vin Vander Werf, after July 1, 1963. This decision comes following a drop in attendance since the beginning of the year. It is estimated that only 25 percent of ihe college attends on the average while the monthly Chapel cards report nearly 70 percent, the required average. For example, Honors Convocation on Wednesday found no more than 400 students on hand for the ceremonies in the Chapel. The anchor a month ago reported the possibility of this action by the committee. Cook disagreed with the solution to the problem. He said this week that it is not the numbers that attend Chapel that make it worthwhile, but the personal confrontation of God by each individual on campus. He sees the mandatory attendance fostering the idea that Chapel is a meeting to attend. He sees Chapel ideally serving as a communal place for the finding of the "worthwhileness" of God. Cook's approach would be a total approach to the individual in all aspects of campus life. He would want the emphasis on personal responsibility to live as a Christian example and to give concern for the fellow student. Just like the Jews when Christ came to earth. Cook uses the example, Hope College is becoming too concerned with statistics instead of people and their devotion to God. The committee did not make specific recommendations as to what to do to put the program into effect, but Cook is skeptical of the program's implementation.

Cook said that he did not have a specific program at the present time, but he did not want totally voluntary Chapel.

IFC Elects Emmert and Brauer Officers At the final meeting of the year Wednesday evening, the Inter-Fraternity Council elected Knickerbocker Dick Emmert as president, and Arcadian Bill Brauer as secretary-treasurer for the coming year. Preceding the election present president Vince Kleyla gave a farewell address thanking the fraternities for their cooperation throughout the year. He concluded by saying: "It is imperative that the fraternities work together as a united group through the Inter-Fraternity Council in the coming transitional year," referring to the new homes and the delayed Rush program. Before the meeting adjourned the newly elected president, recognizing that the present constitution was "one big loop-hole", asked that all the new representatives study it over the summer in preparation for revision. The meeting closed with a vote of thanks to the Board of Trustees for the new fraternity homes on 13th Street which all fraternity men are looking forward to living in next year.

Many Memories i.





\a. . by Bobbie FreggenB ) m Washington Correspondent There is' no place quite like Washington, D. C. in these broad United States. This diamondshaped area, . situated between Maryland and Virginia, leaves an unforgetable impression upon all who pay it a visit. The best way to get to know a city is to live in it and to guide yourself around. In doing this, it cannot be guaranteed that one will not get lost or be late to an appointment, but he will come to love Washington. . Washington is an international city. Nothing can quite compare with the excited feeling one gets riding down ' upper Massachusetts Avenue, sometimes referred to as Embassy Row. He U passing along a little part of England, of Austria, of Japan, and the many more countries which have embassies along the avenue. The seat of our national government, Washington holds much to see. Just being on Capitol Hill, and having the magnitude of the Capitol in back of you, is a thrilling feeling. Here students see

government "in action." Everything seems so much more important when one is in the galleries or in the Supreme Court when a decision is being read. The Washington Semester Program gives students many opportunities. Where else but in Washington could one hold a conversation with Attorney General Kennedy, Senator Dirksen, Justice Brennan, or go to the same church as his Senator. Because it is our capital, Washington is also a tourist attraction. Like tourists, a student's first visits usually include the Washington Monument, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials, the White House. Then he starts to branch out and include the National Gallery of Art, Archives, Smithsonian, F o r d Theatre, Georgetown and the beautiful countryside. It is not only the city that has so much to offer, but the whole surrounding area. Sundays in Washington are a good time to go driving. The beautiful Rock Creek Park with its riding trails, hanging bridges and streams is always an attraction. Going a little farther is Great Falls in Maryland. And in still another direction are the sights of Virginia, including Mount Vernon and Arlington National Cemetery. Education in the capital area also brings personal contact with something most northerners only have to read in the newspapers— segregation. When one sees a sign "Whites Only" in a public amusement park in Maryland, it makes him stop and think. . Indeed, living and studying in Washington has meant different things to different WS students. Students remember various experiences, but one thing is certain, each takes back memories which will never be erased.


Dedicated to more effectively witness for Christ to our generation... open for tlie first time to college juniors and international students, Christian ministers and college graduates considering a Christian vocation.

