good demonstration of democracy in action. It was a forceful example of the freedom of expression t h a t has made America the great nation which it now is. The activity on Hope's campus during the past week even surpassed that of a year ago, when the importance of good student government was first being recognized here. Considerable progress has been made in establishing a truly representative student body throughout this year. For this achievement, the officers and members of the 19491950 Student Council deserve praise. A representative S t u d e n t Council has made possible harmonious relationships between Hope administration, faculty, and students and has resulted in student membership on a number of important committees. It is to be hoped t h a t the new Student Council will consolidate these gains and continue this trend of establishing better student government. o

Which Are You - Highbrow, Lowbrow, or Middlebrow? How intelligent are you? Did you ever try measuring your f o r e h e a d ? Is it two inches or five? Well, if you can't determine what your forehead is supposed to indicate, perhaps you can classify yourself in one of the following categories: HIGHBROW or geniuses come first. A college highbrow considers his college t e r m a stepping stone to a higher place rcached a f t e r he has had his name suffixed by a string of abbreviated capital letters earned by painstaking graduate work. The college highbrow may be defined as a student who is totally uninterested in the grading methods of any instructor. He looks down his long nose rather disgustedly a t the classmate who asks the professor about the curve. His disdain of mediocre and pedantic instructors along with his indifference to "College spirit" and the high school antics of his classmates leave him prone to a g r e a t deal of u n j u s t criticism. He likes nothing better than to sit down with colleagues of his own intellectual level and pick a p a r t Freud, Marx, O'Neil, etc. At the other end of the scale we find the college L O W B R O W S . Lowbrows may be distinguished, not necessarily by any degree of intelligence, but by their intention in attending college. This class embraces the student who is wasting his parents' or the government's money. He has no set goal in sight nor does he care for any. His indifference in class and avoidance of any controversial discussion which may overtax his cellophanewrapped g r a y matter, affords him an equilibrium of C's and D's sufficient to keep the allowance coming regularly. To him, college is simply an extension of high school, to be put up with only because the alternative is the common, work-a-day existence of the laborer or a predestined vice-presidency in a business long since earned by a fawning parent. S t r a n g e as it may seem, college

Professor Kimber d i s c u s s e d "General Education" f r o m the point of the particular situation as it was on the Michigan S t a t e Campus; but also in a general way as it existed in all of college education. General e d u c a t i o n is not a watering down of education to mediocrity. It is an answer to the need f o r democratization of education, in t h a t it seeks goals and values t h a t will be equally valid for all. It is an antidote to the extremes of specialization which have brought chaos into American education. In his second thesis he said t h a t general education creates a synthesis t h a t w i l l r e s t o r e the foundations of freedom and Christianity to a confused civilization. Its ultimate end is to save western culture f r o m materialism. Dr. Kimber took the position t h a t religion and theology would have to furnish the basic assumptions upon which general education rests. He is convinced t h a t even state universities will have to come to this conclusion before general education can be made effective.

l o w b r o w s never grow out of the grammar-school name-calling stage. A conscientious middlebrow who expresses his admiration of Wordsworth or Emerson is roundly smirked a t and dubbed a "chara c t e r " or a "teacher's pet," to mention a few of the more acceptable terms. Lowbrows a r e also responsible for such r e m a r k s as " W h a t practical value does all this history h a v e ? " and " W h a t do I need all this English Composition f o r ? " MIDDLEBROW college students can be divided into two sections, the lower and higher middlebrow. The g r e a t majority of this type may be defined as the average American college student, if such a phenomenon is known to exist. Grades, social activity, and a job a f t e r graduation, in t h a t order, are the primary aims of the lower middlebrow. This segment of college personnel sets the almighty sheepskin and graduation with reasonably good grades as his f u t u r e meal ticket. The middlebrow denomination boasts both introverts and extroverts. In conversation the extrovert monopolizes the discussion and has no idea what he is talking about. The introvert, on the other hand, keeps his ideas to himself and has no idea what anyone else is talking about. The upper middlebrow dotes on good instructors, but in his practical optimistic outlook, accepts the chaff with the wheat a s necessary to the pattern of college life. Versatility r a n g i n g from psychology to ping pong is the primary aim of the upper middlebrow, and he is never really convinced t h a t his m a j o r is t h e right choice until the final semester of his g r a d u a t ing year. His interpretation of the a r t s and the classics, though it is often spontaneous and erroneous, is unique in t h a t it is essentially his own. " W h a t ' s t h a t you a s k ? Which category do I belong t o ? " I really couldn't say. Being a college student, I'm prejudiced.


