The past two years have seen the most remarkable surge of creative activity on this campus since Opus first struggled into existence seven years ago. Opus '59 had sixty pages of material and a dozen contributors. Opus '60 had a hundred and four pages and eighteen contributors. And as for this year . . . Selection of material being finished, work on the magazine has progressed to the point where the following information is available. Two two issues will contain a total of 120 pages of material. There were 24 contributors to the winter issue, and the spring issue will see eight new ones in poetry and prose alone. In two years the number of contributors to Opus has almost tripled. Regardless of whether more people are writing, or whether people who write are simply overcoming their caution enough to submit material, this growth is an encouraging sign. Nor is it a growth merely of quantity. The general quality of the work has also soared in the past two years. This is very good indeed; no longer need Opus print the subliterary work that is the bane of every college arts publication — the "nice" junk that must He uocJ when the s u p p l y o f r o a l l y good m a t e r i a l hao been exhausted. Gone, too, are the days when Opus, to avoid printing more filler material, had to rely heavily on the poetry and prose of two or three or four students — as a horrible example of which there is the '59 issue, in which one of the 12 contributions, and the top two accounted for two thirds of the entire issue. The writing talent represented by the recent vastly enlarged and improved Opus is not a talent of mere dilettants. Most of the new names in this year's issues are the names of fairly serious authors and poets, and a remarkable number of them are freshmen and sophomores. What is the significance of these developments f o r the student body as a whole ? 1) The student body has been in desperate need of an articulate voice for the controversies and conflicts that simmer continually just under the boiling point — as witness the honor-system fiasco, the spreading dissatisfaction with the student council, and a host of other minor and major irritations. These authors may be expected within the next few years to provide just such a voice. They have recently organized themselves into a Writer's Workshop amounting to some twenty-odd members, the better to write with. For the sake of improving the quality of their writing, that is. Which brings up the next point. 2) The organization is free of all official ties to any other group on campus, including the administration. It would be foolish to pretend that such independence does not bear with it responsibility. The first responsibility is to itself as a group of the most active creative writers on the campus. But its second responsibility arises directly out of the first: these writers are also students — they do not exist in a vacuum. The mere fact that the organization exists should have an effect on all the student communications on campus — Anchor, WTAS, and to a lesser extent the Milestone. But we believe that the members of the Workshop must, individually, become spokesmen, in the communication facilities of the student body, f o r their less articulate fellow students. Good writing is responsible writing is responsible action. It is many years snce there have been more than three students on this campus at any one time who have been capable of genuinely responsible action towards anything. The Workshop will not have a collective voice; it is a group of individual students, each of whom has a voice and is in the Workshop in order to perfect that voice. We say to the members of the Workshop, you perfect your-writing, use it. Writing on this campus has begun to come of age — that is the upshot of the two developments we have mentioned. And it is time for some articulate voices to come forward and effectively bring into the open some of the too-long-suppressed controversies that are simmering throughout the student body. Only by facing issues squarely can we make or find proper resolutions of them. This is true responsibility, and the writers in our midst have it in their power to provide the initial drive toward such responsibility.

