Chapel Check T0 Change ^ ttendance Drops The form of checking Chapel attendance will most likely be changed, the anchor confirmed this week. Because of a lack of student attendance and student dishonesty in filling out Chapel cards, the Chapel Board of Review and Religious Committee are expected to make recommendations to the Administrative Committee. The recommendations are expected to be of a more restrictive nature. Dean James Harvey said this week that it was "intolerable to have so many students being dishonest."

Crook to Deliver "Last Chance" in Dimnent Chapel Tonight Mortar Board Honor Society sponsors tonight its annual Last Chance Talk. The purpose of this talk is to give some member of the faculty a chance to speak to

all the students on campus as though this were the last time he would be able to talk to them. He may speak on whatever he wishes —giving advice, reminiscing or the like.


This is the second year of Mortar Board's "Last Chance Talks." Last year Dr. D. Ivan Dykstra of the Philosophy Department gave the address to the filled auditorium of Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

this was a holy day and that the college observes it as such. In recent months Graves Hall has been open Sunday afternoons for students who wish to visit and smoke. However, the Dean said this week that if abuses , of the privilege were continued, the building would have to be closed.

Band to Feature Trumpet Ghitalla Soloist Monday The Hope College Band, f e a the eminent trumpet solo. g t A r m a n ( j 0 chitalla, will present a concert Monday, April 29, at 8:15 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel. Armando Chitalla was awarded his degree from the Juilliard School of Music. Presently, he is on the faculty of Boston University. He plays associate first trumpet for the Boston Symphony Orchestra and he is a regular member and soloist of the Bos-

ber by Viennese composers written for Anton Weidinger and the newly developed keyed trumpet. Mr. Ghitalla will also play "Carnival of Venice" arranged by Del Stargers. The band under the direction of Mr. Robert Cecil will perform Ralph Vaughan Williams' "Toccata Marziale" and Vincent Persichetti's "Bagatelles for Band, Op. 87" in four movements — Vivace, Allegretto, Andante Sostenute and Allegro conpsirito. This work was commissioned by the Dartmouth College Band in 1962. In addition, the band will perform Jose Franco's "Aguero" and Turina's "Five Miniatures" — Dawn, The Sleeping Village, Promenade, T h e Approaching Soldiers, and Fiesta. Turina was one of the most representative of the modern Spanish "nationalist" school. The "Five Miniatures" were taken from his set of "Eight Miniatures for the piano" and arranged by John Krance.

Crook, who has said that he will speak on some different aspects of science, has taught for over ten years in the Hope Biology Department. Pre-med .students know him well as he teaches many of the advanced biology courses.

This year's speaker is Dr. Philip G. Crook of Hope's Biology Department. He will be speaking to all interested students at 7:00 p.m. in the Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

Because this year's senior class has 90 more students than last year's, Dimnent Memorial Chapel was determined as being "no longer adequate," according to a report made to the committee by Roger Rietberg. Locations considered were the Civic Center, Kollen Park and a spot on campus. Members of the Administrative Committee attending the recent meeting were Robert DeHaan, Dr. Paul Fried, Dr. James Harvey, Dean William Hilmert, Dr. John Hollenbach, Clarence Kleis, John May, Dean Emma Reeverts, Albert Timmer and Dr. Vander Lugt.

Tickets will be on sale on the campus until May 4 for the Hol•Ipnd Community Concert Series of 1963-64. Formerly student tickets were sold in the fall, but this year returning students are asked to purchase theirs at the same time as the regular patrons buy their memberships. Two concerts have already been booked: the Indianapolis Symphony and the Roger Wagner Chorale, both very wellknown groups. Student tickets cost three dollars for the series, which will include at least 5 concerts. Students Contacted During the week students will be contacted in dormitory and fraternity groups and at the table in Van Raalte Hall. Students have the opportunity of earning their own tickets by selling ten tickets a free one may be obtained.

