These affairs would be slated for various class periods during the day.

E a c h Hope student would b e assessed $10 toward expenses of t h e events. The E x e c u t i v e C o m m i t t e e also approved the " 3 - 2 Engineeaing P r o g r a m , " a cooperative plan between Hope and the University of Michigan which will m a k e possible the a t t a i n m e n t of both a B.A. and a B.S. d e g r e e f r o m the two schools a f t e r three y e a r s of liberal study at Hope and t w o y e a r s of engineering courses at U. of M.

The proposal, which r a i s e s the scale c-piqr:e<; f o r the r a n k s of professors and associate p r o f e s s o r s , was passed by the Executive Committee. The new life i n s u r a n c e proposal would allow faculty p a r t i c i p a n t s to establish an equity which theycan retain if thay leave the college before r e t i r e m e n t age. The plan would be m a n d a t o r y for all faculty and a d m i n i s t r a t i v e personnel, who would contribute five per cent of t h e i r salaries to the endowm e n t . The plan was constructed

upon the r e c o m m e n d a t i o n of the T e a c h e r s I n s u r a n c e and Annuity Assn. The Alumni A s s n .

By Tom Hildebrandt In a c c o r d a n c e with the p r o m i s e of the president J i m Klein to " t a k e an active p a r t in c a m p u s a f f a i r s . " the IFC has d r a w n up a new plan for t h e regulation of f r a t a r n i t y pledging periods.

six weeks. 'Nmv the period lasts f r o m the distribution of bids to the end of the s e m e s t e r . ) During this t i m e , the pledge would be required to work for the f r a t e r n i t y f o r a m a x i m u m of t h r e e hours per week.

U n d e r the new p r o p o s a l , which goes before the student Life Comm i t t e e today, is an at empt to " a c q u a i n t the pledge with the tradi ion of the f r a t e r n i t y , and yet e l i m i n a t e the incidents undesirable to both the f r a t e r n i t y and he adminis'ration," according to KJein. He said, however, in o r d e r to allow ihe individual f r a t e r n i t y ' s tradition to be expressed. "Individual fraternity responsibility will be i m p o r t a n t . "

Second, the informal initiation would last for a total of 24 h o u r s , which would be broken up into any n u m b e r of shor er periods. This, in contrast to t h e p r e s e n t s y s t e m , would be during t h e seme s t e r itself, ins ead of b e t w e e n s e m e s t e r s . This would e l i m i n a t e t h e inconvenience of staying on c a m p u s during the vacations.

Basically the plan involves two m a i o r changes. F i r s t , t h e over-all pledging period would be cut t o

One f e a t u r e of the p r e s e n t sys t e m that will be retained is the r e s t r a i n t on " h a r a s s m e n t " of pledges. However, the present plan will seek to define the t e r m so that responsible j u d g m e n t can be m a d e on

questionable incidents. It is h o p e d t h a t t r a d i t i o n can be given room within t h e bounds of the definition and still p r o t e c t the pledge. This has been a p r o b l e m which both t h e a d m i n i s t r a t i o n and IFC would like to solve. A m a j o r criticism of the IFC regulation of pledging h a s been the ineffectiveness of its e n f o r c e m e n t of its own rules. It should be noted that this plan was, in effect, w r i t t e n by all the f r a t e r n i t i e s , and was not simply an undesirable c o m p r o m i s e . Each fra ernity s u b m i t t e d , t o begin the p r e s e n t study, a plan it considered workable. In m a n y cases the resident advisors w e r e consulted. The council t h e n m a d e changes, when needed, according to the plans submi ted by t h e m e m b e r s . It is t h e r e f o r e a synthesis of fraternity ideas.

predicament. You had schemed and planned for weeks to trap Ralph and now that you had caught him, you didn't even know why. Was it because you had a strong psychological need of smoking? It couldn't be—after all that's what

your Linus blanket was for and that's why you sucked your thumb. Was it because you liked having those two identifying little holes in every blouse and sweater you owned? Did you enjoy being thrown into the shower every night for two weeks by your supposed friends? (Some of whom you are sure have sadistic tendencies because they always pick a time to throw you in the shower when you have just had your hair done or are on your way to church.) Did you just read an interesting article in the " R e a d e r s Digest" that said any girl over 18 who is not pinned or engaged m u s t be exhibiting the s y m p t o m s of advanced cretinism? Was it because a friend had suggested that you give up playing the Ivory Soap bit—even though you didn't mind being 99 and 44/100 per cent pure? Suddenly it dawned on you, you got pinned b e c a u s e you actually liked Ralph. After all it's not every guy who is cute, owns a J a g u a r , h a s a four point, is a BMOC and spent his last s e m e s t e r in Yugoslavia. (Next year he's igoing to Cuba for an indefinite visit.) As a m a t t e r of fact, he fulfils all the r e q u i r e m e n t s of a perfect pin-mate.

You got pinned because being pinned is almost like being engaged which is almost like being married which is almost like being in heaven! Congratulations, angel!

