Student Council Discusses Constitution And Candidates For Spring Election Elections Two major items loom on the Student Council calendar for the coming month: election of next year's Student Council and class officers, and the amendment of the Council's constitution. Both issues were prominent on the agenda of last Monday night's meeting. Nominees for officers of Student Council were submitted to the Council. Sam Tomlinson, Knickerbocker; Jack Siebers, Fraternal and Rick Brandsma, Emersonian, head the list as presidential candidates. Vicepresidential nominees are Lynn Adams, Dorian; Judy DeRyke, Sibylline; Judy DeWitt, Delphi; Joan TenCate, Sorosis. Candidates for class presidencies were also disclosed. Senior class presidential nominees are Jim Bultman, Fraternal; John Kieft, Cosmopolitan; Gary Nederveld. Arcadian and John Blum, Emersonian. Seeking the junior class presidency are Dick Vander B o r g h, Emersonian; Mark Suwyn, Knickerbocker; D a v e Hollenbach, Arcadian; Fred Wezeman, Fraternal, and Chuck Christensen, Cosmopolitan. Sophomore nominees are Bruce Neckers, Cosmopolitan; Dean Overman, Arcadian; Paul Ransford, Independent, and Cal Poppink, Fraternal. It has been decided that Campaign Week will be April 12-18. Balloting will take place April 16 and 17, with Illumination Night, the traditional revelation of election winners, on Wednesday, April 18. Campaign procedure was formally changed, as the Student Council voted to adopt the recommendations of an Election Committee, headed by Jan Riemersma, which investigated traditional campaign practices on Hope's campus. In an effort to promote more personal contact, and more initiative on the part of candidates and backers, the committee offered several proposals to limit reliance on mass media. The committee's proposals include: limitation of one poster per candidate in every building except Phelps, Van Raalte, and Kollen, where two will be per-

mitted; erection of a joint display of all Student Council presidential candidates in Van Raalte l o b b y ; limitation of favors given in dining halls; conduction of an all-college assembly for Student Council presidential and vice-presidential candidates. In addition to these proposals, suggestions w e r e made that campaign posters be of an intellectual type, and that distribution of handbills be encouraged. Constitution Amendment The report of last Friday's balloting on the proposed constitution amendment evoked responses from many Council members and induced them to begin drafting another improved version. Results of the election, as reported, were 262 opposing and 141 in favor of the proposed amendment, a total of 403 votes. President Norman Kansfield commented that the defeat of the amendment Is a reflection of the caliber of work being done by the Council. Either Council members are not thinking the way students who elected them are thinking, or there is a lack of communication between the two. He proposed to begin working at that session for another amendment, to be submitted for

student-body approval the election of officers.


Members noted that failure of the last amendment indicated a lack of interest on the part of independents, who should have benefited by i n c r e a s e d representation. If independents had really wanted the elected seats, they could easily have taken the same, since independents outnumber organized students 2-1. At a meeting scheduled for independents to discuss the problems, on the eve of balloting, only one independent appeared. As the Council noted, if independents are not interested, why should they be represented? Discussion turned to concrete suggestions to be brought back to the student-body for informal, preliminary approval. The debate concerning members-atlarge involved method of election. ' • Items tentatively recommended for a new amendment include: two representatives from each fraternity and sorority, the class presidents, two elected independents, and eight membersat-large, two from each class, to be appointed by the Council upon submission of form.


Now is the time for mid-terms. These last few weeks before vacation find many students studying especially in the library.

Dr. Russell Kirk, well-known writer and speaker on conservative thought, educational theory, and literary criticism, will be a guest lecturer on campus Monday and Tuesday. On Tuesday evening Kirk will present a public lecture at 8 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel. The lecture, which is open to the public and students free of charge, will deal with the topic "Education in a Free Society." In addition to editing a magazine "University Bookman," Kirk is research professor of political science at C. W. Post College and University professor of Long Island University. He has spoken on nearly 150 American campuses, and to many other audiences. He is the author of many books, the bestknown of them "The Conservative Mind" which is perhaps the most widely read and reviewed work of political theory to be published in this century. Dr. Kirk has written critical introductions for several editions of standard scholarly reprints and some 400 of his essays and short stories have appeared in leading serious periodicals of the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, Norway, and Austria. Holding 6 university degrees, Professor Kirk has a bachelor of arts from Michigan State University 1940, a master of

arts from Duke University 1941, and a Doctor of Letters from St. Andrew's University in Scotland 1952 — the only American to hold the highest arts degree of the Senior Scottish University. He has an honorary Doctor of Literature degree from Boston College and from St. John's University, and an honorary Doctor of Laws from Park College. He has been a senior fellow of the American Council of Learned Societies, a Guggenheim fellow, and has received research grants from several foundations. He is an active member of several LAST WEEK This is the last Anchor before spring vacation. The next issue will be Friday, April 13 of the week school convenes followin? vacation. American, British, and Austrian scholarly and cultural societies. Although Dr. Kirk has been described by Gordon Keith Chalmers, Canon Bernard Iddings Bell, Senator Barry Goldwater, and others as the philosopher of American conservatism, his only political office is that of Justice of the Peace of Morton T o w n s h i p , Mecosta County, Michigan. On Monday evening, March 26, Dr. Kirk will address the faculty at its regular monthly meeting.