First Volunteers Will Go To Tanganyika College graduates will not dig ditches in the Peace Corps. Nor will they explain Locke to the Bantus. Volunteers will not try to "Americanize" the world, nor will they be selected from the ranks of the "draft dodgers." ' These and other misconceptions about the Peace Corps have taken root and blossomed on some college campuses. Let's look at the truth of the matter. First, the Peace Corps Volunteer will go only where he is asked. He will be asked only where there is a specific job to Ho. The job will bp one the host nation can not do itself. The first Peace Corps Volunteers will go to Tanganyika. There, to improve the lot of the nations many farmers, roads must be built to get their produce to market centers. Tanganyika has an abundance of unskilled labor but the country can only produce two Tanganyikans trained in land survey work in the next five years. Their government has asked the Peace Corps to supply the surveyors, civil engineers and geologists to meet their shortage. President Kennedy has agreed to help and a joint plan has been mapped out. Volunteers with these skills have applied and are now applying to the Peace Corps. In late May the Volunteers will be called for interviews. In June the task force will be selected and intensive training started. At a university the Volunteer will learn about Tanganyika, about its culture, mores, tradition and history. He will study our heritage and democratic institutions. He will begin a physical conditioning program and brush up on his skills in terrain similar to Tanganyika's. Next, according to present plans, the Volunteer will participate in another exhaustive training period at a camp site in a mountain rain forest abroad. Physical and mental conditioning for the rigors of Africa will be stepped up. Lectures on tropical living will be given. Programs designed to develop and test the stamina, self-reliance, adaptability and endurance of the Volunteers are planned. In most Peace Corps projects, the local language will be taught in a stateside university. For this project, however, the Tanganyikan government asked that it be permitted to use its techniques to teach Volunteers Swahili. The first seven weeks in Tanganyika will be spent at a camp on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro where the Volunteer will study Swahili and learn about his work there. After this course. Volunteers, in groups of two and three, will be assigned to provincial capitals which will serve as home base for the safaris into the jungle to plan the needed roads from the isolated native villages to the main highways. In Tanganyika, the Volunteer will receive enough money to live a simple existence, but not exactly at the level of the local populace. The Volunteer will have all his needs — food, housing, clothing and transportation — provided for. The Volunteer

will need no money of his own. He need not fear that his subsistence will provoke hunger or poverty. Provision will be made for recreation, some travel during relief periods, and medical care. The work will be hard. It may be frustrating. It could be dangerous. It certainly will be lonely. But it will also be exciting and rewarding. When he returns after two years service, the Volunteer will receive $75 for every month spent overseas. He will have the services of a Career Planning Board to help continue his career. During his Volunteer service, the Volunteer will be deferred from the draft. It he returns home to a socially useful job, his deferment will continue.

Married couples without children are welcome, provided each does a needed job in the host nation. Liberal arts graduates will be in great demand for a number of needed tasks. Their background, plus Peace Corps training, will qualify them for many jobs. Teachers are in short supply everywhere, and many nations have already indicated they want teachers of English. Anyone requesting full information about the Peace Corps should write for the Peace Corps "Fact Book", Peace Corps, Washington 25, D. C. Volunteer forms for present and future Peace Corps projects are available on campus, through the Congress, or by writing the Peace Corps. .

Herfst to be Holland's Community Ambassador

Some Answers for Emergent Africa

Holland's Community Ambassador for the year is Ann Herfst a 20 year old junior. Her parents are Dutch immigrants who came to America 21 years ago. The family moved to Holland when Ann was eight and she has attended the Holland school system.

by Carol Sikkema Can the challenges presented by Emergent Africa be met? We must be optimistic and meet these new demands with high determinism and firm idealism. The problem is to determine what policies and programs the United States, as leader of the Western World, should adopt in its relations with these new countries. As James Penfield, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State For African Affairs once said; "It is our role to prove to Africans the positive advantages of cooperation with the United States and the West. To do so, we must be prepared to give Emerging Africa both sympathetic support and tangible assistance so that its great potential will be achieved in a manner which will benefit both them and us all." What concrete steps should we take to help these countries off their launching pads?

rewards. This body is suffering from growing pains and we should strive to re-organize the U. N., especially the councils, to reflect political realities. The U. N. is f a r from perfect) but it is an existing instrument and we should give it our loyalty and ideas.

Most of

OUr economic aid should be d i r e c t e d through the United Nations channels, but we must also use our opportunities through unilateral and private economic aid. In all these areas we must try to orientate our aid to the African point of view and attempt to work on a popular basis for the majority of people. Also, the United States must realize their limits in not being able to provide all the necessary men, money, and materials, and thus should welcome aid from the Communistic bloc so as to create economic stability. We should also strive to make our appropriations and tours of duty for longer periods of time, and it might be well for us to initiate aid programs as packages ideas.

