Christian Association, "and that's why we have not achieved unity." Asking students to name the most pressing problems of the world today, students came up with the race problem, the problem of nuclear disarmament, the population explosion problem, but no one mentioned the problem of Christian unity — it is not important enough for us — we don't care enough, and yet with a unified Christian church the other problems can be solved more effectively. In his description of the recent Church Council at Rome, Donnelly emphasized that the Roman Church is not "monolithic," that it does allow for great freedom in many areas and that the application of the concept of "papal infallibility" is thoroughly misunderstood by most protestants. "We must not compromise, but we must rather understand each other's position, and when we do we will find that in actuality we are not very far apart." According to Donnolly, a primary problem is the statement of doctrines: in the furious hatred be-

Page 3


tween Protestants and Roman Catholics, both sides have stated their doctrines in such a way as to exaggerate the differences between them, and these statements have not always presented the actualities of belief. Both sides are looking again at the Reformation, the Roman Catholics seeing that Luther was out not to destroy the church but to purify it, and the Protestants seeing that Luther had not intended to break away, but rather to reform the church. There are, of course, still basic conflicts in doctrine which must be resolved — theologians on both sides are working hard at them and have made some real headway — but the most important problem is not that of doctrine, but rather that of prejudice, and this prejudice must be opposed from both sides with Christian love and understanding. In the course of this semester, the SCA plans to have at least two other programs to help further this understanding: a Jewish rabbi and a noted liberal (Dr. Duncan Littlefair from Grand Rapids) will speak, answer questions and debate with students, so that even if we cannot be unified we can at least do "all things in charity."

With the increasing number of student teachers at Hope College practice teaching assignments have, for the first time, included the Grand Haven School system, according to Mr. John J. Ver Beek of the Hope education department. A Coffee, sponsored by the education department, was held Thursday, Jan. 31, at 4:00 p.m. in Phelps Hall to initiate the second semester's teaching program. Invited to the occasion were 84 student teachers and their supervisory teachers, as well as college and school administrators and college faculty involved with teacher education. Other school systems in which Hope students are doing student teaching this semester include: Holland Elementary and High Schools, Holland Christian Junior High, West Ottawa Elementary and High Schools and Zeeland High.

Shell Companies Foundation, it was announced today by Dr. John Hollenbach, acting president. The first $500 grant is for unrestricted institutional use. The second and third $500 grants are for encouraging additional professional development of the individual members of the faculty and will be used by the chemistry, physics and mathematics departments of the college as requested by the foundation. The grants were presented personally by Mr. James Davidge of the Shell Oil Company's district office in Grand Rapids on Feb. 1. In accepting the gift Dr. Hollenbach said, "Your program of assistance to colleges is most imaginatively planned and gives to the college administrators and staff the psychological lift which is so often needed, as well as the financial needs to carry out some special programs."

Hope College is taking a new step toward the advancement of relations between public and private or church related schools in the community. At a banquet held last week in Phelps Hall, 14 educators representing four private schools met to consider the possibility of effecting an organization of all the schools in Holland — both public and private — whose purpose will be to solve common problems and work together for the betterment of the community. Schools represented at the invitational banquet w e r e St. Francis DeSales Catholic School, the S e v e n t h D a y Adventist School, the Christian Schools and Hope College. Although no formal action was taken, educators expressed much confidence that each school would benefit from this organization. A second meeting, to which representatives from the Holland Public Schools will be invited, has been set to establish a permanent organization. Attending the first meeting were Alvin Brouwer, J. Robert Collins, Dr. Robert DeHaan, Willam DeMots, Russel Fredricks, John Keuning, Msgn., J.A. Moleski, Mrs. Marcelline Moon, Dr. I. J. Lubbers, Miss Emma Reeverts, Frank Schwarz, Mark Vander Ark, Gerrit VanderBorgh and J. J. VerBeek.

blind. It provides training for men and women which will enable them to instruct the blind to walk with ease and greater mobility. The program consists of 36 semester hours taken over a period of 14 months. Academic and clinical work is done at Boston College and at St. Paul's Rehabilitation Center for the Blind in Newton, Mass. The curriculum includes psychology of learning, abnormal psychology, orientation to work with the blind, dynamics of blindness, nature and training of human senses, medical aspects of rehabilitation of the blind, human behavior and case work principles. Only those students who have received their bachelors' degrees are eligible. In addition they must be of good health, moral character and have visual acuity correctable to 20/20. Traineeships are provided by the U. S. Office of Vocational Rehabilitation in the amount of $38000. This covers tuition, living costs and expenses for travel in connection with the program. Applications will be received until March 31, 1963. They may be obtained by writing to: Dr. John R. Eichorn, Boston College, Graduate School, Department of Education, Chestnut. Hill 67, Mass.

