and Milton Hinga's classes to Van Raalte, leaving only Dr. Edward Dimnent's and

Prof. Thomas E.

Welmers' rooms at Graves. In the

•i

vacated space a double office has been built for the registrar. Prof. Welmers will occupy the inner office and his new secretary, Mary liolema, the outer. The unused portion of the second floor hall has been converted into an office for the librarian, Miss Margaret Gibbs. With the removal of all science laboratories and lecture rooms from Van Raalte, it has been made possible to integrate the English and history departments in that building. The former will occupy the old biology and botany labs with the two offices between. Senior chemistry lab on the first floor has been made into a classroom for Dr. Raymond and an office for the history department. The sophomore junior lab is now Prof. E. Paul McLean's room and office. Freshman chemistry lab will soon be the new Commons room, while the office off from it, formerly occupied by Dr. J. Harvey Kleinheksel, has already been converted into a new Blue Key book store. The education department is also now in Van Raalte. The old education building now houses the entire music department. Seven pianos have been moved in and classrooms and studios for Prof. Robert Cavanaugh and Mrs. W. Curtis Snow have been provided. The ANCHOR office will remain in its present location permanently and the Commons room will continue in use until the new one is finished.

W a s Dr. Wichers* The need f o r a new s c i e n c e building was already apparent to Dr. Wynand Wichers when he became president of Hope College m 1931, but a t that time the depression had settled upon the country and a nationwide drive for iunds seemed impossible. But unaaunted. Dr. Wichers had plans arawn and cost estimates made. Then as times began to improve .he Board of Education, R.C.A. ^ave right of way to the building .ampaigns of Central College oi ''el la, Iowa, and Northwestern Junior College at Orange City .owa. Finally, in 1939, the Board ol Education authorized the beginning of a financial campaign with the understanding that it would end with the Seventy-fifth Anniversary celebration in June, 1941. By May. 1940, there were sufficient funds pledged and a t hand to warrant the writing of a contract.

The usual convocation service at the opening of the school year was replaced this morning by the dedication of the new Science building at 10 o'clock in Hope Memorial Chapel. The program climaxed a busy pre-opening schedule which included registration for students and executive meetings for administrators. The surprise feature was the awarding of three honorary degrees. The ceremony opened this morning with an academic procession. The Rev. John R. Mulder, president of Western Theological Seminary, led in a prayer of blessing. Scripture was read by the Rev. Willard Dayton Brown, secretary of the Board of Trustees, R.C.A. Hopkins is Main Speaker The main address of the service was "The Weigh House," delivered by Dr. Louis A. Hopkins, director of the summer session and professor in the school of engineering at the University of Michigan, b r . John A. Dykstra, president of the Board of Trustees, presented the Science building to General Synod, R.C.A., and read the dedication written by Dr. John E. Kuizenga. The Rev. C. P. Dame, vice president of General Synod, accepted the building for that body. Unannounced were the awards of honorary degrees to the Rev. Samuel M. Zwemer, Rev. Anthony Luidens and Rev. H. William Pyle. The last two were campaign managers f o r the Science building drive in the East and Midwest, respectively. They were awarded degrees of Doctor of Divinity. Zwemer's degree was that of Doctor of Letters.

In Ancient Van Vleck Dorm Some upper-classmen will have a difficult time accustoming t h e m selves to the sound of a feminine voice a n s w e r i n g the telephone on rihging 4841. F o r Van Vleck Hall, f o r m e r residence of the demure masculines of Hope, h a s undergone a change in the type of inhabitants. "The Bastille" has submitted to other changes, however. Adorning the entrance is a huge reception room covered with a green carpet. Made f r o m the f o r m e r reception room a n J an additional room, it proves to be the most drastic change in the building. A series j . / e c n y above the table where the telephone stood i n f o r m s one that the individual buzzer system has been installed. A huge davenport occupies a place where A r t Johnson's bed once stood. Should he have been able to glance in the f u t u r e , and observe to what use this position was to be put, who can say that his slumber would have been crowded with scenes of a variety of activities. The s t a i r s leading f r o m the first floor to the second have been -•hanged, m a k i n g the entrance from the hall instead of the reception room. The halls have fluorescent light facilities, and new mats line the hallway on every story. The remainder of the ground floor has been reserved f o r special purposes. The two rooms located on the northwest corner of the building have been changed into a suite, to be occupied by Mrs. A. Krone-

old lavatory is to be used by the matron exclusively. A d j o i n i n g this room, is the infirmary, next to which the n u r s e ' s room is located. All rooms have new linoleum, f a cilitating a t capacity, 44 co-eds. Should Van Vleck be able to tell its story, it would indeed be interesting. It was the only building to escape the fire in all Holland, which ravaged the city when it was young. It also was the embryo of our present Hope College, around which the p r e s e n t college, as we know it, developed. Few f o r m e r g r a d u a t e or underg r a d u a t e residents of Van Vleck will escape the s t r a n g e feeling overcoming one as he walks through the changed halls of Van Vleck. For t h r o u g h the y e a r s several sentimental ties may have impressed themselves upon the h e a r t s of all who have resided there. Replacing the swishing w a t e r and boisterous call, will be the gentle p a t t e r of a co-ed's feet as she scurries in to respond to the telephone at the beckon of the buzzer. Nor will lights, invariably peeping from some window, be there to show t h a t some ambitious collegian is burning the candle at both ends. To these few. memories of Van Vleck will be sweet, and the change more mof an invasion than a peaceful e n t r y .