It will focus attention on about 450 colleges and universities supported by Protestant denominations whose total membership in about 150,000 congregations exceeds 50,000,000. In addition to radio and television, the colleges expect to use news features, speakers, literature, motion pictures and slides to carry their messages to their constituents. Michigan colleges and universities expected to participate^ in the day are Adrian, Albion, Alma, Calvin, Hillsdale, Hope, Kalamazoo, Michigan Lutheran, Olivet, Spring Arbor and Suomi.

from the fraternity dorms, six from Kollen, four class presidents and four representativesat-large. In election of the representatives-at-large, each student will have four votes which he may cast in any way. The Dean of Students shall be given a permanent ex-officio membership on the Student Senate. These suggestions, along with those of the judicial and executive committees, will soon be ready for approval by the Council and the entire student body.

Carleton Boasts 15 Fellowships Northfield, Minn. — Fifteen seniors at Carleton College, a private liberal arts school, have been awarded slightly over one percent of the total number of Woodrow Wilson graduate fellowships offered nationally. Of all the schools in its district, only the University of Wisconsin • received more awards than Carleton. A total of ten students at the University of Minnesota were offered fellowships under the Woodrow Wilson program. This year 1,475 students were selected from the 9,767 who applied for Woodrow Wilson fellowships.

A new—and much shorter— Peace Corps Placement Test will be administered for the first time Saturday, April 27, in more than 800 communities across the nation. The new test to be given on an experimental basis, consists of half-hour sections on general aptitude and modern language aptitude. All applicants who have any knowledge of French or Spanish must remain to take the appropriate language achievement test of one hour's duration. By contrast, the former examination took four to eight hours, depending on optional sections. Both tests are non-competitive. Applicants who took the longer test do not need to take the new one. Dr. Edward R. Henry, director of the Peace Corps' selection division, said the new test has been designed on the basis of information gained after two years of experience with the longer examination. "Some tests in the former battery have been found to be of low validity in relation to the success of Volunteers in training and overseas. Other sections were more useful for proper class placement in training than they were for selection," Dr. Henry said. He added that college transcripts provide much of the information obtained from sections of the former test and that the Peace Corps now requires transcripts from every candidate. Increasing emphasis on aptitude for a foreign language for all Volunteers serving where English is not the main tongue has greatly increased the need for the language aptitude and achievement tests. Dr. Henry said. The new test will be given at 8:30 a.m. and should be taken by all new Peace Corps applicants for one of the 4,000 openings in 44 countries. Training begins in June, July and August. To be eligible to take the exam, candidates must either have submitted a questionnaire to the Peace Corps or must bring a completed questionnaire to the test site with them. Questionnaires and the location of the exam site may be obtained from the campus Peace Corps liaison officer. Dean James Harvey.

Austrian's Lecture Considers Breakdown of Older Values

Professor Talks on Literature from Indonesia ' "Well," said one student on his way out of Durfee hall a f t e r attending the English department banquet h e l d Tuesday night, "Well, that was certainly something I never knew about before." It was true for most of the 90 students attending the banquet that they had never before known anything about Indonesian Literature. But they do now.


Dr. Andries Teeuw, Professor of Bahasa Indonesian and Malayan linguistics at the State Uni-e versity of Leiden, brought to the English literature students and faculty the results of years of study, research and teaching in the field of Indonesian language and literature. "Java," said Dr. Teeuw, "was at first the cultural center of the Indonesian archipelago." T h e oldest literary pieces we have from Java are from about 900 A.D. and they show a remarkable sophistication and a highly developed art form. In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, the influence of Islam in the previously Hindu-dominated area promoted the shift of the literary center to the island of Sumatra, where Arabic influence made itself strongly felt. The literature was characterized by interest in common-place description of everyday life and in history and its heroes. It had a strong feeling of mysticism. In an attempt to telescope the whole of Indonesian literature in less than an hour. Dr. Teeuw then jumped to the nineteenth century, where he discussed one significant work only. The twentieth century has been characterized in Indonesian literature by Western influence and by the problems of a country in the midst of rapidly changing political situations, and drastic cultural alterations. Unified by one chosen language instead of the more than 200 which competed in literature before 1945, the Indonesian literature of recent years has shown a new national consciousness and an attitude of expectation as the Indonesian people look forward to an increasingly important role in the world of literature.

