Senior Women Hove All The Luck Presenting Progress Report On Phelps Hall

' •

One of the most prominent things on the minds of Hope women these days is the new w o m e n ' s dormitory, Phelps Hall. Heard everywhere are questions such as: "When will it be finished? "What are the rooms like?" and most frequently, "Who's going to live in i t ? " During the year, we've all watched the progress on the new dorm with increasing anticipation. Now it's almost completed, except for the finishing touches. By July 15 Hope College will be the proud owner of a new dormitory. The normal capacity of the dorm will be 160 women. Next year Phelps will accomodate women from the sophomore, junior and senior classes. The room drawing for the 1960-61 school year will be held May 23 or 24 and much to their delight, the seniors will be given first preference. The color scheme running throughout the whole interior of the building will be gold, various shades of blue and white, and charcoal tiles on the floor as the underlying tone. The rooms, with about the same floor space as the rooms in Durfee Hall, will be done in charcoal, white and blue, with white walls, blue doors, char-

coal tiles with a trace of blue, and off-white damask-type draperies. The furniture will be of blonde beechwood. Each woman will have her own lowboy type dresser, closet, a n d built-in study desk, with concealed lighting, above which will be a bookcase attached to the wall. The entire first floor will be comprised of the lounge, the dining hall, and the head resident's apartment. Mrs. Mary Tellman, presently residence director of Voorhees Hall, will be Phelps' first head resident and she will be assisted throughout the year by several student counsellors. The main dining hall, which will seat a minimum of 450 students, will have walnut panelling on the north and south walls and the other walls will be painted yellow-gold, to match the fiber-glass draperies of the same color. The furniture will also be in walnut and the chairs will have cobalt blue and turquoise colored upholstery. The tables, some rectangular and some circular in shape, will seat eight people each. Set off from the main dining room, a smaller room with a capacity of about one hundred

Orchestra Performs For Tulip Time Tourists Performing before an enthusiastic audience of students and Tulip Time tourists, the Hope College Orchestra under the direction of Morrette Rider gave its last concert of the year on May 11 in Dimnent Memorial Chapel. The orchestra's first selection was the "Concerto Grosso for strings. Op. 6 No. 5 in D major" by Handel. This concerto in four movements was followed by Lalo's "Symphonic espagnole for violin and orchestra. Op. 21." Violin soloist in this number was Miss Norma Houtman, a sophomore music major from the class of Morrette Rider. Two dance episodes from "Rodeo" by the contemporary composer Copland, followed. f

After a short intermission. Miss Edna Hollander, a senior music major from the class of Anthony Kooiker, played Rachmaninoff's "Concerto No. 2 for piano and orchestra, Op. 18." Both Miss Hollander and Miss Houtman were 1960 winners of the Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra Young Artist Contest and appeared as soloists with that orchestra in its April concert.

The joyful and bombastic "Symphony No. 4 in G Minor, Op. 88" by Dvorak closed the concert.

Reminder Concerning World Refuge Fund All donations will please be turned into the Business Office as soon as possible.

Grants Given Two Seniors Two more Hope seniors have been awarded grants for postgraduate studies. They are Hazel M. Montle and Roger Vander Zwaag. Miss Montle has received a teaching assistantship in Physics at Ohio University. This assistantship carries a stipend of $1800 plus remission of fees. Mr. Vander Zwaag was awarded a teaching assistantship in Mathematics at Purdue University, which carries a stipend of $1800. He declined three other offers to accept this one.

people, will serve as a conference and multi-purpose room. It will be decorated in the same fashion as the main dining room. With this new dining area such events as the freshman welcoming dinner and faculty reception can be held on campus at one place. Occupying an entire wing of the first floor will be the lounge, done in French Provincial and Italian Provincial and based on a cobalt blue, turquoise, and gold color scheme. The handpainted chintz draperies will be done in tones of blue and turquoise, while the carpets will be gold. The furniture will be mostly in sapphire blue with some pieces in gold and turquoise. The walls will be painted platinum. The basement floor will contain various storage rooms, a large laundry room and tentatively, one or two rooms for the women's clubs which are planned for next year. The approximate total cost of Phelps Hall is one million dollars. Because of the help of numerous people, from alumni to strangers, a long-wished for and much-needed women's dormitory will now serve as another evidence of Hope's progress in educational growth.