Editor's note: This y e a r pinnings have been very prominent among the fraternities. The Emmies have had 14 pinnings this year to lead in the activity. The Arkies have pinned nine, Fraters nine. Cosmos five and the Knicks five. By Pat Canfield The Ouija Board had been predicting it for weeks. Finally it happened. You ran upstairs to your room and breathlessly announced to your roommate, "I got p i n n e d ! " Your r o o m m a t e shrugged complacently and after removing her four-day accumulation of DoubleBubble said. "Gee, I didn't know the wrestling team had recruited you." You almost punched h e r in the mouth but she had replaced the gum wad and you didn't want to get that sticky pink stuff all over your fist. Calmly, you shouted, " T h a t ' s not what I m e a n , stupid, Ralph gave me his f r a t e r n i t y pin," and you pulled open your coat to reveal a small golden object fixed lopsidedly to your sweatshirt. Your r o o m m a t e chewed reflectively and then asked. " W h y ? " "WHAT DO YOU MEAN, WHY?" you sputtered indignantly, "you know—uh—I mean—uh—" You hated to admit it but she had you. You actually did not know why yo*1 got pinned. And a f t e r you had worked so h a r d to get Ralph, too! You had spent weeks planning s t r a t a g e m s with your best friends. Tripping him up the steps in V a f ^ H a a l t e three times so he'd notice you, then the incessant borrowing and changing of clothes so that you'd always look " y u m m y good" whenever you saw him. After he had finally, started asking you out, you had to s t a r t subscribing to Playboy, Sports Illustrated and Popular Mechanics to find out everything he w a s interested in so you could e n g a g e him in stimulating conversations. You did everything with him, f r o m helping him file down the points in his J a g u a r to escorting him to library, to watching him derive equations. And always with a big mile.

Pre-Sem Student Is Drafted

V DEAN'S TEA—Last Tuesday evening the annual Dean's List Tea was held in the lounge of Durfee Hall. Almost one third of the student body achieved a 3-point grade average first semester and was appointed to the Dean's list.

Four On-campus Services Initiated for Hope During Lent A series of four Sunday morning worship services •will be held for the college students on c a m p u s beginning next Sunday at 10:45 a.m. Dr. Arthur Jentz will initiate the series of services by preaching in Mulder Chapel of Western Seminary next Sunday morning. The following two services, slated for March 13 and 20, will be led by Chaplain William Hillegoncte. Dr. H e r m a n Ridder, president of Western Theoogical Seminary will lead

the final service March 27. Commenting on the on-campus Sunday services, Rev. Hillegonds stated, "It m u s t be clearly said that this in no way encourages those of you who worship r e g u l a r l y in one of Holland's churches to alter this practice. This series of lenten services is intended for those who have not m a d e a p r a c t i c e of worshipping on Sund a y or who feel that a c a m p u s service of worship would be helpful."

Supervised Study Raises Freshman Grade-Points This year, for the second y e a r , a f r e s h m a n study p r o g r a m h a s been initiated. Its purpose is to "provide a supervised study p r o g r a m for f r e s h m e n whose a c a d e m i c adj u s t m e n t to the college could imp r o v e , " according to Dean of Men, T h o m a s Carey. The decision to re-introduce the Monday through Wednesday 79 p.m. sessions was m a d e by Mr. C a r e y and the Dean of Women, Mrs. Isla Van E e n e n a a m , on the basis of the favorable results of last y e a r ' s similar p r o g r a m . F o r m e r Dean of Students, Dr. J a m e s Harvey, in a study of the f r e s h m e n participating last year, discovered that those who attended regularly experienced an overall i m p r o v e m e n t in their gradepoint average.

The average grade-point of those attending regularly increased f r o m 1.685 at mid-term to 2.32 at finals with indivdual cases varying. Those not attending regularly experienced little i m p r o v e m e n t : 1.8 to 1.88. Fifty-one f r e s h m a n s t u d e n t s w h o s e grade-points were below 1.6 a r e required to attend two of three of the weekly sessions. Thirty-five upperclassmen give two hours a week to supervise and tutor students in a particular field of study.

The increasing p r e s s u r e on college m e n exerted by the step-up in d r a f t quotas w a s felt directly on the Hope c a m p u s last week for the first time. Senior Michael Laughlin was notified to report f o r induction into t h e a r m y on March 15. Laughlin is currently enrolled p a r t - t i m e at Hope to fulfill his last six-credit hour requirements for graduation. He is planning to enter the ministry and has been preenrolled at Western Theological S e m i n a r y for some time. A history m a j o r with a B average, Laughlin is engaged to be m a r r i e d in April. Since October, when Laughlin was re-classified by the d r a f t board as I-A, despite his status as a fullt i m e student, the administrations of both Hope and Western have been engaged in a campaign to allow him to finish his education at Hope and go on to the s eminar y. Both schools wrote to the b o a r d explaining his status and t h a t thus he should not h a v e lost his d e f e r m e n t . An appeal to the board by Laughlin was turned down as were communications f r o m Hope and Western. The d r a f t board continued with the processing procedure, and on Dec. 27 he was instructed to report for his physical examination. Since the rejection of all pleas for continued d e f e r m e n t last week, P r e s i d e n t Ridder of Western and Chaplain Hillegonds of Hope h a v e personally intervened on his behalf. Dr. Ridder has provided for Laughlin's e n t r a n c e into the seminary next week as a part-time student with nine hours of courses. Hillegonds called the California d r a f t board long distance and sent a night wire to Laughlin's congressm a n , Representative Harold T. Johnson. Hillegonds views the position of the draft board as understandable. Laughlin c o m e s from a small town with relatively few eligible men to fill a rising d r a f t quota. Thus the iboard is forced to look to the colleges for draftees. During his sophomore y e a r , Laughlin left school to - w o r k in order to

meet college expenses. T h e d r a f t board contends that h e has had the normal four y e a r d e f r m e n t and is now eligible for the d r a f t . The S-2 status is also threatened by Laughlin's present status as a parttime student. Hillegonds questions whether the board will " a c c e p t p a r t t i m e enrollment in two schools as the equivalent of full t i m e enrollment in one." Hillegonds r e m a r k e d , "No one can be blamed for Laughlin's draft, the problem lies within the selective service system itself." Laughlin h a s no conscientious objection to the soldier role and feels that "it is something that has to be done; we m u s t honor our commitments in V i e t n a m . " He says his c a r e e r intentions have always been to enter t h e s e m i n a r y , complete his work there, and become a chaplain in the a r m e d forces, a fact of which his d r a f t board is aware.

