Arcadian Quartet Represents Hope On Concert Tour Miss Schuppert Schuppert Granted Leave of Absence Many students may have wondered why they haven't seen Miss Mildred Schuppert. Hope College cashier, on campus. Miss Schuppert, who is known affectionately by all students as "Milly," has been granted a leave of absence for one semester to attend the University of Michigan Library School. Miss Schuppert, a native of Waupun, Wisconsin, moved to Holland in 1932. She received her A.B. degree from Hope College in 1931. Very much interested in music, she studied organ under the late Prof. Curtis Snow for five y e a r s .and has served as organist of Central Park and Third Reformed churches d u r i n g the past f i f t e e n years. Before being affiliated with Hope College as cashier, she acted as secretary to the president for nine years., Upon completion of her semester's work at t h e University of Michigan, she will return to assist in Hope's rapidly expanding library.

The A r c a d i a n Four, popular campus q u a r t e t last year, made an extensive concert tour immediately a f t e r the close of the school year. This quartet, consisting of men from the Arcadian Fraternity, was selected to represent the school as the Hope College Q u a r t e t ; the tour being sponsored by the school. The group consisted of Bill Miedema. Grand Rapids, first tenor; Ken Leestma, Grand Rapids, second tenor; Warren Hietbrink Worthington, Minnesota, baritone and Bob Schuller, Alton, Iowa, bass. Accompanying the group as organist and pianist was Sam Posthuma, of Friesland, Wisconsin. The tour took the boys through Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, and California. At least one appearance was made in each of these states. The quartet was met by fine, enthusiastic audiences, and made many valuable contacts with friends of Hope College t h r o u g h o u t the country. The object of the t o u r was to establish a closer relationship between the college and some of its more distant supporters. The quartet was not sent out to solicit f u n d s for the school, nevertheless, the offerings received were sufficient to cover all expenses of the tour,

Blue Key Opens In New Location The Blue Key Book Store is open for business in its new location, the large room across from the Coffee Kletz in Van Raalte Basement. With the increased floor space and some new display cases the store has taken on a new appearance. The Blue Key Honor Fraternity is running the store again this year with Chester Droog acting as manager. As in other years all profits that the store makes will be used for improvements around the college. In order to render first class service to the students the Fraternity has hired five college men who will work part time as clerks in the store. This help plus the help of the F r a t e r n i t y men will provide clerks enough to keep the store open for business from H:00 A. M. to 12:00 Noon and from 1:00 P. M. until 4:00 P. M.

1947 Milestone According to Howie Koop the 1!>47 Milestones are well on their way at the printers. The time they will be ready is dependent entirely on how fast the printers work. It will probably be around mid-October. The books will be mailed to graduates. A satisfactory settlement will be made on the q u a r t e r s deposited by underclassmen.

Prof. Gringhuis

Hope College opened formally yesterday with the addition of thirteen faculty members and with an enrollment that promises to equal or s u r p a s s last y e a r ' s record. Many of Hope's d e p a r t m e n t s have been enlarged during t h e past summer and a wide variety of courses are offered for this coming semester. Gringhuis Hope's new Art Department will be under the direction of Mr. Dirk Gringhuis, native of Grand Rapids.

His paintings have been on exhibition in the Grand Rapids Art Gallery and in the Scarab Club in Detroit, where he was the youngest member.

De Graaf Relates Events of Tour Dr. De Graaf recently returned from a four-week tour of the Netherlands and was full of stories of his interesting visit. He accompanied the winners of the essay contest sponsored by the Holland Centennial Commission last spring. This was a nation-wide contest foi high school and college students. Three from high school and three from college were awarded the Netherlands tour. No one from Holland was a winner, but two Irand Rapids students made the trip. Dr. De Graaf and p a r t y landed in Amsterdam aboard a Royal Dutch Airliner. During their stay in the Netherlands they lived iti Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam, Arnhem, and Leeuwaarden. Government cars took them on trips through the surrounding territories. They always had private chauffeurs and private guides. The schedule of where they would be and what they would see during their four-week stay had been carefully worked out by the Netherlands Tourist Bureau. They returned aboard the S.S. Veendam. Their ten-days on the ship included a stop at Southampton, England. The i n t e r n a t i o n a l educational movements in the Netherlands were of particular interest to Dr. De (iraaf. The University of Leyden offered a special architecture and history of cities course. Lec(Continued on P a g e Five)

Greetings Frosh

Our Task The task in which we are engaged is not the mere perpetration of armistice terms, not the mere cessation of a period of armed conflict, not t h e mere preparation f o r another interval between European wars. T r u e peace is not the mere absence of war, but a positive and actively beneficial s t a t e of affairs. And so the ultimate task before us is nothing less t h a n creating the f r a m e work f o r a renewal of European civilization, but civilization in "larger freedom." T h a t is a noble enterprise. It is f i t t i n g t h a t countries like the United States should make their contributions to this great objective. We are inheritors of European civilization, and in a sense t r u s t e e s f o r it. In t h e field of a r m s we have twice gone to .Europe to redress a balance heavily tilted in f a v o r of t y r a n n y ; our contributions in the field of social and economic well-being may equally help to prevent the u t t e r disaster of another European war.


