SENIORS AT C0UNTRYCLUB Rrdured Class Of JunlorH Feast At Jenison Park Inn According to the regular custom, Hope classes held their parties ailffr Friday's pull. Junior revelers, out In goodly number, made merry by feasting and play Friday evening at a class party, held at Jenlson Park. I t was the customary affair, taking place annually on the evening following the FreshmanSophomore "Pull," and coming as it did at the end of a one-wtvk taste of real college work. It had the air of being a happy reaction and a tdmpdrary solace t o ( work-beset students. Remnants of excitement were kept over from the "Pull" and the spirits of all present rose as the dcHclous meal progressed. Music furnished part of the program. The rendition of a reading by Miss Ethel Heneveidt. a member of the Sophomore class of last year, met with the keen appreciation of all. Following the supper the time passed quickly In the playing of games and it was the general opinion t h a t the evening was well-spent. Supplying In pep and class unity what they have lost In numbers, the Juniors were able to make this party c succcss. Those left to carry on do so together and with spirit. The Sophomore class celebrated it's pull victory In royal fashion at the T,nlcfgid*> I n r . A fine dinner was served by the committee headed by Lois De Wolfe, and assisted by Evelyn Eteketee, Lois Brouwer, Edith Damson, Warren De Free and Herbert Jensen. Kasten's Melody Men provided a fine brand of music throughout the evening. The boys covered themselves V/ith glory by their remarkable achievement of the afternoon In the face ot heavy odds, were congratulated on all sides. Maurice Marcus, President of the class, presided at the entertainment that followed. Miss Barkema of tbe faculty proved to be most a gracious chaperon, and all agreed t h a t the class of 1030 had again enjoyed itself to the utmost. Last Friday evening, at Macatawa Hotel—the class of 1931 held Its first class party. From the start a wonderful closs spirit predominated—going far to contribute to the life of the party and the development of an "esprit de corps." The party was started with a bang —when George Damon, one of Hope's popular alumni led a number of songs and cheers. After a sumptuous banquet prpeared by Mrs. Hub Boone of the Ladles' Aid of the Thrld church, an Impromptu entertainment was given, A style show, presided over by Vice president Wlnegarden, Included some rather alarming prognostications as to the future dress among mankind. The stars of this revue included Lester Exo as "Tlllle The Toller", Miss Lois Keppel, Miss Margaret Westveer, Miss Luclle Walvoord, Miss R u t h Bolhuls and Miss TUlie Massellnk. All prizes for grace, beauty and charm were unanimously voted to Mr, ? Exo. Not all was nonsense however—for all enjoyed the piano solos of Ivan Stringer and Cornelius Koopman, Their ivory work contributed much towards the rounding out of a very effective program. One hundred and thirty present—! Great work "Frosh". The "dignified" Hope Seniors held a delightfully informal party at the Holland Country club Friday evening to celebrate the victory of t h e class they sponsored. The fact t h a t the members of the class of *28 are by this time so well acquainted tfhd t h a t this was probably one of their last parties together made the evening's festivities even more successful than thoee of former years. A delicious dinner was served by a committee whose culinary skill was greatly appreciated by their class* I c o n f l n u e d on ' P a j r a f




Business worries of the 1028 MUeotone have been placed upon the shoulders of George Kllley. according to the decision of the Sophomore class at a meeting of last week. This was a special election to fill a vacancy in the office of business manager of the annual.

Welcome Is Given By Y. M. Members Is A n n u a l A f f a i r Campus men received the glad hand of friendship from (he college Y. M. C. A. at a social meeting held In Chapel last week Tuesday evening. The new men received their first taste of the "Y" and Incidentally of its well known pie a la mode. Pres. Robert Richie led the devotlonals and spoke a few words to the fellows. Prof. Harry Hager gave a short talk In which he mentioned three specific things which the "Y" offered—Christian fellowship, friendship. and a weekly "quiet hour" for thought. Genuine Interest wiuj awakened in the meeting and the " f u n " part of the program met with tte approval of the fellows. Group contests in cheering and whistling furnished a great deal of amusement to the onlookers; Prof. Hager wlt'i calculating Judgment rendered the decision and designated the wl nners. This "Y" reception Is an annual affair, held with the purpose of gelting bettor acquainted with the neW men at school. On the ampus students meet as upperclassmen, sneering Sophs, and green-capped Frosh, but at "Y" they meet each other as fellows only. Irrespective of class or station. As such it welcomes all.

