Waiters " O u t to Lunch" The chairmen of the Annual All-College Sing held in the Civic Center last Saturday evening should be commended for a job well done. The Sing is an excellent idea because it gives the campus social organizations an opportunity to work together and allows the community to attend a worthwhile college event. Because so much effort is put forth by each society and because so many townspeople and parents attend the sing, it is unfortunate that a black shadow should be cast on it by one number. The formal atmosphere was well-preserved until the Freshmen women concluded their song at which point the mood turned, not to the informal, but to the grotesque. Slater Waiters, dressed in most ridiculous "uniforms" took over the stage and created a mood of general disgust with their unusually poor and trite jokes. The slapstick comedy was further carried on by some wierd noise composed of 15 or 20 verses, supposedly a song. Even this type of thing might have been excusable had it been short and to the point. Indeed, some of the quips and puns were good. But repetition of jokes, phrases, and actions only exaggerates the monotony of poor entertainment. Were the tension of competition eased with a clever, humorous skit, it would serve its purpose and be enjoyable. But what happened Saturday night was repulsive. The audience expected Lucille Ball-type pie throwing at any time. Unfortunately, we were not disappointed. When the judges returned halfway through this "special" and sat in the front row, they were greeted with a roll (the kind students are expected to consume in the dormitory) heaved by a "waiter". As if throwing garbage were not enough, some waiter began playing golf with a roll and cane. This garbage throwing climaxed the unoriginal attempt to amuse, leaving a bad impression of Slater Waiters, an embarrassed audience (including judges), and a stage littered with bread. If we expect to be treated as adults, if we are to be allowed to use our own judgment, then this type of incident must be eliminated from the annual Sing. J . R.

How Are Hoose Does Spent? Monday 3/6/61 Today we had our third late minute taken away. Tomorrow it will be four, and so on each day. Why? Because we have refused to pay our dorm dues for this semester. The counselor, the House Council member collecting the dues, the House President—none of them can tell us where all the money from last semester's dues went or where all this semester's money is going. To us, $1.50 times the number of resident women is a lot of money to have disappeared to no one knows where. Neither of us would mind paying the dues were they to be used for purposes beneficial to us. We attend no dorm parties (they only have had one all year and it certainly didn't cost $100!), and we never see the newspaper which is supposed to be at our disposal in Phelps. Why then must we pay them? But more basically, why collect them at all if they are not being used? Where is all the money going? Where has it gone from past semesters when it was not used? Some months ago a letter appeared in The Anchor concerning taking away late minutes for offenses other than lateness. The Dean of Women and the Women's Council and Boards remained silent even after the editor's request for a reply. Could it be that they could not defend their actions? The establishment of the 15 late minutes per semester was a great step ahead and those in charge are to be commended. How do they draw the connection, however, between not paying dues and taking away late minutes at the rate of one a day? Where are these rules available for our inspection? The actions which have been taken against us were not defensible in themselves. Does the previous silence on the matter illuminate the fact that they were not just? Will those involved remain silent now? We await the next issue of The Anchor to see! Yours truly, Lois C. Bonnema Charlotte Curlee

Candidates may also be rated eligible for grade GS-7 if they achieve a high score in the written test and possess either a "B" average or rank in the upper 25 percent of their class. Applicants should take the test as soon as possible in order to have their names entered early on the lists of eligibles. All additional, needed information will be sent after the application has been received.

An Impulsive Action Dear Mr.


