Dr. Cole Brembeck, head of teacher education at Michigan S t a t e University, spoke on Look Onward, F u t u r e Teacher.

De Vries, Vander Lugt, And Ten Pas Also Win A f t e r a windy week of fallen posters, shredded signs, and hectic activity f o r campaign managers and candidates alike, the suspense of the spring election season was ended at the student council party last Friday night with the announcement of the winners in one of the most hotly-contested elections in several years. According to student council vicepresident Penny Ramaker, a total of eighty-two percent of the student body voted in the final elections, a record f o r recent years. Voters were lured to the polls by the Sorosis vote-birds and the following slate of candidates: f o r president of the student council, Dave Van Eenenaam, Fraternal, and Gord Hondorp, Arcadian; f o r vice-president of the student council, Norma Damstra, Delta Phi, and Carol Matheis, Dorian; for senior class president. Jack Walchenbach, Arcadian, and John De Vries, Cosmopolitan; f o r president of the junior class. Bob Vander Lugt, Knickerbocker, and Blaine Timmer, F r a t e r n a l ; for the sophomore class presidency, Carl Ver Beek, Fraternal, and John Ten Pas, Cosmopolitan. Victors Give Views The victorious candidates were announced by the present officers of their classes, and by Penny Ramaker and John Adams, incumbant student council leaders. Following the election announcement, the Anchor interviewed the successful candidates, and received the following replies to queries concerning their plans for the coming year: Dave Van Eenenaam, newly elected president of the student council: "I feel that we should develop within the student body an intensive interest in council affairs, and make sure t h a t the council itself will benefit the students, the college, and the community."

PSM To End Season With Kiddie Komedy "Rumpelstiltskin" is on the agenda for the last P&M production of the year. The annual children's play, produced by the Theatre Production II class, will have two performances, one morning and one afternoon, on May 5, in the litt'.e theatre. The story, which concerns a ghoulish creature who has the supernatural power of spinning straw into gold but demands high rewards f o r his labors, takes place in a f a i r y tale atmosphere at the edge of the world. Co-directors B a r b a r a Brookstra and Marianne Wierks have announced the cast which is as follows: Alyce DePree will appear in the title role of Rumpelstiltskin, and Marianne Wierks i s t h e witch, Mother Hulda. The Miller and his wife and d a u g h t e r are played by Del Farnsworth, Una Hunt, and J a n Van Peursem, respectively. Gothol and Ingert, the king's two couriers, will be played by Joe Woods and Bill Van Doom. The tyrannical king is Marlin Vander Wilt, and the prince is Bob Van W a r t .

Carol Matheis, incoming veep for the council: "We should work with caution next year with the new and revised constitution and committee system, in order to find its f a u l t s and advantages, and to see generally if it is workable." John DeVries, president of the class of '57: "I think we can develop more unity for the class through co-sponsoring with the more powerful student government a wider social program, and reinstate that forgotten tradition: the class memorial." Bob Vander Lugt, junior class prexy: "We should provide a f a s t e r integration of the freshmen into the student body a f t e r their intiation, so that they will feel that they are a p a r t of the school, and realize this more quickly than other new classes of the past." John Ten Pas, leader of next year's sophomores: "We can develop class organization and class spirit through projects such as social events and services. If we can receive the support shown to me this year, all of our endeavors as a class will surely be successful. Under the revised student council constitution, newly-elected officers take office immediately, and in accordance with this, Dave and Carol were sworn into office following the announcement of the election results. John Adams, outgoing president, also stated the council's thanks to members of the Sorosis society, who manned election booths, and conducted a "get-out-the-vote" campaign this year.

S. C. Elections — Better Late Than Not At Ail!

A f t e r weeks of planning ingenious eye-catching propaganda f o r our friends, and another week of displaying all our activity, we're anxiously awaiting the outcome of t h e Student Council Elections. There were several changes made in the campaign week program which found Gord Hondorp, Ted The Anchor does not like to have Redding, and Dave Van Eenenaam its leg pulled in this way, and is running f o r the presidency of the hiring five additional staff members Student Council.