by Paul Hesselink Speaking to a nearly full house in Winant's Auditorium l a s t Tuesday afternoon. Dr. Friedrich Fassbinder told his audience, " I have some explosive ideas to offer." A colorful and dramatic lecturer, the Austrian professor went on to tell Hope students about his chosen topic "The Destruction and Synthesis in Central European Literature," t r y ing to show how the breakthrough into the 20th century has resulted in a breakdown of older values — i.e., the Christian system. Taking Kafka's The Trial — a title which, he noted, should be translated as The Process — as his first example, the lecturer described how Kafka reacted to his civilization. As a Jew, Kafka remained a foreigner who could see and analyze the breakdown of the Christian, or Roman Catholic, system. Fassbinder selected the doorkeeper scene a t the cathedral as an illustration. At this point, Joseph K., who is soon to die, hears a parable from the doorkeeper. The professor rejects both the religious and the philosophical interpretations of this parable or fairy tale, as he calls it. Fassbinder believes that the story should be viewed as a psychological unmasking in which K. is a son, the priest is a f a t h e r and the church is the mother. He said that The Trial could be interpreted as a literary expression of the dream and death psychology of Freud, whose works were published a few years before Kafka wrote his book. The son, the lecturer believes, is caueht between the mother and the father- a n d ~ conseauently comes to - realize t h a t life consists of bodily sensations only. Joseph K., according: to F a s s binder, is a typical representation of the nineteenth century intellectual who has lost his appreciation f o r symbols. At the same time, he asserted, Kafka has reduced the Roman Catholic Church attitude to that of the art historian. In this light, Joseph K.'s life is a disaster because nothine remains but physical values. It is, Fassbinder noted, a moral story because it is a cry of despair. Turning to Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain, the lecturer showed how this work is a positive attempt to come to a positive agreement between the conflictine elements of mind and body. Calling Mann one of the greatest representatives of the Central European artistic tradition, Fassbinder said that The Magic Mountain is the experience of the "intellectualization" of European civilization, which moves, with the hero of the book, from the unhealthy lowlands to the reviving mountains. Hans Castorp, the hero of this work, discovers that the answer to ugliness and decay is poetry— saying that we, as human beings, have a duty to combat negation of life. The goal of living becomes the attainment of an aristocratic mind with "love, not r e a son, as t h a t which is stronger than death."

In conclusion, Fassbinder said that all t h e questions of life cannot be answered, nor can all of the questions about these two works be answered. His attempt, he said, had been to give his audience a bit of the two points of view of the last 50 years in Central European literature. One aside during his discussion of The Magic Mountain was his assertion that "communism is one of the deep Romanticisms of the Europeans of the last century and ours."

States Needs in Cuban Reports; Considers US Actions in Crisis The Directorio Revolucionario Estudiantil has been sending weekly communications to t h e anchor entitled The Cuban Report. The most recent, however, is not a report of the happenings in Cuba, but an appeal to public opinion in America to help the disillusioned Cuban exiles in Dade county, Florida and Latin America. In explanation of their position, the Cubans stated, "Never did we ask any country, nor the United States, that foreign soldiers should die in our beaches, or fields, defending our Freedom. To meet death, ready to ^o into combat and martyrdom, Cubans were enough." One of the greatest causes of disillusionment listed in the communique was the refusal of the United States to send support to the revolutionary forces of Cuba, support which was "promised." As the DRE put it, "We Cu-

bans never received real military support from the United States. On the contrary, our efforts have always ended in forlornness, and unfulfillment of promises." In addition, the paper accused the United States of making a deal with the Russians and Britain of helping the Cuban Communist regime survive. "We believe that these coercive measures dictated to prevent the Liberation Crusade undertaken by the Cuban People are part of the secret dealing which took place between the United States and Soviet Russia, during the October crisis. Great Britain has settled a blockage designed to protect the Cuban Communist regime from our attacks. Therefore mobilizing their forces in order to defend the Communist's interests."

(Special Dinners for 95c) WHERE T H E BOYS ARE—College students from across the nation have been flocking to Daytona Beach in Florida for spring vacation. Grand Rapids Junior College represented a good part of the 35,000 several weeks ago. Several Hope students stopped during vacation on their way through to Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach.

