A variety of booths will be set up by the sororities, fraternities, the Alcor Society, The Blue Key Society, the Y's, Freshman girls, and the faculty. For the information of the newer students, these booths will probably include games of Bingo, some games of skill, the selling of various refreshments, a picture gallery, a telegram office, fortune telling, and other activities peculiar to carnivals.

Alcohol Problem Is Competition Theme Dr. Irwin J. Lubbers has been asked to serve on a six-man executive committee of the Intercollegiate Association for the study of the Alcohol Problem. T h i s agency is not a new or temporary movement; it is a p e r m a n e n t agency f o r education on the Alcohol Problem, specializing in service to colleges, students and high school teachers. Because of the acute problem at the present time the organization has launched an intensive 4-year post-war program. Dr. Lubbers has been interested in this committee for a number of years. There was a chapter of the association active on Hope's campus a number of years ago. To stimulate thought and action the association is staging an editorial contest offering a total of 19 prizes with a value of $560.00. Theme of the editorials is "Outgrowing Alcoholic Culture," and contenders may write on any phase of this general theme. The contest is open to u n d e r g r a d u a t e college students, enrolled for the year 1946-47, only. Entries will be received up to J u n e 30, 1947, but f o r a better chance at the e x t r a monthly prizes the student is advised to write early. F i r s t prize will be $200.00, second — $50.00 each (2 prizes), t h i r d — $ 2 0 . 0 0 each (10 prizes), and $10.00 will be awarded f o r each editorial selected f o r publication in the "International Stud e n t " magazine. o

student to hold one major office during a given school year. The mechanics of such a system would have to be ironed out in a committee, possibly of the Student Council and Women's Activities League. Instead of waiting until the time that alections are being held, or else have been held, and then worrying about how to limit the number of positions per student, something should be done before then. Not only does the person involved suffer, but the organizations do not receive the best that they could and should receive. Real accomplishment comes only with undivided attention. The solution of this activities problem rests in the hands of the students themselves. If you feel that Hope lacks things to do, investigate the opportunities which are at your fingertips. If your organization fails to meet the need of satisfying those who do not attend because interest is lacking, evaluate and revise so that this need may be met. And if you are burdened with too many activities, consider others who may find themselves in the same predicament unless some plans are made soon. The problem can be solved, but it will require immediate cooperation from everyone. o

Men m u s t understand •hat there Is an implacable moral order built i n t o the very nature of things that c a n n o t be violated without fatal coosequencea; an order that recognises no artiflcial distinctions of race, class, nation or creed and guarantees that the only k i n d of society that shall endure is one which works f o r the common enrichment of all people. It means that the life of all mankind is inseparably bound together, so that none c a n be s a f e until all are safe, that none c a n be permanently free until all are free, and none can be permanently at p e a c e until all are at peace. The universe w a s made to fulfill a creative moral purpose and a n y society that fails to work in harmony with such a purpose is simply running up against the nature of reality and thereby underwriting its o w n doom.

Contest Winners u a t c Will Receive Trip To Netherlands With a blast of a horn, the lid of the Music Box is blown open this week. Yep, if you hear anyone tooting a t you in the next couple weeks, look q u i c k l y and you'll probably see a new grey plymouth belonging to the Snow family. With four drivers, and four fenders, it will be interesting to see how long the car c a n b e kept w i t h o u t wrinkles. Congratulations are in store for Alma Vander Hill on a wonderful recital. It was a fine performance, and we look forward now to Alma's Senior recital next fall. Next in line for recital appearances a r e Betty Christie and Rog Rietberg. This joint voice-organ program promises to be a very fine evening's entertainment. If you have a pencil handy, you might check the following dat es on your calendar; Tuesday, March 25, Christie-Rietberg recital; Tuesday, April 29, Nellie Mae Ritsema recital; S u n d a y , May 4, Marion Slinn, p ano recital; Tuesday, May 6, P>yllis Darrow-Dick Vriesman, joint vocal recital, and Tuesday, May 13, Betty Van Lente, piano recital. T h a n k s are in store f o r the Student Council in bringing Mr. Sp cer here for a concert, and also to the college for the appearance of Rudolf Ganz. We wonder sometimes, just how crreat would be the strain if all of the student body and faculty joined in on the hymn-singing. We should be proud of our new hymnals, and if you can't read the notes of unfamiliar hymns, just sing anyway. The only way to learn these hymns is to sing them. We've heard a lot of talk lately about what to do on Sunday a f t e r noons, and evenings d u r i n g the week, and yet, come recitals and " W h e r e are the people?" The students giving these recitals have worked long hours in p r e p a r i n g for them. We know that almost every student attends basketball g a m e s or is interested in them, and we can be proud of our teams, but why not show these student musicians t h a t we're behind them. If you think preparing for and giving a recital is f u n , try it sometime. Vriesman