National International Relations Club Convention Brings Delegates From Hundred Colleges Next Month In just a few short weeks, many new faces will be seen on Hope's campus, and Hope students will have this unusual opportunity of meeting these people and sharing a common interest in world affairs with them. The occasion for all these new faces will be the 15th Annual AIRC National Conference to be held on our campus from April 9-12. Delegates from 600 colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada will be meeting on Hope's campus to discuss the theme of "United States Latin American Relations: Cooperation Or . . .?" Already the students at Hope have begun to make plans for conference with a great deal of enthusiasm. Carol Sikkema and Bob Jaehnig have been named Co-Chairmen of the conference and have been busily setting up various committees to handle all the details. Others very active in the preparations and who have attended previous National Conferences are Andrew Sens, Hope IRC President; and James McDowall, Midwest IRC VicePresident. Principal speakers for the Conference include: Dr. Zwemer, who will be the Keynote Speaker; Mr. Richard I. Phillips, Public affairs Adviser, Bureau of Inter-American Affairs, U. S. Department of State; Mr. Jack Vaughn, Chief of Latin-American Division, Peace Corps; and Miss Frances Foland, Associate

Editor of Intercom who has spent the past several months in South America surveying programs of economic and social development. The Conference will also be enriched this year by the presentation of several papers on specific problems in the topic area, prepared by several students of member clubs. The Hotel Warm Friend will be the headquarters of the Conference where the delegates will be staying and where registration will be held. NOTICE Do you want to prove that you are a "people"? And do you want to have balls and riots doing it? Do you enjoy asserting yourself in the rush of enthusiasm and joining the smile of "something well done"? Are you an advocator of "fun things"? Do you agree in substracting the drudgery from responsibility? Do you believe in being SUBTLE? Do you loathe the word "project"? Would you like to gather all of this into one glorious, memorable piece of time? Then remember the five most important words: APRIL 26 THROUGH MAY 2. This is even more valuable than knowing that the Mediterranean froze over in 1326!


More Than Rushing The storm is past. After a brief period of uncertainty concerning the fate of the sorority rushing system, a vote of the Panhellenic Board assured a spring rush program for this spring. At the same time, however, on the advice of President Lubbers, a committee was set up to study the problems which the present rush system creates. It Is easy enough to believe, now that spring rush is a certainty, that no changes will develop yet this year. This Is definitely not the intention, however, of those most concerned with the problems. The committee hopes to come up with the needed revisions in the system before bidding time. Whether the committee is able to find solutions to the problems so quickly or not is really Immaterial. The point is that every time bidding meetings come along distaste forms in the mouths of many sorority members at the thought of the procedures which will be used. Just the thought of having to judge other girls by such measuring sticks as seem necessary is enough to make bidding a mighty unpleasant experience. New members attending their first bidding meeting are often shocked, especially when they stop and wonder what these same girls were saying about them a year before. Not that it's always like this. Sometimes a sorority is unanimously for certain rushees and the whole process seems sweet and ffood — once in a while. Unfortunately, nearly everyone has a different measuring stick which makes unanimity a less than frequent occurrence. For the sororities to go on blindly defending the present system as it stands Is both unrealistic and impractical. It is unrealistic because most sorority members recognize the need for changes. It is impractical because if the evils in the system are so Inherent that the sororities themselves cannot remove them, then it is not at all unlikely that the whole system might be replaced. —K. B.

Two Weeks O f Culture Whatever the lack of culturally broadening' activities there have been this year, the past two weeks and next week have been and are relatively full with speakers, concerts, and recitals. Last week Mr. Roy Johnson, eminent pianist from the University of Kansas, presented two concerts which utterly amazed those who heard him. His technique was flawless and his ability unmatched as shown in the concert he gave Friday afternoon. He played Chopin's first book of twelve etudes in less than 35 minutes. The deplorable element was not from Mr. Johnson but from the students who were not there. One professor was heard to say in private and to his class that with the lack of interest or appreciation for the finer things in life by students, it is little wonder that the twentieth century is a cultural dearth compared to the past. In contrast to Mr. Johnson, Mr. Millar, conductor of the Kalamazoo Symphony orchestra and protege of Leonard Bernstein, had little to say. As one student said half way through the all-college lecture, "The same information could be had on the back of the latest stereo record by the New York Philharmonic." The record is always better than reading the information on the cover. Mr. Millar should have brought his orchestra. Bringing an orchestra of any repute to town is expensive. It would be impossible for the Cultural Committee to attain funds to bring Mr. Millar and orchestra to campus. However, there was an orchestra in town last weekend, the St. Louis Symphony. Saturday night found many students without tickets wishing to have one and grumbling that they had not bought a Community Concert Season ticket at the beginning of the year. All that can be said is to wait until next year. Not to be outdone by any of the national names and groups, the Hope College orchestra is having Mr. Sidney Harth, first violinist with the Chicago Symphony, as guest soloist in a concert being given this Sunday in the Chapel. . On Tuesday Mr. Russel Kirk should be the highlight of the year of the speakers that have been on campus. Without a doubt. Kirk is more logical than Drew Pearson, more clever th^yi Bergan Evans, and more prolific than Millar. Besides Mr. Kirk's scholarship and eruditeness are challenging and stimulating, his political stand makes him one of the intellectual (as opposed to emotional) leaders of the conservative movement in the U. S. Mr. Kirk writes a column called "From the Academy" in the National Review which is a witty, satirical and factual answer to the liberal New Republic. In this column he writes on many subjects from economics to education. The latter is one of his pet subjects, especially the quality of education in universities and colleges large and small. College is a place to broaden one's horizons. Cultural events such as these are part of college. The regrettable fact is that there is not more money to sponsor more top quality speakers on campus. Colleges that have more resources than Hope such as Oberlin, Carleton, and Swarthmore, have speakers every week or two. Even with the usual student apathy and lack of attendance, let alone excitement over speakers and concerts, there should be more campus guests in order to waken the students from their intellectual and cultural doldrums. It is for this reason that the Cultural Committee, in support of the Anchor, is applying to the Sperry Hutchison Corporation for funds to sponsor more speakers next year. Also, because of good business economics, the Anchor will have some funds left over from this year. With the money the Anchor wants to sponsor an eminent speaker either this year or next. The possibility is to sponsor Kubitschek from Brazil for the AIRC convention which is having trouble finding top speakers. The purpose V * ™ s o m e challenging speaker to push the campus fence sitters oil tne fence. —G. W.

