"Every community has specialists who have something to offer gifted children," said Dr. DeHaan. "These people should be utilized to aid professional educators in developing programs f o r gifted children." He then outlined a program for enlisting the aid of educating laymen in the community, and stressed t h a t such programs had been tried in test situations and received with enthusiasm by both professional school people and community leaders. Such a program should center in the school, said Dr. De Haan, and the school would have responsibility f o r identifying gifted children and providing necessary administrative personnel to monitor the accelerated education program. Laymen trained in scientific or cultural pursuits would then be asked to assist the professional educators in their cwn specialties and spheres of interest. Dr. DeHaan is the author of the book Educating the Gifted Child.

Symphonette Tour . . . . Badlands, Black Hills and Buffalo by Betty Ann Rothwell Another symphonette tour, filled with f u n and memories f o r all, has been completed. Dr. Rider kept himself busy conducting the eleven concerts and joining in the merriment with his twenty-nine musicians during their two weeks on the road. Why don't you all join with us for a "typical" day on t o u r ? The sun is just rising as sleepy-eyed musicians arrive at the bus only to be greeted by the cheery voice of the bus nurse, Betty Ann Rothwell with her daily morning pill call! Once we're off, card games begin in the aisles. All is settled and peaceful ( ?) when oops-another state border. (We crossed ten.) A warning is sounded and like an army corps at revelry, our well drilled fellows manage to hide away illegal folding chairs for border inspection, one-half second is the record! At one of these stops we almost lost Diane Sluyter as she rescued a tumbling tumbleweed to bring home. And speaking of losing someone, we actually did leave Greta Weeks behind in Rapid City, South Dakota to recuperate from illness, but she quickly rejoined us in Chancellor, South Dakota. Riding became our second nature throughout the day, but there was always something to see, like corn fields, prairies, herds of cattle, and more corn fields! On an unusual day we might see a buffalo herd, or the capital at Lincoln, Nebraska, or the Red Rocks amphitheater in the Rockies, Pikes Peak, Cheyenne, Wyoming, the Black Hills, or the Badlands of South Dakota. These would be a little different! Several of the members had a hay-day in the Wall Drug Store in the Badlands. The cowboys hats purchased there by Ev Nienhuis and Bill Kuyper were so becoming that two passing children cried, "Hey look, real cowboys!!" As five o'clock drew near, we always became anxious to reach

Spice and Crumbs It has been said that when the groundhog appears and the first crocus pushes its ugly little head above the cold ground, spring has then officially arrived. However, these are not the real signs of spring. They are but signs that a weary nature has again given in to the expectations of mankind and more out of compliance than Richard Jaarsma anything else, institutes a few trifles to make us think t h a t a new season is here again. The real signs of spring are the soggy and weather-beaten chairs at Kollen Hall, left outside in the rain; the throwing again of cigarette butts into the stone ashtrays instead of into the snow; the talk of Bock beer and smoked fish. These are the real signs of spring!


It strikes me, since spring is here, t h a t this would be a good time to air some of the ideas that have been festering in the back of my brain, causing me to be rather moody and short-tempered a t times. As the housewife cleans her house—but the analogy has been used before. One thing t h a t has struck me in the past weeks is the macabre display of posters around and within the college. Apparently this is not National - Keep - Your - College Free - From - Litter - Week. I t

our destination f o r the night. Anything could happen to us as, f o r instance, the night our bus was five tons overloaded for a road into town and school buses had to drive us to the church. Too bad we couldn't have used Judy Tysse's suggestion and held our suit cases on our laps to lighten the load! But we felt this wouldn't have been too helpful! Upon entering each new town, our eyes were glued to the window looking for new scenery—or rather for new outhouses! Who would be the lucky one tonight? Walking beneath the Western moon wasn't always so very inviting during this vacation! Before our nightly meal came 'mail call'! Bright eyes and happy faces were quite common when that letter arrived f r o m the "most important person back home!" Our evening concerts and playing experiences were all fun f o r us and each was a little different. The only real complaint came from our woodwind "Baroque" trio when they objected going to church five times on Sunday and playing each time to boot! One other concert will also stand out when Betty Ann, due to a bribe by her fellow musicians, turned the woodland glade into a South Dakota Pasture during her narration of Three Trees, You should have seen Dr. Rider's surprised look! A f t e r the concert is over it is time to find our homes f o r the night. With a gracious smile on our faces, we cheerfully greet our 'family'. Once at home your are royally fed and talked to as you sit droopy eyed into the wee hours telling "all about yourself!" Well rain, shine, snow, or mud, the symphonette must get through! And thus we sleep a while to prepare ourselves for another "typical" day! We shall always have fond memories when they look back on Symphonette tour-1958.

