Among these injustices he cited the exploitation of m i g r a n t w o r k e r s , the raising of prices at tulip t i m e and the hypocrisy evidenced by allowing the Windmill to r e m a i n open on Sunday in a town which strictly enforced the blue laws in o t h e r cases.

Science Not Favored

Senate Requests SLC To Grant NDL Charter

M a n y F i n d D r a f t Test E a s y Last Saturday 185 Hope men took the Selective Service College Qualification Test in G r a v e s Auditorium. Later the s a m e day, 10 Hope College students marched in the tulip time p a r a d e carrying placards which protested that the draft test was unfair. The draft test is designed to be used as a criterion by local d r a f t boards in determining the classification of college students. The passing grade is 70 per cent right out of 150 questions. Any student not passing the teat can ^e reclassified 1-A and lose his 2-S student deferment if his acadamic standing is not high. In recent months the test has been attacked as an unfair discriminatory examination. In addition, the entire Selective Service System philosophy has been subject to attacks from many sources. Dr. S. Phillip Van Eyl, who administered the test on Saturday, feels that the draft test is used for purposes of "expediency without regard to the underlying principles of American d e m o c r a c y . " Under any selective system, discrimination will exist, he commented. "Is it fair that a more intelligent person gets a better chance to live?" he questioned. Dr. Van Eyl feels that a lottery system would be more just than a selective system. The test itself has been accused of being designed to favor the science and math m a j o r s over those concentrating in the humanities. When Hope students who took the exam were questioned, however, they said they found exactly the opposite to be true. The general opinion also was that the test was fairly easy, although some of the questions were trickily worded. Sophomore John Nivala said that although "I didn't have too much

trouble, some of the questions were two-faced." He felt definitely that the test "did not concentrate on any one area, least of all science." Don Damsteeg agreed that the test was "definitely easy, much easier than the college boards." The ma jority of students thought that the test favored English students, not-

ing that the math did not go beyond the elementary algebra and geometry level. A few, however, complained that there were "quite a few g r a p h s " and considered the test difficult. Br. Van Eyl noted that more students will be taking the test tomorrow and again next Friday.

The p r o g r a m includes a reception Saturday afternoon and a banquet Saturday evening to officially welcome the Yugoslav students, who will be staying in the U.S. for the summer. Later in the evening the students will be guests of the Alpha Phi sorority at their spring informal. Participating in the program will be President Calvin VanierVVerf, who, along with Dr. Irwin Abrams of Antioch College, helped negotiate the first Yugoslav seminar during the s u m m e r of 1964.

The orientation session will be the last time the group of Americans will meet together until they assemble in Vienna on August 19 for the flight to Belgrade, Yugoslavia. Part of the weekend will be spent making plans for travel and study during the one month the group will be in Yugoslavia. Participants in the seminar receive scholarships to cover expenses. Sobania is planning to travel to Europe with the Vienna Summer School group and spend the s u m m e r traveling. Taylor will be spending the s u m m e r in the Vienna Summer School program. Before returning to Hope College for s u m m e r school, the Yugoslav students will spend two weeks louring the E a s t Coast and have two weeks of independent travel. A few of them are planning to remain in this country for a full >ear's study at a GLCA school.

At the Student Senate

meeting

Tuesday, the Senate voted 9-8 to approve a resolution presented by the New Democratic Left. The resolution passed recommends to the Student Life Committee that it accept the NDL as a campus organization, although noting that the Senate does not necessarily support the views of the NDL.

The meeting will be this afternoon at 4 p.m. in the Chapel basement. In other business, the Senate passed on to IFC without comment a committee report recommending that the All College Sing be abolished or replaced. The College phone

The Year in Review

Student Court Confronts Problems of Jurisdiction By Paul Verduin What do you know about the Student Court? The response which this question usually engenders f r o m a Hope student is a blank, questioning s t a r e . If at all verbal, the answer usually admits to the vague conception that it is a group of students who in some unknown way contribute to the complex, incomprehensible machinery of the power structure of Hope College. Court Function Misunderstood Thus, the Student Court is probably one of the most misunderstood. though potentially one of the most significant organs of Hope's student government. According to the Senate constitution. "The Court shall h a v e original jurisdiction and penalty levying powers in all matt e r s pertaining to the regulation of student ethics and discipline at Hope College." Bob White. Chief Justice during the past year, int e r p r e t s this as follows: "The Court a t t e m p t s to fully understand the problem at hand and come up with the most f i i r and equitable solution, while being concerned both for the student offender and for the wel f a r e of the c a m p u s community.'* In addition to the Chief Justice, six students of junior or senior standing comprise the organization, this y e a r they were Anita Joeckel. Ruth Zieman. Gene Pearson. John Knapp and J i m Klein, while A1 Miedema. John Simons and Brad Race filled the sixth position successively throughout the year. During the course of the Court's eight sessions thus far this year, eight cases deliberated upon deal! with violations of the college drinking rule, one dedlt with gambling, one with breaking into the Little Theater and one concerned an appeal from two Kollen Hall residents who had re-painted their room. In n-pst of these cases, the guilt of the offenders was readily admitted, leaving the court with the unpretensive task of pronouncing sentence. Anita Joeckel. who acted as

secretary for the Court's proceedings said, "Often it s e e m s as though w e ' r e simply turning the crank of a machine that deals out punishment." A drinking case had involved conflicting reports f r o m the complainant and the defendants, a situation which demanded an investigation by the Court. White and other Court m e m b e r s felt that this case was one of the more challenging and constructive the Court had been given. "Relations within the Court have been very good." White said. " E a c h case has promoted discussion and study, giving the defendant a fair chance. Moreover, all of the members have taken their positions seriously." Social Fro Common Penalty In regard to sentencing. White told that while some work projects and research papers had been required. social probation had proven to he the most effective and satisfactory m e a n s of punishment. The drinking rule, for example, calls for a severe warning and social probation for the first offense, followed by suspension or dismissal for the second violation. White e m phasized the fact that the Court considers each case individually and adjusts the sentence accordingly. Miss Joeckel said, " I t is important to instill a good attitude toward the sentence in the defendant. They should understand why the action is being t a k e n . " Rapport between the Court and the Administration has in general been excellent, in the minds of both White and the Deans; however, the exact nature of the relationship belween the Dean's office and the Court in the official judiciary sys t e m of the college community s e e m s to be poorly defined and r a t h e r a r b i t r a r y . But mutual con sideration and improvisation have m a d e that system work well enough. Said White, "The Deans have done everything possible to work with