OTHERS SPEAK OUT Clinical Blooper Dear Miss Bloop and Masses, I am a humble, conscientious college student who believes that all is for the best, and this is the best of all possible colleges. Nothing has led me to doubt this, that is nothing until my little incident at the best of all crumbling cottages last week. I developed a severe pain in the lower right abdomen and proceeded to the clinic for advice. After the routine routine, they announced that I had the symptoms of appendicitis. Immediately upon which they gave me a bottle of liquid to take and sent me home. The first thing I was taught in Red Cross first aid was that when appendicitis was suspected you never issue any liquids of the type issued me. Before leaving I asked this best of all possible nurses what my trouble was. Her answer was simple and a stock one — the vims. (Can you imagine what the clinic would be like if there was nothing like a virus known?) The pain persisted and increased until finally I went to Holland Hospital for help. Their diagnosis was much different and much more dangerous. I ask the administration, what kind of operation is being run at the corner of 12th and College? Will no action be taken now, or must someone die under a wrong diagnosis first? The best to you, "Rocky" Paulsen

Convention Time Dear Fellow Students, During the week following our spring vacation we will have the special opportunity of hosting a national conference of students. Delegates to the fifteenth national A.I.R.C. conference will be converging on our campus from all across the nation. Hosting such a delegation is both an honor and a responsibility, not only for our own International Relations Club, but for each of

us as students and representatives of Hope College. ' Having this conference on our campus offers us a special opportunity to take an integral interest in all of the activities of the week. We will have on our campus some of the finest political and governmental minds of our era. We will be able to meet with students from other schools and backgrounds than our own. We will be able to participate in this conference to a much greater degree than any other college in the nation. I am sure that this is an opportunity for which each of us has been hoping. Really get excited about this conference and involve yourself in all of its mechanics and activities. Attend as many of the meetings and sessions as It is possible for you to attend. Many of the delegates will be visiting our campus for the first time. Let's do our best to make their visit and the conference a real outstanding event for them and us. Sincerely, Norm Kansfield

Council Amendment Dear Sir: The defeat of the revised student council constitution last week leaves one question above all others unanswered. Where does the Student Council get the power it needs to operate effectively? A poster displayed in Van Raalte lobby on the day of election led many to believe that the Student Council was powerless because of dictatorial control by representatives of the fraternities. I take issue with this assumption. The constitution itself does not guarantee power to the representative boy. Power DOES come from the amount of interest and the volume of support given by interested students. There are, no doubt, a

number of independent students truly interested in campus government.- Nevertheless, the bulk of the concern for student activities lies within the social organizations. It is doubtful to me that independants would better be represented by Student Council members elected by a whole class which seldom has meetings. Further, it seems very likely that a good number of these members would belong to social organizations. If I am wrong in saying that a Student Council's power stems out of the amount of interest on the part of its constituency, then this letter may have just as well not been written. Let all of us, then, show that we support the Council and, more important, show a concern for student governmtent. Richard Irwin

Council Answers An open letter to all students: We commend all of you who gave your time and energy to discuss and to vote upon the proposed revisions to the Student Council constitution. We are grateful to all of you who have made suggestions for f u r ther future r e v i s i o n s and amendments. At the Student Council meeting of March 19 we began again to reconstruct such a constitutional revision. We are convinced that a change Is necessary before next year. We hope that you will rethink the entire issue and bring any suggestion you may have to the Student Council meeting to be held in Room 209 Van Raalte Hall at 6:30 p.m. Next Monday, March 26.

Clinical Diagnosis To the tditor: I am taking this opportunity to address this letter to the individual who wrote the article in last week's Anchor in reference to the College Health Service, and who doesn't have the backbone nor the manners, to reveal her true identity. I can see that such an individual took little time, if any, to analyze the situation before sticking her foot in her mouth. Perhaps such an ungrateful individual has a shingle hanging on her door which enables her to judge the capabilities of a fully accredited doctor (s) and his staff. If so, I must say that the entire medical world, and the American Medical Association, are looking for such a person. Could it also be that the author of last week's article is an R.N. and now considers herself above such practices? I feel compelled to say that I think last week's article was unfair and showed poor taste (Continued to page 8)