by Richard Jaarsma a position on the Student Council so important that we must throw up our hands completely, with reckless abandon, and deface the quiet beauty of the chapel and other buildings with grotesque signs lauding the innate worth and goodness of those candidates who propose to better our college society? Ich weiss nicht! With the advent of spring, it is the wont of many men of letters to be filled with a religious fervor for their sins, committed during the course of their dreary existence in the cold months of winter, and write what they call their "confession." Why should I be different? Spring is here and I'll make a clean breast of everything! Here are a few of the things that I've always spoken against but really enjoy: I really like: 1. The smell of synthetic cabbage in the science building. 2. Hillbilly music, the more tenor the better. 3. Little Lulu comic books. 4. Harry S. Truman. 5. The singing commercial f o r L and M cigarettes. 6. Channel 3 Clubhouse. (I'm blushing) Now t h a t my conscience is free, I can walk with impunity between classes, with my head held high, instead of skulking around with a black cape over my face. Incidentally, visit the book-store once in a while, and not only f o r required reading and souvenirs, but read something on your own. The Age of Belief put out by Men-

ing, the men of Phi Tau Nu accepted a proposed life insurance plan which is designed f o r the establishment of a fund f o r the use of the f r a t e r n i t y in f u t u r e years. The acceptance of this plan culminated the fraternity's search f o r a method of establishing a more active alumni association which would participate in aiding the active f r a t e r n i t y in meeting their financial needs as well as establishing a reserve fund f o r house improvements and scholarships. This insurance plan was accepted by the f r a t e r n i t y a f t e r several interviews with a representative of Mutual of New York. The original plan, which was designed by Mutual of New York, was established f o r the purpose of having alumni of larger universities and colleges contribute financially to their alma mater. It is believed that this is the first time t h a t such a proposal has been adopted by a fraternity. The plan involves interested members subscribing to a life insurance policy with the company. The fraternity member is given the full coverage of the insurance policy. The interest from the policy is paid to the f r a t e r n i t y f o r a predetermined period of time. Thus the member actively contributes to the fraternity now and also when he is an alumni. To administer the newly established fund, a board of advisors will be established. Fraternal: Norman Peddie lead the f r a t e r nal society in devotions at their literary meeting this past Friday evening. "Philosophies of life" were presented by Mick Faber, Henry Doele, and Richard Gantos. Also included in the meeting were: Jack Faber who presented the humor paper, Dan Ritsema who lead group singing and Art Olsen who served as master critic.

Eugene TeHennepe to Attend Harvard on Danforth Fellowship Eugene Te Hennepe has recently received notification of his appointment as a Danforth Fellow and of his acceptance a t Harvard University. He will begin graduate study at Harvard next fall, working toward a Ph.D. in philosophy. Gene is a veteran whose home is Baldwin, Wisconsin. Following graduation f r o m high school, he completed a two-year course in business administration. He also tried his hand at selling, clerical work, and a year of hunting and fishing before coming to Hope. At Hope he has been active in the YMCA, I.R.C., and the Chapel Choir, maintaining an outstanding academic record as well. In order to use the Danforth Fellowship a t Harvard, he turned down two other scholarships: the Regents at the University of Michigan, and the Knapp Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin. The Danforth Fellowship, subject to yearly renewal on the basis of satisfactory work, is an all-expense scholarship intended to aid the student in attaining his Ph.D. f o r the purpose of college teaching. Besides financial aid, the Fellowship has Danforth representatives on each campus and conducts a oneweek camp a t t h e end of each summer f o r the purpose of stimulation and guidance.