GLASS MENAGERIE—Plans were announced today for a new $10,000 greenhouse to be erected south of the Science Hall. The new building will house experimental plants and rare demonstration plants.

Crook Announces Plans for Greenhouse After having lived with inadequate greenhouse facilities for several years, Hope College is making plans to build a greenhouse on the campus. The announcement was made today by Dr. Philip Crook, chairman of the biology department. The proposed greenhouse will be constructed as soon as funds become available and is estimated to cost $10,000. The structure will be built immediately south of the present Science Hall and will be 42 feet by 14 feet. The potting shed will temporarily be used as an animal room but will eventually be used as a plant science laboratory. The new greenhouse will serve two functions; it will be used to house unusual and rare demonstration plants for use in botany classes and also used to raise plants for laboratory experiments — such as geraniums, corn seedlings and castor plants. In addition, various research projects will take place in the greenhouse. Dr. Eva Van Schaack of the biology department has plans to do research on fungus infections in plants. Dr. Crook explained that the facility is urgently needed and „coca>c0ia„

that various philanthropic foundations are being approached for financial support of this project.

Gilmore to House 116 Hope Women of Four Classes

Professors to do Advanced Academic Study This Summer

by Kathy Verduin Loyal Shakespearian or not, one would have hoped the old question "what's in a name" had been exhausted — but it's being asked pretty regularly around campus again, especially now that Hope women have drawn for next year's rooms, and the name in question is "Gilmore." Formerly the imposing title of the Office of the Dean of Women, "Gilmore" is now the name by which Hope's newest women's residence hall will be known. Ohe-hundred-sixteen women of all fdur class levels will live in ' the 1 three-story dormitory • on Tenth and Columbia, which was formerly, it will be remembered with a whiff of nostalgia, the site of Fairbanks and Oggel (the Elder) cottages. Mrs. Lucille Ottipoby's new domain houses 74 more women than Van: Vleck,-where there was "always a little difficulty with the plumbing" and other questionable incidents such as the Unsavory Character on the Fire Escape last spring (it remains a matter of conjecture whether he was interested in the Van Vleck women or the jar of dill pickles on the window sill). Gilmore has no fire escapes. A Holland girl whose mother and brothers still live in town, Mrs. Ottipoby attended Hope for two years, pledged Sorosis, and married a Hope graduate from the class of '25. The new housemother will find Gilmore spacious, with 12' x 15' rooms' a maximum of floor space, one dresser per person, and windows which Mr. Visscher assures us will open easily. Gilmore will contain two study rooms, a sorority meeting hall, v a r i o u s unassigned sorority rooms, and a kitchenette. The name, by the way, is a legacy from the little Dutch daughter of Albertus C. Van Raalte (yes, Our Founder) ,who grew up sulficiehtly reprobate to marry an outlander named "Gilmore" and became a member of Hope's staff.

DE VELDER CLAN—One Hope College family clan will be broken up June 3 when Philip and Margaret de Velder, (from left), the oldest son and daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. Walter de Velder, Reformed Church missionaries to Hong Kong, graduate from Hope College. Still attending are Dirck and John, both sophomores. Philip is a political science major and plans a career in government service. Margaret, a French major, will attend graduate school next year.

Recent elections of WTAS, the Hope College radio station, revealed that few changes will occur in the radio executive council. Bruce Hepburn was re-elected as general manager of WTAS by this year's executive council. The radio staff members also re-elect e ( j peter Paulsen as program directori paul XaniS) m u s i c Vl . brarian, Barry Workman, business manager. The only new man on the council will be Bill Cathcart, elected as 1963-64 public relations director. Of the largely re-elected governing b o d y , Hepburn said. "When we first convened in the

from the Board of Examiners for the Foreign Service, Room 2529, Department of State, Washington 25, D. C.

fall of 1962 we realized that, being juniors, a good part , of the council would be back in 1963 if we worked well enough this year. Since we figured on coming back, we made our plans for two years. We hope that by the end of next year WTAS will be in even better shape than the way we found it."

