First Of Three As Told to Carl DeForest Jordan Anchor F u r r i n Correspondent Donald A. Lubbers (this particular Donald A. Lubbers is the one that is related to a certain nian-about-campus whom we all know and is not to be confused with the Donald S. Lubbers who is unrelated to anything about campus as f a r as we know) is one of a very f o r t u n a t e trio of Hope students who traveled about Europe this past summer. Inspired by "the Voice of the Globe," the "Voice of the ANCHOR" sent yours truly on an interrogation mission so that their goings-about might be covered therein. Below you will find a parady of the interview given to the ANCHOR. Please forgive the literary style of the talk; we depart from the formalistic question-answer routine, having no patience with a regurgitated quiz program scheme, to a new medium, "kletzing." A nut-kernel's view (and not necessarily t h a t of the ANCHOR) of the trip would look something like this: I left Holland by car

and boarded the good ship, Volendam, at Montreal. Days later the skow landed in Rotterdam and we (other members of the "Experiment in Living" group) proceeded by chartered bus through the Rhine valley of Germany, stopping at Ausberg and Munich and ending our bus ride at Salsberg, Austria. From here a train took us to the work-camp at Doboj (rhymes with World W a r I G.I.). A f t e r three weeks the government of Yugoslavia treated us to a tour of the country. The route back from Yugoslavia ran Trieste, Venice, Florence, Milan, Geneva, Paris, Amsterdam, the Hague and Rotterdam. Finally a f t e r two wonderful months I returned again to Montreal and hence home. Since the ANCHOR wishes to depart from the J a m e s A. Fitzpatrick type of travelogue I will only include some of the "differe n t " experiences of the many, many that Don told me, even though a great number are equally interesting. While in Yugoslavia's work-camp we had no little trouble trying to keep even moderately clean. When I first arrived I had made it a practice to wash and bathe in the river near the camp but 1 felt that the place was not exclusive enough when I found a dead cow as a bathing companion one day. Next I tried a stream that led to the river. But this too proved unsuitable because of

the presence of not-so-dead cows. So finally I resorted to the community pump which I knew was contaminated. Another camp experience had an odor about it too. One day as I approached the dining hall 1 was promptly met half-way by a cook who gave me a certain sense of guilt about my cleanliness by sniffing me. I retained some composure but when this happened a second time I became quite flabbergasted till an English speaking member of the staff told me she was enthralled by the p e r f u m e of my shaving lotion and would like some of it (Yugoslavs will readily give you anything they have and by a like maxim will readily ask for anything they want.) 1 gave her the whole bottle which she proceeded to pour on her hair, so I l e f t her, probably the most popular girl of the "sniffers" in the dining hall. All in all if a summary can be made of a people I would describe the Yugoslavs as direct, friendly, helpful people who try very hard but just don't have the basic know-how of being the best of hosts. Don't miss next issue's exciting installment of this travel-series when your ANCHOR interviews Marge Feldmann. Will she escape f r o m the jaws of the f a m o u s French c r o c a g a t o r ? Will the limeys leave her blimey? Be with us next time when we'll go on tour with Marge Feldman.

JERRY FORD TO SPEAK HERE Eugene Conley, Tenor, To Sing In Recital October 17 Hope College students and all people f r o m Holland and community are anticipating the recital of Eugene Conley, world famous American tenor of the Metropolitan Opera Association, on Wednesday, October 17, at 8:15 P. M. in the chapel. Mr. Conley made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera House in J a n uary, 1950 and since then has been recognized as America's leading tenor. A f t e r his discharge from the Air Force in 1945, he made a most successful concert tour of the United States, Mexico and Canada. This was followed by a trip to Europe, v i s i t i n g l e a d i n g opera houses in Holland, Paris and Italy where he received such g r e a t acclaim t h a t within six months he made a second and much more extensive tour of Europe.

Mr. Conley spends much of his time working at his hobbies. He has always had a "green t h u m b " with machinery and loves to restore old to new. While in school

New System Devised For Events Sked The Student Direction Committee has recently appointed Dean Hinga to take care of the scheduling of all college events. This means t h a t if any student wishes to schedule a function, he must see Dean Hinga about the date. To simplify this scheduling a ledger has been prepared of the school year days and of the events taking place during the school year. Thus, when any student wants to schedule an event, he is able to look a t the ledger at any time and see if t h a t date is open.

