HOPE VICTOR IN SENSATIONAL GAME MICHIGAN CITY "Y" NOSED OUT IN OVERTIME TILT Final Score 31—30 —o— Displaying a wonderful staying power, the Orange and Blue quintet nosed out the Michigan City "Y" five last Friday night 31—30. The game was tied, 25 all, at the end of the regular forty minutes, and when the bell rang for the first overtime period, the score-board registered a 27—27 knot. Both teams were showing the effects of the gruelling tilt, but the game was to go on for five 1 more minutes. "Chief" Ottipoby put Hope in the lead and W. Cook and Healy chalked up three points between them. Then, as he had already done .twice before during the fierce struggle, Riemersma caged the ball with a pretty mid-court shot, and the game was won for the collegians. Neither team was adept a t working the ball under the basket, and Hope lost .golden opportunities to win the game via the foul route. Out of fifteen chances only five were cashed in on. This is the way it all happened: Weigman opened for the visitors with a long shot. Weinrick scored in the same manner and then Riemersma caged one of his eight baskets. Irving caged his only field goal of the game at this point, and IJealy and *his mate. Precious, rolled in two field goals for the "Y." Yonkman • slipped one through the loop, and W. Cook threw in a field goal. Irving snared three points via the foul route, followed by a free throw from W. Cook. Weinrick, Riemersma and Weigman caged goals as the half ended with Hope trailing 17—11. Hope came back strong in the early minutes of the second half. Yonkman caged two free throws, Weinrick followed with one of the same variety. Ottipoby parted the meshes twice from the field. Healy and Riemersma had a scoring battle, in which each alternated in scoring two field goals apiece. Weinrick threw the sphere through the loop from the field, and Precious cashed in on a free throw. Riemersma saved the game f o r his five at this point with two neat court shots, and tied the game at 25 all. In the first overtime period Radermaker quickly followed the ball under the basket and tossed it through lor a counter. Riemersma with only a few seconds left to play in, again kept his quintet in the running with a goal which knotted the score at 27 for both fives. In the next overtime period the "Y" quintet scored three points, while Schouten's team through "Chief" Ottipoby and "Beans" Riemersma put Hope ahead by scoring four points and taking the tilt with the small but safe margin of one point. Van Lente was the tower of defense on the Orange and Blue five, while Riemersma, his running mate, bore the brunt of the offense. Ottipoby also put up a good fight for the collegians. Healy and W. Cook showed wares better than their r team-mates, and hence were the stellar performers for the Y. M. C. A. Line-up and Summary: Hope Mich. City. Irving R. F. Precious Ottipoby L. F.

LAKEV1EW LOSES GAME TO SECONDS RESERVES PLAY GREAT BALL IN 29—20 WIN The first squad of tosieftf was not the only quintet representing the Orange and Blue that emerged victorious after a hard battle last Friday nig'ht. The Reserves had scheduled the Lakeview Independents for a pair of games, and although they took the short end of a score in the first tilt early in January, they retaliated Friday nig'ht and copped the gruelling tilt by a 29—20 score. Hope led throughout the first half, doing things pretty much her own way, and at half time the score chalked up was 16—ft in favor of the scrubs. It looked as though the reserves would have easy picking for the remainder of the games, but early in the second half Lakeview came back with a vengeance and knotted the score 18—all. Luskin dropped in a free throw and Lakeview was leading. C. Lubbers came across with a field goal, and Essebaggefs tossed in a free throw, and rapidly caging two field goals he placcd his squad ahead with a comfortable lead. Luskin again cashed in for a free throw, but when Essebaggers tossed in two more free throws, the doubtful contest ended with Lakeview trailing 29—20.

FORENSIC SEASON ABOUT TO OPEN WILL STAGE THREE DEBATES; M. O. L. CONTEST ON MARCH 7 Delegates Going to National Convention Hands off! The forensic teams are in action. Hope met M. A. C. in the first debate of the season Tuesday evening. An account of this debate will follow next week. Friday evening the state league debates begin. Albion College will send its negative team here and our's will go to Kalamazoo College. The men who debate are: affirmative, William Tuttle, "Jack" Ver Meulen, and Gerrit Wessilink, Captain; the negative, Julius Van Eenam, Richard Van Farowe, and Oliver Veneklaasen, Captain. All these men except, Tuttle and Veneklaasen have debated on Hope's varsity before. They were selected early in December and have been working hard ever since. Let's get back of them Friday evening, Feb. 15. The M. O. L. takes place at Hope College March 7. Plans are being worked out to make this a big event. Our orator of last year, Simon Heemstra, already manager of debating and treasurer of the State Leagues, was elected by the Pi Kappa Delta as general manager of the contest. Mr. Louis Reeverts, manager of oratory, will be his assistant. John Dethmers and Agnes Buikema, our orators, have already commenced training under Dr. J. B. Nykerk. They have both written excellent orations and Dr. Nykerk is very optimistic about the future. The school should be back of our orators 100%. We can win again, if we will. A new item is being written into the rolls of the Pi Kappa Delta chapter when it decided to send delegates to the National Convention to take place at Peoria, 111., April 1, 2, and 3. The delegation chosen is composed of Nelle Kole, Simon • Heemstra, and Harvey De Weerd. The latter will participate in the national extempore contest and the two former, our orators in the state contest last year, will enter the Ladies' and Men's Oratorical contest. If these delegates are successful in any one of the contests they will return with "a silver cup for the college. We have many cups for achievment in athletics but only one or two in forensics. '"We want a cup this year" is the motto everyone should adopt in supporting these delegates.

