HOPE COLLEGE, Holland, Michigan, Mar. 5, 1924

Volume XXXVI

EIGHT COLLEGES ENTER M. 0. L. —0— P L A N S FOR M. 0 . L. COMPLETE —o— Subjects Announced —o— Hope College will Friday be placed in the limelight of attention. Eight colleges will send their representatives to compete in the M. 0 . L, contest which this year promises to be one of particular merit. Hope will be represented by Miss Agnes Buikema and John Dethmers. Both are well prepared and will enter as speakers of unusual poise and power. They have given their oration at the Zeeland High school and in chapel where they were much applauded and commended. Subjects Announced Through permission of the league officer the subjects have been released f o r publication. They are: The Great Idea, Justice thru Law, The Struggle of Fiath, Unto One of the Least of These, The Glory of the Commonplace, The Enemy Within, Feet of -Clay, Divine Discontent, The Devil-fish, The Ku Klux Klan, Cathedral Citizenship, The Perpetual Drama and the Critic, The F i r e ' that Failed, America's strongest Citadel and The Weakness of Strength. The last two subjects are those of Miss Buikema and Mr. Dethmers respectively. Local Arrangements Made Excellent program features have been provided f o r which will add to the entertainment of the contest. Music will be furnished by the Young Women'r Glee Club and the College Orchestra at both the contest at 2:00 o'clock and the one at 7:30. Damson will led as chermaster and Do Maagd direct the singing. Prof. P. E. Hinkamp, chairman of the executive committee, states that ample provisions have been made for the large body of guests who will attend. U L F I L A S TO GIVE ANNUAL PROGRAM IN J U N E The oldest and only Dutch literary society upon the campus, Ulfilas, claims unique distinction. Many of the f o r m e r students of Hope have been members of this organization. They have enjoyed not only literary benefits—and who shall measure the true depth of Dutch literature?—but they have drunk at the fountain of mirth as well. The society does not exist sokly f o r study as such. That seems to be the impression which has kept some students from joining this year. To be sure, literary programs are given, criticised, and studied. Other literary societies exist f o r a similar purpose. Yet, almost every student knows that there is more than the literary benefit accruing to a member of these other organization. There is the social fellowship, the broadening of mind, the unbiased viewpoint, and the refreshing outlook which one gains. So with Ulfilas. In addition to this, there is a spicy wit and healthy humor which makes the Dutchman and his language so widely known. Ability to understand and to partially speak the language are the only requirements necessary for membership. Come out and help the small but determined number who are working to maintain this organization. The Dutch language is neither dead nor dying, and f u t u r e service may call f o r knowledge of i t . u The club members are soon to begin work upon the play which they will render during Commencement Week, A real program will be given as in other years. We ask f o r your support.



Y. M. BOYS ADDRESS Y. W. C. A. GIRLS —o— Men's Quartette Sings —o— The girls opened their meeting with a few short prayers, and a f t e r the quartette composed of Bill Van't Hof, John De Maagd, Fred Yonkman and John Voss, sang "My Anchor Holds," the discussing was left to the boys. Richard Harkem read the beautiful story of Ruth, showing how her love f o r her mother-in-law made her love the God of her mother-in-law. We can uphold principles to be followed by those who love us. College girls should have a definite purpose at school and be watchful of their manners and morals. John De Maagd showed how the virtues of beauty, wisdom, sensibility, and character are admirable in the ideal woman. He referred to the words in Proverbs 14: "Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with, her hands." The ideal woman must uphold the principles of religion. (Dr. Wood of the Battle Creek Sanitarium will address the girls next Thursday). -o-

CHICAGO HOPE CLUB HOLDS MEET1HG P R E S I D E N T D1MNENT IS SPEAKER Directed by Attorney Gelmer Kuiper, '89, President, and engineered by Dr. John H. Hospers, '01, Secretary of the Chicago Hope Club met in the City Cluu, Wednesday Feb. 13. 1924, at 12:30 p.m. for the quarterly dinner. Every "decade" since the eighties was represented and Parlor D of the Club building, a building given over entirely to meetings of clubs and civic organizations, was filled. Rev. Albert Oosterhof, '92, and Attorney Wiley W. Mills, '93, now of the famous City Council of Chicago, "the most-talked-of aldermanic body in the world," sponsored the early nineties while Edward D. Dimnent, '96, of the College held the fort for the late nineties. Dr. John H. Hospers, '01, and Dr. Frank Hospers, '10, Rev. Fred Zandstra. '12, Rev. J. J . Althuis, '14, Rev. Richard Vandenburg, '13, Rev. John Kuite, '16, Paul Stegema, '17, Edward H. Koster, '18, Willard Van Hazel, '20, John Dalenburg, '20, Henry Mol, '21, Theodore Yntema, '21, Ward A. De Young, '22, Everett W. Gaikema, '22, Anthony Z. Meengs, '22. Nanko Bos, '22, and Dick Jappinga, *23, completed the roll. The majority of these are in graduate or professional work in the universities of the city. Attorney Kuiper presided as only he can with as much vim, humor and magnetism as any of the "youngsters" might have done. By special invitation President Dimnent spoke on "The American College as the Greatest Potential Force in American Life."- The main lines of the address indicated the changes that have taken place in the last twenty years in American educational practice and purpose, pointed out the value of these changes in their influence on our national development, and showed how they were to be directed and controlled for the formation of a sound, stable Americanism in the future. Hope's position as a college, with traditions fundamentally American but withal cosmopolitan and with an outlook upon the life dedicated to progress, was emphasized as a possession any alumnus could be proud of and devotion to such ideals was urged upon the Chicago Hope Club.


