Theological Seminary. Sunday evening the eminent theologian will begin the activities of a busy fourday visit here by meeting members of the Hope College faculty. He will lead the regular chapel worship services on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday using as themes f o r his meditations Faith, Sacrifice, and Boldness. Monday at 10:30 a.m. Dr. Piper and ministers from Holland and vicinity will have an opportunity to become acquainted at a coffee kletz in the Dutch Mill restaurant. He will present addresses on the Power of God at *4 p.m. on March 14 and 15 in the Hope Memorial Chapel. At a joint meeting of Alpha Chi and the Adelphic Society on Monday evening the Princeton professor will discuss the problems of "Contihental" and Western theology, with special reference to the debate of Barth and Niebuhr. Tuesday evening he will be the fifth speaker in the current Y-sponsored Christian Service Series to deal with the subject Christianity and Scholarship. The visiting professor will address faculty and students of Western Theological Seminary and any other interested persons Wednesday at 9:45 a.m. in Nettinga Memorial Chapel; his subject will likely be Faith and Ethics. Dr. Piper was born in central Germany in 1891 and served in the German army during the first World War. He took an active part in the German Church conflict when the Nazis came into power in 1933, and, as a result of a course of lectures on Church and State in which he boldly affirmed the rights of the Church, he was deprived of his chair in the University of Muenster-in-Westphalia and had to leave Germany. Before that he had studied philosophy and theology in Jena, Marburg, Munich, and Goetingen and had received his D.D. in Paris. He was Instructor and Professor of Theology in the Universities of Goettingen and Muenster, 19201933. He succeeded Karl Barth when the latter left Muenster for Bonn. From 1920 to 1932 he travelled extensively in France for research on the relation of religious and social activities in contemporary France. He was delegate to the ecumenical c o n f e r e n c e s on Faith and Order at Lousonne, 1927, and Edinburgh, 1937, and to the international conference on Church, Community and State at Oxford in 1937. After leaving G e r m a n y , Dr. Piper spent four years in the university colleges of Swansea and Bangor, Wales. In 1937 he was invited to become guest professor at Princeton Theological Seminary, where he has taught since. He is the author of "Recent Developments in German Protestantism," "God in History," and other books. o

Students Overwhelmingly Reject System Of Dining

Dr. Otto Pippr

Hopeites To Give Recital March 22

Hope students overwhelmingly rejected the present dining-system in a poll recently taken by the Anchor. 10.9% of those voting indicated a desire for the retention of the present system. 70.5% voted for the cafeteria system. However, it seems as though confusion was present on the third question. Some students voted for both questions numbers 2 and 3. (37.4% voted for the combination system which would bring the percentage to 120% instead of 100%. Many who voted for straight cafeteria also voted for the combination system whereas these two questions were meant to be exclusive.)

One individual voted f o r the cafeteria system but then added, "The lastmentioned item makes me reluctant to vote for cafeteria style.

Man About Campus

A f t e r completing studies under the f a m o u s John Dwight Sample of Chicago, he fulfilled engagements all over the Middle West. He has sung with the Chicago Opera Company, the Chicago Civic Orchestra, The Apollo Musical Club and other great choral organizations. Once he was called in on short notice to learn the role of Krushina in "Bartered Bride." In response, he did so in forty-eight hours.

A f t e r the concert a reception will be held at Walsh Music Hall for the special guests of both soloists. Paul's first group will include "Honor and Arms," from "Samson," H a n d e l ; "Erinnerung," Brahms; "Der Wanderer," Schubert, and "Vision Fugitive," Massenet. His second group will be "Dio Possenti," f r o m " F a u s t , " Gounod. His last group will consist of "If I Were King of Ireland," Foster; "I Would My Song Were Like a Star," Kursteiner; "Blind Eyes," Eakin, and "My Song Is of the Sturdy North," German. Phyllis will begin her numbers with "Amor Commanda," "Handel," "Fiocca La Neve," Comara; "Wie Melodien Zieht Es Mis," Brahms, and "Meine Liebe ist Grun," Brahms. For her second group Phyllis will sing " J e Suis Titania," from "Mignon," Thomes. As her final group she will sing, "Tell Me, Oh Blue Blue Sky," Vittorio Giannini; "Little Polly Flinders," J. Diack; "The Teakettle's Song," Victor Young, and "Come, Love, with Me," Vito Carnevali.