By your attitude and by your disregard for others in the Reading Room you have indicated your unwillingness to co-operate with Miss Bailey and library assistants there. For this reason it would seem that you had forfeited your right to use the Reading Room. I am sure that you can find many other places on the campus to talk. If, at the end of a month, you care to convince me that you can accept the responsibilities t h a t accompany the privileges of a library, I shall be happy to listen. Mildred E. Singelton, Librarian

This year's campaign was carried on in one week. Candidates f o r both offices spoke together at an all-college assembly in the gym Tuesday evening. Balloting took place yesterday and today with the results being announced tonight at a Student Council p a r t y at the Lit Club. Another innovation was a campaign carried on by a sorority to arouse interest in voting and have the students take an active part in campaign week.

TO: Mildred E. Singleton FROM: Students ABOUT: Co-operation By your attitude and by your method of execution of disciplinary action in the Reading Room you have indicated your unwillingness to co-operate with the students in their efforts to study effectively. (In the final analysis, is it not the student, who has quite consistently been engaged in the a r t of study, the best judge of the atmosphere in which studying may be done most effectively ?) For this reason it would seem t h a t you had f o r feited your right to be respected f o r your ill advised disciplinary action. We are sure that you can find many other places on the campus to assert your authority more wisely. If, in the passage of time, you can convince us that your action has been warranted, we will respectfully accept your mandates. S. Schneider and D. Spaan, Students P.S. Our a r g u m e n t is not against the librarian's right to use disciplinary action to preserve harmony in the library; r a t h e r it is against the times, and means, and the circumstances under which this action is inaugurated.

"U-m-m-m-m-m And ALittle Bit More" Although it must be supposed that the excellent slate of candidates presented to the student body in last week's election had something to do with the size of the turnout at the polls, a good deal of credit f o r the record crowds must be given to the members of the Sorosis society. Their snappy attire, their diligent work at the polls, and their clever "vote bird" signs all contributed to a record which is not to be considered a final goal, but which certainly represents a m a j o r step towards that goal. This is the type of service project by which campus societies j u s t i f y themselves, and we're all f o r more of the same.

On this campus there is so much discussion about what is and w h a t is not a proper use of reason t h a t it seems to me that the whole issue of f r e e inquiry desperately needs clarification. There are, in general, two f o r m s of criteria to which we appeal in discussions concerning the issue of f r e e inquiry. One type of criterion says t h a t there are limits to f r e e inquiry, and the other type says that literally every idea ought to stand the test of critical analysis. W h a t should be the meaning of the criterion that there are limits to f r e e inquiry? Should it mean that we should draw the line in the use of our reason, t h a t p a r t of the reasoning process is good, but the rest of it is bad? Or does the limitness of reason mean that when we have exhausted our powers of reason, we find that reason alone does not give any answers about ultimate values in life? We have to go to f a i t h , transcending but not contradicting reason, to find meaning in life. Let us move now to the second type of criterion to which appeal is made. When we say t h a t every idea should stand the test of critical analysis, are we intending to infer t h a t we should not make any presuppositions in our thinking? Are we trying to uphold the misguided idea that we can do any reasoning at all without the presupposition of some kind of a s t a r t ing point? This is not w h a t the test of critical analysis means. W h a t it does mean is that we should test every idea to see whether it is really a presupposition, and, if not, whether it is a valid conclusion from our presupposition. The purpose of f r e e inquiry is to make the fullest possible use of the g i f t of reason. And the fullest use includes the caution that we not pervert reason by refusing to recognize the limitations which reason itself shows us about its own nature. This analysis does not presume to suggest just what presuppositions we should bring to our f r e e inquiry. Even such presuppositions, for all of their tremendous importance, are not nearly as important as the spirit in which we pursue the whole problem, because it is out of our spirit, in the last analysis, that these presuppositions flow. A reverential attitude, a spirit of humility and love, and a sense of mystery and deep meaning are the basic requisites of f r e e inquiry. This t r u t h cannot be proved. It can only be recognized. Who ever saw a person with these characteristics who was not "growing in wisdom and s t a t u r e " ! And what genius who made a mockery of these values ever made a worthy contribution to mankind! —Sewell Hayes • ••iiiiiji

