Chemistry Dept. Receives Grant

The Chemistry Department of Hope College has received a g r a n t of $5000 from the Petroleum Research Fund, as administered by the American Chemical Society. The money will be used f o r summer scholarships to men who are working with Dr. Van Zyl in his summer research program. Dr. Van Zyl usually has two graduate students returning from universities, two seniors and two juniors f r o m the college working with him during the summer. The project, supported by the g r a n t f r o m the Petroleum Research Fund, which the group will be working on under Dr. Van Zyl's direction is The Chemistry of Thianaphthene. As head of the chemistry department a t Hope College since 1923, Van Zyl has been largely responsible f o r preparing students f o r graduate work in chemistry.

Henri Peyre To Speak On France in Crisis Hope College is very f o r t u n a t e to have Mr. Peyre as a lecturer, for he is a noted authority on European literature, he has written fourteen books and hundreds of magazine articles, and he has been described in a

Peyre received his early education in France. He has taught in Eng-

Carl -Ver Beek acted as the master of ceremonies for the program. The Co-Eds sang "If I Loved You" and "June Is Bustin' Out All Over." Paul Buit, dressed as "Billie" in the production "Carousel," gave a brief summary of the movie in a humorous fashion. The cup f o r the sorority making the most money was presented to Sybilline who sponsored "The Clam Bake" and offered turtles for the prizes. The f r a t e r n i t y making the most money was Knickerbocker who sponsored "The Jail." Among the group who fell as victims to this t r a p were President and Mrs. Irwin J. Lubbers.

Tuesday night the Symphonette played at Morrison, III. Wednesday at Wellsburg, Iowa, and last night at Holland, Nebraska. Today the group is in Prairie View, Kansas and tomorrow they will go to Denver, Colorado, where they will enjoy a day off. On Sunday the symphonette will play in Denver and on Monday will move to Rapid City, South Dakota. The rest of the tour will take them to Corsica and Chancellor, South Dakota, Edgerton, Minnesota, and Waterloo, Iowa, and f r o m there back to Holland.

Letters to the Editor

Member Associate Collegiate Press



Dear Editor: J u s t a question in regard to your ad in the Anchor. Should we advertise f o r Mary Baker Eddy? We all agree t h a t the Monitor is a pretty good paper as news goes, but many people could get the idea that we are promoting Christian Science as a religion. We also agree that as a religion their belief is in contradiction with Calvinism—you know the cult better han I. Don't think I'm "crabbing" but just wondering is this a good policy. We are glad to have a school such as Hope College. May God continue to bless it. Yours truly, Martin Nyhuis Sheboygan, Wis.

From the Editors Desk With spring vacation so very close at hand, it is, I suppose, most difficult to think of anything else. Difficult as it may be, we ought to face the "unpleasant" fact t h a t in only a few short days we shall be back on campus and shall be involved in one of the year's most important activities — campus elections. It really is unnecessary to call your attention to the coming elections. You will know they are upon us when the campus children begin to strew papers of various sizes, shapes, and hues about the still drab campus. There are, however, several weak spots in our campus electoral process t h a t shoulb be discussed. For the most part, our election problems center around the fact that the f r a t e r n i t i e s and sororities play such an outrageously large role in campus elections. One does not have to be the Wizard of Oz to perceive the unfortunate results of this predominance of societies. Not only are many well qualified "independents" and "inactives" prevented from seeking office but many well qualified members are necessarily kept from running as each society nominates only one candidate for each office. Also, under the present system none of the women on campus can seek the office of Student Council President. The worse result, however, is t h a t elections become one more area of society rivalry. Societies are tempted to nominate their most popular r a t h e r than their most qualified members. Students are tempted to vote straight f r a t e r n i t y or straight sorority "tickets." The campaign and election soon "boil down" to nothing but a popularity contest. It does not take much imagination to think of remedies and revisions t h a t would make our campus elections more democratic and more realistic. It may require some effort to bring those changes about. That is your job! Until that happens, though, students should t r y "as much as it is within them" to lay aside society loyalties and personal feelings, and to consider not only campaign issues and promises, but also such things as the academic achievement, social maturity, and moral development of the candidates. Only in this way will Hope College be assured good government. —J.F.

