Hope College Expansion Drive Proposes Three New Buildings According to latest reports, details of the Hope College expansion campaign are shaping up toward an early launching. Mr. Marvin C. Lindemann and Mr. Willard Wichers, two Hope Alumni, are presently engaged in planning and organizing the big million-dollar project. However, there are many problems to be ironed out before the drive can be initiated. Questions such as, what will be included in the expansion and where will these new units be located, are typical of those which must be answered before the drive gets underway. A suggested plan is t h a t there should be three new buildings. Of On March 15, at 8:30 P.M., the primary interest, perhaps, is the Hope College orchestra will present proposed new gymnasium.

Editorials So Proudly We Hail As the notes of the "Star Spangled Banner," our country's national anthem, float through the air, all murmurs cease and men stand silently and reverently to show their respect to the emblem of their beloved country. This has become the accepted practice, and those who don't follow it are many times looked down upon by others as being disrespectful. Our Alma Mater hymn is to our college what the national anthem is to our country. Isn't it therefore entitled to the same display of respect? Don't we wish to show our loyalty to our school as well as to our country? This is directed generally to the grandstand spectators who are at fault, but more specifically to the members of the team who continue to practice during the singing of the hymn. The action going on disturbs the accompanying silence that should prevail when the hymn is being sung. The few minutes this takes shouldn't be too much of an interruption to the practice. And how about you team members participating in the singing too? Remember, the whole school is backing you so why not show that you are backing the school? Of course, we realize that our team is not the only one at fault. Our visiting teams are also. Couldn't they be asked to cooperate and cease their practice also? And maybe it would be a good idea if we were to do the same when visiting other schools. This isn't meant to single out and criticize our team members, but mainly to offer a suggestion whereby we might all show that ours is a school from which so proudly we hail and to which we owe our respect and loyalty. The basketball season is at a close now, but maybe we can keep this in mind anyway for future use. How about it? — J. B.

Maybe it was Dear Mr. Editor: Luke 23:34: " F a t h e r , forgive our lack of cooperation which them, for they know not what they forced vaudeville into submissionIf so, TV is beating our g a m e ! do." Down through the corridor of time came these words of Christ, and with this quotation has come various interpretations of it. Some individuals deem it necessary to use it when they are at a loss for an appropriate answer to a remark that they feel is aimed at them. Others use them to hide behind f o r they feel that they have been prejudiced against. By telling such unfound prejudices they have no better weapon to use than this quotation. Now by no means do 1 conclude t h a t these two methods of interpretation are the only ones we shall find, if we a r e looking f o r such protective mechanism, on the contrary, there are as many "personal" i n t e r p r e t a t i o n s as there are persecuted, "prejudiced a g a i n s t " individuals in society. J u s t for one moment let us look at what Jesus Christ felt and meant when he uttered these words f r o m the cross on Calvary. Halley's commentary on it is as follows: " F a t h e r , forgive them; for they know not what they do," as they nailed him to the cross. It is hard for us to control our a n g e r even as we read about it, (now note the following) "How much more for him. But he was absolutely without resentment, amazing self-control!" Christ at the time of his u t t e r ance of these words was without resentment and he was so contained within himself t h a t he had no feelings of malice towards any of his executioners. How fitting then t h a t he should use such wordsWhen then was it fitting for him to ask God f o r forgiveness of these people for what they were doing to him, and why is it a " s h a m " and a mockery of the cross f o r us to t u r n to this sacred utterance in a time of personal resentment and intellectual e m p t y n e s s ? W h y ? The answer is a simple one found within the very same writings that this quotation comes from. Jesus Christ is and was the Son of God, born to die f o r our sins and he himself has been without sin. On the other hand we a r e born in sin, with sin, and into a world of sin. Now, if we are born with sin how can we be without resentment when we feel as we sometimes do ? By feeling and having r e s e n t m e n t for what others say and do against us then we are not justified in asking God to forgive others f o r what they are doing to us, for how can we be certain t h a t they a r e resentful toward us and not resentful toward the ideas and ideologies t h a t we hold to. If, as t h e Bible so aptly puts it, we would even hope to be able to make use of the quotation t h a t this paper is an a r g u m e n t for, we must first right ourselves with God and in doing so we must first right ourselves with our own eye. Then and then only can we be justified in asking God to forgive others f o r the harm t h a t we believe they have done to us. F i r s t though, comes t h e m a j o r f e a t of removing t h e m o t e f r o m our own eye, and this in my humble opinion is a m a j o r f e a t t h a t will last a life-time f o r t h e diligent Christian. Sincerely, Michael Romano