The major part of this year's program staff is expected to return next year. According to Hepburn, "We are also expecting additions from the freshmen with their own individual slant on what comprises college radio." Any changes next year will be further developments of changes begun this year. More special shows will be scheduled, and the news staff will be more developed and expanded. * : '

Mouw Announces Schedule for Next Year's Activities « President-elect David Mouw has announced schedule changes for Student Senate planned activities for the coming year. The largest change comes with the concentrating of fraternity rush in second semester. The period will cover from Feb. 17 to March 14. Because of conflicts in rush party times, and a resultant shortage of dates for the men's activities, sorority rush will not coincide but will be held March 23-April 18. Although this rush change will cut first semester confusion, the second semester overload must be balanced. Thus, the Sing will be held a week before Christmas vacation, on Friday, Dec. 13. Inter-



national Night will take place on Nov. 2. Because of the traditional anticlimactic effect of the Nykerk Contest, coming a s . it has far after the excitement of the Pull, thCse events are going to be held over a Frosh-Soph Weekend, with the Pull on Friday, Oct. 25, and Nykerk on Saturday, Oct. 26. Winter Carnival will again be a part of the year's activities. However, the Carnival will be held over the week of Feb. 3-8 when, Mouw stated, " t h e r e should be snow for sure." February, usually void of activity, will contain not only f r a ternity rush but Dutch Treat Week (Feb. 24-29) and Spiritual Life Week, Feb. 10-15. Mouw has the dates for next year's Senate elections scheduled earlier, as he feels that new officers need more than two or three weeks to become acquainted with their tasks. Another essential point was the need for earlier decisions on activity dates, since the Civic Center must be reserved early. Thus Mouw has scheduled the week of April 20-24 for elections, with Illumination Night coming on a Friday.

Year in Review Through Pictures **A good picture tells 1000 words" is an old adage which we hope and feel is true. This special four page addition for this last issue is made up of some of the best pictures the anchor has published this year. This is a condensed review of the year of over a million words. Newspapermen agree that the only way to catch the reader's

attention is through pictures, and the anchor staff has shot a lot of them, over 400 this year, all including at least 1000 yards of film. These are the shots which have caught our eye for quality and newsworthiness. Quite a bit happened. The staff thought this section might be particularly interesting

because there is no Milestone this spring to rummage over. (Don't feel bad, everyone can scribble on everyone else's in the fall.) And if you feel so inclined, treat this section as a miniature yearbook. Suggested title: Millstone. The section was laid out by Mike Snyder, photography editor. It is made up of shots taken

by Snyder, David Cooper, Milestone photographer, Gerrit Wolf, Cal Fiala, Gerry Kruyf of Public Relations office and Holland Illustrative Photography. Throughout the year we have emphasized pictures and have handled them in different ways: experimental bleeding the second semester. If you approve of

what has been done, let next year's editor know so that the process can be improved. Whatever, pictures should be better than ever next year with Snyder returning for third year as photography editor^ Also the anchor will be published by a new offset process which allows for more and cleaner pictures.