In discussing French universities which offer summer courses to foreigners, M. Morot-Sir suggested Grenoble University as offering the best academic advantages. He feels that until the system of equivalent courses in American and French universities can be improved, exchange programs at the university level will not expand very rapidly.. M. Morot-Sir would also like to see more exchange opportunities for students of 14 or 15 years of age, for it is then, he feels, that one best assimilates the language and culture of another country. After the luncheon, M. MorotSir toured the campus, paying a special visit to "la maison francaise," the French House.

At each of his addresses, the Greek, who describes himself as having a "Victorian birthdate", conveyed his points to his audience in a deep British accent, punctuated with a sparkling humor. For example, on Greek "politics," he stated that "Wherever there are four Greeks, there are five opinions," or when he was speaking of the Italian rout by the Greeks in the beginning of World War II, he commented that the Germans had to turn the resources of "80 million Germans to save 40 million Italians from the clutches of eight million Greeks."

"Thieves' Carnival'': Absurd

— -



'Thieves' Carnival" by Jean Anonilh (1932) is a fanta of absurdity, written by Anouilh at the youthful age of 21. by David Kleis This play is an escape from sense and from reality, and even "from life," which in itself is a play and the people its actors. The play is more than absurdity, for lurking beneath its contrived artificiality is the beating of the human heart. The play is more than the nebulous silvered artifice," for one can catch occasional reality in the flickering of the silvery transparency. If you are willing to enter into Anouilh's strange world of fantasy and absurdity you will be eminently rewarded, for this is a delightful production of a delightful French play. The plot of the play centers around an old dowager Lady Hurf, who is bored with life, and her two lovely but different daughters, Juliette, untouched by •he cruel fingers of life and Eva, frightened by her own loneliness and envious of her sister's fresh innocence. They, along with their inefficient anr really quite simple guardian Lord Edgar, are vacationing at Vichy, where Eva and Juliette meet three thieves and fall in love with two of them. Therefore what begins as ennui in the breast of a stuffy, sophisticated old Woman turns into a conflict' of real thieves and pseudo-thieves and no thieves at all, but only leaves, and really no "thieves' carnival" only a leaves, carnival, truly "carne vale." Needless to say that in the tangle of intrigues that "spring up under one's very feet like so much vegetation," is some delicious and at times even disturbing comedy. Lady : Hurf s-desire to "escape from, life," and • its awful and dreadful boredom is the fulcrum on which the play revolves. Sue Hadliff manages to capture part of v this, woman's character but fails to convince the audience of her dominance over not only the vapid old codger, Lord Edgar, but also the thieves, whose game she limply plays along with. Lord Edgar is nicely portrayed by Larry Haverkamp both in his lack of initiative and in his utterly simple maner. The youngest a n d freshest breath in the play comes from the mouth of Marcia Voigt in her portrayal of Juliette, who must remind the audience of one of "the great Bard's" immortal young flowers by the same name. The love of Juliette for the apprentice thief Gustave is as sweet and tender as the love theme played by the musician, Don Kardux (in the third act), who again plays both his clarinet and "the Musician" superbly. Striking the most human note in the play is the elder daughter Eva, who is sensitively portrayed by Kathy Lenel as being terribly lonely and unable to find that peace by which to assuage her longings. Perhaps the most provocative scene in the play is when Eva is accused by her sister of having made a pass at Gustave. There follows a truly moving episode of the baring of Eva's soul, black with the scars of unhealing loss. Then too there are three thieves, and what a motley trio of thieves they are. Peterbono as the self-appointed leader, perhaps by age, played so naturally and comically by Bruce Gillies, not -only exhibited dexterity of hand in picking pockets, but also in handling an imaginary rapier. If Peterbono were slightly taller, one could almost imagine him in a swashbuckling role, ^ la Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., or a modern Farley Granger. Hector who finally found the face he lost only to find that Eva no longer found i t . attractive, is played by Cal Fiala, whose speaking voice is not nearly as effective as his

