In addition, four other dormitories are now under construction and it is contemplated that these will be completed and ready f o r occupancy by November 1. These buildings are located on the Columbia Avenue corners. For married veterans the College authorities are providing six buildings, each composed of four apartments. These apartments will be one or two-bedroom apartments and are also scheduled to be ready for occupancy by November 1. Office in Van Raalte Then there is Van Raalte Hall. Offices have been built in this building; the corridors have been widened; and there is a new entrance on the north side of the building. New floors have also been laid in the corridors. These changes have resulted in a much better entrance to the building and interior changes have provided additional classroom space. The college office will be located on the first floor of Van Raalte Hall, together with the offices for the Dean of Administration, the President and the College Treasurer. In addition to these, this building also houses the Registrar's office and Admissions office. But, there must be music! And for this purpose Walsh House, next to the Pillar Church, has been procured and is being fitted f o r the School of Music. Now added glory to Hope's already fine record in the field of music is expected. Dining Hall for S50 No, the needs of the inner man have not been overlooked.

IfaUt* O n Being Educated With the opening of another college year, we a s a group are bound together by our mutual strivings for further education. We extend a welcome to all new students to join in our quest, still remembering tiiat education in itself is no more important or vital than each individual makes it. A person can accumulate credits, but still not acquire an education. It is only by evaluating standards and, if necessary, revising t h e m to meet the new demands t h a t progress is made. The college faculty carried on a project last year in which the aims of the college were considered. Now it is time for us, the students, to continue this study and apply it to ourselves. With the administration, faculty, and students ail striving for a common goal — that of making higher education function as a service for the welfare of the general public — that we can achieve the goal that brands us as being truly educated.

Hello everybody — back in the old groove again and isn't it WONDERFUL. And again this year will give forth with the Yak-Yak on what's going on about the campus so watch your step. You never know who's going to write this column. From all reports everybody had the best summer yet and plans to keep the spirit up through the school year. That means things should really be poppin. The most recent news up to date is the new title Chet Droog acquired the 20th. The coveted title of " P a p a " — the stork delivered a member of the f a i r sex early Friday evening and with her came instructions on how to bring up your girls to be good Hope co-eds. Wedding bells chimed loudest this summer and the Yatita is glad to pass on the news of marriages of Peg Bakalaar to Floyd Dorenbunh (both in Colorado now), Mary Liz Aldrich to our Student Council Prexy and basketball star, Gabby Van Dis (Gabby is incidentally a Kalamazoo boy), exqueen Libby Komaine and our Boy Bill Hillegonds now of Holland, Michigan, Marolyn Sulkera and Benny Weatrate, both of Holland, and Red Wagner and Donna Eby. If we missed any it's purely accidental and we'll give you a plug in the next issue.

to get along with people these years. College extra-curricular activities entered my life with a bang. I knew what I wanted in my studies, and I worked toward that end. June of '46 rolled around and misgivings about leaving Hope entered my mind. I finally graduated on the nineteenth, no longer green, but wise to the ways of the world. (So I thought).^. This fall, I started to teach English (see? still no imagination) and I find that I love i t Yet again September is here, and a new term at Hope has begun. My thoughts are here on campus and I wish once again to be a Freshman — or anything — just to be a Hopeite. Since this is no longer possible 1 wish you all — new and old — the best of luck. Here's thinkin' of

d e s e s s e e s s e e e e s s s e d e s e e e ya'.

lamp shade is cute, the perfume smells divine, and who on earth is t h a t handsome man in that 12 x 12 f r a m e ? I knew he was from out East. They don't grow them that way in Michigan. The white ruffled curtains are nice but why don't you have a colored tie-back. Yes, a blue one to match the bed spread. Remember? Page sixty-seven said harmony and vivacity are what count to liven a place up. Now you've got the trunk unpacked, the books lined up, the ink on the desk, the rug on the floor, the radio looks good by the bed and the chair looks real cozy. Now all you have to do is put a couple plants in the window to make things gay, put a f i f t y cent deposit down for your key, put your name on the door and it is yours f o r a year. Not bad, is it? Just like the room at home. Your roommate not so easy to handle? No, leave that "Analysis of the Personality" book right on the shelf. It won't help a bit. This is your roommate — she's human, you can't pin her on the wall as much as you probably will like to •ome day. I know you've had a rooin yourself all theae years hut now things are different. She's awfully nice and real pretty and she's just aa scared aa you are. All you have to do is get on some subject you both like — f o o d or men are usually good topics and when you find out you detest spinach and red haired men, you're all set.

