Hoeksema has been outstanding in the International Relations Club and other groups. He is at present the editor of the Anchor.

Faculty Reception Is Held in Chapel The Hope Memorial Chapel was the scene of the annual student faculty reception on Sept. 20, with Miss Laura Boyd in c h a r g e and A Icon members assisting as hostesses. The reception helped to acquaint the students with members of the faculty whom they might not otherwise meet. The faculty members were placed in small groups in different rooms in the chapel, which were decorated with baskets of gladioli. Refreshments were served.

Local Men Added To Hope's Staff Hope's Business Administration department has been increased this fall by the addition of three new members. All three are associated with business concerns located here in Holland, and have played active p a r t s in civic affairs. Mr. Cornelius Vander Meulen is a local attorney and g r a d u a t e of Hope. He has long been a leading citizen of the community, having served as veterans advisor, and more recently as chairman of the Holland Centennial Commission. His work at Hope consists of teaching a course in Personnel Administration.

Hope College can now be proud of her dining rooms. For this we must acknowledge the work of the dining room committee and also those students who have cooperated with them in their efforts to improve our dining halls. When Hope College had a small enrollment her students and upper classmen took pride in the way in which the dining rooms were handled, they appreciated the old time formalities and the usual courtesies. With the increased enrollment at Hope, the students of today were skeptical. .Could the dining room committee handle the larger student body and maintain tradition? This has been accomplished. The value of etiquette in the dining rooms :an be appreciated by all students. Going to college includes the learning of cultural traits as well as the acquiring of facts and figures. The dining room committee deserves our i: h a n k s for their preservation of one of Hope's many traditions. C. J. I. o

Love Never Means Less students from various localities of t h e world It adds something of worth to what is ordinarily referred to as a liberal a r t s college It is a means of broadening one's understanding and enriching one's personal friendships We give credit to whomever it is due f o r giving us this educational benefit. However, there is more than j u s t privilege t h a t is ours because of the presence of these various groups of students. Responsibility becomes ours as well. Our responsibility is t h a t these students do not become "lost" on Hope's busy campus. They must not be con sidered as oddities or curios to be talked about but intellectually alert people who like to be talked to. T h a t means a genuine re reiving of them into campus life. Through Perhaps this year more than any other year, Hope has what might be properly termed a cosmopolitan campus. Like t h e educational counter-part of America's Statue of Liberty she has extended an invitation to students everywhere. Living responses have come from as f a r north as the Netherlands and as f a r south as Brewton, Alabama. For several years we have had students f r o m Iraq. In addition, Reformed church missionaries have often sent their children to Hope for their college training. We feel the uniqueness of this privilege of associating with the medium of invitations to our organizations, clubs, gatherings and worship services, we can in part fulfill our responsibility. There are some campuses of a secular nature where this responsibility is accepted rather voluntarily. However, we as students of a Christian college, are commanded very specifically by Christ Himself t h a t we "love one another." It is not a request, not a wish, but an actual command of our Lord. There is some confusion among theological schola r s as to the full meaning of this particular commandment and we of course do not profess to know the answer. The great German theologian, Emil Brunner, reflecting some of this confusion, said, "Love may not mean more t h a n justice, but it never means less." These students, coming f r o m various climes and countries don't ask for special privileges.

n the t e r m s of the welfare of our own country. We thought t h a t if we could make this country truly democratic and prosperous, the rest of the world would benefit f r o m our success. But this is only partly true. The depression showed us t h a t we cannot hope for prosperity while the rest of t h e world is in economic collapse. World W a r H has shown t h a t we cannot hope to remain at peace while the world is a t war. We now know t h a t war is the g r e a t e s t t h r e a t to our f u t u r e , and t h a t discontent in any p a r t of the world may breed a conflict t h a t thr eatens our very existence. We cannot have peace when men are hungry, or economic stability if men f e a r war. There are voices in this country still speaking for economic isolation but t h e world has gotten to a stage in economic development where no nation, not even t h e United States, can stand alone without g r e a t loss in income and a correspondingly low standard of living for its people. If for no other reason t h a n our own prosperity we must aid in forming a sound, world financial structure. However, the recovery of Europe is more than j u s t a business or economic problem. It is a problem in restoring men and women to self-respect, of g e t t i n g back decent and quiet lives f o r long-suffering children, or stopping the spreading sores of bitterness and hate t h a t will infect us, too, if they are not healed, In a m o d e m world, many of the most important social effects can be got a t only through economic arrangements, because freedom is not real to those who are starving or afraid. The economic restoration of Europe is p a r t of the problem of restoring the world, Europe and America and Asia together. Every country will have to decide whether it will work f o r or against success, and, every American m u s t realize t h a t success will be brought about by the traditional liberal American dream of a f r e e r world of trade — and t h a t dream can only be a reality if the United States aids in making it a reality. o