OUR SENIORS SPEAK Editors Note: The following articles are the first in which the Anchor will attempt to duplicate somewhat the recent experiment at Princeton University by having several seniors express, each week, their opinions and philosophies on Education, Religion, Politics, Marriage, etc. The topic f o r this week is Education.

An Science Student Speaks on Education . . .

• •



In order t h a t we might get to the root of the problems in American education, we must first look to the elementary school. Living in an atomic age, as we do, the children should be t a u g h t the fundamentals of education. I think t h a t too many frills and not enough of the essentials are being taught in our schools today. A foreign language should be introduced into the lower grades of the elementary school. In some communities this has been done, f o r children are just as capable and more enthusiastic about learning a foreign language in the grades than they are later in high school. With the importance of science in the world today, our children should also be given a taste of science, for they will be the scientists and leaders of tomorrow. I fimly believe that those people who are called "gifted" by psychologists, should be separated from the rest of the group and given special instruction. Too many brains are going to waste by being held back with the slower pupils. The high school, on the whole, is too lax—kids are getting away with "murder"! High school students could take much more than they do—they are j u s t becoming soft sitting in study hall! They should be required to take some math and science, as well as History and English. On the college level, I feel that a course in philosophy should be required of all students. People must learn to think! That is one of the problems of the American people . . . they don't know how! We hear people talking about the changes t h a t m u s t be made in our high schools and colleges, but first of all, I think we m u s t make some changes in our elementary system—where basic training begins.

How About It, Girls? Some say girls are like newspapers: They have f o r m ; they always have the last word; back numbers are not in demand; they have great influence; you can't believe everything they say. They are thin—thinner than they used to be; they get along by advertising; and every man should have his own and not try to borrow his neighbor's.

From the Editors Desk The 1958 campus elections are now history. While the new officers are certainly to be congratulated, it is even more appropriate to congratulate the retiring Student Council officers, Bob Lesniak and Anna Geitner, for a job well done. 1 am sure that 1 speak for the entire student body when I say that the efforts of these two to maintain good government at Hope College have not gone unappreciated. —J.

Religious Activity Poses Vital Queries Real Thought, Concern Not 'Revival' Needed "I believe t h a t higher education can make a unique contribution to morals and religion. I do not believe it can make some of the contributions expected of it, and I think these expectations obscure the real purposes and achievements," stated Robert M. Hutchins in a telling comment on the responsibility and the inadequacy of campus religious activity. - Viewed in these terms the current campus "religious revival" often seems f a r wide of the mark. Not only do detailed studies such -as that of the Harvard Student Council cast doubt on its depth, they even suggest t h a t more noise, not more students participating, is the major change over the past ten years. Too often religious emphasis weeks are exactly that—religion f o r one week—and church attendance is compartmentalized and empty of relation to daily decisions. Granted Hutchins' contention that the purpose of higher education is to provoke thinking about important subjects and to stimulate the discovery of as much truth as can be learned about them neither unthinking piety nor occasional inspiration is adequate. Year round work with a real relation to everyday problems and individual decisions is needed. This exists on a few, but all too few, campuses. President Bernard Christenson of Augusburg College recently framed the goals of such a program in terms of three realizations it should bring to the individual: "I must do for my brother that my brother cannot do f o r himself." His need for material assistance and equality of opportunity are my concern." We are not called to the canon of conventional respectability." It is not enough to hold "Christian" views and allow others to deny the rights of our fellow men. "When our own initiative and effort is not enough, then we must turn to society." Each of us is responsible for seeing that problems are tackled, not for following a f t e r someone else leads. National Student News

Student Thought on Student Marriage To marry or not to marry while in college is a big question for many students. A Seattle Pacific college sociology professor. Dr. C. Melvin Foreman, has done research on the subject, recording the views of many students. Here are some of his findings, as reported by SPC's FALCON. Forty percent of the married couples said they wouldn't recommend combining college and marriage. Wives who m a n y a f t e r their sophomore year but before graduation take a dim view of the venture. Perhaps in retrospect the time between their f o r m e r single status and graduation now seems very short, but at present the graduation goal looks unattainable. Wives who marry a f t e r high school graduation or in the freshman year seem happy. Perhaps their education aspirations were limited.

