Miss Elizabeth Oggel, formerly an English instructor at the University of Iowa, has been engaged to teach in the Hope English dep a r t m e n t during the coming year. Miss Oggel received her A. B. degree from Momingside college, Sioux City, Iowa, and her masters' degree from the University of Iowa. Following her graduation from the latter, she spent four years as instructor of English in the university. Paul Brouwer, assistant to President Wynand Wichers, has been granted a term's leave of absence to continue his studies at the University of Chicago. Mr. Brouwer holds a scholarship from the general education board. Don Zwemer, former Hope college band director, has been recently appointed director of all men's housing. He will work in cooperation with the administration and the regular faculty advisors. Van Vleck Hall, private student residences, and f r a t e r n i t y houses will be under Mr. Zwemer's supervision.

The For Girls' Rushing New Girl's Dorm Announced by East 12th Street Prexy Will House 13 Ruth Williams, president of PanHellenic, has announced revised r u sh i n g rules to be observed by sororities this year. The new system, drawn up before the close of school in June, is expected to be a decided i m p r o v e m e n t over old methods. The Pan-Hellenic rushing code follows: 1. The first Saturday afternoon of the school year a Round Robin tea will be held for new girls in the society rooms. 2. No society as a group may entertain at an evening rushing p a r t y . In place of this event each society may hold one afternoon function in its own society room. 3. Formal bids may be sent out any time a f t e r the fourth Wednesday of school. An indication of acceptance, refusal, or a desire on the part of the girl to wait in her decision is to 'be in the hands of the society presidents before the regular society meeting of that week. Girls are not obliged to pledge at this time; bids may be sent throughout the year. 4. There shall be no large or "showy" pledging parties, in order to put less emphasis upon that day. New members are therefore to be pledged at the r e g u l a r societymeeting, in the society room the fourth week of school; or they may be admitted at any regular meeting thereafter.

"Too Many Girls" at Voorhees Hall, girls' dormitory, have made it necessary for the college administration to lease the house at 51 East 12th St., belonging to William Arendshorst, as a rooming house for 13 girls during the school year. Mrs. John Van Zomeren will serve as house mother and the girls will take their meals at Voorhees Hall. Some girls who have been accommodated in private homes will also eat at the dormitory. The house, which has been occupied by the D. H. Vande Bunte family, has been newly furnished by the college to assure the occupants pleasant, comfortable surroundings.

The appearance of the brilliant young pianist, Shura Cherkassky, in Hope Memorial chapel on Oct. 31, will open a concert season of four well-rounded p r o g r a m s of artistic entertainment offered to local music lovers by the Cooperative Concert association. The concerts for the 1941-42 series have been selected by the committee with an effort to please different types of concert goers. Harriet Henders, talented young American soprano, will appear on Nov. 26, the Trapp Family choir on J a n u a r y 14, and Mildred Dilling, woman harpest, on March 24. Cherkassky has appeared in Town Hall in New York with great success and has been recognized for his virtuosity. His own concert grand piano which he takes with him on tour will be used for his recital here. Miss Henders had the distinction of being chosen for the leading operatic role of "Fidelio" in the Salzburg festival by A r t u r o Toscanini prior to the outbreak of the European war. Because of world conditions and the discontinuation of the f a m o u s festival the young singer has remained in the? United States where she is continuing her musical career in opera, in concert and on the air. The T r a p p singers a r e a family group composed of the wife, five daughters, and two sons of Baron George von Trapp and led by t h e gifted young composer. Dr. F r a n z Wasner.

Music Department Is Expanding Music Students Will Form New Group Hope will enroll more students in the department of music this year than in any other year in the recent history of the school, according to Mrs. W. Curtis Snow, instructor in organ. The increase will affect study in voice, organ and piano. The department will be expanded to accommodate this revived interest in musical work. J a m e s T. Mearns, director of band and orchestra, will conduct a class in instrumental playing. A class in sight singing and ear training will also be introduced. The latter course is intended f o r the average layman student who wishes to gain a general knowledge of music but does not intend to specialize in t h a t field. Mrs. S n o w also stated t h a t Robert Cavanaugh, instructor in vocal music, Mr. M e a m s , and she hope to organize all music students into a group which will have its own program and which will t a k e over responsibility for much of t h e musical p r o g r a m s on t h e campus.

Dear Editor.

Let's h/iake It Good, Anchor Toasts New Year Once again we begin a new school year, some of us for the last time, and some of us for the first time. Those of us who are completing our school life realize what a great deal the past three years have meant to us. That old lump sticks in our throat when we look forward to commencement exercises and final departure from school days. For those to whom college is novel, the year is clouded with an atmosphere of glamour and excitement. The frosh anticipate those advertised assignments sweetened with fun galore. But to all of us, this school year means one more year of preparation for life. And in the midst of hardships and deprivations, we appreciate the opportunity to attend school. So let's toast to the school year of '41 and '42 — may it be entirely successful for Hope college, its faculty, and its students.

Enrollment at promises to be the largest in the history of the school. Although the withdrawal of many male stud e n t s to e n t e r a r m y and navy service will decrease considerably the number of upper class students, new students are so numerous that t h e r e is an increase r a t h e r than a decrease over last year. T h r o u g h last S a t u r d a y , there were two hundred f o r t y - t h r e e men and women who had shown intention of e n t e r i n g Hope for the first time. Of course, one hundred-one were f r e s h m a n girls and ten were t r a n s f e r girls. T h e r e were one hundred twenty-one f r e s h m a n boys and eleven t r a n s f e r boys. When r e g i s t r a t i o n is completed this week, these n u m b e r s a r e expected to be considerably swelled.