Dear Editor: Last Sunday evening I visited my d a u g h t e r who is a f r e s h m a n a t the little Dutch College. Since the car was full of goodies and clean clothes f o r the remainder of the school year, I desired a parking place within reasonable distance of the dormitory. Unfortunately, I was not able to secure a place to park anywhere. The entire street was lined with unoccupied cars. 1 was a little baffled as to why the cars but quickly came to the conclusion t h a t undoubtedly Voorhees Lounge was the site of a Sunday night fellowship meeting. You can imagine the surge of pride t h a t rose within me concerning the little Dutch college. Other college and university girls were stalking the streets, carousing and debauching; but my daughter was attending a youth meeting in a clean, healthy, wholesome atmosphere. I parked my car down the street and hurried up the dormitory walk. I had become slightly anxious f o r I had remembered a letter which my d a u g h t e r had written concerning 10 p.m. closing hours. I opened the heavy lounge doors. I didn't believe it. Youth meeting — bah! From every nook to every corner t h a t lovely rose colored room reeked with passion. Unawaringly I jostled a team in a mad Brando embrace. There was no acknowledgment. The sofas and benches were cluttered with rapture-engrossed couples. I went to the desk and inquired as to the whereabouts of my daughter. The desk girl who was as completely oblivious to me as she was to her surroundings continued r e a d i n g . Finally she glanced at a yellow slip which read "out". I was about to leave when I heard a cordial "Hello, Mrs " I turned and saw my daughter's "smeared" roommate. A f t e r informing the desk clerk t h a t she was "in f o r the night" ("through for the night" would have been more appropriate) she turned to me and said. "I suppose you're looking f o r Then upon leaning a little closer she added. "I think she's out on the f r o n t lawn. She likes the out of doors. She's going steady, you know! He's real cute. I smell goodies. You're such a darling! Always baking!" By this time I was broiling. I stalked down the steps and onto the sidewalk. At that moment a bell rang and f r o m the vacant cars alighted additional daters. Up the walk with the crowd sauntered my daughter. "Mother, how nice. Mother, this is Joe." He's going to be a minister." "Hello Joe." Shook, Joe's girl's mother

WUS Reaches $340 At t h e W.A.L. dinner meeting in the Chatternook, before Spring Vacation, the t r e a s u r e r reported that a total of $40.95 was reached f o r WUS. Of this $290.95 was collected, $23.00 was raised f r o m the pennya-minute night, and $27.00 was made a t the p a r t y f o r WUS. World University Service was organized under the direction of the Student Council. Lead by a chairman f r o m the Student Council, the committee was composed by five males and five females chosen by the chairman. Each member of the committee became a chairman or co-chairman of a specific duty. One of the first things done by the committee was to set a goal. This was set a t $500.00. This sum was to be raised by solicitation during a special week. The committee finally agreed that the f r a t e r n i t i e s and sororities were the best groups to use to contact all students. The independents were to be reached later. Thus, the committee expanded to include a member of each f r a t e r n i t y or sorority. When these groups asked f o r an estimate, the committee up a % scale according to the size of the group in order to reach the goal that had been set.

