Aside f r o m these two awards there are two prizes offered for excellence in work that is a part of the regular course. Men's Adult Bible Class of Coopersville has made it possible to give a prize f o r the best essay on a subject chosen by the head of the department. This subject this year is "Luke, the Historian." Mr. Daniel C. Steketee, of Grand Rapids, has donated a fund, t h e proceeds of which are given a s a prize f o r the best essay on an assigned subject. This is a p a r t of the Senior course in evidences. Rewards A r e Various The Almon T. Godfrey prize in Chemistry is given for that student of the Senior class who has maintained the highest s t a n d a r d of work throughout the whole four years of the course in Chemistry. In the English department, the more notable of the prizes are the George Birkhoff prize for the best work done in English Literature by Junior students; the A. A. Raven prize of thirty dollars for the winner of the men's oratorical contest; and a woman's- prize in oratory. Winners of the last two receive A. J. Ackerman Cole's prize in debating, the privilege of representing the school in the 1929 M. 0 . T. meet is offered. A prize of twentyfive dollars is offered as the Vanderwerp prize for the Senior who has maintained the highest standard in oral and written English through the four years. Will (Jive Medals Other awards that attract much attention annually are the Southland medals, a gold medal for the woman of the Senior class who, according to the faculty, has maintained the "highest standard of all-around scholarship, character and usefulness" throughout the whole college course; and a silver medal given to the young woman of the- " A " class of the Preparatory school, under the same conditions.

Y" Group Hears Talk on Missions Miss Evelyn Zwemer of Holland spoke a t the Y. W. C. A. meeting Thursday evening in Wynants chapel. She has been connected with the New York board of Missions and gave an interesting description of the Church house situated on 25 E. 22nd Street, New York City, and of its cosmopolitan neighborhood. Miss Zwemer also spoke of the work done by the Young Women's League for Service, in its foreign stations in India, J a p a n and Arabia, as well as those at Winnebago, Dulce, Kentucky, Mexico, and others in the home field. Much is accomplished among the aliens and m i g r a n t workers. In closing, Miss Zwemer said t h a t although it is easy to support these enterprises with our money, it is well also to take them into consideration when planning a life work. A f t e r the meeting a short p r a y e r service was held f o r prayer week.

The Spring Vacation will prove a boon to the ambitious students who intend to compete for some of the many prizes offered by the school. The contests are numerous and include various lines of study. The Department of Biblical Lite r a t u r e offers several of these. The two main prizes f o r essays are the Mrs. Samuel Sloan prize for the best essay on the subject of foreign missions, and the Van Zwaluwenburg prize for the best essay on the subject of domestic missions.

ALUMNUS T A L K S Only a small body of the stud e n t s turned out last Thursday night to hear the p r o g r a m given by the "Wolverine F o u r " of Grand Rapids, but those who did enjoyed themselves immensely. The "Wolverine F o u r " have been giving p r o g r a m s and concerts for the past several winters and always leave a pleased audience. The " F o u r , " composed of Messrs. E. Larink, R. Vader, J . Reitberg, E. Morse, with R. Ritzema accompanying, are a very versatile and talented group. Mr. Ritzema played on his accordion a medley of hymns and some humorous selections as encores, which lent spice to the program. The sketch, " F u n in a Photograph Gallery," showed that the musicians are actors of no mean ability as well. Their voices, well trained and harmonizing perfectly, blend into a very rich quality of music. All the men are accomplished in their respective lines, and since they do this work a s a mere sideline, it is especially to their credit t h a t they have succeeded so well. The ticket money goes to the Athletic Association which has been running behind of late in its funds.

CENSORSHIP After the smoke has cleared from a recent disturbance at a neighboring university it may be well to comment upon the affair because it involves many an important principle. The reference is to the student outburst at the University of. Wisconsin following Pres. Glertn Frank's refusal to permit Mrs. Bertrand Russell to lecture on subjects associated with companionate marriages. The opposition mourns the passing of "liberal Wisconsin," which has stood as the bulwark of academic freedom in the country and is no more.

The President's "good taste and

common decency" defense is interpreted as a betrayal of the "Wisconsin idea." There are some who regard this censoring as a violation of the principle of the famous "free speech" tablet which speaks of "that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by w W h alone the truth can be found." Is it an affront to truth? Is it a defiant gesture intended

Pet notions ought not to

be given preference over principles. But if both of these questions are answered in favor of the opponents to censorship, there remains a point of larger significance. Can the truths of life be best found by searching life's unhappiest aspects?

