Hope College (third place)


-Arthur H. Chafer Hope's cagers, playing one of t h e Hillsdale College most brilliant games of t h e season, Down Your Sign" went down to defeat before the conJohn H. Albers sistent attack of Kalamazoo collego 34-26. o. The g a m e was a toss-up until the last three minutes of play when Kazoo took the lead and held it to the final whistle. Kleis, Hope's midget forward, s t a r red brilliantly on ofCense, contributing seven of t h e team's nine baskets. Capt. Albers and VandenBrink worked consistently on the defense. Capt Meulenberg of Kazoo thrilled the crowd with his floor work and spectacular shooting. Black, Kalamazoo's veteran forward, shared honors with Meulenberg.


Hope's chances looked r a t h e r poor at the outset. Meulenberg dribbled do\sn the floor f o u r times and counted as many baskets. Hope's first point came when J a p l n g a shot a foul. Black and Meulenberg added two points by the foul route. Kleis brought Hope's ' score to three with a neat short shot. A shift in Hope's line-up sent J a p l n g a to left f o r w a r d a n d Martin to center. Thfa 'new line-up did not prevent Black f r o m scoring a field goal. Martin added a foul. It was now Hope's inning. Ted caged a pretty shot f r o m long r a n g e while Kleis netted two goals f r o m under the basket. The score now stood, Kazoo 13, Hope 12. Japlnga shoved Hope into the lead with a short shot. Black ended t h e half by tying the score 14-14.

It is not only in t h e Glee Club, of course, t h a t these restless people aro found. Restlessness is a common malady, and its victims can be found everywhere. The causes of restless-heartedness a r e m a n y and varied. P e r h a p s one of t h e greatest Is that so m a n y people's m i n d s a r e most active when some one else Is talking or p e r f o r m i n g ; t h e y n a t u r a l l y wish to display their m e n t a l ^ ability, and do so by m e a n s of long, whispered conversations with t h e i r neighbors. A too keen sense of humor, if not properly controlled, may be the cause of a restless heart. T h e r e a r e those who a r e restlesshearted because they maintain t h a t , especially in church, a restless h e a r t Is f a r better than a sleeping one. It is barely possible t h a t some—not Hope College students, of course— are restless hearted merely because they h a t e to a p p e a r too "rigidly righteous." But whatever t h e cause, t h e r e is a superfluity of these restless-hearted individuals; we see t h e m daily in our classcs, at concerts, plays, lectures, and a t almost any public gathering. The result Is inevitably annoying to those who a r e really Interested in t h e p r o g r a m . If only t h e y would at least t r y to put their restless h e a r t s a t rest!
