"The peoples of history are divided into three distinct classes," said Dr. Benjamin Mays, president of Morehouse College, as he was addressing the students at the 9:30 chapel service on May 13. The first group is composed of persons who walk the high road and rise above the s t a t u s quo; Jesus obviously represents the class t h a t "walks the high road". Dr. Mays also included in this g r o u p such saints as Mahatma Ghandi and Joan of Arc, Galileo, Bacon, Darwin and the judges in the United S t a t e s Supreme Court who upheld the decision regarding integration. Those who walk the low road and sink beneath the s t a t u s quo make up the second group. The Hitlers, Mussolinis, members of the Klu Klux Klan, A1 Capones, Jesse J a m e s , Leopolds and Loebs as well as the robbers who were crucified with Jesus belong to this class. The people who walk the middle road and defend the s t a t u s quo comprise the third class. These a r e the traditionally good, respected persons who made Galileo recant, put Bacon in prison, and oppossed evolution and the U.S. Supreme Court decision. Dr. Mays effectively concluded his speech by making three observations: the " f u t u r e is with those who walk the high road" of truth, justice, democracy and God: ". . . only those who walk the high road are f r e e ; " and "No man is ahead of his t i m e ! " It is apparent, then, t h a t each m a n m u s t decide which road he shall walk. Rosemarie Kish and Gene TeHennepe assisted in the service.

Two Performances of Herbert's "Mill" Given "The Red Mill," an operetta by Victor Herbert, was presented by the college's music and d r a m a dep a r t m e n t s a t the Civic Center on May 14 and 15. Curtain time was 8 o'clock. The operetta was attended largely by Tulip Time visitors, townspeople, and students. The cast provided an enjoyable, relaxing evening of sparkling musical entertainment. The operetta w a s sponsored by the Holland Chamber of Commerce.

Going Out Into the Cold, Cruel World? "What can the 1958 college graduate do to improve his job chances? To this question, one of the best answers came from Arthur A. Burr, head of the department of metallurgical engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute who has been there for the last twelve years. Burr, noting wryly that "I haven't had to give this kind of advice since 1949" (another recession year), in the April 28 issue of Newsweek offered five tips: 1—"Make a candid assay of your strong points and try to sell yourself on t h a t basis." 2—"Don't sit back and wait for employers to come to you . . . Find out who the personnel people are and contact them." 3—"Don't stand on location or living conditions . . . A man has to be portable to get a good job." 4—"Don't have predetermined ideas as to salary or working conditions you will accept. You might lose out on some jobs with good futures." 5—"Remember that happiness in the job should count for 80 per cent of your evaluation of it."

Up to the Minutes

by Richard Jaarsma Now t h a t these is only a little time left in which to finish up all those things that have escaped our our a t t e n t i o n throughout t h e year, i.e. exams, payment of f r a t or sorority dues etc. I think I will indulge in a few r e m i n i sc e n s e s of the things that have set this year a Richard Jaarsma year apart from all others. Stop me if I get to sentimental. For the Seniors of course this has been a happy year. They go on now to graduate schools all over the country. Graduate schools, I might add, who don't really want them but can do little about itOthers will go on to business (after all, there is nothing like a college education to broaden a man) while still others help the government mess up their accounts still more. Many will be dissillusioned to find that Hope wasn't the best college in the world after all, others may come back to sneer at the poor, plodding lambs who also will at one time be thrown into the cold reality of an uncaring world. However, what they will do is not important, what they have done is. And to think all this effort and money to be rewarded by a crumpled piece of sheppskin! Ah, life does have its rewards!! The Juniors naturally are boundless with joy at the prospect of becoming Seniors. No more the infamous title of underclassmen, but rather the lofty position of Seniors. If nothing else is to be gained f r o m this step upward, at least the human ego will be satisfied. So as not to help them think too highly of themselves and bolster an already overflated ego, I will merely warn them of all the pitfalls that they may fall into and say nothing of a congratulatory nature. It may be, too, that I am just jealous. No class has so much scorn and

Students to Start "Gold Rush For Summer's Job Bonanzas Almost before the ink dries on final exam papers next month, college students by the hundreds of thousands will be going to work at full-time vacation jobs. Travel, adventure, profit and experience are the payoffs for ambitious students who join "The Great Summer Gold Rush," reports Don Murray in the May Reader's Digest. For many, the summer jobs will be curtain raisers to full-time careers later. Scores of companies design vacation work programs as basic training for permanent postgraduation jobs. Such programs enable companies and student employes to get to know each other's personalities and potentials. Money is the magnet which draws many of the tyros, and which makes resort jobs by f a r the most popular. Bell boys, "the aristocrats of student workers," can easily clear $1000 at a good resrt. Waitresses average $600-

