Prominent String Quartet Will Give Tuesday Concert T h e M a r i a n n e Kneisel S t r i n g Quartet, the f o r e m o s t w o m e n ' s s t r i n g q u a r t e t in America, will present a concert next Tuesday, March 21, at 11:10 a.m. in the chapel. This group has travelled throughout the United States, playing before hundreds of college audiences and has had eight appearances in Town Hall. A combination of p e r f e c t musicianship and personal charm has made the quartet perhaps one of the most appreciated of all c h a m b e r m u s i c ensembles. The history of the Q u a r t e t has been brilliant from the beginning. Miss Kneisel, the leader of the ensemble, is the daughter of F r a n z Kneisel, pioneer leader of chamber music in America, who founded the Kneisel String Quartet which b3came the most famous string quartet in the world. Growing up in this atmosphere, it is only natural t h a t she should have a most successful q u a r t e t of her own. Born in Boston, Miss Kneisel received her entire musical education from her f a t h e r , later being awarded r.n Artist's Diploma from the Juilliaid School of Music in New York. Her associates a r e real a r t i s t s in their own names. Miss Kneisel will play on h?r f a m o u s " S a n c y S t r a d i v a r i u s " owncd about one hundred years ago by the French family " S a n c y " from which it derived its name. The violin itself w a s made in 1713, the period so o f t e n referred to as the "Golden Period of S t r a d i v a r i u s " . It was owned at one time by J a n Kubelik who made his world-wide success on the instrument. In 1921 it was brought to this country by a collector, and in 1938 it came into the possession of its present owner, M a r i a n n e Kneisel. Director of the famous Kneisel Hall a t Bluehill, Maine, Miss Kneisel presents a series of concerts there every summer, and residents attend them yearly. The q u a r t e t has been widely acclaimed by music critics wherever it plays.

Fraternity Houses To Re-Open In Fall President Irwin J. Lubbers announced recently that plans are now being made f o r the re-opening of f r a t e r n i t y houses on the Hope campus. Next September, a f t e r a period of about eight years when no men on the Hope campus have lived in f r a t e r n i t y homes, Hope f r a t e r n i t i e s will again p r o v i d e rooming facilities. The Emersonian and F r a t e r n a l societies will r e t u r n to houses which they formerly occupied. The Emmies will move into Beach Cottage and the F r a t e r s will reclaim Fairbanks Cottage. This evening the Cosmopolitan f r a t e r n i t y will be entertained at the home of Dr. Lubbers, where m a t t e r s r e g a r d i n g their f u t u r e house will be discussed. This society, since it formerly owned a house, will be given the choice of living in Columbia Hall or of waiting until another structure is selected by the Hope administration for f r a t e r n i t y use. Plans are also being made so that the Knickerbocker and Arcadian f r a t e r n i t i e s can be properly housed. Final a r r a n g e m e n t s will probably not be concluded until this summer.

Durfee Hall, and the Gymnasium. Gradually the remaining buildings on campus will be connected to the system, but a definite date has not been set. It may be of interest to know t h a t the end of the coal strike and the operation of the boiler occurred none too soon. The college was on the verge of closing school f o r two weeks because three carloads of coal intended to heat the campus buildings were confiscated by the railroads. The strike is over, and the boiler is operating, so students can plan on having spring vacation at the expected time.

Committee Studies Plans For Rooms In Durfee Hall The Committee on Furnishings for Durfee Hall met last week in Gilmore Cottage in order to discuss various suggestions concerning the f u r n i t u r e for the lounge and rooms in the new dorm. The members discussed with Mr. Ralph Calder, the architect of D u r f e e Hall, the various offers made by the local f u r n i t u r e dealers in regard to built-in dressers, single beds, and bookcases to be placed in the rooms. Each of the various pieces of f u r n i t u r e will be especially designed so as to be most suitable for the rooms. The committee also discussed ideas concerning the color scheme, f u r n i t u r e , carpeting, and draperies for the lounge in order to purchase beaut i f u l as well as durable f u r n i t u r e . Yesterday six members of the committee drove to Michigan State College in E a s t Lansing where they again met Mr. Calder who escorted them through the Union Building and newest women's residential hall and men's residential hall for which Mr. Calder was the architect. In this way, the committee members obtained a more concrete idea of the type of f u r n i t u r e which would be most practical for our own D u r f e e Hall. The members of the committee a r e Mrs. George Pelgrim, chairman, and the following officers f r o m the Hope College Women's League: Mrs. J . C. Westerhoff, Mrs. H a r r y Young, Mrs. E r n e s t Brooks, and Mrs. George Albers; Dr. Irwin J .