An interesting little note is the fact that his accompanist is his wife, Martha McCormick, who was his accompanist previous to their marriage. More recently he has been featured soloist at the Chicagoland Music Festival before 90,000 people. He sang Verdi's "Requiem" with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra under Fabren Sevitzky. This evening his program will be presented in five groups as follows: Charlie (the man tcith the hike) "There goes Charlie on his bike," is a familiar saying on Hope's campus. It began back in 1936 when Charles Holkeboer first came to work on his bicycle.

But "Charlie's" days at Hope started long before this. In 1903, To conclude the program the two as a boy of seven, he carried his soloists will sing a duet, "Love Is f a t h e r ' s lunch to the campus and Meant to Make Us Glad," E. did small odd jobs to help. His German. father, a native of the Netherlands, began work at Hope in 1903 and remained until his death in 1936.

Hope-ives To Have First Formal Party Since the organizing of the Hope-ives Club on Hope's Campus, the big question has been, "How can we have a formal party similar to that of the other clubs, societies, e t c . ? " The answer has come. There has always been the problem of baby sitters, finance, and a time when both husbands and wives are free to spend an evening out together. On the evening of March 11, immediately following the All-College Sing, the HOPEIVES will have their first formal party "Irish Dream-Pipes" in the Veterans ballroom. There will be games planned by Mrs. Harold E. Dykstra; Refreshments Committee: Mrs. Harold O'Schaible, Mrs. David O'CoIeman. The hall will be decorated in Irish colors by Mrs. David O'Hoogerhyde and Mrs. Ernest O'Meeusen. Mrs. Bill Flaherty acts as general chairman.

Mr. John Mac Donald uses and glee clubs during his high school days. At Northwestern University he developed into a bass and sang there as soloist for the glee club and in Dean Lutkin's famous A Capella choir.

Paul is a junior from Oostburg, Wisconsin, a member of the Men's Glee Club, the Chapel Choir, and Musical Arts Club. He is also a pupil of Mrs. Baughman.

"Charlie," as a young boy, had his apprentice training with his f a t h e r and starting in 1910 the two worked full time taking charge of the maintenance and carpenter work of the school. The work of the two men covers a period in which five presidents have been at Hope. In 1922 "Charlie" and his father purchased a Model T Ford and drove this back and forth each day until 1936. Then he bought the bicycle which he still uses today. Last year in April he bought a Model A Ford and now when bad weather threatens and during the winter he uses that.

roller-skating to the accompaniment of music. A f t e r some false starts on this idea, the two " Y " organizations on the campus have jointly taken up the project and are vigorously pushing plans toward the goal of "getting things rolling." On February 17, a committee, composed of Irene Heemstra and Dan Hakken as co-chairmen, Howard Newton as secretary, Pauline Hendrieth, Lorraine Drake, and Don Ihrman, met with Dr. Lubbers at the Warm Friend Tavern to discuss the problem of getting a place for week-end roller skating for Hope students. With the backing of Dr. Lubbers, the committee checked on every possibility and came out with the permission to use Carnegie Gym for skating on Friday and Saturday nights. Sample skates have been ordered from which will be chosen the type of skate desired, and 100 pairs of the same will be purchased. It is planned to fix a skate room at the east end of the gym underneath what was formerly the stage. Arrangements are also being made to provide appropriate music f o r the skaters. This new venture will be run as a business establishment by the two "Y" organizations and a nominal admissions fee will be charged to cover the cost of keeping the floor and skates in good condition. It is hoped that skaters will be able to start rolling early this spring. Needed with this new project is some one or more fellows to serve as a regular skate manager. Anyone having a little experience and desire for this type of work is asked to see one of the co-chairmen, Irene Heemstra or Dan Hakken.

Miss Marian Van Home Will Be Campus Guest On March 15 and 16 Miss Marian Van Home, secretary for young people's work in the Reformed churches, will be on our campus, as guest of the Y.W.C.A. She will speak Tuesday evening at the Y.W.C.A. meeting on "Youth Caravans" and the work young people are doing in the Reformed Churches today. Miss Van Home will be here Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning and any students desiring private conferences with her should contact Judy Mulder or Burrell Pennings.

