Boys Chorus To Sing At Civic Center "From the Land of Cactus and Canyons, the TUCSON ARIZONA BOYS CHORUS comes riding, bringing a program of classics, carols, folk songs, westerns. Their own original arrangements of songs of the Great Southwest, with coyote calls and the cries of ranging

calves, give their program its unique American flavor, transforming it into 'a round-up of music and fun.' " Such is one description of the group which will appear at the next Community Concert Wednesday, February 28, at 8:00 p.m. at the Civic Center. The Tucson Boys Chorus was founded in 1939 by its present

World Council Delegate To Speak In Chapel

director, Eduardo Caso. It now includes over 100 youngsters, of age 8 to 16, thirty of whom comprise the touring group. The singers are all locallypicked, and normally attend the Tucson Public Schools. Rehearsing is done in their spare time. On returning from tours, they make up for lost school time with special tutors.

The "Singing Cowboys" have toured the U.S. annually since 1953, received warmly by large audiences. They have appeared on major TV productions, and impressed even the conservative critics in a Town Hall recital. Referred to as our "Ambassadors in Levis," they have also taken their folk songs abroad, where they were received en-


thusiastically both as artists and as representatives of uniquely American culture. The Tucson Chorus is the third concert in this year's Community Concert Series. The two remaining concerts are the St. Louis Symphony, which will appear on March 17, and pianist Lee Luvisi, who will conclude the series on April 4.

Concert Band To Present

Mood O f Madness Characterizes "Five Finger Exercise" By SchaFFer

Reverend Jenks Also, in that year, he attended the meeting of the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches held in St. Andrews, Scotland. A graduate of the University of Vermont and New Brunswick Theological Seminary, Rev. Jenks has also studied at Union Theological Seminary and Chicago Theological Seminary. He has had previous pastorates in Middlebush, New Jersey, and Spring Valley, New York.

by David Klels A 'mood of madness' pervades the Little Theater. At one point in the second act, Louise says, "the man must be mad." The man was mad . . . mad at the agony of detachment, mad at the frustration of not being able to reach those he loved most, mad at his own dearth of understanding. As such, this man, Stanley Harrington as superbly played by Rodney Zegers, is the epitome of modern man. Peter Schaffer's Five Finger Exercise is a mood play set in England. The universality of this play, however, . extends much deeper into the heart of our own age. Man is angry because he is lost in an age of answers. The terror of man's existence is that these answers all too often do not apply to his individual questions. Perhaps you would like to meet the Harrington family, a nouveau riche family, not at all

unfamiliar, not at all unusual. Outwardly they appear to be a congenial family unit. There's the 'mad' father Stanley as played by Rod Zegers. Zeger's portrayal is an extremely sensitive one in that it provides a splendid contrast for the more important thematic lines as given by Clive. Stanley is the 'modern man' who desperately longs for 'the courage to be.' Zegers somehow captures his desperation and evokes the terror of man's existence despite his own self-made prosperity. Louise as carefully played by Margaret deVelder in her P&M debut is polished and brittle. The epitome of sterile, salon sophistication she storms the stage with culture-consciousness. Clive is the toy. B. J. Berghorst, showing a depth of extraordinary feeling, portrays the confused son with a certain beauty of tone. He seems to catch the feeling of being lost

and somehow wanting to be found . . . further, to be sincerely loved and understood. The ebullient 'hepcat' of the family is Pamela, girlishly and beautifully played by Jane Woodby. The antics of Pamela are truly childlike in their simplicity and wonder, and perhaps that is why she can rise above the family's chaos. Pamela in her innocence is wonder. Finally, into the family comes the German tutor, Walter Langer, as played by Gerald Hagans. This displaced German scholar and musician is handsome and cultured as well. His gracious manner represents a romantic challenge and outlet for the mother; to the son he is a much-needed friend and counselor; to the daughter he is her first symbol of love; to the .father be becomes a threat. In competing for his attentions, their personalities begin to crack until all are strip(Continued on page 6)

