Hope College, Holland, Michigan

'64-'65 Chapel System Revised To Include Assembly Period "During the past few weeks there has been a feeling on the part of the students and facu 1 ty, especiaPy the studen f s. that the college should get together as a family to hear m e m b e r s of the college and outside sneakers at least once a week." stated Bruce Neekers. l%4-65 Student Senate pres : dent. in announcing a change in the weekly schedule for next year. The new schedu 1 e will have an assembly between second and third hours on Wednesdays, The first two classes will be shortened, followed by the assembly and then shortened th-rd and fourth hours. "This will not be a free hour for students." Neckers said. "Att e n d a n t will be opt ; onal. but we encourage everyone to attend. We're aiming for 100% attendance.

Since this is a liberal arts college, we're goin to try to develop the student in a broader aspect than before." With this aim, various groups on c a m p u s will be trying to engage nationally known speakers with a m e s s a g e of interest to the campus at large. Also during this time will be the po^s'bility of presenting student recitals. Spiritual Life We rt k will be orrrtted from the calendar and will be s u b s f ; t u t e d by various religious speakers coming to the c a m p u s speaking one or two days in chanel and then in the ass^mb 1 y as well. Since the Wednesday assembly will rep 1 ace chapel on that day. the voluntary Friday chanel will be eliminated and students w/11 si^n up for a Monday-Friday or Tuesday-Thursday sequence.

by John Mulder Before the graduation of the Chief Justice of the Student Court, Dick VanderBorgh, he and next y e a r ' s Chief Justice, Paul Bast, met to look at the past year and the f u t u r e of the Student Court. Both agreed that the Court had gre t potential for next year and Chief Justice Bast had a few promises to make. Bast said. "Next y e a r we hope to have added interest in the Court on the part of the student body. First we want them to know our stand on important issues. All decisions and the Court's reasoning behind them will be m a d e public. We will also try to expose the minority view points." VanderBorgh stated, "This controversy between communication and the shielding of individuals is our big problem. The campus has the right to be i n f o r m e d . " Bast took exception to this and said. "1 don't think they have the right, but they should know in order to keep a good relationship between the Court and the ctudent body. Our effectiveness comes from the fact that we are close to the situation and rmust still stand in judgement of it. In order for the court to be effective, the students will have to know what we're doing and be behind it." The publication of decisions next year will be a d e p a r t u r e from the practice of the Court this past year. Early in the y e a r the Court released the decisions of the Court with the n a m e s of the students involved. Then in an about-face the justices decided that this was unfair to the individual concerned and that he ought to be protected. Various m e a n s of releasing the decisions w e r e discussed. Bast suggested the possibility of a column in the anchor, written by one of the justices or a court reporter. Simp'y posting the decisions was another possibility. N a m e s will be withheld, however. One of the most troublesome problems for the Court this y e a r has punishments. Work assignm e n t s on the grounds of the school were usually given out, but these proved to be ineffective because some of the punished never showed up for their work. What did the Court propose to do about this?

Universities Confer Doctorates On Professors Jekel, Van Eyl Two faculty m e m b e r s , Mr. Eugene Jekel. assistant professor of chemistry and Mr. Ph lip Van Eyl, assistant professor of psychology, have c o m p e t e d their r e q u i r e m e n t s for the Ph.D. degree. J e k e ! will receive his doctorate from Purdue University, West Lafayette. Ind., at c o m m e n c e m e n t exercises on May 31 to be held in the Purdue H i l of Music. Jekel specialized in the area of inorganic chemistry. The title of his dissertation is " T h e Heat Capacities of Some Electrolyte Solutions at High T e m p e r a t u r e s . " He h a s been a m e m b e r of the Hope faculty since 1955 and attended Purdue on a leave of absence basis from 1961 to 1963. Jekel received his B.A. from Hope in 1952 and his M.S. f r o m Purdue in 1955. Dr. Jekel will servie as director of the National Science Foundation S u m m e r Institute for high school teachers of second y e a r and advanced placement chemistry to