Press Freedom . . . But The Anchor editorial policy has come in for criticism with the recent publication of Anchors and the problems considered in them. This criticism did not come from the student body. (Students themselves took a lively interest since their problems were being discussed openly and frankly, with little punch-pulling.) Perhaps, it is not out of order to make a defense of our policy in this matter. The first issue of the Anchor last fall carried an editorial entitled, "Editorial Policy" from which we wish to quote the following statement: "The place for student opinion to be aired is in the student newspaper where everyone can appraise it. Letters should be signed since the editor reserves the right to reject an unsigned letter. All communications are subject to editing and rejection . . We made that policy and still stand behind it. However, that statement should not be construed to mean that whatever goes into the paper goes in with our endorsement of sentiment. (This seems to be the attitude of some.) The reason the editorial staff refused to cut or reject the recent communications is a very simple one. The Anchor staff still believes in a somewhat trite doctrine called the freedom of the press. We interpret that phrase in the light of Dr. Bavinck's statement, which he made on this campus some time ago, "freedom is the privilege to do what we ought." We believe the "ought" of our freedom lies in being fair. We offer the same space to anyone wishing to present an answer to any of the criticisms printed. We'll match answer with criticism — column inch for column inch! To us, that's being fair and open and above board. If it isn't, a letter might straighten us up. (The printing of a criticism of Anchor policy is also included in our conception of "fair.") Beliefs are always desired until they mean discomfort to the holder. Democracy is superb until d r a f t calls come. Political liberality is to be desired until it affects us adversely. Freedom of the press is wonderful until we become the loser. The statements expressed last week bore out this contention. Those being affected were already saying, "freedom of the press, b u t . . F a c u l t y skip chapel, smoking goes on in rooms with combustible floors and the dining system is questioned . . . these are fair criticisms. If they can be answered fairly, let's do so! But in the meantime, let's stop rationalizing! It's either freedom of the press or it isn't freedom of the press. There are no buts. You believe in it or you don't. Which shall it be?

The Students Speak

This world of cut-throat competition and dog-eat-dog in which we find ourselves today sees us sending cheers up to the person who has triumphed and won in the battle of rivalry. It is the man who has won the most power over his fellowmen, the man who has obtained large numbers of possessions, the man who has the greatest notoriety that we pay homage to, and stand admiring his successes, cesses. To the man who has triumphed over his fellowmen, whether it is a success of athletics, grades, money, position or possession, goes the world acclaim. But how many have risen only by pushing a fellow man down? Is the person who has


SH?? C a m p u s i M a U b o x Editor's Note: Dr. Lubbers has a file in his office which he t e r m s "The nut-house" file. The most recent accretion to this file is the letter t h a t follows. Lansing, Michigan February 28, 1949 President of Hope College Hope College Holland, Michigan Dear Sir: During the last war a vicious propaganda attack was launched by the people of English origin against the Dutch in the United States. Due to the f a c t t h a t this propaganda was a failure in the United States where the Dutch people lived and even hundreds of miles from where they lived only the leaders of the Teutonics know this attack was launched against them. The other Teutonics, Swedes, Norwegians, Danes, Belgium and Swiss organized powerful armies to go to t h e aid of the Dutch and so they know of this attack. The Teutonics then demanded a country of their own because they realized it would be impossible for the English and Teutonics to live together any longer. C o n g r e s s agreed to this and negotiations are almost complete to separate the United States into two nations. The leaders of the Teutonics think only they and the members of Congress know of these negotiations. The men they are negotiating are members of the English underground and so are many other members of Congress. They tell the underground everything that goes on so millions of Americans know of these negotiations. The Teutonics thinks none of the members of the Masonic lodge are members of the underground. Actually a large per cent of the English members of the Masonic lodge belong to the underground, although the leaders are strongly opposed to it.

