Life's Investment. "There are several things which a young man should consider before investing his life in any profession because his life is the most precious possession that God has given him. First of all a man should choose his life work in full view of his faith in Immortality. He should always think and plan in terms of eternity and not merely time. Second, a man should settle this In view of Christ. After all union with Christ is the secret of the atonement. A man must learn to play partners with Christ In the game of life. As Paul said, "We live unto Him." Then a young man should settle this question in view of his talents. They are God's gifts, given to mb to fulfill His purpose. There is much danger in an overestimate or an under-estlmate of his talents. He should seek diligently to find what he beet fitted for In life, with God's guidence through prayer. Lastly, he 0 should study the condition of the world and find where the need for men Is greatest. In doing this he will receive a definite call to his life work, whether It be mission work, medicine, law, business or the ministry.

HIS SUBJECT: "AMERICAN STEWARDSHIP , , John H. Albcrs Takes Second Place The final contest to determine who shall represent Hope n e i t year In oratory was staged Thursday night. May 29th, at which time seven men, two Freshmen, two Sophomores, and three Juniors competed in the Annual Raven Oratorical Contest. Gerrit Wesselink,. delivering the oration entitled "American Stewardship", won first place. His plea was for cleaner politicians and for a citizenry that place their country's welfare ahead of personal welfare. Second place went to John Henry Albers with an oration entitled "Our Black Sheep." "The Touchstone of the Nation" was the title of the oration, delivered by Theodore Essenbaggers, taking third in the contest. The other contestants and the titles of their orations were as follows: Neil Van Gostenburg, "The Ku Klux Klan"; Frederick Steggerda, "Building Our Pyramids"; Henry Burggraaff, "National Integrity"; Gerrit Heemstra, "The Principle of American Idealism." Just as the interest has been keen in the numerous eliminations, so also interest in the final competition was at a high pitch, and we are proud to note that there is a growing appreciation among students of t h a t which is really worth while. Besides gaining the honor of representing Hope in the Annual M. O. L. contest next year, Mr. Wesselink receives a prize of thirty dollars.. Second place carries with it a prize of twenty dollars. The judges were: Miss Mabel Anthony, Mrs. G. J. Diekema, 'and Mr. Henry Geeiiings, all of Holland.

Pleasing Program Rendered By Girls

Last Tuesday evening the doors of the chapel were opened so that the School of Music might present Its annual program to the public. The Selections were well rendered and reflected much credit on the students and their instructors. As is usual, the last few rows were the most vociferous In their applause, but the applause was all earned. Jean Bosman and Helene Sprietsema opened the program by playing a light but very beautiful duet entitled "Valse Venetienne". Kathryne Tyner then played the role of pianist In presenting "Pas des Amphores." She was followed by Rutherford Huizenga who sang a love song "To You" and a Banjo song in the negro dialect. Eunice Brockmeler then played a very difficult piece by Leschetzky. Chester Beach sang a true to type "Wayfarer's Night Song" and "Tommy Lad." Carol Van Hartesveld played "Waltz in A F l a f ' ^ a n d was followed by Wilma Van de Bunte who sang "Sleep Little Tired Eyes" and In singing "There Are Fairies" yshe described the antics of the fairies In the bottom of her garden. The quality of Helene Van Kersen's playing when she played "Whims" and Soaring" need not be commented on. Arthur Smith continued the program by singing "Star Eyes" and "The Morning Wind"; and then using the piano as the medium Mary Peters Interpreted. the compositions "Reverie" and "Valse Caprise." Teunis Prins delighted us by singing an old fashioned sailor's song and "Thank God for a Garden." Ruth Hieftje played a colorful piano solo "In Country Gardens." Nella Tanis sang "My Bairnie" and "The Three Riders." Henrietta Keizer continued the program by playing the "Impromptu" by Schubert and "Hungarian Etude." Johanna Boersma concluded by taking Rachmaninoff's place at the Steinway and playing "Polichinelle." 1—o COLLEGIATE CLIPPINGS

