Elzinga and Volkers, who recently completed the Seminary building, have been awarded the contract f o r the new men's dorm to be erected on the corner of 12th and Columbia. The dorm is to be completed by August 31, 1956. Also, contractors now have been invited to make bids on a new Music Building, which will stand at the west end of the athletic field. Elzinga and Volkers' bid f o r the men's dorm, $916,790, is subject to the approval of the Housing and Home Finance Agency, a subsidiary of the Federal Housing Administration. Ground breaking ceremonies, which must take place on or before October 22, await the governmental approval of the contract. The dorm, on which f o u r construction firms bid, will be " L " shaped, three stories high, and will house 300 men in 150 rooms. When bids on the music building have been opened, it can be determined whether ground m a y be broken immediately or if a period of financial accumulation is necessary. Endracht h a s contributed $100,000 toward this fund. The unit will be of modern design and contain classrooms, studios, and rooms f o r practice. A band-orchestra room will be connected to t h e main s t r u c t u r e by a pergola. The present 12th Streetto-Carnegie drive will be rerouted.

Cast is Set

For Late C. Bean The Homecoming production of Palette and Masque this year will be The Late Christopher Bean by Sidney Howard. Contrary to w h a t has been previously announced, the play will be presented on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 20th, 21st and 22nd. Christopher Bean is a modern comedy with undertones of seriousness. A painter named Bean has died in a small New England village. He supposedly leaves no money to pay his debts. A mad scramble ensues among his friends when his paintings are discovered to be of g r e a t value, and the effect on the characters of those involved in the scramble is uppermost in the play. The leading male roles will be played by Pete Kelley as Dr. Huggett and Pete De Moya as Rosen. Ann De P r e e and Ja 4 . Van Persum will take the female leads as Abby and Mrs. H a g g e t t , respectively. Others in the cast include Marlin Vanderwilt as Wassen K r a m e r , Gerrit Hoek as Tawlant, John Ewing as Davenport, Aileen McGoldrick as Ada H a g g e t t and J a n e Go wens as Susan H a g g e t t .

Kiwanians Begin With The Orient E m b a r k i n g upon its eighth season, the Holland Kiwanis Club is once again presenting its "World Travel Series" o f outstanding, beautiful motion pictures. Beginning October 5th, Kiwanis will bring to the Hope Memorial Chapel, six programs, each of these being of the film-lecture category. One hundred complimentary tickets, distributed on a first come first served basis, will be available to Hope Students prior to each presentation.

C M A Explained Dates Listed As in previuos years, the townspeople and college personnel of Holland will be accorded the enjoyment of a concert series during the school season. Formerly sponsored by Hope College, the concerts will now be presented by the Holland Civic Music Association, integ r a t i n g the interests of Hope College, the town of Holland, and groups in the outlying districts. The Civic Music Association, joined in March by Holland, is a non-profit organization which is active both in the United States and Canada. It affords nationallyknown a r t i s t s to its members and makes valid the memeber's tickets without additional cost to attend concerts everywhere the Civic Music Association operates. Since a wide selection of touring a r t i s t s and groups was available, the organizing g r o u p of the Holland C.M.A. offered choice by ballot to those buying memberships to determine what a r t i s t s they wished to have a p p e a r in Holland this season. The ballot tabulations were rigidly adhered to; consequently, the series is one picked by those who were eagerly looking f o r w a r d to attending it.

The Association h a s sold 2147 t r a n s f e r a b l e memberships, six hundred-fifty of which are student memberships with Hope College buying a block of five hundred. Those of you who already have college membership tickets know what the series is. No one will be admitted who docs not have a season ticket. As t h e r e are no reserved seats, Holland members are asked to be seated twenty minutes before curtain t i m e in order that Grand Haven members or those who belong to the C.M.A. in other towns may be seated.

