Ten Delegates Attend Midwest

IRC Conference

Ten members o f t h e Hope College International Relations Club went to Chicago last week-end, attending the annual M i d w e s t Regional Conference of International Relations Clubs at De Paul University.

achy. Alberta Litts, Charles Lemmen, project chairman for the Hope Club; David Kleis, Kirstin Blank, Judy Hoffman and Jack Jenner. Four of the Hope students presented papers at the conference.

The theme of the conference was United States Foreign Policy and Asia.

Miss Alberta Litts presented an examination of the potential for the development of democratic ideals in Southeast Asia, and Miss Justine Dakin dealt with the background of the Sino-Indian and P a k i s t a n i boundary disputes.

Featured speakers a t the conference were Senator P a u l Douglas of Illinois, the Deputy Director of Chinese Affairs from the U. S. State Department and Sarag El Dine, Consul General of the United Arab Republic. Hope students attending the two day meeting were Ronald Chandler, president of the Hope Club; Justine Dakin, secretary of the local club, Wa-el Kar-

Sponsoring Alaskan Night A special Alaskan Night in the dining halls will be held February 18 according to Mr. Robert Dressner. Slater Food Service is sponsoring this special evening. The menu f o r the evening includes a seafood dinner, strawberry shortcake (strawberries being prevelent in Alaska), and a special Alaskan dish prepared from an Alaskan recipe obtained from Jim Thomas who hails from Alaska.

Dave Kleis analyzed the importance of political neutralism to economic development in the Asian countries, and Ron Chandler dealt with the Near East in a paper on Arab-Israeli relations. Serving as chairman for a panel on the Baghdad Pact was Charles Lemmen, and Judy Hoffman presided over one of the other panels. Kirstin Blank, Jack Jenner and Wa-el Karachy were participating as discussants in various phases of the conference. Dr. Paul G. Fried, faculty adviser of the Hope International Relations Club accompanied the group.

On December 7, 1959, the eight presidents of the colleges in the M.I.A.A. met in conjunction with a meeting of the athletic directors of the member schools. Serious concern was expressed about policies and practices in athletics and the decision was reached that unless some immediate action was taken, the league might well dissolve. Following lengthy discus(Cont'd on page 4)

Hope Library Receives Grant Hope College is among 77 college libraries that has been awarded a grant to strengthen its resources by the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association. Mr. Philip Van Eyl of the Hope Psychology Department, and Mr. John May, College Librarian, made application f o r the grant last summer. The grant will be used for the purchase of books and related materials in psychology. Other Michigan colleges receiving similar grants were Albion and Calvin.

No Post-Season Tournaments The MIAA Conference, in which Hope College is a member, has disallowed participation in post-season tournaments outside the conference. This ruling struck the campus of Hope College with considerable force. We were all disappointed over it, and some were bitter. We definitely ar hurt as f a r as this opportunity for increased prestige in basketball is concerned. But it is a very superficial hurt. As a mild salve to those who are so mightily disturbed by this ruling there are two considerations that are conveniently overlooked while they cry about this so-called loss of incentive and loss of high athletic standards in the MIAA. For one thing, Hope was by no means assured a tournament invitation. Northern Michigan has a better record than ours, and they defeated us. The second consideration is that of the NCAA ruling that prohibits freshmen from varsity participation in schools numbering more than 750 male students. There are three freshmen on our varsity squad, one of them on the starting team. They are a part of the team. This alone would prevent us from accepting a tournament bid. Of course these considerations a r e merely superficial ointments, — but for a superficial infliction. The principle underlying the MIAA ruling is a sound one, both athletically and educationally. Sports play an important role in the MIAA schools, as it does throughout America. But it bursts out of proportion and destroys its own vital role when it is elevated to primacy. We all know that Hillsdale College does intensive scouting and offers several dozen football scholarships. Here lies the incentive that brought about the MIAA ruling. Hillsdale played football in order to receive bowl invitations.


Hope College and the rest of MIAA were her pawns while she made herself look good in the hopeful prospect of bowl games. We were pitting our athletes against players that were paid to smear us and every other team as much as possible so that their record would appear extra impressive to bowl officials.

