Sister College In Hungary To Receive Hope's Help Undoubtedly all students on campus will be interested to know that this year the student body will again send funds and clothing to Sarospatak College in Hungary. Throughout the year Hope students and faculty have received letters from this European college expressing sincere appreciation for the gifts which were sent to them. Above all, they emphasized the renewed hope which they received when they realized that a college in the United States was anxious to make contacts with them. Hope has maintained a particular interest in Sarospatak f o r several reasons. First of all, the RetormeJ faith traditions and practices of this old European college are almost identical with those of IIop3. Secondly, students and faculty feel the need of developing contacts with c o l l e g e s in other countries. Above all, Hopeites recognize the material aid which can n some way be given to Sarospatak in ord3r that it may continue its educational policies. It will not succumb to Communistic pressure; consequently, it has a constant struggle to maintain its principles.

A comparison which shows how two things are similar puts both things in a different light. With that idea in mind, the following article was taken from the College News of the Sarospatak English College to give a few facts about the type and size of the Academy. Sarospatak Academy is an old Foundation School. It was founded in 1531 by Peter Perenyi, the owner of Sarospatak Castle at that time and one of those men who helped to bring about the Reformation in Hungary. Ever since then, it has been a denominational school, one of the strongholds of the Reformed Church in Hungary.

It always makes a choir feel good when members of the student body can bring in a compliment or two. A f t e r all, a g r o u p cannot know how it is doing unless it is told.

I am sure t h a t anyone hearing Rudolph Ganz two weeks ago will agree that his appearance added to our knowledge of music, and also that his personality contradicted the old s t a t e m e n t that all musicians are h a u g h t y and temperamental.. For those who heard him in the afternoon, Rudolph Ganz proved himself a man of great brilliance, of feeling, and one possessing a v e r y g r e a t s e n s e of humor. In working with publicity for the Men's Glee Club, we've had quite a time finding a picture of the professor which we could use for our posters and programs. Not that there is no picture. For in looking them up, we found many. And yet, we have to be careful so that all the young ladies from the East will know t h a t he is.not only Mr. Cavanaugh, but also that he is Mrs. C a v a n a u g h ' s husband. We're really looking forward to a big send-off by Mrs. Snow. If any of the rest of you are around, join in the fun. If you want to give any of the boys a going-away present, we offer a few suggestions. What with only one suitcase a person, and 13 singing engagements, and everyone s w e a t i n g a gallon each concert, we might suggest some Deodorant, or maybe a couple j a r s of Mum. Or if any of you wish you might pack a lunch, because someone is bound to get hungry. Oh yes, up until now, we haven't revealed the fact, but Mr. Hinga is g o i n g w i t h u s , a l s o . For some reason he isn't quite as enthusiastic about this trip as he was the last one. If we only knew why, we could probably do something about it. If anyone has any sleeping tablets to give him before we leave, please do so; for he likes to share his insomnia with e v e r y o n e on the bus, according to last years reports. Well, it's time to close, but we have just one t h i n g to say.

Spring Football Call Issued t o New Men Coach Vanderbush is holding a short two-weeks spring football practice this year. Practice started March 24 and will continue through all of next week. During the two weeks Coach plans to work entirely with men who were not on last year's varsity. He is looking for the necessary replacements to fill the shoes of those lost through graduation and t r a n s f e r . There will be no scrimmaging since the men reporting will not be in the proper condition. Letter winners of previous seasons may come out in case they were not back in time for last season's play. Last year's men are requested to stay away so Coach Vanderbush can give all his time to new prospects.