Hope Purchases Concert Tickets Hope College has undertaken a new project by buying a block of 100 season tickets for the Community Concert Series in Grand Rapids f o r the season of 1950-1951. This is an a t t e m p t to enable students and faculty members to attend a series of concerts of professional quality. This decision was made as an alternative to the plan to bring a mediocre concert series to the Hope campus, because it was decided t h a t students would benefit more f r o m hearing one of the best concerts series in the nation. Each season ticket costs $6 but the college has purchased a block of 100 season tickets for $300. A r r a n g e m e n t s will be made so t h a t those students and faculty members desiring a season ticket may buy one, but the remaining tickets will be owned by the college and released to students to be used for one concert a t a time. Definite prices will be arranged f o r each concert, and transportation facilities will be provided if needed. Arr a n g e m e n t s for tickets and transportation will be made through the Musical A r t s Club and the administration.

Basic Assumptions On F e b r u a r y 16, Dean Long, P r o f e s s o r of Economics at Evansville College, Evansville, Indiana, met with the Special Study Committee and also with the Educational Policies Committee of the Hope faculty to discuss d e p a r t m e n t a l comprehensive exams f o r seniors. It is e n c o u r a g i n g to note this indication t h a t the t e s t i n g p r o g r a m at Hope is being evaluated. Implicit in all social enterprises a r e certain basic assumptions. This is especially t r u e of college education. These assumptions a r e o f t e n extremely important, f o r they det e r m i n e the n a t u r e of the educative process and give a continuity to teaching practices. They a r e closely associated with the aims and objectives of college training. Because of t h e key roles which they play, the validity

S t a t e m e n t s like "When are we going to have another swell time like t h i s ? " were many a f t e r the sophomore p a r t y held at the Literary Club last S a t u r d a y evening. The theme " R a g g Mopp — 52" was ably carried out under the direction of the chairman, Donald De^ Young. A cheery atmosphere was provided with both floors of the club being decorated by properties suggestive of the theme. Tables were set casually about the rooms, and candle light provided that added touch to t h e atmosphere. The g u e s t s were attired informally, the evening being spent in a "SockHop" manner. A specially imported floor show was provided. The Rockettes presented several fascinating reviews, truly in " R a g g Mopp" style. The sophomore band under the direction of Gordy Cox confirmed the fact t h a t the sophomore class is truly talented. Destined f o r Broadway are Bill Finlaw and Ken Erickson, who gave their rendition of "Wond e r b a r . " Don Brandt and Don DeYoung, with the aid of Lavina Hoogeveen, set the audience laughing on their way to "Stromboli." T h e usually reserved sophomores lost some of their customary dignity when a b a r r a g e of balloons was dropped f r o m the ceiling a t the end of the floor show. Everyone seemed to find new f r i e n d s and acquaintances within the class, and the fellowship of the class of '52 was increased.

of these assumptions should be s u b j e c t to constant re-evaluation. It is sometimes tacitly assumed t h a t curr e n t teaching and t e s t i n g methods a r e the best. B u t this is not always the case. W h a t is the function of a t e s t ? W h a t should be the content of t e s t s ? How can examinations help to t r a i n the whole of m a n f o r the whole of life? Education has many assumptions. Their effects determine t h e course of college practices of instruction. It is highly i m p o r t a n t t h a t these assumptions be recognized and understood. In t h i s way w r o n g ideas will be eliminated and valid axioms will become recognized. This evaluation of basic assumptions is not an easy task, but unless it is undertaken, there is t h r e a t of s t a g n a t i o n in education. A study of the assumptions underlying the t e s t i n g p r o g r a m at Hope will make possible vitality in the educational p r o g r a m here. — W. B. S. n/