Ver Beek Elected Veep of M.A.S.T. Hope College served as host for the annual spring meeting for the Michigan Association for Student Teaching Saturday, May 10. The theme f o r the conference was "New Designs in Teacher Education." A short business meeting was held in the morning in which officers were elected for the following year. Chester McCormick of Wayne University was elected as president; J. J. Ver Beek of Hope, vice president; Peggy Ramstad of Western, secretary; and Jack Anson of Central, Vern Hicks of MSU, Robert Fox of U. of M., and Monica Mullaly of Wayne were elected as directors. J. J. Ver Beek, professor of education at Hope College, will serve as president of the Michigan Association for Student Teaching for 1959-1960. Following the elections a general session was held in the music building on the topic "Working Toward New Designs in Teacher Education." A discussion period followed in which Morris McClure of WUM served as moderator. For entertainment a Dutch dance preceded the luncheon held in the Juliana Room in Durfee Hall. Esther Schoeder of WMU served as moderator and J. W. Hollenbach, vice president of Hope College, gave the message of welcome. Professor Florence Stratemeyer of Columbia University presented an address in the afternoon on "New Designs in Teacher Education." She stated, "Let us keep focus on improvement, but let us not blindly accept p r e s s u r e s around us." The meeting adjourned at 3:00 p.m.

Voorhees Hall . . . Memories for Many Having just observed Voorhees Day recently, it seems only fitting to turn to the history of this dormitory. The construction of this building dates back to the days of street-length dresses and the singing of hits from "Babes in Toyland," the year 1906. The funds for this construction came from an annuity given by Elizabeth Voorhees. The plans were drawn up by Dr. Mast, a retired professor of biology at Johns Hopkins University. The first lady principal was Mrs. Gilmore and the first Dean was Mrs. Durfee. She lived on the second floor as did all the girls. The first floor was devoted entirely to housing the unmarried members of the faculty. Instead of the basement sorority rooms of today, there were only two on the third floor. One of the sororities was Minerva which was open to both college and high school girls. As the enrollment increased, the Sorosis Sorority was formed. The men students came over from Van Vleck f o r meals as they do from Kollen Hall today. Lounge restrictions were much stricter in "the good old days." To many girls, over the years, Voorhees has remained more than just another place to live, but has been one of places that they cherish with many fine friendships and memories.




$700 a season. Such jobs often amount to "paid vacations." Foreign travel is a "bonus" collected by the few most fortunate students. For example: Alexander H. Ladd of Columbia University worked last summer as a grease monkey in a Mobilgas filling station— in Lagos, capital of Nigeria! Emory Brundy, University of Washington, spent his summer as a missionary in Yucatan, Mexico. Others find their own back yards equally adventurous — and porfitable. Mary Sanders of Simmons College, Boston, for instance, made $1000 teaching neighborhood children to swim in her back yard pool. Summer earnings are being put to excellent use. According to a U.S. Department of Education survey, students today are paying a greater part of their college-education bill than their parents! Much of the cash that goes for tuition, room, board and "extras" is saved from Summer salaries. Almost every state boasts agencies to help young people find jobs. There are outstanding U.S. Employment Service programs in many states. The 3200 chapters of the Junior Chamber of Commerce run a "Jobs for Youth" campaign from the Chamber's Tulsa, Oklahoma headquarters. State and college employment services are frequently helpful. Skilled advice for the student in search of a summer job comes from Dr. Frank Endicott, Northwestern University's placement director: "The best jobs go to students who have developed marketable skills — the ones who have learned to do special tasks and do them well." "The Great Summer Gold Rush" is condensed from "Today's Living." (Reader's Digest)

Coeds to Be Led By Women of Talent Hope Students Operate Tulip Time Parking Lots

Marge Ten Haken, President of House Board; Artel Newhouse, President of W . A . L . ; Isla Van Eenenaam, Vice President of Student Council; and Jane Klaasen, President of Y.W.C.A.