Couples who financed marriage with just one partner assuming major financial support didn't recommend marriage. Those who had worked out what they considered a cooperative financial program were willing to advocate marriage. Having children while a student did not significantly affect attitudes. However, having an unplanned child created a negative feeling toward being a married undergraduate. Students who began their first serious dating in college were hesitant to advocate marriage. Dr. Foreman noted many of these "had been involved in a brief but intensive pattern of courtship." Parents play a part in the success of the campus marriage. Men who were reluctant to recommend marriage came from homes where there had been strong parental opposition to the marriage in the first place. Parental opposition did not appear to be a factor in the lives of wives opposing college marriage.



Letters to the Editor Dear Editor: You may, if you choose, disregard this letter as the usual, and therefore unimportant grumblings of a typical alumnus of the college: given to criticizing anything and everything that is done on campus if done differently- than when he was there. But as a recent graduate, and one who, as a student, was close to both the student council and the Anchor, I feel constrained to express my increasing concern at the present attitude toward the work of the student council as expressed in your columns. From time to time during the year, I have noted mention of an amendment to the Council's constitution, making class officers members ex-officio of that body; in the latest issue, I see an editorial above your signature taking the council to task f o r its system of elections, a system which you claim gives undue weight to the fraternities and sororities. As a member of the committee which revised the constitution some two years ago, allow me to state the case for the Council as presently constituted. Before the revision, representation on the council was a rat's nest of confusion: representatives were elected f r o m virtually any and all student organizations, and from the classes, which scarcely qualify as "student organizations" in the accepted sense of the word. When the committee was wrestling with the problem of representation, a major portion of our time was spent considering the philosophical basis of representation. We believed at t h a t time, and I believe now, t h a t this basis rests in communication. It should be axioatic that no one can t r u l y r e present an organization with which he either cannot or does not communicate. It was for this reason that the class officers were NOT made representatives to the Council. The average class had, I believe, about three meetings annually during my tenure as a student, and I highly doubt that the percentage is appreciably greater now. In dealing with the representation issue, we were, then, confronted with a situation not of our making. I refer to the strength of the campus fraternities and sororities. Anyone who has had the opportunity of comparing the fraternities at Hope and those at, say a state school such as I am now attending, canno but be struck by several facts: (a) Hope has an unusually high percentage of affiliation (two years ago it was 75% f o r the men and 98.7% for the women); (b) the rivalry between them, although great, is exceptionally "friendly" in comparison to other schools; (c) most of the campus social life centers, directly or otherwise, around these societies. This was, as I have said, a situation to be reckoned with, not an "ideal" one. The fact t h a t the fraternities and sororities are primary channels of communication on campus cannot be denied, but it should be obvious to anyone who has eyes to see. I F the class organizations were important on Hope's campus, the situation would be different; if classes held weekly meetings, and took time f o r a student council report as the fraternities do, this would be an entirely different system. But the first consideration in political organization is, and must be, the facts as they are, not as we would like to have them. We cannot make the classes stronger by fiat of the student council. Placing class presidents