The Hope College Concert Band will present its winter conccrt, under the direction of Albert Schaberg, Sunday, February 25 at 4:00 in Dimnent Chapel. No admission will be charged. The program will feature two outstanding works by English composers. The first of these is the William Byrd Suit, originally written for a small keyboard instrument called the virginal. This is freely transcribed for band by Gordon Jacob. He selected six pieces from a collection c a l l e d the Fitzwilliam's Virginal Book. The subtitles arc: (1) Earle of Oxford's March (2) Pavana (3) John Come Kiss Me Now (4) The Mayden's Song (5) Wolsey's Wilde (6) The Bells The other English composition is Crown Imperial, a Coronation march written by William Walton, to celebrate the crowning of King George VI in England. Other selections will include Burst of Flame, March, March & Chorale, If Thou Be Near, Caribbean Fantasy, Nlmrod, and March Electric.

Political Science Students To Attend Con-Con A t Lansing A group of political science students under the supervision of Mr. Alvin VanderBush will witness history in the making at Constitutional Hall in Lansing next Tuesday. Witnessing the deliberations of the Michigan • Constitutional Convention will be a once-in-alifetime experience for Michigan residents and out-of-state government students. Delegates assembled at the convention are studying and discussing Michigan's 53 year old constitution. It is probable that a majority of them will agree on certain revisions in the basic law which the people of the state will be asked to approve at a .future election.

Pace t


Efficiency In the report the college prepared for the Ford-Foundation, several areas were of particular interest: finance, curriculum, and calender and teaching. The last concerns the student ^indirectly and the professor directly. Starting with the assumptions that the student body will Increase in size to 2,500 by 1972, and that the actual cost of keeping top-rate professors will increase, how does the college utilize Its scarce resources to best advantage? This assumes no increase in tuition except in step with the cost of rising living standards. This is an economic problem of supply and demand. Hope must keep pace with salaries paid elsewhere. With more money going to keep the good professors, the college has limited money left to hire new professors to keep the present ratio of professor to student at 1 to 18. In ten years the expectation is for the ratio to rise to 1 to 20. The challenge is the improvement of the efficiency of the teaching and learning operation. For a detailed, discussion read "A Memo to A CoUege Trustee" by Bradley RumL The three indicators Ruml uses to test efficiency are the ratio of the number of students to faculty members, the average number of hours a professor teaches per w e e k / a n d the relation of aggregate faculty compensation to tuition income. In the area of curriculum, RumTs hypothesis is that some courses can be large (increases in size) without losing effectiveness of actual learning. This means that other courses can be decreased in size, allowing more intimate faculty-student relationships without increasing the overall student-faculty ratio. The system has several problems which are difficult to solve. The American professor as contrasted to his European counterpart is not able to lecture to large groups and maintain interest. The American professor's forte is his ability to articulate and force minds to work in small groups. Secondly, the student is not used to this system. The present high school system spoon feeds the material. A third variable which is difficult to determine is deciding which courses are suited to this pedagogy. These are a few of the problems this and other liberal arts colleges face. Hope must not become a factory such as Michigan State, churning out graduates like industry turns out nuts and bolts on an automated assembly line. Real scholarship which comes from study and interchange of ideas between minda must be kept to the fore. This is not impossible but is difficult. One of the best ways to strive for this goal of educational excellence, aside from methodology of education, is to read voluminously. After all, most education comes from books. Ask Dr. Babbage or Russel Kirk who will be on campus next month. The Foundation report puts it this way, "More responsibility will be placed on the student to develop habits of independent inquiry; greater use will be made of books as a teaching device, and more emphasis will be placed on searching examinations that assess the real compentency of the student." —G. W.