Lecture on Programmed Music Education Slated An illustrated lecture on p r o g r a m med instruction in music education by Dr. Paul Schwartz, c h a i r m a n of the music d e p a r t m e n t at Kenyon College and a display of programed m a t e r i a l s from the Great Lakes College Assn. will be presented next Wednesday. The display in Van R a a l t e Hall m a r k s the completion of the p r o g r a m m e d instruction project, directed by Dr. Robert F. De Haan, c h a i r m a n of the d e p a r t m e n t of education of Hope College. The three-year project had as its goals the determination of a r e a s of the college where curriculum programed instructional m a t e r i a l s are appropriate, to p r e p a r e such m a t e r i a l for use in GLCA colleges, and to evaluate the use and the broad effects of these m a t e r i a l s . The p r o g r a m produced by Dr. Schwartz in the music building will be one of three p r o g r a m s in music

education that will be displayed. Dr. Schwar'z will discuss his p r o g r a m with faculty, students and local educators at 4 p.m. Wednesday. The lecture will include s a m p l e f r a m e s projected on a screen while the music for the f r a m e is placed on a tape recorder. Dr. Schwartz was born in Vienna. Austria in 1907. F r o m the Vienna State Academy of Music, he received diplomas in piano and composition, and m a s t e r diplomas in composition and conducting. In 1933. he was awarded a Ph.D. degree in Musicology from the University of Vienna. He c a m e to the U.S. in 1938. and since then has been c h a i r m a n of the music departments of Bard and Kenyon Colleges. His honors as composer include four first prizes at the National Compose r s Clinic in Chicago in 1944, and the Richard Oppenheim Memorial Award in 1950.

the Court and to promote its interests." White explained that some cases of delinquency are beyond the scope of an a m a t e u r student group. These include psychologically disturbed cases, sex offenses and those which, due to expediency, or more implications transcend campus life, involve the larger college reputation. He added that in nearly all cases Dean of Men Carey consulted him. and together they decided what incidents would be included in the Court's agenda. Both Dean Carey and Dean of Women Van E e n e n a a m report their s?tisfaction with this y e a r ' s Court's p e r f o r m a n c e . Dean Van E e n e n a a m called it one of the most effective groups on campus, saying that "when peers weigh a m a t t e r and meet out discipline, the result is very effective — the offender is m e r e willing to learn from the experience." Exceptions Do Occur The general rule of understanding between Court and Administration is not without exception, however. F o r example, the suspension of a coed for beinp outside her dorm a f t e r hours while participating in a plot to abduct the maypole h a s caused some contention, due to the nebulous definition of the heirarchy of judicial authority. The coed involved was captured by city police while t a m p e r i n g with the central object of the annual May Day celebration on the night of May 5. The Dean of Women gave her the choice of being " c a m p u s e d " until exam week or being suspended for a week, a punishment which meets with AWS standards. The student after consulting

her parents, chose the latter. All parties involved ignored the fact that, in the light of the Senate Constitution sentences on the order of suspension are properly under the jurisdiction of the Court. Moreover. Dean Van E e n e n a a m did not deem it necessary to notify the Court of her action, or to explain why it merited her personal attention. Gene Pearson, a Court m e m b e r and newly-elected Senate President, commented, "The incident gives the a p p e a r a n c e that the Student Court lacks authority and is ineffectual, w h e r e a s this has not been the case throughout the year. If we're going to have a Student Court, we should use it to the fillest e x t e n t . " White's main recommendation for next year is to "clarify the judicial structure of the entire campus. especially that for the women. Once this is clear, the Court can h a v e appelate jurisdiction and be in accord with what the Senate Constitution calls for. Next y e a r ' s Court m e m b e r s are

Dear Editor . . .

Marcher's State Defense and Students Comment We who marched and handed out leaflets during the Tulip Time Parade on Saturday, May 14, had many reasons for doing so. Most of these, with which we all agree, are listed in the statement we handed out during the parade, copies of which are available in Van Raalte. However, the statements were necessarily brief and incomplete, and we would like to clarify and expand them. We did not protest to avoid being drafted, and indeed may have endangered our d r a f t status by so doing. We did not protest with any official sanction from Hope College, and a r e not in any way connected with any prenest or future organization on this campus. With this disclaimer in mind, it is important to keep two questions s e p a r a t e : one is why we chose to protest our government's actions concerning the conflict in Vietnam and the Selective Service Examination: the other is why we chose to act illegally. We have already briefly outlined our reasons for protesting in our statement of purpose. While we did not act with the hope of im-

mediately convincing anyone of the validity of our position, we do believe that we have the responsibility to speak out on issues about which we have thought deeply. The dangers arising f r o m silence are far greater than any physical or mental dangers arising from our protest. Although we did not protest simply to break a law, we do recognize the illegality of our actions. Our responsibility to speak out could not have been realized unless people listened. If we had chosen any other way of demonstrating, people would have totally ignored us, as we saw in the civil rights mnrch of last y e a r . We hope that discussion stimulated by our action does not end with this issue of the anchor, but that we have provided the impetus for further discussion. Bruce Ronda, Richard Wolters, Bryce Butler, Glenn Pontier, Rob Werge, Jeff McGilvray, J i m Pohl, Donna Leech, Renee Zeigler, Gordon Korstanje, John Cox and Alan Cole. I a m writing in response to the

