Guy also holds three Michigan I n t e r s t a t e Speech League Championships in the oratory, debate and extemporaneous divisions. Dr. William Schrier, Hope College forensic director, has likened the winning of these three championships to the winning of the big three of horse racing, the Derby, Preakness and Belmont — all in one season.

Angus, a Junior, who now makes 1 his home in Holland, has had considerable experience in editorial work in the past, and shows a keen desire to be a p a r t of the new journalistic program which will be introduced next year at Hope. Next year's Sports Editor will be Dan H a g a r who served capably in t h a t position two years ago. Last year, Dan was an Associate Editor on the staff along with Ray Vedder. Pat Pickens will be next year's F e a t u r e Writer, while Lee Fasce will assume duties as the new Rewrite Editor. Two new positions in next year's publication will be those of the Society Editors, in the persons of Dorothy Lindahl and Myron Denekas. It will be the duty of these editors to compose his own column each issue consisting of S I G N I F I CANT sorority or f r a t e r n i t y news as the case may be. Their responsibility lies in seeing t h a t each society submits news, and then in sifting and summarizing until an interesting news article is evolved. Continued on p a g e 2

The one thousand dollar bond won by Guy in the finals is in itself only a very small part of the nation-wide prestige and fame he has focused upon himself and hence upon Hope College. The Hearst papers, a chain stretching f r o m New York's Journal-American to the Los Angeles Examiner, all carried f e a t u r e articles in the Milwaukee victory. The Detroit Times showed a banner headline "Michigan Orator Wins U. S. Championship." At Lansing, the state legislature passed a resolution commending Vander J a g t . The subject of all this publicity and of the undeniable excitement t h a t swept the campus, had already won the Michigan finals May 7, defeating an orator from the University of Michigan and consequently the right to represent the midwest in the Chicago zone finals May 15. The subject of Guy's oration was John Marshall. Speaking of Marshall who set the precedent for federal supremacy which our present government has projected into almost every complexity of American daily life, Vander J a g t said, "Thanks to John Marshall, our constitution is not an archaic antique but a living, dynamic document. Marshall infused with immortality the constitution he loved so well." The second place winner, Bob Carlsen, a young Danish e m i g r a n t from the University of California, who spoke with an accent t h a t very effectively complimented the t h r u s t of his oration, drew the favored last position to speak. Guy labored under the added burden of having drawn the number one spot. The Milwaukee audience included Guy's parents and a large number of Wisconsin Hope Alumni. When the decision was announced, the excitement t h a t had gripped them previously, turned into a type of frenzy t h a t resounded throughout Milwaukee. John Ver Meulen of Racine, Wisconsin, opened a direct telephone wire to Hope to announce the victory. Vander J a g t , twenty-one and a g r a d u a t i n g senior, is from Cadillac, Michigan. Planning to enter the Presbyterian ministry, next year he will enter either Yale Divinity School or Union Seminary in New York. The victory, the last and the biggest in a career that started in Cadillac High School and continued since 1949 in Hope College, has included an almost unbroken skein of victories, marred only by one third place, t h a t in the national Pi Kappa Delta extemporaneous championships.

Fraternity Sports Conclude Action

HUNGRY . . . ?


In 1952 Hope dethroned Albion from the position of champion which they had held every year since 1946. The point difference was only four counters as the Dutch sprang a big upset in battling the Britons all the way to eventually topping the scoring. But this year things were different as the Dutch pulled away to a big 18 point bulge in the afternoon's field events and literally won "going away" at night. Hope ended with 82 points to 62 for Albion. Ron Bos was the individual s t a r of the meet for Hope as he once again demonstrated that he is a true champion and repeated his victories of last year in the 100 and 220 yard dashes. Bos was clearly the class of the entire meet as he won both events with ridiculous ease. Running on a slow track, his time of 10.1 for the 100 tied the field record which he already shared, and his time of 22.0 in the 220 would have been even better if there had been anything even remotely resembling competition for him. Hope's big lead in field events was built up by virtue of Bob Hendrickson's first in the shot put with a toss of 42'6"; a third by Don Van Hoeven and a 5th by Don York in the javelin; two men, Wes Sikkema and Carl Van Farowe sharing in a six-way tie for 1st in the high jump in the afternoon's poorest performance at 5'6"; a second by Sikkema, a tie for 3rd by Don Polich and a tie for 5th by Rod Wissink in the pole vault; a surprising "grand slam" in the discus with John Brannock winning with a heave of 123'6", Ken Bauman taking second and F r a n k Talarico a 5th; and victory by Walt VanderMeulen in the broad jump (his second year in a row) a t 20'9" with Talarico taking a 4th. In the running events, the Orange and Blue picked up their points in addition to Bos' by Jesse King's 2nd in the mile and in the twomile; Dave Hondorp's 2nd in the 440; Carl Van Farowe's 3rd and Don Brookstra's 5th in the 120 yard high hurdles; Carl Schroeder's 3rd and Byron Aldrich's 5th in the 880; another "grand slam" in the 220 yard low hurdles as Carl Van Farowe picked up a 2nd, Jack DeWaard a 3rd and Dave Hondorp a 4th; and Hope's second place mile

IT'S A STEAL! You and two or more friends can each save 25% of regular round-trip coach fares by traveling home and back together on Group Plan tickets. These tickets are good generally between points more than 100 miles apart. Or a group of 2^ or more can each save 28% by heading home in the same direction at the same time . . . then returning either together or separately.