A Final Look at Books and Plays by Critique Editor by David Kleis Ih the great tradition of Ayn Rand's Promethean Titans, Howard Roark in The FountainHead, and John Gait in Atlas Shrugged, comes Eugene Burdick's Mike Freesmith of The Ninth Wave. This novel is both shocking and exciting. Its pace never slows. Like the noble ninth waves that Mike challenges in the beginning and the end, this novel is of the power in man. The naked power of a man who didn't believe in fear but used his knowledge of it to overpower others. The explosive power of a man who believed that all men hate and thereby are open to destruction and defeat. In talking with his Jewish friend, Mike says: The two principles of fear and hate are the only things that make sense out of life. After Mike finds out that fear plus hate equals power it is just a matter of time before he is a success. He uses his formula with keeness and adroitness in seducing his English teacher in high school and driving a harmless drunk to suicide off the Golden Gate Bridge, the latter because of his flaunting a Phi Betta Kappa key around like a common badge of greatness, or something. Man Alone This is a novel of a man alone, a man who never experiences love, a man who seems to be above human love, and says, "you're whatever you do." This is also a novel of two people who love Mike and who sense his greatness becoming ruthlessness. Of Hank who rode the surf like a king and healed the sick with a scalpel. Of Georgia who alone understood that Mike too - had doubts but refused to admit his weakness, refused to admit his mortality. She describes him best this way: He went at a problem directly, like a physical assault, reaching for the heart of it. Then he reordered the whole thing, reshaped it and made it his. He only wanted to feel life yield to his power. • This is a novel of a man who as described by the psychoanalyst Georgia goes to see "is independent . . . hurting people but not deliberately." This novel is challenging and well-written. It posits a fundamental premise of life that man is cursed with humanity. Some men hear this curse as a blessing, but then there are a few, a precious few, who defy love and life in order to experience a personal exhiliration that comes from tackling the impossible again and again. Is not, however, life and living subjects to be loved? Burdick's answer is ambivalent. ; . Second Novel . Alexander Solzhenitsyn has once again brought Russia and its Mr. K. into focus with his novel, One ®ay In The Life Of Ivan Denisovih, which Harrison Salisbury of the New York Times has called ''a small, almost flawless classic." When you read this book you will enter into the world of a man in a Russian slave-labor camp, or as Tvardovsky says in his foreword, "The reader can visualize for himself many of the people depicted here in the tragic role of camp inmates . . . are the same people who by the will of circumstances have been put to severe physical and moral tests under special and extreme conditions." One Day ii a novel of man enslaved by other men and abused as an object. It's a novel of dignity and force about man's indignity to other men. Dostoevsky, in a letter written in 1876, has captured the essence of this novel with the words:

Christ knew that you could not keep a man alive by bread alone . . . rather put the ideal of beauty into men's souls, for then they will all become brothers to one another and working for one another they will be rich, while if given bread alone they will become enemies with one another out of boredom. The question to oe asked is this: Does this novel depict in its central figure a man who has the ideal of beauty in his soul or is merely concerned with filling his belly. Or to put it in the words of Matthew, "is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?" John Updike is one of the most talked-about young writers in America today and for two good reasons. First he's an extraordinarily sensitive young man capable of probing into our own era with daring and skill. Secondly Updike is almost poetic in the way he handles language so that as in the case of his first novel Rabbit, Run, Rabbit's sorrows become his and our own. Rabbit* Run, is as most first novels, autobiographical. It is a terrible indictment of man's irresponsibility and insensitivity, and like other activistic novels, tells of man seeking but never finding. Rabbit is seen in the first pages of the novel running, playing basketball and on the last pages running, just running nowhere at all: He Runs His hands lift of their own and he feels the wind on his ears even before, his heels biting heavily on the pavement at first but with an effortless gathering out of a kind of sweet panic growing lighter and quicker and quieter, he runs. Ah: runs. Runs. It is Eccles, Rabbit's "silly, friendly minister who finds the pulsebeat of Rabbit and modern man when he says: Christianity isn't looking for a rainbows If it were we'd pass out opium at our services. We're trying to serve God, not be God. The truth is you're monstrously selfish. You're a coward. You don't care about right or wrong; you worship nothing except your own worst instincts. Updike's Latest Updike's most recent novel The Centaur was originally conceived as a contrasting companion to Rabbit, Run. It retells the myth of Chiron, the noblest and wisest of the centaurs, who, painfully wounded and yet unable to run, gave up his immortality on behalf of Prometheus. In Updike's retelling Olympus becomes Olinger High School, Chiron a teacher of general science there named Caldwell, and Prometheus his fifteen-year-old son Peter. Seeking to pierce the shadowline that separates human experience from the mythical dimension, the author alternates objectives with chapters told in retrospect by Chiron's son, and translates the agonized centaur's search for relief into the incidents and accidents of three winter days spent in Pennsylvania in 1947. It is in this collection of short stories, Pigeon Feathers (Available in Crest Books for 60c), that Updike's sensitivity and ability is really evident These stories are of emotion and man, of his weakness and power. The Persistence Of Desire is a story of an unfulfilled lust Pigeon Feathers, a story of a youth's (Continued on page 11)