Set Up The Hand A n d Have Time To Play That Extra Trick To W i n

Facts Few People Know About The Common Cold Experience is not the best teacher — if it were, the average American would be the world's foremost expert on the common cold. As a nation, we catch 500 million colds a year. Each person in an urban family has an average of 4.7 colds a year, according to information obtained from the Schering Corporation. Despite all this firsthand experience, however, many of us are woefully uninformed about how colds are caught and how best to cope with them. The results of our ignorance are costing us billions a year in missed workdays and misused medicines. Are you relying on cold fact— or wishful assumptions? Test yourself on these questions and see: 1. Does age or sex make any difference in susceptibility to colds? 2. Are colds caused by viruses or bacteria? 3. Does one cold make you immune to another cold? 4. Antihistamines are effective cold cures — true or false? 5. Can some people carry cold germs without catching cold themselves? 6. Can you catch a cold simply by listening to a cold victim talk — without touching articles he's handled? 7. Is there any truth in the old adage, "Feed a cold and starve a fever"? 8. Is there any one treatment that can relieve all the symptoms of a cold? 1. Yes. According to a survey made in England, women are more susceptible than men, in a ratio of 55 to 43. Children under five are the most susceptible age group. 2. The most common cold is primarily a virus disease. Bacteria are responsible for some which may result from a cold.

The unpleasant symptoms such as sneezing, nasal discharge, and nasal blockage are caused by the release of histamine, a substance that enlarges the tiny blood vessels (capillaries) of the nasal mucous membrane. 3. Yes but for a very, very short time. That's why you can have two colds within the same month, or several in the course of a winter. 4. False. Antihistamines can neither prevent nor cure colds, but they may relieve the allergy or hay fever-like symptoms, particularly when taken right at the cold's onset. A particularly effective antihistamine is Chlor-Trimeton (Chlorprophenpyridamine maleate, if you insist on the full scientific jawbreaker), used in cold medicines like Coricidin. 5. Yes. Children are thought to make especially good carriers. 6. Yes, Handling articles such as cups and towels which a cold victim has used is a source of infection. Direct contact with a patient who has a cold, however, is probably the most common source of infection. 7. No. A normal or light diet, with increased amounts of fluid is probably the most desirable for both of these conditions. An abnormal diet of any kind places a strain on the system which is already trying to fight an infection. 8. Yes, in many cases. A multi-purpose cold medicine like Coricidin contains ingredients designed to treat a variety of cold symptoms: antihistamine to relieve the "allergy" symptoms, aspirin and phenacetin to help control aches, pains and fever — plus mildly stimulating caffeine to relieve the washed out feeling produced by a cold. Coricidin in syrup form relieves cold symptoms and controls the characteristically dry hacking cough associated with many colds.

For Independent Study?

By Italiaander

by Sue Spring New plans for our school year have been tossed about lately. Among the plans is a possible break between semesters for a month of i n d e p e ndent study. Those interviewed this week were asked to commcnt on their feeling about such a program; its worth, and the benefit it would provide for the Hope College caliber of student. "The prospect of having several weeks free to work on research between the first and second semesters seems plausible. However, it would require a very mature student body to make it successful. It is an intellectual challenge which I feel a college student should be ready to accept. With the possible exception of the freshmen who have not decided upon a field- of concentration, I feel that it could be a very successful venture in the progress of Hope's curriculum." This is the opinion of Mary Gouwens, '63. How does a freshman feel about this? Would it be a waste for that class? Sue Prins, freshman, thinks that she could use such a time. "I like the idea of independent study. The individual would be able to expand and study his major interest more thoroughly. It would be a rest from first semester, too. Of course, there are those students that wouldn't use the time, but they would only hinder themselves." Sophomore Carol Hoeksema wasn't definitely for or against the idea. "We are supposed to be here to study. The kids that wouldn't profit from such an experience aren't going to profit f r o m college anyway. It would be a chance to work f u r ther and deeper than is possible in the regular class situation. We would still need regular progress reports, of course. I wonder, though, if our city has sufficient facilities to make this worthwhile." Another junior, Jack Siebers, is all for such a program. "An independent study time would be excellent for developing initiative and responsibility in Hope students. We are ready for this type of work, for this development of the maturity of our • minds."

Senior Lewis Scudder isn't won over by the form of such a plan, although he feels that the plan is a good idea. "I don't feel that a month is enough time," he says. "If, as in some other schools, we could have a year long, three-hour course of such a nature, we would benefit. Thus, ideally, the student would spend nine hours a week in independent study and throughout an elongated period would gain." Are we, as the majority of these confronted with the question feel, actually ready for a time of free delving into fields unknown? . Perhaps we should reflect on those all too true words of a sophomore Dave Hollenbach, in his letter to the Editor last week. "I was at Hope College . . . the orchestra was playing in an empty chapel, a noted speaker sat alone in a conference room; back in the dorm there were sounds of guitars, cards and snoring (some were studying with grim impatient faces); and the Holland Theatre played to a packed audience."

Placing the refreshments on the stage of the Civic Center was just one of a couple new ideas that were used to make the All-College Formal something special last Friday night.

Fried Conventions In N. Y. Dr. Paul G. Fried, chairman of the History Department, will attend a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Council on Student Travel in New York City this week-end. Dr. Fried, will also take part in a discussion on the drafting of a guide to the evaluation of overseas programs. Hope College has been a member of this council for the last five years and has helped in past years to arrange for transportation. Also on the week-end agenda for Dr. Fried will be a meeting with the Association of International Relations Clubs, as a member of the board.