Joint Education The scholarly Angelican clergyman with the English accent and twinkle in his eye came to know many people at Hope besides those at Western where he taught this past term. Dr. Babbage, a native of Australia, sprinkled his wit and articulated his scholarship as he mingled with Americans in whom he takes great interest. If you missed him, he will return for Spiritual Life Week next month. The intent is not to admonish for giving Dr. Babbage a right or wrong impression of Hope College or to praise Dr. Babbage. He is representative of something unique for the student. This past term at Western several Hope students enrolled in courses under Dr. Babbage's tutelage. In other words Dr. Babbage was a guest lecturer for the college as well as the seminary. He was a most welcome breath of air and beam of light. His type of scholarship should be experienced by all students as an impetus for higher education. Dr. Babbage is leaving, but there will be others like him coming to the seminary. If ennui and tedium from some classes have dampened your zeal for learning, a guest lecturer at the seminary might be the answer. The practice has been started. The practice should be continued. A superior mind and character is not seen often enough, a couple of times a year, or long enough, a few days on campus. The future sees the possibility of more speakers through Hope's participation In the Great Lakes College Association. Right now thinkers of excellence are just across the street. —G. W.

Businessman Steps Into Michigan Politics; Adopts Republicans W i t h Possibilities In 1964 by Bob Jaehnlg The Republican Party may have found the man with the ability and stature to bring the party back to life nationally, but they'll have to give him plenty of initial backing if he's ever going to be able to help them later. The man is George Romney, president of American Motors Corporation, newly-announced candidate for Governor of Michigan and frequently mentioned as a presidential possibility in 1964. His qualifications are impressive: He's the businessman who made monkeys out of what used to be the "Big Three" in the automotive world. Inheriting a sick American Motors Corp. from the late George Mason in the early 1950's, Romney decided that what this country needs is a comfortable but compact automobile — like his company's Rambler. The rest of the industry and the motoring public laughed then, but at last look,

the once-derided Rambler had placed American Motors within the Circle of the auto giants, creating a "Big Four." Rambler no\^ rivals Plymouth, and every one of the new "compact" cars from the other automakers is a tribute on wheels to the most forward-looking man in the industry. Romney should be palatable to labor. In the summer of 1961, American Motors stole a march on Walter Reuther's task force of modern-day Robin Hoods with an initial contract o>ffer incorporating a profit - sharing plan and other generous provisions that actually exceeded improvements sought by the UAW Bargaining Council. Now Reuther, Meany and Co. will have to dig mighty hard for ways in which to pin an antilabor label on Romney and make it stick. It'll be tough to drum up solid rank-and-file labor opposition to a candidate who gives workers more at the bargaining table than their own leaders ask for. Big Labor will

WORLD NEWS COMMENTARY by Richard Brand (CAPE CANAVERAL) Around the world inj 267 minutes three times, at 17,545 miles per hour is the latest way to travel — for those so inclined. John Glenn, who is vacationing with his family in Florida, made this historic trip without any ill physical or mental results. Greetings from all over the world were re-1 ceived by the thousands at Glenn's home. Nikitaj Khruschev proposed U. S. - Russian cooperation! in future space exploration. Physicians reported Glenn was in excellent^ condition after the space flight. j (NEWS SHORTS) The Midwest (10 states) was hit by another snow storm, Iowa being hardest hit. The U. S. Post Office released stamps of the 1st orbital flight as soon as Glenn returned to earth. Pad 14 at Cape Canaveral is being made ready for the next manned flight of 18 trips around the earth. It was interesting to note that over a million people in the U. S. stopped work to watch Glenn, over the world many other thousands, waited to find out how the flight went. At some times during the day 200 people lined the Coffee Kletz to watch the flight. Also we noted that other news spots in the world seemed to lay dead this week.