on the council will not increase the strength of either the classes or the council. And once the door is opened to representatives outside of those of the fraternity and independant groups, who is to draw the line between organizations entitled to send a representative and those not so privileged. Once this kind of hunt gets started, some pretty wild geese can get chased! The thrust of your editorial seems to be that fraternities are nominating their most "popular" candidates, rather than those most qualified to hold office. With this opinion, I do not agree, particularly in light of those men nominated for this year's offices—all personal friends of mine. But, assuming that it were true, I see no reason to expect that the nominees of any other group would follow a different pattern. There is a tendency in all elections of any kind to elect the most "popular" man, and no wishful thinking to the contrary can change this fact. And, regrettable as it may seem, the first duty of any candidate is to get elected, for it goes without saying that no program can be effected by a losing candidate. Dear Editor: You mention that it "does not take much imagination to think of remedies" f o r the gloomy picture you have painted. Might I point out that it takes even less imagination to envision maladies where none exist. The propensity to "meddle" with an established order without first considering the conditions under which that order became established is a common one in human affairs. If conditions h a v e i n d e e d changed since last year, perhaps I am the "voice crying in the wilderness", chanting the ritual of an obsolete age. If this be true, I should be the last person to stand i i u t b e way of progress. But your contentions are not borne out by the facts; and one of these facts is that the men running f o r election this year are all well-qualified to hold office, regardless of from whom they secured their nomination. The limit of what can be established by legislation is one which meddlers constantly forget. Man cannot be improved by edict or statute, as those who supported the Eighteenth Amendment to the Federal Constitution discovered to their sorrow. Their fight to abolish the consumption of alcohol not only failed in its principle aim, but ushered in new evils of bootlegging, hijacking, and organized crime. Alas, but noble precepts do not always vanquish stubborn facts, particularly when imposed from an external source rather than evolved internally. Should the Constitution of the student council need amendment, by all means tailor it to suit changed conditions, but do not tamper with it out of a lack of other work to do. To do so is to invite f u r t h e r confusion and disaster by the process best described as "throwing out the baby with the bath water." —Robert A. Winter EDITOR'S NOTE: Apparently Mr. Winter does not read the ANCHOR editorials very carefully, f o r he has not only misjudged the spirit in which they were written but he has also read several things into them which do not appear th$r&.. I do not, as Mr. Winter seems to believe, advocate anarchy. P a s t editorials have aimed at bringing the Student Council Amendments to the attention of the student body and have chided the student body f o r a lack of interest in Student Council affairs. I have great respect f o r the Student Council, but, being a man-

made institution, it is not perfect. Furthermore, I see nothing commendable in imitating the ostrich and pretending that its imperfections do not exist. Neither do 1 see anything commendable in compromising with its imperfections. If that were an honorable thing to do, Christianity, likewise, would long ago have furled its banners and given up the struggle with sin, declaring sin to be not an "ideal" condition but one "to be reckoned with." Mr. Winter discusses at length the basis of Student Council representation, defending the societies as "channels of communication." That is his privilege, but it really is unnecessary to argue the point with me. I never mentioned, let alone criticized the present system of representation—society representation. On the contrary, I heartily approve of any system that grants adequate representation to all—society members and independents. The electoral system which was the subject of my editorial is another matter and is, I still believe, the weakest aspect of student government at Hope College. That women are not permitted to seek the office of Student Council President, that well qualified independents and "inactives" cannot seek office, and t h a t many well qualified students are kept f r o m running because each society can nominate only one candidate f o r each office, are matters of f a c t that cannot be refuted. That societies are tempted to nominate their most popular members, t h a t elections tend to become just another area of society rivalry, and that this rivalry is the first concern of most voters is admitted even by the society themselves. That t h e societies yielded to temptation this particular time and nominated "popular" candidates for Student Council offices, I did not state and did not mean to infer. I do not believe that anyone on campus received t h a t impression either! I am rather surprised to be called a "meddler." Most of my critics accuse me of not "meddling" enough. Whether my title be editor-in-chief or meddler-in-chief, I plan to continue bringing to the attention of the campus matters that I think are of significance. - J . F.


"Cold War" Conference Report by K. Earl Scudder Hope College was recently among thirty educational institutions, east of the Rocky Mountains, that were extended an invitation tb attend the Twentieth Annual Public Affairs Conference at Principia College. Principia, the only Christian Science College in the World, is situated on a fourteen-acre campus, on the banks of the Mississippi River, near St. Louis. This year's conference was the twentieth of its kind held on the Principia Campus. Since 1939, the School of Government at the Principia College has presented a PAC either f o r its own students and undergraduates or including faculty delegates from colleges and universities f r o m the the Middle West.