be held on c a m p u s this surruner from June 22 - August 21. Van Eyl received his Ph.D in experimental psychology on May 8 from the Claremont G r a d u a t e School and University Center, Claremont. Calif. The title of Van Eyl's dissertation is "The Effects of Location Stimuli, Perceptual Heading Stimuli and Suggestability on the Apparent Median P l a n e " which was an experiment to test a theory in perception and to evaluate this theory. V n Eyl used Hope students as subjects for his experiment which was conducted during the 1959-60 school year. He also received his M a s t e r ' s degree in experimental psychology from Claremont in 1958 basing his thesis in the a r e a of learning theory. Van Eyl graduated from Hope in 1955 and returned to his Alma Mater in 1959 as an instructor of psychology.

USED BOOKS We will be buying back first semester texts from now on as fast as we get confirmation on fall adoptions.



According to Bast, "This is one of the biggest problems we face. The objectives of the punishment is to rehabilitate the individual and to prevent further occurrence of the violation." One of the justices on this y e a r ' s Court, Herb Tillema was also asked about this problem. Shaking his head, he said. "I don't know. 1 just don't know." VanderBorgh said, "It is a real problem. The m a i n t e n i n c e crew has to help witii the administering of the punishment and this is a real inconvenience for t h e m . " In spite of the problems which confront them. Bast and VanderBorgh were both optimistic about next y e a r . "The steps we have taken will be helpful, 1 think. I a m very optimistic about what can be done," VanderBorgh said. "This rnst yer.r we have struck out into new a r e a s . " Bast looked at this year and then ahead to next and said, "The Court has been trying out its wings this y e a r . Next year we will t r y to anticipate p r o b ' e m s so that we will be able to handle them better.

But w e ' r e going to m a k e mistakes. The Dean realizes this and so do we. We hope the student body realizes this too. One of our main aims next year will be to convince the student body that the Court is not a puppet of the administration." Bast went on to say that the Court was restricted by the administration to a certain degree. "We a r e still at the m e r c y of the administration in a way. If we refuse to t a k e a case, they will t a k e it." VanderBorgh c o m m e n t e d on the advantage t h a t the Court has in that they know the limits of their power. "One strength of the Court," he said, " i s its sense of power and the knowledge of what it has to do with it." The responsibility for using this power next year will lie primarily with Chief Justice Paul Bast. He will have an inexperienced Court under him with the exception of Kathleen Verduin. The other Court m e m b e r s a r e Mary Ellen Bridger, Marilyn Hoffman, John Simons, Dennis Sturgis and Bob White.

Barry Goldwater is not noted for paying p a r t i c u l a r attention to political normality, but his phenomenal rise in the past few weeks defies all po'i'icai laws. He is trailing badly in public opinion polls, running a poor third to Lodge and Nixon. Yet he a p p e a r s to have all but canturerl the Republican Presidential nomination — a victory in (he California p r i m a r y will put him within inches — by wrapping up delegate votes. Strangely enough. Goldw^ter's delegate strength is largely derived from a r e a s where history has shown that it's almost impossible for a Republican to win. Of the 550 votes that Goldwater is expected to have on the first ballot about 300 come from 13 Southern states. Much has been said to the effect that Goldwater can c r r y a solid chunk of the South, but the fact still r e m a i n s that Johnson .is a Southerner and has much m o r e appeal than Kennedy might have had. Besides, there still r e m a i n s a strong possibilitv that unpledged electors will be elected in several of these states and this will lend to hurt the more conservative of the two Presidential candidates. The reason for this, of course, is that conservative southern Repubficans all favor Goldwater. Unfortunately. Republicans in the South a r e very r ar e, so in effect a sizeable chunk of the Arizona Senator's support comes f r o m a r e a s where there are very fewRepublicans. All of this speaks to a g r e a t problem that exists in our political system. The will of the people is often ignored in the selection of each p a r t y ' s Presidential and Vice-

