Dear Editor, " O u r world is in a d e s p e r a t e plight t o d a y . I sincerely believe Christian f a i t h for both individuals and social o r g a n i z a t i o n s is the only answer." Such a s t a t e m e n t is, one t h a t needs no defence, neither does it give any who are willing t o t h i n k about C h r i s t i a n i t y a basis f o r any a r g u m e n t in any f o r m . To make a peace, g a i n h a p p i n e s s or c r e a t e a l a s t i n g good-will w i t h o u t the Prince of Peace is like t r y i n g to make a c h e r r y pie and r e f u s i n g to use cherries. It cannot be done. But to s a y t h a t C h r i st i a n i t y m u s t change to meet the needs of each succeeding generation is foolish and without merit. It is not the place of C h r i s t to c h a n g e his doctrine so t h a t it will be suitable " f o r twentieth c e n t u r y s t u d e n t s . " In the f i r s t place when Christ came to t h i s world as the Son of man, he f o u n d people of all nations committing the vilest f o r m s of heinous sin; m u r d e r , t h e f t s , idolatry, those w i t h o u t any gods, a d u l t r y and b'lasphemy a g a i n s t his very person, the Son of the Living God. Should he h a v e given t h e m a law whereby t h e y would be g r a n t e d the right to commit these t h i n g s ? No! He held a "rigid, conservative, f u n d a m e n t a l i s t conception." of God's Word upon which C h r i s t i a n ity is based, built and preserved. It is not t h e place of Christ to change the spirit of the t i m e s but it is up to us, as 'born a g a i n ' in t h e tried and t r u e method, to change the spirit of the times to Christ. It is not C h r i s t i a n i t y t h a t needs to be r e f o r m e d but the world. Can you r e f o r m a nation f r o m one type of g o v e r n m e n t , be it what it may, to a n o t h e r type of government by t e l l i n g the nation t h a t what it is d o i n g is alright and they can keep on doing the s a m e if they will only t a k e the name of 'Christ i a n ' ? It does not m a k e any difference w h a t they do, it will be suitable b e c a u s e C h r i s t i a n i t y is formed on a ' C h a n g i n g law'. One t h a t can be made to conform to anybody's individual ideas. Christianity is a method of Life to which anyone can conform his or her ideas w i t h o u t becoming in any manner "blind and i n d i f f e r e n t to social e t h i c s " . If we a r e to say C h r i s t i a n i t y is impractical t h a t is one thing, and if we are t o say thdt .religion is impractical, t h a t is a n o t h e r . Christianity is s o m e t h i n g which cannot be explained fully in words but it must be explained also In actions. Christian is t h a t name given to those who love Christ and His comm a n d m e n t s and are willing to follow in His s t e p s and to be directed in all t h a t t h e y do by Him. Christianity was given by God without any one of us deserving it. Because people call this land of ours 'Christian', it does not m e a n t h a t they have C h r i s t but it m e a n s t h a t they have a false conception of t h e t r u e m e a n i n g of C h r i s t i a n i t y . Religion is a n y f o r m of w o r s h i p to any person, place or t h i n g . It was never m e a n t to give s a t i s f a c tion of any s o r t but to f u r t h e r t h e f a v o r of t h o s e who i n s t i g a t e d it. W a r s , turmoils, bickerings, envys, s t r i f e s , h a t i n g s and cruelness, t o mention b u t a few, a r e t h e ultim a t e outcomes of religion which h a s not a s a cornerstone t h e Holy Word of God. True, we need a "valid religion", one t h a t is n o t concerned with a merely physical outcome but one t h a t h a s t h e Spiritual guidance a s J e s u s t a u g h t it and teaches it personally and b y t h e Bibl^.