Missionary Returns To Hope From China Mrs. William Angus, recently returned from mission work in China, is now taking two classes here on Hope's campus. A 1925 Hope graduate, and mother of two Hope students, Mrs. Angus is now brushing up on her college Bible and English courses along with the general housework of getting settled in the Kith street mission house.

This ledger came into being simply because the need was felt for such a book easily accessible to all students.

Food For Thought

W h a t a moan went up f r o m Durfee lounge last Thursday night when Mrs. Steininger announced the plans f o r new dining room procedure! The proposal was scarcely radical since it was the commencement of t h e plan used at Voorhees last year, under which dining room seats were assigned for two weeks. A host would be designated f o r each table and the hostess and some other girls, not necessarily friends, would also be assigned. The remaining men would fill in any vacant seats they chose. At first t h e m a j o r i t y of girls was opposed to the plan but a f t e r consideration of the reason f o r its inauguration, the majority fell to the pro side. Those who are against the new dining room plan are vehement in their objections. They pay their money f o r food so why shouldn't they be allowed to eat t h a t food with whomever they choose? But they also pay tuition and don't think a thing about sitting near or next to a person they consider perhaps not quite so superior. They say they are robbed of their freedom of choosing a seat to sit in. Suddenly the banner of democracy has been trodden upon by some malicious plot to subject students to regimentation. A f t e r all, they say, why should we be forced to sit at a table where the conversation bores and the contacts nauseate? Why, in two weeks time peptic ulcers due to unpleasant mealtimes may have developed f r o m this sort of thing! Poor things for having such weak stomachs, these girls — and f ^ P ^ v s — who find themselves so socially inadequate tha J unable to a d j u s t with reasonable happiness to the si *'!:<! ;• ' of mealtimes with anyone besides bosom buddies for two whole weeks. Two weeks! W h a t is two weeks out of a lifetime? One argument for the program is t h a t in this way boarding students can get to know one another better. Spending all one's time with only one's closest friends is hardly broadening or conducive to t h e social experience to be gained by mealtime conversation and fellowship. P a r t of a liberal education is learning to get along with other people. If some of TT ope's girls find it so difficult to endure outsiders to their cliques for ten days at meals, perhaps they might better spend their time at a finishing school for snobs. — V. S.

The Green and Red It is the time of the year when the traditional rivalry between the frosh and sophs becomes overt. It would be undesirable, even impossible under a Marxian concept, to eliminate this conflict of the classes. However, some limitations should be recognized in the struggle for class supremacy. Last week, a brilliant red flag was seen waving over Hope's campus. Immediately a senatorial investigation probed the possibility of the communists having taken over the college. The florid flag turned out to be merely a symbol of the sophomore's pride in their class, proving t h a t the frosh were not the only ones who could hoist their standards. The glorious sight of the fluttering red v/as doubtlessly an inspiration .to many second-year hearts. Unfortunately, t h e thrill was not experienced by everyone ^ i n fact, the administration had a r a t h e r negative reaction.,., When t h e results of t h e rivalry become destructive, class consciousness has overstepped its place. Harmless f u n is one thing, and cannot be strenuously objected to. Quaint and innocuous tricks, such as hanging a f r e s h m a n f r o m the toes and stabbing him with the s h a r p ends of porcupine quills make f o r salutary competition. Such demonstrations as flag raising and flagpole greasing, however, result only in a great deal of trouble and a financial burden on both classes. As Homecoming and the classes' pull draw nearer, t h e frenzy of opposition will become higher, in accordance with the law of t h e increasing pitch. The tendency will be to exhibit class spirit by painting large numerals over t h e campus and other similar demonstrations. I t is hoped t h a t this type of thing will be held down to a minimum, preferably to absolute zero. The pull, t h e floats in t h e Homecoming parade, and t h e Nykerk Cup Contest provide constructive channels f o r class exuberance. Porcupine quills will also be available in the Blue Key bookstore. — D. P.

Alcor And Blue Key Announce '51-'52 Officers, New Members Alcor Alcor, the senior women's honor society, elected a new member f r o m the present senior class at a dinner meeting on Friday, September 28. N o r m a Hoffman, from Bay side. New York and a member of the Delta Phi sorority, was chosen to join the group elected last May. She was formally initiated at a ceremony on Tuesday night in Gilmore Cottage. The group has been busy planning activities for the coming year. A coffee will be held some time in the near f u t u r e f o r all students and faculty. The selling of food in the dormitories and f r a t e r n i t y houses was begun last night and will continue throughout the year. The officers f o r the coming year are as follows: President, Barbara B r u i n s ; Vice-President, R u t h Koeppe; Secretary-Treasurer, Mary Olert and Keeper of the Archives, Maisie Koerteling.--Three of the Alcor members did not return to Hope's campus this year since they were married this summer — formerly Doris Adams, Mary Houtman and Louise Loula.

