Yonker Says Council Plans New Projects Nick Yonker, President of the Student Council, announced recently t h a t the council this year will commence work on several new activities. The first and perhaps most important project will be the ratification of a new student council constitution. Last spring the old constitution was extensively revised by a committee of students and faculty appointed for t h a t purpose. Prior to the formal ratification, the student body, through class meetings and other student activities, will be given a chance to examine and discuss the proposed revisions. The final vote for ratification will be taken on or about October 10. The Student Council, which is in charge of the election of class officers, has formulated a definite procedure f o r the running of the class elections. The program will be presented to the student body in class meeting to be held during the week of September 26. The new requirements were formulated to meet student demands for more efficient and industrious class leadership. The Student Council, in order to promote a closer relation between the students and their council, has decided to place suggestion boxes at various points on the campus. The boxes will serve as one means of keeping the council in vital contact with the problems of the student body. f i n a l l y , in order to keep the student body aware of the actions of the council, an article entitled "YOUR Council" will be run in each edition of the ANCHOR. It will contain information r e g a r d i n g w h a t the council is doing, w h a t it has donp. and what it intends to do.

Central speaker at the 85th Convocation service held in the Hope Memorial C h a p e l yesterday was Dr. Bernard J . Mulder, Executive Secretary of the Board of Education of the Reformed Church of America. He used as the title of his address, "A Kite Across the Niagara". Dr. Mulder's past experiences include being pastor of the Bethel Reformed Church of Grand Rapids and having editorial posts on the Religious Digest and the Intelligencer Leader, now known as the Church Herald, official organ of the Reformed Church. Dr. Irwin J . Lubbers presided a t the service. Dr. Jacob Prins, VicePresident of the General Synod of the Reformed Church and Dr. Edward Dimnent, President Emeritus of H o p e C o l l e g e , also occupied places on the program. Dr. Dimnent read the Scriptures and Dr. Prins led in prayer and gave the benediction. Mrs. George Lumsden, the f o r m e r Myra Brouwer, Hope '47, sang a solo. o

Haverkamp to Head Counselling Service The counselling service at Hope college is about to be expanded. Professor Harold Haverkamp will succeed Dr. De Graaf as Director of Counselling, and a separate counselling office will be established on the first floor of Van Raalte hall. The counselling service will be expanded to include vocational counselling, health and social problems, and spiritual counselling, as well as the already established service of academic counselling. Pertinent records will be kept in the new centralized office in order to provide an easily accessible file of information f o r the use of faculty, counsellors, deans, and administrative personnel. The new plan also calls f o r some in-service training for* counsellors, to increase their proficiency in handling counselling problems. Dr. De Graaf was Director of Counselling until this time. He originally took this job with the understanding t h a t he would give direction to academic counselling only, until such time as it would be considered desirable to place a full p r o g r a m of counselling in operation on this campus. Mr. Haverk a m p will be relieved of some of his teaching responsibilities in order to accept his new position.

October 8 Is Set As Date For Tea A date of interest to all Sophomore and t r a n s f e r girls has been set — the Round Robin Tea will be held on October 8 f r o m 2 to 5 p.m. A t t h a t time each sorority will be hostess to all of the girls f o r a short entertainment and will serve r e f r e s h m e n t s to the group with them last. The girls will be given a chance to become acquainted with the sororities. P a n Hellenic Board will have its first meeting today at 5 p.m. in the Dorian room. At t h a t time more definite plans will be made f o r the Round Robin Tea and committees set up to t a k e care of the year's work. A n o t h e r m a j o r project will be a series of joint meetings of the sororities and ASA to acquaint t h e f r e s h m e n with the sororities. The Board consists of two representatives f r o m each sorority on campus and acts a s the general governing body of the sororities.