Nearly 150 Hope College German students are currently taking part in an experimental reading program, featuring the novel, "Hans und Jean," by Rolf Italiaander. The program, initiated by Mr. E. F. Gearhart, Associate Professor of German, is designed to fulfill a need for aural-oral material in German on the intermediate level. Hope is one of several colleges participating in this program. The author of the featured novel was a visiting professor last spring on Hope's campus. His book deals with the effects of the partitioning of Germany and gives the American student an insight into problems conironting European youth during and immediately following World War II. The text is an abridged edition of the novel of the same title published in 1951. It was edited by Mr. G e a r h a r t with the assistance of Miss Ingrid von Reitzenstein.

"Where everyday experiences are shared, differences of race, creed and color fade away." Carol Sikkema, a senior political science major, and Jack Jenner, a junior history major will be able to participate in a inique experiment in human relationships. Both s t u d e n t s have been chosen to be members of the International House Seminar Program which will be held March 21-24, at the International House in Chicago. They will be among thirty-four representatives from seventeen colleges and universities located in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin. In Chicago they will live at the International House where they will have opportunities to meet graduate students f r o m all parts of the world as well as from practically all states of the U.S.. This experiment is designed to bring a selected group of Midwest junior and senior college students in contact with some of the factors that are evidences of the change in international emphasis.

Chief Cook Is Product Of His Own Cooking by Jan Rietveld "We use him for a weight," commented Mr. Raymond of Slater Food Service. "You see, the floors are a little uneven, and Charley holds them down."

Charley Feifer, the chef, is responsible for all the meals served on Hope's campus. He is also the vice-president in charge of m a i n t a i n i n g rapport among cooks, bosses and waiters. He thinks Mr. Raymond just a bit unusual, but then who doesn't. "Charley gets along with everybody!" says Mr. Po. At one time an innocent young Indian chief, Charley was not always a weight. He's been eating his own cooking too long. Even at home, Charley cooks.

During the depression, Charley took the only job he could find, as a bus boy in a hotel in Detroit. Within 15 years, he worked his way to the position of chef in the same hotel, learning as he went along. His experiences before his 2V4 years with Slater included some time as an army cook in Texas, 15 years with the Detroit Leland Hotel and jobs at a number of smaller restaurants. Hope is his first college job.


Phi Omega

Initiates New


In a ceremony Monday night in Phelps Conference Room, the Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity formally initiated twelve men as pledges. The initiation ceremony was conducted by president Ken Vinstra, assisted by Pete Paulsen, Garth Knutson, and vice-presidents Dave DeVisser and Jim Slee. The new pledges are Henry Bolt, Henry Brown, Dick Dickson, Bruce Gillies, Paul K. Hesselink. Terry McGilvra, Dave Russell, Mike Rybarczyk, Ralph Shepard, Dave Stehouwer, Don Thompson, Pete Van Lierop, and Ron Warnet. Officers of the pledge class are Pete Van Lierop, president; Paul Hesselink, vice-president; Bruce Gillies, secretary; Ron Warnet, treasurer. Under the guidance of these men and pledging chairman Dave DeVisser, each pledge will complete a minimum of twenty hours of work on service projects before he can become an active. Current projects include the afternoon mail service, the P e n n y Carnival booth, the Hope College float for the Tulip Festival, and the organization of a men's intramural softball league.

In about 9 hours of work per day, Charley feeds approximately 725 people. And he completely enjoys Hope College, the student and Holland, Michigan. The Slater help think "he's an absolute panic!" Students are intrigued with his cute little hat and often ask to borrow it.

Receives Summer Grant Mr. William Oostenink, of the Hope College Biology Department, has received a National Science Foundation grant for summer study at the University of Oregon. Included in the grant are travel and living expenses. Beginning June 18, he will spend eight weeks studying problems in marine biology at the University of O r e g o n ' s Marine Biology Station at Charlestown, Oregon.


Charley's h o b b i e s include bowling and fishing. But his secret loves are telling jokes and watching "witty" TV shows. Charley lives in Holland with his wife and a terrier — a dog. Among his relics of the good old times when the Detroit Tigers still won the pennant, is a front page of a newspaper. The headline reads: PEIFER COOKS TIGERS TO VICTORY.

Mr. Peifer is the friendly cook in Phelps Hall who cooks for all boarding students on campus.

Concert Master of Chicago Symphony To Solo W i t h Hope Orchestra Sunday The distinquished American violinist, Sidney Harth, will appear as soloist with the Hope College orchestra on Sunday. The concert will be conducted by Dr. Morrette Rider of the faculty and will be held in Dimnent Memorial Chapel at 4 p.m. Mr. Harth is currently concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Prior to his arrival in Chicago he was concertmaster of the Louisville Symphony Orchestra and assistant conductor of that orchestra as well as first violinist in the Louisville String Quartet. He was chairman of the Department of Strings at the Uni-

versity of Lou'sville School of Music and has been concertmaster of the Casals Festival in Puerto Rico and concertmaster of the Peninsula Festival in Fish Creek, ^Wisconsin. Mr. Harth was the first American to place in the finals of Poland's Wieniawki competition for violinists a few years ago and received overwhelming applause and acclaim from Polish and other iron curtain critics and newspapers. In 1950 he joined the eminent musicians Serkin, S'zgieti, Stern and Horszowski in the Parades Festival. In addition to his work as concertmaster of the Chicago