OTHERS SPEAK O U T To the editor: As the date of the big annual, home game with our arch rival Calvin drew near, most of the students grew impatient with anticipation. We all looked forward to a victory to assuage our previous loss. Plans of finding a place to sit with friends and view the contest were ' being made. Then a day or two before the big event, the announcement was made that no general admission tickets would be sold. This literally destroyed all plans of students who were planning on taking their non-college friends, op parents to see the "big deal." People who hadn't already bought reserved seats or who weren't lucky (?) enough

to be college students were just "out of luck." There was no legal way to even get into the building without being nabbed by a policeman or an APO member. What must a person do to get his special friend in to see this special event? Are the few friends or parents of college students going to overcrowd the stadium? Something should be done so that at least friends of the students could view the "private" game. Tickets wouldn't have to be offered to the public, but at least a provision for students' "non-college" dates, etc. could be made, I would believe. Thank you very much. W.R.

have to come up with a new formula for mud to throw at Romney. As President of Citizens for Michigan, a group of prominent Michigan business and industry men formed under the stress of the recent (and, for that matter, current) fiscal crisis in the State Treasury, Romney talked sense to both a spendthrift Democratic administration and a stubbornly un-cooperative GOP legislature. He reminded Democrats that even Harvard men know that the stuff doesn't grow on trees, and he told Republicans flatly that their i n c e s s a n t squawking about Democrats "wrecking the state's national economic image" was doing just as much to descredit the state. The results of Romney's generally-distributed slaps on the wrists should show up in a new State Constitution, now being drafted by the Constitutional Convention in Lansing. Romney, incidentally, is a Con-Con delegate. Romney is politically astute. The build-up to the announcement of his candidacy for Governor was masterfully executed. After the announcement, Gus Scholle, president of the state AFL-CIO Council threw the first handful, calling Romney a "big clown" and accusing him of pretending to have a "pipeline to God," a reference to newspaper mention of the fact that Romney spent the hours before his announcement praying for wisdom in the decision. Romney silenced his critic when he remarked drily that the same "pipeline" is open to anyone. We could cite more items in Romney's credentials, but there's little reason to now. Because the fact is that, as good as he appears as a candidate of national appeal, chances are against his ever getting as far as the 1964 National GOP Convention. Don't look now but, Republican Legislature notwithstanding, Michigan is a Democratic state. There are a couple ol million Detroit area voters who almost always listen to the man who handles their union dues when he says Republicans per se are anti-labor. • Romney's gubernatorial opponent is sure to be incumbent Gov. John B. Swainson, heir of six-term Governor G. Mennen Williams,, and a seasoned, shrewd campaigner in his own right. In addition to support of the usual Big Labor forces in the state, Swainson can count on plenty of help from national labor bosses. Top Labor Democratic Party men know that Romney's national appeal makes him dangerous, but if he loses to Swainson, his political future evaporates. They'll crush him before he gets too far if they can. This means national GOP leaders are going to have to give him all the backing they can. Probably the best thing he can do is invade the Detroit area with an army of precinct-level supporters, waving copies of the American- Motors-UAW p a c t under the noses of every worker in every plant, reminding them that AMC employes didn't purchase their happy situation with their union dues. Meanwhile, back on the farm, local Republican workers will have to get the outstate voters, who usually favor the GOP, to flock to the polls in the election. Republicans generally l o s e statewide elections in Michigan by some 200,000 Detroit area votes. Romney needs more than half of that 200,000 margin to assure himself ot a tight victory. If he wins, Republicans have their presidential candidate, Michigan's GOP stays intact, Big Labor loses a round while the laboring man himself is still protected. An all-out, pro-Romney assault on Detroit would be good for the nation, state, labor and business alike.