Dear Editor, My a t t e n t i o n w a s called t o a n a r t i c l e in the l a s t issue of t h e " A n c h o r " written by C h a r l e s R. P r e v i t e , a n d concerning a s u b j e c t a b o u t w h i c h I am vitally concerned. I should like to g i v e a f e w of my views on some p o i n t s touched by the writer. It is q u i t e obvious t h a t t h e Bible is not a scientific textbook, nor was it e v e r intended to be such. I t h e r e f o r e can see no g r e a t theological c h a n g e s which a r e needed due to new f a c t s discovered by science. H i g h e r critics have f o r m a n y y e a r s been t r y i n g to d e s t r o y f a i t h and confidence in the Bible, but t h e Word of God has valiently w e a t h e r ed e v e r y s t o r m . Scientific discovery has n e v e r been able to prove the Bible a n outworn book; t h i s cannot be s a i d of any o t h e r book ever w r i t t e n . It seems to me t h a t one of t h e g r e a t fallacies of t h e ninet e e n t h c e n t u r y w a s to over e m phasize t h e d i f f e r e n c e between religion a n d science, and still today m a n y people cling to this outworn idea. The w r i t e r of the last l e t t e r tried to show t h e complete f a i l u r e of w h a t he t e r m e d C o n s e n atism. However, one should r e m e m b e r t h a t C o n s e r v a t i v e Christianity h a s been c h a n g i n g the world e v e r s i n c e Christ c o m m a n d e d ; "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every c r e a t u r e . " S a i n t Paul t u r n e d the world upside down — not with a social gospel — but with J e s u s C h r i s t , t h e Crucified and Risen One. C e r t a i n l y d u r i n g the f i r s t few c e n t u r i e s of the Christian Church the e m p h a s i s was on J e s u s Christ a s S a v i o u r ; and out of those cent u r i e s c a m e some of the g r e a t e s t social r e f o r m s ever u n d e r t a k e n . P u t J e s u s C h r i s t in t h e h e a r t s of men, and the world will be changed. Some f i f t e n y e a r s ago G e r m a n y cast off God, and entered into a "progressive era". The Liberal minded people a d a p t e d t h e i r religion to t h e new social order. Why should t h e y follow J e s u s Christ, when following Adolf Hitler meant b e t t e r housing, more food, jobs f o r all, etc.? Only g r e a t men of f a i t h such as Karl Barth, Martin Niemoeller, and scores more had the c o u r a g e t o call sin, sin. While the Liberals forsook t h e i r Christ, and winked a t t h e hell Hitler w a s making out of Europe, the Conservatives w e n t to concentration c a m p s f o r t h e i r Christ, a n d the r i g h t . C h r i s t i a n i t y m u s t not join itself to any social order, but must s t a n d out as a light set upon a hill, showing men in all a g e s the t r u t h s of God. O u r task is not to c h a n g e our religion to fit o u r social order, but to c h a n g e our social order to fit o u r religion. This c h a n g i n g world n e e d s a changeless Christ. If the Bible is not God's inspired word, and Christ is not God's Son then w h a t excuse h a v e e i t h e r f o r e x i s t i n g ? If the Bible is not w h a t it p r e t e n d s to be, t h e n let us cast it out, a n d get a book t h a t is t r u t h f u l . . If J e s u s Christ is not the divine Son of God, then he is a liar, a n d not w o r t h y to be called Lord or Teacher. Surely S o c r a t e s was, h u m a n l y speaking, a g r e a t e r m a n t h a n Christ. W h y not erect churches t o Socrates, or some o t h e r g r e a t t e a c h e r ? H i s t o r y has proved t h a t God's hand is p r o t e c t i n g and p r o m o t i n g His Book, His Son, and His C h u r c h . In s e e k i n g a f t e r the t r u t h s of God one should t h e r e f o r e go to the channels t h r o u g h which God gives t h e m . God in His divine providence saw fit to e n t r u s t H i s Word to inspired m e n of old, to whom we must go if we would see the t r u t h s of God. W e must go to Moses, Isaiah, P a u l , and o t h e r Biblical w r i t e r s , not Brewer, Goodspeed, or Fosdick. N o t u n t i l men h a v e a new inner n a t u r e c a n we have a new world. If men would come face t o f a c e with C h r i s t , and say a s Paul, " L o r d , w h a t wilt thou h a v e me to d o ? " we would have a c h a n g e d world.