Symphony he appears frequently as soloist with m a j o r orchestras in this country and abroad and is a member of the faculty of DePaul University in Chicago. He was born in Cleveland. Ohio of Austrian parents and began the study of the violin at the age of 4. His training was at Western Reserve University and with Georges Enesco. His concert career was launched in 1948 with the winning of the Naumburg Award followed by recitals in New York and various radio appearances. Mr. Harth will perform the "First Concert in G Minor" by Max Bruch with the college orchestra. His appearance is part of the orchestra's plan to present world-renown soloists with the Hope College orchestra at regular intervals during the year's period. The program will open with the well-known Schubert "Overture to Rosamunde" followed by two preludes by the English composer Frederick Delius. Following Mr. Harth's appearance, the orchestra will play a recently composed composition by Igor Stravinski entitled "Norwegian Sketches" and will conclude the program with the "Symphonic March for Orchestra" by Alexander Tcherepnine.

It was also agreed that it was up to the individual fraternities to set spring initiation. Several fraternities are planning to initiate spring pledges immediately. "The Scholastic Trophy will be presented Tuesday," president Brandsma went on to inform the

On West Coast Tomorrow night, March 24, will climax months of work and planning on the part of Dr. and Mrs*. Lubbers and many others. Three hundred friends of Hope, of which the m a j o r i t y arc alumni, will gather in Los Angeles, California, with President and Mrs. Lubbers for a campaign dinner similar to the one held in New York City last year. The purpose of the dinner is to raise funds with the e m phasis on alumni contributions. Mr. Henry Steffens, College Treasurer, and Mrs. Marian Stryker, Alumni Director, are also in California for the occasion. Dr. Lubbers will leave Los Angeles late Saturday night and fly to Chicago for the convention of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, of which he is vicepresident. He will return to the campus at the end of the week.

Council. The trophy was not presented last week as scheduled because the Dean's office had not finished computing the averages. New business centered around problems the fraternities are having with the up-keep of the houses. After some discussion on the needs, Jim Schaap and Gary Morton were appointed to a committee to see the business manager of the college concern-

ing some of the problems. The Fraters would like some seed and fertilizer to put their yard back in shape and the Emmies and the Knicks are concerned about having frat houses next year during the construction of the new men's dormitory. President Brandsma a d j o u r n ed the meeting after treasurer Kelyla reminded the fraternities who had not turned in the second semester dues to do so.

After considering several points such as Student Council elections being that week, the- five fraternities present voted to keep the dates as set orginally.

Mr. Oostenink also received two other grants which he was forced to give up, a grant to study radiation biology at Syracuse University, and a stipend to participate in a study of the evolution of the vascular tissues which will be undertaken at Vanderbilt University this summer.

The stained glass window of the Chapel is the background for a section of the chapel choir. The whole choir will be going on tour spring vacation in Canada and the East.

Chapel Choir To Give Concerts In Canda. East by Jan Rietveld The sixty-four voice Chapel Choir, arrayed in their exciting yellow - orange - scarlet - purple - black - blue and white robes are anxious for the annual spring season. Directed by Dr. Robert Cavanaugh and chaperoned by Mrs. Mary Tollman, the choir will leave Holland March 30 at 12:00 for a twoweek concert tour. Traveling an estimated total of 3,000 miles in 10 days, the choir is planning eighteen to twenty concerts in churches and high schools. Beginning in Detroit, Michigan, the choir will move on to Canada, New York and New Jersey. The tour will include concerts in Roxbury, Schoharie, Kingston, Scarsdale, Bronxville, Statten Island, Hudson, Dumont, Pompton Plains, and Ridgefield Park, all located, in the New York-New Jersey area. Stops of special interest for the midwesterners of the group will include New Brunswick Theological Seminary, Riverside Church, InterFaith Center, Niagara Falls, Howes Caverns, the New York Ferry, The Biltmore Hotel and, of course. New York City in general. The sacred concert will consist of five groups. Parts one, three and five will be sung by the entire chorus. The Women's Choir will sing ttyree numbers for section two of the program and the Men's Choir is responsible for part four. These sections are trained by Mr. Anthony Kooiker and Mr. Roger Rietburg, respectively. The program includes n u m bers by Purcell, Palestrina, Haydn, Canning, Earls, Corsi, Rachmaninoff, Lotti, Davison, and Bright. Concluding the fifth group will be a glorious rendition of the Battle Hymn of the Republic; the audience will join

the choir in singing the last stanza. The final number will be, of course, the Hope College Alma Mater Hymn, written and composed by Dr. Cavanaugh. Already the choir members have received their itineraries, traveling arrangements and reservations, and sheets of rules. Final details, still to be completed, include memorization of numbers and packing of suitcases. A stop in a church for a concert includes much more than sixty-five people donning robes and singing merrily. A display of Hope College life portrayed in pictures must be set up; records of the Choir must be readied for selling; the tux, ribbons and fake shirt fronts for the fellows must be prepared; students must be fed and paired off with hosts; buses must be emptied and reloaded; times for

by Robert L. Green Fashion Director of Playboy Magaiine There is neither a full nor sloppy line to be found in men's clothes this spring and summer. The shape is the "tall look." Suits, jackets and slacks are cut along the lean, lithe lines demanded by young men who have influenced the entire market. Every trick of line and design that slim down and stretch out the well-fed figure of less than towering height is being used. Ski and sea are the hottest fashion trends in outerwear for summertime. Winter sportswear items have been translated into summer clothes: ski stretch pants into lightweight slacks and jackets, hoods on many different jackets, also draw string bottoms on slicker cloths. Nautical motifs are on everything (but watch it — a little motif, anchors and flags, etc., goes a long way). The best of the boating trend are the waterrepellant poplins in flag designs. "Stretch" fabrics (originated