GLEE CLUB ENTERTAINS Monday evening, May 2Gth, the Hope college Girls Glee Club offered the music-lovers of Holland a rare treat by giving a public concert. Seated on the platform under a veritable canopy of sprays of appleblossoms, and dressed In their new gowns the girls presented a pleasing program under the able leadership of Mrs. Wm. J. Fenton. The program was interspersed with solos by Martha Barkema and Isla Pruim, readings by Jean Kuyper and a piano solo by Nella Meyer. We feel that the work done by the girls is second to none, and the Club deserves a great deal of credit for advertising Hope College the way it has done this past winter by giving public concerts in various cities in the middle west. o BULLETIN Thursday, June 6th, Y.

MARTIN CUPERY "GRAND HOST9 Toasters Show That They Are Also Skippers To attend the Fifth Annual E m ersonian Banquet was to be thrilled with the value and significance of friendship. At six-thirty, forty banqueteers gathered at the Leland Tea Room, Saugatuck and enjoyed a few hours of entertainment. Music was furnished by a three piece orchestra. Martin Cupery acted as toastmaster. Apropos of the banquet's nature toasts were given to: Friendship—Elmer Van Lare, Sincerity—Richard Van Farowe, Complacency—Ray Klaasen, Self-Sufflciency—Harvey De Bruine and Happiness—Albert B. Grant. A piano solo by John J. Soeter and a cornet solo by Harold Beernink, (A. C. Ungersma accompanist) were added features. Razz chailicterized the toastmaster's remarks and many present were objects of his caustic comment. Speakers of the evening also indulged in much humor and urrrestralned laughter was frequent. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Schouten were chaperones for the evening. o——

THOSE SPRING FESTIVITIES Simultaneous with the term's end comes a season of whirlwind social activity. There is always a body of sentiment which is apposed to this season and seeks to discourage it. The argument is of course that it brings on unnecessary expense and destroys the studious attitude. A serious scrutiny of this oppinion seems fitting. A well known clothing firm refers to its clothes as investments in good looks. So we might refer to these festivities as investments in good experience. It will be experience of inestimable value. It will be experience the memory of which will always constitute a priceless treasury. So our attitude toward the expense is a question of relative values. If there is a drop in scholarship at this time it is because some student has gone to the extremes. If such a . drop should exist it will more than made up for by wholesome recreation for those who are sincerely dedicated to their work. WHAT IS A FELLOW TO DO? Getting out this paper is no picnic. If we print jokes, folks say we are silly. If we don't, they say we are too serious. If we publish original matter, they say we lack variety. If we publish things from other papers, they say we are too lazy to write. If we stay on the job, we ought to be out rustling for news. If we rustle for news, we are not attenting to business. If we don't publish contributions, we doQ't show properappreciation. If we do print them, the paper is filled with junk. W h a t is a fellow to do anyway? Like as not some will say that we swiped this from an exchange. So we did. • • THE INQUISITIVE REPORTER • • • Every Week He Asks Four • Persons, Picked at Random, • A Question.

O THE QUESTION: What was your most embarrassing moment? THE ANSWERS: Martha Jane Gibson, Instructor in English.—Having given the matter