The outgoing Student Council has been very happy to observe through the p a s t week the g r e a t amount of interest stirred and enthusiasm displayed in the campaign for the Council leadership next year. All of the campaigners deserve a word of praise for the vital, competitive spirit shown. The more the student interest can be aroused now, the g r e a t e r will be the interest in the school's government next year. Meanwhile, the present Council has several i m p o r t a n t projects remaining. The question of whether or not to join the National Student Association has been on the agenda f o r quite some time. Louise Loula, chairman of the N.S.A. investigating committee, reports t h a t N.S.A. seems to be a well organized working unit. However, the committee doubts whether or not it could be of much value to our school. The committee does not feel that it would be worthwhile to join unless the value derived from membership would match the dues required f o r joining. The committee is f u r t h e r ing its investigation by talking the project over with Dr. Lubbers and writing letters of inquiry to colleges t h a t a r e members of N.S.A., and colleges t h a t were members and have since dropped out. The Council has recently placed one ping-pong table in the men's room; it hopes to place another in the Commons Room just as soon as it can find another table and obtain the m a t s t h a t a r e on order for the protection of the floor. The Council felt t h a t it could not endorse either of the two nicknames so f a r proposed. The general reaction to both the " F i g h t ing Dutch" and the " F r e e b o o t e r s " has been r a t h e r cool. However, r a t h e r than let the whole issue die, the Council decided to throw out the list of the best twenty-five names submitted asking the student body to determine which five it liked the best. If this does not work, the project will be dropped.

Selections of the persons who will direct the publication of the college paper during the coming year have now been made. Those that have accepted ANCHOR editorial and business staff positions, having served for a period of apprenticeship in putting together this issue, will take their posts with the issue to be ready f o r distribution on May 18. The persons who have been chosen to form the new staff are well qualified to fill their respective positions. The retiring staff members wish their successors the best in journalistic success.

The keynote address, "Education As a National Policy," was given by Harold W. Stokes of Louisiana S t a t e University. Dr. Stokes felt t h a t the nation's schools were the best barometer for measuring our national anxieties. He felt t h a t the seemingly harmless idea t h a t the g r e a t e r the number educated, the g r e a t e r the national welfare, might have the effect of a hidden bomb. He questioned if it were wise f o r education merely to reflect the problems of the time or whether it would not be better for the educational system to direct society in meeting these problems. He gave t o education the task of becoming a leader and not a servant of the state. He stressed t h a t the schools deepest loyalty is to God and the higher t r u t h s , which a r e over and above the work of political planners.

FRATER THINCLADS WIN CROWN Although the 1950 Interfraternity track title was taken by a narrower margin than has characterized the affair f o r several years, the usually potent Fraternal thinclads possessed enough power to outpoint their closest rivals by ten markers to win. The F r a t e r s registered 58% points, while the Independents finished second with a total of 48%. The Cosmopolitans scored 39Mi, the Knickerbockers 29, the Arcadians 25, and the Emersonians 22. The Knicks' star distance runner, Ike Huyser, came through with firsts in the 440, 880, and the mile run to capture individual honors for the meet with a total of 15 points. In the grueling trio of events, Huyser ran the 440 in 58.7, the 880 in 2:31.5, and the mile in 5:21. The number of first place ratings

won by each team was remarkably close with the Independents taking 3% first, the Knicks and the Cosmos 3, the F r a t e r s 2%, the Emmies 2, and the Arcadians l>/s.

GOLFERS WIN FOUR Linkmen Loom As Title Threat The veteran version of the 1950 Hope golf team is off to a rousing start. The squad, under the tutelage of Coach Timmer, has swept over three nonconference opponents and one conference foe. The golfers garnered their first victory April 18 as they mowed down Muskegon JC by a 16% to V/2 margin at the Saugatuck Golf Course. Bill Kloote, MIAA medalist of 1949, led the team with a 78. He was followed by Howie Jalving with a 79; Paul Mulder, 80; Dick Kruizenga, 86; Bob Houtman, 88; and Heinie Visser, 88. The Muskegon team, last year's state champs, suffered from lack of practice because of weather conditions. Edge Hillsdale

Hope Nine Takes Third Win on Jaysee Bobbles Four unearned runs provided Hope with its third baseball victory of the season, a 4-3 decision over Grand Rapids Junior College in a game that went ten innings at Riverview Park. In other recent competition, the Hollanders racked up one win in league action while dropping two contests. The Schouten-men defeated Alma 1 to 0, took a G-4 setback at the hands of Hillsdale, and lost to Kalamazoo 1 to 0.