Symphonette Heads South The Hope College Symphonette, a small orchestra of 26 players selected each year from the larger college orchestra, will leave Holland on Monday, April 2, for its eighth extended concert tour. The group is under the direction of Dr. Morette Rider of the Hope Music faculty and will feature Gail Schaberg, flutist, and Albert Schaberg, hornist, as soloists. This year's tour will include stops in Indianapolis, April 2; Cincinatti, April 3; McKee, Kentucky, April 4; Lexington, Kentucky, April 5; St. Augustine, departure must be established and announced; "Prof." must locate his "tails," and the inevitable music stand must be set up. The choir is giving a pre-tour open rehearsal for all those interested in auditing the program. It will be held Thursday, March 29, at 4:00 p.m. in Dimnent Chapel. The choir will present its entire program; all are invited.

Florida, April 6; Cocoa, Florida, April 7; Deerfield Beach, Florida, April 8; Lake Worth, Florida, April 9; Miami, April 10; Miami Beach, April 11; Tampa, April 12; and Clearwater, Florida, April 13. By the end of this tour the group will have traveled approximately 25,000 miles through 30 states to present nearly 200 concerts during the past eight seasons. Activities of the Symphonette have been given wide recognition in professional periodicals and other national publications.

Ugly Man Contributions Total Nearly 500 Dollars Contributions totaling $448.13 were made to Prestatie Huis by Hope College students making cash votes to elect the winner of the first Ugly Man on Campus contest sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega, the college's service fraternity. Winner of the contest held last week was the representative of the Fraternal Society. A total of $135.84 was amassed in penny votes for the "creature from College Avenue." The Fraters will be awarded an e n graved plaque at the All-College Formal on March 16. Second place went to the Emersonian Fraternity whose entrant received "votes" totaling $117.24. Third was the Knickerbocker Fraternity with $97.90 and fourth was the Arcadian Fraternity with $66.53. A box

for those who were undecided collected $30.62. Although the identity of the ugly man was supposedly to be concealed by his make-up, it is commonly known that the winner was a member of the basketball team who is a junior from Warwick Estates, New York. He went by the name "Spidernostril Vanderhillskivisher." "We want to thank the students for their generous support of this project," said Steve Havlicek, chairman of the contest. "The returns will aid a school which has accomplished much and will be able to accomplish much more with this help." Prestatie Huis is a school for mentally retarded children in the Holland area.

Ascots are gaining in popularity and are very useful as a bold color accent or when used in subtle shades to tone down a bright jacket or sweater. Fashion Detail: The pocket handkerchief (all white or colored silk square) worn in the breast pocket of a business suit can either be a touch of sophistication or a bit of cornball. Avoid the precisely folded points. The handerkerchiefs either should be in casual fold or in the "puff fold." The straight even line is definitely square and out. Color: The spring and summer scene is bright and dynamic with past raw "hot" shades having cooled down a bit. Color takes on a white, lighter appearance — about a frosted quality. There is a blaze of color in swimwear with the shorter boxer type the most popular shape. Note: The most predominant color impact is being felt from new style treatments of the classic red, white and blue. Look for the upcoming fashion trend of the use of white and whitened effects in the summer wardrobe. You'll see it in slacks, blazers and shoes — a clean, fresh, cool look for summertime. Wardrobe Hint: Balance your wardrobe with one dark and subdued jacket. The dusky blues are running strong. Note: A new model in sports jackets is the 1962 version of the double-breasted coat with a rounded front and a button-off back belt. Comfort is the important feature in the summer headwear. Straws will increase in popularity. Many men who disdain dress hats may find the "right thing" for them in a beach or fun hat.

As the peasant soup on one country becomes a gourmet's delight in another country, the stitched "workshirt" look is moving towards a high fashion acceptance. The fresh thought for sport shirts is double duty — on the beach, at the club, in the garden or any place under the sun. Typical is the sport shirt cut along the lines of the cardigan sweater or sports coat (rounded front, three buttons, et al.) Summer sweaters are seasoned for summer comfort. The world now is "shirting-weight" sweaters and there is a wide choice of knit and texture. We endorse the "uncluttered" and classic lines. Fashion First: The matching cardigan and shirt set — same yam, same weight, same texture. These sweatermates can give you a "Fashion First" this summer.