Final Words from Departing Editor by Gerry Wolf Looking over the last two years, qualitative and quantitative improvement has been the anchor editorial policy. Newspaper policy must be fluent, depending on the staff of the paper and the environment in which they publish. For several years the anchor has tried to present a consistent point of view in Hope's milieu as part of the improvement principle,. A cursory review should provide the evidence. • . • Sixty-two issues ago, I was a green sophomore who had just been named editor of the anchor, which for the most part was a four page weekly bulletin. I had high aspirations and little experience; one year of sports writing arid a year of editorial polemic. First semester last year the staff and myself struggled to learn the ropes and put into prac-tice*. some of the ideas we had. Faintly the anchor started talking about issues, locally and nationally, printing more campus and national ' news (remember Jack Jenner's report from Moscow?), and : perking up interest with more pictures and timely cartoons. .... Second semester the. anchor. grew to six pages with the addition of the provocative Jules Feiffer cartoon and a bridge column. This year the paper has published eight pages as often as the budget would allow. New additions were pointed articles and critiques replacing the bridge column, the ever articulate columnist Jim Michmerhuizen, who recently won an award from the Michigan Collegiate Press Association; and better and fresher news coverage. • With these additions qualitatively the anchor has published a record number of 32 issues in this our 75th anniversary of the

paper and 100th anniversary of the college. A total of 224 pages have been run off the press, approximately one-third more than

any previous year. All this qualitative and quantitative improvement has been possible because of an able and

anchor Editorial Policy Objective To publish a newspaper to meet the needs of the campus community, including students, faculty and administration, not alumni or constituency. Privilege Guaranteed campus subscription, use of Hope College name and reputation, access to official news sources and freedom of expression within the following: . Obligations -—A truthful, comprehensive and intelligent account of week's events in context to maintain meaning. Context should include the principles of Hope College and newspaper standards within good taste, high morals, federal and state laws of libel, rights of privacy particularly concerning personal disciplinary action by college, copyright and obscenity. —A forum for the exchange of comment and criticism in articles, letters to the editor and editorials on campus, local and national news. Specifically: ; 1) At no time shall it become a sounding board of one person or a group of persons for their personal use. and advantage. • • ,.*• < . 2) If letters are critical of administrative policies, proper administrators must be consulted, afterwhich if letter is printed, administration will be allowed to reply concurrently. •„ 3) Columnists shall be .given full range of expression within anchor policy, but, their opinions need 'neither coincide withv nor represent the opinion of the editor. —Projection of a representative picture of constituent . groups on campus. Comments on college policy, administrative, or student, shall be handled with proper investigations, discussions and discretion. Paper shall not support any party or candidates for election, but reserves right to comment on political issues. —Presentation and clarification of society's values and goals. —Full access to day's intelligence. —Operate as a solvent business enterprise which includes not accepting liquor or political advertising, (except for campus office, a proper balance of news to advertising of about 85-75% to 15-25% respectively. —Prepare a student for leadership, and help in writing skills for whatever profession he plans to enter, journalism or other.

Hope: neither confidence nor trembling fear, neither optimism nor pessimism. Only hope. •: What is it about four years that can bring a man to such a point? I don-'t .know. But from that point nothing that exists looks as important as some of the things that don't exist. In the^ course 'of trie conversation I mentioned earlier, I told my friend that if I had any say about matters the column with which I began last fall would be reprinted in the first anchor every year. I meant it. Students come here - expecting heaven. They learned to expect heaven from their parents, their ministers, and the public relations office with its brochures and bulletins. They come, and they see the truth, and live the rest of their lives in that moment of disillusionment, like Miss HavishanTor Peter De Vries. j Two things are necessary, always.-The belief that Hope Coll e g e r s a Christian college, and the perception that it is not. Either of these without the other leads to madness; the madness either of pride or t h e madness of despair. ButCbf the two, despair is the lesser evil, for where there is despair there is hope,- but where there is pride there is only death and damnation. Well then, goodbye. Drink lots of coffee for .ma next y e a r ^ ,

experienced staff, which includes, for example two Woodrow Wilson Fellows and four Wall Street Journal scholarship winners. Also, thanks go to faculty and student contributors. There have been the provocative and articulate debates of Dr. Edward Savage and Dr. Gerhard Megow. And on the administrative side, there has been the excellent cooperation of Dean James Harvey and Dr. John Hollenbach in giving the anchor freedom and responsibility in printing important news. Following my last summer's work with Chicago's American as a reporter on the city desk with a Wall Street Journal Scholarship, the anchor editorial policy of qualitative, improvement as stated in the first. editorial. of