Nell Salm on England

I could also answer the question by describing something of w h a t I learned about the English way of life. I could weigh the merits of an educational system radically different t h a n the American procedure; I could discuss the role of the Church of England. I could tell how I found the pace of life relaxed f r o m the pell mell race of a mechanized society to the leisurely walk of an atmosphere which allowed time to live today f r e e from the worries to tomorrow. This a t m o s p h e r e is reflected in a thousand ways. For instance, a young couple setting up housekeeping in England is much more likely to put t h e i r heads together over a seed catalogue and order some dahlia bulbs f o r t h e i r garden than to consider buying a washing machine — even a t a bargain. And I found it customary to ride a bicycle three miles into town to keep an appointment r a t h e r than to depend on the car. I fell in easily with the delightful custom of high tea. I learned to relish scones, suet pudding, and roast beef with Yorkshire pudding. I learned to say " t w e n t y " instead of " t w e n n y " ; when I wanted something repeated. In small ways as well as in larger ways I learned much about a new way of life while I was in England. But the real highlight of the summer to me does not lie in these things which I saw and learned, unforgettable though they are. To me the supreme value of the s u m m e r lies in the warm human regard, the deep feeling of friendship which exists between the English f a m i l y I lived with and me, their adopted American d a u g h t e r and sister. I know t h a t these people will be my friends f o r life. So o f t e n I a m reminded of them. I walk down the street and I imagine I am t a g g i n g a f t e r Angela, my English sister, while she goes about feeding her chickens or exercising her horse. Someone tells a joke and in m y mind's eye I can see Bruce, my English brother, with a mock-serious expression on his craggy f e a t u r e s exclaiming, "You ah vulgah!" I took a walk in the park yesterday and chanced to see a blooming rose of the same variety that my English mother cherished in h e r garden. Suddenly my throat tightened and I remembered the expression in her warm blue eyes when I left my English home. "Goodbye, dearie," was all she said, but there was a world of sympathetic understanding behind her words. These memories along with many others which crowd in on me every day a r e the ones which are meaningful to me. Yes, I was impressed with the interior decoration of the Houses of P a r l i a m e n t ; I was thrilled to walk f r o m the Edinburg castle down t h e historic Royal Mile of t h a t city. But a richer thrill came f r o m pedaling in the twilight down a country lane in Norfolk listening t h r o u g h t f u l l y as Bruce, cycling beside me, soberly explained something of his philosophy of life. I'm sentimental, you say ? Perhaps. But it is a kind of sentiment which I never want to lose. I think it is in making it possible f o r this close feeling of kinship to exist between individuals living in different countries t h a t the Community Ambassador program p e r f o r m s its most valuable service. I know t h a t I will never again allow t h e English people to be criticized as coldly f o r m a l or stuffy or not given to making f r i e n d s easily without rallying to their defense with an account of the w a r m t h and welcome I received f r o m my English f a m i l y this summer. And I t r u s t t h a t the European conception of Americans as weirdly dressed, boastful, free-spending people who are informal to the point of rudeness h a s been somewhat altered in the minds of my English friends because they knew me.

EDITOR'S DESK Student a la Mashed

Registration was a mess. Could it not have been avoided? With the facilities we have available, and the comparatively small number of students t h a t must be processed, there is no excuse f o r a debacle such as occurred on Wednesday afternoon, September 20. Actually it was just a repeat of last year. And we insist, f o r those we leave behind, t h a t it not happen again next fall. We already have received assurance f r o m one source t h a t steps will be taken. We wish they would be formulated now, by a special student-faculty committee, or b e t t e r yet, through the channels of the student government we have organized f o r such purposes. We suggest t h a t it be done immediately: while we still feel the sensitive p a r t s of our bodies being gently massaged by the sensitive p a r t s of other's; as the mind questioned the possibility of Armageddon; and remember standing f o r an hour before a sign—"Registration Begins Here", while close to 100 people paraded through f r o m another door. The question was asked of us, "Why do students all come at o n c e ? " In answer we would ask — how can 600 upperclassmen go through registration in the 21/2 hours alloted? — this being an average of 240 per hour. With only one professor handing out booklets and class schedules, this is an impossibility — at that, one new to campus and not f a m i l i a r with our names. At times there were only three persons p r e p a r i n g the S t a t e m e n t of Fees. Even the physicist among them several times took two minutes in his calculations. We suggest that, if necessary, the secretarial staff have a job analysis so t h a t students may be notified of section changes and dropped courses before they arrive, a f t e r several hours wait, at the registration desk. We've cooled off a little, but we are still disgusted.

