Y. M. C. A. MEN HOPE READY FOR HOLD LIVE DEBATE PEORIA CLASSIC Y. M. ('. A. DEBATK ON AMERICA'S SPIRITUALITY Dill Maat versus Roy N a t tress Uesolved; That America is ^rowin^ Spiritually. Hill Maat—Negative Wo must admit t h a t there is a Rreal deal of spirituality found in Holland, hut we must rememhor that Holland is an exceptional city. In this city wo rnjoy a spiritual environment to a decree that is not reached hy any other city in the country without doubt. Now in considering this (|uestion we must look at the facts of the situation a s they are found in the country and not allow ourselves to bo narrowed by our own unique surroundings. Let us look a t the relations which exist between two of the leading: factions in our country, namely, Capital and Labor. Both of these powerful organizations are struggling f o r the upper hand so that they may oppress the other. Hatred and strife exist, and foul methods are being used by each in an effort to get the other by the throat, v Does this action suggest spiritual growth? Then let us look at the Ku Klux Klan which is a g r e a t power in our country today. This Hooded Invisible Empire preaches race hatred and seeks to antagonize the people by demanding the supremacy of one race at the expense of the others. Then take for example the spirit of lawlessness that prevails throughout our country. The great crime waves that sweep the nation and are like the waves of the sea for multitude. Even in our high offices of distinction and honor there is base corruption. The oil scandal has revealed that our most respected statesmen sometimes forsake the welfare of their country for personal advantage. Do these evidences of the character of America show any spiritual growth? In fact they reveal the decline of spirituality. How can we have spirituality when our government and people are corrupt. Even our professors and scholars of our great universities are seeking personal welfare rather than the welfare of the race. Even in the rural districts only one-fifth of the people attend church, and the attendance in the cities is much loweri Sabbath desecration is a common sin everywhere. The moral and social' life of our nation has gone from bad to worse. Therefore, because of these f a c t s concerning conditions in our country it is evident that America is not growing spiritually.

Annexing the second game of the series from Schouten's warriors by a 33-20 score, the Holland Furnace five can justly lay claim to the city championship. Both teams and their managers realized that the two point victory previously taken in by the Warm Friends was no margin with which to determine the champion, so another game was booked. The Orange and Blue was decisively beaten in this game, consequently f o r the first time in many years an independent team can flaunt the city title at Hope. In f o r m e r years when there was a Holland " Y " team, the Orange and Blue had a habit of coming out on top, but this time the independent team is of a much higher calibre than tho usual run of such quintets, and as a consequence, Hope came out "on the short end of the horn," f o r this season's title. * The Furnace team played brilliant basketball during all the tilt, but Hope did its best work in the "first half. "Ben" Riemersma had a wonderful eye in the first f r a m e and r u n g up five baskets, b a t the best he could do in the next half was one field goal. On the other hand Hinga scored fifteen points in the last half. The guarding of Schouten's warriors was f a r below par, and the Furnace makers had no difficulty in taking advantage of this fact, scoring easy shots that ordinarily they would have had no chance to a t tempt. The half ended sixteen to nine with Hope in the van, but a rally soon a f t e r the second half started gave the Warm Friends a lead that Hope was unable to overcome, t r y as they might. For the furnace team Hinga was the outstanding star, scoring 21 of the 33 points. Then Heasley and Japinga also gave a good account of themselves. Riemersma starred in the first half, while Ottipoby and Irving shared honors during the remainder of the battle. Van Lente was a bear on the defense throughout the game, exhibiting t h a t style of play which has made him so valuable to " J a c k " and the team this year. In a prelim the Reserves were beaten by the Jamestown " Y " 30 to 27. The Reserves led a t half-time but lost out in the closing minutes of the melee. Doeksen and C. Lubbers starred for the scrubs, while Smallegan was the individual who contributed most to the Reserves' defeat. Line-up and s u m m a r y ; Hope Holland Furnace. Irving R. F...„ F.