And now, boys and girls, we shall continue with our poll. " W h a t is the current trend in dance band music on our c a m p u s ? " Who can say. As f a r as I know, we have none. We do have a favorite corn band? or a favorite vocalist? The answer, my dear pollsters, is one huge unequivocal " N o ! " Nor do we have any name bands at our nonexistent senior proms or J Hops. For this lack of interest, we are told, we should be ashamed. All I can ask is "Why should we b e ? " We're happy in our ignorance of America's " g r e a t contribution to the world of music." Why, may 1 ask, is everyone so concerned about national trends, universal opinions, etc.? Music is a personal thing and if a certain segment of the musical population of America cares to disagree with national opinions on the popularity of jazz in American culture, then it's their privilege to do so. What's more, they get along very well in their ignorance and hardly even miss it. At least, this segment is happy and we've heard no complaints f r o m any neighboring quarters, on the lack of jazz at Hope College. Until we do, we shall sail along on our peaceful way oblivious to the damage we're doing to musical America's "national trends." Speaking of complaints, we've heard t h a t some people do not quite approve of our review of Mr. Kooiker's concert. To these few complainants, we have but one thing to say. We certainly meant no disrespect for either Mr. Kooiker or the composers included in his repertoire. We warned our readers a t the beginning of the article t h a t it was not to be a technical masterpiece but merely a personal review of a concert which we enjoyed, very much indeed. We assure any who may have felt t h a t insults were inferred or a depth of musical knowledge was lacking t h a t in the f o r mer complaint, nothing could have been f a r t h e r f r o m our minds. As f o r the latter, we are only too clearly a w a r e of our technical level in reference to musical terms, interpretations, etc. We a r e on the lowest level possible — and if our readers will remember, we told them so in our very first p a r a g r a p h of the review. Nuff said about that, we feel.

Have you had a queer feeling lately t h a t you are being followed? Has someone been looking f o r you? If these are two things t h a t you have noticed recently, then undoubtedly Uncle Sam has his eyes on you along with a million or so other young men. As we sit a t our desks studying, at our bull sessions gossiping, and in our class rooms listening, the one thought always in our minds is military training. Unquestionably, the f a m i l i a r form of Uncle Sam is peering over our shoulders watching us. This viligance tends to make some quite r e s t l e s s , but others somewhat indifferent. Whatever the effect it has on us we should remain level headed at all times and not let group hysteria affect our actions and thinking. Although there is not much we as individuals can do about the situation, there is one f a c t o r t h a t is most important. This f a c t o r is

thinking clearly and objectively. We will be f a r b e t t e r off if we make the best of the problem. The first question t h a t arises in the mind is just how can a person make the best of a m a t t e r such as this — one t h a t is planned f o r us where we have no choice. Why should we even do thinking of our own when it is already done for u s ? In this kind of reasoning lies the defeat of the individual. J u s t because the f u t u r e a p p e a r s to be hopeless does not mean t h a t we as college students should not continue to be the right minded persons that we have been trained for and t h a t we should be constantly training for. We must maintain our scholastic efforts; we must maintain our character development with continued participation in extra-curricular activities; and finally we must above all approach the present dilemma with m a t u r e thinking.