During the E a s t e r vacation I was f o r t u n a t e enough to attend the Ninth Annual Conference of the Association of International Relations Clubs. This conference was especially unique in that it was held in three different cities, respectively, Washington, Philadelphia, and New York. The cross-currents of intensive discussion centered around the general topic, "How Can the U.S. Meet Russia's New Challenge." It was at one of the round-table discussions, as the weakness of the present American foreign policy was being considered, t h a t a student brought up the following question: "Should not the U.S. t r a n s f e r a g r e a t e r portion of its allocations for economic aid to the U.N. Technical Assistance P r o g r a m in view of the immense success of t h a t p r o g r a m . " Some of those present said t h a t the U.S. foreign policy would be more effective if an impartial international organization such as the UN administered its aid. Some maintained that the U.S. should pull out of the U.N. altogether. And others were either silent, noncommittal, or apathetic. I address this present column to those of our number who reflect any of the above attitudes. Many times in evaluating the contribution of the UN to world peace, we get lost in a muddle of partisan and political incomprehensibilities. Very briefly then, I would like to joint out some of the non-political contributions of the UN's peace offensive in the field of Technical Assistance. More technical assistance goes to Asia and the Middle E a s t than to any other p a r t of the world. The following are just some of many projects that the UN and its specialized agencies are undertaking. - India's first D.D.T. f a c t o r y and an antibiotics plant have recently been built. - In Indonesia the modernization of eighty privately owned industries have been undertaken. - A UN hydrographer gave the Pakistan government the necessary assistance to sink well t h a t now supply ten percent of the total w a t e r supply of its capital city, Karachi. - A glass plant capable of producing twelve million square f e e t of window glass annually — enough to fill most of the country's needs — is being built a t Inchon, Korea, with aid valued a t 2.5 million dollars f r o m the U N Korea Reconstruction Agency.

- T h e U N World Health Agency was able to confirm recently the first proven advance in rabies prevention since Pasteur's vaccine came into use seventy years ago. The vaccine was administered to twenty-nine people in a small Iranian village who had been biten by a rabid wolf. The serum proved a success. - Since 1949, the UN Children's Fund has approved aid for one hundred and sixty-five milk and other food p r o c e s s i n g plants throughout Asia and Europe and Latin America as well. Already one hundred and twenty-four Ipuch plants are in full-scale operation, delivering better health to several millions. I could go on enumerating such projects ad infinitum, but let this serve as a concrete realization of the valuable contribution of the UN in the field of technical assistance. The uncommitted people of the world a r e tired of bullet-aid; they seek to raise their living standard so that the very necessities of life might be a reality in the immediate f u t u r e . It would seem t h a t the American t a x p a y e r s ' money could be better spent by the UN in its technical assistance program, than by the many agencies t h a t the U.S. government now employs. The money is not lacking but an effective means of administering it is. —David G. Cassie

Each g r o u p could decide f o r itself whether it wished to give as a unit or leave it up to each individual member. Sibs, Sorosis, Thetas and A.S.A. did not pledge as groups, but left it up to the individual member. The Dorians and Delphis decided to pledge as a group and t h e n have a project to replace the money in their t r e a s u r y . The f r a t e r n i t i e s decided t h a t each member should pledge the amount he chose to give. Independents and * faculty were contacted in person.

Take A f e w days ago one of the members of the college maintenance crew noticed a black object on the roof of the science building. His curiosity was immediately aroused and he proceeded to ascend the fourth flood ladder in the science building to the roof exit. Upon f u r t h e r investigation he discovered that the black object was a telescopic device. He dismissed the m a t t e r as carelessness on the p a r t of the astronomy class and once again descended the ladder. However a f t e r pondering over the discovery he came to the conclusion that the science building roof was rather a precarious site f o r the study of stars. Upon f u r t h e r investigation he was assured by the astronomy p r o f e s s o r that the study of the s t a r s f r o m the science building roof was not only dangerous but absurd. The maintenance man was completely baffled. Evidently the telescope, an instrument of considerable weight, was transported to the roof by masculine hands. But f o r what reason? The telescope was pointed in the direction of the Durfee Hall roof. There certainly could be no motive in centering a telescope on a sun-baked roof. The mystery h a s not been solved. If anyone has any information concerning the telescope please notify the paper immediately and contact the Editor f o r a reward.