Presidential candidates. Many of the professional politicians within the Republican party a r e rock hard conservatives of the Goldwater line who sometimes ignore the will of a majority of the rank and file m e m b e r s of their party. A perfect e x a m p l e of professional irresponsibility was shown by Senator Clyde Geerlings of Holland when he renounced Governor Romney and his colleagues in the Michigan legislature. He is one who finds himself in opposition to most of his party, yet is a powerful figure in the determination of the p a r t y ' s stand in the legislature. Such things go on at the national level also, with party policy and candidates being determined by professionals, some of whom are at odds with (he majority feeling within (heir own party. Both (he m a j o r par(ies do this. Mr. Johnson's running m a t e will not even be chosen by the convention. in all likelihood, but by the current President himself. Obviously there is a need for the change in the present system. One idea would have convention delegates picked from each Con-

Still, if Goldwater is nominated. American conservatives will have the long-awaited and much deserved chance to test their populartiy at the polls. In this sense the present situation is good — the conservative wing of the p a r t y , long overruled by those who they claim favor a " m e - t o o " policy, will at last h a v e a c h a n c e to put their philosophy on the line and have it judged by the e l e c t o r a t e .

Profs To A rrive and Leave Announcement of t h r e e more new m e m b e r s of the faculty beginning in the fall h a s been m a d e by Dr. William Vander Lugt, Dean of the Faculty. Coming to Hope f r o m E u g e n e , Ore., as an instructor in English will be Mr. R. Dirk J e l l e m a . Jellem a , a native of Grand Rapids, Mich., received his A.B. in 1960 f r o m Calvin College and has attended the University of Oregon and Michigan Sate University. At present he is a candidate for his M.F.A. degree in English at the University of Oregon. His thesis is a novel, as yet untitled. A native of Hull, la., Mr. Robert Wegter will join the faculty as an instructor in d r a m a , to replace Mr. .Divid Karsten, who is leaving at the end of this

semester. Wegter received his B.A. d e g r e e from Central College in 1962 and has been at Union Theological Seminary in New York for t h e p a s t two y e a r s working toward his M.R.E. degree. The new d r a m a instructor h a s been a director of d r a m a in the educational p r o g r a m at the Methodist Church in Westfield, N.J., and also a soloist for the Baptist Church in Pella, la., while in und e r g r a d u a t e school. Mr. J a m e s Tallis will be an assistant professor of music beginning in September. He received his B.M. in 1954 from the E a s t m a n School of Music of the University of Rochester and h a s taught music at Hastings College, Hastings, Neb. At the present t i m e he is study-

Russian Religion Revives In Literature, Attitudes A significant change in the Russian's att tude towards religion h a s taken place in the las f five y e i r s , according to Dr. H e r b e r t Hines, professor of Russian and a u t h n r t y on Russian l i t e r a t u r e and culture. In 1958. whPe on one of his tour extensive tours of Russia, Hines was curtly told by In + ourist, the Russian Travel Bureau, that on 1 y a few o'H people occasionally went to church. On a r e t u r n visit last s u m m e r , howpver. H : nes found the people talking free 1 y about relig'on and speaking uncritically of the church. This obvious r e v e r s e in attitude was il 1 ustrated when, visiting a Kremlin m u s e u m which was a Greek Orthodox Church until 1920, Hin^s witnessed people bowing and crossing themselves b e f o r e the spot wbprp four decades ago the altar stood. Hines h a s also noted this rec u r r e n c e of respect and tolerance of relig : ous views in recent Russian and Communist literature. What m a k e s this Russian shift in reMgious t o ' e r a n ^ e s : gnificant is the fact that forty y ^ a r s ago the c o m m u n i s t s predicted the ter-

mination of religion by 1970. In 1920 the Communists began a public propaganda campaign against religion. E d u c a t o r s explained to their students that religion was not n e c t a r y . Seventy percent of Russia's churches were e : t h e r destroyed or closed. Furtherm ore, anyone who aspired to leadership in the Communist P a r t y was forbidden to be associated with any church. Today the Baotist Church of Russia c 1 aims 600.00 m e m b e r s , the Greek Orthodox Church is strong and Moslems overflow their mosques. ahcprv^ + inns H'ne^ m a d e last s u m m e r were that Russian stores had more consumer goods and the people w e r e better dressed. In 19^3 more Russians owned automob'les. but. Hines learned, the c a r s wer^ purchased more as status sym!bo1s than for everyday use. On his 19*0 Russian tour Hines noticed more enthns : asm for education than he h^d se o n before. That year educated women were encouraged to studv medicine so th^t as m a n v e d n c a M men as possible would be available to stu^y the pure sc'ences.

