This is the second of o u r r e g u l a r Chapel services. T h e r e will be, t h e Lord willing, one h u n d r e d and fifty more. W h a t a r e t h e s e t w e n t y m i n u t e Chapel periods t o m e a n to u s ? I would s a y t h e y a r e t r e m e n d ously i m p o r t a n t f o r t h e r e a s o n t h a t as a college we read and listen to t h e W o r d of God. I hope t h e r e will be little, if a n y , preaching. P r e a c h i n g is to be done by p r e a c h e r s on o t h e r occasions.

T h e Bible doesn't tell us a b o u t g r a s p i n g principles o r propositions. On t h e c o n t r a r y , it is t h e t e s t i m o n y of men who were g r a s p e d by God in t h e mi ds t of the crucial and e v e r y d a y e v e n t s of t h e i r lives. God revealed Himself in concrete s i t u a t i o n s where men w e r e living. As t h e n , so today. The Bible, t h e r e f o r e , m u s t not be read f o r t h e reason t h a t we m a y learn a b o u t J a c o b o r David o r P a u l and t h e i r encounters with God. But a s J a c o b w a s g r a s p e d , so we m u s t be g r a s p e d . A s J a c o b exlaimed, " S u r e l y God is in t h i s p l a c e ! " w e m u s t realize t h a t God is in t h i s place. J a c o b added, " I k n e w it not." If you w a n t m e to give t h e reason f o r o u r Chapel services, it is t h a t we m a y k n o w t h a t a s we go f o r t h to do o u r w o r k as college s t u d e n t s and f a c u l t y , t h a t God h a s g r a s p e d us, t h a t he knows us, t h a t he loves us. T h a t consciousness, and only t h a t , gives life itself, and also o u r own individual t a s k and t h e work of the college, m e a n i n g and value. I a m not s a y i n g t h a t we shall see no m e a n i n g in life unless we t o g e t h e r read and listen to God's W o r d a t t h e b e g i n n i n g of each day.

Gerald Kennedy tells us t h a t it t a k e s c o u r a g e to read the Bible. It is impossible to really read it without f e e l i n g as if a f r e s h breeze were flowing t h r o u g h y o u r life. T h e routine and boredom is blown a w a y , and in its place comes an e x h i l a r a t i n g sense of t h e wonder and miracle of life. T h e Bible is t h e g r e a t a w a k e n e r . It b r i n g s us f a c e to f a c e w i t h God. It j u d g e s us and is too f a r beyond us to m a k e o u r j u d g m e n t s of it a n y t h i n g but p r e s u m p t u o u s . T h e Bible is not a set of rules defining our r e l a t i o n s h i p to God, but if we r e a d it a r i g h t it c r e a t e s an e n v i r o n m e n t so t h a t His S p i r i t can act upon us directly. The Bible a f f i r m s t h e activity of God in history. The men in the Bible had an inescapable conviction t h a t t h e y had been c o n f r o n t e d by God. Take, f o r example, J a c o b in the S c r i p t u r e p a s s a g e of t h e m o r n i n g . J a c o b d o e s n ' t tell us about knowing God as a n object of reflective t h o u g h t . H e encountered God himself and w a s d r a w n into a re l a t i o n ship with Him in which he was known, j u d g e d and loved. God w a s his ever p r e s e n t Lord and companion.

Sororities Bid,

& Fete

Frosh Familiarized,

Meet, Pledges

Feted and Flouted!

Hope's sororities initiated the year's events a t their traditional house parties held during the opening week of college. Old members were reunited a f t e r the long summer vacation, and the sophomore girls were bid. The pledges, having received their bids, are now being welcomed into the sororities. Delta Phi entertained their new pledges a t an informal tea held a t the home of Dr. and Mrs. J . Dyke van Putten last Saturday. Chairman of the g a t h e r i n g was Deanna Deas. The formal pledge dinner will be held in early October, a f t e r the pledging of t r a n s f e r students. Last Friday the Dorians greeted their new pledges at a formal pledge dinner held in Cumerford's. Barbara Wolfe, Pat Parker, and J o Ann Van Lierop were in charge of this annual event. The Sibs were also among the first to welcome the pledges. The occasion was the pledge dinner held last Friday in Holland. The Sibs have planned a bike hike f o r active members and pledges to be held Saturday, Sept. 29th. Departure time is 6:30 A.M. Sorosis held an informal meeting last Monday to officially greet their new pledges. Last night, a t the Hub r e s t a u r a n t in Zeeland, the pledges were honored at the formal dinner. Ellie Bylsma and Marlene H a r t g e r i n k planned the affair. With Homecoming f a s t approching, pledges and actives will be spending much time preparing f o r the traditional events. The activities of the sororities f o r the Homecoming celebration include the construction of a float to be displayed in the p a r a d e and, also, a luncheon to welcome back the Alumni.