the year has continued. As the year comes to a close, the experience of this year indicates a possible expansion of the policy. (See the box for the details.) It is hoped that you will take the prerogative and the responsibility to make the anchor adhere to these next year. To close this editorial, and my college and editorial career, I would have one wish for the college. I have expressed most of my opinions in the past four years and have only one thought remaining: vigorous thinking on important ideas in a tolerant atmosphere. (This is . plenty to think; about: big ; discussion on chapel next year.) In this way the college will never become the church, • but the critic a n d strengthener of the church.

Critique Editor Takes by David Kleis Times juggernaut has once again rolled over and through yet another year at Hope College. Time now is filled with* retrospection and regret and also rebellion. We have" also. been disturbed about certain aspects in Personal Counseling at Hope College, and we too are angry. We are angry that among the students there isn't more responsibility, isn't more respectfulness, isn't more responsiveness. Students at Hope College are challenged to become more responsible. The cry of the era is for freedom without responsibility. Man cannot have any freedom without first being responsible to that which has set him free. Man has been set free from the bondage of death, from the chains of sin by the redemptive act of God's only son, Jesus Christ. This is history. This is life. This is freedom. Freedom is not the affirmation of one's selfish flesh in the face of matters of responsibility, both explicit and implicit, between you and God, between you and your fellow human beings, (which incidentally also includes our Deans), and between you and yourself. Students who come here expecting heaven should never have left their place of departure. Students who come to Hope College expecting a heaven on earth have never lived an honest moment in their lives. Students at Hope College are challenged to become more respectful. Respect for persons and respect for the feelings of human beings and for their sincere ef-


J t 3


forts has died. •' Respect takes many' 'fonhs, hot the ' least of which is holding in highest esteem, even though there is some intellectual • disagreement, ; out elders, our guides who have meant so much to us and have given so mtfth' and diked so little. We are after all still students. We are not pedagogues, deans, or counselors . . . yet. Even if we were, may we never have to listen to ignorant sneers and open jeers, unless we have consciously and openly failed. Then only perhaps, but then who is to judge? We aren't gods, much less God whose image we bear, with respect let us hope. We are primarily students seeking to learn about the mysteries of life from superior men of wisdom. May we search with earnest endeavor and a quiet respect. Students at Hope College are finally challenged to become more responsive." Each man responds to a voice. For one the voice is very clear. For another the voice is incoherent. Yet if students were to emerge as responsible, respectful persons, they would undoubtedly respond to the voice which called them to the highest and noblest things. There are many .areas, many disciplines, and many controversial issues to be explored,, that await the response of responsible college., students^ All that man need do is to cease his aimless wanderings through e n d l e s s wastelands of hollow men and listen for "the still small, voice," for it sounds forth the truth that makes man free. Man to be free must respond to this truth of life everlasting found in the lengthcontinued on page 11)'

A college newspaper must be an integral part of campus thought. • It must be timely, valuable, and interesting, more than just a portable bulletin with reviews of what has gone on. It must come to grips with basic issues which have to be faced for a meaningful college life, rather than simply seeing the world with (Christian?) rose-colored spectacles. It must point out what is good and meaningful in the college—its faculty, student body and established regulations and pre-suppositions—but in its position of viewing the college situation must also point out through critical, objective thought and writing the areas in which the school is failing to live up to the ideals it claims to have or should have. It is obvious that every institution can improve, and Hope College t is no exception. The anchor, in expressing student views while' valuing the cooperation of the administration and faculty, is in a good position to observe sucb critical iareas. •' .. . . And, most important, the college news-