Spring is here again and with it the results of various campus elections permeate the air. Hope is proud of its women students and the fine leadership abilities which many of them possess. Not everyone can be a winner, and the ones that are are happy to have good people that they can rely on as followers. House Board for 1958-1959 will be under the able leadership of Marge Ten Haken. Marge comes to Hope from Milwarkee and loves the out-of-doors as is indicated by her four years of waterfront work at Girl Scout camp. Her various activities on campus include chapel and women's choir, ASA president, WAA intramurals, Pan-Hellenic board, Student Council, YW cabinet, '57-58 publications chairman, program co-chairman for R. E. Week, co-coach f o r Nykerk Cup freshman oration. House Board, and membership on numerous committees. Artel Newhouse was selected by fellow students to lead the W.A.L. Board. Her quiet and unassuming mannervikeeps one from realizing just how active she is in campus activities. Artel, recently elected to Alcor, has served on WAL Board, WAA Board, Delta Phi Alpha, Phi Alpha Theta, Pi Kappa Delta, IRC historian, vice-president of Student National Education Association, Student Direction Committee, Milstone literary co-editor, ADD, and May Day Coronation chairman. Sandra Dressel was born and raised in Holland, Michigan. She is very interested in music and is now a major in Secondary Instrumental Music. Sandy, too, has been active on campus as WAL treasur-

Points To Ponder St. John Ervine: To be everybody's friend is to be nobody's friend. For friendship is the feeling you possess f o r a particular person as distinct from all other persons. It is a very beautiful and intimate and close relationship which is destroyed if it is bestowed casually. To be able to say that you have a friend is to know that there is one person to whom your affairs are as important as his own, on whose aid and counsel and affection you can count in all times of trouble and distress, to whosse aid you will fly the moment you hear he needs your help. It is impossible for any man or woman to feel like that f o r more than a few persons. —The Irish Digest Talmud: Three things are good in little measure and evil in large: yeast, salt, and hesitation. —Quoted by Rudolf Flesch in The Book of Unusual Quotations (Harper)

er, sophomore class treasurer, WAA publicity chairman, also serving as secretary-treasurer; she has been a member of orchestra and symphonette, and a delegate to the '58 IAWS National Convention. Recently she has had the honor of being elected to membership in Alcor and the WAA presidency. Jane Klaasen is another Holland girl. She is interested in swimming, sports, music, and teaching. Jane has served as freshman class ecretary. House Council treasurer, a member of chapel and women's choir, junior class secretary, secretary of Delta Phi Alpha, YW secretary and district representative, a member of WAA and WAL, among others. A recent member of the queen's court, Jane will serev in the capacity of YW president next year. Last, but f o r from least, is Her Majesty Isla Van Eenenaam. Her winning smile and pleasing personality as well as her many abilities have made themselves • apparent lately with her election as next year's Student Council vice-president, election to Alcor, and the choice of the student body and faculty to have her as Hope's May Queen. Isla's various activities include secretary for Pi Kappa Delta, a member of Phi Alpha Theta, a member of the YW having served two years on the cabinet and is at present its vice-president, and has served two years on the Student Council, this year holding the office of corresponding secretary. The campus salutes you girls and conveys to you its congratulations and best wishes in your new undertakings next year.

A large number of Hope College students are operating our parking lots in the city during Tulip Time. They donated their time and labor in support of a scholarship project undertaken by the International Relations Club. Objective of the students is to raise the sum of $1200 in order to provide a scholarship for a student from Austria, who, it is hoped, will be attending Hope College next year. Hope College was given permission for the use of two of the college parking lots and two property owners in Holland very generously donated the use of their vacant lots to the college project. City lots operated by students are located on the corners of 12th and 13th Street and River Ave., they belong to Mr. DeVries and Mr. Anderson r e s p e c t i v e l y . Those gentlemen agreed that the proceeds of the operation would be used f o r the scholarship. Last Saturday, (May 10) morning, a group of Hope co-eds spent several hours putting the lots into operating condition. During this week, a large number of men under the direction of Eugene TeHennepe, past president of the International Relations Club, are taking turns giving one or two hours each as attendants f o r these various lots. As in the case of the Hungarian student project, which Hope College successfully completed last year, the idea for the scholarship was sparked by the International Relations Club, but the project as such has been adopted by the entire campus. Since the project was launched in J a n u a r y the income from several all-student activities has been contributed to this fund. The first of these was the Smorgasbord supper held in January. The proceeds of the Penny Carnival which was held in March were also donated to this fund. The total proceeds from the Penny Carnival were approximately $325. The next amount to go into the fund was the major portion of the $500 first prize which the International Relations Club won in the National Program Contest held in April in Washington, D. C. A f u r t h e r and very substantial addition to the fund has been promised by the Fraternal Society which pledged $250 of its Frater Frolics profit to this worthy cause. Thus, the students are quite hopeful that with the proceeds of their Tulip Time parking project, the goal will be reached. The selection of the student from Austria will be made by members of the Hope College Vienna Summer School group. Dr. Schlag, the Austrian Cultural Affairs Officer, who spoke at Hope College several weeks ago, is currently in Austria and has promised to prepare material on several worthy candidates for review by the Hope College group. It is hoped that once a student is selected, it will be possible to bring him back with the summer school group inly in September so he can enroll at Hope College in the fall of this year.