Board Passes Men's Curfew At a recent meeting of the administration with the board of trustees it was unanimously decided that there will be definite and enforced closing hours in the new men's dormitory. To preserve a f a i r policy it was also stated that the curfew will be extended to the f r a t e r n i t y houses and private boarding houses as well. The closing hours will be as follows: Sunday through Thursday the doors will be locked at 11 p.m.; 12:30 a.m. will be the deadline on Friday and Saturday. Special consideration will be given to requests f o r late permission. The signing in and out procedure, presently in use in the women's dormitories, will be incorporated into men's dorm routines. The decision was arrived at a f t e r a census taken by chapel monitors. For a full semester's time they counted the number of sleepers in their row. The librarians also helped in the experiment by counting those who slept while supposedly studying, 1st hour in the library. If the enforcement of closing hours does not alleviate the situation, f u r t h e r steps will be taken to establish a lights-out time f o r the men as well.

F or The College Mkiical Center nas announced a gigantic expansion program, due to begin this summer, to improve its present facilities. A source close to the clinic staff, who asked not to be identified by name, said t h a t the reasons f o r the proposed expansion were to take care of the large number of cases of serious illness now treated at the clinic. "Confidentially, things are almost getting out of hand," said the Source. "Present supplies of pills may last only until late May, a f t e r which time we'll have to dig into our backlog of s a s s a f r a s leaves and Indian Skunk Oil." Officials of the clinic kept Mum when asked for a statement. This was not deemed necessary, however, as s p r i n g weather is not expected to come to Holland f o r another eight months "at the most", according to the Railway Express Company, who were f r a n k l y horrified at the very thought. Revolutionary new methods of t r e a t m e n t will make the use of Xray, plaster casts and other currently common medical f a d s unnecessary, according to Our Source. Cheif among these are thirteen new shades and twenty-eight new flavors of pills (produced under license f r o m Howard Johnson's), and oodles of p r e t t y pink slips, complete with places to indicate in advance the days which patients would p r e f e r to miss class on. The new student medical center will specialize in f r a c t u r e s (try our revolutionary new method of treatment) and duodenal ulcers.

Reports fifter back to the Anchor office of mass student demonstrations, as the new student council food-petitions were passed out yesterday. These occurred chiefly in Voorhees, the Juliana Room, and the Terrace Dining Hall. The move, started recently by a couple of defeated student council hopefuls, met with increasing interest as the day progressed. Text of the petitions was not available, but it is understood that they expressed the gratitude of all students to the Dining Hall Manager f o r the delicious, nutritious, piping hot f r e s h cocoa, served three times a week f o r b r e a k f a s t . Some reports indicate that the students also snuck in a request f o r o f t e n e r use of this popular beverage. Typical was the comment of one naive f r e s h m a n girl, caught during the rush at Voorhees to sign the petitions, bound and gagged and brought to the Anchor office for questioning. The girl, who asked to remain anonymous, stated: "I just don't know why they even bother with that nasty old coffee a t all. Everyone knows that coffee is bad f o r your nerves, teeth, gums, and digestion. Besides, many of us like to be wide-awake f o r our early classes, and coffee is just no good for that a t all. Then too,I sort of like cocoa, because my Mommie used to give it to me every day before Kindergarten. You know, I miss my Mommie a lot here, and the cocoa f o r b r e a k f a s t helps a whole lot." Rumor has it t h a t the petitions will be presented to the College Dining Hall Manager early next month, together with a complimentary cauldron of bubbling cocoa for his office.

It has just been disclosed by the M.I.A.A. Planning Committee that girls' basketball games have been scheduled f o r next year just as the boys' games are scheduled. They have arranged the games in such a manner that the girl's and boy's team of one college will play the respective teams of another college; the girls playing in the afternoon and the boys at night as usual. There has already been instances of such games, but they have thus f a r been arranged independently by the Women's Athletic Association of each college. For instance, when Hope played Kalamazoo last season, the W.A.A. at Hope invited the girl's basketball team of Kalamazoo to play a game that same afternoon. The Planning Committee believes that these double team games have worked out so welle that they should be continued on a more definite basis and so they have made out a complete schedule f o r the girls' which corresponds to the boys' schedule. The Planning Committee also feel t h a t this will promote better sportsmanship between the M.I.A.A. colleges. The Administration of Hope College also made a recent disclosure concerning girls' traveling to away games. It was announced that the Cheer Leaders, under the supervision of a faculty member, will be taken to all away games so that they may cheer our boys on to victory. The only stiupulation is that they will not be allowed to trave to games when a overnight trip is required. Otherwise, the Cheer Leaders will be going to all away football and b a s k e t b a l l games. »•





