HOPE WINS DOUBLE ORATORICAL HONOR HOPE FIRST IN ORATORY ORATORS AND DR. NYKERK REWARDED FOR HARD WORK. ^ —o— Report Received By Night Letter. —o— Dear Hopeites:— First lap has begun. On the in^terruban. Si bolts the party to sit with an unknown woman. Dr. Nykerk entertains your scribe with the scandal page of the Chicago Tri* bune. Grand Rapids reached at last, Miss Gibson and the girls raid a pop-corn stand in Union Depot. Eleven-five and all is well. ' ^ —o— 1:35 P. M. Getting near Jackson now. Everyone is ,wondering where we go from here. Only our trusty I)r. Nykerk knows. Miss Gibson is ^ e r y hungry and is talking of another raid on the popcorn. Your scribe, however, is hoping to surround a real dinner. —o— 5:25 P. M. After a mild afternoon in Jackson we are again on the train. Your scribe dined with Nell and Miss Gibson at the Main Cafe on Main Street where a happy time was enjoyed by all parties concerned. Chick, Bill and Jack went to visit school, and later fell in the potjjf at the "Y". Mabel, Loops, i f a r g e and Jean tell queer tales, but have not satisfactorily reported their doings. Si went off t y himself,— said he had a sore heel. Miss Gib^ son, Nell, and I were headed straight for the Jacksort penitentiary when Dr. iNykerk came along and decided to go with us. Visitors were .not to be admitted, but upon ^seeing us, the warden quickly passed the Dr. and me inside the iron gates, and our fair chaperone and orator ^ had to plead with the guard half an hour befnrp before W weP wprp were released. Whew!!! It surely was a narrow escape. But all's well that end.i well.

60% Rule Inaugurated at Elon.

"At the opening of the fall semester it was announced t h a t the trustees of the college had passed a ruling that any student not passing 60 per cent of his work would not be allowed to return for the spring work. This ruling is now in operation, and there have been some 10 or 12 eliminations because of it. The eliminatons are fewer, however, than was expected, and the grades show a marked advance." Maroon and Gold (Elon College). "The Seniors of the U. of Carolina are soon to be distinguished from the common herd by their nifty canes, selected as a class emblem and as a means of prompting class unity." At Naperville, 111., the students have recently enjoyed an exceptional and unique chapel service. Herr Rhinhart iStrecker, formerly minist e r of education in the province of Hesse, and at present chairman of the German National Prohibition Association spoke on the world prohibition question. Martha Caapers Busch a graduate of the University of Cologne accompanied him as interpreter of his speeches which he delivered in the German tongue. She said /that tho the country of Germany is in a very bad condition economically, the people who have the best interests of the nation at heart, have faith in the young people to bring her back to a place of esteem among countries of the world. She stated that the young people were serious and many have dedicated their lives to the interesta of their country. At Wheaton College, 111., the privilege was given the students of seeing pictures of the Passion Play and Ober-Ammergau and heard an interesting lecture on the subject by one who visited Europe last summer.

A TALE OF ALEX ANDER. Alex Ander was a nice boy. He was just the kind of a boy the girls enjoy going out with. And truth to tell, Alex enjoyed going out with tha girls, notwithstanding the fact that his pocket-book suffered greatly by these episodes. Alex's folks, back in Kansas, often wondered a t the high rent, the high board bills, and the high dues of every sort, that Alex had to pay. But then, he was going to college, Hope College, at that, never went out with girls, and wrote home regularly. It is true this his letters were usually a plee for aid, financially, but then in a big town like Holland, everything was so high, you know, and Alex had always worked hard on the" farm, and deserved a soda once in a while. Now Alex fell in love with a f a i r senior. This was rank imprudence, as she was a member of the S. G. A. and he was only a freshman. Nevertheless, the ways of Cupid are past understanding, and Alex fell. This fair senior adored Whitman's chocolates; she loved flowers; she thought that the shows a t Grand Rapids were puite the thing,and t h a t the Holland Taxi was a pleasant means of travel; she thought t h a t mid-night suppers a f t e r the shows were so delightful; she thought many things. One evening, as Alex was studiously burying himself in the depths of "Who's Whose and Why", the telephone rang. "Hello," warbled that sweet voice at the other end, "Oh Alex, dear, I'm alone again this evening; please do come up. I H be waiting for the taxi at eight o'clock." Alex groaned, as he eyed his fifty dollar check, received in the noon mail, and calculated to suffice f o r the balance of the month. Nevertheless, he called the taxi, and answered Love's bidding. "Oh Alex, we have just time to get to the Rapids before the last show. Let's go, shall w e ? " was the greeting he received. Who could withstand such ardent pleading, those anxious eyes, those drooping lips? "The Rapids, Taxi," he ordered. The fair young thing gushed forth frothyg effervescent nothing^, t h a t sounded to Alex like the warbling of a bird; like the sweet babbling of a brook. He thought she was the most adorable girl; he thought he owned the world; he thought she loved him; he thought many things. They saw the show; they had a light lunch; he bought a box of