While at Hope, Tallis will also serve as the college organist. Dr. Leslie R. Beach from Bowling Green State University will join the Hope psychology staff next fall. Dr. Beach will teach the Psychology of P e r s o n a l i s and Behavior and Social P s y c h o ^ g y . These courses will be taught twice a year, thus relieving the present staff of over-large classes. A native of Michigan, Dr. Beach earned his B.A. degree f r o m Houghton College, New York, his M.Ed, from Wayne State University and his Ph.D from the University of Michigan. In addition, he served in the U S Navy during World War II and the Korean conflict. His teaching experience includes eight y e a r s of teaching courses in psychology and h u m a n relations at General Motors Institute, Flint, Mich «even y e a r s as Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of Institutional R e s e a r c h at Whitworth College, Spokane, Wa*b a^d two v e a r s as Associate Professor in Educational Psycho 1 ogy at Bowling Green State University. Ohio. iFight m e m b e r s of the faculty will be leaving Hope at the end of the s e m e s t e r . Those retiring a r e : Mr. Clarence Kleis. professor of physics and c h a i r m a n of the dep a r t m e n t ; Mr. G a r r e t t VanderBorgh, professor of education and c h a i r m a n of the d e p a r t m e n t ; and Dr. Gerrit Van Zyl, professor of chemistry and c h a i r m a n of the dep a r t m e n t . All t h r e e professors a r e Hope College g r a d u a t e s and both Van Zyl and Vander Borgh h a v e been teaching at Hope since 1923; Kleis has been h e r e since 1921.

Dr. Anthony Kooiker, professor of music, I r s been granted a y e a r ' s leave of absence to be a guest music lecturer at Haverford College. Haverford, Pa., beginning in the fall s e m e s t e r . Kooiker will be lecturing nine hours a week in music theory and composition, but will not be giving piano lessons. Kooiker stated that he wanted this leave of absence so that he "will be able to practice the piano and will h a v e sufficient time to build up a repe r t o r i e . " When he returns to Hope in the fall of 1965 he will probably be presenting s e v e r a l recitals.

Brigadoon Rated Good Show by Alan Jones Most a m a t e u r theatrical groups operate under ponderous handicaps—Hope's P a l e t t e and Masque is no except on. Aside from the usual h a r a s s m e n t s of a lack of adequate facilities, limited budgets and a scarcity of trained personnel. there a r e two other serious disadvantages which serve as a constant challenge to the ingenuity and creativity of an a m a t e u r theatre. The most obvious is the relative unavailability of original material. Because the opportunity to produce an original full length work is rarely present, the group must utilize works that have elsewhere beon produced, successfully or otherw : se and rely on its own spontanei'y for the o a r t ' c n l a r work. The second and perhaps most stringent c h a ^ e n g e exists in the neepssi f y to work with — hence, often around—second rate scrints: those loosely padded with maudlin, trite and generally unexciting subject matter. Yet. P a l e t t e and Masque, under the expert, not-so-often-gentle-but-

ever-so-firm hand of Mr. David Karsten. director, has nobly met its challenges with a sound production of Lerner and I^oewe's " B r i g a d o o n . " Fortunately, it is not in our province to question why a musical show was chosen as the y e a r ' s final production or why this work in particular w a s selected. We can on'y say that in presenting this work. P&M has demonstrated the qualit'es of creativity. inventiveness and esprit de corps which has so characterized the productions this year. It is unfortunate, however, that due to newspaper deadi : nes the play had to be seen during its final rehearsal instead of on a regular production ni'Zht. There is something a bit disconcerting about the inevitable stops, changes and interruptions which occur during a r e h e a r s a l , especially the one preceding the performance. Yet even am-'dst the distractions a basic cohesiveness and unity w e r e strongly evident. But the production was not without its Paws and unfinished D 1 aces; often the chorus b e c a m e disaster-