Following the dinner hour, Jim Thomas will show his slides of Alaska and will deliver a talk with these slides entitled "Send Me Men to Match My Mountains." The Slater System sponsored a Hawaiian night first semester to honor the 50th state.

No Post-Season Tournaments

Spice and Crumbs

(Cont'd from page 1) We disparage "principle" as being too lofty and unrealistic when it effects us, but the principle underlying this entire issue is clearly a sound one. Sports will be kept for its value of fun for its own sake, its vigorous competitiveness, its body and character building qualities, and for spectator enjoyment, rather than for the sake of national acclaim at the expense of schools that practice a more balanced sports policy. Crying about the downfall of high standards in the quality of MIAA sports is invalid. Calvin and Albion have always been top contenders in MIAA competition, and they have always followed a self-enforced policy prohibiting post-season tournaments. A few years ago Calvin College was consistently at the top of the league, and not because of the "incentive" of national tournaments, because she wouldn't have accepted any bids anyway. Also, were the two leading MIAA basketball stars attracted to Hope College because of the opportunity to participate in tournaments at Wheaton and Evansville? Hope never attended such tournaments until two years ago. Clearly the quality of our athletics is not determined by post-season tournaments. Educationally speaking, the participation of Hope's basketball team in the NCAA national finals brought out the fact that we don't know how to take such activities in our stride. Personal decision to attend final playoffs was purely a matter of individual choice and responsibility. The entire academic program (in behalf of which our college was formed) need not come to a halt at the immature demands of students to have the administration stop classes for the duration of the playoffs. The regional tournaments at Wheaton were a completely enjoyable weekend festivity for all, but our team was. able to go beyond this. They went to Evansville, which certainly was rough on their own studies, but the school would be defeating its purpose for existence in letting out 1200 students, most of whom could not afford the trip to Evansville anyway. If suffering is the word for it, Hope College certainly does "suffer" from this ruling, if indeed we would have been invited to the Great Lakes Regional. But we are definitely not being purposefully punished for anything. Hope College does not offer athletic scholarships; our sports program is a complete and strong one; it fulfills well its. vital role in our educational institution and contributes to a strong and well-balanced Hope College. If we were to be objective about the MIAA ruling it would be quite clear that this ruling actually expresses the very sportsmanship ethics that is embodied in the Hope College sports program. For the general good of MIAA sports, and educationally, the ruling is a good one. Our team is the finest in Hope's history for reasons other than tournament aspirations. No doubt we can all look forward to a certain "G-day" when we can offer deserving praise and sincere congratulation to a team of excellent athletes and true sportsmen.

Review: Breakfast At Tiffany's/ By Truman Capote; Speak In Whisper by Richard J. Jaarsma Holly Golighty is a phony. 0 . J. Herman, her onetime Hollywood agent and now her paternal friend, says so. But there is a difference, he c l a i m s , "She's a real phony. She believes all this . . . that she believes." And that, more or less, is Holly Golightly; a wild, tender debutante who's address is no place and whose personal cards list her home as "Traveling." • • » Her apartment is the headquarters of an assortment of drug addicts, homesexulas, stuttering chorus girls, naval officers and a minor diplomat named Juan. Rusty Trawlers, a lover of Holly's now gone to seed also frequently drops in for a drink, necessitating kid gloves for all in the room when he comes around. Ilis father was an anchist and his mother died of shock when his father was killed by one of his brothers in the trade, leaving Rusty a millionare at the age of five. With such characters the plot is spicy and tragic at the same time. Rusty marries the stuttering chorus girl, Mag Wildwood, and Holly takes up with Juan, the


Hautzig Presents Concert At Civic Monday by Jim Michmerhuizen Mr. Walter Hautzig marched onto the stage of the Holland Civic Center last Monday night, glanced at the audience and gravely acknowledged its applause, and proceeded to bang, thump, growl and hum his way through one of the finest concerts of the season. With a curious blend of nonchalance and spine-tingling en-

^ " l ® &

ergy he demonstrated his mastery of Mozart, Schubert, Debussy, and particularly Chopin. The concert began with a charming little aperitif in the form of — and this was a welcome switch from the usual Bach-Busoni transcription — a Marcello-Bach aria, transcribed by the master from a concerto for oboe and strings by Benedetto Marcello.