Advice of Alcor Girl To A l l Ambitious Frosh You f r o s h have all too o f t been accused of being green. But to date have you found any upper classmen willing to help to take a little of the e x t r a gloss off t h a t emerald c o a t ? Alcor gals have f o r jome reason been set up a s the acme of something, and a s such a r e supposedly endowed with a certain amount of wisdom, and boss-man Verburg has u r g e d us to impart a bit of this e t h e r e a l substance to you. Advice is t h a t which everyone is happy to give, but which perhaps is not a l w a y s so well received. Maybe though, we have something here, if we may say so and still speak modestly. Ail-Around Development At this point, you co-eds of this season's vintage are undoubtedly so befuddled by the sudden ons l a u g h t of a t t e n t i o n s and things to do. Maybe it's hard to figure out what is i m p o r t a n t . And maybe we can help. "The development of the well-rounded individual," is one of those educational sounding phrases, but one which packs a good wallop when you think of college aims. So, we speak of the four phases, intellectual, spiritual, social, and physical — not a one to be neglected, not a one to be unduly emphasized j v e r the other. So maybe a word now exorting you not to be swept off your feet by the sudden rush of social activities centered about you will guide you a little.

Hope College Anchor Squad H « Training Camp at Castle

amo^o

For the past ten days the resort ers at famed Castle P a r k have had s o m e t h i n g besides ihi balmy breezes of Lake Michigan to keep them interested. They've been seeing a preview of Hope's 1942 football team. A few weeks ago P r o f . McLean and his p a r t n e r . C a r t e r Brown, invited Coach Hinga tb bring his football boys out to ' t h e Castle" to get in the first important practices before school started. Mr. Hinga didn't take long to accept. Many of the fellows have been eating and sleeping there besides practicing football and just in case you hadn't heard, room and board is "on the house." (Oh, to be a football player!) Coach Hinga says that the week al "the Castle" has done wonders. Besides getting the team into shape physically the past week has put an unusual amount of spirit into the boys. Mr. Hinga's biggest job has been to find and train replacements for the men he lost through graduation and to Uncle Sam. The biggest loss is Bill Tappan, last year's All-MIAA center. At present this problem seems to have been quite well solved by shifting "Hoots" Rowan, a backfield man, to center. Other losses include Bill Hakken, guard; George Vanderhill and Marty Bekken, tackles; "Bud' Morgan, end; and Art Timmer, a speed demon in the backfield. The backfield seems to be Hope's strongest department. Besides the veteran foursome of Davis, Higgs, Karel and DeFouw, there are several Frosh hopefuls from which to choose. These include Dick Loomis from Traverse City, who is an excellent punter and passer; Ted Wiesner, a speedy fullback from (Jrandville; Bud Groendyke, also from Grandville; and Northoek from Grand Rapids. From end to end the starting line will probably be: Niensma, I'ape, Dick, Rowan, Yeomans, Koop and Slager. Freshman Bill Draper from Holland is trying to grab one of the end positions. " B u d " Koranda and Harvey Stahl will keep the two tackles fighting for their jobs, and Wayne Purchase and Arnold Schaap look like the reserve guards. Glenn Bruggers and Harv Buter, a Holland boy, are trying for center. Some of the others who are out for the team are Van Dis, Van Tongeren, Van Den Berg, and De Boer. Despite the fact that he has verylittle r e s e n e material, Coach Hinga has hopes for a good team and feels that the chances for a successful season are "better than good." The first game is with Grand Rapids U., and will be played under the lights in Riverview Park on September 25. Last year Grand Rapids trounced Hope to the tune of 17 to 0. The game promises to be closer this year because the university, although it has twelve lettermen returning, has a very small squad. However, they'll be tough. The next three games will be out of town. Michigan State Normal Oct. 2, Kazoo Oct. 10, and Hillsdale Oct. 17. The last three will be played on familiar soil commencing with the homecoming game with Albion on Oct. 24, continuing with a night game with Grand Rapids JC on Oct. 30, and closing the season on Armistice day against Alma.

Shakespeare said "Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow creeps this petty pace from day to day." Surely there should not be and shall not be anything petty about the pace at Hope this year, whether it be in the line of athletics or some other line . . . Most of us are here in spite of the war and consequently should make the most of our opportunity to attend college . . . Hope's athletes should be training harder than ever before, not only in order to win more games but also to keep themselves in the best of condition. just in case Uncle Sam calls . . . And as for those who aren't athletically inclined, how about some real cooperation as far as the compulsory gym classes are concerned? Surely we can do this bit when so many are being called upon to pay the supreme sacrifice . . . But the question still is, "what of tomorrow?" . . . Does the crystal ball show a football championship? Hardly, but a few breaks would make it close . . . However, championship or no championship, Hope will have a crowd-pleasing team, a speedy, alert outfit that isn't afraid to throw a pass in a tight spot . . . Basketball is a different story. There it looks as if only inexperience can stop us from a title. Sure we're optimistic, but did you ever see a pessimist get anywhere . . . Notre Dame will return to the throne of big-time football although their suicide schedule will probably prevent them from having an unbeaten team. You guessed it, Minnesota for the Big Ten title . . . Of course no resident of Michigan will agree with me but what difference does it make? But what about that most important struggle of all? Is Uncle Sam making any headway? You should be able to answer that one without the help of your humble sports writer . . .

Having year a f t e r year given its best wishes to new students, the society this year again reiterates its f a i t h by offering a warm handshake to all incoming freshmen. From its residential situation at 70 West 13th Street, Cosmopolitan has perennially sent forth leaders in all fields of college activity — leaders who had learned the art of standing on their own two feet and upholding their independence of organized thought and action. It is with these thoughts in mind, that Cosmopolitan President Don De Fouw heartily greets all new students, reminding them again that they are ever welcome at the Cosmo house.