S>W i >v> ] y\ Pco | "Let's go for a swim", may be a year round greeting at Hope College by next year. According to a news bulletin released yesterday Hope may be able to build its own indoor swimming pool. The Danf o r t h Foundation, which previously offered to build a new chapel, has granted Hope $75,000 which has to be equaled by the college. The grant is given on the stipulation that it be used f o r the construction of an indoor swimming pool on Carnegie Field. The building must be completed by December 1956. Thus the college will have to immediately seek out sources f o r the $75,000 which they must add. Contracts will be opened to bidders immediately in order to have the construction completed. A desire which many Hope College students have held may now be realized. As you undoubtedly know there are no facilities in Holland, Michigan f o r swimming in cold weather. With the building of the new pool students and faculty will be able to indulge in their favorite sport all year round.

Speculation has arisen on campus as to the possibility of Hope competing with the other M.I.A.A. colleges which have swimming teams. Albion, Adrian, and Hillsdale presently have teams and there is a possibility of a few more competing. The m a j o r immediate problem is that Hope College must r a i s e $75,000 to be used f o r the construction of the pool. Students can help by talking this up while home on vacation. Let's get the alumni to get in the swimming f u n d so that we can all get in the swim.

Ironmen Lead Hope Women Down Kazoo Hope Diamond Men Dutch Nine Divides MI A A Twin-bill In Tennis Match To Track Victory Adrian Cops Opener, Hope Wins Final Down Ferris Nine On Saturday, April 14, the wo-

Dr. L a r r y Green's trackmen burned up the cinder path as they defeated the Calvin College squad 75-54 in a dual track meet a t the Holland High School track. The flying Dutchmen took twelve first places in the sixteen events. The story can best be explained in the use of the term iron men as it was a small g r o u p of men t h a t picked up the m a j o r i t y of the points. Paul Wiegerink grabbed f o u r firsts in t a k i n g the 100 yard dash, broad jump, t h e low and high hurdles. Jim H i l m e r t won firsts in the high jump, and broad jum p while he took seconds in the shot put, low and high hurdles. Dave Spaan came in first in both the 220 and 440 yard dashes. Finally Herb Widmer took the mile run and came in behind Carroll Bennink in the two mile run. Surprise of the day w a s that F r e s h m a n L a r r y T e r Molen who t h r e w the shot over 41 feet in his first college meet. The decisiveness of the Hope victory can be seen in the f a c t that John De Vries could only compete in the pole vault because of an i n j u r y to the heel of his foot. A f t e r this meet things look fairly optomistic f o r Dr. Green and his squad of iron men.

Coach A1 Timmer's linkmen then opened their M.I.A.A. schedule by losing 8-7 to the Kalamazoo squad. Bill K r a m e r w a s the medalist with a 76 in the J u n i o r College match. The Dutchmen powered to any easy victory as Bill K r a m e r , Ray De Does, Bill Holt, and Joe Martin won their matches. The Kalamazoo match was another story as Hope dropped the close match by only one point. Ray De Does shared medalist honors by coming through with a 79. He was followed very closely by Holt with 80 and K r a m e r with 82. However, Bob Burwitz and Joe Martin had their highest rounds of t h e season with 94 and 99 respectively. Thus Kalamazoo was able to eke out a victory on a day in which the players were harassed by high wind, snow flurries, and near f r e e z i n g temperatures.

