Dr. Zsiros, who is to be an associate professor in the Department of Greek, is a native of Hungary. He graduated from Sarospatak College and received his Th.D. at Debrecin University. Following his last year in seminary in Hungary he was sent to the University of Pennsylvania to prepare to take over the chair of New Testament in the Hungarian Seminary. However, upon his return to Hungary the chair of the Old Testament was unexpectedly vacated and he, therefore, without preliminary preparation, became a The annual children's play will professor of the Old Testament. be presented by Hope's Speech In 1948 Dr. Zsiros came to Hope Department on April 25th and as an exchange professor.

The paper Dr. Ellert has prepared is a resume of the successes and failures of elementary languages in grade schools as shown by experiences in the Grand Rapids, Grand Haven, and Holland schools. An authority on the subject of teaching foreign languages to the pre-high school age group. Dr. Ellert has written numerous articles and several books that reveal his deep interest in the program.

You Missed It Spring is here! A time to be outside rather than inside, a time to enjoy the sun and the fresh air, a time of elections and a time of renewed spirit. During these past election campaigns, we have heard much about school spirit and class unity. Even in our everyday conversation, questions have frequently arisen such as: "Where is our school spirit?" "What happened to our school u n i t y ? " and "What is wrong with our student body and organization?" Those who know all the answers to these questions need not read any farther. This article is directed to the other 80% of our student body who don't know the answers to these questions and have shown little or no interest to find out the answers. To those who have shown this minute, at times invisible, interest, let me ask the question. If Hope College is to have unity and spirit, why don't more students join in on our spring sports as active participants or as active spectators? For let me remind you again, Hope College is still in the thick of the fight for the MIAA All-SportsTrophy. Whether Hope wins or not is dependent upon the outcome of the spring sports. The football, cross-country, and basketball teams have already given their all. And the support rendered by the student body was at times terrific while at other times utterly disgraceful. Why, now that the spring sports are in full operation, leave the conquest of this trophy up to a small minority of students who love sports and its competitive aspects to win this honor for us and for Hope College. If we fail to win this honor, it is a fact that it won't be hard f o r any of us to criticize our teams for not winning, nor will it be hard to join in the celebration if they do win, even though the final celebration was never and should never be the purpose of sports. Is it more important to get a sun-tan than to be contributing to school unity and spirit? Is it more important to give your all on May Day for the honor and glory of it rather than to be unselfishly giving your best to all the students of Hope College in its quest for a greater honor. I know not everyone can engage in the activities themselves, but everyone can help make the activities a success by seeing that he is in the audience applauding the competitors. Let it never be said of you — You missed it. Let's join in school spirit! nmmm

And these two vague ideas — that literary horror consists largely of gothic novels and the writings of Edgar Allan Poe—are likely to be, in the mind of John Average, the only contents of the file marked horror. That is, if they are filled at all. Devotees of fantasy today pity Mr. Average exceedingly f o r his ignorance. Any one of them (in particular, myself) will, upon the slightest provocation, launch into rhapsodies on the lyrical style of Ray Bradbury, the fiendish machinations of Theodore Sturgeon, or Robert Sheckley's post-mortem humor.

For terror has come a long way since Foe's mechanically calculated fright. I am not habitually a worshipper of the Modern; but the progress in this field since Poe appears to me indisputable. The most obvious and important difference is this: Poe makes every detail of the emotion he wishes us to feel as explicit as possible, piling adjective on adjective and phrase on phrase to secure an "effect"; and finally the very cloying thoroughness of his description becomes enervating. The presentday author's technique, on the other hand, has progressed to the point at which the effect is made not by what is explicitly pointed out, but by what is left implicit.

For examples, allow me to refer the reader to A Walk in the Dark, by Arthur C. Clarke; a grisly little sketch by Theodore Sturgeon entitled The Music; and many others from Sturgeon's volume "E Pluribus Unicom" — The Professor's Teddy Bear, Bianca's Hands, Die, Maestro Die! All of these, with the single exception of The Professor's Teddy Bear, are straight psychological horror stories; Sturgeon reserves his more offbeat talents for something like the trilogy More Than Human. Bradbury is a world in himself. Originally a writer of short stories in the s-f vein, he has lately turned to fantasy and even an "orthodox" work. He is accepted in Europe— as Poe also was—without any condescension as one of the leading contemporary American authors. The Golden Apples of the Sun, an anthology of twenty-two short stories and vignettes, was the turning point from s-f to fantasy and straight work, and has a good selection of horror in each field.