As usual Hope can a g a i n look back on a very successful basketball season. Things went almost exactly as predicted. We lost t h r e e games. (The Monmouth game was not scheduled a t t h a t time.) We won the M. I. A. A. championship, " n o ties involved." (Quote Koop) Also De Vette walked off with scoring honors as scheduled. I think without a doubt Hope's g r e a t e s t p e r f o r m a n c e w a s the 83-46 beating we handed Albion. At t h e time no one realized t h a t t h a t would prove to be t h e deciding game in the championship f i g h t . Kalamazoo is still a r a t h e r touchy subject around campus. Personally, I think those who saw t h e game gained a much deeper appreciation of w h a t a good team we really have as compared to w h a t they might be. Of course a few chronic complainers had to immediately j u m p on the team, the coach, a n d everyone else involve^ with a flood of learned criticisms. As usual m o s t of them didn't know w h a t they were talking about but had to say something j u s t f o r the sake of complaining. The f a c t s speak much better. Hope has won or tied f o r six M.I.A.A. titles during the p a s t nine seasons. The o t h e r three years we ended second. Hope broke several school and conference records this year. 1293 points is a new offensive high f o r one season. 984 points is the highest season total f o r the opposition, Hope's 64.7 point a v e r a g e is also a record. Russ De Vette broke the individual scoring with 328 points. Hope broke t h e M. I. A. A. season scoring record with 679 points. We do not know f o r sure whether or not De Vette's 165 conference points is a new m a r k . Russ De Vette was chosen most valuable player by the members of the team. The most valuable players of the other M. I. A. A. schools a r e as follows: Kalamazoo - Stanski, Albion - Isaac, Alma - H a r t t , Adrian - Champion, and Hillsdale Edson. Each member of t h e various teams r a t e s t h e selections of the other five teams. In this way the most valuable p l a y e r in the conference is selected. The votes have been cast but t h e results have not been released. De Vette should win it hands down. The team certainly has plenty to say about t h a t Monmouth game. "Boy, was t h a t a good basketball game in Chicago S t a d i u m . " "You should have seen those rooms in the Stephens," "Swell hockey g am e. " etc. etc. (Monmouth g a m e t h a t is.) One more week and a play-off will decide the f r a t e r n i t y basketball championship. I'll m a k e no predictions because I might be accused of being biased. Everyone's s t a r t i n g to feel baseball in t h e i r blood. The m a j o r leagues a r e practicing, Hope is practicing, and plans a r e under way for a f r a t e r n i t y league. The bowling league reaches the h a l f w a y mark tomorrow. The best teams in the league, the Knick " A " and F r a t e r " A " , seem to have carved out too l a r g e handicaps f o r themselves and a r e not doing very well in the won and lost columns. I still pick one of these t e a m s to win the league.

N. Y.

Hope, somewhat let down a f t e r w i n n i n g the M.I.A.A. title, missed m a n y easy shots and had some defense troubles. Hope stuck with Monmouth f o r minutes when the score read 13-13. From then on it was all Monmouth. They outscored Hope 35-13 d u r i n g the remainder of the first half which ended 48-26. T h e last half was strictly a f o r m a l i t y as Monmouth went on to win a t will. Monmouth played very smooth set-up ball. Their f a s t r o t a t i n g block set up many short-long shots. Their two big guns, A r m s t r o n g and Talkins, did almost all their scoring on long shots. Mcllvin, Monmouth's big center, played a fine g a m e under the boards. F o r the third s t r a i g h t g a m e De Vette led Hope's scoring w i t h nine field goals and two f r e e throws. T h e rest of the t e a m didn't f a r e a s well on Monmouth's f a n - s h a p e d backboards. Monmouth will come t o Holland f o r a g a m e next season. Monmonth (84) White, f. Weckstrom, f .
