Sole Concert in Michigan Features Organ Effects


Personality is requfred

Cook to Represent Hope in State Peace Contest Allen Cook of Coopersville, Michigan, who was awarded first place in the local peace contest last Wednesday for his oration, "Meet Your Enemy," will represent Hope at the state meet to be held April 17 at Calvin. Mildred Kirkwood's speech entitled "Torch Bearers of Peace," took second place, with third honor going to Lois Voorhorst, freshman, for her oration, "Disarming the Mind." Other contestants were John Van Wyk, Harold Leetsma, and Lester Wassenaar. Dr. J. B. Nykerk will coach Allen in preparation for the state contest, where he will vie for honors against Albion, Alma, Adrian, Bay City, Jr., Calvin, and the University of Detroit. Judges for the contest at Hope last Wednesday were Dr. Nykerk, Vernon Ten Cate, and Cornelius Vander Meulen, local banker.

Speech Contest HOPE ALUMNUS Raven Rules Are Announced LEADS EASTER John Van Wyk, president of Pi SERVICE HERE Kappa Delta, has announced that Rev. Harry Hoffs Pays Beautiful Tribute to Mr. Snow

the A. A. Raven oratorical contest for men will be held the last week in May. This contest is held annually, two prizes being offered. The winner merits thirty dollars and the opportunity to represent Hope in the Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League contests next year; while his runner-up wins twenty dollars and is considered alternate for the chosen representative. Subjects r a n g e from politics to religion. Time-worn subjects dressed up with different attitudes produce just as good results as do ideas which are entirely new. The women's contest is held simultaneously. The prize is a twentyfive dollar check and the winner automatically becomes next year's representative in the women's division of the M.I.S.L. contests. This year's coaches will probably continue next year as faculty advisors.

Organ effects which have made the St. Olaf Lutheran choir worldfamous, will be featured at the concert presented at 8:15 tomorrow night in the Hope Memorial chapel. Critics have named this choir foremost in America and among the best two or three in the world. "Letter-perfect, pitch-perfect, toneperfect and text-perfect in the most difficult classic choral music," is one of the many tributes found among the press notices. Christiansen Directs This illustrious organization is under the guidance and direction of the composer of "Beautiful Savior," Dr. F. Melius Christiansen, b o m and raised in Norway, b u t who came to America when he was 17. Later in 1903, a f t e r studying in Europe, he was appointed musical director at St. Olaf college, a Norwegian Lutheran institution in Northfield, Minnesota, where he proceeded to build up a choir of the fair, blue-eyed grandsons and granddaughters of the first settlers from the Scandinavian peninsula. His ideal choir is a "sensitized ensemble in balanced programs, submerging single voices a n d groups of voices." Dr. Christiansen himself says, "Soloists ruin choirs. Pure intonation and personality are what I require of my members. Sometimes I have to substitute a singer with less training f o r a beautiful voice because the l a t t e r cannot fit into our scheme of

ALUMNI NEWS A few days before spring vacation, Hope college received word of the deaths of t w 0 prominent alumni. Johannes W. Visscher, 80, of the class of 1877, died in St. Luke's hospital, Chicago, a f t e r a brief illness. Mr. Visscher had spent his entire life in Holland and was very well known in the community. He was one of Hope's oldest graduates, and was the only living member of the class of 1877. The other two members of the class were the Rev. L. Hekhuis and the Rev. Matthew Kolyn, D.D. "Class Room Reminiscenses" of that class, written by Mr. Visscher for the Alumni number of the MILESTONE in 1930, recalls those old college days when the three were college students. Several of the children of Mr. Visscher have also graduated from Hope college and have become prominent in their work. »


Henry Vander Ploeg, GG, of the class of 1893, died of heart trouble in his home in Chicago. "Little" Henry Vander Ploeg, as he was called, was well known in Holland, having lived here for many years. He formerly conducted the book store on E. 8th St., now known as Brink's book store. He was very well known and loved among the alumni and was active in the Chicago chapter of the organization.