BRIGADOON — Fiona (Kathy Lenel) listens a bit dubiously as Tommy Albright (Douglas McCouilough) invites her out to the •'Heather on the Hill."

Wombwell's Final View Sees Hope as 'Challenge by Thomas Wombwell Hope CoPege exists not to be chaMenged. It exists to challenge. Out of my four years e x p e r e n c e as a Hope studont. this idea stands as the most significant for expressing that experience. Who of us. even the freshmen, has not. at one time or other, comnlain^d about, the c'osin® hours, the either 'snap' or utterly : mDossible courses and the all too obvious discrepancy between what peon'e say about their religion and how they live it. True. th o se things exist on the campus. The acute rrrnd will recognize and challenge them. But it is the uneducated mind that coa<=es in its dynamic with the c h a l ' e n g ^ g . The social, academic and religious factors in the Hope Co'lege educational experience. w h n n seen from a pron«r oer^ne^tive. s e r v e as a real chaMenge. The chal'enge is f'rst to become a w a r e of •he world, however limited, in which on^ live*?, then to e x a m i n e and undprs'and it as wHi as oo^sible and finally ro emulate the good and accommodate or alter the def cient aspects of it. On the s o ^ a l level, the college has some definite policies, such as clowns hours and no drinking. As offensive as t h ^ e iimitat : ons may be. m o r e ' y c h a ^ e n g i n ? th^m. i.e. grumbling and complaining, wi'l achieve noth : ng but a bitter ta^te in the mouth. These limitations, however, serve as ' a d^f'nite chaPenge. Given a c ^ a ^ y . though not too narrowly, defined soc : al context, the student mu^t d i ^ o v e r the a d v a n t a g e for productivity and well beme 'md the disadvantages invo'ved. When these a r e under^oo'* c«n wo-k "iore efficiently and offer suggestions 'n those a r e a s where the best is not

ously dissonant; the actors' att e m p t s at Scottish b u r r s often clouded their diction and their lines often b e c a m e muddled and indistinct. Yet, because of the skillful staging of director Karsten and the musical's well-timed precision. "Brigadoon" achieves a quality of wholeness and solidity that makes it a worthy s t a g e presentation. Contributing strongly to this feeling of cohesiveness in the production are the m a n y subtle but effective technical elements of the play. The lighting, for e x a m p l e , is perhaps the most obvious. Under the capable hand of Bob Hecht. it compliments the carefully designed sets (by Bob Dunton) so as to produce m a n y s t r k i n g l y visual effects during the course of the show.

Hope College m a y in part be described as a place where people a r e fairly articulate about the Christian faith—its meaning and call. Yet th s understanding is not always realized in actions and attitudes. The student may then chal^ n g e the school as it fosters this religion. Or he may me o t the challenge offered to understand the denendence of his efforts and achievements for good on the gird:na and sustaining hand of God the Father. A Hope College education, then, offers the student a social, academic and religious challenge. The challenge does not end. of course, with the end of the school year or w th the A B. degree. This is because to live effectively in society, to meet, establish and achieve requirements and to be aware of one's human dependence—this chalVnge of life is oerpetuated by l : fe. The mark of the educated man is his rea'izaMon of this challenge, the way he meets it and the vitality which he brings to the effort.