Quiet Roots Grow Deep On the opposite page is stated a t r u t h f u n d a m e n t a l to an educational philosophy, — "Education itself is a process, a search r a t h e r t h a n an attainment." While this is basic and true, the more one medit a t e s upon it, the more confusing it may become. F o r we say t h a t it is good to acquire knowledge, or to attain a certain intellectual level, — and we do not enter upon a search without hopes of attaining an answer or a goal. The words a t t a i n and acquire, used in the educational sense, are dangerous and misleading. Rather, let us use "pour and absorb." Education, to the masses and also to some who bear the label Educator, is t h o u g h t of in the first sense — the dissemination of information f r o m the professor to the student. But, so often this is like pouring alcohol into a pan — everything evaporates and nothing is absorbed. The teaching process should be one of rain — now s h a r p and stimulating the organism to stretch out in search of benefits, and then soft and gentle f o r absorption and g r o w t h : and, as Wallace Stegner has said, " t h e plant should not be pulled up too often to see how the roots are coming."

MINUTES Minutes of September 21, 1955:

COMMENT At the first Student Council meeting, three items of m a j o r interest arose. F i r s t , the Klezt had been renovated over the s u m m e r and would be open to the student body a f t e r the Hope-Heidelberg game. Second, f r e s h m e n w e r e given an enlarged role in the ranks of the Student Council. Third, your Student Council is thinking very seriously of adopting the constitution of the National Student Association ( N S A ) . As a brief commentary on the first two, it might be suggested that as many council meetings as possible be held in the Kletz, simply because such a location would stimulate more Student Council attendance. The increased representation f o r f r e s h m e n is, of course, a fine thing and little more could be added. Our prospective membership in N S A necessitates more comment. As you, the student body, a r e represented by the Student Council, the Student Council would be represented on a national level by the NSA. Thus, you would be represented, indirectly, by N S A and could, in a sense, be considered to be responsible f o r N S A ' s actions. This would put a large responsibility upon every member of Hope's student body and especially upon its Student Council. T h e r e f o r e , we m u s t consider carefully its assets and liabilities, and then decide f o r or against the adoption of this constitution. We can't let one or two members of our Student Council decide f o r us — this is our responsibility. W. L a t h a m

The council met a t 7 P.M. in Van Raalte 101. The roll was taken and the minutes of J u n e 2nd meeting were approved as read. A motion was made to have an open discussion on N.S.A. It was urged t h a t everyone read the Michigan Student Bill of Rights and the information folders. One of the tangible benefits is a special .rate f o r study groups abroad.

It seems both a p p r o p r i a t e and wise to discuss, in this the first of a series of monthly columns on the UN, its forthcoming tenth anniversary session — October 24; it seems a p p r o p r i a t e to discuss the tenth anniversary in t e r m s of a p a r t i c u l a r contribution by the UN to the v i b r a n t aspirations of mankind f o r peace. But first I must make it explicit t h a t this column shall always maintain an optimistic tone in discussing workings of the U N ; f o r I feel t h a t the U N , while it is not a panacea f o r all the ills of the world, yet it is possibly the best t h a t men have been able to devise, imperfect though it may be, to enable them to some day realize their peace. In general terms, then, the particular contribution is this: The UN is offering a means by which men are coming t o realize t h a t the age-old racial and cultural prejudices t h e y have held about each other are not valid. The prejudices b r o u g h t about by ignorance are being dispelled by thinking men and women, working t o g e t h e r f o r world peace. The West and the E a s t , E u r o p e and Asia — all coming t o g e t h e r with high hopes. It is t r u e t h a t this is elementary and maybe a comprehensive survey of f a c t s and figures should be set f o r t h to prove the worth of the UN, yet I feel t h a t when men can come together and have a meeting of minds, it demands recognition.

A f t e r the delivery of bids last Thursday morning, the Dorians wasted little time in welcoming their pledges. Pledge pins were awarded a t a dinner held the next day at Cumerford's. In the next f e w weeks, pledges and actives alike will join in preparation f o r Homecoming celebration. Sibylline The Sibs too were among the first of the sororities to hold their formal welcoming of those whom they bid. Their pledges were honored last Friday night with a dinner at Shirley Hop's home. Homecoming preparations will dominate the activities of the Sibyllines, both actives and pledges, as the annual event draws near. Sorosis The newly redecorated Kletz was the scene of the first informal meeting of the Sorosites and their pledges last Monday. A f t e r a pledge dinner at the Red Brick Tavern in Plainwell tonight, actives and pledges will begin preparation f o r the events of Homecoming.

