Britain because of t h e failure of her






Africa. They say it is the worst blunder she has committed in a badly managed year of war. This may be true, biit let us look a t it from another angle. The plan was conceived by the Free-French General De Gaulle wht believed t h a t those i- renchmen who were safely out of the reach of the German reich were as anxious to perpetuate the




"liberte, egalite, f r a t e r n i t e " as he. He believed that, given an opportunity, they would gladly turn over to the protection of Great Britain those colonies for which they were responsible. And we have no reason, yet, to suppose t h a t he was not right in t h a t assumption, for it was never put to the test. T H E Y D I D N T KNOW What De Gaulle and the British did not know when they set out on t h a t very secret mission was that the secret had run before them and t h a t t h e puppet government at Vichy, under orders f r o m Germany, had dispatched emissaries to Dakar — men who convinced the French that serious reprisals would result if Dakar was taken. And how did the secret get out? The answer is very simple: England is not a t war with France, therefore the Vichy government of Fiance has a representative in London. He is an accredited diplomat with a diplomat's privileges and immunities. Could Germany w a n t a better " f r o n t " from which to spy upon the British? NO HONOR NOW England is still thinking in t e r m s of the pre-Hitler age when there were such things as individual and national honor and international law, in which the world found a certain security, even in time of war. That day is past; and until, and unless, England ceases to t r e a t Hitler and those who represent him as meTi of iKmor, her m a t e secrets will continue to be known on the Wilhelmstrasse as soon as they are at No. 10 Downing street.

Well, there's nothing like a skating p a r t y to break the ice — wf M f t

If any of you are wondering what that peculiar specimen of humanity, seen sporting about the smoothest duds you've ever set your binoculars on, is—well, my charming inmates of Hope's university— that is a freshman. And what a change! J u s t ask our dear ivycovered walls, they'll tell you—and they've seen plenty. Gone is the age of bliss which axisted in innocence. Gone are the days of a real green frosh. Gone are the days when an honest day's work was the sale of chapel seats. So, with a glass of just plain unadulterated H-two-O, we give -a toast to the frosh of 1940. Here's to the freshman boy with the broad shoulders, with a career of dates that would shock any senior. You don't have to help him out or show him around the campus. What good would t h a t do when he is even furnished with a bodyguard day and night (something new in the curriculum this year). Here's to his w a r d r o b e from Esquire, his scintillating person-

A p p a j i n g in t h e Monday edition of the " G r a n d Rapids P r e s s " was the following headline in type a half inch high, " H o p e Takes Spotlight In ^ t a t e Grid S t a g e " . Beneath this the story, an Associated Press release ran, "Michigan stole t h e national s p o t l i g h t with its r m a s h i n g 41-0 t r i u m p h over California's Bears last weekend, but within the s t a l e little Hope college won a t t e n t i o n f r o m the gridiron f a i t h ful".

Outweighed in the line and backfield, the Hopemen will have to depend upon speed to balance t h a t disadvantage. The Alma team uses the most deceptive offense in the league. Using a double wing back f o r m a t i o n , the backfield men crowd the line, m a k i n g it difficult to spot the ballcarrier, and crack hard and f a s t into the line. In the first half of last y e a r ' s g a m e with this t e a m , Hope w a s pushed all over the field, in the second half.

Displaying a speedy offense and an iron-clad defense, the 1941) Hope grid m a c h i n e rolled up its first victory of the season F r i d a y night over a h e a v y F e r r i s t e a m to the tune of 35-0. S u p e r b blocking, coupled with spectacular open-field r u n n i n g accounted f o r the margin gained by the H i n g a m e n during the course of the evening. Of no Httle i m p o r t a n c e in the eyes of the powers t h a t be and s p e c t a t o r s was the f a c t t h a t Hope was able to put on the field a " s o p h o m o r e " squad t h a t a p p e a r e d j u s t as effective a g a i n s t F e r r i s as did the varsity. Within the first five minutes of play, Hope made its first touchdown. An exchange of punts found the ball in Hope's possession on F e r r i s ' 47-yard line. Then Bob Idema, Grand Rapids senior, slicing off his r i g h t tackle and c u t t i n g back across the field, romped through the entire F e r r i s t e a m to cross the goal line. M o n t g o m e r y converted for the e x t r a point. This ended the scoring, but not the excitement f o r the first q u a r t e r . Jones, F e r r i s tackle, blocked one of Montgomery's p u n t s , c a u g h t the ball, and ran down to Hope's 23 before he was b r o u g h t down f r o m behind by Idema and De Fouw. This t h r e a t was quickly stopped when our defense held F e r r i s to a three-yard gain in their regulation f o u r downs.

The backfield seems to be t h e most o u t s t a n d i n g point of t h e squad, with such backs as G a r r y Koopsen, f o r m e r K a l a m a z o o s t a r ; Alky Muilenberg, f r o m six-man football in Iowa; Joe W h i t w o r t h , t r a n s f e r f r o m R u t g e r s ; and Gene Rothi f r o m G r a n d H a v e n h i g h . G a r r y is a f a s t and s h i f t y boy, who can kick, pass, and r u n with equal d e x t e r i t y . Alky is a n o t h e r f a s t m a n who can throw or catch a pass well enough f o r any coach. Joe is not quite as f a s t as t h e s e two, but he is a terrific blocker, and his two hundred pounds s t a n d him in good stead as a h a r d c h a r g ing fullback. Gene Rothi, a smooth ball player, rounds out this q u a r t e t , and will probably be heard f r o m quite a bit. The line is still a little in t h e rough, but h a s the promise, with weight and fight, of proving to be a m i g h t y good one.

Page Four Cumbersome Laws Cheat Collegians O f Voting Age F U L T O N , Mo.—(ACP) — Thousands of American college students are virtually disfranchised because of "cumbersome" absentee voting laws, it is pointed out by Dr. F r a n c L. McCluer, president of Westminster college. His conclusion is based on a survey by the college's institute of public affairs. , Dr. McCluer said more than 100,000 students of voting age " a r e discouraged or actually forbidden to exercise their voting franchise." The survey discovered little conf o r m i t y in s t a t u t e s . Missouri and Oklahoma specify t h a t absentee voting is possible only within state boundaries, while Rhode Island and Virginia insist it is legal only if the voter is outside the boundaries. Citing varied restrictions in numerous other s t a t e s . Dr. McCluer concludes: "This situation is particularly undemocratic and senseless. College boys and girls of voting age, presumably studying to become better citizens, have neither the inclination nor the encouragement to cut through the red tape of absentee voting."