H a v e you ever had the experience of searching f o r references in the catalogue in Graves Library, finding t h e catalogue number of j u s t the book which you thought contained the i n f o r m a t i o n you needed, and then discover t h a t the book no longer could be f o u n d ? Have you ever looked f o r Volume XI or XII of the Encyclopaedia B r i t t a n i c a and found t h a t it was missing? Have you ever looked f o r a magazine article only to discover t h a t the p a r t i c u l a r copy you needed had disappeared? Almost everyone of us have had similar i r r i t a t i n g experiences as those mentioned above. W h y does this occur? Because some students on our c a m p u s have lost their sense of social consciousness. It's t r u e t h a t those encyclopaedia volumes have perhaps been ret u r n e d by now, but they were missing only a f e w days ago. It's happened before, and it will happen again unless students stop to realize t h a t their a t t i t u d e is one of p u r e selfishness. When t h a t assignment is due tom o r r o w and it's 9 : 3 0 p. m. now, we suddenly realize t h a t we only have 15 more minutes in which to finish r e a d i n g t h a t magazine article. Why not j u s t take the magazine home and have all night to really do the assignment r i g h t ? Certainly t h e r e is nothing w r o n g in t h a t — j u s t one instance of rationalization. The magazine will be returned tomorrow, and no one will know the difference. But is the magazine r e t u r n e d ? Three months later, at the end of the semester, we are shocked to see the magazine in the same place we had left it t h a t night so long ago. It certainly is s t r a n g e t h a t the magazine hadn't r e t u r n e d by itself.

Faculty Members Will Go To Ann Arbor Meeting

CoundJ The s u b c o m m i t t e e set up to formulate the new student-faculty committees made its first report to the Council at the past meeting. The committee has proposed t h a t five new student-faculty committees be set up and definitions be given to each. The proposed committees a r e : Recreation and Health, Building and Grounds, Public Relations, Dining Hall, and a Mediation committee. The Dining Hall committee has already been set up and has been working very commendably for the past two weeks. The subcommittee hopes to be able to have all of the student-faculty committees functioning this spring so t h a t by next fall they may know exactly what their duties are and may begin work immediately. Bill Hinga, chairman in c h a r g e of procuring a new nickname for the school, reports that several interesting suggestions have been turned in. We would suggest that if you have any good ideas, t h a t you turn your suggestion in immediately. The entries must be dated! Last semester the Council attempted to set up a Commons Room in the Van Raalte Lounge. The project was a failure because of the misuse of the Commons Room. This semester the Council is setting up the room on a d i f f e r ent basis. There will be two pingpong tables, one in the lounge and one in the men's room. Equipment will have to be checked at the

The fifty-second annual meeting of The Michigan A c a d e m y of Science, Arts, and Letters will be held at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, on March 23, 24, and 25. Hope College will be well represented in many of the eighteen sections of the Academy. Attending will be Professors Ellert, Ross, Unger, Van Saun, Vergeer, and Wolters. Professor J a m e s Unger will present a paper on plant anatomy. It is based on the differentiating of vascular tissue in plants of the Compositae (sun-flower) family. Professor Unger's work is in the field of comparison of the earlier embryo with the m a t u r e embryo. This is a new field in botany in which Prof. Unger has done extensive research. Pfnfnggnr frl P11 a J- IkiSS, of Hope's History Department, will present a paper entitled " T h e Role of Climate in Russian History." Professor Ross's paper discusses the effect of climate upon individual energy and characteristics, dwelling upon the size of the U.S.S.R. The paper shows t h a t weather affected the R u s s i a n s ' characteristics, accounting for their changing reactions; the climate also was responsible for the T a r t a r invasion which, in turn, developed in the Russians the submissiveness which made autocracy characteristic of government a n d ^ e x p l a i u ^ t h e backwardness of i n d u s t r j ^ * ' Professor Teunis Vergeer will

Campus Mailbox To whom it does concern: The Student body of Hope College — At the last meeting of your Council, a m a t t e r was brought to our attention that was shocking as well as being unusual, for a campus of the nature t h a t Hope prides itself on being. This m a t t e r we believe to be of the g r e a t e s t importance to all the students concerned and t h a t means all of us. It is a m a t t e r that demands immediate positive action on the part of all of us. This m a t t e r is the disgraceful amount of thievery being carried on in our school li brary. In the past few months the amount of books being removed from the library has grown to the extent where it can no longer be whitewashed with the thought that the books were carried off by unthinking people who absent-mindedly took them with them. The m a t t e r has reached a point where it looks like there is a selfish element on campus which is building up its private stock of books and other material at the expense of us all. When a thief steals the tools of trade of a laboring man there is much hue and cry. Should not this be multiplied when the tools of trade of students are appropriated without the consent of all? What can be more discouraging to students and teachers alike than to have vitally necessary r e f erence books stolen, and it is stealing, from their use ? The question is not to be l e f t up to the library staff for a solution. The answer must come f r o m us, you and me. We are the only ones who can point the accusing finger of guilt a t those selfish, irresponsible, dishonest individuals who are depriving us of our proper tools of study. It is the responsibility of all of us to remedy these existing conditions. Any person who would deprive another of his chance to better himself is one of the lowest f o r m s of humanity and should not be subject to our sympathy or our indulgence. We, the members of the Council, feel t h a t this is a m a t t e r we a s a student body can handle, it is up to us. We can s t a r t practicing practical Christianity by condemning this situation and by each of us doing his utmost to alleviate it. We can show t h a t action of this type is not in the keeping with the ideals of a Hope student. We can rectify this type of action on the p a r t of the misguided minority by showing t h a t we definitely, decidedly, and positively will n o t tolerate any f u r t h e r i n f r i n g e m e n t of our r i g h t s by these unthinking few. Sincerely yours, Bob Hill, Secretary of the Council