Changes In Education Dept. Looking over the recently is sued schedule for the academic year 1960-61, many students have been startled and confused to note the changes in the curriculum in the Education Department at Hope. This has come about through the faculty's studying of the educational program and Hope's desire for accreditation by the National Committee of Accreditation for Teacher Education (NCATE). The new program has already been approved by the Education Policies Committee and other changes are still in progress, particularly those in the area of majors and minors. Hope is also looking forward to some change in code for teacher certification in the state of Michigan. All present juniors will continue under the old program and will not participate in the new system. The new system will require the same number of semester hours for graduation; that is, 29 semester hours for elementary teachers and 20 hours for those students planning to become secondary school teachers. One of the major changes is the addition of a two-hour sophomore course. Introduction to Education, Ed. 31. This course will be taken by all of those planning to enter the field of education. The purpose of this course is to spread the program over a longer period of time and also

to stimulate students to begin thinking about education as a career as soon as possible. This course will be open to both sophomores and juniors next year The new program for elementary teaching will include Educational Psychology, 3 hrs.. Elementary Curriculum and Methods, 4 hrs., and P.E. Methods, 2 hrs., all in the first semester of the junior year. The second semester of that year will include Educational Curriculum and Methods, 4 hrs., Art Methods, 2 hrs., and Music Methods, 2 hrs. In the senior year the student will participate in Student Teaching, Ed. 81, 8 hrs., for one semester as in the present system and he will take a two hour course. History of Education, Ed. 60. These last two courses will be offered each semester. The curriculum for the secondary school teacher will also be quite revised. In the junior year the student will be offered Educational Psychology, 3hrs., and Specific Methods, 2 hrs., the first semester, and Secondary Principles, 3 hrs., the second semester. Student Teaching, 8 hrs., will replace both Problems of Student Teaching, two hours, and Secondary Student Teaching, 5 hr8 n which are offered under the old system. In addition the (Cont'd on page 3)

Auditorium, Mademoiselle Germaine Bree, head of the department of Romance Languages and Russian at New York University, will give a lecture on Albert Camus, the late French novelist who, at the age of 44, received the Nobel Prize for literature. Mademoiselle Bree will be brought to the campus by the French Department in conjunction with the French Society of Michigan. Educated in England and France, Miss Bree taught at Bryn Mawr College and Middlebury Summer School before accepting her position at New York University. During the Second World War she served the French Army as an ambulance driver and did liaison work for which she was awarded the Bronze Star. She was a member of the Fulbright N a t i o n a l Selection Committee from 1950-53, and is presently on the National Selection Committee for French Government Fellowships. Miss Bree has authored many books, articles and book reviews. Her latest book is Albert Camus, Biography and Critical Study; about which she will lecture when she visits the Hope Campus May 26. Last year she was appointed the Mary Whiton Calkins Visiting Professor in French for the spring term at Wellesley College. The lecture is open to the public.

A Question Of Honor

Review: DOUBLE DOOR by Elizabeth McFadden

The big issue that seems to be getting the most attention this week is the issue of the Honor Code and whether or not it will work. "It works at West Point,"; It seems to work at Oberlin," are the comments head from the members of the Honor Code Committee and the persons on the campus who want it at Hope. The Purpose as stated in the Recommended Honor System Charter states that, "The purpose of an Honor System is to develop the individual by maintaining and furthering a high standard of honor. This system requires respect for, responsibility to, and cooperation with the system and the members of the entire college community." "Fine! But, how does one individual or statement develop a high standard of honor in another individual? By making him sign a paper saying he has "neither received nor given aid" in a particular examination? By asking him to tell a student committee that he saw one of his friends cheating on an exam? No, that will not make a person honorable; but it will perhaps make him more aware of the faith that other people have put in him. This is something in favor of the Honor Code. But before anyone decides whether or not the Honor Code should be enforced at Hope he should be aware of some things. Will the Honor Code help the college in general? Will it help the student who is already a continual cheater? Won't it be easy for him to sign the paper? What will be done about an individual who is accussed of cheating and continually denies it? Won't the Reformed Church as a whole be somewhat shocked to find that a church related college after having been in existance for a century suddenly has to put in an Honor Code to keep it's students from cheating? Will students be able to live four years under an Honor Code and still be able to go out into the world and have a sense of honor within themselves? Some people can be trusted under an Honor Code — others cannot. Some people will go along and not cheat because they are afraid of getting caught. Is this the reason for an Honor Code? Others will respect it as a part of a spirit of trust — this is good. The issue seems to be: Does Hope College need an Honor Code? Are we ready for an Honor Code? You decide. —N.D.B.