Fraternity Folly T

H E F R A T E R N I T Y I N I T I A T I O N prograin for second semester was suddenly cancelled on April 15, 1964, by the Inter-Fraternity Council three days before its scheduled completion. T h e reason, to quote one administrator, was the occurance of "gross indignities to h u m a n beings." T h e shocking activities conducted by some fraternity men had resulted in the entire initiation being called to a halt. T h e IFC resolved to suspend all initiation procedures until a new policy could be drawn u p and presented to the Student Life Committee for approval.

K jM

Last year the IFC made a sincere a t t e m p t to outline a rigorous policy of enforcement which prevented the abuses that occured in 1%4. Unfortunately, despite promises by all fraternities to obey the new rules, one c a m p u s fraternity was charged with violating the regulations and the case was presented to the IFC. T h e vote was three to two for conviction, but the group's constitution required a fourto-one vote to invoke the p u n i s h m e n t . T h e accused fraternity and one other had voted no — on the premise that the offense /vas not serious e n o u g h to warrant the expressed punishment, loss of the next informal.

ii

F u r t h e r m o r e , two fraternities went, officially unrecognized in their abuse of the rules when they conducted informal initiation during the spring rather than the "five days before the fall semester." as explicitly stated in last year's regulations. We are still living in the shadow of these events. It would all be only interesting history except that the IFC is again revising its initiation policy and asking the Student Life Committee to approve the change. T h e newpolicy not only leaves standing the loose provisions which allowed for last year's misfortunes but has completely reversed the spirit of last year's policy to permit some of the activities which created the detestable situation in 1964.

I R S T , T O Q U O T E A N I F C spokesman, " T h e rules are a m b i g u o u s enough to allow a fraternity to d o almost anything." T h e new policy has left s t a n d i n g vague statements in opposition to "violation of the basic integrity of the initiate" and "harassment of the pledges at any time during the pledging period." Tragically humorous is the statement, "harassment is defined as the complete exhaustion of the pledge by means of repeated and extreme attacks on his physical make-up." W h a t is the difference between an "extreme" and non-extreme "attack on his physical make-up?" How do you tell when a pledge has arrived at the state of "complete exhaustion?" Or, perhaps more i m p o r t a n t , how d o you know when to stop so that he is not completely exhausted? \ asked a medical authority — an M.D. - j u s t what this term means. According to him. "Complete exhaustion is difficult to define. N o one knows the e n d u r a n c e of a person's cardiovascular system—how m u c h the heart will take. It is not definable. A layman is foolish to push anyone to that point because it is a dangerous area. It's fine with slaves, because you d o n ' t care whether they die or not. All it takes is one mistake —and there are many incidents such as this from fraternities on other campuses reported in medical journals." C o m p l e t e physical exhaustion is dangerous—and so is a policy which fails to deliniate the difference between " c o m p l e t e " and only partial exhaustion, which presumably is tolerated by the policy. Consider one other statement of vagueness which remains in the policy. In the list of results that need to be avoided, we read, "Interference with the academic growth of the initiate or the academic process of the institution." T h i s phrase is in the policy despite the fact that "pledge period starts when bids are accepted and shall last for six full school weeks exclusive of all official vacations," a period which includes the time of mid-term examinations.

S

ECONDLY, T H E POLICY REVERSES several specific points in last year's policy and instead of f o r b i d d i n g certain undesirable activities it expressly allows them. Following last year's fiasco, the IFC outlawed the following activities by including them in the definition of "harassment": "Calisthenics, rides, p a d d l i n g , burlap, wearing underwear or less, in d u c e m e n t of nausea and p a i n t i n g of pledges." T h i s year the IFC does an about-face and specifically allows the following activities by e x e m p t i n g them from the definition of harassment: " 1) wearing b u r l a p exclusive of the school day, 2) a reasonable a m o u n t of physical exercise (calisthenics—M.) and 3) any washable decoration not h a r m f u l to the skin (painting— Ed.)." All three of these things, p e r m i t t e d under the new policy, were outlawed last year. T h e r e can be no d o u b t that this reversal by the IFC would lead to more grotesque initiations. A later statement piously states that " n o inedible foods will be fed the pledges. N o food shall be forcibly fed to the pledge by h a n d . " But. according to present I F C president Jim Klein, this is not designed to outlaw "barf nights." Is this statement p u t in to say something m e a n i n g f u l or just to bluff the members of the Student Life C o m m i t t e e into t h i n k i n g that "barf nights" will be eliminated?