Mr. Hautzig appeared, during the performance of this tiny work, to be wondering where all the sound was going to, as did the audience. Once accustomed, or rather resigned, to the acoustics of the auditorium, he appeared more at ease, and gave a superlative rendition of a short passacaglia by Handel and the F minor fantasia, K. 608, by Mozart — the same that was performed here last fall by Carl Weinrich. A pre-intermission c l i m a x was the Schubert fantasy; under Mr. Hautzig's hands this difficult work became a thing alive, vigorous and unforgettable. FW better or worse, this dynamism appeared unabated in the Debussy that followed the intermission, and rendered the last two of Bartok's Roumanian Folk Dances almost unintelligible in the tempo at which Mr. Hautzig chose for them. This was forgotten in the large Chopin group that concluded the program. H e r e everything was perfect, absolutely so; one almost felt the audience begin to sway in unison under the hypnotic command of rubato, accelerando, and the rest of Chopin's enormous musical vocabulary. This was a concert notably free of mere pyrotechnical display, a sort which has not often appeared in Holland.

Brazilian who seemingly was in love with Mag. When Holly becomes pregnant and involved in a drug scandal (in which she is innocent) Juan feels that things are getting too hot and using the excuse that he must think of his family, takes a Latin American powder. Holly loses the baby, jumps bail and flies to Rio, not, as one might think to get Juan back, but to leave her past behind her and start fresh; starting fresh in this case maening pretty much what she has been doing only in different country. • • • Holly's real name is Lulamae Barnes, from Tulip, Texas. She was married to Doc Golightly, a horse doctor, and one day in her walks down the road, she "just kept on." Holly is a "wild thing." She admits it. "That was Doc's mistake" she says. He was always lugging home wild things." The dream cannot be captured. • * » Capote's treatment of this theme is easy, delicate and soft. He does not preach; he merely states a fact. He offers no conclusion; no salvation; he only calls for and hopes f o r a

place for Holly, and by implication, for us, to belong. The significance of the title is not a minor thing. This is Holly's passion-some day to eat at Tiffany's, the showplace of her world. . The author intimates, in the end of the book that she has finally reached this plateau, but we don't really know; and if she has, what then? Truman Capote's mastery of characterization is quite evident in this novel. His people are s t r o n g l y drawn with a minimum of description. They come out through what the writer says. about them. They're an odd lot, but one is impressed by their essential humanity, good or bad. In sketching the character of Holly, Capote seems to have pulled out all the stops and presents us with someone who is not easily forgettable. The author's tone is poignant and sympathetic and we feel that even though he may not understand Holly Golightly, he is very much interested in her welfare. All in all, the book speaks, not loudly, but in an insiduous whisper.

Time for Action Last September, the women of the sophomore class were chaotically bid into the five sororities on Hope's campus. Upset, clamor, and dissatisfaction resulted in the five sororities as they received girls they did not want and in turn girls received sororities they did not want. Now we are entering a new semester in which decisions for the following year are being made. Already publication appoint— - tmm a E ments are being considered. But • A T E O P as to the fate of the five societ es an( ^/\/«IEXICC * * ^ w o ineffective S U W I E T I e S A.S.A.'s, no decision to their fate appears. In the fall, the administration appointed a committee to examine the problem. In December in an interview, one of the committee women said that no concrete decisions or tentative plans could be offered by the committee. In total, the committee didn't even do enough to warrant news coverage in the school paper. Now it is the middle of February. The committee is advancing in that it is meeting with the Pan-Hellenic Board and is considering this boards plan for action. But, still with the school year more than one-half over, this problem that is years old is not receiving the attention that it deserves. Facts speak for themself. Today the freshmen sorority Alpha Sigma Alpha is two distinct groups. Moreover, these groups are n0 p I E D I ^ ^ u n c t i o n i n g as a sorority iKIe but rather as an ineffective, | k | L I T f i l m poorly organized Friday night I H I l j n I VrfLUD club which most members find boring. The social needs of the freshman girls are no longer adequately met by A.S.A. because of the great increase in enrollment. And these needs never will be met by A.S.A. because enrollment will be growing by leaps for years to come. Some facts lose their effect because of time and misunderstanding. Forgotten is the chaos over the issuing of sorority bids when few girls and few sororities received their first choices. Forgotten is the fact that sororities are made up of individuals who are happy being with each other and want to work with each other. Rather, sororities today are primarily a club, not a social group, which in many cases has trouble holding interests of its members because the individual is unhappy in the organization. And today, sororities are not filling any purpose on campus. September is quickly approaching and a decision to the future of the women's social groups on campus must be reached before bids go out again in September. We can no longer ignore this problem or treat it lightly. Now is the time for action.