Principles Of Honor The idea of an Honor System on this campus is not a new one. During the last two years a committee has struggled with the ideas both for and against the institution of such a system. Out of this discussion has come a clearer conception of what an Honor System is and how it could work for Hope. The committee has been able to arrive at this clearer conception because we have discussed, we have lived with the idea of such a system. Therefore, it is the purpose of this memo to communicate as much of our concepts and as great a part of this atmosphere, (for such a system must be an atmosphere), as is possible. However, atmosphere is difficult to communicate unless it has been experienced by both parties. Through our discussion, we have formed an idea of what some of the principles of such a system are, and it is only through discussion and experience that some idea of these principles can be known. One of the first and most important discoveries made in all of the discussion is that an Honor System can never be merely a ruling, a law, a political force, or an administrative device. But rather it is an atmosphere which must be a personal experience. This atmosphere extends much farther than the Code which is written. In this atmosphere, honesty must be a permanent, conscious, personal reaction wherein we are interested in what is the fairest, and most conductive means to get our education. We all hold integrity as a high ideal, and we know that if we do work dishonestly we are not learning-—dishonesty is cheating ourselves. It is easy to see that this system is personal. Do YOU hold the honesty of earning your own education as one of YOUR

high principles ,and are YOU willing to preserve this principle? The system is personal in that it operates as an atmosphere to keep YOU honest, specifically affecting each individual differently, which is one reason why it is so difficult to tell one exactly what an Honor System is, without actually experiencing such a system. This system requires a respect for the honesty and personal integrity of each student. In an Honor System you experience respect such that you cannot betray the trust of your fellow students and your professors. Related to this respect is responsibility. The system requires your responsibility to decide in the most rational way what is honest, i.e. what is the best for your education. It also requires responsibility to help your fellows to be honest. It is everyone's responsibility to be honest. Above all, the Honor system is preventive rather than punitive. The system does not operate to punish students who have violated its standards. The system operates with emphasis on educating the student to what is honest and keeping honesty conscious. In this way the (Cont'd on page 3)



by Richard Jaarsma The drama, as such, was not a good drama. It was melodrama tic, clicheridden, and often given over to histrionic passages which left the audience little, if at all, moved. The plot revolved around a rich, snobbish old maid in fashionable New York society, who, being the trustee of her father's estate and by that token also her brother's and her sister's holdings, feels that she must also be the guardian of their personal lives. This ranks as an obsession with her; this, and the preservation of the Van Bret, the family, stock. When her brother, Rip, marries a girl who nursed him back to health, in itself an overtly romantic notion, while he was suffering from an illness never specifically mentioned in the play (but one suspects anemia after listening to some of the brother's lines) the power-mad sister does every thing she can to stop or ruin the marriage. She nearly succeeds and in a pardonable bit of Poe-like live

burial theatrics, and subsequent rescue by the right and true, and some moralizations about evil and goodness, also by the true and right faction, the play ends. But not before the rich old maid must be explained in terms of Freudian aberations. Donna Davis, playing the part of the domineering old maid, was nothing short of wonderful. She handled her character well, and managed a real venom which, one might think, would be foreign to the majority of Hope's students. Her delicate arching of the eyebrows, only one at a time, and then murderously quizzical; her tight, scornful stage-presence, and her ironic repartee made one think of something slightly better than the average Palette and Masque production. Her final scene, in which she goes completely mad, was delicately performed, without the selfconscious hysterics usually accompanying such a tasking sketch. Nancy Rees, a freshman, was a perfect contrast to the strength and power of Donna Davis, interpreting her part correctly and with just the right amount of force to bring her off as a person and as a direct opposite of Victoria VanBret. She cringed when Victoria so much as looked at her, but in

Letter to the Editor

Examinations In Self

Hope Is No Utopia

Every day in the classrooms of the elementary schools, high schools, and colleges of our nation, thousands of students are taking examinations. These exams cover a widespread range of subjects from Algebra to Zoology. They may be weekly tests or semester exams; but the fact remains, all of us must experience these examinations.

