The class of '57, on September 17, held a meeting in Durfee lounge f o r the election of its class officers. Elected were Maurice Marcus president, Bob Johnson, vicepresident, Ethel Peelen secretary, and Dave Van Eenenaam as treasurer. Maurice Marcus attended high school f o r his first three years in Milwaukee and moved to Grand Rapids to complete his senior year a t Ottawa Hills High School. He played guard on the varsity football team in Milwaukee, and also served his school in track and field events. He was elected president of the choir and was a member of the orchestra. His senior year, in Grand Rapids, was an eventful one. He was on the executive board of his class, served on the student council, and was voted the most likely to succeed and the most popular boy. The final reward f o r splendid work was the Upton Cup Award f o r the best all-around boy in school. It is remarkable t h a t Maurie was able to obtain all these honors while attending Ottawa Hills High School f o r only his Senior year. Maurie is a psychology m a j o r here a t Hope.

Fall Enrollment


The latest figures released by Mr. Hinkamp, r e g i s t r a r of Hope, show that Hope College has a total of 801 enrolled for the first semester. 485 are male, while the women number 316. The Freshmen class has a l a r g e majority of men students 167 in all; there are ninety f r o s h women. The other three classes are composed t h u s : Sophomores— 106 men, 81 women; Juniors— 90 men, 60 women; Seniors— 107 men, 49 women. Four of the seven special students are female.

Lubbers, president of the college. Dr. Gerrit Van Zyl, head of the chemistry department, and Mr. Clyde Geerlings, college alumni and public relations director. Dr. Kleinheksel graduated f r o m Hope in 1922, and continued advanced study a t the University of Illinois, where he secured his Masters Degree in 1925, and his Doctorate in 1927. At t h a t time, considerable research on rare-earth elements was being conducted a t the University. Dr. Kleinheksel wrote his doctor's thesis on the "Preparation and Properties of Anhydrous Rare-earth Chlorides." Upon his arrival at Hope as a professor in 1928, Dr. Kleinheksel taught chemistry and zoology in Van Raalte Hall. Later, as the enrollment increased, he t a u g h t chemistry exclusively. The new science building, completed in 1942, was badly needed a few years later when an influx of veterans greatly increased the student body. Dr. Kleinheksel said t h a t , the recognition paid to him by so many of his f o r m e r students was indeed g r a t i f y i n g .

Voice of The Campus Editor's Note: The goal of this newspaper is to practice freedom of the press to its fullest practical extent. This column is for everyone, not only students, but faculty also. We'd like to request your letters of criticism, opinion, and suggestion; however, such requests never bring results. Therefore, we're demanding them. We know there are some who have grievances concerning The Anchor, its policies, and some of the opinion expressed in articles and editorials. We want letters, lots of them. Editorials in the future will appear concerning topics of varying significance—some local, some national, some international. If you disagree with opinions expressed in editorials or other letters, don't be afraid to write. This is everybody's newspaper—from the youngest Frosh to the eldest faculty member. We're all Hopeites and citizens of the world. All articles should be written legibly, should be rational in tone, and should include the name of its author. Take articles to A N C H O R mailbox in the Van Raalte Hall Post Office neai the Business Office or give them to Ray Vedder, Dave Angus, Pat Pickens, or Lee Fasce.


MIND? Do you think the Kinsey report should be in our library ? Dave Hondorp, Junior: " I think, because it is a research book, that it would be up to the d e p a r t m e n t concerned to decide." A Seminary Student: "On the point of research I think the Kinsey report h a s little to offer, and under t h a t department it has no place on our library shelves. However, there is a certain amount of good in having the book so t h a t students can understand t h e psychology behind asking the women to tell of their experiences." Dollie Bechberger, Senior: It should be read only by ministers, doctors, and sociologists." A Recent Alumnus: "As a research book it h a s next to nothing. It would seem, with all the recent publicity t h a t it was just a moneymaking project." Professor J a m e s Prins: "Areopagitica by Milton contains my answer." (Editor's Note) Milton said " . . .