In the process of education we are inclined to overlook t h e necessity of its religious or spiritual aspects. Chapel services a r e p a r t of this proccss called education.

With power runners Joe Sydow and Mike Chitjian at the halfback slots and bull-like Sid Dodge taking care of the fullback chores Carroll should have a powerful running game once again this year. The quarterback position is well manned by J a c k Fendt and ace passer Ken Groble both of whom filled the position very capably last year. Coach McCormick's m a j o r problem was supposed to be in developing a strong line to go along with his fine backfield. He must have found some p r e t t y f a i r replace-

Dutch Strong In Second Bow Prancing, weaving, spinning, and driving w a s the f o r m u l a used by the small profiicient Heidelberg backfield to overcome the stubborn defenses erected by the Dutchmen. However, a f t e r a stunning defeat at the hands of Michigan Normal a week before, both defensively and offensively Hope was much improved. The men f r o m Tiffin opened the first q u a r t e r with a sustained drive that produced the first Heidelberg touchdown. During these opening minutes it appeared as if Hope could not stop the "greased lightning" attack machined by backs Roy King and Little All-American Walter Livingston. Then pulling together info a tightly knit defensive unit, Hope was able to halt any appreciable Heidelberg gain for the remainder of the first half. In the second half, Heidelberg was first to move when, in the middle of the third quarter, Walter Livingston scampered f r o m deep in his own territory to Hope's ten yard line and went over f o r the second score. Hope, not to be outdone, ended the q u a r t e r as John Adams, grabbing a pitchout, ran eighty-seven yards to w h a t might have been a touchdown had he not slipped when cutting back. On the next f o u r plays which opened t h e last quarter, the Dutchmen were unable ^ to move beyond Heidelberg's on6 yard line. Having to surrender the ball proved f a t a l as Livingston, running f r o m his own goal line, broke through and drove to Hope's t h i r t y yard line. Continuing on short drives, Heidelberg chalked up another score as Roy King dove over. Finally, as the game was drawing to a close, Hope marched to t h e i r first score

Through The Keyhole Hope College play last S a t u r d a y night showed t h a t the Dutchmen are an entirely different team t h a n the one that was soundly trounced by the Hurons of Normal last week. Students and coaches alike can well be proud of the boys' showing a g a i n s t the highly touted Princes, who played almost flawless ball. Although play on the p a r t of the Dutch was vastly improved, the team f r o m Tiffin was almost perfection. As one of our players put it, "They j u s t didn't make any mistakes — and we did." Although our team morale was much higher this week, maybe our boys could take a lesson f r o m the Heidelberg team in the way t h a t they snap out of their huddle with a "lets go" and run, not trot, to the line of scrimmage. This decorum will give any team an air of sharpness and confidence, and serve to keep spirit at a high pitch. It would seem t h a t our one glaring f a u l t lies in the f a c t t h a t , as a whole, we don't seem to tackle hard enough or sure enough. Most of the time it took a t least two men to stop the hard running Heidelberg backs, and many times they carried our men f o r additional yardage. Mick Faber and Ron De Graw, Saturday night's defensive s t a l w a r t s , were among the few to show t h a t if a runner is hit low enough and h a r d enough he won"t go any f u r t h e r . One of the brightest spots of S a t u r d a y ' s g a m e was the astute q u a r t e r b a c k i n g of H a r r y Voss, whose magician like f a k i n g and s t r o n g defensive play evidence t h a t coach DeVette's quarterback problem m a y finally be solved. Showing a very deceptive change of pace, explosive, hard running, swivel hipped halfback John Adams served notice t h a t he will again be Hope's mainstay in the backfield and prime candidate f o r N.A.I.A. honors. John carried 11 times f o r a total of 89 yards, or about 8 yards per carry. Another cause f o r rejoicing is the vast improvement made in pass defense over last week's encounter. The a l e r t play on the p a r t of the backs, and the hard charging of