There are two other areas

which should be given very serious consideration as it is in education and health projects where wt can best reach the real people with their problems. First, the Amer^an people must be educated concerning Africa, but our chief aim should be to reach the illiterate masses with the truths of knowledge. We can best do this through teacher exchanges, language expansion, branch universities, movies and radio, books in national Iijiguages, and a crash education program through the peace corpi. There is m quicker way to reach a man than through his stomach and we must follow this simple rule in our practical aid. We should devehp constructive programs in both curative and preventive mediche and help the African overcome harmful customs. Hygiene educa^on and sanitation projects would also be constructive steps. The^e steps can only be successful if we have a clear statement of objectives which put the African countries first. We must be optimistic and search for ideas as "fatilism tends to produce what it dreads."

IRC t o H e q r L o m a x Louis E. Lomax, a prom^ent American Negro writer whdrecently returned from an exte^ed trip to Africa, will addr^s the International Relations CI at 4 p.m. Wednesday in Phelpi Hall Conference Room. His subject will be "The Reluctant African," the title of the book of his impressions of the African trip. The entire campus community is invited. Mr. Lomax was graduated from Paine College in Augusta, Ga., and has done graduate work at the American University in Washington and at Yale University. He taught philosophy

for a time at Georgia State College in Savannah. He has been a staff writer f o r the Chicago American and has contributed articles to "The New Leader," "The Nation," "Pageant," "Lift," and "Harpers." Wednesday's address is the ssecond Veventh in the I R C Sb nester program, "Focus on Ai\ca." Club advisor is Dr. Pauto. Fried, Chairman of the Histov Department, and special c o n s u l t s is Rolf B. M. Italiaander, \ s i t i n g Professor in African I^tory and Civilization.

Affairs Committee. She is very active in speech activities, has been on the debate team for two years and represented Hope in national debate, oratory and extemporaneous speaking contests. She has taught swimming for the city of Holland for eight years. During her travels she will write a series of articles for the Holland Evening Sentinel and when she returns next fall she will give speeches to the various clubs and organizations in the city.

Hope is Represented In "Summer Stock"

First, and of utmost importance

the United States must use the resources of the United Nations, but it must be remembered that although this is a very necessary agent, it is not sufficient. The real question before this body is whether the old members will act in unity and the new will accept responsibility. The danger which the United States must be on guard against is further compromise of our principles with Russia concerning the new countries. We must stand up for our rights with courage and accept due criticism but also critize when we observe weaknesses. We must force our opponents into putting the shoe on when it fits and not permit them to pound the table with it! In 1959 the U. N. cost sixty-one cents per capita for each American, and certainly we could increase this expenditure to one dollar and reap many more

fact that she thought both the community of Holland and herself would profit from, and enjoy knowing more about the country. It is supposedly a beautiful country and it has an interesting internal political situation. Ann also felt that as a speech major she would get along well with the talkative Irish. Ann is a member of Sibylline Sorority, Student Council, Hopes representative at the national and state student association meetings, I.R.C., P&M, Secretary of TKA, S.E.A., Cultural

The Community Ambassador plan is sponsored by the Experiment in International Living. Ann has choosen to spend the summer in Ireland, where she will spend one month living as a member of an Irish family and will spend three weeks touring the country with other Irish and American youth. Her choice of Ireland was based on the

WTAS Gets New Broadcasting Console A new broadcasting console is now in operation at WTAS. Built by the Gates Radio Company of Quincy, Illinois, the $1,100.00 console will greatly facilitate broadcasting by the student disc jockeys. It will also enable the radio station to do remote and pre-taped shows. The console replaces a temporary one built last fall to enable WTAS' to go on the air. The console was purchased as part of a long range project for a control system to go with equipment installed last year. WTAS will welcome anyone who cares to stop in at the basement of Kollen Hall and examine the new console.