Last Word This year I share with the seniors the awareness that I have come to the close of a great college experience. There are feelings of regret at leaving one's alma mater, and their is anticipation of new and fine experience ahead. I want to express sincere appreciation for my many fine contacts with - Hope students, particularly those whom I learned to know through the years and to those who have shared in the leadership of the women's organizations and the. Student Council. I t has been a pleasure and a satisfaction to have had these associations. . • We have tried to uphold the traditional high ideals of Hope, of which I believe alumni and former students become increasingly appreciative after campus days. If at times v decisions or regulations seemed or were too strict, the intent was good — to serve the best interests of the individual and the College. As we expect a challenging curriculum, a high level of achievement in music, drama, and athletics, so may we respond to the opportunities for ' spiritual growth, and set for ourselves high social and moral standards. Where we this year have ignored our opportunities-and been content with a lower level of achievement, let this be the challenge to reach for higher goals utider a nevradmmistratiori next s fall. I covet for President-Vander Werf atid for my successor the loyal support of every - student arid member of the faculty in an endeavor to keep Hope- College true lier highest ideals as she move^' toward her second century as a great Christian institu-. tion of Jiigher learning.

Something Wrong? It has always been my contention that one of the essential obligations of every member of a campus community is to aid in creative thinking. Recently I discovered an example of someone's thinking on Hope College, and I believe that perhaps it indicates

a need for a consideration as to just what is being taught, either through instruction or example, that would lead to this reaction. I quote it here: "And what does Hope College mean to me? It means disappointment. . , It means doors which are opened eagerly to find walls made of cheap, practical concrete. J t means a few brave sparks trying to ignite and consume the slime of complacency in which they are snared. It means search, but not beyond our walls — reach, but not above our goals. Hope proudly presents the outsider, the unaware visitor with a set of Christian principles; and the insider with a series of huts and excerpts, and in our opinions, and in the best interests of the college, and in accordance with the policies * of the Reformed Church in America.

paper must present all the significant news with clarity and objectivity. The anchor must strive to live up to all the^e ideals. The 1963-64 school year will be a new year—with a new president, new students and new teachers, plus the old problems which must be experienced and discussed by old and new students who must continue to search for solutions. The anchor will have a new editor, burdened with a lack of experience in giving complete insight. The entire anchor staff will need the cooperation and criticism of all involved— students, faculty and administration—if the anchor is to continue with the high degree of quality to which Gerry Wolf has brought it. •But, like Gerry, when he was appointed editor and a "green sophomore," I too have high aspirations—aspirations all next year's anchor staff shares—aspirations of doing the best we can with whatever talents God has given us to make the anchor a valuable part of college life in 1963-64.—C.M.

and a stuffy apartment, but the people are exchanged. The content is the same: a condemnation of complacency, cruelty and vacuity. As Albee himself states it, "it is a stand against the fiction that everything in this slipping land of ours is peachy-keen." Albee deals with human anguish ultimately, but seems absorbed in playing around with dramatic effects. The play is not realistic, but then it isn't Surrealistic if one can use such univocal terms. The American Dream is by turns ridiculous, satiric, sardonic and even sensibly Surrealistic. The Young Man in a sequence with Grandma gives the essence of the play and simultaneously the malaise of man today. Hope is a facade, and the. pity of it is that the facade is not aware that it is one. The painted mouth says 'We expect much of you, my dear* and the sugar sweet smile says, 'But don't go beyond our expectations.' I am not angry. I feel no righteous indignation. I am only very tired. Double standards are exhausting. C'est ca." Seemingly the writer of this selection came here with questions, with a basic hope of finding answers to these questions, or at least beginning formulations of answers. The catalog stresses the meaning of Hope College. But evidently the meanings are not coming up to the expectations of those who wish to think! to search! to find meanings to their very existence! I, for one, wonder if we are failing these people, and how, and why! DAVID P. KARSTEN, Director of Theatre

Critic's View (Continued from page 10) ening shadows of an almost forgotten and meaningless cross. I have watched the students at Hope College during the last four years and have seen rebellion for no reason; outright disrespect for instructors; little or no responsibility to the uniqueness and aims of the college; and finally little or no thoughtful, honest, and boldly incisive response to matters of significance pertaining to Hope College. If Hope College is "neither confidence nor trembling fear, neither optimism nor pessimism

It is so because we as students have not accepted the challenge this college offfers us as few colleges do: to become whole persons.

