Science Club Hears Prof. Lampen Talk Last Tuesday night the Hope College Science Club met in the Emersonian Society hall. After the fire was coaxed into some semblance of activity, there was a general "round-the-fire" discussion. The first number was rendered by Dick Mouw, who read the paper, "Television," written by Adrian Kuyper. After some discussion of this topic the main speaker of the evening was given free rein. Then Professor Lampen gave the members one of those inimitable rambling talks on Steinmetz, that only he knows how to give. The audience was in turn amused, inspired, and awed at the remarkable tales Prof. Lampen gave of this GermanAmerican genius. Only those who have heard our Math, teacher talk when he has his heart and soul in his subject can appreciate the rare treat that the Science Club was given. After some discussion the meeting broke up. o

SPOELSTRA IS HIGIf SCORE MAN WITH 18 POINTS TO HIS CREDIT SCORE 36-17 The Hope Yearlings gave the Reserves from Calvin College a sound licking at the Armory last Friday evening by the tune of 8617. The Frosh gave the finest exhibition of basketSall so far this year, before a crowd which was thoroughly convinced at the end of the session that they could play basketball. At the outset Hope jumped into a small lead through the fine playing of Van Haitsma and Spoelstra. Hope maintained a meager lead as the half closed with a score of 18-10.

The Frosh came back the second half with some extra "pep" and pushed up the score by leaps-and bounds. They simply passed to "Watty" Spoelstra and then he would either score or he would pass to some other Frosh who was waiting to score. This kind of procedure continued throughout the major part of the last half. Calvin on the other hand attempted to put up a fight at times, but their scoring sprees were short lived. Spoelstra was easily the outstanding member. of the Frosh team, he only made eighteen points for his evening's share of fun. And the entire team play was centered about him. Dalman and . Van Haitsma also toiled in a fine manner, and aided Spoelstra on many plays. Calvin presented only one outstanding player, a native of Holland, Westing by name, who scored eleven points. Echoing with calls of merriment, Vander Poel handled the game the "Fraternal Hall" was the scene very well. of the annual Washington Stag, Hope Reserves—M „ . .

Fraternal Hold Washington Stag

Y. M. and Y . W . Hold Joint Meeting The Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W.C. A. held a joint meeting last Tuesday evening in the chapel. "Bud" Vredevoogd led the meeting on the subject "Living Together." He lamented the lack of real conversation on worthwhile topics, which is so often displaced by idle chatter, and the desire for artificial amusement instead of the appreciation of natural beauty. Too many of us, he cited, see only the fences on the campus and fail to see the pines. He pleaded for frankness of conversation on the vital and religious things. Too great a number of us are apt to condemn a fellow student before we really have become acquainted well enough to appreciate his worth for often this same person becomes a leader in college life. Mr. Jay Van Dusen, a cometist from Grand Rapids, played "The Lost Chord," which was followed by a pleasing encore. He was accompanied at the piano by his father. The devotional exercises were conducted by Edith Dings. Howard Schade led the singing and was assisted by Mr. Van Dusen. This meeting replaced the customary exchange of representatives from the "Y" groups and proved very successful, judging from the interest shown by the large number present. No man will ever be a big executive who feels that he must, either openly or under cover, follow up every order he gives and see that it is done—nor will he ever develop a capable assistant-— Mahin.

Cosmopolitans Hold Stag at Grace Church RAINBOW IS THEME The 39th annual stag of the Cosmopolitan Society was held at Grace Episcopal church parlors Feb. 21, 1929. A delicious dinner was served by the ladies of the church to approximately 50 guests. After the dinner was over, cigars and cigarettes were passed and the party settled down to enjoy a fine program.

A special program in commemoration of Washington's Birthday was given by the Senior Class last Thursday. The program consisted of readings from incidents of Washington's life, a biographical sketch, the rendering of a poem and other appropriate numbers. Many of Washington's wonderful traits were brought out in the presentation of a few of his many letters. Those that took part were Alberta Rawls, Deane Knoll, Catherine Nettinga, Esther Mulder, Joy Hungerink, Milton Van Den Berg and Ben Eckwieler, Willard Van Den Berg of the Junior Class acted as chairman.
