If all of you hardened Easterners and Mid-Westerners are complaining about t h i s " M i c h i g a n W e a t h e r , " think of how it would feel had you been brought up in sunny California, where the only rain is " D r i z z l i n g Coca Cola." T h a t is e x a c t l y what A y a k o Shintaku and S u m i y e Konoshima, our t w o J a p a n e s e - A m e r i c a n students, think, for A y a k o has never yet experienced a s n o w f a l l . Ay a, w h o is sixteen, w a s born in California, a t t e n d i n g the public school through t h e eighth grade. S h e w a s then s e n t with her pare n t s to the P a s t o m Internment Camp in Arizona, where she attended h i g h school. She is now livi n g with the Rev. Marion DeVelder. Majoring in l a n g u a g e s , A y a finds that e v e n being able to speak the J a p a n e s e l a n g u a g e does not help

her with her principal parts and conjugations. P e t i t e e i g h t e e n - y e a r - o l d Sumi lived in an Internment Camp in W y o m i n g with her p a r e n t s until 1943 when the f a m i l y moved to N e w York City. She found the "big town" quite d i f f e r e n t from the f a r m in California. S h e attended George W a s h i n g t o n high school in N e w York, but is still quite partial to the California school, speaking directly f o r the C h a m b e r of Commerce, unquote. Living six miles out of town near Tunnel Park, Sumi f i n d s it rather difficult to g e t in to school. She is taking a general course, is interested in Sports, likes Music, and plays the violin, or, a s she so aptly put it, "plays at it." We hope A y a and Sumi come to love Hope as we do.

Using personal experiences as illustrations, he drew a clear picture of how we may learn to love our neighbor, and with a true love for oar neighbor we, too, have a love for God.

Debaters to Attend

On Friday night at 8:00 the traditional All-College Mixer will be held in the Carnegie Gymnasium. At this time all freshmen will don their "green," which will remain their identification for months to come. Along with the "green" come the following rules which are a must with all f r e s h m e n : (1) All frosh fellows must "pot" to upper-classmen with a sweeping bow, and "frosh" girls must make a pleasing curtsey. (2) Freshmen must wear their "green" at all times, on and off the campus, in and out of Holland. Only on Sundays are they exempt from these rules.

Frosh Discuss Plans For Later Meetings At a m e e t i n g in the Y W C A room last Friday n i g h t at 7:30, the F r e s h m e n girls, with Jean and Janet S n o w in c h a r g e , planned the o r g a n i z a t i o n of a F r e s h m e n Girls' Club to be sponsored by the PanHellenic Board.

It g i v e s me a terrible alone f e e l i n g — like an o r p h a n o r a l o s t s h e e p — t o have to leave the c o t t a g e and f a c e a civilized world. N o t h i n g can e v e r take the place of t h o s e sunny a f t e r n o o n s w h e n w e took t h e Little S t a r out and drifted a l o n g the lake. I like i t best w h e n I w a s stretched out on m y stomach o n t h e bow — m y cheek flat a g a i n s t the deck. I could look o v e r the side and see the tiny s i l v e r - w h i t e w a v e s slap the sides of the boat or I could close m y e y e s and feel the motion of the w a v e s . And as a puff of wind blew m y hair across m y f a c e , I could h e a r the jib r i e f i n g and I'd roll over on m y back and pull it out to catch the puff. I liked to look up b e t w e e n the jib and the m a i n sail at the clear blue sky and feel very content and peaceful. And d a y s when it w a s rough I loved s c a m p e r i n g f r o m one side of the boat to the o t h e r to k e e p it from t u r n i n g over. And the w e e k end when w e had the races the lake w a s filled with other c r e s c e n t s and with boats and y a w l s — that w a s really living. Another f a v o r i t e w a s m o r n i n g s when the w a v e s s o f t l y b r e a k i n g on shore would wake m e up e a r l y . I liked to put on m y b a t h i n g suit and run down to the lake f o r an e a r l y swim before the beach w a s crowded with resorters. D a y s when the w h o l e crowd got , t o g e t h e r w e r e fun too. W e o f t e n had a fire on the beach and cooked i our supper. When t h e a s h e s b e g a n : to wither and the wood had f a l l e n low, we s a t with our f e e t before the fire s i n g i n g all our special f a v o r i t e ! songs. And then we'd g o to s o m e ! one's c o t t a g e and play records and look at pictures and laugh at how w e used to look. And s o m e t i m e s w e played with ' our little brothers and piled into I their old car that t h e y had painted bright blue with b i g c o l o r e d dots. We'd drive into t o w n to the 1 movies and have hot f u d g e s u n d a e s afterwards.

