Many Appearances While in Holland, Mrs. Wayne will appear at the Century Club Monday evening and at the Women's Literary Club earlier Tuesday afternoon. Her visit is sponsored by the Netherlands Information Bureau of Holland. Mrs. Wayne discontinued her professional singing when her husband, who was also a professional singer, died. Following a year's rest she entered radio with music as the theme f o r her life. European Traveller During her eight years as a radio commentator and producer of an hour long morning program, Mrs. Wayne made many trips abroad and based her programs on the music she found in her path. According to the Windsor Daily Star, Mrs. Wayne is "very entertaining to talk to and has many tips to offer anyone who is thinking of visiting Paris." Hope students going to Europe this summer will find benefit talking to Mrs. Wayne as she has suggestions for sight-seeing and can tell how to visit the off-the-beatenpath places more typically European than the usual'^ourist spots. Also of interest to the Europe bound Hope man would be Mrs. Wayne's "Three Walks in Paris," tips on how to savor Paris as well as European countries.

Disc Library Expanding Students are reminded by Miss Holleman, chairman of the record library in the music building, t h a t a new schedule f o r listening is now in effect. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, the library will be open periods 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8. Tuesday and Thursday the library will be open periods 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8. Regulations for the use of the records are posted on the library door. In general, records do not go out of the building except with permission. Students who need to use a recording for student teaching can make an arrangement for this. Circulation figures have also increased immensely. During the first semester a total of 2,033 selections were checked out f o r use in various courses. There has been a steady rise in the number of records in the librar y ; presently there a r e about 1,630 discs in the collection. New records in the collection include : S c h o n b e r g — Complete String Quartets; B a c h — God's Time Is Best; Songs of t h e World; Shostakovich — Symphony No. 9; Prokofieff — Symphony No. 5; and Strauss—Sonatina in F.

Athletics, another outstanding p a r t of Hope College t h a t has received considerable attention as of late, through winning football and basketball teams, will again be spotlighted in the approaching NCAA invitational regional tournament, to be held in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, March G and 7. This is the second consecutive year Hope College has been invited to the NCAA Great Lakes regional, and while such honors are perhaps not commonplace, yet we did expect it and were not surprised when the bid was received. Now we already have good centers, guards, and forwards, a strong bench, and fine coach; what the team needs now, more than during the regular season, as it finally faces rough competition, is a student body, plus the faculty, solidly behind it. This does not say that f a n support has been poor during the season, f o r it has been quite good; it does say that we take our ball club for granted and this produces complacency, almost inevitably. The teams Hope will meet in the regional games will not be of MIAA calibre — they shall be decidedly better and therefore more difficult to conquer. It is no secret t h a t Hope College has a good team, several of our players being three and four year veterans — but any team can lose, and this should not be regarded as an impossibility, f o r some team may want to win worse than we want to, even though they may not be as good. Admittedly, thought of a Hope defeat is not pleasant in any way, but to lose to a team t h a t wants to win more t h a n we do, is bitter, very bitter. We have the power to take what we want, if only we want it enough. Realizing t h a t some f a n s f r o m other schools travel several hundred miles to back their teams, we f r o m Hope should t a k e advantage t h a t we are but 170 miles or so f r o m the t o u r n a m e n t site, and go!

It would seem t h a t Mr. DeVries, not content to be called the f u n niest w r i t e r on the American continent a f t e r the publication of his first novel, COMFORT ME WITH A P P L E S , has gone on and copped the title as the world's foremost humorous

novelist with



pearance of his latest work T H E M A C K E R E L PLAZA. As in the world of. suburbia, De Vries seems to be intimately a t home in the broad expanse of modern liberal Christianity. Rev. Mackerel, sometime hero of his newest work, is depicted in such a way, and with such delicate shades of satire and irony, touched perhaps with a slight t a i n t of bitterness, t h a t the reader wonders if author DeVries himself did not serve as the prototype. The peculiar domain of Rev. Mackerel is the Peoples Liberal Church, complete with little theater, psychiatric ward and a pulpit made of " F o u r delicately differing fruitwoods symbolizing the Four Gospels and their failure to harmonize." The Most Reverend Mackerel moves within this t i g h t little circle quite successfully until he begins to fight a movement by his parishioners to build a memorial to his wife, lately departed f o r perhaps a better world. As he has every intention of m a r r y i n g a girl whom he met by chance on the street (while heckling a sidewalk evangelist) the building of such a memorial would only serve to awaken his wife's memory again and under such circumstances it would be extremely embarrassing if the m a r r i a g e bells were to peal out their joyous song. ^.^hjo^complicating the plot and Rev. Mackerel's life is his dead wife's sister, Hester, who acts as a voluntary housekeeper f o r him, and never lets him f o r g e t w h a t a wonderful woman her sister was. And then there exists a w a r m repertoire of characters which only the mind of DeVries can produce: the director of the church's little t h e a t e r ; Dr. Von Plantz, head of t h e psychiatry division, who, to the minister's embarassment is reconverted to "the old-time religion"; the f a t h e r of the college boy who writes his m a s t e r ' s dis-

A Tribute To Hope's Cheerleaders

On the good side it m u s t be admitted t h a t the dance restored a certain amount of meaning to the hackneyed poem and its even more commonplace musical setting, and t h a t the poem lent intelligibility to the gestures of t h e dance. Throughout the p r o g r a m Mr. Matteo gave short explanations of the dances performed, and prefaced his encore with a confession t h a t he knew he was tiptoeing on the edge of the ridiculous. This statement itself saved the dance f r o m complete failure. *



But the same p r e f a t o r y r e m a r k s kept the dance from complete success as well as f r o m dismal asininity. For, say w h a t he would, Matteo was not able to hide f r o m

his audience the f a c t t h a t the real reason f o r the existence of his interspersed r e m a r k s was simply t h a t his p a r t n e r needed time in which to change costumes. Besides this his explanatory r e m a r k s often had an air of condescension about them, which cooled an otherwise s a t i s f y i n g p r o g r a m . In the particular case of the " T r e e s " dance, a considerable amount of time preceding the dance itself w a s spent in some sermonizing which could better have been left out. At any rate—if this is any comf o r t to my readers — I still consider it a p r o g r a m t h a t w a s not a waste of time. P e r h a p s it is just my weakness f o r Indian dancing, even if I must hear a scratchy record of Joyce Kilmer at the same time.