T

HIRD, T H E POLICY R E T A I N S the same weak e n f o r c e m e n t procedures as last year. " T h e president and two other members of the IFC have the prerogative (italics our - Ed.) of inspecting any fraternity's initiation program first-hand," stated last year's IFC President Bill Brauer. Rut. according to its letter to the anchor editor of March 19. 1965, the I F C itself doesn't seem to have m u c h faith in the policy program: "It is true that the inspection team could he an effective organization, b u t if you will take the time to read the council's statement on initiation you will find that 'the council recoenizes that carrying on a good informal initiation is a m a t t e r of judgment and the proper spirit, and that each fraternitv has the basic responsibilitv for m a i n t a i n i n g this spirit and j u d g m e n t . Rules and regulations of themselves are never adequate.' " Last year's examples of u n p u n i s h e d abuses should have proven the need for effective enforcement. Last year the fraternities proved that they are incapable of obeying all the regulations themselves and that there must be an effective policing program. It may be true that rules are not everything, b u t this does not excuse an organization from issuing rules it either cannot enforce or has no intention of enforcing. A n d we strongly believe that the IFC should come u p with a rigorous policing system, rather than placing what has shown to be unjustified faith in the individual fraternity.

T

HERE ARE W O R K A B L E A L T E R N A T I V E S to the proposed policy. For years H o p e fraternities have labored u n d e r the idea that sadism is essential to a m e a n i n g f u l initiation. W h y not eliminate the idea of a "hell n i g h t " completely and follow the lead of m a n v national fraternities bv having a " H e l p Week," which would benefit both the college and the communitv? Several administrators have suggested that "hell week activities could be renlaced with constructive work projects." T h i s would eliminate all the problems of vatrueness and enforcement with which the IFC has so far unsuccessfully struggled. If the m a t u r e men of Hope's fraternities still feel the need for a sadistic initiation program, the m i n i m u m need for the situation is thorough e n f o r c e m e n t of a ri^orouslv defined limitation on abuses. A committee for enforcement, i n c l u d i n g t h e Dean of Men and members a p p o i n t e d by t h e Student L i f e Committee, is essential for a m e a n i n g f u l policy. AT a very m i m i m u m , the responsibility of the Student Life C o m m i t t e e is to soundly reject the I F C proposal at their meeting this afternoon. T h e policy as it now stands is a series of vague statements coupled with allowances for more sadism a n d a farcical policing procedure.

'Herzog'Sees Modern Man's Conflict with Society and Self By Mary Hakken

S

aul Bellow's novel " H e r z o g , " p r e s e n t s a m o d e r n A m e r i c a n intellectual s t i a i n ing to r e l a t e himself to his m a s s society, his m a r r i a g e failures, his own intelligence and finally his own h u m a n i t y . As a middle-aged scholar and somet i m e s professor, Moses Herzog faces the imm e d i a t e humiliating crisis of the b r e a k u p of his second m a r r i a g e , a m a r r i a g e in which Herzog w a s the cuckold of his neurotic wife Madeleine and his best friend G e r s b a c h . Up to this point in his life, Herzog had thought that he could m a s t e r any situation which c a m e his way, but he h e r e finds himself f r a n t i c a l l y questioning all the f o r m e r decisions of his life, as they altogether a p p e a r to h a v e led to this final failure. Herzog c a n no longer teach or do res e a r c h , he is e m b i t t e r e d toward the m a s s society in which he struggles, and he h a s lost his basic sense of h u m a n dignity. This whole e x p e r i e n c e leaves h i m reduced to the s t a t e of m e n t a l torture at his own inade q u a c i e s and p r e v e n t s him f r o m seeking the liberation, independence, and creativity that h e wishes. Bellow's recent best-seller s t e m s out of the c u r r e n t crop of novels in which modern m a n f a c e s what critic Theodore Solotaroff calls the " c r i s i s of belief." Bellow specifically points to the growing pettiness of h u m a n life in the society of the m a s s m a c h i n e , the m o c k e r y of a "civilized" morality as opposed to his own Jewish background and he points to the f r a g m e n t a r y process of world progress. In this novel the psychological aspects of the t h e m e , revealed as the m a i n chara c t e r c a r r i e s on his struggle with his world, a r e given p a r t i c u l a r zest because they take the f o r m of letters which Herzog add r e s s e s to iNeitzsche, Adlai Stevenson, Kennedy, The New York Times, his ex-girlf r i e n d s and to God. In the letters Bellows

own University of Chicago wit comes into play as he toys realistically with P r e s i d e n t J o h n s o n ' s plan for new legislation, but also with such things as Atlantic Civilization editor P u l v e r and a t r a n s c e n d e n c e in the new Utopian history, and with m a n as the most peculiar animal of all in his exclaiming an idiot joy in existence. The i m p o r t a n c e of this device of letters is indicated by Bellow in the novel in that Herzog uses t h e m in both self-revelation and self-analysis and gradually as part of his rehabilitation.

It is at last to his h o m e in the country that Herzog goes to e v a l u a t e his failure and frustration and it is in this last e s c a p e into solitude that he eventually finds relief. His sensibility r e a c h e s a climax in seeing the beauly of the spruce trees which adorn his landscape and in seeing the horror of small birds t r a p p e d in the light fixture hanging over his " a b a n d o n e d m a r r i a g e b e d . " It is here that Herzog can stop writing letters and finally face life on the t e r m s of eating Silvercup b r e a d and canned beans.