EMERSONIANS HOLD MID-WINTER STAG FORGET TROUBLES OF EXAMS AS THEY FEAST "Emerson Men" forgot the new subjects, the recent "final" mortalities, and even the co-eds, last Wednesday night, February 6th, when they gathered with glorious abandon as stag banqueteers in the basement of First Church. This, their fifth annual stag was one of unique and uncommon interest. The menu was athletic in that each dish was referred to in "sports lingo". Eats were followed by a period of smoking during which many freshmen "learned the ropes." There is teamwork and a team, a coach and a center, there are forwards,, guards, and subs, in every progressive society. To these, toasts, followed by talks, were proposed. Music was furnished by the freshmen, and featured a saxaphone solo by Donald Schilleman.

THE INQUISITIVE REPORTER Every Week He Asks Four PersonsPicked atRandom^A Question By A. J» Ungftrtma

THE QUESTION; How can chapel attendance be improved ? THE ANSWERS: • Mrs. Winifred H. Durfee. Dep't. of French.—Arouse in the weak student a sufficient sense of moral responsibility to keep him from cutting classes copying problems, exercises and note-books, and "borrowing" themes and short stories. He will then appreciate the privilege and the necessity of attending chapel every day. How to do this? Oh, that is another question. Prof. Irwin Lubbers, Dep't of English.—1. Be there yourself. The seats that are vacant are always the seats of individuals. 2. Speak to the other fellow. Perhaps he has never had the opportunity of learning the true value of such exercises and is perfectly honest in the protest which his absence indicates. 3. Recognize the whole matter as being one of class as well as individual honor. In which class section do you see most vacant seats? (Oontinaed on Page 2)

CLOSE GUARDING OF BOTH TEAMS PROVES FEATURE Locals off-form. Hope's winning streak was broken Friday night when the Kazoo Normal team battled its way to a 20—14 victory. The game was f a s t and rough throughout and the strong defense presented by both teams took away the usual thrills and made the contest less interesting from a spectator's standpoint. Kazoo has a splendid team and they look like the best bet for state championship honors, but they are not as fast as the Indianapolis "Y" which was defeated by Hope earlier in the season. Kazoo jumped into the lead after the contest had progressed about 3 minutes. R. Miller opened the scoring with a field goal. Hope then started scoring and before another two minutes had elapsed they had a 4 point margin. Irving made all six points, 4 from the foul line and a field goal from a difficult position. Kazoo quickly overcame this lead when 2 fouls by Miller and a ringer by Van Wingin knotted the count 6 all. Normal then proceeded to take a commanding lead. Van Wingin and O. Johnson sank baskets and the latter added 4 more points when Hope fouled. Irving brought Hope's total to 8 and the half ended, the locals trailing 14—8. Kazoo seemed content with fl 6 point lead and they played almoet entirely a defensive game in t h e second period. Irving gave Hope new courage with a two point gain bat Van Wingin covered it with a similar addition f o r Normal. Up to this time Capt. Irving had contribated all of his teams points, but at this junctare Ottipoby came thru with a mid-court shot. Miller' maintained his team's lead with 3 points from fouls. After Ottipoby had located the basket again from the center of the ffcor. Miller added another point awarded because Hope had taken 4 times out. Final score: 20—14. O. Johnson stood out brightest f o r Normal while Capt. Irving was the main cog in Hope's machine. Line-up and summary:

"LOVEUNFEIGNED - IS I W, SDBJECT MEETING IS LED BY WINIFRED ZWEMER Many Girls Attend Last Thursday afternoon, the girls gathered in the chapel f o r the regular Y. W. meeting. The songs that were sung, the scripture passages taken from I Cor. 13, the love chapter, and from Luke 11, the story of the Good Samaritan, the prayers and the duet, "O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go," were all in keeping with the topic. Winifred Zwemer told about love as something almost indefinable—a great Law, Power or Force. "God is Love" comes nearer than anything else to being a definition of love. To know what real love is and to experience it we must know God. Examples of true love can be found in literature and in every day life. Our love must not be a feigned love as that found in the first scene of "The Fool", but a real and unfeigned love that makes us willing to sacrifice for those we love. This love must be practiced here on the campus and then when we leave College and take up our life work. - F . B.