The Inquiring Reporter By J a n e Tomlinson Question: What do you think should be the purpose of chapel? Marge Ten Haken, S r . : I think chapel is the place f o r the college body to come together as a whole to begin the day; this is the place each of us can pay due tribute to our Creator and receive His guidance f o r the day's activities. Cathy Baker, F r e s h m a n : Hope's chapel first, is not holding the reverance of worship. People come because they have to, required attendance. You will find in the Bible t h a t in not one place does God want people to worship because they HAVE TO. He will curse you r a t h e r t h a n p a t you on the back. I f o r one person love church, it's my life. And even I resent "non-purpose" chapel. If we must come, let's hear some preaching, not some white washed speech. When people go to chapel they go to seek God and their Savior (or if they haven't found t h e i r savior and want to and don't something is wrong). Let's get busy and act— God isn't going to white wash us on Judgement Day. He's going to throw more in Hell t h a n in Heaven. Let's t r y to Save and Witness and Seek s t r e n g t h and guidance in chapel. Ron Stockhoff, J u n i o r : Really, and unfortunately so, morning chapel service is largely a time f o r a few minutes of so-called studying or napping. Ideally, and this depends mutually on the chapel leaders and the student body, chapel services can be a time f o r a few moments of personal reorientation through quiet meditation and the thinking through of the words of the speaker. The phrase, " s t a r t i n g the day with God," is probably too familiar andhence is misunderstood. But its genuine meaning is a good one.

and if this is a t least partially fulfilled by chapel service, chapel is serving its real purpose. ** o b e r t " B u z " Hayes, Sophomore: I think chapel should be a source of personal inspiration and guidance f o r the coming day. I do feel if the chapel were open at night this would fulfill the need for quiet, individual, and uninterrupted prayer. Dr. Henry Voogd, Head of the Department of Religion and Bible: I am happy to respond to this question since I have a deep interest in our daily chapel program. In my view the purpose of chapel is to worship God; to create a setting f o r a Divine-human encounter; to provide an atmosphere in which one may e n t e r into fellowship with the Holy One. Here is an avenue of expression that can lead to the experience of some of the highest moments of one's life. True worship is never forgotten and its influence lasts as long as life. The chapel p r o g r a m will achieve this goal only f o r those who approach the services in a r i g h t mood and spirit. An insincere h e a r t or unrelenting spirit will r e n d e r the worship of non-effect. J u s t as one cannot expect a classroom session to a t t a i n its purpose except he has adequately prepared the assignment, so one cannot t r u l y experience God in worship a p a r t f r o m a mood of expectancy and spirit of reverence f o r t h a t which is high and holy. Our challenge is to enter the chapel services with a positive a t t i t u d e ; to make up our mind to worship. I n . t h i s m a n n e r the time purpose of chapel will be achieved and God will be glorified.

Dutch Drop Hillsdale 81-66 of Season By Merwyn Scholten With a fired-up shooting spree the Hope College Dutch chalked up their 11th MIAA win with a 81-66 victory over Hillsdale College Saturday night before a packed Civic Center. The game marked the final home appearance f o r the Dutch and saw the last home appearance of seniors Paul Benes, Darrell " W h i t e y " Beernink, Wayne Vriesman and J u n Buursma. Action started quickly as Warren Vander Hill connected his favorite jump shot with the game only a few seconds old. Hillsdale failed to score on the return and Hope gained possession, brought the ball down and scored again. Captain Paul Benes started his own scoring b a r r a g e and netted 8 points in the first f o u r minutes of the game. Hillsdale offered some resistance but could not meet the challenge presented by the rebounding and scoring talents of Benes, Ritsema and Vander Hill. At halftime the Dutch possessed a 47-26 bulge which their opponents never seriously challenged. The second half saw more substitutions on both sides as coach DeVette worked his reserves while Hillsdale's coach worked f o r the right combination.

The visitors were forced to shoot from the outer court after being stopped under the boards by Hope's big men, Benes and Ritsema. This they did with some success but not often enough to narrow Hope's substantial margin. Top scorers were Benes and Vander Hill with 21 apiece, followed by Ritsema with 17. Beernink played his usual fine floor g a m e and netted 11 points, his best effort in t h r e e games. Vriesman aided the big boys under the boards and tallied 8 points. High man f o r the Dales was D. Bohannan with 13. Hope hit on only 16 of 55 shots in the second half f o r 29 per cent and ended with 34 of 100 f o r 34 per cent. The Dales collected 10 of 41 in the first half f o r 24 per cent and 14 of 30 in the second half f o r 47 per cent and ended with 24 f o r 71 f o r 34 per cent, identical to Hope's game mark. The Dutch made 13 of 21 at the charity line and Hillsdale cashed in on 19 of 26. With some three minutes remaining, coach DeVette put in his four senior members f o r t h e i r final home action. They received a tremendous standing ovation f r o m the elated crowd. It was t r u l y a fitting climax to a well-played game.