SOPHS COOL FROSH BY WINNING ANNUAL PULL AT BLACK RIVER OLDER CLASS T I G S HEAVY MEN THRU WATER IN GREAT VICTORY "Heavef All together, heave! Here they come. The first man Is in the water!" Such were the shouts heard on the Soph's side a t the annual Soph-Frosh tug-of-war staged on Black River a t Waverley Yards. Friday afterrioon. Sept. 30, 1027, Weather conditions were Ideal. For the first time in six days, the clouds disappeared enough to let the sun shine through. The heavy rains had caused the river to rlae above Ha normal depth, and In doing so nad stirred u p the mud so t h a t the water was aa thick as pea soup. The air was cold and invigorating after tbr rainy equinoctial season. Just right for putting more pep and nthuslasm Into an already excited crowd. At three o'clocic college students and townpeople began to collect about the ancient war scene. As this event is always watched with keen Interest by the entire city, it drxws an unusually large crowd. The spectators. this year, did not number as many as In previous fights, but were more peppy. The air seemed saturated with excitement. About threethirty students from the hlgh-8. hool and lower grades swarmed m aJter classes which were excused early. The Frosh were all assembled cn the south side of the river, yelling and flaunting their new banner In the faces of the Sophs. But M e r e was the Soph's banner? Didn't they have a banner? What's the matter? As these question? ran through the crowd, everyone looked Inquiringly at the Soph's side. Suddenly u p shot their red and gray banner accompanied by lusty ahouts. The eyes of the Frosh nearly popped out. Where did they get that banner? The Frosh well knew the cause of the delay, for In the morning some of their smart bunch went to Brink's Book Store to

I t was the common talk previous to the fight, t h a t the Sophs didn't have a chance. Soi^e were willing to wager t h a t the heavy Freshmen team would pull the light Sophs out of their holes at the first heave, but there wasn't a time when the Sophs didn't have the situation well in hand. Although the Sophs were grttlng the worst end in the campus fights, nevertheless, they are now the undisputed conquerors of the year. We all hope t h a t the sting of this defeat will be a lesson to all overconfident Frosh.

get their banner. While there they also managed by hook or crook, to get their hands on the new Soph banner, which had not yet been colled for. This p u t the Sophs In a bad way. but they were not to be outdone. A few stepped In a big car and sped to St. Joseph where they bad one made, and returned again In time for the pull. The Frosh will have to pay for the banner which they took, bccause the Soph's don't have to pay for something they didn't receive. At four o'clock the teams were ready to go. Both sides began rooting for their teams but at the sound of the whistle by referee. Jack Schoutcn, a certain tenseness seemed to grip the crowd. For the first half-hour the Sophs did no pulling, but waited and saved their strength for th® crucial moment. As the whistle blew for both teams to stand u p to pull, Clint Cole, the Sophomore coach, gave the signal for a quick heave, thereby getting the first good pull which started the over confident Freshmen coming. It was merely a matter of time before the Frosh went through the river, and the Sophs reigned victorious. The Sophomores in their frenzy of excitement grasped the rope and dragged it thru the town holding up traffic everywhere and causing a general commotion for about a half an hour. Then it slowly died away and they disbanded to prepare for their class parties.

The faculty as well as the students Joined in the evening's festivities. A goodly number of them stood in the receiving line, with the presidents of the Y. M. and the Y. W., extending the hand of welcome t o the old and new students alike. The interest which the instructors* show adds much to the success of an all-college function of this kind. After everyone had had a chance to meet everyone else. Bob Ritchie, the president of the Y. M., opened the program with a short prayer, followed by a few words of wclcome, and a message from the Association Union. Stanley De Free then favored us with a vocal solo. This was bucceeded by a word from the Y. W. president. Helen Zander. The rest cf the program consisted of a reading by Oscar Holkeboer, a saxaphone solo by Elmer Den Herder, a piano solo by Marjory Du Mez, and lastly a short talk from Professor Hager. After singing "In t h a t dear old town of Holland .Michigan," in the real Hope way. Bob announced that part of the program with which he had been tantalizing us for some minutes past. All were perfectly willing to ascend the platform to receive their share of the good things provided. A few cheers closed the evening and all went home to slumber, assured of the fact t h a t it had been well worthwhile. For the new acquaintances were many and the pleasure one not to be soon forgotten.