Freshman President Describes Alaskan Life and Experiences by Patricia Anne Pelon The richest and the most cultural Indians of the north American continent are the Thlinget Indians, one of these Indians resides here in Holland, and attends Hope College. I am speaking of none other than the freshman class president, James William "B i 11" Thomas. •

JIM SAYS ABOUT ALASKA THAT there is not much difference between it and the United States. The climate is about the same only he feels that we get more snow here and that it gets colder. (Jim also mentioned the fact that he often got the chills here . . .) The clothing is the same, the food more expensive, and the school system, Jim feels is much higher.

Jim feels that this act of leaving home so early is what makes the Alaskan youth more mature than we Americans of the continent. •


At the close of the first semester at Sheldon, Jim transferred to Holland High School. When asked his thoughts of the teenagers to whose land he was coming, Jim replied: "I pictured the teenagers as kids in jeans, sneering and fighting with each other." He says though, that when he arrived here, he found the people

most cordial and friendly and immediately changed his impression of us.

The remainder of his sophomore year and his entire junior year were "my years of inactivity. Those were the Dark Ages of my life." In Jim's senior year however, he was revived enough to take over the judgeship of Holland high and the presidency of the Choir and the French Club. He also sang the part of Ali in "Oklahoma". Here at Hope Jim is president of the freshman class and is an active member of Chapel Choir.

Is It Worth A Bargain? By Leander Wang In the light of Mr. Chandler's article, "Recognize Red China For Interest Of State," I would like to express some of my own opinions about this important issue even though I am not one of those "informed students" who are in the main stream of avantgarde thinking. Before getting into the issue, every student should be aware of the fact that political and international problems are not simple and unconnected.

The recognition of . . . Red China by the U.S. is no simple problem. It involves not just the U.S. and Red China, but also the entire Free World and Communist World. Every step taken by either side is going to affect both sides. How can the U.S. recognize Red China for her own interest, as Mr. Chandler put it?

Look at Russia which has diplomatic relations with the U.S. Is the U.S. gaining much from the "valuable listening posts" in Russia when everything in Russia is kept in secret? Can the U.S. "get a better idea of what's going on behind the bamboo curtain" when Red China is so much like Russia in this respect ? Just how much is the U.S. going to gain if she recognizes Red China? Is it going to solve all the problems in the Far East once and for all as most Americans imagine?

Doesn't the recognition mean that Red China can carry one step further in her aim of conquering the rest of Asia, and eventually the whole world? What can be worse than allowing the Reds to step in gradually?

k osan NO Amah

How much more can the Free World afford to lose after the losses in Europe, China, Korea, and Indo-China?

At this meeting Jim is going to show some slides he has taken of his state, and is going to give a fifteen minute oration entitled.

Jim would however, like to take up the course of law and to become a lawyer in Alaska. If possible, he would prefer to get into the field of politics and is aiming for a senatorship of Alaska.

The fact of the matter is, our conversation proved, this is not her first such experience. This veteran of foreign travel spent the summer of 1957 in Chile as a Holland Community Ambassador where she lived with a Spanish family. As well as Latin countries. Barb has visited abroad as a participant in the Vienna Summer School in Austria. THIS LINGUIST liked to keep her new acquaintances guessing her national background. She speaks fluent German and French as well as Spanish and English! With Spanish music pulsating in the background, we discussed her recent semester at Mexico City University. There she studied advanced Spanish composition, speech, and grammar in competition with students whose native language was Spanish. Practice teaching was included in the curriculum and placed her in a private school where the enrollment included both Mexican and American children. Tentatively Barb's plans for next fall include either graduate work or the launching of a teaching career. This coming summer she would like to visit friends in Mexico. Expressing the title of one of her books, Barb can say with its author, My Heart Lies South.

