can f r a m e into a news story. Yet this is OIK of Hope's most influential groups. The group which we have in mind is the group that meets selected mornings of each week for prayer. In that group are some of Hope's linest and most sincere students who meet at this time of morning because they feel that getting a Christian education means more than attending classes; it means also a development of a well-rounded personality, the high point and most enduring aspccl of which is the spiritual. They believe irrevocably that "prayer is the sword of the saints" and with that sword set out to light evil and exalt good. Their radiating inlluence pervades the campus almsophere and somehow we feel the warm touch of (lod's answer to prayer in much of campus life because of this "leavening" influence.

Annual All-College Sing Scheduled For Late April

B. Goodman




Up to 1/2 Off


Holland, Mich.

My shovel has been moved to more fertile terra, and henceforth I shall dip deep into the depths and deliver dutifully dire ditties about anything I happen to think of. It's really quite sad, leaving the sports page, but Coach Hinga said he was getting disgusted with reading all those results before the games were played. So I said it was okayby me, I'd resign. . . . The New Look and all the arguments that go with it, and agin it, have begun to wear thin, so why not, for this month, have a Man1 of the Week to talk about. I'll pick the first one; his name is Algernon Appelate, and he s in his last year at Hope. There are many reasons why Algernon should have this obvious distinction, but one is outstanding. Algernon complained only about O N E of his final grades. I believe, and so will you when you hear the sad tale, that he is perfectly justified in his beef. It seems Algernon has been writing term papers on various subjects for various profs for four years; he very regularly received " B " on these papers, and decided'the time had arrived when he should receive " A . " So Algy borrowed a paper from a Fraternity brother, a beautiful 30-page job, with a beautiful " A " in a bold, red, barely legible scrawl. Algy carefully typed out this entire paper, taking more time on it than he would have by writing one himself. He turned it into the prof long before the date on which it was due. He got it back. On the beautiful cover, in a bold, red, barely legible scrawl, was a "B." Same red-pencil, same bold, barely legible scrawl, same prof, same paper. Hut a "B." Algernon should be the first Man of the Week . . . only one thing, Algy isn't with us any more. He's at Calvin! I've seen a lot of basketball, and so have you, but 1 doubt if either of us has seen a better ball game than the Albion contest. Especially noteworthy was the officiating. Synchronization of the whistles, it seemed. A clean game, well played by both squads, evenly matched all the way through. Those are the teams that will tie the championship, without a doubt, and also enter a play-off on a neutral floor. Your guess is as god as mine as to THAT outcome. NOTICE: If you arrive two hours early for a game, please crawl onto your neighbor's; lap to make room for him that arrives a half-hour late. And if he so steps as to rip your rear pants pocket, think nothing of it, chalk it up to experience.

On April 30, the annual AllCollege Sing will be held in the Chapel auditorium with all the fraternities and sororities participating. The following rules f o r this event have been announced: 1. The COMPLETE ACTIVE membership of each society is required to take part. The director shall be an active member of the society. All preparation and presentation must be entirely under student direction. . 2 . Each group will sing the society song and another selection of its own choice. 3. Judging will be entirely on the performance itself. Dress and other special f e a t u r e s will be given little consideration. 4. Musical selections with solo parts will not be accepted.

P & M Starts Work Maassen Heads On Religious Play Sociology Group P. & M. has begun work on a religious play "The Finger of God" which will be ready for studio performance about the first week of March and will be available to the general public a f t e r that date. The c h a r a c t e r s in the play are Douglas Cameron, Jack Boeskool, and Barbara Snell. Mrs. Avison is acting as director. Chekau's "Marriage Proposal", which was recently presented to P. & M. members, is being re-costumed and otherwise renovated and will be presented at the Zeeland City Hall on February 24 for members of the Zeeland Women's Literary Club and high school senior girls. The cast of this play is composed of Ray Martin, Dick Leonard, and Lucille Brunsting, and the director is Ray Martin.



ATTENTION, ALL DLTCH STUDENTS: I received a letter from a Paw I'aw, Michigan, High school teacher, telling of a senior student in her class who comes from Java. His name is Carl Van Stelle, and he would like very much to hear from some of the Dutchmen here. Carl was a prisoner for three years in various J a p camps in Java, and he thinks some of our students from there may have been in the same place. His address: Carl Van Stelle, GO.'i No. Kalamazoo Paw Paw, Mich. See you again. FROLICS!

Betty Boelkins opened the program by reading a sketch of the life of Bizet, followed by a story of the opera " C a r m e n " as told by Marcella Westerman. Gerry Hirschy, Jo Ann Moessner, and Margaret Wolflfensperger gave a short skit from " C a r m e n " a f t e r which records of different parts of the opera were played.

Exigencies of Teaching Bother Student Teacher I patiently wait f o r the hour bell to ring before I e n t e r Room 27 of Holland J u n i o r High School.

