P&M To Present

Shaw's Pygmalion Bernard Shaw's five act romance, Pygmalion, is to be the s p r i n g production of P a l e t t e and Masque. It will be given f o u r evenings, March 11, 12, 14 and 15. The story is a f a m i l i a r one based upon the Pygmalion-Galatea experiment. An egotistical t e a c h e r of the Science of phonetics, in one of his f r e q u e n t searches f o r new sounds, stumbles one rainy night upon the cockney Eliga Boolittle. A conversation ensues and the following day Eliga presents herself and all her worldly wealth a t Professor Higgin's door to be t a u g h t "to speak like a lady in a flower shop". The decision of Higgins to undertake the ordeal, and the keen delineation of the c h a r a c t e r change which results, t o g e t h e r with the problem presented by a certain affinity each f e e l s for the other, constitutes a really provocative play f o r an audience interested in a light and delightful evening. In the role of Eliga Doolittle is J a n e t Baird. P r o f e s s o r Higgins will be portrayed by Pete deMoya In the s u p p o r t i n g roles a r e J e r r y Kruyf as Colonel Pickering, foil to Higgins; Joyce Vanderborgh as Mrs. Pearce, the housekeeper; Don Baird as Alfred Doolittle, f a t h e r of E l i g a ; J e r r y Redeker as Freddy E y n s f o r d Hill, a young r o m a n t i c ; Donna R a y m e r a s Mrs. E y n s f o r d Hill, a would-be a r i s t o c r a t ; Connie Miller as Miss E y n s f o r d Hill, a carbon of her mother; Darlyne DeTuncq as Mrs. Higgins, the mother of the p r o f e s s o r ; and J u d y R y p m a as the parlor maid.

On Class Cuts

Ruled By Absence Committee

Co-Chairmen R e d a Rynbrandt and M a r g a r e t Hospers have announced t h a t prizes will be awarded to the f r a t e r n i t y and sorority whose booths take in the most money at the event. A small admission c h a r g e will entitle those who attend to an evening of f u n at the various booths, and also a talent show, which p r o g r a m chairmen Joyce Van D o o m and K a r a g a y H a r d y have described as being a " p r o g r a m of undiscovered hope t a l e n t . "

A basic change was made recently by the absence committee in class attendance rulings. In the past an excessive number of cuts for any semester automatically added a half hour to the g r a d u a tion requirements. The new ruling omits the general college penalty and places the responsibility upon the individual professors. The committee, in passing the new ruling, stressed the importance of class attendance as an essential p a r t of The Country F a i r will begin at the educational process at Hope eight o'clock, with the p r o g r a m College.

The new ruling also pre-supposes the problem of non-attendance lies with the student.

Student Union Will Stimulate Sad State Of School Spirit Hope is dying. It is dying slowly, almost unnoticeably. To see it die is a sad thing, especially f o r the upperclassmen who have seen the life it once had. I t s spirit is gone — gone f r o m sports, e x t r a c u r r i c u l a r activities and social life. The signs are everywhere — the lack of cheering at g a m e s , the skeletal remains of departmental clubs, the pathetic attendance at student council parties, and the inertia of a student council t h a t does nothing more t h a n exist.

It shows t h a t they don't care about their class, t h e i r f r a t e r n i t y o r sorority, or about t h e i r school. As a problem it is easily rationalized.

IN REVIEW L a s t Sunday's recital by the f a c u l t y s t r i n g q u a r t e t was, unf o r t u n a t e l y somewhat inferior to what we have come to expect.

The proposed union would be located in t h e b a s e m e n t of Van Raalte and would occupy the a r e a now devoted to t h e men's smoking room and the Kletz.

If it doesn't m a t e r i a l ize all we can look f o r w a r d to is a g r e a t e r decline and t h e end of the even now limited student voice on Hope's campus.

Dear Mom and Dad: I'm sorry you haven't heard f r o m me in awhile, but we all had a little fire here in the dorm the day finals were over and I'm a f r a i d my pen got thrown in d u r i n g all the frenzied excitement, so my roommate and I a r e sharing one. I spent the m o s t h o r r i f y i n g week of my entire life last week. I know why they call it final week — it's because you w a n t to m a k e it the last week you spend in college by the t i m e you g e t t h r o u g h . The only people who enjoy it are the f a c u l t y and it's a m a z i n g how they brighten up during final season. Teachers I never saw smile before positively beamed as they went into a test. And it's certainly s t r a n g e the correlation you find between g r e a t broad smiles and deadly e x a m s . S t r a n g e indeed. It does make one wonder! Registration was p r e t t y deadly, too. I had the neatest schedule a r r a n g e d — only morning classes, but t h e y said I had to take more t h a n seven hours, so now I go 'til three o'clock every day. Boy, it's not h a r d to get discouraged around here. The weekend between semesters made up f o r it in part, though. It was so wonderful having absolutely nothing to do. Joe took me tobogg a n n i n g and we had a huge fight. It was the first time I'd ever gone and I wore my new light g r a y flannel slacks and the very first time we went down t h e hill, Joe sat down and put his f e e t r i g h t in my lap and my slacks were just black. Sometimes I wonder if he has any sense a t all. I told him on the way home t h a t I t h o u g h t it w a s a p r e t t y silly sport when you drove and drove someplace and then only went down a hill once, but he said t h a t was the way it went in sports. Doesn't make much sense to me. I haven't seen Joe very much since then. They have a n o t h e r sort of a week on this c a m p u s t h a t ' s almost as bad a s final week. They call it Dutch T r e a t Week and it really is poor. Joe had a date for every single night except Thursday, so I bought him a cup of coffee. I was going to take him to a movie, but he had already seen them both with other girls. I w a s so miserable. I even went to the Dean about it, but no help t h e r e . It's a t r a d i t i o n and one we're all supposed to love. Well, everyone else may love it, b u t I think the whole idea is a w f u l . I put my n a m e in t h e bachelor bank about t h i r t y times, so I could show Joe a t h i n g or two, and I got d r a w n , too, only the boy that drew me s t a r t e d going steady t h a t night, so we didn't go out. It's sort of hard to believe that t h e s e a r e the happiest days of your life. Well, my r o o m m a t e has been pleading f o r h e r pen f o r about ten minutes, so I guess I'd better sign off.

