A total of 53 instructional films have been scheduled for showing to biology classes throughout the coming year. Students of both elementary and advanced courses in biology will benefit from this plan. Several films have already been shown to advanced classes. The work of scheduling these movies was completed during the summer by George Zuidema, who worked under the direction of Dr. Teunis Vergeer, Head of the Biology Department.

Rev. Philip Phelps

Rev. Philip Phelps came to Holland, Michigan from Hastingson-Hudson, New York in 1859, having been appointed by the Boards of Education and Domestic Missions to supervise the educational work of the Reformed Church. In coming to Holland, he was to act as principal of the Holland Academy and also as a missionary pastor. During the first three years of his work as principal, he reorganized the system of classification of students in the academy and prepared the way for the s h i f t into a college, so t h a t in 1862 the first freshman class of what w a s soon ship of Miss Laura Boyd, Miss to be Hope College was formed.

Mrs. Wright is director of the Chicago Council of Foreign Affairs and is editor of their publication. Foreign Notes.

Racial Expert October 12th brings to our campus Dr. Kenneth Walker, educator, author, and lecturer who comes highly recommended from many places. His topic will be Live Together or Live Not in which all his broad experience has been distilled into a philosophy of life. A resident of Hawaii, his viewpoint on racial problems is broad and understanding coupled with practical observation of America's greatest "melting pot" of races. His experiences, beginning with the bombing of Shanghai in 1937, through his experiences in Germany in the infamous Nuremburg prison are expected to make Mr. Walker's narrative a thrilling discourse.

Final plans for Hope's new women's dormitory have been completed Dr. Lubbers recently announced. Plans call for a building which will house one hundred women and has dining facilities for two hundred. Because of shifting prices, the building committee has withheld its decision until now. Now it remains for the architect to draw up the final blueprints. The dormitory will be built in the sunken gardens. The architect secured is one who plans buildings to fit the landscape rather than change the landscape to fit the buildings. Therefore, the sunken gardens will remain as they are and the dormitory will be built into the sunken gardens. The building plans are much on the order of those used for Voorhees Hall which houses ninety women and facilitates the feeding of one hundred and eighty persons. Dr. Lubbers cautioned that although 3verything is scheduled for construction, with present conditions as they are, it may be some time before actual construction is begun.

Choral Directors Report Selections Hope's choir directors recently made their selections for this year's choral groups. Miss Hazel Paalman, director of the Chapel choir, recently announced the names of those students who will make up the one hundred voice organization f o r the coming year. Miss Paalman also promised that the group would present more music in future chapel programs. A Sunday evening serv- , ice in Central Reformed Church of Grand Rapids, a Christmas Program and a Spring Concert are other events which are planned. Mrs. W. Curtis Snow, director of the Women's Glee Club has selected thirty-four young women to represent Hope College as the 1948-1949 edition of the Women's Glee Club. The group boasts many veteran's of last year's successful eastern concert tour, and several new hopefuls as well. Prof. Robert W. Cavanaugh recently welcomed the thirty-six members of the Hope College Men's Glee Club to their first rehearsal of the year. Mr. Cavanaugh, the club's director, was pleased with the group which includes a large number of men returning from last year's successful organization as well as many promising newcomers. The membership lists of these organizations have been posted on the Chapel bulletin board.

A New Way!

All of us are in favor of our democratic way of life and are interested in promoting this way wherever possible. For many years now educators have been involved in the struggle to make American schools more democratic. High schools and colleges are approaching the point where more and more of the activities are under student direction. But Hope college has now taken a step f u r t h e r . Two English classes t a u g h t by Dr.