Worthy of special note also is the costuming for which R. L. F r r c h t i k e s the kudoes. The rich plaid ki 1 ts nnd tar tans of the Brigadoon hi^hlanders are nu : te artfuly and convincin?iv created as were the m a n y other costumes involved. Wi f h such excellent technical comnliments it is no wonder that the cast and chorus of Brigadoon. fuMv regaled, comnrise such a so , : d and effective c o m m n y . The story of " B r i g a d o o n " is as simole and. to some, as enchantins: as a fairy tale — in fact it cou'd not pass for any thin* else. Natnra 1 lv. as in mo c t tales, boy meots ciri qnd they fall in love— p k e 0 T^erp pre gq U^'al the other a b o r t e d counles. the antneonist and even a w e d d ' n g and a funeral This is aP emhpiiiched by <:ome hardv chorus n u m b e r s and a course of solos and dnpts. To this reviewer, however, this is not rneat of the whole ^how. In fact, it has li'tle — if not the lea^t — to do with the excitement of the everv'n?. The excitement of the nrodMCf:on lies in the snirit. the verve and the nre^'cion of a we1! cvganiTed and artfnllv directed comnanv. This is P ^ M ' s answer to its challenge—"a good show."

Last Chance

clearly being realized. Academically, the student will find courses and teachers who either lack inspiration or communicative ability, or establish requirements seemingly impossible to meet. But it is manifestly the greatest loss of intellectual integ rity to allow either situation as an excuse for anything but one's best effort. If a course makes no dem a n d s . it is the s n i d e n f , s responsib lity to read and think on past it. Being able to m a k e the most of the least is a valuable quality to dev e ^ p . On the other hand, as in difficult courses, the greatest results in life often come in conscient ously attempting to meet impossible demands.


/ -'L by Donald Kardux I don't have space or time in which to try to be subtle. Symbolism is thrown to the winds This is my last column. I have been here four y e a r s and I've heard my s h a r e of the thoughts about this c a m p u s . These thoughts have ranged f r o m , " a beautiful center for Christian fellowship and learning" to " a n organization which preaches Christian love and behaves with a consistant inconsistency of hate, distrust and a dozen other emotions." I have at different times agreed with each of these ideas, but now I really believe that Hope College is not one thing, either completely good or comp'etely bad. It is a collection of individuals and it is the worth of these individuals which de f ermines the worth of the college. A few of these worthy indiv : duals are invo'ved in the administraMon of the college, most a r e teachers and some a r e students. As you sit in Chapel, Lecture Hall, The Smoker. Phelps Lounge or while walking through the P i n e Grove on a w a r m spring evening, take everything you hear with a grain of salt. I have found that I must do so and one of m y reasons is that some of the most pious sounding people on this c a m p u s a r e the most impious, nauseating and dangerous people I have ever met. Their sweet concern turns to something else with the test of quest : ons and the honest refusal of their pat r e a d y - m a d e answers, wh ; le some of the most impious sounding and seemingly disinter-

ested people on this c a m p u s a r e in reality the most kind and truly concerned people I have ever met. Another thing: I swear, over half of the problems on this c a m p u s are caused because the people involved a r e too bull-headed to eventry to understand the reasons for the actions of someone else. I realize that all that I have written you have known for some time, but you haven't done anything about it. Well. I feel better. I could write on for hours—days even — but I think you've had enough. The Sandpiper has m a d e his last t r a c k s on the pages of the anchor. It's been fun. I like grubs. Do you know where I can find some good ones? by David Von Ins I was sitting in Bunte's drinking oolong tea, trying to get away from p^nty raid discussions. I had heard them all day. Smithers c a m e in. I figured my best plan would be hide my face behind my cup of oolong tea. J u s t in time I rem e m b e r e d that Smithers whapped me on the back the last t i m e I hid behind my oolong tea. Valiant as the S p a r t a n s at Thermopylae I set down m y oolong and faced him. "W nna talk about the panty r a i d ? " I asked. " N o " he said, "How's the oolong?" " I t ' s O r a n g e Pekoe," I lied. "Did you h e a r about the trouble in the biology d e p a r t m e n t ? " Smithers asked. (I had long suspected t h a t the biology d e p a r t m e n t was full of m a d m e n . This suspicion began

