Clubs by Mrs. Fenton during the past week. The material in both clubs is very promising and we may look forward to a season o excellent musical entertainment. The new members taken into the Girls' Glee Club are Anne Jackson. Ruth Mulder, Ada Ellerbroek, Bernice Mollema, Marian Working Viola Durling, Marian Wray Laurena Hollebrands. Those taken into the Men's Glee Club are William Vandenberg, Arnold Van Zanten, Melvin Vandenberg, Melvin Dole, Henry Van Deelen, Cornelius Vander Naald James Neetinga, Marcellus De Jong, Everett Welmers, Russell Paalman, Carlyle Neckers, Richarc Vander Wilt, Frank Visscher Eikie Meyer, George Mulder.

young ladies outdid the men in singing. The leader for the evening, Bemice Mollema, led in the devotions. An appropriate solo, "How Long Wilt Thou Forget" was sung in Hazel Paalman's always pleasing manner. Miss Mollema then discussed her topic, "The Call from the Heights," with ideals as the main point. The beginning of another school year is like turning over a new leaf. As the students start this new year, they should choose high and worthy ideals for which to strive. Every ideal broken is a black mark on the page, but every ideal gained is a good mark.



STUDENT TICKETS Magician and Russian Cossack Chorus Are Probable Later Numbers of Course

The Hope College Lyceum course opens a week from tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 7. The first number will be a presentation by the Shakespearean Players who made their appearance here last year. They will give two performances this year; a matinee at 8:30, and in the evening at 8:00 P. M. The matinee is to be that hilarious comedy "The Taming of the Shrew." The evening performance will be the great tragic drama, "Hamlet."

the auspices of the Student Council, will be held this Friday evening in Carnegie Gymnasium as a climax, or rather an end to the Sophomore-Freshman class rivalry, and as a general get-to-gether of the college students and faculty. A short program of musical numbers and talks has been planned. For those who do not find this attraction enough, assurance of refreshments may be given with some degree of certainty. The main object, however, is to foster a closer acquaintance between the students and faculty. Come and meet that stunning new co-ed who has been haunting your dreams!

CROWD E X P E C T S "RUN-AWAY" GAME, BUT CHANGES ESTIMATE O F HOPE POWERS A fighting Hope squad, invaded the home of Heidelberg Uuniversity in Tiffin, Ohio, last Saturday, and held that powerful, heavy, and experienced team to 2 touchdowns. It was a game where pure scrappiness on the part of the Hope gridders gave this highly touted Ohio aggregation a battle and a scare which they will long remember. In fact, while Heidelberg made their touchdowns in the first and third quarters, during the second and fourth Hope clearly outplayed the Ohio boys and outnumbered them in first down, 6 to 5. Our Dutchmen surely surprised the "Student Princes." According to advance dope, Hope was slated to be defeated by about 40 or 50 to 0. But when Jappinga and Tysse began to break through for first downs, and when Zwemer repeatedly broke through the Heidelberg line to stop the opposing backs, it became a slightly different story. In the first quarter, Heidelberg ran back the kickoff to their own 10 yard line. A f t e r several exchanges of punts, they took the ball near the middle of fche field and battered their way for the first touchdown. At the start of the second quarter, Hope began a 30 yard march which was only stopped when a

then kicked out of danger, and after several more exchanges of punts, the half ecded with Heidelberg in possession of the ball well in their own territory. A f t e r the beginning of the third quarter, Hope drove down to the enemies' 35 yard line where a pass again Was intercepted. A f t e r being forced back to their own 30, the Dutchmen again took the ball on downs, and Tysse punted 65 yards to put them well out of danger. At the very start of the last period, Heidelberg, again on a 35 yard march, took the ball down the field for their second touchdown. Following the kickoff, the Hope pass attack began to click and this last spurt was not checked until they were finally stopped on the opponents' 14 yard line.

An S. O. S. message was delivered to the Student Volunteer Band at its last meeting by Reverend Harry P. Boot of Amoy, China. A large group of recruits were out to receive the message; many of whom were there for the first time. It is hoped that they will continue to come. Rev, Boot has served four terms on the mission field; and out of his twenty-eight years of experience was able to tell many things of importance to the recruits. The speaker hinged his thoughts upon the S. O. S. signal. The first S stands for Signs of Success; O for Opposition and S for Service. The increase in the number of native pastors and women attending the seminaries is only one of the signs of success. Much opposition is met with, especially since the government has prohibited Bible study in the elementary schools. The missionaries must find other agencies besides the high schools and the seminaries in which to reach the new generation. Nevertheless, the Chinese church is helping all it can in furthering the cause. It is paying for approximately half of the expenses and is making desperate efforts to pay more. The educational qualifications have become more exacting f o r the native workers since they themselves desire a more thorough preparation.