Tulip-Time demonstration last Saturday. First, I must identify with the students who did demonstrate in that I, too, h a v e serious questions about our policy in Vietnam, and I, too. cannot endorse the reasoning behind the draft test. I do not become publicly exorcised over these vexing and vital questions nrimarily because I a m unsure of how I would deal with them mvself. realizing that there is no such thing as a sure answer. I sadly watch our g o v e r n m e n t suffering as it does from a lack of strong, imaginative, global leadership—as it is plagued by the harsh realities and t h e throbbing uncertainties of the Vietnamese problem of war and peace, economic instability and political immaturity. But in addition to being a government with a messed up foreign policy, it is also a government that offers to m e m o r e personal freedom and opportunity than any other gove r n m e n t on earth today. And this brings m e to m y second point—that this fre'Hom exists as a result of law. That is, the basis of the freedom that we Americans enjov is respect for and use of the law—law not in the abstract, theoretical

sense, but law in the specific instance—which is where theories stand or fall. And to be specific, law which meets the situation of two people claiming to have the freedom to conduct a p a r a d e at the s a m e place and time by providing for the issuance of permits. In Holland last Saturday, the Tulip-Time people had the permit; the demonstrators didn't. The fact that the students failed to use lawful channels of dissent is a serious charge against their confidence in the democratic process which, f r o m my acquaintance with them, I a m sure is not in this case a valid charge. The issue of legality is an important one in a society that insures individual freedom by m e a n s of law. And this brings m e to the third point I want to discuss—what it was that made the demonstrators willing to ignore the law. Like most Midwestern communities, Holland nurtures several prejudiced illusions about itself, about America, and about the world. This is often distressing to college students who have thrown off m a n y of these old illusions in favor of better ones. H e r e at Hope, it becomes particularly distressing at tulip time

when an unenlightened populace spouts piety and good will at the s a m e time that it is prostrating itself before the dollar sign. To students frustrated by a President who also likes to spout piety while he deftly plays the political g a m e that he knows so i n t i m a t e l y well. Dutch tulip worshippers and weak international leadership become identified with each other; and one gets so infernally upset about it! (I do, at least.) Well, the crus a d e r ' s impulse is to destroy these illusions in which Midwestern Christians feel so comfortable and secure—these illusions that confirm the quick answers of ignorance. And what better way than to . . . why, of course! Indeed, one outraged Kalamazoo resident compared the demonstration Saturday to P e a r l Harbor—shattered illusions of what? But in addition to shattering illusions, the demonstrators also shattered an image of our college and an i m a g e of what responsible dissent consists of. Granted that there is a long and "honorable" tradition of unlawful dissent in our country, it m u s t be understood that there is (Continued on P a g e 5)

anchor Review:

"Fantasticks' is High Fantasy By Rob Werge Simplicity and illusion in theater are difficult to attain. It is therefore seldom that d r a m a creates a fantasy whose " r e a l i t y " can be wholly believed. "The F a n t a s t i c k s " wins from its audience such belief. The Little Theater production demands not only the viewer's empathy, but also his active engagement with the players. When The Girl tells the audience directly, "This morning a bird woke me up," she creates her own special reality. Into that new dimension, the viewer follows because he wants to believe her. The mind's willful creation of an illusion of word and sight is the success of "The Fantasticks." The play tells simply of a boy •Ted Johnson* and a girl (Kathy Lenel) growing out of awkward innocence. Their fathers 'Mel Andringa. Phil Rauwerdink) try to rush the process. But youth must grow in its own season and it is only after being hurt by a man of the world 'Tom Coleman) that the boy and girl can realize the depth of love.

Johnson and Miss Lenel, Rauwerdink and Andringa reach, at times, a perfection of musical comedy techniques. Words and action blend into a wholly good impression with no loss of individual expression. Their tensions from speech to song are smooth and natural. Tbey completely lack the heavyhanded "Now I'm going to sing a song" approach.

Gallo) does not have the smug assurance of a man who, above all, knows the ways of the world. Mortimer (Ewan Mac Queen) and the Actor (Wes Michaelson) are products of sheer creative imagination. The shaky Shapespearean and his, die-hard Indian friends are the projections not only of fine acting but of the best costuming and make-up. They epitomize a combination of great wit and skill in our theater. The Mute (Ken Walz) functions as a character and as part of the physical stage. His presence and stylized actions constitute a significant part of the success of the total scene. But as a technique, he appeared sometimes to be overworked; when pantomiming tree branches waving in a storm, he, unfortunately. looked like he was t r \ i n g to fly and I awaited his momentary take-off. A distinct lack of traditional convention eased the adjustment of the audience to these actors and vice versa. Psychological barriers between the two spheres were certainly dissolved by the time Andringa and Rauwerdink finished

Characters emerge with a singular consistency and unbelievability. Rauwerdink is an Oliver Hardy of a father-image and Andringa, who can carry the audience away with laughter, is his perfect cohort. Johnson and Miss Lenel give excellent portrayals of the boy and girl in love. Alone or together, they sing of their emotions with spontaneous freshness; they become the illusion and the essence of youthful love. Coleman, unfortunately, looks less comfortable in his role. When speaking the poetry of the narrator, he can weave a lyrical spell. But at ether times he seems to be breathlessly trying to keep pace with the other players. His character (El

their "Never Say 'No' " number. Such rapport was initially made possible by the play's context in a simple set. Side triangles set on the low platforms created only a fragile proscenium effect. With their first entrance, the musicians added to such informality. Led on the piano by Steve Rumpf, they furnished a solid accompaniment to the songs and action. They helped infinitely in setting the tone of the evening. The technical handling of lights provided the weakest link in the evening's entertainment. Strong white light was used as perhaps in keeping with the "simplicity" of the play but, it served to harshen the subtle qualities needed for a comic production. When other colors were employed, they appeared as small spots and tended to fracture the relation of the actors to their total environment. Aside from Rauwerdink and Andringa whom I thought to be too heavily done, the make-up was very good. I have already mentioned the excellence of Michaelson's and Mac Queen's appearance. The costuming suits well each individual