Welcome Back! Once again the doors of Hope College are thrown open wide to receive the education seekers and the educators for another year. To some of us it will mean the reopening of the friendships and acquaintances that were made in the previous terms at Hope. For others it will mean almost complete bewilderment and lack of "know-what". The ANCHOR wishes to extend to returnees a hearty welcome back and hopes that this y e a r will prove to be as h a p p y and worthwhile as last. To those who are appearing on the campus for the first time, we hope that you will enjoy being on campus and will find friends and activities which you will enjoy. There are many outside activities which will want you as a part of them and which you will want to join. We hope you will want to become a "Hopeite" in every sense of the word and that you will find the already established "Hopeites" ready and willing to help. To. the new members of the faculty, we wish to extend an especially cordial welcome. We know that each new addition to the faculty of Hope College is a step in the direction of a more complete and well-rounded education. New ideas and faces are always a welcome factor to any college, and Hope is no exception. We hope that you, top, will enjoy the many student-faculty functions throughout the year. So, whether it's welcome back, or just plain welcome, we are glad you're here and hope that you are glad to be here. D. K.

Education Excerpts f r o m Albert Einstein's autobiography scheduled for publication this fall indicate his feelings on one of the failings of modern American education. The famed physicist states that in his own training the prevailing idea that the important thing in education is preparing to pass examinations bothered him greatly. "This coercion had such a deterring effect (upon me) that a f t e r I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me f o r an entire year." The distinguished German scholar continues, " I t is, in fact, nothing short of a


miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; f o r this delicate little plant, aside f r o m stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom. Without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail." The emphasis in contemporary education is upon such external evidences of learning as the facts crammed into a blue book. Such emphasis has the effect of making these external evidences of learning ends in themselves. But are examination grades sufficient as worthy goals? Einstein asserts they are not. P a s s i n g e x a m i n a t i o n s accompanies learning, but true learning is not always concommitant with favorable examination results. Examinations are by f a r the best method there is of determining educational progress. The conventional system of grading rewards and punishments may even provide a satisfactory motivational impetus f o r some students. But it should be clearly evident that grades are not ultimate goals, that courses credits are not absolute indications of knowledge, and that a sheepskin is not a guarantee of professional success. When these facts are kept in mind, education will have a different meaning. The process of learning will become something more than a methodical memorization of discrete facts, something more than the repetition of a group of meaningless works, and something more than a striving for a certain alphabetical or numerical symbol on a grade card. Study and learning should not be means of obtaining good grades, college credits, or a graduation certificate. Instead, these things should be considered means to the end of true learning and knowledge. It's time that the American student recognizes this distinction and evaluates his education accordingly. o

Our Objectives At the beginning of another year of journa l i s t i c a c t i v i t y , it may be beneficial to enumerate the objectives which we feel the ANCHOR should have. It is impossible to present a complete statement of editorial policy and impossible to designate specific projects, but we can determine the broad basic purposes and p r i n c i p l e s which will serve as our guideposts along the road of editorial decisions. These are our objectives: 1. To provide an organ of information that will accurately present all the news that is beneficial to those who are actively interested in Hope college — the students, faculty, administration, parents and alumni. 2. To provide an organ for the expression of student thought and to unify ideals and objectives. To achieve this objective, we welcome the comments of our readers in letters to the editor. Such expression of ideas often leads to a clarification of objectives. The editor retains the right to reject or edit any communications which in his considered estimation seem unworth of publication. 3. To create a wholesome college spirit and to serve the highest interests of Hope college by maintaining a constant emphasis upon the high ideals which enrich its tradition. As a means of attaining this goal, subordinate aims are to promote and encourage worthy college activities and to promote scholarship. 4. To record in permanent form the history of Hope college; as the most effective way to do this, to utilize the best in journalistic techniques. These are our objectives. We realize that the perfection which they imply is impossible of complete attainment. But it is our high hope that gradually the ANCHOR will more completely fulfill the requirements for an ideal paper.