Last Friday saw the Freshmen and Scphomore classes struggle for supremacy in the annual tug-of-war across Black River. This affair; which draws town and college attention, has much in it which is to be commended. The pull at Hope College provides a sane outlet for the supposed hostility existing between the two lower classes. The average American college is the scene of class rushes, during the fall of the year, which commonly take a goodly toll of injuries and deaths. This physical danger is reduced to a minimum in the pull. Besides being a safe form of competition, it is also marked as being one which places no check on the student desire for struggles. There is the rivalry of class yells, the usual attempt at seizing class banners, the vieing of class coaches, the physical spirit of each class concentrated in the tugging of twenty men on each side and the final dash of banner-holders to safety. All this we say is to be wholly praised in the sane and safe struggle for class supremacy. o

Older t h a n the Law—A salesmanlike looking Inspector was surprised to find a dirty roller towel In the washroom. Indignantly he said to the landlord: "Don't you know t h a t It has been against the law for years to p u t up a roller towel In this state?" "Sure, I know It." replied the proprietor. "but no ex-post facto law goes in Kansas, and t h a t there towel was put u p ' before the law was parked."—Topeka Capital. O— The Elep, Some Ant—The American truth-teller was in form. "Talking of ants," he said, "we've got 'em as big as crabs horns, which they use as lances, charging each other like ravages." "They don't compare with the ants I raw In the Far East," said an incffcnrive individual near by. "The natives have trained them as beasts of burden. One of 'em could trail a ton load for miles with ease. They worked willingly, b u t occasionally they turned on their attendants and killed them." But this was drawing the long bow a little too far. "I say. old chap." said a shocked vclce from the corner, "what sort of ants were they?" "Eleph-ants." replied the inoffenfrtve individual.—London Tit-Bits. o Lawless Proceed'ng—The teacher was giving the class a lecture on "gravity." "Now. children." she said, "it Is the law of gravity that keeps us on this earth." "But please, teacher," Inquired one small child, "how did we stick on before the law was passed?"—The Tattler (London),

T H E Y. R E C E P T I O N

Nearly everyone who attended the Y reception Wednesday night will admit that there was something lacking in spirited enthusiasm and in the warmth of reception. Even the temperature of the hall did not lend to t h e comfort of the group, for while the song was sung— "When the wind is in the Palm trees," the young ladies were shivering in their formal gowns. Every member on the program did well, but the type of program was not well suited for a college reception. Religion has a most important place on this campus, but at a college reception this spirit of seriousness and reverence should not be cast over a group to dampen their youthful spirit of exuberance and fun. "There is a time to be merry and there is a time to be sad; There is a time to dance and a a time not to dance." A college reception should not be a prayer meeting. The very spirit of the occasion should be one of joyful fun and warm friendliness. A former doctor of divinity on Hope's faculty has suggested that the reception take the form of a college dance under faculty supervision. I am sure this suggestion would be enthusiastically endorsed by the majority of the student body. It may break the old college tradition, it may shock a few conservatives, but isn't it worth while to give it a fair trial? Someone might say that since some of the students can t dance—there will be hut a small attendance. At any rate, it wouldn't be worse than it is now, for many stay away because of the "dog time." Almost every college in America holds a dance as a reception to the freshmen, because it is very apparent—that this is the best method of "mixing" and making new acquaintanceships and friendships. It is more informal and less stiff than the usual introduction, etc. If the reception last Wednesday had been a ('ance, the low temperature of the hall (at any rate) would not have been so noticeable and might perhaps been even agreeable. Whether or not —the next freshman reception will be a dance or not— involves no gieat moral issue. It is simply a matter of expediency. RUSH!

One week has passed since the opening of school. The seven days have been filled with the word; R U S H for any Hope freshman who was interested in affiliating himself with a college club. The condition has been one of great sport for active society members. There is a definite thrill in this competition for the "cream of the campus." However, it would seem that rushing can be commended on that basis only. Last spring, the Anchor took a definite stand for the adoption of definite rules and regulations for the election of society members. A deadlock prevented the action. From all appearances, no practical plan could ever be proposed. But the societies have again passed thru a year of the rushing, and the Anchor query is: Was the plan satisfactory? If societies have been disappointed, now is the time to find some system similar to the one which worked two years ago. If the freshmen, are dissatisfied with it, they can do much to change the system. Shall we retain the unfair system?

LINDT'R ECHO By Nick Prakken Though the shouting and cries for the "pioneei'* of the air have somewhat faded in t h e distance: the strong feeling of hero worship, for the noteable "W e" is still foremost in the hearts of everyone. . It is true t h a t through his achievement, Lindy has set the world on fire with the desire to connect foreign countries by air as well as by sea. However, there are years of experiment and experiences to be gained before travel by air can be commercialized. The sad fate of the Dole* fiyers and the too numerous other' would be heroes have brought a b o u t this realization.

"Are you willing to swear t h a t you know more t h a n half of them?" demanded t h e lawyer. "Why, if It comes to that.