Kathy Lenel as Luisa c h a r a c t e r ; Miss Lenel's dress was particularly well conceived. Despite inevitable flaws, "The P'antasticks" is one of the best plays that I have seen produced at Hope. Comedy has more pitfalls than tragedy, for in the former audience is asked continually to objectify. But this is a special play which must be seen as El Gallo says, "Not with your eyes, for they are wise; but see it with your ears: the cool green breathing of leaves. And hear it with the inside of your hand: the soundless sound of shadows flicking light. Celebrate sensation." Go and celebrate this play.

Readers Speak Out

Readers Criticize Vietnam March, Question N D L 'Continued F r o m P a g e 4) also a long and "honorable" tradition called democracy "with its very essence rooted in respect for law that is subject to change via "lawful" means of dissent), and a long and "honorable" tradition called Hope College. And. if you want to talk of long and "honorable" traditions, you can talk of things like capital punishment, segregation, war, the d r a f t and tulip time as well. I'm not going to condemn the demonstrators for three r e a s o n s first. I want them for my friends; second. I respect their concern; and third, I'm generally not the sort to bawl people out for doing what they feel to be right (especially these students—some of whom I know have given the m a t t e r much thought). All I can say is that I think I have good reasons for declaring why I would not have done as they did. One final word. So Holland is suffering from illusions—what else is news? I don't begrudge Holland its illusions, even if they are founded on ignorance and self-interest. They serve their purpose—they insulate small-town folk from a hostile and threatening world. I've got a few illusions of my own that come in handy for the same purpose. And. I a m sure that the students who demonstrated have theirs as w e l l maybe they feel threatened by hostile ignorance. Well. I often feel threatened by ignorance myself. But my gratitude to a system of law that gives me an expanding m e a s u r e of freedom is great enough to prevent m y attacking ignorance via the unlawful m e a n s of an "honorable" tradition. The effect of the demonstration will in the long run be both good and bad—my demonstrating friends cannot possibly have the illusion that what they did will be entirely f r e e of unpleasant repercussions. So, I guess it is like most events in history—if you try to moralize about it you'll end up saying absurd things. So I'll play it safe and stop talking about it; except for this: To the extent that the demonstration did foster a more critical attiude toward our present leadership —to that extent, I think it was a good idea. Keith Taylor Campus discussion concerning the recent protest m a r c h h a s reached the state of triteness and repetition. The legality issue has since been dropped, with the protestors

openly admitting they possess no legal grounds in support of their reckless action. The group involved obviously does not represent the popular trend of opinion on Hope's campus, but merely the whims of a certain clique of "intellectual" misfits. Their arguments concerning Vietnam were the usual interesting, but unsupportable. accusations alreadyoverworked in discussion on this campus. The right to dissent h a s has now been equated with the acceptance of certain civic responsibilities. The overextension of protestor's rights is simply the infringement upon the privileges of the majority of the American community. In attempting to encourage the local population to follow the interests of the protestors, they accomplished little more than uniting the narrow-minded opposition already firmly entrenched in this community. To protest the draft test as unfair and discriminatory is not only logical, but legitimate. A constructive protest, however, would have provided the suggestion of a better test. Let's face it, under the deferment system, no test can fail to promise favoritism. The only nonbiased alterative would be the straight draft. Is this what you want? Lastly, one question. Concerning your protest that the draft test is being used as a loyalty m e a s u r e by our government; do you really f e a r to have your loyalty to your country tested?

I commend the student protestors for their interest in current events; however, I disapprove of their poor manners — they should have worn wooden shoes. John F. Reed Kettering intern in chemistry Re Saturday's anti-Vietnam demonstration. The question that I feel is of utmost importance here is not the question of the moral integrity of maintaining our troops in Vietnam. This question is not equipped with a simple yes or no

answer. The question is not one of freedom of expression. Besides, there are. especially in this case, many ways to express oneself. More likely, the question is of the intellectual sincerity of these people. There is a part of me which would applaud their efforts saying that they are conscientious Americans hoping to assist our country (the question of the accuracy of their suggestion being waived). Yet I cannot help but notice that under no circumstances could this demonstration have ameliorated the situation in Vietnam or mitigated problems at home. These m a r c h e r s knew the intellect and feelings of the people attending the parade. They should have known they would

be greeted with nothing but emotionally centered, defense-mechanized booing and jeering, which at best could objectify no purpose and at worst possibly lead to a small not. The people of Holland have their own town, their own customs, their own ideas; maybe this time it would have been best to let them have their own parade, too. Craig Holleman We would presume that because of the extensive coverage by the news media that all Hopites are by now aware of the demonstration which took place during the tulip time parade last Saturday. We would begin by mentioning that as pait of the editorial board of the

Statement of Purpose Editor's note: The following is the statement of purpose of the 10 students who marched Saturday during the tulip time parade. We protest the actions of our government in Vietnam for the following reasons: 1. We feel that the Administration has been acting in bad faith by refusing to deal with Viet Cong leaders as independent agents to attempt to bring this action to a close. There have as yet been no cogent reasons for this failure. 2. Our goal in carrying on this action is to preserve and further the democratic way of life. The actions of our Administration fail in three ways to do this. ^