(Cont. from page 1) students; and the other a children's concert with narration intended specifically f o r children from third to sixth grade ages. The Symphonette was organized by Dr. Rider in 1953 and has been widely recognized in the instrumental field. During the past two seasons it has presented a series of programs on WKAR-TV. Last spring they went to five Eastern States. The personnel manager asked the youthful ex-lieutenant what business experience he had. "None," was the reply. "I just got out of college when the war started." "Well, what kind of a job do you think you could handle.?" "Oh," breezed the applicant, "something executive. A vice-presidency, maybe." The manager looked thoughtful. "I guess t h a t lets us out," he answered. "You see, we have 12 vicepresidents already." The ex-louie waved a hand nonchalantly. "Oh, that's all right," he said, "I'm not superstitious." (The Reader's Digest)

Choir . . . (Cont. from page 1) The Chapel Choir has been ma'king spring tours since 1953 when it participated in the Easter Dawn Service at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Since then it has made two additional Eastern tours, traveled to California and the Southwest in 1955, and toured four states of the Middle West last spring. Mrs. Delia Steininger, House Director of Durfee Hall, will be accompanying the choir as chaperone. The late Leonard Liebling, editor of Musical Courier, always remembered the day during his youth when a visitor arrived just as the family was about to sit down to dinner. Mr. Liebling, Sr., annoyed that anyone should choose the dinner hour as visiting time, had t h e maid ask the guest to wait. A f t e r an unhurried dinner, Mr. Liebling greeted his friend, "Sorry to keep you waiting, b u t we always eat at seven." "That's what I thought," replied the friend, "when you asked me to come to dinner tonight." (The Reader's Digest)


Ed. note: The Anchor thanks Mr. Nyhius f o r his interest and comments. Mr. Nyhius brings up a good pint—one that was considered by the Anchor before the advertising mentioned was accepted. The Anchor has discovered, however, t h a t the Christian Science Monitor actually devotes very little space to religious discussion and is almost universally acclaimed f o r its excellent news coverage and editorials. It is classified as recommended reading by several Hope College Professors and is carried by the Hope College Library. Its advertising, particularly t h a t offering reduced rates to students, is as welcome in the Anchor, therefore, as that of the many secular concerns we accept. The Anchor also believes t h a t any faith or religion adhered to by a student of Hope College is not worthy of such devotion, if it cannot stand occasional exposure to and comparison with other religions. Dear Editor: It is indeed very difficult for one to write articles or make speeches t h a t have to do with cultural comparison. This is due to the fact that painstaking and cautious research and factual information are necessary to support one's statements. Otherwise, instead of fostering good-will and understanding among countries, reverse consequences would result if distorted views are presented. In the International Night, which was sponsored by the Alcor, we were fortunate enough to hear Mr. Kang's "exceptional" speech on "The Evolution of Languages." Without the least shadow o f ' a doubt, everyone that was present would certainly agree t h a t Mr. Kang is an extraordinarily good speaker. But it seemed to us that he talked about the "independence" of Korean language and culture rather than the evolution of that language. We were led astray by the title of his speech and wondered about his intention. Could he mean t h a t the Korean language, being "independent" will be the ultimate offspring of the linguistic evolution? The invention of twenty-six alphabet in Korea in 1392 A.D. to simplify and replace the Chinese ideograms does not mean t h a t she could produce culture f r e e from the influence of China. S. McCune, in his book "Korea's Herit a g e " published in 1956, says, "The Korean language is heavily loaded with borrowings, both in words and structure, f r o m the tongues of their conquering neighbors, the Chinese and the Japanese." Actually, "Korean language bears the same relationship to Chinese as English does to Latin." This statement is said by H. B. Hulbert, another famous historian. From the historical f a c t s , we can see that in the Chou dynasty of China (1122 B.C.), Chi Tzu, and of-

