AS I SEE IT • IY •

Calvin Vandcr Wcrf America today is confronted with one of the greatest paradoxes of all time. We are a nation of one hundred thirty million selfgoverning people who know t h a t war is a crime—foul, loathsome, futile. Never before has this country espoused such intense devotion to peace. Ninety per cent of thousands of youths with whom I have talked—fellow university students, professional men, laborers, and unemployed—solemnly affirm that they would prefer to rot in jail rather than to fight a war other than to defend our land. Our government seems sincere in its desire to keep us out of war. Our military authorities, themselves, are most vociferous in their demands that we remain neutral. There is no danger of our shores being threatened by a foreign invader. For the present, it is the wish of all governments to remain on good terms with the United States. And yet, a majority of our people wag their heeds mournfully and say "we can't stay out."

Fraternities End Rushing Time With Bids Pledge Announcement Made By Office On Monday Ru.-Uiing officially ended Monday noon when Dr. J. Harvey Kleinheksel, inter-fraternity council advisor, announced the end of quiet ueriod. Seventy-seven men had pledged to the four fraternities on the campu«. Both bids and replica were handled through the college office by Dr. Kleinheksel. Rushing activities included series of society meetings, banquets and other entertainments. Individual rushing made movie-going and | "coke"-drinking the order of the day for the past week. An innovation by the inter-fraternity council this year was the inter-fraternity beach party held Thursday, Sept. 21, at Tunnel Park, for the new men on the campus. Each fraternity sent two representatives to the party to get acquainted with the new men. Acive lushing ended officially last Thursday at midnight, and the bids were in the office Friday morn" ing at 9 o'clock. The bids were distributed, and the replies returned, under the direction of Dr. Kleinheksel. Rules under which lushing activities were controlled were adopted by the men of t h e student council, acting as an inter-fraternity council, at a meeting held Friday, Sept. 13. Edwin Luidenn, president of the student council, stated Monday that no penalties had been inflicted on any group this year because of a rules viola1 I tion. (see p. 4 for pledges.)

Their foreboding is not illfounded. Already, there are at work those subtle currents of subversive propaganda which, despite any neutrality laws, may suck us a second time into the bloody vortex. But there is available a weapon which could stem the tide and make peace a permanent reality in this country—the counter current of peace propaganda.

Coming to Hope's campus f o r their annual fall meeting and an inspection of new Commons Room, the Women's League of the Particular Synod of Chicago will convene Oct. 11, it was announced yesterday by Mrs. Van't Hof, piesident of the organization.

At an afternoon meeting last Wednesday the newly elected Commons Committee, consisting of two representatives from each literary society and the independent group, met to elect officers and lay plans for the opening of the Commons Room. Gertrude Visscher, senior, was unanimously appointed to head the body. Cy Voogd, junior, was chosen vice-president. Joyce White, senior, was elected to the secretarial position. "Briefly delayed because of carpentry work which will be finished soon, plans have been completed for tlje opening of Hope's Commons Room," it was announced last week by Commons Committee chairman, Robert Bonthius.

The Women's League contributed over two hundred dollars to the Student Council's drive for funds for the Commons Room last year. Their visit to the campus will include an inspection of the Commons Room where Robert Bonthius, Commons Committee chairman, has been asked to speak to the grouft about the project and the college set-up.

Would any of you suspect t h a t as simple and innocent a call as that might cause a minor catastrophe You are all advised not to make use of it anywhere on this campus—because you will surely be the object of a stampede if you do. For thirty-one of the burly male population of Hope college is legally answerable to the name "Bob", and is very liable to come tearing a t you. And w h a t you would do from that point on is only a big question mark. Football, oratory, debate, basketball, journalism, music—all these activities seem unable to survive without one or more "Bob" as a participator. And, as you know, this name has been made quite f a mous in these various fields. In fact we might say, without stretching the point too f a r , that our "Bob complex" forms a large part of the back-bone of Hope. Not only we students, but t h e profesaora also, have to u s e a

That the Government acts on the petitions of its people was shown last week as Rev. Oscar Maddaus, visiting lecturer on international relations, cited the historic armament reduction campaign of 1922. At that time there was a move to reduce armament expenditures, which President Harding ignored. In an effort to pass this legislation, thirteen million peace advocates wrote individual letters to the President asking for reductions in arms. The inevitable result was that President Harding's attention was given to the measure. "We cannot resist the public demand," he said. The reduction measure was passed and t h e United States Government saved three billion dollars, limited the size of a i r c r a f t carriers and scrapped several ships.