present two papers. The first will tell of the influence of excessive neutron irradiation on tulip bulbs, showing t h a t although life is prolonged nearly 10 months at the present dosage used, anabolism is completely inhibited, the plants fail to store food and ultimately die. The second p a p e r is on the influence of certain irradiated materials on tulip bulbs, s t a t i n g that normal tulip bulbs t h a t were exposed to r a d i o - a c t i v e sodium, iodine, and cobalt suffered many consequences, including p a r t i a l sterilization and delayed development of seed capsules largely without seeds, showing t h a t female reproductive p a r t s were almost completely sterilized. Both of these reports are preliminary, and hereditary results cannot be determined for a number of years. The significance of the work does not lie in the possible improvement of tulip varieties, but r a t h e r on understanding whether the influence of nuclear energy on plant materials is destructive or desirable.

P a r s o n s observes t h a t there is little difference in the schools of P a k i s t a n and A m e r i c a with one notable exception. He points out t h a t f e w American s t u d e n t s h a v e travelled widely while most of t h e "kids in P a k i s t a n h a v e been h a l f w a y around the world a couple of times."

By setting back Michigan Normal 63 to 51 in their final game of the season, Hope's Flying Dutchmen notched their eleventh win of the 1949-50 season. Exclusive of tournament play, the Hollanders lost seven tilts during the campaign. Bud VandeWege and J u n Bremer were the big guns f o r the Hopeites against a rough Huron a g g r e g a tion, collecting 19 and 17 points, respectively. Fred Jackson and H a r r y Fosdick paced the Ypsi quint with 11 points each. Calvin Wins Earlier in the week the Orange and Blue cagers faltered for the second time this year against Calvin and lost by a respectable- 66-48 count. Elmer Ribbens, shooting unerringly from the corners, sparked the Knight attack with a total of 24 points. Duane Rosendahl was next in line f o r the Grand Rapids five with 16. Bud VandeWege led Hope with a 14-point total, while Paul Muyskens tallied 10. Hope took an early lead in the Knight contest, but midway in the first half wilted before the blazing attack of the Calvinites, the latter holding a 28-23 advantage at the intermission. Bud VandeWege leads Hope scoring at the end of the season with 229 points in 20 games. Paul Muyskens is next with 206 markers. Nick Yonker scored 195, and Bill Holwerda contributed 115 tallies.

On Saturday, March 4, 20 Hope girls were guests of Calvin College at the annual Hope-Calvin play day. Competition was held in kickball, volleyball, and b a s k e t b a l l a f t e r teams composed of both Hope and Calvin members were chosen. These teams then took part in tournaments in both volleyball and basketball. The Calvin Women's Athletic Association treated the Hopeites to a dinner at noon and to a tea following the basketball tournament. Miss Louise VanDommelen Director of Women's Athletics a t I Hope, and Jennie Spoelstra accompanied the coeds. The girls from Hope t h a t participated were f r e s h m e n Reva Pickett, Marge Pott, Mary LaHuis and Patt S t a g g ; sophomores Mary Houtman, Doris Adams, Marilyn Veldman, Caryl Curtis and Betty Bardwell; juniors Dolores Freyling, Eleanor Short, B a r b a r a VanNeuren, Lois England, and Jeannine DeBoer; seniors M a r g a r e t Aardema, Mary Breid, Lorry Drake, M a r g a r e t M o e r d y k , and Ann Jansma.