D e a r Editor, C h r i s t i a n i t y , as it is p r e s e n t e d today, has failed to meet t h e problem of modern man. But t h e fault lies in j u s t t h a t — as it is p r e s e n t e d today. If we listen to such men as E. F. Scott and H. E. Fosdick, and o t h e r s likeminded, who deny its very essentials, and t r y t o correlate a p a t t e r n of C h r i s t i a n i t y with one of worldly philosophy and unsound doctrine, it is no wonder t h a t the modern is bewildered and at a loss a s to where t o t u r n to find the a n s w e r s to his problems. T h e r e is no a n s w e r . It is not even Christianity. C h r i s t i a n i t y is there, with the a n s w e r s , but we choose r a t h e r to accept the u n f o u n d e d , non-scientific t h e o r i e s of life, products of ignor a n t man, a s our rule of living. What about science? E v o l u t i o n ? Science and Biblical record can be correlated, but f a l s e h o o d s and vain theories such as m a n ' s " i d e a s " of evolution c a n n o t mix w i t h The Word. If evolution is to be true, it must be in accord with t h e f a c t s of physics and chemistry, which we find is not so. The bases of evolut i o n a r y t h i n k i n g may all be broken down with pure scientific research and study. In e v e r y t r u e and r e a s o n a b l e hypothesis, such as the atomic t h e o r y , there is not a single known f a c t which is cont r a r y to the hypothesis, but the evidence in support of evolution is incomplete and c o n t r a d i c t o r y at every point. T h i s fact is well known to biologists and scientists b u t , a s Dr. Merson Davies s t a t e s , " t h e i r p r e m a t u r e s u r r e n d e r to evolution s e e m s absolutely to have d e g r a d e d t h e i r scientific morals". ( T h e Bible and Modern Science, (3'd e d i t i o n ) , -p. 143) Evolution is a philosophy but not a science. The p r o p e r relationship between science and C h r i st i a n i t y is this: T a k e the f a c t s of science, a n d adj u s t them to the S c r i p t u r e s . Let t h e m be an aid in i n t e r p r e t a t i o n and u n d e r s t a n d i n g of God's divine plan. The fact of existence of life, of mind, of m a t t e r , p o s t u l a t e s t h e need of a C r e a t o r . T h e biological aspect of evolution is only a p a r t of the l a r g e r concept of the evolution of the universe, and it is impossible to conceive of t h e universe's coming into existence a p a r t f r o m the s u p e r n a t u r a l intervention. In the early c h a p t e r s of Genesis we f i n d a report of a p e r f e c t creation, followed by a curse. Ijlo o t h e r explanation can s a t i s f a c t o r i l y account f o r the n a t u r a l world as we o b s e r v e it today. C h r i s t i a n i t y is intelligent, and would be r e v o l u t i o n a r y if its principles were exercised in t h e lives of men today. It does o f f e r solution t o m a n ' s p r e s e n t dilemma. Does not t h e Christian s p i r i t of love a n s w e r t h e problem of m a n who is t h i n k i n g of world p e a c e ? " L o v e thy n e i g h b o r as t h y s e l f " is the g r e a t e s t c o m m a n d m e n t . C h r i s t i a n i t y does not teach a living f o r self, n o r p r e s e n t an economy of self gain a t a n o t h e r ' s e x p e ns e, but r a t h e r invites a living f o r Christ and f o r others. Such a principle exercised by m a n today would b r i n g about a revolution! And finally, Christianity is up to date in that it recognizes the sinfulness of man's heart, and does not stop there, but o f f e r s too, an answer to this major problem. A plan of redemption is set f o r t h in the person of Jesus Christ, in whom we may find forgiveness of sin. "For the w a g e s of sin is death; but the g i f t of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". "Keep thy heart with all diligence: f o r out of it are the issues of life", (Proverbs 4:23) Robert Laman