M.I.S.L. Announces Speech Events For Year The neutrality problem will be the subject f o r college debaters this year, it was definitely announced at the annual meeting of the Michigan I n t e r c o l l e g i a t e Speech League, held in East Lansing last Friday, September 29. Representing Hope at the state meeting. Prof. Schrier, Prof. DeGraaf, Virginia Ellison and Gordon Van Wyk, Pi Kappa Delta officers, took part in the wording of the question which will soon be officially announced. The conference also plans f o r other s p e e c h activities throughout the year. The question of neutrality has a wide appeal in the field of college debate, Prof. Schrier said. In planning activities f o r this year, the Michigan Intercollegiate Speech League has scheduled the State Extempore Speaking contests as the first of major forensic events. Although the men's and women's contests are separate, they will both he held at Kalamazoo college on November 28. In choosing their subjects, the men have a choice between "The National Political Issues and the 1940 Election" and "Civil Service." The women may make their selection between "The Democracy Issue in America" and "General Education on the College Level."

Black River Tussle Keeps Classes Clicking SENIORS

At today's chapel service three Hope students outlined arguments for individual and national neutrality. John Gillesse, freshman debater, noted the economic devastation that always follows in war's wake, and pointed out that neutrality is the one safeguard against a nation's industrial and monetary collapse. T h e o d o r a Meulendyke, Y.W.C.A. officer and W.A.L. leader, pointed out already discernable war propaganda and urged a levelheaded approach to all events in order t h a t the perspective of basic issues might not be lost. Robert Bonthius, Anchor Editor, emphasized the fact t h a t a determined public opinion, backed by convincing arguments can keep us out of war and ready f o r a useful peace. ARGUE NEUTRALITY TODAY The afternoon meeting will be an all-college symposium. Several students and faculty members have been invited to present four-minute views on specific phases of the whole neutrality problem.. Lively debate is expected to arise f r o m these discussions. In these the audience will be free to participate. Four minutes will be the limit of floor privilege.

The Anchor has founded the peace program upon the conviction that our government can maintain a neutral position. It shonld be em.- , phasized that neutrality depends upon an unemotional evaluation of '' both the fundamental issues and' : the ultimate accomplishments o f - • pacifist methods versus military. .• methods. Only such an evaluation ; can relegate the inevitable "outrages of national honor" to their real importance. Only such an evaluation insures that reason is never sacrificed for passion,- and', love is never m a r t y r e d by hate.- • . REGULAR FORUM The Anchor plans regular convocations of the Wednesday sym- ' posium, if the response of the Col--• lege demonstrates such Enthusiasm.,; There are many subjects Which an ; all-college group could prpfitably discuss.

A DEEPER MEANING T h i s afternoon's first College Forum will be welcomed by students and faculty alike. T h i s is said in the face of the realization that all the college will not attend the first session, for various reasons. But t h e forces that have given rise to the Forum are those which we all earnestly wish to f o s t e r on Hope's campus. And w e think that everyone will ultimately realize this and join in. F o r the College Forum idea is rooted more deeply than the mere idea of discussion, though the Forum will undoubtedly prove stimulating and thought-provoking in a most entertaining way.

It is rooted in our common desire to en-

rich student-faculty association. This can and will come, as w e all meet to exchange views.