We are reminded of a few conversations heard about campus recently. They ran as follows: The first concerned two fellows, one of whom was one of the better known athletes on campus. The first fellow just asked, "What is the secret of your success?" "That's easy," replied the second. "No smoking, no drinking, and asleep by 8:45." "That ought to be easy," countered the first. "In your classroom by 8:30, and asleep by 8:45!" The second w a s overheard later the same day. This time the two participants were coeds from the old Alma Mater. The first had just asked f o r an opinion. "Well, I can't speak for Ray, but my idea of a good nest egg is $2.20." "Two dollars and twenty c e n t s ? " "Yup, two dollars for the license, and 20 cents c a r f a r e to go out and get it!" And if someone calls you worthless, don't let it bother you. J u s t remember t h a t even the best family tree has some deadwood. Or in army lingo, all the gold bricks aren't buried at Fort Knox. In closing, just one additional bit of advice to put us on the road to happiness. "Some people get ahead simply by minding their own business, but of course, in t h a t field there is very little competition." "Keith S t u a r t "

These comments were to the effect that it was indeed unfortunate that our Chapel, used all during the week, is empty on the one day which is specially set aside for religious observance. Now we do not feel that the college should, or has a right to, draw students away from our local churches, for these institutions exist primarily for the purpose of ministering to the spiritual needs of their people, and surely have done everything possible to make college students at home in their services. In addition, they present an opporFINE DEPARTMENT STORE tunity f o r students to worship with townspeople, and thus strengthen our ties with them, as well as providing opportunity f o r additional service in such fields as choirs and young people's work.

The integration of these two would provide students with the chance f o r both worship and service in organized churches in the morning and HOLLAND'S STORE HOME afternoons, and a service aimed a t their own spiritual needs and desires in the evening. Perhaps this situation might bear some investigation OF FAMOUS NATIONAL and action by the responsible authorities.

English Majors Will See 'Madwoman of Chaillot'

The English Majors Club which held their monthly meeting Monday evening, February 19, decided on the first week in March to see the Grand Rapids Civic Players present "The Madwoman of Chaillot."

MARCHING BLACKS by Dr Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Dr. Powell, as newly elected member of the House of Representatives and as head of the largest Negro church in New York City, is one of the most influential Negro leaders in this country. Shunning the pussy-footing appeasement approach, Dr. Powell here outlines a realistic program that, if followed, will result in a gain for the Negro and f o r the nation at large.

Listening Room Ready For Use A corner of room 10 in the Chapel is now being used f o r record listening, according to Miss Holleman, Assistant Professor in the Music Department. The records are shelved in this room and thus are easily available. The records are in charge of two students who are present at hours during the afternoon and evening. A reserve list f o r which students may sign up to hear a specific record, at a specific time, is posted on the bulletin board in the Chapel basement. It is hoped that many students will take this opportunity to study the great works in music. Many new records have been added to the College record library this year. Among them are: six Concert! Grossi by Handel, twelve Preludes and Fugues from the Well-Tempered Clavichord by Bach, the Italian Symphony by Mendelssohn, Concerto for Orchestra by Bartok, Over the Hills and F a r Away by Delius. The difficult task of cataloguing all the records has recently been completed by Mr. Davis, instructor in the Music Department.

The miniaturists, who decorated the early manuscripts, psalm books and prayer books, took their models from life so they have given us documentary evidence of former manners and occupations. The most precious of these manuscripts is he "Tres Riches Herues," the Due de Berry being one of the brothers of King Charles V.

JffcaiernttfcB EMERSONIAN Next week one of the high spots of the academic year is to occur when the All-College Sing (well, almost all) is presented. This reporter, ailing f o r inspiration as usual, has taken the liberty to interview some of the more prominent personalities on campus connectcd with this event: "I say, Phil (Feenstra, representing the executive phase of its presentation), have all arrangements been completed or have they n o t ? " "Yes." " U h - w e l l , thanks." He always was verbose. Ah, there's Dan Hager, boy monotone. "Say, Dan—" "Take off. You shoulda stood in bed." You know, I don't think he loves me any more. Well, here's Jim Visscher, boy soprano. "How's your voice, J i m ? " "Vocal." "How unique." Don (Deleted) De Young is noted as an intellectual. "How's yours, (Deleted)?" " H u h ? - o h - f e r da sparrows." For soul-searing pathos, none of these expressive replies can match that of Director Paul Vander Woude, who in considering the possibilities of our golden-throated aggregation said, simply and sincerely: " *