Hope and Adrian split in the M.I.A.A. opener's f o r both teams. The Bulldogs took t h e first g a m e 11-9 and the Dutchmen won the final 7-5. Adrian grabbed an 11-2 lead in the opener and then had to hang on to win. A seven run uprising in the eighth inning of this game was Hope's offensive highlight. The

Dutch Storm Back Tie Junior College Hope College and Grand Rapids J u n i o r College battled to a 7-7 tie in a baseball game at Grand Rapids. The g a m e was a wild and wooly a f f a i r as the Dutch jumped off to t 5-1 lead and then had to come f r o m behind to tie the score. Both t e a m s committed eight errors to add to the tension and present the opposition with many opportunities. The J u n i o r College team scored one run in the first ining off s t a r t e r W a y n e Westenbroek. However t h e Dutchmen came back s t r o n g in the second inning as they scored f o u r runs on one hit, two walks, and two infield errors. The big hit was Dave Woodcock's single driving in two runs. Arne Boeve was s a f e on an e r r o r in t h e third inning. Carl De Vree and Gerry Boeve then hit consecutive singles driving a run across the plate giving Hope a 5-1 lead. J u n i o r College came back and scored a run in both the third and f o u r t h innings to narrow the lead to 5-3. However, Dick Ortquist opened the Hope half of the sixth by blasting out a double. Dick scored on an error by the third baseman and Mert VanderLind's long sacrifice fly. J u n i o r College retaliated by scoring one run in the sixth narrowing the m a r g i n to 6-4. Then in the seventh J . C. scored three times to take the lead on a triple, three walks, and a mishandled fly ball by left fielder Jack Kempker. Trailing by one run in the eighth inning, Dave Woodcock led off by hitting a long fly ball which the centerfielder dropped f o r a two base error. Mert VanderLind followed with a smash to shortstop allowing Woodcock to get to third base. Pitcher Bob Andre then uncocked a wild pitch past Bob Thomson and Woody crossed with the tying run. Neither team scored in the remainder of the game. However, the most dramtic play of the g a m e came in the last of the ninth with two men out and the base filled with J u n i o r College players. Jack Kempker raced in and grabbed a sinking line drive to end the ball game. Coach Russ DeVette once again utilized f o u r pitchers. W a y n e Westenbroek, J a c k Kempker, and Mert" VanderLind each hurled two innings while Jim Stout pitched the last three. They combined to strike out ten batters. Dick Ortquist, Carl DeVree, and Gerry Boeve were the h i t t i n g heroes with two hits each. However the t h i n g t h a t h u r t Hope was t h a t twelve r u n n e r s were left on base.

Dutchmen combined t h r e e hits, five walks, and an e r r o r to push across seven runs. J o h n A d a m s supplied the big hit by s m a s h i n g a g r a n d slam home run. Pete Bylenga followed with a double which was misplayed allowing him to score. J a c k Kempker was the s t a r t i n g and losing hurler in the first game. However, he had to retire because of a sore a r m a f t e r pitching only 1% innings having given up five runs including a home run. Mert VanderLind replaced J a c k on the mound f o r the last 6 % innings. The Hope nine committed six e r r o r s in the field p e r m i t t i n g a number of unearned runs and keeping the pitchers in hot w a t e r . However, Adrian slapped out fifteen hits and gained eight walks in pushing across eleven runs. Captain Dick Ortquist greeted the Adrian hurler by blasting a home run to open the second game. Adrian tied the score in the second inning. Then the Dutch combined three singles in the second to take a 2-1 lead. L e f t y W a y n e Westenbroek and Adrian's duel until the sixth inning.

Westenbroek w a s t h e winning pitcher as he pitched b e a u t i f u l ball throughout the contest. His only m a j o r problem came about in the seventh inning when Adrian pushed across f o u r runs as he had control trouble. The entire Hope nine played fine ball in the second g a m e a s they banged out t h i r t e e n hits m d played errorless ball. Individual h i t t i n g heroes were Gerry Boeve, A d a m s , Olson, and Woodcock with f o u r hits each and Ortquist with three hits. In evaluating t h e opening M.I. A.A. doubleheader Coach DeVette was probably disappointed at losing the opener. However, he must have been pleasantly surprised at the twenty-three hits which his men banged out against a t e a m which had already played sixteen games. It a p p e a r s t h a t the Hope nine have their h i t t i n g shoes on this year.