Campus Mailbox 45 Higashi-machi Mitsuzava, Kanagawa-ku Yokohama May 20, 1949 The Editor Anchor Hope College Holland, Michigan U.S.A. Dear Sir: I happened to meet Mr. Ronald Korver at Meiji Gakuin, Tokyo early this spring, and I am very glad to make an acquaintance with a friend from Holland. He showed me an ANCHOR of Hope College which reminded me of many happy days in Hope. So I am writing this letter to you hoping t h a t this will serve to reach the friends with whom I became acquainted in Holland in 1926-1927. I studied at Hope just for one year and it was rather a short time for me, but I had many good friends among the Hollanders. 1 have never forgotten the friendship and good will which they extended to me, even though I did not have a chance to write them so often. A f t e r I left Hope in 1927, I entered Earlham College, Richmond, Indiana, and graduated from the same college in 1930. Then 1 went to New York and studied at Columbia University for a short time. A f t e r completing my studies there, I went to Europe en route to my country. I was appointed professor of the Manchuria Medical College, Mukden in Manchuria in 1930. Since then I have been working in the same college until I was repatriated to Japan in 1947. The purposes of the Manchuria Medical College were to promote medical knowledge of the Chinese students as well as the Japanese and to improve the sanitary conditions there. So I had many opportunities to contact both Chinese students and Japanese students. All those contacts among the Chinese helped me a g r e a t deal when our families were repatriated from Manchuria a f t e r the end of the war. When we left Mukden, we lost all our things, including the Milestone of 1927 and an address book containing names of my friends in Holland. Therefore, I could not write to those friends in Holland whom I always appreciated f o r their friendships. As soon as I returned to Tokyo, I was asked to work as secretary of the Rotary Club of Tokyo, which has recently been admitted into the fellowship of the Rotary International. I have a college boy seventeen years of age and a daughter six years old and am living in Yokohama. I met Miss Zander here about two years ago and since then we have renewed our old friendship again. With best wishes, I am Sincerely yours, Tadosaku Ito

Hope Alumnus Receives Recognition In Detroit Dr. Millard Albers, son of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Z. Albers of Eldora, Iowa, and graduate of Hope College, received a special recognition in being chosen f r o m eighty applicants to fill the vacancy at the Detroit Woman's Hospital.

Looking Around Boom Year With one of the largest senior classes in Hope's history making its debut this fall, we can get an idea of what the year 1949-50 means to educational centers the country over. This year promises to be a memorable one in the history of American colleges and universities. It is the culmination of the post-war years in higher education. The last of the G.I.'s will leave undergraduate schools next spring, leaving a great gap which will be filled by a horde of teenagers, according to the experts . . .

A f t e r thrashing in its deaththroes, the lamentable student council of last year died an unhappy death. The remains have been buried. Let us hope they have not been forgotten. Students and administration alike have shown a desire for an effective student council. There is only one way to get it, by taking an interest in the activities of the council. Solid support and helpful criticism will do the rest. It can be a great thing. Let's make it one. Good luck, Nick, we're behind you . . .

Jffratpmitfca KNICKERBOCKER Knickerbocker wishes to extend a welcome to all r e t u r n i n g students, and especially to you new Freshmen with whom we expect to become acquainted d u r i n g the coming year. *j

Ever since its founding in 1907 the Knickerbocker f r a t e r n i t y has been one of the organizations ins t r u m e n t a l in making campus life here a t Hope more complete. Its p r i m a r y objectives are the development of the social, intellectual and moral characteristics of its members, which we believe are essential to every Hope College graduate. Last year's activities began with the ' r u s h i n g " of prospective new "Knicks." To familiarize "rushees" with f r a t e r n i t y activities, Knicks held a typical literary meeting. These meetings are opened with devotions, followed by a serious paper and a humor paper. Business m a t t e r s are discussed and the meeting closes with the singing of a few f a v o r i t e songs. The high light of the first semester was the Wint e r P a r t y at the Morton hotel in Grand Rapids.