Yes, a new era has hit Hope and year's seniors. The peace and quiet of the war years is gone (thank heavens), G.I. Joe is back in full swing in the form of sport jackets, bright ties, a "butch" cut, a football team and all other sundry necessities and the blissful co-ed goes around singing "To Each Her Own." I went down and had a meal at Hope's downtown cafeteria yesterday and by the time I walked back to college I was hungry again. It's g r e a t to be lost again. I was looking at Van Raalte with bewilderment the other day and some freshman came up to me and said, "Are you new here t o o ? " All I could say was, "No, but I wish I was." I didn't think it showed that much. The buzzer systems have already been overworked and I understand they are going to install bleachers in Voorhees. I notice one girl in Columbia cottage has a sign on her buzzer, "No more d a t e s accepted till November 1st." I can remember the time when I knew just about everyone on the campus but now it's just a bumping acquaintance with about 900 and the other 100 I meet nothing short of an embrace to show how glad I am to see them. The usual remark to them is "Oh, you're still going here too, h u h ? I hadn't seen you for so long I thought you'd quit." Natch, it's good to be back again even though everything is so new jrou wonder whether you're in the right place or not a 44 Stick by Hope and youll get into the big time." Oh — oh — there comes a freshman with a puzzled gleam in her eye. The question is — will I know the answer?

3888888888888888888^888^ Now you're all set in the dorm Headquarters for . . . but where do you go from there? That's the best part. It's a good idea to say " H i " to everyone, ask ROBLEE, AIR-STEP all the questions you want, and t r y to act as gay and confident as you don't feel. A f t e r the first few days A N D BUSTER B R O W N the smile sticks, the hands stop SHOES trembling and a f t e r your knees subside a little you can walk up straight.

On Tuesday all sorority lists must be handed in to the faculty committee.

Hope's incr^ised enrollment has greatly enlarged the number of classes in most subjects to be offered to Hope's students this fall term. Plans have been made f o r 18 sections of Freshman English Composition. These sections because of the scarcity in rooms available will be spread throughout the day and will necessitate Saturday classwork. In the language department, a third year of Spanish, Spanish literature, will be offered and will be taught b y . Mrs. Peter Prins. Miss Bouvy, from the University of Leydens in the Netherlands, will teach a course in Dutch popular with many students of Hppe with Dutch ancestry. Greek instruction wjll be given by Dr. Kuiper and Dr. Oudersluys, also professors at the Western Theological Seminary in Holland. New in Hope's elective curriculum is a three hour course in aeronautics and a one hour course in flight training which will lead to a government pilot's license. The Hope College Choir will have a regular school hour for practice. Try-outs are necessary for new members in the choir. Also in the music department, a piano ensemble course will be given by Miss Jantina Holleman plus a four student plan of teaching so each can benefit from others criticisms while playing for the instructor.

HOPE DEFEATS FERRIS 38 - 6 T Formation Is Successful

As Hope Builds Up Big Lead The first Hope football squad in three years played the first Ferris football squad in three years and when the final gun sounded tlie Dutchmen had chalked up a neat 38-6 victory. Coaches Al Vanderbush and Russ Waters whipped together a smooth working aggression using the deceptive "T" formation, and ran rough trod over the hapless Ferris crew. From the opening kickoff the Dutch had little trouble, Coach Vanderbush using all 50 of his players. Hope lost the flip, kicked off to Ferris, who moved the ball down to the midfield stripe where a third down fumble gave Capt. Art Timmer and his boys possession of the pill. In four quick runs off the " T " the Orange and Blue chalked up three f i r s t downs, with the plunge over the line from the five yard stripe by Dick Higgs, an all MIAA back of the 1942 squad. Higgs converted and Hope led 7-0 a f t e r 5 minutes of play. Another costly fumble on the kickoff following the touchdown set up Hope's next touchdown. Capt. Timmer went around end for 15 to the 19 yard stripe, and then on a beautiful off puard through a battleship hole over the goal for the second score. Higg's attempted conversion was blocked, and the Dutch led 13-0. Ferris attempted to move the ball down a f t e r the third Dutch kickoff, was unsuccessful, punted, only to have the kick blocked and again Hope took possession on the Ferris 35. On the f i r s t play Emery ran off tackle the distance to the poles, a deceptive pass from Higgs to Yonkers f o r the e x t r a point, the gun sounded the end of the first quarter, and Hope led 20-0. The next touchdown march for the Dutchmen began on their own 35 yard line. Kraii smashed through center to the midfield stripe for a first down, Hope's f i f t h ; Emery on an off tackle canter moved the ball another 15 yards to the Ferris 33; De Vette was smothered for a loss on an attempted pass, and Hope had the ball on the midfield stripe when Emery broke loose around right end for the longest run of the game, a 50-yard sprint and the Dutch's fourth touchdown. Ferris threatened just before the half ended, moving the ball to the Hope 1 yard line, but the gun