The w o r s t possible t h i n g t h a t could happen to a student who is really sincere and e n t h u s i a s t i c about f i n i s h i n g school is a lack of funds. And t h i s happens quite often, possibly not at Hope, but in l a r g e r schools. However, if a n y one is considering dropping out of school because of an e m b a r r a s s i n g financial s t a t u s , I would like to quote f r o m the Hope College Bulletin, under " S c h o l a r s h i p s " . . . Quote: " E s t e l l e Browning McLean Scholarship Fund was established by the g e n e r o s i t y of Mr. C. M. McLean, a f o r m e r member of the Board of T r u s t e e s . It is a f u n d of $10,000, the income of which is to be used to aid worthy s t u d e n t s who meet certain conditions outlined in the Will." Unquote. Very few people know about this fund, and it is t h e r e for a good purpose. So, if you're in a predicament, investigate.

RCA Inaugurates Powers Recast Youth Caravan Plan Several Depts. The summer of 1948 will see Reformed Church young people between the ages of 18 and 25 cooperating with the youth of the United Presbyterian Church in a joint Youth Caravan project. This new summertime experience in fulltime C h r i s t i a n service enables young people to demonstrate the p a r t they can play in bringing others to Christ. A Caravan is a team of four or five carefully chosen young people who f o r one week live among the members of some one of our many churches and share with its people their Christian talents and enthusiasm. The team will lead in a well planned series of activities with the minister, the consistory, and othei leaders of the church. Application blanks and full details concerning this summer service project may be secured by writing to Miss Marion Van Home, Department of Young P e o p l e ' s Work, Reformed Church in America, 156 F i f t h Avenue, New York 10, New York.

1. R. Club Meets With Jr. College . A joint-meeting of the Hope College IRC and the Grand Rapids Junior College International Rela tions Club was held on Hope's campus yesterday. A panel discussion on the Palestine situation with three Hope and three Junioi College students participating, gave impetus to the following open discussion. A r t h u r Ponstein acted ai moderator. On March 6 the IRC had th( pleasure of meeting for a briei period four of the city mayors fron the Netherlands who came to the United States recently to attend a conference with American city mayors. The mayors included Mr. J. P. Oud, Mr. G. Van Nus, Mr N. Arkema and Mr. C. G. Matser. Mr. Oud spoke briefly. The regular meeting on March 6 was conducted by George Toren on the question of aid to China Toren presented a helpful sketch of recent Chinese history and in dicated the alternative approaches to American aid to China. It was generally felt that the present Na tionalist Government must be given American aid to help China suppress the Communist rebellion with in her borders. Four Hope students from the IRC attended a three-day Midwest Intercollegiate Conference on the United Nations held in Chicago on February 2 7 - 2 8 - 2 9 . They were Peggy Prins, Ruth Dalenberg, Don Buteyn, and Con Vander Woude.

Hope is planning to o f f e r several lew courses beginning with the fall lemester. The Art, Spanish, and Physical Education D e p a r t m e n t s will be greatly enlarged and de/elopsd. New course offerings will be Jound in nearly all of the other departments also.

These anguage courses are all to be lumbered 55.

Spanish Club Centers Meeting Around Music

Beware The Wolf! Male wolves (the so-called human variety) can be spotted as f a r a s you can see them if you are wise to the wolf technique. And the technique is unvarying, according to an article by Alice Leone Moats in the February issue of Junior Bazaar entitled "How To Spot A Wolf." "The technique of wolves seldom differs," the article states in part. "Young ones use it by instinct and aren't necessarily aware t h a t they are. using a technique; older ones have perfected and given it polish and they know exactly what they are doing. Aside from t h a t difference, the methods are the same. Their technique might be compared to t h a t of the jujitsu artist who defeats his opponent by making him use his own strength against himself. A wolf keeps stepping back and letting the girl come forward, until, in her eagerness, she falls on her face — to put it politely." Uncertainty is one of the chief weapons of the wolf. At the end of his first date he will murmur something about calling you again sometime and then let you sweat it out f o r a few weeks, wondering whv he hasn't called.

