Alcor Tea To Honor Dean's List Students Students Hear Lukas Voss

Hope Wins Top Honors In State Contest

On Friday, J a n u a r y 31, students, James Kranendonk, Terril Zylman and Eugene Boelte, accompanied by Miss Jantina Holleman and Mr. Roger Rietberg of the Music Facuty, were guests of the St. Cecilia Club in Grand Rapids. Mr. Lukas Voss, a contemporary American composer, born in Brooklyn and now teaching at the University of California, gave a demonstration lecture, entitled Confessions from My Musical Life. Mr. Voss, whose most recent composition. Song of Songs, was performed by the New York Philharmonic only a week ago, traced his development as a composer. The first great influence on him as a musician was the work of J. S. Bach. He had been especially, impressed by the St. Matthew Passion. Next as an influence was the one operatic style of Mozart, which is manifest in all of his compositions, operatic and symphonic alike. Mr. Voss then mentioned Beethoven, especially the Eroica Symphony, which illustrates very well a feeling of inevitability and of surprise; a paradoxal combination. Among 20th century composers, Mr. Voss profited f r o m Hindemith, with whom he studied; Aaron Copland, whose use of folk idioms is a trademark, and Stravinsky, whose completely new sonorities (called by Mr. Voss "frozen" sounds) was a new experiment. Certain types of modern music, among them the atonal compositions of Schoenberg and Webern, seemed to Mr. Voss to be inexpressive. He described them as "lonely peverty", and said t h a t in t h a t sense they might be descriptive of our age. If the typical definition of a melody is t h a t it is a grouping of notes to form some kind of musical idea, then it would seem that such music shows a deliberate reversal of such a definition. In regard to the education of an artist, Mr. Voss stated t h a t it first of all requires a solid knowledge of what has been done previously. One loves a composition of another artist and then one tries to imitate it. He vehemently disapproves of the school of education which believes in letting children "express themselves" before they have seen or heard good models.

Di:k Brockmier, General M a n a g e r of Radio Station WTAS, explains the functions of the station's new equipment to an interested student.

W.TA,S. - - - Dorm Room to Studio Hope's own radio station, WTAS, is a result of the theory t h a t improvement and growth are a result of the right people taking advantage of the right time and conditions. Eventually the station hopes to render as vital a service to the college as do the Anchor and Milestone. From its beginning in a Kollen Hall room with only a tape recorder and a r a t h e r weak transmitter, WTAS has moved into a modern studio and now broadcasts its programs to the whole campus. There are many men at Hope interested in the work of WTAS. Much credit is due the initiators of the idea of a college radio station. Dick Brockmeier and Jack Hellriegel have exhibited the vital interest and real ability necessary to get such a project underway and to sustain it. Presently Dick is the General Manager, Jack is the Program Director and Bob Van Etten is in charge of technical direction. The staff is now concentrating on the completion of the electrical

works of the WTAS studio. Most of the station equipment is being built by the staff itself so as much equipment as possible can be provided f o r from the budget alloted WTAS by the administration. This work in the studio gives many men general experience with the station and promotes the development of an efficient staff. In addition to its present prog r a m s of music of all kinds, WTAS plans to make its facilities available to various college groups and faculty members. The station will soon be able to broadcast from anywhere on campus, so programs will be able to originate f r o m such places as the Chapel or M u s i c Building. WTAS hopes to add to its library of college music events each year. The Messiah, Nykerk Cup Contest, and All College Sing will be recorded. Special programs are to be offered and college announcements given regularly. WTAS's growth has been rapid and commendable. The student body can look forward to worthwhile listening from 610 on the dial.

PROGRESSIVE EDUCATION: an impressive term, isn't i t ? If asked to give a definition of it, I would say it is an easy way for children to rule their parents and teachers. Let us visit an average "progressive" home. When one enters, he notices the markings on the walls. Little Johnny is not slapped when he paints on the wallpaper. Why, he may become another Degas or Picasso, and to stunt his artistic talents would be disastrous! The wallpaper manufacturers are delighted with this outlook, of course, but the parents will shortly discover that Johnny's talents might actually be improved by helping hand—in the right spot.

An Evaluation During Religious Emphasis Week 1958 new concepts were considered. Broader horizons were gazed upon. Satisfactory and unsatisfactory opinions were expressed concerning every facet of the week's activities. We have desired the week to be one of challenge; a week which offered opportunity f o r re-evaluation of and growth in Christian living. If it has been this for some we are thankful. If f o r others new vistas have not been opened we ask that every possible reason for such an outcome be critically considered. It is difficult to evaluate the effects of such a period of religious introspection since it has been a very recent occurence. The effects are and will be many and varied; good and bad, but immediate evaluation is unable to predict any far-reaching consequences which may be realized. What is possible and necessary is the concerted effort of each individual to evaluate Religious Emphasis Week in the light of personal situation and need. What insights were acquired? What was lacking? What course should be pursued in my subsequent relationship with God and m e n ? These questions require consideration. At a recent class session in Van Raalte Hall the professor closed a rigorous hour of lecturing by saying, "I don't care if you don't understand everything, as long as you grow." This is our continued sentiment f o r all who, during the course of Religious Emphasis Week, have again been confronted with the paradoxes and incongruities as well as the profound significance of the Christian life. —Hope Brahs —Albert Fassler