The bidding: North 1 Diamond 3 No Trump

The opening lead was the six of hearts. For the past two weeks this column has featured two hands that have been bid correctly and yet the contracts were defeated. Lest you think I am a pessimist, this week we shall look at a hand that was bid correctly and, through proper play by the declarer, was made. After all, defensive play is important, but nearly all of us like to be good declarers rather than good defenders. South's response of two no trump is much better than a response of two clubs; South has a 4-3-3-3 distribution and all suits stopped except for the one his partner bid. North's bid of three no trump is certainly a close out. When West led his six of hearts. South was certain that he had led his fourth best from a long suit. Therefore, South put up dummy's queen, which held the trick. South now counted seven tricks off the top: three spades, two diamonds, one club, and the one heart already in. (This, by the way, is what you should do everytime you are playing a contract: first count the tricks you can take immediately). Where would the other two tricks come from? The answer of course is quite obvious: either from the - diamond or from the club suit But each suit requires a finesse in order to get more tricks than just the ones off the top. And South's " problem was which finesse to try, for only one of the two need be taken. The solution to his problem is not difficult, for all South has to ask himself is, "What opponent would I rather have in the lead?" The answer is obviously West, for with West leading hearts South's king becomes a stopper, if Ebst were to be in the lead, he would be able to lead hearts through South's king, thus giving West four

heart tricks and setting the contract. Therefore, South did not take the diamond finesse; if it were to lose (as it does), East would probably lead a heart and set the contract. South instead took the club finesse; like the diamond finesse, it loses, 'but West cannot run his heart suit. South makes his contract with three spades, one heart, two diamonds, and three clubs; and if the defense lapses, he might even make four no trump. Some of you will likely say, "South was extremely lucky because West happened to hold the ace of hearts and led away from it." However, South can still make three no trump when East holds the ace of hearts— as we shall see next week. Bidding problem of the week: The answer to last week's quiz is simply pass. Whenever

Two weeks ago the students at Michigan Tech enjoyed three days of skiing, skating, skits and statues, or in other words their annual Winter Carnival, this year's theme being "It's A Cold World." In a take-off on their theme the various campus fraternities, dorms, and clubs shaped enormous mountains of snow into satirical images that included everything from Castro on a Ford tractor to Kennedy sitting in a rocking chair with Khrushchev standing behind him with a half-eaten world in his hands. The lighter side of the annual festival included the crowning of a queen, a formal dance appropriately labeled the "Sno-Ball" and a hockey game with M i c h i g a n State. Also counted among the schedule of events was a concert by the Four Preps. News briefs read: Due to a protest petition of 1,000 student signatures, the E a s t e r n Michigan University Administration a n d Faculty Council have agreed not to request a student's race, religion and nationality information upon his application for campus housing. Pennsylvania has established a committee which will develop standards to guide the conversion of fourteen state colleges into liberal arts institutions. In the past the colleges were mainly interested in training for public school teachers. "REST IN PEACE, HARVEY H. HARVEY" read the headline in Flint Community College's Clamor, and thus stands the obituary of what was to some an imaginary pest but to others a very real and lovable companion. The article states that Harvey, a frequent Sunday visitor here at Hope College, was trampled beneath the feet of hundreds of Flint Community College students on their way to class over dangerously slippery sidewalks. The editorialized obituary goes on to state that Harvey would have been better off it he had subscribed to the Student Insurance Program for then his survivors would not now be faced with heavy hospital expenses. Of course this whole incident is a friendly suggestion to take out some insurance before you crack your skull on the icy sidewalks! Words of wisdom by D. Merit found in Alma's Almanian: "What most of us here need to get off our chests is our chin. Acting like a fool is bad enough, but it's even more painful to realize that you weren't acting. Etiquette is nothing more than learning to yawn with your mouth closed."

Dutch Piet From Netherlands Enjoys Work by Jan Rietveld


"Man! Man on floor!" This cry is heard in Phelps most any morning when Dutch Piet goes to work. As it echoes through the halls, it is answered by cries of sleepy girls. "Where?" "Let's pick him up!" "A real man?" Clad in a charming little green hat with yellow feather, Piet makes his daily rounds fixing registers, locks, furnaces, lights, and anything else which is mechanical and broken. As a mem-

ber of the maintenance staff, Piet does all jobs with a smile —under one condition: all requests for repair work must come from the proper authority. Mr. Piet Van Pelt received his schooling in his native country, obviously the Netherlands. During the war he was stationed in England as a member of the Dutch navy and served as his ship's engineer. There he received his technical training and there he met his wife, Phyllis.