Fighting the Viet Cong without dealing with them serves to isolate them. This serves, as our diplomatic relations with Russia show, to increase their bitterness against us. Lack of contact leads to lack of understanding, lack of understanding to blind hatred, and blind hatred to needless war. % If political contact with the Viet Cong would lead to peace ' a n d we can not know until we have tried) we could prevent needless slaughter of our men. % In supporting South Viet Nam, we have supported a series of autocrats and dictators who, as often as not, have ignored the rights of their people to vote and speak freely. We protest the draft test because: 1. The draft test, being an intelligence test, has two weaknesses: % It discriminates against those who work hard but a r e not intelligent. % It is not competent in itself to judge any person. There is no psychologist who would defend a judgment about a person's intelligence on the basis of one test, which is what the government is doing here. 2. Our second reason is that the draft test is being used as a loyalty m e a s u r e by the government. We a r e m a r c h i n g here today because: 1. We wish to keep this protest alive in the eyes of our p e o p l e even during a festive occasion such as this. 2. We wish to reach as many people as possible, and there is no better way than this. 3. Those marching here present a sharp contrast to the general festivity, and we hope that our protest will stay alive longer in your minds because of this contrast.

anchor we were at least partially responsible for last week's editorial questioning the draft test — expressing essentially the same views held by the mar cher s. Despite this we regret the occurance of the demonstration and would question not only the validity of the way in which the marchers registerred their objections to the test but also their true purpose in marching. It seems unusual that a more just means was not used to protest an allegedly unjust system. Knowingly entering the parade illegally does not seem to be the most honest way of protesting injustices, since the only protection for justice is the law. The city of Holland is not opposed to demonstrations which protest situations directly affecting the people of Holland, as shown by the students civil rights march to city hall of last year. There are other channels of protest which would have more effectively awakened the people of Holland to the alleged injustices and would have perhaps aroused more support for the cause. We also would question the integritv of the demonstration because protest appears to have been a front and a by-product rather than the primary concern of the 10 marchers. It seems to have been a good way to break up tulip time instead of a crusade to bring injustices to the minds of the spectators, as the statement of purpose purports. We feel this opinion is not without foundation. First of all the marchers were not in complete agreement on which situations were actually under protest. The statement mentions only the d r a f t and the Vietnam war. John Cox includes such unrelated topics as the exploitation of mierants and the raising of prices during tulip time. The statement itself seems overly concerned with the setting of the demonstration. It appears that the marchers thought it would be a great idea to carry signs in the parade and decided that disagreement with the U.S. policy in Vietnam would be as good a thing to put on them as anv. We are gratified to see that the m a r c h e r s do not c l a i m to represent Hope College and they are taking the conseauences of their actions as

individuals. We are rather disgusted with those who helped to plan and p r e p a r e the dwrwnstrillon

"But duty certainly cannot lead one to actions which are both unlawful and irresponsible." The base word of "responsible" is, of coursc. "response" and in this situation it m e a n s a positive reaction to law. Now there exist levels of law: local law, national law, and, I believe, a Law which transcends the two. This last level, this Higher Law, demands that lives are more important than any country's sense of inflexible " c o m m i t m e n t . " And it demands that a system of war exemption for white, middle-classed youth is wrong. It was to such demands of the Law upon the self that one responded so feebly on that Saturday afternoon. For it was on that day that the question of the war was raised for 30,000 people, not some tomorrow. Time is short; it is not impossible that we shall all be blown up tonight. The time to act. dramatically in time and space, is now and was then.

" My main purpose, not sole purpose of course, was to attempt to make people realize the war, to realize the fact that there hangs over our heads and the heads of the Vietnamese and the Chinese the threat of destruction. I can propose only an intensification of consciousness about Vietnam, I do not propose answers. If I were L.B.J., I don't know what I would do. I do know, however, what I would not do: I would not refuse to sit down with the Viet Cong; I would not refuse to honor China's air-space; I would not bomb Cambodia; I would not support General Ky and I would not turn down a Chinese test ban proposal on the grounds that they could not be trusted. The fact remains that I am not any president and I thank God for that. But as a student and as a human being there exists a duty to raise the ugly-headed problem of Vietnam and to keep it in the minds of the community. It is not my concern that people reach the s a m e conclusions I do. But it is imperative that they be conscious of alternatives and answers other than the State Department's or mine. Even if further w a r is inevitable, we must not walk that road like sheep. For once we stop judging our government's decisions, once we stop actively questioning and, perhaps, dissenting, once we begin to equate duty and obedience, the wishes of the State and the will of the people, then we are lost as a nation and as individuals. Lost even on a bright Saturday afternoon watching a simple parade.

but took no visible part and have accepted no responsibility for it. We question the honesty of their actions and hope they would acknowledge their participation, whatever their motivation. Neal Sobania Tom Hildebrandt

Last Saturday afternoon 10 Hope men marched for their intellectual convictions. I have no doubt that their action was a serious attempt to live up to the beliefs expressed in their statement of purpose and that they were not inspired by any desire to achieve notoriety as has been suggested. However, I also have no doubt that the m a r c h was fundamentally wrong. The basis of a democracy is the law. By resorting to extralegal methods to promote their cause, the m a r c h e r s were acting against the very democracy which they expound. The traditional strength of our society lies in its capacity for dissent within its legal framework. The students acted outside that legal framework and in doing so risked the possibility of an incident which could have resulted in injury to themselves or to some of the spectators. What if the crowd had heeded the call of one onlooker to " m o b t h e m ? " Was it worth the risk? Furthermore, by breaking the law they have given an odious connotation to their position in the minds of the average Hollander. P e r h a p s they have succeded in generating discussion of Vietnam and the draft test in Holland, but have they not also succeeded in prejudicing that discussion against their own position?

As a humor paper, the article was really disappointing. I mean this guy was not really serious, he was realistic. And while I wouldn't call him sophisticated, he had a point. There we were, in the lounge, all psyched up for a good sarcastic laugh and all we could do was agree with the guy and go back to our rooms.