wildly waving hands. The third thief, Gustave, played youthfully and seriously by Mel Andringa, is not unlike another "third thief" who also at the end became "ashamed of the game." Gustave wearied of playing at the game of life, and along with the two sisters Eva and Juliette provides a clear and marked contrast with the other characters in the play, especially the Dupont Duforts, who are supremely ridiculous in their inspidity, and ironically receive just retribution for their obsequity. A1 Nicolat as the waddling obese senior member and Jim Howell as the vapid and spineless junior member compose Dupont Dufort, Sr., and Dupont Dufort, Jr., respectively. Anouilh's e x u b e r a n t play effervesces with laughter and lightheartedness, but for those who seek some dark tint in this "rosy piece," they can find it. Anouilh is not dealing with completely absurd abstractions of His leaping imagination. He, rather, is dealing with people, with persons of emotions and feelings. Therefore, because some of these persons are wont to be human, they are going to be caught in the web of a whirling world where the purity of their youth and its fantasy is in constant conflict with the impurity of their maturity and its stark reality. This play is recommended to all people everywhere who have the courage to play their youth with true zest, for this is a thing which never fails. Escape therefore from the absurdity of reality into the absurdity of Anouilh's comedy, and enjoy it with real zest for then it will be a success to all, actors, actresses and audience.

(This is a second in a series of editorials taken from the article by Stuart Chase, "Bombs, Babies, and Bulldozers," which appears in the Jan. 26 issue of SR.) There are two schools of thought seeking to mitigate the thermo-nuclear threat. One says that World War III will not come; the other that it will come but can be made "acceptable," the so-called "just-war" proposed by Robert Tucker. Opposed to these views are most of the world's scientists, a substantial number of military men, and intelligent laymen in every country. Scientists calculate that if the arms race continues, while more nations join the nuclear club, the probability cf war approaches 100 per cent. Military experts can discuss ' first strike," and "counter-strike with-bonus;" but beyond these semantic exercises, it is obvious to the careful inquirer that both the U. S. and the USSR are now equipped to eliminate each other as viable societies by exploding a few large hydrogen bombs high in the stratosphere, generating firestorms of meteorological dimensions. These can incinerate every combustible object, natural or man-made, over vast areas, including occupants of all but the deepest oxygene q u i p p e d shelters. However mighty a nation's military might may be, it cannot use nuclear power without inviting its own destruction. Imaginative men will dream on, taking refuge in "denial," and hoping for the best. People with reflective minds know that when the button is pushed, accidentally or otherwise, the country they love will in a matter of

minutes cease to exist. The fact that the enemy also ceases to exist is scant consolation. Our freedoms will be hurried along with his tyrannies. I would also like to add that "the fact that the enemy also ceases to exist," is f a r more significant than that he lies in dust and along side of you and me. I realize that we will get involved in an ethical dilemma, but nevertheless, the fact that our enemy dies and we die, despite the fact that nobody wins and everybody loses, is that there can no longer be any life. Life, any life, is sacred. The life of our enemy is as sacred to his Creator as is ours, yours and mine. I refer you to a book entitled "Nuclear Weapons and the Conflict of Conscience," edited by John C. Bennett. We the leaders and citizens of the world are mad together, mad in a cosmic sense, but sane enough in terms of cultural lag. Our leaders are playing power politics in the formal patterns appropriate to pre-nuclear times. They engage in a spirited arms race, exchange picturesque insults, rattle rockets as if they were sabers, refuse to trust their rivals in any military agreement, announce that their only concern is national security, which, they insist, is tantamount to the wellbeing of mankind and assure us that they can protect their nation's security. In the light of thermonuclear weapons, now poised in their silos, all this is preposterous nonsense, and will be so regarded by historians in 1980, if there are any historians in 1980. In the light of traditional power politics, however, it is business as usual, in direct line from Napo-

leon and Metternich through Disraeli to Kaiser Wilhelm 11. In conclusion, I cite a statement made by David R. Inglis in the book I referred you to, which is both admonition and plea: The prospective dimensions of nuclear war are so alarming that the imagination of man, which has unlocked the atom for better or for worse, must find a way to put a sudden stop to the historic succession of large - scale wars. Before we can bring ourselves to put aside our historic ways of thinking, before we can unleash the imagination of man to cope with the problem, we must n o t o n l y understand but "feel—in-our-bones" the new dimensions of nuclear war. Mankind, you and I, must examine anew the problem of nuclear war which could at any moment hurl us into the horrors of holocaust. Once before in human history a great civilization lost its sense of meaningful destiny. Man worshipped the goddess of chance, Tyche or Fortuna. Then a faith in God, stemming from the cross of Christ, opened a new era of history, not an age of purity, for history never offers that, but a time when man could again live with faith and some confidence. We cannot expect history to repeat itself. The future sadly offers no good prospect of reestablishing traditional Christendom. However, within the hearts of every feeling man everywhere is the hope that God may grant a tired world a fresh spirit to meet an age of history which no man can ever foresee, for the ways of God are past finding out.