classroom. Inside are a group of pupils in various forms of activity, "expressing their personalities." This will give their poor, f r u s t r a t ed teacher a clue to Johnny's personality. If he plays with blocks, he will be an architect; if he carves the desk, he will become a fine sculptor; if he plays with one of the doll houses, he will make someone a good wife someday! Teacher had a setback today, which accounts f o r the f e a r f u l , bewildered look in her eye. It seems that one of her pupils approached her this morning, with his trusty little jack-knife in hand, and attempted to slice her! Naturally, they disarmed this poor child and took him to a psychologist, who solved the problem. The psychologist instructed the teacher to give the child a piece of soft pine wood and let him whittle to his heart's content. This will not ony curb his violent nature, but at the same time f u r t h e r his creative genius. In grandfather's day, and even in my day, I have no doubt that a pine stick would be used. However, it would not be s o f t pine, and it would be used quite differently. Back to our teacher! A f t e r that dreadful experience, she still must struggle on with her policy of self-expression for children. One littel boy makes it quite difficult f o r her. He has just raised his chubby hand and asked, "Teacher, is today the day we have to do what we want to d o ? " This, of course, set the status of progressive education back many years. He was immediately analyzed by several top child psychologists who found, much to their amazement, t h a t he was completely normal! No doubt this trend in education will be revised before too long, discover that it is profitable to Parents and teachers alike will mold children in their early years, when they are still s o f t and pliable and can benefit f r o m good discipline.

Lubbers Combine Classics Club to Business with Meet Publicly Pleasure in Florida For Last Time In an attempt to combine pleasure with business. Dr. and Mrs. Lubbers left December 27 with Miami Beach, Florida and the meetings of the Association of American Colleges as their destination. Before arriving at the meeting which was hid J a n u a r y 6-10, they first stopped off at Rochester, New York City, and Washington, D.C. The meetings of the Association of American Colleges were of primary importance this year because of the recent crucial happenings in higher education. Two of the most important discussions being on the subjects of increased training of scientists and increased financial aid from the government. However, reported Dr. Lubbers, the significance of this conference lies in the fact t h a t the colleges went on record as wishing to keep themselves independent of government support and as supporting and encouraging all of education as important, not just the scientific pursuits. Following the conference, the Lubbers travelled across the state to St. Petersburg where they enjoyed a brief but pleasant vacation. While in Florida, they visited a few of the new Reformed Churches growing in t h a t area. Wherever the went — whether in New York, Florida, or Washington—they were greeted by Hope graduates. Despite the bad weather which they encountered, they both had a pleasant and safe journey.

Monday night, February 17, the Kletz will be the scene of a public meeting of the Classics Club. The meeting, which will begin a t 8:15, will feature the Rev. J. Coert Rylaarsdam, Ph. D., Associate Professor of Theology a t the Uuniversity of Chicago. Rev. Rylaarsdam has done considerable work in classical languages and culture. This will be the last public meeting of the Classics Club, composed of all interested Greek and Latin students, because a t long last the club is going national. The efforts of two-and-a-half years by the advisor, Prof. Edward Wolters, and student leaders of the club, will be rewarded this spring when the Classics Club will become the Gamma Rho Chapter of the national fraternity, E t a Sigma Phi. Membership into the f r a t e r n i t y is open to all interested students who maintain a " B " average in college Greek or Latin work. The club was accepted by the Grand Executive Council and later confirmed a t the National Convention of the f r a t e r n i t y held last April. Delegates f r o m the Northwestern University of Chicago chapter will preside over the establishing of the local chapter in March or April.

Anna Frankly . . . Diary of a Co-ed Sunday: Dear Diary, I've been hearing a lot about this Dutch Treat Week thing, you know. Well, today I found out what it is. That senior was crazy; we don't have to wear wooden shoes and Dutch caps. The girls have to ask out the boys; now isn't t h a t crazy. Oh, and the girls have to pay f o r it too. Golly, there are so many good looking boys on campus, I don't know who to ask. Monday: Dear Diary, Golly, the boys around here are modest. I asked three different guys to go to coffee with me and they all told me t h a t they would probably only bore me and I should save my money. I guess Dutch Treat Week brings out the best in them. Tuesday: Dear Diary, You remember t h a t I put my name in the Bachelor Bank? Well, I won something! I've got a date with one of those beautiful males! We have a f r e e pass to the P a r k to see Eighteen and Anxious!

Wednesday: Dear Diary, Tonight I took George to the Calvin game. For someone so goodlooking, he's awfully intelligent. Really, I mean it! He kept telling me how the game should have been played. If someone is t h a t smart I really think he should be made an advisor to the coach or something. Really, don't you think so? Thursday: Dear Diary, I took Bob to coffee today. Such a slob! He slurps, and he ate two doughnuts and said about three words the whole time we were in the Kletz, and every one of them was with his mouth full. Oh! I hope he never asks me for a date! I would have the most terrible time. And when he was done gorging himself he said something t h a t sounded like "see ya." Not if I see him first he won't. He's out of it!

by Gabrielle Pinter Dating in Hungary is just as important a question, as it is in the United States. The difference is that we never can ask a boy. We have never thought about it. I think it is a very nice idea, but from European eyes it looks so strange. In the Hungarian capital, we always find traffic on the streets, especially on Saturday and Sunday. The young people usually meet on the street. There is a big "rendezvous" place in Budapest, right before the National Theatre. From four o'clock to late night, there is always somebody (the boy) who is waiting. The girl should be late because it is elegant that way. Many times it happens that these boys who wait at the "rendez-vous" would not want another boy to know t h a t he is waiting for a girl. Maybe she is late ten minutes, so everybody acts like they have nothing to do, and are jus t hanging around.

Ben Vandenbos' bucket and a pair of charity tosses by Don Boyink provided the margin of victory. Coach Gord Brewer's team, vastly improved over their earlier season outings, led most of the way, leading by eighteen at halftime. But the Beverage outcourt shooting was consistently good and the recreation team tied it up with a basket in the last two seconds to necessitate the overtime. Leading the Hope scorers was Bill Vanderbilt, who clicked f o r 24 points. Boyink added 17, Doug Japinga 14, and Bob Hilbelink 11.