Against Grand Rapids JC, the Hollanders went hitless until the seventh inning, and were trailing 3 to 0 until the bottom of the eighth when Al VanderKolk douHope won their first MIAA bled and scored on Raider third encounter April 22 w h e n t h e y baseman Stan Levanduski's error. edged Hillsdale 1 0 ^ to 8^4 at the With Hope trailing 3 to 1 in the Saugatuck course.

will be defending the title which it has won for two consecutive years when it takes part in the Adrian meet.


The general answer to the question as to whether " F i g h t i n g Dutch" or "Free Booters" would be the best nickname for Hope athletic squads has been, "You can have 'em both." It seems that the recent nickname contest has resulted in little more than unhappiness for everyone concerned. The majority of students have been unhappy because the contest committee didn't pick a better pair of possible names, and the committee has been unhappy because nobody likes its choices. The straight story is t h a t outside of the usual assortment of lions, panthers, and other over-worked zoological specimens, there wasn't much to choose from. " F r e e Booters" and " F i g h t i n g Dutch" were among the few names that were even worthy of consideration, and if you can think of a better one you should have entered it. Because of a desire to give the student body the final say in the selection of a new nickname, the student council has decided to take about 25 of the best suggestions and ask the students to rate them. The name getting the highest r a t i n g on this vote will be considered for the new moniker of Hope teams. The student council has been more than cooperative throughout the entire procedure of choosing a new name, first in promoting the contest, and secondly in giving the student body a share in the final choice. It seems that the council has done everything in its power to satisfy the students. Whether the final selection of a name will really be something worthwhile or just something else to gripe about is now a question t h a t rests with the student body. The full participation of students in the coming vote should insure the best name being chosen; disinterest will undoubtedly spell failure for the entire drive. So don't gripe — vote! In making such a selection, it might be well to remember that publicity is the factor that can make or break the name. And the chief means of publicity in this case will be through the newspapers. Without the cooperation of the papers and continual use of the name by them, it won't last long. One of the peculiar t r a i t s of the average newspaperman is that he likes things short, especially when he has to fit them into a head or headline. Therein lies the cause of that disease peculiar to all editors — abreviationitis. A complication of this malady finds reporters and editors playing havoc with a name even within the context of a story itself. Rather than overwork a moniker, they kick it around a bit and come up with a dozen expressions, all of which mean the same thing. For example, the Wolverines become the wolves, the Tigers become the Tiges, the Indians become the tribe, and it's hard telling what some of the names suggested f o r Hope would become. It's quite probable, however, that " F i g h t i n g Dutch" wouldn't take long to become just plain "Dutch," the very nickname that the contest was held to find a replacement for. In fact it already has. The Holland Sentinel, rather than wait for an official name, has proceeded to use the term "Fighting Dutch" with the following result: To describe Hope's baseball team in an article on the Grand Rapids JC game, the Sentinel used "Fighting Dutch" in its subhead, and then once again in the story. J u s t plain "Dutch" was used twice, and "Dutchmen" once. Thus, it isn't hard to see t h a t if the original goal of the contest, to get away from the "Dutch" idea, is to be achieved, it will have to be done with something else. What would happen when "Free Booters" lands on a sports desk probably wouldn't be as bad. The man with the pencil would simply knock off " F r e e , " and come up with "Booters." If t h a t ' s still too long, he just picks up his pencil again and he's got "Boots." As f a r as nicknames are concerned, "Boots" or "Booters" should be good. At least it's original, and accomplishes the goal of avoiding the "Dutch" label. It's improbable that anybody's going to associate "Boots" with a group of buccaneers who were authorized by the Dutch government to prey upon Spanish shipping, but who cares? When you read about the Tigers, you don't visualize a jungle setting. It's just a cheaper and different way of saying Detroit. Therefore, it seems to us t h a t "Tree Booters" should be acceptable. If you don't agree, t h a t ' s your privilege; but don't just gripe about it — do something about it. Vote when you're given the chance!