SOROSIS The Sorosites became very animated last Friday night as they met to discuss the coming presidential campaign. After the usual business had been disposed of and chaplain services had been rendered by Anna Meengs, Marian Van Vessum read a paper on "How the President Is Elected." It was written in the unique style that only Marian is capable of and not a minute detail of the process was omitted. Myrtle Hundley gave the "Presidential Possibilities for 1924." There were twelve Democratic and twelve Republican ones. Very ably she told the arguments pro and con of each man. Our minds were relieved from heavy matters for a few minutes while Mary Pieters, garbed in the attire of a well known member of our faculty, naively led the singing of clever, original campaign songs. The third of a series of talks on Parliamentary Law was given by Ethel Luidens. Then the society was held spellbound as they listened to Carol Van Hartesveldt's story, "The Curse of India." J u s t as one's bobbed hair was beginning to stand on end she added, "To be continued in our next."

* Dorian The Dorian Society met last Friday and enjoyed the following program:. Piano Solo, Eunice Brockmeir; Ramsey MacDonald (a paper), Shirley Hartman; violin solo, Hester Ossewaarde; Interesting Facts in Science, Josephine Ver Hage; "Wilson, a Man of the Ages." Harriet Vander Bush, and piano duet, Ruth Harder, Margaret De Weerd.

"The Hope Girls' Masketball Teain" - t h e r e ' s a title for you. You hadn't heard? Well, if you hadn't you must have been d r e a m i n g 'way back in the ('ays when hoop-skirts and wigs were the fashion. J u s t now there's a stir among the co-eds—all about this g a m e of "caging the whirling sphere"—as the sport editor would say. We're always following the men in something, don't you know? The Holland Furnace team was the first to fall before the Hope Sextette, 17 to 15. " D e a r Old Holland H i g h > came next as a victim, t a k i n g the small end of a 10 to S score. A Zeeland game will be scheduled f o r an early date. Then, instead of two or three rooters on the side-lines t h e r e ought to be two or three hundred, evening. Many of his Holland friends probably " P u d d , " who referees. Honored, isn't h e ? ..Now for the personnel, i. e.—the line-up. There's Psyche, and A n n e W. a n d . H a r r i e t V. d. M. and*Nell W. as forwards; Marie De -C., H a r r i e t H., and Bertha V. E. as g u a r d s ; Alice A. and Lillian B. a's running centers; and Isabel G. and Helen V. E. to touch ofV the ball each time as j u m p i n g centers. Their names a r e n ' t yet as f a m o u s as "Chief" and " B e a n s " and " F r i t z " and "George," but who c a r e s ? They're always " g a m e " a t every game, going for every goal, f u n n y enough for any fan—so come out, ye co-eds.! and all ye co-eds alone!

The Inter-clas* Basketball Tournament is about to close. F r o m the looks of things it would seem as though the Freshman class is going to c a p t u r e the championship. With but one g a m e left, the Freshmen are tied with the Juniors for the first plact*. The l ist time tho oflicial averages were given out the Freshmen were leading with .750; next came the Sophs and J u n i o r s with .500 apiece. The Seniors trailed with an average of .250. Since then, however, the J u n i o r s gave the Fo'ihs a narrow defeat by a 12-11 score. Next Monday tho deciding g a m e will be played between the Frosh and JIN nors, and should either the J u n i o r s or Freshmen win, it will mean the championship for t h a t team. The J u n i o r s h ive won it for two consecutive years and the " F r o s h " feel it is thejr duty lo stop them.

ica? Today there is a g r e a t interest • • manifested in the Divinity of Christ. Men everywheie are searching the scriptures and reading religious books in order to find the t r u t h as it is in Jesus. There are more Bibles and religious books sold today than ever before. Let us look a t the interest t h a t the church shares in the social betterment of the country. It was the influence of the church t h a t made the 18th amendment a law and t h a t is doing the most to enforce it. The church leads in most of the g r e a t reforms of the nation. The movement to bring the Bible back in the public schools is supported by the church and has the spiritual growth behind it as an incentive. The increased interest in immense Christian gatherings that are taking place throughout the country r. an evidence of spiritual growth. Oreat auditoriums are crowded by masses of students who have dedicated their lives to the cause of Christ. Theref o i e in the face of these f a c t s it is clea.* that America is growing spirit-