BANQUET HELD IN CLUB ROOMS —o— Many Alumni Present

At the sound of the "hunt's-up" fifty Sorosite huntresses began their leap year chase in the Literary Club rooms at six-thirty Saturday evening. There, the active members and the alumnae of Sigma Sigma brought their guests to partake of their eighteenth annual banquet. A f t e r everyone had gathered in the gayly lighted reception rooms, the party descended to the Lodge—a unique structure of brown crepe paper logs with animal skins and palms in profusion. The huntswomen and their "game," having satisfied their appetites at daffodil bedecked tables, were warmed by Sorosite President Nella Den Herder, '24, that the hunt was up. She cleverly introduced each speaker. Sorosite Isla Prium, '24, responded to the first toast on "The Bugle." Clara Yntema, '16, spoke of the "Tally-Ho." Then, Sorosite Helen Smith, '22, pleased the company with heV lovely jvocal solos, afterwhich Frances Huntley, '27, toasted to "The Chase." Aleen De Jong, '25, toasted to the men (or rather of them, and how many things didn't she tell!) on "Tangled Antlers." Sorosite Nella Meyer in her chaining manner rendered a piano solo and Marian Van Drezer, '18, toasted on "Fording". After a trio sung by Sorosite Isla Prium, '24, J a n e t Albers, '25, and Marian Vr.n Vessem, '21^ Adelaide Borgman, '25, bid farewell to the seniors in a toast to "Sunset." With a start we realized t h a t we were singing the Sorosis song and the night was spent— "When youth and pleasure meet So chase the glowing hours with flying f e e t . "

HOPE SPLITS EVEN OH WEEK-END TRIP H O P E R E C E I V E S WONDERFUL T R E A T M E N T AT MANCHESTER —o— . Capt. Irving Injured. —o— The Orange and Blue turned in a win and a loss on their week-end trip through Indiana. At Manchester College they nosed out the College quintet by the narrow margin of 24—23. Each team scored 11 field goals, but Hope cashed in on two free throws while Manchester tossed in one. The score was tied 12 all at half time and the play was f a s t throughout both periods. The game was exceptionally clean, only nine free throws being attempted by both fives. Praise For Manchester One of the outstanding features of the game was the very excellent treatment which the athletic director at Manchester accorded our squad. The team was shown about the city and entertainment was provided for every leisure moment that the team spent as visitors a t Manchester." Every fellow and Coach " J a c k " was loud in his praise f o r the most hospitable trip t h a t they had ever been on. Should Manchester ever play a return game, the best t h a t Hope students and faculty could do would be to accord the Manchester guests the same royal treatment which they extended to the Orange and Blue squad. Huntington Wins by Foul At Huntington the team had some hard luck. All went well throughout (Continued on Last Page)

'Number 20


Young Man's Purpose"

Mr. John Van Brook, a "Hi-Y" worker of Grand Rapids, addressed the " Y " men last Tuesday evening at the regular meeting. There was an unusually large attendance out to tha meeting to welcome the visitor. Mr. Van Brook emphasized the importance of clean living both f r o m a physical, mental and moral standpoint. He related how Daniel had refused to defile himself with the wine and the luxury and lust of Nebuchadnezzar's court; choosing rather to live temperately and t r u s t in God. Young people of today need a greater realization of the importance of living clean and temperate 5 lives. Then, he showed how Niagara Falls is the great source of light and power f o r many of the great cities. By using the great power of Niagara, immense mills are operated and great cities are illuminated with thousands of twinkling lights. In like manner God is the Great Source of all life. We need but turn to God f o r that supreme with which we can operate the great mills of life and shed His Divine Light to ilumine a dark and sinful world. .


