Official Publication of the Students of Hope CoUege at Holland, Michigan "The sole purpose of any military organization is to he prepared to win battles for its country at any time"—Capt. D.F. Patterson, commanding officer, U. S. S. Wyoming, speaking. A f t e r even 30 days on a demilitarized ship of the United States Navy, I realize to the greatest extent t h a t the emphasis in the foregoing statement is on the word "prepared". There are few men in the fighting forces who would welcome a fight, but on the other hand they prepare themselves constantly so that they may be ready on short notice to issue more death in the form of accurately-fired 1000-lb. projectiles than any possible opponent can return. In the navy, pay rates depend largely on ability to fight: Each member of a gun crew is given a $15 bonus if his turret wins an " E " for efficiency, while the trainer and pointer of the crew, who are the men who actually aim the gun, receive | 5 additional pay per month for a year. Fighting ratings are worn on the right arm as an honor, while others are left-arm rates. PREPARATION IS UEPRESSINf; BUT NECESSARY This constant preparation for killing is depressing to one who is not accustomed to military life, but one cannot help realizing at a time like this the truth contained in Washington's statement, "To be prepared for war is the effectual method of preserving peace." Preparations for war in the form of national defense are now going forward rapidly, but none too rapidly in consideration of the seriousness of the international situation. Top speed and efficiency in a national defense program do not go together; how much better it would have been to have maintained our defenses a f t e r the World war, made advances with the development of military strategy and thus have saved ourselves our present embarrassment.

HOPE HOLDS 78th CONVOCATION Anthony Pennings, Popular Student, Claimed by Death


Everett Dirfesen Speaks at Annual Convocation •


Philosophy Senior Was PiKap Proxy, Blue Key Man, and Scholar Anthony. Pennings, Jr., son of Rev. and Mrs. Anthony Pennings, Reformed church missionaries at Kuweit, Arabia, died of a heart attack in his sleep at the Emersonian house, August 14, 1940. "Stretch" would have been a senior at Hope this year. He was found dead in his bed at 9:30 A. M. by his roommate, Don Sager. Dr. John K. Winter, Ottawa county coroner, established the time of his death at approximately 4:30 A. M. due to a severely weakened heart c o n d i t i o n caused by too rapid growth and vigorous summer employment. Pennings appeared in excellent health and spirits and complained only of being tired the night of his death. Short Service Held Rev. Van't Hof of Third Reformed church and Dr. Walter Van Saun of Hope college officiated at a short, but impressive, service at Nibbelink-Notier f u n e r a l chapel, Thursday, August 16. Members of Blue Key, Emersonian, fellow collegians, townsfolk, and relatives filled the small chapel. H e r m a n Naberhuis, sophomore, sang "City Four Square" accompanied by Don Sager. The body, accompanied by Prof. Vander Borgh, was shipped to Orange City, Iowa, where a complete service was held.

True Citizens

The enthusiasm which was demonstrated throughout the country on the P r a y e r for Peace day, Sunday, September 8, is a strong indication that Americans are still anxious to keep war from our shores. Likewise, the enthusiasm, or at least the almost complete lack of criticism, for Congressional national defense measures indicates that our people also stand for preparedness. From this we gather that the average American is hopeful that World War II may be ended with a just peace without involving his own people in its hatred Hope College has always had a and bloodshed, but at the same time is determined t ^ J i g h t , good band, either under the direcif necessary, to defend his home from attack.

We always have the duty of patriotic citizenship. The kind consideration of our legislators for our welfare makes it doubly our duty to stand by our government. We can serve America by praying for our country's safety and welfare and by doing our bit willingly to cooperate with our national leaders in preparing to meet any eventuality. That means preparation spiritually and morally as well as physically and economically. This is our duty. Perhaps next July some of us will be called upon to serve farther. If that happens, we should respond like true citizens, for that also will be our duty. — MILTON VERBERG.

When the late W. Curtis Snow came to Hope in 1929, the music department reached its height. Mr. Snow was the first organist and organ teacher at Hope College and did splendid work in that department. Under his direction, the Civic Chorus, the Chapel Choir, and the Men's Glee Club gave many excellent performances. When Mr. Snow died in 1935, his place was taken by Kenneth Osborne, a young and talented organist from the University of Michigan.

Austrian Boys Feel America, H o p e are O.K.

"I want to say how glad I am to be in a f r e e country once again and t h a t my hope and prayer is t h a t it will remain so," stated Paul Fried, one of two Austrian refugees who have enrolled a t Hope f o r the coming year. His partner, Paul Gottwald, chimed in to say, "Yes, that is exactly how I feel." The two young men, who had never seen each other before they met in Holland last week, both fled Austria following the G e r m a n "anschluss." Both are protestants with a small amount of Jewish b l o o d , but have very different stories to tell. Surprised o.i Trip Gottwald is a native of Vienna, having lived there all his life up to 1938 except for two months which he spent studying in England in the summer of '37. In the fall of t h a t same year he entered the University of Vienna. During a short vacation in March, 1938, he was making a skiing tour with several friends in the Austrian Alps. One day the group descended to a small village to meet an expected friend. "Instead," he says, "we found swastikas on all the houses. At a village inn we were told that a Nail had been accepted in the Austrian cabinet by the order of Adolph Hitler. We took the first train back to Vienna, only to find German tanks rolling into our capital and Nazi bombers roaring overhead. Immediately l o o t i n g of Jewish shops began and pandemonium broke out in the city." When calm was partially restored, Paul resumed his studies. In June, he was told that he would not be able to return to the University in the fall. He had "Jewish blood in his veins." He began at once to try to leave Austria to go to England, but could not get a passport until he convinced the German officials that he would be back within six months for possible call to military service. Then he c o u l d not get a visa until the English consul was assured by the American consul that Paul would be included in the American immigration quota. He finally managed to leave Austria in September, 193H. He was in England over a year before he got his American visa and sailed for America in November, 1939. He worked in New York, first as a Fuller brush salesman, then as a typographer until he came to Holland.