C a u g h t amidst t h e pressing of a r m s and legs and bobbing heads, I am pushed back to Room 25. P u t t i n g on my most severe and dignified " t e a c h e r " look, I cry, "Excuse me, please!" A miracle happens — I am heading back in the r i g h t direction, but am carried beyond to Room 28. 1 stand clinging to the wall until the avalanche has subsided and when th6 halls are finally cleared, sedately enter my classroom. Here, to my chagrin, resound the words, "Teacher's late!" Finally the class is und2r control. I consult my lesson plan; t h e questions are there, but W H A T will be the a n s w e r s ? " W h a t do we call a p a r t of n drama in which a single actor speaks alone? I ask. "A monologue," they cry. "Fine. What do we call a conversation between two p e r s o n s ?

"Don't say ' a i n ' t ' and look on with someone else." Ronnie choses to sit with his bosom friend, George. This idea w a s just as good as mixing dynamite with fire. The class become restless and 1 become rigid. Finally I exclaim, "Because you are not willing to devote your study period to study, I am going to give you a spelling test." A f t e r the papers have been written, exchanged, and corrected. I discover the scores range thus: one person received 85%, one 90% and 27 received 100%. How odd! The class is usually so poor at spelling. I praise them on the fine effort they have put f o r t h on their spelling and how this just goes to prove t h a t all of them can become good spellers. I turn toward the blackboard. There on the board appear the twenty spelling words I had failed to erase before giving the test.

The Orange and Blue threatened to run away with the game once more at the beginning of the second half, but again the Britons calmly cut a 51-39 Hope lead to 51-49. Hope managed to hold to the lead throughout the second half, though the margin remained at two points until the Dutchmen, leading 67-65, pulled ahead, first, 71-65, then 75-66, and finally 84-70, before coming up with the ultimate 85-71 score.

Schouten's Cagers Win 7th Tilt, 37-34

Hope's Jayvees chalked up their seventh straight win of the season in last week's Hope-Albion preliminary affair by coming from behind to take a 37-34 decision from Aliens' Crosleys of the cityamateur league. Starting slowly the Junior Dutchmen found themselves on the short end of a 17-13 halftime score. Forward Bill Hinga, dependable and consistent performer, tallied all but three of the JV's first half effort. In the second half Coach Schouten's crew showed more of their former sparkle as, paced by "Stretch" Wagner's 11 markers, they forged ahead of the Crosleys and gained their closest decision of the current campaign. Hinga and Wagner led the scoring with 12 and 11 points, respectively. Van Dyke had 10 to lead the strong Allen quintet.

Hope got off to a flying start at the outset of the battle as Mulder hit on his first two tries and Vande Wege on a long one to give the locals a (>-() advantage before a single minute had expired. But Albion calmly called time and, after pulling themselves together, knotted the count at 11-all. During the remainder of the first half the lead changed hands 11 times and the score was deadlocked on five other occasions. It was not until the closing minutes of the half that the Dutch forged ahead from a 37-33 deficit to a 42-37 intermission lead.

Dutchmen Defeat Percy Jones, 68-40 - Traveling down to Battle Creek during examination week, Hope resumed their winning ways with a 68-40 conquest of the soldiers from Percy Jones General Hospital. The boys from Holland were never behind as they coasted to an easy win following a 31-19 intermission lead. Substitute Harve Buter netted 18 points, all from the field, to easily pace the Dutch scoring. Herk Buter, regular center, and Bob Becksfort, reserve forward, followed with 9 apiece. Although the score was decidedly lop-sided the boys in Orange and Blue were definitely not up to par. Coach Hinga substituted freely in an effort to shake his squad out of their two-conference-gam'e losing streak. Indicative of the fact that the Dutchmen were off in their performance was the fact t h a t they converted only 6 of 21 attempts from the charity lane and no regulars were able to tally more than 9 points during the game. High point man for the Soldiers, who, though outclassed, played consistent ball throughout, was Andacatta, who found the hoop f o r 15 points.

sin's 52-47 conquest of Illinois at Madison and their subsequent 5736 setback a few weeks later at Champaign. Minnesota didn't have any trouble a t all with Iowa at Minneapolis, winn'ng, 76-58, over one of the conference's tougher teams; but when they traveled to Bloomington, Indiana, to meet a mediocre Hoosier squad, they were thumped, 58-54. However, we don't have to delve into the Big Nine to see the homefloor-advantage rule in action: right here in our own MIAA, it seems to bo working overtime with just as much consistency. In seven games played thus f a r between the four top schools only once has a traveling crew walked away triumphant — t h a t time was Albion's 47-39 decision over Kalamazoo at the Hornets' hive. Alma managed to squeeze out a 49-48 verdict at the expense of a road-bound Dutch team, but anyone who sides with Alma in their return engagement late next month here in Holland will be blushing a deep maroon for a good many days later. All we desire from this homefloor - advantage "regulation" is that it won't be in effect tomorrow night when the Hornets' attempt to get back the stingers they so decisively lost early in the season at the local armory. Chances are, the Dutch will win anyway—home floor advantage or not — just the same, we'll feel a lot better Saturday morning when that game is on the books. A Hope win would practically cinch a piece of the MIAA championship for 1948.
