A long established tradition, this one week in spring offers an opportunity f o r the inhabitants of Michigan to publicize their very special p a r t of the country. For as K. T. Keller, former chairman of Michigan Week stated: "Michigan has more to brag about than any other state in the union." This is the state of the Bridge — the $100 million s t r u c t u r e that is listed among the wonders of the world. This is the s t a t e of dynamic Detroit — the birthplace of automobiles that are driven around the world. This is the state of glistening winters — the dream of countless worshipers of snow and sun. This is the state of sparkling w a t e r s — the paradise of rushing s t r e a m s and peaceful lakes.

Because of the many Holland City churches which are close to the campus, Dr. Buttrick feels t h a t if t h e r e were a campus church there would be a conflict with these Diane Sluyter, President of the Y; Joan Schroeder, Veep of the Student churches which welcome Hope stu- Council; Lorraine Hellenga, President of House Board; J a n Owen, dents to t h e i r services and in the President of WAA and Doreen Torenga, President of W A L begin their participation of choir and Sunday new duties at the Voorhees Day Tea.

Editorials Required Class Attendance? A record which is kept carefully by each student — perhaps even more carefully t h a n the record of his grades — is t h a t of the number of cuts he has in each class. Occasionally a student is seen r u n n i n g to class because he has "used up" a s a f e number of cuts. Some s t u dents hardly ever cut, while others cut indiscriminately. Actually, however, there should not be a limited number of cuts to use up, t h a t is to say, class attendance should not be required! The college bulletin states t h a t : "Class attendance is regarded as an essential part of the educational process at Hope College. The student is expected to benefit by classroom discussions as well as by his daily text assignments. In the classroom he gives his reactions and listens to the reactions of his fellow students. In such an educative process, a student misses an irreplaceable something when he misses class. In accordance with these principles, all absences have an adverse effect upon the teacher's estimate of the student's progress in the course unless made up to the satisfaction of the instructor. The student is to consider himself directly responsible for his absences. It is his responsibility to present an excuse to and to request make-up privileges f r o m his instructor." Actually what is at issue here is the integrity of the student himself. If class attendance is an essential p a r t of the educative process then this is f o r the student himself to determine. It does not seem necessary to require something which is essential to one's education. When a person comes to college he is supposedly interested in securing the best education t h a t is available to him. If he is genuinely interested in using every available channel of learning then he will come to class of his own volition. I f , however, the student does not take advantage if available opportunities then it may be regarded as his loss. In either case it is not the duty of the college to require the student to take advantage of his opportunities. The mature student can determine whether it benefits to attend a particular class or to cut it. The immature " s t u d e n t " who cuts classes indiscriminately and whose grades suffer as a result of it should not be coerced into attending class but permitted to follow the road he has chosen. Actually, there are some courses where the material is presented directly from the book and in which the student can obtain the material from the text on his own without attending class. Some courses a r e primarily drill which can be done alone. There are other courses which consist primarily of lectures. It is false to assume all classes of all courses to have the same educative value. Some courses do not demand the student's attendance as others do.



The Senior Philosophy Inquiring Science-Religion Viewed Reporter By J a n e Tomlinson Question: W h a t do you think of Tulip Time? Vivian Anderson, senior: My first year here I thought it was g r e a t ! My second year it was great, but much too crowded. Now this, my third year in Holland — well, I'll have to wait and see. Sarah Needham, sophomore: I think Tulip Time in itself is a very beautiful t i m e m a n i f e s t i n g the glory of spring. But when the town of Holland becomes filled beyond reason with curious people just to see a tulip festival, I think it becomes ridiculous. It is all right for the visitors and f o r the merchants in town, but it is the time I would like to hibernate. Reporter's N o t e : "The Inquiring Reporter", was originated to feel out student opinion on various m a t t e r s that, in one way or another, had an effect on life at Hope College. On one or two occasions there has been sufficient interest to stimulate enough responses to the poll to establish a good representation of student opinion. In most cases this has not happened. W H Y ? It could be the inappropriateness of the questions used. It could be apathy on the part of the student body. If the questions are at fault, if they are not of immediate interest to you — I would appreciate suggestions. If the problem is apathy on the part of the student body — Let's just call it Spring Fever and forget about it. The Inquiring Reporter r / Hope College Anchor