Dear Editor: Reading the Memo from the Committee to Discuss the Pending Student Honor System, I have to make a few remarks, both short, and, I hope, to the point. My first remark is that I think that an Honor System should not even be thought about in a Christian College, which Hope professes to be. My second remark can be summed up in a question. Does the Committee really believe that not punishing students when caught cheating will make the situation any better? To work on the students' feelings of honesty is not enough. If it is proven that students do cheat, where are those feelings of honesty? Also the Committee forgets to mention the most important point: if it is not the professors who will do the checking under the Honor System, who is going to do it? Does the Committee propose to turn the students into stoolpigeons ? There is only one situation in which the proposed system might work and that is in Utopia, but we're not that far, alas. Yours truly, Paul E. van Reyen

the end, because right and goodness must conquer, she drew her strength out of thin air, but not miraculously or quickly, but rather letting the weak side of her character continue to dominate and showing just enough verve to make her presentation realistically plausible. One felt that both B. J. Berghorst and Gerald Boerhave as Rip Van Bret and his friend Dr. John Sully, respectively, could have been a little less monotonous and more lively in the action sequences of the drama, but their performances were, on the whole, not boring and with some work, they will iron out their difficulties of expression. The servants were all good, playing their parts easily and without stiffness. They acted as servants: this in itself recommends them. Paul Armstrong and B o b Jaehnig as the lawyer and the detective were strong in their roles and kept up the tension on their part so as not to make the failings of some of the others too evident. The play, then, was not good. The acting, on the whole, was. Ruth Vander Meulen and Greta Weeks, the student directors have my congratulations on their excellent job of directing the drama. They pulled it off with perfect aplomb.

Yet, I wondery how long it has been since we gave ourselves a thorough examination about our religious beliefs, about our faith, about what Christianity really means to us?

When was the last time we sat down and, with pencil in hand, actually listed our convictions or our beliefs? Many strengths, as well as weaknesses, in our personal faith would become much more evident and clear if we saw them in writing. For in high school, and maybe even here in college, too many of us were enveloped in a bubble of contentment as far as our religion was concerned. Our family, our friends, and the people with whom we came in contact with every day were religious people in some way or another.

Sunday-school lessons and church sermons spoke of heathens and atheists; however, we always put the thought in the back of our mind, associating the word "heathen—with the jungles of Africa. We assume that we will never come in contact with these people, so why should we bother to construct a sound platform of beliefs or a strong case for our convictions? Then suddenly, along comes Mr. Atheist or Mr. Doubt and with a sharp pin pops our little bubble of religious relaxation. Being unprepared as we are, we fall flat on our faces. What would you do if, for the first time, you had someone ask you, "Just who do you think you're praying to?" What would you say? "And just who do you think God is, anyhow?" It is amazing to see that in the small discussion groups which take place in our dormitory rooms or about the dinner table, the atheists and doubters often are in command of the situation. It seems they have given more thought and preparation to their arguments and reasons than many of us so-called Christians.

And what happens then? We smuggly say, "Oh, they're way off on the wrong track," shrug our shoulders and pass by. Or we may even be a little bit convinced because of the complete lack of our argument and the apparent strength of theirs, we give an inch and soon a mile. "What's wrong with this?" and "Isn't this quite natural?" And yet what else can we do? We've got to give them great credit for at least giving thought to their beliefs. This is fust the thing we put off or forgot to do.

Yet it is exactly what we must do. This is the very challenge which we must meet if we are going to live as Christians in such a world as ours. We hear so much about witnessing. And yet, isn't it the truth that more of us seem to be either floating with our heads in the clouds or running around trying to be a member of some group or gang rather than standing solid with our two feet firmly on the ground? The real challenge is here. Are we going to take it, or are we going to sell our religion short ? Now is the time for examinations. What is your answer? - J . W.