People to People Plan Travel, Home The new Hope College chapter of University People to People is currently participating in a n a t i o n w i d e project. Chapter members all across the country are searching f o r American students whose families would like to host a visiting European student for three days this summer. European students will arrive in New York City July 9 and a f t e r orientation in Washington, D. C., will spend several weeks of independent travel in the U. S. Each student has specified four cities out of a total of 47 in which he would wish to live with an American family. As host to one of the visiting students, the American families are expected merely to live as usual, including the guest in the daily routine. Any extra activities or excursions, although encouraged, are not required. AH interested Hope students, especially those living in or near the 47 host cities are urged to pick up a brochure in Van Raalte lobby and if possible return one of the application cards. The host cities are: Baltimore,

*'Change in Chemistry" Recognized (EDITOR'S NOTE. This is a followup article to the editor's previous challenge to the OPUS which appeared in the Easter issue of the anchor. It is a condensation and commentary of an article, MA Change in Chemistry,H by Sherman B. Chickering, which appears in this weeks issue of SR.) by Thom Paul Wombwell What is the function of a col- experience that 'change of chemlege literary magazine? Ac- istry' t h a t a writer experiences cording to Sherman B. Chicker- when he sees his work in print." ing "nowhere but in the student He learns here to communicate magazine can the undergraduate in a way not otherwise teachable.

Further, this kind of publication gives the reader the opportunity to share in the "private vision of a friend or contemporary," and the chance to evaluate in the work of a few students the "esthetic convictions of a generation." It is in these two uniquely educational roles that the literary magazine functions in an educational situation.

To Fast or Not to Fast or Indigestion by Lew Scudder This evening I was deeply troubled. I had the misfortune of tripping over an unconscious student sprawled five feet from the door of the Kletz. The assorted foot prints in his skull and back made him appear rather unnoticed. He did look as though he could use some help, but since I was rather busy at t h a t moment I only had time to dash a handful of water in his face and wait briefly to see him stir. His hand reached up and scratched his head in a detached kind of way; then he sat up and even looked somewhat alive. Even though his features and condition were somewhat unique, the thing about him that caught my eye was a sign that hung around his neck. It read: I AM FASTING TO RAISE MONEY. I made a mental notation of it, but as I was leaving, he lifted his head and screamed at me: "Food! I want food! FOOD! FOOD!" I paused to inform him t h a t the Kletz would under no conditions be open before 8:30 the next morning; then I left. Having nothing in particular to do, and hesitatingly suspicious that my mischievous and angelic friend, Gummafell, was in some way connected with all this, I decided to waste my time by paying him another midnight visit. Perhaps he could enlighten me about the strange phemonenon of the student and the sign. It was dark and overcast; the wind whistled between its chattering teeth a low, sordid melody. I found a seat below the old pine just in time to get hit on the head by a falling cone, but, without taking personal affront, I calmly sat down and waited as one must for revelation, and soon lost myself in thought. While I was thus uselessly occupied, there came a rustling of branches and creaking of dry bark. I looked up again a t the tree and it had quite disappeared; in its stead stood smiling, giggling, bowlegged Gummafell, still shaking some bark off of his angelic robes. ''How do you do?" I asked. . "Quite well, thank you," he answered and sat down sedately on the grass. "And how are you?" "Just fine." He giggled and I looked at him with as bored an expression as I could put forth. "Not surprised, e h ? " he said. "You've tried that trick before," I answered, "only last time it was the other way a round." "Certainly, certainly, now I r e member. It's been some time