Hi, Gang — Welcome back to Hope and Sib. To you, Frosh, we send our greetings. It is with t h e warmest of welcomes t h a t we greet you. May one and all feel the friendliness which pervades at our college. At the final meeting before vacation, Eloise Boynton was elected President, and Edith Rameau, VicePresident. Junell Vander Linden is the "pen-pusher." Ann De Young, the Treasurer, will see that we are kept out of " t h e red." (I hope, I hope, I hope.)

The Dorian Society got off to a grand s t a r t on the year's activities with a slumber p a r t y at Virginia Muller's cottage. The afternoon was spent in hiking and "jam sessions." A f t e r a pot-luck dinner a short business meeting was held which soon adjourned in f a v o r of games and more " j a m m i n g . " A f t e r a somewhat slumberless night, the girls proceeded to convocation in the chapel. New society officers are: President, Virginia Muller; Vice-President, Ruth De Young; Secretary, Kay Douma; Treasurer, Bernice Oatman. The Dorian Society was organized in the fall of 1921 by the girls of the f r e s h m a n class, under the sponsorship of Miss Laura Boyd. Dorian has always been proud of its alumni and is proud to be a part of Hope College and all that she stands for. In the name of Hope, Dorian again greets old Hopeites and with the best of wishes we salute you, newcomers!

Welcoming the incoming class of 1944 is a very pleasant occasion f o r the members of Sorosis, the oldest women's society on the campus. It was founded in 1906, originating from the Minerva Society of Hope Academy. Since that time t h i r t y f o u r f r e s h m a n classes have entered Hope, and by their attendance here have enriched both themselves and the college. At the final meeting before the summer closing a s l u m b e r p a r t y was held at a Lake Michigan cottage, and the following were elected officers for the opening term of this school y e a r : Jean Wishmeier, president; M a r t h e n e V a n D y k e , vice-president; Mary Ruth Jacobs, secretary; Peggy Hadden, t r e a s u r e r ; and J u n e Baker, sergeant-ata r m s . Sorosis meetings are held in their newly r e d e c o r a t e d room in Voorhees Hall and will probably be called shortly a f t e r the opening of the college.

Happy New Year, F r o s h ! This is Delphi holding forth (Delta Phi Sorority to you). And to you belles of y e s t e r y e a r thrice welcome to Hope's campus. All is set for the best year ever — our only complaint being t h a t right now you Freshmen are absorbing the spotlight which we upperclassmen have been brought up to believe w a s ours. Never mind,' we like your looks, too.

The Alethean L i t e r a r y Society welcomes all new s t u d e n t s to Hope College, and wishes them all success and lots of fun during these first few weeks of school. We're all glad to be back in these old halls ourselves and a r e looking forward to g r e a t times at our meetings and parties. The Aletheans are expecting a great year on Hope's campus. Our new president is Pearl Laman, a senior from Oostburg, Wisconsin. Our other officers a r e Mildred Dekker, Vice-President; Henrietta Brouwer, Secretary; and Anita Vogt, T r e a s u r e r . These girls especially will be happy to meet you all, and will t r y to make these first days good ones. We have planned many good times for the coming year, including the entertainment of the newgirls on the campus. Interspersed between the big affairs are teas, breakfasts, and smaller parties too numerous to mention. Oncfe more we say, "Welcome to Hope" to all new students, and "Hello again" to all our old friends. We're goi^g to help make this year the best year yet for everybody on Hope's campus.

Hail to a g r e a t new college year, and a h e a r t y welcome to all t h e new students—and to those r e t u r n i n g , we are glad to see you back. Knickerbocker takes this space to welcome all new men to m a k e themselves a t home when you visit the Knickerbocker F r a t e r n i t y house at 94 E. 9th Street. There you will be able to make new friendships as well as see your classmates in their fraternity retreat.

Established in 1919, Sibylline again enters another year which we know will be a happy one for everybody. Each year new Sibyls are taken in to share the treasures of friendship and pledged to live our ideals of love and loyalty, sincerity and t r u t h . Active in college affairs, holding a high scholastic record, Sibylline looks forward to this year as much as the Frosh seem to be.

We are proud of our long record of service to the school and of our alumni.

And now — here's the high-up on the Deltas: Last night we held a slumber-party-in-name-only as t h e first meeting of what promises to be a busy year. Ruth Schuitema, our new executive, presided with her usual sparkling effervescence. M a r j Last and Doris Van Lente, ably assisted as vice-prexy and Madame Secretary. And Beth Marcus occupied herself guarding our bankroll. So, without going back to the archives to list our glorious p a s t , and not daring to cast a horoscope for the f u t u r e . Delta Phi sincerely hopes to maintain her old loyalties, renew old friendships, form newones, and seek t h a t wisdom not found in books.

K.H.N., t h a t being. Social, Moral, and Intellectual, is raised to its full sway. The Social p a r t of the triumvirate is particularly important in the fall, because it serves as a stepping stone to weld the men together and make way for t h e other integral p a r t s of college curriculum. So we join the other f r a t e r n i ties in bidding every student, welcome to Hope College. For the fall term, A r t h u r Kronemyer is the wielder of the official gavel, with Charles Ridenour as Vice-President. Edward Klaus was elected Secretary and Bill McGinnis as Treasurer. Bob Spaulding is in charge of the rushing activities with H a r r y Knudson as his assistant.