EMERSONIAN In 1929 the Emersonian Fraternity was founded on Hope's campus. Since t h a t time Emersonian has come to be one of the leading f r a t e r n i t i e s on campus. In past years Phi Tau Nu has taken several honors; among them several times winner of the cup for the All-College Sing and several top honors in i n t e r - f r a t e r n i t y sports. Emersonian and their new president, Bob A. De Young, proudly look forward to the coming year when they will have an opportunity to rush many of the new men on campus to fill their ranks. Rushing season is an interesting one f o r Phi Tau Nu. A fun-packed year is in store f o r all new men and old ones alike. The regular literary meetings have been well planned with plenty of laughs and entertainment. With this entertainment there is always the annual formal winter p a r t y to look forward to, and the spring p a r t y as well. I n t e r - f r a t e r n i t y basketball, track, and baseball will be in the offing for the coming season. It is hoped by all, t h a t Emersonians will again enjoy its respected place on Hope's Campus.

It may surprise you to learn t h a t during the second semester the Knickerbocker f r a t e r n i t y became a " f a t h e r " (by adoption).

With fall here again Sibyllines flock back to Hope's campus with new ideas and renewed eagerness to begin the school year. There's plenty of f u n and frolic slated on the Sibs' '49-'50 calendar. The house p a r t y , the Round Robin tea, and then t h a t f a t e f u l bidding for new sophomore girls a r e firsts on the agenda. H o m e c o m i n g , with sorority floats, alumnae luncheons, and then the big game, a r e "never to be missed" events f o r Sib sisters. Then preparations begin for the winter formal p a r t y ; and a f t e r t h a t there's slumber parties, weekly Friday night meetings, joint meetings with other sororities and f r a t e r n i ties, and holiday parties. Sibyllines are looking f o r w a r d to a wonderf u l year.

This organization, although it has no members now, holds memories, pleasant and eventful, f o r most of the girls on the campus. Alpha Sigma Alpha, the f r e s h m a n girls' sorority, begins anew each fall with interested members f r o m the f r e s h m a n class. Upper classmen help the new girls organize and then step out a s this sorority swings into action with momentum f r o m enthusiasm of a group of girls in their first college sorority.

SOROSIS As the college doors again swing open f o r Hope students, Sorosites are looking f o r w a r d to another successful and wonderful year. The p a s t year has left many happy memories for Sigma members. Whether a p a r t y was a hayseed shindig a t Miller's barn or a journey to a s t a r a t the Country Club, good times were had by all. But parties are not the only things necessary to make a sorority a successful one. The weekly meetings helped to develop a feeling of friendship and cooperation among members. Working together f o r the All-College Sing and the Penny Carnival booth brought satisfaction to all. Sorosites were especially proud as they collected and wrapped boxes of clothing to be sent to needy families. Although all old members will not be returning this year, new girls will help to fill the spaces vacated by those who have left us, and " m a y the r a n k s grow ever stronger." Here's to another grand year for Sigma Sigma!

A. S. A. of '48-'49 looks back on a fall "sock hop," their first date affair, and the diligent effort the girls put into knitting each boy at the p a r t y a miniature sock. And they won't forget the float for homecoming, the All-College Sing — f u n , but fruitless. There was t h a t b r e a k f a s t — alumni affairs the other sororities were having — but A. S. A., without alumni, dined in style. Crowning a year's events was the spring formal, held al; the Morton hotel in Grand Rapids. Good food, flowers, f u n and formals pervaded the atmosphere of genuine happiness. Then each member stepped out, ready to have her place filled this fall with a f r e s h flower f r o m the f r e s h m a n class. DORIAN Inside the cover of the lavenderand-gold bound " D o r i a n Date Book," the student on Hope's campus finds pages crammed with the details of countless good times enjoyed by the thirty-two members of the Dorian sorority. But the p a r t t h a t interests the present members the most and will be of interest to the sophomore girls who join the Dorian fold, are the activities which are in store during the new school year.