since you visited me." "That's true," I said. We both sat silently for a minute. "Gummafell," I began at last not really knowing just how to broach the subject, "Gummafell, are you . . . did you . . . have you . . . " "Well?" he asked impartiently. "What's all this about fasting?" I blurted out. He giggled bashfully. "Well?" I asked, and it was my turn to be impatient. "A stroke of genius, eh?" he said with a snicker. "What do you m e a n ? " "Oh, piety for pay and all that. Great for justifying religion," he answered, bouncily matter-offact. "I don't understand." "My dear boy, when will you catch up with the times? Why, only recently a new committee has been called together — of which I am chairman — to investigate the possibilities of setting up a department dedicated to the propagation of practical piety, to reconciling the heretofore devotional acts — which were really quite out of date, you know — to the practical temperment of this age. All very much tied up in economics and such, a very complex study, you understand, and yet so very necessary to make this all relevant — you know, Christianity and that sort of thing." "You're quite serious?" I asked, somewhat incredulously. "Oh, yes, yes, of course. My, my, we have some of our most competent economists, strategists, and gag writers working throughout the everlasting day on it." "But w h y ? " I asked. This urgent necessity of his, I could not fathom. It seemed a shame, really. I mean, if one must make money, one must make money; but, if I had not been a practicing faster, I had a t least a sentimental sort of respect for it as being idealistic and almost poetic in its dramatization of human devotion. "Really!" he said, "you are a bore aren't you? Now look. Answer me this question: Will people gladly and willingly part with their money?" "Yes," I said. "Really?" "Well, to a certain extent," I said. "H-m-m." He was silent for a moment, then he burst out: "What kind of realist a r e you? You know well t h a t they won't, don't y o u ? "

Features-Reviews Columnists' Opinions

"Yes," I answered sheeplishly. "Well t h e n ? " "What?" "Well, what better way can one collect funds for a holy cause than by giving that process of donation some equally holy title ? Fasting is a long standing act of piety, and to harness, if not its spirit, at least its name to such a cause is truely a stroke of — as I have said before — genius." He straightened up, brushed a cigarette ash off his robe and proudly proclaimed: "It v/as my idea you know." . .. . . I hit him! What else could I do? I hit him and left . . . I doubt if he'll forgive me for some time to come. As I was passing Van Raalte on my way home that evening I was struck by another sign. It was large and could hardly be over-looked. It read as follows: "Put your debt to God on the easy, low-interest credit plan. Convenient location, pleasant staff, friendly and prompt service. Heavenly Indulgences, Savings and Loan Inc., Offices in Van Raalte Hall, Hours: From Here to Eternity." "The Lord Loveth a Cheerful Giver," —Amen.

On the surface this function would not appear difficult to f u l fill. Yet, Chickering points to several obstacles in the way.of the realization of this function. First is the potential disapproval of both the readers and the college authorities. This obstacle is perhaps least crucial on the small campus where the literary m a g azine is usually a more integral part of the college life and the writers a r e known to more students. There is also the problem of time sufficient f o r the content and makeup aspects of publication only, with little if any f o r seeking out and cultivating t h e best writers on campus. A third obstacle is the feeling created by the campus that the magazine is "an island of creativity in a sea of apathy and academic specialization that stifles the arts when classwork deprives the writer of the time and training required to produce pieces for the magazine. A final obstacle is the tendency of the editorial board toward the F. Scott Fitzgerald tradition of a group of companions banding together to publish their own work. This condition is more likely to be found on a small campus where the major contributors, being primarily English majors or members of creative writing courses, are by their number in a better position to follow the tradition. The danger here is as Mr. Chickering points out, that most of the poets come from the "fringe or from the group of writers who gravitate toward one another with no evident correlation between their art and their academic interests." Granted one or any number of these obstacles, how can they be overcome? From the institutional corner comes help in the form of the creative writing course and the writer-in-residence who acts as an 'eminence grise' behind much student writing. But as Mr. Chickering fails to point out, it is too often the case that the creative writing teacher while serving an important critical function, is discipled as the writer-in-resident when he may have lost or, worse yet.