Hiroshima Mon Amour

Masochistic Fantasy for Intellectuals? by Pauline Kael (Editor's Note: This review is a reprint of excerpts of an article in the Winter 1961/62 issue of Sight and Sound entitled "Fantasies of the Highbrow Filmgoer," by Pauline KaeL A native Califomian, she has published a number of film criticisms in national magazines. She majored in philosophy at the University of California in Berkeley.) I would like to suggest that the educated audience often uses "art" films in much the same self-indulgent way as the mass audience uses the Hollywood "product," finding wish-fulfillment in the form of cheap and easy congratulation on their sensitivities and their liberalism. By the time Alain Resnais' Hiroshima mon Amour reached American art-houses, expectations were extraordinarily high. Dwight Macdonald in Esquire has said: "It is the most original, moving, exciting and important movie I've seen in years, somehow managing to combine a love story with propaganda against war and the atomic bomb without either losing its full force." The picture opened with those intertwined nude bodies—this could be symbolic of a true intermingling, but it irresistibly set off some lewd speculations about just what was going on. And what was that stuff they were covered with ? Ashes ? Beach Sand? Gold Dust? Finally, I accepted it as symbolic bomb-ash, but I wasn't happy with. it, (Later I discovered that it was supposed to be "sweat, ashes, and dew.") Then the French girl said she had seen everything in Hiroshima, and the Japanese man told her she had seen nothing in Hiroshima. Then they said the same things over again, and again.

and perhaps again. And I lost patience. I have never understood why writers assume that repetition creates a lyric mood or underlines - meaning with profundity. My reaction is simply, "O.K., I got it the first time, let's get on with it." Now, this is obviously not how we are supposed to react to Marguerite Duras' dialogue, which is clearly intended to be musicial and contrapuntal, and I was going to try to get in the right, passive, receptive mood for a ritual experience, when some outright fraud made me sit up and pay attention. The action—or inaction—in bed was intercut with what purported to be documentary shots of the effect of the bomb on Hiroshima. Only I had seen some of the footage before in a Japanese atrocity movie that was about as documentary as Peyton Place. This clumsily staged importure made me suspect that the Japanese man didn't know Hiroshima either, and I began to look askance at the truth he was supposed to represent. Where did he get the metaphysical identity with Hiroshima ? As the film went on, and the heroine recounted her first love for a German soldier, how he had been killed on the last day of fighting, how she had been dragged away and her head shaved, how she had gone mad and been hidden away in the cellar by her shamed parents, I began to think less and less of the movie and more about why so many people were bowled over by it. Was it possibly an elaborate, masochistic fantasy for intellectuals ? Surely both sexes could identify with the girl's sexual desperation, her sensitivity and confusion — and had anyone dreamed up worse punishments

for sexuality? Only a few years ago it had looked as if James Dean of East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause had gone just about as f a r as anybody could in being misunderstood. But this heroine not only had her head shaved by people who didn't understand her love and need of the German, but she went crazy and was locked in a cellar. You can't go much further in being misunderstood. And the risk of giving offence, is this not what sends so many people to analysts—the fear that they'll go crazy if they don't get love?

man: She was talking all her emotions out—as if bed were the place to demonstrate sensibility. It's unfortunate that what people believe to be the most important things about themselves, their innermost truths and secrets —the real you or me—that we dish up when somebody looks sympathetic, is very likely to be the drivelling nonsense that we generally have not enough brains to forget about. The real you or me that we conceal because we think people won't accept it is slop—and why should anybody want it?