The Hope College negative debating team Friday evening successfully defended its views on the Huber unemployment insurance law against the affirmative trio from Western State Normal, winning the unanimous decision of the judges. Both teams had strong arguments in their favor b u t the case of the negative. Van Farrowe, Veneklassen, and Van Enanm, was better presented than was Western State Normal's and their arguments furnished a less vulnerable point of attack in the rebuttals. However, the affirmative of Western State Normal advanced their case in such a manner t h a t f o r a time during the constructive argument it would have been difficult to decide the outcome of the contest. Prof. Winter, of Hope College, presided at the debate. Messrs. Evans, Shigley, and Masselink judged the contest. ••i •• • Hope Atfirmative Loses • While the negative team was wining a unanimous decision on its home platform, the affirmative team lost at Ypsilanti by a-similar score.

faith. The people in general have a selfish conception of this country. They think t h a t the United States is f o r the United States, whereas, this commonwealth does its best to help all nations. Because of these mis-interpretations, many people continually criticise the government about which they themselves know nothing. We should always be careful in making criticisms, for, usually the less one knows about a -subject, the more he criticises it. A cultivation of more faith and less criticism would be a great asset not only to this nation but to the world at large. In order t h a t we may be more efficient men and women, it is necessary for us to have faith in ourselves, in our fellowmen, in our nation, in our present and in our future. The only way in which a strong f a i t h can be obtained is by knowing the author and finisher of our faith, Jesus Christ. Dr. Stone was scheduled to speak in the Seminary Chapel but because of the keen interest which was shown by the College students, the address was delivered in Winants' Chapel. o Read the Honor Code.

Accepted for mailing at special rate of postage for Section IIO.'J, Act of October, 1917, authorized October 19, 191& TO OUR ORATORS. This week occasions an event of preeminent and premier importance. It is an event about which Michigan collegiate circles will focus their attention with uncommon tenseness and exclusive emphasis, an event which perhaps transcends in rational importance and intriasic value any other collegiate contest of the year. It is the M. 0 . L. contest. Our interest in this event, this tournament of lofty thought, is particularly enhanced by its occurrence on our own campus. There, however, is another and better reason for our interest. It is the assurance of success, an assurance made certain by the long hours of antecedent preparation which those two who will represent us, have made. It is to these two who have so nobly prepared and that one who has so nobly aided their preparation that the Anchor staff sends its best wishes of success. The staff takes an added pleasure in assuring that for them, loyal hearts are beating every trying moment of the Oght. —G.

SI'S STATISTICS In case of a fire on the campus there are nine hydrants available f o r water supply. Van Raalte Hall i? architecturally beautified by 17 balls each mounted on its own pinnacle. There are 11 buildings on the sixteen acres.

"So friendship with your instructor won't do any good; no one can be accused of currying favor with him. And as a consequence you may see as much or as little of him as your mutual desire for friendship suggests." . Realizing fully the difficulty of putting into effect such a plan a t Hope or a t any other American institution, we, nevertheless, present the plan for the benefit of those who are interested in this typically American campus problem.

In 1880 the Edison Electric Illuminating Company, of New York City, installed a generator of 1200 lamps capacity, then considered a giant By continuous experimentation and ree e a r c h the General Electric Company has developed generators 900 times as powerful as this wonder of forty years ago.




The observatory presented to HOPE by Miss Emilie S. Coles in rembranc£ of her aunt Miss Maria L. Ackeiman Hoyt in 1904 is built of bricks. Of all the bricks used in its structure 4,229 are visible f r o m without. The North and South sides are of equal size and each contain a window of equal size. When you look a t either side you v i e w 970 b i b k s . The E a s t side contains the door and is built of 1,054 bricks. The West side containing no openings is made of 1,235 bricks.

The only remedy for this instinctive tendency of students to avoid their professors so as not to lay themselves open to the charge of "leg pulling" is to make the examinations and the passing of the course dependent Of some body outside of the professor in question. We would suggest some outside board, similar to a College Entrance Board, which would preMICHAEL FARADAY pare examinations and give them and 1791-1867 Apprentice toan English bookalso mark them.

In this connection we cite the following written by Mr. Sheperdson at Oxford, telling of how friendships are formed between students and instructors in the great English University.

WHAT IS COLLEGE FOR? What definite improvements do you expect your college education to make in you? What distinguishes an educated man from an uneducated one? "A leopard is known by his spots" —and an educated man by his speech. A person whose speech is marred by the frequent use of "he don't," "I seen," "we was," and similar errors, is branded as illiterate in any society he may enter. There is, indeed, some excuse for those who have not had the advantages of education, and of association with cultured people; but what apology can a college student offer f o r such flagrant mistakes? He can plead one thing only—carelessness; criminal negligence in the use of words. When you leave college, people will not ask what your grade in Chemistry or Biology was, or whether you can outline the events of the French Revolution, before they decide whether you are cultured or vulgar. They will judge you by the English you speak. For the sake not only of our own reputations, but for the honor of " W h a t makes this intimacy possible our college, let us unite in launching a campaign for better English on the (that between professor and student) is the f a c t that final examinations are campus. —P. never set by the professor.