never had a sense of the importance of the 'change in chemistry* which only the publishing writer can really know and impart. When this happens, the magazine can degenerate merely to the equivalence of a book of readings In creative writing and lose sight altogether of the more important human chemical factor involved. It is precisely a t this point that the editor must assume his crucial responsibilities. F i r s t of these is that he accurately locate t h e fringe, the non-English majors, who have contributions and yet might be the most sensitive or reluctant about showing their works to their peers. A second responsibility is t h a t of "developing a productive relationship with both the instructors and his students," by, for example, conducting with a faculty advisor, bi-weekly sessions for students who wish to refine their writing. This is done at Trinity College, and Chickering holds that it is where the editor assumes this responsibility that the best magazines maintain general excellence. To prevent the magazine from falling into the Fitzgeraldian tradition, a conscious effort must be made to name a board which represents different interests and academic majors. The presence and participation on the editorial board of informed people from such disciplines as both the social and natural sciences, the languages, and perhaps even r e ligion could prove f r u i t f u l in a t taining the purpose of the literary magazine. The example of a recent editor of the Tufts magazine being a physics major helps substantiate the claim. With these considerations in view, if the literary magazine is to have a practical value beyond merely exposing the works of those few talents that may mature into genius, it must also provide the means f o r those quality flights of fancy which might never have the same opportunity again, or which, given the one opportunity for expression might also soar to the heights of genius.


De Capite Novel Reviewed The Coming of Fabrizze, a first novel by Raymond de Capite: Popular Library, 1961, 35c, is a novel of joyous affirmation in a time of bleak negation and omnipresent skepticism.

by Tom Werge Fabrizze ( p r o n o u n c e d F a breets-eh) is a lyric, a hymn, a joyous affirmation of life and man. As the novel's protagonist, he dispels the gloomy shadows of theological, philosophical, and literary pessimism, and conquers, by his presence, those myopic pedagogues who (conveniently) channel the diversity and wonder of existence into Absolute Categories of Sin and Goodness, Depravity and Grace, Despair and Rose-tinged Optimism. The story of Fabrizze, happily, cannot be glibly classified; he lives in Italy, but is sent to America by an uncle, who, significantly or not, is named Augustine (for those who wish to pursue religious symbolism f u r ther, Fabsizze's son will be named Paul). After the natural, spontaneous, even ethereal power of his joie de vivre has impressed itself on his community, and his ascension to the position of foreman on his road crew, Fabrizze is married. Had the narrative ended here, only the most inane humanitarian, Hollywood, (and possibly Norman Vincent Peale) would have been satisfied. But although the author idealizes Fabrizze, who has golden hair, a magic

smile, and the intuitive goodness and deep-rooted rapport with the natural world characteristic of a St. Francis, the portrait is not unreal, f o r Fabrizze, so like a Greek god, is proved vulnerable, not because of a physiological quirk, or his introduction to Capitalism, but because he is a man, and therefore fallible. (Although not necessarily sinful). I shall not reveal the contingencies of his decline here; suffice it to say that his altruism is displaced by greed, his natural love by expedience; his emotional (and unconscious) understanding that "everything that is, is holy" becomes obscured by mercenary considerations, perhaps even by the life-dulling restrictions of the intellect. And yet, ultimately, Fabrizze triumphs; forced into exile by self-knowledge and his guiltridden sense of responsibility for the economic ruin of his contemporaries, the song and the lyrical affirmation refuse to be forever silenced. Fabrizze has brought about, by the infectious desire f o r money that was himself and his town, financial disaster, but the town lives only for his return. I f t h e human heart is incapable of constant goodness, it is capable of aspira-

tion, and love, and the quality of compassion. Fabrizze will come home that night, and Poggio is attempting to persuade another who loves Fabrizze of the fact: "One thing more," said Poggio. "This Pipino is going to play the accordian tonight. But why am I telling you? Youll hear i t " "If I hear i t . . "How stubborn you are," said Poggio. ""Open your heart The music is there. I tell you I heard i t " "You hear what you hear," said Josephine. "But it's there," said Poggio.' And so it was. "You hear what you hear," said Josephine. "But it's there," said Poggio. And so it was. The simplicity of the novel is its profundity, its recognition of the goodness of the spirit (within limits), its "central motif." J. D. Salinger has said that no one has the right to disparage a world into which Kilroy, Christ and Shakespeare have come: Fabrizze's coming, too, leaves us in awe, with a lasting and emphatic impression t h a t the strange and unique phenomenon that is man, and the world in which he finds himself, are both infinite and sacred creations, to be loved, and even reverenced, because of their wonder-filled mystery.