TUNING IN It seems that this queer condition, we call life, is a sort of series of radio broadcasting and receiving stations, and that we "get" just about what we tune in on.

For instance, if

you're always looking for trouble, you'll pick it up.

If the

antennae of your heart and mind are searching only for the little things and the worthless things, it is pretty certain that over the wireless stretch of years there will come to you just about what you are expecting and deserving. There seems to be an over-abundance of petty grumbling and discontent on the campus of late.

Each student seems

to take pleasure in blurting out his many troubles, telling what an unfair deal he received from some instructor, complaining about how sick he is of school, and what not!


is to be gained by walking around with a chip on your shoulder, a scowl on your face, an evil thought in your mind, and an unpleasant word on your lips? If you can not send out.anything but mean thoughts, hateful thoughts, and gloomy thoughts towards your fellows, better close up your station and go out of business. will tune in on such "stuff" anyway.

to stifle all honest inquiry?

By Lily May Hawkins Two Co-eds get together f o r a bit of weighty discourse. "The value of a college education is that it increases your interests." "Yes, makes you think about the vital topics of the day.- Now, I like serious, worth while conversation." "Isn't it difficult to talk with someone who is uneducated?" "Yes, a person who knows nothing about the affairs of the world." "Look. Who is that going down the s t a i r s ? Clementine. Lean over and see who is waiting for her." "Horatio. What a silly smile. She lets him know that she is crazy about him." "And he keeps four girls on the string a t the same time." "Thanks be f o r a man I can trust. Alfredo never even thinks about another girl—he told me so himself." "Did Horatio ask her of his own free will to do to the Junior-Senior banquet, or had someone threatened h i m ? " "Here comes Jane. If you want a piece of news to go straight through the Dorm, at the greatest possible speed, just tell her." "You can't t r u s t a girl who gossips." "Did you notice what she has on ? I wouldn't be caught dead in such an outfit."


But if you really want

to send out hopeful, kindly, encouraging thoughts, there will be an endless audience willing and eager to listen in. Troubles are easy or hard to bear, just as we ourselves make them, and much depends on the kind of messages we receive and broadcast. Petty fault-finding indicates a shallow nature. And anyway, repetition of your troubles to others magnifies them in your own mind and burdens others with an additional load.

The Trinity Lutherans of Grand Rapids greatly surprised all bas^ ketball f a n s at the A. A. U. tournament last Friday night by handing a defeat to the Hope College Freshmen by the score of 28-17 in a very close and exciting game. This defeat eliminates the Frosh from f u r t h e r competition in the tournament and culminates a successful season for the yearling squad. This is the first year that Hope has had a Freshman team and foi a beginning the season was good The Frosh quickly developed into a fine combination a f t e r their initial defeat by the Sophs until at the end of the season a winning combination had been secured. We hop' that next year's yearling squad will be as good and will carry on the fine work started by the '31 team. Becker was the high light of the Frosh against the Furniture city five while Madsen and Carlberg were the stars of the Lutheran outfit.

The Detroit City College quintet recently won the championship of the rival conference. It might be a good idea to have the winners of the M. I. A. A. and the Michigan Intercollegiate Conference meet to decide the state championship next year.

The Court Season


The basketball _season of '27-'28 has just been brought to a close ind in going through the records made during the year we find some iccomplishments of which we night well be proud. Although we were defeated in m g a m e s - ' o u t of nineteen that were played, yet our opponents mtscored us by only eight points, he Orange and Blue rolling up .i :otal of 5S5 points.

of the defeats. Play Clean Ball The team played a very clean Vand of bail, the seven regulars averaging less than one personal foul each a game. Captain Martin led both individual scoring and scarcity of fouls. Captain Martin ran up a total of 104 points in nineteen games and had only 11 personals called on him. That certainly shows the clean sportsmanship displayed in the '27-'2i team. While Hope landed in Third place in the M. I. A. A. race, she defeated all the teams in the Association a t least once with the exception of Alma and Kalamazoo. And Hope played such close games with these two teams that they were extremely fortunate in gaining victories.

In the final game of their schedule the Juniors defeated the Fennville Independents on the Fennville floor in a very hard game by the score of 41-37. This game marked the close of a very successful season for the Juniors who have only lost one game and that to the Seniors by the close margin of two points in the class tournament. The entire team played well against Fennville, all showing to equal advantage.