"We Look Forward

The semester is on its way and we a r e steeped in studies and e x t r a curricular activities. T h e first few weeks have shown lots of good planning on the p a r t of t h e faculty, and cooperation on the p a r t of the students. T h i n g s seem to be clicking. Let's see if we can keep t h e m t h a t way. There may be times, as the year progresses, when we feel t h a t the school is not operating according to its aims, or t h a t some policy being enforced is not according to our liking.

Incidentally, Carolyn did a lion's share in writing up the first issue of the Anchor, prior to the opening of school.

Our F e a t u r e Editor is Virginia Hemmes, Grand Rapids, Michigan. When it comes to digging up facts about the 'Rose Window', writing a column, such as 'Up and Atom', we call on Ginny and she either writes it or calls on one of her f e a t u r e writers. Are you interested in Hope's Societies? There is no b e t t e r authority as to what is going on and when than Dorothy Davis. Cuddebackville, New York. Dee needs a lot of help f r o m the Societies on the Campus. It would help a g r e a t deal if every society had someone responsible to her to insure that all societies have their news printed. We always call but with busy students, phones, and deadlines we sometimes must pass up your organization. Ruth Ruys is our Exchange Editor. This job entails receiving, searching, and filing the many papers we receive on an Exchange basis from Colleges and Universities throughout the United States. We call this our 'Idea Depar t m ent ' but Ruth is one of those people who would be an asset to any college paper. You name it — write, correct, check, collect news — Ruth will do it willingly and on time. We introduce a new member to the Staff in the person of Matthew Otte, of Oostburg, Wisconsin. Otto has taken over the editorship of the Sport page, at which g a m e he is a veteran — having served as Sports Editor for the Central College student paper. Howie Koop, with his 'Scoop with Koop', Bob Hill, Max Frego, and Ernie Meussen will introduce Otto to Hope's Sports and will continue to report on Hope's games.

This is not meant to imply, howaver, that students do not have the right to evaluate t h a t which goes on about them. But let's be honest and sincere in our evaluations, and constructive in our actions. The Student Council is our representative body. Let's let it work for us to accomplish what we feel needs accomplishing, or at least to bring things out in the open where all can see and understand. If we think the case w a r r a n t s it, the door of Dr. Lubbers office is always open and I am sure he would welcome the opportunity to relieve the strain which can arise from dissatisfaction. Let's k e e p this school year going on the right track and use our heads more and our tongues less. Sincerely yours. Bill Bennett.

Perhaps you wonder why we take the time and space to introduce the staff. Because these people are trying to improve the Anchor and are spending many hours a week in that endeavor. We want you to know who they are. Let them in on your news, either by telling them or dropping a note in the Anchor Box, top, left hand box. Room, Van Raalte Hall. Shorten their work by getting your news in on time; help your organization by insuring they will be mentioned in the next Anchor; Help yourself by improving your paper. The Editor.

Dear Editor: All of the old-timers (upperclassmen to you) at Hope seem to agree t h a t this year's crop of Freshmen is better t h a n ever. So far, I have but one bone to pick with the new-comers: they don't believe in signs. When our librarian posted Q U I E T and S I L E N C E signs in the periodical and reading rooms, she expected everyone to comply. Let's all, upperclassmen and f r e s h men alike, try to use the library as a place f o r study r a t h e r than chatter Sincerely, Roderick M. Keer. —o-

The Pricc of Love

Anxious eyes, filled with enthusiasm, are beaming f o r t h f r o m the upperclassmen around the campus. An experienced student can tell what all the excitement is about. The arrival of lowly, green " f r o s h " is the only thing that could create such a r um pus at this time of the year. Within days many of the societies will be taking in many of the foundlings.

The first step in the procedure was singing scales. I think the object of that phase was to see at which high note it was still possible to emit a reasonable amount of volume without turning blue in the face. The final step was to sing one part of a hitherto undisclosed hymn. At the last census there were over seventy men and more than ninety women t h a t tried out f o r one of these groups. For t h a t reason this promises to be a good year in the way of music for Hope College. Another reason why this year should be successful is the addition of the two new faculty members in the music department.