K r a n n e r t Law Scholarship to Indiana University for next year. During his four years at Hope, Carl, a history major, participated in many campus activities. He was a member of the YMCA, International Relations Club, Chapel and Chancel Choirs, Blue Key (senior men's h o n o r a r y ) . Phi Alpha Theta, (national history honorary f r a t e r n i t y ) and the Student Council. He is also a member of Omicron Kappa Epsilon f r a t e r n i t y and h a s served as their president. Carl also participated in intramural sports and was a member of the varsity football and track teams.

by J a m e s Tan Science and religion can go hand in hand as long as they don't claim authority on each other's territory. Both are concerned with different perspectives of truth. Science is a systematic and f o r mulated knowledge, it can help religion provided it does not try to explain the ultimate being — God cannot be found in scientific data. I think that science should play an important role in liberal a r t s education. By studying science, it enriches our consciousness by making us acquainted with new and valuable ways of thinking so t h a t we may be more aware of the universe we live in and the greatness of our Creator. But we should realize also t h a t tools of scientific method like mathematical equations, logical rules and disciplined observations and so on are just means, not ends.

It is a g r e a t intellectual venture to understand the structures of man and nature. When it comes to the " w h y s " and " w h e r e f o r e s " of one's existence it can only be found in Christ. The I-Thou relationship of everyman with God cannot be found in a methodology which is subject to the law of development itself. There are infinite possibilities beyond the limitations of the human mind. I wonder how o f t e n we underestimate the role of appreciation and creation and entangle ourselves in scientific analysis and criticism. If man can come to know the mighty power and love of the Lord, he would come to the realization of his own finiteness in every field of human knowledge and stand in f r o n t of Him with an open heart sincerely, reverently and even submissively with faith.

Freedom and Southeastern Asia by D. M. Beekman Albion College has presented f o r the p a s t eight years a very interesting and stimulating f o r u m , sponsored by the Speech Department. For one day the auditorium in North Hall serves a miniature United Nations, where representatives f r o m different countries speak on a chosen subject. This year the topic was F R E E D O M and SOUTHE A S T E R N ASIA. Last Thursday, May 7th, Mr. W. Wichers f r o m the Netherlands Information Service here in Holland, who served on the panel, Ron Chandler, Andy Sens and I went to Albion's campus as representatives f r o m Hope College. Credit has to be given to the organizers f o r g a t h e r i n g a number of outstanding men, who, in some way or another, were experts on their topics.

Yearbook Dedicated "In recognition of a man of superb integrity, a man who is a sound scholar, an inspiring teacher, an understanding counselor, a man who has contributed much to bring Hope College along the road to a b r i g h t e r f u t u r e , we, the class of 1960, dedicate this Milestone to Dr. William Vander Lugt. These are the words used by Betty Fell, editor-in-chief of the 1959 Milestone, in the chapel service dedicating this yearbook. Dr. Vander Lugt, a member of the Hope College staff f o r 6 years, received this dedication in chapel on Monday, May 11. He was recognized as "the spokesman of a most intelligent, lucid, and effective philosophy of Christian education.

Also there are times such as just before exams when a student perhaps could use his time more wisely by studying on his own r a t h e r than sit in class. This procedure has already been demonstrated on our campus when the last week before exams is left to the discretion of the student. He is expected to study on his own, but if he is in need of help the instructor is. available. Furthermore, class attendance should not be used as a t h r e a t for a grade. Absences should not be always regarded as the student's desire j u s t to "take the hour off," but as a sign t h a t the instructor might not be presenting the material adequately so t h a t the student feels he may benefit more by studying on his own. Required attendance should not be used as a crutch by the instructor. The best instructors, with t h e most interesting courses and the most interesting and worthwhile presentations have the best attendance. It is time we recognize — as other educational philosophies do — t h a t the student can decide f o r himself how to most effectively derive the g r e a t e s t benefit from his courses. If a student can a t t a i n a good grade and m a s t e r the material, he should be able to decide whether or not class attendance is essential. —C. P.