N N. B. The editorial column is the heart of the newspaper. The editorial policy of a paper determines its influence for good or evil—in either case a tremendous influence. The Chicago Tribune in its editorial comment seems to have lined itself up with the opposition in the m a t t e r of Prohibition and enforcement of the law. In such matters a large newspaper has a large sphere of influence for a great many people are misled by the false logic of the articles. To counteract these and similar influences against the forces of law and order the Association Union of the college is working in conjunction with the Intercollegiate Prohibition Association to recreate among college students the norqial attitude toward this great national problem. For this reason the Association Union has purchased and framed certain posters which will undoubtedly give you a better idea of the vast importance of the right attitude in a m a t t e r of this kind, and the quotations from the great national leaders will furnish you with an abundance of authoritative material on all phases of the question. We take this opportunity to call your attention to these posters hoping t h a t they may be a strong influence f o r good in the college. When men like Harding, Roosevelt, T a f t , and Coolidge consider the enforcement of law to be a paramount issue in national affairs their opinion will naturally carry more weight than t h a t of a Tribune editor whose policy is undoubtedly controlled by local interests rather than national welfare. Read the posters as they are brought to your attention.. A new one will be posted every few days. Think over the sentiment which they express and you will find t h a t they correspond very accurately with your deepest convictions.




Americans are splendidly independent. No other people on the face of the earth is so individually f r e e and careless of fetters. Four centuries of fairly equal opportunity with only ambition as a credential for success has created a veritable instinct of self-reliance. Now the audacious undertakings of our engineers astonish the world; the initiative of our soldiers turns the tide of w a r ; the enterprise of our working men makes us the richest nation on the earth. But no pendulum was ever started that did not swing past the median. So this glorious faith in ourselves has brot with it at times conceit. This carelessness of non-essentials has resulted often in mockery of the sublime. The capableness of the younger generation is frequently equaled by their impudence. Their parents scoff at law as well as at social caste. Students are by no means exempt. One publicly insults a professor's dignity, one sneers at an elder's eccentricities; a girl snickers while the Bible is read, a fellow whispers during prayer. We parodize poetic masterpieces, glibly we criticize genius, we play with the rights that have cost the blood and sweat of thousands. Let us not condemn too harshly. We know t h a t a feeling of equality and good fellowship is often responsible for apparent lack of respect to professors. That irreverence results from a revulsion of feeling toward puritanical stiltedness. That a determination to be unswayed by previous standards makes us careless of them But we must admit our extreme conceit. When an eightyear-old defies its parent, how it fills us with w r a t h ! What a revulsion of feeling we experience when a grade-scholar contradicts his teacher. Imagine, then, how our conceited smugness must look to our intellectual superiors. Presuming a paternalism toward our seniors! Brazenly insulting the God of a Universe! Insolently toying with the standards of the world! With such a precedent what will the next generation be?

Richard P. Mallery, 26.—One of the best ways in which to improve chapel attendance is to improve chapel exercises and conditions. I have good reason to believe that one of the main reasons why our chapel is not attended regularly is because our chapel exercises are not made worth while as a rule. It is very seldom that we receive a real worthy address from the platform. Instead, the chapel period is taken up with brief devotions or a great deal of time is taken up in worthless discussion. What we need, as students, is a good address each morning in connection with chapel exercises. A five minute talk could be given either by faculty members or others, on some of the worth while things of life. It would give us a stimulus for thought during the day. o— Harry Grailt, Prep. '24.—Attendance in.Prep chapel is fairly good. Better attendance and greater interest however could be obtained by having less similarity and more variety in the method of conducting the meeting. We would suggest that a larger representation of the faculty members besides a few outside speakers should lead the meeting. More music in any form would also be greatly enjoyed, even if it were only some good class^al selection played on the phonogteph. ATTENTION, ORATORS! • • Movt? and more do we need in these days, men and women who can express themselves in such a manner that they cannot be misunderstood. The ancients understood that it was a prime essential to be able to present an argument logically and connectedly; yet having about it also the touch of beauty and symmetry. Therefore Demosthenes and Cicero spent so much time studying the art of rhetoric, logic, and expression. Fellow-Hopeites, do you believe that to a very great extent—probably much more so than you dare to think—your success in life will depend upon your ability adequately to express yourself? There are many people who are capable intellectually, of doing almost anything—but sad to say, only in their own field and department. As soon as they attempt, through speech or writing, to pass on to others what they have acquired as scholars in their own realm of thought, they utterly fail. Why? Because they have not learned how to write or speak. If you are going to "put anything across" in the line of oratory, you must know how to write, and after you have written, you must know how to present it in clear speech. Now, here is your golden opportunity, to learn how to write and speak. Spring is coming, with its contests in oratory and debating. Soon nature will be calling us out-of-doors. Now we can work on an oration or declamation—this spring we possibly won't feel like it . This notice comes plenty early, but not too early. If you want to win in a contest, get busy right away and pick a subject—think about it, read on it, talk to your friends about it, think some more, then write, and then—orate. * The first contest will be a declamation contest for the . "C" and "D" classes in the preparatory school. In this contest, each of the two above

