Voice of The Campus To the S t u d e n t s :

To the E d i t o r :

As Hope College was assigned the task of playing host to the s t a t e t o u r n a m e n t of college orators, which occurred last F r i d a y , March 5, the local speech f r a t e r n ity was determined t h a t we should be the best possible of hosts. The experience h a s been over the y e a r s t h a t when the o r a t o r s f r o m the various schools attend the s t a t e contest, they speak to virtually empty rooms (except for the few j u d g e s ) , and the host school student body generally a p p e a r s t o be somewhat oblivious to the outstanding event t h a t is taking place. So the local Pi K a p p a Delta speech f r a t e r n i t y decided t h a t we should t r y to play the good host. T h i s of course required effort on the p a r t of many people. Successful a s it was, the event could not have been so if it were not f o r the generous cooperation of many students and faculty who actually donated t h e i r services and s u p p o r t on a completely voluntary basis. To all of these people, thank-you, very much.

I am one of the countless Hope s t u d e n t s who enjoy reading t h e Dire E v e n t s column. I a m also one of those who believe in the p res s and its powers. If certain persons on this c a m p u s can not persevere the humor which "The T i g e r " a i m s at certain of their a d m i n i s t r a t i v e acts, then perhaps we had b e t t e r stop publication of t h e A N C H O R . The only people who could be h u r t by the columnist are those who think too highly of themselves.

In 1776, the college was divided into two political c a m p s—the " W h i g s " and t h e "Yahoos." The " Y a h o o s " got t o g e t h e r some of their f r a t b r o t h e r s and ran t h r o u g h the g i r l s ' dorms. The " W h i g s " were mad because they weren't included.

With the all i m p o r t a n t College Sing completed, the f r a t e r n i t i e s on Hope's c a m p u s are t u r n i n g their interest to joint meetings with the sororities. At least these joint meeting should prove more stimulating t h a n the countless practice sessions t h a t go along with competing in the All College Sing.

Cosmopolitan Fraternity History by Bill Helder I he Cosmopolitan Society was born in the year 1890. It originated as the result of a class feud, and, as many a nation t h a t fights its way into existence, h a s proved its right to live by growing on in spite of the many s t o r m s t h a t have passed over and around it since. It was the first f r a t e r n i t y to be organized on the campus of Hope College and as such has a l e g i t i m a t e claim to the title of F i r s t Hope College F r a t e r n i t y .

Helpful Hints on How To 'Pass' Thru College ( A C P ) — F o l l o w i n g arc 10 suggestions from Robert Tyson, of the H u n t e r College (New York) department of psychology and philosophy, on how to stay in college: 1. Bring the professor newspaper clippings dealing with his subject. Demonstrates feeling interest and gives him timely items to mention in class. If you can't find clippings dealing with his subject, bring in any clippings at random. He thinks everything deals with his subject. 2. Look alert. T a k e notes eagerly. If you look at your watch, don't stare at it unbelieving and shake it. 3. Nod frequently and mumer, " H o w t r u e ! " T o you this seems exaggerated; to him it's quite objective. 4. Sit in front, near him. (Applies only if you intend to stay awake.) If you're going to all the trouble of making a good impression, you might as well let him know who you are, especially in a large class. 5. L a u g h at his jokes. You can tell. If he looks up from his notes and smiles expectantly, he has told a joke. 6. Ask for outside reading. You don't have to read it. Just ask. 7. If you must sleep, arrange to be called at the end of the hour. It creates an unfavorable impression if the rest of the class has left and you sit there alone, dozing. 8. Be sure the book you read during lecture hours looks like a book from the course. If you do m a t h in psychology class and psychology class, match books for size and color. 9. Ask any questions you think he can answer. Conversely, avoid announcing t h a t you have found the answer to a question he couldn't answer, and in your brother's second grade reader at that. 10. Call attention to his writing. Produces an exquisitely pleasant experience connected with you. If you know he's written a book or an article, ask in class if he wrote it. As to whether or not you w a n t to do some work in addition to all this, well it's controversial and up to the individual.


During World W a r II, the Cosmos gave up their identity with the rest of the f r a t e r n i t i e s on the campus, and banded together in a single organization to keep the spirit of f r a t e r n i t i e s alive which the bulk of the men were serving in the Armed Forces. In the fall of 1946 Cosmopolitan resumed its independent existence in a room

Cagers Close Campaign — Cop Couple Even though deprived of a third s t r a i g h t MIAA basketball title, the Hope Dutchmen closed out a not unsuccessful season in r a t t l i n g off two impresive victories in their final encounters, crushing Alma, 1)7-71, and bumping Calvin, 100-90. Both conference tilts, the wins enabled t h e Dutch to snag a second place tie on an 11-3 record, and to h a n g up a 12-7 over-all season performance. The Alma Scots, upset victors over Hope earlier in the y e a r in their own gym, hung on f o r a little more t h a n a q u a r t e r before slipping behind the well-balanced power of their hosts. Ahead by 15-14 at the first gun, the Alma crew was jolted by a blistering 38-point second q u a r t e r spree by the Dutch, in which Will Rink and Bob Hendrickson poured in 11 and 9 respectively. A sophomore-dominated team, the Scots a g a i n showed promise of being a title contender next year, though the squad is hampered somewhat hampered by a lack of height. Guard George Fox was high f o r the losers with 23, followed by Bud Miller with 20. F o r Hope Hendrickson netted 22, while Rink added 17. Behind a consistent, effective f a s t b r e a k attack he Dutch humbled con%^ence champ and traditional rival Calvin in one of the better-played contests in the Armory this season. A f t e r the Knig h t s dumped in the first f e w points, the Hope machine began to roll and t h r e a t e n e d f o r several minutes to turn the f r a y into a rout, leading at one point 19-9.

Opening minute play in both the third and f o u r t h periods saw Calvin creep up behind the Dutchmen, in the latter instance nabbing a short-lived one-point lead, but each t i m e the victors managed to increase the spread to a s a f e total. Hope freezing tactics and resulting f o u l s f r o m the d es p erat e Knights in the last moments helped the Dutchmen, who popped seven s t r a i g h t f r e e throws, to build the total up toward the three-figure mark, which was finally achieved at the buzzer by Hendrickson on a follow-up tip.