"Pot F r o s h " h a s once again invaded the vocabulary of Hope College students. Green to the ways of college life, f r e s h m e n are struggling to make the transition f r o m royal guests to servitude in the desperate attempt to eventually achieve the s t a t u s of college students. Introduction to their fellow plebes came at the Freshman Mixer held in the Civic Center where amidst balloons and newspaper costumes they demonstrated their originality and conviviality under the direction of Lois Bos. The thrill of singing around the campfire at the Y beach party will remain a fond memory in the background of those first few days of confusion. Thursday evening they became officially indoctrinated concerning campus organizations. Mary Ann Vollink chairmaned this event which was an auspicious one since the frosh chose their class leaders — their first symbol of unity. But the All-College Mixer Friday night brought a rude awakening when the frosh discovered t h a t sophomores had keen memories, particularly memories of last year's mixer. Barb van Putten was in charge of the a r r a n g e m e n t s f o r the evening in which frosh were cast into their appropriate role. Kangaroo Court brought new revelations of the conspicuous degradation and humility of college f r e s h men. Ted Redding supervised the administration of justice according to the ancient traditions of the campus. General chairman of the F r e s h m a n Orientation P r o g r a m f o r the Student Council was Lois Hoeksema. Only time will reveal whether or not the Class of '60 will find a niche of honor among the other renowned scholars of the past. Although it be through the slime of Black River or the tedious rehearsals for Nykerk Cup, it is hoped t h a t the green frosh will someday soon discard their green and join the r a n k s of the orange and blue.

It is a city of the Middle Ages preserved f o r the people of the Twentieth Century. A f t e r t h e two tremendous days in Venice, it was again time to load up the busses and s t a r t out. Our destination was Vienna. We continued our drive through the plain of northern Italy, although in a northerly direction instead of the eastern tack we had taken from Milan to Venice. By early afternoon, we could see the foothills of the Italian Alps in the distance. As we continued, the valley grew narrower, and the river which we were following, feeling the pinch of this shrinking, also became more narrow. The hills on both sides rose higher. We started to climb. Everyone was peering first out of one side of the bus and then the other to see the beautiful scenery of the nearing Alps. Some of the higher peaks had traces of snow on them. Halfway through t h e mountains, we passed f r o m Italy into Austria. It was late afternoon when we reached Klagenfurt, the midway point to Vienna, and our stopping place f o r the night. A f t e r either going swimming in t h e nearby lake or walking through the city, we all turned in.

For example, both teams made the same number of first downs (13) and Hope trailed only slightly in ground yardage (207 to 178) — Note: Heidelberg is ranked number one in the nation in small college football. *

Several Hope men incurred injuries during the game. Halfback Mert Vanderlind suffered a side injury, but its extent was not known by this writer. Captain and fullback Dave Kuyers will submit his sprained ankle to whirlpool t r e a t m e n t s this week, and if the ankle responds well. *

I n t e r f r a t e r n i t y sports will begin sometime in the near f u t u r e , the fall competition being in touch football, tennis, and golf. The Cosmos will be out to retain the coveted All-Sports Trophy which they won in last year's extremely close race. The F r a t e r s and Arkies who also were contenders right through 'til the end, will be trying to snatch it away. The Emmies will be tough, too, and the Knicks will be the spoilers. This column will indicate the team standings as the year goes on. For the benefit of f r e s h men and other new students, the Seminary and the Independents field teams but do not receive points and thus are not included in the standings. Points are awarded as follows: Major sports, which include touch football, volleyball, basketball, Softball and May Day ( t r a c k ) ; 10 f o r first, 8 f o r second, 6 f o r third, 4 f o r fourth, and 2 f o r f i f t h : Minor sports, which include tennis, golf, handball, and bowling, 5-4-3-2-1. Duplicate points will be awarded in case of a tie.