A New Counsellor As many Hopeites know, it has been a custom at Hope for some time to have a counsellor assigned to the Anchor. The duty of the counsellor is to read the copy of the Anchor j u s t previous to "setting up" at the printer. There, grammatical errors are eliminated, spelling mistakes caught and questionable material sought out. In addition, the counsellor works closely with the Business Manager in the m a t t e r of finances. It is f r o m this position that Mr. Vander Borgh recently resigned in favor of Mr. Brand. Because of Mr. Vander Borgh's press of duties and Mr. Brand's recent journalistic training the switch was decided upon. Mr. Vander Borgh has served the Anchor in this capacity for five years and they have been years characterized by a great freedom of our press. His interest, insight and knowledge were of inestimable value during those years. The latch string of his office door was always on the outside for our benefit. It is with regret that we note his laying aside his duties. But our regret is short-lived for we welcome Mr. Brand. Those who know him need no f u r t h e r comment for they know him as a man intensely interested in our lives. He accepts his position with a rich background of religious and intellectual experience. Our hearts are at ease for we know t h a t so long as we exercise our freedom in search of Truth and God we are safe from throttling. Welcome Mr. Brand and may your headaches be f e w !

Hollenbach have elected five s t u d e n t s to act as an advisory board which will meet with the professor to map out a plan for the course. They will be consulted with regard to assignments and the use of class time. This is indeed a step toward democratic education. But the question arises in my mind as to whether or not college students are ready to accept the responsibility of this privilege. For privileges of this sort necessarily mean responsibility to ourselves and those around us. Imagine for example that all requirements as to basic courses, class attendance, dormitory rules, and chapel attendance were dropped from the college schedule. How many of us would be adult enough to see our need for taking English, Bible, or Psychology? How many students would attend classes regularly? And how large a crowd would there be at chapel services each morning? I am not suggesting that the college take such measures. I myself believe t h a t this acceptance of responsibility is something which we must acquire gradually. Certainly a graduating senior should be more capable of doing so than a new freshman. If he isn't there is something very wrong with our educational system. What I do want to suggest is that we as students awake to our 1 opportunities so that we may take full advantage of the privileges which are granted us. In all of your searching during registration If we prove ourselves capable and adult in small matters, we will eventually be entrusted week concerning school requirements did you happen to run across the section of "Standwith the bigger ones. ards and Aims" in the Bulletin?

the very center of a vibrant campus life. And that's where the "rub" appears. It's one thing to draw up a set of objectives but it's another thing to gear campus life to them. But the duty remains and we dare not shirk it. The statement of objectives has made the outside of the cup clean — our appearance is safeguarded — but the inside of the cup remains and it can be cleaned only by a ruthless adherence to and a vigorous striving toward these listed objectives. It's an all-campus job. It isn't the President's job alone and the faculty is only partially responsible. The job is ours as a college. From Bible department to Business office and from fraternity to Administration the responsibility spreads to hold high Hope's aims and struggle toward its objectives. Books Are Not Absolutely Dead things, but do contain potency of life in them to be as active as the soul was whose progeny they are; nay, they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect. I know they are as lively and as vigorously productive as those fabulous dragon's teeth . . . As good almost kill

a man as kill a good book: who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God's image; but he who destroys a good book, kills reason itself, kills the image of God as it were, in the eye. Many a man lives a burden to the earth; but a good book is the precious lifeblood of a master spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life. —John Milton. Ramsey McDonald described an educated man as one having certain spiritual qualities which make him calm in adversity, happy when alone, just in his dealing, rational and sane in the crises of life. Dr. Frank Ferris says that the possession of a college diploma presupposes the following abilities: the ability to use a reference library; the ability to use the English language with precision and grace; a general knowledge of human history, the history of events and the history of ideas r a speaking acquaintance with the best that has been thought and done before we appeared on the scene, a sufficient knowledge of the past to give perspective to the present; and a mastery of one chosen field of knowledge, presumably one's life work.