Spice and Crumbs by Richard Jaarsma A strartling new theory as to the future development of man created something of a f u r o r in scientific circles a short while ago. The cause of it all: a slight, balding man, with an uncontrollable tic in his left cheek (which som people, probably jealous, consider a mark of insanity) and a Richard Jaarsma . nervous and slightly mincing walk. The name of this anemic (I won't keep my readers in suspense any longer) is Dr. Jost Aalep. This is his theory: If the evolutionary pattern continues as it has (pretty slim chance, you will say, and I will say too) two types of people will develop: Homo Normalis and Homo Collegentsia. (The terms are the professor's, not mine). Homo Normalis, according to Dr. Aalep, (and who am I to doubt his word?) will look much like modern man, except for a natural skin pouch on the hip in which to keep his tools. This type of person will be employed in the various factories and on the farms, and will not want much in the way of pleasure. Any other type which now flourishes (such as Homo Nightclubitis) will have long disappeared. The great difference, however, lies in the new kind of man. Homo Collegentsia. This f u t u r e man will be divided into three subspecies

ficer who was dissatisfied with the governmental system of that period, led 800 people and settled in Korea. He then became the King of Korea. A f t e r t h a t though there were occasional conflicts, Korea still remained as a tributary state of China. It was not until the Tang dynasty (660 A.D.) that Korea was entirely tamed by China. In 1592 A.D., Hideyoshi, the Japanese usurper, led 30,000 of his troops to invade Korea. Through the help of the Chinese army, the Japanese were driven out of the Korean peninsula. In 1627 A.D., Korea tried to rebel against China but was subdued by the Chinese troops of the Ching dynasty. We wish to mention also t h a t the custom of the Korean people of wearing white clothes is also a traditional by-product carried from China in approximately 1500 B.C. It was only one of the prevailing customs in the "neolithic" Shang dynasty of China. The sinologists of J a p a n openly recognize the tremendous influence of Chinese culture on their own country, especially their language. The spirit of Japan, worthy of admiration, is adopting t h a t which is good from other countries. This is just a process of cultural evolution. For example, the Hellenic culture was influenced by the Minoans; the Romans by t h a t of the Greeks. America, the strongest nation in the world, was a colony of England before 1776; still she does not deny the rooted influence of Engand, though she has an improved culture of her own. Germany, before 1870, was still disunited and was under the domination of Austria. She was called the "weak-center" of Europe. A f t e r the Franco-Prussian W a r (1870-1871), she sprang up to be one of the strongest nations in the world. She does not deny t h a t she was once called the "barbaric race." We hope that through discussions and meaningful comprehension of factual knowledge, we may reach a stage of better mutual understanding and respect. —Hubert Yu —James Tan

corresponding roughly to the following: 1. Homo Athletica—This will be the most colorful of the three, having no head, (and probably needing none) but instead what is lc*rt of the brain will have atrophied into a short stalk. The eyes, however, will be enormous, and will in in all probability be situated at the base of the neck. The arms and legs will be tremendously elongated and will have huge, bulging muscles. The chest, thinks professor Aalep, will look much like a very large, oval balloon, and the skin will have grown in such a way as to form a pretty red number on a white background. Homo Athletica's sole function in the world of the f u t u r e will be to provide amusement f o r : 2. Homo Conformita. This is the most closely related to students as we know them. The physical aspects of this type will be approximately the same as t h a t of people today, except for a singular lack of expression when studying. An interesting note is added by Dr. Aalep when he states that, "The clothing of this subspecies will be monotonously alike, consisting of crew neck sweaters and pants or skirts, all a revolting dusty gray." Maybe the good Doctor has something there. Who knows? The great interests of this genus will be new cars and parties. In fact, it is estimated by reputable scientists (other than Dr. Aalep) that in the near f u t u r e g r e a t companies will arise merely to provide a sort of glorified catering service f o r the average student. It will bear watching. 3. The crowning glory of f u t u r e man, however, will be Homo Superior. h e will have a large, globular head, nine-tenths of which will consist of brain matter. His eyes will be astigmatic and he will have a tendency toward near-sightedness, caused by much concentrated reading and study. The rest of his body will be small and fragile, and he will move from one place to another in a kind of wheel-chair. His primary function will be to rule, to control business, and to teach Homo Collegentsia Conformita. This type might almost be called Creative Man, in t h a t his chief pursuit, when not ruling or conducting business, will be to write and paint. According to Professor Aalep, man's cultural achievements will rise to new heights during a period which he calls "The Golden Age of Man" or "The Neo-Renaissance." Dr. Aalep has been widely critisiced because of this theory by f a r m laborers, factory hands, college students and highbrows. Not too much will come of this, however, since it will take at least another hundred thousand years to check Dr. Aalep's figures. For the present, we must be content to guillotine or deport the unfortunate Professor. Even then, we may not be satisfied.