Responsible letters, regardless of opinion, are - welcomed and will be published. They should be no lo<nE«* than 200 words, submitted by noon Wednesday, and signed. To conserve space, editors have right to edit. We should like to draw to the college's attention the way in which this year's Mission Drive was conducted. Our first complaint is in regard to this so-called "fasting." We do not condemn fasting as such, but rather the mood (which is what gives fasting its value) in which the act was done. Fasting is an expression of religious humiliation, especially of penitence. Where this mood was wanting, the prophets condemned it as displeasing to God (Isa. 58; 3-5; Jer. 14: 12). Fasting is an act done by an individual for himself without expected reward, direct or otherwise I Our other concern is a dollar sign on an invoice distributed, "in partial payment of the debt I enclose $ •" If we believe in indulgences, we would be going to Notre Dame, agreeing t h a t by placing money a t the disposal of the Church by buying an indulgence, a f t e r the sacrament of penance, temporal or purgatorial punishment still due for a sin will be forgiven. Penny Carnival and Mission Drive Auction were fine moneyraising ideas. It was too bad that they were ruined by "fasting" and overtones of financial debt to God. Remember, "Hell is paved with good intentions," not bad ones. William Peterson Jeffrey L. Eubank

Regulations The ambivalent and paradoxical nature of man would seem to stem from the fact that even with an end to guide his travel, each person has his own path to follow. Experience tells us there are decisions to make: any determinism is self-determinism. This is particularly true and trying for college students. College is a time for critical reorganization and adjustment of values within a new-found independence. It is a time of revolt and search, traumatic and critical. The following hypothetical Joe College has been statistically described by playboy magazine: 20.6 years old, 12 chances out of 100 married and an even bet he owns an automobile. As to outside jobs, the study by an independent research .firm shows t h a t 52.8% of America's college males work during the summer only, while 30.3% work during summer and school year. Asked about consuming alcoholic beverages, 66.8% of all male students responded affirmatively. Moreover, 60.5% drink beer, 25% wine, 50% liquor. Over half smoke and most are well on their way to acquiring the finer material things in life. These statistics are just that and by no means tell the Hope College student what he ought to do. It is to what he ought to do that this editorial would like to address itself, the above statistics not withstanding. Just as the classroom is the basis for the discipline of the liberal arts, the Chapel is the foundation of the Christian belief. As last week's editorial said, Hope's primary goal should be the search for truth through the liberal arts, with Christianity as the support and spiritual source. From this, the actuality of the situation requires a freedom to search for truth, meaning and a belief. The regulations of the college ought to accentuate the search and the belief, and allow the freedom. The main rules, however, take a pessimistic view of man and the college student in this time of change and emphasize the rules first and the questing second. The college worries more about being a home away from home, than about emphasizing the goals and the freedom within the goals. Look a t the first regulation in the Bulletin for example: . . must attend Chapel 70%." The necessity of compulsory attendance is al-

ways supported by examples of other colleges which adopted voluntary chapel and found that chapel attendance disappeared. How coercive attendance makes Christianity real and meaningful is not clear. A mature approach recognizes the crisis of the college student and affirms a vital Christianity. If Christianity and the church at Hope are to be effective they must move the soul through confrontation, not coercion. After all, remember Spiritual Life speaker John Cantelon's concept of the student-critic. The concept has been remembered by the SCA this year through discussions in small groups arid sponsorship of such speakers as Roman Catholic layman and liberal Dr. Duncan Littlefair. Chapel could well follow in the same direction. It is only through this emphasis that a change of student attitude from "what do I get out of Chapel" to "what can I give" can be brought about. A tragic possibility is that the Chapel system may become more strict next year, because the administration feels that the students have not been adhering to the "rules." Last spring the administration initiated the rule of no drinking f o r anyone. The college regulations say Hope discourages drinking. The reasons for the catalogue rule are most obvious but the restrictive rule is not. Responsibility and independence are not brought about necessarily, if a t all, through such childish restrictions. This editorial is not by anv means advocating liberalism or a blindness to values as if to compare us to a secular university. In fact signs of positive rather than restrictive steps are seen in the formation of judical boards in fraternities, sororities and the Student Council. Through these boards, students might come to know that they are sufficient to stand, but capable to fall. The other college regulations are somewhat minor and for the most part necessary. The emphasis should be on education, values and the search for truth and a belief, not on rules and their enforcement, as college students are dramatically changing. If more time were spent on this by student administration rather than on formation and enforcing of regulations for the purpose of forming proper character, Hope College would better service its institutional roll of education.