The Dean Discusses "It is so interesting to become acquainted with the freshmen and, through the years, to see them develop into capable seniors. Sometimes there is quite a change." This is one of the many reasons Dean Reeverts gave in a recent interview that bind her to her profession. The dean of women on Hope's Campus went on to say how interesting her job is especially at Homecoming. At that time she meets both former students and former classmates because Hope is Dean Reevert's Alma Mater. Before coming to Hope, Miss Reeverts spent two years at Bradley Institute, Peoria, Illinois. She received her Master's degree at the University of Michigan. Other schooling included studying in Europe during the summer of 1956. The Dean started her teaching career at Annville Institute, Institute, Annville Kentucky, as an Instructor in English and principal. There the mode of transportation was often horseback. "We made several long horseback trips into the surrounding counties to visit educational and medical centers and also the homes of students who came long distances to have the privileges of attending a high school. I still love the mountain people and the beautiful hill country. I'm always glad for opportunities to go back." Proof that Dean Reeverts did love the Kentucky hills is found in her devotion to her next job. She spent seventeen years as teacher and head resident at Berea College, Berea, Kentucky. Miss Reeverts returned to Hope in 1946 as an Associate Professor of English. Then in 1947 she moved into Gilmore Cottage. The former Hope student thinks that Hope attracts a high type of students. She stated that it is a privilege to learn to know so many students, to work closely with the fine campus leaders, and to have an important part in the total campus program. One of the interesting duties Miss Reeverts does is pairing off freshmen as roommates. Part of the secret of the success was given away by Dean Reeverts herself. She said, "It is a very interesting, time - consuming task. I believe it is important that students have congenial roommates. Using pictures, descriptive letters and data on admissions cards, we try to place two people together who we think will enjoy each other. We plan in terms of background, interests, type of personality, ect. I avoid putting a tall girl with a short one and a stout girl with one who tips the scale at little over a hundred pounds." When discussing regulations and changes, the proposal for women's smoking lounges was discussed. This idea has not been rejected. A committee has been giving it serious consideration and will submit its report to House Board at its next meeting. The active Dean also reported, "A special committee appointed by House Board has been working on a revision of our Women's Handbook. All suggestions for revision are given serious consideration, and some changes will be made. "The purpose of regulations is to provide a standard for group living which contributes

to the student's success in college and to his personal development. We want our regulation and standards at Hope College to contribute to that end. A fine dormitory experience will always be remembered, I believe, as having played a very large part in the enjoyment of one's total college experience." "Sometimes students t h i n k they want much more freedom. Change comes too slowly. They become impatient. Often, years later, as they look back upon their college experience, they discover that it is the stricter disciplines and the higher standards expected at Hope which contributed towards m a k i n g their college one which they are proud to call their Alma Mater. Hope College should not be an ordinary college; it should be a college of distinction." Dean Reeverts concluded by saying that we should as a college "hold fast to that which is good" and at the same time to be flexible to change where and when the changes are needed.



Chandler Off For Africa


Ronald Chandler, a Hope senior who recently received a National Defense Fellowship in African Studies, will take part in a travel program called "Operation Crossroads Africa" this summer. This is sponsored by an independent philanthropic organization that has sent hundreds of American students abroad to various West African countries. Chandler will work in a camp with African students in the Congo Republic for seven weeks. He will be able to have interviews with government officials and other African leaders during this time. On June 22 Chandler will fly to London and then to Africa. At the end of the summer he will spend a week in London for group evaluations of the summer program and return to the United States on August 30.

Principles Of Honor (Cont'd from page 2) system is aimed at stopping dishonesty before it occurs, not at torturing violators. It is a sort of couterforce against the breakdown of one's principles of honesty under tension. The system operates with such force that often if a student is dishonest, he is Tnade to realize what he has done; that he will often turn himself in as a violator. To create such a feeling of innate honesty in every student is the aim of every Honor System. The Honor Code Committee

Presenting Track Co-Captains Our Record A Switch, Football, Track Breaker Co-captain Jim Mohr of the Dutch thin clads comes to Hope from Hudsonville High School. At Hudsonville he played football and ran track. When Jim came to Hope he by-passed football for a year and concentrated on track. He now runs the hundred and at one time took first place in the league in that event. In 1958 he was third in the 220 and also ran on the relay team which holds the Hope record. Jim has also pole-vaulted and broad jumped. In the fall of his sophomore year Jim decided football might be interesting. His great speed proved an asset and I'm sure Alma's '58 team will long remember the fleet footed number 46 who scored a touchdown before the game started. Jim was an All-MIAA defensive selection last fall. Mohr is majoring in mathematics and next year will teach math and science at Grand Rapids Forest Hills High School. His greatest thrill came when Hope beat Hillsdale in 1958 for a share of the MIAA crown.

The other co-captain of the Hope College Track team is a Sophomore f r o m Kalamazoo, Michigan, who seems to break a record every time he runs a race. Its often his own record too. The man in question is personable Jim Rozeboom, current holder of two Hope College Track records, that of the 880 and the mile. Jim first set the 880 record in a meet against Calvin last year, in which he also managed to take the relay by a foot, winning the meet for Hope. Since then, "Rozie" has smashed his record two times, and the time now stands at 2:00.2, a time which he w i l l undoubtedly threaten again during his future years u n d e r Coach Gordon Brewer. His mile record of 4 minutes 33 seconds is a fine time for any college mile. In addition to his success in these two events, "Rozie" has proven to be an excellent anchor man for the relay squad, and in the last two M.I.A.A. meets, he has come from behind to win, or, as in this years meet with Calvin, to secure one of the rarest occurences of the season, a dead heat. Jim, who is currently majoring in psychology, ran crosscountry in his freshman year, and this year successfully defended his intramural handball championship for the second time. A member of the Fraternal Society, Jim will spend the summer working at Camp Blodgett, where he may find time for one of his favorite activities, water skiing. Pleasant and good natured, Jim's purposeful attitude at practice, and determination at the meets have been inspirational to all who know him.