By now, with r e g i s t e r i n g for c l a s s e s and all, y o u coeds have probably found y o u r minds, wond e r i n g j u s t what Carnegie Gymnasium h a s to o f f e r t h i s year. W.A.A. held its f i r s t m e e t i n g Wednesday, S e p t e m b e r 2(5, outlined its f o r t h c o m i n g program and named its c o m m i t t e e s for various activities. Libby Romaine, senior and president of W.A.A., has c h a r g e of archery. Pinks Mulder, senior and treasurer of W.A.A., is to take care of tennis. T o u r n a m e n t s and t e a m play are scheduled for next spring. Pat Haskin, the other senior representative, will make a r r a n g e m e n t s for s w i m m i n g at the Y in Grand Rapids this winter.

B o w l i n g will be even ir.ore f u n this y e a r with the d o w n s t a i r s at Levense's being made into alleys. Marcella W e s t e r m a n and P h y l l i s Dietrich, sophomores, have c h a r g e of a r r a n g e m e n t s f o r the sport. P h y l l i s also is t a k i n g care of plans for horseback riding. Alida Kloost e r m a n , sophomore, is to m a n a g e hiking. P i n g - p o n g and badminton will not be included in the major activities unless e n o u g h g i r l s are interested. One big item of interest last year, the girls' football g a m e , will not be included in the schedule this year because of the danger and accidents incurred last fall. That's about all, honey c h i l e s — ( y e h , I can't stand to be called that e i t h e r ! ) — b u t to m y w a y of t h i n k i n g : that's plenty! The W . A .

THE KIBITZER . . . . by Karstcn & Stoppcls Well, well, here we are again, another school term . . . And another super edition of the faithful old ANCHOR . . . Seeing as how this is the Sports page, we, of this department hereby dedicate our lives and pencils to said page and promise to report to all you sophisticated Seniors, jiving Juniors, syncopated Sophomores and strictly on the ball Froshies, the latest news and communiques from the local and national sports world . . . including news about the Tigers . . . and Cubs . . . Speaking of animals, there are quite a lot of different species of that animal called something spelled W-O-L-F . . . You girls know what we mean . . . There is one very interesting one called "Bob" who is on the loose after a certain blonde (aren't they always?) premed student . . . girl, of course . . . I suggest to you girls who are bothered with said animals that you take refuge in the ANCHOR office and we of the Sports page will take care of you . . . Grrr . . . Woof! . . . Well, all you fellas and girls that are taking gymnasium from Jack are through with your easy life on the campus . . . Yup, gym classes start next week for sure . . . We suggest either the Model or some other drug emporium for a good big jar, bottle, or tube of some kind of strong liniment . . . For further information, see anyone who took gym last semester . . . Also, Jack asked us to announce that any of the fellows who are interested in the cross-country race should see him soon . . . If none of the fellows turn out . . . no cross country . . . Well, whatcha waiting for? . . . Go N o w ! . . . Dean Hinga was out last week with a bad cold . . . He wasn't really sick but he just couldn't talk . . . We missed you coach . . . Speaking of missing things, a pair of pliers was missed one day in Zwemer Hall by a fellow on the second floor and he went to see the fellow who borrowed it on the ground floor, who in turn found he didn't have it, but had lent it to a fellow on the first floor where the little culprit turned up . . . Just goes to show you that you should beware of pliers 'cause even pliers "get around" . . . Speaking of "getting around" brings us right back to that cross-country . . . Any of you strongsilents gone to see Jack yet, once again? . . . If it's a little incentive you need, maybe we could arrange to have one of those good looking Freshmen girls in their green bonnets, which, incidentally, we get at the mixer the fifth of October, to run ahead of you and you could chase them over the course . . . or vice versa . . . man shortage you know . . . Speaking of shortages, we think of the shortage of Sophomore men . . . boys . . . and the pull this year . . . Maybe all for the better . . . We expect all the Soph boys out with pneumonia after that cold water . . . In case you didn't know, this was written by a couple of Freshmen . . . So gals, it's up to you and the Nykerk Cup whether or not we bow . . . hateful word . . . or not to these Sophs . . . Speaking of weather or not . . . (Joke, ha! ha!) . . . wasn't it a swell day for the "Y" beach party? . . . This really doesn't have much to do with spoils . . . does it? . . . Except for Don Ingham and some of the other "men's" beautiful form as an occasional football flew through the air, and another "sport" characteristic of the- seashore, nothing much happened along the sport line . . . unless you call eating a sport . . . and it is with certain people . . . A few of the more intelligent Freshmen went for a short ride on the waves and came back a little on the wet side but quite sane . . , A f t e r the skating party many students were seen rubbing bruised arms and legs, and walking lightly on heel or toe, the other end of which had an aching blister biting into the foot . . . Another communique from our good friend Jack . . . The honorable Mr. Schouten has asked us to inform all fellows who have from four o'clock on, free, who would like to play touch football, softball or what have you, should come to the gym at four, and through one of these forms of athletics you can work off some of that extra energy you have lying around . . . Note to you former Holland High students, and to anyone interested in football . . . The Holland Dutchmen play Muskegon Heights Friday night at Riverview Park . . . The Heights beat the Dutch last season and the Holland team is out to win this time so it ought to, and will be, a swell game Well, gang, that's about all for now, more news in the next issue of the ANCHOR . . . Don't forget to get one!