T h r o u g h Herzog, Bellow begs in these l e t t e r s for a c l e a r e r e s t i m a t e of m a n ' s condition. Bellow m a d e the s a m e plea in the speech which he g a v e in a c c e p t a n c e of the National Book Award for this novel, b e c a u s e m o d e r n civilization is seen in both places as a m a s s society, " f r i g h t f u l , brutal, hostile to w h a t e v e r is pure in the h u m a n spirit, a w a s t e l a n d and a h o r r o r . "

But can Bellow finally interpret this revelation as the answer to Herzog's "crisis of belief?" In the first place. Herzog is a thinker, not a doer. Bellow implies in Herzog what he has condemned as a characteristic of too m a n y modern m e n . In the a c c e p t a n c e speech, Bellow questioned whethe r the u l t i m a t e value of m a n was only his ability to think, lo u n d e r s t a n d his universe. Bellow implied that the novelist and thus modern m a n h a s somehow lost the capacity

One of the most striking qualities of Bellow's technique is his ability to note thingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;events which he turns into d r a m a t i c action and intimate details which he uses to set a background for the action or the psychological state which he wishes to portray. Herzog himself, in his state of mental crisis, w i t h d r a w s from social contact, but never stops observing his world. In true affluent society fashion Herzog had fled from the stifling a t m o s p h e r e of m i d ^ u r r m e r \ e w York to his nntive Chicago and then to his h o m e in the Berkshires, but in e a c h of these places he constantly observes, m e d i t a t e s , evaluates. The flight itself is essentially* an escape, an e s c a p e which allows Herzog to put off contact with essential problems. His urge to observe, however, is so g r e a t that it is finally the thing which again arouses his sensitivity. Herzog faces the uselessness of e s c a p e first in the court trial of the m u r d e r e r of a small chiW, and ulLimately in the n e a r death of his own d a u g h t e r .

to change his world. "Can we do no more than complain about i t ? " he asks. Herzog will understand his relationshins with women. he will understand his inability to finish his book, but will he change his a m a t o r y habits, will he ever continue to gather material for his book, will he bu d b l e t o ehango his b u r e a u c r a t i c m a s s society? This is the challenge which Bellow m a k e s to modern writers and ultimately the challenge which Herzog is left facing. Bellow, in a basically- optimistic f r a m e of mind, would like to s^y that HerzoÂŽ h-^s changed, t h a t his illness h a s brought him into a new revitalized relationship with life, but somehow the r e a d e r is too impressed with {h2 fact that Herzog is left lying in his h a m m o c k , staring up into the beautiful, empty sky. There is little doubt that Bellow has insight into problems of modern society even

anchor book review

MARY HAKKEN though his discussions sometimes become r a t h e r esoteric, but t h e r e is even less doubt that Bellow is a fascinating novelist. The intellectual perception of microscopic changes of feeling which J a m e s was able to evoke by circling around the situation he wished to describe. Bellow h a s achieved with p r i m a r y motive detail, with his skillful changes in point of view, but m o s t of all. with his device of the letters. Even if Bellow has been indulgent in the presentation of the letters, often allowing them to range beyond any effect in the story, this last device allows the r e a d e r to see Herzog's t o r m e n t , to follow his a t t e m p t s to alleviate his distress and finally to see his f r u s t r a tion at what can only be the inconclusiveness of his own behavior.

IFC Proposes Positive C h a n g e s i n I n i t i a t i o n s H E R E A R E MANY WAYS of fostering a sense of unity and fellowship in a fraternity. O n e ot these is through initiation ceremonies. An impressive formal initiation can be very effective in teaching the initiate the aims and goals of the fraternity. So too, in a different way can the pledge tasks and the activities of an informal initiation be helpful, it planned with the same aims and goals clearly in mind and if carried out in the right spirit by both actives and pledges.

T

T h e Inter-Fraternity Council is well aware that informal initiation has been marked in the past by some excesses and questionable practices. As it has studied the matter, it has come to the conclusion that at times the positive values noped for from these activities have been more than matched by the negative results on the initiates, the fraternity and the college as a whole. T h e Council has listed the following results that need to be avoided: 1. Physical h a r m to the initiate. 2. Violation of the basic integrity of the initiate. ( R e o u i r i n g him to do what he feels is debasing or unethical.) 3. Violation of the standards of conduct and ideals to which the college community subscribes as a Christian institution. 4. Interference with the academic growth of the initiate or ' h e academic processes of the institution. H E C O U N C I L R E C O G N I Z E S t h a t carrying on a good i n f o r m a l initiation is a matter of j u d g m e n t and the proper spirit a n d that each fraternity has t h e basic responsibility for m a i n t a i n i n g this spirit and judgement. Rules a n d regulations of themselves are never adequate. However, from studying the patterns of the past, the Council

T

<

concluded that there were certain ground rules which, if adopted by the member fraternities of the I.F.C., would tend to eliminate the negative results listed above. Therelore. the Council has moved to adopt the following regulations: 1. Pledge period starts when bids are accepted, and shall last for six full school weeks exclusive of all official vacations. 2. A m a x i m u m of three hours can be required from each pledge by the fraternity (per week), exclusive of the 24 h o u r period set aside for informal initiation. 3. T h e r e will be no harassment of pledges at any time d u r i n g the pledge period. a. Harassment is defined as the complete exhaustion of the pledge by means of repeated and extreme attacks on his physical make-up. T h e fraternity will be held responsible for any physical harm done to the initiate. b. Harassment does not include (1) wearing b u r l a p exclusive of the school day, (2) a reasonable a m o u n t of physical exercise m d (3) any washable decoration not harmful to the skin. 4. O n e day will be set aside for wearing of costumes. B. Regulations

for

informal

initiation:

1. Not more than twenty-four hours shall be devoted to informal initiation at some time d u r i n g the six-week pledge period. 2. All activities on campus will be confined to the fraternity houses. All other activities shall be designed so as not to disrupt the normal activities of the college or community. However, activities mav take place off campus. 3. N o inedible foods will be fed the pledges. N o food shall be forcibly fed to a pledge by h a n d .