I thought for a while I was going to be able to criticize this publication for its simplicity. It's true that it was worse than the Holland Sentinel in aiming at a ninth-grade level. But that idea was shot down when I read the editor's opening statement, where he acknowledges the fact and says he has done it purposely. "I offer no apology for the simple clarity. A man maintains a relationship with God in a simple fashion — Christ compared it with a father-son relationship." I had to agree again but this time I refused to return to my room.

Tuesday night the Student Senate approved by a slim margin a resolution recognizing the right of the New Democratic Left to organize. The NDL wanted this resolution to present to the Student Life Co-m mittee on Friday afternoon. Why did NDL ask for this resolution? No other nascent group h a s felt the need to ask Senate support of the right to organize; all other clubs merely take their proposed program to the Student Life Committee where the jurisdiction and authority fdr accepting these proposals rests. The Senate is not the body that is responsible for beginning clubs. The NDL's response was that they wanted to show support for their right to organize. It seems strange to me. that when several Senate m e m b e r s asked for a week to talk to their constituents and find out how they felt, this was opposed by the NDL.

My last attempt to knock down the issue was in saying that the author was a worm-theologian, obsessed with the sinful nature of man. And it's true at least that I have never seen a publication in the Emmie House that used the word "sin" as frankly or frequently as this one. But I wasn't quite convinced; I guess by that time I wasn't as set on knocking the issue, I wasn't as sure I wanted a case against it. And in reality the "sin" it discussed was just as intellectually respectable and probably a lot more real than most of the theological issues other papers might deal with. In the month left before the end of school, it's very possible that the Emmies will get the Challenge again, I don't know. I do wish I knew who the guy was who paid our subscription: I can't help wondering if he'd consider going active.

As Holland Grows and Changes, What Must Be Done to Prevent Delinquency? Editor's note: This article, the last of three in a series dealing with the problem of juvenile delinquency in Holland, Mich., studies the recommendations for curing and preventing teenage delinquency in the future. By Bill Wichers

W

HAT SHOULD BE DONE to prevent and cure juvenile delinquency in Holland, Mich.? The Juvenile Committee, commissioned by the Holland City Council, submitted in their report a number of recommendations for dealing with this social problem. The recommendations were based on the assumption that juvenile delinquency would probably increase as the nature and size of Holland's population changed during the next 10 years, and that curative and preventive m e a s u r e s were necessary. Agencies to Step Into Bad Homes "The City Council of Holland should establish by ordinance a Child Protective Agency with the legal power to a c t . " This agency would be set up to work in four a r e a s of juvenile affairs; as a children's protective service, in a cultural enrichment program for the culturally deprived, in the administration of a Big Brother Program, and as co-ordinator of "all the different persons and agencies which try to serve the youth of our community." The children's protective service would be, ideally, a means for coping with the p r i m a r y causal factor of juvenile delinquency: an unsatisfactory home environment. It is the child from an unhappy or deprived home who most often becomes the serious delinquent or .sociopath as confirmed by the research report described in earlier articles. A Children's Protective Agency would have the legal power to intercede, if necessary, in such situations and give whatever aid it could to see that the child would have the " c h a n c e to experience a decent home and an opportunity to grow up as a decent well adjusted citizen." Such an agency might be able to help in the following situation described in the report: A ". . . tragic case described in one of our interviews is that involving the home of a 14-year-old girl and a new baby. The 14-yearold is the baby's mother. This girl went as far as the fifth grade in school and is retarded. 'The baby's father dropped out of school in the fourth grade.) The 14-year-old has two older sisters who have illegitim a t e children. The parents take care of one of these children. The other baby was t a k n n away from her 16-year-old mother by the Allegan County Court. After that baby was born, the mother eot married • but not to her babv's father). Right a f t e r they were m a r r i e d thev left the babv with a three-year-old boy who bashed its hpad and crushed the skull. It was then that the court stepped in. This 14-y^ar-old mother has an 11-year-old brother and three younger bro^hors and sifters. They were described as shoplifters pnd as having stolen at least .^0 bikes. The 14-year-old's mother feels that it is her daughter's right to keen the baby. Rut we migM wondor what n'gMs the b&bv will haye without a Children's Protective Agency."

C

OUNSELING AND PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE of the parents in such homes would also be provided and could give much help. The parents in sucb cases, however, a r e often very much opposed to such help when it is offered, and rarely seek such help on their own. According to the American H u m a n e Society, it is when parents refuse to give the basic rights to their children that they deserve that a community h a s " t h e right and responsibility to intercede." The CPA would be the intercessory a r m of the community empowered, in an e x t r e m e case, to request the removal of the child to an adequate fostrr home. The Big Brothers of America is an organization with a p r o g r a m "wisely and carefully conceived for normalizing and enriching the experiences of fatherless boys." It was a recommendation by the committee that such an organization and p r o g r a m be started in Holland under the administration of the proposed Child Protective Agency. This organization would

match, as similar Big Brother programs do across the country, m a t u r e and responsible adult male citizens with boys whose fathers are absent in an effort to provide the boy with a father's stabilizing and guiding influence. While the individual work involved in these p r o g r a m s is important in reducing serious delinquency, other p r o g r a m s for action on a broader basis (also coming under the administration of the CPA) are proposed by the committee. These would involve action seeking to reduce "tensions and frustrations that cause both serious delinquency and some of the more disturbing aspects of developmental delinquency (like gang fights)," and are identified as cultural enrichment programs. The Higher Horizons p r o g r a m in which Hope College students have participated is an example of one of these. Yet this program requires more administrative control to more carefuly match the students and children involved and to help them in their relationship. It would also be very desirable to reach the children at an even earlier age than this program does. Therefore, it was recommended that the CPA "supervise a nursery school enrichment program for such youngsters." That is, those youngsters of younger age who come f r o m home environments which can be identified — "on the basis of family characteristics and older brothers' and sisters' behavior" — as typically formative of juvenile delinquents. The committee recommended that the Cherry Lane Nursery and staff be utilized by the city in the afternoons to carry out this program which could coordinated with and through the Head Start P r o g r a m of the Holland Public School System.

