This announcement brought to mind the relation t h a t Dr. Vennema enjoyed with the College. As president for seven years and presidept emeritus since 1919, Hope has always had a true friend and booster in t h e late Dr. Vennema. The flag was rightly lowered to half mast. Work finished six years ago is not forgotten, progress initiated then must be acknowledged, it is well„that the students stop a moment In their busy day and pay tribute to the man who has served a term as president of Hope College, Tho many of today's students probably never knew Dr. Vennema, the College owes this respect. 1 It Is so different to fall "with l i n boots ulM on.

And he has lived to see it Back in 1885, Thomas A. Edison succeeded iai transmitting electricity at 220 volts for one mile —an achievement and a promise.

In 1881 Edison shipped t o the Paris Exposition his " J u m b o " dynamo—eighth wonder of the world. I t could light 1000 lamps. Now there are G-E generators large enough to supply current for over a million lamps* each with four times the candle-power of the lamp of 1881. The'General Electric Company produces other electrical apparatus which makes it possible t o t r a n s m i t power over great distances. I t has put electricity in seven-league boots. In its laboratories, scientists are now experimenting with voltages ten times as gceat as the highest now in use. If you are interested in learning more about w h a t electricity is doing, write for Reprint No, AR391 containing a complete •et of these advertisements.

The promise was when electricity at two hundred and Angeles with light

fulfilled a few months agOi 220,000 volts was transmitted forty miles to supply Los and power.

Now five billion dollars are invested in electric power plants. A stupendous figure that testifies to the alertness of thousands of college-trained men who have been leaders in e production and use of electric power. ( The electrical era has only dawned. Each year some new machine or discovery makes it possible to apply electricity in unexpected ways. The graduate of today will find electricity directly or indirectly a means for even greater accomplishments, no matter what his calling in life may be.

A hoboes' reunion with a jolly crowd o* hoboes in over-alls, blue shirts, patches, old hats, and even beards, can be made so realistic that one can almost imagine being a real hobo. Julia Huntley's lovely home was open from roof to basement to the merry hobo gathering After a " h a n d - o u t " t h a t was more like a banquet, the hoboes sat around the fire-place for the program. Ethel Harber toasted to the occasion with a clever line of jokes, followed by Kay Tyner. Madge Hooks and Mabel Moeke. a h gh class hobo trio. By the time J e r r y Stryker and Grace Jonker had toasted, t h e hoboes thought they couldn't laugh much more, but there were Alice Caldwell and Pearl Leenhouts the "Bluejay T r a m p s " in a hobo conversation act that was so true to type that their brother t r a m p s roared with laughter. After a "flash" in 'the basement and a song or two, the hoboes disbanded and "hit the rails" for home.