when I noticed that the trees behind the science building were surrounded with brick pits. A dog approaching the tree is certain to fall into the pit and become a victim of vivisection. Only last week a biology instructor was arrested for fish poaching in local waters. Naturally when Smithers mentioned the biology d e p a r t m e n t I was prepared for the worst.) "Tell m e about it, Smithers," I said. " I ' m prepared for the w o r s t . " "If you r e m e m b e r , " said Smithers, " t h e biology people m a d e a very poor showing in the F i n e Arts Festival. I've talked to various faculty m e m b e r s about this and they feel that the science people just don't produce. They felt they m u s t do something soon. Professors were laughing at them in the faculty lounge. "So they decided to put on a big show — a wedding of two amoeba. They set u p T.V. screens all over the buliding.

Flying Dutch Score 15-3 In Match With Hornets by James Mace Hope's baseball squad continued its winning ways with a sweep of a doubleheader against Adrian last S a t u r d a y at Adrian. A 16 hit attack by the Dutch in the first g a m e allowed starting pitcher Joe Bosworth to coast to victory. Ten of the 16 hits c a m e in the third and fourth innings when Hope scored ten of their 15 runs as the Dutch r a n up a 15-3 victory. In the big third inning the Dutch jumped on starting pitcher Reel for four singles followed by Art K r a m e r ' s triple, which capped off the d a m a g e . Four singles ignited the rally in the fourth inning, also and Wayne Cott's double closed out the o n s h u g h t . Senior rightfielder Ron Venhuizen had three h : ts for the g a m e including a double, whPe catcher Art K r a m e r also had three base knocks including his big triple. Three players, Clare Van Wieren, Rog Kroodsma and Skip Nienhuis, each had two hits, including a triple for Van Wieren and a double for Kroodsma. Centerfielder Glenn Van Wieren h r d the other extra b a s e hit for the Dutch, a double.

Starting pitcher J o e Bosworth went five and a third innings to cap the victory and struck out eight men in the process. In the second g a m e the Dutch blew a five run lead and finally c a m e back to take the victory in the sixth inning. In the decisive sixth with two outs. Art K r a m e r doubled and Ron Venhuizen singled him in with the winning tally. Earlier the Dutch had gone out to an 8-3 lead with a five run outburst in the third inning. The big rally was featured by home runs off of the bats of Glenn Van Wieren and s t a r t i n g pitcher J i m Van Til. Rog Kroodsma also had a triple in the big inning. All told the Flying Dutchmen banged out ten hits for the game to secure the victory for relief pitcher Glenn Van Wieren. The double victory leaves Hope at the top of the MIAA with a 7-2 record with two m o r e league g a m e s to play. Alma is in second place with a 6-2 record with four more league g a m e s to play. If Alma takes all four of her remaining g a m e s she will be the MIAA champ even if Hope fails to lose again.

ALLEY-OOPS—Evidently unable to muster enough faith for this leap, Hope track star Bob MacKay grabs for bar in unsuccessful attempt to keep from tripping over it.

Arcadians Take Trophy In Sports Competition by James Mace By virtue of their second place finish in the intermural softball league, the Arcadian F r a t e r n i t y clinched the All-Sports Trophy for 1963-64. Behind the hurling of Denny Weener. the Arkies defeated the Independents 4-3 to sew up the softball second place. However, not until the outcome of the KnickFaculty g a m e was announced did the Arkies have the trophy cinched. With John " S a n d y " Van Iwaarden pitching, the faculty -defeated the Knicks to clinch the trophy for the Arkies. Previous to these two g a m e s a s t r a n g e situation presented itself.

However, if the Arkies beat the Indies then th"* Indies would finish below the W c k s and t h e r e would be a tie for the title. Not taking the easy way out, however, the Arkies went out and beat the Indies and left it up to the Faculty to come through, which they did. The battle for the trophy had been fierce from the t i m e t h e golf tournament opened the int e r m u r a l season until the final g a m e of the sof'ball season. Now the Knickerbockers will have to hand over the trophy which they won last y e a r to the new champs, the Arcadians.