F

INALLY, THE CHILD PROTECTIVE AGENCY would attempt to provide coordination of juvenile activities on both an individual case level and, on a broader basis, with all the agencies concerned with Holland's juveniles including the police, the school systems, the courts, the Jaycees, the Y.M.C.A., and so on. It would also provide the confidential file on the persons involved which would be necessary for such a coordinated program. Improve Police Department "The Holland Police Department should try to orient itself to the problems of an urbanizing community by emphasizing the prevention of crime and good public relations as a m a j o r adjunct of good police work. . . . It should orient itself towards the modern ideal of appropriate college education for police personnel. . . . (It) should be provided with a new building and modern facilities. . . While the Holland Police Department has been suitable for the small town Holland, the committee felt there was a good possibility that it would be woefully inadequate within the next ten y e a r s for a Holland with a population possibly twice as large as at the present. Also, with an increasingly scientific approach to the control and prevention of crime, and a consequent need for more highly trained and specialized personnel, a reorientation of procedure and thought in the department seemed necessary. Modern police work with an emphasis on the prevention of crime requires much more concerted and individual work along with "effective public relations." This type of effort requires trained and intelligent men who can gain the respect and cooperation of the community and its juveniles. The committee stated that while the community has been fortunate in finding dedicated men of high caliber in the past, it is going to have to provide better salaries, a better budget, and better facilities in the future to attract new men of the same type who can continue to provide Holland with effective law enforcement as well as h?ndling the increasingly important job of public relations necessary to prevent criminal action. Establish Human Relations Council "The City of Holland should establish a Human Relations Council as an agency of the City Council. . . . " The purpose of such a council would be to "build communitv." It would not function as simply a civil rights organization bu^ would be concerned with reconciling the differences found in a community of increasing racial and social div^rsitv. It would attemot to alleviate misunderstandings and prejudices formed by ignorance and to promote understanding and apprecia-

tion of people who are not "just like you." A beginning of this work could be found in helping bridge the cultural gap which seems to exist between the present Spanish-American and Dutch communities. Such action could help to prevent any more of the gang fights which have occured between these groups and secure a permanent place of Dutch traditions in a community where the Dutch are increasingly becoming the "largest minority in the city, not . . . the controlling m a j o r i t y " . Vocational Guidance Necessary 'The school systems of Holland should make every effort to staff their secondary schools with professionally competent counselors who can perform both vocational counseling and personal counseling. . . . one counselor for every three hundred students."

S

TUDENTS WHO ARE MOST APT to drop out of school or show delinquent behavior while in school are the ones who are most in need of the services of a " m a t u r e , experienced and well educated . . . " counselor. This person should be able to counsel a student in vocational possibilities and the requirements for them because there are very few parents who have a thorough knowledge of the complexities of the modern world's technology and its vocational requirements. In the words of the committee's report, "If we can help them (youngsters particularly vulnerable to delinquency pressures) to find vocational opportunities that are meaningful to them, we need not worry too much about their becoming criminals." Develop Sex Education Programs "The school systems of Holland should develop sex education p r o g r a m s to begin at the junior high level or earlier." The fact that over half of the sample group of Holland teen-agers were definitely in favor of sex education in school should indicate a need for this type of program. A misunderstanding of the role that sex plays in m a r r i a g e and life can lead to difficult experiences both before and after m a r r i a g e as m a n y studies have indicated. It was the committee's desire to see a program instituted in the school systems which might help to prevent many later problems and to see it started in the sixth gr^de. if possible, before such problems developed. Apprentices for Industry

"A coordinated high school apprentice program should be established with a cooperation of local industry." A program of this sort would go beyond the shop courses offered to provide more intensity of training and would help to insure the occupational security of the more than half of the high school students who do not go on to college. It would also help to provide an incentive to students to keep them in school for the "academic work so important to good and meaningful citizenship and life experiences." Build A Swimming Pool "Holland should build a swimming pool and consider the possibilities of developing a recreation center-teen canteen for its young people."

This recommendation is supported by the youth of Holland. It is "unfair and neglectful" of a city so close to an a r e a where the greatest natural resource is water to have children who are unable to swim or save their own or others lives, when it might be necessary, because they haven't had the training provided. Better Staff for Probate Court "The Probate Court staff salaries should be raised so that they may attract personnel with advanced professional training and the size of the staff should be increased at least up to the m i n i m u m level of six . . . and supported partially by state funds. Particular attention should be given by this staff to establishing and supervising an adequate foster home p r o g r a m . "

T

H E PROBATE COURT IS P R E S E N T L Y seriously underfinanced and consequently lacking in the n u m b e r of people it needs to do an even adequate job of looking after the juveniles who come to its attention. It is given the task of handling adoptions, supervising foster homes, and handling all full time work with juveniles on probation. Ninety juveniles were on probation under the court's supervision in 1963 and the staff dealing with these juveniles consisted of only five people including the judge. A case load of 30 juveniles per staff m e m b e r is considered the m a x i m u m , while these five people had to deal with all the other probate court responsibilities as well. None of the staff has the Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) degree considered to be the minimum level of training for such work. At present, due to these shortages of staff and money, there is no adequately supervised foster program for the a r e a ' s 27 licensed foster homes. Improve Reform Schools " E v e r y effort should be exerted by citizens of Holland and their elected representatives to have the state develop an adequate treatment program at Boys Training School and to have the state provide adequate treatment facilities for our seriously disturbed 'sociopathic' juveniles." The present Boys Training School does not have the effective t r e a t m e n t program necessary to rehabilitate or r e f o r m the boys sent to it. This is due to lack of funds and overcrowding. A boy sent there at present can be expected back in six months a more hardened criminal than before. Although the officials in charge of these boys institutions have wanted to start more effective pr ogr ams of "really effective diagnostic and treatment work," they have been unable to do so because the state h a s not been willing to spend the money needed. Public pressure is the only thing that will convince the legislature to do so in the future. There is also no effective treatment facilities available for the seriouslv disturbed youngsters — the "sociopaths" — and for much the same reasons. The report quotes a school official on this point: . . We have a boy in the State Hospital right now. The boy had to commit a crime before he was committed. This happened three times (the boy assaulted three girls) before it was possible to get him committed. We were lucky to get him when we did."