4. T h e r e will be no lides and n o paddling. 5. T h e r e will be no debasing of the individual pledge. (>. Quests will be allowed within the city limits and will be subject to review. C. Punishment for breaking which is listed above:

a regulation

1. All violations of these rules will be reviewed by the judicial committee of the I.EC. 2. First offense will result in loss of next informal. 3. Second offense will result in social probation for one (1) full semester (18 weeks) d u r i n g which school is in session. Rushing may take place within this period. but there will be n o fraternity parties with dates. All rushing parties must be within the fraternity house, and when a fraternity receives its accepted bids back from the pledges, the pledges will go inactive until the fraternity leaves social probation. 4. In the event a third offense occurs within a period of six (6) semesters, the I.F.C. will sit as a judicial body and will take direct punitive action. 5. No letters will be sent from the I.F.C. to an individual fraternity as a warning that ihev have broken a rule. (This has been done in the past as a warning that f u r t h e r action bv the fraternity would result in punitive action.) D. Inspection

procedure:

1. T h e inspection committee shall consist of the president and two other members of I.F.C. who have the prerogative of inspecting any fraternity's initiation program firsthand. 2. T h e insnection committee will report their findings to the judicial committee of the I.F.C.

The Pill: A Postlude

By Dr. Gerhard F. Megow Sometimes the editorial decisions of the anchor staff run the risk of f r a m i n g t h e author of an article in a more controversially oblique light than he himself might h a v e wished for, although such decisions m a y very well give at the s a m e t i m e a sort of two edged i m p e t u s to the subject m a t t e r of the article. Unfortunately, I know f r o m m y own experience how easy it can be to get author and subject m a t t e r mixed up and hold the one accountable for the other. This is what in m y view happened in the c a s e of the " P i l l , " and 1 wish the anchor would h a v e shown a litt.e m o r e r e s t r a i n t in headlining what h a s been printed on the subject. I think my style in presenting issues which I think about and which I would like to s h a r e with others for stimulus and clarification is—if anything—sufficiently s t r a i g h t f o r w a r d and to the point that it can do very well without editorial punch lines which a r e not of my own making. Pill F a c t s Substantiated My own title to the article was "The Pill and Your L i f e , " and only a f t e r m y introduction, which Mr. Oettle " u n d e r s t o o d " so a d m i r a b l y well, did I p h r a s e the following warning sentence within the running text: " S t a y away f r o m the pill, or you run a good chance ot being killed by it," (up to h e r e 1 wanted the sentence in bold print) —but the sentence goes on to say— "could be the condensed meaning of a lengthy article in the Chicago Sun T i m e s of D e c e m b e r 19, 1965." After that, essentially the Sun Times s p e a k s in what I write verbatim or in p a r a p h r a s e — a n d not I. And I challenge anybody in his right mind to prove a f t e r reading the e x c e r p t s that this could definitely not be the condensed meaning of the article. Agrees With Dr. Mooi It is h e r e , w h e r e Dr. Mooi's letter does not show with sufficient clarity t h a t basically he is at variance—not with me—but 1.) with the headline "The Pill Can Kill," and 2) with the views presented in the article of the Chicago Sun Times and with his distinguished collegues who a r e cited there. When reading Dr. Mooi's letter, I was in fact comforted by the thought that he must h a v e understood and essentially a g r e e d with m y motivations for writing the article. I write forcefully b e c a u s e I want answers or help in finding t h e m , but answers which a r e m o r e probing and perceptive than the e x u b e r a n t reply of a young student who h a s quaffed the first d r a f t s of the heady wine called " s c i e n c e " and has not yet come down to the bottom of the cup w h e r e the dregs m a y threaten to leave him with an incurable hangover. To his question w h e r e I h a v e been hiding I m i g h t quizzically and somewhat condescendingly reply that a f e r 24 y e a r s of blissful m a r riage, s t a r t e d at the age of 29— and lived without the pill—I am not likely to be too fervently submersed in a r e a s of h u m a n interest where the " P i l l " might loom l a r g e , but 1 m i g h t r a t h e r look at h i m f r o m behind a stack of books dealing with probably the m o s t exciting and f a r - r e a c h i n g frontier of m a n ' s search, and this frontier is precisely in the a r e a of the interdependence of science and morally which he thinks he can pooh-pooh. He h a s m a d e absolutely no earthshaking discovery when he shrilly points out that m y preoccupation is with ethics and not with what he u n d e r s t a n d s by. " s c i e n c e . " 1 a m the first to admit that, especially since I a m supposed to be a Christian teaching at a Christian College and also a h u m a n i s t . Disregard ethics, and you h a v e neither religion, nor philosophy, nor a r t for t h a t m a t t e r nor anything that could be dignified with the epithet "man." This does of c o u r s e not m e a n that