Another wolf approach is his declaration that he "doesn't like casual a f f a i r s . " 'l.: ) "The moment a man says that, run f o r your life," the article continues. "You may be certain t h a t they are all he does like, and the more casual the better. Naturally they have to be casual on his side only. Part of the fun is making you think that this is the real thing, this is f o r keeps." When your new boy friend confides pensively t h a t he " h a s been terribly h u r t by a woman," beware, because to the trained ear this wolf call is as recognizable as The Star-Spangled Banner. And wittingly or unwittingly the wolf is aware of the fact that most women want to be needed. Therefore the work he is doing is never what really suits him, but with you at his side he could really accomplish great things. When he finally slips out of your life either through an adroitly engineered quarrel or a gradual disappearance, you can console yourself that you will not be forgotten immediately — when he s t a r t s to work on your successor, you will live on as the women who " h u r t " him. the article concludes.

to the All-Conference team that year. The 1943-44 season saw Hope's next basketball coach at Dennison University in Ohio as a Marine V-12 trainee. While at Dennison, he and Lee Nork, present center of the New York Knickerbockers, both broke the Ohio Collegiate Conference scoring record. " R u s t y " was also nominated to a berth on the All-Ohio team that season as well as receiving national recognition as an honorable mention candidate in '42-'4.,{ collegiate basketball. Plays on Service Team DeVette received his commission as a lieutenant in the marine corps in 1944 and during the basketball season of '44-'45 the well-known net-swisher toured the Pacific and the Orient as a member of the Pacific Marine Fleet basketball outfit that rolled over 48 opponents without a single setback. Other members of that Marine aggregation were Andy Phillips, former University of Illinois All-American, now star forward with the Chicago Stags, and Joe Fulks of Philadelphia, last year's most valuable player in the professional Basketball League of America. In 194(» following his discharge from the service, DeVette returned to the campus and, along with his former teammates, Don Mulder and "Gabby" Van Dis, led Hope to ano t h e r MIAA championship. The high-scoring forward also annexed the individual scoring title with 1(55 points as well as receiving the Bosch Trophy for the conference's most valuable player. He was also once more selected as a forward on the loop's all-star quintet. In addition to being a cage star, DeVette also earned a letter in track lasl year as a high-jumper and, academically, was one of his class' highest ranking students, being listed on the Hope College roll of seniors recognized by Who's \Mio In American rniversitieM and Colleges.

Milton

"Bud" Hinga. Known as the dean of MIAA coaches, Hinga has left an enviable and illustrious record behind as he closes the door on one of the state's most auspicious basketball records of all times. During 17 years of coaching Hope cage squads, his Dutch quintets have rolled up 178 victories and have been beaten but 71 times for a .719 percentage. Six times in 15 years of MIAA competition he has guided his Dutchmen to undisputed championships and on two other occasions his teams have shared the c r o w n . Since 1938, Coach Hinga's cagers have never finished lower than the runnerup position in the Michigan inter-collegiate conference. On several occasions during the Hinga regime, Hope has been selected as the state's top small college basketball school, twice receiving bids to the NIBA Tournament at Kansas City. With the exception of P e r c y J o n e s ' warstudded teams, only Western Michigan holds an edge over Hinga's charges, Adrian never bested a Hinga-coached crew in 14 attempts. Prior to his distinguished accomplishments at Hope, Hinga coached Holland High School cage squads f o r eight years, a position he took over following four years of play on the Kalamazoo College units that nabbed the MIAA crown four successive years from 1919-23. He also served as an official in numerous college and high school athletic events, having on 10 occasions officiated state high school basketball tournaments. "Excellent Successor" Regarding the appointment of his ex-pupil to fill his vacancy, Hinga stated that "there is no doubt in my mind that 'Rusty' will make an excellent basketball coach or that his scholastic ability and his high ideals will make him an excellent successor." The ex-mentor also added that "Hope will be behind him 100 per cent."