5 0 YOU PLEDGED ' In another section of today's paper appear the choices of fraternity made by you, the new men of Hope's student body. The selection you have made is an important one in your collegiate life; for your fraternity will be either an everbroadening avenue to greater enjoyment of your four years here or an ever-narrowing road towards the dissipation of this valuable college experience. Of course you desire your newfound brotherhood to make life fuller for y o u ; yet it is up to you, individually, to desire which part your chosen fraternity is to play. A fraternity, by definition, is "a body of men associated for their common pleasure;" in other words, a fraternity is an instrument, or means, of enjoying common interests and friends: an avenue, so to speak, to a fuller college life. But all too o f t e n fraternity's real meaning is lost as the "pledge," excitedly enthusiastic over this new experience, invests his ^ L L in the society. In doing this he sells out his shares of Enriching Collegiate Experience. MEANS AND ENDS For the true perspective is lost and the fraternity is viewed as the one and only E N D of interest, instead of one of the several M E A N S of obtaining greater benefit from undergraduate life. Almost unrealizingly are built, upon this grave error, interests and friendships circumscribed by the fraternity affiliation, and such a mistake is as r u i n o u s as it is insidious. For, all too often, the error is not realized until after the four years are past and, in smug complecency, the society zealot is graduated, not from a college, but from a fraternity: for he knows little but his own group. Yet he has missed the great opportunities to gain a truly liberal education and to make friends; the loss of these leaves him with, not a rounded, but a sort of two-dimensional college experience. THE TRUE PERSPECTIVE

President Edwin Luidens called the first regular session of the Student Council to order a t 8 o'clock Tuesday, September 26, 1939. All members responded to roll call. Dean D y k s t r a , senior, was appointed in charge of the pep meeting f o r Thursday evening. A mass meeting was scheduled to be held in Carnegie gym to arouse student enthusiasm f o r the J.C.-Hope game Friday night. It was planned to introduce the varsity football men to the student body. Dean Dykstra, senior, and Ardene Boven, senior, are co-chairmen of the All-College Mixer f o r October

5. This f v e n t will be the occasion for tl^e fjebut of the frosh adorned in their new "Green." Gala plans are beinjj made f o r the event, which is one pf the major all-college meetings of the year. As hefid of the commons committee, Robert Bonthius, senior, presented to the Council the Constitution f o r the Commons Room which had been approved by last year's Council. With a few minor changes, it was accepted. It was decided to appoint the treasurer of the Council as treasurer of the common so t h a t a closer union could be had between the two.

WE INTERVIEW Rev. Oscar Maddaus "We should remain out of the European conflict, not to avoid our share of suffering, but to make ourselves more valuable to the order to be established a f t e r this war," was the opinion of Rev. Oscar Maddaus of New York, visiting lecturer to Hope's campus last week. Member of the Reformed Church committee on International Justice and Goodwill a n d recognized authority on international relations, Maddaus' opinions are h i g h l y valued by many groups. Last year he was called to Washington f o r consultation with eight hundred economists, political leaders, and sociologists for a discussion of international problems. As an exchange minister to England, sent by the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America in 1937, Maddaus obtained first h a n d information i n extensive European travel, holding conferences, interviews and consultations with citizens and officials of many lands. In 1936 he was a delegate to the Oxford Conference. He has also conducted classes dealing with social and political problems a t New Brunswick Theological Seminary. Asked for a solution to the present world problems, the expert emphasized the need for optimism. "The big job is to be done a f t e r the war is over," he said. "As a new world order will be forthcoming; it will be the job of all of us to work out the complex problems which always arise in a post-war era." He suggested t h a t a League of Nations, based upon the principles of the Kellogg-Briand Peace Pact, would be the ultimate answer to universal brotherhood. Rev. Maddaus reinforced his argument for the workability of a League of Nations on the grounds of United States history. He likened the present League set-up to the ineffective Articles of Confederation. "The Constitutional Convention at Philadelphia took over the. best parts of the Articles and in-

corporated them into our present Constitution; the same spirit could and would make a workable international constitution," he concluded. In consideration of the practical responsibilities of the post-war period, much insight will be necessary, the authority explained. He said that America's duty now is to study the reconstruction periods following the Revolutionary and Civil W a r s in order to better understand the social, economic and political courses which must be taken. We must be prepared to provide "the vitalizing authority of constructive thought which is imperative i n post-war economic, social and political problems," he said. Rev. Maddaus cautioned, "Beware of impatient radicalism, which will attempt to immediately impose the ideal solution." America must this time be prepared to move with reasoned insight in the direction of international as well as national order, he affirmed. Noticeable in Rev. Maddaus' views was the two-fold aim to preserve American neutrality for more valuable service a f t e r the war and the conviction that each American has a definite part to play immediately. He stressed the fact that, "the f u t u r e of the world lies in secondary lines among those of us with determined minds and single-hearted enthusiasm." While devoting much of his time to study of political and social problems, lecturing and peace work, Rev. Maddaus holds the pastorate of the Reformed Church of North Hempstead, Manhasset, New York. He has served this church for over a quarter of a century. Miss Minnie Schuleman, a social worker from Grand Rapids, will be the speaker at a joint meeting next week.