Having completed another successful season, the varsity basketball team decided last week to attempt to find just where their source of power really rested — with the f o r m e r Holland prep school stars, or with the faction that has been imported f r o m various locales beyond the boundaries of the Tulip City. Thus it was t h a t on March 6 the test of strength was held at Carnegie gym before a roaring crowd of some two thousand spectators (unofficial estimate). The Locals had on their roster the names of such Hope cage g r e a t s as Bud VandeWege, J u n B r e m e r , Bill Hinga, Zeke Piersma, Ken VanRegenmorter, and Fuzz Bouman. Sparking the attack for the Yokels, or out-of-towners, were Jack Marema, Dewey Peekstok, Paul Muyskens, Bob Wagner, Bill Holwerda, J e r r y Jacobson, and Frank Breen. (Nick Yonker had already turned in his equipment for repair and was unable to participate in the all-important tilt.) Take Early Lead A f t e r four q u a r t e r s of bitterly fought basketball, it was proved once and for all t h a t the locals had been included on the 1949-50 Hope varsity roster merely as a drawing card for Holland cage fans. The Yokels grabbed an early lead and coasted to a lop-sided 66-46 victory. The Aliens led 24 to 8 at the end of the first period and by halftime held a respectful 32-17 lead. At the end of the third quarter they had increased their margin to 51-32. Forward Jack Marema connected from all angles to lead the Yokel quint's attack with a total of 25 points. Bob Wagner was next in line for the winners with 20. Fuzz Bouman, an import from the frosh squad, outshone his town varsity teammates to lead the Locals in scoring with 14 tallies. Bud VandeWege added 11 points to the losers' cause. L O C A L S (46) FG VandeWeRe, forward 5 V a n R e R e n m o r t e r , f o r w a r d .. 2 Hin^a, forward 1 Bremer, center 4 Piersma.

The issue of whether or not the type of basketball in Hope-Calvin g a m e s is sub-par, a subject which has already had more than its share of space on this page, is still as controversial as ever. From across the counter of " S p o r t i n g Goods," a column in the Calvin student publication, Knight sports scribe Jim Lont has tried to sell us on the following information: "Thousands of f a n s will back me up when I say t h a t a Hope-Calvin contest is f a s t , rugged, and thrilling, but above all good basketball. If Gord will ask Russ DeVette, Hope's coach, Russ will tell him the same thing." We'll go along with the "thousands of f a n s " as f a r as the first three points, but will have to fall out of line when it comes to good basketball. However, we will have to make the concession t h a t this season's g a m e s were an improvement, and a g r e e with Calvin reserve coach Gord Buter who mentioned something to this effect to us following this year's first Dutch-Knight clash: T h a t was the best game I've ever seen between these two teams — they usually play a lousy game. As for seeking DeVette's opinion, we were inclined a t first to laugh t h a t one off, but decided it might be more interesting to get his viewpoint. We did, and suggest t h a t Lont find a reference more favorable to his cause. To suggest t h a t the type of ball played by Calvin in the February 27 g a m e at the Armory was sloppy would be utterly foolish. The Knights were red hot and they do have an outstanding ball club — we'd be the last to deny t h a t f a c t . To say t h a t Hope's play was sloppy would prove unhealthy. So in bringing the subject to a close once and f o r all (as f a r as this column is concerned) we'll say t h a t Calvin-Hope g a m e s in the past have been poorly played, and that although we can't name thousands who will support us, there is evidence t h a t there are a t least a few on our side of the fence. On the other hand, this year's g a m e s were an improvement, and it's our hope t h a t f u t u r e games will carry on that trend.

If there are any who doubt the necessity of a new nickname for Hope's athletic squads, we'd like to r e f e r them to the February 25 sports page of the Grand Rapids P r e s s which listed, side by side, the following contradictory heads: "Hope Upsets Kalamazoo," and "Kalamazoo Downs Dutch." Only a f t e r digging into the fine print does one come up with the solution — the first article deals with Hope's 65-60 victory over Kalamazoo College; the second pertains to Kalamazoo Central's 53-48 decision over Holland High. A substitute f o r the term "Dutch," if given enough publicity to remove all association between " D u t c h " and Hope, would alleviate the confusion resulting f r o m heads such as the example mentioned above. The student council's effort to find a new moniker by means of the current contest is a step f o r w a r d and should be given the support of every Hope student. Five bucks will buy you a hundred cups of coffee in the Kletz — and if you live t h r o u g h that, sixty years f r o m now you can take your grandson on your knee and say, " J a s p e r , I guess you know your old g r a m p s was the originator of t h a t nickname — t h a t one there at the top of the page." So get t h a t entry in today, and be sure to date it a couple days early so t h a t if somebody else steals your idea you'll still get the fin. e 8 S g g 8 8 8 8 8 S 8 8 8 e 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 i SSSSSS