Symphony Season Opens October 22 The G r a n d Rapids Symphony season will open with the first concert on Friday, October 22. Jose Echaniz, internationally f a m o u s pianist and conductor under whose direction the orchestra will play, has selected programs which are extremely broad in their coverage of practically every school of music. The W a g n e r "Reinzi" Overture will lead off the opening program on October 22, and W a g n e r ' s " T a n n h a u s e r " Overture will close the F e b r u a r y program. Brahms will be represented by one of the most popular of all his works f o r orchestra, his superb Symphony No. 1 in C Minor. Two popular works of the French school will be performed: the Debussy "Prelude to the Afternoon of a F a w n " and Ravel's "Bolero". Music of t h e classic period which has been selected includes Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik", the Beethoven Symphony No. 1, which has not been performed for many years here, a n d t h e b e l o v e d "Lenore" Overture No. 3 of Beethoven. Contemporary composers will be represented by Howard Hanson's "Romantic Symphony," and by the suite from the "Three Cornered H a t " of the Spaniard De Falla. Dance music will include a Strauss waltz on t h e Christmas concert program, a s well as Enesco's "Rumanian Rhapsody" No. 1 and Charbrier's " E s p a n a " , both of which will be performed on the March program. For his finaj program in April, Mr. Echaniz has put together a group which includes the "Great Russian E a s t e r " of Rimsky-Korsakov, the Tchaikowsky Piano Concerto, and " T h e Pines of Rome" by the Italian composer Respighi. Don Vandenberg and Frances Rose are the ticket agents on the campus.

I.R.C. Leaders Gather To Plan Coming Events The first meeting of the International Relations Club officers was held on September 22nd in Miss Ross' office. Plans f o r the coming events were somewhat disrupted because of the inability of speaker John B. Martin to set a definite date of meeting due to his political campaign. A dinner meeting in the near f u t u r e is to be opened to all students who are especially interested in foreign affairs. Negotiations are underway to secure speakers of international repute. I.R.C. has opened its membership to any and all students to the meetings held on the first and third Wednesdays of the month at four o'clock.

Laughter Is No Interlude! According to the most qualified observers, human beings are the only earthly creatures t h a t can laugh. Nobody knows why we laugh. Scientifically, no one can say what makes us laugh. Nobody knows why some things are funny and others are not funny, or why a thing can b^ funny to one person and f a r from funny to another person. The thing we call a sense of humor is literally a mystery.

tickles or irritates and produces a tension: a laugh, like a sneeze, relieves it. In my view, laughter is an essential ingredient of religion — of honest, wholesome religion. St. Francis of Assissi would never have been a saint if people had not laughed a t him. He went away as a young man to the wars. He came back without striking a blow.

Humor is one of the things which cannot really be defined. Yet it is an integral part of life, a very important part, one that we could ill afford to lose. Laughter is not just an interlude; it is a shaping force in human affairs; it can influence events; it can mold character. It is interwoven with everything else, one of the basic factors of experience, an indissoluble part of human life. Unfortunately, religion has t r a ditionally either neglected it or scorned it. Somehow, religion has been thought too sacred for laughter; nobody seems to have suggested that laughter itself might be a sacred gift. Why should it be thought that no one should laugh in church? And so seldom remembered that laughter could have something to do with refreshing the soul? It takes humility to laugh, and even g r e a t e r humility to submit yourself to be laughed at. Hut laughter is also emotional release. Wyndham Lewis has said "Laughter is the mind sneezing". Something

It hurt deeply, inconsolably. Francis ran away from it. Then discovered what it was that the people were laughing at. He began to laugh at it himself. And so he got rid of his vanity. The groat glory and distinction of St. Francis was that he brought back joy to religion.

His address at the meeting of the World Council in Amsterdam last month has served to heighten interest in his position with respect to Communism.

DUTCH TRAVEL TO MONMOUTH Team Faces Tough Game In Illinois This Saturday


Hope's 1948 Football Squad

) i

I t will be more t h a n j u s t another game when Hope meets Monmouth down in Illinois this week Saturday afternoon. It will be the first time in many years that Hope has worn grid battle dress outside the state. The team will leave on their 380-mile trip tomorrow morning. They will stay in a town a short distance f r o m Monmouth tomorrow night. Rather t h a n spend a second night away from the home the squad will probably come all the way back to Holland Saturday night a f t e r the game.