Your Treasure House It was told on the 626th night of t h e Arabian Nights t h a t when All Baba uttered the magic words, "Open Ses; me," and the great door swung open he found a spacious, well-lighted cavern, containing rich bales of silks and carpets, gold and silver and gems in great heaps. A f t e r many e cciting adventures, the wealth of the cavern became his property, and he lived in great splendor to enjoy it. Today, we want to u t t e r those same words, "Open Sesame," and to pass into a modem t r e a s u r e chamber, and share with you some of tlie wonderful t h i n g s there. This treasure room is but a few hundred yards from here, and it is piled high with treasures gathered f r o m all over t h e world by the honest and sincere labor of many men during several generations. For years this wealth has been accumulating in our

We dare not accept the cynical view t h a t history must, of necessity, repeat itself. The fact t h a t the war chapters of history have been repeated in the past is largely due to the lack of foresight on the part of some of those who imposed the peace. We m u s t build a peace based on social justice and economic betterment. Only by such a peace can freedom f r o m f e a r and freedom from want be ultimately assured to the men and women, and particularly to the children of the world.

July quickly passed with August on its heels, and I anxiously awaited the opening of college as September came into view. But all too quickly I found myself on T H A T Sunday with my clothes all packed and ready f o r the morrow's new experiences. Now, t h a t lump which three months previous could not be forced to appear, suddenly choked me as I thought of leaving my home, my f r i e n d s and beginning a new life. I recall as if yesterday, how my sister who was about to enter her junior year at Hope, and I gathered in my mother's room and I asked her whether we HAD to go to college

As I boarded the train foi Holland and bravely waved f a r e well to my parents, I felt af though I were passing on to a new continent, and I choked on a cowardly sob which had underhandedly broken out. I finally arrived in Holland and went directly to the dormitory. I went into my assigned room and found a small dark room, practically b a r r e n except for someone's luggage scattered from one end of the room to the other. I took one look at my " y e a r ' s residential plan" and quickly walked down the hall. Someone t h e r e introduced me to a thin girl dressed in a g r e y suit.

She had a Joisey accent and turned out to be my roommate! Her first impression of me was my bright corduroy dress. In fact that same bright red corduroy dress may have formed many impressions in the next few days, for Fate was with me. I found myself a college student at Hope College clad in nothing but a red corduroy dr ess for three days. You see, my t r u n k s were misplaced and I had a suitcase full of sweaters, but no skirts, no other dresses, no sheets, pillowcases, towels and washcloths, nor blankets. Even my coats had not put in an appearance. I was more than ready to take the next train home f o r good. When everyone was dressed in sportsclothes, I wore saddles and — my red corduroy dress. When the girls were dressed for a f o r m a l occasion, I wore pumps with — my red corduroy dress. But now I can look back on my green f r e s h m a n days and laugh at my calamities, f o r I realize t h a t things happened like t h a t to f r e s h man girls y e a r s before I entered college, and will still be happening years a f t e r I gra dua te .

The Emersonian F r a t e r n i t y -ex-. tonds I.oarty welcome to all new and old students on Hope's campus. The y e a r 1947-1948 promises to he a school year filled with g r e a t opportunities and possibilities. (Mans for the year include the usual r u s h i n g meetings t o which all new men are cordially invited, the r e g u l a r literary meetings, partics, and participation in all college functions. E m e r s o n i a n s will bo found active in all ftelds of endeavor w h e t h e r it be in t h e realm of sports, dramatics, music, scio ice, or scholastic a t t a i n m e n t . Realizing the r e s p o n s i b i l i t y placed upon it as a leader on the campus, Emersonian will be guided by its motto of "Love, Honor, Success." Upon these t h r e e cardinal points we will build toward a better college and a better world. To that end will our literary meetings bo directed, but always with the proper a m o u n t of humor and song, without which the world would soon be dead.

The Knickerbocker F r a t e r n i t y , seeking" to promote a f r a t e r n a l spirit a m o n g not only its members but also t h e entire student body, has whole heartedly and enthusiastically entered into campus activities a g a i n this year. In the line of activities, each semester is climaxed by t h e formal p a r t y preceded by informal affairs within the f r a t e r n i t y . The i n t e r - f r a t athletic contests serve as a g r e a t e r stimulus f o r co-operation with each other. This y e a r the Kappa E t a Nu F r a t e r n i t y is looking forward to a most successful season. Rushing of new pledges has begun as have plans for special meetings. Installation of officers is scheduled f o r the f i r s t meeting, to be followed by a period Oi general planning. Included in this year's plans is the publishing of—a* year book for alumni and a review of . the past history of the f r a t e r n i t y . From time to time it is planned t h a t entertainment p r o g r a m s will be put on for the f r a t e r n i t y . o

Arcadian Cosmopolitan The Arcadian F r a t e r n i t y has the distinction of being the youngest f r a t e r n i t y on the campus, being organized last October. In spite of its youth, the f r a t e r n i t y has already proven its ability to hold its own against the other f r a t e r n i t i e s . Last year members of the society won the top three places in the annual men's Oratorical Contest. The Arcadians held a completely formal party, and the event was a notable success. Arcadian athletic t e a m s competed against t e a m s from other f r a t s , and won a fair share of victories. The climax of the first Arcadian year occurred when the (llee Club won the firstplace trophy at the annual interf r a t e r n i t y sing.

"Friendship, Truth and Progress." These three words have held sway over many people in the past, present and will in the f u t u r e . On Hope's campus a group of male students have adopted these words as an immortal motto and have engaged themselves in the task of keeping these words sacred at all times. Phi Kappa Alpha has always enjoyed co-operating with the other campus societies in forwarding community spirit and in welcoming new students to the Alma Mater. The Cosmopolitan society is proud to be able to again continue as a leader in Hope's activities such as i n t e r - f r a t e r n i t y sports, All-College Sing, student programs The Arcadians are looking for- and many other campus events.