The Fall I n t r a m u r a l program is beginning to make headway under the direction of Tom H a r r i s and Jim Cooper. An organizational meeting was held this past week with all the intramural managers being present, and the main topic of discussion was where the fall football p r o g r a m should be held. If a suitable sight cannot be located, football may have to be abandoned for one year until the campus expansion has ceased. Football, always one of the highlights of intramurals, is organized into a league of seven teams; one from each f r a t e r n i t y and representatives f r o m the Seminary and the Independents. Each team plays six games, one each against the other teams in the league." The Sem and the Indies are not included in the final standings in regard to the All Sports Trophy. The teams to beat should once again be the Arkies and the F r a t e r s , last year's co-champs w i t h identical 5-1-0 records. Tennis will be represented by two singles men and a doubles team from each f r a t e r n i t y , the Seminary, and the Independents. Last year Dennis Camp, an Indie, defeated the F r a t e r ' s Dave Bosch 6-3, 6-3 to gain the singles crown, and Dwight Riemersma and Dave Spaan also of the F r a t e r s were defeated by the Sem team of Sam Hoffman and Lou Benes 6-3, 6-1. The F r a t e r s are the defending champs as they squeaked out a Vt point win over the Seminary. Golf will again be held at the Saugatuck Golf Course with the champion Cosmos trying to retain their position a t the top of the heap. Golf t e a m s consist of three men f r o m each f r a t e r n i t y . These three men get together with three other men and play a total of 27 holes. They are playing against each other as teams as the team score is the only thing that counts

With the strong nucleus of last year's cross country team, which finished the conference in 4th place, Hope's outlook f o r success this year is surely not on the dim side. Herb Widmer, returning senior captain. Jack Walchenbach, Ron Den Uyl, and Carroll Bennink form this strong base which with a little help from the new men should be rough on the opposition. All are seniors except Bennink who is a sophomore. Fighting f o r the remaining point position on the squad are Fred Leaske and John Needham, sophomores, H a r r y Wister, a promising freshman, along with Bill Swarts and Andy Felix. If these men could now get a little help from the remainder of the Student Body, it would really help create a championship team. A full squad consists of twelve men and as everyone can see Hope has only an nine man team. There is still a lot of room on the team, and of course,, improvement is always appreciated.

Hope College's Dutchmen went down to d e f e a t before the powerful second-half onslaught of Heidelberg College. The Student Princes, a f t e r holding a slim 7-6 half-time lead, broke loose and scored five times in the second half to dump Hope 41-12 in the season's opener. Heidelberg displayed the power that made it one of the nation's Hope-Heidelberg Statistics top small college teams in 1955.

The Team From Crawfordsville Hope Colleges gridiron stalwarts faced the "Little Giants" of Wabash College in the home opener Saturday night. The Dutchmen met the Wabash gridders f o r the first time in history in what was a real test f o r both teams. Wabash, a college composed of 600 men, is located in Crawfordsville, Indiana. The "Little Giants" are not affiliated with any conference as they prefer to schedule teams from all areas of the midwest. Out of this college have come some of the outstanding small college teams in recent years. This year's Wabash roster includes thirty-five upper classmen and twenty freshmen. Included on the squad are twelve returning lettermen f r o m last year's team, which had a record of five wins, three losses, and one tie. The Wabash forward wall averages 202 pounds and is anchored by tackle Bill Shoaf who tips the scales at 250 pounds. He was rated first team All-State before entering the service in 1954. In order to strengthen the backfield Coach Garland Frazier is converting end Tom Hankinson, 1955 Little All-State player, into a left halfback. Leading runner on the squad will probably be southpaw right halfback Bill Gabbert who averaged 4.3 yards per carry and scored six touchdowns last season. Quarterback Vic Landovisl will probably handle most of the passing having completed 38 passes in 72 a t t e m p t s f o r 682 yards and 8 touchdowns. The fullback chores will be handled by Tom Marchando, a regular guard on last years team. • Thus • the "Little Giants" should have a powerful backfield averaging 182 pounds. The Wabash gridders were very impressive last week when they walloped Albion by a 26-7 score in their season opener. Their split-T offense proved to be too powerful for the Britons as the "Little Giants" scored twice on the ground and twice t h r u the air. Hope's defense got a real test in the home opener f o r the 1956 gridiron season.

Thus the Dutch left the field at half time trailing one of the best small college teams by one point. During t h a t half the men of Hope had played very fine ball and appeared to be outcharging Heidelberg. However, in the second half Heidelberg showed just why they are rated so highly by taking full advantage of every mistake made by the Dutchmen.

On the third play of the third q u a r t e r Little Ail-American halfback Walt Livingston streaked behind the Hope defense and grabbed a pass f o r a touchdown and a 14-6 lead. This play seemed to break the Dutch and gave the Student Princes the impetus they needed. Heidelberg played excellent ball f r o m t h a t point and took full advantage of long punt returns, intercepted passes, and mental lapses to build up a 34-6 lead before Hope could get a sustained drive going in the final period. The Dutch returned a kick-off to their own 39 yard line and then began the drive f o r their second touchdown. Halfback Peter W a t t climaxed the 61 yard march by crashing over f o r the score f r o m a yard out. W a t t ' s t r y f o r the e x t r a point was missed and Hope trailed 34-12. Heidelberg closed out the scoring by pushing across a touchdown with only five seconds remaining to top t h e Dutch by 41-12. ff