Coaxed by his brother, Piet brought his wife to America in 1954 and settled here in Holland, Michigan. Nature-boy Piet enjoys hobbies as swimming, golf and hunting in his spare time. Piet is well known to many Hope students as the easy going janitor with a dimple, the one who likes his "coffee time." Piet assests that he doesn't mind working for "the girls" because "he knows how to handle women."

Choose a figured, striped or plaid shirt to best carry off your solid color vest. All button-down, these sportshirta come in wool or good-looking fiber blends. -

the return of the fancy vest opens up vast possibilities from the bright, brash colors to the sporty designs, both traditional and new. Increasingly seen on campus is the classic Tattersall. Its distinctive two-color crossbar comes in red with black, green with gold, or blue with black—on white or cream background. Popular, too, are solid bold colors, specially red, yellow, tan, olive and gold to set off the patterned tweeds, plaids and checks. Big challenge, the v e s t . . . because it's not so simple to co-ordinate it with four other garments that don't match: jacket, slacks, shirt and tie. Adding the fancy vest should emphasize either pleasant contrast or harmony. Usually, patterned garment look best against plain garments, and vice versa. Often, however, pattern in your jacket, like tweed, herringbone, hazy or finechecks, will carry off a striking print or Tattersall handsomely. If you get stymied, you'll find guidance at your favorite menswear store.

German Students

During the German Club meeting Thursday, February 22, nine Hope students received awards for significant work in German during the past semester. These awards were books provided for the German Department by the Consulate of the Federal Republic of Germany in Detroit. Students receiving the awards were Brian Dykstra, Robert De Young, Marjorie Gouwens, Joyce Harmelink, David Hollenbach, Thomas Poole, Robert Tigelaar, Chris Van Lonkhuyzen, and Joanne Visscher. The recipients of books in German 12 and 32 were determined solely on the basis of the scores in the departmental final examination, while award winners in the more advanced courses were chosen on the basis of their total achievement and contribution during the semester.

Kazoo Drops Calvin; Tie Hope For Lead FEAT


by Bob Kreunen Jim Vanderhill and Ekdal Buys are currently running onetwo in the MIAA conference scoring race. Vanderhill, despite a midseason slump, has scored 255 points in Hope's eleven conference games for a 23.2 average and is on the verge of winning his second consecutive scoring title. Meanwhile Buys has scored 198 points in eleven games for an 18 point average and leads Albion's Denny Groat who has 188 points and Olivet's Dick Groch who has 186. It is quite possible that both Groat and Groach will surpass Buys as Albion has three games yet to play in the MIAA while Olivet has two. Hope has only tomorrow night's game at Alma left on the schedule. Glenn Van Wieren is in tenth place in conference scoring with 131 points as the only other Dutchman in the top ten.

Wednesday night's victory over Aquinas was the sixth consecutive win for Hope and raised their season record to three games above five-hundred at 12-9. Hope has what should be an easy victory in their final game of the year tomorrow night at Alma and a win would leave the Dutch with the same 13-9 record that they finished with last year. Obviously the difference between this year's season and last is this year the Dutch managed to beat the other teams in the MIAA. On the other hand, seven of their nine losses have come against non-conference foes. Although 13-9 is not much better than average it will not be the 13-9 record that will be remembered but rather the 10-2 mark and with the conference championship, the fifth in six years.

Cosmos fraters, Indies lead la Ball; Emmies Look Strong In Bowling The intramural sports program is full including basketball, football, bowling, and tennis. The intramural sports now in prograss are basketball and bowling. In basketball the race is between the Fraters, Cosmos, and Indies for the top spot. The big games coming up are on February 24 and 26. On both of these dates the Fraters are pitted against the Cosmos and the hopes of both teams lie on the outcome of these games. In bowling the Emmies have the upper hand with the best chance of winning the league. The Emmies have shown strong form and good balance in their three wins and no losses thus far. The sports coming up in the near future are ping-pong and volleyball. This year for the first time since the forming of the intramural leagues there will be two volleyball leagues and pingpong is rated on an equal point basis with all other sports.

