Four Days Many Memories By Carolyn Kleiber

Dr. Johnson believes that cultural tours of music and art are in order because art endures. The United States has been slow to realize this fact, he feels, and it took Iceland's sympathy for the Soviet Union to induce the United States to initiate a program of cultural exchange.

Committee Establishes $2,000 Goal To Build Institute's Library By Fritz Kruithof

With enthusiasm radiating strongly for the up and coming "Operation Annville, ,, which will be held f r o m February 23 through 28, eleven Hope College students and their chaperone Mrs. Jeanette Boeskool returned to Holland last weak a f t e r spending two action packed days in Annville, Jackson County, Kentucky. "Operation Annville," the pet project of the Y groups, had begun. The purpose of this southern sojourn was to allow these students to acquaint themselves more fully with the entirely inadequate library facilities at Annville Institute, and to introduce better relations beHope Admitted To tween Hope College and this fully Educational Association Hope College has been admitted accredited Kentucky high school.

Twelve Make Trip Students making the trip were seniors Isla Van Eenenaam, Chuck Hesselink, and Larry Ter Molen; juniors Elaine Dykhuizen, Ethelanne Swets, and Don Gallo; sophomores Carolyn Kleiber, Emily Hradec, Jim Combs, and Fritz Kruithof; and freshman Dave Simala. Experiencing 70 degree temperatures and the even w a r m e r hospitality of their "blue g r a s s " hosts, the Hope crew did everything from attending church in a 30' by 30' bare-floored one-room building, to losing billfolds in bouncing jeeps, to challenging the Annville Institute basketball team to a big Monday evening game.

"Annville Bulldogs crush the Hope basketball team, 71-39!" This imaginary headline might well appear in the paper of the school supported by the Reformed Church in Annville, Kentucky.

CHRISTIANITY It is quite evident on our campus today that this question of Christianity is not only of great concern but also of immense importance. How often are people, not only here but in all walks of life, trying to give a new interpretation to the basic meaning and content of the Christian religion. We try to reinterpret Christianity in terms of our own experience and our own philosophy. Others come to the point where they even refuse to discuss this question. They say t h a t there are so many branches of Christianity, so many sects, so many different individual interpretations of the Christian religion t h a t it is impossible to arrive a t a normative definition of the Christian faith. These persons argue that it would take at least a book, and preferably two or even three volumes, to answer the question " W h a t is Christianity?" Yet, is this t r u e ? Is Christianity so complex? Or is Christianity and the Gospel concise, simple, and straightforward ? To me, the latter is true, for Christianity is Christ. Its origin is not in philosophy but in history.. That Christ lived, and died, and on the- third day He rose again are factual, historical events. True, there are many myths and legends which compare closely to the Holy Scriptures; but the Scriptures are not inventions of man to explain away the f e a r f u l unknown. They are history—the tracing of God's mighty acts f o r the salvation of man f r o m Adam through Christ. Christianity is founded not on ideas but on a Person, Jesus Christ. Second, these facts are revealed to us. They were not invented; they did not arise in reason or speculation. Christianity does not have its origin in the mind of man

but in the mind of God. The essence of the Christian message is^ communicated to man by God Himself. This is what the word revelation means. It is only by revelation t h a t we realize how sinful we are. And only by revelation do we know our source of forgiveness in the f a c t that Christ died for our sins. Third, Christianity is a personal religion. Jesus Christ came into this world to save individuals—not to save all mankind. The Gospel speaks to us individually, calling us to receive God's g r e a t and free g i f t of salvation. To repeat, Christianity is not a philosophy of life nor merely a means of fulfilling our innate need f o r relatedness to our fellow men and to God. And neither is it merely a way to make life meaningful nor just a way to live successfully in modern society. Christianity is a personal religion where sinful persons conf r o n t a personal God and meet a personal Saviour, Jesus Christ. Fourth, Christianity is an authoritative religion. Its message can never be a subject of mere academic debate. It deals with our ultimate and eternal destiny. It is, in the words of Henry James, "a living, forced, and momentous decision." It is so vital that we must choose — we must make a decision. There is no way out; it is unavoidable. Yet, it commands not only our decision but also that when we are Christians, we reject egocentric motives and desires and live a life in complete accordance with God's will. This, to me, is Christianity. It is so simple that we can never fully understand it and so demanding that we can never completely fulfill its demands in our whole lifetime. This is the Christianity of the apostles and I am sure of many others on this campus today. —J. W.