May 15, 1959

Hope College students in the past two weeks have been seen busily preparing for exams at the Lake and Parks throughout the town.

We heard f o r example Mr. Mohamed Sopiee, First Secretary, Permanent Mission of the Federation of Malaya to the United Nations, speaking f o r the Federation of Malaya, and, f o r the members of the I.R.C. a well known and liked man, Mr. Martin Hutton, Editor of the Malay Mail of Kuala Lumpur, Malaya, supplied some scattered information. «




Or I could get excited about the speech and some dubious expressions of Dr. Ali Sastroamidjojo, P e r m a n e n t Representative to the United Nations f r o m Indonesia. Each speaker presented a view on the country he was familiar with, either due to birth or work. The speeches were well prepared and f o r the most p a r t very flattering f o r the new-born, independent states of South E a s t Asia. * * * * * I noticed the strong, nationalistic sentiment, sometimes apologizing f o r the lack of pace, but always very sure about the great f u t u r e waiting in the damping dawn of the tropics. Compliments and friendly bows were as numerous as the cigarette smokers in f r o n t of Van Raalte between classes. We have to admit t h a t we admire the progress and political victory of the Republic of Vietnam, as discussed by Dr. Weesley Fishel, Coordinator, Vietnam Project, Dep a r t m e n t of . Political Science, Michigan State University, or the stern and determined course the Federation of Malaya is following in the dangerous waters of international politics. *





But the complete neglect of mentioning the f r u i t s of colonization, even as a contrast against the suppression of the horrid things the colonial powers did, bothered us. F o r we have to admit that, in spite of the loudly basooned horrors of colonialism, it provided these countries with the opportunity to become modern and a member of the "world family of nations." Without the hated Caucasian race, s t a r t i n g in the beginning f o r personal profits but then expanding into the education of top men, the building of schools, hospitals, etc., the people of South E a s t Asia would never have attained the place under the sun they have now, regardless of the hoarse cries for freedom and the victims on both sides f o r a cause t h a t could have been settled by sound and calm conferences.

Hope Netters Hope Nine Second in M I A A ; Win Two, Drop Two Finish Season with Wins Over Alma, Kalamazoo by Merwyn Scholten

Hope-Albion • Hope's tennis team ran -, into trouble on May 5th as they journeyed to Albion f o r an MIAA encounter. Albion won the match 5-2 as they swept the doubles and three of the five singles. Norm Hess playing number two downed Don Hines 8-6, 6-0 while Bruce Laverman in the number 4 spot defeated John K r a f f t 6-3, 2-6, 6-2.

Paul Mack (number 1) was stopped by Dale Brubaker 6-3, 6-1 while Marty Elzinga tasted defeat in the number 3 position at the racket of Larry Elkins 6-1, 6-1. Albion's Spencer Holmes topped Roland Van Es 6-3, 6-3 to win the number five spot. In doubles Brubaker-Hines tagged Elzinga-Hess 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 while the Elkins-Krafft combination worked past Laverman-Mack 7-5, 3-6, 6-1. Hope-Hillsdale A f t e r two previous losses to Kalamazoo (6-1) and Albion (5-2), the Dutch net men played host to Hillsdale on the 7th in a rescheduled match and came out on the top side of a 5-2 count. Tom Purdy, playing the Dales' top spot, squeezed out a 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 win over Hope's Paul Mack while Dave Bahlman ousted Hope's Bruce Laverman 6-3, 6-3 in the fourth position. These were the visitors' only wins. Norm Hess, in the second role f o r Hope, breezed p a s t Dick Script e r 6-1, 6-2 followed by Marty Elzinga over Jon H e r r i n g 7-5, 2-6, 6-3 and Doug Johnson over the Dales' Phil Pixley 6-1, 6-4. Doug is showing much promise and will no doubt see more action.