it," he said grimly, "you won't be able to live on your salary." He'd had three years of teaching in one of the state's best systems. Now he was quitting. "Sure," he admitted, " I was making $4,000 a year, but 20% went for income taxes and 5 % for the teachers' retirement fund. T h a t left me $3,000, and I just couldn't do it. And they expect you to live in a nice neighborhood, be well-dressed and take active interest in civic affairs. Finally I got completely demoralized and quit. I found I could make more money selling real estate part-time than on my yearly teacher's pay." It was not bitterness that I observed. Just resignation in the face of discouraging circumstances. The union to which he belonged, the American Feredation of Teachers, had been hamstrung by disinterested members, mostly women, he complained. "It's all right for them," he remarked. "They're just teaching for something to do, to supplement their husbands' earnings. The salary is just pin money. It means a new car or redecorating the house. I was one of two bachelors out of 70 teachers," my friend said. "All of the men had outside jobs." He spoke of parents' disinterest in the school. "But it took the kids off their hands—they were glad for school to begin in the fall. They were tired of 'baby-sitting' for the summer. They expect the school to raise their children for them. I don't know what's become of American home life." Under similar circumstances I spoke to another ex-teacher. He was now a fertilizer salesman. I told him I was going to teach, and he laughed at me. "Sure," he said, "when I graduated from M.S.C., I thought I would teach, too. One year was enough for me. I was coaching football, teaching history and a couple of other subjects I didn't know anything about. I tell you it was worth more than my salary. Now, since I quit, almost all of the teacher candidates from my class have left their teaching jobs and gone into sales." Doubtless, there is a real challenge in the teaching profession. It can be an enjoyable and rewarding occupation. But financial worries had imposed upon these two men a heavy and unnecessary strain, which caused them to seek relief in another occupation. Each year a rather high percentage of Hope graduates enters the educational field. Are all our prospective teachers headed for disillusionment? Must teachers simply accept low wages and over-work as consequences of entering a commendable profession? Schooling for all children, yes, indeed—but what price education? HINGA SPEAKS O N FRATERNITIES In a few weeks new men on Hope's campus will be thinking of joining a fraternity. Although Hope does not have National Fraternities, its fraternity life has been a part of Hope College almost from the founding of the college. These fraternities started out as Literary societies, but today I believe that they have a much broader function than just meeting once a week. Much of the social life on Hope's campus revolves about our five fraternity houses. These houses are used not only for meetings, but also for social functions. Almost every Friday or Saturday evening the members invite young women and faculty members over for open house. Each fraternity has a house mother who acts as hostess and helps with the refreshments and entertainment. These house mothers are selected by the college and play a very important part in the life of the fraternity. The friendships made in belonging to one of these organizations are life-long. There is nothing that develops friendships better than working and playing together. The inter-fraternity sports program, the All College Sing, float and house competition at Homecoming all help build up morale. But even more than this is the effort on the part of the different fraternities to find worthwhile projects of a service nature; to help their school, the community or some one in need, near at hand or f a r away. These truly bind fraternities in a way that lasts long after schooldays are over. One of the essential things that all interested candidates should bear in mind is that a scholastic average of 1.7 (allowing 2 points for a " 6 " ) must be maintained by all men desiring to be taken into fraternities. The time to keep this in mind is now when classes are starting rather than later when the nineweek grades are posted. As a closing thought for new men on Hope's Campus: give every fraternity a real chance. Keep an open mind. Be cautious of any group that tries to build up their own prestige by running down another organization. Find that group which has a constructive program and a membership that enjoys the same kind of things that you enjoy. .

$16,500 Spent For Campus Improvements

House Parties Launch Fall Sorority Activity

Looking about the campus you will find that there have been quite a f e w changes made during the summer. In fact, $16,500 was spent in the remodeling, redecoration, and repaying of the campus buildings and grounds. The Memorial Chapel and the Science Building were the two buildings to receive most of the attention in this "house-cleaning" campaign. The chapel has had the interior washed and repainted f o r the first time since the edifice was completed in 1929. It took five men, six weeks to complete the job.

Book Fines Provide Library Improvements The appearance of the new Venetian blinds in the reading room of Graves' Library over the summer serves as another in a long list of improvements which the library staff under the direction of Miss Singleton has attempted to invoke over the past few years. The money for the blinds was taken f r o m the Student Fine Fund which Miss Singleton set up f o r just such internal improvements. In the past the money has been used f o r book-binding, steel racks, and redecoration purposes; but in order that the students might better be aware of the benefits of the project, Venetian blinds were chosen by the Council.

The Brooklyn soldier did it shortly before the armistice in company with two other men f r o m his outfit. They drove their retriever one-half mile behind enemy lines where the tanks had become bogged down. When the retriever, a converted M-4 medium tank, reached the spot, the enemy surrounded them on three sides according to the Army Times. "The mud came clear up over our wheels and up to our knees," Erickson said. "We had to drive up close to the tanks and then hook the winch cables up by crawling underneath the tanks, so we woudn't get shot by snipers. It took us f r o m an hour to an hour and a half to get a tank back into hard ground."