The results of the Anchor-conducted poll (page 1) indicate a definite trend in Hopeite thought. However, we are not certain of the exact scope of the conclusions which these data warrant or imply. An examination of the facts shows that the alternatives of choice in the poll were neither mutually exclusive nor exhaustive; other possibilities of selection still exist. For the purposes of this investigation only the systems that had been mentioned by students were considered. The voting was not conducted on an absolutely scientific basis; tallies are not completely representative. To guard the validity of our generalizations we must restrict them to the limitations of the evidence. But we may assert (with due regard for the limitations shown by our analysis) that the poll indicates students are dissatisfied with the present dining hall system, recognize that more effective facilities are possible, desire to pay only for the meals they eat, and feel t h a t devotions are not dependent upon one method of serving food. Now that the students have spoken in this imperfect but indicative manner, we feel that concrete information regarding possible techniques of serving meals should be investigated; opinion is not a replacement for but a supplement to fact. Our appraisal of the poll, when considered concurrently with evidence of recent letters, statements, and actions on the campus, may imply that students desire a closer harmony among students, faculty, and administration. A recent announcement by the Student Council of plans for the revision of the council constitution may indicate that this body is ready to become a more active and representative organization. It seems natural that such a student body should be an effective channel for a direct interchange of ideas among students, faculty, and administration. The establishment of an improved method for such interchange might be a permanent improvement in the functional structure of Hope College. W.B.S.

Success Evaluated


When the division of the United States i n t o t w o n a t i o n s is announced the English underground will again go into action. This daywill be known as M — or mobilization day and each member must be at his post not only to kill but also to lie. They have mortgaged the shirts off their backs and hired many members of other nationalities to help them by paying them money but also promising them the Teutonics f a r m s and houses. They intend to kill men, women and cnildren. They have the names and addresses of all the Teutonics in every city and each member is told who they must kill. This attack will s t a r t the minute the news of the division of the country is announced and before the people have a chance to hear the truth. The members of the underground will tell them to a split second when this news will be on each street corner. The news will be released on Saturday so no one will be at work. They intend to say they are killing the Teutonics for patriotic reasons because they committed treason during the war. They intend to accuse the Teutonics of being in control of the fleet at Pearl Harbor and putting it in a position where the Japanese coulc easily sink it. They intend to say the Teutonics went to Washington the next day and demanded a country of their own, threatening to form an alliance with J a p a n and make the rest of the country a colony of J a p a n ' s if their demands were not met. The Dutch people should be told of the first attack and this attack. The other Teutonics should be told of this attack, they know of the first one. The greatest danger is not m Holland where the g r e a t majority of the people a r e Teutonics but in those a r e a s where the Teutonics are only a small minority. The other Teutonics will know who is attacking them and why the Dutch won't. Letters must be sent to other cities where there are Teutonics telling them of this attack. The Teutonic leaders negotiating in Washington must be told of this attack. They trust the men with whom they are negotiating and do not know they are being led into a death trap. Literature m u s t be distributed throughout the United States tell-

ing the people the truth. When people know the t r u t h such attacks will be impossible. The leaders of the Teutonics wanted to distribute literature throughout the country giving the reason f o r the propaganda attack but were talked out of it by the government officials who said we will explain the whole thing when the division of the country is announced. If we put the literature out now it will cause too much friction between the English and Dutch. Due to the f a c t t h a t I am notifying the members of congress of this attack the underground can no longer wait until the division of the country is announced before they attack. They might strike now before the government has a chance to stop them. Sincerely yours, C O R N E L I U S LA ROY Respected and my dear sir, . . . I am glad and thankful to you for the great effort you undertook on our behalf in the recent drive at Hope College. In this short letter I shall just try to give you the essence of all our aspirations f o r our Hope High School. We, the managing committee of Hope high school in Madanapolle, express ourselves in deep gratitude to the Hope college student body and Dr. I. J . Lubbers, its president, f o r their great interest in us which has at present materialized in the gift of $2,200 . . . in helping us to realize the reviving of Hope high school to be a center for preparing our Christian leaders for the f u t u r e of our growing church in the Telugu area.

hees, but a t Temple it's an entirely different m a t t e r . We would venture to say t h a t a t every meal each one of us sees two or three people who do not belong at either dining hall. And what do we do about it? First, we say nothing to t h a t individual; second, we would not divulge the name of that individual to the administration; third, we go home and complain about it. How very typically American and "Hope College-an"! T h a t the condition is itself wrong, dishonest, contrary to our religion and society is self-evident. 4 We would not present this probem without attempting a solution, irst, we should talk to t h a t individual personally and point out to him t h a t his conduct is contrary to a Christian f a i t h and is a form of dishonesty. A possible second solution is eliminated by the fact that none of us w a n t s to "squeal" on these people, although this is probably our responsibility. Third, we would suggest that the dining lall administration take some very definite steps to keep a close check on which students are eating at the dining halls — even if this should involve bringing our dining tickets to each meal. When we first came to Hope College, we marvelled at a dining hall system where the tickets were not checked. How convincingly Christian is such system! Unfortunately here at Hope it is also paradoxical.