Who is your choice for "Miss Democracy?" W h y ? DOROTHY PARKER—Because she gets a big kick out of living— because you can discuss almost anything with her, f r o m fiddle-de-dee to Hitler—because her chiefest prejudice is against meanness—because she does quite nicely, thank you, without the aid of Lady Esther or Elizabeth Arden—because she is a gentleman, in the feminine sense. WILMA DE YOUNG—Looks like J e a n Harlow, which speaks f o r itself. She has a sweet and likeable personality, is a good sport, is capable of being serious as well as silly, is well liked—a wee bit dumb, but just pleasingly so. My choice is Wilma De Young. Physical beauty together with charming and influential personality and a natural friendliness toward everyone, make her unsurpassed by any of her fellow coeds. Wilma De Young would be my choice. She is active on the campus, intelligent, capable of work, personable and not entirely lacking in physical appeal. I feel that were she chosen, she would remain unaffected as ever. MARJORIE MOODY—She's Greta Garbo's glorious glamour, baking soda's arm and hammer, an amateur's Major Bowes, Bill Powell's evening clothes. She's the Ellington blues, a Bermuda cruise, a Fred Allen wheeze. She's a Joe Louis bet, the national debt, a Jim Londos squeeze. She's a Winchell prediction, that McNamee diction, Sylvia Sidney's beauty—she's Marjorie Moody. My vote goes for Marjorie Moody, a "Miss Democracy" with a pleasant smile and a cheery manner. We can truly say she is "a friendly heart with many a friend." MARY J A N E VAUPELL—She is not snobbish nor is she selfish. She cooperates with her classmates and is liked by all. Although a bit

The first morning a f t e r the spring recess, the mixed chorus from Northwestern junior college. Orange City, Iowa, sang throe numbers. They were on their weary way home a f t e r more than two weeks of tripping. Miss Fern Smith, the directress said, "These singers are the chosen few from a choir of forty. They were chosen because of their dependability and punctuality as well as ability." All the students were able choristers, and the soloists have high ideals. The bass expects to go to St. Olaf college next y e a r and t r y out for the famous Christiansen choir which sings here tomorrow night. »

BETTY GOEHNER—I choose her because she has unconsciously proved in the past four years on the campus that she is popular, capable, vivacious, athletic and sweet; and thus burdened, she has kept her feet on the ground.

M a r q u e t t e U n i v e r s i t y is on the a p p r o v e d list of the Association of A m e r i c a n Universities and is an accredited m e m b e r of the N o r t h C e n t r a l Association of Colleges. Each college a n d school is a p p r o v e d by the national bodies organized to set u p e d u c a t i o n a l standards.

Betty Goehner, a l t h o j g h hindered by coming from a town with the name of Flushing, has, nevertheless, shown enough to be entitled to the name mentioned above. Reasons are many. One, she uses Colgate toothpaste for that personality smile; another is that she is always ready to do the things that have proven her in the past to be popular and well liked by everyone coming in contact with her. THELMA KOOIKER—She is rather quiet and unassuming, yet she is capable of being a most delightful conversationalist. Her attractiveness is plainly evident, but she is apparently unaware of her charms. A cheerful smile, a genial disposition, and the ability to understand and sympathize with another person's views are the three main attributes to her success. Following are the students whose opinions are writen aboveVic Notier, Paul Vander Hill, John Henderson, Ralph De Roo, Cal Vander Werf, Lee Mahan, John M.

SEVEN VETERANS Unless Boreas stops sending down his cold and rain-storming, Coach Kleinheksel and his netmen m a y find their barnstorming spring trip tripped up, or sprung, or frozen up, or washed out, or, at least, not so pleasant as anticipated. With a meet scheduled at Grand Rapids with J.C. Saturday and another next Saturday with the strong Kazoo outfit, which has been practicing for two months, the team has been playing a round robin tournament, in which each player meets every other one, to give the coach an indication of how they stack up. Veterans Heeringa a n d Leland and Sophomore Arendshorst appear as the most outstanding candidates. However, there are several other veterans, including L. Van Tatenhove, Hulse, Westveer, Visser, and Vanden Berge, as well as Sophomores Loveland, Holland high champion; Plakke, Bruggers, and Abell, who will be out battling for the seven positions.

the Cosmos staved off a determined F r a t e r n a l rally to take the championship of the Fraternity League, 22-19. And thereby hangs a tale. The champs cashed in on most of their opportunities during the first half and left the court with an almost insurmountable 18-5 lead. F r a t e r Coach Poppink raved and ranted, (well, anyway, he talked to them) during the intermission and the F r a t e r s came back in the second half with murder in their eyes (ask Buteyn). They whittled the score down to 22-19 but that's as f a r as they got. o

Each Candidate to Edit Anchor Issue Prior to Election

Nominations by the Anchor staff of the three, all juniors, f o r the editorship next year have received the official sanction of the faculty committee on publications. Beginning with the next edition, the three candidates wrl be responsib'e in turn for the editing of a single issue of the paper. The nominees met at the hub of campus news centers Friday, had their picl u r e s taken, and drew some numbers out of a hat.

The popular election, in which a majority of votes are required to win, will be conducted late in May or early in June in conjunction with the voting for the student council president.