Dumping five to fifteen copies of a magazine in a wastebasket (or whatever you did with them) is undoubtedly not an action over which you are likely to have spent hours of indecision. It was rather, apparently, an action of the moment; the product, like most human actions, of a hasty or perhaps almost unconscious decision. In this, you and I are on common ground. No one, facing a situation which appears to demand his immediate response, can retire from life and expect the situation to remain unchanged while he chooses his course of action. But, on the other hand, to act with no regard whatsoever for the consequences of one's actions, is unjustifiable. A man who so acts is called irresponsible, for responsibility consists precisely in this: to act from an awareness of consequences of action, so far as those consequences can be known or surmised or even guessed at. And there, Mr. , is where we part company. To act responsibly is to act defensibly, and it is my contention that you have done neither. This, as accurately as I have been able to determine, is what you did: Slightly more than two weeks ago as this letter is

Note There were two articles in the last issue of Expression magazine that were not signed. This was due to an oversight on the part of the typist. The author of the chapel service was James L. Michmerhuizen, the author of "Comments On the Honor Code" was Robert E. Lee.

published, in the evening, you entered the lobby of Kollen Dorm and went to the desk, where a small stack of Expression magazines had been left with the customary glass jar taking the place of a clerk. You picked up a copy and began leafing through it, perhaps idly, perhaps in search of something. At any rate, you came to a poem on the last page, and your eyes stuck there. The poem, titled "Song That Should Have Music Put To It," appeared to make mockery of your deepest religious beliefs— those which are more or less shared by most of your fellow students,, the faculty, and the administration of Hope College. By this time several other students had gathered around the desk. Most of them felt that the poem was indeed blasphemous; a few disagreed, and a discussion ensued. I am glad for your sake, Mr. , that disagreement and discussion took place. For, had it not taken place, your present position would be exactly that of the leader of a lynching party. As it is, there are more than a few similarities: I suppose that, as is commonly the case with leaders of lynching parties, you would have some difficulty remembering whether it was on your own initiative or at someone else's suggestion, that you confiscated the remaining magazines. I am not at all familiar with lynchings, and can think of no precise equivalent for the fact that you neglected to pay for those copies you took.

This is as much as I know. I do not know, for instance, what you did with those copies of Expression. I don't even know exactly how many there were. But you must agree that these matters are, after all, unimportant. I am puzzled by your action. What did you mean by it? Was it symbolic of an attitude? Certainly it had no practical significance: what did it accomplish ? Did it destroy the poem? No, for there are several hundred copies already sold, and several hundred remaining. Was your failure to pay for the copies you confiscated intended to assert some real or imagined authority you have over printed material on campus? If so, I should appreciate your telling me what office you hold, and why we have not heard of your activities before. Or was it your intention to show, once and for all, that there can be no honor system at Hope? It is with actions as it is with words: they are tools for expressing oneself. Both are intractable, stubborn, wilful. To force them to say what we want them to, is not an easy task. Your action in this matter has been, as I say, puzzling. It does not seem to have been intended as any sort of coherent response at all. As a matter of fact, it appears to me, for a number of reasons, to have been incredibly stupid. (1) It can only have been based on a complete misapprehension of the tone of the poem. "Song That Should Have Music Put To It" is not a particularly good poem; neither, however, is it a coded message that must be specially translated for the ordinary reader. It would not even have been necessary to find out from its author just what he meant. You need only have read the poem carefully aloud, to discover that, in its own way, it is as bitter an attack on the Lauderdale-for-Easter attitude as you could have wished. (2) It was self - evidently hasty and ill-considered. Whatever office you may or may not« hold, you exceed your authority. The fact that some of the students present realized that the poem was not blasphemous, should have introduced a degree of caution into your action. (3) Suppose for a moment that the poem actually had been blasphemous; is evil in this world so all-powerful that one half-page poem can outweigh the five-page chapel service that was printed elsewhere in the magazine? Would it not have been better simply to rip the last page form each copy? Enough. Your action, hasty, ill-considered, touched with an aura of illegality, useless, has been shown finally to be ludicrous and inappropriate. If, however, I have misstated any pertinent facts, or if I have omitted any, or if you in any way wish to defend your action, I invite a reply in the pages of this newspaper. If you do not wish to defend yourself, you may apologize on paper, privately or publicly as you wish, both to the author of the poem and to the editor of Expression. Very sincerely yours, James L. Michmerhuizen

Our Cultural Lag EHerts Others!