Winifred gave us a very interesting talk in a very original way on the subject, "The Charm of the Impossible." We all have high ideals which we hold before us as • our goals. They may be ideals pertaining to society, to Y. W. C. A., or even to the individual. The question is, "How can we accomplish the impossible?"

Were you at the "Y" meeting last week Tuesday? If you were not, did you have a bona fide reason for not being there? Perhaps, you are one of those who think the "Y" is not good enough for them and content themselves by attending the movie or wasting their time in some other way. To you I would say, get out of that r u t and spend t h a t one hour a week with your fellow students in communion with God. It will be to your advantage. I am sure that those who heard Herk Damstra speak on the subject "The Value and Necessity of Decision", received many suggestions worth pondering over. Did you ever stop to think that the value of making small decisions now would determine the course of your greater decisions later in life? The time for making a decision in respect to your life work is now, iii order t h a t you may have the migt time for preparing yourself in that direction. Do not be afraid of yourself, other people, or of the coat in making your decision for life work. No one wishes to be placed in the category

RETROSPECTION As business men from time to time take inventory, so it is well for every man to pause for a time and consider the past. Of course our slogan should ever be "Progress!", but is there nothing which the past can offer to make progress easier, perhaps more sure? I am but a Freshman, who but lately was seen on the streets of Holland and upon the campus, wearing the green cap, as surely the badge of a Freshman as the powdered wig and knee breeches are the badge of the aristocracy in some European countries. Perhaps, then, what I have to say will be "little noted or long remembered," but as I look back at the semester just spent at the College of my choice and ask the questions "Have I gained anything? What mistakes have I made that can be rectified?" I see a wealth of things which are bound to make progress more sure, if one notes them and then gets out of the rut. I have gained some book knowledge, seemingly a strange thing of course. I have had some experience of "being on my own hook", away from those who have hitherto, to some extent at least, influenced my every act and decision. I have made decisions; in some things I have fallen, but in the main there has been progress. So I might go on and give specific incidents of progress, incidents of failure, but I know that the "ego" will soon become irksome and some of our dignified Seniors will smile scornfully and perhaps say, "Bosh," or our Juniors will smile pityingly and say, "He doesn't know what he's talking about anyway". To write these incidents is not my purpose. I have but two things in mind and it seems .to me t h a t these must interest every true Hopeite. These are the Honor System and the "Dad Eliott meetings." One hears often the statement, "Things aren't what they used to be", or "Hope College isn't as good as it used to be." Yes, we often hear such things f r o m old-timers. Of course there's not one iota of truth in either one of them, taking the first to be the exact equal of the second. No, things are not what they used to be. We've made so much progress and we're so much better than the old-timers t h a t they can't "see us for dust," but statements like the above, ought to make any thinking man stop t o consider. What things can we do better? What mistakes are we making? W h a t part is each one doing io make the world

The following are clippings from the Holland City News: Twenty-Five Years Ago. John W. Beardslee J r . a young man from Holland, won the oratorical contest at Hope on Washington's birthday with his subject "The Powers in China." Cornelius Van der Meulen of Ebenezer was also favor-^ ablv mentioned with his "Joan of Arc." Henry Schippers did well with his subject "The Merrimac and Monitor" while Peter Marsilje had as his subject "The Christian College in America." Twenty Years Ago. "David the Shepherd Boy" put on by Prof. J. B. Nykerk under the auspices of College Choral Union was an exceptional success. G. J. Dinkeloo of Chicago very effectively took the part of David. Mr. Dinkeloo has a sweet and highly cultured voice and is a popular singer. Ray Hadden of Holland skillfully played sweet music on the harp to appease the wrath of King Saul. Miss Amy Dosker represented in a modest and graceful manner the Shepherd queen. James De 'Pree in a deep base voice, depicted the moods and emotions of old king Saul. There are 40 voices in the chorus. Fifteen Years Ago. Wm. Walvoord a senior was the • successful contestant in the oratoric• al contest at Carnegie Hall. His • subject was "The Siege of Leyden." I Peter Pleume a junior was second • winner, his subject being "In the { Spirit of Our Fathers."