Bruce Hoffman

interviewing Hoffman, A Rare Specimen by Paul Meyer Throws left, bats left, and kicks with his left foot! Sound unorthodox? It is not only unorthodox but rare, yet the Hope College baseball team can well be proud of such a rare specimen in the form of Bruce Hoffman, big burly 6'1", 190 lb. junior southpaw who hails from Hudson, New York. Bruce attended Clymer Central High School in Hudson where he compiled a 15-3 wonlost record which included a1 nohitter, 18 strikeouts in one game, and a .450 batting average. He came to Hope in 1957 as a freshman assuming a starting role as a pitcher and has been there ever since. Now at 21 years of age Bruce has already established a 8-6 won-lost record, posting a 3-2 record his freshman year, an impressive 5-1 record his sophomore year, and a disappointing 0-4 thus far. Although Bruce has found the going a little rough this year, nothing can be taken away from his ability and effectiveness as a hard-throwing left-hander for as a sophomore he was elected to the 20-man all MIAA squad. Bruce's greatest thrill came last year when he and his teammates knocked down the 1959 MIAA conference champions,

Albion, by a score of 5-4, however his best effort came against Olivet when he pitched a 2-hitter and struck out 14 batters. When asked about the future of the 1961 baseball team, Bruce replied, "Despite the fact that the Dutch are having one of their poorest seasons, I believe the ball players are gaining valuable experience which will be of great value for next season's performances especially when you consider that we lose only 2 of the players by graduation." Bruce is a history major and plans upon graduation to enter Western Seminary in preparation for the Christian ministry. He is an active Emersonian as well as vice-president of his fraternity. Bruce is also good natured both on and off the diamond and is frequently exchanging jokes or wisecracks with anyone who cares to listen. While interviewing Bruce, the question arose as to whether or not he would consider an offer from the big leagues if such an occasion should present itself. Bruce responded by saying that he "definitely would not consider any offers which insists on playing ball on Sunday," which if I may add, is one of the characteristics which makes Bruce Hoffman the type of individual we all know so well.

Spring Sports Season Is Hearing its Close The spring schedule drew near to a close last weekend, as teams played the last of the regularly scheduled games, and attempted to work in some of the postponed contests. The only remaining action in the M.I.A.A. is the participation of the track, tennis and golf teams in the annual M.I.A.A. Field Day to be held at Kalamazoo today and tomorrow. The track team downed its last league opponent, Hillsdale, last Friday by the score of 85 to 45. The Dutchmen authoritatively took ten first places. Standout individual performances were turned in by Rich Bakker, who won both hurdle events, and tied for the high jump; Co-captain Jim Rozeboom, who again came from behind in the relay to win; Freshmen Randy Menken who won both the mile and the two mile event, and Jon Schoon, who cop-

ped the 440 for the sixth straight time. The team goes into the Field Day tomorrow as a definite threat for top honors. The baseball team secured undisputed possession of the cellar position last Saturday at Zeeland, when the Hope nine dropped a double-header to a weak Olivet team by scores of 8-2 and 9-4. The Olivet club, sporting a not too spectacular record of 4 and 10, capitalized upon the poor fielding (eight errors), and mediocre hitting support which the Dutchmen have offered the pitching staff throughout the season, to • hand them their eighth and ninth defeats, against one victory. The box score: R H E Olivet 220 400 0 8 9 1 Hope 000 020 0 2 6 4 Batteries: Raines & Cilibrace (O), Vander Woude, P. Byl-

The team, coached by Dean Hilmert, downed Calvin 9% to 6%, and settled for a tie with the K-Zoo team, eight points apiece. With a record of 4 wins, 2 losses, and one tie, the team is eying the number two spot in the MIAA. The team, consisting of Bob Holt, Wes Nykamp, Tom Klaasen, Bob Klaasen and Ken Biel are playing today in the Field Day at Kalamazoo, weather permitting.
