H O P E COLLEGE, Holland, Michigan, F e b . 28, 1923


"Secret Service" a Great Success. The booming of cannon, the clear bugle call, the measured tramp of the boys in gray, all carried us back to the days of '65. For three successive nights Hope's dramatic talent managed to create a most effective amosphere for one of tho best plays yet presented on the Carnegie platform. We were transported to gay old Virginia, not so gay now with the war-clouds above it, and lived thru tense moments while we say unraveled the age-old story of the strain and pathos that come when love and honor clash. "Secret Service" is a strong play in itself, and the large caste interpreted it in a most acceptable fashion. There is action and compelling interest from the moment that the curtain rises. The Varney family in old Richmond is in the very midst of the tragedy of war. Young Varney begs to join his comrades on the firing-line, whilo charming Edith is showing a well warranted interest in the fortunes of a certain Captain Thorne. J u s t before the last farewells, the Confederate Secret Service agent, Benton Arrelsford throws the househoU into confusion by charging young Thorne with being a Northern spy. There are gripping moments and masterly acting thruout. Young Varney kisses his Mother farewell and proudly answers the call to arms. In the struggle sc^n* Thome's brother, escaped from Libhy prison, wounds Himself rather

Another day or two and Hope's orators will be on the march to Hillsdale to compete in the M. 0 . L. Contest. Our representatives are full of pep and they are going with a deter• mination to win. "Nothing short of the highest honors f o r our Alma Mater" is their motto. Let us too, accept this motto and back our orators with that spirit which is typical of Hope. With an oration of undoubted power and specific directness, Nelle Kole will represent Hope in the M. 0 . L. Contest next Friday afternoon. Coached consistently by Dr. Nykerk, accompanied by her friends, supported by the student body, we believe she will represent us in the Spirt of Hope, that she will be a credit to her coach and her school, and a compliment to her opponents. Dr. Nykerk has said of her, "There is every reason to believe that Miss Kole will be one of the strongest (Oontinued on Page 2) candidates for first honors Hope College ever had. We may well be proud of what she has done and of NOTICE, what she will do. Her delivery and The Hope—Grand Rapids "Y" address have improved greatly since last year.

In his Freshman year he took third place iiL the Raven Contest. • As a Sophomore he won in that contest and became college orator for this year. He also succeeded in winning a place on the College Debating Tam and helped to uphold Hope's honors against Alma last Friday night, when Hope's team downed Alma by a 2 to 1 count. Mr. Heemstra is characterized, as one rf those men who, with an ideal before them, never grow weary until 'he ideal has been attained. Such is his spirit for the coming contest. Dr. Mykeik is much enthused over the sue ess of "Si's" training. Are we as enthusiastic as our representatives and their coach? Let's show our pep and make Glory Day a reality!

HOPE DEBATERS CLASH WITH ALMA Hope Wins Second Place In Western Triangular Debating Circle by Defeating Alma By a Two To One Decision

Much Spirit Shown In Argument and Rebuttal

Friday evening, Feb. 23, one of Hope's debating teams, composed of Simon Heemstra, J e r r y De Vries and Harvey De Weerd upholding the affirmative side of the question, "Resolved that the United States, should immediately enter the League of Nations" met and outpointed the strong team of the negative from Alma, represented by Ronald Hnrris, Stuart P r a t t and Russell Wilson. Hope expected strong opposition and was not disappointed as the two to one decision shows. Alma's men came over with the sting of last year's defeat still rankling in their memories. They had planned to win —but in vain. Alma had three men who understood the question and who earnestly endeavored to convince the audience and judges that their arguments were sound and true. They were very pleasing in both manner and appearance. Our men acquitted themselves well in both constructive argument and rebuttal. Heemstra, in opening the debate, outlined the question in a concise and forceful manner. His points of contention were well taken. De Vries, as second speaker in the affirmative and as last speaker in the rebuttal, carred the part of the debate successfully. De Weerd was before us, not only to convince but also to please. He upset his opponents and caused the audience to have attentive ears, by his harmless sarcasm and ready wit. His arguments were strong and clear cut. The judges of the„ debate were Mr. (Hawley of Zeeland, Mr. Ponity of Allegan, and Mr. Weis of Kalamazoo. • Prof. Egbert Winter, head of the department of Education, acted as chairman of the evening. Our men are much encouraged and now feel t h a t the weeks of hard work they have put in have not been spent uselessly. . The attendance was good but it should have been better. Let's not forget our ^debaters and orators. Give them the support they deserve. Hope has always held high its banner of literary prowers, shall we let it be lowered?—By no means!

S the way a JOHN HANCOCK salesman described his work. He is a college graduate and in five years has put himself at the very top of his % business. . He never yet has called upon a prospect without a previous appointment. The best life insurance salesmen today work on that plan, making it a bust' ness of dignity, such as any worthy and ambitious college graduate can find satisfying to his mental needs, and highly remunerative as well. The man above quoted is the John Hancocks youngest general agent. This shows what college raduates of the right type can do in this business, ow they can build up earning power and at the same time provide for an accumulated competence for the years to come. Graduation is a vital period in your life and you are liable to hold to the business you start in. It would be well before making a definite decision to inquire into life insurance as a career.

Oyez! Oyez! The good ship Delphi of the G r e a t Anchored Fleet set sail on S a t u r d a y n^ght, Februa r y the seventeenth, f r o m port Voorhees. Due to cloudless skies, wellcharted seas, and facilitated crosscontinent tours, the p a r t y travelled well. The trip w a s personally conducted, and the plentitude of lifesavers dispatched all f e a r s . ' No o t h e r short cruise ever offered so much in variety, interest, and inV cluded features. The minute the gang-plank was raised, we steamed f o r t h f r o m the harbor, pledging allegiance, whatever came, to our flag and our count r y . Soon we heard the sirens of Hawaii f r o m a distance, and it was only the singing of our own crew in "Wake, Miss Lindy", t h a t saved us f r o m delay there to steer a course due west to India, where votaries worshipped and priests chanted their way to a b e t t e r land. Then on to Spain, the land of the serenade we went, then back t o Palestine where a t a well .in the burning sands Rebecca d r e w w a t e r , and date palms lent h e r shade; then to China, where S u k i Tong made tea while incense burned and gongs resounded. Then oh! f o r a hand to carve Grecian friezes, we thot. Oh f o r a Highland laddie t o roam with, and the good old Highland Fling. Cleopatra, f r o m her Egyptian throne sent her minions of sugarcoated niggers to keep us company. The N e t h e i l a n d s where the windmills went round and round and round, where tulips were blooming in gardens f o r two, sent us peppermints. r Then the paddles of our ship splashed and splurged again and the Venetian Love Song drew us to the land where Juliet let fall a rose f o r her Romeo. Then "Home a g a i n ! Home a g a i n ! Home again", we cried and the beams of the torch of the Statue of Liberty shone over the waves and beckoned us back to the U. S. A. American products, served in an American way. looked t e m p t i n g to the world-worn travellers. We lingered to exchange reminiscences and to discuss impressions. We were glad the ship w a s safely anchored in home w a t e r s . We were pleased with our new acquaintances, and we expressed our desire of continuing i those acquaintances on the other : side of the g a n g plank, outside of the S. S. Delphi perhaps, but certainly in the g r e a t e r interest of the Great Anchored Fleet.