Fall and Winter Sports are Reviewed by David Bach The over-all picture of athletics at Hope College this year is encouraging. Both coaches and players of the seven varsity sports at Hope deserve to be commended by the student body for the victories they won for their alma mater. Reflecting over the past year, Gordon Brewer, Hope's athletic director, made the following statement: "We began slowly this year in football and cross-country. The football coaching staff felt that the team was better than the record indicated though. We weren't strong in cross-country at all. Poor seasons in these two sports put us out of the competition for the All-MIAA sports trophy. "In basketball we've come to expect good things every year. (Hope went undefeated in the MIAA this year.) In baseball we even suprised ourselves. Only three times in our history have we won a baseball championship.

^ , A "Our tennis team of course won second place in the MIAA. The golf team took third place this year with most of the team returning next year. TY\e track team took a fourth place again this year, bue we won 10 more points at Field Day this year than we did last. Here again, most of the team members will be returning. "Prospectives also look good for next year. We expect to have the largest returning number of football players we've had in quite a while." What follows is a brief summery of each fall and winter sport: Football Coach Russ DeVette's football team turned in a 3-9 season record this year. Three other games were lost by one touchdown or less. In the MIAA the team fnished 1-4 in fourth place. Coach DeVette made this post-season comment on his team: "They prepared for every game and were ready to win it.

Hope Second in Tennis During MIAA Field Day Runnerup honors were captured by Hope's tennis team last Saturday in the MIAA Field Day festivities held at Calvin's Knollcrest court area. Finalists for the Blue and Orange were placed in every flight, but only Arlyn Lanting took advantage of the situation to become Hope's sole MIAA title winner in the third flight. Kalamazoo, the perennial favorite, seized the title from the Flying Dutchmen by a margin of 18-16. Following these two talented squads, ihe other teams finished in this order: Calvin, Albion, Alma, Olivet and Adrian. Hope's four other squad members, who all succumbed in the final match, were Norm Hess, Butch Hopma, Lance Stell and Bud Hoffman.

Calvin College Wins Track Trophy Hope's track team ended the season Saturday, May 18, with the MIAA field day held at the Calvin field. This meet, determining the league standings, saw Calvin take home the trophy after winning with 77% points. Albion, took second with 51; Kalamazoo with 32; Hope, 24%; Olivet, 18; and Adrian and Alma with 11 apiece. The team performed well throughout the season, ending with a 2-5 dual meet record and taking second place in one triangular and fourth in the field day. Junior Bob MacKay, next year's captain, broke the only Hope record this year with a high jump of 6' 1". Jon Schoon, graduating senior, was voted the "outstanding trackman of the year." Schoon and Dave Bolhuis are the only two members the team will be losing, so prospects for next year's season look promising. Results of the MIAA field day are: Mile run: Hommes (C), Conwell (Al), Miedema (C), Sterk (H), Smith (Alma). 4:23.5. 440 yd. Dash: Pruicksma (C), Comeau (K), Schoon (H), De Young (C), Hawkins (Al). 50.5. 100 yd. Dash: E h y (Al), Klop (C), Lynch (K), Leetsma (C).

of thds year's team. Basketball The basketball team accumulated an over-all record of 16-4 this year. In the MIAA they turned a perfect 12-0 record to capture an undesputed conference championship. Basketball coach Russ DeVette -said upon completion of the season: "We knew all along that our success would depend on everyone and not on any one player. The league championship was truly a team effort. To go undefeated in the league is a real tribute to this team. To win in spite of the lags which inevitably occur is really great and in itself says a lot for this year's team." Seniors Jim VanderHill and Gary Nederveld co-captained this years team. VanderHill and Glenn VanWieren won all-conference first team honors.

the season. It is obvious that Green made excellent use of his young, talented squad which ineluded two freshmen in the top five players. On the spring tour through the Florida area, Hope showed indications of their inherent ability by breaking even on a ledger of tough teams. The final tabulation was four wins and four losses against teams that had been in competition for a month preceding Hope's trip. After the tour, the Blue and Orange launched a determined attack during the regular season competition. This resulted in a 7-1 regular season record. Hope won both n o n - c o n f e r e n c e matches, and then proceeded to triumph over every MIAA squad except Kalamazoo. The overall Hope tennis record for the year thus stands at 11 wins and five losses.