Snow, Cavanaugh Direct Glee Clubs, Chapel Choir Reitberg Conducts Chancel Chorus This year as in f o r m e r years try-outs were held f o r the chapel choir. Since the choir is limited to seventy members, the chancel choir has been created f o r the overflow of students who enjoy singing. Once again the chapel choir and men's glee club a r e under the direction of Dr. Robert Cavanaugh and Mrs. Curtis Snow is directing the women's glee club. The men in chapel choir also make up the men's glee club although the personnel in the girls' glee club and those in the choir are not entirely the same. The choir's tour of the E a s t , with its f e a t u r e stop at Radio City Music Hall, received such an enthusiastic response that the administration of Hope classifies the tour as one of the best "good will" policies of the college. It is still undecided what p a r t of the country the choir will tour next spring. Much will depend on where they get the most invitations. Last spring the choir recorded several numbers with R.C.A. Victor. A few of these long playing records are still available in the Blue Key Bookstore f o r $6.00. A small percentage of one of t h e shipments had flaws. If you obtained one of these, you may r e t u r n it to the Blue Key and the company will replace the record f r e e of charge. Chancel choir will meet f o r the first time this year on Thursday, October 1, in the Y.M.C.A. room. It will be under the direction of Mr. Roger Rietberg. The concert plans of the chancel choir are indefinite as yet. Mr. Rietberg is Director of Music a t t h e Third Reformed Church here in Holland, and he cordially welcomes anyone who enjoys singing to join the chancel choir. ».•

Flashy Runs Feature Dutch Rivalries Open In Tennis, FB, Assault On Comets, 2 5 - 0 Golf For Frats Hope had too much for Olivet here last Friday night, drubbing the MIAA newcomers, 25-0. Superiority in fundamentals, blocking and tackling, coupled with aggressiveness, was the difference. Using only a straight, simple offense, the Dutch rolled over the opposition easily. There were anxious moments, though, early in the game. Shadows of the ragged Normal contest remained as Hope fumbled the first two times they had the ball, Olivet recovering both. The defense pulled the team out of trouble. Then, a n electrifying 74 yard run by F r a n k Talarico behind excellent downfield blocking had the crowd roaring wildly—but a familiar red handkerchief on the field changed the cheers to cries of "Not again!" The touchdown was nullified and Hope penalized 15 yards f o r clipping. In the second period, Kempker broke loose f o r 52 yards and a T.D. The e x t r a point t r y was missed and the 6-0 score stood at half-time. On the kickoff s t a r t i n g the second half, Talarico took the ball, charged s t r a i g h t up the field behind a wedge of blockers, veered through, a hole t h a t opened to his left and sprinted f o r his first tally of the year, a run covering 92 yards. Again the e x t r a point was missed. Playing with more spirit, Hope shortly a f t e r connected f o r a T.D. on t h e i r first pass of the game, a 20 yard toss f r o m Voss to Adams. Kempker converted, making the score 19-0. With this lead. Coach A1 Vanderbush sent in his reserves the remainder of the 3rd quarter and most of the 4th, the first string returning in the final f o u r minutes to move the ball down to the Olivet 15, Talarico t a k i n g it over f r o m there. The g a m e ended with Hope on top, 25-0. Olivet had only two drives. One was broken up by Herm Nienhuis who intercepted a pass on his 27 and went to Olivet's 29. The other was a g i f t f r o m Hope as f o u r consecutive penalties, including 15 yards against Coach Vanderbush, were marched off. Trying to push across the goal line under their own power. Olivet's offense fizzled out. Downfield blocking had noticeably improved over the Normal performance, setting up long runs f o r the Dutch backs, who in turn used their blockers effectively. The backs, first and second string, were superb, running brilliantly at times and f a k i n g well.

Hope Hung By Hurons, Selves Hope's gridiron Dutchmen kicked off the '53 season by running up against a steady, strong Michigan Normal squad f r o m Ypsilanti in Riverview park but played them on even terms, a pair of Dutch bobbles setting up the margin of victory as the Hurons came out on top, 21-6. Twice the visitors pushed over tallies by almost identical means, each time getting possession of the pigskin bare yards from paydirt thru Hope misplays on punting attempts. The remaining y a r d a g e was easly eaten up to give the Hurons a 14-0 halftime lead. It was an intercepted pass by Fullback Ron Oestrike and a 22yard runback of it t h a t helped to put the contest out of reach of the Dutch squad in the final stanza, altho they bounced back with a potent drive that netted them a score before time ran out. John Adams sneaked t h r u f o r 26 yards to account f o r Hope's total. Game statistics, other t h a n the final score, give indication of the real closeness of the f r a y , the Dutch racking up more first downs than their opponents and outgaining them by two yards.