Students Attend Press Meetings Four Hope College students and one faculty member attended the first annual Michigan Collegiate Press Association Convention. This organizational meeting was held on the Central Michigan University campus, on Saturday, April 29. The Hope delegation, Gerrit Wolf, Paul Lucas, Dale Conklin, Kristin Blank, and Dr. Edward Brand, attended professional seminars and round table discussions concerning the problems and headaches of a college newspaper. A highpoint of the day was the election of Dr. Brand as faculty advisor of the new association. The delegates heard Mr. James Tagg, publisher of the Alma Record and president elect of the Michigan Press Association, speak on the newspaper of the future and the position of importance which the newspaper plays in the community.

Professor Robert L. Smith, instructor in speech at Hope College, and six Hope students will be members of the company of the Huron Playhouse during its thirteenth season of "Summer Stock" from June 25 to August 19. Located on Lake Erie at Huron, Ohio, the Huron Play house is an educational summer theatre, operated as a regular part of the special summer programs of Bowling Green State University by the Department of Speech. Mr. Smith, who is completing his third year on the Hope faculty, will serve as Associate Director of the Playhouse, and his major duties will include directing two plays. The Pleasure of His Company and Smilin' Through, and t e a c h i n g the and as Managing Director of The Holland Community Theatre, course in Acting. Smith holds his B.S. in Education and M.A. degrees from Bowling Graen State University, and he has done additional work at the State University of Iowa and Michigan State University. His theatre experience includes acting, directing and technical work in 130 plays, some of which has been gained at Hope College as designer for Anastasia and director of R. U. R., This will be Mr. Smith's fifth season at Huron. Milton Nieuwsma, a Hope sophomore from Holland, will be the Public Relations Director for the Playhouse during the 1961 season. Nieuwsma, an English major, is presently assistant to Mr. Gerald J. Kruyf Hope's Director of Public Relations. He has also been a reporter for the Sentinel. Another Hollander, via Wales, Leonard Lee, a Hope senior, will be a member of the company of the Huron Playhouse. Mr. Lee, a Speech major, will work toward his M.A. d e g r e e at Bowling Green State University next year as a graduate assistant. He is presently cast in the leading role of Vandergelder in the forthcoming Holland Community Theatre production, The Matchmaker. Last fall he played John in Hope's production of The Potting Shed, and while a student at Northwestern College he portrayed the title role in Cyrano de Bergerac. Lois Bonnema, a senior from Plainfield, Illinois, who recently played a major supporting role

in Hope's production of Royal Gambit will also be at Huron. Miss Bonnema, a senior English major, will also serve as a graduate assistant in the Department of S p e e c h at Bowling Green State University next year as she works toward an M.A. degree. Donna Davis and Nancy Rees, two sophomores from Catskill and Brooklyn, New York, respectively, will be the fourth and fifth Hope' contributions to Huron for the '61 season. Miss Davis is an active member of the Religious Drama Company, and last spring played the lead role in Double Door. Miss Rees is currently portraying the leading role in Hope's production, The Curious Savage, and was also in Double Door. The final Hope student who will be a member of the Huron company is Thomas Oosting, a sophomore from Dayton, Ohio. Mr. Oosting is a student technical assistant in the area of theatre at Hope. He is majoring in speech and is primarily interested in technical theatre and scenic design. The Playhouse company is small, about 30, and normally includes representatives from a dozen or more different colleges and universities. The highly selective student company is afforded a unique educational program which combines production activity of professional standards with classroom work, to give each student an intensive and extensive . t h e a t r e experience. The productions at Huron this summer include the following plays and dates: Tall Story, July 11-15; The Pleasure of His Company, July 18-22; Oklahoma!, July 25-29; You Can't Take It With You, August 1-5; Smilin' Through, August 8-12; Down In The Valley and My Heart's In The Highlands, August 15-19; and a children's play. Once Upon a Clothesline, matinees on August 17-18.

A.D.D. Revises Constitution After another year of serving Hope College sports fans, the Athletic Debt Diggers are making plans for the organization for next year. According to the revised constitution, members will now serve during their sophomore and junior years.

Marti Workman presided with group singing during the intermission, and then the final touch came to the program.