Dutchmen Drop Albion From Contention; 57-Point Total A t Half Hisli For Season Led by the shooting of co-captain Ekdal Buys and Jim Vanderhill, Hope College nailed down their ninth MIAA victory over upset-minded Albion last Saturday night. Hope jumped to a big 57-38 lead at halftime and although the Britons fought back the second half, the closest that Albion could come was 72-64 with slightly less than nine minutes left in the ball game. Hope connected on 22 of 39 field goal attempts in the first half and the 57-point total was a new single half high for this year's Dutch. Vanderhill once again led all scorers with 13 of 24 from the floor and eight free-throws for a total of 34 points. Buys hit 9 of 13 field goal attempts and added four free-throws for 22 points. Gary Nederveld and Glenn Van Wieren chipped in with thirteen points each, the only other Dutchmen in double figures. Emil De Grazia and Dennis Groat led Albion with 25 and 21 respectively. Hope converted 25 of 33 free throw attempts as Albion was charged with 26 fouls including five on their 6' 4" center Jim Pappenfuss who left the game shortly after the start of the second half. Albion made only 10 of 21 from the foul line. Hope concluded with a shooting percentage of 46% with 34 baskets in 73 attempts while Albion hit on 33 shots in 93 tries for 33%. While Hope kept their hopes alive for an undisputed conference championship, the loss all but eliminated Albion from the conference race. The Britons now possess a 6-3 record and still have games remaining with Calvin and Kalamazoo away from home.

As far as intramural sports go the biggest thing of all is the All-Sports Trophy which goes to the fraternity which accumulates the most points by the end of the intramural season. This year it looks like a close race between the Cosmos and the Fraters. The Cosmos have won the handball and tennis competition while the Fraters have won the football and golf competition. Therefore the outcome of the basketball league is a very important factor in the race for the All-Sports Trophy.

Dutch Victor In Non-MIAA Game; Aquinas Falls In Last Home Game Hope College's Flying Dutchmen barely squeaked by Aquinas College of Grand Rapids, Mich., Wednesday night in the Holland Civic Center, winning by a slim 87-83 margin. Once again it was Jim Vanderhill and Ekdal Buys who led the Hope attack, Vanderhill with 28 points and Buys with 17. Glen Van Wieren added 15. After taking a commanding 48-33 halftime lead Hope faltered in the second half and was "on the ropes" when the game ended. Aquinas used a zone press for much of the second half, and although Hope, with Bob Reid doing most of

"Mood of Madness" (Continued from page 1) ed naked emotionally exposing long hidden family hostilities and suppressions. Is there more than nothing in life? Is life being choked to death beneath blankets of humcn falsity? Shaffer's play poses these and more questions, all of which are apropos to you. The question of personal involvement with life and with those who are struggling to live life is perhaps the most important question of our age. The blankets of Clive's dream become the masks of man's existence. Man must tear off these masks, and begin caring about the anxiety of human agony. Life must be lived from "blink to blink." Then the 'mood of madness' will be dispelled by a 'mood of gladness.'

the work, had little trouble in getting the ball up the court. The press upset Hope's offensive play as the Dutch shot very poorly the second half. The Tommies were led by substitute guard Gary Fewless who connected for thirteen field goals, eleven in the second half, for 26 points. Tom Williamson followed Fewless with 20 points. Hope held a commanding edge in the free throw department by converting 17 of 26 as Aquinas committed sixteen fouls. Aquinas attempted only nine free throws, and made seven, as Hope committed only ten fouls during the entire game.

Kazoo Defeats Calvin By Two Kalamazoo College kept its hopes for a share of the MIAA conference title alive with a stirring 62-60 triumph over Calvin College Wednesday night. Kazoo took a 38-29 halftime lead but Calvin fought back to tie the score several times before missing a last second shot that would have tied it again.