What the "Y" Is Here are the basic contentions and stivings of the National YMCAYWCA and of our "Y". Its fulfillment rests primarily with the attitude you, the students, hold concerning it. We believe t h a t there is a God and that he reveals Himself to an individual in a personal experience, unique and particular in a special confrontation to that person alone; and we believe t h a t no one can transmit the reality of this experience of God to another by laws, testimony of experiences, exhortations, or environmental situations. Therefore, the National YMCA-YWCA has more or less defined its aim as one of helping stimulate students to seek an experience of God and Jesus Christ by openness and sincerety to oneself and to others while studying, listening, speaking, serving, worshiping and all other phases of life. The unique role of the "Y" is to receive and accept all people into our fellowship without their feeling uneasy because they hold different opinions or cannot say t h a t they truly have had a Christian religious experience. For in the final analysis, God alone can determine whether or not a person is actually a Christian—not individuals or institutions. Yet with this inclusiveness there must never by mediocracy or compromizing in clearly stating basic beliefs in Jesus Christ as God incarnate and announcing the principal Christian teachings as found in the Bible. The role of the "Y" is to provide a sense of identity, student with student, and student with God. This identity may be found only if we have a goal which is compelling and demanding. This goal is our search for the great eternal truths relating man to himself, to others, and to God. The "Y" must be one place where we can freely search and ask questions, a place for honest religious doubters. The students are encouraged to participate in Saturday discussion groups which may help to introduce this identity and this attitude of searching. The role of the "Y" is collectively and individually to state opinions, to decide issues, and to take action. The role of the "Y" is to deal with significant positive materials, relating truth and life, revealing the joy of Christ and the love of God, and discovering the relationship between what we do and what we believe. The role of the "Y" is to work within the college community, discovering and meeting the needs of it. The total campus is our Christian concern. Thus the " Y " is concerned with all aspects of life as they are related to eternal t r u t h s and to the replacement of trivial affairs of existence f o r the significant g i f t of life. So you see, the " Y " is concerned with what it really means to be a Christian, not just concerned f o r people to say they are Christians. In this concernment we should subject ourselves to conflicting questions of faith and doubt, love and hate, openness and selfishness, humility and pride, orthodox and humanitarian beliefs, God and a set of ethics in order to strengthen, modify, and advance the clarity in our understanding of our personal relationship to God. For answers we are dependent on the mercy of God, the reality of Christ and the Holy Spirit, prayer, the Bible, service, literature, speakers'and leaders, dtscirssion, and our personal honesty, openness, and understanding. These are the real concerns of the "Y". The proposed purpose of our YM-YWCA is this: We, the members of the YM-YWCA of Hope College are united in the desire to realize full and creative lives through a growing knowledge of God. We do also determine to offer the benefits of Christian fellowship to all members of the College Community in the study of Truth. Further, we shall seek to realize the Kingship of Jesus Christ in our lives, on campus and in the world. Our purpose is not to indoctrinate, nor to restate old cliches, nor to busy students with something "nice," nor is it to baby "immature Christians." " Y " is to stimulate growth and vision and to help unveil the love of God and the reality of Jesus Christ. The success of the "Y" rests primarily on the students' attitudes and willingness to become religiously mature.

Y Sponsors Bible Study This past Sunday at 2:00 P.M. the Worship Commission commenced its first scheduled Bible study of the season. For the first six weeks the group will be discussing the book of Ephesians. The Koffee Kletz, the meeting place, will be open every Sunday from 2 to 3:00 P.M. with the following individuals serving as leaders: Vivian Anderson, Paul Fell, Nancy Raymer, Dave Simala, Dave Sunde, Russ Sybesma, and several substitutes.

Two Recitals By Roy Hamlin J o h n s o n By Jim Michmerhuizen Last Thursday and Friday it was the privilege of a small — but wildly enthusiastic — audience to hear two recitals of piano music which, in depth, endurance, and sheer virtuosity, are not likely to be equalled in this vicinity f o r a long time to come. The only parallel t h a t occurs to this reviewer is the series of two recitals given here by William Masselos in the spring of 1957. In both series we were treated to brilliant young pianists whose only fault lay in the f a c t t h a t there already was a Horowitz or a Rubinstein, and there was room f o r only one Horowitz, or one Rubinstein; pianists, that is, whose only fault is that they are not famous — and t h a t is no f a u l t at all. Of all the works listed on the program f o r Johnson's two re-

citals, only two did not require the utmost in pyrotechnical dexterity. These were the Bach Prelude and Fugue which opened the first program, and the Mozart Adagio in B Minor which, had there been time, would have opened the second. Everything else was music that, f o r sheer technical display, would have delighted even the most insensitive of audiences, even though the music thought were to escape them completely. But the audience a t both recitals was not insensitive to the content of the music, nor was Mr. Johnson insensitive to the mental demands of the program, nor was the music devoid of intellectual, emotional, or spiritual intensity: thus were we treated to two of the finest recitals Holland has known f o r some time.