The Joke Box Little Billy's pet turtle was the light of his life. Day a f t e r day he and Tubby would romp and play happily witn each other. Then one day Billy found Tubby lying on his back motionless and still; the boy was hysterical with grief. "Now Billy," said his f a t h e r , "don't feel too bad. We'll have a party. You can invite all your friends and play games, and Mother will serve you ice cream and cake." Billy sniffed and dried his tears, but jus t then he looked a t Tubby. "Daddy, look!" he cried. The little turtle moved its legs feebly and finally managed to right itself. Billy watched him a few seconds, then he looked up a t his father. "Daddy," he said, "let's kill him."

The E a s t e r season b r i n g s thoughts of the death, burial, and ascension of our Lord. We are familiar with the story and it strikes both sorrowful and joyful notes upon our hearts, f o r we know that Christ died a painful death for our sins, but t h a t He also rose in victory over those sins and that f r o m His place in glory He is willing to forgive and cleanse all who come to Him by faith. But I believe we often miss the most blessed and most personal implications of this story. When we consider these truths, does it not raise a question in our minds as to how they can be made personal, effectual, and applicable to our lives, right here, today? Can we speak in such glowing terms about things that happened two thousand years ago and not realize why they are so important to us, not only f o r salvation but for our everyday Christian lives? The t r u t h t h a t we miss is that the very experience of Christ is, in reality, to be made the experience of every Christian. His death is our death, His victory our victory, His power our power. This is the way to newness of life f o r a Christian; it is what makes Christianity not an imitation of some high standards, but a com-

plete getting rid of the old and a participation in new life and transforming power. When we became Christians, we became, by spiritual union with Christ, partakers of His accomplishments. This means that when He died on the cross, we died with Him; when He descended into the grave, our old lives of sin went with Him, never to rise again; and when He rose transformed by God and victorious over sin, we rose with Him possessing a new nature —His nature. Sin no longer has the grip on our lives, or we have defeated it in Christ. Romans 6:14 tells us, "For sin shall not have dominion over you, f o r ye are not under the law but under grace." Why then, do we continue to have sin in our lives? If Christ has won the victory over sin and we are joined with Him, how can it be t h a t we still yield to sin and are not the transformed people we ought to be? The answer is that these things do not happen automatically; they must be reckoned upon by faith. Romans 6:11 says, "Reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord." "Reckon" implies t h a t we consider these truths, with all our hearts, to be absolutely true of



ff :l

our lives. We must acknowledge that Christ's death is our death and His victory is our victory. Then we must come before God in prayer and ask Him to make it real in our lives realizing that it is only His Holy Spirit t h a t can do the work. And finally, we must act as if it were so. Prayers of faith t h a t are not followed by action are not prayers of faith at all. Wnen we have claimed a victorious life from God, He is not going to live it f o r us; we must go out and live it by faith. The man with the withered hand was healed when he obeyed Christ's command to stretch it forth. (Matthew 12:18).

Busy Sorority Week Includes Meetings, Informal Frats Hold Last Meetings Before Spring Recess

Alpha-phi The meeting of March 21 featured devotions led by Joan Roos, followed by a humorous, musical interpretation of "The Adventures of Ulysses".

Candidates for Vice-President

Carol Cook

Time flies quickly and it is time for the Student Council elections again. As citizens of the College community it is all-important that we make use of the democratic privilege of voting. With this privilege, however, comes a responsibility—that of voting for the best person for the position, not because he is a friend, or a f r a t e r n i t y brother, but because he is the most qualified. According to the Student Council Constitution the duties and privileges of the president and vicepresident are as follows: "The president shall: preside at all regular and special meetings of the council; have the authority to call special meetings at his discretion; represent the council to the student body, faculty, and administration when necessary; appoint, jointly with the vice-president and with the advice and consent of the council, the student members to all Faculty-Student and Student-Faculty committees; appoint all student council standing and special committees; and be responsible for the execution of all policies and programs of the student council. The vice-president shall: assume the duties of the president during the absence of the president; succeed to the presidency in the event of the death, resignation, removal from office, or termination of studies of the president; be responsible for initiating action on all council programs and policies." As you can readily see both are responsible positions that require a lot of interest and hard work. As an aid in helping you to become acquainted with the candidates, a brief rundown of each follows.
