MAY DAY IN FULL SWING AT 10 A.M. Winter Represents Hope at Interstate Oratorical Contest

LOIS THOMS ACCEPTED AT U. OF EDINBURGH Lois Thorns has recently received her acceptance to study physiology at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. This course of study will equal one year's credit a t Hope and will include histology and biochemistry. In addition, Lois expects to take either social anthropology or psychology. Definite a r r a n g e m e n t s concerning her transportation and living quarters have not been made as yet. Many students have been inquiring about the nature of this school. The University of Edinburgh is best noted f o r its courses in science and medicine. Its classes are not run on the compulsory system. A p r o g r a m of three subjects comprises the maximum load, and the cost is about the same as or less t h a n attending Hope f o r one year.

and we invite disagreement with them. We are not trying to force our opinions on anyone. As we see it, our one editorial mission is to cause our readers to think about what we say.

Summer Well Spent American students in Europe are no rarity these days. There are countless opportunities abroad for college people at reasonable rates. These involve a variety of systems; junior year in Europe, summer study and travel, post-grad study. One of our professors has given this project his consideration. More than this, he has contacted resources and made possible the summer European tour and study for Hope students, with an extension at the University of Vienna. The number of students who have been taking part in this program is his gratifying reward.

Austrian Profs Mea n Study-Not Just Fun At Vienna University

Note: In the past two weeks the ANCHOR has received a bevy oj anonymous letters and other comments, commenting both pro and con on particularly controversial campus activities. Once again, we must quote from ANCHOR policy, which states, 'We invite letters to the editor, which we will print if the letter does not violate good taste and ij space permits." However, these letters must be validated by the writer s signature. Due to space limitations, letters should be concise and will be accepted first from Hope students and I acuity. —Ed.

Outstanding scholars will augment the Hope College faculty in Vienna Dr. Carl Nemeth, 31 years old, with a doctorate in musicology from the University of Vienna, will teach the course in Music Literature of the Classic and Romantic Period. Mrs. Esther Snow of the Hope College faculty will assist him in the planning, testing and grading for the course. Dr. Nemeth is the author of numerous articles and book reviews and has been very active as a music critic. He published the German translation of Dika Newlin's book Bruckner-Mahler-Schoenberg and has just completed a book on the Austrian composer Franz Schmidt. Dr. Nemeth also has considerable experience as an active musician. He served as Assistant conductor for the Vienna Tonkuenstler Orchestra, as guest conductor of the Municipal Theater in Fiume, Yugoslavia, and as choir director in Vienna. Since 1953 he has been associated with the University of Vienna and the Institute for European Studies, where he lectures in English. Dr. Richard Sickinger is also 31 years old, and received his doctorate in modern history from the

University of Vienna in 1951. He will teach the course in the History of Europe since 1918 and will coordinate the material various visiting experts or statesmen may present in their lectures. Dr. Paul Fried of the Hope College faculty will also take part in the planning, testing, and grading for the course. Upon completion of his graduate training Dr. Sickinger was assigned to a research project in the field of Austrian political history which was followed by a Fulbright award for study and research in the United States. During 19531954 Dr. Sickinger worked at Yale University and in Washington, D. C., on a history of the U.S. Civil Service. The following year he was chosen to represent Austria at the College of Europe in Bruges, Belgium where he did post-graduate work in the field of interEuropean diplomatic history. Since 1955 Dr. Sickinger has been on the editorial staff of Historical Abstracts and a member of the faculty of the Institute of European Studies. Plans f o r the study-tour through western Europe, which will precede the summer session, as well as f o r the many other technical details connected with the Hope College Summer School project were worked out by Dr. Fried in close cooperation with Mr. Paul F. Koutny, the director of the Institute f o r European Studies. Mr. Koutny is a brilliant young Austrian who, while still an exchange student in the United States, conceived the idea of providing an opportunity f o r American undergraduate students to spend a year in Vienna, studying European art, music, history, literature and philosophy. The result was the establishment of the Institute of Eureopean Studies, affiliated with the University of Vienna, where specially selected professors of the University deliver the lectures in their field in English.

Hitch Your Wagon To A Star No one can achieve perfection. Is this thought particularly frustrating? Strive for perfection. Set your goal at nothing less,— yes, but it is unattainable. Actually, for what less can we strive? End results are never as important as aspiration or purpose or method. Valid, high aspiration can hardly help but produce worthwhile achievements. These accomplishments will come within sight of the ultimate goal, will be satisfying, and will provide motivation for continued advancement. Aim high, but do not desire perfection. For, perfection is finality, and finality, death.

Kleinheksel instructing Chem. Students — p h o t o by Ambellos

Kleinheksel Sees Science Potential

These conventions, b i a n n u a l meetings of the American Chemical Society, have become increasingly important. This spring there were nearly six thousand delegates — chemists and chemical engineers f r o m all over the United S t a t e s and even abroad. Twenty hotels were involved and over fourteen hundred papers were given. N a t urally unable to hear them all. Dr. Kleinheksel chose to hear only those papers which were about inorganic chemistry, qualitative and quantitative analysis, and chemical education.