Mr. Johnson played the D major Prelude and Fugue with discreet warmth, th f u g u e more romantically conceived than the prelude, which was interpreted as being in the style of a Gigue. The fugue, extremely tight in construction, abounds in stretti of every sort; these were accentuated by delicate nuances of tempo, to my mind a better course than attempting to trumpet each entry at the expense of the preceding one. I wish there were more to say about the Barber Soata t h a n t h a t it was the high point of the entire series; but f o r those complacent unfortunates who did not hear it that Thursday night, description is futile — and f o r those who did, any attempt to describe the work on paper would be quite beyond the power of your reviewer.

What! Honor? The pre-critical article appearing in last week's Anchor in which our student council president attempted to explain what an "honor code" is, and how it would affect Hope College campus life, seems to have fallen sadly short of its purpose. Before we can intelligently discuss this m a t t e r f u r ther, we must first clarify the issues involved. In his article, Mr. Brockmeier seems to assume that the "code" would affect only the academic aspect of our campus life—"The proposed Hope College Honor Code is that each student pledges t h a t all work submitted by the student f o r credit is his own work." This is very good as f a r as it goes. However, the first question we should examine is: Could an honor code be effective if it does not include other moral issues such a s : stealing school athletic equipment, pilfering vending machines, breaking into lunch lines, disturbing others in the library, etc.? If it can, we must be careful in refering to Hope as having a campuswide honor code; if not, we must still define (1) t h a t towards which we must have honor and (2) what honor means and how an honor code should ideally work. Many believe the honor code would eliminate rules of conduct, but this is absurd. Do away with an accepted pattern of conduct and you have nothing left to honor. (This, of course, brings up the question, who will form the patterns t h a t we must honorably follow. A f t e r adopting the code, it will be more difficult than it is now to make rules flexible enough to allow f o r new and better maxims to evolve, and yet be defined well enough to enable the campus community to live together in harmony.) Here Brockmeier uses what he terms a " r a t h e r crude analogy" of a man driving down a highway at sixty miles-per-hour, to illustrate what he would have us "honor" in order to avoid "inconvenience" while driving. At sixty miles-perhour, does the driver respect the center line f r o m a personal sense of what is right or f o r self preservation? Would we not report "breakdowns" f o r our mutual self interests ? Brockmeier says we should uphold the honor code to "produce and maintain a pleasant, healthy, conducive atmosphere" in which to carry out the college's "end." But then he says t h a t we maintain the honor code by making it a m a t t e r of "honor" f o r everybody to " t a t t l e " on anyone seen cheating. Now would you feel any more a t ease with a thousand proctors replacing one professor?

We would like to stress the potential of the young people we met, and ask t h a t you give your fullest support to Operation Annville, set up to provide the library equipment which these students so readily need and deserve.

A weekend in Chicago! This is something we all look forward to with great anticipation, as did these six members of the Y Social Responsibilities C o m m i s s i o n — Myrna Schalekamp, Dorene Tornga, Marilyn Scudder, Diane Sluyter, Barbara Gray, and Tom Bruno — who attended a seminar there last weekend on Urban Housing Problems. However, this weekend will be one that they will long remember, but for many different reasons.

The Anchor would like to offer a belated "thank you" to Dave and Fred Vande Vusse for the excellent photography in last week's issue.

From Lake Meadows, the group drove through the Gold Coast section of Chicago, driving two blocks further back into more slums and low housing projects, through the Rush Street section, stopping to visit Jane Addams*- Hull House, and also observing the Skid Row area which really opened the eyes of the group as to the hundreds of men, wandering aimlessly along the street because of lack of money, love, friends, or family. A walking tour of the West Side transition area was also made, where the students could observe the conditions of many of the homes more closely. Discussions were then held with leaders of the Chicago Housing Committee, the Urban League, and the NAACP giving many insights into past accomplishments and future problems that face them in Chicago. Now the NAACP is working on an integration housing program for all of greater Chicago.

Sunday morning the group attended an interracial Congregational Church, having another unique experience by seeing White, Spanish, and Negro people worshipping happily together in the midst of a city of turmoil. The weekend left the group with Store nearest your College a new insight into this great probSmartest Clothes on The Campus lem and a new realization of the Tux for rent responsibility that faces each of us today. Further weekends will be TER HAAR CLOTHING held by the Social Responsibilities 50 East 8th St. Commission for anyone interested.