In the past the high school served the interests of the children of pastors and catechists . while the village Christian was completely blind to the values of Christian education or perhaps averse to the very idea of education itself . . . Now the villagers have opened their eyes and are struggling to get this education for their children at a cost which . . . is really starving for them. Further, sir, there is in fact dearth of Christian educated and devoted servants in our field and I am one who strongly believes in the training of these f u t u r e servants in our own portals if we really want to imbibe into them the ideals of sacrifice and service f o r our Master's kingdom. M. Barnabas Hope Middle School Madamapalle, Chittoor District Madras Py. S. India Editor's Note: The above are portions of a letter received by Dr Lubbers. On /Jining Hall Conduct Dear Editor: Since one of the purposes of this column is to air our grievances, it is before you that we wish to lay some problems which have been upon our minds. This letter will be somewhat of a follow-up to the "bombardment" which the dining hall administration received in this column of the last issue of the Anchor. However, the contents of this letter are directed toward both the administration and the stu dent body. The first grievance that we wish to get off our chests is very aptly illustrated by a scene that o c c u r m at Voorhees' Dining Hall on Valen tine's Day. This dormitory is com fortably set up to feed 176 stu dents. However, on this particular day about 186 students showed up for lunch. The house director, in a speech made a t that meal, very rightly reprimanded those students who had Temple tickets and had taken the privilege to attend our other dining hall. We wonder what she would have thought had a count of meal tickets been taken, and the number of those who had no meal tickets been determined (not because they had forgotten them, but rather, because they never had them to begin with—in other words—they were supposedly not boarding with the school for this semester). Now this condition is not seen too often a t Voor-

won the "A" the one to be admired when he refuses to aid the friend with the "D"? Is the person who has won j the advantage at the other person's expense the one to extol? Is it the man who has won who needs encouragement? Not to be the apple of the crowd's eye, not to be the object of flashy newspaper copy, but just to be a person who has done his very best and has seen the other man

Secondly, we have some strong feelings toward the general discourteous atmosphere that exists during devotions at the Temple Building. One night last week the house director of the dining hall got up to make an announcement because there was no one to lead devotions. She suggested that we repeat the Lord's Prayer. Immediately, there was an outcry from one table, "Let's sing!!" This was followed by general laughter that lasted at least through "Give us this day our daily bread." This kind of occurrence has been happening all year, and we think that it is high time that students wake up to these examples of rudeness and do something about them. College students should have learned how to be courteous and how to respect those who are in authority. The head waiters have warned certain individuals, but still they persist. Vulgarity and profanity are not unusual at one or two tables (even through the reading of the Holy Scriptures and the P r a y e r ) ! This definitely must be stopped! Could we not get the talking out of our systems before it is time to p r a y ? It should not have to continue during devotions. We should not be irreverent or indifferent in our Christian duties. We are on a Christian campus. Is this our way of testifying and setting an example before others? Are these favorable impressions to leave with our visitors? Couldn't we just enter, and a f t e r the bell has rung once, not half a dozen times, stop talking, take our seats, and turn our attention toward what the devotional leader is saying. Thirdly, there is the problem of entering the dining hall safely. The minute the door opens it is as if a shot were being fired and a herd of cattle were stampeding f o r the tables. What would happen if someone fell? He or she would either be trampled upon, or there would be a "pile-up," or some other major catastrophe. We don't always seem f a r sighted enough to see the outcome of our actions. Could we not walk without pushing and shoving? Above all, let's cooperate in the little things, those little acts of courtesy observed in a true Christian. Let's stop compromising and live up to the ideals f o r which we are supposed to stand. In conclusion, we should like to challenge both the students and dining hall administration into an active expression of their opinions on these matters, possibly through this column. Following this, we should like to see something done about them! Howard Newton B u r t Phillips

walk off with the prize and win the goal is deserving of admiration. To try one's best and miss the mark, to give all and receive nothing, and still face life with cheerfulness, kindness and optimism is a triumph. To rejoice in another's success and be happy in knowing that he has done his best is the real sign of victory. The sin is not in missing the goal; the sin is in not trying. — "The Graphic," George Pepperdine College, Los Angeles.