W.A.A. Board Plans For This Year Although the Women's Athletic Association has not held a meeting in this semester, plans are being made whereby a girl's sports prog i a m similiar to t h a t of last yeai may be carried out again this year. This program will include fall, winter, and spring sports. While the weather stays favorable those who have Student Council golf tickets are urged to go out and play golf. Another pleasant sport for this time of year is horseback riding. Advisor Jack Schouten, and Ruth Van Poppering, president of thi W.A.A., are making arrangement: for riding classes for beginners anc experienced riders. As soon as the f i n a l arrangements are made, notices will be posted on the bulletin boards so that the girls interested may sign up for one of the classes.

In spite of the f a c t t h a t the varsity already has two games played, the freshmen gridders are 3till preparing themselves f o r their first encounter. According to Coach Jack Schouten, t h e team will not play its first game until the 20th of October -vhen the yearlings will travel to Alma to meet a strong frosh group. With several last minute regis.rations, the team has been considerably strengthened and ought -0 shape into a well-functioning init. The latest addition to the :quad is Donald DeFouw, at quarerback position, who played plenty »f football for Creston High school n Grand Rapids. Late registration ilso brought Warren Hendricks of ienton Harbor out to practice last veek. He is a fullback of no mean ibility. Supplementing these boys n the backfield will be Art Timmer, George and Clarence Prins, »Vhitey Without a doubt, the main stalvarts on the frosh defense will be Carl and Mike Krompoticle. These wo lads really have what it takes 0 break into opposing backfields. 3ther linemen to show up well in icrimmages are Cecil Knapp and iud Holcomb at tackles, Don Dyk;tra and Gordon Albers at ends, ''rank Lokker at center, and Har/ey Koop, also a tackle.

Albion Grid Team Deals Upset To Alma The MIAA football race gut off to a good start last Friday night when Albion upset the dope bucket and handed the highly touted Alma Scots a 6-0 licking. Alma held the advantage until the last four minutes of play when a Briton p a s j 2onnected for the lone tally. In a non-conference game the same night, Hope was held to 0-0 by a fighting Grand Rapids J. C. eleven. Hillsdale, last year's MIAA champions, won their opener with a lopsided 34-0 count from the luckless Adiian Bulldogs. In the other league game, Kalamazoo whipped Olivet 20 to 6 to tie with Albion and Hillsdale for the MIAA lead. Olivet, the week before, had been nosed out 7-6 by Grand Rapids J. C. however, before any girl may enroll in riding classes she must have written permission from home. Plans are also being made for in M.I.A.A. Olympic Play Day vhich will be held at Hope this year. Mr. Schouten is very anxious that ill girls sign up f o r the sports in .vhich they are most interested so that the campaign for girls athletics at Hope may be successful.

With this Friday's f a m e , Hope begins its MIAA scheoule. Observation a t this point would make it seem t h a t we will outclass our opponents from Adrian. H.-lsdale walloped them thirty-nine to nothing this past Saturday, t n d though this is by no means a criterion f o r our actions against them, we should, with added pressure on t h e offtnse, take them. Lest Friday's game against the Grand Rapids Junior eleven wa". one of the finest defensive games we have ever played. Ward and Charon, right and left halfbacks for Junior, who last year ran wild against the Hingamen did not r e p e a t They were bottled up, and definitely so, seldom reaching the secondary. Our offense needs umph. Olivet scored against Junior even though they could not hold them. In our game, we more than held up our end in one of the finest punting duels ever to be seen around these parts, but our running offense lacked sustained drive. Both Ray Meyer and Marv Den Herder cracked the Junior forward line in a manner always pleasant to the fans, but there was no sustained march to the Junior pay-off zone. Among things to be noted and remembered is the f a c t that this year's team holds three sophomore tackles and two soph guards. This should make the center of the line a poor path to yardage f o r the next two years. Opponents please note. This week's game will be Adrian's first in Holland, and it is to be expected that we give Coach Oliphant and his team a good welcome. Similarly it is to be expected t h a t we support our team. Cheering in will be more this Friday. Give the team our support.