The Conferences are organized and conducted entirely by the students of the College. Students choose the topics, write the analysis book, and administer the conference procedure and all the details with the aid of the committee work of 150-200 students. Great pride is taken in the f a c t that Principia is one of the three schools in the United States to hold an annual public affairs conference. The others are West Point and Texas A. and M. The schools participating in the 1958 Conference were: Texas A. and M., Ball State College, Carthage College, CCNY, Eastern Illinois University, Greenville College, Harding College, H a r r i s Teachers College, Hope College, University of Illinois, University of Missouri,

University of Tulsa, Wabash College, W a s h i n g t o n University, Wayne State University, State University of South Dakota, Rockford College, R o o s e v e l t University, Southern Illinois University, Southern Illinois University (ROTC), Southwestern at Memphis, U.S. Air Force Academy, West Point Military Academy, University of Houston, Illinois College, Illinois State Normal University, Indiana State Teachers College, Monmouth College, Ouachita Baptist College, and Parsons College. A f t e r arriving at the Principia Campus April 17, the participating delegates were briefed on the various aspects of the Cold W a r by seven prominent governmental and foreign affairs experts. Here are some details on their qualifications and parts in the Conference. Charles Burton Marshall, delivering the keynote address f o r PAC on Thursday, laid out the whole problem of the Cold War in overall analysis. Mr. Marshall is an Associate at Washington Center for the Study of Foreign Policy. From January, 1955 - June, 1957, he was Political Advisor to the Prime Minister of Pakistan. He is also author of the book. The Limits of Foreign Policy. The political w a r f a r e expert for the conference was Dr. Robert Bowie. Currently Director of the Harvard University Center f o r International Affairs, Mr. Bowie graduated f r o m Princeton summa cum laude. He has also served as advisor to Secretary Dulles a t the London Conference on the Suez problem. Norman Burns advised the delegates on the economic aspects of




the PAC problem. Mr. Burns is Deputy Regional Director f o r the Near East and South Asia International Cooperation Administration of the Department of State. From 1958 to 1956 he was chief economic advisor to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in Beirut. Mr. Burns is the author of The Tariff of Syria, 1933. Henry A. Kissinger, military expert f o r PAC, is serving the government as Consultant to the Operations Research Office, and to the Weapons Systems Evaluation Group of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Dr. Kissinger has published two books: Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy and A World Restored. Stephan T. Possony, advisor in psychological cold war, was born in Vienna in 1913 and educated in Austria. Dr. Possony's present role is that of professor of International Politics in the Graduate School of Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. His writings include Tomorrow's War (1938), and Strategic Air Power (1949). Saville R. Davis, Managing Editor of The Christian Science Monitor, spoke to delegates on the moral and spiritual aspects of the cold war problem. Mr. Davis has been with the Monitor since 1932 and served in such antebellum capacities as State Department and Mediterranean Correspondent, The Chistian Science Monitor, (despite recent adverse comments published in our Anchor), has been noted as one of the most outstanding newspapers in this country. A f t e r the Keynote and briefings, the delegates split up into commissions f o r discussion. Moderators for the commissions were

students rather than experts, as the purpose of the commission is f o r students to think and reason with other students rather than to absorb from one wiser and more experienced. Points discussed were: (1) Military Doctrine—limited or total war and conventional or nuclear war, (2) Disarmament, (3) Evaluation of Summit Meetings, (4) Neutralization of Europe, (5) North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and (6) Uncommitted a n d / o r underdeveloped states or areas in general. A few of the results were t h a t : (1) NATO allies should be supplied with nuclear armaments, if they desire them. (2) Basic research and nuclear information should be shared with our allies f o r the promotion of g r e a t e r efficiency. (3) Summit meetings are of little avail without preliminary conferences. (4) De facto recognition should be granted to Red China. The result of ten hours of discussion was a commission report recommending specific policies or alternatives to policy, with reasons for these recommendations, and expected beneficial and detrimental consequences of each policy.