Special Item: Scene I — The affection which we all entertain for our Northern neighbors is indeed unique. Moved by genuine compassion f o r the underprivileged, we felt ourselves morally obligated, if not to afford some sort of positive instruction in the a r t of interior decoration, a necessary concomitant of comfortable living, at least to provide in some small way f o r the highly salubrious living conditions which we, in deep sympathy, feel even they should be permitted to enjoy. Ah, the shambles that greeted our innocently unsuspecting eyes (exclamation point) but what a pleasantly g r a t i f y i n g t r a n s f o r m a t i o n existed at our departure. Fraternal protestations of appreciation were graciously received. It was a pleasant exchange of compliments. ( F o r Scene - II, see Fraternal column.) o ARCADIAN On Friday evening, February 16th, the Arcadians gathered with the Sibyllines for our annual joint meeting. A detailed account of this meeting may be found elsewhere on this page, but we would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Sibs, for one of the most enjoyable evenings we've had in a long time. It was truly a great meeting and already we are looking forward to next year's. The Arcadian F r a t e r n i t y is happy to announce t h a t f o u r new pledges have entered our ranks as a result of second semester bidding. We are happy and proud to welcome J e r r y Elenbaas, Glenn Hine, Jack Kalee and Lewis Timmer. May these men uphold the high ideals of Chi Phi Sigma — service, wisdom, and love — continuing steadfast in the paths of those who have gone before us. On Friday evening, February 23rd, the Arkies very successfully did their share in raising money f o r the devastated libraries of the world by sponsoring "Mad Splatt e r " at the annual Penny Carnival. Thanks go to chairman Bob Benson and his able committee consisting of Hans Veening, Dick Weisiger, "Curly" Van Heest, and Roy Adelberg. Most of our time in the last two weeks and just about all of our time in the coming week has been and will be spent in preparing f o r the All-College Sing, an event we are all looking f o r w a r d to.

Cosmos appreciated the fine patronage given them. Also, a word of praise goes to Mary Olert f o r making the carnival a real success. Serving on the Cosmo delegation, were Warren Exo, chairman. Norm Thompson, Dave Haas, and George Hoekstra. A S o r o s i s - C o s m o p o l i t a n joint meeting occupied the limelight on Friday evening, Feb. 16. Sorosites were hosts for the evening, as a fascinating meeting, under the theme of "Playing Cards," was presented. A fine "shuffle" of all attending, started the meeting off in true style. Presidents Vyverberg and Karstan welcomed Cosmos and Sorosites r e s p e c t i v e l y . Cosmo Schipper offered prayer. The Cosmo parlor was soon teeming with harmony as Bob Stoppels led the assembly of mixed voices with enthusiasm. The serious presentation f o r the evening was under the care of Cosmos Bill Helder and Dale De Witt. Their topic concerned the history and evolution of playing cards. Special music was rendered by Sorosite Dot Ten Brink and Cosmo Jack Boeskool who turned in an unchallengable rendition of "Sweethearts". Humor f o r the evening was given by Sorosites Boersma and Roelofs. In one of the best master-critic reports heard by Cosmos this year, Sorosite Eunice Mayo paid favorable comments to the evening proceedings, via poetry. Refreshments climaxed the evening's entertainment.

The interfraternity ping pong tournament has come to a sudden halt a t the disappearance of the master score-card in the Van Raalte lounge. Vain and immediate attempts are being made to resume the schedule where it was left off. Therefore, each participant, whether eliminated or not, has been asked to contact his f r a ternity's council representative in order to find out who the leaders in the tournament were and exactly what the results of the matches were.