P. &

by Carol Sikkema "Riots in Japan Threaten President's Life!" "Allies worried About Decline of American Prestige!" "Soviets Attack United Nations over Lumumba's Death!" These representative headlines are bscoming far too common and they all reveal that there is something startling wrong with America's foreign policy. It is time we look at our problems in an overall perspective to improve the basic policy rather than just stressing those of individual countries after trouble has started.

A Cultural Lag William F. Ogburn introduced his theory of cultural lag by referring to it as "a situation in which one part or phrase of culture lags behind another and causes imbalance or disharmony in society." We live in a period of revolutionary change in every aspect of life, and it has also been a period of decay which challenges us to once again begin a building up process. For too long a period our policy has been one of reaction instead of construction. Part of this has been due to cultural lag. Dean Acheson, former Secretary of State, in a seminar with our semester group stressed his view that we in America are living like our great great grandmothers in the stable nineteenth century. According to Acheson, "Our world is dead! Dead as a duck, but yet it is still going around!" Our "spectacles" for looking at the world are still focused through the memories of power being based in six European countries. We have been much too slow to realize that power has been moving Eastward, which has not left a vacuum, but a mass of chaos. We no longer have a "balance of power, but a balance of terror."

Under-developed Countries Important The problem of cultural lag is especially significant in our relations with under-developed countries. The central problem is one in which the people have a desire for progress, but there is a wrench as they often have a stronger desire to keep their past values. This can be clearly demonstrated in the case of Afghanistan where the citizens want modern factories, but they refuse to work in them as they might get their hands dirty. Also many of the leaders in under-developed countries suffer from a degree of schizophrenia as they must intricately balance their wishes to improve their respective countries, but on the other hand they cannot afford to loose touch with their people as rebellion will be the only result it too many changes are made too fast. Rostow in his excellent book "Stages of Economic Growth" points out that we must be aware of these lags in our own country and more importantly in the under-developed countries. The emphasis of our aid should be in helping these countries through a program of continuity and consistency from one stage of development to the next and not just when they are in the "take off stage."

Two Schools of Internation Relations Closely inter-related and inherent with this problem of cultural lag is the basic controversy between two schools of theory in international relations. The first group feels that our policy should be built on the principles of morality, and the course of action should always be based on furthering the objectives of independence, freedom, peace, friendliness, and a belief in justice. The roots of such a policy would be found in the values of democratic nations with the policy being directed by and for the interest of the people involved. The weaknesses which ramify from this school is its unrealistic nature, and the creation of inflexibility by building an image of a moralistic nation which in many instances does not advance the chances for survival. The second theory is that of realism, and this group argues that there is danger if we deal in abstracts and do not actively function in specific areas. This school also emphasizes that if a moralistic image is built up, but is in fact untrue, the world will suffer from more shock similar to that experience with the U-2 incident. There does seem to be a practical answer in this controversy, and our hopes for improving our international relations seems to rest in accepting this compromise between moralism and realism. Dr. Charles Fenwick, leading international lawyer of the Organization of American States in a discussion of this compromise, and proposed a plan in which we would start in our relations by working with common people in sanitation, housing, and education projects. In this way realistic goals could be achieved in an atmosphere of ultimate moralistic goals. It should be remembered that progress is slow, but we should meet our chalenges with "firm determinim and high idealism."

Next Birthday Party to Be lues. Once again on March 14, at 5:30 p.m., the Julianna room will be transformed into a party atmosphere for boarding students with birthdays in March, June and July. The birthday party last month was for those with birthdays in December, January and February. The theme, Mardi Gras, was carried out by decorations of a net full of gayly colored balloons, streamers and ticker tape. The menu consisted of grape juice, shrimp cocktail,

pate de foie de poulet, southern fried chicken, peas and cauliflower, steamed yams and relishes. For dessert ice cream puffs were served. Dinner music was provided by a Hope College combo. The nine piece combo played everything from soft, sweet music to Dixieland. Three people received a birthday cake and 7-Up to take home. The 141 guests at the party took home a small box of chocolates as a birthday present.
