Gerrit Wesselink won second place in the Michigan Oratorical League contest held at Kalamazoo college on Friday, March 6. Hope's representative overcame the disadvantages of being last speaker and was bested only by the experience and the talent of the Albion speaker, Mr. J u d son. Kalamazoo College took third place with Mr. Babbitt as its representative.

Hope vindicated its reputation in oratory circles. Under Prof. NyO kerk s able guidance, Hope orators have placed high in the M. Q. L. contests for t h e last fifteen years.

EXERCISE President Coolidge takes his exercise, riding on an iron horse. It must be a skillful machine to give the three different paces merely by pressing the right switch. Besides it eliminates all the hazards and upsets of riding. Convnient, too, stops when one pleases, and goes as " f a r " as. one might like. Thoroly scientific—the kilogram centimeters of work should be as easy to determine as the calories In any diet. It makes one think of the famous dozen of Walter Gamp. Ten times one way, ten times back; a few deep breaths and you a r e ready for the day. Fine! Or the game called golf— "It's wonderful you know out in the open, and walking is great exercise and you just hustle a f t e r t h e ball. By the way, that drive f r o m the secoond tee, you must watch. Better use a floater; slice a little if you can do it, but don't get excited." Such exercise takes on the' coat of modern paint. Foolisb^arbitnary rules; synthetic hazards; an absurd little ball that must roll into a four inch cup; half a dozen shining sticks which are swung by the golf appareled devotee. But where was the h u m a n race born? Was It reader by the calorie, and exercised by Walter Camp? And in its youth did it play golf and ride "iron horses?" There was a time when the only game was living—for x the winner, life; for the loser, death. Someway It's hard to imagine Roosevelt riding that iron horse (ft* Lincoln measuring his food for calorie content. Washington, when he was a young man, might have made a golf fan but he was too busy with his surveying.

Its need a r e met. But how can a red-blooded American be developed by such exercise that does not try his steel? There is no penalty for losing, no reward f o r winning; often there is no conflict a t all. The elements a r e dodged —not met. Privations are reduced to a minimum. The man is condemned who takes a chance, and relies upon himself to meet the difficulties t h a t may arise. As important as exercise, is this training to meet t h e opposing force and best it; to master the Inferior brute mind; to t h w a r t the elements; to gamble, life for life.

Her team of 1917 had a peculiar year in t h a t they lost but one g a m e on the home floor, and won but one g a m e abroad. The following year, 1918, saw the state championship hide under Hope's belt and stay there. 1905 won 7 out of 8 1916 won 10 out of 17 1917 won 7 out of 15 1918 won 6 out of 11 1919 won 8 out of 12 1020 won 9 out of 10 1921 won 15 out of 22 1922 won 10 out of 1923 • won 10 out of 21 1924 won 10 out of 18 1925 won 10 out of 13 Schedule of 1918 State Champ.

THE LITTLE THINGS The purpose of this column is to entertain the readers of the Anchor by means of happy and interesting comments upon different phases of campus life or upon subjects brought to mind by something seen on the campus. W h a t Hope needs is a bigger and better mustache league. The tiny mustaches continue to a p p e a r but at the same time others a r e dlsappedrig again. Don't be discouraged fellows, the co-eds like them. One girl said that a certain mustache on the campus has tickled her more than once.

The bust of the great Greek warrior AJax which reposes in the southeast corner of the library reading room, has undergone a startling change. Ordinarily you would not observe it but upon closer observation you would be shocked indeed. Oh, those eyes, those eyes! They a r e terrible; they m a k e the shivers go right down your back. One would almost think t h a t the statue itself has gone insane in memory of the great h e r . it represents who, you remembet, went mad with anger at Ulysses. If you are not too timid you might notice the old boy the next time you are in the library.

Personally, the most interesting kind of bells to me are the "belles." They too can m a k e us sad or happy. But I'll talk more about them some other time.

It is f u n y how the facial fashion for men changes as the yeans go by. The day of Washington and Jefferson was a smooth faced period; during tho Civil War, beards were fashionable; and now, by cracky, the era of the "mis-placed eyebrow" seems to be coming into its own.

Charles L a m b calls the sound oi bells 'Hhe music nighest bordering on heaven." P e r h a p s he is right. We all agree a t least when that sound pronounces the end of a class period. Speaking of bells, did you ever slop and t h i n k w h a t a great part they play iu our lives. We couldn't begin to n a m e all the kinds of bells t h e r e are in use today. In size they range f r o m the tiny sleigh bell to the bell of Moscow 19 feet high, CO in circumference, weighing 220 tons. This bell was cracked when still in the foundry and is now used as a chapel, the crackea piece serving as a door. It is interesting to note also the way in which different kinds of bells affect us. They can make us sau, happy, alarmed or meloncholy. This is well brought out by Poe in "The Bells."

Aroused from a refreshlnff sleep by t n e welcomed chime of hte Big Dan, "the clock that says good morning." I hopped briskly into my bathrobe and thence to the bathroom, spurred by pleasurable anticipation of a satisfying shave with "Woodgate's C h u m my Cream," " I m p a r t s t h a t vitalizing feeling." Then a d j u s t i n g my Jewel Safety razor, "every stroke an Inspiration," I concluded t h e now joyful morning rite. Hy this time, my bath being ready, I generously applied a cake of life guard soap. "Ambition's Ablewt Ally." resulting In that healthful glow so greatly to be desired. Filled with exhilaration, I proceeded to don my klose-wove underwear and trim-fit hose, "Failure's Fiercest Foes," topping it off with a neatly pressed suit of kollege-kut clothes. "Observe the Type who wear them." As the hour was still early, T decided against taking -the bins, electing instead to walk, since my shoes were newly fitted with kushion-kurled heels, "A Step toward Success." Arriving at Duke'« Cafe I leisurely disposed of a bowl filled with nature flakes, "The Better Drain Builder," followed by a cup of coffee substitute, "Mike's Keen Minds."

"that drives all sleep away," and waited f u r t h e r developments.