Last Thursday the members of Fraternal paid one of their periodic visits to the home of their dear friends, the Emersonians. The F r a t e r s took the refreshments which they distirbuted on the Emersonian porch, along with various and sundry g i f t s . It was a gala event, set off by fireworks, but before the Emmie hospitality could be fully extended, the sociability was interrupted by intruders who caused the Fraternal men much inconvenience and expenditure of energy before the social program of the evening was completed. The only consolation f o r the interruption in the Fraternal-Emersonian social event was the pleasure which the women on campus receive as a result of the actions of the intruders.

The Knickerbocker meeting of F e b r u a r y 22 was opened a t 7:45 by President Fieldhouse. The Knicks payed tribute to one of the nation's founders as George Washington was the theme of their meeting. Bill Kiskin opened the meeting with devotions. Knickerbocker Mike Romano took a leave of absence from the dark room to present the serious paper on George Washington. The paper was a masterful job as it presented some of the early more colorful p a r t s of Washington's life. Howard Poll had the humor paper and did Where the usual fine job. The meeting was then drawn to a close. The Knicks then proceeded to get to the most important task, t h a t of preparing f o r the all college sing.

The evening was especially eventful f o r our President Nancy Vyverberg and Mary Buttles who became engaged during and before the party. Our congratulations, best of luck, and all the happiness in the world to you both! It w a s a wonderful, wonderful party, and our thanks go first to Cathy Wines the general chairman, and second to all the committee chairman. Our thanks also is extended to the Chaperones, Mr. and Mrs. Haverkamp, Mr. and Mrs. Geerlings, and Mr. and Mrs. Vanderham. It was a pleasure to have you as guests of Sorosis. "All Hands on Deck," f o r the Cosmo-Sorosis joint meeting which was held at the beautiful Cosmo House. Cosmo President Karsten gave u s a hearty well-come and Cosmo Schipper led us in devotions. Cosmo Stopples stepped up to direct us in some singing which was followed by a very interesting serious paper on the history of playing cards. Sorosite Ten Brink and Cosmo Boeskool joined voices and favored us with a beautiful duet. Sorosites Boersma and Roelofs had the humor paper which gave u s quite a few chuckles. Ref r e s h m e n t s were then served, and the meeting was dismissed.

DELTA PHI On the night of February 10, Delphis and their escorts journeyed to the Morton House to enjoy a "Holiday f o r Hearts." The Holiday spirit was soon felt by all as we enjoyed a marvelous turkey dinner with all the trimmings. When this was completed and every hungry heart was satisfied, a hearty welcome was extended to all by our President, Luella Rozeboom. Maxine Mulder then told us of her holiday heartache and it was one which could be both a heartache and a headache to the fellows at this time, but it didn't seem to affect them as such and Max did give them some good advice about what to expect when Uncle Sam extends his "greetings." Heartistry in Rhythm, a musical comedy, written by Barb Bruins, was then presented in pantomime as Marge Dykema narrated the heart-history of a girl f r o m the time her heart belonged to Daddy until it became the possession of Delta Phi. Music f o r the evening was f u r nished by Bob Albers and his band and the Hope College Men's Glee Club which was a pleasant and pleasing surprise to all — thanks, fellows. There were little things which made our party distinctive, such as the mop and pail atmosphere of the dining room, the big beautiful eyes of June Dunster, the Little F a t Poncho and the originality in the costumes of our escorts. A Conga line took us on a tour of the hotel but we all got back in time to see the Charleston done by Helena Gill and Roy Lumsden. Ail these and other things made our holiday very successful and praises go to Ruthie Slotsema and all the committees f o r an excellent job. Many thanks to our chaperones f o r the evening, Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Vanderbush and Mr. and Mrs. Ken Weller. We were happy to have them with us. F e b r u a r y 17 found us back in the Delphi room among bowling balls and pins. The directions f o r life's g a m e were given by Betty Cross. The first strike was made by Carol Van Zoeren as she gave us the history of the sport.