if you h a v e ethics you n a v e everything else, but it does m e a n that without ethics everything e l s e is empty. And since ' P l a n c k ' s q u a n t u m theory and Heisenberg's principle of i n d e t e r m i n a c y h a v e furnished us with the realization that m a n as a s u b j e c t is an i n s e p a r a b l e part of his " s c i e n t i f i c " observations, m a n ' s m o ra l i t y undeniably e n t e r s into the " s c i e n t i f i c " picture, too, for without morality t h e r e is no " M a n . " .Admittedly all this thinking is radically new and n e e d s a lot m o r e clarification. It is just for this reason t h a t the interdependence of science and morality is one of the hottest f r o n t i e r s in the intellectual e f f o r t s of m a n . And I might ask a g a i n : " W h e r e has m y young student friend been hiding? In the 19th c e n t u r y by any c h a n c e ? Tsk, tsk! 'Born in the mid-twentieth c e n t u r y and then this?

Students Protest Regulations By Dick Shiels

North P a r k College in Chicago is, in m a n y ways, very m u c h like Hope. It is a small, c h u r c h sponsored liberal a r t s insti f ution with the basic purpose of providing an education to students of a middle class background within a "Christian e n v i r o n m e n t , " and consequently it p r e s e n t s its students with a fairly specific set of do's and don'ts.

" or " e v e r y student knew what the regulations were before choosing to c o m e h e r e . " T h e r e a r e some students though who rebel e v e n against this rationale. A case in point might be Alex Molnar, who, I'm a f r a i d , is very much like s o m e Students h e r e at Hope (he even writes a column for the n e w s p a p e r u n d e r the heading "On and off the C a m p u s " ) .

T h e a c c o m p l i s h m e n t is such a swift, poetic, suspenseful film that the t r a g e d y is almost concealed in gentle lyricism.

is a "ridiculous p h r a s e substituted for legitimate d e b a t e . " He does not try to a n s w e r it as an argu ment but to identify the " n a r r o w minded a t t i t u d e " behind it. North P a r k is p r i m a r i l y supported by the Evangelical Covenant Church of A m e r i c a and m u s t then bow to its dictates. With that he can a g r e e . But he a r g u e s t h a t there i? no excuse h e r e for a narrowminded unwillingness to s u b m i t to honest discussion of these dictates. The a d m i n i s t r a t i o n , he admits, probably enforces its policies with the f i r m conviction that they a r e right. But does it follow that the student has no right to d e b a t e those policies? Alex Molnar is a Catholic at a P r o t e s t a n t school and is t h e r e f o r e against compulsory c h a p e l . He h a s been s m o k i n g since high school and would a p p r e c i a t e the f r e e d o m to do so now. He s e e s nothing wrong with dancing. But he admits that all of these issues a r e really insignificant; none of t h e m a r e big enough to really m a k e anyone dissatisfied with the school. What is significant, w h a t is big enough to turn s t u d e n t s against a school as a whole, is t h e attitude which r e f u s e s to discuss t h e issues —or at least to seriously question the s t a t u s quo. To quote him a g a i n : " I do not expect passive compliance with m y point of view bui I d e m a n d t h a t the point of view I and m a n y others espouse 'be subjected to e x a m i n a t i o n .

A Dill Pill

Edited by Jack By Rob Werge Even the talk at the Dean's List Tea w a s different. Usually it doesn't get beyond such niceties as "One or two l u m p s ? " (in the tea. that is) or "Well, Q a r a , I never thought I would see you here. You always struck me as being ignorant and d u l l . " " I ' m gonna hitcha wit m o h ' a n m y ignorance if ya don't shutup, B e r t h a . " Or " I ' m so brilliant I get dazzled e v e r y time I look into a m i r r o r . " And so forth. But this y e a r the talk w a s about the Pill. (This is not to be confused with the pink Clinic pill renowned as a cure-all for the common cold, m a l a r i a , some forms of Dutch elm disease and wounds.) With its innocuous off-white shade, No Kidz has replaced No-Doz as collegians' favorite pill. "A pill a day keeps the pediatrician a w a y " is already a commonplace. Not that there isn't a need for it. Witness the d i s a s t e r s wrought by overpopulation at such places as Calvin. The real reason for their intrusion on Monday was that they were desperately trying to enroll at Hope to avoid overcrowding and deprivation at home. Their plan was to take over the records office, change the n a m e s on documents and then begin to attend classes on Tuesday disguised as pre-sem students. Slinging mud at them, however, with our usual bravado, we repulsed them. Now

The p r o g r a m will conclude with a p e r f o r m a n c e of Alberto Gina s t e r a ' s " S o n a t a p a r a P i a n o .