No less significant will be the appearance of Jack Vaughn, chief of the Latin American division of the Peace Corps, Richard Phillips of the State Department Bureau of Inter-American affairs and Miss Frances Foland, author and associate editor of Intercom. A new wrinkle in AIRC Conferences, the presentation of a student-prepared paper on the subject area assures a "meatier" conference in terms of worthwhile subject matter outside of plenary sessions, sets a new standard for student participation in a Conference program, and gives students the opportunity to compare notes and observations on international problems. We have one problem which the Committee can't solve by itself. We need the enthusiastic and whole-hearted support of the Hope student body to create an environment conducive to a creative, meaningful exchange of ideas. This is no "egghead" appeal. It's no secret that the best way to create the above-mentioned atmosphere is to indulge in simple participation, not just in the "profound considerations on the manifold significances of the metamorphoses confronting our culture," but in getting to know our counterparts from other schools, talking with them, helping them where possible, and engaging them on as many levels apart from the intellectual as we can. This is what we look for the Hope student body to do. Interested people can start by registering as delegates to the conference themselves; it will be announced soon how this can be done. Then contact co-chairmen Bob Jaehnig or Carol Sikkema to express your willingness to assist. Then prepare for a broadening experience, quite unlike that produced by conventional scholarship.

FEAT Pitching Is Key For A Successful Season;

by Bob Kreunen With the official opening of spring there is increased activity in all phases of tennis, baseball, and track. While much of the preliminary conditioning is still taking place indoors the scene of some of the activity has shifted to the outside. A capsule rundown on the progress being made and the results that can be expected in each of these sports follows. TENNIS Of the spring sports there is little doubt that tennis will be Hope's chief claim to fame in 1962 and probably the only chance the Dutch will have for a league championship. With no apparent weaknesses and real strength in superior depth the Dutch will find themselves fighting it out with Kalamazoo for the MIAA championship. The Hornets will be tough to beat and should be given the nod. Expect a second in tennis. BASEBALL The obvious weakness of this year's baseball team is the shortage of capable pitchers. This could prove to be especially costly in conference play where all games are scheduled as double-headers. A solid defense and good hitting should win several ball games but there is no chance for a conference championship here. Expect a fourth in baseball. TRACK With a very few proven performers, how well this year's track team will do is anyone's guess. The weakness of the team will be in the lack of real first place threats on MIAA Field Day. (Last year the Dutch managed only one first in the conference meet, that a record breaking 880 yard run by Jim Rozeboom who has graduated.) The Dutch should manage to get enough seconds, thirds, and fourths to beat Adrian, Olivet, and Alma. Expect a fourth in track.

OTHERS SPEAK and judgement; however, the most distasteful part is that the author of it is still soliciting others to write similar letters. The young lady who is the author of last week's letter, and other individuals, fails to realize that the clinic is restricted as to the type of drugs and medications it is allowed to dispense, and that the cost of these medications, along with other operating expenses, is a sizeable sum; yet, the college still provides this service to all students and employees at a very minimum fee, if any. It appears as if those individuals who do the most complaining are the ones who want the most (provided there is no cost) and those who run to the clinic with the most minute scratch, expecting to be pampered. I am positve that any student who has had the need for help

Ten Returning Lettermen Keep Hopes High by Jack Cook The pitch! The batter swings! Strike one! Baseball season is here and Hope is preparing for another season of M.I.A.A. competition under coach Daryl Siedentop. Last year the "Flying Dutch" finished with a 8-7 season record which included a 7-5 record in league competition which proved good enough for second place in a rough M.I.A.A. This year Hope is looking forward to another successful season. However, the loss of the three top pitchers on last year's

squad could prove to be its undoing. Lost from last year's squad are: Bruce Hoffman, all conference pitcher; Norm Schut, third baseman; and John Vandenburg, second baseman. Sharky Vander Woude and Neil Goodrich, both pitchers, are also lost because of schedule conflicts. Although Hope has lost five lettermen from last year's squad they have ten lettermen coming back. Those returning are: Jim Bultman, all conference shortstop; Bob Reid, all conference centerfielder and second lead-

ing hitter in the league last year; Ron Venhuizen, outfielder; Art Kramer, who was a catcher last year but will be switched to second base this year; Ron Vander Molen, third baseman; Cliff Cross, rightfielder; Jim Von Till, pitcher; Gary Schaap, pitcher; Steve Nordstrom, first baseman; Glen Van Wieren, played first base last year but will be switched to pitcher this year; rnd Nelson Te Croney outfielder. Along with these players Hope will have two players who played two years ago, Larry Dykstra. a pitcher, and Keith Balcom, a catcher.

well. Head basketball coach Russ De Vette paid one of the highest tributes possible in saying, "We've never had a better captain."

Newcomers to the team include freshmen: Bill Hill, a three sports-man, football, basketball, and baseball; John Van Beloir, outfielder; Virg Baker and Cal Poppink, infielders; and Bob Allen, pitcher. New members of the squad other than freshman are Jim Wiegerink, a transfer from Duke, and Ed Van Dongen, a junior who is out for the first time and will pitch.

Buys is the fourth Hope player in five years to win the coveted award. He succeeds Ray Ritsema who won the award in 1957-58 and 1959-60 and Paul Benes who won in 1958-59. Last year's winner was Vince Giles of Adrian.

Hope has no long ball hitters. However, there should be no lack of steady hitting for the "Dutch" and their defense is good, especially up the middle. The season would seem to hinge on the ability of the pitching staff to hold up under fire.

Players Vote Senior Ekdal Buys Most Valuable Player in M I A A

Ekdal Buys Jr., senior cocaptain of the 1961-62 Hope College basketball team was named the Most Valuable Player in the Michigan Intercollegiate A t h l e t i c Association earlier this week. In the voting by the players of the MIAA Buys narrowly edged out Carl De Kuiper of Calvin and Gordon Rodwan of Kalamazoo for the Bosch Award given annually to the outstanding player in the played on a league basis with conference.