tution by both coaches. The Dutch scored first in the third period, a f t e r Buter had run the kickoff back for 25 ysrds to the Ferris 40. Timmer scored on a wide end sweep of 30 yards, and Hope tallied up fi more to lead 32-0. Ferris' only touchdown came a f t e r Hendrickson intercepted a pass on the Dutch 35; a pass from Hanson to Hendrickson landed the ball on the 8 where Hethering took it over around right end. The sixth Hope score came in the final frame, again the result of a Ferris fumble. Koop moved the ball down to the 28 and another first down, the 11th for the Dutch. A beautiful pass from DeVette to Kempker brought the pill to the 5; Koop smashed through center to the 1 foot stripe, where De Vette on a quarterback sneak brought it over. The kick was blocked, the ball game was over and the Orange and Blue had chalked up another win, their first since downing Hillsdale in 1943, 13-6. In the first non-conference game Hope showed up well on offense, with beautiful ball handling by the quarterback Yonker, a former Big Red from star-studded Muskegon. Higgs, Timmer, Post, and Bill Emery all did some fancy stepping in the backfield, snatching up the ball f a s t in the quick moving " T " formation. Big Dell Koop, Draper, Dick, Cornell, Schriemer, Buter and Ladewig played a fine offensive game on the line for the Dutch, opening up huge gaps for the barkfield. The Dutch were weak in their aerial defense, and may run into trouble in future games if conference teams take to the air. The Ferris squad also showed little class and no deception, something

It sounded and the neon read Hope 26, Ferris 0. Coach Vanderbush's boys had chalked up 8 f i r s t downs to two for Ferris, and had made their first 20 points without once having the ball in their own territory! The second half was a sluggish a f f a i r , with a great deal of substi-

height 6 feet, a junior, married, a marine veteran. Dick is the only player on the squad who made the all MIAA team of 1942, as a triplethreat man. He showed up well against Ferris, making one touchdown, a conversion, and passing for another; he's still triple threat. Art Timmer, age 25, weight 165, height 5 ft. 11 in., a senior, married, a marine veteran. Art is another f o r m e r Hope stalwart, a sparkplug of the 1940 team, another running back.

The Dutchmen's next opponent, j Albion college, looms as the posI sible MIAA champs in a starj studded conference. Coach Gord , Sprankle, who witnessed the Ferris-Hope contest, will bring to Holland a large squad, composed of 16 lettermen and as many war veterans, many of whom have seen service action. His backfield is fast, probably a bit f a s t e r than the To refresh the memories of those Dutch, his line is lighter, but experienced; in coaching experience former men of Hope now back, and there is no better man in the conto acquaint new students with ference.

16 lettermen,

plenty of power and the urge to win their first game in three years of competition.

Hope is off to another big season in sports, the f i r s t big season since 1942 when the Dutch participated in all m a j o r and minor sports in the strong Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association. And back in the conference is Adrian college, who withdrew from football due to lack of interest, or men or both. All six teams in the conference are hot, with the nod f o r top power going to Hillsdale, then Albion, Kalamazoo and Hope. This is not a personal observation. However, with football coming into its own f o r the f i r s t time since '42, how anyone can even venture to guess as to top squads is a problem in itself. Even the coaches are new in every school but Albion, who has a veteran Gord Sprankle, a Briton of some 12 years standing. Alma has Sebo, a former s t a r from Michigan State, Hillsdale has Nelson, a U of Michigan player, Abbot is at Adrian, and Kalamazoo has Nulf. Of course the Dutch mentors are Vanderbush and Waters, both Grand Rapids men. The last MIAA football champion was Alma, who knocked out Hope 20-7 that year, but pre-season boosters don't even give them an even chance to oreak out in the first three this year. Quite a number of veterans are expected to report for football A F T E H the first game has been played, according to Coach Van. He was able to contact only those lads who were out for spring practice, but many are due in school for opening classes. Among them, and this is red hot, is Bill Holwerda, a Grand Rapids South all city s t a r ; he s sure to spark the Blue and Orange, which are Hopes colors incidentally. You probably won't see the colors on the field all year, as new football uniforms aren't arriving as expected. Heaviest man on the squad is Dell Koop, who tips the scales at 270, a f t e r knocking off 15 pounds in practice sessions— and he's a married man with a namesake. Lightest man is Al Vande Waa, an Orange City, Iowa, lad who weighed in at 140. The crowd who showed up for the first football contest in Holland this year was the largest f i r s t game mob ever to grace the stands for a Hope contest. At $.60 a head the gate receipts should about pay for Dell Koop's specially fitted uniform! Unique, but not funny, is the f a c t that Hope is the only MIAA school which does not boast a band to give the f a n s a hand at the games. Uniforms and instruments are in mothballs, but no players. Let's do something about it. A good football game can be best only with a band, blankets and food. So, on with the sport. All over the country the greatest game has received impetus never before shown a sport; all University of Michigan games are sold out; lets get behind the little Dutch at Hope and shove.