Senior Philosophies

Marriage and Family Relations EDITOR'S NOTE: The articles appearing below represent, we hope, the first of a series, featuring the personal philosophies of our graduating Seniors on subjects such as marriage, religion, government, science, and education. Oddly enough, each of the articles that have thus f a r been submitted has been in response to our questionnaire on Marriage and Family Relations. If you would like to see the other topics discussed in print, keep your articles rolling in. By Carl Ver Beek When should I m a r r y ? Whom should I m a r r y ? About 90% of us are trying to answer either one or both of these questions, so this is a subject well worth considering. I can't claim to be an expert in this area, but I can give my opinions on this subject, since I have done a lot of thinking about it, as any engaged person has. Of course, my opinions may be biased because of my position, but I will try to be as objective as possible. Probably the easiest way to cover this would be to follow the outline provided by the staff and consider the sections in that order. The first factor mentioned is age. This is a relative thing which I feel we can best set a minimum and a maximum on, and let the other factors make the decision within the time span. Speaking for college students, I feel that the best chances for a happy marriage occur if the marriage takes place between the ages of 20 and 24. The determining factor, assuming the mate is a logical one, is that you are able to see a good possibility of some type of financial security without sacrificing everything else for a married "existence." Whether the woman or the man provides the money at first, is an individual question, but it is always better if the woman has a chance to continue her education or training until she has some special profession to fall back on. This leads us to the question of the relative educational levels of the partners. When possible, it seems to alleviate a problem if the male is at least as well educated as the woman or has some compensatory factor like a very good job. At least, their cultural tastes should be somewhere near the same. I may be old fashioned, but I feel that the woman should still subordinate her career and aspirations to the man's. Also they have an equal responsibility to make the marriage "go," and if one is continually being forced to give in, it can lead to feelings of disrespect on both sides. In regard to sex, I can only say that this is a very important factor and can't be treated as something to be worked out after marriage. The couple should have an understanding of what the sexual desires of the opposite sex consist of and should concentrate on fulfilling them, and in so doing it would probably follow that both will be very happy and satisfied. The purpose of marriage is to create a home, which when possible should include children. They should be a part of marriage as

soon as they can be provided for. It seems to me to be wrong to bring children into a home that can't afford them, but that it would be better to err in this direction than to wait until each and every desire can be supplied, because that time will never come. Personally, I feel t h a t it is a big mistake to m a r r y across the lines of Roman Catholicism and protestantism. As I am approaching marriage, it seems that there are going to be enough problems without creating one t h a t has no solution. Perhaps it is even wrong to marry when both are of the same faith but one is much more devout than the other. This is a question of individual judgement. The personal qualities of a mate are simply a matter of taste. Luckily we don't all want the same thing in a mate, or most of us would be out of luck. It often seems too, that maybe some of us don't really want what we think we want. The one necessary factor is that you can conceive of yourself looking at this person after thirty years and expect that you will love him or her. Love isn't just a sexual attraction, but is something that needs time to grow and is never completed. Love is a process, not a fact. It takes two vitally interested people devoting their best efforts to make it as good as possible. To the observers or the participants, nothing is sadder than a one-way marriage. I hope t h a t this article makes you think a little about this, as I have had to do, and that maybe you have found that we agree on these areas. However, even if we don't agree on anything stated here, if it makes you more sure of why you think what you do, we'll both be better off.

Hope Starts Baseball Season With Four Wins Olivet Stopped in M* A* A. Doubleheader Match Hope Cagers To Hope Netters Recover InHopeThird College's tennis t e a m trounced Olivet Wednesday on the Netters Drop Holland courts in a complete sweep Play Northern Hope College will play Northern Michigan College for its opening basketball game next season, Wednesday, Dec. 2 in the Civic Center, it was announced today by A1 Vanderbush, Hope athletic director. This addition of Northern to the schedule gives Hope a total of 21 games, including 10 at home. There is a possibility that the Dutch may also play Valparaiso University in a home game later in the season. Northern won the Michigan NAIA tournament for the second straight year during the past season and represented Michigan in the national NAIA tournament. The Wildcats compiled a season's mark of 16-5. Coached by Stan Albeck, Northern Michigan didn't have a senior on its 1958-59 club. Hope will play Northern at Marquette during the 1960-61 season.

First Two ALMA-HOPE Hope's tennis team got off to a slow start in the season by losing to Alma College 4-3 at Alma on April 16 in the MIAA opener.