Van Raalte Attic Museum Proves Rationalist Wrong by Jim Michmerhulzen A few years ago the museum in the attic of Van Raalte Hall was only rumor. One heard only occasional references to a gorilla or a boa constrictor lurking up there, but no one would ever admit to having actually seen them. The more rational among us r e jected these rumors as pure superstition. And now the rationalists — Lol — have been proven wrong. The topmost floor of VR is full of stuffed beasts and missionary souvenirs. About the time of this discovery the philosophy department moved to the Chapel basement. What traffic has philosophy with gorillas and reptiles and Indian arrowheads? In our present location we are surmounted only by a place of wor-

ship . . . which, I suppose, is as it should be. I remember an ethics class t h a t met up on the third floor of VR. Now we know what we didn't then, that while we discussed Plato and St. Thomas and Spinoza, we were being watched by a big stuffed gorilla. And a serpent And tons of dust, and cobwebs and makers of cobwebs. And who knows what else. The more I think about that chamber of horrors the more eerie the image becomes. I've never seen it, of course; I don't want to. Especially now that it is being cleaned up and f u m i g a t ed. But then it's just as well anyther buildings nor men should have beasts in their top stories. Let us have light.

Maybe I've got my facts wrong; yes, I do. If I remember correctly, the attic is to be cleaned and then turned into a museum again. Back will come the shaggy ape and the boa constrictor, the mummified and sanctified remains of Heroes of the Faith, the Indian arrowheads and all. Probably some live squirrels too — they must live somewhere. And men will still have museums in their heads, and nothing else. Except maybe squirrels. Oh, well, analogies aren't always the most practical things in the world. One can hardly object to a fourth-floor museum on grounds of inappropriate symbolism. Look, f o r example, a t the dirty test tubes and bottles of Little Theatre, soaring above formaldehyde-soaked animals. I

am not unfriendly towards the sciences, but I am glad that actors are up there above the scientists. Having read what I have written so far, a friend had just made a suggestion about the VR a t tic. "Move the philosophy depart-


ment up there," he said. "Brilliant," I said. "But it would never work. The Bible department would never stand f o r such a move." We'll just have to get used to the idea of having a gorilla overhead^! guess.

Glenn Van Wieren threw a four-hit shut-out against the Britons in the opener, as the Dutch won 5-0. Clare Van Wieren and Keith "Barrel" Balcom each had two hits. Clare drove in one run while The Barrel was responsible for driving across three Hope tallies. The Dutch also backed up Van Wieren by playing flawless ball afield. The Dutch also copped the nightcap 7-3 behind the pitching of Van Til and Bosworth, with Van Til picking up the win. The Flying Dutchmen banged out nine hits. Ron Van Huizen collected three of these, plus a hit in the first game to give him 4-7 for the day. Ferris Win The Flying Dutchmen fattened their record against non-league foes last week. The Dutch split a Saturday double header with Ferris. Hope won the first game 1-0 behind the two-hit pitching of freshman George Bosworth. Bosworth walked only one batter and fanned ten. Glenn Van Wieren drove in the winning run with a bases loaded single in the ninth. The Bulldogs of Ferris rallied to take the nightcap 3-1, blanking the Dutch with four hits. Jim Van Til pitched the first four innings for the Dutch-

men. Fireman Neil Goodrich finished up. Goodrich absorbed the loss. On Monday the Dutch took a doubleheader from Northwood College. Pat Pryce pitched the Dutch to an 8-3 victory in the opener. Rog Kroodsma and Glenn Van Wieren each had three-run homers to pace the Dutch hitting attack. Rog Kroodsma followed with a three-hitter in the nightcap as the Dutch won 7-3. Ron Ven Huizen provided the key blow with a three-run homer.