Still t h e r e r e m a i n s the question of pill morality. ("Oh d r a t , " s a y . Selma Schwartz who was about to rush out to Downtown Discount.) What does the Church have to say about the pill? For that m a t t e r , what does the pill have to say aibout the Church? What would Mrs. Calvin say to Mrs. Zwingli (besides " Y o u r husband is a theological n u t " ) ? (The following answer to that question is taken f r o m a t r a c t entiled "The Pill, Communism and the Pope, or A Conspiracy" which was printed by Reformed Patriots Inc. in Zeeland. The t r a c t was thrust into m y hand by an old wom a n disguised as a telephone booth on Eighth Street last week.) "The R e f o r m e d Church must encourage the use of the pill, but only by other groups. We've got to get minority groups such a s the

Mexicans, Negroes and Presbyterians to use it. Meanwhile we will increase our own n u m b e r s while theirs remain about the same. "We must stop m e r e l y propagating the Gospel and propagate ourselves more. Only then will we Reformeds be able to expand over the evil worldly papists and communists. Moving out of Albany, east f r o m Iowa and south f r o m Holland-Zeeland, w e could easily control the whole IMidwest. A general synod could then be called to tell us what to do with it. "While the population of the pilltakers evens off, we could penet r a t e the cities—New York, Detroit, Oshkosh. With a soaring birth rate, the Church and its saints would take over national elections. We wait for the day when there will be a Vander in front of every cabinet m e m b e r ' s last name, e.g., Vander Wirtz and Vander Udall. We must go forward and eliminate the free-thinkers, pinkos. Catholics and Baptists and E a r l Warren from Washington. Only then will we be safe for d e m o c r a c y . "

Dutchmen Suffer the Agony Of Defeat in Calvin Game JIM "BRUTE" KLEIN

BILL "POTTS" POTTER

Having lost to the Albion Britons last Wednesday evening, the Hope Fly-ing Dutch basketball squad w e r e out to retain their basketball crown in the MIAA, trying to defeat the Calvin Knights last Saturday. A win would have given Hope a tie for first place with the leagueleading Knights but as it was, Hope lost 79-72 and thus put the 1965 MIAA champions in the second place spot behind Coach B a r n e y Steen's Knights. A f t e r pre-^game antics put on by the playful Calvin K n i g h t s and friend, the Knollcrest audience settled down to the serious business at hand. With the opening tip, the Dutch soared out to a 7-2 lead, and continued to play over the head of the Calvin quintet. T e a m Captain Clare Van Wieren had started the t e a m off on a good foot, with t h r e e quick baskets, and things seemed to be pretty black for the Knights. Then the little men in striped shirts entered the picture and quickly evened the t e a m s with three offensive fouls on Van Wieren. With the leading scorer out of the lineup, Hope's offense suddenly seemed to stop, and the Knights picked up the pace to tie the score with a little over 4:00 to go in the half. Both t e a m s played r a t h e r sloppy basketball from then until half time, u h e n J i m " B r u t e " Klein hit a j u m p shot to tie the score at 3535 with the sounding of the buzzer. The one bright thing of the first

turnovers and Calvin baskets narrowed the lead and grounded the Flying Dutch. Both t e a m s t r a d e d baskets for several m i n u t e s , with Hope's Roy Anker leading the way. Roy played one of the best g a m e s of his c a r e e r , with a 22-point scoring spree, m u c h of which c a m e in the second half. The 6 7 " senior center consistently out-maneuvered DeHorn to m a k e several bank shots off the backboard. With four minutes left, Calvin tied the g a m e at 65-all and went on to take a d v a n t a g e of Hope's mist a k e s to win the g a m e , the c h a m pionship and the last g a m e under retiring Coacd B a r n e y Steen. Both Hope and Calvin played three seniors in their last g a m e . Calvin was r e p r e s e n t e d by seniors Ed Douma of Muskegon. J i m Fredericks of Holland and Bill Knoester of Grand Rapids. Hope seniors playing their last g a m e w e r e Bill Potter of Grand Rapids, Roy Anker of South Holland, 111., and Clare Van Wieren of Holland. Anker led the Flying Dutch in their losing effort wih 22 tallies, Floyd Brady followed with 19 and Clare Van Wieren, losing the MIAA scoring title by t h r e e points to De Horn of Calvin, pumped in 17 points while playing only threefourths of the g a m e . DeHorn won the title by scoring 14 points, including s o m e vital free throws in the last m i n u t e s of the g a m e , which he received on fouls by Anker and Klein.

to be less of a scoring feat, and the Dutch lost the contest 73-66. Hope's junior varsity j u m p e d out to an early lead, soon lost it, then proceeded to battle Calvin and their own m i s t a k e s . After five minutes of t r a d i n g baskets with m i s t a k e s i n t e r m i n g l i n g by both

t e a m s the Knights took a slight lead. Bruce Van Huis picked up the slack for Hope and kept the little Dutch in the contest with some fancy out-court shooting. The Dutch tied the score at 32-all, then failed to gain the lead as time r a n out on them, with the ball under the Calvin basket in the h a n d s of Bob Essink. Both t e a m s , a f t e r an error-filled first half, r e t u r n e d to the c o u r t to find the Knights throwing anything through t h e b a s k e t and the Dutch unable to find the range. The Dutch could only m a n a g e 11 points in the first 12 m i n u t e s of play in the second half, as the b o m b a r d i n g Knights ran the score to 57-43 with 8:47 left on the clock.

A stalwart effort by Van Huis, Dave Utzinger, John Leenhouts, Dennis Bobeldyke and Rick Brugges then brought the g a m e into r e a c h . A p r e s s by the O r a n g e and Blue s e e m e d to fluster the Calvin five and with one m i n u t e and six seconds left in the g a m e t h e score was cut to a four-point Calvin lead, 68-64. The scoring s p u r t on the part of the Hope s q u a d w a s then halted by the Calvin d e f e n s e and the lack of time, giving the Knights their revenge with a 73-66 victory. This ended the season for the junior varsity, which has had a very successful season with 11 wins and 5 losses, under the direction of Coach Daryl Siedentop.