Homecoming Fun? Look At The Work The efficient handling of Homecoming activities will depend in part upon Sally Palen and Guy V a n d e r J a g t , who this year in conjunction with Mr. Clyde Geerling"s, will act as general chairmen of the event.

Blue Key On Tuesday, September 25, three senior men were elected into this year's Blue Key. They are David J. Hager, John C. VanderVelde, and Randall P. VandeWater. Congratulations to these men for their achievements and honor. Not being inclined toward withholding the information, the rest of the membership s t a r t e d out a t the approach of midnight to notify the newly elected members and to take them out f o r coffee. Dave Hager, a f t e r a lengthy search, was aroused f r o m bed, the last place in the world anyone looks for him, and taken bodily to the meeting place. Jack VanderVelde received a serenade at his home, checked to see if his callers were enebriated, and went off with them to the destination thinking t h a t a birthday party was to be held in his honor. (Jack's birthday was the following day.) Randy VandeWater was deceived into thinking t h a t the Milestone was being sued. He dressed rapidly, told his parents that he had a last minute assignment to take care of, and rushed forward to fight the fictitious leg'al battle for the Milestone. Finally having congregated a t Food Haven, fourteen happy seniors sat down to eat h a m b u r g s and coffee. Dr. Vogdt excused himself from the party because someone has to be awake during classes — at least the profs. But aside from the fellowship which these senior men enjoy together, their big task is to fulfill their motto "service to the school." A form letter was sent by the " K e y " to all new and t r a n s f e r students extending' them a welcome to Hope and congratulations on their


A few years ago there was an Anchor columnist who labeled himself t h e "Gay Philosopher." He was good, but he didn't last long.

As a direct result, no doubt, of this last quality, he u n f o r t u n a t e l y neglected to write anything until several centuries a f t e r his death. Consequently, his notes are in a generally loused up, metaphysical sort of state a t t h e present time. This is poor. Like most deceased peripatetics, he d r i f t s with t h e winds.

Another year is well underway, and again the gay voices of Hope can be heard from every corner of the campus — whether it be Hope chapel, Walsh, Durfee or Voorhees. They all have practice rooms with pianos, such that they are! Our music scholars from last year's senior class hold few in the music major category. However, our struggling young freshmen have talent galore and it's not hidden! In four year's time they should have the music faculty run ragged and happy. By now our Reformed Church world renowned glee clubs have begun their f a i t h f u l practice for Christmas doings and eventually the spring tours. Both clubs have many happy new voices added to the groups. It was rumored t h a t as many as eighty girls tried out for glee club. Such "eager beavers." Oh well, there's always next year, unless someone wants to s t a r t an entirely new group. They might make a Southern tour in the spring. And such excitement musically the college concert and assembly committee has in store for us. In only a little more than a week we'll all be able to hear a world famous American Tenior, Eugene Conley, from the Met. And there's more to come. So now I end with a last invite.

• New Foreign Students Interviewed - I

Majid Tadayon, Hamid's Brother, Boxing Champ By L. A. Fabunmi This year, as usual, a number of new "ambassadors without portfolios" have joined the student body at Hope. Among them is Majid Tadayon, younger brother to Hamid Tadayon, class of '53. Majid comes to us with a rich background of experiences. He is the son of Dr. Tadayon, a senator and professor of Arabic at Teheran University, Iran, and is the youngest of a family of four boys and a girl. A f t e r graduating from Darai Special High School of Finance, Majid received training at the Military University of Iran for six months, then joined the Iranian Army. He advanced to second lieutenant. Evidently he is a versatile athlete. In high school Majid was captain of the soccer, volleyball and

basketball teams. In addition, his athletic interests include boxing. He has been light-heavy weight non-professional champion of the Iranian and Turkish boxers since 1948. The "Champion" came to Hope under the influence of Hamid, his brother, and plans to major in physical education. He may enter the Golden Gloves in Grand Rapids f o r occasional boxing tournaments. Asked what he thinks of the present oil crisis in his country, the Iranian ambassador in embryo responded, "Frankly, the British should go." He sincerely hopes t h a t out of the chaos now prevailing will emerge an atmosphere of tranquility brought about by the cooperation and goodwill of people at home and abroad, among whom the Americans are conspicuous.