But a f i g h t i n g crew of Dutcnmen failed to sense defeat and, with only eight minutes remaining, Captain Don Mulder pushed in a shot f r o m medium range to put the locals ahead f o r the first time, 42-41. A f t e r the Dutchmen's diminutive s t a r had added a brace of f r e e throws, Herk Buter, who turned in his greatest performance of the year in the second half, tallied a tip-in and sunk a sensational overhead hook shot to boost Hope's margin to 48-42. The last minute rally by the f a s t - t i r i r g Scots fell short by two points and the O r a n g e and Blue, playing their last g a m e under the tutelage of Coach Hinga, avenged a 49-48 Scot triumph at Alma earlier in the season. Don Mulder registered 20 points and Bud Vande Wege, 16, eight ol which came early in the second half, to pace the Dutch scorers, though both Hope hot-shots failed to hit the hoop with usual consistency. "Moose" Holwerda sparkled with a brilliant display of rebound work off both backboards throughout the entire contest. For Alma, which held a 32-24 intermission lead, Saxton and Howells each chalked up 15 points, the latter scoring 14 in the first half.

time coaching g r e a t s soared to a thrilling climax a f t e r a quartercentury of brilliant success. T h a t the illustrious achievements of Milton L. " B u d " Hinga a r e rightly so-called is an unchallenged fact. His record with Hope College basketball q u i n t e t s speaks for itself. During 17 y e a r s as head nentor of Dutch t e a m s t h a t participated in MIAA competition for 15 seasons, his a g g r e g a t i o n s hold a big margin over all other conferance members. F o u r out of every five times the O r a n g e and Blue took the floor a g a i n s t an MIAA foe, the H i n g a - t u t o r e d squad walked away victorious. In 15 campaigns the Hinga-men notched up Bight championships, six of which were undisputed. A g a i n s t non-conference competition, the record of Coach Hinga is almost enviable. Only Western Michigan and the w a r t i m e team of Percy Jones hold margins over Hope's Hinga t e a m s . All-told, in his 17-year Hope career, " B u d " Hinga churned out 178 triumphs in 249 games—a .719 percentage. One more comment must be made in r e i t e r a t i n g the f a c t t h a t Coach Hinga's record s t a n d s solidly in Michigan cage history. Twice, once a f t e r a 15-2 season's record in 4142 and again following a 16-4 showing during last year's campaign, Hope's Dutchmen have been invited to the N I B A Tournament held annually at K a n s a s City. An jnvitation to this tourney demands more than the representative be the best in its s t a t e ; it also means t h a t it is one of the 16 best small college quintets in the nation! When the 1948-49 cage campaign begins, no longer will Coach " B u d " Hinga be seen in his coaching seat next to t h e scoring table. Followers of athletics at Hope will continue to feel his presence as the Dutch Athletic Director, but they, as well as sports lovers all over the state, will miss his familiar figure on the bench alongside his team.

Hope Women Busy On 3 Sport Fronts Hope College was chosen as host38s school f o r the annual MIAA women's tennis meet to be held early in May, it w a s decided on F e b r u a r y 27 a t a conference held in Marshall.

On the i n t r a m u r a l basketball f r o n t the Hopeites remained undefeated with six s t r a i g h t wins. Other impressive records include: Senior S t a r s and Hunyaks, with 4-1 records, and t h e Court-Combers and Hot Shots, who boasted 3-2 standings.