mentioned classes may enter four contestants, either men or women. It will be held on the 11 of April. Preps, get busy and pick your declamations! The second contest will be held on the 18th of April. This contest will be the preparatory Boys' and Girls' Oratorical contest, in which contest the "A" and "B" classes may each enter two men and two women. The college women's oratorical contest will be the third contest. All women in the first three classes of the college department are eligible. The Junior class may enter three women; the Sophomore and Freshman classes two women each. This contest will be held on May 2nd. We ought to have an elimination contest in each class for the women. Co-eds, get busy. The last contest of the spring, in Oratory, is the Raven Contest. Last year there were about 23 men who tried out in this contest. Each class had to have an elimination, since only seven may enter the final Raven Contest. The Juniors may enter three men, and the Sophomore and Freshman classes each two men. This contest will be held on the 29th of May. Now it may seem that these contests are so f a r off that it is not as yet time to prepare, or even to think about it. But the sooner you have your oration written, or your declamation learned, the more time you ran spend upon practicing delivery of it. Long reflection also makes what you have to say more entirely your own. Any further information desired about any of these contests, may be had from the writer of this article. —L. De Moor, Sec'y.

The Best Business Career


S what every ambitious senior is thinking about at the present time. Life insurance is one of the best, one of the most desirable, and one of the most satisfactory as a permanent calling. In assets and volume of business, life insurance is one of the three leading businesses of this country, yet the field is comparatively underdeveloped. Only 7 per cent of the economic value of human life in the United States is covered by insurance.This gives an idea of the big field still to be worked, especially business insurance forfirmsand corporations. As to remuneration: Reports of college graduates who have entered business indicate that life insurance is at the very top as a source of income. Now is the time for you to consider what you are going to do after graduation.

• I speak as one who knows; for I do know whereof I speak. There are some pleasures and some annoyances peculiar to the position of a youngest child. For one who delights in being different, there can be claimed the distinction of being the child of youngest age in the family. Perhaps this might be a comfort to som^ of distorted senses of values, but I can hardly expand my chest and tap it in a satisfied manner and exclaim, "I am the youngest child! None other of our family can dispute it with me. It is true t h a t my oldest brother is Alpha, but it is equally true that I am Omega. And certainly /Alpha and Omega are the only ones really worth mentioning. Who would care to be an inconsequential Lambda or Theta?" Besides t h a t first possible pleasure, which I should not have mentioned except that there are those no doubt who value it more highly than I do, there is the decided advantage t h a t the youngest child has in his very youth itself. He can think of himself and know for his own satisfaction t h a t he has the chan ;e in his favor of outliving his older brothers and sisters. Also, if he takes out an insurance policy at the same time the other members of the family do, he will not have to pay such high premiums for t h a t protection, as the other members of the family. There is also the advantage of the advice and counsel of the older brothers and sisters. This advice is always f r e e and plentiful and sometimes valuable. Oftentimes it need not even be solicited. Such is the generous nature of older brothers and sisters. As to the older sisters, I am slightly ; overstepping my bounds of f a c t based on personal experience in the first person. I have only older brothers, and as a result, the nature of this great plenty of advice is of 'necessity limited. I have often wished that I had had a sister. The consequent broadening of the field of information might prove of great value in affairs witb women. I can vouch f o r the efficacy of the position of youngest son as a temperer and a developer of fortitude. About the most trying times of my youth were the occasions wlien mother would exhibit me to the company or visitors as the "Baby." Now t h a t sort of thing may be borne without a grimace until a fellow reaches the age of eleven or twelve years. Then it occasions a tinge of red in the ears and a spark of rebellion in the heart. A f t e r this spark of rebellion is quenched, and it is sooner or later, the subject is better able to bear slight trials without a ruffling of temper. This ability is an asset of great value, for life is much more pleasant if it is ' only touched by real troubles few in number than if it is always being plagued by petty irregularities. It seems that every set of parents have a supply of "care" and "pains" to be taken with the children. The first child to arrive is the object of much painstaking. He is held down, so to speak, and is not allowed to do much that is liable in any way to endanger his life or health. As each succeeding child comes along, he is the recipient of a little less of this attention, and when the last child is of age to enjoy a little fling with life in the high and low places, he is not denied.