The Japanese, it may be noted, is rather dull and uninteresting: he says no more that an analyst might; he is simply a soundingboard. And if, being Japanese, he is supposed to represent the world's conscience, he brings an unsuitably bland, professionally sympathetic and upper class manner to the function. But everybody who has suffered sexual deprivation—and who hasn't?—can identify with her and perhaps fantasize brutal parents and cellars. Even her insanity can be equated with those rough nights when a love affair fell apart or that nervous exhaustion at the end of the academic year that sends so many to the hospital or the psychiatric clinic. It seemed to be a woman's picture—in the most derogatory sense of the term. And still she went on talking: her feelings, her doubts, her memories, kept pouring out. It began to seem like True Confessions at the higher levels of spiritual and sexual communion; and I decided the great lesson for us all was to shut up. The woman (beautifully as Emmanuelle Riva interpreted her) was exposing one of the worst faults of intelligent modem we-

But here was the audience soaking it up—audiences of social workers, scientists, doctors, architects, professors—living and loving and suffering just like the stenographer watching Susan Hayward. Are the experiences involved really so different? Few of us have seen our lovers killed by partisan bullets, but something kills love anyway—something always does—and it's probably gratifying for many people to identify with a heroine who isn't responsible: it is the insane world that has punished her for her sexual expression. Emmanuelle Riva's sexual expression is f a r more forthright than a Hollywood heroine's, which makes it more appealing to an educated audience, and, of course, her chaiv acter and her manner of indicating her emotional problems have a higher "tone." But what does her sad story have to do with Hiroshima and the bomb? Would not some other psycho-sexual story of deprivation say, Camille or Stella Dallas) be just as relevant to the horrors of war if it were set in Hiroshima? It would seem so. However, the setting itself explains another as-

Questions The Grader God, Grades and the Graded I'm confused. Do grades count or don't they? Is it what you get out of a course, what you put in to it or how long you talk to the professor that counts? Last year when I had three "B's" and a "C" in Old Testament as compared to another student's two "B's," a /C" and a "D" and the Reverend Ponstein gave him a "B" and me a "C" was it the grade that counted? Or was it the answer that Mr. Ponstein gave me when I asked him about my grade that matters ? He stood there with the chairman of the department and said, "Well, you get "C's" in the rest of your courses, don't you?" Has Dr. Van Putten ever read General Academic Regulation C in the Student Record Booklet? Is that why I sat through those stimulating readings or was it to get a "B"? Does it matter that a question was never asked in either direction for the whole semester? And, oh yes, have you ever heard of a class in which half the group wrote their term papers on the wrong topic ? Are college professors obligated to discuss triangles, the Women's Literary Club, the depth of snow at the beach, and the best brand of snow shoes available or would it not be better to teach something of the subject matter? If Mr. Ponstein marks according to your other grades can anyone tell me what system Dr. Mueller is using? " —Ron Venhuizen

Hiroshima... (Continued from page 6) pect of the film's strong appeal, particularly to liberal intellectuals. There is a crucial bit of dialogue: "They make movies to sell soap, why not a movie to sell peace?" I don't know how many movies you have gone to lately that were made to sell soap, but American movies are like advertisements, and we can certainly assume that indirectly they sell a way of life that includes soap as well as an infinity of other products. But what makes the dialogue crucial is that the audience for Hiroshima mon Amour feels virtuous because they want to buy peace. And the question I want to ask is: who's selling it?

Grades As an anchor editorial noted last year at this time, there was concern then with a perennial problem of grades, that device to judge achievement and learning. The problem is with us again this year, and probably in greater force. Grades are a necessary evil under which this, and most other, colleges continue to labor. Wesleyan College in Connecticut and Princeton University are noted as being among the few colleges in the nation who have partially rid themselves of the problem. Having a low student to professor ratio, these schools are able to establish a personal relationship between students and professors, much like senior seminars. These schools are able to do this because of the greater financial bases than Hope from which to work. At Princeton, seniors have few if any required coursps, with the responsibility and final standing in college hanging on a "senior thesis," in a major subject. Returning to the subject of grades as being evil: why are they so evil? According to the letter to the editor this week, injustice is the failure of grades. And this is the point, methods of determining grades are not an absolute standard, but relative, personal and different from professor to professor. This is the reality of the situation and of human being. The implications of this observation are two. The student must operate at two levels: 1) that of actual learning, of the scholar; and 2) that of the salesman, i.e. he must sell himself to the professor. It is a by-product of the


system that a professor buys the wrong product, just as student cheating on chapel cards is a by product of the system and not necessarily part of the system. Another is that students often have forgotten the first in quest of the second. Some student councils at large universities distribute information to the student body on how each member of the faculty grades. Without being specific, the categories into which the aberrations of Hope professors fall are: 1) Judging by previous grades you have received from them and other profs. 2) Giving favoritism to a student who has a pleasing personality. 3) Judging by a curve in some courses and absolute standards in others, i.e. the average can then be a "D", "C", or "B", depending on an average or an absolute. 4) Judging by placing value on growth throughout a semester or on an average of the total semester's grades. With this dual necessary character of the student, you the student should consider your education in two lights: as set forth in the College Catalogue and secondly as the political situation demands. A sage once said that to complete those requirements for graduation and to receive that sheepskin requires 90% politics and 10% learning. It is a shame the percentages are not the reverse, but these are the realities of life.

