FRESHMEN VICTORS IH ANNUAL PULL LARGE CROWD WATCHES ANNUAL FROSH-SOPH CO N T E ST Sophs Take to the Water A f t e r Hard Tussle A f t e r a short but hotly contested struggle last Friday afternoon, the Freshmen quite easily pulled t h e Sophomores to their side of the river in the annual tug-of-war f o r supremacy. The victory was doubly an achievement because thw North side, on which the Sophomores pulled, w a s generally conceded to have the advant a g e of position. A large crowd of both students and townspeople gathered on both banks of the river some time before the first whistle blew. Twenty men pulled on each side as representatives of their respective classes. The Freshmen, owing to the larger numbers from which they had to choose, had the heavier men, outweighing the Sophs by about five pound apiece. The usual f r a n t i c kicking and dirt throwing accompanied the diggingin process. When the whistle blew f o r the "pull-off" each side took up a foot or two of slack and then set£d down to wait f o r t h e end of the rty minutes of "hole-pulling." A tentative "heaves" were made, it was evident that the coaches •e saving their men f o r the final, ical struggle. A f t e r the signal given to rise, Iwwever, the F r e s h immediately began to take in They were well coached and heaved steadily while the Sophomores were disconcerted from the first and on account of the yelling of the crowd were unable to get the signals f r o m their coaches. In seven minutes they were all in the river and, altho they hung on gamely all the way across, were soon pulled thru. The coaches f o r the Sophomores were: Prins, Fell, and Ridding; those for the F r e s h m e n : Ottipoby, Reimersma, and Irving. o JUNIORS CELEBRATE P U L L NIGHT AT L A K E S I D E INN When the shades of night descended and old Mr. moon smiled upon the Lakeside Inn, he witnessed a spectacle which made even him laugh with delight. The "pull" was over. We had completed our task, and the Frosh had successfully bathed the pitiful Sophs, under the leadership of our • f a i t h f u l classmates. Why shouldn't we feel elated? In this spirit, the class of '25 collected a t the rendezvous to enjoy, (and enjoy they did), the annual Pull P a r t y . Vim and vigor were there with their colleagues Hopeism and pep. With this addition to the crowd the inevitable result was: f u n and sociability. The eats, as ever the attraction of the evening, were r a t h e r delayed, b u t truly they were worth while waiting for. All decided t h a t they were the best ever. A f t e r the spread, the old adage, "Eat—drink a n d be m e r r y " w a s followed and the president turned the remainder of the evening to the program committee. Then a program of singing, music and readings, capped by brief speeches by the chaperones, was earnestly appreciated by the class. That the evening was too short was proclaimed by all, as the I n t e r r u r b a n a r r v e d to carry us back to old—not V i r ^ i a , but Holland. o Don't tftiss a very important p a r t of your college education: Lecture Course.

HOPE PLANS BIG YEAR IN ATHLETICS FOOTBALL G A M E W I T H J U N I O R OCT 6TH, O P E N S ACTIVITIES Season Tickets-Now-On-Sale E v e r y t h i n g is in readiness f o r one of the biggest and best athletic seasons ever enjoyed a t Hope College. W i t h seven veterans back f o r football, 5 f o r basketball, 8 f o r baseball, 5 f o r track and a score of likely looking material in the Freshmen Class, Coach Schouten is well supplied f o r material. Splendid schedules are being arranged and coupled with g r e a t amount of pep shown by the students a t the first mass meeting, makes all indications point to a banner y e a r in athletics. So let us all get on the m a r k , get set, and go. In other words, everybody get your season ticket, keep your work caught up, and go to the first game on S a t u r d a y Oct. 6th, when Hope plays Junior College of Grand Rapids, and keep on going to every athletic contest that comes along and you will surely be a winner. I t is the duty of every student to purchase an athletic ticket and to support the teams by a t t e n d i n g the games. Every y e a r some students ref u s e to buy these tickets, but let us be different this year and everybody buy one and come out to all the games. Season tickets cost only |5.00 and they are a mighty fine investment. Football is first in the line of athletics. At the beginning of the season things looked very doubtful f o r a winning team, but seven vetera n s have returned and several others, who have had some experience, a r e t r y i n g f o r positions. Van Lente, Doekson, Van Der H a r t , Damson, Van Den Brink, J o n k m a n , and Van Der Meer are the veterans of last years t e a m . R. Fell, a member of the 1921 t e a m is trying out f o r a position. Van Veerst, who played l e f t tackle last y e a r , is expected to r e t u r n to the t e a m this week. E s s e n b a g g w s , Van E n a a m , D a m s t r a and Ottipoby have had some experience. While t h e rest of the material is mostly green there a r e same good looking candidates a m o n g them. Athough conditions are n o t as bright a s they m i g h t be, chances are t h a t a good team will be developed. Lets see every student and Faculty member out to the first game, Saturday a f t e r n o o n a t Waterworks Park.

To those acc^ijamted with Dr: x <Jodf/ey in his work in the D e p a r t m e n t of Chemistry, the loss is a double one. During his long period of f a i t h f u l service a t Hope, the Dep a r t m e n t of Chemistry has become one of the s t r o n g e s t of the institution. Through his efforts m a n y men obtained scholarships a t the greatest universities of this country. All these regard their early training und e r Dr. Godfrey as invaluable. By t h e spring of . 1923 the Chemistry Dep a r t m e n t had become so s t r o n g t h a t it was enabled to organize a Chemi s t r y Club which was due largely to t h e interest in t h e science which had been aroused in the minds of the students by their teacher. Surely Hope will always remember and appreciate t h e conscientious efforts of this professor.

A f t e r everything has been said and done, we've come back again to find the improvements cited in "De Hope" and "The Leader" as being numerous and noteworthy in recent years. The interior of Van Vleck, the Sentinel said, is like a millionaires' palace. Voorhees was decked as a bride— t h a t is, with flowers—for over a week. From new. law-mowers to new cement driveways, everything seems to have a f r e s h n e s s and an exhilarating effect t h a t indicate a wonderful year. As a climax to these businessman-made changes, we are passsing thru the time when N a t u r e does her part, and the ivy grows red on the library wall.

Reports indicate t h a t the Hope College Lecture Course this year is very popular. The p r o g r a m is of an ideal nature, consisting of three special numbers, one of which in itself ranks as the foremost of its kind. The first number comes on Oct. 16. This is the famous Charles Marshal Co. Mr. Marshal is one of America's leading tenors. He brings with him some of the best opera artists f r o m Chicago. Single Admission tickets f o r this number will sell a t $3.00 and $4.00. Several salesmen are selling the season tickets. An intensive drive is under w a y with the result of a successive sale. Mr. Harrington, an official of the Redpath Company and under whose supervision t h e business m a n a g e r went out last summer, w a s very much pleased with the reports of the Hope Lyceum course.