His greatest success in the high school football world was a c h i e v e d while coaching at Grand Rapids South where his 1939 and 1940 teams won the city championship. Vanderbush served as lieutenant in the Navy from February, 1943 until October, 1945. Upon release from the service Al assumed his duties at Hope college. Since then the Dutch eleven has finished second twice, in 1946 and 1949, both times losing the championship to Hillsdale in close encounters. In 1947 and 1950, Hope finished third, and in 1948, the Dutch were pushed to fourth.

They waited anxiously f o r several minutes 'til someone appeared on the scene with the key to the place. Once inside, they made themselves a t home, worked on the f a v o r s for the Round Robin Tea and accomplished much a t a f r i s k y business meeting. Roasting f r a n k -

Welcome back, guys and dolls; it certainly seems g r e a t to be back on the old Hope campus again, doesn't i t ?

No Revenge For Dutchmen; Whopped By Hurons, 20-7 By Jim Brown Hope inaugurated its 1951 football season by journeying to Ypsilanti to meet the Hurons of Michigan Normal. The Dutchmen were out to square accounts with the Hurons a f t e r last year's 19-6 defeat. The teams, both playing their first game, appeared over-anxious and somewhat jittery. It was the Huron's ability to capitalize on the Dutchmen's errors t h a t made the difference. The game began with Hope kick-1 pass from center on fourth down ing off to the Hurons. Hope was prevented Hamilton from punting given two g o l d e n opportunities out of danger. Taking over on when Normal lost the ball on Hope's 21, Normal wasted no time fumbles the first two times they as on the second play from scrimhad the pigskin. However both mage Paige passed to Pope for the Hope drives were stopped inches touchdown. This time the conshort of a first down.

Cross-Country Hopes Up; Letter Winners Returning




H a t s off to the Hope college football team f o r the "never say die" spirit which prevailed last Saturday night at Riverview Park. They proved again, and we hope they will continue throughout t h e season, the old adage, t h e team t h a t won't be beat, can't be beat. Bob Zuppke, former football coach at the University of Illinois, is credited with saying t h i s : It's not t h e s t a r t t h a t counts the most — it's the finish. The Dutch footballers put t h a t sentence into practice Saturday, and we are confident they will continue to do so, the remainder of t h e season. Passing out a few bouquets in regard to t h e home game last week. First, t h e team, and the coaching staff f o r the victory turned in; second, t h e managers, the unsung heroes of the team. John Johnson, Don Miller, Bill F o r t h and John Kenwell. These boys spend many hours each week, in the locker room, getting the equipment ready f o r use. This quartet does a countless number of duties and are usually the first to t h e practice session and the last to leave. On the field, they are assisting in every way possible. One of the managers, Don Miller, we would like to single out this week, for the commendable job of keeping statistics Saturday night. The members of t h e working press were pleased with t h e service, t h a t was prepared f o r them by Don. Another bouquet, to Jack Schouten, for his helping hand or assuring kind word for anyone of Hope athletes who receives an i n j u r y . This assistance of Jack's was again in evidence last Saturday. The late Knute Rockne, one of football's greatest coaches, used to s a y : Perseverance, Enthusiasm, and Pluck make PEP. Pep is something needed at every football game, or any athletic contest. The Hope college football team won t h e Carroll game, because they had the perseverence, they had the enthusiasm and they had the pluck, which gave them the pep to continue and score a victory. The team had the pep, but the f a n s did not. The crowd at the game did not possess much school spirit. They seldom gave more t h a n an inkling t h a t they were behind the team. There were no cheerleaders in evidence a t the game, but regardless, if you as a f a n have t h e pep, you can yell and cheer f o r your team. Let's hope there's more noise and cheering at the next home game. A football game is not complete without a band, and it is swell to hear the Hope college band strike up f r o m time to time with some of t h e peppy football marches. Hope opens conference football play Saturday afternoon at 2, a t Albion, and we hope several folks will be making the trip. Also the cross-country team is opening Saturday against Albion college. The first meet of the year will be held between the halves of the football game. Coach Vanderham says in regard to the cross-country team, prospects f o r a good season are good, and he is optimistic about t h e situation.