three days of earnest and conscientious consideration, and being one who prizes candor more than popularity with the Inquisitive Reporter or the curious reader, I am impelled to state that my most embarrassing moment is—THIS ONE. Grace Gardei, '25.—My embarrassing moments have been many and varied. Little escapades such as walking into faculty meetings, being called on to recite when one doesn't know one's lesson—they are moments that cannot be forgotten. My most embarrassing moment occurred, tho, I believe, quite a long time ago. An entertainment was being given two nights in the city and I had been asked to go both nights. Believing I would enjoy seeing the production twice I accepted both invitations. The .first night the performance was excellent and I secretly congratulated myself that I was to see It again on the following night. All went well the next night until we were ushered to our seats. As we were about to sit down the usher smilingly said to me, "You come every night, don't you?" That constitutes, I believe, the most embarrassing moment In my experience. o J. H. '25. (Name furnished on request. I. R.)—My most embarrassing moment was the time when I was boarding the train for Holland, from Chicago. The Porter had taken my traveling-bag and was leading us to the car in which we were to ride. I knew I didn't have much money after I had bought the tickets, but I felt in my pocket and was reassured because I felt two coins, enough to satisfy the porter. WTTen he set my grip down, I reached into my pocket and was about to place the coins into the outstretched hand of the porter, when to my amazement I found that it was only two pennies. I didn't want the person with me to know that I was broke, so I with an artlstocratic air placed the sum total of two cents In his hands. He took a couple of steps back, and then disgustedly replied, "What do you think I am a cheap-scate?" In making my last stand I explained to him it was the last two cents I had. We both blushed he, with anger, I, with embarrassment. o Bill Tuttle, '27.—Embarrassing moments are embarrassing things to speak of. To tell of one's most emarrassing moment, might be embarrasing to others. To some the most 'embarrassing moment might be. when they ask their lady friend's father, if he would like to be their father also. If such a moment is embarrassing, then several have been deeply embarrassed this spring. My most embarrassing moment took place years ago. Dad had my hair cut "dead rabbit," I thought in an unchristian way I could get out of going to church, but my mother said "yes". I went, but as I sat there I could feel the eyes of ttose in back of me resting on my hairless head. That was the moment, and the longest moment I ever experienced . o "Peanuts", '26.—It seems embarrassing to tell anybody your most embarrassing moment. But still a person can be proud of having had an embarrassing moment because that, In Itself, Is an evidence of the presence of the culture determiner. In a conference with Mike Mulligan, he said that he had never been embarrassed, although Winnie Winkle admitted that Mike has put her into many an embarrassing situation. In the same way we see, when we look into the history of Maggie Jiggs, that she has been embarrassed many times, and yet not one of us would call her uncouth. In view of the foregoing I would not hesitate to relate the most embarrassing moment of my life. But I must limit this answer to approximately fifty words, so space fails me.

Three out of five people make a mistake by calling me a statistician or saying that I look out for statistics. The variety of the program as presented by the School of Music Is evidenced by the fact that of the twentytwo authors presented only one supplied more than one composition, that one was Schumann the composer of both the pieces played by Holene Van Kersen.

The pafltor of our church often told me I was to slip from the cup of wisdom when I entered college; but, I was grievously disappointed, for there was not even a drinking fountain in the Library of Graves. Miss De Pree was the first smiling person I encountered and she made me feel like an oasis on a desert. Firstly, she asked for my money; secondly, she asked for my name, and thirdly, she asked for my course. Dilapidated and dejected, I turned away for I had no other course to follow. Next I fell into the clutches of the financial mongrels. Money for class, season ticket, lecture course, Anchor, Milestone, Y. M. C. A., and numerous other things were asked for. 1 recall that books and sundries were listed in the college bulletin to the amount of thirty dollars. Ah! I already discover a fallacy at Hope College. Never did I get a pull with the faculty but. the "pulls" at the river were wringing wet with excitement. Under the subjection of Emperor Dimnent and Scribe Wichers I served my time. I made several (?) trips to Voorhees prison to cheer up the unfortunates. The bulletin board sagged on a wall in Van Raalte square and it upheld all the various announcements, with the exception of weddings and the like. Miss Gibson humiliated me, Miss Boyd "Germanized" me, the text-boot agency "discoined" me, and my scholarship horrified me. Purely in sympathy with my endeavors the faculty sheepishly donated me a sheepskin. I ordered my cap and gown at tho Overisel Cooperative Steel works and received iron service. After I was ousted they sent me across the road for three years. 'Nuff said! Thus ended the tale of Sir Humorous Hiccups.