That "it is absurd to think that by supporting Chiang we arc thereby supporting freedom in Southeast Asia." In my opinion, this conclusion reveals a lack of careful observation. Isn't the Republic of China considered as part of the Free World? Isn't she the symbol of fighting against the invasion of Communists? Doesn't the support of the U.S. give confidence and hope to all non-Communist countries? By supporting this symbol the American government can, at least, show the non-Communist countries that the U.S. is still defending freedom and justice. Others think that by making the Republic of China a neutral country, to make possible the recognition of Red China, can solve the problem too. This sounds like a very good solution. But, aren't we failing to realise the world-revolution attitude of the Reds? Do you think the Reds would abandon their plan of conquering the world ? Isn't India a well-known neutral country? Why was it that India should lose 40,000 square miles of land that used to belong to India and is now under Communist control? Didn't the Reds take it by military force?

Lefs look at Formosa . . . From the strategical point of view, I like what Mr. Chandler said in his article. He said, "For considerations of strategy, we seem to have little choice but to back up any regime on Formosa which will be friendly toward the U.S." This explains very well why I said that the Free World can afford to lose no more to the Reds.

And now, let us look at Red China herself. Let us not push ourselves too f a r back into the ten-year history of Red China but rather limit ourselves to just a few important events that happened in 1959. These events speak for themselves against the recognition of Red China: / mentioned India already. We saw that India lost 40,000 square miles of land, ten people were killed, and ten were taken POW during last Autum.

This shows their aim of conquering the world. The commune system which they enforced throughout China not only broke up families but also caused the economic instability. People suffered from starvation because they produced only about 50% of their original planned figure in crops. People were treated no better than animals. Many died because of hunger and over-working. Should the U.S. recognize a country like that? During last spring, there was a great anti-Communist revolution in Tibet. The Reds used military force to stop the revolution. The result was that about 65,000 Tibetans were estimated to be killed and the God-king fortunately escaped from Tibet into India. In conclusion, I would like to say that the recognition of Red China would mean the recognition of every action she takes, either good or bad. As f a r as interests are concerned, I would say that there would be no gains but losses f o r the U.S. The recognition would not solve but complicate the worlds problems. Let us not think of self-interests but rather righteousness and justice. Let us protect the fundamental right of man which is freedom.

Saturday night at the Holland Civic Center, the Flying Dutchmen yeilded to a last quarter push by a Central State of Ohio team for the second time this season, in another thrilling ball game. The score remained relatively balanced in the first part of the game, and was 37-35 in favor of Hope at the half. In the third quarter, the Dutchmen began to roll up a significant lead, and had a comfortable fifteen point margin at the beginning of the final quarter. At that time, the boys from Central, not-so-conservatively a t t i r e d in orange shorts and yellow jerseys with red lettering, demonstrated t h a t t h e y were also dazzling ballhandlers, and gradually cut down the lead. A basket by Turner Russell, Central's high scorer for the evening, put them in front 82 to 81. This also proved to be the final score of the ball game, despite a basket by Ray Ritsema, which was nullified because the timer had not started the clock. The Central State team was one of the most colorful to appear at the Civic Center this season, not only by virtue of their uniforms, but because of their dexterity in rebounding and ball handling, and the speed and dribbling of S'Q" Turner Russell. The Hope team was bothered by the towering forwards, and a general difficulty in converting some of its easier scoring opportunities. HOPE FG FT P F TP Ritsema 14 5 1 33 W.

In both games, the outcome was in doubt until the last seconds, and a spectacular comeback drive decided the issue, but the home team emerged victorious in only the Calvin game. From the standpoint of Dutch fans, the Calvin game was the From the standpoint of Dutch fans, the Calvin game was the f a r more crucial of the two, not only because a victory would give the team an unblemished M.I.A.A. record of eight wins without a defeat and a clear field in the race for the league championship, but because of the intense rivalry beby Garry Schadwald tween the two schools.

At night the group had another party where all types of card games were to be found, and for those who wanted more exercise, dancing was provided. Next day, a f t e r a good lunch and one more time on the slope, the group packed the cars and with a sigh of regret said goodby to Lake Valley and wearily came back for Hope and a new semester.