CALVIN GAME IN GR TONITE Cagers Score Victories Over Three MIAA Foes The Hope College cagers wind up their season tonight with an important game against Calvin to be played in the Civic Auditorium in Grand Rapids. Earlier the Dutch whipped the Knights to intensify the traditional rivalry between the two schools. Playing their last five games against conference foes, Hope College's fighting Dutchmen improved their cage precentage by whipping three opponents, Alma, Hillsdale, and Kalamazoo, losing only to Adrian by a single point and to Albion in a high-scoring tilt. Jubilant over their thumping of the rival Calvin Knights two days earlier, the Dutch lost a heartbreaking contest against Adrian on the latter's floor February 10, when the Bulldogs threw in a bucket with 20 seconds to go in the game and pulled out a 58-57 victory. The visitors had compiled an imposing 3021 half-time lead which they saw gradually slip away until the hosts tied up the count in the last minutes, finally to dump in the winning basket with seconds left. Spearheading the Adrian attack was Center Bud Bennett with 20 points. The cold Hope team was led by Junior Bremer's 14. D E F E A T ALMA Returning home, the cagers entertained Alma February 13 and trounced them in a low-scoring defensive game, 54-46. The Scots were unable to penetrate the tight Hope defensive pattern but with the Hope shooters still cold, stayed close, with the first half closing in a 23-23 deadlock. The Dutchmen began to find the range a f t e r the intermission, however, during the waning minutes of the game had the victory sewed up. Guard Chuck Saxton led f o r the Scots' floor play and also dumped in 16 points f o r high individual honors. Cocky Bill Healey, who was high-point man in the first meeting between the two schools, was effectively bottled up by Bud Vande Wege and limited to 4 points. Bremer fired in 14 for the Hope cause. On the Armory floor February 17 the Hillsdale cage squad, a f t e r the first few minutes of play, threatened to make a repetition of their earlier walk-away win when thoy piled up a quick 8-2 lead over the Dutchmen, who were without the services of flu-stricken center Jun Bremer.

Playing with the Holland American Legion five earlier this year, Schrotenboer in one g a m e rolled up 45 points. VISSER GETS 23 A f t e r the half-time break Freshman Center Bob Visser, who started the game in Bremer's place, combined jump-shots and tip-ins to take up the slack left by Bremer's absence. Still outclassing the visitors the Dutch pulled away to the 12-point victory. Visser totaled 23 for the night to fill in competently for Bremer.

During the past week we have noticed a few track enthusiasts working out around Hope's muddy athletic field. This display of enthusiasm might be an indication of an improvement in the 1951 track team. The '50 squad was not too impressive in their fifth place MIAA position. However, most of last year's points were made by sophs or frosh and these men should form the core of an improved squad.

At the Hope-Alma game J a n u a r y 13, Hope fans were really showered with entertainment. Not only did Hope beat a team which had been on top of the league, but during the half time intermission a Hope tumbling squad put on an interesting performance. This is the first bit of entertainment of this type that we have witnessed since coming to Hope. Why couldn't Hope f a n s be entertained like this between the halves of every home g a m e ? Other schools enjoy these programs. Kalamazoo College always has some type of entertainment. We suggest that the proper authorities look into a program like this f o r next year's home games. Tennis, volleyball, ping pong, boxing, or fencing exhibitions could be held. The marching band provides entertainment f o r all football games; maybe the pep band could work up a couple of acts for basketball games. Another suggestion: if a home game is to be played in March with Adrian, why not hold the finals of the i n t e r f r a t ping pong tournament during half time. » • •

Was it basketball? Was it officiating? We're r e f e r r i n g to the recent Emmie-Frater " A " league basketball (and we use the term loosely) game. As a basketball game it was good football. That f r a y was a perfect example of how a game can get out of hand. The spirits on both teams were high; the crowd displayed extreme enthusiasm. The game got out of control in the first f e w minutes of the game and from then on Carnegie gym was a bedlam. The officials (and we use this term loosely) could do nothing right in the eyes of the fans, coaches, or players. The handling of this g a m e was the poorest exhibition of officiating in a season noted f o r a lack of brilliant whistle blowing. However, you can't say the " r e f s " were unfair, they were as lousy for one team as the other. No team can be too exuberant in their joy over victory in a game like this.