I n t r a m u r a l s activity between the fraternities, an independent squad, and a representation f r o m Western Seminary began this week in the three fall sports, touch football, tennis and golf, with play to continue in each during the ensuing weeks. Football setup lists two nights a week f o r play, Monday and Wednesday, g a m e s starting at 4:15 on the athletic fild. Two games per night are slated. Teams are made up of seven players each, with three linemen and f o u r backfieldmen. The g a m e s are governed by a body of rules drawn up by the intramural managers, one f r o m each f r a t e r n i t y and one f r o m the Seminary, and Russ DeVette, who is director of the intramural program. Tennis is to be run as in f o r m e r years, with divisions in singles and doubles. Each organization enters two singles players and one doubles team, a total of f o u r diff e r e n t men. A tourney schedule is drawn up and play advances according to it. As in the past, the finals in the singles will be played on Homecoming morning. F i r s t round action in the tournament s t a r t e d this week. A point system is used to determine the winning organization, one point being given f o r each advancing round a f t e r the first one. Golf teams composed of three men each, also are scheduled f o r immediate activity. Winning squad will be determined by the total team score, low tally winning. Each man is to play two rounds of eighteen holes each. f Each e n t r a n t will play his rounds at his own convenience, the only stipulation being t h a t a member of some other team be present at the time.

Grid Boss Waves Wand, Creates New Dutch Line With the limited substitution rule giving coaches around the nation an added headache this year, lest their offensive stars of previous campaigns prove inept defensively and their defensive aces fail on offense tactics, Dutch mentor A1 Vanderbush is facing the same situation this fall in fashioning a squad fense. Hermie Nienhuis, a backto pursue the MIAA trophy. The grid boss and line coach Ken Weller are masterminding a juggling act which has resulted in a f o r w a r d wall in which virtually every member is experiencing a new duty of some sort. Among those making a big switch is Captain Jim VanHoeven, who is out f o r some sort of record this year. Already twice holder of an allconference berth, once at the tackle slot and once at guard, the senior team leader will be shooting f o r the honor again this year but f r o m the end of the line. Always a deadly tackier, he is developing into a capable pass-snatcher also.

Enough Rope... •y


This is the year pre-released starting lineups again have more than a fifty-fifty chance of being correct. The may or may not, depending on the coin-flip, of the past few seasons is dated this year. Now the unit that opens has to go both ways. The anti-two platoon dictate was concocted since last season by some sort of authoritative body, with the real engineering allegedly handled by a few of the bigger big time athletic chiefs. What they have in mind can be inferred—college football is headed in an unhealthful, perhaps eventually disastrous, direction and something has to be done about it. But the validity of their methods is open to dispute. As long as such things as hiring of talent at fabulous sums —talent, that is, in a specific sport, certainly, in most cases,, not in anything else—are tolerated, as long as the ideals underlying academic institutions are made a travesty, there will be elements of rottenness in collegiate athletics, football - among them. Football evils are mostly limited to big time schools, where they go to ridiculous extremes to make believe they're good, or better, or best, or something like that. But there are small schools swept with vision of glory also and the movement is still forebodingly in that direction, giving rise to more foolish policies by more schools. These policies are no good and this new rule will do little to change them. About the only results from it will be a less cluttered field and more money talent on the bench. *





Among the ranks of fandom there are a great many unsavory types. But the lowest of all is the cur who hoots and jeers and cheers when someone on the other side gets crocked. ^*





We feel it noteworthy of mention that one of the members of the college has distinguished himself in one of the finer phases of current day living. Besides doubling as the dean of the college he has proved himself in the field of football forecasting, in which last Friday in a pre-game prediction he gave Hope a 24-0 victory.

2- Man Nucleus Plus Enough Help Leaves Green Unafraid An inexperienced team with only two lettermen back is t h e story of this year's Cross Country. But Coach Larry Green is highly optimistic and feels the better balance of t h e squad will offset the loss of several veterans. The two returning lettermen are Glen S t r a t s m a and Jesse King, who were kingpins in last year's second place finish. Making a s t r o n g bid f o r the number one spot is Ron DenUyl, who is a f r e s h m a n with several years of high school experience. Coach Green t e r m s him "the most promising m a n on the squad". Byron Aldrich, a veteran of the track team, also h a s looked good. Rounding out the team are

field man in his previous experience, is a new member of the line. The f o r m e r offensive fullback and defensive linebacker is now adapting himself to the guard position. Three rugged tackles, junior Bill Heydorn and sophs John Hollander and Doc VanHoeven, all just defensemen last year, a r e now going a both ways. Ed Stapert, a tackle on the offense and linebacker on defense in the past, is filling in a t guard on the c u r r e n t squad, dropping back to linebacker on most defensive plays. Always a capable blocker, Don VanderToll, who never played defensive ball before in either college or high school, is proving himself an adept tackier as well. Exlinebacker J o h n Brannock h a s been learning the f u n d a m e n t a l s of the offensive end position as well as still holding down his old spot.

Bernie Stremler, Henry Young, Ron Reinink, Gordie La m a n , Don Meeuwsen, Henry Van Farowe and Jack Moermond; all are inexperienced but show promise of f u t u r e success. Ted DeVries is handling the managerial duties. -.The schedule: Oct.