Kappa Delta Funds To Support Leper Mrs. DePree spoke a t the February 21 meeting of Kappa Delta. She showed us maps, pictures and costumes along with her very interesting talk on China. The girls also had a birthday p a r t y at which time they each gave one cent for each year of their age. About $5.00 was contributed. Envelopes were given to the members f o r f u r t h e r contributions, which will be collected in April f o r the Kappa Delta project. The week before the March meeting was set aside as "Sacrifice Week." At this time, the girls will give up all cokes, sundaes, candy bars, etc., and the money which is usually spent in this way will be given for our project. The idea of all the contributions, birthday p a r t y , and "Sacrifice Week" is to raise enough money to support a Leper f o r one year. For the April meeting the girls plan to pack a box of used clothing, toys, games, etc., to send to a domestic mission station. The meeting ended with the "Officers' T r e a t " of home-made candy which was delicious!

Dykstra, Brunsting Fail To Win Honors Hope College failed to win honors in the Annual Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League. However the contest was a close one for the Hope contestants. Wayne University representatives won first places in both the women's and men's contests. Michigan Normal won second place in both contests. Western Michigan won the women's t h i r d place award. Miss Lucille Brunsting, Hope's representative, survived the preliminaries and received a "first" vote from one of the five judges in the finals. In the men's contest, William Dykstra tied with the Kalamazoo college representatives. An attempt made to break the t i e by the re-ranks method failed. (Reranks is a second judging with the judges considering only the two tied contestants.) The percentage basis was then restored and Dykstra was beaten by 5r,f of the vote cast.

WAS To Feature Biblical Portrayal

Education For What? Among the m o s t i m p o r t a n t things he learned in college, the late Robert Benchley listed the trick of putting one paper bag inside another to make a milk shake container, and turning socks inside out to make the holes appear in different places. Many college students today can match Benchley's list, for they have found that if you sit in a lecture with hundreds of other students three times a week, you can write letters home, knit nine pairs of socks, and graduate a f t e r about four years. In an article entitled, "Needed: A College Revolution," now appearing in the February Coronet, Dr. Harold Taylor, president of Sarah Lawrence College, calls for drastic action to reform our "assembly line educational system" i*nd "return to the real purpose of liberal education, which is to educate the individual liberally." In the last 40 years, points out Taylor, the individual student has disappeared in our college education upheaval, lost in anonymity. Vet in our world of tensions and conflicts, it is crucial that our educational system protect the fundamental needs of the individual.

With hundreds of others, he attends lectures where the professor speaks over a microphone to overflow crowds. He studies his texts and marks machinegraded exam papers in a process devoid of any personal element, or the cultivation of new ideas and enthusiasms. "I contend that the student is being cheated," says Taylor. "This is not college — and it is not liberal education." Dr. Taylor maintains that drastic action is needed if college education is to answer fundamental needs rather than become one massive quiz program. "The problems, of course, will not be solved until we double the number of teachers and until we bring into the teaching profession the best young college graduates. To do so, we must spend double the present amount of money, and begin to make each college a place where an exciting life of ideas and action is lived by those who teach," says Taylor.

With t h e basketball season over, we poked a r o u n d in the score book to find out what t h e boys had done a s a t e a m and individually. The team scored 993 points in 17 g a m e s for an offensive a v e r a g e of about 58'/i p o i n t s per g a m e . T h i s included 404 field goals and 185 f r e e throws. T h e " F T M " column in the scoring box shown on t h e p a g e r e p r e s e n t s " F r e e T h r o w s Missed." This made the t e a m p e r c e n t a g e on f r e e t h r o w s 53.27r. Vande W e g e had t h e highest individual percentage h i t t i n g 6 5 ^ .