Outline for a Sermon by Jim Michmerhuizen.

In the next few weeks I am going to talk as clearly and as directly as possible about individuals and institutions. I propose to use Hope College as a case in point, for two reasons. (1) Of all possible examples, Hope College and the individuals of which it is constituted are closest to me; i.e. I know more about this institution and these people than I do about Harvard or the Assembly of God or the American Medical Association or for that matter the United States government (2) I intend that what I am going to say will,

in spite of its general ramifications, point directly to the root, the one root, of all those conflicts which appear in the life of this college as conflicts between individual people and the institution. It is said of modern man that he is alienated. In various contexts he appears as alienated from society, from God, and from himself. In the next few weeks I will show that one cannot get to the root of at least some of the problems of Hope College until one has realized that Hope students are, in the above respect, no less "modern" than men anywhere today. I began last week by talking about student attitudes toward chapel, and concluded that the only possible situation in which a morning chapel service — daily — would be meaningful, would be one in which the students' attendance would be entirely voluntary. That must now be clarified: the abolition of all attendance requirements will not

Notes From The Underground

Last week I talked about rules, and observed that like all people Hope College students are fond — in a way — of the very rules that they openly rebel against I have heard some faculty members conclude from this that there should be more and presumably stricter rules rather than less. Such a position arises from a total failure to comprehend either the reason for rules or for the continual rebellion and attempted rebellion against them.


so much cause a solution of student-administration tensions, as result from such a solution. What that means will become clear in future columns. I will begin next week with a short discussion of a subject often mentioned in freshman bull sessions — Hypocrisy.

by Steve DePree Wednesday night Hope College compiled their eighth consecutive MIAA basketball victory against Olivet College in a runaway contest at the Civic Center where the Flying Dutchmen triumphed by a score of 84-53.


SUSPENSE — Hope players Gary Nederveld, 20, Clare Van Wieren, 54, and Glenn Van Wieren, 44 watch to see if Gary's shot goes in. Hope whipped Albion 94-64.

"Spider" Vander Hill and Clare Van Wieren shot beautifully in the first half to help the Blue and Orange jump to a 41-22 halftime lead. The freshmandominated Comets never endangtred Hope in the initial half as they compiled a cold 21 per cent field g o a l percentage. Even though Olivet held the height advantage, they could not head off Hope's sharpshooting squad. The second half showed the Flying Dutchmen repeating the same story with a different cast. Reserves Chuck Veurink and Ron TeBeest aided Hope's cause while they increased the lead steadily. The Blue and Orange had a 34 per cent field goal average during the course of the last half. Four Hope players scored in double figures with high game honors going to "Spider" Van-

In a game marked by several scoring surges on both sides, the Hope JV's defeated the "H" Club, 72-64. Chris Buys led the scoring column with 19 points, followed by Bruce Menning with 1C. For the "H" Club both Jon Schoon and Vern Sterk tallied 14, and Tom Cousineau had 13.

Hope's Offense ISeors Century Scoring Mark Hope's potent offense again approached the century mark as they defeated the Britons of Albion College, 94-64, for their 7th consecutive MIAA victory last Saturday night at the Cine Center. The Britons remained very much in the game during the first quarter and even held an 11-10 lead midway through the first half. Here, however, the Dutch shook off their shoddy play and threw their offense into high gear. Led by Clare Van Wieren, they rifled home six straight baskets to walk off the floor with a comfortable 45-27 half-time lead. This onslaught continued in the second half and with nine minutes left in the game Hope held a 71-41 lead. Here the reserves took over and functioned well in ably supporting the Dutch game. Gig K q p e r and Ron Te Beest led the reserve portion of the game with seven points each while Clare Van Wieren with 21, Glenn Van Wieren with 18, and "Spider" with 16 points, led the recrulars.