This is a far-reaching problem, and one well worth of much serious thought, particularly on the part of the students. They are faced with two alternatives: make friends with the professors and benefit by the associations, at the same time risking unpopularity with their classmates; or leave the professors strictly alone,

To those students who have the Qniimiiiii moral courage we would advise an assiduous cultivation of friendship with their professors, as this course will make up in some measure f o r one of the greatest defects of a college education—the fact t h a t a student misses f o r four years contact with those older than himself. But the student will have to make up his mind to "hew to the line and let the chips fall where they may." —R.

What's the use of itT

Michael Faraday saw the real beginning of the age of electricity nearly a century ago when he thrust a bar magnet into a coil of wire connected with a galvanometer and made the needle swing. Gladstone, watching Faraday at work in his laboratory, asked, "What's the use of it?" The experimenter jestingly replied, "There is every probability that you will soon be able to tax it" The world-wide use of electricity that has followed the Faraday discovery abundantly justifies the retort to Gladstone. Faraday's theory of lines of force is constantly applied in the Research Laboratories of the General Electric Company in devising new electrical apparatus of which Faraday never dreamed Every generator and motor is an elaboration of the simple instruments with which he first discovered and explained induction.

Student Forum LET US LIVE IT In the recent issue of the Anchor three appeared several good thoughts in reply to the question " W h a t is Hope S p i r i t ? " * It is pleasing to note that our college spirit has something of which other colleges cannot boast, i t fills us with pride to know that Hope spirit is the real spirit; but, is the spirit we boast of, the spirit we live up t o ? How is Hope to be judged? The old saying, "Actions speaks louder than words," confronts us. We talk big: we do not live it. Friday, the 29th of February, a debate was scheduled between our college and Western State Normal. That very night a group of students enjoyed a sleigh ride. Another group of students rejoiced in a "Hard Time" party. Is Hope spirit to be lauded? Our debating season was already decorated with three defeats and how much more the final conflict demanded their support. Does Hope College spirit need another interpretation? another definition? Fellow Students! why pat ourselves on the back when we have weak backs? why say a thing and do it not? If Hope College spirit, so clearly and well-defined by two of the graduates and one of our students of the class of '24, is to remain such a spirit, we, at Hope must live the part. Are we going to do i t ? Let us not pretend such a high standard of undying loyalty if it does not exist. —W. G. M., '27. PATTERSON MAKES CONTRIBUTION

A g r e a t deal has been written about • Oxford during the thousand years of its experience. Novels have been built around it; poets have loved it well; essayists have drawn f r o m its inexhaustible quarry; and historians have told its story over and over again. But American students have discovered it f o r themselves only during the present generation, and, like any other interesting discovery, it deserves to be passed on to someone else. We know altogether too little about the "Mother of Colleges"—-our Alma Grandmater.


When once you have been a part of the life a t Oxford, Oxford is part of your own life—one of those memories t h a t become fresh and vivid upon t h e slightest provocation. All this is dangerous; f o r the first memories t h a t come to mind are of the most elusive sort—the gardens of New College and the well-groomed lawns of Worcester; Old Tom ringing out its hundred and one strokes from Christ Church Tower through the midnight rain; old men and young men assembling in their gowns and bright-colored hoods for the formal functions of the University. There is a danger, too. of being diverted into the "curiosities" of Oxfoi-d life, its picturesque institutions which seem to link this generation of undergraduates to those genera-, tions which have gone before; the "scout" on the staircase who cares f o r your rooms, brings gigantic breakfasts f o r the half-dozen guests who are huddling round your feeble Are on a cold damp morning; students tearing through the streets on bicycles, rushing f' r o m one lecture «. •to another with their short black gowns bellying out behind like a full gib; the round tin bath tub—"your bath, sir!" and a cold one a t that— which shivering Oxford men accept defiantly as a challenge to the progress of science in material comforts.

In the second place nothing will so enhance this column as a few personals now and then. These personals will never be used as reflections on our loyal readers, but will, as a matter of truth, be mere cases of actual happenings on our campus. Life's little bits of humor are never rejected by fellow men, and a joke on (oneself) once in a while will give one a greater appreciation if the joke is on the other fellow! In the last place, we suggest, that when you read this column, you always do so with a smile, a laugh, or a whimsical grin.

Only two field goals were scored by Huntington, 73 while Hope scored three. Captain Irving was injured in the second half and Albers filled his shoes in veter,, an style.