Hope Top Choice To Win

Dutch Host MIA A - Field Day Hope will be host to the MIAA Field Day track meet tomorrow for the first time in the school's history. Preliminaries start tomorrow at 10 a.m. and final events will begin at 2:30 p.m. The Field Day meet h a s taken on a new complexion in the last two years. In past years the MIAA track crown rested solely on the Field Day competition. Dual meets were not taken into consideration. Two years ago this was changed and now half of the championship depends on the performances in dual meets and half on the Field Day competition. Hope is in top position at the onset of the meet as they have come undefeated through the first half of the season in dual meet performances. This does not insure a Field Day victory for the Dutchmen as the picture changes greatly in all-league competition since outstanding performers are at a premium. Performers who have brought in the second and third places in the dual meets will find that the probability for finishing in the high point division greatly reduced.

In predicting individual performances Steve Reynen seems to be one of the chief contenders in the 880-yard run in that he has the best time recorded for that event this year. He has on two occasions, however, been beaten. Doug F o r m s m a , Hope's hard-running two-miler, s e e m s to be the most certain to win that event. F o r m s m a will also be strong in the mile but will have his work cut out for him in trying to overcome J e r r y Stiles of Albion. J a c k Rail of Olivet is the probable victor in the shot put event as he has almost a three-foot advantage over anyone else in the league. Another almost sure winner is Karl Wilson, also of Olivet, who has gone 22 ft. Vfe in. in the long jump for the record, which should give him a first. The outcome for Hope looks very favorable provided certain key personnel continue their dual meet performances and acording to Gordon Brewer, head track coach, " a few individuals come through with surprise performances that they are capable of doing."

INTO THE AIRâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Doug Nichols clears the bar with room to spare in the Adrian track meet which Hope won 94-42.

Golfers Win Contest, Dutchmen Down Adrian 94-42; Eye Championship Match End Track Season Unbeaten The Hope track t e a m ended their MIAA season undefeated as they downed Adrian last Saturday 94-42. This was their sixth straight league win. The win puts Hope in the favorite position entering the MIAA Field Day competition which will constitute the second half of league action toward the MIAA crown. Hope will have to finish either first or second in the competition to win the crown. The Dutchmen continued record breaking as they broke two and tied two. Doug Nichols tied a previous record as did the mile relay team of Sid Disbrow, Bill Hultgren, Steve Raynen and Ray Cooper. Doug F o r m s m a and J i m Pierpont set two new records. F o r m s m a ran the mile with a time of 4:23.8 breaking his old record of 4.24. This was the third time he broke this record this season. In the 330-yard intermediate hurdles J i m Pierpont broke his m a r k of 39.5 with a 39.4 clocking. Doug Nichols again threw the javelin IRl'S" to match his Mav 7 mark. The relay t e a m matched the mark that was set last year in the Field Day competition of 3:23.1. Double wins were collected by Floyd Brady, F o r m s m a , Nichols and Ray Cooper. Brady won the long jump and the high jump, while F o r m s m a also took the two-mile run. Nichols took the pole vault along with his javelin toss. Cooper took both dashes with a 22.1 in the 22(>-yard dash. Other first places were taken by Sid Disbrow in the 440-yard run, Les Cole in the discus and Chris Buys in the shot put. Hope won their final meet of the season against Grand Rapids Junior College 77MJ-58MJ last Tuesday. Results in order of finish:

Wednesday, the Hope Golf Squad took on the linksters f r o m Grand Valley State College, and proceeded to play the imperfect host, by rudely defeating the Lakers by an IIMJ to 31^ match score. Bill Forbes led the Dutch with a 5 over par 76, followed closely by t e a m m a t e George Cook with a 77. Bill Potter was high for the Dutch with an 81, and Larry Cain and Denny " B u b s " Bobledyke both shot 79's for easy victories over their foes. Low for the Grand Valley Linksters was a 77 by third m a n Tom O'Connel, who was the only Grand Valley sharpshooter to win his individual match. The Dutch so far this year have had bad luck with weather conditions, and also a lack of home course action, but they will be trying to redeem themselves with a victory in the League Championship match which will be up for grabs this Saturday at the American Legion Country Club here at Holland. The strongest foes of the Dutch will be the Knights of Calvin, who are presently leading the league in dual matches. One reason for the good showing by the Knights, and a possible good

However, the n a m e of golf could have been changed m a n y times to "if," and with 36 holes, many " i f s " come up. As the saying goes, anything can happen, and any of four t e a m s have a very good chance of winning. Following Calvin in the favorite spots would be Albion, Alma, and Olivet, with Hope sticking in there with home course advantages.

Hope Netmen Beat Adrian 9-0 For 2nd in MIAA Hope's tennis t e a m won its sixth straight match and upped its record to 5-1 in the MIAA, which "is good for second, behind undefeated Kalamazoo, by blanking Adrian 9-0. Hope's other match of this week against Wheaton was rained out. The t e a m will travel to Kalamazoo for MIAA Field Day on Friday and Saturday. Kalamazoo is highly favored, with Hope expected to provide the only real competition to Kalamazoo.