The 14th of F e b r u a r y means the arrival of St. Valentine's Day — and more if you belong to the Hope student body, because every year this holiday brings with it the traditional Dutch T r e a t Week. This year, because St. Valentine's Day fell on a Monday, Dutch T r e a t Week is preceding the f a m o u s day of h e a r t s and flowers. Dutch T r e a t Week began upon request of one of the Hope students in 1932. He suggested it as a week in which the girls might have an opportunity to have the upper hand in the d a t i n g situation f o r just one week. The plan was presented to the students in the Anchor and a c a m p u s vote was taken which resulted in the acceptance of the plan which has now evolved into a firmly entrenched tradition. The idea was innovated in an a t t e m p t to relieve the strain on the college m a n ' s wallet and give the girls a chance. U n d e r the plan, the girl is definitely the "boss". At least, she holds the purses t r i n g s ! According to the original rules, if a boy asked a girl out, he paid f o r the entire date and if a girl invited the boy, she paid half the expense. By clever maneuvering someplace, as it now stands, when the girl invites . . . she pays all. Somehow, the girls don't seem to mind; they think the freedom and opportunity to pick and choose t h a t comes with assuming the p a r t of the a g g r e s s o r well worth the expense involved. Some feel it is comparable in importance only to the day women received the privilege of voting. There's another obvious advantage, too.' Because t h e y ' r e in control, the girls think they receive much more attention f r o m the male set. The men seem suddenly to be transfigured into the most chivalrous and obliging young gentlemen. There seems to be a direct correlation between the change in the men and the.radvent of Dutch T r e a t Week. The girls a r e n ' t the only ones who profit. The fellows have the obvious a d v a n t a g e of no expense while e n j o y i n g female companionship. They also forego all responsibility f o r planning activities, and can j u s t relax and wait f o r the phone to ring. F o r both the male and female population, Dutch T r e a t W e e k seems to be a h a p p y occasion, but all a r e ready and willing to return to their r i g h t f u l places when the week is over.

ceived f r o m concerned alumni and f r i e n d s of Hope College in r e f e r ence to the "chapel tower collapse" f e a t u r e which ran in the last issue. If the story, which was meant to be humorous, did not achieve its purpose, the repercussions f r o m it certainly did. Although we are sorry t h a t the story was misunderstood, we cannot r e f r a i n f r o m publishing this example of the mix-up that resulted. Feb. 4, 1955 Dear Delia: T h a n k s f o r sending the Hope College Anchor. I was so surprised and shocked to read about the destruction of the chapel tower. How in t h e world did it ever happen, or do they know y e t ? I know you are all upset about it — am s o r r y t h a t it happened and do hope its as good as new again. This is just a note of s y m p a t h y and hope I'll h e a r about it soon.

With Love ( N a m e withheld)

Rev. L a r r y Love, pastor of the Bethany P r e s b y t e r i a n Church of F o r t Lauderdale, Florida, w a s the leader of Hope's annual Religious E m p h a s i s Week. During the f o u r day series he discussed the topics " F a i t h and Life." Faith, he determined, must be centered on Christ, and its aim is to fashion t h e individual a f t e r Him; life, to be m e a n i n g f u l , must be lived in Christ, as it came f r o m Him. This message is very pertinent. Students often feel t h a t the abundance of knowledge t h a t they gain in college makes them able to run their own lives. Rev. Love stressed the fact t h a t man is not really a d j u s t e d nor h a p p y until he realizes t h a t his life must be centered upon Christ and his being in intimate relationship with God. This intimate relationship is a vital reality with God t h r o u g h Christ. The week was also full of devotional meetings, consultations, and meditations. In the a f t e r n o o n s and evenings s t u d e n t s could take a d v a n t a g e of the opportunity to meet Rev. Love and to discuss their personal problems. Those who felt the lack of p r a y e r were able to go to the Chapel f o r private meditations. The dorms and f r a t e r n i t i e s exchanged devotional teams. F o r a denominational school this seems an excellent way of beginning a semester.

At a recent meeting Bob Lesniak was named chairman of the Knick booth f o r the Penny Carnival. It was also decided t h a t alumni newsletters will again be sent out this year. P r e p a r a t i o n s are now under way.