Hope Cops Fifth In Track Summary MI A A Track Meet Two mile run—won by Nesbitt,


Congratulations to Russ De Vette on his selection as the M.I.A.A.'s most valuable p l a y e r . ^ H e w a s " unanimously selected at a recent coaches meeting. He will receive the Randall C. Bosch trophy. This is the first time that this trophy has been given to a basketball player The M.l.A.A. coaches have decidtd to change slightly the system for deciding the conference winners in tennis and golf. Instead of having everything decided by the two-day conference meet in Kalamazoo, the teams will get some credit for the matches they play during the year. In both tennis and golf each team will play every other team at least once in a dual meet, if they play more than once only one meet will be official. The teams will get 1 point for each win during the season. The all-conference meet in May will be graded as usual: 12 points for first, 10 for second, etc. The few points earned during the season plus the conference match points will determine the final league standings. Points toward the AII-M.I.A.A. trophy will naturally be given according to these final standings. (Again 12 points, 10 points). Track, however, will still be entirely dependent on the final meet. Speaking of track, it still seems to be the big question mark in Hope's quest for an athletic trophy. Right now Hope has 20 points, Kalamazoo has 1!>, and Albion lias 15. The other three schools are pretty well out of it. In tennis it looks like all Kalamazoo. As Hinga put it, "They're just out of this world." '1 hey drum up talent from all over the country. They play a schedule as tough as any big university They're going on an extensive tour of the South this spring. Albion has practically the same team this year as took third behind Kazoo and Hope last year. In golf Alma has last year's conference winning team back. Hope has plenty of good material around. Last yea:'s trouble was that men who often shot in the low TO's soared to the high 80's in conference play. The important thing here is to beat out Kazoo and Albion. But back to track. Albion walked off with the indoor meet. Alma and Hillsdale showed great strength. Albion had her men in several meats before the M.l.A.A. indoor. She sent a team to the Illinois Tech relays in Chicago. Hope's team has done almost no training to date. Half the men didn't even go to the Lansing meet. There's no reason why Hope can't get some more runners out and place high in the big May meet. 1 can't see much hope for that trophy if we place lower than say third in track. Well fraternity basketball is about over. I thin': all the players are to be commended for their excellent sportsmanship. Many of the close and overtime games might have gone the other way had there been a stop watch to keep accurate time. I'd like to know where the college keeps its watches. I'll swipe a few for next year. Also a hearty BOO to two or three sideline jockeys who continually made things tough for Higgs. They've decided not to bowl the Friday before vacation. Tomorrow's round will be the last for three weeks. Max (loersma rates a lot of thanks for the work he's doing on bowling standings and averages.

Hope's track team, with almost no training behind them, travelec to Lansing and placed fifth in the M.l.A.A. Indoor Track Meet. Albion, last year's champions, showed great s t r e n g t h a s t h e y easily walked off with first. Albion ran up 7 2 ^ points in w.nning the first indoor meet since 1943. Hillsdale was second with 40Vi points. Alma third with 35 points, Adrian fourth with 22% points, Hope fifth with 1 7 ^ points, and Kalamazoo sixth with 7 points. New meet records were set in the high jump and the high hurdles. Teixera of Alma cleared 6 feet, 3V4 inches to break the former high jump mark of 5 feet, 11 inches set in 1938 by Howard of Kalamazoo. Miller of Albion broke the 75-yard high hurdle record by running it in 9.9 seconds. The old record was 10.1 seconds held by McKittrick of Albion since 1942. Young of Hillsdale took individual scoring honors. He took first n the 75-yard dash, second in the 220-yard dash, and third in the broad jump for a total of 12 points. Xesbitt of Alma was second iniividually and was the only man to win two events. He won 10 point? with firsts in the one and twr mile. Albion took five firsts including t h e 8 8 0 - y a r d relay. Almr won four and were part of a three way tie for the pole vault. Kalamazoo, who had very few men there, was the only team that did not place a first.

Baseball Team Meets J. C . A p r i l 10 To Open Season; Roster Carries 35 Players A sixteen game s c h e d u l e has been drawn up by Coach ".lack" Schouten f o r t h e H o p e College baseball team. A large squad of hopefuls have been hard at work for two weeks in preparation for the long grind. About fifty men reported at the irst practice, but that number has been reduced to thirty-five. Competition is keen for each position, ind the result is that no player is uire of a starting berth. With the great competition a n d t h e large number of candidates from which to pick, prospects for a successful season are bright. Five regular pitchers are nowincluded on the roster with four )ther possible pitchers who are also slated for other positions. There are also five candidates for the catching job. so t h a t p o s i t i o n should be capably filled. Around the infield, the first base slot is going to be a knock down, drag out struggle with six men vieing for the position. Second base has four

candidates, s h o r t s t o p

t w o , and

three men will battle for the " h o t " corner. To complete the team, nine men have set their hopes on the outfield. A general survey of the outfield shows promise of some heavy hitters. The opening game of the season will be played at Riverview Park on April 10 against (Irand Rapids J r . Last year the Dutchmen defeated the raiders 5-3 here at home and played to a 2-2 deadlock in Grand Rapids. The schedule is as follows: April
